This file photo shows what appears to be a $3,000 check, sent to a Lawrence woman along with a letter informing her she was a sweepstakes winner. But the check was bad, and the “sweepstakes” was a scam.
Sweeps or scam? Below, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt provides tips on avoiding sweepstakes scams. Q: What is a sweepstakes scam, exactly? A: Consumers are told they have won a prize such as cash, or a cruise, television or electronic device. These folks are surprised to learn this because they do not recall entering the sweepstakes. Sadly, they are likely being scammed. Q: How do I know if a prize offer is a scam? A: Scammers will follow the exciting news that you’ve won with a request that you first send them money to cover taxes, fees, shipping or other costs — even though it’s illegal in most places, including Kansas, to require purchases or the payment of fees and taxes upfront before you can receive a prize. Q: Anything else to watch out for? A: Scammers may send you a le-
gitimate-looking check that is supposed to cover those so-called taxes and fees. But once you deposit the check and then wire the money back to them, the check turns out to be fake and any amount you advance the scammer will be lost. Q: What can I do to prevent this? A: Never give personal information, such as your social security number or bank account number, to someone you don’t know who calls you or sends you an email or letter. Never agree to send money in order to claim a prize. Never deposit checks that come with a letter telling you that you “have won.” Q: How can I reduce the junk mail I receive in the first place? A: Don’t enter any sweepstakes or buy anything through a sweepstakes, and have your name taken off of mail marketing lists. Write to: Direct Marketing Association Mail Preference Service, P.O. Box 64, Carmel, N.Y. 10512.

A Tonganoxie Middle School student was taken to an area hospital after being hit by a vehicle after school on Thursday. Tonganoxie police Chief Jeff Brandau said Allyson Sparks, a TMS fifth-grader, was struck by a sport-utility vehicle about 3:15 p.m. The girl was crossing Washington Street and headed north on East Street, Brandau said. There is not a crosswalk at the intersection. She was taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo., by Leavenworth County Emergency Medical Services, Brandau said. She suffered a broken femur in the accident, Brandau said. The accident still is under investigation, but no citations currently are planned to be issued, Brandau said.
Lawrence man jailed in Tonganoxie molestation case A 24-year-old Lawrence man who allegedly molested a 13-year-old Tonganoxie girl in a Tonganoxie park is in Leavenworth County Jail. Police arrested the man Friday at his Lawrence home on a charge of attempted aggravated incident liberties with a child younger than 14. Tonganoxie Police Chief Jeff Brandau said the arrest capped a six-week investigation by Tonganoxie and Lawrence police. In July, the girl told Tonganoxie police she met the man through an online social site. She also alleges that he later asked to meet her in person at a city park, Brandau said. The girl told police the man attempted to molest her at Chieftain Park in Tonganoxie.

RESEARCHERS Sam James of the University of Iowa (left) and Bruce Snyder of Kansas State University examine earthworms in Tonganoxie earlier this year. The professors came after Tonganoxie High School students found worms from a family native to Asia near the school.
Tonganoxie students find worms with Asian roots By Shawn Linenberger email@example.com
Some Tonganoxie inhabitants could be thousands of miles from home, according to researchers’ findings. Tonganoxie High School science teacher John Tollefson’s students in 2010 participated in Kansas State University’s Earthworms Across Kansas, a citizen science project for middle and high school students across the state. What students uncovered near THS was a species of worm of the family Moniligastridae, which is native to Asia. K-State professor Bruce Snyder, who collects samples from schools participating in the project, said it’s a rarity. “There are a couple records in North America, but very few, so it’s a pretty exciting find for us,” Snyder said. How the worms found their way to Tonganoxie is anyone’s guess. Some earthworms are brought to the country intentionally, Snyder said. Others are accidental, such as in potted plants and soil taken from other areas. Construction work is another possibility, Snyder said. That could apply to the Tonganoxie find, because U.S. Highway 24-40 runs not far from where the worms were found — a wooded area south of Tonganoxie High School’s west campus. It’s the first known record of an earthworm from the Moniligastridae family in Kansas, Snyder said. The find brought Snyder, as well as Sam James, an adjunct professor at the University of Iowa, to Tonganoxie earlier this year. James once worked at K-State and later was a research associate at the Kansas University Museum of Natural History. “This little worm is probably of east Asian nontropical origin and belongs to a group of earthworms that is sort of the nearest thing to being an earthworm that is not really an earthworm in the strict evolutionary sense,” James
said. Justin Schelert, a THS senior, said learning of the rare find was an exciting moment, but he still was trying to fathom the worm accidentally making its way to the middle of the United States. “It was a little strange to me, I think,” Schelert said. Katie Jacks, another senior and one of Tollefson’s students, said the research was nothing new in environmental science class. The outdoors often is Tollefson’s classroom, according to Jacks. “Mr. T’s class is a lot of fun,” Jacks said. Tollefson fielded questions about whether the find would translate into any monetary kickbacks. The discovery won’t be financing any college tuition for THS students, but the teacher tried to convey to students what the research meant. “Even though they looked at it that they were just worms, they had done something that people hadn’t done before, that their names would be in the records forever,” Tollefson said. “That generated some excitement with students.” Snyder said some 300 kits had been sent out to Kansas schools for Earthworms Across Kansas, and about 100 were returned with specimens. More common are worms making their way to Kansas from other areas of the U.S., as well as Europe, he said. Worms are a major part of the ecosystem, Snyder said, and research into any invasive worms to an area can determine whether they are threatening the ecosystem. Earthworms from Europe that made their way to forests in Michigan and Minnesota, for instance, “devour everything on the forest floor,” Snyder said. He didn’t see any signs of the Tonganoxie worms being harmful to the area. “At this point, it’s hard to imagine anything they could be doing that could be a problem,” he said.

No hungry kids
Take care on the road

With the advent of the new school year, there’s apprehension some youngsters may be leaving the school cafeteria hungry. This may be in part due to recent changes in this country’s school lunch program. No question, some of the changes in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act are good for our school children. These include more fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, more whole grains and more water instead of sugary drinks. Also included in the new changes are reductions in saturated fat, trans fats and sodium. These efforts are well-intentioned. There is a real concern about the growing problem of childhood obesity and diabetes. The problem arises when you try to solve childhood obesity for some and you short-change the more active children, particularly at the higher age groups. The new guidelines place a ceiling on the amount of proteins and overall calorie content of school lunches. While there have always been minimum requirements for calories, protein and other nutrients, some youngsters may leave the lunchroom hungry. These new requirements for protein are slightly less than what the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends in its overall nutritional guidelines. It appears, however, that the real problem is there is not flexibility to provide fewer or greater calories depending on a student’s age, body weight or level of activity. All of these considerations are necessary to determine a youngster’s nutritional needs. Active, developing youngsters — especially those involved in athletic programs after school — require more calories. If you’ve ever had a daughter or son playing soccer or volleyball
or practicing during summer and fall football, you know they burn these calories. Parents I know, myself included, often pack additional food for their children that include protein, carbs and fruits. In some cases the youngsters complain about being hungry or require more fuel to keep up with their active lifestyles. Young, developing bodies and minds need a healthy, well-balanced diet. However, every child is different and requires different amounts of fruit, vegetables, dairy products and, yes, protein. This protein should include whole cuts of lean beef, pork and chicken — not processed, alreadypackaged, prepared food out of a box, but straight from the steer, hog and chicken. Beanie weenies, chicken nuggets, high-carb mac and cheese or one small slice of pizza with a “one size fits all” portion size designed to curb obesity may not meet the dietary needs of an athlete, an artist, an active 7-yearold or an active farm kid. It certainly doesn’t fully consider the need for adequate, or even elevated, levels of protein necessary to facilitate brain development — that, by the way, is the reason we send our kids to school. Our goal should be to feed our children while they are in school, but feed them with nutritious meals that will help them grow up to be healthy, well-adjusted adults. It’s time to treat our youngsters as individuals and cater to their unique dietary needs. The USDA has created a one-size-fits-all approach that will not accomplish this. Your children, grandchildren and mine deserve the best and healthiest foods available. Let’s not send them away from the school cafeteria hungry.

With students back in school, traffic naturally increases at certain times during the day. We always should be attentive when on the road, whether it’s summer break or when school is in session. Tonganoxie Water Park, for instance, is a spot youths frequent often during the summer, and many of them walk to the park. That means many are crossing Main Street, which is one of the more traveled streets in Tonganoxie. Another is Washington Street, which runs on the north side of Tonganoxie Middle School. And during the school year, it’s an even busier road. Unfortunately, there was an accident there Thursday involving a TMS fifth-grader in which an SUV struck the child. The 10-year-old suffered a broken femur and was taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Mo. It’s hoped that the girl makes a full recovery from the accident. Whenever an accident occurs, there’s speculation as to what happened. Tonganoxie police say no citations are planned for the driver of the vehicle. It’s a tough situation all the way around, but it’s another reminder that we must be alert when being on the road or any-

where near it. For drivers, traveling at reasonable speeds, especially in school zones where it never hurts to travel even lower than the posted speed, is a must. Keeping an eye out for the surroundings and keeping one’s mind off a cell phone are paramount. For pedestrians, caution is key, too. There are times when those driving might not be attentive. Not to repeat what you learned as a child, but look both ways before crossing the road. And keep taking ganders each way as you cross the street. Tonganoxie Middle School recently was named one of the top middle schools in the country. I’d much rather hear about such accolades at 824 Washington St. than emergency officials being called to the address for a traffic accident. Down the street to the west is Genesis Christian Academy, while Tonganoxie Elementary School is near another well-traveled street — Fourth Street. And Tonganoxie High School is along U.S. Highway 24-40. Tonganoxie also has many residents who utilize its trail system. Walkers and runners always are out and about. Just more reminders to be mindful when you’re on or near Tonganoxie’s streets in any capacity.

MEALTIME IDEAS AND RECIPES FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
Tortellini masquerade as croutons in a robust Caesar By J.M. Hirsch AP Food Editor
My 7-year-old son has made me an expert at Caesar salad. Though to be fair, some credit goes to April Bloomfield, too. After several years of “green is evil” behavior by my son, I recently — finally! — managed to persuade him to try Caesar salad. The kid loves savory, umami-rich foods, and I have the receipts from the butcher and cheese shops to prove it. So despite his reluctance to embrace romaine lettuce, I knew an anchovy, egg and Parmesanrich Caesar dressing could win his heart. I had tried any number of times, but the sight of the lettuce always had him running. Until a few weeks ago. On a whim, I opened one of my new favorite cookbooks, “A Girl and Her Pig” by Bloomfield. If you don’t know her, you should. She is the culinary force behind some of New York’s top spots at the moment, including The Spotted Pig and The John Dory Oyster Bar. Her food smacks of big, bold, slapyou-silly flavor. And her unpretentious cookbook of totally accessible recipes brings this into your home. All of which is to say that when I saw her recipe for Caesar salad — she insists the dressing is best applied by gently tossing it onto the lettuce with your hands — I knew I had to try it. I fell in love. More importantly, so did my son. And it was no fluke. I’ve since made the salad for him about a dozen times and he still devours his greens with glee. Trouble is, Caesar salad alone does not make a healthy diet, and certainly not a substantial meal. So I have experimented with how to bulk up this simple, delicious salad. Chicken was an obvious (if not all that original) choice. But rotisserie chicken is simply too easy to pass up for a summer salad-as-meal. I could

CHEESE TORTELLINI is an innovative way to turn Caesar salad into a light meal. have stopped there, but I wanted to play around with the starch. Traditionally, honking big croutons play that role. But I liked the idea of something that is both crunchy and cheesysoft. Pan-crisped cheese tortellini were the perfect choice. Most people don’t realize it, but fresh pasta (the variety sold in the refrigerator case) can be cooked without water. Just give a spritz of cooking spray to a non-stick skillet, then add the pasta and saute until lightly browned and crisp.
Cheese Tortellini Caesar Salad If you have leftover cooked chicken, use that. I found that a 1 1/2-pound rotisserie chicken worked well. Start to finish: 15 minutes Servings: 4
10-ounce package fresh cheese tortellini 2-ounce tin oil-packed anchovy fillets, drained 3 cloves garlic 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1/4 cup Champagne or white balsamic vinegar 1 large egg 1 cup canola or olive oil Ground black pepper 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, finely chopped 3 cups cooked and cooled chicken meat, torn into bite-size chunks 3 heads romaine lettuce, roughly chopped Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Spritz with cooking spray, then add the tortellini. Saute the tortellini for 6 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly
crisped. Transfer to a plate to cool. Meanwhile, in a blender combine the anchovies, garlic, mustard, vinegar and egg. Puree until smooth. With the blender on low speed, drizzle in the oil. Add the cheese and puree until smooth. Season with pepper, then set aside. In a large bowl, toss the chicken and romaine. Drizzle about half the dressing over the salad, then use your hands to toss until well coated. Add the tortellini and drizzle additional dressing, tossing again. You may not need all of the dressing.

Chieftain football hangs on to beat Lansing in season opener By Justin Nutter firstname.lastname@example.org
LANSING — A steady rain turned the football field into a mud pit, which gradually changed Tonganoxie High’s new white jerseys to a dark shade of brown, but the adverse weather hardly put a damper on the start of a new era. Junior Cole Holloway ran for 200 yards and three touchdowns and Tonganoxie held on for a 22-20 victory against Lansing on Friday at Frank Graham Field. “The thing we talked about all summer is believing,” first-year head coach Al Troyer said. “You could see it as they went on. They got stronger and they got stronger. Even though adversity came to them, they were going to still be resilient and fight through it.” THS (1-0 overall, 1-0 Kaw Valley League) trailed by six points at halftime, but scored twice in the first five minutes of the third quarter to take a two-possession lead. Following an interception by junior Jordan Boudreaux, Holloway punched it in on a five-yard run and junior Eric Tate added the extra point, helping the Chieftains to a 14-13 lead with 9:09 left in the third quarter. Just 2:09 later, Holloway broke free for a 49-yard touchdown run and junior Tyler Ford added a two-point
conversion to put THS up, 22-13. Holloway, who missed all but one game with an injury last season, led all backs with 27 carries. “I couldn’t have done it without my offensive line, my quarterback, everybody,” Holloway said. “They helped me through the whole thing. I kind of started cramping in the second half, but everybody was just picking me up and telling me to keep going.” LHS (0-1, 0-1) got within two on a 22yard touchdown pass from senior Jordan Sommerla to senior Lucas Mein in the final minute of the period. That’s as close as the Lions got, though, as the Tonganoxie defense forced a threeand-out and three turnovers in the fourth quarter, which LHS spent with the wind in its face. The Chieftains iced the game when Boudreaux hauled in his second interception of the game with 1:42 remaining. “You know that old adage ‘offense wins game, but defense wins championships?’ Well, we won on defense tonight,” Troyer said. “We knew we had to run the ball because of the weather. When we put (Lansing) in throwing situations, we knew we had the advantage.” Sommerla went 14-of-29 for 217 yards and three touchdowns, but was just 1-of-5 with an interception in his

The Lions’ ground attack was a non-factor, as THS held its opponent to minus-7 rushing yards on 21 carries. Lansing struck first on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Sommerla to Mein with 9:23 left in the first quarter.
THS answered with a 61-yard run by Holloway with 10:29 left in the second. That forced a 7-7 tie, but the Lions went back in front less than two minutes later when Sommerla hooked up Please see FOOTBALL, Page 14
Tempers flare as THS soccer scores comeback win at Basehor-Linwood By Justin Nutter and Stephen Montemayor email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
SOPHOMORE ASHER HUSEMAN scored the winning goal last Thursday at Basehor-Linwood.
The Tonganoxie boys soccer team earned its secondstraight comeback victory this past Thursday at BasehorLinwood, but most of the fireworks occurred before either team got on the scoreboard. A first-half altercation led to three player ejections and left both teams shorthanded for the majority of the game, which Tonganoxie went on to win, 2-1. Roughly 10 minutes into the first half, Tonganoxie senior Zack Tallent collided with Basehor-Linwood’s Trey Kincheloe when both players converged on a loose ball. Tempers flared among players on the field — and between several parents in the stands — before officials is-
sued red cards to Tallent and Kincheloe, as well as THS senior John Lean. Per Kansas State High School Activities Association rules, ejected players can’t be replaced, so Tonganoxie was forced to play with nine players and Basehor-Linwood 10 for the remainder of the match. Chieftain coach Brian Kroll said numerous fans from both sides were also ejected before play resumed. Players began exchanging words about the game on Twitter as early as two days before it happened. Kincheloe sent a tweet at 9:14 p.m. Tuesday — shortly after Tonganoxie’s overtime victory at Bonner Springs — that read “Tongies about to have a rude awakening Thursday... Thats all I have to say” (sic). “It was unfortunate that there was an issue that overshadowed a great match be-
tween two talented teams,” Kroll said. Basehor-Linwood coach Austin Knipp said both schools’ administrations were looking into the brawl, and that the Bobcats were taking it “one step at a time.” “For me, I’ve coached that this behavior is inappropriate and is not accepted,” Knipp said. “It’s an unfortunate event that this happened, but I know that we’ll learn from it and move forward.” Following the scrum, the Bobcats (1-2) went in front on a goal by Zach Ferguson and maintained a 1-0 lead for the rest of the first half. The Chieftains (2-1) evened the score when senior Matt Saathoff caught the BLHS goalkeeper out of position with 17 minutes left in the second half. They went in front 10 Please see SOCCER, Page 14

Chieftain volleyball cruises by Turner, suffers defeat at Paola Mirror Staff Report The Tonganoxie High volleyball team had an up-and-down week, sweeping Kaw Valley League opponent Turner at home, then suffering a defeat at Paola in straight sets. The Chieftains defeated the Golden Bears Tuesday by scores of 25-8, 2518 and 25-17. Senior Jenny Whitledge led the team with 16 kills while fellow senior Maddie Walker added eight. Junior Marissa Martin paced THS with 11 digs.
Following Tuesday’s win, THS suffered its first setback of the season Thursday, falling at Paola in straight sets, 25-4, 25-12 and 25-8. Whitledge led THS with six kills. Martin had a team-high 13 digs while senior Olivia Hollingsworth added six. The Chieftains are now 2-1 on the season. They will return home Sept. 6 to take on Frontier League school Baldwin. The junior varsity squad will start things off at 5 p.m.
THE CHIEFTAIN boys cross country team won its home triangular last Thursday at Tonganoxie Middle School.
THS boys win, girls come in second at season’s first meet By Justin Nutter email@example.com
Despite high temperatures and a rough terrain, the Tonganoxie High cross country started its season off with plenty of success. The Chieftain boys clinched the team title while the girls finished second at their home triangular last Thursday at Tonganoxie Middle School. The boys defeated Kaw Valley League opponent Lansing, 23-34, and the girls finished behind the Lions, 19-36. The third team in the triangular, Kansas City Christian, did not field a full team on either side. “Considering the conditions, I was very happy,” coach Phil Williams said. “Our girls did better against (Lansing) than they did last year, so I was real pleased with that. Our varsity boys ran well. They competed as hard as they could and gave everything they had.” The Chieftains and Lions have squared off in the first race of the season every year since 1970. Sophomore Garrett French claimed the individual title in the boys race with a time of 18:33. Other THS boys to medal were senior Jeff Neal (third overall, 19:33), freshman Ethan Phillips (fifth, 20:17) and junior Andrew Behm (sixth, 20:19). On the girls side, freshman Nicole
Zerrer led the team with a time of 18:12 — good for fifth place overall. Fellow freshman Sophia Wetta was the only other Chieftain medalist, finishing seventh with a time of 18:37. THS will be back in action Thursday when it travels to Effingham for the Atchison County Community High School Invitational. “This sport is 90 percent confidence,” Williams said. “If you start out well, it will really help you for the next week and so on.”

McLouth High football rolls by Nemaha Valley to open season By Justin Nutter firstname.lastname@example.org
The McLouth High football team got the start it was looking for in a 32-6 victory against Nemaha Valley on Friday at Stan Braksick Sports Complex. Senior quarterback Marc Walbridge opened his final campaign by throwing for 128 yards and two touchdowns and running for another in the win. The Bulldogs (10) jumped out to a 12-0 lead at the end of the first quarter and never allowed the Raiders (0-1) to mount a comeback. Walbridge opened scoring in the first quarter when he hooked up with fellow senior Dakota Cop for a 41yard touchdown pass. The fourth-year starter then added a one-yard scoring run to give MHS a two-score lead at the end of the opening period. Senior Wyatt Farris recorded the only points of the second quarter

with junior Kahlil Bailey for a 49-yard score. The Lions didn’t allow another Chieftain score before the break and took a 13-7 lead into the locker room. The Chieftains, who won just one game in each of the last two seasons, hadn’t defeated Lansing since 2006. They’ll return to Beatty Field at 7 p.m. on Friday for their home opener — a non-league matchup against Atchison. “It feels great to start the season off with a win,” Holloway said. “We’ve just got to keep it going. In past years, when we’ve started on a high note, we’ve let it slide. We’ve got to keep it rolling this time.” Led by junior quarterback Tanner Huntington’s 147 yards of offense and three total touchdowns, the Redmen rolled to a 46-6 win last week at Pleas-

minutes later when sophomore Asher Huseman headed a pass from Saathoff into the back of the net. The Bobcats failed to answer in the final minutes and Tonganoxie picked up its second win in three days. For the Bobcats, the loss marked their second-straight defeat in four days. “Even though we were down to nine and they were down to 10, it was a great, great game,” Kroll said.
when he tackled a Nemaha Valley ball carrier in the end zone for a safety, and the Bulldogs took a 14-0 advantage into the locker room at halftime. McLouth extended its lead to 18 points when junior Drew Cerny scored on an eight-yard run in the third quarter. NVHS answered later in the period with a 58-yard touchdown pass from Alex Rottinghaus to Justice McKernan, but that’s all the points the Raiders could manage. Cerny closed out the game with a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns — one on the ground and another through the air. He broke free for an 18-yard touchdown run, then hauled in a 26-yard scoring strike from Walbridge. The Bulldogs will hit the road Friday for a Delaware Valley League clash with Doniphan West in Denton. The Mustangs dropped their season opener to Wathena-Riverside, 32-27. The Bulldogs didn’t face Doniphan West last season, but both teams went undefeated in DVL play. The teams last met in 2009, when the Mustangs handed MHS a 33-0 shutout. Friday’s kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ant Ridge. Tonganoxie and Atchison haven’t met on the gridiron since 2007, when AHS picked up a 42-20 victory at Beatty Field.

Knipp added that he thought his team’s response to the prior distraction on the field was good, but that the Bobcats couldn’t move the ball well enough to avoid tiring faster. “Tongie had great looks that they put away and they ultimately outworked us,” Knipp said. “Today we learn from yesterday and look forward to Topeka Hayden on Tuesday.” The Chieftains and Bobcats are not scheduled to play each other again during the regular season. Tonganoxie opened the home portion of its schedule Tuesday against Atchison. A game recap is available at tonganoxiemirror.com.
