This house on North First Street is just one of 152 structures listed as a substandard structure in Iola.

Substandard homes in ‘limbo’ A small, blue home sits on North First Street in Iola. Branches from nearby trees wind their way across the lawn, intertwined with the loose boards on the porch. According to Shonda Jeffries, Iola’s code enforcement officer, this is one of 152 structures on the “substandard structures” list in Iola. She said the home is owned by a family living in Texas, and they have no plans of renovation. This home is neither condemned, nor fit for living — the plight of many lots caught in limbo in Allen County. “They are the kind of houses you can drive by and tell,” Jeffries said of the dilapidated structures. The city currently budgets $16,000 a year for the demolition of between three to five houses. From the long list, Jeffries selects which homes will be demolished and then contacts a contractor. She said many people con-

tinue to live in what the city considers “substandard structures.” She leaves those properties alone when deciding which buildings to condemn. There’s enough vacated structures to deal with as it is.

The council has been very vocal. But it’s always about money. It’s hard to get the funds to get things done without raising the mill levy. — Corey Schinstock, assistant city administrator


The substandard structures list also includes garages, sheds and other small buildings. Assistant City Administrator Corey Schinstock said the council, which chose not to increase budget funds for demolitions during its June 24 meeting, has seen the need for more razing of homes in Iola. “The council has been very vocal,” Schinstock said. “But, it’s always about money. It’s

board can be removed. “It’s a long process to go through condemnation,” she said. “It’s so long and drawn out.” A PROPERTY is placed on the substandard list when it is essentially “totaled” — the value of the home is less than the cost to repair, Jeffries said. “Some house values are very low,” she said. Often-

times, a decaying roof may cost more to repair than the value of the home. With a slow economy, Jeffries said the number of dilapidated homes increases; the less money residents have, the less upkeep is done and the faster the home falls into disrepair. The city was awarded a Community Development Block Grant, a program funded through the state, to aid in the rehabilitation of rundown homes in the city limits. Over the past three years, 16 homes were rehabilitated through the grant, which allotted for $20,000 per home. For those whose repairs would cost more than $20,000, the owners were given the option to meet the cost at the midpoint. “We had to walk away from a few homes,” Jeffries said. She is currently writing reports on three homes to be demolished within city limits, the first of 2013. Humboldt City Administrator Larry Tucker said the city See CONDEMNED | Page A6

Grades kindergarten through 8th grade will meet from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The registration for this age group is $25 and $12.50 for Bowlus Kids Club members. There are still 20 spots available in this age group. The preschool (3-5) category has 10 available spaces. They will meet 9 a.m.11 a.m. at the Iola Public Library Flewharty-Powell Annex. Campers will have a full day of Western activities Monday through Thursday. Activities include cross stitch, making beef jerky, brewing root beer, and the construction of apple head dolls, bandana skirts, cowboy journals and much more. When choosing this year’s theme Traci Plumlee said organizers wanted to do something different than years past. Plumlee, business manager of the Bowlus as well as a mother of three, said the kids will have special entertainment on July 9. The Great American Medicine Show will perform for the kids during the camp. The Old West fun won’t stop there. “The variety act will give a free public performance Tuesday night in the bandstand,” Plumlee said. Show time is at 6 p.m. Later in the week the Iola Municipal Band will perform Old West tunes to incorporate the camp’s theme. Partners who are helping with the camp will give demonstrations during the week. Elyssa Jackson, Allen County Historical Society director, will give a basketweaving lesson and Kathy McEwan, Southwind Extension office, will See CAMP | Page A2

Egypt’s Morsi facing deadline CAIRO (AP) — With a military deadline for intervention ticking down, protesters seeking the ouster of Egypt’s Islamist president sought today to push the embattled leader further toward the edge with another massive display of people power. Meanwhile, Mohammed Morsi faced fissures from within after a stunning surge of street rage reminiscent of Egypt’s Arab Spring revolution in 2011 that cleared the way for Morsi’s long-suppressed Muslim Brotherhood to win the first open elections in decades. Three government spokesmen were the latest to quit as part of high-level defections

that underscored his increasing isolation and fallout from the ultimatum from Egypt’s powerful armed forces to either find a political solution by Wednesday or the generals would seek their own way to end the political chaos. The Cabinet, led by the Morsi-backed Prime Minister Hesham Qandil, was scheduled to meet later today. But the defense and interior ministers were expected to boycott in a sign of support for the military’s warnings. The police, which are under control of the Interior Ministry, have stood on the sidelines of the protests, refusing even to protect the offices of the Muslim Brotherhood that have been attacked and ransacked. Before the Cabinet session, Morsi met with Defense Vol. 115, No.175

Minister Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and Qandil in the second such meeting in as many days. No details were given about the meeting, reported by an official at the president’s office, Ayman Ali. At least 16 have been killed in clashes since Sunday between Morsi’s opponents and his many backers, who have equated the demonstrations and military arm-twisting to a coup against a democratically elected president. The Tamarod, or Rebel, movement which organized the protests has given the president until 5 p.m. today to step down or face even larger demonstrations and possible “complete civil disobedience.” In a highly symbolic move, the crowds have camped out See EGYPT | Page A6

Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) speaks at an pro-choice rally in Austin, Texas, Monday. ture is poised to finish its history-making work this year by passing legislation to protect the unborn and women’s health,” Perry said Mon-

supporters of the bill wore blue and recited the Lord’s Prayer. The legislative process now starts over, with lawmakers filing

day in a statement. Democrats can do little to stop the bill this time, only slow it down with parliamentary procedure. A late start gave Davis a chance to filibuster the bill on the last day of the session, but with 30 days in the new one, a repeat seems nearly impossible. “We know where the votes are. We also know what the calendar is. We know how difficult that calendar can be when it’s working against you,” said Austin Democratic Sen. Kirk Watson, suggesting the bill will likely end up in court. “If they win this battle ... I believe we will win the war.” Davis, whose filibuster helped catapult her into the national spotlight, told a crowd of some 5,000 opponents in orange T-shirts that their support helped her maintain the effort. “You were at the crux of a turning point in Texas history,” Davis said. Although far outnumbered, a few hundred

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — State troopers lined the halls of the Texas Capitol, and 5,000 protesters rallied outside against proposed abortion legislation, as lawmakers convened Monday for a second special session that Republican leaders pledged wouldn’t descend into chaos like the first. The Texas House and Senate each met for less than an hour before recessing for the week. That was just long enough to schedule new committee hearings for the proposed restrictions that would make Texas one of the toughest places in the nation for women to get abortions. Less than one week earlier, Democrats scored a rare victory in the GOP-dominated Legislature by running out the clock on the first special session. Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis of Fort Worth was on her feet for more than 12 hours — speaking most of that time — during the Democratic filibuster. When Republicans used parliamentary technicalities to silence her, hundreds of protesters in the public gallery and surrounding Capitol corridors cheered so loudly that work on the bill couldn’t be completed before the midnight deadline. “You’re going to see a completely different debate this time around,” said Rep. Steve Toth, a Republican from The Woodlands. “We’re not under that kind of timeline this time around.” Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst took no chances with raucous protesters in the second special session on Monday. Security was much tighter than before, with troopers — some of them in riot gear — throughout the Capitol complex. There were no arrests or any incidents of violence reported. And Dewhurst said the Senate would make one major procedural change as well. Rather than follow tradition and require a two-thirds vote to bring up a bill for consideration, he said it would take only a simple majority during this session. That could prove critical because Democrats hold 12 out of 31 seats and successfully blocked the abortion law during the regular legislative session. On the House side, State Affairs Chairman Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, said he would only allow less than nine hours of public testimony on the bill. Public protests erupted two weeks ago when he cut off testimony during the last session after 12 hours and denied more than 260 women the chance to speak. “A wise man once said, nothing good happens after midnight,” Cook said, explaining why he was limiting testimony. Although there would be no action on either floor during the Fourth of July week, committees were set to hold public hearings to consider the measure. Cook said his committee could approve the bill early Wednesday morning. The soonest the bill could pass the full Legislature is July 10, unless the Republican majorities suspend the rules to move it sooner. Gov. Rick Perry could sign the bill into law almost immediately. “The Texas Legisla-

bills, committees holding public hearings on each, then passing them to both full chambers to consider. That means reviving the proposals Davis and the protesters killed: banning abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, requiring that the procedure be performed

at ambulatory surgical centers, and mandating that doctors who perform abortions obtain admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles. Only five out of 42 clinics qualify as ambulatory surgical centers and they are located only in major metropolitan areas. Dewhurst has acknowledged that the ultimate goal is to shutter abortion clinics. Lainie Duro sat on the Capitol floor at 8 a.m. Monday with a stack of feminist literature and sex education books. “I’m always part of the unruly mob. We refuse to be ruled,” she said. “Poor women, women of color, rural women. If they need abortion they will not be able to get an abortion. Health care in Texas is already difficult for people in poverty to access.”

Wheat harvest 57% done WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The weekly snapshot of Kansas crops shows the winter wheat harvest at 57 percent as of Sunday. The National Agricultural Statistics Service said Monday the harvest lags behind the 99 percent completed last year at the same time. The late-June average is 67 percent. Cutting was delayed this year by cool weather that delayed

the wheat’s maturity. The agency says just 85 percent of the wheat is now ripe. By this time a year ago, the entire crop was ripe. It rates the condition of wheat still in the field as 43 percent poor to very poor, 24 percent fair and 33 percent good to excellent. The Kansas report also says farmers have planted 97 percent of the sorghum crop and 95 percent of soybeans.

HUMBOLDT — The Humboldt Lions Club has a spectacular display of fireworks planned for Wednesday evening on the golf course at the north edge of town, while several other events coinciding with the annual Mike Rickner Memorial fireworks display are sure to entertain the entire family. “We have one new (firework) that I’m excited about,” Lion member, Cole Herder said. “I like loud, if that gives you a hint, but I haven’t decided if it will be an opener or at the finale.” Each year the Lions members put on the fireworks display, another in the club’s lengthy list of community projects. Although they accept donations to help with costs, there is no charge for the display, scheduled for dusk. A number of members are certified to ignite the aerial explosives and large ground displays. They’re responsible for transporting the units to town for the show. “We pick up the fireworks (from the supplier) south of Topeka on the day of the show,” Herder said. “If it happens to get rained out, the fireworks have to be returned to Topeka that night, because we’re not licensed to store the ex-

plosives.” The Humboldt High School Gridiron Club will be on the southeast corner of the golf course with pork burgers and hot dogs for sale beginning at 5:30 p.m. Country gospel music entertainers will perform at 6:30 p.m. in the parking lot of Faith Assembly of God Church and a remote control model airplane flying exhibition and display will be set up on the golf course. Beginning at 7 o’clock, homemade ice cream will be served at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church for a free-will donation going to the Humboldt Volunteer Fire Department. Arrowood Lane Residential Care will serve watermelon and cantaloupe at the care facility. Throughout the evening, three-wheeled Odyssey rides on the golf course will be going on starting at around 6:30. For the best view, visitors are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets and sit along the south and east sides of the golf course. The area (except where the remote control planes are located) is open for children to play, however no individual fireworks are allowed on the golf course. If the fireworks display has to be postponed due to weather, it will be held on Thursday.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Wendy Davis, you go, girl! It wasn’t the Alamo, but Texas Gov. Rick Perry wasn’t taking any chances. Monday morning more than 100 heavily armed state police swarmed the Texas capitol to guard against abortion rights supporters. Armed with truncheons and helmets, state police stood at the ready in case the demonstration turned ugly. Hardly. The crowd, an impressive 5,000 in number, were mostly women in bright orange T-shirts signifying their support for pro-choice. Texas legislators were called back to Austin for a second special session by Gov. Perry. Perry tacked on the extra legislative session to address last Thursday’s debacle caused by State Sen. Wendy Davis’ 11-hour filibuster that effectively stalled stringent new rules on abortion clinics. Thursday’s victory for pro-choice supporters will be short-lived. The bill is all but guaranteed to pass Wednesday in the predominately Republican House and Senate. The measure bans abortions after 20 weeks, requires that abortionists have admitting privileges at a local hospital and that clinics meet the same standards as hospital surgical centers. The last measure is expected to force the closure of all but five of the state’s 45 clinics. DAVIS, 50, says her real argument is against big government invading what she regards as a woman’s prerogative. She herself was a teenage mom. At age 18 she was married and had a child. By 19, she was divorced, dirt poor, and raising her daughter Amber in a trailer park. But at that point, all similarities between Davis and the typical teenage mom part ways. Davis was a determined, and smart, young lady. She put herself through Tarrant County College followed by Texas Christian University, on scholarships. She then attended Harvard Law School, graduating with honors. From there she joined a Texas law firm and made it big. Her parents divorced when she was 11, when her dad pretty much left the scene. Her mother, Ira, had a sixth-grade education. Davis began working at 14 to help support her mother and siblings. She was the first person in her family to earn a college degree. Clearly, Davis is an anomaly.

Truth is, less than 2 percent of teen moms attain a college degree by age 30. Heck, only 38 percent end up getting a high school diploma. Two-thirds of families born to unmarried teens are poor, and one-quarter of teen mothers go on welfare within three years of the child’s birth. So yes, the predictors for success for those born to single, teenage mothers are dismal. Ms. Davis is fully aware of the effort it took to rise above what for most people is a life sentence of low-paying jobs and limited opportunities for their children. Ms. Davis chose to become a teenage mother believing she could buck the odds. The choice was hers. It’s a privilege she wants all women to be able to enjoy. WHO GETS abortions these days? By and large, four predictors: those who are young, unmarried, poor and black, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease and Control. Abortions among blacks are more than twice the national average. More than half say they do not want to bring a child into their current circumstances. They are desperate. Abortion keeps their lives from getting worse. As birth control measures have improved, the number of abortions has decreased significantly. Someday, perhaps when men take more responsibility in birth control, abortions can be eliminated. That’s the goal. To help keep contraception as the predominate means of birth control, minorities and youths must have better access to birth control methods. Some work better than others. Those that are long-acting and require minimal intervention such as the injectable kind and the IUD, have very low failure rates. Birth control pills and condoms can be effective, but have higher failure rates due to their dependency on consistent use. As a society, we can keep unintended pregnancies at a minimum by keeping public health clinics funded and having our schools do a good job of teaching sex ed. Davis was ready for a fight last week, by evidence of her wearing sneakers instead of high heels. Her tenacity and strength among such hostile foes — her “colleagues” — was admirable. It’s amazing what one person can do. Were that we all were so impassioned. Wendy, you go, girl. — Susan Lynn

Snowden forfeits high moral grounds The longer former National Security Agency contract employee Edward Snowden stays holed up in the transit area of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport while Russian President Vladimir Putin cynically proclaims him a martyr to freedom of speech and expression, the less Mr. Snowden looks like a hero and the more he looks like a traitor, a spy and a rogue employee intent on betraying his country’s secrets for the selfaggrandizing rewards of fleeting celebrity. Whatever pretense he once may have had of occupying the moral high ground of principled civil disobedience has evaporated. Mr. Snowden burst from obscurity onto the international stage two weeks ago when he was identified as the source of documents leaked to the Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper that revealed the existence of a massive electronic eavesdropping program carried out by the NSA. Subsequently, administration officials claimed that the agency broke no laws, that its surveillance was vetted by the courts and that it was necessary in the government’s ongoing efforts to ferret out suspected foreign terrorists. Whether Americans believe that or not, the news that the NSA was secretly tracking the phone records, emails and Internet use of millions of innocent Americans dominated the news cycle for nearly a week. But then the focus rapidly shifted to Mr. Snowden’s motives in outing the program. Initially he claimed that he wanted to spark a national debate over the government’s

Alookbackintime  40 Years Ago Week of July 1, 1973

The increasing fuel crisis is beginning to take its toll of gas station jobs in the Iola area. Of the stations surveyed by the Register, seven indicated they had trimmed a total of 11 part-time and full-time jobs. Some of the positions were eliminated

through natural attrition, but most job holders had to be laid off. The total payroll loss to the local economy is estimated at close to $3,000 a month. As for gasoline, from the Register’s survey it appears the supply in Iola will be some 100,000 gallons less this month than was sold last July. Three stations,

Since neither China or Russia ... are known for their tolerance of free speech and expression among their own citizens, the irony of their pious defense of Mr. Snowden from persecution in the U.S. is especially galling. Hong Kong, where he had fled, Mr. Snowden justified his violation of the espionage laws as an act of civil disobedience against what he called his government’s unlawful activities and added that he was willing to face the consequences of sticking to his principles. When American authorities asked Hong Kong authorities to hold him for extradition, Mr. Snowden forgot about facing the consequences and fled to Moscow instead. That set off a diplomatic contretemps between the U.S. and China, which allowed Mr. Edwards to leave Hong Kong unmolested, as well as the Russians, who insist, absurdly, that since Mr. Snowden remains in the airport’s transit area he technically isn’t in their country at all and therefore can’t be arrested. Mr. Snowden’s ultimate destination is thought to be Cuba or Ecuador. The latter, which has also offered sanctuary to

tolerance of free speech and expression among their own citizens, the irony of their pious defense of Mr. Snowden from persecution in the U.S. is especially galling. The truth is the former NSA worker handed them a golden opportunity to stick it to the U.S., and they gleefully pounced on it. Thus what began as a purported attempt to spark a broad public dialogue about the legality and extent of U.S. surveillance programs has ended up as a higher stakes version of “The Amazing Race” with Mr. Snowden as the star. The four laptop computers full of American secrets Mr. Snowden is said to be carrying — and who knows where those will end up? — have become mere props in a bad drama that milks a legitimate issue regarding the tension between government’s violation of privacy rights and its duty to protect citizens from terrorist attack for its last drop of entertainment value. Meanwhile, weighty matters of national security requirements, bureaucratic overreaching and the erosion of Americans’ trust in their privacy rights in the digital age have taken a back seat to the made-for-TV saga of the elusive Mr. Snowden’s efforts to evade justice, helped by a trio of brutally repressive nations who have turned out to be no friends of the U.S. Suddenly the whole show is all about Mr. Snowden, and one begins to suspect that was what he wanted all along. — The Baltimore Sun

Grab-and-go box can simplify recovery Weather can cause widespread destruction and billions of dollars in property damage. And, while those who are affected can be anxious to put the experience behind them, the rebuilding process can be slowed by a lack of essential information. In times of loss, law enforcement officials typically require identification before allowing homeowners to inspect their property, said Elizabeth Kiss, K-State Research and Extension family resource management specialist. Insurance companies and emergency management teams also will require identification, proof of ownership, insurance coverage, etc., to begin the claims process, she said. If such documents are stored in damaged property such as a home, garage or shed, the documents may be gone; if in a safe deposit box with a financial service provider that experienced storm damage, a vault may not be immediately accessible. A disaster may also limit access to the Internet. A good plan is to organize important documents and make copies for a grab-and-go box to simplify the recovery process. An ideal grab-and-go box should

be fireproof and waterproof, big enough to store important documents,

Anne Ludlum Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences

but portable enough for members in the family — older children, if parents are not at home — to pick up and carry to a storm shelter or a neighbor’s basement. To begin, gather and copy documents that will be most difficult to replace. Examples might include birth certificates; Social Security, Medicare and health insurance cards; marriage certificate; homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policies, as well as policies for vehicles and other property — such as a boat or camper; and copies of credit cards and passports. Copies of financial records — account numbers and a recent statement — and cash also should be included. Prescription medications for three days, an extra pair of eyeglasses, and digital, or duplicate, copies of family photos should also go into the box.

Let family members know where the graband-go box and emergency supplies are stored. Family members are encouraged to plan where they will gather if separated during a storm and how they will get in touch with each other once the crisis has subsided. Pending local conditions, it might be wise to agree to call a relative who lives in another area who likely would not be affected by the storm. Kiss also advised insurance customers to review their policy and coverage prior to annual renewal, and again, prior to seasonal weather-related events. Discuss questions and concerns with your insurance provider to adjust coverage before storm season. A home should be insured for no less than 80 percent of replacement value on the structure and contents. Insurance companies will require documentation before compensating policy holders for a loss. That’s why a household inventory is important. While the thought of inventorying everything in your home can be overwhelming, there are several different ways to tackle the task. Take a picture of each wall in each room, with additional photos of special items and cup-

board and closet doors open to show contents. Taking a video in each room can be a quick and easy start. For a more detailed list start with one room or one wall at a time, with a goal of inventorying one room a month to complete a household inventory in a year or less. Once an inventory is completed, it becomes a fluid document, meaning that if you replace a piece of furniture, appliance, home computer, winter coat, etc., a quick notation will be all that’s needed to update the inventory. Add a copy of the inventory to the Grab-andGo Box, and consider sending a copy to a relative who lives elsewhere.

receives anywhere from 20 to 30 complaints on “nuisance properties� during the course of a year. They do not keep a running list of substandard homes. He said the block grant Humboldt received in 2010 allowed them to tear down 10 homes, some with volunteer compliance from the owners. “It’s a problem, but not too serious of a problem,� he said. “We got a headstart on it in 2010.� He said the homes in Humboldt are not in the same sort of state as some of the homes in Iola. But, he and Jeffries shared in the opinion that is was the out-of-town owners that proved to be a handful — not the locals. “Some people buy houses thinking it’s an investment,� Jeffries said. “Then it gets out of hand.� THE PROCESS of de-

molishing a home is not an easy one either, Jeffries said. The city of Iola follows a bidding process through contractors for most of the demolition

work, save for the properties that are being developed on following demolition. She said the city charges $3,500 to raze a one-story home, and if the property is developed within one year, the cost is reimbursed to the owner. For those not receiving development, a notice is sent to the owner of the home. They are given the option to hire a contractor for demolition, or the city can do the legwork and then bill the owner. Then, the de-construction begins. Tom Highberger, owner of Highberger Construction in Westphalia, has done demolition work through the city in the past. Following the 2007 flood, his crews demolished 85 homes within the city limits. The cost for razing a property can range anywhere from $2,200 to $4,400, he said, for any common home. His crews, made up of four to five workers, start by tearing down the main walls with an excavator. He said it is important to make sure

He recounted a situation where he was demolishing a large building, which had a roof one-half of an inch from another structure. It was a job that took some care. After the walls are torn down, his men work to fill in the basement. They remove any debris, save for the concrete basement slabs that lie six to seven feet underground. They then work to plug

home. The spare debris is taken to the landfill, for a charge, or any usable material, such as rock, is taken to farmers or landscapers. It takes his crews two days to do a “top-notch job� in tearing down a house.

at Cairo’s Tahrir quare, the birthplace of the 2011 uprising that toppled Hosni Mubarak. They also have massed outside the president’s Ittahdiya palace in the leafy suburb of Heliopolis. On Monday, a line of around 1,500 men with shields, helmets and sticks — assigned with protecting the rally — stamped their feet in military-like lines, singing, “Stomp our feet, raise a fire. Islam’s march is coming.� The volatile atmosphere has been made even more unsettled by the prospect the military could soon step in. The military’s declaration, read Monday on state TV, put enormous pressure on Morsi to step down and sent giant crowds opposing the president in Cairo and other cities into delirious celebrations of singing, dancing and fireworks. But it also raised worries on both sides that the army could take over outright as it did after the 2011 ouster of Mubarak and raised the risk of a backlash from Morsi’s Islamist backers, some of whom once belonged to armed militant groups. Morsi’s office issued a statement saying a “modern democratic state� was one of the main achievements of the anti-Mubarak uprising, adding, “With all its force, Egypt will not allow itself to be taken backward.� While not bluntly rejecting the ultimatum, it said Morsi was still reviewing the military statement and that some parts of it “could cause disturbances in the complicated national scene.� A foreign ministry official said career diplomats Omar Amer and Ihab Fahmy have stepped down after near-

ly five months speaking on behalf of Morsi. On Monday, six Cabinet ministers quit. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. State TV later reported the resignation of Cabinet spokesmman Alaa el-Hadidy. Also today, an Egyptian court dealt another blow to Morsi’s authority, ruling that the president’s widely disputed appointment of an attorney general last November was illegal. Morsi’s dismissal of Mahmoud AbdelMeguid, who was appointed by Mubarak, was seen by the judiciary as an encroachment on its independence. The opposition has long demanded the removal of Abdel-Meguid’s successor, Talaat Abdullah. Hours after its announcement, the military issued a second statement on its Facebook page denying it intended a coup. “The ideology and culture of the Egyptian armed forces does not allow for the policy of a military coup,� it said.

Paul stays in L.A. as free agency begins By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

Chris Paul’s answer was brief, just like his time on the free agent market. “I’M IN!!!” he wrote Monday on Twitter. He will be staying with the Clippers, the longtime losers he helped turned into a division champion in just two seasons. Dwight Howard will need more time to think. Free agency opened Monday in the NBA with the focus on the pair of Los Angeles All-Stars, though Paul took himself off the market only hours after shopping season started. Agent Leon Rose confirmed Paul’s return, which had been expected after the Clippers signed Doc Rivers as their new coach. The Clippers can pay the twotime Olympic gold medalist around $108 million for five years. Howard can make even more by staying with the Lakers, but that won’t stop him from looking elsewhere. He met with the Houston Rockets early Monday, the Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks also are interested, and the Lakers have said repeatedly they want to keep him. The Rockets got the first crack at persuading him to leave. With Hall of Famers Hakeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler joining its contingent, Houston pitched Howard on joining All-Star James Harden. Rockets general manager

Chris Paul Daryl Morey wrote on Twitter that it was a great meeting with Howard and that having Olajuwon and Drexler there “made it obvious how (Howard and Harden) could be the next (great) big/ wing combo.” Hawks general manager Danny Ferry and new coach Mike Budenholzer were visiting Howard later Monday, trying to convince him to join his hometown team. And he’ll meet today with the Lakers’ delegation. His first — perhaps only — season in Los Angeles was a disappointment and he acknowledged being unhappy at times. But the Lakers want to keep the former Defensive Player of the Year, believing the extra year and about $30 million more they can give him will provide a huge advantage. Steve Nash, who like Howard had a difficult first season in Los Angeles, tweeted Monday that he was flying See PAUL | Page B2

Sabine Lisicki of Germany defeats top-ranked defending champion Serena Williams on Monday in the round of 16 at Wimbledon’s Center Court. Lisicki, ranked 23rd in the world, rallied in the third set to pull out a 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 victory that ended Williams’ 34-match winning streak.

Another day, another stunner Lisicki ousts Williams at Wimbledon By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

LONDON (AP) — Serena Williams sounded far less surprised than pretty much anyone else that her 34-match winning streak ended. At Wimbledon, where she was seeded No. 1 and is a fivetime champion. Despite leading 3-0 and 4-2 in the final set.

In the fourth round. Against someone seeded 23rd. “Come on, guys, let’s get with it. She’s excellent,” Williams said. “She’s not a pushover.” That clearly is true about Sabine Lisicki. Still, it was surprising to see Williams lose after going unbeaten — and generally looking unbeatable — for 4? months, until slumping down the stretch and bowing out 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 Monday against Lisicki by dropping the last four games. “I felt,” said Williams, the defending champion, “that I

was on the verge of winning.” But her collapse, and the demise of the longest winning streak in women’s tennis since 2000, fit right in at this unpredictable Wimbledon, where up is down, where seedings and pedigree mean nothing whatsoever. “Didn’t play the big points good enough,” Williams said. “I didn’t do what I do best.” Instead, Williams was passive in crunch time and essentially let Lisicki do what she does best: dictate points quickly with big serves, powSee WIMBLEDON | Page B2

Kings introduce McLemore

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — One grew up in such poverty he had days when he wondered where he would find his next meal. The other is a coach’s son who attended the same high school as a player whose jersey is retired in the rafters. Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum, while opposites in many ways, are now tied together in the same backcourt. The Sacramento Kings hope that will be the case for several years to come. On the day NBA free agency began, Sacramento formally introduced its draft picks Monday. The team touted both as players with high character and tremendous potential who will help build the foundation of the franchise’s “new era,” which could

erful returns and pinpoint groundstrokes. If that sounds familiar, could be because it’s the formula Williams uses. Except on this breezy afternoon, Lisicki compiled a 10-7 edge in aces, a 35-25 lead in winners, and broke Williams five times. Two days before facing Williams, Lisicki insisted she did not consider it an impossible task. “You have to play your best to beat her, that’s for sure,” Lisicki said Saturday, after advancing to the fourth round, “but, you know, everybody’s (a) human being.” Her play was as confident as her words, especially at the outset Monday, when Lisicki won five games in a row, and the finish. The German’s game is built for grass. Merely 16-15 at the other three Grand Slam tournaments, Lisicki is 17-4 at the All England Club. She reached the semifinals at Wimbledon in 2011, and is into her fourth quarterfinal, coincidentally beating the reigning French Open champion every time: Svetlana Kuznetsova in 2009, Li Na in 2011, Maria Sharapova in 2012, and Williams in 2013. “Good omen,” Lisicki said. “Obviously,” she said, “I went into the

After all, Williams owns 16 major championships, and entering Monday, the 31-year-old American had won 46 of 48 matches this season, and 77 of 80 since the start of Wimbledon in 2012. “You cannot be perfect, every match, all year,” said Patrick Mouratoglou, the French coach who began working with Williams last year. “She won 34

matches in a row. It has to stop one day. It has to happen. And it happened today.” Only one day into the tournament’s second week, Williams joined quite a list of those already out: Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Victoria Azarenka and Sharapova — all major title winners, all former No. 1s, all gone by the end of Day 3. “This,” summed up 17th-seeded Sloane Stephens, “has been a crazy Wimbledon.”

The wealthy Silicon Valley businessman said each impressed him as much or more as a person than as a player. McLemore’s wellchronicled rise from a depressed St. Louis neighborhood to a star at Kansas has finally reached the NBA, a place he could only imagine when he was growing up in the smallest house on Wellston Avenue. He chose the No. 16 with the Kings because he is one of Sonya Reid’s six children — and also because the two numbers equal

from New York to Los Angeles to help the Lakers make their pitch. “(Dwight Howard) we’re coming for you,” he wrote. “You’re going to love the statue we build for you outside Staples in 20yrs!” Contracts can’t be signed until July 10, after the next season’s salary cap has been set. The Hawks also were expected to meet with their unrestricted free agents, Josh Smith and Kyle Korver, on their trip to Los Angeles, a person with knowledge of the plans told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Monday’s meetings have not been officially announced. There is plenty of interest in Smith, a versatile forward, and Deron Williams announced the

Nets’ interest in Korver by posting a picture of the sharp shooter in a Brooklyn uniform on social media. Andray Blatche will return as a backup in the Nets’ soon-to-be upgraded frontcourt. The 6-foot11 forward-center agreed to a multiyear deal, his agent said. Blatche will provide minutes behind All-Star center Brook Lopez and Kevin Garnett, who will come from Boston along with Paul Pierce in a deal that was agreed to on draft night, but can’t be completed until after next season’s salary cap is set. The Knicks are hoping Andrea Bargnani relocates his outside shot after agreeing to a deal with Toronto to acquire the No. 1 overall pick in the 2006 draft. The Raptors will receive Knicks

reserves Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and Quentin Richardson, who will be signed-andtraded. The Knicks are also sending the Raptors a 2016 first-round pick and two second-round picks, according to a person with knowledge of the details. Bargnani averaged a career-best 21.4 points just three seasons ago, but finished with his worst scoring and shooting numbers last season since he posted career worsts of 10.2 points and 38.6 percent shooting in 2007-08. Other top players that are available include Denver’s Andre Iguodala and Philadelphia’s Andrew Bynum — both part of the four-way trade that sent Howard from Orlando to Los Angeles last summer — and Indiana’s

David West. Sixth Man of the Year J.R. Smith of the Knicks is a free agent, as is former winner Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs, who also could lose forward Tiago Splitter. Miami is trying to hold onto Chris Andersen, which would essentially keep together the entire core of the team that beat San Antonio in seven games to win the NBA championship.

HAYS — A two-day summit on child suicide scheduled later this month could turn out to be the largest suicide-prevention forum of any kind in the state in more than a decade, according to organizers. Led by officials at Headquarters Counseling Center in Lawrence, planners have set the Kansas Youth Suicide Prevention Summit for July 30-31 on the campus of Fort Hays State University. The hope is to draw as many as 300 people from around the state, said Headquarters Director Marcia Epstein. “I talked to a woman who wanted to come because she lost her grand-

to prevent and address suicide in their communities. “It’s not about saying, ‘Oh let’s all feel sad because a lot of people die by suicide,’” Epstein said. “It’s about saying this is a significant public health crisis in our state, and we can all make a difference and here is something you can do.” According to the latest statistics from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the state had 384 suicides in 2011, down from 409 the year before. Suicide was more prevalent among males,

representing more than 80 percent of them in that two-year span. The average age of suicide victims those two years was in the early to mid-40s, according to the data. But after unintentional injuries, suicide was the second leading cause of death for Kansans between the ages of 15 and 24. Though the focus of the summit would be on prevention among individuals between the ages of 10 and 24, Epstein said, the information would apply across age ranges. As a crisis clinician at the Johnson County Mental Health Center, Bill Art has a long history with suicide-prevention efforts. With Epstein, he is co-chair of the Suicide Prevention Subcommittee of the Governor’s Mental Health Services Planning Council. He said the Fort Hays summit would probably be the largest such event dedicated to suicide prevention since back-toback statewide meetings were held in 2000 and 2001. Those meetings came at a time of heightened focus at the federal level by then U.S Surgeon General Dr. David Satcher, Art said. At about the same time, Garrett Lee Smith committed suicide. His father was a U.S. senator from Oregon at the time, and he pushed legislation establishing a federal suicide prevention grant program in his son’s name. Kansas received a three-year, $1.4 million Garrett Lee Smith grant last year and the Fort Hays summit is part of the work through the grant. Working on an update of the state’s suicide prevention plan also will be a key focus of the summit, Art said. The state published its initial plan in 2006, he said, and it’s overdue for an update. He said the state must update its plan to remain eligible for federal mental health block grant funding.

Federal suit against Kansas on fast track By JOHN HANNA Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The chief federal judge for Kansas on Monday set what she called an aggressive schedule for a lawsuit by Planned Parenthood against parts of a new state abortion law dealing with providers’ websites and what information they must provide to patients before terminating pregnancies. Judge Kathryn Vratil outlined the schedule as most of the law took effect. The schedule would allow a hearing on the merits of Planned Parenthood’s legal challenge to begin July 29 in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan. Vratil ordered Planned Parenthood to file written legal arguments by July 16 and set a July 19 deadline for the state’s response. Planned Parenthood would then have until July 22 to file an additional reply. “The Court sets this aggressive briefing schedule to accommodate the parties’ request to expedite a ruling on the merits,” Vratil wrote. Vratil refused Sunday to prevent state officials from enforcing the provisions of the law being challenged by Planned Parenthood, which performs abortions at an Overland Park clinic. Planned Parenthood of-

ficials have yet to comment publicly on Vratil’s decision, despite requests for comment Monday. However, in a separate state-court lawsuit by two doctors, a judge in Shawnee County temporarily blocked one of the requirements. It mandates that providers have a link on their

websites to a state health department site on abortion and fetal development with a statement that the department’s information is objective and accurate. Providers dispute information on the state’s site. They object to material suggesting a fetus can feel pain by the 20th week of pregnancy, when the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said as recently as last month that there’s no evidence of it.

Ultra-conservatives hold food stamp program hostage By THOMAS BEAUMONT Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — For decades, country and city interests had come together every few years to pass the farm bill, a measure that provided billions of dollars in subsidies to farmers and businesses in rural areas and food stamp money for urbanites. No more. The recent defeat of this year’s farm bill — traditionally a sturdy, albeit lonely pillar of cooperation in Washington — highlighted how the country-city political marriage became yet another victim of partisan politics in polarizing times. The divorce throws into doubt the future of sweeping agriculture and nutrition spending. Here’s how the breakdown of a longtime coalition happened: Newly emboldened conservative groups pressured rural-state Republicans — many representing agricultural districts — with radio ad campaigns to oppose the five-year $940-billion bill, calling its proposed cuts to food stamps too little. Hardly faultless, Democrats, whose districts mostly encompass urban areas home to food-stamp recipients, refused to budge on cuts they considered too deep. Each party was fearful of angering their core supporters.

It was the height of partisanship over a measure that long had been devoid of it. “That kind of thing wouldn’t have happened at another moment in time,” said Rep. Allyson Schwartz, a Pennsylvania Democrat who opposed the measure. Rep. Steve Daines, RMont., voted for it, and bemoaned the result of House failure to pass it: “Doing nothing is worse than doing something.” Traditionally, Democrats and Republicans have worked closely together to pass farm bills. Long ago, conservative rural lawmakers whose numbers in Congress were shrinking became aware that they alone couldn’t muster enough votes to pass a measure paying for farm programs. So they agreed to include foodstamp money in the farm bill in exchange for support from their more liberal urban peers. IT WAS A mutually beneficial relationship. Conservative lawmakers were mindful that the measures included subsidies for farm-growing regions home to their core constituents, while liberal lawmakers were keenly aware that they contained dollars for food assistance that largely went to their bedrock voters in big cities. Each party needed the other to pass the measure that melded both farm and food money, and it almost always passed with bipartisan support.

But this year, when House Speaker John Boehner urged lawmakers to support the bill and put it up for a vote, it failed to get enough support, shocking longtime congressional observers and lawmakers alike. Tea party-backed conservatives refused to budge in their demands for even deeper cuts to the food stamp program, which has doubled in cost over the last five years to almost $80 billion annually and now helps feed 1 in 7 Americans. The House version already had proposed slashing the $955 billion version of the bill that the Democraticcontrolled Senate had passed by $20.5 billion in food-stamp cuts. That wasn’t enough for some Republicans and their allies, who were looking ahead to the 2014 midterm congressional elections and worried about the impact of supporting the measure. LAWMAKERS like Rep. Walter Jones, RN.C., who voted for the $600 billion farm bill in 2008, were clearly mindful that they would be inviting this type of criticism if they backed this year’s measure. The congressman, who often talks about his district’s tobacco, cotton and soybean production, chose not to take that chance. He voted against the bill after Americans for Prosperity targeted him with radio ads and an email push to contact his office.

Stick shift causes major problems Dear Tom and Ray:

I have a 2009 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport with a stick shift. Every now and again, when I have the car in third gear, the stick will pop out. If my hand happens to be resting on the gear and it pops out, I can feel the stick pushing out of gear. If I try to put the stick back into gear too soon, it grinds, not allowing or wanting me to put the stick back in third gear. This all happens in a matter of seconds, and then I can get the stick back into third. It doesn’t feel right, and I’m not the only person who has experienced this. My husband borrowed my car once and asked if I knew about this. I had told him about it prior to his borrowing my car, but he apparently hadn’t “heard” me, haha. It happens at least

once a day, and when I mentioned it to the Subaru dealer where I take my car for servicing, he told me he didn’t experi-

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi ence it, and that was the end of it. Have you ever heard of this happening, and do you have any ideas on what I need to do to repair it? — ­­Ann RAY: Yes, we’ve heard of this. How do you think we’ve been able to afford a bigger boat every year at the shop? TOM: Your third-gear synchronizers are shot, Ann. The only way to fix that is by rebuilding or replacing the transmission. RAY: Yeah, I know:


I’d probably go with a used or rebuilt transmission on a 5-year-old car like this. Depending on which way you go, that’ll cost you somewhere in the $1,500-$3,000 range. Maybe your husband will “hear” that? RAY: So, depending on your long-term plans for this car, you might want to just ignore it for now. You won’t hurt anything else if you do. And fortunately, you still have four other forward gears that are working. TOM: You probably noticed this, but it almost always will pop out when you’re accelerating. So when it pops out of third, shift to fourth. RAY: You probably can get away with that for a while. Eventually, though, you won’t be able to get it into third TOM:

at all. And at that point, you’ll have to decide if you want to become a lifetime member of the Second-to-Fourth Club, fix the problem or trade in the car. TOM: On the other hand, if you know you’re going to be keeping this car until the bitter end, then you should get it fixed right away. Why? Because why suffer with the problem another day if you’re going to pay to fix it eventually? It’s going to cost you just as much a year from now. So why not start enjoying a properly working car right away? RAY: Or, since your dealer wants to convince you that the transmission is working perfectly, maybe he’ll give you full value on a trade-in now, without discounting it for a transmission rebuild. Good luck, Ann.

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.
