A series of investigations involving members of three law enforcement agencies has led to the arrest of a Garden City man on more than 40 sex crime allegations. Brian Ray Banister, 43, 633 N. Main St., was arrested Oct. 11 at the Law Enforcement Center on 30 counts of sexual exploitation of a child. After taking Banister into custody, investigators uncovered more information that led them to add one count of rape and 11 counts of indecent liberties with a child to the list of allegations. “(Sexual exploitation), in this particular case, was the viewing Photos by Becky Malewitz/Telegram

Community college unveils new logo By RACHAEL GRAY

for the logo to be announced and shown during halftime at tonight’s GCCC football game against Dodge City in Memorial Stadium. Since the game also serves as alumni night, organizers also planned a post-game party for alumni and friends at Samy’s Spirits and Steakhouse, featuring additional logo giveaways. Steve Quakenbush, GCCC executive director of public relations, said the logo better defines and represents what the college means and offers to the public. He said it is “the primary visual element in an overall branding effort for the college, so that we can better communicate the quality and success that people should expect from GCCC,” he said. Quakenbush said the college is following suit with other educational institutions that have changed logos recently. “We believe that’s important in today’s competitive collegiate environment, and it’s something that we’ve seen other learning institutions address, as well.

Students, community members, faculty and staff Friday morning gathered on the quad at Garden City Community College to celebrate the beginning of a new era. After more than two decades, the college has a new logo. The simple, bold yellow and brown “G” has “Garden City Community College” underneath written in modern type face. It’s a switch from the old logo, the four-letter cube logo, which has now been retired. Students showed their pride for the new logo on Friday, wearing T-shirts, temporary tattoos and holding balloons with the logo. Wendy Thiel, 19, a sophomore in elementary education, and Whitney Parks, 19, a sophomore in early childhood education, approved of the new logo. “I think it’s cool. It’s a nice change with the new president,” Thiel said. Parks said it was more modern and more of the type of logo found at a university.

Garden City Community College President Herbert Swender addresses the crowd after unveiling the new GCCC logo on the banner behind him. “I think it’s cool for a new change and new start for the school,” she said. Friday morning’s celebration opened with words from GCCC President Herbert Swender. “This is a true moment in history, because right here, right now, you are among the first people anywhere to see the new logo for Garden City Community College,” he said.

Employees and visitors were offered a free lunch after the ceremony. Music played, and members of the GC3 Media staff began offering opportunities for groups, couples and individuals to get their pictures taken next to a large copy of the collegiate trademark. The official unveiling was the first of two introductory events. Plans also called

GOP pounces after news of CIA cable on Libya raid WASHINGTON (AP) — Sensing a moment of political vulnerability on national security, Republicans pounced Friday on disclosures that President Barack Obama’s administration could have known early on that militants, not angry protesters, launched the attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya. Within 24 hours of the deadly attack, the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington that there were eyewitness reports that the attack was carried out by militants, officials told The Associated Press. But for days, the Obama administration blamed it on an out-ofcontrol demonstration over an American-made video ridiculing Islam’s Prophet Muhammad. Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee, led Friday’s charge. See Libya, Page A5

Tiny-k program helps kids develop from the start Editor’s note: This is the 14th in a series of stories featuring the 21 agencies that will receive funding from the Finney County United Way in 2013.

By KAMIL ZAWADZKI

kzawadzki@gctelegram.com

The Russell Child Development Center’s tiny-k program is crucial to helping families ensure their children develop at a healthy rate and are primed to lead successful lives. For tiny-k Early Intervention Coordinator Jill Reagle, that’s a main goal and part of the essence of RCDC she hopes people are aware of and take advantage of when they need to. “We’re able to help parents help their child,” she said. “And to be able to encourage parents and empower parents to be advocates for their child.” This year, RCDC has received $35,000 from Finney County United Way, the

same amount as was allocated last year but an increase from $30,000 for 2011. The United Way money mainly will be used to pay for the salaries of RCDC’s early interventionists. These interventionists fan out across 12 counties in southwest Kansas to help families with children ranging in age from birth to 36 months old, providing services that Reagle notes are not just required by some of the federal grants the organization gets but are crucial for any community. These services include physical, occupational and speech-language therapy, early childhood education, feed-

ing and nutrition, hearing and vision, social work and assistive technology. “There’s not a one-size-fits-all. Every child is different,” Reagle said. “And our staff really does a fabulous job of identifying the needs, identifying the priorities of the family and working with that.” She admits the organization is underfunded, but is satisfied with the quality of service provided to its clients, something she and her staff want to continue. With less funding, she said, they likely would have to reduce staff or staff hours, which would mean there would be less time each child would get with their interventionist. As a result, the quality of the program and its positive effect on children and their families would be reduced, as well. “They wouldn’t get the assistance See United Way, Page A5

TransCanada temporarily shuts Keystone pipeline KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — TransCanada Corp. has temporarily shut down its existing 2,100-mile Keystone pipeline after tests showed possible safety issues, a federal agency said Thursday. Jeannie Layson, spokeswoman for the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, which oversees pipelines in the U.S., said no leaks were detected on the line, which moves on average about 500,000 barrels of crude a day from Alberta, Canada, down through several states to facilities Illinois and Oklahoma. “TransCanada reported to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration that they have shut down their existing Keystone system pipeline to make repairs in areas where required integrity tests identified possible safety issues,� Layson said in an email. She said the possible problems were located on the stretch of pipeline that extends between Missouri and Illinois. A federal inspector was deployed to review test results, observe repairs and monitor any additional necessary safety issues, Layson said. PHMSA did not have additional details on what the possible safety issues were. Grady Semmens, spokesman for Calgarybased TransCanada, said the pipeline was shut down

Wednesday evening as a precaution and was expected to restart Saturday. “We found a small anomaly on the outside of the pipe after analyzing the data from an in-line inspection tool,� Semmens said in an email. “As a precaution, we’ve shut down the line so we can go in and take a closer look.� Once the pipeline is restarted the company expects “normal operations and flows� for the rest of October, but TransCanada may have to “make up some volumes in November,� Semmens said. Heavy storms that have hit the area recently “are not helping� the operation, he said. “But we have crews on site and will be doing excavation work to expose the pipeline so we can investigate the feature that was identified by the in-line inspection,� Semmens said. The Keystone pipeline has been moving crude to facilities in Wood River and Patoka, Ill., since 2010 and to sites in Cushing, Okla., since February 2011, according to the company’s website. One oil analyst said the Keystone suspension should not have any impact on U.S. gasoline prices. But “it may put pipeline safety and the environmental hazards that come with transporting petroleum back on the map for a while, Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at

the Oil Price Information Service, said in an email. T he shutdown comes amid delays over TransCanada’s plans to build another $7 billion section of pipeline called the Keystone XL that would transport heavy tar-sands crude oil from Canada to Texas’ Gulf Coast refineries. Pipeline opponents argue the project is unsafe because it would be carrying heavy, acidic crude oil that could more easily corrode a metal pipe, which would lead to a spill. They also say refining the oil would further contaminate the air in a region that has long struggled with pollution. TransCanada says its pipeline would be the safest ever built, and that the crude is no dirtier than oil currently arriving from Venezuela or parts of California. President Barack Obama rejected TransCanada’s original application for a federal permit to build the pipeline in January by after congressional Republicans imposed a deadline for approval that didn’t allow enough time to address questions about the route through Nebraska. Since then, TransCanada has split the project into two pieces. The company has started construction on the southern section of the pipeline between Oklahoma and the Gulf Coast.

Draft order would give companies cyberthreat info WASHINGTON (AP) — A new White House executive order would direct U.S. spy agencies to share the latest intelligence about cyberthreats with companies operating electric grids, water plants, railroads and other vital industries to help protect them from electronic attacks, according to a copy obtained by The Associated Press. The seven-page draft order, which is being finalized, takes shape as the Obama administration expresses growing concern that Iran could be the first country to use cyberterrorism against the United States. The military is ready to retaliate if the U.S. is hit by cyberweapons, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said. But the U.S. also is poorly prepared to prevent such an attack, which could damage or knock out critical services that are part of everyday life. The White House declined to say when the president will sign the order. The draft order would put the Department of Homeland Security in charge of organizing an information-sharing network that rapidly distributes sanitized summaries of top-secret intelligence reports about known cyberthreats that identify a specific target. With these warnings, known as tear lines, the owners and operators of essential U.S. businesses would be better able to block potential attackers from gaining access to their computer systems. An organized, broadbased approach for sharing cyberthreat information gathered by the government is widely viewed as essential for any plan to protect U.S. computer networks from foreign nations, terrorist groups and hackers. Existing efforts to exchange information are narrowly focused on specific industries, such as the finance sector, and have had varying degrees of success. Yet the order has generated stiff opposition from Republicans on Capitol Hill who view it as a unilateral move that bypasses the leg-

islative authority held by Congress. Administration officials said the order became necessary after Congress failed this summer to pass cybersecurity legislation, leaving critical infrastructure companies vulnerable to a serious and growing threat. Conflicting bills passed separately by the House and Senate included information-sharing provisions. But efforts to get a final measure through both chambers collapsed over the GOP’s concerns that the Senate bill would expand the federal government’s regulatory power and increase costs for businesses. The White House has acknowledged that an order from the president, while legally binding, is not enough. Legislation is needed to make other changes to improve the country’s digital defenses. An executive order, for example, cannot offer a company protection from liabilities that might result from a cyberattack on its systems. The addition of the information-sharing provisions is the most significant change to an earlier draft of the order completed in late August. The new draft, which is not dated, retains a section that requires Homeland Security to identify the vital systems that, if hit by cyberattack, could “reasonably result in a debilitating impact� on national and economic security. Other sections establish a program to encourage companies to adopt voluntary security standards and direct federal agencies to determine whether existing cyber security regulations

are adequate. The draft order directs the department to work with the Pentagon, the National Security Agency, the director of national intelligence and the Justice Department to quickly establish the information-sharing mechanism. Selected employees at critical infrastructure companies would receive security clearances allowing them to receive the information, according to the document. Federal agencies would be required to assess whether the order raises any privacy or civil liberties risks. To foster a two-way exchange of information, the government would ask businesses to tell the government about cyberthreats or cyberattacks. There would be no requirement to do so. The NSA has been sharing cyberthreat information on a limited basis with companies that conduct business with the Defense Department. These companies work with sensitive data about weapon systems and technologies and are frequently the targets of cyberspying. But the loss of valuable information has been eclipsed by fears that an enemy with the proper know-how could cause havoc by sending the computers controlling critical infrastructure systems incorrect commands or infecting them with malicious software. Potential nightmare scenarios include high-speed trains being put on collision courses, blackouts that last days or perhaps even weeks or chemical plants that inadvertently release deadly gases.

NIP set to begin new community garden By ANGIE HAFLICH

ahaflich@gctelegram.com

The Neighborhood Improvement Project, in which high school students aid in cleaning up and beautifying areas in Garden City, is set to begin its next project on Oct. 27, and it will be one of the larger undertakings yet, according to Garden City Police Detective Clint Brock, who oversees the program. “It was so hot this summer that we didn’t get to do a lot of things that we wanted to do, so we wanted to have this one pretty big project put together,” Brock said. The latest project is a community garden, located behind the East Garden Village mobile home park, 4101 E. U.S. Highway 50. “We think (the area) is roughly the size of two football fields. What we’re going to be doing is, Burlington Northern Railroad — they’re replacing a lot of their railroad ties — so they’re giving us their old railroad ties and we’re going to use the railroad ties to make the garden boxes,” Brock said. He said that these boxes will be approximately 6 by 12 feet. “The way we have it figured right now is we should be able do right around 200 or so of the boxes, and then the Salvation Army, they wanted to do a project where they could have their volunteers come out and grow food and then give it to underprivileged people in Garden City, so they’re going to have a plot and that will give them something for their kids to work and learn about,” Brock said. The first row of the garden will be Americans with Disabilities compliant, allowing people with limited access or mobility to utilize the garden. Brock said that the land was made available by Robert Martin, owner of East Garden Village, and that the boxes will allow residents of the mobile home park to tend to their own small gardens, in which they can plant anything they wish. “Rob Martin, he figures he’s got close to 3,000 residents, so what he’s going to do is, each one of these will be numbered and they’ll

When the finished, garden will be roughly the size of two football fields and residents of East Garden Village will be given the option of gardening in one of the estimated 6 by 12 foot squares. keep track of them and then anyone who comes in to rent a lot space, they will be asked if they would like to have a garden spot or not and if they do, they’ll be assigned that one for as long as they either live in the residence or want to continue to garden. So their office will keep track of that,” Brock said. The dirt that will be used in each of the garden boxes is being donated by Jake Foltz, owner of Excavated Unlimited. As the kids build the boxes, dirt will be dumped into each one and then another group of kids will flatten it out. Brock said that the city will install an irrigation system either some time this fall or in the early spring. “And they’re not going to charge the residents for this. The city will take care of (the water),” he said. He said that other area businesses have also contributed sup-

plies to the project. Students who live in the area came up with the idea, Brock said. As part of the community garden, the plan is to also plant more trees surrounding it. “There are some trees here and I’m assuming that it’s going to take more than one weekend to do this,” Brock said. Better known as NIP, the community-wide cleanup project began in late 2009 with a trash pick-up project. Since then, the NIP has participated in several cleanups. For the community garden project, Brock said he is expecting about 300 kids to participate. “We’ve got the wrestling team; I’ve asked the high school football team to see if they’re going to come, the JROTC, the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination class) kids, Green Club — those are usual staples,” Brock said. “Plus, then Horace Good Middle School has issued a

challenge to Kenneth Henderson to see how many (students) they can get out there, so their junior leadership class will be out there, and we should have a lot of kids working on this,” Brock said. He said that for this project, they are competing in the National Make a Difference Day, in which prizes in increments of $10,000 are awarded to organizations deemed to be making the most difference in their communities.

Appeals Court revives Kansas school funding case KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A northeast Kansas lawsuit challenging the state’s cap on how much money residents in a school district can raise through taxes has gotten new life after a federal appeals court reversed a lower court’s dismissal of the case. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled Thursday that the plaintiffs, who are all parents in the Shawnee Mission School District, have legal standing to pursue the lawsuit. The lawsuit was dismissed last year by District Judge John W. Lungstrum, who said the local option budget cap — which limits the amount of money school districts can raise beyond what

the state provides — is not severable from the rest of the funding formula. The parents appealed, saying the cap violated their constitutional rights of equal protection and due process because they aren’t allowed to decide for themselves how much money to spend on education. “We’re anxious for Judge Lungstrum to have an opportunity to rule on the constitutionality of the cap,” said Tristan Duncan, an attorney who represents the Shawnee Mission parents. The Kansas Legislature rewrote its funding formula in 1992 and heavily revised it in 2005 and 2006, mostly to increase

funding in response to a lawsuit filed by dozens of school districts claiming the state wasn’t meeting its constitutional obligation to adequately fund public schools. As part of the formula, the local option tax was capped so wealthy districts wouldn’t have an unfair advantage over poorer ones. But the Shawnee Mission district — one of the wealthiest in Kansas — has reached the maximum amount allowed. Lawmakers wrote into the law that the cap on local property taxes could not be broken away from the rest of the formula. While the 10th Circuit acknowledged that severing the cap could bring the whole funding system

down, the judges said the cap’s constitutionality was a matter for the lower court to decide. In their lawsuit, the parents argued that not only are they limited in how much they can raise, their schools are receiving less state aid than most other districts. Neighboring districts such as Kansas City, Kan., are getting as much as $1,000 more per student in state assistance, Duncan said. “Our citizenry is willing to tax ourselves more to achieve equality with KCK, but they say you can’t do that, we want you to stay poorer than us,” Duncan said. “We the people should be able to decide how much education we can afford, not the state.”

A

s new casinos pop up in Kansas, access to gambling has become more convenient. Yet efforts to help problem gamblers have been stymied. According to some state lawmakers, the state has improperly spent casino and lottery revenues earmarked for programs to help Kansans with gambling and other addictions.

Instead, most of the dollars have gone to general government services. Those who’d defend such a move claim the effort to assist people with gambling problems in Kansas has been slow to materialize because the state hasn’t identified communities with gambling problems, or identified specifics on how many people have problems, and what those problems may be. Perhaps they should start with a hard look at cities with casinos. The first state-owned casino opened in December 2009 in Dodge City. There’s no question the venture — and others to follow in Kansas — were safe bets to put significant funding in state coffers, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars a year. At the same time, there also was no denying gambling would come at a painful cost to many. State lawmakers knew that while Kansas was poised to collect big bucks in gaming tax revenue, the business also would exact a costly social toll in personal financial crises that can lead to crime, bankruptcies and broken families. The deal was to use just a small portion of gambling income for outreach, counseling and help lines for such addiction-related problems. By now, the programs to aid Kansans addicted to gambling should at least be close to meeting existing needs. Yet only about 100 people used problem gambling services available in the first year. Statistics show thousands more in trouble. It’s inexcusable to lean on gamblers for significant state funding, then snatch away any meager funding set aside to address problems. More casinos means more gamblers. And, as a result, more people getting in trouble. The state should follow through on its part of the deal, and spend gambling income as required by law.

Being more lucky than brilliant By ARNOLD OLIVER

to Soviet territory in Turkey, approved sending military aid, troops and nuclear weapons to Cuba.

I

f you were born before 1950, you probably remember what happened in October 1962. If you were born after that fateful month, you’re lucky. Exactly half a century ago, the United States and the Soviet Union reached the brink of a deadly nuclear showdown during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Appropriately, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney’s foreign policy debate will take place Oct. 22 — exactly 50 years after President John F. Kennedy’s most dramatic television address to the nation. That frank talk ushered in a week of heightened anxiety, to put it mildly, around the world. With the question of Iran’s nuclear ambitions now on our minds, I hope Obama and Romney will take this opportunity to weigh in on the lessons we’ve learned since 1962. In the aftermath of Cuba’s 1959 revolution, the Kennedy administration was trying hard to topple Fidel Castro’s government. Washington imposed trade sanctions, experimented with sabotage, staged assassinations, and finally backed an ill-fated and poorly equipped guerrilla invasion in Cuba’s Bay of Pigs. Instead of bringing Havana back into the U.S. sphere of influence, Cuba turned to the USSR for support. Premier Nikita Khrushchev, acutely aware of the U.S. nuclear missiles based close

Khrushchev sought to protect his new Caribbean ally and achieve nuclear deterrence on the cheap. Moscow had few long-range nuclear missiles at that time. The crisis rapidly escalated after a U.S. spy plane discovered missile sites under construction on Oct. 14, 1962. When Kennedy addressed the nation eight days later, he demanded that Moscow remove the missiles. Then he imposed a naval blockade. We know now that the crisis was a classic example of misperception and misunderstanding: the fog of war. The Kennedy administration didn’t realize that Moscow had already stationed 162 nuclear warheads in Cuba as well as nuclear-armed torpedoes on its submarines. Russian leaders incorrectly thought that Washington would accept missiles in Cuba since Uncle Sam had missiles in Turkey, on the USSR’s doorstep. Both sides thought they understood the situation and the other side’s motives. They were wrong. In retrospect, it’s clear that JFK’s top military advisers did

him a disservice. What’s perhaps most alarming about the crisis is that both U.S. and Soviet leaders behaved as if the addition of nuclear weapons to the mix had little impact on how they handled the crisis. That’s why they allowed a dispute over a transient tactical advantage to endanger the entire planet, including generations yet unborn. If that sounds insane, it should. It’s what Albert Einstein warned about in 1946, when he declared, “The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking, and we thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.” Do you think either Romney or Obama would have done better than JFK during the crisis? Do you trust either one of them to be stewards of weapons quite capable of extinguishing life on the planet? I sure don’t. So on this 50th anniversary of being more lucky than brilliant, let’s make a commitment to rid the Earth of nuclear weapons.

Your Views Many questions left to answer

R

egarding the presidential campaign: During the big Oct. 3, 2012, presidential debate, Romney said, “We are all God’s children.” I am hearing many people of faith declaring Obama to not be worthy of praise because, “he is a Muslim.“ (This is hearsay to me). I find these remarks to be in conflict and very confusing. However, I do see President Obama as what he presents himself to be as our USA president. Many people appear to let derogatory messages become their belief because their perspectives are clouded by refusing to see and hear the entire plan that is intended to be implemented. Very often segments are isolated and used out of context. This adds to confusion. These complex plans are implemented with an expected positive outcome and impact to our total existence that is dependent on government decisions, policy and procedure. My understanding is that more than one person decides these plans of action. For those Americans with an open mind and honest values it must be obvious that any one man, of any race, religion or political party, would have been challenged to move this country, the USA, out of the depressed and economically challenged state of being that it was in when Obama became president. In all fairness, it appears to me that what resulted from many years would require many years to restabilize. Can anyone, honestly, say one man in one term as president of our USA, has been totally responsible for our country’s disarray and irresponsible conduct of many of its worthy citizens. I say, “not“ ... we citizens have a responsibility to do our best to be patriotic citizens. We have an obligation to act upon what we believe. Actions do speak louder than words. I feel that many of us need to wake up, pay attention and accept our per-

sonal responsibility to be selfaccountable. We must learn to be patriotic by accepting positive leadership roles ... our actions need to replace words. I do have many concerns and many considerations that need to be clarified. There appear to be many unanswered and avoided issues in this 2012 presidential campaign. It is a challenge ... may the best leader win. I am retired from more than 50 years of gainful employment and I am a 45-year member of the American Legion Auxiliary.

Domestic violence affects everyone

I

t could be your mother, aunt, grandmother or little sister. It could even be your neighbor or co-worker. It is even possible it could be a man in your family. You think it doesn’t affect you, but it does. It affects everyone whether they realize it or not. Domestic violence isn’t a personal issue — it’s a community issue. It’s a community issue because communities also pay the price for violence. It is estimated that one in four women, and one in eight men, will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Without intervention and education, victims are more likely to form future relationships with other batterers. Of children exposed to domestic violence, 50 percent are more likely to use violence against their partners later in life. It becomes a cycle, being repeated generation after generation. And it doesn’t just happen in the home, it happens in the workplace as well. No one can really be sure when they go to work or out to run errands that they won’t be a fatality of someone’s irate partner. You think it won’t happen, but so did others when they went

to a salon for a haircut, or the post office to mail a letter, or the courthouse to take care of a legal matter. But what should really speak to individuals is the economic impact. The cost of keeping communities safe through law enforcement, prosecutors, court personnel and parole officers; the cost of counseling victims and rehabilitating perpetrators; the cost of providing for women and children who can’t provide for themselves as a result of domestic violence. No, it doesn’t affect you at all. It only affects all of us. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. To help, educate, advocate and donate.

nalogies of our national pastime and “mulligans” in golf aside, I’m concerned about the county attorney’s position. The use of a “writein” campaign is not new. In fact, every primary and general election I’ve voted in since 1960 have had a blank space for a “write-in” candidate. Brian Sherwood brings nearly 22 years experience as a prosecutor for Finney County. This experience includes more than 45 jury trials with 80 percent conviction success. Some of the cases have been first-degree murder, rape, gang violence, etc. His business administration experience gives him insight into such areas as budgetary matters. In these tight budget times he has said he would continue to prosecute cases when his department would have fewer lawyers. Last but not least, he has a rapport with law enforcement. Brian Sherwood, write-in, right on. DON JERNBERG, Garden City

verybody talks about the middle class being hurt in the Obama economy, but it’s really the working poor who are getting crushed. The president boasts that he and four more years of his trickle-down government policies are going to save the middle class’ bacon, eggs and jobs. And at the Tuesday night cockfight on Long Island, our presumptive ex-commander in chief accused Mitt Romney of being hypocrite and a liar who wants to help the rich at the expense of the middle class. The middle class has become an important political football this fall, but no one knows what the middle class actually is. There’s no official definition based on household income. It ranges between $42,000 and $60,000 a year and it’s different by state. Earn $45k in Utah or Mississippi and you’re solidly middle class. Earn that much in Manhattan or the Great Train Wreck State of California, where Obama Gas can cost $5 a gallon, and you’re really hurting. It’s certainly true the middle class has been hurt by the Great Recession. But the biggest losers are the working poor. When the economy goes south, they are the first to lose their jobs or see their paychecks shrink. The president doesn’t talk about helping them. But the working poor are people like my daughter, a schoolteacher in Southern California. And Victor, my barber. And Jenny, who does my nails. And the waiter at the local restaurant. When the middle class feels the pinch, what’s the first thing they do to make ends meet? They drop their hair colorists and gardeners, who often end up becoming part of the 23 million Americans looking for jobs. President Obama wants to encourage high-skilled immigrants to stay in America. That’s fine. But it’s the lowskilled immigrants and the working poor who I’m worried about. They’re the ones who do America’s hardest, dirtiest jobs, and it’s their kids who are hoping to join the middle class of tomorrow. The American people have two clear choices three Tuesdays from now. They can choose between a successful businessman and a failed president. Obama wants to take wealth from the rich and give it to the poor so everyone in America can live on an equal scale. But Americans have never been economically equal and don’t want to be. The president wants to create something that’s never existed in the history of the world; the economies that tried are on “the ash heap of history.” Obama’s been a total disaster. The economy is tanking, 23 million are out of work, 47 million are getting food stamps, and he has no clue what to do for the next four years. And since he can’t defend his own record, all Obama’s been doing is attacking Mitt Romney for his wealth and success. Mitt has nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, he needs to stop being so shy about his record of success. He needs to do a little bragging to the American people — especially to the poor and working classes. He needs to say, “When I ran Bain Capital I was asked to come in, save a lot of jobs, and make other people rich. I did a great job at that. “I was brought in to save the Winter Olympics when it was being destroyed by corruption and financial problems. I succeeded at that. “Now my job is to bring the American economy back to health and create jobs. I’ll be successful at that, too. And I’ll make it possible for the working poor, the middle class — all of us — to live better.” Come on, all you undecideds, step up. It’s time to vote for Mitt and put America’s workers back to work.

Libya: GOP pounces after news of CIA cable on raid Continued from Page A1

“Look around the world, turn on your TV,� Ryan said in an interview with WTAQ radio in the election battleground state of Wisconsin. “And what we see in front of us is the absolute unraveling of the Obama administration’s foreign policy.� As a security matter, how the Obama administration immediately described the attack has little effect on broader counterterrorism strategies or on the hunt for those responsible for the incident, in which the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed. And Republicans have offered no explanation for why the president would want to conceal the nature of the attack. But the issue has given Republican presidential

nominee Mitt Romney an opportunity to question Obama on foreign policy and national security, two areas that have received little attention in an election dominated by the U.S. economy. Obama’s signature national security accomplishment is the military’s killing of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. Ryan was teeing up the issue for Monday’s presidential debate on foreign policy. “I’m excited we’re going to have a chance to talk about that on Monday,� Ryan said. Obama, speaking Thursday on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,� insisted that information was shared with the American people as it came in. The attack is under investigation, Obama said, and “the picture eventually gets filled

in.� “What happens, during the course of a presidency, is that the government is a big operation and any given time something screws up,� Obama said. ‘’And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it.� The report from the station chief was written late Sept. 12, and reached intelligence agencies in Washington the next day, intelligence officials said. It is not clear how widely the information from the CIA station chief was circulated. U.S. intelligence officials have said the information was just one of many widely conflicting accounts, which became clearer by the following week. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who chairs the House Intelligence

Committee, said on CNN that the administration didn’t understand the gravity of the situation in Benghazi and as a result bad decisions were made to promote the video as the root of the violence. “By continuing to promote the video, by escalating the value and credibility of that video to a presidential level, by buying ads in Pakistan that actually fueled protests all across Pakistan — and so, this is what’s so disturbing to me: Were those decisions based on intelligence? I think it’s hard to say yes. So why did they do it? That’s the question we need to get answered. “ Democrats have spent the past week explaining the administration’s handling of the attack. On Monday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said a period of uncer-

tainty typically follows attacks. “In the wake of an attack like this, in the fog of war, there’s always going to be confusion,� Clinton said. “And I think it is absolutely fair to say that everyone had the same intelligence. Everyone who spoke tried to give the information that they had.� On Tuesday, Obama and Romney argued over when the president first called it a terrorist attack. In his Rose Garden address the morning after the killings, Obama said, “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.� But Republicans said he was speaking generally and didn’t specifically call the Benghazi event a terror attack until weeks later.

Until then, key members of the administration were blaming an anti-Muslim movie circulating on the Internet as a precipitating event. This Wednesday, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., put the blame on the director of national intelligence, James Clapper. “I think what happened was the director of intelligence, who is a very good individual, put out some speaking points on the initial intelligence assessment,� Feinstein said in an interview with news channel CBS 5 in California. “I think that was possibly a mistake.� Congress is asking the administration for documents about the attack, in hopes of building a timeline of what the government knew and when.

that they need,� Reagle said. “They wouldn’t get the start that they deserve.� Dr. Michael Shull, a pediatrician at St. Catherine Hospital’s Siena Medical Clinic, who refers families to RCDC, spoke highly of the tiny-k program. “I think people don’t realize what a real jewel we have in the community with this center here,� he said. “Russell gets families the treatment their children need.� He added that some of his referrals are from families who are simply concerned and want to make sure that their children are

on track with other kids their age. “Sometimes it’s a child that is developing normally, and they can take their child to Russell for free screenings during the school year if the family’s worried,� he said. “If they are in fact behind in one area, Russell will put them in touch with the right people to help their child.� And if the child is developing at a normal rate, Shull said, a family can be put at ease and made aware of some simple exercises to ensure continued development of walking, speaking and other skills. “It really gives the children a chance to grow up to have a healthy lifestyle,�

Shull said. Reagle said that interventions and therapies before children enter school prepare them for success in classroom situations, academically and socially. “Children learn best in their natural environment,� she said, adding that is why tiny-k interventionists head to the children’s homes or playgrounds, where they feel most at ease, until “school eventually becomes the natural environment.� Reagle cites research showing that not only does learning begin at birth but as much as 85 percent of brain growth happens in the first three years of life.

And it also helps the families. “Families report that early intervention services have helped them to know their rights, effectively communicate their children’s needs and help their children develop and learn,� she wrote in a follow-up email. “Therefore, the tinyk Early Intervention program and staff values and considers the role of the family as key to the success of early intervention.� And parents can offer input, as well, through an inter-agency coordinating council, while some past participants currently sit on the organization’s board, which Reagle said shows the positive impres-

sions the program leaves on families involved. Shull said it’s unique for a rural, vast region like southwest Kansas to have a program like RCDC’s tinyk Early Intervention. “People in this region are very blessed to have services like this available,� he said. The local United Way’s annual campaign goal is $550,000 for 2013, the same as it has been for the last few years. The 21 partner agencies for the 2013 campaign are also the same as this year. They include: Miles of Smiles; Russell Child Development Center; Finney County RSVP; Kansas Children’s Service

League; Catholic Social Service; Southeast Asian Mutual Assistance Program; Smart Start; Playground Program; Family Crisis Services; Spirit of the Plains, CASA; The Salvation Army; Meals on Wheels; Habitat for Humanity; Garden City Family YMCA; Garden City Chapter of the Red Cross; Santa Fe Trail Council of the Boy Scouts of America; Community Day Care Center; United Methodist MexicanAmerican Ministries; United Cerebral Palsy of Kansas; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Finney and Kearny Counties; and Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland.

Investigations: G.C. man arrested on sex crime allegations and sharing of child pornography on the Internet,� said Finney County Sheriff Kevin Bascue. Finney County Sheriff’s investigators were notified by investigators of the Kirksville Regional Computer Crimes Unit in Kirksville, Mo., that an IP address belonging to someone in Garden City was linked to the viewing and sharing of child pornography on Sept. 27, Bascue said. “So they contacted us. What they weren’t able to provide at that time was the exact location.

All that we could tell was that it was in Garden City, Kansas, so sheriff’s office investigators got ahold of an investigator at Ford County Sheriff’s Office who is very familiar with these type of investigations. ... They have some software, programming where they were able to pull that up and look at what the person was looking at and confirm that it was child pornography,� Bascue said, referring to the assistance of Ford County investigator George Brown. After confirming the IP address, authorities

obtained a warrant to seek the exact location from the Internet service provider connected to the computer. After determining the location was Banister’s place of employement, Midwest Hearing Aids, 301 E. Pine St., a second search warrant was executed, allowing investigators to search the computer at the business. “When we went there (the business), we still did not know who our suspect was. We just knew that now we have a location and a computer where it’s being viewed. So then when they executed the

(second) search warrant and went (to the business) and came in contact with Mr. Banister, and after taking the computer and questioning him, he was then arrested on the child pornography charges,� said Bascue, adding that investigators first ruled out the possibility of passersby using the Internet connection wirelessly and also ruled out other employees of the business. It was after the initial arrest that authorities made a connection between Banister and a separate case involving a 14-year-old Garden City

Branding: College unveils new ‘G’ logo Continued from Page A1

Both Kansas State University and the University of Kansas, for example, have established new brandmarks in recent years, and so have some of our competitors among the ranks of Kansas community colleges,� he said. Quakenbush said the present cube-letter logo has been in use for more than 20 years. “... And that’s well past

the average shelf life for a corporate emblem or a collegiate logo to go without at least some updating,� he said. Quakenbush said the branding effort particularly took off when Swender became president. “When Dr. Swender took charge as president in 2011, one of the objectives he identified early on was the development of an updated logo,� he said.

Tiffany Heit, who manages the GCCC printing and graphic design services, created the logo under the direction of Cathy McKinley, GCCC’s executive director of marketing. Final selection was made by the GCCC President’s Cabinet. “When it was time to start looking, we went out and researched ... all of the colleges we thought had a good reputation and following and

then studied the type of logo that they had used,� Heit said. She said they liked the KU and Oklahoma State University logos. Heit said the committee thought simple was better. “... Because it represents so many facets of the college and of the people, so we just felt simple was better. We thought it was a very strong, powerful representation of our college,� she said. 218347

girl, Bascue said. “We became aware of the presence of a 14-yearold female victim through the course of that investigation, in which some red flags came up that investigators thought they needed to pursue further,� Bascue said. After interviewing the girl, authorities added 11 counts of aggravated indecent liberties and one count of rape in connection with crimes Banister allegedly committed between March 2011 and May 2012. At this point, Bascue said, there is no reason to believe there are any other

victims or suspects in the case. “If we get additional information, then we’d follow up. But at this time, we’re not aware that there are any more victims, so we’re not doing any more investigations,� he said. Bascue said that the 30 counts of sexual exploitation of a child mean that Banister allegedly viewed 30 different photos or videos of child pornography. Banister is currently in custody on a $500,000 bond for the sexual exploitation allegations and an additional $500,000 bond for the rape allegation.

U.S. gun industry is thriving during Obama’s term WASHINGTON (AP) — Tennessee lawyer Brian Manookian says he never considered himself a gun enthusiast. He owns just one handgun and was raised in a gun-free home. But the firearms industry has proven so successful in recent years that he decided to give up practicing law and make guns his livelihood. It’s a decision that’s put Manookian on track to earn four times what he made as a corporate health care attorney, a job that earned him six figures right out of law school, he said. And he’s far from alone. An analysis by The Associated Press of data tracking the health of the gun industry shows that President Barack Obama has presided over a heyday for guns. Sales are on the rise, so much that some manufacturers cannot make enough fast enough. Major gun company stock prices are up. The number of federally licensed, retail gun dealers is increasing for the first time in nearly 20 years. The U.S. gun lobby is bursting with cash and political clout. Washington has expressed little interest in passing new gun laws, despite renewed calls to do so after recent deadly shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin. Four years ago the gun lobby predicted Obama would be the “most anti-gun president in American history.” Yet it is hard to find a single aspect of the gun world that isn’t thriving. “The driver is President Obama. He is the best thing that ever happened

support in Congress or among voters even if he did. During this week’s presidential debate, he did suggest renewing a U.S. ban on assault weapons and coming up with an overall strategy to reduce violence. But both Obama

and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney said the real need is for the government to enforce gun laws already on the books. Meanwhile, sales are brisk. Since opening a $5 mil-

lion armory in Nashville last month, Manookian and his business partner have outdone their own expectations, selling inventory three to four times faster than they expected. The facility has high ceilings and granite fixtures in

the bathroom and provides instructional courses and a shooting range in addition to firearms for sale. “It is a very strong investment,” Manookian said. Others agree. For the first time since 1993, the number of federally licensed retail gun dealers in the U.S. increased slightly in 2010 and 2011. The country added 1,167 licensed retail gun dealers, according to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives records. After the assault weapons ban of 1994 — now expired — the number of gun dealerships dropped annually until 2010. As of October 2012, there were 50,812 retail gun dealers — 3,303 more than in 2009. “Business has been very good,” said Frederick Prehn, who a year ago opened a small gun store above his dentistry practice in Wausau, Wis. In the past year, Prehn has relocated twice to larger spaces and gone from one employee to eight. Some gun store owners can’t keep shelves stocked, said Brian Jones, owner of Bullseye Shooter’s supply in Painted Post, N.Y. Jones said he opened his gun store in November 2010. In his first year, he said he sold between 600 and 700 guns. A little more than halfway through his second year, he’s already sold 700. “Wouldn’t you want to be in a business where customers are just begging to hand you money?” said Bill Bernstein, owner of East Side Gun Shop in Nashville.

Most battleground states see unemployment rates fall CLEVELAND (AP) — Unemployment rates fell last month in nearly all of the battleground states that will determine the presidential winner, giving President Barack Obama fresh fodder to argue that voters should stick with him in an election focused squarely on the economy. The declines, however, were modest. It’s unknown whether they will do much to sway undecided voters who are considering whether to back Republican Mitt Romney or give the Democratic president four more years. The statewide data released by the Labor Department on Friday provide one of the last comprehensive looks at the health of the U.S. economy ahead of Election Day, now a little more than two weeks away. Voters will get one more update on the national unemployment rate just days before the election. But the state reports matter greatly to the Obama and Romney campaigns, which believe the public’s impressions of the economy are shaped mostly by local conditions rather than national ones. In Ohio, perhaps the most crucial battleground state for both Obama and Romney, the unemployment rate ticked down last month to 7 percent from 7.2 percent, below the national average of 7.8 percent. “I knew a lot of people who were laid off and now they’re working,” said firefighter Matt Sparling, an Obama supporter from Parma Heights, Ohio. “So something good is happening here.” Obama’s team is banking

on the president getting credit for improvements in Ohio’s economy, particularly for the bailout of the auto industry, which has deep roots in the Midwestern swing state. But Romney has opportunities to run on the economy in Ohio, too. The state actually lost nearly 13,000 jobs in September and the drop in the unemployment rate was probably due in part to people dropping out of the job market. Obama’s campaign released a new ad in Ohio on Friday, touting the president’s rescue of General Motors and Chrysler. Without the auto bailout, one man in the ad says, “Ohio would have collapsed.” Another man says, “Mitt Romney would have just let us go under — just let

them go bankrupt.” The ad’s tagline shows the map of Ohio with the words: “Mitt Romney. Not one of us.” The president didn’t mention the state jobless numbers during a campaign stop Friday in Virginia, one of two battleground states where the rate didn’t drop. It held steady at the relatively low level of 5.9 percent. Spirited on other topics, Obama quipped in a raucous rally at George Mason University that a case of “Romnesia” was preventing his opponent from remembering his own stances on health care, energy and a slate of policies. “He’s forgetting what his own positions are — and he’s betting that you will, too,” Obama said. “We’ve got to

name this condition that he’s going through. I think it’s called Romnesia.” Romney was headlining a rally in Florida Friday evening after spending much of the day in New York meeting

with advisers. The candidates were stepping off the campaign trail this weekend for debate preparations ahead of Monday’s third and final face-off in Boca Raton, Fla. Romney

was staying in South Florida to practice, while Obama and top aides headed to Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland, to prepare for the foreign policyfocused debate.

Medicare questions arise in meningitis outbreak WASHINGTON (AP) — Medicare is coming under scrutiny in the meningitis outbreak that has rekindled doubts about the safety of the nation’s drug supply. The giant health insurance program for seniors long ago flagged compounded drugs produced for the mass market without oversight from the Food and Drug Administration as safety risks. In 2007, Medicare revoked coverage of compounded inhaler drugs for lung disease. But Medicare doesn’t seem to have consistently used its own legal power to deny payment, and critics say that has enabled the compounding business to flourish. Now program officials are scrambling to find out how many Medicare beneficiaries are among the more than 270 people sickened in 16 states in a still-growing outbreak that has claimed 21 lives. The illnesses have been linked to an injectable steroid used to treat back pain, made by the New England Compounding Center, a Massachusetts specialty pharmacy. The medication was contaminated with a fungus. A senior lawmaker and consumer advocates are raising questions about Medicare’s role, including an apparent lack of coordination between Medicare and the FDA, the two most powerful agencies within the federal Health and Human Services Department. In response, a department spokesman says Congress needs to provide the FDA with stronger powers. The meningitis outbreak has called attention to the role of compounding pharmacies in supplying medications routinely used by hospitals and doctors to treat patients. Regulated primarily by states, the pharmacies specialize in customizing doses for individual patients who have allergies to ingredients in an FDA-approved drug, or who might need a smaller dosage than what’s available commercially.

This Oct. 9 photo, provided by the Minnesota Department of Health, shows vials of the injectable steroid product made by New England Compounding Center implicated in a fungal meningitis outbreak that were being shipped to the CDC from Minneapolis. On Thursday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the fungus was in one lot of vials made in August 2012 by the New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass. The specialty pharmacy has been at the center of a national investigation into more than 250 fungal meningitis cases, including at least 20 deaths. But some pharmacies have pushed into full-scale manufacturing. Medicare has long been aware of the risks. “By compounding drugs on a large scale, a company may be operating as a drug manufacturer within the meaning of (federal law), without complying with requirements of that law,� Medicare’s coverage manual, a reference for contractors that handle payments, says in a section dealing with compounded drugs. That situation, adds the manual, fails Medicare’s basic standard, that treatments must be “reasonable and necessary� in order to be covered. “This means, in the case of drugs, the FDA must approve them for marketing,� says the manual. It goes on to say that billing contractors should wait for instructions from Medicare before cutting off payment in specific cases

where the FDA has determined that a company is producing compounded drugs in violation of the law. “Medicare indicates in its own policy documents that it can cut off payments for compounded drugs produced under manufacturing-like conditions,� said Sen. Charles Grassley, RIowa, who over the years has pushed for stronger government oversight of the pharmaceutical industry. “Medicare should explain whether it uses this step, and if not, why not. Every avenue for explaining how this health crisis occurred and preventing others like it needs exploration,� he added. Joyce Lovelace of Albany, Ky., says she doesn’t understand how the outbreak could have happened. Eddie Lovelace, her husband of 55 years, died of a stroke after receiving injections of the steroid implicated in the

outbreak as a treatment for pain from an auto accident. “I’m 100 percent behind not paying ... whether it’s Medicare, Blue Cross, or whatever,� she said. “Somebody dropped the ball and as a result my husband is gone.� Eddie Lovelace, 78, a long-serving judge, was still working at the time of his death and Medicare was not his primary insurance. Medicare officials are looking into whether the program paid for drugs that have sickened patients. “If the FDA determines a company is producing compounded drugs in violation of (federal law), Medicare will not reimburse for drugs produced in that facility,� said HHS spokesman Tait Sye. “The FDA’s regulatory authority over compounding pharmacies is more limited by statute than it is for typical drug manufacturers. We urge Congress to strengthen the FDA’s authority.�

Earlier puberty seen in boys, just like in girls CHICAGO (AP) — When it comes to the birds and the bees, some parents may want to have that talk with their boys a little sooner than they expected. Researchers have found signs of puberty in American boys up to two years earlier than previously reported — age 9 on average for blacks, 10 for whites and Hispanics. Other studies have suggested that girls, too, are entering puberty younger. Why is this happening? Theories range from higher levels of obesity and inactivity to chemicals in food and water, all of which might interfere with normal hormone production. But those are just theories, and they remain unproven. Doctors say earlier puberty is not necessarily cause for concern. And some experts question whether the trend is even real. Dr. William Adelman, an adolescent medicine specialist in the Baltimore area, says the new research is the first to find early, strong physical evidence that boys are maturing earlier. But he added that the study still isn’t proof and said it raises a lot of questions. Earlier research based on 20-year-old national data also suggested a trend toward early puberty in boys, but it was based on less rigorous information. The new study involved testes measurements in more than 4,000 boys. Enlargement of testes is generally the earliest sign of puberty in boys. The study was published online Saturday in Pediatrics to coincide with the American Academy of Pediatrics’ national conference in New Orleans. Dr. Neerav Desai, an adolescent medicine specialist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, said he’s seen a subtle trend toward slightly earlier puberty in boys. He said it’s important for parents and doctors to be aware so they can help children emotionally prepare for the changes that come with puberty.

A bunch of grapes grow on a vine Tuesday at Darrell Strawn’s homestead south of Cimarron. Strawn is working to create a vineyard in southwest Kansas, and hopes to have plants producing grapes for wine by this time next year.

The fruits of his labor Gray County farmer sets aside portion of land to grow grapes.

C

IMARRON — Darrell Strawn must feel a little like Ray Kinsella. No, the Cimarron farmer isn’t leveling a portion of his crop to make way for a baseball field like Kinsella did in the fictional story “Field of Dreams.” But like the Iowa corn farmer in the movie, he has succumbed to an urge to create something somewhat unique on his Gray County farm, and it’s catching the attention of both locals and passersby. He began planting grapevines on his farm five miles south of Cimarron in the spring of 2011, in part because of an unfulfilled dream of his father’s, but also because of Strawn’s own interest in vineyards. “This is a family house we built in 1970, and

my dad always wanted to have an orchard. But it’s like how farming goes, every spring when you should be planting an orchard, it’s like, ‘Well, maybe not. Maybe next year,’” Strawn said. His father, Ira Strawn, died in March 2010 before they ever got around to putting an orchard in. But it was this, along with his late mother Marjorie’s unfulfilled desire to improve their home’s interior, that spurred Strawn into action. “What I’m trying to do is catch up on all the things that they didn’t get quite finished up with. Daddy wanted an orchard, so we’re start-

Packing up a home makes memories come rushing back O

ne of the best parts of moving is it forces you to look through your junk. Inevitably, you look at stuff and wonder why in the heck you kept it, or even what in the heck is this? But there also are times you rediscover things you forgot you had; things that mean a lot to you. My wife had me sort through a box of items I packed up when we moved from Kansas to Nebraska. These were things I had at the newspaper I worked at, either work related or just stuff I kept at my desk that meant something to me. I had a picture of David Letterman sent to the news-

paper when he switched from NBC to CBS. For some reason, I ended up with it, so I kept it. I had several old notebooks filled with notes from interviews. I have no idea why I kept them. There also were things that I always cherished. I had two key chains my children made for me out of beads. I remember I had them hanging up in my cubicle. I also had a hot pad my daughter made that was the perfect size for a coaster, which I used for years at work. Someday, when I get more time to get organized, some of these things and others will find their way to work here. Nothing like a touch of home to

remind you that no matter how long of a day you have at work, you can always go home. I also ran across a letter my late mother had written me. I don’t know when it was written — some time during the seven years we lived in Kansas — but she wrote about looking forward to seeing me, so we must have been making plans to visit. Doesn’t matter how old you

are or how long they’ve been gone, but when you lose someone, you miss them forever, and reminders can be both happy and sad. The letter choked me up, but also brought back a lot of good memories. More memories washed over me as I packed away a doll house and Tonka toys in storage until we move to Humphrey, Neb. I remember watching Claire play with her doll house and the roads Alek built in his mom’s flower bed. The time has gone by quickly, but we packed a lot of memories in that time. When I look at what my children have made, it reminds

me how great it is to reflect and think back to those times when Claire and Alek were little. I got to see life through their eyes, when everything seemed new and each day brought its own excitement. They are off in college now, and I enjoy them as young adults. There may not be anymore key chains coming my way or hot pads that work as coasters, but the Claire and Alek of those years should be proud of the young people they’ve grown into. I am.

Restaurant cell phone distractions still irritate ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The digital divide is wider than ever between diners who talk, tweet and snap pictures mid-meal and those who wish they’d just shut up, shut down and be present. Caught at the center of the discord are restaurant owners and chefs, who must walk the careful line of good customer service for both those who dine under the influence of smart phones, and those who won’t. But as the devices have morphed into an unrelenting appendage for texting, photography and games, more restaurateurs are challenged to keep the peace. Owners who once relied mostly on “no cell phones, please” signs, increasingly are experimenting with everything from penalties for using phones, discounts for not and outright bans on photography. “There’s no place to get away from the chatter,” said

Julie Liberty of Miami, who started the Facebook page “Ban Cell Phones From Restaurants” earlier this year. “Everything has a soundtrack, including when you go into the ladies room. That’s just not right.” It’s a touchy issue. Consider the crush of news coverage Eva Restaurant in Los Angeles generated when it began offering patrons a 5 percent discount if they leave their phone at the door. Online comments ranged from cheers of “YES!” to others who said their phones would have to be pried from their cold, dead hands. The policy is working, though. Eva’s Rom Toulon said about 40 percent of our customers will leave their cell phones at the door. “After a few cocktails and glasses of wine, it can be challenging to remember that you left the phone behind,” he said.

Finding the good in a natural disaster By BETSY S. FRANZ

Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them? — Rose F. Kennedy ••• lthough many people envy the residents of sunny Florida, with our almost-constant summertime weather, the fall of 2004 brought nothing but sympathy from our northern friends and relatives. During a period of two months, the east coast of Florida was hit by three major hurricanes! But in the midst of boarding and un-boarding windows and living without electricity and hot water for weeks at a time, a tiny miracle arrived in our yard that seemed to make everything else bearable. When we woke up on the morning of Sept. 5, after Hurricane Frances had hit our coast with winds of up to 75 miles per hour, my husband and I stood on the porch on the sheltered side of our home and watched the still-powerful winds topple and break huge, ancient, mighty oaks. Suddenly, in the midst of these destructive winds, we spotted a flash of color in our garden. No more than 10 feet from where we stood, a ruby-throated hummingbird emerged and hovered in front of our native firebush plant, jockeying back and forth with the gusts of wind to get nectar from the swaying plant. Unbelievably, this bird came back time and again to drink from this plant. After years of trying to lure them, this was the first time we had ever seen a hummingbird in our yard — or in Florida! Because of their scarcity, the sight of a hummingbird in Brevard County is almost a miracle in itself. But to see the determination of this tiny three-inch bird, which weighs about a tenth of an ounce, in the face of a storm that put fear into the hearts of millions of Florida residents, was truly remarkable. The next morning, most of the firebush plant was gone, victim of the winds that continued to batter our state for hours. But much to our pleasure and surprise, our new hummingbird visitor was still there, dining on the plants that remained.

A

Chicken Soup for the Soul Although we didn’t have power and the boarded windows blocked out the light, my first action of the day was to dig out an old, previously unvisited hummingbird feeder, and boil up some hummingbird nectar on our propane stove. The next day, when the stores opened again and most practical people were standing in line buying batteries and bottled water, I was at a local department store with an armload of new hummingbird feeders, which I quickly filled and hung outside. That was enough to get the hummingbirds to move right in! I had lived in Florida for 37 years and had never seen a hummingbird, one of my favorite forms of wildlife. Although I had been trying to plant all the right plants to attract them, it took a hurricane for me to finally lure them to my yard. Almost every day since the hurricanes, I have had the joy of observing the visiting hummingbirds. With a feeder right outside my office window, I get a daily bird’s eye view. I have watched as they chase each other through the yard, and I have had them fly right between my arms as I refilled their feeders. And I have become very familiar with their buzzing and chittering sounds that let me know they are always around, even when I can’t see them. They remained through the next, more powerful hurricane (Hurricane Jeanne), and have stayed ever since. The hurricane season of 2004 affected everyone in Florida, some more than others. They affected me in a very positive way. Every time I see the hummingbirds, I am reminded of the many blessings that nature holds for us: messages of beauty, strength and determination.

The power of hope By KAMIL ZAWADZKI

hen Garden City’s Builders of Hope cancer support group meets each month, there is more to it than the disease or their numbers. It’s about being able to come together with other people who know what it means to be diagnosed with, live with, and survive after cancer. “We may be few, but we enjoy each other’s company,” said Denice Good, a seven-year survivor of breast cancer. The group is casual, and they don’t meet with any certain agenda. They talk about anything from politics to business to just their everyday lives. Talk about cancer, including treatment and awareness, can weave its way into the discussion, particularly when new members come to check out what the group is all about. “The group can meet you where you’re at,” Good said, adding that people can use it to find out where they can look for reliable sources and responsible information about it. But there’s also humor, and the participants join in joking about aspects of living with, and after, cancer. “Any disease, you come up with ways to deal with it,” Good said. “Joining other survivors, you share it.” And humor is just one coping mechanism that helps lighten the daunting burden of cancer. That doesn’t mean that they don’t take cancer, whatever its form, seriously. But through their experiences with it, each participant can find solace in knowing that they’ve been able to make it this far, and they can pass that encouragement on to others who may join the group. The point of it all, they say, is to help people overcome the disease, if not physically, then mentally and spiritually. This group is a reincarnation of the original cancer support group that served the community but eventually fell by the wayside. When he arrived in Garden City as a chaplain at St. Catherine Hospital in 2002, Remigius Ekweariri saw that there was a need for such a gathering to be resumed. “Out here in this community, there is a hunger for something to get people together,” he said. “And that’s how we started it.” The group was much larger then, Ekweariri said. Some members simply moved away to other communities; others passed away, and not necessarily from the cancer. But even as their numbers have dwindled steadily, the Builders of Hope believe it is important to keep their group going and open. “The number is important, but it is not the essence,”

Each Saturday in October, The Garden City Telegram will be publishing a special “pink page” that will feature local stories about the fight against cancer. THIS WEEK: Cancer support groups. NEXT WEEK: Breast cancer survivors.

Remigius Ekweariri, chaplain for St. Catherine Hospital and the Builders of Hope group, prepares to speak during the 2011 Survivors Brunch, which is a part of Relay for Life. The Builders of Hope participate in the Relay as a team each year to benefit the American Cancer Society.

Builders of Hope • The Builders of Hope support group meets the first Sunday of each month at 2 p.m. at the Downtown Vision office, 413 N. Main St. St. Catherine Hospital Chaplain Remigius Ekweariri, who helps conduct the meetings, can be reached at 272-2513. Ekweariri said. “The essence is what you get out of this group.” Camaraderie, knowing there is a forum they can turn to where people know what they’re going through is important for cancer patients and their caregivers. Ekweariri said that it might not necessarily be therapeutic, but it can help people with what they need to go through during their treatment. “I’m just a normal, average person,” Good said. “If I made it, I need to be that beacon for others.” The group has multiple goals and functions, and members attend events such as Relay for Life to help raise awareness. And they want people to be sure to get regular check-ups and screenings. The more common

type of screenings for females might be mammograms, and for males, prostate exams. The Builders of Hope also engages in fundraising efforts and gives part of its funds to the Cancer Center at St. Catherine Hospital each year to help the facility pay for screenings. And this year, as the Cancer Center didn’t have as much of a need for such financial assistance, the funding will benefit United Methodist Mexican-American Ministries for labs and tests on cancer diagnoses. And while October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Builders of Hope include people who’ve faced various forms of cancer. “It’s not only about breast cancer,” said John Ryder, a 12year survivor of esophegeal cancer. He attributes his survival to early detection, treatment and surgery. He said fewer people know about this particular type of cancer, and symptoms like constant heartburn often can be overlooked. “When somebody tells me they’ve got gas, right away I say ‘go to the doctor,’” he said. “Don’t fool around with it.”

The survival rate for esophegeal cancer is 5 percent. And Ryder recalled mentoring several people diagnosed in later stages who did not survive because the disease already had taken its toll. This was in stark contrast with Ryder, who was diagnosed early enough and who underwent a regimen of various treatments including chemotherapy, as well as surgery that required some rearrangement of his organs, such as his stomach. “That’s the biggest thing with esophegeal cancer, people don’t go to the doctor. They take TUMS,” Ryder said. And, he said, the high fatality rate makes esophegeal cancer “one of those where it’s ‘pack your bags, you’re going home.’” “We know it is a battle of win and loss, just like every disease,” Ekweariri said. “... It’s something to look forward to to have a group to come out here, if someone is thinking about ‘what if (it happens) to me?’” In addition to survivors or those diagnosed with a cancer, the Builders of Hope group counts among its members some caregivers, including William Widows, the husband of colon cancer survivor Kelly Widows.

Family support is a crucial component of fighting cancer, the group members agreed. And a diagnosis and treatment also can take their toll on the caregivers who have to watch their loved ones struggle with the disease. “It can definitely be hard on us, too, because we can only help them so much,” William said. Kelly was diagnosed in 2009 but feels she was fortunate, because her cancer did not progress much and was treated fairly quickly compared to others who have to go through multiple rounds of chemotherapy just to keep it in check, much less eradicate it completely. The couple said that the news that the cancer was gone, and was unlikely to come back, was the best they could get. “It meant more to me than winning the lottery,” Kelly said. “To hear news like that, and I’ve met some real good people that had to go through some tough times... It makes me feel very, very blessed.” She said what got her through the experience was the support of her husband and family, in addition to the doctors and others she’s met throughout her journey. They come to the Builders of Hope to pay it forward and offer that support to help others face their fears, cope with diagnosis and treatment and fight the disease. The Builders of Hope want to remind people that they are there not only for survivors but for caregivers, family and friends. And they stressed the need for that group support and camaraderie that people touched by the disease can find, not only among their own families, but groups such as the Builders of Hope. “I remember one woman who came here that was a caregiver, and she came because this was her respite,” Good said. Others agreed that coming to the group can help a person come to terms with everything that’s going on, and that it’s OK to embrace it rather than give up. “You can’t get depressed about it,” Ryder said. “Life dealt me a bad hand, but that doesn’t mean I have to accept it.” “It’s a battle,” Good said. “But you can’t surrender.”

In search of the best places to hook up suggestion. Many readers told us that the best place to meet men was in church. Here’s more: From El Paso, Texas: Take up shooting! Men are at the gun show, and guys like a gal with good aim. To win a man and keep a man, a woman needs to engage in activities that men like, too. Iowa: I live in a small rural community and have found that going to estate auctions and flea markets (even farm sales) can be quite “helpful” in meeting single men. I also recommend going car shopping. California: I am a 53-year-old guy, so I will come at it from a different angle. Want a relationship? Reverse the situation. Why should a guy pick you? Do you have great hair, a nice smile or a good career? Don’t be shy about using what you have. No one will do it for you. Let him know why he should date you instead of the woman across the room. Ask friends for some brutal honesty. If you find a common criticism, take it to heart. Do you love bright

blue eye shadow? Most guys don’t. Ditto for women who wear dresses that look like tents or women who smell like goats. Finally, be realistic. If you keep going after those hunky young surfer types, and you don’t look like a model, you will spend a lot of nights alone. North Carolina: After my divorce, I dated a few men and found the good ones are hard to come by. Then I “friended” an old high school boyfriend on Facebook. Back then, he was the first guy my parents allowed me to date. He was gorgeous and liked me a lot. After all these years, we started talking again, got together and began a wonderful relationship. He is the love of my life, and we will be married soon. Chicago: Try the lake or a billiards hall. Guys love to play pool and go fishing. Also try the library or dog park.

(Borrow a dog from a friend if you don’t have one.) And remember, a mug shot is not a dating photo. California: I would say to first look for a relationship with yourself. If you want to take a class, play golf or do volunteer work, do those things for yourself, not because you might meet someone. Otherwise, if you don’t meet anyone, you’ll be disappointed. I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten involved in something hoping to meet a man, and then, rather than simply enjoying the event, I could only focus on the fact that meeting someone wasn’t happening. I would also say there is richness in groups of women, such as a church group. Those friendships are precious. — Been There, Done That Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Solutions for bleach mystery

Transcranial magnetic stimulation for tinnitus ByMICHAEL ROIZEN, M.D., AND MEHMET OZ, M.D.

“S

cotty, we need more power!” “I’m giving her all we’ve got, Captain. No, wait! We’ll use transcranial magnetic stimulation!” Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a potential treatment for tinnitus (it’s approved for treating depression, but not yet for chronic ringing in the ears), and though it may sound like a device to make space travel more efficient — a la “Star Trek” — it’s actually a noninvasive way to ease the chronic ringing and whooshing sounds that can fill one or both ears. Anything that provides some quiet is a big relief. Tinnitus can range from bothersome to debilitating — just ask the 50 million people in the U.S. who have it! (These days, half of all soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have tinnitus because of blasts from explosive devices.) Treatments lasting 3540 minutes are delivered via a magnetic coil placed next to the left side of the head. It sends short pulses of magnetic energy to the brain. There are no known negative side effects. TMS has been studied for almost three decades. It offers about three months’ worth of significant improvement for more

Becker’s Bridge

Dear Readers: In response to a reader who said that her towels were coming out of the washer and dryer with “mystery” bleach spots, I asked readers for input if they had this issue. Wow! Lots of replies came in, and here are just a few of them: • Carol in Texas says the spots on her towels were caused by a cleaner (that included bleach) that wasn’t being completely rinsed off the shower walls. When her family would wipe the walls after showering, the cleaner would get on the towels. Once she started rinsing the walls thoroughly, the problem went away. • Bill G. in Boca Raton, Fla., says that an acne medication caused the bleached-out spots on the towels. • Mia C. in Freehold, N.J., says that the bleach dispenser on her washing machine was the culprit. She spoke to a washing-machine serviceman, who said that those dispensers don’t always release all the bleach that’s in them.

than a third of people with newly diagnosed, severe tinnitus. Now Loyola University researchers are looking to see if TMS “treatments” offer double relief for the 12 percent of people with tinnitus who also have depression. (Stay tuned for that news!) For more information about tinnitus and TMS, contact the American Tinnitus Association. Tell them Captain Kirk sent you; William Shatner is their national spokesman — really!

Sometimes they release the rest of it into the next load. Once she stopped using the dispenser, there were no more problems. • Linda P. in South Dakota says she believes it is not how the towels are used, but the poorquality coloring at the factory. • J. in Kansas says that if you are adding the towels to the washer before the detergent is diluted, this could cause the problem with bleach-stained wash. Make sure the detergent is totally diluted in your washer before adding any towels. Thanks to all who took the time to drop us a line and share their experiences. — Heloise

2012 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Dear Annie: “Looking for a Relationship, Too” asked where to meet men. You suggested bookstores, grocery stores, hardware stores, laundromats and sporting events, and while taking college courses, playing golf, softball and basketball, doing volunteer work and traveling. Then you asked your readers for their ideas. People often overlook dance classes as an excellent way for men and women to meet each other. Many of these people are single and available. There is a vast array of dance styles for every possible interest: Latin, swing, ballroom, square dancing, country-western, jazz, ballet, from the elegant and slow to the wild and sexy. By its very nature, dance brings men and women together in close physical contact. Those who dance tend to have positive outlooks, enjoy fun times and are socially outgoing. I often find dates as a direct result of being in the dance world. — Dancing in California Dear California: Thanks for your upbeat

Saturday October 20, 2012 HAPPY BIRTHDAY The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH You could be overserious and unpredictable. You might even stir the pot with a boss or someone in charge. Try to avoid a power play, at all costs. A take-charge attitude seems reasonable and could be most effective. Someone is changing before your very eyes. Tonight: In the limelight. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Keep reaching out for more information, especially if you are not satisfied with what is coming up for you. You could be surprised by what comes in from out of left field. You might realize that you have had this information all along, but it takes an event like this to recall the memory. Tonight: Be entertained. Try a movie. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Deal with one other person directly, and you could be surprised by how you get exactly what you most want. Surprises tend to follow your path wherever you go. Friends seem to be an endless source of the unexpected. Do not get into a control game with a partner. Tonight: Make nice.

DAY IN THE STARS

BIZARRO

Jacquelline Bigar King Features

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Stay anchored and direct. You might not have all the answers, but you do need to find them. There is a financial decision looming over you that has several potential outcomes. Do not question your self-discipline. You know how to tell someone that you have had enough. This person could become very stubborn as a result. Tonight: Entertain at home. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You will go out of your way to make an impression on a person or situation. You actually are more appealing than you might realize; you do not need to try so hard. Just be yourself, and allow an important discussion to take place. Tonight: At a favorite spot. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Be sensitive to your own issues, as well as to a partner’s. You can become quite insecure at times. How this behavior manifests could differ from person to person. Try not to get involved in a financial deal or agreement. Stay away from spending in general right now. Tonight: Your treat.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Defer to others, and know full well what will happen. You could feel blocked in some sense. A key associate really does not want any input from you. Someone you look up to might be cantankerous and unpredictable. Tonight: Follow a friend’s lead.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH The Moon highlights you and what you want. You could have a strong reaction to a child or loved one who demands a lot at this moment. You probably will go along with this person’s request. A situation takes an interesting twist. Tonight: Let the good times happen.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Clear out errands in order to free up your day. Afterward, play it low-key or get together with friends. At last, you will have the opportunity to choose what you want. The unexpected occurs when making plans to travel in the near future. Tonight: Once in a while, staying home feels right.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Be as discreet as possible when dealing with a relative or neighbor. You’ll need to stay mum about what you know, whether it is the information this person wants or what he or she reveals. Rethink a judgment. Much that you hear or see tells you that you might need to readjust your thinking. Tonight: Not to be found.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH You come up with one idea after another today, which creates a problem, as you simply cannot squeeze everything in. A heavy discussion or an intense interaction is unavoidable. No matter what, you cannot turn the other way. A special friend comes to the rescue. Tonight: You know how to have fun.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHH Zero in on what you want, and others will seem delighted to play along. You could be taken aback by a friend’s unusually good mood. Enjoy the moment. This person could flip at any given moment, as he or she typically is difficult to deal with. Tonight: Where your pals are.

Grapes: Farmer finds new crop for unproductive land Continued from Page B1

ing with the vineyard and working toward the orchard,� he said. Strawn began by planting a small vineyard located in a half-acre patch of land that runs in front of his home, right along Highway 23. “This was kind of an experimental type of deal. Well, first of all, it was up close to the house, so I could watch it every day, and this was just kind of a vacant field and always had been — just some grass and stuff that was left over. I think I got one bale of hay off of it, one time in 10 years, so I thought, ‘This isn’t very productive,’� he said. He began with 300 grape plants. “The first half of these, when you get to this type here that have more foliage, these are your wine type and these are more for table grapes,� Strawn said, comparing the different types of grapes. “With grapes, you’ll get a good crop the fourth year, and so next year, I should have my first full crop.� The vineyard contains Niagara and Catabra, which are table grapes, Cambourcin grapes, which are used for red wine, and Marquis grapes, which are used for white wine.

A plot of grapevines are fenced off on a portion of land at Darrell Strawn’s home south of Cimarron. Although the drought has had a negative impact on his other crops, such as corn, he has discovered that grapes are a much tougher crop. “Grapes are hardy. I mean, they are tough,� Strawn said. He chose varieties of grapes that can withstand not only freezes of up to 20 degrees below zero, but that also can withstand extreme heat. “The main thing is, I didn’t want to put all of the effort and the money involved with it, if they’d just freeze out in the winter time, so that’s why I picked varieties that were adaptable to here,� he said. “Grapes need two things. They need well-drained soils — well,

this sandy soil is real well drained — and they need lots of sunshine. So it’s perfect, absolutely perfect.� Last spring, Strawn added an additional 1,200 plants in a two-acre area of land southwest of his home. There are eight varieties of wine grapes in that section, Chardonel, Marechal Foch, Seyval Blanc, Vincent, Steuben, Traminette, Vignoles and Vidal Blanc. Ultimately, he hopes to have five acres of grapes, from which to produce his own wine label. “We’ll probably do two whites, two reds and a rose,� he said. He said that in discovering that certain grapes grow

best in low humidity and a lot of sunshine, he also stumbled upon the perfect name for his label: Tierra del Sol. “It means the land of sun,� he said and laughed. “It kind of just came to me when it was about 117 degrees one day.�

He said that his son, Brandon Strawn, Culver City, Calif., came up with the label’s design, which is a picture of an orange Kansas sunset, overlooking a field. The next step, Strawn said, is to build a winery, where he will not only produce the wine, but also provide wine tastings. He said that his first vineyard already has evoked curiosity in passersby. “I’ve had people from Texas stop in. People drive by, and they’ll turn around,� Strawn said. In the meantime, Strawn is in the middle of harvesting milo, a crop he said is much improved from last year. He also still farms wheat, but decided to forego corn because of the water required. Because grapes require water, as well, another aspect of Strawn’s plan is to dig a well that will reach depths of about 500 feet, which he said will provide

a long-term supply of water for all of his crops. When asked if he and his fellow farmers and buddies give him a hard time, Strawn laughed and said, “Oh yeah, oh yeah. That’s why I started wearing sandals — just to spite them.� Strawn said that it’s all in fun and that, to him, the lighthearted ribbing is worth it because he’s now getting something out of a piece of land that once produced nothing. “I say it’s creative imagination,� he said and laughed, adding that he also plans to one day put his own golf-putting green on the property. It’s still too early to predict, but maybe Strawn’s vineyard will draw visitors the same way Kinsella’s baseball field did in the movie. “This is the funnest thing I’ve ever done ... besides skydiving,� Strawn said and laughed.

SMALL UPGRADES LEAD TO DREAM KITCHEN

Renovating a kitchen is the most disruptive and costly home project there is, other than major add-ons. And yet, for a busy family, this is the space where everyone meets and eats, at all hours of the day and night. You may have a dream kitchen in mind; however, how and when to accomplish the turnover is simply too daunting a task. If you are frustrated by working in a poorly planned, out-of-date kitchen, there are ways to improve it one or two changes at a time. Your reno budget will be divided up over a few years rather than months, and time out of the kitchen while repairs are taking place will not be as onerous. Begin with a list of fix-ups placed in order of urgency. If the fridge or stove doesn’t work, appliances will be at the top; if the floor is grungy or the countertops are stained, chipped or damaged, then those will be the first to go. This list will become your long-range plan. Here’s one way to order a long-term reno that offers tangible improvements you will enjoy every step of the way. Lighting is usually the last item we think about, but it’s so important and beneficial that it’s worth moving to the top of the list. New wiring will be required; install ceiling pot lights with a dimmer for overall brightness, task lights under the counter and a stylish pendant light or two if you have a table or island. This is a good time to investigate rope lighting or energysaving LED lighting, now available in undercounter strips. A fresh coat of paint on the ceiling and walls is a powerful decorating tool. Be sure to de-grease surfaces before you paint. Add to this a new backsplash, and the character of the kitchen will soar. The backsplash design can be as simple and as modern as subway tiles laid end to end horizontally or vertically, or set at angles to produce a diamond pattern. Highlight plain white tiles by inserting a few glass or metallic tiles as trim or in a set pattern. Take your time and investigate all the tile options. You can produce your very own work of art for this prominent area. When it’s time for the new countertop, it makes sense to replace the kitchen sink and faucets as well, as the new dimensions and hole locations are required for cutting and fitting the counter. Solidsurface materials are a good countertop choice. The cost is midrange, between laminates and stone. Colors and patterns permeate the thickness of the counter, they are non-porous, and seams are bonded to eliminate cracks. Choose from sink styles that sit flush or under the counter and a modern do-it-all kitchen faucet. Good-quality cabinetry can be refaced and redecorated with new handles to achieve a fresh, up-todate look. If old cabinets are in poor repair, then replace the lot. There’s a good range of cabinets in different price points. The door styles and finishes provide a wide scope of design possibilities. The inviting family kitchen shown here, designed by Kitchen Craft, features all the elements I’ve discussed and could have been pulled together over time as budget and circumstances dictated. Well-made, high-quality features never go out of style. ** * Debbie Travis’ House to Home column is produced by Debbie Travis and Barbara Dingle.

DIY nursery chic: 4 drool-worthy projects By ELLEN GIBSON

Pumpkin tips from the pros By JENNIFER FORKER Associated Press

Think you know the latest tricks for carving a creepy pumpkin? The pros continue to push the barriers. A handful of people become professional pumpkin carvers each fall, specializing in fantastical designs. Among them are Alex Wer, self-styled “Pumpkin Geek,� who lives near Sacramento, Calif.; Scott Cummins, a Perryton, Texas, middleschool art teacher; and Marc Evan and Chris Soria, the Maniac Pumpkin Carvers of New York City. Wer does his carving between insurance sales and an evening packagedelivery route. He works with the fake, foam pumpkins sold at craft stores, so his intricate work has longevity. Evan and Soria drop their jobs as illustrators for a few months to carve pumpkins for festivals, parties and individual clients. The long hours leave the two childhood friends battling sore wrists and aching backs by late November. “It’s a labor of love,� says Evan, who also carves pumpkins on the Food Network’s “Halloween Wars� this season. “Pumpkin carving is definitely not the easiest way to make money. It’s not a ‘get rich quick’ scheme.� For inspiration, scroll through these carvers’ websites — The Pumpkin Geek, Pumpkin Gutter, Maniac Pumpkin Carvers. Or check out the creepy, three-dimensional portraits at Villafane Studios.

Mod Podge to the back of each piece with the paintbrush or craft brush, and press the scrap against the wall. With this glue, the piece will be moveable at first if you don’t like your initial placement. Step 3: Let it grow! As the limbs reach out and up, tear the paper thinner, just like on a real tree. Create the tree trunk with various-size scraps of paper using a collage technique. For a cute addition, hang the baby’s name off a low branch that reaches out across the crib. Step 4: Stack some of the leftover paper and cut out simple leaves. Cluster them along the branches. You can adorn the tree with birds, butterflies or even rhinestones. http://projectnursery. com/2012/06/diy-how-tomake-a-decoupage-tree/

No-sew bunting flags (From Ginocchio and Fluhr, ProjectNursery.com) Materials: printed papers or fabrics ruler colorful ribbon or pompom fabric trim hot glue gun scissors Step 1: At a crafts or scrapbooking store, pick out a variety of printed papers

or fabric remnants. Step 2: Using a ruler, draw an 8-inch line on the back of a piece of paper or fabric. This will be the distance from the point of your triangle to the base. Turn the ruler perpendicular to one end of the line and make a “T� by drawing a line 6 inches long. Use the ruler to connect the top edges of the “T� to the point, making a triangle. Cut out this first pennant and use it as a template for the rest. Step 3: Line up your different-patterned flags in the order you want. Lay them side by side so they are pointing down and almost touching. Apply hot glue in a line across the top edge of each triangle and affix the ribbon or trim overtop. (Optional: Add iron-on letters to the flags to spell out baby’s name.) Once the glue dries, hang the bunting flags like a banner or in a zigzag pattern. http://projectnursery. com/2012/05/diy-no-sewbunting-flags/

Materials: Foam craft brushes Mod Podge matte finish Six sheets of patterned, heavy-duty wrapping paper (or swatches of colorful wallpaper or fabric) Step 1: Wipe the insides of the drawers with a moist rag. If they’re musty, wipe them with mineral spirits or Murphy’s Oil Soap and let them air dry in the sun. Step 2: After selecting six sheets of wrapping paper (or however many drawers

Materials: scrapbook paper (any size), about 20 sheets for a 6-foot tree Mod Podge matte finish scissors 2-inch-wide paintbrush or foam craft brush paper bowl or plate ladder or step stool Step 1: Take fabric swatches from your baby’s bedding to a crafts or paper store, and grab a mix of printed, solid and glittered papers in the same color family. Step 2: Start building the tree at the part of the trunk where the limbs begin to branch off.

photos or art reduced to fit small frames 4 screw eyes fishing line or thin wire glue stick paint polyurethane Step 1: Paint the frames to make them colorful. Some may need a light sanding first. Add a coat of polyurethane after the paint is dry. Step 2: If any of your frames has a support arm on the back to prop it up, pull it off. You want the back of the mini frame to be completely smooth. Step 3: Put your photos or artwork in the small frames. (You could use abstract art, photos of vintage trucks or pictures of baby’s cousins, for instance.) Step 4: To connect two small frames vertically, run the ribbon behind the artwork but inside the frame back. Cut a piece of decorative paper the same size as each frame back and, with a glue stick, paste it on. Step 5: Remove the glass and backing from the large frame. Hang the four pairs of small frames from the large frame by twisting four screw eyes into the back of the large frame and then tying a ribbon to each screw eye. Step 6: Tie a length of fishing line or thin wire to each screw eye, then tie all four pieces together so the mobile hangs evenly. Knot the end for attaching to a ceiling hook. http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/pretty-as-a-picture-frame-mobi-144393

Car seat, diapers, changing table, crib, stroller, blankets, onesies: A new baby is a bundle of joy that also costs a bundle of cash. Nursery decor is one area where new parents can save some money by creating their own design elements. Opting for DIY doesn’t mean missing out on the fun of browsing stores and catalogs: Often a splurge item — such as a $400 Jonathan Adler giraffe lamp — can serve as inspiration for a cheaper, handmade version, says Pam Ginocchio, cofounder of baby design site Project Nursery. Handmade decorations also lend the baby’s room a unique personality, she says, and give parents a project to work on together before baby arrives. Here, Ginocchio, her business partner, Melisa Fluhr, and a few other DIY design bloggers share their favorite projects for baby’s room. Whether you’re creating a cozy nest at home or seeking ideas for a shower gift, these crafts can add warmth and style to a little one’s space.

you have), cut the sheets down to the size of the drawers. If all the drawers are the same size, use the first rectangle as a template. Step 3: Apply a thin, even coat of Mod Podge adhesive to the bottom of the first drawer. Mod Podge is 100 percent water-based, so it won’t stink up baby’s clothes. Step 4: Glue the cut-tosize paper rectangle to the bottom of the drawer by pressing it along the center and out towards the corners to eliminate bubbles or wrinkling. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all drawers. Step 5: Give the drawers four hours to dry, then apply a thin top coat of Mod Podge over the paper to protect against wear and tear. Let everything dry overnight and you’re left with fresh, durably lined drawers that provide a little dose of happy every time they’re opened. h t t p : / / w w w. y o u n g houselove.com/2010/03/ nursery-progress-liningour-dresser-drawers/

LaSalle guides Longhorns to win over Lakin, 34-17 By KEVIN THOMPSON sports@gctelegram.com

Brad Nading/Telegram

Holcomb’s Blake Richmeier, right, breaks in to the Lakin secondary for a 20-yard gain off a block by Clay Gilbert, center, Friday at Holcomb.

HOLCOMB — After losing the opening round of district play last week, Lakin was in a fight to stay alive for postseason play. But it also put more pressure on the Broncs in their rivalry with Holcomb on the Longhorns’ field. Live to fight another day, or lose and stay home. The host Longhorns had their own plans, however, as they picked up district win number two with a 34-17 win over the Broncs on Friday. Despite playing without injured junior Heath Tucker (nine touchdowns scored this season), the Longhorns (now 7-1, 2-0) unloaded an arsenal of other weapons in the win and securing

a spot in the postseason. Chief among those was quarterback Tyler LaSalle, who rushed 20 times for 239 yards in the first three quarters. Aaron Hernandez, who scored three times, carried the ball 2 yards for Holcomb’s first score, just over two minutes in. Six minutes later, after Lakin’s Pedro Chavez connected for a 35yard field goal, LaSalle outran the defense up the Lakin sideline for a 63-yard score. He then gave Holcomb a boost with a short run with just under four minutes to play to put the Longhorns up 21-3 at the half. By halftime Holcomb had outgained Lakin 277 yards to 148, including 167 alone by LaSalle, while the defense held the daunting running game of the Broncs to just 77 first-half yards.

Holcomb finished the game with 456 total yards, with just four gained in the final quarter,which the Broncs controlled. Hernandez scored two more times from two yards out in the third period that gave Holcomb a 34-10 lead. Lakin controlled the final period, running 27 plays, but scoring just once on a Gage McAtee 2yard run. McAtee and Ty Adams, both averaging over 100 yards on the ground, were held to 115 combined for the game, but Lakin was held to just 167 rushing yards, or 120 under its season average. Holcomb coach Jerry Johnson was happy with the win — and the Longhorns’ offense specifically — but he knows they have See LaSalle, Page D3

Buffs simply overmatched

Hutchinson rolls its way to 56-14 win over Garden City. By BRETT MARSHALL

bmarshall@gctelegram.com

HUTCHINSON — They came. They saw. They played. Taking on Hutchinson’s No. 1-ranked Salthawks, the Garden City High School Buffaloes simply were overmatched by a team that has produced seven state championships in Class 5A and 6A over the past eight years, with the final score 56-14 on Friday night at Gowans Stadium. Yep, it was one of those games where you might simply put the tape of the game in the drawer and never look at it. And while it was to be a long trip home for the Buffs, they will now re-focus on The Hatchet Game at Dodge City next Friday to conclude the regular season. A win will assure the Buffs of a runner-up district finish and their third straight playoff appearance under coach Brian Hill. “Going forward, I told the kids this is the kind of program we want to have,” Hill said afterward. “That’s the focus to our younger players. I wanted them to understand how Hutchinson conducts itself, how they prepare, how they play each and every down. “ If ever so briefly, the Buffs held a lead on the state’s No. 1ranked team after the Salthawks coughed up the ball on an errant pitch from quarterback Trevor Turner to Jamison Likes on their first possession of the game.

Travis Morrise/Hutchinson News

Garden City’s Brady Bean, left, scores a touchdown as he gets past Hutchinson’s Turner Wintz in the first quarter Friday at Gowans Stadium in Hutchinson. It did take the Buffs five plays to cover the 18 yards, but Brady Bean’s 3-yard run capped it off with 8:04 to play in the first. After that early Garden City lead, Hutchinson did what it does best — run, run, run — and then

strike with big-play passes. The Salthawks had five possessions after that and put it into the end zone each time. It took the Salthawks three minutes to tie the game at 7 when they marched 59 yards in

seven plays, with Turner sneaking in from 1-yard out. Kassidy Lemons’ point-after was perfect. Following a short drive that ended with a 41-yard Mitchell Hernandez punt, the Salthawks went right back to work. This

time it was Colby Turner’s 1yard run that capped off a sevenplay, 50-yard drive at the 1:28 mark to make it 14-7 at the end of the first. See Overmatched, Page D3

Zito keeps Giants alive in NLCS Scott City cruises past ST. LOUIS (AP) — Barry Zito pitched the San Francisco Giants back into the NL championship series, dominating into the eighth inning of a 5-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night that narrowed their deficit to 3-2. The defending champion Cardinals might have thrown away a chance to clinch a second straight World Series trip. Pitcher Lance Lynn’s toss on a possible forceout deflected off the second-base bag, paving the way for the Giants’ four-run fourth. Pablo Sandoval homered for the second straight night and Zito made an extremely rare offensive contribution with a perfectly executed bunt for an RBI single. The Giants’ win in Game 5 sent the series back to San Francisco. Game 6 will begin Sunday in the twilight at AT&T Park, with Ryan Vogelsong pitching against the Cardinals’ Chris Carpenter. Once again this postseason, the Giants benefited from a big error. Needing three straight wins at Cincinnati to avoid elimination in the division series, San Francisco began its comeback on a bobble by third baseman Scott Rolen in the 10th inning that gave the Giants the go-ahead run in Game 3. The Giants improved to 4-2 on the road this postseason and

Associated Press

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Barry Zito threw 7 2/3 shutout innings in the Giants’ 5-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLCS . have won Zito’s last 13 starts, with the last setback on Aug. 2. They’re averaging more than six runs a game during the streak, although the lefty didn’t need much help in this one. Zito looked like the same guy who won the 2002 AL Cy Young award. He retired 11 batters in a row in one stretch while scattering six hits with six strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings. Giants catcher Buster Posey twice tapped Zito on the chest when he was pulled in the eighth

inning. It was Zito’s first postseason win since 2006, shortly before he left the A’s and signed a $126 million, seven-year contract with San Francisco. Zito was left off the postseason roster when the Giants won the 2010 World Series because he had pitched so ineffectively. He started Game 4 of the division series against the Reds earlier in this year’s playoffs and lasted only 2 2/3 innings. See NLCS, Page D4

TMP-Marian 0 At Scott City, the Beavers had little trouble against the visiting Monarchs, as Scott City led 46-0 at the half on its way to a 58-0 district win over TMP-Marian on Friday. Dalton Buehler led a balanced Scott City offense on the ground with three touchdown runs, including an 80-yard run for the first score of the game.

Overmatched: Buffs run over by Salthawks in 56-14 loss Continued from Page D1

After that, it was like watching a runaway freight train that could suddenly convert itself into a speeding jet. Colby Turner’s 4-yard score midway through the second made it 21-7 with 6:55 to play. Hutchinson, which had entered the game averaging only 78 yards passing, hit the airwaves, as Joe Dower took a 21-yard pass from Trevor Turner, and Emilio Tafolla hauling in a 25-yard halfback pass from Tanner Higgins with just under a minute left before intermission. Mercifully, after a quick three-and-out for the Buffs, the half ended with Trevor Turner taking a knee. There wasn’t anything in the second half that went any better for the Buffs. The Salthawks scored two touchdowns in the first 1:51 without having run a play from scrimmage. First, Higgins returned the opening third-quarter kickoff 90 yards, and then when the Buffs got the ball back, Greyson Tempel was intercepted by Colby Turner, who returned it 41 yards untouched. Before one could comfortable in a seat, it was Hutchinson, 49-7, and 10:09 to play in the third. Garden got a consolation TD at the 5:22 mark of the third quarter when Taylor Foley, the hero of the 31-26 victory the week before over Maize, made a

Hutch would close out the scoring with its backups playing, as Braydon Wells scampered 21 yards with 5:53 remaining in the game. “That’s a good football team we beat tonight,” Hutchinson coach Randy Dreiling said. “We just happened to hit on all cylinders. They’re a better team than people give them credit because of the score.” Hill said that the plan was to try and stop the run and force Hutch to beat them through the air,

something they had not shown an ability to do all season. But Friday night was not one of those. “We were going to dare them to throw the ball, and we got caught looking into their backfield,” Hill said. “They were able to get behind us. Credit to them, they performed just like you’d expect from a team that is used to playing in big games. They didn’t make any mistakes, except the one early fumble and the other one late.” By halftime, and eventually for the game, Hutch had completed 6-of-7 passes for 184 yards and a pair

final period when Caleb Seeger hit 10-of-12 passes before throwing an end zone interception. “We knew it would be tough. I was proud of the defense stopping the run, but the passing ‘D’ is something we’ve got to work on,” Johnson said. The touchdown right before the half was huge, psychologically, he said. “Lakin’s a good team. I told our kids being up 21-3 on a good team, that was a good position to be in,” Johnson said. For Lakin coach Jeff Fuss, preparing the Broncs to stop LaSalle was hard. “Not only do they have a couple of kids who can break it for 50, but they can spread the field. And we had kids in proper places tonight to make a play, but LaSalle just makes some moves, we stand there, and he’s gone,” he said. “We had a difficult time on that kid.” Compound that with the Lakin players deal-

ing with the unexpected death of former basketball coach Greg Reed earlier in the week and the Friday morning funeral. Both proved emotionally taxing, but Fuss was proud of how his team responded. “We talked about trying to start fast, but after the week we’ve had--I’m not a moral victory guy, and I’m not happy we got beat, but I’m proud of the way our kids played,” he said. “It would have been easy to fold up after that first quarter.” Holcomb hosts Cimarron (7-1, 2-0) Thursday for the District 16 title, and the right to host the first-round of playoffs. The Broncs (4-4, 0-2) hosts the Southwestern Heights Mustangs Thursday in the “Battle for the Golden Saddle.”

of TDs and they finished the game with 271 rushing yards on 42 attempts, well below their season average of 397. For Bean and Tempel, two of the springboards of this 2012 season, it was a tough pill to swallow. But both of them vowed the Buffs would be ready for the grudge game with Dodge City. “You look at it (the score) and it feels like a blowout, but I feel like we played them tough a good part of the game,” Bean said. “They just come out and play every snap, they execute perfectly and we

didn’t. We made mistakes that cost you big against a team like Hutch. For the future, that’s the team that we want to be.” Tempel, harassed all night by the Salthawk defense, finished with just 49 yards rushing on 12 carries and was 12-of-23 for 78 yards and two interceptions. “We just didn’t execute on some of the plays and we’ve just gotta get better,” Tempel said. “We’re disappointed in the outcome, but we’ll get back after it this week and we just need to have a good week of practice.” The Buffs got a few players banged up and their status will be unclear for the Dodge game. Bryce Bickett and Ivan Vivanco both left the game with undetermined injuries. Logan Dechant never suited up because of an injury sustained in the Maize win, forcing Hill to utilize sophomore Zac Finch and freshman Jared Koster at running back. “Considering what we were up against, I thought they did a very good job,” Hill said of his two young backs. Koster was the leading rusher for the Buffs, getting 61 yards on 14 carries, while Finch, playing just in the second half, had 19 yards on 5 carries. The Buffs are now 5-3 overall and 1-1 in District 8. Hutchinson improved to 6-2 overall and 2-0 in the district, and will be on the road at Maize. Maize won a wild and wooly shootout

with the Red Demons, 5451. Maize is 1-1 in the district and Dodge is 0-2.

For the most part, he said, his defense played well, stopping Lakin a number of times and keeping them out of the end zone. But the Longhorn pass defense got exposed a bit, especially in the

Indiana Fever rout Minnesota Lynx in Game 3 of WNBA Finals INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve drew national attention with her screaming, jacket-tossing meltdown in Game 2 of the WNBA Finals. The Indiana Fever silenced her in Game 3. Shavonte Zellous scored a career-high 30 points to help the Fever beat the Lynx 76-59 on Friday night. “You know, I was fired

up for this game,” Zellous said. “That Game 2 left a bad taste in our mouth. You know, we could have done a better job in a lot of different things, and I think today, we made a conscious effort to do things better.” Tamika Catchings added 17 points and Erlana Larkins had 10 points and 15 rebounds for the Fever, who took a 2-1 lead in the

series and can win their first title at home Sunday night against the defending champs. It had been a tense series. Reeve was fined after her actions in Game 2, which Fever coach Lin Dunn called “disrespectful.” Indiana’s play did the talking on Friday. The Fever’s lead of 70-33 with 1:58 left in the third quar-

ter was the largest lead by any team in WNBA Finals history. The extent of the blowout left Reeve seated with her hand on her chin for much of the second half. Rebekkah Brunson, who scored 12 points, was the only Minnesota player to reach double figures. “I think Indiana played the way Indiana always plays,” Reeve said. “They

defend. You defend, you have a chance to win a championship. That’s it.” When asked what the Lynx need to do differently in Game 4, Reeve simply said, “Score more points than them.” Minnesota’s previous playoff scoring low this season was 70 points against the Fever in Game 1 of the Finals. Maya Moore was held to

eight points in Game 3 and Seimone Augustus, who scored 27 points in Game 2, had six on 3-for-9 shooting on Friday night. Minnesota finished with just six assists. Indiana did it all without No. 2 scorer Katie Douglas. She is still sidelined with a severely sprained left ankle. Reserve guard Jeanette Pohlen is out with a left knee injury.

NFL players play the name game for introductions HOUSTON (AP) — State your name and school. That’s the only guidance NFL players get before taping introductions for Sunday night games. Most simply list their college, but some players get creative. Last week, three players on the Houston Texans’ offensive line gave their elementary schools and one his middle school. The announcers joked that preschools were sure to come next week. (They were actually behind on that: A former Seahawks player once said his daycare group.) The Houston linemen decided to use their elementary schools last season for their first appearance in a playoff game. When Houston was to be on NBC again Sunday night, they planned to recite their middle schools. What they didn’t realize is that players must specifically ask to make a change or the network uses what already has been shot. So new addition Derek Newton said his middle school according to plan, only to be the odd man out when three of the four other linemen were left with their elementary schools from last year’s footage. “We were kind of bummed out about it because we all wanted to be the same,” Houston left tackle Duane Brown said. A fifth lineman, Antoine Caldwell, also didn’t follow suit because he was a backup last year and not privy to the plan. The former Alabama player still stood

out, though. He passed on saying Alabama for “Roll Tide Roll.” Brown got a great response from the introductions and said they have another surprise planned for Houston’s next night game on Nov. 11. “We try to get away from the norm,” he said. “We wanted to take it all the way back to our early beginnings. We had a good time with it. It was pretty fun. I heard from my former teachers, and the principal contacted one of my cousins who goes there now to tell me how proud they were that I said the school. It was a huge hit.” Fred Gaudelli, the producer of the Sunday night games, said players love the introductions. “Especially guys that don’t handle the ball, offensive linemen or defensive players, it’s their chance to introduce themselves to the country and show who they are,” Gaudelli said. Then there are those who make up schools or use the introductions to joke or give a shout-out to family members. “We let them do what they want,” Gaudelli said. “It’s their moment to personalize themselves.” Former NBC producer Don Ohlmeyer started the practice of players introducing themselves in 2000 when they were still doing “Monday Night Football.” They’ve continued to do that since moving the show to Sunday night. He got the idea from college broadcasts in the late 1960s and

early 1970s when players would introduce themselves and state their heights and weights in pregame shows. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is a player who’s always taken advantage of his moment in the introductions. In one of his early ones, he said Duke and Donna University. Of course there is no such school. Suggs revealed to a producer that Duke and Donna are the first names of his parents. “You’ve got to have fun,” he said, adding that he doesn’t plan them in advance. “I used to go straight with it, but they started messing my name up, and where I went to school and who I was, so I started to say things that have to deal with me.” He’s also used “Sizzle Sun Devil” as a nod to Arizona State’s mascot and even incorporated lyrics from a Jay Z song in his introduction last year (Sizzle Ball So Hard University.) “He’s always been a creative one,” Gaudelli said. “I love Terrell Suggs for that.” Another player who’s used the platform to have some fun is Minnesota defensive end Jared Allen. He attended Idaho State, but over the years has said everything from The Culinary Academy to home school. Once he simply said: “Thanks Mom.” San Francisco 49ers receiver Randy Moss gave some publicity to his hometown in West Virginia when he went with the fictitious Rand University while playing for the Vikings.

Associtaed Press

Houston Texans’ Duane Brown poses in an NFL football jersey in Houston. Last week during player introductions, three players on the Texans’ offensive line, including Brown, gave their elementary schools and one his middle school. Green Bay cornerback Charles Woodson, who won the Heisman Trophy at Michigan, had a little fun with his intro several years ago when he played for the Raiders. He said: “Mr. Woodson to you all. You know the school.” Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr, who went to Grand Valley State, has never used anything other than his name and college.

But while talking about it this week, the player from Flint, Mich., thought of one he’ll use next time. “I would say, Brandon Carr, Flintstone,” he said in a nod to his hometown. Ohio State players frequently put the overenunciating THE in front of their school name, and other schools like Texas have copied that style. Last Sunday, Packers linebacker

D.J. Smith, who went to Appalachian State, added the hard THE in front of his school in the introductions. And everyone’s heard Miami players simply saying The U instead of the school’s full name. “It’s just something we called Miami when we were at school,” Houston’s Andre Johnson said. “The U is on our helmets so it was just something that we always said. It was just something that always stuck with us.” Sometimes players who try to be cute run into trouble with their schools. “Some guys do their junior college and then their real college calls them and gets mad at them and they ask if they can do their real college,” Gaudelli said. “So I always let guys redo them.” He often gets emails from fans about the introductions, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. “There’s hardly ever anything in entertainment that is universally liked, that you don’t get complaints about even if you think it’s great,” he said. “This is the one thing we never receive complaints about and we always get praise for.” He does, however, get the same question repeatedly. “I’ve gotten emails from the fans before asking me if I make the NFL wait for the lineups to end to snap the ball,” he said. “I’ve got that email quite a bit, and I laugh. I wish. No, I’m just trying to get it in there in between plays.”

Goodell appoints Tagliabue to hear player appeals in bounty case NEW YORK (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell appointed predecessor Paul Tagliabue to hear the appeals of four players suspended in the Saints’ bounty scandal. Goodell said Friday he notified Jonathan Vilma, Will Smith, Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove, as well as the players’ union, that Tagliabue would be the hearing officer to “decide the appeals and bring the matter to a prompt and fair conclusion.” The union and the four players had asked Goodell to recuse himself, contending he could not fairly rule. Their second set of appeals will be heard Oct. 30. “Any time we move towards a fair evaluation of the evidence it is a positive development,” said Peter Ginsberg, Vilma’s attorney. “Commissioner Goodell’s belated recognition that he cannot possibly serve as an impartial and unbiased arbitrator is certainly a positive development. And we have enormous respect for Paul Tagliabue. “Having said that, we

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, left, has appointed his predecessor, Paul Tagliabue, right, to hear the appeals of four players suspended in the New Orleans Saints bounties scandal. now need to learn whether Commissioner Tagliabue plans to provide to us the fundamental rights that Commissioner Goodell ignored, including the right to examine the accusers and to see the evidence, and also we need to consider that Commissioner

Tagliabue is counsel to the law firm representing Commissioner Goodell in Jonathan’s defamation lawsuit, as well as representing the NFL in Jonathan’s challenge to the entire process in this matter.” Vilma was suspended for the 2012 season and

Smith was banned four games for his role in the bounties program. Fujita, now with the Browns, was barred three games, since reduced to one. Hargrove is a free agent whose suspension was reduced from eight games to seven. “I have held two hearings to date and have modified the discipline in several respects based on my recent meetings with the players,” Goodell said. “I will have no role in the upcoming hearings or in Mr. Tagliabue’s decisions.” “Paul Tagliabue is a genuine football authority whose tenure as commissioner was marked by his thorough and judicious approach to all matters,” he added. “He has many years of experience in NFL collective bargaining matters and an impeccable reputation for integrity.” Tagliabue was NFL commissioner from 1989-2006 and is a lawyer. For part of that time, Goodell was the league’s general counsel. Goodell said he consulted with NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith

before asking Tagliabue to hear these appeals. The collective bargaining agreement with the union that was reached to end the lockout in August 2011 gave Goodell exclusive authority to hear appeals of discipline for conduct detrimental or to appoint someone to hear and decide an appeal. Goodell periodically has appointed others to hear appeals for club fines, personal conduct suspensions and for matters concerning drug and steroid policy. “To be clear, I have not consulted with Paul Tagliabue at any point about the Saints’ matter, nor has he been any part of the process,” Goodell said. “Furthermore, under our process the hearing officer has full authority and complete independence to decide the appeal and determine any procedural issues regarding the hearings.” Goodell handed down the suspension in May and they took effect in July after initial appeals were rejected by Goodell. Those suspensions lasted through

training camp before being vacated by a three-member appeals panel that instructed Goodell to start the disciplinary process again and clarify his reasons for suspending the players. The suspensions were reissued by the NFL last week and promptly appealed by all four players. None of the suspensions is currently in effect because they were appealed within the framework of the NFL’s labor agreement. But all four players have asked U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan to throw out Goodell’s disciplinary rulings on the grounds he has demonstrated bias against the players in his handling the bounty investigation. The players say Goodell violated due process rights. In a recent court filing, the union said: “It is only a neutral (arbitrator) of unquestioned integrity who can restore public confidence in this process and mitigate the damage which the NFL’s handling of ‘bounty-gate’ has inflicted upon the game.”

NLCS: Giants still alive, thanks to Zito’s pitching against Cardinals Continued from Page D1

Lynn, an 18-game winner his first year in the rotation, failed to make it out of the fourth for the second time in the series. The Cardinals are seeking consecutive pennants for the first time since 1967-68, and trying to advance for the second year in a row as a wild-card entry. One more win would set up a rematch of the 2006 World Series against the Tigers, which the Cardinals took in five games. Lynn struck out five of the first 10 batters, sailing through the first three innings with no balls hit out of the infield. His undoing was a wild throw off the second-base bag attempting to get a forceout on a comebacker that paved the way for San Francisco’s four-run fourth. The Giants had runners on first and second with one out when Lynn gloved a tapper by Hunter Pence, wheeled and waited a bit while rookie shortstop Pete Kozma hustled to second. But Lynn threw a low dart off the bag with the ball bounding into

shallow right field and Marco Scutaro scoring without a play from second. Eighth-place hitter Brandon Crawford singled up the middle with the bases loaded on a

full count with two outs as Lynn just missed with a kick save for two more runs. Zito, who has just 30 career hits in 310 atbats in the regular season with no extra-base hits and nine RBIs, laid

down a perfect bunt for a fourth run. Lynn has allowed four runs both of his NLCS starts, although all four were unearned in Game 5. Zito’s only trouble

came in the second when Yadier Molina and David Freese, both swinging on the first pitch, opened the inning with a single and double. Lynn, a career .056 hitter including the postseason,

K-State cautious heading into game with Mountaineers By ARNE GREEN

Special to The Telegram

Tempting as it might be to check out Texas Tech’s victory over West Virginia last week, scribble down some notes and call it good, Bill Snyder isn’t taking the bait. Tech may have offered Kansas State a few tips on how to take down the high-octane Mountaineers, but the Wildcats have their own template for success. “We don’t attempt to go out and take things from one game to the next,” said Snyder, whose No. 4-ranked Wildcats go on the road to Morgantown, W.Va., to face No. 17 West Virginia at 6:05 tonight at Milan Puskar Stadium. “We have to view all the ballgames that they’ve played and find what it is in our system that would fit in our preparation for West Virginia or any other opponent that we play.” In other words, the Wildcats aren’t likely to challenge West Virginia and quarterback Geno Smith to a shootout, despite the Mountaineers’ No. 114 national ranking in total defense. While they’d love to duplicate Tech’s defensive performance in the 49-14 rout at Lubbock, they’re more inclined to do it with ball control and time of possession. “It’s not a matter of taking things,” Snyder

said. “Now there might be philosophical thoughts in regards to how you defend Geno Smith or how you function in special teams or offense that you might tend to say with our schemes we can philosophically do something similar to what may have been done.” While Texas Tech threw for over 500 yards against a West Virginia offense that allows 364 yards a game through the air, K-State ranks 108th nationally and last in the Big 12 in passing with a 179-yard average. But the Wildcats are 11th nationally in rushing at 248.5 yards and could help their defense significantly by controlling the ball. “We are going to have to control the clock (and) play defense with a good offense, which is kind of our game,” fullback Braden Wilson said of the offense, which features two of the league’s top rushers in John Hubert and quarterback Collin Klein. “We just have to make sure to go out and do what we do best.” Snyder isn’t convinced that running the ball will be enough against a West Virginia unit that allows 131.3 yards a game on the ground but clearly is vulnerable defending the pass. “What’s important to us is for that to happen

It will be a battle of Heisman Trophy-contending quarterbacks in Morgantown, W. Va., today when the Mountaineers’ Geno Smith, above, takes on Collin Klein and the Wildcats. we have to be a well-balanced offense,” Snyder said. “If we become onesided in our approach then it makes it that much more complex for us and that

much easier for the opponent.” Even if they take time off the clock, they must either finish their drives or at least create a field

position advantage, something they did successfully in last week’s 27-21 victory at Iowa State. The other part of the equation, and easily the trickiest, is keeping West Virginia off the board. The Mountaineers are sixth nationally in total offense with 543.7 yards a game and third in passing at 384.8. Smith, the early-season Heisman Trophy favorite has completed 75 percent of his passes for 2,271 yards and 25 touchdowns without an interception. Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey also rank atop the league receiving charges with 67 and 55 catches respectively, both with over 125 yards a game and 22 touchdown grabs between them. “Geno Smith is one of the best quarterbacks in the NCAA and does a lot of great things,” said K-State strong safety Jarard Milo. “They have a great receiving corps and (Smith) is like the next RG3 (Robert Griffin III) of college football. “It will be a great challenge for us to go down to Morgantown and be able to play against him and his team.” The Wildcats have been solid defensively all season, ranking 31st nationally overall and allowing 339.7 yards per game. But if they have a vulnerability it is against the pass,

where they are No. 74. Still the defense has been able to mask its deficiencies with a bend-don’tbreak philosophy that has yielded just 12 plays of 20plus yards and three of 40 or more. The Wildcats also rank seventh nationally in turnover margin at plus10. “We’re fine with it, because in reality it’s going to take a lot of really short passes to beat you,” senior cornerback Nigel Malone said of the approach, which has helped the Wildcats rank 19th nationally in scoring defense (16.5 points). “So if we can just keep them out of the end zone and no points or at least a field goal, we’re comfortable that our offense will go out there and score points.” The Wildcats have not been as dominant in time of possession this season, in part because the offense has been more efficient. But Snyder would still like to see them control the clock against West Virginia – with one caveat. “If you keep them out of the end zone and off the field, that’s a real positive thing,” he said. “If they’re scoring a mile a minute, then … “It’s good in either account, I guess. I don’t want them scoring at seven points a minute either, and they are very capable of doing it.”

No. 10 Oklahoma aims for more vs. Kansas, after Texas blowout NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — At Oklahoma, there’s no feeling quite like plopping the Golden Hat trophy on your head and walking off the Cotton Bowl field with a victory against rival Texas in hand. Even so, the 10th-ranked Sooners (4-1, 2-1 Big 12) know it can get much better than that. When Bob Stoops has his teams playing at their best, a Red River Rivalry win often means there’s a championship in store when the end of the season comes. It didn’t happen that way after last year’s Red River Rivalry blowout, with the Sooners scuffling through a win at Kansas that foreshadowed three losses in the second half of the season. They want to reverse that trend when the last-place Jayhawks (1-5, 0-3) visit Norman on Saturday night after this year’s Red River rout. “This year, we’re not just peaking. We’re going to continue to work,” safety Javon Harris said. “We’re not going to stop doing what we’ve been doing. “I don’t think that we’re done. We’re really just getting started.” Under Stoops, the Sooners have never suffered enough of a letdown after the emotional Texas game to lose

says about them. “Hopefully our guys will do that, continue to improve in the areas we feel we can and keep pushing for more. The mature teams do that.” Part of that maturity will be require keeping the same standard of preparation for Kansas, which has lost 15 straight conference games and 26 of its last 27, even with No. 5 Notre Dame next on the schedule. The Jayhawks have been pulling out all the stops to Associated Press

After being pulled last week, KU quarterback Dayne Crist (10) might not start vs. Oklahoma. their next time out. They’re a perfect 13-0, including five wins against Kansas. But last season, the 55-17 blowout of the Longhorns ended up being the high point of the season. Losses to Texas Tech, Baylor and Oklahoma State spoiled a promising start and Oklahoma settled for a trip to the Insight Bowl after holding the preseason No. 1 ranking. “You can look back on that and just learn from your mistakes and learn that one game doesn’t determine your season,” quarterback Landry Jones said. “Each game will determine where you want to go at the end of the year.” The Sooners provided a

strong response after losing to Kansas State last month, bouncing back with consecutive wins against Texas Tech and Texas. Now, they’re dealing with the return of high expectations and even talk that the national championship could be a possibility if a handful of teams lose. But will that atmosphere have an adverse effect? “I don’t know,” Stoops said. “I guess it all depends on the team or the person. In the end, it shouldn’t. Hopefully when you have a mature team, they understand what they’re doing correct, they understand what they’re not doing as well as they should, regardless of what anyone else

stay competitive in games, faking punts and field goals and last week replacing starting quarterback Dayne Crist with redshirt freshman Michael Cummings. With Cummings taking the snaps, Kansas scored 14 straight points and had the ball with the chance to take the lead late in a 20-14 loss to Oklahoma State. First-year coach Charlie Weis wouldn’t say who would start against Oklahoma.

“Dayne’s a competitor,” quarterbacks coach Ron Powlus said. “He wants to play. He doesn’t want to come off the field. If he’s not on the field, he’ll be supportive, he’ll be engaged which he was on Saturday - and anything other than that, I would be disappointed if that was the case.” “There is a drastic difference between Dayne and Michael, there’s no doubt about it, but Michael has come a long way.”

How to stay smart when thinking pink Banana Boat recalls By ROBERTA NAMEE

Better Business Bureau of Kansas

O

ctober, as everyone must surely know by now, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Store shelves have blossomed with pink as product after product promises to help the cause if you will only give them your shopping dollars. The popularity of pink products is not limited to October, of course. Throughout the year we are seeing more and more of the trend toward using pink as a marketing tool to lure customers. The Better Business Bureau advises consumers that some of those products that adorn themselves with pink may be only providing very limited help to the fight against breast cancer. Some of them promise significant donations to breast cancer charities and some of them do not.

What does the ribbon mean? If you are interested in being sure that your money

will go to this very worthy cause, the BBB urges you to become acquainted with which products are more likely to be donating to that cause, and which are just using the pink-ribbon craze to increase their sales. Products as diverse as duct tape, fried chicken buckets, airplanes and handguns have trumpeted their pink appeal to consumers. Some of these products clearly state the amount they are contributing to charities on their packaging. The BBB endorses this method to properly inform consumers who are interested in supporting the cause. Other products, however, make very vague claims. Some even require the consumer to mail in proof of purchase before they will donate to breast cancer charities. Consumers should remember that the pink ribbon symbol is not regulated by any agency and does not necessarily mean that product combats breast cancer. Some products simply use the pink ribbon to indicate that they are “healthy” and that they aren’t associated with breast cancer as a

contributing cause. Some natural health and beauty products fall within this category. Still other companies might put the pink ribbon on their product to signify that that company supports the breast cancer cause, even if their contribution is not tied to the sales of the item bearing the pink ribbon emblem. One example of that was back in 2010 when a shoe company sold pink ribbon clogs. While customers may have thought their purchase was furthering the cause, the company had made a set donation of $25,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The purchase of the shoes did not increase the size of the donation. Some companies put an arbitrary cap on their donation to the breast cancer cause. Though proceeds from the sales of the item may go to that cause, once the cap is reached the donation stops. There is no mechanism for informing the consumer that their purchase happened after that fact. The consumer’s purchase does not go toward the company’s

donation. A major athletic shoe company in 2010 set a limit on their donations to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade of $750,000, and didn’t let their customers know. Customers were led to believe that a portion of that shoe’s sales helped the cause. The truth is, after the limit was reached, sales did not contribute to the fund. Here are the Better Business Bureau’s tips for responsible pink-ribbon shopping: • Inspect the product for information to see if the label tells how much of sales to the charity, or specifically where it does go. • Check their website. The product packaging usually gives the website address and the information about charitable giving may be there. • Call the company and ask for the information. • Contact the charity and ask if they are receiving money from that company. • Check out the charity on the Better Business Bureau’s website. Contact the BBB by calling (800) 856-2417 or visit www.kansasplains.bbb.org.

lotion due to fire risk WA S H I N G T O N (AP) — The maker of Banana Boat sunscreen is recalling some halfmillion bottles of sprayon lotion after reports that a handful of people have caught on fire after applying the product and coming in contact with an open flame. Energizer Holdings said Friday that it is pulling 23 varieties of UltraMist sunscreen off store shelves due to the risk of the lotion igniting when exposed to fire. The recall includes aerosol products like UltraMist Sport, UltraMist Ultra Defense and UltraMist Kids. A company spokesman said there have been five reports of people suffering burns after using the sunscreen in the last year. Four burn cases were reported in the U.S. and one in Canada. More than 20 million units have been sold since UltraMist

launched in 2010, the spokesman said. T he problem appears to be caused by UltraMist’s spray valve, which is over applying the product, Energizer said in a statement. As a result the lotion is taking longer to dry, which raises the flammability risk. “If a consumer comes into contact with a flame or spark prior to complete drying of the product on the skin, there is a potential for the product to ignite,” the company said. UltraMist’s label warns users: “Keep away from sources of ignition — no smoking.” But dermatologists say most people don’t read such labels. “So many people put this on outside, while they’re on their way to activities, so I just don’t think people are aware of that,” said Dr. Michele Green, a dermatologist at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital.

Business Briefs AT&T invests in Kansas In the first half of 2012, AT&T invested nearly $75 million in its Kansas wireless and wired networks, according to a release from the company. Network upgrades include activation of new cell sites or towers to improve network coverage, deploying faster connections to enable 4G speeds, and adding spectrum capacity to support additional traffic. First-half upgrade highlights include: • The launch of 4G LTE service in Wichita, which allows customers to stream, download, upload and game faster than ever before. • The launch of AT&T U-verse Services in Ottawa, which expanded our footprint of available cutting-edge TV, Internet and voices services to more than 540,000 households in and around Kansas City, Wichita and Topeka. • The enhancement of numerous wireless Internet cell sites and addition of network capacity in various locations across the state, which is like adding lanes to a highway, to lessen congestion and maintain the flow of data. AT&T network upgrades in Kansas also include deployment of new Wi-Fi hot spots and backbone network connections. “When companies like AT&T invest in their network infrastructure, Kansas wins,” Sen. Mike Petersen, vice chairman of the Kansas Senate Utilities Committee, said. “AT&T’s ongoing commitment to our state will help keep Kansas and its businesses connected — and competitive — in an increasingly fast-paced global economy.”

City’s Jucan earns recognition In recognition of her contributions promoting professionalism, pride and high ideals among those working in the wastewater analysis field, Garden City Laboratory Chemist Anca Jucan recently was inducted into the Kansas Water Environment Association’s Crystal Crucible Society. Heath Horyna, environmental scientist with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, presented Jucan with the recognition during the Oct. 2 Garden City Commission meeting. “This is a very special award because the person who nominated your employee was from the state of Kansas; it was a state agency nomination,” Horyna told the commissioners. Jucan, a native of Romania, graduated with a master’s degree in pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania. For 10 years, she was employed in the areas of retail and hospital pharmacy before moving to the United States. In 1991, Jucan settled in Sublette, with her husband, Florentin, a self-employed businessman, and her two children, Ruxandra and Dan. Jucan began her first job in the United States in 1994 with Iowa Beef Processors, Inc., working in the laboratory. In 1997, she was hired by the City of Garden City to work in the laboratory at the Wastewater Treatment Facility, where she acquired and maintains certification as a Class III Wastewater Analyst. “We are all extremely proud of Anca and very fortunate to have her in our organization,” Public Utilities Director Mike Muirhead said. In addition to her duties in the wastewater lab, Jucan also conducts drinking water tests for the City’s water division and for other private property owners within the community. “Thank you very much, I am so flattered,” Jucan said. “I am going to try to keep up the good work. I know what I do; I’m proud of what I do. The analyses do come out just right. I pass my tests, and I am going to keep it up.”

THE GARDEN CITY TELEGRAM

Scott City Pamida to reopen as Shopko Hometown By DEREK THOMPSON

dthompson@gctelegram.com

A prominent retail store in Scott City soon will be operating under a different banner. Starting Sunday, the 4year-old Pamida store will begin the transition into a Shopko Hometown store. Today is Pamidaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last day of operations. The store will be closed until Oct. 28, when it reopens under the new company. A grand opening ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 29. Shopko Hometown will offer shoppers a greater breadth and depth of product selection than was previously carried by Pamida, Shopko spokeswoman Tara Powers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be much more to choose from in both the apparel and home departments. There will also be more national brands available than before, including brands like Gloria Vanderbilt, Sony, Nike, Graco, Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, T-Fal, etc. In addition, there will be more high quality pri-

So the product categories will be the same, but there will be more selection,â&#x20AC;? Powers said. As a community that â&#x20AC;&#x153;does not have a plethora of soft goods available,â&#x20AC;? the store will be a

welcomed addition, Scott City Area Chamber of Commerce Director Katie Eisenhour said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The neat thing for us is that Shopko Hometown might more resemble a Target, to give just a bit of familiarity to what

folks might experience. It will not be a low-end discount store. It will be more like a department store of sorts,â&#x20AC;? Eisenhour said. Eisenhour said there is a buzz around the community in anticipation of

the new store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very excited, and I think the region, you know our neighboring communities, are, too, because while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful everything that Garden City has to offer, we think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice that maybe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to give our local people a choice,â&#x20AC;? Eisenhour said. Eisenhour gave the example that sometimes it can be hard for women in Scott City to find a pair of pantyhose, and if they do, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much room to be picky. Shopko Hometown will help alleviate that kind of struggle, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing for our community. We love to be able to offer people choices here, and in this town of 4,000, we kind of are demanding that way. We have a Dollar General, we have Alco and we had Pamida. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want less than that, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m grateful that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re staying. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be exciting,â&#x20AC;? Eisenhour said. The merger between Pamida and Shopko was

finalized earlier this year. According to a release from Shopko, the joint effort creates â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the largest U.S. retailers focused on serving smaller, rural communities.â&#x20AC;? There will not be any structural changes to the building, located at 1702 Main St. on the southern edge of Scott City, according to Powers. The Shopko Hometown retail format, developed over the past three years to augment Shopkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s larger store model, offers a differentiated and financially successful merchandising strategy, the release said. More than 120 Pamida stores in the Midwest have been converted to the Shopko Hometown concept, Powers said, adding that the response from shoppers has been positive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They appreciate the expanded product selection, the new brands, the fresh, updated look and feel of the store, all combined with the same great value and service they received from Pamida,â&#x20AC;? Powers said.

American State Bank of Great Bend to buy Holcomb bank By The Telegram First National Bank of Holcomb is changing hands following its purchase by American State Bancshares, Inc., of Great Bend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a short list of prospects that we contacted to see if they had an interest in purchasing our bank,â&#x20AC;? Paul Pfeifer, Holcomb bank president, said in a release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our ownership group isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting any younger, and we felt it was time to let the next generation take over. This decision will be good for our customers and employees.â&#x20AC;? The transaction is pending regulatory approval, but is expected to take place before the end of the

year. American State Bank currently has a bank in Garden City, located at 1901 E. Mary St. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This acquisition will increase our presence in the Garden City market and fits well with our strategic direction,â&#x20AC;? Don LacKamp, American State president and CEO, said. LacKamp said the acquisition will provide additional penetration into the market share, and also provide diversity in the customer base. American State is a Kansas banking company that has three other bank charters and 14 locations in central and western Kansas. Assets total more than $650 million, and locations include Belleville,

Concordia, Clyde, Great Bend, Larned, St. John, Macksville, Garden City, Rose Hill, Augusta and Wichita. The acquisition will mean expanded financial services for customers of the 401 North Henderson St. bank in Holcomb, LacKamp said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They should see an improvement in the financial services because with the size and scale of our company, we can afford to provide services that typically many smaller banks canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? the Great Bend banker said. Those services will include higher lending limits, remote deposit capture and additional treasury management services.

Early look at Windows 8 baffles consumers NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The release of Microsoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Windows 8 operating system is a week away, and consumers are in for a shock. Windows, used in one form or another for a generation, is getting a completely different look that will force users to learn new ways to get things done. Microsoft is making a radical break with the

past to stay relevant in a world where smartphones and tablets have eroded the three-decade dominance of the personal computer. Windows 8 is supposed to tie together Microsoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PC, tablet and phone software with one look. But judging by the reactions of some people who have tried the PC version, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a move that risks confusing and alienating customers.

Tony Roos, an American missionary in Paris, installed a free preview version of Windows 8 on his aging laptop to see if Microsoftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new operating system would make the PC faster and more responsive. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, he said, and he quickly learned that working with the new software requires tossing out a lot of what he knows about Windows.
