Allen County Regional Hospital: A NEW ERA FOR HEALTH CARE By SUSAN LYNN firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday’s stiff north wind didn’t deter a hearty crowd from witnessing the morning’s dedication ceremonies for the new Allen County Regional Hospital. U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran credited the citizens of Allen County for being an “inspiration to Congress,” in their cooperation in supporting the new facility. “Something tells me politics didn’t come into play. It didn’t matter who was a Republican or Democrat. Instead, the public good was your focus. “This hospital is not only for current residents, but for generations to come. People you will never see will benefit from the decisions you have made today,” Moran said. “Access to affordable health care is the most important survival tool for a community,” Moran said. “Every rural community is struggling to stay alive. The future of Allen County is secured by what you have done today.” See HOSPITAL | Page A7

Homicide suspect Fond memories the basis for dies in shootout children’s book
Man was sought for double slaying in Eureka
EUREKA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities are investigating the death of a man wanted in connection with two slayings who was killed in a shooting here with authorities. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said in a written statement that Kevin Robert Welsh, 35, Toronto, was fatally wounded Wednesday night in Eureka, a town of about 2,600 residents 50 miles west of Iola. Authorities had been searching for Welsh since his ex-girlfriend, 26-year-old Catherine Scheff, was seriously injured and her mother, Sheila Kriesel, 52, and her 54-year-old stepfather, Keith Kriesel, were killed Oct. 2 in Greenwood County near Eureka. Before the shootings, Welsh had been free on

$50,000 bond in connection with an Aug. 23 kidnapping case. The KBI said a law enforcement officer involved in the manhunt noticed the entrance to an unoccupied structure had been tampered with since the last time it was checked. After obtaining consent from the owner to search the building, KBI agents began clearing the structure and encountered Welsh. The KBI said initial reports indicate that KBI agents shot Welsh after he pointed a handgun at them. John Dunn Sr. told The Wichita Eagle he was lying in bed watching TV when he heard about 10 or 15 shots fired in a matter of seconds. See SHOOUTOUT | Page A5
Quote of the day Vol. 115, No.251
Iola brings back a lot of great childhood memories for author Amy Thomas. She recalls visiting Sutherland farms, watching the city band play in the square and spending time with her grandparents, Kendall and Shirley Ashford. Their quaint blue home on South Washington Avenue in Iola is the setting of Thomas’ debut children’s novel, “The Abominog: The Adventures of Kirk and David.” The novel is based on a bedtime story her father, David Ashford, used to tell her as a child. Ashford grew up in Iola and attended Iola High School, graduating in 1974. He went to Allen Community College where he met Thomas’ mother. “My dad is a big music fan and I loved looking at all of his albums as a kid,” Thomas said. “There was this one album that always scared me, ‘Abominog’ by Uriah Heep. Dad created this story about See BOOK | Page A7
Amy Thomas based her newest children’s novel on her fond memories of her time visiting Iola as a child. She currently lives in Virginia. COURTESY PHOTO

Rasa finds the good in rural Kansas
All Choices Available At Bolling’s In Iola. Some Items Not Available At Moran Locker. For everyone’s benefit, we urge you to please call ahead for your bundles and/or large and special orders. This reduces wait time for you and ensures that anything you want will be in stock.

RASA HAS been a cycling enthusiast for about 10 years. He grew up on a farm outside of Lexington, Mo., before moving to Kansas City to attend DeVry University. Now, he builds websites independently, one of which is Kansas Cyclist, a cycling database and resource for enthusiasts in Kansas. Cycling was something that Rasa took into consideration when selecting a new home — he and his wife are moving from a rural area in Johnson County, between Olathe and Spring Hill — but it wasn’t the only consideration. “It’s a less hectic lifestyle and a place where we can walk,” he said of living in Iola. Where they lived prior, he and his wife were five miles from any store, what they “consider biking, not walking” distance. Also, Iola as a place isn’t a far cry from what he considers home. “In a sense it’s coming to a place sort of like home,” he said. “I’m comfortable in small towns.” But, cycling did have a major influence on his decision. The access to trails — he has ridden on the Prairie Spirit and Southwind Trails — and a new setting was enough to entice him to the area. RASA SAID he began cycling for fitness at around age 40. He lost about 25 pounds in the first two years. Now, cycling is very much a part of his lifestyle. While he said he enjoys almost any form of cycling, touring is what he spends the most time doing. Touring is a multi-day event, including spending the night at campsites. He said he rides around 5,000 miles per year as a goal, and is well on his way to match it in 2013. He said the cycling mentality has changed; people no longer see it as a viable form of transportation. “People see transportation as a car,” he said. “Within a small town, cycling is really easy.” He believes the cycling community in Kansas has plenty of room for expansion, and is always looking for it to grow. It was his motivation for starting Kansas Cyclist in the first place. “There was nothing that brought together the entire state,” he said of his online resource. “It has been very positive, people tell me it’s indispensable to them.” While it does not make as much money as his

Portland to get ideas for Kansas Cyclist, which launched in January 2008. THE RASAS are in the
process of moving. They are preparing for an estate sale on their former home, and are living in Iola parttime. They closed on a
home in late September. He said numerous things lured him to Iola, but “they got a good feeling” overall from the community. “We were charmed with Iola, it seemed to have a good civic spirit,” he said. He said he has ridden his bicycle across the area, including to the Southwind Trail opening June. “You see things differently from a bicycle,” he said. “I didn’t realize how little I knew about my area.” He said he believes Iola has the potential to become a cycling community, and he has already been on a ride with Dave Fontaine’s Thursday night riding group. It’s a budding aspect of Iola that he is looking forward to, among other things. “I have a whole new area to explore,” he said.

Colley bolsters spirits at Rotary By BOB JOHNSON firstname.lastname@example.org
Ken Colley handed out bouquets along with encouragement to Iola Rotarians Thursday. Colley is governor of Rotary District 6110, of which Iola is a member. Colley, Fort Smith, Ark., said the organization’s focus is “Engage Rotary, Change Lives,” and that a way to accomplish that was to host a Rotary exchange student. He should know, Colley and wife Lynn have hosted eight foreign students, several of whom have spent a full year in their home. The first was a Brazilian girl in 1995, and the experience was “as good for us as it was for her.” Local Rotarians are hosting a student from Taiwan, “and you all are going to be tremendously happy for having done it,” Colley said. He mentioned several goals for District 6110 this year. Support of Rotary International is at the top of the list. The benchmark in any year is for a club to provide financial support of $100 for each member, which Iola Rotarians met last year. Iola ranked 13th among 82 clubs in the
district in giving in permember comparison, Colley said. Another financial goal is for one or more members to become a Paul Harris Fellow, the requirement being contribution in a member’s name of $1,000. The Iola club has several Paul Harris Fellows. “If you contributed to Rotary International, you saved a life,” Colley said. Rotary International provides expertise and means for water wells to be constructed in Third World countries, which provides a clean source of water in areas where it previously was absent. At the beginning of Colley’s year as governor, the district had 4,680 members. He wants that to increase to 4,725 by the end of his tenure. The key, he said, is not just to bring people to meetings, but “also get them plugged into” programs, so they have ownership in a club and its activities. Colley’s enthusiasm for Rotary and its role in improving communities, foreign and domestic, bubbled over throughout this presentation. “Rotary is unlike anything else in the world,” he concluded.

Dunn said Welsh apparently had been hiding in an old tin shed about 200 feet behind his house. The KBI said Welsh was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later. The agency said a thor-

The site where Welsh was shot is in the same area where law enforcement on Monday surrounded an abandoned laundromat in their search for Welsh. The reward for information leading to Welsh’s capture had grown to $11,000.

Pflueger, a Democrat, was elected mayor of the borough about 20 miles north of Pittsburgh in 2009.

Pflueger’s opponent is Pamela Bauman, a Republican currently on borough council. Pflueger got on the ballot with 46 votes in the primary, just ahead of Bauman who tallied 43 write-in votes in the Democratic primary. Bauman easily won the Republican nomination over another candidate.

A chicken in everyone’s coop coming back around In his campaign for president in 1928, Herbert Hoover ran on the prosperity platform, promising “a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.” The Great Depression was on the heels of Hoover’s election. Hoover couldn’t deliver on the chicken, much less the car. In an interview earlier this week, Debbie and Duwayne Bearden talked about their lives as farmers and pushed the idea of city folk taking more ownership of the food they consume. The Beardens raise Angus cattle and poultry. And though they know most people have no business around 1,000-pound animals, they reckon most could handle a chicken or two. For a family, four or five chickens would lay enough eggs to keep them well fed, Duwayne said. They are easy to maintain, Debbie said, requiring no more than a coop, feed, and the daily routine of collecting the eggs. Debbie said chickens also have unique personalities, remembering her son Travis enjoying being in the coop with them. “He’d place seed along his arm up to his shoulder,” along which a hen would travel up. The Beardens collect
Susan Lynn Register editor 104 eggs a day from their brood. This winter they are expecting another “100 pullets coming on,” Duwayne said, which should bring the egg production up to 150 a day, when the molting stage is figured in. Duwayne said for those who don’t take kindly to pre-dawn crowing, the rooster is superfluous anyway, unless you want the egg fertilized. Duwayne said growing your own food helps you keep in better touch with what you eat. IN IOLA, chickens, goats and sheep are off-limits, according to Carl Slaugh, city administrator, and would require a change in city codes to allow such critters. The farm-to-table movement is changing such requirements. Lawrence and Denver, for example, allow residents to raise chickens, though they limit the size of the brood. It’s definitely food for thought.
Cars more than a ride for many A highlight of Farm-City Days each year is the car show. I readily admit to falling under the spell of vehicles of every description. This week I stopped by Jim West’s home, after noticing the door up on the shop where he was primping an old Studebaker truck for Bob Walden. West has had a love affair with cars, beginning when he and others started the Coachmen’s Car Club here in the late 1950s. He, Walden and others were in high school at the time, when it was possible to do meaningful work with a handful of tools and a little knowhow. Ignition and fuel systems were relatively simple. Nowadays, computers have taken away most at-home repairs, which is one reason car shows have become so popular. Today, it’s more middle-aged and older folks who are the real fanciers of the souped-
Kobach: demigod or demagogue? Last week Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach again placed himself and Kansas in the national spotlight and left Kansans wondering whether he is a demigod or a demagogue on state elections. Demigod refers to “one so preeminent in intellect, ability, power, beneficence, or appearance as to seem to approach the divine.” Demagogue on the other hand is defined as “a political leader who seeks to gain personal or partisan advantage by specious or extravagant claims, promises, or charges.” Last week Kobach instructed local election officials to prepare voter rolls into a two-tier structure for voting, unlike any other state in the nation. One category of Kansas voters, who sign a sworn statement of citizenship on a federal registration form, will be allowed to vote only in elections for federal offices. A second category of Kansas voters, who meet the nation’s strictest requirements for proof of citizenship as established by Kansas lawmakers on advice of Kobach, will be allowed to vote in all elections: federal, state, and local. Other Kansans seeking to register are being placed in “suspension” for not providing sufficient proof of citizenship and will be barred from voting. Kobach dismisses these citizens, now numbering more than 18,000 and growing, as “mostly casual registrants, many of whom do not intend to vote.” Kobach’s actions represent his latest episode in cleverly exploiting national inaction on immigration reform and ingeniously linking immigration to voting. He uses the historically low-profile, ministerial office of secretary of state, in combination with
his side-practice in immigration law, to gain national attention for himself and the state. For those crusading against illegal immigration, Kobach appears as demigod. He brandishes credentials as Eagle Scout, White House Fellow, and professor of constitutional law with degrees from Harvard, Yale, and Oxford. He protects the integrity of elections by championing restricted access to voting. He advises lawmakers on measures to crack down on illegal immigration and, when challenged, defends their actions in court. He sues state and national officials who he believes to be lax on immigration enforcement. He carries the crusaders’ case nationally and gains support from the Republican Party and many of its candidates. For those who advocate immigration reform and lifting unnecessary barriers to voting, Kobach appears as demagogue. He concocts the issue of widespread voter fraud to win the office of secretary of state. He fabricates stories of voting by non-citizens to promote questionable measures that restrict voting and places thousands of potential voters in suspension. He unethically uses his public office to expand his lucrative law practice. Kobach’s recent action has produced both administrative and political fallout. His two-tier voting procedure has been labeled a “nightmare” by one local election
official. Many Kansas counties already require over a hundred separate ballots, and that number will double, increasing costs and further complicating local election administration. Following up on thousands of suspended voters has already expanded local workloads and strained local budgets. This latest chapter further augments Kobach’s reputation as a Republican renegade. Republican state lawmakers have become wary of his shenanigans and quietly buried his anti-immigration initiatives that have found favor in other states. Grover Norquist, a national tax policy ally of Governor Sam Brownback, came to town last January and took a shot at Kobach, declaring “people can get attention with outrageous positions…but it’s not constructive for the country, it’s not constructive for the modern Republican Party.” While Kobach gains national fame, whether as demigod or demagogue, a political question remains: Will the state’s Republican leaders — Brownback, his legislative allies, and members of the state congressional delegation — continue to stand aside as Kobach eclipses them in the spotlight, divides Kansas Republicans, and diverts public attention to disenfranchised voters, rather than core issues in their Red State model of governance?

up, customized and brightly painted autos. Automobiles now have features that are light years ahead of my first car, a 1951 Pontiac, but except for those who have a well-padded billfold the super-charged rides of the modern era are out of range of most of us. My Pontiac wasn’t much to look at, with springs on one side broken to the point that it meandered down the road at a tilt. It burned and leaked oil to the point that when I drove into a service station and asking to have it filled with oil
and the gas checked wasn’t all that far-fetched. I bought the car for $20 and later junked it out for $20. As difficult as it is for today’s teens to believe, I didn’t have a car until my second year at Pittsburg State, when my grandfather mercifully forked over enough cash for me to buy a 1955 Ford that had seen better days. Later I purchased my first new car, a 1964 Chevelle Supersport, and truly thought I was king of the road. Beverly and I had it for a while after being married in 1965 — including a trip to Las Vegas the summer of 1966 without airconditioning — before settling into a series of “family” cars. But you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be looking closely at several entries in today’s car show that will give a nostalgic mind’s eye journey back to the 1950s and ’60s.
GOP: Must stop poking themselves in the eye At last, Americans can see several months down the road. Congress’ long-awaited deal that reopened the government and raised the debt ceiling means the country won’t keep living without a government and, worse, walk on its debts. The situation should never have gotten that extreme. Still, this newspaper is relieved seasoned senators crafted a compromise. Also important: GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas chose not to block it. Better a solution that will last until early next year than no pact at all. As the horizon becomes clearer, or simply slightly less cloudy, it is obvious that Republicans can’t keep poking themselves in the eye. Going back several elections, business Republicans thought they could saddle up with tea party conservatives. But the fissure has cracked wide open since Cruz moved to close the government with his revolt against Obamacare. First, there’s a fundamental difference between a limitedgovernment conservative and an anti-government conservative. The former believes government must do core functions right. The latter questions the fundamental need for those functions. In Texas, for example, Republicans such as House Speaker Joe Straus are asking voters to approve a constitutional amendment that would fund many of Texas’ water needs. But a small band of other Republicans question the need for such financing or believe water supplies should be entirely privatized. The party will stumble around blindly until it resolves these differences. It needs resolution sooner than later. Second, these factions offer
radically different approaches to governing. Business Republicans uphold principle but will compromise for the larger good. Tea party Republicans believe principle overrides all; better to lose on principle than to win or tie on compromise. You could see this tension daily in U.S. House Speaker John Boehner’s face. The Republican leader prefers governing by combining principles with compromise, but he was hamstrung by Cruz and crew, who believe compromise makes a leader weak. As it looks ahead, the GOP should embrace limited-government conservatism for its sake and the country’s. Tea party conservatives can light up rallies with speeches, but they can’t govern. The nation can’t move ahead without leaders who know how to bargain. WE’RE ENCOURAGED that an increasing number of business Republicans are stepping up to address this tension. The News’ Michael Lindenberger reported in Wednesday’s editions how executives in Dallas, such as Dallas Regional Chamber president Jim Oberwetter, believe the GOP needs more leaders who prefer broad solutions over narrow ideology. Similarly, national business groups are talking about fielding GOP primary candidates. They want Republicans in office who lack the death wish of no-compromise conservatives. Business Republicans can’t be timid, though. They are squaring off against those who would rather starve than win a half-loaf. And this battle has only just begun. — The Dallas Morning News

Former attorney general loses law license with allegation By JOHN MILBURN Associated Press
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â€” The Kansas Supreme Court indefinitely suspended the law license of former state Attorney General Phill Kline on Friday, following allegations of ethical misconduct during his investigation of abortion providers. The court agreed with a state disciplinary panel that Kline repeatedly misled or allowed subordinates to mislead others, including a Kansas City-area grand jury, to further his investigations. The unanimous decision came after repeated disputes between the Republican and critics of his tactics. Tom Condit, Klineâ€™s attorney, said Friday that Kline reasserted that he never intentionally lied or misled others in pursuit of his case. He and
Kline were reviewing the ruling and considering their next steps, Condit said. In 2007, Kline filed 107 criminal charges against a Planned Parenthood clinic in the Kansas City suburbs, accusing it of performing illegal abortions and falsifying records. The last of those charges were dropped in August 2012. He also pursued misdemeanor criminal charges against Dr. George Tiller because of late-term abortions performed by his Wichita clinic. The case was dismissed for jurisdictional reasons. Kline began the investigations of both providers just months into his 2003-2007 term as attorney general. The clinics resisted his attempts to get information from patientsâ€™ medical records, but eventually the courts allowed him access to edited documents.
Cat busted for weed CHISINAU, Moldova (AP) â€” A cat has been busted for smuggling pot into a prison in Moldova. Guards became suspicious about the feline, which routinely entered and left the prison through a hole in a fence, when they noticed its odd collar. On closer inspection, they found two packets of marijuana attached to it. The Department of Penitentiary Institutions said Fri-
day that someone in the village of Pruncul was using the cat as a courier to supply inmates with dope at the local prison. Whoever the human was, this wasnâ€™t a first regarding cat couriers at lockups. In June, guards caught a cat carrying cellphones and chargers taped to its belly to inmates in Penal Colony No. 1 near the city of Syktyvkar in northern Russia.
Justices said Kline committed â€œsignificant and numerousâ€? violations as an attorney while pursuing prosecutions as attorney general and district attorney in Johnson County.
zlett and others built their case against Kline by taking out-of-context snippets of his statements over six years. â€œIf this is the standard of honesty in Kansas, there are a lot of attor-

â€” Supreme Court statement
â€œKlineâ€™s inability or refusal to acknowledge or address their significance is particularly troubling in light of his service as the chief prosecuting attorney for this State and its most populous county,â€? the Supreme Court wrote. Condit maintained that state disciplinary administrator Stan Ha-
neys who are going to be taking a long vacation,â€? Condit said. â€œFact finders are human and they can be wrong. In this case they are wrong.â€? Peter Brownlie, president and CEO of Planned Parents of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, said the ruling was a vindication of the organizationâ€™s stance that Kline was on
a â€œpolitically motivated witch huntâ€? in prosecuting abortion providers. â€œIt was an excellent example of him using any means to justify the ends in his mind,â€? Brownlie said. â€œIt should give persons in elected office or not pause about using such unethical tactics.â€? Klineâ€™s supporters said the ruling was evidence of collusion between the Supreme Court and former Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, now secretary of Health and Human Services. â€œThis is just another layer of icing on the Kansas Tiller/Sebelius late-term abortion corruption cake,â€? said Mary Kay Culp, executive director of Kansans for Life. Brownlie said Sebelius had nothing to do with the ruling, adding â€œThe only person who can be blamed for todayâ€™s decision is Mr. Kline him-
self.â€? The Supreme Court said Kline could ask for his license to be reinstated after three years, but that any application would be reviewed by the court. The justices also could seek additional review by the state disciplinary panel for attorneys. When Kline was the subject of an ethics investigation before the stateâ€™s highest court last year, an appeals court attorney tweeted disparaging comments about Kline â€” and predicted he would be disbarred. The attorney, Sarah Peterson Herr, was suspended and later fired for her actions. She faces a state disciplinary hearing in December. Kline was Johnson County district attorney in 2007 and 2008. He is now a visiting professor at Liberty University in Virginia.

The Abominog kidnaps Kirk, and David has to complete a task to save his friend. Ashford is credited on the cover for creating the idea for her novel. â€œHeâ€™s one proud daddy,â€? she said. â€œI gave him a rough draft for his birthday.â€? Thomas currently lives in Virginia, but she grew up in Bonner Springs. She graduated from Kansas State Uni-
versity and majored in criminology. She received a masterâ€™s in applied behavioral science from Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio. â€œWriting started as a hobby,â€? she said. â€œIt is an outlet for me.â€? Thomas also blogs on her website passionatepurpose.org. Her novel is self-published under her own company, Passionate Purpose. â€œIt is really difficult to break through,â€? into the publishing field, she said. â€œMy husband really helped me out in the uncharted territory.â€? Her husband, Dustin, is in the Air Force and their family has traveled across many states. Thomas stays at home and homeschools her two daughters, Rhianna and Sydney. The girls
are active in gymnastics and piano. Thomas writes in the quiet of evenings. â€œWhen my husband was deployed I got a lot of it done,â€? she said. â€œAbominogâ€? was released in early September and there will be a sequel. The book is available on the Amazon website. Thomas said she is also working to make it available on Barnes and Noble. Thomas said the book can also be found on her website. The story is geared for children 8 to 13. Thomas said she doesnâ€™t get to make it back to Iola often. â€œI really cherish my dadâ€™s stories,â€? she said. â€œI want to share them and pass them down to my kids.â€?

throughout the day. PLANS TO open the hospital for business on Oct. 29, have suffered a setback because of a failure by AT&T to make phone service available, said Ron Baker, chief executive officer of the hospital, late Friday. â€œThey still donâ€™t have the capabilities to make the voice connections operable,â€? Baker said, his voice fraught with frustration. â€œWeâ€™re exploring what we can do in the interim. Itâ€™s not out of range to consider another supplier, but we may be bound by contract to stay with AT&T in the end,â€? Baker said. â€œIt could be until January that we open. Weâ€™re hoping that by the mid-
dle of next week they can give us a solid estimate if and when a backup system could be installed,â€? he said. The delay causes a reshuffling of events planned around the Oct. 29 opening. â€œWe had to pull the plug on a sequence of events,â€? he said. â€œNext week we had vendors lined up to train employees on equipment. Those sessions need to be as close to the opening of the hospital as possible. â€œThey will all have to be rescheduled,â€? Baker said. Still feeling the flush from the overwhelming public response to the open house, Baker said, â€œthe support of the community is something we all can be proud of.â€?

First half troubles doom Mustangs By RICHARD LUKEN firstname.lastname@example.org
CHANUTE — A miserable first half, complete with missed assignments, lousy weather and an opponent eager to capitalize on everything Iola High did wrong spelled trouble for the Mustangs Friday evening. Three Iola turnovers led to quick Blue Comet scores as Chanute led 31-0 at the break and 38-0 just minutes into the second half. The Mustangs ended the game with a little added vigor, but could do no better than score a lone touchdown in the fourth quarter of a 38-7 defeat. The loss drops Iola to 4-3 overall and 0-1 in Class 4A district play. The Mustangs have another tough chore in righting their shop. They travel to Fort Scott next Friday for another district matchup. “Blown assignments killed us,” Iola head coach Doug Kerr said. “These were mistakes we hadn’t been making all year long.” Chanute was ready from the get-go. Iola forced an early Blue

Comet punt, but the Mustangs first pass was deflected at the
line of scrimmage and pulled by Chanute’s Caleb Dietsch for
an interception. Dietsch rambled into the end zone, but the
score was nullified because officials said a Blue Comet teammate illegally pushed Dietsch across the goal line. Little matter. Two plays later, Chanute’s Alex Son bowled through on a 2-yard score to push the Comets up 7-0. “It seems like when you have an early turnover in a high school game, it can stun a team,” Kerr said. “It took us until about halftime to get unstunned. There was some frustration.” Iola was still without a first down when Chanute quarterback Christian Wiltse found Ethan VanAnne alone for a 51yard touchdown pass late in the first half to push the lead to 17-0. Dallas Joyce joined the fun midway through the second quarter, capping an 11-play, 57yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown run to push the lead to 24-0. A Mustang fumble with 15 seconds left in the half turned into trouble again. Wiltse found Kenton Richards on a 30-yard touchdown pass on See MUSTANGS | Page B2
Pioneer League titles just out of Iola runners’ reach Mustangs miss out on crown by one point By RICHARD LUKEN email@example.com
RICHMOND — First, the good news. Iola High’s cross country runners put forth a number of strong performances at Thursday’s Pioneer League meet, with five runners earning all-league recognition for their efforts. Iola’s Kohl Endicott had what head coach Marv Smith described as a “hero’s” race, claiming second overall. Endicott ran the boys 5k with a time of 17:10.6, while Braden Plumlee finished sixth at 18:17.4 and Jeremy Spears was seventh at 18:19.5. But one last nugget remained agonizingly just out of reach. The Mustangs missed out on the Pioneer League team championship by a single point, finishing with 47 points to Anderson County’s 46. The crowd of exhausted runners, anxious coaches, parents and other supporters let out an audible gasp as the final results were announced. “I was crushed — the same reaction as our team members,” Smith said. “We expected it to be close, but we expected to win the league. Unfortunately, Anderson County had something to say about that.” The razor-thin margin was derived from totaling the finishes of each team’s top five runners. The Mustangs’ all-league trio was joined in the team results with Michael Wilson, who finished 13th at 18:59.4, and Colby Works, who took 19th at 19:21.1. Anderson County, conversely, had runners finish in places 3, 5, 9, 14 and 15. Smith said the Bulldogs’ ninth-place runner, Tyler Jumet, was perhaps the key runner in the sequence. “He also ran a ‘hero’s race,’” Smith said, noting Jumet shaved more than 80 seconds off his season’s best time.

he just equaled his previous mark, he would have finished in the mid teens. “Kohl did a great job, but it only moved him up from third to second,” Smith said. “Kohl, Braden and Jeremy
could not really enjoy their medal award ceremony because of their disappointment in the team results,” he continued. “That’s life, and that’s sports. You can work hard, do everything to the best of your See SO CLOSE | Page B3

Wildcats roll to Cubs open district on high note win over St. Paul ST. PAUL—Yates Center “bounced back” in a big way after a tough loss to Marais des Cygnes Valley with a 64-18 win over St. Paul Indians Friday night. “We just took care of business, it’s good to bounce back,” Head Coach Ben Weihn said following the game. The Wildcats put 22 points on the Indians in the first quarter, and another 30 in the second. The Indians only put up 18 in the first half, and were held scoreless in the third to end the game by mercy rule. “We just played really well,” Weihn said. “We knew we were the better team.”
The Wildcats had 380 yards of total offense in just three quarters — 315 from the ground, and 65 from the air — with some stellar individual performances as well. Calen DeNoon rushed for 183 yards, and had 25 receiving yards. Austin McNett rushed for 71 yards, and had 40 yards receiving. DeNoon contributed seven touchdowns in the contest, McNett and Sophomore Ty Spencer contributed a score as well. Defensively, McNett led in unassisted tackles with 14, followed by Justin Rossillon with 12 and DeNoon with nine.

EUREKA — The Humboldt Highs Cubs were playing in full-form Friday night against the Eureka Tornadoes, in a win that gives their district championship hopes a substantial boost. The Cubs came out on top in Eureka, 34-20, following up a close first half with an explosive second. “I was really proud of our kids,” Head Coach K.B. Criss said. “Fighting back after a couple of big losses and getting the win on the road.” Jacob Carpenter capped a Humboldt drive to open the scoring in the contest, with an 11-yard rush to the end zone — Caleb Vanatta’s 3-yard rush for the point after was good.
Following a Tornado score to cut the lead to 8-6, Hunter Murrow picked off Eureka for a 47-yard touchdown to start the second quarter. Eureka’s Colton Pitko hit DeAllen Nelson for a 68-yard touchdown pass to cut Humboldt’s lead to 16-12 going into the half. Another “tone-setting” play from Vanatta to start the second half gave the Cubs the boost they needed. He returned the opening kickoff 84-yards for a Cub touchdown. “I thought Hunter’s pick six was a huge play in the first half and Caleb’s kickoff return to start the second half gave us the momentum and set the tone,” Criss said.
Despite another fruitful drive for the Tornadoes, an 25-yard Alex Murrow touchdown pass to Justin Meins at the end of the third, coupled with a 55-yard Vanatta rushing touchdown in the fourth, put the win in the books for the Cubs. Vanatta led in rushing with 16 carries for 136 yards, followed by Carpenter with nine carries for 32 yards. From the air, Alex Murrow completed seven passes on 12 attempts for 85 yards. Meins had three receptions for 55 yards, and Hunter Murrow had three receptions for 27 yards. According to Criss, the Cubs’ defense had a “bend, but not break” strategy for the evening.
They allowed 318 yards of offense from the Tornadoes, but snuffed out several drives. Zach Osborn led the Cubs in solo tackles with 10, followed by Carpenter with seven and Hunter Murrow with six. The Cubs picked off the Tornadoes four times as well. Hunter Murrow had two, Carpenter and Meins had one apiece. The Cubs travel to Fredonia in another key district matchup Friday.

next play from scrimmage to push lead to 31-0. The halftime break did little to slow the Blue Comet charge. Iola’s second play from scrimmage in the third quarter was picked off by Chanute’s Derek Sharp. Wiltse found Dakota Gough on a 28yard pass on fourth-andone, setting up Joyce’s second touchdown of the night, a 3-yard run.
THE MUSTANGS had two choices from there: slink their tails and go quietly into the frigid night, or to fight back. Fight back, they did. While the Mustang offense still could not find its rhythm against the stout Blue Comet defense, Iola’s defenders amped up their play a few notches.

Eric Maxwell blasted Wiltse on one incomplete pass shortly before Adam Kauth leveled a Blue Comet receiver on another incompletion. Iola forced a fumble and punt on Chanute’s next two possessions. A bad snap on another Blue Comet punt led to a fumble recovery by Iola’s Kaden Macha, who returned the ball to the Chanute 8. Macha kept the ball on the next two plays, running in the second on a 1-yard keeper for Iola’s sole score. “I was very proud of how the guys fought back in the second half,” Kerr said, “and it wasn’t like we were doing it against their backups. They had their starters in until the end. We challenged the guys at halftime to play their best 24

minutes of the season, and I think we did that. It was 7-7 after halftime.” After erupting for more than 320 yards of total offense in the first two quarters, the Blue Comets were held to just 65 in the second half. But Chanute’s defense was there to make sure Iola could draw no closer. The Mustangs were limited to 149 yards of total offense on the night, and only 19 yards passing. John Whitworth led the Mustang ground game with 43 yards on nine carries. Macha and Brice Aiello rushed for 34 yards apiece. McIn-
tosh was 4 of 12 passing for 19 yards. Kauth had two receptions for 12 yards; Trent Latta had two catches for seven. Macha led the Iola defense with 14 tackles, including six solos. Derrick Weir, Bryce Misenhelter and Jesse Zimmerman had seven stops apiece. Shane Walden had a quarterback sack. Maxwell and Macha recovered fumbles. Macha also had a strong night punting, with three 50-yard-plus punts. He averaged 45 yards per punt. Friday’s contest was played in a light mist,

Marmaton Valley Junior High’s squads down Lancers COLONY — Marmaton Valley Junior High’s volleyball team capped its run to perfection Thursday evening. The Wildcats’ A-team swept host Crest Middle School, 25-10, 25-16, to end the 2013 season with a 14-0 record. “Their volleyball has just begun,” Wildcat coach Brenda Mills said. “I told these girls they haven’t come close
to reaching their potential. It’s going to be fun to watch them play next year in high school.” Shayla Brooks led Marmaton Valley with 10 points and a kill, including a seven-point run, while Trinitee Gutierrez had seven points and two kills. MaKayla Brooks had six points and two kills. Paige Becker had a kill. The Wildcat B-team
ended its season with a 9-4 record with a 25-12, 25-12 win over the Lancers. Shayli Woods had seven points, while Genna Mitchell and Mickayla Genn had six points each. THE WILDCATS also prevailed, 26-20, in a thrilling football game that came down to the last minute. Marmaton Valley held the Lancers out of the
end zone at the end of the game, head coach Dan Uhlrich said. “It was a very good game against a tough Crest team,” Uhlrich said. “The boys worked really hard. I hope they learned many life lessons through their experiences.” Both Marmaton Valley and Crest ended the football season with a 6-1 record.

ability, and still not get the results you want. It is not a fun lesson to learn. Since I have coached so long, I have been on both sides of the results, but for our seniors, it was a tough day. “It will take a while to get over it, but they will,” Smith said. “They will face other disappointments in life and this one will seem minor.” Other highlights: Works improved his time by more than a minute from a race on the same course two weeks earlier, while Isaiah Fawson, improved his projected finish by at least seven places, Smith said. Of the top five freshman runners, three were from Iola, Plumlee, Fawson and Kendall Jay. THE GIRLS’ race also left Smith feeling depleted, “more than the boys race,” he said. Abigail Taylor, a strong favorite to win the league title, aggravated a knee injury she suffered two weeks ago, and took fourth in the 4k with a time of 17:13. Taylor had defeated Wellsville’s Lauren McDaniel, Thursday’s win-
ner, by more than 30 seconds at Central Heights two weeks earlier. “Abigail was the runner-up last year, came to all of the summer workouts, and it was her time,” Smith said. “She deserved the gold medal, but that did not happen, either.” Smith likely will keep Taylor out of next week’s Class 4A regional meet in Ottawa. “No way can she continue to irritate the already bad knee problem,” Smith said. “She has to totally stop and hope it doesn’t bother her next race.” The girls had two other highlights. Megan Klubek reached her goal of earning all-league by placing eighth with a time of 17:36. Shannon Vogel finished 22nd with a time of 19:35. “Her goal was to break the 20-minute barrier,” Smith said. The top 10 runners earned all-league honors. With only three entrants, Iola did not receive a team score. Anderson County’s girls placed seven runners among the top 11 finishers to easily win the team title. “And none of those girls are seniors,” Smith said. middle-

Turn signals have a mind of their own Dear Tom and Ray:
I have a 2006 Dodge Durango with 118,000 miles. Recently, the turn signals have developed a mind of their own. I turn on the left turn signal, and after faking me out by blinking left, it will, of its own accord, start blinking right, even though the signal handle stays in the left turn position. It does not do this all the time, but it’s getting more frequent. Of course, it does not do this when I take it to my mechanic, who says he has to see it to fix it. The hazard lights do the same. After initially working as designed, they will go haywire, like shortedout Christmas lights, and blink any which way. — Dennis Ray: Well, that sounds festive, Dennis. Tom: I’m glad there’s something to cheer you up, because we’re not going to make you happy. Ray: Unfortunately, while most cars use a $25 flasher module to control the directional and hazard lights, this particular model uses a microcomputer under the fuse box called a front control module. Tom: Why is that bad news? The Dodge dealer gets about $700 for one of these puppies. Ray: If you have a dealer who is kindhearted, sweet-natured and susceptible to the smell of warm brownies (which you’ll arrive carrying), you can try to get him to work with you. Ask him if he’d be willing to install a new FCM as a test to see if that solves the problem. Tom: It simply plugs in, so installation is not a big deal. If it fixes the problem, everyone’s happy. Well, except you, since you’re out $700. But at least you’ve fixed your truck. Ray: But if the FCM doesn’t fix it, a willing dealer can simply swap your old one back in
IMPORTANT SUBSCRIBER NOTICE
Going on vacation? Want your paper stopped?
Tom and Ray Magliozzi and you guys can try another solution. Tom: With electronic parts like these, there’s no harm in testing one in a car and, if it doesn’t solve the problem, putting it back on the shelf for another customer. The part still will function as new. Ray: Less likely to be causing the problem but just as easy to test is the body control module, another microcomputer involved in all kinds of lighting, plus door locks, electric windows and ventilation functions. Tom: But if your dealer won’t work with
dealer won’t work with you to test the modules, that makes things a lot harder. Without more evidence, I, personally, wouldn’t start by buying replacement modules. They’re a lot of money. And if you spend $700 on a black box and it turns out your old black box was perfectly fine, you’d understandably be bent out of shape. Ray: So I think if I had to lay out my own money to try something, I’d probably try the multifunction switch first. Tom: The multifunction switch is the stalk on the left side of the steering column that you push up and down to engage your turn signals. Unlike the computerized modules, the switch has moving parts, which we know
wear out over time. Ray: A new one will cost you about 300 bucks, installed. The dealership where we get our Dodge parts sells quite a few of them, so perhaps that’s what’s causing the problem. Tom: And by the way, part sales histories can help you make bettereducated guesses about stuff like this. If you ask your dealer’s parts guy if they sell a lot of BCMs for this car and he says they never sell them, that’s a clue that they generally don’t go bad, and that’s probably not your issue. Ray: If he says they sell 15 a week, you may be onto something. We wish you the best of luck, Dennis! And while you’re working on it, use your hand signals.

MV falls to Blu-Jays, 36-4 MORAN — The Marmaton Valley High Wildcats laid an egg Friday, and Coach Dan Uhlrich had no desire to sugarcoat it. The Wildcats lost 36-4 at home against the Pleasanton High Blu-Jays. “It was an ugly football game,” Uhlrich said. The Wildcats came out to an early lead in the first, with back-toback safeties on the Jays. They were tackled in the end zone twice in the quarter, once by Sage Hall and then again by Joey Jefferis. But, things went downhill room there. Pleasanton put just eight points on the board in the second quarter, making the score 8-4

tions for 26 yards. Defensively, Trent Johnson led in tackling with four unassisted takedowns. “We just didn’t play smart,” Uhlrich said. Marmaton Valley will face off against Yates Center at home Friday in a district matchup.
at the half. Then, with failed adjustments following the break, the Jays blew the game wide open with two more touchdowns in the third. “After the halftime adjustments, they didn’t listen to me,” Uhlrich said. The Wildcats allowed 12 more points in the fourth. The Wildcats rushed 42 times for 12 yards (an average of 2.8 yards per carry) on the ground, and had 38 passing yards — a total of 50 yards of offense. They have seven penalties for 55 yards. Micheal Genn was the only runner with positive yards; he rushed 22 times for 23 yards. Brady Newman had two recep-

Grace Sloan is very pleased with a decision she made a few weeks ago. You see, Grace was no longer able to live at home on her own due to some health issues. She was staying with one of her daughters. This worked out fine for a while, but her daughter was also caring for her own husband who has dementia. Grace felt that caring for two people with so many needs 24 hour a day was too much for her daughter handle by herself. That’s when Grace decided it might be a good idea to come to Windsor Place.

Pony football squads roll by Coffeyville COFFEYVILLE â€” Iola Middle Schoolâ€™s football teams were downright dominant in picking up a pair of victories Thursday. The seventh-graders rushed for 365 yards and four touchdowns, while completing a touchdown on the Poniesâ€™ only pass attempt of the game, in a 38-0 victory over Roosevelt Middle School of Coffeyville. The eighth-grade, meanwhile, broke open an 8-6 lead with 34 points over the second and third quarters to win 42-14. The wins put the
seventh-gradersâ€™ record at 4-2, while the eighth grade stands at 3-3. The Pony squads will wrap up the 2013 season Thursday at home against Parsons. IOLAâ€™S
Driskel led the way for the seventh-graders. He rushed for 246 yards and three touchdowns, on only 12 rushes. He also completed a pass to Cole Regehr for 36 yards and another score. Tayton rushed for touchdown runs of 55 and 60 yards in the first quarter, 32 yards mid-

HHS JV splits pair EUREKA â€” Humboldt Highâ€™s junior varsity volleyball team split a pair of matches Tuesday at Eureka. The Lady Cub JV downed Cherryvale 255, 25-18, before falling to its host, 25-9, 25-20. Makaylah McCall had a combined seven aces and four kills in the win over Cherryvale. Kira McReynolds added

way through the second. His 36-yarder to Regehr came with 36 seconds left in the half. Kane Rogers added a two-point run, while Matt Karrâ€™s twopoint conversion put Iola on top 30-0 at halftime. Karr rumbled in on a five-yard touchdown run in the third period, followed by Elijah Luedkeâ€™s two-point conversion to cap the scoring. Karr rushed nine times for 59 yards and a touchdown. Rogers had 53 yards on six carries. Luedke had a seven-yard carry. â€œIt was a very good effort from start to finish,â€? Iola head coach Marty Taylor said. â€œTayton saw the field tonight and really ran hard. Matt and Kane did a nice job of hitting the holes and picking up big chunks, too. â€œThe line came off the ball much better tonight,â€? he continued. â€œThey took a big step forward.â€? SIX IOLA eighthgraders had at least 10 yards rushing, while four scored touchdowns. Evan Sigg had 177 yards passing and another touchdown. Taylor lauded the blocking efforts of Nick Vaughn, Drake Sell, Caden Knavel, Alex Morrison, Zeth DePriest, Kanyon Beasley, Tyler Streeter, Dakota Mitchell, Matt Miller and Ethan Holloway.
â€œEverything started up front,â€? Taylor said. â€œThe offensive line was great. They opened some huge holes.â€? The blocking allowed a stable of Ponies to rack up yards aplenty, even though nobody had more than nine carries. Isaac Vink got things started late in the first quarter on a 31-yard run coming off of a reverse. Sigg passed to Vaughn for a 67-yard score early in the second quarter, before Nik Peterson scored on a 17-yard run. Sigg ran in a keeper from 27 yards away to start the third quarter, followed by Petersonâ€™s second touchdown, a nine-yard run. Matt Komma capped the scoring with a three-yard rush late in the third quarter. Peterson rushed nine times for 107 yards. Sigg ran for 93 and completed 5 of 9 passing. Cale Barnhart rushed for 46 yards, Komma for 23, Vink for 31 and Vaughn for 10. Holloway had three receptions for 74 yards, Vaughn had the 67-yarder on his only catch and Vink had a 35-yard reception. â€œMatt Komma made some great blocks out of his fullback spot, and the backs ran hard,â€? Taylor said. â€œEvan was very good tonight. He made good decisions and put the ball where it needed to be.â€?

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers
A couple of questions we just had to ask — ourselves
Getty Images/ALEX TRAUTWIG
Jeff Burton awaits the inevitable money run. Who’ll be the next non-Chaser to win a race? GODSPEAK: Jamie McMurray is the most underrated restrictorplate driver in the Cup Series, so he gets my vote at Talladega. KEN’S CALL: Jeff Burton is job-hunting, which often leads to the magical appearance of speed.
What are the odds we get a tame Talladega? GODSPEAK: Let’s see. They run inches apart, three-wide at 200 mph for 188 laps. I’ll put all my chips on red, as in “red flag.” KEN’S CALL: You’d get better odds on Arkansas over Alabama this weekend.

HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ
Kyle Busch’s frustration level is rising. There’s that running feud with Brad Keselowski, that crash at Kansas and the fact he’s never won a Chase race. Busch finished fifth at Charlotte and said, “It certainly stinks.” Go on. “We’re not good enough. It’s frustrating, man. I’m beating myself up every week trying to figure out what I got to do to be better, and I don’t know what it is. I work hard through practice. I work hard through the week. I study film. I do everything I need to do — but it’s not paying off.” Three of the drivers that finished ahead of Busch on Saturday night are the same drivers he is battling for title honors. “We need to win races and we’re not capable of doing that right now,” Busch said.
‘KEZ’ COMPLETES PENSKE SWEEP Brad Keselowski’s victory at Charlotte was important on many levels for the 2012 Sprint Cup champion, who missed the Chase playoffs this season. During postrace interviews, car owner Roger Penske said Keselowski was the final driver at Penske Racing (NASCAR, IndyCar) to win a race this year. “At the end of the day we haven’t been to victory circle, and I think Brad was concerned,” Penske said. “We all were. But we knew he was the guy that gave us a championship last year, and every driver in our stable now has won a race this year.” The Penske NASCAR (Cup, Nationwide) lineup includes AJ Allmendinger, Sam Hornish Jr., Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney. Over in the IndyCar Series stable are Helio Castroneves and Will Power. All went to Victory Lane before “Kez.” Keselowski won five Cup Series races last season, so this one brought a sense of relief to the young Michigan driver, who is not afraid to share his opinion on any subject.
“To put all that together at the end and come out on top is something we’re going to be proud of and cherish for a long, long time,” Keselowski said.
Is Jimmie laughing all the way to the banquet? Maybe, but his seating arrangement isn’t set.
EARNHARDT’S FADE The Earnhardt Nation had high hopes for Dale Earnhardt Jr. at Charlotte. He started sixth in the No. 88 Chevy and led 19 laps before slowly sliding backward through the 43-car field. He finished 15th. “Thought we had a top-five car and I don’t know what happened,” Earnhardt said. “We lost a rubber out of the right-rear spring or something like that. It just would not turn at all the last half of the race pretty much. We are just kind of trying to figure out what is going on.” Next up is Talladega, where Junior has five wins, but none since 2004, which was nine years and 50 facialhair combinations ago.
A potential bad sign for Jimmie? For those with the thankless task of trying to beat the No. 48 team during the next five weeks — as well as those who simply pull against the No. 48 — Charlotte’s missed opportunity might just be a small sign of hope. Generally, when Jimmie Johnson is on any kind of roll and is in position to win, he wins. But this past Saturday night, fate conspired against him and he finished fourth.
Will that end up hurting him? Ask after Talladega this week. As always, Talladega looms as, potentially, the Great Equalizer. It’ll be interesting to see what strategies the two points leaders — Matt Kenseth and Johnson — employ once the green flag flies and fans slide to the edge of their seats.
Would “hanging in the back” be within the spirit of competition? Assuming it’s part of a strategy to successfully compete, let’s assume NASCAR is OK with it. Restrictor-plate racing already falls under the category of “contrived competition,” so employing the survival mode shouldn’t be frowned upon.

This may shock you, but Kyle doesn’t think it’s his fault.
Kyle Busch vs. Brad Keselowski: The two drivers showed their dislike for each other by trading barbs via the media at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “Keselowski poured a pinch of salt on the wound by winning at Charlotte, which was four positions better than Busch. Ouch.”
