No Place I’d Rather Bee

Mortgage deduction debatable By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

In an effort to balance the state budget, Gov. Sam Brownback has proposed to eliminate the home mortgage deduction for Kansas taxpayers. The proposal has received its fair share of resistance, on a local level and state level. “I’m cautious about the proposal, Ed Bideau it doesn’t seem like a good idea to me,” State Representative Ed Bideau said. “I’m still studying it.” Duane Goossen, former state budget director, said Brownback predicts the elimination of the deduction will raise $163 million in revenue for the state. Goossen now serves as vice president for fiscal and health policies for the Kansas Health Institute. While Goossen agrees the predicted numbers are accurate for revenue gained, it is still to be determined whether the elimination will have a positive effect for Kansas homeowners.

Where the nation stands

Register/Allison Tinn

U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins discusses where the nation’s fiscal state stands Friday. As part of listening tour, Jenkins gave a brief overview of the nation’s spending and listened to community members voice concerns. A full write-up of the presentation will appear in Monday’s Register.

Jim Smart will be recognized Monday evening at the annual meeting of the Allen County Conservation District for developing better quality water on his farms northwest of Moran. The event will start at 6:30 in the community building in Iola’s Riverside Park. Events leading to the award started when Smart decided to operate his father’s farm, which he purchased in 2005 after working in research for the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Texas for 12 years. “The chance to move back (to Allen County) was exciting,” Smart said. It also came with some anxiety. Smart wasn’t coming into a robust enterprise. Having grown up on the farm and familiar with the economics of agriculture, Smart knew he didn’t have the money at hand to purchase a full complement of tillage and heavy equipment. Little family equipment was available. Instead, he relied on his instincts, honed during USDA assignments, and decided to go notill from the start. “It’s not as labor-intensive,” Smart said, and the equipment needed, a planter, drill and sprayer, are affordable. Fertilizer is applied in a banding process with no-till, a few inches to the side with nitrogen and in the same row with seeds for phosphorus and potassium. “It’s a lot more efficient than the old way — broadcasting,” Smart summed up, where up to 25

percent of an application is lost to the elements. An aside of putting down fertilizer at planting time, often in relatively heavy cover, is to do soil testing ahead of time, Smart said. “That way you know each year what the plants need in each field,” he said. SO WHAT does field work have to do with water quality? Everything, said Smart. “It starts in the field,” by keeping fertilizer in the ground and controlling rainfall runoff with terraces and waterways, including tilled terraces that deposit water directly to field’s side. That eliminates the need for waterways and opens more ground to farming. Three ponds Smart built are fenced and have water piped to outsider drinkers, which keeps cows away from the pond’s edge and, Smart observed, “keeps pee and poop our of the pond water.” It also keeps pond banks from beSee TILL | Page A3

Study:Yoga beneficial to heart “ It’s not a drug, it’s not a medical proceBy ALAN BAVLEY The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — The same kind of exercise that can bring peace to your mind may bring peace to your heart as well. Research at the University of Kansas Hospital is finding that regular time spent doing yoga breathing and stretching exercises may help keep potentially dangerous heart rhythm disorders in check. A KU Hospital study published this week in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology finds that as little as two one-hour yoga sessions per week can help significantly reduce the number of episodes of rapid, out-of-control heartbeats experienced by patients with atrial fibrillation. These patients also cut their blood pressure and lowered their levels of anxiety and depression. The results of this preliminary study are so promising, two similar yoga studies at KU Hospital are enrolling patients with other disorders that cause faulty heart rhythms. “Yoga is not a solution in itself, but it provides very profound effects,” said KU heart specialist Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy. “It’s not a drug, it’s not a (medical procedure). It’s something you can do in your living room for not very much money.” Lakkireddy wants to see

dure. It’s something you can do in your living room for not very much money. — Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy, heart specialist

if yoga training can work for other patients. He has started recruiting people with tachycardia, another rhythm disorder with accelerated heart rates, and syncope, a disorder that causes fainting when the heart stops beating temporarily. Yoga, with its meditation, breathing exercises and sometimes-difficult poses, has been practiced for more than 5,000 years. Because it’s known for its ability to bring inner peace, yoga often is recommended to heart and cancer patients as a way to relieve stress. Research suggests that yoga can lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate. But there has been little study aimed at using yoga as a medical treatment. Lakkireddy was born and raised in India. His grandfather was a yoga instructor. But Lakkireddy gave up yoga when he was a teenager and started practicing again only in the past few years. When a couple of his patients told him yoga helped dampen their atrial fibrillation, he was skeptical.

Simplifying this year’s legislation H Till This past week I spent some time in Topeka getting to know some of our new legislators and networking with some of our “old” ones. This year is a historical year in the state of Kansas in the aspect that two out of three legislators are new to the elected office or are just in their second term. I am going to share a simplified plan that was given to us by the Speaker of the House, Ray Merrick. This year’s session is slated to be 80 days instead of the usual 90. There will be no “blessed” bills this year. What comes out of committee is all that will be accepted and nothing will carry over to next year. There will be no omnibus bill allowed this year, only bills directly vetoed by the governor will be heard in veto session. Governor Brownback has set up a plan to have a two-year budget and that is

Shelia Lampe Chamber Musings

the premise that both the House and the Senate will be working with. There are several bills that have already been brought out of committee and voted on. Many are in the process of hitting the committees. It is very unusual to see action being taken this early in the session. There is a lot going on including action on eliminating income tax, extending the sales tax at 6.3 percent, property tax versus real, and mortgage tax deductions. There is a multitude of very important changes coming to our

state by way of the legislature. There are many ways for citizens to keep track of what is happing in Topeka and I encourage you to do so. You can listen to sessions online at AV online. Go to www.kslegislature. org. This site also allows you to keep track of bills in both the House and the Senate. Be informed, know what is going on with your government. Your legislators are; Senator Caryn Tyson, her email address is Caryn.Tyson@senate. and can be contacted at (785) 296-6838, Representative Ed Bideau,, (785) 296-7636, Representative Bob Grant, bob.grant@, 785. 296.7650. Contact them if you have any issues. That is the only way they know how you want them to vote. On a lighter note it is Cash Mob time. We will

be having a Cash Mob on Thursday. We will meet at the chamber office at 5:30 p.m. We will eat at a local restaurant afterwards to share our experience with each other. Please join us. It is Valentine’s Day in a couple of weeks and it will be a great way to pick up something for your loved ones. It is a fun and great way to help our chamber merchants and restaurant owners. On Thursday the Chamber will also be hosting Lynda Fort, executive director of the Kansas Bed and Breakfast Association. She will give a seminar on how to become a B&B owner and how to get certified. It will be held at the chamber office, anyone is welcome to attend at no cost. As you can see, there is a lot going on at the chamber. Please contact us if you have questions, or if we can be of help in any way.

coming muddy quagmires. “Cows also like cool, clean water they get from the drinkers,” Smart said. A wintertime benefit is not having to cut ice to open water for cows and not having to worry about a cow or calf breaking through ice and possibly dying. Smart is enrolled in the Conservation Stewardship Program, which assesses an entire operation and provides cash awards to a farmer for what he does to protect the environment. “The payments are nice,” Smart said. The program also encourages him to try some things a little out of the ordinary, such as planting a cover crop — annual rye or clover — over an entire field. “That reduces erosion and recycles nutrients,” Smith noted, “and also provides nice mulch for the crop

planted in the spring.” Droughts of the past two years have been significant nuisances for farmers, but Smart said his crops planted in ground-covered fields did substantially better than he had expected. Some of the ground cover also has root systems that penetrate the ground up to 24 inches. “That breaks up the soil as well as deep tilling,” he said. SMART’S WIFE, Lisa, succumbed eight years ago to cancer. He has four children: Annie Davis, a registered nurse at Iola’s Windsor Place; Ben, a senior in grain milling science at Kansas State University, with a job awaiting with Quaker Oats in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Nathan, a senior at Marmaton Valley High School, Moran, and Emily, a seventh-grader.

When you go to a big grocery store and look in the butcher section, do you often wonder where the animals that provided the meat came from, how they were raised, if the animals were treated with antibiotics, growth hormones and other unsavory stuff and how the actual butchering process took place. These are questions we should all ask of our meat products. The truth is, when we get our meat from most stores, we just don’t know much about it except for the price.

At Moran Locker we buy from local growers that we are very familiar with.

We know that these growers raise their animals with care to be the size and quality we want and there’s no doubt what sort of feed went into the animal. No old, poorly fed and poorly cared for animals will ever be retailed by Moran Locker or Bolling’s Meat Market. No locker can make good meat from poor animals. We’re convinced that our retail meats will be the best you’ve ever eaten. No doubt about it, locally raised and processed meat is the best.

Raising your own meat and ready for a local meat locker that offers custom meat processing? We invite you to call ahead and make an appointment. Or stop by for a

visit and see first hand the cleanliness and expertise of our state-inspected facility. Our longevity speaks for itself: we have 3rd and 4th generations at work in our family operations. Let us visit about how your animal will be cut up, how large the finished packages of meat will be and any instructions for smoking, trimming, sausage making and other special orders. Some owners may be concerned that once the animal is unloaded from the truck or trailer and leaves their sight, there’s no way to tell if the packaged meat that is returned to the owner came from the actual animal delivered to the locker. Our meat is tagged as soon as it is killed. It follows the meat through the entire process. There’s no way of getting mixed up. We process one animal at a time.

Bill would allow H Mortgage religious symbols on public land Continued from A1

A lot of people talk about ‘separation of church and state.’ That’s not in the Constitution. However, there is an establishment clause, which says the government shall make no law regarding religion.

— Rep. Don Schroeder, R-Hesston

Rep. Don Schroeder, RHesston, told the committee Thursday that he believed

religious displays like Buhler are constitutional. “A lot of people talk about ‘separation of church and state,’” Schroeder said. “That’s not in the Constitution. However, there is an establishment clause, which says the government shall make no law regarding religion. It doesn’t go the other way around; it doesn’t say that religion cannot be involved in government.” A representative of the Great Plains chapter of the Americans United for Separation of Church and State disagreed with Schroeder’s interpretation. “Why would you have in the Constitution the fact that the government can’t interfere with religion, but religion can interfere with the government?” said Vickie Sandell Stangl. “How does that protect the government? How does that make a stable society if it’s not a two-way street? That does not create a stable society. That would be my answer to them on that.” The bill also would allow religious displays in public schools, although they must be connected to a course of study that “does not favor or disfavor any religion or religious belief,” according to written testimony from Mark Hallman, spokesman for the Kansas Association of Public Schools. House Majority Leader Arlen Siegfried, R-Olathe, said he expects the chamber to vote on the bill next week. He said he believes the bill is constitutional. “I do not believe that having a cross on a sign forces an atheist to be a believer,” Siegfried says. “I just don’t believe that.”

look at it to see if it would result in an overall tax deduction,” Bideau said. “I’m skeptical.” He said the revenue must be increased by the state to overcome the deficit, which means the taxes must increase by principle somewhere. As for the region, both Bideau and Brocker agree that southeast Kansans can not afford to take any more hits to their tax expenses. Brocker said Al-

ladies come to me and say that they need to decide whether they are going to pay their property taxes, buy medicine or buy food. It is really hard.

ACCORDING to Goossen, the state’s projected revenue for next year is “hundreds of millions of dollars below expected expenses.” The gains in revenue will come from these three proposed actions: — A permanent extension of the 6.3 percent sales tax. Almost 1 percent of the sales tax was to expire July 1. The extension will raise $262 million for the budget. — The mortgage tax deduction elimination, which will raise a predicted $163 million in revenue. — Transferring $116 million from other departments to offset the deficit. These three proposals will increase state revenue by $541 million. Goos-

ering income tax rates, which took effect Jan. 1. The income tax was lowered from 6.45 percent to 4.9 percent for individuals earning more than $15,000 and from 3.5 percent to 3 percent for taxable income up to $15,000. Bideau said he is skeptical that the amount people are saving in income tax will offset the money lost from the elimination of the mortgage tax deduction and the higher sales tax rate. “I want to see the numbers, I’m initially opposed but I’m willing to take a

len County is “notorious in having low-wage jobs” and many people rely on their deductions to keep their homes. “I have literally had little old ladies come to me and say that they need to decide whether they are going to tax their property taxes, buy medicine or buy food,” he said. “It is really hard.” He said high property taxes have forced people to move into less than ideal housing situations. This is particularly evident for the elderly, who live on a fixed income.

The housing economy is already being affected by the economy, and Brocker questions why the state is using property and housing taxes as their “go to” to increase revenue. “Why would you want to hurt your third largest industry, we are already hurting,” Brocker said. “We have not learned to control spending habits, and there will come a day when people will move away.” He said it is up to the homeowners to oppose the proposed legislation, because they are the people who are going to see the effects. The issues are before the Senate Tax Committee, which must approve some plan to put before fellow legislators. “We have to come out with money somehow,” Bideau said. “But they (homeowners) are carrying more than their fair share, and that is a major concern of mine.” He said due to changes in the legislature, four counties (Wyandotte, Johnson, Sedgwick and Shawnee) can pass a vote on a legislation. Based on this, he said rural communities do not receive a fair voice with the state. For issues such as housing and property taxes, that affect poor rural areas the most, he said the legislation may not have their needs in mind. “Do they have sympathy for that,” he said. “I don’t know.”

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas House is considering a bill that would allow the display of religious symbols on public lands, if the symbols are considered part of a community’s history or heritage. The bill, which was discussed Thursday before the Federal and State Affairs Committee in the Kansas House, was introduced in response to a controversy last summer when the Mennonite community of Buhler was threatened with a lawsuit because its city symbol contained a cross, The Wichita Eagle reported. The Freedom From Religion Foundation claimed the city’s official design violated the U.S. Constitution by favoring Christianity over other religions. Despite pleas from some residents to fight the threat, Buhler leaders took down the city symbol and replaced it with two similar ones on private land.

sen said if these numbers are accurate, it will be enough to balance the budget for next year. “If those things don’t happen, the budget will not balance,” he said.

John Brocker, a local Realtor with Allen County Realty, said the governor’s proposal is hitting homeowners where it hurts the most. He said the elimination will discourage people from wanting to buy a home, which will affect the state housing economy on a larger level. The state housing economy, according to Brocker, represents 13 percent of the total state economic gains. “Housing has always been a mainstay of our economy,” Brocker said. “It will hurt our economy. People are being taxed out of existence, which hurts the American dream of wanting to own a house.”

Community foundation worthy of investments Kansas Health Foundation, it was important to note local buy-in to the Allen County Community Foundation. The late Donna Talkington, for instance, was one of the first foundation supporters, and left a gift to its corpus in her will. Other contributions have come from the Allen County Hospice, Home Health and Lifeline fund, the Allen County Healthcare Foundation, as well as other private donations. To date, the foundation has an endowment of $300,000, with another $650,000 pledged to the new hospital through the Uniting for Excellence campaign, which the foundation is managing. The income earned from the investments of these pledges is what goes to local entities. In Parsons, for example, its community foundation funds go to its historical society, the county health foundation, the police department’s chaplaincy program, support for the local farmers market, the Parsons Fire Department, area school districts, the county fair, county 4-H programs, county animal shelter, food bank, municipal band, and local Red Cross chapter, just to pull a few names from its long list of recipients. The Allen County Community Foundation is under the direction of Iolan Susan Michael, who works to raise funds and direct them to donors’ wishes. Foundation board members include Gary Parker, Moran farmer, Jeff Livingston, Iola Walmart manager, Angela Henry, SAFE BASE director, Beth Barlow of Humboldt’s B&W Trailer Hitches, Alan Weber, counselor to Allen County Commissioners, and Gary McIntosh, former Iola insurance agent and past county commissioner. AS A REGION, we all stand to gain from the Allen County Community Foundation. As community foundations across the country show, investors, including the county, will see a return on their investments — and more. — Susan Lynn

A look back in time 40 Years Ago Week of Jan. 27 - Feb. 2, 1973

Intercollegiate Press, Iola’s newest industry, will start production at its facilities here Monday. Bill Haberland, plant manager, said the company will start producing high school and university diplomas Monday, shifting that operation from a plant now in operation at Mission, Kan. By sometime this spring, Haberland said, the Mission plant will close and the yearbook cover production lines will be moved to Iola. He said that between 40 and 45 production workers will report to the plant Monday morning and within two weeks, when a second shift will be added, employment is expected to increase to 80. ***** WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — The draft that raised armies and drove hundreds to flee their country has been retired. The nation’s 18-year-olds still have to register for their draft. But now, for the first time since 1948, men between the ages of 18 and 35 don’t face induction. ***** The first of two apartment buildings on North Buckeye is fast taking shape. The twobuilding complex being built by Sell Constructors will house six

apartments and six garages. Six Iola women will live in the apartments. They are Mrs. Gertrude (Guy) Pees, Mrs. Ethyl (Jim) Reid, Mrs. Helen (Claud) Gilpin, Mr. Mary (Raymond) Carpenter, Mrs. Kathryn (Leigh) Bowlus and Mrs. Elizabeth (Earl) Sifers. ***** Residents of Gas City voted 111 to 0 last night in favor of building a $250,000 sewer system there. The referendum came in a public meeting called to discuss the proposed project. The sewer system would replace individual septic tanks now in use. Lagoons would be constructed and mains and gathering lines laid to about 130 homes in the city. The sewer system will complement a new water system the city will build. ***** Harold Stones, director of research of the Kansas Bankers Association, will be the speaker for the Annual Allen County Conservation meeting Friday night at which five farm families will receive awards recognizing their contributions to water and soil conservation. The awardees are: Mr. and Mrs. Wilburn Ludlum, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Siefker and Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Morrison of Moran; Mr. and Mrs. Earl Stanley of Gas and Mr. and Mrs. Harold Rice of Iola.

Diehards rejects common sense Even after the stunning tragedy in Newtown, Conn., it’s nearly impossible for Congress to hold a constructive conversation over gun control, thanks to efforts by diehard opponents led by the National Rifle Association and its supporters. Even a modest proposal like closing the gaping loophole on registration to limit the possibility that lethal firearms will fall into the wrong hands drew an intemperate display of contempt from Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the NRA, as the Senate kicked off hearings on gun control this week. His opposition to a proposed requirement for background checks on all firearms buyers, including at gun shows, was as unpersuasive as it was ineloquent: “Universal background checks, which sounds, whatever, ends up being a universal federal nightmare,” Mr. LaPierre told members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The proposal is a key component of gun control legislation because 40 percent of purchases are made at gun shows and other venues that exempt buyers from the sensible requirement for a criminal background check that other buyers undergo at stores. Back in the 1990s, Mr. LaPierre and the NRA were in favor of universal background checks, an idea that 80 percent of NRA members — and 90 percent of the American public — support today because it’s just common sense, but the NRA has hardened its opposition

You must act. Be bold, be courageous. Americans are counting on you. — Former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords

to any change since then. “Allowing 40 percent of those acquiring guns to bypass checks is like allowing 40 percent of passengers to board a plane without going through security,” Baltimore Police Chief James Johnson testified at the hearing. “Would we do this?” Of course not. We wouldn’t, and we don’t. So why should it be any different when it comes to firearms purchases? Why shouldn’t we do everything possible to keep guns away from criminals, terrorists and the mentally ill? “The best way to stop a bad guy from getting a gun in the first place is a good background check,” Chief Johnson told the senators. To support his position, Mr. LaPierre even used misleading statistics, saying that “out of more than 76,000 firearms purchases supposedly denied by the federal instant check system, only 62 were referred for prosecution.” We need better enforcement, he argued, not new laws. But under questioning by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., it turned out that the number the NRA chief used, 62, was only for Chicago. The actual statistics, accord-

The news earlier this week that Allen County Commissioners are reconsidering the second installment of a $100,000 pledge now due to the Allen County Community Foundation is hopefully no more than due diligence on their part. A new commission, after all, is not obligated to rubber-stamp decisions made by its predecessors. More than a year ago, commissioners pledged $100,000 to the newly emerging countywide foundation in an effort to attract a $500,000 grant from the Kansas Health Foundation. Based on the evident widespread support from public and private entities, the KHF awarded Allen County the $500,000 as part of its GROW initiative — Giving Resources to Our World. The purpose of GROW is to strengthen community foundations as a permanent source of local funding. The sizable grant works as a drawdown, matching individual grants with either 25 percent or 50 percent matches, depending on the giver’s intent. Gifts to the foundation solely for its purpose of perpetuity, result in the two-to-one match. In the county’s case, the Wichita-based foundation said it would give $25,000 to the local foundation as a match. It has given half of that commitment to date. County commissioners directed the earnings on the $100,000 pledge to provide programs that benefit the environment, such as a recycling program or clean-up projects. The county pledge comes from its landfill budget, which, according to County Counselor Alan Weber, “has the funds” to see the commitment fulfilled. More importantly, the county’s pledge helps secure the continued funding from the Kansas Health Foundation. Under the grant’s conditions, the county foundation must raise $50,000 in pledges each year for the next five years to keep in its good graces. An additional reward is a $17,500 operating grant to help keep the local foundation’s doors open. In securing the grant to the

ing to Sen. Whitehouse: “In 2012 more than 11,700 defendants were charged with federal gun crimes.” Mr. LaPierre’s testimony and his unjustifiable defense of a loophole in the law that has no merit exposed both the desperation of gun-control opponents and their unwillingness to engage in an honest and constructive discussion of an urgent issue on the national agenda. A CONGRESS that cannot respond to tragedies like Newtown and a long string of horrific shootings before that, stretching back to Columbine, is a Congress that is obviously helpless when it comes to confronting powerful special interests — even in the face of a national emergency. Instead of listening to extremists like Mr. LaPierre, they should listen to the poignant voices of victims like former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, who was critically wounded in 2011 by a man with a history of mental problems. She pleaded with the senators to come up with answers: “You must act,” she declared. “Be bold, be courageous. Americans are counting on you.” — The Miami Herald

Another great American tradition: foreign aid By CAROLYN WOO The Baltimore Sun

Like the rest of America, I will be tuning in Sunday to watch Baltimore’s own Ravens play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl XLVII. The Super Bowl has become a great American tradition. But there’s another tradition that demonstrates our nation’s finest values and doesn’t get nearly as much attention — and that’s the good we do around the world. You only need to turn on the television briefly or glance at a newspaper to see why our engagement in the world is so critical to our nation’s security, economy and standing. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t realize what a good value our foreign assistance efforts are. Most would be surprised to learn that foreign aid amounts to only about 1 percent of the federal budget. Let’s take a look at how cost effective our global development efforts are in light of something we all enjoy, the Super Bowl. Americans will eat about 200 million pounds of food on Sunday — more than a year’s worth of U.S. famine relief to Kenya. And for the cost of one of those entertaining, 30-second Super Bowl ads, we buy mosquito nets for 800,000 children at risk of malaria. And Monday after the game, you may be one of the 7 million

Americans who call in sick due to a little too much celebrating. However, let’s keep in mind there are 7 million Africans who are able to work and provide for their families that day because of U.S. efforts to eliminate and treat HIV/AIDS. These facts should certainly not keep us from laughing at the funniest ads or eating a crab cake for each touchdown the Ravens score, but they do put into perspective just how little it takes to make a big difference. The United States is inextricably linked with the rest of the world. From the Arab Spring to famine in Eastern Africa to natural disasters in Indonesia and Haiti, our national interests are at stake. The national security challenges we face today are far more complex and nuanced than they once were. While our military stands ready to respond to threats we face, many of these challenges defy military solutions. We need to utilize our tools of development and diplomacy alongside defense to keep America truly safe. The truth is, working to alleviate poverty, illiteracy and crippling illness is an essential building block for stable families and societies — and the more stable societies are, the less likely they are to succumb to extremism and

terrorism. By addressing these very human needs, we address the roots of many of today’s security challenges. Preventing conflict before it occurs keeps our brave men and women in uniform out of harm’s way and saves the lives of innocent people in these countries. From an economic perspective, 95 percent of consumers live outside of the United States. The fastest-growing markets are in the developing world, where half of our exports already go. Maryland exported nearly $11 billion in goods and services in 2011, supporting one in five jobs in the state. Giving American businesses greater access to these markets is the key to growing our economy and creating jobs. As our leaders in Washington work to resolve the fiscal questions before us, I encourage them to consider how effective and efficient our diplomatic and development programs are. For a tiny fraction of our budget, our international affairs programs strengthen our security and economy, and demonstrate America’s values. This Sunday, I will join millions of Americans in watching the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. My money’s on Joe Flacco and the Ravens for the win — and on America’s global leadership for a better, safer world.

Wrestlers give home fans quite a show By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

The Iola High wrestling team lost in two hardfought matches against Osawatomie and West Elk Thursday evening. “We don’t have enough wrestlers,” head coach Brad Carson said. “The open weight divisions hurt us quite a bit.” Based on the point margins, Carson said Iola most likely would’ve won a close match against West Elk. Raymond Branstetter started the competition against Moriah Gillespie for West Elk. The match went all three rounds, and three injury timeouts were taken for blood on the mats — a product of Branstetter’s bloody nose. He won by a point advantage of 14-11. Then came the open rounds, five total. West Elk

Iola High’s Stephen McDonald sets up West Elk’s Kaleb Lawrence for a first-round pin Thursday. Iola hosted its first and only wrestling matches of the year against West Elk and Osawatomie gained 30 points off the open 106-, 120-, 126-, 132- and 138-pound divisions. Then Iola had a chance to make their statement.

Cody Connor came out with a pin in the first round over Garrett Kambky at 145 pounds. Zeph Larney, returning

from a knee injury, dropped West Elk’s Jonathan Andrews to the mats during the second round of their 152-pound match. Paxton Noll briefly broke the trend with a pin in the first round over Iola’s Travis Rieske at 160 pounds. Nick Jacobs doubled up West Elk’s wins with a pin over Andrew Garber in the first period of their 170-pound match. Bryce Misenhelter had the Mustangs back on the scoreboard in his 182-pound match with an impressive pin on Yancy Wade after just 28 seconds on the mat. Stephen McDonald was equally impressive with a hard flip on Kaleb Lawrence in a first-round victory at 220 pounds, even after aggravating a shoulder injury five days earlier at a See WRESTLERS | Page B4

Cold start dooms Iola By RICHARD LUKEN

Iola High Fillies coach Becky Carlson put it succinctly —“Sometimes, we just get frazzled.” Early frazzles put Iola in an early deficit they could not overcome. Visiting Anderson County shut out the Fillies through the first quarter, and led 16-2 at one point. The Lady Bulldogs coasted

from there in a 40-19 win to keep the Fillies winless on the season. Despite the early deficit, Iola showed some spunk in the latter stages of the game. Jo Lohman put Iola on the board with a bucket in the first minute of the second quarter, then Emery Driskel and Emma Piazza went 3 of 4 from the line as Iola stayed even with Anderson County through the bulk of See FILLIES | Page B2

Mustangs drop overtime thriller By RICHARD LUKEN

Register/Richard Luken

Iola High’s Kyra Moore (11) is guarded by Anderson County defender Cheyanne Ratliff (12) Friday.

Everything about Friday night was entertaining for Iola High basketball fans — except for the final score. The Mustangs and visiting Anderson County traded baskets all night like baseball cards. On nine separate occasions, the teams were tied. There were 15 lead changes. When one or the other looked to get some breathing room, the other usually responded in quick fashion. That back-and-forth beauty

changed suddenly in overtime, when the Mustangs’ two most experience guards, Levi Ashmore and Trent Latta, were disqualified because of fouls. Anderson County took full advantage. Their absence led to game’s most pivotal sequence, which gave the Bulldogs the lead for good with 1:32 left in overtime,. The Bulldogs pulled down a pair of crucial offensive rebounds on missed free throws, with a steal mixed in, turning a 64-64 deadlock into a 69-64 lead with 1:25 on the clock.

Iola didn’t go down without a fight. Mason Coons pulled Iola to within three points on a pair of free throws with just over a minute left, but the Bulldogs hit four straight free throws from there to seal a 75-71 win. The loss is the fourth in a row for the Mustangs, who fell to 7-8 on the season, including three overtime defeats. “From a fan’s perspective, this was a great game to watch,” Mustang coach Bill Peeper said. “Both teams were going after each other, See MUSTANGS | Page B2

Humboldt downs Caney Valley What they’re talking CANEY — The Humboldt High Cubs had to “gut it out” Friday night against the Caney Valley Bullpups, according to head coach David Taylor. He said it may not have been a bad thing. Taylor said he saw things that needed to be worked on, albeit things that were not serious enough to prevent a win for the Cubs. They came out on top over the Bullpups, 64-41 in Caney. “We didn’t establish an inside game early,” Taylor said. “We pride ourselves on being ‘one shot and out,’ and we didn’t do that.” The first half had Humboldt on top 27-19. Momentum began to

turn in the Cubs’ favor in the beginning of the second half. A strong 17-point third quarter poised them to run the score up and out of the Bullpups’ reach. Humboldt outscored Caney Valley 2722 in the second half. Taylor said the Cubs continued their habit of playing “unselfish basketball” — a recurring theme for the Cubs’ perfect season thus far. Noah Thornbrugh led the scoring with 21 points, followed by Nathan Whitcomb with 17. Tanner McNutt had nine and Hunter Murrow dropped eight. Trey Johnson and McNutt led in assists with four and Murrow had four steals.

Thornbrugh pulled down eight boards and had one block. As a team, the Cubs went 10 for 20 on free throws (50 percent), and hit 25 of 33 from the field (76 percent). For the first time in several weeks, Taylor said the Cubs were out-rebounded by the Bullpups, 22-18 in the game. He said this was evident of their first-half defensive performance. “I was disappointed in our defense for the first half,” Taylor said. However, he believes a hard-fought victory is a good way to measure themselves on their season and he is liking what he sees. “You can’t be upset when

you win by that margin,” Taylor said. “But, we still strive for perfection, you can’t expect anything less.” The JV squad came up with a victory as well, 3930 over the Bullpups’ JV. Kason Siemens and Alex Murrow led Humboldt with 10 points each. The C team won a two-quarter contest, 27-4.

and you had players from both teams making big shots. It was an exciting, scrappy game.” But... “We just seem to be unable to finish,” Peeper said. “We struggle at times to do what needs to be done to get these wins. It’s not for lack of effort. It’s not a lack of trying.” The game was noteworthy for its back-and-forth volleys, almost from the opening tip. Iola led 24-21 when Anderson County went on the first extended run, with an 8-2 spurt to lead 29-26. But Iola bounced back with a 13-4 run spanning both sides of intermission. Coons’ trey with 5:13 left in the period put Iola up by six, its largest lead of the game. Walter promptly responded with a pair of 3-pointers in a 20-second span to tie score at 39-39 midway through the quarter. The lead changed hands four times over the next nine minutes of court time, with neither team leading by more than three until Walter hit a 3-pointer to lead 58-53 with 3:28 left in regulation. But Coons scored for Iola, and Ashmore quashed Anderson County’s attempt to run its stall offense with a steal and layup with 2:12 remaining, pulling Iola within 58-57. Iola regained possession on a tie-up, then promptly lost possession on a second

tie-up nine seconds later. But the Bulldogs’ Zach Hilliard missed on a jumper that Adam Kauth rebounded, leading to a foul on Latta. Latta hit the first of two free throws to tie the score. Both teams came up empty on their next possession. Drew Mechnig missed on the front end of a 1-and-1 with 1:05 left, then Coons and Kauth both misfired on Iola’s turn at the ball. A backcourt violation on the Bulldogs set up Iola for a final shot. Ashmore drove to the left elbow, but his field goal attempt was wide as the buzzer sounded. The teams traded leads six times early in the overtime. Kauth’s 3-point play with 2:24 left on the clock gave Iola 64-62 lead, but Walter responded with two free throws to tie the score, starting a 7-0 run. The spurt, not so coincidentally, came with Ashmore and Latta on the bench. “Losing those two was huge because Anderson County likes to press,” Peeper said. “They’re a good team.” Nine players in all scored in double figures, including a quintet for the Mustangs. Coons led the way with 16 points, followed by Kauth with 15, Ashmore with 12 and McIntosh and Latta with 10 apiece. “I’ve really been impressed with how Tyler McIntosh has played the last two games,” Peeper said.

Iola High boys head coach Bill Peeper barks out instructions late in regulation of the Mustangs’ 75-71 loss to Anderson County. “He’s really been aggressive.” Tyler Powelson and McIntosh both had four rebounds, followed by Coons with three. Latta and Ashmore had four and three steals, respectively. Ashmore also had four assists, followed by Coons and McIntosh with three apiece. Tastove scored 18 to pace Anderson County, followed by Walter with 16, Tanner Lickteig with 14 and Mechnig with 13. “We just couldn’t come up with the defensive stops when we needed to, or we were just short on a key rebound,” Peeper said. Iola’s junior varsity defeated Anderson County 58-48. Kaden Macha led the Mustang JV with 5 points, followed by Kohl Endicott with 12, Fryendz Wallace

and Shane Walden with seven, Travis Hermstein, Jesse Zimmerman and Adam Peterson with four each, Bryan Mueller and Matt Jacobs both with two and Alex Bauer with one. The Mustang C team fell 56-40.

Lohman scored twice in the last five minutes of the game, including a 3-point play with 1:29 left to give her a team-high 10 points. Driskel followed with five. “Jo was very aggressive tonight, and I thought Emery did a good job of rebounding,” Carlson said. “Those two really stepped up tonight. I like what Mi-

Moore had two points, and Piazza and Endicott both scored one. The Fillies lost the services of senior Emma Sigg, who left the contest after hitting her head on the floor midway through the first quarter. Jaime Mersman had 11 points for Anderson County.

about in the buildup to Super Bowl XLVII NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Around the Super Bowl and its host city with journalists from The Associated Press bringing the flavor and details of everything surrounding the game: BROTHERLY ADVICE: BOB BRYAN

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh and San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh are hardly the only high-profile siblings who’ve squared off in their arena of expertise. The AP is asking some others who can relate how to handle going against a family member in the Super Bowl. Tennis player Bob Bryan and twin brother Mike are the world’s best doubles team, having won a record 13th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open last weekend. Their 20-2 record going into this weekend’s Davis Cup matches against Brazil are the best of any U.S. doubles team in the 100plus year history of the event. When they were younger, however, the Bryans played singles and often found themselves facing each other in the finals of a tournament. “We would flip a coin for the match,” Bob Bryan said before he and Mike were to take the court in Jacksonville, Fla., for Da-

vis Cup play against Brazil. “(Our parents) didn’t want us to become rivals or be competitive against each other, which actually worked out great. We had all our trophies in the same trophy case and shared victories together. TALE OF 2 CITIES

In some ways, New Orleans has gotten better since Hurricane Katrina. The restaurant scene, for instance. But drive just a few miles outside the French Quarter and a different picture emerges. This is definitely a tale of two cities. Some parts of the Big Easy, such as the Ninth Ward and Treme, don’t look a whole lot different than they did the day after Katrina came ashore — more than seven years ago. On a ride-along with three advocates for the homeless group Unity of Greater New Orleans, it didn’t take long to realize just how much is left to do in this unique American city.

She had 10 points in the fourth quarter alone, and a total of 22 points in the contest in Uniontown’s 5147 victory. The Wildcats came out with a 10-8 lead out of the first quarter, and 24-20 at halftime. “We stepped up on offense, and hustled on defense.” Wildcat coach Kent Houk said. “The girls played well.” The Wildcats were up by five in the third before the Eagles’ Robinson

unleashed her offensive run on the home team. A 23-point onslaught from Uniontown put them on top for good, 51-47.

Hornets sting Lancers in key TRL matchup By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

COLONY — A packed gym did nothing but heighten the tension in a hardfought battle between the Crest High Lancers and the Chetopa High Hornets. The Lancers failed to pull within striking distance of their opponent, dropping the match 62-55. Chetopa is the only team to beat Crest other than the Humboldt Cubs. “I hope tonight is what we needed,” head coach Travis Hermreck said. “You hope to learn from games like this.” It was a tough night from the start. The Hornets came out on a 7-0 run, with hits underneath from Derrick Cassell and Brice Riddle. Riddle caused problems for the Lancers throughout the game in the paint, pouring in 24 points. Crest’s Jordan Morton hit a 3-pointer to end the run, and they were off to the races. The packed stands were loud and supportive for both sides. Friday evening was Crest High’s winter homecoming game. The Hornets took a 15-7 advantage into the second. The momentum was all

the court on offense, but shots fell cold. Brock Ellis had back-to-back jumpers, and Jesse Boone and

Kyle Hammond got on the board as well. But, Chetopa’s Breylan Berrios hit two from outside to get the

opposing team’s fans on their feet, celebrating a 3220 lead. “If you spot a team like Chetopa 12 points in the first half, 16 minutes is not going to be enough time get back into the game,” Hermreck said. He hit the nail on the head. Morton and Hammond made their best attempts

Fouls on nearly every defensive possession for the Lancers had Chetopa on the line multiple times. Morton hit two 3-pointers with just over two minutes remaining to give the team one last breath. But, the fouls continued to mount until the Hornets were out of their grasp. Hammond led the Lancers with 30 points, most of which came from a strong second-half performance. Boone contributed 12 points and Morton had nine. Brock Ellis, the only other player to score, had four. “I’m proud of the fact that we played hard, you can’t ask for any more effort,” Hermreck said. “They don’t like losing any more than I do.” Crest travels to Olpe on Tuesday.

Wildcat boys topple Uniontown

Continued from B1

MORAN — The Marmaton Valley High Wildcats shared the wealth in the scoring column in their 64-52 victory Friday night over the Uniontown Eagles. After a first quarter deficit, 13-19, the Wildcats bounced back with a 17-point second quarter to tie the game at the half,

tournament in Frontenac. West Elk left the heavyweight division open, but it wasn’t enough for a score bump. The Mustangs dropped the overall score, 42-36. “Zeph did a good job coming back from an injury, he was very aggressive,” Carson said. THE MUSTANGS didn’t fare as well against Osawatomie. JV wrestler Brice Aiello started with a pin over the Trojans’ Kitina Diediker. Then the open rounds began to mount up on Iola, giving the opponents another 30-point advantage. The Mustangs lost three hard matches in a row once the wrestling commenced. Andrew Cannon had the point advantage over Cody Connor, 12-2. The Trojans’ Andy Blanton had a second round pin over Larney, and

Devon Dozier had a first round pin on Rieske. Garber broke the trend with an impressive and hardfought match against Cole Wallace. He had the advantage after three rounds, 11-4. “I’m proud of Garber, he fought like heck,” Carson said. “I could tell he wanted it, he had something to prove.” Matt Lofing won over Misenhelter, 7-4, and Tanner Foulk won over Chase Roettgen, 10-4, at 195 pounds. The final score of the match had the Trojans on top 49-3. Carson said he was proud of the way his team fought. “We had a refusal to lose, and to get pinned,” Carson said. “We had some tough matches against Osawatomie, we just didn’t rise up to the challenge.” The Iola wrestlers continue their regular season action today with a tournament in Silver Lake.

30-30. The play opened up in the second half for the home team, with a solid 16-point third over the Eagles’ 12. The finished up in the fourth with 18 total over Uniontown’s 10. Cole Becker led the scoring for the Wildcats with 20 points. Chance Stevenson contributed 13 points, followed by Lucas Hamlin

with 12 and Nathan Smart with nine. As a team, Marmaton Valley hit 23 for 47 from the field (49 percent), and went 17 for 25 from the foul line (68 percent). They had eight turnovers and 13 steals. “We played well,” Wildcat head coach Tim Stinnett said. “That’s how basketball

Yates Center performance, compared to a 10-point West Elk quarter. The halftime score was 29-27 Patriots. West Elk outscored the Wildcats 15-11 in the third and 18-14 in the fourth to finish out the contest.

“The Little White Church in the Country”

Whenever we are talking to a friend or loved one, they are listening to what we say with our lips; however, when we are talking to God, He listens to our heart. It is sometimes quite easy to deceive someone else or yourself; however, when we are in prayer with God, he knows our true motives and desires. Sometimes when we are talking to God, we may even try to negotiate with Him saying that if God will do something for us, we will do something for Him. Since there isn’t much we can do for God, the omnipotent creator of the universe, except to love, honor, and trust Him, we should realize that only the foolish wouldtry to fool God.

House committee Chairman Richard Carlson, a conservative St. Marys Republican, said legislators may look at other numbers in assessing Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals but noted that lawmakers generally discount the accuracy of longterm projections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t predict anything five years out,â&#x20AC;? he said. But when lawmakers were negotiating tax cuts last year, such long-term predictions were an issue because the same researchers projected that the reductions ultimately approved would create collective budget shortfalls approaching $2.5 billion


Five years out, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting growth in the economy, which this (legislative report) canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nick Jordan, revenue secretary

acted last year took effect in January. Also, Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration and his legislative allies argue that cutting income taxes will spur economic growth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Five years out, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting growth in the economy, which this canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t account for,â&#x20AC;? Jordan said of the legislative researchersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; latest report. The projections circulated at the Statehouse as the Senate Assessment and Taxation Committee wrapped up hearings on a bill containing the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals and made plans to debate them next week. The House Taxation Committee begins its own hearings on Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan next week.

over six years. When talks broke down, conservatives engineered passage of the most aggressive package drafted, and Brownback signed it, arguing that it was better than no cuts at all. Meanwhile, both the administration and legislators are watching tax collections month-to-month. From the start of the current fiscal year in July through December, tax collections were about $37 million more than anticipated compared to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official fiscal forecast.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The chief justice of the Kansas Supreme Court is asking legislators to spend more money to improve the operations of the court system and allow more flexibility in assigning district judges. Chief Justice Lawton Nuss submitted his annual State of the Judiciary message Thursday in writing. The chief justice has traditionally delivered the address in a speech to the Legislature. But House Speaker Ray Merrick blocked the speech this year, saying lawmakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time could be better spent on other things. Nuss focused his remarks on efforts in recent years to modernize the court system, including instituting electronic case management. He said more work remained, but that a seamless system statewide linking all district court offices would be beneficial. Many of his recommendations were developed by a commission that was appointed to look at the entire court system and caseloads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If implemented, many of the blue-ribbon commission recommendations ... could indeed make the judicial branch more efficient and make the most of the hard-earned money of Kansas taxpayers,â&#x20AC;? Nuss wrote. The chief justice also said a law requiring one district court judge assigned to each of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 105 counties tied up resources that could be utilized in jurisdictions that see higher volumes of cases, such as urban areas of Wichita, Topeka and Kansas City. Failure to make the

change would necessitate the hiring of 22 more judges statewide to meet caseload demands and not require the courts to continually seek additional resources from legislators, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Removal (of the law) will allow the court to apply sound principles of business management â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to run the judicial branch of government more efficiently and effectively, and better meet the needs of Kansas citizens,â&#x20AC;? Nuss said.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas would face a $782 million budget shortfall in 2018 under Gov. Sam Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax plan, according to a government report released Thursday that was immediately questioned by conservative Republicans who support the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s push for income tax cuts. The report from the nonpartisan Legislative Research Department undercuts Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument that his proposals would stabilize the budget and build healthy cash reserves while allowing the state to follow up on aggressive income tax cuts enacted last year. The conservative GOP governor wants to phase in additional cuts in individual income tax rates over three years. He proposes to balance the budget and build cash reserves by eliminating two popular income tax deductions for homeowners and keeping the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales tax at its current 6.3 percent rate. The sales tax is scheduled to drop to 5.7 percent in July under budget-balancing legislation enacted three years ago. Critics of Brownbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals saw the researchersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; report as evidence that those plans and his long-term goal of phasing out individual income taxes are reckless. Even if the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan shored up the budget in the shortterm, a gap between anticipated revenues and existing spending commitments still would arise in future years, they argued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kansas is on its own fiscal cliff, and the governor is putting us there,â&#x20AC;? said Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka

Democrat who distributed the projections to reporters after researchers gave them to lawmakers. But Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said the researchers were probably too pessimistic in their assumptions for long-term revenue growth. The researchers assumed that in future years, that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall revenues would grow a little less than 4 percent a year, absent the income tax cuts. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax collections actually grew 8.2 percent during the fiscal year that ended in June and were on track to grow 6.2 percent during the current fiscal year before the tax cuts en-

Senate Vice President Jeff King, who also is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he applauded the courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to modernize its case management system, but said there were other proposals from the blue-ribbon panel on funding that could yield additional revenues to meet the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we get the case management system statewide we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to abolish the one judge per county requirement,â&#x20AC;? said King, an Independence Republican.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The state of Kansas received a record number of applications for concealed carry permits in January. Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office said Friday it 3,167 Kansans applied for the permits last month. That more than doubles the previous record of 1,651 in last March. The office says it received 1,593 applications in December and 1,344 in November. Gun sales and applications for gun permits have increased across the country in response to discussions about tightening gun regulations after a shooting at a Newtown, Conn., school left 20 elementary school students and six teachers dead.

The group gives out the backpacks on Friday afternoons to provide some food for students during the weekend. Food Bank officials say the group is currently giving out 7,082 food packets per week to 395 schools in Kansas. Director Brian Walker says both numbers are records for the charity, which began in 2004. Walker says the numbers are increasing because of a rise in demand, and as more schools become part of the service. The Wichita Eagle reports the food bank has delivered 120,741 backpacks in Kansas during the current school year through Thursday.

PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — An historic Pittsburg theater will hold its first public event in nearly 30 years in April. The 90-year-old Colonial Fox Theatre will be the site of a live antique auction on April 27. People who are working to restore the theater say they hope the auction is the first of a wide range of events at the theater. The Joplin Globe reports the theater was one of several buildings that anchored Pittsburg’s downtown entertainment and nightlife district in the past. But it closed to the public in 1985 and fell into disrepair. A group of volunteers began working to restore the theater in 2006, and by 2008 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Mentor group offers volunteer screening help TOPEKA,



— A group that connects Kansans who want to mentor youth with about 175 programs across the state says funding is available to help offset the cost of background checks. The Kansas Department of Education says the Kansas Mentors program was awarded $100,000 from Volunteer Kansas last year. Nearly $60,000 is available to distribute this year to Kansas mentoring programs conducting Kansas Bureau of Investigation background checks on mentors. Kansas State football coach Bill Snyder is the co-chairman of Kansas Mentors. He says Kansas’ mentoring programs are reporting significant declines in funding while demand for services increase. He says the grant will “ensure more young Kansans have access to a safe and caring adult role model.”

Congressman vice chair of ag spending panel

WASHINGTON (AP) — Kansas congressman Kevin Yoder is the new vice chairman of the U.S. House Appropriations subcommittee on agriculture. Yoder’s appointment was announced Thursday by Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, a fellow Republican from Kentucky. Yoder is in his second term representing the Kansas 3rd Congressional District, which covers most of the Kansas City metro area. He chaired the Kansas House Appropriations Committee before being elected to the U.S. House in 2010. His latest appointment gives Kansas a voice in congressional oversight of farm programs and policy. Last month, another Kansas congressman — Republican Tim Huelskamp — was removed from the House Agriculture Committee by GOP leaders angered by his positions on issues. Huelskamp represents the largely rural 1st District of western and central Kansas.

No such thing as ‘too-low’ blood pressure Dear Dr. Roach: I’ve seen a lot of information about high blood pressure and what numbers are good and bad, but I haven’t seen any on low blood pressure. Could you please discuss low blood pressure? What’s acceptable, and what’s dangerous? -- M.S. Answer: High blood pressure is called the silent killer because it usually has no symptoms but increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. Low blood pressure is very different. If there are

no symptoms, then there really isn’t such a thing as toolow blood pressure. I’ve had young patients with blood pressure of 80/40 with no problems. In fact, the lower the blood pressure, the less likely the risk of heart disease, in general. It’s the symptoms of low blood pressure that are frustrating when they occur. The major complaint is lightheadedness, especially on standing. Other people may faint from low blood pres-

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health sure. Treatment for symptomatic low blood pressure is plenty of salt and water, and learning not to sit up or stand up too quickly. Talk to your doctor if you are having lightheadedness, since not all lightheadedness is due to low blood pressure. Low blood pressure can exist as a result of medical conditions as well, and this indicates that the underlying condition is serious. When blood pressure is low due to severe heart failure or a heart valve blockage, or acutely due to a severe infection, that is very serious indeed. But a healthy person need not be concerned about the numbers if there are no symptoms. Dear Dr. Roach: My cardiologist had me take Crestor for my cholesterol, which was 200. I noticed that my upper legs seemed to be dragging. On my semi-annual visit to my doctor, I explained my symptoms, and he told me to stop taking the Crestor. He would not even give me a prescription for physical therapy. My legs still feel like they are dragging. Is there anything I can do? I have tried therapy, but there is no

improvement. -- J.B. Answer: Crestor, like all the cholesterol-lowering medications in the “statin” class, can affect the muscles, causing a muscle breakdown. It’s rare, but this is what your doctor was worried about when he asked you to stop. I have seen many more cases of muscle symptoms that were due to something other than those due to statins. Given that you are still having symptoms after stopping the medication, it’s time to look at what else might be causing the dragging sensation. There are circulatory, neurologic and hormonal causes of leg weakness, and your doctor needs to find out what is causing the symptoms before prescribing treatment. It’s time to go see your doctor again. Dear Dr. Roach: Could you please define “purine,” as in “purine-rich foods” for my gout-suffering husband to avoid? Much appreciated. -J.W. Answer: Purines are a component of DNA, contained in every cell in your body with a nucleus. They are metabolized in the body to uric acid, and in people with gout, high levels of uric acid can form painful crystals, especially in the joint of the great toe. A low-purine diet is recommended for people with gout. Sources of purine in the diet include red meat, beer, seafood (especially shellfish) and grain alcohol.

That nice watch might suggest it’s time for Juan Pablo to pick up the pace in the Cup Series.


This Bud’s for who?

What we know: Kevin Harvick will leave Richard Childress Racing after 2013 and drive for Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. What remains in play: Who gets the mighty Budweiser sponsorship? Harvick’s current sponsor can either follow him over to Tony Stewart’s camp or stay put at Childress Racing. Apparently, that decision has not been made. Of course, it will all play out behind closed doors, but keep a close eye on Harvick in the first part of the season. Count how many times he slips “Bud” or

Any chance Juan Pablo Montoya takes some Rolex 24 momentum into the Sprint Cup season?

GODSPEAK: All Montoya will take into the stock-car season will be a new Rolex timepiece. KEN’S CALL: Absolutely. Look what it did for AJ Allmendinger last year. Oh, wait, never mind.

Ricky and Danica: Will it last?


NASCAR’s most fortunate coupling since Holman and Moody.

“Budweiser” into conversation as he tries to woo the “King of Beers” to stay in his corner.

Why the wide eyes?


You know NASCAR is getting more of a mainstream look when reports about its competitors begin popping up on entertainment television shows and websites. Last week was a real TMZ experience for stock-car racing. The headliner was Danica Patrick, who recently filed for divorce, admitting she’s dating fellow Sprint Cup Series rookie contender Ricky Stenhouse Jr. There was even a photo of the unlikely couple holding hands at a recent Professional Bull Riders event in Winston-Salem, N.C. When racing icon A.J. Foyt, 78, was asked about race drivers dating, he had no comment other than “I’ve been married 59 years.” What upsets NASCAR purists about the PatrickStenhouse romance is simple. Patrick drives a Chevy and Stenhouse wheels a Ford. Chevy and Ford folks don’t generally see eye to eye. Lost in the romance frenzy was the birth of Taylor James Hamlin to Denny Hamlin and his girlfriend, Jordan Fish. Taylor crossed the finish line at 6 pounds, 5 ounces and measured 20 inches, or as fishermen say, “a keeper.”

Do you really have to ask? As if it wasn’t enough to have an ongoing and fail-safe ratings grabber like Danica Patrick on the scene, we now add Ricky Stenhouse, which has all of us saying, “Wow, didn’t see that one coming.” It’s not exactly shocking in a Julia-Roberts-falling-for-Lyle-Lovett sense, but still, we’re a little shocked. And thrilled, by the way.

No news, good news

Will there be any competitive fallout?

You do seem happy for those two kids. Don’t mistake our giddy nature for anything other than selfish pleasure. If you’re part of the racing media in any form, trust me, this is the best thing to happen since they started catering the press box. You can only write about spoilers and deck lids for so long. There’s nothing like human drama to draw attention to your product. The possibilities here are beyond belief — if there’s a Chuck E. Cheese for print and broadcast media, we just walked through the doors.

Through the years, Michael Waltrip has had his share of being part of bad news and creating headlines, such as punching Lake Speed or his emotional divorce from Dale Earnhardt Inc. So during the recent NASCAR media tour in Charlotte, N.C., Waltrip took delight by saying: “This is breaking news: We don’t have any news. There’s really nothing new or different from 2012. Man, are we happy about that.” Standing at 6-foot-5, Waltrip has been a lightning rod for controversy through the years, so he appreciates clear skies.

GODSPEAK: It will last longer than the first keg at a frat party, but not as long as a rhino’s gestation period. KEN’S CALL: I’m pulling for them, but if it turns bad, let’s hope they have the good sense to ignite the breakup on the front stretch.

Not for Danica, because she’s rather accustomed to dealing with the glare of attention. But Stenhouse will be thrown into the deep end, and try as they might at Roush Fenway Racing, they can’t put swimmies on his arms. Roush Fenway Racing President Steve Newmark claimed last week that they’re not worried about this having an effect on Stenhouse’s on-track performance, but if you never believe anything else, believe this: They wish this had never happened.

I actually had to shoot through the chicane and have a conversation with myself to calm down a little bit. Then I had another conversation with myself to pick it (speed) back up.

no different from what we do on a road course. The addition of that extra class (Daytona Prototypes) being a lot faster keeps you on your toes. It sure keeps the spotter busy.
