Vendors prepare for fourth annual Farmers Market By ALLISON TINN
Vendors are dusting off their recipes and getting back in the kitchen and gardens in preparation for the April 11 opening of the Allen County Farmers Market. The market is in its fourth year. This year begins with 12 vendors signed up, said Allen County Farm Bureau coordinator Debbie Bearden. While that may not be as many as previous years, Bearden said “the makeup of the market has matured.” Each year the market grows a little whether in size or activities. This year Farm Bureau will be holding a reading round-up the second Thursday of each
month. The round-up will give kids the opportunity to stay entertained while their parents or grandparents shop the market. Bearden said they are looking for volunteers to read to the kids. As in past years, weekly cooking demonstrations and entertainment will be provided. Each Friday, market members will bring leftover produce to low-income housing areas so “those without transportation can shop the market,” Bearden said. The Friday program will not begin until May and June when produce is nearing its peak. See MARKET | Page A6

Shields still at large Senator to address Rotarians

Brian Shields remains at large. He is wanted in the late January murder of a Chanute woman, Cristy Thomas-Wiles, 36. Shields was thought to have been holed up in an apartment here on East Street March 8, but wasn’t found when local officers and the Highway Patrol’s special response team raided the building. Several “sightings” of Shields, 26, described as a white male, 5-foot7 and 150 pounds, in the Iola area since then have turned out to be mistaken identity. Meanwhile, Michelle Voor-
Negotiations make little progress By JOHN MILBURN Associated Press
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Negotiators from the Kansas House and Senate said Monday that they had made little progress in working out differences in plans for further cuts in personal income taxes. Key legislators said the main sticking point is whether to let a 2010 increase in the state sales tax expire in July as scheduled. Republican Gov. Sam Brownback wants to follow
up on massive individual income tax cuts enacted last year by reducing rates further over the next four years. But the state must stabilize its budget, and Brownback is proposing to keep the sales tax at 6.3 percent, rather than letting it drop to 5.7 percent in July, as provided by law. The Senate embraced Brownback’s proposals to keep the sales tax at its current rate and guarantee future cuts in individual income tax rates. The House approved a bill allowing the
Anti-abortion measure advances TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Senate gave firstround approval Monday to new restrictions for abortion providers after refusing to add extra language aimed at bolstering existing protections for access to birth control. Senators also rejected a proposal to add exceptions to all of the state’s current limits on abortions for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. They also retained a provision directing doctors to provide information to women about a disputed potential link between abortion and breast cancer before terminating their pregnancies. Abortion opponents decried proposed rewrites of the bill as “gotcha” amendments and “political hijinks.” The bill would block tax breaks for abortion providers and pro-
sales tax to drop, coupled with less aggressive income tax cuts. Senate Assessment and Taxation Committee Chairman Les Donovan said he met for 45 minutes with Brownback on Monday to discuss tax policy. Donovan said the sticking point remained the House’s insistence that the sales tax rate drop this summer. “They’re stuck on the penny. They want it to go away See TAXES | Page A6

LaHarpe man accused of rape Timothy Vest Jr., 22, is being held in Allen County Jail on $200,000 bond for an incident Saturday in which he allegedly raped a 29-year-old LaHarpe woman and kidnapped her four-year-old son. According to Allen County officers, Vest was arrested at 1 a.m. Sunday for a series of events earlier in the night. He is accused of rape, aggravated criminal sodomy, lewd and lascivious acts, criminal restraint, battery (four counts), kidnapping and child endangerment. Officers said Vest appeared
to have been intoxicated when they arrived on the scene. He had a first appearance in Timothy Vest court Monday morning, when his bond was set. Information about Vest’s arrest and the events in which he allegedly was involved will be given to Allen County Attorney Wade Bowie, who will decide what charges will be filed.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Navy is moving a sea-based radar platform closer to North Korea to track possible missile launches, a Pentagon official said Monday, in the latest step meant to deter the North and reassure South Korea and Japan that the U.S. is committed to their defense. The sea-based X-band radar, a self-propelled system resembling an oil rig, is heading toward the Korean peninsula from Pearl Harbor, the official said. The John S. McCain, a guided missile destroyer capable of shooting down ballistic missiles, also is being sent to the region, said another Defense Department official. On Sunday, the Pentagon sent two F-22 Raptor stealth fighters to Osan Air Base in South Korea from Japan. The moves come amid heightening tensions on the Korean peninsula as the North has issued nearly daily threats over recently imposed U.N. sanctions and joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises that the Stalinist regime calls “an unpardonable and heinous provocation and an open challenge.” The Pentagon’s decision to send only two fighters appeared to reflect a delicate balance, seeking to demonstrate American resolve without provoking a confrontation with North Korea. Last week, the
U.S. military flew B-2 Spirit stealth aircraft to carry out dummy bombing drills over South Korea. Pentagon press secretary George Little said the F-22s were on “static display” at Osan as part of the monthlong military exercises and “to provide South Korean senior leaders with an orientation to the aircraft, which are an advanced capability that is available for the defense of South Korea.” The flights Sunday were the fourth time that F-22s, one of the Air Force’s most advanced

by Kim’s declaration Sunday at a meeting of the ruling Workers’ Party central committee that the North’s controversial nuclear weapons program was a “treasure” that would not be abandoned or traded for “billions of dollars.” The North has been widely condemned for its nuclear ambitions. After successfully launching a three-stage rocket in December and testing a nuclear warhead Feb. 12, it was slapped with the additional sanctions by the U.N. Security Council.
In defiance of the sanctions and the military exercises, the North first announced that it was annulling the cease-fire between the Koreas, then said it was prepared to attack “all U.S. military bases in the Asia Pacific region,” and finally declared that a “state of war” existed between North and South Korea. South Korean President Park Geun-hye, who has pledged to provide humanitarian aid to North Korea if Kim’s regime abandons its nuclear ambitions, called Monday for her nation’s military to respond powerfully if the North makes any threatening moves. Despite the North’s threats, Seoul residents resumed their routines Monday with little sign of anxiety. “It’s a regular event.

House numbers could save lives By TERRY BROYLES
HUMBOLDT — The ability to find a residence or business address in an emergency situation could deter a potentially hazardous situation. The Humboldt Police Department is urging citizens within the city limits, who do not currently have house numbers, to have numbers affixed to the front of their house or business. “We at the department know general locations and can usually find the address,” a notice from the Police Department read. But, for the safety of the public and a more rapid response, numbers

would be beneficial. All residences and businesses within the corporate city limits should have numbers fastened to the front of the house or building; the numbers need to be of a size that can easily be seen from the street (usually two to three inches); and the numbers should be displayed in a conspicuous location for easy visibility. The police officers noticed the absence of house numbers while patrolling the community. “We would like to ask for your assistance in this so we can be a more efficient department,” the notice said.

~ Journalism that makes a difference
Harriet Tubman, other women, deserve spotlight Harriet Tubman, the African-American who sheltered slaves along the Underground Railroad, has earned her day in the sun. Almost 150 years after her heroic service, two small national parks have been designated to honor Tubman. Congress stalled on the action, only to be rescued by President Obama who used his powers under the 1906 Antiquities Act to set aside important natural, cultural and historical sites for permanent protection. Tubman was born into slavery in 1820 in Maryland. She escaped at age 27. A monument in Tubman’s honor will be placed in a 480-acre park donated by The Conservation Fund. Significant to the area is Stewart’s Canal, a manmade waterway Tubman’s father, Ben Ross, helped build as a slave. It’s also the home site of Jacob Jackson, a free black man who used coded letters to help Tubman communicate with family and others. A park in Auburn, N.Y. will honor Tubman’s later work of helping the aged and infirmed as well as fighting for women’s suffrage. Tubman endured slavery for almost 30 years before she escaped in 1849. Over the next 10 years “Moses,” — “Let my people go!” — as she was known to supporters, risked her life over and again to give shelter to fleeing slaves along the Eastern shore. In the course of her work as a “conductor” along the railway, Tubman and others would help runaways sneak across fields, through towns and over waterways during the cover of night. It’s thought about 100,000 fugitive slaves made their way north through such daring maneuvers. Tubman also worked as
a nurse and a spy for the Union during the Civil War. She died 100 years ago, on March 10, 1913. Tubman’s not alone in falling under the national radar for heroes. Women as a whole are under-represented. A mere 8 percent of outdoor public statues in the United States are of female figures. Of the 100 sculptures — two per state — in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall, only 10 are of women, seven of whom are white. A statue of Rosa Parks was unveiled on Feb. 27, introducing the first full-body statue of an African American woman. Since 2000, states have been allowed to replace their sculptures, making it easier for more statues of women to be installed. So far, only four have been added. K a n s a s ’ representatives in the hall are President Dwight D. Eisenhower and John James Ingalls. No quarrel here with either designation. Eisenhower needs no introduction, and in fact his statue replaced that of George Washington Glick in 2003. Ingalls, 1833-1900, worked to make Kansas a free state and is credited with our state motto, Ad Astra per Aspera, Latin for “Through hardships to the stars.” Still, Kansas has many notable women including former Sen. Nancy Landon Kassebaum and former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who someday should have their images cast in stone upon state grounds. How about alongside Amelia Earhart in the state capitol? Or wherever. What’s important is that today’s women serve in as many roles as their male counterparts and deserve equal representation. — Susan Lynn

Keep tax credit for low-income families My life’s service has been oriented toward walking with people in poverty. This walk often leads me to see the basic lack of fairness that encompasses the lives of the poor.
That’s why the Catholic Church and the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth care about taxes. Tax policy affects those who are in poverty. Our new Pope Francis spoke clearly in the first days of his papacy, saying, “We must take care of the poor.” Back in 1998, when Kansas was the land of milk and honey and the economy was booming across the nation, the Legislature spent an entire session hammering out a tax-cut bill with a price tag of $252 million. Gov. Bill Graves touted the bill’s inherent fairness. It slashed, he explained, taxes across a broad spectrum: business, income, sales and inheritance, and it slashed taxes for low-income working parents. This portion of the bill was the refundable earned income tax credit, or EITC. So we come to 2013. The Legislature is again working on tax and budget issues. This year, Gov. Sam Brownback did not propose
any change to the current EITC policy. This fits with his “road map” that embraces the reduction of childhood poverty. Current studies of the federal EITC have shown that the EITC lifts more children out of poverty than any other federal policy. In fact, after the controversial 2012 tax-reduction package was passed, both the governor and Kansas Secretary of Revenue Nick Jordan noted the continuance of the state’s EITC for low-income workers. Now, late in the session, Sen. Jeff King (R-Independence) has introduced a bill that would cut the EITC from 17 to 9 percent.
me, “It is only $300!” Most important, the Kansas refund of $300 promotes tax fairness. These working parents pay food tax (for which there is no rebate starting in 2013), sales tax and property tax (most often through rent). Gas tax is the same if you are driving a Ford Contour or a Cadillac. I continue to be baffled that legislators can speak of the benefit to middle- and highincome families of having an extra $300 in their pockets as a result of a tax policy, while seemingly failing to comprehend what the same $300 means to low-income working parents.
Now, late in the session, Sen. Jeff King (R-Independence) has introduced a bill that would cut the EITC from 17 to 9 percent.
Those receiving the EITC are usually younger working families who are not homeowners. My experience says that these working parents are most often working full time in jobs that pay $20,000 to $35,000 a year. Typically these are not jobs that pay mileage or have expense accounts. The refundable credit allows these parents to make car repairs or get new tires, pay off credit cards and medical bills, and buy their children new shoes. Yet, I actually had people in the Statehouse last year tell
THIS CUT in the EITC will not automatically happen. I encourage you to raise your voice with legislators who most likely will make this decision in the coming days. Let them know that you care about parents who are working in low-wage jobs. Let legislators know that you care about the children in these families. Let them know that you care about tax fairness.

Shotgun legislation: a terrible way to govern Maybe Gov. Sam Brownback is shooting from the hip, or maybe the Kansas Legislature has an itchy trigger finger. Whatever the cause, one thing is certain: 2013 is the year of the Shotgun Legislature. Record-setting campaign spending in 2012 led to the election of many conservative legislators who won favor from some of the state’s largest lobbyist groups, thus purging moderate Republicans from the Legislature. As soon as this new Brownback-compliant Legislature convened in January, members began shot-gunning a wide variety of bills in both the House and Senate. No issue has been out of reach of the Legislature’s birdshot — corporate farming, judicial appointments, taxes, workers rights, restrictions on lobbying (not from business, just from people), election laws and immigration, to name a few. This approach betrays a dire sense of urgency from the governor and his legislative followers — almost as if these changes must happen now, before people have a chance to
figure out the truth, and perhaps have a change of heart. There is good reason for that impatience. Given time to research and ponder the legislation, most Kansans would find much of it unpalatable. Some might realize a vast difference between what we’ve been told and what we could end up living with if some of these bills become law. For instance, a bill against using public money to pay for lobbyists sounds reasonable on its surface. But deeper exploration reveals the bill doesn’t solve the fundamental problem that lobbyists dominate lawmaking; it simply removes lobbyists that most closely represent the people and in effect silences the voices of the common person while giving well-heeled organizations a louder voice. Likewise, a corporate farming law seems like a fine idea to some when it’s gussied up in the language of economic development, jobs and investment. But its sourness comes out once people realize the legislation also robs counties and their residents of their right to control their own backyards.
A tax cut, who doesn’t like the idea of a nice big tax cut? But already Kansans are biting down on the pit in that bill and realizing the pain might well come in higher taxes elsewhere or reduced services in their communities. As for unions, Kansans have never much liked them anyway — especially those unions that represent teachers and government workers who earn their livings from taxpayer dollars. Another shotgun blast brought a flurry of bills designed to erode union power and membership. Yet, in the process, lawmakers have sought to undo civil service protections, which would allow public employees to be hired or fired based on their political affiliation and the changing winds of each election season. A shotgun Legislature, indeed. But shotguns aren’t used for their precision or accuracy; they’re used to spread out a wide pattern in the hope that at least one piece of shot will strike its target. It’s a great tool for bird hunting but a terrible approach to lawmaking. — The Hutchinson News

Gardening holds many advantages
Karlie Stephens, member of the Prairie Rose 4-H club uses toothpicks and candy orange slices, to demonstrate the importance of using straight and sharp needles and the annual Livestock Quality Assurance training.
Many people are deciding to turn to gardening as a way to â€œcut backâ€? on family expenses or to simply become more self-sufficient. You may be contemplating growing some of your own food as well. If you are new to gardening, you might not even know how to get started. Donâ€™t worry, gardening is not necessarily rocket science. However, you will need to know some basics in order to be successful. One place to get started is by visiting one of the Southwind Extension District offices in Erie, Iola or Fort Scott. If you have not paid a visit there before, all three offices are located in the courthouse in the respective town. The Extension Office
Krista Harding Extension Agent for Agriculture
has a lot of information on many different topics. But in particular, there is plentiful information on growing vegetables. In a publication called â€œVegetable Garden Planting Guide,â€? you can find planting dates, harvest dates, row spacing, days to germinate and average yields of almost all vegetables. This is a great publication to get you started into gardening. The office also has publications on growing early cold tolerant
crops such as peas, broccoli, cauliflower and lettuce. Planting time for these vegetables is upon us. There are also publications on onions, potatoes, peppers, tomatoes, sweet corn, asparagus, rhubarb and even herbs. Or if you want to grow fruits, information is available for that too. Container gardens might be an answer for persons with limited garden space. The office has a publication on container gardening that details soil mixes, container types, fertilizer, watering and lists suitable flowers and vegetables for a container environment. Gardening is not trouble free because insects and diseases are
early problems. But the Extension Office has information to help you out. And if you run into a problem that you just
Container gardens might be an answer for persons with limited garden space. canâ€™t figure out, give me a call. Or bring the plant sample or insect into the office and I will diagnose the problem for you. Beginning today, I will be at the Iola office each Tuesday. There are many benefits to it besides just raising produce. Gardening is great exercise and stress relief.

Sometimes itâ€™s the simplest things that are the most confounding. Last year, right before Easter, I blogged about how to make a perfect hard-boiled egg. Basic? Yes. Popular? Very. This seemingly simple task received tens of thousands of page views. And, it seemed, almost as many complaints: â€œBut how do you peel them?â€? Mea culpa. While my method ensures that hard-boiled eggs are never overdone (at last: the cure for the dreaded copper-green ring!), it also can make them harder to shell, because perfectly cooked eggs turn out to be stickier than ones that have been overcooked. So this year I determined that I would find the absolutely perfect way to cook hard-boiled eggs you could actually peel. I spent a couple of days researching and

cooking several dozen eggs and found that the answer is surprisingly simple. While overcooking hard-boiled eggs does have its obvious drawbacks â€” rubbery dry whites and pale crumbly yolks â€” it actually does make them easier to peel. Thatâ€™s because one of the determining factors in peel-ability is the pH of the egg â€” the higher (less acid), the easier. And longer cooking raises the pH (so does aging â€” and older eggs also have a larger air pocket, which helps even more). But you donâ€™t have to choose between easyto-peel eggs that arenâ€™t worth eating and delicious eggs that are as pocked and cratered as

the surface of the moon. Do a little research and youâ€™ll find all sorts of solutions, some more fanciful than others: Cool the eggs in an ice water bath. Cook them in salted water. Add baking soda to the water (baking soda is alkaline, so theoretically it could raise the pH). I added salt to one batch of eggs and baking soda to another. I transferred another batch to an ice water bath whole, and another I cracked slightly after cooking but before going into the bath. And just to make sure I wasnâ€™t imagining things, I also cooked one batch the original way, trying to crack them straight out of the warm water.

and we think we need it,” said Donovan, a Wichita Republican. Donovan’s House counterpart Rep. Richard Carlson said it will be difficult for him to move from a position to allow the sales tax rate to expire when that was the sentiment of 82 House members earlier this session. “There are still many differences, but we’ll work through them,” said Carlson, a St. Marys Republican. Negotiators are scheduled to resume their talks today. Donovan said it was looking doubtful that a compro-
mise could be reached by Wednesday and voted on Thursday so legislators can have the issue resolved before starting a monthlong hiatus. “I don’t know I can say there’s been any movement, maybe a little ground on some little issues,” he said. Resolution of the tax debate will help other legislators working on a compromise on the state’s $14 billion budget for 2014. Donovan and Carlson said they hoped that disappointing revenue receipts for March aren’t a trend that could further complicate tax and budget negotiations.
On Friday, the Kansas Department of Revenue said March tax collections were off by nearly $57 million, nearly wiping out a surplus the state had enjoyed in collections since July 1. Revenue officials blamed the decline in collections on delays in federal tax deadlines forced by congressional action on fiscal issues. Kansas collected almost $364 million in March when it had expected to take in more than $420 million. Congress settled some tax issues in January, forcing the federal government to delay filing deadlines and resulting in later tax collections in Kansas.
and Welfare Committee Chairwoman Mary Pilcher-Cook, a Shawnee Republican and strong abortion opponent, read existing protections in
parents before performing abortions on minors. “This language would completely undo 10 to 20 years of abortion legislation,” Pilcher-Cook said.
H Taxes The House approved the measure last month, but senators made technical changes that House members would have to review before the legislation could go to Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, a strong abortion opponent. Senators discussed the bill for more than two hours, and the debate grew heated. The proposals to add rape and incest exceptions to Kansas’ abortion restrictions and strip out the language on breast cancer were soundly rejected in the House. “These amendments are little gotcha amendments,” Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce, a Hutchinson Republican, said, his voice rising. “I’m getting a little irritated at it.” The legislation is less restrictive than a new law recently enacted by North Dakota legislators to ban abortions as early as the sixth week of pregnancy or a new Arkansas law prohibiting most abortions after the 12th week. But some abortion opponents still believe the Kansas measure would help continue a trend in which the state has seen abortions decline 37 percent over the past decade. Abortion-rights advocates view the measure as a major threat to access to abortion services and several groups issued a joint statement saying it “shows a complete disregard for women’s health.” Senators who support abortion rights said they weren’t trying to show up abortion opponents by offering the amendments on birth control, rape and incest, and breast cancer. Sen. David Haley, a Kansas City Democrat, said he wanted to ensure that policies with broad support among Kansans aren’t eroded. “It doesn’t matter to any of you, as long as that in utero is protected, above all else,” Haley told his colleagues. “You’re entitled to that, but stand up and be counted.” Haley offered an amendment to add language to the measure saying that a woman couldn’t face prosecution or civil lawsuits for using birth control. The Senate voted 27-8 against Haley’s amendment after Public Health

Kansas law for access to birth control. “This is political hijinks,” Pilcher-Cook said. “We should be focused on the bill instead of trying to make political points.” Haley also offered an amendment to create the rape and incest exception to the state’s abortion restrictions. Among other things, it would have applied to a law banning most abortions starting in the 22nd week of pregnancy, restrictions on private health insurance coverage of elective abortions, requirements for what doctors must tell patients before performing abortions and a mandate that doctors obtain written consent from

Sen. Pat Pettey, a Kansas City Democrat, offered the amendment to strip the bill of its language dealing with breast cancer. Like other abortion-rights supporters, she argues the provision would force doctors to provide misleading information to patients, something abortion opponents strongly dispute. The vote was 28-10 against Pettey’s proposal. Scientists convened by the National Cancer Institute in 2003 concluded that abortion did not raise the risk of breast cancer. Abortion opponents still see a potential link because of evidence that carrying a fetus to term can lessen the risk of breast cancer.

Allen County Farmers Market-goers line up for produce in May 2012.
H Market Continued from A1 FOR ANYONE questioning the effectiveness of the market from the standpoint of a vendor, Stacy Mueller, owner and operator of Stacy Cakes in Humboldt, says it’s worth the time and effort. Mueller, a vendor at the market’s first year, said she didn’t see a large profit working the market, but that she “made enough to come back the next week.” Working the farmers market gave Mueller inspiration to start her own business and allowed her to test her products’ success. “If people like it, they will keep coming back,” she said. Customers kept com-
ing back, including in the off-season when they called her at her home with orders for confections. Opening her own store seemed like the next step. She opened her business in February 2012. With the success of the store, Mueller has been able to expand her bakery to serve lunch and a daily soup. Bearden likes to consider the market an “economic incubator.” THE MARKET has dedicated vendors. Many, such as Julie Aubert with Aubert Acres, help with the setup of the market and the newsletter. Aubert works with her parents, Virginia,
a baker, and Jim, who picks produce. They provide jams, herbs, baked goods and produce. Similar to Mueller, Julie said she and her parents don’t make a large profit but it has helped get their name out. “It has given us a good venue,” Julie said. “We make enough to keep doing it.” THE market is open from 5:30 to 7 p.m. each Thursday beginning April 11 on the southwest corner of the Iola square. EBT-Vision and debit cards are accepted. For more information about the Allen County Farmers Market contact Bearden at (620) 2283069.

Iola native hired as ICC women’s basketball coach By RICHARD LUKEN
INDEPENDENCE — Iola native Leslie Crane, whose family roots in the coaching profession run deep, has a new job. Crane has been hired as head women’s basketball coach at Independence Community College. She replaces Tony Turner, who moves from the women’s program to take the reins of Independence’s men. She worked the past season as an assistant under Turner, and called the head coaching position “a good fit.” “Coach Turner did a great job,” Crane said. “This is a great opportunity for me. Tony rebuilt this program from scratch. It’s up to me to expand upon what he’s built.” Crane, the daughter of longtime Allen Community College men’s basketball coach Neil Crane, has 25 years of her

Aces roll to tourney title KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Allen County Aces, a 16-andunder traveling squad of volleyball players from Iola and surrounding communities swept past all 10 of its opponents to win a tournament in Kansas City Saturday. The wins put the Aces in prime position to make some noise at an upcoming Asics national qualifying tournament at Bartle Hall in Kansas City April 12-14. Teams must be accepted by tournament organizers to participate in the
national qualifier, coach Lori Moore said. The Aces were one of the few “silver” or mid-level teams to be accepted, Moore said. “Essentially, what it means is they’re one of the top 10 of the 98 silver teams in the Heart of America region,” Moore said, which encompasses Kansas and surrounding states. The Aces will also compete at a regional competition in Topeka April 27-28.
BY ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer
CHICAGO (AP) — The Kansas City Royals got everything they envisioned from James Shields — except the win. For that, they can’t blame him. Shields got outpitched by Chris Sale, Tyler Flowers homered and the White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 1-0 in the season opener on Monday. “Today, we just got outplayed overall and you’ve got to tip your hat to Sale over there,” Shields said. The White Sox believe they’re in position to make a run at the AL Central title even though they made no splashy additions while the rest of the division loaded up. They’re off to a good start af-
ter a late fade left them three games behind Detroit a year ago. A dominant performance by Sale and Flowers’ drive leading off the fifth against Shields were just enough to beat a team that’s trying to make a big jump after finishing with a losing record 17 of the past 18 seasons. It also gave the White Sox a rare win over the Royals, who took 12 of 18 from them a year ago. Shields (0-1) was a toughluck loser even though he gave the Royals exactly what they envisioned when they acquired him from Tampa Bay. The former All-Star lasted six innings, allowing just one run and eight hits while striking out six without a walk.
Along with the addition of Ervin Santana from the Los Angeles Angels and the resigning of Jeremy Guthrie after he dazzled in a short stint with Kansas City last season, the Royals believe they have the arms to challenge reigning division champion Detroit and make the playoffs for the first time since the 1985 championship season. “That’s exactly what I expect,” manager Ned Yost said. “We get further into the year and he’d go back out. That’s how good he was throwing the ball. Early, I limit them to 100 pitches. Guys like James and Santana and Guthrie take your 100 pitches and go to work.” See ROYALS | Page B2

Sale (1-0) showed the form that made him a 17game winner and an AllStar in his first season as a starter. On a chilly day when the game-time temperature was 44, he allowed just seven hits and struck out seven while walking one. Sale got an assist in the seventh when second baseman Gordon Beckham dived to his right to snag Lorenzo Cainâ€™s line drive with a runner on first, and he left to a standing ovation after Alcides Escobarâ€™s single with two outs in the eighth. Nate Jones came in and, after Escobar stole second, threw a wild pitch while walking Billy Butler to put runners on first and third. Matt Thornton then struck out Mike Moustakas on three pitches to end the threat, and Addison Reed worked the ninth for the save. Sale, meanwhile, backed up the White Soxâ€™s decision to reward him with a new five-year deal this spring and the
opening day start. â€œI think a lot of stuff â€™s been thrown at him in spring training,â€? manager Robin Ventura said. â€œHe gets the contract, he gets the opening day. Thereâ€™s a lot of expectations of him, but that all comes with it.â€? He said Sale has â€œcome along great.â€? And Butler was impressed: â€œHeâ€™s been pitching pretty well the last year and had another really good game out there.â€? So did Shields. Chicago finally broke through when Flowers drove a high 2-2 changeup out to left-center leading off the fifth. It was his first homer since he went deep against Kansas City last Sept. 8, and for Shields, it was a costly pitch. Otherwise, Yost summed it up with this comment: â€œOh man, dynamic pitching on both sides all day, really. Sale was phenomenal, James Shields was phenomenal. The difference in the game was one high change up and that was it.â€?

Revelry, poignance abundant at opening day By The Associated Press
Josh Hamilton jumped into a cab, headed to Great American Ball Park and got all nostalgic. The Los Angeles Angels newcomer saw Cincinnati fans packed downtown and remembered making his big league debut in the same spot a while ago. “People are lined up in the streets, there’s the parade,” he said. “It’s just an awesome feeling. It never gets old — opening day — especially when you’re where you started.” All across the majors, baseball was in full swing Monday. Bryce Harper put on quite a show in Washington. The 20-year-old star hit home runs his first two times up and earned a few “M-V-P!” chants during a 2-0 win over Miami. At Target Field in Minnesota, players and fans bundled up. It was 35 degrees with 17 mph winds as the Twins took on ace Justin Verlander and the AL champion Detroit Tigers, who won 4-2. “It’s whoever whines about it the least, I think, who’ll have the best chance of winning today,” Twins first baseman Justin Morneau said. The hot chocolate line was 12 to 15 people deep at the ballpark while the beer vendors were generally talking among themselves. “It’s opening day. You can’t not come,” said fan Ripley Peterson, dressed in six layers for the chill. “I love baseball, I love the Twins. Opening day is a special thing. Unless it’s like a blizzard, I’m going to be here.” The 2013 season officially opened Sunday night when the Houston Astros beat Texas. Most every other team was in action

Monday. From old rivalries on the coasts — Red Sox-Yankees in New York, Giants-Dodgers in Los Angeles — there was plenty to celebrate with a dozen games. “The three big holidays — Thanksgiving,
Christmas and opening day,” LA co-owner Stan Kasten said, watching the stands at Dodger Stadium fill up before the game against World Series champion San Francisco. A few minutes later, a

ground.” There was a lot more to remember and honor, too. Players, managers, coaches, umpires and everyone else in uniform wore patches in tribute to those killed last December in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. At Yankee Stadium, the names of the 20 children and six educators who died scrolled on the video board in center field during a moment of silence. The honor guard included members of Newtown police and firefighters. Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo had a patch attached to a lapel on his pinstriped charcoal suit. It has the seal of Newtown, a picture of a black ribbon and 26 little black stars, each representing a victim of that shooting. “It’s so we don’t forget about the people in Newtown,” Rizzo said, tapping the patch with his hand. “It honors them and keeps them in our thoughts.” At Citi Field in New York, the Mets honored hundreds of Hurricane Sandy responders and volunteers in a pregame ceremony. A large orange heart with a blue
NY logo was placed in center field and storm volunteers wearing white shirts lined up around it in the shape of home plate. The team donated 1,000 opening day tickets to storm responders and those affected by the destruction. First responders from several organizations, including the NYPD and FDNY, lined up in uniform behind the infield dirt, facing the stands. They remained there as players from the Mets and San Diego Padres lined up along the baselines for pregame introductions Opening day prompted Hamilton to recall his first game in the majors, in Cincinnati in 2007 after he overcame years of drug abuse. The All-Star outfielder who joined the Angels in the offseason returned to Cincinnati for an unusual interleague opener that was won by the Angels 3-1 in 13 innings. “I enjoyed my year here,” he said. “It was the beginning of everything that’s happened so far in my career, so it’s always going to hold a special place in my heart. It’s always fun to come back to the places where you began.”

stadium camera swung to Vin Scully’s booth, where he’s starting his 64th season, and the revered broadcaster pronounced: “It’s time for Dodger baseball.” Dodgers co-owner Magic Johnson was standing on the mound before the game when manager Don Mattingly came out and signaled for a reliever. In came Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax wearing his No. 32 vintage jersey, and the ol’ left-hander threw out the first ball to former Dodgers ace Orel Hershiser. The Dodgers’ current lefty ace, Clayton Kershaw, had a memorable opening performance, launching his first career home run to break a scoreless tie in the eighth inning before finishing off a four-hitter in a 4-0 win. He became the first pitcher to throw a shutout and hit a home run in an opener since Bob Lemon for Cleveland in 1953, according to STATS. “What an awesome feeling,” said Kershaw, who charged around the bases accompanied by a prolonged roar from the sellout crowd of 53,000. “I probably wasn’t feeling my feet hitting the

Franklin Co. sheriff in scandal Accused of tipping off lover of meth bust OTTAWA, Kan. (AP) — A former Franklin County sheriff is accused of tipping off his lover about a meth investigation, according to an ouster petition unsealed Monday. The document, which several media outlets petitioned the court to unseal, provides the first details related to criminal charges filed in February against Jeff Curry and deputy Jerrod Fredricks. Several hours after the document’s release, Curry’s resignation as Franklin County sheriff took effect. Curry and his defense lawyer said the allegations made in the petition are untrue, according to the Ottawa Herald. The petition became public on the same day that the Shawnee County prosecutors handling the case agreed to dismiss two criminal counts against Curry — felony interference with law enforcement operations and misdemeanor official misconduct — if he completes a 12-month diversion agreement. Curry, who announced his resignation plans March 21, will lose his
Kansas law enforcement certification. Meanwhile, a misdemeanor charge of obstructing justice against Fredricks also will be dropped in an agreement with prosecutors that requires him to relinquish his Kansas law enforcement certification, the Lawrence Journal World reported. The Franklin County sheriff ’s office referred calls to the county attorney’s office, which was closed late Monday afternoon when The Associated Press called. Curry, who was appointed sheriff in 2010 and then elected in 2012, doesn’t have a listed home phone number. The Franklin County attorney filed the ouster petition in February, saying a confidential informant claimed in May to have seen the exsheriff ’s lover purchase methamphetamine. The petition said Curry told a deputy to notify federal authorities about the informant’s allegations and that Curry then told his lover details about those accusations. A Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent who was investigating the case learned that Curry had tipped off his lover. When the KBI inter-
viewed Curry in September, he admitted to telling his lover she was going to be a subject in a drug investigation, the petition said. The document said Curry falsely told the KBI agent he wasn’t having “an inappropriate or sexual relationship” with the woman. The petition said that constituted felony interference with a law enforcement officer. In seeking Curry’s ouster, the prosecutor wrote in the petition that Curry “willfully engaged in misconduct while in office.” The Associated Press is not identifying Curry’s lover because she hasn’t been charged with a crime. But Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe acknowledged Monday that the woman has worked as an attorney in his office for about a year and that he has unsuccessfully pressed the KBI and prosecutors in Shawnee and Franklin counties for more information. “Once we receive all the facts, we will make a decision on this matter,” Howe told the AP. “Beyond that we cannot comment on this personnel matter any further.”
Kansas briefs Soil still needs more rain
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service says more precipitation is still needed across the state to replenish soil moisture and stock ponds. The agency reported Monday that topsoil moisture was short to very short in 46 percent of the state. Subsoil moisture levels were short to very short across 81 percent of Kansas. The agency’s weekly snapshot of winter wheat showed 29 percent of the Kansas crop rated in poor to very poor condition. About 40 percent is in fair shape, while 29 percent is in good and 2 percent excellent condition. KASS also said that just 13 percent of the Kansas winter wheat crop has jointed. That compares with 57 percent at the same time last year and a long-term average of 22 percent.
Couple offers reward in horse’s death
GRANTVILLE, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas couple wants to know why someone shot and killed their daughter’s 11-yearold horse. Gary and Ara Carbonneau are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest in the shooting of the chestnut filly named Aimee. WIBW reports
All ads are 10 word minimum, must run consecutive days. DEADLINE: 2 p.m. day before publication; GARAGE SALE SPECIAL: Paper & Web only, no shopper: 3 Days $1 per word
the couple’s insurance company added another $1,000 to the reward fund. The couple says someone trespassed on their property last Tuesday and shot the horse at point-blank range. Topeka veterinarian Ed Kester says the bullet passed through the horse’s liver and stomach before lodging in her intestine. The Jefferson County Sheriff ’s Office is investigating.
Company accused of hiring illegals
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — An eastern Kansas framing company, its three owners and four crew leaders have been charged in a 31-count indictment accusing them of harboring illegal immigrants who worked for the company. A federal indictment unsealed Monday accuses Advantage Framing, a Spring Hill company, of knowingly hiring illegal immigrants to gain an unfair commercial advantage. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says the company issued checks to crew leaders to cash and pay workers, but didn’t pay Social Security, workers compensation or unemployment insurance benefits. The defendants are charged with conspiracy to harbor illegal aliens for commercial advantage and private finan-
cial gain, harboring illegal aliens, conspiracy to commit money laundering and money laundering. They were to appear in court late Monday afternoon. It wasn’t immediately clear if any had obtained an attorney.
Woman sentenced for embezzlement
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A northeast Kansas woman is going to federal prison for embezzling more than $561,000 from the Missouri company where she worked for 14 years. The U.S. Attorney’s office says 53-year-old Paula Cathey, of Leavenworth, was sentenced Monday to three years and five months in prison. She was also ordered to pay about $557,000 in restitution. Cathey was the controller for Mega Industries Inc., a heavyconstruction company located in North Kansas City, Mo. She pleaded guilty last October to 15 counts of bank fraud, admitting she wrote unauthorized company checks to herself and forged the signatures of company officers. Prosecutors said Cathey used the stolen money mostly for gambling. She hid the crimes partly by destroying most of the company’s monthly bank statements.

Hills red flag for transmission Dear Tom and Ray:
I live in the San Francisco Bay area and love my 2003 Nissan Maxima. It works fine, except for a problem we began to experience last summer. On a trip to Las Vegas in hot weather, the car began to shift into third gear very roughly when we started climbing into the mountains. The temperature was in the high 90s, and the engine temperature went up, though not to the danger level. When the car shifted back into fourth, again, the shifting was very rough. On returning home, I brought it to the dealer. They could not find any problem, but we changed the transmission fluid, which was needed. We had the same problem going to Arizona a month later.
High temperature, high altitude and a steep grade brought on the problem. Everything has been fine since
Tom and Ray Magliozzi then, until we went to Los Angeles. The same problem occurred when crossing the Grapevine in 100-degree weather. We can’t duplicate the problem for the dealer, since the weather is always cool, and we live near sea level. No one seems to know what is causing the problem or even where to look. If I get on the freeway here, I can floor the car, and it shifts smooth as silk.
We’re going to Arizona again soon. Can you help? — Jim TOM: Yes, we can help. We’re attaching the names of rental car agencies near you, Jim. RAY: It sounds to me like a transmission problem. And while it’s happening only in hot weather on hills now, it’s likely to start happening at other times sooner or later. TOM: Going up steep hills in hot weather is when you put the greatest amount of stress on your transmission. Well, steep hills, hot weather and two mothers-in-law in the back seat. But generally speaking, that’s when a transmission is under the greatest load and is working the hardest. So, if something is wrong, that’s when you’re first likely to see it. RAY: It could be something relatively easy to fix, like a lazy solenoid, a sticky valve or a software issue that can be solved by re-flashing your transmission computer. Or it could be the proverbial beginning of the end for this transmission. We don’t know. TOM: If you don’t want to rent a car for your hot-weather trips and you’re reluctant to spend a lot of money
on exploratory transmission surgery at this point, I’d have a mechanic install an auxiliary transmission cooler for you. That’ll cost you a couple of hundred bucks. RAY: An auxiliary transmission cooler essentially is a small radiator that lowers the temperature of the transmission fluid. It’s often used by vehicles that tow things, because towing is very similar to climbing steep hills in that it puts an extra load on the transmission and makes it run hot. TOM: If you’re lucky, and you’ve led a good, clean life, that’ll keep the transmission temperature low enough to prevent the problem from occurring. At least for a while. RAY: Like we said, though, at some point, this probably will start happening in lower temperatures and on gentler hills. Good thing you don’t have any hills in San Francisco, right, Jim? TOM: So keep in mind that even if our suggestion works, in all likelihood, you’ll still need more serious transmission repair — or replacement — at some point down the line.

Hurricane debris removal no easy task By JACQUELINE L. URGO
MANTOLOKING, N.J. â€” Buddy Young and his crew wait pensively on a dock, two-way radios in hand, for a â€œpickerâ€? boat a half-mile out on Barnegat Bay to report on precisely what the long-arm boom mounted to the front of the vessel managed to pull from the murky waters this time. Even from so far away, itâ€™s obvious when the robotic, dinosaurlike jawsof-steel pull a mud-covered car or the wall of a house from the 6-footdeep bay. But sometimes the distance makes the type of debris less immediately identifiable. Thatâ€™s the case on this recent morning as Young and a dozen other employees of CrowderGulf, an Alabama-based recovery and debris management company, work in the bay just off Mantoloking. Their mission, at the direction of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, is to clear obstacles dumped in the water by Superstorm Sandy before the summer boating season begins in June. The cleanup cost will depend on how much debris is collected, officials said, but it will likely be in the tens of millions.
â€œOK, that looks good,â€? Young murmurs into the radio as what appears to be a mangled portion of stairs from a wooden dock, amalgamated with a bit of crumpled sailboat canvas, is placed on the bargeâ€™s flat bed. Earlier in the day, the pickers, following a map of floating yellow markers placed by a team from Matrix New World Engineering of Florham Park, yanked a car out of the water and floated it to the shore. Partnered with CrowderGulf, Matrix surveys the bay using side-scan sonar to find submerged objects and marks their locations. The engineersâ€™ acoustic imaging system is so precise that it can produce a 3-D image of an object as small as 10 inches across, depending on the conditions in the bay, said Nick Pratt, a CrowderGulf supervisor. Whatever is pulled out â€” a vehicle, front door, a kitchen sink â€” likely ended up on the bottom of the bay thanks to the ferocious Sandy, which on Oct. 29 sent three-story-tall waves out of the Atlantic Ocean over this narrow northern Ocean County resort town and into the bay. When it was over, 60 houses from Mantoloking alone, plus dozens of cars and boats, hun-

Crews working with claws on barges have pulled out more than 2,000 cubic yards of trees, timber, fences, backyard and household items, boats, cars, and other navigation hazards. dreds of trees, and thousands of other objects, had washed out to sea or were deposited into the bay and the Intracoastal Waterway, creating boating hazards. Because of Sandy and its destruction, the state has hired a team of contractors to remove such obstacles from coastal and tidal waterways along New Jerseyâ€™s 127 miles of coastline, from

depends on what the water is willing to give up.â€? On the open-air boats in the middle of the bay, it can be cold and tedious as late winter breezes whip across the water. When they arrived on the scene this month, the companyâ€™s first order of business was to pull visible debris â€” 1,200 cubic yards â€” from the banks and any floating debris from the water. Now the precision work has begun. Using as many as eight boats on any given day, the crews ply the waters following the yellow markers, and try to find debris in the shallows and along the deeper navigational channels.
HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR STEAK?

At Bollingâ€™s Meat Market and Moran Locker we offer a variety of top steak cuts. Popular selections include the porterhouse,T-bone, filet mignon, New York strip, rib eye and sirloin. Porterhouse and T-bone steaks are similar. Each comes from the short loin area and has a tenderloin on one side and a strip loin on the other. The steaks are tender, but can be expensive. Filet mignons and New York strips also come from the short loin area. Filet mignons are sometimes cut from the porterhouse and are very tender and low in fat. New York strips resemble porterhouse steaks without the tenderloin and bone. Both steaks are moderately priced. Rib eyes come from the rib area and are also moderately priced. Sirloins come in various cuts from the sirloin area. Top sirloins are the most tender. Sirloins, in general, cost less than other cuts of steak. Once you select a cut of steak, you must decide how you would like it cooked. Choices include well done, medium well, medium, medium rare and rare. Well-done steaks are cooked through completely and contain no pink in the center. Medium-well steaks have a warm, slightly pink center. Medium steaks have a warm, pink center. Medium-rare steaks have a cool, pink center. Rare steaks are cooked slightly and have a cool, red center.

Each day of their work, they will zero in on particular locales until the entire stretch is swept. A final sonar scan will be made to determine when the work is completed, he said. The search could go as deep as 30 feet, but Barnegat Bay is fairly shallow. â€œYou can have a day where you find dozens of things in a matter of hours or a day where it takes all day to find one car,â€?

Itâ€™s Youngâ€™s job, as the operations director for CrowderGulf, to oversee the removal of the objects in the Barnegat Bay and discern whether they did end up there as the result of Sandy. The federal government will pay for the disposal only of items from the storm, he said. Young has decades of experience sifting through debris. On the rare occasion when heâ€™s uncertain about an item, he sets it safely aside for inspection by state or other authorities to determine origin before disposal.
