Consistent rains soak Allen County

Register/ Bob Johnson

Nine straight days of rain totaling more than 7 inches have left Allen County’s soil saturated and sent many small streams overflowing their banks and over county roads. Above right, water gushes down the Neosho River west of town, high enough that the dam no longer is visible. Above left, Coon Creek races through town. At top, a pasture north of Iola is flooded. Emergency crews responded to Nebraska Road and 2000 Street late Friday afternoon to rescue Sarilou Wilks, 74, rural Iola, from the roof of her car after the car became stalled on a flooded low-water bridge. She was not injured.

Hayley Erbert dances during the competition.


Hayley Erbert, a young woman with Iola roots, has danced her way into the top 10 of one of America’s most popular competitions. Erbert, whose father, Jerry, lives in Iola, tried out for So You Think You Can Dance in November in Austin, Texas. She won a nod from judges and moved on to the next level of competition in Las Vegas. It seemed to be somewhat of a trend. Hayley impressed the judges enough to be selected for the top 34 competitors, who were flown to Hollywood, Calif. The FOX network flew all of the dancers each week for the competition, until 14 more dancers (seven men, and seven women) were eliminated from the show. Then, it was down to the top 20. Over the past several weeks, the competition has heated up, and now there are

only 10 remaining — Hayley is one of them. THE REGISTER caught up with Jerry for a quick update on her progress, and how they are dealing with the whirlwind of being on a nationallytelevised competition. “Last week was by far her best performance,” Jerry said of Hayley’s presentation on

Tuesday, which placed her in the top dancers. “That thing was awesome.” He has had the opportunity to visit with his daughter in California during the competition, but communication has been limited. “You really don’t have a lot of contact,” he said. “They are dancing 12 to 14 hours a day. It’s so hard to talk to her.” While in Los Angeles for filming, a kind security guard gave Jerry a memorable favor. He snuck his security pass to him so he could see his daughter while she was being interSee DANCE | Page A5

Works shares life-changing journey south By BOB JOHNSON

A month-long trip to Paraguay and Brazil was a lifechanging experience, Abby Works told Iola Rotarians Thursday. Works, a student at Kansas State University majoring in food science and pre-pharmacy, is the daughter of Iolans Fred and Judy Works. Her journey to South America was made possible through a $5,000 Chapman Scholarship, established by Mark Chapman, a K-State alum, for summer study by KSU students in a major field. With her interest in food and pharmacy, Works said her career goal was “to figure out how I can somehow marry these two interests to provide better health care to

the medically underserved through the use of food products to treat chronic health conditions.” In her scholarships application, Works proposed she participate in a Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH) clinic in Paraguay, “to see how a nongovernment organization delivers health care service to an underserved country.” The second part of her project, Works said, “has been to follow up and participate with (Iolan) Georgia Masterson in her Circles Out of Poverty program in Allen County,” which deals with poverty as a major factor in unhealthy lifestyle choices and limits health care access.

Testing at Chanute hospital continues CHANUTE — Results of tests to determine whether any patient contracted health problems from possible non-sterile colonoscopy equipment at Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center won’t be know for about six months. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment will release findings when all tests, including ones six

months from now, are concluded, the Chanute Tribune reported. Concerns are that a patient might have contracted hepatitis, B or C, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) during a colonoscopy procedure, because some scopes weren’t property sterilized. Sterilization concerns are with auxiliary water channels within three of six endo-

scopes used at the hospital. A KDHE spokeswoman said 244 patients potentially exposed, between Jan. 3 and July 5 of this year, were being tested. According to information given the Tribune, cleaning instructions were included with the devices, but NMRMC staff didn’t follow the manufacturer’s recom-

mendations because that function of the endoscope had not been used. A KDHE report released Aug. 2 said one new case of hepatitis C was found in Neosho County, but no new hepatitis B or HIV cases. KDHE did not comment on whether the hepatitis C case was in a patient who had a colonoscopy at the hospital.

Local family jump starts youth church program By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

Travis and Nikki Riley are bringing a new form of Christian fellowship to Iola, specifically for the area youth. Travis is youth and associate pastor at First Christian Church, Kentucky Street and Oregon Road. He and Nikki saw a need for a weekly program in the community. So, they organized Kids 4 Truth — a national program with which more than 300 churches are involved. “We want to do more than just teach them,” Travis said. “We want to train them.”

The program, free for students, starts on Sept. 4. Enrollment will remain open, but the Riles encourage it prior to the start date. Every Wednesday children will meet as a group from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Enrollment may be done at or by getting a form at the church office. Children, from 3 years old to eighth grade, will be organized into groups based on their age. The program will follow a curriculum of 12 church themes. “They’ll get deeper and deeper learning,” Nikki said.

Students will follow the program through a workbook, including questions and memorizing Bible verses. The Rileys said the program will give children a basis for what they believe. “It’s not about only believing something, but why they believe what they believe,” Travis said. Kids 4 Truth started in a church just outside of Kansas City, Mo., in 1999 and spread from there. For more information regarding the program, contact First Christian Church at (620) 365-3436 or at

‘Keeping iT Real’ is Wesley UMC’s focus By KAYLA BANZET

Wesley United Methodist Church will present its third annual “Keeping iT Real” event next weekend, over three days. “Keeping iT Real” is a free event that brings the community together for worship and fellowship. The event kicks off at the church, 301 E. Madison Ave., at 7 p.m. Friday with guest speaker the Rev. Dr. January Kiefer, a Methodist minister in Topeka. Jenel Eisenbart, in charge of the event, said Kiefer has a unique way of speaking. “She does storytelling instead of preaching to the audience,” Eisenbart said. “She takes stories from the Bible and relates them to each day.” A praise band also will be on hand Friday evening. The first night is entitled “Real Faith: Jesus in Me.” Following the service the United Methodist Women will provide refreshments in the Fellowship Hall. On Saturday at 6 p.m. the service is entitled “Real Family: Jesus in the Family” led by Kiefer. The Wesley Flames Youth Group will have a taco bar in the fellowship hall following the service.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Crawdad with a tear in its eye This week’s rain would have been a bittersweet occurrence when I was a kid. In the early 1950s summertime activities were pretty much whatever me and my little friends wanted to make of them. We didn’t have TV, the many electronic devices of today were beyond anything even Buck Rogers’ innovative creators envisioned and there were no organized recreation programs in Humboldt. Our parents, not far removed from the Great Depression and winning World War II, were concerned with our upbringing, but that was sandwiched around work-a-day lives and homemaking chores that didn’t have the benefit of today’s time-saving appliances. Dad worked at Monarch Cement, at a job physically demanding, and understandably wasn’t much in a mood to play games when he got home; besides there were homestead duties, such as tending the yard with a reel-type push mower. Mom was sequestered in the kitchen much of the day. We had three sitdown meals, every day, and washing was done in a two-step process, soak in suds in one tub, rinse in a second and squeeze the water out with a wringer. I had a role, daily taking kitchen scraps to the chickens and carrying out wash water. Consequently, we kids — the neighborhood was home to several of the same age — were left to our own devices. A half block that the owner let grow up with what we called horse weeds, become “the jungle” each summer. We made trails through the undergrowth and even built a few flimsy structures with cardboard boxes. We also had an area in

At Week’s End Bob Johnson

another neighbor’s yard where we constructed small underground fortifications, occupied by plastic soldiers. It was a confrontational game, with lead fishing sinkers the missiles we fired — thrown by hand — that had quite a devastating effect on matchbox bunkers covered with loose dirt. When it rained, we were forced indoors, which wasn’t as boring as it might sound in a world without TV. I read books. Sometimes in a summer I’d consume close to 100, including every science fiction novel I could find. The first of that genre, and the one that got me hooked, was “Forbidden Planet.” After the rain stopped, we immediately dashed outdoors and headed for “the ditch,” a rock-bottom slough that wound its way through east Humboldt. We’d float homemade boats, build dams when the water started to recede and, most fun of all, hunt for crawdads. It was quite the sport to see how big of a crawdad we could find, and then pick it up by its back without it painfully grabbing a hunk of skin. The real prize was a mommy crawdad, with a bunch of little ones under her tail. Our fun and games changed dramatically in 1957 when Humboldt’s swimming pool opened, boys found girls and vice versa and I’d like to think a good many crotchety old crawdads pined for the days of having to avoid capture by a rambunctious kid.

Egypt on the edge It’s hard to imagine things getting worse in Egypt, but they could. The generals who now call the shots and their handpicked civilian government have halted efforts to reach compromise with the Islamist supporters of the man they ousted — Mohamed Morsi, the country’s first democratically elected president. Instead, they have threatened to forcibly disperse thousands of pro-Morsi civilians from two sit-ins in Cairo. Such an intemperate response could end disastrously. Nearly 300 people have been killed in political violence since July 3, when the military overthrew Mr. Morsi. The government has carried out a sweeping crackdown against the Brotherhood, jailing Mr. Morsi, and blamed the group for inviting the crackdown even though the two main sitins, demanding Mr. Morsi’s reinstatement, are open and seemingly nonviolent. After working its backchannel ties to the army with little obvious effect, the Obama administration sent William Burns, deputy secretary of state, to Cairo to join a European Union representative and envoys from other Arab states in presenting both sides with sensible, face-saving proposals to calm the cri-

sis. The army, they suggested, would release some Brotherhood leaders from detention and allow the Brotherhood to participate in elections; in exchange, the Islamists would forswear violence. The generals and some civilian leaders, however, refused to budge, despite warnings that America’s $1.5 billion aid package could be at risk. It is difficult to understand why the army, which considers itself the guardian of the state, would think that crushing the Brotherhood could benefit the country. Egypt is existing hand-to-mouth on donations from gulf allies when what it needs is to rebuild a strong economy that provides jobs, housing and education to its people. The Brotherhood, having been tossed out in a coup, might legitimately wonder whether the democratic process can ever be trusted. But that process offers the only path to long-term stability. The U.S., which has gone too far in accepting the coup, must keep making the case for a political solution. With Europe and the Arab world, it must also be prepared to condemn the army and consider stronger action if more bloodshed occurs. — The New York Times

Snuggling up with Doris My brother and I aren’t big on giving gifts, but this past Christmas we decided to give it a shot. I spent a whole $20 on an electric beer sign (from some German brewery I’ve never heard of) — he loved it. He gave me his old guitar, which he affectionately named Doris. Doris is an old (probably around 1970s) Fannin acoustic guitar, which he bought for $35 off Craigslist down in Texas. It plays surprisingly well, and only has a few dings here and there. As a (very) amateur player, it was good enough for me. So, I started playing a few chords, learning some easy songs. Starting out it feels like your hand will never get the notes quite right, but over time it starts to come together. Before I knew it I was playing “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd in its entirety. Although, it wasn’t perfect. I noticed my girlfriend winc-

Steven Schwartz

ing as I missed notes and let the “twangs” fly as I suffered through the songs. Maybe I should get lessons, I thought. I called over to our local guitar shop, T&R Guitars, and spoke to Randy Bevard. He agreed to pencil me in on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. for a half-hour lesson. This week I took my first lesson, and things went well. We talked about what music I liked, and what my goals were with my new instrument. He taught me some fundamentals that I didn’t know and set me on my way for the next week of practice. I’m pumped.

Sometimes I don’t realize the opportunities I have in my life, to expand my horizons. We all have the opportunity to enrich our lives, and sometimes don’t take the chance. All it took for me was a quick phone call, and now I’m learning a new musical instrument. Sure, I’m no Jimi Hendrix at this point, but I’m having a good time. All it takes is that first step. Whether you want to learn a new sport, take up knitting and crocheting (I’ve been through that phase, believe it or not), learn an instrument or just learn how to change the oil in your car. I get caught up in work, watching TV and relaxing — sometimes I forget that life can just pass me by, I might as well make the most of it. Either way, I have something to pass the time on a rainy day. Doris and I are getting pretty close these days.

Special session will test leadership By MICHAEL A. SMITH Insight Kansas

Governor Brownback has called for a special session of the Kansas Legislature on Sept. 3, the first since 1995. At issue is the so-called “Hard 50” law, allowing judges to impose a 50-year prison sentence without parole or probation to those convicted of crimes deemed particularly heinous. Ruling on a similar Virginia law, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that juries, not judges should decide the sentences. Attorney General Derrick Schmidt wrote the governor to express concern that this ruling may affect more than two dozen cases pending in Kansas. A special, joint legislative committee has been formed, headed by Rep. Lance Kinzer (R-Olathe) to draft legislation fixing the “Hard 50” law and have it ready to move quickly. However, House Speaker Ray Merrick (R-Stilwell) and Senate President Susan Wagle (R-Wichita) may have their hands full, keeping a lid on restive colleagues’ desires to raise other issues. The most pertinent metoo concern will probably be dismissed quickly, because it is being raised by the badly outnumbered Democratic minority. Rep. Jim Ward and Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau, both D-Wichita, want the legislature to respond to another recent Supreme Court ruling. In Arizona v. Inter Trib-

al Council, the Court struck down an Arizona law requiring that a birth certificate be shown when registering to vote. Plaintiffs challenged the law and won on behalf of voters who had tried to register using a federal form created by the 1993 “Motor Voter” law, which requires no birth certificate. Ward and Faust-Goudeau contend

speed approval through the Senate in a few days, with little scrutiny. However, Hensley’s concern will probably be dismissed with little fanfare. By far the bigger headache for leadership comes from Kansas Right to Life President Mark Gietzen, who seeks to reintroduce the “fetal heartbeat” bill. The

Those who register using the federal form and no birth certificate can vote in federal elections but not state ones, creating a loophole that may save the Kansas law from unconstitutionality. that given this ruling, the special session would be a great time to scrap a similar Kansas law championed by Secretary of State Kris Kobach. However, Kobach counters that the Kansas law was written with this in mind. Those who register using the federal form and no birth certificate can vote in federal elections (for president and Congress) but not state ones, creating a loophole that may save the Kansas law from unconstitutionality. Others have their own agendas for the special session. Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley (D-Topeka) expressed concern that it will allow Brownback to quickly nominate a judge for the Court of Appeals and

bill in question would prohibit abortion once a fetal heartbeat has been detected, which would probably put the state before the U.S. Supreme Court to challenge the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling. Frustrated that the bill did not pass before the legislature adjourned this year, Gietzen sees the special session as a chance to finish the job. Brownback, Merrick, and Wagle are all anti-abortion. Yet, as leaders, their job is to keep the legislature on task: to say to colleagues, “I agree with you on this, but the special session isn’t the right time.” Can they do this effectively without losing their antiabortion credibility? The special session will put their skills to the test.

viewed, and snap a few photos. “That was really cool,” Jerry said. He said he gets to talk to Hayley briefly from time to time, and sends her text messages for encouragement before competing. The entire family, along with friends from across the country, have been following her progress throughout the show’s season. He said her biggest fan is right here in Iola — her greatgrandmother Dona Erbert. But, Jerry said none is more nervous than he is when he sees his daughter dance in front of the judges. “I’m nervous for her,” he said. “I get this lump in my throat, you know, you feel like you’re going to cry.” Although, with all of Hayley’s success, he and his family truly believe she can win the entire competition. “The way she’s been dancing, I think she can win it all,” he said. HAYLEY has been dancing since she was four, working on her craft daily. She attended Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, where her mother Debbie Schwartz


lives. Jerry said the competition is stiff on the show, and it’s only getting tougher. Nevertheless, he believes America has connected with his daughter. She has 6,874 followers on Twitter — users are consistently giving her messages of support. “Cannot wait to see @ Dance10Hayley on the SYTYCD tour... I hope I can meet her!! #inspiration,” one Twitter user wrote on Hayley’s account. Another wrote, “my thoughts whenever watching @Dance10Hayley, ‘my daughter will dance just like her someday..’” It seems she has America smitten with what her father calls “a downto-earth” personality. But still, no one is more proud than Jerry. He remembered seeing her talk to her fans in Los Angeles — particularly the little girls. It reminded him of how far she has come. “You’d swear to God they thought she was the queen of England in their eyes,” he said. “That was one of the proudest moments of my life.”

At the conclusion of her research, here and abroad, Works will write a series of papers about how it may have influenced or changed her perspective regarding classroom material at K-State. Works said she learned several things from experiences in South America, including: — Working in a VOSH clinic where she found regardless of the amount of service provided others, it will always be outweighed by benefits and rewards personally gained; — That Rotary International’s reach and impact are far greater than she imagined. — Revelations of what it is like to be a hosted guest in a foreign country.

Being in land-locked Paraguay and next to Brazil, Works said she wanted to fulfill an item on her “bucket list” and visit the largest South American country.

With the help of Potter and her mother, things were worked out. She found a temporary home with Rotarians in Brazil, who went beyond being accommodating, Works said. Her travels into Brazil included seeing the man who had been in Iola as part of the study exchange program. “Rotary is much more than service projects,” Works gushed. “It is really about building relationships.”

Indians win, but weather rules again Rain continues to plague Mid-States Regional By RICHARD LUKEN

PRATT — With weather like this, it’s only fitting that Iola remains on the winning path with its water-tight defense. The state champion Post 15 Indians played error-free baseball to open the AA American Legion Mid-States Regional Tournament Thursday evening. Their opponents from Viroqua, Wisc., did not. Three Viroqua errors, coupled with the Indians’ Trent Latta’s warhorse effort from the mound, gave Iola a 4-1 win. The victory puts the Indians in the winners bracket to face LaCrescent, Minn., which edged Grafton, N.D., 3-2 in its opening round affair. When the teams play again was the pertinent question. A second straight night of steady rain left Pratt’s Smoky Ford Field at the Green Sports Complex unplayable Friday. Plans were to resume the tournament this morning, but shortening the games to five innings in order to allow teams to play more than twice in a day. As of Friday afternoon, the Iola-LaCrescent game was scheduled to start this afternoon at 1 p.m. “It’s unfortunate to have this rain, because it looks like the teams out here are pretty evenly matched,” Iola head

IMS sports meeting scheduled Football and volleyball coaches of Iola Middle School, will host a meeting with parents of seventh- and eighthgraders planning to play the sports this fall. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Aug. 19 in the IMS commons area. Both parents and students are encouraged to attend. The middle school’s annual open house will follow at 6:30.

coach Roland Weir said. “It’d be nice to play this out on a dry field to see who comes out on top.” At any rate, Iola proved it can be tough to beat on a wet track, too. The Indians were flawless in the field, particularly up the middle, where second baseman Drew Faulhaber snared everything hit his way. “And we kept him busy,” Weir said with a laugh. IT WAS anything but easy.

Latta repeatedly worked himself out of jams with minimal damage. Viroqua pieced together six hits and seven walks against Latta, but could never come up with the clutch hit. He stranded 11 runners in his 134-pitch effort. Latta struck out Viroqua’s Brandon Mickelson with the bases loaded in the first to end that scoring threat. He then induced a fly out by his pitching counterpart, Mitch Stalsberg, with runners on first and second to end the fourth. Viroqua loaded the bases again in the bottom of the sixth before Latta retired third-place hitter Tyler Trautsch with a grounder to Faulhaber. Conversely, Iola had its hands full with Stalsberg, who

Below, Trent Latta delivers a pitch. had full command of his fastball and a wide assortment of breaking balls. “Neither team hit the cover off the ball, especially us,” Weir said. “Their guy is a great pitcher and was able to locate all four pitches. And we struggle against lefthanders anyway.” Iola was limited to three hits against the Viroqua southpaw, although Levi Ashmore’s leadoff single turned into a run after he advanced to second and third on wild pitches and scored on Mason Coons’ oneout grounder. Zack Trautsch, Viroqua’s leadoff hitter who reached base in all four plate appearances, tied the score at 1-1 on his single in the bottom of the third. Stalsberg was in cruise control until the top of the fifth. Faulhaber earned a one-out walk before Eric Heffern blasted a shot back up the middle that deflected off Stalsberg’s glove for an infield single. Ashmore followed with another grounder up the middle that turned into a fielder’s choice, moving Faulhaber to third. Errors on consecutive plays

turned the tables. Mickelson, Viroqua catcher, tried to pick Faulhaber off third base with Latta at the plate, but instead threw the ball into left field for a run-

Bolt takes center stage at world championships By PAT GRAHAM AP Sports Writer

Usain Bolt

MOSCOW (AP) — Anytime Usain Bolt steps into the blocks he makes for compelling theater. And track and field these days can use some drama that has nothing to do with drug tests. Doping scandals have left a cloud on the sport that Bolt can help lift with a run for gold at the world championships, which begin today. Track’s showcase event will be without plenty of headline names: Tyson Gay, Asafa Powell, Sherone Simpson and

Veronica Campbell-Brown have recently tested positive for banned substances. Yohan Blake, Bolt’s top rival in the 100 meters and the defending champion, is out because of a hamstring injury. Granted, in the best of circumstances, there aren’t many threats to Bolt in the 100. And about now the Jamaican’s biggest challenger may be the clock. “After the 2012 Olympics, I was telling people who weren’t into track and field, ‘Hold onto See BOLT | Page B2

your popcorn because next year is going to be even more exciting. We’re going to have the same people,’” American sprinter Justin Gatlin said. “Never in a million years would I think it would end up like this. I still think it’s going to be exciting.” In any case, it’s not as if Bolt won’t be pushed. After all, Gatlin beat him in Rome two months ago and is eager to show that wasn’t a fluke and he’s closing the gap on the world-record holder. These two aren’t exactly best of friends. They don’t really talk

much off the track, but there’s definitely a measure of respect. Hard not to respect the sprinter who has captured six Olympic titles and shattered world records in the 100 (his current mark is 9.58 seconds) and the 200 (19.19). “He’s done so much for the sport and in the sport,” Gatlin said. “People either want to see Bolt get beat or don’t want to see him lose. There’s pressure of always being perfect.” Blake fleetingly stole Bolt’s stage last year by beating his teammate in the 100 and 200 at the Olympic trials and by winning the world 100

title in 2011 when Bolt false-started. Had Blake been healthy, this would have been a good rematch. Gay would have been a worthy opponent, too, especially since he was healthy for the first time in quite a while. But the American, who won the 100 and 200 at nationals, failed an out-of-competition doping test. Powell won’t be in Moscow, either, after testing positive along with Simpson for a banned stimulant. “I want to line up against Yohan. I want to line up against Tyson. I want to line up against Asafa,” Gatlin said. “This

kind of takes a spark out of it a little bit.” He paused, contemplating his impending showdown with Bolt. “But now it’s like a real heavyweight bout, where you have two guys who aren’t the best of friends, ready to run against each other and rumble,” Gatlin said. Lately, Bolt has been the undisputed champion, captivating the crowd with his bravado and clowning around. When the gun sounds, he’s all business for less than 10 seconds before returning to his lighthearted ways. This race, with the final Sunday, has his full attention. He’s not overlooking anything — or anyone. “I am fit and ready to go!” Bolt wrote in a recent email. “Right

now my only focus is winning three gold medals at worlds.” Besides the 100, there are other intriguing plot lines: —Two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva of Russia wrapping up her career after the meet. Leaving on top won’t be easy with reigning Olympic champion Jenn Suhr of Churchville, N.Y., in the field. —Decathlete Trey Hardee attempting to defend his world title against Olympic champion and world-record holder Ashton Eaton, who was married last month in Eugene, Ore. —Brianna Rollins taking on Sally Pearson of Australia in the 100 hurdles. Rollins set an American record of 12.26 at the U.S. champi-

onships last month. —Mo Farah trying to capture the 5,000 and 10,000 by holding off training partner Galen Rupp.o —Carmelita Jeter defending her title in the women’s 100. —Allyson Felix attempting to recapture her 200 world title. Of course, anytime Bolt steps on the track, whether it’s in the prelims or the final or even for a curtain call, he is the undisputed star. “He realized what value he still adds to the sport. He realizes what an icon he is for us,” former sprinter Frank Fredericks said. “This is how he makes his living. I hope he continues to sprint and sees how far he can push his body. I hope he can push it a bit farther.”

brielson, who was high on his throw to first, allowing Ashmore to score. Heffern’s hustle accounted for Iola’s fourth run two innings later. His one-out grounder in the top of the seventh went through Gabrielson’s legs for Viroqua’s third error of the game. Heffern was still at first when Latta punched a ground ball single to right. Heffern, at the urging of third-base coach Sherman Ashmore, never stopped at third. He continued toward home, forcing a high throw to the plate and scoring without a tag. “Sherman is aggressive with his coaching, and we’re aggressive on the basepaths,” Weir said. “We’re going to force the action.” Stalsberg took the loss despite striking out nine in six innings and allowing just one earned run. WITH EIGHT teams

apparently evenly matched, the tournament may well hinge on the squad that avoids mistakes, Weir noted. The game was a nice diversion for the Indians, who have had to cope with rainy weather since arriving in Pratt. After all, storms a week ago meant sharing the state championship with WestmorelandRock Creek because the final day of action was washed away. “It was a good start for us,” Weir said. “The way last week ended left a bitter taste in our mouths. We’re hungry.” Thursday’s games were to have started in the morning, but were pushed back to the evening because of a drenching downpour the night before. The first of four games started at 6.

U.S. puts on brave face Russian and U.S. relations deteriorating By MATTHEW LEE AP Diplomatic Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States and Russia put on a brave face Friday on deteriorating relations, pledging to work together on shared interests even as they nursed frustration over deep differences on issues like missile defense, Syria and the case of NSA leaker Edward Snowden. Opening high-level talks just two days after the White House canceled a planned summit between Presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin, Secretary of State John

Kerry allowed that U.S.Russia ties had been complicated by “the occasional collision” and “challenging moments.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov also acknowledged the fractious state of relations but called on both sides to act like “grown-ups.” Both men maintained that U.S-Russian cooperation on even limited areas of shared concern is important. “The relationship between the United States and Russia is, needless to say, a very important relationship, and it is marked by both shared interests and, at times, colliding and conflicting interests and, I think, we are all very clear-eyed about that,” Kerry said as he and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel welcomed Lavrov and Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to the talks at the State Department. Noting that he and Lavrov are both former ice hockey players, Kerry said that they understood “that diplomacy, like hockey, can sometimes result in the occasional collision, so we’re candid, very candid, about the areas in which we agree but also the areas in which we disagree.” “It’s no secret that we have experienced some challenging moments and obviously not just over the Snowden case,” he said. “We will discuss these differences today, for certain, but this meeting remains important above and beyond the collisions and moments of disagreement.” Russia has minced no words in expressing its disappointment that Obama canceled

the summit, and Lavrov made it clear that Moscow had been prepared to sign agreements on trade and nuclear research and security had it gone ahead. “At least we in Russia were prepared to table our proposals to the two presidents,” Lavrov said. “Of course, we have disagreements. We’ll continue discussing matters on which we disagree calmly and candidly,” he said. “We need to work as grownups. And this is what we do. And we hope that this will be reciprocal.” Russia’s decision last week to grant temporary asylum to Snowden prompted the cancellation of the summit, but relations between Washington and Moscow had already been on a slide. The White House said there was no sign that progress could be made on significant issues at the summit. “Summits of leaders are, tend to be, designed around making progress on significant issues,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday. “And we had not seen that progress sufficiently on a range of issues to merit a summit.” U.S.-Russia discord had been simmering since Putin regained the Russian presidency more than a year ago. On returning to power, he adopted a deeply nationalistic and more openly confrontational stance toward the United States than the man he had chosen to succeed him as president in 2008, Dmitry Medvedev, whose tenure roughly overlapped Obama’s first term in the White House.

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

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

SPEED FREAKS A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves


New-age Gordon, happy with second. After a near-miss at Pocono, will Jeff Gordon ever win again? GODSPEAK: Not if these Hendrick Motorsports Gordon clones keep beating him. First it was Jimmie Johnson, and now Kasey Kahne is piling on. KEN’S CALL: Gotta figure there’ll be more, but David Pearson’s hold on second place (105 all-time wins) is looking quite safe for a while. Sunday’s race sponsor is Cheez-It. What are your top three all-time crackers? GODSPEAK: 1. Nut; 2. Shell; 3. Alabama KEN’S CALL: 1. The stately saltine; 2. Graham; 3. Barrel.


DENNY’S DONE We’re calling it. Denny Hamlin’s championship quest is over. It passed on Lap 15 of Sunday’s 400 at Pocono Raceway. Hamlin blew a tire, and his No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota smacked the wall. Game over. Hamlin finished last in the 43-car field and now sits 25th in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points. The hard facts show there are five regular-season races remaining and Hamlin, who has no wins, is 118 points behind 20th-place Jeff Burton. Unless Hamlin can locate a long-lost Houdini instruction manual on escaping a locked points trap, this steamer trunk will remain shut tight. Remember, this was not of Hamlin’s making. He fractured a back bone March 24 after getting into an incident with Joey Logano in California. The injury required Hamlin to sit out four races. “Just a very frustrating season,” Hamlin said after inspecting the carcass of his stock car in the Pocono garage. A season that, for all practical purposes, ended in the Pocono Mountains last Sunday.

He might look like a statesman, but Kyle Petty burns bridges.

Jimmie Johnson is so good this season, it is almost laughable. Even when Johnson blows a tire and comes home 13th, he gains championship points, which is what happened at Pocono. The five-time Cup Series champion blew the tire while leading, fought his way back to 13th and gained two points in the standings from last week. Johnson led 116 of the combined 320 laps at Indy and Pocono during the last two weeks and came up short both times. His pit crew let him down at Indy, and Goodyear let him down at Pocono, yet he seems to be toying with the competition. “I don’t know how, with all the trouble we had, that we salvaged a 13th,” Johnson said. “It was just a team effort. I’m very proud of everyone involved. Unfortunately, we had that flat after leading the race, but stuff happens. It’s racing.”

Is Petty bucking for an NBC deal? If so, let’s hope it works. Kyle is on a very, very, very short list of broadcast commentators who don’t mind saying what’s on their mind, even if it means stirring the pot. A few weeks after rattling Danica Patrick’s cage, he got Denny Hamlin all stirred up this past week. When NBC starts putting together its future NASCAR-coverage roster, Kyle would be a smart draft choice.

Bowling, crackers ... what’s next?

We’re in a stretch of races sponsored by products we might not associate with racin’. Last week at Pocono, the Bowling Proprietors of Association of America sponsored the Go Bowling 400 – the first of a two-year contract they hope will convince you to wear community shoes and embrace the fragrance of lane oil. This week at Watkins Glen, it’s America’s favorite little cheese-flavored cracker that brings us the Cheez-It 355.

GLEN’S ERAS Watkins Glen International has an interesting history of Cup Series drivers enjoying compressed success over its windy, 2.45-mile road course. For instance, Mark Martin won the event three straight years, 1993-95. From 1997 through 2001, Jeff Gordon conquered The Glen four times in five starts. In 2002, Tony Stewart took the baton from Gordon. He won five times from 2002 through 2009, including one race where he was wretchedly sick to his stomach (no, don’t ask for details). Now it looks like we are in the Marcos Ambrose era. The “Thunder From Down Under” has two career wins, both at The Glen the past two seasons. He can tie Martin’s and Gordon’s record of three straight on Sunday. Other guys who were minor surprises to win at the Glen: Geoff Bodine won in 1996 by employing a two-pit-stop-only strategy; four years later, Steve Park, who came up through Modifieds, won his first Cup Series race at The Glen.

Do these sponsorships work?

Hey, look how Johnsonville Foods stock took off after 2001’s Pork the Other White Meat 400. So, to be safe, if you’re in upstate New York, you might want to hoard some Cheez-Its. For what it’s worth, the Answer Man prefers his in tomato soup or crushed over a tuna casserole. Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR for The Daytona Beach News-Journal for 27 years. Reach him at

SPRINT CUP: Cheez-It 355 at The Glen SITE: Watkins Glen, N.Y. SCHEDULE: Friday, practice (Speed, noon and 4 p.m.). Saturday, qualifying (ESPN2, 11:40 a.m.). Sunday, race (ESPN, coverage begins at noon; green flag at 1:19 p.m.) TRACK: Watkins Glen International (2.45-mile road course) RACE DISTANCE: 90 laps, 220.5 miles

Winner: Marcos Ambrose Rest of the top five: Kurt Busch, Juan Pablo Montoya, Tony Stewart, Martin Truex Jr. Dark horse: Michael McDowell First one out: Denny Hamlin


Ricky Stenhouse Jr. vs. Juan Pablo Montoya: On the first lap, in the first turn, Montoya got into Stenhouse and crashed the rookie out of the race. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “These NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers need to learn not to mess with Danica Patrick’s man.”

Biggest disappointment: Jimmie Johnson Don’t be surprised if: Ambrose throws an elbow or two, as he wins his third race at The Glen.
