County STRUT YOUR STUFF hears budget requests

Allen County commissioners came to their meeting Tuesday with sharp pencils, and erasers. By the time they had completed a review of the 2013 budgets, they had cut 7 mills from the tax levy, and pared expenditures by $675,000. That left total expenditures at just under $12.7 million and the supportive levy at 10.182 mills. This year’s budget contains exRegister/Richard penditures of $11.73 million Luken and Whiteley of Le tax Roy. Whiteley was an ad valorem levy of 67.635. Commissioners said more surgery may await the budget when they meet against Tuesday. Their hope, mentioned several times, is to get the levy as close to last year’s as possible. If it remains above 70 mills, it will be the first ever to exceed that

Jason Nelson, Allen County ambulence director, told commissioners he made a point to to go on 45 of 750 county ambulance calls received thus far this year. Ray Whiteley “A second set of hands always is helpful,” Nelson said, and “it gives me an opportunity to observe what the others (ambulance personnel) are doing.” Nelson said by him going on calls, mostly injury accidents, he figured the county had saved $3,600 in overtime pay by not sending a second ambulance to provide additional personnel.

The recipe for a great dog is long and complicated, but we will start with the first 6 steps. Ingredients are: 1 Puppy, preferably healthy, from a reputable source. 1 Owner who really, really wants the puppy (because the effort to get to a great dog is enormous) 1 Veterinarian, a source of advice and care.

Directions: Step 1 - Love your pup; no hitting, kicking or teasing. Step 2 - Reward GOOD behavior, (actively look for opportunities) rather than punishing bad behavior Step 3 - Two seconds, that’s the amount of time you have to issue a praise/treat or correction; after that the pup has no idea what the treat or “no” is about. You, the owner, must be on the ball to do this on time. Step 4 - Play games that encourage good behavior, not bad. No tug of war, chasing or rough wrestling games with puppies. These encourage aggression and competition and may lead to dominance issues. Step 5 - Exercise the pup every day. Exercise leads to good behavior. Bad behavior happens when puppies try to entertain themselves instead of taking a nap. Exercise encourages napping, but don’t overtire the little guy or girl. Step 6 - Be consistent. All members of the household must agree on what is acceptable behavior and what commands to use. “Down” may mean “get down off the sofa” OR “lay down on the floor”, but not both. If mom says “no pets on the furniture”, Dad should not let little Rover sleep on the recliner (gender noun for exemplar purposes only). AGREE, already, either way. Well that’s the start of the “Great Dog Recipe”. We’ll continue to add ingredients and directions in upcoming columns. Consult the veterinarians at

Tea Party’s Cruz upsets Texas race By LISA MASCARO Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — In a long-shot victory that could help define the conservative tilt of the Senate, tea party-backed Ted Cruz defeated an establishment Republican on Tuesday in the hard-fought GOP primary runoff in Texas. Cruz’s win over Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst provides another example of the tea party movement’s influence on voters and turnout — even for a candidate who has never held elected office. Cruz will face Democrat Paul Sadler, a former state representative, in November, but is expected to have the advantage in the Republican-leaning state. The seat Ted Cruz was opened by the upcoming retirement of Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison. Dewhurst, who has been the state’s lieutenant governor since 2003, became the early favorite. The son of a Cuban immigrant, Cruz, 41, is far from the Washington outsider his upstart candidacy might convey — a point the Dewhurst campaign tried to amplify as outside polls showed Cruz making gains. The state’s former solicitor general, Cruz is a graduate of Princeton and

Harvard Law School. He became the first Latino to clerk for a chief justice of the Supreme Court before working for the Federal Trade Commission, the Justice Department and the 2000 GOP presidential ticket of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. More recently he has been in private practice in Houston, where he lives with his wife and two daughters. His arrival in the Senate would bolster the tea party flank, which could emerge from the fall election as a growing force in the chamber even if Republicans fail to net the handful of seats needed to wrest the majority from Democrats this fall. Stuart Rothenberg, editor of the nonpartisan Rothenberg Political Report, wrote Tuesday that the Texas candidates held few ideological differences — both want small government and have traditional values. “The difference between the two men is simple: Cruz is not willing to compromise even if it means being irrelevant to the legislative process,� Rothenberg wrote. A wealthy businessman, Dewhurst poured $11 million from his own fortune into the race, but that was matched by outside groups seeking to influence the outcome. The conservative Club for Growth spent more than $5 million against Dewhurst.


Sweet, playful, affectionate and loyal - Cricket is a dog who has it all! This beautiful young girl adores people, is very friendly to other dogs, and has only a polite curiosity to cats. We believe she is mostly Mountain Cur, which is a breed known for intelligence and a strong desire to please people.

More good news: Cricket can be yours without an adoption fee! The generous students and faculty of Iola Middle School raised the funds to pay all her costs. She will come to her new family already spayed and with shots up-to-date. Cricket is waiting, with eyes full of hope and a heart full of love. All she wants is a chance to give that love to someone of her own. Maybe that someone is you.

It’s up to you — a strong Kansas or a ravaged one Focusing on Kansas, AP writer John Hanna wrote Monday about the multi-state campaign to drive all of the moderates out of the Republican Party and defeat lawmakers who refuse to swear fealty to the radical right-wing agenda. He wrote of copy-cat campaigns in Missouri, Nebraska, Minnesota, New Mexico, Texas and his home state of Kansas. He found that radical groups such as the Club for Growth and Americans for Prosperity are spending millions to defeat several dozen moderate Republicans in the Midwest and South, targeting prominent lawmakers who hold committee chairmanships and other key posts. One of those being attacked viciously in Kansas is Sen. Steve Morris of Hugoton, who is president of the Kansas Senate and a major supporter of Kansas State University and the other Regents universities. One of the radicals running against a sitting moderate is Greg Smith who says it’s way past time for Kansans to elect more right-wing legislators. Hanna quotes him as saying, “If you don’t believe in that playbook, then why are you on the team?” The team’s captain is Gov. Sam Brownback, who has taken the unprecedented step of using his high office to campaign against Republican moderates and for the radicals he has pushed into races against them. Gov. Brownback doesn’t deny his complicity. He is attacking fellow Republicans, he said, because in resisting his proposals they are “promoting a Democrat agenda.” What Gov. Brownback means is that Senators Morris, Tim Owens and Dwayne Umbarger and other moderates resisted tax cuts so severe that they threaten financing for the public schools, the state’s universities, the state court system and the Department of Transportation. It is true that these basic state functions are also supported by the Democrats in the House and Senate — and were

all but universally supported by Kansas lawmakers of both parties until the last two election cycles. Hanna reported the Kansas Chamber of Commerce poured $163,000 into the effort to elect radical right candidates last year and that Koch Industries, Inc. of Wichita ponied up $36,000 for the cause. He also noted similar efforts have unseated moderates in Texas and Colorado and a similar campaign is under way against Sen. David Pearce in Missouri, who is chairman of the Senate’s Education Committee there. A radical group is spending $50,000 to unseat him. In Kansas, Hanna wrote, the radicals hope to elect enough fellow travelers to write laws restricting the ability of labor unions to raise money, “to remake the state’s appellate courts by providing for political appointment of judges and to enact more conservative social policy.” REGISTER READERS have a role to play in this battle. Traditional Republicans can follow the philosophies of Sen. Nancy Kassebaum, Sen. James B. Pearson, Sen. Robert Dole, Gov. Bill Graves and Iolans Senate President Bob Talkington and House education leader Denny Apt — just to mention a few outstanding moderate Republicans most will remember — and vote against this conspiracy to shrink Kansas government into impotence. Those who don’t know which candidates will work for a strong Kansas if elected can find a starter list by calling up Citizens For Higher Education on their computers. There they will find the names of John Coen, a candidate for this senate district, and Judy Brigham, a candidate for the House. Those with friends in the new District 15, will find Dwayne Umbarger chosen and can give him a boost. This is a very important primary election. The essential personality of the Kansas Republican Party is at stake. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

Farming: A risky business The current heat and drought in America’s heartland is taxing to everyone, but no one feels the effects of this kind of weather more than farmers. As the number of farmers has declined in the United States, fewer people understand the financial risks farmers take every year and the devastating impact weather like we’re having this year can have on a farming operation. In tight economic times, it becomes easier to criticize federal farm policies such as crop insurance, without really understanding that many of those programs are what ensures that Americans have a reliable, affordable supply of food. Recent news reports offer a reminder of the impact of one variable over which farmers have no control: the weather. The Midwest corn crop is close to a total loss and soybeans are shriveling in the sun. Cattlemen are being forced to sell their cattle sooner than they want because there isn’t enough grass in the pastures to sustain them. In many cases, those forced sales are more than a one-year setback. An Associated Press story recently explained how it will take years for pastures to recover from the drought and for farmers to rebuild cow-calf herds. The story focused on one Kansas rancher who had carefully bred cattle for years to build a strong herd, much of which he now must sell off. He can rebuild his herd by buying

cattle, but it will take far longer to replace the genetic breeding that went into his current herd. CROP PRICES are high, but most farmers will have no fall crops to sell. Federal crop insurance payments will be enough to repay their production loans and allow them to plant again next year but probably not enough to cover many other expenses such as fuel and machinery costs. There almost certainly are ways to improve crop insurance programs and make them less costly for taxpayers, but revisions to those programs need to recognize the ways farming differs from many other businesses. Farmers can be required to pay a higher percentage of their crop insurance premiums, but that cost must be passed on in the price of food or farmers will be driven out of business because they can’t make a profit. Farmers can respond somewhat to market demands, but no amount of better business management can prevent the kind of devastation that Mother Nature is visiting on farmers this year. An important part — perhaps the most important part — of U.S. farm policy is to help American farmers stay in business so they can provide the food and fiber on which the nation depends. A year like this offers a strong reminder of the risks of farming, as well as the critical role farmers play. — The Lawrence Journal-World

Letters to the editor Dear editor,

I know it is hot and I know it is dry. I have lived through these cycles since the 1930s. Nobody has ever been able to change the weather. This year we have opportunity to change the representatives and senators of the state Legislature. I sincerely hope that Brownback’s plan will work for the state, but I am sure it will not work. If it doesn’t, we will see high property taxes, higher sales taxes, and less money for education. I feel John Coen and Ed Bideau are two people who want to see good things happen to the state of Kansas and people who live here. I sincerely hope you will vote for them Aug. 7. Sincerely, Bob Sharp, Humboldt, Kan.

The concern Don Bauer had was the possibility there could be an ambulance governance decision that forced Iola to a volunteer fire department. This will likely raise insurance rates for our homes and business buildings. But the primary concern is how will possible manufacturing companies with an interest in establishing a plant in Iola feel about a volunteer fire department. That could be a black mark on all of our possibilities. The other contender seemed primarily interested in establishing a stepping stone for higher elective office. We should vote for Don Bauer for District 3 county commissioner. We know Bauer is only concerned about our interests. Ray Shannon, Iola, Kan.

Dear editor,

Dear editor,

It’s amazing what people will believe. You can yell “fire, fire” long enough and someone will believe you. There are a number of people in Iola who want people to make a decision based on false and outdated information. Decisions that will affect everyone in Iola. This is just what happened when a vigilante group passed around the petition asking for the recall of Kendall Callahan and Ken Rowe. We have heard a lot about the recall vote from good citizens of Iola for Kendall Callahan and Ken Rowe, but do we know if it is all true? Number one: They used outdated information from the county attorney. Number two: Targeted these two council members when most of the council would be guilty if the two are. Number three: It is the two that were the most outspoken about the firing of former city administrator, Judy Brigham. We need to know how Judy’s trial will come out before we call foul. We wrote a letter earlier to the forum stating that we need facts that are true before we make such an important decision as recalling the two council members. Please, stop and think this through before you decide that a certain unhappy small group of people are telling you how you should feel and how you should vote. This recall vote will affect everyone in the city. We feel bad for people that try to do a job and then become a scapegoat for something a few feel is not popular. If this recall does pass, how are we to get good people to run for the council when they will think, “well, if I make someone mad, will I be subject to the pressure of a recall?” Jim and Martha Heffernon, Iola, Kan. Dear editor,

The election for County Commission District 3 for a new commissioner is Aug. 7. There are two good candidates but in their statements to the Iola Register only one brought out the ambulance management problem facing the City of Iola. He didn’t want a decision that placed Iola in a bad position. That contender for our vote is Don Bauer.

Towns and communities in southeast Kansas are losing population and businesses. This means whatever endeavor we want to undertake is made that much harder because there are fewer of us to spread the burden of paying for projects, education, health, and basic infrastructure. All these things must be maintained and upgraded and are usually done with the assistance in some form from the state of Kansas. So this is what makes our choice of representative from the 9th district so important. The qualities I am looking for is someone with good business experience knowing the balance between spending as needed, but a firm hand on fiscal responsibility. In my opinion Bud Sifers has these qualities. Apparently I’m not alone. That’s why his long list of endorsements includes: The Kansas State Chamber Commerce, Americans For Prosperity, Kansans For Life, Kansas State Rifle Association, National Rifle Association, and Kansas Republican Assembly. These endorsements tell me Bud Sifers is the strongest conservative running for the 9th district. One question we need to ask ourselves is do we need more experienced politicians in Topeka or an experienced businessman who will work for his district to thrive in these hard economic times and make the right choices to get us there. Larry Macha Iola, Kan. Dear editor,

As you consider who gets your vote for Kansas District 9 this year, remember that a “wish list is not a plan.” Bud Sifers is the only candidate that has offered ideas up and made a firm stance on issues. Bud Sifers is a businessman with a plan and a direction to lead our new district in a very new direction, prosperity. Our Governor Sam Brownback

also laid out a road map to a better Kansas and in 2010 Kansas sent him a conservative House to help lead Kansas to financial stability, to shore up unfunded liabilities such as KPERS and pay debt that was neatly tucked away out of sight. He needs people like Bud Sifers that will support a plan to grow the economy, that will make government less wasteful and improve the transparency of education dollars. There is a world of difference between the candidates who want better for all but offer no real solutions versus the candidate who goes out and works on a plan to make things better. Bud Sifers is not your everyday politician and knows what history tells us: real solutions do not happen in the halls of big government, they happen right here in our communities, towns and district. On Tuesday you as a taxpayer will have a voice in which direction our House district will choose, further down the rabbit hole or climb the ladder of prosperity. I hope you choose prosperity and vote Bud Sifers, a candidate with a plan! Sincerely, Gary and Susan Hoffmeier, Iola, Kan. Dear editor,

If the city and the people of Iola want to continue having an honest and reliable governing body, on the Tuesday primary ballot your vote will be no on the recall questions. Sincerely, Doris Hill, Iola, Kan. Dear editor,

A vote for Caryn Tyson for Kansas State Senate is a vote for disciplined, caring, and reasoned service. No one cares more for education than she does. She voted (while in the Legislature) to require that 65 percent of K-12 funding go to the classroom and teachers. She comes from a family with teachers. She earned her education in Kansas. To say anything less of her is absolutely absurd on its face. A vote for Caryn Tyson is a vote for the candidate who knows that we don’t have fiscal problems because we are taxed too little but rather spend too much. Kansas needs a senator like her in the State Senate. Allen County needs Caryn Tyson representing them in the Kansas Senate. Reject the radical and negative attacks against her. Reject the class envy rhetoric launched against her. The radical and negative cannot be trusted because they cannot be backed up by fact and are not even remotely consistent of what can be known about her.   We can trust a lady and servant like Caryn Tyson. Vote for Caryn Tyson. Respectfully yours, Bill LaPorte Moran, Kan.

defeat Indians KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Derek Lowe was one of the best starting pitchers in the American League for the first six weeks. Now he’s one of the worse. Lowe retired only five of the 17 batters he faced in the Cleveland Indians’ 8-3 loss Tuesday night to the Kansas City Royals. Since starting the season 6-1 with a 2.05 ERA on May 15, Lowe is 2-9 and his ERA has climbed to 5.52. Lowe (8-10) failed to finish the third and balked in a run. He was pulled after allowing seven runs on eight hits, two walks and a balk in 2 1/3 innings. Jarrod Dyson and Alex Gordon each had three hits, while Alcides Escobar had two hits and drove in three runs as the Royals snapped a five-game losing streak. Chris Getz had two hits and drove in two runs. The Royals scored all their runs in the first three innings. Luke Hochevar settled down after giving up three runs over the second and third innings One run scored on Johnny Damon’s infield single in the second when Hochevar failed to cover first base. In the third inning, Asdrubal Cabrera scored on a Hochevar wild pitch. Hochevar (7-9) gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks, while striking out six. The Royals broke open the game with a five-run third, which was highlighted by Getz’s two-run double and Escobar’s RBI triple NOTES: Kansas City Royals designated hitter Billy Butler has been named the American League Player of the Week for the period ending July 29... In a seven-game West Coast trip, Butler batted .458 (11-for-24) with three doubles, one home run, five walks, six RBI and four runs scored...With the Royals trading closer RHP Jonathan Broxton to the Reds for two minor league pitchers, manager Ned Yost said RHP Greg Holland would be used as the closer.

Fierce Five strikes Olympic gold for the US LONDON (AP) — Jordyn Wieber didn’t wait for the arena announcer to finish saying her name before the reigning world champion took off. The sooner she could get past the most crushing disappointment of her stellar career, the better. Eyes set down the runway, Wieber sprinted as if the gold medal was inches in front of her — the medal the U.S. women’s gymnastics team has been chasing for 16 years. Three seconds later, she grabbed it. The moment Wieber drilled the vault that would kickstart the Americans’ blowout win in Tuesday’s team finals, all the angst of missing the individual all-around finals disappeared. And she remembered, this was never really about her. “A team gold medal was also officially a goal of mine,” Wieber said. “I had to pull myself together and move on and be stronger mentally for the team.” Standing atop the podium together in London, after all, was the real prize Wieber and the rest of the “Fierce Five” set about chasing long ago, the one that would cement them as perhaps the greatest Olympic champions of all-time. When an official draped the medal with the deep purple ribbon around Wieber’s neck, the driven 17-year-old exhaled. Maybe she’ll only get one gold at these games. It certainly beats the alternative. “It’s a joy,” Wieber said. Wieber’s 15.933 on vault started a four-rotation exercise in precision.

USA’s, from left, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross, Alexandra Raisman, Gabby Douglas, and Jordyn Wieber pose with their gold medals after winning the women’s gymnastics team final Tuesday during the Summer Olympic Games in London. A stunning collapse by the Russians moments before the Americans’ turn on floor relieved some of the pressure. Still, Wieber was smiling as she powered through 75 seconds of exhilaration. In a flash it seemed, she was holding flowers and listening to “The Star-Spangled Banner” alongside her teammates. “The feeling was incredible,” she said. “To have this gold medal around your neck, it’s really an indescribable feeling. It just shows how much of a team we are.”

Highlights of Day 4 of the London Olympics

— Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian of all time by winning his 19th medal — a gold — as the United States romped to a dominating win in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay. Phelps now has 15 golds, two silvers and two bronzes over three Olympics, moving ahead of Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, who got her haul in 1956, 1960 and 1964. — American Allison Schmitt won the 200 freestyle with a dominating performance that left everyone else, including teammate Missy Franklin, battling for the other medals. It was her

first career gold medal, to go along with a silver in the 400 free and a bronze in the 4x100 free relay. The 17-year-old Franklin was denied her third medal in London, one night after her gutsy victory in the 100 backstroke. — Chinese teen swimming sensation Ye Shiwen now has two gold medals — but all anybody wants to talk about is whether she’s doping. She shattered the world record in the 400 individual medley, then broke her own Olympic record to take the 200 IM title. The head of the American Swimming Coaches Association was among those openly questioning Ye’s legitimacy, but Olympic organizers resolutely

defended her, and she replied “Absolutely not” when asked if she had ever doped. — Abby Wambach scored to lead the U.S. women to a 1-0 win over North Korea in soccer — a victory that gave the Americans first place in its group. — Beijing gold medalists Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser of the United States improved to 2-0 in the preliminary round of the beach volleyball tournament by beating Spain in three sets. The win against the only other unbeaten team in their pool virtually assures the Americans of a trip to the knockout round. MEDALS — With golds in swimming, synchronized platform diving and fencing, China built its Olympics-leading total to 13, with the United States second with nine golds. Both countries are tied with 23 medals overall. NOT THEIR FINEST HOUR — Water polo power Hungary, which has won three straight Olympic gold medals, lost to Montenegro 11-10, two days after dropping its opener in London to Serbia. The Hungarians next face Romania and Britain before closing out the preliminary stage against the United States. CULTURAL COMPROMISE — Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shahrkhani, a female judo fighter from Saudi Arabia, will be allowed to compete Friday wearing a form of headscarf. A compromise was reached after several days of IOC-brokered talks between the International Judo Federation and the Saudi Olympic Committee. TODAY’S SCHEDULE HIGHLIGHTS —Swimming: gold medal finals in men’s 200-meter breaststroke, men’s 100-meter freestyle, women’s 200-meter butterfly, women’s 4x200-meter freestyle relay. —Men’s gymnastics: all-around gold medal final. —Women’s beach volleyball: May-Treanor/Walsh (U.S.) vs. D. Schwaiger/S. Schwaiger (Austria).

Chiefs hope Poe gamble pays off ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — If Dontari Poe bombs out, general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel could wind up wearing the biggest dunce caps in Kansas City. How could they spend the overall No. 11 draft pick on an unproven kid who rated no higher than second-team all league in Conference USA? Should the hulking nose tackle rise to stardom, however, and the Chiefs could be headed for their toughest defense since Marty Schottenheimer’s brawny squads of the mid-1990s. He’ll give them what they’ve lacked most in their 3-4 alignment — a powerful presence in the center trenches, a magnet for double teams who frees secondary defenders to flow to the ball, a disruptive creator of up-the-middle passer pressure. During last year’s injury-plagued campaign, the Chiefs ranked 12th overall in scoring defense in finishing the season at 7-9. This year, the return of Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry from ACL surgery is sure to pump new vitality into the entire unit. Tackles Tyson Jackson and Glenn Dorsey are still young enough to improve, and second-year defenders Allen Bailey and Justin Houston are showing good promise. Plus, Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Jackson is squarely within his physical prime. But the biggest hope for meaningful improvement rests squarely on the back of a rookie who managed a meager 22 tackles and one sack his entire senior season at Memphis. In three years, Poe’s stats were an unimpressive 101 tackles, five sacks, four forced fumbles and four

pass breakups. Mike DuBose, Memphis’ defensive line coach and co-defensive coordinator, blamed poor coaching for Poe’s lack of production, saying he was never used right. It’s not an excuse Poe seems to embrace. “I think it’s DuBose being DuBose,” he said. “Like I said, there’s not too much for me to say about that. Whatever they told me to do, I did.” The Chiefs decided to roll the draft dice because Crennel, a highly respected defensive coach who helped develop four-time Pro Bowl nose tackle Vince Wilfork at New England, saw vast

potential in the raw youngster. Crennel is keeping a close eye as the Chiefs begin their first workouts in pads. “I want to see that he is a dominant football player, that he can force doubleteams and stay at the line of scrimmage against double teams, and that he is able to push the pocket on a pass rush,” Crennel said. “If he can do some of those things, that will be a plus for us.” At 6-foot-3 and 346 pounds, Poe has the size. He has the strength. Judging from his early showing in camp, he also has the desire. What he does not have

is the technique. In early drills, he’s looked good at times and bad at times, getting knocked off the ball badly on one play. Camp opened with journeyman Anthony Toribio running first team ahead of Poe, who insists he has no desire to prove his doubters wrong. “I play football. That’s what I’m here to do,” he said. “Whatever my coaches tell me to do, I’m guessing that’ll be the best thing for me. So for me to just listen to people and say I’m ready to do this or do that because they said something, that’d be wrong on me. I’m just here to work my hardest and do the best I can.” He is obviously coming in for extra attention at every practice. “They just stay on me,” Poe said. “They make sure I’m being a technician first. They tell me I’ve got a lot of ability but it will be nothing without the hard work and the technique. So they’re staying on me every day about that. “You’ve got to be a man to play inside. Everybody knows that,” he added. “You’ve got to have a mean streak in you, but most people think you just go wild and tear things up but you’ve got to be technical. In every technique you’ve got to know how to use your hands. So that’s what I’m trying to do out here.” Crennel has hinted he will be disappointed if Poe does not quickly take charge of the nose tackle job. But he’s also trying hard not to rush anything. “He’s got good ability, good size and good work ethic,” he said. “So now we’ll see where that takes him.”

Money flows in Senate races TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republican primary races for Kansas Senate seats are awash in an unusual amount of political money as moderate GOP incumbents and their allies try to fend off challengers backed by influential conservative groups. Campaign finance reports filed with the secretary of state’s office and posted online Tuesday showed that most of the dozen Republican senators who’ve been targeted for defeat from the right have outspent their opponents in the Aug. 7 primary, some by margins of four-to-one or more. Reports also documented a financial alliance between moderate Senate leaders and labor organizations, including the state’s largest teachers’ union. Finance reports show that spending by the Republican candidates in half a dozen races has topped $100,000, and the total for both candidates in a Topeka contest exceeds $263,000. But moderates contend such efforts are necessary to counter conservative organizations, particularly the Kansas Chamber of Commerce and the antitax, small-government group Americans for Prosperity. The chamber alone reported spending more than $231,000 this month on mailings and broadcast advertising designed to help conservative Senate candidates. Carol Williams, executive director of the Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission, said political money is more widespread than in past primary seasons. “We’ve just not seen this kind of money being spent in state Senate races be-

fore,” Williams said. The state Senate’s moderate GOP leaders have acted as a check on conservative Gov. Sam Brownback’s agenda. They resisted his successful push to cut income taxes this year and helped prevent the state from moving new public employees into a 401(k)-style pension plan, blocked a drive to reduce the political influence of unions and prevented moves toward remaking the state’s appellate courts. Conservatives’ targets include Senate President Steve Morris, of Hugoton, who faces Rep. Larry Powell, of Garden City, in the GOP primary. Morris has spent more than $183,000 on his re-election campaign, including $148,000 since the start of this year. Powell spent less than $23,000 through late July. Similar gaps exist in other GOP races. In the Topeka contest, Sen. Vicki Schmidt has spent nearly $208,000, most of it this year. Her challenger, Rep. Joe Patton, has spent about $56,000. The only moderate Republican incumbent to be outspent is Sen. Roger Reitz, of Manhattan, with reported expenditures of less than $16,000 since the beginning of last year, less than half of what each of his two primary opponents has spent. The Senate Republican Leadership Committee, a political action committee led by Morris, also has had a significant presence. This year, it has spent more than $242,000, and it received contributions of $70,000 from the companies operating each of the three state-owned casinos in Kansas, as well as donations from the

We’ve just not seen this kind of money being spent in state Senate races before. — Carol Williams, executive director Kansas Governmental Ethics Commission

Kansas Contractors Association and the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. The PAC also extended its reach by giving $100,000 to the Kansas Jobs PAC, which formed in June, and $70,000 to the Kansas Traditional Republican Majority PAC, most of its funds. The Kansas Jobs PAC also received contributions from the Kansas National Education Association, the state’s biggest teachers’ union, and unions representing carpenters and teamsters. The Kansas Jobs PAC then sent $40,000 to the Kansas Values PAC, which formed July 16 but contributed $11,000 to moderate GOP Senate candidates after eight days in existence. Each of the four PACs is allowed under Kansas law to contribute $1,000 directly to candidates and do independent mailings and advertising to advocate their election, so long as the activities are not coordinated with them. “You finally see it on paper — the coalition between the Democrats, the moderate Republicans and the unions,” said Jeff Glendening, vice president of political affairs for the Kansas Chamber. “If anyone doubted there was a coalition, they can’t anymore.” Meanwhile, the Kansas Chamber’s PAC raised about $228,000 from Jan. 1 through Thursday. More than half of it — $125,000, in a single contribution this month — came from Koch Industries Inc., the Wichita-based company headed by prominent conservative political donor Charles Koch, who has also supported the national Americans for Prosperity group.

Clinton urges Africans to work together DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is challenging African leaders to embrace democracy and partnerships with responsible foreign powers to improve living standards and address core causes of extremism. Clinton told a university audience in Senegal today that unlike other countries, America is committed to “a model of sustainable partnership that adds value, rather than extracts it” from Africa. The comments were veiled references to China, which is rapidly expanding its involvement in Africa in search of energy and resources for its own growing economy. Without mentioning China, she said that unlike other countries, “America will stand up for democracy and universal human rights even when it might be easier to look the other way and keep the resources flowing.”

Congress reaches tentative budget deal By Lisa Mascaro Tribune Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — Congressional leaders reached a tentative budget deal with the White House on Tuesday that would avert a politically risky government shutdown right before the election. The six-month stopgap measure would keep the government running at current levels through March — dashing, for now, the hopes of conservative Republicans who want to make steeper cuts, including eliminating money for President Barack Obama’s health care law. Although the deal would end the threat of a stalemate that could be politically damaging for both parties, it does not address the looming “fiscal cliff ” of tax hikes and mandatory spending cuts that are scheduled to take effect after Jan. 1. Votes on the tentative deal are set for September, before the new fiscal year begins on Oct. 1, clearing the post-election lame-duck session for the tax-andspending debate. “This is very good, because we can resolve these critical issues that directly affect the country soon as the election’s over and move on to do good things,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. White House press secretary Jay Carney called Tuesday’s breakthrough a “welcome development.” The swift agreement with House Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, is a turnaround from the shutdown threats that have dominated this Congress. The GOP’s House majority was elected on pledges to slash government spending. Republican leaders calculated it was better to reach a short-term agreement to pay for the routine functions of government so lawmakers could campaign on broader issues. Tax rates will rise and spending reductions will sharply cut defense and domestic programs in the new year if Congress fails to

compromise. The George W. Bush-era tax rates are scheduled to expire Dec. 31, and the across-the-board spending reductions were part of a deal to raise the debt ceiling. Republicans want to keep tax rates low across all income levels, including for the wealthy, while sparing the Pentagon from steep cuts. Obama wants to raise taxes on the top 2 percent — income above $250,000 for families and $200,000 for individuals — and trim the budget more equitably across the military and domestic accounts. “Taking this issue off the table will keep the larger focus on jobs, the economy and President Obama’s failed economic policies,” said a GOP leadership aide, who requested anonymity to discuss strategy. “That’s where Republicans win and Democrats lose.” Republicans also risked being blamed for brinkmanship if the government teetered on the verge of a shutdown. As both parties try to configure the post-election landscape, avoiding a shutdown crisis has been a priority for top conservatives and their allies at the Heritage Foundation, who helped lay the groundwork for the compromise. “A funding fight at that time would have added fuel to the fire,” said Michael Needham, the chief executive of Heritage Action, the foundation’s political arm. But not all Republicans are falling in line, and the GOP risks fallout from its tea party constituents. “For conservatives like me to agree to that level, those on the left will have to compromise too,” said Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan. He wants provisions attached to the bill to eliminate money for Obama’s health care plan and to limit abortions deal breakers for Democrats. To pass the bill, Boehner will likely need Democrats. He has been reluctant to rely too heavily on them in past deals lest he irritate his more conservative colleagues and weaken his hold on his party.

Colon woes prompt fiber-based diet Dear Dr. Donohue: I haven’t seen anything in your column lately on diverticulosis or diverticulitis. Will you please explain the difference between the two? What can a patient eat or not eat? What medication is taken for them? What causes them? — L.M. Answer: A colon diverticulum is a small (one-fifth to two-fifths of an inch, a little smaller than a pea) protrusion of the colon lining through the colon wall. It’s hollow. The theory behind diverticula formation is that

Dr. Paul Donohue To Your Good Health hard, dry food residue requires the generation of great pressure by the colon to push it along. That pressure pushes the colon lining through the colon wall. Experts say that this comes about because our diet has too much refined grains (grains without their bran

covering). Unrefined grains (whole grains) retain their outer bran coat, which serves to keep undigested food moist, soft and easily propelled through the colon. Diverticulosis is the condition in which the colon has developed diverticula. Usually it causes no pain. It’s quite common. Around 20 percent of people with diverticulosis will come down with inflammation of these protrusions. That’s diverticulitis, and it is painful. The pain most often is located in the lower-left side of the abdomen.

Mild cases of diverticulitis can be treated at home with antibiotics and by taking clear fluids only. In more-severe cases, hospitalization is required, and the person is hydrated with intravenous fluids and given antibiotics. The diet for diverticular disease is a diet high in fiber (25 grams a day for women; 35 for men). Whole grains, vegetables and fruits are high-fiber foods. If you can’t get enough fiber from foods, then products like Metamucil, Citrucel and Konsyl will furnish it.

The council members shall be chosen by the qualified electors of their respective wards, and no person shall be eligible to the office of council member who is not at the time of the election or appointment an actual resident of the ward for which he or she is elected or appointed, and if any council member shall move from the ward from which he or she was elected or appointed, his or her offices as council member shall thereby become vacated immediately. d. Whenever a vacancy shall oc-

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.
