An anticipated field of a thousand runners and walkers, who will flee Iola’s downtown business district early Saturday as Charley Melvin did in 1905, can be thankful that Melvin chose to do his dastardly deed in the middle of the night. Had the event being commemorated occurred in mid-day, participants would battle oppressive heat and humidity, with both forecast at the upper end of the discomfort scale during daytime Friday and Saturday. As is, they will run and walk in somewhat more inviting temperatures predicted for the low 70s by 12:26 a.m. Saturday. The race — many walkers will be out for a stroll — will cap activities that start late Friday afternoon and will go on throughout the evening. be the Carla Capper Included and Jaymewill Browning much-awaited “drag race,” featuring of the finest anyonesome wants in aarea’s couple of men and women dressed in drag. days,” Capper said.

CAIRO (AP) — An Islamist-dominated panel began a fast-track vote on a final draft of a new Egyptian constitution today, pushing through the document despite liberals’ boycott in a move likely to stoke a deepening political crisis between the Islamist president and the opposition. The assembly, overwhelmingly made up of allies of President Mohammed Morsi, abruptly moved up the vote — which hadn’t been expected to take place for another two months — in order to pass the draft before Egypt’s Supreme Constitution Court rules on Sunday on whether to dissolve the panel. The vote escalates a confrontation that has already thrown Egypt into turmoil, between Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood supporters on one side and a largely secular and liberal opposition and the nation’s judiciary on the other. It was sparked when Morsi last week granted himself near absolute powers to neutralize the judiciary, the last branch of the state not in his hands.

The confrontation has already led to street clashes between the two camps — and more violence is possible. At least 200,000 people protested in Cairo’s Tahrir square earlier this week against Morsi’s decrees. The opposition plans another large protest for Friday, and the Brotherhood has called a similar massive rally for the following day. Only a week ago, Morsi had given the 100-member panel two more months to try to iron out the sharp differences over the draft after his edicts barred the courts from dissolving the body. But when the Constitutional Court defied his decree and said Wednesday that it would rule on the panel’s legitimacy, the date of the vote was immediately moved up. Over the past week, about 30 members have pulled out of the assembly to protest what they call the hijacking of the process by Islamists loyal to Morsi. As today’s session began, the assembly held a vote to formally remove 11 of those who withdrew and replace them with reserve members — who largely belong to the Islamist camp.

Wild coyotes ‘chilling’ in Wrigley field By BARBARA RODRIGUEZ Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) — Wild baseball fans might be a standard sight at Wrigley Field, but a pair of wild coyotes milling around Chicago’s historic ballpark — surrounded on all sides by bars, restaurants and busy streets — wasn’t what one photographer was expecting on a busy Friday night. So he quickly grabbed his camera. “They were just kind of chilling,” freelance photographer Will Byington said. “They were hanging out and not even doing much. They were kind of just checking out the scene on a Friday night in Wrigleyville. It was like they were on a date, taking a stroll.” Byington said he was shooting a concert at a bar across the street from

the stadium in the Wrigleyville neighborhood, notoriously crowded and often rowdy on weekend nights, when he saw the two coyotes hanging out by the statute of former Chicago Cubs player Ernie Banks, near the ticketing area. “It was kind of like they were looking for tickets,” the 34-year-old Chicago resident laughed. “They went by the ticket window and unfortunately found it was closed, so they were ready to move onto the bar.” Wildlife ecologist Stanley Gehrt, who has extensively studied coyotes living in and around Chicago, said coyotes have been in the area for the past decade. He said the latest data shows there are at least 2,000 coyotes in Cook County, where Chicago is located.

Heroic snake-bitten dog heads overseas for reunion By DESIREE STENNETT Orlando Sentinel

in Spain, he and Eierle’s mother, Gudrun Mastriano, were headed home after a walk when they came across a highly venomous cottonmouth snake. Mastriano said the deadly snake was inches from her feet when it lunged toward them. Dante’s protective instincts took over, and the 3-year-old Labrador bounded in front of her and dragged the snake away. In the tussle, Dante was bitten on his face and leg. The snake’s lethal venom caused

ORLANDO, Fla. — When U.S. Navy Cmdr. Carl Eierle and his wife, Charlotte, moved to a Madrid naval base in September, they were disappointed that they had to leave their black lab, Dante, behind for a few weeks. But Dante’s extended stay in Kissimmee may be the reason Charlotte Eierle’s mother is still alive. One week before Dante was to make the 4,500-mile journey to join his owners

In the past two months, Dante had seven treatments in the SPCA’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy unit. The treatments cost about $125 per visit and reduce the swelling safely and painlessly by delivering concentrated oxygen into the damaged cells to speed healing, said Kim Domokos, one of the SPCA veterinarians who treated Dante. “We’re just happy to see him healthy and going home for the holidays,� said Domokos, who was also on hand for Dante’s farewell at the airport. Mastriano sobbed as she loaded Dante into his large gray pet carrier, which carried the notification that he was a “Traveling Hero� and should be handled with care. She said she is already planning a trip to Spain to visit Dante and her daughter in September.

Opinion

Let’s look south with fresh eyes Guess which nation is the largest exporter of flat screen televisions. Not China. Not any of the Asian Tigers. No, its our neighbor to the south — Mexico. Mexico also leads the world in exporting BlackBerry smart phones and refrigeratorfreezers. Economists calculate that by 2018 — only five years away — Americans will import more from Mexico than from any other country. As the Economist magazine observed, “Made in China” is giving way to “Hecho en Mexico.” U.S. political pollsters learned Nov. 6 that Hispanics made the difference in the presidential election. What they didn’t broadcast was that the immigration rate has slowed to a trickle. As a matter of fact, recent statistics show that more Mexicans and other Spanish-speakers are moving back home from the U.S. than are coming north because job opportunities are better there. The unemployment rate in Mexico is about half that of the U.S. Mexico’s booming economy is bringing other changes that rising personal wealth creates. In the 1960s, the Economist reported, the average Mexican woman had seven children. She now has two. Within a decade Mexico’s fertility rate will fall below that of the United States. The number of potential border-hoppers is falling rapidly. But the U.S. has been slow to recognize what’s going on with its very-important neighbor. We are busy building border fences and subjecting every vehicle that crosses the 2,000mile border to cubic-inch by cubic-inch searches and reams of paperwork when we should be partnering with Mexican businesses to create more jobs on both sides of the border. In terms of gross national product, Mexico ranks just ahead of South Korea. In 2011, the Mexican economy grew faster than Brazil’s. Economists ex-

pect it to do it again in 2012. And Mexicans are very much a part of U.S. life. About one in 10 Mexican citizens lives in the U.S. Add in their American-born children, the Economist article reports, and that makes about 33 million people — or about a 10th of the U.S. population. Clearly, the U.S. government and Americans in general need to pay far more attention to Mexico, to learn about its extraordinary progress and to explore ways to work as closely with Mexico and Mexicans as we work with Canada and Canadians. WORKING TOGETHER on the inter-connected problems of violence in Mexico and along the border and the importation of illegal drugs would be a good place to start. Mexico’s effort to control its drug cartels has resulted in 60,000 deaths. That violence can be reduced by better police work in Mexico. But the U.S. can help by stopping the flow of automatic rifles and pistols into Mexico from our country and by finding ways to make selling drugs to Americans less profitable. Mexico’s outgoing president, Felipe Calderon, said it is “impossible” to stop the drug trade. Impossible because it is so enormously profitable. A huge percentage of that profit comes from U.S. addicts and recreational users. It is a corollary fact that U.S. drug buyers and arms dealers are responsible for tens of thousands of Mexican drug war deaths. We should consider it our problem and join with Mexico to fight it more successfully. On a more positive front, the United States and Mexico also can work more closely together on the development of Mexico’s untapped and unmeasured stores of oil and natural gas. Energy independence for our tri-country region — Canada, the United States and Mexico — is a very real possibility. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

Mrs. B needs all the facts on poverty Kansas First Lady Mary Brownback has accepted a difficult responsibility. As unofficial adviser to a task force studying ways to reduce childhood poverty in the state, she might be required eventually to deliver bad news to her husband. It all depends on how seriously the governor-appointed panel accepts its task. The current reality for young Kansans is somewhat dire. More than 21 percent of Kansas children live in poverty, defined for a family of four as making less than $23,050. “This matter is vitally important because poverty affects every aspect of children’s lives — their development, their ability to learn at school and their hopes for the future,” Mary Brownback said. Kansas certainly isn’t the only state dealing with this crisis. Nationally, the rate of childhood poverty is 23 percent. The Great Recession helped boost the numbers, although the United States historically has one of the highest rates in the world. Among developed countries, only Mexico, Chile and Turkey have higher rates than the U.S. Gov. Sam Brownback wants to tackle the problem. Such a focus would be laudable under normal conditions. But this is Sam Brownback, king of the ultra-conservatives. Based upon the first meeting of the Governor’s Task Force on Reducing Childhood Poverty, more attention likely will be paid to the governor’s social agenda instead of the economic forces at play. The panel heard from Ron Haskins, a senior fellow with The Brookings Institution, who said a leading cause of child poverty was the increase in non-marital births.

The governor has indicated he wants greater collaboration between state agencies, faith-based groups and other organizations to address childhood poverty. And while we have nothing against such a plan, that can’t be the only approach. “(Children) need a mom, they need a dad, they need consistency,” Haskins said. “... if that occurs, it has major impacts on development.” Page Walley, a director with Casey Family Programs, told the task force it needed to reduce the number of children removed from parents and placed in foster homes. Linda Malone-Colon, a university psychologist, believes the state’s sex-education requirements should stress the importance of religious faith in the development of healthy marriages. WE CAN’T SAY we’re surprised by the direction. The governor had indicated he wants greater collaboration between state agencies, faith-based groups and other organizations to address the problem. And while we have nothing against such a plan, that can’t be the only approach. Perhaps Mary Brownback can offer some of the sobering reality to her well-meaning husband. Items such as why are fewer Kansas children benefiting from the Temporary Assistance for Families Program or the Kansas Child Care Assistance Program. According to Shannon Cotsoradis, president and CEO of Kansas Action for Children: “Several policy changes that took effect Nov. 1 might be making it harder for

families to utilize TAF and child care subsidies. Both of these programs strengthen the Kansas economy and allow more parents to enter and remain in the work force.” Or maybe the first lady can ask why the governor and state legislature agreed to an unprecedented reduction in income tax rates while at the same time eliminating various tax credits, such as the food sales tax rebate and breaks for child care and renters. The combination of these two reforms will end up with every household making more than $25,000 receiving a decrease. Everybody earning less than that — some 41 percent of Kansans — will have a net increase. The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy calculates that a Kansas family of four earning $17,000 will end up $294 poorer next year because of the extremely regressive tax policies enacted. Does anybody else see the potential for higher childhood poverty rates beginning next year? Will this task force be able to articulate such concerns? Perhaps the first lady can, as we’ve seen what happens when legislators and staff buck the governor. Their tenure in office is shortened significantly. Surely Mary Brownback wouldn’t receive the same type of retaliation. — The Hays Daily News

Frank Goddard and Jerry Skidmore met with the District 257 board of education last night to ask that it take a look at Iola High’s athletic future. The two represented the SPUR club, which exists to boost IHS sports. They presented a petition signed by 185 citizens asking that the school schedule games with 3-A schools which are more likely to be of the same enrollment size as IHS. Principal Don Bain said other smaller high schools had been exploring similar changes. ***** TOPEKA (AP) — The Kansas Supreme Court ruled Saturday that an attempt by the Kansas Legislature to legalize bingo is unconstitutional. The ruling grew out of a District Court decision in Iola a year or so ago declaring that slot machines had been legalized by the controversial bingo bill. The Supreme Court declined to rule on that point, saying it was immaterial, since the law was void due to its contraven-

tion of the constitutional ban on lotteries. ***** The Iola American Legion Club may ask for a rehearing of the case in which the Kansas Supreme Court ruled that a 1971 law which attempted to legalize bingo in non-profit organizations was invalid because of the constitutional ban on lotteries. The local Legion had been holding bingo games since the law was passed. The court ruled unanimously that the constitutional ban took precedence over any legislative action. ***** President Richard Nixon carried 49 of the 50 states to win reelection over Democrat George McGovern. Gov. Robert Docking won an unprecedented fourth term over Republican Morris Kay. Robert V. Talkington racked up large margins in every county in the district to defeat Democrat John Lewis for the state senate; George Works of Humboldt defeated Democrat Don Hunt for the District 10 seat in the legislature; and Phyllis DeTar became the

first woman ever to serve on the Allen County Commission by defeating Moran businessman Sinnie Mog for the Second District seat. All of the other county officials were re-elected unopposed. Hunt, a college student, carried the First and Third wards in Iola and won the city, 1,205 to 1,138. Works won the seat, 3,788 to 3,056. ***** Self Service Grocery, 119 E. Street, is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a sale, door prizes and an appearance by Miss Kansas 1972, according to Bill Burcham, owner and manager. ***** MORAN — The newly chartered Citizens State Bank here will open its doors for the first time sometime the middle of this month. Alden Ensminger, one of the bank’s directors, said they are aiming for a Nov. 11 opening. The bank will be the first in Moran since the Great Depression. Earl Hays will be the chief executive officer. He was a vice president of Farmers State Bank in Oakley for 10 years. He and wife Jackie have seven children.

H Facility property taxes. Currently the school district is in a tough situation. If building a new facility is put off or not done, then the school district will have to continue to spend money on renovations, which eventually will lead to a request for a general obligation bond— and higher taxes — to deal with renovations and upgrades, just to maintain the status quo. “Do you keep dumping money into 100-year-old buildings or do you invest and build something new,” said Scott Stanley, director of operations. “We keep renovating rooms that weren’t meant to be classrooms.” In addition to providing students, faculty and staff with an appropriate working and learning environment, a new facility would keep Iola in competition with surrounding communities. Chanute and Garnett both have built new facilities and Garnett soon will build a new hospital. “It really worries me,” said Brian Pekarek, superintendent of schools. “We have Chanute with a new hospital, new school and Garnett with a new hospital, new school.” Schools are a major driving force for residential decisions among homeowners with families. “What would happen to Iola if we don’t,” Lisa Wicoff said. “Kids are resilient,

The final interview process will be in open session at a board meeting. Once hired, the architectural team will develop plans for a school. “We don’t have to keep the architect if we are unhappy with the product, we won’t be locked into one option,” Pekarek said.

may be more to a split personality than meets the eye. When people on the streets are attacked by a strange man known as Mr. Hyde, the trail of evidence seems to lead to the good doctor. The play does a fantastic job of keeping the eye of the audience. Sets are simple and move quickly — a scene can quickly change from Jekyll’s home office to a morgue in a matter of seconds. The action never slows as the tragedy and horror of this classic tale unfolds. It is difficult to describe the roles of the actors, especially that of Mr. Hyde. He is actually played by four different actors. Throughout the scenes, Mr. Hyde’s different personalities and desires are represented by several actors, often at the same time. This unique effect gives the audience a very real feeling of a man with multiple sides, and multiple identities. The role of Dr. Jekyll is played by Micah Reynolds. He tackles the role well as the good-hearted doctor who falls deeper

and deeper into darkness with his counterpart, Mr. Hyde. Reynolds plays the differences to a T, making the viewers believe that the men are truly unique from each other. However, as the play nears the end, the clear difference between the man and the monster don’t seem as black and white. Nick Thomsen’s dark representation of Mr. Hyde perfectly compliments flow of the play. He also plays the role of Gabriel Utterson, colleague of Dr. Jekyll’s who is hot on the trail of unraveling the mystery of the murders and attacks. He is the skeptic, questioning Jekyll’s relationship with Mr. Hyde. In one of the more memorable dialogues, Utterson explains that the “beast” inside man cannot be fully suppressed, saying “even a beast must be fed.” Michael Lowder, another Mr. Hyde representative, also plays Sir H. K. Lanyon. Lanyon also is a colleague of Dr. Jekyll. Lowder plays both roles well, expressing the animalistic desires of Mr.

Hyde, as well as the tragic good intentions of H. K. Lanyon. Craig Hendricks plays Mr. Hyde, and shines in the role of Sir Danvers Carew, a medical examiner who has some methods that Dr. Jekyll sees as “eccentric.” Jekyll and Carew are anything but friendly in the story, and the competition and resentment between the two begins to drift toward Jekyll’s more unpleasant persona. Krista Bonzo plays the role of Elizabeth Jelkes, a meek chambermaid who catches the eye of Mr. Hyde. Her role, played with a great attention to detail, serves as catalyst for Hyde’s behaviors. The two fall into a twisted romance — one that begins to be muddled between Jekyll and Hyde. Matthew Wynn plays an alternate of Hyde’s personality, as well as Poole, another of Jekyll’s medical colleagues. Poole, along with Utterson, begin to question the strange relationship between Jekyll and Hyde, eventually discovering the condition “that has no

name.” Dakota Gibson is another version of Mr. Hyde. He also plays the role of Enfield, Jekyll’s butler, to perfection. It seems as if Gibson was meant to portray the faithful servant, his accent and mannerism truly capture the classic English butler. Brianna Holliday serves multiple roles, including that of an unfortunate prostitute and an old woman who witnesses one of Mr. Hyde’s more gruesome acts. The poster for the play states “PG-14,” and is well deserved. The subject matter delves into some of the darkest areas of the human mind, without much conscience. However, for those up for the action, this story should not be missed. It keeps audiences riveted through numerous scenes as they see Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde spiral further and further into madness.

That pushed the jackpot even higher, said Chuck Strutt, executive director of the Multi-State Lottery Association.

And it happened again for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing.

BP suspended from federal contracts By SEAN COCKERHAM McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — The U.S. government is suspending oil giant BP from winning new federal contracts or oil leases, saying the company's “lack of business integrity” makes it an unfit partner in the wake of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The Environmental Protection Agency says the suspension is indefinite. It will last “until the company can provide sufficient evidence to EPA demonstrating that it meets federal business standards.” The action stems from criminal charges against BP for the Deepwater Horizon disaster that began on April 20, 2010, killing 11 workers and leading to a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. BP this month agreed to plead guilty and pay a $4.5 billion penalty. The government also is pursuing a civil lawsuit against BP over the spill. The Environmental Protection Agency's decision

suspends BP from new federal leases and contracts, but the company will be able to continue existing arrangements with the government. The British oil company is the leading supplier of fuel to the U.S. military, with a contract worth more than $1 billion a year. It also is among the top drillers in Alaska and the

largest producer of oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico. BP’s suspension was announced just before a lease sale Wednesday in the western Gulf of Mexico. Tommy Beaudreau, director of the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, said the government would not award “any bid for which BP was the high bidder until the sus-

pension was resolved.” But Beaudreau didn’t join the EPA in slamming the company. “BP has gone through significant internal reforms,” he said. “I believe BP is genuine and sincere about reforming the way it does business offshore and making real changes not only to its practices but its culture.”

RED DEVILS DOUBLE DIP ON VICTORIES Allen men find shooting touch in 92-62 romp By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

Allen Community College found an effective recipe Wednesday to end a four-game losing streak: ball movement, hot shooting and stifling defense. The Red Devils raced to a double digit lead in the game’s first six minutes and never looked back in a 92-62 win over visiting North Central Missouri. “We’ve got a bunch of guys who can make shots,” Red Devil

head coach Andy Shaw said. “Tonight they did that.” None were hotter than 6-3 sophomore guard Bryce Schippers, who drained four 3-pointers in the game’s first six minutes, en route a to a game-high 24 points. While Schippers dominated the outside, Andrew Rountree made himself at home in the lane, repeatedly driving around, through and occasionally over See ALLEN | Page B2

Allen Community College’s Kendra Taiclet (22) defends against North Central Missouri guard Whitney Bennett Wednesday. Taiclet scored eight early points to kick-start the Red Devils to a 69-61 victory.

Several step up for ACC women By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

Convincing his Allen Community College players they’re a quality basketball team when they’re not hitting from the field has been one of Red Devil women’s head coach Mark James’ challenges thus far in the 2012-13 season. On Tuesday, the Red Devils proved they’re a force to contend with even when the shots aren’t falling. Allen received key contributions up and down its lineup, racing to a 20-point first-half lead against visiting North Central Missouri College in a 69-61 victory. “We have so many weapons that we really don’t have what you would call a ‘best five’ from our starting lineup and we must play well for us to be successful,” James said. “We have a number of people who can step up for us, and tonight a bunch of them did.” Iolan Kendra Taiclet, for exam-

ple, got off to a blistering start, draining a pair of 3-pointers en route to eight points within the first four minutes. Ebonie Jones picked up the baton shortly after Taiclet’s outburst with two 3-pointers of her own, the second of which gave Allen a 20-9 lead by the 13:30 mark. The lead ballooned to 20 by the 8-minute mark before North Central Missouri found its offensive footing. Samone Redditt keyed a 19-9 run that cut Allen’s lead to 40-30 at the break. The Pirates would have been even closer were it not for Leslie Ware’s clutch 3-pointer with 4 1/2 minutes left as the shot clock was about to expire. “It wasn’t Leslie’s best shooting game, but that sequence was huge for us,” James said. North Central cut the gap to six, 42-36, early in the second half before Jones and Brittney Redmond stepped up for the Red Devils. Jones sandwiched a pair of in-

side buckets around a pair of Day free throws to push the lead to 4836. Then Redmond dished out a pair of nifty assists, to Hannah Blackwell and Endesha Flanigan, as the lead grew back to 15. The Pirates never got within six points of the lead down the stretch, courtesy of Allen’s 8-of-10 shooting from the free throw line. The 5-foot, 3-inch Jones led a balanced scoring effort with 14 points and six rebounds, many of her points coming inside. “Both Ebonie and Leslie are only 5-3, but we’re of the opinion that height has nothing to do with getting rebounds,” James said. “They work their tails off to get open inside.” Day finished with 11 points, Ware with 10 and Taiclet and Blackwell eight apiece. “Kendra’s quick start was almost a carbon copy of our earlier game with these guys,” James See WOMEN | Page B2

Deer season starts with a bang for locals CMS girls sweep, Lancer boys earn split By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

COLONY — Crest Middle School’s girls swept a doubleheader Tuesday at home against Pleasanton. The Lancer boys, meanwhile, split their contests. The Lady Lancer A team rolled to a 44-16 victory, led by Miranda Golden’s 21 points. Taryn Covey followed with 12, Karlee Hammond had seven and Laurel Godders four. The B team cruised to a 12-2 victory. Godderz and Camryn Strickler both scored four for Crest. Cassie Bowen and Kaitlyn LaCross had two points apiece. In boys action, Pleasanton edged Crest 19-17 in the A team matchup. Carter Messenger paced the Lancer A team squad with nine points. Gage Adams added four points. Blake Ashmore and Nate Berry scored two apiece. The Crest boys B team won 6-2 over Pleasanton. Kanon Coberly, Chad Classen and Blake Ashmore each scored two points.

Mitch Bolling, owner of the Moran Locker, was kept busy Wednesday as the 2012 firearm deer hunting season started.

MORAN — Mitch Bolling didn’t have much time to talk Wednesday morning, but he was more than willing to listen. As scores of hunters took advantage of the start of firearm deer hunting season, Bolling set up shop at Moran Locker. Sure enough, the first wave of hunters and their harvest started arriving not long after sunrise. “It’s almost like a holiday,” one hunter told Bolling. The pace was steady throughout the morning as the tagged animals were brought in for processing. “It probably takes me eight to 10 minutes to skin one — without interruption,” Bolling said. But there were plenty of interruptions, as hunters arrived with their animals. Marlin Danford and Derrick Mathews were two such hunters, both of whom bagged their animals shortly after sunrise. Danford shot a doe from about 25 yards; Mathews a buck from closer to 100 yards. The buck was an older animal, Danford concluded, by looking at the worn antlers and lack of teeth in the animal’s mouth. “The rack wasn’t that big, but he was still a big buck,” Danford said. “We aren’t worried about that part. We just want the food.” Jason Hawley of rural Humboldt got plenty of food on the 11-point buck he shot shortly af-

ter sunrise. He recounted seeing the animal moving around well before sunrise, likely because of the light of the setting full moon. “He walked right up to me,” Hawley said. “I wasn’t sure he was going to stop.” Finally the animal did, about 25 yards away from Hawley in his stand. The animal was felled seconds later from a single shot. “That’s the biggest buck I’ve ever caught,” Hawley said. He plans to have the head mounted. “My wife told me I could have one mounted,” Hawley said, noting he filled that quota years ago. “But I called her this morning and told her we’d have to get rid of the old one because this one’s taking its place.” As more hunters gathered at the Moran Locker back door, Bolling worked steadily indoors, skinning the animals quickly and efficiently. “I like it when it’s steady, but not too busy,” Bolling said. While opening day invariably brings in a rush of hunters who capture their game early on, Bolling figures the pace will wane slightly until Saturday. “That should be our busy day,” he said. “I don’t know if the warm temperatures will affect anything. It was warm last winter, too, and we were still plenty busy.” Sharon Bolling, Mitch’s wife, See DEER | Page B2

Jayhawks look to end on high note BY KATHLEEN GIER Associated Press

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas has one last chance to leave its mark on the Big 12 this season. Even though the Jayhawks enter their finale against West Virginia on Saturday at 1-10 overall and winless in the Big 12, they still have the chance to finish the year by leading the league in rushing and by sending running back James Sims over the 1,000yard mark. In a season of far too many failures, both would be welcome achievements. “That would mean a tremendous amount to all of us,” said running back Taylor Cox. “It speaks volumes about the hard work and

dedication we put in day-inand-day-out.” Kansas trails Baylor by four-tenths of a yard in pergame average in the Big 11, and Sims is just 44 yards shy of his barrier, something that would have seemed almost impossible when the sophomore was suspended for the first three games for violating team rules. Kansas has lost nine consecutive games, and hasn’t won a Big 12 game since Nov. 6, 2010, when it beat Colorado under fired coach Turner Gill. But the one bit of success this season has come from the run game, and fittingly, that becomes the focus once more. The trio of Sims, Cox and Tony Pierson has combined for 18 of the team’s

FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — Former Kansas City Chiefs players and Army leaders said Wednesday that a change in culture about the risks of concussions must start at the top levels in sports and the military. The comments came during a forum at Fort Leavenworth on traumatic brain injuries, the sixth in a series of such events to bring awareness to concussions and brain injuries. Several dozen Army officers listened to the discussion, including comments by Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Willie Lanier, who said he learned the lessons early.

Now, Sims can become the first 1,000-yard rusher since Brandon McAnderson that same season. “He definitely deserves it just because the person he is and the work he puts in,” Cox said. “It is definitely good to see one of your brothers reach that milestone.” Sims has led Kansas in rushing in seven of eight games, and has gone over 100 yards in six Big 12 games, all of which has helped take some of the sting out of a disappointing year. The Jayhawks can win, at best, just two games for the second straight year. Those seniors who began their careers at Kansas have only won 11 games, and are on their third coach. “It would be easy to throw in the towel considering our record,” Cox said, “but I feel like this team has too much pride to let all of our hard work go by the wayside.”

merous concussions in his rookie season, including one that didn’t manifest until a week later. Lanier says he changed his playing technique as a result, but only after he sought answers to his injury at the Mayo Clinic. “It wasn’t hard for me to do. I figured out I had to change the way I play the game or I don’t play,” Lanier said. “It just becomes practical that if you’re going to do it, you better do it smart. Because if you don’t do it smart you have all types of potential risks that

you really shouldn’t take.” The military has been looking at the impact of traumatic brain injuries as soldiers return from combat. The Army and NFL signed a joint letter in August announcing the partnership. The NFL faces lawsuits by thousands of former players who say the league withheld information on the harmful effects concussions can have on their health. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday in Detroit that the partnership with the Army

is about sharing what is known about head injuries and protocols for clearing soldiers and players to return to action, whether it be the battlefield or playing field. A portion of the program is changing the culture and the soldier and player frame of mind. “It’s about trying to combat the warrior mentality, which is you want to be on the battlefield or what you want to be on the field, but you need to be healthy and you need to identify yourself when you have an injury,” Goodell said.

Pirate defenders. Rountree connected on 10 of 14 field goals while scoring 22 points. All told, the Red Devils connected on 12 of 24 3-pointers, and on 53 percent (38 of 71) from the field. The key, Shaw said, was Allen’s ability to move the ball. The Red Devils had 19 assists. “That’s a product of sharing the ball — finding the open guy,” Shaw said. “That’s something we strive for, and tonight we were able to do that.” Allen also was able to persistently harass North Central post players inside, then limiting the Pirates to only one shot per possession. The Red Devils held a commanding 51 to 36 rebounding advantage. Rountree’s dunk at the 14-minute mark of the first half gave Allen a 20-9 lead, part of a 19-5 spurt. The Pirates were within 12, 26-14, when Allen put the game away with a 12-2 run, keyed by a pair of field goals and a free throw by Ricky Roberts. Allen led 51-28 at the break. The advantage moved beyond the 30-point barrier with Rountree’s basket with about 13 minutes left in the game. “A LOT OF our success depends on our defense,” Shaw said. “The guys did a great job of getting stops.” By then, the only intrigue centered on whether Iolan Clint Heffern would reach the scorebook. Heffern is attending ACC on a baseball scholarship and walked on with the basketball team. Heffern saw the court for the first time with about 4 minutes left in the game.

Fountain and Ben Uno each had three steals. Roberts chipped in with two thefts. Eddie Poland and Reg-

Salina receives more time for water cleanup SALINA, Kan. (AP) — A federal judge has granted authorities in Salina and the federal government more time to agree on a financial settlement to cover the cost of cleaning up contaminated groundwater and soil at a former Air Force base in the city. The city of Salina, Salina Airport Authority, Salina School District and Kansas State University at Salina filed a federal lawsuit in Kansas City, Kan., in 2010, seeking to recoup the cost of cleaning up the industrial solvent TCE, or trichloroethylene, left at the former Schilling Air Force base. The government and local authorities are drafting a consent decree to resolve the case and agree on how much money Salina needs to clean up the pollution. No amounts

have been disclosed. The Salina groups reached a nonbinding proposed settlement with the federal government and Department of Defense in February. The court then gave the groups until Tuesday to finalize that settlement but both sides asked for an extension Monday. Federal District Judge Carlos Murguia on Tuesday gave the groups until Feb. 15 to agree a final settlement. Tim Rogers, executive director of the Salina Airport Authority, told The Salina Journal on Tuesday that the two parties needed more time. “Settlement discussions and work on the consent decree are continuing and the process continues to be productive,” Rogers said.

Officials to certify election results TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas officials are preparing to certify results from this month’s general election. The State Board of Canvassers scheduled a meeting this afternoon to review totals from races for congressional, legislative and other state offices. The board is led by Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Gov. Sam Brownback and Attorney General Derek Schmidt also are members, though they can send representatives rather than attending themselves. All are Republicans. The meeting comes amid a debate over a new Kansas law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls. Critics contend the law suppresses turnout. But Kobach has reported that only about 700 people were required to cast provisional ballots because they went to the polls Nov. 6 without valid. That’s out of more than 1.1 million Kansans who participated.

Lawrence hospital seeks trauma status LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence Memorial Hospital wants to be designated to treat lower-level trauma patients. The hospital’s board of trustees voted Wednesday to start the process leading to a designation as a Level 4 trauma center, a level recently created by the state health department. Level 4 gives emergency

responders the option to send patients to Lawrence Memorial to be stabilized before being sent to other hospitals. The Lawrence JournalWorld reports that people who suffer serious injuries in accidents in Douglas County currently are sent to hospitals in Kansas City, Kan., Overland Park and Topeka.

Rove not optimistic about ‘fiscal cliff’ By ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Republican political strategist Karl Rove told Kansas cattlemen Wednesday he isn’t optimistic that the nation will avoid the so-called fiscal cliff, a package of sharp tax increases and spending cuts that will take effect next year unless Congress and the White House replace them. But he also told the more than 600 cattle producers attending the Kansas Livestock Association’s 100th convention that he was optimistic the country would ultimately resolve its deficit problem. Rove said nation is losing sight of the bigger issue of getting the economy growing again. Responding to an audience question about uniting the Republican Party, Rove said the GOP needs leaders who can create an environment of forbearance. “I don’t think social issues splinter the Republican Party,” Rove said. “I think what splinters the Republican Party is intolerance and judgmental language.” Rove said a reversal of abortion rights is unlikely in the immediate future, and that the Republican Party should encourage “a culture of life” through such things as dealing with teen pregnancy and

encouraging adoptions. “ W e can’t go out there and say things l i k e , Rove there is legitimate rape,” he said, referring to a statement that Republican Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri made during his unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate. Rove also said the party needs to take “a practical approach” to immigration reform that requires illegal immigrants to pay a penalty but allows them to eventually obtain citizenship. “American citizenship is too precious a thing to give it away that easily,” he said. He favors allowing illegal immigrants who have committed no crimes to remain in the country if they pay a fine and go to “the end of the line” before they can be considered for citizenship in 10 or more years. He would also increase border security and offer a guest worker program. He said Hispanic immigrants share Republican values of family, religion and entrepreneurship. “We have a political problem, and that is the most rapidly growing part of the electorate,” Rove said.

What lies ahead in chronic heart failure Dear Drs. Donohue and Roach: I am 71 years old and

have been diagnosed with chronic heart failure. In October of last year, I had triple bypass surgery, but now I'm in good health. Some things I have read about chronic heart failure are unnerving. Will you give me your take on what lies ahead for me? — S.T. Answer: Heart failure, chronic heart failure and congestive heart failure are the same condition. It’s one of the most common reasons why older people are hospitalized. The basic problem is that the heart has become so weak that it circulates blood poorly. Such poor circulation permits fluid to ooze out of blood vessels and “congest” tissues in the feet, ankles and lower legs. The lungs fill with

Dr. Keith Roach

Dr. Paul Donohue

To Your Good Health

To Your Good Health

fluid, which brings on heart failure’s cardinal feature — gasping for breath on even slight exertion. Other signs of heart failure are breathlessness when lying in bed, heart enlargement, seen on X-rays, and the doctor's discovery of lung sounds that indicate the lungs have fluid in them. Numerous conditions lead to heart failure. At the top of the list is coronary artery disease, blockage of heart

arteries that often brings on a heart attack. This must be why your heart failed. You did have surgery to correct blocked heart arteries, but they did their damage well before surgery took place. Heart valve problems, high blood pressure and atrial fibrillation are other causes of heart failure. Medicines usually can get the heart beating with greater vigor and can lessen or abolish most symptoms. Any-

thing that affects heart function must be treated. High blood pressure, for example, has to be lowered. You might think that inactivity is best for your heart; it isn’t. Your doctor will outline a program that keeps you active to the level that your heart can tolerate. Walking is one example, but more strenuous exercise is encouraged when your heart becomes stronger. You should be on a low-salt diet. You ought not to be discouraged about your outlook. The life span of people with congestive heart failure has increased by 15 percent in men and by 5 percent in women in just the past decade. The increment in women’s life span is smaller because women live longer, on average, than men.

Free spirit child — perfectly normal Hi, Carolyn: My wife and I have a son who is almost 8. He is sooo fun to be with — a happy kid who loves mudholes, being barefoot, playing drums wildly and goofing around with his friends (and he has gobs of them). He’s always up for an adventure with us, his friends or by himself. This kid has gusto. My question is this: He doesn’t want to be in sports, or any kind of lessons, or theater — nothing! He just wants to go at life freestyle. Are we [stinky] parents for not enrolling him in, like, anything extracurricular?

We offer, but should we be pushing him to do moreorganized stuff ? All of his friends are involved in these kinds of things, so it feels weird to be the only family not doing it, too. Are we following his bliss, or neglecting his needs? Answer: I just felt several generations of former kids slap their foreheads. What you just described is an idyllic childhood. I realize it’s nearly impossible not to peer over at how other families raise their kids. But the ones worth our voyeuristic admiration are the ones do-

ing what their kids need — not the ones doing what societies or other parents or D-1 recruiters value. Most kids, if not all, need bare feet, toy drums and

plenty of room for ad­ven­ture — and, beyond that, if a particular kid shows an interest in an organized activity, then by all means parents should feed it. So, worry about what your son isn’t getting if and when he falls short of important milestones for his age. (Develop a few sane, disinterested sources for this — pediatrician, teachers, a veteran parent or two.) Otherwise, take a cue from the dude and enjoy this giddy ride.

DAILY CRYPTOQUOTES - Here’s how to work it:

Sudoku is like a crossword puzzle, but uses numbers instead of words. The puzzle is a box of 81 squares, subdivided into 3x3 cubes of 9 squares each. Some squares are filled in with numbers. The rest should be filled in by the puzzler. Fill in the blank squares allowing the numbers 1-9 to appear only once in every row, once in every column and once in every 3x3 box. One-star puzzles are for beginners, and the difficulty gradually increases through the week to a very challenging fivestar puzzle.

Senate bill to protect email privacy, won’t hinder feds By RICHARD LARDNER Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Senate bill to protect the privacy of electronic communications won’t keep federal agents from combing through your inbox if they believe a crime has been committed, legal experts say. Federal and state authorities still will have a robust set of tools to track down lawbreakers even as these officials oppose changes supported by a broad coalition of technology companies and public interest groups. The legislation, which the Senate Judiciary Committee was expected to

consider Thursday, would update a 26-year-old law by requiring police to obtain a search warrant from a judge before accessing the content of all emails and other private information from Google, Yahoo and other Internet providers. Under the current law, the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act, a warrant is needed only for emails less than six months old. Supporters of the bill, sponsored by Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., say the changes are necessary to overhaul a law that is outdated in an era of

cloud computing, cheaper electronic storage, social networking and wireless phones. Such advances in technology have dramatically increased the amount of stored communications in ways no one anticipated a quarter of a century ago. The Justice Department has resisted the changes. The associate deputy attorney general, James Baker, urged the committee last year to consider the adverse impact on criminal and national security investigations if a warrant were the only means for law enforcement officials to obtain emails and other digital files.

But setting the bar higher doesn’t prevent law enforcement agencies from doing their jobs, according to current and former prosecutors, judges and attorneys who specialize in

privacy issues. Federal law enforcement authorities in four Midwestern and Southern states have been working with the more demanding warrant requirement since 2010 after an

appeals court ruled warrantless access to emails was unconstitutional. To get a warrant, a judge must have proof of probable cause that a crime is being committed.
