Lawmaker U.S. and Pakistan to resume talks pledges scrutiny By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

By JOHN HANNA AP Political Writer

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A key Republican legislator promised Wednesday that GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s next appointee to the Kansas Court of Appeals will be thoroughly vetted during a special legislative session even if the appointment comes only days before the Senate begins considering the nomination. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Jeff King dismissed criticism from Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley — that the new judge’s appointment could escape public scrutiny — as “patently absurd.” But Hensley, a Topeka Democrat, was skeptical of the assurances from King, an Independence Republican, and said senators won’t have enough time to examine the nominee’s record. Brownback took applications for a newly created position on the state’s second-highest court until Wednesday, and he has until Aug. 29 to name the new judge.

ISLAMABAD (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his Pakistani counterpart, Sartaj Aziz, said today that the two countries will resume high-level negotiations over security issues. Kerry also said he had invited Pakistan’s newly elected Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, to come to Washington to meet with President Barack Obama. “I’m pleased to announce that today, very quickly, we were able to agree to a resumption of the strategic dialogue in order to foster a deeper, broader and more comprehensive partnership between our countries,” Kerry said at a press conference with Aziz in Islamabad. He said the talks will cover “all of the key issues between us, from border management to counterterrorism to promoting U.S. private investment and to Pakistan’s own journey to economic revitalization.” The U.S. and Pakistan launched high-level talks on a wide swath of security and development programs in 2010. But the talks stalled in November 2011 after U.S. airstrikes on a Pakistani post on the Afghan border accidentally killed 24 Pakistani

soldiers. Even before that, the bilateral relationship was severely damaged by a variety of incidents, including a CIA contractor shooting to death two Pakistanis in the eastern city of Lahore and the covert U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistani town of Abbottabad. The resumption of the strategic dialogue indicates that the relationship between the two countries has John Kerry improved since that low point. But there is still significant tension and mistrust between the two countries, especially regarding U.S. drone strikes and Pakistan’s alleged ties with Taliban militants using its territory to launch cross-border attacks against American troops in Afghanistan. “It is also no secret that along this journey in the last few years we’ve experienced a few differences,” Kerry said. “I think we came here today, both the prime minister and myself, with a comSee TALKS | Page A4

The completed 4-H projects of Madi, left to right, Tori, Lizi and Cody White covered the family table last week, and several more were added before fair entry deadline. They are the children of Travis and Sherry White.

Fair a busy, exciting time for siblings HUMBOLDT—The month of July was a whirlwind of activity in the White household north of town, as the Allen County Fair quickly approached. “It can be very stressful,” Sherry White, mother of four, said. “I know we should start earlier, but with the kids involved in sports and things, we’re busy.” This year all four children are taking part in the fair entering projects they have worked on, some in the sewing, arts and crafts, photography, cooking, welding, buymanship and fiber arts categories. Not yet old enough to be in 4-H, Cody, 6, showed a project for the first time with the Cloverbuds. The three girls, Tori, 12, Madi, 9, and Lizi, 7, members of Logan Pals 4-H, have multiple entries. “We still have things we’re working on,” Sherry said while being interviewed July 25. “The cooking we

don’t do until the weekend before the fair, so it will be fresh.” Sherry is familiar with the county fair process having been a 4-H member as a youth in Crawford County. She encouraged her children to get involved in Allen County and with the influence of grandmother, Mary Francis White. Once Tori

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Sidewalk sale, a good chance to shop at home With the price of gasoline hovering somewhere between $3.70 a gallon and the cost of an appendectomy, wise shoppers in this neck of the woods will take advantage of Iola’s annual sidewalk sale Friday and Saturday. It will be a chance to save money, on fuel and with bargain price, as well as a fine time to pick up backto-school clothes and any number of things that have been on the to-buy list. Most downtown merchants will have merchandise moved to the sidewalk early Friday morning, but don’t stop there. They also will have prices marked down on much of their instore items. For years Iola’s sidewalk has been a much-awaited event the first weekend of August, and this year’s will be no different. Our merchants diligently strive to have a good selection of the latest styles in clothing, trendy footwear, gifts items both cute and functional and baby items galore. It seems almost trite to talk about very good reasons to shop at home, but it doesn’t hurt to recall a few every now and again. First off, Iola merchants are friends and neighbors. They and their clerks care about local folks — and it shows. They make special efforts to help shoppers find what they want and once purchased if there’s a problem they are eager to make things right. Unlike the malls, where it often is hard to find a clerk, much less one who is

helpful, Iola merchants are eager to help, have inviting dispositions and truly are concerned about assisting customers. The sidewalk sale always draws a good crowd, and with spacious sidewalks downtown, shoppers find it easy to get about and if someone has a little trouble with mobility, others go out of their way to be understanding. We’ve a number eateries, where breakfast and lunch are just an order away, — and there aren’t waiting lines and outrageous prices. And, a very big plus for shopping here is that downtown Iola is within easy driving — often walking — distance, which means not having to fill the tank for a two hour’s drive. Money saved on fuel can be added to the shopping purse for things to take home and enjoy for months, even years, to come. BEST of all, when shopping at home we’re supporting people who are responsive and supportive of all that goes on in town. Our merchants are eager to help with a multitude of kids program and never turn down a chance to do this, that or whatever to make Iola and the area a better place for all of us to live. Be sure to take in the sidewalk sale — fact is, shop here at every opportunity — and while at it, thank each merchant for continuing to be an integral and important part of the community. — Bob Johnson

Flash flooding costly LINDSBORG, Kan. (AP) — Officials in a central Kansas community now estimate the damage from this week's flash floods at $3.8 million. Lindsborg officials issued the new estimate Wednesday following additional inspections of homes that were inundated Monday when up to 5 inches of rain fell in roughly an hour. The initial estimate was $2.5 million. The city will hold a public information meeting at 7 p.m. today at Smoky Valley Middle

School. The meeting will focus on assistance, cleanup, sanitation and health issues. KSNW-TV reported Lindsborg teenagers are pitching in to help. Smoky Valley High School football coach Chris Hattabaugh brought 30 of his players plus 15 girls Wednesday to the home of Herbert Johnson, whose basement was filled with water. Johnson says he's grateful for the assistance in cleaning up.

taQuest. Oral Health Kansas will work on the project with the Kansas Dental Association, Kansas Hospital Association, Leading Age Kansas and the Kansas Health Care Association. Goals include creating pilot programs to strengthen local dental care and identifying barriers to access.

Feeding 9 billion people in 2050 By JOHN FLOROS

Shortly after World War II, the U.S. agricultural industry began developing and adopting a series of research, development and technology transfer initiatives that greatly increased agricultural production. The Green Revolution, as it was called, was the world’s response to a burgeoning population, at that time about 2.4 billion people. It was particularly beneficial to people in such developing countries as India, which in the early 1960s was on the brink of mass famine. U.S. scientist Norman Borlaug, known as the “Father of the Green Revolution,” won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work during this time, and is credited with saving a billion people from starvation. Fast forward to today. The world’s population has tripled since the 1950s, and the United Nations estimates that 870 million people around the world are undernourished. Put another way, 1 in 8 people in our world don’t have enough food to eat. By 2050, the world’s population will spike again; current estimates say that planet Earth will top 9 billion people, which means that in 35 years, our world’s farmers

will need to feed an additional 2 billion people. And so, I ask, can agriculture keep up with the world’s growth? We can, but consider this: In order to feed all the people

needs. Meeting future needs for food means researchers must learn about new ways to improve nutrition, store food safely, conserve water, control pests, prevent crop dis-

The world’s population has tripled since the 1950s and the United Nations estimates that 870 million people around the world are under-nourished. Put another way, 1 in 8 people in our world don’t have enough food to eat.

on Earth the next 50 years, we will have to produce an equal amount of food to what we have produced up to this point in history. In order to produce the equivalent of the Green Revolution in the 21st century, we need to be equally passionate toward conducting research. Our society must invest in basic and applied research and maintain the commitment to education and outreach. Agriculture — whether it is traditional or modern, sustainable or organic, small- or large-scale — needs more science and technology, not less. In turn, the industry must be consumer-driven, and be able to adapt to changing

ease, and improve the health of farm animals. They must learn and then teach farmers about how to grow more food on the same amount of land. Norman Borlaug and others before us successfully met similar challenges more than 50 years ago. Now it’s our turn. We need a second Green Revolution if we’re going to feed 9 billion people in 2050. John Floros is the dean of the College of Agriculture at Kansas State University, and the director of K-State Research and Extension. Kansas is the No. 1 wheat-producing state, and wheat is No. 1 in food calories consumed in the world today.

Letter to the editor Dear editor,

The planning and zoning commission is put in place for a very good reason and it is their job to decide zoning. They decided against rezoning and the council went over their head for a man from Dallas. I could care less what a man from Dallas thinks. I do care what the neighbors of this property think. Obviously, the council could care less. These property owners have lived in the neighborhood and paid taxes for many years and seem to have no say. Usually the council has trouble agreeing on anything and that particular night, they voted to rezone and there had to be a very good reason that we haven’t heard yet. There is more to the vote than anyone knows yet. I am not a neighbor, but I have a question. How would anyone from Dallas, Texas, even hear of Iola, Kansas, and decide this is the place for him. That is very odd. There are plenty of other places to build if he just has to be in Iola, but not a location that calls for rezoning. What a slap in the face to go against the zoning commission. Why the council

did that has a lot of citizens of Iola talking and shaking their heads. I am not proud of our city council. I am disgusted, aggravated and down right angry that they think they have the right to rezone — and they did. There has been countless city council meetings and they haven’t been able to agree on anything. Now we have all these people voicing their opinions, and the council does not care. No, you don’t. They will have the noise and mess of the construction. You won’t, so you don’t care. This reminds me of a time when I lived in Moran and the new family moved to Moran. He was a wheeler-dealer and got the attention of Moran and all of the farming community. One of the first things was to gather the farm wives and get them to canvass the town and rural areas to raise money for a swimming pool for Moran and our children. We raised a lot of money — and he decided we needed a golf course. I am still ashamed that I had a part in it. He was a smooth-talking, fast-talking son-of-a-gun. I tried to talk my husband into not having anything to do with him, but he went into

business with him, twice. He became mayor. He got Klein Tools in from Chicago. No taxes for so many years. They left. He got the farmers to trust him. He was ohso-smart — also devious and crooked. He embezzled from the farmers at the elevator and served time in prison. I am not saying (anyone here would ever do anything illegal), I am saying (some) are too trusting. The council seems to believe everything. I have already been there. Why don’t you listen to the people who live here? No one would want a place like that built beside, across the street or in front of them. Are you nuts? Look at what has happened to other little towns in the county. Look at Moran, Elsmore, Gas, LaHarpe... Do you want Iola to end up like the other towns because people will move out before they put up with a council that won’t listen. A lot of people are trying to make Iola a better place. Why would the council do this to Iola? We have them in Humboldt and Moran, besides Iola’s. This decision just makes me ill. It is so ignorant.

H Scrutiny Continued from A1

Olivier Douliery/Abaca Press/MCT

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, center, watches as Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni and Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat, left, shake hands during a press conference after the start of peace talks in Washington, D.C., Tuesday.

H Talks Continued from A1 mitment that we cannot allow events that might divide us in a small way to distract from the common values and the common interests that unite us in big ways.� Kerry was also asked about progress on a bilateral security agreement with Afghanistan that would keep some U.S. forces in that country after 2014. “I am personally confident that we will have an agreement, and the agreement will be timely,� he replied. “And I am confident that the president has ample space here within which to make any decisions he wants to make regarding future troop levels.� While this is Kerry’s first visit to Islamabad as secretary of state, he has a long history of dealing with Pakistan as former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Sharif described him as “a wonderful friend,� and Kerry said, “I have had the pleasure of visiting (Sharif ’s) home and having a number of meals with him.� Before heading into a closed-door meeting, Sharif asked Kerry about his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, who was hospitalized after a seizure last month. “She’s doing better,� Kerry said.

River ‘spill’ confirmed as algae EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas health officials say a substance that was removed during the weekend from the Cottonwood River was an algae bloom. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment confirmed this week that the algae bloom gave off an oillike sheen that stretched from Hartford to Strong City. Officials at first thought the spill might be oil. Hazardous waste teams from Emporia and Topeka, as well as several county, state and federal agencies, responded to the report Sunday or were involved in testing the material. Lyon County officials said this week that the algae was non-toxic and should be dispersed by recent rains.

Sharif came to power in an election that marked the first time in Pakistan that a civilian government completed its full five-year term and transferred power in democratic elections. The country has a history of civilian leaders being overthrown in military coups. “This is a historic transition that just took place,� Kerry told U.S. Embassy employees. “Nobody should diminish it.� Senior administration officials traveling with Kerry told reporters that while relations with Pakistan have grown touchy in recent years, there is the prospect of resetting those ties with Sharif ’s government and working together on major issues — counterterrorism, energy, regional stability, economic reforms, trade and investment. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly discuss Kerry’s agenda. The U.S. wants to help strengthen the role of the civilian government in Pakistan, where the military long has been dominant, and wants Sharif to tackle rising extremist attacks inside his country. The prison break this week that freed hundreds of inmates raises serious questions about Paki-

stan’s ability to battle an insurgency that has raged for years and killed tens of thousands. Suspected Islamic militants killed at least 160 people during the new government’s first month in office. Sharif ’s government has not articulated an alternate strategy.

Washington says it needs to attack dangerous militants with drones because Pakistan’s government refuses to engage them militarily. Pakistan contends the drone strikes are a fresh violation of its sovereignty, and they have increased widespread anti-American sentiment in the country. The U.S. also wants Pakistan to pressure leaders of the Afghan Taliban to negotiate with Afghan President Hamid Karzai’s government, renounce violence and sever ties with al-Qaida. Officials in neighboring Afghanistan are demanding that Pakistan dismantle extremists’ havens inside Pakistan and push the Taliban to join the peace process. Both the U.S. and Afghanistan say that if attacks are allowed to continue, the region will never become stable. Pakistani officials say they do not control the Taliban, but Karzai’s government isn’t convinced. Drone strikes are another point of contention. 1-888-444-4346

spread anti-American sentiment in the country. The United States has reduced the number of drone attacks against militants in Pakistan and limited strikes to top targets. These moves appear to have appeased Pakistan’s generals for now, U.S. officials said. But some officials worry about pushback from the new civilian officials, including Sharif, who wants the attacks ended. There have been 16 drone strikes in Pakistan this year, compared with a peak of 122 in 2010, 73 in 2011 and 48 in 2012, according to the New America Foundation, a U.S.-based think tank.

ing an unusual amount of attention because it’s the first under a new law allowing the governor to name the court’s judges, subject to Senate confirmation. Under the old system, still in place for the Kansas Supreme Court, a nominating commission screened applicants and named three finalists, with no role for lawmakers after the governor’s appointment. Hensley said he expects Brownback to nominate Caleb Stegall, his chief counsel. Stegall’s name circulated as a leading candidate even before the selection process changed in July. Stegall wouldn’t comment Wednesday, but he applied for two previous Court of Appeals vacancies. Even some of Brownback’s detractors saw Stegall’s credentials as a former county prosecutor and lawyer in private practice as more than solid enough for the court, but each time, the nominating commission passed over him in favor of other finalists. “People do need time to be able to vet, in their own mind and on the record, the qualifications of this nominee,� Hensley said, suggesting that the Republicans’ supermajority on the Judiciary Committee and in the Senate make it likely that Brownback won’t have trouble getting the new judge confirmed.

ture is set to convene Sept. 3, and Brownback and other GOP leaders have said they want it to last only a few days. The governor called the special session to rewrite a state law allowing judges to sentence convicted murderers to at least 50 years in prison, following a U.S. Supreme Court decision last month raising questions about the statute’s constitutionality. But with lawmakers in session, the Senate will be legally required to consider pending appointments that otherwise would wait until the next regular session begins in January. King said he would convene the Judiciary Committee on the special session’s first day for a confirmation hearing on the new Court of Appeals judge and take “as much time as we need.� He said he’s confident that as soon as the appointment is announced, lawmakers from both parties will begin immediately to examine the nominee’s past. “This will probably be the most thorough confirmation hearing the state has seen in recent memory, as it should be,� King said. “There is absolutely nothing to the allegations that this nomination will be snuck through in any fashion.� The Court of Appeals appointment is receiv-

Indians open state with 11-1 rout By RICHARD LUKEN

AA State Tournament Wednesday’s games Concoardia 8, Wellington 0 Iola 11, Hays TMP 1 Ellis 1, Westmoreland 0 Sabetha 11, Pratt 2

ugh to

PRATT — Iola’s AA American Legion pushed all the right buttons to open the state baseball tournament Wednesday afternoon. The Post 15 Indians found their hitting groove early on, while starting pitcher Trent Latta showed few if any effects from an extended layoff. Iola steamrolled Hays TMP 11-1, setting up a Herculean winners bracket tilt tonight against Concordia, which defeated Wellington, 8-0. Iola (38-3) will start Nathan Whitcomb, while Concordia (23-1) counters with Nathan Gieber in what promises to be a dandy pitchers’ matchup. Whitcomb was an all-state pitcher for Humboldt High School and has signed to pitch next season for Neosho County Community College. Gieber was all-state in Class 4A and will pitch next season for Cowley Community College. “He’s a great pitcher, but we’ll be ready to go,” Iola coach Roland Weir said. First pitch is at 6 p.m. at Pratt’s Green Sports Complex. IN ORDER TO advance to face Concordia, Iola first had to contend with Hays starter Pierce Schippers’ assortment of breaking pitches. “We didn’t hit the ball particularly hard, but we did a good job of making contact, especially with two strikes,” Weir said. Iola put its first two batters on base in all four innings — the game was shortened to four innings because of the 10-run differential — and remained aggressive on the basepaths. Latta had a pair of RBI singles in the first two innings,

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Alex Gordon hit a two-out triple in the seventh inning and then scored the goahead run for Kansas City on an error by Minnesota, and the Royals won their eighth straight game with a 4-3 victory over the Twins on Wednesday night. The Royals are above .500 at the end of July for the first time since 2003. At 5351, they are two games over the break-even mark for the first time since May 17. They remained seven games behind Detroit in the AL Central race and 4½ games back of second-place Cleveland, the current holder of the second wild card spot. Jeremy Guthrie (11-7) won his third start in a row with his seventh consecutive appearance of at least six innings. Pedro Florimon homered in the fifth for the Twins, but he struck out with the bases loaded to end the sixth. Then in the seventh, with Gordon on third, the shortstop shuffled to his left to get his body behind a grounder up the middle hit by Eric Hosmer. Florimon failed to pick up the ball, though, as his momentum carried him past it. Gordon scored, and so did Hosmer one batter later on Billy Butler’s single off reliever Caleb Thielbar (1-1). Aaron Hicks took a bad angle toward Gordon’s drive off the center field wall, and the ball ricocheted past him to let Gordon get another base. Guthrie improved to 7-3 in his career against the Twins, including 3-1 this

season. He surrendered six hits, two runs and two walks in six innings while striking out five. The Twins started the sixth with three straight singles and tied the game on Chris Herrmann’s one-out walk. But Hicks popped out to second base, and Florimon fanned on three pitches. The Royals, who have the league’s second-best team ERA, have relied on their rotation for this midsummer surge. The starters have allowed 11 earned runs in 72 innings over the last eight games. Ryan Doumit and Trevor Plouffe greeted Kelvin Herrera in the eighth inning with doubles, slicing the lead to 4-3. Hicks added a one-out infield single. But Aaron Crow came in to strike out the last two batters. Greg Holland pitched the ninth for his 28th save in 30 tries. Joe Mauer took second base on a one-out single and a throwing error by shortstop Alcides Escobar, but Justin Morneau and Ryan Doumit struck out to end the game. The Royals are 9-3 against the Twins this season and 26-19 against the division. Twins starter Kevin Correia gave up 10 hits over six innings, but he struck out three without a walk and somehow limited the damage to two runs on an RBI single by Miguel Tejada and a sacrifice fly by Butler. Tejada was thrown out at home on a comebacker to the mound, Hosmer was thrown out at third on the sacrifice fly and Butler grounded into See ROYALS | Page B4

Italian squad defeats MLS all-stars By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A raucous crowd packed into one of Major League Soccer’s glitzy new stadiums to watch a team comprised of its best

players in an exhibition game on a picturesque late-summer night. All that was missing was the outcome fans desired. Italian powerhouse AS Roma, led by longtime star

Isaac Vink’s summer was capped Friday and Saturday with an appearance at the Mo-Kan All-State Games at Tiffany Hills Sports Complex in Kansas City, Mo. Vink, 13, was chosen for the all-star game based on his perofrmance for the SEK Indians, a traveling 13-and-under squad with a number of players from Iola and surrounding communities. Vink played as a pitcher and position player during the season. He will enter the eighth grade this fall at Iola Middle School.

Chiefs look to stay grounded ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs will call some running plays eventually, even if it doesn’t happen until the last week of training camp. Jamaal Charles has been assured of it. That doesn’t mean the Pro Bowl running back hasn’t been busy the first week of practice. After running for more than 1,500 yards last season in his return from a devastating knee injury, Charles now is getting a chance to showcase his versatility. He’s been catching plenty of balls out of the backfield while also lining up at wide receiver for new coach Andy Reid. “I’m not even worrying about running right now,” Charles said after Tuesday’s practice. “We’re focused on getting the chemistry down with the quarterback.” That may be more imSee GROUNDED | Page B4

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.

The Iola Register

H Grounded

Register/Richard Luken

Iola’s Levi Ashmore fields a ground ball Wednesday in the opening round of the American Legion AA State Tournament. Below, the Indians’ Derrick Weir slaps a two-run single in the fourth inning of Iola’s 11-1 win.

H Indians Continued from B1 But that was just a prelude to Iola’s knockout punch. Nine straight Iola batters reached base in the top of the fourth, including Derrick Weir’s two-run single, Jarred Latta’s RBI single and Drew Faulhaber’s single to plate two more runs. Aaron Barclay was next with run-scoring single. Levi Ashmore’s sac fly ended the barrage. Meanwhile, Trent Latta hit his stride after a walk, single and error led to Hays’ only run of the game in the bottom of the first. Heffern’s dandy catch of Ryan Schippers’ drive to center turned into a sacrifice fly for the Monarchs’ only tally. Latta retired the next 10 Hays batters in order to end the game. Latta allowed just the one hit in four innings, while striking out six and walking one in his first start since the end of the regular season July 8. He pitched two innings of relief in the KABA tournament July 13, and none since then. Iola was so dominant in the Zone 3 tournament last week that Weir didn’t need to use Latta on the mound.

in the backfield — but he also must read pass coverages and find open spaces down the field. “Yeah, it’s the most plays I’ve had to learn my whole life in football. It’s a lot of studying, a lot of focus, a lot of hearing what the quarterbacks are saying,” Charles said. “I have to learn coverage, man, cover 2, and all that stuff learning to play wide receiver.” Reid clearly thinks that Charles can handle the load. The longtime Eagles coach helped pioneer the use of the running back in the passing game, first with

Brian Westbrook and later with LeSean McCoy. In fact, Westbrook went five consecutive seasons with at least 50 grabs, and in 2007 caught 90 passes for 771 yards and five touchdowns. That year, Westbrook led the NFL in yards from scrimmage and was first-team All-Pro. “Jamaal is a big part of it,” Reid said. “He’s capable of doing the same things Westbrook did (and) McCoy did, as far as the passing game. He’s a legitimate threat with his speed, his route-running ability and his hands. He catches the ball very easily.”

man. Sporting KC defender Aurelien Collin recovered to get his foot on the ball, but Strootman still managed to guide it into the net. The goal took much of the zip out of the home crowd, which had been feverishly waving flags and pounding drums during its second All-Star game in two years. Major League Baseball staged its Midsummer Classic just across the state line at the Royals’ Kauffman Stadium last July. The two second-half goals by Roma only served to seal a joyless night for the MLS during an otherwise positive period of growth and progress. Stadiums are in the works for D.C. United and San Jose, and an expansion club will start play in New York in 2015. The Columbus Crew were sold to ambitious new owners earlier this week, and

Commissioner Don Garber announced at halftime Wednesday night that four expansion franchises will begin play by the 2020 season, bringing the total number of teams in the league to 24. There’s perhaps no better example of how far the league has come than Kansas City, which once played its games before a few thousand fans in cavernous Arrowhead Stadium. The team was sold to local owners in 2006, and they embarked on a dramatic rebranding of the franchise formerly known as the Wizards. They spearheaded the construction of one of the most glamorous soccer-specific stadiums in the country, built a feverish fan base and became one of the most successful teams on the field — the club has won two straight Eastern Conference titles.


“Trent did his usual thing — pitch great,” Weir said. “That layoff didn’t effect him at all.” The key to taking on Concordia will be to maintain pressure on the Blues’ defense, Weir said. “We did that today. We put pressure on their defense, we hit the ball, and we pitched well,” he said. “If we can continue doing that, we’ll be tough to beat.” In other tournament action Wednesday, Ellis edged Westmoreland, 1-0, and Sabetha thumped host Pratt, 11-2.

H Royals Continued from B1 a double play. David Lough was caught stealing, too. The streak helped the Royals keep their roster intact after the nonwaiver trade deadline. They even added some depth, acquiring Justin Maxwell from Houston to bring in a speedy

Continued from B1 portant for Charles than ever before. He’s always had good hands, but he’s never been called on to catch a lot of passes. Charles’s season high was 45 a few years ago, and most of those were dumpoffs and passes into the flat after he had lined up behind Matt Cassel. Now, Charles is running plays that are designed for him to catch passes from new QB Alex Smith, which means a whole lot more studying. He no longer has to learn only the blocking schemes and when to pick up blitzes — like he would if he lined up exclusively

though, noted the remaining possibility he could be dealt in August by clearing waivers. He’s in the final year of his contract.

Continued from B1 what had been a festive celebration of soccer in Kansas City. Kevin Strootman and Alessandro Florenzi each had a goal and an assist, and Junior Tallo also scored for Roma, the three-time Serie A champions. Omar Gonzalez of the Los Angeles Galaxy scored the only goal for the MLS side in second-half stoppage time. The MLS had been 7-2-1 against international opponents since the league adopted the current All-Star game format, the only losses coming to English Premier League club Manchester United. Maybe it’ll think twice about inviting Italy’s top teams. Most of a sellout crowd had barely found its seats at Sporting Park, the $200 million home of Sporting KC, when Florenzi sent a pass ahead to Stroot-
