Plains storm gathers strength

WRESTLING IHS trio heads to state See B1


By JIM SALTER Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) — An armada of snow plows and salt spreaders deployed Wednesday on highways across the nation’s heartland working to stay ahead of a powerful winter storm that already is blamed for one road death. Winter storm warnings were issued from Colorado through Illinois, with as much as a foot of snow expected in several areas. Kelly Sugden, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Dodge City, Kan., said early this morning that the storm was moving a bit slower than was previously forecast but that it was “starting to get back together.” “It’s very active,” Sugden said, noting the snowfall was mixed with lightning and sleet showers. Sugden said Wednesday’s highest snowfall total for the state was 6? inches recorded in the tiny central town of Rozel. He said they were expecting heavy snow but not blizzard conditions. Still, he warned

City of Iola crews clear the streets around the square early Thursday morning in an effort to make roadways driveable before citizens head to work. A strong winter closed area schools and businesses. that the Interstate 70 corridor could see as much as 13 inches of snow with drifts adding to the danger for drivers. Heavy snow was already falling in Colorado and western Kansas by midday Wednesday. In Oklahoma, roads were covered with a slushy mix of

snow and ice that officials said caused a crash that killed an 18-year-old man. Cody Alexander, 18, of Alex, Okla., died Wednesday when the pickup truck he was driving skidded out of control in slush on State Highway 19, crossed into oncoming traf-

fic and was hit by a truck, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said. The other driver was not seriously injured. And in northern Arkansas a school bus crashed Wednesday afternoon on a steep, snowy country road, leaving three students and the driver

with minor injuries. Pope County Sheriff Aaron Duval said the bus slid off a road on Crow Mountain, nearly flipping before it was stopped by trees at the roadside. Officials feared the winter storm would be the worst in See STORM | Page A4

Iolan family opens Bargain Factory By ALLISON TINN

“It’s family taking care of family,” a motto Candee Callaway and her family live by. Candee, her daughter Callee, her sister-in law Carol Settlemyer and longtime family friend, Margaret Reinhart, have opened a franchise bargain store, The Bargain Factory, in honor of the late Jim Callaway, whose dream was to give the Iola community some-

thing more. The store, in the old Sigg Auto parts, 214 S. Washington Ave., opened its doors for the first time on President’s Day. Jim and Candee bought the building in 2011, always with the intention of opening a bargain store. The store was scheduled to open last August, but Jim passed away in July. It took some time but Candee and her family finished See BARGAIN | Page A2

Jack Steiner can tell a story as well as anyone and he is getting more opportunities these days. Steiner has cut hair in Iola since 1966, part time until two weeks ago. Then, Greg Shields, with whom he had worked the previous 12 years in a shop

owned by John Zahm at 110 West St., opened his own shop on the opposite side of the Iola square. Steiner was faced with either hanging up his clippers or adjusting his hours. For the past several years he had cut hair on Tuesdays and Saturdays, after having spent many years previous to that

working at the shop on Saturdays, while teaching and coaching in Yates Center. His decision was to have the shop open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. “I decided not to work Saturdays, for the first time in more than 45 years,” said Steiner, 66. “I have twin See BARBER | Page A2

Focus turns to investigation By LYNN HORSLEY, LAURA BAUER, ALAN BAVELEY and JUDY L. THOMAS The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Mo. _ A body was found Wednesday morning in the debris of JJ’s restaurant, where fire crews searched for a female server missing after a massive explosion rocked the area just west of Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza Tuesday night. The body was discovered in the bar area in the southwest

corner of the building. In Springfield, Mo., the family of Megan Cramer told The Kansas City Star that it had been contacted by authorities in Kansas City. Cramer, 46, had been a server at JJ’s for several months. The family said confirmation using medical records might take 24 to 48 hours. Kansas City Fire Chief Paul Berardi said the restaurant was reduced to rubble 3 or 4 feet deep, with debris too heavy for crews to lift manually, requiring heavy equipment for a careful search. Vol. 115, No.82

But the fire department is also mindful that, with a winter storm bearing down on Kansas City, it needs to work quickly to try to find anyone who might still be in the building. “We’re working two critical situations,” he said. “We have a short window of time to do a lot of work. We’ll continue through this process to ensure that there aren’t other victims.” He said search and rescue crews and cadaver dogs spent three hours Tuesday night See EXPLOSION | Page A2

brother, Bill, was parked behind the second chair in Zahm’s shop. He caught on at a sixchair shop in the White Lakes Mall in Topeka, then the largest shop in Kansas, but was back in Iola before long after Bill opened his own shop in Yates Center. Before he had settled in too much, Steiner, known for his varied in-

RIGHT OUT of Yates Center High in 1964, Steiner, as it is with many his age, didn’t have a definite idea of what he wanted to do with his adult life. “I’d watched an old Yates Center barber, and envied how he always had a good time visiting with customers and seemed to be making good money,” Steiner recalled between haircuts Wednesday afternoon. Barber school being a six-month session also wasn’t lost on young Steiner. In 1966 he joined Zahm at the Iola shop, but wasn’t there long. Steiner was activated with the National Guard and had a six-month tour at Fort Polk, La. When he returned to Iola, his

— John Zahm

terests, enrolled at Allen County Community College and over five years, taking five to six credit hours a semester, earned an associate’s degree. He went on to Emporia State to earn a teaching degree. Soon he was back in Yates Center, teaching and coaching, and hooked back up with Zahm, working Saturdays. “I started the Tuesday and Saturday schedule in 2002,” with Shields after Zahm retired in 1999, Steiner said, and kept with it until the first of this month when Shields moved to his new shop. “JACK WAS a delight to have in the shop,” Zahm recalled. “He kept me and the customers

laughing with all the stories he told, and his storytelling led me to talk more with my customers.” Many of his stories were self-deprecating, Steiner allowed. “I’ve made a few mistakes in my life and I’ve never been afraid to admit it when I did,” Steiner said. “I had a class in salesmanship from Don Andrews at the college (ACCC), and he said one thing he liked about me was that I could make fun of myself.” Zahm often got into the act. “When Jack went to solo when he was learning to fly, I went along to watch him crash,” Zahm quipped. ZAHM, 72, AND Steiner, from their long association with the shop, have a historical perspective. “When I started in 1966, there were 11 shops in Iola and 13 barbers,” Steiner said. “Now we have three shops and four barbers.” Neither knows for certain how long there has been a shop at 110 West St. West Street Barber Shop was there in the 1940s, and Zahm once found a sign that advertised haircuts for 10 cents, which leads him to think the shop was there back to the 1930s, or even before. Zahm arrived in Iola in 1963, after starting his tonsorial career in Columbus. A supplies salesman mentioned to Zahm that Charlie Reeder was wanting to sell his shop

— at 110 West St. — and Zahm found it to his liking, although right off the bat he wasn’t sure the choice was a wise one. “My first night in Iola I slept in the backseat of my car,” he said. “I didn’t have any money” — wasn’t immediately sure when he might. “One of my first days in the shop it was 4 in the afternoon before I cut my first head of hair,” Zahm said. Then, haircuts were $1.25, and once he was established Zahm was cutting 20 or more heads each day. Most customers stopped by every two to three weeks, but then long hair became the fad in the late 1960s. Time between visits lengthened and for the first time beauticians found men and boys stopping by their shops for stylish cuts. Not to be left out, Zahm attended several styling seminars and added “style” to the name his shop. “Some barbers didn’t want to cut the longer hair, but it didn’t bother me,” he said. “I did whatever people wanted.” Zahm’s vocational choice was prompted by a friend of his parents who cut hair at a “speed shop” in Wichita. “They cut hair as fast as they could and he (the friend) always had a wad of money in his pocket,” Zahm said. “I thought, ‘Why be a farmer (he grew up on farm) when you can cut hair and have a pocketful of money.’”

up the project and opened the store in Jim’s memory. The store carries food, hardware, tennis shoes and home décor, all which can be bought for a steal of a price. “We offer a little bit of everything,” Candee said. “We will have coolers and milk going here soon.” The store has been open a week and so far the ladies have received great feedback from customers.

“We have gotten a lot of repeat customers and one lady has come everyday,” Candee said. Merchandise comes from Grandview, Mo., home of the store’s main locations. Customers can even shop online at,, and their items will come with the next regular shipment. The business opportunity came from Candee’s father Orbellee Cooper and David Merryman.

Candee said The Bargain Factory, a subsidiary of ELDO W.R.M.S., Inc., offers small towns affordable shopping. THE BUILDING had to have renovations made, which Callee said was done by her father. “He redid a lot. He painted, put in the ceiling fans, built the glass cases and had to break down a lot of walls,” said Callee, a senior at Crest High School. “It was like a one-man show,” Candee said.

searching the scene. Ambulances took nine people to area hospitals Tuesday night and six others made their own way to hospitals. University of Kansas Hospital said Wednesday afternoon that it had five patients whose conditions ranged from serious to extremely critical. St. Luke’s Hospital has one patient, a male in serious condition with trauma injuries and smoke inhalation. A KU Hospital trauma surgeon described injuries comparable to what might be seen in wartime: severe concussions, lacerations, multiple fractures, injuries to the liver and spleen, lung injuries that may require days or weeks on a ventilator, burns that will require multiple surgeries. The explosion was reported about 6 p.m. Tuesday and is believed to have come from a natural gas leak. Some witnesses have reported smelling natural gas several hours before the explosion, but

both Berardi and City Manager Troy Schulte said Wednesday morning that they were not aware of any gas leak lasting that long.

Fun evaporates in today’s Egypt By THOMAS FRIEDMAN The New York Times

The Daily News of Egypt reported that the national administrative court ruled last week that the popular Al-Tet “belly dancing channel” be taken off the air for broadcasting without a license. Who knew that Egypt had a belly dancing channel? (Does Comcast know about this?) It is evidently quite popular but apparently offensive to some of the rising Islamist forces in Egypt. It is not clear how much the Muslim Brotherhood’s party had to do with the belly ban, but what is clear is that no one in Egypt is having much fun these days. The country is more divided than ever between Islamist and less religious and liberal parties, and the Egyptian currency has lost 8 percent of its value against the dollar in the last two months. Even more disturbing, there has been a sharp increase lately in cases of police brutality and rape directed at opposition protesters. It is all adding up to the first impression that President Mohamed Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood are blowing their first chance at power. Sometime in the next few months, Morsi is to visit the White House. He has only one chance to make a second impression if he wants to continue to receive U.S. aid from Congress. But the more I see of Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt, the more I wonder if it has any second impression to offer. Since the start of the 2011 revolution in Tahrir Square, every time the Muslim Brotherhood faced a choice of whether to behave in an inclusive way or grab more power, true to its Bolshevik tendencies it grabbed more power and sacrificed inclusion. This was true whether it was about how quickly to hold elections (before the opposition could organize) or how quickly to draw up and vote on a new constitution (before opposition complaints could be addressed) or how broadly to include opposition figures in the government (as little as possible). The opposition is not blameless — it has taken too long to get its act together — but Morsi’s power grab will haunt him. Egypt is in dire economic condition. Youth unemployment is rampant, everything is in decay, tourism and foreign investment and reserves are down sharply. As a result, Egypt needs an I.M.F. bailout. Any bailout, though, will involve economic pain — including cuts in food and fuel subsidies to shrink Egypt’s steadily widening budget deficit. This will hurt. In order to get Egyptians to sign on to that pain, a big majority needs to feel invested in the government and its success. And that is not the case today. Morsi desperately needs a national unity government, made up of a broad cross-section of Egyptian parties, but, so far, the Muslim Brotherhood has

failed to reach any understanding with the National Salvation Front, the opposition coalition. Egypt also desperately needs foreign investment to create jobs. There are billions of dollars of Egyptian capital sitting outside the country today, because Egyptian investors, particularly Christians, are fearful of having money confiscated or themselves arrested on specious charges, as happened to some after President Hosni Mubarak’s fall. One of the best things Morsi could do for himself and for Egypt would be to announce an amnesty of everyone from the Mubarak era who does not have blood on his hands or can be proved in short order to have stolen government money. Egypt needs every ounce of its own talent and capital it can mobilize back home. This is no time for revenge. The Brotherhood, though, doesn’t just need a new governing strategy. It needs to understand that its version of political Islam — which is resistant to women’s empowerment and religious and political pluralism — might be sustainable if you are Iran or Saudi Arabia, and you have huge reserves of oil and gas to buy off all the contradictions between your ideology and economic growth. But if you are Egypt and basically your only natural resource is your people — men and women — you need to be as open to the world and modernity as possible to unleash all of their potential for growth. Bottom line: Either the Muslim Brotherhood changes or it fails — and the sooner it realizes that the better. I understand why President Obama’s team prefers to convey this message privately: so the political forces in Egypt don’t start focusing on us instead of on each other. That’s wise. But I don’t think we are conveying this message forcefully enough. And Egyptian democracy advocates certainly don’t. In an open letter to President Obama last week in Al-Ahram Weekly, the Egyptian human rights activist Bahieddin Hassan wrote Obama that the muted “stances of your administration have given political cover to the current authoritarian regime in Egypt and allowed it to fearlessly implement undemocratic policies and commit numerous acts of repression.” It would not be healthy for us to re-create with the Muslim Brotherhood the bargain we had with Mubarak. That is, just be nice to Israel and nasty to the jihadists and you can do whatever you want to your own people out back. It also won’t be possible. The Egyptian people tolerated that under Mubarak for years. But now they are mobilized, and they have lost their fear. Both we and Morsi need to understand that this old bargain is not sustainable any longer.

Grand bargain on life support WASHINGTON — The grand bargain may not be dead, but it has been given its last rites. On Tuesday morning, as President Obama and House Republicans were abandoning hope of reaching a compromise to avoid across-the-board spending cuts on March 1, the indefatigable duo of Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson made one more attempt to float a bipartisan compromise. They were literally shouted down. Seconds after Bowles and Simpson were introduced at a breakfast forum hosted by Politico, hecklers in the audience began to interrupt: “Pay your share of taxes! Stop cutting jobs! Stop cutting Medicare and Medicaid!” “Wait your turn,” pleaded the moderator, Politico’s Mike Allen, as the half-dozen demonstrators were gradually removed. After the ruckus subsided, Simpson, a former Republican senator from Wyoming, smiled. “You’ll note how sweet I’ve been in the last few minutes, which is not my trait,” he said. No, but Simpson and Bowles have learned to suffer indignities — and hecklers are the least of the trouble. The real insults are coming from the White House and the Capitol, where the two men and their happy notions of compromise are on the outs. How far out? Allen asked them when they last spoke with Obama, who had chosen them to lead his fiscal commission. “Personally, I suppose a year and a half, or something,” Simpson replied. Bowles considered. “Uh, before the election,” he answered. Bowles, a former chief of staff in Bill Clinton’s White House, was particularly grim as he made his latest effort to spur compromise. “The idea of a grand bargain is at best on life support,” he said at a

news conference before the breakfast. Later, with the cameras rolling, he spoke gloomily about the failure to reach a

Dana Milbank Washington Post Writers Group comprehensive deal to avoid the “fiscal cliff.” “What we felt at the end of last year was a disappointment like no other that I’ve ever experienced,” he said. “It was the time when we had the best chance to really do something serious.” As if to show their lack of seriousness, Obama and House Speaker John Boehner made their own statements later Tuesday morning devoted to blame-fixing. Obama appeared onstage with first-responders, their brass badges offset by navy dress uniforms. “Republicans in Congress face a simple choice,” he said. “Are you willing to see a bunch of first-responders lose their jobs because you want to protect some special-interest tax loophole?” Obama was so focused on scolding Congress for its “meat-cleaver approach” that he lost control of his metaphors. “We’ve got more work to do than to just try to dig ourselves out of these self-inflicted wounds,” he said. Boehner responded with a written statement condemning “the president’s campaignstyle event criticizing his own sequester,” the term for the automatic spending cuts. The statement went on to mention “his sequester” and “the president’s sequester” three times. Neither is offering anything close to a workable plan. Boehner’s is the most absurd. His House Republicans are proposing to balance the

budget in a decade, which would mean cuts of $4 trillion over 10 years, without any tax increase. If Republicans are serious about exempting Social Security, Medicare and defense from cuts, they’d have to slash everything else government does by nearly 40 percent. Obama’s plan is only slightly more sensible. He’s abandoned any thought of reducing the debt, planning only to stabilize it at its historically high level by reducing deficits by just $1.5 trillion over 10 years through a combination of tax increases and spending cuts. He made a point of saying Tuesday that he is willing to cut health care costs over 10 years by the same level “proposed by the bipartisan Simpson-Bowles commission” — $400 billion. But that proposal was made in 2010, and the nation’s finances have since deteriorated. Simpson and Bowles said Tuesday that health care cuts would need to be $600 billion over a decade. That’s part of their new plan to shave $2.4 trillion from the deficit over 10 years; they would also raise $600 billion in tax revenue by limiting deductions, and cut an additional $1.2 trillion from farm subsidies, Social Security and other programs. Bowles on Tuesday restated the obvious: Obama needs to accept deeper cuts to the government’s health care spending, and Republicans need to accept more tax increases. But this assumes both sides want a grand bargain to right the nation’s finances, and it’s no longer obvious that they do. “These guys here aren’t interested in winning,” Simpson said. “They’re interested in making the other side lose — in fact, rubbing the other side’s nose in it.” Dana Milbank’s email address is

Physicist, Nobel winner dies ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — Robert C. Richardson, a Cornell University professor who shared a Nobel Prize for a key discovery in experimental physics, has died. He was 75. Richardson died Tuesday in Ithaca from complications of a heart attack, Cornell said Wednesday. He and fellow Cornell researchers David Lee and Douglas Osheroff were awarded the Nobel for 1996 for their 1971 work on lowtemperature physics involving the isotope helium-3, which has contributed to research ranging from the properties of microscopic

matter to astrophysics. Richardson was born in Washington, D.C., earned his bachelors and masters degrees in physics at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and a doctorate at Duke University, where he studied with the physicist Horst Meyer and later served as a trustee. He joined Cornell in 1968 and was named Floyd R. Newman Professor of Physics in 1987. He was also Cornell’s first provost for research from 1998 to 2003. “Bob Richardson was an extraordinary physicist who used his deep understanding of the scientific enterprise to shape the course of research

at Cornell and nationally,” said Cornell President David Skorton. As co-author of the 2005 National Academy of Sciences report “Rising Above the Gathering Storm: Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future,” Richardson called for the U.S. to ensure it remains globally competitive in science and technology. Lee, now a physics professor at Texas A&M University, and Osheroff, a professor emeritus at Stanford University, both praised Richardson as a role model and mentor for colleagues and graduate students.

the Midwest since the Groundhog Day blizzard in 2011. A two-day storm that began Feb. 1, 2011, was blamed for about two dozen deaths and left hundreds of thousands without power, some for several days. At its peak, the storm created whiteout conditions so intense that Interstate 70 was shut down across the entire state of Missouri. Tim Chojnacki, spokesman for the Missouri Department of Transportation, said it planned to have salt trucks on the roads before the storm arrived in the Show-Me State in hopes that the precipitation would largely melt upon impact. Much of Kansas was expected to get up to a foot of snow, which many rural residents welcomed after nearly a year of drought. Ray and Grace Wools, Kincaid, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday. They will be honored at a reception from 2 to 4 p.m, Sunday at Hope Chapel on highway U.S. 54, two miles east of Moran.

The storm made extra work, but Diane McReynolds said it would help their winter wheat, pastures and dried-up ponds. “In the city you hear they don’t want the snow and that sort of thing, and I am thinking, ‘Yes, we do,’ and they don’t realize that we need it,” she said. “We have to have it or their food cost in the grocery store is going to go very high. We have to have this. We pray a lot for it.” Meanwhile, a separate snow storm caught many drivers by surprise in California, leaving hundreds stranded on mountain highways.

Lawrence, and Christian and Jodie Murphy, Stark. They have been blessed to have such a great friend and family. Friends and family are invited to join in the celebration. The family requests no gifts, they said the presence of their family and friends will be their presents.

Upcoming events were mentioned at the Feb. 14 meeting of the Iola Amateur Radio Club. March 3-9 is Kansas Severe Weather Awareness Week; March 4 club members will meet with Pam Beasley, emergency management director, at the critical response center at 7:30 p.m. A ham radio storm drill is scheduled at 1 p.m. on March 9. Extreme weather chasing will be the topic of a meeting at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center March 12. The next club meeting is March 14.

Upcoming hamfests are April 2, Kansas City, and May 6, Stone Castle, Branson, Mo. Members learned that two repeaters were installed at the 911 center and the battery backup for the club’s two-meter rig was checked and found in fine fettle. Robert Klubek passed his technician test.

jave and Bakersfield was closed Wednesday, and several school districts closed. No injuries were reported. Schools also were closed in northern Arizona and Colorado with snow there. Mindy Crane, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Transportation, said hundreds of plows had been deployed for what was expected to be one of the most significant snow storms of the season. Just the threat of snow led to a series of shutdowns in the middle of the country. Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback closed state government from this morning through Friday morning

and urged residents to stay off the roads. Lawmakers in Nebraska and Iowa cancelled committee meetings and hearings, and the Arkansas Senate voted to recess until Monday so lawmakers could make it home before the worst of the storm hit. University of Nebraska officials moved a Big Ten men’s basketball game against Iowa from today to Saturday. National Weather Service meteorologist Jayson Gosselin said precipitation is generally expected to drop off as the storm makes its way east. Chicago and parts of Indiana, he said, could get about 2 inches of snow and some sleet.

Prep tourneys set

Register/Richard Luken

Iola High wrestlers Stephen McDonald, Trey Colborn and Bryce Misenhelter were given a low-key send-off Wednesday as they departed for Salina for the Class 4A State Wrestling Tournament. The wrestlers and coach Brad Carson left one day early because of the ongoing winter storm. Shown here are, from left, McDonald, IHS athletics director Martin Bambick, Colborn, Misenhelter and Carson.

Wresters geared for state SALINA — Three Iola wrestlers followed varying paths en route to the Class 4A state wrestling tournament, which opens Friday. Senior Stephen McDonald and sophomore Trey Colborn, both of whom are previous state qualifiers, both were sidelined due to injury or illness for extended periods. Meanwhile, junior Bryce Misenhelter was perhaps the Mustangs’ most consistently tough wrestler each week. McDonald takes his 21-3 record to the Salina Bicenten-

nial Center in the 220-pound division. It should be noted a shoulder injury played a role in all three losses. He injured his shoulder in a loss to Gershm Avalos, the secondranked 4A wrestler in the state at that weight level, in early January. McDonald returned in early February, only to tweak his shoulder again in a default injury loss. He rested his shoulder last weekend for the championship match and potential rematch with Avalos in the Class 4A re-

gional tournament. McDonald will take on Tiler Garcia (26-15) of Baldwin in the opening round. Avalos takes a 31-6 record into Salina. Other wrestlers to watch are top-ranked Justin Scott (35-0) from Topeka’s Jefferson West High School. Thomas Miller (35-6) is from Tonganoxie, while Austin Gates of Pratt (28-8), Otto Orosco (27-7) of Ulysses and Jon Yates (30-6) of Buhler also expected to be heard from. See WRESTLERS | Page B4

Iola High’s basketball teams will open the Class 4A Substate Tournament in Altamont Tuesday to take on Labette County. Playoff pairings for the postseason playoffs were announced Wednesday. The Fillies (1-18) are the seventh seed and will take on the third-seeded Grizzlies (12-7) at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The Mustangs (7-12) holds the sixth seed and will face third-seeded Labette County (14-5) at about 7:30 p.m. Typically, the boys and girls play on different nights at substate until the championship round. The only exception is when both teams play on the road at the same school, such

as in Iola’s case. If the Mustangs defeat Labette County, they would face either second seed Independence (15-5) or seventh seed Parsons (3-16). Coffeyville’s Field Kindley High holds the top seed at 16-4 and will host eighth seed Towanda-Circle (3-16) Monday. Fourth seed El Dorado (13-6) hosts fifth-seeded Chanute (11-9) in the other quarterfinal. Independence High School is the host for this year’s Class 4A substate and will serve as the site for the semifinal and final rounds. The semifinals are Thursday, Feb. 28, for the See TOURNEYS | Page B4

Allen sweeps Evangel SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Allen Community College’s baseball team won a pair of games at opposite ends of the spectrum Tuesday, pounding out a 1614 slug-fest win over Evangel University, then receiving a two-hit shutout in a 6-0 win in the finale. The victories improved Allen’s record to 2-3 on the season. Games today at Oklahoma Wesleyan University have been canceled due to weather. Allen took advantage of 15 hits and five Evangel errors, while doing much of its damage in innings 3 through 5. A walk to Trey Francis trig-

gered a four-run third. Troy Willoughby followed with a run-scoring single. After singles by Tim Lewis and Jerrik Sigg, Nate Arnold provided the big blast of the frame, a three-run home run. Evangel responded with a five-run inning of its own to take a 6-4 lead before the Red Devils bounced right back with a six-run fourth. This time, a hit batsmen — Cody Amerine was the victim — was followed by singles by Cole Slusser and Francis. Clint Heffern drove in Amerine with a sacrifice See SWEEP | Page B4

ACC women prevail By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

The Allen Community Collegewomen were threatened by several comeback attempts from the Blue Devils Wednesday night, but those worries were put to rest in the second half. Red Devils defeated Kansas City, Kan., Community College 63-52 after after taking the lead midway through the first half, and holding it from there. Allen overcame a small deficit early in the first half with a 3-pointer from DaNara Day, which she immediately followed with a quick score underneath on an inbound pass. Her scores put the home team up 6-5. Mariah Marusak hit a

long 2-pointer, followed by a 3-pointer from Bailey West to put the Blue Devils up by four with just over nine minutes before the half. ACC’s Brittany Redmond hit two free throws, and Day hit two more from beyond the three-point line to give the Red Devils a 22-17 lead with 2:32 remaining. The halftime buzzer sounded with a 29-19 ACC advantage. After the half, it was slow and steady for both teams, with a fairly even scoring effort from both squads. Kendra Taiclet opened the half with a 3-pointer. The scoring began to come more freely for the home team, with conSee WOMEN | Page B4

Red Devils fall in home finale By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

Allen Community College’s DaNara Day (12) drives past Kansas City, Kan., defender Paris Johnson (5) Wednesday night in Iola. The women won the contest 63-52.

The Allen Community College men were “right there” for the entire game, head coach Andy Shaw said, but a lack of intensity prevented the Red Devils from overcoming what ended up a 69-60 defeat at the hand of Kansas City, Kan., Community College. “We didn’t play with the same effort that we have been for the past three or four

games,” Shaw said. The score bounced back and forth between both teams for the majority of the game, while KCKCC held a slight lead. Antonio Winn and Lamonte Burgette had early scores for the Blue Devils, which had them up 18-12 with 12 minutes left in the half. A surge from the Red Devils had them back in the game in no time. Andrew Rountree hit on a

hard drive from inside, while Ben Uno nailed a three, followed by a 2-pointer from Tray Fountain. Alex Keiswetter hit a two inside to tie the game at 23-all six minutes before the half. A 3-pointer from Seth Walden had ACC in the lead 28-25. But it didn’t last long. The Blue Devils bounced back just before the half. Dominique Washington See MEN | Page B4

Meanwhile, Marmaton Valley, Crest and Yates Center also had games snowed out due to the ongoing snow storm Wintry weather also has sidelined Allen Community College’s baseball and softball teams. The Red Devils softball team was to have traveled to Maplewoods Community College for a doubleheader today. Another home doubleheader Saturday against Muscatine also has been canceled. No makeup date for the Maplewoods games has been decided. The Muscatine twinbill will not be rescheduled. The baseball team’s doubleheader today at Oklahoma Wesleyan has been canceled as well.

FOR THE HONOR of rolling through the regular season undefeated, Humboldt High is “rewarded” with one of the toughest substate brackets in the area. All eight schools in the Class 3A boys substate tournament have at least seven wins. The Cubs (20-0) have the top seed and will host Jayhawk-Linn (7-12) Tuesday evening in the first round. The winner will face either fourthseeded Burlington (13-7) or fifth seed West Franklin (11-8). On the other side of the bracket, second seed Eureka (16-4) will host seventh-seeded Fredonia. The winner will take on either third seed Wellsville (14-6) or sixth seed Central Heights (11-9). On the girls side, Humboldt is the seventh seed, courtesy of its 4-16 record. The Lady Cubs will travel to secondseeded Jayhawk-Linn (12-7) Monday in the first round. The winner will face either third seed Fredonia (11-9) or sixth seed Wellsville (7-13) in the semifinals. Unbeaten Burlington (20-0) is the top seed and will host

hit back-to-back 3-pointers, along with a three from Winn. Evrard Atcho had a hard dunk to end the half with all of the momentum in KCKCC’s favor, 38-31. The visiting team held on to the lead for the remainder of the contest. “We missed easy opportunities around the rim, and a lot of rebounds, too,” Shaw said. “They shot the ball well.” The scoring continued for both squads, however, early in the second half. Josh Rupprechy and Washington had multiple scores from the oppositions side. Keiswetter was all over the court in the beginning of the second half. He had multiple shots underneath, many from rebounds and follow-ups from missed shots. The Red Devils edged within four points late in the contest. Bryce Schippers got into the action with a couple of 3-pointers, and Rountree went to the line multiple times. The Blue Devils, however, resisted the Red Devils’ best efforts. Keiswetter led ACC in

scoring with 11 points, Rickey Roberts and DeAndrae Barnette had 10 apiece. Rountree had eight rebounds, Roberts had four assists. As a team, the Red Devils went 23 for 61 from field-goal range (37.7 percent), and six for 20 from three-point range (30 percent). They hit eight of 14 from the foul line (57.1 percent). Shaw said the team just didn’t have “it,” which was direly needed for any sort of comeback win. Despite a close game at times, he felt that his team didn’t step up and compete when it needed to. “We just got beat,” he said flatly. The Red Devils travel to Cowley Saturday.
