HUMBOLDT — “I’m doing the best work of my life,” Wes Dewey said during a break in his painting at Works of Art Gallery on the east side of Humboldt’s downtown square. Dewey is artist in residence at the gallery. He works from a studio open to view for people who come to browse. Currently he is completing a painting of two gray wolves, an image of nearly photographic quality. He considers himself a “bird artist,” but even the most critical eye would have difficulty finding flaws with the wolves. “I’ve been working on the wolves quite a while,” Dewey said, noting he had changed brushes several times. “I think I’ve finally found the right one,” a common flat brush that gives warmth to their heavy coats. Dewey has painted all of his life, professionally the past 30 years and all but the last two from his home studio in Petrolia. When Joe and Jane Works decided to convert an old store to an art gallery, they had no question who would be featured. All but a handful of paint-

ings on display in the gallery are Dewey’s. Other area artists are featured on a monthly basis. This month it is Norma Petri, Garnett. In December, Micah Guenther, formerly of Humboldt now living in Girard, will have paintings displayed. Also, Dirk Sorenson, Yates Center, has sculptures in the gallery. “Some of the paintings on permanent display were done by Melissa (Burke, his daughter),” who manages the gallery, Dewey said. Dewey is there daily. “Some days I paint eight or nine hours,” he said. “It isn’t unusual for me to come in early in the morning and I often paint into the evening.” “I enjoy having people watch me work,” Dewey added, and he isn’t adverse to giving tips, particularly to youngsters. “I have an idea that if people watch what I’m doing they may become interested in painting. We’ve had more then 30 people sign up for classes,” which may be among the gallery’s offerings in 2013. He also wants to bring a Kansas Junior Duck Stamp Workshop to the Humboldt gallery. “There are 800 kids in the program and I think it would be nice See ARTIST | Page A4

Iolan, 105, lives life ‘her way’ By ALLISON TINN allison@iolaregister.com

Carolyn Zellner

Shop stocks sewing needs HUMBOLDT — Heavenly Kneads & Threads, 724 Bridge St., is the go-to place for all things to do with quilting. “We have all the supplies for quilting, as well as yarn for knitting, and books and patterns,” said Carolyn Zellner, the shop’s owner. “We also offer classes in knitting, crocheting and quilting.” Zellner will have a storewide sale for her Christmas open house on Dec. 1, which coincides with other open houses in Humboldt shops and the town’s annual Christmas craft show at Humboldt High School. Zellner also does machine quilting for groups and individuals with quilt tops they want finished, but don’t have the time or wherewithal to complete. Hand-quilting is becoming a

lost art, she observed. “There still are a few quilting groups, mostly at churches, that hand-quilt,” she said, “but even with five or six ladies it can take a week to do a quilt.” Quilting, the shop’s main focus, isn’t restricted to women, Zellner added. “Some men quilt and some are very good at it,” she said. “At a show in Pittsburg some of the most awesome quilts I’ve seen were done by a man.” The shop observed its sixth anniversary in October. Her clientele comes from within 40 to 50 miles and includes quilting groups whose members go on “shop hops,” visiting several in a day’s time. Last week a group from El Dorado came to Humboldt to see what Zellner had to offer. Zellner also gives massages at the shop, which is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday See SHOP | Page A4

The oldest person in recorded history was Jeanne Calment, 122, of France. Iolan Hazel Moorhead, at almost 106, might not be in the Guinness Book of World Records but she is making her own history in Allen County. Moorhead’s family thinks she might be the oldest person in all of Allen County. Moorhead was born Nov. 29, 1906. She was born on a farm and grew up helping her dad farm, milk cows and skin mules. “She could skin four mules as good as anyone,” Moorhead’s nephew, Dale Mast said of getting a team outfitted. Hazel was second of eight children and was born to Clarence and Mabel “Gangloff ” Beer. Hazel went on to work at a variety of different jobs, one being as a drycleaner in Topeka. She married later in life and didn’t have children of her own,

Budget clash leaves EU close to failure BRUSSELS (AP) — The prospect of failure loomed over a European Union leaders’ summit charged with agreeing on a $1.25 trillion long-term spending plan for the 27-country bloc. As the EU’s leaders resumed another round of negotiations Friday, any sign of a deal remained far out of reach. While heavyweights like Britain and France were pulling in opposite directions, smaller members were also threatening to veto a deal in order to make themselves heard. “I have my doubts that we will come to an agreement,” German 75 Cents

Chancellor Angela Merkel said early Friday as she left the first day of the talks, which could stretch into Saturday. The EU budget primarily funds programs to help farming and spur growth in the bloc’s less developed countries. In financial terms, the budget amounts to only about 1 percent of the EU’s gross domestic product, but carries great political significance as it lays bare the balance of power between the bloc’s members. The bloc is divided, notably between richer countries that want to contain their contributions to

the common budget at a time of economic malaise, and poorer ones that rely on EU money for development aid and economic investment. British Prime Minister David Cameron is the most vocal leader demanding restraint, while French President Francois Hollande wants the budget to keep paying subsidies for farming and development programs for poorer nations. A revised proposal late Thursday by European Council President Herman Van Rompuy appeared to do little to appease See EU | Page A4

Black Friday sales kick off season This year’s Black Friday shoppers were split into two distinct groups: those who wanted to fall into a turkey-induced slumber and those who’d rather shop instead. Stores typically open in the wee hours of the morning on the day after Thanksgiving that’s named Black Friday because it’s traditionally when retailers turn a profit for the year. But after testing how shoppers would respond to earlier hours last year, stores such as Target and Toys R Us this year opened as early as Thanksgiving evening. That led shoppers on a mission to find the best Black Friday deals to ask a difficult question: Deal with the crowds now or later? Crystal Camacho, 19, and Sammy Caban, 23, got to Best Buy in the Manhattan borough of New York City at 12:30 a.m. on Black Friday with one goal in mind, a 40-inch Toshiba TV on sale for $180. They were determined, even though they both worked on Thanksgiving Day and had to work on Black Friday, she as a restaurant hostess and he as salesperson at GameStop. Five hours later, a little after 5 a.m., they walked out with the TV. “It was crazy but well worth it,” Caban said. “We got lucky.” Elizabeth Garcia, a sales rep from the city’s Bronx borough, decided for a

later shopping started at about 3:30 a.m. at a nearby Toys R Us in New York’s Times Square. Garcia, who has three children ages 3, 5 and 7, said she specifically decided on the later time to avoid the crowds on Thanksgiving when the store opened at 8 p.m. She believes that was the best decision: Last year, Garcia almost got into a fight over a Tinker Bell couch, but this year things were much calmer. “This year I wasn’t about to kill people,” she said. It is unclear how many shoppers were drawn to the earlier openings versus the traditional Black Friday hours. But according to an International Council of Shopping Centers-Goldman Sachs survey of 1,000 consumers conducted this month, about 17 percent planned to shop at stores that opened on Thanksgiving, up from 16 percent last year when retailers were testing the earlier hours. Meanwhile, 33 percent intended to shop on Black Friday, down 1 percentage point from last year. Overall, it’s estimated that sales on Black Friday will be up 3.8 percent to $11.4 billion this year. The earlier hours are an effort by stores to make shopping as convenient as possible for Americans, who they fear won’t spend freely during the two-month holiday season in November and December because of economic uncertainty. Many shoppers are worried about high unemployment and a package of tax in-

creases and spending cuts known as the “fiscal cliff ” that will take effect in January unless Congress passes a budget deal by then. At the same time, Americans have grown more comfortable shopping on websites that offer cheap prices and the convenience of being able to buy something from smart phones, laptops and

tablet computers from just about anywhere. That’s put added pressure on brick-and-mortar stores, which can make up to 40 percent of their annual revenue during the holiday shopping season, to give consumers a compelling reason to leave their homes. That’s becoming more difficult: the National Retail Federation, an industry trade group, estimates that overall sales in November and December will rise 4.1 percent this year to $586.1 billion, or about flat with last year’s growth. But the online part of that is expected to rise 15 percent to $68.4 billion, according to Forrester Research. Some stores tested the earlier hours last year, but this year more retailers opened their doors late on Thanksgiving or at midnight on Black Friday. In addition to expanding their hours, many also are offering

free layaways and shipping, matching the cheaper prices of online rivals and updating their mobile shopping apps with more information. “Every retailer wants to beat everyone else,” said C. Britt Beemer, chairman of America’s Research Group, a research firm based in Charleston, S.C. “Shoppers love it.” Indeed, some holiday shoppers seemed to find stores’ earlier hours appealing. About 11,000 shoppers were in lines wrapped around Macy’s flagship store in New York City’s Herald Square when it opened at midnight on Black Friday. Joan Riedewald, a private aide for the elderly, and her four children ages six to 18, where among them. By the time they showed up at the department store, Riedewalde had already spent about $100 at Toys R Us, which opened at 8 p.m., and planned to spend another $500 at Macy’s before heading to Old Navy. “I only shop for sales,” she said. Carey Maguire, 33, and her sister Caitlyn Maguire, 21, showed up at the same Target about two hours before it opened. Their goal was to buy several Nook tablet computers, which were on sale for $49. But while waiting in line they were also using their iPhone to do some online buying at rival stores. “If you’re going to spend, I want to make it worth it,” said Caitlyn Maguire, a college student.

Taliban bomber kills 3, injures 90 By DEB RIECHMANN Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A Taliban suicide bomber detonated a truck full of explosives Friday in eastern Afghanistan, killing three Afghan civilians and wounding more than 90 people, including several Afghan and NATO troops, officials said. The early morning explosion in Maidan Shahr, the capital of Wardak province, also destroyed or damaged several government offices and a local prison, said provincial spokesman Shahidullah Shahid. The blast occurred in an area that is home to government offices, the provincial governor’s office, police headquarters, a prison and a coordination center used by international and Afghan security forces. Shahid said two men and a woman were killed and 90 people — 75 men, 11 women and four children — were wounded. U.S. Army Maj. Adam Wojack, a spokesman for the international military coalition, said a half-dozen NATO soldiers also received minor injuries in the explosion. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid

claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying in a statement to media that it was in response to the recent execution of four Taliban detainees at the Afghan government’s main detention center in Kabul. The men were convicted and sentenced to death in Afghan courts for a variety of crimes, including murder, rape, kidnapping, robbery and cruelty against children. The Taliban condemned the hangings, saying the detainees were prisoners of war who were unjustly jailed. Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi said Afghan security troops and prisoners were among the wounded in the Wardak blast. Three prisoners tried to escape from the damaged prison,

but were apprehended, he said. “Unfortunately, it was a very bad explosion and many of our countrymen were injured,” he told reporters at a news conference in Kabul. “There was a lot of damage to infrastructure. The buildings that were around the blast were destroyed.” The Taliban said the attack involved two suicide bombers and claimed it killed tens of Afghan and international troops. Afghan and international forces have been working to root out insurgents in Wardak, to keep them from moving north into the Afghan capital. The international forces are scheduled to turn over security responsibility to local troops by the end of 2014.

Susan’s “crazy for cranberries” muffins

I like cranberry sauce in a variety of ways — hot with horseradish, spicy with anise, and sweet with sugar — so I invariably have some left over. These muffins are a good way to use the traditional style of cranberry sauce. Leftover Cranberry Sauce Muffins Ingredients:

1½ cups flour 1 cup rolled oats, plus 3 tablespoons ½ cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon cinnamon 1½ cups leftover cranberry sauce ½ cup milk

⅓ cup vegetable oil 1 egg

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin. In large bowl, whisk together flour, 1 cup oats, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, whisk together cranberry sauce, milk, vegetable oil and egg. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Pour into muffin pan and sprinkle with the remaining 3 tablespoons of oats. Bake for 20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out dry. Let cool five minutes before removing from pan.

Richard’s “gobble it up” pizza

Forget soups, pot pies or casseroles. Leftover Thanksgiving turkey can easily be made into a tasty pizza pie. You can make your homemade pizza sauce (or if you’re tired of hours already spent in the kitchen this week, just go the store and purchase your favorite brand of sauce). The same goes for the dough. Kitchen wizards already have their own recipes for ideal pizza crust. I just buy a can of refrigerated pizza dough (or a prepackaged crust). Place the crust on a pizza pan or baking sheet coated

A3

with cooking spray. Crimp the edges of the dough with your fingers to form a rim. Spread the sauce over the crust, leaving about onequarter inch on the board. Top with 2 cups of chopped turkey and sprinkle with cheese. You can add other ingredients, such as tomatoes, but avoid anchovies or mushrooms (because they’re gross). Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

Pam’s Turkey Pot Pie Ingredients:

1 recipe pastry for a (10 inch) double crust pie 4 tablespoons butter 1 small onion, minced 2 stalks celery, chopped 2 carrots, diced 3 tablespoons dried parsley 1 teaspoon dried oregano salt and pepper to taste 2 cubes chicken bouillon 2 cups water 3 potatoes, peeled and cubed 1½ cups cooked turkey, cubed 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour ½ cup milk Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll out bottom pie crust and place in the 10inch pie pan and set aside. Place 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet. Add the onion, celery, carrots, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the vegetables are soft. Stir in the bouillon and water. Bring mixture to a boil. Stir in the potatoes, and cook until tender but still firm. In a medium saucepan, melt the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in the turkey and flour. Add the milk, and heat through.

forced a rambunctious young Wes Dewey to spend his time indoors, resting. “We didn’t have TV or video games,� Dewey said of the 1950s. “I spent a lot of time drawing and fell in love with it,� he said. Before and after his bout with the debilitating illness, Dewey liked to roam the woods and countryside around Chanute, his hometown. He enjoyed watching wildlife, squirrels scampering through tree branches, birds of all kinds and colors and marveled at waterfowl breaking from a pond’s surface to wing away. Age 17 was memorable, he said. “I graduated from (Chanute) high school, went to work for Hallmark and got married,� he said. During the next 20 years he painted recreationally, after leaving Hallmark to work for Custom Electronics in Chanute and Road Electronics in Fort Scott, before deciding to pursue art professionally in the mid-1980s. In 1989 he entered the Kansas Duck Stamp competition and placed fourth. The next year his entry was the winner. That sparked a passion to win the federal duck stamp competition. “I’ve been in the top 10 twice and 11th another time,� he said. “The competition is terrific. Last year there were 245 entries and all of them were good enough to win.� Federal stamp entries finishing in the top 10 are part of a nationwide tour display, which has given Dewey national exposure. Dewey, 68, said he intended to continue working toward winning the federal competition, although he knows age and physical problems may work against him in the years ahead. “I have macular degeneration in my left eye, but it doesn’t affect me too much when I’m working up close� to a canvas, he said. Back problems and Type II diabetes also affect his stamina. Stamp competitions aren’t his only pursuit. Awards have come his way often. He was a Kansas Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Print Artist in 2007, 2008 and 2009, and has had paintings win and finish high many times in juried shows throughout the nation. WORKS of Art Gallery

When it was time for Moorhead to give up driving, no one forced her; she quit on her own, Dale said. Hazel and her husband, Arthur “Doc� Moorhead, moved to Iola roughly 30 years ago and Hazel has stayed in that home ever since. Doc has since passed away. Moorhead is known for her love of fresh flowers, farming, pumpkin pie and canning.

The Council is the gathering of the 27 EU heads of state and government.

proposals for additional spending. It isn’t a time for tinkering. It isn’t a time for David Cameron moving money from one part of the budget to another. You know, we need unaffordable spending cut. That’s what’s happening at home; that’s what needs to happen here.� Belgian Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo was also displeased with Van Rompuy’s proposal — but for precisely the opposite reason. “The big problem, the basic problem is that there is not enough money,� Di Rupo said of the plan. “The basis is that we reduce the overall

volume, and this is dramatic because European countries need the support of the EU.� Given the conflicting noises emerging, there was a growing expectation that another summit will be needed. “We should not consider that if we don’t get there tomorrow or the day after, all would be lost,� Hollande said. Britain is backed by other net contributors to the EU budget, such as the Netherlands, Sweden and, to a certain extent Germany. Public sentiment toward the EU in these countries has soured as the institutions — and the common currency, the euro — are considered largely responsible for the financial crisis afflicting the continent.

Mideast cease fire grew from firmer ties with Egypt President Barack Obama was in Cambodia Monday at a summit banquet. He skipped dessert to rush back to his hotel suit at 11:30 p.m. to call President Mohammed Morsi in Cairo to begin a series of oneon-one conversations which would lead to a cease fire between Hamas in Gaza and the Israelis, whose troops were, and remain, massed on the Gaza border eager to invade. Both parties agreed Thursday it was the combination of Egypt and the United States that pressured Hamas and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to stop the fighting and agree to discuss the issues between them. It is far too early to say peace is about to break out. Hamas demands Israel lift its embargo that prevents most imports into Gaza. Israel has refused because it expects doing so would result in the importation of heavy weapons that would lead to more damaging attacks by Hamas militants. Nonetheless, compromises are possible. A deal could be reached that would allow increased imports into Gaza and exports from there to other nations to both be monitored by a neutral authority. Much will have been accomplished if the two sides actually do sit down together and begin to talk about ways out of continuous conflict. Much has already been accomplished for stability in the Middle East by the trusting connection forged between Presidents Obama and Morsi. The two spent several hours on the telephone together and agreed on ways to broker a tentative peace. President Morsi supports Hamas and has egged it on in its attacks on Israel.

He is the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. But he is also the newly elected president of Egypt who understands that his nation cannot achieve the stability economic progress requires without support from the United States and relative peace in the region. For his part, President Obama has been a student of the Middle East and of the Muslim world. He supports Israel, but he understands the Palestinians. His ability to see both sides of the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel has been of critical importance in dealing with this crisis. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also deserves praise. She was an able representative of the president and the United States. Four years in the office have given her the experience and knowledge to add on-thespot credibility to the U.S. determination to do what it can to stop the bloodshed and open new talks. WONDERING WHAT might have been is a frivolous exercise — still, one can’t help thinking that the president’s re-election gave him added clout that made the difference this week. President Morsi appears to be a practical man. If President Obama had been defeated and had only a few weeks more in office, Mr. Morsi may not have felt the need to establish a firm relationship with him, despite the urgent need to stop the fighting. The opportunity to alter history might have been lost. It is the world’s good fortune that we will never know the answer to that what-if. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

Mindless task gave useful insight After pushing back his plate, Dad wondered why we can’t have turkey more often. After cooking for three days straight, I had to restrain myself. Of course, if all that was required to make an adequate meal was to plop the big bird in the oven, that would be one thing. But without the multiple side dishes, stuffing and gravy, turkey would come down a notch in my estimation. So, I’m happy to keep the Thanksgiving Day meal on its pedestal, and let the deli provide sliced turkey for sandwiches. Besides, it’ll take a good while for me to drum up the energy for another cooking marathon. EARLIER THIS WEEK I took note of two plants in our bedroom, seemingly suffocating from a thick layer of dust. Armed with a damp cloth, I took the time to clean each individual leaf. The repetitiveness of the task caused my mind to Zen out as I

Susan Lynn Register editor

delicately wiped each petal of an old jade plant, now the size of a small tree. Its looks are deceiving. The thick trunk and leaves are surprising sensitive. The slightest provocation will cause a leaf to fall off. It prefers to go without water until its last gasp, and then only a sprinkling will do. Too much moisture and its limbs begin to shrivel. I imagined the plant’s thankfulness for the preening. Its luster returned to a deep green and I could practically see it taking a deep breath thanks to its unclogged pores. All we need is a little care, they seemed to say. And I thought, yes, I

should take the time more often to do such a simple task. It was a good way to start Thanksgiving week. After a sampling of pie Thursday night — two bites at most — the grandkids took Brian into the living room to “play house.” Which turned into war. Much more fun. The kids let loose shrieks of laughter bordering on hysteria as he acted as a deranged maniac. I’m not sure about Lynna and Evan — every day’s a play day for them — but that 30 minutes of rough-housing did Brian a world of good. Connecting. Loving. Showing younger generations you are interested in their worlds, and if they’ll let you, want to be a part of their lives. Cooking, playing, sharing intimate thoughts, or just being there, all made for a most satisfactory day. No, every day can’t be spent in such ways. But, like my rescued plants, little acts of kindness also go a long ways.

Clinton my choice for best prez Each Thanksgiving we play a game during dinner. Wife Beverly always starts it off, encouraging each of us to tell what we’re thankful for. I suspect it’s a holiday tradition many families follow. Answers are predictable, through no one ever doubts their sincerity. She is thankful for family and all who come to help us celebrate. The grandkids join the fun and usually mention Mom and Dad and grandparents. This year I included doctors, because of a cranky hip joint. I’m also thankful that when such body parts start to fail, modern science can intervene. Our youngest grandchild, Maddox, this year wanted to take things a step further and retrieved a card game that has players answer a common ques-

At Week’s End Bob Johnson tion. The first one off the deck this year was, “Who is your favorite president and why?” That sounds easy enough, but with a little thought it gets more difficult. I often have said Eisenhower was a dandy president. I was born when Roosevelt was in office and recall, though vaguely, when Truman won his first, and only, four-year term in 1948. Strong cases could be made for both of them, but I was

reluctant because my memories of them come only from what I learned in school and read over the years. Eisenhower certainly isn’t a bad choice. He held sway during a time when things were going very right for the nation, though it was during his terms that the Cold War began to grip the world and we also increased our early involvement in Vietnam. I liked Kennedy’s inclusiveness, enough that I wavered from my Republican roots. Fast forward to the 1990s and we come to my favorite. Bill Clinton is my choice. It is hard to argue with eight years without war raging, a robust economy and balanced budgets. From the perspective of his presidency and its effect on the nation and the world, I think Clinton had a terrific upside.

Today in history Today is Friday, Nov. 23, the 328th day of 2012. There are 38 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 23, 1942, during World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a measure establishing the U.S. Women’s Coast Guard Reserve, or SPARS (an abbreviation of the U.S. Coast Guard motto “Semper Paratus” — “Always Ready”). In 1804, the 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce, was born in Hillsboro, N.H. In 1887, actor Boris Karloff was born William Henry Pratt in London. In 1936, Life, the photojournal-

ism magazine created by Henry R. Luce, was first published. In 1980, some 2,600 people were killed by a series of earthquakes that devastated southern Italy. Five years ago: Saudi Arabia and other Arab nations grudgingly agreed to attend an upcoming U.S.-sponsored Mideast peace conference, despite failing to get any guarantee of Israeli concessions. Lebanon’s President Emile Lahoud left office without a successor after announcing he was handing over security powers to the army. A Canadian cruise ship, the MS Explorer, struck submerged ice off Antarctica and began taking

on water, but all 154 passengers and crew took to lifeboats and were plucked to safety by a passing cruise ship. One year ago: Yemen’s authoritarian President Ali Abdullah Saleh agreed to step down amid a fierce uprising to oust him after 33 years in power. Thought for Today: “I’m a realist and so I think regretting is a useless occupation. You help no one with it. But you can’t live without illusions even if you must fight for them, such as ‘love conquers all.’ It isn’t true, but I would like it to be.” — Marlene Dietrich, German-born actress (1901-1992).

Letter to the editor Dear editor,

I was thoroughly appalled at the political cartoon the Iola Register chose to run in Saturday’s Nov. 17 paper — The GOP (with translations.) I do enjoy political cartoons and political satire, but this one really offended me. While Britt, the cartoonist, and the Register have every right to express their respective opinions, I question the judgment of printing this when the political factions are involved in such a serious investiga-

tion. An investigation concerning four valiant Americans who were murdered in Libya in September. Ms. Rice is NOT the issue here. This cartoon is blatantly racist and I am not aware of any of my fellow Republicans who feel this way. I challenge the Register to be more fair in what they print on this subject, as well as, on any future political hot potatoes. Respectfully, Ardith Harris, Iola, Kan.

Wedding

Chantal Catron and Nickolas Trester Chantal Rose Catron and Nickolas Lee Trester, Iola, were married Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012 at the home of the bride’s parents in Iola. Chantal wore her mother’s wedding dress and Pastor Earl Bell officiated the wedding. Chantal is the daughter of Monica and Dennis Catron Jr., Iola. Nickolas is the son of Sharon Trester, Iola, and Delmar Bresee, Joplin.

Chantal plans to be a stay at home mom and take care of their one-year-old son, Jacob. Nickolas is self-employed. Grandparents attending the wedding were Nancy Pollett, Independence, and Raymond and Mary Ellen Dix, Iola. Melissa Creason, the bride’s aunt, was matron of honor. Aaron Dix, the bride’s brother, was best man.

Documentary filmmaker predicted Sandy PHILADELPHIA (AP) — In the documentary “Shored Up,” scientists warn that with a rising sea level, a major storm could put New Jersey’s barrier islands underwater and create devastating storm surges. In other words, what happened last month when Superstorm Sandy slammed into New Jersey and New York. For Ben Kalina, the Philadelphia filmmaker who was nearly finished putting together the documentary when the storm hit, it meant that the ideas in the film that may have sounded far-fetched — or at least, discussions of something that may happen sometime in the future — were suddenly immediate. “Until Sandy, we were making a film about something much more meditative, really,” Kalina said. “And now the stakes are suddenly much more real.” It also meant Kalina and his crew had more shooting to do, revisiting places they’d shot — some of which were wiped away by Sandy. That again pushed back the completion date for a film he’d been working on for three years. He’s now planning to finish the film in January. It’s an independent effort that he is hoping will be shown on television. He is also planning to hold screenings, particularly in the places featured in the movie, such as New Jersey’s Long Beach Island. Kalina, 36, is not a scientist, but he’s fascinated

by telling the stories from science by looking at the cultural and political implications, too. He worked on “A Sea Change,” about the state of the world’s oceans, and “After the Cap,” a look back at the Gulf oil spill of 2010, among other films. He became interested in the state of barrier islands after reading an article about how surfers opposed beach replenishment proj-

ects on the New Jersey shore. The story became broader than that, evolving into a look at the way shore areas are developed and protected through means like jetties and beach replenishment projects. As more structures are built on barrier islands, he said, more has to be done to protect them. “Once you decide to settle in a place that’s so fraught,

all the decisions you make have consequences and more consequences,” he said. The solutions can be expensive, and Kalina says, not sustainable. “Beach replenishment is not going to save the day,” he said. “You get this sense of security from beach replenishment that’s a false sense of security in the long run.”

They keep coming back! “I was able to live at home until I needed assistance from a caregiver 24 hours a day. My doctor recommended Windsor Place, which was fine with me since I’d stayed here before. I really enjoy visiting with the preschool kids since I’m a retired teacher. I also like being able to go outside and relax when the weather is nice. Plus, I always have the help I need – even in the middle of the night. Windsor Place is also a great place to meet new friends.” – Jean Capell We have many repeat customers at Windsor Place. Our residents come stay with us when they aren’t able to care for themselves due to illness, injury or surgery. Once they have recuperated, they can return to living in their own homes.

Patriots, Redskins, Texans take home victories Area EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Tom Brady couldn’t believe what happened. Neither could Bill Belichick, nor the rest of the New England Patriots, for that matter. They were up 7-0 on the New York Jets one minute, and 28-0 the next. Literally. Three touchdowns in 52 seconds. That was all it took to send the high-scoring Patriots to a 49-19 victory Thursday night — and put the bumbling Jets on the verge of seeing their season slip away. In other Thanksgiving Day NFL action, Houston edged Detroit 34-31 in overtime and Washington downed Dallas 38-28. Brady threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score as the Patriots (8-3) took advantage of five turnovers and used a 35-point second quarter — including the three TDs in less than a minute — to cruise past the Jets (4-7). New England’s 35 second-quarter points tied for the fourth-most in a quarter in NFL history. After a scoreless opening period, the Patriots then went on a touchdown spree despite holding the ball for only 2:14 as the Jets kept giving the ball away. After New England recovered a fumble by Shonn Greene, Brady threw a swing pass on first down to Shane Vereen, who zipped down the left sideline untouched for an 83-yard touchdown that made it 14-0 with 9:43 remaining in the opening half. The Patriots were back in the end zone moments later after Sanchez fumbled on second down as he fell when he slammed into right guard Brandon Moore’s backside. Gregory picked up the ball and ran it 32 yards for a score to put New England up 21-0 with 9 minutes left. The Patriots weren’t done. Joe McKnight, one of the league’s top returners, fumbled the ensuing kickoff on a hit by Devin McCourty. Julian Edelman grabbed the ball out of the air and

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (9) scores on a 2-point conversion, as Washington Redskins strong safety DeJon Gomes defends, during the second half at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Thursday. The Redskins defeated the Cowboys, 38-31. scooted 22 yards for yet another score, making it 28-0 with 8:51 remaining in the half. IN DETROIT, the Houston Texans took advantage of a big mistake by Lions coach Jim Schwartz. Shayne Graham’s 32-yard field goal with 2:21 left in overtime lifted Houston to the overtime win after Schwartz broke an NFL rule on a scoring play. Schwartz threw a challenge flag when Houston’s Justin Forsett scored on an 81-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Replays showed Forsett was down near midfield, but Schwartz negated the automatic review by challenging the play and was called for unsportsmanlike conduct. “It’s on me,” Schwartz said to his assistant coaches and players on the sideline as he tapped his chest. “It’s on me.” Detroit kicker Jason Hanson had a chance to get Schwartz off the hook, but his 47-yard field goal attempt on the fifth possession of

the extra period hit the right upright. AFC South-leading Houston (101) took its first lead when Graham made up for missing a field goal earlier in a turnover-filled OT. The Texans have won five straight — two in a row in OT — and if a handful of teams lose they might be in the playoffs by the time they get back on the practice field after a long weekend. Detroit (4-7) has lost three straight to make it extremely difficult to reach its goal of earning a spot in consecutive postseasons for the first time since the mid-1990s. IN DALLAS, Robert Griffin III threw for 311 yards and four touchdowns, helping the Washington Redskins beat the Cowboys. The Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor made the Cowboys (5-6) look like an overmatched college team during the decisive second quarter in his first trip to Texas as a pro. Griffin was 8 of 8 for 178 yards

with three touchdowns to key the first 28-point quarter in 13 years for the Redskins (5-6). The rookie became the first Washington quarterback to throw four touchdown passes in consecutive games. Tony Romo lost for the first time in six starts on Thanksgiving, despite a career-high 441 yards and three second-half touchdowns, including a careerlong 85-yarder to Dez Bryant.

Sprint Cup Series

SPRINT CUP WRAP

Budweiser Shootout, TBA, Feb. 16

 In case anyone had any doubt, Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski is an enthusiastic consumer of his sponsor, Miller Lite.  Jeff Gordon won a race that many detractors felt he should have been banned from competing in. A fine, loss of points and probation did not prevent Gordon from winning for the 87th time.  It was a year of young champions in NASCAR’s three major series, with Brad Keselowski winning in Sprint Cup, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (for the second year in a row) closing the Busch Series deal and James Buescher winning the Camping World Truck Series championship.  Stenhouse’s next task is an unenviable one. He replaces Matt Kenseth in Jack Roush’s Sprint Cup operation.  Keselowski’s performance was canny. Although he didn’t finish well, he had the championship foremost in mind, and wasn’t ever in serious danger of losing it.  No one outside the Chase rounded into shape for next season better than Kyle Busch, whose average finish in the final four races was 3.0.  Perhaps it was a good omen. The pre-race concert was by Kid Rock, who, like Keselowski, is from Michigan.  The lingering image of Homestead, and perhaps the season, will be Keselowski’s raucous, enthusiastic appearance on ESPN.  At 28, Keselowski is the eighth youngest champion in Cup history. Only one other driver, Bobby Labonte, has ever won both the Cup and (now) Nationwide Series championships in his career.

NATIONWIDE WRAP

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Perhaps it was unfair to expect NASCAR’s Sprint Cup championship to be a spine-tingling affair. Perhaps the unprecedented, year-old battle between Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards raised expectations to an absurd level. At Homestead-Miami Speedway, Jeff Gordon won the 87th race of his career, and his freshly minted arch-rival, Clint Bowyer, finished second. Somehow this competition was bereft of drama. “I felt terrible about how I went about it,” Gordon said about wrecking him. “And still regret the way I went about it, but, you know what? I can’t take (Phoenix) back. “What we can do is look forward and race guys as hard and clean as we possibly can, and this is a way to get some positive things going because this year has been real up and down.” Brad Keselowski’s championship was no

surprise. He entered the race with a 20-point edge and took no chances. Jimmie Johnson’s crew botched his shot on pit road and, thanks to a mechanical failure, he didn’t even finish second in the points. Bowyer did. Perhaps the champion’s caution was understandable and even smart, but he had sworn in the days leading up to the race that he would race to win, even allowing as how he was “afraid” to race differently. “(Johnson) was going to win this race, and I know that,” Keselowski said. “We were not as fast as we wanted to be … but my guys never gave up. We kept working, and at the end we were even capable of getting back up there enough to where it wouldn’t have mattered if he had won, which made me feel a lot better.” Keselowski, 28, of Rochester Hills, Mich., won the championship by 39 points in spite of finishing 15th in the most important race of his life to date.

CAMPING WORLD TRUCK WRAP

■ Making his first series start in five

years, Regan Smith established himself as a contender for the 2013 championship with a victory in the Ford EcoBoost 300. Smith, who won a Sprint Cup race at Darlington in 2011, will compete for the Nationwide title next year. Kyle Busch finished second behind Smith’s Chevy. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. locked down his second series title in a row with a sixth-place finish. Six drivers have won consecutive championships in the series now known as Nationwide: Sam Ard, Larry Pearson, Randy LaJoie, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Martin Truex Jr. and Stenhouse. Meanwhile, a former series champion, Brad Keselowski, was winning the Sprint Cup title. After eight consecutive years with at least one victory, Busch’s streak ended with the

runner-up finish. ■ Cale Gale gave the series a rousing conclusion, edging Kyle Busch by.014 of a second in the Ford EcoBoost 200. A 13th-place finish enabled James Buescher to lock down the series championship. With sparks flying as the two trucks screeched against each other on the way to an overtime finish, Busch’s Toyota lost momentum, his Toyota pinched between Gale’s Chevy and the wall. Buescher drove a methodical race, but rookie Ty Dillon made a last-ditch move that briefly put the championship in jeopardy. Dillon crashed with two laps remaining. Buescher wound up winning the title by six points over Timothy Peters, who ran eighth in the final race. Joey Coulter finished third in the final race, followed by Nelson Piquet Jr. and Miguel Paludo.

CALE GALE VS. KYLE BUSCH

Gale won in the Camping World Truck Series for the first time, and the victory came at Busch’s expense. Gale’s truck pinched Busch’s into the Homestead-Miami Speedway front-straight wall, enabling Gale to win the Ford EcoBoost 200 by inches. Predictably, Busch didn’t take it too kindly. “I got drove into the fence,” Busch said. “That’s it. You saw it.” NASCAR This Week’s Monte Dutton gives his take: “Many suggested that, had the roles been reversed, Busch would have done the same thing. Via social media, Busch declared staunchly that he wouldn’t have. The race ended in a shower of sparks. The fans loved it.”

Hail To The Kez Keselowski’s first title a welcome prize for Penske

By Monte Dutton

NASCAR This Week

HOMESTEAD, Fla. — Like him or not, Brad Keselowski gave NASCAR a breath of fresh, if somewhat inebriated, air after nailing down the Sprint Cup championship. Keselowski also achieved the historic accomplishing of winning the first Cup championship for legendary owner Roger Penske. “He’s a great leader on our team,” Penske said of Keselowski. “I remember … that he said, ‘I’m not helping (former teammate) Kurt Busch enough,’ meaning he wasn’t good enough at that point. “But when he took over the leadership of the team, I said to him, ‘You’re going to be the leader of this team,’ and I think that you’ve seen what’s happened. He hasn’t missed a step. He’s galvanized the team from the standpoint of leadership with Paul (Wolfe, crew chief) and the whole team, and I think never does he miss a day coming in the

shop, putting his arm around the guys, and that makes a big difference. You can be a big shot, but you’ve got to get down on the ground and work with the guys that are doing all this work day in and day out.” Keselowski’s performance in the season’s final race was workmanlike, but his post-race performance — celebrating, appearing on ESPN SportsCenter and in the media conference, was memorable. “That’s as sweet as life gets, to know that you have people around you that can make up for you when you make mistakes, because we all make mistakes, and I make a ton of them. But I know that when I make them, I’ve got people that got my back,” Keselowski said. It was Dodge’s fifth Cup championship and first since 1975. It will be the last for a while since the manufacturer is leaving the sport for now. Next year Keselowski, new teammate Joey Logano and Penske Racing will switch to Ford.

Dear NASCAR This Week, I saw the crash at the end of the race in Phoenix over the weekend, and I have to say that I am shocked with the penalties handed out by NASCAR. I think they show favoritism to the Hendrick Motorsports race teams. I remember, a few years ago, Kevin Harvick was parked for a race for rough driving, and more recently, it was done to Kyle Busch. Tony Stewart was made to attend anger-management classes. Now … Jeff Gordon was not having a good race, and apparently he felt Clint was not racing him clean, (so) instead of complaining to NASCAR like a sport leader should do, he purposefully ran Clint into the wall, also tearing up cars driven by Joey Logano and Aric Almirola. I was shocked by the small slap on the wrist by NASCAR, seriously, docked 25 points, $100,000 and on probation for basically 1 race. The points should go to Clint and the fine should be at least $200,000! Dan Meny Newburgh, Ind. You were certainly not alone in your assessment. NASCAR officials often claim that penalties are based on the merits of each situation and that they do not factor in history. Then, in Gordon’s case, they suggest that history was a factor in the leniency of penalties. It’s a double standard, but it’s emblematic of NASCAR’s haphazard judiciary.

Dodge Returns To Glory Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski has nine career victories, eight while driving Dodges, and he became the manufacturer’s fifth champion. Previous titles went to Dodge drivers David Pearson (1966), Bobby Isaac (1970) and Richard Petty (1974-75). The all-time leaders in Dodge victories are Isaac and Petty, each with 37. Pearson won 27. Overall, of course, Petty, with 200 victories, and Pearson, with 105, rank 1-2 in NASCAR’s all-time victory list.

decrees as dictatorial and destined to divide a nation already reeling from months of turmoil following Mubarak’s ouster. Some said they exceeded the powers once enjoyed by Mubarak. “Morsi today usurped all state powers & appointed himself Egypt’s new pharaoh,” pro-reform leader Mohamed ElBaradei wrote on Twitter. “A major blow to the revolution that could have dire consequences.” ElBaradei later addressed a news conference flanked by other prominent politicians from outside the Brotherhood, including two presidential candidates who ran against Morsi, Amr Moussa and Hamdeen Sabahi. They pledged to cooperate to force Morsi to rescind his assumption of greater powers. “We will work together as Egyptians until we achieve the goals of our revolution,” said ElBaradei, a former director of the U.N.’s nuclear agency and Nobel peace laureate. They called for mass protests Friday to demand the dissolution of the declarations. The audience interrupted the press conference, chanting “Down with the Guide’s rule,” referring to the Supreme Guide of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group, Mohammed Badie.

CAIRO (AP) — Egypt’s Islamist president unilaterally decreed greater authorities for himself Thursday and effectively neutralized a judicial system that had emerged as a key opponent by declaring that the courts are barred from challenging his decisions. Riding high on U.S. Morsi and international praise for mediating a Gaza cease-fire, Mohammed Morsi put himself above oversight and gave protection to the Islamistled assembly writing a new constitution from a looming threat of dissolution by court order. But the move is likely to fuel growing public anger that he and his Muslim Brotherhood are seizing too much power. In what was interpreted by rights activists as a de facto declaration of emergency law, one of Morsi’s decrees gave him the power to take “due measures and steps” to deal with any “threat” to the revolution, national unity and safety or anything that obstructs the work of state institutions.

Smoking turn signal should be fixed Dear Tom and Ray: I have a 1998 Ford Explorer. A few days ago, I had the left turn signal on and suddenly, it just stopped blinking. Then a very faint, almost imperceptible wisp of smoke came out of the steering column. I think I smelled a burnt-toast odor. The smoke and odor disappeared in about a second, leaving me wondering if I had imagined it all. A while later, the turn signal started working again. Am I going to end up being one of those people stranded on the side of the highway watching their car go up in flames?

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi Please help! My boyfriend insists that this is serious. But for me, it’s really easy to ignore the problem (if it IS a problem), because it’s working fine again now. — Judy TOM: Well, just to be on the safe side, I wouldn’t wear any flammable fabrics for a while. And avoid using hair spray before getting into the car. RAY: It’s potentially dan-

gerous, Judy. The smoke is coming from your multifunction switch, which is the switch operated by your turn-signal stalk. It often controls several things, like the windshield wipers and, in some cars, the headlights and high beams, too. TOM: Yours is arcing. When the two metal contacts of the switch no longer make firm contact — because they’re corroded or they’re worn down — the electricity will “jump” across the connection in the form of a spark. RAY: And we all know that where there’s spark, there’s — uh, sometimes

fire, eventually. So, WILL your car definitely turn into a rolling barbecue grill? No. But CAN it, based on this problem? Yes. Definitely. TOM: Plus, you know what the problem is, and you know what the solution is — a new multifunction switch for a couple of hundred bucks from the dealer, or probably less from an independent shop. So why not just be safe and take care of it, instead of having to drive with one hand on the wheel and one hand always on a venti iced coffee, which you can use to douse any sudden flames?

WWII letter found ELMIRA, N.Y. (AP) — A postcard mailed nearly 70 years ago has finally arrived at the former upstate New York home of the couple who sent it. The postcard was sent July 4, 1943, from Rockford, Ill., to sisters Pauline and Theresa Leisenring in Elmira. Their brother, George Leisenring, was stationed at Rockford’s Medical Center Barracks at Camp Grant, an Army post during World War II. The postcard reads in part, “Dear Pauline and Theresa, We arrived safe, had a good

The collision occurred in extremely foggy conditions at about 8:45 a.m.

Carroll said uninjured drivers tried to help as authorities sorted through the wreckage. “It’s just people helping people,” Carroll said. “The foremost thing in this holiday season is how other travelers were helping us when we were overwhelmed, sitting and holding, putting pressure on people that were injured.”

Demolition crews have removed the resort’s damaged boardwalk. And Akers said construction on a new boardwalk is expected to begin in January and be ready by Memorial Day.

BEST Coming this November, Neosho Memorial’s new 1.5T Large Bore

629 S. Plummer Chanute, KS 66720 620-431-4000

Shambri Miller, R.T.(R)(MR), MRI technologist

MRI will provide area patients with faster scans and their doctors with better diagnostic images. The Large Bore design helps reduce the closed-in feeling of traditional MRIs and the short design allows many exams to be performed with a person’s face staying outside of the system. Neosho Memorial and KU Medical Center are the only Kansas hospitals with this new MRI. The unit’s powerful magnet provides exceptional high-quality images. More comfort, more speed, more details… want to learn more? Visit www.neoshomemorial.com.
