Happy Father’s Day 2013
TELL US ABOUT YOUR DAD... “My dad was a very stable influence of my life. I learned so much from him, about people and working and horsemanship… Although my dad passed away before my sons were born, I know he would have been proud of the men they have become.” — Janet Sutterby Buck “My dad was my rock, he is the one who kept us in church. I miss him. Happy Father’s Day to you daddy, ‘cause I know you and mommy and Our Heavenly Father are watching over us and some day soon I will meet you in heaven.” — Tonie Vest “My dad was my stability, my hero, my guidance and my everything. He is not here anymore but I know he watches from heaven. I miss him more than words can say but I will see him again.” — Linda Mead

Biggest reward is being called Dad
Rogers takes on unconventional role

John Hughes is in a place he thought he’d never be — a widower of two years, a veteran in the U.S. National Guard, a stepfather to three of whom two call Dad. John has no biological children of his own. Due to an operation in his childhood, he can’t have children. But, his stepdaughters have seen him as a father figure for the past 15 years. “He is more of a father than a stepfather to me,” Helen Leckrone, his stepdaughter said. She and her sister, Tiffany, have been involved in John’s life since he met their mother, Tammy. The third stepdaughter, Marie, is not in contact
“Dad always is there when we need him,” Desiree Rogers said of her father, Lee Rogers, on the eve of Father’s Day. “No matter what, he’ll do without for us.” That’s praise any father would covet, as well as that from grandson Alex, 12: “He’s the best grandpa.” Three other grandkids who live on South Buckeye chime in with the similar tributes. Rogers, 47, watches after them Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until mid-afternoon, during the summer while their parents are at work. His wife, Melody, has things to do at home.

Westervelt on front lines against drugs By BOB JOHNSON email@example.com
The way out of addiction to alcohol and drugs is accountability, Jamie Westervelt told Iola Rotarians Thursday. Westervelt is a counselor at Preferred Family Healthcare, 726 W. Patterson Ave. The private company offers counseling in alcohol and drug abuse as well as mental health and domestic violence counseling. Most of her cases are referrals from the court system. “We seldom have walk-ins,” Westervelt said. She had a role in the development of Allen County’s drug court, including counseling now done online. Drug court means to keep offenders in the mainstream and working, rather than incarcerated. “Drug court is about accountability,” she said, with the objective to make those who have abused drugs and alcohol productive citizens. “We want them to find a job and be proud to have one,” Westervelt said, and also understand the advantage of not being involved in drugs or abusive levels of alcohol. “We’re also looking for people (employers) who are willing to take a chance and hire someone who has been in the court system.” Part of the battle is education, she said, making those
who have fallen into trouble understand that staying clean and being productive is a better way of life. The light bulb does pop on ocJamie casionally. Westervelt Westervelt said some o f f e n d ers are so proud of having a clean urine or drug test that “they frame it and put it up on the wall.” Drug court is working to the point that some clients tell Westervelt they’ve never before been held so accountable. They know full well a slip-up means jail time. While she strives to change lifestyles, Westervelt knows the likelihood of relapse is extremely high. “That’s something you have to accept, but I also work with clients to have a plan for what to do when it happens,” she said. Her patience has limits. “I’m done when they keep blaming everyone else for their problems,” she said. “I’m not their friend, not their mother, I’m their counselor.” With drug court in place, Westervelt’s workload has increased. When she joined Preferred Family Healthcare, she had 10 cases. “Now I have about 25,”
“He means comfort and encouragement in any obstacle I might need to overcome. When he lost his only son, he comforted me on the loss of a brother instead of dealing with his loss. My father has never put himself first, but last… I can only pray that I’m half the person he is.” — Stacy Wright “My dad is a role model. He means everything to me and I love him very much. Happy Father’s Day, Dad! I love you!” — Maggie Wilson “My dad means the world to me. He didn’t believe that one person was better than any other. Being popular and having money didn’t impress him. He was “old school.” He would open doors for anyone and would even walk me to the school door when I had 7:30 gym. I lost him 39 years ago… I know in my heart he is watching over all of us.” — Spring Sutterby “My dad means the world to me. I am so proud to be his daughter. He works very hard and he is a person everyone likes. He is loved by everyone. He is the best father in the world. I am so lucky to have a dad as wonderful as mine. I love you dad!” — Michelle Drury

Continued from A1 with the family. “I met their mother on a street corner,” John said with a laugh as he sat in his front lawn. He lives on a farm west of Elsmore. They met while he was visiting his rodeo partner in Arkansas City. Tiffany and Helen did not become involved in Tammy and John’s life until they were both 18, due to issues in Tammy’s earlier life. “Tammy never told me what happened,” John said. “I felt like it was her place to tell me when she was ready.” JOHN SERVED in the National Guard for 20 years. He was deployed in Germany shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks, served in Iraq from 2005 to 2006 and then spent a year in Djibouti, Africa. On March 17, 2010, he
spoke to his wife on the phone. “We told each other thank you for putting up with me,” John said of the last of their weekly chats. That night Tammy was killed in a car wreck. John heard the news at 4 a.m. the next morning and hopped the first flight home. During a layover in Chicago during the 24hour flight,“The strangest thing happened. I turned on my phone and got a text from her,” John said. The text read: “I’m at mom’s, I’ll be home later.” Then, it was just John. “I’d never thought I would be a widower,” he said. “Tammy dealt with a lot of problems that I am dealing with, she took care of everything.” He said he does his best to be there for his kids, though they have their

he said. “You treat them like your own; you praise them like your own kids, you scold them like your own kids.” JOHN IS a truck driver by trade, he hauls cattle around the area. He leases his truck now, because he was forced to sell his independent truck business when he had a series of strokes last year. He recently experienced another stroke, and was care-flighted to a Kansas City hospital. “Now I’m seeing a specialist in Fort Worth (Texas),” he said. His goal is to stay busy. He said he used to run three to five miles every day when he was in the National Guard, and now he is trying to work back up to that. “It’s a struggle,” he said. “If you let it get to you, you’re just going to sit around and waste away.” He turns 50 this year.

HELEN has two children, Scotty and Keair, and John tries to spend as much time with them as possible. He reminisced about Keair driving his truck while sitting in his lap, and going to cattle auctions with him. He pointed to the field where he taught Scotty how to ride a horse, even when the animal decided to run off on its own. Keair was two months old when he returned from Iraq, she is seven now and Scotty turns five this year. “The first person I wanted to see when I got back from Iraq was my granddaughter,” he said. “She’s papa’s girl.” He still thinks about what his life would be like if he had his own children. “It’s not easy, sometimes you wish you had kids of your own,” John said. But, when Tiffany and Helen call him Dad, that’s reward enough.

H Rogers Continued from A1 “Dad used to be a little embarrassed about telling people that he took care of his grandkids,” said daughter Desiree. “He said he’d never heard of a man taking care of kids,” a result of Rogers growing up in the 1960s when childcare often was considered a woman’s work. His willingness to take on the task, “makes him special to us,” said Desiree, speaking for herself and her siblings, Hope and David. Less than a month into summer vacation, Rogers has adjusted well to caring for the threesome, Emma, 9, Orion, 11, and Keegan, who will be 5 on Monday. “We watch a little TV, play electronic games and go outside now and then to play,” he said. The grandkids are adept at video games, and Rogers is learning, though his idea of a game is more likely to involve a bat and ball. “I played a little baseball when I was young, and I still like to watch it,” he said. His only hobby is col-
lecting coins, an interest he developed about 10 years ago, and today involves silver dollars, halves and “quite a few wheat pennies,” those minted between 1909 and 1958. Rogers has worked at Gates Corporation and Russell Stover Candies and as an overnight stocker for Walmart, jobs that came his way through recommendation of Manpower, but he has been out of work for a spell, which gave him opportunity to help out daughter Hope with her children this summer. “I’d like to get back on at Russell Stover,” he said. Also, there were times when he worked at Downtown Fine Foods, where El Charro is today, and The Greenery. “When I was young, I thought I would like to be a carpenter,” Rogers added, “but it never worked out.” He appreciates a chance to be outdoors, and has no qualms about mowing and tending a lawn. Rogers also is handy, Desiree crowed, and quickly can
put a power mower back to purring when its engine gets contrary. “THE THING about
Dad is he is dedicated to family,” Desiree said, recalling her days of youth when they often didn’t have much money, including spells without a car. Tough times brought the family together, she said. “Dad loves to play Santa Claus at Christmastime, and hand out

~ Journalism that makes a difference
A beautiful lesson, painfully learned As I lay bruised and bleeding just 45 minutes before my son Tim’s wedding last Saturday, I couldn’t help but take it as a sign.
Susan Lynn Register editor
God has never talked to me — and wouldn’t you know it if He did, it came as a reprimand — but at that point the thought came to me, “Susan, this is not about you.” Truth is, I couldn’t wait to get dolled up for the big affair. I pulled out all the stops: new dress, manicured nails, lots of bling. I had been looking forward to this day for months for how I would look. Yes, yes, the bride, too. We’d had fun pulling together what Violeta would wear on various occasions throughout the wedding weekend. We’d had a girls’ day complete with manicures, lunch and shopping. After the women in the wedding party had their hair done Saturday afternoon, we gathered at my daughter Louise’s house in Lawrence to relax and pull ourselves together before the 6 p.m. wedding. Finishing the last touches from an upstairs bedroom, I was called to come down and help Violeta secure her corseted top. “I’m coming,” I yelled down the stairs. I quickly grabbed my suitcase, bath towel, spare hangers, a coffee cup, and cell phone — not wanting to make two trips — and managed maybe two steps before I lost my footing and fell the length of the steep wooden stairway. I’m thinking the suitcase and towel helped break the fall. Bruising and scrapes indicate my lower back, the back of my head and my shins bore the brunt of the fall. For the life of me, I can’t remember how I fell. But my granddaughter Olive’s favorite term, “tumble bumble” suffices. My cousin, a nurse, had me lay still as she assessed the damage — which is
when I heard the admonition from the great beyond. This day is Tim and Violeta’s, not yours. I smiled and nodded in recognition of the sage advice. In short order I was bandaged and driving us all to the church. I still get a little shaky thinking what might have been. And I still think my dress was perfect, now mostly because it was three-quarters length and covered a quickly swelling left knee as well as my patched up legs. THE WEDDING was beautiful. Tim and Violeta met several years back while he was serving in the Peace Corps in El Salvador. With only two months left of his 27-month stint, they met. I can’t say I was thrilled, knowing the trials of a long-distance relationship much less the cultural differences to bridge. But they stuck it out. “I can safely say that every day away from you was a complete affirmation of how much I loved you,” Violeta said in her vows. She got Tim. “I wish to be always your support to fight for your ideals and your dreams. … I promise not to be indifferent to the pain of the world around us and to not lose sight that we can make a difference and thus, provide a better future for our children and to instill in them a spark of hope.” And Tim understands what a sacrifice Violeta is making by leaving her family, friends, and country to begin life here in the United States. “To visit El Salvador often, to have its people in our hearts, to have our future family always connected to its culture, to cultivate and share friendship between our two countries and families, I promise.” “To recognize that the best way out is always through, to see the unjust in the world and to work for the good …” “And to love you, to love you, to always love you, I promise.” SATURDAY was meant for Tim and Violeta. I know that. Sometimes, though, I just need some sense knocked into me.
Dad made family a priority Sixteen years ago my father died at 79 of a combination of things that had robbed him of vitality for several years prior. The last night we talked, he spoke in halting terms about a boy he had treated on a beachhead during the June 1944 invasion of Normandy. Dad was with a medical detachment that prepared wounded soldiers for transport back to England. The boy had suffered grave abdominal wounds. “He asked me not to let him die,” Dad recalled. “I knew he was going to.” A few minutes later, Dad lapsed into unconsciousness, never to recover. Just as the wartime incident came to his memory then, his telling me about it comes to me each Father’s Day. Dad started faring for him-
At Week’s End Bob Johnson self while a student at Iola High School, living and working at St. John’s Hospital east of Iola and often walking into town to attend classes. Consequently, he never played any sports other than army ball, as he called it, while in grade school. The only games he ever saw in person were ones I played, and later those of grandson Bob. To dad, work came first. And saving as much as possible was his mantra.
Letter to the editor
In 1991, a group called Friends of the Bowlus was formed as a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to solicit donations and contribute to the capital needs of the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. Today, with a membership of more than 200, the group has become the entity that supports the “bricks and mortar” of this beloved center through gifts of donations, matching gifts, lifetime trusts, life insurance, bequests, and pledged gifts. Our most recent projects include a new auditorium sound system, stage curtains, boiler system, the band room renovation, refurbishing the Bowlus family grand piano, and the construction of the new fountain. Many of our projects are undertaken
out of necessity, or in some instances, to keep the Bowlus out of a crisis situation. After nearly 50 years of use, many of our needs force us to buy new equipment because parts are no longer available for the old. Sometimes it is necessary to hire a professional to provide us with guidance and to oversee installation of new equipment. The Friends have nurtured many worthwhile projects that may not be as visible to the general public; some have taken place quietly and without much public recognition. But two major projects have recently been completed that require celebration and viewing by the public — the restoration of the Bowlus family piano and the Bowlus fountain in memory of Mickey Lynn and designed by
Even so, he was generous, particularly after working his way into a good-paying job at Monarch Cement. He bought me a Lionel train, a Schwinn bicycle and my first baseball glove, a first baseman’s mitt that I still have. There were times when we didn’t communicate well, in large measure I think because I had a little more liberal view of the world. But, in later years, we drew closer. He was fond of seeing my deer-hunting and trapping successes, and I think liked to brag a little on what I did. I still miss the opportunity to call Dad to tell about this, that or whatever. Which leads me to this admonition: Don’t let the hustle and bustle of today’s fast-paced living get in the way of taking time for family.
landscape architect Dan Foster, a 1983 graduate of Iola High School. A public dedication for the piano and fountain will be at 7:30 p.m. next Saturday. A recital by local pianists will begin the evening with recognition to those who gave money to this project. Dedication of the fountain will follow. Both gifts will formally be presented to the USD 257 Board of Education as trustees of the Bowlus. We as a community have much to be proud of in the Bowlus. By your attendance you will be supporting this dedication, the musicians, and honor those who have contributed so much to the revitalization of this center.

KS Legislature is fine with second-rate schools The recent outcry against the Kansas Legislature’s whack at higher education funding came too late to prevent a short-sighted and misguided assault on statesupported colleges and universities. Though Gov. Sam Brownback sought to maintain funding for higher ed, his conservative legislative majority did not fall in line on this one. Now the governor must confront cuts to higher ed that Tim Emert, chair of the Kansas Board of Regents, has called “devastating.” According to the regents’ numbers, the damage over the next two years will total $48.7 million across the 32 public institutions under its umbrella. Among budget areas to be reduced are student financial aid and salaries. Now, the governor is left scratching his head, trying to figure out how to veto the cuts without simultaneously elimi-
nating overall higher-ed funding. Ironically, Kansas lawmakers passed this budget in a year when their peers in Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Colorado and Oklahoma all increased higher-ed support. Why is Kansas the regional outlier? As usual in Kansas, the divide is not Republican vs. Democrat. This time it’s not even conservative vs. moderate. Instead, the politics of higher-ed funding breaks along a fault line separating those who value the life of the mind and recognize the economic development contributions of education from anti-intellectuals who see education as a commodity that should be produced with the fewest inputs possible. In this political environment, the governor, who is no egghead and clearly understands the universities’ links to quality of life and the state
Insight Kansas Gwen Mellinger economy, parts company with those who are in his own ideological camp on most other fiscal matters. He’s not alone among Republicans in criticizing the Legislature’s action. One of the most intriguing comments to be published following the budget vote came from Robba Moran, a regent and wife of U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan. “If you want to have outstanding universities, you have to pay for them,” she said. THAT’S THE CRUX of the problem. Those who voted to cut the regents’ budget by 6.3 percent over two years do not see outstanding universities as a desirable goal — at least not
one the state treasury should pay for. This calculation does not consider the long-term cost of deferred maintenance to university buildings or institutions’ inability to attract and retain top faculty. Nor does it take account of the burden on Kansas families when costs are shifted to household budgets in the form of tuition increases. The Legislature’s budget vote comes at a time when higher education is experiencing historic challenges. A national debate rages over the comparative value of a degree earned in a four-year window by attending classes in brickand-mortar classrooms. Institutions of higher learning are under the gun to develop online and other non-traditional programs to meet the needs of adults (and their employers) who see evenings and weekends as more appropriate times to attend classes. At the same time, the state’s
largest universities must expand the existing educational infrastructure for research and, at all institutions, increase enrollments of traditional, tuition-paying students. Even without a budgetary whammy from the Legislature, the times demand creative responses from regents institutions. Unfortunately, innovation, a process that requires trial and error, rarely happens when resources are deficient and administrators and faculty fear being accused of extravagance. Under overly restrictive budgetary conditions, it’s human nature to make decisions that are safe and cheap, not ones that create new opportunities. Even if the governor finds a way to restore funding, the Legislature has made a very public statement that support for higher education is a low priority and that university systems in other states are welcome to eclipse ours.

Indians win third game in 18 hours By RICHARD LUKEN
It wasn’t always pretty, but the Iola American Legion AA Indians kept up their winning ways Friday, amid the busiest portion of their schedule. The Indians capped a whirlwind week by winning their fifth game in four days — and third in an 18-hour stretch. Iola thumped Louisburg Friday morning in the opening round of the Allen Community College Red Devil
Classic, 10-1. That came after the Indians swept a doubleheader at Wellsville, 9-7 and 10-5. The victories keep the Indians spotless on the season at 13-0. The busy pace continues today and Sunday as Iola wraps up the tournament. The Indians take on the NLB 18’s, an academy squad from the Kansas City area. First pitch is at 12:30 p.m. at the ACC baseball diamond.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — At their best in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat have forced turnover after turnover, finding a gear the San Antonio Spurs just can’t reach. Play in Game 5 as they have during their two easy victories in the series, and LeBron James’ defending champs will head home just one win away from another title. But Miami’s best hasn’t been carrying over from game to game, not just in this series but for a while now. So it’s anybody’s guess what happens Sunday in a fi-
nals that’s dead even, though the games haven’t been. “I think Game 5 should be the best game of the series,” Dwyane Wade said. “Both teams should come out knowing each other, knowing what each other want to do, and it should be a very good game.” Not the way this series has been going. Game 1 was a thriller, neither team able to build a double-digit lead over four back-and-fourth quarters before Tony Parker’s clinchSee GAME 5 | Page B3
Humboldt Heat pick up victory A four-run first inning propelled the Humboldt Heat to an 8-2 win Friday over the NLB 17’s in the opening round of the Allen Community College Red Devil Classic. The Heat are an 18-and-under Babe Ruth League squad. The NLB 17’s is an academy squad out of Kansas City. Humboldt will continue tournament play today against the Girard American Legion at 10 o’clock at the ACC baseball diamond. Humboldt wraps up the tournament at 3 p.m. Sunday against Iola’s American Legion squad. The Heat sent 10 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first inning, taking advantage of five walks and a hit batsmen. Zack Vanatta, the number 9 hitter, had the only hit of the frame, an RBI single. Alex Murrow led off the third with a walk. He advanced on an error and scored on Caleb D’Armond’s ground ball. Murrow reached on an error to lead off the fifth. He scored on Kason Siemens’ single. Siemens came in to score on D’Armond’s sacrifice fly. Jacob Carpenter blasted a two-out triple in the sixth. He scored on Grayson Pearish’s single. Siemens had NLB in control with five hits and two walks over five innings of work. Christian Wiltse followed with two scoreless and hitless innings of relief with two walks.

isburg, scoring in all four innings it batted. Braden Larson’s tworun single in the first scored Levi Ashmore and Mason Coons before Ashmore’s bad-hop single up the middle scored two more in the second. Nathan Whitcomb got into the act in the third, with an RBI single to knock in Drew Faulhaber. The floodgates opened
in the bottom of the fourth, courtesy of three Louisburg errors and two walks. The Indians scored four without courtesy of a hit. The runs were more than plenty for starter Trent Latta and Larson in relief. Latta shut down Louisburg on three hits in his four innings of work. He walked one and struck out six. Larson pitched a scoreless
in the opener before Wellsville rallied to score six in the bottom of the fifth to tie the score and force extra innings. The game went 10 innings. Whitcomb’s leadoff double in the 10th, followed by an error by the Wellsville center fielder led to Trent Latta’s sacrifice fly to break the tie. Derrick Weir’s single two batters later drove in the second run. The rally followed a frustrating evening for the Indians. After plating seven runs in the second inning, Jarred Latta had a run-scoring single. Tyler Clubine’s single four batters later scored two more. Ashmore singled to drive in one. Trent Latta got an RBI for a bases-loaded walk, and Coons smacked a single to drive in two, capping the scoring. The runs gave the win to Whitcomb, who pitched four scoreless innings of relief, allowing only one hit with nine strikeouts. Clubine got the start, allowing six hits in 4 2/3 innings. He walked three and struck out two. Jacob Rhoads replaced Clubine on the mound,
fourth without allowing a hit. He walked two and struck out one. Offensively, Ashmore went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs. Larson had three RBIs on his two-run single and a sacrifice fly. Faulhaber, Aaron Barclay and Whitcomb each had a single. THINGS WEREN’T as smooth one night earlier in Wellsville. Iola opened a 7-1 lead

Iola AA American Legion’s Braden Larson delivers a pitch Friday in the opening round of the Allen Community College Red Devil Classic. allowing one hit in 1 1/3 innings of work. He struck out one. Ashmore, Coons, Jarred Latta, Faulhaber, Barclay and Clubine each had two singles in Iola’s 15-hit attack. Whitcomb doubled, while Weir and Larson singled once. The Indians couldn’t plate any runs in innings 3 through 9 despite putting runners in scoring position in every frame but one. Iola stranded 16 runners — 10 in scoring position. THE NIGHTCAP was a bit more efficient in the 10-5 win. The Indians scored five in the first — a bases-loaded walk by Weir drove in the first run. Trent Latta scored on an error, then Barclay’s single cleared the bases. Wellsville responded with three in the bot-
tom of the inning before Weir and Jarred Latta drove in runs with singles to give the Indians a 7-3 lead. Wellsville responded with two more to close the gap to 7-5. A walk, error and single by Drew Faulhaber led to Eric Heffern’s RBI ground ball in the top of the third. Ashmore followed with an RBI single to put Iola on top, 9-5. Coons singled to lead off the fourth and later scored on Larson’s sac fly. Faulhaber got the start, allowing three hits and three walks in two innings to get the win. He struck out one. Ashmore followed with three scoreless innings of relief, allowing one hit with six strikeouts. Weir went 2-for-2, while Ashmore, Coons, Jarred Latta, Rhoads, Barclay and Faulhaber each had singles.
H Game 5 Continued from B1
ing basket helped the Spurs pull out a 92-88 victory. The teams haven’t delivered a classic since. The Heat won by 19, lost by 36 and cruised by 16. The last few minutes of each have looked more like an October exhibition than a mid-June championship clash. “You lose a game like we did in Game 2 and we come back and beat them in Game 3 and look like they looked last night, that’s what drives me crazy, because as coaches you try to prevent that,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Friday during a conference call. Neither team practiced. “You like to be on a little bit more of an even keel and perform the same way each night, and the only thing I can tell myself after all these years is, you’re dealing with people, with emotions and not robots,” Popovich said. “They
come out and they all play hard, but there’s that little intangible, that little spark of intensity or back against the wall, or a little bit of fear that just seems to kick in when you’ve lost the previous game. And when you find teams that can get over that, those are the championship teams.” It’s the most uneven stretch of the NBA Finals since 2005, according to STATS, when San Antonio and the Detroit Pistons swapped four straight games decided by 15 or more points to open the series. Back then, the Spurs could depend on Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili to get them righted. But now Parker has a shaky hamstring, Ginobili’s confidence is even shakier, and San Antonio may need a throwback performance from Duncan in what could be his last home game in a storied finals career.

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

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers
A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves
Getty Images/JEFF ZELEVANSKY
According to geography experts, that’s the official flag of Hendrick Nation.
Jimmie Johnson again? Should we call it a season and give him the trophy? GODSPEAK: J.J. is going to have a big lead heading into the Chase, but it’s funny what a flat tire here or a bad battery there can do in the playoffs. It’s a long way to November. KEN’S CALL: If we learned anything from last year, we learned anyone can win the Chase if he or she gets in there. We also learned Brad Keselowski likes tall beer.
How does Carl Edwards stay in second place in the points standings? GODSPEAK: Cup Series points work in mysterious ways. I look at this as a sign from the stock-car gods, a good sign from the “Missouri Missile.” KEN’S CALL: These days, you’re gaining ground by simply avoiding penalty points. Boy Scouts like Carl never get penalized, right?

WHAT’S ON TAP? SPRINT CUP: Quicken Loans 400 SITE: Brooklyn, Mich. SCHEDULE: Sunday, race (TNT cable network, coverage begins at noon; green flag at 1:16 p.m.) TRACK: Michigan International Speedway (2-mile oval) RACE DISTANCE: 200 laps, 400 miles
HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ
Only one way out Things have gotten messy at JTG Daugherty Racing. The team has yanked driver Bobby Labonte from the seat this week at Michigan and hired AJ Allmendinger to wheel the car for five races. The team said, “The move is being made by the single-car operation to help refine the direction for the team’s development of the Gen-6 Camrys.” “The move” likely means the beginning of the end of Labonte’s stock-car driving career, which includes the 2000 Cup Series championship while driving for Joe Gibbs Racing.
“I talked to him a lot when we were here testing on Wednesday,” Chase said. “He wasn’t actually at the track, but I spent quite a bit of time talking to him on the phone. He definitely gave me some good advice about this place.” Bill Elliott said he watched the race unfold on the top of the truck. “It’s a dream come true for me,” he said. “He’s done a good job in everything he’s raced in.” As for the Burtons, Ward was spotting for Jeb at Texas and instructed his son to do as many victory burnouts as he wanted. Jeb led the last 25 laps of the race. Tony Stewart said he nearly crashed his No. 14 Chevy twice in practice at Pocono because of “weepers” or tiny cracks in the track surface that ooze water from the ground below. “You hit them and it’s worse than I remember them being as far as how it makes the car jump around,” Stewart said. “It’s like ice. It jumps the car around. You don’t see it. The hard part is you hit it and it makes the car jump out from underneath you. So, it’s a pretty hairy moment.”
It was a good weekend to be the son of a former Daytona 500 winner. Chase Elliott, 17-yearold son of two-time 500 winner Bill Elliott, won the ARCA race at Pocono Raceway, while Jeb Burton, 20-yearold son of 2002 Daytona 500 winner Ward Burton, won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. It’s a sign that NASCAR is gearing up for its next generation of family drivers, like when Lee Petty handed off to son Richard Petty, or countless other father-son driver combinations through the years. Richard Petty has always said racing is just a part of the family-business culture. “If my daddy had been a farmer, I’m guessing that’s what I would have done,” Petty has said in the past. Not only do these kid drivers have connections in the sport, but they get the years of experience inherent with a family-owned operation. Chase sought counsel from his father.
Would Jimmie really skip a race?
Only if the miracles of modern medicine decided to take a vacation first. After his Pocono win, Jimmie Johnson suggested he had permission to skip a pre-Chase event if his second child – due in mid-September – jumps the green flag and debuts early. Such talk makes them swoon on “The View” and in Oprah’s world, but don’t bet on it happening. Such things supposedly aren’t guaranteed, but 21st-century obstetrics has made it possible to keep NASCAR babies from weekend coming-out parties. Either that, or it’s been one heckuva long-running coincidence.
And now it’s affecting marriages?
Jeepers creepers, weepers!
Here comes the sons and it’s all right

If his daughter did this during a race, the others might have a chance.
Kinda. It’s one thing to make sure babies aren’t born late in the week. There’s still some gamble involved. But a wedding is easier, and Trevor Bayne must be quite a catch, because he convinced new bride Ashton to get married last TUESDAY! And what’s more, he talked her into honeymooning in Newton, Iowa.
Why would she agree to Newton?
First, if you’re honeymooning to see the sites, I smell trouble. As for Newton, one of two reasons, we’re guessing. It could’ve been the chance to view the Newton Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, or perhaps visit Iowa Speedway, where Trevor not only worked through the honeymoon, but actually won his first Nationwide Series race in two years. While the arboretum is surely very nice, though we’re not sure what it is, we’re thinking the speedway was Newton’s clincher as a honeymoon destination.

GODWIN’S MICHIGAN PICKS Godwin Kelly is the Daytona Beach News-Journal’s motorsports editor and has covered NASCAR for 30 years. Reach him at godwin. firstname.lastname@example.org
WINNER: Greg Biffle REST OF THE TOP FIVE: Kurt Busch, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer, Juan Pablo Montoya DARK HORSE: Aric Almirola FIRST ONE OUT: Travis Kvapil
BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT: Kyle Busch DON’T BE SURPRISED IF: Ford drivers lead more laps than any other carmaker. Ford considers Michigan its home track.
Bobby Labonte vs. AJ Allmendinger: Allmendinger will drive Labonte’s No. 47 Toyota at Michigan as the team tries to get better. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “They say this is just ‘business’ when AJ takes the wheel at Michigan, but Bobby is feeling the sting.”
