Humboldt students secure $200,000 grant Will go toward building sidewalks, crosswalks By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

HUMBOLDT — Kansas Department of Transportation awarded USD 258 a $200,000 grant to help ensure students walking to school are safe. The Safe Routes to School grant was announced at Monday evening’s board of education meeting. Middle school students did the leg work for the grant under direction of Mary Durand, a math in-

structor, and found that persistence and patience pays off. They first applied for the grant two years ago. When it didn’t come Humboldt’s way, the students, with blessings of the city council and school board members, tried again and found success. The students surveyed routes connecting elementary and secondary schools, produced videos showing problem areas and talked to residents in preparation for the grant application. The grant will be used to construct crosswalks and sidewalks and erect reflective signs along the routes. Kay Bolt, elementary and middle schools principal, said two other grants were coming the district’s way.

One is for rural schools of $34,061 from the federal government and will pay for professional development and purchase of classroom supplies. The other, $1,158 from the Kansas Department of Education, will fund an eight-week health education program for elementary students. Called Power Panther Pals, the program encourages students to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, more low-fat and calcium-rich foods and to be physically active. SUPERINTENDENT of Schools K.B. Criss said the digital curriculum, which replaced textbooks with laptop computers, was settling into place after See GRANT | Page A6

Senate closes in on agreement By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate leaders are closing in on an agreement to reopen the government and forestall an economy-rattling default on U.S. obligations. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky could seal an agreement today, just two days before the Treasury Department says it will run out of borrowing capacity. The emerging pact would reopen the government through Jan. 15 and permit the Treasury to borrow normally until early to mid-February, easing dual crises that have sapped confidence in the economy and taken a sledgehammer to the GOP’s poll numbers.

Standing up for Kansas libraries By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

It may seem like Kansas’ public libraries are fighting “an uphill battle” to Roger Carswell at times. But, according to the Friends of Kansas Libraries, he’s doing a stand-up job. Carswell, director of the Southeast Kansas Public Library System and the Iola Public Library, was recently awarded the Duane Johnson Library Leadership Award. Named after the former state librarian, the award recognizes top-notch leadership in libraries statewide. “I was surprised,” Carswell said Monday afternoon. The award recipient is selected by a private board, and no nominations are given. Carswell said the award meant a lot to him, as an affirmation of his work and the library system in general. He also said he is in good company with former recipients. “There are people I respect very highly,” Carswell said as he See CARSWELL | Page A6

It’s urgent national leaders find solutions to vexing issues so that the country doesn’t “lurch from one financial crisis to another.” — Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.

“The general framework is there” between Reid and McConnell, said Sen. Bob Corker, RTenn. He said conversations with the House were continuing and he thought it would be midday today at the earliest before a plan was finalized. President Barack Obama telephoned McConnell on Monday to talk about the emerging deal, a McConnell aide said. Congressional leaders had been scheduled to meet with Obama at the White House on Monday, but the meeting was postponed to allow more time for negotiations. Sen. Mark Pryor, an Arkansas Democrat who was part of the bipartisan group known as the Gang of 12 which labored over the weekend to end the stalemate, said today he was “pretty confident” the Senate leadership and the White House would announce an agreement some time later in the day.

Board informed of A season district discrepencies for giving By KAYLA BANZET kayla@iolaregister.com

USD 257 Board of Education members were in the zone Monday night. Sherry Riebel, Allen County Clerk, addressed the members about school district boundaries. Riebel said the district’s current map omits certain areas that should be included. Riebel also suggested the board adopt an “at-large” plan for electing school board members. The board currently has six member districts with one board member elected from each and one atlarge. Members voiced their concerns of adjusting the

districts. “We don’t exactly have people knocking down doors to run,” Tony Leavitt, board president said. “We would potentially have a larger list if we did go the at-large route.” Mark Burris, board member, was concerned how the at-large option would change the district. “It’s something that will have a large impact on our district for many years,” he said. Jack Koehn, superintendent of schools, asked members to form a small committee in order to discuss the re-zoning in depth. Leavitt,

Impasse: Senate closes in on deal Continued from A1

Speaking of the House, Pryor told CNN that “some Republicans are, quite honestly, they’re acting childish about this. They almost want a shutdown. They almost want to see us break the debt ceiling.” Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., also a part of the Gang of 12, told “CBS This Morning” she believes an agreement is near that “doesn’t contain a lot of the partisan pills” that sank earlier proposals. She said it’s urgent that national leaders find solutions to vexing issues so that the country doesn’t “lurch from one financial crisis to another.” Many House conservatives were unhappy

about the emerging framework, though it remained to be seen whether they would seek to change it. “One of the things we want to test is just basic fairness,” Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, an influential group of House conservatives, said on CNN today. He was asked how conservatives would respond to the plan taking shape in the Senate. “One of the things we don’t want to see is just another patch,” he said. “We’re willing to get the government open. We want to get the government open,” Scalise said. “Hopefully they get something done that ad-

dresses the spending issue.” The developing plan is a far cry from the assault on “Obamacare” that tea party Republicans originally demanded as a condition for a short-term funding bill to keep the government fully operational. It lacks the budget cuts demanded by Republicans in exchange for increasing the government’s $16.7 trillion borrowing cap. Nor does the framework contain any of a secondary set of House GOP demands, like a one-year delay in the health law’s mandate that individuals buy insurance. Instead, it appeared likely to tighten income verification requirements for indi-

viduals who qualify for Obamacare subsidies and may repeal a $63 fee that companies must pay for each person they cover under the big health care overhaul beginning in 2014. Democratic and Republican aides described the outlines of the potential agreement on condition of anonymity because the discussions were ongoing. But with GOP poll numbers plummeting and the country growing weary of a shutdown entering its third week, Senate Republicans in particular were eager to end the shutdown — and avoid an even greater crisis if the government were to default later this month.

3 U.S. economists win Nobel Prize Murder case heads By DON LEE Tribune Washington Bureau

because no one person is likely to know more in the long run than the overall market. That insight provided the underpinning for stock index funds that have since become investment vehicles for billions of dollars. Shiller, 67, co-founder of the commonly used Case-Shiller housing price index, provided a vital counterpoint: He showed how markets can still badly malfunction because of behavior such as excessive optimism. His insight helped him correctly anticipate the bubble in technology stocks more than a decade ago and the housing market boom before its collapse. “In Fama’s telling, a stock price reflects the wisdom of crowds,” University of Michigan economist Justin Wolfers wrote in a column describing the work of the two men. “In Shiller’s telling, markets can be subject to extraordinary popular delusions and the madness of crowds.” It was Shiller who persuaded Alan Greenspan, when he was chairman of the Federal Reserve, to warn of “irrational exuberance” in the stock market before the dot-com bust, Wolfers noted. Hansen, 60, developed key statistical tools to use real-life data to test hypotheses about asset pricing. Though he is less known to the public than Shiller or Fama, Hansen’s methods for analyzing data and studying relationships have become standard tools for social scientists. The Nobel committee, in announcing the $1.2 million prize that will be split among the three economists, largely glossed over the sharp differences in Fama’s and Shiller’s work. Instead, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences focused on their

of home prices in U.S. cities — showed prices had risen 18 percent in inflation-adjusted terms from the bottom of the market in March 2012. “Whether it’s a new boom or a new bubble,” he said, “I think it’s still an unanswered question.” This year’s awards did not mark the first time that the prize, for-

If your home prices are surging, how do you know it’s irrational exuberance? Maybe the price should be double. — John H. Cochrane, University of Chicago economist

will be futile at best. But if markets are inherently flawed because of basic irrational elements of human nature, then well-designed government policies can provide better outcomes. In 2010, two years after the onset of the financial crisis, Fama maintained that pricing remained rational. On Monday, John H. Cochrane, a University of Chicago economist who is also Fama’s sonin-law and shares his views, challenged the notion that we could even know what a bubble is. “If your home prices are surging, how do you know it’s irrational exuberance? Maybe the price should be double,” he said. And if we don’t know when a bubble exists, he asked, how can policymakers such as members of the Federal Reserve Board possibly take preemptive steps to pop it? “It’s a recipe for a disaster for the government,” he said. “They don’t know what the price of tomatoes are going to be; forget about housing.” Shiller said during a news conference Monday that the CaseShiller housing index that he helped develop — a systematic measure

mally known as the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, has been given to scholars with seemingly opposing views. In 1974, Friedrich August Hayek, the Austrian libertarian economist, shared the Nobel Prize with Karl Gunnar Myrdal, the liberal Swedish scholar known for his studies of inequality. The latest award marked yet another economics Nobel for the University of Chicago, which said Monday that it now had 28 laureates associated with the university, including six economics winners currently on the faculty. Fama’s ideas are known as the “efficient market” hypothesis — the view that markets function very well, involve rational agents and incorporate all available information at any given moment. If markets are so efficient that they reflect everything people know, the thinking goes, then we can’t predict tomorrow’s prices because there shouldn’t be any information that has not already been factored into the price. Indeed, as most individual stock pickers can attest, beating the market in the short run is extremely difficult.

to Supreme Court

Man charged in killing of Kansas sheriff WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments this week on whether a Kansas man who fatally shot a sheriff waived his rights against self-incrimination by claiming his use of methamphetamine made him incapable of understanding the gravity of his actions. Scott Cheever, 32, admitted he shot Greenwood County Sheriff Matt Samuels after a night of making and smoking meth in January 2005. He was convicted of capital murder in October 2007 and was sentenced to death. The Kansas Supreme Court overturned that verdict in August 2012, ruling that prosecutors had violated Cheever’s Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination when they allowed an expert witness to discuss the results of a mental examination a federal judge had required Cheever to take, The Wichita Eagle reported. In its ruling, the state court found that the Fifth Amendment prevents prosecutors from using a mental exam against a defendant at trial. When he announced in September that he was appealing, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said he didn’t think the state court correctly interpreted the Fifth Amendment. Schmidt will argue

before the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday that Cheever should be retried. Georgetown University law professor Neal Katyal will represent Cheever. Nobody in eight years of legal proceedings has disputed that Cheever fatally shot Samuels as the sheriff was serving an arrest warrant at a home in Hilltop, where Cheever and others were making meth. During his jury trail, Cheever’s lawyers relied on a voluntary intoxication defense, arguing that Cheever’s use of meth prevented him from forming intent to kill Samuels. Lee Evans, dean of the school of pharmacy at Auburn University, testified for the defense that Cheever was too high on meth to make sound decisions the night of the shooting. That defense prompted a federal judge to order a mental examination for Cheever. The examination was conducted by New York University forensic psychiatrist Michael Welnerm, who testified for the prosecution that Cheever knew what he was doing when he shot Samuels. Cheever’s appeal centers on whether a criminal defendant waives his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination by claiming a defense that requires a court-ordered mental exam.

WASHINGTON — The question seems simple, but shedding light on the answer was worth a Nobel Prize for three American economists: How do we know how much an item is worth? Eugene F. Fama and Lars Peter Hansen of the University of Chicago and Robert J. Shiller of Yale University spent decades working on that problem, separately pioneering two competing views on finance that have strongly influenced the way people save and invest as well as major issues in public policy. Fama, 74, spent a fivedecade career at Chicago demonstrating how well free markets can determine the value of stocks, bonds and other assets. His work led to the now widely held insight that investors should put their money into broad baskets of stocks and not try to pick individual winners

If markets are fundamentally rational and efficient, then most government efforts to intervene in the economy

Patrol said in a news release that breeding season peaks in midNovember. The increase in crashes during breeding season is partially the result of deer being more active and paying less attention to hazards such as vehicles. Fall also is the time when many deer move to new locations as crops are harvested, said Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism biologist Lloyd Fox. In 2012, nearly 8,700 traffic crashes involved deer, said Kansas Department of Transportation spokesman Steve Swartz. The crashes left two people dead and 322 were injured. Experts said motorists should be particularly cautious at dawn and dusk when deer are more likely to be on the move and traffic is the heaviest. Heed deer crossing signs and reduce speed near wooded areas, green spaces such as parks and near water sources, the release said. When one of the animals is seen, slow down, use bright lights and don’t swerve to avoid hitting a deer. Experts also urge motorists to remember that the animals seldom travel alone so spotting one deer means more are likely nearby. Deer crashes occur across the state but are the most prevalent in counties with high traffic volume. Johnson County recorded the most crashes with 304, followed by Sedgwick County with 293, and Reno County with 237, the release said.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

House intransigence could ruin U.S. and world economies By the time this goes to print, perhaps the U.S. Congress will have agreed to pay its debts and fund its government. Fingers are crossed saner heads have prevailed. If not, the United States is poised to take world finance over the cliff. It all began just weeks ago when House Republicans demanded the Affordable Care Act be stripped of its funding if they were to vote to fund the federal government. As time passed, the country’s debt limit came into play with Republicans equally intransigent. Today, the country is just two days away from denying the U.S. treasury the ability to borrow money for expenditures already authorized by Congress, an act which has global markets fearful of plunging the world into a recession every bit as bad as 2008, if not worse. On Oct. 1, the furloughs began. At first they seemed symbolic. Now, they are diabolic. People are unable to cash support checks, mothers and children are going without food staples through the federal Women, Infants and Children support program, and federal employees still are without work or pay. To date, House Republicans have not budged in their demands to extract concessions in return for bringing the country from the brink of disaster, though their conditions change as frequently as the winds. Now, in recognition of their preposterous demands on Obamacare, a majority of Republicans favor a very pro-business agenda that includes more tax cuts, relaxation of environmental regulations and a more rigorous testing for those applying for Medicare benefits. And they call this compromise, for what should not have been negotiable in

the first place. Speaker of the House John Boehner still has not called for a vote to pass a strings-free resolution to fund the government or to raise the debt ceiling. Word has it, a meeting of minds between House Democrats and moderate Republicans would pass the measures, putting Boehner’s position as leader in jeopardy by bloodthirsty conservatives. THIS EXTORTION style of politics has plunged the Republican Party to its nadir. Even GOP conservatives are no longer united as a front. By midweek, Charles and David Koch, of Wichita’s powerful Koch Industries, wrote to congressional leaders saying they did not favor the government shutdown and especially were fearful of not extending the country’s debt ceiling. Though the Koch brothers love to rant about the excesses of big government, their businesses are very dependent on its operation. Truth is, the Tea Party and its ilk are not a grass roots movement. Rather, they represent an extreme fringe that gets a disproportionate amount of publicity. World leaders look aghast as U.S. politicians take this political standoff to a voluntary default on our debts and plunge world markets into chaos. Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, said people are “bemused, confused, but not amused,” by the turn of events. Republicans should shove their theatrics for another day — if ever. Speaker Boehner should call for votes for a resolution to fund the government and to extend the debt limit. Posthaste. — Susan Lynn

Letter to the editor To the editor,

Recently, I had the misfortune to awaken quite ill. My wife called 911, and my misfortune ceased. The EMTs and my wife got me to the hospital’s ER here in Iola. The ER staff diagnosed me with pneumonia, and admitted me to the hospital. (A totally new experience — I have lived 46 years in the community and have had only outpatient care.) My five days in the “old” hospital were quite a revelation. I cannot remember ever seeing a team of individuals work so well together. When a job was necessary, it seemed as if they all pitched in and

made sure the task was done. Every one, and I mean every one, was infected with this “can-do-spirit.” I dare not name names for fear of missing one of the important care-givers at “old” ACH. Imagine what this caring, efficient staff can do in the new facility. The results will be phenomenal and Allen County will have a super health-care organization. Thank you to all for your efforts to get me on my feet again and thank you for your efforts to make Allen County Regional Hospital an outstanding medical facility. Raymond Houser Iola, Kan.

Fix obstructions to world trade By JOHN SCHLAGECK Kansas Farm Bureau

U.S. agriculture depends on world trade for its continued viability. More than $141 billion in agricultural goods were exported last year. Still U.S. port facilities and waterway infrastructures are decades behind international competitors due to lack of funding. “Three things continue to obstruct U.S. agricultural exports that could be delivered to all regions of the world, especially the rapidly growing Asian markets,” says Steve Baccus, an Ottawa County grain farmer who serves as Kansas Farm Bureau president. “This includes too many rules, regulations and a lack of investment in export facilities by Washington; the lack of cooperation between countries pertaining to international trade and regulations and trade requirements imposed by individual countries on one another.” During the last two years Baccus has served as chair of the American Farm Bureau Federation’s trade advisory committee. Throughout this time this committee has traveled to countries, port facilities and waterways around the world to identify the many impediments to U.S. exports. During these travels they’ve also visited with food producers and seen crops first hand. Illustrating his point about the need to upgrade and improve U.S. port infrastructures, Baccus used the example of Singapore, the largest port in the world. This facility was built by its government and one private businessman. “In Singapore the cranes load and unload ships with one individual sitting in a computer booth two miles away,” Baccus said. “No union labor, no union guy crawling up and operating each (individual) crane each shift, each day.” Yet, in this port facility half way around the world, a loaded ship leaves the port of Singapore every 12 minutes, Bac-

U.S. port facilities and waterway infrastructures are decades behind international competitors due to lack of funding.

If this investor has the resources to build the port in Singapore, he probably has the resources to build in Tijuana, Baccus said. If he has the resources to build these ports, he has the resources to build the infrastructure to move the goods from Tijuana to the U.S. border. “What happens to West Coast ports if he builds a port like Singapore in Tijuana?” Baccus asks. “He’ll cause major problems all along the West Coast.” And if this potential nightmare with Mexico isn’t enough, Baccus witnessed another real challenge facing the United States and its agricultural exports. During a recent trip to the Pacific Northwest, the Ottawa County grain farmer visited with several California fruit and vegetables growers. These food producers don’t have enough labor to harvest their valuable crops. “We talked to a producer who grows string beans and garlic,” Baccus said. “He didn’t have enough labor to harvest both fields so he had to choose between the crops. This grower decided to mow down his string beans so he would have the labor to harvest his garlic. These beans cost him between $2,000-3,000 an acre to plant.” Another California grower was forced to leave 20 acres of vegetables in the field to rot, Baccus said. This crop could have yielded him nearly $8 million.

They’ll work for $10, $12 or $15 an hour and send their money back to Mexico to support their families. They’re not interested in staying here, Baccus said. Most don’t want to be U.S. citizens. They’re willing to pay taxes. They want to be legal immigrants. They’re willing to do whatever it takes to work here. “It’s a real shame we cannot design an immigration program to fix this situation,” Baccus said. “If we don’t get this job done and our U.S. Congress fails, we’re going to see all the fruit and vegetables grown south of the border.” If that happens what could happen to food safety and the safeguards ensured by our highly regulated food industry? How much control will this country have with the food produced in Mexico? Zero? John Schlageck is a leading commentator on agriculture and rural Kansas.

Read with children, not to them Research has found that reading with young children can make a positive impact on the child’s future and their family. Bradford Wiles is an assistant professor and extension specialist in early childhood development at Kansas State University. His current research is focused on emergent literacy and the effect of parents reading with their children ages three to five years old. Emergent literacy is a term used to explain a child’s knowledge of reading and writing skills before they learn how to read and write words. “Children start learning to read long before they can ever say words or form sentences,� said Wiles. “My focus is on helping parents read with their children and extending what happens when you read with them and they become engaged in the story.� The developmental process known as emergent literacy begins at birth and continues through the preschool and kindergarten years. This time in children’s lives is critical for learning important pre-literacy skills. With support

Then they go to the supermarket and the 4 year old is pointing and saying, “Look, there’s a zucchini.� The child cannot read the sign that says zucchini but knows what it is because they read the book about gardens. During this developmental stage where children are naming things, a child’s vocabulary can jump from a few hundred words to a few thousand words. The more exposure they’ve had through books and print materials, the more they can name things and understand.  Early experiences with words form the foundation for future learning. Reading with a child is one of the most important ways to prepare that child for success in school and in life.

Odd animal behavior could be rabies So far in 2013, 50 cases of animal rabies have been found in Kansas. Rabies is a fatal viral brain disease occurring in both animals and humans. In 2013, 906 samples have been submitted by Kansas veterinarians for rabies analysis. Of the positive samples, skunks (66 percent) made up the largest percentage of positives. Cattle and bats were the second and third most common positive species (8 percent each); with dogs the next most commonly diagnosed species. Other species found to be rabies positive in Kansas in 2013 included a donkey, a horse, a llama, a fox, and two cats. Before 1980 most animal rabies cases occurred in domestic animals. In 2010, according to the Center for Disease Control, 92 percent of all diagnosed rabies cases occurring in the U.S. occurred in wild animals, not domestic animals. The reduction in the number of domesticanimal cases is directly related to the common use and effectiveness of

Delta George Extension Agent for Agriculture

the currently available rabies vaccines. Nationwide, raccoons are the most frequently reported rabid animal, but in Kansas most rabies cases are from skunks. Rabies is typically transmitted through a bite that contains saliva. Animals or humans can also contract the disease if saliva from an infected animal contaminates an existing open wound. Infection can also occur if animals or humans come in contact with central nervous tissues (brain/spinal cord) from an infected animal. Contact with blood, feces or urine is not considered a risk of exposure. There are two major types of rabies in domestic animals: The “furious� form, where animals act extremely anxious and dangerous,

and the “dumb� form where the animal acts depressed. Animals displaying the furious type, act very aggressive and agitated toward humans, other animals, and inanimate objects. Animals with the dumb form are typically anorexic and more timid than normal. In all species, rabies can mimic other diseases such as lameness, choking, colic, and difficulty swallowing, standing or walking. The time period from when an animal is infected with the virus to when clinical signs occur (incubation period), can range from 5 to 51 days. An infected bite on the face or head will result in a much shorter incubation period compared to a bite that occurs on the lower leg. Dogs, cats, and ferrets can shed the virus for up to 10 days before clinical signs become apparent. Any animal that acts abnormally should be considered to be possibly rabid. These animals should not be handled and a veterinarian should be called

to conduct an examination. It is very important that animal owners not come in contact with a rabies-suspect animal’s saliva. Although there are many diseases that can look like rabies (e.g.

Any animal that acts abnormally should be considered to be possibly rabid.

distemper in dogs, West Nile and encephalitis in horses and donkeys, brain abscesses and low blood magnesium in cattle), anytime an owner notices a change in behavior of one of the animals in their care, rabies must be on the list of diseases to consider. If a human is bitten by an animal suspected of being rabid, the wound should be washed with soap and water and a medical doctor called. Exposure by a human to rabies virus contaminated saliva or central

nervous system tissue is not considered to be a medical emergency but a medical urgency. The only way to determine if an animal is rabid is for the brain tissue to be examined by a qualified animal diagnostic laboratory. At the laboratory, a test will be performed that allows the laboratory specialist to observe the virus within the brain tissue. This test is extremely accurate and is completed very quickly. Because rabies is always fatal, the best protection against the disease is to make sure your dogs and cats are current on their rabies vaccinations. Your veterinarian can set up a rabies vaccination program to assure your pets stay healthy. In areas where rabies is very common, cattle and horses can also be vaccinated. In states where wildlife rabies is a very great concern, oral rabies vaccination baits are routinely dropped into remote areas to vaccinate wild animals, especially raccoons.

Burris and Darrel Catron will meet with Koehn and bring a proposal to the board. Iola High School principal, Stacey Fager, spoke to the board about changing credit options for Crossroad Alternative School students. Currently Iola High School students and Crossroads students are required to complete 28 credit hours. Depending on the situation of the student they could follow a 21-credit path. “It could be where a student transfers in from another school and they have fewer credits,� Fager said. The 21-credit path helps give students a way to earn a diploma instead of dropping out. Those who take the 21-credit path will not receive an Iola High School diploma. Instead, they will receive a State of Kansas diploma. They also will not be included in school activities or allowed to

ies have not seen any return to their funding. Carswell is a member of the Governmental Affairs Committee, which lobbies in support of Kansas libraries in the state legislature. “Instead of restoring it (the funding), the legislature has cut it further,� he said. “The state library itself has been weakened.� Carswell said the state library supported education and training for librarians and library directors in the past, and now that role falls upon the seven regional library systems. “There has been a void in training for, in particular, new library directors,� he said. In addition, he said the state library used to publish the Kansas Public Library Handbook. Now, that burden falls upon the regional systems as well. “The system has had to take up the slack,� Carswell said.

He received his master’s degree in library sciences from Emporia State University in 1983. The recognition of Carswell’s work represents a long list of accomplishments since he entered into the Kansas library system 21 years ago. Most recently, Carswell’s successes have come in the face of adversity. “It’s a very huge uphill battle,� Carswell said of the state of libraries in Kansas. He said state funding has been cut nearly in half since the recession swept across the country in 2008. Even after the economy rebounded, he said the librar-

DESPITE THE cuts,

Carswell and the other regional directors, have been hard at work looking to improve the status of the state’s libraries. Most libraries in the southeast Kansas system have converted to an automated circulation system, which provides increased connectivity between area libraries. The support doesn’t stop there. Carswell said a new emphasis has been put on smaller library systems. The Association for Rural and Small Libraries has a conference in Omaha, Neb., every year, and he has helped organize a bus to take small library directors to the event. “It’s much more focused on small libraries,� he said, compared to the larger conferences. “So many of our branches fall into that category.�

Wellsville JV tops Mustangs

WELLSVILLE — Iola High’s junior varsity struggled offensively in the wind and rain Monday, falling to host Wellsville High, 28-0. “As an offensive unit, we just need to do a better job of knowing our assignments and executing the play by making blocks, running where we are supposed to go, and catching passes,” JV head coach Dana Daugharthy said. “We just could not get into rhythm all game. “Defensively, we played pretty well last night, especially considering the fact the defense was on the field for a large portion of the game,” he continued. “It was probably one of our best tackling games that we have had all season. If we take away a couple of plays where our defense had some mental lapses, then we are right in that game.” Daugharthy noted Iola’s freshmen scrimmaged against many of the same Wellsville players Thursday, and fell 52-16. Statistics from Monday’s loss were unavailable. The junior varsity hosts Chanute Monday.

Iola High’s junior varsity volleyball team took visiting Burlington High to the brink Thursday before falling in a fifth-set tiebreaker Monday evening. Despite the loss, head coach Lori Oestreicher was encouraged. “We played well,” she said. Iola defeated Burlington in the first set, 25-21, before the Wildcats rebounded to take sets 2 and 3, 25-14, 25-19. The squads were evenly matched throughout the fourth set before Iola prevailed, 25-23, to set up the tiebreaker. Burlington got the early jump and won the tiebreaker, 15-8. Several Fillies players had strong performances. Shelby Smith delivered six kills, followed by Taylor Sell with three and Katie Shields with two. Taylor Heslop and Cassie See IHS | Page B2

HAYS — Allen Community College’s cross country squads didn’t run poorly Saturday morning, their head coach noted. “But we didn’t run well, either,” said Vince DeGrado. As a result both Allen men’s and women’s teams finished behind other Region VI schools at Saturday’s Fort Hays State Tiger Open. The Red Devil men finished seventh overall, averaging 25 minutes, 43 seconds for their 8k run. The time was notably slower than Region VI rival Colby’s average of 25:17. Colby finished fourth among the men’s teams. “I guess if there’s a silver lining, it’s that this occurred now and not in two weeks,” DeGrado said. The women, spearheaded by Denae McGee’s school record 18:41.21 in her 5k run, finished 15th — behind Region VI schools See ACC | Page B2

Coaches: Big 12 race ‘wide open’ By STEPHEN HAWKINS The Associated Press

There are some early surprises in the Big 12 Conference, which is still setting up as the expected wide-open race. The league’s only undefeated teams are 12th-ranked Baylor (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) and No. 16 Texas Tech (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) with new coach and former quarterback Kliff Kingsbury. And Texas, after going 1-2 in nonconference games with big losses to BYU and Mississippi, is 3-0 in the Big 12 after a season-shifting victory over Oklahoma last weekend in the Red River Rivalry that the Sooners had dominated recently. “We’re so fortunate to be in a conference,” Longhorns coach Mack Brown said. “Teams that are independent, after they have some problems early don’t have a chance to rebound and still save their season and have something to play for.” See BIG 12 | Page B2

Hutchinson, Butler County and Dodge City. The Red Devil men were paced by Brandon Bernal, who finished 25th overall at 25:13.2, and Dallas Snider in 30th at 25:22.0. The pace for the Red Devil runners was similar to what Allen experienced at the Region VI and Jayhawk Conference Meet a year ago, DeGrado said. “We started out too quickly, but we faded down the stretch, and other teams just kept up the pressure and passed us,” he said. “That’s what Colby did Saturday. They didn’t just beat us, they took it to us.” The experience should give Allen’s runners plenty of impetus to regroup and focus on improvement at the regional meet Oct. 28 in Hutchinson. “We just need to get better,” he said.

overall, while Wendland was 135 for 20th. More importantly, Buchanan and Wendland finished sixth and seventh, respectively, among golfers from nonstate qualifying teams. The top five golfers from non-qualifying teams also advance to state. “It was a tough day, being cold and rainy,” Barnes said. “But it was that way for everyone, we just did not adapt as well to the conditions as others did.” MaKayla Jones shot a 166, for 27th overall, while Jaylie Weseloh shot a 197 for 29th. The Wildcats’ 629 placed them fifth. Desiree Nelson of Caney shot a 96 to win the tournament. Caney also had the best team score, 397.

Delich had four and two assists, respectively. Shields had six aces, followed by Heslop with four. Joie Whitney led Iola with 35 digs, followed by Delich with 33. Smith and Jessica Oakley each had two solo blocks. The junior varsity joins Iola’s varsity and ninth-graders for matches todat at Central Heights.

Dodgers topple Cards, 3-0, in NLCS LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hyun-Jin Ryu outpitched Adam Wainwright with seven innings of three-hit ball, Adrian Gonzalez’s RBI double ended a 1-for-17 drought for the Dodgers with runners in scoring position, and Los Angeles got back into the NL championship series with a 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez also had run-scoring hits for the Dodgers, who trail the best-of-seven series 2-1. Game 4 is today at Dodger Stadium, followed by Game 5 on Wednesday. Retired Dodgers manager Tom Lasorda, whose 1988 team won the franchise’s last World Series title in 1988, stood up and waved his white rally towel in the eighth to raucous applause. Los Angeles got Ramirez and center fielder Andre Ethier back in the lineup after both proved in batting practice they were healthy enough to play. Ramirez wore a lightweight flak jacket to protect his broken left rib — having been hit by a pitch from Joe Kelly in Game 1 — while Ethier has been bothered by shin splints. Ramirez singled his first time up off Wainwright and then helped the Dodgers extend their lead to 3-0 in the eighth. Ramirez hit a soft single off Seth Maness over the head of new second baseman Kolten Wong to score Carl Crawford. The speedy Crawford, on second base after a one-out single, rounded third and never stopped running when the

throw from the outfield went to second base. On a close play at the plate, Crawford barely beat the tag by catcher Yadier Molina. Ryu and Wainwright were nearly even through the first three scoreless innings, with Wainwright giving up one hit. Ryu, who struggled in his first career postseason start in the division series against Atlanta, retired 12 of his first 13 batters, yielding only a walk. Ryu was much improved after lasting just three innings as the first South Korean pitcher to start a playoff game last week against Atlanta. He allowed four runs on six hits for a no-decision in a game the Dodgers won. The left-hander didn’t allow a Cardinals runner past second base. David Freese’s single to right leading off the fifth was their first hit of the game. Freese was replaced by a pinch-runner in the fifth because of tightness in his right calf. He is day to day. Ryu struck out four and walked one.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly came out to the mound accompanied by a translator with two outs in the seventh. Ryu responded by striking out Matt Adams to end the inning as catcher A.J. Ellis pumped his right arm in the air. Fans waved South Korean flags in support of Ryu.

Puig’s RBI triple in the fourth snapped an 0-for-11 skid in the series. After the first two games in St. Louis were decided by one run, the Dodgers got to Wainwright in the fourth, taking a 2-0 lead. Gonzalez’s double down the right-field line scored Mark Ellis, who doubled leading off. With two outs, Puig tripled off the wall in right, scoring Gonzalez. Puig had struck out seven times before getting his first hit against the Cardinals. He raised his arms and watched the ball sail toward right before starting to charge harder when he realized it wasn’t going to be a home run. He ran into third base and clapped his hands before raising them again as the sellout crowd of 53,940 cheered.

any given day,� coach Bill Snyder said. “I think that’s proving out right now.� When Big 12 coaches submitted their preseason ballots back in July, six different teams got first-place votes. Texas Tech wasn’t one of them, and was picked to finish seventh. “I think it’s the same way if we had looked at it in August, you look at it and say it’s a wide-open race,� Baylor coach Art Briles said during the weekly teleconference with Big 12 coaches. “Nothing has changed as we’re into October. I don’t think it’s a surprise to anybody.�

With eight weeks left in the regular season, the top five teams in the league standings still have to play each other, except for that 36-20 win by Texas (4-2) over the 18th-ranked Sooners (51, 2-1). “Our league is exciting this year because there is not ‘A’ team that everybody can pick,� Brown said. “It’s already changed two or three times.� Meanwhile, defending Big 12 champion Kansas State is 0-3 in conference play going into an open date. “It’s a strong belief of ours that anybody can defeat anyone else on

MVJH squad stays unbeaten in tournament ST. PAUL — Even with a case of the jitters, Marmaton Valley Junior High’s eighth-graders still managed to maintain their perfect record Monday. The Wildcats went 3-0 in a tournament hosted by St. Paul, defeating Chetopa, 25-20, 25-16, and Thayer, 25-20, 25-17, to set up a championship match against Oswego. Marmaton Valley secured the title with its 25-15, 27-25 victory. The victories put the Wildcats’ record at 13-0 on the season. “The girls came through at the end, although we never really played our type of game,� coach Brenda Mills said. “They seemed

to be nervous because of their record.� Trinitee Gutierrez led the way for Marmaton Valley, followed by MaKayla Brooks, 21, Megan Ensminger, 29, Shayla Brooks, 14, Paige Becker, 11, and Clara Boyd, eight. “Clara had some great serves and really did a nice job of saving a few digs,� Mills said. “Paige and Trinitee put up some good shots, and Megan and the twins set each other up very well. Shelby Yoho and Emily Smart made some good passes and sets to help contribute to the win.� Marmaton Valley ends its season Thursday at Crest.

“Our league is exciting this year because there is not ‘A’ team that everybody can pick. It’s already changed two or three times.� — Texas head coach Mack Brown

Except maybe the early order of the teams. Baylor, which averaged more than 70 points is first four games, survived its first road test. They Bears won 35-25 Saturday at Kansas State, which was intent of avenging the lopsided loss from last season when the Wildcats got to Waco as the No. 1 team in the BCS standings. No. 21 Oklahoma State (4-1, 1-1) was the preseason favorite by the coaches to win the league, just ahead of the Sooners. The Cowboys had an early loss at West Virginia (3-3, 1-2), which has alternated wins and losses all season. “There’s a lot of parity in this league. I’ve said this for a number of years now,� Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. “It’s increasing each season.� Consider that in the past seven years, only Texas in 2009 went undefeated in Big 12 play, and that was on the way

to playing in the BCS national championship game. Kansas State and Oklahoma State shared the league title with one Big 12 loss last year, when six other teams were either 5-4 or 4-5 in league play. The Cowboys, coming off an open date, host TCU (3-3, 1-2) on Saturday. Texas doesn’t play this week before going on the road to play the Longhorns. TCU coach Gary Patterson would prefer the Big 12 play its conference games in consecutive weeks without open dates. “I think it’s an unfair advantage when people have off weeks,� Patterson said. “The thing I’d change about what we do in the league, once we get into it, we play, we don’t have any off weeks. .. So it’s all even.� Patterson, who will get an extra week to prepare for Baylor in late November, knows television helps dictate the schedule. And there could be some high drama with late-season games having potential Big 12 championship implications. While there are a lot of games left before then, Texas Tech plays at Texas on Thanksgiving night. The regular season ends the first Saturday in December with the Longhorns at Baylor, and Oklahoma going to Oklahoma State. The Sooners have to quickly get over the Red River Rivalry loss. They are at Kansas on Saturday before games against Texas Tech and Baylor. “Our season, win or lose through (the Texas) game, isn’t the end-all,� Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. “We always play (Texas) about the same time every year so it’s the same message every year. We’ve got to keep playing, keep trying to get better and keep pushing each week to try to make improvements.�

Crime results in 7-year prison term By ERIN MATTHEWS Salina Journal

A 72-year-old Minneapolis man was sentenced Monday to more than seven years in prison in connection with the shootings of his granddaughter, whom he had adopted, and her husband. Johnnie R. Kilpatrick, who pleaded no contest in August to two counts of aggravated battery, originally had been charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder in connection with the shootings, which occurred in the early morning hours of Nov. 3, 2012, at the Iron Avenue apartment of his granddaughter, Emily Ramos-Powell. Saline County District Court Judge Patrick Thompson said that although injuries to RamosPowell and Jesse Powell were serious, the incident “could have ended more tragically.” He ordered Kilpatrick, who had no previous criminal record, to serve seven years and two months in prison, with three years of postrelease supervision. Kilpatrick was ordered to pay $193 in court costs, a $200 DNA testing fee and a $400 Kansas Bureau of Investigation lab fee. A hearing on repay-

ment of $4,783 to the Crime Victims Compensation Fund as restitution for medical expenses was set for 10:30 a.m. Nov. 18. A c cording to an arrest affidavit that b e c a m e Kilpatrick public after sentencing, Kilpatrick arrived unexpectedly at Ramos-Powell’s apartment at about 1 a.m. Nov. 3 after arguing with her about whether her 4-yearold son should return to live with her or stay with his great-grandparents. The affidavit indicated that both Ramos-Powell and Powell told police that Kilpatrick removed a .22-caliber revolver from his jacket pocket and shot at Ramos-Powell, striking her ear and the left side of her face. Powell attempted to disarm Kilpatrick and was shot twice in the chest. Ramos-Powell was shot again in the chest as she attempted to leave the apartment. Kilpatrick was subdued during a struggle with Powell and another resident of the apartment complex, William S./Bamn Miller IV, who held Kilpatrick in a headlock until police arrived.

Kansas briefs State school board to review snack rules TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas State Board of Education is taking a look at the possible effects of new federal rules aimed at ensuring public schools provide healthy snacks to students. The agenda for the board’s meeting today includes a presentation about standards announced this summer by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Starting in July 2014, the USDA will require that all food sold in schools participating in the National School Lunch Program meets healthy snack requirements. The rules include items sold in vending machines, but exempt sports concession sales and events such as bake sales. The USDA has said it’s trying to fight childhood obesity and related health problems. But its standards on school lunches have been criticized as being too strict and resulting in meals that kids won’t eat.

Rebuilt stretch of I-70 opens in NW Kansas GOODLAND, Kan. (AP) — A three-year project to improve a stretch of Interstate 70 in far northwest Kansas has been completed. The Kansas Department of Transportation marked the milestone with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday at

the Travel Information Center west of Goodland. Crews rebuilt 12 miles of eastbound and westbound lanes of I-70 from the Colorado border east into Kansas. The $48 million project was funded by a TWORKS, a transportation program approved by the Kansas Legislature in 2010 to create jobs and preserve highway infrastructure.

Kansas Guard to help rebuild Colo. highways TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — About 75 engineers from the Kansas National Guard are heading to Colorado this week to help rebuild highways damaged by massive flooding. The Kansans expect to leave for Boulder on Wednesday and remain in Colorado for 18 days. The units supplying Kansas Guard members include the 891st Engineer Battalion based in Iola, the 226th Engineer Company from Augusta and the 242nd Engineer Company of Coffeyville. Also participating are members of the 772nd Engineer Company based in Pittsburg, the 190th Air Refueling Wing Civil Engineering Squadron from Topeka and the 184th Intelligence Wing Civil Engineering Squadron in Wichita. The Kansas National Guard has sent personnel to other states in past years to battle forest fires and help with hurricane recovery.

Parking habit not harmful, but dumb Dear Tom and Ray: I met my fiance in a car accident three years ago. I bumped into his car, and the rest is history. However, as luck would have it, the only time we argue is when it comes to driving and car care. He drives a stick-shift Mazda Miata, and I drive an automatic 2010 Nissan Altima. So there are a lot of features in my car that he had to get used to (e.g., keyless ignition). The one thing that always gets me is that he often turns off the engine without shifting back into park. I tell him that it damages the car, and he says no it doesn’t. I find that hard to believe, because the car won’t start if the gear lever is not in park. Can you knock some sense into my man? I love him to death, but not his car/driving philosophy.

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi Thank you. — Michelle Ray: Well, the act of turning off the engine while the car is still in drive doesn’t hurt anything, other than the chances that you’re going to go with him to the altar. Neither the transmission nor the engine care. Tom: But the reason he should break himself of this habit is because it’s easy to then forget to actually put it in park. Ray: Maybe you’ve done this yourself at some point? You pull up somewhere, you’re a little distracted, so you turn off the ignition and take your foot off the brake.

Then in your peripheral vision you notice that the car next to you is moving. And suddenly it occurs to you: It’s not the other car, it’s me! Tom: Of course, it would be worse if you had gotten out of the car before it started to roll away. Luckily, the keys won’t come out of the ignition unless the car is in park. So that gives you one more signal that something’s wrong (why won’t my key come out? Oh, right. Because I didn’t put the car in park, and my car is rolling into a UPS truck!). Ray: But in a car like yours, Michelle, with keyless ignition (where you just need to have the key in your pocket, and the car recognizes it electronically when you get in the car), it’s one

B5

step easier to leave the car in drive, open the door, get out and walk away. Tom: Now, that presupposes that you’d somehow miss the warning chime that would sound when you opened the door with the car in gear. But remember, you’ve already tried to turn off the car without putting it in park, so we know you’re distracted. Ray: So, while it’s not mechanically harmful, Michelle, it could lead to a stupid mistake. So remind him that you’re getting married soon. And tell him that means that if he does ever leave the car in drive and lets your car roll into a fetid, alligator-infested swamp, there are a lot of years ahead for him to never live it down. Good luck.

When to stop seeing a gynecologist Dear Dr. Roach: Two years ago, at age 90, my gynecologist told me that I did not need to see him anymore because of my age. When I mentioned this to my daughter, she became outraged, and said that I need to continue my mammograms and visits to the doctor. What is your opinion? —I.W. Answer: This is actually three questions in one,

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health and none of them is easy. How long do you “need” to continue Pap smears and mammograms, and do you need to keep seeing your gynecologist?

The Pap smear question actually is the easiest, since there is very good evidence that a woman who has had normal Pap smears regularly until age 65 is very unlikely to get cervical cancer. This does not apply to anyone with a history of cancer. When to stop mammograms is controversial. I feel that they can contin-

ue in healthy women indefinitely, but especially in the presence of some other serious disease, a woman over 75 could choose to stop. I still recommend a regular visit with the gynecologist. Even if a mammogram or Pap smear isn’t being done, the gynecologist can discuss other concerns and do an exam.

Lawmaker questions Wichita agencies’ move Shop Ottawa Wed 9-7pm, Weekdays 9-6pm, Sat 9-5pm! TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A lawmaker is raising questions about plans to move several state agencies out of a municipal building in Wichita, even though city officials offered to remodel and reduce the rent. Rep. Jim Ward said he’s unsatisfied with the reasons state officials have given for planning to move out of the Finney State Office Building next year, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported. The Wichita Democrat noted that the city of Wichita offered to drop their rent from $11 per square foot to about $6 per square foot if they renew their lease. “It’s way cheaper than anything these nine agencies will get anywhere in the city of Wichita or commercial office space,” Ward said.

Chuck Knapp, a spokesman for the Department of Administration, which handles state agency leases, said agencies needs have changed and that cost was “not a determining factor.” About 700 state employees currently work in the Finney State Office Building, with the largest number employed by the Department of Children and Families. The agency has said that in the past, clients dropped off applications and then waited as long as a month to hear whether they were eligible for services. Now, clients may have to wait a couple of hours to be seen, but 75 percent of them learn the same day if they qualify for benefits.
