She helped block a bill that would have recognized a Supreme Court decision by removing Kansas’ criminal penalties for sodomy between two consenting people at least 16 years old. So two years ago, Powell and a group of about 10 other supporters of gay rights decided to found a Hutchinson chapter of

the Kansas Equality Coalition. “Jan was the common denominator,” said Powell, who became the chapter’s chairman. “We decided that if they couldn’t get anything done at the state level, let’s try to get something started at the local level.” Last November they approached the Hutchinson City Council, requesting that the city’s anti-discrimination ordinance be amended to prohibit

discrimination based on sexual orientation. After a series of public forums that confirmed a deep divide over the issue, passage of limited protection on June 5, two petition campaigns and repeal of the June 5 ordinance, that effort comes to a head on Nov. 6 – when Hutchinson residents will give an up or down vote on whether gays, lesbians and bisexuals should have broad protection from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations.

WICHITA – A former Kansas county attorney claimed he had no memory of a 1961 letter in which he declined to prosecute two Boy Scout leaders even though the men had confessed to molesting numerous Scouts in their care. Former Harvey County Attorney Richard Hrdlicka wrote that prosecuting the case would harm the reputation of the Scouts, a local YMCA and several churches and he thought the price to the community would be “too great.” That letter was among a secret trove of “perversion files” kept by the Boy Scouts of America and released Thursday by order of the Oregon Supreme Court. The 14,500 pages of confidential files dating from 1959 to 1985 include 14 Kansas cases. In one, a Newton Scoutmaster admitted that during allnight parties at his house, he would take one boy at a time into his bedroom for the purposes of “immoral acts.” An investigation revealed some 10 boys were molested by the then-41-year-old

Father and 4-year-old son killed in shooting INGLEWOOD, Calif. – Police searched for a gunman who wore a painter’s mask as he set fire to a home before going on a shooting spree early Saturday, killing a father and his 4-year-old son and injuring a woman and two other young children near Los Angeles. The 30-year-old father was shielding two of his children when he was shot, Inglewood Police Chief Mark Fronterotta said. Also, the 28-year-old woman – said to be the children’s mother – carried the wounded 4-year-old to a neighbor’s yard after the attack. “This extraordinary rescue attempt by the mother occurred in spite of the fact that she had gunshot wounds to both legs,” a police department statement said.

Lebanon on edge after car bomb

Reports: Marcellus Shale natural gas has impact


PITTSBURGH – There’s been plenty of debate over the Marcellus Shale natural gas field, but new research adds a twist that could impact political and environmental battles. Two independent financial firms say the Marcellus isn’t just the biggest natural gas field in the country – it’s the cheapest place for energy companies to drill. One of the reports adds that the Marcellus reserves that lie below parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and New York are far larger than recent government estimates, while another said the powerful combination of resource, cost and location is altering natural gas prices and market trends across the nation. The Marcellus could contain “almost half of the current proven natural gas reserves in the U.S,” a report from Standard & Poor’s issued this week said.

BEIRUT – Lebanese protesters erected flaming roadblocks and gunmen roamed the streets Saturday in a city on edge after the assassination of a top security official in a powerful car bomb the prime minister linked to the civil war in neighboring Syria. The crisis raised a terrifying specter for Lebanese who fear their country could easily plunge back into cycles of violence and reprisal that have haunted it for decades. Friday’s blast in the heart of Beirut’s Christian area killed eight people, including the country’s intelligence chief, Brig. Gen. Wissam alHassan. It was the deadliest bombing in Beirut in four years, shattering the country’s uneasy calm. The government declared a national day of mourning for the victims Saturday, but protesters burned tires and set up roadblocks in anger. Sharbal Abdo, who lives in the neighborhood where the bomb went off, brought his 6year-old son, Chris, and 12year-old daughter, Jane, to see the destruction Saturday. “They were very afraid yesterday,” he said. “They need to face this situation. It may be their future.” Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati on Saturday linked the bombing to al-Hassan’s high-profile investigation this summer that uncovered what authorities called a plot by Syria to provoke chaos in Lebanon with bombings and assassinations. “I don’t want to prejudge the investigation, but in fact we cannot separate yesterday’s crime from the revelation of the explosions that could have happened,”

People with meningitis face long recovery OCALA, Fla. – Vilinda York lies in her Florida hospital bed, facing a dry-erase board that lists in green marker her name, her four doctors and a smiley face. Also on the board is this: “Anticipated date of discharge: NOT YET DETERMINED.” The 64-year-old contracted fungal meningitis after receiving three tainted steroid shots in her back. She’s one of 284 people nationwide who are victims of an outbreak that began when a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy shipped contaminated medication. Twenty-three people have died. Like many trying to recover, York, who has been hospitalized since Sept. 27, faces a long and uncertain road. Many people have died days or even weeks after being hospitalized. Fungal meningitis – which is not contagious – is a tenacious disease that can be treated only with powerful drugs.

Lebanese mourners light candles during a vigil for Brig. Gen. Wissam al-Hassan and at least seven others who were killed in a Friday bomb attack in Beirut on Saturday. Mikati said at a news conference following an emergency Cabinet meeting. Mikati, who opponents believe is too close to Syria and the Shiite militant group Hezbollah, offered to resign after the bombing, but was asked by President Michel Suleiman to stay. Al-Hassan’s probe led to the arrest of former Information Minister Michel Samaha, one of Assad’s most loyal allies in Lebanon. Samaha, who is in custody, is accused of plotting a wave of attacks in Lebanon at Syria’s behest. Indicted in absentia in the August sweep was Syrian Brig. Gen. Ali Mamlouk, one of Assad’s highest aides. Samaha’s arrest was an embarrassing blow to Syria, which has long acted with impunity in Lebanon. Syria has powerful allies here, including the Shiite militant group Hezbollah, which now dominates the government. For much of the past 30 years, Lebanese have lived under Syrian military and political domination.

Damascus’ hold on Lebanon began to slip in 2005, when former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was assassinated in truck bomb

along Beirut’s Mediterranean waterfront. Syria denied having any role. But broad public outrage in Lebanon forced Syria to withdraw its troops from the country. The killings of anti-Syrian figures continued for years, however, and Assad has managed to maintain his influence in Lebanon through Hezbollah and other allies. Now, as the Syrian civil war rages just across the border, Lebanon increasingly is getting sucked in. Mikati said Saturday he had offered to resign after Friday’s car bomb, but said Suleiman asked him not to plunge the country into more uncertainty. The bombing raised fears that the crisis could unleash Lebanon’s sectarian tensions, a dire scenario for a country that endured a devastating civil war of its own from 1975-1990.

Libya: Gadhafi ex-spokesman arrested BY ESAM MOHAMED The Associated Press

Al-Qaida in Afghanistan attempting a comeback ■ U.S. officials are satis-

fied group’s presence is small and containable. BY DEB RIECHMANN The Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan – A diminished but resilient alQaida, whose 9/11 attacks drew America into its longest war, is attempting a comeback in Afghanistan’s mountainous east even as U.S. and allied forces wind down their combat mission and concede a small but steady toehold to the terrorist group. That concerns U.S. commanders, who have intensified strikes against al-Qaida cells in recent months. It also undercuts an Obama administration narrative portraying al-Qaida as battered to the point of being a nonissue in Afghanistan as Western troops start leaving. When he visited Afghanistan in May to mark the one-year anniversary of the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, President Barack Obama said his administration had turned the tide of war. “The goal that I set – to defeat al-Qaida, and deny it a chance to rebuild – is within reach,” he said. As things stand, however, an unquestionably weakened al-Qaida appears to have preserved at least limited means of regenerating inside Afghanistan as U.S. influence in the country wanes. The last U.S. combat troops are scheduled to be gone by Dec. 31, 2014, and security matters turned over to the Afghan government. “They are trying to increase their numbers and take advantage of the Americans leaving,” the police chief of Paktika province, Gen. Dawlat Khan Zadran, said through a translator in an interview this month in the governor’s compound. He mentioned no numbers, but said al-Qaida has moved more weapons across the border from Pakistan. For years the main target of U.S.-led forces has been the Taliban, rulers of Afghanistan and protectors of al-Qaida before the U.S. invasion 11 years ago. But the strategic goal is to prevent al-Qaida from again finding haven in Afghanistan from which to launch attacks on the U.S. Al-Qaida’s leadership fled in late 2001 to neighboring Pakistan, where it remains. The group remains active inside Afghanistan, fighting U.S. troops, spreading extremist messages, raising money, recruiting young Afghans and providing military expertise to the Taliban and other radical groups. U.S. Gen. John Allen, the top commander of international forces in Afghanistan, has said al-Qaida has reemerged, and although its numbers are small, he says the group doesn’t need a large presence to be influential. U.S. officials say they are committed, even after the combat mission ends in 2014, to doing whatever it takes to prevent a major resurgence. The Americans intend, for example, to have special operation forces at the ready to keep a longterm lid on al-Qaida inside Afghanistan. A more immediate worry is the threat posed by the growing presence of al-Qaida and affiliated groups in

Yemen, Somalia and across a broad swath of North Africa, where it is believed al-Qaida-linked militants may have been responsible for the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. U.S. and Afghan officials say al-Qaida also has been building ties with like-minded Islamic militant groups present in Afghanistan, including Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is blamed for the November 2008 rampage in Mumbai, India, that killed 166 people, and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which is present in the north. Ahmadullah Mowahed, a member of the Afghan parliament from the eastern province of Nuristan, along the Pakistan border, said he fears the departure of American combat forces will open the way for the Taliban and al-Qaida to overwhelm the provincial government. “As soon as they leave, the eyes of al-Qaida will quickly focus on Nuristan,” he said. U.S. analysts say there is reason for concern that alQaida is down, but not out. “They’ve been hit hard in a few cases, but they definitely are involved in the fight – absolutely,” said Seth G. Jones, a senior political scientist at RAND Corp. Jones, a former adviser to the commander of U.S. special operations forces in Afghanistan, recently returned from a trip to eastern Afghanistan where he learned that al-Qaida’s support network has expanded and its relations with groups such as the Pakistani-based Haqqani network are strong. Richard Barrett, head of a U.N. group that monitors the threat posed by al-Qaida and the Taliban, said al-Qaida fears the Taliban will strike a deal with the Afghan government that would make the group all but irrelevant. “So they will be doing whatever they can to assert their influence, to assert their presence” in Afghanistan, he said. At least for now, al-Qaida in Afghanistan has no capability to launch attacks on the U.S., although commanders are taking no chances. Little-noticed fragmentary U.S. military accounts of raids and strikes against alQaida in the northeastern provinces of Kunar and

Nuristan show the group retains a command structure inside Afghanistan. On May 27 the U.S. killed the No. 2 commander in Afghanistan, Saudi national Sakhr alTaifi, in Kunar, but it has yet to catch up to the top al-Qaida commander in the country, identified by U.S. officials as Farouk al-Qahtani, who resides in Nuristan. In early September the international military coalition announced the death of an al-Qaida operative, Abu Saif, described as an associate of an al-Qaida leader killed along with several of his fighters July 1 in Kunar. Saif was called a conduit between senior al-Qaida leaders in Pakistan and Afghanistan, passing messages between them. In the most recent strike, officials said Sept. 27 they killed alQaida “facilitator” Abdul Rauf in Kunar. He was a Pakistani coordinator of foreign fighters’ movements into Afghanistan and a builder of improvised explosive devices for attacks on coalition troops. Interviews with Afghan officials suggest that al-Qaida also is present in other parts of the country, including the northwestern province of Faryab as well as Logar province, just south of Kabul. Logar’s provincial chief of police, Gen. Ghulam Sakhi Roogh Lawanay, said it is difficult to know how many militants are directly affiliated with al-Qaida, but he estimated their numbers in Logar at 100 to 150. “Al-Qaida is very active. It is like fish. When one fish dies, another comes,” he said in a recent interview. “The determination of these Arab fighters is high.” In interviews in Kabul and Washington, U.S. officials said they are satisfied that al-Qaida is so small inside Afghanistan – they put the number at between 50 and 100 fighters – that they can be contained indefinitely if the Afghan government allows U.S. counterterrorism forces to monitor and hunt the remnants. U.S. and Afghan officials are working to craft talks on a bilateral security agreement that could include such an arrangement. U.S. commanders say they will keep pressure on al-Qaida to frustrate its goals, but few believe al-Qaida will be gone before U.S. troops leave. “I see no evidence to suggest that it will be eliminated by 2014,” said Jones, the RAND analyst.

TRIPOLI, Libya – The Libyan government on Saturday announced the capture of Moammar Gadhafi’s ex-spokesman outside a besieged town, as the oil-rich North African nation marked the anniversary of the ousted dictator’s death. The statement by the prime minister’s office said Moussa Ibrahim, who became the international face of the regime in its final months, was captured as he was tryIBRAHIM ing to flee Bani Walid. The town has been the site of fierce fighting between pro-government forces and fighters holed up in what was once a stronghold for Gadhafi supporters. “He is now being transported to Tripoli so that the investigation by relevant authorities can begin,” the statement from the prime minister’s office said. The statement did not say what charges Ibrahim would face, but Libyan officials in the past have suggested he might be accused of incitement and disseminating false information. A Facebook page that purported to belong to Ibrahim

denied the capture and said it was an effort to divert attention away from the “atrocities” being committed by the Libyan forces besieging Bani Walid. The site and statement could not be independently confirmed. However, hours after the announcement of

his capture, Ibrahim had not been seen in public. Violence has flared periodically over the last year in Bani Walid, the most significant town in Libya still resisting the country’s new authorities since the end of the country’s civil war last year.

Volunteer patroller enjoys his duties BY KATHY HANKS The Hutchinson News

Jack Showalter keeps pretty early hours for a retired man. But he looks forward to showing up at 7 a.m. in Hutchinson’s Municipal Court four mornings a week. He’s the volunteer bailiff and handles all files for the judge and escorts people from the courtroom after the judge is through with them, leading them to the court office to pay the fine. “I like it real well,” the 73year-old Showalter said of his volunteer duties. He joined the Volunteer Patrol back in 2009. “Jack is by far our most active volunteer,” said Capt. Troy Hoover. Showalter, a retired city worker, said he thought the volunteer patrol was a great opportunity. “I’m just a common ordinary person,” Showalter said. But he enjoys all the different assignments he gets including serving Municipal Court subpoenas, traffic control, house checks, and patrolling Main Street during Third Thursday. Along with their myriad

Generally there are eight or nine officers patrolling per shift in the city of about 40,800 residents. During the busy weekend, four officers were assigned the Rod Run along Main Street, eight were on duty at the Tech N9ne concert, four were at the HCC football game, and two were assigned the baptism party at the Eagles Lodge. “We were expecting issues,” Hoover said. But, there were no incidents re-

Hrdlicka, who served as Harvey County attorney from 1960 to 1964, initially laughed Friday when The Associated Press contacted him by telephone and told him about the letter’s release. “I have absolutely no recollection, and I do not intend to do a whole bunch of work on something that I wrote 50 years ago — so just leave it at that,” said Hrdlicka, who now lives in Santa Fe, N.M. His letter, sent in June 1961 to a Scout executive in Wichita, said the men were required to cut all ties with the Boy Scouts and any other youth organizations and to get psychiatric treatment. “After the complete admission of these two persons, I came to the decision that to openly prosecute would cause great harm to the reputations of two organizations which we have involved here — the Boy Scouts of America and the local Y.M.C.A. , as well as damage to the reputations of at least two churches,” Hrdlicka wrote. “I felt then and do now feel that the price which the community would have to pay for the punishment of these two individuals would be too great, in view of the fact that the damage thusly done to these organizations

They meet once a month and discuss upcoming activities. They also direct traffic at parades and sporting events, and assist the officers wher-

ever they are needed. “It’s police work, but mostly it’s assisting,” said Lt. Jason Yingling, who coordinates the volunteers along with Sgt. Eric Buller. Currently there are about six regular volunteers, but more are always needed. For someone interested in be-

coming involved Yingling suggests contacting him at (620) 694-2814. Volunteers can be age 21 to 80, and need to pass a background check. Yingling suggests going on a ride along with an officer to see what the job involves. “It’s a good organization,” Showalter said.

ported. Perhaps the presence of law enforcement officers deterred any problems. “Maybe we overreacted,” Hoover said with a smile. But, had something occurred at one of the events and officers weren’t present, it would have been a huge problem. Hiring off-duty officers for special events at Hutchinson Community College and Hutchinson High School is a regular occurrence, officials said, in an effort to keep the events safe. “The athletic department hires the extra security during athletic events because they have limited security on campus,” said HCC President Ed Berger. “We just have one person

and hire a security firm to patrol the campus at night. If it’s our event we hire them. We appreciate that they are available.” Bringing in the extra officers had to rank up there with one of busiest weekends for off duty officers according to Hoover. Robert Guerrero hired the extra security following the baptism of his two young sons, Roberto, 4 years, and Adahir, 1, on Oct. 6, at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. His sister had a baptism party and things got out of hand. There was a fight, and someone broke out windows of several vehicles. Guerrero had heard rumors that the same troublemakers were planning to

crash his party with baseball bats and guns, breaking out windows. “I didn’t want any trouble,” Guerrero said. “I asked them (police) to be around and it made it better. People knew they were there.” As it turned out, about 200 guests enjoyed celebrating the special event. “It was worth it,” Guerrero said. “I did it for my family.” Furthermore, the entire weekend was uneventful. “We like it like that,” said Lt. Jason Yingling, with the Hutchinson Police Department. Berger agreed. “If the officers are there and nothing happens, it’s a wonderful evening,” said Berger.

Six of the 14 cases in the secret Boy Scout files were from troops in Wichita, and two were from Leavenworth. The others were from Arkansas City, Hoisington, Kansas City, Manhattan, Newton and Olathe. At least three of the suspects were eventually imprisoned for committing sex crimes against other children years later, Kansas corrections records show. Mike Johnson, executive for the Boy Scouts of America Quivira Council, said the organization has since instituted criminal background checks, training programs and mandatory reporting to law enforcement authorities of suspected child abuse. “The Boy Scouts of America believes any occurrence of abuse is unacceptable, and we regret there have been times when the BSA’s best efforts to protect children were insufficient,” Johnson said. “For that, we are deeply sorry and extend our deepest sympathies to victims.” Kansas law largely didn’t address child sex crimes in 1961. It punished a “crime

against nature,” which it defined as homosexuality, sodomy and bestiality, with up to 10 years for a first conviction. Child abuse or mistreatment of a child was a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail. The state also had no programs to help or advocate for abuse victims back then, said Joyce Grover, executive director of the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. “The culture in 1961 around many crimes like this against children was that it was just not talked about as criminal behavior,” Grover said. Today, Kansas law mandates a minimum sentence of 25 years to life for a first conviction of violent sexual crimes, including aggravated sodomy and sexual exploitation of a child. A second offense carries a minimum 40 years to life. Sex offenders released from prison must register for life.

would be serious and lasting.” Michael Kaye, director of Washburn University School of Law’s Center for Excellence in Advocacy in Topeka said times were different then, but that doesn’t excuse a failure to prosecute someone who committed crimes against children that people knew were wrong even in the 1960s. “It is legitimate for a prosecutor to be concerned about the disruption in the community and that sort of thing, that is true,” Kaye said. “But that is not their primary responsibility. It is the protection of the public that they are supposed to be mainly concerned with.” Prosecutors have wide discretion on whether to prosecute, he said. “Today we are much more open about our willingness to look into organizations that have within them people who are lawbreakers and predators,” Kaye said, citing the case against a Catholic bishop in Kansas City for failure to report child sex abuse and the abuse scandal that rocked Penn State, leading to the prosecution of an assistant coach and sanctions against its football program.

Driving law showing fewer accidents ■ Experts, researchers say

Kansas graduated license program working. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WICHITA — A graduated driver’s license law that went into effect in January 2010 has helped sharply reduce the number of accidents involving teenage drivers, safety experts said, as younger drivers are getting more practice before being turned free on the highways. Kansas Department of Transportation records show the number of accidents involving drivers 14 through 16 years old dropped from more than 5,000 in 2004 and 2005 to fewer than 3,000 last year. The Wichita Eagle reported the number of fatalities involving drivers in that age group went from an average of 22 a year from 2004 through 2009 to 15 in 2010 and nine in 2011. “I think that’s exactly the outcome we expected,” said Suzanne Wikle, director of policy and research for Kansas Action for Children, a nonprofit group that pushed for the law. Increased seat belt usage among teen drivers also has had a major impact on the statistics, said Jim Hanni, spokesman for AAA Kansas. “We’ve definitely made some wonderful strides in a very short period of time,” he said. KDOT traffic safety chief Pete Bodyk said the number

of accidents involving young drivers was trending downward even before the graduated licensing law went into effect. He said other laws passed by the Kansas Legislature over the years, including a 2007 law that required

14- to 17-year-olds to wear seat belts, also have helped. The graduated license law carries two major provisions designed to increase the amount of supervision a teenage driver receives before getting an unrestricted

license. The first requires all teenage drivers to have a learner’s permit for 12 months before obtaining a restricted or unrestricted license. A restricted license allows unsupervised driving to and from work or school. A 16-year-old who gets a full license is prohibited during the first six months from using a cellphone while driving, having more than one non-sibling minor passenger, and driving after 9 p.m. except to and from work or school. “Age is a factor; there’s no question about that,” Hanni said. “But of the two — age and inexperience — inexperience is the greatest factor” in predicting which young drivers will have accidents. Hanni said an increase in seat belt use, spurred by a program called Seatbelts Are For Everyone, or SAFE, has been a big factor in teen driving safety. The program, which started in Crawford County in 2008, asks students to sign cards pledging to always wear seat belts. Participants are eligible for monthly $25 gift card drawings, with grand prizes awarded to schools with the highest compliance rate and the biggest increase in seat belt usage. David Corp, a retired Kansas Highway Patrol trooper who helped launch the program, said compliance rates at participating schools has risen, on average, from 73.7 percent to 82 percent.

BRIEFS Hutch woman injured in crash near Bunker Hill BUNKER HILL - A Hutchinson woman was injured Saturday afternoon after losing control of her vehicle while traveling on I70 just east of Bunker Hill. Bonnie Lou Abendschan, 60, was driving a 2002 Freightliner van east when the vehicle veered towards the south ditch and over corrected, the Kansas Highway Patrol reported. The van then overcorrected a second time then entered the south ditch broad side, rolling one and one quarter times. The vehicle came to rest on the driver’s side facing west. The accident occurred at 5:20 p.m., according to the patrol. Abendschan, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to Russell Regional Hospital where her condition was unavailable.

Libraries team with Ike and Harry program ABILENE – Two experts on Dwight Eisenhower and Harry Truman will speak next week in Kansas about the paths the two Midwesterners took to the White House and their legacies as president. Tim Rives is deputy director of the Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene. Sam Rushay is the supervisory archivist at the Truman Presidential Library in Independence, Mo. They’ll speak Tuesday night at the Eisenhower Library about the lives and times and legacies of the two presidents. Truman, a Democrat, was

president in the final months of World War II while Eisenhower was serving as Allied commander in Europe. Truman was elected to a full term in 1948. Eisenhower, a Republican, defeated Adlai Stevenson in 1952 to win the first of his two terms as president.

Father arrested after chase with 5 kids in SUV WICHITA – Wichita police say a 35-year-old man who led officers on a short chase had his five young children in his vehicle, none of them in safety restraints. The Wichita Eagle reports the man was booked into jail Thursday night on suspicion of several offenses, including child endangerment. Police said the man was wanted on warrants over child support and was driving with a suspended license. Police Lt. Doug Nolte said the incident began when officers spotted an SUV with dark tinted windows that was going too fast. Police said the driver ran several stop signs during the chase, then stopped in a store parking lot. Relatives were called to pick up the children, who were 3 to 10 years old.

Life sentences in 1993 Topeka death upheld TOPEKA – The Kansas Supreme Court upheld two

life sentences for a man convicted in 1993 execution-style slaying in Topeka. The court on Friday rejected Jason Wade Schaeffer’s argument that the Shawnee County judge who sentenced him was biased against him. Schaeffer and Joshua Kaiser were convicted in 1994 of killing 33-year-old Timothy Riley, who was abducted from his home, forced into a car trunk and driven around before Schaeffer eventually shot him in the head. While sentencing Schaeffer, Judge Thomas Conklin, among other things, called Schaeffer “grossly wicked” and said he wished he could impose a longer sentence. The court called Conklin’s statements excessive and illadvised but said they were not enough to set aside Schaeffer’s sentences.

Driver distracted by balloons hits Topeka hotel TOPEKA – A young Topeka driver distracted by balloons lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a hotel, narrowly missing a woman inside one of the hotel’s rooms. Topeka police said the helium balloons inside the car were obstructing 17-year-old Kelli Young’s vision while she drove Thursday night. When she tried to push them out of the way, her SUV crashed through a perimeter fence, a fire hydrant and hit two vehi-

cles in the parking lot of the Value Place hotel. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Young’s vehicle eventually ended up halfway into hotel room. Twenty-eight-year-old Michelle Williams of El Dorado was staying in the room. She said the vehicle stopped about 3 inches from her. No one was injured. Charges have not been filed. – From staff, wire reports

Vote ●From Page A1 Hutchinsonians “Vote Yes for Fairness,” while opponents want them to “Vote No” and “Protect Religious Liberty.” “We know it’s an uphill battle,” Powell said. “But we wanted to educate the community. That was the whole goal – to educate the community and put a face to it with some of the people who are out. We are normal people. We have normal jobs. Some of us have kids.” And, he insists, they don’t want special rights, just the same rights to protection from discrimination that others have under city law when discrimination is based on race, religion, color, age, sex, disability, national origin or ancestry. But Paul Waggoner, a spokesman for Awaken Hutchinson, insists equally emphatically that the ordinance, if adopted, will have widereaching implications, WAGGONER subjecting business owners to complaints of discrimination when they didn’t necessarily know that an employee, customer or renter was gay, lesbian or bi-sexual. The ordinance also will infringe upon freedom of conscience, a right to conduct their business in a manner consistent with their religion or moral code, he said. “This is not about social justice or equality,” Waggoner said. “This is that they want affirmation of their lifestyle and they want the ability to stigmatize those who disagree.” Campaign heats up After weeks of near invisibility, the campaigns are now obvious, with hundreds of competing yard signs, public gatherings and some radio and cable television advertising expected in the last few days before the election. And there are indications that it’s getting a little dirty. “Vote Yes” chairman Taylor Harris accused opponents of foul play for purchasing the and Web domains and redirecting visitors to those pages to the oppoHARRIS nents’ Awaken Hutchinson website. Waggoner chuckled when asked if he had anything to do with it. “I can neither confirm or deny that,” he said. On the other hand, Waggoner said that more than 35 of the “Vote No” yard signs have been stolen. He expected some vandalism of signs in a political campaign, but was surprised at how quickly the signs disappeared. In some cases it was less than 24 hours after being put up. And in few cases, replacement signs also have been stolen. Harris said at least eight to 10 “Vote Yes” signs had also been either stolen or torn to pieces. Even before the campaigns began picking up, City Council Member Bob Bush, who has cast the critical swing vote in the council decisions on the issue, said he was fed up with the rhetoric. “When people from the religious right say protective class BUSH status means transvestites will go to the Y to take a shower with their children, I find that ludicrous and a very distasteful and disturbing example of trying to scare people into a point of view,” he said. “And when the left – the pro-protected class side – says anyone that doesn’t agree with them is a homophobe and hateful person, I find that just as disturbing and distasteful a way to gain support for their position as anything the right says.” Community conversation When the City Council first discussed the issue, it was clear it had the support of Council Members Ron Sellers and Cindy Proett. It was equally clear it was opposed by Mayor Dave Razo and Council Member Dean

Sellers makes his feelings well known BY THE NEWS STAFF

City Council Member Ron Sellers and his wife, Ann, have made their feelings as plain as the billboard on the northwest corner of Fourth and Adams. The billboard features a photo of a group of men and women of various races, blue collar and white collar. Across the top a headline says “Inclusive or Exclusive.” At the bottom is the question “What does community mean to you?” The “unity” in community is highlighted. A smaller line says the billboard was paid for by Ron and Ann Sellers. “I think it expresses my feeling of what community should be,” Sellers said. “Community should be unity and for people to

Hutchinson City Council member Ron Sellers asks questions about the ordinance passed in June at the council meeting. look for ways to be unified and not to be separated.” When people step into the ballot box on Nov. 6,

Sellers hopes they will consider how they would feel if they were discriminated against, as women

were when they didn’t have the right to vote and as African-Americans were before the civil rights movement of the 1960s. “I think that’s what I do a lot of,” he said. “How would I personally feel if I was in the place of somebody that has faced discrimination issues? I don’t think personally I have ever seen discrimination – you know, as a white, male, middle-class person in Kansas.” Approving the ordinance won’t change things overnight, he said. But it will make people think more and as they do, he said, “they will come to the conclusion long-term that we should all be judged on our merits and not on our potential lifestyles.”



Seven Reasons to Vote No From Awaken Hutchinson ● This amendment creates a “protected class” that is totally unlike any before. It sets a terrible precedent to privilege this behavior. ● This amendment is unjustified. During the city forums in March a lot of stormy rhetoric was seen but incredibly few examples of even alleged discrimination. The proponents of this measure were reaching back 10 years or more and citing situations that did not even happen in Hutchinson proper. ● Kansas law for rentals currently involves signing a contract (lease) that gives you rights as long as you pay your rent and do not damage the property. To “evict” a tenant is a legal process that involves a paper trail and no situations of legal evictions were ever presented. ● For employees, Kansas law is “employment at will” which means either you (or your employer) can terminate the relationship for any reason. When gays claimed that they “were fearful” because they could be fired at any time, they were ignoring the fact that any of us could be fired at any time for any reason. The only exception is if you have an employment contract or you are being fired for a protected characteristic (race/creed/color) a protection that applies equally to all citizens. ● This amendment's effect on “public accommodations” is a legal nightmare. There is absolutely no religious exemption (for groups that “open their services to the general public”). Multiple court cases attest to faith-based businesses, non-profits, and even church halls being sued for merely asserting their right to make a morally informed decision. But when you “privilege” the LGB lifestyle with a law like this, good honest people lose their right to follow their religious principles. ● In Hutchinson all previous civil rights ordinances were merely codifying what had already been passed on the state and federal level. The Federal Civil Rights Act was passed in 1964, the Kansas Act in 1965, and Hutchinson followed suit with a Housing Ordinance in 1968, and an employment, housing/accommodations ordinance in 1971. To have the city pass a law first (a law that has failed repeatedly at the state and federal level) is backwards. Plus, it is extremely divisive for the community pitting citizen against citizen and distracts city government (and city politics) from important economic development, housing and other needs. ● The small activist group pushing this law, the Kansas Equality Coalition, has shown they are merely ideologues and do not have Hutchinson’s interest in mind. They have been vindictive in speeches, they have smeared and name-called local politicians, they have slandered a local school teacher for quoting from the Bible on Facebook, and they run frivolous candidates for office on their one-note agenda. By voting no we can send a message that Hutchinson does not approve of their “slash-and-burn” political tactics.

11 Reasons to Vote Yes From Vote Yes For Fairness ● This ordinance exempts churches and other religious organizations. They will still be free to discriminate against whomever they want. They will not be required to follow this law. ● The burden of proof for discrimination is on the person who files the complaint. If that person does not make his/her case with the Hutchinson Human Relations Commission, the complaint ends there. ● This ordinance will not cause unnecessary lawsuits. No person can file a lawsuit without first filing a complaint with the Hutchinson Human Relations Commission. ● This ordinance has nothing to do with marriage equality. Kansas has a Constitutional Amendment in place which bans gay marriage. ● The public accommodation clause prevents local businesses from denying service to or discriminating against persons based on their sexual orientation. ● Religion was once used to excuse segregation of blacks and to deny women the right to vote. Many churches allow/accept gay and lesbian leadership in their churches. ● Non-discrimination ordinances are an important part of economic development policies for cities. Large companies who look to relocate include LGB non-discrimination as part of their search criteria. ● This ordinance only affects businesses with six or more paid employees. ● This ordinance only adds protections for lesbian, gay and bisexual people. Transgendered is not included. ● The Hutchinson Human Relations Commission was unanimous in recommending this non-discrimination ordinance to the Hutchinson City Council. ● According to a recent scientific poll, done by a Kansas polling firm, 79 percent of Kansans support workplace and housing protections for gay and lesbian people.

Brigman, who said they didn’t think it was a matter for the council’s consideration. Bush was the swing vote. “I had an opportunity to say ‘No, I don’t want to talk about this’ and spike it then,” Bush said. However, he said he thought it was worth having a community conversation about it. “The way I try to come to every decision is I say to myself ‘what is the best decision for 70 to 80 percent of the community?’ ” Bush said. “I don’t care if it’s housing, sewers or protection issues, whatever. Ten percent are on one side and 10 percent are on the other side. And those two sides are convinced they are absolutely right. The reality is that in most conflict situations, the truth lies in the middle and that’s what most of the community believes.” So Bush proposed a compromise. Protection would be extended only to gays, lesbians and bisexuals. Transgender, which had generated so much opposition in the forums, was left out. Public accommodations also were left out because of the objections of churches. Bush’s compromise, agreed to by Sellers and Proett on June 5, provided only limited protection from being fired or evicted because someone was gay, lesbian or bisexual. It didn’t bar discrimination in hiring, promotions or pay in the workplace or the initial decision on whether to rent property.

“I believe in my heart and soul that no one should be terminated from a job or evicted from a home because of their sexual orientation,” Bush said. “And virtually everybody I’ve talked to agrees, including some pastors who don’t believe it ought to be a protected class but don’t believe in firing someone because of their sexual orientation. I know businessmen who are against a protected class but believe people should not be evicted because of their sexual orientation. But that wasn’t acceptable to the 10 percent on both sides.” Complicated choices Less than two weeks after the council’s vote, the Kansas Family Policy Council and a new affiliated or-

ganization, Awaken Hutchinson, announced they would circulate a petition to ask the council either to repeal the new ordinance or put it to a public vote. Needing only 327 signatures to force the council to act on their petition, the two groups gathered 1,364 signatures over the next two months. The KFPC and Awaken Hutchinson had their religious objections to the ordinance, but they also contended that the ordinance was, as Robert Noland of the KFPC said, “incremental in nature.” If it was allowed to stand, he suggested, the KEC and their allies would try to expand the scope of the limited protections. In the final week of that petition drive, the Kansas NOLAND Equality Coalition’s Hutchinson chapter countered with its own petition drive in favor of an ordinance that would replace the June 5 ordinance with new, full protection in all matters of employment, housing and public accommodations for gays, lesbians and bisexuals. “We felt that if they were going to repeal the whole thing, we needed to do something in turn,”said David Dove, who works in

the advertising department at The Hutchinson News and is the vice chairman of the Kansas Equality Coalition’s Hutchinson chapter. The KEC gathered 644 signatures on its petition. Under state law, a City Council has two options when it receives a certified petition: It can adopt the changes DOVE called for in the petition or it can send it to a public vote. In this case, with rival petitions seeking opposite goals on the same issue, the council’s choices became more complicated. It could adopt one and send another to a public vote or adopt neither and send both to a public vote. But what if confused voters approved both? City Attorney Paul Brown explained a number of possible outcomes, at least two of which would probably land in district court for a judge to interpret. “When I have Paul Brown tell me there are six possible outcomes and several of them will have to be decided by a judge, the level of potential confusion among the voters would be high,” Bush said. “The best thing for the community is not to have people come out of the ballot box confused about what they just voted on.” So Bush again cast a swing vote, this time siding with Razo and Brigman to adopt the opponent’s petition, repealing the limited protections passed on June 5, and sending the broader protections proposed by the KEC’s petition to the public vote on Nov. 6. Nonetheless, Bush said he still wishes they were voting only on the June 5 compromise. “The original issue to vote to repeal would have been a vote simply on the compromise,” he said. “Once you added in the allor-nothing ballot initiative, it changed the entire complexion of the decision making process, and I think it was very unfortunate that happened.”

A ‘stock exemption’ While some questioned the KEC’s strategy in launching the rival petition campaign, Powell said the KEC had to do something. “The opposition was working hard,” he said. “They were literally going door to door to get their petition signed.” Along the way, Powell suggested, the opponents were also spreading misinformation and fear. “My own nephew signed the damn petition based on the information he was given,” Powell said. “That’s pretty sad. They were going to do everything and anything to prevent it. That was made pretty clear.” The KEC, however, made a couple of other strategic decisions in the wording of their proposed ordinance to try to reduce opposition to it. First, they left transgender people out. The possibility that a transgender person who was a biological man would try to use a women’s public bathroom or locker room at a health club had generated intense public opposition at the public forums, allowing proponents to introduce the inflammatory label “bathroom bill” to the debate. Second, the KEC incorporated two clauses of the state anti-discrimination law with the intent to exempt religious and nonprofit fraternal organizations from the law. From the state’s definition of public accommodations, they included a phrase saying “Public accommodations do not include a religious or nonprofit fraternal or social association or corporation.” And from the definition of an unlawful discriminatory act they included a phrase saying “This term shall not apply to a religious or private fraternal and benevolent association or corporation.” The state law doesn’t provide protection from discrimination based on sexual orientation. But the Kansas Human Rights Commission has said that in interpreting the law as it has been applied to discrimination based on race, religion, age, gender, disability and national origin, it has concluded that churches and religious organizations are exempt. “We don’t know how much clearer it can be when we have clearly outlined that they are exempt,” Dove said. “I don’t know why they’re trying to throw a fit about it.” Waggoner calls it a “stock exemption,” common to nondiscrimination laws in other states that have been used, in his judgment, to unfairly attack small business owners like a custom T-shirt maker in Kentucky, a photography business in New Mexico, Catholic Charities in Boston and the Boy Scouts over objections to homosexuality. Waggoner and Noland say statutes have been interpreted elsewhere to exempt churches and religious organizations only to the extent that their activities and facilities are open only to their members. When churches or church facilities, such as a meeting hall, may be rented by the general public, judges have said they fall under the law, Waggoner and Noland say. Ordinance’s chances If there’s one thing both sides agree on, it’s that voters should understand that a yes vote means you support having sexual orientation added as a class protected from discrimination and that a no vote means you oppose it. Few expect the ordinance to pass, especially in light of the fact that seven years ago 79 percent of the Reno County voters supported the constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. “It’s eventually going to happen, and when it does we will all look back and shake our heads at what an embarrassing time this was in Hutchinson’s history,” Powell said. Sellers predicted that the election results will break along generation lines, with most of the opposition coming from older people. “From the people who have contacted me who are under 30, this is not an issue whatsoever,” he said. “It’s an acceptance.” “If people vote this down, it’s not the end of something,” Sellers said. “This issue will come back and in 20 years it won’t an issue in our United States anywhere.

Israeli naval vessels take control of Gaza boat THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JERUSALEM – Israeli troops on Saturday commandeered a Gaza-bound ship that tried to break through Israel’s blockade of the Hamas-ruled seaside strip, the military said. European lawmakers and other pro-Palestinian activists aboard did not resist, and the Finnish-flagged vessel was diverted to an Israeli port. The trip by the ship, Estelle, marked the latest challenge to the air, land and sea embargo of Gaza that Israel imposed after the Islamic militant Hamas group seized the territory in 2007. Israeli officials say they need to enforce the blockade to prevent weapons smuggling. Hamas called for more attempts to break the sea blockade. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement praising the military for enforcing the blockade, said there “is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza” and accused the activists of trying to “to provoke and slander Israel’s name.” “If human rights were really important to these activists they would have sailed for Syria. We will continue to protect our borders,” he said. Six Israeli naval vessels stopped the Estelle when it was about 30 nautical miles from Gaza, and masked soldiers boarder the ship and ordered it to sail to Israel’s Ashdod port, said Victoria Strand, a spokeswoman for the activists.

Hathaway set up his Ulysses practice in 1970 after graduating from Washburn Law School in 1969. He served as both Grant County Attorney and Ulysses City Attorney. Kimball joined him in the practice in 1971. Hathaway would say they had more guts than brains back in the early years, Kimball recalled. “He brought unusual clients into the firm, who

got us into interesting litigation. He didn’t turn anyone away.” Hathaway and Sonja were married for 35 years. They met on a double date while she was teaching in Johnson City and he was practicing law in Ulysses. “He had a Type-A personality and he proceeded to persuade me to marry him,” she said Hathaway worked nonstop even on Saturdays and half-days on Sunday. “He didn’t treat clients as mere file numbers,” Sonja said. “He followed them through life.” For those who were sent to prison, he kept in touch, writing letters, encouraging them onto the right road. During their first year of marriage Sonja wanted to take vacation together for spring break. They ended up heading to Egypt. That opened up 35 years of exotic travel on every continent. “We would study for six months and then travel. We were even in the Antarctic,” she said. Hathaway was one of the founders and served as a president of the High Plains Public Radio Station, KANZ. But he didn’t just sit on the board; he climbed to the top of grain elevators to check on radio signals. “He was quite an advocate of Public Radio,” said Deb Bolton, who served with him on the board. “He was great to have around.” She recalled Hathaway as being very good at getting

the other board members to hold the line. “He approached it from a strict business sense,” Bolton said. An Eagle Scout, Hathaway was exceptionally good with kids, encouraging young boys to work at becoming Eagle Scouts. “Gary didn’t have children of his own, so he spoiled all the boys and girls, great nieces and nephews, and they thoroughly enjoyed it,” his brother, Ken Hathaway said. For a time Ken’s daughter Robin was in law practice with her Uncle Gary. “She was kind of the daughter they never had.” It wasn’t just his friends and family’s children he embraced, but all children. Many an evening meal was scorched or served cold because Hathaway would stop off at the high school on his way home from the office to watch the sports teams practicing. “He loved the kids and he was always talking to them about a certain play at the last game,” Sonja said. During his final days, unconscious, his body shutting down because of infection, he received a card from the entire Ulysses football team. Each player had signed his name. Sonja read the card aloud. “I read every name,” she said. They were the kids he had been watching, supporting and encouraging. “I thought one of those names would make him open his eyes.”

Luxembourg royals tie knot in lavish religious ceremony THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LUXEMBOURG – Under a canopy of soldiers’ drawn swords as church bells tolled, Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg and Belgian Countess Stephanie de Lannoy emerged smiling Saturday from the tiny duchy’s Notre Dame Cathedral after wrapping up a two-day wedding gala with a religious ceremony. Onlookers and well-wishers lined the super-scrubbed streets near the cathedral and roared with joy as the newlyweds looked down from a red velvet-covered palace balcony, and haltingly – but deeply – kissed for the crowd. The church wedding of Prince Guillaume – the 30year-old heir to the throne and Luxembourg’s grand duke-to-be – and the Belgian countess drew top-drawer guest list. It came a day after a civil ceremony at Luxembourg City Hall. The bearded groom and his 28-year-old blonde bride were trailed by a procession of well-known royals, including Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden, Prince Naruhito of Japan, and Britain’s Prince Edward – Queen Elizabeth’s youngest child – and his wife, Sophie.

Luxembourg's Prince Guillaume and Countess Stephanie wave from the balcony of the Royal Palace after their wedding in Luxembourg on Saturday. Stephanie plans to renounce her Belgian citizenship in order to – one day – become Luxembourg’s grand duchess. The tiny country wedged between France, Belgium and Germany is an important financial center and continues to prosper despite Europe’s economic trouble. Stephanie wore a lace Elie Saab dress with a 5-meter-long wedding train during the ceremony, which was conducted in a mixture of French, German and

Nigeria military says sect member at senator’s home THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria – Nigeria’s military arrested a member of the radical Islamist sect Boko Haram at the home of a prominent senator, as ongoing violence blamed on the sect in a nearby city has killed at least 23 people in recent days, officials said. Shuaibu Muhammed Bama had been found “in a serving senator’s home” in Maiduguri on Thursday night, military spokesman Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said. Musa described Bama as a commander who organized

attacks in Bama, a town just southeast of Maiduguri in Borno state. Those living in Nigeria’s Muslim north often take the name of their town or village as a surname. He also is not the first to join Boko Haram from that town. Authorities blamed a Christmas Day car bombing of a Catholic church outside Nigeria’s capital that killed at least 44 people on Habibu Bama, a former soldier from the town. Security forces killed Habibu Bama in June, the sect has said. Musa did not name the senator in his statement.

Luxembourgish. It began with a minute’s silence to honor her late mother, Countess Alix de Lannoy. For the wedding banquet attended by 800 people, Bocuse d’Or-winning chef Lea Linster – herself from Luxembourg – whipped up a buffet medley including Riesling-marinated pork and veal pate, lobster in gelee consomme, and sea bass in salted crust and thyme stuffing; dessert included Madeleine cakes, choux a la creme pastries, and creme brulee. Later in the evening, the royal couple walked through town, shaking hands with well-wishers before a fireworks show. Afterward, they drove off in a limousine with a sign on the back that read “Just Married” in Luxembourgish. The nuptials gave tiny Luxembourg – a founding member of the predecessor of the European Union – a rare moment in the international media spotlight. With a population of just over 500,000, the trilingual duchy punches above its weight: Besides being an important financial center, it’s home to the world’s largest steel manufacturer and it boasts the second-highest gross domestic product per capita in the world, more than $80,000.

Battle fatigue: Voters in key states hit with ads, more THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

RICHMOND, Va. – People who live in battleground states tend to have a number and a coping strategy. Virginian Catherine Caughey’s number is four: Her family recently got four political phone calls in the space of five minutes. Ohioan Charles Montague’s coping mechanism is his TV remote. He pushes the mute button whenever a campaign ad comes on. All the attention that the presidential campaigns are funneling into a small number of hard-fought states comes at a personal price for many voters. The phone rings during a favorite TV show. Traffic snarls when a candidate comes to town. A campaign volunteer turns up on the doorstep during dinner. Bills get buried in a stack of campaign fliers. TV ads spew out mostly negative vibes. The effects are cumulative. “It’s just too much,” says Carmen Medina, of Chester, Va. “It’s becoming a little too overwhelming.” Medina, it should be noted, is an enthusiastic supporter of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. She squealed with joy outside the United Latino Market in Richmond when she learned that Romney had just appeared at a rally across the street. But she’s starting to block phone numbers to Make. The. Calls. Stop. Even Ann Romney, the candidate’s wife, has had enough. “I don’t want to get myself upset so I am not watching television for the moment,” she told the women on ABC’s “The View” on Thursday. “Trust me, the audience members that are in swing states are sick of them,” she said of political ads. Ditto the president. “If you’re sick of hearing me approve this message, believe me, so am I,” Barack Obama said during the Democratic National Convention. The parties speak with pride of their massive ground operations – the door knockers, the phone banks, the campaign signs and more. They trumpet the higher level of activity this year than in 2008. With the campaign now focused on just nine states – Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin – the parties are able to target their resources narrowly. Republicans say they’ve made three times more phone calls and 23 times more door knocks in Ohio than they had by this time in 2008, for example, and nearly six times more phones calls and 11 times more door knocks in Virginia. Democrats don’t give out that level of detail, but describe ambitious outreach activities from their 60-plus field offices in Virginia and 125 in Ohio. The campaigns and independent groups supporting them are expected to pour about $1.1 billion into TV ads this year, the vast majority of it in the most competitive states. The political mailers sometimes come four at a time for Jean Gianfagna of Westlake, Ohio, who says her husband and two grown kids all get their own copies of the same mailer.

Mark Duncan/Associted Press

Jean Gianfagna displays some of the political mailers her family receives at her home in Westlake, Ohio. Gianfagna says her family is “deluged” and sometimes gets four of the same piece at a time – her husband and two grown kids all get their own. But does all of this activity reach a point of diminishing returns? Is there a risk of overkill? Not to David Betras, chairman of the Democratic Party in Ohio’s Mahoning County. He considers himself a field general in the battle to re-elect Obama, and enthusiastically details the party’s efforts on his turf. “Is there a saturation point? I haven’t heard that,” he says. “I think just the opposite. I think people, at least in my neck of the woods, are kind of excited that they’re playing such an important role.” But he does say, “Some people you call and of course they’re burned out with it, and you thank them very much and you move on.” Clearly, more exposure doesn’t always translate into more support. “The more I see Romney, the less I like,” says Kay Martin, who lives in the Denver suburb of Arvada. And if not generating a backlash, some of that political activity is surely just wasted energy. Gwynnen Chervenic, in Alexandria, has taught her kids to yell “lies” any time a political ad comes on. “I’m trying to make sure they develop a healthy skepticism about the election PR process,” she explains. “Makes me laugh every time and should help ease the pain until Election Day.” A Fairfax County woman who’s a strong Romney supporter emails: “I don’t mind telling the Romney campaign or the RNC (Republican National Committee) that I am voting for Romney, but why do I have to tell them that MULTIPLE times?” She’s ready to start giving out a phony phone number. But she doesn’t want to be identified by name – because her husband’s working for the Romney campaign. And, yes, she even went with him recently to knock on doors. “But I was so uncomfort-

able knocking on people’s doors in the evening because I felt like I was doing the very thing that bothers me,” she admits. Political psychologist Stanley Renshon, a professor at City University of New York, said most Americans don’t spend a lot of time thinking about politics,

and don’t particularly like being the focus of too much political attention. But the campaigns just won’t – or can’t –stop reaching out. “They can’t not try to win your vote, even at the risk of alienating your vote,” says Renshon. “You don’t want to regret not doing everything you can do.” John Geer, a political science professor at Vanderbilt University, says it’s the political equivalent of an arms race, and neither side dares stop the carpet bombing. “We don’t know exactly where saturation occurs, but I think we’re way past that,” he says. For those from less competitive states, the number and tone of ads can be jarring. “I think people are just upset about the lies,” says Pamela Ash, a 66-year-old Obama volunteer from Arizona who’s been visiting her brother in Ohio to help the campaign. “Enough already. I just can’t stand it.” Even the people making the calls understand the annoyance. Maria Buzzi estimates that 10 percent to 15 percent of the calls she makes during her volunteer shift at Romney’s Stow, Ohio, offices end with frustrations. “I’ve been called a G-D, Fing B,” the 67-year-old retired nurse and grandmother said. “I’m a sensitive person and they are just vicious. It hurts my feelings and I take it personally. But I really want to help Mitt Romney.” After those tough calls, she hangs up and takes a moment to compose herself. Then she picks up the phone and dials another voter. Maybe one of her calls

will end up in tiny Payson, Utah, about as far from the political front as you can get this year. That’s where Katie Peterson lives. She moved there

from Ohio four years ago. Says Peterson: “Somehow all those people making the phone calls think I still live there and that they need to call all the time.”







The big picture / Travis Morisse

Hidden in plain sight This image of the silhoutte of a Red Admiral butterfly is one that I captured earlier this year. There was a yard in Hutchinson that had hundreds of these butterflies. I was there taking photographs of them and every time I tried to get really close to them, they flew away. I happened to see this butterfly silhoutted against the leaf as I walked through the yard. I have always liked silhouttes and this image is my favorite from the shoot.

Fostering helps couple create family Kindness of helpers ■ Gary and Janice Meyer

have adopted, helped many needy children. BY GORDON D. FIEDLER JR. Associated Press

SALINA– Newly married and childless, Gary and Janice Meyer were dining at Wendy’s when a family of five walked in. “I can remember thinking, why would anybody want three kids?” Janice Meyer said. In her mind, two should be the limit. “Mom gets one; Dad gets one. What’s the third one do?” Fast forward to 2012. The 57-year-olds have seen three times that many children pass through their home in the past 25 years. Unable to conceive – or so they thought – and having repeated setbacks in their attempt to adopt, the Meyers took a different tack. “We decided to try foster care,” Janice Meyer said. One child was followed by another, and then another, and then another. They preferred caring for babies and young children, and their first was a 3-yearold. “It was a very severe case,” Gary Meyer said. “He was enough of a challenge and had enough special

must have been like. “When somebody would come to our house, you know what he showed them? It wasn’t that he had

a bedroom, it wasn’t that he had toys,” Meyer said. The biggest marvel for the youngster was in the kitchen. “We had a refrigerator and there was food in it,” Meyer said. “That’s not uncommon.” The Meyers should know. Since that first experience, they later became foster parents to the child’s 2-yearold brother and, through the years, have fostered a number of special-needs children. But unlike most foster parents whose home is a way station, the Meyers residence became a destination, which, Gary Meyer admits, is not the main goal of the foster care program. “Reintegration is what foster care is all about, if at all possible,” Gary Meyer said. But in some cases, the parents are neither mentally or physically able to care for the children. Their rights are either severed by court order or they relinquish their rights themselves, he said. And that fit with the Meyers emotional makeup. “You get them and you get attached to them,” Janice Meyer said. When their first two foster children were ages 6 and

Cheryl Shelton is thankful for a Hutchinson police officer and a few good Samaritans who turned her bad day around. She was on her way home from the Monster of a Garage Sale Oct. 13 when the battery on her motorized scooter died. She began to push it, stepping over puddles from rains the day before. She stepped too far over one puddle at 11th and Main when her knee buckled and she fell. Drivers of three vehicles who saw her fall quickly stopped and helped her. “They knew I was having trouble getting up,” Shelton said. One even called the Hutchinson Police Department. Officer Garret Leslie arrived and helped Shelton push the scooter to the Hutchinson Public Library at Ninth and Main, where

she waited for assistance. Shelton was impressed at how courteous Leslie was. “He has no idea what he did for me,” she said. Shelton’s scooter’s battery has since been replaced. – Kristen Roderick GCCC logo GARDEN CITY – A big “G” is the new logo for Garden City Community College, replacing a four-letter cube logo used since 1989.

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING How exciting, there are new owners of the local grocery store, Haven Foodliner, and they are local people, Doug and Cindy Nech. Almost 50 years ago we built that store (B & B Superette) and had our grand opening. We later sold it to Ralph and Maybelle Kiker, who then sold it to Jerry Cain. We are proud that those owners carried on a friendly hometown tradition; knowing their customers and offering a nice selection of meats, groceries, produce and other items. With other small towns losing their grocery stores we feel very fortunate to

have such a nice store available for shopping in Haven, as well as the surrounding area. Thanks Jerry for a job well done and good luck to the new owners. BILL and DOROTHY BALDAUF Haven Thank you so very much to everyone who sent cards, called or emailed expressing congratulations on our 60th wedding anniversary. Each message gave us great joy and we appreciated your thoughtfulness. CONRAD and MARLENE WADDLE St. John

7 and adoptable, the Meyers applied. And then the surprise. “We found out Jan was pregnant when we were in the middle of adopting,” Gary Meyer said. Friends asked if they would drop the adoption process now that they were expecting a child of their own. “We never even considered it,” Gary said. In all, the Meyers house has been home to 30 children, some with heart problems and autism. They’ve cared for blind children and children diagnosed with failure to thrive. They’ve had two shaken babies at one time and children suffering from reactive attachment disorder. “They never bonded,” Gary Meyer said, explaining the disorder. “You take a mother on crack or meth, that child needs something and they’re just not there. It can be very severe.” For their involvement as foster and adoptive parents, the Meyers recently received the Angels in Adoption Award, bestowed by 1st District Congressman Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan. One family in each congressional district can be honored with the award, which is sponsored by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute. The Meyers were among recipients who last month attended an official ceremony in Washington, D.C. Janice Meyer said she often recalls that night at Wendy’s and seeing the parents with three children. “When we got down to four one time, we said this is boring.” The Meyers trusted God wouldn’t overburden them. “We would get the children we were meant to have,” Gary Meyer said. “Not everything has been easy or good, but it worked out right.” The Meyers admit they reversed the normal order of parenting. “Most people have children right away,” Gary Meyer said. “By their 40s, they’re free,” Janice Meyer said. “We were just starting,” said Gary, who added that when the children did start coming, the couple were at a more mature and patient age. “We’ll be free when we’re 80,” Janice Meyer said. “Well, we got Leon. We’ll never be free,” Gary Meyer said. Leon is their newest, youngest and, they say, last child they will adopt. He’s 4 1⁄2 and severely handicapped, a victim of shaken baby syndrome. He’s blind, deaf, confined to a wheel chair and requires a feeding tube. According to CAT scans and MRIs, he has nothing on his left side of his brain and less than half on the right, Gary Meyer said. “He’ll be our baby forever,” he said.

Because the only thing missing from our life is sex. I do not know why, and it may be the hectic pace of our lives, but a year ago, you quit making love to me or being responsive to my attempts. I have taken you to dinner and movies, made special time alone, talked with and listened to you about everything. But without fail, every time I try to initiate intimacy, you turn me down. I always feel like some pervert afterward and lay in bed fuming, frustrat-

James Caldwell designed the now-retired logo when he was an art student at the college, Today, he’s an instructor at Halstead High School, the release noted. “When I designed that logo, I tried to visually symbolize the way the college doesn’t quite fit the mold or negative stereotypes of southwest Kansas,” said Caldwell in the release. Caldwell said it was “an honor” to design the old logo, and 23 years “is a long time for a logo to stand,” he said. – Mary Clarkin Seeking Alfalfa info Last Sunday, The News had a story on Carl “Alfalfa” Switzer and his time in Pretty Prairie. It was promoted after a letter from 24year-old Joan L. Collins, who is doing research on the former “Little Rascal.” She says she was drawn to his story from watching the shows as a child. “It was sort of a natural

For that reason, I have found someone else to have sex with. You cannot possibly understand the difference it has made in our relationship. I no longer resent you. I no longer attempt to have sex with you. The other woman and I have no emotional attachment and never will. It is purely physical. I know you would be hurt to find out. But it has made our relationship stable. I no longer dream about leaving

reaction,” Collins said. “His personality really pulled me in. He had a lot of talent and a lot of charisma.” Collins is looking for people to interview for a project she is working on to help tell Alfalfa’s story. She says there is a lot of inaccurate information out there about his life. She is on a quest to squelch rumors and tell his true story. “I don’t really call myself a fan, maybe that sounds crazy ... more like a very big supporter of his. As much as I love him, I feel it’s more than being a fan. I really want to help get this story out there. I’m always out there searching and looking for more ways to search, to find more about him and to find out ways to contact those who knew him.” For those wanting to provide information to Collins about Switzer, contact her at or visit her page on Facebook at Meanwhile, longtime Hutchinson photographer Art Eveland walked into The News this week with a



you. If nothing else, I hope this letter will let you know that my love for you is strong. I simply have a basic need that is getting filled elsewhere. If things change at home, I will leave the other woman for good and never look back. She is not a replacement. I would rather it be you, but until then, please forgive me. – Your Husband Dear Husband: While we cannot approve of your “solution,” we understand it. Men and women who refuse to be intimate run the risk of having their partners seek intimacy outside the relationship. But your wife may be perfectly happy with this arrangement, content to let you have your sexual needs taken care of by someone else, knowing that you are committed to the marriage. If you are hoping this letter convinces her to work on her libido, we wouldn’t count on it. But you have written a sensitive letter that we hope will

picture of Alfalfa – one of the child star’s last portraits ever taken. “I’ll never forget how he paid me,” Eveland said. “He pulled a big roll of bills out of his pocket, which he said was $5,000, and peeled off what he owed me. “He was real friendly, and we had quite a talk. He told me that he really liked to hunt and that he planned on going on a bear hunt up in Alaska and said he would like to take me along to take lots of pictures. Naturally, I was pretty excited, but I never heard from him and it wasn’t long until he was shot out in California. It was quite an experience for me to deal with my favorite ‘Little Rascal’ and to also do a portrait of him.” – Amy Bickel

leave an impression on others. Dear Annie: How long do a bride and groom have to write a thank-you note for a wedding gift? I just received one for a wedding I attended a year ago. For several previous graduation and wedding gifts, I never received any thank-you note at all. Should I just be grateful I got one, even belatedly? Is this new generation changing the rules? – Iowa Dear Iowa: We’re sure people from a generation ago had a similar complaint. A wedding couple should send thank-you notes immediately upon receipt of a gift, but certainly within three months. However, we agree that any written acknowledgement, even a late one, is better than nothing. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “No Name Anywhere,” whose boyfriend won’t part with the clothes of his late wife after three

Pope hopes book brings people to Jesus THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI says he hopes his latest book on Jesus – about his infancy – will help bring people closer to Christ. “Jesus’ Infancy” is due in bookstores by Christmas and is the third in Benedict’s trilogy on the life of Christ. In excerpts released by publisher Rizzoli on Tuesday, Benedict writes in the forward that his aim is to take what is historically known about Jesus from the Gospels of Mark and Luke and interpret their meaning today. He writes: “I hope that this little book, notwithstanding its limits, might help many people in their path toward and with Christ.” The previous two installments, which covered Jesus’

early ministry, and then his death and resurrection, blended theology and history while denouncing such contemporary issues as religiously motivated violence.

A South Hutchinson company that manufactures specialized camera equipment used primarily by medical schools to offer an overhead view of surgical procedures is on the market. Overhead Camera Systems Inc. relocated in December 2000 from Wichita to a 4,000 square-foot building at 3 Williams St. in South Hutchinson. Owner Galen Means, who is preparing to retire, said he’d like to keep the business local. “I really appreciate South Hutchinson and Hutchison,” Means said. “I have really good employees. If the company is sold to an out-of-state company there’s a good chance they’ll want to move it.” The company, founded in 1996, grew from a staff of four up to 10 people before the recession hit in 2008, Means said. It is now back to four. But Means is hoping a pending sale to the

Investors to acquire Fuller Brush Co. assets

Local Salon hits the 30-year mark

GREAT BEND – A tentative agreement has been reached with Victory Park Capital and the nonconsumer business segment of the Fuller Brush Co. and a group of local area investors led by Rick Ball and Norbert Schneider with Innovative Livestock Service Inc. In a separate transaction with the same group of investors, a tentative agreement also was reached with Stagg Industrial Management for all of the manufacturing facilities, office buildings and real estate belonging to the original Fuller Brush Co. “The final closing is several weeks away as there are a few items that need to be jointly resolved,” Ball said. “This overall effort was made possible with the commitment of local investors who care greatly about the Fuller Brush Company remaining a viable employer in the local area communities. Many of these investors were also participants in the 2004 purchase of CPI Qualified Plan Consultants Inc. that helped retain 400-plus jobs for the area communities.” ILS is a privately held Kansas-based corporation dedicated to the development of rural communities and businesses throughout western Kansas and Nebraska, with a strong focus on professional cattle feeding and precision farming. “ILS feels very fortunate to be a part of this new endeavor and strongly believes that it will become a source of job growth in Barton, Pawnee and surrounding counties. It is opportunities like this, that one day, will provide good-paying jobs to entice our area youths to return to rural America,” said Lee Borck, chairman of ILS.

Over the past 30 years, Patricia Brown has seen and adapted to lot of changes in the hair styling industry. Her business, however, has been one constant over the decades. Brown and her shop, The Gallery Styling Salon, 24 W. 26th Ave., will mark 30 years at the same location on Oct. 18. “I bought the building in 1978 and turned it into the beauty salon in 1982,” Brown said. “I started with one girl and myself. Now I have five stations.” The Gallery, in a small white clapboard home converted into a business, was the first salon in Hutchinson to offer booth rentals, Brown said.

Duck Salt intended to be a versatile spice ■ Seasoning’s creator

Matt Deighton jokes he’s working on his third million. “I gave up on my other two,” he laughs. While he doesn’t expect to make millions on this new product, the Greensburg man says the concept that came from the rubble of the tornado that nearly destroyed the town five years

ago is growing a following of customers. Deighton calls it Duck Salt - a product he says his customers are sprinkling on everything from burgers to ice cream. Several days a week, he takes to the road in his old station wagon with his Dalmatian Molly with boxes filled with Duck Salt and the hope to grow his small startup company. Orders are coming in from as far away as a New York City fire crew to a retired couple in Oklahoma. “My passion started when I was in the food business prior to the tornado and

about a year after the big blow I needed something to do in the evenings besides worry about the recovery,” he said. “I started blending spices in my FEMA trailer. Soon I was handing baggies of my blends to other FEMA tenants.” He had his neighbors give him advice on the recipe. He then took the recipe to a kitchen near Kansas City for production. Deighton said he calls it Duck Salt because the name is simple but catchy and represents something used a lot in Greensburg after the tornado – Duct Tape.

“Simple products with simple names seem to become household terminology,” he said. “After the tornado, Duct Tape was a very handy tool to have around. Many times Duct Tape saved the day.” He says he is marketing Duck Salt in much the same way – an item that can replace salt and pepper and can flavor a variety of things, including everyday dinner entrees, popcorn and meats.

Not all shades of pink contribute to the cause BY THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU

October, as everyone must surely know by now, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Store shelves have blossomed with pink as product after product promises to help the cause if you will only give them your shopping dollars. The popularity of pink products is not limited to October, of course. Throughout the year, we are seeing more and more of the trend toward using pink as a marketing tool to lure customers. The Better Business Bureau advises consumers that some of those products that adorn themselves with pink may be only providing very limited help to the fight against breast cancer. Some of them promise significant donations to breast cancer charities and some of them do not. What the pink ribbon means If you are interested in being sure that your money will go to this very worthy cause, the BBB urges you to become acquainted with which products are more likely to be donating to that cause, and which are just using the pink-ribbon craze to increase their sales. Products as diverse as duct tape, fried-chicken buckets, airplanes and handguns have trumpeted their pink appeal to consumers. Some of these products clearly state the amount they are contributing to charities on their packaging. The BBB endorses this method to properly inform consumers

who are interested in supporting the cause. But other products make vague claims. Some even require the consumer to mail in proof of purchase before they will donate to breast cancer charities. Consumers should remember that the pink-ribbon symbol is not regulated by any agency and does not necessarily mean that product combats breast cancer. Some products simply use the pink ribbon to indicate that they are “healthy” and that they aren’t associated with breast cancer as a contributing cause. Some natural health and beauty products fall within this category. Still other companies might put the pink ribbon on their product to signify that that company supports the breast cancer cause, even if their contribution is not tied to the sales of the item bearing the pink-ribbon emblem. One example of that was back in 2010 when a shoe company sold pink-ribbon clogs. While customers may have thought their purchase was furthering the cause, the company had made a set donation of $25,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The purchase of the shoes did not increase the size of the donation. Some companies put an arbitrary cap on their donation to the breast cancer cause. Though proceeds from the sales of the item may go to that cause, once the cap is reached, the donation stops. There is no mechanism for informing the consumer that their pur-

chase happened after that fact. The consumer’s purchase does not go toward the company’s donation. An instance: A major athletic shoe company in 2010 set a limit on their donations to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade of $750,000, and didn’t let their customers know. Customers were led to believe that a portion of that shoe’s sales helped the cause. The truth is, after the limit was reached, sales did not contribute to the fund. Here are tips for responsible pink-ribbon shopping: l Inspect the product for information to see if the label tells how much of sales go to the charity, or specifically where it does go. l Check their website. The product packaging usually gives the website address, and the information about charitable giving may be there. l Call the company and ask for the information. l Contact the charity and ask if they are receiving money from that company. l Check out the charity on the Better Business Bureau’s website. Contact the BBB by calling (800) 856-2417 or visit our website at www.kansasplains.bbb. org with any questions about products that have the pink ribbon on their packaging. Contact Roberta Namee, with the Better Business Bureau of Kansas, at (800) 8562417 or www.kansasplains. or on Facebook.

Obama promotes positive signs in housing market THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Eager to take note of signs of recovery, President Obama is drawing attention to improvements in the housing industry while keeping up pressure on Republicans to back policies the White House says would help struggling homeowners refinance their debts. “One of the heaviest drags on our recovery is getting lighter,” Obama said Saturday

in his radio and Internet address. “Now we have to build on the progress we’ve made and keep moving forward.” Obama cited an increased pace in construction of single-family houses and apartments in September. The Commerce Department said this week that last month’s construction pace was the fastest in more than four years. Home sales are also up compared with last year, though sales dipped in Sep-

tember from August’s twoyear high. With the economy still the dominant issue of the presidential campaign, Obama has been counting on voters believing that conditions are improving. But even indicators that are favorable to Obama still don’t signal a strong recovery. Obama conceded too many mortgage holders are still under water, owing more than their homes are worth.

Several monitors attached to the camera allow large groups of students or other observers to watch live surgical and emergency room procedures, or to record them. The company buys the audio visual carts, but otherwise manufactures the rest of the product on site, machining most of its own parts and then assembling them. It takes about 2 months to assemble a completed product, Means said. The air-conditioned plant includes a machining room, sandblasting room and assembly room, as well as two office large spaces. The plant has to be clean, but not sterile because the equipment doesn’t come in contact with patients. The boom extends out a minimum of 5 feet and up to 10 feet. It will rise to a height of 9 feet. Controls on the cart allow the camera to be swiveled in any direction and the camera to zoom in and out, offering a magnification of up to 38 times. “I don’t have any competition,” Means said. “My only competition has been tight budgets.” Means was formerly an aircraft design engineer at Cessna and a test pilot. “A buddy of mine in charge of the video department at St. Francis in Wichita asked me about the idea of suspending a camera on a telescoping boom over the operating table. I thought it was a fantastic idea. It took about two years to design it and get the bugs worked out.” From the original model, the only significant change was the addition of high definition cameras last year. Means also developed a ceiling mounted model, used primarily by dental schools. There are no patents on the equipment, Means said, because none of the components are original. There are currently 76 of the boom cameras – which retail for $35,000 to $45,000, depending on monitors – in operation worldwide, including the latest camera shipped to the US Navy Mercy Hospital ship in San Diego harbor. “Last we counted, we had products in 13 different categories of medical education, from surgeons to nursing departments to veterinary schools,” Means said. “The product is an excellent visual aid and documentation tool. It has the ability to raise

The University of Indiana told us 84 percent of it’s students had improved GPAs.” The company’s second product is a bone saw Means designed about a year ago. “I was at MD Anderson in Houston delivering a camera and took the guy (who ordered it) to lunch,” Means said. “I asked if he had any brilliant ideas that needed addressed I could put on the market. He said they don’t like the bone saws they have

to buy. The price is outrageous, they overheat so students have to wrap a towel around them to hold them after a few minutes, they make a lot of noise and vibrate, and they weigh about 5 pounds.” Means designed a small handheld saw weighing about 1.5 pounds, which is much quieter and has an oscillating saw blade which cuts down on both vibrations and the amount of dust created when sawing. The saw comes in three models, a 110 volt electric model, a more portable battery operated model and one that offers both.

The Hutchinson News

OPINION Editorial Board JOHN D. MONTGOMERY / Editor-Publisher MARY RINTOUL / Managing Editor JASON PROBST / News Editor PAT SANGIMINO / Sports Editor


Human relations Applicants to commission need to focus on whole, not ordinance he battle over an anti-discrimination ordinance in HutchinT son has resulted in increased awareness of the group that watched over the proceedings involving supporters and opponents of the ordinance. Four Reno County residents are vying for three open positions on the Hutchinson Human Relations Commission, a group that previously has struggled to find residents to fill vacancies on the board. But a revision to the ordinance, which the Hutchinson City Council eventually approved earlier this year to protect gays, lesbians and bisexuals from housing and employment discrimination, put the spotlight clearly on the Human Relations Commission. It acted as a mediator for the city and recommended passage of the measure. Now, three supporters of it and one opponent want membership on the commission. That’s the good news. “This is the first time I can recall we’ve had more applicants than vacancies,” said Meryl Dye, assistant to the city manager and staff liaison to the commission. We presume these four candidates – Jerry Taylor, Kathie Moore, David Dove and Paul Waggoner – are running for the right reasons

and to represent all residents fairly. It is the Human Relations Commission, after all, and the four should keep that broader vision in mind instead of continuing the battle over a single ordinance. Moore, Taylor and Dove all supported the ordinance that made sexual orientation a protected class; Waggoner did not. In fact, Waggoner led an effort to repeal the ordinance, which ultimately will be decided on the Nov. 6 ballot. Discussions that expose varying viewpoints in groups such as the Human Relations Commission are healthy, but eventually the commission needs to come to a consensus so it either can make a recommendation or take the next action step. Sometimes compromise is a necessity. In fact, the Human Relations Commission’s decision not to make recommendations for the three vacancies shows on a smaller scale how division can paralyze a board. The four candidates’ names were passed on to Mayor Dave Razo, who will appoint the new members with consent of council members. No matter whom Razo appoints, the entire commission must keep the “human relations” part of its title uppermost in mind. The city and its residents need fair and open-minded commissioners in order to maintain our march toward a progressive city of the 21st century.

School efficiency If goal is to cut costs, merging of districts should be option big irony of Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s quest to root out A inefficiencies in school spending and direct more dollars to the classroom is his stated opposition to what might be the biggest inefficiency of all – too many school districts. And that seemingly makes school district consolidation off limits for his School Efficiency Task Force when it should be a top focus. The task force is creating plenty of controversy even without consolidation on the table. With partisan politics and combative education interests swirling in the background, Hutchinson’s Ken Willard has his hands full as chairman of the task force. Brownback’s first misstep was assembling a task force stocked full of accountants but without a single school administrator or teacher. He appeared to try to rectify that this week with the addition of Iola schools Superintendent Brian Pekarek. Good move. It is curious why Brownback isn’t interested in looking at school district consolidation. Speculation is that Brownback, who was raised in small-town Parker, is protective of schools in small towns. That is the fear of many whenever the words “school consolidation” are uttered. But that should be differentiated

from school district consolidation, which could happen without a single school building closing its doors. Kansas has 306 school districts, which is about three per county, when Kansas also has way too many counties. Besides that pie chart Brownback is carting around the state showing that only 54 percent of tax dollars to schools are getting into the classroom, he should promote another statistic: Kansas has 3,807 units of government, which ranks fourth-highest per capita in the U.S. Getting into county consolidations could be tricky, but the state clearly has a big stake in the bureaucracy of its public education system. If Brownback’s goal is to reduce administrative costs so more dollars can go into classroom teaching, he’s ignoring the white elephant in the room. The administrative costs that are duplicated by having so many small school districts are an opportunity for savings. Maybe school district consolidation is a whole other task force. But Brownback can hardly get serious about efficiency unless he considers it. Brownback announced the establishment of a website where people can report inefficient spending in the educational system anonymously to the Governor’s School Efficiency Task Force. The website is


Sway me on this election Here we are just days – two weeks and some change – from an election that is supposed to shape our world for the next generation (and beyond), and I still find myself as a card-carrying member of the Six Percent Club. That’s different from being a one-percenter, a class of people that was castigated by the havenots a year ago during that ridiculous Occupy movement. It’s also different from the 47 percent of the public that – even more ridiculous – Mitt Romney said didn’t pay income taxes last year and and thus were seeking a handout from the government. The Six Percent Club is nothing of the sort. We’re not necessarily rich and we’re certainly not all looking for government assistance because of our membership. The long and the short of it is that we just can’t make up our minds. In the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, we make hundreds of decisions – some more mundane than others (paper or plastic?) – every day. Yet, we can’t decide on a presidential candidate to back. Certainly, our membership has dwindled after three debates, but I can honestly say I am still on the fence. I’m one of the remaining few still weighing the evidence, holding out hope that one of these men will wow me. It hasn’t happened yet. So what’s going to tip the scales toward one of them? I have no idea. President Obama has not delivered on his promises from 2008. Granted, he inherited a big bucket of poop – two wars and an economic downturn of epic proportions – from the previous administration. Still, promises are promises. If he couldn’t keep them, he should have never made them. Romney, meanwhile, is a successful businessman, which appeals to me. He probably has the chops to get us out of our financial doldrums, but there is something insincere – a bit too smarmy – about him. His 47 percent claim was ignorant, but at least he never tried to distance himself from it. He never backpedaled. That’s either really bold or incredibly stupid. It’s hard to decide with this guy. And, as a result, I find myself waiting to see what he does next.

Pat Sangimino I’m a registered Democrat, in case you were wondering. That has never driven me during an election. I vote for the man, not the party. I don’t want anything that swings too far to the left or to the right. I want my candidate to be as close to the center as possible, which in this state makes me a bleedingheart liberal to many of you. I care nothing about religion as it relates to the presidency, although, as I write this, I realize I probably couldn’t vote for an atheist. You have to believe in something. The social issues have nothing to do with this, either. Nor does his investment portfolio. Having money is not an indictment, as some might claim. I just want someone put in office who can work with others to solve our economic problems and get us out of the wars in which we never should have gotten involved. Sounds simple, right? The first time I ever registered, I wasted a vote and vowed to never do that again. I put myself down as an Independent, not knowing there was a party bearing that name. Hey, I was 18 years old. What did I know? I equated Independent as someone affiliated with no party, sort of like Notre Dame is in college football. They play whomever they want and answer only to Touchdown Jesus. Sounded like a good plan. Little did I know that the candidate I was forced to back in my first primary election was a fella named John Anderson, who, much to his credit, earned a lot of support with young voters by advertising on FM radio stations that specialized in rock and roll. I even remember his campaign slogan: “A vote for John Anderson is a vote for John Anderson.” It was something right out of WKRP – and I was young and stupid, but not stupid enough to buy into the anti-establishment spiel he was selling. I quickly switched over to the Democrats because, well, I lived in a small coastal town

that was 90 percent blue, and that’s just what you did there. Anderson and candidates of his ilk were quickly off my radar. And it’s probably a good thing the rest of the country backed Ronald Reagan in 1980, because he turned out to be a pretty good president. What ever happened to presidential timber like Reagan? We all know the story. He was an actor by trade, but he learned the political game and this country prospered with him leading it. He was a president who found a way to work with the guys across the aisle. He built consensus, and there was confidence that he would cooperate with other decision makers to get things accomplished – not for the good of his party but for the good of America. When did that change? That might be the crux of my indecision. I have lost faith in a system that puts political party above all else. There is a logjam in Washington these days because of bipartisan politics. As I see it, it doesn’t matter who is put into the Oval Office. The whole system is flawed. Our lawmakers have lost their way. They’ve forgotten why they’re in Washington. And America is suffering because of it. Clearly, Obama can’t work with this Congress. Some might say that’s a good reason to oust him regardless of whether he is responsible for this. That’s a bit harsh. Romney does claim to have a history of building consensus during his time as governor of Massachusetts. At least he says he does. Is that a reason to vote for him? Perhaps. One key to success in any job is the ability to play nicely with others. We are taught that early in life. It hasn’t changed, not even in the office of the world’s most powerful man. I want someone with enough humility to work with others regardless of political affiliation. It should be the No. 1 prerequisite. We have 16 days until I have to make a decision. I can be swayed. So, at the risk of sounding inept, sway me. Help me to decide who deserves my vote. It does matter, right? Pat Sangimino is sports editor of The Hutchinson News. Email:

About quashing race-based college admissions It may be time to say farewell to affirmative action in higher education admissions and to the aspirations that went with it. In October, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, a case challenging the sliver of consideration the university gives to race and ethnicity when deciding whom to admit. It is already being billed as “the case that killed affirmative action.” That may prove true, as the makeup of the Supreme Court has changed considerably since the last time it looked at this heated issue in 2003. Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, now retired, wrote the majority 5-4 ruling in Grutter v. Bollinger, upholding the University of Michigan Law School’s policy of considering race in conjunction with other factors for admissions. O’Connor famously opined that “25 years from now, the use of racial preferences will no longer be necessary to further the interest approved today.” She was 16 years off in that prediction. The court may simply forbid race as a consideration for both state universities and private ones that accept federal funds. Texas automatically accepts the top 10 percent of each of its high schools’ graduating classes. Given the state’s many high schools that are de facto segregated by race, this guarantees a certain measure of diversity. Applicants not in the top 10 percent are selected based on other factors, one of which is race (but only in conjunction with

Mary Sanchez other factors, following Grutter). Abigail Fisher didn’t make the 10 percent cut. Nor was she admitted based on other criteria. She sued, arguing she was denied admission because of her race. By pursuing her case, Fisher and her lawyers are in effect alleging that she was more deserving than at least one nonwhite student admitted to the university. Indeed, the subtext of the backlash against affirmative action and “diversity” is that the white student is always more deserving. But what do we mean by “deserving”? Colleges often weigh race-neutral factors such as socio-economic status, whether a student is the first in their family to attend college, or whether the family moved often during the student’s formative years. Low-income white students from rural areas often benefit equally from such considerations. Who “deserves” the slot in the freshman class more? Who might be the more diligent student? Who will add to the experiences of other students by their unique background? America’s public colleges and universities, after all, are simply reflections of the quality of the nation’s school districts. Hispanic, black and Native American stu-

dents statistically fare worse in elementary and secondary schools, and are often racially isolated in low-income areas. No Child Left Behind has made that case eminently clear with endless data on standardized test performance. Affirmative action was meant to be a way to right old wrongs. “Diversity” is a more recent rationale. An interesting footnote is that the man credited with coining the slogan “A mind is a terrible thing to waste” is also known as the father of affirmative action. Arthur Fletcher was a Republican who served under Nixon, Ford, Reagan and George H.W. Bush. He decried the divisive attitudes that came to surround affirmative action. Fletcher simply wanted to address the inequities that resulted from generations of legalized segregation and accepted discrimination. He helped fund the famous Brown v. Board of Education desegregation case. Segregation ended, but the inequities persist. Fletcher died in 2005, distressed that what he considered his legacy – educational opportunity for all – was in deep disarray. In 2003, he told me, “If they can keep us out of undergraduate and graduate schools, then they have robbed us of the one thing we need to make the system work for us, the opportunity to get an equal and advanced education.” As the court takes up the Texas case, those concerns are as alive as ever.

Library is a success The Hutchinson Public Library is recognized as one of the finest such institutions in the state. The very enhancements such as the Bookworm Brew and the Friendshop that reader Kathie Rogers maligned are what most public libraries in all sizes of cities are including. The sandwiches, water and other items that are sold in the food shop are hardly responsible for promoting obesity. It is great to see people eating lunch while holding a meeting, or reading a book, or just sharing a meal over the lunch hour … at the library! Isn’t it one of our main goals to get folks in the library? “The Friends of the Library is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to advocate for and promote the interest and welfare of the Hutchinson Public Library as a cultural, educational and recreational asset to the city of Hutchinson.” The Friendshop is one of the major sources of income for the Friends. It allows them to make gifts to the HPL to fund author visits, reading programs, to give the funds of $18,000 for the creation of the Quiet Room, among many other projects not in the library’s budget. Yes, a “quiet room” is necessary because people are not wanting a pristine library collection of books on shelves where neither the top nor the bottom shelves are used and where no one speaks out loud. Every library in existence has this problem of the too tall and too low shelves. The mission of a public library is also “to create safe, reliable places where we and our patrons can enjoy, honor, celebrate, and engage with our communities,” which is from New York Public Library mission statement. The Hutchinson Public Library has not failed, but has succeeded in many ways JEANIE ARMOUR President of the Friends of the HPL library board Hutchinson

The second debate

Just vote yes Throughout history people have used religion to condone and codify prejudice. Over time, minorities have won hard-fought victories against prejudice. Federal, state and local laws already prohibit discrimination against common targets – Jews, Catholics, women, blacks, disabled, elderly, etc. Local Christians now stand up for Jesus to defend discrimination against LGBs. For love of God and family, a few pastors have partnered with right-wing politics to produce a misinformation campaign intended to spread falsehoods about the upcoming ballot question for Hutchinson voters. It’s this simple: Should people be free to be LGB without fear of persecution? Vote yes! Should all law-abiding, tax-paying citizens receive the same legal rights and protections? Vote yes! Should Hutchinson’s Human Relations Ordinance extend the same civil rights protections to LGB residents that already exist to protect other minorities? Vote yes! There’s nothing “special” about “equal” rights. Vote yes! JENNIFER VOTH Hutchinson

The great gaffe WASHINGTON – Fight night at Hofstra. The two boxers, confined within a ring of spectators — circling, feinting, taunting, staring each other down – come several times, by my reckoning, no more than one provocation away from actual fisticuffs of the kind that on occasion so delightfully break out in the Taiwanese parliament. Think of it: The Secret Service storming the ring, pinning Mitt Romney to the canvas as Candy Crowley administers the 10 count. The actual outcome was somewhat more pedestrian. President Obama gained a narrow victory on points, as borne out by several flash polls. The margin was small, paling in comparison to Romney’s 52-point victory in the first debate. At Hofstra, Obama emerged from his previous coma to score enough jabs to outweigh Romney’s haymaker, his dazzling takedown of the Obama record when answering a disappointed 2008 Obama voter. That one answer might account for the fact that in two early flash polls, Romney beat Obama on the economy by 18 points in one poll, 31 in the other. That being the overriding issue, the debate is likely to have minimal effect on the dynamics of the race. The one thing Obama’s performance did do is re-energize his demoralized base – the media, in particular. But at a price. The rub for Obama comes, ironically enough, out of Romney’s biggest flub in the debate, the Libya question. That flub kept Romney from winning the evening outright. But Obama’s answer has left him a hostage to fortune. Missed by Romney, missed by the audience, missed by most of the commentariat, it was the biggest gaffe of the entire debate cycle: Substituting unctuousness for argument, Obama declared himself

Charles Krauthammer offended by the suggestion that anyone in his administration, including the U.N. ambassador, would “mislead” the country on Libya. This bluster – unchallenged by Romney – helped Obama slither out of the Libya question unscathed. Unfortunately for Obama, there is one more debate – next week, entirely on foreign policy. The burning issue will be Libya and the scandalous parade of fictions told by this administration to explain away the debacle. No one misled? His U.N. ambassador went on not one but five morning shows to spin a confection that the sacking of the consulate and the murder of four Americans came from a video-motivated demonstration turned ugly: “People gathered outside the embassy and then it grew very violent and those with extremist ties joined the fray and came with heavy weapons.” But there was no gathering. There were no people. There was no fray. It was totally quiet outside the facility until terrorists stormed the compound and killed our ambassador and three others. The video? A complete irrelevance. It was a coordinated, sophisticated terror attack, encouraged, if anything, by Osama bin Laden’s successor, giving orders from Pakistan to avenge the death of a Libyan jihadist. Not wishing to admit that we had just been attacked by al-Qaida affiliates, perhaps answering to the successor of a man on whose grave

Obama and the Democrats have been dancing for months, the administration relentlessly advanced the mob/video tale to distract from the truth. And it wasn’t just his minions who misled the nation. A week after the attack, the president himself, asked by David Letterman about the ambassador’s murder, said it started with a video. False again. Romney will be ready Monday. You are offended by this accusation, Mr. President? The country is offended that your press secretary, your U.N. ambassador and you yourself have repeatedly misled the nation about the origin and nature of the Benghazi attack. The problem wasn’t the video, the problem was policies for which you say you now accept responsibility. Then accept it, Mr. President. You were asked in the last debate why more security was denied our people in Libya despite the fact that they begged for it. You never answered that question, Mr. President. Or will you blame your Secretary of State? Esprit d’escalier (“wit of the staircase”) is the French term for the devastating riposte that one should have given at dinner, but comes up with only on the way out at the bottom of the staircase. It’s Romney’s fortune that he’s invited to one more dinner. If he gets it right this time, Obama’s narrow victory in debate No. 2, salvaged by the mock umbrage that anyone could accuse him of misleading, will cost him dearly. It was a huge gaffe. It is indelibly on the record. It will prove a very expensive expedient. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is

In form, President Obama came back strongly in Tuesday’s debate with Mitt Romney, but substantively he continues to lag behind the Republican candidate. That’s because the president has a record to defend and it isn’t a good one. Television being what it is, the president looked and sounded good, but the air seems to have gone out of his messianic balloon as voters focus more on facts and less on spin. If promises mean anything – and they don’t to most politicians – Romney hit the president where it hurts: on his failure to live up to most of his promises. The president claimed his administration has “created” 5 million jobs. Romney countered that an equal number of jobs have been lost. He also noted correctly that government doesn’t create jobs; the private sector does and because of the uncertainty over the effects of Obamacare and whether tax cuts will be allowed to expire and new ones imposed, businesses are reluctant to hire people. Romney mentioned the promises candidate Obama made in 2008. They included cutting the deficit in half (it has doubled on his watch) and reducing health insurance premiums (Romney claims they have gone up $2,500 per year). Romney said one in six Americans now live in poverty, 47 million are on food stamps, economic growth is where it was when Obama took office and the president’s “apology tour” has not made us safer. The president tried to replay his class warfare script, asking the wealthy to “pay a little bit more” in taxes, but even if all their wealth were seized, it wouldn’t run the government for long. Spending is the problem and Romney missed an opportunity to focus on wasteful spending, as detailed in Republican Sen. Tom Coburn’s new “Waste Book,” which relays in agonizing detail the waste of taxpayer dollars. The president, clearly worried about recent polls showing an erosion of support among women, brought up the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which guarantees, according to the White House, “that victims of pay discrimination can effectively challenge unequal pay.” But even the White House is not immune to claims of dispensing unequal pay. According to a report published in April by the Washington Free Beacon, “the 2011 annual report on White House staff revealed that the median annual salary for female White House employees was 18 percent less than male employees – $60,000 compared to $71,000.” In 2008, Deroy Murdock of the Scripps Howard News Service determined from online Senate salary records posted by the watchdog group LegiStorm, that Sen. Obama paid female staffers in his office “...just 83 cents for every dollar” made by men. The president said he called the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi “acts of terror” in Rose Garden remarks “the day after the attack,” which is true. However, Washington Post factchecker Glenn Kessler wrote that the president did not say “terrorism” in those remarks and that “it took the administration days to concede that it was an ‘act of terrorism’” unrelated to the “Innocence of Muslims” video that he, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice initially and repeatedly claimed incited the attackers. After the debate, moderator Candy Crowley said on CNN, “(the administration) spent two weeks telling us this was about a tape and that there was this riot outside the Benghazi consulate, which there wasn’t.” When voters are considering whether to “fire” a president, they want to know if the one they might hire is up to the job. The first two debates show Romney is up to the job. The final debate on Monday is on foreign policy. It will give Romney an opportunity to close the sale with voters. The president’s record on that subject is no better than his record on the economy. Email Cal Thomas at

Games People Play

’Hawks to be taking back seat for a spell This is why we love high school football, the reason the world – our world, at least – stops each Friday night this time of year. Say what you will, our collective frenzied state has nothing to do with the 56-14 beatdowns that had become so commonplace in recent years around here. We live for compelling, competitive football games and have become savvy enough to understand when those games might be on the horizon. So, with all due respect to Hutchinson High, its decadelong run of excellence and the district championship captured in Friday’s – you guessed it – 56-14 victory over Garden City two nights ago, the Salthawks are not the lead story right now. They will be in the very near future. They always are once the weather turns. But their run to the Kansas Class 6A playoffs was about as predictable as yesterday’s weather forecast. That’s going to change. In two weeks, the fun begins for them. There will be some uncertainty – and plenty of drama – especially when you consider there is a rematch looming on the horizon against Derby. Remember the Panthers? Welcome to another Nebulous November. But before that unfolds, there’s still one more week of meaningful October football and the only way the Salthawks could jump into the lead story is if they were to somehow go out and get stomped next Friday in Maize. Unlikely, right? So we agree, correct? Between now and Hutchinson’s next truly meaningful game, there are a handful of far-bigger contests, all of which figure to push the Salthawks below the fold. No need to worry, guys. We still love you. You’re still the franchise. Just be advised that the stage is set for two seasonending winner-take-all, loserpack-away-their-gear-until-A ugust games next Thursday night. Both are all-RenoCounty affairs (has there ever been a paragraph with more hyphens? Jusswonering). Trinity Catholic travels to Haven, while Nickerson takes on host Buhler.

FORT SCOTT – The Hutchinson Community College defensive players haven’t forgotten the favor the offense did for them in

Garden City. Saturday at Frary Field, the Hutchinson defense returned that favor. With the offense – the passing game in particular – sputtering with a seasonlow 310 yards, the Blue Dragons’ defense had one of their finest games of the season in a 37-14 win against Fort Scott. Not only did Hutchinson hold Fort Scott’s 1,000-yard running back Stanley Hagan

to only 41 yards on 20 carries, but the defense also scored a touchdown and a safety. “We played real well,” defensive lineman Toby Johnson said. “We bailed out the offense like the offense bailed us out all year, like against Garden City.” Hutchinson allowed 49 points and 549 yards to Garden City, but the offense compensated with a recordbreaking night in a 63-49 win.

This time, Hutchinson’s dynamic offense needed a pick-me-up from the defense. “They played really good today, especially for how many snaps they played,” HCC coach Rion Rhoades said. “We had more three-and-outs than usual on offense, but the guys responded.” Hutchinson found a running game in the second half, as running back Terrell Lane

Klein accounts for all seven TDs BY RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The final touchdown pass drew only a slight fist pump from Collin Klein. It was still the third quarter, but MilanPuskar Stadium was half-empty. Most of the West Virginia fans had seen enough of a game that had turned into a Heisman Trophy campaign ad for the Kansas State quarterback. Klein threw for a career-high 323 yards and three touchdowns and ran for four scores as No. 4 Kansas State got little resistance from No. 17 West

Virginia in a 55-14 victory Saturday. The Wildcats (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) made it look easy. Klein completed 19 of 21 passes and added 41 yards rushing. “We all felt comfortable tonight,” he said. “The coaches did a great job of building a game plan and putting us in positions to succeed.” No doubt. The Wildcats scored on their first eight possessions, including seven straight touchdowns. “He doesn’t do anything wrong,” West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen said of Klein. “He’s hard to tackle. He gets them in good plays. He doesn’t turn the ball over. You can say what

you want to about the throwing motion, but it goes exactly where he wants it go. He’s a good football player.” Way too good for West Virginia to stop. It was no surprise the Mountaineers (5-2, 2-2) were awful on defense – it’s been that way all season. For the second straight game, though, Geno Smith and the offense did nothing to keep it close. Smith followed up a clunker at Texas Tech last week with an even worse game, throwing his first two

Quarterback Luke Barnes was harassed most of the game and finished with only 98 passing yards and one touchdown. He was sacked seven times and hit countless others.

No. 10 OU rips KU 52-7 BY JEFF LATZKE AP College Football Writer

NORMAN, Okla. – Landry Jones threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 10 Oklahoma scored on a kickoff return and a punt return in the same game for the first time in school history while clobbering Kansas 52-7 on Saturday night. Justin Brown made up for a lost fumble on his previous punt return by running his next chance back 90 yards and diving at the pylon for the score. Roy Finch then opened the second half with a 100yard runback to stretch the lead to 45-0. The Brown-Finch combo marked the first time the Sooners (5-1, 3-1 Big 12) have had two plays at least 90 yards long in the same game. James Sims scored on a shutout-preventing touchdown run in the fourth quarter for Kansas (1-6, 04), which never presented much of a challenge while losing its 16th straight conference game and 27th out of the last 28. The Sooners’ first-team defense hasn’t given up a point in two straight weeks heading into next Saturday night’s showdown against No. 5 Notre Dame on Owen Field. For their part, Jones and the first-team offense scored on their first six possessions – settling for Michael Hunnicutt’s 37yard field goal on their first drive and then scoring touchdowns on the next five. The streak was finally broken up in the third quarter, after Jones was called for intentional grounding to set up a second-and-26 hole that proved too much to overcome. That ended up being the final series for the starters, who left with a 52-0 lead after just 46 offensive snaps. Brown and Finch helped that total with their unique double dip. Brown provided the Sooners’ first puntreturn score since Ryan

Lady Greenbacks take 4A crown on the Crusaders’ home turf BY LUCAS FAHRER The Hutchinson News

Pratt senior Kaylah Romine considers no lead safe. Even with a healthy advantage at the 4A cross country regional in Hutchinson, the Greenback runner felt the pressure from Ulysses’

Chisholm Branscum, who had also pulled away from the pack. “I’m always afraid I’m going to go too slow,” Romine said. “I just got to the end and I heard the girl Chisholm’s name behind me. I was like, ‘Oh, shoot. I better go.’ ” And go she did. Romine upped her pace and finished in first-place with a 15-

INSIDE More cross country, D2-3 minute, 46.8-second performance in the girls’ four-kilometer run, leading Pratt to a 4A regional crown at the Buhler-hosted tournament. Romine was followed by teammates Ruth Anthony and Nichole Moreland, who

finished eight and 11th respectively, and kept Pratt ahead of second-place Ulysses and third-place Clay Center. “The way I look at it is everyone has the same opportunity and it just all boils down to how much hard work and heart you put into it,” Romine said. “Our team showed that today.” Romine found herself all

alone after the first mile but Branscum had pulled close at the second mile. The Ulysses’ runner never closed the margin enough but still clocked an impressive 15:50.10 as the only other girl runner to finish with a sub15-minute time. Host Buhler didn’t do well enough with either of its teams to qualify for state but

the Crusaders will send senior Trent Horton to the 4A state race in Wamego next Saturday. Horton ran the boys’ fivekilometer race in 17:34.10, finishing in fifth less than a minute off the first-place pace of Andale’s Jacob Wallace (16:36.40).

Oklahoma State rolls past Iowa State No. 3 Florida routs So. Carolina THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


No. 3 Florida lived up to its surprising BCS ranking by thrashing a South Carolina team that appeared to be a contender in the SEC. The Gamecocks gave LSU almost all it could handle in Death Valley last week, and figured to follow up with a good showing in The Swamp. Instead, Loucheiz Purifoy knocked the ball out of South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw’s hands on the first play, and Florida punched it in to start a 44-11 rout. No. 5 Notre Dame 17, BYU 14 – Theo Riddick pounded his way for a career-high 143 yards and Cierre Wood added 114 yards. Riddick had runs of 55 and 27, the two longest rushes of his career, to pace Notre Dame (7-0), which is off to its best start in a decade and has a big game ahead against No. 10 Oklahoma next week. The Cougars (4-4) fell to 0-3 on the road as they surrendered a season-high 270 yards rushing. No. 6 LSU 24, No. 20 Texas A&M 19 – Jeremy Hill rushed for a careerhigh 127 yards and a touchdown, and the sixth-ranked Tigers rallied from an early deficit. Michael Ford also had a touchdown run and Zach Mettenberger threw a TD pass to Kadron Boone for the Tigers (7-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference), who scored 21 points off four Texas A&M turnovers. A&M (5-2, 2-2) outplayed the Tigers for much of the first half and led 12-0, LSU’s largest deficit since the national championship game against Alabama in January. But the Aggies gave away two costly turnovers just before halftime, and Boone’s diving catch in the end zone with 11 seconds left put LSU up 14-12 at the break. Hill finished off A&M with a 47-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Johnny Manziel, A&M’s dual-threat redshirt freshman quarterback, completed 29 of 56 passes for 276 yards, but threw three interceptions and was sacked three times. No. 7 Ohio State 29, Purdue 22, OT – Backup

Kenny Guiton came off the bench in relief of injured Braxton Miller to lead touchdown drives in the final minute of regulation and Carlos Hyde scored on a 1-yard run in in overtime. Purdue (3-4, 0-3 Big Ten) led 22-14 when Ohio State got the ball with just 47 seconds left in regulation. Guiton, inserted when Miller went out with an undisclosed injury, hit Chris Fields on a 2-yard touchdown pass with 3 seconds remaining. Guiton then found freshman Jeff Heuerman on the conversion pass to tie it at 22. Hyde scored on a short plunge for Ohio State (8-0, 40) before Purdue’s Caleb TerBush, who had two TD passes, misfired on four passes in the overtime. No. 14 Clemson 38, Virginia Tech 17 – Tajh Boyd ran for two touchdowns and passed for another and Jonathan Meeks had a 74yard interception return score and the Tigers beat the Hokies for the third straight time. No. 16 Louisville 27, Florida 25 – Louisville’s perfect start appeared to be over before Teddy Bridgewater came up with one more big play. Bridgewater threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Eli Rogers with 1:35 left, and the 16thranked Cardinals (7-0) were off to their best opening to a season since 2006. No. 19 Rutgers 35, Temple 10 – Gary Nova threw four touchdown passes in the second half to keep Rutgers (7-0) undefeated. No. 22 Stanford 21, California 3 – Stepfan Taylor ran for a career-high 189 yards and one touchdown, and Stanford got its third straight Big Game victory. No. 23 Michigan 12, Michigan State 10 – Brendan Gibbons made a 38-yard field goal with 5 seconds left, helping the Wolverines (5-2, 3-0 Big Ten) beat the Spartans (4-4, 1-3) for the first time since 2007 to avoid a school-record, five-game losing streak in the series. No. 24 Boise State 32, UNLV 7 – D.J Harper ran for two touchdowns and a dominating defense added one of their own to help the Broncos to their sixth straight win since an opening loss.

Trinity cross country wins to head to state BY LARRY MORITZ Special to The News

GYPSUM – Before they could think about defending their 2011 state cross country titles next week in Lawrence, Sacred Heart’s Cory Donley and Hillsboro’s Emily Sechrist had to first earn a spot in the Class 3A championships. That didn’t prove to be a problem, as both Donley and Sechrist ran to fairly comfortable victories during the 3A regional meet Saturday at Southeast of Saline High School. The top 10 individuals at each regional automatically qualified for state, as did the top three teams on both the boys and girls side. While the Douglas girls and Hutchinson Trinity boys came away with team titles, the Sacred Heart girls and both Southeast of Saline boys and girls also qualified their teams for the 3A meet Saturday at Rim Rock Farm. Donley, the 3A boys defending champion, won regional with a time of 16:27 and finished 35 seconds in front of runner-up Cordell Goering of Trinity Catholic. “I took out a little faster than I like but you go with the cards you’re dealt,” Donley said. “I gave it all I could with the mistake of going out too fast, but I’ll correct it.” Donley took the lead early in the race and had more than a 10-second advantage after the leaders had finished the first mile in the 5,000-meter race. “I always try to run my race,” said Donley, a Sacred Heart senior. “But when I have a lead like that, I push myself and find the motivation I need.

“I was going for a little faster time, but a win is a win.” Sechrist finished the girls race in 15:31 and had a 26second margin between herself and the next finisher, Klair Gibson of Douglass. Like Donley, Sechrist had the lead before the first mile was complete and never gave it up. “I just wanted to do my best,” said Sechrist, a sophomore at Hillsboro. “No matter what happened, whether I finished first or third, I would have been OK as long as I did my best. “In a race like this I hope to get the lead early, but you never know how the other girls feel. I’m not real sure what my time was, but I’m glad with how it turned out.” The top five individuals on each team are used to determine team scores, with the tiebreaker the best finish by a team’s sixth runner. Sacred Heart’s sixth runner, Ansley Bender, finished 31st, while Haven’s was 38th. “That sixth runner was absolutely the difference,” Sacred Heart coach Brad Dix said. “We tell them and tell them that it could come down to that and so many times it doesn’t come into play. “The strength of our girls team is there is not much drop off between our two through seven runners and that helped us today.” Sacred Heart was led by freshman Alex Elmore, who was one spot behind Stutterheim with a time of 16:36. Sophomore Sarah Vandervoort placed 16th in 17:11. The Knights boys fell just shy of qualifying as a team. Sacred Heart was fourth with 92 points, eight behind Marion in third.

STILLWATER, Okla. – J.W. Walsh threw for 415 yards and a touchdown, and Joseph Randle scored twice and set up another touchdown with a big fourth-quarter run as Oklahoma State beat Iowa State 31-10 on Saturday. Walsh was 32 of 47 in compiling the ninth-highest single-game passing performance in school history. The victory was the 63rd of coach Mike Gundy’s career, moving him past Pat Jones into No. 1 on the school’s all-time list. The Cowboys (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) gained a small measure of revenge on Iowa State (4-3, 1-3), which ended Oklahoma State’s national title chances last year with an upset in double overtime. There was no drama this time – the Cyclones struggled to move the ball after scoring 10 firstquarter points. Randle had 151 yards on 24 carries. His 62-yard gain ear-

ly in the fourth quarter put the Cowboys at the 14-yard line, and Walsh scored three plays later. With leading receivers Isaiah Anderson and Tracy Moore out with injuries, other players came through for Oklahoma State. Charlie Moore had 129 yards on eight catches, including a 74yard touchdown; Blake Jackson had 96 yards on four catches; and Josh Stewart caught 13 passes for 89 yards. Oklahoma State took control of the game in the second quarter, when it held Iowa State to 74 yards of offense and forced five punts. Trailing 10-7 after one quarter, the Cowboys tied it on a 20-yard field goal by Quinn Sharp in the first minute of the second, then went ahead for good one possession later when Moore got behind cornerback Jansen Watson and caught Walsh’s throw in stride for a 74-yard touchdown. Oklahoma State struggled to run consistently, but Walsh

picked up the slack. The defense helped, too, with an interception by Daytawion Lowe setting up the Cowboys at the ISU 44. Randle scored a short time later on a 12-yard run. No. 18 Texas Tech 56, TCU 53, 3 OT – Seth Doege threw seven touchdowns, three in overtime, and Texas Tech won after blowing a late 10-point lead. The gamewinning pass was an 8-yard throw to Alex Torres, which came four plays after Jaden Oberkrom’s school-record sixth field goal had put TCU ahead. Both teams scored touchdowns in the first two overtime periods. TCU (5-2, 2-2), the Big 12 newcomer, has lost consecutive home games for the first time since 1999. After losing the final two home games in 1998, they lost the 1999 season opener at home. Doege completed 30 of 42 passes for 318 yards and Texas Tech (6-1, 3-1) is already bowl eligible a year after its first losing season

K-State ●From Page D1 interceptions of the season and finishing 21 of 32 for 143 yards. The senior has gone from Heisman Trophy frontrunner to long shot in two weeks. “We talked about it all week. Don’t get impatient. Don’t get impatient,” Holgorsen said. “You have the ball a couple of times and you look up there and you’re down 17 points and you start pressing. It’s inevitable. “We’re trying to score 14 points in one play.” Kansas State made it 52-7 with 2:25 left in the third quarter when Klein hit Tyler Lockett over the middle for a 20-yard score. Klein turned toward his sideline and gave a modest shake of his fist before joining his teammates to celebrate. It was the fourth time this season the Wildcats had scored in the 50s. By that point a long line of cars was creeping out of the parking lot. The only section of the stadium that was still filled was covered in KSU purple. “I was certainly pleased with the way that our youngsters approached the ballgame, the preparation for the game and how they traveled,” said Bill Snyder, whose remarkable 21-year, two-act career as Kansas State coach is only missing a national championship. “I was proud of how they kept their focus. We played great.” The optimism and excite-

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein prepares to pass against West Virginia in Morgantown, W.Va., on Saturday. ment that was pumping through Morgantown a couple of weeks ago is gone. In Manhattan, it’s all good, and everything is on the table for Snyder’s team. The Wildcats are the only unbeaten squad in the Big 12. Their quarterback is the Heisman front-runner. And with five games left on the schedule, the Wildcats are serious national title contenders. The first meeting since 1931 of the new Big 12 rivals was so lopsided that by the time it was over it was hard to even remember that it started as a battle for first place in the conference. On one side was Klein, aka Optimus Klein, the Wildcats’ methodical battering ram, whose passes don’t look like much, but usually find their target. On the other side was Smith, the future NFL firstround draft pick with the video game passing statistics.

But Klein got to face West Virginia’s beleaguered defense, which ranks near the bottom of the Big 12 and the country in just about every statistic. With the Mountaineers seemingly determined to at least stop the run early, Klein completed his first seven passes, including a 10-yard touchdown that Lockett made a stretching, toe-dragging catch on in the back corner of the end zone. That made it 10-0 in the first. The K-State running game went to work on the third drive and Klein finished it off with a 1-yard plunge. Klein made it 24-0 on the next Kansas State drive, taking an option keeper 8 yards. That gave him 39 rushing touchdowns over the last two seasons to break an FBS record held by Eric Crouch of Nebraska and Stacey Robinson of Northern Illinois.

since 1992. TCU redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin was 26-of-44 for 332 yards with four TDs and two interceptions. Texas 56, Baylor 50 – Joe Bergeron ran for five touchdowns in another wild one in the Big 12, snapping the Longhorns’ two-game losing skid. Bergeron fell one touchdown short of the school record held by Heisman Trophy-winning running back Ricky Williams. David Ash passed for 274 yards for Texas (5-2, 2-2 Big 12), which overcame another dismal effort by its defense. Baylor’s Nick Florence passed for two touchdowns and ran for two. The Bears (3-3, 0-3) missed a chance to get a third straight win over Texas for the first time in a rivalry dating to 1901. Texas led 42-31 at halftime and the game was on pace to beat the Big 12 record total of 133 points set when Baylor lost 70-63 to West Virginia on Sept. 29.

Tavon Austin finally put a little life back into the sellout crowd when he took the ensuing kickoff back 100 yards for a score with 4:12 left in the first half. The bad news for West Virginia was that it gave the Wildcats more than enough time to get the ball back in the end zone – which they did with another 1-yard dive by Klein. The first-half onslaught went like this for Kansas State: five possessions, 346 yards, four touchdowns and a field goal. The offense was unstoppable and the defense was just as good, holding Smith to 62 yards by flooding the secondary with defenders and getting a pass rush without blitzing much. “I thought our defense played well and played aggressive and pursued the ball,” Snyder said. “We had a relentless pass rush and we got our hands on Geno Smith.” Maybe the pressure of having to score every time he touches the ball has gotten to Smith, too. That trip to New York for the Heisman Trophy presentation, which seemed like a lock after the Mountaineers won at Texas, is now in serious doubt. “This is about as low as it gets,” Smith said. As for Klein and the Wildcats, they will face tougher tests. The gap between the top and the bottom of the Big 12 doesn’t seem all that wide. But they have now won three conference road games, including at Oklahoma.

KU ●From Page D1 Broyles did it in 2009, and it had been an even longer drought on kickoff returns – since DeMarco Murray’s score against Baylor in 2007. Oklahoma improved to 14-0 under coach Bob Stoops in games that immediately follow the Red River Rivalry against Texas. Kansas went with Michael Cummings as its starting quarterback, after he’d been at the helm as the

Jayhawks rallied for 14 straight points and had the ball with a chance to go ahead in the fourth quarter of a 20-14 loss to Oklahoma State last week. He and Dayne Crist, who’d been the starter the rest of the season, were equally ineffective and broke a string in which the Jayhawks had at least been competitive through halftime in each game under first-year coach Charlie Weis. Crist fumbled away an early opportunity for the Jayhawks to keep it interesting, after Brown fumbled

on a punt return and Kansas’ Josh Ford scooped it up at the 11-yard line. Crist was off-target on a first-down swing pass to Tre’ Parmalee, forcing him to fall down with no one around him in the flat, then threw incomplete into the end zone before Tom Wort sacked him and knocked the ball free. Defensive tackle Casey Walker picked it up and rumbled 45 yards to give the Sooners a short field for a drive that finished with Blake Bell’s 1-yard touchdown run for a 17-0 run.

Cummings replaced Crist on the next ill-fated drive, with Brown weaving from left to right and then diving for the pylon on his punt return TD. Cummings then threw an interception to end the Jayhawks’ next possession and create another short field for Oklahoma. A 4-yard touchdown run by Damien Williams and Jones’ 9-yard scoring pass to Sterling Shepard extended the lead to 38-0 by halftime, putting the Sooners well on their way to an eighth straight win in the series.

Bell dealt to D-backs, who Salthawk volleyball just trade Young to Oakland misses out on state trip BY BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer

PHOENIX – Heath Bell became the latest player jettisoned by the Miami Marlins when he was dealt Saturday to the Arizona Diamondbacks, who also acquired infielder Cliff Pennington from the Oakland for outfielder Chris Young. Arizona obtained Pennington and minor league infielder Yordy Cabrera from Oakland for Young and cash, then sent Cabrera to the Miami Marlins for Bell. The Marlins will pay $8 million of the remaining $21 million Bell is owed. Earlier in the day, Arizona exercised a $6.5 million option on closer J.J. Putz. The 35-year-old Bell has 151 saves the past four seasons. He signed a $27 million, three-year contract with Miami last offseason but lost his closer’s job in July. He finished with 19 saves in 27 chances and a 5.09 ERA in in 73 games. After failing to contend in

the first season of their new ballpark, the Marlins traded former NL batting champion Hanley Ramirez to the Los Angeles Dodgers in July and sent pitcher Anibal Sanchez and infielder Omar Infante to the Detroit Tigers. Arizona general manager Kevin Towers said Bell provides a right-handed power arm to help set up Putz and Pennington adds the team experience at shortstop and second base. Towers, who was general manager in San Diego when Bell was the setup man for Trevor Hoffman, believes the pitcher will benefit from a return to the NL West. “I think he’s excited to kind of be able to clean the slate,” Towers said. Bell contract calls for $9 million in each of the next two seasons and includes a $9 million club option for 2015. Miami will pay $1.5 million next year, $3.5 million in 2014 and the $3 million deferred signing bonus he is owed. Young, Arizona’s center

fielder for six seasons, was the odd man out in a crowded outfield with the team expecting young Adam Eaton, called up from Triple-A Reno late this season, to play center and be the Diamondbacks’ leadoff hitter. But Towers said the job is automatically Eaton’s. Gerardo Parra and A.J. Pollock also will compete for the spot. Young will be reunited with Bob Melvin, who was his manager in Arizona. “It caught me off guard a little bit, I’m not going to lie,” Young said. “It’s all settled in a couple hours now. I got an opportunity to talked to Billy (Beane) and got to talk to BoMel. I’m excited to help. It’s a new opportunity, a fresh start for me personally.” Pennington, 28, played in 125 games for the A’s. He had 93 appearances at shortstop but was shifted to second base in last August. A switch hitter, Pennington hit .215 last season, including .168 against left-handers, and had 28 RBIs.

fifth, clocking in at 17 minutes, 39 seconds. Cassie Panek (18:21) followed in ninth place and Emily Moore (18:33) was just two spots behind in 11th. Since Pretty Prairie finished first as team, teammates Kelly McDonald and Maria Panek will also make the trip to the state tourney Oct. 27 in Wamego. They will be joined by their boy counterparts, who captured second place at the

1A tourney. This will be the eighth straight season the Bulldog boys have qualified for the state tournament. Austin Coulter had the fastest time on the team, landing in fifth with an even 19minute run. Corwin Williams (19:22) took ninth, Ian Williams 12th (19:45) and Paul Crum 18th (20:25). Jordan Albright and Seth Williams will also travel to Wamego for the Pretty Prairie boys.

ning with a stress fracture all year and this course was pretty much his downfall,” Torres said, noting the new Hutchinson course’s rough footing. In Buhler’s defense, it would’ve needed an incredible performance to earn one of the top-three spots. Hugoton was dominant, scoring just 46 points with three runners in the top 10 – Patrick Weaver in third, Jacob Martin fourth and Isaac Castro ninth – and five in the top 20. Clay Center had two top-10 runners and three in the top-30 for second place while Ulysses was close behind in third. “We came into today knowing there would be six really tough teams here,” said Torres, whose boys finished in sixth. “We knew, unless we ran our very, very

best, we wouldn’t finish in the top three. “You’re always a little disappointed when you end up sixth and you wanted third, but we knew we were coming into a loaded regional and that’s the way they ran. They ran tough up front and we couldn’t back it up.” Horton, too, said the western Kansas schools were the class of the meet. “I think it was probably one of the tougher (regionals),” Horton said. “You get the western schools like Hugoton and Ulysses and people tend to underestimate them because they’re not very popular, but it shows. They got first and third today and they’ve been contenders the past three to four years.” The Buhler girls were led by Maren Berblinger. Her

Maybe we love this story because it involves to ragsto-riches programs. Two years ago, you would have gotten long odds that either Haven or Nickerson would be in a position to make the playoffs during the last week of the season. Yes, Haven was in this same spot a year ago, but it took a huge upset for that to happen and pulling off upsets in consecutive weeks was not going to happen. On Friday, senior running back Trae Regier snapped a 27-27 tie with a 2yard touchdown run as the clock was winding down to give Haven a victory over Kingman. Mike Self ’s team now finds itself one win away from claiming a Class 3A playoff spot and an over.500 regular season. Who woulda’ thunk it? Meanwhile, Trinity – with a new coach, a new offense and a lot of new faces (namely sophomores) – has continued to win under

coach Brad Hollinger. His Wing T attack may be considered so antiquated, that it is revolutionary. Don’t use Friday’s 33-7 loss to unbeaten Garden Plain as a gauge. The Owls are one of the best in the state – and are poised for a long playoff run. Trinity has had a very good season – the Celtics are 5-3 – and, like Haven, deserve at least on more game. Unfortunately, there’s just one ticket to the dance remaining. And that’s where this gets compelling. As that game unfolds, Buhler will play host to Nickerson, another team that has had a magical season. It lost three players – a lineman, along with Tyler Owen and Sean Rodriquez, perhaps the Panthers’ best player – in Friday’s 72-22 loss to Andale. The hope is that they’re at full strength – or close to it – by Thursday because Nickerson needs to be at its best to play with Buhler. Nickerson coach Max Heinlein knows that. But he also knows he has a senior class that is big enough and feisty enough to play with the Crusaders.

There’s no Cinderella story attached to Buhler. In fact, this has been an enigmatic season for the Crusaders, who have been tagged with three losses after playing one of the toughest schedules in the state. Steve Warner’s team has been resilient in a headscratching way. It has been sporadic offensively. It gives up big plays on defense and has the telltale sign – inconsistency – of a squad that features a lot of young players. But the Crusaders were downright dominant on defense in Friday’s 21-0 victory over Cheney. They limited the Cardinals to just two yards on the ground and a pass defense that has been sieve-like for most of the season picked off three passes in its most impressive defensive showing of the season. The winner of this game, by the way, earns a Tuesdaynight no-expenses-paid trip to Ulysses. Believe it or not, that’s better than the alternative.

BY BRETT MARSHALL Special to The News

GARDEN CITY — When you’re the underdog in an athletic competition, and you have a chance for the knockout punch, you’ve got to deliver. On Saturday in the championship match of the Class 6A sub-state volleyball tournament here, the Hutchinson High School Salthawks came oh-so close to providing that knockout punch to the favorite. The eventual three-set loss to Wichita Northwest, the state’s No. 5-ranked team in 6A was a heartbreaker to be sure. But don’t tell first-year coach Tina Johnson anything about heart – the Salthawks had plenty of it. And it nearly paid off with what would have been their biggest win in more than a decade. The final match shows a 19-25, 25-9, 25-20 triumph for the Grizzlies, who with the win will now advance to Friday’s state tournament in Topeka along with Maize High, the winner of the other sub-state bracket here. Maize produced a 28-26, 25-12 win over host Garden City. On Saturday, though, the Salthawks provided plenty of memories for their firstyear coach. And likely laid the foundation for what Johnson hopes will be even better days ahead. Remember, this is a program that produced just three wins in 2011. They finished the 2012 campaign at .500, 20-20. To put this into further perspective, the Salthawks had won just 11

matches in their previous 104 before this season. Johnson, who had developed a hugely successful program at Hoisington, has now put the HHS program back on the road to recovery. “I thought out kids had it in ’em,” an emotional Johnson said afterward. “I felt if we could get ’em on the rocks in game three, all the pressure would be on them (Northwest). We tipped a couple of balls when we should’ve had big hits. You can’t give a team that good a free ball. Northwest’s a great team, but I felt like we were right there with them.” Leading from the get-go in the first set against Northwest, the Salthawks were up 7-3, extending it to 13-6 before closing the deal at 25-19. “We just had a little bit of an emotional letdown in the second game,” Johnson said of the 25-9 Northwest win. “But a lot of that had to do with Northwest. They were leaving the two deep corners open at the beginning, but then they started covering. Everything we tried, they eventually adjusted to it. They hit with power and they’ve got three strong ones across the front.” In that second set, the Grizzlies were never threatened, leading early and then building it into the 25-9 thumping.

But here is where the Salthawks showed their heart – and their resolve. They were down early, 53 and 9-7 and eventually fell behind by scores of 1612 and 19-13. Just when it appeared Northwest would roll into the state tourney with a 23-18 advantage, Hutch won two of the next three points to trim the deficit to 24-20. A deep hit was out by Hutch and the Grizzlies had survived. “I told the girls if we could get a lead in the third set, they’d fold,” Johnson said of Northwest. “But we just couldn’t get there. It was a battle. These kids were amazing. I would love to have them (seniors) back. We’re young, so we’ve got a bright future. They have the biggest hearts.” To reach that title game, the Salthawks had to survive a tough Dodge City challenge, winning 25-22, 2519, in the semifinals. In the other sub-state bracket of four teams, Maize defeated Garden City in straight sets, rallying for a dramatic 28-26 win in the first set before rolling to a 25-12 victory in the second to clinch its trip to state. The Eagles had trounced Wichita South 25-12, 25-7 in the semis while Garden City easily handled Wichita North 25-10, 25-10.

Ottawa bounces back in 2nd half to top Sterling BY LUCAS FAHRER The Hutchinson News

STERLING – Quarterback Shane Gimzo led Ottawa back from a 14-10 halftime deficit with four second-half touchdown passes – three in the third quarter – and the Braves beat Sterling 38-21 Saturday afternoon at Smisor Stadium. Gimzo, who has become a full-time quarterback this season after splitting time as

a signal-caller and wide receiver earlier in his career, completed 31 of his 42 pass attempts for a career-high 378 yards. Wide out Jon Hilliger was Gimzo’s primary target, hauling in 18 receptions for 213 yards and three touchdowns. Ottawa (5-2 overall, 5-1 in KCAC play) saved itself from a potential letdown by scoring 24-unanswered points between the second and third quarters and outscoring the

Warriors 28-7 after intermission. Sterling (1-6, 1-5) thwarted its upset bid by turning the ball over five times – four via fumbles – and eight penalties. Warrior running back Denton Hudspeth paced all carriers with 117 rushing yards and had 71 yards passing and 18 yards receiving. Kansas Wesleyan 51, Bethel 12: Trey Dallas threw three touchdown passes – one apiece to Albert Gea-

son, Seth Myers and Jeff Roberts – and the Coyotes handed the Threshers their seventh loss of the season. Kansas Wesleyan (5-3, 51) kept itself in a tie atop the conference with Ottawa. Tabor (5-2, 4-1), which was idle since its game with McPherson was canceled, is the only other KCAC team with one loss in conference play. The silver lining for Bethel (0-7, 0-6) was that its 12-point output was its sec-

ond-highest scoring total of the year. Running backs Ben Suchsland and Marquis Sykes had TDs. Saint Mary 45, Southwestern 7: A week after notching an upset win over Friends, Southwestern got a taste of its own medicine. The Spires, known more for their spread passing game, gashed the Moundbuilders for 343 rushing yards. Tailback Evan Hearn had 13 rushes for 125 yards while Torion Amos added 89

yards and a touchdown on nine carries. Saint Mary (3-5, 3-3) evened its conference mark and pulled into a fourthplace tie with Southwestern (4-4, 3-3). Friends 43, Bethany 7: The Falcons jumped out to a 29-0 halftime lead and never looked back against the Swedes. Friends (5-3, 4-2) capitalized off of four turnovers by Bethany (2-6, 1-5), which lost its fifth straight game.

Disappointing teams face off in Week 7 BY BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer

Two of the NFL’s most disappointing teams meet today in Charlotte. And two more of them meet in Cincinnati. The Cowboys head to Carolina having lost three of their last four after an uplifting opening victory at the Giants. Dallas (2-3) had designs on taking charge of the NFC East, especially following the victory in the Meadowlands, but finds itself in last place in the division thanks to bad time management, critical dropped passes and a conference-high nine interceptions off Tony Romo. “We need a victory, bad,” fullback Lawrence Vickers said. “This is very critical to get this win.” Carolina (1-4) didn’t have such high expectations, but the Panthers expected to build off Cam Newton’s Offensive Rookie of the Year campaign and at least be in the mix in the NFC South. Instead – and even with New Orleans and Tampa Bay struggling – the Panthers are an also-ran, ranked 23rd in yards gained and 25th in points scored; in 2011 they finished seventh in total offense and fifth in points scored. “This team relies heavily on this offense, and that’s been different than in years past,” receiver Steve Smith said. “And yet we haven’t done anything consistently that would help our defense stay off the field. All we’ve done is kind of been middling around a little bit and been real lethargic and left (the defense) out there on the field

HCC ●From Page D1 “They did what a lot of teams can’t do, and that’s stop the run,” wide receiver Kody Cook said. “But we finally figured it out and moved the ball a little bit, but give credit to them.” Hutchinson’s first drive gave a hint of things to come. On fourth-and-1 from the Fort Scott 37-yard line, the Blue Dragons were called for a false start, forcing them to punt after three offensive plays. Hutchinson’s special teams – which had an upand-down day – came up with the first score after Fort Scott’s first possession. Cook blocked a punt, and LaQua Mayes collected the ball and ran untouched 25 yards to the end zone. That was about the only bright spot for Hutchinson in a quarter Fort Scott dominated. The Greyhounds (35, 3-4 Jayhawk Conference) had 109 yards of offense while holding Hutchinson to 18. Yet, the score was only tied 7-7, as quarterback Jordan Owen had an 11-yard TD pass to Courtney Ward. “I give a lot of credit to Fort Scott,” Rhoades said. “Their pass rush was effective, and they had a lot of sacks in coverage too.” Hutchinson (7-1, 6-0) reclaimed a 13-7 lead with its best pass play of the day. Barnes tossed the ball right to Lane, who fired 22 yards to the end zone, and Cook made a spectacular onehanded, over-the-shoulder catch. “We worked on it all week,” Cook said. “Their defense flies fast and hard, and we took advantage of how they play defense. We caught them.” The defense soon came up with its first points in four games. After a Hutchinson punt was downed inches from the Fort Scott goal

longer than they should be.” The Steelers can’t be accused of that; their offense has been very protective of the ball (only four turnovers) and quite productive through the air, ranking seventh in yards passing. But Pittsburgh (2-3) has the appearance of a team in transition, particularly on the offensive line and everywhere on defense, where injuries have been damaging – star safety Troy Polamalu won’t play Sunday night. “It comes down to playmaking,” coach Mike Tomlin said, “and we haven’t made enough significant plays.” When they head to Cincinnati (3-3), the Steelers will find an AFC North rival that is reeling. The Bengals flopped against Miami at home, then in Cleveland, handing the Browns their first win. Their big-play defense has yet to materialize. “It’s not time to jump ship,” offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “We’re 3-3 just like everybody else in our conference. At the end of the day, it’s not about wins and losses, it’s about who makes the playoffs. Our goals are all still right there in front of us. Somebody that’s 3-3 has to go win some games and get in the playoffs. Why not be us?” Also today, it’s Tennessee at Buffalo, Baltimore at Houston, Arizona at Minnesota, the New York Jets at New England, Washington at the New York Giants, Green Bay at St. Louis, New Orleans at Tampa Bay, Cleveland at Indianapolis, and Jacksonville at Oakland.

line, Hagan didn’t come close to getting out of the end zone, as Kenny Flowers wrapped him up for a safety. But that would be the final points of the first half, as Hutchinson led 15-7. Hutchinson and Fort Scott traded punts for most of the third quarter before the Blue Dragons put the game away with 14 points in 75 seconds. Lane capped a personal three-play, 42-yard drive by scoring from two yards out. Then linebacker De’Vondre Campbell picked up the defense’s second score of the day, snaring one of four Jordan interceptions and returning it 34 yards for a touchdown. “When we watched film, we saw that (Jordan) gets rattled easy,” Campbell said. “We pressured him. We sent pressure and got a lot of pressure, and we let our (defensive backs) make plays.” Fort Scott cut the deficit to 29-14 when Hagan threw a 36-yard TD pass to Terrence Hoskin early in the fourth quarter. Hutchinson answered when Barnes – after being under pressure all game – coolly stepped away from four Greyhounds and floated a 13-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Miguel Johns. While Fort Scott passed for 211 yards, Jordan hit only 19 of 48 passes. The Greyhounds’ 259 yards marked the fifth straight Hutch opponent to have fewer than 260 yards. “We did what we were supposed to do,” said linebacker Antonio Longino, who had another strong game with eight tackles. “We didn’t want coach on our butts after the game. When we keep him quiet after the game, we know we’re doing good.” The win guaranteed Hutchinson a home Region 6 semifinal game, and the Blue Dragons go for their first conference title since 1995 in a week when they play host to Butler.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. crosses the finish line to win the NASCAR Nationwide Series auto race at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., on Saturday.

Stenhouse steals Nationwide race at Kansas BY JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rallied from two laps down at Kansas Speedway to salvage his points day. Then he stole a win, as well. Stenhouse, the defending Nationwide Series champion, lucked into his sixth win of the season Saturday when leader Kyle Busch ran out gas heading into the final turn. A late caution extended the race by six laps, and it ran the fuel tanks dry of several cars at the front of the field. Not Stenhouse, though. Because he ran into Joey Logano early into the race, dropping him two laps down during his stops for repairs, he was on a different pit sequence and had plenty of gas to make it to the end. So he liked his chances when he lined up fifth on the final restart. As the field prepared to take the green, Sam Hornish Jr. ran out of gas and NASCAR called off the start. It tacked on yet another lap, and that cost Paul Menard, who led a race-high 110 laps but ran out of gas as the field took the green. Busch, who was seeking his first Nationwide win of the season and first in his Kyle Busch Motorsports entry, was the leader on the restart and jumped out to a comfortable lead. But his tank ran dry as he exited the third turn, and Stenhouse cruised past for the improbable victory. “I saw Kyle and he was really shaking it down the back straightaway trying to make sure it had a lot of fuel and I thought it was good to go,” Stenhouse said. “But right in the center it ran out and I was able to sneak by him on the outside and get the win. That was exciting.”

Stenhouse Jr. holds the trophy in victory lane. The win tightened up the Nationwide championship race, too. Stenhouse was 13 points behind leader Elliott Sadler at the start of the race, but cut it to six points with three races remaining. “We knew we had to do that. I didn’t see the win coming like this but I felt we had a car that was capable of winning before we got in the mess there with (Logano),” Stenhouse said. “We know we need to win races and if we win the rest we will win the championship no matter what. We have good tracks coming up for us and we are looking forward to getting to them.” Austin Dillon finished second to clinch the manufacturer championship for Chevrolet. Logano wound up third, and was still smarting from the early contact with Stenhouse. He made a point to

rub against Stenhouse’s car on the cool-down lap to show his displeasure. “I just got put in the fence,” Logano said. “It’s just a little early in the race for fencing each other.” Stenhouse was trying to clean debris off his grille when he ran into Logano, and Stenhouse team owner Jack Roush assessed it as “from what I saw was 100 percent Ricky’s fault.” Stenhouse figured the race was ruined at the time, and focused on getting as many points as possible. “I thought the race was over for us. I thought I had killed it for us,” Stenhouse said. “I knew we would try to salvage as many points as we could. To be honest I was thinking top-15 and to try to get back one lap down and it was one thing at a time and we were able to do that.” Sadler was fourth, and like teammate Dillon had to made a late pit stop for gas to avoid running out of fuel. “All the fuel mileage and strategy, sometimes you just end up on the wrong side of it,” said Sadler. “That last caution just killed us and took a lot of points from us. Thought we managed it the best we could. Running for a championship, we had to pit and give up track position to make it to the end.” Cole Whitt was fifth and followed by Busch, who has won a Nationwide race every year since 2004 but has only three chances left to keep his streak active. “That’s our year, man. Nothing else to it than that,” said Busch, who led 29 laps. “What a frustrating defeat. Oh, well. You get defeated sometimes.” Justin Allgaier was seventh, Michael Annett eighth, Hornish ninth and Danica Patrick rounded out the top 10 – her third top-10 finish of the season.

OUTDOORS Whitetail deer Wh By Jim Heck

Deer facts Market gunning, unregulated hunting and poor land-use practices severely depressed deer populations in the early 1900s. By about 1930 the U.S. population was thought to number about 300,000 animals. Recent estimates put the population in the United States at around 30 million animals, making the whitetail the most abundant big-game animal in North America. Whitetail deer have a top running speed of 35 to 40 miles per hour. Deer also swim well and at a good pace. They have been clocked at speeds up to 13 miles per hour. Whitetails have an average life span of 8 to 11 years. There is one authenticated record of a deer kept in captivity that lived to be 19 years old. A whitetail buck usually weighs 130 to 220 pounds, but they have been recorded at well over 350 pounds. The largest body weight on record of a whitetail deer is 511 pounds. A deer can clear an 8-foot hurdle from a standing position. The members of the deer family are ruminants, having a four-compartment stomach, which allows the deer to feed very rapidly. Deer need 10 to 12 pounds of food per day to satisfy their needs.

A doe giving birth in areas of good food will have twins. However, triplets are common, as well as occasional quadruplets. At birth a baby doe weighs about 4½ pounds, while a buck weighs 5½ pounds. By the time the fawns are 20 minutes old, they can walk slowly on very shaky legs. The speed at which antlers grow makes them the fastest growing structures in the animal kingdom. Antler growth is usually complete by the end of August.

Fawns’ jaws are small and have only four teeth. Deer usually replace their “baby teeth” with permanent teeth by about two years of age.

Tail has a white underside. It is flipped upward and shows when the deer runs.

Backyard Nature

Deer-stand days are here again BY JASON PROBST The Hutchinson News

Autumn might mean a lot of things for different people, but for many in Central Kansas, late October and November are measured not by falling leaves, but by the number of hours spent in a tree stand. Kansas boasts some of the best whitetail populations in the country, which has gained the attention of nationally televised hunting shows, as well as regional and national publications. Additionally, Gov. Sam Brownback recognized the value of Kansas’ natural hunting resources as a tourist attraction and realigned the state tourism department to fall under the auspices of Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. Kansas’ mixture of cropland and timber provides excellent habitat for deer, and the state is known for its trophy bucks – consistently ranking in the top 10 states in the Boone and Crockett club. The state is home to whitetail and mule deer, with mule deer largely limited to the western third of Kansas. The state record typical mule deer for firearms was taken by

Bryan Morehead of Greensburg with a score of 202 2/8. The non-typical firearm mule deer record was taken by Lee Odle, of Stockton, with a score of 260 6/8. The mule deer typical archery record is held by Carl Ghan Jr., of Scott City, with a score of 202 6/8; the non-typical mule deer archery record is held by Dean Hamilton, of Healy, with a score of 269 0/8. For typical whitetails, the firearm record is 198 2/8, held by Dennis Finger of Netawaka. The non-typical record is held by Joseph Waters, of Topeka, with a score of 280 4/8. The typical archery record is held by Brad Henry of Topeka, with a 193 7/8 score; the non-typical record is held by Dale Larson, of Olsburg, with a score of 267 7/8. The deer hunting season began in September, with a youth season. Currently, archery hunting is in full swing – beginning on Sept. 17 and ending on Dec. 31. For the


past several years, KDWPT has made several changes to make hunting more accessible and less costly, including a special anterless-only season from Jan. 1 to Jan. 13. Deer tags also can be transferred between seasons for no additional fee, which allows an archery hunter to fill his or her tag with a rifle during the regular firearms season. New for this year is the ability for some hunters to use a crossbow. During the archery season, crossbows with at least 125 pounds of draw and 16-inch bolts can be used by disabled hunters, children under 16 with a valid youth permit, and those over the age of 55. There’s no shortage of information about deer hunting techniques or tips – and for all that’s available online, on television, and on in niche publications, new hunters can find a wealth of knowledge in their own backyards, simply by visiting with longtime hunters who generally aren’t shy about sharing their knowledge and experience. For more information about Kansas deer hunting, visit news/Hunting/Big-Game-Information/Deer.






By the time a deer is 2½ years old, all permanent teeth are in. At this stage, estimating age is based largely on the rate of tooth wear.











Diet and soil types may accelerate tooth wear, but generally, estimating the age of adult deer is straightforward until they reach age 5½. Beyond that, estimating age by tooth wear is less reliable.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – An endangered fish characterized by a long, high sharp-edged hump behind its head had been considered extinct from Grand Canyon National Park until researchers sampling for it in the lower part of the canyon caught one last week out of the Colorado River. The catch marked the first documentation of the razorback sucker in the Grand Canyon in more than 20 years. It’s an event, for sure. It’s something that people are interested in, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation biologist Mark McKinstry told the Arizona Daily Sun. The researchers had been using electricity to stun fish for short periods of time and sampling what floated to the top. The razorback sucker was one of the biggest suckers in North America at 3 feet in length. – From staff, wire reports
