Former Iolan Sheridan (Larson) Brull and husband Justin will tell about their experiences while serving with the Peace Corps in Vanuatu at the Osa and Martin Johnson Safari Museum in Chanute at 2 o’clock this afternoon. The museum is in the old Santa Fe depot. They have had a display of things they brought back from their stint of service in the South Pacific at the museum since April. The display will remain another month or so. “We will talk about some of the things on display and what we did while living in Vanuatu,” Sheridan told the Register. Her parents are Lonnie and Stephanie Larson. She teaches English at Mulvane High School; her husband, a native of Hays, is studying education at Wichita State University. The display at the Safari Museum parallels in many respects artifacts Osa and Martin Johnson carried back to the United States and Chanute, Osa’s hometown, from their groundbreaking documentary experiences in the South Pacific during the first half of the 20th century.

‘Jar’ story still resonates By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

Megan (Stewart) Felt told Iola Rotarians Thursday how Irena Sendler saved 2,500 Jewish children from almost certain death during World War II. Felt and three other Uniontown High School students, starting in 1999, developed a National History Day project that focused on Sendler’s role to undermine Nazi intentions of exterminating Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto. The play “Life in a Jar” — later a book and Hallmark Channel movie — evolved from the students’ project to tell Sendler’s story. “Jar” became an integral part of the title because Sendler jotted down the names of children saved, placed the names in a jar and buried the jars near an apple tree, “not far from a German barracks.” Felt was a freshman when she and the others picked the Holocaust — the Nazi murders of Jews and other “undesirables” — for a year-long

project. Norm Conard, now director of the Lowell Milken Center in Fort Scott and then a UHS history teacher, showed them a folder of clippings. One — from a 1994 issue of U.S. News and World Report — mentioned Sender’s role in saving Jewish children. “We found just one site on Google that mentioned Sendler,” Felt said, and thought an estimate of 2,500 children saved probably was in error, that it more likely was 250. “We started looking for her burial site, but then found she was still alive.” That prompted them to write a letter to Sendler, explaining what they wanted to do. “One day one of the girls came running down the only hall in Uniontown High, yelling that we had gotten a response,” Felt said. To their exasperation the letter was written in Polish. “We found a translator at KU. The first thing the letter said was, ‘To my dear and beloved girls,’” Felt recalled. See SENDLER | Page A6

A 90-second video may make or break Carlene Meredith Cogliati’s future as a musical director. The Iola native, now of Humboldt, Calif., has written a musical that she hopes will someday see the big stage. A 90-second segment of the musical is now posted on YouTube where judges for America’s Got Talent will pick 40 video spots among thousands of submissions. “It was hard to find a 90-second segment that represents the essence of a twohour production,” said Carlene in a telephone interview earlier this week. Carlene’s hope is that the audition will adequately pique judges’ curiosity and her two cast members will get a shot at being on the reality TV show that some-

Carlene Meredith Cogliati times gives budding artists a long-awaited break. “If we get a shot at national TV, then the hope is that my play will draw interest for someone to produce it,” she said. Carlene’s musical is more than some local theater group could perform. The cast is “easily 40 to 60,” she said, not including orchestra. And there are 10 main songs with twice that many varia-

‘We are the champions...’

CARLENE has been working on the production for more than half of her life. “I developed the initial idea over 30 years ago,” she said. “Twenty years ago, I did a little bit of writing. For the past five years, it’s basically consumed my life.” Carlene graduated from Iola High School in 1974. Her parents are Phyllis Meredith Shetlar, a local artist, and the late Leslie Meredith, a biology instructor at Allen Community College. After IHS, Carlene attended ACC for two years.

Colorado OKs Medicaid Expansion will add 330,000 to the rolls By ERIC WHITNEY Colorado Public Radio

The only real surprise about Colorado’s bill to expand Medicaid, now that it’s been approved by both legislative chambers, is that it won a vote from a Republican legislator. Sen. Larry Crowder from the San Luis Valley said he couldn’t vote against the bill when hospitals in his district are strained to the breaking point caring for the uninsured. Colorado hospitals strongly support the expansion, saying it will replace many of their unpaid bills with new Medicaid payments. Both chambers of Colorado’s legislature passed bills late last week to expand Medicaid as called for in the Affordable Care Act. The next step is the state Senate is expected to approve amendments to the House version of the bill on Tuesday and send it to the desk of Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, who has said he will sign it. “I have no choice but to support this,” said Crowder, whose rural district includes several of the state’s poorest counties. “I was opposed to Obamacare,” he said, but added that four of the seven hospitals in his district are in “serious financial trouble” and he felt obligated to vote for the bill because it will give uninsured patients a way to pay their bills. Over four committee hearings, Republican lawmakers were the only ones to speak against the bill. No individuals or groups testified that it should not be passed. Proponents, on the other hand, were

numerous and vocal. In testimony, advocates for the poor praised the expansion plan, saying it will finally extend coverage to adults without dependent children and tens of thousands of working Coloradans who make too little to afford private health policies. The state’s hospital association and largest physicians’ group testified in favor of the bill, as did the health insurance industry and the Colorado Competitive Council, a statewide association of chambers of commerce and business interests. “This is a way where everybody in the community is paying for,” unpaid hospital bills

racked up by the uninsured, said Travis Berry of the Council, “rather than just those employers that offer insurance to their employees.” Proponents say the expansion will also create 22,388 new jobs and boost the state’s economy by $4.4 billion.

This past Monday evening I had the distinct pleasure of addressing the Allen Community College Adult Education graduation. These folks are truly an inspiration. I don’t think the general public actually knows how hard it is to get a General Education Development degree otherwise known as a GED. For candidates to successfully complete the Kansas GED test they need to receive a minimum score of 420 on each of the test sections and an average score of 450 on all tests. This is based on a 200-800 scale. Courses to be tested on include language arts reading, language arts writing, mathematics, social sciences and science. That may seem like a typical high school curriculum, but think about this. If you only have a sixth-grade education and have been out of school for 30 years, how would you fare at algebra? Now imagine having to learn all this in a month’s time. My hat goes off to the dedicated and caring

staff at the Adult Ed program at ACC. Personnel include Julie Martin, director of the Adult Education Division, Karen Culver, teacher, and Jo Cuppy, teacher. The staff at the Burlingame cam-

Shelia Lampe Chamber Musings pus is just as dedicated. Martin said this year’s graduating class had a 54 percent rate of academic scholarships. So please welcome these graduates into our communities. Welcome them and if you are in the position to do so offer them a job. I think you will find some pretty talented and dedicated employees. Congratulations to all our graduates from area high schools and colleges. We want you to achieve your goals in life. We also will welcome you home. You are our future and it looks much brighter with all of you in it.

H Peace Continued from A1 The Brulls were married in 2008, after both graduated from Kansas State University. They left for Vanuatu that September. “We lived in Vanuatu two years and three months, typical Peace Corps service,” Sheridan said. Their permanent site, after three months training, was Maewo, one of the country’s least developed islands. “Our project work was mostly with teachers, many of whom had not received any sort of training on how to teach or run a classroom,” she said. “Many of our pictures and artifacts relate to the exceptional people we met in Vanuatu. Learning how to slow down and take time to ‘story’ — just sit and

chat — is one of the most valuable lessons we learned from the people of Maewo.

“Having lived in Vanuatu for over two years, we can honestly say that our time there was a

She had jobs in Texas and Louisiana before moving in 1982 to California to pursue a master’s in fine arts at Humboldt State University in northern California. “My boss at a theater in Baton Rouge recommended Humboldt,” she said. “I had learned from attending Emporia not to go to a big university if you want a hands-on experience. I wanted somewhere small. And I needed the countryside to refresh my brain.” She received her master’s in 1985 and never left the area. “I have the mountains, the ocean and Redwoods all within 10 minutes of my house,” she said. It’s also where she met her husband, Anthony, who also was involved in the Humboldt theater scene, which for a small community, is extremely active. “We have three community theaters, and a junior college and a university with theater departments,” she said.

Wolf Creek found at fault WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Federal regulators have sided with an engineer who was fired for reporting unsafe conditions created by a contractor at the Wolf Creek nuclear power plant in eastern Kansas. Attorneys said Friday the Occupational Safety and Health Administration ordered Enercon Services, of Kennesaw, Ga., to reinstate the whistleblower to his job at Wolf Creek with back pay. OSHA also ordered the engineering firm to pay $50,650 in damages plus attorneys’ fees and costs. Enercon and Wolf Creek did not immediately return phone messages. OSHA declined comment. The dispute stems from a trench dug directly over piping that circulates water to cool the plant. The engineer found it was too close to the pipes and refused to sign off on a plan that would have jeopardized the integrity of the pipes.

typical season sees eight to 10 musicals, she said. Writing the narrative, the libretto, for the musical came more naturally than writing the music, Carlene said. “I had to stretch my brain more for the music,” she said. “Sometimes the lyrics just seem to bring the music with them.” Carlene said she was raised with a love for music and that the female side of her family was musically inclined. As a youth, Carlene studied piano under Jean Barber, Grace Myers and Vivian Singer. HELPING her write the songs is Mat Bingham, an area musician. “He’s amazingly congenial, unlike a lot of artistic types,” Carlene said. She also credits her theatrically inclined community for helping with the production. “It’s rewarding to

work with creative people. It’s kind of like stone soup. It’s interesting to see what they each bring to the production,” she said. Two Humboldt-area high school seniors, Mira Weidman and Riley McFarland, perform the song “I Think I Should Know You” on the YouTube sight. To find the clip, enter “Humboldt Musical” on the America’s Got Talent site on YouTube. “Please give it a thumbs up,” Carlene said. An official title for her production has yet to be released, she said. “I want it to first get to the production stage before the name is out,” she said. The current title also gives credit to “all the people of Humboldt County who have helped with the show,” Carlene said. “I owe them. This is everyone’s show.”

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Jolie’s disclosure helps women face risks of cancer Thanks, Angelina. Obviously, I needed a kick in the pants. Wednesday afternoon I took the time and trouble to get a mammogram. Oh, so hard. Let’s see, it took 30 minutes, tops, out of my day with nothing but smiles and friendly small talk by Andrea Hottenstein, the radiology technician at Allen County Hospital. The hardest part was the self-inflicted anxiety while waiting for it all to begin. Several long, deep breathes as I glanced over at the torture chamber, the euphemistically named Mammomat Inspiration. Call me mammogramatically challenged. And then I don’t know what happened. It was over. No pain. No clenching of the jaw. Four simple positions and snap, I’m good to go. I am embarrassed to admit it, but it had been five years since my last mammogram. I know better. And at 57, I’m in that age bracket, 50 to 70, when breast cancer is most likely to occur. The average woman has a 12 percent chance of contracting breast cancer. That’s uncomfortably high and it’s a good bet most of us know someone who has weathered the disease. Angelina Jolie’s chances of getting breast cancer were estimated at 87 percent because of her genetic

Susan Lynn Register editor makeup. Her mother died at 56 from cancer. Those BRCA 1 and 2 genes also give her 50 percent odds of contracting ovarian cancer. The actress took preemptive measures and had a double mastectomy with breast reconstruction. Next, she will have her ovaries removed. Of the two cancers, ovarian cancer is the more deadly and the more difficult to detect. Most ovarian cancers reoccur and become increasingly resistant to chemotherapy. Only 50 percent of women who contract ovarian cancer survive. I’ve lost close friends to both breast and ovarian cancer. Sue was 43; Carol was 55. ANGELINA helped put a very public face on a very private decision. She should be commended for doing everything she can to beat the odds of contracting cancer. For those of us not considered high-risk, annual mammograms are recommended. I know, I know. Bring on the wet noodle.

We all should be hometown boosters Iola is mighty lucky to have a group of folks eager to make our little corner of the world prosper.

At Week’s End Bob Johnson

For years Ray Pershall was Mr. Iola when it came to enticing companies to put down roots here. Pershall — who also served as an Iola commissioner and mayor — did his homework. He knew what was feasible and would meet with approval. He had strong support in Iola Industries principals Ralph Moser, Max Snodgrass and Emerson Lynn, just to name a few. Gates Corporation, Russell Stover Candies and Herff Jones wouldn’t be the prominent employers in Iola they are today without those efforts. Russell Stovers, for example, in part chose Iola because of Pershall’s insistence that upscale concrete roads be built in the north industrial area. The torch has been passed,

with Iola Industries still at the helm. John McRae, as Iola’s mayor and since, has had a strong role in more recent years, along with Jerry Skidmore and Mary Kay Heard. It also has been to our very good fortune that David Toland was willing to leave a promising career in Washington, D.C., to come home and take the reins of Thrive Allen County six years ago. His personality is similar to Pershall’s, though he employs a more subtle approach. The intensity, however, is the same and city, county and Iola Industries leaders were smart to put him on their payrolls as a part-time economic development director. Toland has been instrumental in finding ways to use the former Haldex Brake plant. Catalyst Artificial Lift is being encouraged to move its Humboldt plant there to take advantage of larger quarters. While a handful of citizens are at the forefront of efforts to improve Iola’s — all of Allen County’s — economic lot, it is up to all of us to support what is done, talk up the town to strangers, tell about all the positives we have and, from our own perspective, understand how fortunate we are to live here.

How to privatize disabled services Should Kansas privatize services for the intellectually and developmentally disabled (ID/DD) population? The issue has brought a lot of heat this week.

Michael Smith Insight Kansas

On one side are the members of the Kansas House Appropriations Committee. Like the Brownback Administration, they are eager to include these expensive services in the state’s new, contract-based approach to Medicaid. This week, House Appropriations leaders announced that no money will be appropriated to reduce the long waiting lists for ID/DD assistance, until privatization is approved. Committee members believe they are tying cost savings to a shorter wait for services. Opponents call it extortion. The proposal is rather sketchy. Generally, the Brownback administration and House allies seek to replace the current approach, which relies on state employees along with not-for-profits paid by the state. Their new system would rely on insurance companies to manage the cases and subcontract the services. Yet the proposal has gone through multiple drafts and has yet to pass in final form, leaving many questions unanswered. For example, will county governments lose their role in overseeing such con-

tracts? Will ID/DD clients lose their one-on-one relationships with their case managers? We do not yet know. Alarmed opponents are funding an antiprivatization ad campaign. Even the pro-privatization Reason Foundation concedes the problem is complex. Voucher programs, individualized funding programs, reimbursement programs, and direct cash subsidy programs are four different approaches to privatization, with different strengths and weaknesses. Each has been implemented in several U.S. states and abroad.

opportunities to stay at home, and cost savings. If done poorly, they can be a disaster. Auger documents a long train of abuses — payments to providers that provided no care in Massachusetts, a private juvenile care facility in Colorado closed for gross mismanagement, a mental health system with no qualified oversight in Arizona, and $4 million stolen by employees of a New York group home for the mentally ill. Auger also notes that before embarking on a plan to contract, the state should insure that there are indeed

In order to work, the contracting process must be aggressively overseen by well-trained government employees with real authority.

Regarding services for children, all four approaches result in more families keeping them at home, fewer in institutional settings. Alas, the current controversy in Kansas concerns ID/DD adults, so this conclusion isn’t very helpful. However, it may hint at the possibility of more developmentally disabled being cared for by family members at home, receiving some state support. Deborah Auger of the University of Delaware surveyed the results of these privatization policies. Her bottom line: In order to work, the contracting process must be aggressively overseen by well-trained government employees with real authority. If done well, such policies may mean consumer choice, more

qualified providers throughout the state, able to deliver these services effectively. IF KANSAS does this, it needs to start by establishing an office of qualified people who understand the ID/ DD population and have real authority over contracting. Only such professionals can effectively survey the state’s providers (including insurance companies), to see who is qualified. Next, they write the contracts. Finally, they back them with aggressive oversight. For now, Governor Brownback and the House Appropriations Committee seem intent on putting forward a rather sketchy proposal, without the proper oversight in place.

Lawmakers are not pro-ed As lawmakers wrap up this year’s legislative session, they should wrap their heads around the challenges facing school districts and many Kansas families. And how little lawmakers have done to help. As of midday Monday, educators and social workers had identified 2,251 students attending Wichita public schools this year who were either living on the street, in shelters or with other families. That’s a record, and 518 more than last year. To put that number in perspective, if these 2,251 students constituted their own district, it would be larger than 248 of the state’s school districts. These children face many obstacles. They tend to be emotionally unsettled, and many are hungry and lack adequate clothing. Teachers and school social workers do their best to help, giving the children extra attention and often paying for supplies or eyeglasses.

Students are also pitching in. Some students at Woodman Elementary School formed a “Kindness Club” and sold chewing gum (and the right to chew it in school) to help the homeless children in the district. They raised $121.75 — not much, but every little bit helps. WHAT HAVE LAWMAKERS

done to help? The Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback are planning no increase in base state aid to schools next fiscal year, even though a three-judge panel ruled in January that the funding is unconstitutionally low and ordered it increased by at least $440 million. Meanwhile, the Kansas Department for Children and Families has been tightening rules on receiving state and federal assistance, while the Legislature passed a new law to drug test people who receive welfare or unemployment benefits. Lawmakers and Brownback are also balking at allowing an expansion

of Medicaid that would enable more than 150,000 Kansans to get needed insurance. Some lawmakers will say that the tax cuts approved last year were aimed at growing the economy, which could help more Kansans find jobs and afford a house or apartment. That would be great, if it works. But so far the tax cuts have mostly created budget problems. And those cuts were partly financed by reducing tax credits — so some low-income families are actually paying more in taxes now than before. If lawmakers go along with Brownback’s proposal to make permanent the statewide sales tax increase, low-income families will shoulder more of the tax burden. Vivian Schurig, a fourthgrader at Woodman, said of her school’s fundraising effort: “If something is wrong in our community, it is our job to settle it.” If only more state lawmakers felt the same. — The Wichita Eagle

Church distributing free shoes

Continued from A1

The First Church of the Nazarene is helping people to “get back on their feet,” so to speak. Today, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the church will be open for those needing a pair of shoes. The church has gathered donations from the Iola Senior Center, public and private donations to amass “hundreds” of pairs of shoes for those in need. “It’s to help with

them.” That, figuratively, is what she did: She saw children dying at the hands of the Nazis and saved as many as she could. In 2005, Felt and others took the “Life in a Jar” play to Poland and visited Sendler on her 95th birthday. Felt’s brother, then a freshman at UHS, played the part of a Nazi soldier. “When Irena hugged him she said something in Polish that caused everyone in the room — photographers and film crews — to laugh out loud. “Later we found out she said, ‘I never thought I’d hug a Nazi.’” Sendler died May 12, 2008, at 98.

Sendler’s letter also was packed with information, including that she had much help in saving the Jewish children. Of the collaborators, 24 were women and one a man. Sendler said she asked herself each day, during her covert efforts to help the children, whether “I did enough, could I have done more.” As it was, Sendler spent every day looking for children to save. Sometimes it took convincing parents or grandparents of the true danger their children faced. Sendler noted she wasn’t always successful. “Sometimes by the next day the child would have been deported,” she wrote. Many of the children were extracted from the ghetto through a church, with young boys — who might have been eligible for forced labor — sometimes dressed as girls and other children’s hair dyed blond to disguise their ethnicity. Once out of the ghetto, Sendler and her collaborators hid the children for the duration of the war.

project together and performed it as living history, including at a large high school in Kansas City, all the while wishing they could find a way to travel to Poland to meet Sendler and hear her story firsthand. After the Kansas City performance, “We went to the China Star, at 95th and McCall, to eat lunch,” Felt said. While there a businessman of Jewish descent, who had seen the performance, learned of their desire to travel to Warsaw to meet their heroine. “Within 24 hours we had the money to go,” Felt said. The experience was moving. “When we walked into Irena’s apartment, we hugged her and told her she was our hero,” Felt said. Sendler’s modest response was that she wasn’t a hero, that she “just did what anyone else would have done.” Sendler also told the girls she acted on advice she received from her father when on his deathbed: “If you see someone drowning in a river, you have to jump in and save

“When we would visit Kenna in the nursing home in Texas, we were so discouraged. We knew if we didn’t do something, Kenna was going to die. We feel so blessed now that Kenna is back in Iola. Windsor Place had everything ready for Kenna when she arrived. They made the transition beautifully smooth. The staff is phenomenal...always kind, attentive and most of all encouraging. We simply cannot express how grateful we are for everything Windsor Place has done for Kenna. They have made miracles happen. We are so very pleased.” Kenneth & Lois Sanders – Parents of Kenna Dodd, Resident of Windsor Place Kenna Dodds’ journey to Windsor Place was a difficult one. In October of 2010, Kenna suffered a massive cerebral aneurism. Brain surgery was required. Some very serious infections followed. To date, she has endured more than 30 procedures. After 10 weeks in the hospital ICU, Kenna was taken to a nursing home in Texas. What Kenna’s family hoped would be a place of healing and rehabilitation turned out to be quite the opposite. She was neglected with no opportunities for therapy of any kind. Kenna’s parents, who live in Iola, never gave up. They heard about Windsor Place and our outstanding therapy department. They worked continuously for more than two years to bring her here. In the beginning, certain laws kept Kenna from leaving Texas. Once that was cleared up, the

cost of the medi-flight to Iola was prohibitive. Finally, more than two years after the aneurism, Kenna finally got her chance to come to Iola. A local financial advisor, who owned a small plane, volunteered to fly Kenna to Iola at no charge. Kenna arrived at Windsor Place on February 15, 2013. Upon her arrival, Kenna’s condition told the story about what she had been through in the past two years. She had not received proper hygiene and she wasn’t able to move even one finger. Our staff went to work immediately giving Kenna the care and therapy services she so desperately needed. Just two weeks later, we could already see changes taking place. Her doctor came in and told her he couldn’t believe the progress she’d made. Kenna responded by saying, “I have hope.”

Mustang magic ride headed to state Iola rolls over Paola, Fort Scott for 4A regional crown By RICHARD LUKEN

richard@iolaregister.com

“ We’re

a scrappy team. We don’t have a bunch of power hitters, but we have guys who are aggressive. We are 100 percent scrappers. — Iola Mustang senior Mason Coons

GARNETT — As Levi Ashmore covered first base from the pitcher’s mound late Thursday, two things crossed his mind. First, he was worried whether the soft toss from first baseman Tyler Clubine would stick in his glove to record the final out in their regional championship game. Second on his mind? “Who was going to be my roommate in Salina,” he chuckled. Salina is the site of the Class 4A State Baseball Tournament. Thursday’s 7-3 win over Paola and 17-6 romp over Fort Scott puts Iola in the state tournament for the first time in the school’s nine-year-old baseball history. Iola (18-0) will take on Coffeyville’s Field Kindley High School at 11 a.m. Thursday at Salina’s Dean Evans Stadium. The winner will advance to the state semifinal and final round Friday. “I’ve told these guys that one of these years, Iola baseball is going to go to state,” Mustang coach Mark Percy said. “We’re as good as anybody, and these kids are focused right now.” The Mustangs punched their state ticket by responding immediately after both Paola and Fort Scott took early leads. Then, the Mustangs took control by use of their devastating brand of “small ball” — working the counts to get on base via hit or walk; staying uber-aggressive and advancing into scoring position in any way possible; then watching their opponents self-destruct. “We’re a scrappy team,” said senior Mason Coons, who picked up the win in the championship game. “We don’t have a bunch of power hitters, but we have guys who are aggressive. We’re 100 percent scrappers.” Iola trailed Fort Scott 2-0 and 3-2 in the title game before putting their first 11 batters on base in the bottom of the third. By the time the dust cleared, the Mustangs had plated 10 to go up 12-3. Coons and Drew Faulhaber

had RBI singles during the rally. Aaron Barclay and Clubine drew bases-loaded walks for RBIs. Eric Heffern was hit by a pitch with the bases full. Ashmore, who opened the inning with a single, had another single in his second at bat of the frame to drive in two. Coons and Weir capped the rally with RBI ground balls. The Tigers changed pitchers twice during the outburst, to no avail. “We knew when it was 6-3 that we had to keep going because their guys could hit the ball,” Ashmore said. “We had to stay aggressive.” “We’ve been successful all year because we don’t sit on our heels and get nervous,” Percy said. “The guys are aggressive, and they’ve been confident the whole year. We got behind in both games, but we didn’t lose our confidence.” Iola tacked on five in the fourth, spearheaded by Clubine’s leadoff triple. Faulhaber, Heffern and Ashmore followed with RBI singles. Trent Latta walked before Coons singled in Ashmore. Weir launched a double to the outfield that scored Latta, but Coons was gunned down at the plate in his attempt to end the game via Kansas’ 15-run mercy rule.

Beckham’s reach likely to extend past retirement

3A state softball bracket Manhattan-Twin Oaks Complex Humboldt High’s Lady Cubs are the third seed in their first trip back to state in two years. Unbeaten Silver Lake is the top seed.

PARIS (AP) — After David Beckham’s long and distinguished soccer career ends on an artificial turf field in northwestern France, his life promises to be perhaps even more glamorous than it already has been. Nearly 20 years after breaking into the Manchester United lineup, the 38-year-old former England captain won the French league title with Paris Saint-Germain this season. After announcing his retirement on Thursday, Beckham’s role in soccer will take on a new dimension worldwide. He has an ambassadorial role for Chinese soccer and for British television channel Sky, as well as an option to buy a franchise in Major League Soccer. “I would like to wish him all the best for all of his future projects,” PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi said. “We are talking about the possibility of continuing our work together.” But PSG may have to get in line, as the English Football Association also desperately wants him on board. This was the same Beckham who, although ruled out of the tournament through injury, insisted on traveling to South Africa to support his teammates at the 2010 World Cup. Beckham reportedly is being paid 20 million euros ($30.6 million) over five years to work as a Sky Television ambassador — showing the drawing power he

retains. “He’ll have more time on his hands and more time for commercial partners and the brands he can work or be associated with,” said Steve Martin, the chief executive of M&C Saatchi Sport and Entertainment. “He has also got so many commercial sponsors that will carry on whether he is playing or not.” He may develop business interests in the United States, too. Beckham had five decent years with the Los Angeles Galaxy from 2007-12, winning the championship in his last two seasons. He still has first refusal if he is offered an MSL franchise, although for now it remains unclear where that might take him. “I have the option of owning a franchise,” Beckham said in December, “and that excites me.” So that’s Europe and North America. What about Asia? Two months ago, part of Beckham’s future was already in full swing when he arrived in China. At the time, he said he hadn’t ruled out playing professionally in China one day. “Who knows? People keep saying that it will be my last club, it will be my last season,” he said. “I continue to play and I love playing, so we’ll see.” But any matches in China in the future will only be exhibition games — such as the one he is scheduled to play in November.

Aaron Barclay’s follow-up single tied the score. The game stayed tied until Weir opened the fifth inning with a single. Clubine walked. Faulhaber’s infield single gave Iola its first lead, 4-3.

Breakdown on budget talks By JOHN MILBURN Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Negotiations on the Kansas budget halted abruptly Friday after state senators demanded a final offer from the House that could lead to the end of the 2013 session. The talks had been scheduled for Friday morning, following three rounds of negotiations Thursday which saw legislators make steady progress on the budget for the next two fiscal years. Senate Ways and Means Chairman Ty Masterson asked his House counterpart to move the process further along, seeking a final offer on higher education and a state employee salary cap that would pass the GOP-dominated House. But House Appropriations Committee Chairman Marc Rhoades said that request couldn’t be accommodated and canceled Friday’s meetings. “We can’t do that,” Rhoades said of meeting the pressure to have a final solution quickly. “It will take time for us to get a final, final offer. I don’t fault the chairman. Those are his marching orders.” The Newton Republican said he hopes to meet with House leaders and resume talks with the Senate on Monday. Senate President Susan Wagle planned a news conference later Friday to discuss the impasse. The breakdown in talks came a day after a rare joint caucus of House and Senate Republicans where members expressed a desire to work together to resolve issues over the $14.5 million budget and find a compromise on taxes. Soon after the meeting, budget negotiators conducted three rounds of talks and pared their list to a

handful of items. “Clearly we are at an impasse,” Sen. Laura Kelly, a Topeka Democrat and member of the Senate budget negotiating team, said Friday. “How do we do a budget when we don’t even know how much revenue we have? We should do taxes first.”

How do we do a budget when we don’t een know how much revenue we have? We should do taxes first.

She said no budget that’s been on the table so far would cut enough money in the long term to match revenue projections. “We don’t have the revenue because we cut income taxes last year,” Kelly said. Major sticking points remain the House desire to cut spending at state universities, community colleges and technical centers by 4 percent. The Senate initially sought a 2 percent cut, but Masterson countered with a 1 percent reduction in both 2014 and 2015. The House rejected that. The House is also holding fast to a desire to cap state employee salaries at certain agencies, saving more than $63 million. Certain agencies could request additional funding from the State Finance Council including the Department of Transportation, corrections, Kansas Highway Patrol and state hospitals. GOP senators have offered an alternative that would provide additional revenues for salaries and wages to blunt the impact sought by the House.

Kansas briefs Kansas moves to enact law on lobbying

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas lawmakers are close to approving limits on the use of state tax dollars to lobby federal, state or local officials on gun control issues. The Senate approved the measure on a 31-6 vote Friday. The House could consider the measure as early as Monday. House approval would send the bill to Gov. Sam Brownback, who is a strong gun-rights supporter but hasn’t said publicly whether he’d sign the measure. The bill would bar state and local officials from using state funds to prepare materials or broadcast advertising that promote or oppose gun control measures. They also couldn’t hire lobbyists on the issue with state funds. Proponents of the measure say Kansans don’t want their tax dollars used on lobbying. Critics said the bill is vague.

Legislature provides funds for ranch

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A ranch for troubled boys in Sedgwick County will stay open after Kansas lawmakers agreed to provide $750,000 in funding for next year, county officials said. Although the state budget is not final, budget negotiators in the Kansas House and Senate said Thursday money will be provided for the Judge James V. Riddel Boys Ranch, a juvenile correctional facility at Lake Afton, The Wichita Eagle reported. Facing a $9.3 million shortfall in the Sedgwick County budget, officials seriously considered closing the ranch, which provides life-skills training, education and counseling for youths who live at the facility. Officials said the difference between the cost of providing full-time housing and services for up to 49 boys and the state’s share was too great. Last year, Sedgwick County paid $201 a day per boy, with the state paying $126 of that.

Benign tremor can cause issues Dear Dr. Roach: I have been diagnosed with benign essential tremor. I have seen several experts and tried many medications, none of which have been very helpful. I recently read about focused ultrasound. Can you tell me anything about it? I have no desire for brain surgery for deep brain stimulation. — A.M. Answer: Benign essential tremor is a common movement disorder. The word “essential” just means we don’t really understand what causes it, although a genetic mutation is postulated. Although it is called

“benign,” the effects of the tremor can be significant. The tremor most commonly is in the hands, but can be in the head or voice as well, and less commonly in the legs or trunk. It runs very strongly in fami-

Many people notice that alcohol temporarily improves the tremor, which is helpful for diagnosis, but not treatment. Treatment can include medications, including beta blockers and antiseizure medicines. They help many people with this condition. However, as many as 30 percent of people do not get better with medication. There are several surgical treatments. They involve the thalamus, a deep area of the brain involved in motor function. Surgery on the thalamus was shown back in the 1950s to improve the tremor, but in the 1990s, deep brain stimulation

— a wire placed into that area of the brain — was shown to be as effective, with fewer side effects. More recently, radiation and ultrasound have been studied. They can direct energy precisely to the thalamus, and can, in theory, provide the same benefits without surgery. Ultrasound may be better because the benefits show up immediately, as opposed to radiation, which takes several weeks to work. The initial studies are very promising, but it is a very new technique, and studies are ongoing that will need to be completed before the procedure can be routinely recommended.

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.

SPEED FREAKS

A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves

Getty Images for NASCAR

Think what you want, but we’re pretty sure their mother loves them.

Have you figured out the format for the All-Star Race?

GODSPEAK: No, but that just adds to the mystery of the event. Instead of just asking “Who’s gonna win?” we can also ask “How many laps?” and “What’s a segment?” KEN’S CALL: It’s sponsored by Sprint, and it figures. Only a cellphone company could produce such a scenario.

Both Busch brothers appear to be angry at the same time. Should we be scared?

GODSPEAK: There is “Busch brothers angry” and there’s “NFL linebacker angry.” The Busch boys are for amusement only. KEN’S CALL: Good to see Kyle returning to form. Just enjoy the show.

HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ

PLAYING HURT Denny Hamlin continued an age-old NASCAR tradition by playing hurt in Saturday night’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway. Hamlin, who is recovering from a fractured lower vertebra suffered in a crash at Texas Motor Speedway, got his doctor’s approval to compete in the rugged Sprint Cup event at the series’ oldest superspeedway oval. Driving a race car while recovering from a racing injury is nothing new in stock-car circles. Some of the stories are epic. For instance, Bobby Allison drove for a stretch of races with a broken back. He was placed in and removed from his car by an engine hoist. In 1990, Darrell Waltrip crashed hard at Daytona in practice for what we now call the Coke Zero 400. His left leg was shattered and required plates, rods and screws to put it back together at Halifax Health Medical Center. Waltrip missed the 400 but started the next Cup race two weeks later at Pocono Raceway. He wisely sat out the next five races in order for his leg to heal properly. Dale Earnhardt broke his shoulder blade at Talladega’s summer race, started the following week at Indianapolis before pitting to let Mike Skinner finish the run. The week after Indy, Earnhardt sat on the pole at Watkins Glen and stayed in the seat to finish sixth. The list is endless, but Hamlin knows how to play hurt. In 2010, he had surgery to his left knee to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Three weeks later, still hobbled, he won at Texas. Saturday night, Hamlin finished second to Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth. “Watching the races from the sidelines for five weeks, it’s tough,” Hamlin said. “You know you can change things. You can do things to change your outcome. But you’re not in the race car. My back held up good. I’m more sore, shoulders, neck, things like that. I got to get back in racing shape. It will take time to get back to where I need to be.”

AP/AJ MAST

Let’s make it easier for Michael Andretti and Kurt Busch to do business.

“Lucy and I had a great time dancing the night away,” said Hill, who finished 33rd at Darlington.

Can someone explain the Kurt Busch flirtation with the Indy 500 ?

FoMoCo, huh?

Ford Motor Co. honchos have to be scratching their heads back in Dearborn, Mich., as they scan the Cup Series to date. Ford’s lead dog, Roush Fenway Racing, has put up just one win (Carl Edwards, Phoenix) in 2013. Ford has just one other win (Talladega) in ‘13, by David Ragan, who drives for Ford’s B Team, Front Row Motorsports. Edwards was the only “Blue Oval” driver to finish top-10 at Darlington. Back to the drawing board? The guess here is that Ford engineers are camping out around the drawing board.

In short, it’s good for business. Everybody’s business, particularly Kurt Busch’s business. He appears to be extremely hungry to become a front-page guy again — and for all the right reasons this time. Hooking up with IndyCar owner Michael Andretti to run a “rookie test” at Indy is the type of thing that gets everyone’s attention, and garnering attention is a big deal with racers who want bigger and better things.

Just a test, right?

It appears so. Kurt doesn’t think it’s feasible to run the Indy-Charlotte double, and he’s probably right. But that brings us back to the issue that someone needs to eventually address: Do something to facilitate an Indy 500 entry for the biggest names in North American motorsports, which just so happen to run under the NASCAR banner. The impetus, however, might be changing. AP/REED SAXON

How?

The back of that uniform smells like Bengay.

During the past decade or so, with NASCAR dwarfing IndyCar in terms of popularity, it was Indy that needed to make the logistical change necessary for an easy double-dip for NASCAR stars. Moving the Indy 500 to Saturday would be the easiest move, but no dice. But now, with NASCAR looking for ways to jump-start the ratings and merchandise numbers, maybe the Boys in Daytona should be willing to work with the Indy folks in an effort to rev up some late-May interest. Make it happen; EVERYBODY wants it. Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR for The Daytona Beach News-Journal for 27 years. Reach him at ken.willis@news-jrnl.com

No tuxedos in Talladega

Now we know why Cup Series rookie Timmy Hill missed the race at Talladega Superspeedway. He had more important things to do that weekend — going to prom. Hill escorted girlfriend Lucy Kennedy to the Ragsdale High School prom in Jamestown, N.C., the night before the Aaron’s 499. Terry Labonte, who didn’t have a prom date, drove the No. 32 Ford at Talladega.
