Moran plans to add swing set for park By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

MORAN — Moran council members agreed to add playground equipment to the city park when they met Monday evening, but delayed signing an agreement with LaHarpe Communications for use of its water tower for an Internet relay antenna. Council members mulled buying a swing set and another piece for the playground on which children could climb, but backed off to just the swing set when City Clerk Lori Evans pointed out the Park Department fund had $9,200 remaining in its budget. It was noted that mowing and other maintenance would require part of what was available.

Councilman Jim Mueller said the two pieces of equipment would cost more than $7,000 and when ground cover, a necessity under rules governing public playground safety, entered the mix, cost likely would top $9,000. That led council members to propose funding within their 2015 budget for additions to the playground. “It would be good to add some each year,” Mueller said. Harry Lee, owner of LaHarpe Communications, handed council members a lease agreement to consider for the water tower antenna. Following a 15-minute executive session to discuss the contract, the deci-

Aguirre to perform Thursday night By KAYLA BANZET The Iola Register

Hit the lights and cue the music. Sabra Aguirre will perform at the Iola Community Theatre as part of the One Night Stand Series. The show starts at 7 p.m., Thursday and is free to the public. Aguirre, 23, has always had a passion for performing. The Yates Center native had her first intro to the stage in church when she was four.

Later on she began taking piano and vocal lessons. Her mother Pam, would bring Aguirre to Iola to participate in the Children’s Summer Theatre Workshop at the Iola Community Theatre. The pair also work together at Class Act Salon in Iola. This is Aguirre’s first year on the Iola Community Theatre board of directors. “I met a lot of great people through the theater,” Aguirre said. “I’ve always been

involved with it in some way.” Although the show is a free will donation, Aguirre will give half of her donations to the Power Up Iola organization. “I wanted to be involved with the organization and help out,” she said. “Everyone needs help once in awhile.” The show will also feature Jared Ellis, pastor at Fellowship Regional Church in Iola.

Shopaholics are sure to shine with satisfaction with two city-wide garage sales this Saturday. Shelia Lampe, executive director of the Iola Area Chamber of Commerce, said about 18 families have registered so far, with a few more calls and walk-in inquiries pending. Registration ends at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, so they anticipate a lot more people to sign up, she said. Among those who have registered so far, it looks like Cedarbrook Estates is going to have a big sale, and the library at Allen Community College will be participating for the first time with a fundraiser book sale. “We’ve got a lot of older fiction books and we’re ready to get some new stuff,” said Sandy Moore, library director at ACC. “The city-wide garage sale seemed like the best time to do that.” Moore said the books being sold are primarily fiction for adults and children. They’ll also have discounts for people who buy a lot of books. “The more you buy, the more you save,” she said.

For those who want to go the extra mile, Humboldt is also holding their city-wide garage sale. Judy Middendorf, volunteer organizer and member of Chapter AM P.E.O., said they have 23 registered for the event so far. Two have opted to hold their sales on Friday, but the bulk of merchants will be showing their wares on Saturday. Everything from furniture to scrapbooking material will be available to browse or buy. “There’s some of everything. It’s a good variety of things being sold,” Middendorf said. In addition to searching for odds and ends, shoppers in Humboldt can check out a bake sale at 917 Leavenworth or buy barbecue for lunch at 105 S. 9th St. and enjoy it in the park. Lampe said there’s usually someone selling food during the city-wide sale in Iola, but so far they have not registered for this year’s event. However, many people wait until closer to deadline to register, she said. For more information or to register for the Iola city-wide garage sale, call 620-365-5252. For Humboldt, call 620-4732666.

Kansas governor decries EPA carbon emissions rule By JOHN HANNA Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback declared Monday that a new federal rule for cutting carbon emissions is a “war against middle America,” only days after his adminis-

tration complicated potential efforts to comply by signing off on a new, $2.8 billion coal-fired power plant. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s regulation addresses power plant emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases blamed for climate change. The 645-page

Quote of the day Vol. 116, No. 153

rule sets targets for states, giving them some flexibility for meeting them, and the EPA said that by 2030, Kansas would have to cut emissions from power plants from 2012 levels by 23 percent. The White House said the rule is designed to fight environmental and public health

problems associated with global warming, but Brownback, other state officials and representatives of major Kansas utilities worried that it will lead to higher energy costs, damaging the economy. Coal-fired plants provide about 63 percent of the state’s electricity.

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” — Socrates, philosopher 75 Cents

The EPA’s announcement of the rule Monday came only three days after Brownback’s secretary of health and environment gave the go-ahead for the new coalfired power plant proposed by Hays-based Sunflower Electric Power Corp. for See EPA | Page A6

KanCare inspector inexperienced

Wichita VA kept secret list

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A former lawmaker appointed to identify fraud in Kansas’ privatized Medicaid system has a background that includes a business bankruptcy and a DUI conviction. Phil Hermanson, a Republican who resigned from the House in 2013 after 2½ terms, started the $77,000-a-year position as inspector general for the $3 billion-a year KanCare health care network in late April. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment, which named Hermanson to the job, did not announce his appointment, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Hermanson, 49, also doesn’t have a college degree or career experience in insurance, accounting or health care fields applicable to examining the conduct of clients and service providers interacting with three insurance companies awarded Medicaid contracts by Gov. Sam

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The director of the Robert J. Dole Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Wichita acknowledges the hospital had a secret waiting list of patients that endangered some veterans. Director Francisco Vazquez sent a fax last Friday to Senators Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran acknowledging that nine veterans waited more than 90 days for appointments with a primary care doctor at the Wichita hospital. The Wichita Eagle reports that Roberts says those on the waiting list were patients who had been discharged from the hospital and were supposed to receive ongoing primary care while recovering at home. The fax said the U.S. Office of Inspector General found 10 secret lists in its Midwest network. Two of those lists put veterans at risk, including the one in Wichita. He said he’s also

Brownback’s administration. Hermanson said his preparation for the inspector general’s job came from time in the U.S. Navy and private business, as well as five years in the House, including service on the chamber’s health committee. He and his wife declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 1998 amid closure of their print company, Aeroscreen. “Like many other small businesses, it didn’t work in the end. It was a challenge I have learned a lot from,” he said. He won election to the House in 2008. In November 2009, Hermanson rear-ended a car at a red light in Wichita, injuring two women in the other vehicle. He reportedly blamed his faulty driving on prescription medicine taken for an injury. His attorney said in court that the medication was for high blood pressure. Hermanson pleaded

no contest in 2010 to a charge of driving under the influence of prescription drugs and was sentenced to probation. “Everyone makes mistakes, and I have certainly learned from my mistakes. I continue to move forward,” Hermanson said. The Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission also fined Hermanson’s campaign treasurer $500 in 2012 for a case involving $3,700 in questionable transactions during his 2010 reelection campaign. “As I stated at the time,” he said, “I regret the mistake and have learned from it. I promptly paid all fines levied against me in that ruling.” Rep. David Crum, an Augusta Republican who chairs the joint House-Senate oversight committee on KanCare, endorsed Hermanson as inspector general, but said it would be be “important to follow Phil’s performance closely.”

sending a synopsis of his meeting to the VA Office of Inspector General “so they know what’s going on.” The fax said that the Office of Inspector General had found nine veterans in Wichita who had waited more than 90 days for treatment. But the larger issue was that the inspector general found an unauthorized secret waiting list for treatment that “placed veterans at risk.” Overall, the inspector general’s office found 10 secret lists in the VA’s Heartland Network, which includes Kansas, Missouri and parts of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Arkansas. Of those 10 lists, two were found to have actually placed veterans at risk, including the one in Wichita, Vazquez’s fax said. The fax from the Dole hospital indicated that 96 veterans in the Heartland Network area had faced waits of

90 days plus, including: Kansas City, 12 veterans; Eastern Kansas (Topeka and Leavenworth), eight; St. Louis, 26; Columbia, Mo., 19; Poplar Bluff, Mo., 14; and Marion, Ill./Evansville, Ind., eight. In the cases where the secret lists didn’t put patients at risk, staffers were educated about “more appropriate techniques.” Wichita “terminated” the list and corrected gaps in patient access, the fax said. On Monday, Roberts said on a system-wide basis there are apparently two key causes why secret waiting lists were compiled – an obsolete computer system for scheduling appointments and, in some cases, performance bonuses tied to scheduling goals that couldn’t be met. “There’s a real disincentive to report it accurately,” Roberts said. “That’s what happened in Arizona.”

Colon cancer screening said to help even in advanced years By LAURAN NEERGAARD

The American Cancer Society recently calculated that over the past decade, new cases of colon cancer dropped significantly among middle-aged and older adults, thanks largely to increasing use of colonoscopies that allow removal of precancerous growths before tumors have time to form. Some things to know about the latest research on colon cancer screening.

AP Medical Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — How old is too old for a colonoscopy? A surprising number of people older than 75 haven’t ever been screened for colon cancer — and researchers reported Monday that it’s not too late for them to get caught up. Some may even consider screening into their 80s. Colon cancer screening is powerful, credited not only with sav-

tancy for an 80-year-old is eight to 10 years. But the guidelines don’t address the 23 percent of Americans over 75 who somehow missed out on screenings when they were a bit younger, before a colon check in your 50s and 60s had become the norm. Monday’s study examines if it’s worth starting screening so late, when most people already have at least a few other health problems, such as heart disease, that could affect whether detecting an early-stage colon cancer prolongs life.

Researchers at Erasmus University in the Netherlands and New York’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center used computer modeling to compare the potential effects of different colon checks on 10 million previously unscreened people ages 76 to 90. Someone who’s very healthy should consider some form of screening up to age 86 — but even a person with severe health problems could benefit from a first-time check up to age 80, the team reported in Annals of Internal Medicine. In the healthiest patients, a colonoscopy was the most effective choice up to age 83, while a stool test was the better choice for 85- and 86-year-olds, the researchers found. The results are a bit surprising, said Dr. Richard C. Wender, the American Cancer Society’s chief of cancer control. “Our sense was, if we’re going to screen beyond age 75, it should only be in very healthy people,” said Wender, who wasn’t part of the new study. “This model I think will help us give clearer advice to the public.”

ciety estimates. About 50,000 colon cancer patients will die. Upper age limits aside, public health officials say not enough of the 50-and-older crowd get potentially life-saving checks. The cancer society’s new campaign aims for a screening rate of 80 percent, up from two-thirds, by 2018. “If you’re polyp-free at 70, we have so dramatically reduced your likelihood of a death from colon cancer, you probably don’t need to ever think about it again,” Wender said.


With a colonoscopy, doctors use a long flexible tube to examine the colon and remove any polyps. While only needed once a decade, it can be uncomfortable and is the priciest option. Studies show a home stool test done every year can be equally effective. (A third choice, sigmoidoscopy, uses a tube to examine the lower colon but isn’t common in the U.S.) In the new study, stool testing was a better value for the oldest patients because it targets larger polyps “that have a shorter period of time before they become a real threat,” Wender explained. But individual choice matters: “There’s a test out there for everybody,” he said.

Strong storms expected ST. LOUIS (AP) — It has been a fairly quiet tornado season so far this spring but that could change today in five Midwestern states, where the National Weather Service predicts a heightened risk of severe storms that could produce strong twisters. Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa and Illinois are at greater risk of severe storms with hail, high winds and possibly tornadoes. The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma said the threatened tornadoes could be strong. Greg Carvin, lead forecaster for the Storm Prediction Center, said numerous thunderstorms

will be fueled by warm, moist air in the upper Midwest. “It’ll be a busy day,” Carvin said. “There will be a lot of intense thunderstorm activity.” Carvin said the system should move quickly, which should limit the amount of rain falling in any given area, though flash flooding is still a possibility. The storms are expected to start during the day in Nebraska and Kansas and spread east through tonight and into Wednesday morning. “Basically the Corn Belt looks to be at the greatest risk,” Carvin said. Parts of the same states saw severe weather over the weekend.

We all scream for homemade ice cream Homemade low-fat With summer almost upon us, you may be having thoughts of the cool, creamy pleasures of ice cream. And if you like homemade ice cream, there’s no better time to make it than on a hot summer day. Since ice cream can add both sugar and fat to the diet, enjoy it in moderation. Homemade ice cream is made by churning it in an electric or manual ice cream maker, but it can also be made by putting the mixture into a small, clean coffee can and “nesting” it into a larger coffee can; packing the ice and salt around the smaller can and rolling the sealed cans back and forth. You can also use the same concept by using zipper-style freezer bags and gently shaking the bags to freeze the ice cream. Shaking, rolling, or churning while the ice

Kathy McEwan Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences

cream mixture freezes is important to the finished product because it adds air into the mixture, making the ice cream smooth and increasing its final volume. Just remember, once you start shaking, rolling or churning, don’t stop. If you stop or take a break, large ice crystals begin to form, producing a grainy texture. The constant motion also helps to distribute the flavorings and brings the unfrozen portions of the mixture to the surface where it can freeze. To help an ice cream mixture freeze, the container holding the mixture is surrounded with ice and salt. If you use

too much salt, the mixture freezes too quickly and is not smooth. If you use too little salt, the ice cream might not freeze at all. Unless the recipe says otherwise, use one-half cup salt to 4 cups crushed ice. Table salt may be substituted for coarse rock salt when using the can or bag method. Rock salt works better with an ice cream maker. Food safety is an issue with homemade ice cream, so take care when preparing and storing it. If you choose a recipe that calls for eggs or egg yolks, you will need to heat the ice cream mixture to a temperature of at least 160 degrees (but do not boil it), using a food thermometer to monitor the temperature. Heat destroys any potentially harmful bacteria, such as salmonella, and will make the ice cream safe to eat.

Another safe choice is to use pasteurized eggs in a recipe that calls for raw eggs. Commercial pasteurization destroys salmonella bacteria, but does not cook the eggs or affect their color, flavor or nutritional value. Look in the egg section or frozen food section of the grocery store for either liquid or whole pasteurized eggs. Ice cream recipes that use no eggs, such as the one accompanying this column, also are safe and delicious choices when making homemade ice cream. Homemade ice cream does not store as well as store-bought ice cream. For best quality, transfer any leftovers into an air-tight plastic container. Store it in the freezer for no more than one week. If the texture gets too grainy, let it soften, then beat it before serving.

Ag. education is vital for communities Can you count the ways agriculture touches your life? When you wake up in the morning, you are lying on cotton sheets. You swing your feet onto the floor either made of wood, a rug made of wool or flooring made from linseed or soybean soil. The soap in the shower contains tallow (a by-product of the beef industry) and toothpaste has glycerin. The towel you dry off with and the jeans and t-shirt you put on are made from cotton. You have already used dozens of agricultural products, and you haven’t even started eating!

Locally, 4-H and FFA members along with community college agriculture students are educating our youth through various initiatives like Day at the Farm and Earth Day. They cooperate with other organizations such as Farm Bureau, Extension agencies, conservation districts and the Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks to demonstrate how agriculture and livestock are important to our everyday lives. We are fortunate to live in communities where folks still care about agriculture and a rural lifestyle. With a growing population and a demand to feed 9 billion people by

2050, the agriculture industry needs talented, driven and passionate youth willing to make a commitment. Many will not have the production background I was privileged to experience while growing up. Hands-on learning is critical to developing the skills necessary to feed the world. Make no mistake, there is tremendous opportunity for careers in agriculture and they don’t always involve driving a tractor. Examples include banking, energy, food science, education, research and engineering. I hope you will continue to support those organizations who promote and support agricultural endeavors in our communities.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

U.S. upholds military commitment by saving Sgt. Bergdahl U.S. officials moved quickly Saturday in what they assessed was a small window of time to retrieve U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from his Afghan captors. For five years Sgt. Bergdahl was held as a prisoner of war by Taliban forces. His release in Qatar was negotiated between U.S. forces and the Taliban. Qatari officials served as a gobetween in the dialogue. In exchange for Bergdahl’s release, five prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, the U.S. prison in Cuba, were released. The five men were former Taliban insurgents, now all in their mid- to late 40s. After more than 10 years in confinement they are of no intelligence value to the U.S. or our enemies. Critics of the prisoner swap say the negotiations give the Taliban undue legitimacy and in no time the insurgents will be back waging war against the “evil empire.” Republican members of Congress are also upset they were not given the opportunity to approve the release of the prisoners held at Gitmo. Under the arrangements of the swap, the five men are to remain under super-

vision for one year in the politically neutral country of Qatar. On the other side of the argument, the Obama administration said it believed Sgt. Bergdahl’s health was in jeopardy and time was of essence. Critics also maintain the swap will encourage other terrorist organizations to take U.S. citizens as hostages, knowing the U.S. will negotiate. Bergdahl was not a hostage, but a prisoner of war — the lone U.S. soldier being held captive — whose release the U.S. felt honorbound to secure, despite questions of the circumstances of his capture, including the accusation he had deserted his base. The U.S. government holds it as a sacred vow to protect its men and women in uniform. Along with that comes an ironclad commitment to bring them home. That assurance is critical to every soldier and their families. Soon enough, we’ll know the circumstance of Sgt. Bergdahl’s capture. But first and foremost, he is a U.S. soldier who has endured five years of captivity, and for his safe return we are grateful. — Susan Lynn

Quotations in the News The Associated Press

“But most of all, I’m proud of how much you wanted to help the Afghan people, and what you were willing to do to go to that length,” — Bob Bergdahl, father of an American soldier, Sgt.

Bowe Bergdahl, who was released from captivity in Afghanistan, in a news conference in Boise.

Measles uptick cause for alarm Even when there are significant gains against infectious diseases, there can be reversals. In 2000, measles was considered all but eliminated in the United States. For a while, there were only about 60 cases a year, mostly brought in from overseas. Now, the number of cases and outbreaks in the United States is rising again. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that there have already been more cases this year, 288, than in any full year this century. Measles is a highly infectious respiratory disease caused by a virus that affects young children, with fever, runny nose, cough and a distinctive rash. Infrequently, it leads to more serious complications. There have been no deaths in the United States for a while, but in 2012 measles caused an estimated 122,000 deaths worldwide. That’s far fewer than in the past, thanks to a global campaign to vaccinate more than a billion children in high-risk countries. In the United States, a vigorous effort at immunization in recent years brought measles almost to a standstill. After an epidemic from 1989

The vanishing cry of ‘repeal it’

It was supposed to be so easy this election year for Republican congressional candidates. All they would have to do was shout “repeal Obamacare!” and make a crack about government doctors and broken websites, and they could coast into office on a wave of public fury. The failure of the Affordable Care Act was simply assumed. But it has not quite worked out that way. The government website was fixed, and 8.1 million people managed to sign up for insurance through the exchanges. An additional 4.8 million people received coverage through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. Three million people under the age of 26 were covered by their parents’ plans. Though the law itself has never been widely popular, most people say they like its component parts, and a large majority now says it wants the law improved rather than repealed. That sentiment conflicts with the Republican playbook, which party leaders are suddenly trying to rewrite. The result has been an incoherent mishmash of positions, as candidates try to straddle a widening gap between blind hatred of health reform and the public’s growing recognition that much of it is working. Sometimes the dissonance reaches nearly comic levels. The Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, recently won his party’s primary for his Kentucky Senate seat in part by

Though the law itself has never been widely popular, most people say they like its component parts, and a large majority now says it wants the law improved rather than repealed. saying he wanted to repeal the health law “root and branch.” Last week, though, he was asked what repeal would mean for the 413,000 people who had signed up for insurance under Kynect, Kentucky’s state-run exchange. “I think that’s unconnected to my comments about the overall question,” he said. Mr. McConnell knows full well, of course, that the popular Kynect program was created by the Affordable Care Act and could not exist without it, but he is hoping to fool his constituents into believing the health care access they like has nothing to do with the law he has fought against for so long or with President Obama. His campaign even suggested he would allow many of the 300,000 Kentuckians who signed up for Medicaid — solely because of the law’s expansion — to stay covered after repeal, which makes about as much sense as his previous statement. Many other Republican candidates have also switched from brimstone to mush on the issue, no longer claiming they will repeal the law but instead will “replace” it or “fix” it in some unspecified way that could not possibly work. An example is an ad from the United

States Chamber of Commerce in support of Richard Tisei, a Republican running for a Massachusetts congressional seat, which promises that he would work in a “bipartisan manner to fix health care the right way.” And just what is that right way? “He wants to instill freemarket solutions,” the ad says, “end the job-killing tax on medical devices and curb lawsuit abuse to bring down the cost of care.” None of which has anything to do with bringing care to the uninsured, or those with pre-existing conditions. Scott Brown, who failed to sell this kind of nonsense in the Senate race in Massachusetts in 2012, is now peddling it in New Hampshire, where he is running for the Senate by saying the health law is “hurting families.” But not his family, apparently; in 2012, he admitted to keeping his daughter, then 23, on his policy, thanks to the law. The good news is that some Democratic candidates, sensing the same change in the weather, are beginning to campaign on the law’s benefits. Improving access to health care was the right thing for the country, and supporting it may turn out to be good politics, too. — The New York Times

An outbreak in Ohio has reached 68 cases, apparently sparked by Amish missionaries, unvaccinated, who had visited the Philippines. to 1991 resulted in 55,000 cases and more than 100 deaths, largely because of lack of immunization among poor and uninsured children, a federal program approved in 1994, Vaccines for Children, resulted in much wider coverage. More than 90 percent of the children in the United States are immunized. Most of the recent measles cases in the United States arrived with travelers. For example, California reported 58 cases from January through April 18 this year, the highest number for that period in 19 years. According to the CDC, 93 percent of the California cases are linked to importation of the disease. The Philippines has seen an ongoing outbreak. Sometimes a single traveler can ignite a wildfire of infections. In 2013, a 17-year-old who had not been vaccinated returned to an orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn from the United Kingdom,

leading to an outbreak that affected 58 people; most were in three extended families that had declined the measles vaccine. This year, an outbreak in Ohio has reached 68 cases, apparently sparked by Amish missionaries, unvaccinated, who had visited the Philippines. The measles vaccine has been in use for half a century and is safe, inexpensive and effective. Some parents suspicious of vaccines have decided against immunization; in other cases, people are simply ignorant of the risks of inaction. Not all 50 states have the toughest immunization laws and standards. Thus, in some vulnerable pockets of the United States, a single person can touch off an outbreak. A nation’s borders provide no ironclad defense against viruses and bacteria. But measles can be stopped with comprehensive and proper immunization. ­— The Washington Post

EPA: Brownback refutes need to regulate emissions Continued from A1 site outside Holcomb in southwest Kansas. Sunflower spokeswoman Cindy Hertel said the company is reviewing the new EPA rule and can’t say how it will affect the Holcomb project. But environmentalists argue that the plant’s construction would hamper any serious attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “It doesn’t make any sense for Kansas to focus on yesterday’s technology,” said Moti Rieber, an Overland Park rabbi and director of Kansas Interfaith Power and Light, a coalition of religious groups on environmental issues. Sara Belfry, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, said the EPA’s work on the new emissions rule had no bearing on the timing of the state’s decision on the coal-fired plant.

This is more of the Obama Administration’s war against middle America. We need Kansas solutions for Kansans. — Sam Brownback, Kansas governor

She noted that the EPA’s rule isn’t final and could change. Brownback, who served in the U.S. Senate before being elected governor in 2010, said he’s troubled that Democratic President Barack Obama’s administration is moving ahead without congressional approval of such a rule. He said Kansas already is working “to do its part to protect the environment” by developing wind farms and increasing the use of natural gas. “This is more of the Obama Administration’s war against middle America,”

Brownback said in a statement. “We need Kansas solutions for Kansans.” Brownback said the signing off on the new coal-fired plant supports “clean coal technologies.” Kansas hasn’t regulated greenhouse gas emissions, but Brownback signed legislation this year authorizing the state’s KDHE secretary to set “flexible” standards so that power plants don’t face “unreasonable costs” and utilities aren’t forced to switch fuel sources. The new law takes effect July 1, and Brownback has said

it’s an attempt to assert state control over environmental policy. Belfry said KDHE will work to ensure that the state law and the EPA rule “function together.” She said there’s no timetable yet for developing state regulations. But Rieber said the new state law was merely “scoring political points,” noting that the EPA is expecting each state to develop its own plan for curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, Westar Energy Inc., the state’s largest electric company, will develop its own plan for curbing such emissions, said spokeswoman Gina Penzig. But she said tougher environmental regulations have driven up the utility’s costs — and the bills of Westar’s nearly 700,000 customers — over the past decade. “Ultimately, it is our customers who pay the cost,” she said.

sion was to have Lee look over a contract Moran proposed and discuss any differences with the city’s attorney, Bret Heim. “We reviewed your contract and had lots of questions,” said Councilman Mueller, without being specific. Discussion about the city’s 2015 budget had council members turn to department heads for recommendations. In addition to including money for playground equipment, they will consider bleachers for the ball field, a copier and new computer terminals for the city clerk’s office, and a trencher for the city crew. They expect to have a preliminary budget to consider at their July 7

IN OTHER NEWS: — Council members will look into cost of purchasing a digital information sign to place outside of City Hall to alert citizens of goings on, such as council and fire meetings and public events. Nelda Cuppy, who came to the council session from a Moran Library Board meeting, said a bulletin board in public view would be helpful, she and other library board members thought. “We talked about it in the past,” said Mayor Phil Merkel. “We’ll do some research and see what’s available,” and what cost would be. — A merger of Moran and Marmaton and Osage townships volun-

The two started performing together at Fellowship Regional. Ellis said he wanted to put a twist on the church’s music. “We can throw things together well,” she said. “We connect in the music way and he’s a huge U2 fan, too.” Aguirre said her show will feature a little bit of everything. The audience can expect music

from bands U2 to Coldplay. “I like the alternative stuff more than the mass marketed pop music,” Aguirre said. “I like to discover stuff that has been lost for awhile and bring it back.” This will be Aguirre’s second time doing the series but she would like to see more people involved. “The One Night Stand Series is a good output for anyone that has a talent to share,” she said.

teer fire departments continues in the discussion stage, as it has for several months. Councilman Mueller said some members of the three departments “just don’t want to sit down and talk together. If it goes on much longer maybe we should forget it.” Merkel, Moran fire chief, agreed personality conflicts were getting in the way and for the good of a merger the path to resolution might be for each department to decide on its own, rather than all in one place at one time. — Council members approved use of the city ball field for a Moran Day tournament to raise money for the event. The tournament will be in early July.

Seattle ups wages SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle activists celebrated a successful campaign to gradually increase the city’s minimum wage to $15 by calling for a national movement to close the income and opportunity gaps between rich and poor. The Seattle City Council unanimously passed an ordinance Monday

that would give the city the highest minimum wage in the nation. Socialist City Council Member Kshama Sawant, who after the council meeting called on the people of America to elect more independent and socialist candidates, said the push for a higher minimum wage is spreading across the nation.

Iola softball players earn postseason honors By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

Iola High’s Hannah Endicott and Shelby Reno brought in postseason honors for their prowess on the softball diamond this spring. Endicott earned first-team All-Pioneer League honors. Reno was named to the second team. Endicott, a senior, batted .321 with a team-high 11 RBIs. She rapped out 17 hits and had 18 RBIs. Endicott had two dou-

bles and three triples on the season, while going a perfect 6-for-6 in stolen base attempts. She also had a .413 on-base percentage. She also was one of Iola’s two primary pitchers. Endicott went 3-8 with a save, allowing 61 hits in 49 2/3 innings. She walked 44 and struck out 40. While not on the mound, Endicott was the Fillies’ starting shortstop. Reno, a junior, manned third base, and wound up batting .320 for the Fillies. She

had 16 hits, 16 runs and eight RBIs. Reno’s on-base percentage was a team-high .433. She was successful in all five stolen base attempts. Iola head coach Vince Coons said IHS seniors Mackenzie Weseloh and Halie Cleaver also were nominated for allleague honors, but did not make the first or second team. The Pioneer League does not formally give honorable mention to other postseason honorees.

American Legion baseball season opens By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

Despite another season of losing some key contributors from its back-to-back state championship squads, the Iola AA American Legion Indians have high hopes for a three-peat. The Indians, who open the 2014 season tonight at West Franklin in Pomona, feature a number of returning stalwarts, plus a key infusion of standouts from Humboldt High’s baseball juggernaut. In fact, the Indians’ roster sports more Humboldt High products (seven) than from Iola (five) this summer. Among the expected key performers: Trent Latta and Derrick Weir were both among the Indians’ team leaders in 2013 and can be expected to do so again this summer. Latta starred both on the mound and in the field, where he’ll line up as shortstop and outfielder in 2014. Weir has been the starting catcher, while also taking to the mound for his senior year at Iola High. He’ll be expected to contribute at both positions for the Indians. Drew Faulhaber was the Indians’ starting second baseman last summer. Since then, he’s also been called on to pitch for Iola High. He’ll do both for the Indians, or play in the outfield. Grayson Pearish pitched for the Indians in 2012. Since then, he has developed into

Humboldt’s top pitcher and starting third baseman otherwise. He’ll man both positions this summer. Hunter Murrow and Kason Siemens manned middle infield slots for the Cubs. They’ll do the same for the Indians. Both also pitch. Jacob Carpenter has developed into an all-Tri-Valley League first baseman for Humboldt. He’ll start at first for Iola as well. Caleb Vanatta, Caleb D’Armond and Alex Murrow all have developed into standouts for the Cubs on offense and defense. Vanatta and D’Armond will play the outfield. Alex Murrow will catch and pitch. Two other familiar names fill the roster. Aaron Barclay and Eric Heffern both starred at IHS and for the Indians in 2013. While they exhausted their high school eligibility a year ago, both remain young enough for another season of Legion baseball. Roland Weir returns for his second year as head coach for the Indians. He is assisted by Bruce Faulhaber and Jay Carpenter. The Indians’ first home game is June 17 against Santa Fe Trail at the Allen Community College baseball diamond. The squad also has games scheduled at the new USD 258 Sports Complex in Humboldt. Money is a factor in the number of home games See BASEBALL | Page B3

ACC basketball signs seven By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

Allen Community College’s basketball team made great strides in 2013-14, improving its win total by 10 games in head coach Andy Shaw’s third full year at the helm. The Red Devils have brought in a large crop of newcomers to help maintain the upward arc. They’ll be counted on to play significant roles, because the Red Devils return only two players who saw significant action last season, Josh Sweet and Courtney Stockard. Assistant coach Ryan Mahoney announced the signees earlier this month, and spoke about each. The newcomers: — Darnell Jones-Bowie, a 5-11 point guard, averaged 19 points and 8 assists as a senior at Chicago Harper High School. He earned third-team all-state honors in Illinois, leading his team to a 13-5 record. “He’s a stocky built lead guard,” Mahoney said. “He’s a tough kid who grew up on the south side of Chicago. He’s got a good feel for the game, and he has great vision. He’s a great passer who’s already faced a lot of tough competition. We’re ecstatic to get him.” — Jordan Nanton is a sophomore transfer from Williston State Junior College out of North Dakota, where he averaged 4.7 points, 2.7 assists and 2 rebounds per game. His squad qualified for the nation-

al tournament. “Jordan is a point guard with great strength,” Mahoney said. “He’s got a collegeready body. He had a good year of experience we hope will be a springboard for a great sophomore year. He’s a good playmaker with the ball in his hands.” Nanton grew up in the Bronx, N.Y. — Daniel Southworth, a 6-1 guard out of Goddard-Eisenhower High School, averaged 7 points, 6 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game as a senior, where his team compiled a 21-2 record. He earned all-league honorable mention and was named to the KBCA Academy allstate team. “Daniel’s a tough, smart basketball player willing to do whatever it takes to help the team,” Mahoney said. For example, as a guard, he frequently was called on to guard opposing post players in high school. “You can’t top his work ethic in the gym,” Mahoney said. “He has an amazing understanding of the game from an IQ standpoint.” — Ayinde Starling is a 6-3

wing player out of Catholic Mission HIgh School in a suburban Milwaukee, Wisc. He averaged 12.7 points and 5.4 rebounds for his 7-17 squad. He earned honorable mention, all-league recognition. “Ayinde can guard all three positions on defense,” Mahoney said, and can utilize his speed and strength. “He’s athletic enough to finish above the rim on offense.” — Darren Spruill is a 6-4 forward out of Osage City, where he averaged 17.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2 assists for an 18-5 Indians squad. He was first-team all-conference and earned honorable mention allstate recognition. “He’s a great combo forward,” Mahoney said. “He’ll be able to handle the 4, or go to the 3 if necessary.” Spruill also was a standout on the football field and track. “We’re excited to get him to play basketball,” Mahoney said. — Coel Rayl, a 6-6 post player out of Osawatomie, is a familiar face to Iola High fans.

Obama speaks on prisoner exchange WARSAW, Poland (AP) — President Barack Obama today defended his decision to release five Afghan detainees from Guantanamo Bay in exchange for an American soldier’s freedom, saying his administration had consulted with Congress about that possibility “for some time.” Obama also brushed aside questions about the circumstances surrounding Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s capture by insurgents in 2009. The United States, he said, has a “sacred” obligation to not leave men and women in uniform behind. “Regardless of the circumstances, whatever those circumstances may turn out to be, we still get an American soldier back if he’s held in captivity,” Obama said during a news conference in Poland as he opened a three-country European visit. “We don’t condition that.” There have long been questions about how Bergdahl disappeared from his unit nearly five years ago. The Pentagon concluded in 2010 that Bergdahl walked away, and, after an initial flurry of searching, the military curbed any high-risk rescue plans. Despite the Pentagon’s conclusions, Obama said the government was not currently seeking to punish Bergdahl as a deserter. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Tuesday that the Army may still pursue an investigation that could lead to desertion charges against Bergdahl.

Duffy, Royals get on track with 6-0 win St. Louis By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Danny Duffy became the latest pitcher to shut down the St. Louis Cardinals. Duffy worked six innings of one-hit ball coming off a pair of poor outings and Alex Gordon homered to start a breakout three-run seventh for the Kansas City Royals in a 6-0 victory over the suddenly punchless defending NL champs on Monday night. “I told him, ‘You didn’t throw a great game, you pitched a great game,’” manager Ned Yost said. “He was just right on top of his game.” THE ROYALS had just two singles off Shelby Miller (6-5) in a game that had been scoreless before they opened the seventh with four straight hits. Gordon’s fifth homer ended a 15-inning scoreless drought and Mike Moustakas

capped the rally with a two-run double. “I felt good early on,” Miller said. “I felt like I just kind of gave the game away in the seventh. It’s just frustrating.” Matt Holliday had two singles and a walk for the Cardinals, who have been shut out in consecutive games at home and have single-digit hit totals the last four games. They’re just 2-6 with one game to go on a ninegame home stand. “It’s a long season. You’re going to have those times,” said Yadier Molina, who is 2 for 21 during the home stand. “We know we’re good hitters.” Between Holliday’s single with two outs in the first and his single leading off the seventh, the Cardinals were 0 for 17 with a walk — also by Holliday in the fourth. Coming off an 8-0 loss to San Francisco on Sunday, the Cardinals were shut out two straight times at home for the first time since

1992 against Pittsburgh, and by six or more runs at home in two straight games since dropping a doubleheader to the Reds in 1937. “We’ve had lots of meetings, we’ve had the conversations we needed to have,” manager Mike Matheny said. “What we’re doing right now isn’t going to work and they know that. We all do.” DUFFY (3-5) struck out five and walked one, rebounding from consecutive losses in which he surrendered 10 earned runs in 10 innings. He has a one-hit start over six or more innings each of the last three seasons. “Physically, I felt really good,” Duffy said. “I still didn’t have as much behind the ball as I normally do, but I felt fine just like last time.” Rare backing from the offense made everything feel a lot better. The Royals totaled three runs while Duffy was in the game his first five starts over 27 innings.

“Sometimes it’s just the luck of the draw,” Duffy said. “The guys swing the sticks really well.” Three relievers completed a three-hitter. The Royals advanced one runner to second base before Gordon led off the seventh with his fifth homer, a drive over the Cardinals’ bullpen in right field. “It was awesome,” Moustakas said. “It got a good pitch to hit and he crushed it and it kind of loosened us up in the dugout.” Lorenzo Cain beat out an infield hit unsuccessfully challenged by the Cardinals and Miller threw his second wild pitch of the inning after a visit from pitching coach Derek Lilliquist, setting up Moustakas’ double. KANSAS CITY added three in the eighth. Cardinals rookie center fielder Randal Grichuk struck out three times and whiffed fielding the ball on the RBI single by

Salvador Perez, allowing a second run to score. NOTES: Holliday has reached safely in all 29 home games. .. The Cardinals anticipate pitcher Lance Lynn, who underwent medical tests after tweaking his right knee Sunday, will make his next start. ... Cardinals pitching prospect Marco Gonzales, a first-round pick last year, and teammates from Double-A Springfield attended the game on a day off. ... The Royals claimed RHP Blake Wood on waivers from Cleveland and assigned him to Triple-A Omaha, making room on the 40-man roster by transferring RHP Luke Hochevar (elbow surgery) from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL. Kansas City also purchased the contract of RHP Wilking Rodriguez, optioned RHP Louis Coleman to Omaha and designed LHP Justin Marks for assignment. ... The Royals are 5-1 in interleague play.

WICHITA — Humboldt High’s track team gained some valuable experience on the big stage over the weekend, by competing in the Kansas State Track Meet. “I thought all of the kids did well,” head coach Eric Carlson said. “We only had three kids with state experience, and only two have actually competed.” Humboldt’s state champion 4x400-meter relay team from 2013 returned only one runner, Ethan Bartlett, but still was able to qualify for finals and earn a medal. Bartlett teamed with Bryce Isaac, Andrew Keazer and Justin Meins to

ear n a seventh-place medal with a time of 3 minutes, 34.69 seconds. “I was ecstatic about how well those three new boys ran for us,” Carlson said. “Andrew ran personal bests in the 4x400 relay and the open 800.” Joe Kline, Bartlett, Ronny Jarred and Keazer finished 13th in the 4x800-meter relay at 9:09. Keazer ran a personal-best 2:04.89 in the 800-meter run. “Our 4x800 team is pretty young, and I think nerves played a big part in our slow time,” Carlson said. “Every one of our qualifiers is an underclassman. You can’t guarantee what will

happen next year at regionals, but it is exciting to have all of these kids back.” Bartlett finished 10th in the 400 meters at 52.96 seconds. Isaac took 11th in the triple jump at 40 feet, 11.5 inches. Haylie Yost was the sole girl among the state qualifiers. She finished 16th in the 800 at 2:50. “Perhaps the most rewarding thing for us coaches is every kid told us at some point over the weekend they wished the season wasn’t over,” Carlson said. “They’re going to work even harder next year to return to state, and to improve on their placings. It’s a great day to be a Cub.”

Nonalcoholic fatty liver is increasing Dear Dr. Roach: I am 59 years old and am having problems with my lower abdomen. After colonoscopy and ultrasound, my doctor called to say I have a fatty liver. When asked what that means, I was told to lose weight. I weigh 170 pounds, and am 5 feet, 6 inches tall. Research online suggests that alcohol is an issue, but I don’t drink. I may have a drink or a beer when I go out, but most times I am the designated driver, so I don’t drink. The only medication I take is EstradiolNorethindrone 0.5-0.1; I

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health take one daily. Diabetes does not run in my family, and I have not been tested for it. Can you give me information on “fatty liver” and treatment? — J.A. Answer: Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is an increasingly common problem; in fact, it is the most common liver disorder in industrialized countries. Recent

studies have suggested that 30 percent to 46 percent of people in the U.S. have NAFLD. Most people are diagnosed in their 40s or 50s. Obesity, particularly abdominal obesity (as opposed to fat around the hips and thighs) is common in fatty liver disease. People with suspected NAFLD should have other possible causes evaluated, especially viral hepatitis (types B and C), hemochromatosis and autoimmune hepatitis. Simple fatty liver is a benign condition; however, some people

will develop the more serious condition nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Seventy percent of people with NASH are obese, and up to 75 percent have Type 2 diabetes. NASH without treatment can lead to fibrosis and even cirrhosis of the liver. Your body mass index is 27, so you are considered overweight, not obese. Still, I would recommend gradually losing 10 pounds or so. I also would recommend that you continue to drink very moderately or not at all. Exercise also can help.
