Iola-Humboldt rail trail takes form Dave Fontaine’s tractor backs up against the brush, pulling railroad ties from the soil and dragging them onto a nicely grated gravel pathway — the beginnings of a recreational trail that will connect Iola and Humboldt. The trail, which is tentatively named the “South Wind Trail,” will extend where the Prairie Spirit Trail ends at Riverside Park in Iola, and continue south for almost seven miles to end in Humboldt. Dave Fontaine, a local cyclist, and multiple other volunteers, including Jane and Lindsey Tweedy, have been volunteering their time since the first week in June to build the trail. Fontaine was involved in the construction of the Prairie Spirit Trail, and he said its success has been a motivator for the addition. They were hard at work on Thursday afternoon, pulling old railroad ties from the underbrush that will be used as bollards to block traffic from the points where the trail crosses the road. The Sunflower Foundation is funding the project through a $25,000 grant acquired by Thrive Allen County, along with another $25,000 grant from the Healthcare Foundation of Greater Kansas City — which was acquired by Allen County. “We have our work cut out for us, we still have a lot to do,” Fontaine said. He sported his Oakley cycling sunglasses along with his work attire, hinting that he is always a cyclist at heart. The volunteers, there are approximately eight of them, have contributed nearly 560 manhours of work with only about
$2,500 of expenses. Don Burns, a Thrive board member and South Wind Trail volunteer, said when plans started for the trail, Dave and Lisa Fontaine were two of the first people he went to. “I went to people I knew that were avid bike riders, and we have come up with a strong group of people,” Burns said.
“ ...this trail may be the prettiest six or seven miles in the whole area. — Dave Fontaine, local cyclist and volunteer

Front from left, Jane Tweedy, Lisa Fontaine and Jay Kretzmeier. Back from left, Dave Fontaine, Pat Haire, Don Burns, Tim Cox and Lindsey Tweedy. The photo was taken by Susan Weisenberger, another trail volunteer.
He said the counties of Neosho, Bourbon and Allen form the “South Wind” region, which is where volunteer Jay Kretzmeier got the idea for the name. The name is tentative due to the fact that it requires approval from the Sunflower Rail Trail Conservancy and Allen County. Lindsey Tweedy said the group started by driving through the property on 4-wheelers, scouting out the best area to start the construction of the trail. Fontaine said at the beginning, there wasn’t enough space to even drive the ATV’s they had to hold branches back and duck underneath them to get through. However, he said it has been worth the work to utilize the area. “The (Prairie Spirit) trail is pretty,” Fontaine said. “But this trail may be the prettiest six or seven miles in the whole area, mainly because it is covered.”
At left, Lindsey Tweedy, from left, Jane Tweedy and Dave Fontaine pull railroad ties from the remnants of the railroad, next to the South Wind Trail. The ties will be used as bollards that will block motorized vehicles from entering the recreational path.

Bullying sore spot for Iola High students By ALLISON TINN email@example.com
What started as an informative presentation turned into an emotional sore spot for Iola High juniors and seniors. Thursday three seniors, Kayla Knavel, Paiton True and Chloe Friederich, gave a presentation on the awareness of bullying as a project for their Career and Community Connections and Early Childhood Development classes with Krystal Henderson. The girls knew it would be a subject some wouldn’t take seriously and went into the presentation prepared. “We know it is hard to listen about (bullying) from people who are only a year older than you,”
Combs said. “But if you aren’t going to take this seriously get up and get out.” Despite the warning there were still a few kids laughing and heckling. The girls used two national examples of bullying. The first, a girl from Michigan, Whitney Kropp, was nominated as homecoming queen as a prank from her peers. She was able to turn the tables and with the support of her family, friends and community members she received a makeover and showed up to the homecoming game prideful. The next story didn’t end as well. Amanda Todd was a young
high school student who made the mistake of showing her breast on camera once. An anonymous person got their hands on the picture and posted it on Facebook. After years of tormenting, changing schools and being beat up, she decided to end her life. She tried drinking bleach and overdosing on pills. Each time her parents rushed her to the emergency room and saved her life. One day her parents were too late. They walked into her room to find their daughter dead. She had hung herself. MANY students might think See BULLYING | Page A5

SEK regional panning board plans for future By ALLISON TINN firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesday night Southeast Kansas (SEK) Regional Planning Commission board members discussed “what has happened and the future challenges we face,” interim director Dennis Arnold said. The meeting, held at Neosho County Community College, was focused on the affect of new state and federal funding positions. The SEK commission’s focus is to improve the quality of life in southeast Kansas by providing tools to create and retain jobs and increase the services available within a community. The commission offers professional development and assists in the administration of local pro-
grams and projects. “The way the agency makes money is through the fees we get to administer grants,” Arnold said. The main concern for the commission is the lack of grant availability. The organization has 35 percent fewer grants than in previous years, making it historically low. The organization has been existing on the remnants of a grant from 2009. The grant cycle runs every three or four years. Cutbacks starting hitting the grant funding in 2010. “We are looking for other revenue streams,” Arnold said. “We have to see how much we get next year. Fifteen applied this year and usually we get 60 percent so if that does happen then we will have eight (grants to adminisSee SEK | Page A5

Nov. 21, 2011, when a Humboldt officer stopped a car on Bridge Street when he noticed the occupants weren’t wearing seatbelts. Melissa Elder, 31, was driving the car. After the car stopped, Cleaver bolted, taking with him an assault rifle. The officer gave chase on foot and in a nearby alley was confronted by Cleaver, who then ran back to the car — Elder was standing outside — jumped in and sped away. Other officers joined the chase, which wove its way 8 miles to northeast of Humboldt, where Cleaver crashed the car near the intersection of Iowa Road and See CLEAVER | Page A5

We might not get along with everyone, we don’t always see eye to eye, and after all we are human.” Combs said. “But if you need help we are here.” Before the students left the seminar they were asked to sign a pledge to end bullying.

2000 Street. He disappeared into brush and timber. Allen County Sheriff Tom Williams said local officers learned that Cleaver might be in the Springfield, Mo., area. Missouri officers arrested him at a motel near Springfield Dec. 5, 2011.
Cleaver also faces manslaughter charges related to a fatal traffic accident in Neosho County in 2009. It wasn’t immediately clear if those charges had been resolved. A call to the Kansas Attorney General’s office in Topeka, which is handling the Neosho County case, was not returned Friday.

ered. Williams said Spiller conceded to the crime, under consideration of the overwhelming evidence — including the photos of Spiller at his home and the bow with its quiver resting on his couch.
Barnett said he knew when the bow had been stolen, but just needed the evidence from a “hot tip” to confirm the tip. Williams said it is sometimes rare to have stolen items recovered so quickly. He attributed the expedited recovery to the evidence gathered off of Facebook.
Jefferson students raise funds for classmate Members of Jefferson Elementary School’s staff are raising money to help Raef Casner and his mother, Lea, a single mom and paraprofessional at the school. Raef, a fifth-grader at the school, was diagnosed with liver cancer earlier this year and has been out of school because of surgery and weekly treatments, which has created an obvious financial hardship for the family. A fundraiser is in the works. Tickets are being sold for the chance to win one of 12 different gift
baskets, all filled with interesting and intriguing things. Two have K-State and KU themes, one is loaded with chocolate, another is designed for a couple’s “date night.” Tickets are available for $1 apiece or six for $5, and are available from Stephanie Bycroft at the Jefferson office and also will be on sale at Iola High basketball games. A drawing for baskets will be during halftime of the Iola High game here Dec. 18. A chili feed also is planned that from 4:30 to 8. CASH ONLY

What’s it going to take for bullying in our school to stop. Is it going to take someone killing themselves? How would that make you feel?
that problem doesn’t exist in the Iola community, but an informal poll conducted at Iola High says it is. Sixty-six percent of the school population said they have been bullied. Fifty-two percent of the school population said they have bullied someone. Eighty-nine percent said they would stand up for someone and 67 percent said they would report bullying if they saw it. Fifty-five percent of the Iola High student body said they believe bullying has become a problem at their school. “Bullying is a problem in this school, whether you want to admit it or not,” Combs said. “What’s it going to take for bullying in our school to stop,” Friederich added. “Is it going to take someone killing themselves?

He said he hopes to see the trail finished by the time spring comes, especially if the weather holds its fair temperatures. He said the trail will allow access to the public at no charge. Both of the Tweedys and Fontaine agreed that the construction would not have been possible if it weren’t for the support from the community. Joe Works, a Humboldt resident and owner of B&W Trailer Hitches, lended the use of a side cutter and tractors for the construction process. Before that point, Fontaine said his volunteers had cleared the first three miles by hand with chainsaws. Jane said she thinks it is important to use the rail trail, to help carry on the historical legacy of the railroad in Allen County. “It’s really important to protect the historical integrity of the railroad,” Jane said. “That’s why we are using the old railroad ties for bollards.” Fontaine said he was saddened to see the old railroad torn out, and he hopes that the rail trail will allow the railroad to
Santa will set up a toy shop Dec. 20-24 on Jefferson where Audacious Boutique used to be located. All children in the community who want a toy can go to the shop and visit with Santa and pick up a toy. Tracy Keagle and her husband, William, who came up with the idea, are accepting toy donations. Parents cleaning out
their kids’ gently used toys and are looking to get rid of them they can call Tracy at (620) 228-7456. Toys also can be dropped off at the Keagle residence at 207 S. Elm St. or at Annie’s Attic. The shop will be temporarily decorated like an oldtime Christmas toy shop. Cookies and hot chocolate will be served. Santa’s Toy Shop is open and free to the public.

be easily reconstructed in the future if the possibility arises. Both Lindsey and Jane have lived in Austin, Texas, for 40 years. Lindsey said he grew up in Allen County, but moved to Texas to raise a family and be near his brother. The Tweedys moved back to Allen County to take care of Lindsey’s mother, who passed away last year. He said it has been encouraging to see an area flourish in hard times - and the South Wind trail is an example of a town thriving in its community. Burns said he believes the trail will add another important amenity to Allen County. According to Kansas Parks, Wildlife and Tourism, 41,850 people have used the Prairie Spirit Trail from January to September. Burns said he hopes to see a high usage from people using the existing trail, which should positively impact businesses in the area. He said the Prairie Spirit trail received some opposition in the beginning, due to concerns regarding littering, trespassing and criminal mischief — which seemed to have

been unwarranted. The volunteers have found the success of the trail useful in meetings with the landowners bordering the new trail. The county sent letters to landowners affected by the construction, and Burns said “there hasn’t been much trouble at all.” Overall, Burns said the construction of the South Wind Trail has been a collaboration of three entities — the volunteers, conservancy and Allen county. All of the volunteers said that pathways such as the South Wind Trail and the Prairie Spirit Trail are important for cyclists’ safety as well. Fontaine said he and his wife have cycled on the public roadways before, and they can be very dangerous. He said that fact has given him some personal motivation for constructing the trail as well. “We have taken a lot of pride in the trail, I still can’t believe how much we

have done.” Burns said while the construction has been a lot of hard work, it wouldn’t have been possible if the volunteers didn’t enjoy what they have been doing. “To be honest, we’ve really had fun doing it,” Burns said. “We’re anxious to use the finished product.” The trail is completely cleared from Iola to Humboldt, with much of the pathway grated. Currently, the volunteers are working to “beautify” the trail. Fontaine said the next step is to begin installing the bollards on the crossing, add signage and posted warnings. All three volunteers agreed that the construction has shown the power of community and volunteerism. “It just shows that with a little willpower, focus and a lot of poison ivy - you can do a lot,” Fontaine said.

The Iola Register
Be local, buy local A genuine ‘feel-good’ story and invest in Iola This season’s front page visits with Iola retail merchants are the 2012 version of “be local, buy local— a smart way to live. Each one of the stories gives Register readers shopping tips for Christmas and for all of the rest of the days in the year. Iola’s stores have an amazing variety of high quality merchandise for sale. But the economist in me wants to make a stronger pitch for the benefits gained from dollars spent in Iola. When you spend $100 here at home — and, my, what a modest holiday budget that would be — about 75 percent of it stays in town. National studies show that every dollar spent locally turns over four times in the community. Spend a hundred dollars in Iola and it becomes a $400 boost right here. Spend $100 out of town and the muliplying takes place there. And, for exactly the same reason, Humboldt shoppers should shop Humboldt and the good people of Moran should spend dollars there, starting, perhaps, with top drawer meats and other good things to eat at Moran Locker. In today’s computer-dominated world, there will be those who never leave their homes to do their shopping. The Internet offers enticing purchases. All those Christmas catalogs invite us to buy over the phone or the ‘net. All it takes is a credit card and a few clicks on the keyboard. But the temptation should prompt second thoughts. Add the cost of shipping first and see if the purchase is still that inviting. Then remember how disappointed you were when the last shipment arrived and the contents were not at all what you expected. Those entrancing color photos often are the most attractive part of the merchandise offered.
Maybe the best reason to keep that credit card in the wallet is that on-line shopping is so quick and easy that it’s easy to over-do. Credit card balances carry a hefty interest rate. Yield to the temptation and those monthly additions to what was paid for stuff can become overwhelming. Be local and buy local means you have a chance to look carefully before you buy — to actually hold the item in your hand, feel the fabric, switch the gadget on and see if it works, before you buy. Be local, buy local and you will become aware of the real bargains you can find right here in Iola. Here’s another thought: How many people does Amazon employ locally? Zero. Iola workers pay taxes and because they do, they make it easier for the rest of the community to pay the cost of running the city with its utility systems, of keeping the streets in good shape, support the Bowlus Fine Arts Center, keep the public schools and Allen Community College high quality to help Iola’s youngsters meet their potential. The more taxpayers there are, the less each taxpayer must pay. But perhaps the very best reason of all to Be Local, Buy Local is to invest in the future of the community. The more support that Iolans give to Iola’s merchants, the more certain the future of those merchants becomes. Stores that aren’t patronized must close their doors. Those supported by the community expand their lines of merchanise, remodel to make their businesses more attractive and hire more clerks so they are able to offer better service. Be Local. Buy Local. Build Iola. Make it a better place for you and your family to live. Happy shopping.
Kaitlyn Smutz is an honest and caring young girl. No one is happier than Alex Gumfory, a senior at Iola High. Last month during a school
At Week’s End trip to Wichita, Gumfory dropped her wallet, unbeknown to her, on the bus. Later, she noticed it was missing and frantically searched through her room at home, and anywhere else she thought it might be. No luck. Meanwhile, the next morning Smutz, a fourth-grader at Jefferson Elementary, boarded the bus for a journey to Wichita, where she and other members of the school’s drumming circle, under tutelage of Karen Jesseph, were to perform at a Kansas Department of Education event. Along the way, when the bus driver applied its brakes, the wallet slid out from under Kaitlyn’s seat and hit her foot. Without hesitation, she handed the wallet to Jesseph, who found it belonged to Gumfory, who happens to be her cousin and daughter of Kelly Spears, of Diamond Daisy flower shop in downtown Iola. When the group got home, Jesseph carried the wallet to the flower shop, which was met with tears of appreciation from Spears and grandmother Jackie Smith. All realized that if someone with less integrity had found the wallet, Gumfory could have had a rough go. Not only did it contain her driver’s license, but also debit and credit cards and some cash. Kaitlyn, second oldest of eight children of Justin and Sara Smutz, Gas, never had any
White flag ready for GOP on tax deal WASHINGTON — Speaker John Boehner emerged from his weekly huddle with House Republicans on Wednesday morning to take his place behind a mahogany lectern in front of a brown backdrop. The dark tones provided ideal camouflage for the deeply tanned speaker — as though he were trying to vanish into the background. Who could blame him? Right now, he is hoping to lead his fractious GOP to an orderly surrender. The question is no longer whether Republicans will give on taxes; they already have. All that remains to be negotiated is how they will increase taxes, and whether they will do it before or after the government reaches the “fiscal cliff.” “I believe that it’s appropriate to put revenues on the table,” Boehner told reporters. “Now, the revenues we’re putting on the table are going to come from — guess who? — the rich.” Socialist! Redistributionist! Spreader of wealth! One of Boehner’s lieutenants, Pete Roskam of Illinois, stepped to the microphones, essentially pleading for the president to show mercy. “President Obama has an unbelievable opportunity to be a transformational president — that is, to bring the country together,” he said. “Or he can dissolve into zero-sum-game politics, where he wins and other people lose.” Those “other people” would be the House Republicans, because it is Obama who seems to be holding all the cards right now. A poll by the Pew Research Center found that 53 percent of Americans would blame Republicans for sending the nation off the cliff and only 27 percent would blame Obama. And Republicans didn’t
Dana Millbank The Washington Post help their cause by ending their workweek on Wednesday and going home. Earlier in the week, Boehner offered Obama an $800 billion tax increase with the blessing of Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, the Republicans’ vice presidential nominee this year, and other House leaders. The speaker is trying to hold out for making those hikes come from lower deductions rather than higher rates, but the White House is feeling so confident that it dismissed Boehner’s offer out of hand. Obama Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer told Peter Baker of The New York Times that Obama “won’t sign a deal that doesn’t have higher rates for the wealthy. Until they cross that bridge, nothing else is relevant.” Republicans are looking for face-saving ways to retreat, such as allowing a tax increase to pass the House by voting “present” instead of “no.” Jeb Hensarling of Texas, the outgoing chairman of the House GOP conference, acknowledged Wednesday on CNN that “the president is going to get his revenue one way or the other.” As they prepare to accommodate Obama, Republican leaders have begun to crack down on hard-liners in their ranks who routinely defy compromise. On Monday, two dissidents were removed from the House Financial Services Committee and two from
the Budget Committee. Outside their meeting in the Capitol basement Wednesday morning, House Republicans were coming to grips with the inevitability of the tax increase. “We’re not looking at doomsday,” the GOP whip, Kevin McCarthy of California, assured CNN’s Dana Bash. Ryan, who signed off on the hike, left the session with a wave. “I’m not doing press,” he said. “I’m just saying ‘hi.’” Boehner emerged 17 minutes late and five minutes after his aides gave the camera crews a two-minute warning. “We made a good-faith offer,” he began, promising that “our targets and frameworks are things that we can all agree on.” A flustered McCarthy added his perspective. “The president now has to engage,” he said. “I think the sex” — he caught himself — “the next 72 hours are critical.” A few on the leadership team repeated the old platitudes about taxes. “An obsession to raise taxes is not going to solve the problem,” said Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington state sounded the refrain that “Washington does not have a revenue problem.” But the bromides couldn’t conceal the fact that House GOP leaders, with little dissent from the rank and file, had already acquiesced on some form of a tax increase. “House Republicans are prepared to get to yes,” Roskam said. “House Republicans are not prepared to get to foolish, and it is foolish to reject President Obama’s own self-described architecture of $3 in spending cuts for every dollar in new revenue.” Coming from a bunch that liked to say they wouldn’t allow a dollar of new revenue even if it came

She didn’t expect anything for being honest and upright, but did receive a stuffed animal and balloons from Gumfory and, when he heard the story, a coveted challenge coin from Allen County Sheriff Tom Williams. The story also brought accolades — and a few tears — from Kaitlyn’s bus driver, Steffen Centlivre, when she arrived for a
ride home from school after receiving Gumfory’s gift. Balloons aren’t allowed on buses, but Centlivre quickly gave his OK when he learned why Kaitlyn had them in tow. KAITLYN’S story shouldn’t be considered an anomaly. Although some fall off society’s wagon, the lion’s share of today’s kids are just like her, eager and willing to do the right thing anytime the opportunity presents itself.
‘Black boxes’ proposed for cars By JOAN LOWY Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — Many motorists don’t know it, but it’s likely that every time they get behind the wheel, there’s a snitch along for the ride. In the next few days, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is expected to propose long-delayed regulations requiring auto manufacturers to include event data recorders — better known as “black boxes” — in all new cars and light trucks. But the agency is behind the curve. Automakers have been quietly tucking the devices, which automatically record the actions of drivers and the responses of their vehicles in a continuous information loop, into most new cars for years. When a car is involved in a crash or when its airbags deploy, inputs from the vehicle’s sensors during the 5 to 10 seconds before impact are automatically preserved. That’s usually enough to record things like how fast the car was traveling and whether the driver applied the brake, was steering erratically or had a seat belt on. The idea is to gather information that can help investigators determine the cause of accidents and lead to safer vehicles. But privacy advocates say government regulators and automakers are spreading an intrusive technology without first putting in place policies to prevent misuse of the information collected. Data collected by the recorders is increasingly showing up in lawsuits, criminal cases and high-profile accidents. Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray initially said that he wasn’t speeding and that he was wearing his seat belt when he crashed a government-owned car last year. But the Ford Crown Victoria’s data recorder told a different story: It showed the car was traveling more than 100 mph and Murray wasn’t belted in. In 2007, then-New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine was seriously injured in the crash of an SUV

But privacy advocates say government regulators and automakers are spreading an intrusive technology without first putting in place policies to prevent misuse of the information collected. driven by a state trooper. Corzine was a passenger. The SUV’s recorder showed the vehicle was traveling 91 mph on a parkway where the speed limit was 65 mph, and Corzine didn’t have his seat belt on. There’s no opt-out. It’s extremely difficult for car owners to disable the recorders. Although some vehicle models have had recorders since the early 1990s, a federal requirement that automakers disclose their existence in owner’s manuals didn’t go into effect until three months ago. The traffic safety administration is also considering expanding the data requirement to include as many as 30 additional types of data such as whether the vehicle’s electronic stability control was engaged, the driver’s seat position or whether the front-seat passenger was belted in. Despite privacy complaints, the traffic safety administration so far hasn’t put any limits on how the information can be used. About a dozen states have some law regarding data recorders, but the rest do not. “Right now we’re in an environment where there are no rules, there are no limits, there are no consequences and there is no transparency,” said Lillie Coney, associate director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, a privacy advocacy group. “Most people who are operating a motor vehicle have no idea this technology is integrated into their vehicle.”

Fillies come up short in tourney finale By RICHARD LUKEN email@example.com
BURLINGTON – Iola High Fillies head coach Becky Carlson sees flashes of improvement with her young basketball squad. “We just need some consistency,” she said. On Friday, the Fillies battled toe-to-toe against Anderson County in the third and final round of the Burlington Preseason Tournament. The score stood in Anderson County’s favor, 22-19, when the Lady Bulldogs rang up seven straight points down the stretch. Iola’s Lexy Long drained a 3-pointer in the final minute, but the Fillies could get no closer in a 29-22 loss. The defeat drops Iola to 0-4 on the season and 0-3 in the Burlington tournament. Despite the loss, Carlson left the Burlington Middle School gymnasium encouraged. “We were more active on defense than we have been,” Carlson said, “and our 1-3-1 zone worked well.” Carlson also lauded the work of bench players Addie Haar, Reagan Ford and Long. “Reagan stepped up for us and did a good job,” Carlson said. “Lexie gave us a spark and Addie did a good job of getting around inside and drawing fouls.” Both squad struggled on offense in the early going.

They came out with a 21-11 third quarter spurt to seize control. Cameron Brown led the way with 24 point performance, along with Caleb DeNoon with 18. In Friday night’s victory for Yates Center High over Cherryvale, the conclusion came down to the wire, ending in a 73-72 nail-biting finish. The first quarter started close and would set the tone for the entire game. The Chargers led 20-19 after one quarter before Yates Center took the upper hand at halftime, 44-41. SEE YC | B3
Chanute holds off Mustang rally By RICHARD LUKEN firstname.lastname@example.org
BURLINGTON — Stop us if you’ve heard this before. On Friday, the Iola High Mustangs struggled mightily in the early going, the third such occurrence in four games in the young 2012-13 season. Iola was sluggish on offense and defense as Chanute High blasted its way to a 19-4 lead. “I was happy with how we put ourselves in position to come back, but it’s hard to come all the way back from 15 down,” Mustang head coach Bill Peeper said. “We’re just killing ourselves by coming out not ready to play.” Iola got no closer than four points down the stretch in a 50-42 defeat. The loss comes in the fifthplace contest of Burlington’s preseason tournament. Iola went 1-2 in tournament play and stands at 1-3 overall. “I don’t know how it happens,” Peeper said. “I thought we fixed this last time out (in a win over Louisburg.) Tonight was a step backward for us.” Iola held a 2-0 lead before Chanute’s Caleb Dietsch drained a 3-pointer for the Blue Comets to trigger a 10-0 spurt. The Mustangs’ Tyler Powelson stopped the run with an inside basket. Chanute responded with another nine-point flurry in the final 1:41 of the period. Iola’s Tyler McIntosh scored to start the second quarter, followed

Lady Cubs down Crest HUMBOLDT — While both teams’ defenses had their moments Thursday evening, Humboldt High’s defense was particularly stifling from start to finish. “Our defense would stop them on 10 straight possessions, then we’d give up points on 10 straight possessions,” Crest High Lady Lancers coach Ben Vaughn said. The Humboldt girls pushed together several key runs to grab their first win of the season, 55-30. The victory came in the second round of Humboldt’s preseason tournament. Both teams also played Friday, but results were not immediately available by press time. “I was very proud of our defense,” Lady Cub head coach Sherri Nelson said. “We got the players where they needed to be.” Whitney Strack played the piv-
otal role in a second-quarter flurry that turned a 10-8 lead into a 2516 advantage at halftime. Strack provided several steals and drives to the basket that resulted in several free throw attempts. When Strack wasn’t making noise, Sheri Middleton was at times dominating the middle by swatting away field goal attempts inside or altering passes across the lane. Middleton scored four in the quarter. Megan Hudlin drained a pivotal 3-pointer as well. The Lady Cub defense clamped down in the third period as HumSEE LADY CUBS | B2

HUMBOLDT – Athough the basket seemingly had an invisible lid preventing outside jumpers, free throws and occasional layups from dropping, Thursday’s matchup between two of the area’s most highly regarded basketball teams lived up to its billing, and then some. It wasn’t until Crest High’s Brock Ellis’ desperation 3-pointer from near midcourt came tantalizingly close to falling –
the shot had the right distance, but was a tad to the left – that Humboldt High came away with a 43-40 win over the Lancers. The victory came in the second round of Humboldt’s preseason tournament.

IMS squads fall to Pittsburg Iola Middle School’s teams came up short on the scoreboard but showed plenty of hustle and effort in their home contests Thursday against Pittsburg. The eighth-graders were even with Pittsburg “for all but about 45 seconds in the second quarter,” Ponies coach Marty Taylor said. That discrepancy was enough for Pittsburg to take a small lead, maintaining that advantage the rest of the game in a 28-21 victory. Iola led 10-8 after one quarter before Pittsburg crept in front 16-14 at halftime. The Purple Dragons pushed their lead to 23-17 after three quarters. Toni Macha led Iola with eight points and four rebounds, followed by Lexi Heslop with seven points and five rebounds. Sydney Wade had six points and two boards. “I just can’t say enough about how hard the girls play,” Taylor said. “Pittsburg is a very good basketball team.” The Pony seventh-graders were nip and tuck with Pittsburg for three quarters before the Purple

The lead swelled back to double digits at 42-32 before Iola’s final real salvo of the night. Powelson converted a three-point play with 5:05 left in the game. Two Dietsch free throws were countered by another Powelson bucket with 3:25 left. The teams traded missed baskets and turnovers on their next two possessions before Mason Coons hit a 3-pointer for the Mustangs to cut the gap to 44-40. Chanute’s Derek Sharp scored before Iola came up empty on its next two possessions. Two Sharp free throws put the game out of reach. Powelson led Iola with 15 points, 11 rebounds, four steals and three blocks. Ashmore added eight points and two assists, while Coons had six boards. Trent Latta had five steals for the Mustangs. “I don’t think our slow start had anything to do with tired legs,” Peeper said. “I think it had a lot to do with leadership.

CAIRO (AP) — The Egyptian army deployed tanks and gave both supporters and opponents of Mohammed Morsi a deadline to leave the area outside the presidential palace Thursday following fierce street battles that left five people dead and more than 600 injured in the worst outbreak of violence between the two sides since the Islamist leader’s election. The intensity of the overnight violence, with Morsi’s Islamist backers and largely secular protesters lobbing firebombs and rocks at each other, signaled a possible turning point in the 2-week-old crisis over the president’s assumption of near-absolute powers and the hurried adoption of a draft constitution. Opposition activists defiantly called for another protest outside the palace later Thursday, raising the specter of more bloodshed as neither side showed willingness to back down. But the army’s Republican Guard, an elite unit assigned to protect the president and his palaces, gave protesters on both sides until 3 p.m. (1300 GMT, 8 a.m. EDT) to clear the vicinity, according to an official statement. The statement also announced a ban on protests outside any of the nation’s presidential palaces. Morsi was in the palace Thursday conducting business as usual, according to a presidential official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to address the media. Egypt has seen sporadic clashes throughout nearly two years of political turmoil after the ouster of autocratic leader Hosni Mubarak. But Wednesday’s street battles were the worst between Morsi’s supporters and followers and came after an implicit call by the Muslim Brotherhood for its members to go to the palace and evict anti-Morsi protesters who had camped out there. Unlike Mubarak, Morsi was elected in June after a narrow victory in Egypt’s first free presidential elections, but many activists who supported him have jumped to the opposition after he issued decrees on Nov. 22 that put him above oversight and a draft charter was later rushed through by his Islamist allies despite a walkout by Christian and liberal factions. Compounding Morsi’s woes, four of his advisers resigned Wednesday, joining two other members of his 17-member advisory panel who have abandoned him since the crisis began. Six tanks and two armored vehicles belonging to the Republican Guard, an elite unit tasked with protecting the president and his palaces, were stationed Thursday morning at roads leading to the palace in the upscale Cairo district of Heliopolis. The guard’s commander, Maj. Gen. Mohammed Zaki, sought to assure Egyptians that his forces were not taking sides.

Stopping symptoms of GERD does not signal cure Dear Drs. Donohue and Roach: I have been diagnosed with GERD and Barrett’s esophagus. My doctor put me on 20 milligrams of omeprazole once daily, and it seemed to work well. I read about the bone problems with omeprazole and stopped taking it because I also take phenytoin (Dilantin), and I have a balance problem: My fear is that I could fall and break a bone. I started using aloe extract. I take it twice daily, and it works great. I have had no problems with my GERD since I started taking the aloe. I told my doctor about this, and he did not seem too happy with me for stopping the omeprazole. I would appreciate your opinion about this problem. — R.G. Answer: GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, is a condition in which stomach acid goes up into the esophagus, the muscular tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. Acid doesn’t belong in the esophagus, so it can cause sensations of

burning, or can bring about a cough in some people. Many people have no symptoms. A few people, after years of acid going up into the esophagus, will develop Barrett’s esophagus — the lining of the esophagus starts to look like stomach lining. This puts the esophagus at higher risk of developing adenocarcinoma, a type of cancer. Researchers believe, but haven’t proven, that reducing the acid in the esophagus can prevent cancer. Studies have proven that the abnormal lining of the esophagus can start to return to normal with high doses of medicines like omeprazole, so it makes sense that omeprazole can prevent cancer in those cases.
Unfortunately, stopping symptoms doesn’t always mean that the lining is returning to normal. Even though the aloe may be helping your symptoms, there is no guarantee that it is helping to stop the Barrett’s esophagus and protect you against esophageal cancer. I suspect that is why your physician seemed unhappy. You are quite right that both phenytoin and omeprazole can affect the bones and make them more likely to fracture. But I would recommend asking your physician to test your bones for fracture risk before you stop these medicines, since they are both doing very important jobs.
Dear Drs. Donohue and Roach: Can you please address Moyamoya disease? My husband’s cousin was recently diagnosed with it following a stroke and is undergoing surgery. We heard that there may be a genetic component to the disease through the mother. Is this true? What are the cousin’s chances for a full recovery? — K.O’C. Answer: Moyamoya disease, despite its odd-sounding name (Japanese for “puff of smoke”), is a serious disease involving blockages of the major blood vessels in the base of the brain, called the circle of Willis. It is most prevalent in Japan but is rarely found in this country. Only about 10 percent of Moyamoya is familial, and the genetics are not related to gender, even though the condition is a bit more common in women. Surgical treatment for this condition is designed to increase blood flow to the affected part of the brain. In expert hands, the results can be very good.
Battery won’t be drained by radio Dear Tom and Ray: My 16-year-old son drives a 2008 Honda CR-V. He wants to play the car’s radio while the engine is off. He wants to sit in the car with the radio on while he is killing time, or while waiting for me while I am in the store. I have told him it’s not a good idea, since it could kill the battery. He doesn't believe me, since his friends supposedly listen to the radios in their cars without the engines running. He says they do it “all the time” — listening from 10 minutes to half an hour — and have “never” had a problem with killing the battery. What’s your opinion? Can you resolve
this standoff ? — Sarah Tom: Is it his car? If it is, what do you care? If he kills his battery, you can refuse to give him a jumpstart until he writes “I will always listen to my sainted mother” 1,000 times. Ray: Of course, if it's your car he's driving, then I understand why you're concerned. But you really don't need to be. Tom: The radio uses a very small amount of current — maybe a couple of amps. That's not enough to kill a battery that's in good condition. Not even close. So, as long as the battery is sound, he can play the radio for an hour or two at a time

without doing any harm. Ray: If your battery IS weak and near the end of its life, then, sure, he might kill it by playing the radio. But in that case, it would have died and stranded you soon anyway. And now you can blame it on him.

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.

THEY SAID IT DURING THE SEASON
Yes, Howie Mandel came close to losing it when he had Teleprompter problems at the Sprint Cup Awards. It was edgy, but he didnâ€™t go off the edge. He was a flawed choice as emcee, but he tried. He did some homework. The stands at races arenâ€™t generally filled with comedians, at least not professional ones. Had he not been tragically killed in 1998, Phil Hartman would have been the perfect choice. NASCAR is in a tough spot. Its banquet isnâ€™t big enough to draw a Billy Crystal. Mandel was probably the best it could do. Frank Caliendo might have been better, but heâ€™s done the gig before. The championâ€™s speech was one of simple and unrehearsed eloquence. It wasnâ€™t polished, but it was genuine. Few race drivers take public-speaking classes, as the painful remarks of Kasey Kahne attested. Heâ€™s a nice guy but so ill at ease in a formal setting. The entertainment was fine, but the show still seems too much like the Peopleâ€™s Choice Awards, which some in NASCAR might consider a compliment.
As a group, theyâ€™re not notable for their book learning, but NASCAR figures learn to turn a phrase, as collected during another grueling Sprint Cup season:
â€œWhatâ€™s surprised me is just how much I truly enjoy driving these cars.â€? â€” Danica Patrick. â€œI have hit a lot of things, but a jet dryer? I mean, no â€Śâ€? â€” Juan Pablo Montoya, after the Daytona 500. â€œI donâ€™t think that itâ€™s reasonable for any young driver to not make mistakes, but I think that itâ€™s important to learn from them.â€? â€” Brad Keselowski, before embarking on a championship. John Clark/NASCAR This Week
2012 got off to a wild start when driver Juan Pablo Montoya hit the Daytona International Speedway track jet dryer. The crash set off an explosion involving 200 gallons of fuel. Montoya finished 36th after starting 35th in the race.
â€œOne of the goals in my life is to sit up on that stage (as champion) in Las Vegas, and I think heâ€™s the guy who can make it happen.â€? â€” Roger Penske, on Brad Keselowski, May. â€œI could win at a lot of tracks, but I just try to spread them out and give some other drivers a chance.â€? â€” Ryan Newman, in jest, after winning his 16th race on his 11th different track. â€œThere isnâ€™t a car more scrutinized in this garage area than the No. 48. Itâ€™s been that way for the last decade.â€? â€” Jimmie Johnson. â€œAll things must come to an end, and this surface has come to an end â€Śâ€? â€” Clint Bowyer, at Kansas. â€œRichard Petty got quite an ovation when he ran his last race in Atlanta, but nothing like this.â€? â€” MRNâ€™s Barney Hall, after Dale Earnhardt Jr. ended a 143-race winless streak â€œI was never taught to give and take. I was taught to race hard.â€? â€” Newman.
LOOKING TO NEXT SEASON
JEFF GORDON VS. CLINT BOYWER
Both were graceful during the Sprint Cup Awards. Both endured numerous quips at their expense. Relations are still strained, though, and two of the sportâ€™s premier performers enter 2013 in what at best can be described as an uneasy truce. NASCAR This Weekâ€™s Monte Dutton gives his take: â€œThe bitterness is too deep. It canâ€™t be resolved with words. It takes time, and in this case, quite a bit of it. For one thing, they will be constantly watched on the track, particularly when in close proximity.â€?
At the end of his speech, Clint Bowyer said he was â€œclocking outâ€? on the season. Itâ€™s a good thing. The next one will be here before long, not to mention the testing that leads up to it. Did we mention that Danica Patrick is going to be competing fulltime in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series next year? Chevyâ€™s new SS drew positive reviews when unveiled in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, many teams are fretting about the final configurations of the new cars, which still havenâ€™t been finalized. Jimmie Johnson said the cars have been changed enough. He wasnâ€™t specific but said it was time to look at changing the tracks in order to provide better competition. 2013 CUP SCHEDULE Feb. 16 Daytona Shootout Fox Feb. 17 500 qualifying Fox Feb. 21 Daytona Duel Speed Feb. 24 Daytona 500 Fox March 3 Phoenix Fox March 10 Las Vegas Fox March 17 Bristol Fox March 24 Fontana Fox April 7 Martinsville Fox April 13 Texas Fox April 21 Kansas Fox April 27 Richmond Fox May 5 Talladega Fox May 11 Darlington Fox May 18 Charlotte All-Star Speed May 26 Charlotte Fox June 2 Dover Fox June 9 Pocono TNT June 16 Michigan TNT June 23 Sonoma TNT June 29 Kentucky TNT July 6 Daytona TNT July 14 New Hampshire TNT July 28 Indianapolis ESPN Aug. 4 Pocono ESPN Aug. 11 Watkins Glen ESPN Aug. 18 Michigan ESPN Aug. 24 Bristol ABC Sept. 1 Atlanta ESPN Sept. 7 Richmond ABC Sept. 15 Chicagoland ESPN Sept. 22 New Hampshire ESPN Sept. 29 Dover ESPN Oct. 6 Kansas ESPN Oct. 12 Charlotte ABC Oct. 20 Talladega ESPN Oct. 27 Martinsville ESPN Nov. 3 Texas ESPN Nov. 10 Phoenix ESPN Nov. 17 Homestead ESPN

John Clark/NASCAR This Week
Clint Bowyerâ€™s switch from Richard Childress Racing to Waltrip Racing was a huge gamble, but it seemed to pay off as he finished runner-up to Brad Keselowski in this seasonâ€™s Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship. Whatâ€™s in store for next season amid more NASCAR and team changes?
Dear NASCAR This Week, I feel the same as the letter of Joan Wilkerson. I couldnâ€™t have said it better myself. â€œBowyer has wrecked Gordon many times. It was about time Gordon stood up for himself.â€? Glenn Vlietstra Kalamazoo, Mich.
Look out for some changes for 2013 Cup season By Monte Dutton
NASCAR This Week
Itâ€™s possible that the next NASCAR season will be similar to the one just completed, but itâ€™s not as likely as in the past for 2013 to link seamlessly with 2012. Brad Keselowski is the Sprint Cup champion, and his first will probably not be his last. Keselowski is just 28, with a future as bright as the noonday sun. He drove a Dodge Charger to his title. Next year heâ€™ll be in a Ford Fusion, which, at the very least, requires some adaptation, and at the very most, a bit of uncertainty that wasnâ€™t in place a year ago. Keselowskiâ€™s gamble isnâ€™t as great as Clint Bowyerâ€™s a year ago. Bowyer switched teams, moving from Richard Childressâ€™ Chevy into Michael Waltripâ€™s Toyota. Bowyer finished runner-up to Keselowski. Really, though, all the cars are going to be different. NASCAR is implementing a design change, the most noticeable development being that the cars will look less like one another and more like cars that actually sit in showrooms and roll around streets.
Dear NASCAR This Week, Mrs. Joan Wilkerson, in her letter â€Ś of Thursday, Nov. 28, hit the nail on the head with her comments regarding the Gordon/Bowyer incident. I completely agree with her. N. Vlietstra Kalamazoo, Mich.
Teams will shake down their cars and pore over data from tests sanctioned by NASCAR, but in the short run, the balance of power will almost surely shift. Some teams will adapt better than others at the outset. In time, it will even out. Early on, one manufacturer might appear to have a slight advantage. That, too, will pass, but in a sense, the change might make the early part of next season more crucial than last. NASCAR officials have also made changes in the qualifying process, reducing the number of automatic spots in the starting fields. In fairness, it should be added that 2012 was hardly a carbon copy of 2011. The championship changed hands. Keselowski surprised the experts, most of whom expected him to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup but gave him little chance of winning it. A driver who almost won the 2011 championship, Carl Edwards, didnâ€™t even make the Chase. Neither did Kyle Busch, who is almost unanimously considered one of the sportâ€™s great talents. Stay tuned. February is going to be very interesting.
It could be that these two notes are related.

Whoâ€™s hot: The champ canâ€™t relax. Brad Keselowski will be in a Ford come Daytona. ... The runner-up, Clint Bowyer, is set in his MWR Toyota.
Whoâ€™s not: Awards emcee Howie Mandel went into a snit over a Teleprompter and its operator. ... Kasey Kahneâ€™s speech wasnâ€™t exactly reminiscent of Shakespeare, or even Keselowski.
