Kiwanis, MOMs nearer to special needs playground By STEVEN SCHWARTZ

Just over two months ago, the Iola Kiwanis, along with Mothers of Miracles, were awarded $25,000 to aid in the construction of a special needs access playground. Though the project has blossomed into more than they could’ve hoped for, challenges remain. The grant is through Kiwanis’ “Make a Difference Through Play” program in partnership with Landscape Structures. Equipment for the special needs access playground is “not cheap,” said Mike Ford, a member of the Kiwanis. The two groups have raised just over $60,000 through donations and grants, which is less than halfway to their goal of $155,000. Both the MOMs and Kiwanis members are surprised at how quickly

things have gotten off the ground. “I think we are doing pretty well,” Ford said. “Considering we haven’t even really started fundraising yet.” Contributors to the fund thus far include Iola Kiwanis, Iola Senior Citizens, Inc., Modern Woodmen, Iola Vision Source and Monarch Cement. Iola has contributed $25,000 to their cause and Walmart has pledged $5,000 as part of its “Volunteerism Always Pays” program, which will include 250 hours of employee volunteer work. A few more grants are in the works, which they hope to have in their fund by December. The playground must be installed by May 1, 2014, with construction underway by Kiwanis One Day (the first Saturday in April).

THE MOMS saw a need

for the playground in Iola, which can serve special needs children throughout Allen County and beyond. LeAnn Church, a MOMs member, said the equipment will be “inclusive,” meaning children with and without

disabilities can enjoy it. “I don’t care what kind of kid you are,” Kiwanis member Nancy Ford said. “It’s going to be fun.” Church said she is personally looking forward to bringing her children to the playground, which has received extensive planning

already from Landscape Structures’ designer Matt Cline, who presented the digital playground designs. John Shields, lieutenant governor for Kiwanis Division 3, said the MOMs and Iola Kiwanis groups were See FUN | Page A5

Colony Days ready to rumble Countdown on for hospital opening By KAYLA BANZET

Colony will be packed full of people, activities and fun Saturday at its 106 Annual Colony Days celebration. The Colony Day committee has put forth countless hours of planning to ensure a steady stream of activities. Thirty vendors are regis-

tered for Saturday’s event, said Angela Black, whose responsibility on the Colony Day committee was to help organize the various vendors. Food and craft vendors will dominate. Safety demonstrations will be provided at the Anderson County Sheriff ’s Department booth. “U.S. Cellular will also

have a booth and will give a demonstration on Bluetooth devices,” Black said. Black said the number of vendors are up from last year. “We’ve worked really hard this year to improve from past years,” she said. The weekend weather forecast is predicting hot, sunny weather.

See it before it’s gone Allen County crews are removing the “Hegwald Bridge” west of Humboldt. The $694,933.50 project to replace the bridge will most likely take place at the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014, said Bill King, director of public works. REGISTER/STEVEN SCHWARTZ

The next five to six weeks will see a “whirlwind of activity” at the new Allen County Regional Hospital, said Tim Moore, project engineer with Murray Company. On the inside, finishing touches are being applied to the surgery and emergency room areas, Moore told trustees Tuesday night. On the exterior, grading of the landscape is in the final stages and some trees have been planted. Lines will soon be painted on the parking lot. “In the next two to three weeks we can start cleaning and polishing the outside of the building,” Moore said, “which should provide a big change for the building’s aesthetics.” One setback is the disintegration of mortar between the smooth thin-set stone blocks on the building’s front facade. “The mortar is not sticking,” said a representative from Health Facilities Group, architects for the project.

“Weather forecast for tonight: dark.”

The irregular, rough stone on the upper section of the building’s exterior is in good shape, he said. Different crews installed the two sets of stone and also used different mortar mixes, he said. “That could have been it, or the weather,” he said, noting the two stones were installed at different times of the year. The stone will be removed and reapplied. TRUSTEES agreed to not exempt hospital grounds from those carrying concealed weapons. As of July 1, Kansas law allows concealed carry on public grounds, including hospitals and college campuses. The hospital could exempt itself from complying with the new law and continue to post signs saying no guns allowed. The exemption status is good for four years. After that point it must either change its noweapons status or implement a detection system at every public entrance. See HOSPITAL| Page A5

US defining objectives of strike on Syria

Louis Jackson Jr

By JULIE PACE AP Correspondent

Louis S. Jackson Jr. (Bob), 87, stepped into eternity on Aug. 9, 2013. He was born in Perris, Calif. on Dec. 5, 1925, the son of Louis S. and Olga Marie (Smith) Jackson, Sr. He joined the Navy in 1942 at age 17 so he could serve his country as his brothers were doing. He was a Gunner’s mate on the USS Minneapolis and fought in the Pacific theater in World War II. Upon discharge from the Navy in 1945, he came to Chelsea, where his parents had purchased a homestead. He and Lewis Jackson his brothers joined them in farming and ranching. In August 1946, he obtained the title of “Colonel” from the American School of Auctioneering in Mason City, Iowa. He started his career at the Sale Barn on Jones Street in El Dorado, and soon was operating his own auctions. He married Verla L. Davis Sept. 18, 1948, in El Dorado and they were devoted to one another for more than 64 years. They lived in the Chelsea area until 1978 when they moved to El Dorado. They worked side by side in the Jackson Auction and Real Estate business. He was a Realtor from 1969 until retirement. In retirement he stayed active in ranching and auctioneering, which included his guest appearance on the opening day of the new El Dorado Livestock Auction Barn. He was honored to be asked to sell the first ring of cattle that day, and thoroughly enjoyed the moment. Little did he know that he would finish his auction career at the same place he started. He left his family a lifetime of love and devotion, his wife Verla L. (Davis); children, Marilyn McElroy (Earl), Wichita, Casey Jackson, El Dorado, Shelley Lauber (Rick) Iola; grandchildren Dette (McElroy) Longman, Westminster, Colo., Chris McElroy, Tulsa, Okla., McKayla (Miller) Haskins, Olathe, Cameron Miller, Overland Park, Kiesha (Lauber) Richenburg, St. Paul, and Alicia (Lauber) Hasselby, Overland Park; 12 great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews. Preceding him in death are his parents Louis S. Jackson Sr. and Olga M. (Smith), brothers, James C. Jackson, Joseph C. Jackson and sister Helen C. Evans. Services were Aug. 14 at the First Christian Church in El Dorado. Memorials may be given to the Chelsea Volunteer Fire Department or the American Heart Association.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is still defining the central objectives of a potential military strike on Syria and considering possible Syrian government reprisals, even as U.S. intelligence agencies prepare additional evidence to show the Bashar Assad government’s responsibility for last week’s alleged chemical weapons attack, two senior administration officials said today. One of the officials also said the administration is considering more than a single set of military strikes. “The options are not limited just to one day” of strikes, the official said, adding that no additional U.S. defensive weapons have been deployed in the region in anticipation of Syria reprisals. The U.S. already has Patriot anti-missile batteries in Jordan and Turkey. The other official said the administration has determined it can contain any potential Syrian military response in the event that President Barack Obama orders a U.S. attack, which likely would be led by lowflying cruise missiles fired from any of four U.S. Navy destroyers off Syria’s coast. But the manner and timing of Syria’s response are among the so-called “next day” questions that the administration is still thinking through as it prepares a possible military action, the officials said. Both officials were granted anonymity in order to discuss internal deliberations on the highly sensitive and complex questions that surround crafting a response to the Aug. 21 attack in which hundreds of Syrian civilians were killed. The administration in recent days has made clear it believes it must take punitive action against Syria for its alleged use of chemical weapons, which are banned by international convention, but the senior administration officials’ comments today made clear that

questions about the central purpose of using military force in this circumstance are still being worked out. The officials said diplomatic and legal issues also are still being discussed internally. In broad terms, the U.S. and international objective of striking Syria would be to damage the Syrian government’s military and weapons enough to make it difficult to conduct more chemical weapons attacks, and to make Assad think twice about using chemical weapons again. One administration official said Wednesday the administration also is concerned that if Assad is not punished, dictatorial leaders of other nations in possession of chemical weapons, like North Korea, might see the failure to act as a sign that they, too, could get away with using the weapons. Administration officials have said Assad’s actions posed a direct threat to U.S. national security, providing Obama with a potential legal justification for launching a strike without authorization from the United Nations or Congress. However, officials did not detail how the U.S. was directly threatened by an attack contained within Syria’s borders. Nor did they present concrete proof that Assad was responsible.

“Allowing the use of chemical weapons on a significant scale to take place without a response would present a significant challenge to, threat to the United States’ national security,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday. Assad has denied using chemical weapons, calling the allegations “preposterous.” The U.S. and its international partners were unlikely to undertake military action before Thursday. That’s when British Prime Minister David Cameron will convene an emergency meeting of Parliament, where lawmakers are expected to vote on a motion clearing the way for a British response to the alleged chemical weapons attack. The prime minister’s

office said today that it will put forward a resolution to the U.N. Security Council condemning the Syrian government for the alleged chemical attack. Obama and Cameron spoke Tuesday, their second known conversation since the weekend. A Cameron spokesman said the two leaders agreed that a chemical attack had taken place, and that the Assad regime was responsible. Also Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden became the highestranking U.S. official to charge that Assad’s government fired chemical weapons last week near Damascus. “There’s no doubt who is responsible for this heinous use of chemical weapons in Syria: the Syrian regime,” Biden said.

Financial Focus Can You Save for Retirement and Education? The school year is just beginning, which means that if you have young children, you are now one year closer to college days — and college bills. At the same time, you are moving nearer to your own retirement. Can you save for college while you put money away for retirement? Yes — but it will take planning, patience and discipline. Your first step is to be aware of the challenges you will face. As you know, the financial crisis of 2008 and early 2009 took a bite out of just about everyone’s retirement portfolio. And even though the markets have bounced back strongly, you might still have some ground to make up in your 401(k), Individual Retirement Account (IRA) or other accounts. At the same time, budgetary pressures may lead to reductions in Pell Grants and other federally backed financial aid to students, so you may need to provide more assistance to your children than you once might have thought. To deal with these challenges and help yourself make progress toward your college/retirement objectives, consider the following moves: • Establish some priorities. How much should you save and invest for retirement versus college? Also, how much of the college costs would you like to cover: 100%, 50% or perhaps a set dollar amount? There’s no one “right” answer for everyone — you’ll have to establish priorities based on your preferences and family situation. But once you’ve set these priorities, you’ll have some guiding principles to govern your savings and investment decisions. • Put time on your side. The earlier you start saving for both your retirement and your children’s college education, the better your chances of reaching your goals. • Choose the right investment vehicles. You may want to work with a financial advisor to choose the appropriate mix of investments for your needs. But in general, it’s a good idea to contribute as much as you can afford to your 401(k) or other employer-sponsored retirement account. Your contributions are generally made with pretax dollars, and your earnings can grow tax deferred. And whether or not you have access to a 401(k) or other employersponsored plan, you can probably also contribute to a traditional IRA, which offers tax-deferred earnings, or a Roth IRA, which provides tax-free earnings, provided you’ve held your account at least five years and you don’t start taking withdrawals until you’ve reached age 59½. To save for college, you may want to explore a 529 plan, which also provides tax-free earnings, provided they are used for qualified higher education expenses. • Keep investing. The financial markets will always move up and down — so in some months, you might not like what you see on your investment statements. But the most successful investors keep investing in good times and bad. If you decide to take a “timeout” from investing and head to the sidelines during a market slump, you could miss out on the next rally. By following these suggestions, you can keep moving forward toward two special times in your life: when your children attain the higher education that can help them succeed in life and when you can enjoy the retirement for which you’ve worked so hard.

nothing but error messages for several hours during the site’s second major disruption this month, and people also had trouble accessing Twitter. A hacker group calling itself the “Syrian Electronic Army” claimed responsibility. Within minutes of Tuesday’s attack, the New York Times quickly set up alternative websites, posting stories about chemical attacks in Syria. “Not Easy to Hide a Chemical Attack, Experts Say,” was the headline of one. The service was restored early Wednesday. “Our Web site was unavailable to users in the United States for a time on Tuesday,” the newspaper said in a post on its website. “The disruption was the result of an external attack on our domain name registrar, and we are at work on fully restoring service. We regret if this has caused you any inconvenience.” The cyberattacks come at a time when the Obama administration is trying to bolster its case for possible military action against Syria, where the administration says President Bashar Assad’s government is responsible for a deadly chemical attack on civilians. Assad denies the claim. “Media is going down ...” warned the Syrian Electronic Army in a Twitter message before the websites stopped working, adding that it also had taken over Twitter and the Huffington

Post U.K. Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy said the disruption was caused by a “malicious external attack” that affected its website and email, while Twitter spokesman Jim Prosser said the viewing of images and photos was sporadically affected. Huffington Post U.K. did not respond to requests for comment. Both Twitter and the Times said they were resolving the attack, which actually hit an Australian company that registered their domain names, Melbourne IT. Theo Hnarakis, chief executive of Melbourne IT, the world’s sixth largest registrar of Internet domain names, said the security breach occurred at a major-U.S.-based global reseller, or domain agent, where the hackers launched a “spear phishing attack” within the past week to steal the log-in details of the New York Times and Twitter domains. Hnaraski declined to name the reseller, which is a major Melbourne IT client. “This activist group used a very, very sophisticated spear phishing attack,” Hnarakis told AP. “They sent very dubious emails to staff of one of our resellers whose area of expertise is looking after the domain names for major corporates including the New York Times.” “Unfortunately, a couple of the staff members of the reseller responded by giving their email log-in details; the group were able to search their emails for sensitive information that included the user name and password for the New York Times, and from there it all cascades,” Hnarakis said.

“We don’t put this down to a technical failure. We put it down to human error where someone has inadvertently provided their information and from there, a major a site like the New York Times was down for several hours,” he added. The hackers had also tried to hack into, but failed because that domain was protected by an optional secondary security feature offered by MelbourneIT for the past two years. Times had opted not to have the same level of security. “If they had had the security option turned on, they wouldn’t have been affected,” MelbourneIT chief technology officer Bruce Tonkin said. “We do have a security mechanism that would protect the names from this sort of attack,” he added. “Naturally, we are reviewing security and doing an incident review and will probably add some additional security.” Tonkin said the hacker seemed to have also accessed the credentials of the Huffington Post domain, which is held by a UK registry. “The hackers have just posted a screen shot to say they’ve logged into the (Huffington Post) account, but I’m not aware that they actually changed anything,” Tonkin said. Tracking the hack even further, computer forensics from security firm Renesys Corp. traced the Internet protocol addresses back to the same ones as the Syrian Electronic Army’s website, which the firm said has been hosted out of Russia since June.

50 years later: Still chasing the dream For whites, it’s easy to write off the significance of today’s 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights March on Washington. That’s because in our lifetimes, we have never been denied the right to vote. For whites, the anniversary can seem “overblown.” That’s because we have never been knocked over by the forceful spray of a firehose, attacked by snarling dogs, or humiliated at a lunch counter or bus. “Enough already,” we say of the blanket coverage by media of the Civil Rights movement. That’s because on today’s streets, whites aren’t randomly pulled over by metropolitan police officers. So yes, the Movement, by necessity, remains current, as does that for every minority. That’s not to say progress has not been made. In our lifetimes, blacks have won the same privileges of all Americans. No more separate drinking fountains, rest rooms, schools, or places to sit on a bus on in a restaurant. No more lynchings. Seems barbaric, doesn’t it. NOW SHOWING in a theater near you is the movie “The Butler.” See it. The storyline is of a black youth raised in the cotton fields who escapes slavery to work as a butler during eight presidential administrations over the course of 30 years at our nation’s White House. The butler’s mantra is to see, hear and say no evil as he waits on his white “superiors.” So when his son joins the Civil Rights Movement it’s to his father’s horror — mostly out of fear. Spoil alert: There’s a lesson here for everyone. IN A POLL by the Pew Research Center, the majority of blacks think Martin Luther King’s “Dream” remains an elusive goal. Remember, the dream is that African Americans have a right to “life, liberty and pursuit of happiness,” just as much as anyone else. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Lofty talk for just wanting to walk down a street without the cops looking crosswise at you. Today’s jails and prisons incarcerate one of every 10 black men. For whites males, the ratio is one to 61. Fair or not, the onus is on blacks to rise above racial stereotypes and social prejudices and prove they can graduate from high school and college at the same rate as other ethnicities. That they can wait until marriage to have children and be two-parent families. And that they can hold down fulltime jobs. On the flip side, law enforcement officers and the prison system should examine their anti-discrimination policies and punish inside acts of racial bias. And each us, in our quiet moments, need to reflect on King’s words, “Free at last, Free at last, Thank God almighty we are free at last,” and feel the joy that came from so much pain. — Susan Lynn

House spokesman Jay Carney as the Obama administration tried to bolster its case for possible military action against Syria within days, with intelligence agencies preparing to release intercepted

communications aimed at proving Bashar Assad perpetrated a largescale chemical weapons attack on civilians.

___ “Public safety is the priority, and we’ll take care of it.” — Gov. Jerry Brown responding to a fed-

eral court order to significantly reduce California’s prison population by proposing a $315 million plan to send thousands of inmates to private prisons and vacant county jail cells, hoping to avoid what he said would be a mass release of dangerous felons.

The groups are working to be approved for a 501(c)(3) certification, so donations will be recognized as taxdeductible. Ford said the construction of the playground will be a community effort, and volunteer work

weather made for a low turnout. To keep attendees cool committee member Cathy Allen said there will be a water slide. There are some new additions to the event this year. The car show will have a new class added to the roster. Registrants can enter motorcycles from 1900 to 2013. So far there are 15 car entries. There will also be a photo contest and is for all ages. Children 10 and under will receive a gold dollar

coin for participating. Photographers can enter open class photos or take photos that tie into the Colony Days theme “Where the Dust Never Settles.” The parade, a perennial favorite, begins at 11 a.m. Gene and Claudette Anderson, Colony, are the parade grand marshals. The basket auction is another crowd pleaser. Allen said there are around 10 different baskets for the auction this year. “There is a wide

variety of baskets,” she said. “They were donated by different people.” Some baskets have themed goodies inside. One has a summer theme and includes beach towels and flip flops. Another is a picnic theme. Allen said the money raised from the auction goes back into Colony Day funds to help sponsor next year’s event.

Hospital: gearing up for grand opening Continued from A1

Trustees objected to having to eventually implement what is a costly detection system, in terms of equipment and manpower — guards must also be stationed to inspect those coming and going. Alan Weber, county counselor and legal adviser to the trustees, said the hospital’s best policy is that in which it is least responsible for accidents. From that standpoint allowing concealed weapons is its most prudent course of action. IN OTHER news, Dr. Earl and Linda Walter, who previously were recognized for donating to the new hospital, have since added to their gift and requested the new hospital’s oncology department be named in their honor. Trustees did so. The hospital has signed on with Shared Medical Services to provide MRI scans. The truck will be at the hospital three days a week, including Saturdays. “We hope this will be particularly advantageous for those who work during the week,” said Ron Baker, chief executive officer of the hospital.

BUNOL, Spain (AP) — Thousands of people are splattering each other with tons of tomatoes in the annual “Tomatina” battle in recession-hit Spain, with the debtburdened town charging participants entry fees this year for the first time. Bunol town says some 20,000 people are taking part in today’s hour-long street bash, inspired by a food fight among kids back in 1945. Participants were this year charged 10 euros ($13) to foot the cost of the festival. Residents do not pay. Bunol, with 10,000 inhabitants, has a debt of some 5 million euros. The town said six trucks brought 130 tons of ripe tomatoes to the scene. Portable showers were set up for revelers to clean up after the battle.

Easy BBQ for the Labor Day weekend with Chef Hirsch By ERICA MARCUS Newsday

Summer entertaining should be no sweat. And for Labor Day, the season’s last holiday, many backyard hosts are looking for a menu that will impress the guests without taxing the cook. George Hirsch can help you make that happen. The Long Island, N.Y., chef, best known for his public television show, “Living It Up,� is all about fuss-free recipes and easy entertaining. “If I can do it, you can do it� is what Hirsch likes to say. FRESH TUNA TACOS WITH JOHNNYCAKES

Johnnycakes, made from cornmeal, are traditional New England flatbreads that stand in here for corn tortillas — and you could certainly substitute tortillas. Hirsch serves the accompaniments — caramelized onions, chopped olives and tomatoes, wedges of lime — separately so guests can customize their own tacos. 2 large onions Olive oil Salt

Chef George Hirsch For the johnnycakes: 1 cup corn meal 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups milk For the tuna: 8 (3- to 4-ounce) tuna steaks, at least 1 1/2 inches thick 3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme and/or oregano leaves 1 teaspoon black pepper Chopped Kalamata olives Chopped tomato Lime wedges 1. Caramelize the onions: Slice onions and place in a large saute pan with a few tablespoons olive oil and a big pinch of salt. Cover pan and cook over medium-low heat until they sweat out most of their moisture. When

they are limp and translucent, uncover pan, turn heat to medium and, stirring constantly, cook off water that has accumulated. When water has evaporated, reduce heat and, stirring frequently, cook until onions turn a mahogany brown. Reserve. 2. Johnnycakes: Preheat a griddle over medium heat (or set electric griddle to 340 to 360 degrees). In a bowl, com-

bine corn meal, sugar, salt and milk, and mix thoroughly. Film griddle with oil and test heat by adding a few drops of batter: it should sizzle. 3. Use a large spoon to drop batter onto griddle; cakes should be about 3 inches in diameter. Cook until edges turn lacy and brown, 3 to 4 minutes, then cook on other side for 2 to 3 minutes. Oil griddle if it gets dry. Makes about 12 johnny-

Texas A&M mum about Manziel’s status By KRISTIE RIEKEN The Associated Press

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) — Johnny Football was the elephant in the room Tuesday at Texas A&M. The seventh-ranked Aggies head into Saturday’s home opener against Rice with questions still swirling about whether Heisman Trophywinning quarterback Johnny Manziel will play against the Owls. The NCAA is investigating whether he was paid for his autograph, a potential violation of amateurism rules that could threaten his eligibility. It was the only thing anyone really wanted to talk about on Tuesday when the Aggies addressed the media. The topic, however, was off limits. Athletic director Eric Hyman said Monday night that he’d instructed everyone in the program not to talk about Manziel. And if that wasn’t clear enough, a member of the sports information department slowly and sternly read the statement, not once, but twice during the session. Reporters asked anyway, and coach Kevin Sumlin did

what Hyman asked. “We’re not discussing that,” he said. “I thought we went over that right from the beginning.” He later added that they have a plan for any number of situations that could happen with their players and team, and that they plan for the possible absence of players every week. ESPN, cit- Johnny ing an anony- Manziel mous source, reported that Manziel met with NCAA investigators over the weekend., also citing anonymous sources, reported that Manziel told the investigators he didn’t take money for his autograph. If Manziel doesn’t play against the Owls, the Aggies will use either junior Matt Joeckel or freshman Kenny Hill. Joeckel is more of a pocket passer and Hill is a dual-threat quarterback. Joeckel has thrown just 11 passes in his college career. Hill starred at Texas high school powerhouse Southlake Carroll last year.

fore the high-schoolers take the field at about 7 o’clock. “It’s just an opportunity to get everybody together, sort of a ‘Football Night in Iola’ type of thing,” IHS football coach Doug Kerr said. “Hopefully, we can establish something like this and see it grow.” Kerr developed Football Night as a means to see all three programs become healthier. He noted that the most successful middle school and

high school programs usually have thriving youth football leagues as well. Marty Taylor, middle school football coach, agreed. “It’s a neat way to show the kids how everybody is part of the same organization,” Taylor said. “It should be a lot of fun.” Josh Oberley, director of the youth football league, said his program has benefited already from Kerr’s support. “The kids have had a blast at his camps,” Oberley said.

“This is a great idea.” THE SEASONS for each program will get underway in early September. Iola High opens its season Sept. 7 at Cherryvale. The middle-schoolers will host another football jamboree scrimmage at about 6 p.m. Sept. 5 at the park. The Ponies open the regular season Sept. 12 at Independence. The youth league jamboree is Sept. 7 with regular season games beginning Sept. 10.

Shields, Gordon star in KC victory MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kansas City’s James Shields is accustomed to pitching in close games this season. He kept his team in the game until the Royals were able to break through late. Shields was sharp for 7 1-3 innings, Alex Gordon had three RBIs, and Kansas City scored five runs in the eighth inning to beat the Minnesota Twins 6-1 on Tuesday. “The way Shields was pitching, it was like, ‘Ok, just hold ‘em until we can break something open,’” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “Finally, in the eighth it got broken open.” Shields — the key part in the deal that sent top prospect Wil Myers to Tampa Bay in the offseason — struck out seven and notched his American-League best 22nd quality start. Shields (9-8) went over the .500 mark and only allowed one hit through seven innings before running into trouble and leaving in the eighth. While the wins haven’t been there for Shields, he’s pitched well. “I’ve got a ton of quality starts this year and I feel like I’ve been pitching well

all year,” Shields said. “The wins are going to come. I’m not really too worried about it. I’m just going to keep grinding out the rest of the season and hope for the best.” Kevin Correia struck out a season-high seven over seven shutout innings, but ended up with a no-decision. Brian Dozier had the Twins’ RBI. Seven consecutive Royals hitters reached base in a fiverun eighth that broke open a scoreless game and handed reliever Jared Burton (2-8) his third loss to Kansas City this season. The first two runs scored on a bloop single from Chris Getz and a Jarrod Dyson bunt.

Gordon followed with a basesclearing double down the right-field line that made it 5-0 and sent most of the fans at a steamy Target Field heading for the exits. Billy Butler hit his 14th home run in the ninth. After losing seven straight and damaging their playoff chances, the Royals have won three in a row. After walking Ryan Doumit in the second, Shields retired 14 of the next 15 batters and held the Twins until the offense got him some support. Wade Davis, the other pitcher Kansas City acquired in the Myers’ deal, hasn’t been nearly as effective and was demoted to the bullpen on Tuesday. Danny Duffy will be called up on today from Triple-A and take Davis’ slot in the rotation.

Royals, Chiefs fans debate whose faster: Charles or ‘Zoombiya’ By DAVE SKRETTA The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The challenge was laid down. All that’s keeping Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson and Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles from deciding the fastest man in Kansas City sports is about 300 yards of parking lot between Kauffman Stadium and Arrowhead Stadium. Probably the folks in charge of their teams, too. The idea of a match race came up when Dyson and a bunch of other Royals dropped in to watch part of a Chiefs practice last week. In his typical bravado, Dyson proclaimed that he could beat any of them in a foot race —

Jarrod Dyson

Jamaal Charles

including Charles, their Pro Ball running back. “I’m not afraid to race nobody,” said Dyson, who had swiped 25 bases in 60 games

heading into the Royals’ game Tuesday night in Minnesota. “I’ll tell you that straight up.” The race is unlikely to ever happen in the city that pro-

duced former 100-meter worldrecord holder Maurice Green. There’s too much injury risk to line them up just for fun. Sure is a compelling conversation piece, though. Dyson is the fleet-footed base-stealer best over shorter distances — say, the 90 feet that separates bags on a big league infield. Charles is the speedy back who excels with a nice runway to get going — say, the 100 yards from one end zone to the other. “If he puts a show on, I’m never going to back down,” Charles told The Associated Press after Tuesday afternoon’s practice, when asked of Dyson’s challenge. “Track’s my first love.” If both of them are up for it, might as well try to assess the

most intriguing match race in these parts since Seabiscuit took on War Admiral. Dyson says he doesn’t put much stock in 40-yard dashes, but the 5-foot-9, 160-pound sparkplug thinks he could run it in 4.3 seconds. Charles, at 5-11 and nearly 200 pounds, turned a 4.38 when he was clocked at the NFL combine in 2008, following his senior year with the Longhorns. Dyson isn’t as polished a sprinter as Charles, but he certainly has speed to burn. The big league average for a player running from home to first base is 4.2 seconds for lefthanded hitters. Dyson covers the distance nearly a half-second faster. The average time See RACE? | Page B6

No more couches on porches The Lawrence Journal-World

The tradition of front porch couches at student apartments is on the way out in Lawrence. But more than students may end up caring. City commissioners Tuesday narrowly passed a citywide ban of upholstered furniture on porches, decks and patios, after fire officials said the frequent practice in student neighborhoods created a fire risk. Now, disobeying the new ban may create a risk for landlords.

City officials clarified that in the case of rental properties, it will be the landlords — not tenants — who ultimately face any fine for violating the new law. “The property owner will have the responsibility of having a good lease to ensure that the property remains in compliance with the code,” City Manager David Corliss told commissioners. Technically fines can start at $100 per day, but city officials said they first simply

would ask tenants and then property owners to remove the outlawed furniture. The issue of fines and enforcement were two of many issues that city commissioners struggled with at their weekly meeting. Commissioners approved the ban on a 3-2 vote, with Commissioners Mike Amyx and Jeremy Farmer opposing. Both commissioners said city codes have adequate language prohibiting indoor furniture from being placed on porches, decks and patios.

Teen’s bail $3 million SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Bail was set at $3 million Tuesday for a 16-year-old boy who is charged with killing a World War II veteran and contends the man was beaten to death because he shorted the teen and another boy on a sale of crack cocaine. The allegation was sharply rebutted by friends of Delbert Belton, the 88-year-old veteran known as “Shorty.” “Shorty never did no drugs,” said Ted Denison, a friend who added that the defendants were “smearing his name.” The drug-dealing claim is in a letter police found after they arrested Kenan AdamsKinard early Monday morning, Spokane County Deputy Prosecutor Larry Haskell said during Tuesday’s court hearing. Both teens are charged with first-degree murder and firstdegree robbery. The charges carry a potential life sentence. Police said Belton, who was wounded in the Battle of Okinawa, was beaten in his vehicle as he waited for a friend in a parking lot.

Boxer Ali to honor virtuous deeds LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Boxing great Muhammad Ali wants to recognize the greatness of people waging their own fights for social justice. The former three-time heavyweight champion plans to be in his hometown of Louisville, Ky., for the presentation of the first-ever Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards on Oct. 3. The award winners were not immediately identified but include people who have fought for gender equity in Afghanistan, started a school for orphaned children in Uganda and has provided shoes for the homeless in the U.S., the Muhammad Ali Center said Tuesday. The awards revolve around core principles espoused by Ali, with an emphasis on the humanitarian works of young adults, the center said. Ali’s wife said the awards embody her husband’s efforts to inspire good deeds by others. “Of course he is proud of his accomplishments in the ring, but Muhammad’s proudest moments are those where he is able to touch the lives of others in positive and sometimes profound ways,” Lonnie Ali said in a statement. “Muhammad is a living example of how one person can inspire and improve the lives of others.” A half-dozen awards will honor people ages 35 and under for making significant contributions to the causes of peace, social justice and other humanitarian janeefforts, the center said. Awards will be given for exemplifying each principle — confidence, conviction, dedication, giving, respect and spirituality. “The Muhammad Ali

Humanitarian Awards is his opportunity to formally recognize some of these young people for the good works they do and to encourage them and others to begin and continue to do good in their own comAli munities and hopefully extend that good to the global community,” Lonnie Ali said. One winner has fought for gender equality in Afghanistan by promoting women’s sports, the Ali Center said. Another started a community school in Uganda that educates orphans and children from families touched by HIV and AIDS. Another co-founded a nonprofit group that offers free sports clinics for special-needs children and sensitivity training to help other students understand the challenges they face. Other presentations will be for a Humanitarian of the Year Award, a Lifetime Achievement Award and a Kentucky Humanitarian of the Year Award. Ali and his wife are members of the selection committee. Award presenters will include Ali’s daughter Laila Ali, a boxing champion herself, the center said. The awards ceremony will be at the Galt House Hotel in downtown Louisville. It will be part of a three-day celebration at the Ali Center. On Oct. 2, the Ali Center said, it will host the U.S. premiere of the HBO Films presentation of “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight.”

Needing someone is not caving Dear Carolyn:

I feel I’m at the very edge of what is survivable as far as loneliness. I’ve always thought it preferable to be on my own than to settle for someone, and thought that leading a generally fulfilling life should be enough. I have a fulfilling career. I travel. I make time for friends. I pursue my interests and hobbies. But, even on the best day filled with interesting people and activities, it’s a rare night that I don’t cry myself to sleep over this. My parents died several years ago and, for various reasons, I have no contact with siblings. I also feel like every few years, I have to make new friends, as the older ones settle into long-term relationships. These friends still make time for me, but they just have less time to give while I have all the time in the world. So, in my worst, feeling-sorriest-for-myself moments, I think I’m not the most important person in anyone’s life, and no amount of selfhelp cliches can convince me there’s any other solution than finding a trustworthy partner, even if he’s not really who I want. At what point can I give myself permission to say that overwhelming loneliness is worse than a low level of dissatisfaction with the wrong person? Alone At 5, you wanted someone who’d play with you. At 11, you had a crush on a guy’s hair. At 19, a nice butt was a bonus you felt entitled to seek out. At 26, wow, an educated, employed guy who felt the same way as you about kids? When you updated these standards by which you once judged men, did you need “permission” to do it?

desires have evolved, and your family has dissolved. Please don’t apologize for rewriting your definition of attractiveness to reflect a basic desire for steady companionship. As long as you don’t force yourself to keep seeing someone whose company you don’t enjoy or who mistreats you, your “low level of dissatisfaction” is likely to be with mannerisms, résumé items or beliefs that used to be

important but don’t seem so anymore — all facts-of-life companionship. And when someone’s companionship brings more pleasure to you than your life does now, will you still be able to say, “He’s not really what I want”? You’re not comparing men with a fear of being alone — i.e., settling — you’re comparing them with a fresh knowledge of it. Also: The words you use, “trustworthy partner,” are hardly license to throw a bag over the first man you see. You’ll have to be as selective as ever to find this person, since trust requires two quality people plus time, and partnership


requires those things plus mutual commitment and compatibility. Given your vulnerability, in fact, please be pickier than ever. Just be picky about different things: Don’t budge an inch on the way someone treats you (or the usual bellwethers: exes, waiters and pets). Sobbing in bed alone may seem like hitting bottom, but imagine sobbing while an uncaring other watches TV two rooms away.

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 five-star puzzle.

Youngster stuns former champ NEW YORK (AP) — From the earnest explanation of why Gary the Snail is her favorite “SpongeBob SquarePants” character to the name-check of rapper Lil Wayne, Victoria Duval made quite clear that she is very much a 17-year-old kid. One who just so happened to stun 2011 champion Sam Stosur in the first round of the U.S. Open. Overcoming the sort of nerves that derive

from never before having played this highly ranked an opponent — let alone Victorial Duval beaten one — and never before having won a match at a Grand Slam tournament, Duval hopped up and down with arms overhead after pulling off her big surprise at Flushing Meadows, a 5-7,

6-4, 6-4 victory over the 11th-seeded Stosur. “I don’t even remember match point,” the 296th-ranked American said Tuesday. “I guess I was really happy. You could tell by all the jumping I did.” Top-seeded Novak Djokovic saved seven of eight break points Tuesday night to start the U.S. Open with a 6-1, 6-2, 6-2 victory over former junior world No. 1, Ricardas Berankis of Lithuania.

time for a good base stealer taking second is about 3.2 seconds. Dyson can do it in about 2.6. Royals manager Ned Yost said he’s “definitely the fastest” player in the big leagues, and Yost has seen some quick ones. He broke into the big leagues as a player in 1980, and as a coach watched the likes of Otis Nixon and Kenny Lofton — No. 15 and No. 16 on the career stolen bases list, respectively — when he was an assistant coach with the Atlanta Braves. Even the Twitter handle that Dyson uses sounds fast: @mrzoombiya. Don’t get it? Say it out loud. “I don’t care if you’re a sprinter or whatever,” Dyson said, “you’re not getting past Mr. Zoombiya. You’re going to have to come at me over some distance.” Turns out that’s precisely where Charles has an advantage. He was a bronze medalist in the 400-meter hurdles at the 2003 world

youth championships, and won state titles in the 110- and 300-meter hurdles at Memorial High School in Port Arthur, Texas. Charles took his speed to Austin, where he was an All-American multiple times over for the Longhorns. The former junior Olympian was fourth in the 60 meters at the NCAA indoors in 2006, and fifth in the 100 at the outdoors later that summer. Among those who edged Charles in the 100 was Walter Dix, a two-time world silver

medalist and two-time Olympic bronze medalist. Even now, Charles lights up when he’s asked about his “pretty elite” track career. He openly thought about returning to it during the NFL lockout a couple years ago. “Not pretty elite. I was junior worlds,” Charles clarified. “It’s not that I’m fast. I have track history. Track is my first love. I’m not going to back down from a race.” Not against Dyson. Not against anyone.
