Trump wins big in S. Carolina; Clinton takes Nevada


Q However, primary marks the end for Jeb Bush who withdraws from race.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a South Carolina Republican primary night event on Saturday in Spartanburg, S.C. Trump is the winner in the South Carolina Republican primary.


COLUMBIA, S.C. – Donald Trump barreled to victory in South Carolina’s Republican primary Saturday, deepening his hold on the GOP presidential field as the race moved into the South. “Let’s put this thing away,” he shouted to cheering supporters. Out West, Hillary Clinton pulled out a crucial win over Bernie Sanders in Nevada’s Democratic caucuses, easing the rising anxieties of her backers. At a raucous victory rally in Las Vegas, she lavished praise on her supporters and declared, “This one is for you.” The victories put Clinton and Trump in strong positions as the 2016 presidential election barreled toward the March 1 Super Tuesday contests, a delegate-rich voting bonanza. But South Carolina marked the end for Jeb Bush, the one-time Republican front-runner and member of a prominent political family, who withdrew from the race. “I firmly believe the American people must entrust this office to someone who understands that whoever holds it is a servant, not the master,” Bush told supporters in an emotional speech. Trump’s strong showing in South Carolina marked his second straight victory in the Republican primaries and strengthened his unexpected claim on the GOP nomination. No Republican in recent times has won New Hampshire and South Carolina and then failed to win the nomination. “There’s nothing easy about running for president,” Trump said at his victory rally. “It’s tough, it’s nasty, it’s mean, it’s vicious. It’s beautiful – when you win it’s beautiful.” Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, a pair of freshman senators, were fighting for second place, while Bush and others lagged far behind. “This has become a three-person race,” Rubio declared. For both parties, the 2016 election has laid bare voters’ anger with the political establishment and the influence of big money in the political system. The public mood has upended the usual political order, giving Sanders and Trump openings while leaving more traditional candidates scrambling to find their footing. Trump’s victory comes after a week in which he threatened to sue one rival, accused former President George W. Bush of lying about the Iraq war and even tussled with Pope Francis on immigration. His victory

WORLD British leader sets EU referendum for June 23, A8 Battle over text messaging privacy heats up, C6 One killed, three injured in shooting after standoff, A7 NYPD officers shot in confrontation with gunman NEW YORK Two police officers were shot in a confrontation with a gunman who slammed his car into a police vehicle early Saturday, in the second on-duty shooting of multiple officers in the nation’s biggest city this month, police said. Officers William Reddin and Andrew Yurkiw were in stable condition after the 3:30 a.m. encounter, which happened as multiple officers converged and fired at an armed driver who had pointed a gun at some of the officers, fled and then rammed a police car, Police Commissioner William Bratton said. Police were investigating how many officers fired and the exact sequence of events, including whether police themselves fired any of the shots that injured their colleagues. It’s standard for polce shooting investigations to look into the possibility of what’s known as “friendly fire,” and Saturday’s shooting unfolded in what Bratton described as “a complex crime scene” involving eight officers and suspect Jamal Funes. Mayor Bill de Blasio said Yurkiw and Reddin were alert and expected to recover.

Uganda’s Yoweri Museveni wins disputed polls KAMPALA, Uganda – Long-time Ugandan leader Yoweri Museveni was on Saturday declared the winner of the country’s disputed presidential election, but his main rival rejected the results as fraudulent and called for an independent audit of the count. Museveni got more than 60 percent of the votes, and his nearest rival Kizza Besigye got 35 percent, according to final results announced by the election commission. Besigye was under house arrest as Museveni was declared the winner, with heavily armed police standing guard near his residence on the outskirts of the capital, Kampala. In a video obtained by The Associated Press, Besigye said he rejects the results. Besigye urged the international community to reject the official tally.

Trump was backed by nearly 4 in 10 of those who were angry at the federal government, and a third of those who felt betrayed by politicians in the Republican Party. For Cruz, even a second-place finish in South Carolina would be something of a disappointment. The state was his first test of whether his expensive, sophisticated get-out-the-vote operation could overtake

Trump in a Southern state, where the electorate is tailor-made for the uncompromising conservative Texas senator. Florida’s Rubio was seeking to position himself as the mainstream alternative to Trump and Cruz, candidates many GOP leaders believe are unelectable in November. Rubio scored the endorsements of several prominent South Carolina politicians, including Gov. Nikki Haley, overcoming a dismal debate performance two weeks ago. South Carolina was a

bitter disappointment for Bush, who campaigned alongside members of his famous family, which remains popular in the state. Though he was once considered the front-runner for the GOP nomination, new fundraising reports out Saturday showed that donations to his super PAC had largely stalled. Also in the mix was Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who had low expectations in South Carolina and was looking toward more moderate states that vote later in March. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson vowed to stay in the race, despite a single-digit showing. The crowded Republican contest was a contrast to the head-to-head face-off among Democrats. Clinton has emerged a favorite of those seeking an experienced political hand, while Sanders is emerging young voters and others drawn to his call of a political and economic revolution. The Nevada results highlighted Clinton’s strength with black voters, a crucial Democratic electorate in the next contest in South Carolina, as well as several Super Tuesday states. The Hispanic vote was closely divided between Sanders and Clinton.

Trump, Cruz, Rubio in hunt for delegates in Kansas caucuses BY JOHN HANNA AP Political Writer

OVERLAND PARK – Kansas Republicans who gathered Saturday for their biggest annual convention wondered whether Ted Cruz’s support among tea party conservatives or Marco Rubio’s backing from top politicians can prevent Donald Trump from capturing the state’s GOP presidential caucuses. Rubio emerged as the candidate of the state party’s establishment after Gov. Sam Brownback and U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts endorsed the Florida senator. But Republican activists said Trump, the billionaire New York businessman, and Cruz, a Texas senator, already enjoyed solid support when Rubio picked up his endorsements. The Kansas GOP’s two-day convention in the Republicanleaning Kansas City suburb of Overland Park came two weeks before March 5 presidential caucuses for both parties. Republicans will caucus at more than 100 sites across the state to allocate 40 delegates to the party’s national convention. The state party is controlled by anti-tax, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage and pro-gun rights conservatives. Kansas proved itself a right-leaning contrarian in 2008 and 2012, with caucus-goers giving victories to ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and

former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum over eventual nominees John McCain and Mitt Romney. “Kansas Republicans do not accept moderate and establishment candidates,” said Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a former state party chairman who’s not endorsed any presidential candidate. The state GOP set the caucuses so that they’ll occur only four days after Super Tuesday contests in 12 other states, and party officials are prepared for as many as 60,000 people to participate. Every Republican presidential nominee after 1964 has carried the state. Kansas Democrats will be choosing March 5 between former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, but seven candidates will be on the GOP ballot. Joining Cruz, Rubio and Trump are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and former technology executive Carly Fiorina. Fiorina and Bush have both suspended their campaigns. Only supporters for Rubio, Cruz and Trump had tables at the Kansas GOP’s gathering, and party activists repeatedly described them as the candidates likely to pick up delegates. Republicans acknowledged that Trump’s populist message and brash style resonate with some GOP voters. Jim

Baker, Trump’s state director, said Trump is appealing to a broad cross section of voters, including both conservative evangelicals and former Romney supporters. Les Roediger, a Mayetta resident recently laid off from a welding job, helped at the Trump table during the convention. He recalled handing out coins for 1964 GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater as a child and said Trump’s broad vision for a stronger nation is appealing. “He wants everything I want,” Roediger said. “He wants the country I had when I was a little kid.” Rubio supporters cited a variety of reasons Saturday for backing him, including his story as the son of immigrants or his experience with national security issues, but they also touted him as the most electable nationwide of the top three GOP candidates. But Rubio’s past support for immigration legislation that would have created a pathway to citizenship for immigrants living in the U.S. illegally has alienated some Kansas Republicans. Among them are Bud and Liz Schwindt of Whitewater, northeast of Wichita, who stopped by the Cruz table to sign up for campaign updates. But the couple also praised Cruz for being uncompromising. “He’s very honest,” Liz Schwindt said. “He can take a stand by himself.”

Landowner sues SandRidge over Harper Co. wastewater disposal BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News

A lawsuit against SandRidge Exploration by owners of land in Harper County who are upset that the Oklahoma-based producer has injected more than 1.5 million barrels of wastewater in wells on the property is now in federal court. The suit by Doce Limited Partnership, originally filed in Harper County District Court in January, seeks temporary and permanent injunctions against SandRidge, as well as more than $75,000 in damages. SandRidge issued notice this week it has removed the suit to the Federal District Court in Kansas City. A quarter section of farmland located about 1½ miles southeast of Anthony has been in lease to oil companies since 1977, according to the suit, before Walter E. Lydick Jr., of Jackson, Mississippi, the principal of Doce LP owned it. Doce LP then leased another quarter section adjacent to it on the south to a different producer in October 2010. SandRidge has owned the oil and gas leases on both properties since then. The property owner entered a “Voluntary Pooling and Unitization Agreement” with SandRidge on June 14, 2013, that allowed development of a horizontal well across both properties, the suit states. It then approved a right-of-way surface easement to the company for 3.1 acres for roads in and out of the property, and for “the right to drill and operate a saltwater disposal well or wells” on the land. The disposal well, called Astoria 3301 1-34 SWD, was completed around Nov. 30, 2013. SandRidge then completed producing hydraulically fractured horizontal wells

ONLINE View a map of Harper County that shows the Doce Limit land at on both parcels in April 2014. A year later, on April 14, 2015, SandRidge filed an application with the Kansas Corporation Commission seeking a permit to turn the second oil well into a saltwater disposal well. The landowner objected to the application. “When defendant responded to a plaintiff ’s discovery requests regarding the KCC application, plaintiff learned that in 2014, defendant had disposed of 1,077,107 barrels of off-lease or ‘foreign’ produced water in 2014, and 448,856 barrels of off-lease … water from January 2015 through May

2015 into the Astoria SWD Well.” SandRidge continues to dispose of thousands of gallons of water produced from at least 50 wells not on the Doce land into the Astoria well, the suit asserts. The 2013 disposal well easement does not mention disposal of off-lease or ‘foreign’ produced water on the Doce Unit, the suit contends, and argues it does not authorize SandRidge to dispose of water from other wells there. The suit alleges breach of contract, trespass and unjust enrichment by SandRidge. It seeks both damages and compensation for the water disposal. The district court granted SandRidge an extension to Feb. 18 to file an answer to the county suit, but Sandridge then got the case moved.

“It’s a sunshiney period of time for fashion.” Outfits were matched exceptionally well and had very polished looks, she said.

“It’s exceptional tailoring on clothing.” With women entering the workforce in previously unseen numbers, clothing companies found ways to make work clothes functional while retaining femininity, Hardenburger said.

Decades past inspire design dreams BY ADAM STEWART


The Hutchinson News

“I feel like my spirit and soul is in the ’20s.” Hardenburger loves what she sees as the decade’s artistic and ornate style.

When Julia Hardenburger wore a 1920s-style “flapper” outfit to Hutchinson High School for Halloween, her classmates didn’t realize it was a costume. “They thought that was just Julia being Julia,” Hardenburger said. She has a collection of clothes from the 1920s through the 1970s. She said she especially likes styles from the 1920s, but unlike most of the other decades she collects from, she has to rely on reproductions of original items. “I’d rather have an original piece than a reproduction, but I have a budget,” Hardenburger said. For as long as she can remember, Hardenburger, a high school junior, has been fascinated by the fashions of decades past. “My favorite place to go when I was a kid wasn’t the toy store, it was the antique store,” she said. She started with necklaces

1930s “The best part was the Hollywood glamour.” Despite the Great Depression, designers created beautiful gowns and reinvented the shapes of clothes, she said.

and other accessories, because she could actually wear them. When she grew enough that classic dresses and other clothes would fit her, she started collecting them as well. Hardenburger hopes

to take a similar leap in business. She has made and sold her own jewelry and accessories for several years, and she would like to have a career in fashion design. Her immediate goal is getting into Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia. She said she gets good reactions when she wears vintage styles. “People admire it, but they don’t know if they can pull it off,” she said. It can take time getting ready with an accurate look, but it isn’t as hard as some people think, Hardenburger said, because contemporary styles already borrow so much from older looks. Despite that, she said she has had more success getting people to try vintage accessories than full outfits. Hardenburger said her own collection includes more 1950s items than any other decade. That is partly because affordable pieces in good condition are easier to find than in earlier decades and partly because she can wear them a little bit more casually. Comfort wasn’t

Sweetwater Farms recalls sprout crop after Salmonella outbreak BY THE NEWS STAFF

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is recommending people not eat sprouts from Sweetwater Farms of Inman after five people in Kansas and three in Oklahoma have fallen ill with Salmonella after eating the sprouts. Sweetwater Farms was inspected and samples of irrigation water and product have tested positive for Salmonella bacteria although the strain has not yet been identified. Sweetwater Farms has decided to voluntarily recall sprouts in lot 042016. The last date of illness was Jan. 21 in a Kansas resident. KDHE is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration, Department of Agriculture and Oklahoma Department of Health to investigate the outbreak. Salmonella is estimated to cause 1 million foodborne illnesses in the United States, KDHE said in its announcement. Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection.

The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment. KDHE recommends that children, the elderly, pregnant women and people

with compromised immune systems avoid eating raw sprouts of any kind due to their potential to harbor harmful bacteria. Cooking sprouts kills any such bacteria.

given much thought in fashion design before the ‘50s, she said. As for current fashion, she said she likes it better than 1980s and ‘90s fashion, and she picks out favorite ideas from contemporary style for herself. “I acknowledge them (current trends) and take what I want from them,” Hardenburger said.

Kansas Cattle Drive debut has value for kids, stockmen BY ADAM STEWART The Hutchinson News

BUHLER – The first Kansas Cattle Drive showcase Saturday was a hit with stockmen and children alike, with business and networking opportunities for adults and educational activities for the kids. Cattle were set up in pens around Buhler High School, and inside there were exhibitor booths in the hallways, a series of speakers in the auditorium, FFA concessions and a “fun zone” for children. “All we need here is a Ferris wheel and we’d be like the state fair,” Ken Blew of Mount Hope joked. He said it can be tough to get attention for the 20 or so Angus cattle in the Blew’s Cattle herd, and Saturday was a good way to show them to other stockmen. “I think it’s good to try something different,” Blew said. “I hope it keeps growing. Who knows? They might have a sale with this” in a couple of years. Robby Gray of Hutchinson said the timing of the event was excellent, with cattle breeding coming up in the spring. Even if he didn’t make any sales Saturday, he considered it a marketing success. “They may not need a bull or heifer today, but they have your name in mind,” Gray said. Aubree McCurry, age 4, of Burrton, was at the even with her family, showing Angus heifers, and kept busy in the FFA fun zone, learning how to pull a calf and seeing friends.

Runners ready for 2nd Mine Run 5K Q Underground experience draws compliments, runners from as far as Canada. BY ADAM STEWART The Hutchinson News

While Strataca staff were calling for the next heat of runners to go into the Underground Salt Museum for a first-of-itskind fun run, Cara Burruss of Wichita was ready to commit to the 2017 Mine Run 5K. “I defiONLINE nitely More photos at would do it again,” multimedia Burruss said. “I will be here next year. “It was more fun than I thought it was going to be,” she added. She runs a few 5-kilometer (about 3-mile) runs every year, and when she heard about the Mine Run, she thought it sounded like a good alternative to the usual road races. “It was more challenging than a normal 5K,” she said. Burruss and several other runners said the uneven mine floor, occasional low ceilings, tight turns and corners, darkness and sightseeing slowed them down compared to a normal 5K. “But it’s an adventure run!” Burruss said. Adventurous enough for runners to take a 20-hour car trip for no other reason. Cathy Bowers, Les Mullen and Lance Waffle of Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, traveled to Hutchinson on Friday and prepared to return soon after the run. “Where else are you going to run in a salt mine?” Mullen said. Waffle said running in the inaugural Mine Run made it extra special. Strataca Director Mary Grace Clements said the museum is always looking for new, interactive fundraising opportunities, and the 5K fit the bill. The idea came from the success of the Tour de Salt bicycle tour of the mine. Strataca prominently advertised the mine’s constant 68-degree temperature while promoting the run. “I’ll be honest, we were hoping it would maybe be minus-3 degrees,” Clements said. Instead, Saturday’s weather was fine for running under the open sky, but runners Joe Biggerstaff and Kristi Stuhlsatz were happy for the guaranteed weather of the mine. Stuhlsatz has run a 5K every month for two years, and Biggerstaff has since joined her in the regular races. Last February their race went through 3 inches of snow. “We thought weatherwise this was perfect,” Stuhlsatz said. “It felt good.” Strataca is already preparing for its next special event in the mine. There will be an interactive murder mystery theater March 5.

Cancer centers alarmed over low number of HPV vaccinations Q Kansas ranks last in nation for percentage of girls who are inoculated. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The University of Kansas Cancer Center is joining nearly 70 other cancer centers in sounding an alarm about the high number of children who are not being vaccinated against a virus that causes cancer. Kansas ranks last in the nation in the percentage of girls who have received the HPV vaccine, and Missouri isn’t far behind. Fewer than half of girls in both states receive the vaccine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Both states also rank low for the number of boys who are vaccinated, The Kansas

City Star reported . “It absolutely breaks my heart,” says Terry Tsue, physician-in-chief at the University of Kansas Cancer Center. “We have two vaccines against cancers that are caused by virus, the hepatitis B vaccine and the HPV vaccine. Otherwise, we don’t have a vaccine that prevents cancer.” Tsue said he is stunned by what people don’t know about HPV and noted that roughly 70 percent of parents apparently don’t know that the vaccine is recommended for boys as well as girls. In addition to preventing so-called “female” cancers – cervical, vaginal, vulvar – the vaccine also prevents cancer of the throat, which three times as many men as women get from HPV, he said. Twenty percent of patients

with HPV-related throat cancers die within five years, he said. Eighty percent of men and women in the U.S. will be infected with at least one type of HPV at some time in their lives, he said. “Our practitioners aren’t aware of the magnitude and this kind of tsunami of cases,” said Tsue, a head and neck surgeon. “Throat cancer related to HPV is growing up to 5 percent a year. No other cancer is growing like that. And it will surpass cervical cancer caused by HPV by 2020.” Health professionals are battling misinformation and misconception among the public, Tsue said. Many parents mistakenly think HPV has something to do with HIV, while others equate the vaccine with sex because the virus is most commonly transmitted

Officer dead, 3 wounded in Mississippi after six-hour standoff ends in gunfire BY JEFF AMY AND REBECCA SANTANA Associated Press

JACKSON, Miss. – One law enforcement officer was killed and three were wounded early Saturday after a six-hour standoff at a rural Mississippi house ended when authorities stormed the house and the gunman inside opened fire, authorities said. Also killed was the man suspected of firing on the officers. The standoff started Friday afternoon when authorities responded to a domestic dispute call at the home in rural northeastern Mississippi, authorities said. But the man, holed up in his home with his wife and 10-year-old daughter, refused to come out, sparking a sixhour standoff with officers outside, said Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain. Strain said man wasn’t shooting at officers before they entered the house but they had tried to talk with him for six hours and had fundamentally exhausted negotiations. The woman and child were rescued, said Strain. But the man was killed after he opened fire as tactical teams entered the home. Multiple police agencies remained on the scene Saturday afternoon at the one-story house in sparsely populated woods in Tishomingo County. Killed were James Lee Tartt, 44, who was a Mississippi narcotics agent, and suspected gunman Charles Lee Lambert, who was 45. The high-powered rifle Lambert used was also recovered from inside the house. Tartt’s family described him as a dedicated officer who had spent most of his career battling drugs. “He was just a really good guy, and he wanted to make the world a better place. Ever since I’ve known him he has always been the type who would do anything to make the world a better place,” said Julia Criss Tartt, the aunt of the slain officer. Her husband, Don Tartt, who is the slain officer’s uncle, said Lee Tartt and his

They had married about a year ago, said Don Tartt, adding that Lee Tartt’s new wife had two children who became his stepchildren when they married. Last fall Lee Tartt ran for sheriff in Grenada county but lost to an incumbent, said his aunt. The slain officer was raised in Mississippi and was a “country boy” who loved to fish and hunt, said Don Tartt. In addition to his work as a narcotics agent Lee was also part of an area SWAT team that would respond to situations like the Friday night standoff. Don Tartt said his daughter is Donna Tartt, the author who has written such books as “The Secret History” and “The Goldfinch,” and she was a cousin of the slain officer. “Lee has always been a kind of dedicated kid,” said Don Tartt. “It’s just sad that he had to meet the end like he did, but when you’re in law enforcement you have to expect that.” Three state troopers who entered the home were wounded. The most seriously wounded officer was out of surgery Saturday and in critical but stable condition at a hospital in Corinth, said Strain. The other two officers were in fair condition at hospitals in Memphis and Tupelo, Strain said.

sexually. It also can be transmitted without sexual contact. Parents have responded to polls by saying their children don’t need the vaccine because their children aren’t having sex. Some also believe that having their children vaccinated will somehow give them free rein to have sex or will promote promiscuity,

though studies have shown that’s not the case. “So your 10-year-old who has no idea what the shot they’re getting is will subsequently go out and have sex the next week because they got a shot that prevents the HPV virus?” says Tsue. “That’s (what) we’re dealing with.” Fear of the vaccine’s safety

is among the most frequent reasons parents give for not having their children vaccinated, according to a study in Pediatrics in 2013. The medical community considers the vaccine one of the safest around. “All this bad press about vaccines, how it kills people, how it causes autism, all false,” says Tsue.

British PM sets June 23 for historic referendum Q Cameron urges country to remain in the European Union.

British Prime Minister David Cameron makes a statement outside 10 Downing Street in London on Saturday. Cameron said Saturday a historic referendum on whether to stay in the European Union will be held on June 23.

BY GREGORY KATZ Associated Press

LONDON – It’s been three years in the making, but a June 23 date has finally been set for the momentous “in or out” British vote on whether to abandon the 28-nation European Union. Prime Minister David Cameron vowed Saturday to lead the charge to keep Britain part of the EU, winning the backing of most of his Cabinet and support for his “stay in” goal from political heavyweights in rival parties, including the opposition Labour Party and the Scottish National Party. “I do not love Brussels, I love Britain,” Cameron told the nation in front of his 10 Downing Street residence. He went on to say that he has concluded Britain would be safer and stronger remaining in the bloc, and that jobs would be created by maintaining open trading ties with Europe. He said a landmark deal reached the day before with EU leaders in Brussels would give Britain more control over its future, lessen welfare payments to migrants who come to Britain, and protect Britain from being absorbed into a feared European “superstate.” Cameron said he was making

good on a 2013 commitment to give British voters a chance to decide whether to remain in the bloc, which is seen by some Britons as meddlesome, overly bureaucratic, and unable to control its borders. Britain has always remained somewhat apart from the European project, preferring to keep its own currency rather than adopt the euro and declining to join the passport-free Schengen zone in place in much of Europe. The June vote will come as the EU struggles to cope with a sustained immigration crisis that last year brought more than 1 million people fleeing war and poverty to its shores.

The referendum battle pits those who believe Britain is better off in a formal union with Germany, France and other countries against those who see Britain as a proud island nation better capable of managing its affairs on its own. Treasury chief George Osborne and Home Secretary Theresa May, two senior Cabinet officials seen as possible future leaders of Cameron’s Conservative Party, voiced support for continued membership Saturday. May said Britain’s “protection against crime and terrorism” is enhanced by its role in the EU. Early polls suggest a close

Serbia: Two hostages killed in US airstrikes in Libya BY DUSAN STOJANOVIC Associated Press

BELGRADE, Serbia – Two Serbian embassy staffers held hostage since November died in Friday’s U.S. airstrikes on an Islamic State camp in western Libya that killed dozens, Serbian officials said Saturday, questioning why the Americans did not appear to know that foreign captives were at the site. A U.S. official said American forces had “no information indicating that their deaths were a result” of the airstrikes. Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said there was no doubt that Sladjana Stankovic, a communications officer, and Jovica Stepic, a driver, were killed in the American bombing. They were snatched in November after their diplomatic convoy, including the ambassador, came under fire near the coastal Libyan city of Sabratha. “Apparently, the Americans were not aware that foreign citizens were being kept there,” Vucic told reporters, adding: “But that will always remain an unknown fact to us.” American F-15E fighter-bombers on Friday struck an Islamic State group training camp in rural Libya near the Tunisian border, killing at least 49 people, probably including an IS operative considered responsible for deadly attacks in Tunisia last year, U.S. and local officials said. Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said the U.S. is determined to stop IS from “gaining traction” in Libya. Cook said the training camp was “relatively new.” “Our forces watched this training camp for weeks leading up to the operation, and at the time of the strike there were no indications of any civilians present,” Cook said. “While the circumstances of their deaths remain unclear, we, nevertheless, express our deepest condolences to the Serbian government and the families of those killed. We will share whatever information we can with the Serbian government,” Cook said. Serbian Foreign Minister Dacic said Serbia had known for a while the exact location where the Serb hostages were being held and had been working to get them back, adding that Libyan troops were considering an operation to free them. “I believe we had been close to the solution for them to be freed. Unfortunately, as a consequence of the attack against ISIS in Libya, the two of them lost their lives,” Dacic said, using another acronym for the Islamic State group. He said there may have been no communication

between Libyan and U.S. security services in organizing the attack and on whether the Americans were informed that the hostages were in the base. “We will seek official explanation from both Libya and the United States about the available facts and the selection of targets,” he said. “No one had informed us that the attack will take place.” According to the information received by the Serbian security services, a criminal group believed to be linked to IS had demanded ransom for the hostages and were holding them at the targeted site, he said. On the other hand, the American administration said it was a (IS) training

camp,” Dacic said. “This is information that has to be checked.” He did not specify the amount of ransom demanded of the families, saying only it was “impossible to pay.” “It wasn’t in the interests of the people who held them to kill them, because there were no other demands but financial,” Dacic said. A Libyan armed group calling itself the Special Deterrent Forces announced on Facebook that the two bodies had been delivered to Tripoli’s Matiga Airport. The group posted pictures showing two green coffins inside a hearse, and another of one of the coffins sitting on a tarmac next to a small plane.

vote is likely, fueled by the anti-EU sentiment that has been a constant issue in British politics for decades as the Brussels-based EU bureaucracy has grown in power and usurped some roles that were formerly in the hands of individual member states. Much of the opposition to EU membership comes from the UK Independence Party led by Nigel Farage and from skeptical members of Cameron’s own party. The “out” campaign does not yet have a clear leader, although Farage is expected to play a prominent role. He has built his career on opposition to EU membership, but he has been unable to expand

his political base and his bid for a seat in Parliament failed in the 2015 election. London’s popular and influential mayor, Boris Johnson, has not yet declared his intentions. Some believe Johnson, a Conservative, is potentially the charismatic leader the “out” side so far lacks. Justice Secretary Michael Gove on Saturday became the most prominent Cabinet figure to break ranks. “By leaving the EU we can take control. Indeed, we can show the rest of Europe the way to flourish,” he said. That drew immediate praise from Rupert Murdoch, who controls one of Britain’s major television news operations as well as several key newspapers. “Congratulations Michael Gove,” Murdoch tweeted. “Friends always knew his principles would overcome his personal friendships.” The outcome of the referendum is expected to influence whether Scottish political leaders, who strongly favor continued ties with Europe, seek a second referendum on whether to leave the United Kingdom. A 2014 referendum on that question saw Scottish voters reject independence after Cameron and the leaders of the Labour Party and Liberal Democrats joined forces to convince Scottish voters that breaking away would be too risky.

Scalia remembered as man of faith and the law Q Supreme Court justice laid to rest in private after public funeral. BY MARK SHERMAN AND SAM HANANEL Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was remembered Saturday as a man of faith, family and the law in a funeral marked by church ritual and pageantry for the conservative jurist whose larger-thanlife personality dominated the high court for nearly three decades. A who’s who of the nation’s political and legal elite was among more than 3,000 mourners at a funeral Mass for Scalia at the largest Catholic church in the United States. Vice President Joe Biden and 10 of the 11 living justices with whom Scalia served joined his wife of 55 years, their nine children and dozens of grandchildren on a balmy winter morning. President Barack Obama did not attend Scalia’s funeral Mass, despite some criticism from Republicans. The White House said the decision is a “respectful arrangement”

given the president’s large security detail and Biden’s personal relationship with Scalia’s family. Scalia was buried later Saturday in a private ceremony at an undisclosed location. He died unexpectedly last week at age 79 at a resort ranch in west Texas. He was the longest-serving among the current justices and the court’s most outspoken conservative. His death has set off a tumultuous political fight over a replacement and is affecting the presidential campaign. One Republican candidate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, interrupted his campaign ahead of Saturday’s South Carolina primary to attend the Mass. The Rev. Paul Scalia, the justice’s son and a Catholic priest, presided over a traditional service dispensed with eulogies that Scalia himself had said he did not like. Instead, his son spoke with reverence and humor about Scalia as a father and Catholic who saw “no conflict between faith and the love of one’s country.” Among the other participants in the Mass was Justice Clarence Thomas, who also is Catholic. Thomas read a passage from the New Testament’s Book of Romans.

‘Mockingbird’ author’s legacy celebrated Q S. Alabama town lauds fortune at forever being linked to Harper Lee.

A handwritten note from Harper Lee rejecting an interview now a treasure

BY KIM CHANDLER Associated Press

MONROEVILLE, Ala. – The southern Alabama town of Monroeville seems destined to be linked to Nelle Harper Lee, even after her death. Lee, who died Friday at age 89, drew inspiration from her hometown for the fictionalized Maycomb, the setting in her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Tributes to the book dot the town. Ann Mote, owner of the Ol’ Curiosities & Book Shoppe in Monroeville, said she thinks the town will always be linked to Lee. Lee’s family said in a statement that she will be laid to rest in a private ceremony. Jared Anton, of Hollywood, Florida, on Saturday sat outside the old courthouse in Monroeville during part of planned vacation through the South that coincidentally coincided with Lee’s death. Anton said reading the book – in which attorney Atticus Finch defends a wrongly accused AfricanAmerican man – was one reason he decided became a lawyer. “This is beyond the borders of Monroe County and Monroeville itself,” Anton said of Lee’s death. “It had an impact on me when I was younger. I wanted to do the right thing, to stand up to people, to defend the innocent if you will,” Anton said. “It is the greatest American novel. Name one that really has had more of an impact on Americans than that book.” The courthouse was where Lee as a child, like her creation Scout Finch, would peer down from the balcony as her father tried his cases in the courtroom. The southern town was home to childhood friends Truman Capote and Lee, giving rise to

A black mourning bow donned the top of the sign at the bookstore, where a stack of hardcopy “Mockingbird” books sat the counter. Lee, for years was largely unseen in her hometown, as she first sought privacy and then was secluded at an assisted living home. “You would see her around but still we would honor her wishes of being a very private person. The impact from now forward I think for the next few weeks we’ll have an influx of people in here just looking around and at some point – like when anybody passes away – at some point it just returns back to normal,” said Tim McKenzie, chairman of the museum’s board of directors who also acts in the play. McKenzie said the best way fans can honor the author’s memory is by applying the values in Mockingbird to the way they treat others. “That story, I’m glad it’s in just about all the schools now because it’s a story that everybody needs to hear,” he said. “If you adhere to the values she put in that book, if everybody did, we’d be living in a much better world.”

RALEIGH, N.C. – It was, without a doubt, the nicest rejection of my journalistic career. I was working on a project about whether “Southernness” was an outdated notion in our mobile culture, and was looking for regional icons to share their Lee thoughts. One of the first names that popped into my mind was Harper Lee. The author of “To Kill a Mockingbird” hadn’t granted an interview in about four decades, but I figured it was worth a shot. So I crafted a letter and sent it off to Monroeville, Alabama, care of attorney Alice F. Lee – the author’s older sister and chief gatekeeper. “I know you have had any number of journalistic suitors over the years,” I began, “but I hope you won’t mind one more.” I told Lee about my project, and that she – as someone who’d divided her time between New York City and Monroeville – would be a perfect fit. I even included some of my favorite feature stories – as proof of my bona fides, I suppose. It was the height of wishful thinking. I didn’t really expect a reply. Nine days later, a letter arrived. It was postmarked in New York, but the return address was a post

You show much talent as a non-fiction writer!” she wrote in a clear script that sloped somewhat down to the right. “I simply don’t give interviews – I gave all my publisher and the movie people asked me to give long ago (before you were born), and that was it. However, if I ever decide to give another, you will be

near the top of the waiting list!” There was a brief postscript on the backside of the page. “My eyesight is failing, and I must look sideways to write,” it read, “so please forgive the slant!” Wow! Like so many, I was in junior high school when an English teacher introduced me to Southern lawyer Atticus Finch and his two children, Jem and Scout. We were assigned “Mockingbird,” William

Golding’s “Lord of the Flies” and S.E. Hinton’s “The Outsiders” all in the same year – a magical year which taught me that reading needn’t be a chore. Growing up in a relatively integrated former mill town north of Boston, the fictional Maycomb, Alabama, was my first real exposure to the evils of segregation. The tale of Atticus’ quixotic defense of Tom Robinson – the disabled black handyman who finds himself charged with rape for having the audacity to feel sorry for a poor, abused white girl – left a lasting impression on me. In my 28 years with The Associated Press, all of it spent in the South, I’ve met many characters who would have been right at home in Lee’s Maycomb. And her May 2005 letter, brief as it was, fit with what I already sensed about her: There was gentility there, and the generosity of her decision to not only respond, but to offer a compliment, spoke volumes. We live in a society that sets enormously high expectations for second acts – be they books or movies or music albums. And we can’t wait to pounce when they don’t live up to those expectations. Harper Lee shrugged at such demands – in publishing and even public speaking. “It’s like an owl at noon,” she reportedly told a friend after a rare engagement. “You’ll never see me do something like this again.” And we didn’t.

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING In recognition of Hutchinson Regional Medical Center, I would like to give a special thanks to the pulmonary staff. These workers gave excellent care every time I have been there. They are always happy to assist others. I was in the hospital during the fair with broken ribs. Upon my release, the fifth-floor nurse wheeled me down to my car. I told the nurse I wanted to get a Bogie’s shake but needed to wait until I got paid. The nurse kindly gave me a $5 bill. How nice is that? A special thanks also to the speech therapist and all the employees and staff at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center for what they give of themselves to others. Hooray for Hutchinson Regional Medical Center. We are very lucky to have your services. J.D. WALLERIUS Hutchinson

Study: Noise can hinder a child’s learning Q Cacophony of TV and toys more distracting to a child’s brain than adult’s. BY LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical Writer

WASHINGTON – From the cacophony of day care to the buzz of TV and electronic toys, noise is more distracting to a child’s brain than an adult’s, and new research shows it can hinder how youngsters learn. In fact, one of the worst offenders when a tot’s trying to listen is other voices babbling in the background, researchers said Saturday at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. “What a child hears in a noisy environment is not what an adult hears,” said Dr. Lori Leibold of Boys Town National Research Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska. That’s a Catch-22 in our increasingly noisy lives because “young children learn language from hearing it,” said Dr. Rochelle Newman of the University of Maryland. “They have a greater need for understanding speech around them but at the same time they’re less equipped to deal with it.” It’s not their ability to hear. For healthy children, the auditory system is pretty well developed by a few months of age. Consider how hard it is to carry on a conversation in a noisy restaurant. Researchers simulated that background in a series of experiments by playing recordings of people reading and talking while testing how easily children detected words they knew, such as “playground,” when a new voice broke through the hubbub, or how easily they learned new words. The youngest children could recognize one person’s speech amid multiple talkers, but only at relatively soft noise levels, Newman said. Even the background noise during relatively quiet day care story time can be enough for tots to miss parts of what’s read, she said. It’s not just a concern for

In this image taken from video provided by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a toddler participates in a speech perception experiment in a laboratory at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C.. The toddler was conditioned to put a block in the bucket whenever she heard the “target” word. From the cacophony of day care to the buzz of TV and electronic toys, noise is more distracting to a child’s brain than an adult’s, and new research shows it can hinder how youngsters learn. In fact, one of the worst offenders when a tot’s trying to listen is other voices babbling in the background, researchers said Saturday at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

SOME HINTS Don’t leave the TV, radio and other electronics on in the background. It’s not clear whether soft music is distracting, but lyrics might be, Ratner said. Speak clearly and make eye contact. Especially in noise, make sure tots see your face. They can pick up on mouth movements, Newman said. If the child doesn’t understand, try again with simpler words. If a child’s having school behavior problems, make sure being unable to hear in class isn’t the problem. O





toddlers and preschoolers. The ability to understand and process speech against competing background noise doesn’t mature until adolescence, Leibold said. Nor is the challenge just to tune out the background buzz. Brief sudden noises – someone coughs, a car horn blares – can drown out part of a word or sentence. An adult’s experienced brain automatically substitutes a logical choice, often well enough that the person doesn’t notice, Newman said. “Young children don’t do this. Their brain doesn’t fill in the gaps,” she said. Children who were born prematurely may have an additional risk. When preemies spend a long time in an incubator, their brains get

used to the constant “white noise” of the machine’s fan – different from a full-term baby who develops hearing mom’s voice in the womb and thus is wired to pay more attention to voices, said Dr. Amir Lahav of Harvard Medical School. He had mothers of preemies record themselves singing lullabies or reading stories, and filtered them along with the sound of mom’s heartbeat into the incubator three times a day when she wasn’t otherwise visiting. The brain’s auditory cortex became more developed in babies given that extra womb-like exposure compared with preemies with typical incubator care, Lahav found. Moreover, when those babies

were big enough to leave the hospital, they paid more attention to speech, he said. “Exposure to noises and sounds very early in life will spill over to affect how our brain is going to function,” Lahav said. Noise also is a special challenge for children with hearing loss, who may need technology beyond standard hearing aids to cope, Leibold said, describing special receivers that can transmit a teacher’s voice directly to the ear so it’s not lost in classmates’ chatter. The research has implications for classroom design, too, Leibold added, as the type of flooring or ceiling height can either soften kids’ natural noise or bounce it around. But learning starts at home, and University of Maryland child language specialist Nan Bernstein Ratner often has parents ask if they should stimulate a tot’s environment with interactive toys and educational TV. “We tend to think bustling environments and creating background noise is stimulating for kids,” she said. But, she said, “what’s stimulating on the part of the parent may not be for the child.”

BY JOHN ANTCZAK Associated Press

MOJAVE, Calif. – Virgin Galactic rolled out a new version of its SpaceShipTwo space tourism rocket Friday as it prepares to return to flight testing for the first time since a 2014 accident destroyed the original craft, killing a pilot and setting back the nascent industry. A Land Rover with Virgin Galactic founder Sir Richard Branson standing through the sunroof pulled the ship in front of an audience inside a hangar at Southern California’s Mojave Air & Space Port, where it was assembled. Branson’s 1-year-old granddaughter, Eva-Deia, helped by her mother, christened the craft by breaking a little bottle of milk over its nose. The baby is the daughter of Branson’s son, Sam, and his wife, Bellie. “All of us in this room need to pinch ourselves ... isn’t she quite beautiful,” Branson told the audience. The ship is the size of a small corporate jet. It was named Virgin Spaceship Unity at the suggestion of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, whom Branson promised a free ride into space. SpaceShipTwo is designed to be flown by a crew of two and carry up to six passengers on a high-speed suborbital flight to the fringes of space. At an altitude above 62 miles, passengers will experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the Earth below. After years of development, Virgin Galactic appeared to be nearing the goal of turning ordinary civilians into astronauts when the first SpaceShipTwo broke apart on Oct. 31, 2014, during its fourth rocket-powered flight. Wreckage fell to the Mojave Desert floor. “When we had the accident, for about 24 hours we were wondering whether it was worth continuing, whether we should call it a day,” Branson told The Associated Press. He said engineers, astronauts and members of the public helped convince him that space travel is too important to give up on. The crash investigation found that co-pilot Michael Alsbury prematurely unlocked the so-called feathering system that is intended to slow and stabilize the craft as it re-enters the atmosphere. Alsbury was killed, but pilot Peter Siebold, although seriously injured, parachuted to safety. The “feathers” – a term

Wreckage lies near the site where a Virgin Galactic space tourism rocket, SpaceShipTwo, crashed Nov. 1 in the desert near Mojave, Calif. derived from the design of a badminton shuttlecock – are tail structures that extend rearward from each wingtip. They are designed to swivel upward at an angle to create drag, preventing a buildup of speed and heat, and then rotate back down to normal flying position as the craft descends into the thickening atmosphere. A National Transportation Safety Board investigation found that Scaled Composites, a company that was developing SpaceShipTwo with Virgin Galactic and was responsible for its test program, should have had systems to compensate for human error. The NTSB chairman, Christopher Hart, said it wasn’t a matter of shortcuts but of not considering a crew member would make the mistake that occurred. Virgin Galactic subsequently assumed full responsibility to complete the test program. Company officials said that the new spaceship will have a device to prevent a similar pilot error. The company stressed in a statement Thursday its commitment to testing from the level of individual parts on up to the complete craft. The company, which has invested more than $500 million in the program, did not project a timeline for actually carrying space tourists, noting that “our new vehicle will remain on the ground for a while after her unveiling, as we run her through full-vehicle tests of her electrical systems and all of her moving parts.” SpaceShipTwo is the successor to SpaceShipOne, the winged rocket plane that won the $10 million Ansari X Prize in 2004 by demonstrating a reusable spacecraft capable of carrying three people could make two flights within two weeks to at an altitude of least 62 miles. The prize announced in 1996 was intended to spur the development of private spaceflight in the same way the Orteig Prize offered in 1919 fostered trans-Atlantic aviation. Charles Lindbergh won that prize with his nonstop flight from New York to Paris in 1927.

FRIENDSHIP MEALS The Friendship Meals program in Hutchinson is for anyone age 60 or older regardless of economic circumstances. The cost of the meal is a recommended $3 contribution for registered participants and volunteers. Inability to pay the donation doesn’t exclude anyone from being served. To sign up for home delivery, call the Salvation Army at (620) 663-7491 and talk to Eddie Tipton or Donna Pitzer. Lunch is also served daily at the Salvation Army, with service starting at around 12 p.m. (noon).

Woman struggles after time spent in solitary Q Mental illness made worse during years passed in ‘the bing’ at Rikers Island prison in NY. BY JAKE PEARSON Associated Press

NEW YORK – Six weeks after her arrival at Rikers Island, an argument over who should clean a jailhouse shower sent Candie Hailey to solitary confinement – known as “the bing.” It was the first time, but it would not be the last. A month later, records show, she cursed and spit at a guard and resisted when she was put in a hold. Ninety-five days in the bing. She later got 70 days for cursing at an officer, splashing the guard with toilet water and refusing to stop. Among other infractions: fighting (40 days), disrespect of staff (30 days) and blocking her cell window (15 days). Of her first 29 months in jail, Hailey served about 27 alone in a 6-by-10-foot cell, with a bed, a toilet and a few books to pass the time. When she did go outside, it was just for one hour in 24. And she had yet to be tried for any crime, let alone convicted. At least Candie Hailey, on solitary eight times during her confinement more than three-year incarceration, she would be taken to the hospital after suicide attempts in solitary that included trying to swallow hair remover product, pills and the chemicals inside an instant ice pack, banging her head on a wall and trying to electrocute herself by putting a phone cord in her cell’s toilet. Hailey could not abide solitary confinement. But that was the only place her jailers felt they could put her.

“I would say I’ve been through hell and back. My soul died but my body is alive.”

A case study Candie Hailey’s wretched stay at Rikers – detailed in official documents and hours of interviews – is a case study in solitary confinement and its consequences. Many criminal justice experts say officials too often rely on solitary to punish inmates, disregarding the effect on troubled men and women like Hailey. Research has shown that solitary can be psychologically distressing, especially for prisoners who go into it with preexisting mental illnesses. Even though long-term use of isolation is increasingly being challenged – in statehouses, the courts and even by President Barack Obama, who last month banned its use for juveniles as punishment for low-level infractions in federal prisons – it’s still the most common correctional tool nationwide. Hailey, who was diagnosed at Rikers with a borderline character disorder, mood disorder and anti-social personality disorder, quickly adopted a perverse survival strategy: Act out and you get out, if only temporarily for treatment. “I would take the feces and I put it all over me,” she recalls. “I said, ‘If you’re gonna treat me like a dog, I’m gonna act like one.’ ” Multiple suicide attempts Hailey believed she was treated unfairly from the moment of

Hailey visits to eat and store some of her belongings at the apartment where both her younger sisters live, while staying in a nearby shelter.

Above: Hailey, right, cries June 9 as she hugs her younger sister, Chyna, following her college graduation ceremonies in New York. “I am proud of you,” said Candie. “We’ve been through a lot.” Hailey dropped out of high school to help care for Chyna and another sister, and later earned an equivalency diploma and a college degree before Rikers Island prison made her a “solitary survivor.” Left: A solitary confinement cell known all as “the bing,” at New York’s Rikers Island prison is seen on Jan. 28. It is similar to a cell Candie Hailey was sent to. her arrival at Rikers’ 800-bed, all-women’s Rose M. Singer Center – Rosie’s, as it’s called. Her arrest on attempted murder charges following a 2012 fight with three other women was widely publicized, with at least one city tabloid seizing on the fact that one of the women’s 4-month-old baby girl was left with a skull fracture and a deep cut above her eye. Guards and fellow inmates gave her a scurrilous nickname: “baby killer.” When Hailey was examined after the eight suicide attempts, psychiatrists who saw her came to the same conclusion: She was manipulative, a malingerer, intentionally hurting herself to escape solitary. The cause of this behavior, they said, was her underlying personality disorder. “I’m being treated as a criminal, but I am the victim,” she told a

mental health worker. But Hailey wasn’t a candidate for units for the most seriously mentally ill because she didn’t have a diagnosis of severe depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. So, more often than not, after her suicide attempts she was placed on suicide watch and sent back to the bing. The only mental health care she received in solitary consisted of brief consultations at her cell’s door. “I can’t endure this abuse evermore,” she wrote in a handwritten suicide note to her father in the summer of 2014. “The truth will come to light, while death shall set me free.” Hailey’s monthlong trial last May ended with a verdict of not guilty. Hailey was free to return to the Bronx. Jail officials wouldn’t discuss Hailey’s case specifically. But city

Corrections Department spokeswoman Eve Kessler said officials have reduced the number of inmates serving their time in solitary by about two-thirds in the past two years, noting that “everyone in our custody deserves to be treated safely and humanely.” Breaking free In more than three years Hailey spent in jail, she spent 2 1/3 years in solitary. And in the nine months since she was freed, she has struggled with the trauma of her confinement. “Honestly I think I’d be better off in jail,” the now-32-year-old Hailey said after yet another failed trip to court to regain custody of her two children. “It’s like a nightmare, like everyone’s out there trying to get me.” She had reunited with her younger sisters and father and

promptly dissociated from them; struggled to regain her welfare benefits and strove to complete a still-unresolved divorce. Housing has been a continuing struggle. She cycled out of two different city shelters, got locked out of a $100-per-week room in the Bronx. By December, she had resorted to riding subway trains through the night. Twice since her release, she’s tried to kill herself. And for months she stopped attending weekly counseling sessions Just before the end of the year, Hailey gained placement in another apartment for people with mental health problems and agreed to return to counseling. But she was still fearful her cycle of problems would never end. “I would say I’ve been through hell and back,” she said. “My soul died but my body is alive.”

Obama sets out to nominate new justice to Supreme Court Q Election-year battle with GOP likely to be heated. BY KATHLEEN HENNESSY AND MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON – It may seem like Mission Impossible. Still, President Barack Obama this week set out on a quest to put his third justice on the Supreme Court, hoping to overcome solid Republican opposition and difficult election-year politics in what likely will be the last major battle of his tenure. Obama faces a Republican leadership that appears united in opposing his decision to fill the seat as well as a crop of Republicans facing re-election who have lined up behind their leaders. Those vulnerable GOP senators are crucial to any White House strategy for filling the seat held by the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia. Democrats

would need 14 defections from GOP ranks to break a filibuster and confirm a nominee. So far, no GOP senator has indicated he or she is ready to vote for an Obama nominee. The White House said Friday that Obama will move ahead. Obama on tiw week called key Senate leaders, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, part of the customary consultation once considered essential to laying the groundwork for a warm reception for an eventual nominee. But the president did not appear to make much headway with the GOP leaders. Hours after the call, an op-ed penned by McConnell and Grassley was published in The Washington Post restating their case for why Obama should leave the job of naming a nominee to the next president. “It is today the American people, rather than a

lame-duck president whose priorities and policies they just rejected in the most-recent national election, who should be afforded the opportunity to replace Justice Scalia,” McConnell and Grassley wrote. Grassley’s name on the piece signaled the Iowa chairman is now firmly in line with leadership. Earlier in the week, the chairman had suggested he might be open to holding hearings on an Obama nominee, a statement that buoyed Obama and his allies and confused the GOP message. If Obama has any hope of winning, he’ll need more than a muddled message. Obama’s hopes rest first on persuading Grassley to hold hearings in his committee. Then McConnell would have to agree to a vote by the full Senate, where the president would need 60 votes to break a filibuster. The White House and its allies have suggested taking one step at time, hoping each step in the process will build

As Obama considers his choice, advisers have begun mobilizing outside groups that will pour money and time into reaching out voters at the state level. Those groups have begun to add staff, marshal resources and put out advertising. In a meeting at the White House Thursday night, White House counsel Neil Eggleston and adviser Valerie Jarrett urged advocates to keep up the pressure.

Once Obama names a candidate, allies believe the conversation will shift from a theoretical discussion to a debate over an individual, putting a face and what is expected to be an impressive resume into the mix. If the White House can win a hearing, the nominee would become a political celebrity and a cause. If public opinion were to shift in swing states like Ohio or Wisconsin, the White House hopes, there could

be a chance of persuading Republican senators. Democrats’ strongest argument is casting Republicans as unrelenting obstructionists, allies argue. “Republicans are doing exactly what people hate about politics – these scorched-earth partisan tactics that put political ends above doing your job is exactly what people hate,” said Neera Tanden, president of the liberal Center for American Progress.

Young wife a victim of cruel in-laws Dear Annie: My 26-yearold daughter has been married to a wonderful, hardworking man for three years. They have a beautiful child and a nice home. The problem is my son-in-law’s mother. This woman has disliked my daughter from day one, and for no discernible reason. My daughter and her husband tried talking things out with her, but she always returns to her passive-aggressive ways. I try to stay out of it, but it is so hard to watch this woman bring my daughter to tears and try to split this otherwise lovely family apart. Worse, she has most of the other in-laws on her bandwagon. I understand my son-inlaw is caught between a rock and a hard place, but he never stands behind his wife. Whenever the two of them are around his parents, he throws my daughter under the bus.

Annie’s Mailbox

Kathy Mitchell, Marcy Sugar We love our son-in-law, but cannot stand to see our daughter and grandchild treated with such disrespect. It is causing a great deal of strain on this new family. Is there any polite way to deal with this problem without overstepping? – Concerned Mother Dear Mother: We know how hard this must be for you to watch, but the problem belongs to your daughter, and she must find a way to deal with it. The best thing you can do is offer a sympathetic ear without passing judgment or telling your daughter how to handle her in-laws.

But do suggest that she and her husband talk to a professional for guidance. A counselor will help your daughter develop better techniques to deal with this difficult woman, and also make your son-in-law understand the need to stand up to his parents in defense of his wife. The in-laws will never treat her better if he doesn’t insist on it. Dear Annie: I work in an office at a library, and one of my co-workers is continuously babbling and singing loudly. This is distracting and annoying to most of us. “Dwayne” doesn’t sit that close to me, but I can still hear him all of the time. Since Dwayne is pretty well-liked by everyone, we’re all uncomfortable asking him to stop the constant noise. Can you think of a nice and/or anonymous way to let him know he is distracting us? – Driving Us Nuts Dear Driving: Some

people who constantly hum or babble do so because it is soothing. In many cases, they can’t help themselves or don’t realize they are doing it. We suspect Dwayne is unaware that he is constantly making noises, and certainly has no idea that you are all so annoyed. Any of you could mention to Dwayne that he seems to sing to himself all day long, and when said in a kind and gentle manner, this is neither insulting nor offensive. However, there is a strong likelihood that Dwayne will continue to hum and babble, because it is an unconscious behavior. He might try to curtail it, but you would have to constantly remind him, and that doesn’t appear to be something you are willing to do. Instead, we recommend you invest in a pair of earbuds and either listen to your own music or use them to block out Dwayne’s humming.

Reporter details decades of tumult in the Middle East BY JERRY HARKAVY


Associated Press

“And Then All Hell Broke Loose: Two Decades in the Middle East,” by Richard Engel Regular viewers of television’s evening news are sure to have seen video of Richard Engel delivering narratives as he dodges bullets, bombs and artillery barrages while reporting on the latest conflicts in the Middle East. Over the past two decades, the boyish-looking reporter for NBC News has emerged as perhaps the most familiar face that Americans count on to update them on complex, chaotic and critical developments in a faraway region that has come to dominate international news. Like Forrest Gump, he seems to wind up wherever the action is. Engel’s third book on the subject is both a memoir about his often dangerous assignments and a primer on the political and religious strife in the Arab world, a story that

than he came in contact with violent Islamic fundamentalists, whose attacks on foreign tourists set the stage for similar bloodshed from al-Qaeda and ISIS. After four years in Cairo, he moved on to Jerusalem and covered the second Intifada. The switch from freelancer to staffer for a French wire service was followed by his shift to television, where bigger Simon & Schuester/Associated Press budgets allowed him to The book cover of “And Then All move around more easily.

reporter in Baghdad. When a truck bomb explodes outside his hotel room during the insurgency, Engel wonders how long he can continue to cheat death and whether the constant danger was making him paranoid. But leaving Iraq does little to get him out of the line of fire. His transfer to Beirut comes just in time to cover the monthlong war between Israel and Hezbollah; he then returns to Egypt for the Arab Spring uprising that brought down strongman Hosni Mubarak and crosses the border when the overthrow of Libya’s leader takes center stage. But Engel’s biggest brush with danger would come at the end of 2012 when he and his crew are held captive for five days in Syria during the civil war that continues to this day. The author’s quick-paced account is a thrilling adventure story laced with historical context to help readers make sense of the longstanding sectarian hatreds that propel the violence in Iraq and elsewhere.

New coker unit’s active



Q It’s part of McPherson refinery’s improvements, aids crude oil’s usefulness. BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News

McPHERSON – The CHS Refinery in McPherson has begun using its new coker unit, nearly three years after installation of the $555 million project began. A coker converts the heaviest portion of crude oil, which otherwise would be sold as asphalt, into much more valuable liquid products that can be converted to gasoline and diesel fuel, according to Rick Leicht, vice president of refining and manager of the McPherson plant. Any remaining product is sold as petroleum coke for use in industrial applications. Construction of the massive coker unit, which towers 312 feet over the refinery grounds, began in March 2013 and took nearly 2.8 million construction man-hours to complete. The unit began operating Feb. 5. The new coker replaces one that has operated at the refinery since 1952. When combined with other improvements at the plant, it will enable production there to grow from 85,000 to 100,000 barrels of fuel per day, company officials previously stated. Safety is a central feature of the new unit, which has a fully automated decoking control system. Once they cook the coke solid, crews must drill it out of the drums with a 3,000-pound high-pressure water drill.

Treat your customers as you’d want to be treated and they’ll keep coming back.” “It was mostly hands-on training,” Headings said of learning auto mechanics skills on the farm. “Every day you learned something new.” He worked for another auto repair business from 2004 until 2010, when a building came open in downtown Yoder and he went out on his own. “I knew they needed one (auto repair) in this area and saw the opportunity,” Headings said. “We have to keep up to stay in business,” he said, “and that definitely has its challenges. We have to keep our (diagnostic) scanner updated.” They also attend the annual “Vision KC-Auto Expo” to learn new techniques and what new equipment will be needed or is available. However, their biggest challenge some days, he said, is just figuring out what is wrong with a vehicle. “We’re always fixing someone else’s problem,” Headings said.

These tips will help you prevent wedding blues BY THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU

The cost of weddings, like everything else, continues going up and up. The average amount spent by couples in Kansas last year was between $18,740 and $31,233. (And that is not even factoring in honeymoon expenses.) By far the largest part of a wedding’s expense is venue rental and catering. Next comes jewelry, then photography, then wedding-planner costs. With so much to consider and so much money at stake, the Better Business Bureau has some tips for those starting to plan their weddings: Venues, catering It’s vital to know how much you are going to be able to spend. Having a figure in mind will help you rule out those venues that cost more than you’re comfortable paying. Consider: The total number of guests you will have there. Whether some guests will have mobility issues or other special needs. Does the venue require that you use a particular caterer, rental company or designer? Are they full-service, meaning do they provide such things as tables, chairs, linens and other catering? Does the venue have staff that will be on hand to help at the wedding? How often does the venue have weddings? For what do they charge extra fees? There may be “plate-splitting,” “cake-cutting” or “corkage” fees, for instance. Ask specifically whether their cost-per-person quote includes such fees. If the venue is a place of worship, ask what they require in the way of ceremonial procedures. Some may have religious specifications that you had not considered. Check complaints and reviews about the venue with the BBB. Read carefully about any

• • • • • • •

unresolved complaints. See if they have a refund policy and get it in writing. Don’t overlook a “cold-feet clause” no matter how uncomfortable it makes you feel. Get everything in writing, including the dates, prices, services and products discussed. Get references and check them out. See what other couples’ experiences with the venue were like. Ask them if there were any surprises.

• •

Other issues Watch for these issues that can complicate your wedding day: Dress issues: Wrong sizes and colors of ordered gowns can be a problem when there is not enough time to make changes. Make sure the shop knows your schedule ahead of time. Check them out with the BBB. Transportation issues: Some limousine services have been known to have poor customer service and rigid cancellation policies. Ask about charges for needing vehicles longer than anticipated. Ask how they handle complaints. Get everything in writing and check the service out with the BBB. Photographers: Find out when and how pictures will be delivered. Get specifics about digital possibilities like DVDs, CDs, and how long you will have to make your choices. Ask for references and check the BBB for complaints. Musicians: Find out precisely who will be performing, their cost, and how long they will perform. Ask about the cost of a last-minute extension of performance time. Get everything in writing. There is much to be considered and much at stake in planning a wedding. Trying to anticipate problems in advance can save last-minute headaches on your wedding day. For questions or concerns about wedding planning, call the BBB at (800) 856-2417 or visit its website,

Coker • From Page C1 The new system allows operators to drill out and remove the coke from a protected area a safe distance from the coker. Prior to startup, unit operators were also extensively trained and equipment was thoroughly checked and tested, the company stated. It takes 18 to 24 hours to process a drum of coke, so one drum will be filling while crews drill the other one out. With the improvements, the plant will not only be able to further refine petroleum, which produces more products, but it also allows it to run more crudeoil types, said Jim Loving, CHS senior vice president, refining, pipelines and terminals. “The new coker allows the refinery to process a larger variety of crude oils, thus delivering the best value to our owners and customers by purchasing the most cost-effective crude

McPHERSON – Longtime McPherson doctors Brian and Tom Billings will soon be joining the Hutchinson Clinic, concentrating on care to the McPherson community. Both doctors have provided care to McPherson patients for decades through their clinic, Associates in Family Care. “We are fortunate to be able to bring two terrific doctors who are both wellknown and well-respected in the McPherson community to the Hutch Clinic team,” Hutchinson Clinic CEO Mike Heck stated in a news release. “Both (men) will allow us to offer family care and additional walk-in expertise to all of our patients in McPherson, improving access to care.” Both are graduates of Sterling College and the University of Kansas School of Medicine in

Wichita. Dr. Brian Billings did his residency at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.

Fourth St. in McPherson, where the Hutch Clinic also offers a variety of specialty medical services, as well as walk-in care. Construction is underway on a new Hutch Clinic location at 601 N. Main St., next to the Genesis Health

Club Center. The new facility is expected to open in April, and at that time, both doctors will move to the new facility and begin their official association with Hutchinson Clinic. Until that time, the Billingses’ patients should continue to call them at (620) 241-5500. Patients will receive notification before the move. “I am excited for the opportunity to join the Hutchinson Clinic,” Brian Billings stated. “I know that the additional services that are going to become locally available will benefit the McPherson community, as well as the hospital.” The Hutchinson Clinic currently offers ear, nose and throat, dermatology, cardiology and oncology, as well as walk-in care at the Fourth Street location.

Sweepstakes spotlights farmer veterans’ stories MOUNDRIDGE – Continuing its commitment to veterans’ causes and support for our nation’s heroes, The Grasshopper Company, manufacturer of commercial-grade zero-turn riding mowers, announced its “Fighter to Farmer” sweepstakes, in partnership with Meredith Agrimedia, publisher of Successful Farming magazine. The sweepstakes will acknowledge and thank farmer veterans for their service by highlighting stories of those who have served their country on the battlefields abroad and returned to work in the fields at home. “Grasshopper has long recognized combat heroes and veterans through our partnership with Military Warriors Support Foundation, and now we are excited to partner with Meredith Agrimedia and Successful Farming to find these farmer warriors, share their stories and honor them for their service,” said Trent Guyer, marketing coordinator at Grasshopper. Three farmer veteran stories will be published in a feature article in the November 2016 issue of Successful Farming.

KDA develops a guide on incubator kitchens MANHATTAN – In an effort to provide support to small food-business startups, the Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA) has developed an Incubator Kitchen Resource Guide to provide crucial information about incubator resources throughout Kansas. Incubator kitchens are food facilities that can be rented for short periods of time to allow individuals starting a food business to access commercial kitchen equipment in a cost-effective manner. In recent years, nine incubator kitchens have been established across Kansas. As KDA works to provide support and assistance to help promote success for Kansas businesses, the Incubator Kitchen Resource Guide helps make this information more accessible. Users can find the Incubator Kitchen Resource Guide by visiting the KDA website. “The overhead costs of using an incubator kitchen can be much lower than renovating, building or renting facilities,” said Kerry Wefald, KDA marketing director. “Many incubator kitchens have commercial equipment that might be cost-prohibitive for a small startup.” Each business operating in an incubator kitchen, if required to be licensed, must be individually licensed to use the kitchen. A license is required if a processor is making a product that requires temperature control for safety or is distributing the product to

grocery stores, restaurants or other wholesale distribution. The Incubator Kitchen Resource Guide provides information on the following kitchens: 305 LLC, Topeka; Aunt Faye’s Community Kitchen, Morland; Culinary Commons Incubator Kitchen, Lawrence; Food Innovation Accelerator at K-State Olathe, Olathe; Glacial Hills Food Center, Horton; Harper County Education Center, Harper; Kitchen 4 Hire, Salina; Reverie Coffee Roasters, Wichita; and The Culinary Incubator at Elk Plaza, Hanston.

Conference to look at farm-to-school efforts LYONS, Neb. – More than 200 farmers, ranchers, school food-service personnel and community members working to improve students’ health and economic opportunities for farmers and ranchers will gather in Nebraska City for the first ever Midwest Farm to School Conference on March 2. This full-day event at the Lied Lodge and Conference Center in Nebraska City will bring together those interested in building farm-to-school initiatives in Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and surrounding states. The conference will highlight methods of increasing students’ knowledge about local and healthy foods, increase the amount of local foods served to students in schools, and build knowledge for hands-on farm-to-school practices, like school gardens. The opening keynote speaker is Chef Robert Rusan, a 2015 School Nutrition Foundation Hero. Rusan, based at Maplewood Richmond Heights School District in Missouri, comes from a three-generation catering service that started with his grandmother and was passed down to his mother

and aunt, before eventually being passed on to him. “My grandmother was actually a lunch lady,” he said. Rusan started a program, “Teen Kitchen,” where he teaches students all the facets of cooking, cleaning, gardening and harvesting. He teaches them not only to prepare food, but to prepare healthy meals. He wants to teach students where their food comes from, and he does that daily: Each school in the district has a school garden, and Robert has a chicken coop where students engage in active learning. At the middle school is a beehive from which the students collect honey, which Robert uses as a sugar substitute for foods served to the students. Throughout the day, conference-goers will be able to attend a variety of sessions for food-service professionals, farmers, school staff and others interested in building farm-to-school in their communities. Sessions will address procurement tips, scaling up farm products, school gardens, and bridging the farmer and school communication gap. For more information, a full agenda and to register, visit: or contact Sarah Smith at sarahs@ or 402-783-1183.

Senate bill would block mandatory labeling of GMOs BY MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press

WASHINGTON – A Senate committee is moving forward on legislation that would prevent states from requiring labels on genetically modified foods. Vermont is set to require such labels this summer. Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts of Kansas released draft legislation late Friday that would block that law and create new voluntary labels for companies that want to use them on food packages that contain genetically modified

ingredients. The Senate panel is scheduled to vote on the bill Thursday. The bill is similar to legislation the House passed last year. The food industry has argued that GMOs, or genetically modified organisms, are safe and a patchwork RobeRts of state laws isn’t practical. Labeling advocates have been fighting state-by-state to enact the labeling, with the eventual

goal of a national standard. Senators have said they want to find a compromise on the labeling issue before Vermont’s law kicks in. But negotiations broke down between the food industry and labeling advocates. Roberts said in a statement after releasing the draft that “negotiations will continue in an effort to reach committee agreement.” But he said the committee needs to act quickly. The Vermont law kicks in July 1. “We are out of time,” Roberts said. “The time to act is now.”

The committee’s top Democrat, Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow, said she would continue to work with Roberts on the bill. Food industry groups swiftly praised the draft. “Congress must pass a national food labeling solution that offers farmers, families and food producers the certainty and access to the affordable and sustainable food supply they deserve,” said Pamela Bailey, head of the Grocery Manufacturers Association. Scott Faber, head of the national Just Label It Campaign, called it

Feds: Witnesses fear ex-pharma CEO Shkreli BY MICHAEL BALSAMO Associated Press

NEW YORK – Several witnesses in a securities fraud case against pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli are concerned he will retaliate if they testify against him, U.S. prosecutors say in a court filing. Federal prosecutors in New York are asking a judge delay a civil lawsuit that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission brought against Shkreli until after his criminal case plays out. They fear that if Shkreli is allowed to take depositions in the civil case, he will have access to information that isn’t normally disclosed until the late stages of a criminal case. “Here, there is evidence that defendant Shkreli has taken steps to intimidate or threaten individuals in the past,” prosecutors wrote in filings Thursday. Several of the witnesses told prosecutors they were worried Shkreli would retaliate against them if they testified because they “have been threatened” by Shkreli over past disputes, prosecutors said. One of the witnesses, who wasn’t identified in court papers, also told prosecutors that Shkreli reached out to them after he learned he was under investigation and “suggested that the witness agree to a false version of certain events,” authorities

Martin Shkreli leaves court in New York on Feb. 3. In December he was charged with securities fraud and conspiracy related to Retrophin, a pharmaceutical company he previously ran. said. Shkreli’s attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said the allegations against his client are “preposterous.” “While his ‘keen intellect’ can at times be intimidating to mere mortals, nothing else about Martin Shkreli is intimidating at all,” he said. Shkreli, 32, gained notoriety last year after a

drug company he founded, Turing Pharmaceuticals, spent $55 million for the U.S. rights to sell a life-saving medicine called Daraprim and promptly raised the price from $13.50 to $750 per pill. The former hedge fund manager was arrested in December after prosecutors said he lost investors’ money through bad trades

Puerto Rico cracks down on theft, tax cheats BY DANICA COTO Associated Press

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Like many small business owners in this struggling U.S. territory, Luis Escribano was having a hard time paying the power bills. So, for at least five years, he did what many others have done: tampered with the electricity meter at his small cafe, illegally cutting his bill by tens of thousands of dollars. Then the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority, which is struggling to pay its own bills, decided to make an example of him. He was charged with theft and threatened with jail time if he didn’t pay $40,000 in back bills and fines. The company not only persuaded the court to make restitution a condition of probation for the first time, but also alerted local media that Escribano was due in court last month to publicly shame him. “They have declared total war,” said Michael Corona, a lawyer who represents Escribano. While his case is extreme, it reflects a new approach by Puerto Rican public agencies that are desperate for money and no longer able to put up with theft and cheating that went unpunished in the past. The Puerto Rico government is teetering on the brink of financial collapse, burdened by $72 billion in public debt. Public agencies account for nearly 40 percent of that debt, including the power company, which recently reached a deal to restructure a portion of its $9 billion debt. The highway and transportation authority carries more than $7 billion of that debt while the water and sewer company have more than $5 billion. Amid the crisis, the Treasury Department is going after delinquent taxpayers like never before, even closing a business owned by the head of the Chamber of Commerce for

“That’s proof that this island has touched bottom, when suddenly a tax collector is a hero.” Treasury Secretary Juan Zaragoza non-payment of sales tax and temporarily shutting down Jose Enrique, a restaurant that had become a renowned culinary destination. The island’s water utility has prevailed on the Justice Department to file criminal charges against people who have not paid their bills or have stolen service, a step only taken in drastic cases in the past. And a government agency that issues permits recently trumpeted the fact that it imposed a $34,000 fine against a company operating an electronic billboard without its permission. Such actions have surprised many on the island, where the government had often taken a laissez-faire approach to enforcement, among the qualities that made Puerto Rico more like a Latin American country and less like a U.S. state. “Everything used to be negotiable,” said Treasury Secretary Juan Zaragoza, who is leading an effort to collect overdue tax revenue. That lax attitude thrived as Puerto Rico went through a period of relative prosperity thanks to a U.S. tax system that fostered the development of manufacturing on the island, mostly pharmaceuticals and medical equipment. But the incentives were phased out by 2006, and the economy began to slump. Unemployment rose higher than that of any U.S. state. Governor after governor borrowed money to help cover the growing deficit, tripling Puerto Rico’s debt in just 15 years. The new crackdown on

unpaid bills is praised by many who say they follow the law. “It’s about time,” said Hiram Colon, a 47-year-old event organizer. “They should have taken these measures a long time ago because we wouldn’t be in the crisis we find ourselves now.” But other Puerto Ricans believe the government is unfairly targeting the working class while making few improvements in how it operates. “Now they’re giving us bad service coupled with the threat of jail,” said Corona, who said that Escribano himself had declined to be interviewed. “I don’t know where this is going to end.” Delinquent power bills have been piling up for years and are one of the reasons cited by the electrical utility for its financial woes. It recently announced that it will cut subsidized power at public housing units starting next month because of $31 million in outstanding bills. Many impoverished Puerto Ricans say the crackdown is making life even more miserable for them. “It’s not right that they are targeting Puerto Rico’s working class,” Wilma Rivera, a 46-year-old mother of three, said as she watched power company workers inspect her meter for evidence of tampering. “We’re the ones paying for everyone else’s mess.” Despite the grumbling, the government has pledged to pursue those who have long gotten away with breaking the law. Zaragoza, the treasury secretary, says a lot of other people are fed up with widespread cheating. He says he’s even had people praise him while he walks down the streets of the capital. “That’s proof that this island has touched bottom, when suddenly a tax collector is a hero,” he said.

and then looted Retrophin, another pharmaceutical company where he was CEO, for $11 million to pay back his disgruntled clients. Shkreli has pleaded not guilty to securities fraud and conspiracy charges.

“outrageous” and said Roberts is proposing to deny American consumers the right to know what is in their food. Genetically modified seeds are engineered in laboratories to have certain traits, like resistance to herbicides. The majority of the country’s corn and soybean crop is now genetically modified, with much of that going to animal feed. Corn and soybeans are also made into popular processed food ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup, corn starch and soybean oil. The food industry says

about 75 percent to 80 percent of foods contain genetically modified ingredients. While the FDA says they are safe and there is little scientific concern about the safety of those GMOs on the market, advocates for labeling say not enough is known about their risks. So far, Vermont is the only state set to require labeling. Maine and Connecticut have passed similar laws, but those measures don’t take effect unless neighboring states follow suit. Several other states could consider labeling bills this year.

Safety advocate asks Jeep fire investigation to be reopened BY TOM KRISHER AP Auto Writer

DETROIT – An auto safety advocate is calling on the government to reopen an investigation of rear-crash fires in older Jeep SUVs after finding at least 11 more deaths since the vehicles were recalled. The deaths show that the recall repair – installing a trailer hitch to protect gas tanks in low-speed crashes – hasn’t been effective, said Clarence Ditlow, head of the nonprofit Center for Auto Safety.

He is calling on the government to investigate, saying the Jeeps are unsafe and a remedy should be developed that saves lives. “As far as Fiat Chrysler is concerned, Jeeps can continue to crash and burn until they are all off the road,” Ditlow wrote in a letter to Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx dated Thursday. It’s been almost three years since Fiat Chrysler, which makes Jeeps, began recalling 1.56 million SUVs with plastic gas tanks that are mounted behind the rear

axle and can rupture in a crash, spilling gasoline. Ditlow said he found a total of 19 fire deaths in older Jeeps in a fatal accident database maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Eleven were in Jeeps that had been recalled, with eight more in SUVs not included in the recall, he said. The deaths since the June 2013 recall bring the number of people killed in fiery crashes involving the Jeeps to as many as 86. Before the recall, NHTSA counted 75 deaths. The recalled vehicles

include 1993-1998 Grand Cherokees and 2002 to 2007 Libertys. NHTSA spokesman Gordon Trowbridge said Friday that he had just seen the letter and couldn’t comment. The agency has fined Fiat Chrysler a total of $175 million in the past two years for moving too slowly on recalls or failing to report safety defects and deaths. Fiat Chrysler maintains that the Jeeps are just as safe as comparable vehicles from the same era when weighted by years of vehicle operation. Of the 100 car and

In this Sept. 9, 2014, photo, Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks during an announcement of new products in Cupertino, Calif. Faced with a federal judge’s order to help investigators break into an iPhone allegedly used by one of the San Bernardino, Calif., shooters, Apple may well argue that the request would place an unreasonable burden on the company. In fact, doing what the government asks is not likely to be a tough technical feat for Apple. But doing so might have dramatic consequences on the data security of the millions of iPhone users around the world. the company from the suggestion that it was protecting the privacy of a terrorist. “The FBI asked us for help in the days following the attack, and we have worked hard to support the government’s efforts to solve this horrible crime,” Cook said. “We have no sympathy for terrorists.” Cook also said the FBI’s latest demand went beyond previous requests for help: “The U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create,” Cook said. “They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone.” Cook introduced that radioactive word – “backdoor” – into the current debate, and the White House quickly rejected it. The pejorative term, describing a behind-the-scenes method hackers use to gain unauthorized access, has for years colored the discussion of how the government can obtain protected information or eavesdrop on encrypted communications from criminals or terrorists. The government is stressing that it wants help to unlock only the work-issued iPhone used by Syed Farook, who along with his wife killed 14 people in December. The FBI is “simply asking for something that would have an impact on this one device,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest.

But Apple says helping the U.S. bypass its encryption locks on Farook’s iPhone would threaten the privacy of all its customers. “While the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control,” Cook said, adding: “Ultimately, we fear that this demand would undermine the very freedoms and liberty our government is meant to protect.” On Wednesday, the Justice Department took the unusual step of responding to Cook’s statement. “It is unfortunate that Apple continues to refuse to assist the department in obtaining access to the phone of one of the terrorists involved in a major terror attack on U.S. soil,” spokeswoman Emily Pierce said. The back-and-forth marks an escalation of a dispute that, at least in public, has played out in mostly polite terms. FBI Director James Comey has been slow to criticize U.S. technology executives, describing them as “good people” who share the bureau’s commitment to public safety. In recent months, he foreshadowed a different approach by suggesting companies have the technical capability to help the FBI – but don’t have a business interest. “Lots of good people have designed their systems and their devices so that judges’ orders cannot be

complied with for reasons that I understand,” Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee one week after the California shootings. “I’m not questioning their motivations. The question we have to ask is, should they change their business model?”

can’t be reached, or their vehicles have been scrapped, according to a report filed with the government by Fiat Chrysler. The company has made 15.3 million attempts to reach owners by mail, telephone calls or email, spokesman Eric Mayne said. Fiat Chrysler has agreed to offer $1,000 above market value trade-in prices on a new vehicle to owners of 1993 to 1998 Grand Cherokees. Owners of both the recalled Liberty and Grand Cherokee SUVs would get $100 gift cards to have their vehicles repaired.

Chinese-owned brand Volvo is recalling about 59,000 cars THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BY TAMI ABDOLLAH AND ERIC TUCKER WASHINGTON – Battling in intense public broadsides, Apple Inc. and the government are making their cases before anyone steps into a courtroom over a judge’s order forcing Apple to help the FBI hack into an iPhone in a sensational terrorism case. Both sides are framing their statements in ways that foreshadow the high-profile legal arguments that pit digital privacy rights against national security interests – and could affect millions of cellphone users. Apple has until next Tuesday to protest in court the decision by U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheri Pym in California. But the public relations campaigns – pitting one of the world’s leading technology companies against the muscle of the U.S. government – are already underway. Is Apple adequately cooperating with federal agents investigating the deadly terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California? Is this simply a dispute to recover information from an iPhone 5C used by the gunman, or more broadly a fight affecting the privacy rights of innocent citizens who use Apple’s flagship product? Is this about profits or patriotism? It depends on who you ask, and key players include powerful institutions of government, politics and industry. The Justice Department fired its first salvos in court papers asking the judge to order Apple to create sophisticated software that the FBI could load onto the phone to bypass a self-destruct feature that erases all data after 10 consecutive, unsuccessful attempts to guess the unlocking passcode. Pointedly, prosecutors said Apple could help the FBI “but has declined to provide that assistance voluntarily,” and they said Apple could perform the task easily. That point is crucial because the government can’t compel a company’s help in some cases if doing so would be unreasonably burdensome, even though the U.S. would almost certainly pay Apple for the work. Apple CEO Tim Cook disputed the claims in his first public statement, distancing

SUV models from that era with the highest rear-crash fire death rates, the Liberty was lower than 24 models and the Grand Cherokee was lower than 60, according to FCA’s analysis of NHTSA data through 2010. The company, after sparring with NHTSA over the pace of recall repairs, agreed last July to make trade-in offers to the Jeep owners or pay them to have the hitches installed. Still, only 35 percent of the recalled Jeeps had been repaired by the end of 2015. Another 545,000 owners

has no information about any accidents caused as a result. Both the engine and electric system start up again immediately. He said the cars have been sold in chiefly Sweden, Britain and Germany. Owners will be asked by letter to contact their local dealership for a no-charge fix. Chinese company Geely Holding bought the Volvo brand in 2010.

Adults in Great Bend school incident failed to take charge W

hen teenagers misbehave, adults need to step in and offer some tough love. The past couple of weeks in Great Bend saw people waiting for the grown-ups to do just that. But it didn’t happen, leaving questions, turmoil and three girls handcuffed in a police car – all because the adults in charge didn’t step in the way they should have. It all started Feb. 6 on a USD 428 bus bringing the Great Bend High School boys swim team back to town after a meet. Reports surfaced that a freshman was attacked by older teammates during the bus ride. Some of the descriptions fit the legal definition of sexual assault. The Ellsworth County Sheriff ’s Department is investigating, because that’s where the bus was traveling when the abuse reportedly transpired. The mother of the student who said he was assaulted said there were four offenders, but only two were suspended. On Monday, students marched to the district office in Great Bend calling for action. Superintendent Brad Reed, the grownup in charge, showed little leadership. He mostly criticized the people making the reports and tried to say everything was fine and handled properly. The crowd of people protesting outside begged to differ with him. After giving a brief statement and refusing to answer questions from the public, Reed then began ordering students to disperse, resulting in the handcuffing and arrests of the three girls. Anyone who has raised their own teenagers knows there are several factors to

take into consideration when they misbehave. First, they lie. They’ll say anything to keep from getting in trouble. They blame others. It’s never their fault. Teenagers need tough love. They need to be shown that abuse of others isn’t tolerated and that sometimes even being a part of a group is enough to get in trouble. Problems could have been avoided with swift action. If one of the four accused offenders was suspended, they all should have been. All four at least should have been suspended from the swim team, preventing them from going to this weekend’s state swimming championships and banning them from further school activities pending the results of the criminal investigation. That would have sent a message that bullying behavior will not be tolerated. It also would have kept a volatile situation from getting out of hand. There probably wouldn’t even have been a protest the following Monday. If this had involved a teacher, would the situation have been handled differently? Usually it involves being suspended from work while the investigation continues. Teachers lose their jobs. Students should lose at least their extracurricular privileges. How can students, who may be victimized by bullies on a daily basis, trust administrators to protect them? The bullies hopefully have learned their lesson and cease this kind of behavior. But when surrounded by adults willing to accept their actions, that’s not a given. Here’s hoping next time the grownups will show up and take charge.

Sports Arena, Hutch, NJCAA make a mix that matches A

ny good multiple-group effort that stands the test of time has many positive traits, including the players getting along and communicating. That was shown this week when a 25-year extension was signed of the contract to conduct the National Junior College Athletic Association men’s basketball tournament in Hutchinson. It was the culmination of a flurry of activity that took place over the last few years when conversation turned to the possibility of the NJCAA moving the national tourney elsewhere because the deterioration, and lack, of modern amenities and handicap-accessibility at the current Sports Arena facilities. Although there was shock at the possibility of losing the tournament that’s been a centerpiece of the Hutchinson community for 67 years, it served as a wake-up call – and a needed one at that. The Sports Arena, opened in 1952, is, indeed, dated. It doesn’t have the meeting rooms, up-to-date locker rooms and other such items that modern arenas have. It started the conversation between the NJCAA, city officials, sponsors of the tournament and others. It prompted the formation of a committee to look into the Sports Arena and what could be done to fix it and keep the

tournament. That evolved into a plan for a $29.5-million face-lift to the current facility, along with an addition to include three practice gyms. Infrastructure will be upgraded, and air conditioning finally will be added, which will make the facility usable year-round. But the conversation went further. The Hutchinson City Council put the upgrade costs, to be paid through a 0.35-percent sales tax increase, before voters. They, in turn, gave a resounding “yes,” passing the sales tax increase by a wide margin. The tournament is important for many reasons. It’s a long-standing tradition that has brought untold numbers of people and millions of dollars to Hutchinson. Voters recognized that and strongly invited the NJCAA throngs back, where they can help pay for the renovations. The NJCAA in-turn did its part by committing to 25 more years in Hutchinson, based on the response for the Sports Arena upgrade. Mary Ellen Leicht, executive director of the NJCAA, says Hutchinson holds a special place in the association’s heart and that it is “excited to continue returning to Hutchinson every March.” Obviously, Hutchinson is looking forward to that return, too.


Impact of childhood trauma hard to fathom I had been thinking too much to begin with about those events of childhood that shape us into the adults we eventually become. The story out of Newton this week about parents who reportedly severely abused their three adoptive children from Peru didn’t help much. As we discussed the story in the newsroom, one particular detail jarred me: The officers found it peculiar when one child excessively praised the quality of a Wendy’s hamburger. They later discovered the children had been forced to compliment their mother, repeatedly and sincerely, on her meals or risk punishment for their “sins.” The malnourished and abused kids would get even less food if they didn’t seem grateful enough. I found myself imagining what life will look like for these children and how they will grow with this type of abuse at the center upon which all else is built. The thought of it made me sad. We are all shaped in one way or another by the magnified events of our childhoods, a time when the pathways in our brains are being forged and our thought processes established. For the lucky among us, these aren’t necessarily traumatic or grand events. Maybe a momentary embarrassment that produced a fear of public speaking. Or a brain freeze that cost the grade school spelling bee, which leaves us with some lingering anxiousness about our abilities or the idea that first place will always be just out of reach. Perhaps some small victory,

recognition from a teacher or kindness from a parent, friend or even a stranger at just the right moment left us with a feeling of worthiness and importance. As adults, most of us find balance between the magnified positive and negative experiences of our childhoods. We adopt the idea that our lives are our own. We might not be able to control past or future events, or how other people treat us, but we can control our reactions and our decisions. If we can’t find that ourselves, there’s an endless list of books to help us. Or therapy. Children live in the world that is created for them, and they lack the experience or knowledge to know if that world is right; until they are shown otherwise, it’s the only world that exists. A world that tells a child he is a chronic failure or disappointment produces an adult who believes he or she can’t do anything right. Conversely, a world that shows a child she is a shining light often yields an adult who sees abundant possibility and promise – and who believes it is there for her. Physical, emotional or sexual abuse of a child is like the work of a potter’s hands, and time is the kiln that forever sets the shape. A world that relentlessly and repeatedly hurts a child produces an adult who has built a moat around his heart

Caucus procedures show priorities of parties Kansas may not be a battleground state in the general election for president, but this year’s hypercompetitive party nominations are a different matter indeed. It is highly unlikely that any candidate will have either party’s nomination sewn up before the Kansans caucus on Saturday, March 5, so Kansas is very much in play during this year’s nomination free-for-all. Kansas joins early-voting Iowa this year in having remarkably different caucusing procedures for each party. The Republicans’ basic message seems to be: Let us make it easy and convenient for you to caucus but only if you are already a registered Republican. The Democrats, by contrast, have a much more open set of requirements for participants, who are invited to register to vote and/or change their party affiliation right there at the caucus. At the same time, the Democrats approach caucusing in the more traditional way. Their horse-trading process may showcase democracy in action, but that means Democratic caucus-goers should prepare to stay for about two hours that afternoon. The Republicans’ rules have turned their caucus experience into something resembling the party primaries in New Hampshire and most other states. Voters arrive, mark a secret, paper ballot, and leave. They even have an “uncommitted” option on the ballot for undecided voters.

Insight Kansas

Michael Smith Not only that, but the GOP invites voters to vote in any county caucus they choose. Those away from home, but still in Kansas, can simply caucus at the nearest location instead of returning home. There is also a provisional ballot for those not appearing on the voter rolls. Yet the Republicans’ easy in-easy out “virtual primary” does have a catch: Voters must have been registered to vote in Kansas as Republicans by Feb. 4 or they may not participate. After the caucus, Republican leaders assign delegates based on the results, using a proportional-representation formula. Those who wish to be convention delegates may self-nominate on the party’s website and party leaders will make the final call on who goes to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer. Kansas Democrats use the more traditional caucus approach, grouping the caucus-goers according to which candidate they are supporting – with uncommitted being an option – then eliminating any candidates under the 15-percent threshold. Next, those orphaned participants may regroup with one of the remaining candidates’ supporters. After this,

each attendee’s name is recorded along with which candidate they are supporting. Finally, delegates are selected by the caucus-goers themselves. Those chosen attend conventions in their congressional districts, some advance to a state convention, and finalists go to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this summer. Democrats also allocate delegates using a proportional-representation formula. These different procedures reflect the underlying characters of the two parties. Republicans are more organized, more orderly and faster, but they reserve more power for party leaders and are less available to new voters. Democrats are more welcoming, participatory and democratic, but their caucuses are also more time-consuming. At any rate, no matter which party one chooses, March 5 represents a rare opportunity for Kansans to carry significant weight in a wide-open presidential contest.

– or who has learned to strike the first blow in pre-emptive defense. A world that tells a child he or she is “bad” produces an adult who might be paralyzed by fear because he doubts his judgement. A world that denies a child love, attention and affection produces a vessel that seeks fulfillment that never can be found, no matter how it’s painted or placed on a different shelf. Traumatic events inflicted at such a young age largely will determine the arc of a life through much of adulthood. And while it’s true that all of us have bad experiences in life that must be overcome, there are those whose experiences don’t simply alter them, they create them. And so I wondered about these kids from Newton. Maybe with enough help they’ll develop layers of protection and adaptation to live and function in this so-called normal world. They might learn to distinguish between how their core instinctively tells them to react to the world and how they’ve learned they should react. They’ll come to understand the difference between a valid thought and one that’s borne from a lifetime of abuse, neglect, fear or trauma. And with work and determination maybe they’ll learn to function normally. Yet beneath all the layers of insulation built up around them and all the mechanisms they’ve created to push them forward in life, I can’t help but think that at the center there still will be an injured and scared child who still believes that offering enough praise might equal enough food.

Antonin Scalia’s successor

Without a center, how does business get done? “Things fall apart. The centre cannot hold.” – William Butler Yeats And so this is the presidential campaign of 2016. If it were a movie, it would be pornography. If it were a sporting event, it Leonard would be a Pitts cockfight. Email: lpitts@ If it were miamiherald. music, it com would be the sound of cats on a hot blackboard. In other words, it has not been the most high-minded affair. But beyond the fact that it has been ugly and dispiriting, the campaign has also come to feel ... ominous, like a portent of some dystopian future. You wonder if the superficial nastiness of it isn’t truly superficial at all, but rather, evidence of a grim new reality: that we are a nation of 323 million people in 50 states who not only are not united, but don’t particularly want to be. It is hard to escape a sense that we have disengaged from one another and that as a result, our politics has shrunken to its extremes, like two boxers who retreat to neutral corners to yell across the ring. Two men in particular embody this. The first, of course, is Donald Trump, who has channeled angry misanthropy into political power. The reality show impresario has pulled the GOP far to the right, using as his prod the inchoate, done-wrong, wantmy-country-back rage of those for whom change is always, by definition, threat. The second man is Bernie Sanders, who has channeled the angry populism of the political left into a movement that is no slouch for power itself. The Vermont senator has yanked the Democratic field – i.e., Hillary Clinton – far to the left, forcing her to compete for the affections of angry, tired-ofbeing-dumped-on 99 percenters who see democracy being stolen by Big Money and don’t like it. Don’t misunderstand the point. Sanders has given voice to concerns too often ignored by Republicans and paid lip service to by Democrats. So the argument here is not that there is equivalence between the extremes of left and right. No, the observation, really, is that they are both, well ... extremes. And that, apparently, that’s all our national politics has left. It is instructive to watch Clinton and Sanders bicker about which is the more ideologically pure. Until recently, that kind of quarrel was restricted to Republicans jousting over who was most “conservative” on issues like immigration and abortion. Now, apparently, Democrats, too, want their candidates to pledge allegiance to philosophical dogma. It raises a question: Whither the center? And if there is no center, how does the nation’s business get done? As ungovernable as the country has been under Barack Obama, a center-left pragmatist the Republicans made out to be the reincarnation of Che Guevara, it can only be worse under a leader whose ideological purity is zealously policed and for whom compromise is apostasy. One struggles to even imagine what the fall campaign will be like. Usually, candidates argue over who has the best ideas for solving a given set of problems. But in neutral corners America, there is not even consensus on what the problems are. Will we have Trump campaigning on Mexicans and Muslims, while Sanders rails about money and malfeasance? Will we be asked only to decide which makes us most angry and afraid? If so, whither hope? And here, Democrats will want it noted that they were not the first to abandon the center. Let the record so state. The GOP eschewed all claim to that ground long ago and even purged itself of members who dared wander too close. Still, the question of who is to blame for a politics of extremism is less compelling than the question of what that politics portends. Two boxers yelling at one another from neutral corners makes for great theater. But the fighting is done in the center of the ring. Leonard Pitts is a columnist for The Miami Herald.

Win one for Nino WASHINGTON – Let’s understand something about the fight to fill the Supreme Court seat of Antonin (“Nino”) Scalia. This is about nothing but raw power. Any appeal you hear to high principle is phony – brazenly, embarrassingly so. In Year Seven of the George W. Bush administration, Sen. Chuck Schumer publicly opposed filling any Supreme Court vacancy until Bush left office. (“Except in extraordinary circumstances.” None such arose. Surprise!) Today he piously denounces Republicans for doing exactly the same for a vacancy created in Year Eight of Barack Obama. Republicans, say the Democrats, owe the president deference. Elections have consequences and Obama won re-election in 2012. Yes. And the Republicans won the Senate in 2014 – if anything, a more proximal assertion of popular will. And both have equal standing in appointing a Supreme Court justice. It’s hard to swallow demands for deference from a party that for seven years has cheered Obama’s serial constitutional depredations: His rewriting the immigration laws by executive order (stayed by the courts); his reordering the energy economy by regulation (stayed by the courts); his enacting the nuclear deal with Iran, the most important treaty of this generation, without the required two-thirds of the Senate (by declaring it an executive agreement). Minority Leader Harry Reid complains about the Senate violating precedent if it refuses a lame-duck nominee. This is rich. It is Reid who just two years ago overthrew all precedent by abolishing the filibuster for most judicial and high executive appointments. In the name of what grand constitutional principle did Reid resort to a parliamentary

Charles Krauthammer Email: letters @charleskraut maneuver so precedent-shattering that it was called the nuclear option? None. He did it in order to pack the U.S. Circuit Court for the District of Colombia with liberals who would reliably deflect challenges to Obamacare. On Tuesday, Obama loftily called upon Congress to rise above ideology and partisanship in approving his nominee. When asked how he could square that with his 2006 support of a filibuster to stop the appointment of Samuel Alito, Obama replied with a four-minute word salad signifying nothing. There is no answer. It was situational constitutional principle, i.e., transparent hypocrisy. As I said, this is all about raw power. When the Democrats had it, they used it. The Republicans are today wholly justified in saying they will not allow this outgoing president to overturn the balance of the Supreme Court. The matter should be decided by the coming election. Does anyone doubt that Democrats would be saying exactly that if the circumstances were reversed? Which makes this Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s moment. He and his cohorts have taken a lot of abuse from “anti-establishment” candidates and media for not using their congressional majorities to repeal Obamacare, defund Planned Parenthood, block executive orders, etc. What was the 2014 election about, they say? We won and got nothing. We were lied to and betrayed by a corrupt leadership beholden to the “Washington cartel.”

As it happens, under our Madisonian Constitution, the opposition party cannot govern without the acquiescence of the president, which it will not get, or a two-thirds majority of the Congress, which it does not have. But no matter. Things are different now. Appointing a Supreme Court justice is a two-key operation. The president proposes, the Senate disposes. There is no reason McConnell cannot hold the line. And he must. The stakes here – a radical generation-long reversal of direction of the Supreme Court – are the highest this Senate will ever face. If McConnell succeeds, he will have resoundingly answered the “what did we get for 2014?” question. Imagine if the Senate were now in Democratic hands. What we got in 2014 was the power to hold on to Scalia’s seat and to the court’s conservative majority. But only for now. Blocking an Obama nominee buys just a year. The final outcome depends on November 2016. If the GOP nominates an unelectable or unconservative candidate, a McConnell victory will be nothing more than a stay of execution. In 2012, Scalia averred that he would not retire until there was a more ideologically congenial president in the White House. “I would not like to be replaced,” he explained, “by someone who immediately sets about undoing everything that I’ve tried to do for 25 years.” Scalia never got to choose the timing of his leaving office. Those who value the legacy of those now-30 years will determine whether his last wish will be vindicated. Let McConnell do his thing. Then in November it’s for us to win one for Nino. Charles Krauthammer is a columnist for The Washington Post Writers Group.

Few people in modern history have fulfilled their oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution” more than the late Justice Antonin Scalia. Scalia was so well respected that the Senate voted 98-0 in 1986 to confirm him. These days it would be difficult to get a unanimous vote in support of Mother’s Day. Cal Thomas It doesn’t take a forEmail: tcaedi tune teller tors@tribpub. to predict com the scenario that would present itself if the political dynamics were reversed and a Republican president were in the White House with a Democratic Senate majority. Democrats would be demanding no justice be confirmed until the next president takes office and they would make it a major campaign issue. That is what Sen. Charles Schumer, D-New York, said in 2007: “We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court, except in extraordinary circumstances.” That was 19 months before the 2008 election. It is a little more than eight months away from the next election. The president is not about to nominate a conservative and should not be expected to. Will he pick someone who is a closet liberal, daring the Senate to reject that person, or will he choose an openly liberal person and challenge the Senate to block his nominee? If ever there was a time for Senate Republicans to stand firm, this is it. Initial signs are good. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, issued a statement that the next justice should not be confirmed until after a new president takes office. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said much the same. Some are speculating that President Obama, who quickly announced he will name a successor to Scalia “in due time,” might try to make a recess appointment after the current Senate session expires Jan. 3, 2017, should the Senate refuse to confirm his nominee. How long would such a justice serve, and who would decide? When President Eisenhower appointed William Brennan to the court during a congressional recess, Brennan stayed for nearly 34 years. For the Left, this is an opportunity to impose a liberal agenda on the nation for perhaps as many as 40 years. For the Right, it will determine whether conservatives will have the power to stop an agenda they believe is proving ruinous to the country – economically, legally and morally. The stakes could not be higher. Justice Scalia summarized his constitutional philosophy in a May 2011 interview with California Lawyer magazine: “Certainly the Constitution does not require discrimination on the basis of sex. The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesn’t. Nobody ever thought that that’s what it meant. Nobody ever voted for that. If the current society wants to outlaw discrimination by sex, hey, we have things called legislatures, and they enact things called laws. You don’t need a constitution to keep things up-to-date. All you need is a legislature and a ballot box. You don’t like the death penalty anymore, that’s fine. You want a right to abortion? There’s nothing in the Constitution about that. But that doesn’t mean you cannot prohibit it. Persuade your fellow citizens it’s a good idea and pass a law. That’s what democracy is all about. It’s not about nine superannuated judges who have been there too long, imposing these demands on society.” It will be difficult for a Republican president to find someone as good as Scalia. If President Obama puts another liberal on the court, tipping its balance, that person is likely to undo all that Scalia has done to honor the Constitution. The Senate should push the hold button and let the presidential candidates take it to the people to decide in November. Justice Scalia would have approved of such an approach.

States seek private financial help to fix social problems BY SUSAN HAIGH Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. – A growing number of states and local governments are turning to an unconventional method of financing possible fixes to big social problems, motivated by tight budgets and little incentive to take a chance on initiatives without a guarantee of results. On Tuesday, officials in Connecticut, South Carolina and Colorado announced new public/private arrangements to fund so-called “pay for success” projects that aim to help families struggling with drug addiction, improve health outcomes for poor mothers and their children and reduce chronic homelessness. The concept, often referred to as “social impact bonds,” involves a government entity teaming up with a private intermediary that develops the project, identifies effective programs already being utilized and raises the capital from philanthropic-minded investors. If the initiative produces specific results over multiple years, then the state or local government pays back the investment with a small rate of return. But if the project doesn’t meet those results, the taxpayers typically are not on the hook financially. “It’s critically important in this time, when, as our governor has said many times, we’re facing a new

reality – a new reality of budget restrictions, but the same if not growing challenges in our communities and the need to invest even more,” said Hartford, Connecticut, Mayor Luke Bronin, at Tuesday’s announcement of the “Connecticut Family Stability Pay for Success Project.” The 4.5-year, $11.5-million initiative will fund teams of two clinicians and a family support worker that will make in-home visits several times each week to families struggling with drug abuse. Up to 500 families involved with the state’s Department of Children and Families, with children age 6 and younger, will be targeted for the services which stress positive parent-child interactions. Social Finance, a Boston-based, non-profit organization, raised the capital funding needed for the initiative. The group’s sister organization, Social Finance UK, was founded in 2007 and launched the first social impact bond in 2010. The U.S. program was founded in 2011 and has been identifying programs that can help fix social problems, looking at best practices on how to affect change and securing funding to get it done. If the program meets specific goals, such as reducing the likelihood of children being removed from the home due to abuse and neglect, then the group’s financial

backers – typically foundations, wealthy individuals and institutional investors – will get their principal back with interest, enabling them to reinvest in other projects. If those benchmarks aren’t reached, the Social Finance investors will pick up the tab. “Government wins, because they only pay for results. Investors win, because they get their money back and achieve a financial return and social impact. And nonprofits see it as a way to get capital to expand services,” said Tracy Palandjian, co-founder and CEO of Social Finance U.S., which developed and raised capital for the South Carolina project. That project will pair 3,200 low-income, first-time mothers over six years with specially trained nurses who will make home visits to improve the health and well-being of the children and mothers. The concept of such “pay for success” projects is relatively new, beginning about five years ago in the United Kingdom. Including the three announced Tuesday, there are about dozen programs that are still underway in the U.S. and more in development. Projects in Colorado, Massachusetts, California and Ohio deal with homelessness issues, while other projects in Illinois and Utah address early childhood education. A second Massachusetts project tries

One project, the Rikers Island Recidivism Reduction Initiative, was canceled midway because it did not meet specific accountability benchmarks. Palandjian said she believes that cancelling the Rikers program because it wasn’t hitting its goals marks a success for social impact bond projects, which she acknowledges is “a very young sector” that still hasn’t seen the first project in the U.K. reach completion. Governments, she noted, typically continue funding programs whether they work or not. “This gives government a way to try new things,” she said. “It’s politically hard

Man pleads guilty to celebrity email hacking THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES – An Oregon man who accessed hundreds of email accounts and stole explicit photos of celebrities has pleaded guilty to a felony hacking charge in Los Angeles. Andrew Helton of Astoria, Oregon, faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to stealing

nude or explicit photos from 13 people, including some unidentified celebrities. The plea was entered Thursday. Hundreds of stolen nude images of stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis have been posted online in recent years. FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says Helton’s is

a separate case and that none of the images he stole are believed to have leaked online. Helton’s attorney Shanon L. Gray had no immediate comment Friday. Prosecutors say Helton’s “phishing” scheme involved sending victims emails they thought were from Apple or Google. The messages

asked victims to verify their email accounts by clicking on a link that took them to a phony website, where Helton collected their usernames and passwords. Prosecutors say Helton used the information to access more than 360 email accounts. Helton, 29, is scheduled to be sentenced June 2.

services to at least 250 chronically homeless individuals. One City Council member raised concerns that it could ultimately cost more money than if Denver contracted with providers on its own.








Jayhawks’ Manhattan hex halted BY DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer

MANHATTAN – Secondranked Kansas had to show plenty of fight to hold off Kansas State on Saturday. Perry Ellis has the wounds to prove it. The Jayhawks’ leading scorer missed a long stretch in the second half with a gouge behind his right ear that required 12 stitches. Then, Ellis got scratched in the eye by teammate Wayne Selden Jr. during a flurry with the game in the balance, sending the senior forward to the bench once again.

Kansas wound up getting just enough from everyone else down the stretch for a 72-63 victory. “We knew once we lost Perry, we had to come together as a team, do some things differently,” point guard Frank Mason III said, “and the guys off the bench did a good job of coming in and making plays.” Ellis still managed 14 points, and Mason had 15 as the Jayhawks (23-4, 11-3 Big 12) squandered most of a 17-point second-half lead before holding on for their first win at Kansas State in three years.

Hutchinson High’s Hagen Kent was the only regional wrestling champion from Reno County, as the 126-pound senior won all three of his matches Saturday at the Class 6A regional in Dodge City. Kent won the title by edging Derby’s Brandon Becker 7-5 in the championship match. Before that, Kent pinned Garden City’s Sammy Guevara and then beat Campus’ Greg Bentley 10-4. Hutchinson had three other state qualifiers. Buhler had three qualifiers at the 4A Smoky Valley regional, and Nickerson also had a qualifier. Hutchinson’s 106-pound sophomore Brian Gates advanced to the championship match after a bye and an 18-6 semifinal win, but then he lost 7-5 to Dodge City’s Joel Ostrom. Senior Lukas Schweigert (170) overcame a semifinal loss to win a pair of consolation matches. He pinned Derby’s Blaine Nelson to

earn his ticket to state, and then he pinned Wichita South’s Dillon Huckabey for third place. At 195, junior Dylan Chesterman navigated one of the state’s toughest weight classes to finish fourth and qualify. He beat Dodge City’s Ansony Quezada to qualify, and then fell to Wichita South’s Tyrekus Birch in the thirdplace match. Buhler had a regional runner-up in 106-pounder Adam Whitson, who fell 8-0 to Abilene’s Tanner McGivney. Justin Hershberger (132) won two consolation matches after a semifinal loss to take third, rolling by Goodland’s Dawson Ensign 13-0 for third place. Clayton Peterson (160) also finished third, as he pinned Abilene’s Kevin Wilson in the third-place match. Nickerson’s Chance Shull qualified for state by beating Goodland’s Reyes Bustillos 11-3 in the consolation semifinals. He lost 6-4 to Hays’ Trey VanPelt for third place.

ho is this team? This is not the same team who many wrote off to not win a single game, only to win its first in the third game of the season by 18 points over Plainville. These are not the same tenacious Panthers who fell behind by 11 points to Ell-Saline, but roared back to win on a buzzer-beating put-back shot by sophomore Sophie Mader the very next night. This is not the same Nickerson team who exhausted every ounce of dripping sweat in front of the raucous Panther Pride crowd in an overtime win over Halstead. Even in Nickerson’s narrow escape over Chaparral, the team’s intensity seeped away with every Chaparral point. Nickerson is free falling, losing six games in a row with two games left in the season. The teasing taste of victory and accomplishing a season of many firsts seem to have cast over a shade of below-average contentment. But coach Brittany Hines disagrees.

Kennedy fitting in with Series champion Royals THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SURPRISE, Ariz. – Ian Kennedy is liking how things look with the Kansas City Royals. Kennedy was the Royals’ most expensive free agent offseason addition, signing a five-year, $70 million contract last month with the defending World Series champs. That is the most money the Royals have ever given a pitcher. “They make it real easy on me,” Kennedy said of fitting in with his teammates. “These guys are really close. You can’t help but be close, going to the World Series back-to-back years.

“It seems like they have really good relationships. They are buddies. They are friends. They just happen to play baseball together. So it’s an easy environment for me to walk in. They make like you’ve played with them before. I’ve never met some of these guys, but they make you feel pretty comfortable.” Kennedy went 9-15 with a 4.28 ERA in 30 starts last season with the San Diego Padres. “It started out pretty rough,” Kennedy said. Kennedy had a 7.15 ERA in his first eight starts, allowing 12 home runs in 39 innings. He exited his first start in the third inning with a strained left hamstring

and landed on the disabled list for the first time since 2009, when he had aneurysm surgery in his right armpit while with the New York Yankees. Kennedy returned to the rotation on April 25 and gave up eight runs on eight hits, including three home runs, in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. In a May 28 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, Kennedy surrendered seven runs on seven hits, three of them home runs, two walks and a hit batter in 3 2/3 innings. “I was still trying to adjust to (the hamstring injury), Kennedy said. “You can tell from my numbers the first month after coming

off the DL. That’s the first time I had to deal with something like that, especially with your leg. For me getting over that front leg is really important.” Once over the hamstring issue, Kennedy comprised a 2.31 ERA in June, 3.38 in July and 2.30 in August. “I kind of looked at my season from June on,” Kennedy said. “After June came, I felt normal again, like I felt out of synch every other start until June and (then) I felt really good.” The Padres scored two or fewer runs in 10 of Kennedy’s starts. He was 1-7 in those games. Plus the Padres’ defense was porous.

“People talk about the Royals’ defense, but their offense is really good,” Kennedy said. “It’s nice to have that. It brings up your confidence and your ability because just everybody else is playing higher and not playing for themselves. “Playing on this team, also, elevates your level. Playing on a team that plays this well and plays this close together, I just know by playing on other winning teams in the past, you play better. They’re not playing for themselves, but they’re playing for the other teammates. You just play better.” Kennedy’s best season was 2011, going 21-4 with a

2.88 ERA with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Yankees drafted Kennedy in the first round in 2006 and his first big league pitching coach was Dave Eiland, who is the Royals’ pitching coach. “Knowing Dave before for me was nice,” Kennedy said. “It’s nice to have that relationship already built.” Kennedy will likely be the Royals’ No. 3 starter behind Yordano Ventura and Edinson Volquez. “He’s an innings eater,” manager Ned Yost said. “He’s a guy that throws strikes, which plays well to our style of play with an athletic defense, just a very solid performer.”

Source: Gallardo, Baltimore reach $35M, 3-year deal BY BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer

The Baltimore Orioles filled a big hole in their rotation, reaching agreement with free agent Yovani Gallardo on a three-year, $35 million contract Saturday. The deal came on the second day of workouts for Baltimore pitchers and catchers at spring training in Sarasota, Florida. Gallardo takes the spot that opened when Wei-Yin Chen became a free agent and signed with Miami. Gallardo went 13-11 with a 3.42 ERA for Texas last season. The right-hander turns 30 later this month. A person familiar with the deal confirmed the terms to The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because

the contract hadn’t been announced. Other media outlets reported the agreement earlier in the day. The Orioles will forfeit their first-round pick in the June draft, the 14th choice overall. Texas had made a qualifying offer of $15.8 million to Gallardo that he turned down. Gallardo has pitched at least 180 innings in each of the last seven seasons. An All-Star in 2010 with Milwaukee, he is 102-75 with a 3.66 ERA in his nine-year major league career. Gallardo is the first major league free agent from another team that Baltimore has added since finishing 8181 last season. The Orioles are also trying to sign outfielder Dexter Fowler, who played for the Chicago Cubs last year.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Buddy Hield helped get No. 3 Oklahoma out of a temporary lull. The nation’s second-leading scorer had 29 points to lead the Sooners to a 76-62 victory over No. 10 West Virginia on Saturday. Oklahoma (21-5, 9-5) stayed close in the Big 12 race, tying the Mountaineers and Baylor for second place behind Kansas. The Sooners were coming off consecutive losses to Kansas and Texas Tech and three losses in four games after spending three weeks at No. 1. In a second half of several scoring swings, Hield helped put Oklahoma in control. He capped a 9-0 run with a 3-pointer to put the Sooners ahead 61-52 with 5:22 left, silencing the home crowd. “For the past few weeks we’ve been struggling,” Hield said. “Coach (Lon Kruger) got on us. Everybody wanted to come to West Virginia and prove something. “You look at the tape from the Texas Tech and Kansas game, we didn’t have fun competing. This game, we really had fun.” Kruger isn’t sure whether Oklahoma can make up enough ground in the league race with four games to play. The Sooners were already swept by Kansas. “Every game is important when you’re a couple of games behind as we are,” Kruger said. “We’re coming up on March and we may be too far back now. But still, we can’t do anything about last week. We’ve got to do what we can to take care of business moving forward. Last two weeks of conference play coming up and every one of them is going to be really tough.” Jaysean Paige scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half for West Virginia (20-7, 9-5), but the Mountaineers couldn’t answer with their own decisive run.

Hield often got ahead of West Virginia’s defense for layups, and nifty passing in the halfcourt enabled him to get open outside for shots. He made five 3-pointers to give him 109 this season, breaking the school record of 105 set by Nate Erdmann in 1997. Isaiah Cousins added 12 points and Jordan Woodard had 11 for the Sooners. Tarik Phillip had 17 points for the Mountaineers, who were alone in first place two weeks ago and have lost three of four. After leading only briefly in the first half, West Virginia scored 11 points in the first 2 minutes of the second half to grab the lead, only to see the Sooners go on a 17-4 run. West Virginia put together its final burst behind Paige, who made four free throws, a fadeaway jumper and a fast-break layup to knot the score at 52-all with 7:48 left. But the Mountaineers went nearly 4 minutes until their next basket. “They made more shots than we made,” West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said. “They’ve got Buddy Hield and we don’t.” TIP-INS Oklahoma: The Sooners had nine blocked shots. ... They improved to 6-3 this season against ranked teams. ... Oklahoma swept the regular-season series after beating the Mountaineers 70-68 on Jan. 16 in Norman, Oklahoma. West Virginia: The Mountaineers forced nine turnovers, half their season average of more than 18 per game. ... West Virginia shot 33 percent (21 of 63) from the field and was outrebounded 48-37. MILES AWAY West Virginia guard Daxter Miles Jr. missed his second straight game with a strained right hamstring. He is listed as day-to-day. Teyvon Myers again started in his place. Huggins said after the game he had no timetable on Miles’ return.

Stephen Hurt and Barry Brown scored 13 points apiece for the Wildcats (15-12, 4-10), who got within 65-62 with less than 2 minutes to go. But that’s when Devonte Graham hit his first field goal after five straight misses, and the Jayhawks pulled away from the foul line to secure the victory. “They’re so unselfish and they play together,” Kansas State coach Bruce Weber said. “They have a lot of guys who can make plays, and when you have guys coming off the bench, that makes a big difference.” After third-ranked Oklahoma beat No. 10 West Virginia earlier in the day, Kansas has a two-game lead over the Sooners, Mountaineers and No. 25 Baylor with four games left

in the conference race. The Jayhawks have won at least a share of 11 consecutive Big 12 championships. “We’re in decent position,” Mason said, “but we’re not satisfied with the team we are right now.” The Jayhawks trailed 2521 before going on a 12-0 run to take control, and Ellis scored at the rim in the closing seconds of the first half to give the defending Big 12 champions a 39-29 lead. The story of the first half wasn’t the score, though. It was the fouls. The teams combined for 21 of them, resulting in a disjointed 20 minutes that lacked any sort of rhythm. Kansas State had a trio of players with two fouls apiece, and Austin Budke had three, while the Jayhawks paraded to the foul line 19 times – yep, nearly once per minute. Weber was probably hoarse by the time he reached the locker room. The Jayhawks stretched

the lead to 52-35 early in the second half, and still led 55-41 when Ellis was banged under the rim and blood began pouring from a cut behind his right ear. The Jayhawks’ leading scorer spent the next 6 minutes getting treatment for it in the locker room. “The serious deal is Wayne scratched him in the eye,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “We’ll go back and have an eye doctor look at it. If it’s a scratch, he’ll be OK, but we just don’t know.” Kansas State took advantage of Ellis’ absence, pounding the ball to Hurt and D.J. Johnson in the paint. The duo combined to score 16 consecutive points for the Wildcats, and the 6-foot-11 Hurt’s third 3-pointer got Bramlage Coliseum rocking and made it 62-58 with 4 minutes left. But the Wildcats couldn’t make a stop when they needed it down the stretch. “It was great to have the crowd behind us,” Hurt

said. “I just wish we could have gotten the win.” CLOSE CALLS Kansas State has lost eight games by 10 points or fewer, including double-overtime defeats against West Virginia and Baylor. “When we spot teams a lot of points, it’s hard to come back,” senior guard Justin Edwards said. TIP-INS Kansas: Landen Lucas and Jamari Traylor fouled out in the final minutes. ... Mason reached the 1,000-point mark for his career. ... The Jayhawks wound up shooting 30 free throws. Kansas State: Johnson and Edwards scored 11 points apiece. ... Johnson was 9 of 10 from the foul line. ... Kansas State has not won three straight over Kansas at home since 1981-83. UP NEXT Kansas visits No. 25 Baylor on Tuesday night. Kansas State plays No. 24 Texas on Monday night.

Chiefs coach Reid has knee replacement surgery THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid has had knee replacement surgery and will not attend the NFL’s

scouting combine in Indianapolis next week. The Chiefs confirmed to The Associated Press on Saturday that Reid had the procedure. Reid also had knee replacement surgery

last year that caused him to miss the Senior Bowl. The 58-year-old coach’s absence from Indianapolis should not have much of an effect on the Chiefs’ draft plans. While he offers general

manager John Dorsey considerable input into the decision-making, he no longer has final say in personnel like he had in Philadelphia. This three-day draft begins April 28 in Chicago.

Hutchinson Community College’s Lakin Preisner puts up a shot past Barton’s Kilee Harris during the second half of their game on Saturday at the Sports Arena.

Women •฀From Page D1 The No. 14 Blue Dragons (25-3, 15-3) go into Monday’s showdown at Garden City (20-9, 14-4) with an opportunity to win the title outright. The Broncbusters, coming off an 81-54 loss at Cloud County on Saturday, need a win to split the season series with Hutchinson and claim a piece of the championship. Hutchinson took care of the first order of business by burying Barton (14-16, 6-13). The intent was to slow Hutchinson guards Inja Butina and Taylor Stahly. In part, Barton accomplished that – that pair scored 22 points, but also turned the ball over 10 times. But the Blue Dragons owned the paint instead. Madden and freshman Kirea Rogers, the Blue Dragons’ starting post players, combined for 33 points and 23 rebounds. “That was disappointing.

Men •฀From Page D1 Pinder entered the game 3-for-21 from long range this season. He harbored the physical talent to shoot a much better percentage, but more often than not, the shots clanked off the rim. Timing is everything for Hutchinson coach Steve Eck. If the attempt comes through ball movement and open looks, Pinder’s shots outside the arc are permissible. “He can shoot them, as long as they’re within the offense,” Eck said. “I don’t want any quick 3-pointers.” Timely 3-pointers were a theme for Hutchinson. The Blue Dragons shot 61 percent for the game and 52 percent on 3-point attempts (11-for-21). Freshman Shakur Juiston pocketed his first 3-pointer of the season – coming in the Blue Dragons’ 29th game – to knot the game at 13. Midway through the first half, Pinder launched his first effort from deep. He connected, cutting Barton’s lead to 21-18. Hutchinson carried a 43-37 advantage into halftime after Akbar Hoffman buried an off-balance 3-pointer before the buzzer. “It was just a last-second shot. I just threw it up,” Hoffman said. Barton tied the game at 48 three minutes into the second half on a jumper from Anthony Smith. Hutchinson freshman James Conley answered 14 seconds later with a triple to reclaim the lead. Then Pinder’s rising

HCC’s Mandy Madden (11) is embraced by her teammates following their game against Barton. Madden is the only sophomore on the team and was recognized on “sophomore” night. We talked about that after the game,” said Barton coach Trevor Rolfs. “When we’re playing a team, in our estimation, that has one of the best point guards in the league and probably the best

shooter in the league, you focus on that.” Madden contributed eight points in the first half as Hutchinson held a 33-22 halftime lead. The Blue Dragons scored the first eight points of the third quarter, all in the paint, to pull ahead by 19. Lakin Preisner made a drive to the basket for two, then followed with a put-back bucket on the next possession. Kyla Williams scored on a post-up. Rogers capped the 8-0 run with a smooth move in the paint. “They’re smaller than us. We had the advantage, so we were looking inside,” Rogers said. Hutchinson demanded Barton respect its post game, and then capitalized on the Cougars from the outside. Stahly canned three 3-pointers in the third quarter, the last of which pumped the lead to 64-39. “We definitely had a size advantage against Barton. We attacked inside to start the game,” said Hutchinson coach John Ontjes. “Of course, they went

THE QUICK HIT NO. 7 HUTCHINSON CC 94, BARTON CC 77 KEY STAT: The Blue Dragons shot 61 percent for the game, including 52 percent (11-for-21) from 3-point range. TURNING POINT: Barton tied the game at 48, but Hutchinson’s James Conley answered with a 3-pointer from the top of the arc to take back the lead. The Blue Dragons led the rest of the way. PLAYER OF THE GAME: Hutchinson sophomore Keanu Pinder stuffed the stat sheet, providing 16 points, six rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks. HE SAID IT: “I think everyone was mentally locked in from the start. We had a job, and everyone was conident.” – Hutchinson sophomore Keanu Pinder on the team shooting 61 percent. UP NEXT: Hutchinson (26-3, 15-3 in the Jayhawk) has a quick turnaround, traveling to Garden City (17-12, 9-9) on Monday. Barton (18-12, 10-9) concluded its regular season. The Cougars earned a Region 6 home playoff game against a to-be-determined opponent. confidence took over. He attempted his second 3-pointer at the 15:12 mark of the second half. That quietly slipped through the net for a 56-50 lead. He gave it another try two minutes later. He was spot on again, and the Blue Dragons were ahead 63-52. “He was just hot tonight. Those shots right there are shots he usually hits,” Hoffman said. “I have no doubt in Keanu making that shot.” The long-range slump that hindered Pinder the majority of this season was strictly a confidence issue, Pinder said. He has shown deep range in practice, but it was not carrying over into games. Against Barton, he made more 3-pointers than anyone else on the team. “I’ve just been working a lot, and my shot is starting to fall again,” Pinder said.

With the win, Hutchinson controls its own fate heading into a road battle at Garden City (17-12, 9-9). If the Blue Dragons come out victorious, they will qualify for the NJCAA Tournament. “We’re just trying to take it one game at a time,” Eck said. “We’re just trying to take care of ourselves.” NO. 7 HUTCHINSON CC 94, BARTON CC 77 Barton CC (18-12, 10-9) Dentmond 4-10 1-4 9, Dorn 3-10 0-0 7, McMillan 3-5 0-0 8, Windholz 3-6 3-3 9, Acuff 3-4 0-0 9, Barbee 2-8 0-1 5, Smith 2-4 3-4 7, Hunt 2-3 0-0 4, Charles 8-14 1-2 19.

THE QUICK HIT NO. 14 HUTCHINSON CC 81, BARTON CC 59 KEY STAT: The Blue Dragons won, while elsewhere Garden City lost at Cloud County. That guarantees at least a share of the Jayhawk Conference crown for Hutchinson as it heads into its inale at Garden City. TURNING POINT: Hutchinson pounded the paint for eight straight points to open the third quarter to jump ahead 41-22. PLAYER OF THE GAME: Hutchinson freshman Kirea Rogers provided 20 points and a career-high 16 rebounds. HE SAID IT: “It just crushes you.” – Barton coach Trevor Rolfs on Hutchinson’s second efforts on offense. UP NEXT: The Blue Dragons (25-3, 15-3 in the Jayhawk) will try to secure the conference title outright at Garden City (20-9, 14-4) on Monday. Garden City can score a split with a victory. Barton (14-16, 6-13) is done with the regular season, and will be on the road to begin the Region 6 Tournament. to zone to kind of protect the inside, and that allows us to make some 3-pointers.” The third quarter was an offensive barrage from the Blue Dragons, who tallied 34 points – more than they produced in the entire first half. The Blue Dragons wrecked Barton on the

boards, out-rebounding the Cougars 42-23. Rogers hauled in a career-high 16 rebounds. Hutchinson found 14 points on second-chance opportunities. Barton’s regular season is complete. The Cougars will open the Region 6 Tournament on the road

against a to-be-determined opponent. “Having a couple days to rest the legs, and have a couple days to get ready,” Rolfs said. “Everybody is 0-0 starting Tuesday morning.” Hutchinson has one more game. If the Blue Dragons win it, they will earn a bye and not have to play another game at home this season. If this is the last one – and Madden assures that it is – this victory came the way she wanted. “It’s awesome.

Column •฀From Page D1 “Right now they are kind of mentally stuck,” Hines said. “We’re plateauing right now and we can’t do that. We have to keep increasing and keep improving. I think its just a time of the season where some of them may be burnt out. That’s what we’re battling right now.” A mental struggle would explain being only down five points to Hillsboro at halftime, only to lose the game by 17, or leading Smoky Valley by one, yet somehow finding a way to lose by nine, or a head-scratching scoreless first quarter against Pratt. Nickerson’s confidence fades into the next scene that only repeats the previous act, another loss. They’ve developed a case of stage-fright instead of conquering their reoccurring fears to succeed and win. At this point, Nickerson should not be afraid to win. They’ve done it. They know they can do it. Hines said her team settles into a certain spot in the game where the other team sparks a run and gains the momentum. She added that the girls start to shut down and the switch to turn off the other team’s momentum eludes them. “They just need to find it in themselves to push harder when we’re struggling rather than just laying down and accepting it,” Hines said during practice Thursday. The Panthers found themselves up again at halftime over Lyons Friday. After scoring just 28 points against Larned Tuesday, Nickerson was up 25-23 to start the third quarter. Then it was wash, rinse, repeat. Lyons made a run. Lyons gained the momentum. Lyons won by 11 points. Assistant coach Kim Patterson wants the team

SPORTS to develop a killer instinct whether they are up by 20 points or up by one. “They’ve never been taught to step on somebody’s throat,” Patterson said. “They want to play. They want to be in the game, but they’ve never been taught to throttle somebody.” Patterson doesn’t believe a sense of contentment or a “we’ve done enough” attitude has crept into the mind of the players, but acknowledged that they should be proud of themselves for all their hard work. Still, Patterson wants results and the team hasn’t yielded those results in the past six games. “I don’t know what it’s going to take, but we need one person to step up and show we’re not going to lose again,” Patterson adamantly said. Mader tried. She scored a career high 20 points against Lyons, but the sophomore can’t do it alone. Tara Davis continues to be a terror with another three-block performance. Denis Ortiz was aggressive all game long, but it wasn’t enough to slow down Lyons. Three of Nickerson’s four wins have been on the road. A place where junior Shelby Jackson said the team gets to prove to the opposing team and their fans that they are the better team. Junior Leslie Ortiz doesn’t care where the wins come from. “A win is a win,” Ortiz said. “I’ll take it however I can get it, but it would be nice to get a win at home just so that everyone that sees us often gets to see us win.” Nickerson will have the chance to win its final home game of the season on Senior Night Tuesday against the formidable Haven Wildcats. Nickerson will have to rise to the occasion in front of its home crowd for the last time. Kelton Brooks is a sports reporter for The Hutchinson News. Email: kbrooks@

Outdoors Grand Canyon officials face discipline BY FELICIA FONSECA Associated Press

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – The top two officials at Grand Canyon National Park are among those facing disciplinary action following a federal report that found they violated policies on reporting and investigating allegations of sexual harassment in the park’s river district. The National Park Service’s Intermountain Region director, Sue Masica, declined Thursday to say what specific actions would be taken against Superintendent Dave Uberuaga, and his deputy Diane Chalfant. The possibilities, in general, range from a warning letter, a reprimand, and suspension to termination, she said. “You kind of have to match the severity of the action by the individual with the previous records to what’s appropriate for the particular circumstance,” she said. “I’ll be looking at all of that.” A complaint filed in 2014 by 13 former and current Grand Canyon employees prompted an investigation by the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Office of Inspector General. The complaint alleged a 15-year pattern of abuse in the river district on rafting trips led by the Park Service. Members of Arizona’s congressional delegation said they were outraged and called for swift action. The report focused on allegations lodged against four male NPS employees who pressured female co-workers for sex, touched them inappropriately, made lewd comments and retaliated when they were rejected. It also found that disciplinary actions were inconsistent when it came

This Aug. 29, 2002, photo shows the Colorado River at the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. The National Park Service has outlined a series of actions in response to a federal report that found employees at the Grand Canyon preyed on their female colleagues and retaliated against them for refusing sexual advances. The agency’s Intermountain Region director, Sue Masica, said employees will be disciplined appropriately and she will push a message of zero tolerance. to sexual harassment and that the Grand Canyon’s chain of command failed to properly investigate or report allegations of misconduct – a violation of Interior Department policy. Masica said Uberuaga and Chalfant are responsible for complying with that policy. She set a May 1 deadline for disciplinary action against them, but the results likely won’t be revealed publicly because they are considered personnel matters, she said. A boatman who propositioned women for sex remains employed at Grand Canyon but is restricted from participating on river trips. Masica said he would be disciplined as well. Two other boatmen resigned in 2006 and 2013 after serving suspensions for sexual harassment. A supervisor who grabbed

the crotch of a contract employee retired in 2015, according to the report. Michelle Kearney, a former Grand Canyon river district ranger who signed on to the 2014 complaint, said she’s pleased that the Park Service is “holding people accountable for this behavior.” Other reforms outlined by Masica include thirdparty reviews of a string of past disciplinary actions to ensure consistency and of a 2013 report by the Equal Employment Opportunity office that looked into similar sexual harassment complaints. Masica vowed to develop comprehensive training programs, to apologize personally to those who filed the 2014 complaint and to separate the patrol functions of the river district from the support services

for rafting trips. Grand Canyon National Park manages 280 miles of the Colorado River, providing emergency and medical services as well as guiding researchers, politicians and students on a dozen river trips per year. Masica set deadlines within 2016 for the reforms, many of which she’ll lead in implementing. She said the reforms hopefully would set a new tone and direction for the Grand Canyon, one of the nation’s busiest national parks with more than 5 million visitors a year. Meanwhile, she said she’ll push a message of zero tolerance for sexual harassment and hostile work environments. “While dismayed at the work environment described in the report, I am committed to working to change the situation and

keep similar situations from happening again,” she wrote in response to the report. “The employees of Grand Canyon National Park deserve nothing less than that.” Kearney praised the reforms as robust and healthy. She suggested that the Park Service seek help from the U.S. Justice Department’s Office of Violence Against Women for resources in developing training programs. The Park Service also should have at least two systems to report misconduct, sexual harassment and violence that are centered on the victim and confidential, she said. “The system failed. We tried every avenue, and it failed,” she said. “It needs to be reviewed. Those people in those positions need to have special training.”

Scientists: Puffins might spend the winter off New Jersey BY PATRICK WHITTLE Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine – Researchers say they’ve found an answer to the long-standing question of where Maine’s Atlantic puffins spend the winter: far off New Jersey and New York. Puffins are the colorful seabirds of the auk family that are graceful in the water and awkward on land and air. The birds spend the spring breeding season and summer in coastal areas before heading out to open ocean waters in the autumn and winter. The National Audubon Society has described the exact winter locations of Maine’s puffins as “long a mystery” to scientists. But the organization said Tuesday that locators recovered from 19 puffins in recent years show the birds spent a chunk of the winter several states away from Maine. The area most frequented by puffins in the

In this Aug. 1, 2014, photo, Atlantic puffins congregate near their burrows on Eastern Egg Rock, a small island off the coast of Maine. Scientists say they have cracked the code about where Maine’s beloved, colorful Atlantic puffins go in the winter. The answer is somewhat surprising: they float out in offshore waters off the New Jersey coast. winter was about 200 miles southeast of Cape Cod, said Stephen Kress, the director of the Audubon Seabird Restoration Program. Kress said the data showed puffins

winter over underwater canyons and sea mountains in the Atlantic. Audubon said its findings represent the first time the winter grounds of Maine-breeding

Atlantic puffins have been mapped. It’s an important discovery because puffins are a threatened species and data about their movements are needed to inform conservation

efforts, Kress said. “Potential threats of commercial fishing, offshore wind and climate change have prompted the need for information on the nonbreeding movements and wintering locations of seabirds that nest in the Gulf of Maine,” he said. Atlantic puffins have a large total population estimated at more than 10 million, but the International Union for Conservation of Nature says that population is declining. The bird is a favorite with birdwatchers and tour groups and has been the subject of vigorous conservation efforts in localized areas, including Maine, where there are about 1,000 pairs of puffins. Puffins nearly disappeared from the Maine coast because of hunting and egg collecting in the 19th century but have rebounded in the last four decades thanks to restoration efforts, Kress said.

Dutch tourist says he’s lucky to survive Nepal tiger attack KATHMANDU, Nepal – A Dutch tourist who survived a tiger attack in the jungles of southwestern Nepal over the weekend by climbing a tree said Monday that he’s lucky to be alive and will now have a story to tell when he returns home. Gerard Van Laar said he was attacked by the tiger when he and his Nepalese guide were hiking in Bardia National Park on Saturday. “I was super lucky to be alive. I would have been dead if it had not been for Krishna (the guide),” Laar said by phone from Bardia, about 250 miles southwest of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu. “All of a sudden, I heard a roar and a growl, and the tiger was heading toward us at full speed,” said Laar, who has been travelling in Nepal since last month. He was able to escape by climbing a tree, but his guide was attacked and slightly injured as he ran away to draw the attention of the tiger. The tiger returned and circled the tree while Laar tried to stay as quiet as possible about 6 meters (20 feet) above the ground. About two hours later, the guide arrived back with help and they shouted and used sticks to drive away the tiger. The guide was hospitalized for a day, but Laar was not hurt.

Kenya: Lions wander out of park into residential area NAIROBI, Kenya – Kenyan wildlife authorities say six lions have broken out of the Nairobi National Park and were last seen roaming in a residential area. Kenya Wildlife Service spokesman Paul Udoto said Friday the lions were first spotted at 4 a.m. near a hospital in the suburb of Langata, and later near Kibera, Kenya’s largest slum. Udoto said wildlife rangers do not know how the lions got out of the park which is surrounded by an electric fence. He says a team of wildlife rangers tracking the lions aims to capture them and return them to the park. Nairobi National Park is home to many species of wildlife including endangered black rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife. Nairobi’s skyscrapers can be seen from the park. – From staff and wire reports

Oklahoma game warden says disaster was certain for hunters BY BRYAN HENDRICKS Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/Associated Press

KAW CITY, Okla. – The game warden that found the bodies of Craig Strickland and Chase Morland said the men were doomed the instant they entered Kaw Lake on Dec. 27 for their fatal duck hunt. Spencer Grace is the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation game warden serving Kay County. He was raised in that area and knows Kaw Lake, northwest of Tulsa near the Kansas border, well. “I’m the only guy that might have found them alive,” Grace told Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. “I knew where they would be given the wind direction. My hope was that they rode the boat to shore and used it for shelter.” Strickland and Morland were unprepared for the stormy, icy

conditions they encountered on the windswept prairie reservoir that morning. Strickland had hunted Kaw Lake, an Arkansas River impoundment, once before, with a guide out of a boat at a place called Bird Island, in the northwest arm of the lake, Grace said. That’s where he and Morland were headed when they disappeared. Grace said the pair entered the lake in a 10-foot aluminum fishing boat that did not have a motor. They had only one kayak paddle to propel and steer the boat. Crammed into this boat were two hunters weighing about 175 pounds each, a large Labrador retriever, four-dozen duck decoys, shotguns, ammo, other assorted gear and a 50-quart Yeti cooler that was half full of food and drinks, Grace said. “I don’t know what the weight rating is for that boat, but it couldn’t be rated for more than 400 pounds,”

Grace said. With that load, the boat had only 3 inches of freeboard, Grace said. The lake was much higher than normal, so it was also a lot wider than normal. They entered the lake on the east bank. A 50-mph wind blew from the northeast, which would have pushed them west. “It wasn’t 50 mile-an-hour gusts,” Grace said. “That was a sustained 50 mile-an-hour wind.” The icy, wind-driven rain created what Grace described as a “rain blizzard.” “The rain froze to whatever it touched,” Grace said. Somehow Strickland and Morland made it across the Arkansas River channel to a narrow strip of land, Grace said. They portaged about 15-20 yards and then paddled through a stretch of flooded timber. Once they cleared the trees, they

entered a wide expanse of open water where there was no windbreak. With the lake so high, the “island” that Strickland and Morland intended to hunt was about 8 feet under water, Grace said. That’s where the boat swamped or capsized. Morland shed his neoprene waders, perhaps believing he could swim better without them, Grace said. “He never made it out of the water,” Grace said. “I found his waders about 500 yards up the bank from where I found his body.” Grace found Strickland’s wader-clad body Jan. 4, on dry land. “He either swam to shore or he rode that Yeti cooler and used the paddle to get to shore,” Grace said. The waders bought Strickland enough time to reach shore, but Grace said it was not possible for a person in waterlogged clothing to

survive long in those conditions. “Even with a lighter or matches, there’s no way he could get a fire going in that weather,” Grace said. Cell phones belonging to the men were smashed and soaked, Grace said, so they would have been unable to summon help. The pair’s last known contact was Dec. 26, at 11:42 p.m., when Morland tweeted that he and Strickland were driving to Kaw Lake through a bad storm. Grace said he believes the accident occurred sometime around 2 a.m. “I assume they capsized in the dark, and were probably dead before the sun came up,” Grace said. A bad end was certain when Strickland and Morland launched the boat, Grace said. Attempting to turn around would have plunged the bow of a seriously overloaded boat into the teeth of high, rolling waves with only a kayak paddle.

Wild White House W

eet Bo and Sunny! They are the Obama family’s pet Portuguese water dogs. The family carefully researched which kind of dog to get because of Malia’s allergies.


During World War I, this president kept a herd of sheep on the White House O lawn to cut the grass!

U.S. presidents have had many different kinds of pets. Dogs, mice, parrots and even bears have made a home at the White House. This week’s Kid Scoop page celebrates Presidents Day by getting to know some of these pets.


James Buchanan had an elephant and an eagle!

First Presidents Pets George Washington had 36 hounds and horses. Circle every other letter to discover another special pet.

Calvin Coolidge, the 30th president, had a pet raccoon that he walked on a leash. And Herbert Hoover had a pet opossum. Unscramble the letters to see what explorers Lewis and Clark 17 gave to Thomas Jefferson.
