Libertarian files for ’14 election By JOHN MILBURN Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Bonner Springs woman has become the first Libertarian Party candidate to file for the 2014 Kansas governor’s race, a field the party’s chairman said Wednesday he hopes continues to grow. Tresa McAlhaney of Bonner Springs, chairwoman of the Wyandotte County Libertarian Party, announced Wednesday that she has filed

“We knew Tate was in Savonburg earlier and when we got the warrant, we checked there, but he had left,” Sheriff Bryan Murphy said. Allen County officers did obtain some information, including credit card and Tate’s cell phone numbers, that they passed on to federal authorities and which were helpful in his apprehension. Tate’s arrest in Colorado came after a short vehicle and foot chase by Colorado Highway Patrol officers, Murphy was told. He is the half-brother of Daniel Lee Waddell, a defendant in the attempted robbery of the Citizens Bank of Kincaid in March. Murphy said his officers had some contact with Tate in the past, but “nothing serious as I recall,” he said.


HUMBOLDT — Families and faculty of USD 258 packed into Humboldt High School Wednesday night to ask questions and learn more about the district’s new digital curriculum. K.B.

Back to school fun

Hand quilting takes time and patience but the intricate details are rewarding once the project is finished, especially for Judy McGraw. McGraw won grand champion for her quilt during the Anderson County fair this year — for the third year in a row. The quilt she entered took about six months to complete. During consideration at the fair, judges look for certain things in a quilt. “They look for workmanship and if the stitching is even or not,” McGraw said.

“They look for even quilting, the squareness of it and the design of the quilt.” The quilt that won McGraw grand champion has vibrant colors bursting from the cloth. Flowers near the border have dazzling bead work. McGraw said she gets ideas for her quilt designs from various places. “Sometimes I get inspiration from a magazine or quilt books,” she said. This particular quilt came in a kit. It had the fabric but McGraw had to design and See QUILTER | Page A4

Church hosts breakfast About 75 guests attended the annual Calvary United Methodist Church Women’s Mission breakfast Aug. 1. Pastor Gene McIntosh gave the invocation for the breakfast, prepared and served by men of the church. President Saundra Upshaw welcomed guests and gave an update on her husband, Paul, who is at Allen County Hospital for treatment to prepare for chemotherapy. Area churches represented were Ward Chapel AME, Humboldt United Methodist, Salem United Methodist, Wesley United Method-

ist and Trinity UMC, Colony, including its new minister, Dorothy Welch. Kim Romig read a poem, “Thank You Volunteers,� and presented each guest with a printed volunteer tribute. Tyler McIntosh from the Wesley youth group and Calvary’s Sherryl Scovill gave the program. McIntosh’s group went to Atlanta, Ga., where they worked at a boys and girls home. Scovill went with the Wesley Gorilla Team to Oklahoma City, where she worked in a home, where a grandmother needed a bedroom and bathroom for her grand-

children. She also mentioned working at an outdoor worship area. Upshaw gave special recognition pins to Cindy and Michelle Scovill, who have contributed much time to the church. For closing, Lissa Mentzer Manbeck sang a hymn and Upshaw thanked McIntosh, Sherryl and the United Methodist Men for the breakfast. The next UMW meeting will be at 1 p.m. Sept. 3 in Calvary Fellowship Hall. Evelyn Jordan will be the program leader and Nadine McClain and Jeanne Smith will be hostesses.

Kansas briefs Heavy rains continue in much of Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Much of soggy south central Kansas remains under a flood warning as more rain is forecast to fall into already full waterways. The National Weather Service says 5 to 6 inches of rain fell early Thursday in Clark and Ford counties. Several county roads are impassable, particularly near Kingsdown and Blooms. In Sedgwick, Harper, Sumner, Kingman and Reno counties, between 3 and 4 inches of rain have fallen since midnight, and another 2 to 3 inches




are possible. The high water closed about 40 campsites at the Marion Reservoir and park officials said reservations in the Cottonwood Point and Hillsboro cove are cancelled until Aug. 29.

School opening delayed by storm

ARGONIA, Kan. (AP) — Recent storms in south central Kansas will mean two extra weeks of summer vacation in one town. Officials in the Sumner County town of Argonia say consecutive storms blew off roofs and soaked classrooms in two school buildings.

Knight weighs another run for Wichita mayor

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Former Wichita mayor Bob Knight is considering another campaign for that office. Knight told KWCH-TV on Wednesday he’s been approached by several people encouraging him to run when current Mayor Carl Brewer leaves office in 2015. Knight, 72, served multiple terms as mayor between 1980 and 2003. He was also the Kansas commerce secretary from 1992 to 1995, and ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination for governor in 2002. Knight says he expects to make a decision about seeking the mayor’s office in the next few months.

Regulator sees big role for states LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas and other states must take the lead in improving regional transmission systems to increase the movement of electricity from renewable resources such as wind, according to a federal energy regulator. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission member David Moeller was visiting the northeast Kansas community on Tuesday to discuss prospects for renewable energy, The Lawrence Journal-World reported. Those prospects included developing a better system for moving power from wind turbines and other sources to consumers. Moeller was invited by state Rep. Tom Sloan, a Lawrence Republican, to meet with officials from other states and energy companies to

discuss improving transmission systems. Moeller and Sloan said the goal is to improve transmission grids so that wind power from rural areas like western Kansas can move to places where the need for energy is greater. “You have all that wind in western Kansas, and for years there was very little transmission between western Kansas and the load centers,� Moeller said. “It’s not unique to Kansas. Where the wind blows, there’s pretty much not a lot of energy load.� But Moeller said FERC doesn’t have the legal authority to regulate transmission grids, leaving it to states to take up that role. The FERC does have the authority over natural gas pipelines for environmental and safety issues.

Drinking Water Notice

The Allen Co. RWD 8 public water supply system violated a drinking water standard. Even though this was not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing to correct this situation. We are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During August 2012 and January 2013 we did not complete all required monitoring or testing for coliform bacteria and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time. We are routinely required to test for coliform bacteria no fewer than two times a month. Additional samples are required following a coliform-positive or rejected sample. A monitoring violation occurred because of failure to collect one of the routine microbiological samples required during August 2012 and January 2013. There is nothing you need to do at this time. Since it is our desire to provide the safest water possible to our consumers, we have taken the action of paying closer attention to our monthly sampling program and daily record keeping in order to prevent future violations. We will call our laboratory early in the month if we haven’t received bottles needed for samples. For information regarding this notice, please contact Allen Co. RWD #8 at 620-380-6153

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Privacy today seldom a given

SURVEILLANCE cameras are a fact of life in today’s world. On any day it virtually is impossible to drive through downtown Iola without being recorded,

which surely has put some second thoughts into the minds of would-be vandals and crooks. When Great Southern Bank was robbed a few weeks ago, images recorded by cameras in the bank showed several clearly distinct photographs of the perpetrator. That he hasn’t been apprehended isn’t because law enforcement officers don’t know exactly what he looks like, and likely enforces the thought that he was passing through town and may even have done similar crimes elsewhere. Also, outdoor cameras at the bank and elsewhere in the area tracked the robber’s movement before and after the crime, it just was that he was keen enough to park (assuming he had a vehicle waiting) where cameras lost his movement. TRUTH BE known, it

likely would surprise most folks to know how closely their movements in public are documented. Taking it a step further, federal intelligence agencies with tracking satellites have the capability to “see” just about anything anyone does the minute a person steps outdoors, which shouldn’t be a concern of those who toe the straight and narrow, as we all should. — Bob Johnson

Benefits questioned for laid-off workers About 1,500 Boeing workers laid off through June 2015 will be offered up to two and a half years of unemployment payments, health insurance subsidies, relocation subsidies and, for older workers, training grants. These are a level of benefits greater than ordinary insured workers, whose state and federal benefits total 54 weeks. There is no shame in taking a good deal if the government offers you one. But the policy question remains. The social obligations of government should be strongest for the poor, the sick, the very young and the very old. Boeing workers are generally of working age, healthy and well-paid. It is not clear why they should get a deal out of the unemployment system not available to most others. The legal reason is that these are trade-adjustment benefits for workers who lost jobs because of foreign competition or offshoring of work. Congress put special benefits into the law as a trade-off for approving trade agreements that allow more imports. Politically, it made sense at

the time. Economically, it never did. There is really no difference between losing one’s job because of competition from France or from Tennessee. The job is lost. The worker’s needs and options are the same, and the public support should be the same. Workers from scores of companies around the state receive trade-adjustment benefits, but they total less than 2 percent of workers receiving benefits statewide, which raises a question of fairness. Common sense says two workers with the same earnings history who are laid off at the same time should get the same benefits. There is also a question whether the extra benefits accomplish much. A 2012 study for the U.S. Department of Labor compared laid-off workers with trade-adjustment benefits with a similar group with ordinary benefits. Four years later, the group with ordinary benefits received less training, but they had found work sooner, were working about the same number of hours and earning more per hour. — The Seattle Times

Striking Olympic gold By FRANK BRUNI New York Times

Imagine this: it’s the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. A huge television event, watched the world over. The American Olympians join the proud march of nations. They’re our emissaries, our exemplars. And as the television cameras zoom in on Team U.S.A., one of its members quietly pulls out a rainbow flag, no bigger than a handkerchief, and holds it up. Not ostentatiously high, but just high enough that it can’t be mistaken. Another American follows suit. Then another, and another. Within minutes the flags are everywhere in the American delegation, subtly recurring bursts of color and of honor, a gay-rights motif with a message: we’re here in Russia to compete, but we’re not here in Russia to assent. We have gay sisters. Gay brothers. Gay neighbors and friends and fans and probably teammates, and we reject the laws of a land that deems it OK to arrest them for speaking their truth or us for speaking up for them. This silent show of solidarity would wordlessly mock recently enacted Russian legislation against so-called propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations, which, let’s be clear, doesn’t mean gay recruitment pamphlets, as if such literature existed. It’s more vague and potentially broad than that. It could mean something like “Modern Family.” It could mean logos and ribbons and, yes, flags: anything connoting pride rather than shame. Anything asserting that gay people aren’t miscreants, predators, trash. The law is an outrageous act of hatred in a country of nearly 145 million people that fancies itself a global leader and should know better. And as the American Olympians’ imagined rebuke of it sank in, the country’s authorities would be forced to stand by and seethe. Confronting the athletes would only heighten attention to what they’re doing. For the duration of the opening ceremony, before the eyes of the world, our values, not Vladimir Putin’s, would prevail.

Over the last two weeks, alarm over Russia’s anti-gay campaign has grown louder, beginning with a must-read Op-Ed article by the playwright Harvey Fierstein in The Times. And there have been increasingly urgent calls for Americans to do something about that campaign, which extends to adoption regulations and tourist restrictions. Fierstein has floated a boycott of the Olympics. There’s precedent. Meantime, gay bars in the United States and other countries have heeded a

armband, a bracelet,” as Greg Louganis, an openly gay diver who won medals for the United States in three Olympics, recently suggested. Maybe it’s something small stitched into the uniforms. Leaders of the advocacy groups Athlete Ally and You Can Play and the website Outsports, all of which specifically promote L.G.B.T. sensitivity among athletes, oppose a boycott. “History remembers the athletes who showed up,” Patrick Burke, a founder of You Can Play, wrote in a post for BuzzFeed.

As for an American boycott of the Olympics, it would punish the athletes who’ve been training and dreaming and sacrificing for years. It might redirect the conversation from how Russia treats gays to whether the United States overreacted.

plea from L.G.B.T. rights advocates to remove Russian vodka from their shelves, in the hope that economic pain will equal legislative pressure on Russia to repeal its anti-gay laws. Advocates have trained their ire on Stolichnaya vodka, or Stoli, in particular. But that focus exposes a flaw in the vodka boycott, well intentioned but imprecise. “While Stoli’s ingredients — wheat, rye and raw alcohol — are Russian, the vodka itself is distilled in Latvia and distributed in the U.S. by William Grant & Sons USA, an American subsidiary of a Scottish corporation,” a recent post on Time magazine’s website noted. As for an American boycott of the Olympics, it would punish athletes who’ve been training and dreaming and sacrificing for years. It might redirect the conversation from how Russia treats gays to whether the United States overreacted. And it would close off the kind of statement that American athletes have a thrilling opportunity to orchestrate. Maybe that statement isn’t a flag but “a visible pin, an

History would certainly remember American athletes who signaled their belief in the dignity of gays and lesbians, lending action to the sometimes hollow words that America serves as a beacon to the world, a city on a hill, a champion of human rights. History would also remember athletes from the many other countries that might be persuaded to follow our righteous lead. Imagine rainbow flags or comparable symbols not just in the American delegation but in the British, French, Argentine and South African ones. Imagine what that would say and how that would feel to a 14-year-old girl watching from rural Oklahoma, where she worries hourly about her attraction to other girls and its impact on her future. Or to a 35-year-old gay man in one of the many African countries where homosexual acts are punishable with lengthy prison sentences or even death. Or to a lesbian or gay Russian of any age. That’s an Olympic moment to rival any quadruple toe loop. That’s pure gold.

Quote of the day

“ Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.

— Peter Drucker, management consultant

Any senior peddling contraband Geritol may have to be a little more discreet in transactions meant to be consummated on the Allen County Elderly Services bus. Tuesday commissioners discussed installing a surveillance camera on the bus to record all that occurs on daily runs. While the temptation is to trivialize installation of a camera, the idea of having one aboard the bus makes good sense. That way there never will be any question about what may have occurred, if a liability issue arose. Commissioner Tom Williams, then sheriff, introduced head-mounted cameras for his deputies a couple of years ago and very quickly found advantage. Shortly thereafter, a person who questioned what a deputy said occurred, meekly left the sheriff ’s office after viewing a video of the incident. The same rationale could be used for a camera on the bus. Sometimes how people remember what happened is embellished or changes in a short period of time.

Jefferson Ave. She started her first quilt when she was young but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish it until many years later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing a lot of quilting in the last 20 years,â&#x20AC;? she said. She got her start quilting because of her mother, a seamstress

who sewed a lot of McGrawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing for her as a child. She is also part of a quilt guild that meets once a month at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church annex. Although there is a large number of participants in the guild, very few still sew quilts by hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be great for the next generation to learn it so doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become a lost art,â&#x20AC;? McGraw said. For those who want to begin quilting McGraw has a few tips for beginners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Start out with a simple pattern,â&#x20AC;? she suggests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start out with anything too big or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get discouraged.â&#x20AC;?

Frankenfish caught; shark found in subway SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Virginia man who caught a fish known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankenfishâ&#x20AC;? has set a world record. Caleb Newton hooked the 17-pound, 6-ounce northern snakehead in a creek in northern Virginia during a fishing tournament June 1. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankenfishâ&#x20AC;? gets its nickname because of its appearance and adaptability. The invasive species native to Asia is able to breathe air and survive in very shallow waters or mud. The Free Lance-Star reports the International Game Fish Association confirmed the record catch. It beat a snakehead caught in Japan in 2004 by 2 ounces.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Did a fan of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shark Weekâ&#x20AC;? get carried away? New York Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transit authority says a conductor found a small dead shark aboard a subway train in Queens on Wednesday. The conductor asked passengers to leave the car and closed it off. The train continued to the end of the line, and then a supervisor placed the shark in a garbage bag and put it in the trash. Photos on the blog Gothamist depict the shark on the subway. It appears to be about 4 feet long, has a cigarette in its mouth with a fare card and Red Bull can nearby.

H Digital Continued from A1 schools in the nation have benefited from the curriculum. He told about students in a classroom who worked together on a math concept. Each attacked the concept with different numbers, but followed the same steps to arrive at answers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just grab the worksheet off the smart kid and copy the answer,â&#x20AC;? Criss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were learning individually and all together.â&#x20AC;? The district has purchased a HP laptop for every student and teacher. Criss explained that the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s information technicians have all the laptops set up and ready to go for the school year. Internet access has been beefed up to deal with the preponderance of activity digital learning will bring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are anywhere within a block of the school you could probably even pick it up,â&#x20AC;? Criss jokingly said about the wireless-access Internet. MOLLY


a specialist with Pearson, showed parents

how the program works. She showed a YouTube video entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you know?â&#x20AC;? The video gives statistics of how fast the digital age is growing. Spalding demonstrated how an assignment works, with a video in a specific subject. In the classroom, once the video is completed students must answer questions in a digital journal. She also showed a section called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vocabulary Central.â&#x20AC;? Students will be able to test their knowledge of vocabulary by learning definitions in flash cards, music or trivia games. Spalding also told parents about the Humboldt digital curriculum website, www.usd258. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a tab for parents on the site,â&#x20AC;? Spalding said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents can call the help desk from there.â&#x20AC;? The parents tab will give parents support when their child has a question or technology issue. PARENTS were able to ask questions at the end of the conference. One question concerning parents is keep-

ing students off of websites they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be on. Criss said that the school had purchased software programs to limit site access. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have software that shows each studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s screen on the instructors screen,â&#x20AC;? Criss said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So if a student is on a site they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the teacher can text them on their computer to get off the site.â&#x20AC;? Families who do not have Internet access at home will still be able to accomplish homework. Students will be able to download material and work with an off-line option, then when they return to school they will upload it to where it needs to go. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s media lab also will be open until 8:30 each night for students. Beth Barlow is a Humboldt parent with a son going into seventh grade and a daughter in first grade. She thinks this new program will be great for students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think its awesome,â&#x20AC;? Barlow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will keep them challenged by staying in

That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a concern with just a laptop to carry. Criss asked parents for â&#x20AC;&#x153;patience, patience, patienceâ&#x20AC;? in the first year.

He noted there would be informational nights for parents throughout the year, to give them progress updates and to answer any questions that might pop up.

Bullpen shines, Gordon erupts in Royals win By BOB DUTTON

The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, MO. (MCT) — A Wednesday night that initially focused on Danny Duffy’s return to the big leagues turned into a statement performance by the Royals’ bullpen in a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Duffy lasted just 3 2/3 innings in his first big-league appearance since leaving a May 13, 2012 game in Chicago because of elbow pain later diagnosed as a torn ligament. That led to Tommy John surgery. Once Duffy exited, the Royals turned to their bullpen and got 5 1/3 scoreless innings from Louis Coleman, Tim Collins, Aaron Crow, Kelvin Herrera and


Greg Holland while their attack rallied for the victory. The best bullpen in the league? “Yeah, and I feel we’re just now really clicking as a whole unit,” Holland said. “We’ve been good all year, but we’ve got guys who can be really dominant. It showed today.” Wednesday’s performance lowered the unit’s ERA to 2.80 and that — look it up — is the best in the American League. “One guy does well,” Crow said, “everyone else wants to do well, too. Duffy had a high pitch count, so we knew a lot of guys were going to get used. I think evSee ROYALS | Page B4 Register file photo

Iolan Jerrik Sigg, who batted .355 for the Allen Community College Red Devils during his freshman campaign, earned all-Walter Johnson League honors for the Valley Center Diamond Dawgs this summer, helping lead the squad to the National Baseball Congress World Series. He returns to ACC for the upcoming school year.

The Kansas City Royals’ Brett Hayes, middle, is greeted in the dugout after scoring in the third inning against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday at Kauffman Stadium.

Jerrik Sigg, a standout athlete for Iola High School and now Allen Community College, made his mark over the summer for the Valley Center Diamond Dawgs, a baseball team comprised of college players from across the country. Sigg, who manned center field for the Diamond Dawgs, earned all-Walter Johnson

League recognition. With Sigg in the lineup, Valley Center went 20-14 and qualified for second week of the National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series in Wichita, considered the most prestigious amateur baseball tournament in the country. The Diamond Dawgs were eliminated from the competition Tuesday afternoon in a loss to San Luis Obispo, Calif.

Even in defeat, Valley Center manager Pat Hon cited Sigg’s play in the outfield as a highlight. “Jerrik had a spectacular catch in the game,” Hon said. Sigg batted .360 for the Diamond Dawgs, with 54 hits, 31 runs, seven doubles and 16 RBIs. He stole 11 bases in 13 attempts. See SIGG | Page B4

Reports: College stars’ autographs easy to find By RALPH D. RUSSO

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki (81) runs after catching a pass in front of Chiefs cornerback Dunta Robinson (21) during practice at Chiefs training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Mo., this week.

KC banks on more tight end help AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The top tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs a year ago currently resides third on the depth chart, trailing a veteran newcomer and a rather unheralded draft pick. That alone is illustrative of a couple points. First, the Chiefs didn’t get a whole lot of production out of the position last year, when they fielded one of the worst offenses in the NFL. And second, new coach Andy Reid intends to get a whole lot more out of it this season, perhaps to take some of the load off his wide receivers. That’s why he refused to stand pat with Tony Moeaki this offseason, paying big money to lure free agent Anthony Fasano to Kansas City and then spending a third-

“ It’s a big group, a physical group and a group, I

think, that is really balanced for tight ends. I mean that as far as run and pass. A group that can really block and hold their own but be really some weapons in the pass game as well. — Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith

round draft pick on Travis Kelce. All three are expected to contribute to the Chiefs’ revamped offense beginning Friday night, when they open their preseason schedule in New Orleans. “It’s a big group, a physical group and a group, I think, that is really balanced for tight ends,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. “I mean that as far as run and pass. A


group that can really block and hold their own but really be some weapons in the pass game as well.” That may prove more valuable than blocking in Reid’s modified West Coast offense. Jamaal Charles is certain to get plenty of carries, so blocking will remain important for the tight ends. But the ability of all three to stretch defenses See CHIEFS | Page B4

NEW YORK (AP) — A simple search on eBay reveals Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is far from the only college football player whose autograph is for sale. Pick a star and you can find memorabilia with Johnny a supposedly Manziel verified signature. South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney. Ohio State’s Braxton Miller. Oregon’s De’Anthony Thomas. Louisville’s T e d d y Bridgew a t e r. Alabama’s AJ McCarron. The list goes on and on. The difference is ESPN has reported the NCAA is investigating whether Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, got paid to sign autographs, which would violate amateurism rules. That has led to other schools being asked questions about whether their players earned money for signatures. If the allegations against Manziel, made by unidentified sources to ESPN, are proved true by the NCAA, his eligibility for the coming season could be in doubt as well as his status as a Heisman winner. ESPN reported that a top

autograph authenticator had authenticated nearly 1,000 Manziel autographs. Brandon Steiner of Steiner Sports, which is the official collectible and memorabilia company of the NBA, the New York Yankees and Notre Dame, among others, said his company does not do business with college athletes. He said Manziel would likely be able to sign a contract with a collectibles company of at least $100,000 after he went pro. “I know there is a vibrant Heisman Trophy collectible audience out there,” he said. A market flooded with Manziel autog raphs could cost him money later, Steiner said. “It creates market confusion and takes a lot away from the category,” Steiner said Wednesday. Other college athletes might want to take note. Two sports websites — and — found what appeared to be dozens of authenticated items signed by Clowney online, and that led to questions for South Carolina officials. Associate athletic director Chris Rogers said Wednesday the school’s compliance office has looked into the Clowney autographs on eBay and found no violaSee MANZIEL | Page B4

Treatments for lipoma needed Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health Dear Dr. Roach: I am a 75-year-old male with a nearly spotless medical history. I have been diagnosed with a benign 10-cm lipoma located on my neck. The surgeon acknowledges that an excision would be difficult, taking perhaps two to three hours and not without risks to nerves and blood vessels. Are there any other treatments available? — T.K. Answer: A lipoma is a benign tumor of fat cells. These are treated if they are cosmetically important, cause pain or if their diagnosis is unclear. Liposuction is another alternative. It sounds like your surgeon is trying to give you a warning that you should heed.

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.

Jerrik Sigg, center fielder for the Valley Center Diamond Dawgs, bats this week in the National Baseball Congress World Series in Wichita.

H Sigg groove on the baseball field. He batted a robust .355 for the Red Devils with two home runs and 23 runs. The NBC World Series has been a staple of Wichita summers since 1931, and has featured a number of baseball greats, such as Satchel

Paige, Ozzie Smith, Dave Winfield, Joe Carter, Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds and Whitey Herzog. A number of other NBC alumni still are in the Major Leagues, including Albert Pujols, James Shields, Michael Young and Alex Gordon.

eryone was ready to go.” Holland worked the ninth inning for his 30th save, including his 23rd straight successful conversion. Coleman, 2-0, got the victory after stretching his seasonlong scoreless streak to 161/3 innings. The Royals did enough at the plate, too, in rallying from a 2-1 deficit against Minnesota starter Sam Deduno, who had dominated them in his brief career — allowing just two earned runs in 191/3 previous innings. “He’s had our number,” designated hitter Billy Butler said. “He’s got a lot of movement on his ball, but we made him come into the zone. If he was going to get us out, get us out in the zone. “We just made him work, and he had a lot of stressful innings.” The Royals nicked Deduno, 7-5, for four runs and 12 hits in 5-plus innings. Alex Gordon tied the game with a leadoff homer in the fourth before Alcides Escobar capped a two-out rally later in the inning with an RBI single. Lorenzo Cain added an RBI single in the fifth. Butler and Gordon produced the final run by hitting successive one-out doubles in the seventh against reliever Caleb Thielbar. The victory represented a bounce-back effort for the Royals after Tuesday’s 7-0 loss. It was also their 15th victory in 19 games since the AllStar break and boosted their record to 58-53. Manager Ned Yost said he anticipated the possibility of a long night for the bullpen because Duffy, even before his injury, had a history of running up his pitch count early in games. Specifically, Yost said he rode James Shields for six innings in Tues-

Clowney, Bridgewater and Miller enter the season has prime contenders for the Heisman. Manziel became the first freshman to win it last season. It’s unclear if an NCAA violation would cause the Heisman trust to reconsider Manziel’s victory. Heisman Trust’s rules state: “The recipient must be in compliance with the bylaws defining an NCAA Student-Athlete.” “The Heisman Trust never comments on speculation,” Heisman spokesman Tim Henning said Wednesday. Reggie Bush’s 2005 Heisman Trophy was later vacated after the NCAA found he had received improper benefits during his winning season.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Jerrik this summer,” Hon said. “He’s improved as much or more than any other player we had this summer.” Sigg was a cracker jack athlete in football and basketball in high school, but hit his

tions had occurred. “The websites that we’ve looked at and the pictures and autographs and items that we’ve found over the last academic year, we’ve not had any issues to suggest that anything impermissible had occurred,” Rogers said. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said school officials have determined Miller had not profited from the numerous items found online with his signature. Smith said the quarterback signed many autographs at a Big Ten preseason kickoff luncheon. Presumably fans or memorabilia brokers then went and sold items they got autographed for free. “We’ve already looked

at it,” Smith said. “There’s no issue there.” Louisville came to a similar conclusion. “We are aware of many of the items for sale online that have been autographed by several of our studentathletes with remaining eligibility. As we are required to do by NCAA rules, we regularly review these items and send correspondence to the seller(s) requesting they remove the item for sale,” the school said in a statement. “We have and continue to educate our student-athletes that it is not permissible to accept any type of compensation for their autograph or the sale of memorabilia. We have spoken with Teddy Bridgewater and we are comfortable that no violation has occurred.”

day’s blowout loss to protect his relief corps. “I wanted to have a fresh bullpen knowing that this might be a possibility,” Yost said, “and that we could protect a one- or two-run lead from the fourth or fifth inning on. That’s exactly what happened.” There were some anxious moments in the closing innings. Herrera, wobbled a bit through the eighth after a leadoff walk to Chris Colabello and a one-out walk to Trevor Plouffe, which brought the tying run to the plate. Herrera struck out Oswaldo Arcia but, facing Clete Thomas, threw a wild pitch that moved the runners up. The threat ended when Thomas grounded to third. That came after Crow worked around trouble in the seventh inheriting a 4-2 lead in the seventh from Collins with one out and nobody on. Brian Dozier reached on a single through third baseman Mike Moustakas. Dozier stole second and went to third when Jamey Carroll single to right, but Crow wiggled free when Justin Morneau grounded into a first-short-pitcher (3-61) double play. The Royals then extended their lead later in the inning on one-out doubles by Butler and Gordon against Thielbar. Gordon’s double was the 200th of his career. As for Duffy ... there were some encouraging moments. He recorded seven of his 11 outs on strikeouts, and he limited damage to two runs despite allowing six hits and two walks. “I was able to battle through 3 2/3 (innings),” he said, “but that’s just not acceptable for a starting pitcher. I can make all of the excuses I want, but I won’t. I have to get better.” When that next time

will be remains uncertain. Yost said Duffy will start again but didn’t offer specifics, although the best bet is he will start a week from Friday in a doubleheader at Detroit. “Electric stuff,” Yost said. “A little overhyped (Wednesday) at times. He struggled with command, but it was a good first step for him. A lot of pitches. . . . When he got hurt, he was still learning how to harness his adrenaline. “He was overthrowing at times. He lights up the gun. He’s a young guy. Once he learns how to harness that adrenaline, he’s going to be a really nice pitcher.”

will be counted upon heavily given that Kansas City is unsettled and largely unproven beyond Dwayne Bowe at wide receiver. Besides, in an increasingly pass-happy NFL, it’s become trendy to use tight ends as big, burly targets down the field, rather than as brutish blockers on the line of scrimmage. Reid did that with Brent Celek in Philadelphia, and guys such as Jason Witten of the Cowboys and Jimmy Graham of the Saints have brought a bit of glamour to a once-unsexy position with their pass-catching ability. “The whole offense in general can take the pressure off of everyone,” said Kelce, who is No. 2 on the Chiefs depth chart behind Fasano. “The offense is so friendly in terms of making it easier on guys with their hands on the ball. That being said, I think we take pressure off the receivers.” Chiefs tight ends managed 44 catches for 587 yards and two scores out of the position. By comparison, there were 13 tight ends in the NFL who had more yards receiving last

season, and 22 who had more catches than the Chiefs’ tight ends combined. Witten alone had 110 catches for 1,039 yards, nearly double what Kansas City managed to produce in 2012. Hence, the revamped look at the position this season. Fasano caught 41 passes for the Dolphins last season, and Kelce showed during his senior season at Cincinnati that he could be a reliable downfield threat.

Throw the injury-prone Moeaki into the mix and the result is an intriguing and potentially dynamic group of tight ends. “They’re very athletic. They’re smart guys. It really gives us some matchup opportunities being able to have three guys to stretch a field,” Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said. “It can be a benefit for us, and we’re really excited to have them here.”
