ALLEN COUNTY REGIONAL HOSPITAL
License policy changed
Names needed for wall
Karen Works is getting a little anxious. She is putting together digital donor display packages for the new Allen County Regional Hospital. Works needs information from several contributors of $1,200 or more to the Uniting for Excellence Capital Campaign. Donors of that level qualify to have photographs and information about themselves posted on a digital wall at the new hospital. Crystal Hall, of Picture Perfect, will take photos of contributors who haven’t provided images, free of charge, Friday in the Assembly Room on the lower level of Allen County Courthouse. Hall will be there from noon to 1 p.m. and 5 to 6:30 p.m. “That will be a really good opportunity” to complete that phase of the digital recognition package, Works said. She also needs personal information. The absolute deadline to get information to Works is Sept. 27, for it to be displayed on the wall near the entrance to the hospital when it is dedicated on Oct. 18. Works said donors could contact her by way of her cell phone, 620-496-6728. The Uniting for Excellence fundraising will continue, she stressed, and that the deadline for information is for those who have given, or will before then.

With a goal in mind... Committee aims to get county on its feet once again By STEVEN SCHWARTZ firstname.lastname@example.org
Some of the area’s most involved citizens have drafted goals to help bring economic development to Allen County’s communities, and they believe there must be a collective effort to make these goals a reality. The Allen County Economic Development Committee is a group of appointed members that has been meeting once a month since February. The goal is to look at general trends, as well as specifics in the county, to generate a game plan to bring citizens, businesses and industries to the area. Corey Schinstock, John
Contractor behind Navy mass shooting By BRETT ZONGKER, ERIC TUCKER AND LOLITA C. BALDOR Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — The deadly attack at the Washington Navy Yard was carried out by one of the military’s own: a defense contract employee and former Navy reservist who used a valid pass to get onto the installation and started firing inside a building, killing 12 people before he was slain in a gun battle with police. The motive for the mass shooting — the deadliest on a military installation in the U.S. since the tragedy at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009 — was a mystery, investigators said. But a profile of the lone gunman, a 34-year-old Aaron Alexis, was coming into focus. He was described as a Buddhist who had also had flares of rage, complained
about the Navy and being a victim of discrimination and had several run-ins with law enforcement, including two shootings. U.S. law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that Alexis had been suffering a host of serious mental issues, including paranoia and a sleep disorder. He also had been hearing voices in his head, the officials said. Alexis had been treated since August by the Veterans Administration for his mental problems, the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the criminal investigation in the case was continuing. The Navy had not declared him mentally unfit, which would have rescinded a security clearance Alexis had from his earlier time in the Navy Reserves. See SHOOTING | Page A2

Masterson, Glenn Buchholz, Bill Maness, David Lee, David Toland, Shelia Lampe and Larry Tucker sat around the conference room table at Thrive Allen County’s offices during the monthly meeting Monday night (Larry Manes, also a member, could not attend the meeting). While not set in stone, Toland said the committee has drafted three goals they believe are essential for Allen County to remain a viable community: 1. Increase Allen County’s population to 14,000 by 2020 (the current population is approximately 13,319) 2. Improve business climate, with a goal of 400 net new jobs by 2020 3.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas no longer plans to require people renewing driver’s licenses to produce proof that they’re living in the U.S. legally, Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said Monday, confirming a policy shift with implications for the state’s administration of a separate proof-ofcitizenship requirement for new voters. Jordan said in an interview with The Associated Press that the Department of Revenue, which oversees licensing, will develop a program in coming months in which drivers renewing their licenses can voluntarily present birth certificates, passports or other citizenship documents and have it noted on their licenses. Kansas law already requires people obtaining a new license to provide proof of their lawful residency. State officials had previously planned for such a requirement to be extended to all license renewals under a 2005 federal anti-terrorism law designed to make states’ licenses more secure. But federal officials recently declared that Kansas is among 20 states complying with the federal statute, even without requiring proof of legal residency to renew a driver’s license. Many Kansas legislators had assumed the requirement would be universal for both renewing and obtaining a new driver’s license when they enacted a state law taking effect this year See LICENSES | Page A6

Parsons hospital settles on lawsuit PARSON, Kan. — Labette Health has been removed as a defendant in a civil lawsuit over alleged negligence in the death of a teenager who died from injuries he suffered in a 2009 motorcycle accident. According to the Parsons Sun, terms of the settlement that involved the countyowned hospital remain secret and the hospital’s CEO, Jodi Schmidt, would not release information. Teresa Shepeard filed the lawsuit on behalf of her son, Joshua Shepeard, who died at Freeman Hospital, Joplin. Named in the lawsuit
with Labette Health were Labette Health Ambulance Service, Drs. Jerry Bouman and Michael Farris and the air ambulance company that carried Shepeard from Labette Health to Freeman Hospital. The lawsuit alleges Joshua Shepeard bled to death and that those involved in his treatment, named in the suit, were negligent. Michael Merriam, a Topeka attorney who specializes in public records cases, told the Sun information about the settlement should be made public, since he hospital is owned by the county.

Shooting: 12 killed in Navy yard spree Continued from A1 Family members told investigators Alexis was being treated for his mental issues. The officials also said there has been no connection to international or domestic terrorism and investigators have found no manifesto or other writings suggesting a political or religious motivation for the shooting. Monday’s onslaught at a single building at the highly secure Navy Yard unfolded about 8:20 a.m. in the heart of the nation’s capital, less than four miles from the White House and two miles from the Capitol. It put all of Washington on edge. Mayor Vincent Gray said there was no indication it was a terrorist attack, but he added that the possibility had not been ruled out. “This is a horrific tragedy,” Gray said. Alexis carried three weapons: an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun, and a handgun that he took from a police officer at the scene, according to two federal law enforcement officials who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation. The AR15 is the same type of rifle used in last year’s mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school that killed 20 students and six women. The weapon was also used in the shooting at a Colorado movie theater

A convert to Buddhism who grew up in New York City, Alexis had had run-ins with the law over shooting incidents in 2004 and 2010 in Fort Worth and Seattle and was portrayed in police reports as seething with anger. The Washington Navy Yard is a sprawling, 41acre labyrinth of buildings and streets protected by armed guards and metal detectors, and employees have to show their IDs at doors and gates. More than 18,000 people work there. The rampage took place at Building 197, the headquarters for Naval Sea Systems Command, which buys, builds and maintains ships and submarines. About 3,000 people work at headquarters, many of them civilians. Witnesses on Monday described a gunman opening fire from a fourth-floor overlook, aiming down on people on the main floor, which includes a glass-walled cafeteria. Others said a gunman fired at them in a third-floor hallway. Patricia Ward, a logistics-management specialist, said she was in the cafeteria getting breakfast. “It was three gunshots straight in a row — pop, pop, pop. Three seconds later, it was pop, pop, pop, pop, pop, so it was like about a total of seven gunshots, and we just started running,” Ward said.

Beauty really is more than just skin-deep The Miss America competition this year brought out the worst in people. As a child I was taught if you can’t say something nice you shouldn’t say anything at all. It’s a shame some Miss America viewers didn’t get the memo. Sunday night, viewers across the nation tuned into ABC to watch the Miss America pageant. I personally find beauty pageants to be dull, but this year the pageant piqued my interest because of Miss Kansas, Theresa Vail, who grabbed the nation’s attention because she “broke the pageant stereotype.” The 22-year-old tattooed Kansas Army National Guard sergeant went far in the competition, but came up short when it came to taking home the crown. The contest came down to Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, and Miss California, Crystal Lee. Davuluri won the crown, making her the first Indian-American to win the title. She is applying to medical school with the $50,000 scholarship she won. Literally seconds after Davuluri was crowned the new Miss America, hundreds flocked to social media and the insults flew. Folks on Twitter bristled: “And the Arab wins Miss America Classic,” “Miss America right now or miss Al Qaeda?”, “Darn ... I wish Miss Kansas would’ve won! Real American woman!” and “Miss New York is an Indian ... with all do respect, this is America.”
With all do respect, please have some class. I’m aware that these are their opinions and if they want to appear ignorant more power to ’em. However, I am appalled that people would hide behind social media and be hateful to someone they don’t even know. Just Nina Davuluri because someone has a dark complexion does not mean they aren’t American. Just because someone has a different heritage than you does not mean they are a terrorist. And just because someone doesn’t have blonde hair and blue eyes does not mean she isn’t a “real American woman.” The negative comments were brought to Davuluri’s attention in a news conference. “I have to rise above that,” she said. “I always viewed myself as first and foremost American.” It’s great that she can look past the hurtful words. As a society we need to have more love and respect for one another. Our country is made up of diverse individuals and we should all celebrate that fact. I hope in future pageants viewers can applaud winners instead of tear them down with hateful words. Beauty comes in all forms. Congratulations Miss Davuluri! You deserve it. — Kayla Banzet
Fall festivals boon for area Fall festivals didn’t originate in our neck of the woods, but a legion of folks who care enough to give their very best have made local ones top-rung events. We have three major festivals remaining, starting with Moran Day Saturday. Next up is Humboldt’s storied Biblesta Parade and associated Christian activities Oct. 5. Then, on Oct. 17-19 come Iola’s FarmCity Days. Last weekend Elsmore Day occupied folks with a hankerin’ for fun in the southeast part of Allen County, while Kincaid’s 103rd annual Free Fair started on Thursday and came to a head with fun, games and a bang-up parade Saturday. All are models of what should be done to bring a crowd to town, and entertain them once there. The festivals also are a means of generating money for community projects. That is never more evident than what occurs each year through efforts of the Kincaid Lions Club. Saturday, while flipping burgers on a sizzling grill inside the new Lions Club pavilion, Bill Johnston recounted just how important the Kincaid Fair is to the community’s well-being. Johnston said about 2,000 hamburgers and scores of bowls of chili would be made and sold from 800 pounds of ground beef. Accompanying them were golden-brown fries made from a starting hoard of
slightly more than 900 pounds of potatoes. And to top off the meal were generous slices of several kinds of pies, homemade by wives of the Lions members. Previous fundraisers and sponsors paid for the fixings, meaning all money from Lions concession sales went directly to help the community. Similar fundraising is a part of other fall events. When the bulk of FarmCity Days activities unfold Oct. 19 in Iola, a multitude of booths will dot the courthouse lawn. Some will hold arts and crafts, privately made and sold, while food booths will be manned by local groups and organizations using the venue to raise money for all sorts of positive things to help make Iola and the area more hospitable for those who live here and those who visit. While a small number of people, in relation to all who participate, will be responsible for the fundraising, we all can have a hand in making the future a little brighter. Dig into a walking taco, sink your teeth into a inviting slice of freshly made pie and sip a drink. While you’re at it, have a good time. That’s at the heart of all the fall festivals. Also, take time to give those who have put in untold hours to make their event of choice as good as it is a hearty pat on the back. — Bob Johnson

As part of the monitoring that continues today, some Louisiana schools must balance the racial makeup of students and teachers and, in some districts, bus kids across town. A lot has changed during the last 40 years, and larger schools have been able to extract themselves from the federal mandates. Others have not. Those are the schools the Justice Department is targeting. If those schools lose students to private schools, will the racial balance be disrupted?

Positively empower youth Safely preserve canned salsa Many of us work with children on a regular basis, either as a parent, family member, teacher, coach, youth group leader, etc. How can we classify our interaction? Are we always positive? Do we provide them with the essential elements for positive youth development? Now that I have you thinking, it is important to discuss positive youth development. Positive youth development (PYD) is a comprehensive framework outlining the supports young people need in order to be successful. Researching the Essential Elements: Key Ingredients for Program Success compares raising a child to growing a plant. Like other living things, youth need nourishing, supportive and protective environments where they can grow to be healthy and contributing adults. While some struggle in social environments (home, school, clubs, teams, community) that lack the necessary elements for growth, most grow up in environments rich in the essential elements that support healthy development.
Jennifer Murphy Extension Agent for 4-H Adults are the primary â€œcaretakersâ€? of those environments. Those same adults must be intentional and skilled about enriching settings with elements that lead to positive development. For example, 4-H is one of the best known and most effective development systems, providing youngsters with those essential elements. Within 4-H are eight essential elements identified in early studies that must be present for positive and effective experiences and opportunities benefiting youth: â€” a positive relationship with a caring adult â€” a safe emotional and physical environment

â€” an inclusive environment â€” engagement in learning, â€” opportunity for mastery â€” opportunity to see oneself as an active participant in the future â€” opportunity for selfdetermination â€” opportunity to value and practice service for others. Experts agree parents, service providers, community members and decision makers need to provide opportunities for young people in environments intentionally filled with positive features. Can you say you are providing a positive environment? I challenge everyone to look at your community and volunteer your time to aid the upcoming generations in making the choice to be the best versions of themselves and setting strong goals for the future.

Tomatoes and peppers are finally at peak production in local gardens. One popular way to preserve them is to prepare and can homemade salsa. While tomatoes are an acidic food, adding low-acid foods such as peppers and onions changes the acid content. Instead of using a tested recipe, many canners like to get creative and make up their own recipe. This, however, can be unsafe. Here are some tips to preserve salsa safely: 1. Use a tested recipe. These can be found in Extension publications or in reliable sources such as the Ball Blue Book, USDA Complete Guide to Home Canning (www. usda.gov and search for canning recipes), and the National Center for Home Food Preservation. These salsa recipes use water bath processing. Do not change the amounts of ingredients. You can change the types of peppers to increase or decrease heat but use the amount specified in the recipe. Recipes may call for added vinegar, lemon or lime juices, or other
Kathy McEwan Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences
ingredients that also will impact the acidity of the overall recipe. Failing to balance the acid level when mixing ingredients in salsa can create an environment in which foodborne bacteria â€“ including Clostridium botulinum (Botulism), can grow. Packaged salsa mixes, such as Mrs. Wages or Ball, are also safe to use. 2. Freeze salsa. If you like to be more creative and want to preserve your own salsa recipe, a safe preservation method is freezing. This method will increase the wateriness when thawed. You can drain the tomatoes of excess juice prior to freezing to help reduce the liquid. The salsa may also be a little mushy when thawed but will still have a fresh-made flavor. Homemade salsa can typically be frozen
for up to 12 months. 3. Canning untested recipes. The only way to can untested salsa recipes is to use a pressure canner. Use the processing time for the ingredient that has the longest processing time. For example, processing a mixture of tomatoes, onions and peppers will be based on the onions because they have the longest process time. 4. Do not use open kettle canning. This method involves heating the food, then pouring into the jars and screwing on the lid. No further heat processing is done. This is NOT a safe canning method because bacteria, yeasts and mold can still be present and can lead to spoilage. Home-canned foods should be used within 12 months for the best quality and flavor. If a food product looks or smells suspect discard it without tasting it.

Just a few days from now, fall will be upon us. Overall, I would say that it was a good summer here in Southeast Kansas. Not having days upon days of 100 degree temperatures is a plus in my book! As summer is coming to an end, so are many of our summer annuals. Now it is time to think about garden chrysanthemums to get us some beautiful fall color in the landscape. With flower colors ranging from yellow to gold, orange, bronze, deep red, maroon and various shades of pinks and purples, mums really are hard to beat for fall color. The fall flowering garden mum is native to China and is actually a member of the sunflower plant family. There are two types of zqmums, â€œgardenâ€? and â€œflorist.â€? Garden mums, also known as â€œhardyâ€? mums, are typically available in stores during the spring and should be planted in the spring. Florist mums are more for ornamental purposes and are usually the type found in stores at the start of the fall season. This type of mum is not as hardy as the garden mum and when planted outdoors, frost often ruins the display of flowers before the plant has totally flowered out. The reason for this is because it takes 8 to 14 weeks of shortened daylight in the fall before florist mums

flower. This is compared to the 5 to 7 weeks that a garden mum needs to flower. If you purchase garden mums right now for fall display, make sure you plant them early â€“ at least six weeks before a killing frost so that the plants can become established. At planting, place them 18 to 24 inches apart and plant at the same depth as they were grown in the pot. If the plant seems to be root bound once removed from the pot, the root ball should be scored so the roots will spread out into the soil. Keep the soil moist but not soggy for the first couple of weeks after planting while the mum becomes established. When selecting a location for mums, keep in mind that they prefer a full sun location. The location should also provide a degree of wind protection. Mums have fine, shallow roots and therefore, should not be planted close to trees and shrubs because the mumâ€™s roots cannot compete with larger plants. Wet locations should also be avoided because extended periods of root wetness can cause diseases. Winter protection is essential for mum survival through the winter. Donâ€™t prune the plants back in the fall. Some
PIQUA (620) 468-2535
research has shown that garden mums survive the winter better if old foliage is left standing through the winter. Mulch is the best insurance for overwintering mums. It helps keep the soil uniformly cold after it has become frozen, thus eliminating the alternate freezingthawing cycle and the resulting soil heaving. Soil heaving actually kills more plants than the occasional sub-zero winter temperatures because plants are literally heaved out of the ground and the roots die from exposure. Cover with mulch in November or early December when the soil surface freezes. Once established, mums should be fertilized each spring when the shoots first begin to emerge through the soil. Pinching off the end of each stem when they are 6 inches tall, and again each time new branches have grown out 6 inches, will produce bushy, wellrounded plants. Pinching can be done until July 10 and then branches should be allowed to grow out and bloom. If mums lack flowers, possible causes could be insufficient sun, fertilizer or water. Late pinching and competition from nearby trees or shrubs can also be a culprit. Unusually hot or cold weather in late August and September also effects flower production.

dents,” he said. “I want to have my students write to other students out of state or preferably out of the country. It’s my secret goal I’ve been hoarding and I think the students would gain a worldly perspective.” His freshman classes have just finished reading “Of Mice and Men” and learned about the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. His sophomores started the year by jumping into reading strategies. As high school years approached, Turner’s family moved to Kansas. He attended Salina Central High School for all four years and it was there that he excelled in cross country. He still enjoys cross country and is the assistant coach for the IHS cross country team. “I jumped at the
chance to coach,” he said. “It’s one of the reasons I came down here. I was very lucky to get that opportunity.” This year a middle school cross country team was added to the district. Seventh- and eighth-grade students practice with the high school runners. WHEN IT came to choosing an elective to teach, Turner picked photography. In his course students are learning styles of photography and basic editing skills. Turner said he himself is still an amateur at the subject but enjoys it. “A lot of research goes into it,” he said. “We’re learning side by side.” He earned his degree in secondary education from Kansas State University and graduated in December 2012.

home he was a substitute teacher. This is his first year full time teaching and he has a few goals for himself. “I don’t want to be too busy where I’m not having fun,” he said. In his spare time he likes to take advantage of what Iola has to offer. He said he’s always at the sporting events and he does a lot of bicycling. “I love that Iola has the Prairie Spirit Trail,” he said. He also cooks, is a big movie buff and likes to read and write in his free time. “I play guitar, bass and piano,” he said. “I’ve been playing for 10 years now.” The community has impressed Turner. “This community really helps the school,” he said. “It means a lot to teachers to have that backup and line of defense in the home.”

to mandate that new voters provide proof of their U.S. citizenship when registering. Lawmakers believed having the requirement in place for driver’s licenses would make it easier to administer the rule for new voters. But the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, meeting resistance from states, repeatedly delayed implementation of the federal “Real ID” requirement for driver’s licenses. Jordan said his agency responded to concerns that some Kansas residents wouldn’t be able to produce the necessary documents — and would be without a valid driver’s license — as well as to cues from DHS that it wouldn’t, for example, block people from flying if they had a license that didn’t meet the federal “Real ID” policy. “The way Homeland
Security is framing this now, that may be fine to get you through the airport gate,” Jordan said. “We just want to make it convenient for Kansans, and this seems the best way to do it.” The department’s decision comes amid an ongoing debate over the proof-of-citizenship rule for new voters. The registrations of about 17,000 prospective voters are on hold because they haven’t yet provided the proper papers to election officials. They can’t legally cast ballots until they do.
House Elections Committee Chairman Scott Schwab, an Olathe Republican, said Jordan’s comments Monday were the first he’d heard that GOP Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration had shifted its plans on driver’s licenses. He said lawmakers based the election law on the original driver’s license plans, “and now they’re backpedaling.” “When they change direction without letting us know that they’re changing direction, it’s disappointing,” Schwab said.

Goals: committee addresses economy Continued from A1
tals of economic development,” Toland said of the three goals. While lofty, the committee agreed the goals are not only achievable, but necessary for Allen County to keep its “head above water.” “ONE OF our goals is to not become a prairie national forest park,” Tucker said as the rest of the committee laughed at the concept. Tucker is the city administrator for Humboldt, just one of the communities represented by the group; there are representatives from Iola, Humboldt, Moran, LaHarpe and Gas. Masterson said the group has begun to function well, and original meetings helped everyone become more acquainted with each other’s mannerisms. Toland said there can be the misconception that communities will default towards competition before cooperation, and the committee has worked to build trust so they can work together — it is essential to reach goals. “It can be overwhelming sometimes,” Masterson said. Lampe, director of the Iola Area Chamber of Commerce, said members are working together for the betterment of the region, which will ultimately benefit each and every community individually in Allen County. “Working as a region, we have a louder voice,” she said. One of the group’s main goals is to bring educated youth back into the community. One of the ways they can understand why people come and go, is by researching trends and generating reports. The committee’s staff, which Toland admitted is made up entirely of himself, researches demographics and information to bring to the committee each month. This is how the committee generates their ideas. “They have to be generated from somewhere, so why not here,” Toland said. “We have representatives from across the county.” The funneling of ideas has been critical to the process, and the commit-
tee members said meeting together has helped them bounce ideas off of each other. THE ULTIMATE goal is to understand why the population has been in decline steadily for over 100 years in Allen County, and take action to reverse the trend. “Some communities succeed and some flounder,” Tucker said. “We want to be the county that survives,” Schinstock replied. The committee is banking on the people in the communities to take action and realize that Tucker’s notion of national park where Allen
County used to be may not be far off if goals such as these are not taken seriously. “We need every community to commit to these goals,” Toland said. Different communities in the county are at different levels of progress and development, Lee said, but the committee believes these goals can do nothing but improve the economy in Allen County. The members are taking any action they can to get an idea of what needs to be done to help the county. During Monday’s meeting, Lee was responsible for mak-
ing a presentation on broadband connections and what they mean for high-speed Internet in rural communities. Education is the first step in the process. Committee members are willing to listen to any feedback Allen Countians have on their goals. Toland said any of the committee members may be contacted individually, or Thrive Allen County’s offices at 365-8128. The committee hopes to have these goals “written in stone” by the end of the year, then its members can work on implementation — a step toward progress.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Royals ace James Shields peered in at the Indians’ Yan Gomes, who had stepped to the plate with two runners aboard in the fourth inning of a nip-and-tuck game between playoff contenders. When Gomes swung and missed at strike three, Shields roared like a lion as he stalked off the mound, the intensity of meaningful September baseball etched across his face. Shields wound up going six innings Monday night, and
Salvador Perez led a scrappy Kansas City offense that eventually pulled away for a 7-1 victory in the opener of a pivotal three-game series. Shields struck out a seasonhigh 10 for the Royals (79-71), who moved within 2 1/2 games of the AL’s second wild-card berth. The Indians (81-69) remained a half-game back of Texas, which lost to Tampa Bay earlier in the night in a matchup of teams leading the wild-card race. “Every game is important,” Shields said. “This is what we live for, this is what we play for, September baseball, and hopefully we have a chance to go to the playoffs.” Shields (12-9) allowed only Lonnie Chisenhall’s solo homer before turning the game over to his stingy bullpen.

Red Devils triumph over NEO By RICHARD LUKEN firstname.lastname@example.org
Allen Community College’s volleyball team picked an opportunity to kick its level of play up a notch. The Red Devils, in the midst of their busiest stretch of the 2013 season, came back with a flourish Monday evening after dropping the second of the four-game match to visiting Northeastern Oklahoma, and falling behind briefly to start the third. “We talked about what doing that was effective,” Red Devil head coach Jessica Peters said. “We knew we needed to quit waiting for them to give us points and start earning points for ourselves.” Allen overcame an early 8-3 deficit in the third game, and strung together four straight points later on to win, 25-19.
Sarah Charbonneau, defensive specialist and libero for Allen Community College, lunges for the ball Monday. The momentum built from there as the Red Devils put the finishing touches on their 25-22, 17-25, 25-19, 25-15 triumph.
The victory lifts the Red Devils to 5-7 on the season. More importantly, “we’re See ALLEN | Page B3

Early byes allow Big 12 coaches to adjust strategies By LUKE MEREDITH The Associated Press
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The season is three weeks old, and yet there seems to be as many questions marks in the Big 12 now as there were in August.
It’s probably a good thing that nearly half the league has the weekend off. Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU and Iowa State started bye weeks on Monday — and each is doing its best to take advantage of its early-season break.

Chiefs flying high after 2-0 start KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs were about 20 minutes removed from a victory over the Cowboys that allowed them to match their victory total from all of last season when questions immediately shifted to Thursday night’s game in Philadelphia. Turns out that was about 20 minutes more than they needed. “Our mindset is to go 3-0,” wide receiver Dwayne Bowe said. “We want to go 4-0 in the first quarter, that’s what coach is preaching and we all have that in our mind.” Even seconds after the kind of uplifting win that so eluded the Chiefs last season. They pushed their record to 2-0 with a 17-16 victory, just the second time since 2005 the franchise has started off with a pair of wins. In any other week, coach
You don’t know what play it’s going to be that makes a difference of the course of the game. — Alex Smith, Chiefs quarterback
Andy Reid might give everyone a day off after such a win. Instead, the coaching staff convened Sunday night to start studying film of the Eagles, and they were back at the training facility Monday to finish off their game plan. “Every coach tells you these Thursday nights, it’s a quick turnaround, and you just have to go,” said Reid, who has the added stress of facing the team that fired
him after 14 seasons. “It’s something you have to do. You buckle down and make sure you get it done.” So far, the Chiefs have done that quite admirably. In a win at Jacksonville and a come-from-behind victory over the Cowboys, a defense that returns four Pro Bowl players has allowed just one touchdown. It’s yielding a shade below 250 yards a game, fourth best in the league, and already has racked up nine sacks. Then there’s the offense, which has taken advantage of the luxurious field position. “You have to battle,” quarterback Alex Smith said. “You don’t know what play it’s going to be that makes a difference of the course of the game.

Royals: Shields Ks 10 in win Continued from B1
Wade Davis, Luke Hochevar and Tim Collins did the rest in a steady drizzle. Perez finished with three hits and was among six different players to drive in a run for Kansas City, which is chasing its first postseason berth since winning the 1985 World Series. “We have the talent to compete each and every night,” said Lorenzo Cain, who drove in one of the runs. “You need a little luck every now and then, but we have the talent to compete. Scott Kazmir (8-9) gave up four runs in 5-plus innings for the Indians. He didn’t get a whole lot of help from his offense, which racked up a seasonhigh 17 strikeouts. “I did everything I could,” Kazmir said. “I battled my butt off to get where I was.” Accustomed to pitching in important games, Shields kept the Indians guessing all night. He fanned three in the fifth after Chisenhall went deep, and the only other time he was in trouble was the first, when Shields stranded

runners on second and third. “He knows how to handle his emotions and channel it to his benefit, but he also knows how to transfer it to his teammates,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He knows what’s at stake and he’s getting after it. He’s into it.” Billy Butler started the scoring by driving in Emilio Bonifacio with a two-out single in the first, and then Kansas City tacked on another run in the third thanks to some hustle. Alex Gordon struck out swinging but raced to first base when Kazmir’s wild pitch went to the backstop. He reached third on Eric Hosmer’s single and scored on Perez’s twoout base knock. “When Scott left the game, we’re still in striking distance,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “We didn’t finish a couple of plays and it got away from us.” That happened in the sixth, when Perez and Cain opened the inning with back-to-back triples for a 3-1 lead, and David Lough added a pinch-hit single to pro-
vide the Royals with another run. Alcides Escobar reached base when shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera fielded his grounder and threw wide of first for an error, and then Bonifacio hit a dribbler toward Chisenhall at third that he mishandled for another error. The second in a span of three batters resulted in a 5-1 game. The Royals added a pair of runs in the seventh inning to put it away. “They put it on us tonight,” said the Indians’ Jason Giambi, who was 0 for 3 with a pair of strikeouts. “They played great baseball. They just out played us tonight.” Notes: RHP Yordano Ventura will make his big league debut for the Royals tonight in place of LHP Danny Duffy, who has inflammation in his surgically repaired elbow. Ventura was 5-4 with a 3.74 ERA at Triple-A Omaha. ... Indians RHP Justin Masterson (oblique strain) threw from 110 feet before the game. Manager Terry Francona said he’s hopeful Masterson will be available down the stretch.

MV JV squad moves to 9-1 MORAN — Marmaton Valley High’s junior varsity volleyball team continues to impress coach Jamie Stogdell. As reported Monday, the Wildcats zipped through their own tournament Saturday with a 4-0 record before falling in three games to Humboldt. “Their strong teamwork shows through their play on the court,” Stogdill said. “They are a fun bunch to watch. The team has a lot to be proud of.” Marmaton Valley downed Central Heights, 15-11, 15-5,
Southern Coffey County, 15-5, 15-7, NortheastArma, 15-6, 15-2, and Hartford, 15-6, 15-4. The ’Cats fell to Humboldt, 9-15, 15-5, 1511 to go to 9-1 overall. Team leaders: Kenzie Harrison, 28 points, two kills; Tessa Olson, 23 points, nine kills, one block; Tanna Lutz, 21 points, two kills; Shauna Knight, 20 points, four kills; Alex Thomas, seven points, three kills; Misty Storrer, one point, 12 kills; Magie Stevenson, one point, one kill; and Emily Plaschka, one point.

Big 12: Injuries, losses force adjustments Continued from B1
extra week to allow Knight to get healthy. Stoops said Monday that Knight’s status for the game at Notre Dame on Sept. 28 won’t be clarified until later this week. But it also appears that Bell will be given every opportunity to wrestle the job away from Knight regardless of health. “Blake’s the guy right now, but we’ll see how things go,” Stoops said. “That’s just something that we’ll see as time goes. But right now, there isn’t an issue.” Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy would rather have one bye week in the middle of the season rather than one this week and another in October. Still, the Cowboys (30) head into their first break on a roll after pounding Lamar 59-3. Gundy noted improvements in tackling, special teams coverage and overall fundamentals against the FCS Cardinals. Oklahoma State, ranked No. 11 in the nation, has two weeks to prepare for their Big 12 opener at West Virginia (2-1) on Sept. 28. The Mountaineers
don’t have it nearly so easy. They face regional rival Maryland in Baltimore on Saturday. “I think we’re about where we would expect to be. We obviously have a plan for our football team,” Gundy said. “It’s obviously a long-term plan. It’s to try to make us the best team we can in the end of November and December, and I feel like were close to being on track.” For TCU, the bye will give it additional time to bounce back from a 1-2 start. The Horned Frogs were 4 of 16 on thirddown conversions and picked up 13 penalties for 115 yards in a 20-10 loss to Texas Tech — which helped the Red Raiders snag the final spot in this week’s Top 25. TCU is allowing nearly 25 points a game, is ninth in the Big 12 with 190.7 yards passing per game and has just two TD passes this season. The Horned Frogs host SMU on Sept. 28. “I think it’s a combi-
nation of a lot of things. Obviously the coaches always get blamed. But we’ve had 2-3 days of talking about things we need to do. We need to tweak some things, change some things around. But we got to get some guys in position where we have people open that will catch the ball. The other night we could have run the ball a little bit more effectively,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said. Iowa State bizarre early season schedule includes a pair of byes following by back-to-back Thursday night games. The Cyclones can only hope their second bye in September will help them turn things around. Iowa State (0-2) remains the Big 12’s only winless team after losing to Iowa 27-21. The Cyclones needed a pair of touchdowns in the final five minutes to make the score seem more respectable. Iowa State’s offensive line has struggled to
open consistent holes for its backs, and quarterback Sam Richardson’s ability to run the ball was limited by an ankle injury. The Cyclones ran for 59 yards against the Hawkeyes, and Richardson was often under intense pressure from Iowa’s front four. Iowa State plays at Tulsa next Thursday in a rematch of last season’s Liberty Bowl. “We need to sustain and finish blocks,” Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads said. “We need to provide our quarterback longer pass protection.” Three of the six Big 12 teams that play this weekend are home favorites, as Kansas (1-1) hosts Louisiana Tech, No. 20 Baylor (2-0) plays Louisiana-Monroe and Texas Tech (3-0) faces Texas State on Saturday. West Virginia, Kansas State (2-1) and Texas (1-2) are the only Big 12 schools with so-called “big games” on Saturday, and the Longhorns and Wildcats get each other in Austin.

ing Norse jumped out in front quickly and held that advantage to win the second game, and looked to do the same to start the third Peters called timeout, which ended the slide. A Danielle Goodman kill and NEO error were part of a 13-8 Red Devil run to tie the game at 16-16. Allen’s hitters Sidney Keith, Huey, Sarah Webb and Goodman all had kills in the subsequent 6-2 run to put ACC on top for good.

Webb punched in the kill at game point. Munoz, designated as the team’s only setter in its new 5-1 lineup, spearheaded a six-point run to start the fourth and final game. Allen forced NEO to use its two allotted timeouts by the time the score reached 11-4. Allen led 17-8 when the Norse strung together six straight points, but it was too little, too late. The game ended on a bright note for both teams. Allen and NEO each earned points off a pair of extended rallies, filled with a number of spectacular saves, before Goodman smacked home the match winner. “All of our hitters did well. Danielle has been our most consistent hitter, and Sarah Webb had a couple of nice kills,” Peters said. “But Sidney Keith started things for us, Sidney Keith pushed us in the middle, and Sidney Keith finished it for us.” Keith led the way with 14 kills, followed by Goodman with 10, Huey with eight, Andonae Magdziarz with four, Munoz with three and Webb with two. Munoz racked up 34 assists with two aces. Huey had three aces. Allen returns home Wednesday to take on Hesston in a Region VI contest. After that, ACC hosts the Allen Invitational Friday and Saturday at Riverside Park before hosting Longview next Monday.

Costa Concordia back on dry land Retrieval efforts successful
By FRANCES D’EMILIO Associated Press
GIGLIO ISLAND, Italy (AP) — Engineers declared success today as the crippled Costa Concordia cruise ship was pulled completely upright during an unprecedented, 19-hour operation to wrench it from its side where it capsized last year off Tuscany. The remarkable maritime salvage project now allows for a renewed search for the two bodies that were never recovered from the 32 people killed in the shipwreck, and for the ship to eventually be towed away. The Concordia’s submerged side suffered significant damage during the 20 months it bore the weight of the massive ship on the jagged reef, and the daylong operation to right it stressed that flank as well. Exterior balconies were mangled and entire sections looked warped, though officials said the damage probably looked worse than it really was. The damage must be repaired to stabilize the ship so it can withstand the coming winter, when seas and winds will whip the luxury liner, which is to be towed and turned into scrap sometime in 2014. Shortly after 4 a.m., a foghorn boomed off Giglio Island and the head of Italy’s Civil Protection agency, Franco Gabrielli, announced that the ship had reached vertical and that the operation to rotate it — known as parbuckling — was complete. It was a dramatic operation that unfolded in real time as TV cameras recorded the final hours when the rotation accelerated, with gravity pulling the ship into place. “We completed the parbuckling operation a few minutes ago the way we thought it would happen and the way we hoped it would happen,” said Franco Porcellacchia, project manager for the Concordia’s owner, Costa Crociere SpA.
“A perfect operation, I must say,” with no environmental spill detected so far, he said. For Italy, it was a moment of pride after the horror and embarrassment of the Jan. 13, 2012, collision. The Concordia slammed into a reef off Giglio Island after it came too close to shore in an apparent stunt. Capt. Francesco Schettino earned the public’s contempt when he abandoned the ship before everyone was evacuated, and then refused coast guard orders to go back on board. He is now on trial. The Concordia drifted, listed and capsized just off the island’s port, killing 32 people. Two bodies were never recovered. Now that the ship is upright, a new attempt can be made to locate the bodies, though Gabrielli stressed that the wreckage must be secured again before divers can go in. “We hope that will happen in the next few days,” he said. Other recovery efforts were also possible now that the ship is upright: Officials can now go cabin to cabin to open the safes and return valuables to their rightful owners, officials said. Premier Enrico Letta phoned Gabriele to congratulate him. “I told him that all those who are working there are a great pride,” Letta tweeted. Nick Sloane, the South African chief salvage master, received a hero’s welcome as he came ashore from the barge that had served as the operation’s floating command room, embraced and cheered by residents. “Brilliant! Perfetto!” Sloane said, using some of the Italian he learned during a year on Giglio preparing for the operation. “It was a struggle, a bit of a roller coaster. But for the whole team it was fantastic.” The operation had been expected to take no more than 12 hours, but dragged on after an initial weather delay and emergency maintenance on the system of steel cables, pulleys and counterweights that were used to roll the 115,000-ton, half-submerged carcass of steel upright.
Dog accidentally shoots, wounds owner FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — North Texas police are investigating a canine caper that left a dog owner with a shotgun wound. The dog was ambling about its Fort Worth home Saturday night when it knocked over a shotgun leaning near the homeowner. The gun discharged when it fell to the ground, striking the 78-year-old woman in the left foot as she watched television.
She didn’t immediately seek medical attention and by the next morning her foot had swollen. She then sought treatment at a Fort Worth hospital. Police spokeswoman Sharron Neal tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the woman says the dog shouldn’t be blamed. The name and breed of the dog weren’t released. Neal says, “He has the right to remain silent.”

If feasible, exercise is always best option DEAR DR. ROACH:
My mother is 86 and still can go to the grocery store, but needs assistance. She walks very slowly with a cane. She won’t go with the assisted-living facility bus because she wants me to go with her and let her hold on to me while she gets out of the car and, using a cane, crosses the street from the parking lot to the store. Once she is in the store, using a grocery cart is enough to support her. But it takes hours for her to shop then she is worn out and complaining about hurting feet, legs, etc. I’ve
Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health
suggested the electric carts, but she won’t use them because she “does not know how to.” She could be taught. So, as her daughter, what is my prime responsibility? To help her shop so it takes her less time, even though she enjoys the outing? The complaints get worse and worse as time goes on. Is it better for her to walk or use the cart?
Should her doctor recommend using the cart? She does enjoy the outing and needs the cognitive stimulation. — N.L.B. ANSWER: I have mixed emotions about this. On the one hand, you want to make things easier for her; on the other, she clearly has her own mind about it. From a medical perspective, more exercise (not using the motorized cart) is probably better for her. At some point, your mother will decide when it’s too much. If the choice ever be-
comes using an electric cart for outings versus not going on outings, then I would recommend the cart. Until then, as long as she is safe (not in danger of falling), I would let her decide how she wants to go out and shop with you. As I often do, let me once again recommend regular exercise, supervised by the physical therapist her assisted-living facility is sure to have, as a way of improving her functioning and reducing her fall risk. And let me commend you for being there to help her.
