Local churches reach out Mission work targets LaHarpe streets By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

LaHARPE — Clean-up work scheduled in LaHarpe Saturday was cut a little short by heavy rain that afternoon. But, “we were about ready to quit by the time it started to rain. We were all getting tired,” said Debbie Bearden with a smile. The weekend project culminated a week-long effort by members of Ridgewood Bap-

tist Church, Forest City, Ark., to minister to youths and adults alike and be the lead group in cleaning up yards, doing minor repairs and painting homes on Saturday. LaHarpe wasn’t a new destination for the Arkansas church’s mission team of 11. “They were here last year to do Vacation Bible School,” at LaHarpe Baptist Mission, Bearden said. This year’s effort was hands-on in introducing kids to Christian principles and fortifying their faith. “There are a lot of references to archery in the Bible,” Bearden noted, which prompted three-hour sessions on Tuesday through Thursday afternoon titled “Center Shot.” About 30 kids learned to

shoot a bow. “The Bible says such things as ‘Sinning is missing the mark,’ just like an arrow can miss the mark on a target,” Bearden said. After the kids’ program, the Ridgewood Mission team and members of LaHarpe Baptist Mission spent Friday prepping for what was to be done on Saturday, based on Acts 1:8, which says: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” By the time work crews were dispatched Saturday, more than 100 people were on hand to help.

State funding affecting ACC

Scholarship program hit by cuts

IMS hosts summer camp

Due to changes in the way the state distributes funds, Allen Community College's scholarship program is losing traction as an incentive for growth. Prior to 2008, the state of Kansas released funds to ACC based on the amount of credit-hours per year a college enrolled. The more students that signed up for classes, the more funds the college received from the state, President John Masterson said. When the recession hit across the nation in 2008, the state moved to what Masterson refers to as a “block grant” for funding — a predetermined amount that varies from college to college based on what each college received the year prior. “The state has put us in a position where growth is not profitable,” Masterson said, specifically referring to the college's scholarship program. What once brought in more students, meaning more revenue for the college, is now taking up $256,000 per year of ACC's general fund for students from Allen County. They distributed a

total of $1.4 million in scholarships last year. While he said the college is in “good, stable financial condition,” the amount of state money the college is receiving is not increasing, while costs are. The community college has seen dwindling sup- John Masterson port from the state every year. “I want to stay ahead of that,” Masterson said.

In addition to inflation, the contribution from the state will drop 1.5 percent in the next academic year, by $73,102. Masterson said there are “two avenues” of funding for the scholarship program: students and taxpayers. The board recently approved a $4 per credit-hour increase in tuition. “It hurts my heart to do that,” Masterson said. “But we are still at the low end See COLLEGE | Page A6

VBS climbs for mission project goal By KAYLA BANZET kayla@iolaregister.com

As the Grace Lutheran Church’s Vacation Bible School ended its first day Monday, shouts filled the sanctuary. “Go tell it on the mountain,” Kim Kristalyn, VBS director, said. Kids replied back with shouts, “That Jesus Christ is

Lord!” Grace Lutheran started its VBS this week with 48 kids registered. The program runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This is the fifth year the church has had VBS in its new building. Kristalyn said the Bible school does not require a registration fee. Instead, they collect an optional offering throughout the week to See MISSION | Page A6

A much-needed makeover

A mainstay of the playground in Riverside Park is getting a makeover. The metal elephant slide, which has been around since the 1950s, is being reworked by the Community Involvement Task Force. It was taken to Williams Monuments for sand blasting, then to Utley’s Body Shop to beat out the bumps and level out the surface. Iola city crews then painted it with a gray undercoat and sealed it. Donna Houser, a representative from CITF, said the group hopes to have the slide completed in the next few weeks.

Starbucks to post calories By CANDICE CHOI AP Food Industry Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Starbucks has a new way to wake up its customers: showing the calories in its drinks. The Seattle-based coffee chain says it will start posting calorie counts on menu boards nationwide next week, ahead of a federal regulation that would require it to do so. Calorie counts on menus are already required in some parts of the country, including New York City. But starting June 25, Starbucks Corp. says customers at its more than 10,000 U.S.

locations will be able to see that there are 300 calories in a small caramel Frappuccino and 230 calories in a small Iced Caffe Mocha. Pastry cases will also show calorie information, in case customers want to save some calories and opt for a Morning Bun (350 calories) instead of a blueberry scone (460 calories). The move by Starbucks comes as the Food and Drug Administration irons out the details of a regulation that would require companies with more than 20 locations 75 Cents

to post calorie information on their menus. Other chains including McDonald’s Corp. have also moved ahead with posting the information, saying they’re providing it to be more transparent rather than because they’re being forced to. In its announcement, Starbucks highlighted the various steps it has taken over the years to give customers choices, such as adding sugar-free syrup in 1997 and making 2 percent milk the standard for core beverages See CALORIES | Page A6

Horseshoe tourney set for Riverside The “clang” of ringers in the horseshoe pits will be a familiar sound in Riverside Park Saturday. Iola’s Sonic Drive-In is sponsor for the Sonic Drive-In/Clyde Gerdsen Open, starting at 9 a.m. for those pitchers who average fewer than 30 percent ringers. For those more advanced, averaging over 30 percent, starting time is 1 p.m. Lawrence Riebel, Iola Riverside Horseshoe Club member, said the event is one of the high-

est pay-out tournaments in the state. Entry fees are $10 for those already registered with the Kansas Horseshoe Pitching Association (KHPA). For those not registered with KHPA, it is $25 to sign up for the organization and the tournament. Both may be done before Saturday’s event. Money raised from the proceeds will go to awards for the top in each class. Riebel said Sonic has sponsored the tournament for the past eight years.

Sorority takes tour Eta members of Alpha Delta Kappa Teachers Honorary Sorority met at 8 a.m. Friday to carpool to the Franklin County Quilt Block SelfGuided Tour. The tour, which was started in 2010, consists of viewing approximately 30 different designed quilt blocks. The blocks feature different barns from throughout the county painted on them. The history of the family

and farm is incorporated into each block’s design. Susan Jones, an Eta member who retired from teaching this year, was recognized for her years of teaching and honored with a retirement gift. Seven members enjoyed the outing: Linda Johnson, Linda Brocker, Phyllis Luedke, Saundra Upshaw, Susan Jones, Irene Smith and Kathryn Sarver.

Kobach looking into protest group KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Monday he has asked state officials to investigate an immigration reform rally that was held outside his Wyandotte County home. Kobach and his family were not at his Piper home during the protest held Saturday by advocates of a federal overhaul of immigration laws that includes a path to citizenship for millions of people who are in the U.S. illegally. Kobach, a former law professor, has built a national profile by advocating policies that crack down on illegal immigration and for helping to write tough laws in Arizona and Alabama. Kobach told The Associated Press on Monday

he asked the Kansas attorney general’s office and the Wyandotte County district attorney to investigate the rally at his home, and described the crowd of protesters as threatening. The crowd has been estimated between 200 to 300 people. Kansas City, Kan., police spokesman Tom Tomasic said the department is investigating the protest to determine if any laws or city ordinances were violated. Sunflower Community Action, a Kansas-based nonprofit group that advocates for immigration reform, organized the gathering and said in a release that the protest was intended “to remind him that Kansans believe in keeping families together.”

By BRADLEY BROOKS Associated Press

SAO PAULO (AP) — Some of the biggest demonstrations since the end of Brazil’s 196485 dictatorship have broken out across this continent-sized country, uniting tens of thousands frustrated by poor transportation, health services, education and security despite a heavy tax burden. More than 100,000 people were in the streets Monday for largely peaceful protests in at least eight big cities. However, demonstrations in Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte were marred by vandalism and violent clashes with police. About two dozen people were reported injured. The wave of protests, which began over a hike in bus prices, was also in large part motivated by widespread images of Sao Paulo police last week beating demonstrators and firing rubber bullets during a march that drew 5,000. In Rio, the violent police crackdown on a small and peaceful crowd Sunday near the Maracana stadium incited many to come out for what local news media described as the city’s largest protest in a generation. Tuesday’s newspapers and morning news shows were filled with images of clashes between demonstrators and police in Rio, Porto

We’re massacred by the government’s taxes, yet when we leave home in the morning to go to work, we don’t know if we’ll make it home because of the violence. — Maria Claudia Cardoso, Brazilian protestor

Confederations Cup and just one month before a papal visit, a year before the World Cup and three years ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The unrest is raising security concerns and renewed questions over Brazil’s readiness to host the mega-events. A cyber-attack knocked the government’s official World Cup site offline, and the Twitter feed for Brazil’s Anonymous group posted links to a host of other government websites whose content had been replaced by a screen calling on citizens to come out to the streets. In a brief statement late Monday, President Dilma Rousseff acknowledged the demonstrations, saying: “Peaceful demonstrations are legitimate and part of democracy. It is natural for young people to demonstrate.” Rousseff recently saw her popularity rating recently dip for the first time in her presidency, largely over sluggish growth, increasing inflation and security

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — American officials say U.S. representatives will begin formal meetings with the Taliban in a few days at the group’s new office opening in Qatar. Senior Obama administration officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record, described the Taliban’s move to open a political office Tuesday in Doha as a stepping stone to full Taliban renouncement of al-Qaida. In Doha, a Qatari official confirmed that the Taliban office was open. The administration officials say the U.S. and

improvements are made elsewhere. In Rio, the confrontation between police and a small group of protesters dragged on late into the night despite sporadic rain. As the group moved on the state legislature building, footage broadcast by the Globo television network showed police firing into the air. At least one demonstrator in Rio was injured after being hit in the leg with a live round allegedly fired by a law enforcement official. Local news media reported that a high school student in Maceio was shot in the face after a motorist forced his way through the demonstrators’ barricade. Protesters were raining fists down on the car when a shot was fired. The extent of the 16-year-old’s injuries were not immediately known. In Sao Paulo, Brazil’s economic hub, at least 65,000 protesters gathered Monday at a small, treeless plaza then broke into three directions in a Carnival atmosphere,

Taliban representatives will hold bilateral meetings, then it is expected that Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s High Peace Council will follow up with its own talks a few days later. The Taliban’s spokesman says the group will open the office to try to find a political solution to the war in Afghanistan. The spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the group opposes the use of Afghan soil to threaten other countries and supports the negotiating process. Those two statements have been a key demand of both the U.S. and Afghan governments before talks can begin.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Court restores freedom at the ballot box necessary documentation to satisfy their more stringent registration processes. An estimated 21 million Americans lack proper identification now required in states with new election laws. Less than one-third of Americans own a passport, and citizens who don’t have access to their birth certificate are forced to pay for one in order to vote — an almost certain violation of the 24th Amendment’s ban on poll taxes. MONDAY’S ruling is a replay of the 1965 Voting Rights Act that stopped states from usurping the voting rights of primarily African Americans, with a string of “requirements” such as literacy tests, owning property and a poll tax. It’s the same song today, but aimed primarily toward Hispanics. Voter fraud is overhyped. Concerns that impersonators use the names of the deceased to vote rarely prove true. Between 2002 and 2005, President George W. Bush ordered the Justice Department to make voter fraud a top priority. Out of the hundreds of millions of votes cast during that period, the department brought only 38 cases, of which only one involved impersonation fraud. Still, states waste precious time and energy focusing on a non-existent problem, and, like Kansas, pass unconstitutional practices making it harder for honest citizens to vote. In Kansas, fewer than 10 cases of voter fraud have been reported in the last five years, yet it remains the stump speech of Kris Kobach, our secretary of state. THE JUSTICES kept a good law on the books. Uniformity in voting laws is critical to keeping U.S. voters coming to the polls. Which is the goal, right? — Susan Lynn

Standards debate exposes tensions Common Core another issue of contention between state board, legislators

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An intense debate in Kansas over adopting multistate academic standards for public schools has exposed longstanding tensions between the Legislature and the State Board of Education over control of what happens in classrooms. Small-government, tea party-aligned Republican legislators want to block the use in Kansas of Common Core standards for math and reading, an initiative of governors’ and education commissioners’ associations. The state board adopted the standards as Kansas’ own in 2010.

John Hanna An AP news analysis

Critics of the Common Core guidelines also opposed science standards drafted by Kansas, 25 other states and the National Research Council. The board adopted them last week. The elected state board, dominated by a coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats, contends that adopting multistate standards will improve teaching and better prepare students for a global economy. Republican legislative critics believe putting such standards into effect will be costly and worry that Kansas is ceding some of its control over its schools. But this year’s tensions also have deeper roots in the Kansas Constitution. It gives the state board authority to set education policy independent of the Legislature but still leaves the power of the purse with lawmakers, making at least occasional clashes likely, if not inevitable. “It’s a tension that has existed for some time,” said Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, a teacher whose 37 years in the Legislature make him its longest-serving member ever. OPPOSITION to multistate standards fueled unsuccessful attempts during this year’s legislative session to block spending on their implementation and, in the final hours, to set up a special legislative oversight committee. The debate flared again during last week’s state board meeting with three hours of public

school districts do ongoing teacher training and regularly replace books and other materials. They contend interest in multistate standards is driven by states themselves and business leaders concerned about U.S. economic competitiveness. But some current arguments are part of older threads. In raising concerns about the potential costs of following multistate standards, GOP legislators are echoing regular criticism of the board over the past 25 years for proposing large increases in state funding on public schools. Meanwhile, board members continue to describe themselves as the greater experts on education as a result of their focus and year-round meetings. “They don’t seem to understand the work we put into ev-

In a decision Monday afternoon, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 7-2 there’s no need for voters to produce evidence of their citizenship when registering to vote. The standard federal registration form is good enough, the justices said, overruling a 2004 Arizona law that went out of its way to put the burden of proof on voters. Other states, including Kansas, have followed Arizona’s tack. The ruling is a precursor of lawsuits by civil rights groups to follow. The justices based their reasoning on an American precept: One should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. If election officials have reason to believe an individual lied in checking the box affirming his citizenship — an offense of perjury — then they have recourse and an obligation to obtain evidence to that effect. Punishment could include a five-year prison sentence and a $10,000 fine. The case specifically addressed Arizona, but will be applied in Kansas, too, and other states similarly fraught with paranoia that illegal citizens are taking over the ballot box — which, they are not. A result of the Arizona law was a lower turnout of legal, but minority, voters — which, if truth be told, was the true of goal of the anti-immigrant measure. President Obama was elected in both the 2008 and 2012 elections on the backs of minorities. In Arizona, the 2004 law resulted in the rejected registrations of 31,500 people. Most said they were born in the United States, but lacked identification. Upon review, a high percentage of the rejections were made in error. Laws like Arizona’s discriminate against the elderly, the poor, and the disenfranchised who don’t have ready access to the

bate over academic standards shows. A few legislators have described the board as an awkward “fourth branch” of state government. Lawmakers put constitutional amendments on the ballot in 1974, 1986 and 1990 to strip the board of its independent power, but voters rejected each proposition. Cauble said conflicts between the board and legislators ultimately must be resolved by the same voters who’ve put her fellow GOP moderates and Democrats in charge of the board but elected the conservative Republican legislators who’ve criticized the board’s work. “It’s not good for the kids of Kansas if we adults get into a power struggle,” she said. ___ Political Writer John Hanna has covered Kansas politics and government since 1987.

Myths, and realities, of the dreaded chigger How to speak They tend to cause more sheer misery than any other “insect of summer.� Despite being well-known, however, chiggers aren’t that wellunderstood, according to Ludek Zurek, Kansas State University Research and Extension entomologist. And, people’s mistaken notions can make chigger-related problems worse, as well as overly worrisome. To help counter some of the more popular myths, he offered this quiz: 1. Summer’s big three — mosquitoes, ticks and chiggers — can transmit diseases as they suck blood. “That’s true of the first two; however, chiggers have no interest in blood,� Zurek said. “And, they’ve never vectored a human disease in North America. “Chiggers simply use their piercing mouthparts to inject their host with a kind of spit. Their digestive juices are able to turn skin cells’ content into chigger food. In humans, the digestive enzymes also produce an allergic reaction — an itchy, red bump or welt. In humans the danger usually is that chigger bites can get infected secondarily by bacteria or fungi if you give into temptation and scratch.� 2. Chiggers can embed themselves in your skin. But, applying clear nail polish (or washing with bleach or alcohol or turpentine) can suffocate them. “No and most definitely no,� the entomologist said. “Chiggers can’t burrow. If left undisturbed, they’ll keep eating for several days. Even when attached, however, they’re easy to brush off — especially when taking a warm, soapy shower.�

When such efforts are too late, he added, the best treatment for bites is to apply a combination sealant-antihistamine. For example, Caladryl is one such product because it contains calamine lotion to control

Carla Nemecek Extension Agent for Agricul-

itching and benadryl to serve as a histamine blocker. “If you need first aid until you can get to a drugstore, even sunscreens with benzocaine can help,� Zurek said. “Petroleum jelly or baby oil can temporarily ease itching, too, by acting as a sealant.� 3. One chigger can bite you several times, creating a line of itchy bumps. At this stage, chiggers are a one-use hypodermic, so if they’re dislodged, they’ll quickly die. The main reason people get multiple bites is that the distribution of chiggers tends to be spotty, even in prime habitat in damp, shady areas with tall grass and weeds. 4. In chigger territory, wear long pants, tucked into socks, and a longsleeved, buttoned-up shirt. “That will slow the chiggers down, at least,� Zurek said. “You’ll do better, though, if you’re wearing boots, your clothing is loose-fitting but tightly woven, and you have treated the clothing — as well as any exposed skin — with a good repellent. That kind of preparation is particularly important as far up your body as the height of the vegetation you’ll be walking

through.� Repellents containing diethyl-meta-toluamide or DEET (for skin and/ or clothing) or permethrin (clothing only) remain the most effective, he said, but only if users carefully read and follow the container’s directions. 5. To protect backyard guests and/or children playing outdoors, you need to spray your lawn. Nowadays, researchers don’t recommend applying a chigger control unless the pests are a chronic or severe problem or they’re concentrated in “hot spots.� Products that kill chiggers can kill bug-eating spiders, too. Besides, when used alone, chemical chigger controls aren’t a long-term solution. 6. Chiggers are microscopic insects that make your skin crawl. “The first problem with that statement is that chiggers aren’t insects,� the entomologist said. “They’re mites, which means they’re related to spiders, ticks and scorpions — the whole big group called arachnids. The chigger larvae that feed on people’s skin do have six legs, as insects do. But, the adult mites, who have no interest in people, have the typical eight legs of an arachnid. “You’re not likely to see all the ways in which they differ from insects, though. You need luck and really good eyesight to see a chigger larva scurrying across your skin like a tiny red dot... or, hanging onto a bite like a dark little speck. People typically don’t feel chiggers, even when the mites insert their mouthparts. A human’s first clue that chiggers are around usually comes several hours

later, when the bites finally start to itch.� 7. Chigger bites and mosquito bites are impossible to tell apart. “That’s true only if you don’t know what to look for,� Zurek said, adding this potential clue. “A chigger bite always itches for several days — the minimum time the host’s body requires to repair its skin tissue damage and to neutralize or dissolve what the chigger left behind. During that time, liquefied skin cells will still ooze out every time the bite gets scratched. When exposed to air, however, this oozy fluid will soon solidify into a hard ‘cap’ — a distinct feature of chigger-caused feeding wounds.� 8. Mosquitoes mostly bite exposed skin. Chiggers bite where you’d least like to have a painful itch. Chiggers often roam, looking for a pore, hair follicle or other eating spot where the host’s skin is fairly thin. They prefer hot, sweaty places, but are perfectly willing to stop if their search takes them up to a barrier, the entomologist said. That’s why chigger bites commonly show up on the back of knees, in crotch and armpits, at shoe and sock tops, inside tightfitting underwear, and under a waistband or belt. 9. People can be infested with and spread roaming chiggers. This myth actually has some basis in truth, Zurek said. Chiggers can’t establish infestations indoors. But, people can bring roaming chiggers inside on clothing and forget to put that clothing immediately into the washer with soap and hot water.

Grocery stores aren’t immune to germs Are you filling your shopping cart with germs as well as groceries? You probably are, but you don’t have to. Here are some ways that you can protect yourself and your family from the germs that may lurk in your grocery store. The handle of your shopping cart can contain more bacteria, and even fecal matter, than an average public restroom. Plus, touching the handle after someone who might be carrying an infection is an easy way to transfer germs. What to do? Most grocery stores offer sanitary wipes so you may wipe down the shopping cart handle. If your store doesn’t, bring your own. Or, at least, be sure to

wash your hands after touching a cart. That rotating checkout line conveyor belt can be a source of both dirt and germs. What to do? To pro-

bag. Researchers from Arizona and California tested 84 reusable bags and found high levels of bacteria in all of them. What to do? If you’re being eco-friendly by avoiding disposable bags and using cloth ones, be sure to wash them (by hand or in a washing machine) between uses. This will prevent your reusable bags from becoming a breeding ground for food-borne bacteria. By laundering your reusable bags, you will kill 99.9 percent of the bacteria on them. Be both green and clean. Many grocery stores use misters to spray their fresh produce on display so that it doesn’t dry out. However, the water in the misters — and the moist environment they create — can become a breeding ground for germs. This is one more reason to protect your family from illness

by keeping your produce as safe as possible. What to do? Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables under cool running water before eating them. Rub those with a firm skin or a hard rind briskly with your hands or a produce brush to remove dirt and surface microorganisms. Before serving fresh leafy vegetables that have not been pre-washed and bagged, separate and individually rinse the leaves. Discard the outermost ones, such as on a head of lettuce or cabbage. Leaves can be difficult to clean, so put them in a clean bowl and soak them in cool water for a few minutes to loosen sand and dirt. A clean bowl is better than the sink, which can be full of bacteria. After rinsing, blot the leaves dry with paper towels or use a salad spinner to remove excess moisture.

with kids about natural disasters By JENNIFER WESTERMAN NCHD Child Care Licensing/Family Educator

Media, schools, daycares and adult conversations: What do these items have in common? All of these sources are opportunities for your child to hear and/ or learn about disasters. The stories your child hears may prompt worry and questions. Are you prepared to handle these concerns and questions? Here are some tips on how you can help your children cope with such emotions. This time of year, especially with recent events like the horrific Oklahoma tornado, is a good opportunity to hear from Child Care Aware on how to talk with children about natural disasters. Children can cope more effectively with a disaster when they feel they understand what is happening and what they can do to help protect themselves, family and friends. Provide basic information to help them understand, without providing unnecessary details that may only alarm them. Maintain your routine. Routines are very important to children. Keeping a regular schedule, especially when the world seems unpredictable, gives your child a sense of reassurance. Comfort lets them know they are safe. Make sure your child gets appropriate sleep, exercise and nutrition. Avoid too much news media coverage. When a tragic event happens, we can count on the media picking up the story. Keep in mind, media images can be graphic. If your child is watching television, she may have

mixed reactions about the things she is seeing. Depending on the age of your child, she may not have the understanding of time and space yet. As a result, she may assume that what she is seeing on the television is close to home. This may cause the fear that a disaster will hit in your neighborhood. Answer questions. Children are most afraid when they do not understand what is happening around them. Make sure when you are answering your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questions, you are calm and respond at their developmental level. Your preschoolerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thinking is literal and self-centered. Keep your answers simple and on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;need to knowâ&#x20AC;? basis. Too much or too many details may only cause him to be more afraid or concerned. Your schoolage child can be given a more detailed response. You may sit down with him to explain what happens during an earthquake or a flood. Get children involved in the effort. If your child feels like she wants to help those in need, let her. Find a local, or even national, organization or charity that is working to help those affected by the tragedy. This will show your child how people around the world are working together to help those in need. Ask your child what she would like to do. There are many things your child can do to be part of the relief efforts. Let children know there are many people who are working to help them and their community to recover after a disaster, such as repair crews for the electric company, or firefighters, police, paramedics, or other emergency personnel.

Other scholarships that were mentioned are: Jumpstart scholarships, Scarlet and Black Club funds, Spouse and Dependent grants and the Allen County Grant. The Allen County Grant was set up after Haldex began laying off employees, Masterson said, in an effort to encourage people seeking an education to move to Allen County.

KC ekes out win over Cleveland, back at .500 By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND (AP) — One win at a time, the Royals are scrapping their way toward the top in the AL Central. Pinch-runner Elliot Johnson scored from third base on

a wild pitch by reliever Matt Albers in the ninth inning as Kansas City rallied for a 2-1 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night. Johnson, inserted after Billy Butler opened the ninth with a double, sprinted home

and slid in safely after Albers’ pitch got under catcher Carlos Santana and went all the way to the backstop. With their 11th win in 13 games, the Royals, who were last in the division on June 5, moved past Cleveland into

second place. “We’re grinding out wins now, so I’ll take it,” said starter James Shields, who went six innings but got another hard-luck no-decision. See ROYALS | Page B2

While the calendar still says June, Doug Kerr’s thoughts have shifted to autumn. The Iola High football coach announced three upcoming camps for football players of all ages. A free camp for high schoolers will run July 15-19. A quarterback camp runs July 24 and 25, and will feature a number of special instructors, including past Mustang quarterbacks. The event is open for any potential signalcallers in third grade through high school. A free camp for youths runs July 31-Aug. 2. Information about the camps is available at www.iolafootball.com.

Allen victorious in modified thriller By SCOTT STEWART

HUMBOLDT — Three drivers accustomed to success at Humboldt Speedway put on quite a show Friday evening. John Allen, defending points champion, locked horns with current points leader Ryan McAninch and multiple points champion Justin Folk in the USRA/McCarthy Auto Group Modified feature. The epic, paint-swapping, wall-banging battle saw Allen emerge victorious after multiple lead changes. McAninch was second, with Folk third. Tanner Mullins took fourth.

Chase Sigg finished fifth. Newcomer Brad Carroll of Independence took his first ever Humboldt feature win in the Whitworth Construction pure stock division, wiring the field in an impressive performance. Jared Hayden finished second. Wayne Johnson was third. Chance Monday and Mitch Coulter rounded out the top five. Randy Zimmerman dominated the field in winning the Ray’s Metal Depot B-Mod clash.

WSU turns to Butler WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State’s new head baseball coach says he’ll make it a goal to recruit the best prospects in Kansas to the Shockers. Todd Butler was introduced Monday as the successor to Gene Stephenson, who was fired June 4 after 36 seasons. Stephenson left as the secondwinningest coach in Division I history. KFDI-FM repored Butler told a news conference he’ll be carrying a “heavy torch” fol-

lowing Stephenson. Butler has coached for 23 years and spent the last eight at Arkansas, most recently as associate head coach. During his tenure on the Arkansas staff, the Razorbacks went to eight NCAA tournaments, claimed two SEC Western Division titles and made two College World Series appearances. Butler says he doesn’t want prospective Shockers to leave Kansas for out-of-state schools, adding he’s “ready to get on fire to recruit.”

Bruins get jump in 2-0 victory By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer

BOSTON (AP) — The puck bounced off the post and rolled across the crease, away from the goal line. The red light flashed briefly, but replays would confirm that Tuukka Rask’s shutout streak was intact. For the last 122 minutes, 26 seconds of the Stanley Cup finals, the Bruins goalie has prevented Chicago from scoring. Rask made 28 more saves in Game 3 on Monday night to earn his third shutout of the postseason, leading Boston to a 2-0 victory over the Blackhawks and a 2-1 lead in the bestof-seven series. “We ran up against some of the best goalies in the league here,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. “Tonight I thought we made it rather easy on him as far as traffic and finding and seeing pucks. I think we’ve got to be better at

Corey Crawford made 33 saves for a Blackhawks team playing without Marian Hossa, who was scratched just before gametime. Game 4 is Wednesday night in Boston before the matchup of Original Six franchises returns to Chicago for a fifth game. The teams split the first two games there, with the Blackhawks winning Game 1 in tripleovertime and the Bruins stealing home-ice advantage on Paille’s goal in the first OT of the second game. “Obviously, you go triple-overtime, (then) overtime the next game,

it takes a lot of energy out of you,” Rask said. “But we’ll take a regulation win, for sure.” This time the intrigue came before the opening faceoff instead of after the end of regulation. Hossa and Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara both left the ice after warmups. But while Chara needed just some stitches after a collision with teammate Milan Lucic, Hossa was dropped from the lineup with an unspecified injury. “I was as surprised as anybody else,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “I can definitely tell you they lost a pretty important player on their roster, but that doesn’t mean we change our game. I think it’s important we stick with what we believe in.” Julien said Chara slipped and “had a little gash over his eye.”

“Nothing serious,” the coach said of his captain and No. 1 defenseman, who still managed to lead the team in ice time. Quenneville was less forthcoming with information on Hossa’s malady, sticking to the standard NHL diagnosis: Upper body. “We’ll say ‘day-to-day.’ We’re hopeful he’ll be ready for the next game,” he said, adding that it did not happen during warmups, as had been reported on the team’s Twitter account and the TV broadcast. “It was a game-time decision after the warmup there. That’s when we made the call, after warmup.” Hossa, who has three game-winning goals in the playoffs this year, was tied for the team lead with 15 playoff points and was third on the Blackhawks with 17 goals during the regular season.

Miami on the brink for Finals’ Game 6 MIAMI (AP) — They lost three times in three months in one of the most overpowering stretches the NBA has ever seen. Now the Miami Heat have lost three times in five games. So superb during the regular season, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat have to be something even more for the rest of the NBA Finals. They have to be perfect. The San Antonio Spurs can finish Miami off tonight in Game 6, reaffirming themselves as one of the league’s greatest franchises. If so, the Heat and their Big Three once again go from celebrated to devastated, just as they were two years ago when they came home from Texas facing this same predicament. The Spurs took a 3-2 lead with their 114-104 victory Sunday night. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili were all brilliant again, and Danny Green added to what could become one of the most out-of-nowhere finals MVP campaigns ever. One more victory makes the Spurs 5-0 in the NBA Finals, keeping pace with Michael Jordan’s 6-0 Chicago Bulls as the only teams to make it here multiple times and never lose. “We understand

Game 6 is huge. Obviously, you want to finish in the first opportunity you get. We understand that Miami is going to come out with a lot more energy, and they’re going to play better at home. — Tony Parker San Antonio guard

Game 6 is huge,” Parker said. “Obviously, you want to finish in the first opportunity you get. We understand that Miami is going to come out with a lot more energy, and they’re going to play better at home. They’re going to shoot the ball better. Their crowd is going to be behind them.” “We challenge ourselves to see if we’re a better team than we were,” Wade said. “Same position no matter how we got to it.” The Heat would also host Game 7 on Thursday. They’re trying to join the 1988 and 2010 Los Angeles Lakers and 1994 Houston Rockets as the only teams to rally from 3-2 down by winning the final two on their home floor since the NBA Finals went to a 2-3-2 format in 1985.

H Royals Continued from B1

“We’re real resilient as a team. Even when things got rough, we never gave up. We believe in ourselves.” Before going on this surge, the Royals lost 15 of 18 and at 23-32 manager Ned Yost’s future was very much in doubt. But the Royals are rising quickly. “A win is a win,” Butler said. “We’ve been playing good baseball and we’re enjoying it. We’re more confident now than we were when we started 17-10.” Royals reliever Aaron Crow (3-2) struck out two after putting the potential go-ahead run at third in the eighth, and Greg Holland stranded the tying run at third in the ninth for his 15th save in 17 tries.

Bryan Shaw (0-1) couldn’t protect a 1-0 lead for Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco, charged with just one run and four hits in 7 1-3 innings. Santana homered in the sixth off Shields, who remained winless since April 30 and has pitched much better than his 2-6 record. “He never gives in,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “He can throw any pitch in any count for a strike.” The Indians were unable to get the big hit all night. Twice they loaded the bases against Shields, who both times struck out Jason Kipnis to end the threats. In the ninth, Cleveland got the tying run to third when Michael Bourn doubled and advanced on a wild pitch. But Holland struck out Mike Aviles and retired Kipnis on an easy grounder to second. The Royals scored one run in the eighth and ninth to eke out the win. “It’s a ‘W’, man,” Yost said. “It’s important to get to .500, but now, it’s more important to move past that.” With the score tied

1-all, Butler opened Kansas City’s ninth with a double off Shaw, who walked Lorenzo Cain and was pulled by Francona for left-hander Rich Hill. David Lough dropped a bunt toward third that Hill fielded before losing his balance and falling in the infield grass. Albers got ahead of pinch-hitter Miguel Tejada before uncorking a pitch that skipped to the padded backstop. It bounced back quickly to Santana, who flipped the ball to Albers covering the plate, but Johnson slid in just ahead of the tag. “I tried to block it,” Santana said. “I think I was a little late putting the glove down.” Blanked for nearly eight innings by Carrasco, the Royals tied it in the eighth on Eric Hosmer’s bloop RBI double. Chris Getz, twice robbed of hits earlier by left fielder Michael Brantley, singled and Alcides Escobar sacrificed. Francona came out and replaced Carrasco, who was making his first start since serving a seven-game suspension and remains in search of his

first win since June 29, 2011. Rather than bring in struggling lefties Hill or Nick Hagadone to face left-handed hitters, Francona went with Shaw, who retired Alex Gordon on a weak popup before Hosmer dropped his hit over shortstop Aviles’ head and in front of Bourn in center to tie it at 1. It didn’t figure to be a pitchers’ duel with both starters coming in with blemished resumes. Shields hasn’t won since April 30, and Carrasco has dropped his last seven decisions and was twice suspended since his last victory. Santana broke up the scoreless matchup by leading off the sixth with his 10th homer, a shot into the stands in right. The homer came on Shields’ first pitch of the inning and 101st of the night. Although he has given up more than three runs just once in 13 starts, Shields can’t catch a break. The Royals are

averaging 2.2 runs in his outings. Carrasco was pitching for the first time since serving a suspension for throwing at New York’s Kevin Youkilis on April 9. In his previous outing, the right-hander was rocked for six runs and 10 hits in four innings by the Detroit Tigers, who didn’t have to worry about Carrasco throwing inside because he rarely tried. However, Carrasco challenged the Royals on the inner half of the plate and retired the first 13 in order before Cain singled sharply to right. “That was what we’re hoping for,” Francona said. Shields has pitched at least six innings in 29 straight starts. The Royals entered the series with the AL’s lowest ERA at 3.39. Kansas City’s bullpen came in with the best ERA (2.67) in the majors. There were 349 dogs in attendance as the Indians hosted “Puppypalooza.”

Kansas briefs Report: 11 percent of Kansas winter wheat ripe

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A new report estimates that just 11 percent of the Kansas winter wheat is now ripe, with harvest in much of southern Kansas just days away. The Kansas Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that last year by this late in the season, 97 percent of the crop had ripened. The average for this time of year is 44 percent. The agency also rated wheat condition as 45 percent poor to very poor. Twenty-seven percent was reported in fair condition while 24 percent was in good and 4 percent in excellent shape. The weekly snapshot of Kansas agriculture also showed that 98 percent of the corn crop had emerged. Its condition was rated as 8 percent poor to very poor, 31 percent fair, 54 percent good and 7 percent excellent.

Sprint sues to stop Dish Clearwire buyout

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

The Iola Register

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sprint is suing to stop Dish Networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s buyout of wireless data network operator Clearwire. The nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-largest cellphone carrier said the proposed deal violates the rights of Sprint and other Clearwire shareholders. Dish has offered to pay $4.40 per share for Clearwire, which has recommended that its shareholders approve the offer. That reverses its earlier stance in support of a takeover bid by Sprint, its majority shareholder. Sprint, headquartered in Overland Park, Kan., has bid $3.40 per share for the minority stake in Clearwire it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already own. Dish Network Corp., based in Englewood, Colo., a satellite broadcaster, has said its offer is contingent on being able to buy 25 percent of the company. But Sprint Nextel Corp. said late Monday that Dish cannot complete its offer without the approval of holders of at least 75 percent of Clearwireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shares. Sprint also contends that the deal violates shareholder rights un-

der Clearwireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charter and an equity holdersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; agreement. Sprintâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint, filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery, asks the court to prevent Dishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer from being consummated. Clearwire is incorporated in Delaware. Representatives with Dish and Clearwire did not immediately return calls seeking comment Tuesday morning from The Associated Press.

House speaker names new legislative director

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas House Speaker Ray Merrick has hired an attorney in the secretary of stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office as his new legislative director. Merrick, a Stilwell Republican, said Monday that B.J. Harden will join his staff in July. Harden will replace Wade Hapgood, who recently was promoted to chief of staff. Merrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former chief of staff, Christie Kriegshauser, left to take a job with the Kansas Chamber of Commerce. Harden has worked in the secretary of stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

office since August 2011. He also serves as a volunteer deputy executive director for the Kansas Republican Party. He received his law degree last year from Washburn University in Topeka.

Guard members returning from Afghanistan

SALINA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Members of a Kansas National Guard helicopter unit are on their way home from Afghanistan after a year of providing medical support. A welcome-home ceremony is scheduled Tuesday for about 20 members of Detachment 2, Company C, 2nd Battalion, 211th Aviation Regiment. The event is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at the Salina Army Aviation Support Facility. Guard officials say the Black Hawk helicopter unit deployed last July 15. Members trained in Texas before heading to Afghanistan. The unitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s duties included aeromedical evacuation, transport of patients and medical personnel and other support functions.

Kobach: voter law is still valid Stance could result in lawsuits TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach promised Monday that the state will keep enforcing its proof-of-citizenship requirement for new voters even after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a similar Arizona law. Kobach, a former law professor, said the two stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laws are different enough that the high courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t apply to the Kansas statute. He said the Kansas law doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same defects that prompted the court to declare the Arizona statute in conflict with a longstanding federal law designed to make registering to vote easier. But the Republican

gress. The Kansas law says elections officials must accept any voter registration forms, even if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not accompanied by proof of U.S. citizenship. In s u c h cases, people s t i l l c a n â&#x20AC;&#x2122; t vote until they provide the nec- Kris Kobach essary proof, but the law doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t limit the time they have to present the necessary documents to local election officials. Kobach said of the Supreme Court ruling, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anticipate that it will mean anything for Kansas.â&#x20AC;? Kobach helped draft tough laws in Arizona and Alabama for cracking down on illegal immigration but

secretary of stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance could prompt a federal lawsuit in Kansas from critics who believe the proof-ofcitizenship law is now suspect because of the U.S. Supreme Court decision. The high court ruled 7-2 that the Arizona law is pre-empted by the federal voter registration law, and the majority noted that the U.S. Constitution allows Congress to â&#x20AC;&#x153;make or alterâ&#x20AC;? state rules on the times, places and manner of elections for federal offices. Kobach said the Kansas law, initially proposed by his office, was drafted carefully to avoid a conflict. Several county election officials said they were waiting for guidance from his office before considering changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to proceed with implementing the law,â&#x20AC;? Kobach told The Associated Press during an interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We find nothing in the Supreme Court decision that indicates thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an infirmity with the Kansas law.â&#x20AC;? The Kansas proof-ofcitizenship law applies when people register to vote in the state for the first time, requiring them to provide a birth certificate, passport or other documents. Large, bipartisan majorities in the Legislature approved the measure in 2011 at Kobachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s urging, and it took effect in January. The Arizona statute said that election officials must reject any voter registration application that is not accompanied by proof of citizenship. The Supreme Court said that rule added a requirement for using a federal registration form not imposed by Con-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

said he had no hand in Arizonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proof-of-citizenship measure. But critics contend the Arizona and Kansas laws are so similar that the Supreme Court ruling applies to the Kansas statute. Holly Weatherford, program director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas and Western Missouri, said the issue doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rest with â&#x20AC;&#x153;any technical differencesâ&#x20AC;? but with whether the state is undercutting a federal policy favoring easier voter registration. She said that if Kansas officials continue enforcing the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s law, the ACLU will take â&#x20AC;&#x153;a very strong lookâ&#x20AC;? at litigation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Supreme Court is clear in this decision,â&#x20AC;? Weatherford said. Kobach and other supporters argue that proof-of-citizenship requirements prevent non-citizens, including immigrants in the U.S. illegally, from registering and voting and. In 2011, when lawmakers approved the policy, Kobach said his office found 32 noncitizens registered to vote in the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to make sure that only legal residents vote in elections,â&#x20AC;? said Kansas House Elections Committee Chairman Scott Schwab, an Olathe Republican and Kobach ally. Kansas has about 1.7 million registered voters, and critics of the proof-of-citizenship law see the threat of non-citizens voting as tiny. They believe proof-of-citiz enship requirements are far more likely to prevent elderly, minority and young citizens from registering.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — A suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowd of hundreds of mourners attending a funeral in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, killing 27 people. Among those killed was a newlyelected lawmaker who may have been the target, authorities said. The blast was the worst attack in the region since the May 11 nationwide elections installed a new government in the northwestern province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The carnage poses a challenge for the newlyinstalled provincial government of cricketerturned-politician, Imran Khan, who campaigned on a platform that he would negotiate with the Pakistani Taliban to bring an end to the years of fighting and attacks in northwestern Pakistan. The bombing, which took place in the village

of Sher Garh near the city of Mardan, killed 27 people and wounded at least 57, said a senior police officer in Mardan, Tahir Ayub Khan. A witness told Pakistan’s Dunya television that 700 to 800 people were attending the funeral when the suicide bomber detonated the device. “We all fell down after the blast,” he said. “There were bodies and wounded everywhere.” The lawmaker, Imran Khan Mohmand, ran in Pakistan’s May 11 parliamentary and provincial elections as an independent candidate and later supported the party of Imran Khan, the excricketer. This was the second provincial lawmaker affiliated with the party to be killed since the election. Another lawmaker, also an independent who later joined Khan’s party, was shot dead earlier in the month.

Military plan affects women Combat jobs included in future By LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Military leaders are ready to begin tearing down the remaining walls that have prevented women from holding thousands of combat and special operations jobs near the front lines. Under details of the plans obtained by The Associated Press, women could start training as Army Rangers by mid-2015 and as Navy SEALs a year later. The military services have mapped out a schedule that also will include reviewing and possibly changing the physical and mental standards that men and women will have to meet in order to quality for certain infantry, armor, commando and other frontline positions across the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Under the plans to be introduced Tuesday, there would be one common standard for men and women for each job. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel reviewed the plans and has ordered the services to move ahead. The move follows revelations of a star-

tling number of sexual assaults in the armed forces. Earlier this year, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said the sexual assaults might be linked to the longstanding ban on women serving in combat because the disparity between the roles of men and women creates separate classes of personnel — male “war-

open up its Riverine force and begin training women next month, with the goal of assigning women to the units by October. While not part of the special operations forces, the coastal Riverine squadrons do close combat and security operations in small boats. The Navy plans to have studies finished by July 2014 on allowing women

Under details of the plan obtained by the Associated Press, women could start training as Army Rangers by mid-2015 and as Navy SEALs a year later. riors” versus the rest of the force. While the sexual assault problem is more complicated than that, he said, the disparity has created a psychology that lends itself to disrespect for women. Under the schedules military leaders delivered to Hagel, the Army will develop standards by July 2015 to allow women to train and potentially serve as Rangers, and qualified women could begin training as Navy SEALs by March 2016 if senior leaders agree. Military leaders have suggested bringing senior women from the officer and enlisted ranks into special forces units first to ensure that younger, lower-ranking women have a support system to help them get through the transition. The Navy intends to

to serve as SEALs, and has set October 2015 as the date when women could begin Navy boot camp with the expressed intention of becoming SEALs eventually. U.S. Special Operations Command is coordinating the matter of what commando jobs could be opened to women, what exceptions might be requested and when the transition would take place. The proposals leave the door open for continued exclusion of women from some jobs if research and testing find that women could not be successful in sufficient numbers. But the services would have to defend such decisions to top Pentagon leaders. Army officials plan to complete gender-neutral standards for the Ranger course by July 2015.

ENNISKILLEN, Northern Ireland (AP) — World leaders at the G-8 summit have declared that governments must work together to close loopholes that allow multinational companies to avoid paying taxes in their home countries.

In a joint statement at the conclusion of a two-day summit, leaders of eight of the world’s wealthiest countries say tax authorities should automatically share information “to fight the scourge of tax evasion” and make it harder for companies to “shift their profits across borders to avoid taxes.” As part of the G-8’s

plans, which will be developed at a G-20 summit later this year, multinationals would be obliged to declare how much tax they pay in each country where they operate. The G-8 initiative announced Tuesday reflects widespread anger over the ability of foreign companies to funnel profits to tax-friendly countries.

Narcissistic birds can be a messy issue Dear Tom and Ray:

Every morning when I walk out the door to go to work, there is bird poop all over the sides of my car. Always in the same exact spot. Granted, there are telephone/cable/electrical wires hanging over my driveway, connected to my house. And there is a tree nearby. But neither the tree nor the wires hang directly over my car. I know for a fact that the birds like to sit on my side-view mirrors and do their business all over my car. I’ve washed it off once already a week ago, but now it’s getting just downright embarrassing, so it’s time for another washing. This didn’t happen last spring, so I don’t know what’s gotten into the birds that would drive them to destroy the appearance of my vehicle. Any suggestions on how to keep the birds

away from my precious black 2007 Ford Fusion? Thanks. — Megan RAY: I think you’ve got some narcissistic birds, Megan. Maybe they’re celebrity birds?

TOM: We helped a woman once who had a similar problem. One particular bird could see his reflection in the car window, so he liked to sit on the mirror and admire himself. RAY: I guess he particularly liked to admire himself after breakfast, because her car looked a lot like yours does. TOM: Actually, we don’t know if he was admiring himself or “hitting on” that pretty bird he “saw” in his reflec-

tion. RAY: In any case, you can eliminate the appeal of your car for these birds in one of two ways. You can cover up the windows so they can no longer see their reflections ... TOM: Or you can make the “perches” less appealing. That’s the way I would go. RAY: You know the birds are sitting on the side-view mirrors. So cover them with something that makes it hard for them to sit there. TOM: Like a taser? RAY: No. Not nice. I would suggest trying something like birthday party hats. You know, the cone-shaped hats with the elastic chin straps? Buy a bag of those, and toss them in the car. When you get home at night, put one on top of each side-view mirror. You even can use the elastic bands to hold

them in place. The conical shape should make it hard for the bird to perch there, and I’m guessing they’ll find someplace else. TOM: I like the party hat idea. They’re cheap, and easily replaced. So if one gets too soggy after a rainstorm, for instance, you can retire that one and slap on another. Go to iParty.com and stock up, Megan! RAY: Well, don’t get too many, because you might not need to use them for long. Once you interrupt these birds’ routines, they may go find another car that they like better and forget about what fun it is to Jackson Pollack your Fusion. TOM: Or maybe they’ll decide to fork over $25 a month and avail themselves of the full-length mirrors at a nearby gym. Good luck, Megan.

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.

Western states battle wildfires Officials suspect arson in blaze that destroyed 502 homes C O L O R A D O SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Rain helped firefighters douse Colorado’s most destructive wildfire in state history, while a new wind-whipped blaze in California forced evacuations and threatened homes Monday near Yosemite National Park. Investigators believed Colorado’s Black Forest Fire was human-caused, and were going through the charred remains of luxury homes destroyed and damaged in it last week. Even though the fire was mostly contained and more evacuation orders were being lifted Monday night, officials were not letting victims back into the most developed area where there was concentrated devastation from the fire because the area was being treated as a possible crime scene. Residents have been anxious to return but investigators want to preserve evidence, and firefighters also are working to make sure the interior of the burn area is safe, by putting out hot spots and removing trees in danger of falling. “We’re not ignoring you and we’re with you,” El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said. In some cases, residents who were escorted back for emergency situations have refused to leave again. Sheriff ’s officials said Monday that 502 homes have been lost in the 22-square-mile fire near Colorado Springs, which is 75 percent contained. Two unidentified people who were trying to flee were found dead in the rubble.

and has burned about 1½ square miles or 900 acres, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Daniel Berlant said. With more than 140 engines and two helicopters on the scene, the crews have contained about 15 percent of the blaze so far. “The strong winds and dry conditions have been major factors. The fire moved quickly,” said Berlant, adding that Monday’s weather forecasts estimate gusts of up to 20 miles per hour. No structures have been burned as the exact cause of the fire has yet to be determined, Berlant said. In New Mexico, crews have contained the majority of the 94 square miles of wildfires raging throughout the state. The largest fire, the 37-square-mile Thompson Ridge Fire, was 80 percent contained. Near Colorado Springs, there were no lightning strikes when the fire broke out last Tuesday amid recordbreaking heat so it’s believed the fire must have been caused by a person or a machine. Maketa said Monday that local, state and federal investigators are “zeroing in on the point of origin” of the fire and that should help allow residents of the areas hit hardest to temporarily return home. He said crews were working to bring in some heavy equipment to help that work. He said residents could be temporarily allowed back today or Wednesday, promising authorities would work
