Wife charged in mistress’ death Irina Puscariu fatally shot at home in Gladstone By Amy Neal A Gladstone woman was fatally shot in her home last week after her boyfriend told his wife their marriage was over. Shannon L. O’RoarkGriffin of Granbury, Texas, was charged with firstdegree murder and felony armed criminal action in the Friday, Jan. 13, death of Dr. Irina A. Puscariu. The 46-year-old psychiatrist was shot three times from about 4 feet away, according to the statement of probable cause from the Gladstone Department of Public Safety, after opening her front door to O’RoarkGriffin. When police arrived at the home in the 600 block of White Oak Lane, they found the victim with wounds to her face. Puscariu and O’RoarkGriffin’s husband, 62year-old Roscoe L. Griffin
of Lyons, Kan., had been romantically involved. After the shooting, O’Roark-Griffin told her husband on the phone that she had done what she thought had to be done “to protect him and others from this evil woman,” the statement said. Puscariu’s mother, Aneta Puscariu, witnessed the shooting. In her account of the incident to police, she said a woman had rung the door bell. Irina Puscariu answered the door, then stepped back from the entrance and into the living room. The female visitor, later identified by Aneta Puscariu as 52-yearold O’Roark-Griffin, fired three shots at the victim and left. Griffin called Gladstone police just after 2 p.m. after receiving phone calls from his daughter and his

Self-proclaimed sovereign citizens refuse to pay county By Nancy Hull Rigdon A Clay County resident has refused to pay real estate taxes the past two years, saying the government can’t tell him what to do. Should the county sue him? Or, if he continues to evade his taxes, should the county put his home on the auction block as part of its annual tax sale? Clay County Collector Lydia McEvoy asked these questions during a Clay County officeholders meeting Jan. 9. With similar instances of those who call themselves sovereign citizens becoming an issue nationwide, the county officials are looking to nail down answers to McEvoy’s queries as well as a uniform way of handling these individuals. The sovereign citizen movement is an antigovernment movement in which individuals assert they fall outside of governmental control. No court has upheld their claims. “These people can be coming up to any of your windows at any time,” Clay County
Sheriff Bob Boydston told the officials. “You need to be ready.” The homeowner McEvoy was referring to is John Mael of Kansas City North. Attempts to reach him for comment were not successful. He isn’t the only selfdescribed sovereign citizen from the area with the last name Mael. According to the Platte County Prosecutor’s Office, when David Mael of Kansas City North was pulled over for suspicion of driving while intoxicated in October in Platte County, he told a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper who read him his Miranda rights, “I give you no jurisdiction over me, and I do not submit to anything you say about me.” In December, a jury found David Mael guilty of DWI and driving without a license. Presiding Commissioner Pam Mason stressed the serious nature of the issue. “We have to be extremely careful on how we deal with these people. This should be treated like a terroristic threat,” Mason said.

Family support work honored By Dale Garrison Tri-County Mental Health Services has received regional recognition for its efforts to support families and the loved ones of people with a mental illness. Jamie Wehmeyer, director of assessment and youth CPRP services, has been awarded the Mental Health Professional Award by the Kansas City chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness for her work as co-facilitator of the monthly Family Support Group. Board member Jeanne Pyland, her husband Jim Pyland and Bob Marolf received NAMI’s 2011 Family Award at the same meeting this fall. While the Pylands and Marolf were honored in part for their support of an adult son, they and Wehmeyer are all instrumental in helping to develop a range of family-oriented supports at the community mental health center. The efforts include three programs that focus on providing direct help and support. Wehmeyer said the honors should be shared even more. She cited co-facilitator Lori Byl, as well as several family members who have helped others even as they sometimes struggle
Free program for families A free, 12-week program for family members and led by family members who have loved ones with a mental illness will begin Monday, Jan. 30, at Tri-County Mental Health Services. Developed to meet family requests, this is the second session of the program to be held in the Northland. The Family-to-Family program is an opporthemselves. NAMI is also directly involved in two of the support programs at Tri-County. “There are a lot of people who get credit for all of this,” she said. “That’s part of what makes it effective. We have a number of people who are involved.” The story goes back almost three years when Wehmeyer and Byl re-established Tri-County’s Family Support Group, which meets the first Wednesday of each month. In the last year TriCounty has become home to an ongoing series of NAMI Family-to-Family sessions. Connections made through these two groups led to formation of another support group organized by NAMI. Created at the request of family group members, this third group meets the third
tunity for family members to learn more about mental health as well as how to advocate for their loved ones. It is sponsored and organized by the National Alliance on Mental Illness Kansas City chapter. The meetings are designed for parents, siblings, other family members and significant others of individuals with severe and persistent mental illness. The weekly meetings are from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at 3100 NE 83rd St. in Kansas City North. To register, contact Jen Boyden at firstname.lastname@example.org or 931-0030.
Wednesday of each month. The effort is much more than meetings, however. “It’s been so enlightening to me to be reminded of the impact mental illness has, not just on the person but on the whole community,” Wehmeyer said. “So many families are out there struggling, and they don’t have that support. Our families are in there saying, ‘We’ve been there, we’ve done it and so can you.’” Wehmeyer said the three programs offer different content and are all held at Tri-County. The Wednesday NAMI family support meeting is the most traditional family support group, emphasizing open-ended dialog between family members and others who love and care for someone with mental illness. Wehmeyer sees
that as a critical foundation. “You see families everywhere that don’t know where to turn,” she said. “But in our meetings, someone from another family will lean over and say, ‘We went through that, too.’ Then they’ll help them connect with a program that can help them or just tell them how they dealt with it. It’s really amazing.” Tri-County’s family support group includes similar dialog but also features speakers on topics such as medications or legal issues. The most formal effort is the NAMI Family-to-Family program, which is 12-week course taught by trained family members. All of the programs are free. For additional information, call 468-0400.

Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement task force based in Kansas City North. The customs enforcement task force could reimburse the county for up to $15,000 of over time pay each year. The new position could end up paying for itself through forfeiture of
assets related to the work. For instance, if a company is found to be employing illegal immigrants, the federal government could seize the company’s assets and give a percentage of that money to the county. The increased local enforcement efforts are part of a national government effort to curb illegal immigration.
Your Letters Independent shops needed at mall I have lived in the area for 30 years and have many fond memories of shopping with my family and friends at Antioch Center. I particularly enjoyed how festive the mall looked during all of the traditional holidays. I have hated to see how run down the mall has become, and I am very excited to see that redevelopment of the mall is finally starting to take place. I am tired of our Clay County tax dollars going to Platte County. I noted in your Jan. 5 “Your Letters” section
that another resident is also looking forward to the mall coming back to life. I would like to send in my “wish list.” While I understand the appeal of the national chain stores, I have always tried to shop in independent stores that are locally owned. For example, despite the convenience of Barnes & Noble and Borders book stores, I continued shopping at the Anderson Book Store in the mall until its closing. I am hoping for some unique, locally owned shops to open along with a few of the more triedand-true. Let’s give our own small businesses a
chance to shine with such stores as a bakery, coffee shop/cafe, books/stationery/gifts store and a fun clothing/accessories store. I believe our com-
munity will support these businesses and bring life back to the ‘old corner’ of Antioch and Vivion roads. Anne McManus, Gladstone

Share this prayer: Embrace the unfamiliar By the time you read this, your new year will be well underway. You may have even failed on your resolution by now! Don’t beat yourself up about it. This is the “no guilt zone.” You’re welcome. My 2012 started in a unique way. In the wee hours of the morning (5:30 a.m.) on Dec. 31, 2011, I traveled downtown to participate in the annual Interfaith Meditation for World Peace. As we all walked the few blocks to the event, the streets were arrayed with different ethnicities, ritual garbs and dialects in hushed whispers riding on the cool dew of the dawn. It’s time for honesty … I didn’t really go to meditate for world peace. I saw “Whirling Dervishes” on TV and wanted to see one in real life. However, this event made me embark on 2012 in a much more thoughtful way. I’ll elaborate. Each faith (14) had a representative who stood in a line at the front to pray, meditate, dance or sing. One by one,
was a mix up as to who was next. “How embarrassing,” we all thought, trying to empathize. Then, the words that followed would remain with me for days. The first gentleman, clad in a black shawl and a beret-like hat said, “I am Ahmed, and I am a Muslim.” Then the taller, older man wearing a Yarmulke said, “And I am Samuel. I am a “Ahmed and Samuel Jew.” Then in unison, they said something the world has been stole my heart. longing to hear. “We would like They didn’t pray for to share our prayer.” We sat world peace; they in silence, tears streaming, as these two “enemies” prayed planted it like together and embraced with seeds of hope and love and compassion. Yes, there was a Whirling watered it with Dervish, and she was fantastheir humility.” tic. But, Ahmed and Samuel stole my heart. They didn’t pray they each came up, stated for world peace; they planted it their religion and presented like seeds of hope and watered their meditation form. It was it with their humility. fascinating to see how different I am facing a brand new year, — yet how similar — all faiths yet to be lived, hidden from the interact in times of prayer. present. Then, two men stood at the My clients (senior citizens microphone together. We in the moving to retirement communi“audience” thought perhaps there ties or assisted living facilities)
Many choices follow hospital stay An estimated 50 million family members care for older adults in the United States, according to the MetLife Foundation. When older adults are hospitalized and discharged, their families face numerous choices about where they will go and how they will receive care. A University of Missouri nursing expert says the complexity of this process will intensify with increasing demands for health care and workforce shortages, according to a press release from the University of Missouri. “Coordination among families, patients and health care providers is essential to providing effective care for the aging population in the next few years,” said Lori Popejoy, assistant professor in the MU Sinclair School of Nursing. “Stress, fear and lack of understanding often complicate the decisionmaking process for families and patients. Open communication is needed to support end-of-life care and decision-making.” Hospital visits and discharge processes are often complicated; family members have to communicate with each other and health care team members such as physicians, nurses and hospital staff
about treatments and make decisions with limited resources. Popejoy identified common concerns about the process: going home, advocating for independence, making decisions and changing plans. “A new approach to the hospital discharge process should further consider the rights of patients and families — to be fully and accurately informed of older adults’ conditions and realistic care options, including home care, personal care and nursing homes,” Popejoy said. Popejoy said decision-
making should be an interactive and incremental process that occurs among patients, families and health care team members. A health care team member can be designated to communicate information among care providers, patients and their families. In previous research, Popejoy found that families and patients who worked with a nurse communicator reported less stress and better overall care. The study, “Complexity of Family Caregiving and Discharge Planning,” was published in a the Journal of Family Nursing.

are also embarking on the unknown. There is much fear and anxiety, sometimes even anger. Aging never gets any easier. However, I have those rare birds who, like Ahmed and Samuel, embrace the unfamiliar, hold loosely to the “theology” of life and hold fast to the heart of it. Those I help who have this in mind enjoy their new chapter in life and make peace with the fact that much of it has yet to be written. The transitions are easier when they are seen as intersections and not impasses. In the course of a year, I will have many intersections full of choices and options. My clients will have countless more. Perhaps, we can journey together and “share our prayer.” We can all learn to write the pages of our lives with kinder pens. Peace be with you.

Ansley Mueller, 3, draws off to the side of the Hillside Church activity center Friday, Jan. 13, while Friends of the Atkins-Johnson Farm members arrange donated items for the sale. After helping set up for most of the morning, Ansley was “just taking a break.”

wife telling him Irina Puscariu had been killed by O’Roark-Griffin, according to the probable cause statement. Griffin told police he and his wife had met with a “mental therapist” in Great Bend, Kan., earlier in the day. At that meeting, he said he would not give up his relationship with Irina Puscariu, which prompted O’RoarkGriffin to walk out. After discussing the situation on the phone with Puscariu, Griffin phoned O’Roark-Griffin to tell her to proceed with a divorce. After being arrested by the Kansas Highway Patrol the evening of Jan. 13, O’RoarkGriffin was held in the Sedgwick County (Kan.) Jail pending extradition to Clay County. Bond was set at $1 million. Jim Roberts of the Clay
County prosecutor’s office, said Tuesday, Jan. 17, she was still being held in Kansas and he did not know whether she would waive extradition. If convicted, O’Roark-Griffin could face the death penalty or life in prison without the eligibility of parole for the murder charge. KTRK-TV in Houston reported that O’Roark-Griffin was a retired training specialist who had worked at Johnson Space Center and Griffin was an Air Force colonel who worked for NASA in the 1980s as a computer instructor. His Facebook profile lists his current job as “AFJROTC Instructor,” referring to the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps for the Air Force. According to Vitals.com, Puscariu was educated in Romania and affiliated with three hospitals: North Kansas City Hospital, Kansas City Veterans Affairs and Two Rivers Psychiatric Hospital.
