Piano dedication Friday

Register/Richard Luken

Burton Bowlus, 91-year-old nephew of Iolan Thomas Bowlus, whose trust built the Bowlus Fine Arts Center, was in Iola recently to look over a recently refurbished 1905 Henry Miller baby grand piano. Burton Bowlus, who lives in El Dorado, visited the center with his son, Jim, Denver, Colo. Fern Marsh, Iola’s music woman if there ever was one, had left $1,000 in her estate to the benefit of the Bowlus Center and Bowlus supporters agreed that using it as start-up for a capital drive for the piano’s restoration made good sense. Contributions big and small went to the piano’s

$20,000 restoration. In total, 45 individuals gave toward the piano, some through memorials in a deceased person’s name. Every dollar helped, said Susan Raines, Bowlus executive director. “Kendall Jay was at a program and wondered if $1 was too little,” Raines said. “‘Not

Thus was the beginning of Sparkles Cleaning, which now has added painting to its repertoire.

Brenda Clark directs her life decisions more by “guts than brains,” she said. Take for instance, her decision to move to Humboldt 14 years ago. “I just picked a spot on a map,” she said. At the time, she was a single mother in Kansas City and was looking for a more kid-friendly environment to raise her son, Andrew. Brenda used much the same method to starting her career. Though trained as a paralegal, Brenda could find no such job in the area. Undeterred, she went to area businesses to see if they were in need of a cleaning service. “There were very few people doing the job (cleaning) right, or not at all,” she said of her inspections.

Arrests prompt dispute


A recently repaired and refurbished piano that hadn’t been played in more than 50 years will be dedicated during a reception and recital at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center Friday evening. The piano, a 1905 Henry F. Miller manufactured in Boston, was the centerpiece in the parlor of Iola benefactor Thomas H. Bowlus, before his home was razed to make way for the fine arts center named after him. Bowlus, Iola banker and philanthropist, left money to build the center, as well as a $1 million trust for its maintenance. The center opened in 1954 and the piano was sent its way by relatives. With other pianos in better fettle, the Miller was put in storage. Over the years ivories fell from keys. The sound board, its melodic heart, was cracked. With the center’s 50th anniversary nearing, the idea of restoring the Bowlus piano to its former glory took hold.


at all,’ I told him.” In fact, his donation totaled $10. Jay, an eighth grader at Iola Middle School, will be one of those playing the piano in the Friday night concert. Burton Bowlus, 91, a nephew of Thomas Bowlus, also gave to the cause. See PIANO | Page A6


Brenda routinely cleans seven offices and one church. She also has two other employees that help out from time to time. The work is hard. It’s not unusual for Brenda to spend 60 to 80 hours a week cleaning. “It keeps me out of trouble,” Brenda said. “I don’t drink, smoke, do drugs, chase men or gamble. I’ve got to have something to do.” And cleaning is something that Brenda does very well. She said many people do not have the attention to detail that is required for thorough

cleaning, and there are many things people don’t know to do. “I disinfect the phones and keyboards, which is important, especially in winter,” she said. She said little things make the difference, like dusting the vents on computer towers. Brenda pointed out that she does not clean private residences, because her phone “would be ringing off the hook.” In addition to cleaning, Brenda spends a big chunk of her time painting as well. She

Knowledge trumps fear during severe weather

Brenda Clark

Mitch Sigg thinks when he and son John were arrested by Allen County officers the evening of Feb. 2, the arrests were not only unnecessary but also were done in an unnecessarily rough manner. Sheriff Bryan Murphy thinks what occurred was appropriate and justified. Mitch Sigg recounted his view of what occurred for the Register: John Sigg was driving and was stopped for a defective headlight on U.S. 54 near the Rock Creek bridge. His grandfather, also named John Sigg, called young Sigg at the time of the incident, and then contacted Mitch Sigg, who went to the scene. “They were pushing John, who had been handcuffed, to the ground, when I drove by,” Mitch Sigg said. He stopped and asked what the problem was and interpreted the responses as obnoxious, and responded with words of his own. “I wasn’t pleased,” he said. “The boy had a headlight out. Why didn’t they just tell him to go home and get it fixed.”

Severe weather season usually brings fear and anxiety. Local emergency crews say knowledge about how to be better prepared can help allay those fears. Representatives of the Allen County Emergency Management, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and the National Weather Service paired together Tuesday night for “Storm Fury on the Plains,” at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. The program, taught several years in a row, drew about 70 people. Chance Hayes, warning coordinator meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Wichita, said weather spotters “are our eyes in the field.” A weather spotter is a community member who during severe weather reports to local or national weather services information about current conditions. Hayes said that the majority of people get their weather information from “talking heads on television” and those “eyes in the field” help give an ac-

curate and timely weather report. “Teamwork plus communications equals trust,” Hayes said. “It helps convince the public the danger is real.” WHEN


severe weather conditions, people should call 1-800-367-5736 or Tweet at #KSWX. Reporters should always answer the three Ws of weather: What — is it hailing? Are there high winds? When — was it five minutes ago? Is it going on currently? And where — what is your location? Hayes said when describing a storm or tornado describe the way it looks, not how strong it is. “There is no way for you to know how strong it really is,” Hayes said. A tornado, for example, can either be a rope shape, a wedge shape or a regular tornado. If the tornado is long and thin it’s probably a rope tornado. If the top of the tornado is roughly the same width as the bottom then it is a wedge tornado. If it is a cone shape then that would be a reguSee STORM | Page A6

Obituaries Dorothy Hemphill

Dorothy Jane (Robb) Hemphill, 86, formerly of Humboldt, passed on to be with her heavenly family on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013, at Clare Bridge Senior Living in Wichita.

Dedication and Recital

Windsor Place…

The help you need to recover from illness, injury or surgery. “I had a broken ankle that required surgery at Shawnee Mission Medical Center last November. When I left the hospital, I wasn’t quite ready to go home. I chose to come to Windsor Place. Some of my family members had stayed here and I liked it best of all. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at how many of the staff and residents I already knew. That made me feel at home. I have enjoyed playing bingo and the church services. I’m also so glad they have the preschool in the building. Those kids are really something. My ankle is doing so much better and I’m looking forward to going home this weekend.” – Mae Aydelotte

H Clark Continued from A1

started painting professionally four years ago, but has been painting since she was a child. “If it doesn’t move, then I paint it,” she said. There is an art to painting buildings for a living, which comes very naturally to Brenda. “People are amazed that I don’t use tape when I am painting,” she said. She has a knack for keeping a steady hand around tight edges — a talent that comes very naturally to her. There are dangers to her job as well. She said she often times has to set up scaffolding by herself for

multi-story jobs. She is not afraid of heights, but recognizes the dangers of setting up and working on higher platforms. “The heights don’t scare me, it is the fall and the sudden stop that worries me,” she said with a laugh. “I have very good insurance.” BRENDA’S


as a local business owner has come at the risk of not “playing it safe” when it comes to big life decisions. She said it is important for her to go with her gut, and take chances. “So many people are content to exist, and not

try anything new,” Brenda said. Her philosophy for living has brought her to a life that she enjoys more than she ever could as a paralegal. “I’m more happy painting and cleaning that I ever was behind a desk,” she said. Whenever she has free time, Brenda, an animallover, creates “cat trees” that she sells to raise funds for Castaways (an animal shelter in Chanute), and Allen County Animal Rescue Facility in LaHarpe. She also builds steps and ramps for aging animals that need help getting to their

beds. One of her cat trees is in the ACARF cat room, and she has sold several of her creations for donation to the shelters. Brenda’s son, Andrew, lives in Lawrence, working for the Douglas County Sheriff ’s Department. She said he received his masters degree in public administration at the age of 22. “I’m really proud of him,” she said. Brenda, now 46, has no plan of slowing down any time soon. Her parents live in the country outside of Fredonia, where they raise cattle. Brenda herself has a “one-heifer herd”

and plans to learn more about raising cattle in the future — another possible business venture.

For Brenda, it seems going with her “guts instead of brains” philosophy has paid off.

to go home and get it fixed.” The young John Sigg later said he was told to sit on the ground after being handcuffed. That’s a matter or protocol, Murphy said. Initially, Mitch Sigg said the officers said the car’s registration was out of date and that John had no proof of insurance. The tag, he pointed out, had a February 2013 sticker on it and said all their dealer tags — he and his father, John, operate Sigg Motors — had insurance cards attached to the backs. Also, Sigg noted that according to Michael Fracul, in the Department of Revenue’s Division of Vehicles, having a dealer’s tag means liability insurance was in force, provided the driver had a valid license. Eventually, the registration and insurance issues were settled. Meanwhile, conversations became heated and officers deemed the Siggs were obstructing their efforts to the point they were arrested.

Mitch Sigg said he also was handcuffed and when put in a holding cell the cuffs, holding his hands behind his back, were left on. “By about midnight (the incident started at 7 p.m.) my hands were numb and I was taken to the hospital emergency room,” he said, where he was told the cuffs were cinched tight enough they had affected nerves in his wrists. Thursday afternoon Sigg said parts of his hands and the tops of his thumbs still were numb. He intends to act as his own attorney in the case and asked for a report concerning the incident from the county attorney’s office, which he said an attorney was entitled to during the discovery phase of a case. “They wouldn’t give it to me, just the front page” that has little information, Sigg said. “Also, I asked for a written denial, but didn’t get one.” SHERIFF


said arrests of the Siggs occurred when they be-

came confrontational and obstructive. When Mitch Sigg drove up, “the deputy didn’t know who he was and officers have to maintain control of any situation,” he said. “In today’s environment you don’t know what might happen, even with a traffic stop. Officers get shot, they get run over. “When Mitch arrived things started to deteriorate. Mitch was handcuffed (and eventually arrested) to maintain control.” Murphy pointed out that all that occurred at the scene of the traffic stop was recorded by cameras attached to officers’ headsets. All that occurs in the jail also is recorded. Mitch Sigg’s handcuffs remained on after he arrived at the jail and was put in the holding cell, Murphy added, “because he was loud and belligerent.” The sheriff confirmed that Sigg was examined by emergency medical personnel when he complained of his hands being numb and was taken to Allen County Hospital’s

H Storms lar tornado. Another key element is research. The more a person knows about a potential storm the better. Hayes said if a person sees a dark heavy storm in the distance, stop on the side of the road and wait it out. “You alter driving plans during winter weather, why not during a severe thunderstorm,” he said. Storm spotters need to regularly attend informational sessions and do their homework about different cloud and storm types. Know the difference between wall cloud, shelf cloud, microburst and just heavy rain, he said. If the point comes

where taking shelter is needed have the proper kits and plans ready. Hayes said one of the main injuries from a

natural disaster is during the aftermath when people forgot to pack shoes with them and get their feet sliced up. Some of the other must-have items in an emergency kit are a first aid kit, flashlight and extra batteries, three

days’ supply of food and water, cash and coins, whistle and blankets.

emergency room for further examination. He then was released on an own recognizance bond, as John Sigg had been earlier. “You don’t oppose an officer at a traffic stop,” Murphy observed. “The

officer has to have control and that’s what the deputy did by handcuffing and arresting the Siggs. “He had no idea who either was, didn’t know Mitch was John’s father when he drove up. “As it was, the insur-

ance issue, which is an arrestable offense, was later resolved. It was a miscommunication,” he said. “If conversations at the arrest scene had remained calm and civil, everything would have worked right there.”


If you’re a steak lover, then you probably know the answer to this question. If you aren’t, here are some tips on what kind of steak to purchase and how to cook it. At Bolling’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. The cut of steak you purchase and how you cook it is a matter of personal taste. Be prepared to pick and choose until you find the right steak for you.

In addition to replacing the soundboard, the piano has new keys, pads and wires and the cabinet was taken apart and refurbished to likenew condition. The process took about 10 months. “The mahogany baby grand was appraised several years ago at $5,000,” Raines said. “In today’s condition, it is appraised at $35,000.” The work was done at Hulme Enterprises, operated by Greg Hulme and son Conrad in

Prayer request a political ploy I can’t help it, but I feel more proud than humiliated that southeast Kansas was lumped in with Lawrence and Kansas City as a “dark spiritual area,” sorely in need of prayer. That was the opinion of Dave DePue, pastor to the Capitol Commission, a prayer group that meets regularly on statehouse grounds. Way to go SEK! DePue’s call to save our lost souls has gone viral. National media venues are using the story as tongue-in-cheek. And that’s what causes the humiliation to set in. Once again, Kansas is the butt of a joke, much like when evolution was under attack in our public schools. I’m assuming that because some of us don’t fall in line with the groupthink of the Brownback administration we are “in need of prayer” according to DePue. I bristle at the thought that someone claims to know my heart, much less that of an entire region. But it’s true. We stray the path. Southeast Kansans are known for their allegiance to good public schools and are assaulted by the Brownback administration’s refusal to fund them adequately. In his budget for 2014, the governor has pledged an insulting $14 per-pupil increase to schools. A study requested by the Legislature has suggested an additional $654 per student is needed to right this sinking ship. In three years, the legislature has slashed more than $500 million from public education. We also believe in fair taxing. Eliminating a state income tax shifts the respon-

Susan Lynn Register editor

sibility of funding the state budget onto sales and property taxes — an unfair burden to the middle class and lowincome. Kansas’s tax code is becoming known as Robin Hood in Reverse because the rich are the ones who will benefit on the backs of the poor. Another example is last year’s elimination of the Child and Dependent Care tax credit for working parents or those who are furthering their educations. It wasn’t a big break — a maximum cap of $6,000 — but for many young families it meant the difference between getting into the workforce and pursuing an education or being forced to drop out because child-care expenses were too great. Communities in Allen County, where the average income is $31,500, are especially hit hard by such measures. This is what people call the race to the bottom. In an effort to give tax cuts to the wealthy, the state slashes benefits to poor and middle-class families. The results will be felt immediately, but even more so in the future as greater portions of our populace are left behind. I HAPPEN to be a proponent of prayer. But something tells me this request was not done in good faith.

‘Boys of Summer’ at it again In southern climes, where warmer weather comes early, the “Boys of Summer” began baseball’s annual ritual of spring training this week. The grass is green, flowers bloom and each team, regardless of talent and previous circumstances, has a chance to be a winner. Optimism oozes from every clubhouse, although veterans, and those willing to accept reality, know it will evaporate for many clubs once the grind of a 162-game season begins. My first dose of major league baseball was when the Philadelphia Athletics moved to Kansas City in 1955. The KC A’s were my team, although that resulted in a lesson of long-suffering. Often the team was made up of Yankee retreads, but I’ll never forget 1958 when Bob Cerv, in the twilight of his career, hit 38 homeruns and was in a season-long

At Week’s End Bob Johnson

battle with Washington’s Roy Sievers, Boston’s Jackie Jensen and the Yanks’ Mickey Mantle — who won with 42 — for the slugging title. I saw my first game in 1957, with a group from Humboldt’s First Baptist. The A’s played in Municipal Stadium, with Brooklyn Avenue just outside the right field fence. When I walked up to the stadium, I was amazed at how large it was. I had never seen a structure of that size before. During the years I saw Mantle smack a homerun onto Brooklyn Avenue, mar-

veled at Ted Williams’ skills with the bat and cheered a legion of A’s. My favorite was Bud Daley, a pitcher. A lefthander who relied on a knuckleball, Daley won 16 games each in 1959 and 1960. He also was a pretty proficient hitter. In 1959 he batted .295 and drove in 13 runs. My allegiance switched to the Royals in 1969, after Charlie Finley took the A’s to California two years earlier. It was good to be a KC fan with the expansion team, particularly in the 1980s when several players, including George Brett, attained star status and the Royals won the World Series in 1985. Now, a new season is starting and the Royals, with an infusion of starting pitchers through winter transactions, appear on the cusp of regaining their winning habits. I can hardly wait.

Election oversight should be nonpartisan We’re almost two years away from the 2014 general election but Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach already has an opponent. Asserting that Kobach is “out of control,” Democrat Randy Rolston, a Lenexa businessman, immediately put

Bob Beatty Insight Kansas

$200,000 of his own money into his nascent campaign. Rolston said he would put a lot more of his money into the race and, with the help of donors, could foresee spending more than a $1 million. If Kobach matches that sort of fundraising — and outside groups decide they’ll plunk hundreds of thousands of dollars supporting one of the candidates — it not only could be the most expensive SOS race in Kansas history, but in U.S. history. During his tenure Kobach has talked about preserving the integrity of elections in Kansas, and as such he has helped pass legislation putting in place voter ID laws and a new law requiring proof of citizenship when registering to vote. Most recently he has asked the Legislature to give his office the power to prosecute voter fraud cases. No doubt these issues will be talked about over the next 20 months of the SOS campaign. However, if we are concerned about the integrity of Kansas elec-

tions, there is one big question that needs to be asked, and addressed, that in the end may matter much more than voter registration rules: Should Kansas have a partisan political figure be in charge of its elections in the first place? On the face of it, it is absurd to have a partisan party member running elections, as it creates an inherent conflict of interest. Kobach, for example, is the former chair of the Republican Party, and in 2012, while secretary of state, operated a political action committee that donated money to specific candidates running for office. In short, imagine the head referee of the next KU-North Carolina game being the former Tar Heel coach and having thousands of dollars bet on the North Carolina players to do well. Nobody would stand

Does this mitigate partisanship? Well, it certainly can, depending on the model. In Oklahoma, the largest political party gets two members of the three-member board; in New York, the board is truly bipartisan, as both major parties get two members of the four member board; Wisconsin is very interesting. There, in 2008, the state legislature (in what was dubbed a “rare moment of enlightenment”) created an election board in which the governor chooses former judges from a list selected by current state appeals court judges, who then must be confirmed by the state senate. In Wisconsin, judges cannot be affiliated with a political party, and to serve on the election board a judge must have served six years to be eligible. So, 12 years removed from partisan politics.

On the face of it, it is absurd to have a partisan party member running elections, as it creates an inherent conflict of interest. for it in basketball, and we should not put up with it in our elections. So what are the other options? One option would be to take away the election duties of the secretary of state office. The SOS would be in charge of filing, recording, and certification of all official and business documents in the state. The business of elections could then be run by a state board. This is how it is done in several states, including Oklahoma, New York, and Wisconsin.

The simplest solution might be the best: Keep an elected secretary of state but ban him or her from involvement with partisan political activities (no campaign donations, no attending state or national political conventions, etc.). Better yet, make the secretary of state unaffiliated with a party. Since 30 percent of all Kansans are registered unaffiliated, I doubt we would lack for qualified candidates, and the referee would not be cheering for a winner during the game.

Letter to the editor I was irritated (as usual) after seeing the anti-Catholic cartoon in the Iola Register on Wednesday. My church’s moral stance on issues is based upon Biblical principles and not the ever-changing nature of public opinion. The last I heard, the Bible has not changed since the Dark Ages either. I think I’ll take my cue on

what is moral from the hundreds, if not thousands, of Catholic priests and theologians that dedicate their lives to the study of God’s written word. This is a little better than developing moral character based upon the teachings of the Emerson and Susan Lynn School of Theology. Very proud Catholics, Larry and Kim Peterson

VICTORY! Fillies down Wellsville on Sr. Night By RICHARD LUKEN

Even with all the breaks going their way, Iola High’s Fillies weren’t going to relax a smidgen until the final buzzer sounded Friday. Far too many times this season, Iola was able to mount impressive comebacks, and on a few occasions take the lead, only to have the rug swiped away beneath them. “We’d panic,” Fillies coach Becky Carlson said. Not this time. In fact, “once we got the lead, we grew more confident,” Carlson said. Iola capped a stirring comefrom-behind 35-27 Senior Night victory by clamping down on defense, allowing only eight points after halftime, and a paltry two in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Emery Driskel’s basket with 5:52 remaining broke a 25-25 deadlock, part of the Fillies’ 16-2 run to close the game. Wellsville’s Mariah Kayhill

scored with about 3 minutes left in the third quarter to give the Eagles a 25-19 lead, before Iola closed the period with two Jo Lohman free throws and an Addie Haar bucket. Haar then scored again a minute into the fourth period to tie the score before Driskel’s tie-breaker about a minute later. Iola took advantage of Wellsville’s misses and turnovers.

McDonald earns state berth By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

PITTSBURG — Many things were left undecided in the first day of the Class 4A Regional Wrestling Tournament in Pittsburg, except for one thing — Stephen McDonald will compete in Salina for a state championship. McDonald, after a bye in the first round, faced off against Columbus High’s Bradley Vanhoose in the 220-pound division. He had control from the beginning with seven points in the first period, with VanHoose off of his feet several times from the get-go. The second period started the same, but a hard flip from his opponent apparently torqued McDonald’s recently

Wildcats pick up sixth straight victory PLEASANTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reached the point that five-point decisions have to be considered blowouts for Marmaton Valley Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boys. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 54-49 win over host Pleasanton marked the first game in four the Wildcats won by more than two points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were actually up 11, but we kind of slowed down a bit,â&#x20AC;? Marmaton Valley coach Tim

Stinnett said. Still, it was not enough to prevent Marmaton Valley from winning its sixth game in a row. Stinnett praised the work of Lucas Hamlin, who had 13 points and 13 rebounds in the winning cause. Cole Becker led the way with 19 points, and Chance Stevenson had 12. Nathan Smart delivered four points and five rebounds. Car-

los Gonzales and Ryan Smith scored three apiece. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played well, but I wish we wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kept our foot on the gas,â&#x20AC;? Stinnett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes I think they do it to stress me out.â&#x20AC;? Pleasanton won the junior varsity contest, 3533. Micheal Genn scored 15 for the Wildcats. In girls action, Pleasanton won 63-35.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They came out shooting well, and we struggled at the start,â&#x20AC;? Marmaton Valley girls coach Kent Houk said.

On defense, Hammond accumulated 355 tackles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; nearly nine stops a game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along with six interceptions and three fumble recoveries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked Fort Scott because the coaches work hard to get you to graduate,â&#x20AC;? said Hammond, who also sports a 4.0 grade-point average in high school. Hammond also is a standout basketball player for the Lancers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little difficult at first to pick football, but the decision has gotten easier,â&#x20AC;?

McNutt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like the best place to go.â&#x20AC;? McNutt will study physical education and continue focusing on near distance sprints at PSU. McNutt also has been a standout football and basketball player all four years of high school. WHILE


has made his decision on which college he will attend, there are still choices to be made. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Hammond was a standout performer at so many positions. He earned all-state honors on both offense and defense in both his senior and junior seasons, as well as taking home all-league honors since he entered Crestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doors as a freshman. Hammond said Fort Scott head coach Curtis Horton envisions him in an offensive role, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but my defensive coordinator (Keith Jordan) wants me to play defensive back.â&#x20AC;?

sion lead. Wellsville lost the ball out of bounds on its next possession, and Hannah Endicott responded with a baseline runner to push the Fillies up 31-25. Emily Newland provided Wellsville’s only points of the quarter with two free throws with just over a minute left, but Kyra Moore responded with two charities of her own to re-establish a six-point lead. Driskel snuffed the Eagles’ next possession with a steal, then Moore rebounded an Eagle miss to end the next possession. Moore then hit two free throws in the game’s final 33 seconds for the final margin. Iola led 5-2 after one quarter and 11-8 in the second before Wellsville responded with a 10-2 run, fueled mainly by Fillies turnovers. Erica McTaggart hit the second of two free throws to give the Eagles an 18-11 lead. Emily Ware responded with a jumper, then Emma Piazza hit two free throws to slice the lead to three. Wellsville took a 19-15 lead into halftime. Iola’s game-clinching run was keyed by ball control, Carlson said. “Once we get the ball down the floor and don’t throw the ball away, we’re pretty good,” Carlson said. “We’re able to get some good shots.” The game was especially gratifying, Carlson said, because it came in Iola’s final home game of the season. Ware, Reagan Ford, the injured Libby Shay and student manager Alyssa Zimmerman were honored during Senior Night activities. A raucous student section and energetic pep band added even more flavor.

The first win of the season by the Iola High Fillies drew a rousing cheer from the IHS faithful above. At right, Fillies head coach Becky Carlson gets a congratulatory hug afterward.

Schedule change Next week’s Iola High basketball games have been bumped up a day, from Friday to Thursday. The change will allow school administrators to attend both the basketball games and the Class 4A State Wrestling Tourna-

ment, which begins Friday. It also allows the basketball teams an additional day of practice before the substate playoffs begin Feb. 25, Iola athletic director Martin Bambick said. Substate pairings will be set Wednesday.

Driskel led the way with 10 points for Iola, followed by Endicott with five and Moore, Piazza, and Haar with four each. Erica McTaggart led Wellsville with 15 points, but left the game late because of a leg injury. She was the only Eagle player in double figures. Wellsville prevailed 36-29 in the junior var-

sity contest. Olivia Bannister scored eight points to pace the Fillies JV, followed by McKayli Cleaver with six, Shelby Reno with five, Cassie Delich and Taylor Sell with four apiece and Haar with two. Iola travels to Anderson County Tuesday.

left in the half gave the Mustangs the lead for the first time as part of an 11-2 run. Mason Coons scored with 6:18 left in the half to push the Iola on top 16-13. Iola’s lead was 1715 when Mann put the Eagles on top for good with a 3-pointer at the 4:35 mark of the second quarter. Wellsville’s lead bounced between one and five points for all of the third quarter and into the final period. For every Iola score, Wellsville usually had a quick response. “The guys played hard, no doubt about it,” Peeper said. “But we just can’t seem to take care of the little things, the details.” Friday’s game was Senior Night, as the final

home game of the year for the Mustangs. The starting lineup consisted solely of 12th-graders. Regular starters Latta, Adam Kauth and Powelson were on the bench. “I was pleased with our effort, and our seniors gave us good time out there,” Peeper said. “I couldn’t ask for any more out of them.” Ashmore led Iola with 14 points and three steals. Coons followed with seven points, while Powelson had six points and 10 rebounds. Kaden Macha and Tyler McIntosh had three rebounds apiece. Latta had a steal and three assists. Latta and Ashmore each drew charges. Wellsville also prevailed in the junior varsity matchup, 56-41. Jesse Zimmerman paced

the Mustang JV with 12 points, followed by Fryendz Wallace with six, Kohl Endicott, Travis Hermstein and Shane Walden with five each, Adam Peterson with four and Alex Bauer and Macha with two each. In C team action, Iola prevailed 47-35. Peterson scored 10 and Endicott eight. Iola travels to Anderson County Tuesday.

H Mustangs Continued from B1

The Mustangs’ Tyler Powelson muscled in a shot and drew a foul, but was unable to hit a free throw that would have cut a 39-34 Eagle lead to two points. The Eagles’ ensuing possession ended with a three-point play by Cole Silsby, pushing Wellsville up by six, 42-36. “It seemed like we struggled trying to keep it at a one-possession game,” Peeper said. “Suddenly, that one-possession game, suddenly became a two-possession game, then three. And it just built up from there.” It didn’t help Iola’s cause that Wellsville was nearly spotless from the free throw line, draining 24 of 26 charities. “They’re a good team

— a solid team all the way around,” Peeper said. “We’re a struggling team trying to find a way back to the positive side. They find ways to make it happen, while we’re still searching.” Wellsville ended the game on a 16-2 run, keyed by junior standout Carter Mann, who scored six of his eight fourth-quarter points at the free throw line. Mann also played a role in Wellsville’s hot start. He drained two 3-pointers in the first 2 1/2 minutes of the contest as Wellsville raced to an 8-2 lead. But Iola’s Levi Ashmore had some tricks of his own. He hit two treys a minute apart as the Mustangs cut into the lead. Trent Latta’s steal and layup with 7:13

sting, but my arm feels good.” He bounced back after the break to cap a 18-5 decision for the win. In the semi-final matchup, McDonald hit the mat hard against Chanute’s Gage Clark — and there was no sign of an injured shoulder. He had a near pin the in the beginning of the first period, and several other moves that had Clark on the mat for the majority of the first two periods. McDonald garnered six total points before he flipped Clark on a powerful move at the beginning of the third. Clark struggled for several seconds before his back hit the floor, and the referee ended the match. The win secures a state berth for McDonald in the state tournament in Salina next Friday and Saturday. But first, he faces off against Pittsburg’s Gershom Avalos for the regional championship today. “There were hard matches today,” McDonald said. “I just had to relax and get physical, that’s what coach (Brad Carson) always tells us.” Carson said he has high expectations for McDonald in the state tournament. “In my mind, he can be a state champion, he has got the speed and the explosiveness,” Carson said. McDonald has high expectations for himself as well. “My goal is to become the first state wrestling champ at Iola High School,” McDonald said. AS FOR THE rest of the Mustangs, their fate is yet to be decided. All remain alive. Andrew Garber and Bryce Misenhelter were the only wrestlers with first-round matches, the rest had byes. Garber opened the tournament with a win over Ty Gatton from Labette County in the 170-pound division. He had a pin in the second round, after a close first against his opponent. Misenhelter had a quick victory over Louisburg’s Brenton Wrigley in the 182-pound division with a pin in the first round with 36 seconds remaining. Then came the second-round action. Both Misenhelter and Trey Colborn had solid victories over their opponent. Misenhelter, in the 182-pound match against Chanute’s Josh Smeed, started out from behind. Smeed had two solid reversals on Misenhelter for four points. A slow second round, with one point from Misenhelter, held the score at 4-1. In the third, Misenhelter came back with a burst of energy. He garnered a quick two points from dropping Smeed to the mat. The score became

irrelevant when Misenhelter made a surprising pin before the third round came to a finish. As for Colborn, a slow first round had both he and Fort Scott’s Brendon Blackburn scoreless in the 285-pound division. However, a quick move from Colborn had his opponent’s shoulders on the mat in the blink of an eye, midway through the second period. Garber suffered a tough loss in the second round, against Field Kindley’s Cory Turner, which pushed Garber into the second round of the consolation bracket. Cody Conner lost to Anderson County’s Stephen Kaufman in the 145-pound division by pin in the second round. Zeph Larney lost by pin in the first to Frontenac’s Trace Baldwin and Brice Aiello lost by pin 24 seconds into the first round — courtesy of Ethin VanAnne, from Chanute. THIRD-ROUND action for the Mustangs created a tougher road to follow for Colborn and Misenhelter. Misenhelter had a tough match against Jake Bradley of Prairie View. Bradley had control for the majority of the match, with five points in the first two rounds. But, Misenhelter wasn’t ready to roll over and die. A quick four points put him back in the match. Another reversal from Bradley in the third put the lead out of reach, with a 7-4 victory. Colborn faced off against Joe Pomatto from Paola, and things did not go as well. Pomatto quickly gained the upper hand. He had two points off of a flip on Colborn in the first round. He added two more late in a 4-0 win. CARSON said he was positive about his team’s performance overall for the first day of the tournament. No wrestlers were eliminated . “My expectations were to advance everyone to the second round, and we did that,” Carson said. “Our draws worked out perfectly.” He said both Misenhelter and Colborn are in positions to advance to the state tournament — especially since both lost in close decisions. They only need one win in today’s matches to qualify for a berth. “Both of those guys have very winnable matches,” he said. As for those who lost matches in the second round, their work will be cut out for them today in Pittsburg. The doubleelimination requires that Aiello, Conner, Larney and Garber must win three consecutive matches to qualify for a state berth.

Call to pray for Kansasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;darkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; areas creates stir TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Christian group that sought prayers for â&#x20AC;&#x153;dark spiritual areasâ&#x20AC;? of Kansas said the communities were chosen because of their economic problems and not because of their perceived political leanings. But representatives of two of the regions mentioned in a Feb. 7 letter from The Capitol Commission suggested their areas were chosen because they were Democratic in a state that is largely conservative Republican. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Democrat from Lawrence, called the letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly offensiveâ&#x20AC;? and defended Lawrence as a community with deep spiritual roots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you think it a coincidence that all of these â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;darkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; areas are represented by Democrats in the Kansas Legislature?â&#x20AC;? Davis asked. The letter sent to some churches and prayer groups along with legislators, other officials and individuals on an email list asked for prayers for north Johnson County, Lawrence, Kansas City, Kan., and southeast Kansas, as well as the governor, his staff, legislative leaders and the media, The Kansas City Star reported Wednesday. Dave DePue, the Capitol Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state director, apologized if the wording of the letter offended anyone but said the group is praying only for the regionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; economies, not for a change in politics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it was weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to be praying for northeast Kansas and Topeka. It has nothing to do with politics,â&#x20AC;? DePue told The Wichita Eagle. But Rep. Kathy Wolf Moore, D-Kansas City, called the comments about Kansas City, Kan., â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfortunateâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;unbelievable.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to Wyandotte County lately,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is one of the brightest spots in the state.â&#x20AC;? The Capitol Commission is a nonprofit group based in Raleigh, N.C., with ministries in 21 states. State directors teach weekly Bible studies for legislators, lobbyists and staff members, and the studies are distributed to each legislative office, emailed and made available throughout the capital, according to the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website.

Crest boys romp at Jayhawk-Linn MOUND CITY — Crest High’s boys got back on track Thursday with a dominating road win. The Lancers, who looked anything but competitive two nights earlier in a loss to Lebo, took

out their frustrations against host JayhawkLinn, with a 52-23 win. “We attacked the basket tonight and created a lot of good opportunities offensively,” Lancer coach Travis Hermreck

said. “I was pleased with our effort in comparison to Tuesday.” The Lancers took control with a 19-2 secondquarter run to open up what had been a 14-8 lead. The Crest margin

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers



A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves

Daytona Beach News-Journal file photo

Milka and ARCA go together like Danica and NASCAR. Kinda-sorta.

What is the best gift for a race fan on Valentine’s Day?

GODSPEAK: I know Dale Earnhardt Jr. has a line of potato chips, but does he do chocolates? He should. KEN’S CALL: I would suggest “his and hers” restrictor plates — in the shape of hearts, of course.

‘Hot tempered and arrogant’ According to Forbes magazine, which annually ranks America’s 10 most disliked athletes, Kurt Busch has again held serve in the bad-boy poll. Topping the list of athletes who people love to hate are Notre Dame football player Manti Te’o and cyclist Lance Armstrong. But holding steady down there at No. 8 is Busch, who had a fan approval rating of just 27 percent. The feedback from sports fans? Busch was “hot tempered and arrogant” and “feuded with teammates and reporters alike.”

Sliding down the beach

Glen Wood made the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2012 and was joined by his brother, Leonard, last week. Together, they formed Wood Brothers Racing, an organization that has been around since 1953. The team, historically a single-car operation, has struggled since the onslaught of multicar, corporate-driven behemoths. But the Wood Brothers got a huge measure of satisfaction after winning the 2011 Daytona 500. Leonard Wood’s favorite story from the early days of the team — Glen was the driver and Leonard the mechanic — was during a private test session on the Daytona Beach & Road Course in 1956. Leonard wanted to check engine function at speed and rode shotgun with Glen at the wheel. During the run on

The Daytona schedule begins with an ARCA practice Thursday. Why does this excite me?

GODSPEAK: It’s either the roar of power-restricted V-8 engines or, seeing Milka Duno walking around in her fire suit. KEN’S CALL: You’re a closet Frank Kimmel fan, or you’re aware that the first NASCAR practice is just a day away.

How would it look in Budweiser colors? You might find out.

OK, what’s the deal with the No. 3 car?

When Dale Earnhardt died 12 years ago (Wow, 12 years ago?), in the aftermath, it appeared it might be a long time before we saw a 3 on the side of a Cup car again. And when we did, it’d likely be a special circumstance. Well, it’s been a long time.

the beach, Glen drifted into the water, and the No. 21 Ford went into a power slide. “This wave flowed in and we had to hit it because Glen couldn’t stop,” Leonard said. “He goes right through this water, and it just picked up the car and set it sideways. “I’m looking out the side glass and thinking, ‘We’re gonna wreck for sure.’ But the car turned back the other way, and Glen hit the throttle and just pulled that thing out as straight as an arrow, and I’ve never been so happy in all my life.”

And do we have a special circumstance?

Yep, money is our guess. Richard Childress, who still “owns” the number, has a grandson (Austin Dillon) who will be a Cup driver sooner than later. Richard also has a current driver (Kevin Harvick) who’s leaving after this season, and Richard has a sponsor (Budweiser), who may or may not leave with Kevin. If AnheuserBusch’s Boys in Marketing are on the fence about going with Childress or Harvick, the thought of adorning the new No. 3 might be enough to keep them with RCR. Business is business.

Elliott gets the message

Bill Elliott, also known as “Awesome Bill from Dawsonville,” has finally gotten the message. The 57-yearold Elliott said he is done racing in the Sprint Cup Series. One reason may be that every time he makes a Cup start, he takes himself out of Hall of Fame consideration. According to NASCAR Hall of Fame eligibility requirements, a driver has to be out of the sport for three years before his name can appear on the ballot. Elliott made two starts in 2012, so he’s on the clock for the 2016 class. Rusty Wallace was part of the 2013 class after making his last start in 2005. Elliott, the 1988 champ, and Wallace, who won the title in ’89, have similar career stats. Now somebody needs to have “the talk” with two-time NASCAR champ Terry Labonte, 56, who is entered in the Feb. 24 Daytona 500.

Is it time to buy Terry Labonte some golf clubs?

Or a fishing pole. Metal detector. Knitting needles. ANYTHING! The man needs a hobby. The two-time champ, who outlasted two generations of Marlins (Coo Coo and Sterling), Pettys (Richard and Kyle) and even raced against Buddy Arrington, Connie Saylor and Janet Guthrie, has been hired again by FAS Lane Racing to enter the Daytona 500. It would be Terry’s 61st start at Daytona. You probably can’t find anyone with a bad word to say about Terry Labonte, but honestly, we can’t miss you if you won’t stay away.

Baldwin Jr.

Bruton Smith vs. Tommy Baldwin Jr.: The veteran track owner said start-and-park Cup teams were a joke. Baldwin, who owns two teams, took offense at the comments. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “This is a classic David and Goliath tale, only the term slingshot has a different meaning.”

Pablo Montoya FIRST ONE OUT: Joey Logano DON’T BE SURPRISED IF: Earnhardt is a bit timid at the finish because of the wreck he caused during January’s Preseason Thunder test.
