‘We believe this to be a terrorist’ Police activities center in Watertown; second suspect possibly found By BOSTON HERALD STAFF

BOSTON — One suspected Boston Marathon bomber was killed early Friday morning and as of Friday evening police were hunting the other in Watertown, Mass., after the suspects killed an MIT police officer and wounded a Massachusetts Bay Trans-

We believe this to be a terrorist. We believe this to be a man who came here to kill people. — Ed Davis, Boston Police Commissioner

portation Authority officer in a wild chase that involved explosives and gunfire, authorities said. “We believe this to be a terrorist,” Boston police Commissioner Ed Davis said. “We believe this to be a man who came here to kill people.” All of Boston, Watertown, Cambridge, Newton, Waltham and Belmont are under a “shelter-in-place” order, with orders for all residents to stay home with doors locked. Do not open the

door for anyone other than a licensed law enforcement officer, said Gov. Deval Patrick. The entire MBTA system has been shut down. SWAT teams, machine guns drawn, were going door-to-door in Watertown. Blood was found behind one building and a police chemist was testing it. The suspects were identified to The Associated Press as coming from the Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency stemming from separatist wars. A law enforcement intelligence bulletin obtained by the AP identified the surviving bomb suspect as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old who had been living in Cambridge, just outside Boston, and said he “may be armed and dangerous.” A man who described himself as an uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Maryland, said the suspects are brothers who have been in the country since 2001. When his wife showed him the picture of the suspects, he was “shaking.” “Anger, anger, anger. I can’t come up with the words,” Tsarni said when asked for his response to the terrorist attacks his nephews are acSee MANHUNT | Page A3

Battling poverty, one family at a time Fax prompts investigation By SUSAN LYNN susan@iolaregister.com

It’s one thing to know about poverty and its effects. It’s another thing to do anything about it. Georgia Masterson is ready to turn the talk into action. Masterson has a background of working with families in need. Earlier this year she retired from the Department of Children and Families, formerly SRS, after 28 years. The first half of her service she worked as a case worker at the Iola office determining clients’ eligibility for

food stamps, cash assistance and Medicaid services. The last 15 years she’s worked as a supervisor at the Chanute office. While with social services, Masterson taught classes that followed Ruby Payne’s “Bridges out of Poverty,” methods of helping people stuck in poverty learn ways to better relate to the broader world and on the flip side, helping people understand the lives of those who live in poverty. “The biggest factor in getting people out of poverty is for them to have a relation-

ship with somone not in poverty who can serve as a role model,” Masterson said. It’s that relationship that Masterson hopes to foster by bringing the Circles Campaign to Allen County. Circles pairs “leaders,” — those who want to take the initiative to get out of poverty — with “allies,” — those who live successful lives. Masterson shies away from using the term “mentor,” because these people don’t necessarily “have the answers,”

An investigation is under way as the result of a letter faxed to law enforcement and area media, including the Register, signed by Michael W. McGregor, Fort Scott. At the start, McGregor states: “I, Michael Walter McGregor, being neither of sound mind nor body hereby forgive the city of Colony for all its sins committed against me, my animals and

against my GOD and savior.” Later in the letter, McGregor wrote: “And I offer this friendly advice, which by no means do you have to take.

Explosives rigged to destroy mailboxes By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

Two mailboxes near homes five miles northeast of LaHarpe were destroyed early Thursday morning by crude bombs that exploded inside each. Allen County Sheriff Bryan Murphy said that while the explosions were thought to be the work of vandals, he had contacted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the federal agency that investigates 75 Cents

such things, as well as postal authorities. “Acts such as these can’t be tolerated,” he said. “If a mail carrier or the owner had been near either one when they exploded, there very likely would have been injuries.” Injuries could have been severe, particularly with the plastic box, said Deputy Daren Kellerman, who did on-scene investigations of See MAILBOXES | Page A3

ONE ENERGY COMPANY ALL FOR YOUR SAFETY. For clean-burning, efficient natural gas, more than 630,000 customers each day rely on Kansas Gas Service. And we are committed to keeping you and your family safe by providing natural gas safety tips. If you smell a rotten egg-like odor or hear a hissing sound, leave your home. Since natural gas is odorless and colorless, we added an unpleasant scent to help warn you of a natural gas leak. If you think you have a leak, do not use any electrical devices, such as a light switch, garage door opener or telephone, which could ignite a fire or cause other hazardous conditions. Leave your home immediately and use a telephone away from the area to call 911 or Kansas Gas Service at 1-888-482-4950. If you see yellow flames instead of blue flames from your natural gas appliance burners, service your appliances. A yellow flame is a warning sign that natural gas isn’t burning efficiently, which can increase the potential for carbon monoxide poisoning and higher fuel bills. For safety and efficiency, check all your natural gas appliances regularly to make sure the burner flame is blue, have your appliances serviced once a year by a qualified heating and cooling contractor, keep air intake areas clear around appliances, regularly clean or replace heating system air filters and check your flue and chimney for proper ventilation. If you have unexplained headaches, dizziness, excessive perspiration, fatigue or nausea, check your home’s carbon monoxide levels. Auto exhaust, blocked chimney flues and improper combustion in your furnace or water heater can cause increased levels of carbon monoxide, which can result in serious injury or death. If you believe carbon monoxide is present, call 911 from a telephone away from the area and your local fire department will respond and test your home’s carbon monoxide levels. If you see blowing dirt, persistent bubbling in standing water or unexplained discoloration of vegetation, leave the area. These may be signs of a natural gas leak. Leave the area immediately and call 911 or 1-888-482-4950 to report the possible leak. If you need to dig, always call 811 two days prior. Before you dig, excavate, plant trees or set fence posts, know what’s below.

Those kids grew up around violence. They were always not scared of anything. — Ahdi Moro, Friend of the suspects

cused of. “Unhuman.” A man who described himself as a friend of the suspects, Ahdi Moro, 22, of Watertown, said the two attended Cambridge Rindge & Latin School. He said the older brother was a Golden Gloves boxer who is now the father of a 2-year-old and Dzhokhar was an all-star wrestler. “He was a really quiet kid,” Moro said. “He was very popular at school, like, the most popular kid at school. He was a really good-looking kid. He’s as American as anybody. He grew up here. He’s like a regular Cambridge kid.” He said the older brother was big and tough, and remembered how, on the first day of school, he was “picked on” by three kids — and beat up all three. “These kids grew up around violence,” Moro said. “They were always not scared of anything.” State Police Col. Timothy Alben said the slain man was Suspect No. 1 in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings and the man police are seeking is Suspect No. 2, the man in the white hat seen in images released Thursday by the FBI. The fugitive was described as armed and dangerous, as police set a 20-block perimeter bordered by Arsenal Street and Mount Auburn Avenue. All vehicular traffic has been banned in Watertown. The chaotic, violent chain of events began with a report of shots fired on the MIT campus at about 10:20 p.m. Friday, according to a narrative released by

the Middlesex District Attorney’s office. At 10:30 p.m., an MIT campus police officer was found with multiple gunshot wounds in his vehicle near Vassar and Main streets. He was pronounced dead at Massachusetts General Hospital. Police then received reports of a carjacking at gunpoint by two men in the area of Third

Street in Cambridge. The driver was held in the car by the suspects for about a half hour before he was released unharmed at a gas station on Memorial Drive. Dozens of police who had converged on the initial MIT scene near Kendall Square after the shooting raced toward Watertown shortly before 1 a.m. Police had tried to pull over a carjacked vehicle, resulting in one suspect shot and 33-year-old MBTA officer Richard H. Donahue Jr. wounded. A manhunt was launched for the suspect who fled, with heavily armed SWAT teams and uniformed cops with their handguns drawn spreading through the area. One suspect was critically injured in the course of the chase and died in a local hospital.

but will be a source of encouragement. People stuck in poverty tend to be “fatalistic,” Masterson said. “They feel they have been born to a life of poverty and can’t work their way out of it.” Circles’ goal for Allen County is to bring “one family at a time” out of poverty. POVERTY is widespread in Allen County. Almost 19 percent of area families live in poverty, compared to the state average of 13.8 percent. Almost 28 percent of our children live in poverty; compared to just shy of 19 percent statewide. Of area school children, almost 64 percent in USD 257 receive freeor reduced-priced lunches, compared to the state average of 40 percent. A minimum wage these days is not a living wage. For a single adult, the required annual income before taxes to keep your head above water is $16,628. If earning minimum wage, annual income is $13,094. “The cards are stacked against low-wage earners,” Masterson said. The industries that pay the lowest wages also stay away from paying benefits. “Too often, the general population is not aware of what lands and keeps people in poverty,” Masterson said. “They tend to think it’s their fault, that they are there by their own actions.” Irresponsible lending practices by loan sharks, disreputable landlords who take advantage of tenants, and a lack of understanding of how the world works in general all work against those

caught in the grips of poverty, Masterson said. The Circles Campaign helps teach emotional intelligence. “The mindset of someone in poverty is that they will work for someone only if they like that person,” Masterson said. “They think, ‘If I’m going to work for you, I’m going to like you.’ If things go bad with the boss, they walk out of the job. “A middle class employee, on the other hand, knows their livelihood depends on their job. So they learn to take criticism constructively, or learn to not take the criticism personally.” The Circles Campaign teaches participants how to construct a healthy mental attitude of what they want their lives to look like. Payne’s book, “Gettin’ Ahead in a Just Gettin’ by World,” is the guide for the upcoming workshops Masterson plans to kick off June 3. “When people have a clear mental model of how they want their lives to operate, it helps them achieve those goals,” Masterson said. MASTERSON, 65, entered the world of the underserved through a back door. She studied at Emporia State University to become a teacher, earning a degree in earth sciences, which she first taught in Emporia schools. When she and husband, John, moved to Iola, she taught biology at what was then Iola Junior High School. In 1976, she and John’s daughter, Jennie, was born and Georgia left the work force to take care of Jennie, who suffered severe birth defects. When Jennie began

Damaris Kunkler, left, and Georgia Masterson stand in the Thrive Allen County offices. school half-days, Georgia was approached by Georgia Rae Weast, director of Iola’s Social and Rehabilitative Services, to come work part-time. “They needed someone who had a college degree and who wanted to work part-time,” Masterson said. “The job opened my eyes to a whole other side of life,” she said. “I found out why my students in school were falling asleep in class or not getting their homework done. I was seeing the flip side of their lives, which were a mess.” “The training for Bridges out of Poverty gave me a whole new understanding of why those conditions existed, and what a chaotic, momentto-moment lifestyle these people live.” Circles includes an element of spirituality, Masterson said. “We believe in a higher power,” she said. People in poverty tend to be “much more fatalistic,” Masterson said, believing “We were born to this and can’t work our way out of it.” THE CIRCLES campaign will be a 12-16 week course pairing leaders and allies. Calvary United Methodist Church will host the meetings, which include child care and a meal.

Wesley United Methodist Church has volunteered to provide meals once a month. Masterson is hoping other area churches and groups will step up to the plate to also furnish meals as well as volunteer to watch children. It’s suggested volunteers with children bring their children to provide positive peers for the children of participants. The REACH Healthcare Foundation, Kansas City, is paying for the Circles program and Masterson’s position with about $66,000 in funding of a grant. Masterson said she still needs participants on both sides of the aisle, those suffering in poverty as well as leaders wanting to work with them. For more information, contact Masterson at 3658128, or visit the Thrive Allen County office, 12 W. Jackson, where Masterson has an office.

The other box, made of metal, was ripped loose and thrown about 30 feet by the explosion. The explosions appeared to be caused by drain cleaner bundled with crumpled aluminum foil. Chemicals in many drain cleaners

Murphy said his officers have developed several leads in the case, including a description of a vehicle that was seen in the area when the explosions occurred. Anyone having information about the incidents is encouraged to contact the sheriff ’s office, 365-1400, or the dispatch center at 911.

H Dinner Continued from A1 services to USD 257’s after school program. Brownback will be at the dinner to recognize second- through fifthgrade SAFE BASE students who have utilized

the iPads to improve their academics. Miguel Epting, SAFE BASE student, said he was excited about the visit because he “has never seen the governor before.”

March unemployment up slightly for March By JOHN MILBURN

Associated Press TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Unemployment rose slightly in Kansas in March despite a drop of more than 1,300 applications for initial unemployment benefit claims. The Kansas Department of Labor reported late Thursday that the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate rose from 5.5 percent in February to 5.6 percent in March. The rate was 5.8 percent in March 2012. Labor Secretary Lana Gordon said the monthly state report indicated that the Kansas job market remained more stable than the overall national picture. A labor economist says Kansas didn’t add as many jobs that it typically does in March. The private sector added 3,100 jobs, led by 1,800 new positions in construction and 1,400 jobs in leisure and hospitality. The trade, transportation and utilities sectors lost 1,800 jobs during March. “This muted tone was prevalent throughout the numbers, indicating a slowdown in momentum for the month,” said economist Tyler Tenbrink. The unemployment report will be considered in discussions Friday by members of a consensus revenue estimating panel that will calculate how much tax revenue Kansas can expect to collect over the next 18 months. The estimate will be used by legislators when they return May 8 to complete their work on the 2014 and 2015 state budgets and settle differences over a proposal by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback to make further cuts to tax rates. Initial claims for jobless benefits fell from 16,388 in February to 15,069 in March. The figure was also below the 17,997 initial claims filed in March 2012. There were some 128,000 people still receiving continued jobless benefits.

2013 Chevy Silverado 1500

More than 185,500 continuing benefits claims were paid in March 2012. Unemployment was highest in the eastern counties of the state, in particular southeast Kansas where several counties had rates in excess of 7 percent, led by Wilson County with 9.2 percent, Linn 8.7 percent, Labette 8.3 percent and Bourbon 8.2 percent. The lowest rates were in rural Kansas counties in the western half of the state. Sheridan County in northwest Kansas had the lowest rate in the state with 2.6 percent.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Boston lockdown: We all were there It must have been with great trepidation that FBI officials posted the video stills Thursday afternoon of the two suspects of the Boston Marathon Bombings. Surely, they would have preferred to handle the hunt without, a) public involvement, and b) the bombers knowing they had been identified and thus had a chance to either alter their images or go into hiding. But in testimony to how connected the world has become since the age of wireless technology, within hours of the postings, Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters were flooded with thousands of calls with possible tips including the video of the two brothers robbing a 7-Eleven store later that day. As of this writing, one of the suspects has been killed in a violent shootout with officers. The other was thought to be holed up in Watertown, a Boston suburb. My bet is his demise is not far off. Boston, again, was held hostage by the incident on Friday. Schools, shops, businesses were all ordered closed. People were warned not to answer their doors and go to their basements in case another gunfight erupt on city and residential streets as was the case late Thursday night when the older of the two broth-

Susan Lynn Register editor ers was killed in a shootout with officers. IT’S HOPED the remaining brother can be caught alive to help answer questions as to what prompted the two young men to plant the two bombs at the marathon’s finish line. Is there a connection to their homeland of Chechnya? Are they part of a broader movement or were they lone wolves? Were there others involved in Monday’s bombings? Is this the beginning of something bigger? Or were they, like the suspect who recently sent ricin-laced letters to President Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, desperate for their 15 minutes of fame at any cost. The whole story, from the race to its tragic ending, to now the hunt for the perpetrators, has held the country in its grip. There wasn’t any way for it to end without more tragedy. It’s my nature to find silver linings in the face of woe. This time, I’m left wanting.

U.S. debt clock

As of April 19, 2013, the U.S. debt is $16,813,898,066,513 The estimated population of the U.S. is 314,806,968. So each citizen’s share of the debt is $53,410. www.brillig.com

Health dictated by what we eat By the time Thursday’s Rotary Club program was well along, I was pleased that I chose to have a grilled chicken salad for lunch. Judy Works is president of the club and had arranged a program that was canceled an hour ahead of time. She had a back-up plan. Jamie Oliver, a British-born chef known for his campaign against processed foods in school lunchrooms and for efforts to encourage people to eat healthier, came the Rotarians’ way via an Internet clip. What he had to say wouldn’t sit well with the fast-food industry, families that eat on the go and school districts that let cost factors dictate what cooks prepare for kids to eat, often twice a day. America is one of the most unhealthy countries in the world because of the way we eat, he pronounced, noting the statistics were clear and our lives are being shortened by the landscape of food that’s laid before us. Americans aren’t alone. Diet-related disease is the biggest killer in the world, Oliver said. Obesity complicates the

body’s ability to function, often leads to heart disease and cancer, and is an outcome of both eating too much and not eating fresh and non-processed foods, Oliver said. A reminder of how much

At Week’s End Bob Johnson

sugar a child consumes in a year drinking milk with additives to suit kids’ tastes was made starkly evident when a wheelbarrow filled with sugar cubes was pushed on the stage where Oliver was speaking. Its load peaked well above the sides. Fast food has taken over on Main Street, with it full of additives and with disgraceful labeling that hides the fact it’s fattening, he said: “It says it’s low-fat but it full of sugar.” The culture of preparing healthy meals at home has disappeared in America, he

said. A woman, obviously overweight, sat in front of a table piled high with carbohydrate- and fat-laced foods, an example of what her chunky children had eaten the previous several weeks. About 31 million children eat school breakfasts and lunches each day. “Cooks are doing their best,” Oliver said, but composition of meals is dictated by accountants who are concerned about costs, and care not that kids are fed highly processed foods, entrees often consisting of sloppy joes and wieners. Oliver walked about a classroom, showing one vegetable and then another, distraught that most of the students had no idea what an eggplant, beet or even Irish Cobbler potato were. “We need to start cooking again at home,” Oliver said, with the suggestion healthy meals could be recreated if one person shared 10 healthy recipes with three people, those three shared with three others, and so on until the number reached into the millions.

Don’t cut creativity out of education By MICHAEL SMITH Insight Kansas

“The average graduate leaves with $22,000 in debt and a diploma which may or may not translate into a real-world job. This system would benefit from a discussion of return on investment.” — Rep. Marc Rhoades (R-Newton), chair of the Kansas House Appropriations Committee Liberal arts are on the chopping block. The president of the Florida state senate recently asked why state universities produce graduates “with degrees like political science, which don’t mean much.” I find that quip rather astonishing, given the way our program at Emporia State launches graduates into successful careers: public administration, law, education, political advocacy, and other fields. However, the quote above is not an isolated incident. Nationally, liberal arts are getting the boot in favor of “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields, which train students for some of today’s better-paying jobs. The U.S. Senate recently approved an amendment by Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) to slash National Science Foundation (NSF) funding for political science data-collection and research. Other fields are not safe, either. Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Kansas City native and

UMKC graduate, wonders, “Is it a vital interest of the state to have more anthropologists? I don’t think so.” CLOSER TO HOME, the Kansas House seeks a 4 percent cut in next year’s higher education budget. The Senate wants a 2 percent cut. And Gov. Brownback seeks a “flat” budget, at this year’s level. All three proposals leave university administrators no choice but to cut, in order to fund employees’ skyrocketing healthinsurance premiums. Have we forgotten that liberal arts students are major job creators? Consider a man named Jobs: Steve Jobs, the late co-founder of Apple Computer. Jobs attended, but never graduated from Reed College, an academically rigorous, very expensive private liberal arts college in Portland, Ore. Jobs felt guilty spending his parents’ life savings, so he stopped enrolling in classes. He just sat in on his favorites, studying away. He had a particular fondness for calligraphy. These classes had no real-world relevance for an early-1970s corporate America of IBM machines and harddrinking “Mad Men.” Yet just a few years later, Jobs’ passion for design would transform our everyday lives and create thousands of new, private-sector jobs. State-supported universities offer such exploration at

affordable prices, so students don’t have to choose between exhausting their families’ life savings, or “dropping out and dropping in.” I went to college at Reed, and I am often reminded of my old school when teaching at Emporia State. ESU’s traditional curriculum features small classes taught directly by professors, intense reading and writing assignments, close advising, and deep class discussions. Where will all this be after budget cuts? Had Steve Jobs sought only job training, he might have learned to program mainframe computers in “C,” or configured punchcard readers. He would leave college to be a “jobs filler,” not a creator. He would have learned nothing about innovation, creativity, or seeing new possibilities. Technology would have eliminated the jobs for which he had trained, long before his untimely death. Yet Steve Jobs took a different path. He saw what did not yet exist and molded it into something real. This is the very definition of a jobs creator. No wonder that a 2010 report commissioned by the Kansas Board of Regents found this: every dollar invested in higher education yields an $11.92 return on investment. Is it in the vital interest of the state to offer such an education to its citizens? Yes, I think so.

Quotations of the day The Associated Press

“We believe this man to be a terrorist. We believe this to be a man who’s come here to kill people.” — Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis,

speaking about the Boston Marathon bombing suspect who is now the subject of an extensive manhunt. *****

“You’re strong through it because that’s your job. That’s what you’ve been trained to do. But you’re reminded of the tragedy and your family. And that it could be you. Then it’s a completely different story.” — Firefighter Darryl Hall, describing the search for bodies and survivors on the scene of a massive fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas.

Wallabies on the loose VIENNA (AP) — Volunteers are searching for a pair of wallabies hopping through Austria — yes, Austria. The kangaroo-like marsupials, which are smaller than “roos” and primarily found in Australia, escaped from a farm in the Upper Austrian countryside, northwest of Vienna. Thursday was the third day of the quest to find them. There are actually three

wallabies on the loose — owner Gabrielle Schrammel says the female has a joey in her pouch. Austrians often express irritation at being confused for Australians while abroad, and mail meant for Australia occasionally surfaces in this central European Alpine country. Those Vienna souvenir shops selling T-shirts with the slogan “No kangaroos in Austria” might have to start a recall campaign.

Despite rumors, the Colony School was not locked down, Valentine said. Anderson County officers did go to Colony Friday afternoon, however, and Sheriff Valentine notified the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Inves-

tigation about the fax and its contents. He pointed out that state and federal agents had more latitude and facility to conduct investigations into such matters; “they know what to do.” Allen County Sheriff Bryan Murphy, at the request of Anderson County, drove to Colony and stood by while discussions about the letter were ongoing with school authorities. “I didn’t have a role, though,” Murphy said. “Just stood by and then left when they cleared the scene.”

You also get your meals and medicine as prescribed. The staff makes sure you have everything to meet your individual needs. When I first came to Windsor Place, I couldn’t even walk. I was in a wheelchair. I was so pleased to be able to walk out on my own last week and return to my own home.” Sandra Payne – Former Resident of Windsor Place Sandra Payne has quite a bit of experience with Windsor Place.

Iolan narrowly misses All-American status at wrestling tourney

PLAY BALL!

While storms and cold weather earlier in the week forced some changes to the schedule, Iola and Humboldt’s baseball and softball teams and Yates Center’s softball squad still were able to get in plenty of action Friday. Above, Iola High’s Trent Latta fields a throw while Humboldt High’s Zach Vannata slides safely into third base. The Mustangs, otherwise, had things well in control, winning the first game of their doubleheader 16-2. At left, Yates Center High’s Allie Bruner, left, throws the ball to attempt a double play while Iola’s Katie Thompson reaches second base. The Wildcats won the opening game of the Lindsey Friederich Memorial Softball Tournament, 10-2. Humboldt’s softball team also was in the tournament, taking on Neodesha. Complete results of the softball and baseball action, as well as Iola’s tennis and track and field results from Friday, will be in Monday’s Register. Register/Richard Luken

DES MOINES, Iowa — Seth Sanford, an Iola Middle School eighth-grader, went 4-4 and finished one victory shy of earning All-American status at the AAU Middle School National Duals. Sanford was a member of Team Kansas, earning the designation for winning a state tournament at 189 pounds in March. Sanford’s team was dubbed Kansas Tin Man. Sanford opened pool play with a forfeit victory, then pinned Gus Cloud of Montana in 2 minutes, 41 seconds. He lost by pin to Tim Abee of North Carolina in 2:21. Sanford bounced back to defeat Michael Francis of Team ECCW with a pin in 2:06. He then fell to Triston Richardson of Iowa. He opened gold medal

bracket action by edging Ty Polson of Minnesota, 2-1, then pinning Skyler Powell of Montana in 36 seconds. He dropped his final match of the tournament, losing by pin to Bailey Thompson of Panhandle Extreme in 2:22. Kansas Tin Man took seventh, the first Kansas team to earn a top-10 finish in the tournament’s history. Despite his accomplishments, Sanford expressed disappointment. “I’m a little bummed,” he said, because he fell one win shy of being an All-American. “He’ll feel better about it as time goes on,” his mother, Penny Sanford, said. He is the son of Iolans Adam and Penny Sanford and has wrestled for the IMS and Allen County Wrestling Club teams.

IMS track teams contend with cold Soccer GIRARD — Amid miserable weather conditions, Iola Middle School’s track teams still brought home several medals for their efforts at the Girard Middle School Invitational. Buoyed by eighth-grader Braden Plumlee and seventhgrader Dalton Ryherd, the Ponies contended well with bitterly cold wind and soggy grounds that forced meet officials to call off all field events. Plumlee was a two-time gold medalist, winning the 1600- and 800-meter runs. Plumlee won the 1600 in 5 minutes, 22.2 seconds — 14 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor — and the 800 in 2:26.4. Chase Regehr was just behind in the 800, taking third with a time of 2:27. Ryherd, meanwhile, won the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 18.15 seconds, more than a second better than the runner-up. Isaac Vink finished fourth in the same event in 20.34 seconds. Iola’s Olivia Taylor took second in the seventh-grade girls 1600, finishing in 6:06.5. The Ponies fnished second and third in the 100-meter hurdles. Colbi Riley was second at 20.32 seconds, one-hundredth of a second qucker than Eliza Hale in third. The seventh grade also supplied one second-place and one third-place finish among the relays. The medley relay team of Carly Cescon, Hale, Riley and Taylor finished in second at 2:16, while the 4x100meter relay team of Ceston, Riley, Hale and Sophie Whitney finished in 1:02.2. As a team, the eighthgrade boys finished fifth with 37 points, one point behind fourth-place finisher Frontenac. Parsons took first overall with 89 points.

The seventh-grade boys accumulated 22 points, good for fifth. Pittsburg won with 88. The seventh-grade girls finished third with 47 points, behind Pittsburg’s 85 and Frontenac’s 52.

NFL announces 2013 schedules NEW YORK (AP) — Are you ready for some Peyton Manning? This year’s NFL schedule is filled with return visits and intriguing matchups, and some of the best involve the Denver Broncos’ quarterback. The former Colts star will make his first trip back to Indianapolis, will play younger brother Eli in another Manning Bowl, and will face the defending Super Bowl champions in the season opener. The Baltimore Ravens travel to Denver for the now-traditional Thursday night opener on Sept. 5. The Orioles are home that night and Major League Baseball could not move their game. So $121 million quarterback Joe Flacco and his fellow champs were sent to Denver — to face Manning and the team they beat in double overtime on their way to the Super Bowl. “It still bites on everybody,” Broncos receiver Eric Decker said. “It’s tough to kind of relive that game, especially the opportunities I think we left on the field. It’s going to definitely fire us going into this year.” New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, who spent 10 years as an assistant in Baltimore, seemed most interested in — and annoyed by — the Ravens being forced to kick off

the season on the road. “I think that the world champs can open up at home and that’s where I think they should open, at home,” Ryan said. “I think it is common courtesy. I don’t know what gets involved in that. I am not in charge of it, but if I would have been, the Ravens would be opening at home. “If baseball had only 16 games, I might understand it. But just as common courtesy maybe (the Orioles) say, ‘I’ll play this one on the road.” Just from a fan perspective of sports.” In Week 2, Peyton visits Eli’s house. Both Manning brothers often have said it’s uncomfortable yet memorable playing each other; it’s only happened twice, with Peyton and the Colts winning. Even though Peyton now is a Bronco, the dynamic is unchanged for the star quarterbacks. “We haven’t talked about it a whole lot,” Eli said. “More kind of joking and jabs at each other, but obviously anytime you play your brother it is special. It is unique and I cherish those moments whether before the game or looking across during the national anthem and seeing my big brother and seeing him at the coin flip; those are great moments that we’ll cherish.”

The folks in Indy cherished having Peyton Manning as their record-setting quarterback for 13 seasons; he sat out 2011 after several neck surgeries, then was released by the Colts and signed with Denver. The reception he almost certainly will receive at Lucas Oil Stadium will be warm and loud. “It’s always fun when you spend time at a place and then go back,” said Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri, who has done that in Foxborough four times. “I’m sure he’ll get a standing ovation right when he comes out. Hopefully, it will be loud and the fans will make it hard for him (to call plays).” Peyton Manning isn’t the only one returning to a city indelibly linked to his name. Andy Reid is going back to Philadelphia, as coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, and it’s unlikely Eagles fans will give him the friendly reception Manning is sure to receive in Indy. Reid jokingly acted surprised about the Chiefs’ Week 3 trip to the City of Brotherly Love — and, at times, venom for the coach of the Eagles, which Reid was for 14 seasons. Reid and the rest of the Chiefs knew about it long ago, and they got the Thursday night spotlight. “We’re playing Philly?” said Reid, hired by Kansas City days af-

Heat brace for NBA playoff challenges By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

Looking for a reason not to pick the Miami Heat to win another NBA title? Don’t check the odds, where the Heat are such an overwhelming favorite that it might as well be Tiger Woods against a weekend hacker. Definitely don’t bother with the Heat’s results, which show exactly three losses since the start of February. And certainly don’t look on the court, where LeBron James sent season-long reminders that he’s better than ever and already the best in the world. The only people who might really believe in caution are the Heat themselves. “There’s going to be trials and tribulations

no matter what, no matter how good of a team you are,” Dwyane Wade said. “There’s going to be a moment in the playoffs where our back is going to be against the wall. And I think everything we’ve done this season will prepare us for that moment. We have a goal, just like every other team that gets into the playoffs, to win a championship. But we understand the process that it takes.” It starts today, when the playoffs start with four first-round games. The Heat will open Sunday against Milwaukee in what’s expected to be a quick series. Then it will be up to someone like the Knicks, Thunder, Spurs, or some other contender, to prove that the next two months aren’t just a formality.

“They’ve had the best record and they’re the defending champs so they’re the team to beat, but I don’t think it’s much beyond that,” Nets interim coach P.J. Carlesimo said. “I mean, give them their due. They have the best record and they’re the defending champs, so they’re the team that you need to beat, but no, I don’t think anybody is head and shoulders over any. There’s too many good teams.” New York, which won three out of four from Miami, hosts Boston today in the playoff opener. The Nets welcome Chicago for the first postseason game in Brooklyn, while the Western Conference has Golden State visiting Denver, and the Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies squaring off in a firstround rematch. On Sunday, the Lakers go to San Antonio without Kobe Bryant, and defending West champ Oklahoma City faces former Thunder star James Harden and Houston. Indiana and Atlanta meet in the other East game. Miami went 66-16 and has been so dominant since Super Bowl Sunday that the betting site Bovada gave the Heat opening odds to win the championship that it said were “unheard of in recent years” — and then already had to lower them when most of the action was coming in on the Heat, anyway. That dropped Miami to a 2-to-3 favorite, meaning a $3 bet only won $2 more. The Heat were 2-to-9 favorites to win the East, where Indiana and Chicago also beat them multiple times during the regular season. Knicks center Tyson Chandler said the other

They should pick the Heat,” he said. “They’re the defending champions and they should get that respect. But that’s not what we believe. We haven’t believed in that throughout the year. But they should get that respect because they’ve earned it.” Miami faced plenty of adversity during last season’s championship run.

Connection is made to vitamin D-3 and weight Dear Dr. Roach: Is there any connection between extremely low vitamin D-3 level (mine was 15) and weight retention? I recently caught the tail end of some doctor’s show on TV and I counted back: Summer of 2010, I started losing weight. I was swimming a lot for exercise, and it kept coming off. By fall I was wearing “vintage” clothing I’d never discarded. I’ve settled in at 130 (down from 170). In May 2010, my D-3 had tested at 15. I was shocked: I already had a tan and was taking 1,000 IU daily. But I had been listless, useless, and just thought it was my age (then 85). It took more than six months to get to 51, sometimes taking as much as 50,000 IU three times a week. — S.L. Answer: Some aspects of vitamin D remain controversial; others are not. It is generally accepted that adequate calcium and vitamin D are essential for daily health. It is also true that there is a lot of vitamin D deficiency in this country — how many are deficient depends on how strictly you define “deficiency,” but anywhere from 10 percent

to 75 percent has been quoted. It’s also clear that replacing deficient vitamin D can improve strength and energy levels.

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health What isn’t clear is whether everybody should be taking vitamin D, or should be tested for it. I recommend testing or vitamin D supplementation if there is a risk factor for deficiency; these include older age, darker skin, staying indoors and living north of Atlanta or Los Angeles. That’s a lot of people. It’s also not clear if vitamin D helps people lose weight. Some studies have said yes, but it’s not completely conclusive. I have to say I’ve never seen your degree of weight loss from vitamin D supplementation, and I am reassured by your feeling good with lots of energy. But there are medical conditions that cause weight loss (excess thyroid comes to mind) that it would be prudent to look for.

DAILY CRYPTOQUOTES - Here’s how to work it:

Sudoku is like a crossword puzzle, but uses numbers instead of words. The puzzle is a box of 81 squares, subdivided into 3x3 cubes of 9 squares each. Some squares are filled in with numbers. The rest should be filled in by the puzzler. Fill in the blank squares allowing the numbers 1-9 to appear only once in every row, once in every column and once in every 3x3 box. One-star puzzles are for beginners, and the difficulty gradually increases through the week to a very challenging fivestar puzzle.

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

SPEED FREAKS

A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves

Daytona Beach News-Journal/DAVID MASSEY

The Energizer Bunny needs to have a long talk with Junior about battery power.

What happened to Junior at Texas?

GODSPEAK: Battery failure. Don’t most teams have a switch in the cockpit to change batteries? Earnhardt has gone real old school. It won’t happen again. KEN’S CALL: He made more mistakes than a 15-year-old in his first day with a learner’s permit. Nowhere to go but up.

What makes Brad Keselowski think he can win a fight with NASCAR?

HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ

Truex Jr. has 2nd-place blues after runner-up at Texas Since Martin Truex Jr. won his only Sprint Cup race at Dover in 2007, he’s been working diligently toward returning to Victory Lane. After suffering the demise of Dale Earnhardt Inc., then the growing pains of startup Michael Waltrip Racing, Truex is back at a competitive level. He would have won at Texas on Saturday night if, 1. There had not been any cautions in the last 25 laps, and 2. His pit crew would have been faster. But there was a caution, and Kyle Busch’s team got him out of the pits one second faster than Truex. On the last restart, with

nothing but clean air in front of him, Busch darted away from Truex for the win. The record book shows that since his win six years ago, Truex has finished second — or as they say in racing, “the first loser” — an agonizing six times. Harry Gant knows the feeling. When he jumped into the Cup Series in 1980, he posted eight second-place finishes before winning in 1982. And don’t forget Mark Martin, five-time runner-up to the NASCAR champion.

A difference prism

While Truex was unhappy with second, Carl Edwards was thrilled with third at Texas. His No. 99 Ford was squirrelly when the race started, his tailpipe later cracked, and then his safety harness came loose. He fought through all of that to score a podium finish. “It was pretty eventful,” Edwards said. “We had a very long night. We came home third, but that’s a gift for us. I know Martin’s not happy with second, but I’m real happy with third.”

Danica’s Texas

After battling to a 12thplace finish at Martinsville, Danica Patrick had an “ugh” performance at Texas. She started 42nd, never got up to speed and finished 28th, three laps behind the lead pack. “It was a tough night,” Patrick said. “The car was just kind of all over the place at the beginning. Tony Gibson (crew chief) and the GoDaddy guys kept working on it all night, and we made some improvements on it. The pit crew did a good job on the stops. We just need to get better on the 1.5-mile tracks. I know the team will keep working at it. We’ll see what we can do in Kansas.”

GODSPEAK: Get in the cage with the tiger and expect the claw. No whip is big enough to keep the big cat off you when it pins its ears back. KEN’S CALL: You can’t blame his giant mug of Miller Lite, because he was cleareyed when he lashed out. And by the way, he can’t win.

NASCAR penalties and visiting the president equals a busy week for the 2012 Cup Series champion.

Brad Keselowski takes his issues to the White House?

Well, kinda. Technically, Keselowski’s Tuesday visit to the White House simply falls in line with all of the other visits by sports teams. President Barack Obama has apparently made it his quest to meet every championship team of every sport, every year. If you only read the sports pages, you’d swear it was his intended presidential legacy. As for Kez seeking high-level intervention in his on-running feud with NASCAR officials, it’s probably not the right time or place – which means, of course, you’d never put it past him.

Why were all the old-time onlookers chuckling at Keselowski last week?

Because during his post-Texas rant, where he accused NASCAR of unfairly targeting his team, he actually said: “We’re not going to take it. We’re not going to be treated this way.” Funny stuff. NASCAR has a 60-year track record of doing whatever it wants, to whomever it wants, so as much as we like Keselowski, and even if his anger is justified, his battle is decidedly uphill.

Bruton Smith, Hall of Famer?

Not so fast. NASCAR released the names of the 25 people who made it onto the new list of nominees for this year’s Hall of Fame voting, and Bruton – a longtime NASCAR and France family nemesis – finally made the list. He might just get the vote. The nominating committee is loaded with NASCAR leaders and many with close associations, so for Bruton Smith, nomination was probably the hardest part.

KESELOWSKI

PEMBERTON

Brad Keselowski vs. Robin Pemberton: Inspectors confiscated parts from both Penske Racing cars at Texas, and Keselowski lashed out against NASCAR. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “I have never seen someone get so emotional about rear housing parts. Wonder what NASCAR finds in the No. 2 Ford at Kansas.”

Jeff Gordon is a four-time Sprint Cup champion. Before the NRA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, he spoke to the media on a variety of topics.

Next weekend, you take a new car to a freshly paved 1.5-mile Kansas Speedway. How difficult is that going to be? “It’s going to be tough. Those are not my favorite kinds of tracks, the newly repaved tracks. The tires are extremely LIthere durable, so that makes it very edgy, (and CEDis not a) lot O WeO of grip. We are going to really have to be on our game. UR are going to be challenged at that one. I think we have made gains, so I’m confident that we can make improvements for when we get there, but it’s going to be tough.”

It’s when it just blows and you don’t have any warning, that is the toughest thing.”

Do you feel like you have a good handle on who the contenders are at this point, or is it still too early? “I will be honest with you, I don’t even think that is where our focus is right now. Our focus is on making our car go faster each time we get to the track. I think our short-track program is good, but the mile-and-a-half stuff is really where you have got to be good, if you are going to be a threat for the We have not really been a threat at those Rchampionship.
