Strong debut for Iola-to-Chanute race By SUSAN LYNN

Sue Dispensa, 43, credits a strong support system for seeing her through her first marathon in Saturday morning’s Portland Alley Marathon. Dispensa, Chanute, ran the hilly backroads from Chanute to

Iola in 3 hours, 56 minutes, making her the first female to complete the marathon. “I couldn’t have done it without my crew,” she said of friends of family who were placed along the 26.2-mile course, cheering her on. Meanwhile for Dann Fisher

of Manhattan, the race was old hat. It was Fisher’s 150th “or so,” marathon. Fisher, 49, completed the course in 3 hours, 20 minutes. “I loved the course,” he said. “It was beautiful running along See MARATHON | Page A4

Police stand aside as nationalists rally By SERGIO L. LOIKO Los Angeles Times

MOSCOW — More than 5,000 young nationalist protesters took to the streets of the Russian capital on Russia’s annual Day of National Unity holiday Sunday, denouncing President Vladimir Putin and demanding his ouster. Carrying imperial Russian black, yellow and white flags, and wearing Cossack uniforms including black boots, hoods and masks, they marched peacefully for four miles along the Moscow River before rallying in front of Gorky Park. In contrast to many previous liberal opposition rallies, the march was allowed by the Moscow government and police stood aside. Police didn’t display clubs and shields and didn’t provoke demonstrators the way they had done at past rallies. Yet the attitude of the authorities did not prevent the crowd from also chanting that Putin was “an enemy whose place is in prison” for ignoring the interests of the Russian nation and allowing migrants to work and live in Russia. One demonstrator near the front of the march carried a poster that read: “Putin is better than Hitler?” In recent years, the Kremlin has continued to court Russian nationalists despite a significant transformation of their agenda, said Andrei Piontkovsky, a senior researcher of the System Analysis Institute, a Moscow-based think tank. “Putin’s idea of suiting Russian nationalism with his ongoing effort to restore the might of the Russian empire and to advance beyond the Caucasus and even claiming

They want to get rid of the troublesome North Caucasus and its inhabitants they refuse to acknowledge as Russian citizens.”

The Iola Register



Election presents tough challenges to whomever wins When Mitt Romney or Barack Obama open their election box to see what they’ve won, they may quickly shut the lid and cry for a recount. President Obama will deal with the fiscal cliff, regardless. He will be in charge until Jan. 20, win or lose. But the fiscal challenges will remain. A new tax structure must be created; a new budget tailored to fit the revenue to be collected must be made. Both must have integrity: that is, the tax structure must be acceptable to the people and must generate enough revenue to provide a path to a balanced budget and debt reduction and the budgets to come must be created with that end clearly in view. Whoever is president, whichever party controls Congress, must adopt economic policies that will bolster longterm growth. That imperative is most likely to be achieved if the next administration puts the brightest economists it can hire in charge. Ideological road maps are most likely to take the country over the cliff rather than down the road to a stronger economy. About 12.3 million Americans still are unemployed. The middle class is struggling. Only long-term answers will meet these challenges. The next administration must do what can be done to prepare America’s workers for the jobs today’s world economy produces. This demand is directly tied in to the need to increase middle class family income and reduce the yawning gap between

the rich and the rest. Today 1 percent of the people control 20 percent of the wealth — that is a moral abomination that represents a serious threat to our democracy. A better answer to the health care crisis must be at the top of the next president’s agenda. It is a crisis because the U.S. spends about 17 percent of its gross national product on health care and still has about 50 million of us uninsured. The burden will only grow larger as the population ages unless the system is rebuilt and administrative costs are greatly reduced. Coming up with an efficient, effective universal health care delivery system will be one of the biggest challenges the president — either one of them — will face. President 2013 must also end the war in Afghanistan — already the longest war in U.S. history — without obligating the U.S. to accept any further responsibility for that nation’s future. Ending the war will begin a discussion on future military policy and future military spending. At present, the United States of America spends more on its military than do the next 17 largest countries. Should that enormous difference be continued? Reduced? Increased? The next president must answer the question. Those are just the biggest, ugliest, unsolved problems that will be dumped in President Whoever’s lap come Jan. 20. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

Sandy’s good side It’s an ill wind that blows no one good, sailors say — and economists agree. Hurricane Sandy did an estimated $50 billion in property damage along the east coast, mostly in New Jersey and the coastline around New York City. The devastation offers opportunity. As soon as the rescue and cleanup crews leave, construction companies will move in to repair, rebuild and replace. The billions of losses will be offset to some extent by billions in construction costs and in retail sales growing from the need to replace clothes, furniture, cars and the long, long list of damaged or destroyed possessions. Because the damage was so great, the amount that insurance companies will pay and victims must shell out from

savings and borrowings will also be huge. Big enough, economists predict, that the economy will get a modest but significant boost. State and local governments will add to the stimulus by spending on damaged roads and bridges and, in the longer term, preparing for the next storm in ways that will limit the damage it will cause. New York and New Jersey were hit hardest and can expect to see the biggest boost. Unemployment will drop in those states. The hardest hit areas will seize the opportunity to replace destroyed areas in creative ways. It will be many months away, but the post-Sandy Atlantic coast will rise better than the one the storm surge left in ruins. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

Republican tax priorities If Congressional Republicans get their way, expiring cuts in the estate tax for America’s wealthiest families will be extended in 2013. But under their cruel plan, enhancements to tax credits for low- and moderate-income working families, which are also set to expire at the end of the year, would end. Extending the estate tax cut would benefit the estates of the wealthiest 0.3 percent of Americans who die in 2013 — about 7,000 people. Ending the tax credits would hurt some 13 million working families, including nearly 26 million children, many of whom live at or near the poverty line. Republicans in the House have already approved legislation — and similar legislation has been introduced in the Senate — that would undo a compromise tax plan approved in 2010. Back then, Republicans demanded estate tax cuts in exchange for extending the bolstered earned-income tax credits and child tax credits for working families that had been part of the 2009 stimulus. Under duress, the Obama administration agreed to temporarily raise the value of an estate that would be exempt from tax to $5 million ($10 million for married couples) from $3.5 million ($7 million for couples), the level in 2009. It also agreed to cut the top estate tax rate to 35 percent

Extending the estate tax — or the death tax, as Republicans like to call it — would benefit the estates of the wealthiest 0.3 percent of Americans who die in 2013 — about 7,000 people. While ending the tax credits would hurt some 13 million working families, including nearly 26 million children, many of whom live at or near the poverty line. from 45 percent. In exchange for that tax cut, Republicans agreed to preserve improvements to the earned-income tax credit and child credit that help to ensure that low-income working families with children do not fall below the poverty line. Now, with another year-end showdown looming over expiring tax cuts, Republicans want to keep the generous provisions for the estate tax and end the enhancements to the working family tax credits. THE WINNERS would be the few and the wealthy: the Tax Policy Center has estimated that the estate tax breaks save wealthy heirs an average of $1.1 million per estate, compared with the 2009 estate tax law. The losers would be the many and the hard pressed: a married couple with three children and earnings at the estimated poverty line ($27,713) would lose $1,934 in tax credits in 2013,

according to a study by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. The divide is especially noteworthy in the swing states. In Florida, 900 estates would get an estate-tax break, while nearly one million Florida families, with 1.7 million children, would see a tax increase. In Ohio, 140 estates would get a tax cut, while nearly 500,000 families, with nearly one million children, would face higher taxes. In Virginia, 220 estates would get a tax break, compared with 275,000 working families, with nearly 500,000 children, that would have their taxes rise. The heirs of the wealthiest people in America do not need continued tax breaks, nor can the nation afford the giveaway. Low- and moderate-income working Americans need all the help they can get. That is not the way Republicans see it, but that is the way it is. — The New York Times

A look back in time 50 Years Ago October-November, 1962

Oct. 11 — A proposed countywide levy, of not more than 1.5 mills, to support the Iola Junior College will be submitted to Allen County’s citizens at the general election. County Commissioners, after conferring with Ennor Horine, superintendent of schools, and Klein Boyd, president of the board of education, agreed to submit the proposition to the voters. If the levy is approved, the county will appoint a six-member advisory board of regents to confer with the board of education on college policies. The law authorizing county-wide support of junior colleges was enacted in 1957. Horine points out that many of the 253 young men and women enrolled in the Iola Junior College do not live in school district 10. ***** Nov. 2 — Humboldt residents began getting mail Wednesday morning from their brand new post office at 811 New York St. Postmaster Helen Lacy and her crew completed the move from the old building at Seventh and Bridge late Tuesday, in time to put out Wednesday’s mail from the new location with no interruption of service. 3 — Bids for the erection of the Thomas H. Bowlus Fine Arts Center have been accepted and construction should begin in the near future, the Allen County State Bank, trustee of the trust fund, reported this morning.

***** The 1962 Allen County Fair made a profit of $917.38, H. J. Nicholson, secretary, reported today. The exposition also closed its 1961 season in the black, although in recent decades the fair has lost money more often than it has earned a profit. ***** 6 — Plans for a science and home economics building for Iola Senior High and a new wing for the Lincoln Elementary School were approved last night by the Board of Education. The structures are being designed by Brink and Dunwoody, architects and engineers. Last spring the voters approved a $325,000 bond issue to finance the science unit and $120,000 to finance the wing at Lincoln. ***** 7 — TOPEKA (AP) — Kansas Republicans swept all state and national races Tuesday in an expected victory. Given new terms were Sens. Frank Carlson and James B. Pearson, Gov. John Anderson. Rep. J. Floyd Breeding, the state’s only Democratic congressman for the past two years, was defeated by Rep. Robert Dole, Republican, in the new 1st District. Their previous districts were consolidated by reapportionment. Joe Skubitz, Republican, won in the new 5th Congressional District. ***** In yesterday’s election, Allen County gave Republicans the majority vote. The one excep-

tion was Norene Hobart, Moran school teacher, who defeated Mildred Cooksey, Iola, for superintendent of schools, 2,807 to 2,255. Robert Finney, Humboldt, was elected representative to the state Legislature from this district, defeating Jack Jordon by 900 votes. George Brinkman, Humboldt Republican, nosed out Charles Lash, Elsmore Democrat, for commissioner from the first district, 770 to 717. The vote in other county contests: county clerk: Anderson 2,630, Abbott 2,411; county treasurer: Eisenbrandt 2,838, Voisinet 2,251; sheriff: Lorance 2,863, Fowler 2,273; coroner: Pees 3,511, Lenski 1,585; clerk of the district court: Smith 3,232, Evans 1,815. ***** 9 — The proposal to establish a 1.5-mill county-wide tax levy to help support the Iola Junior College carried after all. An official canvass of the votes today revealed a 42 margin of yes votes. It was thought the issue was defeated by 58 votes, 2,353 yes to 2,411 no. ***** 14 — Moody Ralston, 74, who has been a mortician in Allen County for over 50 years, died last evening in a hospital in Springfield, Mo., while on a trip to Gainsville, Mo. He started an undertaking business in Elsmore in 1911 and opened the Ralston Funeral Home in Moran in 1925. In 1962, Ralston sold his funeral home to Kendall Hutton and associates, but continued to assist in the business until his death.

Allen County residents can now give U.S. troops the gift of communication. The “Cell Phones for Troops” initiative is set up for donations in Iola. Drop boxes for gently used cell phones and chargers are available at Iola Pharmacy and at Mark Alexander’s residence at 503 N. Jefferson. No car-chargers are needed. Monetary dona-

tions are accepted as well. The “Cell Phones for Troops” program was founded in 2004 with the goal of helping troops contact their families. Along with AT&T, 2.9 million free minutes have been donated to troops. In Afghanistan, one minute of phone-time costs $3.99. The program will continue as long as any troops are overseas.

THE HUMBOLDT students have a passion for the process, and for getting information to their student body. Stevie Barfoot, the online editor-in-chief for the class, said the work environment more resembles a real newspaper than a classroom. “It’s a lot more relaxed than other environments,” Barfoot said. “But we still work hard and get our stuff done.” Isbell said she sees herself as more of a “coach” than a teacher. She said she has a working relationship with the students, and she is learning new things every day as well. She said her program has sent many students into the field of journalism, but be-

lieves the program teaches much more than a trade. “It is not just journalism, it builds more wellrounded skills,” Isbell said. “They learn teamwork, multi-tasking and a lot of other things. They can be successful at anything.” It seems the paper can be successful at anything as well. Isbell said the paper has faced some challenges in its past. In 2005, state government looked to pull the funding that goes to programs like Humboldt’s journalism program. The funding, which came from the Career and Technical Education (CTE) aspect of the school, was being pulled due to what legislators cited as a lack of interest for the field of journalism. State legislators eventually decided to maintain funding the programs, but Isbell said the program would have kept going if

“ It is not just journalism, it builds more well-

rounded skills. They learn teamwork, multitasking and a lot of other things. They can be successful at anything. — Kim Isbell, instructor

they had taken their funds. She said the students care too much for journalism and they could have relied on advertising funds to carry them on. Situations such as this one showcase the confidence that has grown throughout the classroom. Overall, the paper has endured budget cuts and a dwindling economy to remain as what Barfoot describes an essential tradition of Humboldt High. “When we start handing out the papers, students start to swarm us,” Barfoot said. “They want to see themselves in the paper.”

Now the students will be able to see themselves on the web as well. Barfoot said Cub Tracks Online is currently running, but just needs some “kinks” worked out. The Humboldt journalism team will compete in regionals for KSPA at Pittsburg State University in February and then the state competition in May at the University in Kansas in Lawrence. Before then, the students will attend the Journalism Education Association’s annual convention for high school students in San Antonio, Nov. 15-18.

Romney, for his part, has appeared more relaxed on the campaign trail, where he’s been joined by most of his longtime senior aides. Much of the planning and strategy is finished, they say, and they wanted to spend the final days of the campaign at Romney’s side. Adviser Kevin Madden said Romney was spending much of his time working on his laptop, reading and writing in his journal. The Republican candidate also recently joined his aides in an hour-and-a-half discussion about their favorite movies. Romney’s? “O Brother, Where Art Thou,” which stars Obama pal George Clooney.

As aides for both candidates looked for early marks of success, there were signs for the superstitious. Since 1936, with only one exception, whenever the Washington Redskins won on the Sunday before the election, the incumbent party would retain the White House. On Sunday, the Redskins lost to the Carolina Panthers, giving hope to Republicans. But the Obama camp often compares this election to 2004, when President George W. Bush held the White House in his race against Democrat John Kerry. That year was the exception to the rule; the Redskins lost, and so did Kerry.

price,” he said. At stops, Obama has been telling crowds, “If you want to break the gridlock in Congress, you’ll vote for leaders who feel the same way, whether they are Democrats or Republicans or independents.” But the local candidates he often cites are inevitably Democrats. As the race approached its conclusion, the two candidates engaged in their own personal moments with friends and close aides, an acknowledgement that no matter who won, this was the end of the campaign. Longtime Obama chums Mike Ramos, a childhood

friend from Hawaii, and Marty Nesbitt, a friend from Chicago, joined the president on Air Force One. Today, longtime adviser and former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs and former personal aide Reggie Love were to join the entourage. Aboard Air Force One, the president also was making calls to Democratic candidates to wish them well, including Senate contender Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts. Obama will also benefit from some star power today. Rock legend Bruce Springsteen is joining him at all three campaign rallies, and rapper Jay-Z will join them in Columbus.

20 cities make cut in NYC contest Boy dies, dog attack at zoo NEW YORK (AP) — In a big-city mayor’s bid to spur colleagues to think boldly around the country, 20 cities from Chicago to Springfield, Ore., are finalists in a $9 million urbaninnovation contest created by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The cities, which came up with novel ideas for tackling issues as disparate as recycling and infant mortality, were to be announced today by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the billionaire mayor’s personal foundation. The list is being unveiled as Bloomberg himself grapples with the unprecedented challenges that Superstorm Sandy created in New York City. The finalists, picked from more than 300 applicants, will get to hone their proposals and compete for a $5 million grand prize and four $1 million awards. St. Paul, Minn., wants to create the TurboTax of permit-application systems. Lafayette, La., is seeking to create games around civic behavior. Phoenix wants to create “smart-energy districts.” Cincinnati wants to have community health workers visit every new mother in the city’s poorest ZIP codes, in hopes of reducing infant mortality. Houston officials had brainstormed for years about taking the task of sorting recyclables out of the hands of residents — or anyone. The city has been disappointed in recycling rates in some areas but wasn’t keen on having sanitation workers do the separating instead.

The idea that made Houston a finalist: Let people throw everything — trash, recyclables, yard trimmings — into one bin and meld a range of technologies to sort it all out automatically. While the idea has been tried in pieces and on smaller scales, “this is an opportunity for us to test and see whether the technology is scalable for what we would need for a major city,” Mayor Annise Parker said by phone.

It really created an energy here that, honestly, I haven’t seen before. A lot of times in local government, unless people are mad, they don’t show up. — Mayor Tom Barrett

By JENNIFER PELTZ Associated Press

Milwaukee turned Bloomberg’s competition into a mini-contest of its own, asking residents and community groups to submit ideas. The city got about 120 proposals, picked 10 to be presented at City Hall, and was pleasantly surprised to see more than 100 people turn up to hear them, Mayor Tom Barrett said. “It really created an energy here that, honestly, I haven’t seen before,” he said by phone. “A lot of times in local government, unless people are mad, they don’t show up.” The process produced a plan to tackle two problems — home foreclo-

sures and a lack of fresh produce in some neighborhoods — by fostering agriculture and homesteading on many of Milwaukee’s 4,000 city-owned vacant lots and foreclosed homes. People who would work the vacant land or improve the empty homes would get the property for free. In Lexington, Ky., the experience of getting 440 ideas from citizens turned into an idea in itself: an ongoing system that analyzes data on how the city is doing and invites volunteers to suggest solutions and even implement them. “Giving the people more of a say is challenging for elected officials,” Mayor Jim Gray said in a statement, but “the democratic fabric is stronger when democratic processes are encouraged.” While government associations often seek to highlight and share good ideas, Bloomberg’s competition adds the prospect of seven-figure prizes to start putting the concepts into practice. Various other private foundations also work with local governments, often on specific topics. Bloomberg’s grants are directed at improving municipal government itself, in whatever way the cities chose. Called the Mayor’s Challenge, the contest invited cities of 30,000 people or more to propose ideas that would address a major social or economic issue, make it easier for residents or businesses to deal with city government, increase efficiency, or enhance accountability and public participation — or all of the above.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A mother’s attempt to give her 2-year-old son a better view of wild African dogs turned into a fatal tragedy after the boy fell into the exhibit and was attacked by a pack of the animals as relatives and bystanders looked on. The mother had picked the child up and put him on top of a railing at the edge of a viewing deck at the Pittsburgh Zoo late Sunday morning, Lt. Kevin Kraus of the Pittsburgh police said. “Almost immediately after that he lost his balance, fell down off the railing into the pit, and he was immediately attacked by 11 dogs,” Kraus said. “It was very horrific.” It’s not yet clear whether the boy died from the fall or the attack, said Barbara Baker, president of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium. Zoo officials at first estimated the boy fell 14 feet, but police said it was 11. It’s not clear which is correct. The Allegheny County medical examiner planned an autopsy today, and the boy’s name was not expected to be released until that was complete. Authorities said that zoo staff and then police responded “within minutes,” but visitors described that time as being filled with screams for help. Zookeepers called off some of the dogs, and seven of them immediately went to a back building. Three more eventually were drawn away from the child, but the last dog was aggressive and police had to shoot the animal. Steve Feldman, a spokesman for the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, said no one he’s spoken to can recall any deaths of children at an accredited zoo over the last 40 years or more. Feldman

said the Pittsburgh Zoo successfully completed its 5-year review in September, which means it meets or exceeds all safety standards. Authorities didn’t release the name of the woman, but say she is 34 years old and lives in Pleasant Hills, just outside Pittsburgh. The boy’s father arrived on the scene soon after the accident, police said. The zoo was immediately

closed, and it was not clear when it will reopen, authorities said. The attack happened in a 1.5 acre exhibit called the Painted Dog Bush Camp that’s part of a larger open area where elephants, lions and other animals can be seen. Visitors walk onto a deck that is glassed on the sides, but open in front where the roughly four-foot railing is located.

High school playoff road reaches bitter end Hanover scores often in win over Lancers HANOVER – A 30-point outburst by Hanover High put Crest High’s Lancers in a hole too deep to escape Saturday. The Wildcats poured on the offense, turning a 16-6 lead after one quarter into a 46-18 cushion at the break. Hanover continued its offensive explosion in the second half in an 80-30 win. The loss ends the Lancers’ season at 7-4. Kyle Hammond’s storied high school career ended with the loss. Hammond rushed for 127 yards and two touchdowns, while throwing for 165 yards and two more scores. Jordan Morton was his primary target, catching eight passes for 117 yards, including a 41-yard touchdown. Brock Ellis hauled in four catches for 38 yards. Hammond and Clayton Miller shared the team honors with 14 tackles apiece. Miller also registered a sack. Codi Vermillion had nine stops. Jesse Boone had eight tackSee CREST | Page B4

Marmaton Valley falls at home to Rock Hills By RICHARD LUKEN

MORAN — For the first 7½ minutes of their playoff game Saturday, Marmaton Valley High could do little wrong. A pair of run-fueled drives powered the Wildcats to an early 16-0 lead over visiting Rock Hills-Mankato. That trend changed in a hurry. In Rock Hills’ next nine snaps from scrimmage, the Grizzlies scored five touchdowns, turning that 16-point deficit into a 38-22 lead. Marmaton Valley responded with much of the same spirit that led the team to a 10-0 record leading into Saturday’s tilt, but Rock Hills had an answer for every challenge. The Grizzlies defeated Marmaton Valley’s 76-48 in the second round of the Kansas Eight Man, Division I playoffs. The loss ends the Wildcats’ season at 10-1. “They were able to capitalize on all of our mistakes, and we couldn’t do the same,” Wildcat head coach Kent Houk said. “We had some trouble fighting off their blocks.” “They did what few teams could do — stop our run,” added Daylen Houk, Coach Houk’s son and a senior running back. Daylen Houk aggravated a knee injury in his first carry of the game and saw limited action. A PAIR of turnovers, coupled with big plays from Grizzlies sophomore speedster Joel Broeckelman ignited Rock Hills after Marmaton Valley jumped out to its early lead. Broeckelman returned a kickoff to the Marmaton Valley 16 following the Wildcats’ second touchdown, which led to a score one play later on a run by the Grizzlies’ Aaron Broeckelman. A delay of game penalty on fourth down thwarted the Wildcats’ next drive. Joel Broeckelman returned with a 25-yard touchdown run two plays later to cut the lead to 16-14. The Grizzlies retook pos-

Turnovers doom Humboldt in 63-28 loss to Colgan By RICHARD LUKEN

PITTSBURG — Humboldt High’s Cubs had lived by the pass all season, setting a litany of school records en route to the Class 3A playoffs. On Saturday, the Cubs died by it. Host St. Mary’s Colgan High of Pittsburg turned the tide against Humboldt in a disastrous second quarter in which Cub quarterback Nathan Whitcomb was picked off four times. Colgan turned a 14-14 tie into a 49-14 lead by the latter moments of the opening half. Humboldt scored in the final minute of the second quarter, but could not cut the gap within three touchdowns in the second half of a 63-28 loss. The defeat ends Humboldt’s season at 8-3. “Offensively we played really, really well between the 25-yard lines. We just could not finish See HUMBOLDT | Page B4

Klein injured, K-State goes to 9-0 MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Collin Klein piled up more than 300 yards of offense before leaving in the third quarter with an undisclosed injury, and No. 3 Kansas State remained unbeaten with a 44-30 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday night. Klein had thrown for 245 yards and run for 64 more before sneaking in for his 50th career rushing touch-

down with 9:47 left in the third quarter. The Heisman Trophy front-runner didn’t return to the field on the Wildcats’ next offensive series. Allen Chapman picked off three passes and returned one 29 yards for a touchdown, John Hubert had a pair of TD runs, and Tyler Lockett returned a kickoff 100 yards for another score as Kansas State

kept alive its hopes of playing for a national championship. The Wildcats entered the weekend No. 2 in the BCS standings behind Alabama. Clint Chelf finished 16 of 27 for 233 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys (5-3, 3-2),. Chapman’s interception return for a touchdown made it 31-17 at halftime.

Baylor pulls away from Hawks WACO, Texas (AP) — Nick Florence threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns, running back Lache Seastrunk had 194 total yards and Baylor won its first Big 12 game of the season, beating Kansas 4114 Saturday. Baylor (4-4, 1-4) led 20-14 at halftime before pulling away in the second half to snap a four-game losing streak.

Florence was 26 of 42 and surpassed 3,000 yards passing for the season. The senior had touchdown passes of 11, 68 and 40 yards. James Sims had 126 rushing yards for Kansas (1-8, 0-6), which lost its eighth in a row and 18th straight Big 12 game. The Jayhawks last won a conference game on Nov. 6, 2010, against Colorado,

now of the Pac-12. Glasco Martin rushed for 157 yards and Terrance Williams had 11 catches for 137 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown on Baylor’s opening drive. After Ahmad Dixon intercepted a pass at the Kansas 40, Florence had a 7-yard TD run to extend Baylor’s lead to 34-14 with 2:24 remaining in the third quarter.

Falling temps add urgency to recovery By JOCELYN NOVECK and MICHAEL RUBINKAM Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — Storm victims went to church Sunday to pray for deliverance as cold weather settling in across the New York metropolitan area — and another drenching in the forecast — added to the misery of people already struggling with gasoline shortages and power outages. Hundreds of parishioners in parkas, scarves and boots packed the pews and stood in the aisles for Mass at a chilly Church of St. Rose in stormravaged Belmar, N.J., where the floodwaters had receded but the streets were slippery with strong-smelling mud. Firefighters and police officers sat in the front rows and drew applause. Roman Catholic Bishop David O’Connell said he had no good answer for why God would allow the destruction that Superstorm Sandy caused. But he assured parishioners: “There’s more good, and there’s more joy, and there’s more happiness in life than there is the opposite. And it will be back. And we will be back.” With temperatures dipping into the 30s overnight and close to 700,000 homes and businesses in New York City, its northern suburbs and Long Island still without electricity six days after the storm, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned that many homes are becoming uninhabitable and that tens of thousands of people are going to need other places to stay. Over the weekend, the city opened warming shelters in

“ Well, the first storm flooded me out, and

my landlord tells me there’s a big crack in the ceiling, so I guess there’s a chance this storm could do more damage. I was hoping to get back in there sooner rather than later, but it doesn’t look good. — John Lewis

areas without power and Mayor Michael Bloomberg urged elderly people without heat to move to them. The city also began handing out 25,000 blankets to those who insisted on staying in their homes. “Please, I know sometimes people are reticent to take advantage of services. The cold really is something that is dangerous,” Bloomberg said. Staten Island resident Sara Zavala had no power and was relying on a propane heater, but she was using it only during the day. She didn’t want to go to sleep with it running at night. “When I woke up, I was like, ‘It’s freezing.’ And I thought, ‘This can’t go on too much longer,’” Zavala said. “And whatever this is we’re breathing in, it can’t be good for you. Mildew and chemicals and gasoline.” A rainy storm was in the forecast for the middle of the week, worrying those who got slammed by Sandy. “Well, the first storm flooded me out, and my landlord tells me there’s a big crack in the ceiling, so I guess there’s a chance this storm could do more damage,” John Lewis said at a shelter in New Rochelle,

N.Y. “I was hoping to get back in there sooner rather than later, but it doesn’t look good.” After the abrupt cancellation of Sunday’s New York City Marathon, some of those who had been planning to run the 26.2-mile race through the city streets instead headed to hard-hit Staten Island to volunteer to help storm victims. Thousands of other runners from such countries as Italy, Germany and Spain poured into Central Park to hold impromptu races of their own. A little more than four laps through the park amounted to a marathon. “A lot of people just want to finish what they’ve started,” said Lance Svendsen, organizer of a group called Run Anyway. Though New York and New Jersey bore the brunt of the destruction, at its peak the storm reached 1,000 miles across, killed more than 100 people in 10 states, knocked out power to 8.5 million homes and businesses and canceled nearly 20,000 flights. Damage has been estimated at $50 billion, making Sandy the second most expensive storm in U.S. history, behind Hurricane Katrina.

SEATTLE (AP) — The U.S. soldier accused of carrying out one of the worst atrocities of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars is due to appear in a military courtroom today, where prosecutors will for the first time lay out their case that he slaughtered 16 people, including children, during a predawn raid on two villages in the Taliban's heartland. Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, a married father of two from Lake Tapps, Wash., is accused of slipping away from a remote outpost in southern Afghanistan early on March 11 with an M-4 rifle outfitted with a grenade launcher to attack the villages of Balandi and Alkozai, in the dangerous Panjwai district of Kandahar Province. The massacre left 16 dead — nine of them children, and 11 of them members of the same family. Six others were wounded, and some of the bodies were set afire. Today marks the start of a preliminary hearing, called an Article 32 hearing, before an investigative officer charged with recommending whether Bales’ case should proceed to a court-martial. The hearing is scheduled to run as long as two weeks, and part of it will be held overnight to allow video testimony from witnesses in Afghanistan. “This hearing is important for all of us in terms of learning what the government can actually prove,” said Bales' attorney, John Henry Browne. “The defense’s job is to get as much information as possible. That’s what our

goal is, in preparation for what is certainly going to be a court martial.” Bales, 39, is an Ohio native who joined the Army in late 2001 — after the 9/11 attacks — as his career as a stockbroker imploded. An arbitrator entered a $1.5 million fraud judgment against him and his former company that went unpaid, and his attempt to start an investment firm in Florida also failed. He was serving his fourth combat tour after

added, “We believe it’s much broader than that.” One thing is clear: Bales himself will not make any statements, his lawyers said, because they don’t think he would have anything to gain by it. During Article 32 hearings, defendants have the right to make sworn or unsworn statements. Making a sworn statement opens the defendant to cross-examination by the prosecutors. No motive has emerged. Bales’ wife, Karilyn, who

three stints in Iraq, and his arrest prompted a national discussion about the stresses posed by multiple deployments. Another of his civilian attorneys, Emma Scanlan, spent the past week at Joint Base Lewis-McChord to prepare for the hearing. She declined to say to what extent the lawyers hope to elicit testimony that could be used to support a mental-health defense. Bales faces 16 counts of premeditated murder, plus other charges of attempted murder, assault and using steroids. Prosecutors have kept mum about the evidence they plan to present. Scanlan said she expects them “to try to narrow the issues to the events of 10 March and 11 March,” but

plans to attend the hearing, had complained about financial difficulties on her blog in the year before the killings, and she had noted that Bales was disappointed at being passed over for a promotion. Browne described those stresses as garden-variety — nothing that would prompt such a massacre — and has also said, without elaborating, that Bales suffered a traumatic incident during his second Iraq tour that triggered “tremendous depression.” Bales remembers little or nothing from the time of the attacks, his lawyers have said. The hearing will also feature the airing, for the first time publicly, of a surveillance blimp video that depicts Bales return-

ing to Camp Belambay and surrendering. Testimony from witnesses, including an estimated 10 to 15 Afghans, could also help fill in many of the details about how prosecutors believe Bales carried out the attack. American officials have said they believe Bales broke the slaughter into two episodes — walking first to one village, returning to the base and slipping away again to carry out the second attack. Members of the Afghan delegation that investigated the killings said one Afghan guard saw a U.S. soldier return to the base around 1:30 a.m. Another Afghan soldier who replaced the first guard said he saw a U.S. soldier leave the base at 2:30 a.m. Some witnesses suggested that there might have been more than one killer. Browne said he was aware of those statements, but noted that such a scenario would not help his client avoid culpability. Browne is traveling to Afghanistan to question the witnesses in person as their testimony from a small base near Kandahar city is beamed back to Lewis-McChord. Scanlan said the Army had only recently turned over a preliminary DNA trace evidence report from the crime scenes, but defense experts have not had time to review it. Bales, who spent months in confinement at Fort Leavenworth, before being transferred to Lewis-McChord last month, is doing well, Scanlan said. “He’s getting prepared,” she said, “but it’s nervewracking for anybody.”

Black rings around neck associated with diabetes Dear Drs. Donohue and Roach: My granddaughter

has had diabetes and a fatty liver since she was young. She is 16, overweight and refuses to exercise. She has black rings around her throat. I've been told it’s from the diabetes not being properly controlled. Also, I’ve noticed a dark tinge to the skin around her shoulders under the arms. — A.C.G. Answer: It sounds like your granddaughter has acanthosis nigricans, a skin condition strongly associated with diabetes — specifically with type II diabetes, the kind where the problem is resistance to insulin, not a total lack of insulin, as it is in type I diabetes. Type II used to be called “adult onset” or “noninsulin requiring.” However, more frequently, adolescents and even children are being diagnosed with type II dia-

betes, and some people with type II require insulin. Acanthosis nigricans happens most commonly in the nape of the neck, the underarms and the groin, but in more severe cases, it can include areas around the eyes or around joints. It is important to know that this darkening of the skin (often associated with a thicker, velvet-like texture of the skin) has nothing to do with hygiene, and does not even necessarily relate to diabetes control. It relates to the degree of insulin re-

sistance (the amount of insulin needed to reduce blood sugar is much greater in a person with type II diabetes than in a person without it), and is more common in darker-skinned people. Being overweight almost always increases insulin resistance, so losing weight usually improves the dark pigmentation. More importantly, weight loss can reduce the fatty liver, reduce the amount of medication needed and make exercise easier. But weight loss can be very, very hard to accom-

plish, and particularly so for adolescents. I cannot overemphasize the social stigma some adolescent girls feel when they are overweight, and combined with a serious condition like diabetes, it can have a devastating effect on these young women. A family that is accepting, supportive and encouraging can make all the difference. Helping her choose a better diet and get some exercise — even if it’s inside the house, if she is uncomfortable getting out — likewise can begin to turn around this problem. Working with her doctor and honestly discussing her body-shape issue is important, as many diabetes medicines make losing weight harder — and a few, such as metformin (Glucophage and others) and exenatide (Byetta and others) make weight loss easier.

After loved one dies, take life one day at a time Dear Carolyn: The love of my life was killed last weekend in a car accident. I am lost. What do I even begin to do? Everyone’s asking me what I need, and I don’t even know. My head is full of questions. What am I going to do now that the future I planned is gone? Where do I even sit at the funeral? His parents are beyond kind, but there is no official role for the girlfriend. And I’m afraid to think about him or my future. I’m afraid that if I let go I’ll fall into a deep, dark well that I may never come out of. I am meeting with a grief counselor today. Any thoughts on books or things that have worked for people? I don’t know what else to do. — Bereft

Oh, I am so sorry. The only answer to, “What do I do?” is this: Get by. You don’t need to accomplish anything, answer anything, figure out anything right now. You just don’t. Right now is for raw grief; anything else can wait until you feel ready for it. When your friends ask what you need, don’t be afraid to say, “I have no idea.” When you get to the funeral, you will sit where someone steers you to sit, and if no one steers you, just choose a seat with people you love. As for your future, your future is this evening, and this evening, your future will be tomorrow morning, and so on. Shorten it into something you are capable of managing, even if your future becomes

Red Devils pick up first victory TRENTON, Mo. — Allen Community College’s men made several key plays down the stretch and were able to corral a hard-fought 72-68 win Saturday over North Central Missouri. The win marked the first career victory for Red Dev-

il coach Andy Shaw. “This was a special game for me,” Shaw said. “The guys really fought hard. It was a back-andforth game.” Allen’s Cameron Blue drove through the lane for a bucket in the game’s final

minute to give the Red Devils a one-point lead. “Bryce Schippers hit a key 3-pointer and free throws for us,” Shaw said. Ce’Zanne Burnes also played well down the stretch, Shaw said. Statistics were unavail-

able, “although I’d be surprised if Cameron didn’t get another double-double for us,” Shaw said. “He’s played very well.” The Red Devils return to action at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday on the road at Butler County Community College.


ACC women improve to 2-0 with 73-70 win TRENTON, Mo. — Allen Community College’s women picked up their second win in as many games on the young 2012-13 season Saturday, fending off a strong challenge from North Central Missouri, 73-70. The Red Devils erased a five-point halftime deficit, 37-32, in the win. Allen outscored the Lady Pirates 4133 after the break.

“We certainly did not shoot the ball as well as we would have liked, but we did seem to knock down some timely shots and our effort and energy was relentless all day long,” Allen coach Mark James said. “North Central Missouri is a very tough, physical team that executes extremely well. This was a very good team road win for us.”

For the second consecutive game, Allen limited its turnovers while spreading the ball around on offense. Five Allen players scored in double figures, led by DaNara Day’s 14 points, while committing only 11 turnovers as a team. The Red Devils also limited North Central Missouri to six offensive rebounds. “If we continue to do that, we’ll be able to hang around against anyone we play this season,” James said. Hannah Blackwell followed Day with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Leslie Ware added 11 points, while Brittney Redmond

and Miracle Davis added 10 points each. Davis also grabbed eight boards and dished out five assists. Iolan Kendra Taiclet connected on both of her 3-point attempts for the Red Devils, scoring six points.

drives and turned the ball over too many times,” Humboldt coach K.B. Criss said. “When you give a team like Colgan that many extra possessions they are definitely going to make you pay.” Humboldt did not go down without a fight. Whitcomb continue to throw the ball downfield in the comeback attempt and wound up with 497 passing yards and three touchdowns. But the Panthers forced nine turnovers — eight on interceptions — to take control. The game began as a barn-burner. Whitcomb’s 15-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter knotted the score at 7-7. After the Panthers regained the lead, Whitcomb connected with senior wideout Tanner McNutt on a 28-yard touchdown pass to even the score at 14-14. Then disaster struck. Colgan scored five touchdowns in a nine-minute stretch, including an 87yard interception return

by Trevor Hoffman, which gave the Panthers a 35-14 lead. Whitcomb was able to stop the bleeding with 48 seconds left in the half on a 28-yard touchdown pass to senior receiver Noah Thornbrugh. The Cubs moved the ball consistently throughout the second half, but turnovers frequently ended scoring chances. Whitcomb connected with McNutt a second time, on a 27-yard pass late in the game to cap Humboldt’s scoring. McNutt led Humboldt with 13 catches for 179 yards, followed by Blake Crawford’s nine for 113 and Thornbrugh’s eight for 117. Hunter Murrow added 85 yards on five catches. “Five hundred twentynine yards of total offense and four touchdowns is nothing to be ashamed of and most of the time that will win you plenty of games, we just simply gave them to many extra possessions,” Criss said. “Words cannot say how proud I am of this football team. They came such a long ways over

doing.” Houk also praised Hamlin, whose offensive line position was dictated by Rock Hills standout defensive lineman Wyatt Flinn. Hamlin was able to contain Flinn, despite being outweighed by 55 pounds. “The kids never quit — they’ve never quit before and they weren’t going to tonight,” Coach Houk said.

“Even on the last series, when they were kneeling on the ball, we were trying to get in there and swipe it away. “These seniors are going to be hard to replace, and the community support we’ve received was tremendous,” Houk continued. “The kids have a lot to be proud of. The season just ended earlier than we wanted it to.”

for good three plays later when Joel Broeckelman scored on a 14-yard run. A three-and-out by the Wildcats gave Rock Hills possession again. Another long Joel Broeckelman punt return set up the Grizzlies at the Marmaton Valley 30. Rock Hills quarterback Clay Cosand took the ensuing snap 30 yards for another touchdown, extending the lead to 30-16. The Wildcats’ Cole Becker stemmed the tide with a 48-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter, but only briefly. Rock Hills took all of three plays to respond, on a 26-yard Cosand touchdown run. A 2-yard loss on fourthand-2 at midfield by the Wildcats gave Rock Hills possession, and Cosand completed his first-half hat trick on a 2-yard touchdown run and a 46-22 lead. Marmaton Valley garnered momentum in the third quarter. Becker cut the lead to 46-28 on a 57-yard touchdown run, and the Wildcats put Rock Hills in a key third-and-long midway through the third quarter. The Grizzlies regained control in a big hurry. Cosand found Dean on 52-yard

scoring pass. Rock Hills retained possession when Becker fumbled the ensuing kickoff at midfield. Joel Broeckelman’s 23-yard touchdown run put Rock Hills out of reach at 60-28. “The two turnovers killed us,” Becker said. “They made some big plays.” THE WILDCATS lost the services of senior quarterback Ryan Smith in the third quarter on an ankle injury. His replacement, Jimmy Frye, tossed a pair of fourth-quarter touchdown passes, a 13-yarder to Lucas Hamlin and a spectacular 22-yard toss to Carlos Gonzales, in which Gonzales was able to deflect the ball to himself with one hand and stay inbounds and rush past the Rock Hills defender into the end zone. “I’ve tried that in practice, but it’s never worked before in a game,” Gonzales said. Coach Houk had high praise for Frye’s relief work. “Jimmy’s the type of kid who will do anything we ask,” he said. “We’ve played him everywhere. We’ve used him at tight end, fullback, tailback and quarterback. He knows what he’s

the last six months and we had a lot of fun along the way. We all wish the results would have played out differently, but this team will be able to look back on this season with pride and a sense of accomplishment. “We are excited about the future of our football program and hope to use this as a springboard for next

year. We are going to work harder than ever to make sure we are in a position to maximize our potential,” Criss concluded.   Conner Dayton paced Colgan with 154 yards on 14 carries. Dyan Dechant passed for 280 yards. Colgan advances to take on Rossville Friday in the state 3A quarterfinals.
