Temps for run touts ‘Fresh Start’ Water restrictions adjusted Organization look inviting

Iola officials adjusted newly instituted rules limiting water usage today. Iolans still must adhere to the odd-even lawn watering rules. Those whose addresses end in an even number can water their lawns only on even-numbered days, for example. Watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. But those residents may now use sprinklers or other automated watering systems, Iola City Administrator Carl Slaugh said. The original restrictions mandated Iolans use hand-held hoses or buckets to water lawns.

Slaugh said the changes were made after he learned the city had provided differing versions of the restrictions to residents. “It was my fault,” he said. The restrictions were put in place after Iola was placed under a Stage 2 water warning Monday by the Kansas Water Office. Iolans also are prohibited from washing their cars between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. Local car washes will close, too. “I didn’t do a good job of communicating the new restrictions to one of the car washes in town,” Slaugh said. “They didn’t hear about it until (Wednesday.)”


MORAN — Fresh Start, a newly formed organization dedicated to removing illegal or abused drugs from the community, is taking shape. The organization, spearheaded by Marmaton Valley High School 11th-grader Michael Swift, has met regularly since Swift oversaw its formation with the help of several local teenagers and adults in June. The most recent meeting Wednesday evening drew only a handful of classmates — not unexpected, Swift said, with Register/Susan Lynn

Court clarification Iolan John C. Cleaver, whose name appeared in Saturday’s Court Report, was charged in Magistrate Court with criminal deprivation of property — motor vehicle. The listing in Saturday’s paper listed Cleaver’s charge as “auto theft,” which could have led some to believe he was charged

with a felony. The criminal deprivation of property charge is a misdemeanor. Cleaver also was charged with driving after being declared a habitual violator and failing to stop at the scene after being involved in a traffic accident.

Drop in US oil inventories keep price of crude high LONDON (AP) — Oil remained above $94 a barrel Today after an unanticipated drop in U.S. crude inventories and stronger retail sales helped keep near three-month high. Benchmark oil for September delivery was down 13 cents to $94.21 a barrel in midday trading in Europe in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The contract rose 90 cents to finish at $94.33 per barrel Wednesday in New York.

On the ICE Futures exchange in London, Brent crude was up 35 cents at $114.66. The Energy Department said Wednesday that stockpiles fell 3.7 million barrels last week to 366.2 million barrels, suggesting stronger demand. Analysts had predicted a decline of 1.5 million barrels, according to Platts, the energy information arm of McGraw-Hill. It marked the third consecutive large weekly decrease in oil supplies.

Man shoots self in butt during movie SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Police say a man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks at a Nevada movie theater during a showing of “The Bourne Legacy.” Police in Sparks, Nev., say the 56-year-old man’s injuries are not lifethreatening and no others were hurt. Authorities say the man had a permit to carry a concealed firearm. The man told of-

ficers the gun fell from his pocket Tuesday night as he was adjusting himself in the seat and that it discharged when it dropped to the floor. Authorities say the case will be sent to the city attorney for possible charges. The incident comes less than a month after a shooting at a suburban Denver theater that left 12 dead and 58 injured.

Iraqi refugee accused of terrorism LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — An Iraqi refugee accused of plotting to help terrorists back home may himself have been an insurgent during the war. When he goes on trial this month, several U.S. soldiers will be watching from the gallery who suspect his roadside bombs may have killed their comrades in Iraq in 2005. Mohanad Shareef Hammadi, 24, is scheduled for trial Aug. 28, but not in connection with the battlefield deaths of six Pennsylvania National Guardsmen seven years ago. Instead, Hammadi and another Iraqi refugee living in Kentucky, 30-yearold Waad Ramadan Alwan, were charged with trying to send weapons and cash back to al-Qaida in Iraq after they came to the U.S. Alwan has pleaded guilty.

Several current and former soldiers from the same National Guard unit believe Hammadi and Alwan could have had a hand in two roadside bombings that killed six of their buddies in August 2005, when their unit was stationed near the city of Bayji in the volatile Sunni Triangle north of Baghdad. Those six were among 85 U.S. military deaths in Iraq that month. Documents reviewed by The Associated Press show Hammadi and Alwan were insurgents in the same area around Bayji at the time the Pennsylvanians’ Task Force Dragoon was stationed there and hit. “It’s going to be extremely hard to hold my temper, extremely hard to keep cool,” said former Sgt. Brandon Miller, one of several former

of his unit’s deployment in Iraq, he is certain Alwan and Hammadi were among the insurgents who attacked his unit. “There’s no doubt he was in the same area we were,” Hedetniemi told The Associated Press. “The evidence suggests that.” Multiple sources place Task Force Dragoon in the same violent area where Alwan and Hammadi told an FBI informant they worked two years into the American-led war. Those sources include motions filed in court, criminal complaints and indictments of Alwan and Hammadi, search warrants for the two men’s shared apartment and computers, media accounts of the task force’s deployment and interviews with soldiers.

members of the task force who say they plan to attend the trial. Miller, an apartment maintenance manager in Chadds Ford, Pa., was awarded the Purple Heart after surviving a separate roadside bomb blast that destroyed the Humvee he was riding in in Bayji. Miller and Staff Sgt. Joshua Hedetniemi say the men believe there’s a chance Hammadi planted the roadside bombs that killed and injured their fellow soldiers, or fired bullets at them as snipers. “A lot of the time, there’s not a face to put with the actions, there’s not a tangible enemy,” Hedetniemi said. “It’s very tough to pin down that type of enemy.” Hedetniemi said, based on the publicly available evidence and the timeline

missioners voted in April to allow Sunday sales. Owners of Garnett’s two liquor stores said they would be open.


“I don’t have any pain!” Homemaker, gardener, golfer. Sophia Zetmeir is very active and spends a lot of time outdoors. Her first experience with joint surgery at Labette Health was for a torn rotator cuff three years ago after a bad fall. She healed quickly. But then she went to Italy. After doing all the tourist things, walking all the stairs and sidewalks, her knee wouldn’t stop hurting. Back home, injections failed to relieve the pain. Labette Health orthopedic specialist Dr. Kevin Mosier recommended total knee replacement surgery. He told her “you can’t straighten it because it’s bone-on-bone.” “I know enough that the pain is not going to stop without the surgery,” she said. She realized that it was just not going to get any better if she continued to wait. Having the surgery available right here in Parsons was important to her, too. “It’s hard for people to go and have to stay in Wichita or Springfield or Joplin,” she said. Within a week of having knee surgery, Sophia could put weight on it again. “I remember getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and I realized – it didn’t hurt!” she said. “I was very pleased. I can walk stairs,” she said.

Wildfires displace Idaho residents FEATHERVILLE, Idaho (AP) — Lorie Winmill grew teary as she loaded her vehicle and prepared her 4-yearold granddaughter to stay with relatives as a wildfire burned closer to this small town in central Idaho. “This is the only home Lizzie has ever known,” said Winmill. Hundreds of people in two Idaho towns packed their belongings and left Wednesday ahead of a massive blaze expected to hit the area later this week. They joined scores of weary residents across several dry and hot western states that are dealing with one of the worst fire seasons in memory. Not only are more wildfires flaring up in the West this year than last, but the nation’s fires have gotten bigger, said Jennifer Smith, of the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho. As of Wednesday, nearly 43,000 wildfires had been reported in the U.S. this season, burning a total of 6.4 million acres, or 10,000 square miles. The 10-year average for this period is 52,535 fires but covering only 5 million acres, she said. The massive Idaho wildfire has burned more than 100 square miles in the past two weeks. It was bearing down on Pine and Featherville, vacation towns in the mountains 105 miles northeast of Boise. “It’s not a question of if, but when,” Boise National Forest spokesman Dave Olson said of the fire reaching

Featherville’s outskirts. A steady stream of traffic moved away from Pine and Featherville, a town with a single main street, saloon, motel, cafe and a handful of shops. The area has 450 homes, with about half inhabited year-round and the others serving as summer and weekend retreats. Smoke has loomed over Featherville for several days, a signal for many that evacuation orders may soon be coming. Crews faced nine big fires in Idaho, including one in the Salmon-Challis National Forest that stranded 250 rafters floating the Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Authorities closed a backcountry access road due to falling boulders and debris caused by the blaze. Some rafters were stuck for two days before authorities began shuttling them out Wednesday. Other wildfires across the West include: — In Washington, hundreds of firefighters used bulldozers and hand tools to build containment lines and aircraft dropped water and fire retardant on a stubborn blaze east of the Cascades. Dozens of homes across roughly 35 square miles have been destroyed. More evacuations were ordered late Wednesday on the north side of the blaze, adding to the hundreds of residents who have already fled homes. The fire started Monday and quickly spread in rural areas

It’s not a questions of if, but when — Dave Olson, Boise National Forest, on fires approaching Featherville, Idaho

east of Cle Elum, about 75 miles east of Seattle. — In California, crews were preparing for storms and strong winds at a wildfire in a remote, rugged area in Plumas National Forest. More than 900 homes were threatened by the 66-square-mile blaze in Northern California. Nearly a dozen major blazes were burning across California, with some 8,000 firefighters assigned to get them under control, said state fire spokesman Daniel Berlant. They made progress at a blaze in Northern California’s Lake County, allowing hundreds of evacuees in the Spring Valley community to return home. A brutal heat wave in Southern California, however, fueled wildfires that tore through more than 24 square miles of brush. Lightning sparked a group of five fires that together burned more than 14½ square miles in a rural part of San Diego County, said state fire Capt. Mike Mohler. About 400 residents were ordered to leave in the communities of Ranchita and Santa Fe.

Note to job seekers: Facebook postings are fair game As any law enforcement officer will tell you, those who violate the law are often their own worst enemies. They can’t be quiet. They need to tell someone. Or everyone. This need has made social media an officer’s best friend. Sooner or later, someone tells. The future of law enforcement will include those who surf the web looking for confessions, or those who tattle. It’s human nature to tell others about your life. Human beings crave attention. And, as any observer of Facebook or Twitter can attest, many don’t consider their Facebook pages to be public. They couldn’t be more wrong. And, unfortunately, personal discretion is not at its peak on these platforms. The police have picked up on it. So have employers. Any employer who does not “Facebook” a job applicant is remiss. It will often tell you

more about the potential applicant than any resume, and, if it gets that far, perhaps the interview itself. That could be a good thing. Or not. As Microsystems CEO Scott McNealy famously said: “You have zero privacy anyway. Get over it.” If a job applicant has a Facebook page, he should realize it’s fair game to be viewed as part and parcel of his resume. Hence, it’s probably a good idea to take down the picture of being toasted. Wouldn’t hurt to spell words correctly. Probably not a good idea to have the phrase “will you visit me in prison?” Being fully clothed shouldn’t be optional What would be interesting would be a study determining the percentages of instances in which a job applicant’s Facebook page ended up being an asset. Our guess? Not many. — Emerson K. Lynn St. Albans (Vt.) Messenger

The pleasure trap: Why we have an obesity problem By DOUGLAS J. LISLE The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, Va.)

SANTA ROSA, Calif. — When I went out on my front porch recently to pick up the paper, I saw that I had done it again. I had left the porch light on, and once again accidentally committed mass murder. The moths had spent all night flying into the porch light, become exhausted, and died. There was a little pile of them there, victims of my mistake. I usually turn the light off before going to bed, to spare their lives. I’m sure most children ask their parents, at some point, “Why do the moths fly into the flame?” as this type of behavior is often fatal. As adults, we give the usual answer — “Because they are attracted to it.” Perhaps not that satisfying to a particularly inquisitive child, but it was good enough for me. I would turn 50 years old before this phenomenon was explained to me in any real detail. It turns out that moths are designed to fly toward the moon (or the stars, perhaps), to make use of celestial bodies as a sort of compass point. By flying to the light, they get above the local fray, then from a higher vantage point, sense where there might be mates or food, and then fly toward those enticing targets. Later, they can again fly up toward the light, and using the moon or stars again as a compass, and find their way home (or wherever it is that moths go). This is a valuable instinct. It works great in a natural setting. At night, the brightest object in the sky is the moon. There aren’t any other big sources of light, so this means that the moon is a reliable guidepost — like a trusted friend that would never let you down. In that setting, flying toward the light is the right thing to do, and no self-respecting moth ever resists this attraction. Nowadays, of course, the moths near me no longer live in a natural setting, being sur-

rounded each evening by a sea of artificial lights. This means that quadrillions of moths will make the same type of fatal mistake every year. They fly to light, and run smack into the little glass enclosure for the bulb. They might not die from the heat of the “flame,” but they die because of a relentless internal motivational force driving them to return to the light over and again, no matter how exhausted they are. Even if the moon is full and shining, they hit my porch light repeatedly until they die. Why? It is probably because they are designed to fly toward the brightest light — not just any light. And my porch light is many times brighter than the moon. For the eyes of the moth, there is no contest — its tiny brain insists that the bright porch light is the right target. It is not a normal stimulus. It is what neurobiologists call a supernormal stimulus. And a supernormal stimulus trumps a normal stimulus, every time. AND THIS HELPS EXPLAIN

a great deal of our modern day problems, struggles and various neuroses. Why is losing weight the No. 1 personal goal of Ameri-

cans? Because we are so dreadfully overweight, of course. No statistics need to be cited here — just use your eyes. But why are we so dreadfully overweight? Because we eat too much high fat, high sugar and processed food (of course). But if we are aware of the problem (we are) and know what to do to solve it (we do), why does this problem persist? What is going on is what Dr. Alan Goldhamer and I refer to as “the pleasure trap.” It begins with our natural design. In a natural setting, we were designed to seek out the richest source of calories that we could find. We have a way to do this, so that we don’t do something stupid like eat lettuce all day long when there is fruit available, instead. Lettuce is maybe 100 calories per pound, and if you have a stomach big enough to eat only three to five pounds of food each day, you won’t survive long on lettuce. You can’t survive for long on 300-500 calories a day. Fruit has about three times the calories, at 300 calories per pound. Much more valuable biologically. So how are we smart enough to avoid wasting our time eating lettuce when we could be eating fruit? Well, neuroscientists tell us that there are chemicals in your brain, neurotransmitters, that

signal pleasure from eating, and will signal more intensively when foods with greater calorie densities are eaten. Good for the neuroscientists. But I think we already essentially knew this. We eat foods with greater calorie densities because they taste better. But here is where it gets interesting. What if you have a species that is designed to eat things like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and perhaps some occasional lean meat? What if the average calorie density of the diet-of-the-speciesdesign was about 500-600 calories per pound? The diet would be a mixture of foods like lettuce (100 calories per pound), vegetables (about 200), fruits (about 300), whole grains, beans, and potatoes (all about 500–600 calories per pound). Throw in a few nuts and seeds, and occasional animal food (maybe), and you have a healthy, lean diet of about 500-600 calories per pound on average. And guess what? Not a single member of the species will be fat if it eats its natural diet! After all, how many fat zebras, aardvarks or elephants are ever seen? Wild horses, bison or kangaroo? We don’t see obese animals in the wild because obesity has been engineered out of their design. By eating the foods of their nature, no animal would systematically overeat. This includes us. But what if you engineered the food to taste better? What if you took foods that were normally 500 calories per pound (like a baked potato) and swathed them in butter (4,000 calories per pound)? What happens next is logical. The food with higher calories per pound will taste better, because better taste is pretty much just

a detection mechanism for increased caloric density. So if you make the food taste better, you do this by making the food more calorically concentrated. And it looks like this: potato chips (2,500 calories per pound), chocolate (3,000 calories per pound), oily dressings (4,000 calories per pound), and refined sugar (1,800 calories per pound). Adding fat and sugar to foods makes them taste better, by turning basic food into supernormal-stimuli-food. And now we have the answer to the great motivational dilemma of our time: Why do so many smart, savvy people have such a problem controlling their weight and their health? Answer: They live in a time when their natural design is being subverted. We simply weren’t designed to be confronted with the supernormal dietary choices that we now have available. We fly again and again into the “light,” and it steals our collective health, vitality, and beauty. Wow. Fortunately, we aren’t quite moths, and we can learn to outwit this trap. With a copy of a good book (see McDougall’s “The Starch Solution”) you can soon be on your way. Sure it takes effort, but then so does running to the doctor, worrying about your health, and lugging around an unwanted waistline. With some simple changes, you can change your life.

Letter to the editor Dear editor,

The small cities of Allen County have endured and suffered decisions made by Gov. Brownback concerning consolidating the schools to a bigger city and more population. Each city has taxpayers paying to Allen County, it looks to me. The Board of Education is being

a little possessive about the money it receives for each student, leaving small cities at the mercy of Iola and its Board of Education. As the students lost their school in Gas and LaHarpe, they were enrolled in Humboldt, Moran, Colony and Iola so no one town was left out except the small

cities who lost their schools and students. This is what I think. The Board of Education and councils of some cities come down to passing the buck for it’s always somebody else’s blame. We need to think of all students. Lloyd W. Turner, LaHarpe, Kan.

County officials respond to possible bomb threat By ROB BURKETT

A package sitting on the Moran railroad tracks kicked off a series of events earlier this month. “We had to assume that it might be an explosive of some kind initially,” said Tom Williams, Allen County sheriff. “My undersheriff, Bryan Murphy, went to a bomb school. Within 10 minutes of him being on scene, we were able to safely say that it was not an explosive. That allowed us to

keep from having to evacuate more citizens from their homes.” Additional response included notifying the Department of Alcohol Firearms and Tobacco and Topeka Explosive Ordnance Detail, which handle explosives. “We were able to handle it at the local level,” said Pam Beasley, Allen County Emergency Management coordinator. “But we let the state level know what was going on in case we needed to get help from them.”

For immigrants who win deportation, what’s next? WASHINGTON — As young undocumented immigrants scrambled this week for high school transcripts and proof of local residency for applications that would allow them to remain and work in the United States legally, state officials across the country began reviewing their own policies to see how a new federal program would affect them. New issues are creeping up, such as whether President Barack Obama’s order to prevent the deportations of hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants preempts state policies that don’t allow illegal immigrants to get driver’s licenses or pay resident tuition at public colleges and universities. “It’s fair to say that we don’t yet know what the impact will be, but will be reviewing the new federal program carefully in the context of N.C. law and university policy,”

said Joni Worthington, a spokeswoman for the University of North Carolina system. To the consternation of some Republicans, the Obama administration announced plans in June to stop deportations of young immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children. The deferrals, if approved, would award applicants work permits and keep them from being deported for two years. Officials said this week that it would be up to the states to determine issues under their control, such as whether undocumented immigrants who get deferrals may receive instate tuition and driver’s licenses. Those rules vary from state to state. The deferral program could affect an estimated 1.4 million illegal immigrants, according to the Immigration Policy Center, the research arm of the nonprofit American

Immigration Council. California has about 460,000 potential applicants, followed by Texas (227,000) and Florida (85,750). Georgia has 38,500 potential applicants. North Carolina has 31,010. Advocates across the country began holding clinics this month for thousands of immigrants who want assistance on how to apply. More than 1,000 eligible youth were expected to attend a workshop Wednesday at Casa de Maryland, a community organization outside Washington. Clutching her school records, 17-year-old Marina Bautista stood outside Casa de Maryland late Wednesday eagerly waiting to speak with a group of volunteers who’d help her fill out an application. Bautista was brought to the states when she was just 11 months old and she’s never returned to central Mexico. Now, she said, she doesn’t have to

worry about being deported from the only country she knows: “We can now do things legally without having to worry about police thinking we’re here to cause chaos.” She hopes to go to college to study photography or cosmetology. The Latin American Coalition in Charlotte, N.C., plans to bring in lawyers every Saturday and Monday to meet with potential applicants for as long as there’s a need. One of the biggest questions from students is whether they now can apply for in-state college tuition, said Marty Rosenbluth, the executive director of the North Carolina Immigrant Rights Project. “And the answer is we just don’t know yet.” North Carolina Gov. Bev Perdue is reviewing the executive order to see how it may affect the state, said Jon Romano, the governor’s communications director.

After eight years in seminary Miller was ordained in 1982. Something that started off as “just something to have fun at” turned into his life’s career. Now, he doesn’t look back. He has been a priest for 30 years and is “having more fun than should be allowed,” he said. Miller is happy with the way St. John’s is working and has no intention of making changes. “I just want to encour-

age people to keep going to Mass and sacraments,” M i l l e r said. “I would like to build a John Miller little children’s choir, I guess that might be a change, but it is really more of a development.” Miller is familiar with music, he writes his own music and plays different instruments on his keyboard. He has published three Christian CDs.

MILLER is proud of his claim to fame he has achieved in Iola. He submitted two quilts to the Allen County Fair and one of them won first place and the other was judged second. He has been enjoying the change of pace from the country and says the people even interact differently in the city. “The interaction here in Iola is very warm, receptive and very friendly,” Miller said. “Iola is a great place. St. John’s is a very nice parish and the people here are very receptive.”

opened. An indoor location would be preferred, although liability issues would likely arise then. Swift said he would contact other communities that have handled such efforts in the past — Joplin was cited — to see how those programs worked. If successful, Swift said he would like to see Fresh Start bag projects expanded to Elsmore, Savonburg, Mildred and LaHarpe. SWIFT’S OTHER focus is finding a potential home for a teen center in Moran, by using either a vacated building or other locale for youth to meet during down time. Earlier suggestions of opening a swimming pool or paintball arena are remote because of the costs and liability involved, Swift said. “Those are hard to do without any grants,” he said. He envisions a center filled with arcade games, a pool table, perhaps a television and furniture. The group suggested several potential locations in Moran. Swift said he would begin networking to determine each site’s potential. “I’m still abiding by the idea that boredom is what starts people” down the wrong path with drugs, Swift said. “We need to create something lasting in Moran.” FINALLY, Swift said he would remain focused on introducing Fresh Start and its vision to students at Marmaton Valley and

adults throughout the community. Reaction has been largely positive, Swift said, although some have offered resistance to such an ambitious dream. “I’ve had kids tell me they don’t want any part of this, which is their right,” he said. On the other hand, Swift has received uplifting letters from adults in Allen County. Iolan Don Hillbrant wrote a letter in support of Fresh Start, while Iolan Jim Smith sent a monetary donation. “We need to do something nice to thank those guys,” Swift said. Swift plans to host a school assembly in the coming days for those unfamiliar with Fresh Start. He also wants to reach out to church youth groups, noting those groups tend to meet on Wednesdays, the same as Fresh Start. The group will meet regularly in school, as well as the third Wednesday of each month for community members. Meeting times likely will stagger between days and evenings to give more folks an opportunity participate. He also has visited with Thrive Allen County officials, as well as members of Moran PRIDE. “Kathy Ward of PRIDE has been a tremendous help,” Swift said. Fresh Start also has its own Facebook page — FreshStarting — where Swift and others will provide updates on upcoming activities as well as links to other information about the dangers of drug abuse.

Sorghum seen as source for ‘cleaner’ ethanol BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The federal government is on the verge of approving a grain mainly used as livestock feed to make a cleaner version of ethanol, a decision officials say could give farmers a new moneymaking opportunity, boost the biofuels industry and help the environment. A plant in western Kansas already is gearing up to take advantage, launching a multimillion-dollar renovation so it can be the first to turn sorghum — a plant similar in appearance to corn — into advanced ethanol. Advanced biofuels result in even less lifetime greenhouse gas production than conventional biofuels, measuring from the time a crop is planted to when the fuel is burned in a vehicle. The only advanced biofuels in the United States now are sugar cane-based ethanol imported from Brazil and domestic biodiesel, a mixture of petroleum diesel and renewable sources such as soybean oil, said Matt Hartwig, spokesman for the Renewable Fuels Association. Advanced ethanol made from sorghum would give the nation another option as it aims to meet the federal goal of producing 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels per year by 2022. “We need to continue to expand the base of feedstocks from which we produce biofuel,” Hartwig said. “It’s a good first step.” Almost all the ethanol produced in the U.S. now is conventional ethanol made from corn starch. Critics of the ethanol industry complain too much corn is going to energy production, resulting in higher food prices for consumers. Corn affects food prices in multiple ways because it’s a widely used ingredient in food manufacturing and it’s used to feed livestock. More grain sorghum going to fuel production is unlikely to spark the same complaints, because it is not the main ingredient in a number of foods. While it can be used in human food, it’s sold mainly to feed poultry and livestock. Sweet sorghum produces edible syrup. Sorghum also has environmental advantages. It is more tolerant of drought than other crops, including corn, and it produces about the same amount of ethanol per bushel as corn while requiring one-third less water. It’s less often used than corn in conventional ethanol because corn is much more plentiful, Hartwig said. U.S. corn acres this year outnumber sorghum acres about 16 to one. Also, most ethanol plants are in the Corn Belt focused around Iowa and Illinois, while sorghum is grown primarily in the central and southern Great Plains. Along with Kansas, the top producers are Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas. The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that ethanol made from grain sorghum can qualify as an advanced biofuel if it’s made at plants with the proper green technology. The agency has taken public comments and will issue a determination later. Its approval would make sorghum-based ethanol more attractive because advanced ethanol commands a higher price than conventional, said Chris Cogburn, strategic business director for the National Sorghum Producers. The question, Hartwig said, is whether ethanol producers are willing to install the equipment needed to produce advanced ethanol from sorghum. “It has great potential for the future and (is) some-

thing the industry will be exploring, but we don’t know about the impact here in the near future,” he said. Western Plains Energy LLC in Oakley, which makes conventional ethanol, aims to be the first to upgrade to that technology. The plant is installing equipment that will use

methane gas from cattle manure rather than natural gas, cut down on water use and turn waste into a fertilizer. The transition will cost $30 million to $40 million and could be done by the end of the year or early next year. “We’re going to try to produce over 50 million gal-

lons (of advanced ethanol) per year,” said Curt Sheldon, the plant’s chief accounting officer. “At today’s prices, we could probably pay for the project in two to three years.” Western Plains plans to buy 17.5 million bushels of grain sorghum a year from area farmers, and if more

biofuel plants begin using sorghum, it has the potential to create a new and much bigger market for those growing the grain. “Western Plains will be the first, but from our discussion with ethanol plants they won’t be the last,” said Cogburn. Western Plains’ switch to sorghum had to

do with more than just economics, Sheldon said. Most of the company’s managers and board members are farmers. “And farmers are the ultimate environmentalists,” he said. “They have to live on the land, work the land, raise their kids out there. We want to do our part.”

MEXICO CITY (AP) — The United States defied expectations — and a rowdy crowd elated by Mexico’s Olympic gold — to break a 75-year winless streak at the intimidating Azteca Stadium with an 80th minute goal and a series of saves that delivered a 1-0 victory. Michael Orozco Fiscal’s goal and Tim Howard’s late sprawling saves left tens of thousands of opposing fans in stunned silence.

Royals rally to edge A’s KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brandon McCarthy pitched well enough to win his seventh straight decision. Instead, McCarthy suffered his first loss since April 21, snapping his career-high six-game winning streak, as the Kansas City Royals rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics. “It stunk,” McCarthy said. “It was a bad loss for us across the board. These are games we expect to win and games we have been winning all year.” The Royals scored two runs with two outs in the seventh. “I’m not happy with myself,” McCarthy said. “There are a lot of things I could have done better. Giv-

ing up runs, I don’t like to do that. I don’t like doing it late in the game. I don’t like doing it with two outs.” McCarthy, who is 6-1 with a 2.45 ERA in his past nine starts, gave up three runs, two earned, and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings, while walking none and striking out four. “It was pretty much the way we’ve seen him pitch this season,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “He was economical. He threw less than 100 pitches again.” Eric Hosmer, Lorenzo Cain and Chris Getz hit consecutive doubles, the first Kansas City extrabase hits of the game, in the seventh. Cain, who was in a 2-for-24 skid, doubled home Hosmer to tie the score.

“He got two outs and then threw a changeup to Hosmer that he hit and then Cain, he probably didn’t get the pitch where he wanted to,” Melvin said. Left-handed reliever Sean Doolittle was brought in to face Getz. After fouling off five pitches with two strikes, Getz stroked an opposite-field double on the 11th pitch to bring home Cain. “I tried everything,” Doolittle said. “It’s really frustrating when you locate. I thought I located pretty well. He fouled off a couple of breaking balls and a couple of pitches were down and away and he didn’t take the bait, just off the strike zone. See RALLY | B2

Seattle’s Hernandez pitches a perfect game SEATTLE (AP) — As he rode down in the crowded elevator wearing a wide grin after watching Felix Hernandez make baseball history, Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik felt like having a little fun. He pulled out his cellphone, held it to his ear and listened for a moment. “No, we’re not trading Felix Hernandez,” Zduriencik jokingly said into his phone. Not after Wednesday. Not anytime soon. Hernandez pitched the Seattle Mariners’ first perfect game and

the 23rd in baseball history, overpowering the Tampa Bay Rays in a brilliant 1-0 victory Wednesday. The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner has never hid his desire for pitching perfection. For a franchise on its way to an 11th straight season without a playoff appearance, Hernandez is the one constant keeping fans interested in Mariners baseball. Hernandez (11-5) rewarded those fans with a 12-strikeout gem on Wednesday afternoon. He baffled the Rays using his sharp curve and blistering fastball to keep the Rays guessing all day.

Sold-out games aren’t always so By DAVE CAMPBELL AP Sports Writer

Sellouts in pro sports aren’t always so. In today’s world of social media, fans often point out perceived inaccuracies in attendance figures, perhaps posting a photo on Twitter of vacant seats to back up their beef. What gives? “I’ve been at places where they announce large crowds on a nice sunny day and the ballpark is half empty. That’s when people question, and I’m OK with somebody asking me that question,” said Lou DePaoli, chief marketing officer for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Teams insist they’re not trying to sugarcoat a smaller-than-anticipated crowd. Like most of the other sports leagues, Major League Baseball tracks attendance by the number of tickets sold. MLB uses these figures in revenue sharing calculations, which help the game’s competitive balance between large- and small-market teams. “Attendance becomes as much as an accounting sheet for us as anything,” MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said. “We use those numbers as much internally as we do externally.” OK, so they’re not trying to be sneaky, simply seeking consistency. Lee Igel, an associate professor in the sports business and management department at New York University, doesn’t quite buy this. “If they announced the true attendance number it’d look like there’s something wrong with the business that people aren’t showing up,” Igel said. Rewording the line in the box score from “attendance” to “tickets sold” would appease some of the

skeptics, perhaps even in Boston, where the Red Sox have claimed the longest sellout streak in the history of major American professional sports, a run that started in May 2003. The Boston Globe sent reporters to a game this spring to try to crack the case, finding unsold seats both online and at each Fenway Park ticket window well after the first pitch that night. The Red Sox are no different than their peers, though. Follow this example, especially if you liked word problems in math class: The capacity at a certain stadium is 40,000 — that makes 40K an official sellout. But with standing room tickets, 41,000 people can fit in the friendly confines before the fire department steps in. On one particular night, let’s say 38,000 of the 40,000 seats have been sold. But another 1,000 standing room tickets were purchased by people looking for a cheaper alternative for taking in the game. And the team has also given away

1,000 tickets, including 800 to local charities and 200 comps to wives of players, friends of front office executives and high school pals of the home plate umpire. So 40,000 is the announced attendance figure for the night, an official sellout, even though 2,000 seats were still available to buy when the game began. Fans used to have to find a knothole in the outfield wall to watch a sold-out game. Now they can just get out the credit card and go right in. There’s yet another piece of potential confusion in all of this. From our fictional example, let’s say 37,000 people actually walked through the turnstiles that night. That left 3,000 noshows among the 40,000 tickets that were in the public’s possession. Perhaps 2,000 tickets were still for sale on the secondary market through various online brokerages, which bought them originally from the team, and the other 1,000 seats belonged to season-ticket holders who had a kid’s soc-

cer game or a late meeting at work but couldn’t find a neighbor or a relative to use them. Modern-day distractions can be just as much of a barrier to attendance as disinterest in the team, but for hard-core seam heads, that’s hard to fathom. “Maybe a death in the family or something like that,” said Nancy High, a Kansas City Royals seasonticket holder, when asked at a recent game what would keep her from the ballpark. “Or maybe a hurricane,” offered Patty Faini, who was at Kauffman Stadium that same night as part of a summer-long trip to visit every major league ballpark. These days, fans can follow every pitch on a device that fits in a pocket. They can watch just about every game in the comfort of their home, too. So on some nights, a season-ticket holder just might not feel like leaving the air conditioning or risking getting rained on and paying $15 for parking. But is that necessarily bad for baseball? “No-shows are almost a symptom of how busy a life that we lead,” said Jonathan Norman of GMR Marketing, a sports marketing agency based in the Milwaukee area. “That shows these fans are interested, that they’re going to buy the product whether or not they go to the game or not. That, to me, is about the strength of the MLB brand more than anything.” Igel disagreed. “So much of the business is built off, not the ticket price, but beyond the turnstile. Fans are buying beers, hot dogs and T-shirts all at marked-up prices. That makes a difference,” he said.

second and advanced to third on catcher Derek Norris’ throwing error. Escobar scored on Billy Butler’s grounder to Josh Donaldson, who threw home high and late. The Athletics tied it in the second. Chris Carter led off with a double and he stopped at third on Donaldson’s single and scored on Brandon Moss’ single. Donaldson, who was recalled Tuesday from TripleA Sacramento, homered in the fourth inning to give the A’s a 2-1 lead. “Brandon pitched great,” Donaldson said. “He was

one pitch away from sealing the deal for us. They (Royals) weren’t taking very good swings.” Greg Holland worked around a leadoff single in the ninth to collect his fourth save in five opportunities. Notes: Royals manager Ned Yost said, “it was sad, sorry to hear it,” upon learning Giants OF Melky Cabrera, who played last season for the Royals, had been suspended 50 games after testing positive for a perfor mance-enhancing substance. . A’s RF Josh Reddick was scratched from the

lineup after having complications from a tooth extraction. . LHP John Lamb, who was the Royals’ top pitching prospect, struck out two in a scoreless inning Tuesday for the Royals Arizona Rookie League club. It was Lamb’s first appearance since May 19, 2011 for Double-A Northwest Arkansas and having Tommy John surgery. .RHP Luke Hochevar is the Royals starter for the series finale. Hochevar is 0-7 with a 6.96 ERA in eight career starts against the A’s. Oakland will counter with rookie RHP Dan Straily.

“I was mixing it up, working both sides of the plate, executing my pitches. To have a long at-bat like that and not get him out really stinks.” Will Smith (4-4), a 23-yearold rookie left-hander, limited the A’s to two runs and five hits, while striking out five and walking one. In winning his past two starts, Smith has allowed four runs and 11 hits in 14 innings. The Royals scored an unearned run in the first. Alcides Escobar, who reached on a fielder’s choice, stole

MLB officials suspends Giants’ Melky Cabrera SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Melky Cabrera’s MVPlike year is over — at least for the regular season. The San Francisco outfielder was suspended 50 games following a positive test for testosterone, putting an abrupt end to what had been a remarkable regular season and throwing the Giants’ playoff hopes into doubt. Cabrera leads the National League with 159 hits and his .346 batting average is second behind Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen. “My positive test was the result of my use of a substance I should not have used,” Cabrera said in a statement released by the players’ association. “I accept my suspension under the Joint Drug Program and I will try to move on with my life. I am deeply sorry for my mistake and I apologize to my teammates, to the San Francisco Giants organization and to the fans for letting them down.”

Case management

By JOHN HANNA Associated Press

KHI/Dave Ranney

Mary Barker, a case manager with the Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging, reassesses the needs of Vivian Glessner, a 91-year-old resident at Briarcliff Care Center in Topeka. Barker meets with Glessner every 11 months to make sure she’s receiving the appropriate level of Medicaid-funded services. Sullivan said that after Jan. 1, the ADRC assessments would be forwarded to the managed care companies, which then would take on the case management responsibilities. The companies, he said, would have the option of subcontracting with other case management organizations. For example, the companies could subcontract with a center for independent living for case management or directcare services. Some details still are being worked out. “We’re in the process — over the next couple weeks — of finalizing the details for the managed care plans,” Sullivan said. “That’s not been decided yet.” But it’s clear, he said, that a subcontractor won’t be allowed to provide case management and in-home services for the same individual. “You can provide both services,” Sullivan said, “but not for the same person.” The three managed care companies with KanCare contracts are Amerigroup, UnitedHealthcare and Sunflower State Health Plan, a subsidiary of Centene. Whether the managed care companies will be willing to use third-party case managers remains to be seen.

PETA, State Fair organizers at odds HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is objecting to restrictions on its exhibit next month at the Kansas State Fair, saying they amount to unconstitutional censorship. Fair officials say any videos or pictures of animals being decapitated, dismembered or butchered must not be readily visible outside PETA’s booth, so that fairgoers will have to make a conscious choice to view the material.

PETA calls that a content-based restraint. It says the fair is a public forum and cannot restrict viewpoints. Fair general manager Denny Stoecklein responded Wednesday that the fair “supports Kansas agriculture and sends a strong pro-agriculture message.” He added, “We also provide an equal opportunity to all individuals and organizations to apply for booth space and respect an individual or organization’s First Amendment rights.”

Former A.G. staffer arrested in sting TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A former employee of the Kansas attorney general’s office is charged with a misdemeanor following a prostitution sting in Topeka. Online court records show Steve Rarrick charged in Shawnee County District Court with one count of patronizing a prostitute. The Topeka CapitalJournal reported Wednesday Rarrick was one of 12 people arrested in the sting, which focused on Internet solicitations of

prostitutes. A call to Rarrick’s home was unanswered Wednesday. His attorney did not return a call seeking comment. Rarrick is currently an attorney for the Citizens’ Utility Ratepayers Board, which represents residential customers and small businesses in utility regulation hearings. From 1995 to 2003 he was a deputy state attorney general overseeing consumer protection and antitrust work.

“That’s one of the things we don’t know,” said Shari Coatney, executive director at Southeast Kansas Independent Living, which is based in Parsons and serves eight counties, including Allen. “They could subcontract some of it out or they could do it all themselves.” Sullivan declined to say which or how many organizations have bid on the ADRC contract, noting that negotiations were ongoing. He also would not say how much the department plans to spend on the ADRC services. Typically, bidders and state officials decline public comment about proposals while they are in negotiation. Janis DeBoer, executive director of the Kansas Area Agencies on Aging Association (K4A), confirmed that her organization had bid on the contract. But she declined further comment about it. K4A represents the 11 area agencies on aging in Kansas, covering all 105 counties. MCO role remains unclear

Coatney, who also is president of the Statewide Independent Living Council of Kansas board of directors, said the centers did not bid on the contract. Instead, she said, they signed letters of support for K4A. “We don’t know how all

this is going to play out,” Coatney said. “But we’ve always had good relations with the folks on the aging side, so we’re excited for them and we look forward to working with them.” Coatney said most people involved in services for the state’s frail elderly and physically disabled think K4A was the sole bidder for the contract. Ami Hyten, assistant director with the Topeka Independent Living Resource Center, said she doubted the managed care companies, also known as MCOs, would be interested in subcontracting their case management services. “The purpose of managed care is to identify and contain costs, and to the extent that case managers set up plans of care and utilization — I wouldn’t expect the MCOs to abrogate that,” Hyten said. “They haven’t in other states.” Spokespersons for the managed care companies declined comment, instead referring questions to officials at the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, the agency that oversees Medicaid finance. “Case management is the responsibility of the (managed care) plans, either directly or indirectly. We are working with the plans on how that will be operationalized,” said Kari Bruffett, the agency’s director of health care finance.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The organizer of a training workshop for dozens of evangelical pastors and church leaders said Wednesday that he has moved the event out of the Kansas House because of the expected number participants, but he rejected a national group’s charge that it would improperly mix government with religion. Organizer Dave DePue said the three-day “transforming revival” workshop will be held this week at the Topeka Performing Arts Center, a few blocks from the Statehouse, because 180 people want to participate, more than the floor of the House chamber can accommodate comfortably. The Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of the Washington-based group Americans for Separation of Church and State, had criticized the event, saying he has never heard of a working legislative chamber in a statehouse being used to promote Christianity or any religion. “This is almost like turning the seat of government over temporarily to a religious group,” said Lynn, an ordained United Church of Christ minister. “It’s startling to me to even hear about it.” DePue said the event won’t have a political agenda but focus on helping pastors and other church leaders strengthen community work in tough economic times. He is state director for Capitol Commission, a Raleigh, N.C., nonprofit group that puts pastors in Statehouses to advise policymakers. “I wouldn’t last a day up here if I got political,” said DePue, who frequently visits the Statehouse. “The whole purpose is to help families, churches and communities.” Organizers of the event in the House chamber describe it as a “beginner’s

“ This

is almost like turning the seat of government over temporarily to a religious group, The Rev. Barry Lynn United Church of Christ

course” for Christians interested in transforming their community through a spiritual revival. Workshop sessions were scheduled for today and Friday evening and all day Saturday, with participants paying $100 per person or $190 per couple. Legislators have allowed Christian prayer meetings at the Statehouse regularly in recent years, and Gov. Sam Brownback has been a visible participant in National Day of Prayer events the past two years. DePue said Brownback was set to welcome the workshop participants to Topeka. Also, the state’s Roman Catholic bishops sponsored a rally in June against a federal mandate for health insurance coverage of birth control, drawing thousands of participants. The Statehouse occasionally has been the site of weddings and, in at least one case in recent years, the Senate had a memorial in its chamber for a member who’d died. But the Legislature’s staff couldn’t remember a case in at least 15 years of an event like the workshop being scheduled for one of the two chambers. Such workshops are a program of The Sentinel Group, of Lynwood, Wash. On its website, the group calls itself a research agency “helping the Church pray knowledgeably for end-time global evangelization” and promoting “genuine revival and societal transformation.” Its president is listed as teaching the Kansas workshop.

Sorghum rule may boost ethanol hopes “ We need to continue to expand the base of By BLAKE NICHOLSON Associated Press

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The federal government is on the verge of approving a grain mainly used as livestock feed to make a cleaner version of ethanol, a decision officials say could give farmers a new moneymaking opportunity, boost the biofuels industry and help the environment. A plant in western Kansas already is gearing up to take advantage, launching a multimillion-dollar renovation so it can be the first to turn sorghum — a plant similar in appearance to corn — into advanced ethanol. Advanced biofuels result in even less lifetime greenhouse gas production than conventional biofuels, measuring from the time a crop is planted to when the fuel is burned in a vehicle. The only advanced biofuels in the United States now are sugar cane-based ethanol imported from Brazil and domestic biodiesel, a mixture of petroleum diesel and renewable sources such as soybean oil, said

feedstocks from which we produce biofuel. It’s a good first step. Mike Hartwig, spokesman Renewable Fuels Association

Matt Hartwig, spokesman for the Renewable Fuels Association. Advanced ethanol made from sorghum would give the nation another option as it aims to meet the federal goal of producing 36 billion gallons of renewable fuels per year by 2022. “We need to continue to expand the base of feedstocks from which we produce biofuel,” Hartwig said. “It’s a good first step.” Almost all the ethanol produced in the U.S. now is conventional ethanol made from corn starch. Critics of the ethanol industry complain too much corn is going to energy production, resulting in higher food prices for consumers. Corn affects food prices in

— and therefore more revenue — for their case management and home-health programs. Currently, the centers are allowed to assess a physically disabled person’s needs, serve as the case manager and provide the services. “When we did our KanCare public forums last year, we had a lot of (Medicaid) providers say we should look at separating the services — that it might be OK for someone to do the assessment and the case management, but it wasn’t OK to have someone doing case management and direct care,” Sullivan said. “Part of the ADRC is in response to that.” The concern about potential conficts of interest has centered on the centers for independent living. The area aging agencies assess the needs of the frail elderly and often serve as case managers, but unlike the centers for independent living, none of them provide in-home care. Instead, the frail elderly receive services from individuals hired by the seniors or employed by home health agencies. “Objectivity has always been one of our core values,” said Julie Govert Walter, who runs the 18-county North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging in Manhattan. “We’re not getting paid to provide a service in somebody’s home, so there’s no incentive to say they need a whole bunch of services they may not really need.” In Kansas, Medicaid provides home and community-based services for about 5,400 frail elders, 6,100 people with physical disabilities and 400 people with brain injuries. The new system will not apply to people with developmental disabilities who receive in-home Medicaid services. Their needs will continue to be assessed by one of the state’s 28 Community Developmental Disability Organizations.


multiple ways because it’s a widely used ingredient in food manufacturing and it’s used to feed livestock. More grain sorghum going to fuel production is unlikely to spark the same complaints, because it is not the main ingredient in a number of foods. While it can be used in human food, it’s sold mainly to feed poultry, cattle and other livestock. Sweet sorghum produces edible syrup. Sorghum also has environmental advantages. It is more tolerant of drought than other crops, including corn, and it produces about the same amount of ethanol per bushel as corn while requiring one-third less water. It’s less often used than

corn in conventional ethanol because corn is much more plentiful, Hartwig said — U.S. corn acres this year outnumber sorghum acres about 16 to one. Also, most ethanol plants are in the Corn Belt focused around Iowa and Illinois, while sorghum is grown primarily in the central and southern Great Plains. Along with Kansas, the top producers are Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas. The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that ethanol made from grain sorghum can qualify as an advanced biofuel if it’s made at plants with the proper green technology. The agency has taken public comments and will issue a final determination later. No time frame has been set. Its approval would make sorghum-based ethanol more attractive because advanced ethanol commands a higher price than conventional, said Chris Cogburn, strategic business director for the National Sorghum Producers.

D.A. probe of private meetings near completion TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas prosecutor is wrapping up his investigation of private meetings between Gov. Sam Brownback and state legislators at the governor’s official residence. An assistant says Shawnee County District Attor-

ney Chad Taylor expects to report his findings by the end of the week. Brownback held seven dinner meetings in January at Cedar Crest with members of 13 legislative committees, most of them fellow Republicans. More

than 90 lawmakers were invited. Taylor, a Democrat, has been investigating whether the gatherings violated the state’s open meeting laws. Many legislators have described the dinners as so-

cial events, and Brownback has expressed confidence that no laws were broken. But the governor has acknowledged that he set up the meetings to discuss his legislative agenda and that he took questions from lawmakers.

Guillain-Barre similar to polio Dear Dr. Donohue: This is my third attempt to get information on GuillainBarre syndrome, of which I am a victim. Please put it in layperson’s terminology. Several doctors have told me they can do nothing for me. — V.A. Answer: Guillain (geeYAWN)-Barre (buh-RAY) syndrome is an illness with a superficial resemblance to polio. It brings on muscle weakness and paralysis. It is not polio, and is not a viral disease. It’s a nerve disorder in which the insulating material around nerves is lost. That leads to a short-circuiting of nerve signals and

Dr. Paul Donohue To Your Good Health a loss of muscle function. GB is, as a rule, preceded by a mild respiratory or digestive-tract illness three weeks before its symptoms appear. The assumption is that the preceding illness primes the immune system to make antibodies, the immune system’s ammunition, against nerve insulation. The first signs

of trouble are peculiar sensations in the toes or feet. Then muscle weakness sets in, starting in the feet and legs, and ascending up the body. GB can paralyze the breathing muscles. When that happens, the patient must be put on a ventilator. In about two weeks, 50 percent of patients reach their low point. By four weeks, 90 percent have reached the low point. From that time on, recovery begins. Most people make a complete recovery in weeks to months. About 10 percent are left with one or more permanent disabilities. Three percent to

5 percent die. Two treatments have proven effective. One is the infusion of IVIG, intravenous immunoglobulin. The other is plasma exchange, a procedure in which some of the liquid part of blood, plasma, is removed and replaced with saline and albumin (a protein). It’s the plasma where antibodies are found. I gather from other parts of your letter that you have been left with a permanent disability. Have you contacted a neurologist or a physical medicine doctor? Either might be able to provide treatment for you.

Bride doesn’t want dad at wedding Dear Carolyn: Father is elderly and in poor health. Has been verbally abusive to me my entire life as well as a control freak. After getting into yet another argument on the phone, we’re not speaking. I’m getting married and seriously not feeling him at my wedding since he will inevitably turn it into his day; he has a perverse need for attention that has disrupted many major milestones and events in my family, including my mother’s funeral. Am I being too rigid about this? He’s so negative about everything I do, I can’t take it anymore — especially on my wedding day. — Dilemma Answer: Then don’t. I won’t give you any lines about “your day” or “you deserve the wedding of your dreams” or etc., because I just ate. Plus, a wedding-based sense of entitlement only distracts from what matters and opens you to regrets down the road. What matters is what you need to satisfy this goal: Take care of yourself. One of the most crucial roles a parent plays is of protector — yet children of abusers need protection from parents. All these kids, to some degree, are forced to protect themselves. Once your father gave you the job of watching your own back, you earned the right to keep it. That means you’re free to go into any event involving your dad, no matter how significant, with an eye to what’s best for you. Guiltfree. So. The question becomes, what’s best for you? Or, if it’s useful to think of it this way, which choice is least likely to ripen into lasting regret? It’s not a black-and-white choice. Even a decision not to engage with him ever again can be served both by including him and by shutting him out. Predicting the future is also, obviously, a gray busi-

ness at best. But you know your nature, and his. You know how he’ll probably respond if excluded (or not); you know whether this response scares you (or not); you know how it feels both to indulge him and to deny him; you know whether unfinished business tends to haunt you (or not). So, you have an idea which choice will have the lowest emotional cost to you. And that’s the one I advise you to make. Dear Carolyn: I live abroad, in a city that is wellknown for its night life and narcotics. My husband was deeply involved in that scene “back home”; part of why we moved away was to give him a chance to start over. He’s made a sincere effort to change and has made some progress, but it’s a long, complicated process. Now, an “old friend” of ours (more of an acquaintance) is thinking of coming here on her globe-trotting journey, and I have no doubt the “night life and narcotics” are a major attraction for her. Do we offer her a place to stay, or do we avoid temptation and have her stay somewhere else? I worry that if she

were to stay here, she’d drag him into some sort of trouble, but I know I can’t build walls around my husband and he has to learn self-control. If it matters, she was more my acquaintance than his, so it’s really up to me to respond. — An Expat in Party Town Answer: For your husband’s fresh start, you moved to Ibiza? Tell your friend that you and your husband are trying to break away from the club scene; no need to single him out. Then, say you’re asking would-be house guests to

stay in hotels, to minimize temptation; you hope she understands. TMI? Maybe. But there’s no shame in being tempted or in fighting it, so who cares if this acquaintance knows? And while you’re right that you can’t isolate your husband, it’s also just common sense to avoid obvious temptations until he’s at the sturdier end of this “long, complicated process.” As you know, there are few temptations more powerful than someone who rationalizes the behavior you’re trying to leave behind.

DAILY CRYPTOQUOTES - Here’s how to work it:

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.

This image from NASA’s Curiosity rover looks south of the rover’s landing site on Mars towards Mount Sharp. This is part of a larger, high-resolution color mosaic made from images obtained by Curiosity’s Mast Camera. In this version of the image, colors have been modified as if the scene were transported to Earth and illuminated by terrestrial sunlight. This processing, called “white balancing,” is useful for scientists to be able to recognize and distinguish rocks by color in more familiar lighting.

Scientists plot driving routes for Mars rover RETAIL MEATS By ALICIA CHANG AP Science Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NASA’s newest rover Curiosity has yet to make its first move on Mars, but scientists said Tuesday they are already mapping out possible driving routes to a Martian mountain. Since landing in Gale Crater near the equator last week, the nuclear-powered rover has been busy getting a head-to-wheel health checkup while parked. It touched down about 5 miles from Mount Sharp where signatures of past water have been spotted at the

base. Its ultimate goal is to scale the lower slopes in search of the chemical building blocks of life to determine whether the environment was favorable for microbial life. The team is “kind of itching to move at this point,” said deputy project scientist Ashwin Vasavada of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which manages the $2.5 billion mission. Scientists have been poring over pictures of the landing site snapped by Curiosity and spacecraft circling overhead. The pebble-

strewn terrain where the rover landed appeared easy to traverse but the landscape gets more rugged the closer to Mount Sharp. The team identified half a dozen potential paths through buttes and mesas that are reminiscent of the southwestern United States. Vasavada estimated it’ll take a year to make the trip to the mountain driving about the length of a football field a day. Along the way, the six-wheel rover will make pit stops to study interesting rocks and scoop up soil. Before Curiosity can ex-

U.S. troops among crash victims KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Seven American troops and four Afghans died in a Black Hawk helicopter crash today in southern Afghanistan, the NATO military coalition said. The Taliban claimed their fighters shot down the aircraft. NATO said it is investigating the cause of the crash. The coalition had no immediate comment on the insurgents’ claim that they shot down the helicopter. Officials in Kandahar province said the helicopter went down in the north of the province. Kandahar is a traditional Taliban stronghold and the spiritual birthplace of the hardline Islamist movement that ruled Afghanistan before being ousted in 2001 by the U.S.-led alliance for sheltering al-Qaida’s terrorist leaders. Among the dead were seven American service members, three members of Afghan security forces and one Afghan civilian interpreter, said Jamie Graybeal, a spokesman for the coalition. He said the aircraft was a UH-60 Black Hawk but declined to give any details of the aircraft’s mission Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi said insurgent fighters shot down the helicopter in Kandahar province this morning. “Nobody survived this,” Ahmadi told The Associated Press by phone. The helicopter went down in Kandahar’s Shah Wali Kot district, which lies in the northern part of the province, a spokesman for the provincial government said. “We don’t know if it was shot down by the Taliban, or if it had mechanical problems,” said the spokes-

man, Ahmad Jawed Faisal. Today’s crash is the deadliest since a Turkish helicopter crashed into a house near the Afghan capital, Kabul, March 16, killing 12 Turkish soldiers on board and four Afghan civilians on the ground, officials said. In August last year, insurgents shot down a Chinook helicopter, killing 30 American troops, mostly

elite Navy SEALs, in Afghanistan’s central Wardak province. At least 221 American service members have been killed in Afghanistan so far this year.

plore, it has to go through a laborious check of its tools and systems. As the most complex spacecraft sent to Mars, it landed using a novel routine that involved lowering it to the surface by cables. It just completed an upgrade to its computers and planned to take its first, albeit short, test drive in several days. Engineers still have to test the rover’s robotic arm and drill later this month before giving the keys to scientists. “We’re trying to just keep our eyes on the prize and finish these checkouts and then get going,” said Vasavada.
