Two local races remain too close to call

State House candidates separated by 61 votes with provisionals outstanding

Commissioner race separated by six votes

By Lisa Seiser

m.editor@thedailyunion.net Republican Allan Rothlisberg is pretty confident the election results for the State Representative District 65 will not change. As of Wednesday, the unofficial numbers have him in the lead by 61 votes over Democrat Melody Saxton, 2,0601,999. Rothlisberg is talking as though he is ready to head to Topeka to represent the district. He said he will be renting a hotel room during the week in Topeka when in session and will return to the area on weekends to speak with constituents. “I want to thank everyone who supported me,” Rothlisberg said. “I also want to tell people who didn’t that I am here and I will represent everybody.” However, Saxton isn’t quite ready to give in to election night numbers and talk about her opponent going to Topeka. According to the Geary County Clerk’s office, a total of 563 provisional county ballots have yet to be counted. When the Board of Canvassers meets on Monday, they will decide who counts and who does not. “With over 500 provisionals still outstanding, I am not making any decisions until Monday,” Saxton said. “I am very proud of the campaigns that the Democrats as a whole ran.

Early Wednesday afternoon, Republican candidate Mike Watson was out picking up his campaign signs and said he was ready to catch up with yard work in the wake of his effort to earn a seat on the Geary County Commission. At about the same time, Democrat incumbent Larry Hicks talked about being fortunate to have been able to serve and the fact that he is optimistic about the future of the L arry county.

Governor, local dignitaries celebrate CCCC expansion B y C hase Jordan

c.jordan@thedailyunion.net Melissa Brown currently is working toward her certification in agribiotechnology. The Cloud County Community College student hopes to be finished with the program in 2013 before moving on to other educational opportunities. “I like to mess around with genetics and science. That’s what I’ve always done and that’s what I like to do,” Brown said. Along with CCCC, state and local officials, she helped snip a red ribbon Wednesday afternoon to celebrate a new era which will help students in

her field achieve and prepare for the future. The ceremony was hosted by the Junction City Chamber of Commerce and was followed by an open house and tour of the facility. “I think it’s absolutely fantastic,” Brown said. “I like the fact that we’re not bumping elbows any more and we have spaces.” Like many students and officials, she’s excited to be a part of the program. A proposal for the new agribiotechnology and science building was submitted in 2011 to the Geary County Commission, which approved a $1.22 million bond resolution to construct the building

on county land. The county’s Public Building Commission approved contracts with Deam & Deam LLC Architects and R&R Developers, Inc., for the 6,000-square-foot, single-story building. It has two classrooms, two wet labs and a dry lab. All of the rooms are equipped with cuttingedge technology. The lab equipment was purchased through the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College Career Training (TAACCT) grant program. CCCC was the recipient of $1 million of the $19 million grant submitted by Washburn Institute of Technology. Gloria Comfort, grant coorPlease see CCCC, 12A

City commission sets hangar leasing cost

State GOP looking to advance its policies

Divided government awaits re-elected president

The five members of the Junction City Commission unanimously voted to approve new terms for leasing space in the hangars at Freeman Field. The price for aviators to use the space is 15 cents per square foot. The commission also heard from a representative of a local business that is asking for new terms on its rent and property tax charges. See page 3A for more on both these stories

The Democrats may have retained control in the U.S. Senate and held the top spot in the federal executive branch, but the Republican party solidified its presence in Topeka during Tuesday’s elections. More specifically, more conservative GOP members were able to supplant moderate members of the party in state government, giving those legislators more leeway in passing its agenda. For more, see page 4A.

The day after holding his seat in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama returned to Washington. To meet him there are two chambers of Congress controlled by opposing political parties. But Obama, House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid all expressed confidence that compromise could be possible as the country edges closer to the edge of the “fiscal cliff.” Details on page 10A.

While local results didn’t start trickling in until around 9:30 p.m., traffic spiked around 7 p.m. and continued to be heavy until 11:30. Even after most had gone to bed, website visits remained well above normal during the overnight hours, as final results were posted around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. Visits to www.thedailyunion.net were still above average Wednesday afternoon, leading to a dominant two-day bump from the election.

city.beat@thedailyunion.net The value of an airport is difficult to determine, but so are many amenities that add to a community’s quality of life. City commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to approve new Freeman Field hangar land lease terms as negotiated by city staff and the Airport Advisory Board. The new lease charges tenants 15 cents per square foot of hangar space and makes them responsible for insurance and maintenance costs. Previous discussions had called for a doubling of the rent, but no neighboring airport charges more than 15 cents per square foot for hangar space. Manhattan also charges 15 cents. Abilene charges 10 cents. Commissioner Scott Johnson was frustrated but understood keeping the rent at 15 cents. Johnson said he believed the people who use the airport should pay more for its operation, rather than rely on city taxpayer money. “We can say it provides jobs and pays taxes, but so does every other business and all of them pay their

own way,” he said. “You can get by without one. It’s nice to have. We need to look into getting this thing closer to breaking even.” Assistant city manager Cheryl Beatty said the airport does not break even, but it does help the city in other ways. “Airports, like swimming pools, don’t make money,” she said. “It is a quality of life issue.” Beatty also said the Kansas Department of Transportation in 2010 conducted a study that estimated the airport’s economic impact on the community to be more than $12.6 million. The study reported 91 jobs valued at $3,333,200 annually were linked to Freeman Field. Commissioners Johnson and Jack Taylor agreed the new lease is a step toward managing an airport that generates more income. “I think we’re (moving) in the right direction,” Taylor said. “I understand things like the golf course, the airport and the swimming pool, we may not make money on, but I think we have an understanding of where we are and how much we have to look for.” The discussion was tabled at the Oct. 26 meeting due to Taylor’s absence.

“We can say (Freeman Field) provides jobs and pays taxes, but so does every other business and all of them pay their own way.” Scott Johnson

Junction City commissioner expressing his frustration with the cost of hangar space at Freeman Field. The current land lease income is 15 cents per square foot, which city staff says will provide an annual income of $7,416 if all hangar leases are renewed. Beatty said the airport houses 20 to 25 planes throughout the year. Mayor Pat Landes asked Beatty if more hangars could be built, which would not only increase revenue, but also increase other benefits. “There would be room to build more hangars out there,” Beatty answered. “With existing (hangars), they’re all full. The more planes you have, the more likely you are to attract more businesses out there.” To make amendments to the current lease, the city first had to terminate existing leases. Lease holders were notified of the termination and told a new lease would be pre-

INTO THE FUTURE

Tim Weideman • The Daily Union

Jim Clark Suzuki at 834 Grant Ave. faces an unknown future after American Suzuki Motor Corporation on Monday announced it had filed for bankruptcy. On Tuesday, Jim Clark General Manager Willie Thornberg said the Grant Ave. dealership will continue to exist in some fashion.

Suzuki bankruptcy shouldn’t affect local dealer B y T im Weideman

city.beat@thedailyunion.net Despite American Suzuki Motor Corporation on Monday filing for bankruptcy, Jim Clark Suzuki in Junction City will continue to exist, although in what fashion is uncertain. American Suzuki Motor announced it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and plans to slowly discontinue auto sales in the United States. The company is based in Brea, Calif., and is the sole distributor of Suzuki Motor Corporation automobiles, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles and marine outboard engines. Jim Clark General Manager Willie Thornberg said the future of the Suzuki dealership, located at 834 Grant Ave., is not clear; however, a few options are on the table. “This is relatively new information,” he said. “We don’t necessarily have a plan in place.” Thornberg said the dealership may become a satellite location for Jim Clark Auto Center, located at 911 Golden Belt Blvd., which sells Cadillac, Chevrolet and Suzuki vehicles. American Suzuki Motor in a press release Monday stated it determined its automobile division faced several challenges in the competitive United States market, including low sale volumes and “unfavorable” foreign exchange rates. The company stated it remains committed to motorcycle, ATV and marine products. Suzuki automobile owners will remain fully protected by warranty, according to

sented near the end of the current lease, which ends Dec. 31, 2012. The airport board worked with city staff to recommend changes to the lease, which includes a multiyear term rather than a one-year term. The city budgeted $73,000 for the airport this year and will provide $125,000 for the airport in 2013. Johnson said city staff needs to explore more avenues to increase airport income and decrease city spending on the facility. He added Geary County residents should help pay for airport expenses. “This airport does not benefit the people of Junction City any more than it does the people of the county,” he said. “That needs to be looked into and making up the difference on that loss.”

The corporation will honor any automobile buyback agreements currently in place with financial institutions. While American Suzuki Motor assists some dealerships transition to exclusively parts and service operations, others eventually will close, the company stated. Thornberg said the Grant Avenue location still will provide parts and service to area Suzuki owners. “I’m sure that location will still service Suzuki products,” he said. “The mechanism hasn’t been explained on that. We’ve got a lot of Suzuki owners in the area.” American Suzuki Motor stated it will sell its remaining inventory before completely shutting down automobile sales. “When that stock is depleted, you won’t be able to buy a new Suzuki (in the United States),” Thornberg said. “But it’ll still be under warranty and you’ll be able to buy parts.” As part of its Chapter 11 filings, American Suzuki Motor stated it intends to submit a proposed Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure statement detailing how the nonautomobile products will be maintained and how automotive dealers will transition to parts and service operations. Suzuki Motor Corporation, which is unaffected by the bankruptcy, plans to purchase the American subsidiary’s other products and automotive service operation, according to the press release. The reorganized corporation will retain the American Suzuki Motor name.

City commissioners are not keen on providing financial assistance to Jupiter Kansas, Inc., because of the revenue the city would lose. At Tuesday night’s meeting, city staff proposed lease amendments for the company’s city-owned building at 2618 Mid America Drive. Through those amendments, the city would lose $42,375 in rent reductions and property tax abatements. However, the amendments include a clawback arrangement that would allow the city to recover payments if Jupiter Kansas folds. The company recently approached the city to seek help regarding its financial problems caused by a decline in the wind energy industry. The company discussed the issues with city staff. Together, they negotiated amendments to the company’s lease and approached the commission to approve those amendments. On Tuesday night, Jupiter Kansas project manager Mads Kragelund spoke to commissioners about the amendments. He said his business in Junction City has substantially declined and is predicted to continue to decline into 2013. Commissioner Scott Johnson was the most outspoken against the amendments. “I don’t know why this

makes sense,” he said. “Businesses all over town are struggling and they’d like someone to reduce their rent.” Johnson said he did not know why the city should help if the company’s investors would not. Commissioner Jack Taylor agreed. “To me, what you’re saying is, ‘We don’t want to take the risk, but Junction City, you take it,’” he told Kragelund. Kragelund said forecasts show business will pick up in late 2013 into 2014, but the company needs help making it to that point. “We’re experiencing, right now, a tough period of time where our activity has dropped 80 percent,” he told commissioners. “There’s no way I can justify, as a plant manager, keeping our plant open just looking at the numbers. That’s just not good business.” Jupiter Kansas, Inc. is owned by Jupiter Group, a Denmark-based producer of wind turbine components. In August 2010, the company opened its manufacturing plant at the cityowned facility. The company employed 25 people during its financial peak in 2011. It now employes nine. Kragelund said he has found building improvement projects to keep employees busy and avoid further cuts. The company has operations in Philadelphia, but that does not serve the Please see Wary, 7A

Going the right’s way State GOP sees less spending, more tax cuts B y John H anna

The Associated Press TOPEKA — Conservative Republicans anticipated Wednesday that they’ll trim Kansas’ budget and even consider additional tax cuts after cementing large majorities in the Legislature that should give GOP Gov. Sam Brownback broad freedom to move the state further to the right. Republicans were poised to maintain their majorities of 32-8 in the Senate and 92-33 in the House, but the more important dynamic was within the GOP. The Senate had been controlled by GOP moderates, who worked with Democrats to stall some of Brownback’s initiatives, but conservatives scored big victories in the August primary — then followed up on them by winning in Tuesday’s election. Conservatives are now on track to hold a supermajority of 27 in the 40-member Senate. They also could have as many as 75 seats in the 125-member House, short of the two-thirds majority of 84 needed to approve possible changes in the state constitution but more than enough to pass a wide range of proposed laws on taxes, abortion and other issues. Massive income tax cuts enacted this year have left the state facing a self-inflicted budget shortfall, and Brownback will need the newly constituted Legislature’s approval for spending cuts or measures to bring in more revenue — with an emphasis on belt-tightening far more likely. With a new financial forecast Tuesday, legislative researchers immediately projected a $328 million gap between anticipated revenues and current spending commitments by July 2014. “This is manageable,” said retiring House Speaker Mike O’Neal, a conservative Hutchinson Republican and the chief executive officer of the powerful Kansas Chamber of Commerce, which aided conservative GOP candidates with mailings and broadcast advertising. “A cer-

tain amount of reduction in government is coming and should be coming.” Income tax cuts enacted this year for 2013 — reducing individual income tax rates, dropping the top rate to 4.9 percent from 6.45 percent and exempting the owners of 191,000 businesses from taxes — are estimated to be worth $4.5 billion over the next six years and are designed to stimulate the economy. But some conservatives want to go further, moving the state toward eliminating income taxes altogether. Legal constraints on state spending increases also are on the agenda of anti-tax, smallgovernment groups like Americans for Prosperity, and many conservatives would like to pursue proposals to give parents more alternatives to their current public schools. Also, Brownback has previously proposed changing how appellate court members are chosen, cutting out a commission that screens applications for the governor and creating a role for legislators. Democrats had attempted to make this year’s legislative elections a referendum on Brownback and the income tax cuts, portraying the reductions as reckless and likely to lead to massive cuts in aid to public schools, social services and other programs. Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon, a former state revenue secretary, said the new projection of a budget shortfall vindicated their arguments. But exit polling of more than 700 voters showed that Kansans who participated in Tuesday’s election generally gave Brownback good reviews after nearly two years in office. Still, Wagnon said, Democrats aren’t anticipating changing their message, and she saw some positive signs in Democratic incumbents, particularly in the Senate, who overcame efforts by the GOP, the chamber, AFP and other Brownback allies to oust them. “They tried desperately hard to put us out of business,” she said. “They didn’t do that, but we didn’t pick up the seats we

Voters cast their ballots at the old Brown School Tuesday in rural Wellsville, Kan. The state’s Republican party solidified its majority positions in both chambers of the state Legislature, allowing Gov. Sam Brownback to pursue more conservative policies. needed to derail their train.” Most of the focus was on the Senate, because of the alliance between GOP moderate leaders and Democrats to thwart Brownback on some issues such as remaking the appellate courts. Most of the key races were in northeast Kansas, and three Democratic senators targeted by the GOP either won their races or led in final unofficial results — Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley of Topeka, Tom Holland of Baldwin City and Laura Kelly of Topeka. But Democratic Sen. Kelly Kultala of Kansas City was trailing significantly in her race. In the House, 11 incumbents, six Democrats and five Republicans, lost or were trailing in unofficial results. But three of the Democrats and two of the Republicans were in incumbent-

on-incumbent contests forced by political redistricting. The results of legislative elections left conservatives celebrating. “I’m very energized,” said Rep. Tom Arpke, a conservative Salina Republican who won a seat in the Senate. “Kansas has some really good days ahead of it.” Brownback hasn’t spelled out his agenda for next year’s legislative session, which convenes in January. Spokeswoman Sherriene Jones-Sontag said in working through budget issues, the governor will protect aid to public schools, social services, public safety and other core government programs. “He’s committed to a smaller government, one that works more effectively and more efficiently,” she said.

TOPEKA — Kansas officials are considering their next steps to implement the federal health care law now that the presidential election has been decided and deadlines are looming. The state has until Nov. 16 to tell the federal government whether it wants to be a partner in creating an online health insurance marketplace. Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger’s office is preparing a partnership application and will seek grant money to implement the exchange. But to do so, Praeger, a moderate Republican, must get a letter of support for the state’s partnership from Gov. Sam Brownback, a conservative Republican who is opposed to the health care law. The two are expected to meet this week to discuss the letter and application. Both are elected officials and have been at odds over how the state should proceed in implementing the law. Linda Sheppard, project manager for implementing the law, said Praeger’s staff hadn’t spoken with the governor about what is included in the state’s application and didn’t speculate on the chances of his approval. “He has been very consistent that he has not wanted to talk about this and not willing to look at these issues until after the election,” Sheppard said. Brownback delayed the state’s decisions hoping that a Mitt Romney victory would lead to a reprieve for states. However, with President Barack Obama’s victory on Tuesday night and a ruling this summer by the U.S. Supreme Court upholding the law, chances of the law’s repeal vanished. The governor’s spokeswoman, Sherriene Jones Sontag, declined to speculate whether Brownback would sign off on the insurance department’s application to partner with the federal exchange. The federal health care law was a factor in Tuesday’s legislative election results, following the trend set in 2010 when Brownback was elected and large numbers of conservative Republicans were elected to the Legislature. Nearly all ran on the platform of opposing the health care law over concerns that it was an unconstitutional intrusion on state and individual rights.

c.jordan@thedailyunion.net On April 10, 2011, while serving in the Zhari District of Afghanistan, Staff Sgt. Jamie Jarboe told his soldiers to “Just follow me.” Later, he was shot by a sniper. “He made it home to American soil,” his wife Melissa said. After 120 surgeries and rehabilitation efforts, the soldier assigned to the 4th Squadron, 4th Calvary Regiment, 1st ID, passed away in March. In the last few weeks of his life, Jamie knew about his terminal state. “We basically spent the rest of his life planning what he wanted to do with mine,” Melissa said. “He wanted me to take care of our children, to live life and to take care of his soldiers.” With the advice and suggestions of attorneys and military officials, she created the Jamie Jarboe Foundation in August. The purpose of the organization is to bring military awareness to the Midwest and to provide medical assistance and emotional support to soldiers and veterans. Assistance efforts include helping individuals

cope with post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide prevention. A memorial event to honor active duty, reserve and retired military is scheduled for 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. today in the 800 block of Kansas Avenue on Fort Riley. It will feature boots with pictures and stories on the back. “It’s very interesting, but the hardest part is reading all the stories,” she said. “It’s breathtaking.” The organization is collecting old boots at Fort Riley for future events through Envi-

ABILENE — A special program, “A Dynamic Duo: George C. Marshall and Dwight D. Eisenhower,” will be presented by Dan Holt, former director, Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum. The program is scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Visitors Center auditorium. Marshall was Chief of Staff of the Army during World War II, Secretary of State and the third Secretary of Defense. He was noted as the “organizer of victory” by Winston Churchill for his leadership of the Allied victory in WWII. Marshall also served as the chief military adviser to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. As Secretary of State, his name was given to the Marshall Plan, for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953. Holt will focus on the career of Marshall, particularly his term as Secretary of State. He will

also examine the long relationship of Marshall and Eisenhower and the critical career experiences of both men preparing them so well for WWII and, in Ike’s case, for the presidency. “It is amazing how closely aligned they were in personal philosophy, integrity, sense of duty and ability,” Holt said. “Certainly there were differences, but what one perceives as important in Marshall’s career development is also present in Eisenhower’s. Unfortunately, most people today do not remember, or know of, Marshall’s extraordinary service,” Holt added. In October 2008, Holt was appointed managing editor and project director of the papers of George C. Marshall at the George C. Marshall Library, Lexington,

Va. Volume six is to be published later this year and volume seven is expected to be completed in early 2015. Visitors are encouraged to park in the south parking lot near the Place of Meditation. The north parking lot at the Visitors Center will remain closed for repairs through Nov. 16.

Our view

Hoping for some cooperation

T

he most expensive general election in history has concluded. Regardless of whether the candidates for whom you voted won, there is reason to take heart in the results and the process. There is also much work to be done in the months and years ahead. For example: • Despite some predictions, there were few instances of voter fraud or irregularities. Votes were counted for the most part quickly and efficiently across the country. Even in New York and New Jersey, where people lost their homes to Hurricane Sandy, tents were set up to allow them to vote if they wished. Locally, more than 7,300 voters cast ballots in both early and Election Day voting. • Republican nominee Mitt Romney graciously conceded and President Obama extended a hand of bi-partisanship in his victory speech Tuesday night. Now it is up to both parties to actually make that happen. The first major challenge is the so-called fiscal cliff. At the end of the year, the payroll tax cuts end, as do the Bush tax cuts. In addition a number of large spending cuts in defense and Medicare go into effect unless Congress and the president agree on alternatives. Economists agree that these could plunge us back into recession. Keeping the tax cuts, enacting some spending cuts but also raising some taxes on the wealthy and closing some loopholes is the only sensible solution. Our hope is that this election will spur the spirit of cooperation needed for that to occur. • The Affordable Health Care Act, aka Obamacare, is going to take effect. The measure has been upheld by the Supreme Court. Democrats have actually strengthened control of the U.S. Senate and picked up a few more seats in the House. Thus it will not be repealed, and governors in states such as Kansas should stop fighting its implementation and work to help those who do not have insurance to get coverage, which after all is the goal of the act. Finally, we sincerely hope that Democrats and Republicans work together in a nonpartisan fashion in the next four years on the many serious issues that face this country, from the deficit to rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure, to putting people back to work. We congratulate those who won election, regardless of party affiliation, and thank all those who were willing to run for all offices up and down the ballot. We know that it takes courage to put one’s name out there and face possible rejection by the voters, and we thank you.

People have spoken

To the Editor:

A

s a teacher, I am careful not to express my political views to my students. Instead, I continuously urge them to be informed and to vote in every election in order to take advantage of a fundamental American right. To me, voting simply means good citizenship. I will allow healthy discussion of issues and candidates in my classes, but I remind my students that in the end, the winners are winners because the people have spoken. Our voting process may seem complicated at times, but it is a process we have followed for more than two centuries. On the morning of Nov. 7 we learned that the people in our country have spoken and now we must move on to solve the real problems of our country together. I teach my students to respectfully support those in our government, to speak out when it is necessary, and to be active in their communities. I also remind them that they have an opportunity every time there is an election to vote to support present policies or to change them. The process is as simple as walking into their polling place and casting their vote.

Hunting is a privilege B y John S chlageck

T

Kansas Farm Bureau

his weekend the hills, fields and woods will once again awaken to the sound of booming shotguns as hunters and their dogs swarm the countryside searching for pheasants, quail, ducks and other wildlife. It goes without saying that Kansas farms and ranches have always been a handy, ready-to-use outlet for many urban dwellers in search of recreational hunting. On opening day of the upland game season the interstate and U.S. highways will be a steady stream of pickups, SUVs and cars headed for central and western Kansas. If you’re one of these hunters who plan to hunt on private land, remember one key word when your thoughts turn toward hunting. This word is consideration. Translated, this word means thoughtful and sympathetic regard. In this country, wildlife belongs to the people, but landowners have the right to say who goes on their land. If you are interested in hunting, make arrangements before you hunt. Don’t wait until the day you plan to hunt someone’s land and then pound on their door at 6 a.m. Once you’ve secured permission, here are some suggestions to follow that will ensure a

lasting relationship between you and the landowner. Agree on who, and how many, will hunt on the land. Specify number and furnish names. Talk about specific times and dates you plan to hunt. Phone each and every time before you plan to hunt, and let the landowner know your intentions. The landowner may have forgotten about your original conversation. It’s just common courtesy to say hello before hunting and ask again for the opportunity – or privilege, as I consider it – to hunt on someone’s property. Determine exactly where on the land you have permission to hunt. Some areas may be off-limits because of livestock or crops. Always, and I can’t stress this enough, leave gates the way you find them. If they are open, leave them that way. If they are closed, shut them after you pass through. If you ever leave a gate open and a farmer’s cow herd gets out of the pasture, “Katie bar the door.” You’ll never be invited back to hunt. Once you’ve enjoyed a successful hunt, stop by to thank the landowner for his generosity. Offer to share the game you bag. After the season ends, write a note expressing your appreciation for the opportunity to hunt. You may also find

Locals truly have talent

To the Editor:

I

am often reminded of what a talented community I live in. I was at the Salina Symphony this last week and saw one of our talented neighbors in action. Sara Bernard Stevins is a gifted musician who calls Junction City home. She is a gifted musician, composter and conducter. Last week Sara was handed the baton as the guest conductor for the Salina Symphony. Her guidance of the musician was pure poetry. As she spread her elegant arms and directed the music, she also gave the audience a view of what was coming. I knew when the horns would enter, which section of violins were next and when Sara slowly closed the fingers of her hand, we all knew the music would stop. I have loved music and symphonies since I was a small child. Watching a great conductor is one of the pluses. Sara Bernard Stevens is one of those pluses and I am very proud that she is my neighbor. Thank you Sara.

deaths among teens 15 to 19 years old are up 91 percent in the past decade. And the vast majority of these deaths are because every day, 2,000 teens in this country are using prescription drugs for the first time for the sole purpose of getting high. The year 2009 marked the first year that, overall, more people in the United States died from drug overdoses than from automobile accidents. And this happened primarily because our nation is abusing prescription drugs at unprecedented levels. In fact more people abuse prescription drugs than the number of people who use cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin combined. Research has always shown that the most successful way to prevent drug overdose is to prevent drug use in the first place. To help parents find the resources they need to have ‘The Talk’

out what the landowner and his/her family enjoys eating or drinking and drop by later with a gift. Leasing of land by the hunter from the landowner is becoming more popular in Kansas. Such agreements allow hunters a guaranteed hunting site. It also provides the landowner income to recoup some of the investment he needs to leave habitat suitable for wildlife to survive and prosper. If you enter into such a lease, make sure it is written and includes all provisions both parties deem necessary. This should include a clause for the landowner and his or her family to hunt on the land. Remember that the hunter and landowner should always discuss the terms of the hunt before hunting begins. This is extremely important. And hunters, never forget you are a guest and it is a privilege to hunt on the owner’s land.

Tuesday headlines from around the world

Maine, Maryland vote to legalize gay marriage By David Crary

The Associated Press Voters a continent apart made history Tuesday on two divisive social issues, with Maine and Maryland becoming the first states to approve same-sex marriage by popular vote and Washington state legalizing recreational use of marijuana. The outcomes in Maine and Maryland broke a 32-state streak, dating back to 1998, in which gay marriage had been rebuffed by every state that voted on it. They will become the seventh and eighth states to legalize gay marriage. “For the first time, voters in Maine and Maryland voted to allow loving couples to make lifelong commitments through marriage — forever taking away the right-wing talking point that marriage equality couldn’t win on the ballot,” said Chad Griffin of the Human Rights Campaign, a national gayrights group. Washington state also was voting on a measure to legalize same-sex marriage, while Minnesota voters were considering a conservativebacked amendment that

would place a ban on samesex marriage in the state constitution. The outcomes could possibly influence the U.S. Supreme Court, which will soon be considering whether to take up cases challenging the law that denies federal recognition to same-sex marriages. The marijuana measure in Washington sets up a showdown with the federal government, which outlaws the drug. The measure establishes a system of state-licensed marijuana growers, processors and retail stores, where adults over 21 can buy up to an ounce. It also establishes a standard blood test limit for driving under the influence. The measure was notable for its sponsors and supporters, who ranged from public health experts and wealthy high-tech executives to two of the Justice Department’s top former officials in Seattle, U.S. Attorneys John McKay and Kate Pflaumer. “Marijuana policy reform remains an issue where the people lead and the politicians follow,” said Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance, which opposes the so-called “war on drugs.” “But Washington State shows that many politicians are beginning to catch up.” Estimates have showed pot

put her into the general election. Rothlisberg admitted Wednesday he wasn’t sure how many provisional ballots still needed to be counted. A provisional ballot is used to record a vote when there are questions regarding a given voter’s eligibility. But Ro t h l i s b e r g remained confident in the election night totals as he has all along. “It has been interesting going through this,” he said Wednesday in a phone call. “I feel pretty confident.” Rothlisberg said he also has already met and spoken with some leaders in Topeka to get a head start

campaign and for some time had not actively sought the position. Longbine garnered about 60 percent of the vote and talked about what he expected and had hoped for. The final vote tally was 12,590 to 7,992 in Longbine’s favor. Longbine said he expected a 65-35 percent difference. The senator’s 12,590 votes made up 61 percent of votes cast. “Overall, I am happy with the results,” he said. “It was pretty close to what I expected.” Longbine said it hasn’t been easy “walking into a new district,” which now includes Junction City and Geary County. “I have spent a tremendous amount of time in

taxes could bring in hundreds of millions of dollars a year, but the sales won’t start until state officials make rules to govern the legal weed industry. Similar measures were on the ballot in Colorado and Oregon. In Massachusetts, voters approved a measure to allow marijuana use for medical reasons, joining 17 other states. Arkansas voters were deciding on a similar measure that would make it the first Southern state in that group.

Police: California shooting suspect was ‘methodical’ By Gosia Wozniacka

ness, to start a new plant,” he said. Assistant city manager Cheryl Beatty said the $42,375 reduction in city revenue from the rebates and abatements would subtract from the debt service fund. She said that fund had a reserve “so these small bumps” could be smoothed out. She added the debt service fund is not dependent on one revenue source. But Taylor said he still was concerned with losing the revenue from Jupiter Kansas’s lease and property tax. He told Kragelund

Three women and a man, who did not speak to the media, hug together outside the police perimeter in central Fresno where a shooting occurred at a workplace Tuesday. A parolee who worked at a California chicken processing plant opened fire at the business on Tuesday, killing one person and wounding three others, before shooting himself, police said. moved methodically from victim to victim, placing his handgun against their head or neck and then pulling the trigger, authorities said. The unsuspecting victims worked just feet apart in the deboning room and the grinding room at Valley Protein, but they wore ear protectors and the gunshots were drowned out by the machinery. Jones tried to fire at a fifth person, police said, but

constituents also would raise concerns. “I have to hear, ‘There goes the commission throwing away our money again,’” Taylor said. “And we’ll hear it.” Vice mayor Jim Sands asked if city staff and Kragelund had approached the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce for assistance. He said the chamber has more resources available to struggling businesses than does the city, which is recovering from its own financial troubles.

on some preparation work. He said his first order of business will be to ensure continuation of the second student count in school districts. Rothlisberg said that is key to USD 475 with the number of students moving in and out of the district on a regular basis, mainly because of the Army. State funding of schools is based on enrollment. Rothlisberg said it is important to have consistent numbers so the district can properly plan and receive sufficient funding. Saxton was reluctant to comment further until the numbers are official and final. She said she may have more to say on Monday. Rothlisberg, 67, said there are many differenc-

es between him and Saxton, including his belief in the free market system, small government and equal opportunity, but not equal results. He said he doesn’t agree with the collective mindset. On Wednesday, Rothlisberg said he believed his opponent received a big swing from unaffiliated voters. Republican Mitt Romney earned more votes in Geary County than President Barack Obama by a count of 4,242-3,158. Saxton, 61, said she differed from Rothlisberg in that she believes in ethical campaigning, including filing reports on time and not giving false information about who can vote. She also believes that government is best when it operates in the spirit of

Geary County,” he said. “I was here twice this week and will be coming back Saturday for Junction Function.” He said he will continue to spend significant amounts of time in Junction City and make frequent visits. Longbine said he hopes to be involved in listening tours, eggs and issues types of events so his local constituents can voice their concerns to their representatives. He also said one of his first efforts will be to meet with the leadership of Fort Riley so he can “best represent the post and the military.” “I have met Gen. (Don) MacWillie and some others and hope to have the opportunity to sit down with them,” Longbine said. He called Fort Riley, education and transportation as the three top issues for the

Geary County area. “I am glad for the opportunity to serve and thankful the voters gave me that chance,” Longbine said. “I will work to prove that confidence is warranted.”

Democrats solid in GC

Longbine said it appeared as though people in Geary County and other counties in the district didn’t seem to know that Moran had stopped actively seeking the position. Longbine said he believes Moran, who also is from Emporia, received a lot of straight ticket votes and had strong name recognition. Longbine said the Kansas state senate will add a Democrat and added that it appeared to be a high turnout overall for Democrats in the state.

ran out of bullets. Following the shootings, Jones walked out of the building and unloaded the empty casings. He then reloaded, placed the gun against his head and fired. He was pronounced dead at a hospital a few hours later. Jones’ motive was unknown, but it was clear he had targeted his victims, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said. About 30 employees were working at the

“We’re hurting and you understand that,” Sands said. “Before you come to us, you have to see the chamber first.” But city manager Gerry Vernon said he had talked to chamber CEO Tom Weigand and Economic Development Commission chair Ben Kitchens about Jupiter Kansas’ situation. “What I got was, basically, this is a land lease between the city and Jupiter,” Vernon said. “They didn’t want any part of it.” After a lengthy discussion about

cooperation and compromise and she would work to mitigate differences in Topeka. She was quick to thank her supporters. “I am grateful to my supporters,” she wrote in an email to the Daily Union. “I especially want to thank my husband, Jay, who walked all those miles of houses with me and never once let me down. We had support from across the state and I will send personal thank yous to everyone again this week.” The race was close from the start. At about 10 p.m., the

plant during the shooting. “He had opportunity to shoot other co-workers that were in the business at this time, but he chose not to,” Dyer said. “He walked around them in order to get very close to the intended targets, place the gun very close and fire a round.” Some workers told police Jones did not appear to be himself when he arrived for his shift. “We are still trying to follow up on some rumors regarding a dispute between Jones and one of the other co-workers, but we have not been able to verify it at this point,” Dyer said. Jones, who had worked at the plant for 14 months, had an extensive criminal history, authorities said. In 1994, he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for robbery, then released on parole in 2001, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Jones also served time for robbery and later for vehicle theft and other convictions, and was paroled from prison on June 1, 2011, department spokesman Luis Patino said. Jones was discharged from parole on May 1, 2012, Patino said. “He was reviewed and he had not had any violations and so he was discharged from parole,” Patino said.

possible adjustments to the agreement proposed by city staff, city attorney Katie Logan said the decision may need to be postponed. “I think that’s the best approach, rather than sitting here and negotiating it,” she told commissioners. “(Jupiter Kansas) are the ones who need to make a proposal and you’ll either vote it up or down.” Commissioners decided to table the discussion. Kragelund said he would send his business forecasts to Vernon to review before future discussions are held.

numbers showed Rothlisberg held a 942-837 advantage. By 11:25 p.m., the numbers kept Rothlisberg in the lead at 1,546-1,328. About 20 minutes later, the gap closed with Rothlisberg still leading 2,0291,966. At the end of the night, about 2:30 a.m., the unofficial count from the Geary County election office was Rothlisberg over Saxton by about 1.5 percent at 2,066-1,999. Saxton said it was a long night and she headed to bed at about 1 a.m. Rothlisberg said he was awake for the final election night tally.

are rolling and crowds gathered. However, what are we like when our guard is down and have nothing to gain? In those moments how often do we express “thank you” to our parents, children, coworkers, friends or classmates? Thankfulness is a character issue. It is about humility. When we say “thank you,” we lower ourselves and elevate another. And when we do that, we are giving people a sense of dignity. We are honoring their act of service toward us, no matter how insignificant or routine we may consider it to be. Secondly, it is about awareness. In order to give a “thank you,” it requires that we shift the focus from our own world to someone

Special to The Daily Union CLAY CENTER — Early in our marriage while eating a dinner Kathe had prepared, I said, “Thanks for dinner, honey.” She responded a little surprised so I followed up with, “You have taken the time to put it together and it tasted great so I think you deserve a thanks.” One of the easiest ways to celebrate Thanksgiving is by sharing a simple “thank you” with someone who has served us. On the public platform, our culture seems to do fine with this. It is normal for celebrities and politicians to express thanks while the cameras

else’s. It is where we hit the pause button in our busyness for a moment and acknowledge what someone has done on our behalf. It is a simple act of courtesy that is polite and the mark of a true gentleman or lady. The life-altering effect of Jesus’ suffering, death, burial and rising again from the dead is dependent on our attitude toward thankfulness. It takes a sense of awareness to realize that Jesus did all this for you and the people of the world. Awareness is required to realize it was done because you are a sinner and need a savior. And after you are aware of this, it takes humility to say “thank you” for all he did. And in that moment, life change happens because you

have lowered yourself and exalted Jesus in your heart. The Bible says, “Oh, give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name” (1 Chronicles 16:8). May God help us to be a thankful people that our souls might be altered forever. May parents, church leaders and employers model humility and awareness that Christ may be our hope for today.

IRS not enforcing rules on churches and politics B y R achel Z oll

The Associated Press NEW YORK — For the past three years, the Internal Revenue Service hasn’t been investigating complaints of partisan political activity by churches, leaving religious groups who make direct or thinly veiled endorsements of political candidates unchallenged. The IRS monitors religious and other nonprofits on everything from salaries to spending, and that oversight continues. However, Russell Renwicks, a manager in the IRS Mid-Atlantic region, recently said the agency had suspended audits of churches suspected of breaching federal restrictions on political activity. A 2009 federal court ruling required the IRS to clarify which high-ranking official could authorize audits over the tax code’s political rules. The IRS has yet to do so. Dean Patterson, an IRS spokesman in Washington, said Renwicks, who examines large tax-exempt groups, “misspoke.” Patterson would not provide any specifics beyond saying that “the IRS continues to run a balanced program that follows up on potential noncompliance.” However, attorneys who specialize in tax law for religious groups, as well as advocacy groups who monitor the cases, say they know of no IRS inquiries in the past three years into claims of partisanship by houses of worship. IRS church audits are confidential, but usually become public as the targeted religious groups fight to maintain their nonprofit status. “The impression created is that no one is minding the store,” said Melissa Rogers, a legal scholar and director of the Center for Religion and

Public Affairs at Wake Forest University Divinity School in North Carolina. “When there’s an impression the IRS is not enforcing the restriction — that seems to embolden some to cross the line.” The issue is closely watched by a cadre of attorneys and former IRS officials who specialize in tax-exempt law, along with watchdog groups on competing sides of the church-state debate. Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which seeks strict limits on religious involvement in politics, and the Alliance Defending Freedom, which considers the regulations unconstitutional government intrusion, scour the political landscape for any potential cases. While Americans United gathers evidence it hopes will prompt an IRS investigation, the Alliance Defending Freedom

jumps in to provide a defense. Neither group knows of any IRS contact with houses of worship over political activity since the 2009 federal ruling. Nicholas Cafardi, a Duquesne University Law School professor and Roman Catholic canon lawyer who specializes in tax-exempt law, said he has heard of no IRS inquiries over churches and politics in the last three years. Neither has Marcus Owens, a Washington attorney who spent a decade as head of the IRS tax-exempt division and is now in private practice. Owens, who was with the IRS through 2000, said the agency had once initiated between 20 and 30 inquiries each year concerning political activity by churches or pastors. He said he knows of only two recent cases the IRS pursued against houses of worship or pastors, and nei-

ther involved complaints over partisan activity. “What the IRS is desperate to do is to avoid signaling to churches and pastors that there is no administrative oversight,” Owens said. “The IRS has been vigilant with regard to civil fraud and criminal cases, but those aren’t all that common.” The tax code allows a wide range of political activity by houses of worship, including speaking out on social issues and organizing congregants to vote. But churches cannot endorse a candidate or engage in partisan advocacy. The presidential election has seen a series of statements by clergy that critics say amount to political endorsements. Religious leaders say they are speaking about public policies, not candidates, and have every right to do so. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has recent-

ly taken out full-page ads in major newspapers, featuring a photo of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, urging Americans to vote along biblical principles. Graham met last month with Mitt Romney and pledged to do “all I can” to help the Republican presidential nominee. In a survey last week by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, 40 percent of black Protestants who attend worship services regularly said their clergy have discussed a specific candidate in church — and the candidate in every instance was President Barack Obama. This Sunday, Roman Catholic Bishop Daniel Jenky of

Peoria, Ill., ordered all the priests in his diocese to read a statement urging Catholics to vote and stating that, “Catholic politicians, bureaucrats, and their electoral supporters who callously enable the destruction of innocent human life in the womb also thereby reject Jesus as their Lord.” In Texas, a pastor of a small independent church posted a sign on the front of the building that read, “Vote for the Mormon, not the Muslim.” Romney is the first Mormon nominee for president by a major party. Opponents of Obama, who is Christian, have spread false rumors that he is Muslim.

Re-elected, Obama heads back to divided government By David Espo

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — One day after a bruising, mixed-verdict election, President Barack Obama and Republican House Speaker John Boehner both pledged Wednesday to seek a compromise to avert looming spending cuts and tax increases that threaten to plunge the economy back into recession. Added Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.: “Of course” an agreement is possible. While all three men spoke in general terms, Boehner stressed that Republicans would be willing to accept higher tax revenue under the right conditions as part of a more sweeping attempt to reduce deficits and restore the economy to full health. While the impending “fiscal cliff” dominates the postelection agenda, the president and Republicans have other concerns, too. Obama is looking ahead to toplevel personnel changes in a second term, involving three powerful Cabinet portfolios at a minimum. And Republicans are heading into a season of potentially painful reflection after losing the presidency in an economy that might have proved Obama’s political undoing. They also have fallen deeper into the Senate minority after the second election in a row in which they lost potentially winnable races by fielding candidates with views that voters evidently judged too extreme. One major topic for GOP discussion: the changing face of America. “We’ve got to deal with the issue of immigration through good policy. What is the right policy if we want economic growth in America as it relates to immigration?” said former Republican Party Chairman Haley Barbour. Obama drew support from about 70 percent of all Hispanics. That far outpaced Romney, who said during the Republican primaries that illegal immigrants should self-deport, then spent the general election campaign trying to move toward the political middle on the issue. The maneuvering on the economy — the dominant issue by far in the campaign — began even before Obama returned to the White House from his home town of Chicago. After securing a second term, the president is committed to bipartisan solutions “to reduce our deficit in a balanced way, cut taxes for middle class families and small businesses and create jobs,” and he told congressional leaders as much in phone calls, the White House said. Boehner, whose anti-tax Republi-

Obama defeated Republican challenger former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. cans renewed their House majority on Tuesday, said GOP legislators were “willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions.” That means tax reform and economic growth rather than raising rates, he emphasized, and accompanying steps to rein in the government’s big benefit programs. “The question we should be asking is not ‘which taxes should I raise to get more revenue, but rather: which reforms can we agree on that will get our economy moving again?” the Ohio Republican said at the Capitol. While both the president and Boehner sent signals of bipartisanship, there remain wide differences between the two on specifics. At the same time, each man has something of a postelection mandate, given Obama’s re-election and the Republicans’ successful defense of their House majority. The reference to a balanced approach to deficit reduction reflected Obama’s campaign-long call for

higher taxes on incomes above $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples. That was something Boehner made plain he opposes. Reid told reporters that any solution should include higher taxes on “the richest of the rich.” That was in keeping with Obama’s election platform, which calls for the expiration of tax cuts on higher-income earners. Barring legislation to avoid the “fiscal cliff” by year’s end, taxes are on course to rise by more than $500 billion in 2013, and spending is to be cut by an additional $130 billion or so, totals that would increase over a decade. The blend is designed to rein in the federal debt, but officials in both parties warn it poses a grave threat to an economic recovery that has been halting at best. Obama and congressional leaders in both parties say they want an alternative, but serious compromise talks were non-existent during the fierce campaign season.

GOP asks ‘Why?’ and ‘Where do we go from here?’

The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Having lost the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections, Republicans plunged Wednesday into an intense period of self-examination, blame-setting and testy debate over whether their party needs serious change or just some minor tweaks. The fallout will help determine whether the GOP might return to heights approximating the Ronald Reagan years or, as some fear, suffer even deeper losses as the nation’s Democratic-leaning Hispanics increase in number. “The party is clearly in some sort of identity crisis,” said Rick Tyler, a past aide to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Hard-core conservatives, furious at President Barack Obama’s re-election in the face of a weak economy, called for a wholesale shift to resolutely right positions on social and fiscal matters. Some demanded that party leaders resign. Establishment Republicans largely shrugged off the tirades. But they split into two main camps themselves, portending potentially lengthy soul-searching, especially in Congress. One group calls for calm and a steady course. It emphasizes that the party still controls the House, and notes that Obama’s popularvote margin was smaller than in 2008. “The Republican Party is exactly right on the issues,” said Terry Holt, a veteran GOP strategist with close ties to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. The party mainly needs to nominate candidates who can relate to average Americans better than multimillionaire Mitt Romney did, Holt said. Some other Republicans, however, see bigger problems. The party must shed

its “absolutism on issues like tax increases,” which congressional lawmakers oppose at virtually every level, said John Ullyot, a former Republican Senate aide. “The only way the party is going to move more to the middle is when we get sick of losing,” he said. That’s essentially what Democrats did in the 1990s. Demoralized after big losses by presidential nominees Walter Mondale and Michael Dukakis — and still mindful of George McGovern’s 1972 disaster — Democrats turned to a centrist Arkansas governor, Bill Clinton. He won two elections, repositioned the party and served as Obama’s top surrogate this fall. Some activists in both parties say Republicans eventually must follow suit to survive. But their primaries are dominated by staunch opponents of tax hikes, abortion, immigration reform and government regulations. Until and unless that changes, a shift toward the center may be impossible. “It’s harder for the Republicans, because they are more ideological than Democrats,” said Democratic strategist Doug Hattaway. “The religious fervor of the Republican base makes it hard to change or compromise, even though that’s what’s needed to remain viable as a party.” While Holt and others say the Republican Party is aligned with most Americans on big issues, Tuesday’s exit polls raise doubts in some areas. Six in 10 voters said abortion should be legal in all or most cases, the highest share saying so since the mid-1990s. Two-thirds of voters said illegal immigrants working in the United States should be offered a chance to apply for legal status. Nearly half of all voters supported Obama’s plan to raise taxes on couples’ incomes above $250,000. Thirteen percent said taxes should be increased on all

Americans, and 35 percent said no one should pay higher taxes. Boehner and Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell will stand at the center of the intra-party debate. Within days they must decide how to negotiate with Obama and Democratic lawmakers on the looming “fiscal cliff,” a package of major tax hikes and spending cuts scheduled for the new year. McConnell issued a defiant statement Wednesday. “The voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the president’s first term,” he said. “They have simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do together with a Congress that restored balance to Washington.” Boehner was more conciliatory in tone when he addressed reporters Wednesday. But he recommended Romney’s tax package — including rate cuts for everyone and the elimination of yet-to-be-named deductions — which he said would create a net increase in government revenue. Obama has insisted that the wealthiest Americans pay higher tax rates, as they did under Clinton. Many Democrats in Congress agree. Republican insiders, meanwhile, nervously focused on an approaching problem that could produce even bigger presidential losses in future years. The GOP relies overwhelmingly on white voters, a steadily shrinking share of the population. Hispanics, the nation’s fastest-growing group, have bristled at Republican attacks on illegal immigration, which some people consider a slap at all Latinos, legal or not. Republican campaign pros said the party must find a way to temper the talk about immigration without infuriating conservatives who oppose “amnesty” for those who entered the country illegally.

That ended Tuesday in an election in which more than 119 million votes were cast, mostly without controversy despite dire predictions of politically charged recounts and lawsuits while the presidency hung in the balance. Obama won the popular vote narrowly, the electoral vote comfortably, and the battleground states where the campaign was principally waged in a landslide. The president carried seven of the nine states where he, Romney and their allies spent nearly $1 billion on television commercials, winning Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, Colorado and Virginia. The Republican challenger won North Carolina, and Florida remained too close to call Obama also turned back late moves by Republicans in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Minnesota. Hispanics account for a larger share of the population than the national average in Nevada and Col-

orado, two of the closely contested battleground states. The president’s outsized majority among Hispanics — in the range of 70 percent according to Election Day interviews with voters — helped him against a challenger who called earlier in the year for self-deportation of illegal immigrants. Other factors in crucial states: — In Ohio, roughly 60 percent of all voters said they favored the Obama administration’s auto bailout, and the president captured nearly three quarters of their votes, according to the survey, conducted for The Associated Press and a group of television networks. He stressed the rescue operation throughout the campaign. Romney opposed it, and in late campaign commercials suggested it had contributed to the loss of U.S. jobs overseas. — In Virginia, the black vote was roughly half again as big in percentage terms as nationally, also an aid to Obama.

Ladies Reading Club’s Fall Festival will be Nov. 17. In preparations, shown are (from left) Ligia Paquette, past president; Andrea Mace, president; and Inge Levinson on the doorstep of the Ladies Reading Club, Third and Jefferson streets, where the annual Fall Festival is scheduled. They are each wearing one of the aprons that will be sold that day, along with the club’s signature half pecans.

JC Ladies Reading Club promotes pecan sale

Special to The Daily Union The Junction City Ladies Reading Club has its signature pecans available for your holiday baking. Advance sales of the pecans at $10 per bag have already begun, but they will also be sold at the annual Fall Festival (formerly Flaming Festival) Nov. 17 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the clubhouse at Third and Jefferson Streets. Those wishing to purchase pecans prior to the festival may call Inge Levinson at 238-4081. Levinson was the Flaming Festival chair for 40 years and said the sale of the pecans has a long history in Junction City, dating back to before she was even involved. “The pecans are a big money-maker and it’s something that people use,” she said.

Through the years, the pecans have been one aspect of the club’s annual event that has remained constant while other parts have changed. The name, for example, was originally the Flaming Festival because of one of the big sellers were candles, but it’s been a long time since the candles were a popular selling item. One of the newer items that is quickly becoming a tradition is the sale of aprons. Skillfully crafted by Charlotte Grelk and Marilyn Stephen, the aprons come in a wide variety of colors and patterns and all have big pockets in the front — very important for the busy cook. Mainstays of the event that will be back this year are the popular gift boutique with handmade items and the baked goods table that will have many

items, much of which can be frozen for use during the holidays. Come early and enjoy a roll and a cup of coffee in the morning or come by to savor a homemade soup and sandwich lunch buffet. The Ladies Reading Club is the oldest affiliate of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs in the state of Kansas. The proceeds from the festival will be used for the upkeep and maintenance of the clubhouse, which is the oldest still in operation west of the Mississippi River. For more information about the Flaming Festival or the Ladies Reading Club, contact Ellen Westerhaus at 238-7409.

Hicks Continued from Page 1A

The current election night tally stands at 1,1191,113 in favor of Hicks. According to the Geary County Clerk’s office, there are 563 provisional ballots that will be determined on Monday when the Board of Canvassers meets. “There’s nothing to do than to sit back and wait for the final vote,” Watson said. “I am hopeful by virtue of what has taken shape that everybody really believes — more than they did yesterday — that their vote is important and it does make a difference,” Hicks said. It is unknown how many of those provisional ballots are from voters in District Two and how many will actually be counted. A provisional ballot is used to record a vote when there are questions regarding a given voter’s eligibility. “It could be zero or all of them,” Watson said. “At this point, we have no idea.” That’s why he said worrying or focusing on it “doesn’t do any good.” Hicks said he was thankful for those who came out to “engage in our political process.” “They selected and voted for the people who they believe best represented their ideas,” Hicks said. Watson said he believed there was a high Democrat turnout, which included heavy Democrat advanced voting, and fully expected early numbers to lean toward Hicks.

Hicks said he has been fortunate to be “part of a governing body that I think has done tremendous things in the way of improving quality of life issues in Geary County,” Hicks said. “I’m very optimistic that the future is going to be extremely bright for this county and the people who live within it.” The race between the two friends was the closest local election battle of Tuesday night. Hicks, 63, has been the commissioner for four years, and has said roads and bridges are in constant need of improving and the funding has to occur early in the budget process. Watson, 64, talked about unfunded mandates, having skills and vision to cooperate and compromise. He also said roads and bridges are a high priority and need attention. The early returns favored Hicks as he took a 316-193 lead, but as the evening wore on, the numbers shifted to Watson. At 10:40 p.m., Watson was in the lead 742-537. At 11:25 p.m., Watson still led 1,044-1,013. But a late push by Hicks gave him a narrow 11-vote lead at about 11:40 p.m. Candidates waited for more that two hours before the final results were revealed, which gave Hicks the election night victory with a count of 1,119-1,113 total. “That’s just the way it goes,” Watson said about the tallies. But the close numbers also make it more difficult, Watson said. “When you are six votes shorts, you rethink what you did,” Watson said.

“I feel really good about it and I feel like I’ve done a good job,” Whitebread said Tuesday night. “People are pleased with what I’ve done, so I’m ready to go for another four years.” The current chair of the Geary County Commission received 1,131 votes and Patterson received 566. Whitebread is involved with many organizations. Some of them include the First Baptist Church, Geary County Historical Society, and the

“You think about if you could have done this more, run more newspaper ads or radio or make some stops one more time in this neighborhood rather than that one.” But that’s just hindsight, he said, and added he is pleased with everything he did in his effort to be elected. “I appreciate all those who supported me and worked hard,” he said. “I don’t think I could have done any better. It’s easier to be able to say that it’s done now.” Hicks had some nice words for Watson and his supporters. “Obviously, there are a number of people who felt my opponent was someone who could also be a good representative,” Hicks said. “Given the fact that he had 30-plus years of public service experience, there were certainly votes for him.” Despite being the incumbent, Hicks said he never takes anyone for granted in their ability to win an election or serve. “I’m only concentrating on making certain that I try to reach out to as many people as I can and give them a complete picture of what I’ve been a part of in terms of accomplishments for Geary County.” Hicks said he just would like to continue to be part of the commission, but was quick to state, win or lose, he will still be involved. “If not, I’ll still be part of it in some way, shape, form or fashion,” he said if the numbers don’t come out his way.

She previously discussed the importance of improving transportation in the Geary County area. “I’ve really worked hard for the public transportation system in our area and I want to continue with that,” Whitebread said. She said the county is also going have to keep watch on taxes and the budget. Patterson refused to comment Tuesday. Whitebread is married to her husband Don. Together they have three children, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

but we made it. I just want to tell everyone thank you so much for all the support and all the help. It means more to me than they will ever know.” Wolf has said he does not plan to reinvent the wheel while serving as sheriff. “The framework of the department is strong,” he stated in a questionnaire published by The Daily Union. “I want to build upon it, not tear it down and start over.” Wolf stated current sheriff Jim Jensen, who is retirng, “has done a good job over the years, and I want to continue that path.” Jensen supported Wolf in the election. Both Wolf and Ricks currently are employed by the sheriff’s department.

Sam Brownback was in Junction City for the event Wednesday and said it’s going to be a nice facility with a multiple set of uses for the programs. “We need more people technically trained,” Brownback said in an interview after the ceremony. “In our future, 60 percent of the jobs will require a technical skill to get it. This will give somebody a technical skill that is in an area that’s a growth industry for the state.” Brownback was pleased to see the partnership of it and the speed in which CCCC brought the program to fruition. “I would really like to congratulate you on the forward looking, quick reaction time that government entities are not known for and being able to get that done,” Brownback said during his speech. “So much of the time, it seems like

Wolf has maintained the process is too expensive. Both wanted to improve neighborhood watch programs. Wolf stated in the survey he will work to implement a program that teaches citizens to be good witnesses. “This is an educational talk that can be given to residents within the community that

explains what information we as law enforcement need from you, the reporting party,” he stated. “This can and will be part of an effort to revive the neighborhood watch program. We don’t need fancy names or fancy websites for this program — just the community’s willingness to be involved.” Other programs Wolf hopes to start would combat cybercrimes and form a drug interdiction team. “Computer crimes are the fastest growing crimes in the nation,” he stated. “I want to be more capable to combat these crimes by pooling our resources, which will be more cost effective.” As for the drug trade, Wolf stated he will continue to target I-70. “Interstate 70 is a pipeline of drugs and money,” he stated. “As you have heard over the years, we have successfully intercepted large quantities of drugs and cash. These stops have taken drugs and criminals off the streets and has allowed the department to use the criminals’ money and assets against them.”

governments take years to be able to make a move in a society that moves on seconds and minutes. And we can’t take years any more to make moves. We got to do these much more quickly and efficiently and we got to hit the marketplace of what people need, and that’s what you’re doing with this.” He also discussed the plan for National Bio- and AgroDefense Facility and opportunities for graduates to increase. Cathy Castle, Agri-Biotechnology instructor, said the program will teach students skills they need to survive in the workforce and to do well in the program. “They will leave here well trained and able to function in a lab and do well and be an asset to their employer in the future,” Castle said. During his remarks, Larry Henry, vice-chair of the CCCC Board of Trustees, said it was a great day for higher education

and also commended the county commissioners. “This building would not be possible without the tremendous partnership of Geary County Commissioners,” Henry said. Florence Whitebread, Geary County Commission Chair, made remarks during the ceremony, as well. “Our children really are our future and this building is for them,” Whitebread said. “Education is for a lifetime and it’s something no one can take away from you.” Brenda Edleston, dean of the Geary County Campus, talked about the groundbreaking in May and the October move-in date. “We’re here today to applaud the efforts of the individuals and the teams who worked diligently to create this beautiful facility,” Edleston said.

New Orleans new site of Big 12/SEC Sugar Bowl

Chargers fined $20K for sticky towel case

The NFL has fined the San Diego Chargers $20,000 because it said a member of the equipment staff failed to immediately surrender towels when ordered to do so by a game official against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 15. The NFL also said in a statement Wednesday that after investigating the Chargers’ use of towels that included an adhesive substance, it was determined that San Diego did not violate any rules. After consulting with the Competition Committee, the league said it has advised all clubs that the use of towels or other products that contain any type of adhesive substance is prohibited on game days until further notice.

Suspended GM back to work

Having served his eight-game suspension in connection with the NFL’s bounty probe of the New Orleans Saints, general manager Mickey Loomis returned to work at team headquarters in time to deal with a variety of unsettled personnel issues and off-the-field distractions. His immediate tasks include clearing up the status of Sean Payton’s five-year contract extension, which NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has so far refused to approve since the coach signed it in 2011. Loomis also will have to oversee contingency plans in the event defensive end Will Smith and linebacker Jonathan Vilma have to serve their own bounty suspensions, which so far have been delayed.

Stealers Brown out for Monday

The Pittsburgh Steelers will likely be without leading receiver Antonio Brown next Monday night when they host the Kansas City Chiefs. Brown sprained his right ankle in last Sunday’s 24-20 victory over the New York Giants. Coach Mike Tomlin called Brown’s status “very much in doubt.” Brown leads the Steelers with 42 receptions and is second on the team with 499 receiving yards.

League considering wider expansion of instant replay

Baseball is considering a broader expansion of video review for umpires than first discussed. Instant replay in baseball began in August 2008 and has been limited to checking whether potential home runs were fair or cleared over fences. Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig has been saying since early 2011 he wants to expand it to two additional types of calls. “He was talking about really basically fair-foul, trap plays. But we’re looking into more than that,” Joe Torre, MLB’s executive vice president for baseball operations, said Wednesday at the general managers’ meetings. MLB experimented with the Hawk-Eye animation system and the TrackMan radar software during tests late this year at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field.

Snyder hopeful Klein can Chiefs’ Quinn start for No. 3 K-state admits playing with concussion B y D ave S kretta

The Associated Press

MANHATTAN — Bill Snyder has always been secretive when it comes to discussing injuries. Or just about anything else in his program. The longtime coach at Kansas State said Tuesday he expects Heisman Trophy frontrunner Collin Klein will be able to start the third-ranked Wildcats’ game at TCU this weekend, but he once again refused — politely, of course — to discuss anything specific to his star quarterback’s injury. The nature of it, the severity of it, the process by which Klein would be cleared to play — even the timetable involved in making that decision, which must happen soon. “Let’s cut to the chase,” Snyder said. “Would I expect him to play? I certainly hope that’s the case, and I would expect that to take place.” Klein was hurt in the third quarter of last Saturday’s 44-30 victory over Oklahoma State, likely on one of three straight runs that resulted in his 50th career rushing touchdown. He remained on the ground an extra moment after a sneak finished off the drive, and then jogged over to the sideline. Klein spoke for several minutes with trainers on the bench, and then his helmet was taken away and he spent the rest of the game watching from the sideline. All of those signs are indicative of a head injury, which has taken on increased scrutiny across the football landscape, from the professional level all the way down to youths — and is another reason why Snyder was reticent to discuss the details of Klein’s injury. “My interest in our players is beyond football, and I always want to do the right

That’s why I don’t address injuries.” Sure, the secrecy may give Kansas State a competitive advantage against the Horned Frogs, who will also have to spend time preparing for backup quarterback Daniel Sams. But the sagely Snyder truly believes that it’s in the best interest of Klein to keep him out of the spotlight, which is why the senior wasn’t available to the media on Tuesday.

“Collin was perfectly comfortable coming here and visiting, and I wanted to not put him through that,” Snyder said, “because I know the bombardment he would have had to endure.” Klein already had put together another big performance before leaving last Saturday’s game, throwing for 245 yards and running for 64.

Former Texas coach Royal dies at 88

By Jim Vertuno

The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas — A son of Depression-era Oklahoma, Darrell Royal came to Texas to take over a sleeping giant of a football program. Over 20 years, his folksy approach to sports and life, his inventive wishbone offense and a victory in the “Game of the Century” — where a U.S. president declared his team national champion — made him an icon of college football. Royal, who won two national championships and turned the Longhorns into a national power, died early Wednesday at age 88 of complications from cardiovascular disease, school spokesman Bill Little said. Royal also suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. Royal didn’t have a single losing season in his 23 years as a head coach at Texas, Mississippi State and Washington. Known for their stout defenses and punishing running attacks, his Texas teams boasted a 167-47-5 record from

1957-1976, the best mark in the nation over that period. “It was fun,” Royal told The Associated Press in 2007. “All the days I was coaching at Texas, I knew this would be my last coaching job. I knew it when I got here.” It almost didn’t happen. Royal wasn’t Texas’ first choice. Texas was coming off a 1-9 season in 1956 — still the worst in program history — and wanted a high-profile coach to turn things around. The Longhorns were rebuffed by Georgia Tech’s Bobby Dodd and Michigan State’s Duffy Daugherty, but both coaches encouraged Texas to hire the 32-year-old Royal, who was lying in bed the night he got the call summoning him to Austin. “Edith, this is it, this is the University of Texas,” Royal told his wife. Royal led the Longhorns to a 6-3-1 record in his first season, but he was so sickened by Mississippi’s 39-7 thrashing of his team in the Sugar Bowl that he gave away the commemorative bowl

watch he received. Under Royal, Texas won 11 Southwest Conference titles, 10 Cotton Bowl championships and national championships in 1963 and 1969, going 11-0 each time. The Longhorns also won a share of the 1970 national title, earning him a national stature that rivaled that of Alabama’s Paul “Bear” Bryant and Ohio State’s Woody Hayes. Royal was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983. A public memorial ceremony is scheduled for noon Tuesday at the Frank Erwin Center basketball arena. Royal will be buried at the Texas State Cemetery in Austin, an honor typically reserved for the state’s military and political leaders. On Saturday, the Longhorns will honor Royal at their home game against Iowa State by wearing “DKR” stickers on their helmets and by lining up in the wishbone formation, which Royal used to such great success, for their first offensive snap. “Today is a very sad day. I lost a

wonderful friend, a mentor, a confidant and my hero. College football lost maybe its best ever and the world lost a great man,” current Texas coach Mack Brown said Wednesday. “His counsel and friendship meant a lot to me before I came to Texas, but it’s been my guiding light for my 15 years here.” As a player at Oklahoma, Royal was a standout quarterback, defensive back and punter, and he credited hard work and luck for his success on the field and later as a coach. He had a self-deprecating style and a knack for delivering pithy quotes — or “Royalisms” — about his team and opponents. “Football doesn’t build character, it eliminates the weak ones,” was one of Royal’s famous lines. “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity,” was another. “He was a guy who was so strong and so determined and so direct about things,” said former Texas quarterback James Street.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Wednesday headlines from the world of sports No. 7 Jayhawks ease by Washburn 62-50 in tuneup By Dave Skretta

The Associated Press LAWRENCE — The hallmark of Kansas last season was its ability to win ugly. The Jayhawks would scrap for loose balls, throw a couple elbows under the basket to grab a rebound, clamp down like a vise-grip on opposing offenses and somehow get out in transition enough to put together the kind of game-changing runs that it takes to win games in March. Already, it looks like this season’s team will be no different. Ben McLemore had 17 points and 10 rebounds, Elijah Johnson added 13 points and the seventhranked Jayhawks overcame 24 turnovers in a 62-50 exhibition victory over Division II Washburn on Monday night. “There’s going to be nights we don’t play good. We can still win if we play defense and rebound,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “It’s a good lesson you can still win ugly. If last year’s team didn’t win ugly, we would have won 20 games instead of 32.” Kansas will try to pretty up its performance on Friday night, when it opens the regular season against Southeast Missouri State, and certainly before a Nov. 13 date with No. 14 Michigan State as part of the

Champions Classic in Atlanta. “We’ve got to learn something from this. Today could be wasted if you don’t learn something from it,” Johnson said. “Today I think we learned that you have to win ugly sometimes.” Despite returning three starters from the team that pushed Kentucky to the limit in last season’s national championship game, the Jayhawks have appeared ragged and unpolished through their first two exhibition games against small, in-state schools Emporia State and Washburn. They needed a 19-1 run to help put away the Hornets last week, and then used a 16-3 run early Monday night before coaxing the game toward its messy conclusion. “Everybody’s thinking too much. There’s too many people trying too hard and not just playing,” Johnson said. “Everybody is making it too complex, and it’s just confusing each other, rather than just rolling with the rhythm and hopping on the same train, building on each play.” McLemore, who sat out last season as a partial NCAA qualifier, was one of the few players who managed to produce on offense. He combined with Johnson and freshman Perry Ellis to score 29 of the Jayhawks’

Still, even McLemore gave Self plenty of teachable moments. One of them came early in the second half, when he gathered in the ball on the wing. With only one smaller defender in his way to the basket, McLemore opted to take a midrange jumper rather than go to the rim, leaving Self to

scream halfway across the court for him to attack. Self wound up calling three timeouts in the first 10 minutes of the second half. “We weren’t executing as well as the first game,” Ellis said. “I mean, we weren’t pushing it as good as the first game. That’s the main thing, I feel. We just weren’t pushing it.” These are the kind of growing pains that Kansas

will no doubt experience through the first part of the season, though. Despite being picked to win their ninth consecutive Big 12 title, the reality is they have nine freshmen on the roster, seven of whom could contribute. How steep has the learning curve been at Kansas? Even the courtside announcer is trying to settle into pronouncing the newcomers’ names, half

the time calling Anrio Adams with his full name and half the time shortening the freshman guard’s first name to simply Rio. Seven-footer Jeff Withey, one of the nation’s premier post defenders, struggled again to get on track. He only had seven points and six rebounds against Emporia State, and had nine points and eight rebounds against the Ichabods, even though he had a massive size advantage in the paint. Will McNeill scored 13 points to lead Washburn, a school from Topeka, Kan., that went 25-8 last season and was voted No. 2 in the NABC Division II preseason poll. “I said at halftime that if we could stop this team from going on a run, we can get in this game,” said McNeill, the biggest reason the Ichabods were within 53-42 with about 5 minutes left. That’s when Withey scored inside, and then made a block at the other to trigger a fastbreak, which Releford finished with a three-point play for a 58-42 lead. Johnson added a 3 moments later to deliver the knockout blow. “Kansas is going to be great,” Washburn coach Bob Chipman said, before adding: “Man, if we play really hard, we’re capable of some great things.”

Penn State ex-Pres. Westbrook leads Thunder in 108-88 win heads to court By Bobby Anderson

The Associated Press

By Mark Scolforo

The Associated Press HARRISBURG, Pa. — The criminal case begins against Graham Spanier, the former Penn State president accused of lying during the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case and trying to derail the investigation. A district judge in suburban Harrisburg was scheduled to arraign Spanier and set bail on Wednesday, a proceeding that took less than 10 minutes last week for his two co-defendants. Spanier, 64, was charged last week with perjury, obstruction, endangering the welfare of children, failure to properly report suspected abuse and conspiracy for his actions in response to complaints about Jerry Sandusky showering with children. Spanier denies the allegations and has claimed he is being framed for political purposes. He served as Penn State’s president for 16 years but was forced out a year ago after Sandusky was charged along with two of Spanier’s top underlings. Spanier is on paid leave as a member of the faculty. Along with the charges against Spanier, prosecutors added counts against Tim Curley and Gary Schultz. They were arraigned Thursday. Curley, the athletic director on leave, and Schultz, the school’s retired vice president, await trial in January on charges of failure to report suspected abuse and perjury. The new charges came almost exactly a year after details of the case against Sandusky sent a maelstrom through State College, toppling longtime head coach Joe Paterno and eventually leading to severe NCAA sanctions against the football team. Sandusky, 68, vigorously contested the charges but was convicted in June of 45 counts of abuse of boys, including violent sexual attacks inside campus facilities. He was sentenced last month to 30 to 60 years in prison. A grand jury report alleged Spanier testified falsely that he did not know of a 1998 complaint against Sandusky, made by a mother and investigated by university police. “Spanier was obviously kept in the loop on this matter as Schultz copied him in on emails that discussed the status and conclusion of the investigation,” the jury report said. It also claimed Spanier lied, about a 2001 instance of abuse witnessed by a

graduate assistant, when he testified that Curley and Schultz described it only as horseplay. Email traffic among the men, jurors wrote, “make clear they are discussing an event that involves the abuse of a child.” Spanier’s obstruction charges involve “numerous lies” and hiding “pertinent files and notes,” alleged the grand jury report, known as a presentment. The report described how he addressed the growing scandal last year with the board of trustees, and how he put out statements supportive of Curley and Schultz after their arrest. The jury report said investigators were immediately able to get important records from the university after Spanier was replaced as president. “It should be noted that Spanier continues to mislead with numerous public statements that contain demonstrably false statements,” the jury claimed. Spanier’s lawyers put out a written statement law week that accused Gov. Tom Corbett, who was attorney general when the investigation began, of orchestrating the charges to divert attention from questions about why it took three years to bring charges against Sandusky. They said there was no factual basis for the Spanier charges. “Spanier has committed no crime and looks forward to the opportunity to clear his good name and wellearned national reputation for integrity,” his defense lawyers wrote. “This presentment is a politically motivated frame-up of an innocent man.”

OKLAHOMA CITY — Thunder coach Scott Brooks was happy to see his team get off to a fast start that made his job easy at the end. Russell Westbrook shrugged off a sore shoulder to score 19 points and Oklahoma City cruised past the Toronto Raptors 108-88 on Tuesday night. Serge Ibaka added 17 points for the Thunder, who led by as many as 29 before a sellout crowd of 18,203. They opened the game on a 30-17 run and never looked back. “I thought the start was a big part of our win tonight,” Brooks said. “We’ve talked about this the last few days. We’re just starting to get in a defensive mindset.” Two nights after a ninepoint loss to Atlanta, when the Thunder gave up 31 points off 20 turnovers, Oklahoma City controlled the tempo, packed the lane and forced Toronto to try and score from the outside. “We had good ball pressure and our bigs did a good job,” Brooks said. “Any time we can have four hands involved in a pick-and-roll we put ourselves in a position to have some success. I thought our activity and our deflections were good. We moved. We were all over the floor.” Wearing a black padded sleeve to protect his bruised left shoulder, Westbrook held Toronto’s leading scorer, Kyle Lowry, to two points on 1-of-4 shooting. Lowry exited with 1:29 left in the second quarter with a right ankle sprain and did not return. Raptors coach Dwane Casey turned the offense

over to seventh-year guard Jose Calderon. “Jose is a veteran player and he’ll be ready to go,” said Casey, whose team plays at Dallas on Wednesday night. “That’s why I kept his minutes to a minimum tonight. He’ll have to play big minutes and John (Lucas III) is a capable point guard, so they’ll have to be ready to go. Knowing Kyle, he’s a tough guy and he’ll get back as soon as he can.” Lowry entered averaging 23.7 points per game. He also led the Raptors with 22 rebounds and 21 assists. His replacement, Calderon, had eight points and four steals in 19 minutes. Kevin Durant and reserve Kevin Martin each scored 15 points for the Thunder, who never trailed after Durant converted a pair of free throws with 7:44 remaining in the first quarter. Jonas Valanciunas led the Raptors (1-3) with 18 points and Andrea Bargnani had 16. Casey said he “didn’t recognize” his team Tuesday night. “We knew they would come out aggressive, focused and we had to meet that type of intensity and we didn’t,” the coach said. “That was disappointing for our young team, but it was a learning experience.” Brooks was able to rest his starters in the 3x5.5 8/13/02 4:41 PM fourth Page 1 quarter as the Thunder improved to 2-2 with their highest-scoring game of the season.

“He was that way to the very end.” Royal and assistant Emory Ballard changed the football landscape in 1968 with the development of the wishbone, which features a fullback lined up behind the quarterback and a step in front of two other backs. The innovation nearly flopped. After a tie and loss in the first two games that season, a frustrated Royal inserted backup Street to take over. “Coach Royal grabbed me and he looked for a minute as if he were having second thoughts about putting me in. Then he looked me straight in the eye and said, ‘Hell, you can’t do any worse. Get in there,”’ Street said Texas won its next 30 games. Soon, rival Oklahoma and other schools started using the wishbone as well. “The University of Oklahoma joins the rest of the nation in celebrating the life’s work of Darrell Royal,” said Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione. “We’ve truly lost an icon — a champion, an innovator and an educator.” The national title season in 1969 included what was dubbed the “Game of the Century,” a come-from-behind, 15-14 victory

year, making him the record-holder in the Football Bowl Subdivision for rushing TDs by a quarterback in consecutive seasons. Considering all that, it’s little surprise that he’s 20-4 as a starter, and that three more wins would push him past Ell Roberson and Heisman Trophy runner-up Michael Bishop for the most wins by a quarterback since Snyder stepped into Manhattan to resurrect the program in the late 1980s. If the kid nicknamed “Optimus Klein” is unable to start Saturday, the challenge of moving the Wildcats — No. 2 in the current BCS standings — one step closer to the national championship game will fall to Sams, an elusive freshman with more raw athleticism but far less experience. “He did a nice job for the

reports of dementia in former players, and with approximately 3,500 explayers involved in various lawsuits claiming the NFL has mishandled or ignored head injuries. The scrutiny has resulted in thousands of dollars in fines handed out by the league for unsportsmanlike conduct or unnecessary roughness. The players’ union has requested that the NFL place independent neurologists on the sidelines of every game and include them as part of the initial concussions examination protocol. For now, when a player shows signs of head trauma, immediate examinations are conducted by team physicians. Quinn said he’s currently being evaluated by Dr. Micky Collins, the executive director of the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program in Pittsburgh, one of the leading experts in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of athletes who have suffered concussions. Collins helped design the ImPACT test now used by many professional sports leagues, including the NFL, to assess concussions and determine when an injured athlete can safely return to play. Among the athletes he’s treated for concussions are the Penguins’ Sidney Crosby and NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., who sustained two of them in a sixweek span earlier this season. “They’re the best. When you go to try to find help in an area like this, with their expertise, they’re the most advanced,” Quinn said. “They’ve put together a great plan to kind of rehab it and get it back to where it was before the hits.” Quinn said that Collins

He was 5 of 6 throwing the ball, managed the game well enough,” Snyder said. “The more opportunities you have, the better you get.” TCU coach Gary Patterson said he wouldn’t assume that Klein will play, but he also said that both of the Kansas State quarterbacks present problems with their ability to scramble. “Sams, the redshirt freshman, as far as I could see, he ran the same plays as Collin does,” Patterson said. “They both have patience running the football.” Kansas State running back Angelo Pease also said that the offense won’t change regardless of who is under center, and that the Wildcats have confidence in either quarterback. “If Collin plays, he plays, if he don’t, he don’t,” Pease said. “The only difference with Collin is he’s more of a leader, only because he’s more experienced.” put him through “a litany of tests,” everything from vision acuity to the strength of his eye muscles, and even how quickly he recovered after a workout. He’s been cleared for light exercise but not for contact. “The doctors themselves don’t really know when they’ll be clear of concussion symptoms,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said Wednesday. “They test him and when he’s clear, and he shows no residual effects, they can say, ‘Ok, you’re cleared.”’ In the meantime, Matt Cassel will resume his job as the Chiefs’ quarterback. Cassel has been the starter the past three seasons, but lost the job after sustaining his own concussion in a game against Baltimore earlier this year. Cassel wasn’t cleared for his next start, and Crennel gave the job to Quinn on a permanent basis following the Chiefs’ bye week. “I feel like I’m the starter until told otherwise,” Cassel said. “I’m excited about having another opportunity, and when Brady comes back and he’s healthy, we’ll see what happens.” Nobody is certain when that will happen, though. “I don’t know. I’m not a doctor,” Quinn said. “This is my second one this year, and I think there’s obviously a concern for those sorts of things. If you go back too soon, you have a risk of getting a third one real quick, and who knows after that.” As for the long-term ramifications of the concussions, which have resulted in dementia and other problems among former players, Quinn said it remains in the back of his mind. “It’s something we’re starting to learn more and more about,” he said. “They kind of do start to stack up when they’re not treated in the proper way.”

greeted Royal with a plaque in the Texas locker room proclaiming Texas the national champion. The Longhorns also were named national champions by United Press International in 1970, a year in which Texas lost

its final game to Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl and finished 10-1. Royal faced criticism over the lack of black players on his first 13 Texas teams, although he had coached black players at Washington and in the Canadian football league. At the 1960 Cotton Bowl, Syracuse accused Texas of hurling racial barbs at Syracuse’s black players, which Royal denied. Texas became the first SWC school to announce it would fully integrate the athletic program in 1963, but the football team didn’t have a black letterman until Julius Whittier in 1970. Royal, who acknowledged being unconcerned about racial discrimination for much of his life, credited former President Lyndon B. Johnson with turning around his viewpoint. Johnson, who attended Texas football games after his presidency ended, was close friends with Royal. “I’m not a football fan,” Johnson once said. “But I am a fan of people, and I am a Darrell Royal fan because he is the rarest of human beings.” In 1972, former Texas lineman Gary Shaw published “Meat on the Hoof,” a searing critique of the Texas program that accused the coaches of having a class system within the program and of devising sadistic drills to

drive off unwanted players. Royal tried to distance himself from the claims, saying in interviews he had “never heard” of the drills Shaw described. “I want to be remembered as a winning coach, but also as an honest and ethical coach,” Royal said in 1975. Royal was among the first football coaches in the nation to hire an academic counselor — sometimes referred to as a “brain coach” in that era — to ensure athletes went on to graduate. He also set aside a fund for a special “T” ring, which players received upon graduation. Royal also served as Texas athletic director from 1962-1979. The youngest of six children born to Katy and B.R. “Burley” Royal, he grew up in tiny Hollis, Okla., where he chopped cotton as a young boy for 10-cents an hour to help his family through the Depression. His mother died before he was 6 months old, and he lost two sisters to a fever epidemic. In 1938, Royal’s father took the family from the Dustbowl to California to look for work. Homesick for Oklahoma, Royal soon packed his bags and hitchhiked his way back. Royal is survived by his wife, Edith, and a son, Mack. The couple had two other children, daughter Marian, who died in 1973, and son David, who died in 1982.

Weis looks to showcase Kansas seniors The Associated Press

LAWRENCE — Charlie Weis is facing a very possible 1-11 record in his first year at Kansas. He is now forced to balance respect for the seniors he inherited from former coaches and start building his own program without them. In three weeks, the seniors, who have endured three coaching changes and have only 11 victories in four years, will finish their tumultuous careers. With the majority of the depth chart still occupied by seniors, this balance becomes touchy. Weis is making a final push for them by showing them off to NFL scouts who may give them a second chance in football. Just this week, scouts from the Lions, Steelers and Ravens were all in attendance at practice. On the other hand, Weis has turned to younger players and given them the chance to fight for a starting spot as he searches for at least one more victory. He has dedicated Sundays to this purpose. That’s his day to evaluate underclassmen and search for qualified candidates to move up the ranks. The seniors are

Michael Cummings, a redshirt freshman, has been the most high-profile example

since he took over the starting quarterback spot from senior Dayne Crist. Freshman Jake Love also climbed his way to the top of the depth chart at linebacker. “I feel like every time we get a chance to get out there on the field and get better is definitely an opportunity to be seized and made the most of,” said Cummings who has two touchdowns in three

starts after taking the helm. While giving back-ups a chance to advance, Sundays also mean additional position training for the younger starters. With Cummings at practice, it also gives him an opportunity to continue building relationships with the running backs and receivers he would be working with next season.

Cheating scandal mars Harvard athletes By Jimmy Golen

The Associated Press CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Harvard was stocked up and ready to make a run at its third consecutive Ivy League title. Then came a cheating scandal that cost the Crimson two of its top seniors and, probably, their chances at an NCAA tournament berth. Co-captains Kyle Casey and Brandyn Curry have been scratched from the roster in the wake of a school-wide investigation into whether as many as 125 students shared answers or plagiarized on a take-home, open-book final exam in a single course. Although potential punishments could range from an admonishment to

a year away from school, the two seniors reportedly withdrew from school rather than endanger their final season of eligibility. Now the two-time defending Ivy champions — Harvard shared the title with Princeton in 2011 — have come back to the pack and restored Princeton to its usual spot as a favorite to earn the conference’s automatic NCAA berth. “With the nature of college sports, you’re going to have instability,” Harvard coach Tommy Amaker said in a conference call with reporters. “You learn to adjust, and that’s what we’re doing. And those things can bring out magical moments or interesting times, or growth moments. And those are the things we have our sights set on,

to think of it in that regard: as an opportunity.” So far, Harvard’s roster shuffle is mostly an opportunity for Princeton: In a poll of Ivy League media, the Tigers were installed as the preseason favorite to win to win their 27th conference title. Princeton was ranked first on 16 of 17 ballots in the poll taken in October, after the Harvard players had withdrawn. “I don’t enjoy seeing it, and I don’t think anyone does,” Princeton coach Mitch Henderson said. “Despite losing some important pieces, Harvard’s still going to be very good. Things remain the same here: The expectations are fairly high, and we’re excited to get going.” Princeton is led by pre-

season player of the year pick Ian Hummer, who had 16.1 points and 7.3 rebounds per game last year, when the Tigers finished third to Harvard and Penn. Forward Mack Darrow and center Brendan Connolly will provide Princeton with an experienced frontcourt. The Tigers tied Harvard atop the conference in 2011 — Harvard’s first-ever Ivy title — but Princeton earned the automatic berth for the NCAA tournament in a one-game tiebreaker. Last season, the Crimson broke into The Associated Press Top 25 for the first time ever and won the championship outright to make the tournament for the first time since 1946; they lost to Vanderbilt in their opening game.

New husband unlikely to give up cheating ways

Dear Annie: I have been married to my husband for only one month, and he already has had a brief fling with a woman from his office. This caught me completely off guard. I thought we were happy, and I am pretty sure my husband enjoys being married to me. He always says I am much more than he deserves. I have repeatedly asked him why he would cheat on me. He says he needs more sex with different females to be satisfied. What should I do? — New Bride Dear New Bride: Your husband is telling you quite frankly that he needs more than one sexual partner. This means he is likely to cheat on you multiple times in the future. Unless this is your idea of a good marriage, we don’t see much hope. Get checked for sexually transmitted diseases, and then see a counselor and figure out your next move. Dear Annie: I am in my mid-20s, married with children. My mother lives with us. In fact, I’ve never lived without her, and now I want my family to have a place of our own. Having Mom here has been good because it helps cut expenses and she watches our kids. I love her so much, and she is my best friend, but I am really ready to do everything on my own. When I asked my mother about getting a separate place, it really hurt her. She cried because she wouldn’t be with her grandchildren every day. She was so upset that I gave in and said maybe we should just get a bigger house. Annie, I don’t want a bigger house. I want a small place with just my husband and children. We thought about getting a two-family home so Mom would be close by but separate. We can’t afford a brand-new house, although we are saving for one. How can I get Mom to understand? — Lost in Mother’s Feelings Dear Lost: You don’t need Mom to understand. You are a married woman with a family. You are entitled to have a place of your own. Mom is never going to like it, but she can get used to it. And she will still see the grandchildren as often as you permit, which we suspect will be every day. And it won’t be that easy for you, either, but it’s time to cut the apron strings. Discuss this with your husband and form a united front. Then tell your mother that this is what you are going to do, you’re sorry if she’s upset, you love her and

she is welcome to visit. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Trying To Avoid a Christmas Circus this Year,” whose mother has been giving unequal gifts to the grandchildren. I have six grandchildren who receive different monetary gifts, and it has nothing to do with favoritism or need. I love them all equally, and their parents are well off financially. However, three of them are appreciative and send me thank-you notes. They are three sweet boys who love to hug and visit with me when I’m at their home. The other three, however, are spoiled and wouldn’t know a thank-you note from a grocery list. They take my gifts for granted and barely say hello when I visit. I finally decided that I would give everyone presents and try to form relationships with all the grandkids, but would no longer serve as an ATM for the ungrateful, uncaring ones. As far as I’m concerned, a gift is something one chooses to give and should not be expected or judged. — Texas Dear Texas: Although you say it is not a matter of favoritism, you have, in fact, learned to favor those children who are affectionate and grateful (which is not surprising). Young children need to be taught manners. While the parents should be doing that job, you are also in a position to be their instructor. You will be giving them lessons that will serve them well in the future.

Horoscope The auspicious alignment of Venus in artistic Libra and Jupiter in communicative Gemini will inspire affectionate gifts, lingering flirtations and a fruitful outcome for labors of love. Venus trine Jupiter temporarily overcomes whatever complications the Mercury retrograde had in mind. Mistakes turn out to be lucky; flaws become irresistibly cute. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re not quite ready for a big opportunity, but it’s coming anyway. A lack of experience isn’t reason enough not to try for this one. When the pressure is on, you do your best. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The errands you run for other people are somehow easier to accomplish than the ones that are strictly for you. You like to help and are rewarded by the smile at the end of the tunnel. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Friends are likely to keep your confidences, but why risk it? There are some things you’re better off not sharing — for instance, the minutia of relationship statuses that are likely to change with the weather. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have already learned your place in a system. So if someone tries to teach it to you anew, you could either politely pretend to pay attention and take the lesson, or you could turn the table. How feisty do you want to be? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Cats like you aren’t entirely nocturnal. It’s just that they are hunting machines, and they do some of their best hunting at night. You’re the same right now with something you want to acquire in the after hours.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your admired person will be part of the action. You don’t need super-vitamins or caffeine drinks to get through the day if you have an invigorating presence standing next to you for at least some of it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When lightning strikes, thunder comes resounding from the Earth. When you make your electric move, you elicit a noisy response from the masses, perhaps in the form of applause. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The sacrifices and trade-offs you make to keep a relationship healthy will be well worthwhile. It’s your job to make sure this is true and to avoid over-giving, which helps no one. Don’t be a martyr. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As on any dance floor, each dancer’s moves are subtly influenced by the movement of the other dancers. You’ll be aware of the rhythmic force inside you. Your heart beats to the music of the world. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just when you start to fear that all the excellent work you put into your project will come to nothing, a glimmer of hope glints in the sun. Your breakthrough is around the corner. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your enthusiasm is like an egg white. With enough vigor, it can be whipped into the light and wonderful meringue that turns an ordinary tart lemon pie into a spectacular dessert. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are so in sync with the season, and yet you put your own spin on everything you do. You’ll love the creativity and fresh ideas that are sprinkled throughout this day.

Bass helps Celtics over Wizards in OT End in sight? NHL, players bargain deep into night

By Ken Powtak

The Associated Press BOSTON — Brandon Bass scored five straight points in overtime, helping the Boston Celtics pull out a 10094 win over the Washington Wizards on the back end of a home-and-home Wednesday night. Kevin Garnett led the Celtics with 20 points and 13 rebounds, Rajon Rondo had 18 points and 14 assists and reserve Jason Terry had 16 points. Bass finished with 11. Bradley Beal, Kevin Seraphin and Martell Webster each scored 16 points for the Wizards (0-3). Bass hit a tiebreaking free throw, making it 93-92, then scored on a twisting layup on the next possession. He added a breakaway dunk with 37.7 seconds left to help seal it. Boston (2-2) beat the Wizards 89-86 in Washington on Saturday night. Reserve Chris Singleton’s clean drive down the lane for a dunk tied the game with 9.4 seconds left. Rondo then missed a jumper as the horn sounded, sending the game to OT. Beal’s 3-pointer from the top of the key had given the Wizards an 83-82 lead with 68 seconds left, and they made it 84-82 when Webster hit a free throw after Garnett was whistled for a technical. But Garnett was fouled on Boston’s ensuing possession and hit both free throws, tying it. Pierce then stole the ball from Seraphin at midcourt and was fouled, hitting the first of two to push Boston ahead 85-84. After Webster turned the ball over trying to drive the lane, Rondo hit one of two free throws to make it 86-84 with 27 seconds left. Singleton nailed two free throws tying it at 86 before Rondo hit a 20-foot jumper from the top of the key to push Boston back in front. Boston had taken a 71-60 lead with just over 10 minutes to play on Paul Pierce’s three-point play, coming on just his second basket of the game, when he was fouled on a fast-break layup. The Wizards then climbed back mostly behind the play of Singleton, who scored six of Washington’s eight points as it narrowed the gap to 77-76 on Webster’s 3 with 5:19 left. After Terry nailed a 3 for Boston, the Wizards scored the next four

The Celtics had trailed by seven in a first half that mostly featured poor shooting and sluggish play — except when Garnett was on the floor — but scored the initial five points after the break to tie the game at 42. Garnett had 10 rebounds, two blocked shots and seven points in the first half and the Celtics outscored the Wizards by 11 when he was on the floor. Washington pulled to a 49-44 lead midway into the third quarter on Beal’s three-point play before Boston closed the quarter by scoring 12 of the final 14 points to grab a 66-58 lead entering the final quarter. Chris Wilcox, still working back into shape after heart surgery last season, sparked the run with six points and Terry had a pair of baskets. Washington shot just 29 percent in the opening quarter and trailed 21-16 at the break, but used a 20-7 run mid-

way into the second en route to a 42-37 halftime edge. NOTES: Garnett had 10 rebounds in just his first 7:09 of play, collecting his 10th only 16 seconds into the second quarter. ... Wizards C Nene was out again with plantar fasciitis of his left foot. He hasn’t played yet this season. ... Washington G Jordan Crawford, who tweaked his ankle in the loss to Boston Saturday, returned to action. ... Boston rookie F Jared Sullinger started his second straight game and coach Doc Rivers had a simple answer why. “We’re playing the same team,” he said. ... The Celtics host Philadelphia Friday before playing four of five on the road. ... The Celtics were given a delay of game warning because Garnett wasn’t ready for the tip, going through his usual pregame ritual when he goes under one of the baskets and slightly bangs his head against a padded support to get motivated.

NEW YORK — The NHL and the players’ association did all their talking at the bargaining table, far away from the public eye. With another round of talks scheduled just one day after more than seven hours of negotiations, perhaps progress is being made. There was already common ground before negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement began Tuesday and lasted deep into the night. The players’ union adhered to the league’s request to keep the meeting location in New York a secret, and with no outside distractions, the sides talked and talked from afternoon until night. Once they broke for the day, neither side gave any hint of what was discussed or if progress was made, but both pointed to the next round of talks. “With meetings scheduled to resume Wednesday, the league will not characterize the substance or detail of the discussions until their conclusion,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said in a statement. The marathon session highlighted Day 52 of the lockout and provided at least a glimmer of hope that maybe it will end soon. Daly and union special counsel Steve Fehr, who conducted a long one-onone session on Saturday, were joined on Tuesday by

Commissioner Gary Bettman, NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr, a handful of team owners, and 13 players including Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, who has been an active participant in the process. The union did its talking Tuesday before negotiations began. “We’re hopeful that we’ll start bargaining and we’ll continue bargaining until we find a way to make a deal,” Donald Fehr said early Tuesday afternoon. “Sometimes that goes in rather long sessions with short breaks and sometimes you take a few hours or half a day or a day to work on things before you come back together. I don’t know which it will be. “We certainly hope we’ll be continuing to meet on a regular basis. I hope they do, too. I’m just not making any predictions.” His hope was met — at least for one day. Fehr’s brother, Steve, met with Daly on Saturday in a secret location, and neither provided many details of what was discussed, but both agreed that the meeting was productive. That was proven when the sides agreed to quickly meet again Tuesday. Until Saturday, there had been no negotiations since talks broke off Oct. 18. “The players’ view has always been to keep negotiating until we find a way to get agreement and you sort of stay at it day by day, so it’s very good to be getting back to the table,” Donald Fehr said.
