TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A new state program that pays students’ tuition to help them pursue a technical education is getting glowing reviews from students and leaders alike. Under legislation passed in 2012, Kansas pays tuition for students who learn technical skills during their junior and senior years of high school. The students spend part of their school day in typical high school classes and the rest attending technical or community colleges to learn skills such as graphic design, welding or nursing assistance. The program has been a hit early on, with the number of high school students taking such courses at the state’s 26 community or technical colleges increasing from 3,870 students to 5,800 last year, which was the initiative’s first. The numbers are expected to increase again this year, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Last year, the state paid $12 million in tuition, which school administrators and officials at the Kansas Board of Regents and Kansas State Department of Education say is money well spent. “It’s a great initiative to help students,” said Blake Flanders, vice president for See TECH | Page A4

Once-in-a-lifetime moment Smith plays on Opry stage By KAYLA BANZET

Many musicians dream of the day they are able to play at the Grand Ole Opry. For Tori Smith, 14, the dream came true last month when she took to the legendary stage. Smith, a freshman at Iola High School, plays French horn in the IHS band. In July she attended the Fine Arts Summer Academy in Nashville, Tenn. This was her second year to attend the camp. “We watched the Annie Moses Band play and that’s how we heard about the camp,” Smith’s mother, Michelle Diebolt, said. The band is an American pop string band. The members launched Annie Moses Ministries in 2010 and the Ministry is the parent organization to the Fine Arts Summer Academy. The Academy attracts all types of fine arts performers from all over the United States. Smith, who started playing the French horn in January 2012, went to the camp to practice and learn more about the instrument.

Tori Smith had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — to play on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. REGISTER/KAYLA BANZET Smith was assigned to work with mentor Kelly Misko while at the camp. Many of the instructors at the Academy play professionally. “She played the French

Register tries new styles, colors, fonts Perhaps you noticed something different about today’s Iola Register, but couldn’t quite put your finger on it. We’re experimenting with a new look. New fonts. New headings. New design. The goal is to keep the Register up to date. Just as with cars, clothes and computers, styles change in the newspaper industry. Today’s look includes more white space. Gone are the days when as much print as possible is

crowded into a confined space. A bigger “flag,” that says our name is on page 1. We’re using softer colors to accentuate stories. Our headlines have gone from Helvetica and Nimrod fonts to Myriad and Minion Pro. All these changes reflect a more modern look and one we hope makes the Register easier to read and more pleasant to view. Enjoy. — Susan Lynn, editor and publisher

Staffing shortage at Topeka VA hospital raises concerns TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — State and federal lawmakers want to know what caused a doctor shortage at ColmeryO’Neil VA Medical Center in Topeka that has led to patients sometimes being diverted to other hospitals’ emergency rooms. For the last three months, the hospital has been deciding in mid-afternoon every day whether enough doctors are available to staff the emergency room overnight. If not, patients are diverted to other hospitals, The Topeka CapitalJournal reported. Hospital spokesman Jim Gleisberg said the shortage happened because three doctors left at the same time but the hospital hopes to be fully staffed by September. The shortage caught the notice of U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins, of Topeka, and two state representatives. “While I’m relieved to hear the VA has taken steps to address the shortage and will be returning to a regular ER schedule in a few weeks, I am not comfortable with the response I

received for the reason three doctors left simultaneously,” Jenkins said by email. “I sent a letter to the Secretary of Veteran Affairs, Eric Shinseki, to ask for a more complete response. While turnover in any business is to be expected, mass departures are uncommon without extenuating circumstances.” State Rep. Ramon Gonzalez, R-Perry, and Rep. Virgil Weigel, D-Topeka, who both serve on the Kansas House Veterans, Military and Homeland Security Committee, also questioned the doctor shortage. “The staffing at the VA probably does fluctuate,” Weigel said. “But that does seem a little out of character for all of them to leave at the same time.” Gleisberg said five medical doctors have left the facility in the past 12 months and the VA is “always looking for doctors and nurses.” The VA Eastern Kansas Health Care System includes ColmeryO’Neil, another large hospital in Leavenworth and 11 smaller facilities.

TOPEKA — Kansas officials on Friday vowed to bolster support for suicide prevention and awareness efforts going on throughout the state. Suicide, they said, should be viewed as a public health issue that warrants open discussion. “The impact of suicide on survivors such as spouses, parents, children, family, friends, and co-workers is gravely significant, both immediately and over the

About 30 people — a mix of state officials, advocates, and parents

whose children had died by suicide — attended the two-hour session. KDHE Secretary Dr. Robert Moser also addressed the gathering. “Too many Kansans die by suicide each year — our sons, daughters, moms, dads, friends, people we used to sit next to at church, co-workers, people we saw around town,” said Marcia Epstein, program director at Headquarters Counseling Center.

Train derails in Mexico, 5 dead MEXICO CITY — An old freight train known as La Bestia — the Beast — that was crowded with hundreds of Central American migrants trying to reach the U.S. derailed early Sunday in southern Mexico, killing at least five passengers and badly injuring more than a dozen others, Tabasco state officials said. A mayor from the region, Jazmin Cano, gave a slightly higher death toll, telling the Reforma newspaper that six people were killed and 22 injured. It was possible the number of deaths would rise as the army and other rescuers continued to search the wreckage. Most of the estimated 250 people on board were Hondurans, Mexican officials said. Eight of the train’s 12 cars careened off the tracks and plunged into ditches and the surrounding countryside in the southern state of Tabasco near its border with Veracruz state. La Bestia is a notoriously dangerous but


commonly used form of transportation for migrants who come into southern Mexico from Central America. They hop on board, often after being forced to pay large sums to local gangs, and travel north in hopes of being able to cross into the United States. More and more migrants are from Honduras, Mexican officials say, because of that impoverished country’s lack of work and vicious political violence. The journey for migrants is plagued by dangers beyond La Bestia. Every year, thousands go missing, are killed, forced into slave labor, raped or threatened by gangs that smuggle drugs and people. The gangs control nearly the entire route and often work in cahoots with local police or immigration agents. On Sunday via Twitter, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and the Mexican Foreign Ministry offered condolences to the families of the dead and promised to aid the injured.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Americans are a hard-working lot

U.S. can’t win on Syria war outcome It’s a terrible foreign policy position: Please, keep fighting. But that’s the position the United States is taking as Syrian rebels duke it out against President Bashar alAssad’s military regime. Today’s Syria has a president who poisons his people, fighting against terrorists with al-Qaida ties. Either victor would be hostile to the United States once it solidified its power base. On Wednesday, a chemical weapons attack in suburban Damascus left hundreds dead. Thousands remain injured from the toxic gases, strategically released in the pre-dawn hours before the day’s increasing heat would bring its dissipating winds. Local hospitals were flooded with victims suffering the poisoning. Symptoms from exposure to the sarin gas included shortness of breath, suffocation, bronchial secretions, convulsions, nausea, vomiting and cardiac arrests. Representatives from the United Nations are due this morning to investigate the attack that the Western world lays at the feet of Assad. It’s suspected to be the worst chemical weapons attack in 25 years. The United States is still giving the rebels non-lethal aid. Night-vision goggles. Kevlar vests. Packaged

meals. To date it has withheld guns, planes, armored tanks, munitions. Some see this low-level aid as insufficient and downright damaging to the country’s reputation as a power broker. No doubt. And yet, our allies — equally disgusted with President Assad — are no more eager to retaliate with firepower, dragging their forces into war. Yes, we may be losing our influence in the Mideast.

That’s not surprising. None of our “victories” have stood the test of time or won us any friends. And as we ease our dependency on their oil, many Americans don’t see their internecine hostilities as our affair. President Obama said some time ago proof of chemical weapons would be the “red line” to draw the U.S. further into the war. This is a time we’re willing to let him go back on his word. — Susan Lynn

Leaders should stand up to Kobach When the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Arizona’s proof-of-citizenship requirement to register to vote, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach assured Kansans that their state’s requirement was OK. Nothing to see here, folks. But later Kobach said that he was considering a bizarre scheme to divide registered voters into two groups – those who could vote for all races and issues, and those who could vote only in federal races. That appeared to recognize that Kansas’ proof-of-citizenship law as implemented could not survive legal challenge. Now Kobach is suing the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to try to force it to modify the federal voter reg-

istration form to allow for requiring proof of citizenship — more recognition that Kansas’ law won’t hold up. Rather than let Kobach continue this charade, other state

sas legislators need to realize that they were misled by phony fears of voter fraud and rescind the proof-of-citizenship requirement. If they won’t step up and

drinking water, park spokesman Tom Medema said. Despite ash falling like snowflakes on the reservoir and a thick haze of smoke limiting visibility to 100 feet, the quality of the water piped to the city 150 miles away is still good, say officials with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. The city’s hydroelectric power generated by the system has been interrupted by the fire, forcing the utility to spend $600,000 buying power on the open market. Park employees are continuing their efforts to protect two groves of giant sequoias that are unique to the region by cutting brush and setting sprinklers, Medema said. On Sunday, crews worked furiously to hold a line near Ponderosa Hills and Twain Hart, miles ahead of the blaze. But officials

warned that the fire was so hot it could send sparks more than a mile and a half out that could start new hot spots. “We’re facing difficult conditions and extremely challenging weather,” said Bjorn Frederickson, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service. The blaze sweeping across steep, rugged river canyons quickly has rapidly expanded, thanks in part to extremely dry conditions caused by a lack of snow and rainfall this year. Investigators are trying to determine the cause of the fire, which began days before lightning storms swept through the region and sparked other, smaller blazes. The fire is the most critical of a dozen burning across California, officials say. More than 12 helicopters and a halfdozen fixed wing tankers are dropping water and retardant from the air, and 2,800 firefighters are on the ground.

workforce development at the Kansas Board of Regents, “but it also helps Kansas employers.” The program helps students learn a job skill while helping address workforce shortages in many fields, he said. The regents worked with the Kansas Department of Labor to determine high-demand industries they hope students will consider. High school students can earn industry certificates before

leaving school for many of the jobs in those industries, such as electricians, diesel engine experts, carpenters and heating mechanics. High schools also profit, getting an extra $1,000 in state funds for each student who earns a certificate. Statewide, 711 students earned the certificate last year, with most training for the health industry. Clark Coco, dean of Washburn Institute of

Technology, said his school has doubled the size of its diesel program and more than doubled its heath care program. Students say the choice to miss time at their own high schools to pursue technical training is worth it. “It’s a fair trade-off,” said Engsean Lee, a junior at Washburn Rural High who is studying graphic design. “It’s good to be able to afford college.”

Opry: camp sees big time Misko also plays with the Kansas City Orchestra and Smith is hoping to take private lessons with her. The band camp lasted two weeks and campers worked during every minute of it. Smith went through hours of technique classes, sectionals, and ensemble. She also took a composition course the first week and composed her own song over the six days. “I had to fit in time to practice, too,” Smith said. The song she composed had parts for piano, cello, flute and French horn. Diebolt said Tori can play all of those instruments except flute. She can also play trumpet. During the second week Tori and other campers were able to play on the Grand Ole Opry stage for a public performance. “They put all of us together, brass, strings and drums,” she said. Now that the camp is over and school is back in session Smith is busy practicing with the Iola High School

band. Going back to the camp next year is definitely an option for her.

Allen Red Devil runners get off to fast start By RICHARD LUKEN

Allen Community College’s cross country teams got their season off on the right foot, figuratively and literally, Friday evening. The Red Devil men garnered the top seven spots in Friday’s King’s Sandwich Classic on the ACC campus. The women were just as dominant, with four of ACC’s five runners sweeping the top four spots. “I’m happy, but in no way

satisfied,” Allen head coach Vince DeGrado said. “It was a good start that we can build on from here.” Leading the way for the men was Allen sophomore Brandon Bernal, who finished his 5-kilometer trek in 16 minutes, 2.79 seconds, just steps in front of ACC alum Tegan Michael, who finished in 16:03.0. Michael has used up his eligibility, but will continue to train with the Red Devils this semester. Following in third was Kyle Schauvliege in 16:16.34, Dal-

State fights algae ‘Rock Snot’ invasive to Missouri CASSVILLE, Mo. (AP) — Missouri conservationists and anglers are guarding the state’s streams against a nonnative invasive type of algae that has earned the nickname “rock snot” because of its slick nature. Until last year when the state Department of Conservation launched a public awareness program, longtime fly fisherman Paul Niegsch of Kansas had never heard of the single-celled algae didymo, which blooms in freshwater rivers and streams with consistently cold temperatures and the right pH level. Didymo, short for its scientific name Didymosphenia geminata, forms large mats that blanket river and stream beds, critically altering habitats and cutting off food sources for fish, The Joplin Globe reported. “It can also make fishing impossible — or nearly impossible,” said Paul Spurgeon, who manages the Missouri Department of Conservation trout hatchery at Roaring River State Park, south of Cassville. Didymo has expanded in recent years to 18 states, including a 13-mile stretch of the White River in neighboring Arkansas where it was found in 2005. Beaver Lake in Arkansas and Table Rock and Taneycomo lakes in Missouri are part of the White River basin, all upstream from where the algae was found just south of the state line. “That’s very, very close, and a lot of anglers who fish there (White River) also come to Missouri rivers and streams to fish,” Spurgeon said. Didymo mats can easily detach from a stream bed and float downstream on their own, and the algae can also be transferred between bodies of water on an angler’s porous, felt-soled waders or fishing gear. That prompted a ban of felt-soled waders in Missouri in 2012. Felt-soled waders are popular among anglers because they provide better traction on slippery river surfaces than some other options, such as rubber. “It has never been found in Missouri. We’re being preventative. We’re trying to stay ahead of the game,” Spurgeon said. The conservation department started letting the public know about the dangers of didymo in 2012 and continues working to get the word out. “We’ve held public forums to help educate the anglers and the retailers and outfitters, too — they’re the ones selling the equipment,” Spurgeon said. “We’ve handed out buttons and brochures, and we have signs up.”

Red Devil squads win in routs By RICHARD LUKEN

MIAMI, Okla. — The only thing hotter than the weather Sunday was the offensive explosion put forth by Allen Community College’s soccer teams. The Red Devil women erupted for their highest scoring game in nearly two years, exploding for three second half goals in a 4-1 win over Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College. The Allen men continued the torrid play, particularly in the second half, shutting out the Golden Norsemen 5-0. The games were the season openers for both squads. “We’re very happy with how things went,� said Red Devil women’s head coach Jeremy McGin-

nis, in his first year at the helm at ACC. “We started off a little slowly, but we were able to make some adjustments and things really started to click.� The Red Devils were led by freshman Lexi Godlove, who scored a goal in the first half and two more after intermission to break a 1-1 tie. Godlove also assisted Kyleigh Rowe on ACC’s final goal of the day. Also earning assists were Raegan Vigola, Jordan Vigola and Rowe. Goalkeeper Keelie Arbuckle gathered in 15 saves. The last time ACC women scored as many as four goals in a game was in 2001. McGinnis noted Allen scored only three goals — combined — in 2012. “It really shows how quickly things can

change for us,� McGinnis said, noting Allen lost to this same NEO squad 4-0 last season. “I really have to give credit to the administration for allowing us to add a coach to help us with recruiting and to the girls for the work they’ve done.� THE RED Devil men also did most of their work after intermission after Brett Rex scored in the 25th minute to give ACC a 1-0 lead at halftime on an assist from Dominic Nwagwu. Dorian Fox was next with a goal off a feed from David Lam. Caleb Mills took an assist from Eric Rivera to score the fourth goal. Julio Guerrero blasted in the final goal on a penalty kick. “We definitely played well,� ACC men’s coach

Doug Desmarteau said. “It was pretty hot out there, so we rotated in a lot of guys. Everybody got to play, and to have different people responsible for each goal was big. If you have to rely on only one player, the other team has the ability to shut you down.� THE ALLEN squads will return to action Friday and Sunday at St. Louis. They’ll each play Lewis and Clark Community College before taking on Southwestern College on Sunday. “It’s going to be a big test for us,� McGinnis said. “Lewis and Clark is always a quality program.� Desmarteau agreed. “We’re going to face a couple of quality teams out there,� he said. “We have our work cut out for

Chiefs rally late to win preseason contest By WILL GRAVES

The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Steelers spent 25 minutes knocking around Alex Smith. The Kansas City Chiefs’ new quarterback responded with 5 minutes of nearly flawless football, the kind that provided a glimmer of what could be for a player — and a team — in the midst of rebuilding. Smith guided the Chiefs to a pair of scoring drives late in the first half in a 26-20 overtime victory over the Steelers on Saturday night, sprinting 38 yards to set up a field goal then completing 6 of 7 passes on a 72-yard touchdown drive that tied it just before the starters traded their helmets for baseball caps.

“Felt good out there,� Smith said. “We’ve had limited 2-minte work just by the nature of being together such a limited time, especially in a game situation. So I thought it was great work for us. We started to get some ‘chunk’ plays.� Smith ended his night — and probably his preseason — with a 5-yard strike to Junior Hemingway that earned Smith a draw with Pittsburgh counterpart Ben Roethlisberger. “I thought he was accurate and competitive,� Kansas City coach Andy Reid said about Smith. “I thought he managed things well.� Smith finished 17 of 24 for 158 yards and a touchdown.

The Chiefs eventually won it on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Chase Daniel to Rico Richardson on the first possession of overtime. Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a 49-yard gain on Pittsburgh’s second offensive play, leading to a field goal. The Steelers followed it up with their first offensive touchdown since the 2012 regular season finale against Cleveland. Taking over at the Kansas City 21 after the Chiefs failed to convert a fourth-and-1, Roethlisberger turned a broken play into six points when he scrambled around long enough to find Dwyer wide open in the flat. The running back trotted into the end zone to give the Steelers a 10-0 lead. Kansas City, which like Pittsburgh sleepwalked through the first half of the exhibi-

tion schedule, appeared headed to another dismal effort until Smith found a rhythm late in the half. The former No. 1 draft pick, sent to Kansas City to revitalize his career, took advantage of a breakdown in containment to sprint 38 yards. Smith didn’t need to use his legs during a fabulous drive to end the half. His only incompletion during the game-tying march coming when he spiked the ball to stop the clock. He had little trouble finding Hemingway in the slot for his first touchdown pass for a team other than the San Francisco 49ers. Pittsburgh wide receiver Markus Wheaton hauled in a 34-yard rainbow from backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski early in the third quarter. Moments later, Kansas City’s Knile Davis responded by returning the ensuing kickoff 109 yards for a touchdown.

ACC: Cross country runners dominate Continued from B1

DeGrado delayed the start of the races about 45 minutes because of Friday’s hot weather. The temperature still was about 90 degrees, but with a few clouds in place, most of the runners handled the heat easily. They also dealt with wet grounds around the finish line at ACC’s soccer field. Groundskeepers have kept the fields drenched


in order to help newly installed sod to grow healthier. “I don’t think it affected us much,� DeGrado said. “It was just wetter than we expected.� Allen heads to Memphis Saturday for the Brooks Memphis Twilight Classic, in which the races begin at 8:45 p.m. The women will run a 5K; the men a 4-mile route. “Our freshmen did what all freshmen tend

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (MCT) — Thanks to Billy Butler’s speed — yep, you read that right — the Royals avoided a sweep and snapped a seven-game skid Sunday against Washington. During the decisive two-run eighth inning, Butler reached on an infield single and later beat shortstop Ian Desmond’s throw to third on a force play as the Royals moved back above .500 with a 6-4 win. “You can count them on one hand, if there’s ever been any,� Butler said when asked about the number of games that have turned into wins thanks to his wheels. The Royals’ four-run opening salvo had the Kauffman Stadium crowd of 19,661 feeling good, but the Nationals clubbed three home runs off Ervin Santana, who took a no-decision after serving up two long balls during a game-tying three-run seventh inning.

However, unlike Friday’s series opener in which the Royals blew a six-run lead in an 1110 loss, reliever Kelvin Herrera stopped the bleeding and the home side rallied, snapping the Nationals’ fivegame winning streak when Greg Holland logged his 28th consecutive save. “Every win’s big, but we’ve been having a tough go of it lately,� Butler said. “We jumped out early again today, kind of like the first game of the series, and then the same thing almost happened again, but it shows the character of this team. We never give up — we never have and we never will.� The Royals couldn’t have asked for a better start. After a 1-2-3 top of the first, Alex Gordon blasted a towering 411foot shot to right-center — his 14th home run of the season and his 11th career leadoff homer. Emilio Bonifacio then walked and scored from first on a single by Hosmer.
