Rotary’s wheelchair initiative brings joy By BOB JOHNSON

Delivery of 280 wheelchairs to Guanajuato, Mexico, with the majority going to patients at a children’s rehabilitation center, drew a reception that “made us feel like rock stars,” Brenda Nelson told Iola Rotarians Thursday. Nelson and her husband, Larry, assistant governor of Rotary District 6110, are from Mountain Home, Ark. They told local Rotarians they had been on several wheelchair distribution missions and found the experience fulfilling. “We all have been touched and overwhelmed,” Larry Nelson said. Wheelchairs come from Rotarian efforts as well as others — a grade school class in Mountain Home has raised $50,000 over the years — and go to recipients of all ages living in poor circumstances in Mexico and other countries.

There was no mistaking the joy of this young boy, when he was one of many in Guanajuato, Mexico, given a wheelchair through a Rotary program. The Nelsons’ first distribution trip was to Mexico in 2009, an area by bus two

ACC considers insurance By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

Loren Korte, an agent with Personal Service Insurance, gave Allen Community College trustees his “two cents” on the future of the college’s insurance policy. ACC President John Masterson said the college had been in contact with other southeast Kansas community college’s to discuss the possibility of group insurance policy with five schools. ACC’s current policy is with EMC Insurance, Wichita. Korte said the new insurance could possibly show some savings in deductible, however, it is yet to be seen whether there would be savings in premiums over ACC’s current policy.

CITF PRIDE members assisted Allen County Historical Society Director Elyssa Jackson in cleaning up the old Allen County Jail in preparation for tours, which are given from May to September. New windows were installed in the museum in November, requiring all items to be taken down from the walls. Above, Jackson and CITF member Mike Ford move an old washing machine.

nice homes,” Brenda Nelson said. One home contained five generations, with a elderly grandmother and toddler sleeping indoors, others in hammocks outdoors the year-round. Before being given a wheelchair, one man “had gotten around for years on a hospital Port-a-Potty with small wheels,” she said. “He put down the lid” and scooted about. Two years ago the Nelsons joined one of the five-day distribution journeys to Jamaica. They delivered wheelchairs to St. Monica’s Home for the Aged, with the chairs mainly going to adults who had had legs amputated because of advanced diabetes. Before they got wheelchairs, recipients spent their time since amputations sitting and seldom going anywhere, Larry Nelson said.

“Dropping your coverage with EMC may or may not be a good thing,” Korte said. He said EMS currently offers a linebacker policy that covers decisions made by the board and any repercussions the decisions may cause in the future. He said any current policy would not include this coverage. His suggestion is to wait a year or two and see where the new policy takes the other schools. If there were to be substantial savings for ACC, he said he would be the first to suggest a policy change, referring to the decision as “just good business.” However, the current policy See ACC | Page A5

Sequester takes toll on programs By DAVE RANNEY KHI News Service

Market kicks off

On the first day of the Allen County Farmers Market season, vendor Julie Aubert, with Aubert Acres, shows Shepard Smith the different colored flowers available for purchase. The farmers market is every Thursday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on the southwest corner of the square. Vol. 115, No.118

TOPEKA — Across Kansas, Head Start and Early Head Start programs are bracing for a 5-percent cut in federal funding due to budget sequestration. “We’re anticipating the loss of about 475 out of 9,500 slots statewide,” said Lori Alvarado, executive director at the Kansas Head Start Association. Child Start, Inc., which runs or has a hand in running 17 Head Start and Early Head Start programs in Butler, Greenwood, Harper and Sedgwick counties, last month announced that on May 1 it would lay off nine

workers and convert three full-time positions to halftime. It also plans to reduce by 74 the number of children it accepts into its program. It currently accepts 1,272. “The good news in all this is that Head Start doesn’t operate in the summer and we should have enough kids aging out of whatever program they’re in now. So we shouldn’t have to drop anyone who’s in the program now,” said Child Start Executive Director Teresa Rupp. “But the bad news is that when we start up again in the fall, there will be 74 fewer slots,” she said. Rupp said the Head Start 75 Cents

program in Eureka would not reopen. Eureka is in Greenwood County. “The 15 slots that are there now won’t be there in the fall,” she said. “We’re by no means giving up on Greenwood County. If Congress gets it together and restores the funding, we’ll be back in there.” ‘These children can’t wait’ Early Head Start is for children between 0 and 3 years old; Head Start for those between 3 and 5. Both programs are committed to providing early childhood development and education in ways meant to ensure that children are See SEQUESTER | Page A5

Grant buys safety vests

H Rotary

Allen County officers will be safer because of a grant the sheriff ’s department attracted from the U.S. Department of Justice. Undersheriff Jerry Daniels said the 50-50 matching grant of $2,000 would pay for five new bullet-proof vests for deputies.

On the day the Rotary team arrived at the children’s rehab center in Guanajuato, Mexico, children eligible for chairs were called in. “Some had been waiting in line for seven hours,� when Rotarians arrived, Nelson said.

Continued from A1

Chair sizes had been determined ahead of time and the distribution went quickly, with center employees having it well organized, he added. Most of the children’s mobility problems came from poor sanitation and lack of prenatal

care for their mothers, Brenda Nelson said. Their second day at Guanajuato, the Rotarians took wheelchairs to homes in the area, where those needing the convenience had been identified earlier. The Nelsons said during each of the distri-

bution trips they took along their grandsons, who shared the adulation of recipients and also embraced the fulfilling experience of helping others. The Iola club, which raises money for local, national and international benevolent

programs, has given money in the past to help with purchases of wheelchairs, which cost $150 each. Thursday club members voted unanimously to send the Nelsons home to Arkansas with a check for $150 to buy another wheelchair.

Financial Focus Help Yourself Reduce Investment Stress You probably aren’t too worried about it, but April is Stress Awareness Month. Each year, the Health Resource Network sponsors this “monthâ€? to inform people about the dangers of stress and to share successful coping strategies. Obviously, it’s important to reduce stress in all walks of life — including your investment activities. How can you cut down on the various stresses associated with investing? Here are a few possible “stress-bustersâ€?: • Know your risk tolerance. If you’re constantly worrying about the value of your investments, your portfolio may simply be too volatile for your individual risk tolerance. Conversely, if you’re always feeling that your investments will never provide you with the growth you need to achieve your long-term goals, you might be investing too conservatively. • Know what to expect from your investments. Uncertainty is often a leading cause of stress. So when you purchase investments that are mysterious to you, you shouldn’t be surprised if they perform in ways that raise your stress levels. Never invest in something unless you fully understand its characteristics and risk potential. • Be prepared for market volatility. Over the long term, the financial markets have trended upward, though their past performance can’t guarantee future results. Yet for periods of months, and even years, these same markets can sputter and decline. So when you invest, be aware of this volatility; if you’re prepared for it, you won’t be shocked when it happens, and you should be able to better keep stress at bay. • Maintain realistic expectations. If you think your investments are going to earn a very high rate of return, year after year, you are more than likely going to be disappointed — and you could easily get “stressed out.â€? You’re much better off, from a stress standpoint, not to expect eye-popping results. • Diversify your portfolio. If you were only to own one asset class, such as growth stocks, and that particular segment took a big hit during a market drop, your whole portfolio could suffer, and it could take years to recover — causing you no end of stress. But if you spread your investment dollars among a range of vehicles — stocks, bonds, government securities and so on — your portfolio has a better chance of weathering the ups and downs of the market. (Keep in mind, though, that while diversification may help you reduce the effects of volatility, it can’t prevent losses or guarantee profits.) • Think long term. If you only measure your investment success by short-term results, you can feel frustrated and stressed. But when you stop to consider your objectives, you may find that the most important ones, such as a comfortable retirement, are all long-term in nature. Consequently, it makes more sense to measure the progress you’re making with your investments in periods of years, or even decades, rather than days or months. Instead of fretting over your monthly investment statements, compare where you are today versus where you were 10 or 15 years ago. The results may well surprise and help “de-stressâ€? you. Stress Awareness Month will come and go. But by making the right moves, you can help take some of the stress out of investing for a long time to come.

Today, I want to share what I consider to a great day in Kansas History. On Thursday, 60 years after saving hundreds of soldiers in the Korean War, Father Emil Kapaun was honored with the Medal of Honor, the military’s highest award. This has been a long time coming. As a young girl attending grade school in Piqua, I was taught about Father Kapaun. The Piqua School at that time was taught by the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Wichita. My first and second grade teacher was a huge fan of Father Kapaun, and she sparked in me a lifelong following of this extraordinary man. Here is a little background of him. He and his family lived on a farm three miles southwest of Pilsen. Fr. Kapaun graduated from Pilsen High School in May 1930, then left for the seminar to study for the priesthood. On June 9, 1940, he was ordained

After seven months, Father Kapaun died of starvation and pneumonia, and was buried in an unmarked grave. His remains are still somewhere in North Korea. The service he gave fellow prisoners has made him a candidate for sainthood and now a recipient of the Medal of Honor. Father Kapaun is memorialized in Pilsen. He was nominated as an Eight Wonders of Kansas person and has several schools and memorials dedicated to him in the Wichita Diocese. As I have read about him over the years my admiration has only grown. Thank you to Kansas congressmen who helped get for this amazing Kansas man what is due to him and to his family.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Preparing to let go I find myself in dad’s bedroom more often these days. On his dresser are two pictures of mother and him. The pictures are of happier days, of course. One is from a standard church directory photo session. The other is taken on a cold, blustery day on a Connecticut beach where my brother Mike lives. Mom’s head is resting on dad’s shoulder as he cradles her tightly, bracing against the stiff wind. Just recently I cleared the perfume bottles off her dressing table, four years after her death. Nearby is a box of personal letters, including two spiral notebooks in which mom and dad “corresponded” during a Marriage Encounter program 30 years ago. I feel as if I’m spying when I peek at their writings and it makes me a little uncomfortable to read the intimate exchanges. It’s not all lovey-dovey. I squirm to read mother’s confessions. She had an ongoing battle with herself, wishing she’d had a professional career, but doubting her abilities. She did not feel dad’s equal, and when he said she was perfect, she thought it patronizing. But he meant it sincerely. He knew she was a jewel. DAD’S CANCER has now spread to his liver. He pressured the oncologist to give him an estimate. One to four months. With mother, we had no time to prepare for death. It came out of the blue. Now, knowing I’m going to lose my dad within a certain time frame leaves me no more assured I can do this right, or that I’ll feel at peace when his time comes. He doesn’t seem to have such concerns. With no prompting he’ll say he’s had a good, long life with no regrets and that everyone must die. When told the cancer had spread to his liver, his response was, “I’m not surprised.” In a way, it helped him better understand why he was not making “adequate progress” — Medicare terminology for kicking you off its coverage. WHEN BRIAN and I moved

Susan Lynn

in with dad after mom’s death I don’t think I realized all the implications — and complications. Our biggest hurdle was overcoming our grief. Dad and I didn’t see eye-to-eye on the best way to move on. He was of the generation that everything could be solved with a good stiff drink — or three. That first year wasn’t our finest. But then we three got into a kind of groove. We got up in shifts, I making sure the pot of coffee would stretch to dad. Brian’s schedule was sandwiched between ours. At day’s end we’d gather to watch the Newshour followed by dinner. Dad loved a good meal at night and was our dedicated shopper. He never came home from a trip to the city without an ice chest full of fresh fish, marinated condiments, Asiago bread, and fresh vegetables he thought looked fun. He enjoyed watching us cook or sometimes would nurse a drink as he looked out over the yard. He never tired of looking out at the creek and the wildlife it attracts. For three years we hummed along with nary a hitch, until the end of last year, when the drinking became heavy again. But this time he used the drink to self-medicate against the cancer that none of us knew about. The glass was taller and he drank as if he were parched. I couldn’t understand the change in his behavior, and because it was a long-sensitive issue between us, was loath to bring it up again. Let him have his way, I told myself. He is 88. It’s not going to kill him. I’ve had to do very little caretaking of dad, even at his advanced age. Yes, a little more cooking. A little less freedom. In exchange for a lot more love. That will be missed.

Letter to the editor Dear editor,

I would like to present a different perspective from a couple of articles you have written recently. I hope the time still exists in Iola whereby different ideas are welcome in the public forum. “Teens have sex; let’s deal with it,” from Saturday, April 6: One of the points you made in that article was: “As a state, Kansas makes it very difficult to get rid of an unwanted pregnancy.” I am a believer in the sanctity of human life, no matter its age or location — from the womb to the nursing home. I was frankly embarrassed by the Kansas that was previously known as a late-term abortion center. Especially now with 4D ultrasound that gives us a clear window to the womb, we know this is a baby, a little human being. Science has caught up with what people of faith already knew from their Bibles. A baby is knit together in its mother’s womb by God and “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139). I am not upset that abortions are becoming more difficult to attain in the state of Kansas. If your readers would like to become informed about some of the atrocities being committed in abortion clinics, they should look up the ongoing Pennsylvania murder trial of Kermit

Gosnell. They may have to do some digging. Our media seems reticent and unwilling to report news that does not line up with their political positions. One recent article that I have read can be found at (April 10 under “Opinion” Kirsten Powers). Another article that I would like to present a different point of view for is entitled “First impressions: Is Kansas doomed” from the Wednesday, April 10, edition. The paragraph that I would like to differ with is the one that states, “. . . we’re all lumped in with the bigots and naysayers, just as we were when creationism was suggested to be taught alongside evolution in our public schools. That sent the message that Kansas is a backward state.” Again, science needs to catch up to the Scriptures. Evolution is not fact. It is a misguided theory that has failed to prove anything. Neither evolution nor creationism can be proven, and they both require faith. From my studies I believe evolution requires more blind faith, and that many laws of science support creationism. Why should intelligent people be afraid of putting both views side by side, and let the individual decide? Sincerely, Becky Quinn Iola, Kan.

Cough up cash for good causes How about flapjacks and spaghetti for dinner tonight? That may not sound like an appetizing combination, but by partaking you can help out a couple of worthy causes. Her friends and co-workers at USD 257 food service promise light, fluffy pancakes and tasty sausage at the Iola High commons from 5 to 8 p.m. to raise money to help Rhoda Gilliland. She has been diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia and can use a hand with finances. A modest charge will be made for the meal, and a little extra generosity would be appropriate and greatly appreciated. A raffle for a barbecue grill and other prizes will be part of the event. At St. John’s Catholic

Church Parish Hall, students who will represent USD 257 in national history competition in Washington, D.C., will serve spaghetti that will make your mouth water in another fundraiser, also from 5 to 8 p.m. Free-will donations will be accepted. I’d recommend stopping by one benefit early and the other a little later. There’s an excellent chance one will whet your appetite for the other. SUCH EVENTS as these

occur frequently in smalltown America, because those of us who live there understand that giving assistance to others, whether it’s to dull the financial pain of a major illness or help kids who have worked hard to make us proud, is not only the right thing to do but also something we understand as an obligation of “giving back” to our community. Folks in this neck of the woods are good about volunteering to help make day-today life a little better for all of us and, to our credit, we also come across with generosity when need is demonstrated. You’ll feel good for having made the effort, and the few dollars you’ll be out will have been well-spent.

Paul’s rough day at Howard U. WASHINGTON — Tea party titan Rand Paul, visiting Howard University on Wednesday, told students that he had been called “either brave or crazy to be here” at the historically black college. Probably some of each: brave, because he’s trying to sell himself and fellow Republicans to African-Americans, a singularly resistant demographic; and crazy, because he based his pitch on revised history and airbrushed facts — and the Howard kids weren’t fooled. “No Republican questions or disputes civil rights,” the senator from Kentucky proclaimed. “I’ve never wavered in my support for civil rights or the Civil Rights Act.” Howzat? As a candidate in 2010, Paul questioned the constitutionality of the Civil Rights Act’s Title II, which prohibits private discrimination. “I don’t want to be associated with those people,” he said when MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow asked him about private businesses that refuse to serve black customers, “but I also don’t want to limit their speech in any way in the sense that we tolerate boorish and uncivilized behavior because that’s one of the things freedom requires.” Asked by the moderator at Howard to explain his claim that he never spoke out against the Civil Rights Act, Paul provided the creative rationale that he was talking “about the ramifications of certain portions of the Civil Rights Act beyond race, as are now being applied to smoking, menus, listing calories and things on menus and guns.” Paul acknowledged that his wooing of African-Americans “is an uphill battle,” and his hour with the students con-

firmed this. Talking about the Republicans’ historical support for civil rights, he said: “I’ll give you one example. The first, one of the African-

Dana Milbank Washington Post Writers Group American U.S. senators was a guy named, uh, I’m blanking on his name, from Massachusetts — “ “Edward Brooke!” several in the audience called out. “Edwin Brookes,” Paul repeated. The students broke out in hysterics. The laughter had barely subsided when Paul posed a question. “If I were to have said, ‘Who do you think the founders of the NAACP are?’ ... would everybody in here know they were all Republicans?” “Yes,” several could be heard grumbling. “Of course they would,” one woman informed him. Paul dug himself in deeper. “I don’t know what you know,” he said. They knew enough to be suspicious of his central argument: that Abraham Lincoln’s Republican Party is the same Republican Party that now dominates the South. This analysis glossed over the civil rights era, when Democrats and Republicans essentially switched sides as Southern Dixiecrats left for the GOP. “Democrats in Louisville were led by Courier-Journal Editor Henry Watterson and were implacably opposed to blacks voting,” Paul argued. Watterson died in 1921.

“Meanwhile,” he continued, “Kentucky’s Democratcontrolled legislature voted against the 13th, the 14th and the 15th amendments.” In the 1860s. A student questioner sought clarification. “Are we discussing the Republican Party of the 19th century?” he asked, to applause. “Or are we discussing the post-1968 Republican Party?” “The argument I’m trying to make is we haven’t changed,” Paul proposed. The Howard students weren’t hostile to the senator as much as indifferent. Campus police swarmed outside the hall and erected barricades, although they proved unnecessary. Doors opened an hour early, but seats didn’t fill up until the last minute, and many spent their time texting and fanning themselves in the overheated hall. “My hope is that you will hear me out,” Paul asked, and all appeared to — except for senior Brian Menifee, who raised a hand-lettered banner announcing that “Howard University Doesn’t Support White Supremacy.” Police threw him out roughly, and other students cheered. But Paul got no cheers for most of his ideas: criticizing Democrats’ “unlimited federal assistance,” calling privateschool choice “the civil rights issue of our day” and saying that “there are Republicans who don’t clamor for war.” He did better with his proposal to repeal mandatory minimum sentences but he drew boos when he defended voter-ID laws. “I come to Howard,” Paul said, “to say I want a government that leaves you alone.” He argued that “objective evidence shows that big government is not a friend to African-Americans.”

Kansas briefs Employers insure fewer Kansans

TOPEKA — A study, released Thursday, was paid for by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which funds health research and programs. Researchers at the University of Minnesota’s State Health Access Data Assistance Center found that 64 percent of Kansans were insured through their employers in 2011, the latest information available, down from 73.9 percent in 2000. Nationwide, 11.5 million fewer Americans get their insurance through the workplace in 2011 than in 2000.

The decline comes as insurance costs increase. Robert Wood Johnson Foundation CEO Risa LavizzoMourey says higher costs lead to fewer employers offering insurance coverage and fewer employees accepting it when it’s offered.

Garden City company sold

GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Garden City company has been acquired by an international diversified metals company. Worthington Industries announced it had acquired Palmer Manufacturing, which em-

ploys about 200 people in Garden City. The financial details were not disclosed. The Garden City Telegram reported Palmer Manufacturing makes equipment for the oil and gas industry, as well as custom manufactured fiberglass tanks for agricultural, chemical and general industrial applications. Palmer Manufacturing owner Cecil O’Brate says the Garden City plant will continue to be used and none of its employees will lose their jobs. He says Worthington plans to double the plant’s productivity and add employees.

ready to learn upon entering kindergarten. Eligibility is limited to children living in households at or below 130 percent of the federal poverty level — about $2,100 a month for a single mother with two children. Waiting lists are commonplace. Amy Blosser, director of the Early Head Start and Head Start programs in Topeka, said she will propose cuts similar to those announced by Child Start. “Yes, there will be a reduction in staff and, yes, there will be a reduction in slots,” she said. “But that’s about all I can say at this point because the (programs’) governing groups haven’t gotten to weigh in on this yet, and until they do there’s not much I can tell the staff or say publicly. It’s a very unfortunate situation.” Blosser said the Topeka programs will be hit especially hard because the sequestration reductions took effect five months into their fiscal year. “Basically, we have seven months — rather than 12 months — to make up for the loss,” she said. “The only way to do that while maintaining quality is through layoffs and serving fewer families. We cannot let quality be affected by this.” In Topeka, 226 youngsters are enrolled in the Head Start programs; 76 in Early Head Start. Sequestration is expected to cut almost $3 million from the Kansas programs’ $59.9 million allocation from the federal government. “You can step back from this and, looking at the big picture, say, ‘Oh, 5 percent isn’t that much,’ or “$3 million isn’t that much,” Rupp said. “But these are children and families that we’re talking about, and these kids are only three years old when they’re three years old.

In Kansas, the sequestration reductions coincide with Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposal to improve the state’s fourth-grade reading

scores by requiring third graders to pass a reading test before being allowed to advance to fourth grade. Legislators, in turn, agreed to shift the initiative’s focus onto first graders. They’ve also expressed support for early childhood development programs

He’s matured so much in his speech. It’s incredible. My husband and I both read to him but the interaction he gets with other kids is important too.” Peredoe, who lives in Towanda, said she and her husband are in their 60s.

Recent blast raises questions about gas pipeline safety Engagement By STEVE EVERLY The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Turn it. Stop a leak. Save lives and property. The role of an emergency shutoff valve on a natural gas pipeline would seem pretty straightforward. But shutoff valves, in the hands of pipeline operators and gas utilities, are often toothless bystanders in the prevention of deadly gas explosions. Regulations require their installation, but not their use in emergencies. Experts say that pipeline safety is governed by a mishmash of state rules and weak federal oversight. The natural gas industry, they say, has a torturous history with regulators, often working to delay reforms. In many areas, the number of shutoff valves on the gas lines serving individual homes and businesses has drastically declined in recent decades. It’s only recently that reg-

An investigation continues at the scene of a natural gas explosion at JJ's restaurant in Kansas City, Mo. ulators succeeded in making utilities put updated valves on those lines, and then only on new ones. Utility and gas industry representatives counter that they take safety seriously and that utility crews can plug leaks effectively — without using shutoff valves. But Jim Hall, former chairman of the federal National Transportation Safety Board, which investigates natural gas disasters, said shutoff

valves are “as important as brakes on a car. ... “I’ve been waiting patiently for two decades for the industry to embrace safety.� The reluctance to use shutoff valves isn’t unusual, safety experts say. When closed, they deny gas service not to just the homes or businesses nearby, but to potentially hundreds of customers. Service then has to be restored by utility employ-

In recent gas-leak blasts, shutoff valves weren’t used. Instead of shutting the valves when the smell of gas was in the air before the February blast that leveled JJ’s restaurant, Missouri Gas Energy waited for a backhoe to arrive from Raymore — more than 20 miles away — in a failed attempt to vent the leak. A waitress was killed and several people were injured. Last year, Kansas Gas Service took hours to stop a leak in Topeka instead of using a shutoff valve. In the follow-up investigation, state regulators wondered why the shutoff valves weren’t closed.

Former Royal Greinke breaks collarbone By BERNIE WILSON AP Sports Writer

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke broke his left collarbone in a bench-clearing brawl with the San Diego Padres during Los Angeles’ 3-2 victory Thursday night. Juan Uribe’s pinch-hit home run in the eighth put the Dodgers ahead, two innings after Greinke hit Carlos Quentin on the left shoulder with a pitch. The slugger started walking toward the mound and Greinke appeared to say something. Quentin then charged See BRAWL | Page B2

Coffeyville defeats Allen COFFEYVILLE — Allen Community College’s hurlers had a rough go of it Thursday, dropping an 11-7 decision to Coffeyville. The game had been suspended from April 2 due to rain. The Red Devils sent five pitchers into the contest. All five struggled, surrendering a combined nine hits and seven walks. Ten of Coffeyville’s 11 runs were earned. Allen also committed four errors. The Red Devils took advantage of Raven miscues during a six-run fifth inning to get back into the contest. Leading 8-1, Coffeyville starter Logan DeRosier was chased in the top of

the fifth after he walked the bases loaded. Tim Lewis greeted the reliever with an RBI single. Then Jerrik Sigg and Tyler Noel scored on a Coffeyville error for the second and third runs. Lewis scored on a passed ball before a pair of Coffeyville relievers served up two more walks to load the bases. Another walk to Garrett Rasch scored Troy Willoughby. Sigg was hit by a pitch to score Drew Walden. But a ground-out to Noel left the base runners stranded and ACC still trailing by one, 8-7. See ALLEN | Page B2

degrove shot 80 to tie for 25th. “It was a not a great day for golf weather-wise,” Yates Center coach Kevin Barnes said. “And this course is more difficult than the one they played last week, so I think both golfers are improving.”

Wildcat thinclads compete OSWEGO — Some early rainouts will mean a busy few weeks for Marmaton Valley High’s track team for the rest of the season. Two days after belatedly opening their season in Yates Center — two prior meets were rained out — Marmaton Valley traveled to Oswego for a meet postponed from earlier this season. “It was still pretty nasty weather, but we still had some good times,” Marmaton Valley coach Kent Houk said. The Wildcat boys took third place in the nine-team competition with 92 points. Fairland won the boys side with 15.5 points. Oswego was second at 96. On the girls’ side, the Wildcats earned 22 points, good for seventh. Jayhawk-Linn won the girls’ competition with 136 points. Marmaton Valley’s results: Boys Javelin 3. Trent Johnson, 125’11”

The Iola Register

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


A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves

News-Journal/JIM TILLER

No. 1 in your heart, maybe, but now No. 3 in points.

Junior got dumped from atop the points standings. Will he return?

GODSPEAK: Nobody noticed when he took the points lead. They will pay more attention when he wins this week at Texas. KEN’S CALL: Godwin is calling for a Junior win in Texas? Can’t wait to see if he’s in a gambling mood.

How long will Danica’s 12th-place finish quiet the critics?

GODSPEAK: Patrick did well at Daytona and now tiny Martinsville. She seems to excel at extreme tracks. Isn’t Darlington coming up on the schedule? KEN’S CALL: She quieted me. I figured she’d be sharing an early-afternoon cab to the Martinsville airfield with Joe Nemechek.

WHAT’S ON TAP? SPRINT CUP: NRA 500 SITE: Fort Worth, Texas SCHEDULE: Friday, practice (Speed, 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.); qualifying (Speed, 6:40 p.m.). Saturday, race (Fox, coverage begins at 7 p.m., green flag at 7:46 p.m.) TRACK: Texas Motor Speedway (1.5-mile, oval) RACE DISTANCE: 334 laps, 501 miles


Track makes the man

In 1984, young NASCAR car owner Rick Hendrick was down to his last dollar and thought about skipping the race at Martinsville Speedway, but his driver, Geoff Bodine, talked him into plunking down the entry fee. The rest, as they say, is history. Bodine, who knew how to drive Martinsville because of his Modified battles at the half-mile oval, won the race, which helped land the team a sponsor and created a foundation for Hendrick Motorsports. Just for the record, Bodine won three Cup Series races in Hendrick’s startup season with the legendary Harry Hyde as his crew chief. With Jimmie Johnson’s eighth career win at Martinsville, Hendrick became the track’s all-time winningest car owner with 20 victories stretching back to Bodine’s heroic triumph 29 years ago. Hendrick added more personal history about Martinsville Sunday after Johnson’s victory. “The first time I ever came to a Cup race was here with my dad,” Hendrick said. “We’ve been very fortunate to have some great drivers, and this track has been awful good to us.” Hendrick Motorsports has 212 Cup Series victories, but really, who’s counting?

we’ll take this and get rolling into the summer because we don’t have a break until July.”

Hey Joe, where you going?

Joe Nemechek is now racing, not parking. While Nemechek is not an imminent threat to win a Cup Series race, he has stepped up his game in 2013. Over the entire 2012 season, the 49-year-old driver completed 1,507 laps. In six starts this year, he has logged 1,743 laps. And here’s another sign: He’s running at the finish. In 2010-2012, Nemechek was running at the finish in four races. This year, he has seen the checkered flag five times. Of course, this has improved his average finish. Last year, he averaged a 39thplace finish. In 2013, he has pushed up to 34.8.


Since preseason, post-race photos have been less festive for the Harvicks.

Tough times for a rookie at Martinsville. Should we be surprised?

Not at all, except that the rookie was Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and not Danica Patrick. The way things had been going with Danica since Daytona, and the way everyone was talking, you kinda expected her to finish 44th in a 43-car field. Since Daytona isn’t an accurate barometer, ignore Danica’s eighth-place showing in the season opener — her 12th-place finish at Martinsville was easily her best NASCAR effort yet.

And on the other side of the coin …

There’s so much focus on Tony Stewart’s early-season struggles, no one seems to notice how deep in the tank Martin Truex Jr. has fallen. Last year, he was strong from start to finish and was a surprise Chase qualifier, which naturally meant he became a trendy pick for 2013. So much for trends. He has just one top-10 finish and sits 25th in points. He’s three spots behind Stewart, and best we can tell, Stewart has been mistakenly driving a ‘95 Caprice all year.

Sticking with the slump theme, what happened to Kevin Harvick?

Danica wrecks Dale

It wasn’t that long ago that Harvick was winning a couple of preseason exhibition races at Daytona (the “Sprint Unlimited” and a 150mile “qualifier”) and taking shots at those who suggested he’s a lame duck this year. Well, guess what: He’s been quacking ever since. Granted, he’s still above water, sitting 14th in points, but just one top-10 (a ninth) through six races isn’t what he was hinting at in February.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. had a rough weekend. Not only did his No. 88 Chevrolet not run very well at Martinsville, but he was booted off the course late in the race by Danica Patrick, who surprised all by finishing 12th. Earnhardt wound up 24th and lost the points lead to Johnson, his teammate at Hendrick Motorsports. As for Patrick, she was elated. It was her best showing since her eighthplace finish in the Daytona 500. “It was a nice day for us,” said Patrick, who was the highest-finishing rookie driver. “It was nice to have a good weekend. We’ve had quite a few bad ones since Daytona. So,

WINNER: Dale Earnhardt Jr. REST OF THE TOP FIVE: Clint Bowyer, Kurt Busch, Kyle Busch Brad Keselowski DARK HORSE: Bobby Labonte BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT:

Joey Logano FIRST ONE OUT: Scott Speed DON’T BE SURPRISED IF: Earnhardt’s win isn’t the only one he gets in April. Pay no attention to his Martinsville performance.



Kevin Harvick vs. Brian Vickers: They made contact on the last lap of Sunday’s Martinsville race, then Vickers dinged Harvick’s Chevy on pit road. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “Harvick has to remember that Vickers will be driving the No. 11 at Texas this weekend and not the No. 55 he wheeled at Martinsville.”

Casey Mears -85 Denny Hamlin -86 “There was no outside groove whatsoever, and that really Kurt Busch -87 hurt on the restarts. Everybody really wanted the bottom, Marcos Ambrose -87 but we still finished in the top 10, so I’m pretty happy about Mark Martin -95 that.” Tony Stewart -96 Ryan Newman -97 Marcos Ambrose (Finished 8th) Jeff Burton -100 Talk about your race.
