‘GREASE’ IS A WELL-OILED MACHINE Iola High students put own spin on classic show By ALLISON TINN

allison@iolaregister.com

Iola High School students have some big shoes to fill with their production of “Grease” — they pull it off very well. With their own spin on the classic musical, they bopped till they dropped and sang doowop so well it makes you wonder if these are Iola students or if you have been transported to 1958 at Rydell High School. The musical wouldn’t be complete without some dance sequences, which were choreographed by student Trilby Bannister, who also plays Frenchy. Bannister has done her homework. The students’ hand jive at the prom was performed flawlessly. Trilby added in some swing moves that had Olivia Bannister, playing Cha-Cha Di Gregorio, flipping in the air. The center of the stage is cleverly made to look like a jukebox with a band sitting at the top of it. The band had some classical musical numbers to play that will be sure to bring back fond memories to the older group in the audience, such as “Grease” by Frankie Valli, “It’s Raining on Prom Night,” “We Go Together,” and, of course, the iconic “Summer Nights.” The band is made up of Wyatt Prall, Garret Prall, Cody Cokely, Gerardo Rojas and band instructor Matt Kleopfer.

The songs and the dancing will make it next to impossible for the audience to keep their feet from tapping along. Libby Shay and Jordan Strickler do a great job at not only playing the roles of Sandy and Danny, but also belting out the songs everyone knows and loves.

Shay plays a great reserved Sandra Dee and an even better dolled-up Sandy at the end of the musical. Strickler, who had to spray his hair black to match the original Zuko look, is a suave and goofy Danny. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John would applaud

their performances. Grease wouldn’t be complete without the appearance of the Pink Ladies — Jan, Marty and Rizzo, played by Danielle Venter, Chanel Coyne and Audrea Stahl. Like any other students the ladies go through the trials and tribulations that come along with

high school — love, a little bullying and even a pregnancy scare. The ever-so-cool T-Birds — Doody, Roger, Kenickie and Sonny, played by Zach St. Clair, Jordan Garcia, Colton Schubert and Drew Smith — See GREASE | Page A4

SEK Multi County Health Department’s DeeDee Martin, chief nursing officer, and Sara Frederick, chief financial officer, look at their mission of serving residents of Allen and three adjoining counties in a proactive manner. That has resulted in them initiating programs, expanding what has been in place and looking ahead to when they can do even more to make local folks healthier. The Allen County office, 221 S. Jefferson Ave., where Martin and Frederick are stationed along with Clerk Ruby Gulick and Vicki Howard, Healthy Start Home visitor, is the flagship for Allen, Bour-

bon, Woodson and Anderson counties. Last October, planning and meetings began for a community health assessment to identify what is preventing residents from receiving appropriate health care. “We’re working to overcome those obstacles,” such things as lack of insurance, cost, proximity to where care is dispensed and services offered, Martin said. The health department isn’t going about the survey in lone-wolf fashion. “We’re working with the Southeast Kansas Mental Health Department, the (Allen County) hospital, Allen Community College and Thrive Allen County. “When we find holes in the health care system, we try to See HEALTH | Page A4

The St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church outreach program represents a small group of people in the community with big hearts, and an even bigger impact. The church, which hosts from 25 to 30 people on any given Sunday, has an outreach program that affects more than many in the community realize. “Wherever we find a need, we try to meet it,” said Sue O’Conner, an active member of the program. Those needs are met on three levels: locally, nationally and internationally. THE LOCAL aspect, a food backpack program for local elementary and middle school students, has evolved into a major part of Iola’s support for underprivileged children.

Jan Chubb, the pastor with the church, stood in the back of the church with dozens of plastic sacks filled with food for hungry children. Once a week, through the suggestion of the teachers, children’s backpacks are filled with food

for the weekend — until they return to school meals. “The food is delivered to children who are in danger of not eating for the weekend,” Chubb said. See CHURCH | Page A2

throughout the area. Jennie Masterson, who had special needs and utilized some of the services of Tri-Valley, passed away in 2007. “Jennie had touched a huge number of lives,” Georgia said. She said Jennie participated in in-home therapy many years back, and the family needed help from the community. She said nearly 500 people volunteered to help, and Jennie did the therapy — patterning — seven days a week. She said the overwhelming

support from the community eventually made a donation such as this one possible. “It’s really special,” Georgia said. “They had no computers.” John said he and his wife worked closely with Tri-Valley over the years, and they couldn’t stress enough how much its services were appreciated in the community. “The people are all very caring individuals,” he said. “They helped make our life more normal. “We’ve formed a special bond with Tri-Valley.”

This is the first of a monthly book review column Roger Carswell, director of Iola Public Library and Southeast Kansas Library System, will be doing. Carswell, originally from Quenemo, has been a librarian since 1981. He got his undergraduate degree from McPherson College and went on to get his master’s degree in library science from Emporia State University. He is a familiar face around town, he has lived in Iola since 1992. Carswell said the way he will choose books to review will be to is “mostly avoid the biggest best sellers because the people who are interested in those will already know what they are about,” he said. He will aim books that can be described well and that will generate interest. Carswell’s column will be at the middle of each month. His April picks are: “Family Pictures” by Jane Green

“Family Pictures” by Jane Green is the story of two women who rise to the occasion when they are thrown into crisis by the revelation of family

Roger Carswell

secrets. Told in alternating points of view, the first section introduces Sylvie’s family as she deals with her ill, demanding mother and other concerns. The next section shifts to Maggie, who lives on the other side of the country. Both have daughters on the cusp of adulthood, leaving them to face empty nests. When Sylvie’s daughter meets Maggie’s daughter, their two stories become intertwined. It’s not an uncommon device in novels for a character to have to face the question of whether a spouse is really who you believed him or her to be. Jane Green handles the question well, and readers will cheer how these two women overcome trauma by taking stock and reinventing themselves. “Six Years” by Harlan Coben

Harlan Coben is a highly popular suspense writer who mostly avoids

what can be the crutch of writing mostly in a familiar series. That’s not to say he avoids series fiction entirely; he has written the Myron Bolitar and Mickey Bolitar series. But his best and most gripping thrillers tend to be stand-alones. So it is with “Six Years.” Jake Fisher had his heart broken six years before the opening of “Six Years” when, after an idyllic three months with Natalie, she stunned him by marrying someone else. At her wedding to Todd, Natalie asked Jake to leave her and her new husband alone and never see them again. Jake has thrown himself into his work since then, but never gotten over Natalie. When he sees Todd’s obituary, he can’t help going to the funeral, hoping to take up with Natalie again. Jake does see Todd’s widow — but it’s not Natalie. The widow has been married to Todd and has teenage children with him. When Jake tries to find Natalie, he encounters a dead end. No one knows her, some of their mutual friends don’t know Jake, and the artist colony where they met does not exist. He encounters beatings and worse as he pursues his

quest to locate Natalie. “Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story” by Joni Eareckson

Many know the story of Joni Eareckson. She was left a quadriplegic by a diving accident at the age of 17. As detailed in her book, Joni has since forged a successful Christian ministry to the disabled. Joni and Ken Tada have been married for more than 30 years. Joni and Ken have now collaborated with Larry Libby to write “Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story,” telling the story of their relationship. It is a story of commitment and devotion despite hardships and obstacles unimaginable to most married couples. Tada found himself in many ways relegated to being a peripheral character, not only by Joni’s fans but also by her staff and, at times it seems, even by Joni herself. Despite frustrations, depression, and the physical labor involved in caring for a handicapped spouse, Tada is determinedly committed to his wife. Interestingly, Joni reveals that while they “loved each other,” they did not fall “in love” until nearly three decades into their marriage.

H Church Continued from A1

She said the need in the community is greater than many people see, as many children have nothing to eat when they are at home. “People are proud,” O’Conner said. “And they don’t want to have to ask for food.” On average, the church, along with help from Sonic Equipment, fill about 110 backpacks per week for students at Lincoln, Jefferson, McKinley and Iola Middle schools. In addition to the backpack program, there is a bucket full of food in the church that can feed a family of four at any given time. O’Conner said oftentimes the bucket goes out to families three times a week. “The cost of living these days is outrageous,” she said. ON A NATIONAL level, the church has adopted an Episcopal church in New Jersey that was “swept out to sea” by Hurricane Sandy. “The bishop’s chair was found seven blocks away after the storm,” O’Conner said. St. Timothy’s has taken the church under its wing, and supports it in any way possible. Joyce Roath, along with other members, have been sending stuffed bears

with sunflower bandanas wrapped around their heads — along with a gift card to different businesses, like Home Depot and other home improvement stores. “We are not deciding what they need, they decide what they need,” Chubb said. Over the Christmas break, Chubb said the church sent cookies and candy from Russell Stover. Also, it is sending Heart of the Home baskets for those who are starting to repair their homes and move back in. The baskets include some of the items needed on an everyday basis, from extension cords to toothbrushes and ashtrays. By the end of the month, church members will have sent a dozen baskets. “We had a woman who kept a list of all of the items she touched over the course of a week, then she went to Walmart and bought them,” O’Conner said. Chubb laughed and said many of the church members in New Jersey were confused when they started receiving support from Kansas, thinking “who do we know in Kansas?” Through assistance from the Episcopal Church’s national office, the Iolans were put in a position to assist those

affected in the devastated area. “We told them that ‘you don’t know us, but you are going to know us,’” Chubb said. THE

reach extends to Africa as well, through its “Kansas 2 Kenya” program, or K2K. Chubb said the church is working with a small village in Kenya, communicating through the pastor at the Anglican Church. “These people have cell phones, but don’t have any latrines,” Chubb said. She said the village is on the AIDS highway, and many of the women are forced into a life of prostitution. She said her husband has been to Kenya to help in the construction of new homes, which she said was an “eye opener” for him. He is an engineer. ALL THREE of these branches of St. Timothy’s outreach program have had a profound effect on the community, and Chubb said she believes it is an essential duty of any church, no matter the size. “I think it’s impor-

tant,” Chubb said. “Churches need to have some impact on the community, not just the people that come on Sundays.” Most of the outreach programs are funded through community dinners that St. Timothy’s has organized for the past seven years. O’Conner said the church does not see a “red cent” of the money gathered through the dinners. “We have seen a phenomenal response since we’ve been cooking the dinners,” O’Conner said. “We usually run out of food at 5:15.” They begin serving the meals at 5 p.m. Chubb and O’Conner agreed that it doesn’t matter what size the church is — as long as people have desire to help, God will use them in the best way possible. They both laughed when asked how a church so small can have such a large impact, O’Conner just pointed up and said “with the help of the Big Guy.” “Yes we are small,” Chubb said. “But that doesn’t mean we can’t have a big impact.”

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Spellman puts fitness above sports program Alabama football. KU basketball. Texas A&M track and field. These athletic programs are a big part of their university’s identities, and as such provide a windfall of profits. Most colleges, however, don’t reap much benefit from their sports programs and in fact, athletic offerings are a drain on their budgets. Increasingly, institutions of higher education are culling specific sports from their athletic programs. In the past 10 years, nine Division I universities and colleges have dropped their football programs. It was in 1986, that Wichita State University dropped football. More and more, colleges are taking critical looks at their entire athletics departments and whether they are worth retaining. Such is with Spellman College, an all-women’s Division III college outside of Atlanta. Next week will be the last for its tennis program when it competes at the Great South Athletic Conference tournament. After that, the college will direct its $900,000 athletic budget elsewhere. Part of the reasoning for the departure was the disproportionate amount of students who benefited from the sports programs. At Spellman, only 80 of 2,100 students participated in collegiate sports, resulting in a big investment per athlete as compared to their fellow students. Another factor, maybe not as much at Spellman, but certainly at Division I schools, is the public outcry about the lower academic standards allowed for athletes. At the heart of that debate is athletes are given special preference to admission. Average SAT scores for student athletes at major universities are about 200 points below those of nonathletes. Helping Spellman administrators make the de-

cision were the departures of other schools from the Great South conference, meaning Spellman athletes would have to travel farther distances for competitions, not to mention adding additional sports to its offerings. Spellman’s antiquated facilities also would require major cash infusions to come up to par. Perhaps the tipping point was the administration’s realization that it was not serving its student body and its health care needs. As a historically all-black female college, Spellman alumnae were witnessing an alarming rate of early deaths due to diabetes, heart disease and other ailments linked to poor diet and lack of exercise. As an institution of higher learning, Spellman was failing at teaching its students how to live in a healthy manner. Its former NCAA-sanctioned gym, courts and fields were turned into venues for wellness programs that all students could enjoy. Fitness and intramural programs are taking a higher priority and lifelong activities such as golf, swimming, tennis, yoga and Pilates are being taught. All these programs are far and away less expensive to provide, as well as reach a wider audience. The savings from disbanding its athletic program may even trickle down to the classroom. But let’s not get carried away. FOR

schools, sports are a lucrative business. K-State’s Bill Snyder has a five-year contract worth $14.75 million. KU’s Bill Self brings down $4.7 million a year. No doubt, they’ll both bring many times more than that to university coffers. But for the smaller fry, perhaps it’s time to rethink athletic departments and their true benefit to higher education. — Susan Lynn

Immigration enforcement is key Americans are naturally suspicious of any immigration plan that promises to stop undocumented workers in the future while granting normal status to those already here. There’s good reason for that suspicion. The last major overhaul of immigration law, in 1986, granted amnesty with little enforcement. Within 20 years, the number of people in the United States illegally had swelled from 3 million to 11 million. That failure helped torpedo a fresh effort, six years ago, to fix the nation’s broken immigration system. And it explains why enforcement is the linchpin to the latest effort, announced Tuesday by a bipartisan group of eight senators. Like the failed effort of 2007, the new measure would enhance efforts to stem illegal immigration while creating an arduous route to citizenship for the estimated 11 million. The “Gang of Eight” plan also changes rules for legal immigration and creates a guest-worker plan for labor-intensive industries that have relied on undocumented workers. All these elements are im-

portant, but enforcement is the key. Politically, it is needed to get a law passed. Practically, it is needed to ensure that today’s 11 million aren’t followed by another 11 million. Evidence from the past few years suggests that better enforcement is already having an impact. Demographers have been struck by the rapid decline in illegal immigration as Washington has beefed up its presence on the Mexican border and increased deportations. Also playing a part: the soft economy in the United States and the declining birth rates in Latin America. The proposal released Tuesday includes a number of enforcement targets to be met before undocumented workers could apply for permanent residency: • It would require that all of the border with Mexico be under surveillance and that law enforcement agencies apprehend at least 90 percent of those trying to cross illegally in areas designated as “high risk.” The most dubious part of the plan would provide $1.5 billion for more fencing, which has proved to be something of a boondoggle. But if

this one-time expense is the price of comprehensive immigration overhaul, so be it. • It would take on the most promising area of enforcement by cracking down on illegal immigration at the workplace. Employers would be required to participate in E-Verify, a federal program that matches a prospective employee’s Employment Eligibility Verification form, or I-9, with government records. Currently, the program is voluntary, though some states require it. • It would require a better system to track visitors to the U.S. For all the attention on border crossings, as many as 45 percent of the undocumented population enter the country legally, then simply overstay their visas. This kind of multipronged assault on illegal immigration is necessary to prevent the tide from picking up again once the economy improves. The Gang of Eight plan will undoubtedly undergo changes as it wends through the legislative process. But it’s a good starting point for addressing one of the nation’s most vexing problems. — USA Today

We must preserve the land By JOHN SCHLAGECK Kansas Farm Bureau

Forty-three years ago, when folks in the U.S.A. celebrated the first Earth Day, I was stationed in Stuttgart, West Germany — the country was still divided then. Back then I had little opportunity to carry signs that championed the abstract idea of protecting something as vast as our planet. Heck, I didn’t even hear about Earth Day until I returned a couple years later Instead, I was busy marching with a rifle in Western Europe — doing my small part to keep our planet and my country safe from the Russkies so my buddies back home could celebrate the first Earth Day for me. Well, guess what? Four decades later, I’m a writer and I’d like to share my thoughts with readers throughout Kansas and the Midwest as I pen this week’s column on Earth Day 2013, to be celebrated Monday. Protecting our planet can be somewhat of a struggle. Like each day’s sunrise and sunset, we often take it for granted. Conservation of our planet can be a challenge because some regard the land as a commodity that belongs to them. Others see the planet as a community to which they belong. They love, care for and respect the land. They adhere to an ethic that enlarges the boundaries of their commu-

nity to include soils, waters, plants and animals. There is no other way for land to survive the impact of mechanized man. Let us never forget that while our land yields fruits, grains and vegetables, it also yields a cultural harvest; one we as inhabitants all share and must nurture. The late Aldo Leopold, who championed the conservation ethic more than 70 years ago, defined it as a state of harmony between men and the land. In his book “A Sand County Almanac,” Leopold urged us to strive for such harmony and make sure our words do not override our work. Let’s make sure our progress does not consist of “letterhead pieties and convention oratory,” Leopold cautioned. Taking this one step further, let’s make certain our educational and economic systems are headed toward, rather than away from, an increased consciousness of the land. Today only a handful of our population makes its living from the land — primarily farmers and ranchers. Most people are separated from the land by several generations.             Few have a vital relation to the land. To many, the land is the space between cities on which crops and grass grow or cattle graze. “Turn him loose for a day on the land and if the spot does not happen to be a golf links or a scenic area, he is bored stiff,” Leopold wrote. “If crops

could be grown by hydroponics, instead of farming it would suit him well. Synthetic substitutes for wool, leather, wood and other natural land products suit him better than the originals. In short, land is something he has outgrown.” As we celebrate Earth Day on Monday, let’s remember land use is not solely an economic question. Let’s think of it in terms of what is ethically and aesthetically right, as well as what is economically expedient. Leopold said, a thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the living community. It is wrong when it does otherwise.        The bulk of all land usage hinges on investments of time, forethought, skill and faith, rather than only capital investment. We have continually modernized our farms with equipment, plant food, insecticides and other production inputs. We are proud, as well we should be with the abundance of crops we produce in Kansas and across our country. We can never throw away the tools, technology and stewardship that have provided so much for so many. On this Earth Day 2013 let’s renew our commitment to their successful use in harmony with our life-giving land. Let’s display for all to see we have not outgrown the land. Schlageck is a leading commentator on agriculture.

patch them,� Martin added. Martin and Frederick also are making efforts to attract new services, such as through grants with which they would deal with licensing of child care providers and WIC (women, infants and children) services, now provided in Allen and Bourbon counties by the Crawford County office. Child care licensing is watched over by offices in other counties. If a grant from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment comes Allen County’s way, it would provide funding for the local staff to help with applications for child care providers, maintain a list of licensed child care providers and make available nutrition and policy education. WIC, funded by the federal government, is a special supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children. The program provides supplemental foods, health care referrals and nutrition education for low-income pregnant, breastfeeding ad nonbreastfeeding postpartum women, as well as infants and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk. FOR THE GENERAL

population, the health center now offers blood

testing, although at this time it is unable to bill private insurance or Medicaid for those services. Cash, debit card, check and credit card payments are accepted. For example, hemoglobin A1C tests for diabetics are done for $22. The test is for diabetics and gives a long-term overview of blood sugar levels while a finger-pricking test is a momentary analysis, Martin said. Comprehensive blood panels, done for $20, provide information on things that affect liver and kidneys, as well as sugar and proteins levels in the blood. Other tests report cholesterol numbers, pituitary function and readings that relate to menopause and infertility. For years the center has offered many other services. Family planning covers much, including Pap smears. Martin noted that the American College of Gynecologist has altered time frames for Pap smears. “Now, they recommend none before age 21� and unless there appears there might be a problem, one every three years instead of every year, she said. Other opportunities, all at a cost of $45, are breast examinations, lab work, blood pressure screening and, if desired, birth control prescriptions. Kan Be Healthy screenings are for Medicaid-eligible children up to age 18. They receive

full physicals, hearing and vision tests and lab work. Also, a new part of that program is fluoride varnish for children’s teeth to guard against decay. Healthy Start Home Visitor provides inhome visits for pregnant women and parents of newborns. During visits a worker gives parents resources and referrals for various assistance programs. Immunizations are given every Monday from 9 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. at the Iola office. Adult physicals are provided by a registered nurse for employment purposes, as well as for foster care and adoptions. Children’s physicals, including hearing and vision, are done for school, daycare, Headstart or preschool applications. Physicals required for athletic participation are not done. Physicals are done by appointment. For services where insurance applies, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicaid, and KANCARE — Sunflower, Amerigroup and United Healthcare — are accepted. Medicare also pays for some services. THE IOLA office is open 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and is closed on Fridays. The office telephone number is 620-365-2191.

Red Devils ready to induct next HOF class By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

to continue his schooling instead. He played at Oklahoma City University following his two years at ACC, where he broke 150 school and Midwestern City Conference offensive records and became a third-round draft pick of the San Francisco Giants.

Allen Community College’s storied baseball history will be recalled with laughs, and most likely a few tears Saturday. The Red Devil Diamond Club will induct six new members into its hall of fame: longtime head coach Val McLean; Joe Haynes, the school’s first baseball coach; two members of the school’s 1983 NJCAA World Series team, Duane Wales and Rod Rush; Richard Thomas, an All-American from the Red Devils’ 1990 squad; and the late Rich Weisensee, who starred with the 1977 and 1978 teams. Many of the attendees will attend the Red Devils’ baseball doubleheader against Neosho County, starting at noon. Last year’s inductees will be introduced between the games. Tickets for the 6:15 p.m. banquet are on sale through Allen’s school website — my.allencc. edu/RDBanquet.aspx — and will be available at the door. AS MEMBERS of the 1983 World Series team, Wales and Rush already are HOF inductees in one aspect — the entire team was a part of the inaugural class last spring. Wales was a prototypical slugger for the 1983 team. An Ohio native, Wales was keyed to Allen after talking with a Philadelphia Phillies scout while he was still

in high school. He was a smashing success — literally — as the team’s designated hitter. As a freshman, Wales broke Allen records for hits (88), home runs (17) and RBIs (86), while helping the Red Devils

claim a division title. The accolades grew from there. He broke his own team record for hits as a sophomore with 92 and pounded 25 home runs, still a team record, with 88 RBIs. Rush starred as a cen-

ter fielder. The Lawrence native was a multi-sport standout in high school. While with Allen, he was drafted twice in the same year — by the Phillies in the winter draft and by the New York Yankees in the spring draft — but chose

WEISENSEE remains the school’s single-season record holder for batting average. “I’ll never forget my years at ACC,” he was quoted as saying in a Facebook post published by the Diamond Club. “Academically, my professors prepared me not only for the rest of my educational career, but also for my business career and my personal life. Playing baseball at ACC were the ‘best’ years in my entire athletic career starting out in Little League. I will cherish the times I spent with my teammates and coaches always!” Weisensee was one of five Shawnee Mission West High classmates who enrolled at Allen for the 1976-77 season. He started at shortstop and batted .406 his freshman year and .491 his sophomore season, which still ranks first in ACC history. “I just remember the camaraderie with everybody on the team,” he told the Register in a telephone interview in February. Weisensee was part of a 1978 squad that went 33-6, which also ranks

first in school history. After earning an associate degree at ACC, Weisensee played at Missouri Southern State College in Joplin, where he again started at shortstop for the Lions. He was voted team MVP at MSSC in 1980 and led the team in batting with a .444 average. He was inducted into the Missouri Southern Athletic Hall of Fame in 2007. Weisensee died March 19, almost a year to the day after he was diagnosed with leukemia. THOMAS, a Topeka native, batted .400 with 49 RBIs and 57 stolen bases in 1991, still a school record, in his sophomore season. Thomas started as a middle infielder before moving full time to third base early in his sophomore campaign to help the team defensively. He then played at the University of Arkansas and in the Florida Marlins minor league system. HAYNES HELPED get the ACC program off the ground in the NJCAA in 1971, the first year he arrived at Allen to teach in the business department. With only a partially completed field, and with no budget and only Spartan equipment, Haynes’ teams enjoyed moderate success over the three years he coached. “I’m sure I’m being recognized for helping get it going, and not See HALL | Page B4

ACC sweeps past Fort Scott Allen Community College’s softball team broke a nine-game losing streak with a bang Tuesday, steamrolling past visiting Fort Scott 10-8 and 18-4. A six-run fourth inning did the trick in the opener. Annie Gentry drilled an RBI triple while Kaitlin Rash and Bailey Burnett had runscoring singles in the frame. Paige Rothwell drilled an RBI double in the second inning, while Mary Reilly and Lauren Poertner drove in runs on errors in the bottom of the sixth. Audra Nelson was in control from the pitch-

ing circle, giving up just four hits. She walked four and struck out three. Gentry had a triple, Rothwell a double and Rash, Burnett and Kaylee Lucas with singles. The third inning told the tale in the second game. Already leading 5-0, the Red Devils sent 18 batters to the plate in the frame, scoring 13 times on eight hits. Poertner’s basesclearing triple was the big blow, while Bailey Ericson drove in two runs with a single. Gentry had an RBI triple in the frame, while Shayla

Stephens drove in two with a single, Stormy Bush drove in a run with a walk. Reilly had a pair of RBI doubles. Nelson started, giving up four hits and a walk with two strikeouts over three innings. Rash pitched two innings, giving up two hits and a walk. Gentry went 3-for4 with a triple, while Maecy Charleston had two singles. Rielly went 3-for-3 with two doubles. Poertner singled and tripled. Norris had two singles. Ericson and Katelyn Pedrow also singled. The Red Devils will host St. Louis Community College Saturday.

MVJH track squads golden YATES CENTER — Spearheaded by Kyla Drake and Makayla Brooks, Marmaton Valley Junior High’s track and field squads took home plenty of gold Tuesday. The Wildcat eighthgrade girls team won their division, while the seventh-graders took second in theirs behind Eureka. “It was a great job by both girls teams today,” Wildcat assistant track coach Scott Brady said. “We had girls getting us points in basically every event for both grades, which gives our teams a great chance to win meets.” Drake earned three golds and a silver on the eighth-grade side;

Brooks did the same thing for seventh grade. Drake took first in the high jump, clearing 4 feet, 6 inches; in the 200-meter dash in 30.5 seconds; and as a member of the medley relay team with NaLea Alexander, Magie Stevenson and Misty Storrer with a time of 2 minutes, 21.77 seconds. She earned silver in the 100-meter dash in 13.98 seconds. Brooks, meanwhile, won the seventh-grade 100 at 14.24 seconds, the 200 at 31.08 seconds and as a member of the 4x100-meter relay team with Emily Smart, Clara Boyd and Shayla Brooks, with a time of 1:02.38. Her silver medal came in the 400-meter dash, finishing in 1:15.39.

Shelby Yoho won the 1600-meter run for the seventh grade, finishing in 7:02.17. Megan Ensminger, Yoho, Boyd and Smart teamed to win the seventh-grade medley at 2:33.5. Casey Allen won the 1600 on the eighth-grade side at 6:57.58, as did Misty Storrer in the 400 at 1:16.73. Trevor Wilson’s long jump of 14’8” was good to win the seventh-grade boys division. “As usual, it was extremely cold but even with the low temperatures, some of our kids were able to set new personal bests at the meet,” Davis said.

Coons signs with Allen By RICHARD LUKEN

richard@iolaregister.com

Mason Coons had more than one decision to make when deciding where to continue his education. The Iola High senior also had to decide what sport to pursue. Coons enrolled Wednesday to attend Allen Community College in the fall on a baseball scholarship.

“It was very difficult, probably one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make,” Coons said in picking baseball over football. “I love football, but baseball has always been my passion.” Once he decided on a sport, Coons found it somewhat easier to pick the Red Devils, even though he was recruited to play base-

ball and football at several universities in the state. “There were some NAIA schools looking at me, places like that,” he said. Coons ultimately chose Allen because of its coaching staff with longtime head coach Val McLean at the helm. See COONS | Page B4

Another tactic against pilonidal cysts DEAR DR. ROACH: The article about the boy suffering after surgery for three years from a pilonidal cyst really hit home. My son developed a pilonidal cyst in June 2012 and also had a very bad infection from it. The surgeon refused to operate while he was infected. The cyst was just gross -- so much blood and other yuck. Finally, the surgeon gave up and operated at the end of September since we couldn’t get rid of the infection. He had to cut out a lot of tissue in order to not cut across anything infected. For a month, he was healing great. Then two more holes appeared. We were heartbroken -- my 17-year-old son, having

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health what probably seemed like everyone looking at his private area, unable to heal and unable to cycle or swim. The reason I’m writing is to please ask you to pass on what finally helped him heal: laser hair removal! The surgeon told us that every “problem” patient he had sent for hair removal had finally healed, and it truly has been a blessing. By the time he had his second laser session (two months), it was obvious that the wounds were closing up. We

were there today for the fourth session, and they are closed up! Removing the hair made all the difference in the world! Now we hope our son will be able to get back to his chosen sport — cycling! Please pass this on! — M.S. ANSWER: Thank you for passing on this helpful information. I have received a great deal of mail about this topic, so let me explain a little bit more about pilonidal cysts. “Pilonidal” means “nest of hair,” and a cyst is just a fluid-filled sac. They are most commonly found at the base of the spine, just above or within the cleft of the buttocks. Prolonged sitting and sweating seem to pre-

dispose some to getting this condition. Hair is commonly a problem with pilonidal cysts, with hair and debris often found by the surgeon at the time of removal. They can become infected, and many times, this is how they are discovered. One reader, a nurse, found crystals inside a pilonidal cyst and had success with Regranex, a medication used to help heal diabetic ulcers. Another reader recommended a surgeon who performed a surgery called a “cleft lift” procedure, which reduces risk of recurrence. The Pilonidal Support Alliance offers a wealth of information and support. You can find it on the Web at www.pilonidal.org.

H Coons Continued from B1

He’s joining classmates Aaron Barclay and Levi Ashmore in signing with the Red Devils this spring. He’ll join former schoolmates Clint Heffern, Braden Larson, Jarred Latta, Jerrik Sigg and Drew Walden. “It’s pretty cool to get to play like that with guys I grew up with,” he said. Coons is playing several positions this season with the Mustangs but will play primar-

ily first base with Allen. He’s batting .429 this season with 17 runs, 11 hits and eight RBIs in 10 games. He leads Iola with five doubles and is 5-for-5 in stolen bases. He’s also racked up a 4-0 record with a 3.86 ERA. His 24 strikeouts rank second on the team. As a junior, Coons batted .452 with 24 RBIs while going 2-1 with a 4.20 ERA on the mound. He batted .310 as a sophomore and .286 as a freshman. “Mason’s got a great body for baseball,”

McLean said. “We like his potential. And it’s always good to sign local talent with a lot of ability.” Coons has been a standout on the football field and basketball court as well. He’s played all three sports all four years of high school. Coons also has starred in the classroom, maintaining a 3.97 gradepoint average at IHS. He plans to study premed at ACC. Coons is the son of Iolans Vince and Pam Coons.

NAME

has become synonymous with Allen’s legacy on the diamond. He’s coached at ACC for the past 37 years, having taken over the job at age 23. He has recorded the most NJCAA wins among all active coach-

es — his all-time record a 1,149 wins compared to 725 losses — and was a 2006 NJCAA Hall of Fame inductee in 2006, the first Kansas coach to earn the honor. He has taken the Red Devils to the NJCAA World Series twice, in 1983 and 2000. “Our 1983 team probably would have won it if they had a better coach,” he said modestly. “There’s no doubt that we had the most talented team there that year.”

McLean’s teams have won the Jayhawk Conference seven times, the Eastern Regionals seven times and developed 10 All-Americans, 56 allregion and 89 all-conference players. Forty-eight players have signed professional contracts out of Allen. McLean has sent more than 500 players on to four-year schools. He also remains director of guidance at Allen. He holds a doctorate in counseling psychology.
