Tides turning in Colorado fires By THOMAS PEIPERT Associated Press

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Firefighters are getting a better handle on the most destructive wildfire ever in Colorado, but they’re still struggling against hot spots that could threaten homes that have been spared by the massive blaze. Teams got help Sunday from the weather as steady rain moved through the densely

wooded Black Forest near Colorado Springs in the afternoon. “Every bit of rain helps the crews mop up. It’s just adding another nail in the coffin,” fire spokesman Brandon Hampton said. Nearly 500 homes have been burned by the 22-square-mile fire, which is 65 percent contained. Crews hope to have it fully under control by Thursday. With evacuees anxious to re-

turn, crews are digging up and extinguishing hot spots, laborintensive work that’s needed because extremely dry grass and trees could quickly ignite. Even though the fire was no longer active enough on Sunday to produce a large smoke plume, El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa said it wasn’t safe for people to return home until roads and downed power lines were repaired.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican Gov. Sam Brownback on Saturday showed his frustration with part of the state budget passed by the GOP-dominated Kansas Legislature by vetoing the entire Department of Corrections allotment for fiscal year 2015. Brownback signed the bill containing a budget of more than $14 billion for each of the next two fiscal years, starting in July. Although the governor used his power to veto multiple line items, most of the decisions made by lawmakers about spending will take effect. He let stand cuts in higher educating spending, even though he’d opposed any reduction in state funding and went on statewide tour in April and May to build opposition to the idea. In a message to legislators, he called on them to work with the state Board of Regents to “craft a shared vision for higher education.” Corrections department officials have worried that they’ll have to trim spending on community programs and lay off parole officers. The governor vetoed several line items that together trimmed almost $3 million in spending from the agency’s budget for the fiscal year 2014, which begins in July, and Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts said those actions “make

the state safer.” Brownback’s decision to veto the Department of Corrections’ budget for fiscal year 2015 — which contained more than $9 million in cuts — is mostly symbolic, because legislators will have an opportunity to draft another version next year. He approved most of the prison s y s t e m ’ s Gov. Brownback budget for fiscal year 2014, which begins in July. “The Department of Corrections plays a key role in maintaining our state’s public safety,” Brownback said. “Because I consider it inadequate, I veto the FY 2015 budget and look forward to working with the 2014 Legislature in finding the Department sufficient resources to ensure public safety is not imperiled.” Brownback and Republican legislators made a point of fashioning two years’ worth of spending, saying it would promote stability and allow for greater planning. They also said it would open up time every other year to deeply examine some spending issues. The overall budget would total $14.5 billion for fiscal year 2014, and about $14.2 billion for fiscal 2015, See BUDGET | Page A4

Radio field day Saturday, Sunday By BOB JOHNSON

Fees Park at the west edge of Gas will be alive with conversations from around the country this weekend, courtesy of ham radios operated by members of the Iola Radio Club. The IRC will participate in the American Radio Relay League’s annual field day activities. Local hams will set up equipment Saturday morning and be on the air until about 10 that night, take a break and then complete the exercise Sunday morning. “Anyone with an interest in ham radio is invited to stop by to visit and observe the club’s activities,” said member Dale Roberts. Previous field days have

been in Riverside Park. Fees Park was selected this year because of its higher elevation, which members think will give them a better opportunity to connect with operators elsewhere in the nation, perhaps even some overseas. Last year one contact was made in Hawaii. ARRL Field Day is the most popular on-the-air event in the United States and Canada, held the fourth weekend each June. More than 35,000 radio amateurs gather with their clubs, groups or friends to operate from temporary and remote sites, Roberts said. While operators mean to have fun, they also practice for emergencies by setting up temporary stations remote from their homes and vehicles. Most Iola Radio Club memSee RADIO | Page A4

There is now a more level playing field for Allen Community College students hoping to hold onto their financial aid. Cynthia Jacobson, vice president for student affairs, was successful during Thursday night’s board of trustees meeting in garnering approval to make changes to the aid policy. Prior to the changes, transfer students who were noncompliant with the financial aid policy for one or more semesters with their former institutions were merely placed on “warning” for financial aid. Changes would now take into consideration whether transfer students would be placed on suspension. Jacobson said for students to keep their financial aid money, they must comply with three requirements:

— Over the course of a semester, 75 percent of the courses the student registers for must be completed. — Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher. — Students must be ontrack to complete their associates degree in 96 credit hours or less. If students are not compliant in any of the three stipulations, they are placed on “warning,” then, on the second offense, they are placed on financial aid suspension and will not receive funds for that semester. She said 33 students would have transferred to ACC on suspension in the past year if the changes would have been made earlier. “Our default rate is high, we always need to look at ways to bring it down,” Jacobson said. She said the new regulations are not meant to penalize students, but prevent them

from getting in over their head with students loans they are not prepared to pay back. “It’s not meant to penalize the students,” she said. “It’s meant to safeguard them.” She said the new policy changes would help prevent financial aid fraud as well — those who would look to take advantage of aid money often are deterred by more stringent requirements. In other business: — Board members approved a three-year contract with Jarred, Gilmore and Phillips for auditing services. The contract totaled $37,500, or $12,500 per year. — ACC renewed the athletic insurance policy through Bob McCloskey Insurance. The college maintains athletic insurance on a partially selfinsured plan, covering initial costs until heavier claims require deeper coverage.

GOP warns immigration bill could decide 2016 election WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans’ hopes to reclaim the White House in the 2016 elections hinge on whether they support — or sabotage — the immigration overhaul being debated in the Senate, two lawmakers who helped write the proposal warn. Sen. Lindsey Graham, RS.C., on Sunday told conservatives who are trying to block the measure that they will doom the party and all but guarantee a Democrat will remain in the White House after 2016’s election. Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., went a step further and predicted “there’ll never be a road to the White House for the Republican Party� if immigration overhaul fails to pass. The Senate is moving forward with an overhaul and appears to be on track to have a vote from the full Senate by July 4. A timeline for a House proposal is less certain, although leaders say they are working on plans that more closely follow conservatives’ wish list.

The Senate last week overcame a procedural hurdle in moving forward on the first immigration overhaul in a generation. Lawmakers from both parties voted to begin formal debate on a proposal that would give an estimated 11 million immigrants in the


rity goals that the government must meet before immigrants living in the U.S. illegally are granted any change in status. Meanwhile, one of the proposal’s authors, who is considering a White House campaign, refused again to pledge support for the measure with-

We’re in a demographic death spiral as a party and the only way we can get back in good graces with the Hispanic community, in my view, is pass comprehensive immigration reform. If you don’t do that, it really doesn’t matter who we run. — Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

out changes conservatives have demanded. “I think 95, 96 percent of the bill is in perfect shape and ready to go. But there are elements that need to be improved,� said Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. Republicans are demanding tougher border security measures and stricter standards

for who qualifies for government programs such as Social Security and health care. Rubio is trying to balance concerns from his party’s conservative flank, which has great sway in picking a nominee, with the political attempt to win over Hispanic and Asian-American voters who overwhelmingly favored President Barack Obama’s reelection in 2012. Further complicating Rubio’s presidential aspirations, the Republicanled House hews toward tea partyers. “After eight years of President Obama’s economic policies, and, quite frankly, foreign policy, people are going to be looking around,� Graham said. “But if we don’t pass immigration reform, if we don’t get it off the table in a reasonable, practical way, it doesn’t matter who you run in 2016. We’re in a demographic death spiral as a party and the only way we can get back in good graces with the Hispanic community, in my view, is pass comprehensive immigration reform. If you don’t do that, it

really doesn’t matter who we run.� In 2012, Obama won reelection with the backing of 71 percent of Hispanic voters and 73 percent of Asian voters. A thwarted immigration overhaul could again send those voting blocs to Democrats’ side. That has led some Republican lawmakers to support immigration reform, but the party’s conservative base still opposes any legislation that would create a pathway to citizenship for immigrants living here illegally. Democrats are well aware of the numbers. “I would tell my Republican colleagues, both in the House and the Senate, that the road to the White House comes through a road with a pathway to legalization,� Menendez said. “Without it, there’ll never be a road to the White House for the Republican Party.� Graham spoke on NBC’s “Meet the Press.� Menendez was interviewed on CNN’s “State of the Union.� Rubio was on ABC’s “This Week.�

Wichita to debate gun law Kansas briefs WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita area officials will consider this week whether to seek a sixmonth exemption from a new state law that allows permit holders to carry concealed handguns in public buildings. Both the city council and the Sedgwick County commissioners will take up the issue this week, The Wichita Eagle reported. The new state law goes into effect July 1, allowing permit hold-

ers to take concealed handguns into public buildings, including courthouses, police stations and libraries. City and county governments are allowed to prohibit concealed carry in certain buildings as long as “adequate security measures� are in place. City and county governments that want to exempt certain buildings from the new law until 2017 must submit their security plans to

Rossville gets $532K grant for street project ROSSVILLE, Kan. (AP) — Rossville has been awarded a $532,000 federal grant to help improve its downtown streetscape. The Kansas Department of Transportation announced it has chosen 35 projects to receive federal transportation enhancement funding, which KDOT will administer. The Topeka CapitalJournal reports the Rossville project was picked from among 91 applications. Applicants have to pay at

least 20 percent of the project’s costs. Rossville city clerk, Linda Gentry, says the downtown streetscape project is expected to cost $665,000, which puts the city’s share at $133,000. Gentry said the Rossville City Council will likely consider issuing bonds to cover some of the city’s share, while residents plan to work to raise money to pay the rest. Rossville is a city of about 1,150 people in northwest Shawnee County.

the state. The purpose of the six-month exemption is to give those governments time to determine how they will adequately secure any buildings in which permit holders are not allowed to carry a handgun. Wichita officials’ early estimate is that it would cost is about $1 million for equipment plus $14.5 million a year for security personnel. The estimated cost is for all city facilities where concealed weapons are now prohibited. The county hasn’t made any similar cost estimates. On Tuesday, city council members will vote on whether to seek the six-month exemption. County commissioners on Wednesday will consider whether to seek a similar delay for countyowned buildings. Other local governments, including Shawnee and Reno counties, have already asked for the sixmonth exemption. Dale Goter, government relations manager for Wichita, said the city could also seek a fouryear exemption from the law once the six-month delay is up in Jan. 1, 2014. Sedgwick County spokeswoman Kristi Zukovich says commissioners don’t know if they’ll seek the longer exemption.

Tallgrass Prairie holding annual butterfly count

STRONG CITY, Kan. (AP) — The annual Flint Hills butterfly census is coming up, and officials at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve are inviting the public to take part. The daylong count is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, starting at the preserve’s stone barn on Kansas 177 just north of Strong City. Officials say no experience with identifying butterflies is necessary. Volunteers are asked to bring binoculars, water, sunscreen and bug spray. Last-minute walk-ins will be welcomed as volunteers are divided into groups for a full or halfday of counting. The Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve is located in eastern Kansas’ Chase County. It’s a partnership of The Nature Conservancy and the National Park Service.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Life in the tropics Saturday’s monsoon most likely canceled many a picnic. The torrential rains and high winds pounded our area, leaving in their wake cooler temperatures and steady rains that accumulated to more than 3 inches in area rain gauges. To the east, Springfield, Mo., was deluged with as much as 10 inches of rain also on Saturday. And though Sunday’s temperatures peaked at 90 degrees, the equally high humidity created the “feels like 100 degrees” — an almost tactile reading of the weather. Although we’re not technically a tropical climate — by a good 14-plus degrees to the north of the equatorial zone, whose upper limit is about 23 degrees — days like Sunday make us appreciate the luxury of air conditioning. May, June and July is our rainy season, with June averaging slightly more than 5 inches of rain, putting us well above the 2.5 inches of moisture many tropical climates average. Of course, in Belize, for example, that much comes in a “dry” month. In Iola, we’ll average just shy of 38 inches of rain a year, whereas in Central America the average rainfall is 75 inches. Their rainy season has just begun. They can typically expect 10 inches of rain this

month. The precipitation of other countries that encircle the Earth’s girth fluctuates. Myanmar is a moderate 32 inches a year, while Ethiopia soaks up about 38 inches of rain a year and maintains a moderate climate rarely above 80 degrees or below the mid-30s. Most countries along the equator — Central America and the northern third of South America, and the Asian countries of India, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines and Borneo — all experience rainy seasons. The oddballs are Africa and northern Australia. While geographically they lie in the equatorial zone, their climates are intensely dry. The massive Sahara Desert in northwest Africa is a classic example as is the Australian Outback; nary a bird of paradise to be found in either location. WEATHER makes for an interesting study of contrasts not only between climates, but cultures, because we adapt to our surroundings. Hence most closets here contain fleece-lined boots as well as flip-flops, which at one time would have been a curiosity among remote tribes of the Amazon, perhaps.

Kansas children more vulnerable As the 2013 session of the Kansas Legislature came to a close, I was left wondering: Who will stand up for Kansas children?

Shannon Cotsoradis Kansas Action for Children

Knowing that the future of tobacco settlement dollars is unclear, the majority of legislators still chose to vote for a budget that raided another $9.5 million from the Kansas Endowment for Youth — the endowment for children’s programs that has already been raided to the tune of more than $140 million over the years — and earmarked $12 million from the Children’s Initiatives Fund for a reading software program that will likely impact only a handful of urban schools. These outcomes alone are

troubling. But when I consider policymakers’ failure to restore the Child and Dependent Care Credit, which helps families afford quality child care; their consideration of legislation that would have eliminated a program designed to match dollars that low-income families save for their child’s postsecondary education and, ultimately, the reduction in funding available for the program; and their repeated attempts to erode the Earned Income Tax Credit, a program that is widely considered the single most effective tool for lifting families with children out of poverty, it gives me great pause. After the 2012 election, we lost a number of champions for children in the Statehouse. With so many new faces in the Legislature in 2013, introducing our work and capturing their attention among numerous competing issues was certainly a challenge. But with change comes new opportunities. We are building relationships with lawmakers

who understand the importance of standing up for policies and public investments that help Kansas children grow up with the best chance for success in life. That means ensuring that health care is accessible, early learning opportunities are high quality and programs that promote families’ economic security are protected. So, despite my disappointment about some of the outcomes this year, I am convinced that many new legislators share our commitment to make Kansas the best place to live, work and raise a family. I am also hopeful that when they develop a deeper understanding of the programs that serve children and families across the state, they will harness the independent spirit and strength of conviction we witnessed several times during this legislative session and stand up for Kansas children. — Shannon Cotsoradis is president and CEO of Kansas Action for Children.

Return trip to childhood home stirs up memories Yes, Thomas Wolfe, you can go home again. At least I did during the first week of June.

It would have been hard for life to have been better. I came to the inevitable fork in the road (Yogi’s advice: “Take it.”) in 1954-55 when I was finishing my Air Force stint at Forbes AFB, Topeka. My consultant, Dr. Dan Tappen, a talented and very busy obstetrician and gynecologist, made us an offer we could not refuse. I practiced with Dan for 15 years and Dr. Jimmie Gleason, a great addition to eastern Kansas medicine, from 1964 to 1970. In 1970, I did what only an out-stater would do. I ran against a well-liked Republican incumbent, Congressman Chester Mize, and won, thanks to the civil rights issue and

the unresolved war in Vietnam. My service was short, two terms, and crashed when I lost narrowly to Senator Bob Dole, a Republican leader,

Not this time. who, along with enough Kansans, realized lawful abortions were being done at the medical school and nearly everywhere else in Kansas. But I was the only one in their sights nationally in 1974. Let’s go back to 1943 smalltown Lexington, Ill., population 1,298, about 600 more today as a bedroom community for Bloomington-Normal, 15 miles down old Route 66, today’s Interstate 55. McLean County, Ill. and Shawnee, County, Kan., are about the same population. On the southern edge of Lexington is a nice five bedroom home, where an uncle and aunt lived until I was 10. Uncle Wheaton died and Aunt Minnie who reared Dad when his mother died at age 35 of pulmonary tuberculosis, remarried and moved to Nebraska. We got the home because Dad had loaned his uncle money trying to help him survive land losses during the Depression. There it stood, even today one of the nice old homes in Lexington. I had hesitated for years to ask to visit, though I

for, the home-owners pleased to show their home of 28 years. In addition, they are Democrats, which are harder to find in Central Illinois than four-leaf clovers. The old barn, where I had a couple of farm-boy experiences, is still there. My dad died of a physician’s mistake when I was 15. Later, I left the barnyard gate open, and dogs killed over 50 chickens that were just short of being fryers. The next night, I sat in the haymow with a 20-gauge shotgun, and sure enough, about midnight the dogs returned. I blasted; the dogs howled; and went yipping out the open gate that had got us all in trouble. We never found a dead dog, but we found a trail of blood, and the dogs never returned. I used to tell another Lexington barn story on the campaign trail, most often in one of the 16 rural counties in my congressional district. A cow with calf had a stalled labor. The calf ’s two front legs and nose were out, but nothing more happened. I called the vocational ag teacher.

“Where is she, in the barn?” Yep. “Do you have a strong stanchion and a block and tackle?” Yep. “Well, hook it up to the feet and stanchion and pull.” I did. There was a sucking sound, and in minutes the calf was on its feet, and mom was not long after. “And that’s when I decided to become an obstetrician and gynecologist.” Various sounds from the audiences followed.

So there are a couple of wellremembered experiences of adolescence. Equally impressive was moving from a twobedroom home without inside plumbing or electricity to one with five bedrooms and two and one-half baths. And, an excellent town library is still about 600 yards down the road. Responsive to my curiosity, Mr. Henry Luce began LIFE magazine that year. It was a rare day I didn’t get by the Smith Library.

Today in history Today’s Highlight in History: On June 17, 1963, the U.S. Supreme Court, in Abington (Pa.) School District v. Schempp, struck down, 8-1, rules requiring the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer or reading of Biblical verses in public schools. In 1885, the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York Harbor aboard the French ship Isere. In 1961, Soviet ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev defected to the West while his troupe was in Paris.

In 1972, President Richard M. Nixon’s eventual downfall began with the arrest of five burglars inside Democratic national headquarters in Washington, D.C.’s Watergate complex. Thought for Today: “The truth is that there is nothing noble in being superior to somebody else. The only real nobility is in being superior to your former self.” — Whitney Young, American civil rights leader (1921-1971).

The program allows worldwide connections between stations, or from computer to station, greatly enhancing amateur radio operators’ communications capabilities. Bart Cox passed his general test. The next meeting, open to anyone with an interest in amateur radio, will be at 7 p.m. July 11 at Iola City Hall.

though the latter figure would include a revised budget for the Department of Corrections. In a statement, House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Stilwell Republican, said he is “disappointed” by the governor’s decision to alter the budget approved by lawmakers. “At the same time, we will continue to work with him and the Senate to address current concerns while examining ways to make state government more efficient,” he said. Aside from a short, formal adjournment ceremony on Thursday, legislators have finished for the year. They still have an opportunity to override Brownback’s veto with a two-thirds majority, but such an effort doesn’t appear likely. Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley criticized Brown-

back for “the most irresponsible budget in years.” Democrats contend Brownback and other Republicans want to hold down spending to phase out personal income taxes. Lawmakers approved cuts in income tax rates this year and last year. “Sam Brownback has signed a budget that will result in cutting jobs essential to our state institutions, raising tuition on our students and jeopardizing the public safety of our citizens,” Hensley said. Brownback also vetoed two budget items that Attorney General Derek Schmidt, another Republican, had urged him to strike. One would have diverted $600,000 from licensing fees for concealed carry permits to fund general government programs and the other would have placed a salary cap on state

agencies, including the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. ON HIGHER educa-

tion, Brownback had limited options because the cuts weren’t separated from the budgets for the Board of Regents and state universities. Legislators cut spending on public universities by 1.5 percent each of the next two years; community and technical colleges will have their spending cut 1.5 percent in fiscal 2015. But some regents have said the cuts are deeper than they appear because lawmakers also reduced the state funds available for salaries. Brownback said legislators need to work with the regents, who oversee the higher education system, to maintain “our high standard of excellence” while using state dollars efficiently.

H Fires Continued from A1 Additionally, the death of two unidentified people trying to flee the fire was still being investigated. Maketa said he was in no rush to have people return to an area that, at least for now, was still being considered a crime scene. “I’m not going to compromise the evidence by allowing people in too soon,” he said. Some evacuees outside the burn area have been allowed back home. Those with property in the burn area have returned with escorts to check on their property or to pick up items, but Maketa said some were then refusing to leave once they were done. He urged fire victims to cooperate or risk being arrested. Trudy Dawson, 59, was at work when the fire broke out Tuesday and quickly spread in recordbreaking heat and strong winds. Her 25-year-old daughter, Jordan, who was on her way from Denver to visit, spotted the smoke, called her mother and went to the house. With only 30 minutes to evacuate, she only had time to find a family cat and to open a corral gate

so the horses could flee. Jordan and two adult siblings went to the property the next day with a sheriff ’s escort and found the horses, unhurt, standing in their corral. “It was just skeletons of vehicles and ash every-

where. It’s haunting. It looks like it’s right out of a horror movie,” Jordan Dawson said. It’s unknown what sparked the blaze, but investigators believe it was human-caused and have asked for help from the state and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as they sift through the ash. It’s only a few miles away from the state’s second most destructive wildfire, the Waldo Canyon Fire, which burned last summer.

The memory of that fire may have made residents especially appreciative of firefighters. About 1,000 people turned out to line the road and cheer firefighters as they returned from lines Saturday night, fire spokesman Brandon Hampton said. Some of the aircraft used to fight the Black Forest Fire and other Front Range fires have been moved to fight a nearly 500-acre wildfire near Rifle Falls State Park in western Colorado. That fire erupted Friday from a smoldering lightning strike the day before, spokesman Pat Thrasher said. The residents of 12 homes were ordered to leave along with campers in the park as well as Rifle Mountain Park and the nearby White River National Forest. Crews were closer to containing other wildfires that broke out around the same time as Black Forest. In Canon City, 50 miles to the southwest, a fire that destroyed 48 buildings at Royal Gorge Bridge & Park was 85 percent contained and the park’s scenic railroad was running again.

WASHINGTON — As President Barack Obama prepared to go to Northern Ireland on Sunday to promote a new trade pact with the European Union, hopes are running high for many U.S. businesses eager to squeeze more cash from one of the world’s most lucrative markets. For poultry growers, it’s a chance to end a ban on chickens disinfected using chlorine, a widely accepted cleaning practice in the United States. For the confectionary industry, it’s a way to get rid of labeling requirements to disclose whether candy, gum or chocolates contain any genetically modified ingredients. And for Errico Auricchio, a Wisconsin cheese maker, it could help sell his Romano cheese throughout Europe, even though it’s not manufactured in the Italian city for which it’s named. With Europeans’ longstanding suspicions of American food, Obama faces an uphill climb in his bid to revise trading rules between the two giants. The stakes are high for the president, who wants to double U.S. exports under his watch and whose team has made a European deal a top economic plank of his second term. But in both Europe and the United States there’s skepticism, with many saying the historical hurdles and huge cultural differences will be hard to overcome. “This negotiation

Indians’ winning streak ends Iola’s AA American Legion squad saw its 13-game winning streak come to an end Saturday. The Post No. 15 Indians rallied after twice trailing by three runs to the Next Level Baseball 18s. But the rally fell one run short, with the tying run on first base, in a 6-5 loss. The defeat was the Indians’ first of the season, coming in the rain-shortened Allen Community College Red Devil Classic. Torrential rains cut short Saturday’s game and forced the cancellation of Sunday’s contests. In earlier action Saturday, the Humboldt Heat, an 18-andunder Babe Ruth League squad, thumped Girard, 9-1. Sunday’s rainouts erased an Indians-Heat matchup. Iola’s schedule picks back up Tuesday and Thursday as the Indians host West Franklin and Girard, respectively. Iola heads to Burlington for a tournament Saturday and Sunday. A PAIR OF three-run rallies in the third and fourth innings sparked the NLB 18s, an academy squad out of the Kansas City area. The Indians trailed 3-0 in the top of the fourth before Braden Larson drilled an RBI single to drive in Derrick Weir. Tyler Clubine followed three batters later with a tworun double to tie the score. But back-to-back doubles by NLB led to three more runs in the bottom of the fourth. The Indians gained a run back when Eric Heffern was hit by a pitch in the top of the fifth. He eventually scored on a wild pitch. Weir led off the sixth with a single. He also came around to score on a wild pitch before Aaron Barclay drilled a single. But NLB’s Brennan Rollen induced a strikeout to end the inning — and Iola’s last scoring opportunity, as it turned out. Storms arrived in the

Aaron Barclay, in a game Friday for the Iola AA American Legion baseball squad, went 2-for-3 Saturday for the Indians in a 6-5 loss. At left, Humboldt Heat’s Kason Siemens fields a ball for the Humboldt Heat Friday. Siemens had three hits and five RBIs in the Heat’s 9-1 win. Clubine went 2-for-3 with a double. Weir and Barclay singled twice. Larson had a single.

bottom of the sixth, forcing the game to be called. Mason Coons was saddled with the loss. He allowed six hits and a walk in four innings with five strikeouts. Trent Latta came on in relief, allowing a hit in 1 2/3 innings of work.

HUMBOLDT’S four-run first inning was more than enough for starting pitcher Grayson Pearish. The Heat were aided by two walks and two hit batters in the inning. Jacob Carpenter’s bases-loaded walk, followed by Pearish’s RBI, courtesy of a hit-by-pitch with the bases juiced, gave Humboldt a 2-0 lead. Kason Siemens doubled the advantage with a two-run single.

Siemens doubled in another run in the third, just ahead of Austin Beeman’s run-scoring single to push the Heat on top 6-0. Siemens collected his third straight hit — scoring Humboldt’s seventh and eighth runs, overall — with a tworun double in the fourth. He wound up going 3-for-3 with one run and five RBIs. Hunter Murrow singled twice, while Caleb Vanatta and Beeman each had a single. Pearish, meanwhile, shut down Girard on two hits over five innings of work. He struck out five.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Manu Ginobili had 24 points and 10 assists in a surprise start to spark the San Antonio Spurs to a 114-104 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, leaving the Spurs one victory away from their fifth championship. Danny Green scored 24 points and broke Ray Allen’s finals record for 3s in a series with 25. Tony Parker had 26 points for San Antonio. LeBron James scored 25 points on 8-for-22 shooting for the Heat and Dwyane Wade had 25 points and 10 assists. But the Heat missed 21 of their first 29 shots to fall behind by 17 points in the second quarter of another uninspired performance. Game 6 of the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in Miami. Whirling through the defense like the Manu of old, Ginobili shrugged off a postseason full of disappointment to deliver a performance that the Spurs have never needed more desperately. He hit 8 of 14 shots and had his highest points total since June 4, 2012. Tim Duncan had 13 points and 11 rebounds, Green was 6 for 10 from 3-point range, and Parker gutted through 36 minutes on that tender right hamstring. Kawhi Leonard had 16 points and eight rebounds, and the San Antonio shot 60 percent to overcome 19 turnovers.

Davis snaps skid; Royals top Rays By MARK DIDTLER Associated Press

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Wade Davis stopped his five-game winless streak, Jeff Francoeur homered, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 on Sunday. Davis (4-5) gave up two runs and five hits in six innings for his first win since he beat the Los Angeles Angels on May 15. It was the right-hander’s first game against the Rays, who traded him to the Royals during the offseason. After Francoeur hit a solo

homer in the fifth inning, Alcides Escobar and Alex Gordon had RBI singles to put the Royals ahead 4-2 in the sixth. Gordon added a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Francoeur had only 13 hits in 83 at-bats before delivering his third homer this season. Greg Holland, the fourth Kansas City reliever, earned his 14th save despite allowing a homer to Jose Lobaton in the ninth. Roberto Hernandez (4-7) allowed four runs and nine hits in 5 2-3 innings for Tampa Bay, which went 4-6 on a 10-game

homestand. The Rays announced during the game that right-hander Alex Cobb, who was hit on the right ear by a liner off the bat of Kansas City’s Eric Hosmer in the fifth inning Saturday night, had been discharged from Bayfront Medical Center. Tests showed Cobb has a mild concussion. He was put on the 7-day concussion list, and Tampa Bay recalled righthander Josh Lueke from Triple-A Durham. See ROYALS | Page B4

Iranians elect a moderate By A. SANDELS Los Angeles Times

BEIRUT — The election of Hassan Rowhani as Iran’s new president has raised hopes in the Arab world of increased engagement with other nations and a new era of moderation in the Islamic Republic. Rowhani, a soft-spoken, 64-year old bespectacled and turbaned cleric, will hold his first news conference today. His victory was featured prominently Sunday in many Arab newspapers. “Rowhani, the reformists’ candidate, is president of Iran,” the London-based, pan-Arab Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper headlined its front page. “Can Rowhani be another Khatami?” asked the English-language Saudi Gazette, referring to ex-Iranian President Mohammad Khatami, whose administration was relatively open to the world. Many speculated on whether Rowhani would be able to mend ties with Sunni Gulf nations, who have strained relations with Shiite Iran, part of a broader conflict between the two branches of Islam. Leaders from Gulf Arab monarchies appeared quick to congratulate Rowhani. These included Saudi Arabia, a fierce rival of Iran and a place where presidential elections are unheard of. “Wishing prosperity to the people of the brotherly Islamic Republic of Iran,” Saudi King Abdullah, a close U.S. ally, told Rowhani in a letter carried by the official Saudi news agency. “We look forward to working together for the good of this region,” the United Arab Emirates President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan wrote in a cable to Rowhani, state news agency WAM said. The rulers of Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait also congratulated Rowhani on his win, media reports said. The Gulf monarchies regularly accuse Iran of meddling in their domestic affairs. Particularly tense is the issue of Bahrain, where the Gulf Arab rulers accuse Iran of backing a Shiiteopposition movement against a minority Sunni dynasty. A few days before the election, Hassan Rowhani told Asharq alAwsat, the London-based newspaper, that forging better relations with neighbors would be one of his top priorities. “If elected, I will engage closely in diplomatic interaction and cooperation with all countries

in the region to remove the clouds of misunderstanding and rivalry,” Rowhani wrote in an email interview. Iran’s continued support of Syrian President Bashar Assad remains a major point of contention. Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been leading funders of rebels seeking to oust Assad. The recent intervention on Assad’s behalf by the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah, a close ally of Iran, has escalated tensions. On Saturday, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi officially broke off ties with war-torn Syria and publicly slammed Hezbollah. The deep strains about Syria were evident in commentary Sunday in Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper. “Analysts see that the official Iranian stance on the Syria is ... completely biased toward the Syrian regime,” wrote columnist Mahmoud Noby, warning of the possibility of a wider war that “everyone in the region will have to pay the price for.” In Lebanon, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah sent a cable to Rowhani congratulating him on the victory and saying he “revived the hopes” of Iranians. The reactions were less enthusiastic in Israel where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on the West not to ease the pressure on the Islamic Republic about its nuclear program simply because an apparent moderate has been elected president.

Kansas reinstated the death penalty in 1994. No one has been executed under the law, which would take place at the Lansing Correctional Facility by lethal injection. The last execution in Kansas was in June 1965 by hanging.

Gift inequality? Get over it Dear Carolyn: I have a bizarre dilemma that needs a light touch in handling. My wife, my children and I are very close to my grandparents, who live within an easy drive. We see them often and never miss birthdays, holidays, etc. My grandparents are generous with gifts but, in recent years, gifts have been replaced by checks (usually about $100) because it’s harder for them to get around to stores. No problems there, of course. The issue is that the amount given to me is usually double the amount given to my wife, who spends as much time with my grandparents as I do, if not more. I seriously doubt this is an intentional slight. My guess is that they don’t think of the implications for my wife, who is in a small way somewhat hurt by the move. It’s just a sense-of-worth thing that unfortunately is manifested in a monetary gift. Is there an easy way to handle this without hurting someone’s feelings or coming off as ungrateful? — T.

“Light touch”? How ’bout no touch. Wow. Sure, a stroke of the pen could indeed bring equality to Giftland, but that route is hardly “easy.” For one, there’s nothing simple about hurting your grandparents with the suggestion that their gifts haven’t been warmly received, and/ or insulting them with the implication that they haven’t been generous enough. It’s also an illusion that Giftland is in any need of equality. Your grandparents have known you, presumably, since your infancy. Even if you don’t agree that this alone justifies a larger gift, surely you — or your wife — can appreciate that others would? The genuinely easy solution is for your wife to realize she can’t expect her love or validation to come in the form she prefers. Or at all, though she’s apparently close to your grandparents. I realize this is advice for her more than it is for you, but I hope you’ll encourage her to see that having her children enjoy their great-


grandparents is its own validation. It would take shortsightedness of epic proportions to sell this for a hundred bucks. *** Dear Carolyn: So we’re moving out of

state and have to leave our house a week before school ends, but Mom had said we could stay with her for that week. Now, she says she can’t handle it. (To be fair we’re two adults, two kids, two dogs and a cat.) So we’re scrambling to place the animals and pay for a hotel. On the one hand, this is classic Mom, yanking help at the last minute to leave us hanging. On the other hand — even our nanny has offered us her place, and neighbors have offered their basements. So I can’t decide if I’m mad at my mom, or just grateful to have another Mom story to trot out at parties. And she hasn’t called since then — so should I call and let her off the

hook? — Mom flaked. One key word: “Classic.” One new mantra: I can’t lean on Mom. I can’t lean on Mom. I can’t lean on Mom. She apparently wants to be the person you lean on, and therefore makes the offer — but offering is easy. Following through requires resources that she apparently doesn’t have. A mother’s failings always feel personal to a child, but that doesn’t mean they actually are. For every argument you can make that not wanting you and your kids in her house is as personal as it gets, I can counter with an argument that when anyone talks a generous game but doesn’t come through, it’s always about her — specifically, her need to appear the hero and her shortage of character when it comes to the messy work of actually being one. I wouldn’t say this, of course, if she “yanked help” just this once (and didn’t go silent on you). But since she has, some of the responsibility falls on you here, for taking part in the series of choices that, predictably, becomes another

Mom story. That’s one of a few reasons you ought to call her. By the time this sees publication, your limbo will be over, right? So use that to view the whole thing as past, done, forgiven. Then, work on the future: Say to Mom that while you appreciate her impulse to help out, you and she both need to get better at recognizing what will push her in over her head. And when she keeps making offers to help anyway, recognize the pattern you’re both in, and break it. “No, Mom, but thank you for offering.” As in: Stop setting her up, or letting her set herself up, for these ritual failures. There’s also no need for you to “decide” on one feeling. If we don’t allow ourselves multiple, confusing, even conflicting feelings about our mothers, then how else do we learn to deal with people when the going gets gray?

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.

Rose rises to top at U.S. Open By The Associated Press

ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A steady hand gave Justin Rose the shiny U.S. Open Trophy. A wild ride gave Phil Mickelson yet another silver medal. Rose captured his first major championship on Sunday with remarkable calm and three pure shots on the punishing closing holes at Merion. A par on the 18th hole gave him an even-par 70, and that was good enough to become the first Englishman in 43 years to win Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national championship. Rose hit 5-iron to the first cut of rough, pinhigh on the 17th for an easy par. He smashed the most important tee shot of his career down the middle on the

final hole, about 15 feet short of the famous Ben Hogan plaque. And his approach rolled near the pin and settled against the collar of the green. As usual, someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big moment in the U.S. Open came at Mickelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense. Rose was in the scoring area a half-mile from the grandstands behind the 18th green where the fans began to chant, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go Phil!â&#x20AC;? as Mickelson paced off a lastditch effort to force a playoff. It was a long shot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 18th hole didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yield a single birdie all weekend. From about 40 yards away, Mickelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chip for birdie raced by the cup, securing Roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory. Mickelson, already in the U.S. Open record

book with five secondplace finishes, added another that will hurt as much any of them. Sunday was his 43rd birthday. It was the first time he was equipped with the outright lead going into the last day. His week began with a cross-country trip home to San Diego to watch his oldest daughter graduate from the eighth grade, returning just three hours before his tee time on Thursday. This was the same daughter born the day after his first runner-up finish in 1999. All the stars were aligned. None of the putts fell in. Mickelson wound up shooting a 74 in the final round and tied for second with Jason Day, who closed with a 71.
