H Judiciary mittee Chairman Lance Kinzer, a conservative Olathe Republican, said supporters of changing the judicial selection system need time to survey them. “I think there’s a lot of education to do,” he said. Advocates of change not only need the approval of two-thirds majorities in both chambers but also a simple majority of voters in a statewide election. The current system of picking Supreme Court justices itself results from a constitutional amendment ratified by Kansans in 1958 with 60 percent of the vote. The state adopted the system by law for the Court of Appeals in setting it up in the 1970s. Supporters of the existing system call it merit selection, reflecting a belief that it largely removes politics from picking judges and justices and focuses on candidates’ qualifications. That view appears to have prevailed for decades, though there have been complaints that the system favored urban candidates over rural ones, slighted western Kansas or failed to produce enough minority finalists. Critics argue that the

system is biased toward centrist or left-of-center, establishment lawyers and judges, particularly if they have strong ties to the Kansas Bar Association. Critics also see the system as undemocratic because five of the nominating commission’s nine members are

gitimacy is not whether the bar selects a majority of the commission, it’s whether the bar selects ANY member of the commission. — Stephen Ware, Kansas law professor

attorneys elected by other attorneys, with the other four, all non-lawyers, appointed by the governor. The Kansas Bar Association offered a proposal to expand the nominating commission to 15 members, with 11 of them appointed by the governor and legislative leaders, but GOP conservatives aren’t much interested. Also, University of Kansas law professor Stephen Ware, perhaps the state’s leading academic critic of the current system, told lawmakers last week that reducing attorneys’ influence on the com-

H Guns Keeping a gun on top of nightstand is not a safe way to store a firearm. “Putting your gun in a drawer is the beginning steps to responsible care,” Beckham said. In addition to keeping guns away from children in the home, Kansas law does not permit concealed handguns to be within school zones or bars. “I don’t think I can emphasize it enough, if it has to do with schools don’t do it, just like with bars, don’t bring your gun into bars. Lock your guns up in a secure place,” Beckham said. MURPHY suggests studying and knowing your home in case of an intruder. It is always a good idea to know how many steps there are in the staircase and how wide they are. Knowing your home better than an intruder does will give the homeowner an upper hand. According to Murphy, it is becoming more common to see intruders and attackers with body armor. Don’t assume because the intruder was shot in the chest that they will go down. Never turn your back to the attacker or intruder.

Know what you are willing to shoot over. If someone is stealing something or is carjacking, let them have it. A life is more important than a possession, Murphy said.


don’t think I can emphasize enough, if it has to do with schools don’t do it, just like with bars, don’t bring your gun into bars. Lock your guns up in a secure place. — Master Deputy Tim Beckham

Kansas law does not require retreat. Force can be met with force, but Murphy and Beckham suggest avoiding a conflicting situation and only using firearm force as a last resort. “Try to get away safely and try to avoid (using your handgun),” Beckham said. “Distance is your friend,” Murphy said.

Opposition rejects president’s dialogue By HAMZA HENDAWI Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s main opposition coalition today rejected the Islamist president’s call for dialogue unless their conditions are met, a move that is likely to prolong the country’s latest political crisis as violence that has left more than 50 people dead continued for a fifth day. In the latest clashes, riot police fired tear gas at rock-throwing protesters in central Cairo today, and one protester died of gunshot wounds, health and security officials said. The violence came a day after President Mohammed Morsi vowed a tough response to the eruption of political violence, calling a state of emergency

mission.” The GOP right is hunting bigger game, too. It wants to ensure that conservative governors can appoint conservative judges and that conservative legislators have a chance to block nominees they see as too liberal. Moderates and liberals perceive an attempt by Brownback’s allies to eliminate a potential check on their power. Conservatives argue that they’re trying to ensure that the courts are accountable to the same citizenry that has pushed state government to the right.

Whatever the assessment, conservatives are confident of getting a twothirds majority in the Senate. The partisan balance is 32-8 in favor of the GOP, and only five Republicans are considered moderates. “The selection process for judges in Kansas is broken,” said Senate President Susan Wagle, a conservative Wichita Republican. “We’ve studied this for years, and I believe we have the votes to put this on the ballot.” Critics argue that the proposed constitutional change at least ought to go on the ballot in the November general election, when turnout will be at its highest. Sen. David Haley, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, complains that GOP leaders are “trying to fasttrack it.” “Before the light bulbs of independence go on over the heads of many legislators, I think there’s a rush,” Haley said. Quick approval by the Senate could create an impression that momentum for change is building. But the House would remain a big hurdle to overhauling the judicial selection process.

and curfew in the hardest hit areas — three cities along the Suez Canal and their surrounding provinces. The military has deployed in two of those cities, Port Said and Suez. The opposition has painted the explosion of rioting as a backlash against attempts by Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood to monopolize power in Egypt — and proof that Morsi has been incapable of achieving stability or achieving reforms. Leaders of the main opposition coalition, the National Salvation Front, dismissed Morsi’s invitation to a dialogue on resolving the crisis. At a press conference, the front’s head Mohamed ElBaradei said the call was “without form and content.”

rifle racks in patrol vehicles. Brown recently told the school board that he wants his officers to have semi-automatic rifles, too. “Looking at the weaponry that the bad guys are using, it just appeared to us that additional fire power would be helpful,” he said in a telephone interview on Friday. He made a presentation to the school board and followed up with a written proposal on Jan. 18 to the district’s superintendent. He has requested Colt AR-15s, stun guns and more security cameras. “A number of our police officers patrol day shift and second shift, and their weapons would be located in their vehicles,” Brown said of the semi-automatic rifles. “And they would have those available if they responded.” Security has received increased attention after the mass shootings in July at a theater in the Denver suburb of Aurora and in

December at Sandy Hook Elementary, where a gunman killed 20 children, six educators and himself. Before going to the school, the Connecticut gunman killed his mother. “My primary concern is that when you look at situations like Aurora and Sandy Hook, if your officers are simply carrying a semi-automatic handgun, they are really outgunned when they are trying to deal with an individual with some type of assault rifle,” Brown said. “And so our goal was to at least equalize our ability to confront that individual.” District spokesman Ronald Harbaugh said in an email that he anticipated the board would discuss the proposal “in the near future.” It’s unclear whether other Kansas districts are considering similar steps. Kathy Toelkes, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Education, said state education officials don’t monitor whether districts allow police or hired security to carry high-powered weapons on school campuses.

Stan Musial aka Mr. Cardinal My new mother-in-law knew me pretty well, as well she might, I had been dating her daughter for 4 years before our September 7, 1947 marriage. So sometime around that fateful day of long ago, she presented us with a cartoon. A young couple were sitting on a blanket under a tree, picnic basket and portable radio at their side.

Bill Roy

Overcome with joy, he burst forth with a delighted squeal, “Just think, honey, just you and me and the Cardinals and Cubs!” And so it was: Jane shared our 63year marriage with the St. Louis Cardinals, and more specifically the greatest Cardinal of them all, Stan Musial, who died this past week. Jane and Stan met; well, sort of. We were at Stan and Biggie’s Restaurant in St. Louis. Stan was at a table nearby. After considerable urging, our wives went to get Stan’s autograph for us. Presenting ticket stubs, they told Stan they wanted his autograph for their boys. Stan, far from a newcomer at this business, gestured to our table and said, “I suppose those are your boys over there.” They laughed, chatted a few minutes, and came back beaming with two autographed tickets. I wonder where those tickets are now. I didn’t have to brief Jane on who Stan was. We both recalled that Sunday afternoon in May, 1954 when we were working around our not air-conditioned house (Air Force housing on a cement slab in Likins-Foster off South Topeka Boulevard) in what I recall was an ungodly hot day.

Every once in a while, I would call out, “Janie, guess who just hit a home run?” She had learned well her refrain, “Stan Musial.” She correctly answered “Stan Musial” five times that afternoon. He had achieved a record five homers in one day, never before accomplished, and done only once since. Somehow, I have always been aware how much the chapters of Musial’s life paralleled the chapters of my life. For example, when he retired in 1963, I felt it also signified the passage of my youth. He had been playing for the Cardinals 22 years, more than half my lifetime, and I was pretty darn mature by then. There was something empty about the Cardinals, or even major league baseball, without Stan the Man. In a sense, Stan and I came up together in 1941. I had spent most of that summer in the hospital

earnings from my private medical practice in Topeka were about the same, year after year. For example, he got his first $100,000 salary i959. My income was not far short of that. Since 1963, American values, expressed in income, have changed dramatically. The average major league salary today is $3,440,000. And, Alex Rodriquez, a broken-down third baseman, alone, receives $28 million a year. Meanwhile, back at the operating table, cardiac surgeons reportedly average $546,000 a year today, but family doctors work hard for an average income of $156,000. The only physicians making baseball-like incomes today are administrators, topping out with Unitedhealth Group’s ridiculous 2006 $1.76 billion for Dr. W. W. McGuire. But athletes’ incomes, which

The next year they did.     Another thing I noted after the years I entered private practice until Stan retired (1963) was Stan’s Cardinal contracts and my

Northern Allen County reverberated with the sounds of battle yesterday afternoon as 1,000 men took to the fields in operation wolf hunt. The sortie was a great success. Twenty of the critters were killed and an undetermined number of hawks, crows, jackrabbits and small game was bagged. It was a fine afternoon to spend outdoors — so everyone had a good time. ***** A farmer living a few miles from Iola had a fire recently. He called the Iola fire department. They told him, sorry, you’re not in Iola Township and don’t have

a contract with us. We can’t make the run. Mayor Charles Wilson explained today that the city has no choice. It has to set up rules and abide by them. The rules are: 1. Within city limits fire department service is unlimited and free. 2. Outside the city limits it is by contract only. Iola Township has a contract covering all farms within the township. Certain individual farmers have contracts. The city will sign contracts only with individuals living within three miles of the city limits. 3. There are only two exceptions. One is when life is endangered, the other is upon request by a neighboring town when the business district of that town is threatened.

***** The majority of Iola’s retail stores have adopted new evening closing hours as of Monday. They will close at 5 p.m. on the first five days of the week and at 8:30 p.m. on Saturdays. ***** The Hill Rendering Service, Topeka, announced this morning that it will close its plants at Iola, Frankfort and Horton Feb. 1 due to economic conditions in the rendering business. It is understood here that the low price for hides is one factor which led to the decision.

Super Bowl Brownies

With the Super Bowl coming up this weekend I thought it would be a good idea to come up with snack ideas. The Super Bowl brownies couldn’t be more easy. Make a batch of your favorite brownies and cut them into football shapes. Then, with a piping bag or an icing can from the grocery store make a football design. A few drops of food coloring can turn the neutral white icing into the team of choice’s colors.

A healthy mixed nut snack

A mix of nuts and dried fruits is a healthier alternative to a bowl of dry roasted peanuts. Get a mix of your favorite raw nuts, such as almonds, pecans and pistachios, and lightly coat with canola oil. Season with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and sea salt, spread on an oiled baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes. Put the mixture in a bowl and stir in cranberries. Not only will you have something different at your Super Bowl party, but your guests will thank you for giving them a healthy alternative. Photo courtesy of Pinterest and Women’s Health Magazine

Science demo with a twist

YORK, Pa. (AP) — Mourners at a Pennsylvania fast-food fan’s funeral wanted him to have it his way, so they arranged for his hearse — and the rest of the procession — to make one last drive-thru visit before reaching the cemetery. David Kime Jr. “lived by his own rules,” daughter Linda Phiel said. He considered the lettuce on a burger his version of healthy eating, she said. To give him a whopper of a send-off Saturday, the funeral procession stopped at a Burger King where each mourner got a sandwich for the road. Kime got one last burger too, the York Daily Record

reported. It was placed atop his flag-draped coffin at the cemetery. Phiel said the display wasn’t a joke, rather a happy way of honoring her father and the things that brought him joy. “He lived a wonderful life and on his own terms,” she said. Kime, 88, a World War II veteran, died Jan. 20. Restaurant manager Margaret Hess said she knew his face and his order. She and her crew made 40 burgers for the funeral procession. “It’s nice to know he was a loyal customer up until the end — the very end,” she said.

Mustangs pull home top finishes at Fredonia Injury thwarts McDonald’s shot at tournament title By RICHARD LUKEN

Register/Richard Lukebn

Iola High’s Chase Roettgen wrestles in a match earlier this season. On Saturday, Roettgen took home third place in the 195-pound division at the Fredonia Invitational Tournament.

FREDONIA — Saturday featured some good, bad and everything in between for Iola High’s wrestling team. First the good: The Mustangs brought home three top-three finishes at the 31st annual Fredonia Invitational Tournament. Senior Chase Roettgen and junior Bryce Misenhelter claimed third place in the 195- and 182-pound divisions, respectively. Senior Stephen McDonald did them one better, claiming second place at 220 pounds in his first action in a month. Unfortunately, McDonald also re-aggravated a shoulder injury that had kept him sidelined since Jan. 3 and will almost certainly keep him out of action for the immediate future. The injury occurred early in McDonald’s championship match against Burlington High’s Gus Farthing. “The other kid tried a collar jerk move, and Stephen was able to get away from it,” Iola wrestling coach Brad Carson said. But McDonald immediately began favoring the shoulder, and time was called. “He was in some pain, so we stopped the match,” Carson said.

“It really put a damper on what had been a pretty good day.” Prior to the championship match, McDonald pinned Tyrel Saunders of Wichita West High, then downed Kyle Loy of Frontenac 5-0 to secure his berth in the championship. “The first match was a pretty tough match,” Carson said. The pair were tied at 1-1 when Saunders attempted a move and found himself slightly out of position. That was the opening McDonald needed to get points for the takedown and very quickly the pin. In his semifinal victory, McDonald recorded a pair of takedowns and an escape, while preventing Loy from as much as an escape point. Then the injury occurred. “It’s tough because it would have been nice to have him for Thursday,” Carson said. Iola will host its only wrestling competition of the season Thursday with a double-dual against West Elk and Osawatomie. “This competition will be the last chance our seniors have to wrestle in front of their home fans.” Carson said he likely will keep McDonald sidelined until the Class 4A Regional competition See MUSTANGS | Page B4

Red Devils fall in OT By RICHARD LUKEN

As far as heart-breakers go — and there have been some doozies this season — Saturday’s overtime defeat at the hands of Cowley College may have been the toughest of them all for Allen Community College. Cowley’s 70-64 overtime win came despite a remarkable performance by Allen’s Andrew Rountree, including a banked in 3-pointer with four-tenths of a second left in regulation to force overtime. “This is a hard one to accept

because we know the caliber of team Cowley is,” Red Devil coach Andy Shaw said. “They’re so disciplined, and they don’t make mistakes to beat themselves.” A win would have been a big confidence booster for the Red Devils, who remain winless in Jayhawk Conference Eastern Division play. “Now we just have to regroup,” Shaw said. Allen didn’t make many mistakes against Cowley, and certainly hit a number of clutch shots See RED DEVILS | Page B2

Allen Community College’s Andrew Rountree (1) challenges Cowley College defender Dominique McKoy in the second half Saturday. Rountree scored 19 points after halftime, including a buzzerbeating, game-tying 3-pointer, but Cowley pulled away in overtime for the 70-64 win.

Iola Middle School’s basketball B teams picked up a pair of convincing wins Saturday. The seventh-grade B team rolled past Humboldt 25-4, while the Pony eighth-graders secured a 41-18 victory. Dalton Ryherd led the way for the seventh-grade squad with 14 points. Nick Vaughn followed with four points, while Bryce Andres, Alex Morrison and Chris White scored two apiece. Miah Scheimann and Scott Todd each had two points for the Cubs. In the eighth-grade game, Mason Ingle and Zane Beasley scored 15 and 11 points, respectively to lead Iola. Gage Cleaver scored eight, Darius Greenawalt five and Rhett Allen two. Humboldt’s Layton Gillespie scored five points, while Jason Mangold had four and Scheimann had three. Edward O’NealWilks, Zach Korte and Caleb Hart scored two points apiece.

Cowley downs ACC women By RICHARD LUKEN

Cowley College’s women proved worthy Saturday of the top of the Jayhawk Conference Eastern Division. The Tigers ended Allen Community College’s modest three-game winning streak with a stifling defensive effort, particularly in the second half. Cowley’s 20-2 run spanning the first and second halves put the Tigers in full control of a 72-41 win. The loss drops the Red Devils to 11-9 overall and 4-4 in conference play. Cowley improved to 7-1 in conference and 17-3 overall. “Cowley’s good,” Allen head coach Mark James said. “They’re number one (in the Eastern Division) for a good reason. But I don’t think we executed that well. We turned the ball over too much, and to be honest, many of those turnovers were unforced.” The Red Devils were up to the challenge for the first 15 minutes of the contest. DaNara Day, Ebonie Jones and Kendra Taiclet all connected from 3-point range in the early going, and Miracle Davis’ basket with 5 minutes left in the half capped a 5-0 run to pull Allen to within 22-20. Cowley’s T’Ondria Nolen drained a pair of free throws to begin a 9-0 run to end the half to lead 31-20. Allen’s offense continued to struggle after the break. After committing only

Yvonna Dunkley scored at the 15:15 mark to push the Tigers on top 42-22.

Allen could get no closer. Day scored 12 points with seven rebounds and four assists to lead the Red Devils, while Brittney Redmond followed with nine points.

H Red Devils Continued from B1

from start to finish, but the Tigers’ 1-3-1 zone put the Red Devils off kilter enough to make up an early 14-point deficit, and eventually take control in overtime. “We hadn’t seen Cowley run a 1-3-1 before, and it hurt us,” Shaw said. “It took away some of the good looks that we’d been getting.” Cowley also displayed a bit of poise in overtime. The Tigers never flinched after Rountree’s gametying trey. James Milliken started the extra period with a 3-pointer, followed shortly thereafter with a traditional 3-point play by Dominique McCoy. Cowley ended the game by hitting 8 of 12 free throws to seal the win. Meanwhile, Cowley’s zone defense kept the Red Devil offense stuck in neutral. The Red Devils connected on only one field goal in the extra frame, a basket by Tray Fountain with 19 seconds left. By then, the Tigers’ lead had grown to 68-60. Allen’s Bryce Schippers narrowly missed a 3-pointer from the left wing with about 40 seconds left in the

overtime that would have cut the deficit to three, but the shot bounced off the side rim. THE RED Devils opened the game like gang-busters. Four of the five starters connected from the field in the game’s first eight minutes. Schippers came off the bench to drain a 3-pointer with 10 minutes left in the first half to give the Red Devils a 17-3 lead. Alex Keiswetter’s bucket with 7½ minutes left pushed Allen’s lead to 17, 24-7. McCoy spearheaded Cowley’s response, scoring eight points during a 14-6 run that closed Allen’s lead to 30-21 at halftime. Coincidentally, Rountree was the only Red Devil starter to go scoreless in the first half. He made up for it after intermission, scoring 10 of ACC’s first 12 points after halftime. The Tigers closed the gap to 46-45 when Rountree’s putback re-established a three-point cushion. Seth Walden followed shortly thereafter with a 3-pointer to give ACC a 51-45 lead. Rountree’s clock-beating jumper with 4:11 remaining put Allen on top 53-48. The Tigers responded

with eight straight points. Milliken scored with 1:24 on the clock to give Cowley its first lead of the game 54-53. His two free throws with 19 seconds remaining pushed Cowley’s lead to 5653, setting up Rountree’s buzzer-beater from the top of the key. Rountree scored all of his team-high 19 points after halftime, to go with nine rebounds, four assists and a block. Cameron Blue followed with eight points, nine boards, three assists and four blocks. Ben Uno scored seven points before fouling out. Keiswetter and Walden scored six each. McCoy scored 22 to pace Cowley. Milliken added 16.

The girls also utilized a strong second quarter to pull ahead of Marais des Cygnes Valley in a 45-30 win. The victories gave both teams seventh place in their respective sides of the tournament, held in Emporia. The schools resume

regular season action Tuesday at home against Crest. THE SCC boys trailed Madison 15-14 late in the second quarter when Aaron True connected from 3-point range to trigger a 9-0 run. The Titans led 23-15 at the break and turned on the jets in the third quarter, outscoring Madison 16-9 in the frame. The lead grew to as much as 17 in the second half. True led Southern Coffey County (4-10 overall and 2-8 in Lyon County League) with 13 points, fol-

lowed by Josiah Witteman and Walker Harrod with 12 apiece. IN GIRLS action, Southern Coffey County were tied with Marais des Cygnes Valley 7-7 before outscoring the Trojans 17-11 in the second period. The lead swelled to 31-22 by the end of the third quarter. Kalyn Deal led SCC with 11 points, followed by Sarah Webb and Miranda Alumbaugh with eight apiece. Martyna Hegwald and Brittne Brite both scored six and Breanna Isch had four. Isch also had 10 re-

bounds, while Hegwald had seven rebounds and five steals. Webb had seven rebounds and three assists. “We finished the week on a positive note,” Lady Titan coach Jeff True said. “We had a good balance of scoring from the girls. We did a better job of moving the ball on offense, and our defensive intensity was good. “Kalyn came off the bench and gave us some good minutes at the guard spot,” True continue. Abby Phillps scored 15 to pace the Trojans. The SCC squads host Crest on Tuesday.

WPW not only cause of rapid heartbeat Dear Dr. Roach: Can you tell me how the WPW syndrome is detected? My mother had the WPW syndrome, and I think I have it. Sometimes my heart beats fast and wobbly. My whole chest sometimes goes up and down. I went to a cardiologist. My stress test was good. My echocardiogram was good. Does my heart have to be in the throes of beating off track for the doctor to record and detect WPW syndrome? — T.Y. Answer: The “WPW” is Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, a common (1 in 100) heart condition in which the electrical impulse coming from the heart’s pacemaker in the atria takes an alternate pathway to the ventricles of the heart. Normally, the electrical stimulus travels down a pathway so that it arrives in the ventricle precisely

when needed. However, in WPW syndrome, the impulse comes too quickly down the alternate path. Occasionally, this leads to a big problem, because the electrical impulse can travel back up the normal path and down the fast path again, over and over, causing an extremely rapid heart rate. WPW usually is found on a routine EKG. There are cases where it can’t be seen, in which case a stress test is often diagnostic. But there are more causes for fast heartbeats. Your cardiologist has done both the echo and the stress test. If you keep having symptoms, you could wear a device that records your heartbeats continuously for 24-48 hours, called a Holter monitor, or an event monitor for even longer times. Speak to your cardiologist if you keep having symptoms.

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health WPW can be treated with medication, but it now is more frequently being treated with radiocatheter ablation, where the extra pathway is destroyed with radio waves. Not everyone with WPW needs treatment. Dear Dr. Roach: I was wondering what you think about the latest blow against calcium. German and Swiss researchers followed 24,000 adults for 11 years. They found that regular users of calcium supplements had an 86 percent increased risk of

heart attack! I’ve been taking vitamin and calcium supplements for years. Should I be concerned? — V.A. Answer: There have been three papers looking at calcium and heart disease risk published in the past year. Two of them showed no benefit or evidence of harm, and one showed evidence of benefit. I carefully read the German study you cite, and the 86 percent apparent risk almost disappears when you look at the data regarding the cumulative effects of supplementation. New data always should be reviewed with caution, especially if it overturns accepted scientific wisdom. Once in a while, something really does turn the scientific world on its head, but in this case I don’t think that calcium supplementation is likely to cause a large increase in heart risk.

H Mustangs Garber takes second at meet Continued from B1

FORT SCOTT — Iola High freshman Andrew Garber brought home a second-place finish Saturday at a junior varsity wrestling tournament. Garber, wrestling at 170 pounds, swept past his first three opponents before falling in the championship match to Regan Wright of Mill Valley with a 7-0 decision — a wrestler he had defeated earlier in the competition. After a first-round forfeit, Garber opened the competition by pinning David McHie of Spring Hill in 5 minutes, 26 seconds. He then defeated Wright, 9-4 in the third round of pool play.

Garber secured a berth in the championship match by pinning Austin Storck of Spring Hill with 3 seconds remaining in the third and final period. Sophomore Jordan Long took seventh at 160 pounds. He started with a pin over Blake Driskell of Paola at 1:36 before losing to Jesse Hodge of Fort Scott by a pin at 2:17. Long was sent to the consolation bracket, where he lost by pin to Grant Thompson of Blue Valley Southwest by pin in 3:29, then by decision to Alex Gepford of Frontenac, 2-1. He secured seventh place by forfeit over Christian Farris of Blue Valley Southwest.

Crest girls fall to Uniontown COLONY — The second quarter told the tale for Crest High’s girls Friday. The Lady Lancers, tied with visiting Uniontown High after one quarter, saw the Lady Eagles explode for a 20-6 scoring margin in the second period. Uniontown put it in cruise control from there in a 58-39 win.

Crest didn’t go away quietly, closing to within seven, 42-35, after three quarters. Uniontown closed the game with a 16-4 run. Kurston Gilliland scored 16 points to lead Crest, followed by Emmalee Seabolt with eight and Madison Kellar with five.

Feb. 15-16 in Pittsburg. “I debated resting him one more week, and then this,” Carson said. “Wrestling just has so many explosive movements, you can’t predict when this might happen. We don’t think his shoulder popped out or anything, but he was in some pain. “It’s tough because Stephen could be a possible state qualifier and maybe even a state champion,” Carson said.

ROETTGEN’S thirdplace finish, meanwhile, left Carson exuberant. “Chase is such a great kid, and he works so hard,” Carson said. “I think he may have turned a corner with his performance.” Carson was most encouraged with how Roettgen ended the competition. He lost a semifinal match against Jacob Radford of Putnam City, 10-2, sending him into the consolation bracket, where he pinned Wyatt Goodlin of Wichita Independent. In the third-place match, Roettgen took home a 9-2 win over Isaiah YeubanksMurdock of Wichita South. Carson noted YeubanksMurdock opened the match aggressively: perhaps too much so. Roettgen earned a penalty point when his opponent punched his leg, then twice more for similar penalties later in the match. “Chase really kept control of the match,” Carson said. “He got points for a couple of takedowns, then again late in the match. I think that was the best match I’ve seen Chase wrestle.” MISENHELTER

Iola High’s Stephen McDonald, right, wrestles against Pittsburg High’s Gershom Avalos in a match earlier this season. McDonald took home second place Tuesday at the Fredonia Invitational Tournament, but aggravated a shoulder injury in the process. continued his impressive romp through the 2012-13 season He rolled over Brabender Cabrera of Andover, then pinned Yancy Wade of West Elk in 30 seconds. He dropped his semifinal match to Rakim Dean of Wichita South by pin, but responded by pinning Cabrera in the consolation semifinal. Misenhelter was awarded third place by forfeit when his opponent, Jacob Hendricks of Maize South, had to pull out because he had already wrestled the maximum five matches on the day. “The thing about Bryce is that he always wrestles hard from start to finish, regardless of what the score is,” Carson said. “When you do that, good things happen.” CODY CONNER, junior, took home fifth place at 145 pounds. He opened with a major decision over Isaiah Kemps of Maize South, 155, then pinned Coby Carter

of Valley Center in 30 seconds. Conner’s troubles started in the semifinals when he was pinned by ReShean Tipton of Wichita South. He then lost his consolation match to Ethan Hess of Frontenac 4-2. “Cody had some bad luck in that loss,” Carson said. Conner was adjusting his head gear when the referee blew his whistle to start the third and final round. Hess took full advantage with a two-point takedown, enough for the decisive points. Conner was awarded fifth place by forfeit over Carter. “Cody struggled a little bit,” Carson said. Brice Aiello took seventh at 152 pounds. He pinned Clay Hokr of LeonBlusetem, before being pinned by Jared Brown of Andover in his quarterfinal match. He responded by defeating Kyle Dean of Erie by pin, but lost to Sharif Jones of Wichita East, 5-1.

Aiello won seventh by forfeit over Logan Kressly of Rose Hill. “Brice continues to get better and better,” Carson said. “As a freshman, he still makes some mistakes, but he’s improving every day.” Travis Rieske, meanwhile, dropped his two matches. He went up against top-seeded Jesse Oliver of Wichita West by pin. He also was pinned by John Engelmeyer of Rose Hill in consolation action. “Travis had a couple of tough opponents to deal with,” Carson said. THURSDAY’S double dual against West Elk and Osawatomie will offer an opportunity for local wrestling fans to see the Mustangs in action. Carson said special recognition would be given to the seniors as well. Thursday’s matches begin at 5:30 p.m. The wrestlers will travel to the Silver Lake Invitational next Saturday.
