Committee to recommend Bideau successor By BOB JOHNSON

A convention to nominate a candidate to fill the Ninth District seat in the Kansas House of Representatives will occur the afternoon of Sept. 29 in Allen County Courthouse’s assembly room. Sixty precinct men and women, including 34 from Allen County, will decide the nominee, whose name then will be forwarded to Gov. Sam Brownback who will make the appointment. The seat opened when Ed Bideau, elected in 2012, died Sept. 6. Bideau also served in the House from 1985-88. He was an attorney in Chanute and had been Neosho County attorney. Several people have indicated interest in succeeding Bideau through appointSee HOUSE | Page A5

Stand Up! for what’s right By KAYLA BANZET

Teen pregnancy, physical violence, hate crimes and bullying were just a few of the topics covered through the musical, “Stand up! Change Teen Statistics” on Thursday. The show was on the Bowlus Fine Arts stage for the second year in a row. Cast members performed for local area middle school students from Iola, Yates Center, Marmaton Valley and Crest.

The musical integrates teen statistics into the show while delivering a powerful message. Actors performed scenes that included everything from the effects of drug use to the consequences of unprotected sex. Statistics are recited to the audience and each statistic relates to a scene. For example, one character was dealing with depression, noting suicide is the third leading cause of teen death. See STAND UP | Page A5

PTO carnival on tap The Jefferson Elementary PTO is gearing up for its largest fundraising event of the year, with hopes to make it bigger and better than ever. Lisa Dunne, Jefferson Parent Teacher Organization secretary, outlined what is in store for this year’s carnival on Friday. The group has planned the event since January, in efforts to coordinate between football schedules and any other school events in the community. “They (the PTO) actually have a pretty good system,” Dunne said. “But they still need a lot of volunteers.” This year’s carnival will be in Riverside Park’s Community Building from 5 to 8 p.m. Attractions will include inflatables, games, a drawing for prizes, Kiwanis train, face painting and much more. Dunne said the chicken and noodle dinners will be back again this year, always a crowd favorite. “Everybody loves the chicken and noodles,” she See CARNIVAL | Page A5

Monforts look ahead in Red Barn By BOB JOHNSON

At a time when many folks are thinking about easing into retirement, Dr. Darrell Monfort expanded his Red Barn veterinary clinic just northwest of Iola to accommodate a staff of eight, including two other veterinarians. At age 60, Monfort’s rationale is that when “you’re part of a community, I think you need to make an investment or there won’t be a community down the road.” His and wife Kathy’s investment was to build a new 4,400-square-foot clinic to serve owners of small animals, mainly dogs and cats, and an adjoining structure of the same size where horses

and cows may be quartered while being treated. He and his crew are working from the new quarters while Andy Beatty, and his crew, finish up construction. In addition to Monfort, Drs. Belinda Garten and Leann Flowers work from the clinic, meaning it will have a full-time vet’s coverage five days a week 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday’s 8 a.m. to noon. Also, Monfort, as has been the case for years, will respond to emergencies during off-hours. The two other docs find three-days-a-week shifts compatible. Garten lives south of Erie and her husband, Cody, is a U.S. Department of Agriculture veterinarian; Flowers lives in Chanute, where her husband, Lon, is a bank-

er. Other staff members are Diane LaGalle, office manager; Amanda Taylor, receptionist; Andi DePriest, technician; and Veronica Complido, who has worked as a technician for the Monforts 3½ years and is attending school in Independence to become a veterinary technician. “I’m the comptroller,” said Kathy; and computer tech, as well as girl Friday and whatever else needs done, said Monfort. Monfort said with the second two vets on board, he intended to spend more of his time with large animals, including weekly journeys to help with livestock sales in See RED BARN | Page A5

Re-inventing the season By BOB JOHNSON

In a space about the size of backyard garden, Calvin Parker raises vegetables he sells at Allen County Farmers Market, including this year about 2,000 pounds of tomatoes, 250 heads of cabbage and “I don’t know how much broccoli.” Parker discussed the market — he sells there weekly — and how he expanded the local growing season with a hoop house, one of the Obama administration’s ways of feeding the hungry through giving them the means to be producers. Parker gave assessment of

the market and his role to Iola Rotarians Thursday. Grants made available through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service led to about 2,500 of the 48-by30-foot structures going up throughout the nation, including on Parker’s spread just north of Humboldt Hill along old U.S. 169. “They have one in the White House garden, where vegetables are grown and used by the president’s chef,” Parker noted, as well as about 25 in the Kansas City area.

(Cooper) Dodge. Jane graduated from Manhattan High School and received her bachelor’s degree from Kansas State Agricultural College (now Kansas State University) in 1940. In 1942 she married George H. Works, who preceded her in death in 1980. Jane Works Jane and George, together with George’s brother, Jack (John R. Works), ran a successful farming operation west of Humboldt. In 1966, Jane and George were named Kansas Master Farm Homemaker and Kansas Master Farmer, respectively. Jane was an active member of the Humboldt community. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, the Hoe and Hope Garden Club, South Logan EHU, and was a 66-year member of Chapter AM of the P.E.O. Sisterhood. She had been an active member of the Allen County Farm Bureau, St. Joseph’s Altar Society, Humboldt Historical Society, Humboldt Music Club, Allen County Community College Endowment Association, several local bridge clubs, and was a 4-H leader for many years. She is survived by her five children and their spouses: Bob (Tami) Works, Lincoln, Neb., Ginny (Jeff) Petersen, Morgantown, W.

Martha Jane Konz, 90, better known all her life as Marty or Nana, passed away peacefully at Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center in Chanute on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013. Marty was born in Philadelphia, Penn., on Aug. 24, 1923, the daughter of Matthew and Caroline Haddy. She attended high school in Philadelphia. On Jan. 20, 1945, she married Donald Louis Konz. Marty and her husband traveled extensively throughout the United States while Don served as a career Navy man. They spent many wonderful years living in Florida,

Candy Miller Candra Kay (Smith) Miller, 60, passed from this earth on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013. Known as Candy, she was born Feb. 19, 1953, in Iola, the daughter of Altie Wayne and Lula Bell (Bair) Smith. At the age of 3, her parents moved to Springer, N.M., for employment on the Red River Ranch. The family later returned to Iola in 1968. Her Western upbringing fueled her love for horses, nature and adventure. On Aug. 16, 1980, she married Ronald W. Miller, Yates Center. Each brought a young child into the union from previous marriages, and together they raised Jonathan W. Miller, Topeka, and Jarred A. Henry, Oskaloosa. Occasionally, Jeremy A. Miller, Winfield, would join the family, and Candy mothered each of them as her own. While her children were growing, Candy was active in their development as a “home room” mother at school, Cub Scout leader, Vacation Bible School and Sunday school teacher, and by serving as a deacon, then later elder of the First Christian Church. As the wife of a volunteer firefighter, for 25 years she assisted with fundraising and community projects sponsored by the Yates Center Volunteer Fire Department. In 1990, she took employment as office manager of the Woodson County Road and Bridge Department, retiring in November 2012. Candy lived life. Together with Ron, she camped, hiked, toured, rode and explored much of the United States, beginning with their honeymoon in the Rocky Mountains. Throughout their marriage, they took in the skyline of New York and explored forts along the Hudson; drank tequila on a dinner yacht in San Francisco bay when the Giants won the pennant; and were among the crowd in Washington, D.C., for the Fourth of July fireworks celebration. They hiked and photographed the Durango and Silverton Railroad high-line above the Animus River Canyon, danced to Zydeco music in New Orleans, and explored Indian ruins in the San Yuan Mountains. They rode horses throughout the Black Hills, motorcycles throughout the U.S., coasters at Disney World, and bicycles down Pikes Peak; they showered by moonlight under a waterfall on the Chisholm Trail; white water-rafted mountain streams; and boated among the ’gators in the Louisiana swamps. Candy also broke two horses to ride, and achieved a black belt ranking in Tai Quan Do.  Candy is survived by her loving husband Ron, Yates Center; her sons, Jonathan and Jarred; stepson, Jeremy; five grandchildren; her brothers, Rodney and DeWayne; and her parents. She was preceded in death by a child from her first marriage, Amy Dawn Henry. Funeral services for Candy will be at 1:30 p.m. today at the United Methodist Church in Yates Center. No formal visitation is planned. Burial will follow in Highland Cemetery, Iola. In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorials to the Yates Center Volunteer Fire Department equipment fund.

Two accused in calculator thefts SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police officers caught

on to the operation when the manager of a Salt Lake City Rodeway Inn hotel called them Aug. 13 and reported finding boxes full of calculators in a room. Court documents say a duo stole the de-

vices from Wal-Mart stores in Tooele, Harrisville, Ogden and Carson City, Nev., by hiding them in the boxes of larger but cheaper items they bought. Authorities say police found at least 108 stolen calcula-


tors, which sell for about $130, in the hotel room. Officials estimate the pair stole about $15,000 in merchandise. Salt Lake City Detective Veronica Montoya said it appears the pair was selling the devices out of state.

Windsor Place…

Offering a lifestyle that’s flexible and full of activities. “Over the years, Windsor Place has taken care of me no matter what my needs might have been at the time. I would definitely recommend it to other people. I enjoy all the activities, but I really appreciate the garden we have outside. The beds are raised and there are sidewalks on all sides for easy access, even for residents like me who are in wheelchairs. The garden keeps me busy and gives us some really nice produce that we enjoy at mealtime.” – Robert Lane Robert Lane is one of Windsor Place’s best-known residents. Maybe that’s because he’s been utilizing our services for many years now, or maybe it’s because he’s one of the friendliest guys you’ll ever meet. At first, Robert just came to Windsor Place for short-term stays. At times, Robert wasn’t up to caring for himself at home. He would come to Windsor Place for a few weeks, get better and then return to his own home. A couple of years ago, Robert became a full-time resident at

Windsor Place. Now Robert may call Windsor Place home, but that doesn’t mean he misses out on activities with family and friends. He still makes regular outings to church and his favorite fishing holes. Unlike many nursing homes, Windsor Place offers a lifestyle that is fun and flexible.

Moran Day was top story in local paper Iolan Joe Lilly put us in touch with local history that’s meaningful in Moran today. Lilly dropped by a yellowed copy of The Moran Herald from Oct. 30, 1947, which contained a lead story entitled, “Moran Ready for Big Day.” It was an account of the run-up to the first Moran Day fall festival. A few excerpts: “Moran has been bustling with extra activity for the past two weeks in anticipation of the big ‘Moran Day’ next Tuesday, Nov. 4, and everything has been planned so that all who attend are assured of an enjoyable and profitable day. “WIBW (Radio) entertainers have been contracted to give a free concert in the early part of the evening and to play for the dance at night. Ezra Hawkins, well-known, old-time fiddler, will be master of ceremonies. Assisting him will be ... Virginia Lee, red-headed yodeler. “Local business and professional men have planned the day so that there will something doing after the beginning of the parade at 10 a.m. They are giving away several hundred dollars worth of merchandise ... (after) the football game between Moran and Bronson grades. The game is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. “The team-pulling contest will begin at noon, at which $120 will be the prize money, for eight placings. A matinee at the Minor Theatre ... will begin at 2 o’clock. “The parade will be led by the high school band. Elementary rural schools nearby and the Moran grade rooms will compete for prizes on floats ... Merchants will enter floats, various implements and new cars, but this will not be in competition against the schools and no prizes will be offered. “The Lam-Perkins new warehouse, which is opening that day, is being loaned for the dance in the evening. “A large cortege of Moran cars, accompanied by the high school band, are on a trip today boosting for Moran Day. They will visit 12 surrounding towns.” MORAN DAY was on a weekday for many years,

until finding a home on Saturday. Dee Ann Parsons, Chanute, remembers well. She was born the year before the festival started and grew up a couple of miles north of Moran, the daughter of Howard and Margery Donald. The Donald homeplace today is the site of the old Klein Tools plant. “I remember Moran Day being on Wednesdays,” she said, a fact lost on some of her childhood friends. “We’d get out of school to go.” As many children did, Dee Ann rode on floats, and has a cherished photo of herself on one in grade school. “It was a lot of fun,” she recalled. A COUPLE of news items caught my attention: The Moran High Wildcats defeated Mound City, 8-7, the previous Friday night. Jim Lincicome scored Moran’s touchdown on “an off-tackle plunge.” Moran’s margin of victory came when a Mound City player intercepted a pass in the end zone, and it was signaled a safety, good for two points. Later, it was noted the play should have resulted in a touchback, and no points for Moran, but officials decided it was too late to change the scoring. It was noted Allen County voters approved $275,000 in bonds, by a 1,794 to 782 count, to build a new county hospital in Iola. The biggest margin was in Iola, 992-223. Moran voters weren’t in favor, with 183 against, 88 for. You read the bond issue total correctly, $275,000. An advertisement in the paper announced the opening of a new Ford car agency in Moran, Wall Motors.

(AP) — A University of Kansas journalism professor was placed on indefinite administrative leave Friday for a tweet he wrote about the Navy Yard shootings which said, “blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters.” David W. Guth, an associate professor of journalism, made the comment on Twitter after Monday’s shootings in Washington, D.C., in which 13 people died, including the gunman. The tweet didn't attract much attention until Campus posted a story Thursday, sparking a social media backlash that's spilled over into some state lawmakers calling for his dismissal. The university also responded, as Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little issued a

statement Friday saying that “in order to prevent disruptions to the learning environment,” Guth was placed on indefinite administrative leave pending a review. His classes will be taught by other faculty members. Guth, who on Thursday told The Associated Press in a phone interview that his tweet “got a conversation going — that was exactly what I wanted to do,” agreed Friday that the university’s action was appropriate in light of email threats he and others at the university had received. “It is in the best interests and peace of mind of our students that I remove myself from the situation and let cooler heads prevail,” Guth wrote. “I know what I meant. Unfortunately, this is a topic that generates more heat than light.”

Pope thinks balance necessary By NICOLE WINFIELD AND RACHEL ZOLL

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis has warned that the Catholic Church’s moral structure might “fall like a house of cards” if it doesn’t balance its divisive rules about abortion, gays and contraception with the greater need to make the church a merciful, more welcoming place for all. Six months into his papacy, Francis set out his vision for the church and his priorities as pope in a remarkably lengthy and self-critical interview with La Civilta Cattolica, the Italian Jesuit magazine. It was published simultaneously Thursday in Jesuit journals in 16 countries, including America magazines in the U.S. In the 12,000-word article, Francis expands on his ground-breaking comments over the summer about gays and acknowledges some of his own faults. He sheds light on his favorite composers, artists, authors and films (Mozart, Caravaggio, Dostoevsky and Fellini’s “La Strada”) and says he prays even while at the dentist’s office. But his vision of what the church should be stands out, primarily because it contrasts so sharply with many of the priorities of his immediate predecessors, John Paul II and Benedict XVI. They were both intellectuals for whom doctrine was paramount, an orientation that guided the selection of a generation of bishops and cardinals around the globe. Francis said the dogmatic and the moral teachings of the church were not all equivalent. “The church’s pastoral ministry cannot be obsessed with the transmission of a disjointed multitude of doctrines to be imposed insistently,” Francis said. “We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.” Rather, he said, the Catholic Church must be like a “field hospital after battle,” healing the wounds of its faithful and going out to find those who have been hurt, excluded or have fallen away. “It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars!” Francis said. “You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else.” “The church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules,” he lamented. “The most important thing is the first proclamation: Jesus Christ has saved you. And the ministers of the church must be ministers of mercy above

all.” The admonition is likely to have sharp reverberations in the United States, where some bishops have already publicly voiced dismay that Francis hasn’t hammered home church teaching on abortion, contraception and homosexuality — areas of the culture wars where U.S. bishops often put themselves on the front lines. U.S. bishops were also behind Benedict’s crackdown on American nuns, who were accused of letting doctrine take a backseat to their social

different tone and signaled new priorities compared to Benedict and John Paul — priorities that have already been visible in his simple style, his outreach to the most marginalized and his insistence that priests be pastors, not bureaucrats. “Mercy has been a hallmark of his papacy from its earliest days,” said the Rev. James Martin, editor at large for America magazine. “The America interview shows a gentle pastor who looks upon people as individuals, not cat-

We have to find a new balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel. — Pope Francis

justice work caring for the poor — precisely the priority that Francis is endorsing. Just last week, Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, wrote in his diocesan newspaper that he was “a little bit disappointed” that Francis hadn’t addressed abortion since being elected. Francis acknowledged that he had been “reprimanded” for not speaking out on such issues. But he said he didn’t need to. “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible,” he said. “The teaching of the church, for that matter, is clear and I am a son of the church, but it is not necessary to talk about these issues all the time.” Francis, the first Jesuit to become pope, was interviewed by Civilta Cattolica’s editor, the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, over three days in August at the Vatican hotel where Francis chose to live rather than the papal apartments. The Vatican vets all content of the journal, and the pope approved the Italian version of the article. Nothing Francis said indicates any change in church teaching. But he has set a

egories.” Two months ago, Francis caused a sensation during a news conference when he was asked about gay priests. “Who am I to judge?” about the sexual orientation of priests, as long as they are searching for God and have good will, he responded. Francis noted in the latest interview that he had merely repeated church teaching (though he again neglected to repeat church teaching that says while homosexuals should be treated with dignity and respect, homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered.”) But he continued: “A person once asked me, in a provocative manner, if I approved of homosexuality. I replied with another question: ‘Tell me: When God looks at a gay person, does he endorse the existence of this person with love, or reject and condemn this person?’ “We must always consider the person. In life, God accompanies persons, and we must accompany them, starting from their situation. It is necessary to accompany them with mercy. When that happens, the Holy Spirit inspires the priest to say the right thing.”

Red Barn: New facility near completion Stand Up: Troupe tackles tough issues Continued from A1 Eureka.


a degree in veterinary medicine at Kansas State University and worked in North Dakota six years before deciding to return to the farm in 1982, when his parents, Roy and Betty Monfort, needed a hand. It also was a good place to raise their four children, Monfort said. He continued to farm after his father died in ’85, and his mother the following year. By 1990 the Monforts had a practice from their home and then opened a full-time clinic next door in 1995. With growth of the practice the building became so crowded, “We were walking on top of each other,” Monfort said. A survey of the structure came back with the assessment that remodeling and even enlarging would cost about as much as building new, but without as much space or the public access the new clinic has next to what’s known as Horville Road. Rather than build for the immediate future,

Staff members at the Red Barn Veterinary Clinic are, from left, Dr. Darrell Monfort, Kathy Monfort, Dr. Leann Flowers, Andi DePriest, Diane LaGalle, Amanda Taylor and Dr. Belinda Garten. REGISTER/BOB JOHNSON the Monforts looked ahead. In addition to ample space for today’s medical chores, the building includes sleeping quarters for interns, coming for a week or even a month. “We had three students from K-State here for a week in August,” Monfort said. “That’s important,” he added. “Students don’t get the handson training in school that they can get here,” working daily with animals brought to the clinic. “They need the

opportunity to get experience.” Surgical aspects of the clinic have been enhanced, including laser instruments and other electronic devices that help with pain relief. “We may be on the edge of civilization out in the country, but we’re also on the cutting edge of science and technology,” Monfort said. Clients come from a wide area, including some who lived here previously and now return — from Kansas City, Wichita and even

Denver — to have Monfort deal with medical needs of their pets. As for being community oriented, he added that every effort was made to purchase materials and services in construction of the clinic locally. “About 80 percent of what we needed for the upgrade came from within 30 to 35 miles,” he said. The clinic is on the southeast corner Monfort’s homeplace at 1540 1300 St. The phone number is 365-3954.

Garden: Parker sees year-round success Continued from A1 produce for a homeless shelter in Kansas City. The name hoop house is appropriate. The greenhouses are made of hoops covered with tough plastic — so tough that when a hailstorm damaged his home’s roof, it put only a couple of holes in the plastic, Parker said. Zippers at each end permit the enclosure to be opened, when weather is conducive and also to control inside temperature. The sides also may be rolled up. Cabbage, a cool-season crop started in his hoop house in late winter, Parker said, and tomato seedlings were growing in February, and will continue to grow and produce until frost. “The concept is to use solar energy” to grow produce when temperature otherwise would not permit it, Parker said. “The tomatoes weren’t ready as early as they

should have been because we didn’t have enough light,” cut off by dreary, rainy days, he recalled, but temperature wasn’t a problem. While some covering inside the hoop house is needed when sub-freezing temperatures occur overnight in early spring, that changes dramatically once the sun rises. On an otherwise cool day, temperatures inside the greenhouse can reach 60 degrees by mid-morning and 100 degrees in the afternoon. During hot weather, sun screens — another plastic covering — are used to keep the environment hospitable. Parker is an organic gardener, he became hooked in high school and college when he worked on a truck farm in the Wichita area. He continued to garden while spending the past 26 years — he retired in February — working as a chemist at Monarch Ce-

ment Co. in Humboldt. He fills growing beds with compost from Strickler Dairy, and uses watering devices that surround plants and also inject nutrients to prompt robust growth. His tomato plants topped out at about 8 feet tall, and still are blooming. Parker noted that controlling water in the enclosed environment kept his tomatoes from cracking and left them looking picture-perfect. PARKER fears that “we’ve lost a generation,” of younger people who aren’t picking up on home-growing of vegetables. “I read in an organic gardening magazine that 80 percent of producers are over 65 and only 20 percent are under 35,” he said. “We have young people come to the (farmers) market who don’t know an egg plant from a beet, or how to prepare veg-

etables” that don’t come in a container with directions. The market is designed to lean heavily on local produce, he added. “About 60 percent of our vendors bring produce, 20 percent baked goods, jellies and jams and 20 percent crafts,” he said. “We didn’t want it to be a flea market.” Chefs invited to give demonstrations are popular, with Iola firefighters drawing the largest crowd when they came to cook one evening — the market is open on Thursday evenings, mid-April to mid-October. “The firemen like to eat and they are good cooks,” he reported. Some specialties also attract attention. “We had a couple from Thailand, who were living in Fort Scott, who brought some interesting vegetables no one had seen,” he said. “And one vendor has homemade soap.”

Continued from A1 Another scene played out bullying; four out of five teens experience bullying. All scenes are based on true stories. The cast is made up of actors ages 17-23, with the younger cast making it easier for students to relate. Lindsay Stock has acted in the traveling show for three years. She said the show tries to stay current by updating the statistics. “We keep in mind the culture changes,” Stock said. “We try to know what’s hip and use new slang.” After the curtain call, actors do a question and answer session with students. Robbie Bersano also has been with the show

for three years and enjoys taking the time to speak with the audience. “The last part is my favorite,” Bersano said. “Seeing the kids’ reactions and how they’re interested in this has so much gratification.” Stock agrees. She said students send them messages and letters following the show. “The feedback after the show is amazing,” she said. “We hear from administrators that kids go and talk to their school counselors after the show.” Surveys from previous performances show that 33 percent of all audience members said they decided to seek help as a result of the program.

House: Ninth District seat open

Continued from A1 ment, including Iolans Judy Brigham and Bud Sifers, who faced off against Bideau in the August 2012 Republican primary. He was unopposed in the general election. At the nominating convention, those interested in being nominated will have opportunities to make cases for themselves before the precinct represen-

tatives. The appointee will serve until a full-term representative is elected in the November 2014 general election. Many of the precinct representatives who will decide the nomination were elected in 2012, although several have been appointed to fill vacancies created when no one sought election.

PTO: Carnival set Continued from A1 said. Pre-orders are available for-home dinners. Jefferson Elementary students are selling tickets for a drawing as well. All of proceeds from the ticket sales and carnival go to benefit students at Jefferson, Dunne said. In the past, the PTO has used its funds for new educational technology and other supplies for the classroom — anything to benefit students. “It’s getting harder and harder to get the money with funding going down,” she said.

The PTO encourages the purchase of “outside the box” education, such as games and activities that stimulate the mind for learning. Wristbands are available for purchase for the carnival from Jefferson Elementary for $7, or at the door the day of the event for $10; children under three are free. To preorder the chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes dinner, call 2284533 by Sept. 26. Meals may be picked up from the Riverside Park Community Building between 3:30 and 6 p.m. on Friday.

Paul Karr, 56, Iola, reported that tools were stolen from his room

while he was staying at Crossroads Motel. On Sunday, Virginia Rangel, 49, Iola, reported theft of items from her vehicle in the 300 block of South Buckeye Street.

Line damaged A telephone line owned by AT&T used by O’Reilly Auto Parts was pulled down by a passing semi owned by Old Dominion Freight Line behind the business. Apparently the line was hanging low and was unknowingly caught by the truck. Only the telephone line was damaged.

Burglary reported Jaime Henderson, 36, Iola, reported a burglary in the 100 block of South Third Street in Iola. A suspect has been identified.

Vehicles vandalized Kayla Banzet, 22, Lawrence, reported her vehicle was vandalized

A rough week for area football teams — B3

Tornado golden in win over Mustangs Iola suffers first loss of season, 40-10 By RICHARD LUKEN

Two things became evident to Iola High head coach Doug Kerr in the cool, autumn environs of Riverside Park’s football field Friday. 1. Coffeyville’s Field Kindley High is as good as advertised. 2. Iola High’s Mustangs, while on the short end of a 4010 loss, may be better than he hoped. The defeat drops Iola to 2-1 on the season, while Field Kindley — one of the most talented Class 4A teams in the state — stays spotless at 3-0. “I told the guys at halftime that it was little things that hurt us,” Kerr said. “We’d be in position to make a play, and we’d miss a block. But the guys played their tails off. I’m extremely proud of our effort.” The Golden Tornado took control with its potent passing attack that kept drives, particularly on fourth down. Field Kindley’s first drive

Rain washes out CC races PARSONS — Mother Nature got in the way of four local cross country teams Thursday, washing away the Parsons Invitational at Big Hill Country Club. The first races were just starting when a line of thunderstorms that skirted Allen County arrived and drenched competitors and organizers. “They haven’t announced a makeup date, but the ones they’re talking about probably won’t work for us,” Iola High head coach Marv Smith said. In addition to Mustangs and Fillies runners, teams from Humboldt, Marmaton Valley and Yates Center were scheduled to race in Parsons. Iols now sets its sights on hosting the annual Doc Stiles Invitational Tuesday at the Allen Community College grounds in Iola. All of the other area teams will attend as well. The first races begin at 3:40 p.m. A full slate of freshmen, junior varsity and varsity runners will compete, as well as middle-schoolers.

of the game was a perfect illustration. The Mustang defense forced a fourth-and-six, when quarterback Nathan Finley lofted a pass down the left sideline. Iola’s Cody Conner was in perfect position to bat the ball down, but was outleaped by the Golden Tornado’s talented receiver and defending state sprint champion, James Newton. LaDarrius Johnson plowed into the end zone three plays later, on fourth and goal at the Mustang 2. “The fourth downs were big,” Kerr said. “We made a good play, but they were just good enough to overcome it. They were able to capitalize on fourth down. We tried, but we’re just not there yet.” Johnson capped Coffeyville’s next drive with another scoring run, this one covering five yards before Iola reached the scoreboard. Starting from its own 30, Iola marched 56 yards on 14 plays. Although the drive fizzled at the Golden Tornado 14, it was close enough for Isaias Macias to punch a 31-yard field goal just inside the upright. An onside kick attempt misfired, and the Golden Tornado went 50 yards on four plays, ending with Johnson’s third score of the day. 21-3 Field Kindley.

Below, Iola’s Kaden Macha (12) fights for yards against the Golden Tornado defense. REGISTER/RICHARD LUKEN Iola made it to midfield on its next four possessions. Each

ended on unsuccessful fourthdown attempts. Field Kindley took full advantage. Destin Downing scored from 12 yards out to cap the Golden Tornado’s next drive. Then Finley hit Darren Deffebaugh on a 45-yard pass play on fourth-and-13 to blow the game open. By the time Downing scored again on a nine-yard run on the first play of the fourth quarter, the lead stood at 40-3, triggering a running clock. The Mustangs ended the evening with its most impressive drive of the night, one that left Kerr optimistic about the Mustangs’ future. Aided by a key 14-yard pass play from Tyler McIntosh to Trent Latta on fourth-and-long, the Mustangs marched 74 yards on 13 plays, ending with Jacob Rhoads’ three-yard touch-

Kerr noted Field Kindley’s defensive starters were still on the field at the end of the game. “To me, that’s a sign of respect,” he said. Rhoads led Iola with 66 yards on 20 rushes, while Macha had 28 yards on 10 carries. McIntosh was 7 of 14 passing for 35 yards. Latta had two receptions for 12 yards. Macha covered eight yards on his two catches. Rhoads also was a defensive stalwart, racking up 10 tackles, five solo. Conner had six and Shane Walden five. Iola played without the services of tailback John Whitworth and Keenan Badders because of injury. See MUSTANGS | Page B3

Cubs christen new stadium with 41-20 romp By STEVEN SCHWARZ

HUMBOLDT — Even the nerves of playing a home opener on a brand new field couldn’t shake the Cubs’ composure Friday night; they downed the Neodesha Bluestreaks, 41-20. “Our kids were pretty excited during this past week at practice,” Head Coach K.B. Criss said. “I was afraid they were going to be amped up.” He attributed some firsthalf errors to nerves. They fumbled twice in the first half. But, Criss said the players were able to “settle down” and get in a rhythm before the night was over. The action started close and remained that way for the majority of the game. Neodesha dropped a fumble in the opening sequence, and the Cubs

the ground themselves — the Bluestreaks made them pay for it. Neodesha put six on the board after a failed field goal attempt. “We were sloppy on the ball at first,” Criss said. In the second quarter, the Cubs were able to put two more in the endzone on the Bluestreaks — both on rushing touchdowns from Caleb Vanatta. The half ended with the home team on top 20-6. The Bluestreaks’ Hayden Dierks broke a long run to the endzone to start the second half. A failed two-point conversion put Neodesha within 8, 20-12. “Our team was pretty resilient tonight, I’m proud of our defense,” Criss said. Immediately following the Blue Streak score, Alex MurSee CUBS | Page B4

Iola tennis players show net gains in Chanute action CHANUTE — Iola High’s Fillies were matched up with some tough competition on the tennis courts Thursday. Megan Smith led the way, capturing an 8-1 victory over Kelci Atkinson of Columbus in no. 1 singles. Smith fell to Katy Short of Pittsburg, 8-1, and Alexis Thuston of Chanute, 8-2.

“Megan had some nice shots, moving her opponent,” Iola head coach Jenn Bycroft said. “The Pittsburg girl is an extremely tough player. I was happy Megan got the win against Columbus.” Katie Lieurance dealt with illness through her No. 2 singles day. She had to exit her match against Katie Phale

of Pittsburg, trailing, 2-0. She forfeited a match against Abby Liudehl of Chanute before recovering enough to play her last match. She did so with authority, thumping Lexi Murdock of Columbus, 8-1. Alexis Hobbs and Bobbie Sinclair dropped a pair of No. 1 doubles matches by identi-

cal scores of 8-2 to Long and Baden of Pittsburg and Barrick and Angleton of Fort Scott. The duo turned things around in their finale, defeating Zahm and Peterson of Columbus, 8-1. Shelby Reno and Allyson Hobbs had an exasperating See FILLIES | Page B3

Pony squads sweep Grizzlies ALTAMONT — A late interception by Iola Middle School’s Isaac Vink set up a tie-breaking scoring drive for the Ponies. Quarterback Evan Sigg blasted his way in on a two-yard touchdown with 3:55 remaining to break the 12-12 deadlock in Iola’s 18-12 victory over Labette County. “It was a very good effort against a very good football team,” Pony head coach Marty Taylor said. The victory capped a perfect day on the gridiron for IMS. Tayton Driskel’s 248 rushing yards led the IMS seventh-graders to a 28-12 victory. THE eighth-grade win was keyed by Iola’s

rushing — 196 yards — and containing the Labette County passing game. Cale Barnhart led Iola with 78 yards, followed by Sigg’s 57 yards and two touchdowns, including a one-yard run late in the second quarter to give Iola a 12-6 lead. Labette County scored first before Sigg connected with Isaac Vink on a 28-yard touchdown pass with 1:28 left in the first quarter to tie the game at 6-6. Sigg was 3 of 10 passing for 53 yards. Ethan Holloway had two receptions for 25 yards. Vink’s sole catch was good for the touchdown. Matt Komma rushed for 48 yards. Vink had two carries for 13 yards. “Cale, Evan and Matt

ran hard tonight,” Taylor said. “Every yard was tough. Our defensive backs, Vink, Barnhart, Dalton Ryherd, Ethan Tavarez, Reece Kimble and Bryce Andres did a great job of taking away the passing game from a very good quarterback.” THE seventh-grade offense was clicking from the outset. Kane Rogers connected with Matt Karr on a seven-yard scoring pass midway through the first quarter to get things started. Driskel followed with touchdown runs of 60 and 48 yards as Iola led 22-12 at halftime. Defenses controlled the tempo through much of the second half until Driskel broke

through on a 32-yard touchdown run with 1:48 left in the game. Driskel wound up with three touchdowns. Nic Zimmerman added 49 yards on eight carries. Rogers had three rushes for 20 yard, while completing 1 of 2 passes for seven yards, and his touchdown strike to Karr. “These kids gave a very good effort tonight against a physical football team,” Taylor said. “Tayton was fantastic,” he continued. “He kept his head up and made good cuts and ran hard all night. I thought Tim Komma did a nice job from his defensive end spot.” The Pony teams will host Royster Middle School of Chanute Thursday.

IMS volleyball squad earns road splits PITTSBURG — Iola Middle School’s volleyball teams picked up road splits Thursday. The IMS eighth-graders fell to Pittsburg, 2511, 25-19 in A team action. The B team went three sets before prevailing, 26-24, 18-25, 1520. The seventh-grade A team won 25-18, 24-26, 15-8, while the B team fell 25-14, 25-20. Both Iola coaches said their teams showed improvement. In the eighth-grade A team contest, Pittsburg scored 12 points in a row to take control of the first set. “Most of these points were scored off their strong serves,” eighthgrade coach Terri Car-

lin said. “We had a bad passing night.” Pittsburg jumped to an early nine-point lead in the second set before Iola responded. “We played much better in the second set,” Carlin said. “We came back tougher and passed the ball much better. This allowed us to be able to set the ball and get some hits to score some points.” Scout Rush had three ace serves and three kills, followed by Colbi Riley with three ace serves and two kills. Katie Bauer also had two kills, Sophie Whitney chipped in with two aces and an assist. Madison Carlin had three assists. Carlin said the B team has begun to work

MVJH rolls to victory MORAN — Marmaton Valley Junior High’s volleyball teams stayed on the winning track Thursday, sweeping Jayhawk-Linn. The Wildcat A team came from behind to win its opening game, 25-22, and then broke open a close second game, scoring 12 in a row to win 25-10. With the score at 1310, the Wildcats got a point and sent Paige Becker to the service line. She closed the game with 11 straight points. “I have to commend the team for holding the serve,” Wildcat head coach Brenda Mills said. “Paige did a nice job, and she had a lot of help from her teammates.” Becker and Megan Ensminger each had 11 points, while Trinitee Gutierrez and Shayla Brooks had four apiece. “Megan did a nice

job setting up Shayla and MaKayla (Brooks), and Trinitee and Paige have a nice combo working,” Mills said. The Wildcats emerged victorious in the B team contest, 2520, 25-5. Shelby Yoho led the way with 19 points. Shayli Woods scored seven. Marmaton Valley’s C team won, 25-11, 2513, behind Patricia Outlan’s 15 Points, Sarah Spillman’s 11 and Lana Myers’ eight.

well together. “Chloe Wilson had a great game with several great passes and hits,” Carlin said. “Sophie Whitney and Olivia Taylor continue to cover much of the court. Macayla Bycroft did a great job making some saves at the net. Emily Mollins had one of her best games in making some great plays.”

THE seventh-grade A team victory was keyed by the team’s improved serving, head coach Stacy Sprague said. Iola served at an 80 percent clip. Jayden Jackson led the way with 11-for-12 serving with an ace. Piper Moore racked up four saves while serving

at 87 percent. Mia Aronson was 4-for-4 on serves. Madisyn Hollow was 9 of 11. “Macie Martin came in with two big serves,” Sprague said. “Our biggest challenge is a rotation in which we lost several points with poor passing and communication.” Martin was a perfect 8-for-8 in the B team defeat, Sprague said. “She changed the pace of the first game. The girls are improving with their passing.” Thursday’s games started a whirlwind stretch for IMS. The teams will be at Burlington today for a tournament before matches Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Royals win, 2-1 By DAVE SKRETTA The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Neftali Feliz walked Alcides Escobar on four pitches with the bases loaded and two outs in the eighth inning Friday night, giving the Kansas City Royals a 2-1 victory over the Texas Rangers in the opener of an important threegame series between teams in the playoff race. Texas dropped a halfgame behind the Indians for the second AL wildcard spot with the loss. Cleveland beat the Houston Astros 2-1 in rainshortened game. The Royals were three games behind Tampa Bay. The leading Rays played Baltimore. The Rangers and Royals scored matching runs in the second in-

ning before two stingy pitching staffs started throwing up zeros. The Royals finally broke through when Lorenzo Cain and Mike Moustakas hit consecutive two-out singles off the Rangers’ Jason Frasor (4-3) in the eighth. Pinch-hitter David Lough drew a walk on a full-count pitch to load the bases, and Rangers manager Ron Washington brought in Feliz. He promptly walked Escobar, a .238 hitter, on four pitches as a crowd of 30,000 roared. It was just the 19th walk that Escobar had earned in more than 600 plate appearances this season. Luke Hochevar (5-2) earned the win in relief of Ervin Santana, who allowed one run on five hits in 7 1-3 innings. Greg Holland worked the ninth for his 44th save.

Crest Mistakes costly to Yates Center in shootout comes up short PLEASANTON — Crest High’s volleyball team was more composed and intense Friday than it had been earlier this season, head coach Abigail Hermreck said. The Lady Lancers weren’t able to reach the victory column, but still battled to the end against Bronaugh (Mo.) and Pleasanton before falling in both matches. Crest fell to Bronaugh, 25-17, 25-15, and the host Blu-Jays, 25-18, 26-24. “Passing looked much better,” Hermreck said. Senior Emily Frank led the Lady Lancers with eight ace serves, while freshman Miranda Golden had six solo blocks. “It was exciting to see the team get fired up and rally together,” Hermreck said. “I was proud of the team for how they focused. “We are getting so close to that first win,” she continued. “We are starting to play like we practice. The girls were more relaxed and composed, and there was an intensity that we were only getting in small amounts before.” Crest’s junior varsity picked up its first win of the season, defeating Pleasanton. Freshman Laurel Godderz was a force at the net for the JV players, Hermreck said. Crest is at the Humboldt Invitational today and will host Chetopa and AltoonaMidway Tuesday.

WAVERLY — Yates Center High showed off plenty of offensive fireworks, but several costly penalties cut the Wildcats short of a victory. The Wildcats had two touchdowns and another long play called back because of penalty, then lost a fumble deep in

host Waverly High territory with three minutes left in a 54-38 setback The loss drops Yates Center to 1-2. “We just shot ourselves in the foot way too many times,” Wildcat head coach Ben Wiehn said. “The worst thing we can do is not learn from this.”

Kaleb DeNoon had a sterling effort on offense and defense. He rushed 135 yards and tour touchdowns, threw for 180 more yards with another score and led Yates Center with 17 tackles. Austin McNett rushed for 57 yards and a score and had three receptions covering 45 yards.

COLONY — Brent Smith is certain his young Crest High squad will learn the steps necessary to be successful on the field, but for now his team is taking its lumps. On Friday, Uniontown left town with a 46-0 win in tow. The game ended with about a minute left in the third quarter after the Eagles’ final score pushed the margin to 46, ending the game via Kansas eight-man mercy rule. Clayton Miller

The Lancers had 61 yards of total offense. “We have several younger players who are learning what it takes to be successful at this level,” Smith said

Johnson rushed for 134 yards to lead the Golden Tornado. Finley completed 8 of 14 passes for 162 yards.

competition, coming close to three victories, but coming up short in each, losing 8-6 to Sullivan and Lundberg of Pittsburg, Markham and Hughes of Chanute and Neal and Burroughs of Coffeyville. “It’s so hard being this much in the match and losing it.” Bycroft said. “They had some nice shots and showed lots of hustle. They’re starting to communicate better, but we have to start out strong from the very first point all the way to the end. It’s encouraging to see the improvements, though.”

row hit Bryce Isaac for a 10-yard touchdown reception — 27-12 Cubs with 9:45 remaining. But, the Bluestreaks weren’t done yet. Dierks broke free from the Cubs’ 29-yard line and cruised down the field for a 71-yard touchdown, and the extra point was good as well. But, the Cubs defense controlled the rest of the game. Vanatta scored on a 51yard touchdown run, putting the Cubs up 34-20 with just over 7 minutes left in the game. A defensive stand, coupled with another Humboldt rushing touchdown from Vanatta — his fourth of the game — sealed the win. “It was a special night for our entire community and school district, I am glad we came away with the win for our players and our fans,” Criss said As a team, the Cubs racked up 260 passing yards and 162 rushing yards for a total of 422 total yards. Caleb Vanatta led with 105 yards on 17 carries. Hunter Murrow led in receptions with 87 yards on three catches, followed by Vanatta with 69 yards on three receptions. Defensively, the Cubs held the Bluestreaks to just 216 yards total offense. Grayson Pearish had nine unassisted tackles, followed by Zach Osborn with seven and Jacob Carpenter with six. The Cubs’ win puts them at 3-0 for the season, they travel to Oswego next week. Neodesha 6-0-0-14—20 Humboldt 7-13-0-21—41 Humboldt- Carpenter 20-yard pass from A.

YC golfers compete EUREKA — Yates Center High’s Marlana Buchanan and Becky Wendland finished two strokes and two places apart Wednesday. Both were at a golf tournament in Eureka. Buchanan shot a 59 to earn 23rd place. Wendland shot a 61, for 25th. “It was a bit of a struggle,” said Wildcat golf coach Kevin Barnes,



who was unable to attend. Yates Center’s former coach, Linda Old, attended in his stead. Barnes said Wendland was hampered by an ankle injury, “but she managed to hobble through the last three holes.”

The Iola Register

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



Joey Stumbles

A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves

Daytona Beach News-Journal/ JIM TILLER

Shouldn’t this scene be part of the Chase for the Championship? What change would you make to the Chase schedule? GODSPEAK: The Chase should have every type of track, so move the Watkins Glen or Sonoma date into the playoffs. KEN’S CALL: Daytona has the season’s first race. Move its July race to September and give Daytona the first Chase race, too.

Odds that NASCAR would listen to any of your advice? GODSPEAK: I would probably have more luck in the lottery. Have I ever won the lottery? No, but I get a quick-pick ticket every stinking week. KEN’S CALL: We’ll have Middle East peace before Brian France takes my advice.

ONLINE EXTRAS news-journalonline. com/nascar Do you have questions or comments about NASCAR This Week? Contact Godwin Kelly at godwin.kelly@news-jrnl. com or Ken Willis at ken.willis@

WHAT’S ON TAP? SPRINT CUP: Sylvania 300 SITE: Loudon, N.H. SCHEDULE: Friday, practice (Fox Sports 1, noon), qualifying (Fox Sports 1, 3:30 p.m.). Saturday, practice (Fox Sports 2, 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.). Sunday, race (ESPN, coverage begins at 1 p.m.; green flag at 2:16 p.m.) TRACK: New Hampshire Motor Speedway (1.058-mile oval) RACE DISTANCE: 300 laps, 317.4 miles

Joey Logano, driver of the No. 22 Penske Racing Ford, is the only Chase rookie in this season’s expanded field of contenders. As (bad) luck would have it, he was the first driver fighting for the 2013 title to exit the race at Chicagoland. Reason out: blown engine. “We got to keep our heads up and keep the momentum that we have and not let this take us down,” he said. “With only 10 races, you really can’t have these issues, but we are strong enough to come back from it.” In the past five years, only Jimmie Johnson has roared back from such a horrible Chase start to win the title (2010).


Michael Waltrip Racing was fined heavily for team shenanigans at Richmond. All three of its drivers lost 50 championship points, and that points loss pulled Martin Truex from the Chase playoffs. But as NASCAR cleaned up its Richmond mess, Clint Bowyer refused to admit he spun his No. 15 Waltrip Racing Toyota with seven laps to go in order to assist Truex in claiming a Chase berth. Bowyer apologized to Ryan Newman, who was directly affected by the spin, and said he was sorry for what happened, but apparently decided to take the Fifth on his complicity in the scheme to assist his teammate. Not only is there strong video and audio evidence, but eyewitness Dale Earnhardt Jr. stepped forward to say that Bowyer was purposely slowing in order to make the damning spin harmless to his racing machine. “You asked about a line being crossed and obviously MWR stepped over that line,” Bowyer said. “We got penalized and then — like I said, I’ve given this interview on national television.” Bowyer visited ESPN’s SportsCenter studio three days after the Richmond race and looked extremely uncomfortable, like he was sitting in a briar patch, during a tough line of questioning from former driver Ricky Craven. They had a back-and-forth moment. Back at Chicagoland Speedway, Bowyer played dodgeball with the media as his team prepared for the Chase. “We’ve had a great season, and as far as that’s concerned (Richmond), we know really — we know where the line

is,” he said. And no, that “line” of which Bowyer speaks doesn’t involve an admission of guilt.


Such outpourings of emotion aren’t an everyday occurrence for Matt.

LOST IN THE SAUCE With the Richmond hullabaloo, some major racing news was trampled, such as Ryan Newman being named as the driver of the No. 31 Richard Childress Racing Chevy in 2014. Newman will replace departing veteran Jeff Burton. Did you see that AJ Allmendinger will be in the No. 47 Toyota next season? And Furniture Row Racing will remain aligned with Childress Racing for the foreseeable future. AP/NAM Y. HUH

Is there an app for good racing luck?

NASCAR is due for several days of ho-hum heading into New Hampshire, and the stars just may be aligned. Last week was one of the worst in the past decade for NASCAR, which found itself dealing with credibility issues stemming from the previous week at Richmond. But if the sight of Matt Kenseth — the walking, talking definition of calm — hoisting the trophy at Chicagoland didn’t signal a return to peace and quiet, there may be no hope.

Final thoughts on NASCAR’s damage control? The Boys in Competition should’ve seen the potential for shenanigans long before they happened at Richmond. But they either dropped the ball or put too much faith in the teams — um, let’s go with “dropped the ball.” But after the fact, NASCAR couldn’t win. In the end, however, they probably made the best of a bad situation.

Will it happen again? Human nature never fails to overcome our better intentions and stated values. So yes, it’ll happen again, but it will be better hidden. Much better hidden. Ken Willis has been covering NASCAR for The Daytona Beach News-Journal for 27 years. Reach him at



GODWIN’S NEW HAMPSHIRE PICKS Godwin Kelly is the Daytona Beach News-Journal’s motorsports editor and has covered NASCAR for 30 years. Reach him at godwin.

Any chance of calm this week?

Winner: Ryan Newman Rest of the top five: Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Clint Bowyer Dark horse: Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Disappointment: Joey Logano First one out: Denny Hamlin Don’t be surprised if: Several Chase drivers continue struggling at this track.


Kyle Busch vs. Kevin Harvick: Harvick gave Matt Kenseth a race-winning push past Busch on the final restart, prompting Busch to say “I just hate it.” Godwin Kelly gives his take: “Busch has never won a Chase race, and the frustration is growing. Kenseth is Busch’s teammate, so this is a shoulder- shrug situation.”
