State slashes Allen adult education funding

By KAYLA BANZET The Iola Register

The opportunity to get a GED diploma in Allen County has been drastically reduced. Trustees at Allen Community College learned Tuesday night funding for the college’s GED program had been cut by 83 percent by the state for next year. The adult ed program is funded by a State of Kansas

grant that assists in preparing interested adults to take the GED examination to earn a high school equivalent diploma. The program was not meeting the state’s enrollment goals. For 2014, Allen had 53 students enrolled, down from 104 students in 2011. The state-mandated enrollment goal is 80. Next year the goal is 104. Jon Marshall, vice president for academic af-

We can’t make people want services. We can’t force people to be educated. — Jon Marshall, vice president for academic affairs

fairs, said he was unsure how the goals were set for the college and met with Susan Fish, state director of adult educa-

tion with the Kansas Board of Regents. Fish had said when she took her position the enrollment in adult edu-

cation across the state was in decline. It was a goal to raise the numbers back to its original glory. Fish also said although the counties Allen serves might be losing census, data shows people without a diploma is rising. “We can’t make people want services,” Marshall told the trustees. “We can’t force people to be educated.” Because the enrollment See ACC | Page A6


Ambulance finances are trending upward By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

Iola’s ambulance service financial trend is looking better, City Administrator Carl Slaugh told Allen County commissioners Tuesday. Latest projections suggest the countywide service will have a deficit of $190,000 by year’s end, Slaugh said. That’s much better than a month ago when it appeared funding would fall short by $400,000. Another bouquet Slaugh handed out was that combining Iola’s and the county’s services would result in a savings of $705,000. With combined service, Slaugh said expenditures should be $1.985 million, with Iola’s fire department a part of the mix. In 2013, Iola and the county spent $2.689 million, when both operated ambulances.

Meanwhile, Allen County included a levy of about 3.7 mills for ambulance service in its 2014 budget, when it was put together last July. That will generate about $350,000, which will remain in reserve in case something unforeseen occurred and the county had to resume ambulance service. With Iola settling into countywide ambulance provision, Commissioner Dick Works said he saw no reason why the county couldn’t reduce, perhaps even remove altogether, the ambulance levy for the 2015 budget and those of years ahead. That would be a property tax savings for all in the county, including Iolans. Slaugh suggested that commissioners take into consideration when figuring their upcoming budget the pendSee COUNTY | Page A6

States claim right to require documents WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas and Arizona argued Tuesday they have a sovereign right to require proof of citizenship for voters in their states, even for federal elections. The two states urged the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in a filing to lift the emergency suspension of a ruling from U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren that orders the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to modify its federal voter registration form to add special instructions for Arizona and Kansas residents about those states’ documentation requirements. Circuit Judges Carlos Lucero and Jerome Holmes granted on Thursday the temporary halt sought by the commission and voting rights groups, a day after Melgren rejected a similar request to suspend his ruling during the appeal. Melgren had ordered the commis-

sion to carry out “without further delay” his March 19 directive. Opponents of proof-ofcitizenship requirements contend that the added documentation burdens result in an overall decrease in registration of eligible citizens, undermining the purpose of the National Voter Registration Act. The states argue the requirement protects the integrity of their elections by ensuring noncitizens aren’t voting. In addition to arguing against a stay of Melgren’s order, both states also opposed in their latest filing the election commission’s request for expedited hearing by the 10th Circuit as soon as this summer on the merits of the case. “The efficient administration of the election in 2014 demands that the district court’s correct decision remain in place and that adSee VOTE | Page A6

Holy Land on the horizon By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

Several Iolans will check off another item on their bucket lists next week. On Tuesday, 18 pilgrims, as the Rev. Trudy KenyonAnderson likes to call them, will journey to Israel for a 10-day visit. Kenyon-Anderson, pastor at Wesley United Methodist Church, and her husband, Russ Anderson, will serve as hosts. The couple were in Israel last year as a spiritual retreat.

When they returned, congregants were enchanted by their stories and requested them to go back — with them in tow. The local entourage of 18 includes eight members from Wesley United. They will be joined by nine Lutherans from Washington state and a couple from Georgia. Other than their hosts, none of the local group has been to Israel. Three who sat for an interview with the Register, along with KenyonAnderson, all said they were

excited at the prospect of seeing first-hand many places they had read about for years in Bible study. Touring the many landmarks in the Holy Land “brings the Scriptures to life and lets you visualize them more,” Kenyon-Anderson said. “It gives you a new perspective, connects you to the Bible in a different way.” Mary Kay Heard thinks it will be “an experience of the heart, something that I will feel and will stay with me the rest of my life.” See ISRAEL | Page A4


School upgrade in focus By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

GAS — Gas council members will meet in special session next Tuesday to discuss how to proceed with upgrade of the old Gas School as a community center. They reviewed recommendations from Shoeb Uddin, an engineer with Sunflower Design, Topeka, Tuesday night, but found estimated cost beyond their means. Shoeb outlined in an email estimated improvements would cost $252,100, and suggested the city seek a Community Development Block Grant to pay half. “We don’t have the mon-

ey to pay half,” if Gas were successful in attracting a CDBG, said Mayor Darrell Catron. Councilman Larry Robertson suggested putting $15,000 in the 2015 budget, which will be put together in the next month or so, and “do one item at a time.” At the top of Uddin’s list was a new roof at a minimum of $56,000. Others were wheelchair lift and bathroom remodeling, $45,000; sidewalk, roof drainage and grading, $40,000; miscellaneous items, $16,000. Completing project costs were $12,900 for construction management and inspection, and $20,000 for grant administration.

“If there is no struggle there is no progress.”

— Frederick Douglass, African-American social reformer 75 Cents

Gas obtained the school for a token payment of $1 after it was abandoned by USD 257 a year ago. Plans have centered on making it a community center, with a small library, and a place for senior citizens to gather. Some talk of moving City Hall there has surfaced. Among things Uddin will be asked next week is whether in-kind services — labor and equipment on the city’s part— might be counted as its share of a grant match. Also council members wondered about the possibility of upgrades being done by the city and volunteers. Catron said he would approach Allen County comSee GAS | Page A4

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The year’s third Kansas Honor Flight is headed to Washington, D.C., to give veterans a chance to visit memorials to their wars and others. The flight was scheduled to leave Wichita today carrying four World War II veterans and 23 Korean War vets, along with their guardians, to the nation’s capital. The trip is organized by Kansas Honor Flight


Inc., whose mission is to transport veterans to Washington to visit the memorials at no cost to them. World War II veterans have priority, with Korea and Vietnam vets following in that order. Among the memorials on the itinerary are the World War II Memorial, Korean Memorial, Vietnam Memorial Wall, Lincoln Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Iola will begin its annual campaign to rid the town of mosquitoes on Tuesday with spraying two evenings a week. Tuesday evening spraying will occur south of Madison Avenue and then north of Madison on Thursday evenings. Riverside

Park will be sprayed both evenings. A truck carrying the sprayer travels at 10 mph, a speed necessary to properly dispense the spray, which is clear and practically odorless. When the truck stops, the sprayer shuts down temporarily.

Red Barn Veterinary Service is proud to sponsor an event inspired by Kansas Extension Service’s Walk Across Kansas and Thrive Allen County’s Move programs, called “Pet Play Everyday�. For 28 days, 4 weeks, pet owners are invited to make a commitment to play, walk, groom or otherwise actively interact with their pets. We will open with a kick-off event Saturday morning, May 17th, with a pet registration, a “Dog Trot Poker Run� to get everyone’s tail wagging, and an opportunity to weigh the pets and receive “Pet Play Everyday� water bottles, tennis balls and Hill’s Metabolic diet totes, filled with dry food, a couple of cans of food, informational materials and coupons. For those playing poker, prizes of pet toys will be awarded for the best hands played. At registration, you will receive a pamphlet that your family can use to log your “Pet Play Everyday�. Upon completion of the program, after 28 days, when you return your log, your pet will be registered for prizes and rewards. Red Barn Vets will try to post facebook and website tips for appropriate activities and expectations for the variety of species, breeds, ages and weights of pets and answer participants questions. Feel free to visit the office for advice relating to the “Pet Play Everyday� program and interim weigh-ins. 12 Ways Pets Improve Your Health 1. Pets may lower your cholesterol. If you own a dog, those daily walks are helping to keep your cholesterol in check. 2.Pets help relieve stress. Simply being in the same room as your pet can have a calming effect. Oxytocin is released which brings feelings of joy. A decrease in a stress hormone called cortisol aids in stress relief. 3. Pets may reduce your blood pressure. Petting your pooch or kitty brings down blood pressure while pleasing your pet. 4. Pets boost your fitness. A study found that people who walked with dogs improved their fitness more than people who walked with other people. Dog owners were found to walk 300 minutes a week compared to people who didn’t own dogs who walked 168 minutes a week. 5. Pets reduce your cardiovascular disease risk. Lower cholesterol, stress and blood pressure combined with increased fitness may add up to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. 6. Pets may prevent allergies in children. A study showed that children who were exposed to pets before they were 6 months old were less likely to develop allergic diseases, hay fever and eczema as they got older. 7. Pets relieve depression. Pets can provide social support for their owners, who tend to have better overall well being than non-owners. 8. Pets ease chronic pain. Having pets around the house can help distract from chronic pain. Petting your animal releases endorphins which are powerful pain relievers. 9. Pets improve relationships. Young adults with a deep bond to their pets felt more connected in their relationships and to their communities than those who did not have animals. 10. Pets monitor health changes. Pets can sense when you are experiencing physical changes such as low blood sugar or changes in your brain that will trigger a seizure. 11. Pets boost your self esteem. Pets are completely non-judgmental, don’t have an agenda, take you at face value and they don’t care what you look like or how you behave. 12. Pets bring your family closer together. A pet is good for the whole family. They help family members work together in caring for a pet. Kids learn how to treat others with kindness and caring and they teach responsibility. It is often a child’s first death experience which can be a teachable moment. Consult the veterinarians at

A slow-motion and irreversible collapse of a massive cluster of glaciers in Antarctica has begun, and could cause sea levels to rise across the planet by another 4 feet within 200 years, scientists concluded in two studies released Monday. Researchers had previously estimated that the cluster in the Amundsen Sea region of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet would last for thousands of years despite global climate change. But the new studies found that the loss is underway now as warming ocean water melts away the base of the ice shelf, and is occurring far more rapidly than scientists expected. The warming water is tied to several environmental phenomena, including a warming of the planet driven by emissions from human activity and depleted ozone that has changed wind patterns in the area, the studies found. “There is no red button to stop this,” said Eric Rignot, a University of California, Irvine, professor of Earth system science and the lead author of one of the studies, conducted with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and scheduled for publication in a journal of the American Geophysical Union. The six glaciers have

passed “the point of no return,” Rignot said, which means that total collapse — the melted retreat of the glaciers — cannot be prevented. “The only question is how fast it’s going to go.” Antarctica, surrounding the South Pole, is the largest mass of ice on the planet, containing an estimated 80 percent of the world’s fresh water. Its scale is difficult to fathom. One environmental foundation said that if you loaded the ice onto cargo ships and started counting the vessels, one per second, it would take 860 years before you were finished counting. THE LOSS of even a portion of that ice would have consequences across the globe. Scientists have surmised its possibility for decades, and have braced for confirmation, which in effect arrived Monday. For the UCI-JPL study, scientists used 40 years’ worth of measurements, much of it data from satellite radar systems that can measure changes on Earth’s surface to within a quarter of an inch. The data was used to measure the precise location of the glaciers’ so-called grounding lines — the point at which glaciers connect to a land mass. It is at this nexus where warmer ocean water encounters the ancient ice and causes it to retreat.

Israel: Trip plans Continued from A1

Heard remembered being in Italy and by happenstance found herself in the presence of Pope Francis. “I felt I was in the presence of a spiritual man, and I expect to have the same feeling in Israel,” she said. “I’m sure we all will be glad we went.” Recalling her experiences in 2013, KenyonAnderson said being there “makes the difference between Heaven and Earth seem much smaller. It’s so holy,” prompted by knowing “so many have prayed there for centuries.” “It was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up,” said Flo Haynes. “Going with my pastor and people in my church is a blessing.” “I’ve been to Athens in Greece,” said Gerry Uphoff, noting the feelings she had standing where

who have traumatic b r a i n injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” Rove ’s re m a rk s Hillary Clinton grossly misstated the length of Clinton’s hospitalization, which was only several days at the end of 2012 after doctors discovered a blood clot behind her right ear that stemmed from a concussion. The then-secretary of state suffered the concussion after fainting at her Washington home while weakened from a stomach virus. The clot was discovered during a follow-up exam for the concussion at New York

Smacking down incendiary allegations that Karl Rove made about Hillary Clinton’s health, a spokesman for former secretary of state said Tuesday that Rove was “lying” and that “the right has politicized” Clinton’s health from the moment she was treated for a blood clot after a fall 17 months ago. Rove, former White House adviser to President George W. Bush, raised questions about Clinton’s health at a conference last week in Los Angeles. “Thirty days in the hospital?” Rove said at the conference, according to the New York Post, which first reported the comments, “And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people

about what does she have to be concerned about. ... I mean, she’s hidden a lot of this.” Noting that reporters raised questions about the health of 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain, Rove told Fox that “this will be an issue in the 2016 race whether she likes it or not.” “Every presidential candidate is asked for all of their health records. ... Look, she’ll be 69 by the time of the 2016 election. She will be 77 if she serves two terms.” Clinton has kept up a brisk schedule of public appearances since leaving the State Department, delivering speeches all over the country while writing her memoirs, which will be published on June 10.

Presbyterian Hospital. The injury led Clinton to delay her testimony to Congress on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on a diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead. Republicans are expected to try to use the attacks in Benghazi as a central issue against Clinton if she runs for president in 2016. Rove attempted to roll back his remarks Tuesday in an interview with Fox News — but continued to raise Clinton’s age as an issue, calling her injury a “serious health episode.” “I didn’t say she had brain damage,” he told Fox, pushing back at the New York Post’s headline. “This was a serious deal. ...

Vote: States argue Continued from A1

ditional uncertainty not be created by the prospect of litigation-driven, last-minute changes in the weeks before the elections,” the state wrote. The EAC argued last week that Melgren’s ruling, unless stayed, would discourage voters from registering for this

burdensome dual election system, like the one in Arizona. Under that system, voters who registered with the federal form can only vote in federal races, while those using the more stringent state registration forms can vote in all elections. Most voters in Arizona and Kansas regis-

year’s federal elections, particularly if they do not have ready access to a copy of their birth certificate or other qualifying documentation, and would work a particular hardship on voter registration drives. “The harm to voter registration this election cycle cannot be remedied even if this Court reverses,” the commission said. It was unclear when the 10th Circuit will decide, but the appeal judges have temporarily halted the lower court’s ruling until further order from the court. Kansas told the appeals court Tuesday that continuation of its stay would force the state to implement a

ter with state forms, but state officials claimed suspending Melgren’s ruling until the case is resolved on appeal would create a “massive loophole” in the state’s proof-of-citizenship documentation rules, allowing noncitizens to register to vote. The federal form simply requires people to certify under penalty of perjury that they are U.S. citizens. The commission argued that suspending Melgren’s decision pending resolution of the appeal will not harm the states because it maintains the status quo under which they have carried out their elections for two decades.

238 dead in coal mine explosion

SOMA, Turkey (AP) — Women wailed uncontrollably, men knelt sobbing and others just stared in disbelief outside a coal mine in western Turkey as rescue workers removed a steady stream of bodies today from an underground explosion and fire that killed at least 238 workers. The fate of an estimated 120 miners remained unclear in one of Turkey’s worst mining disasters. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan postponed a foreign trip and visited the mine in Soma, about 155 miles south of Istanbul. The deaths were caused by carbon monoxide poisoning, officials said. Erdogan said the incident would be investigated to its “smallest detail” and “no negligence will be ignored.” He discussed rescue operations with authorities, walked near the entrance of the mine and also comforted two crying women. Earlier, Erdogan declared three days of national mourning, ordering flags to be lowered to half-staff. Energy Minister Taner Yildiz said 787 people were inside the coal mine in Soma at the time of Tuesday’s explosion and 363 of them had been rescued. Scores were injured, Yildiz told reporters in Soma,

where he was overseeing operations by more than 400 rescuers. The last worker rescued alive emerged from the mine around dawn, a government official said on condition of anonymity because she didn’t have prior authorization to speak publicly to journalists about the issue. As of 3:30 p.m., it had been about 10 hours since anyone had been brought out alive. “Regarding the rescue operation, I can say that our hopes are diminishing,” Yildiz said before Erdogan’s visit. Erdogan said there were an estimated 120 workers still inside the mine. “Our hope is that, God willing, they will be brought out,” he said. “That is what we are waiting for.” Tensions were high as hundreds of relatives and miners stood outside the mine. The crowd shouted at officials, including when Yildiz passed by, and some wailed each time a body was brought up. A heavy police presence was in place around the mine. The explosion tore through the mine as workers were preparing for a shift change, officials said, which likely raised the casualty toll because there were more miners inside than usual.

County: Ambulance on the upside Continued from A1

ing deficit, with money it will hold in reserve. Commissioners seem resolute in staying with what they agreed to in the contract to combine services, a guarantee of $750,000 from run revenue. Works pointed out he thought it was made clear throughout negotiations that while combining the services could result in a savings for taxpayers overall, the city likely would operate at a deficit. The trend toward lower expenditures has come about because of personnel costs. Originally, personnel costs were forecast at $1.9 million for 33 employees, including administrative. To date, 28 are operating Iola’s ambulance/fire department, although the immediate goal is to increase that to 30. Slaugh said recent savings within the budget also had occurred because of a plan devised by Chief Tim Thyer and Ryan Sell, ambulance director, which reduces

the number of personnel called in when ambulances are dispatched. That has produced “additional savings without adversely affecting the service,” he said. Also, the budget for this year has no provision for improvements to ambulance stations in Humboldt or Moran. “They’re adequate,” Slaugh said. He agreed that putting aside for now concerns about what the deficit eventually might be was a good approach, rather than fretting about what might happen. “Let it work,” said Commissioner Tom Williams. “It’s too early to decide on more money. Let’s let it play out.” Works mentioned that Iola Mayor Joel Wicoff “told us that once we had a contract there would not be any more negotiations. That’s why I signed up for five years.” Commissioners did agree after the contract was signed to give Iola use of the county’s ambulance station on North State Street, which Works said was as far as he was willing to go in

altering the contract. Slaugh, in summation, noted ambulance service “isn’t a profitable venture, but it is a necessary service.” COMMISSIONERS

steadfastly maintained that they had no control over whom Sheriff Bryan Murphy, or any other elected official, hired or fired in response to admonitions from Mitch Sigg that one of the county’s deputy sheriffs was unfit to serve. Sigg handed commissioners a memo from the Liberal Police Department outlining concerns it had when the officer worked there. The memo apparently was obtained by Sigg’s attorney, Linus Thuston, Chanute, for an upcoming court case involving a disorderly conduct charge against Sigg that arose from an incident involving the officer. Commissioner Williams said he hired the officer when he was sheriff and at the time “got a glowing endorsement” from the Liberal department. Williams also pointed out to Sigg

that a Kansas Supreme Court ruling had confirmed the autonomy of county sheriffs in personnel decisions. Commissioner Jim Talkington weighed in by noting commissioners had no right to interfere with how a sheriff ran his office. IN OTHER NEWS:

— Commissioners approved two purchases by the Public Works Department, a 2015 pickup truck from Twin Motors, Iola, which had the lowest of three bids at $28,414, and a road spreader for $9,000 from Don Mann, Moran. Bill King, department supervisor, said the spreader was 28 years old, but with no moving parts it was as good as a new one, which would cost about $25,000. — They approved a proclamation making June 7 a Day of Giving in Allen County. The Allen County Community Foundation will have an event on the courthouse square that day, with non-profits on hand to tell their stories and solicit funding.

ACC: Adult ed funding hit hard Continued from A1

goal was not met, state funds will now be reduced to $17,320.80 from $101,191. Although this is not ideal for the Allen program, Marshall said he is looking at the positives. “I feel this program is important to the college,” Marshall said. “I choose to look at it as a way to appropriately size the program.” The department will be reduced by two fulltime positions to one

full-time and one parttime position. Marshall said he has looked into many avenues for the future of the program. He has spoken to other programs in the state and there might be a possibility of collaborating with other programs. “I have no pride in ownership,” Marshall said. “If we conform with another school I’m fine with that. What’s important is that we have services.”

IN OTHER business, Steve Troxel, vice president for finance and operations, said the gym floor will be sanded. It has come to the staff ’s attention there is some water damage to boards. “We need to fix the floors and figure out where the water damage is coming from,” Troxel said. The trustees approved funds for the project exceeding no more than $50,000. John Masterson, ACC president, said grass on the soccer field has had

some trouble growing since it was established in the early 2000s. Trustees agreed to have the field worked on. An articulation agreement with Rasmussen College, Inc., Minneapolis, and a reverse transfer agreement with Kansas State University was approved. An articulation agreement recognizes that the two educational institutions agree to work together to provide educational opportunities for students.

Brownbackonomics backfires The results of Brownbackonomics — take from the poor and give to the rich — are beginning to show: — Tax collections last month are $40 million short of the April 2013 figures. — The state takeover of the federal Medicaid program, now called KanCare, has resulted in a $100 million loss and the threat of insurance companies pulling out of the program. (The Legislature blocked health care access for 100,000 Kansans and now Brownback would have the state take over and manage Medicare.) — The state continues to suffer out-migration of taxpayers, some 10,200 between 2010 and 2013. — What little funding increase Brownback and the Tea Party-ers promised Kansas schools has fallen $12 million short of projections. — And as a result of all or some of that, the state’s bond rating has been downgraded, meaning Kansas taxpayers may be paying higher interest on funds the state borrows. How many presidential campaigns have been built on a record like that? Gov. Brownback insists, of course, that the state’s woes are not his doing, but rather

The fault for Kansas’ predicament lies squarely with Mr. Brownback and the toadies and bootlickers with which he has stacked the Statehouse and whose numbers are so great that four of them authored the Kansas budget, which then passed with no House debate. are the result of “failed economic policies of the Obama administration.” Would that be the same Obama administration that has overseen an unemployment rate that plunged from 6.7 to 6.3 percent in March alone, a 40 percent decline in deficit spending, record high stock markets and federal government employment at a 47year low? Would that be the same failed Obama health care plan that signed more than 8 million Americans by the deadline, including a rush of last minute filers, most of them young and healthy? No, the fault for Kansas’ predicament lies squarely with Mr. Brownback and the toadies and bootlickers with which he has stacked the statehouse and whose numbers are so great that four of them authored the Kansas budget, which then passed with no House debate.

The RINO hunters populating the legislature, along with Gov. Brownback, are so firmly in charge that they are utterly responsible for everything Gov. Brownback’s vision does in and to Kansas. Democrats remain a minority. The RINOs are all but absent — traditional GOP elephants replaced by Brownback sycophants. The Statehouse is full of ideologues. That has changed. But most Kansans are not ideologues and that hasn’t changed. So hopefully, now that the political fever is subsiding in the chill of the new economic reality in Kansas, Republican voters will realize we aren’t in Kansas anymore — and haven’t been for four years now — and will make some changes at the polls come this August and November. Provided, of course, they can secure a ballot. — The Clay Center Dispatch

Time to redo the revenue estimate

Letter to the editor

The state’s official revenue estimate no longer appears reliable and should be redone. At the very least, the estimators ought to reconsider the individual income tax portion of the estimate so that Kansans can have an accurate picture of state finances. On April 17 the Kansas revenue estimating group released the semiannual Consensus Revenue Estimate, a forecast of state general fund receipts for fiscal year 2014 (July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2014) and FY 2015 (July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2015). Less than two week later, April tax collections were already $93 million “off the estimate,” and legislators were being told that collections of individual income taxes could be off several hundred million dollars more by the end of FY 2015. A revenue estimate that far off so soon is a highly unusual circumstance. How could that happen? The estimators depend on the Department of Revenue to provide detailed information and analysis of tax collection patterns. The estimating meeting was held two days after income tax returns were due, so the department had access to the majority of tax returns and surely had been monitoring things in

Dear editor,

Duane Goossen Kansas Health Institute February and March. The department attributed the April loss to President Obama’s policies and suggested that high-income taxpayers had chosen to book some of their capital gains income in the 2012 tax year instead of 2013. However, that shift in capital gains income occurred across the country and has been well-documented over the last year. Why wasn’t that calculated into the April 17 estimate? OTHER explanations for the low April revenue collection could apply. Did the elimination of state tax on pass-through income cost more than expected? Were there more refunds this year because taxpayers were overwithheld? April was a quarterly withholding month — did taxpayers reduce those estimated payments in anticipation of lower 2014 taxable

income? The suggestion that revenue collections might be below expectations again in May and June is disconcerting. Using the official April 17 estimate of revenue, the spending plan that the Legislature just passed brings the ending balance down to $391 million at the end of FY 2015. However, if the revenue estimate is really $300 million to $350 million too high, as some suggest, the bank balance will be almost entirely gone and the state will face a budget situation for FY 2016 in which expenses greatly exceed revenue. A public release of more detailed data, and a fresh look at the income tax projection by the estimators, would help answer questions and provide confidence in the process. A realistic understanding of the state’s true financial condition is at stake. Duane Goossen, KHI’s vice president for fiscal and health policy, served as state budget director for 12 years in the administrations of three governors — Republican Bill Graves and Democrats Kathleen Sebelius and Mark Parkinson. He also served in the Kansas House of Representatives from 1983 to 1997.

I’m writing to encourage area residents to attend the Moran Alumni Banquet on May 24. We local people need to turn out for this better than we do. Many alumni come from all over the United States. The officers work hard to keep this going as well. I used to look at the “older” alumni who had been out for 50-60 years and think “Wow, that is a long time.” Now it has been 60 years since I graduated and I think “Wow, already!” I have had five children who graduated between 1973 and 1979. Also three grand-

children all from Moran. I have to smile when I think of Vera Harris who attended the banquet when she was 97, and made the announcement she had been out of high school for 80 years and was the only one there from her class. Two years ago, the oldest female graduate was Prudi Lower Fronk of Iola. She was my fourth grade teacher when I was 9 in 1945. Please make your reservations now so the caterers know how many to cook for by calling Ann Houk, 620237-4368. See you there! Norma (Arnold) Sager Stahl, Iola, Kan.

Author ‘surprised’ with Pulitzer Prize win NEW YORK (MCT) — When Dan Fagin dies, he knows the first paragraph of his obituary will mention what happened April 14: He won a Pulitzer Prize for his clear, authoritative and suspenseful nonfiction book, “Toms River: A Story of Science and Salvation”. A Newsday reporter for 18 years, Fagin became a journalism professor at New York University in 2005. He was working at home in Sea Cliff, N.Y., unaware of the impending announcement, when his wife, Alison Frankel, a reporter for Reuters, shouted the news from another room. Amazon cleared out its modest stock of “Toms River” within the hour. The Pulitzer citation calls it “a book that deftly combines investigative reporting and historical research to probe a New Jersey seashore town’s cluster of childhood cancers linked to water and air pollution.” “No one was more surprised than me,” Fagin

said. “Any writer under any circumstances is going to be surprised to win the Pulitzer Prize. There are so many amazing books published each year.” Fagin, 51, is a middle child and a numbers man, with a better-than-average grasp of probability, something he burnished during his years as an environmental reporter for Newsday. He sees his win as the culmination of the listening and learning he did on Long Island, particularly on the topic of breast cancer clusters in suburban New York. He spoke about the book by telephone. Q. What do you hope, now that your book has this new seal of approval? A. I am heartened that more people will be introduced to this story. “Toms River” is on one level a cautionary tale; on another level, it is the story of the great things that happen when people in a community take on the full responsibility of citizenship, when they immerse themselves

in matters of community importance. When a child has cancer, it would have been the easier thing to turn inward. Instead, they turned private grief into a community crusade. Q. You end this book by traveling to China. Why? A. Readers should not come away from this book thinking, “Poor Toms River — that’s them, that’s not us.” This is a universal problem created by the human impulses that gave rise to it, and our Faustian relationship with industrial chemicals. Those of us here in the United States are reaping the benefits of the chemical age without fully bearing the costs. Just like we outsourced once to Toms River, we now outsource to China. Q. This book took seven years, researched and written amid your teaching duties. What is your process? A. Laborious, a process of writing and rewriting. I’m of the school that says you cannot rewrite

2 FO O T


too many times, that you rewrite until you can’t bear it and then rewrite it one more time. Putting in a lot of time is the optimal way to see that the book is clear, interesting, engaging — but also to be right. Q. Which was the hardest chapter to get right? A. They all possessed their own challenges. I struggled with the last chapter, and the China work, and the need to tie up the string in Toms River. I struggled with how prescriptive I wanted to be. We could all use a little more humility in nonfiction writing — more reporting and less hectoring.

Shields reaches milestone in win — B4

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Evaluation ordered for ‘Blade Runner’ PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius was ordered by a judge today to undergo psychiatric tests, meaning that the double-amputee athlete’s murder trial will be interrupted, possibly for two months. The decision by Judge Thokozile Masipa followed a request for a psychiatric evaluation by the chief prosecutor, Gerrie Nel. The prosecutor had said he had no option but to ask for it after an expert witness for the defense testified that Pistorius had an anxiety disorder since childhood that may have influenced his judgment when he fatally shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. Masipa said the court would reconvene on Tuesday to decide on details regarding Pistorius’ period of observation. The world-famous runner stood with his hands clasped in front of him in court as the judge explained her decision. He could be acquitted if it’s found that he was not criminally responsible for Steenkamp’s shooting because of a mental illness. A mental disorder See TRIAL | Page B3

Wind no problem as Iola wins at Anderson Co. By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

GARNETT — With their team title already a virtual certainty, Iola High’s Mustang golf team entered the Anderson County Invitational hoping to wrap up the Pioneer League crown in style. Mission accomplished. Iola took home the top score in a competitive field, while

junior Kaden Macha edged the field for the individual title. Macha shot a 1-over-par 71 to slip past Anderson County’s Spencer Walter, who finished one stroke behind. Iola’s Shane Walden was two shots back with a 74. Macha’s blistering backnine of 34 was the best of the day by three strokes, paving the way to the win. He trailed Walter and Walden by two

strokes entering the turn. “Kaden just didn’t make any mistakes,” IHS head coach Doug Kerr said. “The scary thing is, Kaden won and he didn’t putt very well. He missed five or six putts he thought he should have made.” The Mustangs’ team score of 308 was six strokes clear of Paola in second. Ottawa finished third at 320.

Paola and Ottawa are likely Iola’s most prominent challengers at next week’s Class 4A Regional Tournament at the Emporia Municipal Golf Course. “This gives us confidence, but the scores are so close, we know we’ll have to play well,” Kerr said. Golfers contended with unSee MUSTANGS | Page B3

Early deficit sinks Fillies By SPENCER MICHELSON The Iola Register

LACYGNE — Iola High’s Fillies couldn’t overcome Osawatomie’s early lead in a 11-6 loss for third place of the Pioneer League Tournament Tuesday. “This is a team we beat twice earlier,” IHS head coach

Vince Coons said. “We start coming around, then we have issues letting runners move around. Then we have to get additional outs that we can’t give up.” The Trojans scored two runs in both the first and second inning to take a 4-0 lead. See FILLIES | Page B3

LA CYGNE — Trent Latta had another brilliant pitching performance to lead the Iola High Mustangs to a 10-0 third place finish against Osawatomie in the Pioneer League Tournament Tuesday. “I thought we came out and played with a little bit more fire and aggressiveness,” coach Mark Percy said. “Of course, Trent pitched a good game and that helps. So, if we can play like this all the time, then we’re going to be a pretty competitive team.” After pitching a no-hitter Against Central Heights last week, Latta gave up only two hits with 10 strikeouts through six innings. Latta also got things started for the Mustang offense, going 3-for-3 with two base hits, a triple and two runs scored. Kohl Endicott also had a good day at the plate going 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI single. After a scoreless inning in a half, Iola took the lead in the bottom of the second. With runners on first and third, Endicott hit a single up the middle that scored the first run of the game. Latta then hit an RBI single to take the 2-0 advantage. Endicott stole home, after Latta made a move for second. The catcher threw the ball to the short stop, who saw Endicott break for home. Endicott easily beat the throw. In the third Latta gave up his first hit of the game, ending nine-straight hitless innings. The Mustangs rallied for two more runs in the third. After reaching second

Iola High’s Caleb Alexander slides into third base Tuesday in the Mustangs’ 10-0 win over Osawatomie at the Pioneer League Tournament. REGISTER/SPENCER MICHELSON base on an error by the Trojans first baseman, Derrick Weir stole third and then came home on a wild pitch. Next to wild pitches, the Trojans also had a problem fielding the ball, allowing batters to reach on three key errors. Coleson Wiggin walked, and eventually came around to score on an RBI double by Ethan Sigg. In the fourth, Latta had a single, stole second and made it to third on a wild pitch. Overall, the Trojans had four wild pitches that would help Iola runners advance. Latta came around to score on an RBI single from Weir. Leading 6-0 in the fifth, Iola scored two more runs during a two out rally. Endicott reached on a single, then stole second base. He made it to third after a fielders choice. Latta then hit a ball over the right fielder’s head resulting in an RBI triple. Latta then

came into score on another wild pitch. Latta pitched the sixth with a 1-2-3 inning. All the Mustangs needed to clinch the game was two runs for the scoring limit to take effect. Weir had a lead off walk, then Ethan Scheibmeir hit a double, putting both runners in scoring position. Drew Faulhaber hit a line-drive single scoring both runners, winning the game. “Of course I wanted to see Trent throw well, but I wanted to see the team play with a little bit more fire and get after it,” Percy said. “So, this is a good game to end on before regionals.” The Mustangs head to Burlington Tuesday to take on Santa Fe Trail to open the Class 4A Regional Tournament. The winner advances to Tuesday’s championship game and a potential state playoff berth.

Singer wins primary RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — “American Idol” singer Clay Aiken won what had been a hotly contested Democratic primary for a North Carolina cong ressional seat, according to Clay Aiken a final, unofficial vote count that was posted Tuesday, a day after the accidental death of his closest rival. Aiken will face Republican incumbent Renee Ellmers in November in the GOP-leaning district where Mitt Romney won nearly six in 10 votes in 2012. Ellmers won by 56 percent that year and is looking for a third term. The countyby-county tally of the 2nd Congressional District race posted by the state Tuesday confirmed Aiken got more than 40 percent of the vote needed to win the threecandidate race. On Monday, secondplace finisher Keith Crisco, 71, died after falling at his home. Hours earlier, campaign manager Christine Botta said they had counted the absentee votes in two key counties, forcing Crisco to acknowledge defeat. He had decided to concede his loss to Aiken on Tuesday, she said. Aiken and Crisco each picked up a handful of votes after the last of the absentee ballots returned by a Monday deadline were counted.

Mustangs: Pioneer League champions Continued from B1

seasonably cold and windy conditions Tuesday at the hilly Garnett Country Club. “That’s the story of our season,” Kerr said. Despite the hills and wind, Iola’s golfers have a distinct advantage over many of their foes. “With the weightlifting our guys do in the offseason, we’re stronger, and we play longer,” Kerr said. “So when

we’re hitting wedges at the green, the other kids have to pull out irons.” Drake Dieker finished 11th Tuesday with a 78. Adam Peterson finished 17th at 85. Matt Jacobs shot an 87 to finish 21st. Weston Hines carded a 95 to place 31st. As an aside, Matt Percy of Central Heights — son of IHS baseball coach Mark Percy — finished fourth with a 76. The Pioneer League

team title was determined by cumulative scores at three golf tournaments: Tuesday’s in Garnett, the Osawatomie Invitational April 26 and Iola’s Buck Quincy Invitational April 28. Iola entered Tuesday with an 85-stroke lead over Anderson County. The final tally had Iola clear of the Pioneer League field by 99 shots. Macha’s combined scores give him the in-

dividual Pioneer League championship. Hines was third, Dieker fourth, Peterson seventh and Jacobs ninth. Walden — who won the Buck Quincy Invitational and finished third at Garnett — missed the Osawatomie meet because of a schedule conflict. He received all-league honorable mention.

Fillies: Early deficit costly in 11-6 loss to Trojans Continued from B1

In the third, Iola got on the board. Taylor Heslop reached on an infield single to the pitcher. Ashlie Shields kept things going with a single. Halie Cleaver then attempted a sacrifice bunt to move the runners over. She did her job and then some, as a wild throw to first allowed both runners to score and put her on third. Hannah Endicott then

had an RBI single. The Fillies weren’t able to keep the score close the rest of the game. In the fourth another Trojan runner came around to score. The fifth inning resulted in three more runs. The Fillies mustered up their final run when Heslop made it to third, and scored on a wild pitch. The Trojans scored three more runs between the sixth and seventh to take an 11-4 lead.

Iola tried to start a seventh-inning rally. Ashlie Shields hit a triple. Cleaver reached on an error by the third baseman. Then, a wild pitch allowed Shields to score and Cleaver to move to second. After Endicott drew a walk, a wild pitch moved her and Cleaver both into scoring position. With one out, Shelby Reno hit into a fielders choice to first base, which allowed Cleaver

to score. Iola did have some great defensive plays in the game, particularly coming from the glove and arm of Reno at third. She turned two double plays. One came in the fourth inning, as she fielded a ball down the third base line, tagged the base and rifled the ball to first for the second out. She started another double play, by again fielding a ball down the third base

line, but this time throwing the ball to Shields at second for the first out, who then threw the runner out at first. “She is good about touching that bag, turning around and making that throw (to first) especially for a left-handed third baseman,” Coons said. Iola will play next week at the Class 4A Regional Tournament in Garnett. Seedings have not yet been announced.

Trial: Judge orders mental evaluation for Pistorius Continued from B1

could also be used by his defense for a lighter sentence if he is convicted of killing Steenkamp. Legal analysts say the prosecution is in a strong position in the trial. Pistorius will likely now be evaluated by a panel of psychiatrists for a period of 30 days at a government facility, although Masipa said it would be preferable that he be an outpatient and return home each day after tests. The Olympian

is free on bail after being charged with premeditated murder for Steenkamp’s shooting death last year. In a statement read on behalf of his family, Pistorius’ uncle, Arnold Pistorius, said the ruling reaffirmed their confidence in the South African justice system. “As a family, we are comforted by the thoroughness and detail of this judgment and Judge Masipa’s commitment, using every avenue, to ensure a fair trial,” Arnold Pistorius said.

In sending Pistorius, 27, for evaluation by experts, Masipa said the court was “ill-equipped” to properly assess the diagnosis by psychiatrist Dr. Merryll Vorster. The judge said it was important to assess his state of mind because of questions raised by the prosecution that Pistorius might argue he was not criminally responsible for the shooting because of his anxiety disorder. “The accused may not have raised the issue that he was not criminally responsible at the

But he said he had no option but to make the application on the basis of Vorster’s diagnosis. In asking for the evaluation, Nel also may be preempting any appeal by Pistorius’ defense, citing a psychiatric disorder, should he be convicted. The chief prosecutor had previously referred to a period of 30 days for a psychiatric evaluation, the typical period for observation under South African law. Any panel of experts that assesses Pistorius would take additional time to compile a report and submit it to the court. Legal analysts say the psychiatrists’ report could take another month, raising the possibility of a two-month delay in the trial, which started March 3 and is in its eighth week of proceedings.

time of the incident in so many words, but evidence led on his behalf clearly raised the issue and cannot be ignored,” the judge said. Pistorius says he shot Steenkamp by mistake in the pre-dawn hours of Feb. 14, 2013, thinking there was an intruder in his home. His defense has regularly pointed to his fear of violent crime as central to his case of a mistaken killing. Vorster, the psychiatrist testifying in Pistorius’ defense, said he had generalized anxiety disorder and was “hypervigilant” and constantly feared being attacked. The prosecution says Pistorius killed Steenkamp intentionally after an argument and prosecutor Nel said he didn’t believe that an anxiety disorder played any role.

Kansas City Royals starter James Shields throws during Tuesday’s baseball game against the Colorado Rockies Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. JOHN SLEEZER/KANSAS CITY STAR/MCT

Shields hits milestone in win over Colorado By ANDY MCCULLOUGH The Kansas City Star

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (MCT) — The 87-year-old scout approached James Shields and extended a piece of paper. Art Stewart, a member of the Royals’ Hall of Fame and a beloved talent evaluator, sought an autograph on his pitching chart of Shields’ dynamic performance in a 5-1 victory over the Rockies. “This,” Stewart told Shields, “is going in the archives.” Shields gripped a pen and signed his name. It was a memorable evening for both men. To Stewart, it was a testament to the efficiency and effectiveness of the team’s best pitcher. To Shields, the night allowed him to enjoy a milestone, the 1,500th strikeout of his nineyear career. The moment occurred in the sixth inning, as Shields was in the process of striking out the side. He had just pumped a 94-mph fastball past Colorado star Troy Tulowitzki. Catcher Salvador Perez signaled for Shields to return the baseball, and Kauffman Stadium began to rise. Shields merely looked confused, face contorted, arms outstretched. High above center field, the scoreboard announced his achievement. At last Perez instructed him to turn around. Shields tipped his head back and laughed. He stepped off the mound and doffed his cap. “That was a pretty special moment,” Shields said. “Once I finally realized it.” Then he went back to mowing down baseball’s best offense. Shields (53, 2.54 ERA) spun seven innings of one-run baseball. He struck out eight. He also halted a streak that displayed the ferocity of his opponent: The Rockies had ripped an extra-base hit in each of their previous 42 games this season. They managed just five singles against Shields. Lorenzo Cain and Perez homered to power the offense, while Alcides Escobar drove in two runs of his own. The Royals, 19-19, have now boomed four homers in

their last two games, as they attempt to climb out of the major-league basement in that category. “It’s a big park,” Cain said. “But we’ve got to find a way to get over that fence, somehow.” Through the season’s first six weeks, the lineup persists as a model of inconsistency. The victory Tuesday pushed the Royals’ record to 18-2 when they score at least four runs. “We’ve got to start winning games 2-1, and 3-1, and 3-0,” GM Dayton Moore said. “The defense is going to be a major part of that when we start winning games where we don’t score four or more runs.” Moore picked an interesting matchup to make that declaration. The best offense in baseball strolled into Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday afternoon. On Sunday morning in Seattle, Yost peered at some scouting notes on the recent performance of the Rockies. “I wonder what our advance report looks like,” he said. “When I look at Colorado’s, it says ‘Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, cold, cold, hot, hot.’ What do you think ours looks like? ‘Cold, cold, lukewarm, cold?’ “ He still sounded impressed two days later. The Rockies lead the majors in runs, home runs and various other categories. Yet the Royals were up for the challenge. After Alcides Escobar roped an RBI single in the second, Tulowitzki came around and tied the game in the third. The Royals provided an immediate answer. Cain jumped on a 91-mph fastball from left-hander Franklin Morales for a two-run homer. It was his first home run since July 4, 2013. The next inning, Perez crushed a curveball for a solo homer. The ovation from the fans touched Shields. This is only his second year in the organization. It could be his last. But he soaked in the moment. “It’s kind of crazy to think about,” Shields said. “Fifteen hundred strikeouts is quite a bit of strikeouts. “Hopefully, I can get many more.”

Wizards blowout Pacers INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Wizards were tired of getting shoved around in the Eastern Conference semifinals. So on Tuesday night, Marcin Gortat and his teammates pushed back hard. Gortat delivered the best playoff game of his career, 31 points and 16 rebounds, and John Wall scored a playoff-best 27 points as Washington routed the Indiana Pacers 102-79 to cut the Eastern Conference semifinals deficit to 3-2. “We don’t have anything to lose now,” Gortat said. “We play desperate. At the end of the day, we might lose. We have to play every minute of every game like it’s the last one of the season.” The Wizards made a stunning turnaround after losing three straight, two on their home court in incredibly demoralizing fashion. Washington scored a franchise-low 63 points in Game 3 and then blew a 19-point, sec-

ond-half lead in Game 4. Washington refused to let it happen again this time, earning a trip home for Game 6 on Thursday. The difference was obvious. Wall broke free, Gortat dominated the middle and the motivated Wizards were simply overwhelming inside with a 62-23 rebounding edge. Gortat produced more points and rebounds in 36 minutes than he had in the previous two games combined (six points and 13 rebounds). He was 13 of 15 from the field, 5 of 7 from the freethrow line, tied his career-best point total and finished with playoff career bests for points and rebounds. “I was a decoy in Game 3 and Game 4,” the 30-year-old Polish native said. “(Tuesday) was the time for me to perform. At some point in the second half, it was just fun to be in the game.” Wall seemed to enjoy himself, too. The much more aggressive point guard went 11 of 20 from the field and 3 of 6 on 3s, finishing with five rebounds, five assists and five turnovers as he sliced through the Pacers’ defense. “They didn’t stop me from being aggressive on both ends,” Wall said. “But the biggest

thing was just the way we played in the third quarter. They outscored us by like 40 in the other four games, so the third quarter was big for us tonight.” The 31-14 disparity during those 12 minutes completely changed the game, putting talk about the presumed conference finals rematch between Indiana and two-time defending NBA champ Miami temporarily on hold. One possible explanation for what happened to the Pacers was fatigue. Four of Indiana’s five starters played at least 39 minutes in Game 4. Coach Frank Vogel was concerned enough that he gave the Pacers a day off Monday. David West led Indiana with 17 points and six rebounds, but Paul George struggled after playing 46 minutes in Game 4. He was 5 of 15 from the field with 15 points, one rebound, two assists and four turnovers. But the problems went much deeper that weariness. West was only the starter to grab more than two rebounds, Washington held Indiana to 39 percent shooting and they continually beat the Pacers to loose balls. This was not what Indiana expected.

Oklahoma City rallies to stun Clippers, 105-104 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Russell Westbrook finished off Oklahoma City’s stunning comeback. Clippers coach Doc Rivers believes he should never have had the chance. Westbrook scored 38 points and made three free throws with 6.4 seconds remaining, and the Thunder overcame a seven-point deficit in the final 50 seconds to beat Los Angeles 105-104 on Tuesday night and go up 3-2 in the Western Conference semifinals. “I think when you get a win like this it brings everybody closer,” Westbrook said. “It lets you know you can’t mess around.

every moment, every play and go out and win the game.” The play that led to Westbrook’s free throws is in dispute. Kevin Durant made a 3-pointer, then Los Angeles’ Jamal Crawford missed in close before Durant made a layup with 17 seconds left. Westbrook stole the ball, and in a scramble, the Thunder got possession with 11.3 seconds to play, setting up Westbrook’s play. The Clippers believed the ball went off Oklahoma City’s Reggie Jackson, but the officials awarded the ball to the Thunder. After review, the play stood. “Everybody knows it was our ball,” Rivers said. “The bottom line is they thought it was a foul and they made up for it. Let’s take away the replay. We were robbed. It was our ball, whether it was a foul or not.” NBA crew chief Tony Brothers explained the call after the game. “When the ball goes out of bounds, the ball was awarded to Oklahoma City,” he said. “We go to review the play. We saw two replays. The two replays we saw were from the overhead camera showing down, and

the one from under the basket showing the same angle but from a different view. And from those two replays, it was inconclusive as to who the ball went out of bounds off of. When it’s inconclusive, we have to go with the call that was on the floor.” The Thunder were more focused on what they did after the call. They can clinch the series Thursday in Los Angeles. “I’ve never seen a game like this with us,” Durant said. “It just shows that you can never keep us down. We’re going to fight until the end no matter what happens. We fought through it all and persevered through it all.” After the Thunder got possession, Westbrook was fouled by Chris Paul while shooting a 3-pointer with the Thunder trailing by two. Westbrook, who had missed a 3-pointer that would have won Game 4 in the closing seconds, welcomed the chance for redemption. “I’m still upset about that shot that I missed in L.A. for the game, so tonight, I just tried to take my time, take a deep breath and knock ‘em

down,” he said. After the free throws, Paul drove to the hoop, but Jackson stole the ball from him, and time expired. “Probably the toughest thing I’ve been through, basketball-wise,” Paul said. “Everything that happened there at the end is on me. It was just bad basketball.” Durant scored 10 of

his 27 points in the final 3:23 after shooting 3 for 17 through three quarters. “Great players can have a bad shooting night, have a great three minutes and be the superstars that they are,” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said. “He hung in there and there were times where he thought nothing would go right. They stuck together and

fought through a lot of tough situations.” Blake Griffin had 24 points and 17 rebounds, Crawford scored 19 points and Paul had 17 points and 14 assists for the Clippers. It was the latest in a string of spectacular games for Westbrook. He is averaging 29.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists in the series.

On-again, off-again truck confusing Dear Tom and Ray: We have a 1999 GMC Sierra that has something that “runs” on occasion when it is sitting in the garage. We have not started the truck in nearly two months, and my wife heard it run just yesterday. What is causing this, and how do I stop it? Does this truck have a random battery discharger, or is it just lonely because we have not run it lately? We have had it since new, and it is in nearly new condition due to the fact that the price of gas is so high. Most of its life has been spent in the garage — except when some family member moves, or during deer season. It sounds like something is running — like a pump, maybe? Can you tell me what’s running and if there’s anything

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi we should do about it? Thank you. — Grover TOM: First, stop hanging around your parked truck so much, Grover. People are going to think you’re some kind of weirdo. RAY: This truck, like all vehicles these days, has an evaporative emissions control system to keep gasoline vapors from escaping into the atmosphere. I think what you’re hearing is the system’s pump. TOM: To contain the vapors and prevent air pollution, your fuel system is kept under constant pressure, so the vapors are pushed into a

charcoal canister, where they’re trapped and held. Then, when the engine starts, they’re released into the cylinders to be combusted. It’s a good system. RAY: That fuel system pressure is the reason you sometimes hear a little “whoosh” of air escaping when you unscrew your gas cap. TOM: The system has a self-test mode. It’s possible that all you’re hearing is the pump pressurizing the system to test it. It may have just been a coincidence that you’ve been near the truck every time that happened. RAY: But I’m guessing that the pump is coming on more often than it should. That’s probably because your system isn’t holding pressure. TOM: You could have

a slow pressure leak somewhere. It could be from your gas cap, a bad valve, a rusted fuel-filler neck or a dozen other places. But something’s allowing the pressure inside the fuel system to drop, and that’s kicking on the pump. RAY: Or, the pressure sensor is faulty, and is turning on the pump when it doesn’t need to be on. TOM: Either way, if we’re correct, the check Eengine light will come on soon — if it’s not on already, Grover. That’ll be your cue to do, what? Check the engine! RAY: Yeah. Have a mechanic scan the truck and see what trouble codes the computer has stored. That will give him some clues as to where to start looking. Good luck.

Temperature trouble could be serious Dear Dr. Roach: I am a 66-year-old woman who usually is too hot. When I tell my doctors, they just sort of laugh it off. It is making my life miserable because if I keep the heat or air conditioning where it is comfortable for me, it is too cold for others. I hate summer and stay inside in the air conditioning. I keep the temperature in my house at 64 degrees in the summer and winter. I know other members of my family do not tolerate being out in the sun when it’s hot, but they aren’t plagued with being too hot otherwise. The sensation of being too warm comes and goes. I am about 40 pounds overweight, and have been for most of my life. The sensitivity has intensified as I’ve aged. I had a hysterectomy in my 30s, and I know some of my hormones were off. — J.R. Answer: Heat intolerance is common and has several possible causes. The short list includes excess thyroid hormones, loss of estrogen and being overweight. The long list includes, among many others, some serious conditions, such as polycythemia vera (a blood disorder of having too many red blood cells), inflammation of blood vessels, multiple sclerosis and tumors that secrete sub-


Dr. Keith Roach To Your Good Health stances that can affect blood vessels, such as carcinoid or pheochromocytoma. These are uncommon to rare diseases and usually have other symptoms, and

many would likely have progressed over time. The part of your story that bothers me is that this has been bothering you for years and your doctors haven’t taken it seriously. Even if it isn’t a life-threatening condition, it’s been bothering you, and they should have at least tried to help. It’s time to have a


frank discussion with your current or a new doctor and explain that you are concerned about this, that it’s affecting your life and comfort, and that you want to be taken seriously. I’m not saying your doctor needs to evaluate you for everything on the long list, but he or she does need to listen, think and explain.

Calif. bill would ease licensing rules SACRAMENTO, Calif. (MCT) — Denisse Rojas earned a biology degree from the University of California, Berkeley and has set her sights on medical school. But one big obstacle stands in her way. To practice medicine in California, doctors must obtain a license from the state, and applicants are required to provide a Social Security number as proof of identity. Rojas, 25, does not have such a number. She is in the United States illegally, having been smuggled into the country from Mexico by her parents when she was 6 months old. But a group of legislators wants to help her — to do for doctors, dentists, nurses, barbers, security guards and many others what they did last year for attorneys: grant those in the country illegally permission to practice their occupations. The San Francisco resident said she was able to receive financial aid from the state under California’s Dream Act for her last semester of college, so it follows that the state should allow her to use her degree. “We believe that by removing the barrier that we face in obtaining professional licensing, we will be able to reach our full potential,” Rojas told lawmakers at a recent legislative hearing. California leads the nation in efforts to integrate immigrants living here illegally into mainstream society, providing them with driver’s licenses, college scholarships and protection from deportation for minor crimes. The new legislation could go much further in affecting the lives of those in the shadows, supporters say, because it targets work and would afford them upward mobility. The state’s workforce includes 1.85 million people in the country illegally, according to an estimate by the Public Policy Institute of California. The proposal, predictably, has divided Republican lawmakers in California and sparked an outcry of opposition from national conservative groups that want tougher enforcement of existing laws against illegal immigration. “It’s insane,” said William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee. “By granting licenses to illegal immigrants you both aid and abet illegal immigration, which is a violation of federal law, and you are sending a message to the rest of planet Earth that says, ‘Come on!’ “ A bill by Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, would ease the licensing process for psychologists and pharmacists, in addition to other health care professionals, and for about two dozen other occupa-

tions including real estate agents and security guards. The measure passed the state Senate last Thursday. SB 1159 would allow about 40 state boards to accept a federal taxpayer identification number as proof of identification in lieu of a Social Security number. Lara, whose parents were at one time in the country illegally, said his proposal is simply an extension of other measures enacted in recent years that provide such immigrants with driver’s licenses, lower college tuition and access to public financial aid and private funds held by the state universities. His measure would ensure that “more Californians have an effective means of economic mobility and self-sufficiency,” Lara said. A similar argument was made last year, when a divided Legislature approved a bill, later signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, that allowed any immigrant to practice law if certified by the State Bar. Fifteen Republican Assembly members either voted against the bill or abstained. Introduced in an election year when Latino voters are expected to play a significant role at the polls, the bill is a thorny issue for the GOP, which traditionally has called for stricter enforcement of immigration laws. Lara’s bill passed with support from seven Republicans. Five GOP members abstained. A spokesman for the Republican caucus said there was concern about the cost of such a change. Tax authorities would “not always be able to correctly identify licensees to ensure proper collection of taxes associated with the licensee’s practice of profession,” said spokesman Peter DeMarco. Outside of the Legislature, conservative activists are keeping the pressure on Republicans to oppose any easing of existing laws. “California is doing everything in its power to blur any distinction between those who are legally present and those who are not,” said Ira Mehlman, spokes-

Giving makes a d ifference





California State Sen. Ricardo Lara is the son of immigrants with the struggles his parents faced influencing how he legislates. He is working on legislation that would help immigrants who came as babies, brought by their parents illegally, and raised in the U.S. Katie Falkenberg/Los Angeles Times/MCT man for the Federation of American Immigration Reform, a Washington-based group that champions enforcement of current laws. His group is a nonprofit prevented from weighing in on political campaigns. But Mehlman said the group

sends its 250,000 members alerts on bills of concern and plans one on Lara’s measure.
