Fall Festivities Larios family carries on spine-tingling tradition By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

More than 20 years ago, Mike Larios purchased a small motorized spider he could hang in his home for Halloween. It was the beginning of a tradition for his family, and needless to say, things have gotten a bit bigger. Mike and his family were selected by the Iola Pride group as having the best decorated home for the Halloween season. There were 15 entries in this year’s contest. “Every year it gets bigger and bigger,” Larios said Tuesday evening. Duane McGraw stopped by to congratulate them and hand out their reward — a homemade pumpkin pie. The Larios home, 717 S. Sycamore, is not easily missed. This

year’s display is littered with spiders, black cats, cobwebs, lights and the main attractions — different animatronic contraptions. These motorized gouls and goblins stand at human-size, if not larger, and the Larioses have everything from a headless horseman, werewolf and witch stirring a cauldron. Mike and Kim Larios’ grandchildren raced around the yard during the cool fall evening, enjoying a break in the rain. They have been covering up the electronics to protect them from this week’s wet weather. Larios said he gets most of his decorations from stores like Target and Walmart in the region, as well as online. It takes them about three weeks to set See LARIOS | Page A3

Foreign friendship renewed By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

A lifelong friendship, sparked by Mayte Garcia-Romera’s stay in Iola as a foreign exchange student 20 years ago, was reignited this month, with an added flair. Garcia-Romero, in Iola to visit Christy Cleaver and other old friends, brought her mother, Ana Garcia, from their native Madrid, Spain. It’s her mother’s first trip to the

United States, Garcia-Romera said. Mother and daughter were staying in Iola for a week before heading to New York City for a week’s worth of sight-seeing before returning to Spain. Garcia-Romero arrived in Iola for the 1992-93 school year to stay with Cleaver and her family. She enjoyed the stay so much, she returned to Iola for her senior year, even though she was no longer a part of the student exchange program. See FRIENDSHIP | Page A3

Straight from the source Students learn about Native American culture By KAYLA BANZET The Iola Register

Fifth grade student Dylan Bycroft and his classmates at Jefferson Elementary learned about Native American culture from two special guests Tuesday afternoon. Bycroft’s great-uncle Rick and great-aunt Bobbi Robertson were at the school to teach students about the history of Native Americans. The couple are from Miami, Okla. Among their historical tidbits, Rick

Robertson explained the symbolism of the pipe ceremony. “The East is red and it means knowledge,” he said holding a pipe. The south is yellow and this color means spring and growth. The west is where the sun sets and the west is black. “White is for the North,” he said “The white covers Mother Earth with a blanket of snow.” Rick said Mother Earth, Father Sky and the pipe holder are part of the cer-

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Police say a man who died after a rollover crash in southeast Wichita was shot before the wreck. Investigators are trying to determine if the man who died after the accident early Tuesday was killed by the gunshot or the car crash. The car came to rest in the yard of a private residence. No one else was injured. Emergency crews freed the 47-year-old man from the car but he died at a Wichita hospital. His name has not been released.

Kingman County rejects sales tax KINGMAN, Kan. (AP) — Kingman County voters have rejected a tax increase that would have been used to build a new law enforcement center. Unofficial returns from Tuesday's voting showed the measure lost 802 to 749. The proposal was for a new one-quarter percent retailers' sales tax for 20 years and to extend a current three-quarters percent sales tax,

also for 20 years. KAKE reports the county planned to use the sales tax revenue and payments from a commercial wind farm to build an $11.8 million law enforcement center. It would have housed the county sheriff's office and Kingman police. The current law enforcement center was built in 1959. Supporters of the tax say the current center is outdated and too small.

Veterinarian PROFESSIONAL, CARING STAFF When I was a kid, it always seemed like a severe form of punishment when my Dad said, “Let’s go pick up rocks.� Now, as an adult, I still find myself picking up rocks. Those pesky things that are around my house, in my garden, in the pasture, inside dogs.....That’s right, every now and then we find dogs with “rocks� or stones in their urinary bladder. Urinary stones are known as “uroliths� and a couple of different theories are believed to cause these stones. The most widely accepted belief is that the dog avoids “going� for one reason or another-like it’s raining outside or he is trying to hold off until his owner comes home to let him outside. By remaining in the bladder for an extended period of time, the urine becomes more concentrated, often forming small crystals. The crystals are composed of salts that are normally found in urine. If the crystals are voided soon enough, the problem is often avoided. If the dog avoids “going� day after day, however, those crystals can serve as building blocks for larger stones to form. Most of the stones we find are in the bladder, but it is also common to find them in the urethra, the tube that the urine passes through after leaving the bladder. So, what are the symptoms of having bladder stones? Many times they look like a urinary tract infection (UTI)-blood in urine, straining to urinate, and “stopping and going repeatedly� are common symptoms. Sometimes it is a UTI, but sometimes it’s more. How do we know the difference? If your dog doesn’t respond to the traditional treatment for a UTI, or if it keeps coming back, we may be more suspicious. Some dog breeds are more prone to developing stones than others, and sometimes we can even feel the stones in the bladder. If we suspect stones, we will likely recommend an x-ray. Even though some stones don’t show up well on x-rays, it’s still a good idea to look. It can make a very quick diagnosis. If the crystals or stones are lodged in the urethra, prompt treatment is necessary. These animals may be completely unable to pass urine, risking a bladder or urethral rupture. Pets with bladder stones can survive months, but that’s not the case if urine is somewhere that it shouldn’t be-like in the belly. If you think your pet is unable to urinate, get him seen right away! Now that we know that there are bladder stones, what do we do? Sometimes we will recommend a diet change to attempt to dissolve the stones. If that’s not working after two months, or if they are just too large, surgery is usually necessary. Even after surgery it is likely that they will need special food. This is to allow the bladder to recover from the trauma caused by the stones, and also to dissolve any microscopic crystals that may not have been flushed out of the bladder during surgery. So, the next time you have to work late and come home to a very sad looking pet next to a puddle on the floor, just smile and remember that he was only trying to save you from driving down that long, rocky, driveway to come and see us!

up, and he said the whole family pitches in. He held up the spider he purchased in Manhattan that started the yearly decorations. “That’s what started this,” Larios said. “Kim and I love Halloween.” Kim Larios said as a child, her parents did not let them participate in many of its festivities; they believed it was too dangerous. Now, she and her husband are more than happy to have the whole family involved — if they’re not too scared, that is. “It has got to look realistic,” Larios said, surveying this year’s myriad collection of bloody ghouls and green goblins. He and his family moved from Junction City 21 years ago, and after buying that $20 spider, they started their collection. “Twenty bucks at the time was a lot for us,”

Larios said. “Now it turned to this. I love it.” The displays will be set up through Halloween, ready for trick-ortreaters to test their bravery against the witches, werewolves and zombies. Then, it’s time to take everything down, until next year. “Every bit of my family pitches in,” he said, and then laughed. “It’s funny, afterward no one’s around when it’s time to pick up.” Other winners from this year’s decorating contest were: Shayne and Teri Shaughnessy, 624 S. Washington, second; Lyle and Brenda Kern, 417 E. Jackson, third; Danny and Regina Cochran, 516 S. Walnut, fourth; and Brian Shaughnessy, 702 Kansas Dr., fifth.

Snake vs. tractor TIFTON, Ga. (AP) — A south Georgia businessman is being called “the rattlesnake wrangler” after using his tractor to kill a 5-foot diamondback rattlesnake. Lee Fletcher, part owner of Chula Peanut & Grain Co. near Tifton, was doing some work on his tractor when he spotted the snake on the ground Oct. 19. He said he used the bucket on the front of the tractor to pin it down and kill it. The Tifton Gazette reports that a sign now hangs in the small community: “Welcome to Chula! Home of ‘the rattlesnake wrangler’ Lee Fletcher.” Fletcher said one of the workers at Chula Peanut & Grain Co. skinned the snake and plans to make a belt from it.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Fact: Schools doing with less Fiction: Governor says he’s increased money to schools, teachers It should be good news. The state’s enrollment for K-12 students is up by 1 percent, totalling nearly 460,000 students, and follows a trend of annual increases as the state continues to grow. Trouble is, less money is being made available for their education. Funding for schools has dropped by 16.5 percent since 2005, when the State Supreme Court ruled legislators were failing the state’s constitution to provide a “suitable” education for its students. In 2005, per pupil funding was $3,900. The court recommended it be raised to $4,492 per pupil and until the recession began in 2009, legislators were making incremental progress in meeting that goal. Today, about 10,000 more students are enrolled in public schools, yet per pupil funding has dropped to $3,838. A recent editorial in the New York Times criticized Gov. Sam Brownback for his leadership on education. The Times said the Governor’s five-year, $3.7 billion tax cut is at the expense of adequately funding schools. Instead of taking the state’s meager rebound from the recession to replace cuts to state schools, legislators have allowed massive tax cuts for businesses and individuals. Brownback refuted the NYT claim that under his administration funding for education has fallen another $500 million, resulting in teacher layoffs and larger class sizes. “Since I was elected, state spending on K-12 education has increased by more than $200 million and teacher salaries have

grown,” Brownback wrote in his own letter to the editor. The governor’s claims are disingenuous. To the best of our knowledge, and with the help of Duane Goossen, former state budget director, this is how the governor twisted the numbers to suit his rhetoric. At the height of the recession in 2010, the federal government helped states like Kansas keep their schools open and teachers paid. For that school year alone, Kansas received $300 million in federal aid and used $2.7 billion from its state general fund for education. That put state funding for schools at $3 billion, down from the previous year’s allocation of $3.135 billion, but still up compared to current funding which is around $2.84 billion. So the governor chose the state’s lowest point in recent history — the height of the recession — to say he has overseen an increase in state

funding to schools, conveniently omitting the federal aid which kept funding at a more adequate level. As for the governor’s claim of teachers seeing more pay; that’s wrong. Yes, the state has directed more money to the retirement program for state employees, but considering it’s $9 billion in debt, that’s just the tip of the iceberg for what truly needs to be done to make it solvent for future generations. BROWNBACK is frustrated with the media’s constant attacks on his grand plan for Kansas. “Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to increase spending on education and cut taxes at the same time. We have done it three years in a row by focusing our resources on the core functions of state government, which includes education,” he wrote in his rebuttal to the NYT editorial. No governor, you haven’t. State schools are being forced to manage on fewer resources. That’s a fact, no matter how you spin it. — Susan Lynn

Train wreck on the horizon By DAVIS MERRITT

The Kansas Supreme Court ruled in 2005 that Kansas was failing to meet its constitution’s requirement for “suitable” spending on public education. The Legislature agreed to raise base state aid over several years from about $3,900 per pupil to $4,492, and the legal battles were temporarily over. But subsequent legislatures, despite inflation, began to back away, and now, with extreme conservatives and Gov. Sam Brownback in charge, the figure is $3,838 (even less than eight years ago) and the issue is back before the court, which is expected to rule by January whether the state is again out of constitutional compliance. This time, however, many legislators, including House and Senate leaders, are, in the words of Kansas Republican Party executive director and chief counsel Clayton Barker, “demanding rejection of any court order that requires spending more than the Legislature approved.” They believe that only the Legislature can authorize spending.

But what, exactly, does “rejection” mean? Neither Barker nor party chairman Kelly Arnold can or will say for certain, but both use the words “train wreck.” It’s possible, of course, that all the legislative muttering is designed to warn the court about a constitutional showdown, i.e. “train wreck,” certainly a high-risk tactic not likely to escape or please the justices. But if legislators seriously believe that one or two branches of our three-branch system can reject a final ruling by the judicial branch, why do we have a court system or a constitution? If a Supreme Court cannot insist that the unconstitutionality it finds be remedied, the court is rendered impotent, balance is destroyed, and the Legislature’s power left unbridled. For Barker, who feels that the 2005 court overreached by ordering the Legislature to increase funding and fears the present one may do the same, “That’s the rub to which I have no answer.” It’s possible that the court could find the state out of compliance but stop

Jill Docking big boost to Paul Davis ticket Whether enough Kansans will see the Democratic ticket for governor in 2014 as the dream team, who knows at this point. But it is the best ticket the Dems have fielded since Kathleen Sebelius — a popular governor who’s not so popular right now as secretary of Health and Human Services in the Obama administration — and Mark Parkinson.

Democratic candidate Paul Davis seemingly strengthened his bid for governor by making an early announcement on Tuesday of Wichita businesswoman Jill Docking as his running mate.

date, a bright Lawrence lawyer who serves in the House as minority leader. Be that as it may, he doesn’t enjoy widespread name recognition across the state. His running mate, however, brings that to the ticket. Docking is a career financial advisor and former chairwoman of the Kansas Board of Regents. She is the wife of former Lt. Gov. Tom Docking, son and grandson of two former governors. And, more importantly, she brings good ideas and a strong voice of her own to the race. Before Davis formally announced, Docking was speculated as the candidate to be on the top of the Democratic ticket. They will run aggressively against incumbent Gov. Sam Brownback, the reformist Republican who has plenty of positions they can attack - namely a tax plan that has eliminated income taxes for business owners and shifted more burden to the poor and middle class, and a corre-

spondingly frugal state budget for public education and social services. The Democrats think Brownback is vulnerable, and the latest Survey USA poll shows that he has a 58-percent disapproval rating among Kansans. And in the first gubernatorial race polling since Docking joined the Davis ticket, Survey USA showed the Democrats ahead of Brownback and Jeff Colyer 43 percent to 39 percent. In any event, some of Brownback’s policies have been controversial, and the Democrats finally have fielded a ticket that at least ought to make re-election a challenge for the Republican in a decidedly red state. And if Kansas voters tune out the campaign television commercials long enough to listen to the debate, they should discover they have a clearly different philosophical choice for governor in the November election next year. — The Hutchinson News

short of ordering a specific remedy. That would leave the Legislature to do nothing or to do something that fails the constitution’s “suitable” requirement, which would simply bring everybody back to court for additional months or years while more Kansas children are not adequately educated. But if the court goes beyond what the legislative and executive branches believe is its authority and they “reject” its order, what then? Does the court hold legislators and/or the governor in contempt? If so, is it prepared to send sheriffs to toss them in jail until they comply, the normal result of contempt? Will the sheriffs, who are officers of the court but also political creatures, also refuse? Then what? Talk about your train wreck. The looming confrontation invokes some of the radical right’s favorite mantras: that “unelected judges” are destroying democracy, that public schools are wildly tossing around money, that personal liberty means having no societal obligation other than self-preservation. It also threatens virtually every detail of Brownback’s budgetary policy, including $3.5 billion in tax cuts. The political stakes are enormous, but the risk to democracy is even larger. Short term, the only way to avoid a train wreck that crumbles our tripartite system is compliance. Long term, the political process could amend the constitution and replace the justices. But those changes must be the result of a deliberative process involving all citizens, not an ideology-driven revolt by a temporary majority in one party. We’ve just witnessed the damage that can wreak. Davis Merritt is a Wichita journalist and author.

The Allen County Health Service will be discontinued Nov. 30 and a new program for providing health care for relief clients will begin Dec. 1. The decision was made by the county commissioners and Mrs. Pauline Flynn, welfare director, at the suggestion of the county medical association. Representatives of the physicians met with the commissioners Oct. 19 to express their dissatisfaction and outline a different plan for financing medical care for the county’s 1,295 relief clients. The state department of social welfare has agreed to the new program largely because of the promise to decrease costs. ***** Dr. Morris O’Dell is opening an office at 6½ S.

Tunnel connects two continents By ROY GUTMAN MCT Foreign Staff

ISTANBUL — After a century and a half of discussion and eight years of construction, Turkey on Tuesday opened the first rail tunnel under the Bosporus Strait, establishing a direct link between Europe and Asia and opening the possibility of train travel between London and Beijing. But the tunnel and four stations, built with a Japanese development loan, ran up against criticism from Turkish engineers and architects, who said the flexible joints linking the concrete tunnel tubes

could leak, and that the structure would be at risk in an earthquake. Turkey’s transportation minister responded that it was the safest place in Istanbul. The Marmaray project, as it’s known, is intended to ease traffic congestion in this sprawling city of 13.8 million by creating a rail link between the two continents and anchoring a new 37-mile subway line. The new tunnel has the capacity of 75,000 passengers per hour, or more than a million a day, and the overall project is expected to cost $8 billion when it is completed in two years. Ottoman Sultan Ab-

dulmedjid first proposed construction of a tunnel in 1860, but no plans were drawn up until the late 19th century, and construction was never begun. The tunnel and subway line are among the greatest public works project that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has brought to completion. At Tuesday’s opening ceremony for what he called the “project of the century,” he pledged to proceed with his other mega-projects: a third bridge across the Bosporus, the world’s biggest airport, and a second tunnel to carry cars.

Counties sue state for decreased funds By JOHN HANNA Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — About half of Kansas’ counties, including Allen County, filed a lawsuit Tuesday alleging the state shortchanged them by $7.6 million in distributing aid meant to soften the economic effects of declining oil and natural gas production. The lawsuit contends that Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration improperly accelerated a cut in payments tucked into budget legislation approved this year by the GOP-dominated Legislature. The lawsuit was filed in Shawnee County District Court by the governing commissions in 52 of the state’s 105 counties. The state created a trust fund in 2005 to help it offset decreases in property tax revenues

fund payments was first reported this week by The Hays Daily News. No hearing has been set in the case. Defendants in the lawsuit include State Treasurer Ron Estes, whose office distributes the money, Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan, whose department administers the trust fund, and Secretary of Administration Jim Clark, whose agency oversees accounting and budgeting for the executive branch. Department of Revenue spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said the agency is consulting with legislators about what they intended when they wrote this year’s budget provision dealing with the trust fund. “The language in the appropriations bill was unclear about how much the Legislature intended to have sent to the counties,” she said in an

email statement. “The Department of Revenue is working to clarify the amount.” Kansas law had said the state would dedicate 12.41 percent of its severance tax revenues to the counties’ trust fund. However, this year’s budget legislation said the figure would drop to 6 percent for the fiscal year that began in July and set it at 8 percent for the fiscal year that begins in July 2014. The figure would rise back to 12.41 percent after that. In a Sept. 26 letter to a Department of Administration computersystems manager, Jon Hummel, the governor’s acting budget director, and Raney Gilliland, director of the Legislature’s research staff, acknowledged that the budget provision could be interpreted as the counties contend, with lesser payments starting next year. The counties attached a copy of the letter to their lawsuit. But, the letter added, “to clarify the 2013 Legislature’s intent,” counties were to receive the lesser payments this year.

experienced by oil- and gas-producing counties when production declines and the value of leases drops. The state sets aside revenues from its severance tax on oil and gas production. Trust fund payments are distributed in October, based on the previous fiscal year’s severance tax collections. The counties contend that they were due more than $14 million this year and that the state can’t impose lower payments until next year. Last month, Brownback’s administration concluded that the budget legislation was meant to cut payments immediately, and the Department of Revenue said Tuesday that it had distributed a total of $7 million to 71 counties. “It’s somewhat hard for me to see how they could have made that decision,” said John Frieden, a Topeka attorney representing the counties. The lawsuit says the state’s duty to pay the larger amount this year is “plain and unambiguous.” The counties’ plan to sue state officials over the decrease in trust

Kan. man found in Utah ravine wrote letters to family SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A missing Kansas man spent his final days trapped in the wreckage of his van in a rural Utah ravine — writing goodbye letters to the family he unexpectedly left in early September. David Welch, 54, was found on Oct. 18 by a hitchhiker who spotted the crash in a desolate stretch of eastern Utah more than 50 miles from any town, said Utah Highway Patrol trooper Gary Riches. They found Welch trapped inside his mangled minivan at the bottom of a 50-foot ravine — with hand-written notes to his wife and four adult sons. What’s in those letters, though, is not being made public. The Welch family declined comment for this story and the Utah Highway Patrol isn’t sharing what they call personal. The discovery brought a tragic end to a difficult several weeks for Welch’s family that began on Sept. 2 when they reported him miss-

ing from his home in M a n h at t a n . T h e f a m ily said We l c h , a ret i r e d s a l e s - David Welch m a n , left in a 2000 Pontiac Montana without telling anyone where he was going, said Riley County Police spokesman Matt Droge. Over the next several days, Riley County Police of Kansas did several searches of the area that came up empty. Welch was put in the national missing persons database. As the days went on, the family struggled with not knowing what happened. They posted missing signs around the city and started a Facebook page to bring attention to the search, Droge said. On the Facebook page, “Find Dave Welch,” they asked people to drive two extra blocks each day in

hopes of finding him somewhere in Manhattan. On. Oct. 17, the day before he was found, there was a post written directly to Welch, perhaps in hopes he might read them. “Dear Dave, it has been 7 weeks since you left. Your wife, children

Welch was injured and unable to get out of the van, Riches said. The medical examiner has not yet determined his cause of death. Even if he would have been able to get out, the nearest city, Green River, was about 50 miles west. Thousands of cars sped by on the nearby interstate without a clue — Welch’s van couldn’t be seen from the highway, Riches said. He may never have been found if not for

Allen’s McGee brings home Region VI title Red Devil men are Jayhawk Conference champions By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

HUTCHINSON — Vince DeGrado knew that within the first 20 meters that Denae McGee’s race was, for all intents and purposes, already decided. “She was the favorite,” the Allen Community College cross country coach said. “I told her that. I told her the race was going to go two ways. She was going to leave every-

body behind, or somebody was going to run with her,” at which point it would be a matter of who would have the stronger kick down the stretch. Sure enough, as Monday’s Region Vi/Jayhawk Conference women’s race began, McGee zipped to the front. Nobody pursued. “I knew then it was over,” DeGrado said. McGee, as her coach forecast,

was crowned Region VI and Jayhawk Conference women’s champion — the first individual champion in Allen Community College. She did so in dominating fashion, completing the 4k course in 19 minutes, 38 seconds, a full 34 seconds faster than her nearest pursuer. McGee’s trophy highlighted another successful day on the course See ACC | Page B2

While neither team will advance to the postseason — Iola High was eliminated last week with its 27-13 loss to Fort Scott, and Anderson County High is winless — there is still plenty on the line Thursday when the teams meet for their season finale. First off, the Mustangs must win in order to secure their second consecutive Pioneer League title and second straight winning season. The Bulldogs, meanwhile, want to overcome a season

of struggles and injuries with their young team and end with a win. “Nobody wants to go winless,” Iola head coach Doug Kerr said. “I know they’re going to come out fired up and do everything they can to win.” The Mustangs bring a 4-4 overall record and a 3-1 Pioneer League mark into the Halloween night contest. A win pulls Iola even with Wellsville in league standings, however the Mustangs will be declared league champions because of their See MUSTANGS | Page B3

for ACC athletes. The Red Devil men claimed their second consecutive Jayhawk Conference championship as well, with the top two individuals and four of the top five marks in the conference race. Monday’s meet, hosted by Hutchinson Community College, is unique in that one race serves as both the conference and regional meet. Thus, one brass ring remained just out of reach for the Red Devil men. While they easily won the conference title, they came up one spot short in the Region VI race, behind Colby. “It was a deceptively tough course,” DeGrado said. “And give Colby credit. They brought it. “Sometimes it’s human nature to look at the things you couldn’t quite reach, but it’s important to take a step back and look at the things we’ve accomplished,” DeGrado said. “I was pleased across the board. These athletes competed well. “We have an individual Region VI champion and a two-time conference champion,” he continued. “That’s something that may never happen again, or it may happen next year.

Jayhawk East runners earned all-conference status. “Ryan stepped up and showed us the type of runner we knew he could be all season,” DeGrado said. “Brandon had an off day. This was the first time he wasn’t our number one runner, but he still did well.”

HIGHLIGHTING the Allen men was sophomore Ryan Pulsifer, who finished sixth overall in the men’s 8k with a time of 26:35.8. The time was easily the fastest among Jayhawk East runners, 21 seconds faster than teammate and runner-up Brandon Bernal’s 26:56.8. Bernal took 12th in Region VI.

DEGRADO reflected on Allen’s rapid ascension to be listed among the elite cross country programs in the nation. “We’ve taken a team essentially from scratch and have a program going after regional and national championships,” he said. “That’s a helluva trend.”

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Top prospect Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points in his Allen Fieldhouse debut, leading Kansas to a 97-57 rout of Pittsburg State in its exhibition opener Tuesday night. Wiggins, who many believe will be the No. 1 pick in next year’s NBA draft, got off to an inauspicious start for the Jayhawks when he traveled the first time he touched the ball. Wiggins appeared jittery playing in front of a raucous crowd and struggled to get into rhythm. Then again, new rules against handchecking led to a plethora of fouls, and nobody got into much of a rhythm. The teams combined for 50 fouls and 61 free throws. Wiggins wasn’t without highlights. He made a strong move along the baseline to score his first basket of the game, and then caught an alley-oop pass from Jamari Traylor and slammed it down over the Gorillas’ Trevor Gregory as the crowd roared. Wiggins returned the favor later in the game, throwing up a pass that 7-footer Joel Embiid — another of the Jayhawks’ talented freshmen — threw down over a defender. Perry Ellis had 16 points and eight rebounds, Andrew White III added 12 points and

freshman Brannen Greene finished with 10 for the Jayhawks, who were chosen as co-favorites with Oklahoma State to win the Big 12 for an unprecedented 10th straight season. Devon Branch had 25 points for Pittsburg State and Alex Williams added 15. The Gorillas, a strong Division II program, hung around most of the first half. Josiah Gustafson’s 3-pointer just past the midway point got them within 21-20, and at one point Kansas coach Bill Self irritatingly called a timeout to lay into his defense. Whatever he said in the huddle must have worked. The Jayhawks went on a 12-2 run over the next few minutes, seizing control of the game. The production came from just about everyone in their young but talented lineup, including Wiggins, who started it with a basket and

ended it with his rimrattling dunk. Kansas led 50-32 at halftime, and stretched the lead to 60-36 in the opening minutes of the second half, allowing Self to start tinkering with lineups the rest of the way. He won’t have much time to play around with them. The Jayhawks play Fort Hays State in their final exhibition game next Tuesday, and then open the season against Louisiana Monroe on Nov. 8. But the patsies end in a hurry — after that, the Jayhawks face Duke as part of the Champions Classic in Chicago, and then embark on the rest of a loaded non-conference slate that includes games at Florida and against Georgetown. All before the start of a rugged Big 12 slate. Self announced after the game that Naadir Tharpe, the expected starter at point guard, will be suspended for the season opener Nov. 8 against Louisiana-Monroe for playing in an unauthorized summer league game in Chicago. The school self-reported the violation.

Mustangs: League title on the line Continued from B1

38-20 victory Oct. 11. “Anytime you can play for a title in your final game is big,” Kerr said. “We haven’t lost anybody’s focus, even though we felt like we let one get away last week in Fort Scott.” Anderson County stands at 0-8 overall and 0-4 in Pioneer League. The Bulldogs have had to contend with a small senior and sophomore class, coupled with injuries that have plagued the team for much of the season. Head coach Don Hilliard counted five sophomore starters in one game, and has had as many as eight get regular playing time. “It’s been a tough year for us injury-wise, but that’s not an excuse,” he said. “We knew with our numbers we were going to struggle this year.” Still, the team continues to go all-in, even with a schedule that has featured the likes of regional high school powers Fort Scott, Chanute and St. Mary’s Colgan. “Our league schedule is tough enough to go with those teams,” Hilliard said. “It is what it is.” Anderson County will look to stop Iola’s rushing attack, Hilliard said. “It’s not complicated,” he said. “That’s what we try to do every week. Take away the opponent’s running game and force them to

throw.” Meanwhile, the Bulldog offense will be guided by senior quarterback Zach Hilliard — Coach Hilliard’s son — who has lined up primarily as quarterback, and on occasion, tailback. Hilliard is near 1,000 yards rushing and 700 yards passing for the season. “He’s been, for the most part, our most consistent performer,” Coach Hilliard said. Anderson County has two main targets in its passing game. Senior Ryan Alley averages more than 14 yards per reception. He leads the Bulldogs with 19 catches. Senior Eric Small, meanwhile, also has become a receiving threat, Hilliard said. “Our fullback, Lee Koch, has done some good things as well.” Anderson County’s offense may be one of the toughest to prepare for, Kerr said. “I’ve seen film of four of their games, and they essentially ran four different offenses,” he said. “This week has been essentially working on things we do well. We’ll see what kind of offense they have Thursday, and adjust to it.” THE

Utility shutoffs relaxed TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A rule that prevents utilities from disconnecting Kansas customers during extreme cold takes effect when November arrives. The cold weather rule is enforced by the Kansas Corporation Commission and runs from Friday through March 31. The rule bars utilities from disconnecting electric or natural gas service for nonpayment when temperatures of 35 or lower are forecast for the following 24 hours. Utility companies must offer customers a 12-month payment plan to maintain or re-establish service. Shutoffs must be announced 24 hours in advance, and may be carried out only if the temperature is expected to top 35 degrees for 48 hours.

Legislators conclude tour LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas legislators are winding up a two-week tour of the state’s public colleges and universities with stops at two campuses of the University of Kansas. Members of the House Appropriations and Senate Ways and Means committees began their tour on Oct. 22, as part of a biennial visits to learn more about higher education. The tour ends today with stops at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., and the university’s main campus in Lawrence. Lawmakers submitted dozens of detailed questions to higher education officials about universities' budgeting ahead of the tour, and they’ve received more than 200 pages of answers. But in the past, tours of campuses, prisons and state hospitals have allowed legislators to judge conditions for themselves and talk to workers, inmates and patients.

Missing man found OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — The lawyer for the family of a missing northeast Kansas man says a body found Tuesday matches the description of the man, who has been missing since Sunday. Attorney Henry Cox says Johnson County sheriff's deputies contacted the family of 22-year-old Brad Cook of Olathe on Tuesday to confirm what clothing Cook was wearing when he disappeared. Cox says the clothes on the body found in De Soto match what Cook was wearing. Cox told The Kansas City Star that deputies would not say anything about the cause of death.

Warm knee could indicate infection DEAR DR. ROACH:

This year, I had a partial knee replacement on my right knee. Everything went fine; I have full mobility and I am almost pain-free. However, my right knee is warm to the touch, so I went to the doctor who did the surgery, and he said I have cellulitis and prescribed 10 days of antibiotics. After taking them, my knee was still warm, and he prescribed 10 more days of ciprofloxacin. It is still

Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health warm. He wants me to take 10 more days of ciprofloxacin. Shouldn't this almost month of antibiotics have cured me by now? In your opinion, is this the correct course of action, knowing what you know? — W.B. ANSWER: A partial knee replacement in-

volves putting a prosthesis inside the joint, on one side. Anytime there is a foreign body in a joint, there is a risk of infection. The signs of infection include redness, warmth, swelling and pain, but they don't all have to be present, and inflammation after surgery without infection sometimes can cause these symptoms. =Infection inside a knee can be very difficult to cure. Sometimes, the knee hardware has to be

taken out completely and antibiotics given by vein for up to six weeks. I hope you don't have that. I talked to a colleague who specializes in infectious disease, who was surprised by using the same antibiotic over again. I would recommend a consultation with an infectious disease specialist, who can provide better information on whether the knee could be infected. The surgeon may want to take a fluid sample from the knee.

Heat celebrate, then knock off Chicago By IRA WINDERMAN Sun Sentinal

MIAMI (MCT) — They celebrated 2012-13 before the opening tip. Then they made new memories. Norris Cole crossing over Derrick Rose. Ray Allen with dual pumps fakes and then assisting on a Chris Bosh 3-pointer. Allen then following up with a 3-pointer of his own, from THAT corner. LeBron James feeding Chris Andersen for an alley-oop dunk. Shane Battier scoring off the dribble. A 31-5 surge. And that was just the first half of the first game in what the Miami Heat hope is the beginning of the run to a third consecutive NBA championship. Opening night couldn’t have gone much better, save for a bit of a late letup, with the Heat closing with a 107-95 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena, an opening night that resonated from the pregame pyrotechnics to the thrill-show theatrics that followed. “You never know what to expect when you’re trying to keep the main thing the main thing, and that’s the game,” coach Erik Spoelstra said. “But you can’t deny the moment. “It was great to actually get the win after that.” It appeared it was going to be a blowout, as the Heat pushed to a 25-point lead early in the fourth quarter before a late letdown. That forced Spoelstra to reinsert his starters, after the bench

Includes Skinning Processing Deer Now For Bowhunters The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade (3) goes to the basket in the fourth quarter against the Chicago Bulls at AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami Tuesday. The Heat won, 107-95. PEDRO PORTAL/EL NEUVO HERALD/MCT had boosted the Heat earlier. A few timely shots later and it was decided. “Guys hung in there,” Spoelstra said. The nine-man core that led the Heat to last season’s championship all had their moments, as the 2013-14 newcomers watched how it’s done. “That was one of our more mature, teamoriented games,” Spoelstra said. “It was more about a team attack, the ball would find the open player. “I like the flow.” Udonis Haslem, an old-school starter if ever there was one, opening the scoring. Battier loaded up with four 3-pointers on the way to 14 points, picking up where he left off in Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs. Chris Andersen had eight rebounds, consis-

tently moving into open position for scores at the rim. Allen had six assists at the intermission, closing with a Heat-careerhigh seven, as well as 11 points. Mario Chalmers and Cole more than held their own against Rose, who finally returned from his devastating 2012 playoff injury. Chalmers’ five steals in the first half were a Heat opening-night record. Chalmers finished with 13 points and four assists, Cole with 11 points and seven rebounds. Rose closed with 12 points on 4-of-15 shooting, four assists and five turnovers in 34 minutes. “When we weren’t throwing it to them, we were making the right plays,” Spoelstra said, lamenting the Heat’s 20 turnovers that led to 30 Bulls points. On this night, the Big Three essentially were

the supporting players. James closed with 17 points, eight assists and six rebounds. Bosh added 16 points and five rebounds, making his final six shots. And Dwyane Wade, working his way back from his postseason knee issues, struggled to 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting. No matter, with the Heat’s depth ultimately shredding what was supposed to be a bolstered Bulls bench. No, this wasn’t the best of the Big Three, but it didn’t have to be, not with Luol Deng and Jimmy Butler dealing with early foul trouble, even with Carlos Boozer providing plenty of points and Joakim Noah plenty of rebounds for Chicago. Boozer closed with 31 points on 13-of18 shooting, with Noah adding a game-high 11 rebounds but only two points on 1-of-4 shooting.
