As fuel prices rise, so does cost of food Consumers struggle to stretch their dollar. By ANGIE HAFLICH
While fuel prices continue to increase, food prices continue to follow suite. As a result, consumers are having to find ways to stretch their grocery dollars. Economically, a number of factors are at play with rising food prices. The most common tool in determining what percentage Americans as a whole spend on particular items is the consumer price index (CPI). According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, CPI is a measure of the average change over time in prices paid
by urban consumers for a market basket of consumer goods and services. Within the CPI calculation, which according to the bureau was at 3 percent for November 2010 through December 2011, are five categories: food and beverages, housing, apparel, transportation and medical costs. Charles Marcy, economics instructor at Garden City Community College, said that based on the bureau’s CPI calculation between November 2010 and December 2011, there are a couple of categories that stand out in terms of the rise in grocery prices. “In particular, in western Kansas, think about the fuel component that it takes. They have to pay to ship everything out here from Wichita or from
wherever it may be. Even the beef from Tyson gets shipped to Wichita or somewhere with a warehouse, where Dillons buys it and then ships it back to Garden City,” he said. “A good portion of the cost of the groceries we buy is that fuel we use to transport it.” Beef prices are expected to increase this year, due to cattle producers downsizing their herds, which also contributes to the overall CPI of groceries. “The meat, poultry and fish category ... makes up almost 2 percent of the whole CPI,” Marcy said. Meat items alone account for half of that category, at almost 1 percent of the total CPI. “Looking at what’s been hapSee Groceries, Page A5

Conserving water aim of initiative By RACHAEL GRAY
approximately 200 Scott County Hospital staff, with the core medical team consisting of four family practice physicians, four midlevel caregivers and a surgeon who was recently hired specifically to work at the new facility. Surgeries previously were done by traveling physicians. “For a small town, we have a surprisingly large array of services to offer,” Burnett said. Project Superintendent Kenny Giese of Nabholz Construction said the only items left to complete were flooring, some electrical work and the IT infrastructure that the hospital’s network will work from. Giese said the project was great to work on, with very few change orders during construction and no budget issues. He said the people of the community were excellent to work with, and that he was happy with his team and how the building turned out. “I’m tickled with the building,” Giese said. “Got a great project and a great team.” Burnett said he was pleased
Kansas farmers and producers can now apply for the Ogallala Aquifer Initiative and receive funding for water conservation from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service. The deadline to be considered for fiscal year 2012 funds is Feb. 24. The NRCS will fund this initiative through its Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). Much of the High Plains region relies on the Ogallala for water but the resource is being depleted due to widespread irrigation use in the High Plains states. The Ogallala Aquifer, also known as the High Plains Aquifer, is a vast but shallow underground water table aquifer located beneath the Great Plains in the United States. It is one of the world’s largest aquifers and covers an area that includes portions of eight states: Colorado, South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas. Amanda Shaw, supervisory district conservationist for the local NRCS division, said the funding is available for farmers and producers who engage in water-conservation practices such as switching from irrigated crops to dryland crops and converting flood irrigation system to center-pivot irrigation systems. “Those are the primarily the practices in this area,” she said. She said the land has to be agricultural land or land used for livestock production that produces at least $1,000 of agriculture products within the year. Financial assistance is available through the OAI for producers considering converting from irrigated cropland to dryland cropland, as well as assistance for more efficient irrigation systems and management. All participants must meet EQIP eligibility requirements. In Kansas, socially disadvantaged, limited resource, and beginning farmers and ranchers will receive a higher payment rate for conservation practices related to OAI, according to a release from NRCS.

New Scott City facility nearing completion By JOSEPH JACKMOVICH
SCOTT CITY — The new Scott County Hospital is rapidly approaching completion nearly two months ahead of its construction schedule. The 68,000-square-foot building is estimated to be cleared by the fire marshal for occupancy in mid- or late March, with patients planned to be moved to the new facility on April 9. The original plan had the hospital set for a May 28 completion date. Groundbreaking for the $24 million hospital took place on Aug. 30, 2010. With the hospital currently in its final stages of mostly cosmetic touches, Scott County Hospital President and CEO Mark Burnett said the design was meant to be as efficient and appealing as possible to staff, patients and guests. Hospital staff were deeply involved with the design of the hospital, because Burnett said they know best what kind of layout and design would work. Efficiency was the absolute core of the project, with even

Differences emerge among ‘Paint the Town’ partners By SHAJIA AHMAD
A popular Main Street-centered project, “Paint the Town for the Holidays,” has caused some consternation among the partners involved. The endeavor that started in 2010 is an award-winning partnership between Downtown Vision and dozens of students and their art instructors belonging to the Garden City High School Art Club. But representatives of both parties recently have expressed different ideas about their plans for this upcoming Christmas season. In recent years, the students have taken to Main Street to paint storefront windows with holiday scenes featuring winter themes at participating businesses, both those belonging to the Downtown Vision group and those that are not members. The art teachers who lead the students said this upcoming November, the club would like to focus on the core business district of Main Street and not venture off to some outlying business as they’ve sometimes done in the past. In addition, they’d like to paint as many business — both Downtown Vision members and non-members alike — as possible, as well. “What the art club is trying to focus on is keeping to downtown and celebrating downtown business,” Roy Cessna, an
information officer with USD 457, said Friday. “There’s some Downtown Vision members that are not a part of the core business district, and I think what the art club wants to do is promote the great things that are happening downtown ... It’s also a great way to show off the kids’ artwork as you travel down Main.” Danielle Falor and Andrea Kirchoff, art teachers at the high school, agreed with Cessna. The pair of art teachers said Friday that students previously have spent three school days each November working on the window art, and some of that time has been dedicated to businesses outside the Main Street district area, a move that makes it challenging to supervise the students and will no longer be done. Falor added that details for the next academic year still are being hammered out, but their intention is to get to as many downtown businesses as possible. “What we’ve done in the past has not been a burden on our kids,” Falor said, adding that in years past the young artists have tried to get to as many businesses in and around Main as possible. Beverly Glass, executive director of Downtown Vision, said on Friday the art club and faculty advisors’ plans to paint all downtown business store windows rather than the group’s members only was
news to her. Glass said she agreed with the club representatives that the project should be contained to only businesses in the core downtown district and not in other parts of the town, as the art instructors intend to do, but that she would do her best to convince them to stick with the original intent of the project: decorating the fronts of member shops and offices with holiday-themed images not only as a perk to members but also as an incentive to drive membership into the group. “That’s not their decision to make,” Glass said Friday, referring to the group’s intentions to hit up as many storefronts as possible. “This is a Downtown Vision project. I understand they mean well and want to do everybody’s (storefronts), for the common good ... but it would seriously undermine our relationship,” Glass added. In a letter dated Jan. 20 to Downtown Vision members participating in the Paint the Town project, Glass said the project gives the central business district “added fun, reflects the spirit of the holidays,” and “featured a positive image of two segments of Garden City working together for the greater good.” The Vision director also said that while some art students may have received donations from Main Street retailers for their hard work, the Vision group neither receives
nor gives money to or from the artists. At least 65 businesses participated in the Paint the Town Project in 2010 with paint and brushes donated by many area paint and home improvement stores. Last November, the students painted at least 72 businesses, indicating some spike in interest from downtown merchants to have their storefronts painted with holiday colors for the spirited season. What’s more, the creative work of the students was recognized on a state level. The Paint the Town project won an Excellence in Public/Private Partnerships award from the Kansas Main Street program in October. The award is given in recognition of an outstanding local partnership between Main Street and another organization. At least 23 art students painted holiday scenes and festive borders to add to downtown’s Christmas spirit last November. According to Downtown Vision, the core business area includes Main Street, from Cedar Street to Depot Street; portions of Seventh Street, Eighth Street and Ninth Street that are parallel to Main; and intersecting streets including sections of Garden City Avenue, Spruce Street, Pine Street, Chestnut Street, Fulton Street, and Grant Avenue, all to the east and west of Main Street.
A day in the life of a USD 457 school counselor By RACHAEL GRAY
When three Garden City Public Schools counselors were asked to describe a typical day, they say such a day doesn’t exist. The counselors of USD 457 busy themselves daily with enrollment, academic advising, post-secondary planning, state assessment preparation and personal counseling. Some also do classroom visits and projects with students. Schools celebrated National School Counseling Week this past Monday through Friday. Kae Lee Hogan, Garden City High School counselor, has been a counselor for 19 years. During those nearly two decades Hogan has seen the job of school counselor transform. She said she deals more with academics than she used to, and spends more time with more students. “Before, we waited for kids to come and see us to catch up with them,” she said. “Now we develop a comprehensive program for every student. We want them to be successful before problems arise.” She said counselors now try to monitor grades during the semester instead of waiting to see students’ grades. “We can talk to them and try to get them going in the right direction,” she said. In her 19 years as counselor; Hogan said most of the problems teens face haven’t changed. She said a lot of students come to her to talk about problems they face with friends and parents. She said bullying is something she deals with at the high school, and she believes students are better about not bullying and excluding each other than they used to be. “The kids at Garden City High School are pretty nice to each other. It’s a big high school, so there’s different activities and different groups of kids. There’s something for everyone. At this high school we can all exist together,” she said. Hogan is one of six high school counselors. At Abe Hubert Middle School on Thursday, Mary Guymon was busy running back and forth between St. Dominic Catholic School and St. Mary Catholic School, working with students and parents on enrollment for the fall. Hogan has been a counselor for eight years at AHMS and has been working in the district

Hogan’s job has three components: career, social/emotional and academic. What she likes the most about her job is that no day is the same and the subjects counselors deal with are always changing. “I like all parts of my job. One thing is that it’s constantly changing,” she said. “A day is never set — there’s always a variety of things happening.” She said the job changes from year to year, as well. “This year, the sixth-graders wanted to know about texting and if we allow it at AHMS. Well, we don’t allow texting. But a few years ago, it was about whether they could chew gum. Now it’s all about the technology age. You can see how that changes over time,” she said. One of the ways in which technology is changing her job is now she addresses cyber-bullying and teaches lessons about it to students. “We have to make sure we’re up to date with that,” she said. Sheila Patchin, school counselor at Bernadine Sitts Intermediate Center, said she deals more with student issues instead of academics at that level, but still provides academic advising. Patchin helped create a student council, which combines
with the Leadership Club as a way to give younger students more responsibility and activity. In her nine years as counselor, she said, student issues have changed and many have to do with technology or familial structures. “I think children have exposure to more information and more experiences — things that they used to not have been exposed to until much later in life,” she said. Patchin said technology plays a big role in that because students have access to information via the Internet and cell phones 24 hours a day. “A lot of the children aren’t monitored or have their cell phones with them all night,” she said. “They stay connected 24 hours a day.” She said technology is wonderful in opening the door to more information but also can be harmful. Patchin said cyberbullying is an example. “Bullying hasn’t changed much over the years, but we’re talking about it more. And a lot of students don’t understand the harm in sharing information like photos and videos on the Internet — those spread like wildfire,” she said. Patchin said children are growing up faster than they used to and often take care of each other while parents are at
work. Some parents work opposite shifts, leaving children to look after each other. “Most children say they want to spend more time with their parents,” she said. Patchin also said children are dealing with familial issues at younger ages because some students deal with family members being in the court system because of alcohol or drugs. The best part of Patchin’s job, she said, is being a familiar face students can come to with problems. “The best part is when I go down the halls and students greet me. I don’t have classes with them and don’t work with them daily, but they still greet me. That means a lot,” she said. In November 2011, USD 457 counselors received the 2011 Kansas School Counseling Standard of Excellence Award from the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) for the district’s Comprehensive Counseling Program Guide. The award honored the district for achieving excellence in the area of school counseling. KSDE honored 17 schools at the Annual Fall Counselor Conference at Emporia State University last November. The district was the only one to receive the award — the others recognized were individual schools.

COMMENTARY LEONARD PITTS Miami Herald Dena Sattler, Editor/publisher
Public faith vs. private faith
Local award puts spotlight on many difference-makers.
ast year, a local organization took on the challenge of choosing an outstanding leader in nonprofit endeavors. It was a lofty task in a community that sees countless examples of excellent leadership at work every day for the many nonprofit agencies called on to serve Finney County. Which nonprofit organiFrom orgazations do the most to improve Finney County? nizations that Add your comments at aid children — the end of the online verBig Brothers sion of this editorial at Big Sisters GCTelegram.com/opinion. of Finney and Kearny Counties, for example — to a resource for older residents in the Senior Center of Finney County, nonprofit agencies help people of all ages. And those missions have become all the more difficult in the midst of ongoing financial challenges. With that in mind, High Plains Grant Makers crafted the Non-Profit Leader Award to honor local individuals who have a significant impact on their organization and community. Consisting of representatives of the granting organizations Western Kansas Community Foundation, Finnup Foundation, Kemper Foundation and the Finney County United Way, High Plains Grant Makers provides resources to help meet needs of nonprofit agencies that don’t always have funds to travel for workshops on grant writing and other vital areas. The organization is moving forward again this year with the Non-Profit Leader Award, which includes $2,500 to be used for professional development — a significant sum at a time state budget cuts and other setbacks have made dollars tight for so many nonprofit agencies. Award nominees must work or volunteer extensively with a 501(c)3 organization in Finney County and be at least 18 years old. An online application for nominations is available at highplainsgrantmakers.org. Or, call (620) 276-3032 for more information. Not surprisingly, the High Plains Grant Makers fielded an impressive number of strong nominations last year. John Hogg, executive director of Santa Fe Trail Council Boy Scouts of America, eventually was named winner of the Non-Profit Leader Award. Hogg was one of 15 nominated for the award — a who’s who of people who make a difference every day through their jobs and volunteer efforts. Expect another crowded field of outstanding nominees this time around in a community that depends on many caring individuals to do the good work of nonprofit agencies.

Baby boomers smitten with JFK J
ohn F. Kennedy is the man whose picturesque presidency launched a thousand coffee-table books. When the late conservative writer William F. Buckley was asked to explain Kennedy’s enduring appeal, he said, “His sheer beauty.” Mimi Alford’s account of life at the White House as a 19-year-old intern who caught the president’s eye is a vividly personal portrayal of the ugliness behind the alluring images. Alford’s belated tell-all, “Once Upon a Secret,” should be assigned in women’s studies classes as an illustration of the power imbalances in employer-employee sexual liaisons, especially those involving commanders in chief and their interns. It’s not news that JFK had an, ahem, active personal life. But a certain romance has attached to it. Marilyn Monroe’s famously breathy rendition of “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” is redolent of knowing, sophisticated fun, of adults in on a seductive secret. The reality wasn’t as magical. Within her first week as an intern, JFK’s friend and procurer Dave Powers invited her to a midday swim with the president and some of the gals from the secretarial pool. At the end of the day, the rising sophomore at Wheaton College was invited to a gettogether in the family residence. She was plied with daiquiris, then the president peeled her away from the group with an invitation to a private tour of the residence. Alford lost her virginity
on the fashionably elegant Mrs. Kennedy’s bed. “I wouldn’t describe what happened that night as making love,” Alford writes. “But I wouldn’t call it nonconsensual, either.” That double negative captures the entire relationship, if that’s not too glorified a word. Alford says she was thrilled by JFK’s attentions, it made her feel “special.” He was playful and gentle with her, supposedly called her at school, and opened up a world of power and glamour unimaginable to the average college senior, let alone a sophomore. Ultimately, though, she was a plaything at the sultan’s court. He never kissed her. Once, as she was smuggled along on a trip with JFK, Dave Powers made her sit on the floor of his car to hide from the White House staff — unsuccessfully. During a White House swim, she says, JFK commanded her to perform oral sex on Powers, and, to her humiliation, she complied. Later, he prodded her to do the same for his “baby brother,” Teddy. No one can confirm what happened in JFK’s pool so many decades later. But as The New Republic’s Timothy Noah notes, “The likelihood that Alford is making this story up is extremely remote.” Alford didn’t write her book until she was outed
by a JFK biographer and an enterprising journalist. If the broad outlines of her book accord with what we already knew about JFK, the details suggest he wasn’t just a standard-issue womanizer but a loathsome creep. For Kennedy worshipers, this is out-weighed by ... what? By the fact that he was their first political love. By his martyrdom. And by “his sheer beauty.” MSNBC host and author Chris Matthews, who is all too willing to perform the journalistic and historical equivalent of Mimi Alford’s services, is the perfect archetype of the baby boomer who started out smitten by Kennedy and has never stopped. He calls his recent hagiography “Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero.” The search for what it is in JFK’s record that justifies the adulation is just as elusive. Ordinarily liberals wouldn’t be so forgiving of a president who was cautious on civil rights, whose administration surveilled Martin Luther King Jr., who began our involvement in the Vietnam War. According to Alford, JFK was obsessed with his hair. He let her administer his daily hair treatment, insisting on products only from Frances Fox and on a brush, not a comb. When they broke up after she got engaged, he gave her gold-and-diamond pins — and a photograph of himself, at the helm of the yacht Manitou. It’s a terrific photo, of a man who was a handsome lie.

Seeking a little more passion I
t seems to me that what is missing in the top two contenders for the Republican presidential nomination is passion. While Ron Paul speaks with passion of the Federal Reserve and Rick Santorum speaks with passion about life, Newt Gingrich speaks passionately mostly about Mitt Romney; and Mitt, it seems, merely speaks in sound bites. I don’t know about you, but I want to see them seek to build their own shining city on a hill such as that my dad envisioned, and not simply attempt to recreate that vision and make it their own. I want them to stop speaking merely in sound bites, but rather to speak to me in parables to which I can relate. I want to feel their speeches, not just hear them. It needs to be more than “I’m not Mitt,” or “I can beat Obama.” I want them to convince me they really mean what they say, not what they think I want to hear. If indeed Newt and Mitt can find the passion of Rick Santorum, and even that of my dad, they will go a long way towards winning not
only the Republican nomination, but also the presidency itself. As many readers know, I have endorsed Newt and traveled with him on the campaign trail as a private citizen, but he can do better in this respect. We Americans prefer to hear the real truth, not what politicians want us to hear. In the era of Barack Obama the message we hear from Washington is, “Trust me, we know what is good for you.” That’s the message of tyrants, as many who lived under Hitler and Mussolini discovered as they were herded into concentration camps. In those dreadful times, Germans, Italians and others under their rule were fed slogans such as those seen on signs above the entrances of concentration camps: “Arbeit Makt Frei — Work Makes Freedom.” To the Nazis and Fascists, freedom and death and work and slavery were conflated with respect to
individuals; all that mattered was the state. One of the early signs of an incoming dictatorship is a government’s attack on the Christian church. Tragically, we are beginning to see something like that now, in the Army’s attempt to censor chaplains — to tell them what they can or cannot say in their sermons. The government in this case appears to believe that it is superior to any religion — that it is entitled to overrule the doctrines of faith by which all legitimate religious organizations live. We must, in their view, submit our articles of faith for government review and tolerance. Accept this and bid freedom of religion farewell. Let’s find the passion to make Obama a one-term president.

eally? Seriously? In the history of pro sports, men have done all sorts of things to commemorate their feats on the field or the court. They have flopped like seals, walked like gorillas, head-butted like bighorn sheep. They have high-fived, low-fived, dog-piled, chestbumped, wept, kissed their own biceps. They have breakdanced, riverdanced, jitterbugged and otherwise tripped the light fantastic. Yet Tim Tebow becomes a figure of national fascination, consternation and controversy because he takes a knee and bows his head in a gesture of Christian faith? The latest example of the enduring interest in that ritual came Saturday on the “NFL Honors” program on NBC as host Alec Baldwin imitated the quarterback’s signature pose. Baldwin’s mimicry was a gentle poke in the ribs — Tebow, who was in the audience, even came onstage to help him get it right — but not all the commentary has been so mild. Many of the professionally snide — like “Comedy Central’s” Daniel Tosh, and the inexplicably self-satisfied Bill Maher — have been notably vicious in their lambasting of the Denver Broncos playmaker. (“Jesus just — expletive — Tim Tebow bad,” tweeted Maher after a Broncos loss.) It is amusing to imagine the outrage those same folks would (rightly) spew if some Muslim player were attacked by the Christian right for genuflecting to Allah during the game. Many in this country — perhaps more accurately, many in the media — seem nonplussed and discomfited by any expression of faith. Penis jokes are fine and grisly violence is still as American as apple pie, but God talk makes people nervous. That speaks volumes. Of course, there is another side to that state of affairs. Take this neither as criticism of Tim Tebow nor as exoneration of Bill Maher, but organized religion bears some onus for that hypocrisy. To the degree faith is seen as synonymous with the aforementioned Christian right, it becomes a thing to be brayed by conservative extremists for political gain. It becomes a crowd gathering on courthouse steps to bemoan the removal of a rock bearing the Ten Commandments, becomes a school board trying to use the Book of Genesis in high school science classes, becomes a justification to abuse Muslims and gays. It becomes license for regrettable behavior. Moreover, it becomes a whirl of God talk and God iconography, a cross as fashion statement, a WWJD bracelet, a football player kneeling on the field. But that is faith externalized for public consumption, faith that runs the risk of being shiny and superficial. It doesn’t speak to the decisions we make, the people we are, when despair comes creeping into the midnight hour. Nor does it speak to any obligation toward the scabrous, the lost, the unwashed, the impoverished, the disgusted, the detested, the detestable. Indeed, those whose faith is most loudly externalized are often the ones most conspicuously silent on that obligation. Reputation, it is said, is about who you are when people are watching; character is about who you are when you are alone in the room. There is a similar duality in modern faith, a tension between faith externalized for public consumption and that which wrestles despair in the midnight hour. Each has its place. But only one will see you through till the morning comes. ••• NOTE: In a recent column, I announced a giveaway of 50 copies of “The New Jim Crow” by Michelle Alexander.

Groceries: As fuel prices rise, so does cost of food Continued from Page A1
The lobby of the new Scott County Hospital begins to take shape in preparation for an April opening.
Hospital: New facility nears completion Continued from Page A1
with Gieseâ€™s work, calling it a first-class job. The main entrance to the hospital is met with a high ceiling with numerous windows for light and gently curving hallways with natural stone along a portion of one wall. The main hallway leads westward to an open dining area that is open to the public, something Burnett said is somewhat unusual for a small hospital. The dining area is a central feature of the hospital, and Burnett said that if someone loses their way they can get their bearings as long as they know where the dining area is located. A central meeting area near the dining area allows for several configurations, so the room may be broken into two or opening additional seating for people eating. Across the hallway from the dining area is the surgery waiting area, to allow people to grab a quick bite without leaving the waiting area. Inside the waiting area are four pre/post-op rooms, a scoping room and two operating rooms. The operating rooms already were filled with overhead booms, monitors, lights and other equipment.
After construction is completed, two separate teams will give the area a cleaning to make the area completely sterile. â€œWeâ€™re proud of this OR,â€? Burnett said. â€œThis is going to be a whole lot better.â€? Next door to the surgery section are the two delivery rooms, which Burnett said was done for a reason. In continuing with the plan of efficiency, the delivery rooms were placed next to the operating rooms in case something happened during delivery that required urgent medical attention. In between the two delivery rooms is a central storage area, allowing staff to only have to travel a few feet to get needed supplies regardless of what room they are working in at the time. Down the hall is the acute care ward, which is designed as two triangles inside of one another with gently curving hallways. The hallways are curved to discourage the travel of sound, which creates quieter patient rooms. The inner triangle of the ward is for storage and supplies, with the rooms taking up the outer triangle. Each room will have Wi-Fi access and a computer terminal to allow staff to review charts and order tests.
â€œI think this whole building is an interesting design,â€? Burnett said, speaking about the layout of the acute ward. â€œI didnâ€™t want this place to feel like an institution.â€? Next to the acute care ward is the imaging department, which provides services such as X-rays and mammograms. The area doubles as a Federal Emergency Management Agency storm shelter, with heavy double doors making that area of the hospital feel distinctly different from the rest. The administrative offices, which consist of seven offices and a board room, were placed on the periphery of the hospital to allow for future expansion. Burnett said administration is the easiest section to displace, so he wanted it out of the central area so it could be moved more easily if the hospital needs to grow in the future. On the east side of the hospital are the outpatient services, which include the clinic and rehabilitation. Local physicians each will have their own office and separate hallway of exam rooms, making trips between exams simpler. The hospitalâ€™s design as a whole reflects
Aquifer: Conservation the focus of USDA initiative Continued from Page A1
â€œIn Kansas, water quantity and quality is a high priority resource concern under EQIP,â€? said Eric B. Banks, State Conservationist for NRCS in Kansas. â€œThe additional funding will allow the opportunity for agriculture producers to address these concerns, by implementing conservation practices such as irrigation water management, crop rotations, and replacing inefficient gravity irrigation systems.â€?
Burnettâ€™s desire to bring more accommodating service to the hospital experience. He said he wanted to focus on making the facility seem more like a hotel, allowing patients to center on what they can directly appreciate, like the quality of their rooms and food. He said it was all part of the hospitalâ€™s motto, â€œWe treat you like family.â€? Burnett said that most of all he was happy with how the vision he had two years ago was perfectly brought into reality. He said that while the hopital isnâ€™t meant to compete with larger facilities in the area, he intends for the hospital to be top of the line for the population it serves. â€œThe colors are right, the design is right, and the architecture is right,â€? Burnett said. â€œIn the segment we provide, we arenâ€™t going to be second to anyone.â€?
pening with the smallersized cattle herds here in the U.S. over the last year â€” now youâ€™re seeing some of the impact of that,â€? he said. â€œIn addition to the fact that fuel prices have remained high, it isnâ€™t much of a stretch to connect the rise of grocery prices to these two factors.â€? Ironically, for Dillons customers who possess a Dillons fuel card, the higher the grocery bill, the greater possible savings on fuel. Fuel reward points are accumulated each month for customers who possess a fuel card. The card not only provides a discount on featured groceries, but the higher the grocery bill, the more fuel reward points can be accumulated. Carolynn Polk of Garden City said that because her children are grown, she does not frequent the grocery store as much as she used to but that less frequent trips have resulted in larger grocery bills. In some cases, the larger the grocery bill, the greater the overall savings. â€œWhen you shop at Dillons, they send you personal coupons so I had one this morning â€” it was so many dollars off if you spent more than $120 in groceries. The bill this morning was $170, and it ended up being $130,â€? Polk said. Lyn Roth of Garden City has found some other ways to save. â€œMost of the time, I use coupons. But when certain products rise in price, I look for the knockoff or store brands that are cheaper and work just as good, like value brand
stuff at Walmart,â€? she said. Debra Bolton, area extension specialist at the Finney County K-State Research and Extension office, said that their organization helps low-income families stretch their grocery dollars. One suggestion she had for saving on groceries, particularly food, is to cook from scratch. â€œYou might have to invest a little more upfront by purchasing the flour and other ingredients, but itâ€™s not mixed for you, so it doesnâ€™t cost as much. Plus, you can control the amount of fat, sodium and sugar that you put into it â€” so itâ€™s a healthier option too,â€? Bolton said. In the book, â€œSavvy Shopping: How to Reduce Your Weekly Grocery Bill to $85 Per Week â€” or Less,â€? author Toni House has several tips for saving grocery money: â€˘ Be patient. Save pricier purchases for double coupon days. â€˘ Be detail-oriented. How much more will a coupon be worth on double coupon days? â€˘ Plan ahead. Instead of always playing catchup, replacing what youâ€™ve run out of, you only purchase an item when itâ€™s on the menu. â€˘ Instead of making expensive foods (meat) the centerpiece of each meal, design menus that use the most expensive foods less often. â€˘ At the grocery store, buy only what you can eat. â€˘ Grocery store prices for non-food items are higher than youâ€™ll pay almost anywhere else. â€˘ Do use coupons, but only for products you actually need.

Romney and Paul: Not allies but not foes, either PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Mitt Romney and Ron Paul rarely even acknowledge each other in the Republican presidential race, focusing their attention and attacks on rivals Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum instead. That curious detente is being tested in Maine’s caucuses this week, where Romney’s reputation as a political shape shifter is going head-to-head with Paul’s consistent libertarian views. The caucuses began Feb. 4 and will continue today, when the state party will announce the results of the nonbinding presidential straw poll. Paul has campaigned hard in the state, and Romney has taken steps to shore up his position there to offset a potentially embarrassing loss following defeats in Missouri, Colorado and Minnesota. Romney unexpectedly added two caucus appearances to his schedule early today, an indication that the campaign is concerned about the potential of another defeat in the low-turnout affair. And the significance also is great for Paul, who has staked his candidacy on winning at least a handful of smaller caucus states. Santorum, who won the three contests earlier in the week, has not competed actively in Maine, nor has Gingrich. That leaves an unusually direct contest between Romney and Paul, pitting the former Massachusetts governor’s establishment support and geographic advantages against the Texas congress-
man’s relatively small but passionate band of activists. In many ways, the two candidates could not be more different. While Romney has changed positions on a number of important issues including abortion, gay rights and health care policy, Paul has hewed to his small government message since entering Congress in 1978. The Maine face-off also is renewing attention to the persistent deep divisions in the GOP — the more moderate, business-oriented wing represented by Romney and the restless tea party voters who’ve been receptive to much of Paul’s platform. Romney’s aides say they do not view Paul as a threat to winning the nomination. But Romney and his team have also been mindful not to do or say anything that might anger Paul’s loyal supporters. “I think he’s being very careful because he knows how important the Ron Paul voters are — they obviously represent a very different dynamic,” said Mike Dennehy, a former top aide to Republican John McCain’s 2008 campaign. “They are the most passionate and the most frustrated of any voters heading to the polls. And many of them are independents.” To be sure, Romney and Paul do share some similarities. Both have decades-long marriages — Romney and his wife, Ann, have been married for 43 years, while Paul and his wife, Carol, have been wed 55 years. The two couples each have five
In this Jan. 23, 2012 photo, Republican presidential candidates, Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, right, and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney share a laugh during a break in a Republican presidential debate at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Fla. Romney and Paul rarely acknowledge each other in the Republican presidential race, focusing their attention and attacks on rivals Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum instead. That curious detente will be tested in Maine’s caucuses today, where Romney’s reputation as a political shape shifter is set to go head-to-head with Paul’s quirky but consistent set of libertarian beliefs. children and large broods of grandchildren. Both Romney and Paul are physically fit and highly disciplined in their personal habits. They’re also religious — Romney is a Mormon, and Paul is a Baptist who leaves the campaign trail most Sundays in part to attend church services near his Texas home. Both men are veterans of the 2008 Republican nomination contest and are on friendly personal terms, as
are their wives, aides say. The relationship in part explains their unwillingness to attack one another. Paul’s TV ads, which have included harsh, pointed critiques of Santorum and Gingrich, have been much easier on Romney. Paul’s campaign ran one ad casting all three rivals as “counterfeit conservatives,” but otherwise he has not criticized Romney with the same intensity as he has Gingrich. He slammed Gingrich for
his work for the federal mortgage giant Freddie Mac, and he cast Santorum as a “corporate lobbyist and Washington politician.” Paul has also defended Romney against attacks on Bain Capital, the investment firm where Romney made millions. Critics, including Gingrich, have criticized Bain for consolidating companies and laying off workers to make big profits for Romney and other executives at the firm.
Santorum, Romney sell selves to conservatives WASHINGTON (AP) — GOP presidential rivals made contrasting appeals to conservatives Friday, with Mitt Romney saying he proved his mettle as Massachusetts governor and Rick Santorum saying Romney is so moderate that electing him would be a “hollow victory.” Their speeches to the Conservative Political Action Conference came as Santorum tries to convert his surprising caucus wins this week into a resilient, muscular campaign and Romney seeks to persuade conservatives that he won’t disappoint them. Santorum’s tack was unorthodox, and perhaps risky. Facing Republicans who desperately want to replace President Barack Obama, Santorum said it’s even more vital to put a conservative crusader into the White House. “We will no longer abandon and apologize for the policies and principles that made this country great for a hollow victory in November,” he said. If voters see that as a hint that it’s more important to be ideologically pure than to oust Obama, Santorum may have to explain more fully in the days ahead. Romney, speaking a few hours later, said his four-year record in Massachusetts proved that he will fight for conservative values against the toughest odds. “I know conservatism because I have lived conservatism,” he said. Veering briefly from his written text, he called himself “severely conservative.” But Romney skated past details of his administration that trouble some right-leaning groups, including requiring state residents to obtain health insurance. Without saying Romney’s name, Santorum said the former governor’s health care record would make it impossible for him to draw needed contrasts with Obama. He said Romney had created “the stepchild of Obamacare.” Saying the Obamabacked 2010 health care law “will crush economic freedom,” Santorum urged Republicans not to nominate “someone who would simply give that issue away in the fall.” Santorum warned Republicans against a premature emphasis on moderate voters, who could decide the presidential election in swing states.
“We always talk about, ‘Oh, how are we going to get the moderates?”’ Santorum said. “Why would an undecided voter vote for a candidate of a party who the party is not excited about?” Romney alluded to his rivals obliquely, never saying their names. Presidential leadership “isn’t about getting a bill out of subcommittee or giving a speech,” he said. “I am the only candidate in this race, Republican or Democrat, who has never worked a day in Washington.” His r e m a rk s appeared aimed at former Pennsylvania Sen. Santorum, former House speaker Newt Gingrich and Rep. Ron Paul, all of whom spent years in Congress. Gingrich was scheduled to address CPAC later Friday. Paul was not scheduled to address the conference. Romney tried to reassure the audience that antipathy to Obama will energize millions of voters this fall, an indirect way of saying the lukewarm reception he gets from some conservatives isn’t crucial. Obama “is the conservative movement’s top recruiter,” he said. Romney said he would cut federal spending like he cut state spending in Massachusetts, although he vowed not to touch military budgets. “I was a conservative governor,” he said. “I fought against long odds in a deep blue state. I understand the battles that we, as conservatives, must fight because I have been on the front lines.” Santorum and Romney criticized the Obama administration’s bid to require Catholic-affiliated employers to cover birth control in their health insurance plans. After Santorum’s morning speech and before Romney’s afternoon address, Obama announced an update. He said religious-affiliated employers will not have to cover birth control for their employees. Instead, the government will demand that insurance companies be directly responsible for providing contraception. Santorum, a Catholic with a strong record of fighting legalized abortion, said Obama is “telling the Catholic Church that they are forced to pay for things that are against their basic tenets and teachings.” “It’s not about contraception, it’s about economic liberty,” he said.
“If he loses the election because he restructured companies, I don’t think that’s a healthy way to sort out the candidates,” Paul said in New Hampshire when asked about Romney’s history at Bain. Romney won New Hampshire’s first-in-thenation primary, and Paul came in second. Romney has returned the favor, occasionally praising Paul in debates for his understanding of health care. Paul is a former Air Force flight surgeon and obstetrician. “You do exactly what Ron Paul said ... you have to get health care to start working more like a market,” Romney said in a debate in December when asked how he would improve health coverage as president. Romney reiterated that praise this week in a conference call with Maine supporters, saying Paul’s years as a doctor gave him real world experience Gingrich and Santorum lack. For Romney, staying on Paul’s good side is also strategic. Paul’s presence in the race weakens Gingrich and Santorum, making things easier for Romney, the field’s front-runner. Paul has earned more than 10 percent of the vote in every contest so far, except for the 7 percent he earned in Florida. And he’s finished in the top three in three of the first eight contests. Those are voters who might otherwise support Gingrich or Santorum, since there is little overlap between Romney’s voters and Paul’s.

TOPEKA (AP) — An influential anti-abortion legislator is blocking the push for a ban on abortion in the Kansas Constitution, highlighting a split among abortion opponents over tactics and frustrating the group advocating the “personhood” proposal Friday. Chairman Lance Kinzer said he doesn’t plan to have a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the proposed constitutional amendment, which is sponsored by 25 other House members. Kinzer is the leading supporter of a bill to add new requirements for abortion providers into state law and ensure that the state doesn’t provide even indirect financing of abortions through income tax credits or deductions. Kinzer, an Olathe Republican and attorney, said he doesn’t believe the proposed constitutional amendment would withstand a court challenge and could lead to a U.S. Supreme
Court decision that could hamper abortion opponents’ attempts to enact new restrictions. Kansans for Life, the anti-abortion group with the most influence at the Statehouse, takes the same position. But the Personhood Kansas Committee, the Wichita-area group promoting the proposed amendment, strongly disagrees, and Chairman Bruce Garren said he’s surprised that Kinzer won’t at least agree to a hearing, particularly because there’s interest among Kinzer’s colleagues. “We have 25 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives. You’d think that would be enough to get a hearing,” Garren said. “It’s really frustrating.” Both chambers would have to adopt the proposed amendment by two-thirds majorities — something that’s likely in the House but uncertain in the Senate. If both did, the measure
would go on the statewide ballot in the Aug. 7 primary election, where approval by a simple majority would add it to the Constitution. Passage of a bill like the one Kinzer favors would require only simple majorities in both chambers and Brownback’s signature. Kinzer is pushing a 68-page bill to rewrite the state’s “informed consent” law on abortion, requiring doctors to provide certain information before terminating a woman’s pregnancy. Among other things, it would require doctors to allow their patients to hear a fetal heartbeat. The bill also would ensure there is no change to printed materials for patients, including one part that discusses alternatives to abortion and says, “What about adoption?” Also, the bill would prohibit schools from incorporating materials for any group that provides abortion services into classes that deal with human sexu-
ality or sexually transmitted diseases. Kinzer said he’s pursuing proposals that are likely to “maximizing the number of babies that we can save immediately” and trying to “push the boundaries” of restrictions allowed under federal court rulings. “Neither of those goals really is advanced by the personhood amendment,” Kinzer said. Sarah Gillooly, a lobbyist for Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, which provides abortions, said many abortion opponents understand that pursuing the personhood amendment is risky. If supporters succeeded in amending the Kansas Constitution, a court challenge is considered likely. In fact, supporters of the proposed amendment see it as a way to directly challenge Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court establishing a right to an abortion.
Lawmakers take stock of mental health diversions TOPEKA (AP) — Most of the troubled youths diverted from psychiatric residential treatment facilities after Kansas began reviewing the screening process for the homes have received some type of mental health service, a state official testified during a joint hearing of two state House committees following up on the matter. The SRS began reviewing residential treatment screenings last June amid concerns that the facilities, which are meant to treat children with psychiatric conditions, also were admitting those with other conditions, such as mental retardation, autism and drug addiction. Of the 220 youths ordered diverted from residential care from July through this month, 25 appealed the decision and 12 appeals succeeded, Gary Haulmark, the acting deputy secretary of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services, told the lawmakers Thursday. He said of the remaining 195 youths, all but 33 received some sort of community-based mental health services, while 14 of those 33 ended up in a residential facility within 30 days of diversion, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. The committees also heard from Linda Davis, of Manhattan, who said her grandson attacked her in their home after he was twice denied admittance to a residential facility in favor of home-based services. He pleaded guilty to sexual battery and the juvenile justice system arranged for him to receive residential facility treatment. “Our family is exhausted and traumatized,” Davis said. “We have been urged repeatedly over the years to just give up custody. But we acted responsibly, caring for our child ourselves. We asked for help only when we truly needed it, and then we didn’t get it.” She said her grandson, who has three mental disorders, was making progress in his third residential treatment facility when the new screening measures were enacted. “Then, at that critical point, because of a change in state policy driven by finances, (he) did not screen for an extension of stay at the PRTF,” Davis said. “There was no option except for him to come home.” After spending nine days in a private psychiatric facility, he was sent home, where his behavior steadily declined. Davis said that after a trip to the emergency room, hospital officials described her grandson as “psychotic, delusional and aggressive,” however he again was denied admission to a residential facility and sent home. Less than a week later, he attacked his grandmother. “People say ‘the system is broken,”’ Davis said. “But I don’t think ‘system’ is the right word for the assortment of agencies in Kansas that all seem to have the motto, ‘It’s not our department.”’

The Garden City Zoo was officially renamed Lee Richardson Zoo in 1950, more than two decades after it first opened its gates in 1927. Lee Richardson, then chief of police, was named the first park and zoo superintendent and held that title until his death in 1951. Following Richardson’s death, the reins were passed to Claude Owens, the newly named park and zoo superintendent, and Judy’s father.

Poor decisions prevail when actions lack common sense A
little common sense could go a long way. Columbus (Neb.) High School officials are taking a lot of heat because of a decision to complain about the uniforms worn by Omaha (Neb.) Burke High School during their girls basketball game. Monday, the Burke girls wore pink uniform tops and shorts, which were to be auctioned off after the game to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Columbus High Athletic Director John Krogstrand informed his coach, Dave Licari, at halftime that Nebraska state athletic rules require the home team (Burke in this case) to wear predominantly white uniforms. Licari made the decision to tell the officials, who in turn gave Burke a technical. Columbus High made the two free throws and broke open a one-point game, cruising to the win. A fews weeks ago in
Michigan, a cancer survivor, J.T. Gaskins, 17, was suspended for growing his hair long. He was growing long hair with the intent to later have it cut off and donate it to Locks of Love. The organization uses donated hair to provide hairpieces for those who lose their hair because of cancer. The Columbus High incident ended up on the front page of the state’s largest circulated newspaper, the Omaha World-Herald, and made the rounds on the Internet. Columbus’ superintendent said the two schools are working on a joint fundraiser, and to Burke’s credit, the school has stated there are no hard feelings. Gaskins has decided to leave the school rather than cut his hair. Both schools were well within the rules of a basketball game and the school’s dress code concerning long hair. But there are times when
rules should give-way to common sense. These are two of those instances. I am sure neither school is heartless or meant to cause such a stir. They were just following the rules. Since all calls for the athletic director are being directed to the Columbus superintendent, he is not speaking for himself, so his thought process cannot be followed. I think it is safe to assume, though, he never meant any harm, and certainly did not think this would be something that would end up on Huff Post, an Internet newspaper.
Sometimes in the heat of the moment, people do not stop to think about the ramifications of their decisions or actions. Do not forget that even though the AD brought the uniform violation to the coach’s attention, Licari had a choice to make, too. He could have told Krogstrand it was not an issue, or that the good cause outweighed the rules. Instead, he decided to alert the officials to the issue. He made the wrong choice. The officials, although they are not to blame, could have asked Licari if he really wanted to pursue the violation or they could have told the coach they were going to let it slide this time. The same could be said of the Michigan school board. It could have allowed an exception to the dress code for Gaskins after it learned why he was growing his hair long. There are exceptions to every rule. In both cases, people trying
to do good deeds were punished. Both issues have drawn a lot of attention, and it will be a long time before they are forgotten. All either school can do at this point is try and learn from the incidents. Maybe the Michigan school board makes changes in its dress code or at the very least allows for some exceptions. As for Columbus High, officials must try and make amends, and a shared fundraiser would help. Some will never forgive Columbus, and that is wrong. People made bad decisions and will have to live with them, learn and do better from this point forward. It is all we can do as human beings. It is all we ask our children to do. Admit mistakes, make amends and become better people.

Consumers pamper pets with healthier products DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Like many pet owners, customers at April Lawrence’s pet bakery and boutique in central Iowa want the best for their fourlegged family members. That means high-quality, safe and eco-friendly products, from organic food and treats to BPA-free toys and water dishes. And they don’t mind paying extra. “The customers are looking at their pets as part of their extended family,” says Lawrence, adding that the organic, baked-fromscratch, healthy treats she sells at Bone-a-patreat Pet Bakery and Boutique are especially popular. “They’re better than what I eat!” Many pet owners began looking for safer products
after huge pet food recalls in early 2007 that followed the renal failure and death of hundreds of animals, says Leslie May, who operates Pawsible Marketing, a firm that helps pet-related businesses, in Blue Ridge, Ga. “It really prompted people to wake up and look at what’s in their pet’s food and what’s around their pet’s life, in their environment,” she says, adding that there’s also a growing awareness of lead in dog toys made in China, and of the dangers posed by some plastics used in many pet products. Social media sites have provided a forum for people to learn more about pet health, she says, and that also leads to a demand for safe, well-made items.
“You are getting higher quality, which last longer, so you actually come out even or ahead in the end,” says May. For example, a food bowl free of the chemical bisphenol-A, or BPA, may cost twice as much as an ordinary bowl, but it can last a dog’s lifetime. Brad Weston, chief merchandising officer for Petco, a leading pet-products retailer with more than 1,100 stores, says there’s definitely a trend toward healthy, eco-friendly products as pet owners project their own lifestyle choices onto their pets. “(Pets) are increasingly thought of as family members, so not only are we willing to dig deeper into
our pockets for our pets, the choices we make for them are a direct reflection of our personal preferences, values and ideals,” he says. Petco stores include a Natural Shop, featuring natural and organic foods and treats. And the company has introduced a line called Planet Petco, with earthconscious products that are non-toxic, chemical-free and made from sustainable materials. No matter if the economy is slumping, Weston expects the trend in premium pet products to keep growing. “For the most part, as parents, we don’t skimp on our kids until or unless we really have to. And same goes for our pets today,” he says.
A mother struggles with constantly missing mittens By JENNIFER QUIST Wisdom consists of the anticipation of consequences. — Norman Cousins
t’s like the Bermuda Triangle. There’s definitely some kind of vortex between the bus stop, the playground and the boot room of every elementary school all over this country. But it’s not siphoning airplanes and sailboats out of this dimension and into oblivion. It craves something else — something smaller and woollier. It wants mittens. Like most kids, my five sons do their best to keep this sucking chasm of mitten doom well fed. Between October and April, my shopping list always includes the perennial items of tissues, oranges and, of course, mittens. It’s inevitable, frustrating and it’s starting to get expensive. Maybe I should have accepted the mitten drain a long time ago. It was certainly part of life when I was a child growing up in this chilly climate. I spent hundreds of frigid mornings frantically digging through my parents’ mitten bin until long after I should have already left for school. In desperation, I’d finally surface with mittens that were painfully different in color or size — or both. At the worst of times, the only

Chicken Soup for the Soul mittens I could find were both meant for the same hand. Remember how comfortable that feels? Still, as a parent I was sure my boys and I could outmaneuver the mitten vortex. Fortunately for keen parents everywhere, the dilemma of lost mittens happens to be the quintessential example of a parenting philosophy known as the “Natural and Logical Consequences” method. According to this very sensible approach, parents should not throw themselves between their kids and the direct results of the kids’ actions. In the case of the lost mittens, it means a parent should let a careless child experience the full brunt of the effects of losing mittens. The child’s hands should be allowed to go unprotected from the elements so the discomfort of cold hands can help the child learn to value his mittens and take better care of them. But in Canada — particularly the northern boreal forest region, where I raise children — the natural and logical consequences of losing mittens and having to go without when it’s minus Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias Support Group. The support group welcomes any family members or friends caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias.

40 degrees might amount to something more than just a logical breakthrough. The consequences could be something much more memorable — like, say, a trip to the emergency room for some frostbite treatment. With this clever parenting strategy ruled out, I looked for a more concrete solution to the problem of missing mittens. And I found one in an old classic: mittens-on-a-string. But then I learned a bit of cruel elementary school slang for string-mounted mitts. Some kids call them “idiot mittens.” It’s probably evidence of my own social anxiety issues that I stopped short of branding all my kids “idiots” by stringing their mittens through their coat sleeves. Instead, I let my boys know that the next one of them to lose a mitten would be sentenced to a full month of wearing the hand-knitted, mostly polyester, barn-red pair of mitts my grandmother had mailed us all the way from Nova Scotia as part of our last Christmas package. We called them “the punishment mittens.” These drafty, single-ply, flea-market mitts were blasts directly from my past. They were indistinguishable from mittens I’d worn when I was in elementary school, and somehow I made it through the 1970s with all my fin-
gers intact. But compared to the modern fleece mitts of the 21st century, they were abominations — my kids knew it. Regardless of the threat, it wasn’t long before my oldest son was trudging out to the bus stop with his little white hands clad in the red, 25-cent mittens zapped here from another decade. I felt a little sorry for him. But at least his handmade mittens were a matching set. A month later, his sentence of wearing the punishment mittens was over and my son had proved he was starting to understand their true value. We celebrated his enlightenment with a trip to the store to buy a brand-new pair of sleek but well-insulated gloves in the same shade of navy blue every other boy at school was wearing that winter. It was an important lesson, not just for my son’s benefit, but for mine, too. It seems keeping my kids in mittens all winter long, whatever the cost or trouble, is really just keeping myself in mittens. No matter what the parenting books say, we all know what happens in the real world when a real mom has a real kid with really cold hands and long-lost mittens. “Here,” the mom will say, tugging somewhat irately at her own gloves. “You can wear mine.”

Zoo: Belknap remembers growing up with the animals Continued from Page B1
Her childhood home â€” the one she still lives in today with her husband, Gerald â€” is only a hop and a skip away from the perimeter of the zoo, as well as its main entrance. When her father took on the role of zoo director back in 1951, he was hardly new to the job, having overseen the park and zoo operations under Richardson since 1932 and having had a passion for and connection to the animals in the park like no other man before him or after him, according to his daughter. â€œI watched a man that lived the zoo â€” it was his life,â€? the lifelong Garden City resident said. â€œWithout Claude Owens, there would be no zoo, and there will never be another Claude Owens. ... If Iâ€™d have known him, and had he not been my father, I would feel the same.â€? Back then â€” from the 1930s to 1970s â€” the zoo looked a lot different. There was no fence around the grounds, no paved roads, no elaborate entrance or habitats like the indoor aviary or Wild Asia exhibit that allow visitors to experience the animalsâ€™ natural habitats. But there were sea lions and polar bears, and even larger animals like lions and elephants and hippos, habitats for which were all built by the same men who fed, cleaned and looked after the animals. At that time, the animals were fed with a horse and wagon carrying buckets of feed. Judy said she still can remember riding on the back of the hay wagon as a girl. â€œIn the early years, they raised their own feed. That was a tremendous job. They raised their own hay and grain. They didnâ€™t have a budget big enough to buy everything,â€? she said. â€œThe men worked by the hours, and my father was salaried, so he did most of the irrigating because they probably couldnâ€™t afford and didnâ€™t like overtime. So they had to do that after hours. ... But it was the life he loved.â€?
The zoo family The same year Judyâ€™s father was named zoo and park superintendent, Tommy the Lion was born and quickly became a part of the Owens household. The young cub not only shared the dinner table and a spot on the family room carpet, photographers from Life, the iconic magazine, came to document the fam-

Judyâ€™s mother, Mary, ran the Big Pool in Garden City for 16 years, around the same time her father headed the zoo operations, and it was common for the entire family to pitch in to care for, clean and put the babies from the zoo to sleep. â€œIt was totally a family thing,â€? Judy said, adding that she and her sister, Janice, older by four years, would take their turns watching, feeding and caring for the cubs, fawns and other newborns indoors. â€œWe had a little porch off our kitchen thatâ€™s still there today. At that time, that was the animal sanctuary. If we raised baby deer or antelope, Daddy would fill it with prairie hay, and they would stay out in that. ... And on Sunday, theyâ€™d let people come and view (them) from outside.â€? Perhaps the most trying rehabilitation for the entire Owens family came in late 1957, when a polar cub they named Klondike was born on Thanksgiving Day. The newborn needed around the clock care, and Judy said she, her parents and her sister took turns feeding and
watching the fragile cub. The daughter of the zoo superintendent said she can remember the old Timex watch display case they had put together with a heating pad and water inside for moisture to keep the cub alive and fed it goatâ€™s milk and vitamins to gain its strength. â€œWe were fourth in the nation at that time for longevity in raising a polar,â€? she said, adding that the bear didnâ€™t survive more than a couple months. â€œWe didnâ€™t have the facilities like ... the larger zoos, and even today we donâ€™t. ... For a little zoo in Garden City, Kansas, it was an amazing feat.â€?
have made the zoo its present-day attraction,â€? and â€œa showplace of Kansas.â€? Owens was instrumental in getting reticulated giraffes to Garden City, and the giraffe barn today is named after the former zoo figurehead. The zoo today attracts not only locals and southwest Kansans but visitors not only from the opposite end of the state but from surrounding states, as well. This year, in fact, marks the zooâ€™s 85th anniversary since it first opened its gates, a historic milestone that few communities this size can claim, and zoo officials are marking the occa-
Judy Belknap, Garden City, is the daughter of Claude Owens, who served as superintendent of Lee Richardson Zoo from 1951 to 1970. She still lives at the 309 S. Seventh St. home where her father often brought home polar bear cubs and baby lions to care for. sion by holding birthday activities for the young â€” and for the young at heart â€” during each season of the year. Kathy Sexson, who has been zoo director since 2003, said her predecessor, Dan Baffa, was also instrumental in bringing the zoo up to what it is today. Baffa, she said, is responsible for much of the beautiful landscaping and greenery throughout the park, and under his leadership, the zoo began earning national accreditations that it still holds today. Between keeping up to date on accreditations every five years and with the future expansion projects down the road â€” for example, Cat Canyon, and an expanded elephant yard â€” there is much to look forward to before the zoo hits its centennial, Sexson said. â€œI think (the zoo founders) would be pleasantly surprised and proud to
know ... how far weâ€™ve come with what they started,â€? Sexson said. â€œConservation has taken on a whole new meaning and life. I think theyâ€™d be really happy with how it has evolved. The zoo is and has always been an important component of life in Garden City.â€? For Judy and her family, the zoo inside Finnup Park has played an indispensable role in their lives. From her zookeeper father, she learned to love and care for animals, just one of the many values she passes on to her growing family today. â€œI think in learning to love an animal, it makes you a person that is so forgiving and so cautious, and I think it even made me a better parent,â€? she said. â€œMy children love animals, and itâ€™s been our life. ... They give you 100 percent where people donâ€™t always. Your animals give back more than you ever give them.â€?

HI & LOIS FOR BETTER OR WORSE
HAGAR THE HORRIBLE
Try your hand at • Sudoku • Battleships • Pic-A-Pics • Kakuro and many more.
SATURDAY February 11, 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) HHHH You feel pressure building with someone you respect and look up to. This person seems to have continuously changing demands. Catch up on an older person’s news and clear out any pending responsibilities. Make late-afternoon plans. Tonight: So many invitations. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HH Complete a project -- personal or otherwise -- that you have had on the back burner. You feel that you can make plans for a long-deserved getaway once you are done. For now, join friends and/or family at a gathering. Tonight: Make it stress-free. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH Someone might rain on your parade, but certainly not for long. You understand the issue and might try to resolve it -- if the other party is ready. Plan on spending the day with a loved one, indulging him or her in one of his or her favorite pastimes. Tonight: And the party goes on. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Stay centered, even if you find others highly critical and difficult. You might wonder why you are putting up with this behavior. That is an excellent question! Be where you want to be with the people you would like to be with. Tonight: Throw a spontaneous get-together. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might be far more wordy than you realize. You could be processing a lot without realizing it. Focus on each person, each conversation. In the long run, the results will only be better. Avoid a control game at all costs. Tonight: At a favorite spot. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You could be exhausted by everything that is going on with a friend or loved one. Pull back some and take better care of yourself. Whether this might be going on a playful adventure, getting a massage or anything else that might please you makes no difference. Tonight: Remain nonreactive.
DAY IN THE STARS
Jacquelline Bigar King Features
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH You beam, and others respond. Your ability to sort through a problem -- probably impacting your home life -- could make a big difference. Listen to a friend and what really might be motivating him or her. Willingly revise your plans. Tonight: All smiles. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You might want to distance yourself from the source of a control game or problem. You don’t need to see eye to eye with this person. You simply need to not play. Your honesty and self-discipline will pay off for you. Tonight: Do for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH Maintain a high profile when it comes to your money and how you spend it. Someone might try to coerce you into spending more than you want or heading in a different direction. You know what you want. Follow through on just that. Tonight: Where the crowds are. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You might be causing yourself more problems than need be, especially if you are trying to make sure your message is heard. Remember that you cannot change anyone. The best plan would be to accept the person as he or she is. Tonight: A must appearance. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You don’t need to share what you might be thinking with a special person. In fact, it might be a total mistake to do just that. Stay present with this individual. Share more of your authentic self. A trip could be planned for the near future. Tonight: Try a new place or different cuisine. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You are emotional, but you are also quite capable of relating effectively, if you so choose. A friend might mean well but cannot help but complicate an existing matter. Try to keep your interactions with this person simple, for both of your sakes! Tonight: Add more romance into your life.

A clear path for Being overweight but still healthy the shower head
Dear Heloise: A few months ago, while helping my dad with some things in the house, we could not figure out how to get calcium deposits off the shower head in his bathroom. The water was barely flowing. He dismantled the shower head and soaked it in a bowl of vinegar. Within 30 minutes, it was perfectly clean and void of any blockage. My mother, who always used vinegar, and Heloise knew what they were doing! Our water is full of calcium and leaves showers and sinks spotted! I had tried expensive bathroom and tile cleaners. Nothing succeeded until I started pouring straight vinegar over the calcium buildup. (Heloise here: Do not pour on real marble.) Vinegar has become my cleaner of choice. I just wanted to thank you. â€” Sherry in New Braunfels, Texas Sherry, thank you for sharing how super vinegar is. Vinegar certainly is a workhorse around the home, and it is one of my favorite go-to cleaners! I
have compiled a collection filled with money-saving and â€œgreenâ€? vinegar hints. If you would like to receive one, please send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Vinegar, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Fresh cola stains should come out of most washable fabrics after being sponged with white vinegar. Launder as usual. â€” Heloise
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have serious doubts about judging weight and health. Everyone talks about the obesity epidemic, but no one speaks for those of us who are overweight by accepted standards but are still in good shape. I am 33. Since grade school, I have exercised hard â€” and still do. I lift weights and run long distances and do both regularly. I am 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weigh 185 pounds. My BMI is 28, which puts me in the â€œoverweightâ€? category. I am quite muscular, and my waist is 31 inches. I have the same build as my father and grandfather. My grandfather is 79 and still works his 80acre farm. What do you say
Dear Readers: Cathy in Madison, Maine, sent us a picture of Duckie, her 130-pound mixedbreed dog, crashed out on the couch next to Zelda, a tortoise-colored cat. They look like best buddies! To see Duckie and Zelda, visit www.Heloise.com and click on â€œPets.â€? â€” Heloise
much of the body weight is fat and how much is muscle and bone) than is weight obtained by stepping on a scale, but itâ€™s not perfect. Heavily muscled individuals come out as being overweight when their weight has no bearing on health or longevity. If people want to calculate their BMI, divide weight in pounds by height in inches squared, and multiply that number by 703. Those proficient with metric measurements, divide weight in kilograms by height in meters squared. Normal values lie
between 18.5 and 24.9. Waist measurement is another reliable criterion of health. For men, the waist should be less than 40 inches (102 cm), and for women less than 35 inches (89 cm). Abdominal fat has a greater negative impact on health than fat in other places. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Readers may also order health newsletters from www.rbmamall. com.
Send a money-saving or timesaving hint to Heloise, P.O. Box 795000, San Antonio, TX 78279-5000, or you can fax it to (210) HELOISE or email it to Heloise@Heloise.com.
Mom concerned about estate DEAR ANNIE: I am 90 years old and am concerned that after I die my kids will squabble over my things. So I would like to work it out before that happens. I have a daughter who lives in another state and two wonderful daughtersin-law who live nearby. â€œDoraâ€? and my oldest son have helped me the most. When my husband was still living, they arranged a reverse mortgage on our house by making us a loan from their personal funds. When my husband became feeble, Dora began doing my grocery shopping. Every Sunday, she brings a nice dinner, and my son does any needed repairs around the house. She always brings me a gift on Motherâ€™s Day and on my birthday. I already have given Dora two nice heirlooms, and I know she would like to have my motherâ€™s sterling silver. My daughter will get the antique wall clock, and my other daughter-in-law gets the china closet. How do I divide the rest of the stuff ? Should I give Dora the sterling now? â€” Old in Indiana Dear Indiana: Please speak to an estate planner or, at the very least, a lawyer who can handle your will. As tempting as it is to give more to Dora than the others, it could create all sorts of resentments later. The division of your estate should be relatively equal, but you can make special gifts of pieces of jewelry or sentimental items. If you think your children will behave themselves, it can help to discuss this with all of them in advance, ask-
about this? â€” D.R. I agree with you. The Mayo Clinic did a study comparing overweight but highly fit people to people with normal weight but low fitness. The overweight but highly fit had a lower risk of dying. If overweight people have normal cholesterol, normal blood pressure and normal blood sugar, their overall health isnâ€™t impacted by their weight. They are, however, in the distinct minority. As for BMI, body mass index, itâ€™s a better criterion of body composition (how

ing each child to select one item that they would like to have. And yes, you can give it to them while you are around to see them enjoy it. DEAR ANNIE: Am I the only person who is disappointed by generic email Christmas and birthday cards? They seem so impersonal, and I do not appreciate receiving such cold greetings. One longtime friend has resorted to this, in spite of the fact that I always mail her an old-fashioned, hand-signed card. How can I get her to stop sending me email cards without hurting her feelings? Would it be rude to return the greeting to her? Iâ€™m an old-fashioned person who was raised during the age of smoke signals and find that life used to be much simpler and warmer. â€” Over-Seventy Attitude Dear Attitude: We agree that email cards are less personal than handwritten notes, but it does take a certain amount of effort to select the right one from hundreds of possibilities, so try to give your friend credit for that. And many people have stopped sending cards altogether, which is a shame. Please accept these cards in the spirit in which they were sent â€” that is, to convey good wishes to you.

When all is said and done your family is more important than “All the money in China.” As such, it is incumbent upon each and every one of us to do our best to insure that our home is a safe place in which to live. It is so easy and inexpensive to remove danger from our family’s path. Here are several tips that can prove to be invaluable to you and yours. Draw a line through the ones you have already completed – and then work on what’s left: • Set your water heater at 120 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent burns. • Install at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home and inside all sleeping areas. • Install at least one Carbon Monoxide Alarm near each sleeping area. • Keep gas appliances properly adjusted and serviced. • Have a trained professional inspect, clean and tune-up your home’s central heating system and repair leaks or other problems. • Fireplaces and woodstoves should also be inspected each year and cleaned or repaired as needed. • Maintain all exterior steps and walkways. Patch cracks, repair uneven surfaces on walkways and remove hoses and other trip hazards. • Mark the edges of steps with reflective tape or consider a ramp. Make sure handrails are available and secured properly. • Keep emergency numbers handy – 911 is easy to remember, but calling directly for an ambulance can save time and possibly a life. • All the rooms in your home should be simply arranged and clean with wide uncluttered walk spaces: 4No piles of books or paper on the floor to slip on or trip over. 4No loose throw rugs - they are a trip hazard especially on tile, vinyl or hardwood. 4If you do have an area carpet it should be taped to the floor. 4If you have wall to wall carpet make sure it has a low pile so as not to make it difficult to move your feet. 4Keep all floors wax-free to avoid slipping. 4Place electrical, phone, and computer cords along walls where they will not trip anyone. To avoid the risk of fire, do not run the wires under carpeting. 4Protect sharp table corners with rounded pads. Replace glass tables with solid furniture that has rounded edges (no sharp corners). This is a section of a three part series. Watch for more house safety in the upcoming weeks.

Ask a Designer: Let your home do your wooing By Melissa Rayworth For The Associated Press
Could a few changes to your living space help you land the perfect mate? Good decorating canâ€™t guarantee happy romance, of course. But if a new date finds your home appealing, he or she is more likely to spend time there â€” which means spending time with you. And if your home expresses your personality, you and your date can discover more quickly whether youâ€™re compatible. Fortunately, itâ€™s not expensive to make your space more date-friendly, says interior designer Betsy Burnham. The goal isnâ€™t to redecorate; youâ€™re simply presenting your home at its best. With Valentineâ€™s Day approaching, Burnham and interior designers Brian Patrick Flynn of decordemon.com and Kyle Schuneman of Live Well Designs share advice on making a new dateâ€™s visit a successful one. CLEAN UP â€œThe obvious things really are worth saying here: Cleanliness is
free, and itâ€™s appreciated,â€? Burnham says. â€œDo all the dishes before the person arrives. Scrub the sinks. Clean out the fridge. If you donâ€™t want to do your laundry, get a couple of beautiful baskets and throw your laundry in there.â€? Schuneman suggests walking through your home as if you were a stranger, assessing it room by room to see what needs cleaning up or adjusting. What is outdated and isnâ€™t you anymore? What might give the wrong impression? Every room matters. Even if your guest wonâ€™t be entering your bedroom, they may glimpse it on the way to the bathroom. So make your bed, and consider what the room says about you. â€œWhen single people are getting to know one another, you can really tell a lot about who they are from their more private quarters,â€? Flynn says. â€œI often use prints in bedrooms, either on the walls behind a bed or near the bed, in the form of wallpaper or fabric. Someone with more traditional prints may be a bit more oldfashioned and reserved,
whereas someone with bold geometric prints may be much more daring.â€? FEED ALL FIVE SENSES Schuneman, who wrote â€œThe First Apartment Book,â€? due out in August from Random House, says many of his younger clients focus on the visual without considering the sounds, scents and feel of their living space. People often think decorating â€œis just about paint on the walls,â€? he says, â€œbut itâ€™s really about creating an experience.â€? Soft textures will make a chair or sofa more inviting, and a fluffy rug can delight guests who will be taking off their shoes. Candles or fresh flowers can make the scent of a room more appealing, whether the fragrance is crisp and energizing or soothing. And music isnâ€™t the only way to set a mood or banish silence, Schuneman says. â€œMaybe itâ€™s the crackling of a fireplaceâ€? that helps create a good atmosphere. LIGHT CAREFULLY Burnham likes to light rooms with table
lamps or floor lamps when guests visit. If you must use overhead lights, she advises dimming them to avoid glare. â€œPeople want to feel that they look their best, and you want your things to look as good as they can,â€? Burnham says. â€œOverhead lights flatter no one.â€? LAYER ON THE STYLE â€œJust like a great person has many layers to their personality, a well-layered room speaks volumes,â€? Flynn says. â€œIn my own living room, I layered texture everywhere, including grasscloth on the walls, a linen print on the draperies, a nubby tweed on the upholstery, and a thick charcoal wool shag.â€? Guests, he says, are â€œinstantly drawn to the space, and end up staying for hours on end just relaxing and unwinding.â€? One option for bachelors: â€œIâ€™ve been upholstering guysâ€™ walls with pinstripe suit fabric,â€? Flynn says. â€œIt packs sex appeal, and can remain should their gal pal become their spouse in the future.â€? INFUSE YOUR
PERSONALITY Burnham suggests decorating your main living area with items that reveal something about your personality or experiences. Arrange a stack of your favorite books on a coffee table. If you play an instrument, consider displaying it. â€œIf youâ€™re out of the room, these things tell your date something about you,â€? she says. â€œTheyâ€™re a jumping-off point for conversation.â€? Schuneman encourages clients to decorate with items collected during their travels, either from exotic places or closer to home. CREATE A LOUNGE SPACE â€œSince the kitchen is where most guests seem to feel the most comfortable, I like to turn small kitchens into more intimate, lounge-like gathering spaces, where conversation and flirtation is encouraged,â€? Flynn says. â€œIn a small condo, I covered all of its walls with $8-per-square-foot glossy black penny rounds (tiles), and added three chrome-and-crystal pendants,â€? he says. â€œThen I brought in barstools upholstered in a
red-and-white chinoiserie fabric, which had a bit of a Vegas feel, but still had enough traditional flair to remain classic.â€? ADD FRESH TOUCHES All three designers suggest adding just a few new details to energize your space. For minimal expense, you can brighten your sofa with new throw pillows or add fresh hand towels to the bathroom, Burnham says. Scout around for sales and buy a beautiful, oversize bowl to display fresh fruit in your kitchen, or a new vase for flowers. Donâ€™t worry that youâ€™ll come on too strong, she says. â€œMen, it doesnâ€™t mean youâ€™ve gone completely off the deep end for someone if you buy fresh flowers. It just means youâ€™re making an effort.â€? This advice applies to anyone. â€œEven if youâ€™ve been married a long time,â€? Schuneman says, making an effort with your living space before a special evening can have a huge impact. â€œAdding that spice, that â€˜Oh, wow, you did something special,â€?â€™ he says, â€œgoes a long way.â€?
cal conditions with those in the average home in winter. Yes, indoor temperatures might hover at around 70, although many of us let the temperature drop at night. A bigger problem is humidity, which typically is less than 40 percent indoors in winter. Frequently misting the plant, standing the pot in a saucer of pebbles and water, and clustering it close to other plants all help to bring the humidity up. Chocolate naturally grows as an understory tree, and even under cultivation is grown in shade. So providing sufficient light does not present much of a problem in growing a potted plant indoors. The plant wonâ€™t tolerate a dark room, though. Direct your Valentine to set the plant at a sunny window, which in midwinter in more northerly latitudes receives about the same amount of light as a shaded tree near the equator. As winter progresses and the northern sun loops higher in the sky, the plant needs to be pulled back from the window to keep the leaves from burning. An indoor chocolate plant appreciates an annual vacation to the â€œtropics.â€? Give it something close by moving it outdoors in dappled shade each summer to bask in buoyant air and high humidity.
SEED HARVEST IS ONLY THE BEGINNING So much for growing chocolate; what about eating it? With good growing conditions, footballshaped pods a half-foot to a foot long will pop right out of the trunk or stems within about five years for a seed-grown plant, a couple of years for a nursery-bought plant. But this is not a fruit to pluck right off the tree and chomp on. First, thereâ€™s the hard
shell. Second, the seeds â€” called cacao beans at this point â€” taste like â€œchocolateâ€? only after some processing. Cacao beans are converted to cocoa, then chocolate, by first letting the slimy covering ferment as the beans are piled together and kept warm for about a week. After a few more days of drying, the chocolatey flavor starts to emerge. Next, the seeds are roasted at about 270 degrees Fahrenheit for
several hours. Finally, theyâ€™re ground up and treated with alkali to remove bitterness. Defatted and powdered, you have â€œcocoaâ€?; with some fat, sweetener, and other ingredients such as milk, you have various kinds of â€œchocolate.â€? A TASTE OF HISTORY Use of chocolate goes back to the Mayans, who considered it a gift from their god of air, Quetzalcoatl. The Spanish were the first Europeans to
get hold of chocolate pods and, 50 years later, figured out what to do with them. After harvest begins, you might want to snuggle up with your Valentine and sip hot chocolate from this 16th century Spanish recipe: Combine 50 cacao beans with a chili pepper pod, a quarter pound of sugar, and some anise, rose blossoms, cinnamon, almonds and hazelnuts. Grind to a paste, add a cup of boiling water, and serve hot and steamy. Sweet.
Chocolateâ€™s a challenge for gardening Valentines By Lee Reich For The Associated Press
If chocolateâ€™s the thing for your sweetie on Valentineâ€™s Day, why give plain old candy when you can give a chocolate plant (Theobroma cacao)? THE CHALLENGE OF CHOCOLATE Growing chocolate from seed is difficult. Fresh, they are covered with what looks like a cottony mass that keeps them properly moist for sprouting. The covering is slimy, though, and starts to rot away as soon as the seeds are out of the pods. Still, you might want to give the seeds as a gardening challenge, perhaps nestled in a gift box on some moist, real cotton. To sprout, the seeds need warmth and welldrained soil. Fresh seeds are available online at Montosgardens.com and Organicfarm.net. A chocolate plant thatâ€™s up and growing makes a more dramatic gift than a few seeds snuggled in cotton. (Plants are widely available online.) But caring for an already growing chocolate plant is still a challenge. Chocolate is native to the tropical lowlands of Central and South America within 20 degrees on either side of the equator. There, neither the temperature nor the humidity ever drops much below about 70. Contrast such tropi-

Clawing one out
Buffs go to OT for 57-54 win over Panthers. By BRETT MARSHALL
The Garden City High School boys basketball team has had its share of close games this season — and its share of close losses. So when the Buffaloes and Great Bend found themselves in overtime on Friday night at The Garden, one wondered just how this game would be play out. Rather than suffering another disappointing setback, the Buffs this time found the right combination in the four-minute extra period and produced a 57-54 homecoming victory over the Panthers. “I think just being able to hang with it, we’ve been here before and we knew what we had to do,” said GCHS coach Jacy Holloway afterward. “We just made some good plays and it’s nice to finish a game. We had our chances to put it away in regulation, but we did a lot of good things in overtime.” The victory improves the Buffs to 7-10 overall and more importantly puts them at 4-1 in the Western Athletic Conference, just one game behind leader Dodge City, which is up next at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday at The Garden. “It might not quite be the Hatchet Game, but it’s pretty close for us,”
Holloway said of the upcoming game with the Red Demons. “We’ve given ourselves an opportunity to battle for the league lead and that’s all you can ask.” Holloway said the Buffaloes were much more effective on the defensive end in the second half, especially in overtime as they forced four Great Bend turnovers that led to six of the 12 points in the four-minute period. “They do a good job and we always have a tough battle,” Holloway said of the Panthers and coach Chris Battin. “They’re wellcoached, they don’t turn it over much. You’ve got to be smart against them. They rarely beat themselves.” The game would have ended in regulation had it not been for a buzzertying bank shot by Great Bend’s Ethan Henderson that knotted the score at 45. Battin had called timeout with 2.1 seconds left when his first option on offense didn’t work. His second one did. Henderson had been a thorn in the Buffs’ side all night, as he grabbed 10 boards for the Panthers. Jake Curran, scoreless in the first half, answered the bell in the second, finishing with 19 points and grabbing a season-high 12 rebounds to pace the Buffs. He was 10-of-15 at the free throw line and scored nine of the team’s 12 points in the extra period. “I think we just started to buckle down more on Brad Nading/Telegram defense and that created some of the turnovers,” Holloway said of the over- Garden City High School’s Tristan Nanninga, center, drives the lane for a See OT, Page D3
Lady Buffs fade near end, but beat Lady Panthers, 37-31. By BRETT MARSHALL
David Upton might be welladvised to consider purchasing a heart monitor when he is sitting on the bench coaching the Garden City High School Lady Buffaloes. Just about the time Upton thinks his team has put a game away, the Buffs seemingly do everything just to get the other team back into contention. That was never more evident on Friday night, and Homecoming to boot, in the Lady Buffs’ 37-31 victory over Great Bend in Western Athletic Conference action at The Garden. “We got about one and a half good quarters tonight, but it was enough,” Upton said after watching his team improve to

4-1 in the WAC and 11-6 overall. “We just seem to fizzle out at some points in the game, and it’s as much about making mistakes as anything. We do a number of really good things and then we just get in a hurry and don’t pay attention.” After a first half that was close for much of the 16 minutes, with the Lady Buffs holding a 1715 lead, they put together their best quarter of the night in the third, owning a 13-0 dominating effort that had Upton pleased and the team comfortably ahead, 30-15. With five minutes remaining and still up by 14, 32-18, Great Bend then made its run at the Lady Buffs. The Lady Panthers scored 11 unanswered points to pull within three, 32-29, at the 2:15 mark before Taryn Tempel snapped the drought with a fastbreak layup with 2:01 to play. Great Bend’s Morgan Harwood countered with a bucket with 1:48 to go before three free throws in the final 1:30 by Garden iced the victory. In the first half, neither team
Lakin boys, girls beat Elkhart By KEVIN THOMPSON email@example.com
LAKIN — On a night when a state title team was being honored, Lakin looked to use that symbiotic energy to its advantage. The girls maybe found some of that energy of the past as they came back to defeat Elkhart 45-42 in a Hi-Plains League game. Despite jumping out to a 15-9 lead after the first quarter, during which Elkhart had trouble finding the basket, the Lady Broncs saw that lead quickly disappear in the second. After going up 19-11 at the 6:50 mark, Lakin went over six minutes before scoring, during which time they saw the Lady Wildcats take a 24-21 lead into halftime. Lakin battled back in the second half in what became a seesaw battle the rest of the way. They chipped away at the Elkhart lead midway into the final period and tied it at 39-39 when Kara Simmons nailed a three with 2:28 to play. Elkhart could only manage three free throws the rest of the way while Lakin scored six more points in a variety of ways for the win. See Win, Page D3

Ten years ago, the Lakin High School boys basketball team accomplished something no other team before them nor since can claim. The Broncs put together a perfect, magical season to capture the state 3A title at the Hutchinson Sports Arena, capping a 26-0 run through the 2001-02 season and leaving an imprint on the memories of the Lakin community. Players and coaches were reunited and recognized between varsity games Friday night in the gym that opened in 2000 and on which they made school history just a year later with a state title. In its tournament run, Lakin defeated Oakley, Holcomb and Oberlin in sub-state. Averaging 66 points a game that season, in the state tournament they rolled over Wichita Collegiate 77-44 and Riley County 75-57 to reach the finals, where they defeated Beloit 54-50 for the crown. The four-point win was the closest anyone came to the Broncs all season since a 66-62 win over

McGruder, Kansas State ready for road matchup with Texas By ARNE GREEN
Special to The Telegram
Texas Tech forward Jaron Nash, left, and Kansas State center Jordan Henriquez chase a loose ball during the second half of aBig 12 conference game on Tuesday. Kansas State won and heads to Austin, Texas, for a matchup with the Longhorns today.
Rodney McGruder is making a habit of putting his best foot forward against Texas. Fortunately for the Kansas State Wildcats, that foot appears to be healing just in time. McGruder, slowed by an infected blister in home victories last Saturday over Texas A&M and Tuesday against Texas Tech, should be good to go when the Wildcats travel to Austin, Texas, for their second go-round with Texas at 1 p.m. today in the Frank Erwin Center. “He feels better, health-wise,” K-State coach Frank Martin said of McGruder, who scored a careerhigh 33 points in the Wildcats’ 84-80 victory over the Longhorns on Jan. 18. “He was awful from a health standpoint, how he felt in the Texas A&M game. “He felt better against Tech and he feels a lot better (Thursday).” By winning twice at Bramlage Coliseum, K-State improved to 17-6 overall and 6-5 in the Big 12. Texas (15-9, 5-6) also has won two in a row.
McGruder, who leads the Wildcats with 14.6 points a game, had just five on 1-for-9 shooting against Texas A&M, his lone single-digit scoring game in Big 12 play. He came back with 10 points in 23 minutes and made both of his 3-point attempts Tuesday as the Wildcats beat Texas Tech, 6546. “I have just been listening to Frank and the trainers,” McGruder said Thursday. “Frank has been trying to get me through it. “I just listen to advice from guys who know what they’re talking about. Previously, I have been in a lot of pain, but now it’s getting a lot better.” It’s hard to imagine McGruder being better than he was in the first meeting with Texas, when he went 11-of-17 from the field, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range, and grabbed eight rebounds. He also had 22 points against the Longhorns last year. “D.C. guys like Texas, I guess,” said K-State senior forward Jamar Samuels, another Washington, D.C., native, who battled foul trouble and still scored 14 points in
24 minutes the last time against the Longhorns. “I know Mike (Beasley) had at least 18-plus points a game against them when he was here. “Rodney is always well prepared against Texas and it really shows. I know that he is amped up for this game and everyone else is, too.” K-State has won three straight against Texas and four of the last five. Another big game from McGruder could go a long way toward extending the streak. “I hope it happens again,” Martin said. “There is nothing more I would like to see than him scoring somewhere between 22 and 33 points a game. That would be a god-send. “Rodney has been pretty consistent for us in his ability to score. He is really important to us.” In the first Texas game, KState also got 11 points each from Thomas Gipson and Will Spradling. J’Covan Brown had 22 points, but made just 8 of 28 shots for Texas, while Sheldon McClellan scored 19 off the bench and point guard Myck Kabongo added 14 points and 10 assists.

time. “Being in the right spots creates those opportunities. Defending home court is big.” Holloway was less than thrilled with his team’s early defense when the Panthers were able to break free for four easy fastbreak layups in taking a 13-8 first-quarter lead. “We were just out there, we lost guys and didn’t know exactly where we were supposed to be,” Holloway said. “We talked about that at halftime and I think got it straightened out better.” The Buffs got strong efforts from a variety of players, but junior Bo Banner came up big, too, scoring 10 points and grabbing five rebounds. Junior Austin Terpstra duplicated those numbers, making 3-of-5 field goals and 4-of-6 at the line. Great Bend got a game-high 20 points from Jace Bowman, including four 3-pointers. The

Panthers’ long-range bombers were 7-of-15 for the game behind the arc. The Panthers, though, were only 5-of-12 at the free throw line. Both teams committed 14 turnovers in the game. Great Bend falls to 5-10 overall and 1-4 in the WAC. ———

nine turnovers in the opening half which was mirrored exactly by the Lady Panthers. Garden jumped off to an early 7-2 lead and Great Bend (2-15, 1-4) responded to tie it at 7 before Taryn Tempel’s driving layup with 3 seconds left in the first period made it 9-7. Then, it was Great Bend’s turn, getting 3point baskets from Regan
Unruh and McKenna Mauler to put the Lady Panthers on top, 15-11, midway through the second. Tempel then answered with a 3-point bucket from the right wing, and added a traditional 3-point play with 2:05 to go on another driving layup and a free throw. That made it 17-15 at the break. Tempel finished with a game-high 17 points and Kristen Heiman added 12 to pace the Lady Buffs.
Crosby scored nine points to lead Great Bend’s scoring. The turnovers mostly cancelled each other out, Great Bend with 22 and Garden City with 21. In the team’s earlier meeting in Great Bend, the Lady Buffs managed to survive a cold-shooting night to prevail, 45-41. ——— Great Bend 7 8 0 16 — 31 Garden City 9 8 13 7 — 37 Great Bend (31) — Schneider 0-4 0-0 0, Bayse 0-5 3-3 3, Henning 0-0 0-1 0, Hildebrand 0-0 0-0 0, Kel.

Honor: Broncs celebrate ‘02 boys title team Continued from Page D1
Scott City in the third game of that season. Coach Roger Reed, two assistant coaches, nine seniors and three juniors comprised the team now immortalized in Lakin lore. “All the pieces were there,” Reed said. “I felt for a couple of years that there was that potential with that team. We had good height, good size, good quickness, two excellent guards. If you were trying to hand pick a team, those were all the elements that you would want.” The pressure of going undefeated was there, he said, but sometime into the season he gave the team back some control in the locker room and gave up some of the strict rules he was used to doing. That seemed to keep the guys loose. As long as they worked hard on the court, he said, he gave them more autonomy off it. “I coached 30 years at the high school level, and I can honestly say I have never had as complete a team as that one with all the elements,” Reed said. After moving on to Andover and Andover Central, Reed said he coached a few more seasons, but now he’s just fine being a high school counselor in Circle. But he remembers well the great crowds from his Lakin days. Crowd support was great during that season, he added. It was always good, but that year it was especially hard to find a seat, even in Lakin’s
much-larger newer gym. Senior Jarrod King had said 10 years ago in the school annual, “Coming into this year, there were very high expectations from everyone included in the program. Anything less than a state title is considered a failure.” Derek Ramos added, “When we were growing up we had a lot of hype. I remember when I was younger, everyone was telling me that if we stick to it, we would be the best team to come out of Lakin.” Team members honored included Quint Ana, Brady Fuller, King, Ramos, Cris Bird, Nate Woodrow, Bo Richardson, Nick Hall, Tyler Riedl (all seniors on that squad), Deven Hammerschmidt, Jess Holmes and Carlen Collins (juniors). Joining Reed were former coach Larry Dasenbrock and current girls coach Shawn Michaelis, who was in his second year at Lakin then. Dasenbrock’s sons Kyle and Kevin (currently a junior with the Broncs) were the ball boys. Jake Edgington, Sklyer McKinley and Michael Bowser were the student managers.
Game rewind Brady Fuller’s opening tip and a 7-0 run got Lakin off to a quick start. A Jarrod King 3-pointer gave them a 17-8 lead at one point before settling for a 19-12 lead at the end of the opening period. Lakin hit a snag in the second
period, going scoreless for the first 2:40, while Beloit cut the lead down to five. Ramos and Hammerschmidt scored the last seven points of the half and Lakin led 23-23 at the break. Beloit tied the game with an 8-3 run to open the second half. It was tied again at 48-48 with 3:10 left in the game. With the team rattled somewhat by the atmosphere and the pressure, Reed said he told the team “to calm down, keep their pose and show the character that got them here. With three minutes left, Fuller hit a three “from Yoder,” as television announcer Rick Thomaczek called it at the time. It was first eyeballed at 23 feet but later revised to 26. Fuller finished the Lakin scoring by hitting 1-of-2 free throws with 17 seconds left. Ramos grabbed a final rebound and threw to Fuller to run out the clock. Fuller told the Lakin Independent after the game, “Our crowd was a big key for us all year. When things would go good, they would be cheering, and even when things didn’t go so good their cheers would help motivate us to pull us through, as was the case tonight.” “This was the most mentally tough team I have ever coached,” Reed said after that game. “They all worked hard, not just the starters but the reserves. I can’t say enough about this bunch of men.”
Lakin shot just 17of-55 from the floor, but Elkhart was cold as well, shooting only 14-of48, and the Broncs won the battle of the boards 39-23. Simmons and Karlee Davidson led Lakin with eight points each, while Elkhart (8-9) was led by Lacy Bookstore with 10, all from the field. It just wasn’t the Wildcats’ night, though the effort was there, coach Lorrie Wright said. “We’ve been improving and working together well. Tonight I felt like we just couldn’t hit a basket. If we would have had just one person hot, it would have been a whole different story,” Wright said. Nineteen turnovers didn’t help the cause much, either, but Wright said that’s something they’ve dealt with all season. For Lakin coach Shawn Michaelis, this was another close but welcome win. “Our girls play hard from start to finish,” he said. “It comes down to making key plays, and they’ve been doing that better lately.” This win was a total team effort, he said, especially since nobody really had a hot hand. “We’ve been playing better here lately. You always want to be playing your best this close to substate. So far we’ve been taking steps in that direction. We just need to keep doing that,” Michaelis said.

Elkhart 46 On the boys’ side, maybe a little halftime inspiration from the 2002 boys championship team ceremony got the Broncs on the right track as they overcame a six-point deficit to grab a 52-46 win over the Wildcats. Lakin took advantage of some poor shooting from the Wildcats in the third quarter (one early free throw and two late field goals) to pull to within two at that break. Then they outscored Elkhart 20-12 in the final
quarter to get the comeback win. Bryant Miller led the Lakin charge with 16 of his game-high 20 points in the second half, including three 3-pointers. Cole Parks led all scorers with 23 points, including 10 in the second to give Elkhart its lead. Alex Gomez added 11. Broncs coach Steve Davidson said a more intense defense and more aggressive offense in the second half turned things around for his team, especially in a game that had seven ties and 16 lead changes. “It was one of those games where you’re never comfortable, by any means. But I think we turned it up defensively and with rebounding in the second half.” Elkhart’s defense had his Broncs standing around too much in the first half, Davidson said, so they made adjustments at halftime. The adjustments seemed to work. Lakin also outrebounded a taller Elkhart team 32-22, 18 of those in the second half. In that critical third quarter meltdown by Elkhart, Davidson said all the Broncs had to do was step up the defensive intensity. “We were allowing them to get shots off easily in the first half, so we changed our intensity,” he said. “They were missing some easy shots, but hopefully it’s because we were attacking them more.” Khris Buckner said his team’s third-quarter shooting woes have been occurring the past few games and he’s not sure what the answer is. “When we’re on, we’re on. When we’re not, we miss a lot of baskets, especially underneath with a lot of ‘gimmes’ and put-backs,” he said. “That really hurts. We missed 12 or 14 tonight three feet or closer.” Despite the low shooting output (16-of-47), Buckner credits his team (8-9, 2-5) with playing hard the entire game. “But it’s the little things that we’re not doing, and Lakin did it. Give the credit to them,” he said. Lakin is now 7-10 (4-3 in league play) and will face Deerfield tonight in the second annual Kearny County Shootout. ——— Elkhart 12 17 5 12 — 46 Lakin 12 11 9 20 — 52 Elkhart (46) — Gomez 4 1-2 11, Coen 1 2-2 4, Parks 7 4-5 20, Winger 1 1-3 3, Harbour 2 0-0 5, Moreno 1 0-0 3.

After loss, Murray St. must regroup quickly By COLIN FLY
AP Sports Writer
Murray State coach Steve Prohm wishes he could take back one thing he said following the ninth-ranked Racers’ first loss of the season. “We’re having an amazing run is what I would’ve loved to have said instead of ‘we had,”’ Prohm told The Associated Press on Friday. “We’re 23-1. We’re in first place in our conference. We’re ranked in the top 10 in the country in two different polls. “We’re in the top 50 in RPI. We’re having an amazing run, and we’ve got a lot more basketball to play.” Prohm said his challenge following Thursday night’s 72-68 loss to Tennessee State is to lift up his disappointed team quickly. The Racers play Austin Peay (9-17, 6-6 Ohio Valley Conference) on Saturday night. “The games come quick, so you’ve got to learn from it, get bet-
ter and be ready to play because you don’t want to bring one loss to make two,” Prohm said. “You want to get back on the winning track as soon as possible.” Murray State guard Jewuan Long said he felt Racers “let a lot of people down in life” after losing for the first time this season. “We enjoyed being undefeated, we enjoyed going into every game trying to get an extra win. We enjoyed the run,” Long said. “If anything, it’s just going to make us more hungry, more focused, and we’ll be ready to go by Saturday and every other game. “We don’t want to have this feeling again, so we want to do whatever it takes to not have this feeling.” Murray State can’t afford to have that feeling again, at least not too many times. The Racers need one more conference victory to clinch at least a tie for
first place. The OVC’s top two teams get automatic byes into the conference tournament semifinals. While Murray state has three wins over opponents in the RPI’s top 100, the school’s own RPI continues to fall due to a lack of quality opponents coming up. The Ohio Valley Conference hasn’t sent two teams to the tournament since 1987 even though the conference representative has won its first game in each of the last three seasons, including Murray State’s victory over Vanderbilt in 2010. Racers forward Ivan Aska isn’t too concerned. “In a way, (I’m) glad we lost ahead of time than way in the tournament or somewhere,” he said. After playing the Governors, Murray State (23-1, 11-1) travels to Southeast Missouri State on Wednesday before hosting No. 16 St. Mary’s on Saturday in the marquee BracketBuster game on national television.
They’ll continue to rely on point guard Isaiah Canaan, who scored 31 points against Tennessee State. The Racers built a 13-point second-half lead against the Tigers before it crumbled with poor play down the stretch and several mistakes in the final minute. Prohm said he’s disappointed they couldn’t close out the Tigers with a big lead, but that he expects his team to be ready to go beginning with a late afternoon practice Friday before facing the Governors Saturday night. “It’s an important game, because the undefeated streak is great, but our first goal is to win a conference championship. It was never to go undefeated,” Prohm said. “You just hate the fairy tale to end because of what it was doing to this community, the exposure for this university with just so many flocking to the great little town of Murray. “It was awesome.”

Wi opens up 3-shot lead at Pebble, Tiger sits six back PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) — On a day when sunshine gave way to a light rain, two things stayed the same Friday at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Charlie Wi was still atop the leaderboard, and Tiger Woods didn’t hole enough putts to make up ground. Wi escaped most of the rain at Pebble Beach, where he holed a wedge from the 13th fairway for eagle and limited the damage to a bogey on his final hole for a 3-under 69 that allowed him to open a three-shot lead. Dustin Johnson was caught off guard by the rain in the worst way. He stood in the fourth fairway at Spyglass with a short-sleeve shirt, hands thrust in his pocket, as his caddie sent a friend running up the hill to the parking lot to retrieve his rain gear. His short game let him down, and the two-time Pebble champion had to settle for a 72 that put him three back. Padraig Harrington had a 66 at Pebble Beach and was among those tied for third. Harrington had five birdies in a six-hole stretch early in his round, the exception coming at the par-5 sixth. Woods, meanwhile, again looked poised to make a move over at Monterey Peninsula. He missed a 5-foot birdie putt on No. 9 and failed to make birdie on the par-5 10th when he pulled his second shot into the gallery. He had to settle for a 2-under 68, leaving him six behind. Along the way, he stung his wrist hitting out of a divot and said
Charlie Wi follows his shot off the 17th tee of the Pebble Beach Golf Links during the second round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament on Friday in Pebble Beach, Calif. he had to pop it back into the joint. “No big deal,” he said. The bigger deal was putting. Woods took 33 putts on the Shore Course, which he attributed to leaving the ball in the wrong spot — mostly above the hole — and struggling with greens he felt were getting slightly more bumpy as a mist turned into a light rain. “It’s very close,” said Woods, playing this event for the first time in 10 years. “I got my ballstriking to where I feel very comfortable hitting the shots. I just need to make a couple of putts to get on a roll.” Phil Mickelson struggled in sunshine. In rain, he ran off five birdies for a 65 at Monterey
Peninsula that put him five shots behind. “I don’t know what happened, but I started to play a lot better and make some birdies,” said Mickelson, a threetime winner at Pebble. “In the perfect conditions, I struggled. But to play these golf courses in such great condition either way has been a lot of fun.” Wi was at 12-under 130 and now heads to Spyglass Hill, which has played slightly tougher than the other two courses. In these shifting conditions, Spyglass played about two shots harder than it did Thursday, while Pebble Beach and Monterey Peninsula were about one shot more difficult than the day before.
Only 56 players broke par, compared with 87 in the opening round. That would explain what was going through Wi’s mind when he set off at Pebble Beach, knowing the course gave up a pair of 63s in the opening round. It sure didn’t feel that easy. “I thought Pebble played really difficult today,” Wi said. “The greens were very firm, and the guys that shot 8 or 9 under out there, I was very surprised how well they played. Some of the pins were really tricky. I said, ‘Gosh, how did they shoot 9 under out there?’ And for me to shoot 3 under today, I was very pleased.” Wi figured it out toward the end of the way, as the light rain
swept over the peninsula. During the practice round, he hit a driver and a 9-iron on the ninth hole. It was his final hole Friday, and he hit a driver and a hybrid. That didn’t work out so well. He pulled his approach into a crevice of thick rough, chopped out over the green and only a good pitch to tapin range helped him avoid something worse than a bogey. Vijay Singh had a 68 at Spyglass Hill and Brian Gay had a 65 at Monterey Peninsula to join Harrington among those at 8-under par. Hunter Mahan, fresh off his one-week journey to the Middle East for the Qatar Masters, had a 70 at Pebble Beach and was in the group at 7-under par, along with Mickelson. Woods looked sharp at times, drilling a 5-iron to 7 feet for birdie on the opening hole, narrowly missing an 8-foot eagle attempt at No. 6 and making a second straight birdie on the par-3 seventh from about 15 feet. But he didn’t make up any ground, losing one shot to par compared with the leaders. Next up for Woods is Pebble Beach, where he usually plays his best. Woods still remembers the 63-64 weekend in 1997, when he finished one shot behind Mark O’Meara. Woods also had a 64 in the final round of 2000 to rally from five shots behind. He has three rounds of 64 or better on the fabled course during the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. The last time he played Pebble Beach was the U.S. Open in 2010,
where he bogeyed five of his opening 10 holes to fall out of contention. His game was in disrepair at the time. It now is on an upward swing, and the putting is all that controls how quickly he gets back. “I’m hitting good putts,” Woods said. “I’m not displeased with my putting at all. I just didn’t hit the ball in the right spots to give myself the right looks. If we were putting smooth greens, it would be a totally different deal.” Johnson was tied for the lead with backto-back birdies to close out the back nine at Spyglass. He bogeyed the par-3 third from about 12 feet away just behind the green, then three-putted for bogey at the par-3 fifth. “I played really well yesterday. I played good today,” Johnson said. “I just (threw) away some shots. I hit some poor pitch shots, just really bad. They weren’t even pitch shots. They were dink chips, ones that you’re trying to hole. And I just hit them terrible.” Johnson will have a chance to make up ground Today at Monterey Peninsula, which has produced the lowest scores this week. Woods, meanwhile, settles in at Pebble Beach with the celebrity rotation, the day that CBS Sports typically spends as much time on the antics of actors and comedians as the golfers. That shouldn’t be a big distraction, though. Woods tees off early on the back nine, away from all the action.

Business Briefs Exhibitors sought for airshow The Kansas Department of Commerce and the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition will sponsor the “Kansas Pavilion” during the Farnborough International Airshow, which is set for July 9 to 15 in Farnborough, England. The pavilion will give Kansas aviation-related businesses a chance to showcase their products and services at one of the world’s largest aerospace shows. “This is a major event in the aviation world,” Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George said. “The pavilion will offer exhibitors a unique and cost-effective way to explore global business opportunities. There are tremendous opportunities for companies to enter or expand into foreign markets.” The Farnborough exhibition will attract more than 120,000 industry visitors. Deals worth $47 billion were announced at the last show in 2010. Kansas exported more than $10.6 billion worth of goods and services for 2011 (through November), one of the highest annual levels on record for the state. The number one export product for Kansas was aircraft and parts. “Our export activity is increasing substantially, especially in the aviation sector, and it’s really helping Kansas recover from the recession,” George said. “We want the highest level of participation possible at Farnborough.” Participation in the Kansas Pavilion includes: • Individual exhibit space for participating private sector partners. • Use of private and open conference/meeting facilities and the U.S. Exhibitors’ Lounge. • Pre-show, on-site and post-show assistance, including market research, setting business appointments, follow-up meetings and export counseling. • Special assistance, as needed, for on-site support provided by Department trade staff. The deadline to apply to exhibit is March 1. The department’s application form is available online at KansasCommerce. com/trade under “Farnborough Airshow 2012.” Applications should be mailed, faxed or emailed to: Larry Childs, Kansas Department of Commerce Trade Division, 1000 SW Jackson St., Suite 100, Topeka, KS 66612; lchilds@kansascommerce. com; or faxed to (785) 2963490. For more information, contact Childs at (785) 296-6273 or Tammy Nolan, Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition, (316) 268-1128, tnolan@ gwedc.org.
Black Hills Energy upgrading meters Black Hills Energy will deliver more efficient service to southwest Kansas by expanding its Automated Meter Reading system to 33,000 of the company’s natural gas customers in the area. There is no direct charge to the customer for the AMR upgrade. Black Hills representa-
tives currently are equipping meters in Garden City, Liberal and 10 other towns in the region with a small transmitter to efficiently and effectively send monthly meter readings to a passing company vehicle using harmless radio waves. The contractors will upgrade service to Dodge City next, with the project scheduled for completion in May. “We are making significant investments in our Kansas natural gas system to automate the meter reading process,” southwest Kansas gas operations manager Lon Meyer said. “This technology increases operational efficiencies and improves the service that we provide to our customers. With AMR, utility workers no longer need access to a customer’s property each month to read the meters. Locked gates and protective pets no longer block the path to an accurate reading, which translates to an accurate monthly statement.” Transmitter installation does not require a service interruption in most cases. About 650 of the 33,000 meters must be exchanged, requiring a brief service interruption and indoor access to relight pilots on gas appliances, water heaters and furnaces. Those customers will receive a letter describing the appointment process. The project’s scope makes it practical to again have utility contractor Kore Services complete the installations. “Kore demands the same dedication to safety and customer service of its employees as we do,” Meyer said. Kore employees wear a “BHE Contractor” safety vest and carry identification provided by Black Hills. Their vehicles will carry “Contractor For Black Hills Energy” signs. The company previously introduced the more efficient service to 65,000 Black Hills customers in Lawrence and Wichita. With completion of the southwest Kansas project, virtually all 110,000 Black Hills Energy-Kansas Gas customers in 56 Kansas communities will benefit from the more efficient, accurate meter reading that AMR provides. Outside Garden City and Liberal, installers have been or will be visiting Copeland, Elkhart, Fowler, Hugoton, Meade, Moscow, Plains, Rolla, Satanta and Sublette. Customers with questions can call Black Hills Energy’s 24-hour Customer Service Center toll-free at (888) 890-5554. Information also is available at www.blackhillsenergy.com/customers/amr.

Wheatfields shopper wins $500 Lexi Billinger never guessed that her trip home to Garden City would end with winning a $500 wardrobe from downtown Garden City’s Wheatfields On Main. Wheatfields On Main participated in the company-sponsored $500 wardrobe giveaway by Conrad C held throughout the United States and Canada. Entries for a chance to win are made online with a special entry number found on each Conrad C garment or from free cards given away throughout the fall season. With over 200 entries to give away, Wheatfields On Main had a laptop set up for people to enter to win during the ‘Girls Night Out’ event and continued to hand out entries up to the day last the contest in December. While Christmas shopping with her family at Wheatfields On Main, Billinger, her mother, Lee Ann Shrader, and grandmother, Patsy Haga, all were given entries. After returning to work in Kansas City, Billinger received a phone message from Quebec, Canada, announcing her as a winner. Of the 10 names listed on the company’s website, Billinger is the only winner in the state of Kansas. She also was one of only four winners in the United States; all other winners resided in Canada. Shonda Collins, owner of Wheatfields On Main, knew it was a long shot to have a winner from all the stores in Canada and the United States. “I kept encouraging people to enter the contest. I knew someone would win and it might as well be someone from Garden City, Kansas.”

Delgado nabs McDonald’s award Garden City is home to one of the nation’s top McDonald’s restaurant managers. Berenice Delgado recently received the Ray Kroc Award, an annual performance-based award that recognizes the top performing McDonald’s restaurant managers in the country. Named after McDonald’s Corporation founder Ray Kroc, the award was established in 1999 to honor hardworking restaurant managers — those who make Kroc’s vision of excellence come to life in restaurants and for customers each day. A select 140 managers were chosen this year to receive the Ray Kroc Award, an honor that comes with a cash prize, a Ray Kroc award trophy,
ring and pin, and a trip to Chicago for an awards gala hosted by McDonald’s USA President, Jan Fields. “This is a great accomplishment in my career with McDonald’s,” said Ray Kroc Award winner and Garden City McDonald’s Store Manager Berenice Delgado. “I know I couldn’t have done it without my management team, crew and everyone who supports me.” Delgado joined McDonald’s as a crew member in December 2002. After working as a shift manager and assistant manager, she was promoted to store manager at the Garden City McDonald’s on Kansas Avenue in 2007. She was instrumental in the rebuild of the Kansas Avenue restaurant and was awarded McDonald’s Manager of the Year in 2009 and 2010. Delgado actively supports her community by hosting McTeacher’s Nights for local schools, RMHC fundraisers, and other local events at her restaurant. “It is an honor to have Berenice win the Ray Kroc Award, as she is one of only two to receive it in the state of Kansas this year,” said Garden City McDonald’s Owner/ Operator Ed Milligan. McDonald’s owner/ operators and/or regional staff nominate restaurant managers for the Ray Kroc Award to recognize their hard work, dedication and commitment to McDonald’s. From there, a selection committee of representatives from McDonald’s Operations, Training and Human Resources select the top 1 percent of McDonald’s restaurant managers for the Ray Kroc Award.

THE GARDEN CITY TELEGRAM
Obama call for manufacturing revival a tough goal WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is making a strong electionyear push for an economic revival “built on American manufacturing.” But he faces an uphill slog, with little consensus even within his own party on how to do it. For decades, the United States has gradually shifted from creating goods to providing services. Fifty years ago, a third of U.S. jobs were in manufacturing. Now they account for just 9 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. A manufacturing renaissance is being preached from the White House, on the GOP campaign trail and in Super Bowl commercials. Economists suggest plans to help boost manufacturing jobs may make more political sense than economic sense. Obama’s prescription for a manufacturing comeback will be fleshed out in the new budget he submits on Monday. He is proposing tax incentives to companies that move their overseas operations back to the United States, along with tax penalties for those that don’t, more training and additional education. But few of his ideas are likely to be enacted in this highly-charged election year. Since the recession offi-
President Barack Obama speaks in the East Room of the White House in Washington on Jan. 13. Obama is making a strong election-year push for an economic revival “built on American manufacturing.” But he faces an uphill slog, with little consensus even within his own party on how to do it. cially ended nearly 2 1/2 years ago, manufacturing production has increased 15 percent, helped by the replacement of aging equipment and software and strong demand from foreign markets. But Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress this week that the rebound might not last: “More recently, the pace of growth in busi-
ness investment has slowed, likely reflecting concerns about both the domestic outlook and developments in Europe.” There are political overtones to Obama’s State of the Union appeal for “an economy that’s built to last, an economy built on American manufacturing.” Polls show support for the president has slipped in Rust
Belt battleground states he won in 2008. Helping manufacturers recover is also being talked up by Republican presidential contenders, who all blame Obama’s policies for contributing to the decline. Former Sen. Rick Santorum wants to eliminate the U.S. corporate tax completely for manufacturers, saying it would help put “men and women in this country who built this country back to work.” Mitt Romney’s get-tough rhetoric on China appears to be winning attention from workers and former workers in industries that have lost jobs to China. The former Massachusetts governor promises “to make America a more attractive place for manufacturers to invest.” Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says we “badly need to rebuild our manufacturing base,” promoting job creation in the defense, energy and space industries. This heavy attention on manufacturing may be misplaced, economists suggest. “The vast majority of jobs in the future are going to be created in the service sector, not the manufacturing sector,” said Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist for the consulting firm IHS Global
Insight. He said he thought it was “a bit misleading” to focus so much on manufacturing. Obama’s plan would: • Prevent U.S. companies from deducting moving expenses when they shift production overseas, while offering a 20 percent moving-expense tax credit for businesses returning to the U.S. • Establish a new trade enforcement unit. • Modify a tax credit for domestic production to make it apply more narrowly to manufacturing. • Extend $5 billion in new tax credits for clean-energy companies. • Reduce the nominal maximum 35 percent corporate tax, most likely taking it down to the high 20s. He also may propose a minimum tax on overseas profits. Obama also has called for a minimum 30 percent tax rate on annual incomes of more than $1 million. Business interests claim it could harm small and medium-sized manufacturers who file tax returns as individuals. Obama’s sharp focus on reviving manufacturing isn’t shared by all Democrats. “Let’s not fool ourselves. We’re not going to have the kind of manufacturing-
based economy we had 30 or 40 years ago,” says Robert Reich, labor secretary under President Bill Clinton. And Christina Romer, who headed the president’s Council of Economic Advisers from 2009-10, says it is wrong to suggest that producing “real things” is more important than “services.” “American consumers value health care and haircuts as much as washing machines and hair dryers. Our earnings from exporting architectural plans for a building in Shanghai are as real as those from exporting cars to Canada,” she wrote. Jay Timmons, president of the National Association of Manufacturers, said his organization agrees with Obama in part, that “manufacturers are poised for a renaissance.” “The good news is everybody is talking about manufacturing today. Even on the Super Bowl, you saw ad after ad referring to the promise and the potential of manufacturing in America,” he said. The bad news? It is still “20 percent more expensive to manufacture in the United States than it is anywhere else in the world,” Timmons said. Obama supporters argue his proposals would help make U.S. factories more competitive.
