A LIFE OF INTRIGUE
By BOB JOHNSON email@example.com
Murl D. Munger observed Memorial Day services Monday at Highland Cemetery.
Munger an expert in foreign policy By SUSAN LYNN firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s one thing to spout off. It’s another to know what you’re talking about. So when Dee Munger says he thinks U.S. foreign policy is “adrift,” it helps to know he has spent his life in the company of world leaders and their military might. Munger, 81, was in town over the Memorial Day weekend for his 65th class reunion from Iola High School. Born and mostly bred in Iola, Munger also served with Iola’s National Guard unit from 1968 to 1973, including as its commanding officer of the 3rd Battalion 137th Infantry unit.
In 1973, Munger moved to Carlisle, Pa., where he began a career of foreign service through the Strategic Studies Institute after graduating from the U.S. Army War College. He’s traveled to 42 countries in the line of duty that had him meeting sometimes with heads of state to assess their relationship to the United States. “I was a collector of information,” Munger said, reporting either directly or indirectly to the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense, and even the White House. Munger has investigated the growth of state-sponsored
terrorism beginning with the Soviet Union during the Cold War and up through current times in the Mideast; reported on the civil unrest in Central America; investigated the underwater sonar system used to detect submarines; and studied the war on drugs and border patrol along the U.S.Mexico border, just to name a few of his areas of concentration. THOUGH there’s probably not a stauncher defender of American values, Munger doesn’t necessarily see it as the role of the U.S. to try to See MUNGER | Page A5
Allen County Hospital, which will have Regional added to its name July 1, does more than just provide health care for Iola area residents. Ron Baker, its administrator, pointed out the hospital also brings revenue to town through charges for services and salaries paid 150 staff. Baker spoke at a See, Hear Iola presentation Friday morning. Baker noted the current hospital opened in 1952, having been built at a cost of $618,000 and at its peak had 65 beds in the late 1970s. Then, with charges diagnosis-driven, “we often had all the beds filled and people in the halls,” said Baker, who worked there as a lab technician after graduating from the University of Kansas. That changed in 1982 when the federal government adopted a method of charging for services that Baker said resembled the flat-rate method used with car repairs. “If a patient came with pneumonia,” he said, as an example, “the ‘book’ might say the cost of making the patient well was $5,000. If it took less than expected, the hospital made more money; if it took more, the hospital made less.” Efforts were made to get patients in and out quickly. “The only way to survive
Ron Baker was the speaker at See, Hear Iola Friday. was high volume,” Baker said, with small hospitals losing out to those in metropolitan areas. In 2005, the federal government began reimbursing for Medicare patients on a cost-basis, plus 1 percent, helping rural hospitals with predominantly older populations such as Allen County. The case for critical access hospitals also came into play for rural areas such as Iola. These have a limit of 25 beds. Critical access hospitals don’t provide long-term inpatient care “and you’re not likely to see highly technical procedures, such as openheart surgery, done at Allen County,” he said. ACH is here an “an access point to help” in the health care stream. The local hospital, and others like it, do have a role See ACH | Page A7
Students learn service
THAT’S A WRAP
By BOB JOHNSON email@example.com
Two Iola seniors-to-be learned more about Rotary International’s encouragement of adult members to put service above self in a leadership experience. Arion Kunkler and Scout Henry attended RYLA Camp — Rotary Youth Leadership Awards — at Tahlequah, Okla., April 3-7. They related their experiences and gratitude for the opportunity to Iola Rotarians, their sponsors, Thursday. Henry noted the camp emphasized leadership and communication skills while breaking the campers out of their comfort zones. “For me it was an incredible, lifechanging experience,” Henry said. “It empowered me to think I really could change the world. I’ve always wanted to help people, but didn’t know how,” and thinks she now will be able to apply techniques she learned in the Rotary program. An object of the camp was to promote cooperation, done at times
Arion Kunkler, left, and Scout Henry in an unconventional manner and sometimes with controversial topics, including gay marriage, which “had us learning to cooperate” and accept, Henry said. See SERVICE | Page A3

Southwind rail trail nears finish By STEVEN SCHWARTZ firstname.lastname@example.org
For three serious-minded men, Don Burns, David Toland, and Pat Haire were positively giddy as they stood on the Southwind Trail south of town. In only a year after they began breaking trail, the seven-mile stretch from Iola to Humboldt is all but finished. It was on June 1, 2012, that a group of volunteers began working to clear the trail. Toland said it has been a
“combination of a motivated group of volunteers and the pressure of grants that had a 12-month limit,” that kept the work on track. But, as Burns put it simply, “we just wanted to get it done.” The others nodded in agreement. “There’s your quote,” Toland replied. The ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the extension of the rail trail is at 2 p.m. next Saturday, and will take place where the Prairie Spirit Trail and the Southwind Trail meet at Riverside Park.

Obituaries Edward Gabel
Edward Martin Gabel, 99, Lenexa, passed away Wednesday, May 29, 2013. Visitation will be 9:3010:30 a.m., today, followed by Mass of Christian burial at 10:30 at Christ the King Catholic Church, 3024 N. 53rd St., Kansas City, Kan. Burial will follow at Gates of Heaven Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Compassionate Care Hospice. Edward was born March 13, 1914, in Piper, to Martin Joseph and Thereisa Catherine (Deister) Gabel. He attended old Catholic High School and graduated from Ward High School in 1933. During World War II, he served his country working at the Sunflower Ordinance Plant in De Soto. while attending night classes at Kansas University. After the war, he completed his electrical schooling at Fin-
ley Engineering College. Refrigeration and air conditioning were beginning to be developed for use in stores a n d homes and he was able to learn about Edward Gabel t h i s industry at the beginning. He took a job at the Kroger Company installing and maintaining refrigeration equipment and was employed by Kroger until his retirement. He loved birds and built bird feeders and bird houses. He especially liked wrens and built dozens of wren houses. He provided wren houses to anyone in the family who wanted one and built houses for Sanctuary of Hope. He drew all sorts of birds to numerous feed-
ers in his yard and waged an ongoing war with the raider squirrels. Ed liked to hunt and fish, and even in his later years, he was still looking for those elusive pheasants or dropping a line in the water whenever he had the chance. He was preceded in death by his wife of 65 years, Mary Magdalen Wille, his daughter, Carol Ann, and grandson, James Edward Watson. Four children survive him: Janet (Jim) Watson, Overland Park, Linda Klindt, Lenexa, Barbara (Joe) Williams, Edwardsville, and Edward (DeAnn) Gabel, Kansas City, Kan. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. The family is most appreciative of the loving care provided by Sunrise Assisted Living and Compassionate Care Hospice.

Be wary of scammers With all the weather we have been having and with more to come, we will continue to have out-of-town and out-ofstate roofing companies come in to take advantage of your hard luck. Please do your homework. Try to use someone local that you know or if you must use one of the other companies, do a background check. In the past we have had complaints of work that is not up to par and the company has left town. The Kansas attorney general’s office will go after these folks if enough information is available. But, I encourage you to err on the side of caution. The Iola citywide garage sale is today and it looks to be great weather for it. We have had several sign up to be on the list. You can pick up the listings and maps at
the Iola Rotary pancake feed from 6 a.m. to noon. It is at the Masonic Hall, 213 W. Madison. You can also pick up listings at Iola Pharmacy, Casey’s General Store, Pump-N-

Pete’s, Jump Start and Ray’s Mini Mart. Colony and Erie are also having citywide sales today, so if you are a garage sale fan it is a perfect way to spend the day. The Chamber Cash Mob will not be held in June and July. There are ball games, band concerts/ice cream socials, Allen Community College Play in the Park and the farmers market,
just to mention a few of the activities going on. There is so much to do and I want to encourage people to get out and take advantage of all that is going on. But, I want to encourage you to continue to walk and shop on Thursday evening as you are on the square for the entertainment. The Cash Mob will return in August so be watching for the notices. Last but not least I want to thank Pam Beasley and the emergency management team. They have been on top of storms coming through. They have all the shelters open and ready for folks. Please listen to the radio, TV and weather radios; they even have a Facebook page. Pay attention to the situation at hand. These folks do a great job of informing the public. Do your part and be safe.

~ Journalism that makes a difference
Local control loses meaning Many Kansas legislators take exception to what’s sent the state’s way by the federal government. They turned back federal compensation for expanded Medicaid coverage over the next three years, with the provision that the state would assume 10 percent of the cost after that. Their excuse is Washington might renege, seemingly without considering the outcome being many poor Kansans will just have to do without. They rail about the Affordable Care Act, which is the law of the land and is going forward regardless of whether Kansas signs on to participatory advantages. And they abdicated responsibility to design our own exchange by not accepting funding for that, too. The thinking is Obama and his Democrat cronies just want to subjugate us all. The misguided response? We’ll show them. Take concealed carry. When concealed carry first arose, local option determined whether guns could be carried under a coat or in a hip pocket in buildings under the thumb of cities, counties and schools. Most governing bodies decided to put their facilities off limits. They feared an argument, fit of contentiousness or a misunderstanding might lead to a scene from the Old West. A gunfight unfolding in the courthouse lobby would create far more problems than it solved, was their reasonable analysis. That wasn’t good enough
for the new crop of lackluster legislators. They are more concerned about flexing their power to vote and appeasing lobbyists who are eager for an atmosphere in Kansas conducive to firearms, and the commercial advantages that come with it. The result: A law that takes effect July 1 opens just about every public building to concealed firearms. LET’S LOOK closer. The lion’s share — and probably then some — of Kansans who have taken concealed carry classes and earned certification are mighty fine folks. They are honest, hard-working and care about their communities; citizens we’re all pleased to call friends and neighbors. There is every reason to think that a very small percentage ever will take advantage of concealed carry certification to the point of “packing heat” each time they leave home. They may carry a handgun hidden away in their vehicle, but going to the trouble of actually carrying one is another matter. That isn’t the point that should concern. Our focus should be on the intrusiveness of the Legislature, with members far too eager to pander to big interest groups and make local entities suffer for it. The vast majority of Kansans are being ignored to a favored few. — Bob Johnson
Searching for handholds I used to listen to the radio getting ready for work. My cadre of NPR friends included Renee Montagne and Steve Inskeep as hosts of Morning Edition and reporters Nina Totenberg on the Supreme Court, Ari Shapiro with the White House beat, Corey Flintoff on international affairs, and Ina Jaffee on the national desk.
Susan Lynn Register editor
I wouldn’t know them if I saw them, but if they spoke I’d be flipping through a mental Rolodex trying to place them. The news team briefed me on what to look for in longer form once I got to work. Ever since the first of the year, I stopped the radio habit. I found the news was more
noise while I was dealing with my dad’s illness. Now that he’s gone, it seems I still need some space, some quiet, some time to try to process his death. His absence still catches me off guard. My other morning ritual is to read the morning’s New York Times online. I still go through the routine, but more and more I find myself in a fog and browsing through non-newsy things, such as the real estate section. “House Hunting in Ireland,” was this week’s mansion du jour. There’s also the page “What you get for $4 million,” or some such price. I don’t think they’ve ever gone below $700,000, but the sky’s the limit for the upper prices. Location determines the price. A one-bedroom cottage in Seattle is listed for just shy of $1 million. No kidding. The asking price for an 11-room penthouse in New York City is $17 million. I’m not sure what I get from looking at all this high-end real estate except maybe some
decorating terms: doubleheight ceiling, casement windows, butler’s pantry, trompe l’oeil walls, en suite bathroom. I’ve also learned from viewing hundreds of homes that stoves are a status symbol. The Italian brand Smeg sells for $3,000. But a German Miele or a U.S. Viking model can top that by another grand, easy. Same goes for bathroom fixtures and furniture. I’m glad the reporters frequently include the prices for such things. Makes me appreciate our local appliance and furniture offerings. I’m afraid if I really paid $20,000 for a bathtub I wouldn’t have the good taste to remove the price tag. THE CLINICAL diagnosis for what I’m going through is grief, an all-encompassing term that gives all kinds of allowances. Thank goodness. I don’t really know of any other way to “move on,” than to cut myself some slack. I need time to find new handholds.
Taxing vision shortsighted KC Royals testing this fan’s patience The Kansas Legislature, the vast majority of whom are of the same party (Republican), and the vast majority of whom are all of the same ideology (conservative), have found it very difficult to find any kind of common ground on taxes. Taxes of all things! Who could have predicted this? The legislature was supposed to be out of Topeka in 80 days. All was going to be “guns and roses.”
Joseph Aistrup Insight Kansas And then, the taxing thing hit. The 2012 tax cut law was not as dynamic as advertised. The additional jobs, which were supposed to be created because entrepreneurs kept “their” money and invested it back in Kansas, did not produce any more jobs and it produced less tax revenue than would have been created in Kansas without it. And here’s the big reality — it will never do so. There are a couple of major reasons for this. Capital is fluid. In our global economy, capital will move to wherever the profits are greatest. We are a state of less than 3 million people in a global economy of over 7 billion people. The calculus is straightforward. It’s usually about labor costs, not tax policy. If production can be done for more profit overseas, it will be. Ask Nike or Apple. However, when there are exceptions to this rule of thumb,
location, location, location dominates, not taxation. Kansas does have some inherent advantages in the animal and natural resource extraction industries. Our location for these businesses helps us. Unfortunately, for most other industries, our location does not help. We have long winters, no beaches with ocean views, and no mountain scenery, each of which can matter for where capital flows in the U.S. and the rest of the more developed world. Small business development is triggered in response to this flow of capital and the demands for goods and services that it creates. Tax policy has only a small impact. So where does this leave us as a state? We are attempting to implement a solution — elimination of income taxes — that
property and sales taxes, both of which are by design regressive. In the past, our tax system used the progressive income tax to balance this regressivity. If we eliminate the progressive income tax, the regressive nature of our sales and property tax systems will disproportionately punish the poorest among us and elderly on fixed incomes. This is cruel. Second, the sales tax can become more neutral if we apply it to the sales of all goods and services, exempting only groceries, physician services, and prescription drugs. A similar story also applies to the property tax. It too will be less regressive if we expand its base to all forms of property. Both reforms will ensure that all citizens and businesses will share the tax load and best of
We are attempting to implement a solution — elimination of income taxes —that has no chance of producing its advertised effect, producing jobs ... has no chance of producing its advertised effect, producing jobs, population growth, and tax revenue beyond what we would have experienced without it. Something tells me that this does not matter. Some of our duly elected leaders believe they are right and they are determined to implement their taxing vision. Given this reality, then we should at least reform our tax system the right way. First, we should recognize the nature of the problem. Eliminating income taxes will lead to a greater reliance on
all, the tax rates for both types of taxes will be lowered. Third, when faced with what seemed like daunting policy reforms, our Kansas ancestors brought together political friend and foe into commissions, working groups or task forces. They accessed expertise and melded together ideas to develop policies to make Kansas a better place. We need to follow the lead of our ancestors and create a “Taxing Commission” to properly reform our taxing system. Aistrup is a political science professor at Kansas State University.
The Kansas City Royals have collapsed like a paper tent in a rainstorm, but the swoon hasn’t dulled my enthusiasm for the boys in blue. Sometimes, though, I have to steel myself. I try not to question Ned Yost’s wisdom as manager, although it’s difficult at times. Such as Wednesday night when Aaron Crow flew in from the bullpen and opened the flood gates for a Cardinal victory. I had labored, obviously delusional, under the impression the Royals were breaking out of their funk, and maybe that occurred Thursday night in their rain-soaked 4-2 victory. It is a long season, I tell myself. More than 100 games remain and anything can happen, although that has been a recurring rationalization of mine for nearly 50 years. I began following major league baseball when the Philadelphia A’s moved to Kansas City in 1955. Those early days had a bit of a circus atmosphere. Many of the A’s players were cast-offs — usually from the Yankees — or young players who never lived up to expectations. Hank Bauer, a former Yankee star, played at old Municipal Stadium
in the twilight of his career. Lou Klimchock was a whizbang minor league hitter, but never could solve major

league pitching. My interest bordered on obsession, to the point that several seasons I never missed a single game. I had a Hitachi transistor radio with an earphone that kept me in touch with the play-by-play. I’ve seen my share of games in Kansas City, even watched Jim Colborn pitch a no-hitter against the Texas Rangers in 1977. Nowadays, most of my viewing is from an easy chair, with a computer nearby so I can occupy myself with something else when futility on the TV screen exceeds my tolerance. LATE NOTE: Maybe George Brett’s appointment as hitting coach Thursday afternoon will make a difference — there’s always hope.

As for Iraq, “It should have been divided into three countries, among the Shiites, Sunnis and
Kurds,” Munger said of their religious factions. “Their differences are irreconcilable. We’re not going to change that.” Same goes for the current insurgency in Syria. Munger contends current foreign policy under President Obama is at loose ends. “He’s attempting to do too much with too little help from our allies,” he said. “You can’t go in and kill all the bad guys, because there’s a neverending supply. When dealing with a foreign country, you have to be
careful. The best course is to win the hearts and minds of the people, by teaching them farming methods and how to start up new businesses.” Munger said the reserve forces, those who combine a military career with a civilian career, are the most effective in working with the people of a foreign country such as Afghanistan. “They have the crews with expertise,” he said. “There’s always competition between the reserve forces and active forces for funding. But when a long-term project is at hand, you need

CHICAGO (AP) — Tally another big win for billionaire Donald Trump in his legal battle with an 87-year-old who claimed “The Apprentice” star cheated her in a skyscraper-condo deal. A judge in Chicago sided with Trump Friday on two outstanding allegations, following last week's related civil trial in which jurors also gave the nod to the real estate magnate. In her 38-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve agreed with Trump that Jacqueline Goldberg was "a sophisticated" investor who could not plausibly claim to have been duped. The Evanston woman alleged Trump promised her profit sharing if she bought two condos at the glitzy Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago, but said he reneged after she committed to buy. But Goldberg signed a buyers' contract giving Trump rights to withdraw the offer, and Goldberg had plenty of time to cancel the purchases without penalty, the judge concluded. “Ms. Goldberg's lack of urgency” to pull out of the purchases when she still could "undercuts her argument that the changes (about profit sharing) were such an outrageous surprise,” St. Eve wrote. Goldberg — who the judge noted has a master's degree in accounting — knew or should have known the risk of the profit-sharing deal being withdrawn, the judge said. Goldberg signed her contract in 2006 before the hotel-condo was completed and so, the judge said,

Trump may well have had “understandable” business reasons for altering the contract terms. Trump's lawyer, Stephen Novack, called Friday's ruling "decisive" and “thorough,” adding that it meant his client has now prevailed on all the core legal issues. Goldberg's attorney, Shelly Kulwin, said he was disappointed. “I respectfully disagree with (the ruling), obviously,” he said. Asked about the possibility of an appeal on either the judge's or jury's rulings, Kulwin said, “We are discussing it with our client.” The case stemmed from a lawsuit filed by Goldberg in 2009. Jurors rejected the fraud-related allegations, and St. Eve decided the claims about a breach of contract and violation the Illinois Condominium Act — siding with Trump on both. The sometimes-acrimonious jury trial, which lasted a week, featured two days of testimony by Trump. He told jurors about the contract stipulation, contending that Goldberg bought the condos knowing it was there. “And then she sued me,” he boomed, raising his arms. “It's unbelievable!” Goldberg, who had sought damages totaling around $6 million, told reporters after the jury decision went against her last week that she had no regrets about suing Trump. “I think I have exposed him for what he is. I had to try,” she said. A little later the same day, Trump criticized Goldberg for taking him to court, saying, “She should be ashamed of herself.”

If you look closely enough, you may just spot the red fox sunning itself on the Southwind Trail on Thursday afternoon.
H Southwind Continued from A1 terminal is just east of B&W Trailer Hitches in Humboldt. It hasn’t been easy getting to the finish, however. TRAIL
Dave Fontaine was busy during the time of the interview, working to get bollards into position at the points where the trail intersected public roads. He, along with several other volunteers, saw the potential in the trail when they began clearing out the brush and debris — with the help of Joe Works’ equipment from B&W Trailer Hitches. “It was more or less realizing the potential at that point,” Haire said. He and Burns said they knew when they finished the first two miles of the clearing, the trail was going to see fruition. They could see “the light at the end of the tunnel.” Most people they conferred with said a trail of Southwind’s magnitude would take two to three years to complete. While Toland said the first email regarding the trail was sent in 2008, the physical labor will be finished one year to the day. “This is a case study
for building a first-class trail with minimal resources,” Toland said. Haire said he has run on the Flint Hills Nature Trail in the past. He described the different sections as “chapters” that described the efforts of the volunteers involved. Some sections were clean and orderly, while others were cluttered and difficult to maneuver. He said they hope the Southwind Trail will have its own unique chapter. “Our chapter will read as success and/or quality, maximizing the potential in the trail,” Haire said. “More quality per mile.” BURNS SAID they have seen their ups and downs when working on the sections. Clearing brush in the summer heat took its toll on the volunteers. “We were really looking forward to B&B Cafe at the end of those days,” Burns laughed. The first day they cleared Elm Creek Bridge, which all three described as their most difficult task, it was 17 degrees as a high temperature. “We had a ball,” Burns said. And now that things are finished, all of the volunteers can breathe a
sigh of relief. “I’m so damn proud of this trail,” Burns said. “It means a lot to me,” Haire said. “At this time in my life, it’s an extraordinary way to maximize the time I have.” The three men walked along the trail and reflected on the work they had finished, along with the help of the numerous volunteers. They examined the surface of the trail, kicking areas that seemed to need attention. THE TRAIL is owned by the Sunflower Rails to Trails Conservancy, and the volunteers have signed an official agreement that will commit them to the upkeep of the trail. The volunteers will mow, remove weeds, pick up trash and maintain the area. Allen County assisted in part, by grading the trail and operating heavier machines. The ribbon cutting starts at 2 p.m., and Toland said he encourages people to bring their bicycles and running or walking shoes; to hit the trail after the ceremonies. The Southwind Trail volunteers also encourage everyone to attend the ribbon cutting for the Neosho River Memorial Park in Humboldt, which starts at 5 p.m.
USD 258 opens field to young players HUMBOLDT — Young Humboldt football players will get a taste this fall of what for them will be the big time. USD 258 board members Tuesday night approved use of the district’s new football field, cloaked in artificial turf, by youth recreation teams.
The field is part of a sports complex, including baseball and softball fields and track and field accommodations, at the east edge of town, expected to be completed by mid-summer. Board members approved a bid of $68,850 from Double E Construction, LaHarpe, to construct a parking
lot south of the high school. The bid was one of three. Otherwise in a meeting that lasted just 31 minutes, board members approved a number of supplemental contracts for the 201314 school year, for such things as coaching and organization and program supervision.

H ACH Continued from A1 in more advanced care by giving patients who undergo sophisticated procedures a place close to home to recover â€” termed swing bed care. â€œItâ€™s much easier on family and friends to visit in a hospital close to home rather than have to drive back and forth to Wichita or Kansas City,â€? he said. Swing bed care may go on for as long for six weeks, when a patient is recovering from something as immobilizing as major hip surgery, Baker noted. Allen County is a major player in out-patient care, which doesnâ€™t require being admitted to the hospital, he said. Baker also said the hospital was negotiating with Via Christi of Wichita to keep open the Iola Medical Associates clinic, 401 S. Washington Ave. Dr. Earl Walter retired Friday. Dr. Wesley Stone and Margaret Lesher, nurse practitioner, will continue at the clinic. â€œWeâ€™re going to keep it rolling,â€? Baker said. Ground was broken for the new hospital, just north of town on Kentucky Street, a year ago and is expected to open about Oct. 1. Much new and computerized equipment will accompany the opening, but it may be a while before the hospital will be able fi-
Wastewater project ready nancially to purchase its own magnetic resonance imaging device. â€œIt will cost about $1.5 million,â€? Baker said. Meanwhile, the hospital has arranged for a new vendor to bring a trailer-borne MRI to the hospital three days a week, rather than two. The advantage of an MRI on site also would mean having one with a larger â€œbore,â€? or the opening through which patients pass. Baker said a machine less confining would be popular. In answer to a question, Baker doesnâ€™t think Medicare reimbursement will be an issue for critical access hospitals, even though World War II baby boomers are starting to take advantage. Today, 40 to 50 percent of hospitals are critical access, but they consume just 4 to 6 percent of Medicare reimbursement funding, he said. â€œIf they (the feds) are going to look at changes, theyâ€™re going to go for the big bucks,â€? Baker predicted.

1 because of other commitments for the contractor, Koss Construction. â€” Chip and seal of streets in the southeast quadrant of Iola will start the second week of July and take about a month to complete. â€” A new 12-inch water line will be laid from the water plant to town. Several leaks, including a major one that nearly drained Iolaâ€™s storage, occurred last year. â€” The sampling to determine if lawns throughout town are contaminated by heavy metals from the foundries of a century ago should be completed in September. Lawn replacement will start sometime after that. â€” A survey of sidewalks leading to Iola schools also will be done soon, so efforts may be made to attract a Safe Routes to Schools improvements grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation. Realtor John Brocker said 51 Iola homes were listed for sale when â€œI ran the list at 5 a.m. (Friday).â€? He said prices ranged from $18,000 to $550,000, with a median of $84,000. Through the end of May, 14 homes have been sold, compared to 19 for the same time in 2012. Countywide 81 homes are listed for sale.
The wasterwater improvement project is ready to roll. All the City of Iola needs are the supplies to start phase one. The first phase is the replacement of a motor for a lift pump in the main lift station, just northwest of Elm Creek Bridge. In addition to the pump, contractors will be removing the auxiliary pump attached to the main lift house. The main lift station pumps sewage from lines running throughout the city, up into the
lagoons southwest of the pumps. Crossland Heavy Contractors was selected for the $197,000 bid, which includes the cost of the new motor, removal of the auxiliary pump and fitting wider pipes to the lift station. â€œItâ€™s not like chump change,â€? City Administrator Carl Slaugh said. â€œEverything you do these is expensive.â€? Phase two will include updates at the Kentucky, Vine and Ohio streets lift stations.
The wet wells, which contain sewage, need replacement at Kentucky and Vine, and the controls and motor at the Ohio station needs re-working. The total cost for the second phase is approximately $600,000. Bids will be opened June 12. The final phase will be the re-lining of pipes in the city, specifically where areas have deteriorated or need special attention. Slaugh said he hopes to limit cost of the improvements to $1.5 million.
Mapleton shodeo coming up Mapleton will have its ATV Shodeo at 7 p.m. Friday in the Mapleton arena. Registration for the shodeo starts at 6 p.m. The event will include barrel, pole and flag races. There are four different classes so the whole family can join in on the fun. Categories are 6 and under, 7-10, 11-14,

May is National Foster Care Month and the Iola TFI Family Services, Inc. office thanks our foster parents. The Iola office supports 25 foster homes in Allen, Woodson, Anderson, and parts of Coffey Counties that care for children who are unable to remain in their parental home due to abuse or neglect situations. Foster parents work hand in hand with social workers, school districts, mental health centers, doctorâ€™s offices, and community service organizations to provide essential and critical care of the children who are entrusted in their care and supervision. Foster parents have a very important role in the foster care system as they provide care for children 24/7 and are responsible for ensuring the health, safety, and well-being of children in foster care. Our TFI foster parents provide the guidance, stability, and love that is needed for children. TFI Family Services applaud these compassionate families for taking the time to make a difference in the lives of Kansas children and families throughout the year.

Even a ban on cell phones, which the two Iolans observed but some others didnâ€™t, â€œwasnâ€™t so bad,â€? Kunkler said.
He, too, pointed out efforts, some subtle, to get the campers to join together in cooperative efforts. â€œWe had challenges each day, including some friendly competition,â€?

Elderly woman runs in Kan. race WICHITA, Kan. (AP) â€” An 80-year-old southcentral Kansas woman is gearing up to run the annual River Run 10K race in Wichita, which she has run 19 times since the race began in 1984. Rita Sadowksi told The Wichita Eagle she is also hoping to finish the Kansas Health Foundation River Run race today in good time. â€œI'd better be able to do it under an hour and 20,â€? Sadowksi said. â€œIf I don't come in good, it would kill me.â€? Sadowski took first in the 75-and-over female master's division last year with a time of 1:16:45. Once age-grading formulas are mixed in, that equates to 31st place in the women's category. â€œIt's a health thing for me," she said. "When you run, you're healthy.â€? Sadowski said she trains Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, though she has taken this week off in preparation for this weekend's race. Her daughter, Gina Crowley, of Charleston, S.C., and Crowley's nephew from St. Louis are also joining her in the run this year. â€œWe weren't able to come visit for her birthday, so we all decided to come run with her,â€?

Iolan takes pastime to extremes “
Browning’s MMA bout is Friday in Kansas City
To me, this is the ultimate challenge. Only one of two things will happen. You either compete, or you’re going to get beat.
By RICHARD LUKEN
Jacob Browning, Iola, has found a way to mix business with pleasure: mixed martial arts. Browning, 23, will be in Kansas City, Mo., Friday for his second career MMA bout. He is on the slate for Friday’s Ultimate Blue Corner Battles at VooDoo Lounge at Harrah’s Casino. Browning, who won his first career match last August, is unsure of who his opponent will be. Mixed martial arts, for the uninitiated is just what it sounds like. Two combatants utilize a number of techniques to either knock the opponent out or force him into submission. Browning, at 135 pounds, fights in the bantamweight division.
— Jacob Browning, on mixed martial arts fighting
Browning grew up an active athlete at Iola High School — he’s a 2008 graduate — but found his interest in athletics waning as he grew older. Instead, he was more apt to be at a party than a ball field. “I really wasted a lot of time,” he admitted.
Iolan Jacob Browning, 23, will compete in his second career mixed martial arts bout Friday at Harrah’s Casino in Kansas City, Mo. “It’s exciting,” said Browning, who compared mixed martial arts fighters to Roman
gladiators of eons past. “To me, this is the ultimate challenge. Only one of two things
will happen. You either compete, or you’re going to get beat.”
THAT changed shortly after high school, when Browning’s wife, Jayme, found out she was pregnant with the couple’s first child. “That really settled me down more than anything,” he said. “I knew I had to start taking things more seriously. To show some responsibility.” Browning enrolled in an online college, where he earned See BROWNING | Page B3
KC courts Royal legend to address hitting woes By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer
ST. LOUIS (AP) — George Brett is giving coaching a month. The greatest player in Kansas City Royals history isn’t sure teaching is his forte and
doesn’t know if players will listen. Before hustling to the batting cage to start his job and greet well-wishers that included his former manager Whitey Herzog, the team’s high profile interim batting coach
certainly gave a fiery acceptance speech. “I’m scared to death right now, to be honest with you,” Brett said Thursday night. “But I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Not too scared to call out
Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer and the team’s other underachieving youngsters. Brett said he’d do all he could, but added they must be accountable. “I mean, get rid of what’s that baby stuff ? Baby Gerber
or something?” Brett said. “Get rid of the bottles, let’s go. Let’s go!” Brett and Moore plan to meet in a month to assess the situation, and then again two See BRETT | Page B2
Rains add to surreal night By ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer
The Royals and Cardinals should have known something was up when the first pitch was delayed an hour by rain. The game moved quickly after that — right up until the top of the ninth inning, with the Royals leading and the rain back in force. Umpire crew chief Joe West had a decision to make. With the game the last one between the two teams this season, a new rule added this year allowed West to call the game in a decision that would wipe out the top of the ninth and give the Cardinals a 2-1 win, based on the score from the previous completed inning. West chose to wait out the rain. And wait. And wait some more. After 4½ miserable hours, the game resumed

Nadal and Williams victorious By STEVEN WINE AP Sports Writer
PARIS (AP) — Miffed about the scheduling of matches at the French Open, Rafael Nadal took the court at 11 a.m. Friday lacking his usual intensity, and it showed. The seven-time champion had to come from behind for the second match in a row to beat Martin Klizan 4-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-3. Nadal criticized tournament organizers for scheduling his match with Klizan late on Thursday with rain predicted. The forecast proved correct, and the match was postponed a day, while Nadal’s next opponent — Fabio Fagnini — won earlier Thursday and will have a day’s rest before their match today. “That’s not fair,” Nadal said. “Today I was playing almost three hours on court, and my See NADAL | Page B3

Girl with local ties earns 3A state repeat
WICHITA — Bailey Ambrosier, a junior at Norton High School, repeated as Class 3A girls pole vault champion Saturday at the Kansas state track meet. Ambrosier cleared a personal-best 10 feet, 8 inches. Her height was 8 inches higher than her nearest competitor. She won the 2012 state pole vault by clearing 9’6”. “I felt not nervous, I don’t think, because I have been here before,” Ambrosier told the Hays Daily News.
She won even after competing with her Norton teammates in the girls 4x800meter relay just moments before the pole vault competition began. The 4x800 squad, which also featured Bailey’s sister, Casey, took seventh in the state. Ambrosier is the daughter of Wade and Diana (Williamson) Ambrosier of Norton. Her mother is a 1988 Iola High School graduate. Her grandparents are Sid and Alice Williamson, Gas.

weeks after that. “I don’t know if I’m going to be good at this,” Brett said. “If I’m not doing my job, I don’t want Dayton to feel like he has to fire me. “This could be something I just could not stand to do, I don’t know,” he said. “The players and I might not hit it off, I don’t know.” Brett takes over for Jack Maloof and Andre David, who were reassigned to the minor league organization. This will be Brett’s first in-season coaching role, though he’s been the franchise’s vice president of baseball operations since retiring as a player following the 1993 season. He’s also worked as a volunteer coach at spring training for years. “George doesn’t come the second week
in spring training and stay 10 days,” Royals Manager Ned Yost said. “I’ve never seen a Hall of Famer with the work ethic that he has. “George never halfran a ball to first base in his life, George was never the last one out of the dugout in his life. I’m just excited he’s here.” The Royals have asked Brett to do this before and he has declined because his children were young and he wasn’t ready to be away from them for the 162-game grind. With kids in college, Brett said, “I’m not missing them growing up anymore.” Brett’s no fan of video. He prefers players learn on the job and repair their swing during the atbat, and he wants them to just be themselves. “I’m sick and tired of watching guys try to hit three-run home runs

Don’t try to be a hero, just be a soldier.” The familiar No. 5 was retired in 1993 after a career that spanned two decades and ended with Brett as the Royals’ hit leader with 3,154. He remains the only player in major league history to win batting titles in three different decades, including a memorable 1980 season in which he hit .390. The Royals also said Pedro Grifol will serve as a special assignment coach, and Grifol also was in uniform Thursday. He is in his first year with the Royals, where he’s been working as the hitting coach for the club’s team in Surprise, Ariz. He spent the past 13 seasons with the Mariners organization.

with the victory. “I credit Joe West for hanging in there. I credit their grounds crew for getting the field playable.” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and general manager John Mozeliak lobbied during the delay for an eight-inning St. Louis win. Matheny said the field was “bad.” “And I thought our grounds crew did a tremendous job,” Matheny added. “This comes down to one of my guys getting hurt, it’s a big deal.” West said the Cardinals did not express their frustrations to him directly, made no statement and did not lodge a protest.

an associates degree in occupational studies, with his emphasis on becoming a personal trainer. He and Jayme returned to Iola in December from Kansas City, just prior to the birth of the couple’s second child. “We wanted to be closer to family,” he said. In addition to MMA training, Browning oversees training on a regular basis with a group at Iola’s Fellowship Regional Church, as well as individually with clients at Cedarbrook Fitness Center, where he also trains extensively. His company, Adrenaline Performance & Fitness, is geared to prospective athletes of all types. For more information, check out his company’s Facebook page. “It’s primarily for people who want to drop some weight, or who have a physical issue of some kind because of an illness or accident,” he said. Surprisingly, his clientele is almost primarily women. “It’s really hard to get the guys off the counch,” he said with a laugh. His dreams are twofold. First, Browning hopes to eventually open a gym of his own to work with his clients. “It’d be something else for kids to do,” he said. “And selfishly, I grew up wanting to be a professional athlete. I figured MMA was the best route for me to take.”
now on fighting technique as the bout nears. He hopes his second match is as successful as his first, when he defeated James Baker in Kansas City, last August. The match ended about 2 1/2 minutes into the first round when Browning used an “armbar” maneuver to make Baker immobile. Browning had little time for nerves. His father, Tom Browning, died in the days prior to the bout. “That just made me more focused,” he said. “My parents were very supportive because I had set my mind on a goal and was working toward it. I told them I was going back to school, and I did it. Now I’m working toward this.” Regardless of who he faces on Friday, Browning is “confident, but not over-confident,” he said. “I’ve had enough time to train properly. I’m either going to show up ready to go, or I’m going to get
Jacob Browning goes through a training drill in advance of his mixed martial arts bout. Browning will fight at 8 p.m. Friday at the VooDoo Lounge at Harrah’s Casino in Kansas City, Mo. “I’m just not big on team sports,” Browning said. “Here, you have to rely upon yourself. There’s nobody else to pick up the slack for you.” As the name suggests, Browning utilizes a combination of fighting techniques from jiu jitsu, boxing and muay thai, a specialized form of striking and kicking
developed in Thailand. IN ADDITION TO the mental training is the physical effort to gear up for a bout. “I was fortunate because a lot of the guys I trained with in Kansas City have gone onto UFC,” he said. Ultimate Fighting Challenge — UFC — is a type of MMA competition.

When Klizan’s final shot sailed out, Nadal gave the cheering crowd a relieved thumbs-up and managed a weak smile. The Spaniard blamed his patchy play on a lack of practice time because of rain. “That makes the things not easy,” Nadal said. “So I started the match probably with not the right intensity, with more doubts than usual. The positive thing was that I had a good reaction at the beginning of

Wiggins out at Tour de France PARIS (AP) — Bradley Wiggins will not defend his Tour de France title because of a knee problem, giving teammate Chris Froome the chance to win cycling’s premier race after finishing runner-up last year. Wiggins became the first British rider to win the Tour, but he has not been able to prepare properly leading to the June 29 start. He withdrew before the 13th stage of the Giro d’Italia two weeks ago because of a chest infection. His Team Sky said Friday he also has an “ongoing knee condition” and would not be considered for the squad. “It’s a huge disappointment not to make the Tour. I desperately wanted be there, for the team and for all the fans along the way — but it’s not going to happen,” Wiggins said. “I can’t train the way I need to train and I’m not going to be ready. Once you accept that, it’s almost a relief not having to worry about the injury and the race against time.”
the second set. Even if I didn’t play fantastic, I played the way that I had to play, with intensity, you know, with passion.” Nadal also lost the first set of his opening match against Daniel Brands and was down 3-0 in the second-set tiebreaker before he rallied. Last year lost one set in the entire tournament en route to a record seventh Roland Garros title. Federer, seeded No. 2, was broken in the opening game but held the rest of the way and eased into the fourth round by beating No. 30 Julien Benneteau of France, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5. Federer hit 31 winners with 21 unforced errors to eliminate Benneteau, who had won when they played at Rotterdam in February. “I’m able to play quite aggressive at the moment,” Federer said. “I don’t know if I can keep that up. But the important thing is to keep the errors somewhat low because otherwise it’s just silly aggressiveness. It has to be controlled aggression.” Federer seeks a record 18th Grand Slam title, and his first since Wimbledon last year. No. 12 Tommy Haas became the first 35-yearold since 2007 to reach the French Open’s third round, beating 20-yearold American qualifier Jack Sock 7-6 (3), 6-2, 7-5. Haas next plays No. 19 John Isner, who overcame a two-set deficit for the first time to win an all-American match against Ryan Harrison, 5-7, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 6-1, 8-6. Isner is the last U.S. man in the field, because No. 18 Sam Querrey let a lead slip away in a 2-6, 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2 loss to No. 15 Gilles Simon of France in the third round. Simon faces Federer next.

Budget still a puzzle to KS lawmakers
John Hanna An AP news analysis
for the year. House and Senate negotiators briefly resumed talks in how to respond to the massive individual income tax cuts enacted last year meant to stimulate Kansas’ economy. But House Republicans went into the meeting with no new proposal following Thursday’s overwhelming rejection of a plan to decrease the sales tax on groceries. “We’re still back at
looking at what we can do to actually make a plan that can pass the House,” said Rep. Richard Carlson, a St. Marys Republican, and the House’s lead negotiator on tax issues. “We don’t have it yet, because we had to regroup from last night quite a bit, quite frankly.” Republican Gov. Sam Brownback proposed keeping the sales tax at 6.3 percent to prevent budget shortfalls — and to allow for additional income tax reductions. The sales tax is scheduled to drop to 5.7 percent in July because of a 2010 pre-Brownback tenure law that temporarily boosted the rate to balance the budget. GOP leaders have been unable to agree on the sales tax: Senators embraced Brownback’s proposal, while the House passed a plan earlier this year to allow the sales tax to drop to 5.7 percent and institute less aggressive income tax cuts than the
governor sought. The latest failed plan would have cut the sales tax on groceries to 4.9 percent; all other items still would have been taxes at 6.3 percent.
Democrats oppose efforts to shift most of the burden of financing state government to the sales tax, viewing it as unfair to poor families that tend to pay a higher percentage of their incomes to the tax than do wealthy ones. Still floating around the Statehouse is the proposed $14.5 billion budget for each of the next two fiscal years, starting in July. A separate team of budget negotiators agreed two weeks ago, but reopened talks Thursday to lessen cuts in funding for community colleges and technical colleges. The Legislature’s annual session reached its 98th day Friday. The state constitution specifies 90-day sessions,

the burden of financing state government to the sales tax, viewing it as unfair to poor families that tend to pay a higher percentage of their incomes to the tax than do wealthy ones. Their unwillingness to vote for any plan so far has complicated efforts in the House. “This needs to be fixed next session, when the people get to weigh in on it,” said Sen. Tom Holland, a Baldwin City Democrat, referencing next year’s elections. Brownback and most Republicans believe the state will boost its economy if it phases out personal income taxes. But some GOP House members view any adjustment to the sales tax as a tax increase. Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan sought to lessen House Republicans’ resistance by reminding them during a meeting that last year’s cuts still would dwarf any net revenue gain over the next five years. “Don’t fall into the opponents’ talking points that this is a tax increase,” he said. And Brownback told reporters that he wants to avoid “a skewed view” of tax issues. “It does matter, what window frame you look at,” he said. “We have made substantial tax cuts in the state of Kansas, I think, by anybody’s standards.”

Bob Fletcher listens to Marielle Tsukamoto reminisce about her internment during WWII, at his home in Sacramento, in this Feb. 11, 2010, file photograph. Fletcher, a Sacramento farmer who saved the farms of interned Japanese-American families during World War II, died May 23. He was 101.
Man saved farms for the interned during WWII By ROBERT D. DAVILA The Sacramento Bee
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Bob Fletcher, a Sacramento farmer who saved the farms of interned Japanese-American families during World War II, died May 23. He was 101. In 1942, a few months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the U.S. government forced Japanese immigrants and Americans of Japanese descent to report to barbed-wire camps. Many lost their homes to thieves or bank foreclosures. A state agricultural inspector, Fletcher acted instinctively to help Japanese-American farmers. He quit his job and went to work saving farms belonging to the Nitta, Okamoto and Tsukamoto families in the Florin community of Sacramento. In the face of deep anti-Japanese sentiment — including a bullet fired into the Tsukamoto barn — Fletcher worked 90 acres of flame Tokay grapes. He paid the mortgages and taxes and took half the profits. He turned over the rest — along with the farms — to the three families when they returned to Sacramento in 1945. “I did know a few of them pretty well and never agreed with the evacuation,” he told The Sacramento Bee in 2010. “They were the same as

anybody else. It was obvious they had nothing to do with Pearl Harbor.” Fletcher’s heroism was widely celebrated in the community, including a centennial birthday party for him in 2011 that drew more than 150 people. His inspirational story is recounted in history books, including “We The People: A Story of Internment in America” by Elizabeth Pinkerton and Mary Tsukamoto, whose farm he saved. “Few people in history exemplify the best ideals the way that Bob did,” said Tsukamoto’s daughter, Marielle, who was 5 when her family was interned. “He was honest and hardworking and had integrity. Whenever you asked him about it, he just said, ‘It was the right thing to do.’”
Bob Fletcher epitomized service before self. He was a true public servant. — Rick Martinez, former fire chief
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Top Republicans in the Kansas House worked on a new tax plan Friday, seeking a magical mix of personal income tax cuts and new sales tax revenues that would let lawmakers wrap up business
Fletcher, who settled in Sacramento as a farmer after the war, also served people in other ways. He spent 20 years as a volunteer firefighter with the Florin Fire Department and retired in 1974 after another 12 years as paid chief. He helped start the Florin Water District in 1959 and was a board member for 50 years. He was an active member of the Florin Historical Society and civic groups in Florin and Elk Grove. He donated 5 acres for a Florin history center that later was renamed the Fletcher Farm Community Center. “Bob Fletcher epitomized service before self,” said Rick Martinez, a former Florin and Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District chief. “He was a true public servant.” The only child of walnut farmers in Contra Costa County, Calif., Robert Emmett Fletcher Jr. was born on July 26, 1911, and raised in Brentwood in the San Francisco Bay Area. He earned an agriculture degree from the University of California, Davis, in 1933, managed a peach ranch and worked as a state and Sacramento County agriculture inspector during the Great Depression. He had a son, Robert III, and was married for almost 68 years to his wife, Teresa.

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

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers
A couple of questions we just had to ask â€” ourselves
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. caused girlfriend Danica Patrick to wreck Sunday night â€” guess who picks the movie this week?
Will Danica and Ricky survive the Charlotte bump-and-grind?
GODSPEAK: Even true love has its limits. KENâ€™S CALL: How strange that the â€œthird party,â€? Brad Keselowski, was playing the â€œItâ€™s not you/Itâ€™s meâ€? card?
Is it safe to sit anywhere at a race track these days?
GODSPEAK: Iâ€™m thinking the next big thing at race tracks will be underground bunker seats. KENâ€™S CALL: Whatâ€™s the world coming to when the infield is the safest place at the track? Either that or a suite. For most, Iâ€™m guessing infield.
HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ
Wood Brothers Racing celebrates 1,400th start Wood Brothers Racing reached another racing milestone by making its 1,400th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series start in Sundayâ€™s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In the connect-the-dots category, team founder Glen Wood made the race teamâ€™s first series start in a 1953 Lincoln at Martinsville Speedway on May 17, 1953. The Cup S eries started in 1949. Fast forward to May 26, 2013 and the No. 21 Ford was back on the track with young Trevor Bayne at the wheel. The team is now co-owned by Glen Woodâ€™s sons, Eddie and Len, who get all sorts of technical help from Roush Fenway Racing and the engineers at Ford Racing. Way back when, Glen drove the car and his brother Leonard was the crew chief and that was pretty much the race team. Glen and Leonard are in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. â€œTo have that many starts is pretty amazing,â€? Eddie Wood said. â€œIâ€™m proud to still be here.â€? Eddie and Len grew up as garage rats and when the time was right, took the business over from their father, who still shows up at the track here and there. Glen was present to watch the No. 21 win the 2011 Daytona 500 with Bayne at the wheel. â€œWhen I was a kid, daddy would leave and late Sunday night he would come back and I was always asking, â€˜Whatâ€™s he doing?â€™â€? Eddie said. â€œAnd then before long we started working in the shop and traveling and getting into that same routine and it just became part of our lives and it still is to this day.â€? Asked about the secret to the teamâ€™s longevity, Eddie Wood was hard-pressed to find an answer. â€œI really donâ€™t know,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s just
worked out that way and I guess itâ€™s because thatâ€™s what you want to do, and thatâ€™s really what you have to do. You donâ€™t really have a choice. Iâ€™m too old to change routes in life so far as doing something different because I donâ€™t really know a lot about anything other than racing.â€?
Ringing phones for Busch
Kurt Busch indicated his racing comeback strategy is working. If you recall, Busch was dismissed by car owner Roger Penske after cursing at an ESPN reporter after his car made an early exit from the 2011 season finale at Homestead. He drove most of the 2012 season for James Finch and moved up a notch in 2013 at Furniture Row Racing, which poured more money into its one-car operation to be more competitive. Busch has three Top-10 finishes this season. â€œItâ€™s been a great year,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s been a year of opportunities. And when you have the phone ringing like it is, and youâ€™re on a one-year deal, youâ€™re exploring all types of options.â€?
Trevor Bayne may have the most unusual sponsor in NASCAR right now. His Nationwide team signed a multi-race deal with a company that makes Pillow Pets. Is it a pillow? Is it a pet? Itâ€™s Pillow Pet, product geared to children 12 and under. â€œI know the kids love it and itâ€™s neat for me because we have a lot of young fans in NASCAR and sometimes itâ€™s hard for them to connect to what the sponsor is,â€? Bayne said.
Getty Images for NASCAR/RAINIER EHRHARDT
When you hear â€œBusch had another good raceâ€? you may start thinking itâ€™s about Kurt again.
When did the bleachers become more dangerous than the cockpits?
Itâ€™s been a strange evolution, and this season has produced an unwanted milestone. The season started with parts of a car crashing through the fence at Daytona, and now we see an overhead Fox TV cable break at Charlotte â€” several fans were injured, none seriously. Trouble from the track, trouble from overhead. Donâ€™t leave your rear flank unguarded, and keep an eye pointed down below, just in case.
Kurt Busch, a hot commodity?
To hear him tell it, yes. But you never really know. As Kurt suggests in Hot Topics (next door on this page), his overachievements this season â€” including another near-miss at Charlotte â€” will pay off with another chance in a top-tier team. He indicates that his phone has been ringing and the opportunity is inevitable. Word of reality here: Drivers have been saying such things since the days when Barney Oldfield would run back from the telegraph station and proclaim, â€œGot another offer!â€? But then again, few drivers have had Kurtâ€™s potential (both kinds of potential), so this one will be more interesting than most.
Next in the Hall of Fame?
Your guess is as good as anyoneâ€™s. We told you, if they insist on putting in five each year, it wouldnâ€™t be long before it became the â€œHall of Good.â€? Letâ€™s say it again: There should be a separate showcase room for the true greats. Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR for The Daytona Beach News-Journal for 27 years. Reach him at email@example.com
