Governor visits SAFE BASE kids

Register/Bob Johnson

SAFE BASE students lined up for Gov. Sam Brownback to sign the backs of their T-shirts at Jefferson Elementary School Wednesday night. Myriah Walls, left, and Beonka Lazzo-Barahona joined other kids in an upbeat dance, just before Angela Henry, above, SAFE BASE director since it began 13 years ago, ended the dinner meeting with a few comments.

The Kansas Lottery indirectly has paid off big for SAFE BASE, USD 257’s afterschool program. GTECH Corporation, a global gaming technology and service company, provides online technology for the lottery and also is an educational benefactor to 152 schools in 24 states. Angela Henry, SAFE BASE director since its inception 13 years ago, learned of GTECH, wrote a grant and the local program won $16,500 to purchase an iPad laboratory. Many of the 300 students in the program use the technology to improve their reading skills. The advantage wasn’t lost on Gov. Sam Brownback, who came to Iola Wednesday evening for a SAFE BASE “blue plate special” dinner at Jefferson Elementary. Also attending were executives from GTECH, including Chris Shaban, company vice president, as well as Dennis Taylor, executive director of the Kansas Lottery. Brownback, at the top of his game socially, spent much of the evening visiting with kids and parents and, for the first time an aide said she could remember, signing the backs of SAFE BASE children’s Tshirts. When he paused to speak, Brownback lauded GTECH’s contribution and encouraged the kids to read. “Reading is critical,” Brownback pronounced. “It’s

important” to their education and a part of learning that “you need to continue. Your future is bright — some day you may be inventing technology to help others — but you have to be able to read. “Too many kids in Kansas can’t read,” the governor lamented.

Your future is bright — some day you may be inventing technology to help others — but you have to be able to read. — Gov. Sam Brownback

In his introduction of Brownback, Tony Leavitt, school board president, said the board made decisions “on what’s good for kids, and the decision to start SAFE BASE 13 years ago was a very good one. It’s a good one today to continue the program.” He also commended Brad Crusinbery, Jefferson principal, and his staff for making the school available for SAFE BASE activities four days a week immediately after regular classes were dismissed. “I know some days it is a challenge,” he said. Brownback opened his remarks with remembrances of Emerson Lynn, Register associate editor who died early See GOVERNOR | Page A4

ACC play draws on drama, music By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

Allen Community College theater students will be performing a new play, coming May 2, that will appeal to the audience’s dramatic side as well as their musical. “33 Variations” is the newest play, handpicked by ACC theater director Tony Piazza. The production focuses one of Beethoven’s last works. “I was really captivated by the piece,” Piazza said. “It’s got to be interesting to me, or

I am not going to do it.” The play, written by Moisés Kaufman, focuses on a woman who is investigating why Beethoven spent such a large amount of time focusing on an underwhelming piece of music. During the play, the action switches back and forth between the perspective of the woman, and then back to Beethoven’s perspective. Piazza said the woman’s daughter is a large part of the story as well — their relation-

ship changes as the lead character deals with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The entire play is set to music, which will be played on the piano live by Ted Clous. “I just love the way the music is such an integral part of it,” Piazza said. “It’s a bit of a concert in a play.” The play was written in 2009, and was featured on Broadway, starring Jane Fonda. Check The Register for a review of the play next week.

Tholens’ business turns 35 years old By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

Jim and Vickie Tholen can’t seem to be thankful enough for where their business has taken them after 35 years, even if it did start in their garage. This Saturday, they will be celebrating 35 years in operation for Tholen’s Heating and Cooling with an open-house celebration. The journey has been an interesting ride. The business, which started in March of 1978, was operated out of their garage — with minimal space and a high demand. “People would show up at the house anytime they wanted to,” Vickie said. “You would have to be nice.” She said people would simply drop off air conditioning units on their front yard for repairs. It seemed as if word of Jim’s expertise had already

spread through Iola. “You can’t put a price tag on experience,” Jim said. The U.S. Navy is where Jim gathered most of his working knowledge. He was enlisted for four years and spent three of them on an aircraft carrier, working on the maintenance of the ship’s units. After working different construction jobs, and on farms hauling hay, Jim decided to open his own business — but not without the help of a good friend. “I couldn’t have done it without Bill Maloney (then the owner of Humboldt Electric),” Jim said. “He gave me the intestinal fortitude to step out and start my own business.” The business began to grow and space became tighter. “My wife’s birthday is June 1, and I asked her what she wanted,” Jim said. “She said, ‘I want you out of my garage.’” And so he moved out, and in 1987 moved into the buildSee THOLEN’S | Page A4

Injury update on IMS history team closes local accident By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

Iolan Raymond Sutterby is “trudging along,” said his son, Dayton, of injuries he suffered in a traffic accident south of Girard Saturday afternoon. He is in Freeman Hospital, Joplin. Richard Sigg, 59, Carlyle, died in the crash, in which the vehicle he was driving collided with a pickup truck on K-7. David Redfern, 66, Iola, also a passenger in Sigg’s vehicle, was released from Freeman Hospital late

Wednesday night. “David is bruised from end to end,” Dayton Sutterby said. “They sent him home to heal.” The pickup truck’s driver, Shawn Adam Garbin, 39, Girard, was taken to Via Christi Hospital, Pittsburg.

Presidents converge to salute their own By JOSH LEDERMAN Associated Press

DALLAS (AP) — All the living American presidents past and present are gathering in Dallas, a rare reunion to salute one of their own at the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center. Profound ideological differences and a bitter history of blaming each other for the nation’s woes will give way — if just for a day — to pomp and pleasantries today as the five members of the most exclusive club in the world appear publicly together for the first time in years. For Bush, 66, the ceremony also marks his unofficial return to the public eye four years after the end of his deeply polarizing presidency. On the sprawling, 23acre university campus north of downtown Dallas housing his presidential library, museum and policy institute,

Bush will be feted by his father, George H.W. Bush, and the two surviving Democratic former presidents, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. President Barack Obama, fresh off a fundraiser for Democrats the night before, also will speak. In a reminder of his duties as the current Oval Office inhabitant, Obama will travel to Waco in the afternoon for a memorial for victims of last week’s deadly fertilizer plant explosion. Key moments and themes from Bush’s presidency — the harrowing, the controversial and the inspiring — won’t be far removed from the minds of the presidents and guests assembled to dedicate the center, where interactive exhibits invite scrutiny of Bush’s major choices as president, such as the financial bailout, the Iraq

Kansas briefs Wording leads to a retrial

PARSONS — Sometimes semantics matter. A mistrial was declared in Labette County District Court after a defendant was asked about the number of transactions in which he was involved, instead of a “transaction,� in the sell of cocaine. James E. “Big Cat� Clark, 31, was accused of selling cocaine to an informant nearly three years ago. The trial began April 17, the Parsons Sun reported, and the mistrial was declared the next day by Judge Jeffrey Jack. A new trial may be scheduled at a status conference for Clark’s case Monday.

Salina mayor supports gay marriage

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Salina Mayor Barb Shirley has joined a national group of mayors who support gay marriage. Shirley’s announcement Wednesday that she had joined Mayors for Freedom to Marry came six months after Salina voters repealed protections from discrimination for people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered. The mayor says she has no tolerance for any type of discrimination, and she wants all people to have the same civil rights.

War and the international focus on HIV and AIDS. On display is the bullhorn that Bush, near the start of his presidency, used to punctuate the chaos at ground zero three days after 9/11. Addressing a crowd of rescue workers amid the ruins of the World Trade Center, Bush said: “I can hear you. The rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.� “Memories are fading rapidly, and the profound impact of that attack is becoming dim with time,� Bush told The Associated Press earlier this month. “We want to make sure people remember not only the lives lost and the courage shown, but the lesson that the human condition overseas matters to the national security of our country.�

More than 70 million pages of paper records. Two hundred million emails. Four million digital photos. About 43,000 artifacts. Bush’s library will feature the largest digital holdings of any of the 13 presidential libraries under the auspices of the National Archives and Records Administration, officials said. Situated in a 15-acre urban park at Southern Methodist University, the center includes 226,000 square feet of indoor space. A full-scale replica of the Oval Office as it looked during Bush’s tenure sits on the campus, as does a piece of steel from the World Trade Center. In the museum, visitors can gaze at a container of chads — the remnants of the famous Florida punch card ballots that played a pivotal role in the contested 2000 election that sent Bush to Washington.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Letter to the editor Dear Register readers,

I woke up really early this morning, a little after 5 a.m. Emerson Lynn was in my thoughts and I wanted to write him another note. I wanted to write about his contributions to Iola Industries. Around 6 o’clock, I got up and wrote this letter.

get the best for Iola and all of the surrounding area. I know we have thanked you before, but I want to say once again, “Thank you, Emerson” for all you have done. We hope you know how much we appreciate your leadership in this organization. Your friend, Mary Kay

Dear Emerson, How many hours, how many days, how many weeks, months and years have you spent, Emerson, thinking, planning and working for the people of Iola and Allen County? Nobody but you really knows that number, but everyone in Iola Industries appreciates that number ….. the time you spent doing your best to

In a couple of hours, I learned that Emerson had passed away at just about the time I was writing this note. Emerson was Chairman of the Board of Iola Industries from 1969 to 2003, 34 years. I know that I speak for the entire Iola Industries board when I say, we will miss him greatly. Mary Kay Heard, Chairman of the Board, Iola Industries

Kansas: a state of takers Statewide, Kansas receives about $1.12 in federal spending for every tax dollar paid. Though many Kansans like to complain about federal spending, they may not realize, or won’t admit, how dependent our state is on that spending. If they are serious about wanting smaller government, they will have to share the pain of spending cuts. A Kansas City Star investigation published in the Sunday Eagle highlighted Sumner County, just south of Wichita. It noted how the direct federal benefits that the county’s 24,000 residents received in 2010 were 40 to 50 percent more, on average, than what they paid in federal taxes. The largest spending was on Social Security and Medicare, but federal funding also went for farm subsidies, Medicaid, food stamps, school lunches, economic development, aviation improvements and many other programs and projects that support the county’s citizens and economy. And this doesn’t include noncash federal benefits, such as tax breaks for health insurance or mortgage interest. Sumner County is not unique. In fact, the Star chose it because it was typical of most of rural America, and federal expenditures there fell within expected ranges. Sedgwick County actually topped the state in receiving

the most federal spending — $4.6 billion in 2010. Statewide, Kansas receives about $1.12 in federal spending for every tax dollar paid. Yet many Kansans don’t think of their state or themselves as “takers.” “People don’t connect the dots,” Shelley Hansel-Williams, executive director of the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce, told the Star. This is particularly the case with Social Security. Many senior citizens resent the term “entitlement,” arguing that they are merely getting back what they paid in during a lifetime of working. But Social Security taxes don’t go into an account that is saved for when you retire. Rather, the taxes you pay now help pay for people who are already retired. And most senior citizens receive far more in benefits than they contributed in taxes. Even modest changes to Social Security, such as President Obama’s proposal to slow the inflation rate on benefits, are met with fierce opposition. The nation’s budget problem is serious and will require spending cuts, entitlement reforms and more tax revenue. A first step to meeting this challenge is recognizing how much we benefit from federal spending, and how we all need to be part of the solution. — The Wichita Eagle

Hours before the federal spending sequester began on March 1, when President Barack Obama predicted that “People are going to be hurt,” he did not add, Trust me, I’ll make sure of it. But he might as well have, as this week’s furloughs of air traffic controllers make obvious. The furloughs reflect panic: Having exaggerated their early predictions that the sequester’s small reduction in spending growth would seriously affect Americans, many Democrats are hell-bent to pre-empt those Americans from drawing two logical conclusions: If one level of cuts is this painless, then maybe we should make ... more cuts to expenditures. And while we’re at it, maybe we should ignore the politicians who told us that if Washington lowered the spending growth curve ... the Earth will fly into the sun. Earlier this month, then, you could anticipate a White House effort to enrage the public when that same public preached blasphemy to McClatchy-Marist pollsters: The percentage of Americans who didn’t think the sequester cuts are affecting the economy rose by 13 points over the prior month (from 27 to 40 percent), while the percentage who did think the cuts harm the economy fell by 11 points (from 47 to 36 percent). The president and his allies in Congress hadn’t anticipated that. They’ve spent March and April listening for fury from citizens who are, um, ignoring the sequester. Some of those citizens instead are marveling that the stock market (as measured by the S&P 500 Index) has shot up 10.7 percent in not-exactly-sequesterravaged 2013. So, what could the administration do to make a reduction of barely 1 percent of actual federal outlays — less than $45 billion of this year’s roughly $3.8 trillion — turn citizens against Republicans

who oppose more tax increases? Easy, or so the president’s men and women figured: Cue the air controller furloughs! Let’s stall some flights on the tarmac! Sure enough, travel delays have followed. We’re less certain, though, that this hostage-taking will cut the way the White House expects: The

up wearing the jacket for this latest mess; they usually do. Although voters have such a poor opinion of them that it’s doubtful their approval rating can fall lower. The notion that, having agreed to tax hikes to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, they’ll surrender to the White House — Yes, yes, more tax hikes, and please, let’s end the

Public outrage to the sequester hasn’t happened, much to the President’s disappointment. The percentage of Americans who didn’t think the sequester cuts are affecting the economy rose by 13 points over the prior month. scheme relies on citizens being — how to put this delicately? — stupid enough to think that the Federal Aviation Administration can’t find a more flier-friendly way to save $600 million. To believe that, though: • Americans would have to ignore the plan that U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., delivered in early March to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, detailing how LaHood’s FAA could save twice that amount — $1.2 billion. • Americans would have to ignore House Republicans who note that LaHood’s supposedly destitute FAA is spending some $500 million on consultants — and $300 million on travel and supplies. • And Americans would have to ignore Democrats’ refusal to accept congressional Republicans’ offer to give the administration more flexibility in sequester cuts — an offer House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., reiterated during a meeting Monday with the Tribune editorial board. No, the White House doesn’t want flexibility. The White House wants what the president predicted March 1. Who knows, maybe congressional Republicans will wind

sequester’s real-life curbs on spending growth — at the moment looks fanciful. A different scenario: The longer this intentionally imposed air traffic slowdown drags on, the more incompetent LaHood and other administration officials look. They’ve had a year and a half to prepare for a sequester that the White House proposed, and that the president signed into law. Yet their idea of good management is to subject thousands of civilian air controllers to rolling furloughs? These officials’ plan for winning Americans’ hearts and minds is to toy not only with flight schedules, but also with a moribund economy that relies on the efficiency of U.S. air travel? We note that, except for some party leaders who have no choice but to back their president, not many Democrats are, pardon the phrase, flying to his side. Some of them may think this game of chicken is politically dangerous. Or they may be thinking about another kind of danger: the first air scare that occurs because an understaffed, overworked control tower makes a mistake. — The Chicago Tribune

It was played by Mrs. Wise as an accordion solo and later sung by Milford Langley, advertising director of the association. ***** This morning the Iola City Commission was urged by a group of citizens to call a special election to vote on two

proposals. One proposal to issue $60,000 in bonds to meet the city’s share of construction of a new National Guard armory, and the other proposal to start a half mill levy to finance the promotion of new industries in Iola. 1963

As the business grew even more, Jim knew he couldn’t keep up with demand without hiring more help. “Some days I felt like I was coming apart like a two-dollar watch,” he said. Kendal Catt and Tim Graham, who have been with the company 17 and 19 years respectively, are some of Jim’s most trusted employees. Kendal has taken on a lot of the responsibility that Jim carried in the earlier days. Jim said he was involved in a motorcycle accident in 2011, and was incapacitated for four

months — his employees, along with Vickie, stepped up to the plate. “I learned the business can run without Jim Tholen,” he said. “The guys really stepped up to the plate,” Vickie chimed in. With the help of his trustworthy employees and loyal customer base (Vickie said they have between 2,500 and 3,000 customers), the business has grown to larger proportions than the Tholens would have ever expected. They work with six Super Walmarts, 50 Century Line telephone buildings and Gates Manufacturing — not to

mention all of their residential clients. Jim said he can’t fully accept any credit for his success. After becoming a devout Christian in 1979, he believes God has “had his hand” on his business. “He deserves the credit,” Jim said. There are still some echoes of the early days, working out of the garage. The Tholens still have a LAN line in their home for on-call emergencies, a testament to their dedication to the business. But, Jim said, he hopes to retire at some point, and leave most of the responsibilities to his

employees. “I like where I am,” Jim said. “I’m not working under the gun all of the time.” Vickie had a simple answer for where the business has taken her and her husband. “I can’t complain,” she said. THE OPEN HOUSE is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in celebration of the many customers of the business. There will be food, gift bags for customers and special offers on warranties with new units. KIKS will be on the scene as well, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Continued from A1 off well Saturday. Team members have raised about $3,500 of $5,000 needed for the trip. The yard sale will start at 7:30 a.m. and will feature items rounded up by students and parents and donated by the general public. “We hope people will dig into their garages and basements bring things for us to sell,” Stanley said. Sale items may be dropped at the school anytime today, Friday or Saturday morning. “We’ll price what’s brought in and try to

sell it,” Stanley said. The students had a bake sale last weekend at Walmart, which raised better than $950, and a school-wide penny war before that, in which students donated pennies — about $400 worth — with the top classes engaging in a water balloon skirmish. A dance raised more than $600. “We’ve also had some nice donations and would welcome more,” Stanley said. Iola High’s history team also qualified for national competition and has raised enough money for its trip.

H Wreck Continued from A1 gether correctly,” said Dayton. “He’s in a little more pain (after surgery) but he’s breathing better.” Dayton said a ventilator had been inserted and “the way I understand it, he’s breathing about 50 percent on his own.” In addition to surgery for rib repair, a procedure was performed to “clean out debris and

bacteria from the upper lobe of his right lung, which had collapsed,” Dayton said. “He’s had several MRIs and they’re not going to deal much with (damage to) his neck vertebra until he’s stronger.” Sutterby is being treated in the hospital’s intensive care unit. “We sure appreciate everyone’s concern and their prayers,” Dayton added.

Register publisher lauded By JOHN HANNA Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Emerson Lynn Jr., who became one of Kansas’ best-known editorial writers as the longtime publisher of The Iola Register, died Wednesday after a career in journalism spanning more than 60 years. He was 88. The Register said Lynn died at a Topeka hospice where he’d been receiving care after being diagnosed with cancer earlier this year. He was the newspaper’s publisher from 1965 until 2000, when he sold it to his daughter, Susan, who remains editor and publisher. Lynn retained the title of associate editor and continued to write editorials until earlier this year. He was inducted into the Kansas Newspaper Hall of Fame in 2001. Doug Anstaett, executive director of the Kansas Press Association, said Lynn’s editorial voice “rang all across the state and region.” Anstaett compared Lynn to famed Emporia editor

William Allen White and said Lynn could write tough editorials without being boisterous or rude. “He could really write biting editorials with a calm voice,” Anstaett said. “He didn’t have to raise his voice.” Lynn served in the Air Force during World War II before working as editor and publisher at newspapers in Humbolt, Kan., and Bowie, Texas, in the 1950s and 1960s. The Iola newspaper was owned by his grandfather and uncle before Lynn purchased it from his uncle in 1965. In addition to being a member of the Kansas Newspaper Hall of Fame, Lynn also received the KPA’s career mentoring award and its lifetime Master Editor award. Kansas State University’s rural development institute also honored him last year with its first lifetime achievement award for a commitment to community journalism. He also was a regular panelist on “Kansas Week,” a Wichita public television program exam-

ining Kansas politics and government. He served on the board of the William Allen White Foundation at the University of Kansas and was a past KPA president. “Kansas just lost one of its finest journalists,” said Kia Breaux, The Associated Press Chief of Bureau for Kansas, Missouri and Iowa. “Emerson symbolized the qualities that Kansas journalism is known for — fairness, precision and, ultimately, the drive for accountability of our elected leaders. Our condolences go to Emerson’s family, and those who knew and worked for him.” Lynn also was active in community groups and served on the State Highway Commission, as well as state advisory panels on the judiciary and economic development. His wife of 59 years, Mickey, died in 2009. They had four children. The Register said his family plans a May 4 memorial service.

ACC ATHLETES MAKE THEIR MARKS

Chiefs eye tackles as Draft Day arrives By DAVE SKRETTA The Associated Press

relay, a rarity nowadays. The quartet of Dakota Parker, Tegan Michael, Josh Whittaker and Kevin White broke the old school record by finishing in 18:00.61, qualifying for nationals to boot. “That probably explains why the record stood the test of time, because it’s such a rare event that isn’t run anymore,” DeGrado said.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — This year’s NFL draft is heavy on size and light on glamour. There’s no high-profile quarterback destined to go No. 1 and instantly become the face of a downtrodden franchise. There’s not even a running back or wide receiver worthy of the top overall pick, someone with the kind of swagger that wins over fans weary of losing. Nope, there’s just beef. And lots of it. There’s 6-foot-6, 306-pound Luke Joeckel, the offensive tackle from Texas A&M whom the Kansas City Chiefs are expected to select first overall. There’s also Eric Fisher of Central Michigan and Lane Johnson of Oklahoma, two more 300-pounders who could be snapped up in the first 10 picks. Even the defensive side of the ball is big on bigness: Florida’s Sharrif Floyd, Utah’s Star Lotulelei and Sylvester Williams of North Carolina are considered premium space eaters. Utilitarian? Sure. Flashy? Not so much. “There are a lot of good football players there,” Broncos President John Elway insisted. “It’s kind of a matter of what kind of flavor you like, but there are plenty of defensive linemen — not only defensive ends but defensive linemen — in this draft, and it’s deeper than most.” Only twice since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 has an offensive tackle been chosen first overall, but the Chiefs figure to make it three shortly after 7 p.m. CDT at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Joeckel is considered the surest thing in a draft full of uncertainty. He protected the blind

Red Devils qualify for nationals in several events Allen Community College’s track teams put up with nasty weather while contending with some of the most highly skilled athletes in the Midwest during four straight days of activity. The Red Devils traveled to Lawrence Thursday through Saturday for the KU Relays before converging upon Warrensburg Sunday for the Central Missouri Mule Relays. The competitions allowed Allen athletes to post several national qualifying marks, and a school record to boot. “Considering it was a high of 39 and a low of 29 throughout the night (Thursday), I felt our distance runners stepped up as best they could,” ACC coach Vince DeGrado said. “That might have been the coldest track meet I have ever attended.” The conditions were particularly brutal for Allen’s steeplechase runners. A steeplechase is a distance race in which runners must clear several large hurdles and jump through a small water pit. Jacob Spence overcame the cold to earn a national qualifying mark in the 3000-meter steeplechase with a time of 9 minutes, 52.28 seconds, which

was only 3 seconds off the school record. “I can’t help but wonder if Jake had better weather to run, he would have run 10 to 12 seconds faster.” Brock Artis and Gabby Ruiz both qualified in the men’s and women’s 10,000-meter runs, respectively, in Thursday’s competition. Artis finished 27th with a time of 32:48.36, while Ruiz’s mark was 38:21.59. Both had to run through a

Humboldt track team competes at KU LAWRENCE — A select group of Humboldt High School track athletes competed Friday and Saturday in one of the most prestigious competitions in the Midwest. Humboldt’s Tanner McNutt gathered a sixth-place finish in the boys long jump with a distance of 21 feet, 8 inches; a ninth-place finish in the 400-meter dash at 50.56 seconds; and 11th in the 800-meter run at 1 minute, 59.18 seconds. Sam Aguirre, meanwhile, finished 28th in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 16.35 seconds and 31st in the 300-meter hurdles, finishing in 43.32 seconds. Humboldt’s 4x400-meter relay team of McNutt, Aguirre, Ethan Bartlett and Hayden Boring combined to finish 30th in the preliminaries with a time of 3:37.57. The 4x100-meter relay team of Bryce Isaac, Bartlett, Boring and Aguirre was disqualified because of an exchange violation. Boring, Isaac, Aguirre and Bartlett ran in the Sunflower Showdown 4x400, a competition among the top eight teams in the state that did not qualify for the finals of the regular relay race. Their time of 3:46.18 was good for eighth.

biting wind with flurries, DeGrado said. “Times were running 30 to 35 seconds slower than normal, but all that matters with weather like that was to qualify and compete,” DeGrado said. Conditions improved a tad Friday, although they still weren’t ideal, DeGrado said. Because of Kansas University’s track configuration, Allen was able to run a 4x1-mile

Royals let lead slip away in loss By BOB DUTTON

The Kansas City Star

DETROIT — It is here, in games like this against Detroit, the league’s reigning champion, where the Royals know they must prove themselves to be contenders rather than something far more familiar. This was only a first chapter Wednesday night — the first of 19, in fact — but it still amounted to a disappointing case of notquite. The Royals built a three-run lead before seeing it collapse in a 7-5 loss at Comerica Park. It was sloppy on both sides on a frigid night where temperatures dipped into the 30s in the early innings. Pitchers on both sides struggled to find the strike zone. Walks and deep counts proliferated. “That was some of the worst conditions I’ve ever played in,” right fielder Jeff Francoeur said. “I couldn’t feel my hands for the last three or four innings.” Still ... the Royals had a lead and couldn’t hold it. They erased an early 1-0 deficit by scoring four

Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer works against the Kansas City Royals during third-inning action Wednesday. times in the third against Tigers starter Max Scherzer, but Wade Davis gave it all back and more before exiting with two outs and two on in fourth inning. “I was just behind everybody and didn’t make pitches,” Davis said. “Even when I did make pitches, they hit them. You get a team like that any opportunity to score some runs, they’re going to do it.”

Davis, 2-1, was so sharp in his last start, a 1-0 victory in Atlanta, but never found a groove in the raw Michigan conditions. He threw just 50 of 95 pitches for strikes while giving up seven runs and eight hits. Four runs were unearned. Those four all came in the fourth after a costly error by third baseman Mike Moustakas, whose offen-

sive woes also deepened. He went hitless in four atbats with two strikeouts and left four runners in scoring position. “I came up in a couple of situations with guys on base, and I just didn’t get the job done,” he said. “That’s why we play baseball. We get to go out there and get them again tomorrow. Every day is a new day.”

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.

On Saturday, Whittaker, Michael, Tucker Morgan and Evan Adams teamed in the 4x880-yard relay to finish fourth in 7:52.10, another national qualifying mark. The group missed its own school record by .08. Morgan, Adams, Garrett Colglazier and Rodrick Simmons teamed to set another school record in the distance medley relay Saturday, finishing seventh with a time of 10:40.07. Again, that race was run in yards rather than meters, DeGrado noted. “The 4x880 relay team wasn’t ranked very high but put a solid performance together,” DeGrado said. “Again the weather played a role,

but this happens. The 4x100-meter relay team didn’t fare as well due to botched handoffs. Sometimes that happens with that relay. Coach (Tony) Davis wasn’t happy one bit, because he knows this team is better than what they showed out there.” Even with the difficulties, “We held our own as usual with this caliber of meet,” DeGrado said. THE WEATHER improved markedly for Sunday’s trip to Missouri, and so did Allen’s times. The 4x100-meter relay team of Rodrick Simmons, Jethro St. Hubert, Jordan Fountain and Michael Burns won with a time of 41.35 seconds, qualifying for nationals

in the process. “We changed the legs up and it proved to be a positive result,” De Grado said. “They ran 41.35, even with two semi-botched handoffs. When they clean those up, they’ll run under 41 seconds easily.” Bruce Barclay also ran a personal best in the 110-meter hurdles, finishing in seventh in 14.32 seconds, which also was a national qualifying mark. “This was a very lowkey meet,” DeGrado said, featuring a number of NCAA Division II, NAIA and junior college athletes. “It served a great purpose for some of our athletes.” The Red Devils will travel to the Butler

HMS track team competes

Continued from B1

NEODESHA — Humboldt Middle School’s track team competed Monday at the Neodesha Invitational. Results follow

side of Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel last season, won the Outland Trophy as college football’s top interior lineman, and wowed just about everyone at the NFL’s annual scouting combine with his speed, agility and, yes, his size. “I think this year, the offensive line position has some true prospects in it,” Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said. “Every draft has its own unique set of characteristics. Last year’s draft had its own unique set of characteristics. This year’s draft has its unique characteristics.” Last year’s draft made for must-see TV. One of the deepest quarterback crops in recent years stoked the passions of fan bases in several NFL cities, including Indianapolis, which took Andrew Luck with the first overall pick. It was the fourth straight year that a quarterback went No. 1. The run of signalcallers didn’t stop there, either. The Redskins traded up to select Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III at No. 2, and two more quarterbacks went in the first round. West Virginia’s Geno Smith is expected to go in the first round this year, perhaps as early as No. 2 to Jacksonville. But outside the strong-armed but erratic quarterback, the market at the NFL’s most critical position is weak. That means a handful of teams in need — Oakland, Buffalo, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Arizona among them — might wait until later in the draft to make their move. That’s all assuming that no trades are made on the opening night. Quarterbacks who could still be on the board when the draft resumes with the second round Friday night include USC’s Matt Barkley, Florida State’s E.J. Manuel and Ryan Nassib of Syracuse.
