Heading into the world 50



PRATT – An ongoing legal battle over an underground gas storage field in south-central Kansas has moved into a new phase as state regulators consider whether to allow creation of several deep saltwater injection wells in an effort to halt the migration of stored gas. Nearly 50 people attended a hearing in Pratt this week, hosted by the Kansas DepartPratt 281 County ment of Health 61 and Environ54 Pratt ment on an application by Northern Natural Gas to develKANSAS op the wells, Pratt County which will draw Hutchinson saltwater from Dodge City one geologic zone and pump it into another. The idea, said Mike Cochran, chief of the geology section in the Bureau of Water in KDHE’s Division of Environment, is to create a barrier that will stop the movement of gas and potentially, eventually, push accumulated gas back toward the original storage area.

WINDTHORST – There are no stores and only a few homes along the wide Main Street. Windthorst never had much of a business district. The post office closed at the

turn of the 20th century. The old school, which closed as a high school in 1970, burned about a decade ago and the gymnasium – where standout athletes took to the hardwood – was torn down in recent years. Yet, from several miles away, the steeple of a church emerges on the nearly treeless prairie – one

It hasn’t been a parish church since 1997 – when the Catholic Diocese of Dodge City closed it largely because of a shortage of priests.

He arrived Saturday evening at Newark Liberty International Airport and was whisked to New York City, where he will be staying. Dressed in a white shirt and khaki pants and using crutches, his right leg in a cast, Chen was greeted with cheers when he arrived at the apartment in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village where he will live with his family.

Obama sees ‘emerging consensus’ at G-8 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CAMP DAVID, Md. – Confronting an economic crisis that threatens them all, President Barack Obama and leaders of other world powers on Saturday declared that their governments must both spark growth and cut the debt that has crippled the European continent and put investors worldwide on edge. “There’s now an emerging consensus that more must be done to promote growth and job creation right now,” Obama proclaimed after hosting unprecedented economic talks at Camp David, his secluded and highly secure mountaintop retreat. Seeking a second term amid hard economic times, Obama hailed a debate heading in the direction he likes, with nations now talking of ways to spark their economies instead of just slashing spending. Yet there were no bold prescriptions at hand. Instead, leaders seemed intent on trying to inspire confidence by agreeing on a broad strategy no matter their differences. With all of them facing their own difficult political realities, they built some sovereign wiggle room into their pledge to take all necessary steps, saying “the right measures are not the same for each of us.” Obama played international host as Europe’s debt crisis threatens to drag down the U.S. recovery and his own political future, underscoring the stakes for him in getting allies abroad to rally around some answers. Much of the new emphasis on government-led growth seemed aimed at German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who came to the summit as the European leader who had demanded austerity as the most important step toward easing the eurozone’s debt crisis. But the election of Socialist Francois Hollande as president of France, and Greek elections that created political chaos in the country were clear rejections of the belt-tightening Merkel represented. Hollande, a new voice at the table in just his first week on the job, offered Obama a reminder of his own re-

Bomb kills 1 student, wounds 7 in Italy ROME – A bomb exploded outside an Italian high school named after the wife of an assassinated antiMafia prosecutor, killing one student and wounding at least seven others, officials said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, and police were trying to determine who had planted the bomb at the Francesca Laura Morvillo Falcone vocational institute. But an anti-Mafia prosecutor said it didn’t appear to be the kind of attack that organized crime has carried out in Italy. The bombing also followed a spate of attacks against Italian officials and buildings by a group of anarchists.

World leaders attend the first working session of the G-8 Summit at Camp David, Md. From left are French President Francois Hollande, U.S. President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron and Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev. sponsibilities to work to expand the economy, “even if he’s in an electoral period and who has a Congress that’s not necessarily easy to deal with.” Coping with shaky oil markets, the leaders set the stage for a united release of world oil reserves to balance any disruption in world markets when tough new sanctions are imposed on Iran’s exports because of its disputed nuclear program. The leaders said they were ready to take “appropriate action” to meet any shortages. The mere preparation to release oil reserves could help calm markets and ensure that oil prices, which have been dropping, don’t climb again and anger consumers as U.S. elections approach. The Group of Eight summit includes leaders of the United States, Japan, Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Canada and Russia. A joint summit statement reflected how urgently the countries must contain a financial crisis that could spread from the eurozone to the United States and infect the rest of the global economy. They declared unanimity in ensuring that Greece, which is crippled in debt and politically gridlocked, remains as part of the 17-member euro currency union. “The leaders here understand the stakes,” Obama said in summing up a

packed, unusually intimate day of world talks. “They know the magnitude of the choices they have to make and the enormous political and economic and social costs if they don’t.” Merkel said growth and deficit-cutting reinforced each other and that everyone

around the table agreed. “That is great progress,” she said. As for promoting growth, she said investments under consideration include research and development, Internet networks and infrastructure. But she said “this doesn’t mean stimulus in the usual sense.”

Tornadoes, hail cause damage in Harper and Harvey counties BY THE NEWS STAFF

Terrie Huntington, right, a Fairway Republican, during a break in the Senate’s work Saturday at the Statehouse in Topeka.

The tornadoes dropped down in the county between 5:30 and 7 p.m., knocking down power poles and causing heavy tree damage, he said.

Kansas lawmakers unable Land to find smaller tax cut plan

TOPEKA – Kansas was headed toward huge income tax cuts after conservative Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and the state Senate’s moderate GOP leaders couldn’t agree Saturday on lesser reductions to head off what some lawmakers feared would be a budget disaster. Brownback and his allies believe that the state’s economy will get a big, jobs-creating boost from legislation already on his desk to cut individual income tax rates for 2013 and eliminate income taxes for 191,000 businesses. But they were willing to consider phasing in the cuts over six years to create what Brownback called “an easier glide path.” Legislative leaders said Saturday morning that the tax debate was over and the most aggressive income tax cuts would stand. Hours later, discussions with Brownback’s office resumed but, then, almost as quickly, they ended without a deal, and the governor left the Statehouse. “We’re not involved in any conversations at this point,” Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag said. Lawmakers still had to complete a $14 billion budget for the next fiscal year to end their session, which was in its 98th day Saturday, eight more than scheduled. Legislators expected to leave another big task – redrawing political boundaries to reflect population shifts over the past decade – to a federal court. Jones-Sontag said Brownback will have a ceremony Monday in Wichita to sign the conservative-backed tax cuts on his desk, which would be coupled with a

Morris and his fellow GOP moderates haven’t agreed with conservative Republican Gov. Sam Brownback on cutting income taxes. sales tax reduction already planned for next year. The package is expected to provide $231 million in tax relief during the fiscal year that begins July 1, and the annual figure grows to $934 million in six years. The Legislature’s research staff has projected that the cuts will lead to a budget shortfall by July 2014 and that the gap would balloon to nearly $2.5 billion by July 2018 if unchecked. But during a meeting of House Republicans, Brownback called their passage “a phenomenal accomplishment.” “This will be a very aggressive pro-growth package,” he told reporters afterward. “For small business, which is your primary job-creating machine, this will have a very dynamic growth effect,” he said.

The Senate blocked debate Friday on a proposal to phase in the same income tax cuts awaiting Brownback’s signature. The less aggressive plan had emerged, with the governor’s encouragement, from negotiations. Democrats and GOP moderates in the Senate still thought it would cause budget problems, despite projections from the Legislature’s staff forecasting budget surpluses at least through mid2018. Jones-Sontag said Brownback’s office offered a “global” agreement for senators providing additional money for public schools and even resolving redistricting issues – if senators accepted the phased-in tax cuts that they had refused to debate Friday. “Some of our senators tried to negotiate a less dramatic tax cut,” said Senate President Steve Morris, a moderate Hugoton Republican. “Evidently, the governor wasn’t interested.” The next fiscal year’s budget didn’t need much more tightening, because the state expects to have adequate cash reserves to cover the more aggressive tax cuts now on Brownback’s desk. But next year, legislators would be forced to close a budget shortfall, absent the robust growth predicted by supporters of the tax cuts. “The state is going to be facing enormous deficits during the next several years,” House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, said during a news conference. “Everybody who is interested in the schools and social services and the transportation program and public safety needs to prepare for very significant cuts in the next couple of years.”

ficials hoped the measure would pass during this session. Legislators, moving toward adjournment, were putting in long hours Saturday. As of Saturday night, the Senate had not yet taken action on the on the Reno County jail bill. Reno County would buy the land only if voters approved the April ballot.

Meanwhile 38 graduates proceeded into the gymnasium at Trinity Catholic High School, followed by faculty, local priests and The Most Rev. Bishop Michael Jackels of the Diocese of Wichita. As the ceremony was about to begin, senior Jason Banning faced a slight delay, but he didn’t lose his cool. He stood at the podium prepared to read the scripture. However, there was no Bible. “This is a first,” said Joe Hammersmith, principal, after a Bible was retrieved from somewhere in the building. At least the crowd in the gymnasium waited in air conditioned comfort, he added. Jackels told the students

while it was their day, it wouldn’t have been made possible without the help of family who carried out the commitment at their baptism to help form them as followers of Jesus. At Trinity they were taught to know God. “The greater the knowledge the greater the chance of love,” Jackels said. A Catholic school education is a lesson in hope, he said, adding that no one can make someone love God, but through education it’s hoped the graduates would. Now as they headed into the world as “future leaders, voters, butchers, bakers and candlestick makers,” Jackels said he hoped their faith would guide their decision making. “In a world that is dark and insipid,” he told the graduates they would be the light of the earth. “We would appreciate it if you would make the world a bet-

Out of the Kansas prairie Far removed from a town Stands a lofty pinnacled structure Well worthy of renown For it speaks of the hopes of people Unswerving, devoted and true; The spirit to live, to toil, to give And a faith all needs to renew. Once lately, I stood near its portal, Admiring it from the street When a snowy dove alighted On the stand at the Virgin’s feet At the base of the white marble statue It rested as though to give A message of peace to a tired heart, An ideal for which to live. Charlotte Mofatt-Kinsley, Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish – Windthorst, Kansas centennial book, 1978.

●From Page A1 The men went on behalf of the German Catholic Aurora Homestead Association of Cincinnati to inspect land for a new community. They first traveled to Arkansas before journeying to southwest Kansas where they found the area of Ford County to be more to their liking. The new German Catholic colony was in an area of wide-open prairie with plenty of buffalo grass. It had fertile soil and a good, plentiful water supply, according to the Windthorst centennial book published in 1978. The association bought 10 sections of land from the Santa Fe Railroad, which planned to extend a line through the area, for $10 dollars an acre. They named their settlement after Ludvig Von Windthorst – a Catholic leader in Germany. In February 1878, seven families and three single men left Ohio for the settlement. More soon would follow, according to the book. However, the railroad never came. As a result, not much of a business district was ever developed in Windthorst. However, these steadfast German Catholics continued to form a community centered on their faith. No church was built immediately because times were tough and money was scarce. Mass was held in a home once a month. However, by spring 1879, the Windthorst pioneers built a small church with the first mass celebrated by 96 families that Easter. They named the original church St. Francis Parish, but it changed to Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in the early 1880s. Eventually, the congregation built a school, as well, in 1883. Hattrup said there was a store, too, for a time. There also was a creamery not far from the town site, which, he said, also had the post office from 1898 to 1905. Despite the town’s small size, the congregation continued to grow. Parishioners constructed a second church in 1892. Growth continued and in June 1913, the third and present church was built to serve nearly 400 members. Bishop Hennessy told the congregation during the church’s dedication that they had erected “one of the grandest tributes of gratitude and faith in the west.” Decline of the school Rural depopulation took a toll on the parish’s membership and the numbers attending the school. Hattrup called Windthorst High School a powerhouse in athletics. The football team, on which Hattrup was member, went undefeated in 1960 through 1962 – 26 straight games. Hattrup said the school also boasted a state runnerup basketball team. The baseball team won Class B state in 1956, according to the Kansas State High School Activities Association. Chad Issinghoff, a Hutchinson doctor, said he attended the public school next to the church, which had nuns as teachers and a priest as the superintendent. His family was among the original waves of German Catholics to come to the area. “It was the center of activities,” Issinghoff said, noting at the time he attended the town still had the church, school rectory, gymnasium and convent, as well as a handful of homes. But the school closed at the end of his freshman year in 1970, merging with nearby Spearville. Spearville had a grade school there for a short time, but eventually it, also, was closed due to rising expenses and the small enrollment. Sister Janice Friess, of Wichita, said she taught first and second grade at the school during the 1960s before it closed. Friess, who turns 84 next month, called it “four wonderful years of teaching.” The church closes By the 1990s, the parish also was seeing a decline. Masses were held just a few times a month. In 1997, the diocese closed the parish due to the dwindling membership and a shortage of priests. “That was a sad situation,” Hattrup said, adding that there “was a little bit of bitterness.” Parishioners, after all, didn’t want to see their

Funds needed for preservation project BY THE NEWS STAFF

Windthorst Heritage board member Dan Torline, Dodge City, whose family also settled in the area in the late 1800s, said the group is currently raising funds to preserve the church’s ornate stainedglass windows. The windows were handcrafted in Munich, Germany and created by Emil Frei’s company in 1916. That same company – based in St. Louis – is still in business today, Torline said. They will begin working on the $105,000 project in June. Torline said the board is looking at three funding avenues – donations, grants and tax credits. The board received a $50,000 church close. Moreover, members had a matter of months to raise funds to save the church or the diocese would tear it down. Thus, supporters formed Windthorst Heritage Inc. with parishioner Susie Rueb as one of the organizers. The group raised $230,000 to save the church – enough funds to create a secure endowment to go toward the structure’s upkeep. Rueb, who married into the Windthorst community,

Meanwhile, Windthorst Heritage President Susie Rueb said the group also has plans in the distant future to construct a museum dedicated to Windthorst as well as Kansas’ religious agricultural settlements.

She could not imagine not trying to save the church, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. Her own family never had established roots in one community, she said. She didn’t know her grandparents. Her husband’s strong community background – the fourth generation on the family homestead – was impressive.

“The steadfastness and solidity – the church represented all that to me,” Rueb, president of the Windthorst Heritage board, said. “When they closed it, I looked at the beauty that was there in the stained glass and such … it was just a beautiful place and a significant place in the history of the church and southwest Kansas. “We needed to preserve that history or no one was going to remember it.” These days, the church stands as an attraction for anyone who wants to venture inside. Dodge City Community College also has concerts there and, on occasion, there are funerals. Next door, a monument to the school, which includes pillars etched with names of each graduating class member, lines the walkway. These graduates and others continue to donate to the cause of preserving the little town’s history, Rueb said. “We have very supportive backing,” she said. The church is one example of the settlement of Kansas – of how agriculture communities formed around a religion, she noted. “There is just a special place in my heart for this place,” Rueb said. “I feel like it is important for my children and grandchildren to know what their ancestors did when they settled the country.” For more on Windthorst, visit Amy Bickel’s blog at deadtowns.

Only about a half dozen people spoke during the hearing, while others submitted written comments, Cochran said. All comments, however, were in opposition to the proposed wells.

Water withdrawl well Water injection well

Litigation history Northern Natural Gas, a division of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, owns the Cunningham Storage Field which has been in use for natural gas storage for 34 years. The company pumped natural gas into depleted gas production fields to create the storage. Northern contends wells drilled in the region by other producers are drawing storage gas away from its field. The producers contest Northern’s claims. A lawsuit against several independent producers forced the shutdown of more than two dozen gas wells located up to seven miles from the original storage cavern boundaries. While the cases remain pending on appeal before the Kansas Supreme Court, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has twice allowed Northern to expand the boundaries of its storage area to encompass the contested wells. The latest ruling, in 2010, allowed Northern to add 12,320 acres or more than 14 square miles to its field, awarding it both mineral and surface rights to the thousands of acres of primarily farm ground. Northern reached settlement with some 29 percent of the landowners, then filed for condemnation through eminent domain on the remaining 9,000 acres. The FERC ruling, however, required Northern Natural to take measures to prevent further migration of the gas. A plan, which FERC approved last year, relies on the deep injection wells and additional monitoring wells. According to permits for the three wells, the injection depth is within the Viola Formation, between 4,293 and 4,285 feet below ground surface. Brine produced

from the nearby Arbuckle formation will be drawn from that zone and some 4,000 barrels a day piped to each deep injection wells for the purpose of stabilizing the pressure in the Viola formation Unknowns “There are a lot of unknowns,” said landowner Arden Vernon, who has both a gas well and farmland within the new storage boundaries. “I don’t want them experimenting under my farm.” A member of the Haynesville Mineral and Surface Owners Association, Vernon is among those who have been fighting expansion of the field for several years. “In reality, it’s probably OK,” Vernon said. “But what happens if it goes sour and finds an old well bore. It will contaminate our irrigation and drinking water; it will contaminate it for a long, long time.” There are a dozen center pivot irrigation systems within the field expansion area, Vernon said. After the Hutchinson gas explosions in 2001, caused by gas leaking from the Yaggy Field storage which migrated seven miles south and erupted through old uncapped salt brine wells, Northern Natural, prompted by regulators, came to his farm asking to test his water to see if any gas was escaping into it, Vernon said. “I’m such a bad neighbor, I didn’t want to let them on my farm,” he said. “But if they’re concerned gas can come six to seven miles and get into my water, if they’re

going to be injecting 168,000 gallons of saltwater every day a short half mile from my well, why should I not be concerned also?” Pratt attorney Gordon Stull, who has represented the land and mineral owners in the Northern cases, also pointed to the Yaggy gas explosions as an illustration of the concern. “There are a lot of wells out there, some going back into the ’40s,” Stull said. “We don’t have good information about how they were plugged, or if they were really plugged. The records are incomplete.” Unplugged or improperly plugged abandoned wells could be a conduit for the salt water to get into groundwater or surface water at higher levels, he contends. “What Northern did was expand their field without having to follow the rules,” Stull said. “Usually they meet all the safety requirements and then put the gas in. They want to do a disposal well, but they haven’t done any work to identify and replug wells.” Stull said he provided a list of at least 10 well records that were nonexistent or incomplete. “I didn’t do an exhaustive search, that’s just representative of the area,” he said. Any permit should also require Northern to establish the quality of the ground and surface water in the region before anything is done, Stull said, “So they have baseline determined if something happens.” “These people have their homes there, they have businesses, livestock, irrigation

Kan. House approves Congress redistricting plan BY JOHN HANNA Associated Press

TOPEKA – The Kansas House approved a plan Saturday for redrawing the state’s four congressional districts backed by the chamber’s conservative Republican leaders, as a moderate GOP senator enmeshed in disputes over political maps moved to jump into a federal lawsuit on redistricting. The House’s vote was 64-51 on a measure that drew criticism over how it split Lawrence, home to the University of Kansas and regarded as a liberal enclave. Part of the city would go into the 1st Congressional District of western and central Kansas, where its Democratic votes would be overwhelmed by GOP votes from rural communities 400 miles or more away. The bill went to the Senate, where President Steve Morris, a moderate Hugoton Republican, was skeptical it would pass, though he said he wouldn’t block a vote.

The Hutchinson News

Senate Reapportionment Committee Chairman Tim Owens, a moderate Overland Park Republican, scoffed at it. “It’s just another joke,” Owens said. “It’s absolutely meaningless.” No redistricting proposal has cleared the Legislature because of a bitter feud between GOP conservatives and moderates over redrawing the Senate’s 40 districts. The maps could help determine which Republican camp controls the Legislature after this year’s elections. The impasse – with Owens at the center, because of his chairmanship – threatens to delay the state’s Aug. 7 primary election. He now wants to intervene in the federal redistricting lawsuit. The latest congressional redistricting plan draws slightly more Republican districts for three of the four members of the state’s allGOP U.S. House delegation; the exception is 1st District Rep. Tim Huelskamp. Both chambers have approved a

map previously, only to have the other kill it. Conservatives said splitting Lawrence is acceptable partly because the city is now divided between the 2nd District of eastern Kansas and the 3rd District, centered on the Kansas City metropolitan area. The portion of the city that would stay in the 2nd under the latest plan includes the University of Kansas campus. “It’s very fair,” said House Majority Leader Arlen Siegfreid, an Olathe Republican. Owens filed a request Saturday in U.S. District Court to intervene in the redistricting lawsuit. He’s among nine people, including House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, asking to intervene. Gov. Sam Brownback, a conservative Republican, said he may also seek to intervene. Such requests are due by Monday. A hearing before three federal judges is scheduled to begin May 29.

KDHE /Northern responses The brine water won’t be injected under pressure, KDHE’s Cochrane noted, but by gravity. That will prevent any pressure build up beyond a quarter mile of each well. The geology and groundwater wells in the area have been reviewed as part of the permit application, and the design and construction of the injection wells will be tested. The state also added extra requirements for groundwater monitoring, both deep and shallow, at each injection well site. “It’s a pro-active program,” Cochrane said. “The idea is to make sure the injection operations are protective of the groundwater. That’s our main concern.” The landowners’ contamination concerns are unfounded, said Mike Loeffler, a spokesman for Northern Natural Gas, who said there is also no analogy that can be made with the Yaggy field. “It involved vertical migration,” he said. “Ours is

horizontal. It doesn’t come to the surface. Above the geologic formation is a cap rock, called Kinderhook, that’s been in place millions of years. The saltwater we’re talking about is thousands of feet below the surface. It’s just not possible…” “There was a litany of allegations they made that have no basis in fact,” he said. The injection process will be the same as producers used to extract the gas, Loeffler said, only in reverse. “There’s no possibility of contaminating potable water and we believe the permits demonstrate that,” Loeffler said. “Let me as-

sure you, the containment plan we’re employing was evaluated by independent federal regulators and they have approved the plan explicitly offered by Northern. They had a team of experts who looked at a mountain of data and gave approval to our plan.” The KDHE will likely make a ruling on the permits in the next 60 days, after staff drafts responses to all the comments made during the Pratt meeting and KDHE Secretary Robert Moser considers the application. There is no specific time requirement for considering the permit applications.

Grand opening day for fresh produce fanciers BY KATHY HANKS The Hutchinson News

Gene Haas was ready with his wallet the moment the 27th annual Reno County Farmer’s Market opened at 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning. But he wasn’t the first customer of the season. “I was probably the 12th customer,” said Haas carrying a bag of just purchased onions, squash and radishes. He plans to return to the market in the pavilion at Second and Washington avenues for the rest of the summer for his fresh vegetables. It beats weeding his own garden, he said. Inside the pavilion customers were giddy with excitement as they examined the heads of lettuce, broccoli and cauliflower. Vegetables were all three to four weeks ahead of schedule because of the mild winter and warm spring, said Roman Miller, a local producer who always has a booth at the market. “I’ve been waiting a year for this to open,” said Sandy Brooks, as she examined a perfect head of cabbage at Miller’s busy booth. Tables were laden with just perfect cabbage, romaine lettuce and big leaves of spinach. Plus, there were plenty of onions, radishes, and beets. It was the same for the other vendors like Earl and Pam Polk who had to hustle to keep up with the customers in the early morning rush to find the best vegetables. “It’s a red-letter day,” said Sharon Hixson, who woke her husband, Warren, two hours early to get to the market while supplies lasted. But even some of the early birds weren’t early enough for Pam Wilson’s pocket pies and large cookies, which sold out 30 minutes after the market opened. Wilson was one of the returning vendors with new items to sell along with her jams and jellies. Saturday she had individual pineapple upside down cakes.

IF YOU GO The Reno County Farmer’s Market is held from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays through Oct. 27; and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays, June 13 to Oct. 27, at the Farmer’s Market Pavilion, Second and Washington. Online:

Bill Drews, of D and D Honey, chats with customers Richard and Maxine Wickliffe. band Simone du Garfunk, Wilson said, “This is the place to be on Saturday morning.” The rule of the market is if you make it, bake it or grow it you can have a booth and sell it at the market. The market is only open to Kansas growers or producers. A new vendor this year was Angela’s Crafts. Back in December, Angela Stevens decided to make homemade soaps and

apothecaries for gifts. She turned it into a business selling at the flea market. Stevens was excited to have a table at Saturday’s market that included everything from old fashioned homemade German sausage, local honey, to Miriam Iwashige’s delicate cuttings of Larkspur and other cottage variety flowers. “I always bring Sweet William, but it has already

come and gone,” Iwashige said. Fresh tomatoes thrilled Fridl Schneider. “I was very surprised, there was a truck load at $1.50 a pound,” she said, as she headed home with her purchase to make a tomato salad. Over in a corner, Marilyn Stucky was sitting on a bench sharing a sticky strawberry fruit bun with her friend Sunny Hinsdill, who ran into her at the market and saw she was eating something. “I was hoping she would share,” said Hinsbill, as she tore off a piece of the bun. “It’s to die for,” Stucky said.

TOPEKA – Negotiators in the Kansas Legislature struck a deal Saturday to provide more help for college students who struggle academically. The changes would require state universities to work with students admitted under exceptions to the state’s qualified admissions standards. The goal is to help students who may have not been prepared for the rigors of college to develop good study habits and strategies to make the grade and earn their degree. The students would be required to develop an “individual plan for success” with an academic adviser and other university staff. The House and Senate still must vote on the proposal, which is part of a conference committee report. The changes would take effect in 2014. Each state university is currently allowed to admit up to 10 percent of its incoming freshman class who fail to meet admissions standards, which include a student’s GPA in a college prep curriculum or qualifying scores on national college entrance exams. “We’re wanting to make sure that they succeed, which is my concern,” said Rep. Clay Aurand, a Belleville Republican and House negotiator on the bill. “This gets to my concern that if we are letting some of the kids in through the exception that we ought to help them succeed.” The bill would reduce the exception percentages at Kansas State, the University of Kansas and Wichita State to 5 percent of the freshman class, and leave it at 10 percent at Emporia State, Fort Hays State and Pittsburg State. The agreement includes language that would prohibit universities from using state funds to provide remedial courses for students. Sen. Jean Schodorf, the Senate Education Committee chairwoman, was concerned about what universities would do if it was determined that some students targeted for additional assistance needed remedial courses. The original language of the proposal also included looking at the student’s living arrangements and any extracurricular activities in which they were involved. “Don’t you think this is a little far-reaching,” said Schodorf, a Wichita Republican, before the housing and activities language were deleted. Aurand said he came up with the assistance piece after consulting with Kansas Board of Regent Chairman Ed McKechnie. Legislators are also considering changes in K-12 education, including increasing funding for the 2012-13 school year and changing to how the state pays school districts for students who are determined to be at risk of academic failure. School districts receive additional funding for each student who qualifies for free lunches. The theory is that those students are living at or below the poverty line and income is considered one of the best indicators of success in the classroom. The changes would require school districts to repay the state if it’s later determined that a student didn’t qualify for free lunches. The amount is about $3.5 million a year statewide. Another provision at play would modify the state’s funding for districts with high concentrations of at-risk students. Districts with 50 percent or more at-risk would receive 10 percent more at-risk funding, sliding down a scale to 6 percent for those with at least 35 percent at-risk.

PORT LUDLOW, Wash. – The sweetest person left us when Patti passed peacefully May 11, 2012, at home in Port Ludlow, Wash., with her granddaughter, Cassie, and husband of 52 years, Gary, by her side. SETTLE Patti was born in 1938 in Hutchinson, to Fred and Doris Simpson. She met Gary, (a News photographer for four years in the mid-fifties) on his birthday in 1959, and they married in Hutchinson seven months later. Patti is survived by her loving husband; three sons, Kent (Eileen) of Walla Walla, Wash., Scott (Diane) of Everett, Wash. and Chris (Camille) of Seattle; and six grandchildren, Brittany, Cassandra, Christopher, Liam, David and Ruby, all of Washington. Patti studied art at the University of Kansas, the Art Institute of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, and she graduated with a BFA from Washburn University of Topeka. Shortly after college, she devoted her life to raising three boys. She returned to the workforce for several years when the boys hit college, and was the last managing editor of Seattle Woman magazine in the 80s. She did marketing for a notable graphic design firm in Seattle, and then with her son, Chris, which she often described as her favorite job. An active, creative and nurturing woman, Patti’s precious life was undeservedly ended by a six-month bout of cancer. A lifelong budding artist whose creativity was intermittently interrupted by the needs of raising a family, she was finally able to develop her talents after moving to a new home in Port Ludlow where she had her first studio of her own. As she recently described her resumption of painting in preparing for her first art museum exhibition: Contrary to my fears, nothing seemed lost. All experiences were absorbed. Finally, with a studio of my own and a determination to get back on track, life began to flow once again along (my) chosen path. My first two years in the studio were spent producing as many paintings as possible, redeveloping techniques and eliminating the extraneous. By the third year, I felt I was creating some work worthy of showing.

Lucky man had an eye for many businesses BY KATHY HANKS The Hutchinson News

DIGHTON – Jay Walker was a lucky man. The 89-year-old died May 12, but his family remembered his life filled with so many blessings. Following Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, Walker was gung ho to head off to war. But he was only a WALKER high school senior, and he listened to his mother’s advice to finish school before enlisting. But, by the summer of 1942, he was a sailor in search of his ship. He wasn’t part of a unit, but sent off alone to find his ship, the U.S. South Dakota. The warship’s whereabouts were kept top secret, so Walker, trained as an airplane mechanic and gunner, traveled all over the South Pacific in various watercraft in search of the vessel. When he finally found it, he climbed up the ladder and Fleet Adm. William Halsey saluted the young sailor thinking someone important had arrived on deck. After 29 men were killed on his ship, Walker soon realized the dangers of being a gunner. “He saw they were getting wiped out,” said his daughter Janet Robertson. “They asked if anybody could cut hair. He thought that was something he could do because he cut his father’s hair.” The lucky man spent the rest of the war as a Navy barber on the island of Espirito Santos in the South Pacific. Walker’s children and



grandchildren never heard these stories until several years ago. After he died, the family found his discharge papers with three medals pinned to it. Walker was too busy moving headlong into his future following the war. Back in Dighton, he joined a Bible study group and became acquainted with Elaine Whiting from Amy. They were married in 1947. She preceded him in death. Walker is survived by two daughters, Robertson, and Joyce Hineman, four grandchildren and a great granddaughter. “Dad was happy as a business man,” said Robertson. “When we’d try to get him to do fun things he’d say how can you have more fun than watching the right side of the ledger grow bigger?” Following the war, his first enterprise was bringing plumbing to rural homes. Rural electric cooperatives were bringing electricity to the farmsteads. And Walker saw opportunity taking the farmers from outhouses to indoor bathrooms. The grandson of William Walker, who built the first frame house in Lane County in 1886, Jay went into farming with his dad, Jay

Walker Sr. However, he wanted to follow modern agriculture practices, so when his father died, he turned to cash crop farming and irrigating. His farm ground was on the very edge of town, and when people began complaining about the manure in his fertilizer, he decided to sell that ground, and it was turned into Walker’s subdivision. “It wouldn’t have mattered what he did, he loved business,” Robertson said. “He never was as happy as when they were drilling oil on his ground. He loved learning about oil and the business of oil.” Robertson said her dad taught her to show up for work and stop complaining about it. “He also taught me the value of treating people well,” she said. “He treated everyone beautifully. He didn’t know a stranger. If someone didn’t have a place to go on Christmas, he’d invite them to Christmas dinner.” Walker came from a long line of Masons and spent years achieving every degree, living the values set by the organization. Wednesday he was buried in his past master’s apron, having lived his life upon the level and dying upon the square.

Records: Joplin twister was costliest since ’50 BY DAVID A. LIEB

truck and trailer used to shuttle band equipment between makeshift school buildings, as well as the concession stand, bleachers, flagpoles, fences, outdoor basketball hoops and new mulch for playgrounds. The cost to remove and replace the mulch at just three sites: $7,100. The city has its own share of tornado costs, like the manhole covers. The tornado also destroyed two sirens that warn people of dangerous storms. Taxpayers paid more than $41,000 for temporary and permanent replacements, according to disaster-aid records. During the cleanup, 14 fire hydrants and curbs and gutters at 111 locations were damaged by heavy equipment. And tires were punctured on about 125 vehicles, costing almost $57,300.

Associated Press

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The cost of 30 manhole covers that got sucked away: $5,800. A new concession stand at the destroyed high school: $228,600. Shelter and care for more than 1,300 homeless pets: $372,000. The tornado that tore through Joplin a year ago already ranks as the deadliest twister in six decades. Now it carries another distinction – the costliest since at least 1950. Insurance policies are expected to cover most of the $2.8 billion in damage. But taxpayers could supply about $500 million in the form of federal and state disaster aid, low-interest loans and local bonds backed by higher taxes, according to records obtained by The Associated Press and interviews with federal, state and local officials. Almost one-fifth of that money was paid to contractors who hauled off debris. Tens of millions more dollars went to individuals for temporary housing and other living expenses in the immediate aftermath of the storm. Additional money could help subsidize construction of a new hospital to replace one that was irreparably damaged. All told, about two dozen school districts, emergency agencies, public housing authorities, religious groups and other nonprofits could receive taxpayer money through a program run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The outpouring of assistance is nowhere near the scale of Hurricane Katrina, which swamped New Orleans and damaged property along a wide swath of the Gulf Coast in 2005. Yet the Joplin tornado raises questions anew about the government’s role in disasters. For Joplin families still on the long road to recovery, the taxpayer aid generally is appreciated. The twister killed Danielle Robertson’s mother and destroyed the duplex she shared with her teenage daughter and two dogs. After several months of temporary living arrangements, Robertson eventually got one of the FEMA trailers for tornado survivors. No rent or utility payments were required. “There are just thousands of people who would not have recovered at all had that aid not been there. I mean there’s no way,” said Robertson, who finally moved into a rebuilt rental home about three weeks ago. “I like to consider myself a survivalist, but there was nothing to survive with.” The Joplin tornado, which killed 161 people, was one of 99 major disasters declared by President Barack Obama in 2011. Others included blizzards, wildfires and hurricanes. Congress responded in December by authorizing an extra $8.6 billion in disaster aid.

Shirley Waits sits outside her mother’s home in Joplin , Mo., on May 25, 2011, while waiting for an insurance adjuster to arrive after a massive tornado moved through Joplin three days earlier, leveling much of the city. The tornado that tore through Joplin a year ago already ranks as the deadliest twister in six decades. Now it carries another distinction – the costliest since at least 1950. Insurance policies are expected to cover most of the $2.8 billion in damage. But records obtained by The Associated Press show taxpayers could supply $500 million. Missouri has a rainy day fund with about $500 million that was created for costly emergencies. But the fund hasn’t been tapped for Joplin because Gov. Jay Nixon and some lawmakers are reluctant to trigger a constitutional mandate that the borrowed money be replenished within three years. Some critics of federal disaster aid point to Missouri’s rainy day fund as a prime example of how states pass the buck to the federal government for local tragedies. “It seems to me this indicates the bad incentive problem that comes with federal involvement – that states would rather tap federal taxpayers before they have to tap their own taxpayers,” said Chris Edwards, an economist and editor of, a website run by the Washington-based Cato Institute, a group that promotes free markets. FEMA Director Craig Fugate said it takes an especially destructive tornado to trigger federal aid. What made the Joplin tornado so unusual was the intensity of the devastation in such a concentrated area, he said. “We’re talking thousands of families impacted, hundreds of deaths, the trauma to the community alone was overwhelming,” Fugate said. “The likelihood of Joplin being able to recover successfully without federal assistance ... warranted the president declaring it” a disaster zone. Some of the taxpayer-sub-

sidized projects, such as rebuilding St. John’s Regional Medical Center, will benefit people well beyond Joplin. The hospital served patients from a wide region extending into southeastern Kansas and northeastern Oklahoma. Hospital administrators estimate their total cost from the tornado at $950 million, including demolishing the old building, creating temporary facilities and constructing a permanent replacement. The hospital expects to get more than $345 million from insurance. It’s submitted more than $88 million of expenses to FEMA, of which the federal government could pay for 75 percent. The rest will be covered by private donations and the resources of the Sisters of Mercy Health System, which runs the hospital. “We do hope to get some money from FEMA, but we’re not counting on that,” said Shelly Hunter, the chief financial officer for Mercy Health of Joplin. The cost of replacing damaged school buildings will be covered largely by insurance, too. But voters recently approved the largest bond issue in Joplin history – $62 million – to help rebuild or repair 10 school buildings. The resulting property tax increase is estimated at $65 a year for the owner of a $100,000 home – roughly a 10 percent hike. The Joplin school district has sought disaster aid for dozens of costs not covered by insurance, such as a

tee, but we’ve not yet met,” said Joe Grieshaber, president of Dillons Stores and Chamber Board chairmanelect, who will chair the selection committee. Eleven people have been named to the committee, including eight of nine people who served on the committee that selected the last chamber president, Monty Montgomery of Big Spring, Texas, who resigned last month after just three months on the job. New to the committee are

Kevin Miller, president/CEO of Hutchinson Regional Medical Center, Jade Piros de Carvalho, president of LogicMaze, and Bob Fee, Fee Insurance Group. State Fair Manager Denny Stoecklein is the only member of the previous selection committee not staying on. “All have agreed to participate, so the first step is to get the group together and discuss the process, how we want to approach it,” Grieshaber said. “There’s a lot of experience (on the se-

lection board) and a good mixture of business leaders.” Since the last selection process was less than a year ago, the committee will discuss whether it needs to once more gather input from its members on what to look for in a new leader, Grieshaber said. The chamber held a forum in October – just six months ago – to get member input on the selection. “We’re not sure if we need to do that again,” Grieshaber said. “It will certainly be a topic for the committee, if we

He brings a lot of knowledge into the role and he was very gracious to step in and allow us to have the freedom of time to do the search the right way and get the right candidate. Our goal is to conduct a good search and find the right candidate.

ENERGY Weekly US oil, gas rig count up by 12 to 1,986 HOUSTON – The number of rigs actively exploring for oil and natural gas in the U.S. is up 12 this week to 1,986. Houston-based oilfield services company Baker Hughes Inc. reported Friday that 1,382 rigs were exploring for oil and 600 were looking for gas. Four were listed as miscellaneous. A year ago this week, Baker Hughes reported 1,830 rigs. Of the major oil- and gas-producing states, New Mexico gained three rigs; California and West Virginia each gained two; and Alaska, Colorado and North Dakota were up one apiece. Pennsylvania declined by four rigs and Arkansas by one. Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming were unchanged. The rig count peaked at 4,530 in 1981 and bottomed at 488 in 1999.

After 65 years on Hutchinson’s Main Street, longtime family-owned Janitorial Supply Inc. has sold and will be relocating. All of the current employees will remain with the company and the business will be able to expand its inventory and offerings with its new, much larger Fourth Avenue location, said 18year employee Debbie Stewart. Still, it ends a three-generation downtown operation first started by John and Grace Blick in 1947. “My grandfather started it and my dad, Fred Blick, took over it,” Stewart said. The business first opened in the 400 block of Main. It moved four times on that block over the years before claiming the corner of Sherman and Main in August 1998, where it has remained. “Grandpa had a partner when he started it, and they also ran a window-cleaning business, City Window Cleaning,” Stewart said. “My dad ran the window crew. When that went away, he started working for the janitorial part.” John and Grace Blick ran the business until John died in July 1975. Fred then ran it for his mother until about 1980, when he bought it. Fred Blick, now 76, has owned and operated it since, also employing his daughters there. As its name indicated, the business offers janitorial supplies, from mops and brooms to toilet paper and trash bags. “Anything you need to clean,” Stewart said. “We have a full line of paper products and some food service, like foam plates and cups. We have vacuums and floor equipment, such as buffers and burnishers. “We’ve always been for both institutions and individuals,” Stewart said. “Anybody can come into the store and buy anything. We’re not dedicated just to commercial, though we do deal with commercial businesses. A lot of people come in to buy trash cans and cleaners.”

Sewing success Embroidery shop grew from back of business to own storefront, big-time clients BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News

She’s loved sewing all her life, since learning to operate a treadle machine as a toddler at her mother’s side. She worked at it professionally for a while in a Hutchinson drapery company that no longer exists. Jan Reffner freely admits, however, some level of trepidation when her husband suggested back in 1994 they buy an embroidery machine to set her up in business in the back of Reffner’s Sporting Goods on Hutchinson’s Main Street. “I thought, ‘Oh my goodness, I can’t do that,’” recalled the owner of this month’s Hutchinson/Reno County Small Business of the Month. “I saw the new machine and I still thought that. But I did it.” The machine was a single-head Melco-brand embroiderer, which they purchased after watching it perform at an industry trade show in Atlanta. Now, 17 years later, the machine is still used at Classic Embroidery by Jan, 12 N. Main. But it’s off to the side, next to a six-head Tajimabrand machine with 72 needles that her company eventually grew to need. Reffner also recalls her first order, of 1,000 ball caps. “She was in that back room a long time,” said husband and busi-

RECALL Fire risk prompts recall of nearly 87,000 Jeeps DETROIT – Chrysler is recalling nearly 87,000 Jeep Wranglers in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere due to a risk of fires. The recall affects only Wranglers from the 2010 model year that have automatic transmissions and were built before July 14, 2010, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in documents posted Saturday on its website. Debris can get caught between a plate that protects the transmission and the catalytic converter, causing a fire. A catalytic converter is part of the exhaust system and uses heat and precious metals to control pollution.

Jan Reffner, owner of Classic Embroidery by Jan, explains how to thread the six-head embroidery machine at her business on North Main Tuesday afternoon. ness partner Denny Reffner. She also ran the machine’s needle through her finger – but only once. The business grew from that single machine, in the back of another business, to its Main Street storefront which has more than 400 accounts and employs four people. Among its clients are the

Hutchinson Chamber, Kansas Cosmosphere and Underground Salt Museum, as well as a number of large restaurants and corporations. Some 96 percent of the business is corporate accounts, the couple said, with the remainder from walk-in clients. This week the staff was finishing up an order of jackets for the Midian Shrine – a job requiring some 78,000 stitches in four colors, each jacket running on the machine for more than two hours. If doing a simple logo, they may process 50 to 60 shirts in a day. There was no one doing clothing embroidery in Hutchinson at the time she started, so demand quickly developed, Jan Reffner said. From the single machine Reffner expanded in 1997 to a four-head machine that could do four duplicate embroideries at one time – plus the original – and she relocated to inside Frank’s Frame Shop. A year or two later, she moved into her own storefront and then

‘Robberies by appointment’ can be a Craigslist peril BY THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU

From California to Oklahoma to Georgia, cases of Craigslist crimes are cropping up like weeds lately. Even as attorneys general warnings, alerts from district attorneys and cautions from Craigslist itself proliferate, the public continues to be victimized by online schemers. Your Better Business Bureau urges caution when buying or selling on the popular classified ad site. What has become known as “robbery by appointment” is a particularly devious scheme now on a sharp rise nationally. Here’s how it works: A seller advertises a product on Craigslist or another such service. The product could be anything from smartphones to jewelry or you-name-it. A “buyer” contacts them

and they agree to meet where the deal will be conducted. At that meeting, the seller is robbed, in some cases beaten up, and –in at least one case in Washington state – murdered. Such incidents are being reported in broad daylight and in public places in “safe” neighborhoods. College campuses have even been the locations for these robberies. In some instances, the victim has been the person who showed up to purchase the item advertised online. A student in Georgia was about to make a purchase when the “seller” snatched the money from her hand and ran. The important thing to such thieves is that the appointment with their victim is arranged. At that appointment, the robber either steals what’s for sale or

steals the money of a seller. Safeguarding yourself The following tips can help prevent your selling or buying transaction from turning into a crime scene: ● Insist on meeting in a busy public place like a cafe. The more people around you, the better. ● Bring someone with you to the meeting. It’s also a good idea to let someone else know that you are going to the location for the sale. ● Do not arrange for the meeting to take place at your home. Do not invite a stranger into your home. ● If you’re selling or buying an item of high value, be extra cautious. Plan ahead to ask a lot of questions and get satisfactory answers before agreeing to the transaction.

● Take your cellphone with you and be prepared to call 911 if necessary. ● Don’t be pressured. Err on the side of caution, especially if something just doesn’t seem right about the sale. Trust your instincts. Transactions that do not involve a face-to-face meeting are also commonly used to take your money from you. ‘ Scammers have always favored “deals” that involve wiring funds via Western Union, Money Gram or some other wire service. Such requests are one of the biggest red flags to watch for. Never engage in transactions that require wiring money. Also, be aware that fake cashiers’ checks and money orders are a common occurrence. Banks will cash them and then hold you responsible for the money. As always, be aware of at-

Small businesses band together to drum up interest BY THE NEWS STAFF

Recognizing the importance of independently owned small businesses to a community’s wellbeing and the consequence of shopping locally – or not – a number of area small businesses have joined together in an effort to promote each other and shopping at home. Launched as part of National Small Business Week, the participating businesses will invite each other’s clients to not only frequent their own stores and businesses, but to ask them to visit other local businesses as well, said Vicki Adrian, longtime owner of Adrian’s Boutique in Buhler and the person behind the effort. “What three independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared?” Adrian asked. “Your favorite local restaurant, retail store, insurance agent, and art gallery are most likely a small proprietorship, but bring a lot of traffic and commerce to your community. This week is National Small Business Week and it is a great time to look at your current shopping habits and take a minute to think about where your money goes.” For every $100 spent in locally owned independent stores, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures, Adrian said. Of the

same money spent at a national chain, only $43 stays in the community. “Spend it online and nothing comes home,” Adrian said. Ben Miller with Stutzman’s Greenhouse, Pleasantview, was quick to join the effort. He saw it as an opportunity to create awareness of the economic impact a small business has on a community. Miller employs more than 100 people locally and around the region. Other partners include Anne Armstrong of nationally renowned Roy’s Hickory Pit BBQ, Jeni and Andrew Bryan, a young couple who became owners of Jackson Meat in downtown Hutchinson two years ago, Cindy Kaufman and her Mustard Seed Deli in downtown Buhler, and Michelle Martens, manager of the

Prairie Fire Art Gallery in Buhler, which is home to 15 local artists who specialize in glass, oils, metals and other mediums. Adrian recorded video clips of each of the businesses and will include them on Facebook and in weekly emails that she will send to her clients this week. “I feel it is so important to make the personal connection with each client, and the video allows us to introduce a business to someone that may have driven by an establishment for many years, but just has never come in the door,” she said. “Reno County is blessed to have a community rich with independent businesses,” Adrian said. “Choose to venture a little bit off the beaten path. If you do you will find exceptional cre-

ative businesses that are good for you and the community.”

tempts to get your private financial information. Don’t give out any of it. Craigslist also warns users to avoid deals that involve shipping or escrow services. Be aware that thieves know this, too. Proactive precautions can help you avoid

becoming victim to a scam or to “robbery by appointment.” Contact your Better Business Bureau with concerns or questions. They’re at 1 (800) 856-2417 or online at

Solid competition Having candidate challengers is a good thing for voters, state t least three Reno County A House districts may have something that has been sorely needed in recent years: competition. In the 101st House District – currently held by Rep. Joe Seiwert – Reno County resident Carol Moore has stepped up as a Democratic challenger. Meanwhile, in the 104th House District, Speaker of the House Mike O’Neal, who has held the seat since 1985, will face off in a primary contest against retired District Court Judge Steven Becker, assuming O’Neal files for reelection. And Rep. Jan Pauls, who has held her 102nd House District seat since 1991 largely without serious opposition, likewise will defend her seat against fellow Democrat Erich Bishop. Far too often, elected officials don’t have to defend their practices, convictions or actions to their constituents. When elected leaders aren’t challenged as part of

a competitive race, those leaders have little incentive to explain the decisions they have made in office. Instead, they run rudimentary campaigns that do little more than remind people that their name will be on the ballot. Unfortunately, more often than not, that is the only name on the ballot. When people aren’t engaged in the political process, the process fails. Having strong candidates vying for an office holds the candidates, and the eventual office-holder, accountable to the public. Yet putting one’s reputation, time and energy on the line for a largely thankless job is a hard sell. That is why it is all the more impressive that these three challengers have voluntarily made their lives more complicated, and themselves vulnerable, in an effort to make Kansas a better place to live and work. In Reno County, the spring of challengers is encouraging, and it is something Kansans should hope happens in their House, Senate and congressional districts.


Parents’ behavior squeezing good coaches One of my favorite people in the world stopped doing what he does best. He no longer works with teenagers to make them better baseball players – and, more important, better people. He’s now a high school administrator, which means he climbed the food chain and still has a hand in the educational process. But there is a degree of separation between him and the students. It’s a shame. Such a waste. When he was on the diamond, his players gravitated toward him. They adsorbed what he said. You could feel the passion in every word of instruction. Baseball was his passion. And his players responded. Teaching it was his calling. But after five years of coaching high school baseball, he gave it up. He got out partially jaded by the experience, but with his sanity still intact. Don’t get the wrong idea. He won a lot of games. His program made it to the Kansas Class 6A semifinals in his second year. And he prepared just about every kid on his roster – and a few ballplayers – for life at the next level. He loved it. But there was a side to the job that became unbearable. In short, there was too much politics and way too many parents for him to be able to do his job. When are we going to learn a lesson from these premature departures? The career coach is becoming a symbol of a bygone era. There was a time when a young coach took a job while the ink on his teaching certificate was still tacky. He proceeded to spend the next 40 or 50 years at that school. In that time, he became entrenched in the community. He devoted his life to that school, and he ended up coaching the sons and grandsons of former players.

Pat Sangimino My high school football coach is that guy. I used to think his longevity had elevated him into a position that made him beyond reproach. That’s a naïve way of thinking nowadays. I’m certain there are parents sitting at midfield each Friday night in the fall convinced that the reason his team isn’t winning is because the game has passed him by, convinced that he is too old to make their son better. That’s the way some parents think these days. It’s never the fault of the Jimmys and Joes. Instead, they blame the Xs and Os. It’s far more convenient. Parental involvement has always been one of the necessary evils of high school sports. Schools need Mom and Dad to raise money and to support athletic programs in other ways. They serve a vital role. But their influence has to be limited. Somewhere, a disconnect has taken root. There’s a sense of selfimportance. They feel empowered to question a coach’s strategic decisions, his or her decisions on who plays and the methods a coach uses for motivating players. The coach that never swore, but demanded the most from his players, can be fired. A coach who brought a state championship to his program just a few years earlier could be in trouble if he cuts the wrong player from the team. And another coach – 22 years on the job – could be deemed replace-

able at the drop of a bunt if his program falls on hard times. It’s happened in these parts – and relatively recently. Every school has a small group of out-of-control parents. Some – like the one I encountered recently at a regional tennis tournament – are rogue troublemakers. Fortunately, he was escorted out of the Wichita Heights complex. Unfortunately, his ouster came about an hour too late. In his brief time at courtside, he questioned every close call (players make their own calls in high school tennis) and then proceeded to call his son’s opponent a “punk” late in the first set. His behavior was reprehensible, and the tournament director who ejected him from the match deserves some credit. Tournament directors, athletic directors and school administrators can learn a whole lot from that action. The man was asked to leave. And the match went on. That could be a microcosm for the way high school athletics should be run all the time. A parent who raises an issue about a coach’s ability should be listened to. And then, if no criminal action or misconduct is being committed by the coach, the athletic director and school administration should see the parent to the door while offering unconditional support to their coach. That’s the job – one of the more important ones. No one player is bigger than a program – or the coach who spent years building it for mere pennies per hour. No class of athletes is bigger than a program. Students have a right simply not to go out for a team. If that’s the choice, someone else will fill the roster spot and the games will go on. They always do. Pat Sangimino is sports editor for The Hutchinson News. Email:

Tough on crime, tough on justice So the people got sick of it, all those criminals being coddled by all those bleeding heart liberal judges with all their soft-headed concern for rights and rehabilitation. And a wave swept this country in the Reagan years, a wave ridden by pundits and politicians seeking power, a wave that said, no mercy, no more. From now on, judges would be severely limited in the sentences they could hand down for certain crimes, required to impose certain punishments whether or not they thought those punishments fit the circumstances at hand. From now on, there was a new mantra in American justice. From now on, we would be “tough on crime.” We got tough on Jerry Dewayne Williams, a small-time criminal who stole a slice of pizza from a group of children. He got 25 years. We got tough on Duane Silva, a guy with an IQ of 71 who stole a VCR and a coin collection. He got 30 to life. We got tough on Dixie Shanahan, who shot and killed the husband who had beaten her for three days straight, punching her in the face, pounding her in the stomach, dragging her by the hair, because she refused to have an abortion. She got 50 years. We got tough on Jeff Berryhill, who got drunk one night, kicked in an apartment door and punched a guy who was inside with Berryhill’s girlfriend. He got 25 years. Now, we have gotten tough on Marissa Alexander. She is the Jacksonville, Fla., woman who said her husband flew into a violent rage and tried to strangle her when he found text messages to her first husband on her phone. She said she fled to her car, but in her haste, forgot her keys. She

By now, it should be obvious how wrongheaded and costly that reasoning was — and how urgently we need to roll back the wave that swept over us in the Reagan years. It is understandable that the nation wanted to get tough on crime. took a pistol from the garage and returned to the house for them. When her husband came after her again, she fired — into the ceiling. The warning shot made him back off. No one was hurt. Like Shanahan before her, Alexander was offered a plea bargain. Like Shanahan, she declined, reasoning that no one would convict her under the circumstances. Like Shanahan, she was wrong. Earlier this month, Alexander got 20 years for aggravated assault. And like Shanahan, like Berryhill, Williams, Silva and Lord only knows how many others, she received that outlandish sentence not because the judge had a heart like Simon Legree’s, but because he was constrained by so-called

“mandatory-minimum” sentencing guidelines that tie judges’ hands, allow them no leeway for consideration, compassion, context or common sense. In other words, they prohibit judges from judging. Charles Smith, the judge who sent Shanahan away, put it best. He said the sentence he was required to impose “may be legal, but it is wrong.” Amen. The Eighth Amendment prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment.” In a nation where we execute people based on no evidence save eyewitness testimony, it is hard to imagine what meaning that prohibition still holds. But assuming it means anything, surely it means you can’t draw a 20year sentence for shooting a ceiling. Except that Alexander just did. In restricting judges from judging, we have instituted a one-sizefits-all version of justice that bears little resemblance to the real thing. It proceeds from the same misguided thinking that produced the absurd “zero tolerance” school drug policies that routinely get children suspended for bringing aspirin and Midol to class. In both cases, there is this silly idea that by requiring robotic adherence to inflexible rules we will produce desirable results. By now, it should be obvious how wrongheaded and costly that reasoning was — and how urgently we need to roll back the wave that swept over us in the Reagan years. It is understandable that the nation wanted to get tough on crime. But we have been rather hard on justice, too. Email Leonard Pitts at

Protecting the process Let’s be clear ... the proposed remediation to legislative invocations in our community does not prevent or inhibit Christians, Jews, Muslims, Atheists, Pagans, Pastafarians or any other person who identifies with a particular belief system from praying, not praying or giving homage to their God, goddess, multiple gods or even no god at all. On the contrary, the issue being considered by the Reno County Commission is exactly how government can guarantee that all religious liberty is protected from encroachment by other religions (or “non-religions”) that might compete within and therefore sully the governmental process. The protection of one religion must, at all costs, be extended to the protection of all religions. This includes those religions that might be different than the one you are used to. In fact, those other religions might be so very different, as to be diametrically opposed to beliefs of your religion. The ability of government to enact these protections requires that it take an indisputably neutral position on the subject of religion. Indeed, citizens of the U.S. are afforded the most liberal religious freedoms in the world. The First Amendment ensures that you and I are allowed to pursue whatever religion we wish. No matter how silly or unreasonable it may sound to our neighbors. This freedom is extended into all facets of our society, right up to the edge of government. It is at this precipice that we must, unanimously, stand up with one common voice and demand that our government reject the temptations to adopt, endorse or participate in any religion so that our government may remain beyond reproach in its efforts to serve as a voice for all people regardless of their religious beliefs. Society-at-large will naturally ferret out the most extreme in favor of the moderates. However, it is not in the interest of government to weigh in on which religion is right or wrong. This is not a simple task put before our local officials. Allowing one religion to pursue their practices in the form of legislative invocations may be in direct conflict with others, having the chilling effect of cultivating a non-inclusive environment in our governmental process. The last thing any of us should want is a government that takes sides on the issues of religions. I do not envy the Reno County Commission’s decision as it is certainly wrought with deeply emotional conflict. However, one option seems to stand above all others. A moment of silence has been offered as a possible solution to this dilemma and may meet the diversity test. It seems that everyone’s needs are met by allowing silent invocation for those that wish to participate, while also not alienating other citizens that may not subscribe to that type of belief system. To adopt an alternative will surely doom our community to more polarizing debate. While not true for all, most of us don’t want that. ROB MATTOX Hutchinson

The president’s ‘other gospel’

Same-sex marriage: Empathy or right? WASHINGTON – There are two ways to defend gay marriage. Argument A is empathy: One is influenced by gay friends in committed relationships yearning for the fulfillment and acceptance that marriage conveys upon heterosexuals. That’s essentially the case President Obama made when he first announced his change of views. No talk about rights, just human fellow feeling. Such an argument is attractive because it can be compelling without being compulsory. Many people, feeling the weight of this longing among their gay friends, are willing to redefine marriage for the sake of simple human sympathy. At the same time, however, one can sympathize with others who feel great trepidation at the radical transformation of the most fundamental of social institutions, one that, until yesterday, was heterosexual in all societies in all places at all times. The empathy argument both encourages mutual respect in the debate and lends itself to a political program of gradualism. State by state, let community norms and moral sensibilities prevail. Indeed, that is Obama’s stated position. Such pluralism allows for the kind of “stable settlement of the issue” that Ruth Bader Ginsburg once lamented had been “halted” by Roe v. Wade regarding abortion, an issue as morally charged and politically unbridgeable as gay marriage. Argument B is more uncompromising: You have the right to marry anyone, regardless of gender. The right to “marriage equality” is today’s civil rights, voting rights and women’s rights – and just as inviolable. Argument B has extremely powerful implications. First, if same-sex marriage is a right, then there is no possible justification for letting

Charles Krauthammer states decide for themselves. How can you countenance even one state outlawing a fundamental right? Indeed, half a century ago, states’ rights was the cry of those committed to continued segregation and discrimination. Second, if marriage equality is a civil right, then denying it on the basis of (innately felt) sexual orientation is, like discrimination on the basis of skin color, simple bigotry. California’s Proposition 8 was overturned by a 9th Circuit panel on the grounds that the referendum, reaffirming marriage as between a man and woman, was nothing but an expression of bias and “serves no purpose ... other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians.” Pretty strong stuff. Which is why it was so surprising that Obama, after first advancing Argument A, went on five days later to adopt Argument B, calling gay marriage a great example of “expand(ing) rights” and today’s successor to civil rights, voting rights, women’s rights and workers’ rights. Problem is: It’s a howling contradiction to leave up to the states an issue Obama now says is a right. And beyond being intellectually untenable, Obama’s embrace of the more hard-line “rights” argument compels him logically to see believers in traditional marriage as purveyors of bigotry. Not a good place for a president to be in an evenly divided national debate that requires both sides to offer each other a modicum

of respect. No wonder that Obama has been trying to get away from the issue as quickly as possible. It’s not just the New York Times poll showing his new position to be a net loser. It’s that he is too intelligent not to realize he’s embraced a logical contradiction. Moreover, there is the problem of the obvious cynicism of his conversion. Two-thirds of Americans see his “evolution” as a matter not of principle but of politics. In fact, the change is not at all an evolution – a teleological term cleverly chosen to suggest movement toward a higher state of being – given that Obama came out for gay marriage 16 years ago. And then flip-flopped. He was pro when running for the Illinois Legislature from ultra-liberal Hyde Park. He became anti when running eight years later for U.S. senator and had to appeal to a decidedly more conservative statewide constituency. And now he’s pro again. When a Republican engages in such finger-to-the-wind political calculation (on abortion, for example), he’s condemned as a flip-flopper. When a liberal goes through a similar gyration, he’s said to have “evolved” into some more highly realized creature, deserving of a halo on the cover of a national newsmagazine. Notwithstanding a comically fawning press, Obama knows he has boxed himself in. His “rights” argument compels him to nationalize same-sex marriage and sharpen hostility to proponents of traditional marriage – a place he is loath to go. True, he was rushed into it by his loquacious vice president. But surely he could have thought this through. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is

It is one thing to talk about “fairness” when it comes to allowing gays and lesbians to marry; it is quite another to claim biblical authority for such relationships. President Obama cited the “Golden Rule” about treating others as you would like to be treated, but in doing so he ignored the totality of Scripture and the Lord Himself, who alone gets to set the rules for human behavior. The president says he is a “practicing Christian.” It is difficult to be one while simultaneously holding a low view of the Bible, which his position on several social issues might suggest. The same Book that informs him about the Person he told Pastor Rick Warren in 2008 is his “Savior,” also speaks to the beginning of human life (he has done nothing to limit abortions), fornication between adults of the opposite sex (no word yet on his position on that subject), marriage, and adultery, which the Seventh Commandment and New Testament passages condemn. I recently wrote that it is becoming increasingly difficult for people who believe the Bible is God’s Word to impose their beliefs on those who disagree with them. But it is something altogether different for those who disagree to claim the Bible doesn’t say what it says, in effect calling God a liar. President Obama apparently hopes there are sufficient numbers of biblical illiterates – and he could be right about this – who either won’t notice his sleight of hand, or don’t care. Thousands of years of human history have sustained marriage between one man and one woman. Even human biology testifies to a natural order. Genesis 2:24 says “...a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife. The two shall become one flesh.” Jesus, Whom President Obama likes to selectively quote when it suits his earthly political agenda, honored traditional marriage at a wedding feast in Cana (John 2:1). He also reaffirmed the Genesis passage in Matthew 19:5. Paul, the Apostle of Jesus, wrote in Ephesians 5 about husbands and wives, male and female. Scripture teaches that the marriage union between a man and woman is an illustration of how Christ and the church are one (Ephesians 5:32). It also teaches that since God made us, conceived of marriage and created sex to be enjoyed within the marital bond, He gets to set the rules and establish the boundaries for human behavior, not because He is a curmudgeon who wants to deny us pleasure, but because He knows what is best for us. Liberal theologians have tried to modify, or even change, what is contained in the Bible and there are those in our time who are following their example with the issue of same-sex marriage. People are free to accept or reject what Scripture says. What they are not free to do is to claim it says something it does not. In modern times that’s called “spin.” In an earlier time it was called heresy. The Apostle John warns in Revelation 22:18-19 about the punishment awaiting anyone who adds to, or subtracts from Scripture. Deuteronomy 4:1-2 has a similar warning. The consequences aren’t pretty. There are also warnings not to preach “another Gospel” (Galatians 1:8, 2 Corinthians 11:4, among others). As he seeks to justify his position on same-sex marriage and other issues that are either questionable at best, or deny Scripture at worst, President Obama might be said to be preaching another gospel. This could possibly lead to a fissure in his solid support among African Americans, costing the president votes in November. It will also likely galvanize the culture warriors. Minorities mostly vote for Democrats, but they don’t like their faith denied. That could cause some of them to stay home on Election Day, or even vote for Mitt Romney. The negative reaction the president received from some of the African-American ministers he called last week after declaring his support for same-sex marriage should serve as a prophetic warning.

‘Intern Hutch’ highlights offerings ■ Program will connect summer

business interns with people and activities in Reno County. BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News

Bailey Stiggins only needs to think back to her summers at home during college to see the potential in a new program the Hutchinson/Reno County Chamber of Commerce is developing, with assistance from Young Professionals of Reno County. “I’m from here, and even when I came home in summer it was a struggle and I couldn’t wait to get back to school,” said Stiggins, community development coordinator at the chamber. “Mostly I didn’t have a connection with young people my age who were at my same point in life. Some were already working or had started a family. They were at a different place than I was.” The purpose of “Intern Hutch” is to connect college-aged summer interns with activities and people in Reno County.

The goal, Stiggins said, is twofold: to provide a quality learning opportunity at an intern’s designated business, and have interns understand the quality of life there is in Reno County for a young professional. “We don’t want the interns to spend the summer just going to work and then watching TV all evening,” Stiggins said. “We want them to be engaged in what’s happening here, meet others their age and, at the end of the summer, say, ‘I could see myself living in Reno County.’ ” Activities for interns will take place at least once a week, usually on a Tuesday or Thursday evening. They will go on group tours of local attractions such as the Cosmosphere, as well as attend professional development trainings. Training topics will vary, but could include such things as how to dress for success, and the dos and don’ts of social media when applying for jobs. Some activities will be far less formal, such as going for a walk on the trails, taking in a Hutchinson Monarchs baseball game, or having

Stiggins said the activities aren’t as important as the relationships the interns will develop as they participate. Volunteers from Young Professionals of Reno County will attend events, too, and be available to mentor the interns. “Right now we’re reaching out to businesses to find the ones that already have summer interns,” Stiggins said. “In the future we’d like to be a connector, to help businesses find a student who’s looking in their field and maybe get them interested in Hutchinson in a way maybe they weren’t before.” The chamber might also assist students in finding housing, she said. She was surprised at the number of internships offered at local busi-

That machine cost, Reffner said, about the same as a new Lexus. “We ship to around 15 to 20 towns, mostly around Hutchinson, but also Wichita and Manhattan,” Denny Reffner said. “It’s been mostly by word of mouth.” The process starts with a logo, picture or phrase loaded into a computer in the shop. That’s transferred to a floppy disk which is

plugged into the embroidery machine. A hoop frame is then attached to the garment and it’s loaded onto the machine, which does the stitching. Nine-year employee Lisa Nisly, who started as a trimmer, now does most of the stitching, said Jan Reffner, who is semi-retired. “She’s so much faster than I am,” Reffner said. “She gets things done quickly.” When the stitching is done, four-year employee Diane Williams removes the frame and trims the stitching on the back, then ensures there are no lose threads. The garment is

then steamed. “She’s our quality control girl,” Denny Reffner said. “Many of our customers are major businesses and they don’t mess around with their logos. We have to make it right. Every garment is trimmed and checked.” Denny Reffner does the ordering, billing and shipping for the company, “and we always meet our delivery dates,” he said. While most logos come pre-created, the company can design or customize a logo for a customer, Reffner said. Also, they don’t just do embroidery, but screen printing and transfer prints.

Supply ● From Page B1 The sale of the business to its new owner, Gary Newcome, was “kind of a fluke,” Stewart said, in that Newcome “was dabbling in the jan-san business and heard about Janitorial Supply. He walked in off the street and asked Fred if he was interested in selling.” After conferring with his family, Blick agreed to the sale, which occurred in January. The business will move to 1535 W. Fourth Ave., in the former Foy Construction building, once remodeling is complete. The building already houses another business owned by Newcome, Ark Valley Roofing. “He’s taking a bunch of offices that are not in use to create a new showroom,” Stewart said. “There’s also a big warehouse behind the building. We outgrew this building a long time ago. Now there will be a lot more room for both display and inventory.” The showroom floor itself will be at least 3,000 square

The longtime family-owned Janitorial Supply business will be able to expand its inventory and offerings at its new location. feet, Stewart said – nearly half the floor space of the entire existing business. “We’re very excited about the move,” Stewart said, noting the business will also offer “front-door parking.” Newcome was not available Friday to talk about his plans, but Stewart said staff will likely expand after the move. The business now employs

four people full time, including Stewart and her sister, Tina Baker, and three parttime, including Fred as a consultant. The move won’t occur until remodeling of the new location is complete, likely around the first of August, Stewart said. Blick plans to sell the Sherman and Main building.

nesses, Stiggins said, and she hopes to have a group of 12 to 15 interns participate this summer. “That will be a nice sized group for any activity we want to do,” she said. “However, there’s always room for more.” The diversity of businesses offering internships, from nonprofit to recreation, manufacturing to professional, also surprised her, Stiggins said. That will make for a varied group of interns, and expose them all to the diversity of job opportunities in Reno County. The program launches at 5:30 p.m. June 5 with an orientation at the Chamber of Commerce. Employers wishing to see a complete schedule of summer activities may contact the chamber. “It’s something the Young Professionals have been talking about doing for a really long time, but they never had the staff person to make the push,” Stiggins said. “I’m glad we’re able to put it in motion.” For more information on the Intern Hutch program, contact Stiggins at

Raptor haven The Eagle Valley Raptor Center, located 20 miles west of Wichita near Cheney, offers scheduled guided tours. The center’s main mission is to provide food, shelter and veterinary care to Kansas birds of prey so they may return back to the wild. Director Ken Lockwood can be contacted at his website Ken Lockwood holds “Turnpike,” a male American Kestrel, who was found by the Wellington turnpike, raised by humans and arrived at the center after staying for a time at the Hutchinson Zoo. Kestrels are one of the few birds of prey that you can tell their gender by their color.

“WaSu,” a 12-year-old male bald eagle, looks over his flight pen at Eagle Valley Raptor Center. ‘WaSu’ is an educational bird used at the center because his left wing was wounded by a gun shot and he cannot be released back into the wild.

“Durango,” an African Eagle Owl stretches his wings while he is perched on Lockwood’s glove.

A three-year-old female bald eagle named “Lena” lands on Lockwood’s glove in her flight pen. Lena will not get her white head and tail until she turns around the age of five years old. The eyes of “Durango,” the African Eagle Owl, are different in that they are orange instead of yellow like the Great Horned Owl.

Lockwood built a bald eagle’s nest at the center. He calls it a “studio apartment-sized” nest because eagle’s nests can get a lot larger. In Kansas, eagles build their nests usually in cottonwood trees along rivers and lakes. Large eagle’s nests can be 2000 to 3000 pounds, 10 to 12 feet deep and 6 to 8 feet across because the eagles use the same nest every year and just add on to it.

Man gives scam alert Editor’s note: Each week, Hutchinson News reporters find pieces of news while working on producing daily news stories. These stories about the people and places that make up our communities will be printed in Ad Astra. Send your ideas to or call (620) 694-5700, ext. 331. A letter that Hutchinson resident Jonathan Ledin received in the mail recently informed him he was a winner of a “customer reward draw” for customers of WalMart, Sears, Home Depot, Safeway and ASDA. The letter said he was entitled to a “guaranteed sum of $50,000,” and an enclosed check for $2,950 was part of the prize and would enable him to “offset the statutory non-British resident tax payment of $1,950.” He was encouraged in the letter – which had a company name of “Aflac-Payment Alliance International” on top – to call the listed phone number. “I called and played dumb, and they told me to cash the check,” Ledin said. He wants people to know it’s a scam. Ledin took the check to his bank and showed bank employees the letter, and “they knew it was a scam right off the bat,” he said. “I received a phony check a few years ago, but this one looked better,” he said, holding up the check. “It makes it look pretty legitimate.” Ledin said he reported the phony check to authorities but wants other residents to be aware of the scam. – Darcy Gray Lots of valedictorians Six seniors at Sterling High School and five seniors at Haven High School capped their high school careers this month with unblemished grades. Compiling a perfect 4.0 at Haven were: Rebecca Blackburn, Torrie Rhodes, Austin Shafer, Tayton Trent and Megan Yoder. They represented about 8 percent of the graduating class. They weren’t the only students earning honors, either. About 43 percent of Haven’s graduates finished with at least a 3.5 grade-point average. Sterling High has produced multiple valedictorians previously, but the Class of 2012 set a record with six valedictorians, out of a class of just under 40 students. Sharing top honors were: Jared Cullop, Taylor Fair, Molly Foster, Keaton Prather, Hannah Spittler and Nicole Taylor. – Mary Clarkin Pet project A fundraiser Saturday during the St. John Jubilee will help send three 4-H members to the United Kennel Club’s Junior National Dog Show in Kalamazoo, Mich.

They will have their dogs with them and will show off their skills if asked. Klamm is ranked 21st in the nation in UKC junior agility and sixth in junior obedience with his miniature Australian Shepherd named Captain Patch. Ossola is ranked 24th in the nation in UKS junior agility with her Border Collie named Tilly, who has multiple titles in UKS and American Kennel Club agility and is within 50 points of her UKC Champion Title, according to the Stafford County 4-H Dog Club.

St. Rose joins Midwest Cancer Alliance Local cancer patients will be the main beneficiaries of a new partnership that allows even more services here in the community. St. Rose Ambulatory & Surgery Center has become a member of the Midwest Cancer Alliance (MCA), a statewide organization that provides local access to the latest advancements. “We are very excited to bring top-notch protocols and research opportunities to Great Bend,” said Claudia Perez-Tamayo, radiation oncologist at Heartland Cancer Center, which is part of the St. Rose family. “This association with MCA dovetails very well with the high level of patient care we have in Great Bend.” Patients now may participate in national protocols with the University of Kansas Cancer Center, as well as Phase I and Phase II clinical trials and research, Perez-Tamayo said. MCA links discoveries made in KU labs to a regionwide network of health care facilities in an effort to advance the quality and reach of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship methods, Hope Krebill, MCA executive director, said.

She outlined a few of the main benefits of MCA membership to St. Rose. They are: access to clinical trials, including new trials developed at KU; access to an established network of cancer professionals; more continuing professional education without travel; and access to consultation and second opinion services through interactive televideo (ITV) in Great Bend. “The community now has access to support groups, advanced clinical trials and cancer prevention programs close to home,” Krebill said. “For the patient, a cancer diagnosis is difficult enough, without adding the burden of travel.” St. Rose is the newest of 16 MCA members throughout Kansas and western Missouri.

“Flat Spin” (The Permanent Press), by David Freed “Flat Spin,” the title of this debut thriller, is the name of a complex and risky flight maneuver that only the most accomplished pilots should attempt, so it’s no surprise that the hero of the story, Cordell Logan, is a first-rate aviator. He’s also a former assassin for a top-secret military squad that specializes in making terrorists disappear. As the story opens, Logan is living in a converted garage in Rancho Bonita, Calif., where he is scraping out a living by giving flying lessons to spoiled rich kids. He’s haunted by his past, longing for his beautiful exwife, Savannah, and failing miserably – and hilariously – to find peace through his recent conversion to Buddhism. When Savannah’s new husband, another former assassination squad member, is gunned down, Logan has a very un-Buddhist reaction: He’s elated. But his mood quickly evaporates when he finds himself a suspect. So Logan sets out to solve the case himself. He takes to the air in “The Ruptured Duck,” his Cessna 172, following the killer’s trail from Oakland, Calif., to the Las Vegas

Strip, from the Arizona desert to Russian Mafia haunts in West Los Angeles. Eventually, he gets too close to the surprising truth and is targeted for murder. The way Logan sees it, being in danger and suspected of murder are the least of his troubles. He is consumed by his longing for Savannah, the pain made so real that your own heart will ache. When you write your first thriller, it’s wise to stick with what you know, and Freed knows this turf. He covered police for the Los Angeles Times, where he shared in the Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the Rodney King riots. He reported from Kuwait and Iraq during Operation Desert Storm. He wrote computerized training simulations for the Defense Intelligence Agency. He holds a security clearance from the Department of Defense. And he’s a pilot who owns his own airplane. Unlike some novelists with technical expertise, Freed is a superb writer. His prose is at once muscular and musical – and sometimes verges on poetry. And he mixes a hard-boiled attitude with flashes of wry humor. The riveting plot and fine prose are sure to make “Flat Spin” one of the best debuts of 2012.

Your gap Productive year off requires well thought-out plan BY BETH J. HARPAZ Associated Press

ap years are all the rage, and the rationales are many: Take a year off between high school and college to work, travel, learn a language or skill, or volunteer. Gap years can be “excellent opportunities for students to mature, follow a passion, or scratch an itch they’ve got, and return a year later,” said Houston Dougharty, vice president of student affairs at Grinnell College in Iowa. But Dougharty says there are pitfalls: “I’ve also seen cases where a student has taken a gap year and not used the time effectively, and found it has not helped them either in terms of maturing or developing skills or being more ready for college.” Organized gap-year programs can also cost as much as a year of college. “Like other educational fashion trends out there, this one is being stoked by well-organized business interests masquerading as idealistic facilitators of a new movement,” warned Barmak Nassirian, spokesman for the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers. Here are some things students and parents should keep in mind when considering a gap year. Disruption to college plans: Many gap year students apply to college as high school seniors, then defer enrollment for a year. But not all end up back in college. Because of that, Tulane University this year upped its nonrefundable deposit to hold a freshman spot for a year from $300 to $1,000. The university in New Orleans is also, for the first time, requiring gap-year students to fill out a separate application detailing their plans, including “what you hope to gain by deferring your admission.” “We’ve had students taking a gap year who didn’t come back, so we really want to make sure they have a well thought-out plan and that they are fully committed to returning to college,” said Jeffrey Schiffman, Tulane’s senior associate director of admission. He says Tulane typically gets 15 to 25 gap year students in each incoming class of 1,650 freshmen and has “definitely” seen an increase in gap year requests in recent years. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, among students graduating high school in 2003, 44 percent who went straight to college got their bachelor’s degree within six years. But among those who delayed college for a year after high school – whether to take a formal “gap year” or because of obstacles like finances or family issues – only about 15 percent had their bachelor’s degree within six years. Beatriz Zayas, a counselor at Southwest High School in El Centro, Calif., works with students who are “first-generation, low-income, and English language learners, and most of the time when our


students take a gap year, it’s for financial reasons – to work full time, to attend to health issues, or to take care of family.” Some students who start work may never resume their schooling. “It is too difficult to go into the working world and switch back into education,” said Sallie McMullin, dean of admissions at Longwood University, a state school in Farmville, Va. She urges students who work during a gap year to “keep your foot in the door at school by taking a course at a community college, because once you start making money, it’s hard to go backwards. If there’s any income involved or too much relaxation with a lot of downtime, they can’t get the study habits back again.” Planning, costs and reentry: Sally Rubenstone, who writes the “Ask the Dean” column for the popular site, says “poor planning is the biggest gap-year pitfall.” Her advice: “Map out a careful blueprint of the year to come. Be specific. For instance, while a paying job can be a good way to fill hours, to make money for college down the road, and to possibly learn new skills, what happens at the end of the work day, when the night is still young and there is no homework to do? And if travel is on the docket, is there a realistic budget in place?” Gap-year programs – including some that are among the most highly recommended by school administrators – can be expensive. The National Outdoor Leadership School, which teaches outdoor skills through extended backcountry trips, charges $12,000 to $19,000 for a semester, depending on location. Carpe Diem Education, which offers service programs in developing countries, charges $8,900 to $11,900 depending on location, plus airfare, for a semester. Shari Hindman took out a

$10,000 loan to help her daughter pay for a $30,000 international program called LeapNow that included an internship at a birthing center in Indonesia. “This was a huge investment for us but it was really worth it,” said Hindman, whose daughter will now enter a formal midwife-training program in North Carolina. Gap years don’t have to empty your bank account, though. Some students volunteer while living at home. Those who take part in AmeriCorps – the domestic Peace Corps – get a living allowance. Rebecca Hamm Conard, now a rising junior at Rice University in Houston, worked full-time for a few months during her gap year to pay for a trip around Europe for the rest of the year. What a gap year is not: McMullin, the Longwood dean, says gap years are not a good way to improve your academic standing. “The gap year does not replace grades and test scores and other requirements of the institution,” she emphasized. “For college admissions, the student still is presented with the same academic record and the same test scores.” Scott White says virtually all the gap year students he’s dealt with as a counselor at Montclair High School in New Jersey have had “good results” and continued on to college. But he cautioned against parents signing up troubled kids for gap year programs, noting that two of eight students were sent home from a gap year trip his daughter took in Central America. These types of “programs are not good options for kids with substance abuse issues that are not under control. As structured as they are, the students spend a lot of time only being supervised by their host families and there is plenty of opportunity to find trouble if you are looking for it,” White said.

Dear Annie: Five months ago, I met “Abby” at my job. We have a lot in common and have become close. We flirt with each other. Here’s the problem. Abby is 41, and I am 20. She looks and acts much younger. Abby is in a terrible relationship with her narcissistic soon-to-be ex-husband “Dave.” They have two young children. Dave is jealous and domineering and doesn’t want a divorce. He has every phone and computer in their household bugged and has had Abby followed and spied on over the years. She uses disposable phones so that he can’t listen in on her conversations. Abby is certain that Dave has cheated on her multiple times, but has no proof. He has turned many members of her family against her by lying that she’s been unfaithful. He also holds all the money. Many times Abby has to leave the house at night and sleep

Annie’s Mailbox

Kathy Mitchell, Marcy Sugar in her car. The only way she could have a life after a divorce would be to cut all ties with her children and move away with me. I care deeply for Abby and want to help her. I’d be willing to move out of state with her. What do you think? – Dead End Dear End: The age gap is not your biggest problem. It’s the fact that you are only 20. You don’t have enough life experience to tie yourself to a still-married woman with two young children, an unsupportive family and a husband who sounds abusive and threatening. If Abby had your best interests at heart, she would not lean so heavily

I will not go through the expense of coming to the party. I will, however, give her the promised gift once she gets her diploma. I’m sure my absence will raise questions and possibly cause resentment from her parents. Do you think I should go through the travel expense and attend the party? – Grandmother with Principles Dear Grandmother: If you consider the party to be a celebration of her diploma, rather than of the four years she spent completing high school, you should not go. The parents likely will tell those who question your absence that it was too great an expense or inconvenience. However, if you would feel bad and later question your decision, you may as well attend. Consider the party an “early” graduation celebration, since your generous gift will undoubtedly provide an incentive for her to finish.

Dear Annie: You hit the nail on the head with your advice to “Former Sister.” I was in a similar situation with my sister. Although things were not great between us, I chose to accept her as she was. I’m so glad I did, because four years ago, at the age of 46, she was killed in a car accident. My world hasn’t been the same since. You never know when someone you love may suddenly be gone from your life forever. – Still Miss Her Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Treehouse ministry a support for mothers in need BY ANNIE CALOVICH The Associated Press

WICHITA – Two months ago, Sarah Trent’s boyfriend told her to get out of his apartment with her 5-monthold son. She didn’t have a job, because he had wanted her to be a stay-at-home mom. She was 22 years old and didn’t have a car or any money. The one thing she did have was the phone number of a woman who she’d heard speak about her own tough past. Trent had approached the woman after her talk to a Christian group, and they had started talking on the phone and texting. The woman was Melody Matulewic, 42, a wife, mother, and the marketing director for Scholfield Auto Plaza in Wichita. She’s also a volunteer at the Treehouse, a ministry that serves 400 needy mothers a year with emotional and material support. Matulewic runs a boot camp at the Treehouse – not one of those boot camps that promises muscular gain through pain, but a spiritual and practical strengthening of women learning to be bet-

ter mothers. The role fits her well: Matulewic talks fast and makes demands like a drill sergeant. Life is short, she says, and lives are at stake. On that night in March, when Trent called her with nowhere to go, there had already been a desire in Matulewic to do more for women in trouble. At the Treehouse’s boot camp – before she asks young mothers who may be suffering from poverty, abuse, snatched parental rights, promiscuity or just plain bad luck to drop and give her their best effort – she tells them that, as a girl, she was sexually abused for nine years. That at age 18 she found herself alone with $24 in her pocket. That she had to drop out of college. But also that she went on, with good advice, to eventually start her own advertising agency. To get married and have children. To be in a position to help those sitting in front of her to follow her path up and out. “I’ve always been trying to find out a way to help survivors of abuse and women who have hardships,” said


on you and put you at risk. You can best help her by encouraging her to contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline ( at 1800-799-SAFE (1-800-799-7233). Dear Annie: Invitations already have gone out for a graduation party for my granddaughter. She lives across the country, and it will cost me $500 to travel there. I do not have a lot of money, but I promised I would give her $500 when she received her high school diploma. There is now a good chance she won’t pass one required subject and will have to go to summer school. Out of embarrassment, her parents are still planning to have the party and not tell anyone that the graduation is not official. I have written my granddaughter, urging her to work as hard as necessary to pass all of her subjects by the end of the semester. I indicated that if she does not achieve her goals by the first of June,


Matulewic, who also runs Divas for Hope, a program of healing and prevention of abuse. “Failure’s not an option in my vocabulary.” When Trent arrived at her home wearing a nose ring, three colors dyed into her hair and bright pink nail polish, “I said, ‘This all has to go.’ I said, ‘If you walked into my dealership, I would not hire you.’?” Matulewic and her husband, Doug, gave Trent 60 days to accomplish four goals: find a car, affordable day care, a job and an apartment. While Trent was grateful, she had a lot to learn. She wanted to sleep in occasionally, for example, if the baby was still sleeping. “Nobody’s told her, you don’t have time to sleep today,” Matulewic said. “You gotta be up and be a mom. Let’s go.” Trent found it hard at times, but like a good bootcamper, she got up and got going. “They taught me from the ground up,” she said. “We’d sit here at night and they’d practice interviewing with me. I’ve never been told what to do in a job interview.”

The Treehouse is a mother-to-mother effort sponsored by Orthodox Christian Ministries that started 10 years ago. It offers mothers instruction in mothering, relationships and finances, as well as spiritual and emotional support, diapers and other necessities. Because of the high level of need, the Treehouse requires mothers to be referred from one of a handful of agencies, and it has run out of room to grow in its building. “We do turn people away,” Croitoru said, “and we’re always questioning quality versus quantity. But we keep coming back to quality. In her boot camp at the Treehouse, Matulewic helps mothers “try to identify with what do they continue to keep doing, what do they need to do to see past hurts and soften their hearts and make some changes in themselves,” she said. As Trent settled into a more regimented life at the Matulewic house, “it was just scary,” she said. “I thought some days, ‘I don’t want to go for an interview.?’ ” But Matulewic had put out

the word to friends, and more help started heading Trent’s way. Within two weeks, she had a car through a donation from someone at the Treehouse. The Matulewics paid for needed repairs. Then a friend of Melody’s who babysits offered to baby-sit for virtually nothing. All the work on learning how to interview for a job paid off when Trent got an interview with Doug Matulewic’s company, Wichita Surgical Specialists, and then was offered a job as a medical records specialist. They love her, and she loves them. Finally, last Wednesday, with her 60 days almost up, Trent put a deposit down on an apartment. Friday night, the garage door at the Matulewic home was raised to reveal donated furnishings. Trent bawled. She moved into her apartment Saturday, just in time for her first Mother’s Day with her baby. “It’s been wonderful,” Trent said of the transformation. “I couldn’t have asked for better people to help.”

Cheaper gas not enough to boost travel BY CHRIS KAHN AND SAMANTHA BOMKAMP The Associated Press

NEW YORK – Cheaper gas won’t be enough to get many more Americans on the road this summer. They’re still too worried about their jobs and the economy. Economists and tourism experts are expecting only a small uptick in summer travelers. Gas prices are lower, but still high enough to keep some Americans off the road. The job market is improving, but still shaky. And household debt remains high. Those who do travel won’t feel free to splurge. The bulk of road trippers, experts say, will take shorter trips and reduce food and entertainment spending to conserve cash. “Travel is about security,” said John Larson, Vice President for IHS Global Insight, the firm that analyzed the AAA study. “If you feel less secure about your future, you may be less willing to take this trip.” For Memorial Day weekend, auto club AAA estimates that 34.8 million Americans will take trips of at least 50 miles. That’s a half-million more than Memorial Day 2011 but equal to the number who traveled two years ago. Roughly 30.7

Costco customers fill up gas as others wait in line for gas at a Costco gas station in Santa Clara, Calif. Cheaper gas won’t be enough to spur many more road trips this summer. Americans are too worried about their jobs and the economy to feel relief. Economists and tourism experts are expecting only a small uptick in summer travelers. million – or 88 percent of those traveling – will drive, up 1.2 percent from last year, AAA says. Memorial Day tends to be a good indicator of summer travel overall. Gas prices may keep some low-wage earners home. But for the most part, Americans will buck up for gas, assuming they can afford to take a trip in the first place.

Douglas Frechtling, chair of the Department of Tourism and Hospitality Management at George Washington University, says broader economic concerns far outweigh gas prices for most Americans when considering summer vacations. Slowing job growth is likely rattling some families, and rent, car payments and oth-

SUMMER TRAVEL FACTS History Summer has always been a popular time for Americans to skip town. While president, Thomas Jefferson was famous for spending most of the summer at Monticello. Working Americans didn’t take summer breaks in earnest until the 19th century, however, when doctors started recommending relaxation as an important way to stay healthy.

Gas prices The national average for gas is $3.727. At that price, a 400 mile trip in a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu would cost about $45.17 . ● The good news: gas has gotten cheaper.

er bills take priority over vacation. Gas was averaging around $3.85 per gallon when AAA spoke with 315 would-be travelers from April 20 to 24. The survey showed that those making under $50,000 a year will make up about a quarter of all Memorial Day travelers, down from nearly a third a

year ago. Higher gas prices eat up a larger share of lower-income families’ household budgets. AAA says the 66 cent increase in the average gas price from January through early April made many people skittish about taking long road trips. The average trip will be 642 miles this Memorial Day, compared with 792 miles. Half of those surveyed said they’ll travel less than 400 miles. Some travelers will drive this summer because they can’t afford to fly. Jennifer Padilla of Santa Fe, N.M., says her family is shelving a planned trip overseas this summer with family because her husband took a pay cut. Instead, the couple, their 3-year-old son and a friend will visit the sites in Bryce Canyon and Monument Valley, Utah, in their Honda CRV. The average roundtrip domestic airfare this summer is expected to be up 9 percent to 10 percent from last year, according to Travelzoo. That’s on top of a 5 to 7 percent increase between 2010 and 2011. AAA estimates that 5.5 percent fewer people will travel by plane this Memorial Day. The industry trade group Airlines for America is somewhat more optimistic about summer as a whole, predicting a slight

0.2 percent decrease in air travelers. AAA and IHS found that Americans with incomes over $100,000 a year will make up a greater percentage of travelers than a year ago – 36 percent compared with 30 percent. Middle-income Americans will account for 38 percent, down from 39 percent. Families will carefully budget travel spending. Sixty-five percent of Memorial Day travelers surveyed by AAA say they’ll cut back on entertainment costs during the weekend. Spending per person is expected to rise just $10, to $702, although falling gas prices could give travelers a few extra bucks to spend. The U.S. Travel Association estimates Americans will spend about $725.4 billion on travel this year, up 3 percent from 2011, but less than half the increase between 2010 and 2011. Frechtling says about half of all trips are taken in the summer and the period accounts for about 40 percent of the year’s spending.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Billy Butler and Mike Moustakas homered, Bruce Chen won his third straight start and the Kansas City Royals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-3 Saturday night. Butler homered to left-center in the third with Alcides Escobar aboard. Butler also drove in Jarrod Dyson with a sacrifice fly in Kansas City’s two-run fifth.

right-field bullpen in the fourth. Chen, who has won three straight after starting the season 0-4, weaved his way into and out of trouble the first four innings. The Diamondbacks had two runners on in each of the first four frames but failed to score, going 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position in that span. Jason Kubel led off the Diamondbacks’ second with a double and stopped at third on Paul Goldschmidt’s single. After Chen struck out Cody Ransom, Ryan Roberts flied out to center and Dyson threw out Kubel at the plate for an inning-ending double play. Chen was chased during Arizona’s two-run seventh, giving up two runs on eight hits and two

walks in 6 1-3 innings. In winning his past three starts, Chen has yielded six earned runs in 19 1-3 innings for a 2.79 ERA. Diamondbacks right-hander Ian Kennedy (3-4) lost his fourth straight May start, giving up six runs on eight hits and a walk in 4 1-3 innings before being replaced by Mike Zagurski. In his past four starts, Kennedy has a 5.92 ERA, allowing 16 earned runs on 22 hits, including five home runs, in 24 1-3 innings. Goldschmidt and Roberts doubled for the first Arizona run.

Ups, downs of coaching in baseball Rich Krol has had bad losses. You don’t coach baseball for 35 years – high school baseball, mind you, where inconsistency is the only consistency – without experiencing your share of bad losses. It comes with the territory. And you hope those bad losses don’t permanently alter a coach’s demeanor. Baseball’s foundation, you see, is built on failure. The best hitters fail seven of every 10 trips to the plate. The best teams lose about one-third of their games. But most of those losses can be easily explained, which makes them at least somewhat palatable because finding a cause gives a coach something to work on, something to prevent disaster from happening the next time. “That’s coaching,” said Krol, Nickerson’s longtime baseball coach whose Panthers advanced to the Kansas Class 4A tournament Wednesday with two solid pitching performances in Hoisington. “That’s baseball.”

Kentucky Derby winner again makes a comeback, has shot at Triple Crown BY RICHARD ROSENBLATT

“We’re thinking Triple Crown, baby,” an elated trainer Doug O’Neill said. “He’s a special horse. We’ll see how he comes out of it, and if he comes out of it in good shape, we’re heading to New York, baby.” It’s been 34 years since Affirmed swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont and became the 11th and most recent Triple Crown champion. Since then, 11 horses have won the first two legs only to come up short in the Belmont. The most recent try came in 2008, when Big Brown was pulled up around the turn for home and did not finish. Before that, Smarty Jones was run down in the final 70 yards by Birdstone in the 2004 Belmont. With the two victories thrusting the colorful and controversial O’Neill squarely into the limelight, scrutiny is sure to intensify about his violations for giving his horses improper drugs. He was fined $1,000 and suspended 15 days in

Fee scores all 24 of Hutch’s state swimming points ■ Salthawk senior goes out in style with 19th place team finish - all by herself. BY LUCAS FAHRER The Hutchinson News

TOPEKA - Kathleen Fee ended her high school swimming career knowing she could compete at the highest level. And did so by single-handedly scoring all 24 of Hutchinson’s points in their 19th-place finish at the 6A swimming and diving state tournament at Capitol Federal Natatorium. Granted, it wasn’t the way the Salthawk senior wanted to go out. After entering the state tournament as the No. 2 seed in the 100-yard breaststroke, Fee emerged as the No. 3 seed out of Friday’s preliminaries before falling to fourth in the tight final race. Overland ParkBlue Valley North’s Grace Stafford swam to first-place in one-minute, 8.03 seconds, barely edging Wichita Southeast’s Emily Chesser (1:08.04) and Washburn Rural’s Molly Christensen (1:08.06). Fee was not far behind (1:08.63). “It was a good race,” Hutchinson coach Rene’ Sullivan said of Fee, who finished sixth in the event at last year’s state tournament. “It was just even through the whole thing until just at


BALTIMORE – I’ll Have Another waited a little longer to catch Bodemeister in the stretch this time, and now that he’s done it twice in a row it’s time for a Triple Crown try in the Belmont Stakes. With a breathtaking closing rush, the smooth-striding colt won the Preakness Stakes by a neck at Pimlico Race Course on a sunny Saturday, a nail-biter of a finish that topped his win two weeks ago in the Kentucky Derby. The race unfolded the same way as the Derby, with the speedy Bodemeister moving to the lead under Mike Smith, with I’ll Have Another hanging back in fourth in the 11-horse field. The early fractions were slower than the Derby, but when it came time for Bodemeister to hang on, I’ll Have Another found another gear under young jockey Mario Gutierrez and ran down trainer Bob Baffert’s horse in the shadow of the wire.

Spurs dig deep to rally, push Clippers to brink of elimination BY BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES – Nothing was going to rattle the calm, cool and collected Spurs. Not even a 24-point deficit. Tim Duncan scored 19 points, helping engineer a defining 24-0 run in the third quarter, and San Antonio defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 96-86 on Saturday to take a commanding 3-0 lead in their second-round playoff series. “We didn’t plan on being down that much,” said Duncan, who at 36 is hungry to win the

team’s fifth NBA championship and first since 2006-07. “We stuck with it.” Led by Tony Parker’s 23 points and his defense on an ailing Chris Paul, the Spurs kept running their plays even as Blake Griffin’s early offensive assault buried them in a huge hole. Griffin missed three shots in the first half, when he scored 20 points and carried his team to a 24-point lead despite a left hip injury and a sprained right knee. “They came out like we expected, very strong. Blake was making crazy shots,” Parker

said. “We just took our time. It’s a long game, a very long game. At halftime, we were very calm.” Griffin had 28 points and 16 rebounds, and reserve Mo Williams added 19 points for the Clippers, who face some daunting NBA history heading into Game 4 on Sunday at Staples Center. No team has rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a series. “If we don’t play with that sense of urgency, it’s not going to be pretty,” Griffin said. The Clippers played a mustwin Game 7 in the opening

round on the road at Memphis and succeeded. “We have to keep fighting,” Paul said. Rookie Kawhi Leonard added 14 points and Manu Ginobili 13 to help the top-seeded Spurs win their 17th in a row and improve to 7-0 in the playoffs. “We all struggled in the first quarter. We didn’t feel right out there,” said Duncan, who like his teammates, looked to Parker to pick the team up. “We follow his lead. He stuck

Team Penske back on Indy 500 pole Nickerson will face BY MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS – Roger Penske’s strategy beat Michael Andretti’s team by inches Saturday – 9.168 inches to be exact. In the closest pole duel in Indianapolis 500 history, Team Penske sent points leader Will Power onto the track with two minutes left in the Pole Day shootout – a shrewd move that prevented three Andretti drivers from taking one last shot at the pole and preserving the No. 1 starting spot for Ryan Briscoe It was a remarkable finish on a wild afternoon. Briscoe was the surprise winner with a four-lap average of 226.484 mph. He completed the 10-mile qualification run 0.0023 seconds quicker than James Hinchcliffe. The previous record was set in 1970 when Al Unser edged Johnny Rutherford by 0.01 seconds over the four-lap qualifying run. “My name will go down forever for something that I won here at the Indy 500,” Briscoe said after claiming his first Indy pole after narrowly missing in 2008, 2009 and 2010. This one will go straight into the record book. How close was the battle on Indy’s historic 2.5-mile oval? Everybody had an answer. When Hinchcliffe left the post-race news conference, Briscoe held his fingers about an inch apart and explained it was that close. Hinchcliffe knew better. “It’s a gust of wind, it’s a shadow over a part of the track,” Hinchcliffe said, before holding up his name card and explaining that was the distance. “I’m going to lose a little bit of sleep at how small the margin was to Ryan.” Eventually a series spokesman came in and blurted out the actual dis-

Johnson cruises to 3rd win in NASCAR All-Star race BY JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

CONCORD, N.C. – Jimmie Johnson won his third All-Star race on Saturday night by pulling away over the 10-lap sprint to the $1 million prize. Johnson joins Dale Earnhardt and Jeff Gordon as the only three-time winner in All-Star race history. His other victories were in 2003 and 2006. Johnson won the first 20-lap segment of the Sprint All-Star race, then tance right down to the thousandth of an inch. Nobody knows how to play this game better than Penske and he proved it again Saturday. The iconic racing owner has won five of the last seven poles at Indy and extended his own Indy record to 17 poles. Briscoe is the 11th driver to win a pole for The Captain, and it comes one week before Penske celebrates the 40th anniversary of his first career Indy win 1972. He’ll get a shot at win No. 12 here May 27. As usual, Penske didn’t rely on conventional wisdom. Penske’s three drivers – Briscoe, three-time Indy winner Helio Castroneves and Power, the points leader – spent most of this week just trying to crack the top 10 of the speed charts. Some around Gasoline Alley thought the only IndyCar team to win a pole or a race this season was sandbagging. Maybe it was. When Castroneves arrived at the track Saturday morning, it didn’t

cruised around the back of the field for the next three segments at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He was the first driver allowed down pit road before the fifth and final segment, and beat everyone else back on track following the mandatory pit stop. Johnson had a great restart, and runner-up Brad Keselowski had no chance to catch him. Matt Kenseth finished third and was followed by Kyle Busch and Earnhardt. take him long to top 227 mph in the early morning practice, and once qualifying began, it quickly became apparent this would be a twoteam race between Penske’s drivers and the resurgent Andretti team. Still, most thought the battle would be waged between Castroneves and Marco Andretti, Power and Ryan Hunter-Reay or some combination of the four. It turned out to be Hinchcliffe who created the most tension for Briscoe, who started putting his gloves back on after Hinchcliffe ran a 227.009 warm-up lap. When Hinchcliffe’s first qualifying attempt in the shootout ended just short, Briscoe pumped his fists and started trading high-fives with crew members. The scene played out about one hour later when the track was closed. “I don’t know how many times I’ve been here and I’ve been in both those seats before and the next thing I know, Helio goes out and goes

1 mph quicker than everyone,” Briscoe said. “I’m just glad it’s my time.” Penske made sure of it. With only minutes left in qualifying, Power took one final shot at earning his first Indy pole. He wasn’t quick enough to claim it, he stayed on the track long enough to protect Briscoe. “It’s just that sort of place,” Power said. “I think in 2010, Helio punched out a megatime, I think 28.0. Where did that time come from, you know?” This time, Briscoe turned the tables on his teammate and the rest of the Indy field. And it was Andretti’s team that made the big splash. After last May’s debacle in which Danica Patrick and Marco Andretti nearly missed making the race, Mike Conway failed to qualify and Ryan Hunter-Reay only got back into the field by jumping into one of A.J. Foyt’s car, Andretti Autosport rebounded by taking three of the top four starting spots and putting the most pressure on Briscoe. “There’s three Andretti’s in the top four, you tell me?” Hinchcliffe said when asked if Michael Andretti’s team is ready to make this championship a three-team race. The replacement for Patrick in the Go Daddy car is starting second, the middle of Row 1 with a qualifying speed of 226.481. Hunter-Reay will start on the outside of Row 1 after going 226.240, and Andretti will start on the inside of Row 2 with a speed of 225.456. Power and Castroneves close out Row 2. Rookie Josef Newgarden, from Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing, was the slowest of the shootout qualifiers at 224.037 and will start seventh. He’s the highest qualifying rookie since Danica Patrick was fourth in 2005.

NBA ● From Page D1 with it, made some big shots down the stretch and continued to attack,” Duncan said. “He was playing defense really hard and got up into Chris.” Besides Parker, the Spurs threw two other defenders at Paul. He finished with 12 points and 11 assists after two previous sub-par efforts in the series. “Tony really ran the show well,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “I’d say, ‘Let’s do this’ and he said, ‘No, let’s do this,’ and we’d do it.” After a quiet first half in which he scored eight points, Duncan helped the Spurs control the third quarter when they outscored Los Angeles 26-8. The Spurs took their first lead during the 24-0 run on a fadeaway jumper by Duncan, who scored nine points in the outburst that put them ahead for good. Danny Green added seven and Leonard five. “We kept telling Kawhi and Danny to stay calm,” Parker said. The Clippers’ defense completely faltered and they piled up miss after miss on the offensive end. “When they spread the floor and Tim Duncan runs a high pick-and-roll, it’s trouble for a lot of teams,” Griffin said. “That’s basically what killed us in the third. This is what they do best.” The Clippers scored the final four points of the third, which ended with a turnover by Williams, to trail 69-61 heading into the fourth. “You knew they were going to make a run. It was just a matter of trying to withstand it,” Griffin said. “In the second half, especially the third quarter, we did a poor job of responding.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, right, goes up for a dunk as San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan defends during the first half Saturday in Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal game in Los Angeles. “I missed some shots I hit in the first half, easy shots.” San Antonio led by 11 points early in the fourth before the Clippers got within seven on consecutive baskets by Williams. Gary Neal hit a 3-pointer to launch a 13-9 spurt, capped by Parker’s 3pointer, that extended the Spurs’ lead to 89-78. Paul, so dominant in the final period during the regular season, was limited to four points. “I felt like we were playing good, but if you know anything about the Spurs, you know they are not going to let up,” Paul said. “Everybody knows how explosive the Spurs are, but we just could not get a stop.” Reggie Evans, a defensive spark for the Clippers off the bench, missed 6 of 8 free throws in the final 3:42. “They play the same whether they’re up 20 or down 20,” Griffin said of the

Swimming ● From Page D1 the end. “She wanted to go out doing her best and she did. I’m really proud of her.” Fee came into state as the No. 11 seed in the 200- individual medley and fell just short of the top eight with a ninthplace swim in the prelims. On Saturday, Fee won the consolation finals (2:19.45) and would’ve beat Derby’s Alyssa Newbury for eighth place in the championship final. Nevertheless, Fee capped her senior

veteran Spurs. “Their communication and rotations are so good. Offensively, they know exactly what they’re going to do in every situation.” The Spurs were 9 of 22 from 3-point range, with Leonard hitting three. Los Angeles came in 2-1 at home in the playoffs and 24-9 during the regular season. With their red-clad sellout crowd on its feet, the Clippers were still shooting 63 percent midway through the second quarter, when Griffin’s one-handed dunk kept them ahead by 20 points. The Spurs closed the half on a 15-5 spurt, with Parker and Ginobili scoring five each, to trail 53-43 at the break. Griffin missed just three of his 13 shots in the first half, when the Clippers controlled the boards and the paint. The Clippers opened the

No. 1 seed at state BY THE NEWS STAFF

The Nickerson baseball team will be the No. 8 seed at the Class 4A state tournament, which opens with Nickerson playing top-seed Concordia (20-1) at 11 a.m. Friday at Dean Evans Stadium in Salina. Nickerson earned its bid

Column ● From Page D1 However, Krol’s celebration on the bus ride home Wednesday was a little more subdued when he heard of the news of what took place in Haysville around the same time his Panthers were going through the high-five line after beating top-seeded Colby, 4-1. Hutchinson High, coached by Krol’s oldest son Adam, was one strike away from qualifying for the Kansas Class 6A tournament. By now, you know what happened. The Salthawks squandered their four-run lead and the regional championship game went to extra innings. Campus won the game in the bottom of the eighth on a walk-off single and Hutch’s season – which minutes earlier seemed destined to last one more week – ended. “That’s a bad way to lose,” Rich Krol said. “I hurt for Adam. Family is more important to me than anything. I know how hard he has worked with those kids.” Sadly, this won’t be Adam Krol’s last bad loss. God willing, he will be around for more gutwretching, teeth-gnashing setbacks because in the end, this can all be summed up with two simple words: That’s baseball. Sometimes, the breaks just don’t go your way. Sometimes, the ball bounces funny – like it did with two outs in the seventh inning on Wednesday. What could have been a game-ending ground ball took a funky little last-second bounce – maybe it hit a pebble – and it rolled up the arm of second baseman Ryan Stoecklein. By the time he got his throw to first, the runner was safe, a run had scored and there was a sense of doom in the air. The Colts took advantage and tied the game with two straight singles. You sensed it was going to happen. Momentum is a powerful intangible. That’s baseball. Frustrating. Heartbreaking. And sometimes amazing. That’s what keeps us coming back. That’s what has made Rich Krol continue to do what he does season after season. It prompted Adam Krol to enter the family business. And it’s what will fuel Stoecklein’s return to the field this

by sweeping through the Hoisington regional, giving up two runs in three games. The Panthers beat Hugoton 6-0, top-seed Pratt 11-1, and Colby 4-1. The winner of the Nickerson-Concordia games plays again at 10 a.m. Saturday against either Ottawa or Jefferson West.

summer. With each game is a good chance for failure – and a chance for something special. On Wednesday, that opportunity – a trip to a state tournament nobody ever expected – evaporated way too dramatically. Way too cruelly. “I have been around this game long enough to know that you don’t think about getting to a state tournament until you win the game,” Adam Krol said. “We didn’t do that.” His Salthawks had dared to dream about the biggest stage of the baseball season. They knew how close they were. They knew they were a strike – an out – away from salvaging a season that has featured far too many bad losses. “This is painful,” said Hutch senior Jerome Roehm, who capped a great season – and solid career – with two hits in the 5-4 loss. Sophomore shortstop Braydon Wells said it might have been the worst loss he has ever experienced. “We were so close,” he said, as he walked off the diamond for the last time this season. There will be more. It’s one of the ways that baseball imitates life. That’s the lesson Rich Krol has passed along to his sons, all of whom were raised with a love for baseball that has carried on into young adulthood. Adam knows the joys and anguish of coaching a high school baseball team, while Noah, who retired from professional baseball this year after six years as minor-league relief pitcher, is now Kyle Crookes’ pitching coach at Hutchinson Community College. Meanwhile, Mace Krol, the youngest son, just wrapped up his collegiate career at Fort Hays State and will play for the Hutchinson Monarchs this summer. “Baseball is a game of failure,” Rich Krol said. “You just have to keep doing the best you can. That’s life. Not everything goes according to plans. When you get knocked down into the dirt, you have to get up. You have to keep working hard. And you are going to fail. “It takes a certain amount of failure before you succeed. You just have to keep going.” Take it from a guy who knows. Take it from a guy who has had his share of setbacks – and is now reaping the rewards.

Roenicke: Brew Crew too quiet THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MILWAUKEE – Brewers manager Ron Roenicke says this year’s Milwaukee team might be too sedate. Prince Fielder, Nyjer Morgan and the Brewers were a boisterous bunch last year on their way to winning the NL Central. But Milwaukee went into Saturday’s game against Minnesota a seasonworst seven games below .500. Roenicke says the team is playing and working hard, but that something is missing from a group that lost Fielder, LaTroy Hawkins and other clubhouse personalities since the playoffs.

“This year, we’ve got a quiet group,” Roenicke said. “Sometimes, when things aren’t going really well, you need somebody to loosen it up a little bit. I know some guys are trying to do that, but it’s hard.” Roenicke, regarded as one of the more reserved managers in the majors, watched Milwaukee get drubbed 11-3 Friday night by the Twins, who came in with the worst record in the big leagues. It was the Brewers’ third straight loss and fifth in six games. “We haven’t figured out what kind of group this is going to be and the confidence you need,” he said.

“We knew where we were last year. We knew what kind of team we were.” Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke “We knew where we were last year. We knew what kind of team we were,” he said. “We had a lot of personalities on the team that I thought meshed really well.” Roenicke would like to see Morgan become more vocal in the clubhouse and the dugout. The outfielder was that way last year, and sometimes Roenicke had to rein him in when Morgan’s excitable personality became a distraction. “I’d rather have him step it up this year. I’ve had con-

versations with him,” Roenicke said. “It’s really hard for him, because he’s not playing that well, to be that guy he was last year. Unfortunately, sometimes you can’t be yourself.” “Last year, things were going so well, he could be himself. This year, I’d like him to be a little bit more of that guy. But he’s really concentrating, trying to figure out how to get his swing back and start playing like he did last year,” he said. Fielder, who departed Mil-


waukee for the Detroit Tigers as a free agent, commanded a presence on and off the field. “Prince is a big personality that has an edge,” Roenicke said. “He was able to loosen up a clubhouse, but because of the edge, he’d say ‘Let’s go. Enough is enough.’ When things are not going well, that’s when you really need the personalities, to keep things loose and keep things positive.” Roenicke said that the coaching staff this season team is trying to replicate that atmosphere with little success. “Sometimes players get a little tired of hearing us,” Roenicke said.

Votto keys Reds’ victory; Morrow tosses shutout THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK – Joey Votto hit a three-run homer, Jose Arredondo worked out of a ninth-inning jam for his first major league save and the Cincinnati Reds held off the New York Yankees 6-5 on Saturday. New York scored twice off Sean Marshall in the ninth, but Reds manager Dusty Baker pulled his regular closer in favor of Arredondo and he got the job done. Brandon Phillips got Cincinnati started with a run-scoring single and the Reds overcame Ivan Nova’s career-high 12 strikeouts to improve to 2-2 during their five-game visit to both New York ballparks this week. Making his first start at Yankee Stadium, Homer Bailey (2-3) pitched effectively into the seventh inning for the second consecutive outing. Cincinnati then turned it over to its normally lightsout bullpen and held on to hand New York its fourth loss in five games. Blue Jays 2, Mets 0 – Brandon Morrow pitched his second shutout in four starts, blanking the Mets on three hits and leading the Toronto Blue Jays over New York. Morrow (5-2) struck out eight and walked one to win for the fifth time in six outings. He has three career shutouts, including a victory over the Los Angeles Angels on May 3. Toronto matched its season high by winning its fourth in a row overall. New York lost for the sixth time in nine games and saw starter Miguel Batista leave with a sore lower back after two scoreless innings. The right-hander warmed up for the third but had to be replaced by righty Jeremy Hefner (0-1), who was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo

before the game. Pirates 4, Tigers 3 – Andrew McCutchen hit a pair of two-run homers and A.J. Burnett pitched six solid innings to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates over the Detroit Tigers. A day after Detroit’s Justin Verlander took a no-hitter into the ninth while shutting out the Pirates, McCutchen went deep twice off Tigers rookie Drew Smyly (1-1). It was McCutchen’s sixth career multihomer game and second in three days. He has seven home runs on the season. Prince Fielder hit a tworun homer for the Tigers, who stranded 10 runners. Burnett (2-2) allowed two runs and seven hits. Three relievers finished it off, with Joel Hanrahan pitching a hitless ninth for his ninth save. Fielder struck out swinging with a man on first to end it. Josh Harrison, who broke up Verlander’s no-hit bid Friday night, also had Pittsburgh’s first hit off Smyly on a bunt single in the first. McCutchen followed with a long homer to left-center. Indians 2, Marlins 0 – Jeanmar Gomez pitched three-hit ball into the seventh inning and Asdrubal Cabrera homered to lead the Cleveland Indians past the Miami Marlins. Gomez (3-2) allowed two Marlins to reach base in an inning only once, striking out four over 6 1-3 innings. Cabrera connected off Anibal Sanchez (2-2) to put Cleveland ahead in the fourth inning. Three relievers finished off the Indians’ third shutout of the season. Chris Perez struck out the side on 10 pitches in the ninth for his 13th save in 14 chances. Miami dropped to 13-5 in May, while Cleveland tied the three-game interleague se-

ries 1-1 by earning its fifth win in six games. Giants 4, Athletics 0 – Ryan Vogelsong allowed one hit in seven scoreless innings and played a key role in San Francisco’s go-ahead rally as the Giants beat the Oakland Athletics for the 11th straight time at home. Vogelsong (2-2) retired the first 13 batters he faced and allowed only a soft single to right-center by Seth Smith with one out in the fifth. But he was still locked in a scoreless duel with Tyson Ross before the Giants broke through for four runs with help of a disputed call in the seventh. Emmanuel Burriss led off the inning with an infield single, and Giants manager Bruce Bochy called back pinch-hitter Aubrey Huff from the on-deck circle to have Vogelsong try to lay down a bunt. Ross (2-4) threw high and tight and home plate umpire James Hoye ruled Vogelsong was hit by the pitch. The A’s argued that the ball hit Vogelsong’s bat. Grant Balfour came in and walked Gregor Blanco on four pitches before striking out Brandon Crawford for the first out. Melky Cabrera followed with a sacrifice fly. Buster Posey extended the lead with a ground-rule double and Angel Pagan’s single made it 4-0. Oakland manager Bob Melvin got ejected after arguing again with Hoye on his way to take out Balfour after Pagan’s hit. Twins 5, Brewers 4, 11 innings – Trevor Plouffe hit a solo home run in the top of the 11th inning to lift the Minnesota Twins over the Milwaukee Brewers. Plouffe’s fourth homer of the season came off Manny Parra (0-1) with two outs. Parra had retired the first two batters before Plouffe con-

nected on a 2-0 pitch that landed in the Brewers’ bullpen. Matt Capps, the fifth Twins reliever, got three outs for his ninth save while wrapping up the Twins’ fourth straight win. The Brewers threatened to win it in the 10th when Corey Hart singled with one out off reliever Jeff Gray (3-0), but Aramis Ramirez, whose tworun homer in the eighth tied the game, popped out to center to end the inning. It was the fourth straight loss for the Brewers, and sixth in seven games, dropping Milwaukee a season-worst eight games below .500. Rays 5, Braves 2 – Alex Cobb won his first start of the season, Matt Joyce hit a grand slam and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Atlanta Braves. Cobb (1-0) allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings. He retired his last 10 batters. Cobb was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Friday night to replace Jeff Niemann, who is on the 60-day disabled list with an injured right leg. The 24-year-old righty went 3-2 in nine starts for Tampa Bay last season. Joel Peralta pitched the eighth before Fernando Rodney got the final three outs for his 13th save. Randall Delgado (2-4) took the loss. Mariners 10, Rockies 3 – Jason Vargas threw seven strong innings, Kyle Seager homered and drove in three runs, and the Seattle Mariners beat the free-falling Colorado Rockies. One day after being victimized by Kevin Millwood’s two-hitter – his first shutout in nine years – the Rockies looked lost against Vargas (5-3), who took a two-hitter into the seventh to help hand Colorado its 12th loss in 15 games.

Kerry Wood was in a coat and tie rather than a baseball uniform as he stood at home plate at Wrigley Field on Saturday and thanked many people for his 14 years in the major leagues. Wood, who retired after Friday’s game, will likely join the Chicago Cubs in another role after taking some time off to spend with his family. Wood, who struck out 20

batters as a rookie in 1998, said perhaps his best memory came Friday when he fanned the last batter he faced. After his final pitch, he was greeted in front of the dugout by his son, Justin. The 34-year-old Wood was given a picture of that moment, plus a flag from his 20-strikeout game during a ceremony before Saturday’s game against the White Sox.

Dufner carries lead into final round of Nelson ■ His second PGA Tour

victory is in sight as he clings to a one-stroke lead. BY STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

IRVING, Texas – Nine players had or shared the lead during the third round of the Byron Nelson Championship. Yet when play ended Saturday, Jason Dufner was the one alone at the top of the leaderboard for the second day in a row. Unfazed by more breezy conditions, Dufner shot a 1under 69 for an 8-under 202 total. He had a one-stroke lead over Jason Day, J.J. Henry and Dicky Pride. “Similar conditions as (Friday), so probably helped me a little bit, just being comfortable with the wind and how hard it was blowing,” Dufner said. “Good ball striking, hit a lot of greens. ... Didn’t feel like I was scrambling too much, trying to save pars or out of position, anything like that.” Three weeks after getting his first PGA Tour victory at New Orleans, and two weeks after getting married, Dufner is already trying to win again. Dufner is comfortable in his position with the experience of having won recently, and the forecast for more wind Sunday, though it is not expected to be as stiff as the 20 mph with gusts the last two days. Matt Kuchar, who won The Players Championship last weekend, was in a group of eight players four shots back after a 72 with an up-and-down back nine. Kuchar, the fifth-ranked player in the world, still has a chance to become the first PGA Tour player since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win in consecutive weeks. Dufner’s only bogey came at the 528-yard par-4 third hole, when he knew right away that his drive wasn’t a good one. He immediately

Pressel wins twice to reach Another semifinals of tough Sybase BY TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer

GLADSTONE, N.J. – The Sybase Match Play Championship has been a tournament full of surprises since day one, and nothing changed this year. None of the top 14 seeds are still around. The final four consists of two so-called veterans seeking their first wins since 2008 and a couple highly regarded youngsters seeking their first taste of victory on the LPGA Tour. Of the four, Morgan Pressel is the household name. She won a major at 18 in 2007 and one other time the following year. Candie Kung is a 30-yearold four-time winner, who has not held a trophy since 2008. Azahara Munoz of Spain won an NCAA title for Arizona State, while Vicky Hurst is a 21-year-old who represented the United States in the Solheim Cup last year. In the semifinals Sunday, Pressel will face Munoz, and Kung will take on Hurst. Pressel, who has struggled all season, is the most interesting story. The soon-to-be 24-year-old rallied from 2down with three holes to play to stun No. 2 ranked Na Yeon Choi in 19 holes in the morning and rolled over Anna Nordqvist of Sweden 5 and 4 in the afternoon quarterfinal in the surprised-filled event at the Hamilton Farm Golf Club. Pressel is the highest seed left at No. 15. Munoz, who had two top-five finishes recently, is the 19th-seed. Hurst is seeded 37th and Kung, who beat No. 1 ranked Yani Tseng in the morning round of 16, is the lowest seed left at No. 49. “I think that I definitely want to win again and I’ll have a chance tomorrow,” Pressel said. “No matter what happens, I think that I – this is the best I’ve played in a long time, and from Japan two weeks ago to this week, I finally feel comfortable with my game again to a point

Morgan Pressel hits a tee shot on the second hole during a fourth round match against Anna Nordqvist, of Sweden, in the LPGA Sybase Match Play Championship golf competition at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, N.J., on Saturday. where I haven’t been in a while. I’m going to give it everything that I have tomorrow.” Pressel, whose best finish this year is a tie for 20th, has been steady this week. She made birdies on the 16th and 17th holes to tie Choi and won on the 19th when the South Korean missed a parsaving putt. In the afternoon, Pressel ran away from Nordqvist after the one-time U.S. Women’s Open champion fell behind after a couple of bogeys. “This afternoon, I had a little bit of a break and didn’t need to make quite as many birdies, but tomorrow I’m going to need to make the birdies again because I’m sure ‘Atha’s’ going to come out and come out strong,” Pressel said. Munoz routed off No. 6 seeded Stacy Lewis 5 and 4 in a match the tour’s best American this year didn’t play well. In the round of 16, Lewis – who was the highestseeded player remaining at that point – edged 2010 Sybase champion Sun Young Yoo 1-up in the morning. “I played pretty horrible,” said Lewis, who won in Mobile, Ala., two weeks ago. “It was probably one of the worst rounds I played all year. It probably didn’t matter who I was playing, I wasn’t going to win.”

Munoz and Pressel are good friends. “We both want to win bad, so I think it’s going to be fun,” the 24-year-old Munoz said. “I wish I wasn’t playing her to be honest.” Hurst and Kung both had to work harder to post their quarterfinals wins. The long-hitting Hurst, who upset No. 5 ranked Cristie Kerr over 19 holes Friday, won the 15th and 16th holes to take the lead en route to a 2-up win over U.S. Women’s Open champion So Yeon Ryu of South Korea. Kung also won the 15th and 16th holes to go 2-up against Julieta Granada of Paraguay and closed out a 2-and-1 win with a par at the 17th. “We both played pretty solid the whole day,” Hurst said. “She kind of let it go at the end, but it was pretty close.” Kung said her putting carried her Saturday, but she had other concerns after the matches. She probably didn’t expect to be here Sunday and checked out of her hotel. In the other morning matches, Ryu won seven of the first nine holes en route to a 5-and- 4 win over Katherine Hull of Australia. Nordqvist won four of the final six holes in beating No. 10 seed Amy Yang 3 and 1. Hurst was a 2-and-1 winner over Angela Stanford in an AllAmerican match.

let those things happen, but occasionally they creep in your mind,” he said. “That bunker is almost as bad as being in the water, so (Sunday) maybe I’ll think of that and play more aggressive and try to hit the shot a little better.” Dufner, who birdied four of his last five holes Friday, got the lost stroke back Saturday with a 10-foot birdie putt at No. 6. He had pars the rest of the way except for the 14-foot birdie at the par-4 14th. Day’s only bogey came when he missed a putt of less than 2 feet at No. 18. The ball rimmed around the cup and rolled back toward him, costing him a share of the lead with a round of 67. “I just hit it too hard through the break,” said Day, the 2010 Nelson champ who finished fifth last year in his only other appearance on the TPC at Four Seasons courses. “One day that hole will pay me back, and hopefully it’s (Sunday).” There were 20 players within five strokes of the lead. And 10th-ranked Phil Mickelson was among of group of seven more players only one more back. Henry had three birdies on the back nine after two bogeys on the easier front nine in a round of 67. Pride, who has been playing professionally for 20 years, got his only PGA Tour victory in 1994. “I threw my caddie in the air trying to figure out the wind,” Pride said jokingly after his round of 69. “Grass, I couldn’t see.” Vijay Singh, a 34-time PGA Tour winner whose last victory was in 2008, had a 66 Saturday. He was two strokes back after an eaglebirdie-bogey finish. After his 38-foot eagle putt at the par-5 16th, he made a 5-foot birdie at No. 17 but missed a par putt of the same distance on the last hole. “I’ve been looking forward to this position,” he said. “My game has been

$2.80. Bodemeister returned $3.20 and $2.80, and Creative Cause paid $3.60 to show. Creative Cause was third, 8¾ lengths behind hard-luck runner-up Bodemeister, followed by Zetterholm, Teeth of the Dog, Optimizer, Cozzetti, Tiger Walk, Daddy Nose Best, Went the Day Well and Pretension. Baffert, a five-time Preakness winner, thought his colt – named for his 7year-old son, Bode – could pull off the win. “I felt really good about where he was,” Baffert said. “I really thought he was going to do it. The winner is a good horse. He should get the respect now that he deserves.” The chestnut colt has never been favored in any of his seven races, but won five of them along with $2,693,600 after he was purchased by Reddam for

coming around, but there wasn’t any signs of scoring and this s the first day where I kind of went out there and scored well.” PGA rookie Jonas Blixt from Sweden (67) and Marc Leishman (71) were tied for sixth at 205. Ryan Palmer, the 2011 Nelson runner-up after losing in a playoff, shot a 72 in the final group. He was with Kuchar and defending Nelson champion Keegan Bradley (71) in that group of eight at 2006. Kuchar was 8 under and leading after consecutive birdies to start his back nine, with a 32-foot putt at No. 10 and hitting his approach at No. 11 inside 3 feet. After hitting his tee shot at No. 12 into a fairway bunker, he had a chance to save par but missed a 6-foot putt. His tee shot at the 180yard 13th stopped 4 inches from the pin for a tap-in birdie that got him back to 8 under and the lead, but that didn’t last long. An errant drive on No. 14 led to a drop, then he had to punch back into the fairway before his approach to the back fringe of the green and a double bogey. His approach out of the rough at the next hole found a greenside bunker and he missed a 7-footer for par. Bradley was only one stroke off the lead when his drive at No. 11 was way right. His shot from there went over the green and trickled into the water, leading to a triple bogey that took him to 4 under, where he finished. Mickelson had five birdies and four bogeys for a round of 69. He failed to make up any ground even after holing a 42-foot chip shot at No. 18, where he finished with double bogey Friday. “It was a fun way to end the day,” he said. “I had a lot of opportunities to get right back in the mix and made four or five mistakes there, sloppy bogeys.”

$35,000 on the advice of O’Neill’s brother, Dennis. “He showed he’s the real deal. He’s a real race horse. He gutted it out,” Reddam said. “The other horse was not stopping. He ran a bang-up race, to come and catch him, how can you criticize that? For those who have followed the horse and bet on him, that’s been pretty rewarding. I don’t know if that will be the case next time, though. Gutierrez, who was riding at Hastings Park in Western Canada until showing up in California last winter, displayed the calm and cunning of a veteran. “It’s not me, it’s him. It’s all about the horse,” the 25year-old jockey from Mexico said. “He just keeps proving people wrong. I’m so happy for him because he’s such a great horse. He has a tremendous kick in the end.”

Triple Crown dreams are often dashed at Belmont THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Since Affirmed last won horse racing’s Triple Crown in 1978, 11 3-yearolds have won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness – but fallen short in the Belmont Stakes. A look at how those thoroughbreds ran at Belmont: ● 2008: Big Brown finishes last to Da’ Tara, the longest shot on the board. Big Brown fails to respond when jockey Kent Desormeaux asks for more speed in the last turn. At that point, Desormeaux eases him up. ● 2004: Smarty Jones extends his lead approaching the quarter pole and maintains a clear lead inside the furlong marker. Fights gamely into the deep stretch then yields grudgingly to finish second, a length behind Birdstone. ● 2003: Funny Cide leads

to the far turn, relinquishes the lead to Empire Maker at the three-sixteenths pole, battles along the inside to the top of the stretch then weakens, finishing third, five lengths back. ● 2002: War Emblem stumbles badly out of the gate then bumps Magic Weisner at the start in an 11-horse field. Takes brief lead nearing the half-mile pole. Remains a factor to the turn but gives way, finishing eighth, 19½ lengths back. ● 1999: Charismatic takes the lead briefly at the turn but Lemon Drop Kid and Vision and Verse fly by him on the outside and he finishes third, 1½ lengths back. ● 1998: Four lengths ahead with an eighth-mile remaining, Real Quiet is nipped by a nose at the wire by Victory Gallop in a nine-horse field. ● 1997: Silver Charm

fails to hold off Touch Gold in the final eighthmile and finishes second, three-quarters of a length back, in a seven-horse field. ● 1989: Sunday Silence can’t match Easy Goer in the final quarter-mile and finishes second, eight lengths back in a 10-horse field. ● 1987: Checked sharply on the final turn, Alysheba finishes fourth, 14 lengths behind winner Bet Twice in a 10-horse field. ● 1981: Pleasant Colony, never better than third, finishes a little more than 1½ lengths behind Summing, with Highland Blade second in an 11horse field. ● 1979: The 1-5 favorite, Spectacular Bid leads with a quarter-mile left, but weakens to finish third in an eight-horse field, 3¼ lengths behind Coastal and another head behind Golden Act.

The free family event for children 14 years of age and younger begins with registration at 8:30 a.m. at the Kids’ Fishing Pond just west of the Visitor Center. From 9 to 10:30 a.m., participants will visit five learning stations, where staff and volunteers will share their fishing expertise with the kids on casting, knot tying, aquatic ecology, and fish ethics, as well as other knowledge. Next, the action moves to the Kids’ Fishing Pond where the kids will try to catch a “big one.” Fishing poles, bait and guidance are provided at no charge. All children who catch a fish will receive a photo card with their picture, along with the weight and length of their catch. At noon, the Friends of Quivira provide a hot dog lunch, followed by door prize drawings. The event ends just after noon. Advance registration is required.

Area is blessed with high-quality fish ■ Angler success with

walleye varies with the change of the seasons. BY JASON PROBST The Hutchinson News

The walleye is one of the most prolific, and most sought after, fish in Kansas waters. From the reservoirs in the northwest corner of the state, to the impoundments in southern and eastern Kansas, anglers spend many spring days seeking out this toothy predator. Yet few months offer as much opportunity as May. Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism Fisheries Biologist Jeff Koch said walleyes move to the mud “flats” in mid- to lateApril, where they remain through May, to feed and recover from the spawning efforts of March and early April. “They’re hungry after the spawn” Koch said. “They move onto the flats

and eat until the gizzard shad get to a size they can use.” The walleye is known for its unusual eyes – which are large and appear to glow when struck by light. “They have a membrane on their eyes that gathers light,” Koch explained. “They hunt in the dark because they have an advantage at light gathering.” This advantage in low light conditions makes late evening and early mornings the prime time for fishing success, Koch said. In mid-March, generally when the water temperature reaches 40 to 45 degrees, male walleyes move toward rocky points and the rip-rap of a dam for the spawn. Koch said the females remain in nearby deeper water, quickly moving shallow to lay their eggs before again retreating to safer waters. The spawn takes its toll, however. Females can lose more than 20 percent of their body weight during

the spawn, and the event is so stressful that walleye become nearly impossible to catch immediately after the spawn. During the month of May and June, however, anglers will find walleye on the mud flats, ready to eat everything in sight. It’s easy for anglers to spot the flats during May – just look for the largest concentration of boats on the water. The most popular fishing methods this time of year include using a jig and nightcrawler, or a spinning worm harness rigged to bounce along the bottom of the lake. Koch said anglers at Cheney also have luck trolling crankbaits around points and underwater islands. A recent survey at Glen Elder Reservoir showed that 81 percent of the walleye harvested from the lake occurred between April and June, Koch said. Once the newly hatched gizzard shad reach edible size – generally around July 4 when the shad are roughly 2 inches long –

walleye again become difficult to catch. The abundant food source allows walleye to get their fill without much effort. By the time fall rolls around, however, and the water temperatures begin to cool, the walleye return to feed heavily before winter sets in. With a healthy appetite and a reduced shad population, anglers can once again find walleye in shallow water. Thanks to Kansas’ long growing season and productive waters, walleye in the Sunflower state grow fast. But this increased growth rate reduces their lifespan when compared with walleye population in northern states. Sampling data shows the oldest Kansas walleye live 7 to 9 years, while Canadian walleye live well into their teens, Koch said. However in Kansas, most don’t make it that long thanks to their popularity both as a sport fish and table fare. “They live fast and die young,” Koch said. To ensure an adequate

supply, biologists with KDWPT collect nearly 80 million walleye eggs each year, which are processed at the state’s fish hatcheries for eventual stocking in lakes and reservoirs. In fact, Koch says that most of the walleye in Kansas come from KDWPT stocking efforts rather than natural reproduction. This year, for example, biologists stocked nearly 1 million fry in Kanopolis Reservoir, and in the coming weeks roughly 200,000 fingerlings will find a new home in Cheney Reservoir. Biologists also use the walleye eggs to create a hybrid between the walleye and the sauger, known as the saugeye. Koch said the saugeye is less prone to some challenges found in Kansas lakes, such as turbid water and seasonal fluctuations in water levels. “They don’t get flushed as easily through the lake,” Koch said. “They’re a river species, so they’re more tolerant to flow and turbidity.”
