Farm-to-Fork event yields fruitful ideas

Nonprofits to state local needs and goals A raft of nonprofits and charitable groups will come together for next Saturday’s Day of Giving on the Iola square. The event will give local folks opportunity to learn about the various groups in Iola and surrounding communities that help make our corner of the world better. Activities will unfold on the south lawn of the ourthouse square from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The nonprofits will outline goals, answer questions and be available to accept donations. Umbrella for the event is the Allen County Community Foundation, of which many are associated. The foundation provides a ready opportunity for nonprofits and charitable groups to have their funds safely man-

tion, Wichita. “We’re here to help in any way we can,” said Susan Michael, director of the community foundation. Having donations filtered See GIVING | Page A6

Some say an idea is like being struck by lightning, or a light bulb switching on above someone’s head. But what if an idea was like a farm? It would take many hands to work the rich soil, plant the seed of the idea, nurture it and watch it grow. It would take a community to bear the fruit of their idea, and in return it would feed them all. More than two dozen people attended the southeast Kansas Farm-to-Fork Summit. The summit was the result of many organizations working together, including Kansas Rural Center (KRC) and GROW Allen County. Their goals were to understand the farm and food challenges of southeast Kansas and understand the policies needed to help more farmers grow fruit

and vegetables for local citizens. “The truth is, our current food system is failing Kansans,” said Cole Cottin, program coordinator of KRC. A shortage of diversity in what farmers grow and a shift of agricultural economics to global markets has left local markets neglected, she said. Rural grocery stores are closing across the state, making it more difficult for people to shop for fresh produce. These zones where people have to travel far to find fresh and healthful food are called food deserts. “The food desert issue is not just an urban issue. We have lots of rural food deserts across Kansas,” said Eileen Horn, Douglas County sustainability coordinator. See SUMMIT | Page A3

Race develops in District 9 By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

Cole Herder, left, is congratulated by Councilman Jerry Stephens after being selected Humboldt’s new administrator Thursday evening. REGISTER/BOB JOHNSON

Late this week a race developed for the Republican nomination for the 9th District seat in the Kansas House. Chad VanHouden, Chanute, filed Thursday morning. Kent Thompson, incumbent by appointment last fall, filed Friday. The filing deadline is noon Monday. VanHouden, 31, has worked for MRH Insurance, Chanute, since 2009. This is his first foray into elective politics. “When I was 13, I had a four-wheeler accident,”

VanHouden recalled. “When I was recovering the community showered me with love and prayers. I’ve always wanted to give something back and I thought this VanHouden would be a good way.” He is the son of Charles VanHouden, Chanute surgeon. Thompson, 49, won appointment to replace Ed Bideau, a Chanute attorney who was elected to the House in 2012 and then died last September.

He previously served three four-year terms as an Allen County commissioner, completing his last term in January 2009. Thompson has a real estate business in Iola, has farming and ranching interests and with wife Susan owns an Iola liquor store. No Democrat has filed in the race, and if none does the Aug. 5 GOP primary election most likely will decide who will serve the 9th District the next two years. An independent candidate could slip in just ahead of the primary, but would have to do so by petition. Paperwork must be filed with the Secretary of State’s office in Topeka.

Cole Herder is new Shinseki Humboldt administrator resigns

By BOB JOHNSON The Iola Register

HUMBOLDT — Cole Herder was appointed city administrator Thursday evening. Herder replaces Larry Tucker, who resigned to accept an administrative position in Butler, Mo. Herder, 52, was one of six applicants, vetted by a committee of council members and Mayor Nobby Davis. “We reduced that to two, interviewed each applicant and decided on Cole,” said Sunny Shreeve, a committee member. She made the motion to hire Herder on a two-year contract, which drew a 6-0 vote. Council members Wayne Smith and JoAnn Evans were absent. Herder will be paid $55,000 a year. “We’re on the road to better days,” Davis said after the appointment.

“I’m excited and eager to get started,” Herder chimed in. “I’ll do all I can to do you right.” Herder has no previous public administration experience, but he has been involved in several community betterment groups. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, he has lived in Humboldt since 1966, except for three years while he was earning a degree in electrical engineering at Wichita State University. For the past four years Herder has worked for Microtronics, near Gas, in engineering and before that he was with Everbright in Chanute for 19 years in quality assurance, sales “and anything else needed.” “I know I have a lot to learn, but I’m ready to jump in and work with the rest of the team,” Herder said. “More than anything else, I want to do what’s best for Humboldt.

Quote of the day Vol. 116, No. 151

WASHINGTON (AP) — Beset by growing evidence of patient delays and coverups, embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki resigned from President Barack Obama’s Cabinet Friday, taking the blame for what he decried as a “lack of integrity” in the sprawling health care system for the nation’s military veterans. Obama, under mounting pressure to act from fellow Democrats who are worried about political fallout in the fall elections, praised the retired four-star general and said he accepted his resignation with “considerable regret.” But the president, too, focused on increasingly troubling allegations of treatment delays and preventable deaths at

Summit: Farmers join

Continued from A1

Kansas is far behind on fruit and vegetable production and consumption. Less than 4 percent of the $760 million Kansans spend annually on fruit and vegetables are locally grown, and the average Kansan eats less than two servings of fruit or vegetables per day, instead of the recommended five or more. However, there are signs of positive change. There has been a resurgence of home gardening and in the last 30 years, the number of farmers markets in Kansas has quadrupled. “In southeast Kansas there is a strong representation of farmers,” said Julie Mettenburg, executive director of KRC. “That’s encouraging and I think that bodes well for this region.” Presenters at the summit showed local farmers and advocates some of the projects done in other areas. In Lawrence, for example, they have a program called Common Ground that transforms unused city-owned lots into community gardens and orchards. The gardens have produced an estimated 40,000 pounds of food. One of the problems

for distractions,” Obama said. “We need to fix the problem.” One of Shinseki’s last acts as secretary was to hand the president an internal accounting that underscored just how big the problems have become. It showed that in some cases, VA schedulers have been pressured to fake information for reports to make waiting times for medical appointments look more favorable. The president appointed Sloan Gibson, the No. 2 at the Veterans Affairs Department, as temporary secretary.

“Allen County has all the pieces of the puzzle,” said Mike Hoey, who traveled from Independence, Mo., to attend the summit. “It’s an incredible group of people that came together.” Others agreed that Allen County was off to a good start, it just needs to pool its resources and people together to work toward a common goal. Anthony Randles, physical activity and nutrition program manager for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, said his favorite part of the summit was the round table discussions because there were so many people with different perspectives that had a chance to be heard. “There’s a lot I learned,” he said. “I think I have a little bit better understanding of what is needed in southeast Kansas.” The Farm-to-Fork Summit in Iola was the second of four planned for this year. The first was held in Greensburg. The next two will be held in Colby and Concordia. For more information visit or

identified by Horn and the ongoing projects in Douglas County is a lack of transport, processing and packaging for locally grown produce. The reason a lot of grocery stores do not carry local produce is not because of health codes or laws, but because they can’t get enough of it in bulk to justify giving it shelf space. Many of the fruit and vegetable farmers in Douglas County were farming on less than five acres of property, so one farmer alone can not produce enough bulk goods for sale. To get around this problem, a food hub is needed to combine all of the produce grown by farmers in a region, process it and ship it out all at once. Allen County differs from Douglas County in many ways, so not all of the lessons learned by KRC and other groups in Douglas County can be transferred directly here. Allen County has a smaller population base, for example, but a lot of the projects and programs that Douglas County had to build from scratch are already available here, like Thrive Allen County and GROW Allen County.

State OKs, again, new coal plant By JOHN HANNA The Associated Press

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas’ top environmental regulator gave the go-ahead Friday for the construction of a $2.8 billion coal-fired power plant, only days before the federal government was expected to announce new rules for utilities designed to curb greenhouse gas emissions. Robert Moser, secretary of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, approved changes in a 2010 pollution-control permit for Sunflower Electric Power Corp., for a proposed 895-megawatt power plant outside Holcomb, in southwest Kansas. The changes impose stricter controls on nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and other pollutants and were mandated by a state Supreme Court ruling last year. E nv i ro n m e n t a l i s t s have long fought Sunflower’s plans to build a coal-fired plant next to an existing coal-fired plant, and the Sierra Club filed a lawsuit challenging the 2010 permit. The Supreme Court agreed that the state didn’t use strict enough standards in some areas but refused to void the entire permit. Kansas hasn’t regulated emissions of carbon dioxide, the heattrapping greenhouse gas linked to climate change, and the amended permit wouldn’t limit them from Sunflower’s new plant. Several representatives of national environmental groups said

I think they’re just hoping that if they close their eyes and cover their ears, all this (global warming) will go away. — Amanda Goodin, attorney for Earthjustice

Friday that Moser and his department should have tackled greenhouse gas emissions because allowing Sunflower to build the plant will make it far more difficult to reduce them in Kansas. “I think they’re just hoping that if they close their eyes and cover their ears, all this will just go away,” said Amanda Goodin, an attorney for Earthjustice, which represented the Sierra Club in the lawsuit over the 2010 permit. Moser said his department had anticipated that Sunflower’s project would meet the tougher standards required by the Supreme Court but spent months reviewing the proposed amendment to make sure. Among other things, the court is requiring Sunflower to meet hourly limits on nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide, instead of standards that average emissions every three hours. “KDHE has done its due diligence to ensure this plant will deliver clean power to Kansans within current emissions limits,” Republican Gov. Sam Brownback said in a statement. Brownback and many legislators back Sunflower’s project because they believe it will create jobs and boost the economy in southwest

Man returns money FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — A Salvation Army worker in California is being rewarded for his decision to return a bag containing $125,000 that fell from an armored truck. Joe Cornell tells The Fresno Bee that he found the cash Tuesday after a Brinks truck pulled away from a red light in Fresno and left the sack behind. The 52-year-old Cornell is in a Salvation

Army substance-abuse rehabilitation program. His duties for the organization include working on donated trailers. Cornell says he started crying and shaking after finding the money. He says he decided to report it to police after thinking of his coming grandchild. The company will give Cornell a $5,000 reward and make a separate $5,000 donation to the Salvation Army.

Kansas. The Sierra Club and other environmentalists have accused Brownback’s administration of rushing its consideration of the permit changes. Sunflower, a nonprofit based in Hays, supplies wholesale power for about 400,000 homes in southwest Kansas through six electric cooperatives. The new plant would generate enough electricity to supply 537,000 homes, according to one state estimate, but Sunflower would reserve 78 percent of that for Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association Inc., a wholesaler supplying 44 cooperatives in its home state of Colorado and Nebraska, New Mexico and Wyoming. Sunflower has sought to add coal-fired generating capacity since 2001, but only a deal between the company and then-Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson in 2009 cleared the way for a state air-quality permit. As part of the deal, the GOP-controlled Legislature approved renewable energy standards for utilities that it had resisted. KDHE officials acknowledged that Sunflower’s amended permit doesn’t anticipate the rules on greenhouse gas emissions expected from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency next week. Administration officials have said the rules will give states reduction goals and allow

flexibility for how states choose to meet them. However, a new Kansas law taking effect in July allows Moser and future KDHE secretaries to set separate rules for carbon dioxide emissions for coal and natural gas-fired power plants that include “flexible” standards for older facilities to avoid “unreasonable costs” or requiring utilities to switch fuel sources. The legislation passed both houses with large, bipartisan majorities, and Brownback had a ceremonial signing ceremony at the Holcomb plant site last month. Brownback said in an interview this week, “Our effort now is to say, ‘We want to do this at our level.’”

Iola Middle School to see new technology in 2014-15 By KAYLA BANZET The Iola Register

Iola Middle School students will start seeing new gizmos and gadgets in August. At a special board meeting on Thursday, Brett Linn, technology director, and Sean Linn, assistant technology director, explained to board members how new technology will be integrated into the middle

school. A technology committee, made up of teachers, made visits to other districts in the state to see how they use technology. After learning from other districts, Brett proposed the board do a 1:1 initiative with Chromebooks and a cart of 10 iPads for elective classes. There will be four carts in the building the first year. Teachers and staff

will have training once a month on an early release day to stay up-todate on how to properly use the devices. The school was already scheduled for an update. By the 2015-16 school year the school will be fully 1:1 implemented. The board approved a bid for 96 Acer C720 Chromebooks for $22,944 from Zones and 33 Thinkpad Twist Ultrabooks for $22,535.70,

also from Zones. The board adopted a capital outlay resolution that will allow more spending flexibility in the district with items like technology, maintenance and other big ticket items. This flexibility wasn’t available to the district before until the new finance bill was passed by the legislature in April. The mill rate has not be changed.

In other news: — The board signed the OPAA food service contract. — The board accepted the resignation of Courtney Orth, McKinley Elementary secretary, and Stephanie Bycroft, Jefferson Elementary secretary. It also approved the retirement of Marlene Scoville, Lincoln Elementary, tech lab paraprofessional.

— The board approved the hiring of Callie German, Jefferson Elementary teacher; Emily Hampton, Iola High School language arts teacher; Kelci Maier, Jefferson Elementary secretary; Julie Strickler, Jefferson Elementary para. — Contracts for Jump Start, high school summer school and middle school summer school were approved.

Giving: Foundation helps non-profit organizations Continued from A1 through the foundation also makes them tax deductible for the donor, since not all causes have acquired 501 (c) (3) status, necessary for donors to claim what is given as a tax deduction. “The MOMs (Mothers of Miracles) is a good example,” Michael said. “We held its money until it was spent on the playground equipment, which made donations tax deductible.” Having the foundation involved also increases fiscal responsibility and precludes funds lying about in one place or another. Each group must have specific purposes for contributions they receive, but can change as needs dictate. Again using the MOMs as example, she said if money remained in its account after the playground equipment in Riverside was in place, the group could

designate the funds to go toward hospital assistance for a special needs child. Only requirement would be for the decision to pass muster with Alan Weber, foundation board member and its attorney. THE


is the holding body for both designated donations and money put into endowments. Designated funds are wholly available for a group’s purpose. An endowment means funds are held and only proceeds from their investment are available for expenditure. Of the almost $1 million the community foundation has as its responsibility, nearly $300,000 is endowed through eight separate funds. The classification makes each fund eligible for matching monies from the Kansas Health Foundation. Two of these funds, Allen County Commu-

nity Operations Endowment Fund and Allen County Public Health Endowment Fund, draw 50 percent matches. The others draw 25 percent. That’s where things get a little complicated, Michael allowed. Matching money is triggered when its total reaches $50,000 in a year. “If we had $100,000 given to endowment at the 50 percent level, we’d have to have donations of $100,000,” Michael said, while if reliance fell to a 25 percent match, total fundraising would have to be $200,000. A mix of the two works if total match reaches $50,000. The Kansas Health Foundation agreed to provide matching funds over a five-year period through a Grow II Grant, with this being the third year. Endowment funds are held by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, where the preponderance of funds

leads to greater investment income. The Kansas City foundation’s management charge is 1 percent. “We’ve reached the match the first two years,” Michael said, with the two totaling about $110,000. While the foundation is the fund repository for nonprofit and charitable groups, it also raises funds that may be dispersed to any nonprofit project. Michael said close to $1 million was held within the foundation, in donations and pledges. THE


was in the works for several years and came about on June 6, 2012. Its genesis was the Allen County Hospital Foundation, formed many years ago to support Hospice, Home Health and Lifeline, as well as

to acquire equipment for the hospital. “We’re here to greater serve community needs,” said Don Copley, a board president. A misconception, Michael added, is that some people seem to think of the community foundation as an adjunct of and fund-raising arm for Allen County Regional Hospital. That is a part of its mission, through Uniting for Excellence Endowment and Equipment funds, but “we’re much more,” Michael said, pointing out 28 groups are expected to participate in the Day of Giving and that they cover a wide range of purposes and interests. RANGE OF groups involved in the Day of Giving is broad and varied. In addition to several

meaning to improve local healthcare, others support such things as the Bowlus Fine Arts Center, Circles (out of poverty), The Growing Place, Humboldt Affordable Housing, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Power Up, Hope Unlimited, Pregnancy Resource Center and Veterans Day Committee. In addition to activities on the Iola square June 7, former Iolan Mark Toland will stage a benefit mind reading and magic show that evening at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center, starting at 7 o’clock. Tickets, $10 each, will be available at Day of Giving, and also may be purchased ahead of time at the foundation office, southwest corner of State and Madison streets, several area banks and at the Bowlus that night.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Kansas statesman’s cause celebré was universal healthcare Earlier this week Kansas lost one of its elder statesmen. Dr. Bill Roy, Topeka, educated in law and medicine, wrote a weekly column for Kansas newspapers after he retired from practicing medicine and serving two terms as a U.S. Congressman. His area of expertise, naturally, was the American healthcare system. Dr. Roy fervently believed in a universal system where every U.S. citizen would receive healthcare as a birthright, much like our senior citizens enjoy through the government’s Medicare plan. Under Dr. Roy’s plan, states and the federal government would levy taxes to pay for a universal system. Deductibles and copays could be established, “within reason.” To rein in the cost of healthcare, only services proven medically effective would be provided by the government. That is, no subsidies for fly-by-night nostrums advertised on late-night TV. Dr. Roy also believed the country could save money if private insurance companies were taken out of the equation. Instead of private companies deciding which drug formularies to provide or which hospitals to award business, the government would be the single-payer, eliminating the middleman between patient and care. Medicare is administered for about 3 cents on the dollar, compared to 20-30 cents by private insurance companies who pay dividends and billion-dollar salaries for executives.

Susan Lynn Register editor Lest we forget, those on the other side of the healthcare equation are doing quite nicely. In the recent listing of the 100 highest-paid CEOs of the United States, Richard Bracken, chief executive officer of Healthcare Corporation of America, owner of the most hospitals in the U.S., receives an annual package of $38.6 million. Three CEOs of pharmaceutical companies were paid between $10 and $20 million a year. In 2006, William McGuire, CEO of UnitedHealth Group, was given a $1.767 billion severance package. One way or another, we are paying for those exorbitant costs through our health insurance premiums. With universal healthcare there also would be no need for Medicaid for the poor and disabled, wiping away the current problem for Kansas, especially, which has refused to expand its guidelines to include those with incomes up to 133 of the federal poverty line. Instead, citizens would receive health care from cradle to grave, as offered in most other modern countries in the world. Dr. Roy beat this drum to his dying day. So it feels only right to give it one more thump in his honor.

Letter to the editor Dear editor,

French economist Tomas Piketty has written a book, “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” that has caused quite a stir on Wall Street. Thousands of articles have been written about it. It’s about capitalism inequality and wealth. Piketty’s book is a runaway bestseller, a leading topic of conversation among intelligent people everywhere. Economic commentators have been discussing little else for weeks. Piketty wants to tax the rich at a much higher rate and redistribute it to the poor. This is one of the reasons President Obama got elected. Redistribution resonated with the poor. What they didn’t realize was it’s not going to happen. We shouldn’t care if the rich get richer as long as the poor and middle class can get richer also. There is where the problem lies. Firms on Wall Street are having record profits for the last five years, but are not hiring or giving raises to their employees, while their CEOs are cashing million-dollar salaries. My real concern is the mid-

Incumbents darn near bulletproof By CHAPMAN RACKAWAY

Public approval rating of Congress could hardly get lower, hovering around 10 percent while disapproval numbers top 70 percent. Voters have been in a “throw the bums out” mood for years, yet incumbent reelection rates stay above 90 percent. Primary challenges in other states have been unsuccessful in 2014, and Kansas will probably follow suit. The filing deadline comes Monday, so prospective candidates looking to run must make their decisions now. Looking at the candidates who have already filed, the 2014 elections look to be closer than other recent cycles but with no greater likelihood of turnover. In the 1st Congressional District, Tim Huelskamp has his first competition since he won the 2010 Republican primary. Former legislator Kent Roth has withdrawn from the primary, leaving Alan LaPolice as his sole Republican challenger. Huelskamp has made a national name for himself, but his removal from the Agriculture Committee gives LaPolice an easy campaign message. To be competitive, LaPolice will need to fundraise aggressively for the second quarter, having reported less than $20,000 to the FEC for the first quarter of 2014. Roth’s withdrawal was a huge favor to LaPolice, because he will need all of the GOP antiHuelskamp vote to overcome the incumbent’s significant indistrict support. Jim Sherow and Bryan Whitney have en-

tered the race as Democrats, but the heavy GOP registration advantage suggests that the only way Huelskamp loses is in a primary. Although Democratic registration numbers suggest the best odds for a Democratic challenger, Margie Wakefield’s novice status and limited resources do not suggest success. Jenkins was able to convince state senator Steve Fitzgerald to stay out of the primary, helping her focus on the general election. Like Huelskamp, Jenkins has a significant money advantage over her challenger. The gubernatorial campaign of Paul Davis will soak up most of Kansas Democratic money, making much tougher fundraising for other Democratic hopefuls. Wakefield has raised just $300,000, dwarfed by Jenkins’ $1.3 million on hand. Without money no message or strategy can result in a victory. The strongest Democratic challenge may be in the district most recently represented by a Democrat — the Third District of suburban Kansas City, and even she is eight points behind her Republican opponent. Incumbent Kevin Yoder has been the subject of embarrassing news in the last term, and now he has a substantive challenger in former state legislator and lieutenant governor nominee Kelly Kultala. Reggie Marselus has also filed, but Kultala’s statewide campaign experience and fundraising capacity makes her the most likely nominee to face Yoder in November.

Yoder, like Jenkins, has no primary opponent. In the Fourth District, Mike Pompeo will functionally secure his re-election if former Congressman Todd Tiahrt decides not to run after very publicly considering a challenge. A Tiahrt-Pompeo primary would be the contest of the summer, as Tiahrt would bring money and attention to a race that would otherwise go unnoticed. However, as self-identified conservative candidates have fared poorly in 2014 primaries in other states, Tiahrt’s entry would be as risky as it would be divisive. State Republicans still hold fresh memories of his bruising Senate primary against Jerry Moran in 2010 and would like all GOP candidates unified to gird themselves for the general election. Pompeo (or Tiahrt) has a general election opponent in former nonprofit leader Perry Schuckman. Schuckman unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for the state senate two years ago. Voters often say they will “throw the bums out” and defeat incumbent legislators with whom they are dissatisfied. But such wholesale change never happens in Congress, either because of the incumbent’s popularity or a lack of challenger quality. Kansas U.S. House primaries in 2014 have some potential for change, but stability and across-the-board re-election is the likeliest result.  Rackaway is a professor of political science at Fort Hays State University.

dle class. They are the ones that support our local schools, car dealers, machinery dealers, banks, restaurants, all the local business, cities and county government. America’s middle class is shrinking, more Americans view themselves as slipping out of the middle class according to a recent report by the Pew Research Center. The trend began in 1970, Pew claims, but it has accelerated since the Great Recession. In the past five years, the percentage of Americans who consider themselves middle class has fallen sharply, dropping to 44 percent in the latest survey from 53 percent in 2008. Forty percent now identify as either middle or lower class compared with just 25 percent in February 2008. One of the last legacies of the Great Recession is the hollowing out of the middle class. Another report bears this out. In 1970, about 65 percent of Americans lived in middle class neighborhoods, compared with 42 percent today, according to a report by Cornell University. The Census Bureau defines middle class as those families making be-

tween $40,000 and %80,000 a year. Incomes vary by state. Since the Great Recession began in 2007, median income has steadily declined the last five consecutive years, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Median household income in 2012 was $51,017 a year for the U.S. For Kansas it is $51,273; Iola, $32,234; Chanute, $37,878; Coffeyville, $31,164; Pittsburg, $31,164; Garnett, $39,182; Paola, $50,672, and Overland Park, $72,074 to $106,672. You can see why our youth leave southeast Kansas. U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts called last week on a teleconference. The third caller was a young girl from Wellsville. She asked him why Congress had cut the funding for school lunch programs and hold him they had kids there starving to death because of it. He didn’t know where Wellsville was even though he says he lives in Kansas and has been our Senator for the last 24 years. He said they were out of time and ended the conference after the third call. He calls every six years asking for our support and money. David Comstock, Colony, Kan.

History composed of more than ‘big’ events Everyone has a story. The Register wants to tell them. With a change in staff and scheduling, I’ve reduced my daily commitment — no more rising at 5 a.m. — and will concentrate on sniffing out feature stories for all to enjoy. There may be times we don’t get to one immediately, and it’s even possible that a topic may not find favor, but the lion’s share of what local folks have done and are doing is eligible to find its way into the Register. Stories don’t have to be spectacular or unusual, though we’re also interested in those. If something about everyday life fascinates you, it will fascinate others. A lifetime of fishing, gardening tips, a consuming hobby, an exciting experience and conversations about a trip just completed are of interest beyond family circles. Have a son, daughter or other relative who has done something special? Tell us about it. We want to share stories about things local folks have done. We’re also eager for recommendations for photos to grace Register pages. The recent incident of an

armadillo trying to burrow under an Iola home is example. Anything visible that you think is interesting will find a wider audience. Our mission is to record the daily history of Iola and Allen County, just as we’ve done since 1867. History is enhanced by going beyond just things to do with government, schools and other things within officialdom. The little stories, as well as some not so little, are what fill out any telling of history. It’s easy to become involved. Just call 365-2111 or send an email to bobjohnsonre I’ll be in the office a few hours each day. To be the best and most complete newspaper the Register can be requires a team effort, not just by those who of us paid to fill its pages each day but also by all of you, our dear readers who have ideas and stories we’d love to share.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas collected $217 million less in taxes than it expected in May, news that’s likely to intensify a political debate over income tax cuts championed by Republican Gov. Sam Brownback, though his administration said Friday that the shortfall is a temporary problem tied to federal tax issues. The Department of Revenue released preliminary figures showing the state collected about $389 million in taxes during May, when it expected to collect about $606 million. Tax

collections also failed to meet official projections in April, and the total two-month shortfall is nearly $310 million. The official fiscal forecast, used in budgeting, projected $5.2 billion in taxes from last July through May, but the state took in only $4.9 billion, a difference of 5.9 percent. Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said both months’ shortfalls are tied to past disputes in Washington over federal tax and spending policy. He said that because taxpayers feared an increase in federal taxes on capital gains


in 2013, they claimed their gains for 2012 and lessened their potential taxable incomes in 2013. “The big chunk should be over,” Jordan said during an interview. “The big lug is done.” The shortfall in April — less than half the size of May’s gap — raised questions about whether the state can sustain the spending lawmakers have approved into the future. But even then, some prominent Republicans said they expected state revenues to bounce back. Democrats have questioned the Brownback

administration’s explanation for the shortfalls and suggested that personal income tax cuts he championed in 2012 and 2013 are at least partly to blame. The state will cut its top income tax rate by 40 percent by 2018, but it also has exempted the owners of about 191,000 businesses from paying any personal income taxes on their firms’ earnings. The Department of Revenue’s figures Friday showed that tax collections for the current fiscal year are running 12 percent behind collections for the previous fiscal year.

‘Awesome’ season comes up one win short After losing heartbreaker, Humboldt takes third By SPENCER MICHELSON The Iola Register

TOPEKA — After a heartbreaking loss to Silver Lake in the semifinal game of the Class 3A State Softball Tournament, the Lady Cubs regrouped and came in third place defeating Lyons/Chase High School in the second game Friday afternoon. “We didn’t get our bats going earlier,” coach Brad Piley said. “The championship game was probably over there (against Silver Lake).” The first game of the day ended in devastation. Picking things up in the sixth inning, Silver Lake had a leadoff double. They followed with a sacrifice bunt, pushing the runner to third. A squeeze bunt resulted in the runner from third scoring, giving Silver Lake the 1-0 lead. Humboldt answered back in the bottom of the frame. Hannah Hulett hit a single to start things off. Breanna Kline laid down a sacrifice bunt, moving Hulett to second. Brook TurnSee LADY CUBS | Page B4

Humboldt High’s Delaney Umholtz reacts after being called out at first base on a close play during Friday’s Class 3A State Softball Tournament. The Lady Cubs dropped a 3-1 extra-inning heartbreaker to Silver Lake before rallying to defeat Lyons, 2-1, in the thirdplace game. REGISTER/SPENCER MICHELSON

SCC’s golden boys shine at state track meet By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

Above, Southern Coffey County High’s Aaron True, above, takes home a gold medal and a state track meet record Friday in the javelin. Below, SCC’s Walker Harred releases a throw in the discus. The teammates each recorded the three best marks of their competition to easily win gold. REGISTER/RICHARD LUKEN

WICHITA — There’s gold in them thar arms. Southern Coffey County’s Walker Harred and Aaron True put a golden touch to the state track meet, winning the Class 1A discus and javelin, respectively. There wasn’t much doubt in either case, although True decided to add some drama by blasting the old 1A state meet record set seven years earlier by Goessel’s Garrett Hiebert. True’s throw traveled 202 feet, trumping Hiebert’s 2007 mark of 195 feet, 7 inches. Harred, meanwhile, knew he had the discus gold in hand when he lined up for his last throw. Still, he saved his best for last, throwing the discus 155’10”. How dominant were the Titans’ dynamic duo? Both had the three longest throws of the day in their reSee TRACK | Page B5

Wilson caps successful year; Driskel advances By RICHARD LUKEN The Iola Register

WICHITA — Michael Wilson’s high school track career ended Friday morning with a painful, yet satisfying, conclusion. Wilson landed awkwardly on his elbow during warmups for the Class 4A boys pole vault at the state track meet. “I landed on it wrong,” he said. “It’s sore, but it didn’t affect me.” Wilson cleared 12 feet, but could go no higher, finishing 11th. “I’m happy because I made it to state,” Wilson said. “That was my goal.” The timing of the event also was to his liking. The pole vault was among the first events of the twoday track meet. Wilson’s work was complete before a good portion of the estimated crowd of 22,000 arrived at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium.

“That’s the way I like it,” he said. “I’m able to get it out of the way quickly.” Wilson will be in town the rest of the weekend to cheer on his teammates, including junior Emery Driskel, who has assured herself of a state medal in the Class 4A 110-meter hurdles. Driskel qualified for today’s final by placing the eighth-fastest time in Friday morning’s preliminaries, finishing in 16.75 seconds. The top eight qualify for finals; all will earn medals. Driskel wasn’t as fortuitous in the 300-meter hurdles. Her time of 50.14 seconds was a full 1 1/2 seconds off the final qualifying mark. IOLA wraps up state track action today. Driskel’s 100 hurdles final is scheduled to start at 9:39 a.m. Iola’s 4x800-meter squad takes to the track at shortly after noon. Tyler Powelson runs the 1600 meters at 2:26.

Lady Cubs: Humboldt takes third in Class 3A state tournament Continued from B1

Turner hit an RBI-double, tying the game, and heads up base running allowed her to move to third. Courtney Richey found herself on first after four straight balls, during an unintentionalintentional walk. With two outs, Kayle Riebel struck out, leaving the runners stranded. That was a sorely missed opportunity. The game moved to the eighth, still tied 1-1. After two infield fly outs, it looked like the Lady Cubs would move to the bottom half of the inning tied. Instead, they hit a single, giving them life. The very next batter laced a double to left-centerfield. The score was 2-1, Silver Lake. A bloop single into shallow right field got over Turner’s head, and with two outs, the runner from second was running on contact. That’s all Silver Lake needed to win 3-1. Richey pitched all eight innings, striking out eight and allowing just six hits and no walks. GAME TWO had little offense. “It was tough to get everyone up for this game,” Piley said. “We really never did get it going until the end.” Richey received the nod again. This time she went five innings striking out two, allowing one run on four hits and one walk. The Lady Lions of Lyons scored the first run, coming in the third inning. After a triple on a ball that got under Hulett’s glove in left field, the runner was hit in on a fielder’s choice. The Lady Cubs answered in the bottom of the inning. Richey hit a leadoff single. Riebel

laid down a sacrifice bunt, moving Richey to second. The pitcher threw the ball wild toward second, which also resulted in Riebel standing at first. Richey stole third and the catcher threw a ball into the outfield, allowing Richey to score and Riebel to move to second. Delaney Umholtz hit an RBI-single. In her attempt to move to third base, she was tagged out after she overran the bag. That’s all the scoring that Humboldt needed, giving them the 2-1 win and the third place trophy. Turner came in for relief in the sixth inning, tossing two scoreless frames. “I thought that Turner came in and threw two great innings for us,” Piley said. “Courtney’s arm was hurting, so she gave us two great in-

Humboldt finished the season with a 25-1 record, the sole loss coming one game earlier in heart-breaking fashion.

word to describe this season. “Awesome,” he said. “25-1, that’s pretty good and we finished on a win, too.” The Lady Cubs only have three seniors leaving, and should be in good shape for next season. Richey, who’s only loss on the season came in the semifinal game Thursday, will be a junior next season. Mallory Roush, who had a quiet tournament, but a solid season at the plate, will be back for one more season. Kline, the leadoff hitter and starting shortstop, will be back for her senior year. Starting catcher Morgan Morris and starting first baseman Kayle Riebel are the only starters not returning. Haley Riebel is the other senior on the team.

Cain, Gordon homer in KC win TORONTO (AP) — Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain homered, Jason Vargas won for the first time in three starts and the Kansas City Royals beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 on Friday night. Cain went 3 for 4 and matched a career high with four RBIs, and Gordon reached base three times as the Royals won their second straight and handed Toronto its second consecutive loss following a seasonbest nine-game winning streak. The home runs were the 23rd and 24th of the season for the Royals, whose total is the lowest in the majors. Vargas (5-2) allowed one run and seven hits in six innings, walked three and struck out seven. He’s 2-0 with a 1.60 ERA in six road starts this season. Aaron Crow worked the seventh and Kevin Herrera pitched the final two innings, striking out Dioner Navarro for the final out and stranding runners at first and second. Vargas allowed a leadoff triple to Jose Reyes in the first and issued a one-out walk to Jose Bautista, but escaped by getting Edwin Encarnacion and Brett Lawrie to fly out. Cain got the Royals on the board with an RBI single off left-hander J.A. Happ in the second, and Gordon followed Butler’s leadoff single by homering on a 3-2 pitch in the fourth. Bautista replied with a two-out homer in the fifth, but the Royals restored their three-run lead in the sixth. Gordon drew a one-out walk and was almost caught steal-

ing but ended up at second after Encarnacion dropped Happ’s pickoff throw. The mistake hurt Toronto when Cain drove in Gordon with a two-out single. The Blue Jays put run-

ners at the corners with two outs in the seventh but Navarro flied out to center. Kansas City chased Happ and capped the scoring in the eighth on Cain’s two-out homer.

The Iola Register

White House press secretary, Jay Carney, steps down WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; White House press secretary Jay Carney became the news instead of just delivering it Friday, when President Barack Obama unexpectedly interrupted the daily media briefing to announce Carneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resignation after three and a half years as his primary spokesman. Obama said it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;bittersweetâ&#x20AC;? to see his friend Carney step down and announced that principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest will take over the job. Carney said the transition will take place around mid-June,

but Earnest will take his place traveling next week on Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip to Europe. Carney brought rare but practical experience to the job as a former reporter who once covered the White House for Time magazine. He left journalism to become communications director for Vice President Joe Biden and subsequently moved over to serve as Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press secretary in 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He comes to this place with a reporterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective,â&#x20AC;? Obama told reporters after interrupting

Carney midsentence as he responded to a question on Ukraine in the Brady Press Briefing Room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, believe it or not, I think he will miss hanging out with you.â&#x20AC;? A key component of a White House press secretaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job is to regularly joust with reporters in an intense question-andanswer session. Obama said he is putting the â&#x20AC;&#x153;flak jacketâ&#x20AC;? for dealing with the press on another friend in Earnest, who has worked with Obama since he was his communications direc-


tor for the Iowa caucuses in the 2008 campaign. The affable Earnest is well-liked within the White House press corps, and is seen as helpful. Reporters applauded the announcement. Earnest is a native of Kansas City, Mo., and Obama noted he still roots for the hometown baseball team, the Royals, as the son of an athletic coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you know, his name describes his demeanor,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Josh is an earnest guy and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find just a nicer individual even outside of Washington.â&#x20AC;?

Jay Carney, White House press secretary for 3½ years, resigned Friday.


A couple of questions we just had to ask ourselves


For Jimmie, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about winning, but winning at right time AP/TERRY RENNA

Jimmie Johnson finally got the sweet taste of victory. Is this the start of another run to the championship?


Is this Jack Roushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future exdriver? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking that way. Do you think Jeff Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back pain spells career trouble? GODSPEAK: No, it means Gordon needs to carry a supply of aspirin for middle-age aches and pains. KENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CALL: It certainly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spell Y-a-y. I hear itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keeping him out of the U.S. Open in two weeks.

Jimmie Johnson had never gone this far into a NASCAR Cup Series season without a win, but that all changed when he captured the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Sunday night. Johnson has never won fewer than two races or finished lower than sixth in final points driving the No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. After the win, the six-time champion talked about the pressure of netting that first victory. Was there any point in the beginning of the season up until now that you started to panic because you hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a win? Was there any extra added pressure coming into tonight? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No. I mean, the first goal is to make the Chase. You want to win races at the end of the season. You have to win races at the end of the season to be the champion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course, we want to win early and often. But we were holding steady in the championship points. In my opinion, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe there will be 16 different winners. I felt like a strong championship points posi-

Where will Carl Edwards be driving next year? GODSPEAK: A Team Penske ride would keep Edwards in the Ford camp. KENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CALL: My Magic 8-Ball hints at Ganassi, but I hear itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really magic. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be Gibbs.

KURT RICK BUSCH HENDRICK Kurt Busch vs. Hendrick Motorsports: Busch said he has not been happy with the motors he is getting from the Hendrick camp. Godwin Kelly gives his take: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If this keeps up, Busch is going to blow up after another engine failure.â&#x20AC;?

WHATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ON TAP? SPRINT CUP: FexEx 400 SITE: Dover International Speedway SCHEDULE: Friday, practice (Fox Sports 1, 11 a.m.), qualifying (Fox Sports 1, 3:30 p.m.).

tion would get us into the first phase of the Chase. Granted, tonight simplifies things. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it, move on.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really want to heat up and win races later in the season, especially before the Chase starts. More than anything, I just got tired of answering the question. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of frustration due to pressure of winning. There was frustration in not having fast race cars.â&#x20AC;? After you won the pole you said you wanted folks in the garage to fear the No. 48 again. Do you feel like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to happen or do you need to win at Dover as well? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re off to a good start. Multiple wins do that. If we can take advantage of the next few tracks that are great tracks for us, it would be great momentum. Ideally youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to do it before the Chase gets started and carry that right into the start of the Chase. But you never know when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to peak and when everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be just right.â&#x20AC;?
