IHS grad a master teacher


Thinking outside the box

Now that trustees have overseen the construction of a new hospital, comes the business of managing it. And it’s not always a bed of roses. Trustees grappled with troubling numbers and frustrated employees at their meeting Monday night. “No one has the money to buy everything for everyone,” said Ron Baker, chief executive officer of Allen County Regional Hospital. “That’s certainly more true today than ever. We’re getting hammered by Medicaid and cuts by the federal government,” he said, referring to the state’s refusal to expand Medicaid guidelines that would have boosted payments to treat the indigent and those with disabilities. That hit to the hospital’s bottom line comes to roost primarily in the inability to expand services as desired. One issue is the effort to recruit a surgeon. “We came close,” Baker said of a potential candidate who opted to remain in Kansas City, even though for less pay. “We offered $350,000, but that didn’t attract,” Baker See HOSPITAL | Page A4

Aikins hopes that the flower seed the students planted in the river park will bloom by Pride Day, June 14, to show off the park. Aikins said the city is trying to get a restroom installed in the park. About $28,000 is needed to build the bathrooms. To date, $10,000

When she was a first-grader at Manter, a tiny town just 10 miles from Colorado in southwest Kansas, Lori Gunzelman got her first taste of teaching. “She was so far ahead of the others in her class that the teacher asked her to Lori Gunzelman tutor the little Hispanic kids in English,” said her mother, Iolan Jackie Jensen. That may have planted the seed that led Gunzelman into teaching. Whatever the genesis, Gunzelman has excelled. On April 2, she was named one of seven 2014 Kansas Master Teacher Award winners. Gunzelman teaches math at Andover Central Middle School. Master teacher awards have been given annually by Emporia State University since 1953. Among the other six this year was Kathleen Wilhite, daughter-in-law of Humboldt resident Doris Wilhite, and now retired from teaching mathematics at Olathe South High School. Her husband,

Humbolt students spruce up parks By SPENCER MICHELSON The Iola Register

Humboldt High School students volunteered to clean up and garden around Humboldt Tuesday morning in honor of Earth Day, an annual event celebrated globally to support the environment. Students picked up trash, raked leaves, collected sticks, tilled and planted flowers and flower seed around the area.

Terry Meadows, HHS band and choir teacher, organized the cleanup. “Terry managed all of this,” volunteer Staci Wyatrak said. “He got all the groups together and the Tshirts made. He spearheaded this whole thing.” The students all wore matching bright, neongreen T-shirts. Vada Aikins volunteered to oversee some of the students gardening the Neosho River Park.

For love of the game Early black players paid little, but played much

By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

Phil Dixon outlined what it was like to be black and a professional baseball player before the major leagues were integrated at the start of the 1947 season. Dixon was the featured speaker at the spring meeting of the Allen County Historical Soci-

ety Tuesday evening. He dwelt on the Monarchs, a highly regarded Kansas City team that twice won the Negro Leagues world series and often played in small towns in what was called barnstorming. The Monarchs played in Iola twice in 1922, in Humboldt in 1923 and Chanute in 1937. See DIXON | Page A4

Learning to serve is what Jasmine Bannister and Autumn Snesrud plan to do this summer. The two Kansas State University juniors are Iola natives and will be working across the world to help others. The two young women will serve in Ocean View, South Africa, for nine weeks for a KState program, International Service Teams. The students will be working with an organization called Volunteer Mzansi. The program utilizes the students’ majors for the trip. Bannister is majoring in music education and Snesrud is majoring in secondary education English. While in South Africa, Bannister will work in a school with children who have special needs and Snesrud will work in a school. “It will be winter holiday when we are there so we will help with a holiday camp,” Snesrud said. The women wanted to do something meaningful and

Financial “Spring Cleaning” Can Brighten Your Investment Picture

The days are getting longer and warmer — a sure indication of the arrival of spring. Another sign of the season may be the urge you get to do some spring cleaning. But you might not have realized that some of the same spring-cleaning techniques that can be used on your home can also apply to your investments and your overall financial strategy. Here are a few ideas to consider: • Get rid of “clutter.” As you do your spring cleaning, you may well find some clutter — a bunch of items you no longer need. As an investor, you might look at your portfolio and also find “clutter” in the form of investments that are no longer appropriate for your objectives. For example, perhaps some of them are virtual duplicates of other investments you own, thereby diminishing your potential for diversification. Or maybe some investments are now too risky for your needs. In any case, you may be better off rebalancing your portfolio. • Get organized. As you clean your home, you might find ways to organize your belongings and furniture more efficiently. And you may also be able to organize your investments more effectively. One possibility: Consider consolidating your investment accounts with one provider. If you have an IRA here, another one there and some other investments scattered about, you may be paying more in fees and commissions than is necessary. By consolidating these investments, you might save money and paperwork — and more importantly, you may find it easier, with all your investments under one “roof,” to follow a single, unified investment strategy. • Seal “cracks.” Over time, the grout between your kitchen or bathroom tiles can crack, so you’ll need to regrout to protect your flooring. And you may find that, in looking at your overall financial strategy, your “protection” component — primarily in the form of insurance — might have developed some “cracks” or “chips.” Specifically, has your life insurance kept up with changes in your family situation? Events such as marriage, remarriage or the arrival of a new child can all trigger the need to review your life insurance. And you’ll also want to make sure you have adequate disability insurance. Consult with a financial professional for information on appropriate protection vehicles. • Do some “dusting.” As part of your spring cleaning, you may need to dust furniture, shelves and other surfaces in your home. And if you’ve been investing for a long time, you may need to metaphorically “dust off” your financial strategy to “freshen it up” to reflect changes in your life. To cite one possibility, as you get close to retirement, you may need to shift some — but certainly not all — of your growth-oriented investments into income-producing ones. But you may also need to review and revise your financial strategy at other points in your life, such as when you begin saving for your children’s college education. Just as spring cleaning can bring more light into your home, sprucing up your investment picture can help you brighten your financial outlook. And these improvements can help you in all the seasons of your life.

KINGMAN, Kan. (AP) — Kingman residents easily approved the extension of a 1 percent city sales tax. The Hutchinson News reports results showed the proposal passed Tuesday by a vote of 213-95. It extends a 10-year city sales tax, which was scheduled to expire at the end of the year. The sales tax is expected to generate at least $450,000 a year. Kingman Mayor Elizabeth Madden said 82 percent of proceeds will go to capital improvements, with 18 percent for economic development. The new sales tax takes effect Jan. 1.

U.S. Supreme Court

Michigan affirmative action ban OK WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan’s ban on using race as a factor in college admissions despite one justice’s impassioned dissent that accused the court of wanting to wish away racial inequality. The justices said in a 6-2 ruling that Michigan voters had the right to change their state constitution in 2006 to prohibit public colleges and universities from taking account of race in admissions decisions. The justices said that a lower federal court was wrong to set aside the change as discriminatory. The decision bolstered similar voter-approved initiatives banning affirmative action in education in California and Washington state. A few other states have adopted laws or issued executive orders to bar race-conscious admissions policies. Justice Anthony Kennedy said voters chose to eliminate racial preferences, presumably because such a system could give rise to race-based resentment. Kennedy said nothing in the Constitution or the court’s prior cases gives judges the authority to undermine election results. “This case is not about how the debate about racial preferences should be resolved. It is about who may resolve it,” Kennedy said. In dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the

decision tramples on the rights of minorities, even though the amendment was adopted democratically. “But without checks, democratically approved legislation can oppress minority groups,” said Sotomayor, who read her dissent aloud in the courtroom Tuesday. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sided with Sotomayor in dissent. Judges “ought not sit back and wish away, rather than confront, the racial inequality that exists in our society,” Sotomayor said. She is one of two justices, along with Clarence Thomas, who have acknowledged that affirmative action was a factor in their admission to Princeton University and Yale University, respectively. They both attended law school at Yale. Thomas is a staunch opponent of racial preferences. At 58 pages, Sotomayor’s dissent was longer than the combined length of the four opinions in support of the outcome. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen Breyer, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Thomas agreed with Kennedy. Responding to Sotomayor, Roberts said it “does more harm than good to question the openness and candor of those on either side of the debate.” Justice Elena Kagan did not take part in the

case, presumably because she worked on it at an earlier stage while serving in the Justice Department. In 2003, the Supreme Court upheld the consideration of race among many factors in college admissions in a case from Michigan. Three years later, affirmative action opponents persuaded Michigan voters to change the state constitution to outlaw any consideration of race. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the issue was not affirmative action, but the way in which its opponents went about trying to bar it. In its 8-7 decision, the appeals court said the provision ran afoul of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment because it presents an extraordinary burden to affirmative action supporters

who would have to mount their own long, expensive campaign to repeal the constitutional provision. Black and Latino enrollment at the University of Michigan has dropped since the ban took effect. At California’s top public universities, AfricanAmericans are a smaller share of incoming freshmen, while Latino enrollment is up slightly, but far below the state’s growth in the percentage of Latino high school graduates. The case was the court’s second involving affirmative action in as many years. In June, the justices ordered lower courts to take another look at the University of Texas admissions plan in a ruling that could make it harder for public colleges to justify any use of race in admissions. The case is Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, 12-682.

Wet hampers corn ST. LOUIS (AP) — At a time most years when farmers would be in full swing of planting corn, Stanley Blunier and most other growers near his central Illinois farm still

hadn’t begun the annual ritual on Tuesday because fields simply are too wet or too cold to be receptive to fragile seeds. It’s a scenario playing out across much of the nation’s corn belt, where efforts by farmers to get their crops in the ground still are sputtering — similar to last year, when one of the wettest springs on record got farmers in many states off to the slowest start in decades. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says just 6 percent of this year’s corn crop is in the ground, down from the average of 14 percent over the previous five years at this time. A year ago, with planting conditions as awful as they were, only 4 percent of the seeding was complete. The struggles now are especially pronounced in key grain states. Iowa — the nation’s corngrowing king — has planted just 2 percent of its fields, lagging from 11 percent last year. Kansas has one-fifth of its corn crop planted and Missouri about one-quarter.

Kansas Legislature


Bonuses at risk for state workers By JOHN HANNA The Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislators are considering proposals to give state workers modest salary increases but end their guaranteed longevity bonuses. A union official said Tuesday that the combination could lower the pay of many employees. The Republicandominated Senate and House budget committees have drafted alternatives to GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s plan to give the state civil service employees a 1.5 percent salary increase, the first since 2009. Both committee plans would repeal a requirement for longevity bonuses for state workers with 10 or more years of experience, allowing agencies to forgo the payments. Such workers receive an additional $40 for each year they’ve worked, up to $1,000 a year. The Senate Ways and Means Committee touched on employees’ pay Tuesday as it reviewed budget issues still facing lawmakers, without taking action. The Legislature ends its annual spring break April 30, returning to the Statehouse to wrap up its business for the year. Rebecca Proctor, executive director of the Kansas Organization of State Employees, said workers see their guaranteed longevity bonuses as “the only thing we can rely on” when lawmakers haven’t approved across-the-board raises. “A lot of the employees really count on this money,” she said. The state has almost 13,700 permanent civil service employees outside its university system and another 3,700 employees outside the civil service system, according to the Department of Administration. The budget committees drafted the proposals to end guaranteed longevity bonuses as lawmakers worked earlier this month to meet a Kansas Supreme Court mandate in an

education funding lawsuit to boost aid to poor school districts. If agencies stopped making the payments to employees, the state would save about $8 million a year. “We were scrambling for dollars,” said Senate Ways and Means Committee Chairman Ty Masterson, an Andover Republican. But state officials and university economists last week issued new, more optimistic revenue projections, making legislators more receptive to pay raises for state workers. “It’s still in play,” said Sen. Jim Denning, an Overland Park Republican who serves on the Ways and Means Committee. “They haven’t had anything for so many years that I would be supportive of giving them something.” The House Appropriations Committee’s plan would boost the pay of civil service workers earning $35,000 or less a year by 3 percent and provide smaller raises for others, with the highestpaid employees receiving a 0.5 percent raise. The Senate committee’s proposal would increase full-time state workers’ pay by $300 annually through an extra once-a-year check. Part-time workers, including lawmakers, would receive an additional $150 a year. Masterson said the aim is to give the lowest-paid workers the largest percentage pay raises. But Proctor noted that if state agencies stop paying longevity bonuses, any employee with 10 or more years of experience would lose at least $400 a year — more than the pay raise promised by the Senate plan. Sen. Laura Kelly of Topeka, the ranking Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee, said even Brownback’s proposal is “insignificant” because state workers haven’t seen a raise in five years. “That should be a priority of the state, to pay fair wages to folks who are doing the work,” Kelly said.

Fellow hunter donates kidney TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Two hunters brought together by a love of the outdoors formed a friendship leading one to donate a kidney to the other, a friendship that has led to a foundation aimed at sharing the outdoors with others. Rob Robinson, a 45-year-old firefighter from Starkville, Miss., happened to knock on Gil Alexander’s door in 2008 in northwest Kansas seeking permission to hunt pheasant. Robinson returned three years later, this time to hunt turkey on Alexander’s property. “I didn’t remember his name, but I knew the voice and Mississippi,” Alexander said Tuesday of their second meeting. That’s when Robinson learned that Alexander was ill and needed a kid-

ney transplant to prolong his life. Robinson returned to Mississippi and got tested and found out he was a match, in fact closer than if they were brothers. “He texted me and said ‘I’m a match’,” Alexander said. “I put down the phone and started to cry.” Robinson, a soft-spoken man of few words, jokes that giving the kidney wasn’t required for getting permission to hunt, but felt like the right thing to do. “I never thought I would be an organ donor, let alone a living one,” he said. The two went to a Kansas City Chiefs football game together, then went to the hospital the next day for the surgery on Nov. 26, 2012. In the process, Alexander also

learned he had early stages of pancreatic cancer, which doctors were able to remove. “I just feel like the most blessed person on the planet,” said Alexander, 56. The transplant gave Alexander new life, allowing him to stop dialysis and to continue farming his nearly 3,000 acres north of Nicodemus. The men decided to build on their friendship and start Forever Outdoors, an organization that brings wounded veterans, children and others to northwest Kansas to experience hunting and nature. Alexander, a fourthgeneration Kansas farmer, said his greatgrandfather was from Mississippi and was a Buffalo Soldier in the Army.

has been pledged. The city of Humboldt has applied for an additional $18,000 grant from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks to complete the project. A group of students also helped garden and pick up trash around the town square. Ellery Robertson has been volunteering in Humboldt’s town square for several years and helped oversee the group of students. “The community is becoming more aware of the plants and vegetation,” Robertson said.

“The curb appeal we have in the community is important.” According to Robertson, this was one of the best and hardest working groups of students he worked with. People around the world celebrate Earth Day by doing activities designed to protect and help the earth, such as the Humboldt High School students. “That’s what it’s all about, for the kids to learn,” Aikins said. “I just had one of the kids ask me about the tree signs and it was one he hadn’t heard of before.”

The girls will leave for the trip on May 23. For more information on the dinner or the trip people can contact Snesrud at snesrud@ksu. edu.

Dixon, 57, introduced to baseball through trading cards when he was a youngster, has done extensive research and written nine books. His first was a pictorial history of the Monarchs, which contained about 600 photographs. He collected the photographs from former players, their families and historical society museums throughout Kansas and Missouri, where the Monarchs did most of their barnstorming. “I’ve been a fan all of my life,” Dixon said, noting he worked a few years in public relations for the Kansas City Royals and coached baseball for 35 years, during which “I learned a lot and taught a lot.” He also has been a director of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City.

“The most fun is bringing this history back to communities that played a role in Monarch history,” he said. The Monarchs were owned by J.L. Wilkinson and beloved by his players. Wilkinson was the first to offer night baseball as a means to escape the hot summer afternoons of the Midwest, for fans and players alike. More than just lighting a field, Wilkinson mounted lights on trucks and took them on the road with the Monarchs. The first night game was in Enid, Okla., in 1930. Chet Brewer pitched that game for the Monarchs. After his playing days he organized a team in California that sent many to the majors. Wilkinson also was the first to transport

his team from game to game on a bus. Others traveled mainly by train. Even with the advantage of bus mobility, barnstorming was a trying experience. Dixon recalled the Monarchs often played as many as 150 games on the road and one year between April and October returned home only six times to see their families. Wilber Rogan and Jose Mendez, a Cuban, are in the Baseball Hall of Fame. They played in games at Iola. DIXON


touched on local teams and one player in particular. Iola’s Go-Devils were a highly regarded black team in the teens and early 1920s. The Red Sox were another. Dixon pointed out that George Sweatt,

from Humboldt, was an exceptional baseball player, and also excelled in football, basketball and track at what is now Pittsburg State University. Sweatt participated in four Negro Leagues world series. He is in the Negro League Hall and Fame, as well as PSU’s athletics hall of fame. In later life he was a teacher. In answer to a question, Dixon said black professional players were paid about $150 a month, which necessitated them finding work in the off-season. That often meant going to Cuba, the Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico to play winter ball. Many records in Caribbean leagues are held by black players. “They had to keep playing,” Dixon said. “If anyone ever played for the love of the game, it was them.”

Hospital: Personnel important issue Continued from A1 said. Several factors played in the candidate’s decision, but the overriding was the expectation that he would be available 24/7. Baker also questioned if the patient demand for a full-time surgeon exists and “perhaps we need to look at a different model,” of service. It’s not uncommon for small hospitals to share resources. “We may have to reach out to those we had been competing with,” he said. A more tenable model may be to share surgeons from hospitals in the region to staff the hospital five days a week on a non-emergency, 40-hour a week basis. In his experience managing small hospitals in the southwest part of the state, Baker said it was typical for hospitals to “stabilize

and ship,” patients who need more specialized care provided in metropolitan facilities. Baker said the most likely hospitals to partner with are in Burlington and Fort Scott. Baker said Coffey County’s hospital had approached him about sharing the services of an orthopedic surgeon. MARY WARREN, a registered nurse who works in the outpatient oncology department and the wound clinic, told trustees she was concerned about the morale among nurses. Warren said she was speaking for a number of nurses who are feeling “discouraged.” The work is demanding, she said, but comes with little recognition by administration. “We need a boost,” she said. “We need to hear how we need to improve, but also about

what things we’re doing right.” Patty Boyd, hospital trustee, said she had been made aware of concerns among staff. “The biggest concern expressed is ‘nobody’s listening to us,’” Boyd said. Monthly meetings with administrators help, Warren said, but do not include entire departments nor result in desired changes. Warren emphasized she loved her job and wants the hospital to succeed. “But if I don’t speak up, then I don’t think others will.” Harry Lee, chairman of trustees, assured Warren’s concerns were heard. Trustees, in fact, are working on a public recognition of the hard work and dedication hospital employees display. AN


six to eight antennas should remedy the lack of cell phone service in certain areas of the hospital, Baker said. That will cost about $12,000$15,000. “Dead” spots are in the safe room, nurses’ stations and the physicians’ lounge. UNITING for Excellence, the fundraising arm that helped secure donations to help establish an endowment for the hospital as well as purchase equipment, is transitioning to a new phase, said Boyd. Trustees will participate with the June 7 Day of Giving on the Iola square. This is an event organized by the Allen County Community Foundation to have a “flash mob” of giving to the various nonprofit organizations that participate with the foundation.

Carl, grew up in Humboldt. Gunzelman, in a presentation at the awards ceremony, said her focus wasn’t just on math in the classroom. “High expectations for all students is a driving

force in my classroom,” she explained. “It is my expectation that all students will grow mathematically but also build social and responsibility skills.” Some of Gunzelman’s unique classroom projects include a Barbie Jump, in which students calculate

how many rubber bands Barbie needs to survive a bungee jump from football bleachers; using specifics from game shows to study simple and compound probability; and creating projects to explore threedimensional geometry. Gunzelman, a 1990

graduate of Iola High School, begin teaching in 1994 after earning her bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Kansas State University, with endorsements in math, physics, chemistry and earth science. In 2000, she earned a master’s de-

gree in curriculum and instruction from Wichita State University. In addition to Andover, Gunzelman is an adjunct instructor at Butler County Community College, El Dorado, and Friends University, Wichita. She has taken special

training in administrative aspects of education, including how to deal with bullying and weapons. She is a frequent presenter at in-service workshops in several school districts. She and husband Paul have two daughters, Kaylee, 16, and Cara, 15.

No growth forecast for Fiscal Year 2015

Sales and incomes taxes — the heavyweights — losing steam Estimators have revised their November forecast of the amount of income that the state general fund will receive in fiscal year 2014 and FY 2015. The revisions are relatively small and do not significantly alter Kansas budget dynamics, but they did yield a surprising result on individual income tax. In November the estimators predicted that FY 2014 (July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014) receipts would drop $485 million from the year before and grow 1 percent in FY 2015. Now, the estimators believe receipts will drop $381 mil-

Duane Goossen Kansas Health Institute lion in FY 2014 and grow 0.5 percent in FY 2015. The revenue drop was softened mostly by better-thanexpected corporate income tax collections — a source unaffected by the tax policy changes of the last two years. Historically, corporate in-

come tax receipts have been quite volatile and hard to predict with precision. After the recession that hit Kansas in FY 2002-2003, corporate tax receipts grew from $94 million in FY 2002 all the way up to $442 million in FY 2007 before dropping to $225 million in FY 2010. Now corporate receipts are forecast to grow back to $425 million in FY 2015 — not an all-time high, but a total that shows more robust growth than other tax sources. THE REAL surprise was the estimate for individual

income tax. Last November the estimators thought this source would bring $2.5 billion in FY 2014, or $431 million less than the year before. The new estimate for FY 2014 adds $25 million to the expected total. But remember, in February the state took in more than $50 million in one-time income tax payments for amounts owed in prior years. Factor out that $50 million and the new estimate actually surprisingly shows increased pessimism about individual income tax receipts. And the forecast for FY 2015 in this area? No

growth at all. Kansas faces a situation in which overall revenue dropped 1.1 percent in FY 2013 and is predicted to drop 6 percent in FY 2014, then grow by only 0.5 percent next year. Some of the small tax sources are doing well. However, the two big sources — sales tax and individual income tax, which bring in more than 80 percent of state general fund resources — are dropping significantly this year and then growing only slowly or not at all next year. That means difficult budget decisions still lie ahead.

Climate change: Running out of time Next year, in December, delegates from more than 190 nations will gather in Paris to take another shot at completing a new global treaty on climate change. This will be the 21st Conference of the Parties under United Nations auspices since the first summit meeting in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. For the most part, these meetings have been exercises in futility, producing just one treaty — in Kyoto in 1997 — that asked little of the big developing countries and was never ratified by the United States Senate. But if the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s most recent report is to be taken seriously, as it should be, the Paris meeting may well be the world’s last, best chance to get a grip on a problem that, absent urgent action over the next decade, could spin out of control. The I.P.C.C., composed of thousands of the world’s leading climate scientists, has issued three reports in the last seven months, each the product of up to six years of research. The first simply confirmed what has been known since Rio: global warming is caused largely by the burning of fossil fuels by humans and, to a lesser extent, by deforestation. The second, released in Japan three weeks ago, said that profound effects were already being felt around the world, including mounting damage to coral reefs, shrinking glaciers and more persistent droughts, and warned of worse to come — rising seas, species loss and dwindling agricultural yields. The third report, released last week, may be the most ominous of the three. Despite investments in energy efficiency and cleaner energy sources in the United States, in Europe and in developing countries like China, annual emissions of greenhouse gases have risen almost twice as

fast in the first decade of this century as they did in the last decades of the 20th century. This places in serious jeopardy the emissions target agreed upon in Rio to limit warming to no more than 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit above the preindustrial level. Beyond that increase, the world could face truly alarming consequences. AVOIDING that fate will require a reduction of between 40 percent and 70 percent in greenhouse gases by midcentury, which means embarking on a revolution in the way we produce and consume energy. That’s daunting enough, but here’s the key finding: The world has only about 15 years left in which to begin to bend the emissions curve downward. Otherwise, the costs of last-minute fixes will be overwhelming. “We cannot afford to lose another decade,” says Ottmar Edenhofer, a German economist and co-chairman of the committee that wrote the report. “If we lose another decade, it becomes extremely costly to achieve climate stabilization.” The report does not tell governments what to do — presumably, that’s for them to decide in Paris — but it lists approaches, mostly familiar, some technologically advanced. The most obvious, and probably the most difficult to negotiate, is to put a global price on carbon, either through a system of tradable permits like that adopted by Europe (and rejected by the United States Senate) or through a carbon tax of some

sort, thus driving investments to cleaner fuels. A more plausible pathway is to get each country to adopt binding emission reduction targets and then allow them to choose how to get there — ramping up nuclear energy, phasing out coal-fired plants in favor of cleaner natural gas (though natural gas itself would have to someday give way to low-carbon alternatives), and vastly increasing renewable sources like wind and solar, which still supply only a small fraction of the world’s energy (less than 5 percent for wind and solar combined in the United States). All this will require a huge shift in investment, both private and public, from fossil fuels. Governments have an enormous amount of work to do in devising emission reduction strategies by next year. As always, American leadership will be required, meaning leadership from the top. Confronted with a hostile Congress, President Obama has commendably moved on his own to reduce emissions through regulations, first with cars and now with coalfired power plants. And he has done so without a great deal of public support. However compelling the science, global warming has not generated the kind of public anxiety and bottom-up demand for change that helped win the big fights for cleaner air and water in the late 1960s and early 1970s. This makes his job harder but no less urgent. — The New York Times

Gov. Sam Brownback predictably signed the schoolfinance bill on Monday afternoon, focusing on its virtues instead of acknowledging that its flaws justified a veto — and another try during the Legislature’s wrap-up session. Yes, the law answers the Kansas Supreme Court by restoring state funding for school districts’ capital improvements and promising some property-tax relief, and lawmakers sweetened it with some needed funding and bonding authority for higher education. By themselves, those items would have deserved the governor’s signature. What merited his veto were the provisions that legislators insisted on adding at the last minute to “get something” politically out of the bill. A Brownback veto would have defended K-12 public school teachers’ professionalism and long-held rights. Instead, for the first time since the 1950s, even teachers with four-plus years of experience can now be fired without an explanation or a chance to challenge their termination in an administrative hearing. Though smart larger districts may negotiate such protections into their contracts as a recruitment tool, there will be nothing to prevent many districts from axing veteran teachers for little or no reason or to save money. Plus, districts now can hire people with science, technology, math, finance and accounting degrees who have no clue how to teach or handle a classroom. That reform dismisses the skill and training of math and science educators as it meddles in the teacher-licensing authority of the Kansas State Board of Education, which

was similarly disregarded in the bill’s doubling of the largely unregulated “innovative districts” allowed under a still-untested 2013 legislative move. The bill also contains a back-door taxpayer subsidization of private schools via tax credits for corporations that donate to specific groups that grant scholarships so low-income public school students can shift to religious or other private schools. The tax breaks available are capped at $10 million for now, but such programs in other states have been the subject of controversy and litigation related to favoritism, discrimination and lack of transparency. The Kansas Association of School Boards noted that the private schools eligible to take the scholarship students need not be accredited, participate in state assessment testing or practice nondiscrimination. Tax-subsidized schooling demands more accountability than that. The bill also reduces the statutory minimum amount of per-pupil state funding for public schools from $4,492 to $3,838. That sure looks like an attempt to circumvent any Kansas Supreme Court ruling trying to hold the state to the higher figure, which was endorsed in the ongoing lawsuit by the trial court in January 2013. Of course, there was no thorough consideration of the historic policy changes by the legislative committees. Instead, they were inserted in the bill without vetting or full debate, mostly late at night. The result of that bad lawmaking was a bad bill, which Brownback’s signature just made a bad law. — The Wichita Eagle

A�look�back�in�time � 30 Years Ago Week of April 20, 1984

Iola city commissioners yesterday reviewed plans for a residential development at the north edge of Iola to be called Southview Addition of the Hillsdale Development. It will be on the north side of Miller Road east of Cottonwood. Ken Shetlar, Iola engineer, and others intend to develop the property. A plat with 30 building lots was shown to the commission. The developers said they would seek to have the platted

area annexed to the city. ***** The Iola High School workrelease program for seniors will be eliminated next year for seniors because of a new state law that increases the number of credit hours needed to win a high school diploma from 900 to 1,050. Seniors will still be allowed to enroll in one or more college courses at Allen County Community College while continuing their high school classes.

Country roads to see construction By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

Tankers The oil and chemical tanker Overseas Sifnos is seen positioned at the Cherry Point Refinery near Ferndale, Wash. As the northwest positions to be the hub for oil from North Dakota as well as Alberta’s oil sands and coal from the Rockies, critics say the chance of spills and environmental damage increase. (Erika Schultz/Seattle Times/MCT)

Work started Monday to rebuild four miles of Delaware Road east of 2200 Street. “People living along the road will have a little inconvenience for a while,” said Bill King, director of Public Works, told Allen County Commissioners at their meeting Tuesday morning. Construction is expected to carry on to mid-June. “But, they’re going to be happy when it’s done,” King said.

Residents along the road got commissioners’ attention a year ago when they complained about heavy truck traffic on Delaware and resulting damage to its surface, which led to its rebuild. Dust abatement material will be applied to country roads in about a month. The charge is $1.40 per linear foot of property next to a road, with minimum of 150 feet and 300 feet recommended. Residents may sign onto the program until April 30 by

Portal for driver’s permits delayed TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas is starting later than initially planned with a new online portal for taking applications for driver’s education permits from young residents. The Department of Revenue expects the portal to be available May 5. The department previously planned to have it available April 1. Department spokeswoman Jeanine Koranda said Tuesday the delay was caused by last-minute improve-

ments to make the portal run more smoothly for driving instructors. With the new format, an instructor will be able to fill out an online form and immediately print out the permit if there are no issues that require additional review. In the past, the forms had to be mailed to Topeka, and processing them could take several weeks. Each year the department handles about 50,000 driver's ed applications.

King said animals were a nuisance at the quarry, which has heavy timber and creek nearby. “Raccoons are the biggest concern,” he added, noting the accident occurred after the animal’s babies were removed from a trackhoe’s engine housing and “we thought she was out of there, too.” The operator discovered otherwise when he started machine and the animal ran into a cooling fan. King said repairs might be as much as $1,000.

Defensive lapses lead to Allen loss By SPENCER MICHELSON The Iola Register

Errors played a key factor in Allen Community College’s 20-9 loss to Hutchinson Tuesday. The Blue Dragons took advantage of the eight ACC errors. “On the positive note we scored a lot of runs,” coach Val McLean said. “On the downside, we made eight errors. Most of those were not catching fly ball errors.” Allen’s offense wasn’t the problem, scoring nine runs on eight hits. “We swung the bats pretty good there,” McLean said. “There’s no question in my mind that if we make those defensive plays it’s going to be a barn-burner of a game.” Hutchinson took the early lead in the top of the first, with a two-run, bases-loaded single by outfielder Matt Jones. Allen got one of those runs back in the bottom of the frame with a sac fly from outfielder Kyle Foster. In the second inning, Hutchinson added two more

to take a 4-1 lead. Hutchinson didn’t have the lead for long; the Red Devils tied the game 4-4. Allen took advantage of a throwing error to score their first run of the inning. Second baseman Clint Heffern then had an RBI single. Heffern went 2-for-3. Shortstop Levi Ashmore hit a single that got under the right field-

er’s glove which allowed Heffern to score the tying run. The Blue Dragons took a 6-4 lead in the fourth inning on a two-run homer by third baseman Bennett Oliver. The Red Devils weren’t able to tie or gain the lead for the rest of the game. In the fifth inning, ACC got a run back off Foster’s bat with an RBI double to pull

within 8-5. The Blue Dragons answered with an 11-run sixth inning mostly coming off of singles and errors with the bases loaded. Allen scored four in the bottom of the inning. With the bases loaded, Ashmore hit a double to score two. See ALLEN | Page B4

Mustangs drop two at Wellsville WELLSVILLE — Iola High’s baseball program ran into a pair of left-handed pitching buzz saws Tuesday. Host Wellsville’s Shamus Kearney and Luke Meyer kept the Mustangs at bay for both games of their doubleheader. Meyer was particularly nasty, throwing a seven-inning no-hitter in a 4-0 victory. Kearney, meanwhile, took the win in game 1, 6-1. The losses drop Iola to 4-4 in Pioneer League action and 4-6 overall. “We didn’t play very well, and they’re pitching is great,” Mustang head coach Mark Percy said. Wellsville took a quick 2-0 lead against Iola starter Derrick Weir in game 1, taking advantage of a hit and two walks. “Derrick struggled with his control early, but didn’t do a bad job,” Percy said. “He gave up only a couple of hits.” Weir allowed one more run in the second before pitching a scoreless third.

Weir allowed two hits and three walks in his three innings of work. Trent Latta led off the third with a walk for Iola before coming around to score on Ethan Scheibmeir’s RBI ground ball. Iola had only two hits after that. Latta’s two-out single in the fifth, and Weir’s leadoff double in the sixth. The Mustangs missed out on a scoring chance in the second, when Coleson Wiggin and Caleb Alexander singled, but both were stranded in scoring position. Latta wound up with two singles, Weir a double, and Scheibmeir, Wiggin and Alexander with one single apiece. Weir struck out three on the mound. Drew Faulhaber pitched two innings, giving up a hit and three walks. Thealvin Minor struck out two in his inning of work. LATTA PITCHED the whole way for Iola in game 2, surrendering five hits, but See MUSTANGS | Page B4

Iola golfers tie for second OSAWATOMIE — Iola High’s golf team had four goals entering Tuesday’s Osawatomie Invitational. Doug Kerr wanted the Mustang golfers to: 1. Establish a strong lead in the Pioneer League race, with the cumulative scores of three tournaments used to determine league standings. Check. Iola leads Anderson County by 40 strokes already. 2. See how the Mustangs measured up against Class 4A power Paola. Check. Iola tied Paola with a score of 319. 3. Compete without junior standout Shane Walden, who missed Tuesday’s tournament because he was taking a national chemistry exam. Check. And 4. Win the tournament Not quite. Ottawa, another Class 4A power, bested Iola and Paola by two strokes in the final standings. “We hit three of our four goals, and those were the three most important ones,” said Kerr, Iola’s head coach. Iola was once again led by Kaden Macha, defending Class 4A individual champion, with a one-over 72. His score was two strokes better than Anderson County’s Spencer Walter. Weston Hines and Drake Dieker finished 15th and 16th, respectively with scores of 79 and 80. Adam Peterson followed with an 88; Matt Jacobs a 94.

Shields, Moustakas lead Royals past Cleveland CLEVELAND (AP) — The Kansas City Royals needed a big hit. Mike Moustakas delivered it in an 8-2 win Tuesday night over the Cleveland Indians. Moustakas’ three-run homer was the key blow in a four-run fourth inning as the Royals raised their record to 10-0 when scoring at least four runs. The burst was more than enough for James Shields (2-2), who allowed two runs and struck out nine in six innings in winning his second straight start. “Moose drove one in the seats,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “It was good to see to get on

the board like that.” “That’s huge,” said Shields, who has 21 strikeouts in his last two starts. “We’re down 1-0 right there. Moose put a good swing on it and got us the lead.” Yost knew his team was in good shape with his ace in charge. “You’ve got James Shields on the mound throwing his usual game,” Yost said. “Nine punch-outs and combine that with what he did his last start, that’s pretty impressive work.” Eric Hosmer had four hits, including an RBI double in the seventh. “I really didn’t have my best stuff, but I located my fastball when I

needed to and I got some early outs,” Shields said. “Overall, it was a good outing.” Cleveland manager Terry Francona turned 55 years old Tuesday, but the Indians were unable to win a third straight game for the first time this season. “ U n f o r t u n a t e l y, Shields is pretty much the same every time we see him. With his command and aggressiveness, he’s one of the best,” Francona said. Danny Salazar (0-3) didn’t allow a hit until the fourth, but unraveled quickly when Hosmer led off with a single, the first of five hits in the inning. Billy Butler followed with another single before Salazar retired the next two hitters. Moustakas drove a 1-1 pitch into Kansas City’s bullpen in right field, breaking a 2 for 15 slump.

Alcides Escobar followed with another single, stole second and went to third on catcher Yan Gomes’ throwing error. Jarrod Dyson’s bunt hit made it 4-1. Salazar didn’t get through the fifth. Hosmer doubled with one out and scored on Butler’s double. Hosmer was 4 for 5. His seventh-inning double gave Kansas City a four-run lead and he added a single in the ninth. “After that big swing from Moose, it loosened everybody up,” Hosmer said. “We know anytime Shields is on the mound it’s not going to take very many runs to get a win.” Salazar, who pitched well in 10 starts after being called up last season, hasn’t been able to find the same consistency in his first four starts. The right-hander allowed five runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings. He

struck out six. Shields allowed an unearned run in the second, but held the Indians in check until the sixth. Bourn’s bases-loaded single put Cleveland ahead. Second baseman Omar Infante’s fielding error on Asdrubal Cabrera’s ground ball started the rally. David Murphy singled and Lonnie Chisenhall was hit by a pitch with two outs. Bourn’s sharp single to right scored Cabrera. Royals catcher Salvador Perez was 0 for 5 and is hitless in his last 22 atbats. Cleveland third baseman Carlos Santana is in a 2 for 43 skid after going hitless in four at-bats. The game-time temperature was announced at 50 degrees, but a strong wind made it feel much colder. The crowd of 8,848 barely surpassed the all-time low at Progressive Field of 8,726.

NOTES: Royals 1B coach Rusty Kuntz, who suffered a broken left arm during batting practice Monday, will undergo surgery Wednesday at Cleveland Clinic. Kuntz was struck by a line drive hit by Perez. Major league coach Mike Jirschele will fill in for Kuntz for at least the remainder of the series. ... The squirrel that ran on the field during Monday’s game brought back memories for Francona when he was managing winter ball in the Dominican Republic. “It was about 15 minutes before the game and there was a goat, a dog and a chicken in center field,” he said. Francona said the intruders were removed by the time the game began. ... Royals LHP Jason Vargas (2-0) faces Indians RHP Justin Masterson (0-0) in the third game of the four-game set today at 7:05 p.m.

Pacers rally to defeat Hawks, even series at 1-1

Allen: Errors costly Continued from B1

Ashmore led Allen’s offense going 3-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored. Third baseman Trey Francis had a single that brought in two more. Hutchinson put one more run on the scoreboard in the top of the seventh. Allen didn’t score. The game ended after the seventh be-

cause of the run-limit being reached. Pitcher Logan Bausch earned the loss, tossing three innings. He gave up four hits, three walks and four runs, two earned. Overall, Red Devil pitchers gave up 15 hits and walked seven. Allen plays Kansas City, Kan., in a home doubleheader at 3 p.m. Thursday.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Pacers got tired of talking trash. That left them with plenty of energy to handle the Hawks on Tuesday night. Paul George scored 27 points, George Hill added 15 in the second half and that suffocating defense that seemed to vanish over the past few weeks was back in force. Atlanta couldn’t contend with the Pacers’ resurgent combination, falling 101-85 and into a 1-1 tie in the bestof-seven playoff series. “We put our print on this game in the third quarter, which we’ve done when playing November, December and January basketball,” George said. “We got back to that (Tuesday). I thought we did a great job of locking in after coming out in the sec-

ond half. We just stayed the course.” For weeks, all the talk has been about the “implosion.” After starting 33-7, Indiana finished 56-26 yet somehow managed to hold onto the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. On Saturday, they gave home-court advantage right back to the Hawks, prompting TNT commentator Charles Barkley to call the Pacers “wussies,” reigniting the debate over whether they were worthy of a No. 1 seed. For the next 72 hours, George and his teammates were constantly questioned again about what was wrong. For the next 72 hours, they defiantly insisted everything would be OK. On Tuesday, it was. Now Indiana must prove it can maintain

lied on Peterson’s score in the team standing, determined by each team’s four best scores. “Adam shaved four strokes off his score from his last tournament,” Kerr said. “I was very pleased with how

we did.” Tuesday’s results also should give the Mustangs impetus for improvement. Both Ottawa and Paola are in the Class 4A Regional tournament with Iola, with the top two team scores qualify-

ing for the state tournament. “For us to be where we are, without Shane, leaves me very encouraged,” Kerr said. “And some of our guys left some shots out there. I know they would have liked another shot at

An error led to two unearned Wellsville runs in the fourth. Meyer’s blasts came in the second and sixth innings. Latta struck out 10 Wellsville batters. IN SOFTBALL action, the Fillies dropped scores of 17-2 and 16-1. Statistics were unavailable by press time. In junior varsity ac-

this level of play, starting with Game 3 in Atlanta on Thursday. The Pacers have only two wins in Atlanta since December 2006, though one of those closed out last year’s first-round playoff series in six games. “We couldn’t go down 0-2. We’re still down in the series, but we feel good about where we are,” David West said. “The most encouraging thing is the way we played defensively. We didn’t allow (Jeff) Teague to play playground basketball on us. We took that personally, a little bit.” Perhaps, a lot. Indiana limited the Hawks to 33 second-half points and dominated the third quarter. George added 10 rebounds, six assists, four steals and one block while going 9 of

16 from the field, 5 of 7 on 3-pointers, and 4 for 4 at the free-throw line. Plus, he contained Teague after the Hawks’ point guard burned Indiana for 28 points in Game 1. George wanted the challenge of guarding Teague, who had seven points in the first quarter and seven more the rest of the game. George was the catalyst, but he had plenty of help. Hill, who had been mired in an offensive funk, made 5 of 6 shots in the second half. Luis Scola, who kept the Pacers close when West got into early foul trouble, finished with 20 points and seven rebounds. The defense that gave up 11 3-pointers in Game 1 and eight more in the first half of Game 2, allowed just two over the final 24 minutes.

Drugs not cause of disease


Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health Dear Dr. Roach: I am 82 and recently have been diagnosed with inclusion body myositis. I have been on Zocor for more than 15 years. Do you think the statin could be a cause of this disease? I don’t know whether to continue taking it. My doctor is vague about this. — D.A. Answer: Inclusion body myositis is a relatively rare disease, only a few new cases per million people per year. It is most common in older men. It begins slowly, with weakness that is hardly noticeable at first, and most people have symptoms for more than five years before getting a diagnosis. It tends to affect the legs first, with gradual muscle atrophy. It also may affect the swallowing muscles. Statins do not cause inclusion body myositis. Two medicines, colchicine (used for gout) and chloroquine (for malaria and some rheumatologic conditions), can cause a condition that looks like inclusion body myositis. However, all statin drugs may cause muscle weakness or inflammation.

Seattle Mariners in a slump MCT

SEATTLE — And on the eighth day, the Mariners lost yet again. Sure, Erasmo Ramirez gave up a pair of home runs on 0-2 counts _ a move made infamous by former teammate Hector Noesi — but Tuesday night’s 5-2 loss to the Astros, the Mariners’ eighth straight, fell on their offense or lack thereof. On a frigid Tuesday night typical of Safeco Field in the spring and with a small announced crowd of 10,466 — also becoming more typical — watching and shivering, Mariners hitters made right-hander Collin McHugh look like Roger Clemens. The 26-year-old righthander, who was recalled from Class AAA Oklahoma City to replace an injured Scott Feldman, was outstanding in his Astros’ debut, pitching 6 1/3 shutout innings, allowing three hits and striking out 12 hitters. The 12 strikeouts were the most by any pitcher in their Astros debut. The previous record was held by Roger Clemens, who struck out nine in his debut against the Giants on April 7, 2004. Coming into the game, he’d made 15 majorleague appearances in his career (eight starts) and was 0-8 with an 8.94 earned run average. The Mariners wish they could have seen that version of McHugh, not the guy who was throwing

Seattle Mariners shortstop Brad Miller is pulled off the bag by the throw from catcher Mike Zunino, allowing the Houston Astros’ Jose Altuve to steal second in the third inning at Safeco Field in Seattle on Tuesday. (Dean Rutz/Seattle Times/MCT) his low-90s fastball on the outside corner with precision. McHugh struck out the side in the first and third innings and was hit hard only a couple of times. It wasn’t until he left that the Mariners finally mustered some offense. After striking out Robinson Cano for the second out of the seventh inning, Astros manager Bo Porter lifted McHugh in favor of lefty Raul Valdes. The move didn’t work so well. Valdes walked Kyle Seager and then served up a two-run homer to Justin Smoak,

who hammered a 2-2 ball deep into the curve­ left-field stands. But that was it for Seattle, which has scored two runs or fewer in seven of its last 10 games. Ramirez was shaky in his start. He issued a one-out walk and then left a pitch up in the zone on an 0-2 count to Jason Castro, which he hit over the wall in left field. But he rallied and retired 14 of the last 17 batters he faced after the homer. He gave the Mariners six innings and allowed three runs on three hits with three walks and eight strikeouts.

Senior Spotlight Iola High School

Big 12 coaches talk football KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The mercurial state of college football could be summed up by listening to Big 12 coaches respond to questions Monday as spring practices draw to a close. What was once an opportunity to discuss X’s and O’s, the hotshot freshman or a new starting quarterback instead became a discussion of whether

players are employees, the perils and merits of transfers, and the money associated with the new format for college football’s playoff. Perhaps nobody in the Big 12 is better able to characterize the changes to the game than Bill Snyder, who took over at Kansas State in 1988 and has been witness to the shifting landscape. Take the issue of

whether players are university employees, a hot-button issue after players at Northwestern sought to form a union. A regional director for the National Labor Relations Board has said that they meet the definition of employees under federal law. The university has filed an appeal, saying it provided “overwhelming evidence” that players are “students first.”
