Tuesday’s hospital board meeting began on a happy note. Dr. Earl and Linda Walter gave a gift to the new Allen County Regional Hospital. In recognition, the Walters will have patient room 115-116 designated in their names. The extra big room sits right across from the nursing station. With their breakaway from Hospital Corporation of America effective Monday, trustees signed with the Kansas Hospital Association workers’ compensation employment program. When under HCA’s umbrella, hospital employees received workers’comp in-house. At one time, such services were provided by the state, said Ron Baker, hospital chief executive officer. “But the nature of our jobs — the lifting and transfer of patients — makes us expensive to insure,” Baker said. “Hospital and nursing home employees typically suffer a lot of work-related injuries.” All of the hospital’s 150-160 employees will be covered. A neurosurgeon, Dr. Harold Hess, has begun seeing patients in the medical arts building, and an oncologist, Dr. Cinderella Chavez, will begin office hours in July, Baker said.

SAFE BASE kids take train through mountains By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

The third day of SAFE BASE’s excursion to Colorado was one of transition — by way of road and rail. The students had time to sleep in and then enjoy the morning of their final day in Rocky Mountain National Park. Their journey thus far had taken them from Iola to the rivers of alpine basins, to ridges scraping the skyline

of the Rocky Mountains. “And it’s only going to get better,” SAFE BASE student Sam Terhune said. Several of the students filed their way over to the ranger station in Moraine campground, where they took their final step in the junior park ranger program — being sworn in. “Ranger Katie,” as the students referred to her, had them raise their right hands and repeat the ju-

nior ranger oath: “As a junior ranger, I promise to help protect Rocky Mountain National Park, my neighborhood parks and all other natural areas by taking care of the environment. I will help keep wildlife wild by not feeding animals. I will help protect plants by not picking them. I will help keep parks beautiful by placing trash in recycling bins or trash bins. I will enjoy nature

safely and be a good example to others.” The students’ eyes lit up as Ranger Katie passed out their badges. They may have been plastic in actuality, but to the students they were gold. The next leg of the journey took the group south and west, through the heart of the mountains. After stopping at a park in in the quaint riverside community See TRAIN | Page A6

Muralist Jim Stukey paints on Sophisticated Rose’s south wall Tuesday morning. The Burlington artist has created murals for about 20 years.

Murals bring character to community By KAYLA BANZET

With a paint brush in hand muralist Jim Stukey takes a step back from his work on the south wall of Sophisticated Rose’s building Tuesday. A motorist honks and waves at the artist and he returns the gesture. Stukey has been drawing and painting all of his life and has been a muralist for about 20 years now. He is well known for his mural work across Coffey County. Tuesday, Stukey was “sprucing up” spots on the downtown merchant’s building. He has painted small and large projects in the past. There are multiple blank canvases around Iola that can

tell a story. Ron Moore, owner of Iola Office Supply, has one of those canvases. Moore said he has been approached about putting a mural on his south wall in the past. “Years ago I was approached about putting a historical mural on my wall,” Moore said. “I’m OK with the idea as long as it can be funded.” The wall is north of the Funston home in the Allen County Historical Society’s complex on the west side of the square. The idea for the mural fell through the cracks years ago, Moore said, partly because of the insistence the building’s rough exterior be made smooth at Moore’s expense. Stukey, however, said the convoluted exterior is perfect for a mural. Vol. 115, No.171

Stukey said he has done murals that have been funded multiple ways. “I have done murals through private funders and through a county’s contributions,” he said. Elyssa Jackson, the historical society’s director, said she hasn’t been contacted by anyone about a mural near the Funston home but could see the Society approving the idea. “I could see the possibility of it happening,” Jackson said. “We would be more than happy to entertain the idea if it was a reasonable idea and had a sound budget.” The type of paint used for a mural depends on its canvas, Stukey said. Metal and steel buildings, for example, use a different kind of paint than a

Numbers flew every which way in an Allen County Commission meeting Tuesday morning. All were part and parcel to the commissioners putting together the county’s 2014 budget. One set of numbers may lead to attraction of professionals and former Kansans who have lived away from the state at least five years. Larry Tucker, Humboldt administrator, and Barbara Anderson, employee of the Kansas Department of Commerce (DOC), proposed commissioners provide financial incentives for college graduates to return. A program the Kansas Department of Commerce will unveil in detail by July 1 would repay up to $15,000 of college loans to students who locate in the county and

stayed at least five years. The state DOC will match up to $1,500 a county provides — a total of $3,000 — each year for up to five years to repay student loans. The county also may be a conduit for a business — such as a hospital seeking trained personnel — or an industry that puts up money and then has latitude to choose the recipient. “I’ve talked to our industries in Humboldt, and they need engineers,” Tucker said. “It’s a program to bring people back or get new ones to move here,” said Anderson. Another program, already in place and also under auspices of the Department of Commerce, encourages former residents to return, by forgiving income taxes for See COUNTY | Page A5

A painter doesn’t necessarily have to construct a potential mural. Organizations like the Girl Scouts, 4-H or high school and college students looking for a community

service project could propose and execute a mural idea. Iola has many opportunities to display its history through art. The first step is to simply put an idea out there.

Introducing Belinda Garten, DVM

Hello! My name is Belinda Garten and I am a new face at Red Barn Veterinary Service. I am a veterinarian that was raised on a farm in Nebraska, and although I enjoy working with large animals, most of my time is spent on small animals. With summer upon us, I felt it was time to cover a few common topics. We have seen a lot of fleas already, and we know that getting rid of them can be frustrating. It is important to treat all pets in the household for the best control. Consistency is also important. One treatment may get rid of the fleas that you see on your pet, but it can take months to kill every stage of the life cycle and prevent future flea generations. You may even need to treat the carpet, yard, and bedding depending on your pet’s lifestyle. We offer tablets and topicals for cats and dogs that must be given every 30 days in order to get rid of the fleas and prevent future infestations. The cool, damp weather we have had, ticks have also become a problem. Because they feed on your pet’s blood, they can transmit several diseases with very subtle symptoms. We have no pills that control ticks, but do have topicals, that when used every 30 days, should kill existing ticks and repel those that are wanting to make a meal out of your pet. Treated properly, the ticks on the pet will die, but sometimes won’t fall off, so check before assuming that the product hasn’t worked. Ticks have very complicated life cycles, so we understand that they can be tough to get rid of. Finally, we don’t see them on your pet, but we know that heart worms can cause big problems. They are worms that live in the vessels around the heart and are transmitted by mosquitoes. Many people believe that since they are carried by mosquitoes we only worry about them in the summer; however, we recommend year-round prevention because those pesky insects can survive a mild winter. Prevention for heart worms can be in the form of tablets or topicals. Either way, be sure to give them every 30 days. We offer a tablet that combines heart worm prevention with flea control, that works really well for most of our clients. If you are wanting to start your pet on heart worm prevention, just let us know. Sometimes we have to do a test to ensure that heart worms aren’t already present, but it only takes a drop of blood and a few minutes before we know that we can start your pet on heart worm prevention. We have several brands and products available for flea, tick, and heart worm control, and we would be happy to discuss which options would be best for your situation. I am happy to be on the staff here at Red Barn Veterinary Service, and I look forward to meeting more friendly people and their pets from Iola and the surrounding area! Consult the veterinarians at


for more information regarding flea, tick & heart worm control.


Financial Focus Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Let Investments Take a Vacation At long last, summer is almost here â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which may mean itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to put together your traveling plans. Still, while you and your family may enjoy going a summertime trip, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one part of your life that should not go on vacation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your investment portfolio. So, what can you do to help your investments keep on working all year long, year in and year out? Here are a few suggestions: â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t chase after â&#x20AC;&#x153;hotâ&#x20AC;? investments. Many times, you will hear about a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hotâ&#x20AC;? investment, usually a stock. However, by the time you hear about such an investment, it may already be cooling off. Even more importantly, it might not have been appropriate for your needs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and any investment that has either â&#x20AC;&#x153;flamed outâ&#x20AC;? or wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right for you in the first place will not be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hard workerâ&#x20AC;? in your portfolio. â&#x20AC;˘ Monitor â&#x20AC;&#x153;lazyâ&#x20AC;? investments. Under the right circumstances, just about any investment could be of value to you. However, under different scenarios, those same investments may not be doing as much for you. To cite one example, when interest rates are at historic lows, as has been the case recently, and your portfolio contains a relatively large amount of short-term fixed-rate vehicles whose interest payments donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even keep up with inflation, they could be considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;lazyâ&#x20AC;? investments. â&#x20AC;˘ Look for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;multi-taskers.â&#x20AC;? In most aspects of life, â&#x20AC;&#x153;multi-taskersâ&#x20AC;? are valuable â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same in the investment world. Can you find a particular type of investment that may be able to achieve multiple goals at the same time? Consider dividend-paying stocks. If you need the income to supplement your cash flow, you can cash the dividend checks. And since some companies tend to increase their dividends, your investment in these stocks can serve as a source of potential for rising income, helping keep you ahead of inflation. Furthermore, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually need the dividends to support your income stream, you can reinvest them to increase your ownership stake â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a method of building your overall wealth. Finally, many dividend-paying stocks also offer significant growth potential. Keep in mind, though, that there are no guarantees, because companies can lower or discontinue their dividends at any time. And, as you know, stocks are subject to market risk, including the potential loss of principal invested. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take a â&#x20AC;&#x153;time outâ&#x20AC;? from investing. The financial markets regularly move up and down. During the down times, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important not to get so discouraged that you decide to take a â&#x20AC;&#x153;time outâ&#x20AC;? from investing until â&#x20AC;&#x153;things get better.â&#x20AC;? No one can really predict when a downturn will end, but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be on the investment sidelines when the market turns around â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because the biggest gains can occur in the early stages of a rally. And in any case, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not constantly investing, or at least exploring new investment opportunities, your portfolio could begin to stagnate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or even become â&#x20AC;&#x153;unbalanced,â&#x20AC;? in which case it may no longer fit your objectives or your risk tolerance. By following the above suggestions, you can help keep your investments working for you this summer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as well as fall, winter and spring. The road toward achieving your financial goals is a long one â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so try to keep moving.

‘We can move mountains’ — for disabled By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

There is a network of support in Allen County — and as the Mothers of Miracles (MOMs) group and Kiwanis found recently — sometimes it just needs to be found. On Thursday, Iola Kiwanis were awarded the “Make a Difference Through Play” grant through Kiwanis International. The grant provides $25,000 for playground equipment specifically made for special needs children. They partnered with the MOMs group to acquire the grant, beating out more than 150 Kiwanis groups internationally. They plan to use the funds as a stepping stone toward a goal of $100,000 to build disabled-access playground equipment for area youth. Monday evening Iola city council voted to make an additional $25,000 available. The award came after a hard-pushed voting campaign from the

groups, via the Kiwanis website and Facebook. “You can really get worldwide,” MOMs member LeAnn Church said during an interview Friday. THE FIRST step in the process came during an Iola City Council meeting where the MOMs group requested permission to use Riverside Park for their Stroll ‘N Roll event, which made an impression on Mike Ford of the Iola Police

getters were selected to be examined by a panel. Ford was notified that they were selected for the top 15 last week. They conducted a 30-minute phone interview with a Kiwanis International representative on Friday. They were then notified they had made it to the top 10. The pressure was on. “We knew we could bring people together to rally around us,” Nancy Ford said. Mike was told he

Department. He went to his Kiwanis group, urging them to look at the disabled children in Allen County as an avenue for aid. Then, Kiwanis President Shandie Wrench found the grant application. They met with the MOMs for two hours at Allen Community College to get the application filled. “Once you think about it, that’s $12,500 per hour. That not too bad,” Ford said with a laugh. Once the application was sent off, it was down to the votes. Out of the 150 Kiwanis groups that applied, the top 15 vote-

would either receive an email (if they weren’t selected) or a phone call (if they were selected). His phone rang early June 16. “I was pretty sure we had it then,” Mike said. “It just shows how tight-knit small communities are,” MOMs member Amy Welch said. Allen County gathered more votes than many large counties, including Florida’s Miami-Dade County, a population of almost 2.5 million. Leslie Skahan, another MOMs representative, said they were amazed at the response. “It was exciting, we

From left, members from Mother of Miracles and Iola Kiwanis meeting at Iola City Hall Friday morning were Shandie Wrench, Tara Nicholas, Berkley Kerr, Leslie Skahan, Mike Ford, Nancy Ford, Amy Welch and LeAnn Church. They were awarded $25,000 for disabled-access playground equipment in Iola from Kiwanis International and Landscape Structures, Inc. were doing something, but I couldn’t help but think, ‘did we really stand a chance?’” Skahan said. “We can move mountains.” Nancy Ford said she is “pretty sure” her cousins in Norway were voting, their Facebook comments were in Norwegian so she couldn’t give a definite answer. There were votes turned in from across the nation, including Ohio, Illinois and Florida. Representatives from both groups said people in the community would approach them and tell them they had started gathering votes. WHILE $25,000 may not go as far as it once did, Kiwanis and MOMs think it will be the spark for change in the community playgrounds. Kiwanis International has provided a corporate communications professional who will help

to coordinate matched funds from large corporations. The local American Woodsmen chapter has dedicated $2,500 to the cause, and Kiwanis is pitching in $1,500. They hope the city of Iola will dedicate some of their budgeted funds for playground equipment to disabled-access equipment. “I think we can get the money no matter what,” Welch said with confidence. Berkley Kerr, superintendent of parks in Iola, said much of the equipment needs updating and has been around the community for decades. “Some of the equipment I was playing on when I was a kid,” Kerr said. He said he will use advice from the MOMs group to plan out the playground. Under grant stipulations, construction must be ready to start by Kiwanis One Day, the first

weekend in April, 2014. More funds must be gathered to make any sort of impact on a disabled-access playground. A single disabled swing can cost up to $600, not including installation and foundation. Disabled children need a chance to live a normal life, even in such a small aspect as a playground, said Skahan “You see that separation, and it shouldn’t be there,” Skahan said. While disabled-access equipment may be more expensive, it is not exclusive, Mike Ford said. It will give children, disabled or not, a chance to swing, slide or twirl sideby-side in community playgrounds.

The Iola Register

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Guarding against Iola having a bad ‘side of the tracks’ Drive around any block on the south side of Iola, and most likely it will contain a structure in dire need of repair. In a report to Iola commissioners Monday night, Shonda Jefferis, Iola code officer, said 153 structures — houses, sheds and garages — were qualified to be demolished. The city can’t come close to addressing the issue. It has budgeted $16,000 a year to tear down dilapidated structures. That’s enough to take care of three, maybe four, houses. Even if the budget were double, it doesn’t solve the problem of the slow decline of certain neighborhoods. A parcel here, a parcel there, does not address revitalization of a neighborhood. Many of the current houses in need of repair are on 50-foot lots. Today’s zoning is 75 feet. A lot with a nice-sized yard is typically 100 feet wide. So for starters, at least two adjoining lots in an old section of town would be needed to provide the site for an average-priced home. That’s good north of Madison Avenue, where the houses are of predominately good stock. But in the south part of town, it wouldn’t pay for a developer to buy two lots because the new house typically would be of a much higher value than its neighboring properties. TWO IDEAS could help change the picture. First would be to make it easier to free up abandoned properties. Currently, properties behind by at least three years on their property taxes can be auctioned off at a sheriff ’s sale. Trouble is, there’s a lot of legal hoops to jump through to get to that point. The process is cumbersome and expensive, says Sharon Utley, county treasurer, requiring inspections by abstractors, a history of any possible legal action or liens, filings in District Court, and publications in the newspaper. On today’s rolls there are 36 properties across the county that could be sold at a sheriff ’s auction. It’s been since 2009 that Allen County has held such a sale; and it only touches the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Communities across the county are saddled with long-term responsibilities of a property’s maintenance at taxpayers’ ex-

pense. Code Officer Jefferis knows of a property the city currently maintains whose taxes were last paid in 1998. With no risk of losing the property, and a growing debt to city and county coffers for maintaining the property, there’s no incentive for the owner to claim responsibility. Nor is there an incentive from the buyer’s side, because the “taxes follow the land, not the individual,” said Utley. So even if the current owner decides to unload the property at “a bargain,” county law demands its taxes and other fees such as lawn maintenance and unpaid utilities, also be paid up by the buyer. The only exception is at a sheriff ’s sale where those fees can be waived. MOBILE, ALA., bucked this system. Rather than investing city money for a property’s upkeep, the city acquires abandoned property titles from the state by way of its Quiet Title Act passed in 2010. Clear title in hand, the city then sells the property at a steep discount with all taxes and fees waived. The bet is that developed property will bring more to city and county coffers than trying to recoup back taxes and other fees. The strategy has spurred private investors to buy the cheap land. STEP TWO would include a broader vision of what will appeal to area developers. What works in a city, may not work in a rural community such as Iola. Some areas of south Iola, for example, would best be addressed as entire neighborhoods, not block by block. Fort Leavenworth’s neighborhoods are a good example. Wide streets are lined with two-story homes whose back yards face a communal park. Big picture, I know. And it would only fit specific areas that lend themselves to a complete overhaul by way of a neighborhood revitalization plan. The alternative, however, is a growing list of abandoned properties that continue to pull down the value of their neighbors. As with Mobile, Ala., we must use some creativity coupled with a vision that will make all of Iola an attractive place to live. — Susan Lynn

Alookbackintime  30 Years Ago Week of June 23, 1983

Research Management Group of Kansas City, which leases Allen County Hospital, has proposed building a new 55-bed hospital on the present site in a series of four steps. The multi-million dollar project would be financed with revenue bonds, it was stipulated. As new buildings were completed, the portions of the present hospital which they replace would be demolished. The presentation was made to the county commis-

sion for its approval. Commissioner Bob Huskey said the commission would study the proposal and let RMG know its decision soon. ***** The renovated bandstand in the courthouse square will be dedicated during the Iola City Band’s concert Thursday evening. The renovation was a project of the Iola Lions Club. At 8 p.m. the band, directed by T. D. Wheat, will play old-time music. The lyrics will be printed and handed out for group singing.

Decouple farm aid from food stamps It looks like the only way to get a farm bill passed out of Congress would be to separate it from the more controversial food stamp legislation. And logically, the two should be considered separately anyway. The farm bill stalled last week in the House, where a five-year, half-trillion-dollar measure didn’t get enough votes from Democrats and conservative Republicans — the former who didn’t like new requirements for food stamp recipients and the latter who didn’t think cuts to food stamps were enough. The bill would have cut about $4 billion annually overall, including 3 percent in the almost $80 billion-a-year food stamp program. The Senate had passed a version of the farm bill the week prior, with about $2.4 billion a year in overall savings and a $400 million annual decrease to food stamps, which was just one-fifth of the House bill’s food stamp cuts. Clearly, the more conservative House is not going to support a farm bill that

doesn’t significantly slash the burgeoning food stamp program. The two Kansas congressmen — Mike Pompeo of Wichita and Tim Huelskamp of Hutchinson, who voted against the bill — are evidence of that.

But the country also needs a new farm bill, one that does away with direct payments to farmers in favor of crop insurance to mitigate risk against our farmers. Foods stamps and the farm bill got coupled so that urban

Clearly, the more conservative House is not going to support a farm bill that doesn’t significantly slash the burgeoning food stamp program.

“I could not vote for a bill that locks in the massive expansion of the food stamp program and spends nearly 80 cents of every dollar on food stamps,” Huelskamp said. “Food stamp spending has nearly tripled since 2002.” Clearly, the food stamp program needs reform. Maybe means testing needs to be more stringent, and maybe it needs to be more restricted in the types of foods for which food stamps may be used. The program also reportedly is rife with fraud.

members of Congress would support agriculture subsidies. But that marriage doesn’t seem to be working anymore. It was the downfall of the legislation in the House last week. Given how large the food stamp program has become, it doesn’t make much sense to call this a farm bill anymore. And really the two are not terribly relevant. House leadership ought to decouple these programs, work legislation separately and see what results. — The Hutchinson News

Underage drinking a bane Finney County must get tough on offenders

mitted diseases, crime and suicides.

A check of local businesses offering alcohol for sale ended on a sour note. The sting operation conducted by Garden City police in cooperation with the Kansas Division of Alcohol Beverage Control saw people at 18 local restaurants, stores and other places cited for allegedly furnishing alcohol to minors. The number of citations surprised even law enforcement officials, and provided a sobering look at how easy it could be for local minors to buy booze. Underage drinking has been a problem for some time in Finney County. So, it was encouraging a few years back when the county landed a nearly $1 million federal grant designed to see law enforcement, educators, parents, churches, substance abuse prevention agencies and others work together on the problem. The Finney County Community Health Coalition set out on a plan to bolster existing efforts and create new ways to teach life skills and discourage youngsters from using alcohol. Research shows youngsters who consume alcohol before the age of 15 are far more likely to have alcohol-related problems throughout life. Immediate issues could range from poor performance in school to more serious outcomes in traffic crashes, teen pregnancies, sexually-trans-

The programs are part of the Kansas Rural Opportunity Zone, which embraces all but a handful of the state’s 105 counties. Allen County already is enrolled in the income tax forgiveness program; commissioners will decide whether to sign on to the student loan payment program. Tucker is enthusiastic about the possibilities of both, the student loan portion in particular. Putting up matchmoney for the student incentive “isn’t an expense to the county,” Tucker said. “It’s an investment.” DEPARTMENT heads generally asked for modest increases in their budgets as they traipsed before commissioners, and also gave brief commentaries about what functions their staffs carry out.

er counties for funding made requests. Tim Cunningham, Tri-Valley Development Services, asked for a $5,000 increase to $65,000 in 2014. Cunningham lamented state cuts had taken a toll on Tri-Valley, and not just this year. He recalled that 14 years ago the agency had 255 employees, 175 when he became its director seven years ago and with a reduction of six positions this year now has 142. Client numbers, currently at 208, have remained fairly static in recent years, he said, and that a waiting list exists for services for the developmentally disable. “Some of the clients we have could use more services than we’re able to give with the staff we have,” Cunningham said. Iola has a service center, 10 W. Jackson Ave., that “is packed with clients,” Cunningham said. They perform contract work for area businesses and industries. Becky Gray, representing Southeast Kansas Community Action Program, noted it received no financial support from Allen County and

expected none for 2014. However, Gray did ask that commissioners assist through supporting letters whenever the group sought grants or put together initiatives to help the needy. SEK-CAP’s funding comes from the federal government, and has seen it cut by $100,000 to $200,000 in recent years. Part of that, she added, was federal emphasis to shift funding from eastern to western Kansas, where community action programs haven’t had as much of a presence. Non-federal grant proceeds may become more of a component of SEKCAP’s funding, Gray added. SEK-CAP operates a pre-school in Iola and “we hope we can remain helpful here,” she said, through economic development. Bob Chase, director of Southeast Kansas Mental Health Center, asked commissioners to provide funding of $113,600 for its 2014 budget. This year Allen County contributed $110,300. In 2012, the county provided $105,941. Chase said changes had occurred for the

Theo Minor, a junior at Iola High School, recently was elected to the Board of Governors of the Kansas Numismatic Association. He will serve a fouryear term on the statewide organization, which meets three times a year and promotes knowledge in coin col-

mental health group, and others were expected in 2014. Kansas switched to private management of Medicaid through KanCare on Jan. 1, which led to “issues with changing demands from the managed care organizations for authorizing services,” Chase said, as well as payment issues. “These were not unexpected but dealing with three sets of authorization processes and reimbursement problems has caused additional stress for all involved.” A new mental health care initiative starts Monday, and even with the start just days away “details are still being developed,” Chase said. “We expect to receive the same amount of state funding, but how we use it will change.” He noted the center’s case load in Allen County had remained relatively steady the past six years, teetering to just above 1,000 people a year. All but a handful of the mental health group’s nearly 4,000 patients come from six counties, mainly Allen and Neosho, along with Anderson, Bourbon, Linn and Woodson.

Next up is to separate the hot water system between the two buildings, Baker said. The medical arts building will remain open for visiting specialists. Negotiations are all but complete with Via Christi of Wichita to have Dr. Wes Stone and his staff at Preferred Medical Associates to join the hospital’s staff. Stone’s partner, Dr. Earl Walter, has announced his retirement. The hospital will lease their current building on South Washington Avenue.

town, the buses then pulled into Silver Plume to ride the historic Georgetown Loop Railroad. “It was really cool, I had never been on a train before,” students Sara Barbarick and Kaitlyn Smutz said in agreement. The puffs of black smoke caught the students’ attention as the engine pulled around the bend. The conductor yelled “All aboard!” much to the satisfaction of the kids. “I knew he’d say it,” one student called out. They filed onto the train and the engine let out a long whistle. The large iron wheels began to turn and the train wound along down the tracks with students peering over the side, along the valley of Clear Creek. The water level was four feet above normal, due to snow melt, which led to some spectacular views of rapids. From Georgetown, the buses drove southwest to the campground outside of Leadville. The highest city in America, Leadville is perched at 10,152 feet above sea level. The campground is nestled in an outcropping of pines, in a large meadow carved out by the Arkansas River. The students then enjoyed a meal catered by friends of Angela Henry, SAFE BASE director.

Chase Vaughn, a senior at the University of Kansas, has been working at SAFE BASE on and off since high school, and has worked at the last two summer programs. “Compared to Wichita and Hannibal, it is going a lot smoother,” he said of the students’ progress. Midweek, the group had become nearexperts at camp cooking and setting up tents. Kelsey Larson, a sophomore at Independence Community College, said she has been enjoying the sights and experiences nearly as much as the students. “At first, I thought the activities were only going to be for the kids,” she said. “But I’ve actually enjoyed them too.” She and her group, Barbarick, Smultz and Sidney Shelby, have grown close over the past few days. They sat together on the bench of the picnic table in the campground. They had written their leader a letter, showing their appreciation for her hard work and efforts. “It’s the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me, seriously,” Larson said. “I actually teared up a little bit.” She said she hopes to continue her studies in elementary education, and hopes her experience with SAFE BASE will only help her progress.

The Tabor Opera House (which the students will tour today) has been a focal point in their family’s, especially Angela’s, life over the past decade. They have been active in the restoration of the old theater.

As Bob and I drove into town, he told me stories of William Allen White and Frederick Funston taking excursions down to their cabins in RMNP as well. I was gripped by the ties southeast Kansas has to such a remote area. It made me realize that while Kansas does not have mountains and valleys on display, we have our people on display in Colorado. People like Frederick Funston, William Allen White and Emerson Lynn spent their time reflecting, relaxing and escaping in the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and I believe Colorado is a better place for it. Over the past few days, our youngest Kansans have made their footprint as well. Angela Henry, along with her staff, have done nothing but succeed over the first half of the trip, and have already changed the lives of their 68 students.

Victory stays just out of Royals’ grasp By BOB DUTTON The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, MO. (MCT) — Royals reliever Tim Collins hadn’t allowed a homer, period, since last Sept. 14 when he entered a tie game Tuesday night in the seventh inning. The last time he served up one, if ever, to a left-handed hitter on an 0-2 pitch is the sort of thing that stirs the folks at Elias into serious action. (No answer yet.) You see where this is going? Yes, he did. Jason Heyward jumped that pitch, a hanging curve, and the result was a homer that sent the Royals to a 4-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves, who had never before played at Kauffman Stadium. “In that situation,” Collins said, “you don’t want to give him anything to hit. The only thing he could hit is something over the plate. “He stays on the curveball, up and over the plate, pretty good. You want to stay away from it.” There was more — — and it was even tougher for Royals to swallow. They put runners at first and third with no outs in the

off batter in a one-run ballgame, you put yourself in a sticky situation. We were able to work out of it.” Kimbrel struck out two hitters, Elliot Johnson and Jar-

rod Dyson, before issuing an intentional walk to Alex Gordon after falling into a 2-0 hole. Kimbrel then ended the game by retiring Alcides Escobar on a fly to right.

“You’ve got to put the ball in play in that situation (with Johnson and Dyson),” manager Ned Yost said, “to give yourself a chance. But we couldn’t do it.” Heyward’s homer broke a 3-3 tie and was the first yielded by Collins, 2-2, in 37 outings. “I was just looking for a pitch in the zone to hit and trying not to miss it,” Heyward said. “I put a good swing on it. I wasn’t trying to hit a homer. I was just trying to hit it hard.” Earlier, Heyward had a tworun double in a three-run fifth against Royals starter Ervin Santana, which staked that Braves to a 3-1 lead. Atlanta starter Kris Medlen, rearmed with the lead after Heyward’s homer, struck out the side in the bottom of the seventh inning. “You can’t give away two leads,” Medlin said. “For JHey to come up and hit that ball, I knew I needed to have a nail-down inning.” Medlen, 5-7, got the victory when Jordan Walden and Kimbrel wobbled through the final two innings. Kimbrel got his 22nd save in 25 chances. See ROYALS | Page B2

More stars knocked out at Wimbledon By STEPHEN WILSON AP Sports Writer

LONDON (AP) — Injuries knocked three key players out of Wimbledon today — second-seeded Victoria Azarenka, the man who stunned Rafael Nadal in the first round and the American man who won the longest match in tennis history. The start of Day 3 of the grass-court Grand Slam was less about the tennis results and more about a casualty list that included Azarenka, Steve Darcis and John Isner. Also withdrawing with injuries were 10th-seeded Marin Cilic (left knee) and 2006 quarterfinalist Radek Stepanek (left hamstring).

The tournament also lost a former champion, 2002 winner Lleyton Hewitt, but he managed to play a match. The Australian was ousted by 189th-ranked German qualifier Dustin Brown, 6-4, 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-2. The dreadlocked Brown, who switched nationality from Jamaican to German in 2010, was in tears after beating the former No. 1-ranked player. Brown has played mainly on the lower-tier challenger circuit in 2013 and had never won a match at Wimbledon until this year. Azarenka, the two-time Australian Open champion, See WIMBLEDON | Page B3

Patriots’ Hernandez arrested By MICHELLE R. SMITH Associated Press

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was taken from his home in handcuffs this morning, more than a week after a Boston semi-pro football player was found dead in an industrial park a mile from Hernandez’s house. Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player for the Boston Bandits, was found slain June 17. Officials ruled the death a homicide but did not say how Lloyd died. Lloyd’s relatives said he was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee, that the two men were friends and that both men were out together on the last night of Lloyd’s life.

It’s unclear why Hernandez was being taken into custody today before 9 a.m. and put into the back of a police cruiser. He was wearing a white V-neck T-shirt, with his arms inside the shirt and behind his back as he was led from his North Attleborough home. He casually spit into some bushes on his way to the car. Hernandez was arrested on a state police warrant and was being booked at the North Attleborough police station, state police said on the agency’s Twitter account. State police said they won’t discuss the charge against Hernandez until it’s presented in Attleboro District Court later today. The Associated Press emailed a message to his at-

Even a ground ball gets the guy in. “Even if it’s a double play. That’s what I was going for, first pitch, and it was way out of the zone. I rolled the dice. I went first-pitch fastball. — Kansas City’s Elliott Johnson on his inability to drive in a crucial ninth-inning run in a loss to Atlanta.

The Royals also got the tying run to third in the the eighth after Walden started the inning by walking Escobar, who went to second on a wild pick-off throw with one out. Walden rallied by striking out Billy Butler on a nasty 1-2 slider. Escobar swiped third without a throw, but Walden retired Salvy Perez on a routine fly to right. The Royals quickly put Kimbrel in a hole when Mike Moustakas battled back from a 1-2 hole for a leadoff walk. David Lough followed with a single to right that moved Moustakas to third. Kimbel struck out Johnson on three pitches. “Even a ground ball gets the guy in,” Johnson said. “Even if it’s a double play. That’s what I was going for, first pitch, and it was way out of the zone. I rolled the dice. I went first-pitch fastball.” It was a breaking ball in the dirt, and Johnson never recovered. Lough stole second, which put the winning run in scoring position with one out, but Kimbrel shrugged it off by freezing Dyson on a wicked breaking ball for a called third strike.

I couldn’t do anything with it.” Kimbrel walked Gordon before retiring Escobar on a fly to right. It meant another dis-

ing a sacrifice bunt before pulling a single through the left side. Jordan Shafer followed by yanking an RBI double past first, which put runners at second and third with no outs. Heyward then served a two-run double into right that gave Atlanta a 3-1 lead.

The Royals responded immediately and did so in a manner that is out-of-character but immensely encouraging. Escobar pulled a twoout single to left, and Eric Hosmer followed with a 404-foot drive to right for a two-run homer. Santana worked a brisk sixth inning before exiting, breaking a streak of seven straight starts of at least seven innings. He gave up three runs and six hits while throwing 102 pitches. In came Collins and... yep. Heyward. On an 0-2 hanger. “Right pitch, bad location,” Collins said. “That’s the pitch I wanted to throw. I just didn’t want to throw it in that location.”

A message also was left with the Bristol County district attorney’s office. Lloyd’s mother, Ursula Ward, declined to comment at her Boston home this morning. “Nothing to say, please. Thank you,” she said, before shutting the door. A Patriots team spokesman said Monday morning that the team had no comment. State police have searched in and around Hernandez’s sprawling home in North Attleborough several times. At least three search warrants have been issued in connection with the investigation.

Reporters have been camped for days outside the home on the Rhode Island line, not far from the stadium where the Patriots play. They reported Tuesday that Hernandez got a visit from Boston defense attorney James Sultan. The Patriots drafted Hernandez, who is originally from Bristol, Conn., out of the University of Florida in 2010. Last summer, the team gave him a five-year contract worth $40 million. Patriots spokesman Stacey James has said the team did not anticipate commenting publicly during the police investigation.

Azarenka reached the semifinals at Wimbledon the last two years and had been seeded to face five-time champion Serena Williams in the final.

Student drops lawsuit LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawyers for a University of Kansas student have dropped the student’s lawsuit claiming a fraternity allowed underage drinking that contributed to a severe head injury he suffered. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Douglas County court records show that lawyers for Andrew Charles Johnson, Salina, voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit earlier this month. An attorney representing Johnson declined comment, and a lawyer for the defendants commented only to confirm the dismissal. Johnson had been seeking to sue the local chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon and its national organization. Johnson alleged they permitted underage drinking that contributed to a severe head injury he sustained at the chapter’s house in Lawrence in 2011.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Army said Tuesday that it will eliminate one infantry brigade at Fort Riley as the military reduces its overall number of soldiers by September 2017. Chief of Staff G e n . R a y mond Odierno said the 4th Maj. Gen. Funk Brigade Combat Team of the 1st Infantry Division will be inactivated. The brigade is one of 10 at Army installations nationwide being eliminated, in addition to two brigades in Europe. The move is part of the Army’s plans to reduce its overall strength by 80,000 soldiers to 490,000. The cuts were already planned by the military before federal budget reductions were put in place in March. Fort Riley is home to nearly 18,000 soldiers and three brigades of the 1st Infantry Division, as well as a combat aviation brigade. The elimination of the one brigade would partially be offset through the addition of other support battalions to the 1st and 2nd brigades remaining at Fort Riley. Maj. Gen. Paul Funk, commanding general of 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley, said the reorganization would also include soldiers from Fort Knox, Ky., where the division’s 3rd Brigade was being eliminated. The remaining division brigades will each receive a third maneuver battalion and increase their engineer and fire capabilities. Funk said details about how the changes would take place were being developed. “I can assure you that the entire team here is committed to mitigating — as much as humanly possible — the impact this announcement and its implementation will have on our soldiers, our families and our communities,” Funk said. John Armbrust, executive director of the Governor’s Military Council, said the cuts will leave Fort Riley with about 15,500 soldiers, still more than the 9,400 soldiers who were assigned to the post in 2001. He said 60 percent of the soldiers in the 4th Brigade would be reassigned to two remaining brigades. What isn’t known, he said, is what positions and ranks those soldiers who are being eliminated represent. “While it’s disappointing, Fort Riley is still a viable and important part of the Army in the future,” Armbrust said. The council will be meeting with local community representatives and Fort Riley leaders to assess the impact on the community, including housing, schools and the economy. to spend nearly $2 billion in new construction at Fort Riley to accommodate the influx of soldiers, including new barracks, training areas and hospital.

A ‘too-busy’ sister gets an unfair break Dear Carolyn: How do you kindly tell a family member that she is no more “busy” than anyone else in 21st-century America? My sister is always given a break by my mother. She gets out of all sorts of family obligations, gets tons of childcare help and sympathy, gets passes on forgetting birthdays and milestones and engaging in generally surly behavior a lot of the time because she’s just

so “stressed.” My sister works 40 hours a week.

day blowout, it’s a guilt trip. But she gets a pass because she’s so “busy.” I am sick of it. My sister’s latest thing is not returning phone calls because she’s just so scattered.

complete messes to get it. Help? — But I’m So Busy! Let it gooooooo .?.?. just drop your end of the rope. As legitimate as all of your complaints sound, they’re only as useful to you as they are productive. And what have they gotten you? Has your sister ever said, “You know, I really monopolize the family’s attention — I’m so sorry”? Has your mom ever said, “You know, I realize you’re just as busy as your sister, but deep down I feel responsible for her inability to get it together, so I let her suck me into the drama, and that’s not fair to you”? Hafta think not. If so, it’s time for Step 2, to stop looking for returned calls, child-care help or validation from your family. Unfair? Sure is. But dwelling on that only amplifies the impact of the unfairness on your life. If you mentally (emotionally?) write them off as being too low-EQ to recognize their messed-up dynamic, then you start looking elsewhere in your life for satisfaction and validation. Your spouse, your kids, your work, your circle of non-family loved ones, your causes close to your heart, your ability to live within your organizational means.

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.

Mandela family gathers at rural home Legendary leader, 94, in failing health JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Members of Nelson Mandela’s family and tribal elders gathered Tuesday at the former president’s rural hometown in eastern South Africa, as concern grew for the 94-year-old leader who spent a third

Cape province, 600 miles south of Johannesburg, where the anti-apartheid leader grew up. No details on what was discussed were announced. Those at the gathering included Mandela’s grandsons Mandla and Ndaba Mandela, according to press reports. The Mail & Guardian, a South African newspaper, reported on its website that some elders in the area were only told

In June 2004, at age 85, Mandela announced his formal retirement from public life. He largely stayed out of the spotlight, but he did meet with world leaders including a 2005 visit to President George W. Bush in Washington, D.C., shown here. day in critical condition in a hospital, local media reported. The office of President Jacob Zuma said Mandela’s condition remained unchanged after reporting late Sunday that his health had deteriorated to critical, alarming many South Africans as well as people around the world who regard the former president as a symbol of sacrifice and reconciliation. Mandela’s family members held a meeting at his home in Qunu village in the Eastern

South Africa’s defense minister and an Anglican archbishop also visited the facility. DOZENS OF doves were released on Tuesday outside the hospital, which has attracted well-wishers who have gathered outside to leave messages of support for Mandela. “In terms of releasing these doves, we’re simply saying it symbolizes how he has set free us as South Africans,” said Kelvin Hugo. “He set us free in the capacity not only of social freedom or economic freedom but he’s given us an opportunity to have freedom of speech, freedom of movement, freedom of association.” Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison during white racist rule and became South Africa’s first black president in all-race elections in 1994, was taken to the hospital on June 8 to be treated for what the government described as a recurring lung infection. Zuma’s office said doctors were doing their best to ensure his recovery and comfort. “We must support him and support his family,” Zuma said in

Mandela spent 27 years imprisoned in South Africa, most of them in this small Robben Island cell. He was released in 1990. a statement. “We must demonstrate our love and appreciation for his leadership during the struggle for liberation and in our first few years of freedom and democracy by living out his legacy and promoting unity, non-racialism, non-sexism and prosperity in our country.” The president asked that the legacy of Mandela, also known by his clan name Madiba, be celebrated on July 18, his 95th birthday. In recent years, organizers have sought to turn the day into an international event in which participants do something to honor Mandela’s values for 67 minutes, noting that he spent 67 years as a human rights lawyer, a prisoner, a peacemaker and a democratically elected president.

A military helicopter also was seen hovering over the Mandela home, reported the online edition of City Press, a South African newspa-

“We must all be planning what to do next month in marking our 67 minutes of doing good for humanity as called upon by Madiba to do so, when he launched the

International Mandela Day campaign,” Zuma said. “Let us make it the biggest Mandela Day ever on the 18th of July, focusing on doing good all over the country.” South Africa’s foreign minister, Maite NkoanaMashabane, said people should honor Mandela but not dwell excessively on his illness. “We continue to wish the father of our nation well,” she said. “We are realistic about his age. We are also consciously aware of the fact that the doctors are saying he remains critical. But I am sure he would be very disappointed, if he hears that because he’s very sick, life has stopped in South Africa.”
