Weather slows U.S. 54 work

Construction equipment sits idle on U.S. 54, as heavy rains have slowed work.

Heavy rains bog down construction process By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

Although recent heavy rains have slowed work along U.S. 54, KDOT Engineer Darrin Petrowsky says construction deadlines have not changed. Removal of pavement began three weeks ago through LaHarpe for a full-depth restoration of the highway. Koss Construction, the primary contractor for the project, has set up traffic diversion for construction along the route. Petrowsky said heavy rains have slowed the work, mainly due to access. He said the waste created by the pavement removal needs to be dumped, and many of the heavy trucks can not access the waste drop-off points. “Concrete pavement has to be put somewhere,” he said. Although the waste removal is an initial concern, he also said the rains can delay cure times for the subgrade layer of the road — the dirt layer underneath the pavement and aggregate base. A fulldepth restoration requires removal of the pavement, aggregate base and top six inches of subgrade. “It just takes longer to get it dried back out,” he said, and the workers may need to “rework” the layer after rains to help dry out the material. Construction along U.S. 54 inside Iola

city limits was scheduled to start two weeks ago, one week after construction began in LaHarpe. He attributed the delay to weather yet again, but believes the process should start again soon. “The original plan was to have some pavement out of there by now,” Petrowsky said. Construction crews will take about three days to lay out See CONSTRUCTION | Page A6

Despite vocal objection from several attending Monday night’s meeting, the Iola City Council officially passed a motion to rezone the property at 1002 N. Kentucky from R1 (single family) to R3 (multiple family.) The rezoning will allow Neighborhood Senior Living to build a 19,000 squarefoot, 26-unit assisted living facility on the land. Rezoning was approved on July 22 by the council — following two hours of heated resistance from attendees — and Monday’s motion officially passed the ordinance. “I hear the neighbors, I hear their concerns,” council member Jon Wells said. The motion was passed six to one, with Beverly Franklin abstaining from a vote. Ken Hunt, Mary Ann Dvorachek, Dottie White, Judy Snavely and Angie Linn each appeared before the council one last time, to plead their case against the rezoning. “I’m not sure they deserve our trust,” Dvorachek said of the company. She cited concerns over the size of the structure, and what sort of impact it would have on the neighborhood. She and her husband visited five different facilities owned by Neighborhood Senior Living across Kansas. In the end, the council saw the concerns as unwarranted, believing similar concerns would be raised in any location the assisted living facility would seek out. See REZONING | Page A6

Humboldt OKs larger floorplan By BOB JOHNSON

HUMBOLDT — USD 258 board members approved construction of a four-bedroom, two-bath house by Humboldt High’s building trades class. It will be the largest undertaking ever by the students, at nearly 1,700 square feet, and will be built at 1317 Cherokee, near where two other houses were constructed by students. Supt. of Schools K.B.

Criss told board members he thought the larger house would sell quickly. “We were told (with previous ones) they would have been bought right away if they had had four bedrooms,” Criss said. He also mentioned the possibility of a basement, which board members rejected. Board member Sandy Whitaker, who deals in real See HOUSE | Page A6

Grant would enhance Salon gives back-to-school special rental opportunities Vanessa Riley gives Taelyn Maley a free haircut at Couture Salon and Boutique, Gas.


HUMBOLDT — Humboldt Council members approved application for a Community Development Block Grant that would enhance the town’s housing stock. The grant would pay 75 percent of improvements to privately owned rental prop-

erties. Susan Galemore, Southeast Kansas Regional Planning Commission, will help with application for a grant of $170,000 from the Kansas Department of Commerce. Property owners — six having 10 properties have been identified — would put up another $45,000. The planning commission’s stake in the grant See GRANT | Page A2

GAS — Vanessa Riley and Kristen Dreher put their talents to work for area school children Monday. The two stylists gave free haircuts as a back-to-school special at Dreher’s Coutour Salon and Boutique. By day’s end, 15 haircuts were provided. “This really helps a lot,” said Angie Maley, as her

daughter, Taelyn, 11, was getting a needed trim by Riley. Taelyn will attend fifth grade at Jefferson Elementary School. Angie Maley and her husband, Jason, have four children who will begin school later this week. “It’s a terrific deal when you have this many children,” Angie said. Preschool, kindergarten, sixth- and ninth-grade 75 Cents

students will report to Iola schools Thursday, a day ahead of others in the district to give them a chance to orient to new surroundings. Classes elsewhere in the area start this week and next. All students start in Yates Center and Le Roy on Thursday, while Crest (Colony-Kincaid) classes start on Friday. At Humboldt and Moran, the first day of school is Aug. 22.

Humboldt girl is still missing some extenuating circumstances within the girl’s family. The girl allegedly has been missing since July 16. She is described as 5-foot-4 and 145 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Dillow asked anyone with information of her whereabouts to contact Humboldt police officers at 620-473-2341.

Volunteers respond to lawman’s needs if the roof was not repaired. Local builder Michael Abendroth responded when he learned of Roney’s problems, and last Wednesday 35 volunteers showed up — after Roney had left town for a few hours. When he returned about 4:30 that afternoon, the work was done. “I was totally overwhelmed,” Roney told the Republican. “It was one of those deals where all I could do is stand there and cry.”

Neosho County gets new commissioner CHANUTE — David Bideau was selected by Republican precinct members to fill a vacancy on the Neosho County Commission. Bideau, a Chanute attorney and brother of Ed Bideau, also an attorney and Ninth District state representative, will replace Jay Kingery, the

Chanute Tribune reported. Kingery resigned form the commission in July, so he could move to Oklahoma to care for his ailing mother. Bideau told the Tribune he thought the commission should have a more business-oriented approach, with emphasis on economic growth.

Assets of Parsons companies seized PARSONS — Kansas Department of Revenue agents and Parsons police officers seized the assets of two companies here last week. Kanza Construction and Kanza Services owed $1.15 million in state sales and withholding taxes, the Parsons Sun reported. According to Jeannine

Korda, KDOR spokesperson, all known bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory and personal property belonging to owner Steve G. Hutchinson were seized. Tangible assets will be sold at auction. Assets seizure is the final step in efforts to collect taxes owed the state, the Sun reported.

Continued from A1 would be its management. “You have terribly stiff competition,” Galemore cautioned. However, Councilman Jerry Stephens said, “nothing ventured, nothing gained.” Provisions of the grant include improvements to foundations, roofs, electrical systems and plumbing, but no cosmetic features, Galemore said. Also, once completed units must be offered to low- to medium-income families, which would include most of those working in Humboldt. For Kansas, a family of four is considered low income at $44,150 by federal standards. “It’s a win-win for us,” said Mayor Nobby

Davis. “We’re not out any money.” City Administrator Larry Tucker said members of the Housing Action Team continued to look at ways to increase housing opportunities in Humboldt. “A survey found that 35 percent of the people who drive into Humboldt to work would move here if housing were available,” he said. The team’s latest strategy, he added, is to look into grants to rehabilitate older homes. IN TWO expenditure items, council members approved purchase of a 2013 Ford four-wheeldrive pickup truck for the police department, for $20,708.03 through the Kansas Partners Program, which makes vehicles available to

governmental agencies. Chief of Police Brian Dillow said the truck retailed for $34,000. It will replace a 2005 Dodge pickup with 88,000 miles, which will be retained and used in the city’s code enforcement department. Repair of the old city hall’s roof will cost $3,750, with most of the money coming from insurance proceeds from when roofs of city buildings were damaged by storms. Tucker said he city recently received an additional $17,451.49 from its insurance carrier, Personal Service Insurance. The old city hall is used as a business incubator, with Weide Funeral Services its current occupant. The company pays no rent the first year and only a

portion of utilities. Tucker said several leaks showed up in the old city hall’s roof with recent rains. Chip-and-seal improvements will be done to some streets, probably Eighth and Pine, Tucker said, with just $50,000 available for street maintenance. Allen County helps each year with the work. WITH NO public comment, council members approved the city’s 2014 budget, which includes a property tax levy of 75.590. This year’s levy is 72.176 mills. Tucker said the new levy would increase taxes on a home valued at $50,000 by $20 a year. Net expenditures in 2014 are pegged at $2,943,061. This year’s are $2,903,474.

McPherson smoke lounge aimed at colleges MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — If you don’t look carefully, you might miss it: an unmarked storefront nearly overshadowed by the flashing lights of its neighbor, Dottie’s Girls Liquor. The McPherson strip mall is modern and sparse, and cars are more likely to turn east off Centennial into the Walmart across the street. But the sign on the door glows “OPEN” and enough visitors trickle into the fluorescent purple light to give Blaze Hookah Lounge a mysterious allure. The sign is coming soon, said owner Pravesh Chand, who opened McPherson’s only hookah lounge May 27, as well as the college students he hopes will fill the lounge this fall to study, smoke and relax. While McPherson, Kan., seems like an odd destination for a Middle Eastern-style smoke lounge, Chand says the idea was to create a central location for a growing crowd of hookah aficionados, The Hutchinson News reports. “McPherson is surrounded by junior col-



leges,” he said. “Instead of driving an hour to Wichita, students can just drive 20 or 30 minutes.” But besides the hiphop remixes reverberating through the lounge’s sound system, Blaze isn’t a typical college bar. Wi-Fi is free, the only drinks are Pepsi products, and spotless white couches swim under multi colored lighting Chand rigged up himself. Blaze offers 30 different kinds of shisha, the sweet and smooth tobacco vaporized through statuesque water pipes called hookahs. The flavors, shipped in from California, range from fruity blends like Tequila Sunrise and Pirate’s Cave, to Chand’s favorite, mint. The appeals of hookah are the slight tobacco buzz, a sweet and syrupy inhale and thick smoke, prime material for blowing visible rings. Mahan Qadeer of Lava Hookah Lounge in Wichita said lounges are also a unique venue for parties and reunions. “It’s social,” she said. “Just the atmosphere. It’s something different to do.”

ing hookah is more of an event than a habit. Qadeer said hookah can and should easily be enjoyed in moderation. Chand, 23, worked in Wichita hookah lounges for six years, watching and learning, before opening Blaze. He said he didn’t want to compete with his friends, mentors and previous employers. Chand expects a college crowd, specifically underage students looking for a place to unwind, but aims to draw

smoking will have the same risks from secondhand smoke.” According to the American Journal of Health Behavior, an average hour of smoking hookah involves 200 puffs, while an average cigarette is about 20 puffs. Hookah smoke carries the same increased risks of oral, lung, stomach and esophagus cancers. “People may actually be absorbing higher concentrations of the toxins due to the depth of inhalation,” Park said. But both Chand and Qadeer argue that smok-

But Chand, who is also a part-time DJ, will be flexible. Owning a business is kind of like emceeing a wedding, he said. “It’s not up to me,” he said. “It’s what the crowd wants.”

book is “Care Homes Are Murder.” My other suggestion is the Bedand-Breakfast series by Mary Daheim, featuring Seattle bed and breakfast owner Judith McGonigle Flynn. The latest entry in the series, as all others, features a pun in the title: “Gone With the Win.” “He’s Gone” by Deb Caletti finds Dani waking up alone on a Sunday morning, wondering if her husband Ian has just gone to get muffins. As time goes on she begins to realize he’s not returning, and the police try to determine whether there has been a crime. Dani begins to plumb her memories, trying to remember every detail of their relationship and evaluate their marriage. It was a second marriage for each, their first ones ending because of their affair. Is the book mostly a look at marriage, or is it mostly a suspense book? In the end, it may not matter which is predominant, as a reader may be equally intrigued by either one. Fans of “Duck Dynasty” will want to read “Happy, Happy, Happy” by Phil Robertson. The patriarch of the Duck Commander family, Robertson tells the story of his life. As a younger man, he lived a life of “romping, stomping and ripping” and even left his wife and children for a while before he began walking the walk of faith. Not long ago “Eat, Pray, Love” was a best-seller. This book might well have been titled “Eat, Pray, Love, Work, Hunt.”

Filming wraps up about Kansas’ Bender family ROCK SPRINGS, Kan. (AP) — Crews are wrapping up the filming of a movie about a family of southeast Kansas innkeepers who killed about a dozen travelers in the 1870s. The Daily Union in Junction City reports that the crews shooting the “The Bender Claim” have been working recently at the Rock Springs 4-H Camp. Director John Alexander and producer JC Guest co-wrote

the film. The pair met at Harvard University and decided they wanted to make a film based on a true legend of the western frontier. Then they learned of the Benders, who owned an inn and general store in Labette County from 1871 to 1873. They’re accused of killing travelers and burying them in their apple orchard. Before the bodies were found, the family fled. Filming began in July.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Davis has guts Rep. Paul Davis is testing the waters for a 2014 gubernatorial race. He should jump in. As the current House minority leader, Davis, DLawrence, has a wealth of experience. Besides, he walks his talk, meaning his votes reflect his values. In this most recent legislative session Davis voted “nay” on four key issues. All passed, which is not to say Davis is not representing his constituents. To the contrary. For example, Davis voted against reducing state income tax rates. Kansas legislators are taking our state down a road to disaster because of their unwillingness to properly fund schools, highways, and social services. Already, fiscal year 2013 is behind last year’s budget numbers. Yes, all the buzz from the revenue department says receipts are “up” $90 million. But that’s against what was expected. In fact, today’s revenues are $72 million behind last year’s at this time. Poll after poll has shown Kansans view education, healthcare and infrastructure as a responsibility of the Legislature. You can’t be pro-education but antitax in the same breath. DAVIS ALSO was in the minority by voting against the authorization of handguns in state buildings. Starting July 1, persons licensed to carry concealed guns are able to enter most public buildings armed. The new law has made city, county and school district officials seek exemptions to avoid the costly security measures necessary to detect firearms. Davis also voted against

Kansas’ claim that it need not obey federal laws regarding firearms. In regards to Kansas courts, Davis voted against authorizing the governor to have sole authority to appoint judges to the Kansas Court of Appeals. The old system included a commission, which vetted nominees for the governor’s appointment. Giving the governor this power raises all kinds of temptation to return favors by appointment to the bench of the state’s secondhighest court. Word has it Brownback also wants the same power for appointments to the state’s Supreme Court. To his credit, Davis is not looked upon favorably by the Koch brothers’ Americans for Prosperity tea party movement, which gives him a 10 percent rating for his political stances. At the other end of the political spectrum, the Kansas Association of School Boards gives him a 75 percent rating. He’s also received endorsements from Kansas Farm Bureau and the state chapter of the AFL-CIO. Davis is on record for supporting a stronger minimum wage and in 2009 praised then-governor Kathleen Sebelius for raising the state’s minimum wage from $2.65 an hour to $7.25 an hour. Contrary to his voting record, Davis is a positive and amiable person with energy to spare. He’s also gutsy to be willing to go up against Brownback, who walked away with a 63 percent majority in the 2010 race against State Sen. Tom Holland. Davis knows his candidacy is a longshot — unless the voters say otherwise. — Susan Lynn

4 reasons Mideast peace talks might work By GHASSAN RUBEIZ McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Suspend your cynicism. As a new round of negotiations between Palestinians and Israelis begins, four recent developments suggest that this time they may actually succeed. First, the European Union boycott of Israeli settlements has begun to have an impact. When more than two dozen European countries recently announced a policy of economic sanctions on products manufactured by Israeli settlers, the message was clear: The EU considers the Israeli occupation illegitimate and a violation of international law. After the United States, Europe is the second most important friend and partner of Israel. The EU boycott has suddenly given Israel pause. The second relevant event comes from the isolation of Hezbollah. Syria’s civil war may be Hezbollah’s Vietnam. Hezbollah’s military diversion from fighting Israel to aiding the Assad government in Syria may have given the Israelis some security. The third factor is the new government in Egypt. The post-Morsi regime seems to be keen on limiting the power of Hamas, which has ruled Gaza and functioned as an armed challenge to Israel. For reasons of its own, the new government in Cairo has closed the majority of secret tunnels that link Gaza with Egypt and that Hamas has routinely used. Today, like Hezbollah, Hamas is weak, and Israel has never been safer militarily. Except for Iran, which is the fourth reason Israel may be anxious to come to the table. Iran remains a top priority for Israel. The new moderate Iranian president, Hasan Rouhani, complicates matters because he is harder to demonize than his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmedinejad.

Israel wishes to face what it considers to be a nearly nuclear-ready Iran with maximum diplomatic strength. And so it seems now to be accepting the idea that it must negotiate some level of withdrawal from the 1967 borders. If this round of peace talks fails, it may mark the end of

the peace process. And that fear could be the biggest impetus of all for making a historic compromise and settling this 65-year dispute once and for all. About the writer: Ghassan Michel Rubeiz is the former secretary of the Middle East for the Geneva-based World Council of Churches.

Immigration reform — because the Bible says so By JIM WALLIS Los Angeles Times

Some say it will take a miracle for Congress to pass common-sense immigration reform. That miracle may be in the making, helped along by Christians who want to put their faith into action. On July 24, 300 evangelical Christians from 27 states had 110 meetings with their mostly Republican representatives on Capitol Hill to ask them to let personal faith replace political fear. Republican leaders told us we represented a “new factor” in the debate on immigration, a grass-roots constituency for reform that can influence the political right. We offered a clear message to every member of the House, but especially those who consider themselves people of faith. Christians, including millions of evangelicals, believe fixing our broken immigration system is long overdue. We aren’t primarily motivated by political considerations or even by the clear economic benefits immigration reform would bring. It is the biblical call to “welcome the stranger” and Jesus’ concern for “the least of these” that inspires us. Congress needs to pass immigration reform because it is the morally right thing to do. Of course, God never ordains or endorses particular pieces of legislation — bills are always the product of compromises and limitations. But the principles contained in the common-sense immigration bill put forward by both Republicans and Demo-

crats in the Senate are the right ones. The proposal could bring 11 million people out of the shadows, reunite families, provide an earned, achievable pathway to citizenship, respect the rule of law and secure the border — all goals that are broadly consistent with biblical values. When three of the largest

about immigration reform — not just a political one. We don’t think a faith-based argument exists against immigration reform, at least if you’re reading the Bible closely. God’s passionate, abiding concern for immigrants and foreigners, strangers and travelers — and for our neighbors — is obvious to anyone read-

It is the biblical call to “welcome the stranger” and Jesus’ concern for “the least of these” that inspires us. Congress needs to pass immigration reform because it is the morally right thing to do. Republican constituencies — evangelicals, law enforcement officials and business leaders — are in favor of an immigration overhaul, it’s hard to fathom the arguments against it. Those whose position on reform is based on political fear, unacknowledged racial prejudice or worries about losing primaries to far-right ideologues are too often the same people who trumpet their religious convictions as guiding their decisions in public life. Our claim to them is simple: Politicians who are professing Christians need to consider what their faith has to say about immigration. If they oppose reform and refuse to offer compassion to our immigrant brothers and sisters, they should justify their positions on moral grounds. We join with other faith communities in asking for a moral and religious conversation

ing through Scripture. In the Old Testament, the Lord commands: “When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself ...” (Leviticus 19:33-34). The biblical word “ger” for the foreigners in our midst occurs an astounding 92 times in the Hebrew scriptures, with the consistent instruction to protect them. In the New Testament, the stranger, and all who are vulnerable, are at the very heart of the Gospel. In the book of Matthew, Jesus offers a vision in which caring for them is the defining mark of God’s kingdom: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a

stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me” (Matthew 25:35-36). That evangelical Christians would finally act to reform the immigration system should surprise no one, and not just for theological reasons. Undocumented immigrants have joined our congregations; we understand the problem firsthand. They are our brothers and sisters in the body of Christ. And we know that by reforming our immigration laws, we can create a system that also reflects the best values of our nation and the highest ideals of our faith. We act because, as the book of James reminds us, “faith without works is dead.” Conservative Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida has connected his faith with his vote: “I think the biggest change hasn’t been in the pulpit; it’s been in the pews.... It’s one thing when 11 million is a sta-

tistic. The other thing is when one of those 11 million is your friend, a human being who you now know ... as a father, as a husband, as a mother, as a worker, as a worshiper.... Our faith has always been about compassion and it compels you to do something. If you took compassion or the principle of compassion out of the Bible, it would be in tatters because it’s all over the place.” Compassion is indeed all over the Bible. I pray it will also be found in the House of Representatives. It’s time for Christians in the House to stand up in support of immigration reform, or to explain why they won’t — as Christians. If they follow their faith, we will see the miracle we need. ——— About the writer: Jim Wallis is president of the Washingtonbased Christian organization Sojourners.

sleep. Although personal needs vary, the average adult needs seven to eight hours of sleep per night. Babies typically sleep about 16 hours a day. Young children need at least 10 hours of sleep, while teenagers need at least nine hours. Sleep can be disrupted by many things. Stimulants such as caffeine or certain medications can keep you up. Distractions such as electronics — especially the light from TVs, cell

“ Sleep services all aspects of our body in one way or another ­ — molecular; energy balance, as well as intellectual function, alertness and mood.

— Dr. Merrill Mitler, sleep expert and neuroscientist

The longer days of summer with more daylight hours seem to be filled with demands on our time. To fit everything in, we often sacrifice sleep. But sleep affects both mental and physical health. It’s vital to our well-being. Of course, sleep helps you feel rested each day. But while you’re sleeping, your brain and body don’t just shutdown. Internal organs and processes are hard at work throughout the night. “Sleep services all aspects of our body in one way or another – molecular, energy balance, as well as intellectual function, alertness and mood,” said Dr. Merrill Mitler, a sleep expert and neuroscientist at the National Institutes of Health. When you’re tired, you can’t function at your best. Sleep helps you think more clearly, have quicker reflexes and focus better. “The fact is, when we look at wellrested people, they’re operating at a different level than people trying to get by on one or two hours less nightly sleep,” Mitler said. Loss of sleep impairs higher levels of reasoning, problem-solving and attention to detail. Tired people tend to be less productive at work. They’re at a much higher risk for traffic accidents. Lack of sleep also influences mood, which can affect how people interact. A sleep deficit over time can even create a greater risk for developing depression. But sleep isn’t just essential for the brain.

risk for obesity, heart disease and infections. Throughout the night, heart rate, breathing rate and blood pressure rise and fall, a process that may be important for cardiovascular health. Hormones released during sleep help repair cells and control the body’s use of energy. These hormone changes can affect body weight. A good night’s sleep consists of four to five sleep cycles. Each cycle includes periods of deep sleep and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, when we dream. As the night goes on, the portion of that cycle that is in REM sleep increases. This pattern of cycling and progression is critical to the biology of

phones, and e-readers – can prevent you from falling asleep. The recent weather we’ve been experiencing, with thunder, lightning and rain, has probably kept many from getting a good night’s sleep. Following are some simple tips can improve the quality of sleep: • Go to bed the same time each night and get up the same time each morning. • Sleep in a dark, quiet, comfortable environment. • Exercise daily, but not right before bedtime. • Limit the use of electronics before bed. • Relax before bedtime. A warm bath or reading might help. • Avoid alcohol and stimulants such as caffeine late in the day. • Avoid nicotine. • Consult a health care professional if you have ongoing sleep problems.

Sunflower Supreme improves cattle Recent droughts have led to the lowest Jan. 1 cattle inventory since 1952. When the drought breaks the cattle producers who have been able to retain their cow numbers need to be at the forefront of providing quality replacement females. A new program developed by K-State Research and Extension and the Kansas Department of Agriculture should help Kansas producers be at the front of the cow herd re-population effort. The Sunflower Supreme program is a heifer improvement and management program for southeast Kansas producers. The intent of the Sunflower Supreme program is to provide knowledge, guidance and tools to assist beef producers in improved reproductive performance of replacement heifers and in turn increase cow longevity within a herd. The program will help implement effec-

H House estate, discouraged a basement, noting that was a feature that often caused problems. Loren Korte, at the meeting to discuss insurance, supported Whitaker. He has a real estate division in his Personal Service Insurance. Criss said the district would take possession of property where the house will be built on Aug. 22 and plans were to pour its foundation the first week of September. Meanwhile, he said there were chores the students could do on the district’s new sports complex while waiting to begin work on the house. Korte was at the meeting to discuss insurance, and noted the district’s premium for the upcoming year would increase nearly $20,000 to $79,600. Board members whittled that down $4,000 by increasing property

deduction from $500 to $5,000, and asked Criss to meet with Korte next month to find other savings. Korte said he thought values placed on some buildings might be too high. Also, he pointed out that adding the sports complex, with a value of $2.3 million, increased property premiums by about $3,000 and general escalation of material and labor costs had pushed up insurance costs. A few years ago a new roof cost $4,000 to $5,000 to replace, now it’s $10,000 to $12,000, Korte said. AT FIRST blush, enrollment in the district has increased over a year ago with initial figures being 297 in preschool through sixth grade, 150 in middle school and 180 at the high school, a total of 627. Last year’s official count was 590.

Criss said enrollment would fluctuate over the next month before settling in for the official count on Sept. 20. He also said work on the sports complex and a new parking lot south of the high school had been slowed by recent rains. But, “the focus is to have the sports complex ready by the first varsity football game,� Sept. 20 against Neodesha, he said. As for the parking lot, “it should be ready soon and until then we’ll just work through it.� FOLLOWING a hearing, the district’s 2013-14 budget was approved. The overall levy dropped a smidgen, from last year’s 62,962 mills to 62.955. For perspective, a levy of 1 mill raises $1 for each $1,000 of assessed valuation; on a $100,000 home, assessed at $11,500, $11.50 is paid for each mill levied.

H Construction Continued from A1 the traffic signs and signals, before removal of pavement can begin. Lack of information has caused some confusion about the project, he said. Many of the motorists and residents along

In return, Gas will handle all closing costs. SAFE BASE director Angela Henry spoke about the possibility of another trip for the afterschool program.

ferent players. Six players also scored one run apiece. Justin Maxwell and Alcides Escobar each broke ties with RBI triples, in the fourth and sixth innings, and Billy Butler rocked a 419-foot homer in the seventh. Chris Getz marked his return from the disabled list with three singles. David Lough, Escobar and Butler each had two hits. The Royals moved to 62-54 by winning for the 19th time in 24 games since the All-Star break. They haven’t been eight games over .500 this late in the season since they stood 82-74 on Sept. 22, 2003. More math: They Royals jumped past Cleveland into second place in the American League Central and pulled to within 6 { games of first-place Detroit. They also closed to within four games of Tampa Bay for

the final wild-card spot. Right-hander Wade Davis, in his first start since Aug. 2, held the Marlins to two runs and six hits in six innings. He returned Sunday from seven days of family emergency leave following the death of his stepbrother. Davis, 6-9, handed a 5-2 lead to reliever Louis Coleman to start the seventh inning. Coleman got two outs but also gave up a single and a walk, which brought Tim Collins to face Logan Morrison. A walk loaded the bases, but Collins stranded all three runners by retiring Ed Lucas, a long-time Royals’ farmhand, on a fly to left. Billy Butler then opened the bottom of the inning with a 419-foot homer to left against reliever Ryan Webb for a 6-2 lead.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (MCT) — And now the Royals are eight games over .500, and they got there Monday night in a 6-2 victory over the Miami Marlins by overcoming some rare defensive bobbles through stout pitching and a balanced 12-hit attack. They also got there without All-Star left fielder Alex Gordon, who missed a game to attend the birth of his second son, and despite another addition to a growing injury list. Third baseman Mike Moustakas left the game in the fifth inning because of what club officials classified as tightness in his left calf. It was a calf injury, remember, that recently sent Miguel Tejada to the disabled list. The Royals shook it all off by getting RBIs from six dif-

WAVERLY — Funeral services were Friday for former Waverly and Emporia State basketball star Sean Robbins, who was found dead in a Chicago hotel room Aug. 5. Robbins, 41, still is regarded as Sean Robbins something of an athletic legend at Waverly, where he starred on the football field and basketball court. He moved on to Emporia State, where he played basketball in 1990-91 and again from 1992 to 1996, after a year at Kansas State University.

Robbins was living in Owasso, Okla., and working for WSI Kimberly-Clark. He was in Chicago on a business trip at the time of his death. Robbins averaged 18.4 points per game in his ESU career. His 216 3-pointers remains a school record, and his 1,396 points ranks him seventh in the all-time Hornet record book. Robbins’ 45 points against Lincoln in 1995 is still the 10th highest single-game total in ESU history. Robbins was second team All-MIAA his senior season in 1995. No cause of death has been given.

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — Jamaal Charles climbed into a green cart midway through practice Monday, favoring his right foot, and started to unbuckle his shoulder pads as he was taken to the Chiefs’ locker room. Cue the hundreds of tweets speculating about his injury. By the time practice ended and coach Andy Reid finally had a chance to brief reporters — it turned out to be a strained foot and X-rays were negative — just about anybody with an interest in the Chiefs was wondering how long the Pro Bowl running back would be out. Cue the rush of tweets telling folks to calm down. “We’ll just see how he does. Precautionary measures,” Reid said. “We’ll see how he does here in the next little bit

— see where he’s at as far as pain or swelling. We’ll see how he does.” Reid wouldn’t say for sure whether Charles will play Friday night against San Francisco. “If he’s ready to go,” Reid said, “he’ll play.” The social-media storm that erupted following Charles’ injury may have been only natural given how critical the flashy running back has become to the Chiefs. He’s coming off a 1,500-yard season for an offense that was among the worst in the NFL, and will be counted upon heavily in Reid’s system in both the running and passing game. On the Chiefs’ opening drive last Friday night in New Orleans, Charles had five carries and three catches, touching the ball on more than half of their 14 plays. Charles wound up capping the drive with a 1-yard plunge, the only TD the Chiefs scored in a 17-13 defeat. Then there’s the fact that Charles missed nearly an enSee CHARLES | Page B2

Twenty-nine high-schoolers learned in-depth running instruction recently as part of Vince DeGrado’s second annual Allen Community College cross country runners camp. The camp drew participants from as far away as Topeka, Kansas City and Oklahoma, DeGrado said, and included Iola High’s Jeremy Spears. In addition to several training runs, campers played a number of games and underwent a computerized gait analysis to better detail their strengths and deficiencies as distance runners. The 29 runners were about twice as many as those who participated in 2012, DeGrado said.

H Royals Continued from B1

Kelvin Herrera worked around a leadoff double in the eighth before Luke Hochevar closed out the victory. The Royals are 6-2 on a 10-game homestand that concludes with two more games against the Marlins. Miami starter Tom Koehler, 3-8, didn’t allow a hit until two outs in the fourth, but he gave up two runs that inning and three more in the sixth before exiting. The Royals didn’t get their first hit until Moustakas beat Koehler to first on a grounder to first for a two-out single in the fourth inning. That turned into the game’s first run when Maxwell drove a triple into the right-center gap. Getz followed by grounding a single up the middle for a 2-0 lead.

Getz went to third on Escobar’s hit-and-run single through the right side. Escobar stole second, but Koehler ended the inning by retiring Jarrod Dyson on a grounder to second. Moustakas came up grimacing on his slide at home but played through the Miami fifth before leaving for a pinch-hitter, newcomer Jamey Carroll, in the bottom of the inning. The injury was later diagnosed as tightness in Moustakas’ left calf. The Royals termed his status as “day to day” and said he will be evaluated further on Tuesday. Oh, and Carroll struck out with runners at first and third. Miami pulled even in a two-run sixth included two errors and one

— well, let’s say — play not made by the Royals’ outfield. Unusual stuff. A two-base whiff by Dyson on Giancarlo Stanton’s one-out single to center put a runner at third. The Royals conceded the run by keeping their infield back, but that positioning didn’t matter when Morrison sent a drive to deep right that Maxwell seemed to reach — but didn’t reach. The ball fell for an RBI double. Davis struck out Lucas on three pitches, but Greg Dobbs tied the game with a double into the right-field corner. Dobbs went to third when Maxwell misplayed the carom for an error. Adeiny Hechavarria drew a walk before Davis ended the inning

when Dyson ran down Jake Marisnick’s drive to deep center. The Royals mustered an immediate three-run answer when the Marlins reciprocated with suspect defense. Getz punched a oneout single up the middle, Escobar followed by slicing a full-count pitch into short right. It should have been a single, but Stanton couldn’t cut the ball off. It was scored an RBI triple, and the Royals led 3-2. Dyson’s infield single increased the lead to 4-2. That finished Koehler, too. Dan Jennings replaced Koehler and, after Dyson stole second, surrendered an RBI single to Lough, who served the ball into short right field for a 5-2 lead.

Chiefs’ third-round draft pick, stepped into Charles’ place with the first-team offense for the remainder of Monday’s practice. Davis had already moved past veteran Shaun Draughn and second-year running back Cyrus Gray to No. 2 on the depth chart. “He went down. I had to get in, step in and play my role,” Davis said. “(Reid’s) whole goal was to build a team where if one man went down the next man would step up.” Reid said that the reps that Davis got with the first-team offense were invaluable.

The former Arkansas star was considered a first-round talent coming out of college, but he slipped down draft boards because of injury concerns and a propensity for fumbling. Already, he’s shown game-breaking speed and uncanny elusiveness early in training camp. “It was good work for Knile today, if you want to take a positive from it,” Reid said. “It gives another guy an opportunity to practice. That’s how I look at it. It allowed Knile, our young running back, to get good work with the ones.”

tire season two years ago with a torn ACL. He hasn’t been injury prone since joining the Chiefs, but not even Charles was sure whether he’d be the same player once he made it back from the left knee injury. He wound up running for at least 100 yards seven times in 2012, and more than 200 yards twice. Reid seemed to bristle when asked Monday about balancing the level of contact in practice with the risk of injury. The Chiefs have been in full pads almost since the moment they arrived at training camp,

tackling to the ground in just about every practice. In fact, Charles was participating in an 11on-11 session pitting the first-team offense against the No. 1 defense near the goal line Monday when he gingerly walked off the field. He spent some time talking to the training staff before riding off the field. “Well, listen, we play. We come out and we do what we do,” said Reid, who earned a reputation for running tough practices in Philadelphia. “We don’t worry about all that other stuff.” Knile Davis, the

ATLANTA (AP) — A man who fell more than 60 feet from an upperlevel platform at Atlanta’s Turner Field onto a parking lot during a baseball game died Monday night, police said. Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee confirmed the death of the man, whose name has not been released. The man fell during Monday night’s game between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. “At this time there’s no indication of foul play and the fall appears accidental,” Chafee said late Monday. “It appears he fell from an upper-level platform to a secured lot below.” Chafee said police received the report of the fall just before 9 p.m. Monday. When officers arrived, they located a

man who appeared to have fallen 65 feet, or about six stories. Chafee said the fall occurred on the stadium’s back side. He said witnesses described the fall as accidental, but that police were not releasing other details of what they said. He said he did not know if wet conditions or alcohol were factors. Heavy rains had led to a nearly two-hour delay of the game, which was scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m. A Braves spokeswoman declined comment earlier Monday night, referring calls to the Atlanta police. Monday’s accident wasn’t the first of its kind to happen at Turner Field, and marked at least the third time a sports fan has fallen from the stands in Atlanta in about a year.

I f c o n victed at tri- Kwiatkowski al, he could have been sentenced to up to 98 years behind bars. He agreed to plead guilty to 14 federal drug theft and tampering charges he faced in exchange for a lighter sentence of 30 to 40 years in prison. Kwiatkowski’s attorneys did not immediately respond to emails or a phone message left at their office Monday night. A hearing on the plea agreement is set for Wednesday. Linda Ficken, of Andover, Kan., is among those Kwiatkowski is accused of infecting. Ficken, 71, said Monday she’s glad he pleaded guilty but wishes the sentence were longer.

“It should’ve been life, since he gave us potentially a death sentence,” she said. More than a year after Kwiatkowski’s arrest, Ficken said, she is still angry at Kwiatkowski and at the system that let him move from job to job after he was fired over allegations of drug use and

theft. Thirty-two patients in New Hampshire have been diagnosed with the strain of hepatitis C carried by Kwiatkowski, who worked at 18 hospitals in seven states before being hired in New Hampshire in 2011. There have been seven cases in Maryland, six in Kansas and one in Pennsylvania.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A traveling hospital technician accused of infecting dozens of patients with hepatitis C through needles tainted with his own blood reached an agreement with prosecutors that would give him a sentence of as little as 30 years instead of the nearly 100 he could have faced if convicted in a trial. The agreement, filed Monday, also contained new revelations that he was fired from two Michigan hospitals and resigned from two others before beginning his traveling temp career. David Kwiatkowski, who has been jailed since his arrest in July 2012, is accused of stealing painkiller syringes from Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab in New Hampshire and replacing them with blood-tainted saline. He told investigators he had been stealing drugs for more than a decade and was “kill-

New Hampshire after his arrest in which he said he knew he’d been diagnosed in 2010 but continued to “swap out” syringes of the painkiller fentanyl. He said he had been stealing drugs since 2002 and estimated that he had swapped syringes at least 50 times in New Hampshire, at least 30 times in Georgia and more than 20

times in Kansas. Under the plea deal, Kwiatkowski would avoid criminal charges in the latter two states. After Kwiatkowski’s arrest, two of his previous employers confirmed that he had been fired over drug allegations. But several new incidents emerged in Monday’s court filing. According to the plea agreement, Kwiatkowski was fired from a Michigan hospital in 2004 after failing a drug test and was fired from another that year for gross misconduct. He resigned from two more Michigan hospitals while under investigation for drug use. Kwiatkowski, who grew up in Michigan, later began work as a traveler sent by staffing agencies to hospitals around the country, usually for temporary jobs. In announcing federal drug charges last year, U.S. Attorney John Kacavas called him a “serial infector.”


Moran visits Kansas leaders WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran is planning to meet with business leaders and hospital administrators in south-central Kansas. The Kansas Republican scheduled a morning tour of the National Institute for Aviation Research this morning, followed by remarks at the monthly meeting of the Wichita Independent Business Association. Moran travels to neighboring El Dorado in the afternoon to attend the Kansas Hospital Association meeting at the Susan B. Allen Memorial Hospital. The meeting includes discussions with hospital administrators from across the state and a tour of the hospital facilities.

Kansas battlefield featured BALDWIN CITY, Kan. (AP) — Television history buffs have dug for historical artifacts at a little-known Civil War battlefield in northeast Kansas. The episode of “Diggers” that features the Black Jack Battlefield near Baldwin City will air Wednesday on the National Geographic Channel, The Lawrence Journal World reported. The stars of the show — “King George” Wyant and Tim “The Ringmaster” Saylor — use metal detectors to search historical terrain for any items that may be connected with that event. The pair then works

with an archaeologist to review whatever they find, and anything worth keeping is returned to the historic site’s trust. The Black Jack Battlefield, which was declared a National Historic Landmark last fall, is the site where abolitionist John Brown fought the pro-slavery forces of Henry Clay Pate on June 2, 1856. The show also will feature other Kansas sites related to the Civil War. “We are thrilled that a nationally known program like this chose us as a site because this can do nothing but help increase the public’s knowledge of the Bat-

tle of Black Jack,” said Kerry Altenbernd, the vice president of the Black Jack Battlefield Trust. Altenbernd said he and others at Black Jack were hesitant when first contacted, but said that after researching, watching a few episodes of the show and seeing that the men wanted to act as a resource for Black Jack, they decided appearing on “Diggers” was a great opportunity. “They’re not in it for the glory; they’re actually dedicated to helping out the sites they come to,” Altenbernd said. “That’s when we decided to go ahead with it.”

Judge narrows lawsuit against abortion law

Steve Ranz, Sales Manager • Todd Willis • Jim Naff • Tom Aikins

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge on Monday narrowed a Planned Parenthood lawsuit against a new Kansas abortion law to a single requirement dealing with providers’ websites. U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil approved an agreement filed last week by attorneys for Planned Parenthood and the state. The judge also set deadlines for other anticipated court filings on the remaining legal issue, with the first due in September. Planned Parenthood will drop its challenge to provisions of the law requiring abortion providers to give patients information with statements the providers find objectionable. The state agrees that providers are complying with those provisions if they give patients access to materials with those statements from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, without repeating the same statements in the providers’ own materials. The new law took ef-

John Hanna The Associated Press fect in July, and the only remaining legal issue in Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit is a requirement that providers’ website home pages link to a health department site on abortion and fetal development. The rule also says the providers must declare that the state’s information is “objective” and “scientifically accurate.” Peter Brownlie, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, said the organization had expected Vratil to approve the agreement narrowing the lawsuit. The Planned Parenthood chapter performs abortions at a clinic in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park. “It’s a positive development from our perspective and lets us focus on the issue that’s most

problematic,” Brownlie said. Planned Parenthood argues that the website requirement violates its free speech rights. The law’s supporters contend such a requirement ensures that women seeking abortions obtain good information from someone other than the providers. A spokesman for Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office did not immediately respond to a telephone message and email seeking comment. The website-link requirement already has been blocked by a state court judge in a separate lawsuit filed in Shawnee County by two doctors who perform abortions. The doctors are challenging the entire law, but the judge in their case allowed most of it to take effect. The new law also bans sex-selection abortions, blocks tax breaks for providers and prohibits providers from furnishing materials or instructors for public school classes. Planned Parenthood isn’t challenging those requirements.

Dutch prince dies Was in coma from skiing accident (MCT) THE HAGUE, Netherlands — Prince Friso of the Netherlands died Monday, 18 months after he was buried in an avalanche and fell into a coma from which he never awoke, the royal house said. He was 44. King Willem-Alexander announced “with deep regret” that his younger brother Friso died from complicat i o n s related to the severe brain damage he suf- Friso fered in February 2012, when he was struck by an avalanche while skiing off-piste in the Austrian ski resort of Lech. The father of two had at first been treated at a London clinic but was transferred to palace of his mother, former Queen Beatrix, in The Hague. Friso had only showed signs of “minimal consciousness” during his year and a half in a coma, the royal statement said. The king and Queen Maxima are on their way back to the Netherlands after cutting short their holiday in Greece. Premier Mark Rutte said Friso’s death was “incredibly sad,” while thousands of citizens expressed their condolences online.

Surgery unclear with back pain Dear Dr. Roach: I am a 60-year-old female who has been diagnosed with spondylolisthesis and stenosis. My pain is severe in both buttocks and the backs of my upper thighs. I also have some lowerback tightness. Pain is relieved upon sitting or lying down. My orthopedic surgeon recommends a lumbar laminectomy and fusion. I’ve never had surgery and don’t want to have this. I am a diabetic, and this adds to my concerns about recovery from surgery. I’m doing strengthening exercises, and I’ve been getting epidurals, with varying degrees of relief. I cannot take antiinflammatories due to bleeding issues. Extra-

To Your Good Health strength Tylenol gives some relief. Are there other treatments available? My surgeon says no. Would losing weight help? I’m about 40 pounds overweight. What about following an anti-inflammatory diet? — M.S. Answer: Spondylolisthesis is when the vertebrae are not lined up properly, and one is moved forward compared with another. This causes stretching and sometimes compression of the spinal cord. Stenosis is narrow-

ing, which means that the nerve roots, coming off the spinal cord to form the nerves, are being pressed on. I don’t like to send people to surgeons for back pain, since most people get better without surgery. However, there are some times when surgery clearly is the best treatment, and a few times when surgery is needed quickly. If the nerve is being compressed severely, then there will be not only pain, but loss of reflexes, numbness and weakness. The major concern is weakness. Progressive weakness means surgery is needed urgently. If you have no weakness, then surgery probably is not your only op-

tion. Losing weight, in my experience, always helps. Strengthening exercises, preferably supervised by a physical therapist, likewise can be very helpful. There are medication options for people with bleeding issues, if you need something stronger than Tylenol. Because the problem is largely anatomical, I don’t think an anti-inflammatory diet will cure the problem, but eating healthy foods will make you feel better and will help you lose the weight. You are quite right that because of your long-standing diabetes, the healing from surgery may take longer. But you should not let that stop you if you have an urgent need for surgery.

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.

CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) — It sounded like a thunderstorm as windows broke and the ground shook, but vacationers who were awakened from their rooms at a villa near Orlando, Fla., soon realized that the building was starting to collapse — parts of it swallowed by a 100-foot sinkhole that also endangered two neighboring resort buildings. By early Monday, nearly a third of the structure at Summer Bay Resort had collapsed. All 105 guests staying in the villa were evacuated, as were those in the neighboring buildings. No injuries were reported. The villa, with 24 threestory units, was reported as a total loss. Inspectors remained on the scene Monday afternoon to determine whether the other two

buildings near the sinkhole — a common occurrence in Florida — would be safe to re-enter. The first sign of trouble came about 10:30 p.m. Sunday. Security guard Richard Shanley had just started his shift, and he heard what sounded like shouting from a building. A guest flagged him down to report that a window had blown out. Shanley reported it to management, and another window popped. The resort’s staff decided to evacuate the villa. Shanley said the building seemed to sink by 10 to 20 inches and bannisters began to fall off the building as he ran up and down three floors trying to wake up guests. One couple with a baby on the third floor couldn’t get their door open and had to break a window to get out, he said.
