My Three Sons

HHS reunion reunites family By BOB JOHNSON

HUMBOLDT — Lois Squire lives in a modest home she built about 50 years ago on an idyllic little spread at the east edge of Woodson County. On the backside is a deck, where she can look out over a plush, neatly mown lawn that blends into a pasture where deer and turkeys often venture. A pastoral scene, and one Lois, 90, takes in frequently. Lately, she has been distracted, and this week slipped by slower than usual. She has been eager to attend tonight’s biennial “old grads” reunion at Humboldt High School. For the first time, she will be joined at the 6:30 banquet in the community fieldhouse by her three sons, George, Middleton, Idaho, class of 1961, Curtis, Joplin, class of 1966, and Jean, Westfield, Ind., class of 1971. George and Jean are chiropractors; Curtis is a school administrator. Lois graduated from HHS in 1941, and hasn’t missed an See REUNION | Page A7

Project 17: networking for a better life in SEK By BOB JOHNSON

Heather Morgan, director of Project 17 and its only paid employee, gave Rotarians from Iola, Humboldt and Chanute an overview Thursday of its recent accomplishments. “We want to transform southeast Kansas to compete with metropolitan areas,” Morgan said. Project 17 was begun in 2011 with the goal to improve the quality of life and economic opportunities of those who live, work and play in the 17 counties of southeast Kansas. Networking — bringing together for

the common good leaders in business, education and government — is the means being employed. A commonality in the region is high unemployment, poorer health than elsewhere in the state and declining population. Franklin and Miami counties swim a bit against those currents, with their residents having advantage of being within commuting distance of goodpaying jobs in Lawrence and Johnson County. Morgan mentioned statistics that bore out need for improvement. See PROJECT 17 | Page A7

Daughter channels author’s characters Henry, a 12-year-old slave in Kansas, is snatched by abolitionist John Brown after Brown kills his master. The sackcloth smock he is wearing causes him to be mistaken for a girl by Brown and his men, an impression which Henry does not correct and uses to his advantage. Nicknamed Little Onion by the abolitionist, Onion accompanies Brown around the country as he drums up support for his campaign to liberate slaves and moves toward the disaster at Harper’s Ferry. Onion’s perspective gives a unique insider’s view of Brown and his “army.” It’s been hotly debated for a century and a half whether Brown was a noble crusader or an insane fanatic (or both). His portrayal in this novel falls into the latter camp. TONY HILLERMAN fans, rejoice! Hillerman died five years ago, and hadn’t pub-

Of course, that’s not necessarily a good thing (many who have taken up a dead author’s characters have done a dreadful job), but this book is drawing universal praise. For those not familiar with Hillerman’s books, they are set on a Navajo reservation where Leaphorn and Chee are with the tribal police.

“WREATHS OF Glory” by Johnny D. Boggs is set along the Missouri-Kansas border during the Civil War. Two Missouri teenagers join Quantrill’s band. Sent to spy on Lawrence before his raid, the two begin to entertain doubts about their cause as they encounter in real life the demonized abolitionists and freedmen. Some will remember Boggs, a New Mexico resident, from when he spoke at our Family Reading Festival here. PEOPLE AROUND the world were horrified by the shooting of Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year old girl shot in the head by the Taliban for daring to go to school and speaking for the importance of education for girls. And they have been inspired by her recovery and increased activism in the

cause. Now Malala tells her own story in “I am Malala.” A. SCOTT BERG has written a major new biography of Woodrow Wilson titled simply “Wilson.” Wilson expected to concentrate mainly on domestic affairs as president, in particular his progressive reforms. However, he was overtaken by events and is best known for his leadership in and after World War I. Wilson is the only president to have had an academic career. In October 1910, he had never held a political office and was still president of Princeton University. Just 25 months later, he was elected president of the United States, the first Southerner (although living in New Jersey) to be elected to the office since the Civil War. Berg won both a National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize for earlier biographies, and this one is a gem as well.

Plants in outbreak will remain open By DAVID PIERSON, DIANA MARCUM and TIFFANY HSU Los Angeles Times

For years, Foster Farms wanted consumers to know its poultry was farm fresh, all natural and, most important, safe to eat. But the ongoing salmonella outbreak linked to three of its central California processing plants is threatening to tarnish the company’s image and raising hard questions about gaps in the nation’s food safety laws. Considered among the industry’s leading producers with state-ofthe-art facilities, Foster Farms is an example of how salmonella has become an increasingly potent threat to consumer safety. “This is not your grandmother’s salmonella anymore,” said Caroline Smith DeWaal, food safety director for the Center for Science in the Public Interest. “It’s a new salmonella, much more potent, and modified with the use of antibiotics on the farm.” At least 278 people reportedly have been sickened in 18 states since

March by a strain of Salmonella Heidelberg that has shown signs of resistance to antibiotics. That may explain why rates of hospitalization are nearly double that of typical salmonella outbreaks. That prompted the U.S. Department of Agriculture this week to threaten Foster Farms with closure of its two plants in Fresno and another in Livingston, Calif., where the company is headquartered. That threat was lifted Thursday after Foster Farms met a deadline to show plans to improve conditions in the three problem plants. The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service did not mandate a recall of chicken from those facilities. It deemed the company’s poultry safe to eat as long as it’s cooked to a minimum of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Still, Foster Farms faces a challenge restoring faith in its products. In a letter to the company that is now circulating on the Internet, the USDA admonished the nation’s 10th-largest poultry producer for unsanitary conditions at those plants and cited a dozen instances this

year in which fecal material was found on carcasses. “Your establishment has failed to demonstrate that it has adequate controls in place to address salmonella in your poultry products,” the letter said. Kroger Co., the nation’s largest grocery chain, has already recalled chicken from the three Foster Farms facilities tied to the outbreak. The chicken in question can be identified in supermarkets with USDA marks of inspection P6137, P6137A or P7632. Officials at Foster Farms have not granted interviews, but in a written statement released late Wednesday, President and Chief Executive Ron Foster apologized for the illnesses and pledged to take steps to ensure the safety of its chicken.

$45 billion chicken industry. “We have a 75-year history for excellence because of our commitment to continuous advancement in food safety,” Foster said in his prepared statement. “We are putting every resource we have toward the continued safety of our fresh chicken.” Some who track the poultry industry agreed, saying Foster Farms had put in place stringent food safety measures. “The company’s reputation up until lately has been spotless,” said Thomas E. Elam, president of farming consulting company FarmEcon in Carmel, Ind. “They’ve had an incredibly good safety record. They have been a really innovative company, jumping on top of the natural, eco-friendly, California themes.” What makes food safety particularly difficult for producers like Foster Farms is that salmonella can be present along any link in the supply chain. The bacteria thrive in animal intestinal tracts and are spread through contact with feces, whether in the air, water or ground. Feathers also can carry fecal dust particles. Chicken and turkey are more susceptible to contamination than beef or pork because the skin is often left on for consumption. Federal officials

said conditions such as those listed in the USDA’s letter to Foster Farms are not uncommon in the poultry industry. Samples at the three plants found rates of salmonella in chicken parts on par with industry standards. “The non-compliances identified in these three facilities were in no way indicative there was a process out of control,” said Dan Englejohn of the USDA’s inspection unit. Food safety advocates said that underscores a glaring weakness in the inspection system. They say virulent forms of antibiotic resistant salmonella should be handled like E. coli O157:H7, which triggers an automatic recall. “Producers have been successful at deflecting blame back on to consumers for not cooking poultry properly. It’s nonsensical,” said Bill Marler, a food safety lawyer who represented dozens of plaintiffs after an E. coli outbreak at Jack in the Box restaurants in the Pacific Northwest in the early 1990s. Antibiotic resistance has been blamed on overuse of drugs in agriculture. In the poultry industry, antibiotics help promote faster growth. The USDA and Foster Farms declined to say what, if any, kinds of antibiotics were used at the three plants associated with the salmonella outbreak.

Tree board sale today 80 oaks, maples ready to plant Berkeley Kerr, Iola parks superintendent, said the fall season is a perfect time to plant a new tree, and the Iola Tree Board has 80 to sell. Today is its annual sale, at the parks office at the west end of the football field in Riverside Park. Available are October Glory, Burgundy Bell and Autumn Blaze maple trees, as well as red oak trees for $12 each. Kerr said the recent droughts in 2011 and 2012 have killed off many shade-produc-

ing trees, and the sale will be a good opportunity to replace them at a low cost. He said fall is the best time to plant a tree, contrary to popular belief. “Most people think of spring and they think of planting,� he said. The sale starts at 8 a.m. at the park office, and will run until all the trees are gone — which generally doesn’t take very long, Kerr said. Last year, the trees were gone just minutes after the sale started.

At left, Kristy Sutherland and Berkeley Kerr examine some of the trees that are being sold today. For sale are 80 trees for $12 each. REGISTER/ STEVEN SCHWARTZ

Hope Unlimited affected by shutdown

Kansas man is hit by train, then gets up and walks away


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a Kansas man who was walking along railroad tracks wearing headphones was hit by a train that he didn’t hear approaching behind him — but that he got back up and kept walking. Shawnee County Sheriff Herman Jones said the BNSF conductor slowed down the train and blew the horn when he saw 25-year-old Kristopher Wenberg on the tracks in Topeka on Thursday. Wenberg told deputies he couldn’t hear the train, which eventually hit him. Jones says Wenberg promptly got back up and called someone on his cellphone as he walked away. He went to a hospital with cuts on his legs and shoulder. It is against the law to walk on train tracks and Wenberg will be cited for criminal trespass.

The governor said the state’s healthy cash reserves allow it to juggle funds to programs that are sustained by federal dollars. But spokeswoman Eileen Hawley says the juggling can’t continue through November. She said if the shutdown continues, the state can’t provide benefits for November under the Women, Infants and Children program, which helps poor mothers with young children buy food. She also said that the state won’t be able to provide cash assistance to poor families after midNovember.

While the government is busy having a political staring contest, a local organization is feeling the brunt of the federal shutdown. Hope Unlimited’s federal funding for the future could evaporate if the government doesn’t agree on its budget, said Dorothy Sparks, its director. The non-profit agency’s hopes were briefly lifted when an announcement from Attorney General Derek Schmidt this week said Hope Unlimited has been awarded grants totaling $103,500 for its victims services program. The announcement was not what it appeared, Sparks said. The grant is merely a reimbursement for this past quarter and the money has yet to arrive. The attorney general’s

message is no more than saying it is going to fund a previous commitment for which the funds have already been spent. Hope Unlimited depends on a mixture of federal and state funds. It receives 40 percent in federal funding and 60 percent in state funding. Its shoestring budget to help victims of domestic abuse is hanging by a thread. “I keep thinking I’ll wake up and turn the news on and they’ll be back to work,� Sparks said of the federal government which has shut down many “unessential programs.� Sparks said the organization has begun to take steps to adjust to their budget reality. “We’re going ahead and making cuts,� Sparks said. “We’re making personnel changes and moving staff around.� She also said hours will

Three U.S.-based scientists for developing computer models that can predict chemical reactions for use in creating new drugs and other tasks. Their approach combined classical physics and quantum physics. The winners are Martin Karplus of the University of Strasbourg, France, and Harvard University; Michael Levitt of the Stanford University School of Medicine, and Arieh Warshel of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

Three U.S.-based researchers for their breakthroughs in understanding how key substances move within a cell. They developed better understanding of vesicles, tiny bubbles that deliver their cargo within a cell to the right place at the right time. Disturbances in that delivery system can lead to neurological diseases, diabetes or immunological disorders. The prize was shared by Americans James E. Rothman of Yale University and Randy W. Schekman of the University of California at Berkeley; and German-American Dr. Thomas C. Sudhof of the Stanford University School of Medicine.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Saturday, October 12, 2013

Citywide cleanup is a welcome perk It’s corny, but every fall and spring I’m especially thankful for the citywide pickup of extra-size refuse. We hauled out guttering, an old grill, fencing, and indoor/outdoor carpeting that had failed the latter description. Astroturf would have been better. The city’s service comes courtesy of our taxes. The money is well spent. EARLIER this week I read an interview with Bill and Melinda Gates of Microsoft fame. They have a $3.4 billion foundation, part of which is used to help underdeveloped countries. Two years ago the foundation issued a challenge to develop a self-sustaining toilet that doesn’t rely on a public’s sewer, water or electrical systems and that would cost less than pennies per person a day to use. An estimated 2.6 billion of the world’s people still use a hole in the ground as a latrine. Besides the obvious, not having a public sanitation system results in the spread of diseases. The science of developing such a toilet is way beyond my ken and remains a challenge to scientists as well. The Gateses remain committed to the effort. Think of the difference flush toilets would make to the slums of the world, Bill Gates said. The point is especially poignant when I think of the contrast. Here in Allen County we’re about to open a new hospital replete with state-of-the art technologies. Within minutes, we’re able to receive care that ri-

Susan Lynn Register editor vals anywhere in the world. And as a country, we’re (finally) making health care darn near a universal privilege through the Affordable Care Act. I’ve been to countries whose governments are ineffective and corrupt to the point the majority of their people truly suffer. In Myanmar, Cambodia, and Haiti I’ve seen and smelled raw sewage coursing down the streets. In those countries, life expectancy remains in the low to mid 60s, whereas in the United States, we can expect to live into our upper 70s, ranking 51st among the world’s 223 countries. The United States isn’t perfect by a long shot. We still have way too many people not knowing where tonight’s meal will come from. That said, good governance makes all the difference, and democracy ranks right up there. I was going to put it as tops until I saw Monaco’s monarchy can crow about stellar rankings in health and education outcomes. But then you have to put up with the shenanigans of a royal family who has more out-of-wedlock births than Hollywood. So, thanks Iola, for the trash service. It’s what helps us keep on this side of civilized.

Iola of yesteryear a hopping place A woman called the other night to ask about a bit of Iola history. She wondered if I knew the name of a hotel on South Washington, and not the Kelley. After a second or two of thought, I blurted out the Portland. Satisfied with my keen knowledge of local history, I launched into more information about some other downtown Iola features of the early to mid-1900s. The next day I checked my hotel facts — which I should have at the start — and found it wasn’t the Portland that was across the street from the Kelley in the 200 block of South Washington. It was the Iola Hotel, just south of the old Iola Theatre. The Portland was at 121 E. Madison Ave., next door to the Portland Barber Shop, operated by Marion Green, according to my 1949 Iola City Directory. Listed under the Iola Hotel in the directory were the names of 15 people, who were longterm residents. That wasn’t unusual; hotels often doubled as

Today’s news in all shapes and sizes A couple of years ago, I hosted a leadership development class from northwest Kansas on a tour of the Kansas Press Association, followed by a discussion of the newspaper industry and how it had changed in the past decade. I posed a series of questions to the group. First, I asked for a show of hands of how many in the room subscribed to at least one print newspaper. More than half the class answered in the affirmative. Of those remaining, I then asked how many regularly got their news from one or more newspaper websites. All but one held up their hands. OK, I continued for that one remaining holdout: Do you consume your news at a non-newspaper Internet site? That last guy held out for a moment, then nodded his head in agreement. My point was simple: while some think they aren’t a “newspaper reader” if they don’t receive a printed copy on their doorstep or in the mail or pick it up at the local convenience store, the source of most “authoritative news” in our country is still — you guessed it — the newspaper. What is “authoritative” news? It’s news written by journalists, those who are trained to ask questions, write objectively and strive every day to get all sides of a story. When you read “news” online or on your mobile phone — especially local news — you’re more likely than not reading a story written by a

Doug Anstaett

newspaper journalist. How is that, you ask? Because much of what is available on the Internet uses as its basis information first assembled by a journalist. In other words, the facts of the story that lead to those interesting discussions at the coffee shop and online originated with a journalist, and in most cases one who works for a newspaper. This has been National Newspaper Week, a time set aside each year to recognize the role of newspapers in our daily lives.

Even with these challenges, newspaper staff members have continued to perform their two primary functions in American society: to keep the public informed and to be a watchdog on government. James Madison, our nation’s fourth president, said: “A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” Newspaper reporters from all corners of the state believe their watchdog role and the public’s right to know go hand in hand and that knowledge, especially of what our elected leaders are doing, is essential to our system of self-governance.

Newspaper reporters from all corners of the state believe their watchdog role and the public’s right to know go hand in hand ...

As you know, our industry is in the midst of dramatic change. Those technological advancements listed above have put pressure on our newspaper editors and publishers because they require them to collect the news and deliver it through a variety of avenues: print, online and, more often these day, through a mobile device.

I’m not asking you to take a newspaper reporter to dinner or to even pat him or her on the back. However, you might ponder for at least a moment how you would learn about the actions of government without them. Doug Anstaett is executive director of the Kansas Press Association and a former reporter, editor and publisher.

boarding houses. Marie Reynolds, who taught music at Humboldt during the same era and was one of my favorite teachers, lived in Parsons, but stayed at a hotel in Humboldt during the week. I thumbed through the directory and marveled at all the businesses we had in downtown Iola then, long before supermarkets and discounts houses such as Walmart — back when shopping and catching up with friends were coincidental. Many of the businesses were mom and pops, and professional folks, such as doctors, dentists and attorneys, often occupied the second floors of buildings that had one, two or more merchants on the ground

floor. In the first block of South Washington were 30 businesses or offices, all on the west side of the street opposite the courthouse lawn, including two flagship men’s clothing stores, the Globe, owned by Louis Schlanger, and W.C. Perham’s. In the half block south of Madison Avenue were another 13 stores and offices, including the Dutch Mill Lunch, at 107 S. Washington, just a handful of steps north of the Polly Ann Cafe. There were many places to get a bite to eat in downtown Iola in those days. A couple of other restaurants were Hart’s Lunch, 13 S. Jefferson Ave., and the South Street Cafe, 203 South St. High school kids loved to gather at Hart’s. By the time I arrived in Iola in 1964, my favorite was the White Grill at the intersection of State and West streets. For 50 cents you got a big burger smothered in grilled onions, enough Suzy-Qs to choke a horse and a Coke.

Project 17: Seeks to improve SEK Continued from A1

— On the average the region ranks 81st among Kansas’ 105 in health rankings. Allen County is 86th, Neosho 94th. — In the region, 18 percent of adults have earned a bachelor’s degree and 17 percent in Allen County, compared to 25 percent throughout the state. — Throughout the region 15 percent of families are at or below the federal poverty rate; 17 percent in Allen County. In the state the rate is 13 percent, just a point better than the national average of 14 percent. “We have a lot of room to improve there,” Morgan said. — More than $90 million is spent in various forms of public assistance in the 17 counties. A challenge, she said, is to find a way to help people break out of poverty. AS FOR ECONOMIC

One means, she said, is to increase the number of globally competitive innovative products and services. Collaboration — or networking — among the economic development entities and goods-pro-

ducing companies is an avenue. Project 17, through Morgan’s leadership and periodic meetings of those involved, should lead to positive results, she said. As for improving residents’ health, she said raising awareness of preventive care and finding ways to deal with generational poverty and substance abuse are key. A common refrain she hears from employers is that failure to a pass drug test often disqualifies potential employees. She recalled an employer who said he would hire 50 people, if he could find ones who qualified. Education also is an important factor. Networking employers and educators to ensure students are prepared to go to work is one means, Morgan said, and part of that is strengthening bonds between institutions within the region. Promotion of science, math and career/technical education is important. Morgan said narrowing the gap seen in “soft skills” also is important. Soft skills are such things as personality traits, social graces, communication, personal habits and optimism, as compared to hard skills, or occupational requirements, of a job.


New plans, no progress GOP looks to formulate strategy By ALAN FRAM and DAVID ESPO Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans are offering to pass legislation to avert a default and end the 11-day partial government shutdown as part of a framework that would include cuts in benefit programs, officials said today. Republicans also seek changes in the three-year-old health care law known as Obamacare as part of an end to an impasse that has roiled financial markets and idled 350,000 federal workers. President Barack Obama has insisted he will not negotiate with Republicans over federal spending — or anything else — until the government is reopened and the $16.7 debt limit raised to avert the possibility of default. Yet, regarding benefit programs, Obama has previously backed an increase in Medicare costs for better-off seniors, among other items, and that idea also has appeal for Republicans. The White House appeared briefly to wobble on the issue of negotiations on Thursday, until Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid emerged from a meeting with the president to reaffirm it emphatically. The House Republicans’ plan was outlined Thursday night in a White House meeting that included senior aides to Obama as well as to House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, several hours after Obama met with top Republicans. Without confirming any of the details under discussion, Cantor said, “We’re waiting to hear” from administration officials.

In addition to ending the shutdown and increasing the debt limit, under the proposal Congress and the White House would explore ways to ease across-theboard federal budget cuts that began taking effect a year ago, and replace at least part of them with benefit-program curbs that have been included in recent presidential budgets. Officials who described the approach did so on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to discuss private conversations. With the weekend approaching, and the deadline for raising the debt limit five days away, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell said it was time to “put this hysterical talk of default behind us and instead start talking about finding solutions to the problems.” McConnell and Senate Republicans met with Obama at the White House, a session that lasted about 90 minutes. Returning to the Capitol, GOP lawmakers huddled with McConnell, who told reporters, “Now we’re back here to actually work on trying to get a solution on a bipartisan basis.” Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb., predicted that “over the next three or four days I think you’ll have a House plan kind of morph into a Senate plan. ... I’m more optimistic today than I’ve been in the last two weeks.” Additionally, the House voted 248-176 to provide funds for nuclear arms research and security despite the shutdown. It was the latest GOP bill aimed at reviving popular programs during the shutdown — and the latest to die in the Senate, where Reid has rejected bills that fall short of fully reopening the government.

While much of the attention has been focused on the House in recent days, McConnell and other Republicans have been exploring possible legislation to avert the default and end the shutdown and to require the White House to make relatively modest concessions on the health care law. Among the possibilities is a repeal of a medical device tax in the law, or perhaps stronger income verification requirements for individuals who receive federal subsidies to purchase coverage.

Reunion: Long-time attendee meeting up with three sons Continued from A1

son’s home, 418 Campbell St., Lois Baeten was born, with Dr. R.O. Christian at bedside. She and her mother stayed a few days, giving each time to get a good grip on the world. “Back then, and when I had my sons, mothers stayed in the hospital (or at grandmother’s home) for several days, not like now when they have a baby and go right home,” Lois said. “I think it helps the mother” recover and gives her and child time to bond.

Growing up on a farm in the 1920s and during the Great Depression included all the chores expected of a child. She attended grades one through eight at Prairie Center, a tiny country school, and had a teacher who took time to tutor the kids in social sciences as well as the three Rs, so when they went into Humboldt for testing they could perform well. “We had to take tests at the end of our seventhand eighth-grade years,” Lois recalled, before they

could move to the next grade. The first day of her freshman year at Humboldt High, she took a seat in the back of the room in A.J. Trueblood’s Kansas history class. Another Prairie Center transplant was bolder. “Gerald McCall sat on the front row,” she said, and immediately was met with razing from a town kid: “You’re a country hick, get to the back of the room.” The teacher would have none of that; the bully was reprimanded.

Her time in high school went smoothly, with an event in her senior year memorable. “The teachers asked if I’d represent the school as its queen in a parade at Pittsburg,” Lois said. “Well, I had to talk to my folks first, and Mom asked what I had to wear.” An outfit quickly came to mind, knowing that buying a fancy new dress was out of the question. “Mom had made me a suit (skirt and jacket) from an old man’s suit,” Lois said. “It was shark skin and was beautiful.” She wore it in the parade and drew second looks from boys who had never seen her before. That didn’t impress; there was a boy at home. LOIS AND George Squire were married in July 1941, a little over a month after she graduated from Humboldt High.

He was farming near Bottineau, N.D., and Lois joined him 10 days after their first son, George Jr., was born in Chanute. Their farm was near enough to Canada “if you went out and wandered around you might cross the border.” They cleaned up an old farmhouse, but soon decided a place in town would be more comfortable. Curtis was born there and Jean was on the way when the Squires divorced. “I moved back to live with my parents,” Lois said. After her third son’s birth, she worked for an oil company for a while and she and a friend went to the state fair in Hutchinson to work in a ticket booth for extra money. One evening a Highway Patrol captain came to pick up ticket money. Lois asked if the High-

way Patrol ever hired women. “Sure, as secretaries,” he said, and told her she should apply. “I did, got hired and spent the next 31 years working for the Highway Patrol in Chanute,” Lois said. Did she ever consider remarrying? “I didn’t have time,” Lois huffed. “I was raising three boys and working all the time,” either at her full-time job or on the farm with her parents. “When we put up silage, I’d take vacation to help cook for the men.” After her parents’ deaths in the early 1960s, she mortgaged 80 acres she owned and built the home where she lives today. “I paid off the mortgage in two years,” she said. THE



reunion has been a big part of Lois’ life. She served as an officer several years, including two terms as president, and remembers long evenings baking cookies before organizers decided to go commercial for refreshments at Friday evening’s gettogether. “Every class was responsible for 10 dozen cookies,” she said. “Sometimes we’d have leftovers, but they didn’t last long.” Otherwise, the reunion hasn’t changed all that much, other than being moved from the old school gym to the new community fieldhouse. Former students flock to the event. About 500 have made reservations for tonight’s fete and a few stragglers are likely to slip in.

National Geographic exhibit recognizes female photographers MCT

WASHINGTON — National Geographic, the magazine that showcases the world’s best photography, is recognizing the women behind many of those images with a landmark exhibit, “Women of Vision,” that opened Thursday. Each of the 11 female photojournalists, selected for the extraordinary breadth and depth of their storytelling, has a space in the National Geographic Museum for her unique view, covering everything from Texas teenagers struggling with identity to child brides in Yemen to the indigenous Sami

people, reindeer herders of Scandinavia. The exhibit of 100 photographs, part of the magazine’s 125th anniversary celebration, opened to overflow crowds. During an evening program in the National Geographic Society’s auditorium, all 11 photographers discussed their work. The exhibit will be in Washington through March 9. It then begins a three-year, five-city tour, with the first stop March 29 at the Mint Museum in Charlotte, N.C. “Each photographer has a distinct eye,” said Kathryn Keane, the vice

president of National Geographic Exhibitions. “In reviewing photos for the magazine’s 125th anniversary, we were struck by how many of the photographs were done by women photojournalists. They have all captured the world in a unique way.” Waiting and gaining the trust of their subjects can take days, months or even longer, and Keane said that women had a special ability to connect with other women, especially in societies in the Middle East, where there’s limited contact between men and women who aren’t related.

In a photo from the other side of the world, Amy Toensing captured the stress of a years-long drought on a family in the Australian Outback. A pretty young girl is pulling her blond hair back from her face, her eyes scrunched as the sand stings her eyes. In the mirror of the pickup, her father is pulling her brother out of the back, and everywhere there is a brown vastness. “I wanted to put a human face on the drought,” said Toensing, who took the shot from inside the truck. “I was along, literally and figuratively, for the ride.”

Fillies split VB matches COFFEYVILLE — Iola High’s volleyball team picked up a road split Thursday, defeating host Field Kindley High of Coffeyville in straight sets, 25-20, 25-15, before falling in three sets to Labette County, 25-22, 20-25, 25-13. The Fillies shared the wealth in the win over Field Kindley, with six players registering between two and six kills. As a team, Iola attacked successfully at a .318 clip and rang up an impressive 14 service aces. Emery Driskel led the way with six kills, seven aces, one dig and one blocked shot. Emma Piazza had 10 assists; Kyra Moore, 9. Hannah Endicott served up four aces. Things didn’t go as smoothly against Labette County. “We just couldn’t put an entire match together,” Iola head coach Emily Sigg said. “We played well in spurts, but nothing consistently.” See FILLIES | Page B2


While district play hasn’t yet started, and Iola High isn’t even assured of a Pioneer League championship, Friday’s 38-20 win over Wellsville was “a big step forward for our program,” head coach Doug Kerr said. Still smarting from a somewhat surprising 28-7 loss to Central Heights a week earlier, Iola took control defensively early on, then rode a tide of big plays and huge momentum swings to pull away in the second half. “We took a bad loss, but we didn’t let it fester and become two losses,” Kerr said. “That’s a huge testament to our kids, our program, and our town.” The victory wasn’t as

IHS tennis season ends By RICHARD LUKEN

PARSONS — Faced with some of their toughest competition of the season Friday, Iola High’s Fillies tennis team failed to advance to the second day of the Class 4A Regionals, but still showed marked improvement on the season. Each of the Iola entries were faced with players ranked in the top six of the regional, coach Jenn Bycroft noted. Iola’s Megan Smith went 1-1 on the day. She started out quickly, jumping out to a 5-1 lead, and held from there in a 9-4 victory over Chelsea Burroughs of Coffeyville’s Field See TENNIS | Page B6

easy as the score might indicate. Iola led 10-0 at halftime before Wellsville chewed up almost eight minutes of possession to start the third quarter. But Iola’s Kaden Macha tripped up Eagle quarterback Shamus Kearney a yard shy of the first down marker on a fourth-and-two play at the Mustang 19. The stop triggered an avalanche of fun over the next 1 1/2 quarters. John Whitworth took the ball on the next play from scrimmage 81 yards to paydirt to up the lead to 17-0, before Wellsville’s Brett Osbern returned the favor on a 95yard kickoff return for a touchdown to cut the Eagle deficit back to 10. Iola’s Kaden Macha scored on a 3-yard run late in the third to push the lead back to 24-7, and the Mustangs thought

they had Wellsville stopped on its next possession. Kerr called timeout with 2 seconds left in the period in order to force the Eagles to punt into the gusty southeast wind. Instead, Wellsville went for it on fourth down, and Landyn Holtwick blasted around the end and went untouched for a 67-yard touchdown to cut the lead to 24-14. Even more troublesome, Iola’s Bryce Misenhelter was ejected from the game on the play for stepping on a Wellsville player as Osbern raced to the end zone. Wellsville forced a Mustang punt, and looked to be in business at midfield when Iola’s Trent Latta and Whitworth combined on the biggest defensive play See IOLA | Page B3

Eagles thump Marmaton Valley UNIONTOWN — The painful lessons continue for the Marmaton Valley Wildcats, but Coach Dan Uhlrich sees the remainder of the season as a test for his players. The Wildcats dropped a district matchup in Uniontown 58-12 Friday night. “Football is an emotional game,” Uhlrich said. “We’ve got to keep fighting.” The Eagles broke the field open in the first quarter, with two touchdowns early in the contest. The Wildcat defense held, however, on their opponents ensuing drive. T Micheal Genn broke through the defensive line midway through the second for a 35-yard touchdown to put the Wildcats on the board. The Eagles immediately responded with a return touchdown. Genn had the other score for the Wildcats on another 11-yard run before the

Marmaton Valley High defenders gang tackle a Uniontown High runner Friday in the Wildcats’ 68-12 loss. REGISTER/STEVEN SCHWARTZ half came to an end. Genn led in rushing for the Wildcats with 15 carries for 94 yards, followed by Chance Stevenson with 11 carries for 59 yards. Defensively, Stevenson had eight solo tackles, followed by Austin Pinkerton and Joey Jefferies with six apiece. Uhlrich is co-coaching the team with Kyle

McAloon and Derek Scharff, after former Head Coach Kent Houk resigned the week before the Wildcats’ first game. Uhlrich said he saw some improvement from his team, but the remaining games are going to be a test for each and every player. “How we finish the season is going to say a lot about our guys,”

Uhlrich said. The loss puts the Wildcats at 1-4 on the season, and 0-2 in district play. They play against the Pleasanton Blu-Jays at home Friday.

Special teams costly for Wildcats YATES CENTER — Take away several misadventures with their punting game, and Yates Center High was able to put up quite a fight against powerful Marais des Cygnes Valley High Friday night. But the special teams errors were too much to overcome, Wildcat head coach Ben Wiehn said. Marais des Cygnes ran back two punts for touchdowns, and had a third long run that

wound up back at Yates Center’s original line of scrimmage. Another punt was blocked, while a fifth went awry when the ball was snapped over the punter’s head and rolled dead at the Wildcat 5. The plays were crucial in Marais des Cygnes’ 64-16 win to drop the Wildcats to 3-3 on the season and 1-1 in district play. “They’re a good team, and they have a lot of depth,” Wiehn

said. “The punts led to 30 of their points. We just couldn’t overcome that.” Still, Wiehn praised his team’s effort. “We were able to hang with them for the most part,” he said. “They gouged us for a couple of big plays on play action. They have a good quarterback.” Yates Center trailed 8-0 on a punt return for a touchdown when Caleb DeNoon scored for the Wildcats on a quar-

terback sneak to tie the score. Austin McNett later added a four-yard run for Yates Center. DeNoon rushed for 113 yards, threw for 43 more and had four tackles and an interception on defense. McNett rushed for 75 yards. Robert Arnold had 33 yards receiving to go with six tackles and two sacks. Yates Center travels to St. Paul next Friday to continue district play.

Cubs hammered HUMBOLDT — Head Coach K.B. Criss has a good mindset going into district play, especially after enduring a 47-0 lashing courtesy of the Caney Valley Bullpups Friday night. “We need to bounce back and prepare out tails off this week,” Criss said in an email Friday night. “Everyone is 0-0 now.” The Bullpups dropped 432 yards of total offense Friday, compared to the Cubs’ 151. The visitors had the Cubs on their heals from the start, putting up 16 points in the first quarter. They added another 14 before the half. “I thought we played well early; we were in the right spots,” Criss said. “We just missed too many tackles.” The Bullpups scored another 14 points in

third quarter. “Caney is a good team, they are fast, physical and are deep,” Criss said. Offensively, the Cubs rushed 12 times for 15 yards. They passed 33 times for 136 yards. Alex Murrow led in rushing with five carries for 25 yards; he completed 14 of 33 for 136 yards. Corey Whitcomb hauled in the ball five times for 48 yards, Grayson Pearish followed with four receptions for 40 yards. Humboldt kicks off district play at home against Eureka Friday.

Iola: Victory puts Mustangs atop Pioneer League standings Continued from B1

the game. Latta’s solo tackle jarred the ball from Osbern on a firstdown run, and Whitworth was on the ball in an instant. First down, Mustangs. Latta was on the receiving end of a key, 17-yard pass from Tyler McIntosh three plays later to set Iola up at the Wellsville 11. Macha scored on a one-yard keeper to push the lead to 31-14. Mustang senior Cody Conner snuffed Wellsville’s next drive with an interception at midfield, leading to Latta’s second key catch of the half, a 19-yard touchdown strike from McIntosh to put the game out of reach. McIntosh was 8 of 10 passing for 120 yards and two touchdowns in a nice

comeback game from last week’s three-interception performance. One of his incompletions bounced through a receiver’s hands, and the other was just a shade too far out of bounds for Latta to catch. “I’m proud of how Tyler bounced back,” Kerr said. “You could tell he was a little tenuous with his passes early on, but he really started to trust his receivers and made some nice throws.”

THE TEAMS traded punts in the first quarter until McIntosh found Adam Kauth on a short pass on fourth down midway through the period. Kauth rambled 42 yards for the touchdown and a 7-0 lead. Isaias Macias pushed the lead to 10-0 in the second quarter on a 37yard field goal — into the

wind, no less. Meanwhile, Iola’s defense was downright stifling over the first two quarters. The Mustangs held Wellsville to 32 yards of total offense before halftime and only three first downs. Iola escaped trouble at the end of the half, when a short punt with 2 seconds left allowed Wellsville to lob a pass downfield that drew a pass interference penalty with no time left on the clock. Kearney’s pass to the end zone was just wide of the target to keep Wellsville scoreless at the half. A slight adjustment in strategy at intermission helped pave the way for

Iola’s second-half fireworks. With Wellsville’s aggressive defenders plugging the gaps at seemingly ever turn, Iola called more cutbacks and counter plays, including Whitworth’s 81yard score. Kauth also was able to gouge the Eagle defense for 35 and 12 yards. The Mustangs rushed for 222 yards in the contest, led by Whitworth’s 102 yards on nine carries. Kauth carried three times for 48 yards, while Brice Aiello had 33 yards on eight carries. Shane Walden led the defense with eight tackles, followed by Latta

with seven stops and a forced fumble. Kaden Macha also had seven tackles. Conner had a pick, and Whitworth the key fumble recovery. Holtwick’s 89 yards on four carries paced Wellsville. Kearney was 6 of 13 passing for 41 yards and a pick.

WITH THE win, Iola moves back into a firstplace tie in the Pioneer League standings at 3-1 (4-2 overall). The loss was the first in league play for Wellsville (3-1).

Central Heights dropped to 2-2 in league play with its 18-14 loss to Prairie View Friday. But any hopes for a postseason berth will hinge on the next three weeks as Iola opens Class 4A, District 6 play at Chanute next Friday. After that is a trip to Fort Scott before the regular season ends on Halloween night at home against Anderson County. “It certainly doesn’t get any easier,” Kerr said.

Providing help for a voiceless horn Dear Tom and Ray:

I have a 2000 Chevrolet Astro Van. The emergency warning device (aka, the horn) will work only if the outside temperature is above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Seriously — I’m not making this up. Sometimes, if the temperature is near 55 degrees, and if I hold the horn button down for between one and three minutes, the horn will work. Once I get the horn to blow, it will work all day from then on. I’m about to buy an add-on button and attach it to an aftermarket horn, maybe with the “Dukes of Hazzard” theme. All kidding aside, it is a serious problem because I live in a cold part of the country, and for many months, the days above 55 are few and far between. Please help. Thank you! — Dan RAY: No, thank YOU, Dan. This is the easiest question we’ve had all day. As modern cars

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi go, the horn system is a very simple one. TOM: Even for my brother! There’s a horn pad on your steering wheel. When you press on it, you push together two metal contacts. RAY: When those contacts touch, they don’t make the horn blow. “Why not?” you say. “That’s what happens in my car!” Well, yes, but there’s an intermediate step you don’t know about. TOM: The horn takes too much current to safely run through your steering wheel, so those contacts in the wheel trigger a horn relay, which is just a heavyduty switch that lives either under the dashboard or under the hood. RAY: Then the relay

closes and allows power to flow through to the horn itself (the noisemaking part of the system), which sits in front of the radiator. TOM: So, one of those three components is not working. RAY: Thank you, Steve McGarrett. TOM: Start by checking the horn itself first. Old horns do rust out and fail this way. The easiest way to test it is — when the horn’s not working — have someone try to honk the horn while you tap on the casing with a screwdriver or something. If you can get it to make any sound at all — even some sickgoose-like half-honking — that means your problem is in the horn. RAY: And keep in mind that there are two horns that blow at the same time when you honk (that’s what produces those two dissonant notes). It’s possible that the first one died in,

like, 2005. And maybe you’ve just now noticed that the second one is gone. TOM: You also can test the horn more scientifically by hooking up a test light to it. If the test light goes on when someone honks the horn for you but the horn doesn’t make any noise, then you know the horn is getting current and just isn’t working. RAY: If the horn is NOT getting current, then it’s either the contacts in the steering wheel’s horn pad, or it’s the horn relay. TOM: I’d bet on the relay first. Why? Because it’s easier to replace a $20 relay than it is to take apart a steering wheel. RAY: If a new horn relay doesn’t fix it, then you know it’s in the steering wheel, and you’ll have to take it to a mechanic and shell out some money, Dan. Or go for that “add-on” horn button. Good luck.

Spray prompts questions of birth defects DEAR DR. ROACH:

My younger sister was pregnant when we took a flight. When the plane stopped in Brazil, the cabin was sprayed with an aerosol that caused the cabin to remain milky white for two to three hours. Her newborn was born one month premature and was diagnosed with achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. Do you know of any studies linking achondroplasia with chemical exposure during the first trimester of pregnancy? — M.T. ANSWER: The spray probably was an insecticide. The U.S. stopped spraying cabins after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found the practice ineffective and potentially harmful. Spraying the cabin is humiliating and creates an entirely reasonable fear. Achondroplasia is caused by a specific gene abnormality. It can be in-

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health

herited, but also occurs as a spontaneous change in the DNA (mutation). It is estimated that every person has several spontaneous mutations. In your sister’s case, the


mutation would likely have happened before your sister was born. For this specific case, I believe the spray did not cause the achondroplasia.

Tennis: Season ends for Fillies at Class 4A regional tournament Continued from B1

Kindley High in a playin match to secure the 11th seed. Smith’s season ended in the second round, with a 6-0, 6-0 defeat at the hand of sixth seed, Chanute High’s Rebecca Wendt. Iola’s two doubles teams both dropped their opening matches. Alexis Hobbs and Bobbi Sinclair, the 14th seed, fell to third-seeded Bree Rogers and Kelsey Jump of Parsons, 6-0, 6-0. Shelby Reno and Allyson Hobbs, seeded 15th, fell to second seed Dee Mendoza and Carringtyn Julian of Independence, 6-1, 6-0. “Advancing to (today’s) round just didn’t happen for us today,” Bycroft said. I was thrilled for Megan that she won her first match. That always helps the confidence. She played really well. “Though our doubles teams didn’t get the victory today, I was pleased with how they

played,” Bycroft continued. “Both teams were up against some tough competition. We finally started to adjust to how they were playing in the second set. It just didn’t give us enough time to bounce back, though.”

Iola loses three seniors, Smith, Alexis Hobbs and Katie Lieurance, who missed the regionals because of illness. “As a coach, it’s always tough and emotional seeing your seniors sad

because it’s their last match in high school,” Bycroft said. “I’m really going to miss them, but

I’m excited to see what their future plans are. I was proud of my whole regional team today.

They all showed super sportsmanship, and they have a lot of fun while playing.”

The Lancers only took 15 seconds off the clock in the third quarter — time for Hunter Frazell to return the secondhalf kickoff 68 yards, to end the game 50-0 at home against the Lions. “It was a good win for the boys,” Head Coach Brent Smith said. “Everybody who suited up got to play in the game. It was important for the team.”

Royce Smith had five saves; Brett Willis had four. THE 14-and-under team picked up a pair of wins, 5-2 over Spring Hill and 7-0 over Louisburg. Matt Karr had four goals in the Spring Hill victory. Chloe Gardner added a goal and an assist. Karr also had an assist, as did Colin Bedell and Nolan Jones. Brett Plumlee had seven saves in goal. Karr and Gardner both scored two goals in the shutout win over Louisburg. Karr also had three assists. Eason Cheung, Babcock and Plumlee also scored goals. Bedell had two assists. Gardner and Desiree Hartpence had one goal apiece. Plumlee and Sell had three saves each.

LE ROY — “Moving the ball” didn’t seem to be enough for Southern Coffey County High Friday night. Instead, turnovers mounted up against the Titans in a 64-14 beating at the hands of the Chetopa Hornets. “We moved the ball, we just didn’t finish drives and the turnovers really got us,” Head Coach Korey Lankton said in an email.

prove himself. Frazell had five carries for 60 yards as well. “I was happy with our running game tonight,” Smith said. The coaching staff must have been happy, the team attempted zero passes in the contest. Vermillon had two interceptions and one fumble recovery (which resulted in a touchdown) against the Lions. Clayton Miller and Greene each had an interception as well. Brandon Brallier led the team in tackles with 10, followed by Vermillon with nine. Landon Stephens, Miller, Clay-

ton Strickler and Kellen Ramsey each had a sack as well. Crest travels to Chetopa in a key district matchup Friday night, and Smith said their team needs to bolster their pass coverage on the pass-happy Hornets for next week.

The Hornets put two touchdowns on the board before Josiah Witteman hauled in a 46-yard pass from Chism Newkirk to put the Titans on the board late in the first quarter. The Titans put a drive together midway through the quarter, ending in a 9-yard Walker Harred touchdown. Two consecutive scoring drives from the Hornets, coupled with a 73-yard interception re-

turn for touchdown, put the nails in the coffin for the Titans at the half. The Titans outrushed the Hornets with 200 yards total, compared to their 127. But, the story was from the air. The Hornets passed for 200 yards. The Titans lost two fumbles and tossed three interceptions. Harred led in rushing with 142 yards on 23 carries, followed by Newkirk with seven carries for 32 yards.

From the air, Newkirk completed six of 14 passes for 88 yards. Witteman had four receptions for 58 yards. Defensively, Carter Toy had two unassisted tackles along with Tyler Houston.

The win puts the Lancers’ record spliteven across the board for the season — 1-1 in district play and 3-3 overall. Austin Greene, Cody Vermillon, Rene Rodriguez and Hunter Frazell each contributed to the scoring onslaught in the first three quarters. Rodriguez led in rushing with six carries for 72 yards. Smith said Rodriguez started late in the season and had been kicking for the team. They decided to test his ground game Friday night, and he seemed to

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


A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves


Taking aim at the top, or settling into that third-place seat? Was Kansas the start of a Kevin Harvick rally? GODSPEAK: Yes. I’ve got Harvick fever. He figured it out. Keep your car out front and you win the race. KEN’S CALL: Yeah, he rallied all the way to third in the standings. That’s about where it’ll end.

James Hylton finally retired at 79. What’s next for him? GODSPEAK: He can coach up much younger drivers, like Ken Schrader and Bobby Labonte. KEN’S CALL: Next season’s sentimental favorite on “Dancing With the Stars.”




It’s a fact. Young drivers can’t outrace Father Time. Jeff Gordon took NASCAR by storm in the mid-1990s but hasn’t won a championship since 2001. For those of you counting at home, that’s a 12-year title drought for the 42-year-old. But the driver, once called “Wonder Boy,” says he still has a passion for stock-car racing and winning and chasing championships. Gordon has endured some down years, but he’s not out, and he continues to make history. He became the first 13th driver added to a Chase field, thanks to NASCAR Chairman Brian France’s 11th-hour decree. Gordon is making the most of the second chance, scoring top-fives in his past two starts and moving north in the standings. He started shotgun on the field in Chase Race 1. Now, he’s fourth and a tempting 32 points from Chase leader Matt Kenseth with six races left. “We’ve had a tough year,” Gordon said after a third-place finish at Kansas. “Last year was tough enough, and then this year, I thought that we’d gotten all that out of our system and we didn’t seem to have. “But I’ll tell you what, we never stopped working and trying to get the cars to suit my liking. And when the cars are solid and giving me good feedback and I can get aggressive with it, then my confidence goes up. And right now my team has been bringing great race cars to the race track. I’m having a lot of fun.”



Here’s a “Silly Season” deal done under the radar. Brad Keselowski, the 2012 Cup champion, and his sponsor, MillerCoors, quietly inked “multiyear” contract extensions with Penske Racing. “The extensions of our agreements with both Brad Keselowski and MillerCoors put our team in a real position of strength moving forward,” team owner Roger Penske said. “This is an important day as these agreements will allow Penske Racing to invest significantly in our people and our technology, two critical areas to a successful race team.” When you think about all the drama provided by Keselowski the past few years, he is priceless.

A CAUTION FOR WHAT? The Kansas race produced 15 yellow flags. Most were for crashes, but caution No. 8 was for “smoke in Turn 1,” according to the race report. The smoke was coming from a small grass fire near a spectator area, making it the weirdest caution of the season.

Can Kyle now be Kyle? He held it together pretty well during the regular season and through three weeks into the Chase, but he seemed intent on sending folks to their underground shelters in Kansas. He wrecked Brad Keselowski on Saturday, then became a one-man caution flag on Sunday. Then, of course, he ripped the track and Goodyear. Yep, he’s back.

The guy who has redefined the expectations of a lame-duck driver. As discussed all season long — back when it became apparent Kevin Harvick was leaving Richard Childress Racing after this year — drivers rarely run up front when they’re spending so much of their off time packing boxes. Maybe the current business climate has dictated changes, or maybe it’s the robust competitive spirit of Harvick and Childress. Whatever, they’ve ducked the normal issues that dog such teams and now run third.

To her credit, she took full blame for her first-lap crash. Of course, she’d gone untouched and had no other choice. nascardaytona

Like most ducks, you can’t see his legs. Trust us, he’s pedaling like a mad man.



The “Pepsi Generation” isn’t getting any younger, but Jeff Gordon is trying to stay in the fast lane.


Kyle Busch vs. Brad Keselowski: Busch wrecked Keselowski in the Kansas Nationwide race, triggering Keselowski to say, “I got wrecked by a dirty driver.” Godwin Kelly gives his take: “These two guys don’t like each other at all, and this will likely transfer up to the Sprint Cup Series.”
