DROUGHT HITTING CATTLE

See AUDIT | Page A5

Sprinklers on barriers between pens at Southeast Kansas Stockyard, Gas, are used to cool cattle from daybreak until dusk. Triple-digit temperatures make handling cattle a tedious proposition.

Herds could be sold early By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

Many Allen County farmers took advantage of last year’s drought to dredge ponds to ensure — they thought — if another drought struck they wouldn’t be caught short of stock water. Now, just a year later and in the midst of an even more severe drought, the fear that ponds will dry up is a very real concern. “That’s the big problem for cattle,” said John Adams, coowner of Southeast Kansas Stockyard at Gas. “Pond wa-

Gov. Sam Brownback’s visit to Iola on Wednesday as part of a drought tour spurred Iola officials to discuss a three-step plan they have in case things worsen. “Our people are taking a proactive approach to the situation by monitoring things closely,” said Bill Shirley, mayor. In a given week under normal circumstances, the city water supply never drops below 90 percent, said Toby Ross, Iola water

superintendent. However, with multiple consecutive days of 100-degree temperatures and little cloud cover to provide relief, Iolans might have to deal with a harsher reality when it comes to water consumption. Initially, relatively mild conditions can trigger a move to the water plan. With John Redmond reservoir near Burlington being drained to help keep water flow on the Neosho River going, the first criteria might not be far off.

Emergency haying and grazing of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acreage has been authorized in 91 Kansas counties, including Allen, Woodson, Anderson and Bourbon, effective from Monday of this week. The U.S. drought monitor map was used to make the decision. Emergency haying will be permitted through Aug. 15, provided at least 50 percent of each field or contiguous

In stage one of the plan, a drop to 75 percent of total water storage in the reservoir level can be a trigger. Another is what local storage is and what the demand is. If the city exceeds 75 percent or 1.6 million gallons of water per day for five consecutive days, then the plan goes into effect. What this means for city workers is an increase in quick response actions. The public works department is tasked with repairSee PLAN | Page A5

Gunman kills 12 at movie screening By RONG-GONG LIN II Los Angeles Times

A lone 24-year-old masked gunman entered a Colorado movie theater playing the new Batman movie and opened fire early Friday, killing at least 12 people and wounding 50, according to police and local media. The suspect, a white male, was found in the parking lot and did not resist arrest, CNN said. Witnesses described a chaotic scene, telling television reporters that they were overcome by noxious gas unleashed by the suspect just before he started shooting, and that they had to decide between staying on the ground, helping wounded victims or running away before the gunman was able to reload his weapon. Survivors said they were forced to run past bodies in the aisles and theater. The gunman was armed with a rifle, a shotgun and two handguns, police said. Cellphone videos show panicked moviegoers running _ some screaming _ and others with blood visible. The death toll was revised downward from an earlier fig-

King talks on KPERS By EMERSON LYNN emerson@iolaregister.com

By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

Iola City Council members will hear Monday from an auditor who identified a “material weakness” and other “significant deficiencies” with the city’s 2011 budget. Scot Loyd of the McPhersonbased accounting firm of Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC accounting firm will speak with council members about the 2011 audit which was handed to city officials this week. In a report accompanying the official statement, Loyd said the “material weakness” deals with reconciling bills sent out from Iola’s ambulance department in 2009 and 2010. When Iola started up its own ambulance service in December 2008, all billing and collections were handled by the ambulance department. However, when the billing responsibilities were shifted to the city clerk’s office in January 2011, city clerk personnel had difficulty reconciling outstanding ambulance bills. Until recently, city clerk personnel “had no access” to the 2009 and 2010 billing records. Loyd recommended city clerk employees go back over the 2009 and 2010 ambulance billing records to reconcile as many bills as possible, even though the statute of limitations on some uncollected bills likely has passed in many cases. “It would be extremely beneficial to get these old ambulance billing accounts receivable all

State Sen. Jeff King started a talk on the reform of the state employee pension system by giving thanks for the state of Illinois. “If it were not for Illinois,” he said, “the Kansas Public Employees Retirement System (KPERS) would be the most underfunded in the country.” Sen. King went on to tell Iola Rotarians Thursday that the reforms adopted by the 2012 Session of the Legislature will bring the current $8.3 billion long-term deficit in the program to zero over 20 or more years while providing assured pensions for retired teachers and other public employees. Sen. King was elected to the Senate in 2010 after serving two terms in the House. He identified the grossly underfunded pension system as one of the major problems facing lawmakers and volunteered to serve on a study committee to propose a solution. The study commission he headed proposed a complex set of reforms which became law. Its provisions will be phased in over the next five years. The new law provides for: • Increased employer (state and local governmental units) contributions. • Increases in curent member contributions or decreased benefits, as workers choose. • Creation of a new tier 3 cash balance retirment plan for new hires, beginning in 2015. • Contributions into the KPERS fund money from state gaming revenues to reduce the unfunded liability. • Contributions into the fund from revenues received from the See KING | Page A2

‘Dark Knight Rises’ well worth the wait By ALLISON TINN allison@iolaregister.com

Seven years have come to an end — the final installment of the Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, “The Dark Knight Rises,” was released Friday. For many the release was bittersweet. It has been four years since the last movie “The Dark Knight,” so Bat-goers were ready for the new movie but didn’t want to see Gotham’s hero hang up his cape for good. If you went to see the fourth “Mission Impossible” movie last year then you saw the first six minutes of the Batman movie. The first six minutes gives the impression the entire movie will be non-stop action, but fortunately — or unfortunately, depending on your thirst for stunts and fights — a deeper story lies behind the action.

Long lulls during the middle of the movie provide necessary plot development. THE MOVIE picks up eight years after “The Dark Knight” leaves off. Batman no longer exists and Bruce Wayne becomes a recluse. Harvey Dent is painted as a martyr and a hero — and in the eyes of the Gotham citiSee BATMAN | Page A5

ure of 14 dead given by police in Aurora, a suburb east of Denver. Crowds of worried family members and friends were gathering at Denver-area hospitals, hoping to hear about their loved ones. According to images broadcast by local television, some held their heads down, and rocked back and forth as they sat on the sidewalk, as the sun rose. The shooting came minutes after the 12:05 a.m. premiere showVol. 114, No. 186

ing of the widely anticipated premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises.” Eyewitnesses said the gunman entered the movie theater through the emergency exit door near the front of the screen in theater No. 9 at the Century 16 in Aurora. A witness, who declined to be identified, told the Los Angeles Times that the gunman then “threw a canister across the theater,” unleashing gas, “then started shooting.”

Water rate discussions bubbled to the surface again Thursday as Iola City Council members continued looking at the city’s 2013 budget. At issue for the Council is whether water rates should escalate again in order to further replenish reserves, and potentially transfer up to $200,000 into the city’s general fund. Such a concept was proposed by City Administrator Carl Slaugh at Thursday’s budget workshop. Over the past several years, the water fund had been hemorrhaging money, and required transfers from other utility reserves in order to stay out of the

red. Council members approved in September an 18-percent water rate hike — the first rate increase since 2005. Slaugh said another rate adjustment is necessary because while the fund is no longer losing money, it has not grown enough to fund further repairs and upgrades to the water line system. Further, Slaugh said the water fund should be on equal footing, responsibility-wise, for the city’s general fund. The city supplements its general fund with utility reserves — such as natural gas, electricity and ideally, water — in order to keep property taxes lower than See RATES | Page A5

will,” Adams postulated. “But they don’t want to haul water.” “That’s for sure,” chimed in Thompson. “I talked to a couple of farmers who said they were thinking about selling their herds — cows and calves,” Adams added. “There will be more talking about it if we don’t get some good rains soon.” The “pop-up shower,” as he called Wednesday’s rain that produced a smidgen in Iola and up to an inch and a half in some isolated parts of the county, “helps a little,” if nothing more than to soothe frayed nerves, Adams said, but allowed searing days forecast for the next week would quickly erase memories of the shower.

H CRP “What we need is a couple of inches one day and another couple of inches several days right after that to fill the ponds,” he said. Rain of any consequence would be too late for the corn crop, but a good soaking rain and cooler weather would salvage some of the soybeans. “The drought is widespread,” added Adams. “It’s not just here, it’s also bonedry in Illinois and Iowa, where the big corn crops are.” AGRICULTURE is interwoven, by weather conditions and by dependence of one phase on another. “Corn prices are going up, which is forcing down beef prices,” Adams observed. “We’re probably going to see $8 or $9 (a bushel)

corn by harvest,” which will make fattening steers sent to feedlots more expensive. That has caused prices to decline for yearlings coming off grass, earlier than usual because of singed pastures. That’s a double whammy since weights also are off by 25 to 50 pounds at 750, or less. “The market is off $20 to $25 (a hundredweight) for steers due to high grain prices” that are predicted to climb even higher, Adams said. Last year’s drought also took a bite out of national beef numbers, which left the United States with the fewest cattle on hoof this year since 1974, Adams said. “We thought we’d see higher prices this summer

sale of state real estate. The increases in employer contributions — which are now at 4 percent of wages — would begin in the year 2014 and increase each year until they reach the actuarily required rate. Estimates are that these increases will mean more than $500 million over the next 10 years, bringing the total income from this source to about $10 billion over the next 10 years. Increases in worker contributions for those hired before 2009 would be from 4 percent of wages to 5 percent in 2014 and 6 percent in 2015 and thereafter — except that these workers would have a choice between leaving their contribution rate at 4 percent and accepting a 20 percent lower pension upon retirement. Beginning in 2015, new public employees will have

because of the (lower) numbers,” but the widespread failure of the corn crop turned that prediction on its ear, he said. For example, a few weeks ago August futures for feeder steers was $1.65 a pound; Thursday it was $1.39. A third consideration for farmers is that there wasn’t a great amount of hay carried over. Rain shut off in mid-May and the hay harvest came several weeks early when the drought started to turn meadows to tender. To offset the short hay crop, many farmers baled straw after wheat harvest, but it is a poor substitute for good prairie grass. “I figure we’re two weeks from hitting the critical point,” Adams said, if heat and drought continue as

Save Your Marriage Hire A Painter a hybrid retirement plan which combines the benefits of a defined benefit plan (which guarantees a specific pension rate) and a defined contribution plan which will guarantee a pension based on a 5.25 percent return on the pension fund but pays a higher pension if the fund’s return is higher. The effect will be to give retirees the benefit of higher earnings but to only guarantee a pension based on a 5.25 percent return. The current KPERS pension payments are based on an 8.5 percent return, which is greater than most current investments now pay. The high earnings assumption explains about 40 percent of the reason why the current retirement fund is under-funded by $8.3 billion, Sen. King said. Another 40 percent of the underfunding is explained by fact that the Legislature has never paid into the pen-

Producers without livestock may rent or lease haying privileges. Emergency grazing is approved until Sept. 30. Participants must leave at least 25 percent of each field or contiguous CRP fields ungrazed for wildlife, or graze not more than 75 percent of the stocking rate. All livestock must be removed by the end of this grazing period. Producers without livestock may rent or lease grazing privileges.

IN THE 10 years he’s owned a share of the Gas livestock sale, Adams has seen ups and downs. About 1,500 head pranced through the sale ring Friday afternoon, within a couple of hundred of the largest number sold in Gas this year. “The top so far was 1,700 when we had the Kansas auctioneer contest here in late January,” he said. “Our biggest sale since I’ve been here was 2,000 head in January 2005.” If drought and heat don’t abate soon, the number of cattle offered for sale will climb by the week. Farmers are a resilient lot, but there is a limit to their ability to cope.

Windsor Place…

Compassionate care. Close to home. “After my brother died, I really wanted to move my mom from Independence to Iola. Windsor Place made the move very easy for Mom. They take very good care of her. She really enjoys the food. Windsor Place has such a bright and cheery atmosphere and the staff gets along and works well together. I would definitely recommend Windsor Place to others.” Dixie Ward – Daughter of Beth Erbe, Resident at Windsor Place Beth Erbe was living in a nursing center in Independence, Kansas. This was an ideal situation since her son, her primary caregiver, was always nearby. Plus, Beth liked living in her hometown. But, when Beth’s son passed away, her daughter, Dixie Ward, really wanted her mom to be closer to Colony where she lived. That’s when Dixie moved Beth to Windsor Place in Iola. Windsor Place was a natural choice. Dixie was already familiar with the services available and the

quality of care offered at Windsor Place. Her mother-in-law was once a resident here and her daughter, Diane, works in the dietary department. Dixie was concerned about how Beth might react to the move since she had been a resident of Independence for so many years. But, Dixie is pleased to report that the transition went very smoothly.

Opinion

Republican leader warns of radicals’ attacks on Kansas By SEN. STEVE MORRIS President of the Kansas Senate

It was once called, “political silly season,” a term used to describe the time when candidates or their supporters would resort to extreme — sometimes laughable — tactics to get attention for their election. The Kansas political silly season has arrived. The problem? This year, nobody is laughing. Every election is important. But, the stakes for Kansas could not be higher. Right now, wellfunded outside special interest groups are busy spending millions of dollars — a record in Kansas politics — to defeat incumbent senators who put their local communities above the agendas of these special interest groups.   It’s these outside special interest groups with their Washington, D.C.-style politics and deficit spending that are driving our state over a financial cliff, creating a $2.7 billion deficit and hoping that Kansans like us don’t notice. An independent, nonpar-

Steve Morris Kansas Senate tisan analysis confirms what we already know about their plan. Our property taxes will rise. Our sales taxes will increase. Our schools will be consolidated or closed because 40 percent of their current budgets could get wiped out. This is not responsible state government. This is not the legacy of Eisenhower Republican values that our parents and grandparents taught us to believe in. Some have promised these new initiatives will pump adrenaline into the Kansas economy, yet their own projections indicate job gains of a mere 20,000 over the next few years. The Kansas Economic Policy Coun-

cil has done the math. It will take 550,000 jobs, earning $50,000 each per year, to replace the revenue loss from their newest tax plan. That would take a growth rate in Kansas five times that of Texas’ recent growth rate — a state often cited as a success story, but a state that has little in common with Kansas and the values we cherish here. One of these special interest groups, Virginia-headquartered Americans for Prosperity, even resorted to sending out postcards attacking Republican legislators for supporting “Obamacare.” However, a look at the voting record will show that every Republican in the Kansas Senate voted against Obamacare by passing the Kansas Health Care Freedom Act and is standing in direct opposition to the President’s healthcare plan. Kansas is a long way from Texas and it’s a long way from Virginia. It begs the question, why are groups from these other states spending record amounts of money this cycle to confuse

Outside special interest groups are busy spending millions of dollars to defeat incumbent senators. These interest groups are driving our state over a financial cliff, creating a $2.7 billion deficit and hoping that Kansans like us don’t notice. voters in an attempt to buy our elections? Right now, the very senators who are under attack are the ones who are working hardest to ensure a bright future for our state, our children and our grandchildren. We have pushed for responsible tax reform, including property tax relief. We developed the Kansas Works plan to bring thousands of manufacturing jobs back to Kansas from places like China and Mexico. We fought to restore dollars to our local schools after $18,000 had been cut from every Kansas classroom. POLITICS CAN BE a rough

business, but don’t be fooled by these desperate, deceitful tactics. Kansas elections and our elected officials are not for sale. When Kansans go to the polls on Aug. 7, they can either vote for rubberstamp majorities, or they can join me in taking a stand for our local communities and protecting their voice — the Kansas voice — in the legislative process. No matter how much money these outside groups pour into our state, we will always have something more powerful — our vote. On Tuesday, Aug. 7, I hope you will join me in exercising your right to vote because Kansas values are just too important.

Letters to the editor Dear editor,

I have known and associated with Ed Bideau, both professionally and personally, for over 35 years. Not once during that time have I ever known him to speak a less than totally truthful statement or engage in any activity which was less than totally honest and ethical.      Ed has always been strongly supportive of law enforcement, both as a county attorney and as a state legislator.  I believe he is a very upstanding and honest person who will have the best interests of the taxpayers as his No. 1 priority.    I strongly recommend that every voter cast their vote for Ed Bideau.  Ralph Romig, Iola, Kan.

work on our much needed concerns of Kansas. Ed is very much a leader and we know he will help craft legislation to solve any problems faced by the people of District 9 and the state of Kansas. I (Cathy) have taught with Margaret Bideau for over 20 years and have had the privilege of knowing their close-knit family. The Bideaus are known to be very compassionate people who are involved with community service and leadership roles. One person can make a difference and we think Ed Bideau is that person! Please join us in voting for Ed Bideau and help make Kansas better. Respectfully, Jack and Cathy Morrell, Iola, Kan.

Dear editor,

Dear editor,

We are writing to endorse Ed Bideau for representative, Kansas House, 9th District. We have known Ed Bideau and his wife, Margaret, for over 20 years. We know him to be an honorable and thoughtful person who has high standards of integrity. Ed will examine each piece of legislation to make the best decisions for his constituents of District 9. He will work long hours to study the effects of any legislation that might have an impact on our district. Since he has served in the House of Representatives before, he will have the experience needed to understand how the legislative process works to better enable him to get right to

I am compelled to join others in endorsing Ed Bideau for state representative. I have known Ed for many, many years. I also worked for his dad, Edwin H. Bideau II, as office manager in the Bideau Insurance Agency. I knew his mother, Beverly, very well and adored her.   Ed and Margaret are both very upstanding citizens of the best kind. And, I know that Ed will be the best kind of state representative we could ever ask for.  I admire the entire Bideau family.   Vote for Ed Bideau. He is the best. Carolyn S. Mynatt, LaHarpe, Kan.

Wildfire scene surreal I had never seen what a massive wildfire can do until last week when we drove a few miles north of Ruidoso, N.M., to see devastation left by the Little Bear Wildfire. The fire burned more than 70 square miles of mountainsides, leaving 240 homes charred heaps, charcoal trunks of pine trees and a barren forest floor in its wake. We stopped several times to watch disaster relief crews work. Among their chores was felling trees along side roads. Remarkably, it rained a couple of days while we were visiting daughter Brenda and family in Roswell, where 10 inches in a year is considered pretty good. Rain is usually considered a blessing for the sparse vegetation that keeps the high plains of eastern New Mexico from being a fullfledge desert. However, this rain came cascading down mountainsides laid bare of vegetation by the wildfires. The fine silt carried off made for thick, ugly quagmires where in better times would have been clear, babbling brooks flowing

At Week’s End Bob Johnson over rocky bottoms. Our sporadic grass fires in Allen County pale in comparison to the flames that laid waste in south central New Mexico, where Smokey Bear’s admonition to “Be careful with fires” takes on a heightened significance.

Letter to the editor Dear editor,

In 2005 Tom Williams took the office of sheriff of Allen County. Without going into old history, there were numerous problems facing the citizens, the department, and the commissioners in trying to deal with those problems. One problem that was very blatant was the vehicle inventory that was left from the prior administration. There was only one vehicle that was road worthy, and most vehicles were not only dangerous to drive but were not dependable to get to where they needed to be at any given time. The previous year’s budget for vehicle repairs as well as the two years prior to that would have actually been enough to replace vehicles. The effect of the cost of those repairs was one of many driving forces into why the prior administration was always running into a deficit expenditure. It was apparent that the department’s fleet had to be upgraded for safety and for costs. The question was how to do so in an economically sound way. Many options were considered, the new sheriff (Tom) actually drove his own vehicle for the first year at his own expense. One recommendation by the commissioners was to change the fleet to pickup trucks or SUVs. Some of the pros to this were that the trucks would hold up better under patrol conditions, and that the resale value of the pickups would be higher than sedans. One concern was that the pickups would cost more. The big picture was not the initial costs but the overall costs of ownership. Sheriff Williams found a way to reduce the initial cost of the pickups and it was decided to slowly rotate the fleet to pickups and new vehicles. Since that first year the county has purchased one or two

vehicles for the sheriff ’s department in an effort to keep the vehicles not only roadworthy for safety but also improve the resale value. The department currently has nine officers and each officer has an assigned vehicle. There is one more vehicle for an open position that is not assigned and according to Sheriff Williams will not be filled under the current administration. There is also an older pickup that is assigned to the reserves for their use during public functions. One of many reasons the vehicles are assigned to an officer is that the upkeep and care is better by doing so. This helps again with the potential resale of the vehicles during change-outs. Last month the sheriff ’s office sold two pickups that were on the rotation cycle that began eight years ago. One vehicle was sold for $6,507 that had 151,988 miles, the other with 124,824 miles sold for $7,807. The initial purchase costs of the two vehicles were about $21,000 a piece. This turns out to be from the initial costs for purchase a huge bang for the taxpayers’ dollars. To give a bit more insight an older Crown Vic with similar miles was sold for $1,000. As this primary election season

nears I have had conversations with many voters and Sheriff Williams has been in my opinion unfairly criticized for the style and number of vehicles in his department. I think it is only fair voters understand this current vehicle policy was developed at the commissioners’ office and Sheriff Williams somewhat reluctantly agreed. The true test of policy is over a period of time and this policy has proven to be an effective and efficient use of county tax dollars. In my time of working with Sheriff Williams I found him always to be conservative, diligent and very conscience of spending tax dollars. In fact he actually turned down and would not accept a pay raise in his first year in office. He felt strongly that the money would be better utilized in other areas of his department. Please join with me to elect Tom Williams as county commissioner, District 2. As a county we are fortunate to have a candidate with his level of experience, wisdom, knowledge, character and genuine care for the betterment of county government. Kent Thompson, LaHarpe, Kan.

H Plan

zens, Batman is at fault for his death. But the threat of a terrorist, Bane, destroying Batman’s beloved city, forces him out of retirement. A little insider’s tip to seeing this movie — watch “Batman Begins,” the first movie. The movie can still be enjoyable without having seen the first movie, but for plot reasons it would be preferred. Christian Bale, as always, pulls off Bruce Wayne aka Batman flawlessly. The audience watches as the legendary hero is broken, then they root for him as he tries to find the pieces he needs to pull himself back together. Other veterans such as Gary Oldman as commissioner James Gordon, Mor-

gan Freeman as Lucius Fox, and notably the best Alfred since the beginning of the Batman saga in 1989 played by Michael Caine, all made their necessary appearances in the film. Newcomers came to the movie as well. Anne Hathaway plays Selina Kyle, aka the jewel thief known as Catwoman. The role was originally played by Michelle Pfeiffer in the 1992 film “Batman Returns.” In “The Dark Knight Rises,” Catwoman takes on a hidden humane demeanor — not to mention the effect she will have on women around the world who will now start hitting the gym in hopes that maybe one day they, too, can fit into that unforgiving cat-suit. Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard and Joseph Gordon-

Levitt, all “Inception” veterans, played vital characters in the movie. Hardy, who plays Bane, is considerably more buff — and scarier — in this movie. Gordon-Levitt does a fantastic job growing into a foil-like character to Bruce Wayne throughout the movie, which leaves the audience begging the question of a possible spin-off with the actor. All Bat-fans will always have their preferred Batman, whether it is Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney or the current Christian Bale. It must be noted though that out of six Batman movies, Bale was the only three-time returning character — leaving this current generation loyal to their hero.

What Should We Believe?

To depend only on our own intellect and intuition may not always be the best method for developing our religious beliefs. We have to be careful not to use our religious views to suit our own needs and desires; just because we believe in something doesn’t necessarily make it right. Knowing that most people consider themselves to be ethical, we must be careful not to rationalize all of our behavior. The Bible tells us, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way,” (Proverbs 3:5,6). God has given us the Holy Bible, which is the basis for our beliefs and guide for living our lives according to His will. In the Bible, not only does God tell us how to obtain everlasting life, He has given us wonderful examples for our daily living. Everything in the Scriptures is God’s Word. All of it is useful for teaching and helping people, correcting them and showing them how to live righteously.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. K.J.V. Psalm 119:105

ther, a move to stage two would feature additional city responses. The city would stop washing its vehicles and cease watering city grounds. In addition, along city streets, those who enjoy a green lawn would be asked to water their gardens on either even or odd number days depending on what side of the street someone lives on.

ing swimming pools would be allowed only once a week and then only after sunset. In the unlikely event the situation were to turn critical, a water emergency would be declared. The city government would meet in public meeting to discuss the situation, inform the public and plan further actions. In addition the city would meet with large water users like Gates Corporation and Russell Stover Candies to discuss the status of water supplies and actions needed to help conserve remaining reserves. The average homeowner would be prohibited from any outdoor water activity. Waste of water would be strictly prohibited as well. For now, however, the city maintains its vigil over the situation. “We aren’t going to let this be a problem we can’t handle,” Ross said. “We know that things might continue to stay this way for a while. We hope it doesn’t, but if it does we will do everything we are supposed to, to take care of things.”

they otherwise would be. Slaugh said transferring funds from the water fund reserves would reduce the city’s dependence on reserves from the other utility funds. Slaugh’s explanation held little water for Council members Steve French, Kendall Callahan and Ken Rowe, who said any excess revenues should instead be earmarked for infrastructure and repairs. Approving a budget with Slaugh’s proposed water fund transfer would essentially be obligating the city to another water rate increase, Callahan said. The proposal was just that, Slaugh said: a proposal. If council members subsequently decline to increase water rates, the transfer would not occur. Mitch Phillips, Iola’s gas, water and wastewater department superintendent, said he was surprised to see the proposed transfer to the general fund, if for no other reason than any added revenues should go immediately into repairs and maintenance. “At first, I thought it was a typo,” Phillips said. “Then I realized it was supposed to be there.” “We don’t have enough money” to do all the repairs necessary to the existing

lines, Phillips said. For example, the city spent $15,000 over the past year alone on water Carl Slaugh clamps to repair line breaks, Phillips said. He pointed to one water line that dates back to 1900. Council members will consider the proposed transfer up until their Aug. 6 budget hearing. COUNCIL

were informed the 6 p.m. Aug. 6 budget hearing will be at the Iola Public Library meeting room. Slaugh also provided some other nuggets of information. From 2002 through 2010, the Social Security Index rose 24.3 percent. The city’s property tax mill levy, meanwhile, rose 18 percent, from 32 to 37 mills, Slaugh said. The city’s workforce, meanwhile, was pared over the same time period from 123 full-time employees to 105. Today, Iola has 95 fulltime employees and two vacant positions. Those numbers include seven 911 dispatchers who went from the city’s to the county’s employ in 2010.

reconciled and cleaned up as soon as possible,” the report said. Loyd identified the collections issue as a “material weakness” because it did not allow management or employees “to detect or correct misstatements on a timely basis.” “SIGNIFICANT deficiencies” are considered less severe than a material weakness, yet important enough to merit attention by city governors. In this case, Loyd said two bank accounts — one an Escrow account for the old IMP Boat site, the other an account to handle Community Development Block Grant funds for housing rehabilitation — were not a part of the city’s Incode General Ledger System, and thus not overseen or monitored by the City Council. The IMP account is a private purpose trust fund,

and had $20.80 worth of interest income activity in 2011. The housing grant account had $126,440.33 worth of activity, with the city receiving the state grant funds, then dispensing those funds to private contractors for housing rehabilitation. City Clerk Roxanne Hutton told the Register the housing grants account had been kept separate from the city’s general ledger because the city’s checking account can generate interest income. The city is prohibited from generating interest on the grant funds. Loyd also identified the city’s lack of a purchasing policy as a significant deficiency in 2011. Council members approved a purchasing policy earlier this year. He also recommended the city tighten other policies and procedures regarding the budget.

Iola A plays for zone title By JOCELYN SHEETS jocelyn@iolaregister.com

BURLINGTON — By the time this story reaches readers, Iola American Legion Post 15’s A team may have won a zone championship and a trip to state. But the A Indians don’t want to count their chickens before they are hatched. They defeated Burlington 12-1 in five innings Thursday night. That put them in Friday’s championship game of the Kansas American Legion Single A Zone 3 tournament. Burlington dropped into the

losers bracket final against Eureka, an 8-7 winner over Emporia Thursday night. Burlington, which beat Eureka in the opening round on Wednesday, and Eureka played at 6 p.m. Friday. The winner moved into the title game against Iola at 8 o’clock. If Iola won, the Indians are champions and advance to the state tournament next week in Pratt. If Iola lost Friday night, a second game is at 10 o’clock this morning to determine the championship. In Thursday night’s contest, Burlington scored a run in the top of the second to lead 1-0. It didn’t hold up very long. With one gone in Iola’s half of the second, Grayson Pearish singled, followed by a fielder’s choice by Eric Heffern. Thealvin Minor and Cole Morrison had back-toback singles and Drew Faulhaber reached on an error. Iola grabbed a 3-1 lead. That was

enough for starting pitcher Aaron Barclay. He and the A Indians’ defense kept Burlington’s offense under wraps the next three innings. Barclay allowed just one hit in the game. He walked three and struck out six. The Indians pushed their lead to 6-1 with three runs in the fourth. They closed the game in runrule fashion by scoring six runs in the bottom of the fifth. Morrison was 3-for-3 and drove in three runs. Caleb Vanatta connected for a double, two singles and three RBIs. Derrick Weir drove in two runs with a double. Pearish had a single and a triple. Heffern and Minor each had a single. Iola A was 17-6 heading into Friday’s championship game. The winner of Zone 3 advances to state, which begins Wednesday in Pratt.

AA Indians going about it the hard way By JOCELYN SHEETS jocelyn@iolaregister.com

BALDWIN — To win the 2012 KABA League Senior Division tournament, Iola American Legion Post 15’s AA Indians are going to have to do it the hard way. They will have to work their way through the losers bracket this weekend. Iola opened with a 13-5 victory over Burlington Thursday afternoon. But Thursday evening, the AA Indians’ rally fell short. They lost 10-7 to Osawatomie. The Indians (29-3) began their long journey with a 10-5 win over Baldwin at noon Friday. Theyplayed at 7:30 p.m. Friday against the winner of Garnett-Wellsville. Iola would have to win both games Friday to reach the losers bracket final, slated for 2 o’clock this afternoon at Baldwin Ball Complex. The loser of the winners bracket game between Ot-

tawa and Osawatomie on Friday would be waiting there. Whichever team comes out of the losers bracket final would have to beat the winner of Ottawa-Osawatomie twice to claim the league tournament title. That means to win the tournament, Iola will have to win five games — two Friday and three today. The AA Indians have a history of doing that. They won a zone tournament last year coming out of the losers bracket. On Thursday, Iola came back from a 5-0 deficit to beat Burlington 13-5 in six innings. The Indians came up with four runs in the bottom of the third in response to Burlington’s four runs. With one out, Levi Ashmore singled and stole second base and Clint Heffern walked. Dalton Smith drove in a run on a base hit. Drew Walden reached on an

error and Corey Taylor delivered a three-run double. Iola claimed the lead with two runs in the fourth. Devon Conner singled and scored on a triple by Ashmore, who came in on a sacrifice fly by Heffern. Taking advantage of five walks and a hit batter, the Indians came through with five hits and plated seven runs in the fifth. Iola won by a run rule. Mason Coons was the winning pitcher, allowing seven hits, walking one and striking out three. Ashmore had a single and a triple and Taylor had a single and a double. Smith, Coons and Conner each hit two singles. Braden Larson tripled. Against Osawatomie, Iola AA jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Osawatomie scored four runs in the third and two in the fourth for a 6-3 lead. It stayed in front, thwarting Iola’s comeback

Saudi’s Olympic opening to women is a small step CAIRO (AP) — Across the world, word that Saudi Arabia would send women athletes to the Olympics for the first time immediately rocketed to the top of websites and broadcasts. In Saudi Arabia’s official media: Not even a hint. The state-sponsored silent treatment was a lesson into the deep intricacies and sensitivities inside the kingdom as it took another measured step away from its ultraconservative traditions. While Saudi rulers found room to accommodate the demands of the International Olympic Committee to include women athletes, they also clearly acknowledged that — in their view at least — this did not merit billing as a pivotal moment of reform in a nation that still bans women from driving or traveling without the approval of a male guardian. “It does not change the fact that Saudi women are not free to move and to choose,” said political analyst Mona Abass in neighboring Bahrain. “The Saudis may use it to boost their image, but it changes little.” Even the two athletes selected to compete under the Saudi flag — 800-meter runner Sarah Attar from Pepperdine University in California and Wodjan Ali Se-

raj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani in judo — live outside the kingdom and carry almost no influence as sports figures. There is no other choice: Women sports remain nearly an underground activity in Saudi Arabia. Ahmed al-Marzooqi, editor of a website that aims to cover women and men’s sporting events in Saudi Arabia, viewed last week’s announcement as mostly an attempt to quiet international pressure on the lone nation trying to stick with an all-male Olympic team. The other former holdouts, Brunei and Qatar, had already added women Olympic athletes — with Qatar even planning to have a woman carry its flag in London later this month. “We are still disappointed here,” al-Marzooqi said from the Saudi city of Jiddah. “I should be happy for them, but this will do nothing for women who want to be in sports in Saudi Arabia.” Still, the opening is not without significance. The Saudi decision must have received at least some nod from the nation’s Islamic religious establishment, which hold de facto veto power over nearly all key moves by the Western-allied monarchy and gives the royal court its legitimacy to rule over a nation with Islam’s holiest sites. The inherent two-way tug —

change-resistant clerics and leaders sensing reform pressures from the streets — has allowed enough slack for some slow-paced movement. King Abdullah has promised to allow women to run and vote in municipal elections in 2015. He also has tried to rein in the country’s feared morality police while challenges to the established order are growing bolder from a population, nearly half of which is under the age of 30. Saudi women activists have gotten behind the wheel to oppose the driving ban, and bloggers churn out manifestos about how the Arab Spring will one day hit Saudi shores. “If Saudi does field women athletes, it is immensely interesting,” said Simon Henderson, a Saudi affairs expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. “This flies against the traditions of having a woman not make a public display of herself or mixing with men. Now, the world could see women marching with men in the opening ceremony and — even more — women running in competition.” It’s impossible to gauge the internal discussions before the Saudi Olympic decision, but Henderson speculated it could have been influenced by Abdullah’s daughter, Adila, who has been an outspoken advocate of reforms

We are still disappointed here. I should be happy for them, but this will do nothing for women who want to be in sports in Saudi Arabia. — Ahmed al-Marzooqi, Saudi Arabia sports editor

such as ending the driving ban on women. On the other end of the spectrum, senior Saudi clerics have issued a host of edicts against almost all types of sporting activities for women. “Of course this will bring backlash from many religious leaders,” said Ali al-Ahmed, director of the Washington-based Institute of Gulf Affairs that has been behind the “No Women No Play” campaign that called for an Olympic ban for Saudi Arabia if it resisted adding women. “This fight is far from over.” As recently as April, a Saudi newspaper quoted the head of the Saudi Olympic Committee as saying he did not approve of sending women to the Olympics — suggesting instead they could compete on their own under a neutral flag. A similar arrangement was

made at the Youth Olympics in 2010 for Saudi equestrian competitor Dalma Rushdi Malhas, who won a bronze medal in show jumping. “Allowing women to compete under the Saudi flag in the London Games will set an important precedent,” said Christoph Wilcke, senior Middle East researcher at New York-based Human Rights Watch. “But without policy changes to allow women and girls to play sports and compete within the kingdom, little can change for millions of women and girls deprived of sporting opportunities.” For the wider Muslim world region, the Saudi decision also is unlikely to have a transformative sweep since the kingdom trailed behind even Afghanistan in opening to women sports. Increasing numbers are taking part in regional sports competition and there are few sports Muslim women aren’t represented in — with Afghanis boxing, Pakistanis playing cricket and Emirates in the Arabian Gulf taking up football and weightlifting. Iran, too, is considered one of the growing powers in women’s rugby in Asia. Most experts acknowledged this progress is fragile and vulnerable to age-old cultural pressures. Weightlifters in the United Arab Emirates have been attacked on social media and the Kuwaiti soccer team was denounced several years ago on its return from a tournament by conservative lawmakers who want a ban on all international competitions. In Iraq, a women’s wrestling club disbanded in 2009 after receiving death threats from religious groups. “This is a first small step,” said Raija Mattila, co-chairman of the Finland-based International Working Group on Women and Sport. “It’s good for the international stage, but we hope that it opens up sports opportunities for women and girls inside Saudi Arabia. So this is just a small first step.”

Session looks at transparency in government By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

About 4,000 governmental bodies in Kansas are affected by provisions of the state’s open meetings and records acts, Lisa Mendoza told government officials and newspaper reporters Thursday afternoon at Allen Community College. “Effective government depends on an informed electorate,” said Mendoza, an assistant Kansas attorney general. All tax-supported bodies and their subordinate groups are by law required to abide by two acts. Their reach goes beyond what normally are thought of as meetings, Mendoza added. Also covered are any interactive communications of members of bodies, such things as telephone calls, emails, Twitter and Skype exchanges. “The public has the right to observe and listen” to anything governing bodies and their members discuss and consider, Mendoza said. The exception is when a majority of a body isn’t involved. A majority is defined as half of the body plus one. In the Iola council’s case, that is five members; for the Allen County commission, two. Mendoza also pointed

Council talks open meetings — privately Mixing equal parts irony and unfortunate timing, Iola City Council members gathered Thursday in a special meeting to discuss the Kansas Open Meetings Act. They did so privately. Because the discussion dealt with what City Attorney Chuck Apt described as “attorneyclient” matters related

out affected bodies are under no obligation to give notice of meetings unless requested to do so. However, she said it was good practice in light of transparency for bodies to make efforts to inform the public of when meetings are scheduled, particularly those called at non-regular times. Records must be kept of when executive, or secret, sessions are called. The public may record proceedings of a meeting, with the consideration that recording devices and extension cords must be situated so they don’t interfere with a meeting’s progress. Public meetings are just

to KOMA, council members voted to have it in a private, or executive, session. Meanwhile, officials from the Kansas attorney general’s office were in Iola at a separate venue Thursday to discuss open meetings and records. Council members did not comment about the discussion after the 45-minute meeting.

that, not public forums, but “it is a good idea to have a public comment period,” she said, during which those wanting to have a say may. Limiting comment is perfectly legal, but should be done equitably, Mendoza said. Executive sessions are limited to specific discussions and may last only as long as the originating vote approves. Extensions may occur, but only after another public vote is taken. SEVEN TOPICS are legal fodder for secret meetings. They are: — Personnel matters of non-elected personnel — employees or prospective em-

ployees of a governing body. — Consultations with an attorney for the body that would be considered privileged in the attorney-client relationship. No one other than parties identified as clients and the attorney may be present. — Matters relating to employer-employee negotiations. — Confidential data relating to financial affairs or trade secrets of corporations, partnerships, trusts or individual proprietorships. — Matters relating to actions adversely or favorably affecting a person as student, patient or resident of a public institution, although that person may request a public hearing. — Preliminary discussions relating to the acquisition of real property. — Security matters relating to a public body or agency. THE KANSAS Open Records Act is a second measure meant to give openness and transparency to all done by public bodies. The act “is a framework to provide information to the public,” Mendoza said. Anyone may request information, including citizens of other states and countries. Most records are open

to the public. Some may be closed, depending on circumstances. The act gives 52 discretionary reasons to close records. Another 300 are statutorily closed. Mendoza said most public bodies had a person designated as a public information officer who handled requests for information. Once a request is made, the act provides three business days for response. Charges may be made for copying information, but it’s better public service “to avoid charging whenever you can,” Mendoza said. THE THREE-HOUR fo-

rum was one of several regional events arranged by Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt and the Kansas Sunshine Coalition, a group that encourages open government. On hand here representing the coalition were Ron Keefover, public informa-

tion officer for the Kansas Judicial Branch, and Doug Anstaett, executive director of the Kansas Press Association. They were joined on a discussion panel by Bob Johnson, Register city editor, and Lisa Johnson, Franklin County counselor.

Coolant might not help hot engine Dear Tom and Ray:

I am a rural mail carrier and have a question about engine coolants. As a mail carrier, I spend a tremendous amount of time on hot asphalt at very slow speeds, and often sitting still. Are there any engine coolants that are capable of making an engine run cooler? My engine runs a little hotter than I am comfortable with. It doesn’t overheat, but it reaches higher temps than it does when traveling down the road at 55 mph. If no such coolant exists, are there

Car Talk

Tom and Ray Magliozzi any “tricks” that could be applied to get the desired result? -- Josh TOM: There’s really nothing you can put in there to make it run cooler, Josh -- unless you want to pack the radiator with blocks of dry ice. RAY: It’s more likely that

your radiator has seen better days. So the first thing I’d suggest is having your radiator inspected and flow-tested. Make sure it’s not corroded and that you’re moving plenty of coolant through it. TOM: You can have someone check your thermostat, too, to make sure it’s opening correctly and isn’t sticking. A sticky thermostat can make a car run hot in stop-and-go driving. So can a non-functioning cooling fan. RAY: If all of that stuff

checks out OK, your one other option is to install an auxiliary cooling fan. TOM: Basically, that’s an extra electric fan that mounts on the front side of the radiator (your regular cooling fan is on the back side). An auxiliary fan will give you a little extra cooling in stop-and-go driving, which is where you need it. RAY: But other than that, there’s no magic potion, Josh. Except maybe the acid bath they’re going to use to clean out your corroded radiator. Good luck.

Sudoku is like a crossword puzzle, but uses numbers instead of words. The puzzle is a box of 81 squares, subdivided into 3x3 cubes of 9 squares each. Some squares are filled in with numbers. The rest should be filled in by the puzzler. Fill in the blank squares allowing the numbers 1-9 to appear only once in every row, once in every column and once in every 3x3 box. One-star puzzles are for beginners, and the difficulty gradually increases through the week to a very challenging fivestar puzzle.

John Clark/NASCAR This Week

Former NASCAR Cup champion Jeff Gordon knows that with seven races before the Chase he’s going to have to win more than once to get into the socalled playoffs. A runner-up finish last year at Indianapolis could be something Gordon can build on as the series comes to the fabled track this week.

A TOUGH TASK

Jeff Gordon’s Chase hopes come down to getting wins By Monte Dutton

NASCAR This Week

LOUDON, N.H. — Never has four-time champion Jeff Gordon gone through a season like this one. Gordon, who turns 41 on Aug. 4, failed to make the Chase, NASCAR’s version of what other sports call playoffs, in 2005, but that year he finished 11th in the final points standings. At present he is 17th, winless and 89 points out of the top 10. In a span of seven races, the chance of Gordon reaching the top 10 (by regular season’s end) is almost nil. He could make the Chase as a wild card, but that would almost certainly require a pair of victories. Gordon finished sixth in the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, but at this point, it makes little difference. Gordon must win and knows it. Indianapolis Motor Speedway is next up on the schedule July 29. Gordon is the only NASCAR driver with four Brickyard victories. He can ill afford to let this one pass without winning a fifth. “We’ve made some gains this year, and the speed has

shown many times, just the results haven’t,” Gordon said. “But I think back to last year at Indianapolis and how good we were, and that’s what memory I’m going to have going in there this year; how can we be that good, and improve on our performance versus our competition in these next several weeks.” Gordon finished second to upset winner Paul Menard at Indianapolis last year. “The urgency to win starts in Daytona in February, so we’re not doing anything different than we have all year long,” Gordon said. “We’re just trying to cross our T’s and dot our I’s and just do everything right. We know how hard it is to win, and we also know how easy it can be when you do things right and have a fast race car. “Is there urgency? Yeah, absolutely. One win is going to be great, but it’s still not going to get us into the Chase, I don’t believe. We know we’ve got to put a string of races together here to get ourselves in that opportunity to win more than one race.” It’s quite a challenge, even for one of NASCAR’s all-time greats, and the regular season is winding down.

Biffle Had S.C. Success After Darlington Raceway lost one of its two annual races and saw that one moved to the night before Mother’s Day, Greg Biffle won the first two races, each known as the Dodge Charger 500. Biffle won in 2005 and 2006. No Ford driver has won at Darlington since. In the six races since, Chevy drivers have won four times and Toyota drivers twice.

OK, so it really isn’t a feud. A feud would be better. If the driver and his crew chief had feuded over whether to change two or four tires, Hamlin probably would’ve won the Lenox 301. Instead, they misunderstood each other, apparently on the meaning of the numerals “2” and “4.” NASCAR This Week’s Monte Dutton gives his take: “Both were very graceful afterward. Perhaps this blunder will prevent another one later on.”

By Monte Dutton

NASCAR This Week

LOUDON, N.H. — In the unlikely event that A.J. Allmendinger manages to clear himself of a failed drug test, his spot in Penske Racing’s No. 22 Dodge is secure until the end of the season. Roger Penske holds an option on Allmendinger’s services for 2013, but first Allmendinger must hope that an inexplicable error caused his suspension by NASCAR officials in the first place. Sam Hornish Jr. has substituted for Allmendinger since the NASCAR ruling came down in Daytona Beach and will Penske likely drive the car at Indianapolis in two weeks if a second test, the “B” sample, doesn’t come back clean. Penske and his team president, Tim Cindric, were on hand at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and voiced support for Allmendinger, vowing not to rush to judgment. Assuming the “A” sample’s analysis is confirmed — and most consider that a foregone conclusion — Allmendinger can regain his eligibility to compete by complying with a NASCAR reinstatement program. Whether his career in NASCAR can withstand the stigma attached to a positive drug test remains to be seen. That’s what teammate Brad Keselowski was talking about when he said the test result was “a death sentence” for Allmendinger. Classy in defeat — It’s difficult to imagine Jeff Gordon going through a season like this one so far. But it’s hard to

imagine anyone else handling it with such grace. Gordon’s fourth Sprint Cup title was 11 years ago, which is to say it was a Winston Cup title. Gordon hasn’t won this season yet and ranks 17th in the standings, 183 points behind leader Matt Kenseth and 89 points out the top 10. With seven races remaining in the regular season, he probably needs at last two victories to earn one of the two wild-card slots in the Chase. “There are definitely moments in the heat of the moment, especially, when you sense the frustration and it comes out in things you say on the radio or how O ur you handle some of those situations behind closed John Clark/NASCAR This Week doors,” he said. “But, when it comes to how to handle it publicly, I just don’t think it does the team or me or A.J. Allmendinger has been off the track for the past two races because of a failed drug test. If he can clear up theYe testa with anybody any good to handle that negatively.” r!his B Simply incredible — Rare is a New Hampshire sample or go through a NASCAR-approved reinstatement program, Sunday that has a better Sprint Cup race than the he could return to the track.
