South Barber School Board on sixth-grade sports participation, P1 contract, personnel Barber County Commissioner Harbaugh gives update on county valuation By Yvonne Miller South Barber’s Board of Education met nearly three-and-a-half-hours Monday night at its regular October meeting. About two of those hours were spent on one agenda item: sixth graders’ participation in junior high sports. President Steve Allen presided over the meeting with all members present, including Jeff Black, Deb Helfrich, Dooli Rugg, Dana Roark, Mark Pollock and Mike Anderson. Superintendent Brad Morris and board clerk Julie Johnson also sat at the board table. Barber County Commissioner Harbaugh Corrects Valuation Barber County Commissioner Paul Harbaugh (who represents the Kiowa area) was on the public agenda. He discussed some mistakes made by the former county appraiser whose contract was not renewed by the county in May. Those miscalculations affected Barber County’s valuation, which in turn affects budgets of the county, cities, hospitals, etc. Basically, the oil and gas renditions were incorrect. Those figures are used to figure the county’s valuation, upon what county budgets are based and ultimately taxes owed. After initial valuation figures came out July 1, Harbaugh told South Barber School Board USD 255 to reduce the valuation figure they had from the county by 20 percent when planning their budget. New appraiser Karen Spencer started

this summer and Harbaugh praised her work. “She’s been working through the big issues,” he said. Referring to the barrage of appeals filed by oil and gas companies, Harbaugh said Appraiser Spencer already sent 42 of the 60 appeals. When looking into the oil and gas renditions that were filed, she found some that were incorrect, Harbaugh said. “That’s when the red flag went up the first time.” “Our past appraiser should have handled these by May,” the commissioner said. He apologized for the board of commissioners and said they should have watched the appraiser more closely. “Most of those appeals were in USD 255,” Harbaugh told the school board. He said oil and gas comprises nearly 72 percent of Barber County valuation. He said the county benefited on 12 wells and lost on the rest. “Overall it has helped the county. That 20 percent we talked about is in favor of the county,” Harbaugh said. “It should improve the mill levy, reduce it a little – at least it’s better than at budget time.” “Barber County lost about $12 million valuation, not $30 plus million,” Harbaugh said. The assessed valuation of Barber County by July 1 figures was $167 million, he said. The new figures are currently being finalized now. The commissioner said that figure is now roughly around $155 million. He told the Newsgram the

county will have the finalized valuation figures next week. Sixth-Grade Sports Participation Debated Under new business, board members discussed sixth graders’ participation in volleyball and basketball. Sixth graders already participate in track. The Kansas High School Activities Association (KSHSAA ) does not allow sixth graders to play football. On Oct. 8, 2007, South Barber’s Board of Education approved a policy regarding sixth graders’ athletic participation. It stated that if the number of seventh and eighth graders going out for those sports was low enough, administration could justify sixth graders’ participation. It would be determined yearly. Then on Dec. 8, 2008, the board again amended the policy including dates by which coaches could determine if the enrolled number of seventh and eighth graders warranted sixth grade participation. On June 14, 2010, the policy was again amended to change the number of participants from less than 12 to less than 14. Last night the board approved another amendment. That is if either the sixth grade boys or girls are brought up to participate, both genders will be brought up to participate. That decision came after nearly two hours of debate among board members. Rugg initially asked for the policy to be on the agenda because numerous junior high parents told her they want consistency. She said there are many complaints when the boys are allowed to play and the girls are not or visa versa. PK-6 Principal Marcia Cantrell and Jr/Sr High Principal Brent Shaffer reported that the issue was discussed at Site Council and some parents believe that sixth graders should not play junior high sports. Numerous options were considered by the board: allow sixth graders to participate every year; don’t let sixth graders play on varsity; give seventh and eighth graders first chance; let competition rule See S.

Restoring old photographs By Lynn L. Martin Last week I taught a brief class on the restoration of old images. Might as well make use of the research! Most old images consist of 8mm home movies, 2 ¼ slides, 35 mm slides, and negatives. There are wonderful software programs available to help you restore and print old photos. Slides and movies are usually converted to DVD for display on a home TV. Even though there is software to help you to repair and restore fading photos, the use of the software can be very time consuming. If you have a photo with 1,000 white dust spots or dark “fly-specs” damaging the surface of the print, that’s 1,000 mouse clicks to repair all the spots. There are some programs that claim to eliminate dust spots with one click. All I can say is we’ve never found one discerning enough to use at our photo studio. We go manual! Movies Most people with collections of home-movies haven’t looked at them

for decades. Virtually all home movies fade with time, even if they are safely stored in round metal tins. The contrast disappears and they usually fade toward red. Another problem with saving home movies to DVD is working movie projectors are fast disappearing. The rubber belts within a projector become brittle and typically will break or slip the minute you turn it on after 40 years of disuse. No business that I know stocks rubber belts, since the projector manufacturers are long out of business. I think we have two working projectors at the studio and as soon as they die, we’re out of the movie transfer business. Slides Because slides were made from virtually the same film stock as movies, they fade the same way. The image loses contrast and fades toward a red-orange color. Prints or DVDs can be made from slides. Most people choose DVD for display on a home TV. There are about three ways to get slide images into a computer so you can work on them. There are scanners that slide one image at a time and this produces very high quality copies. The problem is this is very time consuming. If you have a tray of 80 slides, an individual scan of each will take about five minutes. That’s 400 minutes. That’s nearly seven hours to do one tray of slides … and you haven’t even started working on them to correct the problems. Another method is to “gang-scan” on a flat bed scanner that has a transparency adapter. Scanners like that cost about $350. At least you can scan about eight slides in one pass that takes five minutes. That’s quite a bit better than one slide per five minutes. Still, it is

time consuming and “gang-correcting” of eight slides is not a very good way to go. It is better to split them apart after the scan and correct them individually. VERY time-consuming. The way most people have us convert slides at our photo business is to project them in a dark room on a smallish screen (very bright that way) and capture them with a video camera. Then we transfer that to DVD. There is zero restoration with this method. You have merely converted a faded slide to a faded DVD. The first two methods permit some restoration of the image. At our business we charge $5, $3 and $1 respectively. Prints A good flat bed scanner (that doesn’t do slides or negatives) can be found for around $100. You can scan prints 8 x 10 or smaller on one of these. If you want to scan larger prints you can do them in sections and then try to reassemble the image. Photoshop software does a very nice job of reassembling scans like this. You can also re-photograph prints with a still digital camera if it has sufficiently high resolution. We never shoot with less than an 18 megapixel camera and often use a 21 megapixel camera. Lighting choice is a delicate problem with this method. Software Photoshop (used to be $600) is the gold standard of photo-fixing software. Adobe doesn’t even sell it in boxed packages anymore. Instead, you have to pay a $50 monthly rental and use it (along with all Adobe programs) from the “cloud.” I personally think Adobe is shooting themselves in the foot with See Says Page 31

Chiefs theatre team takes regionals The Cherokee High School (CHS) theatre team won the OSSAA 4A Northwest Regional one-act competition held this past weekend in Fairview. Okarche High School won second and will advance with Cherokee to the state contest held Oct. 25-26 in Oklahoma City. Alva, Fairview and Okeene also competed. “We had a tough region,” CHS Theatre Director Jason Paris said. “You know, I don’t know how many past state titles were represented at Fairview on Saturday, but it was a significant number. I think all five schools have won state in the past, and some of them have won many times. And all the productions were pretty impressive, so it was an exciting day for our cast and crew.” In addition to the regional championship, all four cast members of the Chiefs’ production of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The 39 Steps” earned positions on the 10-person Regional All-Star Cast. The stage crew also won the Technical Theatre Award for outstanding achievement in the technical arts of theatre production. “We’re obviously happy with the results,” Paris said, “All three judges ranked us first, which is exciting. And any time you can take 40 percent of the all-star cast, that’s a good day. The icing on the cake is the technical theatre

award. Technical crews are the unsung heroes of theatre because if they’re doing their job right, you’re completely unaware of them, yet there’s no show without them That’s especially true for this show. The crew works just as hard

and moves just as quickly as the actors. I wish people could watch the show from backstage to really get an appreciation for how complicated their work is.” See Chiefs Page 36

Stop for expired tag nets drug arrest By Marione Martin A couple from Medford was stopped in Cherokee because of an expired vehicle tag on Oct. 5. According to documents on file, Alfalfa County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell was sitting stationary when he saw the dark colored Pontiac and ran the tag number. It came back as having expired the prior month. He caught up with the vehicle and stopped it at Fifth and Massachusetts. Trekell talked to the driver, Ronnie Jay Brown, 33, of Medford, asking for his driver’s license and insurance and letting him know his tag was expired. Trekell smelled an overwhelming odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle

a transmitter as a retirement gift. This resulted in the birth of radio station WGAL in Cedar Rapids, Ark. A small cast of BLT stage-favorites perform 21 original songs performed with thematic props that produce true musical talent and hilarity at the same time.

The “Radio Gals” book, music and lyrics are by Mike Craver and Mark Hardwick. A review of the play in The New York Times said Radio Gals “Keeps the music, country humor, conflict and romance coming fast enough to charm the ear and occupy the eye.”

Maltbie exhibits supreme ewe at Tulsa State Fair By Sarah Garvie, Burlington FFA Reporter Years of hard work and dedication paid off for Burlington FFA President Jenna Maltbie when her Dorset ewe was selected as the Supreme Ewe of the 2013 Tulsa State Fair. Prior to her selection as Supreme, Maltbie’s ewe was named the Grand Champion Ewe of the Great

Plaints Continental Dorset Show and earned Champion Dorset Ewe honors in the Junior Breeding Show. Maltbie also exhibited the ninth overall Hampshire wether lamb of the Tulsa State Fair and qualified for the Junior Livestock Auction, where her lamb was purchased by Oklahoma Farm Bureau and the Oklahoma Youth Expo.

“This was the highlight of my showing career,” stated Maltbie, “I have worked for six years to earn the purple banner and this made for a memorable senior year.” Other Burlington FFA members earned top honors as well. Sadie Collins and Anthony Clark both exhibited wether goats that placed at the top end of their classes and were selected to show again in their division line-up. Tanner Rieger had sixth- and eighth-place crossbred lambs and Jaden Allen exhibited the fourth overall speckled wether lamb. In the pig barn, Tateyn Rieger placed sixth with his Hampshire barrow and Makalah Henderson earned a blue ribbon with her Californian rabbit. Bayli Hyde concluded the Tulsa State Fair by exhibiting a third-place Angus heifer. Congratulations to these Burlington FFA members on finishing a great season of showing at the Tulsa State Fair.

By Marione Martin A couple was arrested at the Alfalfa County Fairgrounds Oct. 5 for public intoxication and outraging public decency. According to documents on file, Woods County Deputy Sheriff Blake Trekell was on routine patrol about 3 a.m. when from several streets away he saw tail lights in the parking lot of the fairgrounds at Cherokee. Trekell drove into the parking lot, shutting off his headlights. The vehicle had all the lights on including the interior lights, and a back car door was open. There did not appear to be anyone in the vehicle. Trekell activated his emergency lights behind the vehicle and then stepped out and began to approach. He heard a female voice holler as he stepped out. As he approached the vehicle, he could hear a female screaming from inside the car. When he got to the back passenger side window, Trekell saw a woman nude from the waist down See Couple Page 34

Alfalfa County purchases power cot

By Alex Cole The Alfalfa County commissioners held a regular meeting on Tuesday. Commissioner Chad Roach was absent. At the last regular meeting, the commissioners opened a bid from Stryker Medical of Chicago for a power cot for the ambulance district. Power cots raise and lower patients with the push of a button and prevent medics from doing strenuous lifting. The agenda item was tabled until the Tuesday meeting when Gene Kuepfer of the ambulance district could review it. The board voted to ap-

prove the bid. The board approved minutes from the last meeting, M & O warrants, blanket purchase orders and road crossing permits before approving bridge inspection invoices and reports of conference for all three districts. An Interstate 40 crosstown steel beam transfer form for District 3 bridge 3138 was approved afterward. Approval of monthly officer reports was on the meeting agenda but none were turned in to the board. A highway expenditure report was approved as was

a resolution for the disposal of an HP Inkjet printer from the assessor’s office. Lastly, the commissioners approved the appointment of John Bellamy as a board member for the Nescatunga Rural Fire Department Board and then a Chesapeake leaser mineral lease option proposal for Section 27, Township 28 North, Range 10, West of the Indian Meridian. A total of 10 road crossing permits were approved at $19,500. District 1 had five permits at $9,500; District 2 had two permits at $2,000; District 3 had three permits at $8,000.

Other South Barber Board Business Members discussed at length the P1 maintenance agreement options on the major improvement project they did at the grade school. The board approved the one-year agreement for $11,556. Superintendent Morris said P1 has already been at the grade school to fix a few things. Regarding the Chromebooks used by students, Morris said technology director Luke MacKinney sees the need for more training and deals with a few other issues. Kacee Henderson received approval as a first grade teacher; Gayle McNett as a substitute teacher. The board accepted the resignation of David Daughhetee as assistant middle school boys basketball

coach. Vo-Ag teacher Kyle Jacobs replaces Daughhetee. Brett Mott was reappointed as the board’s representative to the South Barber Recreation Commission. Receiving board approval: Resolution 2013-9 for an interlocal agreement for special education service with the South Central Kansas Special Education Cooperative; and Resolution 2013-10 for an interlocal agreement with Educational Services and Staff Development Association of Central Kansas (ESSDACK).

this greedy effort. Corel Photopaint is around $79 and does photo manipulation quite well, although I noticed Corel is trying to tempt people to go the “cloud” also. Corel doesn’t realize it but Adobe has opened the door for them to have huge success in selling photo manipulation software in boxes. If Corel decides to emulate Adobe by going to only “rental” software, they are being very stupid. Free software for photo-manipulation is PhotoScape. You can find it using a search engine. However, there is a horrible price to pay for this FREE software. This software is paid for by junk tag-along software that will overwhelm your computer with pop-up ads every few minutes. Whatever you do, don’t follow the install advice of choosing the quick install. Instead, use the custom install. Even in custom install, the first screen tries to change your search engine and your home page. EACH subsequent install screen still will offer junk software that is pre-checked to “Yes.” Some of the check boxes are hard to find, so be very careful in accepting this software. A slight commercial here: at our photo studio we perform flatbed scans for people and load the image on a thumb drive for $5 per scan. You can avoid buying a scanner that way and still have a computer-based image if you want to try your hand at photo restoration.

Trekell could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage about the person of the woman, identified as Shyana B. Nicely, 23, of Arkansas City, Kan. He asked how much she had to drink, and she said about a pitcher of beer at a bar earlier in Alva. He then talked to the man, identified as James Patrick Grif-

fin, 22, of Jet, and asked why they chose the public parking area of a fairground, where people sometimes stay overnight for events, to engage in their activity with the lights on and the door open. Griffin said they had kids at the house in Jet, and it just seemed like a good idea. Griffin said he drank around three beers. Both Nicely and Griffin have been charged in Alfalfa County with misdemeanors of public intoxication and outraging public decency.

Crew members include Stage Manager Kelby Franks, deck crew members Trevor Lucas and Shelby Porter, projectionist and sound operator Hayden Clem, and lighting operators Jadon Hicks and Reagan Hester. Volunteer Assistant Director Michael Cox leads the technical crew. “Of course the cast is outstanding, too,” Paris added. “At this point, that kind of goes without saying. They’ve worked extraordinarily hard on this show, and it’s an incredibly hard show to pull off. What’s so cool about these guys, though, is they’re really transcending the limitations of high school theatre. The performances they’re turning in are superb, and it’s a real testament to their dedication and work ethic, not to mention their artistry. Three of the cast, as well as several crew members, play football, which really is fantastic, but it means they get to school at 8 in the morning and really don’t get a break until 9 or 9:30 every night. It’s remarkable because they’re making important contributions to multiple CHS programs, and they’re doing it with integrity and dedication and character. That’s where our success comes from. As a director, I’m really just benefitting

from having these exceptional students to draw on.” The cast includes sophomores Avery Bagenstos and Nicholas Cochran, junior Dakota Knabe and freshman Dillon Cochran. Paris won’t speculate on the team’s chances at state, saying that at the state level, too many variables exist. “It’s not like you can play defense,” he explained. “And there are eight productions for the judges to remember at the end of the day. But, look, if anyone can pull off a state title, it’s this particular company of theatre practitioners. Honestly, though, the competitive aspect of the event drives me crazy. You can’t put a Picasso up against a Monet and tell me which one’s better. They’re two different painters, painting in two different styles. So it’s subjective. If we win, we win. Of course I hope we do, but it’s art. The important thing is to know that Cherokee High School is engaging with the arts at an impressively high level, and creating some legitimate artists who will be a real credit to their school and community in the future. Having said that, we’re going to do our best to bring home the big trophy, but whether we do or we don’t, this is a show I hope people will turn out for. It’s great fun, and these kids are killing themselves to make it as professional a production as possible.” “The 39 Steps” will play the Chief Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov.3, at 3 p.m.

and saw the passenger, later identified as Amanda Marlana Brown, 32, of Medford, had a bottle of what appeared to be cologne or perfume in her hands. Trekell asked the driver to accompany him back to his patrol vehicle. He asked the passenger to step out of the vehicle and stand to the side so he could watch that she did not have the opportunity to destroy any evidence. Once in the patrol vehicle, Trekell told Ronnie he could smell marijuana and asked him why. He said they had been at a friend’s house and had been smoking marijuana. Trekell asked if there were any drugs or paraphernalia in the vehicle, and he said he had a small set of scales in his pocket he got from a friend’s house. Trekell then went to speak to Amanda. He said Ronnie told his side and asked where the marijuana was. Amanda looked at him for a moment, not saying anything. She then began to cry and said it was in her bra. He asked her to face away from him and retrieve it. She did and gave him a small plastic baggie containing approximately 7.5 grams of a green leafy substance that smelled like and appeared to be marijuana. Trekell searched the vehicle and found no illegal items. Both Ronnie and Amanda Brown were placed under arrest and taken to the Alfalfa County Jail. Both now face a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
