Al-Qaida calls for more embassy attacks ■ But Muslim religious

leaders plea for no violence. BY AYA BATRAWY AND LEE KEATH Associated Press

CAIRO – Al-Qaida’s most active branch in the Middle East called for more attacks on U.S. embassies Saturday

to “set the fires blazing,” seeking to co-opt outrage over an anti-Muslim film even as the wave of protests that swept 20 countries this week eased. Senior Muslim religious authorities issued their strongest pleas yet against resorting to violence, trying to defuse Muslim anger over

the film a day after new attacks on U.S. and Western embassies that left at least eight protesters dead. The top cleric in U.S. ally Saudi Arabia denounced the film but said it can’t really hurt Islam, a contrast to protesters’ frequently heard cries that the movie amounts to a humiliating at-

tack that requires retaliation. He urged Muslims not to be “dragged by anger” into violence. The head of the Sunni Muslim world’s pre-eminent religious institution, Egypt’s Al-Azhar, backed peaceful protests but said Muslims should counter the movie by reviving Islam’s moderate ideas.

In the Egyptian capital Cairo, where the first protests against the movie that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad erupted, police finally succeeded in clearing away protesters who had been clashing with security forces for days near the U.S. Embassy. Police arrested 220 people and a concrete wall

Keeping the fair’s ship afloat Commercial exhibits director juggles duties BY KATHY HANKS The Hutchinson News khanks@hutchnews.com

Sue Stoecklein was striding to the Pride of Kansas Building Friday morning to greet the exhibitors. Never mind that she was still recovering from a fall off her bicycle on May 30 that shattered her right elbow in seven places and injured her leg. As the commercial exhibits director there wasn’t the time for Stoecklein to slow down. Not this week. She will have her first day off in a month on Sept. 22. “Come on, Chuck,” Stoecklein says to Chuck Harris, who supervises the Pride of Kansas Building during the fair. “Show off your building.” Harris proudly leads her past exhibitors related to all things agricultural. She tries to talk to every vendor, despite having 680 to visit within 10 days, located in 1,165 spaces. But she wants the people who work hard during the fair to know they are appreciated. Stopping to greet Will Ruder, who is manning U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran’s booth, he thanks her for having them at the fair. “The fair seems to go off without a hitch,” Ruder said, as

was erected across the road leading to the embassy. No significant protests were reported in the Mideast Saturday; the only report of violence linked to the film came from Australia, where riot police clashed with about 200 protesters at the

Mulch-Hart said the students, all education majors in their junior year, would spend Wednesday night at the fair and then go through KLC activities as students and teachers. Criss Palacioz, supervisor for KLC, said the goal was to help Kamp KIK participants become better teachers, as well as increase KLC numbers in the future. “We wanted to try and inform teachers about the programs so hopefully when these people (Kamp KIK participants) graduate, they’ll be familiar with the program and…the possibilities of education at the fair,” Palacioz said.

TOPEKA– Dozens of Kansas legislators questioned about private dinners with Gov. Sam Brownback at his official residence weren’t well-versed in the state’s Open Meetings Act, transcripts of their interviews show. The lawmakers were interviewed as part of a prosecutor’s investigation of the dinners. Few had read the open meetings law, and most reported receiving no formal training on how to avoid violating it, the transcripts showed. They had little written guidance other than a section in their legislative guidebook. Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor released transcripts of interviews conducted by two deputies with 53 legislators regarding seven dinner meetings held in January at Cedar Crest, the governor’s residence. The lawmakers sat on 13 legBROWNBACK islative committees and almost all were Republicans, like Brownback. Taylor, a Democrat, concluded last month that legislators violated the Kansas Open Meetings Act, scolded them publicly and admonished them to become better informed about the law’s requirements. But he did not pursue further action, saying he could prove only “technical” violations. An exchange between Taylor’s deputies and Rep. Joe Scapa, a Wichita Republican,

Kansas’ Largest Classroom gets even bigger this year BY KAYLA REGAN The Hutchinson News kregan@hutchnews.com

Kansas’ Largest Classroom, the Kansas State Fair’s education program, already attracts thousands of elementary and middle school students from across the state with interactive demonstrations and hands-on experiences. However, with increasing demand for the fair’s high school program, as well as a new course for college students on the roster, Lori Mulch-Hart, state fair assistant manager, said Kansas’ Largest Classroom was bigger than ever. Previously, the fair didn’t offer formal education programs for college students. That changed Wednesday evening when 40 students from Tabor and Sterling colleges

Thousands of striking Chicago teachers rally CHICAGO – Thousands of striking Chicago public school teachers and their allies packed a city park Saturday in a boisterous show of force as union leaders and the district tried to work out the details of an agreement that could end a week-long walkout. Pushing strollers, toting signs and towing wagons of children, thousands of red-shirted teachers cheered and chanted as speaker after speaker urged them to stand firm until they have a deal in writing. They told the teachers that their strike was a symbol of hope for public teachers and other unions that have been losing ground around the nation. Months of contract negotiations came down to two main issues: job security and union opposition to a new teacher evaluation process the union felt was too heavily weighted on student test scores.

Poll: Strong support for spending limits

Royals seek to contain photos of Kate ROME – The British royal family faced a multinational battle to contain the spread of topless photos of Prince William’s wife Kate, as an Irish tabloid published them Saturday. The royal couple’s St. James’s Palace office condemned the moves as unjustifiable and evidence of pure greed, and said it was considering “all proportionate responses.” The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge sued French magazine Closer on Friday after it ran the photos, taken while Kate and William were on vacation at a relative’s private estate.

WASHINGTON – Americans don’t like all the cash that’s going to super political action committees and other outside groups that are pouring millions of dollars into races for president and Congress. More than 8 in 10 Americans in a poll by The Associated Press and the National Constitution Center support limits on the amount of money given to groups that are trying to influence U.S. elections.

United case removed limits on independent campaign spending by businesses and labor unions, calling it a constitutionally protected form of political speech. “Corporate donations, I think that is one of the biggest problems today,” said Walter L. Cox Sr., 86, of Cleveland. “They are buying the White House. They are buying public office.” Cox, a Democrat, was one of many people in the poll who do not, in spite of the high court ruling, think corporate and union campaign spending should be unlimited. The strong support for limiting the amount of money in politics stood alongside another poll finding that shows Americans have a ro-

bust view of the right to free speech. Seventy-one percent of the 1,006 adults in the APNCC poll said people should have the right to say what they please, even if their positions are deeply offensive to others. The ringing endorsement of First Amendment freedoms matched the public’s view of the Constitution as an enduring document, even as Americans hold the institutions of government, other than the military, in very low regard. “The Constitution is 225 years old and 70 percent of Americans continue to believe that it’s an enduring document that’s relevant today, even as they lose faith in some of the people who have been given their job descriptions by the Constitution,”

said David Eisner, the constitution center’s chief executive officer. For the first time in the five years the poll has been conducted, more than 6 in 10 Americans favor giving same-sex couples the same government benefits as opposite-sex married couples. That’s an issue, in one form or another, the Supreme Court could take up in the term that begins Oct. 1. More than half of Americans support legal recognition of gay marriage, although that number is unchanged from a year ago. In the past three years, though, there has been both a significant uptick in support for gay marriage, from 46 percent to 53 percent, and a decline in opposition to it, from 53 percent to 42 percent.

2 Marines killed in attack in Afghanistan THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Heavily armed insurgents attacked a British air base in southern Afghanistan Friday, killing two U.S. Marines and wounding several other troops, U.S. officials said. An estimated 16 Taliban fighters were also killed in the assault, said Lt. Col. Stewart Upton, a spokesman at Camp Leatherneck, a U.S.

Marine based adjacent to the air base, Camp Bastion. Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, is stationed at Camp Bastion on a four-month combat tour. There was no immediate word on his whereabouts at the time of the attack. U.S. officials said the attack at the base in Afghanistan’s Helmand province involved a range of insurgent weaponry, possi-

bly including mortars, rockets or rocket-propelled grenades, as well as small arms fire. Upton said two coalition service members had been killed but he did not specify their nationalities. He said coalition forces were assessing the extent of the damage and would provide more details later. Camp Bastion is a British air base and is used by the

Marines at Leatherneck. A number of aircraft at the base also were hit by insurgent fire, another U.S. official said. Capt. Harry Wales, as the prince is known in the military, is serving a four-month combat deployment as a gunner on an Apache helicopter. Harry, who turns 28 on Saturday, is expected to start flying Apache missions this week.

60 properties are still on list for sheriff’s tax sale BY KEN STEPHENS The Hutchinson News kstephens@hutchnews.com

After a busy week of people rushing to pay off delinquent property taxes, as of Friday afternoon 60 properties remained on the list to be auctioned at the annual Reno County sheriff ’s tax sale on Wednesday. The sale begins at 9 a.m. in

Memorial Hall, 101 S. Walnut. County Counselor Joe O’Sullivan began with 172 properties. A few were removed from the list because they paid at least one of three years delinquent taxes before O’Sullivan filed his case in Reno County District Court, and a few others were removed through negotiations on a payment plan with impoverished homestead own-

ers. Another 84 have been stricken from the list after the owners paid all their delinquent taxes. In all, more than $423,000 in back taxes and fees have been collected since the case was filed in March. Those who haven’t made it to the courthouse to take care of business can still save their properties from

the auction block by paying all their taxes due, plus a $260 redemption fee, by 5 p.m. Tuesday. Proceeds from the sale of each property go first to cover court costs and the cost of the sale itself, then to unpaid taxes, then to any other lien holders and then, if anything is left, to the property owner. But last year only 15 of the

43 properties auctioned at the sheriff ’s sale went for more than the taxes owed. Reno County received $18,123 toward costs and $60,070 for delinquent taxes, a total of $78,193. Buyers at the sale will get a title clear of any liens. The exception will be less than a handful of properties with federal tax liens. In those cases, the Internal Revenue

Service has 120 days to claim the property by paying all the local taxes due. If that happens, the buyer gets a refund. If not, the buyer gets title clear of any liens 120 days after the sale. Properties on the list have at least three years (2008, 2009, 2010) delinquent taxes. In the case of “homestead” properties, the delinquent taxes date back to 2007.

Gina Blogref and Rhonda Sherrod of the Soya Essence booth talk with Sue Stoecklein, commercial exhibit director, and Pride of Kansas Building manager Chuck Harrison as Stoecklein and Harrison tour the building Friday.

Fair ●From Page A1 Weskan, and everybody is in a good mood.” Keeping that ship afloat takes coordination and seeing to every detail, both qualities Stoecklein worked to develop since taking over the position in 2005. Fair week is her harvest and Christmas rolled into one. Despite the long hours, she is energized by the people and the entire atmosphere that surrounds visitors. “She is very passionate about what she does,” said Denny Stoecklein, fair manager It can be confusing when people meet the two Stoeckleins working at the Kansas State Fair. Denny Stoecklein explains that he and Sue are not related. She is married to Lt. Col. Alan Stoecklein with the Kansas Highway Patrol, who is Denny’s second cousin. Denny jokes that his branch of the family is the flowery one, while Sue married into the one with all the thorns. Sue Stoecklein laughs at a good joke, and she laughs often. Living the Dream After graduating from Garden City High School, Stoecklein went to work as a dispatcher in the local law enforcement center. “I met a city patrolman,” she said. They were married in 1978 when she was 19. Alan Stoecklein went on to become a KHP trooper and they moved to Hutchinson where she worked for Farmland Industries as a project manager. That’s where she gained her organizational skills. From there she went to work for Ameriprise Financial Services, when she discovered the fair needed a commercial exhibits director in 2005. Today, she and Alan have two grown children. Jeremy is serving in the U.S. Navy, and her daughter Brandy is married to Kansas Highway Patrolman Lt. Jason Hoffman. “I picked him out for her. His father-in-law is the lieutenant colonel in Topeka. You almost feel sorry for the boy,” said Stoecklein, laughing. Walking on the grounds

Dinners ●From Page A1 was typical of the interviews, The Topeka CapitalJournal reported. Scapa was asked about two dinners to which he was invited, and he said the law wasn’t violated. Pressed to explain, he told Taylor’s deputies, “Because that’s what I believe.” “I don’t know how to explain it to you, but that’s what I know,” Scapa said, according the transcript.

she spies a car driving through a crowd of fairgoers. She pulls out a small notebook and pen hooked to her belt and writes down the tag number. Nothing slips past this woman. She’ll find out who they are and where they belong. “I try to be tough and fair,” she said. “That’s probably accurate,” said Steven Mills, who works with Stoecklein during the fair. She goes from one employee most of the year to 200 during the fair. It takes that many people to run her tight ship. Stoecklein wants the exhibits to look clean around the fairgrounds, with exhibitors staying within their allotted spaces. “We work hard to make sure that cars are in parking lots and exhibitors are in their exhibits,” she said. “We want to make sure what they tell me they are doing, they are doing.” They need to be in their booths when the exhibit halls open. Plus, a person renting a space to sell knives can’t let a friend sell Tupperware from that booth. She puts out fires all the time with plumbing and electrical issues. She makes sure the Artic Ice truck and the deliveries can be made to the concessions every morning. While they have to get around with equipment she wants to make sure it doesn’t impact the public. “The public is the most important,” she said. While she wants neat appearing exhibits, she also wants the fair to be loud, smelly and noisy. “I want it to hit all those senses,” she said. Perception is reality Stoecklein easily jumps from one subject to another quickly, she knows how to multi-task. “You learn right away she’s a hugger,” said Chuck Harris. But, she also practices tough love. If a vendor isn’t following the rules, which comes in a 40-plus page handbook, Stoecklein isn’t afraid to let the person know they need to correct the problem. She stops and visits with a woman in the Honey Producers Booth, who is delighted to see her and show her a photo album from her

Despite not being wellversed in the Open Meetings Act, most of the legislators interviewed said they were confident they hadn’t violated it. Many said the dinners didn’t feel like “meetings” because food was served, and it was a social atmosphere. When one of Taylor’s deputies asked Sen. Terrie Huntington, a Fairway Republican, whether she understood that the meetings law applied to social gatherings, she said, “I did not.” The Open Meetings Act generally prohibits a major-

wedding last year at the fairgrounds RV Park. She loves people, so it’s hard for her to walk through the building quickly. The man sitting next to the 500 pound bale of cotton has to tell her the latest tricks other vendors have played with the bale. She talks to the women from McPherson College, who are in the Pride of Kansas Building for the first time, “Are you happy where you are at?” she asks the women. Stopping at the Greensburg exhibit, she compliments the great way they have found to tell their story. While she’s ecstatic about her work, a bonus is that she can always improve on it next year. “My philosophy is what you can’t solve in 10 days goes away,” Sue Stoecklein said. But, she gets to try again next year. Laying out the 1,165 vendor spaces is like a big puzzle for Stoecklein as she tries to place the exhibitors just right. “Sometimes I do well with my puzzle,” she said. “Sometimes I have to redo it.” Sometimes Stoecklein feels as if the fair rolls around every six months. Meanwhile, back in the administration building, it appears chaotic as food venders stop in to pay their commission to the fair for the day. There is so much to overseeing the commercial world of the fair, and it works when everyone follows the same rules. “We run a quality show,” Stoecklein said. She knows people can be proud to be a part of the fair and the public can feel very safe to come out and eat and buy things. “Everyone needs to be on their best behavior,” she said. “You have to treat the people of Kansas right.” If someone calls after the fair to say something they bought broke, she hounds the vendor until they make it right for the customer. Wendy Schaffer, Stoecklein’s assistant, describes their office space in the administration building like a comedy show because they have so much fun. “She is probably the best boss I ever worked for,” Schaffer said. “She backs you up.”

ity of a legislative body from meeting without giving the public notice and access to the event. A gathering of a committee’s majority is a meeting if public business is discussed and lawmakers interact. Officials who knowingly violate the law can be fined up to $500 per incident, though only a county prosecutor or the attorney general can seek such a sanction from a court. However, a prosecutor or private citizen also can go to court for an order for corrective action.

NESS CITY – A powerful photo memorial, Remembering Our Fallen, that’s traveling around the state will make its first visit to western Kansas with a stop in Ness City from Oct. 4 to 9.

After MulchHart met with the girl’s teacher at Tabor, as well as teachers in Reno County, Kamp KIK was born. Mulch-Hart said she invited Sterling College to participate to add social and networking aspects to the program. “It’s something we’ve never done before,” Mulch-Hart said. “We really needed to make sure we got it right.” Palacioz said anywhere from 5,000 to 7,000 students and hundreds of Kansas schools participated in KLC. A few years ago, the fair implemented the Kansas Press Corps program to attract more high school students. While the program was slow to take off in its first year, it’s become a highly regarded journalism competition in the last couple of years, said Janet Hallford, who helped start the competition. Hallford said she thought the program enjoyed high demand because it challenged students with all the expectations and deadlines of a real newsroom. “The best way to learn journalism is to do it,” Hall-

Doug Anstaett, executive director of the Kansas Press Association, said the “discussion” standard isn’t meant to limit legislators but ensure they’ve consider all options in pursuing policy. “Having members of the public involved during the discussion phase guarantees that all those options are considered,” Anstaett said. “It also leads to more buy-in from the public when tough decisions are made.” Some of the legislators interviewed by Taylor’s

More than 200 students in teams of five will compete in the categories of print, photography or video over the course of this year’s program. Hallford said some schools complained that the competition wasn’t divided by school divisions, but she said she liked it that way. “We have 1A schools competing against 6A schools,” Hallford said. “It doesn’t matter how big your school is; everybody gets five students.” The winning teams win $100 towards the school’s journalism program and this year Hallford said the KPC started giving individ-

deputies said that while they understood they could violate the law in social settings, they believed they’d have to take binding action or have detailed policy discussions. Told by one of Taylor’s deputies that a mere discussion of business could be a violation, Sen. Susan Wagle, a Wichita Republican, said, “If you were to interpret it that broadly, then I would say all our social events violate the Open Meetings Act.” Most of the legislators who were interviewed

Sang Tiet, a Winfield High junior, was working on a story about the different breeds of sheep. He said he didn’t know anything about the topic, and likely wouldn’t have been interested in it on his own. Tiet said it was important he found some way to connect to the story. “I’m interested in it because I know I have to be interested in it to write a story,” Tiet said. Palacioz said it was hard to determine how much of the fair was dedicated to education, since almost everything could be interpreted as a learning experience. “Its education to everyone in one way or another,” she said.

seemed receptive to the idea of more open meetings training, which was recommended by the district attorney’s office in its final report. Anstaett said the press association will help. “We’re going to ask the attorney general to work with us, the cities and the counties to come up with new language that re-emphasizes the importance of meeting in the open,” Anstaett said. “I know the organizations that work with these local units of government are training their members on the law.”

Attacks ●From Page A1 U.S. Consulate in Sydney. In his weekly radio and Internet address, President Barack Obama paid tribute to the four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, who were killed in an armed attack on the U.S. Consulate in the eastern Libyan city on Benghazi this week. He also denounced the anti-U.S. mob protests that followed. “I have made it clear that the United States has a profound respect for people of all faiths. We stand for religious freedom. And we reject the denigration of religion – including Islam,” Obama said. “Yet there is never any justification for violence. There is no religion that condones the targeting of innocent men and women.” In Afghanistan, the Taliban claimed responsibility for an attack the night before by 20 insurgents on a sprawling British based in southern Afghanistan that killed two U.S. Marines. The Taliban said the attack was to avenge Muslims insulted by the film. It also said the attack came because Britain’s Prince Harry is serving at the base, though British officials said he was far from the site of the attack and was unharmed. Friday’s demonstrations spread to more than 20 countries in the Middle East, Africa and Southeast Asia. While most were peaceful, marches in several places exploded into violence. In Sudan, crowds torched part of the German Embassy and tried to storm the American Embassy. Protesters climbed the walls into the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, torching cars in the parking lot, trashing the entrance building and setting fire to a gym and a neighboring American school. Four demonstrators were killed in Tunisia, two in Sudan, one in Lebanon and one in Egypt — the first Egyptian protester to die in clashes with police since Islamist President Mohammed Morsi took up his post this summer. On Thursday, four Yemeni protesters were killed in protests that turned violent at the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa. The Yemen-based al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, considered the most danger-

Lebanese army soldiers stand guard Saturday outside a Burger King as part of stepped up security measures in the southern port city of Sidon, Lebanon. Angry protesters attacked a Hardees and Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets in Tripoli on Friday to protest against a movie that insults Prophet Muhammad. ous of the terror network’s branches to the U.S., called the killing of Stevens “the best example” for those attacking embassies to follow. “What has happened is a great event, and these efforts should come together in one goal, which is to expel the embassies of America from the lands of the Muslims,” the group said. It called on protests to continue in Muslim nations “to set the fires blazing at these embassies.” It also called on “our Muslim brothers in Western nations to fulfill their duties in supporting God’s prophet ... because they are the most capable of reaching them and vexing them.” The U.S called the Yemen al-Qaida branch the most dangerous threat after it plotted a series of attempted attacks , including the Christmas 2009 failed bombing of a passenger jet. It has suffered a series of blows since, including the recent killing in a drone strike of its number two-leader, Saeed al-Shihri. Yemen’s U.S.-backed government has been waging an offensive against the group, taking back territory and cities in the south that the group’s fighters seized last year. So far, there has been no evidence of a direct role by al-Qaida in the protests. U.S. and Libyan officials are investigating whether the protests were a cover for militants, possibly al-Qaida sympathizers, to carry out a coordinated attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi and kill Americans. Washington has deployed FBI investigators to try and track down militants behind the attack. The United States sent an

elite, 50-member Marine unit to Yemen’s capital to bolster security at the embassy there, which protesters broke into on Thursday and then tried again to assault Friday. A similar team was dispatched to Tripoli, Libya, on Wednesday after the deadly attack the night before on the Benghazi consulate. But the Sudanese government said Saturday it had refused to allow a similar Marine deployment to the embassy in Khartoum. Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Karti declined the request, saying Sudan is capable of protecting diplomatic missions, the state news agency

said. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Sudan’s government “has recommitted itself both publicly and privately to continue to protect our mission.” She said the U.S. has requested additional security

precautions. Later in the day, the State Department issued a travel warning for Sudan and Tunisia, ordering home nonessential personnel and family members of staff at posts in both countries over security concerns.

The department added that while Sudan’s government has taken steps to limit the activities of terrorist groups, some remain there and have threatened to attack Western interests. The terrorist threat level remains critical, it said.

Amish shunning is central to Ohio hate crime trial, hair cutting attacks THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND – In the stern, self-regulating world of the Amish, those who act out time and again by wearing the wrong clothing, going to movies or otherwise flouting the church’s doctrine can find themselves utterly alone. Fellow Amish in rare instances won’t break bread with them at the same table, won’t work with them and won’t worship with them under the religion’s centuriesold practice of shunning. In stricter settlements, shunning can break apart families, cutting off all contact between parents and their children. The Amish take the tradition so seriously that most churches won’t accept someone who has been shunned until they make it right with those who’ve disciplined them. At the root of Amish haircutting attacks in Ohio and the federal hate crime trial that followed, prosecutors say, was a dispute over religious differences and a decision by Amish bishops to overrule the leader of a breakaway group who had shunned his former follow-

ers. Amish scholars say taking away a bishop’s edict was unheard of and stunned communities far and wide. Six years ago, about 300 Amish bishops gathered in Pennsylvania to discuss the group’s leader, Sam Mullet Sr., who had ordered the shunning of families that left his settlement near the West Virginia panhandle. Mullet had come to the attention of the bishops because, according to witnesses at his trial, there were concerns he was brain-washing community members. Prosecutors would later say he forced men to sleep in chicken coops as punishment, and one woman testified that Mullet coerced women at his settlement into having sex with him so he could turn them into better wives. The bishops eventually vetoed Mullet’s shunning of the others, infuriating him to the point that he sought revenge last fall in a series of five hair-cutting attacks, prosecutors say. They charged Mullet and 15 of his followers with hate crimes because they contend they acted over religious differences and targeted the hair and beards of the Amish

because of its spiritual significance in the faith. All could face lengthy prison terms if convicted on the charges that also include conspiracy and obstructing justice. Jurors began deliberating in the trial Thursday morning.

Woman’s example was an inspiration BY KATHY HANKS The Hutchinson News khanks@hutchnews.com

Last week, friends of Rhonda Elliott received an email from her before her upcoming surgery. If all went well, she was hoping to be at the church service at the Kansas State Fair ELLIOTT today. Then she thanked everyone for their prayers and wrote, “I love each one of you forever.” Elliott, 74, died Sept.10, from complications during the surgery, leaving a large hole in the Hutchinson community. “We have lost our Betsy Ross, Joan of Arc and Mother Teresa,” said Connie Schmitt, who considered Elliott her mentor and kindred spirit. “She was the nicest, kindest person you would ever know. Not only have I lost a friend and patriot, Hutchinson has lost an outstanding community member.” Elliott arrived in Hutchinson in 1965 with her husband, Gene. From the start, she was very involved in the community through her church. She also served as a committeewoman for the Republican Party and in recent years co-founded the local Patriot Freedom Alliance. Along with Gene, whom friends described as her soul mate, she is survived by sons Tim and Kip, and daughter Jodee Bowen, and nine grandchildren. Friends of Elliott find it very difficult to grasp that their dear friend has died.

Muriel A. Jacob BENTLEY –Muriel Ann Jacob, 80, beloved wife, mom, grandma, sister and friend, passed away on Friday, September14, 2012. She was born in Valley Center, Kansas, to James Roy Vanley and Edith (Fox) Vanley.

She was preceded in death by her parents, James and

She will be painfully missed. “Rhonda lived her faith, and her prayer life was a gift to all,” said Schmitt. “When Rhonda informed you she was praying for you or over your situation, you immediately felt a spirit of relief and hope.” Ken Willard met Elliott when she was chair of the Republican Party. They also attended the same Sunday school class at the First Church of the Nazarene. He recalled how recently, during the primary election night when Willard lost his close race for the Legislature, it was Elliott who asked that everyone in the room pray together. “She prayed for me and that God’s purpose would be found in all of this,” Willard said. “We have no doubts that she is gracing heaven.” Vicki Adrian also attended Sunday school with Elliott, and adored her. No matter what they were studying, she had a depth of knowledge of the Bible. “She was in love with the Lord and it showed through in very aspect of her life,” Adrian said. Elliott was a very classy woman who never knew a stranger, according to her friends. “She was one incredible woman and I aspire to be like her. She would do anything for someone else and she was a very godly woman, a great example of incredible faith and character,” Adrian said. Schmitt said that Elliott was a greeter at church on Sundays. “She could make you feel better, no matter what,” Schmitt said. “She will be greeting us in heaven.”

A Hutchinson native who is attending college in Tampa, Fla., rubbed elbows with well-known politicians during the Republican National Convention. C.J. Johnson is a young Republican who cares about the future of the United States. INSIDE “I believe that the ReSee Out publican Parand About ty offers many photos on solutions to B4 our country’s problems – we stand for lower taxes, less government, traditional family values and much more,” he said. While at the convention, he was able to meet Rudy Giuliani; Herman Cain; Ann Coulter; Gov. Jan Brewer, R-Ariz.; John Bolton; Tagg Romney; Karl Rove; Gov. Nikki Haley, RS.C.; The group had breakfast as a delegation and then went to he convention to watch “passionate and effective” speeches, Johnson said. “Marco Rubio and Mitt Romney both connected with voters in a genuine and human way,” Johnson said. “It was incredible to be there live for those speeches and to feel the anger or excitement of the crowd.” Johnson is a student at Clearwater Christian College in Tampa. – Amy Bickel and Kristen Roderick ‘Fair’ly good change Hutchinson USD 308 moved its faculty in-service day during State Fair week from Wednesday to Friday, responding to suggestions from elementary teachers, in particular. Teachers commented favorably on the change, Superintendent Shelly Kiblinger told the school board last week. Taking Wednesday off had proved disruptive, as students looked forward to the chance to go to the fair but returned to classes tired on Thursday. Teachers also suggested that next year, it even might be better to conduct the in-service day on the first Monday of the fair, which is Dollar Day on the fairgrounds. “We did have kids absent because of Dollar Day,” Kiblinger said. – Mary Clarkin Benefit Day Pine Village, the Moundridge retirement community, is plunging into Benefit Day, its annual fundraising drive, in a big way this week.

Book offers glimpses of jobs seldom seen BY JERRY HARKAVY The Associated Press

“Hidden America: From Coal Miners to Cowboys, an Extraordinary Exploration of the Unseen People Who Make This Country Work” “Hidden America,” a collection of on-the-job profiles that shed light on occupations where work is often done out of public view, is sure to contain at least a few surprises for even the most knowledgeable reader. Who knew, for example, that the color of the coal seams that miners bore into from their cramped workplaces 500 feet below ground in eastern Ohio is white, not black? That’s because exposed areas of the mine are coated with powdered limestone that reduces the chance of fire in an environment where a wayward spark can be disastrous. Then there are the polar bear cages at an oil drilling site on a 6-acre manmade island 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle on Alaska’s North Slope. The cages were not made to house po-

lar bears but rather to provide refuge for oil rig workers who ring the alarm when they spot a bear and then jump into one of the cages. Danger of a different sort overhangs the work of air traffic controllers in the tower at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, a delayprone, vest-pocket field with tight taxiways, intersecting runways and water on three sides. Known as “swivelheads” because they’re constantly scanning in all directions, the controllers appear to be on the brink of exhaustion as they work with obsolete equipment in an understaffed facility while caught in the middle of a toxic relationship between management and their union. The coal mine, the oil rig and the control tower are arguably the most fascinating of the nine workplaces that Jeanne Marie Laskas visits in her attempt to “reintroduce America to some of its forgotten self ” by celebrating people who make life livable by providing essentials such as food, energy, transportation and trash disposal.

Music mogul set to release autobiography THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK – Music mogul Clive Davis will release an autobiography in February that will include “the excitements, the disappointments and the triumphs” of his career. The untitled book will be released through Simon & Schuster and will be written with music journalist Anthony DeCurtis. A news release says it will include “never-before-heard tales” about Davis’ work with acts like Whitney Houston, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. Financial terms were not disclosed for Davis’ book deal, but an official with knowledge of the negotiations said the deal was worth seven figures. The official was not authorized to discuss the deal and asked not to be identified. Davis has helped the careers of many top musicians from Aretha Franklin to Billy Joel to Alicia Keys. The Harvard Law School graduate founded both Arista and J Records. He’s currently the COO of Sony Music and is working on Franklin’s new album and Houston’s forthcoming greatest hits set.

Cameras can be great tools for gardeners BY DEAN FOSDICK Associated Press

Trail cameras are becoming as popular with gardeners and farmers as they are with hunters, who use them to monitor animal behavior. These remotely operated devices can detect anything moving through orchards or fields in daylight or darkness, good weather or bad. “The nature market is where our cameras were popular in the beginning, especially in Europe and the U.K.,” said Darin Stephens, product manager for Bushnell (Corp.) Trail Cameras. “We’re talking wildlife observers, scientists and backyard naturalists. “But they’re also being purchased now by people who have just been planting things in their patch. They’re seeing some incredible stuff.” That can include surprise wildlife species, such as mountain lions in territory where none were known to exist, or deer eating their fill in suburban vegetable beds. Sometimes, the trail cams also record uninvited guests pilfering melons from gardens or siphoning gasoline from farm fuel tanks. “A friend of mine has his set up to watch coyotes and other predators to safeguard his cattle herd,” said Robert Good, a wildlife watcher from rural New Market, Va. “I use mine primarily to see what’s out there that’s not supposed to be there.” Unlike pocket cameras, motion-sensitive trail cams are remotely operated by infrared sensors and powered by batteries lasting up to a year. The small, weatherproof units come in cases that can be attached to fence posts, utility poles and trees, or mounted a few feet above the ground near trails and ponds. Images can be still, timelapse or video, and many of the devices include audio. Newer models can transmit real-time images directly into computers. Prices vary from around $100 to more than $400. These optical gatekeepers have come a long way since being introduced a few decades ago, said Stephens. “We offered models with 1.3 megapixels (the number of parts in a digital image) when we started out,” he said. “That was good enough for seeing what was getting into your garbage. We have

8-meg cameras now.” That magnitude of enhanced resolution delivers magazine-quality pictures. Their content has become the stuff of photo contests, Web sites, even new business ventures. Jim Schoenike of Mequon, Wis., works in the investment service industry when he isn’t bow hunting or stalking the state’s forests and prairies. His trail-cam-generated wildlife pictures have become so popular that he’s begun imprinting and selling them on calendars, note cards and clothing. “You never really know what’s out there,” Schoenike said. “Looking at the memory card after the camera has been positioned for a while is like opening Christmas presents. I’ve come up with some uncommon pictures of bobcats when I’ve been expecting to see less cautious raccoons.”

SOME SUGGESTIONS ● “You need good quality light,” he said. “I have a bias toward pointing my cameras toward the north to avoid getting any glare from the sun.” ● Remove grass or tree limbs that might grow large enough to block sightlines or trip the camera if it’s to be left unattended for long periods. ● Limit the time you spend around the remote setup to reduce or eliminate your scent. “Human scent spooks a good many animals,” Good said.

Capturing candid wildlife images requires more thought than simply stashing a trail cam in the woods, Schoenike said.

ADVICE

Old friend throwing away his life on a pipe dream Dear Annie: I’ve been friends with a small group of people since junior high. We’re in our late 50s now, and though none of us has set the world on fire, we have good families and stable careers. All except “Joe.” Ever since he was a boy, Joe dreamed of making it big in a profession in which, with a good deal of skill and some luck, you can make a lot of money in a relatively short time. Unfortunately, Joe’s skills are no better than average, and he’s never had much luck. He hasn’t gotten further than the fringes of his dream profession, no matter how hard he’s tried. But that’s his dream, and he is absolutely sure his big break is right around the corner. His interests haven’t changed since junior high. Joe has had one entry-level job after another, with no interest in moving up the ladder. He’s never had a serious relationship. Joe is a nice guy, and we all like him, but if

Annie’s Mailbox

we hadn’t been friends all these years, no one in our group would have anything in common with him at all. A few months ago, Joe was laid off from another dead-end job, and at his age and with his haphazard work experience, he’s had no luck finding employment. Now all he talks about is moving to a big city where he’s convinced his dream would finally come true. Some guys in our group say maybe he’ll come to his senses when he fails yet again. Others believe he will end up living in a cardboard box. The rest want to find a way to get him to wake up and smell the coffee. How do we help someone who’s thrown away his entire life on an impossible dream? – Joe’s Buddies for Life Dear Buddies: Most people eventually learn the limits of their talent and find success in areas in which they can do well. And while extremely gifted people can find

Kathy Mitchell, Marcy Sugar some degree of success later in life, Joe has deluded himself into spending 50 years waiting to be “discovered.” And he obviously isn’t ready to confront that depressing fact. The kindest thing you could do for Joe is suggest he look into job counseling (or therapy) and work on becoming more successful – in any field. Dear Annie: What do you think of parents who invite everyone they know to birthday parties for their three children who are under 5? It’s like Christmas in January, May and September, and then it’s Christmas. – Disgusted in Casper, Wyo.

Dear Casper: We find nothing unusual here. These parents are celebrating their young children’s birthdays and hoping their friends and relatives want to celebrate, too. If you find the gift giving too much, it’s perfectly OK to send regrets. Dear Annie: I am responding to “Lost in the City,” whose friends deserted her after she suffered from depression. This happens even when you aren’t depressed. I have learned that even close friends you have known for decades have their own lives to live. Over time, these friendships faded, especially after I moved away. We, too, had shared life’s thrills and tragedies, and I thought they would always be by my side. They would sometimes respond to my calls and emails, but then would disappear until I made contact again. It was a long time before I finally gave up. I was upset for years, but finally

realized that life just got in the way. I honestly don’t think they dropped off the radar on purpose, and I don’t question myself anymore as to what I may have done. It wasn’t personal. However, I encourage “Lost” to make new friends, as I have done, and I am confident she will lead a happier, more productive life. And regarding those loved ones you “lost,” you haven’t really lost them if you keep them in your heart. – That’s Just the Way It Is Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Schools re-enact classic film football game THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. – It took almost three decades, but the “Ampipe Bulldogs” football team finally evened the score – even without Tom Cruise on the field. Two western Pennsylvania high school football teams re-enacted on Friday night the game in “All the Right Moves” that was filmed in Johnstown in 1983. There was even a secondhalf downpour and a fumbled snap, just like in the movie, the (Johnstown) Tribune-Democrat reported. But this time Ampipe won by three points rather than losing by two. Johnstown High School, playing as Ampipe, prevailed over Westmont Hilltop, playing the rival Walnut Heights, 20-17 before about 4,500 fans who crammed into Trojan Stadium for a commemoration of the filming.

Johnstown’s players wore gold Ampipe uniforms with black numbers rather than their traditional Columbia blue and black, while Westmont sported white jerseys with red numbers. “It was big stepping in here, especially since Tom Cruise was in this film,” Johnstown junior quarterback Deion Moore said. “We felt it was our duty since Ampipe lost last time. We wanted to come through and get this win.” The 20th Century Fox movie starred Cruise, Lea Thompson and Craig T. Nelson and featured dozens of local football players, coaches, cheerleaders, band members and students, and more than 10,000 Johnstown residents filled Point Stadium nearly 30 years ago during filming of the big game. “We got one back for coach Nickerson,” Johnstown coach Tony Penna Jr. said, referring to Nel-

son’s character, coach Vern Nickerson. As fans filled the stadium, the movie soundtrack played and a Johnstown staffer walked the sideline with Piper, a white and brown bulldog, recognizing the movie team’s mascot bulldog that appears in a pep rally prior to the big game. As game-time neared, a recorded message from “All the Right Moves” producer Steven Deutsch played. He spoke about the city’s contributions to the production and praised the coaches and athletes who trained for the film. He joked that he hoped the weather would be better than it was for the original April 1983 filming, during which the Johnstown Fire Department used hoses to create an artificial downpour. “It’s a great feeling for all of us that we created a film and experience 30 years ago that you’re remembering so fondly,” Deutsch said.

SUNDAY EVENING 6 PM

6:30

Thompson, who played Cruise’s girlfriend, Lisa, recorded a video greeting that was posted online Friday and shown during the Johnstown pep rally. She also Tweeted a photograph of her and Cruise from the movie set. Nelson, who is working on his NBC series “Parenthood,” sent a statement that was read prior to the game. Cruise’s representatives said the actor was working and unavailable. Proceeds from commemorative T-shirt sales raised money for two scholarships, one for a player from each team. “This was so huge you don’t want to take the exuberance out of the kids,”Penna said. “We really didn’t try to fight that stuff. It ended up becoming a lot bigger than even we thought. You just had to embrace it. The community was excited. The school was excited, and they’re kids.”

To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging. Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 7 — For about two weeks, rely on experts.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 9 — Take advantage of a creative boost while you can. Make the necessary phone calls and your work effort doubles. Love permeates the gathering. Avoid drawing attention, for now. Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is a 9 — You’re getting to the good stuff. It’s a good time for romance ... and it’s getting easier to express love, now and for the next few weeks. Outdoor activities add new zest. Chill. Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is an 8 — Get into home renovation for the next few weeks, and make enviable progress. The writing is on the wall. Do the nearby chores before venturing farther. A new friendship begins. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 7 — Your curiosity is aroused now (and for the next three weeks). Listen carefully, and learn more than you think you need to know. You’ll be grateful. Unexpected

income arrives. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 9 — In the days ahead, you’ll think of lots of new ways to make money. But for now, soak up the acknowledgements coming your way. Write down your experiences. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 6 — Buckle up for some great things ahead. You’re getting even smarter. Don’t let anyone sell you on something that doesn’t align with your heart. Possible delays don’t bother you. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is an 8 — Spend some time in a quiet space, reading or writing to take advantage of the peace. A bit of skepticism comes in handy. Finish old business for awhile. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is an 8 — Begin a new future plan, and don’t forget your friends in the present. For a few weeks, provide facts. All is not as you would like it to be. A lesson gets served on a platter. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is an 8 — Don’t let anybody push you around. Complete a class you failed or dropped before. Learn and accept leadership. Sell something you don’t need, and add to your savings. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 7 — Don’t fall for their reasons, follow your passion instead. You are better at playing than working for the next few days. Use your talents. Ask interesting questions. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is an 8 — Use the foreseeable future to implement change. Run a reality check. Cut costs, as you’re more patient with finances now and tomorrow. Count your blessings. (c)2012 bY NANCY BLACK DISTRIBUTED BY TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES, INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

should it make after the lead of a low club? At most of the tables a club was led to the jack and ace and, at most tables, East shifted to a trump — an attractive play, but not good enough. Try it. Better is to simply return a club, a defense found by Glenn Milgrim, among others. Declarer won and led the queen of hearts to the king and ace, and then tried to sneak a heart through by returning the three of hearts to the seven. East won with the jack and reverted to clubs, declarer ruffing on the table. The jack of spades was covered by the king and won with the ace and East perforce won the spade ten continuation. Now a fourth round of clubs promoted the eight of spades to the setting trick. Defeating the contract one trick was good enough to score 76 of the possible 90 available on the board.

This deal is from the first semifinal session of the von Zedtwitz Life Master Pairs at the recent ACBL Summer North American Championships held in Philadelphia. Should four spades be defeated or

LOOK WHO’S TALKING

company says Hutchinson group ‘clear option.’ BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News jgreen@hutchnews.com

Hutchinson-based Lowen IT announced Wednesday it has purchased the IT Consulting Division of IdeaTek, a Buhler company that specializes in fiber optics. The purchase, formalized Aug. 21, means that IdeaTek can focus its efforts in fiber optic telecommunication services while Lowen IT assists IdeaTek’s client base

with information technology consultation, network implementation and IT management, the announcement stated. “Taking on this expanded client base was a natural fit for what we are doing right now,” said James Starkweather, Operations Manager with Lowen IT. “Because of our recent expansion into the Wichita market, we have had to build our support infrastructure in order to maintain our quick response times to our customers.” Both IdeaTek IT Consulting Division and Lowen IT will work together to make sure that the transition for

IdeaTek’s focus today is on the sustainable deployment of communications services in rural and underserved areas of Kansas.

and look forward to working with them in a strategic partnership to deploy nextgeneration telecommunication and Internet services for commercial customers in the Hutchinson area.” The sale of the division involves no transfer of employees, Starkweather said, only client accounts. He declined to say how many accounts the purchase involved. “They’re all over – Hutchinson, McPherson, Buhler, Inman, Haven, Hillsboro – and greater Reno County and beyond,” Starkweather said. Lowen IT is a computer repair, network management and IT services provider

IdeaTek customers is smooth and hassle-free, Starkweather said. IdeaTek will continue to provide Internet and communication services to all of its customers, said IdeaTek President Daniel Friesen “IdeaTek wanted to focus on rural telecommunications and Internet services,” Friesen said. “We performed an extensive search for an IT company that would continue our reputation of quality customer-oriented service. Lowen IT was the clear option based on their reputation and capabilities. We are confident that Lowen IT will serve our IT customers well

His initial career, after all, was as a biology teacher, starting at Trinity High School, where he was also the football coach. While teaching and coaching, he also got involved as an emergency medical service technician for then Hutchinson Hospital.

“It was kind of a passion,” Wells recalled. “I really enjoyed that stuff.” It was while working at the hospital and studying for his master’s degree, Wells said, that he was offered a job in pest control by a man he’d met while coaching. The person served as an official at some of his games. “He made an offer I couldn’t refuse,” Well said. “I worked at his company (Robert-

At that point, Wells said, the owner of another pest control company – “Doc” Mitchell of Mitchell Pest Control – which often contracted the company Wells worked for to do termite control, offered his business for sale. When he and a partner bought the company, Wells said, he was licensed for both general pest control and termite control. After about three years, the partner,

Microsoft finds malware on new computers in China BY RICHARD LARDNER Associated Press

WASHINGTON – A customer in Shenzhen, China, took a new laptop out of its box and booted it up for the first time. But as the screen lit up, the computer began taking on a life of its own. The machine, triggered by a virus hidden in its hard drive, be-

gan searching across the Internet for another computer. The laptop, supposedly in pristine, superfast, direct-from-the-factory condition, had instantly become part of an illegal, global network capable of attacking websites, looting bank accounts and stealing personal data.

How you can get a jump on junk mail BY THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU

The Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that 44 percent of junk mail is thrown away without ever being opened or read. The production of junk mail destroys 2.6 million trees per year. It adds 1 billion pounds of trash annually to our landfills. Yet the flood of this unwanted, unsolicited mail continues to rise, even in the Internet age. Your Better Business Bureau has advice for those who wish to sandbag their homes against this rising tide. Pre-approved credit-card offers Scammers and fraud artists sift through garbage to find these sorts of offers. Identity thieves can take these mailed offers and use them to open accounts in your name. That’s why it’s vital that consumers get in the habit of shredding preapproved credit-card offers before throwing them away. The Federal Trade Commission recommends that consumers call 1 (888) 5678688 or visit www.optoutprescreen.com to request that you not be sent such offers. You may choose to have such mail stopped for either five years or permanently. This phone number and website are operated by the major consumer-reporting

companies. You will be asked to provide some personal information when you sign up to opt out, such as name, phone number, date of birth and Social Security number. The FTC assures that in this case it is OK to reveal that private information to this confidential and secure website.

junk mail that their members send, it is still worth the effort. Their membership includes almost 3,600 organizations that send direct mail, representing most of the biggest companies in that business. But remember that this step will not stop all of the junk mail you receive.

Junk mail overall For all of those unwanted catalogs and other annoying direct mail that comes unsolicited into your mailbox and into your home, the Direct Marketing Association can help. Through their website at www.dmachoice.org, consumers may register their information and be put on a “delete” file that will reduce much if not most of your unsolicited mail. There is a $1 processing fee. If you prefer to register by mail, send the $1 along with your request to: DMAchoice, Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 643, Carmel, NY 10512. The DMA also has an Email Preference Service (eMPS) to help you reduce spam emails. That option is free and good for six years. It’s also available at their website. Although the DMA services only impact the

Other options There is, of course, an app for this, too. One free app that has been getting some attention lately is called PaperKarma. It’s available for most smartphone platforms. According to PaperKarma users, sign-up is easy and quick. Many are saying it works well, though it’s important to remember that there is a several-weeks lag time between when you request a stoppage and when it begins taking effect. PaperKarma works on all types of junk mail. Coupons, catalogs, fliers and mailers are all included in the service. The user takes a photo of the unwanted mail and the PaperKarma staff proceeds to have your name removed from that junk mailer’s list. 41pounds.org is a website that got its name from the average 41 pounds of junk

mail that each of us receives each year. With their online registration form, you fill out your information and send $35, and in return they will contact 20 to 30 major direct mail companies on your behalf. For six years you will receive nothing from those mailers. A portion of your fee ($10) will go to environmental groups. Another website that claims to help remove consumers from catalog mailing lists is www.catalogchoice.org. This site requires that you submit information online on what specific junk-mail senders you wish to block. It is a free service. Most of us do not welcome junk mail. The United States Post Office just signed an agreement with a large direct mail company, Valassis, which sends the RedPlum discount pack mailers, giving that company a discount mailing fee. More junk mail is on the way. Contact the Better Business Bureau with your junk-mail concerns at (800) 856-2417 or go to our website at www.kansasplains.bbb.org. Roberta Namee, with the Better Business Bureau of Kansas, can be reached at 1 (800) 856-2417 or www.kansasplains.bbb.org. Also: Check out the bureau on Facebook.

Delegation will tout state’s ag strengths BY THE NEWS STAFF

TOPEKA – A delegation of farmers, ranchers and agribusiness leaders from across Kansas will showcase Kansas’ strong agricultural sector during an upcoming 10-day trade mission to South Korea and China. Kansas Secretary of Agriculture Dale Rodman will lead the delegation, which departed Saturday. While in South Korea and China, the 18-member delegation will meet with business and governmental leaders and with existing buyers of Kansas agricultural products. The trade delegation will also meet with potential new buyers and tour importing and processing facilities. “Global markets play a

key role in ensuring the profitability of Kansas farms, ranches and agribusinesses,” Rodman said. “This trade mission will not only give Kansas farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses an opportunity to meet with current buyers and potential new buyers, but it will also give them an opportunity to see American products on store shelves in South Korea and China and give them a firsthand view of agriculture in these rapidly growing nations.” The delegation will begin the mission with a three-day stop in Seoul, South Korea, where the group will explore ways for Kansas farmers and ranchers to benefit more from the U.S.-South Korea Free Trade Agreement. The next seven days will

be spent between Beijing and Shanghai, China. While in China, the group will learn more about the Chinese marketplace and build a greater understanding of China’s food needs to feed its growing middle class. In both countries, the Kansas delegation will work to build relationships with new buyers while also thanking current buyers of Kansas agricultural products. In 2011, Kansas agricultural exports to South Korea totaled $125.2 million and exports to China totaled $49.7 million. South Korea and the U.S. entered into a free trade agreement March 15, under which South Korea eliminated or began phasing out tariffs and quotas on a broad range of agricultural prod-

ucts, which will allow Korean consumers more access to more American products at a more affordable price. Leaders from Kansas Farm Bureau, the Kansas Beef Council, Kansas Pork Commission, Kansas Wheat Commission, Kansas Soybean Commission, Kansas Corn Commission, Agtech, Inc. and SureFire Ag will represent Kansas on the mission.

NYSE paying $5M fine to settle charges on data BY MARCY GORDON AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON – The New York Stock Exchange is paying $5 million to settle federal civil charges that it gave some customers an unfair head start by providing them with trading data ahead of the wider public. It marked the first time the Securities and Exchange Commission ever imposed a fine on an exchange. The NYSE and its parent NYSE Euronext also agreed in the settlement to hire an independent consultant to review their systems for delivering market data. They neither admitted nor denied the SEC’s allegations. The NYSE provides tailored data on stock quotes and trades directly to certain customers. The SEC said from 2008 to mid-2010 the exchange violated a rule by distributing the data to those customers before putting it in its global information transmissions. The SEC said the exchange failed to monitor the speed by which its computers deliver the customized data packages, compared with its

global transmissions. The SEC also censured the exchange. Censure brings the possibility that the NYSE could face a stiffer sanction if the alleged violation is repeated. NYSE Euronext said the “technology issues” which caused the problems cited by the SEC have been resolved. Changes to the exchange’s computer system were completed in 2010 and 2011, the company said in a statement. Most of the differences in delivery times for the data were milliseconds, NYSE Euronext said. The company noted the SEC didn’t accuse the exchange of intentional misconduct or causing harm to investors from the data delays. The SEC said the difference in speeds between the customized data for some clients and the wider data transmission became magnified on May 6, 2010, when the Dow Jones industrial average fell nearly 600 points in five minutes. By then, the exchange had fixed the software problems that had caused the differences in delivery times in about half of the affected computer servers.

tion hours.” Chemicals they can and desire to use have changed over the years, with many no longer available. But one of the biggest changes, Wells said, is in termite control, which today makes up about 40 percent of their business. “We’re authorized in the area of Sentricon termite baiting,” he said. “We hardly use any chemical treatments any more like we used to. We found with the Sentricon system we’re not dropping hundreds and hundreds of pounds of chemical in the soil like we used to. It’s an extremely green method of controlling termites.”

After about three years, Helen, who worked at a law firm by day and helped with the business’s books at night, joined the company full time. “We started out in the basement of our house,” Wells recalled. “After a few years, we officed out of space in St. Elizabeth’s Hospital on 20th for three or four years. Then we bought this building (at 2515 E. 14th Ave.) and moved everything here. We’ve had two expansions since then.” Al and Helen, while both from Garden City, incidentally met at college and married between their sophomore and junior years. They moved to Hutchinson upon graduation. The company has grown from the original 2½ employees to 19 today, including the Wells’ sons, Jeff and Mark. Jeff is one of three employees who’ve been with the company more than 18 years. The others are Ken Watkins and Terry Savoy. Besides boasting longevity of employees, the company still has many of its original customers as well, Wells said. “I had a customer call the other day who was the 152nd customer we had,” he said. “When you’ve got over 10,000 customers a year, he had to be there very early on.” While they primarily serve Hutchinson and the surrounding area, the company has customers from Liberal to Kansas City, Wells said. “Most of those accounts are attributed to people who lived in Hutch who moved away,” Wells said.

When they go to service those customers, however, they also often add more through references and word of mouth. The business has also expanded from general pest control and termites to lawn care. “We don’t mow, we do fertilizers and chemical treatments for lawns,” Wells explained. “We started doing that four years ago when we bought a business in the St. John/Stafford area. We don’t advertise it, but it’s been growing.” The company also carries a license for wildlife management, allowing it to trap skunks and possums and do pigeon control. That aspect

of the business has also grown the past four years, after the city stopped offering the service. “We had a rattlesnake brought in the other day,” Wells said, noting, “Jeff takes care of the snakes.” While he skipped the college course, Wells and all his employees must continually update their education in pest control and chemical management. “We do a lot of the education and training at our own facility,” he said. “We also attend seminars by the Kansas Pest Control Association and Kansas Department of Agriculture, as well as national seminars, to pick up continuing educa-

Consumer bureau off to aggressive start BY DANIEL WAGNER AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON – The new federal agency charged with enforcing consumer finance laws is emerging as an ambitious sheriff, taking on companies for deceptive fees and marketing and unmoved by protests that its tactics go too far. In the 14 months it has existed, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has launched dozens of enforcement probes and issued more than 100 subpoenas demanding data, testimony and marketing materials – sometimes amounting to millions of pages – from companies that include credit card lenders, for-profit colleges and mortgage servicers. More than two dozen interviews with agency officials and industry executives offered sweeping insight into the new agency’s behind-the-scenes efforts, which have taken the financial industry off guard and have been far more aggressive than previously known. The number of subpoenas and probes was confirmed by agency, industry and trade group officials who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the subpoenas bar both sides from discussing them. The bureau’s actions have many banks, payday lenders and credit card companies racing to adjust. They’re tightening their record-keeping and budgeting for defense lawyers, according to attorneys and trade group executives who work with them. The companies themselves are reluctant to discuss the bureau because they don’t want to be seen as criticizing a regulator that is still choosing its battles. The financial crisis of 2008 led to far-reaching changes to how the U.S. government oversees financial companies. The consumer bureau, created by the 2010 financial overhaul law known as the Dodd-Frank Act, gained new powers to reach deep into the most mundane decisions of money-transfer agents, auto lenders and virtually anyone else who provides financial products and services. For regular Americans, the bureau is the most visible result of the shake-up in financial oversight. Its decisions are changing the mortgage application and foreclosure process, the way people lodge complaints against financial companies and, in some cases, what fees they can be charged. “The CFPB is a new animal, and they have to establish their turf and a way of doing business,” says Jack Conway, the attorney general of Kentucky and an outspoken critic of for-profit colleges. “If that breaks from standard practice of other regulators, I don’t have a huge problem with it.” For companies, the bureau embodies a bitter debate over whether the government has gone too far, imposing huge costs on firms that already operate legally but now must prove it. Why should regulators increase companies’ costs, critics ask, in an economy that has many struggling to stay afloat? Some industries, such as

Consumer Financial Protection Bureau enforcement director Kent Markus poses for a photo Aug. 29 in Washington. For the 14 months it has existed, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has launched dozens of enforcement probes and issued more than 100 subpoenas demanding customer data, employee testimony and marketing materials from companies that include credit card lenders, forprofit colleges and mortgage servicers. mortgage insurers and forprofit schools, are pushing back. They say the consumer bureau is redefining laws – deeming as illegal practices that were long acceptable to other regulators. In other industries, the bureau’s subpoenas are spurring action. American Express, for example, is overhauling some marketing policies and setting aside money that it might be forced to refund to customers. Questions about the bureau’s subpoenas and other enforcement tactics will likely come up Thursday morning, when bureau Director Richard Cordray is scheduled to testify before the Senate Banking Committee. So far, the bureau’s aggressive approach has netted one high-profile win: an agreement by Capital One Financial, the fifth-biggest U.S. credit card issuer, to refund $150 million in fees directly to the accounts of 2.5 million customers – without the complicated paperwork often associated with class-action settlements on behalf of consumers. In July, the bureau accused Capital One’s sales team of tricking customers into buying add-on services like credit protection and identity theft protection. Phone agents told people the services were free or mandatory or offered more benefits than they did, the government said. Capital One also agreed to pay fines of $25 million to the CFPB and $35 million to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, a separate federal agency that oversees its banking operations. The company did not admit any wrongdoing. As part of the same probe, officials are scrutinizing at least three other companies, according to public filings: card issuers American Express and Discover Financial Services; and Intersections Inc., which provides the add-on services sold by banks. American Express and

Discover have said in public filings that they expect similar enforcement actions and have overhauled their marketing of add-on products. Intersections, whose biggest bank customers are Bank of America and Citigroup, is cooperating with regulators. All three declined to comment on the probe. The consumer bureau’s history is short and contentious. In the wake of the 2008 meltdown, advocates argued that existing regulators had allowed risky and abusive financial practices to spread and inflate a disastrous housing bubble. On the other side were Republican lawmakers and bank lobbyists who said the bureau would duplicate the efforts of existing bank regulators and the Federal Trade Commission. The bureau’s champions – mainly Democrats and consumer advocates – won, and in July 2011 it took over enforcement of 18 existing consumer laws. Since then, it has used a range of powers to clamp down on what it calls problematic lending, misleading marketing and secret deals between companies that end up costing consumers. The bureau can’t indict people or companies criminally; it refers possible criminal cases to the Department of Justice. Still, the agency’s office of enforcement wields a potent tool: the threat of civil charges against violators of consumer laws involving money transfers, foreclosures, payday loans and virtually every other financial product or service used by consumers. Companies that inhabit these financial backwaters have never faced strict, ongoing oversight by federal officials. They say they feel dragged down by the costs of responding to the investigations. For some banks and industrial lenders, the new oversight may be so costly that they stop offering some products, says Bill Himpler,

India opposition parties protest economic reforms THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW DELHI – Angry Indian opposition parties protested on Saturday against the government’s decision to open the country’s huge retail market to foreign retailers. The government’s surprise announcement Friday that it will allow foreign investment in retail and aviation and the sale of minority stakes in four state-run companies evoked sharp criticism from opposition parties and some of the ruling Congress party’s coalition allies. A day earlier, the government announced a hike in the price of diesel fuel.

Hundreds of supporters of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party held a rally in New Delhi demanding that the government reverse its decisions, saying they would hurt the poor. Shouting “Down with Manmohan Singh’s government” and “Roll back the diesel hikes,” angry protesters climbed over barricades erected by police on the road. They burned an effigy symbolizing what they called the “corrupt government” before dispersing. In Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal state, the top elected leader, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, led a

large rally protesting the government’s economic reform policy. Banerjee, a key coalition partner, gave the government 72 hours to reverse its decision to open the supermarket sector. In Kerala state in the south, shops were closed and public transport was halted after opposition Communist parties and the BJP called a general strike. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh defended the hike in diesel prices, saying it was “vital” for the country’s energy security. “Our energy prices are out of line with world prices,” he said.

vice president of the American Financial Services Association, a trade group for card companies, mortgage lenders and finance companies. He says the bureau’s tactics put companies on the defensive. “It doesn’t leave somebody with the best feeling that what they’re trying to do is ensure compliance so much as create a gotcha situation,” Himpler says. Kent Markus, who heads up the bureau’s enforcement office, says the costs are necessary to make sure companies aren’t preying on consumers. “We want to make it more expensive to break the law than to abide by it,” he says. Companies that receive subpoenas didn’t necessarily do anything wrong. The documents, officially called civil investigative demands, mean the officials are probing an issue that the company is involved in. Both the agency and the companies are barred from discussing these early investigations, and declined to comment on them. Among the other cases occupying the 100-odd lawyers, analysts and accountants working for the consumer bureau’s enforcement division: ● Mortgage-insurance companies transferred billions of dollars to banks that offered mortgage loans. The money came from hefty premiums charged to borrowers who couldn’t afford big down payments. Critics say the deals amounted to insurers paying the banks kickbacks in exchange for a slice of their customers’ business. Mortgage insurers say the deals were permitted by their previous regulator, the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Radian Group Inc., Genworth Financial Inc., American International Group Inc. and MGIC Investment Corp. all received subpoenas, according

to their public filings. ● High-cost loans made by auto dealers and resold to banks or investors. Loans to borrowers with spotty credit histories can carry additional fees and interest rates many times the rates on mainstream loans. The consumer bureau issued a subpoena to DriveTime Automotive Group Inc., which bills itself as the nation’s largest car dealer targeting people with bad credit. The company says it is cooperating. ● In July, the bureau won a temporary restraining order against two California businessmen who it says preyed on at-risk homeowners in more than 25 states. The businessmen, Chance Gordon and Abraham Michael Pessar, promised people that their companies could prevent foreclosures and charged thousands in illegal, upfront fees – sometimes encouraging people to skip mortgage payments to cover them, the bureau said in court papers. Pessar says he is in talks with authorities to settle the case. Gary Kurtz, a lawyer for Gordon, says his client’s actions were legal and that he had a much higher success rate with borrowers than what the government has alleged. ● ITT Educational Services Inc. and Corinthian Colleges Inc., which run for-profit colleges, are turning over documents related to the “advertising, marketing or origination of private

student loans,” they said in public filings. Consumer bureau officials are looking at how the companies subsidized private loans for some students, says Conway, the Kentucky attorney general. Corinthian has provided documents, but is petitioning the bureau to scrap or modify the subpoena, it said in a filing last month. It’s often smaller companies that have a harder time adjusting to the demands from the bureau. Some have flown under the regulatory radar for years, and have never budgeted for rigorous record-keeping or defense lawyers. Oversight of many of these firms used to fall under the Federal Trade Commission, an agency that was spread especially thin. It oversaw payday loans and foreclosures as well as almost every other consumer product – shoes, for example. The consumer bureau deals exclusively with financial products, sold by banks or any other kind of company. “It’s the FTC on steroids,” says attorney Jonathan Pompan, who represents companies being investigated by the consumer agency for the law firm Venable LLP in Washington. Because of the consumer bureau’s narrower focus, Pompan says, its enforcement team is in a stronger position to go after financial products that the bureau thinks might harm consumers. As it pursues its investigations, the consumer agency is using its bully pulpit to discourage abuse of consumers and encourage better financial disclosure. Announcing the action against Capital One, for example, Director Cordray said the agency had put “all financial institutions on notice about these prohibited practices” by warning consumers to question add-on fees. The bureau’s enforcement team also collaborates closely with supervisors, the beat-cop regulators who conduct routine exams of some types of companies. In the Capital One case, it was dayto-day supervisors who spotted call center operators lying to push add-on products and shared their observations with enforcement lawyers. Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate from Massachusetts who is credited with proposing the agency, says the Capital One case reflects the agency’s emergence as a consequential enforcer of financial laws. “They didn’t start with easy pickings – they went straight to the heart of the problem,” Warren says. “It’s a sober agency. It’s a careful agency. But it’s not timid.”

Report: US banks subject of money laundering probe THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK – Regulators are investigating whether several major U.S. banks failed to monitor transactions properly, allowing criminals to launder money, according to a New York Times story. The newspaper cited officials who it said spoke on the condition of anonymity. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the federal agency that oversees the biggest banks, is leading the money-laundering investigation, according to the Times. The report said the OCC could soon take action against JPMorgan Chase & Co., and that it is also investigating Bank of America Corp. Money laundering allows people to make money – often obtained illegally – appear like it came from another source. The OCC didn’t immediately comment. JPMorgan and Bank of America declined to comment. The financial industry is struggling to mend its public image. Four years after the financial crisis, banks are getting closer scrutiny. And regulators are under pressure to show that they’re not missing any questionable activity. This summer, British

bank Barclays PLC settled charges that it had manipulated a key global interest rate. Standard Chartered PLC, also based in the U.K., agreed to settle charges that it had improperly processed money for Iran, brought by the New York Department of Financial Services after the bank voluntarily informed regulators that it was reviewing relevant practices. In the spring, JPMorgan surprised shareholders with an unexpected trading loss. If the OCC takes action, it could be similar to a ceaseand-desist order that it filed against Citigroup in April. At the time, the OCC said that Citi had deficient internal controls and anti-money laundering procedures. In bank regulation, a ceaseand-desist order doesn’t mean that a bank has to shut down, but it is a serious sanction that requires a bank to change its practices. Citi had already told the regulator that from 2006 to 2010, it had “failed to adequately monitor” some of its transactions connected to “foreign correspondent banking.” The order in April didn’t make any new, specific accusations. But it did instruct Citigroup to tighten its rules so it could improve compliance

with the Bank Secrecy Act and related regulations. The act requires financial institutions to report suspicious activity and to put rules in place to try to make money laundering impossible for customers. Last year, JPMorgan paid $88 million to settle charges from the Treasury that it had unlawfully processed money for Cuba, Iran, Sudan and Liberia. At the time, JPMorgan said it had had no intent to violate regulations. It pointed out that it oversaw “hundreds of millions of transactions and customer records per day, and annual error rates are a tiny fraction of a percent.” It’s not expected that banks would be accused of trying to show support for countries like Cuba and Iran. It’s more likely that they would be accused of faulty oversight that made any unlawful transactions possible. The industry has maintained that such violations are almost always unintentional. According to the Times, the Justice Department and the Manhattan district attorney’s office are also involved. The Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office and the Manhattan district attorney’s office declined to comment.

More baby boomers aspire to careers with social purpose BY DAVE CARPENTER AP Personal Finance Writer

CHICAGO – Here go the baby boomers again, reinventing themselves and bucking tradition as they bear down on retirement. This time they’re leading a push into so-called encore careers – paid work that combines personal meaning with social purpose – in their 50s and 60s. As many as 9 million people ages 44 to 70 already are in such careers as the second or third acts of their working lives, according to nonprofit think tank Encore.org. But that number is poised to multiply as many boomers and others take steps to combine making a living with making a difference. Another 31 million older workers are interested in finding encore careers, based on a 2011 survey by the nonprofit. A mixture of longer lifespans, layoffs, shifting cultural attitudes and financial realities is causing this growing urge among over50s to seek out more purposeful work. Sometimes it’s just an itch to do something more purposeful in retirements that can now last for three decades, while still pulling in needed income. The demographics of 78 million baby boomers should ensure that this careers shift accelerates, says Encore.org vice president Marci Alboher. “This trend has the potential to be a new social norm much the way that the dream of the golden years, of a leisure-based retirement, was an aspiration for the generation beALBOHER fore,” she says. Alboher, whose soon-to-bereleased “The Encore Career Handbook” is an invaluable resource for older workers looking for purposeful career alternatives, discussed the phenomenon in an interview. Here are edited excerpts: Q: What steps can be taken to lay the groundwork for an encore career? A: Start by thinking about your own interests. What would you want to do if you weren’t doing what you’ve been doing for the last 20 or 30 years? What issues matter enough that you would want to volunteer your time or talents if you knew you could make a difference? Let yourself dream a little. Identify people who have reinvented themselves in a way that’s helping their community or the world. Ask how they made the transition. You might find something that resonates with you. The best thing you can do to actually get started is to volunteer. Check out AARP’s http://createthegood.org , http://www.volunteermatch.org and, for both work and volunteer opportunities, www.idealist.org . Q: What fields offer the

‘ENCORE JOBS’ A list of some “encore jobs” – those with community or social value – that are anticipated to have high need or demand in coming years for workers looking to make career shifts in their 50s or 60s, according to “The Encore Career Handbook”: SOCIAL SERVICES, COUNSELING AND COACHING Bereavement/grief counselor Child care worker Pastoral counselor Addiction counselor Career/vocational counselor Career coach Social worker Elder advocate and gerontology worker HEALTH CARE Nurse Licensed practical nurse (LPN) Registered nurse (RN) Nurse practitioner Nurse instructor Physician assistant Emergency medical techmost plentiful opportunities for meaningful work? A: Health care, education, green jobs, government, nonprofits. (www.encore.org/ work/top5 ) Health care is the No. 1 field to look at in terms of needs and opportunities. With an aging population and the changes that are coming in our health care system, there are needs and opportunities for all kinds of work whether you have a medical orientation in your background or just want to help people. Q: How useful are career coaches and how much do they cost? A: They can help if you’re stuck and think you could benefit from working one-onone with someone and being held accountable. But this professional help doesn’t come cheap. Rates can range from $80 to $90 an hour to more than $200 an hour. There are some ways to get low-cost coaching. Some coaches offer group sessions, and many community colleges offer free or low-cost coaching or career exploration courses (www.encore.org/colleges ). Local organizations focusing on encore activities have sprouted up across the country. (www.encore.org/connect/local ) Or check CareerOneStop (www.careeronestop.org ), a program run by the Labor Department, to see if there are any offerings in your area. I’m also a huge advocate of peer support groups to keep people on track. Consider creating your own encore transition group with someone or a few people you know also working on encore transitions. Q: Do these careers usually involve a big drop in income? A: Not necessarily.

nician (EMT) Home health aide Physical or occupational therapist Massage therapist Yoga instructor Patient navigator/advocate Community health worker Health or wellness coach Home modification specialist EDUCATION Teacher Teacher assistant/aide or paraprofessional Substitute teacher After-school program support staff Reading tutor Nonprofit fundraiser/development professional Grant writer Nonprofit social media manager Interim nonprofit executive director GREEN JOBS Weatherization installer/technician Solar installation trainer Energy auditor – The Associated Press If the work sounds altruistic in some way, most people assume they’ll be making less money. For people coming from high-level jobs in the for-profit sector, they very well may be facing a cut in pay. But for people whose primary career was focused in the social purpose arena – at a nonprofit, or in social work or education, where money is not the main motivator – many of these encore reinventions don’t involve a pay cut at all. Q: How big a barrier is age discrimination? A: It exists. But if you feel like your age is getting in the way of what you want to do, it could be you don’t have the proper skills for what you’re interviewing for. And that could be related to the fact you haven’t brushed up your skills in the last 20 or 30 years. I encourage people to think about what can they do to make sure that their skills are current and that they’re presenting properly. Take a close look at organizations you are thinking about working with. Do you see a welcoming and diverse workplace that values people of all ages? If not, look someplace else where you’ll be able to thrive and your experience will be valued. Q: How feasible is it to launch your own business with a social purpose? A: The social entrepreneurship sector – businesses that have a social mission as well as a financial bottom line – is growing. There’s a high interest in entrepreneurship among older workers. There are pros and cons. Being your own boss can give you more control over your life. But most people who start a business find they are working harder than ever.

Buffett finishes cancer treatment THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK – Warren Buffett says he’s done with radiation treatments for cancer, and the Oracle of Omaha seems eager to move on. The billionaire investor and chairman and CEO of investment firm Berkshire Hathaway Inc. broke the news Friday while speaking to a group of executives from newspapers he owns. “It’s a great day for me. Today I had my 44th and last day of radiation,” he said, according to the Berkshireowned Omaha World-Herald. Buffett had disclosed in the spring that he had been diagnosed with prostate can-

cer. At the time, he said the disease was detected early and wasn’t life-threatening. Any discussion of Buffett’s health raises questions about how long he can keep running his investment firm, Berkshire Hathaway. Buffett turned 82 two weeks ago and celebrated by giving away more of his $44 billion fortune to his three children, for their charitable foundations. Buffett said at the time that he was feeling fine and that his decision wasn’t related to his health. Instead, he wanted to reward his children for the progress their foundations have made on issues like ending violence against women and helping farmers in im-

poverished nations. Buffett has already pledged to give away most of his personal fortune to charity. Berkshire plans to split Buffett’s job into three parts once he is gone. The next CEO will run Berkshire, but two other men hired by Buffett in recent years will oversee investment. Buffett wants his eldest son to succeed him as chairman. With the newspaper executives, Buffett joked about planning to live to be the oldest man alive. Buffett has assembled more than 80 businesses at Berkshire including manufacturing, utility and insurance companies.

Virus ●From Page C1 even comes off. The shopper in this case was part of a team of Microsoft researchers in China investigating the sale of counterfeit software. They received a sudden introduction to malware called Nitol. The incident was revealed in court documents unsealed Thursday in a federal court in Virginia. The records describe a new front in a legal campaign against cybercrime being waged by the maker of the Windows operating system, which is the biggest target for viruses. The documents are part of a computer fraud lawsuit filed by Microsoft against a web domain registered to a Chinese businessman named Peng Yong. The company says the domain is a major hub for illicit Internet activity, home base for Nitol and more than 500 other types of malware, which makes it the largest single repository of infected software that Microsoft officials have encountered. Peng, the owner of an Internet services firm, said he was not aware of the Microsoft suit. He denied the allegations and said his company does not tolerate improper conduct on the domain, 3322.org. Three other unidentified individuals accused by Microsoft of establishing and operating the Nitol network are also named in the suit. What emerges most vividly from the court records and interviews with Microsoft officials is a disturbing picture of how vulnerable Internet users have become, in part because of weaknesses in computer supply chains. To increase their profit margins, less reputable computer manufacturers and retailers may use counterfeit copies of popular software products to build machines more cheaply. Plugging the holes is nearly impossible, especially in less regulated markets such as China, and that leaves openings for cybercriminals. “They’re really changing the ways they try to attack you,” said Richard Boscovich, a former federal prosecutor and a senior attorney in Microsoft’s digital crimes unit. Distance doesn’t equal safety. Nitol, for example, is an aggressive virus found on computers in China, the United States, Russia, Australia and Germany. Microsoft has even identified

BUSINESS servers in the Cayman Islands controlling Nitol-infected machines. All these compromised computers become part of a botnet, or collection of compromised computers; it’s one of the most invasive and persistent forms of cybercrime. Nitol appears poised to strike. Infection rates have peaked, according to Patrick Stratton, a senior manager in Microsoft’s digital crimes unit who filed a document in the court case explaining Nitol and its connection to the 3322.org domain. For Microsoft, pursuing cybercriminals is a smart business. Its Windows operating system runs most of the computers connected to the Internet. Victims of malware are likely to believe their problems stem from Windows instead of a virus they are unaware of, and that damages the company’s brand and reputation. But more than Microsoft’s image is stake when counterfeit products are tainted by malware that spreads so rapidly, Boscovich said. “It’s more than simply a traditional intellectual property issue,” Boscovich said. “It’s now become a security issue.” The investigation by Microsoft’s digital crimes unit began in August 2011 as a study into the sale and distribution of counterfeit versions of Windows. Microsoft employees in China bought 20 new computers from retailers and took them back to a home with an Internet connection. They found forged versions of Windows on all the machines and malware already installed on four. The one with Nitol, however, was the most alarming because the malware was active. “As soon as we powered on this particular computer, of its own accord without any instruction from us, it began reaching out across the Internet, attempting to contact a computer unfamiliar to us,” Stratton said in the document filed with the court. The laptop was made by Hedy, a computer manufacturer in Guangzhou, China, according to the court records. The company, reached by phone, declined to answer questions. Stratton and his colleagues also found Nitol to be highly contagious. They inserted a thumb drive into the computer and the virus immediately copied itself onto it. When the drive was inserted into a separate machine, Nitol quickly copied itself on to it.

Microsoft examined thousands of samples of Nitol, which has several variants, and all of them connected to command-and-control servers associated with the 3322.org domain, according to the court records. “In short, 3322.org is a major hub of illegal Internet activity, used by criminals every minute of every day to pump malware and instructions to the computers of innocent people worldwide,” Microsoft said in its lawsuit. Peng, the registered owner of 3322.org, said he has “zero tolerance” for the misuse of domain names and works with Chinese law enforcement whenever there are complaints. Still, he said, his huge customer base makes policing difficult. “Our policy unequivocally opposes the use of any of our domain names for malicious purposes,” Peng said in a private chat via Sina Weibo, a service like Twitter that’s very popular in China. “We currently have 2.85 million domain names and cannot exclude that individual users might be using domain names for malicious purposes.” Peng is the founder and chief executive of Bitcomm, a company he and his wife own. They founded an earlier company, which started 3322.org in 2001. Bitcomm took over the domain in 2007. Past warnings by other online security firms have been ignored by Peng, according to Boscovich. 3322.org accounted for more than 17 percent of the world’s malicious web transactions in 2009, according to Zscaler, a computer security firm in San Jose, Calif. In 2008, Russian security company Kaspersky Lab reported that 40 percent of all malware programs, at one point or another, connected to 3322.org. U.S. District Judge Gerald Bruce Lee, who is presiding in the case, granted a request from Microsoft to begin steering Internet traffic from 3322.org that has been infected by Nitol and other malwares to a special site called a sinkhole. From there, Microsoft can alert affected computer users to update their anti-virus protection and remove Nitol from their machines. Since Lee issued the order, more than 37 million malware connections have been blocked from 3322.org, according to Microsoft. Associated Press researcher Fu Ting in Shanghai contributed to this report.

Large anti-austerity protests held in Spain, Portugal THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MADRID – Tens of thousands of people from all over Spain rallied in the capital Saturday against punishing austerity measures enacted by the government, which is trying to save the country from financial collapse. Large anti-austerity protests also took place in neighboring Portugal. Demonstrators in Lisbon threw tomatoes and fireworks at the Portuguese headquarters of the International Monetary Fund. Two protesters were arrested, but otherwise the rally was peaceful. Spain is stuck in a doubledip recession with unemployment close to 25 percent. The conservative government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has introduced stinging cuts and raised taxes in a bid to reduce the deficit and to reassure investors and officials from the 17-nation eurozone. The marchers in Madrid unfurled banners with slogans such as “Let’s go! They are ruining the country and we have to stop them.” “This government’s policies are causing too much pain,” union chief Ignacio Fernandez Toxo said. “It’s a lie that there isn’t another way to restore the economy.” The situation looks set to get worse in coming weeks. At a meeting of eurozone finance ministers Friday in Cyprus, Spain revealed it would present a new set of economic reforms by the end of the month. It’s a move that raises expectations Spain might soon ask for financial help. The economic reform plan will be unveiled by Sept. 27. It is expected to be the

launch-pad to Spain’s tapping of a new European Central Bank bond-buying plan. Before Saturday’s march began, buses transporting protesters blocked several major roads in the Spanish capital. The main organizers were Social Summit, an association of more than 150 organizations, and the Workers’ Commissions and Gen-

eral Workers trade unions. The Interior Ministry’s regional office said it had expected more than 500,000 people to reach a central Madrid square but later said 65,000 had attended to listen to speeches made by protest leaders. Toxo called for a referendum on the government’s austerity and bailout plans.

Really? Objections Board pondering President Obama’s citizenship h, Kansas. It’s as small as you think. Or at least some of the state’s top leaders are so small-minded that they were willing to make a knuckleheaded mistake that has been tried – and failed – in other states. Even more disappointing, but no less surprising, these officials have once again made Kansas the hind end of a jackass. Redundancy intended. Kansas’ three-member Objections Board, headed by the infamous and immigrant-loving Secretary of State Kris Kobach, plan on Monday to consider whether President Barack Obama should be on the state’s presidential ballot in November because a citizen had requested such an inquiry. This citizen – we call him that even though we haven’t seen his birth certificate – questioned the president’s U.S. citizenship. Gee, where have we heard that before? The board put off a decision last Thursday until Monday, so it could obtain the president’s birth certificate and other documentation. Golly, that’s a first.

A

The citizen, Joe Montgomery of Manhattan, since has withdrawn the request because of what he called “animosity” that accompanied media reports about the issue. But late Friday afternoon the Objections Board announced it would meet Monday despite Montgomery withdrawing his request. It shouldn’t. Instead the board ought to do what it should have done initially: Make a snappy decision by just saying “no” to a ridiculous request. We wonder what Kobach and cohorts – Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer – will discover new about a birth certificate that has been more widely dissected and studied than a medical school cadaver. The board ought to have its collective head examined. Yet, on further reflection the board would do Obama a favor if it omitted his name from the ballot. This state is going red come November, as it has for decades. Romney’s gain is not Obama’s loss. The president wasn’t counting on Kansas’ six Electoral College votes. No harm, no foul. The only foul is the Kansas Objections Board – and that kind of foul is an odor not an action.

Even more disappointing, but no less surprising, these officials have once again made Kansas the hind end of a jackass. Redundancy intended.

training over the last nine months. And I’ve come to realize that a long run tends to go far more leisurely when I am able to block everything else – the pressures of work, the ever-growing list of honey-dos awaiting me – out of my mind. But self-doubt has crept into my thoughts the last few weeks as the race has drawn closer. It seemed so far on the horizon when I committed to this run last New Year’s Day – a resolution of sorts. I even wrote about it in this paper. That made it real – sort of. You see, a goal becomes a promise the minute it is spoken into existence or written for the world to read. Yes, I opened my yapper and locked myself into running a halfmarathon in the calendar year of my 50th year of life. What was I thinking? Heck, I want to make it to 51, I promise. Thirteen miles seems like a daunting number. The thought of running for two hours straight just seems crazy to me. But as my training guide – Half Marathons for Dummies – told me, the hardest part of this race isn’t getting to the finish line, but getting to the starting line. Sounds like a sales pitch – a sound bite. Still, I’ve put in the work. I’m ready for this. More specifically, I’m ready for it to be over. Happily, I won’t be alone. There will be hundreds of others running with me, including Hutchinson News Publisher John Montgomery and fellow sports idiot Brad Hallier. We’ll get through this together. Misery loves company. And I have a secret weapon (don’t tell my wife). While running the other day, I discovered a shiny penny in the middle of my running path. I spied Abe’s profile and reached down for it, tucking it into my left shoe. It has been with me for every workout since. He will be with me on Sunday – just for luck.

Childish behavior, deadly consequences I was not aware of a film insulting to Islam until American embassies were attacked in Libya and Egypt. Thus, Muslim extremists managed, through the expedient of riot and rampage, to bring attention to the very thing they loathe, a thing which, but for their help, would have been little noticed. The irony of that likely goes over their heads like a jet plane. “Innocence of Muslims” is said to have had a budget of $5 million. From the look of it, maybe 40 of those dollars made it to the screen – you’d see better production values in a porn video. Better acting and more natural dialogue, too. Of course, it’s not the quality of the movie that’s causing the problem. Islam forbids depictions of the Prophet Muhammad. “Innocence” not only depicts him, but also shows him as a philanderer, child molester, killer and feckless fop. The actor who plays him seems to be channeling John Ritter, circa “Three’s Company.” So yes, “Innocence of Muslims” is, indeed, an insult to Islam. And to film. And to intelligence. All that said, the greatest offense here is not this crude attempt at provocation. It is, rather, the mobs of Muslims storming the gates of American embassies in Egypt and Libya. In the former, they pulled down an American flag and replaced it with a black Islamist flag. In the latter, they killed four people, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. At this writing, protests are spreading across the region, with outbreaks in Iran, Iraq, Israel,

Leonard Pitts Morocco and Tunisia, among others. Not to trivialize a deadly situation, but in considering these would-be defenders of Islam, one is struck above all else by their childishness. I am thinking of a specific scenario familiar to any parent of two children or more: The kids are in the back seat, and suddenly you hear the dreaded words: “He’s touching me!” It is whined at a pitch of such fevered urgency that if you didn’t know better, you’d swear one child was killing the other. But no, it’s only that child number two has discovered she can, with little effort, drive child number one into spasms of apoplexy. So she keeps doing it till you hear yourself yelling, “Don’t make me turn this car around!” Yes, the second child has gone out of her way to needlessly provoke her sibling. But you are also irked at the sibling for being so easily provoked, for not understanding that if he simply stopped giving his sister the reaction she craves, she’d stop doing the stupid thing. It is that dynamic we see play out repeatedly among Muslim extremists. We saw it in 2005 when riots erupted over a cartoon de-

picting Muhammad. (“He’s touching me!) We saw it in 2011 when riots erupted after a Florida “preacher” burned a Quran. (“He’s looking at me!”) Now we see it in the uproar over this stupid film. (“Don’t make me turn this planet around!”) What’s next? Riots because some provocateur sculpts a face on a cucumber and calls it Muhammad? Murder because some moron draws a stick figure having sex and says it’s Muhammad? There are 7 billion people on this planet and 6 billion of them are not Muslims. Do these geniuses propose to throw a tantrum every time one of those 6 billion goes online to insult Islam? Would you give that many people power and permission to make you crazy? Children, at least, have the excuse of being children when they fail to understand how an overthe-top reaction only ensures further provocation. The hotbloods of Islamic fundamentalism are old enough to know better. They ought to grow up. That must be the message they hear from the rest of the world and, in particular, from their coreligionists. Terrorism, intolerance and these repeated outbursts injure their faith more grievously than some obscure movie ever could. They are angry it disrespects Islam. But they don’t seem to respect Islam all that much themselves. Email Leonard Pitts at lpitts@miamiherald.com.

OPINION

WESTERN FRONT

ON THE RIGHT

‘Weather mod’ flawed The recent article “Weathering a Hurdle,” concerning western Kansas weather modification, portrayed a successful and beneficial program. However, supporters left out a lot of information when interviewing with media outlets. The program’s finances come from the county, but the majority comes from the state. I believe taxpayers should be aware of the state’s spending for the program and how recipients feel about the program. The Western Kansas Weather Modification Program started in 1975 as the “Muddy Roads” project, since around 2,000 people had started questioning the effects and validity of the project. This program, earlier said to be successful, started as 16 counties and is now down to five counties. Sound successful? The reason for the decline didn’t come from concern with funding, but concern with disruption of weather patterns, resulting in some northwest Kansas counties passing a resolution making weather modification within the county illegal. Whether cloud seeding prevents hail is unknown, but citizens and scientists are concerned this possibility costs us precipitation. The program states on the Groundwater Management District No. 1 website: “It is true that by reducing the intensity within the most intense part of the storm core (where hail is found within a severe storm), the rate of precipitation within that core is lowered, but this is exactly what has to be done in order to achieve some degree of successful hail suppression.” For many farmers and ranchers, every storm counts, and precipitation reduction isn’t an option. During a recent budget meeting in Scott County, Walter Geiger was asked if the program could eliminate natural variability, meaning that if a cloud is seeded and it doesn’t hail, does the program know for sure that cloud would have produced hail had it not been seeded? Geiger’s response: no. Natural variability is a huge factor to just leave out or try to modify. To increase support, the program mentions success in other states and countries, but this is irrelevant to the effects in Kansas. Geiger stated in the article: “If this had been a normal season, we would have exceeded our budget by now. We would have used all the supplies we have and bought more.” How is it possible to exceed a budget and continue to buy more? Gov. Sam Brownback line-item-vetoed this out of his budget; however, the state Legislature elected to continue funding the program. This could be even more costly than the $3.2 million spent since 1995 with the increase of silver iodide from $6,800 to $31,000 for six gallons. Another impressive fact not mentioned in “Weathering a Hurdle” was the petition to discontinue the program that got 100 signatures in three days. Currently the petition continues to gain signatures and support, spilling over into neighboring counties. Geiger says he wonders what’s normal anymore. I think the bigger question is: What is natural? The problem is we will never know until the Weather Modification Program stops pumping silver iodide into our clouds. ANDREW WIECHMAN Scott City

Time for school choice in Chicago “There is no right to strike against the public safety by anybody, anywhere, any time.” – Calvin Coolidge, responding to the 1919 Boston police strike

The abandonment WASHINGTON – There are two positions one can take regarding the Iranian nuclear program: (a) it doesn’t matter; we can deter them, or (b) it does matter; we must stop them. In my view, the first position – that we can contain Iran as we did the Soviet Union – is totally wrong, a product of wishful thinking and misread history. But at least it’s internally coherent. What is incoherent is President Obama’s position. He declares the Iranian program intolerable – “I do not have a policy of containment; I have a policy to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon” – yet stands by as Iran rapidly approaches nuclearization. A policy so incoherent, so knowingly and obviously contradictory, is a declaration of weakness and passivity. And this, as Anthony Cordesman, James Phillips and others have argued, can increase the chance of war. It creates, writes Cordesman, “the same conditions that helped trigger World War II – years of negotiations and threats, where the threats failed to be taken seriously until war became all too real.” This has precipitated the current U.S.-Israeli crisis, sharpened by the president’s rebuff of the Israeli prime minister’s request for a meeting during his upcoming U.S. visit. Ominous new developments, no Obama response. Alarm bells going off everywhere, Obama plays deaf. The old arguments, old excuses, old pretensions have become ridiculous: (1) Sanctions. The director of national intelligence testified to Congress at the beginning of the year that they had zero effect in slowing the nuclear program. Now the International Atomic Energy Agency reports (Aug. 30) that the Iranian nuclear program, far from slowing, is actually accelerating. Iran has

Charles Krauthammer doubled the number of high-speed centrifuges at Fordow, the facility outside Qom built into a mountain to make it impregnable to air attack. This week, the IAEA reported Iranian advances in calculating the explosive power of an atomic warhead. It noted once again Iran’s refusal to allow inspection of its weapons testing facility at Parchin, and cited satellite evidence of Iranian attempts to clean up and hide what’s gone on there. The administration’s ritual response is that it has imposed the toughest sanctions ever. So what? They’re a means, not an end. And they’ve had no effect on the nuclear program. (2) Negotiations. The latest, supposedly last-ditch, round of talks in Istanbul, Baghdad, then Moscow has completely collapsed. The West even conceded to Iran the right to enrich – shattering a decade-long consensus and six Security Council resolutions demanding its cessation. Iran’s response? Contemptuous rejection. Why not? The mullahs have strung Obama along for more than three years and still see no credible threat emanating from the one country that could disarm them. (3) Diplomatic isolation. The administration boasts that Iran is becoming increasingly isolated. Really? Just two weeks ago, 120 nations showed up in Tehran for a meeting of the Non-Aligned Movement – against U.S. entreaties not to attend. Even the U.N. secretary-general attended – after the administra-

tion implored him not to. Which shows you what American entreaties are worth today. And the farcical nature of Iran’s alleged isolation. The Obama policy is in shambles, which is why Cordesman argues that the only way to prevent a nuclear Iran without war is to establish a credible military threat to make Iran recalculate and reconsider. That means U.S. red lines: deadlines beyond which Washington will not allow itself to be strung, as well as benchmark actions that would trigger a response, such as the further hardening of Iran’s nuclear facilities to the point of invulnerability and, therefore, irreversibility. Which made all the more shocking Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s dismissal last Sunday of the very notion of any U.S. red lines. No deadlines. No bright-line action beyond which Iran must not go. The sleeping giant continues to slumber. And to wait. As the administration likes to put it, “for Iran to live up to its international obligations.” This is beyond feckless. The Obama policy is a double game: a rhetorical commitment to stopping Iran, yet real-life actions that everyone understands will allow Iran to go nuclear. Yet at the same time that it does nothing, the administration warns Israel sternly, repeatedly, publicly, even threateningly not to strike the Iranian nuclear program. With zero prospect of his policy succeeding, Obama insists on Israeli inaction, even as Iran races to close the window of opportunity for any successful attack. Not since its birth six decades ago has Israel been so cast adrift by its closest ally. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@charleskrauthammer.com.

This oft-quoted line from the then-governor of Massachusetts might be updated to include “the public interest,” as well as public safety. There are few matters of public interest greater than educating the next generation. Chicago public school teachers who went on strike Monday have struck against the public interest, placing self-interest in difficult economic times ahead of children. At a time of high unemployment, the teachers and the Chicago Teachers Union want a pay increase and better medical coverage, as well as provisions that include a hire-back policy for laid-off teachers and one that makes it more difficult to dismiss underperforming teachers. But there is a way around the current impasse that doesn’t involve giving in to the union. It’s school choice. Competition would allow parents to send their children to schools that make them the priority. A June Gallup Poll found that “Americans’ confidence in public schools is down five percentage points from last year, with 29 percent expressing ‘a great deal’ or ‘quite a lot’ of confidence in them.” Gallup notes “That establishes a new low in public school confidence from the 33 percent measured in Gallup’s 2007 and 2008 Confidence in Institution polls.” In 1973, the high was 58 percent. The public school system is a virtual state monopoly inundated by many dictates from Washington and has been unable to consistently produce nearly enough well-rounded graduates capable of supporting themselves or contributing to the nation. Yet public school students, especially the poor and minorities, remain locked in failed schools so that Democratic politicians can seemingly reap the political benefits – and contributions – from teachers unions. Politicians regularly campaign for more spending on education. In Maryland, proponents of an expansion of casino gambling are betting on the success of the familiar appeal that it will provide more money for public schools. But the state, like most of the nation, is spending record amounts on public schools. If money and educational achievement were linked, we’d have a surplus of national merit scholars. According to World Magazine, 10 states and the District of Columbia now offer a variety of school voucher options. In his 2010 fiscal year budget, President Obama attempted to end the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, which grants vouchers to low-income students so they can attend private schools, but after an outcry from parents and stinging editorials in Washington’s newspapers, he let the program proceed, at least until children already in the program had a chance to graduate. “The president doesn’t believe that vouchers are a long-term answer to our educational problems and the challenges that face our public school system...,” White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs offered in 2009. Sen. Joe Lieberman and Speaker John Boehner disagreed, fought for school choice and succeeded in reaching an agreement with the president to fully implement the D.C. voucher program. “For eight years, this scholarship program has empowered low-income parents to choose the best learning environment for their children,” Boehner said in June. “Thousands of families have taken advantage of this scholarship program to give their children an opportunity to succeed in life, and there’s strong evidence that it’s both effective and cost-effective.” This is a political advantage for Republicans as many AfricanAmerican and Hispanic families are supportive of school choice. Most of these are Democratic voters, but nothing appeals to a parent more than safeguarding their children’s future. Mitt Romney and Republicans running for Congress should take note of the Chicago teachers strike and claim school choice as their own. Email Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com.

Rising gasoline prices crimp Americans’ spending BY CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer

WASHINGTON — Higher gas prices are crimping consumer spending and slowing the already-weak U.S. economy. And they could get worse in the coming months. The Federal Reserve this week took steps to boost economic growth. But those stimulus measures are also pushing oil prices up. If gas prices follow, consumers will have less money to spend elsewhere. The impact of the Fed’s actions “is likely to weigh on the value of the U.S. dollar and lift commodity prices,” said Joseph Carson, U.S. economist at AllianceBernstein. “We would not be surprised if (it) fueled more inflation in coming months, squeezing the real income of U.S. workers.” Americans are already feeling pinched by high unemployment, slow wage growth and higher gas prices. Consumers increased their spending at retail businesses by 0.9 percent in August, the Commerce Department reported Friday. But that was largely because they paid more for gas. Excluding the impact of gas prices and a sizeable increase in auto sales, retail sales rose just 0.1 percent. Perhaps more telling is where Americans spent less. Consumers cut back on clothing, electronics and at general merchandise outlets – discretionary purchases

that typically signal confidence in the economy. Gas prices have risen more than 50 cents per gallon in the past two months. The national average was $3.87 a gallon on Friday. Most of the increase took place in August, which drove the biggest one-month increase in overall consumer prices in three years, the Labor Department said Friday in a separate report. “Consumers were not willing to spend much at the mall since they are feeling the pump price pinch,” said Chris Christopher, an economist at IHS Global Insight. Weaker retail sales will likely weigh on growth in the July-September quarter. Economists at Bank of America Merrill Lynch slashed their third-quarter growth forecast to an annual rate of only 1.1 percent, down from 1.5 percent. That’s not nearly fast enough to spur more hiring, which has languished since February. The Fed is hoping to kickstart growth with a series of bold steps announced Thursday that could make borrowing cheaper for years. It plans to spend $40 billion a month to buy mortgage bonds to make home buying more affordable. It also pledged to keep shortterm interest rates near zero through at least mid-2015. And Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said the Fed will continue its efforts – and intensify them if necessary – until the job market im-

proves “substantially.” The announcement ignited a two-day stock market rally that sent the Dow Jones industrial average to its highest level since December 2007, the first month of the Great Recession. But the Fed’s actions also helped move oil prices briefly above $100 a barrel Friday for the first time since May. They fell back slightly, but were still up 74 cents to $99.04 a barrel in mid-afternoon trading. Carson noted that the Fed’s previous rounds of bond-buying pushed up commodity prices and fueled greater inflation. That weakened the ability of U.S. consumers to spend and likely slowed growth, he said. He expects the same thing to happen again. The Fed’s moves can push up oil prices in several ways. The Fed creates new money to pay for its mortgage bond purchases. That increases the amount of dollars in circulation and can lower their value. Oil is priced in dollars, so the price tends to rise when the dollar falls. That’s because it costs more for overseas investors to purchase dollars to buy oil. Lower interest rates also push investors out of safer assets, such as bonds, and into riskier investments, such as oil, in hopes of a greater return. And if the Fed’s moves accelerate growth, that would increase demand for oil and gas and also raise their prices. Higher gas prices are eat-

Official says there’s no majority for 3rd Greek bailout THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BERLIN – Germany’s parliament is unlikely to approve a third financial rescue package for Greece, a senior lawmaker in Chancellor Angela Merkel’s governing coalition said Saturday. The comments by Rainer Bruederle, the parliamentary leader of the Free Democrats party, indicate growing pessimism among German lawmakers at Greece’s ability to satisfy creditors’ demands for economic reform. Bruederle told rbb-Inforadio in an interview that it appeared the troika of auditors from the European Union, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund wasn’t getting satisfactory answers from the Greek government on its promised reforms.

Greece’s creditors are demanding that the conservative-led government slashes a further €11.5 billion ($14.8 billion) in budget costs over the

next two years, requiring further painful wage and pension cuts that the country’s three-month-old coalition had promised to avoid.

ing up a bigger share of Americans’ incomes than in previous years. Spending at the pump accounts for 8.2 percent of the typical family’s household income, according to Fred Rozell of the Oil Price Information Service. That’s just below last year’s 8.3 percent. Those represent the biggest slice of household income spent on gas since 1981. The typical household spends about $342 per month on gasoline. Before gasoline prices began rising in 2004, households spent less than $200 per month, Rozell said, under 5 percent of median income. Average gas prices are higher this year than last year. But Americans are using less by driving more fuelefficient cars and driving less. Meanwhile, average wages, adjusted for inflation, have been flat for the past year, the Labor Department said Friday. That adds to the

squeeze on consumers. One silver lining is that weakness should eventually push prices back down, economists note. That’s because people cut back on oil and gas consumption when prices rise. “Unless the economic data

rapidly improve, the gains in oil ... prices are unlikely to be sustained,” Julian Jessop, an analyst Capital Economics, said. AP Energy Writer Jonathan Fahey contributed to this report from New York.

Missed chances cost KU in loss to TCU ■ ’Hawks fall 20-6 despite

valiant effort by defense; coach Weis still impressed. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAWRENCE – Kansas had plenty of chances to make a statement against a highprofile team. The defense did its part to keep things close, something that rarely happened a year ago, but a crippling lack of offensive production allowed No. 16 TCU to overcome four turnovers and a missed field goal in a 20-6 victory in its Big 12 debut on Saturday.

INSIDE More scores from around the Big 12 and Top 25, D6 The Jayhawks kept the game within two possessions, but Dayne Crist was intercepted once and fumbled while heading into the end zone in the fourth quarter, along with missing several third-down throws that prevented them from capitalizing on the TCU turnovers. “It is real frustrating because the defense played very well today, but the offense came out in the second half and didn’t do well,” said

running back Tony Pierson, who had 99 yards receiving and another 35 on the ground. “The defense carried us this game.” Even on the final drive, with the game almost certainly out of reach, Kansas coach Charlie Weis called a timeout. It was not for a desperate last play, but for a teaching moment. He called in the whole team and told them he was impressed. “Everyone came in here thinking you were going to get the crap kicked out of

MANHATTAN – They vowed not to overlook North Texas, but the Kansas State Wildcats apparently couldn’t resist casting an eye south toward Norman, Okla. The No. 15-ranked Wildcats stuttered and sputtered for more than a half, but finally got their offense rolling in the third quarter Saturday night and wore down North Texas, 35-21, to set up a showdown with No. 5 Oklahoma next week.

K-State (3-0), which trailed for the first time this season in the first quarter, needed a missed North Texas extra point midway through the third period to maintain its halftime advantage before asserting its will. After the Mean Green (12), trailing 14-7 at intermission, took the second-half kickoff and marched 88 yards in 14 plays with Antoinne Jimmerson scoring from the 1. The drive took 7 minutes, 57 seconds, but Zach Olen’s PAT kick sailed wide right. That’s when the Wildcats took control, answering with a 77-yard drive that

HCC thumps Dodge ■ Blue Dragons take a victory

after a solid showing in 2nd half. BY BRAD HALLIER The Hutchinson News bhallier@hutchnews.com

A problem surfaced for the 14thranked Hutchinson Community College football team Saturday at Gowans Stadium. It was a problem few could have expected to come against winless Dodge City. The offense struggled to score in the first half. By halftime, the offense that scores enough points to make college basketball teams envious managed one touchdown and had two turnovers. Concerned? Not at all. The Blue Dragons looked like their normal selves in a 30-point second half as

they pulled away and beat Dodge City 45-10. Hutchinson (3-1, 3-0 Jayhawk Conference) had its first turnovers of the season in the first quarter, which ended with Dodge City up 3-0 after Austin Avelar kicked a 27yard field goal. That was the first time this season the Blue Dragons didn’t score in a quarter. Running back Terrell Lane, who left the game in the fourth quarter with an injury, scored on a 1-yard run 62 seconds into the quarter, but that was the only touchdown the Hutchinson offense had in the first half. “It’s just that we were dropping balls and not executing,” wide receiver Jatavius Stewart said. “Coach got after us at halftime and fired us up. We weren’t patient in the first half. We were rushing things in the first half. It

was nothing they were doing scheme wise. The first half, everything was open.” Hutchinson added a 25-yard field goal from Michael Mesh, and it seemed the Blue Dragons were going to lead just 9-3 at halftime. But with less than 30 seconds left and Dodge City at the Hutchinson 38yard line, Hutchinson’s Brock Long hit running back Jace Banner, and the ball came out. Terrell Hannah collected the ball at the 29 and ran untouched into the end zone for a 15-3 Hutchinson lead at halftime. That score helped, but the Blue Dragon offense still looked iffy, unlike against Coffeyville when it had 616 yards or Garden City when it had a school-record 716 yards. “Dodge City played hard on defense,” HCC coach Rion Rhoades

Bills, Chiefs seek to rebound from their season-opening duds BY JOHN WAWROW AP Sports Writer

Football greats enjoyed perks even before Super Bowl Paul Hornung was a football hero at a time when great athletes were granted no favors by the U.S. government when it came to their military responsibilities. Everyone was expected to serve. And everyone did – no matter the star power. Willie Mays served in the U.S. Army from 1952-54. Ted Williams did two separate tours as a U.S. Marine fighter pilot in the 1950s and Hornung was redrafted into the army in 1961 – in the height of the Cold War. “I got called back because

ed to a lot of political posturing, but it serves as Hornung’s lone tie to the Sunflower State. Upon being redrafted, he was stationed at Fort Riley. He would spend the week tending to his military obligations and then fly to out on Saturdays to meet up with the Green Bay Packers. The army accommodated him to allow Hornung to play on Sundays because pro football – even a decade before the first Super Bowl – was a big deal to the American public.

But there were some exceptions to that rule. One of them was Hornung’s commanding officer. It was standard operating procedure at that time that soldiers with a last name beginning with the letters A through I took the first two weeks of December for Christmas vacation. Letters J through Z took their holiday leave in the final two weeks of December. Hornung went through the chain of command –

Blown opportunities give Sterling a loss BY LUCAS FAHRER The Hutchinson News lfahrer@hutchnews.com

STERLING – Dave Dallas wouldn’t have called Saturday night’s match-up against Sterling a trap game necessarily. The Kansas Wesleyan coach could see where it had the makings of it, what, with his Coyotes riding high after upsetting then-No. 11 Ottawa 31-28 the week before in Salina. And with his team on the verge of cracking the NAIA Top 25, Dallas could see how some would think they might overlook the winless Warriors. But he made sure his team didn’t and they survived a scare, winning 14-11 thanks to cornerback Ty Holmes’ win-preserving pick late in the fourth quarter at Sterling’s Smisor Stadium. “I think our guys knew (Sterling was) going to come out and play hard and respected them,” said Dallas, whose team improved to 2-1 with the victory. The Coyotes’ took a 14-3 lead with 12:42 left in the game when running back Brett Giesen, who had been bottled up all game, ended his frustrations with a six-yard

touchdown carry. Sterling (0-3) found its answer six minutes later when quarterback John Cardona engineered a fourplay, 73-yard drive. Running back Dentton Hudspeth ignited the drive with a 14-yard carry before Cardona did the rest of the work, albeit with a little help from 6-foot-5 wide out Jordan Coleman. After his own four-yard carry, Sterling’s sophomore found Coleman deep down the middle of the field for a 41-yard completion and then hit him again on a 14-yard touchdown pass on the next play. Tight end Matt Schmidt gave Cardona his third-straight completion for a two-point conversion that trimmed the Coyotes’ lead to 14-11 with 6:28 to play. Wesleyan fed 6-foot, 230-pound bruiser Jalil Turner the ball to get a few key first downs on the following drive but Sterling’s defense stopped them – after spending its final two time outs in the process – by dropping Giesen for a two-yard loss on a third-and-six at their own 47. The ensuing punt placed the Sterling offense at its own 23. Cardona found Schmidt for a 20-yard completion to move the Warriors to their own 43 but his next pass landed in

the wrong hands. Coleman sprinted upfield on a go-route down the right sideline but didn’t look back when Cardona expected him to cut. Holmes read the read, reacted and made a diving interception to seal the win for Wesleyan. “He was on a go route. He threw it to (Coleman) but (he) didn’t see the ball so he kept running,” Holmes said. “I was looking at the quarterback, so I made a play on the ball.” It was the nail in the coffin for Sterling, but they’d had their opportunities. A bevy of drops by the receiving corps left Cardona with just 19 completions and 186 yards on 38 attempts while the Warriors’ defense also had several interceptions slip through their fingers. The score remained the same from halftime until the start of the fourth quarter despite three opportunities to change it. Sterling kicker Doug Dunn’s 37-yard field goal was blocked midway through the quarter but the Warrior defense returned the favor on the Coyotes’ following possession. A swarm up the middle batted down Terry Stecker’s 43-yard try and defensive back Chris Lehmann scooped the ball up and returned it to Wesleyan’s 15.

But the Warrior offense came up empty when Dunn missed wide left on a 32-yard field goal attempt. Amid the flurry of third-quarter action, Dallas said his team remained poised. “We just kind of stayed the course and we played very good defense and made some stops when we had to,” Dallas said. Neither team asserted itself in the first half, though opportunities were many. Kansas Wesleyan found the scoreboard first when quarterback Trey Dallas found Zach McLain open on a seam down the left hashes and the 510 receiver hauled it in in the end zone from 26 yards out with 9:16 left in the second quarter. Sterling could only muster a 30yard field goal with 51 ticks left in the first half. Wesleyan’s Giesen led all rushers with 29 carries for 82 yards while Sterling’s Coleman was the top passcatcher with six grabs for 87 yards. Cardona picked up a team-high 59 yards on the ground to go with his 186 through the air. Coyote quarterback Trey Dallas, who was questionable entering the game with bruised kidneys, was an efficient 21-of-30 for 179 yards.

Dragons ● From Page D1 said. “I think we’re going to feel good about the offense because they gave us a bunch of different looks tonight.” The offense was back to its highlights, yards, touchdowns and records in the second half. Stewart finished with a school-record 12 catches for 136 yards and a touchdown. Lane had his fourth straight game of at least 100 yards as he finished with 123. Quarterback Luke Barnes had his third game of at least 300 passing yards as he completed 32 of 54 passes for 350 yards and four touchdowns. “We’ve got a dynamic offense,” Barnes said. “We’re showing that week after week. It’s doesn’t surprise me because of the athletes we have on offense.” Barnes engineered a touchdown drive to start the second half, finding AJ Johnson in the back of the end zone for a 10-yard strike.

Waymon James added 99 yards rushing as the Horned Frogs (2-0, 1-0) pushed the nation’s longest winning streak to 10 games.

His commanding officer turned down his request. Discouraged, Hornung called coach Vince Lombardi, who yelled for a little while before taking matters into his own hands. He called President John F. Kennedy and told him of the situation. A short time later, a certain commanding officer at Fort Riley got a phone call – from Kennedy himself. Hornung’s vacation schedule immediately changed. “I had a real good day,” said Hornung, who rushed for a touchdown and 87

but that was about all Dodge City managed against the Blue Dragons much-ma-

they were trying to score. The Jayhawks (1-2, 0-1) have forced 12 turnovers already this season. The fumbles were the only glaring blemishes in TCU’s workmanlike win, though. The offense was coldly efficient, the defense managed to hold Kansas out of the end zone, and the result was a 25th consecutive conference victory going back to its membership in the Mountain West. “We’re just glad to get our first Big 12 win,” said TCU coach Gary Patterson, who grew up in Rozel and played for Kansas State before beginning his highly successful coaching career. Not that beating up on college football’s big boys is anything new. TCU had won 16 of its past 20 games against schools from automatic BCS-qualifying conferences, in-

yards, caught three passes for another 47 yards, kicked two field goals and converted on four point-after-touchdown kicks in the Packers’ 37-0 victory over the Giants. “I owe it all to Coach Lombardi and to the president for making that call for me.” OK, so maybe football heroes did get some perks back then, too. Maybe some strings were easily pulled on their behalf. But at least they served their time. At the time he was in the military, he might have been the most famous football player on the planet. He had won a Heisman Trophy in 1956 by doing everything – kicking, playing quarterback and safety – for a Notre Dame team that won just two games. To this day, he is the only Heisman Trophy winner from a losing team. “I don’t think it could happen today,” said the 77-year-

ligned defense. After giving up 1,161 yards the last two games, the Blue

cluding a stretch of five straight against Big 12 schools. Among the victims have been Oklahoma, Texas Tech and Iowa State – all schools that they’ll be facing in coming weeks. The Horned Frogs effortlessly marched inside the Kansas 10 on their opening possession, only for a fumbled snap to go scooting past Pachall. The Jayhawks recovered it and drove the other way, and Ron Doherty’s field goal with 8:45 left in the first quarter gave them a 3-0 lead. TCU marched right down field again, gaining big yardage with each play, but this time Pachall fumbled while attempting a pass and Kansas jumped on the ball. Turns out the Jayhawks are good at giving away possessions, too. Crist threw an interception on

old who now resides in Louisville. “I was lucky enough to win a Heisman because I could do so many things.” And at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, he was a lot bigger than most of his contemporaries. That allowed him to dominate. And he continued to thrive in the NFL. Of course, in Green Bay, he was surrounded by a future Hall of Fame players on both sides of the football. The list is vast: Jim Taylor, Bart Starr, Forrest Gregg, Ray Nitschke, Herb Adderley, Willie Davis and Jim Ringo. “We established being great,” he said. “No team had players like we had. No team had as many Hall of Famers. It was an amazing group of players.” And with Lombardi pulling the strings, the Packers won championships. They lost in the 1960 title game before winning in 1961.

Dragons held Dodge City’s offense – which ran more than it passed for the first time this season – to 246 yards, including just 47 on the ground. “We had the mindset that we would get a shutout,” defensive lineman Ben Bradley said. “During defensive meetings this week, we talked about getting a shutout. We’ve been playing good as individuals, but we had to play good as a team. People have been saying our defense isn’t that good, but we had to show them how good we are.” Reed’s score made it 21-10, and the Blue Dragons came back with Barnes freezing the Dodge City defense with a pump-fake reminiscent of former HCC basketball star Darius Johnson-Odom, and then finding Miguel Johns wide open for a 39-yard touchdown. Barnes added touchdown passes to Johnson and Stewart, and Mesh also booted a 38-yard field goal, his seventh field goal in as many attempts.

their first play from scrimmage, and Pachall pushed his streak to 13 straight completions to start the season when he found Carter for an 8yard touchdown pass. Pachall’s streak ended at 14 straight on the Horned Frogs’ next drive. Doherty and his TCU counterpart, Jaden Oberkrom, atoned for missed field goals earlier in the second quarter by each making good before halftime. That left TCU clinging to a 10-6 lead. Things finally unraveled for Kansas in the third quarter. Oberkrom added a 27-yard field goal later in the third quarter, and the Horned Frogs dominated the fourth quarter – despite two more fumbles costing them points – to wrap up the victory.

They would win five in a seven-year span – the last two ushering in the Super Bowl Era. A neck injury forced Hornung to retire in 1967. He was given clearance to play, but sought a second opinion. The second doctor suggested he stop playing, which he did, knowing that walking away from the game on his own terms was far better than the alternative. His injury was similar to the one that forced Peyton Manning to miss all of last season. And Hornung said he called Archie Manning, Peyton’s father, to pass on his knowledge of cervical spine injuries. “I just wanted him to know that this was nothing to mess around with,” said Hornung, who added that the head injury issues facing the league today are something that should never be downplayed. “It’s a problem. There is no

question about it. Your head is so important. You get injured so easily upstairs. They have never committed to producing a helmet that’s worth a (darn).” It had put a damper on a game that he still enjoys watching. He was inside Lambeau Field on opening day to see the Packers lose to the 49ers. He marvels at the size and speed of the players today. “I watch it all the time,” he said. “The kids get better every year. They get bigger and stronger. We never had a quarterback like Cam Newton. He is so big and strong. He is amazing. We had great football players. There is no one is better than Gayle Sayers or Jim Brown.” What about Paul Hornung? How would he measure up in today’s game? “They’d find a place for me to play, I think,” he said. He’s probably right.

Hutchinson edges No. 19 Johnson Co. BY THE NEWS STAFF

Danielle Sheehy scored two goals, Jamie Smith headed in a goal from a corner kick, and the top-ranked Hutchinson Community College soccer team edged No. 19 Johnson County 3-2 on Saturday at the USD 308 Complex. The Blue Dragons (7-0) gave up their first two goals of the season and trailed for the first time the season. After Sheehy scored in the second minute from a Courtney Gahagan assist, Johnson County (5-3) answered. Megan Wilcox tied the game in the eighth minute, and Kelsey Wakefield gave the Cavaliers a 2-1 lead in the 22nd minute. Not bothered by this development, the Blue Dragons took just seven minutes to respond, as Smith slammed in a goal from a Melissa Hetherington corner kick. Seventy seconds later, Sheehy rocketed a shot into the goal, giving Hutchinson the lead for good. That was Sheehy’s 21st goal of the season, an average of three per game. Goalkeeper Eunice Figueroa made five saves, including a couple outstanding stops, helping Hutch preserve the win. Hutchinson outshot Johnson County 12-7. The Blue Dragons next play Tuesday at Garden City.

K-State ● From Page D1 culminated in a 21-yard Collin Klein-to-Tramaine Thompson completion in the left side of the end zone. Thompson originally was ruled out of bounds, but the replay overturned the decision. K-State went the distance again on its next possession, covering 75 yards in six plays, including a 27-yard Klein run, to make it 28-13 on John Hubert’s 6-yard run. They padded the lead again with 6:44 left when Klein scored on a 1-yard sneak to cap a 65-yard drive. North Texas’ Brelan Chancellor scored late on a 19-yard pass from Derek Thompson to cut the final margin. K-State, which had negative yardage in the first quarter, finished with 373 yards total offense to 353 for North Texas. Klein was 15 for 20 passing for 230 yards and two touchdowns to Thompson, plus ran for 85 yards on 11 carries. The Wildcats had 143 yards rushing. North Texas’ Thompson completed 25 of 28 passes for 208 yards, including nine for 86 to Ivan Delgado. The Mean Green had 145 yards rushing led by Antoinne Jimmerson with 68 on eight carries. K-State’s offense sputtered the entire first quarter, finishing with minus-1 yard, but the Wildcats came out of the period tied at 7-7, thanks to Tyler Lockett’s 96-yard kickoff return. After the Wildcats went three-and-out on their first two possessions, North Texas took over on a short punt and marched 55 yards in 11 plays with wide receiver Chancellor scoring from the 6 on a reverse to the right side. The lead didn’t last long as Lockett received the ensuing kickoff at his 4-yard line, broke toward the left side and outran the Mean Green to the end zone for the third touchdown return of his young career. K-State took its first lead with 2:24 left in the half on Klein’s 38-yard pass down the middle to Tramaine Thompson, who stretched for the ball and ran it in. The scoring drive covered 72 yards in six plays after the Wildcats’ Vai Lutui blocked a 45-yard North Texas field goal attempt. K-State put together its best drive of the half early in the second quarter, starting on its 8-yard line and picking up a first down at the North Texas 5, when Hubert lost a fumble. North Texas outgained K-State in the half, 174 yards to 142, with Thompson completing 12 of 14 passes for 80 yards. Jimmerson had 56 of the Mean Green’s 94 rushing yards, including a 45-yard run.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Ernesto Frieri needed just four pitches to ruin a spectacular start by Zack Greinke, giving up two home runs in the ninth inning as the Kansas City Royals rallied to hand the playoff-contending Los Angeles Angels a stunning 3-2 loss on Saturday night. Frieri (3-1) replaced Greinke with one out in the ninth after Alex Gordon singled. Billy Butler homered to center on Frieri’s first pitch to tie the score. Three pitches later, Salvador Perez homered off the left-field pole for his first career walkoff homer. The Angels entered the day 2½ games back of Baltimore and New York for the second wild-card spot in the AL Greinke gave up just five singles, walked two and struck out three in 8 1-3 innings. He has allowed seven runs and 24 hits in 37 innings for a 1.70 ERA in his past five starts. Kendrys Morales, who homered for the second straight game, hit an 0-1 pitch from Jeremy Guthrie to right leading off the Angels’ fifth for the first run. Guthrie, who was 4-0 with a 1.70 ERA in his previous seven starts, faced the minimum number of batters the first four innings. He gave up a fourth inning leadoff single to Mike Trout, but picked him off first. Guthrie left after eight innings, allowing two runs on five hits. Kelvin Herrera (3-3) replaced Guthrie and picked up the win with a scoreless ninth. Greinke, who was acquired from Milwaukee in a trade on July 27 trade and won the 2009 American League Cy Young Award while with Kansas City, pitched out of a first inning jam.

One day after Yankees ace CC Sabathia lost his third straight decision, Nova outpitched James Shields and gave New York’s rotation a nice boost. Red Sox 3, Blue Jays 2 – Pedro Ciriaco drove in the tiebreaking run with a twoout double in the ninth inning, Cody Ross hit a solo shot and the Boston Red Sox won their second straight, beating the Toronto Blue Jays.

After stranding runners at third base three times in the previous five innings, the Red Sox finally broke through in the ninth. Jarrod Saltalamacchia led off with a double against Steve Delabar (4-2), Ryan Lavarnway struck out and Saltalamacchia moved to third on Mike Aviles’ flyball. Ciriaco followed with a double to left. Craig Breslow (1-0 AL, 3-0) worked one inning for the win and Andrew Bailey finished for his fourth save in five chances. White Sox 5, Twins 3 – Francisco Liriano took a nohitter into the seventh inning, Paul Konerko homered and drove in three runs, and the Chicago White Sox stayed on top of the AL Central with a victory over the Minnesota Twins. Liriano (6-11) was tremendous against his former team, allowing only a two-out homer in the seventh to Trevor Plouffe. He walked two, hit a batter and struck out nine in seven innings. Acquired from the Twins on July 28, the victory was Liriano’s third for the White Sox and his first against Minnesota. Liriano’s bid for the second no-hitter of his career ended after hitting Justin Morneau with a pitch with two outs in the seventh. Plouffe then homered to left-center on Liriano’s 96th pitch of the game. Tigers 5, Indians 3 – Anibal Sanchez took a no-hitter into the seventh inning as Detroit beat the Cleveland Indians despite the Tigers having a run taken off the scoreboard. Carlos Santana ruined Sanchez’s no-hit bid with a two-out triple in the seventh, but Cleveland was officially eliminated from the playoffs after falling to 16-45 since the All-Star break. Starter Justin Masterson (11-14) took the loss. Sanchez (3-5) struck out seven over 6 2-3 innings as Detroit stayed one game behind the first place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central with its fourth straight win. After Cleveland rallied, Jose Valverde, the fourth Tigers pitcher, worked the ninth for his 31st save in 35 chances.

Hit batter helps Braves slip by Nats THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA – Pinch-runner Jeff Baker scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning when reliever Ryan Mattheus hit Andrelton Simmons’ uniform with a bases-loaded pitch that helped the Atlanta Braves beat the Washington Nationals 5-4 on Saturday. Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman homered for the Braves, who have won the first two games in the series and nine of 13. Atlanta moved within 6½ games of first-place Washington in the NL East. The Braves began the game with a seven-game lead over third-place Los Angeles in the NL wild-card race. Braves closer Craig Kimbrel earned his 36th save in 39 ties after striking out the side. Eric O’Flaherty (3-0) faced the minimum in the eighth for Atlanta, extending his scoreless innings streak to 19 1-3 innings, a span of 22 games. Mattheus (5-2) allowed one hit, one walk, two walks and no strikeouts. Marlins 6, Reds 4 – Carlos Lee homered and drove in three runs and the Miami Marlins beat the Cincinnati Reds. Mark Buehrle (13-12) allowed four runs on seven

hits over 7 2-3 innings to improve to 4-1 in his last six starts. Jose Reyes had three hits and also drove in a run for Miami. Johnny Cueto (17-9) suffered his third straight loss and failed to last five innings for the second straight start. Cueto gave up six runs on nine hits in 4 1-3 innings, and hasn’t won since August 28 at Arizona. Ryan Ludwick homered for the Reds. Pirates 7, Cubs 6 – Andrew McCutchen homered and reached base four times, and the Pittsburgh Pirates held off a late rally to snap a seven-game losing streak with a win over the Chicago Cubs. Wandy Rodriguez (11-13) held Chicago to three runs – one earned – in helping the Pirates stop their free-fall in the NL playoff race. Pittsburgh had lost 17 of 22, yet was just three games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild-card slot entering the day. Rodriguez is 3-0 with a 1.40 ERA over his last four starts after struggling initially upon being acquired midseason from Houston. McCutchen launched Jason Berkin’s pitch off the rear fence behind the leftfield bleachers leading off the third, his 28th round-tripper of the season. He also singled

and walked twice, improving to .394 in 27 career games at Wrigley Field. Astros 5, Phillies 0 – Dallas Keuchel pitched five-hit ball into the sixth inning and Houston and avoided its 100th loss of the season. The Phillies were slowed in their surge for an NL playoff spot for the second time in three games by the worst team in the big leagues. Philadelphia entered the day three games behind St. Louis for the final wild-card spot. The Carindals played the Dodgers later Saturday. Kyle Kendrick Kendrick (9-11) struggled early and was done after just five innings, his shortest outing in more than a month. He gave up four runs on seven hits, including a two-run homer to Justin Maxwell. Giants 3, Diamondbacks 2 – Buster Posey had a tworun home run in the fifth to help the San Francisco Giants beat the Arizona Diamondbacks. Barry Zito scattered six hits and one run over 6 2-3 innings for the Giants, who have won four straight and 22 of their past 32. Zito (12-8) walked one and struck out four. Sergio Romo pitched the final 1 1-3 for his 11th save. Justin Upton hit his 14th home run for the Diamond-

backs, who have scored four runs or fewer in 12 straight home games to match a franchise record. Arizona starter Wade Miley (15-10) allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk over seven innings. Posey broke a 1-all tie in the fifth with a two-out home run two rows deep into the right-field stands. The AllStar catcher is hitting .390 in 55 games since the All-Star break with 12 homers and 49 RBIs. Brewers 9, Mets 6 – Rickie Weeks hit a two-run homer during a five-run fourth inning to lift the Milwaukee Brewers over the New York Mets. Trailing 4-1 in the fourth the Brewers rallied for five runs to win for the 19th time in 25 games and stay in the hunt for a wild card. The Mets lost for the ninth time in 11 games. Weeks’ homer capped the inning and was his 20th of the season. He also had a double, scored two runs and drove in three. Reliever Brandon Kintzler (2-0) pitched a scoreless fifth to get credit for the victory. Jenry Mejia (0-1) pitched three innings in his first major-league start exactly two years after undergoing ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction surgery.

Bryans win; US trims Spain’s Davis Cup lead BY PAUL LOGOTHETIS AP Sports Writer

GIJON, Spain – Mike and Bob Bryan won the doubles match for the United States to trim Spain’s lead in the Davis Cup semifinal to 2-1 on Saturday. The brothers were stretched by Marcel Granollers and Marc Lopez in a 6-3, 3-6, 7-5, 7-5 victory in which Granollers injured his left calf during the second set. The Bryans kept the Americans in the series, winning before a near capacity crowd of 15,000, and a chance to reach the Davis Cup final in November. John Isner will play David Ferrer in reverse singles on Sunday. Defending champion Spain is aiming for a fourth trip to the final in five years. Should Isner beat the fifth-ranked Ferrer, Sam Querrey and Nicolas Almagro would play the de-

Chiefs ● From Page D1 Atlanta that’s left Chiefs players in a testy mood. “We’ve got some guys who want to get back out there and get that taste out of their mouths,” said safety Kendrick Lewis. Though Lewis’ status is uncertain because of a shoulder injury, the Chiefs will at least get an immediate boost with the return of Tamba Hali. The pass-rushing Pro Bowl linebacker will make his season debut after serving an NFL-imposed one-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. “Being away, having to watch our team, wasn’t something I liked,” said Hali. “It wasn’t fun screaming at the TV.” At least those on TV weren’t talking back, as the critics did in focusing on Buffalo’s high-priced newcomer, Mario Williams. The defensive end, who signed a six-year, $100 million contract in free agency, is already being panned after he failed to make a dent against the Jets. “I’d probably be angry every day if I actually paid attention to what everybody said,” Williams said. That doesn’t mean he’s not motivated going into this weekend. “By any means necessary,” Williams said. “It’s going to change.” It might be only Week 2, yet there is already a sense of urgency brewing among two non-division rivals meeting for the fifth consecutive season. The Bills have won three of the past four meetings against the Chiefs, including last year when they opened the season with a 41-7 rout at Kansas City. It was a loss that began to expose the Chiefs’ deficiencies and added to what ended up as a growing list of injured players. Tight end Tony Moeaki, safety Eric Berry, running back Jamaal Charles and quarterback Matt Cassel all got hurt in 2011. Berry’s season came to a quick end in the first quarter against Buffalo when he tore a ligament in his left knee after being blocked by receiver Stevie Johnson. Berry has accused Johnson of intending to injure him by targeting his knee. Johnson has denied that allegation, and isn’t sure what to expect when the two players meet Sunday. “However he feels is how-

ciding match. Spain is 37-0 after opening the semifinal with a sweep of the opening singles points. The U.S. has only once recovered from a 0-2 deficit – in 1934 – but its record improves when down 1-2, having done it five times with the last being in 2000. Captain Alex Corretja asked Granollers to quit rather than risk injury, but he played and improved over time. Lopez also had a bandage on his left calf. “At times we thought he was going to quit, but he kept getting the balls and hitting the serves,” Bob Bryan said after the 3-hour, 38-minute match. “That’s probably one of the longest Davis Cup matches we’ve ever played.” Mike Bryan stumbled chasing down a drop shot to miss out on the first match point, but Lopez double-faulted on the second opportunity.

ever he feels,” Johnson said. “Everything that’s been said and everything that happened, it happened. It’s over with.” Johnson and the Bills have many more concerns to contend with after what happened against the Jets. Four turnovers, including three interceptions of Ryan Fitzpatrick, led directly to New York scoring 24 points. Worse still, the Bills lost receiver David Nelson to a season-ending knee injury, while workhorse running back Fred Jackson will miss a month with a sprained right knee. Nelson’s injury depletes an already thinly experienced group of receivers. At running back, C.J. Spiller has shown he’s capable of filling in for Jackson, and did so against the Jets with a career-best 169 yards rushing. Coach Chan Gailey insists the Bills are good enough to overcome the injuries, and should be sharp enough to correct their mistakes. “I keep trying to keep telling everybody that I believe we’re going to be a good football team,” Gailey said. “But time’s the only thing that’ll tell on that, and winning’s the only healer.” In Kansas City, Crennel has concerns about a patchwork defense that faltered against Atlanta. Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan had 299 yards passing and three touchdowns, while scoring another on the ground. He did it against a Chiefs defense missing four regulars, including Hali. “We couldn’t stop anybody on defense, and that’s a problem,” Crennel said. “We have to build on the positives and eliminate the negative things, and we have a short period of time to do that.” The Chiefs produced 493 yards on offense to have the edge in most every statistical category but the score. They were instead undone by three turnovers, including Cassel throwing two interceptions. In Buffalo, Fitzpatrick’s season-ending struggles carried into this year. He’s now 1-9 in his past 10 starts, a stretch in which he’s thrown 13 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. “We’re disappointed,” Fitzpatrick said. “We have to put that behind us and try to learn from some mistakes and move on. But it is interesting that both (teams) had very disappointing games.” On the bright side, at least one should come away a winner Sunday.

OUTDOORS Court overturns hunting penalties ■ Conviction stands for

Texas brothers for allowing illegal shooting of deer. BY ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press

WICHITA – A federal appeals court has overturned the prison sentences of two Texas brothers who ran a hunting camp in Kansas where hunters paid thousands of dollars to illegally shoot deer, sending the case back to district court where the men will be resentenced. The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals said in its decision Thursday that the district court made a mistake in sentencing James and Marlin Butler by basing the value of the wildlife on the full price of a guided hunt rather than the actual value of the animals. The Butlers, of Martinsville, Texas, ran Camp Lone Star near Coldwater, Kan. James Butler owned the camp and was sentenced last year to 41 months in prison and ordered to pay a $25,000 fine

and $25,000 in restitution to the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. Marlin Butler, who worked as a guide, was sentenced to 27 months in prison and ordered to pay a $10,000 fine and $10,000 in restitution. The federal investigation into Camp Lone Star is believed to be one of the largest criminal prosecutions involving the illegal taking of deer. The Butler brothers were convicted under the Lacey Act, a federal law that prohibits interstate transport of any wildlife taken in violation of state regulations. Search warrants were executed in Louisiana, Kansas and Texas. The brothers pleaded guilty to felony charges of conspiracy to violate the Lacey Act and violation of the Lacey Act. James Butler also pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice. The appeals court took issue with U.S. District Court Judge Wesley Brown’s valuation of the animals involved. Brown valued them at $120,000, a figure that resulted in an eight-level enhancement to

the guideline range sentence. Brown also imposed special conditions of supervision on the brothers, which upon release from prison would have prohibited them from hunting, fishing, trapping or accompanying anyone engaging in those activities. The appeals court said the district court must ascertain the actual retail market value of the deer in calculating a new sentence. However, James Butler still will be required to pay $25,000 to Kansas, the appeals court said. The court also upheld a sentencing enhancement on James Butler for being the organizer of a criminal activity, but it struck down the occupational restriction prohibiting him from hunting and similar activities. The appeals court noted that since James Butler worked as the business manager for a commercial deer operation owned by another party in Texas, the district court should have engaged in “necessary fact-

finding” before imposing the special conditions. Once the Butlers were convicted, prosecutors began filing mostly misdemeanor charges against some of the out-of-state hunters accused of illegally killing deer during the guided hunts at the camp. At least 25 people have now been sentenced in connection to activities at the hunting camp. Prosecutors said the Butler brothers charged out-ofstate hunters $3,500 per hunt with archery equipment and $5,000 per hunt with a firearm for guided hunts at Camp Lone Star and some 50,000 nearby acres leased for hunting activities in Kansas. The government alleged that during the guided hunts, the Butlers and others encouraged hunters to take deer illegally by hunting without a valid license. The brothers also are accused of letting hunters illegally spotlight deer during night hunts and use illegal equipment, such as firearms during archery season.

Canoe celebration Birthday on the river for Alaska pair BY SAM FRIEDMAN Fairbanks Daily NewsMiner/Associated Press

FAIRBANKS, Alaska – Not many people would choose to celebrate their 80th birthday on a whitewater canoe trip. But if you know Ron and Lou Davis or their former business, Canoe Alaska, you would not be surprised they chose a five-day trip on the Gulkana River to mark the milestone. The Davises have been running the 47-mile stretch between Paxson Lake and Sourdough Creek since the 1970s. The river is known for scenic views and a mix of flat water and class three or even class four rapids. The Davises estimate they have done it 25 times. Two years ago, the couple decided to do something for other boating friends they always wished someone had done for them. They ran the river in rafts so their friends can run the rapids in empty canoes without worrying about spilling gear. They had so much fun they saw no reason to stop doing the trip this year when they both turned 80. “You get into a new decade and you want to do something for it,” Lou Davis said after returning from this year’s trip. “We said maybe this was going to be our last trip.” “Now we know that’s

In this Aug. 30 photo, Lou and Ron Davis get their gear together before leaving on a trip at their home in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Davises recently returned from a whitewater canoe trip on the Gulkana River where they both celebrated their 80th birthday. not the case,” Ron said. The couple is already planning to do some river trips next summer. Four rafts, three solo canoes and a tandem canoe came on this year’s Gulkana float in early August. They did the float in four nights and five days to have a full day to spend playing in the canyon where the biggest rapids are found. One member of the party went through the canyon six times. The Davises don’t look like they are 80 and have kept up both their canoeing and their other favorite sport, downhill skiing. They’ve seen the popularity of both sports increase among all age groups. “Years ago when you were 60 years old you could ski for free. Then when we got to 60 they bumped it up to 65. Now no one lets you ski for

free. There are too many old people skiing,” Lou Davis said. But canoeing presents some challenges. At 80, it’s harder to kneel on your knees for a long time, a technique for keeping a low center of gravity in turbulent water. They’ve also noticed they are not quite as fast at reacting to things. But most of all there’s the challenges of moving gear and portaging. But with friends available to do the lifting trips like the Gulkana still can be fun. The Davises do their share of the work preparing food. On this summer’s trip the Davis’ and a former canoeing student prepared all the food on this summer’s trip. Menus included meatloaf and mashed potatoes, Dutch oven pineapple upside down cake and stuffed bell peppers. Another favorite

they take on many trips are fresh baked rolls with filled with turkey meat. With rafts to carry gear, it’s possible to carry gear to make a comfortable campsite. The group carried a camp shower, a kitchen tent, a table, chairs and a welded aluminum stove that looks like something out of a catering truck. The Davises sleep on a wire frame queen-sized bed in a tent that’s big enough to stand up in. “That’s really new for us because we’ve been on little Themrarests and sleeping bags forever,” Ron said. With their gear ready to go and plenty of boating friends, among them many former students, the Davises already are looking ahead to trips in the 2013 paddling season. The Gulkana River will likely make the list.

This was the Mossy Oak booth at the Kansas State Fair that promoted the Kansas Monster Buck Classic.

Monster Buck Classic makes fair appearance As we strolled through one of the buildings at this year’s Kansas State Fair, I guess it was the “ginormous” set of deer antlers that first caught my eye. They looked so out-of-place; on one side of the booth I could have gotten my sneakers cleaned, on the other side I could have bought some sort of shiny trinket, and across the aisle they would have checked my blood pressure and who knows what else. But here, like an oasis in the midst of peddler-paradise was an eyecatching camouflaged booth sponsored by Mossy Oak Properties of the Heartland and promoting the Kansas Monster Buck Classic. Brian Smith grew up hunting ducks in the infamous flooded oak flats near Pine Bluff, Ark. When he was 12, his dad joined a deer camp and Smith was introduced to the addicting sport of deer hunting. Today Smith owns a chain of Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchens (formerly Popeye’s Chicken) in North Western Arkansas and Southern Missouri. He also owns the rights to the Mossy Oak Properties name (a real estate division of Mossy Oak that deals strictly in hunting property) for Kansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Iowa. While representing Mossy Oak Properties a couple years ago at the Kansas State Fair, it occurred to Smith that Kansas had no statewide big buck contest of any kind. Given the storied big buck history of Kansas, plus the fact that most states around us have some sort of big buck contest, Smith saw the opportunity to have a show here and promote the Mossy Oak Company in the process. He says “I saw it the same as bringing a Wal-Mart to a metropolitan area of several hundred thousand people who had no WalMart.” Smith had initially named the event the Big Buck Classic of Kansas, but a phone call from the founder of a similar event in Arkansas informed him that the name “Big Buck Classic” was a registered trademark owned by him, so the event became “Monster Buck Classic – We Are Kansas.” Smith says “I simply want the affair to be a celebration of the great sport of Kansas deer hunting. “ The Monster Buck Classic is for Kansas residents only and all deer entered in the contest must be taken fairly and legally in Kansas. Smith wants the atmosphere of the whole show to emphasize following the rules and regu-

Exploring Kansas Outdoors

Steve Gilliland lations for safe and ethical deer hunting set forth by the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. Deer entered in the contest may be harvested by any means legal in Kansas. This year’s classic will run from Jan. 25 through Jan. 27, 2013, at the Kansas Expo Center in Topeka. The details for this 2013 classic are still being finalized, but the 2012 event included more than 230 venders and exhibitors touting everything from soup to nuts in the world of deer hunting and featured non-stop hourly seminars by at least a dozen of your favorite professional celebrity hunters. The pinnacle of the show will be the monster buck contest Sunday afternoon, crowning the king of Kansas Monster Bucks in both typical and non-typical categories. The current royalty from 2012 are Lucas Cochren with a giant nontypical buck scoring 238 4/8, and Rachelle Karl with a beautiful typical buck scoring 182 1/8. These two will remain King and Queen of Kansas monster bucks until higher-scoring, legally taken Kansas deer are entered. A grim but interesting turn of events at last year’s first classic had Smith thinking the whole thing might just go up in smoke from the start. An absolutely monstrous typical whitetail rack was entered that not only won its category, but was easily a new Kansas state record as well – you might remember the story – it turned out to be poached. It was illegally spotlighted and killed at night and its head and giant rack cut-off, leaving the meat to spoil in some farmer’s pasture. In attendance at the contest were a few avid deer hunters who had watched and dreamed for years of harvesting that buck themselves, and who recognized the deer from the hundreds of trail camera pictures they had of it. KDWPT got involved and the poacher was arrested and stripped of his short-lived title. Smith says “The whole mess became a blessing in disguise as it showed our commitment to legal and ethical hunting and brought the event more press than we could possibly have gotten otherwise.”

Start-up company trying to help Lamar’s economy with blinds BY ANDRA BRYAN STEFANONI The Joplin Globe/Associated Press

LAMAR, Mo. – Two blocks from the former O’Sullivan Industries, which closed in 2007, a small locally grown company has capitalized on an autumn ritual to bring some jobs back to this community. Redneck Blinds, in its second year of production, will turn out 2,800 elevated deer blinds this year, shipping them as far away as Pennsylvania, Texas and Canada. Their chief product will be front and center this weekend as thousands of deer hunters

take up positions in woods and along farm fields in Kansas and Missouri. “We will sell all we can make,” CEO Danny Little said of the blinds. Little, a Lamar native who formed the company with three former O’Sullivan employees, said the hole in the community left by the closing of O’Sullivan Industries drove unemployment past 13 percent in 2007/2008. The community is still working to find a new tenant for the large plant. “At one time the peak (O’Sullivan) employment was 1,700 for a town of 4,500 peo-

ple,” said Little, who retired a few years ago as president of Lamar Bank & Trust. “You can imagine how devastating that was to the community. “But you’re not going to attract an 800- to 1,000-employee company to a town this size. The way for small towns to prosper and grow is going to be through the development of small businesses. It’s a lot better to have several small companies employing 25 to 50 people.” Between Redneck Blinds and Little’s companion company, Big Green Targets, about 50 jobs have been created in the past four years.

Little, a banker for 26 years, had set a goal by age 50 to begin exploring a different career path. “I wanted to sit on the other side of the desk,” he said. He experimented with a number of business opportunities, including a recycled foam that proved to be the perfect fill for archery targets – something he and his brother discovered in the backyard one afternoon four years ago. A year later, Little and Russ Worsley, a former O’Sullivan employee and hunter, began manufacturing Big Green Targets using the foam from a Michigan com-

pany. They relied on local hunters for research and development, then took samples to Little’s former classmates, who owns Roger’s Sporting Goods in Kansas City. “He bought a truckload, and that got us started,” Little said. Little also was a partner at the time in another business with another former O’Sullivan employee, Tim Riegel, who manufactured high-end fiberglass bodies for replica 1930s cars under the label Redneck Street Rods. “But when the economy tanked, the cars weren’t sell-

ing as well. Rather than just give up and close the company, we started looking at, ‘What can we make?’” Little said. They found their answer at a hunting trade show: fiberglass deer blinds. Worsley helped in developing the design, and Riegel was the head engineer on the project. Another partner and former O’Sullivan employee, Russ Hurt, got on board, and the four were soon busy building a prototype. Roger’s Sporting Goods ordered 200 blinds, and two years later, Redneck Blinds employs 35 people.

SPORTS TOP 25 ROUNDUP

Defense propels Tide to 52-0 romp over Arkansas THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Eddie Lacy ran for three touchdowns and No. 1 Alabama forced five turnovers in a 52-0 win over Arkansas on Saturday. Vinnie Sunseri and Haha Clinton-Dix had interceptions against the Razorbacks, who played without quarterback Tyler Wilson because he had a head injury in last week’s loss to Louisiana-Monroe. The shutout was the second straight for the Crimson Tide (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference). The last time Alabama, which has now forced 11 turnovers this season, had back-to-back shutouts was against Vanderbilt and Kentucky in 1980. AJ McCarron was 11-of-16 passing for 189 yards and a touchdown. The Razorbacks (1-2, 0-1) Arkansas had just 44 yards of total offense at halftime and 137 for the game. The Razorbacks were held scoreless in Razorback Stadium for the first time since a 7-0 loss to Baylor in 1966. No. 3 LSU 63, Idaho 14 – Ronald Martin and Lavar Edwards each intercepted deflected passes and returned them for scores, and No. 3 LSU rolled over winless Idaho. LSU intercepted Idaho’s Dominique Balckman four times, with Martin snagging two, en route to an NCAA FBS record 40thstraight non-conference regular season victory. LSU (3-0) also set a Tiger stadium mark with 20 straight home wins, while extending its nation-long regular-season winning streak to 16 games. LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger passed for 222 yards and two TDs. Kenny Hilliard rushed for 116 yards and two touchdowns. Freshman running back Jeremy Hill scored twice in his Tigers debut and Alfred Blue also had a rushing TD. Blackman was 23 of 36 for 174 yards and two TDs. Gary Walker had a 94-yard interception return for Idaho (0-3), setting up the Vandals’ first touchdown. No. 4 Oregon 63, Tennessee Tech 14 – Marcus Mariota threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns before No. 4 Oregon pulled its starters in a victory over Tennessee Tech. Multitalented De’Anthony Thomas had 222 all-purpose yards on 10 touches. He ran for a 59-yard touchdown and caught a 16-yard scoring pass from Mariota. The Ducks (3-0) were playing their final nonconference game before hosting Arizona next Saturday.

Gerald Herbert/Associated Press

Idaho running back Ryan Bass (5) is swarmed by LSU defenders for a 2-yard loss on a fourth down carry in the first half Saturday in Baton Rouge, La. They had 652 yards in total offense, compared to 177 yards for Tennessee Tech. Oregon did have its issues, however, with 12 penalties for 105 yards. The Golden Eagles (2-1) have never defeated an FBSlevel team in 28 tries. The game against the Ducks was the Ohio Valley Conference team’s first against a Pac-12 opponent. No. 5 Florida State 52, Wake Forest 0 – Chris Thompson scored on runs of 74 and 80 yards on successive carries to lead No. 5 Florida State over Wake Forest. Thompson, who suffered a broken back at Wake Forest a year ago that nearly ended his career, already had a career-high 197 yards following his 80-yard touchdown run that put the Seminoles into a 28-0 lead with 9:42 remaining in the first half. His 74-yard touchdown followed a 60-yard punt return TD by Rashad Greene as the Seminoles (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 38-0 at the half. Florida State’s defense, which has allowed just three points this season, held Wake Forest (2-1, 1-1 ACC) to 126 yards. Tanner Price managed only 82 passing yards and Michael Campanaro had two catches for 8 yards. No. 7 Georgia 56, Florida Atlantic 20 – Aaron Murray passed for a careerbest 342 yards and two touchdowns, also scored twice on short runs, and No. 7 Georgia bounced back from another slow start to rout Florida Atlantic. Playing without Jarvis Jones and two other defensive stalwarts, Georgia (3-0) struggled in the first half to slow a Florida Atlantic team that scored a single

touchdown against lowerdivision Wagner. The 44point underdog Owls (1-2) kept converting third downs and found themselves tied at 14 early in the second quarter. But the Bulldogs simply had too many weapons, piling up a school-record 713 yards. Murray hooked up with Michael Bennett on a 67-yard touchdown and went to Arthur Lynch for a 36-yard TD. The junior quarterback scored himself on a pair of 1-yard sneaks. No. 8 South Carolina 49, UAB 6 – Connor Shaw went 8 of 14 for 107 yards before reinjuring his throwing shoulder as No. 8 South Carolina beat UAB. Shaw left the game after taking a brutal hit just late in the first half. Team officials said the junior aggravated the bruised right shoulder that kept him out of last week’s game. Sophomore Dylan Thompson took over again, throwing a 95-yard touchdown pass to Damiere Byrd that put South Carolina (30) up 35-6 midway through the third quarter. Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier picked up his 200th college coaching win, joining Virginia Tech’s Frank Beamer, Texas’ Mack Brown and Nevada’s Chris Ault as the only active Division I coaches to reach that mark. UAB (0-2) gained 267 yards, but was kept out of the end zone. No. 11 Clemson 41, Furman 7 – Tajh Boyd threw for 310 yards and three touchdown passes, Sammy Watkins had a 58-yard touchdown run in his season debut and No. 11 Clemson won its 30th straight over Furman. Andre Ellington added a pair of rushing touchdowns

BIG 12 ROUNDUP

No. 9 WVU rolls past James Madison 42-12 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LANDOVER, Md. – Geno Smith completed 34 of 39 passes for 411 yards and five touchdowns Saturday, and No. 9 West Virginia rolled to a 42-12 win over James Madison. Smith set the school’s career passing yardage record, topping Marc Bulger. Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin both had 100 yards receiving before halftime for the Mountaineers, who improved to 2-0 and are 13-0 all time against FCS schools. Bailey finished with 173 yards on 13 catches and three touchdowns. Austin had 113 yards on 11 receptions and one score. The Dukes upset then-No. 13 Virginia Tech two years ago, but they never challenged the Mountaineers. They fell to 2-1. The Mountaineers hosted the game at the Washington Redskins stadium to help maintain an East Coast profile now that they’ve moved to the Big 12. Oklahoma St. 65, Louisiana-Lafayette 24 – Backup J.W. Walsh threw for 347 yards and four touchdowns in relief of injured starting quarterback Wes Lunt, leading Oklahoma State to a blowout of Louisiana-Lafayette. Walsh also ran for 73 yards and a score after replacing Lunt, who hurt his

left knee on the sixth play of the game and left the field on crutches. The Cowboys (2-1) didn’t miss a beat without him, scoring on their first eight possessions to build a 44-0 halftime lead and setting a school record with 742 yards of total offense. Blake Jackson had 112 yards receiving and a touchdown, and Josh Stewart added 104 yards and two touchdowns through the air. Joseph Randle ran for 105 yards and two scores for Oklahoma State, which rebounded from a 59-38 loss at Arizona. Blaine Gautier threw for one touchdown and ran for another for the Ragin’ Cajuns (2-1). Texas Tech 49, New Mexico 14 – Seth Doege threw for six touchdowns and 340 yards to lead Texas Tech past New Mexico. Doege threw touchdown passes of 20, 39, 7, 12, 11 and 14 yards and completed 27 of 35 passes before being replaced by backup Michael Brewer early in the third quarter. Eric Ward caught three of Doege’s touchdown passes and Jace Amaro got two of them as the senior quarterback made it look easy for Texas Tech (3-0). The Red Raiders finished with 702 total yards, 325 on the ground. New Mexico (1-2) struggled on offense and alternat-

ed starter B.R. Holbrook and backup Cole Gautsche at quarterback throughout the game. The Lobos finished with just 127 yards of offense. The lone bright spot for New Mexico, shut out in the second half, came when Chase Clayton returned a kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown to pull the Lobos within 28-14. Baylor 48, Sam Houston St. 23 – Nick Florence passed for three touchdowns and set up another with a 60yard run as Baylor needed a second-half rally to beat Sam Houston State. Florence threw touchdowns to Jordan Najvar and Terrence Williams in the third quarter as Baylor (2-0) erased a 20-10 halftime deficit. His 60-yard run in the fourth set up Glasco Martin’s 5-yard touchdown after Sam Houston State (11), which plays in the Football Championship Subdivision, had pulled within 24-23. Florence passed for 312 yards. Williams had six receptions for 131 yards and two touchdowns. Brian Bell passed for 285 yards for the Bearkats, but fumbled to set up Baylor’s first touchdown in the third quarter, then fell when taking the snap on fourth down at the Baylor one in the fourth. Other scores: Iowa State 37, W. Illinois 3.

for the Tigers (3-0). Watkins scored in the first quarter after taking an inside handoff from Boyd and rushing past the right side of Furman’s defense. The All-American sophomore receiver spent the past two games on the sideline, suspended for a May drug arrest. He finished with four catches for 52 yards. Boyd’s three scoring throws gave him 43 for his career, second all time at Clemson and just six behind the record held by Charlie Whitehurst. Furman of the Football Championship Subdivision opened 0-3 for the first time since 1979. No. 12 Ohio State 35, California 28 – Braxton Miller lofted a 72-yard touchdown pass to an allalone Devin Smith with 3:26 left and Christian Bryant snuffed out California’s last chance with an interception to power No. 12 Ohio State. The Golden Bears (1-2) missed three field goals and had a touchdown called back by a penalty, while the Buckeyes (3-0) gave up 512 yards and were outplayed for much of the second half. Taking over at his own 25

with the score knotted, it took just three plays until on third-and-7 a defensive back thought Miller would run and he instead threw deep to a wide-open Smith. Bryant then picked off Zach Maynard’s pass and returned it 38 yards to end the Bears’ last threat. Pittsburgh 35, No. 13 Virginia Tech 17 – Pittsburgh’s Ray Graham ran for 94 yards and two scores and added an 18-yard touchdown reception to lead the Panthers to an upset of No. 13 Virginia Tech. Tino Sunseri passed for 283 yards and three touchdowns and freshman running back Rushel Shell added 157 yards as Pitt (1-2) gave coach Paul Chryst his first career victory in emphatic fashion. The Panthers never trailed, forced four turnovers and took advantage of uncharacteristically sloppy play by the Hokies. Virginia Tech (2-1) had won 13 straight true road games, the longest active streak in the country, but let Pitt race to a quick threetouchdown lead and never really threatened. Logan Thomas completed just 14 of 31 passes for 265 yards and one touchdown against three interceptions. No. 17 Michigan 63, Massachusetts 13 – Denard Robinson put up 397 yards of total offense and accounted for four touchdowns in No. 17 Michigan’s rout of Massachusetts. Robinson, who came out of the game with Michigan (2-1) leading 56-13 late in the third quarter, rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown and completed 16 of 24 passes for 291 yards and three scores. Tailback Fitzgerald Toussaint, who missed Michigan’s opener due to suspension and then carried for just seven yards against Air Force, had 85 yards and a touchdown against the Minutemen. Former Wolverine Michael Cox, now a grad student at UMass, led the Minutemen (0-3) with 76 yards rushing, but Michigan finished the game with

a 585-259 edge in yardage. No. 18 Florida 37, No. 23 Tennessee 20 – Jeff Driskel threw two touchdown passes and Trey Burton rushed for a pair of scores as No. 18 Florida scored the final 24 points to beat No. 23 Tennessee and make it eight straight wins against its SEC East rival. Burton, a fullback who often takes snaps out of the Wildcat formation, raced 80 yards down the right sideline to tie the score 20-20 with 3:15 left in the third quarter. Florida (3-0, 2-0) went ahead for good on Driskel’s 23-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jordan Reed with 30 seconds remaining in the third. Driskel added a 75yard touchdown pass to Frankie Hammond in the fourth quarter. Caleb Sturgis kicked three field goals for the Gators. No. 19 Louisville 39, North Carolina 34 – Teddy Bridgewater threw three first-half touchdowns and No. 19 Louisville scored on its first six possessions, and then had to hold North Carolina with a late goal-line stand to come away with a victory. Bryn Renner settled down from a rough first half to rally the Tar Heels (1-2) from a 36-7 deficit with four second-half touchdowns, including a screen pass to Romar Morris for a 50-yard touchdown with 1:45 remaining. North Carolina’s Norkeithus Otis then forced Adrian Bushell to fumble the ensuing kickoff, and the Tar Heels recovered at the Cardinals’ 10. But after moving to the 3, North Carolina was penalized for a false start and Renner’s final pass two plays later was broken up by Andrew Johnson in the end zone. Bridgewater threw for 218 of his 279 yards in the first half for the Cardinals (3-0). He finished 23 of 28 passing for 279 yards. Renner finished with five TD passes. Other scores: No. 21 Stanford 21, No. 2 USC 14.

Family af‘fair’

Photos by Lindsey Bauman/The Hutchinson News

The YoYo ride at the Kansas State Fair is filled with the family members of Ruth Duarte.

They get in the swing in honor of their ‘Abuelita’ BY KATHY HANKS The Hutchinson News Khanks@hutchnews.com

During the last year of Ruth Duarte’s life she proved to her family no one was ever too old for the Kansas State Fair. Her love for the fair was passed on to her progeny who took one last swing Saturday for the “Abuelita” they adored. Despite needing a walker to get around the midway, Ruth Duarte wasn’t about to miss a ride on the swing at the 2011 Kansas State Fair. The 88-yearold’s granddaughter even snapped a photo of the diminutive lady sitting in the seat of the ride known as the YoYo. Then on March 12, of this year, Ruth Duarte died. When this year’s fair arrived, some of Duarte’s 12 living children, 43 grandchildren, 50 greatgrandchildren and 15 great great-grandchildren came to the midway to keep the family tradition alive. Granddaughter Kim Lawson was recovering from surgery last year but promised her grandmother that somehow she would take her to the fair. “By the Grace of God, I was able to keep my promise,” Lawson said. “I must say she moved around faster on the fairway with her walker than I did. I never thought it would be our last fair together.”

Ruth Duarte loved to ride the YoYo swing ride at the Kansas State Fair. Her family rode the ride together Saturday in her honor. The family of Ruth Duarte gathered at the YoYo on Saturday at the Kansas State Fair to ride the swings in her honor. shouting and swinging arms and Family was everything to Ruth and her children decided they would ride the YoYo this year in her honor. Sons Andy, Juney, Stevie and Billy were there as were daughters Eleanor, Geralyn and Gina, along with there children and grandchildren. Trying to coordinate it so they could all get on the ride at the

same time was the job of James Smith, with North American Midway Entertainment. He said they were happy to accommodate special events like a family riding in memory of a loved one. One of their units was in Nashville, Tenn., on Saturday night, having a wedding on their midway. Smith made sure all the

Duarte’s rode together. There were 32 seats and they filled all but three. Safely strapped in, the ride took off, carrying the family higher and higher into the air as it swung in a huge circle. Some were pensive, as if in prayer, others were letting the tears flow as they remembered their mother. Grandkids were

legs, laughing and calling her name. It was a complete range of emotions for the family as they sailed through the air thinking of the woman they adored. “It had been so long since I had been on the ride,” said a tearful Heather Duarte. “Doing this in my grandmother’s honor was the best thing in the world.”

A wind turbine was erected on Friday at the fairgrounds through a renewable energy grant and will serve as a living exhibition.

Blowing in the ‘wind’

A few good gigs

The engines were slowly warming up for the Roy Coffey Antique Farm Machinery Show outside the building where the Kansas State Fair Board was meeting Saturday morning. Earl and Ivalee Vanderhoff, who manage the 4-H Encampment building, came to the fair board meeting to thank the fair for more than 300 new mattresses, and ceiling fans in some of the dorm rooms. The encampment is available to all 4-H members exhibiting at the fair, their family, leaders and 4-H alumni if there is space available. It’s a cheap night’s stay for only $15, Ivalee Vanderhoff said. But guests must bring their own sheets, towels, blankets and pillows. The rooms are more like sleeping porches, than dorm rooms. Denny Stoecklein, fair manager, reported that Fri-

The Tropical Shores steel drum band entertained crowds over eight performances during the Kansas State Fair. The band isn’t from Jamaica or another island nation known for beach sounds, as the name suggests. Instead, the fourperson family band is from Haven, with husband and wife Brad and Linda Shores leading the way. Brad Shores said he and his wife have been playing the steel drum together since 1989, when they lived in Arizona. The couple moved back to Hutchinson and Shores became band director at Nickerson High School. The couple eventually had three children, all of whom were recruited to be part of their steel drum family band. “They (the children) were kind of a captive audience,” Shores said. “They did it because they wanted to do what we were doing.” Tuesday afternoon, The Tropical Shores entertained about 20 fairgoers at the Gottschalk Gazebo. Shores said “Under the Sea,” from “The Little Mermaid,” was one of their favorite songs to perform, if only because it was one of the most widely recognized steel drum songs. He said it was becoming more and more difficult to get their family’s schedules coordinated enough for them to perform together. Because of this, Shores said the group would likely return to its original lineup without the kids. Shores’ 21- and 17year-old children performed with him and his wife on Tuesday. Shores said his 24year-old daughter has her own steel drum band. Although The Tropical Shores lineup will likely change soon, Shores said everyone in the band was excited to have at least a few gigs at this year’s state fair. “We work more this week than any other week of the year,” he said. – Kayla Regan

Traditional treat Fairgoers who missed the New Year’s cookies will be happy to learn they are back at this year’s fair along with the lady who knows how to make them just right. The popular German Mennonite treat had been a tradition at the Kansas State Fair for more than 30 years. Elva Schroeder was preparing the fitter-like balls at the Central Christian School’s food concession. However, the school no longer has the booth at the fair and last year Kathie and Jack Girst took over the space in Cottonwood Court.

Freshly made New Year’s Cookies fill trays at Girst Deli and Bakery inside the Cottonwood Court. Year-round caterers, the Girsts provide a menu of sandwich wraps, salads and freshly baked cupcakes, cookies and other bakery treats. However, last year there were so many requests for the New Year’s cookies that after a year sabbatical Schroeder has returned to the fair, cooking the raisinfilled deep-fried yeast balls which she covers with a powdered sugar glaze. On a recent fair morning when most of Hutchinson was just stirring, Schroeder and Nancy Belknap were waiting for the yeast to proof before they could begin the process of making about 18dozen New Year’s cookies. But, after the 18-dozen were finished, they decided to make 9 dozen more. They are a popular item.

Schroeder learned about the Mennonite treat when she married her husband. “It’s a family tradition from his side of the family,” Schroeder said. Once she learned how to make them, she began tweaking the recipe and now adds less flour. On a recent morning she took an ice cream scoop of dough and dropped the ball in the deep-fat fryer. She explains it’s important to make sure the air is out of the dough or it will float. Then they must constantly turn each ball. Kathie Girst picks one up to sample. She appreciates the extra help in the concession while she and her daughter Beth Duft stick to all the other foods on the menus.

day night’s concert with Heart sold 2,327 tickets and covered only 64 percent of its guarantee. Billy Currington with Jake Owen Saturday night’s big concert had covered 94 percent of its guarantee selling 4,266 tickets. In other news, Stoecklein reported that the seventh calf had been born at the fair, in the birthing center. And a wind turbine had been installed Friday. It was suppose to be installed before the opening of the fair, and there had been concern how they would be able to set it up by Gate 8 with so many people coming and going. But Stoecklein said the work was completed. The 4-kilo watt turbine was made possible through a Renewable Energy Grant provided by the Kansas Energy Office. “It will be a living exhibit,” Stoecklein said. – Kathy Hanks

2012 KANSAS STATE FAIR

Army vet happy to spend day at fair The fair can be therapy. That’s how it turned out for Dale Monroe who was warming a bench on a chilly early morning at the fair. It was 9 a.m. and he was sitting alone, the only person to occupy a bench in the park area between the Administration Building and the Eisenhower Building. The only sound was the cool water hitting the sidewalk after shooting up from the fountain near his feet. Monroe needed to rest. “This might be my last fair,” he said. Walking around wasn’t easy for the 72-year-old. “I got this far and had to sit,” he said. Monroe appeared European in his black beret with the unusual insignia and black jacket. As the retired U.S. Army staff sergeant began talking about his work serving with the Army’s Air Defense Battalion, he seemed to forget his tired legs and he was a young man again. He even smiled broadly as he explained the insignia on the beret. There is a crest for every unit; each is one-third of the sixth which were the numbers of the Battalion of the Air Defense. There was a horse that signified mobility and a man with a bow and arrow, which was a symbol for firing the missiles. Though it sounded very deep, Monroe thought the de-

Benchwarmers

Kathy Hanks sign was very clever. From Sterling originally, his family moved to Illinois in 1948, after his father died. When he enlisted in the military it was an opportunity to see half the world. He traveled from Europe to the North Pole. It was during the Cold War and Monroe was trained to set up mobile sites for nuclear missiles. After 20 years in the service, he went to work for Cessna and when they downsized he worked at the Lyons salt plant for more than 25 years. He is now retired living in Sterling. Divorced after 30 years of marriage, his children grown and gone, Monroe said he is the last of his family around. He never came to the State Fair when he was a young boy before moving to Illinois. He did begin coming back in 1979. He always walks through the buildings and sees the exhibits. Coming to the fair was a diversion for the man who said he was ready to throw his TV set out in the street. He has grown weary of watching the boob tube. Instead he had come to re-

The scene might be somewhat different than 100 fairs ago, but one thing is true, so many people are smitten with the Kansas State Fair. The Kansas State Fair will close today until next year. With that closing we’re making history. Next year, we’ll celebrate the fair’s 100th birthday. Such a feat is worth a stroll back in time. The fair is a slice of wholesome Americana. It showcases people taking pride in what they do, whether it is raising cattle and wheat, 4-H or a vendor

BEST OF THE DAY

Duarte’s family Yo-Yo ride showcased a wide range of emotions A highlight of Saturday was watching Ruth Duarte’s children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren gather to ride her favorite ride on the midway. When I told a co-worker I was going to cover a family taking a last ride for their deceased loved one, she asked if I was sure the swing was on the midway this year? So early in the morning just as the sleepy-eyed carnival workers were beginning to open tents and uncover games, I ran into someone with North American Midway Entertainment, who told me there was no swing just a ride

said to come get him before the Duartes arrived and he would make sure they could all ride at the same time. In the afternoon when it was time to meet them, I stopped by the office and James Smith went over to the ride with me. The Duartes were gathering and began introducing themselves. When they had cleared the ride for the family, Ruth’s Lindsey Bauman/The Hutchinson News

daughter Eleanor whispered to me that they were going to let the entire family ride for free. As they began coming through the gate, grown men and women and young children, I could imagine what this would have meant to their mother. They began swinging out into the air, and I noticed a variety of expressions. Some were shouting with delight, waving their

hands and legs. But others were crying and it appeared that several were praying, there was such a range of emotions as Ruth Duarte’s children twirled above me and their feelings washed over me. Her granddaughter Kim Lawson wrote me prior to Saturday, “I am sure her beautiful spirit will be present.” And I really believe it was. – Kathy Hanks
