Wheat harvest begins with few bright spots By RUTH CAMPBELL

A wheat field moves in the wind Monday afternoon.

Immigration bill clears Senate test

WASHINGTON (AP) — Historic immigration legislation cleared a key Senate hurdle with votes to spare on Monday, pointing the way to near-certain passage within days for $38 billion worth of new security measures along the border with Mexico and an unprecedented chance at citizenship for millions living in the country illegally. The vote was 67-27, seven more than the 60 needed, with 15 Republicans agreeing to advance legislation at the top of President Barack Obama’s second-term domestic agenda. The vote came as Obama campaigned from the White House for the bill, saying, “now is the time” to overhaul an immigration system that even critics of the legislation agree needs reform. Last-minute frustration was evident among opponents. In an unusual slap at members of his own party as well as Democrats, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said it appeared that lawmakers on both sides of the political aisle “very much want a fig leaf” on border security to justify a vote for immigration.

Hit hard by drought and spring freezes, southwest Kansas’ winter wheat crop has suffered this year, but there are some bright spots depending on where producers are in the region. Larry Kepley, who farms outside of Ulysses, just started cutting wheat Monday afternoon. The field cutting that was done Monday tested at 8.5 percent moisture with a test weight of 56. Yield estimate is probably eight to 10 bushels, he said. Kepley said he’s not sure of the protein levels yet. “We’re probably going to have

500 acres left to harvest, about half of what we planted last fall,” Kepley said, adding he usually plants 900 to 1,000 acres of wheat. Normally, he would expect to get 30 to 40 bushels per acre on dryland acreage and 40 to 80 bushels on irrigated land. Normal weight would be 56 to 58 pounds per bushel. “We have fields that were completely killed with the drought and freeze, and we have yields that have been appraised at between six and 10 bushels,” he said. Quite a bit of wheat in Grant County was harvested for forage, with the remainder frozen out,

or “droughted out,” Kepley said. Kepley, who is 74, said his parents bought the land he farms on in 1948, and except for a stint teaching and working for the extension service, he’s been back on the farm for 40 years. Scott City Co-op Association General Manager Gary Friesen said harvest began there Friday. “It feels like we’re going to be right in the thick of things in the next few days,” Friesen said Monday. “In terms of quality, we’re pleasantly surprised.” Friesen said he’s seen 58- to 60-pound tests weights. He hasn’t heard anyone talk about yields See Wheat, Page A2

Seeking solutions

Three community colleges form insurance group TOPEKA (AP) — Three Kansas community colleges have created an insurance consortium after their insurance provider raised rates and said it wouldn’t insure schools that allow concealed weapons on campus. The Independence Community College board of trustees voted last week to join Coffeyville and Neosho community colleges in the consortium. EMC Insurance Company said last week that it would raise rates because of the new gun law that comes into force next week, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. After EMC told the colleges of the increased rates, Neosho Community College president Brian Inbody searched for other options and found insurance broker IMA would offer competitive rates. EMC than made a counteroffer, which included a reduced rate and a one-year exemption from its policy against guns, said David Wallis, an incoming ICC trustee. “I truly believe when the word gets out that there is an option, that this team will be joined by K-12, municipalities and universities across Kansas,” he said. The three colleges are purchasing one policy that will provide “a modest savings,” in the first year, ICC president Daniel Barwick said. The savings is expected to grow as more groups join the consortium, he said. Wright Speciality is handling liability insurance for the consortium and has a neutral stance on concealed weapons on campus, Barwick said. The new law, which takes effect July 1, requires local governments and universities to allow concealed handguns in public buildings unless they install adequate security. Local governments that notify the Kansas Attorney General are allowed to exempt themselves until Jan. 1. Local governments also are allowed to seek an exemption through July 1, 2017, if they devise an adequate plan to secure the buildings they want to exempt.

Local law enforcement, agencies address underage drinking


A recent compliance check of local liquor and cereal malt beverage retail stores, in which 18 individuals were cited on allegations of furnishing alcohol to minors, has law enforcement seeking answers and looking for ways to curb the problem. According to a press release from the Garden City Police Department, the GCPD, in cooperation with the Kansas Division of Alcohol Beverage Control, conducted compliance checks on local liquor and cereal malt beverage retail stores on June 15. During the operation, cooperating individuals under the age of 21 were sent into the businesses in an attempt to purchase alcoholic beverages and were required to present their identification, if asked, and could not lie about their age. In several instances, they were asked for their identification and businesses still sold alcoholic beverages to them. While 34 local vendors were found to be in compliance, individual citations for furnishing alcohol to minors were issued

at 18 different locations. “We were very surprised about the amount of violations we had. In the past, we have had violations, but nothing to this extent. It shows that we still have work to do in this area,” GCPD Capt. Michael Reagle said. Reagle said that they are continuing to monitor those establishments and the individuals who were in violation of the law. The penalty for an adult providing alcohol to a minor, whether it be an individual purchasing it on behalf of a minor, or an employee of a liquor store, convenience store, grocery store or restaurant, selling to a minor, is a $200 fine and $70 in court costs. The penalty hasn’t deterred the activity, however, and the number of arrests and citations issued so far this year is already 24, compared to 12 in 2012 and 14 in 2011, according to the GCPD. The number of minors arrested for consumption of alcohol also has been on the increase since 2011, when there were 90 arrests. In 2012, there were 120 arrests, and so far in 2013, there have been 47. “In most circumstances, when we

encounter underage drinking, they are not real open about how they obtained their alcohol,” Reagle said. “There are many ways they get it, but it would be naive to say that those over 21 don’t purchase alcohol for minors.” For minors who are charged with consumption of alcohol, Reagle said, the fines and penalties are set by the courts. “If they are 18 to 20 years old, the municipal court sets it, and if they are under 18, they go through district court,” he said, Reagle said that along with compliance checks, the GCPD is utilizing several strategies to curb underage drinking, including community outreach and educational programs, such as Seatbelts Are For Everyone Night and National Night Out. “One day of our Student Academy is dedicated to underage drinking education,” Reagle said. “We have also worked with the Finney County Community Health Coalition on providing materials to middle school-aged students that covers the dangers of underage drinking.” The FCCHC was awarded a grant in See Underage drinking, Page A5

last two years (have) been drought years, and we’re expecting less than those two years. We’re hoping for 50 percent of a normal crop before harvest even starts,” Maskus said. A normal crop for Ag Pride’s 15 locations throughout southwest Kansas is 6.4 million bushels. John Holman, cropping systems agronomist with Kansas State University Southwest Research Extension Center in Garden City, said neither dryland nor irrigated crops are going to be spared this year. Around Pratt, he said, there are still respectable yields. He’s heard reports of 50 bushel yields, but also a lot of 20 to 40 bushel yields in that area. West of U.S. Highway 281, and especially west of Highway 183, “it just gets worse as you go west,” Holman said. The crop in eastern Colorado and pasture conditions are “extremely poor,” he said. “That matches up with what the U.S. Drought Monitor shows. That dividing line between 281 and 183, west of there the crop there has suffered. You’re going to have fields that have been adjusted out to be zero, especially Garden City west of (U.S.) 83, it gets particularly bad,” Holman said. “I think from what I’ve been hearing from different people, test weight in

western Kansas and eastern Colorado is going to be low this year,” Holman said. But cutting has just started, so “only time will tell. Combines are running pretty good around south-central Kansas, and they’ve started to cut around Dodge City pretty heavy,” he said. With temperatures expected in the 100-degree range, Holman said by the end of this week or early next week combines should be running all around Garden City. However, a certain number of fields likely won’t be harvested. Kansas Wheat Commission Chief Executive Officer Justin Gilpin, Manhattan, said when you hear crop adjustors have adjusted a field to zero yield, it basically means that field won’t be harvested. That is referred to in data and statistics as an abandoned field, he said. “I think we’re going to see a higher percentage of abandonment” than has been seen in the past decade for western Kansas, Gilpin said. Joe Beery, who handles crop insurance for KellerLeopold’s Cimarron office, said some fields have been appraised and “just been destroyed” because there wasn’t enough to harvest. Others were bad, but not so bad they won’t be harvested, he said. “The further west you go, like Syracuse and Elkhart, there probably

won’t be a lot of fields harvested,” Beery said. The central corridor is where average and some above-average yields may be found this year, Gilpin said, adding this would include Wichita to Salina and up through Beloit. Some timely rains helped the crop finish out, Gilpin said. “Whereas in western Kansas, southwest, westcentral and around northwest, (this is) one of the poorest years that we’ve had as far as yield estimates and production, unfortunately,” he said. “For Kansas to have

a good wheat crop overall, Kansas needs to have a good wheat crop in southwest Kansas. In a good year, the southwest Kansas district can produce more wheat than the state of California will,” he added. Kansas farmers also will be watching seed availability due to the crop’s shortfall this year. “Farmers may have to go a bit further to find seed or begin working with local seed producers or certified seed dealers in their area (to make) arrangements for planting this fall,” Gilpin said.

and doesn’t know about protein levels yet. The wheat has been dry so far, in the 11 to 11.5 percent moisture range. Estimates were revised downward, with drought and below-average rainfall being the major factors, along with untimely spring freezes. But hope remains. “We’re optimistic. We’re hoping it will turn out a little bit better,” than predicted, Friesen said. Most of what is grown in this region is hard red winter wheat, which is used for flour and bread products. “Winter wheats are very hardy. We plant those in the fall. They go dormant in the wintertime, then, of course, ... late in the spring or early summer,” harvest starts, Friesen said. Bill Maskus, grain division manager of Ag Pride in Dodge City, which has locations in Cimarron, Montezuma and Ingalls, said most cutting is occurring around the Dodge City area right now. Cimarron, Montezuma and Ingalls haven’t taken much. Kalvesta had 95,000 bushels through Sunday, he said. “But as far as giving anything on the others, they’ve just started, so there’s not much to report there,” Maskus said. Test weights have been 59 at Ag Pride, and as expected, moisture percentage has been dry. No one has reported anything on bushels per acre yet. How this year’s crop turns out won’t be known until “we’re almost done because of how poor the crop is,” Maskus said. “Unfortunately, the

Report: More children living in poverty By BRENT D. WISTROM The Wichita Eagle

TOPEKA (MCT) — More kids are living in poverty in Kansas, despite some improvements in key areas of health and education, according to a new report. During 2011, at least 19 percent — or 134,000 — of Kansas children were living in poverty, a 1 percent increase from 2010, according to the Kids Count report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The slight uptick came as Gov. Sam Brownback’s Task Force on Reducing Childhood Poverty planned to debate recommendations to improve state policies for families and kids. In 2011, about 19 percent of Kansas kids lived in poverty — a more than 53 percent increase since 1970, according to the Kansas Department for Children and Families. Meanwhile, in 2010, 47 percent of kids got free- or

reduced-price school lunches. The task force has focused on 18 indicators, including out-ofwedlock births, employment stats, education, family education, welfare use and health coverage. For example, out-of-wedlock births have climbed by 209 percent since 1980, a figure state officials say is tied to the likelihood of kids being raised in poverty and facing a variety of negative life experiences. It emerged as a key factor for state officials. State officials said that 1996 federal welfare reform led to big declines in poverty nationwide, but it’s crept back up. Kansas has seen a relatively steep increase in childhood poverty since 2008, with the population of children in poverty climbing from roughly 14 percent to 19 percent. But state officials say things must change because the state and federal spending on poverty is

unsustainable. Task force advisers say that education, employment and family composition are the three “pathways out of poverty.� “There is no one size fits all or a magic bullet or a special formula that’s going to make poverty disappear,� said Michelle Schroeder, director of policy and legislative affairs for the Kansas Department for Children and Families. Sherdeill Breathett, a Sedgwick County economic development specialist and a pastor at St. Mark United Methodist Church, gave a somber account of two of his brothers, who came from a broken home, struggled in school, have alcohol problems and are illiterate. But with more educational success, Breathett said, he found more opportunities. He said he feels the information is accurate — that education and family makeup are key. His younger brother completed his

education and is doing well and providing a good model for his son. “I don’t think this is rocket science,� he said. “We make it more difficult than it needs to be.� As a leader in a prominently African-American church, he said, he has been discussing these issues for years. Dan Lord, a professor of marriage and family therapy at Friends University, said Breathett’s story is one of the many very personal faces of poverty that are represented in the statistics. “The data that’s been supplied for us is very useful, and yet we can’t pretend that it’s crystal clear,� he said. “It’s very complex.� The task force planned to approve a set of recommendations for Brownback later on Monday that could help reduce childhood poverty.

Man shot in leg remains hospitalized By Stan Finger The Wichita Eagle

(MCT) — Police are still looking for a suspect who shot a 30year-old man in a drive-through lane of a west Wichita restaurant Sunday night. The victim told police he was waiting in the drive-through lane of a restaurant at 1705 W. 21st St. when a stranger walked up to his car at about 6:45 p.m. and asked him for the time, Lt. Doug Nolte said. The man in the car told police he became uncomfortable with the stranger’s behavior and tried to drive off. It was at that point, he said, that the stranger pulled out a handgun and shot him in the leg, Nolte said. The suspect, a man in his 30s, drove off in a red Ford Explorer. Witnesses told police the victim took something from his car and put it into the trunk before calling 911. “That was a little bit suspicious,� Nolte said, adding that there may be more to the story than the victim has shared so far. The victim was taken to Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis, where he is in fair condition. Nolte said police will ask the victim’s permission to open the trunk of his vehicle to see what he put in there. If he does not grant permission, they’ll get a warrant to search the car.

Boost or bust? Ethanol debate heats up WASHINGTON (AP) — It’s a dilemma for drivers: Do they choose a gasoline that’s cheaper and cleaner even if, as opponents say, it could damage older cars and motorcycles? That’s the peril and promise of a high-ethanol blend of gasoline known as E15. The fuel contains 15 percent ethanol, well above the current 10 percent norm sold at most U.S. gas stations. The higher ethanol blend is currently sold in fewer than two dozen stations in the Midwest, but could spread to other regions as the Obama administration considers whether to require more ethanol in gasoline. As a result, there’s a feverish lobbying campaign by both oil and ethanol interests that has spread from Congress to the White House and the Supreme Court. On Monday, the Supreme Court rejected a challenge by the American Petroleum Institute, the oil industry’s chief lobbying group, to block sales of E15. The justices left in place a federal appeals court ruling that dismissed challenges by the oil industry group and trade associations representing food producers, restaurants and others. Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, an ethanol industry group, hailed the decision as victory for U.S. consumers, who will

now have greater choice at the pump. The API called the decision a loss for consumers, safety and the environment. “EPA approved E15 before vehicle testing was complete, and we now know the fuel may cause significant mechanical problems in millions of cars on the road today,� said Harry Ng, API vice president and general counsel. The ethanol industry called that a scare tactic and said there have been no documented cases of engine breakdowns caused by the high-ethanol blend since limited sales of E15 began last year. The dispute over E15 is the latest flashpoint in a long-standing battle over the Renewable Fuel Standard, approved by Congress in 2005 and amended in 2007. The law requires refiners to blend increasing amounts of ethanol into gasoline each year as a way to decrease reliance on fossil fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a 16.5 billion-gallon production requirement for ethanol and other gasoline alternatives this year, up from 15.2 billion gallons last year. By 2022, the law calls for more than double that amount. Biofuel advocates and support-


ers in Congress say the law has helped create more than 400,000 jobs, revitalized rural economies and helped lower foreign oil imports by more than 30 percent while reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Along with the E15 court case, the API and refiners have swarmed Capitol Hill and the White House to try to have the current mandate waived or repealed. Ethanol supporters say E15 is cheaper than conventional gasoline and offers similar mileage to E10, the version that is sold in most U.S. stations. Scott Zaremba, who owns a chain of gas stations in Kansas, scoffs at claims that E15 would damage older cars. “In the real world I’ve had zero problems� with engine breakdowns, said Zaremba, whose station in Lawrence, was the first in the nation to offer E15 last year. But Zaremba said he had to stop selling the fuel this spring after his gasoline supplier, Phillips 66, told him he could no longer sell the E15 fuel from his regular black fuel hoses. The company said the aim was to distinguish E15 from other gasoline with less ethanol, but Zaremba said the real goal was to discourage use of E15. New pumps cost more than $100,000.

Forecasters: Drought could be gone in some areas by fall By Stan Finger The Wichita Eagle

(MCT) — Timely, well-placed rains continue to nibble away at the drought that has shackled Kansas for the past two years. The rains have essentially erased the short-term drought in the eastern half of the state, said Andy Kleinsasser, a meteorologist with the Wichita branch of the National Weather Service who focuses on drought issues. They also “put a pretty good dent� in the long-term drought, he said. Although nearly 75 percent of the state remains in some level of drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor, weather officials are heartened by recent data. According to the Climate Prediction Center, the short-term drought has ended in southeast Kansas, which includes the Wichita metropolitan area. Central Kansas needs 3 to 6 inches above-normal precipitation to end the short-term drought, while western Kansas needs as much as a foot of rain.

Enthusiasm drained by expectations

Sad path New tax plan puts Kansas headed in wrong direction.


he state of Kansas needs a new motto. “Ad astra per aspera” just doesn’t represent the state anymore. Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, president of the Kansas Senate, sent out a letter last week crowing about what a wonderful thing the Legislature had done drastically cutting income taxes and setting up the state Will drastic income-tax cuts to totally lead to business growth eliminate in Kansas? Add your comments at the end of the them in the online version of this editofuture. rial at “We live in opinion. a mobile society,” Wagle wrote. “Jobs grow and people locate where they can keep in their own pocket the maximum amount of their hardearned money.” We’re insulted. The only reason to move to this beautiful state is because of money? Quantity of cash trumps quality of life? We suspect a lot of real estate agents would say that one of the most frequently asked questions when they show a family a house is, “How are the schools?” Inconsequential, in Kansas. Once again, parents are suing the state to increase funding for public schools (Gannon v. State of Kansas). ... Wagle and Rep. Steve Brunk, RWichita, aren’t worried. “I think there’s enough votes now in the Senate and House that if the courts rule for Gannon, we might just say to the court that deciding expenditures is not your responsibility, thank you, and we’ll take it from here,” Brunk said. “I say this politely, but there’s a mood to give the courts the finger, so to speak.” Education could go the way of the arts in Kansas. Wagle’s Fair Tax model “targets the taxation of consumption (sales) rather than productivity (income).” Which is fine, if you have the income to cover the consumption you need, such as food and housing. If you don’t have enough “productivity,” you may find your taxes on “consumption” going up more than you expected. We don’t think that’s very fair; in fact, it’s downright regressive. There’s a lot to love about this state. It used to be a great place to live, before our focus became all about money. But Ad Astra per Aspera, sometimes translated as “a rough road leads to the stars?” You can’t get there from here anymore. — The Salina Journal

Time for a new education debate By ISAIAH POOLE


ou may have seen stories about the poor quality of Washington, D.C.’s public schools. You probably have also heard about how Michelle Rhee was brought from nearobscurity to take over the city’s schools, overnight becoming a national symbol of dramatic education “reform.” What you may not have heard is that after years of high-stakes testing and mass teacher firings along with school closings and reorganizations by Rhee and her successor and protégé, Kaya Henderson, many D.C. public schools are no better. In some cases, they’re worse. That should give us all pause as we jump to change local and national education policies based on catchphrases that mask decisions that will do lasting harm to our children. The Washington Post reported in June that test scores declined at 10 of the 18 schools that were reorganized under Rhee and Henderson between 2008 and 2010. Test scores are up in only six of those schools — two others have since closed. That’s a pretty poor record. As even Henderson conceded: “We have not always done reconstitution well.” Track records like this one are fueling rising anger around the country over socalled reforms that offer lofty promises to justify the disruption of neighborhood schools, upended curriculums driven by standardized tests, widespread privatization, reduced budgets and personnel policies that leave teachers feeling under siege, demoralized and devalued. The Obama administra-

tion’s “Race to the Top” initiative, intended to encourage a “common core” curriculum buttressed by testing and teacher “accountability” measures, is galvanizing opposition from both the right and the left. “An Education Declaration to Rebuild America,” backed by a group of about 50 largely progressive education experts and academics, is the latest effort to bring some common sense to an often-fraught debate. It was released by the Education Opportunity Network, a new organization created through a partnership between the National Opportunity to Learn Campaign and the Institute for America’s Future, where I work. It has garnered support from more than 20,000 citizen endorsers. The so-called education reform agenda, the declaration says, “imposes top-down standards and punitive high-stakes testing while ignoring the supports students need to thrive and achieve.” The alternative, the declaration suggests, would — among other things — declare that public education is and always should be a public good, with both adequate public support and public accountability. A child’s access to a good public education shouldn’t be determined by which side of the tracks the child lives on or the parent’s ability to work the system. Teachers should be treated as valued professionals, not as disposable widgets in a soulless machine. And the profession should be designed to

attract our best and brightest. National responsibility should complement local control. And reform should be “supports-based” rather than “standards-based,” focused on providing “every student with the opportunities and resources needed to achieve high standards.” One of the successfully reconstituted D.C. schools might offer a partial glimpse at what this education declaration has in mind. According to the The Washington Post, Scott Cartland was brought in to be the principal of a “chaotic and broken” Wheatley Education Campus in a low-income section of the city in 2008. Among other things, he poured resources into mental health and social workers and connected troubled youth with a community health organization. Teachers worked more closely with parents. One result: Reading and math proficiency scores at the school doubled. A series of protests and grassroots organizing drives in Florida, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Washington state — just to name a few — amount to a demand for a new debate over education policy. Consider the Education Declaration to Rebuild America a reset button that calls on our leaders to stop swinging the wrecking ball at public schools. It’s time to focus on what the children who attend public schools really need to succeed. Isaiah J. Poole is the editor of, the website of the Campaign for America’s Future.

House speaker’s legacy at stake H

ouse Speaker John Boehner stopped by the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill on Thursday afternoon to pitch a gathering of the National Association of Manufacturers on the Republicans’ plans for jobs and growth. “While my colleagues and I don’t have the majority here in Washington,” the speaker vowed, “we will continue to pursue our plan.” Or will they? Not an hour after those words were uttered, Boehner’s House Republicans dealt him the latest in a series of humiliations. Sixty-two Republicans defied him and voted against the farm bill, defeating a major piece of legislation Boehner had made a test of his leadership by pushing for it publicly and voting for it personally — something speakers only do on the most important bills. The dispute this time was over food stamps and agricultural subsidies, but the pattern was the same: House leaders lost Democratic support by tilting the bill to satisfy the Republican base, but a group of conservative purists remained upset that the legislation didn’t go far enough. Much the same dynamic confronts Boehner as the House prepares to take up immigration legislation next month. A similar set of pressures has kept Boehner from negotiating a long-term budget deal with the White House. In all instances, Boehner faces a choice: his job or his legacy. He can enact landmark compromises but lose his job in a conservative coup. Or he can keep his job but get nothing much done. With a few exceptions — the “fiscal cliff” deal, Hurricane Sandy aid — Boehner has chosen job security over achievement. He did it again this week on immigration, announcing that he doesn’t “see any way of bring-

ing an immigration bill to the floor that doesn’t have a majority support of Republicans.” That promise, which is essentially the same as saying he won’t allow the House to take up legislation that includes a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, puts him on a collision course with the Senate, where a fresh compromise on border security negotiated by Republican Sens. Bob Corker (Tenn.) and John Hoeven (N.D.) make it likely that chamber’s legislation, which includes citizenship, will have a large bipartisan majority. Boehner’s stance blocking an immigration compromise may preserve his speakership, but it would keep his party on what Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) calls a “demographic death spiral” as Latino voters shun the GOP. Beyond the party, Boehner’s position raises the likelihood of failure on another high-profile issue for a Congress that continues to reach new lows in public esteem. Gallup last week found Americans’ confidence in Congress at 10 percent, the lowest ever recorded for any institution. And that was before Thursday’s farm bill debacle, which saw lawmakers debating all manner of parochial items — olive oil, hemp, Christmas trees, shellfish, even a dairy amendment involving Greek yogurt sponsored by the aptly named Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) — before killing the whole bill. The bill, which had been awaiting action for a year, was never going to get much Democratic support because of

$20 billion in cuts to food stamps. But Republicans lost what support they had on Thursday when they passed an amendment, opposed by all but one House Democrat, adding new work requirements to the food stamp program. That left only 24 Democrats on board, not close to enough to offset the dozens of Republicans who wanted the deeper cuts demanded by conservative groups such as the Club for Growth. The agriculture committee chairman, Frank Lucas (R-Okla.), pleaded on the floor for colleagues to “put aside whatever the latest e-mail is” and vote with him. “And if you don’t,” he added, “they’ll just say it’s a dysfunctional body, a broken institution full of dysfunctional people.” After the farm bill went down, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) came to the floor to blame Democrats for the collapse — an argument that might have made sense if Republicans hadn’t just forced through an amendment Democrats called intolerable. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), the minority whip, reminded Cantor that “25 percent of your party voted against the bill ... and your side’s going to continue to blame us that you couldn’t get the votes on your side.” Hoyer invoked Newt Gingrich’s 1998 speech calling conservative holdouts in the House “the perfectionist caucus.” Gingrich did indeed call the Republican hard-liners perfectionists and “petty dictators.” He soon lost his job as speaker, in part because of that remark, but by then he had reached compromises with a Democratic president that righted the government’s finances. It’s an example Boehner would do well to recall.

resident Barack Obama has a big problem. If he isn’t careful, it could cause his presidency to unravel. In fact, many believe it already has started to. If a new CNN/Opinion Research poll is more than a measure of the political moment and instead reflects a trend, then he’s in a heap of trouble. It not only shows slippage on how he’s handling various issues, but overall his disapproval rate has shot up to 54 percent. Worst of all, the percentage of those who believe he is honest and trustworthy has slipped below 50 percent for the first time. For a leader who has always gotten high nice-guy points, that’s huge. Obviously, the timing matters. He’s been chewed up by Republicans who see blood in the water from the administration’s self-inflicted wounds and perceptions of heavy-handedness and ineptitude that his political enemies have exploited. There has been a big drop among independents and, notably, those who formed his base, the young and other blocs of supporters. A common lament from those who were inspired by his “Change We Can Believe In” message is that he has disappointed them. Nothing has really changed — same stuff, different president. For some of them, his rationalizations for massive surveillance are identical to the ones from the previous White House. He may seethe at comparisons to Dick Cheney, but the fact that his natural allies are drawing the parallels and that he even has to dispute them demonstrate the depth of his credibility problem. In a fantasy debate with him, one of them might say, “I knew Barack Obama ... You’re no Barack Obama.” The malaise buttons for progressives are pushed by what they see as vacillation. What the Obama people describe as deliberate, liberals call hesitant on issues that cover much of the left range, from environmental, to social, to national security, to economic. Their standard-bearer, they moan, has been too quick to lower the banner in the name of compromise and expedience. Deal-making is obviously necessary, but if the accommodations succeed only in creating a consensus of dissatisfaction, then we’re stuck. Promises are ridiculed, and the reputations of those who make them suffer. That’s what’s happening to Obama. To be sure, these same polls show even greater contempt for the folks on Capitol Hill, where all progress goes to die. The latest from Gallup shows just a 10 percent approval — the lowest ever. Congress is now the most unpopular institution in the U.S. of A., far beneath even journalists. That’s low. The Republicans continue to be dominated by their extremists, who seem disinterested in correcting impressions that they are a bunch of intolerant crazies, on the wrong side of gun control, gay rights, immigration reform, abortion — you name the social, economic or cultural issue. Their response? They double down. Mr. Obama has always benefited politically from the comparisons, but recently some of the wild flailing by the other side has landed. That doesn’t bode well for this White House, nor does it offer a lot of hope for a nation that is slipping. It’s also noticeable overseas. When he was just starting out, Barack Obama and the hopes he represented basked in worldwide adoration. Although he still gets favorable marks across the ponds, the hot love affair has been turned lukewarm by accumulated disillusionment. He has not delivered. Guantanamo Bay, which he pledged to close, remains open. Add to that embitterment against deadly drone attacks, and now the revelations about massive cyberspying, and we have a growing international consensus that Obama is just another same-old, same-old American leader. At home and abroad, unmet expectations have drained the enthusiasm of those who were inspired by his rhetoric. Frustration in his base could sap any energy from the remaining Barack Obama presidency, which could be remembered by his natural supporters as a big disappointment.

Underage drinking: Local agencies seek to address problem Continued from Page A1

2008 from the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, along with 13 other Kansas counties, to educate local liquor store owners about laws against selling to minors and to educate youth about making better choices. “We had good results in working with youth to help them understand why they shouldn’t drink,” Ver na Weber, executive director of the FCCHC said. “Kids become aware of doing other things and to make good choices.”

Communities that Care, a coalition-based community prevention organization that aims to prevent underage drinking, tobacco use, violence, delinquency, school dropout and substance abuse, conducts annual surveys of intermediate, middle and high school students. According to findings from CTC surveys regarding alcohol use that were conducted in Finney County from 2007 to 2012, a 9.4 percent decrease was reported in the survey category, “past 30-day alcohol use,” a 27.6 percent change from 2007 to 2012. Finney

County also demonstrated a 4.9 percent decrease in the survey category, “youth binge drinking,” a 26.1 reduction from 2007 to 2012. Both were larger decreases than was seen statewide in that same time period. Because of the survey’s findings indicating a decrease in underage drinking, Weber was surprised by the number of citations issued last week. “We worked on changing youth behavior but also worked with liquor store owners, so it’s something you just have to keep at all the time,” Weber said, referring to staff

turnover at retail locations as a possible contributor to the number of citations issued. Despite the fact that the grant ended last year, Weber said the FCCHC had some funds remaining, allowing the group to continue to educate youth about underage drinking through this summer. One of the presentations the coalition is doing is called, “Too Good for Drugs,” a schoolbased prevention program that has a separate, developmentally-appropriate curriculum for each grade level. The presentation takes place once a week at the FCCHC’s

Neighborhood Summer Camp at the Garden Spot Apartments and the Garden City Recreation Commission’s Summer Playgrounds, held at Scout and Finnup parks. The GCRC’s Summer Playground program is for kindergartners to 13-yearolds, and Amber Witt, recreation specialist at the GCRC, believes that reaching children in that age group will have a longer lasting impact. “If they learn it now, hopefully, by the time they’re in middle school, they have been educated enough to say no,” Witt said.

Important food safety tips to follow at local farmer’s markets By BARBARA ADDISON and LEHISA DE FORNOZA Finney County Extension agents

Food safety at farmer’s markets From spring into fall, farmer’s markets provide a variety of fresh produce, as well as many other foods. Most people think that food safety problems occur solely from eating tainted meat, dairy and processed food products. Many people believe locally grown fruits and vegetables are completely safe. Unfortunately, several cases of foodborne illness have been connected with fruits and vegetables. Being a “locavore” and eating foods grown near where you live have become a popular practice, as many people want to support their local farmers. Here are some tips to keep in mind the next time you buy produce at your local farmer’s market. • Get to know your growers: Buying local doesn’t eliminate opportunities for contamination, which is why it’s good to get to know your local farmers. Ask your growers about what kind of pesticides they use and how they keep their products free from bacteria and other contaminants. You can also ask them about how to store produce, how to test for ripeness and even for new ways to prepare your favorite fruits and vegetables. • Get to know your seasons: Pay attention to when your favorite fruits and vegetables are in season, that way you can eat local foods when they are at their peak taste, most abundant and least expensive. Although it’s great to eat local, it’s not always possible, so don’t rule out including frozen fruits and veggies in your diet. Fruits and vegetables chosen for freezing tend to be processed at their peak ripeness, a time when — as a general rule — they are most nutrient-

packed. With that in mind, experts say that it is more important for your health to eat a varied diet, including plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and whole grains no matter where they are grown. • Don’t forget to wash: No matter where your produce was grown, always wash it thoroughly before serving or consuming. All produce is subject to dirt, dust and other pathogens. While most fruits and vegetables need to be washed thoroughly in cold water, some types of produce require a little more attention. • Salad greens: When washing spinach or lettuce, experts recommend filling a bowl with water and rinsing them gently to remove dirt particles and other contaminants. • Apples, pears, peaches: Fruits with stems are known to trap dirt and bacteria more easily that other produce, so be sure to always wash and rub them under cold water. • Oranges, avocados, melons: When preparing to eat fruit with a rind, it’s important to wash the item even if you don’t plan to eat the outside. Rinse the skin under cold water and rub it with a brush or a cloth to loosen bacteria and dirt. Bacteria can get stuck in the fruit’s crevices and transfer to your hands, or to the knife you’re using to

Liquid assets Water is necessary to protect the body’s health. Some critical functions of water within the body include: • Transportation: Blood, which is 83 percent water, is the body’s transportation system for oxygen, nutrients, hormones, enzymes and other lifesustaining materials to the cells. Blood also carries waste products to organs

for removal. • Lubrication: Water is present in the mucous linings of organs and in the fluids between internal organs. These fluids make movement easier and reduce friction within the body. Water also lubricates joints, making it easier for our bodies to move. • Digestion: In the digestive tract, water is present in mucus, salivary juices and digestive juices. These help break down certain foods and transport food through the digestive system. • Temperature control: It’s important for good health that the body’s temperature stays within a narrow range. Since water changes temperature slowly, the water in our bodies is able to store heat and help regulate temperature. Water also helps regulate body temperature through perspiration. Heat leaves our bodies as we sweat, and the water evaporates off the skin. • Waste removal: Our bodies produce wastes in

many ways. Water plays a key role in removing them through our urine and bowel movements. Wastes also leave our bodies through perspiration and in the air we exhale. Water plays an incredible role in keeping your bodily systems functioning properly. Dehydration may lead to migraine headaches. Muscles are weakened when they are slightly dehydrated. Dehydration can cause muscle cramping and loss of muscle coordination. Dehydration can damage your kidneys because they have to work too hard to remove toxins and waste products. Water contains no calories. Drinking water may help reduce appetite. Water assists the body in metabolizing fats. When you feel hungry, your body is often only dehydrated. Fluids are the most important foods consumed during the day. For more information on your “Liquid Assets,” contact the Finney County Extension Office.

Jacquelline Bigar King Features

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Someone whom you deal with regularly could be out of sorts. Steer clear of this person for now. In the meantime, focus your attention on what counts for you. Check out a real-estate investment in the next few weeks. Tonight: Hang out with friends at a favorite place. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Defer to a boss who has a strong vision of what he or she wants. In fact, the more responsibility this person has, the happier he or she will be. Weigh the pros and cons of a new purchase, whether it is a car or something involving communication. Tonight: Speak your mind. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You will be more willing to venture out than you have been in years. Consider your options carefully regarding a financial matter. You might want to talk to someone who knows more than you do about this. You could be overly optimistic! Tonight: Follow the music. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Jupiter enters your sign today. This transition brings you good luck, and it also marks the beginning of a new life cycle. Use it well. Right now, a discussion with a partner or close friend has a unique intensity. Listen carefully and revise your plans if need be. Tonight: Dinner for two. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might feel as if you are the center of attention, until you have to bend to keep the peace. In any case, the cards are not stacked in your favor. Avoid taking any risks. News from someone at a distance could leave you wide-eyed. Tonight: Enjoy the moment with friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Zero in on priorities in your day-to-day life. You might have a lot of energy that’s being focused on organizing and making your life easier. Do not cancel an appointment. Some good fortune will stem from it -- maybe not immediately, but soon. Tonight: Hang with friends.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Taming your imagination will help you funnel your creativity appropriately. You know the virtues of finding solutions and showing compassion to others. Losing your temper won’t help. A misunderstanding does not need to go any further. Tonight: Act as if there is no tomorrow. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You’ll want to rethink a tension-driven reaction. You might not want to think through the issue, but it would benefit you to do so. If nothing else, try to look at the situation from other people’s point of view. A change in perspective will help you. Tonight: Entertain from home. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You will be more open with someone -- a partner or loved one -than you have been in the past. This person will become more transparent as a result. With gentleness and care, this relationship could open up. Tonight: Visit with friends, but first check in with a loved one. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You’ll feel more comfortable relating to others. What had been a problem in the past will be resolved easily. You might have more choices than you realize. Be sensitive to others in a discussion. Know what you want -- do not play around. Tonight: Sort through invitations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You need to understand what is happening around you. Observation helps. In the next few weeks, you might notice that you’ll have more energy than you have had for a while. This news will make you smile, as you could have more to do every day. Tonight: Do your own thing. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

HHHH Allow your imagination to lead the way. A loved one might delight in your humor and lightheartedness. You will see a situation from a different perspective as you learn what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes. Tonight: You might want to vanish with a loved one.

Royals’ hitting is betting on Brett KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — George Brett likes to say that hitting was always easier for him to do than say. After all, he was one of the best of his generation — of any generation, really. His pursuit of the near-mythical .400 mark during his MVP season of 1980 came up just 10 points short, and to this day remains one of the most spirited cracks at it since Ted Williams reached it in 1941. But for Brett, stepping into the batter’s box, peering back at a pitcher and then putting the right swing on the ball came naturally. He worked his tail off, of course, but when someone would ask him to explain his sweet swing, he would usually just shrug. It was easier to do than say. Well, now he’s getting paid to say rather than do. He’s three weeks into a monthlong experiment as the Kansas City Royals’ hitting coach, and just like Williams and scores of other greats who have tried to become coaches, Brett is finding results maddeningly slow to show.

“I’ve seen results in batting practice. I want to see them in games,” Brett said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I’ve seen some guys alter their swings a bit, their stances a little bit, and they’ve had a little success, which is good. Some guys are working on it and it looks good in BP but it hasn’t carried over to a game yet. “When it carries over to a game,” he added, “we’ll be OK.” The question that will soon face Brett is whether he’ll be around to witness it. The Hall of Fame third baseman turned down numerous opportunities to coach over the years, mostly because he didn’t want to deal with the daily grind. But he also didn’t know whether he’d be any good at it, a hard admission for someone who has always excelled in baseball. So even when the Royals reassigned hitting coaches Jack Maloof and Andre David and came calling once more, Brett accepted the interim job with reservations. He told manager Ned Yost and general manager

Dayton Moore he would give it a month and see how things were working out. That month is quickly approaching an end and the results so far — at least in blackand-white terms — have been modest at best and a humbling disappointment at worst. The Royals were hitting .261 when Brett put on the old No. 5. They were averaging four runs a game, and ranked near the bottom of the American League in just about every statistical category. Since he took over, the team is batting just .247 and scoring about 3.7 runs per game. Their walk rate has improved ever-so slightly, but their power numbers have declined. They’re hitting fewer home runs and extra-base hits, which is hard to imagine given the lack of power they were already demonstrating during the early part of the season. “As an offensive group, we haven’t come together as a team,” Yost acknowledged. “We’re still trying to take on too

Well, Yost believe they can. In just about every relative statistic, the Royals have regressed under Brett, but there are plenty

No more Nadal Associated Press

Rafael Nadal of Spain reacts as he loses a point to Steve Darcis of Belgium during Monday’s Men’s first round singles match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships in Wimbledon, London.

Spaniard stunned at Wimbledon in opener by Darcis LONDON (AP) — Just like that, in a span of 15 days, Rafael Nadal went from French Open champion for a record eighth time to first-round Grand Slam loser for the only time in his career. Limping occasionally and slower than usual, but unwilling afterward to blame an old left knee injury, the two-time Wimbledon winner exited 7-6 (4), 7-6 (8), 6-4 Monday against 135thranked Steve Darcis of Belgium — one of the most stunning results ever at the All England Club. “Nobody remembers the losses. People remember the victories,” Nadal said, shaking his head as he leaned back in a black leather chair. “And I don’t want to remember that loss.” Everyone else definitely will. It certainly belongs in the same category as his loss a year

ago at Wimbledon, in the second round to Lukas Rosol, a player ranked 100th at the time. After that setback, Nadal missed about seven months because of his bad left knee. Since returning, he had gone 43-2 and reached the finals at all nine tournaments he entered, winning seven. Most recently, in Paris, he collected his 12th Grand Slam trophy, tied for third-most in history, while extending his winning streak to 22 matches. “Two weeks ago, I was in a fantastic situation, winning a fantastic tournament,” Nadal said. “Two weeks later, I lost here in the first round. That’s the positive and the negative thing about this sport.” His early defeat rendered moot all the debate in the preceding days about whether Nadal’s No. 5 seeding was appropriate

or whether Wimbledon officials should have bumped him higher because of past success at the grass-court tournament. Because of Nadal’s low-forhim seeding this time — his ranking slid during his time off — he wound up in the same half of the draw as seven-time champion Federer and second-seeded Andy Murray. A possible NadalFederer quarterfinal loomed, as did a potential Nadal-Murray semifinal. So much for that. “Pretty irrelevant right now,” said Murray, who won in three sets Monday, as did Federer. “It’s obviously surprising. But, you know, the consistency that Rafa, Roger, Novak have shown in the Slams over the last five, six years, it’s going to be almost impossible to keep that up forever.” While Nadal was struggling,

Federer and Murray looked the way title contenders are supposed to in the first round. Federer, the defending champion, needed all of 68 minutes to beat 48th-ranked Victor Hanescu of Romania 6-3, 6-2, 6-0 on Centre Court, as former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice looked on from the Royal Box. In the most noteworthy women’s result, fifth-seeded Sara Errani, the 2012 French Open runner-up, lost 6-3, 6-2 to Puerto Rican teenager Monica Puig. Maria Sharapova, the 2004 Wimbledon champion, won in straight sets. So did second-seeded Victoria Azarenka, but not without a scare. Azarenka twisted her right knee early in the second set, but after about a 10-minute break she finished off a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Maria Joao Koehler.

of reasons to explain it. It takes time for changes to take hold. Subtle tweaks to a swing and, more important, a mindset can sometimes take months to reflect in the numbers. In some cases, players have See Hitting, Page A12

UCLA takes CWS opener OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Adam Plutko limited Mississippi State to a run on four hits in six innings, and UCLA survived some anxious moments to beat the Bulldogs 3-1 in Game 1 of the College World Series finals Monday night. Plutko retired nine straight to start, worked out of trouble twice and turned the game over to the bullpen in the seventh. The Bulldogs (51-19) left runners in scoring position four of the last six innings. The Bruins (48-17) are one win from their first national championship in baseball and the school’s record 109th in a team sport. Mississippi State must win Game 2 on Tuesday night to keep alive its hopes for its first NCAA title in any sport. UCLA made it 3-0 in the fourth on Eric Filia’s twoout, two-run single off Chad Girodo, who replaced starter Trevor Fitts (0-1) in the second. That was the last of the Bruins’ six hits. Plutko (10-3) walked in the Bulldogs’ run in the fourth. UCLA is 40-0 when leading after seven innings. There was drama all the way to the end. The estimated 8,000 Mississippi State fans at TD Ameritrade Park started the “Maroon and White” chant in the bottom of the ninth after C.T. Bradford and pinch-hitter Sam Frost singled to put runners on first and second with one out against closer David Berg. Nick Ammirati flew out, and pinch-hitter Jacob Robson ended the game with his comebacker to Berg, who sprinted toward first base before underhanding the ball to Pat Gallagher. Berg, who was making his 50th appearance of the season, earned his NCAA-record 24th save for 1 2-3 innings of work. The loss spoiled a splendid performance by Girodo, who pitched the last 7 2-3 innings. He allowed three hits, walked two and struck out nine. Both runs against him were unearned. UCLA’s Plutko wasn’t overly sharp, unable to rely on his breaking ball and changeup to get outs.

Missouri Valley Conference hoops transitions after Creighton departs DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Wichita State finished last season with a stirring run to the Final Four that was a point of pride for Missouri Valley Conference. Yet like many leagues around the country, the Valley is dealing with realignment-induced change that could alter its future. League cor nerstone Creighton, arguably the MVC’s top program in recent years, is off to the reconfigured Big East in 2013-14. The Valley quickly added Loyola (Ill.) University of

the Horizon League to take Creighton’s place. But while the Chicago-based Ramblers have a chance to someday flourish in the more prominent Valley, losing the Bluejays stings. “Obviously, not having Creighton is something that, collectively, we’re going to have to do a great job of covering up,” Northern Iowa coach Ben Jacobson said Monday. “I think we’re in very good position to cover up for Creighton.” The Bluejays, behind two-time All-American Doug McDermott, are expected to contend imme-

diately in the new Big East after winning the MVC last winter. It could take much longer for the Ramblers to find their footing in the Valley. The Ramblers, who haven’t reached the NCAA tournament since 1985, finished just 5-11 in the Horizon League a year ago. Loyola beat Mississippi State and DePaul, but it was just the first time in 21 years the Ramblers defeated more than one BCSlevel school. There are indications that Loyola is getting better, though. Coach Porter Moser — who

coached at Illinois State from 2003-07 and played at Creighton from 1986-90 — led the Ramblers to an eight-win improvement in 2012-13. That was the biggest jump by a second-year coach in school history. Loyola returns five players with starting experience, including star forward Christian Thomas, from a roster that was the sixth-youngest in the nation last season. But even Moser said Monday that it’s tough to predict how Loyola will fare in its first season in the MVC. “We are preparing guys, to let

them know how good (the Valley) is. The coaching, the atmosphere, the level of players,” Moser said. “There’s really good teams. There are some teams in some other leagues that can be really talented, but I think the Valley is talented and has great teams.” Loyola’s biggest selling point to the Valley was its presence in a major media market. Most of the league teams already recruit heavily in Chicago, and Moser said he’s already begun to notice Loyola resonating more with recruits in the classes of 2014 and 2015.

Blackhawks rally to win Stanley Cup BOSTON (AP) — Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored 17 seconds apart in the final 1:16 of the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup for the second time in four seasons with a stunning comeback, 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Monday night. Patrick Kane of the Blackhawks won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. Jonathan Toews scored his third goal of the playoffs to tie it for the Blackhawks at 4:24 of the second of Game 6 — exactly two minutes after teammate Andrew Shaw was penalized for roughing. Boston, needing a win to extend the series to a deciding Game 7, came out aggressively and led 1-0 after one period on Chris Kelly’s second goal of the playoffs. The Bruins out-

shot the Blackhawks 12-6 in the first period but the margin dropped to 18-15 through 40 minutes. Each team got one of its best players back when Toews and Boston alternate captain Patrice Bergeron returned to the lineup after leaving the Blackhawks’ 3-1 win with injuries on Saturday. Toews scored when he got past Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara along the boards in the neutral zone. Chicago’s captain skated up the right side and fired a hard shot from the right faceoff dot that beat goalie Tuukka Rask between his pads. It was Toews’ second goal in three games. Of Chicago’s last 10 goals, Chara was on the ice for nine. Boston right wing Jaromir Jagr was shaken up in the first period. He

returned for the second but left the bench, and Tyler Seguin replaced him on the second line with left wing Brad Marchand and center Bergeron. The play that led to Kelly’s goal began after a faceoff that rookie defenseman Torey Krug rushed in to tip toward a teammate. The puck went to Daniel Paille, standing about 40 feet on the left. He passed to Seguin, who caught the puck with his right glove in the slot and dropped it. Seguin then passed to Kelly, who scored his second goal of the playoffs 7:19 into the game. It came just seven seconds after a whistle stopped a scrum in front of the net that followed an extended period of pressure by the Bruins. Just two minutes after the goal, Chicago had one of its best chances of the

period when Michal Frolik skated in with the puck behind the defense and fired a 15-foot drive from the left, but Rask made the save. Boston had another solid chance at 12:24 when Milan Lucic took a 15-foot shot from the slot that Corey Crawford stopped. After having no power plays in Game 5, the Bruins had four failed advantages in the first two periods. With 4:01 left in the first, Shaw was struck in the face by a puck when it deflected off the shaft of his stick after Boston’s Shawn Thornton shot it. He lay on the ice before getting up and skating off slowly. Toews was on Chicago’s first shift of the game. Bergeron had left Game 5 with an undisclosed injury after playing just 49 seconds in the second period.

Hitting: Royals betting big on Brett’s help

and never got as low after a loss. He didn’t want to be simply playing for a check, so he chose to retire. “It’s completely different now,� he said. “Now I’m (angry) when we lose and I’m very excited when we win. I mean, I’m more nervous in the games now because the games mean a lot more than when I was watching them on TV.� There’s been more wins than losses since Brett took over — the team was 21-29 at the time and is 14-9 since, though most of that can be attributed to some stingy pitching. But Brett believes the Royals are on their way toward sustained success,

something that hasn’t happened for the franchise in decades — not since he was still manning the hot corner, and his scrappy team expected to be a contender every year. “Every day we stepped on the field,� Brett said, “we expected to win, and I think this organization the past five years of losing 90 games, they were hoping to win rather than expecting to win. I think when we start winning, we’ll expect to win again.� When might that happen? “How about tonight?� he said. “They win tonight, they’ll expect to win tomorrow.�

simply reverted to their expected mean. Alex Gordon was hitting .340 when Brett came aboard but is just .152 since, putting his season average of .288 closer to what he’d be expected to bat. Lorenzo Cain’s average has slid from .282 to .262, more in line with what he hit last season. But in players that Brett has worked most closely with, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas among them, there’s been profound improvement. Hosmer’s average has climbed from .262 to .275, and he is starting to pull the ball more. Moustakas has nudged his average over .200 after hitting .187 prior to Brett’s arrival, often crediting his new batting coach with the improvement.

Exactly what has Moustakas been told? “Our little secret,� he said. “I’m learning,� Brett explained. “I’ve never done this before. Done it with my kids until they got to high school — I was the assistant coach on all their teams. But teaching an 8-year-old to throw a baseball and hit a baseball? Pretty easy.� This is certainly not easy, and in many ways a predicament. If Brett was to fail, how could the Royals fire the face of their franchise? And to whom would they turn next? Perhaps that’s why Brett seems to be living and dying with every at-bat. When he hung up the cleats after the 1993 season, Brett said he did it because winning and losing didn’t mean as much anymore. He never got as high after wins
