“Exciting times ahead”

Iola City Council approves EMS merger


“Let’s lay this thing to rest,” said Steve French of what will be the beginning of combined EMS services between Iola and Allen County crews. In a unanimous vote, the Iola City Council approved Councilman French’s proposal at their meeting Monday night. All that remains is a signature from county commissioners, expected this morning. If they follow through, the City of Iola will take over all EMS services for Allen County starting at midnight Dec. 31. After years of discussion

from both entities, countless meetings and mediated gatherings, all it took was a 30-minute executive session regarding attorney-client privilege before a motion to accept the proposal was made. “Exciting times ahead,” Mayor Joel Wicoff said as he signed the agreement. The merger comes after the Allen County EMS and Iola EMS entities split in 2008. SOME KEY POINTS IN THE PROPOSAL:

— The county will pay the city $750,000 per year for the services, any excess will go back to the county to be placed in an “EMS Capital Outlay Fund” to be used

for the county’s billing agent. — The services will be labeled Allen County Emergency Medical Services and will cover the entire county. — Allen County will be in charge of all billing for ambulance services. — Iola will also operate the rescue vehicles and HAZMAT vehicle. — Both parties “anticipate that the service should have a staff of approximately 33 fulltime employees.” — The city will have the staff required to maintain a type-I ambulance service at all times. — Employees will be encourSee MERGER | Page A6

Humboldt eyes senior complex

Humboldt is eager to court Neighborhood Senior Living about locating a housing complex in its fair city. The Dallas-based business is pulling up stakes from Iola. It was to have had housing for seniors, including meals and all other living expenses for a monthly charge, and a second building to accommodate people with dementia problems. Developers for the senior complex ran into problems with Iola when would-be neighbors complained the facility would change the nature of the neighborhood. The last straw came when a contract between the company and Andy Armato, who owns the 3.8 acres at 1002 N. Kentucky, was let to expire earlier this month. Then, Armato negotiated a contract with another party, said Jack Franklin, the listing agent at Allen County Realty. Franklin said he thought all terms within the new agreement had been accepted by both parties, but “it hasn’t closed yet.”


That outcome apparently has Neighborhood Senior Living, owned by Jack West, Dallas, on the outside looking in, with no announced plans to pursue anything further in Iola. MEANWHILE, after learning Neighborhood Senior Living no longer had a site under contract in Iola, Larry Tucker, Humboldt city administrator, and Humboldt Mayor Nobby Davis called Scott Holder, the company’s construction manager, to lure the company on south. As of Monday afternoon they had had no response. “I called him and sent a text, but haven’t heard back,” Davis said of Holder. The Register also has been unable to get an on-the-record response from Holder, or any response from West. Tucker said Humboldt was “certainly interested,” in discussing a project there. He mentioned two possible sites. One is the old Pinecrest Nursing Home in the southeast part of town, which has been closed for several months. Owned by a comSee COMPLEX | Page A6

Learning together works best By KAYLA BANZET

With the help from teachers, Angie Linn, USD 257 curriculum director, explained to board members the benefits of the Cooperative Learning program at their board meeting Monday night. A visit in 2010 from experts with the Kansas Learning Network (KLN), convinced Linn of the merits of the new program which stresses a cooperative atmosphere in learning. Linn said when group goals and individual accountability are used together, the effects on achievement are positive. Mary Ann Regehr, a Jefferson Elementary teacher, said cooperative learning has changed not only her teaching style but also how her students learn. “I love seeing how they approach each other,” she said. “Cooperative learning is not the old-time learning. In cooperative learning everyone has a job.”

Regehr said her students work on projects together. She said no two days are the same in her classroom. “The kids come to the classroom and are excited,” she said. “They don’t even realize they’re learning.” Positive effects from the program include higher self-esteem, better intergroup relations, acceptance of academically handicapped students, better attitudes toward school, and the ability to work cooperatively. Cooperative Learning is being utilized by teachers of all subject areas in all grade levels K-12. Annette Rexwinkle, Iola Middle School teacher, said her students enjoy using the learning style as well. “It makes it simpler for the student,” she said. “I’ve really enjoyed using if for the last three years.”

Farmers seeding winter wheat

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A new government report says Kansas farmers are harvesting corn, seeding wheat and preparing for fall harvest. The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that winter wheat planting in Kansas is 13 percent complete, about even with the 15 percent average for this time of year. The agency also reported that 16 percent of the Kansas corn crop has now been harvested.

That is well behind the 62 percent that had been cut by the same time last year.

Shawn G. Maxwell, 22, Pleasanton, was arrested Thursday evening following his second run-in with an Allen County deputy within 12 hours. Maxwell’s involvement with officers began at 8 o’clock that morning when he and a friend, Jimmy Houk, 30, Fort Scott, were contacted by Deputy Daren Kellerman, after he received a report of a suspicious vehicle, with two occupants, about a mile southwest of Mildred. Houk subsequently was arrested for interfering with law enforcement, while Maxwell was issued a citation for driving while his driver’s license was suspended. Maxwell was released, Kellerman said, after explaining that he had young children at home and badly needed to go to work. “I even gave him a bottle of water and let him use my cell phone to call for a ride,” Kellerman said. Later in the day Kellerman was about to end his shift at Allen County Courthouse by completing

Dog adoptions through the Emporia Animal Shelter have been on hold for some time as officials investigate an illness that has sickened or killed a number of dogs since late winter. Now, with a cause likely determined, dog intake has been halted at the facility as well. City and county officials have brought in the Capital Area Animal Rescue Team to set up a temporary intake center at the Lyon County Fairgrounds with distemper now confirmed at the shelter, resulting in the deaths of over 60 dogs since February. Executive Director Julie Castaneda says CAART is committed to this project for at least three weeks. “You’re basically putting together a new structure and process so the dogs aren’t exposed to what’s happening at the other location,” she said. “We bring cages, bowls, all the resources, paper towels and paperwork,” she added. “As emergency management, we have resources we bought with Homeland Security money for times like this,” Emergency Management Coordinator Rick Frevert said.

Animal Shelter manager Peggy Derrick says this is extremely tough to swallow. “We euthanized several dogs the last couple weeks and over the past few days we had to euthanize some more, not because they were sick but it was pretty much precaution. Things that had come in the same time frame had somehow become exposed or in the same area maybe as some who had shown symptoms,” she told KVOE News. Derrick says the remaining dogs at the Animal Shelter are currently in good health. Police Chief Scott Cronk says this is a natural step with dogs still needing a place to stay. “We still have dogs running at large and being brought in, so we had to set up a temporary place to shelter the animals where they wouldn’t be exposed to what’s happening at the Animal Shelter,” Cronk said. Local veterinarian Dr. Floyd Dorsey says issues first came to light in February and March after some stray dogs from northwest Lyon County were brought to the shelter. Several dogs became sick with kennel cough symptoms before worsening.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Pope Francis to bishops: Let’s get back to basics By BOB KEELER Newsday (MCT)

There’s an old saying in the Catholic Church, partly cynical, but mostly true, that the bishops will dance to whatever music is currently playing in the Vatican. Now Pope Francis is saying and doing things that are testing that axiom — and the bishops’ musical tastes. Some of them are dancing gleefully to the expansive new beat. Some are standing glumly in the corner, feeling no urge to get on the dance floor, but humming the old tunes they like best. I suspect some — like Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput, who grumbled publicly about Francis — are regularly reading his words and spitting out their morning coffee. Like his predecessor, Benedict XVI, this pope is not going to be an easy pope for all bishops to love — but for very different reasons. From the beginning, Pope Francis has talked repeatedly about the church’s need to be less self-referential, less focused on its own internal rules and rigidities, more ready to be out in the world, standing in solidarity with the poor — in keeping with the constant refrain of concern for the poor that echoes throughout the Bible. Benedict’s vision for the church was a smaller, more ortho-

dox, more obedient church. But Francis sees a church expanding its vision and its reach — “the home of all,” as he put it, “not a small chapel.” The most recent words from Pope Francis — likely to unsettle bishops appointed by Benedict XVI and John Paul II — have created immense buzz. A friend sent me an email soon after the story moved, with this subject line: “OMG — he really said this!” Yes, he did.

Gun control efforts slip by the wayside Mass killings in the United States haven’t reached the point where we’ve become desensitized to tragic loss of life, but it seems that efforts to place any controls on firearms sales, or even the size of magazines that feed them, are bound to fail. President Obama’s campaign after the slaughter of grade school kids in Newtown, Conn., went nowhere in the Senate. In Colorado, two legislators were recalled, with their sin being they were portrayed as antigun. The Navy yard killings passed with hardly a whimper in Washington about making guns less available. Apparently that is as it will be for the foreseeable future. Americans are keen on freedom, and many envision any effort to place anything that smacks of gun control on the books as an affront to their Second Amendment rights. Rationale is that the least controls eventually will lead to confiscation of all weapons, right down to Junior’s B-B gun. That’s pretty far-fetched, but, as it always seems to be, perspective has a much stronger presence than reality. The culture that has made

guns so much of an issue may be traced to long ago, when the West was being settled, first by fur trappers and traders and then pioneers who fanned out in wagon trains stretching from one horizon to the other. Hunting and ownership of guns to accomplish it, from rabbits and squirrels to large mammals, is considered a birthright by many — there’s not a thing wrong with that. The unfortunate outcome is that firearm technology has outstripped necessity, and many good, honest, wellmeaning folks are so fascinated that they want to own what’s on the cutting edge. That includes a good many weapons designed only for human killing fields — wartime scenarios. The second phase of that is that those who stand to gain the most, the manufacturers, have their tentacles intertwined throughout the nation and traffic in misinformation about what even modest controls might do to curb horrible events such as the recent massacres. Will that change? Maybe not, but that shouldn’t preclude efforts to make people safer. — Bob Johnson

The first Jesuit pope said a lot in a long interview with Jesuit publications. Take this: “The church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules.” And this: “We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that.” To some bishops, this is a discordant note. To me, it’s

joyous music. OUR AMERICAN bishops have taken important progressive positions on everything from immigration to the dignity of the worker. But no matter how right their positions on these issues, the bishops don’t get heard. Why? Because the only issues that they choose to utter at full volume are the ones Francis mentioned. Also, the pope seems to grasp what the bishops

don’t: With new stories still popping up about clerical sexual abuse, this is a really bad time for the church to be turning up the volume on issues involving sexuality, where it has lost most of its credibility. The pope isn’t saying, let’s change what we teach. He’s saying, let’s stop harping on this set of hot-button political issues, where we’re getting nowhere anyway, and let’s talk about the poor, about peace, about the all-encompassing mercy and love of God. If the bishops listen, and the church begins to speak more loudly on the social justice issues that concern Francis, we may not only gain back some of our lost credibility but also have an increasing impact in the deliberations of this nation and the world. Clearly, this is a pivot moment for the church. Like St. Francis of Assisi, whose name he took, this pope is trying to repair the church by calling it back to the words of Jesus, who cared a lot more about the poor than about rigid rules and fancy robes. This is a profoundly significant change of tune. Let’s see who decides to dance. ——— About the writer: Bob Keeler is a former religion reporter and editorial writer for Newsday.

Budget talks go off track — again It must be terribly frustrating to work for the Congressional Budget Office. Every year around this time, the group issues a report about just how grim the nation’s long-term financial health is. A few lawmakers wring their hands and say they will get serious about fixing the problem, but then they don’t. We, as a nation, rush toward a debt-induced disaster if no one heeds the warning. The nonpartisan budget office issued its new forecast this month. It offered one glimmer of hope. Short-term, the federal budget is in better shape today than in recent years. Thank a slowly recovering economy, sequestration spending cuts and a few tax changes. Annual deficits that topped $1 trillion in recent years have shrunk to their smallest level since 2008. They will continue to decline until about 2018. Then, if nothing changes, everything starts going haywire again. Budget deficits will increase each year, driving up the national debt. By the budget office’s calculations, the federal debt will equal the entire gross domestic product of the nation by 2038 and will increase from there. That would approach levels not seen since the years after World War II. The Congressional Budget Office calls that “ultimately unsustainable,” which is the polite way to say America is doomed unless it makes fundamental changes. Budget officials and economists have sounded this alarm for decades, at least back to the Reagan years. Entitlement programs, particularly health care and Social Security, will demand an increasing share of total spending. Interest on the debt, too, will become a greater expense, weighing ever more heavily on future generations. Washington just isn’t listening. Lawmakers, activists and lobbyists get twisted up over discretionary spending programs that the budget

group forecasts will remain basically flat over the next 25 years. The Farm Bill, for all its other problems, stalled over the minor (in the grand scheme of things) expense of food stamps. Even now, partisans are bickering over what should be a routine increase to the debt ceiling so that the government can spend money Congress already authorized. Default and a government shutdown loom while Republicans insist on fighting over the Affordable Care Act again, a battle they cannot win given that President Barack Obama holds a veto pen and the Senate has a Democratic majority. Members of both parties

worry more about short-term political gains than long-term solvency. Those and other hurdles prevent the serious conversation about revenue and entitlement reform that the nation needs. The longer we wait, the deeper the hole becomes. The current national debt is $16.7 trillion. That’s about $53,000 for every man, woman and child in America. The Congressional Budget Office once again has given America a peek at its future. If it comes to pass, in 2038, Americans will hold few fond memories for those who were warned that fiscal disaster was coming and did nothing. — The Kansas City Star

It is the duty of an agriculture extension agent to serve as the chairman of the County Committee of Conservation Awards, and part of that requirement is to insure that the public is aware of the recognition given to our producers every year and the opportunity to nominate award candidates. Kansas Bankers Association Award winners last year from Bourbon County were David and Gayle Goodbody for soil conservation, Bob and Joyce Love for water quality, and Jack Jackson for grassland. The Neosho County winner for soil conservation was R & A Kepley Farms while Rick Rutter received the wildlife award. James Smart was the soil conservation winner for Allen County. The purpose of this program is to stimulate a greater interest in the conservation of the agricultural resources of Kansas by giving recognition to those farmers and landowners who have made outstanding progress in the establishment of soil and water conservation. Included in the awards program are a soil conservation, wildlife and windbreak award, in addition to three relatively new areas of energy conservation, water quality and water conservation. Points to be considered in selecting soil conservation award winners are:

use of land according to its capabilities, completeness of conservation plan, balance of farm enterprise, quality of conservation work completed and maintenance of practices, and special practices unique to the farming operations. The windbreak award considers windbreaks that provide protection from damaging winds for residential (or other structure) areas, livestock, or fields. Windbreaks should be a minimum of three years old; with points of selection including windbreak design, management, location, density, and length. Basis of selection for the energy conservation award is the efficiency of energy used for buildings, equipment, and operations, production and utilization of energy from renewable sources, and cogeneration and co-

utilization of energy. The water quality award is based on quality of water quality improvement and protection work, adoption of management practices to reduce sediment, nutrient and bacterial contamination of surface water, such as buffers, nutrient management plans, grazing systems, and livestock watering systems. For the water conservation award, points to be considered are improved irrigation management, matching cropping systems with irrigation capacities, adoption of appropriate tillage systems to reduce soil water evaporation and improve soil water storage, and improvement to on-farm water supplies. If you know of someone who would be deserving of one of these awards, stop by the Extension office. Awards may be given to individuals, landowner-tenants, family partnerships, or any other combination. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Family time essential for kids

Many years of research by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University has consistently found that children with hands-on parents are far less likely to smoke, drink or use drugs. As children age, it is important to build trust with them and to keep the lines of communication open so that if at any point they begin to feel increased pressure to experiment with smoking, drinking and using drugs they can feel more comfortable talking about it. The research has shown: — Adolescence is the critical period for the initiation of risky substance use and its consequences. — Nine out of 10 Americans who meet the medical criteria for addiction started smoking, drinking, or using other drugs before age 18. — Addiction is a disease that in most cases begins in adolescence, so preventing or delaying teens from using alcohol, tobacco or other drugs for as long as possible is crucial to their health and safety. — One in four Americans who began using any addictive substance before age 18 are addicted, compared to one in 25 Americans who started using at age 21 or older. Everyday activities like having family dinner together, helping children with homework, tucking little ones into bed, or attending after school activities have a lasting effect on kids. Each of these moments offers an opportunity to connect, share and really listen to what’s on their mind.

Anne Ludlum

Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences

Communication is a primary step in helping to keep youth from substance abuse. Family mealtime is a good place to start, reviewing events of the day or just finding out what is happening in a child’s life. The conversations that go hand-in-hand with dinner will help you learn more about your children’s lives and better understand the challenges they face. No one has more power to prevent kids from abusing substances than parents. If busy schedules are making it hard for your family to have regular family meals, take a “time out” to consider all the benefits of gathering around the dinner table. Just as time for the doctor or hair appointments is scheduled on the family calendar, time for family meals may be scheduled too. Making family dinners a priority is about more than just sharing a meal. Other ways to help children, grandchildren, or other children in your life stay substance free include: — Set a good example. — Know your child’s whereabouts, activities and friends. — Set fair rules and hold your child to them. — Surround your child with positive role models. — Learn the signs and symptoms of teen substance abuse and conditions that increase risk.

Learning: Classes see positive impact Continued from A1 Fourth grade teacher Linda Garrett read the positive feedback from her students. Garrett said changing learning styles is a good thing. “We need to be willing to change and do what’s best for our kids,” Garrett said. Lincoln Elementary Principal Larry Hart updated the board on classroom changes. Lincoln has successfully moved classrooms for students who have disabilities. A classroom that was originally upstairs in the

building was moved to the first floor. This will be an issue later when they have more students with disabilities, he said. In other news:

— Site members for USD 257 were approved. — The building trades house, 405 McGuire Dr., north of Miller Road, has one inspection left from the FHA. — A part-time secretarial position for IMS was approved. — Shay Hlavaty and Elyssa Jackson were hired as SAFE BASE instructors.

Merger: City will take over services Continued from A1 aged to live within Allen County, and within 15 minutes of Iola; they will not be required to do so, however, and this policy will be “grandfathered in.” — At least one type-I ambulance will be stationed in Iola, Humboldt and Moran 24 hours per day. — The agreement will remain in effect until Dec. 31, 2019 and year-to-year thereafter. Parties must give six months notice for termination after Dec. 31, 2019. An updated version of the full EMS agreement is on our website, at www. IN OTHER NEWS:

— The City of Iola will work to construct a sidewalk along State Street from Cofachique Park to Walmart’s entrance. It is estimated that material cost for the project will be approximately $65,000 and will be paid from sales taxes. — Council members gave approval to the Community Involvement Task Force to move forward with efforts to plan a disc golf course. — A motion was passed to allow street blockage for Farm-City Days events. — Council members

agreed to change wording in the personnel policy regarding deferred compensation, to match current practices. The city will match $500 per year if city employees contribute $10 per pay period to a deferred savings fund. — The city will enter into an interim energy management agreement with Westar Energy between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013. The city is leaving the Kansas Power Pool Sept. 30 and entering into an agreement with Westar on Jan. 1, 2014. — Council members approved a 15-year mortgage agreement with River Valley Homes II — the 29 remaining lots in the Cedarbrook addition — totaling $196,625 to be paid at the end of the 15 years. — Construction of the Missouri-Pacific Trail will continue along Benton Street. City crews will install a 5-foot sidewalk along the street for pedestrians and will paint symbols on the roadway for bicycle traffic. — Following a 13 percent decrease in premiums for health insurance through Blue Cross Blue Shield, the council voted to retain additional funds until 2014 to await any changes that may come with the signed EMS merger.

That parcel is under control of the previous senior housing developer but will revert to the city at the end of the year if nothing occurs with it, Tucker said. The area has been rezoned multi-family, without objection from neighbors, Tucker said, and also has all utilities nearby. “We’d absolutely like to work with them,” Tucker reiterated.

Broncos rout Raiders — B3

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Late theatrics highlight KC win over Seattle SEATTLE (AP) — Greg Holland got the save. Alex Gordon deserved one, too. Gordon threw out a runner at the plate in extra innings and scored on Salvador Perez’s two-out double in the 12th to lift the Kansas City Royals over the Seattle Mariners 6-5 on Monday night. Kansas City moved within three games of idle Cleveland for the second AL wild card with six remaining — all on the road. Texas is a game behind the Indians. Gordon saved the Royals in the 10th inning, when his one-hop throw to Perez from left field cut down Kyle Seager for an inning-ending double play. “Alex Gordon’s golden arm, and great tag play by Salvy,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. Holland walked the first two batters in the 12th, then retired three straight to end it. “I’d like to tell you we did that on purpose,” he said, “but we didn’t. This team has been resilient all year and people are starting to see that now. It’s one great defensive play after another. It’s clutch hits. When we’re not hitting early, the pitching keeps us in games.”

Gordon drew a leadoff walk from Lucas Luetge (13) in the top of the 12th and Emilio Bonifacio sacrificed. Eric Hosmer popped out before Johnny Giavotella walked. Perez, who had three hits, sent the next pitch into the left-field corner. Gordon scored and Giavotella was thrown out at the plate. Wade Davis (8-11) pitched two hitless innings for the win. Holland earned his 45th save in 48 chances to tie Dan Quisenberry (1983) and Jeff Montgomery (1993) for the club record. Holland said that achievement “maybe will sink in later sitting at home during the offseason. But right now I’m just thinking of helping us win.” Franklin Gutierrez and Michael Saunders hit consecutive homers in the eighth for Seattle off Luke Hochevar to tie it at 5. “They did a good job of picking me up tonight,” Hochevar said. “You want to be a little smoother. We could have done without the backto-back home runs, but at this point of year winning is the bottom line.” See ROYALS | Page B2

Humboldt, Wildcat JV teams compete HUMBOLDT — Humboldt High took home three wins against Marmaton Valley High in junior varsity volleyball action Monday. The visiting Wildcats won two in a series of matches between the squads. Humboldt prevailed in the series, 21-25, 25-15, 20-25, 2516, 15-13.

Leading the way for Marmaton Valley’s JV were Kenzie Harrison, 13 points and a kill; Tessa Olson, 12 points, five kills and two blocks; Misty Storrer, 11 points and four kills; Shauna Knight, 10 points and three kills; Tanna Lutz, 10 points; and Alex Thomas, four points.

Red Devils in seventh heaven By RICHARD LUKEN

Nobody said keeping a winning streak alive would be easy. Fresh off a 6-0 week, Allen Community College’s volleyball team looked to be well on its way to win number seven Monday, rolling to convincing wins in the first two sets against visiting Longview. But a letdown threatened to let the Lakers back into the proceedings. The Red Devils steadied their ship after a third-set loss, and ended the match with another show of firepower from its front-line hitters. Allen’s 25-14, 25-22, 16-25, 25-

14 win over Longview marks the seventh straight win for the Red Devils, the longest in head coach Jessica Peters’ coaching career. “It was a nice win, except for that third set,” Peters said. “Even though we won the first two sets, we didn’t have the same spark. Our flame was flickering, but it was more a slow burn.” Peters thought fatigue may have played a role in Monday’s affairs. The Red Devils were playing their seventh match in as many days, including four over the weekend at the Allen Invitational. “Now that we’ve reached a peak, it’s up to the girls to realize that each game here on

out is going to be tougher and more important to us for the season,” she said. That’s even more important with the upcoming schedule, starting Wednesday at 18thranked Kansas City, Kan. Allen doesn’t play at home again until Oct. 16. ALLEN STARTED OFF on the right foot, effectively neutralizing Longview’s hitters with stellar defense and some deftly placed kill shots. The Red Devils opened the first set with a 12-3 run to take control in the opener, then used a six-point run late in the second to pull away, although See ALLEN | Page B3

PARSONS — Iola Middle School’s eighth-grade A team let a pair of big leads slip away, but still had enough gas at the end to win. The volleyball team’s 25-23, 25-22 win over Parsons illustrated the team’s perseverance, head coach Terri Carlin said. “I was proud of the girls for working hard and not quitting and getting the win,” Carlin said. “We were up 10 or 11 points in the first set and kept making some silly mistakes. We just let them back in it. The same things happened in the second set. We kept fighting through both sets for the win. The girls never quit.” In other action, the eighth-grade B team dropped a 25-17, 25-11 decision. The seventh-grade Ateam also was successful, See IMS | Page B2

YC golfers hit the links Griner basket CHANUTE — Perhaps “struggling� and “terrible� is the way to go on the golf course nowadays. Yates Center High’s Marlana Buchanan shot a career-best 53 Monday at a tournament in Chanute, good enough to take 17th overall. “Marlana told me she was struggling and doing terrible every time I talked with her,� Yates Center coach Kevin Barnes said. “Yet she shot a career low. I think she was saying that because she sees areas she can improve on.� Two other golfers competed for the Wildcats. MaKayla Jones shot a 74 to finish in 61st. Braeden Burright shot a 76 to tie for 62nd. “This was Braeden’s

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Brittney Griner hit a turnaround jumper with 4.9 seconds left, lifting the Phoenix Mercury to a 78-77 victory over the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday night in the deciding Game 3 of their WNBA playoff series. Candice Dupree scored 22 points, Dewanna Bonner added 19, and Diana Taurasi had 18 points and 10 assists while improving to 6-0 in career elimination games with the Mercury. Phoenix advanced to the Western Conference finals against top-seeded Minnesota. Game 1 is Thursday. Kristi Toliver led the Sparks with 22 points. WNBA MVP Candace

Parker added 18 points, and Nneka Ogwumike had 13 points and 10 rebounds. After Parker gave the Sparks just their second lead of the fourth on a layup with 7 seconds to go, Griner responded with the winning basket for the Mercury. Parker missed a fling from the wing after getting trapped in the right corner as time expired, dashing her hopes of adding her first WNBA championship to her collection of NCAA titles and Olympic gold medals. Both teams shot poorly in the fourth quarter, when they each went more than 2 minutes without scoring.

Sophie Whitney led the B-team with six aces. Emily Mollins and Emilee Luedke added a kill each. Destiny Howard had one ace serve. “Sophie Whitney continues to be a consistent server and leader on the floor,� Carlin said. Coach Debby Russell credited Kylee Hunter with some good passes, praising her movement on the court and ability to get to the ball.

Manning, Broncos blast overmatched Raiders By EDDIE PELLS The Associated Press

DENVER (AP) — Peyton Manning slapped his hands together five, six, seven times and barked out the signals. A few seconds later, Wes Welker was all alone, cradling the quarterback’s latest touchdown pass. All part of another impeccably crafted victory for Manning and the Denver Broncos, who rolled over the Oakland Raiders 37-21 Monday night. Denver’s 127 points lead the league and are 31 more than second-place Green Bay. It was Denver’s 14th straight regular-season win, tying the franchise record set in 1998 when the Broncos won their second Super Bowl. Manning went 32 for 37 for 374 yards and put his name in the record books a few more times while outwitting the overmatched Raiders (12). “You see flashes of good things,� Manning said. “When we’re executing and not making mistakes, we can go the

the Lakers didn’t go quietly. Longview rattled off five straight points to pull within 24-22 before Danielle Goodman tipped a kill over the net. By then, Longview had seized momentum. The Lakers opened the third set on a 10-3 run. Allen pulled to within 16-12 but no closer. “Sometimes it’s hard to get yourself up for a team you’ve played already,� Peters said, recalling Allen defeated Longview in four sets in a tournament on Sept. 7. A group of familiar faces helped right the ship. Hitters Sidney Keith, Goodman and Lizzy Huey took turns hammering down kills as Allen broke open a 7-7 deadlock with a 6-2 run and forcing a Longview timeout. Keith’s kill pushed the lead to 17-10, then Andonae Magdziarz’s kill stopped a two-point Longview streak. Huey ended the match with a pair of kills. Goodman led the way with 14 kills, 15 points and a solo block. Keith had 11 kills, 12.5 points,

he keeps up this pace, Manning will throw 64. “Any inch of mistake that he sees, he’s going to put the ball there and find that hole,� Raiders cornerback Mike Jenkins said. The Raiders offense made one big play before the game got out of hand. Terrelle Pryor (19 for 28 for 281 yards), who left the game late with a concussion, hit Denarius Moore in the middle of the field and Broncos defensive backs Duke Ihenacho and Dominique RodgersCromartie whiffed on the tackle. Moore went 73 yards to cut Oakland’s deficit to 17-7 in the second quarter. All of which simply gave Manning the ball back more quickly. On the first play of the next drive, he hit Decker, who spun away from his defender for a 61-yard gain. Three plays later, the Broncos were up 17 again after Manning found Thomas on an out route for a 13-yard score. The Broncos defense, now halfway through Von Miller’s suspension and playing again without injured Champ Bailey (foot), allowed only 9 yards on the ground to Darren McFadden, who came into the game leading the league with 223 yards from scrimmage. McFadden did, however, throw a touchdown — a 16-yard connection to Marcel Reece on a halfback option — and get a late rushing score.

“He’s great. There’s no other way to cut it up or slice it.� As much as the numbers, it was Manning’s deciphering of the Oakland defense that made jaws drop in this one. His first touchdown, a 2-yard pass to Eric Decker (eight catches, 133 yards), came after a subtle play-action fake that froze the defense and left Decker uncovered in the back of the end zone. Manning’s targets for the next two touchdowns — Welker and Thomas — didn’t have defenders within three steps of them when they caught the passes. Wide open. A sure sign that Manning had diagnosed the

defense he was looking at well before the snap and knew exactly where he wanted to go with the ball. “You see what he can do. I don’t even know too many people who can do that in Madden,� running back Ronnie Hillman said, referring to the popular video game. “It’s pretty cool to have a quarterback like that.� OK, so the evening wasn’t perfect. There were the five incompletions, though two of them were flat-out drops and another two hit receivers in the hands, but would have been difficult catches. The Broncos (30) settled for three field goals and had to punt once. Rookie Montee Ball lost another fumble. Denver came a field goal short of reaching 40 points for the third straight game. And Manning’s prediction that Chris Clark would be a seamless replacement for injured Ryan Clady as his blindside protector didn’t exactly pan out. Lamarr Houston beat Denver’s new starting left tackle badly in the third quarter for a sack and strip that halted a drive that had reached the Raiders 13. But Denver was ahead 30-7 at that point. And, really, any complaints about Denver’s offense seem like quibbling given what’s gone on so far this season. The record for touchdown passes in a season is 50, set by Brady in 2007. If

The Iola Register

Buying a lemon? See your mechanic Hi Guys! — My name is Emma, and I am 20 years old. I am about to purchase my first car. I have chosen a 1975 Mercedes 240D non-turbo, four-speed manual. It’s going to cost me $1,500 from a dealer. I found his ad on Craigslist. My dad and I went to see the car, (about two and a half hours away from my home) yesterday. Overall, this car is a gem — nicely preserved, and cherry red. Even the air conditioning blows cold! However, when we took the car for a ride, at about 30 mph and above it made a really sharp grinding sound from the back. All signs point to the differential. The noise is emanating from its location, and when we got out and looked under the car, the thing looked icky: thick grease had oozed its way out and hardened on the exterior. It presumably was dry inside. Not sure, but we think it was a slow leak. So, exercising caution, we did not purchase the car then and there, but rather told the dealer that we would come back later in the week after he had the differential checked out. My dad thinks that it will be OK if it gets some heavy oil put in it.

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi My question is: Should the whole differential be replaced? And if so, how immediately should I do that? If the dealer gets the oil changed in the differential, would it be OK to drive for a while (weeks? months?)? And if I do have to get the thing replaced, is it really worth it? Will it end up costing more than I am going to pay for the car? Please help. Thanks! — Emma RAY: In my vast experience, Emma, once the differential is damaged to the point that it’s making noise, just putting fresh oil in it — or fresh oil, bananas and sawdust — is not enough to reverse the damage. So, if you’re sure that the noise is coming from the differential, I think you should go on the assumption that the differential is cooked. TOM: That means you’ll need to replace it in... how long is your drive home? Two and a half hours? You might make it. RAY: Actually, it could last months or more. But I

wouldn’t count on it. TOM: What you really need to do is get an independent opinion — not from this dealer, who is trying to sell the car, but from someone who is working for YOU. So take it (or have the dealer take it) to a shop you trust (you can use if you don’t know a trusted shop near where the car is being sold), and have your own guy go over the car, bumper to bumper. RAY: If all that’s wrong with the car is the differential, you’ll want to know what that’s going to cost to fix or replace. Then you can try to negotiate with the seller. So if he wants $1,500 for the car, and the differential is going to cost $1,000, you can offer him $500 and see if he’ll take it. TOM: Or ask him to replace the differential himself, since he’s a car dealer and presumably has mechanics working for him. And then you’ll give him $1,500. RAY: But if your own mechanic discovers that the transmission is also limping along, the exhaust is about to fall off, or you need brakes, calipers and control arms, you might decide to walk away

and look for something a little less classic. Like a 2003 Corolla. TOM: No, I can tell that Emma is a person of very refined tastes. She homed in on this old Mercedes because it’s unusual... and because, unlike the ’03 Corollas of the world, this car has character. It has soul. It makes her smile every time she sees it. RAY: And she’ll mostly see it sitting in the driveway, waiting for a tow truck. TOM: No, I disagree. This will be a great adventure, Emma. I applaud you, because I, too, have similarly refined and misunderstood taste. RAY: Taste? His exwives all called it a curse. So, if you are similarly cursed, Emma, you should think about steps you can take now to make your life a little less difficult. Like, win the lottery. Or try to marry an old Mercedes mechanic. TOM: Or just get your cars checked out carefully before you buy them, Emma, to minimize the expensive surprises and “I told you so’s” from your uncultured brother. Good luck, kid. And enjoy whatever car you end up with!

Amid controversy, professor takes sabbatical By ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — An embattled University of Kansas professor began a planned sabbatical early after the fallout from his tweet about the Navy Yard shootings in Washington. The university said Friday that David W. Guth, an associate professor of journalism, had been placed on indefinite administrative leave. After last week’s shootings that killed 13, including the gunman, Guth tweeted: “The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you.” Guth told The Associated Press last week the post “got a conversation going — that was exactly what I wanted to do.” But it has also raised legal questions about how far employers can go in holding workers accountable for what they say on social media. In February, Guth was awarded a sabbatical to start in spring 2014 to research how rural community journalists survive in the 21st century, according


to faculty meeting minutes posted online. In an email Saturday, he

told the AP that the safety of students is the top priority and he agreed to take
