Hawk tells colorful history By KAYLA BANZET kayla@iolaregister.com

Gary Hawk intrigued Iola citizens during Friday’s meeting of See, Hear Iola. Hawk was the guest speaker and gave a talk on his work and achievements. Hawk brought multiple visuals for the crowd to see and with the help of Elyssa Jackson, A l l e n County Historical SoRegister/Kayla Banzet c i e t y director, explained the item’s purpose. Each item or photo had a story and history behind it. The crowd took special interest in his story of painting an ornament for the White House Christmas tree. Hawk has worked for many places in the past like Hallmark and Boeing and he said he “loves making things.” He has met important people including U.S. presidents and Walt Disney. “Work is not work for me,” Hawk said. “Work is a pleasure for me.” He has created invention

CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. — A volunteer from the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center led Ke’nai, a young male timberwolf, into the circle of SAFE BASE students. They rocked back and forth in anticipation as the wild animal moved from person to person, letting them pet its soft black fur. The group had traveled from Leadville earlier Thursday morning, and had arrived at the preserve at around noon. The compound sits outside of Cripple Creek, in the Rocky Mountains. Inside its wire fences live some of the mountains’ most beautiful and endangered wolf species. The students had the chance to examine timber wolves, red foxes, arctic wolves, coyotes and not-to-be-forgotten, Burrito the donkey. The tour culminated in the petting session with Ke’nai.

Senior complex on horizon By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

This building along Main Street in LaHarpe was among those damaged in Thursday night’s powerful storm that downed scores of trees here and elsewhere, and cut power for much of LaHarpe through Friday afternoon. Even with the damage LaHarpe PRIDE said it will still host its Color Splash 5K run and 3K walk this morning at 8 o’clock.

Construction of a senior living complex on a 3.8-acre parcel in the 1000 block of North Kentucky Street may start this fall. “We plan to have it open by about this time next year,” said Jack West, founder and CEO of Neighborhood Senior Living, Inc., Dallas. Iola’s Planning Commission will consider the project July 17. The planners’ recommendation then will go to city council members. At a by-invitation meeting for neighbors Tuesday evening, several expressed reservations about the project, which would necessitate a change in zoning for the area from R-1 (single family) to R-3 (multi-family). Iola Administrator Carl Slaugh said about 30 people attended the session, with most expressing opposition or reservations about having a multi-family dwelling near-

by. Among concerns were traffic and lights that would be associated with buidlings and parking areas. “They questioned the impact on the neighborhood, having been used to it having been an empty field for years,” Slaugh said of the prospective site. West’s intention is to develop 26 residential suites for senior living, as well as eight suites in a memory care unit for people with dementiatype concerns. Project cost was put at $5 million. West said the complex was designed with neighboring residential areas in mind. Unlike most apartment buildings, it would be single story and its tenants are of a quiet nature. The complexes also generate little additional traffic to a neighborhood, West said. Initial reports were of two memory care units and a larger residential building. “We have additional land

if we want to expand,” West said. “We didn’t want to overdesign at the start.” West predicted as many as 25 full-time employee positions would be created with the project’s opening. City officials have been in the loop as West’s plans have unfolded to add Iola to his stable of 30 senior living complexes. The first, Georgetown Village, opened in Wichita in 1982. The majority of neighborhood projects are in smaller towns, including Marysville, Clay Center, Seneca, Belleville, Basehor, Lyons, Larned and Hoisington. “We have gone to smaller communities where the need is greatest and that developers have overlooked,” West said. While he would be the majority owner of the Iola project, West said he would seek local investors. “I like to include local people as much as possible,” he See SENIOR | Page A4

Storm leaves scores powerless A thunderstorm accompanied by fierce winds swept through Allen County late Thursday night, downing limbs and trees, severing power and damaging buildings. The storm’s duration was relatively short but intense. It produced little moisture; about half an inch in Iola and lesser amounts elsewhere. Power was off in broad areas of west Iola and many other places, where service lines were whipped loose or broken from moorings by falling limbs. Most power in Iola was restored by midnight or a

little after, but in Gas and LaHarpe, where it took longer. Corey Schinstock, assistant city administrator, said Iola crews would pick up limbs placed along the roadside starting Monday. “We figure the weekend will give residents plenty of time,” to prepare for the pickup, he said. Farmers were not distressed by the rain that fell. It wasn’t enough to deter the wheat harvest and gave a boost to corn and soybeans. LAHARPE

Big draws include Thursday night Farmers Markets, concerts by the Iola Municipal Band and the ice cream socials. Many have come to see one of the “8 Wonders of Kansas,” General Funston’s boyhood home and the Allen County Museum complex. People come to fish in the Neosho River, which gives us an opportunity to point out our other fishing hole at the South Elm Creek Park. On Thursday, a couple stopped to get directions for a golf course so they could get a round in for the day. Visitors leave comments on the Bowlus Fine Arts Center, the Veterans Wall, the big clock on the square and the square in general and how beautifully they all are maintained.

Windsor Place…

Giving loved ones the quality care they need & deserve. “The care my daughter-in-law Cathy gets here is great. The staff is very kind and really seems to care about the residents. And for that, we are very grateful. I spent some time here myself not too long ago to recover from an injury. I was here for about a month. My stay was also very pleasant. The food was very good. In fact, I’d like to have some of the cook’s recipes. I would not hesitate to come back for another stay should it be necessary.” Betty Nelson – Former Short-term Resident and Mother-in-law of Cathy Nelson, Windsor Place Resident

Betty Nelson has experienced Windsor Place in a variety of capacities. As a visitor, as a caregiver and as a short-term resident, she has spent a lot of time with us. Betty’s relationship with Windsor Place began a few years ago. Her daughter-in-law, Cathy, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Betty’s son, Larry, with the help of his family, were able to care for Cathy at home for several years, but eventually her care became too much for the fam-

ily to handle on their own without 24-hour professional help. Cathy became a resident at Windsor Place in July of 2012. Betty visits often. So when she needed a place to recover from a broken pelvis, she knew exactly where to come to get the care she needed to get better quickly. Windsor Place is ready to help your family with its care needs…long-term or short-term. To find out more, give us a call at (620) 365-3183, ext. 20.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Take heat seriously Mural on museum grounds inviting Thursday morning the police scanner buzzed with a call about a fellow, in his 40s, who was having physical problems attributed to the heat. No wonder. Thursday was a scorcher. The mercury climbed to 95 degrees and the humidity must have about as high. Next to no breeze made conditions even more uncomfortable. Every time the weather starts to heat up, I recall the blistering weather that made 1954 a year to remember — 54 days of 100 degrees or more, including 27 in July when the local record of 116 was set. It’s not a bad idea to give some thought of how to deal with hot days in a safe manner, particularly if you’re on the older side or have physical concerns heat could complicate. Here are a few tips gleaned from the National Institute on Aging that would be good for everyone: — Stay out of direct sunlight, and avoid strenuous activities. — Wear lightweight, lightcolored and loose-fitting clothing that permits perspiration to evaporate. Wear a hat to protect head and face. Don’t forget to apply sun-

screen. — Drink plenty of liquids. Water or fruit and vegetable juices are a good choice to replace fluids lost to perspiration. Avoid alcohol and beverages that have too much salt; salt can complicate medical problems. — Take advantage of airconditioning. It’s a good idea

to cool off with a bath or shower — those around you also will be appreciative. — Above all, take the heat seriously. Don’t ignore danger signs such as nausea, dizziness and fatigue. Also, be a good neighbor. If you have an older person or someone with health concerns living nearby, check occasionally to see if help is needed. Also, don’t forego the comfort of air-conditioning to save a few dollars. What you save could pale in comparison to what the consequence might be.

Kayla, now a month on the job after graduating from the University of Kansas School of Journalism, interviewed Ron Moore, owner of Iola Office Supplies, muralist Jim Stukey of Burlington, and Elyssa Jackson, director of the historical society. All three were on board for a mural to be painted on the south side of Moore’s building, though they were not aware of any recent groundswell of support. Stukey has been in Iola this past week painting upbeat figures on the south side of Jan Knewtson’s downtown store, Sophisticated Rose. He’s also done multiple murals in downtown Burlington as well

A mural depicting pioneers on the Oregon Trail. as other cities. The big blank wall to the north of the museum grounds is a perfect canvas, Stukey said. Its rough surface provides an interesting texture and automatic three-dimensional relief. I can envision a scene of a Kansas prairie with perhaps smaller images of Allen County notables, including Gen. Fred Funston and Tom Bowlus, benefactor of the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. Perhaps art students at Allen Community College or Iola High School could take it on as a project. It could be

changed out every few years. That’s the good thing about paint — the image would not be cast in stone. For passersby traveling U.S. 54, the large mural would be easy to see and further draw their attention to the museum complex. Wall art speaks volumes about a community’s creativity. A large mural is a window into our history and also reflects our current excitement for our community. Such a piece of art says “Welcome, come hear our story.” All that, with nary a word. That’s what art can do.

Rulings are prudent

Common Core’s conservative roots Levi Straus coined the phrase “reductio ad Hitlarum” to describe the logical fallacy (error) of tying one’s opponent to Adolph Hitler by ridiculous means: a special kind of reductio ad absurdum. For example: Hitler was evil. Hitler had a mustache. Therefore, mustaches are evil! Hitler was one of history’s truly vicious agents, but similar fallacies can be used to tie an idea to anyone one dislikes, such as President Obama.

Michael Smith

A new term, reductio ad Obamnium, might best describe the backlash against Common Core standards. Recently, an amendment to defund Common Core failed by only four votes in the Kansas Legislature. Advocates vow a renewed effort next year. Common Core should be a conservative triumph. First initiated by a bipartisan group of governors, it aims to replace the convoluted, overlapping regime of state “No Child Left Behind” standards. Instead, it proposes a relatively straightforward set of principles, voluntarily

and jointly adopted by multiple states. Supportive Republicans include current and former governors and education secretaries: Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Bill Bennett, John Engler, Chris Christie, Sonny Perdue, Bobby Jindal, Rod Paige, and Mitch Daniels. As for Democrats, the Obama Administration supported grants for states to develop and implement the standards. While no consensus exists to repeal the decade-old NCLB law outright, the Obama Administration found a work-around: granting the states waivers, upon approval of their own substitutes to the law. Conservatives have long championed such waivers, which portend less federal micromanagement. I have helped many students wade through the baffling array of professional jargon and detailed control making up many pre-Common Core standards, no two states alike. Viewable at corestandards.org, Common Core is a breath of fresh air. For example, the English literature and social studies standards for high school juniors and seniors can be understood by a reasonable person with no education-school background. Summarizing briefly, English standards focus on students’ understanding of the texts they have read, including the author’s use of language. For social

studies, students evaluate an argument, separate fact from opinion, and review evidence for a claim. Common Core opponents see the standards “paving the way to a federal takeover” and “taking control away from parents and communities.” I see little evidence for this in the actual standards. For example, regarding reading materials, the standards suggest a few books that are already classroom staples, but final decisions stay with teachers, communities, school boards, or states. However, opponents rarely cite the standards themselves. Nor do they discuss Common Core’s beginnings as a voluntary, bipartisan state effort, its Republican supporters, or the waivers that soften NCLB’s controlling mandates. Only one thing matters: President Obama put his imprimatur on Common Core by including funding for it in the 2009 stimulus bill. Therefore, it must be stopped. Opposed by the conservative Americans for Prosperity, Common Core is also meeting resistance in Georgia, Utah, California, and elsewhere. At this rate, the standards may need revisions to teach future students the identification and avoidance of reductio ad Obamnium. Michael A. Smith is an associate professor of political science at Emporia State University.

For anyone who favors marriage equality, Wednesday was a good day, and a historic one. The Supreme Court struck down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act barring any federal recognition of same-sex marriages. It also let stand a lower court ruling that invalidated California’s ban on such unions. Gays and lesbians have never had so much reason to applaud the court. And given the majority support for same-sex marriage among Americans, plenty of their heterosexual friends and relatives were cheering as well. But those partial to judicial restraint also had grounds to be grateful. In a realm of policy that raises once-unimaginable challenges to established law, where public sentiment and state policy have undergone such rapid change, the court was wise to act in a cautious, deliberate manner. Both of these cases show a court determined not to be pushed into an aggressive role on the issue. Gay-rights advocates wanted a decision establishing constitutional protection for samesex marriage, as a simple matter of equality. Appealing as that course may be as a matter of policy, it would have been premature, at least, for the justices to take it. The DOMA verdict was more circumspect. It doesn’t tell states that they have to allow same-sex marriage. It merely respects the right of states and their citizens to legislate on marriage, something they have long taken for granted. It’s state, not federal, laws that establish things like the minimum age and divorce rules. It’s also state laws that govern whether same-sex couples may wed. But even in states where they may, they get a second-class version of the institution — thanks to DOMA. It says the 1,000-plus rights, privileges and benefits accorded married people under federal law are available only to heterosexual couples. Married couples are allowed to file federal tax returns jointly, unless they are of the same sex. An American who marries a foreign citizen may sponsor the spouse for legal residence here, but not if the couple is gay. Same-sex veterans joined in matrimony are not entitled

to be buried together in military cemeteries. Assigning inferior status to these couples, the court recognized, is impossible to reconcile with the principles of equality embedded in the Constitution. States are not obligated to allow gays to marry. (Nor, under a section of DOMA that remains intact, can they be forced to recognize same-sex marriages from other states.) But if they do allow such unions, the federal government has a duty to treat their marriages the same way it treats others. One of the states where gays will be free to marry is California. After the state Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage there, voters approved a ballot measure, Proposition 8, amending the state constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman. A federal district court ruled it unconstitutional. That was fine with the top elected officials in the state, who favor gay marriage and declined to appeal the decision. A federal appellate court let Prop 8’s organizers do it instead. But the Supreme Court said that decision was a mistake, because they lacked a direct stake in the case — what courts refer to as “standing.” The result was to leave in place the original district court verdict overturning the ban. It was a technical decision that only a lawyer could love. But it had the virtue of preserving same-sex marriage in California without mandating it nationwide. It didn’t endorse the conclusion of the lower courts that the U.S. Constitution guarantees gays the right to wed — but it didn’t reject it, either. It left that question for another day, after social attitudes and policy preferences have had the chance to incorporate the lessons of experience in states that allow same-sex marriage, as well as those that don’t. As supporters of same-sex marriage, we think seeing it become part of life in many parts of America will only confirm the wisdom behind it. Hello, Illinois House. It’s your turn. This was a good day for marriage equality. But its best days lie ahead. — The Chicago Tribune

Indians too much for visiting Maddogs By RICHARD LUKEN

richard@iolaregister.com

With the outcome scarcely in doubt Thursday, Iola’s AA American Legion squad changed up things a bit in its lineup. The Post 15 Indians had Levi Ashmore start the first game against visiting Garnett from the mound — pitching submarine style to great effect. Ashmore fired a one-hitter, striking out seven in an 8-0 win. A teamwork approach from the mound was nearly as effective in the nightcap. Three Indian pitchers combined on a one-hitter in an 8-1 win. The victories lifted Iola’s overall record to 24-2. The Indians stand at 14-0 in the Kansas Amateur Baseball Association League. Iola returns to action Tuesday at home against Chanute before returning to Chanute next weekend for a tournament. ASHMORE ALLOWED only two base runners in his five in-

KU’s McLemore, Withey drafted SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The Sacramento Kings are taking another chance on a Kansas product with potential. With Thomas Robinson’s first-round flop still fresh from last season, Sacramento’s new ownership and basketball operations team selected the latest Jayhawks standout with the seventh pick in the NBA draft Thursday night: shooting guard Ben McLemore. “Seven is my lucky number,” new Kings owner Vivek Ranadive said. “When I was at the Warriors we got (Stephen) Curry, (Harrison) Barnes at seven, my birthday is on the seventh, the Mayor (Kevin Johnson) was picked seventh, he wore the number seven and we got the best player in the (draft) at seven.” New general manager Pete D’Alessandro hopes McLemore pans out better than predecessor Geoff Petrie’s previous pick that entered the league with a similar background and expectations. The Kings took Robinson fifth last June, but he struggled

D’Alessandro had McLemore No. 1 on his draft board since he scouted him with Denver’s front office. Ranadive said they even contacted other teams to try to

ANOTHER three-run first inning propelled the Indians in game 2. Ashmore, Trent Latta and Coons led off the first with singles. Coons drove in Ashmore with his hit. Latta scored on an error, and Weir had a sacrifice fly for the third run. Nathan Whitcomb led off the second with a walk. He moved to third on two singles and scored on Trent Latta’s sacrifice fly, pushing the lead to 4-0. See INDIANS | Page B5

Armstrong: ‘Impossible’ to win without doping PORTO VECCHIO, Corsica (AP) — The dirty past of the Tour de France came back on Friday to haunt the 100th edition of cycling’s showcase race, with Lance Armstrong telling a newspaper he couldn’t have won without doping. Armstrong’s comments to Le Monde were surprising on many levels, not least because of his long-antagonistic relationship with the respected French daily that first reported in 1999 that corticosteroids were found in the American’s urine as he was riding to the first of his seven Tour wins. In response, Armstrong complained he was being persecuted by “vulture journalism, desperate journalism.” Now seemingly prepared to let bygones be bygones, Armstrong told Le Monde he still considers himself the record-holder for Tour victories, even though all seven of his titles were

nings of work. He hit one batter to lead off the third, then surrendered his only hit with one out in the fifth on a pop-up that landed just beyond the infield. Meanwhile, he struck out all seven batters in his last three innings. The submarine pitching wasn’t anything in particular that Ashmore had been working on in practice. “Just looking for ways to have fun,” he said. The Indians struck for three in the first, on a one-out single by Trent Latta, a pair of errors, Derrick Weir’s sac fly and Braden Larson’s two-run single. Three walks, an error and a 45-foot sacrifice fly in the fifth set up another big Iola rally. Jarred Latta’s two-run double was the big blow. Larson had perhaps the weirdest RBI of the game. His foul pop in front of the Indian dugout was caught by Garnett pitcher Noah Miller. But the catcher also was racing to try for the catch, leaving home plate unguarded. Weir beat Miller to home for the seventh run. And Aaron Barclay’s follow-up single drove in Jarred Latta to end the game, via the eight-run mercy rule. Mason Coons stroked two singles, and scored two runs. Jarred Latta had a double, two runs and two RBIs. Larson drove in three runs on a single. Trent Latta singled, as did Barclay. Jacob Rhoads chipped in with a double.

coach Mike Malone and said, “I think we have a chance to get our guy.” The 6-foot-5, 195-pound McLemore gives the Kings an elite shooter and gifted athlete with tremendous upside, though one whose ball-handling skills and ability to create his own shot have been questioned. The second-team AllAmerican broke Danny Manning’s freshman scoring record at Kansas while shooting nearly 50 percent from the floor and 42 percent from 3-point range. McLemore averaged 15.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and two assists on a team that went 31-6 and won a share of its ninth straight Big 12 title. Most scouts touted McLemore’s resume and expected him to go in the top three. Even the world’s most wellknown player wondered what was up when McLemore began to slip. “They sleeping on Ben McLemore. Just watch,” LeBron James

Jeff Withey tweeted. McLemore was forced to redshirt during the 2011-12 season when he was declared a partial academic qualifier by the NCAA, but he made the most of his only season in Lawrence. With a dizzying array of dunks, a silky smooth outside shot and a boyish grin, he quickly became one of the school’s top players. He even graced a regional cover for Sports Illustrated prior to the NCAA tournament. MEANWHILE, Kan-

that doping was just “part of the job” of being a pro cyclist. The banned hormone erythropoietin, or EPO, wasn’t detectable by cycling’s doping controls until 2001 and so was widely abused because it prompts the body to produce oxygen-carrying red blood cells, giving a big performance boost to endurance athletes. Armstrong was clearly talking about his own era, rather than the Tour today. Le Monde reported that he was responding to the question: “When you raced, was it possible to perform without doping?” “That depends on which races you wanted to win. The Tour de France? No. Impossible to win without doping. Because the Tour is a test of endurance where oxygen is decisive,” Le Monde quoted Armstrong as saying. He argued doping will never be eradicated. “I did not invent doping,” Le Monde quoted Armstrong as saying. “And nor did it end with me.”

sas’ Jeff Withey went to Portland after a strong defensive career at KU. The 7-footer was named the National Association of Basketball Coaches co-defensive player of the year after setting a new KU singleseason blocks record with 146 rejections in 2012-13. Withey earned Big 12 defensive player of the year honors the last two seasons and completed his career with a school-record 312 blocks. Offensively last year, Withey averaged 13.7 points per game while making 58 percent of his twos and 71 percent of his free throws. He also led KU in rebounding — averaging 8.5 boards per game — and was a consensus second-team All-America selection. McLemore and Withey are the 73rd and 74th players to be drafted in KU men’s basketball history. The Jayhawks have had at least two players taken in the draft four straight years.

Volatile month ends quietly NEW YORK (AP) — Given the wild trading of late, it was a calm close to the month. After flitting between tiny gains and losses most of Friday, the stock market closed mostly lower, a peaceful end to the most volatile month in nearly two years. “It’s a dull Friday,” said Gary Flam, a stock manager at Bel Air Investment Advisors. A bull market, he added, is “rarely a straight march up.” The Standard & Poor’s 500 index ended its bumpy ride in June down 1.5 percent, the first monthly loss since October. The index still had its best first half of a year since 1998. Investors seemed unsure how to react to recent statements by Federal Reserve officials about when the central bank might end its support for the economy. Mixed economic news Friday added to investor uncertainty after big stock gains. The S&P 500 stock index closed down 6.92 points to 1,606.28. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 114.89 points to 14,909.60. The Nasdaq composite index rose 1.38 points to 3,403.25.

IHS class of 1973 reunites The Iola High School Class of 1973 held its 40th class reunion June 21-22. Of the 131 graduating seniors, 56 attended. A Friday evening mixer was hosted by Ron and Debbie (Hawk) Smail at the Allen County Airport. Saturday events were at the Allen County Country Club. Classmates gathered on Saturday afternoon for visiting and looking at class memorabilia. Saturday evening included a happy hour. Dinner was catered by Elaine Stewart and the Marmaton Valley FCCLA students. Classmate Hal Walker was cheered on as he re-enacted his famous “Johnny Mustang” mascot character. Marie Larzalere Krizanovic, with help from Sandy Parrish Keating, filled the club with laughter as classmates played charades using high school teachers as the subject and then told a story using various boxes of candy. Donna Hawk Regehr took the traditional class reunion photograph. After a weekend of renewing and strengthening friendships, classmates left with enthusiasm, excitement and promises to keep in touch through their

Corn in good shape DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture says farmers will come through with the predicted corn crop despite the Midwest’s wet spring that delayed planting. Some states — including Michigan, Nebraska and Texas — planted more corn than expected,

which will make up for the loss in Iowa, the nation’s top corn producer. Friday’s annual acreage report is based on farmer surveys, and surprised farmers, analysts and commodities traders. Many expected the number of corn acres planted to fall by about 2 million acres.

Mechanics can check a car’s emissions Dear Tom and Ray:

We live in Buffalo, N.Y., and our son will be living and attending graduate school in Glendale, Ariz. He owns a 2000 Ford Contour that will be in Arizona. From what I have learned, his car will have to pass an emissions test once he is out there. With the car being so old, we are concerned that it might not pass. Is there anything we can do before we go through the expense of taking his car to Arizona to determine if we will have to put money into it? — Richard Tom: Absolutely. Ray: Does this involve taping a Benjamin Franklin to the underside of the registration? Tom: No, this is legit. For cars that are model year 1996 and later, the emissions inspection is done by computer. You can have the same test done locally. Ray: All 1996 and later

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi cars have a system called OBD II. That stands for On Board Diagnostics ... uh, Two! This is the second generation of OBD. OBD is a system of monitors that continuously check things that relate to a car’s emissions — things like the catalytic converter, whether the engine is misfiring and whether the fuel-tank vapor-recovery system is keeping gas fumes from leaking out into the air. Tom: If anything that affects the car’s emissions is not working correctly, that monitor will tell the computer, and the computer will command the check engine light (also known as the MIL — malfunction indicator light) to light up on

your dashboard. Ray: So if the check engine light is off and the car’s monitors all report that they are “ready,” then your car will pass that part of the emissions test. Tom: You can have that stuff checked at any repair shop that has a scan tool, which almost every shop has these days. They simply plug their scan tool into your car’s OBD port, and it gives them a readout. If the readout says “monitors ready” and the check engine light is off, you’re good to go in New York or Arizona. Ray: Actually, they allow you to pass even if you have one monitor that is not “ready.” For instance, one thing that’s monitored is the fuel-tank pressure. The tank is supposed to be able to hold pressure rather than release gasoline fumes to the envi-

ronment. But if you just refueled the car, that monitor may show “not ready.” So the one monitor exception is designed to give you a pass on reasonable faults. Tom: The second part of Arizona’s emissions test just checks your gas cap, to make sure it holds pressure. Your local garage can check that, too. Ray: Keep in mind, though, that one thing that leads to emissionstest failures is a dead battery. If your battery dies, or it is disconnected while the car is being shipped, all of the information in the OBD II system will be wiped out. That means you’ll need to drive the car 25 or 30 miles, with enough restarts, for the OBD system to collect enough data to be able to report again. Tom: But other than that, if it passes the OBD II in New York, it should pass in Arizona, too.

innings of work with five strikeouts, one hit and one unearned run. The Maddogs’ only tally came when Tanner Lickteig reached first base after a third-strike passed ball eluded catcher Jacob Rhoads. He made it all the way

to third on another passed ball, then scored on Braydon Miller’s ground ball. Ashmore had three singles to lead the Iola offense in the nightcap. Trent and Jarred Latta, Coons, Larson and Heffern each had singles.

DAILY CRYPTOQUOTES - Here’s how to work it:

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

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers

SPEED FREAKS

A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves

AP/ERIC RISBERG

You have to wonder if he checked the expiration date on that champagne.

Martin Truex ends long losing streak. Who's next?

GODSPEAK: Wow! That's a long list. Just for fun I'm going to pick David Gilliland; not this weekend, but David Ragan owes him a favor at Daytona. KEN'S CALL: Not sure, but I'd like to see Mark Martin sneak in one more before he heads to the sunset.

The Kentucky race is Saturday. Do you prefer Saturday nights or Sunday afternoons?

GODSPEAK: Going back to my roots, I think 500-mile races need to start at 12:15 p.m. Sundays and 400-mile summer races get the green flag at 10 a.m. KEN'S CALL: Sunday afternoons are fun when you don't feel like you're missing something on TV, so I'm going with Saturday night.

HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ

The heartbreak of gas For those who possess empathy and compassion, you had to feel just a bit bad for Juan Pablo Montoya and his outcome Sunday at Sonoma Raceway. Montoya was running third at the start of the final lap and 1.99 miles later was scored 34th, the last car on the lead lap. Montoya's No. 42 Earnhardt Ganassi Chevrolet was the victim of dry-fuel-tank syndrome. The Colombian driver thought he had enough gas (and ethanol) to finish the race, but came up short on the money lap. He coasted to the finish line as car after car after car passed him for position. Apparently, the guy keeping track of Montoya's fuel usage suffered a short or other malfunction in his calculator, because missing the mark by nearly two miles was a gross blunder. Montoya shrugged it off. “It’s just heartbreak, it’s heartbreak for me and everybody on the Target team. You’ve got to defend them in the way that they do the fuel calculations based on the other runs. And [on] the other runs, when you’re stuck in traffic, you can’t run that hard.” Montoya said. “Then you get in clean air and they're asking me to run as hard as I can, and I'm doing that, you're going to use a little more fuel. It should have been a little smarter.”

This jinx stinks

AP/JOHN EHLKE

Forget what you see here, AJ Allmendinger is pointed in the right direction.

Is AJ Allmendinger all the way back?

“I still think we had the fastest car,” Bowyer said. “It's just that jinx, man.” Bowyer did visit Victory Lane Sunday. He went there to congratulate Truex, his teammate at Michael Waltrip Racing.

Not quite. AJ’s win last Saturday in the Nationwide Series race at Road America was his first career NASCAR victory. But you’re not “back” until you’re a full-time Cup Series driver again. It’s still amazing, though: Nearly a year ago, by innocent mistake or whatever, Allmendinger fell into that “substance abuse” category. To be where he is right now is testament to the occasional positives that come from tucking your tail, going where you’re pointed and, once there, making no waves. Of course, it helps to be well-liked by everyone.

Reading tea leaves

That big sigh you heard Saturday from the direction of Bristol, Conn., came from ESPN's corporate headquarters when this headline rolled across the sports wire: “NBC Sports Network to Air Four ARCA Racing Series Races in August.” ESPN is waging a bidding war with NBC for the next NASCAR television rights package. If you recall, Fox has already renewed its pact at a 33 percent premium. The current contract goes until 2014, which means the next four or five months will be a bloody, bare-knuckle brawl between the heavyweight broadcasters. NBC apparently wants to knock the dust off its stock-car broadcasting equipment. “We couldn't be more excited than to have the opportunity to secure additional exposure of the ARCA Racing Series on NBC Sports Network,” said an NBC honcho. Sigh.

Wasn’t Max Papis always well-liked by everyone?

Yeah, pretty much. And he still is, it seems, even by Billy Johnson, whose helmet was on the receiving end of an openhanded slap from Papis after Saturday’s Nationwide race. Papis’ “Mad Max” label isn’t a referendum on his personality; it dates back to his mad dash in the closing hour of the 1996 Rolex 24 at Daytona. At Road America, Johnson bumped Papis and knocked him out of the top 10. Afterward, Papis walked by Johnson and whacked him on the helmet. Shortly thereafter, Max apologized for his loss of composure, Johnson took the blame for what happened on the track, and just like that, a potential feud is dampened. Oh well.

Clint Bowyer says Sonoma Raceway is cursed – with winners. When Martin Truex Jr. won Sunday's Toyota/Save Mart 350, he became the ninth consecutive different winner at the West Coast road course. Tony Stewart started the strange little winning streak when he won the race in 2005. Since then, eight other drivers have tasted red wine from the crystal goblet. Bowyer was hoping to break the streak, but finished fifth.

Even Kurt Busch remained calm. What’s up?

Two speeding penalties, zero meltdowns. It all must have something to do with the summer solstice. Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR for The Daytona Beach News-Journal for 27 years. Reach him at ken.willis@news-jrnl.com
