BEING A ‘HARVEY GIRL’ Allen Countian recalls working in the ’40s By ALLISON TINN

allison@iolaregister.com

Hollywood, for decades, has tried to recreate the romance of the 1940s. The trials and tribulations of the war and what it took to make ends meet. Thora May Shinn remembers it like it was yesterday. In 1944, after graduating from Bronson High School, Thora, at age 17, boarded a train, known as the Katy, from Moran to Kansas City, Mo. There she began working at Fred Harvey’s restaurant at Union Station. Thora, 86, is part of a rare group of women known as the “Harvey Girls.” The girls were known for being single, well-mannered and educated, with a strict 10 p.m. curfew, as coined by the 1942 movie “The Harvey Girls,” starring Judy Garland. By the time Thora became a Harvey Girl the rules were

a little more relaxed and the black dress with white apron uniform had been replaced with new uniforms. She worked the 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. shift and made 50 cents an hour plus tips. “A dime tip was great. A quarter was fantastic,” Thora said. When homesick, she would hop on the Katy after her shift to go back home; her parents would pick her up at 2 a.m. The new uniforms, which were laundered for the girls, consisted of a white wraparound skirt, white buttonup shirt with a collar, pantyhose and white oxford shoes. If Thora was lucky, she might be able to buy some nylon pantyhose from the gift store in the train station. During the time of the war a lot of everyday items were rationed. “At the restaurant we could

eat anything we wanted, except the exotic seafood, and I gained 20 pounds eating cantaloupe and ice cream,” Thora said. At the gift shop she would buy her father and uncle cigarettes for a nickel a carton. Thora remembers when rationing restrictions were lifted as being “absolutely wonderful.” While in Kansas City Thora would spend most of her time with girlfriends watching a new movie or writing letters to Jim, her high school sweetheart stationed in the South Pacific. “I wrote to Jim about every day. I would send him records,” Thora said. At the restaurant she began at the horseshoe counter then moved to tables. Thora recalls a gentleman she used to wait on often who would order alcoholic drinks.

EMS talks show progress By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

U.S. 54 replacement will include east Iola steven@iolaregister.com

An 800-foot section of U.S. 54 on the east side of Iola will receive a full-depth replacement from KDOT as a part of their larger U.S. 54 project. The Iola City Council held a special public meeting at the Creitz Recital Hall in the Bowlus Monday night, immediately following the joint EMS meeting with the Allen County Commission. The meeting was held to re-evaluate the decision made by the city council on Feb. 25 to not move forward with the construction. “I can’t stress how important the project is, especially in consideration of the taxpayers,” Assistant City Administrator Corey Schinstock said. The Kansas Department of Transportation will pay 75 percent of the cost, and the city will pay 25 percent out of a fund provided by the state for road construction. Essentially, taxpayers will not pay a dime for the construction cost. Larry Macha, owner of Jump Start Travel Center, is one of the businesses that will be affected by the construc-

tion. Macha asked the council to request the construction in front of his business be done either in the first or in the last of the schedule, in order to limit any access issues to the shortest time possible.

“ I can’t stress how

important the project is, especially in consideration of the taxpayers. — Corey Schinstock, Assistant City Administrator

Schinstock agreed, saying the contractor will want to finish that section as quickly as possible. “That is going to be the biggest headache for them (the contractor), is dealing with the driveways out there,” Schinstock said. The bidding for the project is set for sometime this month. The first phase, which includes the U.S. 169/U.S. 54 intersection, has a completion deadline of Aug. 1. The vote tallied at a 6-0 decision, council members Beverly Franklin and David Toland were not present during the meeting.

Lawmakers mull school bargaining law

By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

The Iola City Council and Allen County Commissioners have moved one step closer to an agreement regarding an EMS merger. The two governing bodies agreed to form a sub-committee to generate ideas for a proposed merger, which they will then submit to the rest of the groups. The decision came Monday night during a special meeting in the Creitz Recital Hall at the Bowlus. The committee will consist of all three county commissioners and two members of the city council — they will be appointed at Monday night’s council meeting. “You’ve got to start somewhere,” council member Scott Stewart said referring to the committees. The goal of the small committee is to answer questions brought to the table regarding the merger, as well as to formulate a proposal that both the council and commission can examine and build off of. Commissioner Dick Works said his goal is to have answers for the committee by April, before the county’s

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The largest teachers union in Kansas is warning of a “war” on educators as the Republicandominated Legislature considers a proposal that would narrow contract negotiations between teachers and public school districts. The proposal, which is scheduled for a hearing Wednesday, would reduce the number of issues that teachers’ groups could negotiate with local school boards. For example, teachers would still be able to negotiate such things as pay and sick leave, but no longer on how they are evaluated. Supporters of the legislation recently asked for suggestions from the union after a backlash and have slowed the measure’s progress, but they are still determined to reduce teachers’ bargaining rights, said Karen Godfrey, president of the 25,000-member Kansas National Education Association.

John Hanna AP political writer “This bill, as it’s written, is incredibly harmful to the way we operate now in school districts,” Godfrey told The Associated Press on Monday, a few days after she issued a scathing analysis of the legislation and called it part of a “war on teachers in Kansas.” The bill will be reviewed Wednesday in the House Commerce, Labor and Economic Development Committee. The committee’s chairman, conservative Overland Park Republican Rep. Marvin Kleeb, said he’s open to suggestions for changes from all parties. Kleeb said the bill’s backers hope to encourage innovation in public schools by giving local districts more operational flexibility. 75 Cents

Groups representing school boards and superintendents — past allies of the KNEA in education funding issues — are backing efforts to rewrite the bargaining law. Also, a task force appointed by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback recommended changes in January, saying rewriting the law would help local boards “determine what works best locally to drive efficiencies.” The KNEA stepped up criticism last week when the bill emerged from Kleeb’s committee, and a few members of local school boards who oppose the bill joined the union during a news conference Monday. The teachers union contends there’s no real need to change the bargaining law and believes some backers of the bill want to weaken the KNEA, which is one of the most vocal critics of Brownback and his allies. Kleeb said he’s disappointed in the KNEA’s reaction, saySee LAW | Page A6

Humboldt thaws out Local meetings resume Chamber of Commerce

By TERRY BROYLES Humboldt Correspondent

HUMBOLDT — Although it’s practically non-existent this week, two recent snowfalls brought much of the community to a standstill last week. Classes in the USD 258 district were dismissed, many businesses were closed a couple of days and the grocery store experienced temporary shortages. The bread shelves were bare last Tuesday morning at Moon’s Hometown Market after an especially busy day on Monday. “We were temporarily out of bread I’d say about a day and half,� Kurt Davis store manager said. “We ran out one day last week too, when the snow hit and the (bread) trucks didn’t deliver.� By early afternoon a new supply was delivered and stocked. Students were out of school Feb. 21, 22 and 26 due to wintery conditions and the U.S. Postal Service mail truck was unable to get to town on Thursday allowing only limited residential delivery. Todd Mintz, carrier for 34 years, said he has seen worse. “I’ve been

Members Wayne and Peg Smith and David and Sunny Shreve will be attending the Kansas Sampler in Liberal in May and the Chamber will provide their gas and look into the cost of providing some of the needed brochures featuring local attractions.

The community is invited to an open meeting on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the community room of the Humboldt library where Fletcher Sim-

mons with The Simmons Company, Manhattan, will discuss the feasibility of having a hotel-restaurant-conference room combination developed within the city. The cost of the study has been covered by the Chamber of Commerce, HUGRO, Monarch Cement and donations. The community conversation will allow Simmons to gather input from interested persons. Included in the study will be analyzing access and volume to the area, population trends and demographics, potential hotel room needs and assembling events that would attract occupants. Simmons will talk about possible project size, occupancy percentage and compare cost to income for an investment value. When all aspects of the feasibility study are completed, Simmons can then make an educated decision to recommend development of a hotel or not.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Toland’s secret to happiness: a life well lived An obituary in Monday’s paper on June Toland told of a life well lived. Mrs. Toland, 98, died last week. She lived a life of service to her family, church and community. In today’s world, that may not conjure up much respect. Today, women make their mark in the work force, as much as men. Even so, Mrs. Toland was something of a renegade, studying political science of all things at the University of Kansas back in 1936. Word has it that she had her sights on becoming an attorney. Perhaps if she had been born in her granddaughters’ times she would have become an attorney, like Carol, or a minister, such as Elizabeth. At a time when most women attended university only to attain an MRS. degree, young June was a serious student and was inducted into honor societies for her high marks. She also waited until she was 28 to marry, the equivalent of 38 in today’s world. Mrs. Toland was one of Iola’s last matriarchs. She led by example of giving her best to her family, church, and the various clubs, societies and organizations she enjoyed. It’s that dedication that keeps a community’s social fabric tightly knitted. Mrs. Toland and others like her had the equivalent of fulltime jobs seeing that volunteer activities at their churches and schools were run efficiently. They took their roles in social sororities seriously.

Her love of history was carried through to the founding of the Allen County Historical Society. Whatever her interest, Mrs. Toland took a leading role in its operation. And lest one think Mrs. Toland may have been thwarted by the times, at home she was regarded as the “brains of the family,” according to grandson David Toland. She was a formidable foe at Scrabble, was well-versed in Kansas and national politics, and managed until just these last few years her own business affairs. This does the heart good. Too often we are quick to judge one’s accomplishments, or lack thereof, by proof of a balance sheet or trophies on a shelf. AS A SOCIETY we’ll never go back to the days when men were the primary breadwinners and women stayed close to the hearth. But that doesn’t mean our priorities have changed. Today, young couples share much of the parenting responsibilities and both “bring home the bacon,” making for healthy marriages and family dynamics. More than ever, people know that good families make for strong, competitive communities. We know a well-loved child thrives and the more stimulating his upbringing, the better balanced he becomes as an adult. Mrs. Toland was right on track — and Iola is the better for it. — Susan Lynn

A look back in time 60 Years Ago Week of March 3, 1953

Iola’s hourly employees, beginning March 15, will be given six paid holidays a year and those who have been on the city’s payrolls for 12 months or longer will also receive a week’s vacation with pay each year. The salaries of monthly employees were raised $5 a month and department heads, $10, beginning April 1. In the

past salaried men and women have been given a twoweek vacation with pay after working for a year or longer. Those employed by the hour have had no paid vacation. The city has had no fixed policy concerning holidays. From now on the recognized holidays will be New Year’s, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Reflecting on the Iraq War Ten years. A decade. That’s how long it has been since the United States and its allies went to war in Iraq. On the night of March 19, 2003, the U.S.-led coalition began bombing Baghdad. Ten years after that “shock and awe” campaign opened the war, there are lessons we have learned and questions for which the answers will be left to the history books. There were no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq, which highlighted serious flaws in intelligencegathering and analysis. What might have happened had Saddam Hussein remained in power will never be known. Whether the troubled country can hold together under external pressures, such as the influence of Iran, and internal pressures from the sectarian divisions between its Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds, remains to be seen. But Americans have learned much from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (which began earlier and has lasted longer). So this approaching anniversary is an appropriate moment to reflect. ... This was the first extended test of an all-volunteer U.S. military. Since the end of the draft in the early 1970s, volunteer forces have performed admirably in shorter conflicts. But these two wars have lasted much longer and produced active-duty troops, reservists and veterans who all served repeated combat deployments. The nation needs to understand and be responsive to their unique needs. American families, too, felt the impacts of these extended

conflicts. Soldiers were deployed again and again, many of them were part of National Guard and Reserve units that were called away from their communities. This war was part of these families’ lives. These spouses and children have faced stresses that others can only imagine.

part of military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Said Panetta: “It’s clear to all of us that women are contributing in unprecedented ways to the military’s mission of defending the nation.” ... It is important to remember that our soldiers and veterans still need our help.

This war was part of these families’ lives. These spouses and children have faced stresses that others can only imagine. THE ROLE of the National Guard itself has been transformed, as has the way the other services view Guard forces. “The Army, especially, could not have accomplished what it did without the National Guard,” Lempke said. At one point in 2005, half the combat brigades in Iraq were Army National Guard, a level of commitment unseen since the early years of World War II. Guard troops went from being a strategic reserve to an operational force. The readiness of Guard troops for combat now is unquestioned. The performance of these soldiers and airmen contributed to the National Guard chief becoming a full member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Another significant impact has been the contributions of military women. Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta highlighted their performance just weeks ago, when he lifted the ban on women serving in combat positions. Women have been an integral

The Department of Veterans Affairs reports that 30 percent of vets treated by the VA have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. The VA’s backlog of disability and benefit claims is unacceptably long. And while unemployment for all veterans was down to 7 percent at year’s end, for post-9/11 vets that rate was a too-high 10.8 percent. MOST

IMPORTANTLY,

every American salutes the courage and dedication of the men and women of the U.S. military. Operation Iraqi Freedom claimed the lives of more than 4,400 Americans. More than 2,100 have died in Afghanistan. The tolls include 157 service members with ties to Nebraska and Iowa. More than 32,000 Americans were wounded in Iraq and more than 17,000 in Afghanistan. The debt the nation owes these men and women is enormous. Their sacrifices can never be forgotten. — The Omaha World-Herald

Our antibiotics are less effective; routine use in farming cited A soldier shot in World War I may not have been killed by the initial wound. Yet there was a good chance a subsequent infection would take his life. By World War II, that soldier had a better chance of survival due to the wide availability of antibiotics. These miracles of modern medicine fight infections and save lives. But the vast majority of antibiotics developed to treat people are given to the animals people eat. Farmers add low doses to feed and water to prevent disease in crowded livestock facilities. The drugs also promote growth. A bigger cow, pig, turkey or chicken translates into more money for producers. How does this widespread use in animals affect humans? It is killing us, a growing number of scientists say. Bacteria are adaptable little

guys. Over time, they develop a resistance to commonly used antibiotics. Those more resilient bacteria then move from animals to humans. The bacteria causing everything from urinary tract infections to pneumonia in humans are more difficult to treat with common antibiotics. Tens of thousands of Americans are killed each year by drug-resistant infections. It costs the country’s health care system billions of dollars. So what should be done? Obviously, there is a desperate need to develop new antibiotics. People have heard by now they should avoid overusing and misusing these drugs, which can contribute to resistance. But the extensive use of antibiotics in agriculture — and its culpability in a human health crisis — cannot be ignored. Science isn’t ignoring

The extensive use of antibiotics in agriculture — and its culpability in a human health crisis — cannot be ignored. it. Neither can Washington lawmakers. A few years ago, Congress considered following the recommendations of scores of scientists to phase out the use of antibiotics in animal farming, except specifically to treat disease. Though researchers, including those at Iowa State University, estimated the cost to the livestock industry and consumers would be small, the agriculture industry opposed the legislation — and won. The Food and Drug Administration is trying to rein in the routine use of drugs in animals, but it is unclear whether producers are re-

sponding. At the very least, Congress should require more reporting on what drugs are being used on what animals so scientists can better track the impact on human health. “We need to know what’s going on,” said Dr. Lance Price during a recent meeting with the Register’s editorial board. He and his colleagues have traced new strains of antibiotic-resistant pathogens to industrial livestock operations. Sen. Tom Harkin, chairman of the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, can ensure such data is gathered by requiring it in the Ani-

mal Drug User Fee Act, which the committee is discussing now. Longer term, American producers, who lead the world in aggressive use of antibiotics, should move toward reducing and eliminating the use of the drugs, except to directly treat disease. It has been more than a decade since producers in Denmark stopped using antibiotics for growth promotion in animals. The small increase in feed costs was ameliorated by the decrease in spending on antibiotics. Pork production rose. It’s certainly no coincidence that Denmark has fewer problems with antibiotic-resistant infections in hospitals than the United States does. It’s time for this country to care as much about protecting human health as growing big cows or chickens. — The Des Moines Register

Grapefruit may lead to lower drug interactions Kathy McEwan

If you take any regular medications and like to eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice, you need to pay attention to the little warning stickers on your prescriptions, ask your pharmacist, or talk to your doctor before adding it to your diet. A recent review of the evidence on grapefruit-drug interactions showed that the number of drugs that react adversely with grapefruit is higher than previously thought. It also showed that grapefruit juice caused drug interactions at lower levels than previously believed — as little as seven or eight ounces can be harmful.

Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences

Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D., simply taking your medication and grapefruit product at different times doesn’t stop the interaction. Problems arise because chemicals in the fruit can interfere with the enzymes that break down (metabolize) the medication in your digestive system. As a result, the medication may stay in your body for too short or too long a time. A medication that’s broken down too quickly won’t have time to work. On the other hand, a medication that stays in the body too long can increase to potentially dangerous levels, causing serious side effects. The take-home message is this: If you enjoy getting your vitamin C from grapefruit and you take medications, ask your healthcare professionals about any interactions — even if you have been taking a medication for some time.

Citizenship emphasized in 4-H In the Southwind District, citizenship is an important piece of the skills we associate with nearly every 4-H project, and citizenship is even a project in itself. The 4-H citizenship project offers the opportunity to help youths relate all of their 4-H projects and other experiences to the world around them. They learn to “care for� and “share� with others through the skills and talents they develop. There is no doubt we can agree that young people should be engaged as full partners in the communities where they live, learn, work and play. Extension programs provide youths with the opportunities to acquire a broad range of competencies and a full complement of positive connections to self, others and the larger community. This is accomplished by creating communities that engage young people as partners in community issues and development, providing young people with sustained positive relationships with adults and opportunities for new skill development and mastery. That engagement, skill development and sustained

relationships or mentoring are the foundation of all K-State Research and Extension community development programs — for youths and adults alike. Research proves youths thrive in communities that intentionally create opportunities for them to lead, have meaningful involvement and know that they can have positive influence. The Southwind District 4-H program offers many opportunities for our youth to develop those abilities. Recently, six youths traveled to Topeka to participate in “Citizenship in Action.� While at the conference, public speaking skills, legislative awareness and networking with legislators were the primary focus. It was a dynamic experience that opened their eyes to statewide 4-H opportunities and offered an up-close experience of

the democratic process in Kansas. Other ways in which citizenship is focused on is by helping and serving others through community service. Local 4-H clubs help cut firewood for families, serve meals at festivals and events, or make visits to local nurs-

ing homes. 4-H leaders in the Southwind District are doing an excellent job of encouraging youths to truly engage in the community. In addition to youths serving in citizenship capacities, adults serve the Southwind District as well. Our governing body consists of 12 elected individuals — four from each of the three counties. In 2010, the first board was appointed by the county commission. Members serve a term of four years, and two board members from each county are elected at an election on

When you support K-State Research and Extension youth development programs, our youths learn and practice valuable skills that improve their communities. Working with adult mentors on worthwhile programs, youths become engaged citizens and know they make a difference to their communities’ wellbeing. Communities benefit from the power of youths and are apt to see them return to enrich the community as young adults.

H Thora she was under-age she would have to get an older waitress to get him his drinks. The Harvey restaurant is the basis for a few memorable moments in Thora’s life. When she began working parties she helped serve Margaret Truman and her sorority sisters. “She was starting her singing career at the time and the critics were being unkind. President Truman was furious about the comments that were being written about his daughter,” Thora recalls in her memoirs she wrote. She was at work the day “the nation was asked to observe a mo-

ment of silent prayer during the funeral services for President Roosevelt,” she wrote. She worked for two years at the Harvey restaurant and remembers the day she quit as being the most wonderful and shocking day of her life. She was getting ready for work when she heard a knock at her door; it was Jim standing in the hall. “I never made it to work that day or any other day,” Thora wrote. Jim, while overseas, contracted malaria and was transferred off his ship for medical treatment at Johnson Island. He was then flown over to Hawaii where he was shipped back to the United States where he re-

ceived his discharge. She had known something was going on because she hadn’t heard from Jim in a while. Nonetheless, she was shocked the day he came home.

hicle such as an SUV or truck, to arrive on the scene of an emergency more quickly than an ambulance may be able to. The members of both bodies agreed that Allen County needs good coverage, a type-I ambulance service and cost-efficiency for the benefit of taxpayers. Then, Heismeyer asked the question. “So, what are we not agreeing upon,” he asked. “Who is holding the ball,” Commissioner Tom Williams said immediately. “I think everything else is agreed upon.” Williams said in the past, when the county contracted EMS services to the city, no entity had control over any type of service. “There has never been true control,” Iola Fire Chief Donald Leapheart said when asked about the former arrangement. Works said he believes a public safety board “has some merit.” He proposed that the board would ultimately be appointed by the commission, composed of local medical professionals and authorities. Council member Stewart then submitted his proposal for a merger, typed out in six points. “It is something I have cooked up in my mind, based on conversations we have had in the past,” Stewart said. His proposal included: — An EMS board comprised of health profes-

day. There was a threeday waiting period in Missouri so they took a streetcar to Kansas City, Kan. and tried their hand at marriage there. Jim had to be 21 to get married but was only 20 and needed his mother’s official permission. They took a train home, got his mother’s approval and married at Thora’s parent’s home. For a while after the war Jim tried to find a job but found that jobs were extremely hard to come by. Thora remembers Jim trying to get a job at the Chevrolet plant but was turned away because he wasn’t old enough. “He wasn’t old enough to work, but he had just come back from the

war,” she said. After settling in Iola Jim attended a barber school in Wichita and barbered in Iola, Uniontown and Piqua before retiring in 1999. Jim and Thora had three sons, Alan, Mark and Jack. Other than a short stint in Montana working with family, Jim and Thora lived in Iola. Thora worked as a phlebotomist for over 20 years. In October of 2011 Jim passed away. She lived in Iola for a while before making the decision, in the past year, to move to Uniontown to live near her son Alan. Thora’s life hobby has been genealogy and is considered an amateur

genealogist. She has a row of books that she has completed with her and Jim’s family’s history, a lot of which she found pouring over microfilm at the Bronson library. Some of her fondest memories come from the time she and Jim spent bowling. “When I was moving I went through my old checkbooks and you really don’t realize how much money you spend on bowling trips and eating out,” she said. It has been some time since Thora’s last visit to Union Station, but today visitors can see the station’s museum and even eat at the newer Harvey restaurant in the center of the station.

ing its criticism is overblown. He noted that groups representing superintendents and school boards have been interested in rewriting the law for years, though with Democratic governors and less conservative lawmakers, the idea hasn’t gotten much traction. Kleeb said any changes proposed by the teachers union would be considered. But, he added: “I think I’m going to be surprised if they want to make anything work. ... They really seem to be taking a hard line.” KNEA and its allies see no other option but a hard line. Kleeb’s committee crafted the measure after the House approved a separate bill to

The bargaining bill would limit the issues that must be negotiated to pay, holidays, sick leave, personal leave and the hours teachers work outside their classes.

A thin layer of snow lines the track Monday at Humboldt Speedway. Weather permitting, the track reopens Friday.

Humboldt Speedway reopens Friday HUMBOLDT — A busy early season schedule at Humboldt Speedway just got a bit busier. Track owner Rhenda Whitworth announced Monday this weekend’s races — dubbed the eighth annual Spring Fling at the Bullring — have been extended to include Saturday races in addition to Friday’s planned events. The extension was be-

cause race officials at Valley Speedway in Kansas City were forced to call off their races Saturday because of snowy weather. “Kansas City got quite a bit more snow than we did last week,” Whitworth said. “There’s no way they can get their track ready for Saturday.”

Red Devils drop weekend series

As can be expected, the road to a championship will be a steep one for three area basketball teams. Humboldt High’s boys, Crest High’s boys and Southern Coffey County High’s girls will have to take on some of the most highly regarded teams in Kansas in order to advance through the upcoming state basketball tournament. The Cubs, still abuzz over a pair of thrilling overtime wins to take the Class 3A substate title over the weekend, are undefeated at 23-0 and the top seed in their 3A state bracket. But their opponents from Salina-Sacred Heart look to be formidable, even as the eighth (and bottom) seed of the bracket. At 15-8, the Knights played one of the most punishing schedules in the state, having lost to fellow state qualifiers Beloit and Abilene in 3A, Republic County (2A) and to the likes of El Dorado in 4A and Salina Central in 5A. Guard Tate Richards leads Sacred Heart at 11 points and 4 rebounds per game, Tony Chavez at 10 and 7 rebounds per contest. Familiar faces will lead the Humboldt squad, led by the senior triumvirate of Noah Thornbrugh (16 points,

Tanner McNutt 7 rebounds and nearly two blocks per game), Tanner McNutt (15 PPG) and Nathan Whitcomb (8.3 PPG) Senior Trey Johnson, meanwhile, had a memorable weekend as another vital cog for Humboldt, having delivered the game-winning basket Saturday in Humboldt’s overtime win against Eureka and the buzzer-beating game-tying shot in a double overtime win Friday against Burlington. Several other 3A powerhouses fill Humboldt’s bracket. Second seed Scott City (22-1) and third seed Nemaha Valley (22-1) also happen to

be the defending champion and runner-up, respectively, in 3A. Scott City, in fact, is gunning for its third straight 3A title, having also won the football championship in November. In addition, Beloit (21-2) and Silver Lake (20-2) will face off in the first round, with the winner taking on the winner of the HumboldtSacred Heart matchup. Humboldt’s game tips off at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Hutchinson Sports Arena. The game will be aired on 105.5 FM. See STATE | Page B2

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — An unexpected road trip turned into a four-game losing streak for Allen Community College’s baseball team. The Red Devils were originally scheduled to host Kansas City, Kan., for a pair of doubleheaders Saturday and Sunday, but the games were moved to Bartlesville because of snowy and wet field conditions. Kansas City downed Allen 3-2 and 7-4 Saturday and 13-4 and 4-1 Sunday. The Red Devils (3-8) have lost five in a row overall after a weeklong layoff due to bad weather. They committed 25 errors in the weekend series. Tanner Lee was the hardluck loser in Saturday’s opener, taking the loss despite pitching a complete game and allowing only four hits to the Blue Devils. He was done in by seven Red Devil errors, which played a role in all three KCK runs. Allen scored in the bottom of the second after opening the inning with three straight hits. Cole Slusser’s single scored Troy Willoughby, but a double play ended the scoring threat. Slusser’s double in the bottom of the sixth also scored Willoughby, who opened the frame with a two-base hit. The Red Devils left seven

men on base paths in the loss. Willoughby and Slusser both had two hits, including a double. Jerrik Sigg and Tim Lewis also had two singles, while Cody Amerine and Clint Heffern singled once. Lee struck out four and walked three. THE RED Devils scored four in the bottom of the second in Saturday’s second game, but managed only three hits after that. The second-inning rally featured another RBI double by Slusser, driving in Nate Arnold, who led off the frame with a double of his own. Garrett Rasch’s single scored Slusser before Drew Walden smacked a two-run home run, to give Allen a 4-3 lead. Kansas City retook the lead in the top of the next inning and rolled from there, adding single runs in the fourth and seventh innings. Gage Dickerson took the loss giving up six hits and five runs — four earned — in 2 2/3 innings with two walks. Jake Johnson came on in relief and gave up just three hits in 4 1/3 innings with two walks and a strikeout. In addition to Walden’s home run, Slusser had two See ACC | Page B2

Griner dunks, scores 50 in win By STEPHEN HAWKINS

AP Basketball Writer

WACO, Texas (AP) — Brittney Griner finally gave Baylor fans what they have been waiting so long to see again at home: a slam dunk. Along with another record performance in her final regular season game for the top-ranked Lady Bears. Griner’s 14th career dunk, her first at the Ferrell Center since her freshman season, came as the two-time All-American scored a Big 12-record 50 points in a 90-68 victory Monday night over Kansas State as the Lady Bears wrapped up their second consecutive undefeated conference title. “It means everything to just go out with a bang like that,” Griner said. “Got a dunk finally at home, scored 50. I mean there’s not a better way to go out.” Baylor (29-1, 18-0 Big 12) is the first team to twice go through Big 12 play without a loss. The Lady Bears have won a record 46 consecutive Big 12 games, including tournament games, and have won 55 in a row at home. The defending national champions play their Big 12 tournament opener Saturday in Dallas, and host an NCAA regional in three weeks. “Postseason, it’s here. It’s time,” Griner said. “It’s time to bring it.” The 6-foot-8 Griner got her first career dunk as a freshman in November 2009, then had two in a game at home against Texas State on Jan. 2, 2010. The last 10 slams had been on the road, in-

cluding six already this season. “She’s been getting a lot of questions about when’s the next time you’re gonna dunk it at home,” coach Kim Mulkey said. “I guess she saved it.” With 16:56 left, Griner got a pass from fellow senior Kimetria Hayden, took a step around a defender along the baseline and went up for a onehanded slam that sent the record-tying crowd of 10,627 into a frenzy. It was her third career dunk against K-State. Griner made 21 of 28 field goals and eight of 10 free throws, but her 50 points didn’t set a Baylor single-game record. Mary Lowry had a 54-point game for the Lady Bears in 1994, before the formation of the Big 12. “I just came into the game knowing it was going to be emotional,” Griner said. “I didn’t know how it was going to play out.” With her 3,123 career points, Griner moved into second place on the NCAA career scoring list behind Jackie Stiles, who had 3,393 points for Missouri State from 1997-2001. “The end results of this game, obviously, is a big margin of victory for Baylor. I was really proud of how long our team was able to keep this game within reach,” K-State coach Deb Patterson said. “Obviously, Brittney Griner had a tremendous game with the mismatch in there. One-on-one, zone, oneon-two, she was really effective in getting deep, and she had a great finish to her career here at Baylor.”

hits, both doubles. Arnold also had a double. Lewis, Heffern and Rasch singled. THE BLUE Devils erupted for nine runs in the top of the sixth to take control of Sunday’s opener. The Red Devils scored a run in the bottom of the first on a single by Lewis and a double by Arnold, but left two more runners on base. Allen then took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the fourth. Lewis doubled in Rasch, then came around to score on a single by Arnold. Six Allen errors and four hits led to the ninerun KCK outburst. The Blue Devils sent 14 men to the plate. Arnold’s RBI single capped the Red Devil scoring in the sixth. Seth Jones pitched into the sixth, giving up eight hits and three walks with four strikeouts. Hunter Miller gave up three walks and a hit in the sixth. Auston Weldy gave up a hit and a walk in 1 1/3 innings of relief work. Arnold went 3-for4, including a double. Lewis had two hits, including a double. Slusser singled twice. Jerrik Sigg, Heffern, Willoughby, Trey Francis and Rasch all had singles. KANSAS

Matt Dye shut down

Allen’s offense in the finale, scattering eight hits over seven innings with six strikeouts. The Red Devils scored their only run in the bottom of the seventh when Lewis singled to drive in Heffern. Dye induced a Matt Kellett fly-out to end the game with two runners on base. Arnold had a single and double, while Sigg singled twice. Lewis, Willoughby, Heffern and Rasch also singled. ALLEN WAS sched-

uled to host Brown Mackie College for a doubleheader today before traveling to Johnson County Friday and Saturday for a fourgame, weekend series.

H State Continued from B1 IN CLASS 1A, Divi-

sion II, the Southern Coffey County High girls (10-13) get the honor of taking on the topranked, undefeated and top seed Ingalls Bulldogs (23-0) in Hays. Junior Rebecca Wyatt leads Ingalls with 13 points and 10 rebounds per game, having scored in double digits in every game but two. Freshman guard Kaisha Batman — aside from having the coolest name in the tournament — brings nearly 11 points and 2 steals per game. Senior Sarah Webb leads the way for the LeRoy girls with nine points, eight rebounds and two assists per game. Breanna Isch adds seven points and seven rebounds a game. Mar-

tyna Hegwald and Kalyn Deal also combine for more than 10 points per game in supporting roles. The game tips off at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Gross Memorial Coliseum on the campus of Fort Hays State University. Several other powerhouses are in the bracket. If the Lady Titans get past Ingalls, they would face either Wilson (20-2) or Baileyville B&B (203). Norwich (22-1) and Golden Plains (20-2) are on the other side of the bracket. Mike Sutcliffe of KINZ Radio said the station is working to secure sponsors in order to broadcast the Lady Titans game on 95.3 FM. “We should know by this afternoon,” Sutcliffe said this morning.

CREST HIGH’S boys

have perhaps the most intriguing matchup. The 17-6 Lancers are the fifth seed and will take on fourth-seeded Wallace County of Sharon Springs. The Wildcats racked up a 16-5 record on the heels of its prolific offense, having topped 60 points in all but one of its games. Wallace County topped 80 points on five occasions, including a season-high 91 in a win over St. Francis Feb. 19. A pair of standout seniors lead the Wildcats. Eli Kuhlman and Gavin Mote, both four-year starters, average 20 and 15 points, respectively. Junior Cayden Dailey delivers 13 points a contest. Crest, of course, is led

by its senior contingent, most prominently Kyle Hammond. Classmates Jordan Morton and Jesse Boone also offer up scoring and rebounding strength. A win over Wallace County could put the Lancers on a collision course with undefeated Fowler, the top seed and the only unbeaten squad in Class 1A, Division II. Others to watch for include second seed Central Christian out of Hutchinson and thirdseeded White City. The Crest game tips off at 4:45 p.m. Thursday, also at FHSU’s Gross Memorial Coliseum, and will be broadcast on 95.3.

Jayhawks celebrate Senior Night romp By DOUG TUCKER Associated Press

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The last thing Kansas’ four seniors wanted to think about was their senior night. Determined not to get caught up in the emotion of their final appearance in perpetually ampedup, sold-out Allen Fieldhouse, all four seniors had big games Monday night to lead the fourthranked Jayhawks to a 7942 rout of Texas Tech. “Today’s been kind of crazy,” said center Jeff Withey, who had 22 points and nine rebounds. “You try not to think about what’s really going on, playing for the last time in the fieldhouse. For me personally, it hasn’t really hit me. I don’t think it will for a while.” Kevin Young had 14 points and fellow senior Travis Releford 13 added while point guard Elijah Johnson, the fourth member of the class, had seven points and 12 assists. The Jayhawks (26-4, 14-3 Big 12) took a half-game lead over No. 9 Kansas State in their quest for a ninth straight conference title. “It’s time to rock out. It’s time to get to business, and I think we all knew that,” said Johnson, who has 22 assists

the past two games. “I honestly think the reason it hasn’t hit all of us as far as this being the last (home) game is cause we’re so focused on what we’ve got to do. So we’re not dwelling on the moment. We know there’s stuff to be done. That’s where our heads are right now.” Redshirt freshman Ben McLemore, a potential NBA lottery pick who was probably also playing his last game in Allen Fieldhouse, had 13 points. Fueled by Young and Withey, Kansas unleashed a 19-2 run to take a 45-20 halftime lead over the outmanned Red Raiders (10-18, 3-14). Withey and McLemore combined to score the first 10 points in a 16-3 run to open the second half. Jordan Tolbert had 16 points for Texas Tech, which lost 60-46 at home to Kansas earlier this season. “It’s the most difficult situation probably in college basketball to come to Kansas on senior night, No. (4) in the country, a place with storied tradition and a great coach,” first-year Texas Tech coach Chris Walker said. “Obviously, we’re still building and it was a little tough for

Kansas head basketball coach Bill Self our guys.” The lopsided victory was the 30th straight for Kansas in its home finale and ensured the Jayhawks of at least 26 wins for the seventh consecutive season. Coach Bill Self was happy to see the attitude his seniors brought to their final home games. There have been years

when over-emotional seniors have struggled. “Senior nights are pretty nerve-racking to me,” he said. “We’ve had some senior nights where we won but we didn’t play good cause guys are too geeked-up and everything. Sherron (Collins) didn’t make his first basket until about 10 minutes left on his

senior night. But these guys were focused. It was emotional for them but they kept it pretty well in check. Of course, the fans were unbelievable.” “It really hasn’t hit me, or any of us yet,” Releford said. “I really don’t know how to express that last moment walking off the court.” With one regular-season game left and then the Big 12 and NCAA tournaments, the four seniors — Withey, Young, Releford and Johnson — have a combined 463 vic-

tories. Withey had baskets on Kansas’ first two possessions of the second half, then McLemore dropped in two free throws and another basket as the rout got worse and Texas Tech called a timeout in a futile try to stem the tide. But Perry Ellis scored four quick points and Johnson dunked after Kansas stole the ball and the Jayhawks suddenly had a 61-23 lead. Kansas scored on seven of its first nine possessions in the first half but then hit a lull and scored on only one of their next six while the Red Raiders — 23-point underdogs — crept within 13-10. Young, the most unheralded of the four seniors, triggered a 19-2 run that let the sellout crowd of 16,300 relax and enjoy one more easy home win by their beloved Jayhawks. Taking a pass from Johnson, Young got the run going with a behindthe-back dunk, then got a putback on McLemore’s miss and with, another assist from Johnson, slammed home another dunk on the next possession. Johnson tossed to Withey for another slam, then the 7-footer made in two free throws and a few minutes later brought a thunderous roar from the crowd by pulling up just inches from the line and making a feathery 3-pointer for a 32-12 lead.

H Races Continued from B1

Snow isn’t an issue at Humboldt, even though a thin layer remained Monday afternoon along portions of the track’s clay surface. Rather, track crews are hoping to knock down the moisture levels in and around the three-eighths mile clay track. Crews were installing a drainage whistle behind the track Monday to allow for more water runoff. Provided the weather stays dry, crews should be able to begin working the track on Wednesday.

The races will feature the ever popular USMTS modified racing series — the 34th such appearance at Humboldt — as well as USRA B-modifieds and pure stock races. Gates open Friday at 5 p.m., hot laps begin at 6:30 and the green flag drops at 7. The action begins an hour earlier Saturday. Gates open at 4, hot laps begin at 5:30 and racing at 6. Tickets cost $17 per night for adults, $10 for children ages 13-18 and $5 for those 6-11. Pit passes are available for $35 apiece. The first points night races of the season begin March 16, followed a week later, March 21-23, with the third annual King of America races.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A server killed in a Kansas City restaurant explosion was remembered Monday for her empathy and warmth. The Kansas City Star reported that about 200 people attended a memorial service at Community Christian Church for Megan Cramer. She was 46 when she was killed in a Feb. 19 explosion and fire that destroyed JJ’s restaurant near the upscale Country Club Plaza shopping and entertainment district. Fifteen others were injured. A Missouri Gas Energy official has said that Olathe, Kan.-based Heartland Midwest reported hitting a natural gas line with an underground borer before the blast. The exact cause remains under investigation. Cramer also was one of the founders of The Gay & Lesbian Student Alliance at UMKC. A memorial service also is planned for Thursday in Springfield, where Cramer was raised.

GOP seeks to smooth cuts By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

Server killed in fire recalled for empathy

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans controlling the House are moving to take the roughest edges off across-theboard spending cuts that are just starting to take effect. Even as the military would bear a $43 billion cut over just seven months, the new GOP measure released Monday would give the Pentagon much-needed funding for readiness. It would also ease the pain felt by critical agencies like the FBI and the Border Patrol. The effort is part of a huge spending measure released Monday that would fund day-today federal operations through September — and head off a potential government shutdown later this month. The measure would leave in place automatic cuts of 5 percent to domestic agencies and 7.8 percent to the Pentagon ordered Friday by President Barack Obama after months of battling with Republicans over the budget. But the House Republicans’ legislation would award the Defense Department its detailed 2013 budget while other agencies would be frozen in place at 2012 levels. The unprecedented across-the-board cuts would then be applied to the day-to-day budgets of every federal agency except Veterans Affairs, which is exempt from them. The GOP funding measure is set to advance through the House on Thursday in hopes of preventing a government shutdown when a six-month spending bill passed last September runs out March 27. The latest measure blends updated 2013 budget measures for the

Defense and Veterans Affairs departments — giving much-sought increases for military operations and maintenance efforts and veterans’ health programs — but puts most the rest of the government on autopilot. Senate Democrats want to add more detailed budgets for domestic Cabinet agencies but it will take GOP help to do so. The House measure also denies money sought by Obama and his Democratic allies to implement the signature 2010 laws overhauling the health care system and financial regulation. After accounting for the across-the-board cuts, domestic agencies would face cuts exceeding 5 percent when compared with last year. But Republicans carved out a host of exemptions seeking to protect especially important functions, such as federal prisons and firefighting efforts in the West, as well as new funding for embassy security and modernizing the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The FBI and the Border Patrol would be able to maintain current staffing levels and would not have to furlough employees. The legislation would provide about $2 billion more than the current level to beef up security at U.S. embassies and diplomatic missions worldwide. Last September, a terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. A project to repair the iconic Capitol Dome could stay on track and NASA would be protected from the harshest effects of the automatic cuts, known in Washington-speak as a sequester.

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.
