Under the stipulation of a Public Building Commission bond, the money will not be available for the day-to-day operations of the hospital, but rather to help pay off loans. Allen County commissioners approved up to $30 million in PBC bonds for the new hospital. Of that, $5 million is for a working capital loan once the hospital backs away from the HCA money

News from Moran Norma Stahl passed along some sad news this week. Lloyd “Stretch” Vasterling of Rehoboth, Mass., has passed away. He graduated in 1951 from Moran High School and returned many times through the years for alumni reunions and other special occasions. He joined the Navy, married a Boston girl and had three children. His family will bring him back to Moran for a memorial service next summer. Another Moran alumnus, Colleen Lincicome of


Cheryl Wallis 237-4433 Victorville, Calif., also passed away last week. Approximately 65 young adults have attended the first two Fifth Quarter sessions of the year. The events follow each Marmaton Valley High School home football game. Students have a lesson, fellowship and refreshments.

The Aug. 31 lesson focused on Tim Tebow’s Christianity. He often writes Scripture on his cheeks where most other players wear eye black. The lesson for week two was “I Feel Good All Under,” using integrity as the theme. Judy Welch serves as the sponsor. She is assisted by other adults who bring in plenty of food. Big thanks go to Dr. Frank Porter and Dr. Daniel Meyers for their work with my husband, Jerry Wallis, and his healed toe. He still has 10.

Strike grinds into third day CHICAGO (AP) — The public teachers’ strike that has halted classwork and upset family routines across Chicago ground into a third day today with some movement reported by union and school board negotiators but no sign of an imminent deal. Union leaders planned to meet this morning to review a new, comprehensive proposal from school board negotiators that addresses all the issues still on the table. The board has requested either a written response or a comprehensive counterproposal from the union. But the teachers Tuesday were lowering expectations for an agreement, buoyed by energetic rallies in which even parents inconvenienced by the strike waved placards in support. Other unions were joining in, with school custodian representatives saying their members will walk off the job this week as well. Board President David Vitale, the lead schools negotiator, said early in the day that a deal could be reached, but union President Karen Lewis and her colleagues emerged from the talks accusing the board of having dug in its heels with its new proposal. Among the biggest remaining issues are a new teacher evaluation system and a process for deciding which laid-off teachers can be rehired. “There’s been — let’s put it this way — centimeters (of progress) and we’re still kilometers apart,” said Lewis, who earlier stated it was “lunacy” to think the issues could be wrapped up quickly. School officials also took steps to prepare for a long haul, despite persistent assertions by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and others that the strike was “unnecessary” and could be resolved quickly. The school district in the country’s third largest city announced that, beginning Thursday, the 147 drop-off centers where students can get free breakfast and a morning of supervision will be open six hours a day rather than four.

There’s been — let’s put it this way — centimeters (of progress) and we’re still kilometers apart. — Karen Lewis, Chicago teachers union president

By DON BABWIN Associated Press

Vitale said late Tuesday that the two sides had held extensive discussions on the teacher evaluation system. But he questioned the seriousness of the union negotiators, noting that they had encouraged the protesting teachers to enjoy themselves at a rally during the day. As the teachers walk the picket lines, they have been joined by parents who are scrambling to find a place for children to pass the time or for baby sitters. Mothers and fathers — some with their kids in tow — are marching with the teachers. Other parents are honking their encouragement from cars or planting yard signs that announce their support in English and Spanish. Unions are still hallowed organizations in much of Chicago, and the teachers union holds a special place of honor in many households where children often grow up to join the same police, firefighter or trade unions as their parents and grandparents. “I’m going to stay strong, behind the teachers,” said the Rev. Michael Grant, who joined educators on the picket line Tuesday. “My son says he’s proud; ‘You are supporting my teacher.’” But one question looming over the contract talks is whether parents will continue to stand behind teachers if students are left idle for days or weeks. That ticking clock could instill a sense of urgency in the ongoing negotiations. Mary Bryan, the grandmother of two students at Shoop Academy on the city’s far South Side, supports the teachers because she sees “the frustration, the overwork they have.” A protracted labor battle, she acknowledged, would

“test the support” of many families. Parents “should stick with them, but they might demand teachers go back to work,” Bryan added. To win friends, the union has engaged in something of a publicity campaign, telling parents repeatedly about problems with schools and the barriers that have made it more difficult to serve their kids. They cite classrooms that are stifling hot without air conditioning, important books that are unavailable and insufficient supplies of the basics, such as toilet paper. “They’ve been keeping me informed about that for months and months,” Grant said. It was a shrewd tactic, said Robert Bruno, professor of labor and employment relations at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “This union figured out they couldn’t assume the public would be on their side, so they went out and actively engaged in getting parent support,” Bruno said. “They worked like the devil to get it.”

Caroll Fred Tippie

Caroll Fred “Tip” Tippie, 72, passed away Monday, Sept. 10, 2012, at his home, surrounded by his family.

He served his country in the United States Army from 1961 to 1964. Tip was united in marriage to Patricia Jean Anderson on Oct. 18, 1964, in Elsmore. They made their home in Humboldt. Tip proudly served local grocers and merchants by ensuring the delivery of fresh bread and baked products as a route representative for Wonder Bread, retiring from the Parsons route after 32 years. He was a member of the Chanute American Legion, and had served as past master of the Masonic Temple of Humboldt. Tip was an

The recipe for a great dog is long and complicated, but now we’ll add a couple of more ingredients. Add Ingredients: “Wait” Health Care - Vaccinations, Worming and Proper Nutrition

Directions: The “Wait” command is really useful because it will teach a dog to have patience and treat you, the owner, as a leader. Again, this command is taught in incremental steps. give the “Sit” command and when the rear hits the ground, say “Wait”. Just adding the “wait” word, extends the time between sit and treat. Sometimes it can be helpful, once the pup has a security of knowing that the treat will be coming, to hide the treat behind your back so that the pup cannot jump up and snatch it from your hand. Be patient, extend the wait time a bit at a time, and do several repetitions in two or three short training sessions each day. Once your dog has learned to wait, many trainers recommend using the command at mealtimes. Again, this is a kind but firm way to reinforce the owner’s position as a leader.

Learning is hard work and good health and nutrition are integral to the process. Consult your veterinarian and schedule vaccinations and worming to maintain your puppy’s good health. When it comes to nutrition, the phrase “garbage in, garbage out” comes into play. Low quality food may result in excessive hunger, malnutrition and large, loose stools. A puppy can eat a barrel of poor food and still not be gaining the appropriate nutrients for proper growth and brain development. Poor food does not satisfy hunger. An overly hungry animal cannot concentrate to learn. Worms and other internal parasites will interfere with nutrient absorption, also.

To have a great dog you will need to do everything possible to have the best puppy ever. Research indicates that the average backyard dog will learn about 75 words in their liftetime, an indoor dog living with a family, interacting constantly, will learn 200 words, and, of course, Border Collies average 400 words (they are just that smart). Good health and constant positive interaction will help the puppy’s brain to grow to it’s maximum potential. Teach positively, with love, enthusiasm and patience, and instead of being the person who says “I love puppies, they are so cute” you can say “I love my dog, she is so great”. With any luck, you will have your dog much longer than the puppy stage and enjoy all of it’s life. Consult the veterinarians at

ing its portion of the $25 million building project from $18.2 million to $17.6 million. Streeter credits Allen County’s location, with a wealth of subcontractors in the area, in addition to Iola’s proximity to Kansas City, Wichita and other metropolitan areas. “We’ve gotten a good combination, which has helped with costs.� THE


65,000-square-foot building project is designed with an eye toward efficiency, easy access and potential expansion. While the existing hospital has more interior space, it sits in a smaller footprint because of its second floor and basement areas. The new hospital will feature a pair of angled wings, one dedicated for 22 patient rooms, emergency room and radiology area; the other for the administration wing, physical therapy area, hospital pharmacy,

meeting room/storm shelter and mechanical hub of the medical center. “Technically, it’s two separate buildings,� Streeter said, necessary to ensure the load-bearing walls remain structurally sound. The wings will be connected by a large entrance area. The building design provides “straight shots� for nurses, patients and other hospital visitors, Streeter explained, with easy access throughout the building. The northernmost regions of the building will be designed to account for expansion, in case a medical arts building comes to fruition. BASED OUT OF Over-

land Park, Murray Construction’s primary focus is rural hospital construction. “This is what we do,� Streeter said. “We don’t mess with big-city hospitals.� Murray has overseen hospital building projects in Parsons, Wilson County and Greensburg. The Greensburg hospital

played a role in Allen County Hospital’s design in some parts, Streeter explained. Like the Greensburg building, Allen County’s building will include a large storm shelter, with reinforced concrete walls and ceiling, strong enough to withstand an EF-4 twister and large enough to hold all of the hospital’s staff, patients and others on hand at any given time. When not used as a shelter, the area will serve as a meeting room. WITHIN THE next few days, work will begin on the hospital’s asphalt parking lot. Again, the goal is to have much of it complete before winter arrives. “It’ll be a lot easier for trucks to get in here on blacktop than mud,� Street-

er said. The asphalt lot and driveways will wait for 100 percent completion until the hospital’s masonry exterior is finished, either late this year or early next spring. “We don’t want the black top all the way up the building yet,� Streeter said. “Masonry work tends to be a bit messy.� OTHER WORK, such as utility extensions to the hospital have been complete for weeks. All that remains there is to tie the utility lines to the building when necessary. Streeter lauded the cooperation and assistance offered by the city, county and local subcontractors. “They’ve really made this project go very well for us,� he said.

Dead Gitmo detainee identified


It will take a few months before we get a nice, even cash flow. The first three months will be tough. — Larry Peterson Hospital chief financial officer


MIAMI — The detainee found dead in a maximumsecurity cell at Guantanamo was a long-despairing Yemeni captive with a history of suicide attempts who at one time won a federal judge’s release order, only to see his case overturned on appeal and rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court. The detention center on Tuesday identified the dead captive as Adnan Farhan Abdul Latif, in his 30s, held since January 2002 as prisoner No. 156. He was found unconscious in his cell at the prison’s Camp 5 Saturday afternoon, the military said. Guards and military medical staff could not revive him. He was the ninth detainee to die in the 11 years of the detention center. The military withheld Latif ’s identity while the Naval Criminal Intelligence Service began an investigation and the Obama administration arranged to notify his family

through of the new hospital at their next meeting on Sept. 25. They also will discuss the hospital’s future business plan, using past performance data as much as possible without violating its current operating agreement with HCA, whose headquarters are in Nashville, Tenn. Still to come is a meeting of minds on if the new hospital should have a new name and what the color scheme of its logo should be. The fundraising arm of the hospital, Uniting for Excellence, will unveil its efforts to date at a gathering from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Allen County Country Club.

as well as Congress of the death. Latif was not one of Guantanamo’s best known captives. He had never been charged with a war crime, and he was cast at best as an al-Qaida foot soldier in the Defense Department’s own military intelligence assessments obtained by McClatchy Newspapers from WikiLeaks. But his lawyers for years portrayed him as a pitiful prisoner — both in the media and in court documents — who frequently tried to kill or harm himself and spent long periods confined to the prison’s psychiatric ward. A frequent hunger striker, he would smear his excrement on himself, throw blood at his lawyers, and on at least one occasion was brought to meet his lawyer clad only in a padded green garment called a “suicide smock� held together by Velcro, said attorney David Remes of Washington, D.C., who defended Latif without charge. Fellow pro-bono defender Marc Falkoff recounted Tuesday that in August 2008, “He was the guy that we tried unsuccessfully to get medical records for, and a blanket and mattress, after we found him lying on the floor of our interview cell, weak and emaciated.� That 2008 court effort failed. A judge found that the federal courts could not interfere with Guantanamo captives’ conditions

of confinement. Pakistani security forces captured Latif near the Afghan-Pakistan border in late 2001, one of many men believed to be foreign fighters who were turned over to U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Latif had maintained his innocence, consistently arguing he had suffered a head injury in a car accident as a youth in Yemen and left his impoverished homeland in search of charitable Muslim medical treatment and ended up in Afghanistan. U.S. District Judge Henry Kennedy ordered Latif ’s release on July 21, 2010, in a 32-page order that ruled that the government had failed to show by a preponderance of evidence that the Yemeni man was part of al-Qaida or an associated force at the time of his capture. The Justice Department, however, appealed and won a 2-1 reversal that set aside Kennedy’s release order. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit gave the benefit of the doubt to government intelligence reports and ruled that Latif probably had sought military training in an al-Qaida camp. The ruling made it easier for the government to fend off Guantanamo habeas corpus petition by adopting a new, liberal standard for evaluating government evidence.

Monday proved all things are possible Iola will begin to grow. Builders will rush in to create new subdivisions. Wages will increase steadily at our flourishing industries and businesses. All of our children will be above average. That’s not all. The Kansas Legislature will reform its tax code to produce tons more money so that public school funding can be restored to pre-recession levels and increased from there to assure excellence in our classrooms as the nation’s best teachers flock to Kansas. Tomorrow, or maybe today, will see an end to negative political advertising. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama will meet for lunch every Wednesday just to chat about their wives and kids and how lucky they are. Democrats and Republicans will issue statements explaining precisely, in sixth-grade vocabularies, what

they will do if elected. All of industry in every country will cut their production of greenhouse gases by half and agree to do better next year. Daytime highs in Iola will drop to 85 in July and August and hover around 50 in February. Syrians and Afghanis will stop killing each other. All of these impossible dreams will come true because the world learned late Monday afternoon and early evening that anything can happen in this year of Our Lord, 2012. That revelation was given to us by Andy Murray when he defeated Novak Djokovic in a five-hour, five-set tennis match to win the U.S. Open and become the first Brit to win a grand slam tournament in 76 years. Thank you, Andy. Thank you very much. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

Slap on the wrist for KC diocese Considering the severe sanctions imposed on Penn State University after Jerry Sandusky’s perverted criminal activities came to light, the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph should consider itself fortunate. In Happy Valley, well-respected and high-ranking figures lost their jobs for glossing over the assistant coach’s repeated acts of pedophilia. Financial penalties and post-season bans will affect Penn State for years. Such was the outrage created by the notion that anybody would turn a blind eye to the sexual abuse of children. Kansas City Bishop Robert Finn discovered Thursday his penalty for failing to report suspected child abuse under his watch. The bishop was handed two years of probation, although if he follows through on court-ordered conditions, the guilty verdict will be wiped from his record. The conditions include Finn attending training on abuse reporting, instructing others in the diocese to report suspicions of such activity, and for the diocese to pay $10,000 to counsel victims of abuse. Finn was acquitted on a second count and the court dropped two charges against

the diocese itself. The bishop’s case was brought forward after the Rev. Shawn Ratigan pleaded guilty to producing and attempting to produce child pornography. That priest faces a sentence of life imprisonment. Aside from the troubling notion of simply not reporting any suspected child abuse, was the time period involved — 2011. Since 2002, the Catholic Church has been dealing with child molestation issues in a very public manner. Billions of dollars have been spent compensating victims, prompting many dioceses to go bankrupt. Tens of millions of dollars have been spent by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to improve safety for children. Hundreds of clergy have been removed and barred from any church work. It’s not a new issue. Particularly not for Judge John Torrence, who handled Bishop Finn’s trial. The judge is a member of St. Elizabeth Catholic Church, part of the same diocese. Finn — and the diocese — dodged a bullet on this one. We can only pray the lesson is learned. — The Hays Daily News

On 9/11, Washington as usual WASHINGTON — There was something for every taste in the Washington area on Tuesday. The National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts was having its fundraising gala at the Mayflower Hotel. The House Oversight Committee was holding yet another hearing probing mismanagement at the Justice Department. A launch event was scheduled for a provocative new book, “The End of Men.” The finale of a Mason Dixon Master Chef Tournament got under way in Columbia, Md., a group called “Teen Mom” played the Velvet Lounge on U Street, and there was another installment of the “Funny Films Lunch Show” at the Landmark E Street Cinema. Washingtonians had so much to do, in fact, that they may have had little time to think about what else was happening Tuesday: the 11th anniversary of the killing of 3,000 people in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Nine-eleven just wasn’t what it used to be. Residents of the capital awoke to another clear Tuesday morning, just like that one 11 years ago, and they found that the day that changed the nation was becoming more and more ordinary. In some ways, this is a good thing: Osama bin Laden is dead, al-Qaeda isn’t as scary, and Sept. 11, 2001, is on its way to joining Dec. 7, 1941 — more historical, less raw. Yet it was also unsettling that the day was losing its power to make Americans pause. This is part of the general amnesia that led Mitt Romney to deliver his acceptance speech for the Republican presidential nomination without mentioning a country called Afghanistan. “I’m very surprised there’s not a pronounced effort to reflect on that day,” Amjad Khan told me at the Rayburn House Office Building on Monday. “It comes and

Osama bin Laden is dead, al-Qaeda isn’t as scary, and Sept. 11, 2001, is on its way to joining Dec. 7, 1941 — more historical, less raw.

Dana Milbank Washington Post Writers Group goes as if it was just another day, but it wasn’t just another day.” Khan is one of the few to make sure 9/11 is still about 9/11: His Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a liberal group, runs a “Muslims for Life” blood drive with the Red Cross to honor victims of the attacks; he collected 25 pints at Rayburn Monday morning. Khan said he feels an “acute sense of obligation” because the terrorists were Muslim, but he wonders why people weren’t doing more to remember. “It’s a tough year, with the election cycle,” he said, “but you can’t forget.” Several events were to be held in Washington, as in New York and elsewhere, to commemorate the day, including a memorial in the Capitol. President Obama observed a moment of silence at the White House before he went to the Pentagon for a commemoration, and there was to be a 9/11 Day of Service in Freedom Plaza on Pennsylvania Avenue. But for each of those, there was one of these: Sen. Tom Coburn, ROkla., was to speak to the Ripon Society at the National Republican Club of Capitol Hill on the topic “Defusing the Debt Bomb and the 2012 Election.” The debt “bomb” matters, but on 9/11, it sounds tacky. The sheer volume of events shows how ordinary the day has become: Public-housing directors

were having a legislative forum, health insurance companies were meeting to talk Medicare, CPAs were having a banking conference, the Cato Institute was attacking the IRS, a health group was recognizing Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month, and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was talking about the elderly. There were events around town to discuss Mexico, Iran, Syria, Israel, India, the Caucasus and Pakistan. Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies was having a forum on “The Business of Sanitation.” On Capitol Hill, the Ways and Means Committee was holding another hearing on Obamacare, and the House Natural Resources Committee was bravely taking up the Frank Buckles World War I Memorial Act. Perhaps we couldn’t expect the Orioles not to take the field at Camden Yards on Tuesday night. And it didn’t seem terribly harmful for the Urban Land Institute to mark 9/11 by holding a day-long conference on “walkable urban places.” Less easy to understand is why Jeff Faile from Fiola restaurant chose 9/11 to give a “cocktail seminar” at A.M. Wine Shoppe (featured aperitifs: Cocchi Americano and Aperol). The nerve! Didn’t he know he was competing with the arts gala at the Mayflower?

Cancer foes raise the ante The University of Kansas Cancer Center and member hospitals of the Midwest Cancer Alliance are not resting on their laurels now that the cancer center has earned National Cancer Institute designation. Rather, several of the MCA hospitals, including Stormont-Vail HealthCare, are doubling down on investments they have made to ensure results of their work are accessible to cancer patients. The Midwest Cancer Alliance is a network of hospitals, physician groups, research institutions and cancer support and patient advocacy organizations. Its goal is to promote networking among cancer care professionals, advance cancer research and enhance patient access to cancer resources and clinical trials. Earlier in this space, we recognized the years of effort the University of Kansas Cancer Center devoted to earning the NCI designation, which was announced in July. Now, we recognize the contributions of hospitals that

supported the effort and their continuing devotion to making the results of the best cancer research available to those who can directly benefit from it. Stormont-Vail HealthCare, Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, Truman Medical Centers and the University of Kansas Hospitals have been contributing $500,000 a year to assist the University of Kansas Cancer Center in its quest for NCI designation. Cancer center director Roy A. Jensen said the NCI designation wouldn’t have been possible without the hospitals’ participation. Earlier this week, those four hospitals announced they were raising their annual contribution to $1 million. All the hospitals deserve much credit for their past and future work with the cancer center and Topekans should feel proud that one of their local hospitals has played a vital role in assisting the cancer center through the NCI designation period and continues to play a role in research projects

and bringing the results of that research to patients. The importance of medical research cannot be overstated, but the real value of that research cannot be realized unless it reaches patients. The University of Kansas Cancer Center, MCA member hospitals and other MCA members know that and apparently are ready to work harder than ever to bring the benefits of their research to those who need it. Stormont-Vail HealthCare has been developing a research project to evaluate the impact of a community-based care program and offering clinical trials designed by researchers at the cancer center. Other hospitals that are raising their financial contribution to $1 million annually are participating in different research projects and clinical trials. We would say it looks like a great team effort, but it has been that for years. The players are just raising the stakes and deserve credit doing so. — The Topeka Capital-Journal

US ambassador to Libya killed Three other Americans also die By NED PARKER Los Angeles Times

CAIRO — The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were reported killed as a mob sacked the U.S. Consulate in eastern Libya in a rage over an antiMuslim video produced in the United States, according the Stevens State Department. Early this morning, President Obama released a statement: “I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.” Obama concluded his statement saying, “The brave Americans we lost represent the extraordinary service and sacrifices that our civilians make ev-

ery day around the globe. As we stand united with their families, let us now redouble our own efforts to carry their work forward.” Wanis al-Sharif, Libya’s deputy minister of the interior, told the Associated Press that Stevens and three others had died as the crowd torched the consulate in Benghazi hours after demonstrators scaled the wall of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in protest over the anti-Muslim video. A Twitter message from Libya’s deputy prime minister, Mustafa Abu Shagur, condemned the death of Stevens and the other American personnel killed in the attack. The protesters in Benghazi set fire to the consulate and fired guns into the air in protest over the film, according to Reuters reporters on the scene. Looters reportedly grabbed desks, chairs and even washing machines from the empty compound. Egyptian protesters had earlier gathered at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in protest over a video that they said mocked the prophet Muhammad, claiming it had been made by Egyptian Coptic immigrants in the U.S. The Cairo protesters pulled down the U.S. flag, and in its place raised a black flag that read: “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet” before Egyptian

security forces sought to tame the crowd. As night fell, protesters continued to gather outside the embassy in one of the biggest demonstrations in the city since the fall of Hosni Mubarak’s government early last year. Security forces surrounded the embassy compound to prevent protesters from again storming it, though some demonstrators remained on the wall, waving black flags. As many as 2,000 demonstrators rallied outside the embassy in a gathering called by the conservative Islamic Salafist movement. Before the rally, the private Al Nas television channel, run by Salafists, played some of the video posted on YouTube, which a host and a commentator said insulted Islam. The video shown on the channel refers to Muhammad and his followers as “child lovers.” It also shows the prophet speaking to a supposed Muslim donkey, asking him whether he loves women. The channel’s enraged host and a commentator then demanded to know how Islam could be treated in such a debasing way. The video has been promoted online by Florida preacher Terry Jones, whose 2011 burning of a Koran triggered riots in Afghanistan. In a statement, Jones called the assault on the embassy in Egypt proof that Muslims “have no tolerance for anything outside of Muhammad.” Nader Bakar, a spokesman of the Al Nour party, the political arm of the Salafist movement, denied any involvement in the uproar. “We were there for a couple of hours in a peaceful protest,” said Bakar,

who had called for the demonstration the day before. “We are against this movie being made to defame the prophet. The U.S. Embassy understood this, and they issued a statement condemning hateful rhetoric.” The embassy in Cairo published a statement online saying, “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. ... Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” The mood during the protests at the embassy was a reminder of the volatility of politics in post-Mubarak Egypt, where, more than ever, rumor can stir people into a frenzy. Suspicion of involvement by Coptic Christians shows how tension between Muslims and Christians still burns. Christians make up about 10 percent of Egypt’s population. “Many of the people here haven’t even seen the movie,” said Mostafa Nageh, a youth who attended the protest. “Most people came out to protest just because they heard that a video insulting the prophet was made in the U.S.” In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday that the breach of the embassy wall “came up pretty quickly” and involved a “relatively modest group of people, but caught probably us and the Egyptian security outside by some surprise.”

Employers see 4% increase in health insurance costs By TONY PUGH McClatchy Newspapers

9/11 victims remembered at Ground Zero NEW YORK — Politicians were on the sidelines early Tuesday as New York City marked the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks at the National September 11 Memorial plaza. The ceremony began at 8:39 a.m. EDT with bagpipers and drummers from the three hardest-hit agencies — the Fire Department of New York, the New York Police Department and the Port Authority Police — leading

people had already gathered for the ceremony. One woman in a gray sweatshirt, clasping her hands, had a large poster filled with photos of a family member with the words “Missing you always,” and “Daddy, we miss you.” On the stage, a moment of silence was observed at 8:46 a.m. — the time 11 years ago when the first plane struck the north tower, and another moment was observed at 9:03 a.m., when the second

the way to the stage. The Young People’s Chorus of New York City performed the national anthem. The reading of the victims’ names began just before 8:50 a.m. and ended about 12:15 p.m. This year, the anniversary was marked by having 200 people, working in pairs, read the names of the nearly 3,000 victims in the plaza near where the World Trade Center towers once stood. Shortly after 7 a.m.,

plane hit the south tower. A third moment of silence at 9:37 a.m. marked the time another plane hit the Pentagon, and there was a fourth moment of silence at 9:59 a.m., the time when the south tower fell. Two final moments of silence were observed at 10:03 a.m., when a fourth plane crashed near Shanksville, Pa., and at 10:28 a.m., marking the fall of the north tower. The program concluded at about 12:30 p.m.

WASHINGTON — The cost of job-based family health insurance continues to tick upward in 2012, increasing faster than employee wages and overall inflation for the 13th straight year, according to a nationwide survey of businesses. For the 149 million workers with employer-sponsored coverage, that typically meant higher co-pays, deductibles and other outof-pocket medical costs, according to the 2012 Employer Health Benefits Survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research & Educational Trust. The study found that lowwage workers are getting squeezed the hardest. After jumping 9 percent in 2011, average annual premiums for family coverage rose 4 percent in 2012, to $15,745. Individual premiums were up an average of 3 percent, to $5,615, after spiking to 8 percent in 2011, the survey said. Still, even as the annual increases slowed in 2012, the growth of family and individual premiums outpaced the nearly 2 percent growth in employee wages and the more than 2 percent rise in general inflation since last year. “In terms of employee insurance costs, this year’s 4 percent increase qualifies as a good year, but it still takes a growing bite of middle-class workers’ wages, which have been flat or falling in real terms,” said Drew Altman, Kaiser Family Foundation’s president and CEO. Annual premiums for family coverage, after averaging slightly more than $8,000 in 2002, have increased nearly 100 percent in the last decade, while costs for individual coverage are up 82 percent. Both dwarf the 33 percent growth in wages and the 28 percent growth in general inflation during the same period. It’s unclear what’s behind this year’s return to moderate growth in premium rates, but they could reflect a correction of sorts for last year’s higher-than-expected rate hikes, said Gary Claxton, a Kaiser vice president. The steep increase last year likely reflected insurers’ expectation of higher benefit payments, as more Americans were expected to seek medical care during the economic recovery, Claxton said. That did not occur, however, and people

continued to put off doctor visits and elective medical procedures last year. But he said the health care law, which went into effect in 2010, did not have a meaningful effect on premiums this year and was not expected to next year, either, since its main provisions don’t kick in until 2014. The survey queried more than 2,000 businesses. This year, 61 percent offer employee health benefits, unchanged from a year ago but down from 68 percent in 2001. Kaiser found that covered workers, on average, pay about $4,316, or nearly 30 percent, toward family coverage, while employers pay nearly 75 percent, or $11, 429. For individual coverage, workers typically pay about 18 percent, or $951, with employers assuming the balance of $4,664. The survey found that employees earning less than $24,000 a year pay about $1,000 more for family coverage than the 35 percent who earn at least $55,000. Low-wage workers are also more likely to pay higher deductibles. But Mercer, a global human resource company that conducts a similar survey, said preliminary results show employers will pay an average of 6.5 percent more per employee for health coverage next year. An estimated 58 percent of employers are expected to shift those increases to employees in response, according to Mercer. In addition, the company found that 16 percent of small companies, with 10 to 499 employees, and 6 percent of large companies, with 500 or more workers, plan to terminate their plans when the health care law is fully implemented. The health care law requires insurers seeking rate increases of 10 percent or more on new policies to disclose the moves publicly and have them reviewed by state or federal officials to determine whether they’re unreasonable. That provision has helped consumers save about $1 billion in premiums, the federal government announced Tuesday. Another rule, requiring that 80 percent of premium payments be spent on health benefits, has provided $1.1 billion in rebates to 13 million consumers; that’s an average rebate of $151 per household, the government said.

Remembrance and tribute Register/Jocelyn Sheets

On the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9-11-2001, fans at Iola’s Allen County Youth Tackle football games Tuesday took time to remember the victims of those attacks and to pay tribute to those who responded and helped that day and for days after, as well as men and women in the U.S. military. It also was the 11th anniversary of the Allen County Youth Tackle Football League. Members of the Iola High football team helped present the flag with the Kansas National Guard 891st Engineer Battalion at Riverside Park’s football stadium.

Royals buzz Twins Lady Titans sweep at home MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Will Smith is probably auditioning for a spot in Kansas City’s rotation next season. Having Salvador Perez as his catcher sure helps his cause. Smith pitched seven shutout innings, Eric Hosmer homered and the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 9-1 on Tuesday night. Lorenzo Cain had two RBIs and was a home run away from the cycle as Kansas City beat Minnesota for just the sixth time in 16 games. Perez extended his hitting streak to a career-best 15 games and threw out two runners trying to steal in support of Smith (5-7),

who struck out a career-high seven and gave up seven hits in his first win in four starts. “That guy’s awesome,” Smith said about Perez. “He’s so good. You love having him back there. You feel confident that the running game, he’s just going to completely shut it down.” Ryan Doumit had the Twins’ RBI and Ben Revere had three hits. Joe Mauer was in the initial starting lineup, but was scratched after experiencing back spasms before batting practice. See ROYALS | B2


Southern Coffey County High’s Lady Titans enjoyed the comfort of home Tuesday. The Lady Titans won both non-league matches in Le Roy. Southern Coffey County beat St. Paul 25-22, 2511 and defeated Marmaton Valley High’s Wildcats 25-16, 25-23. “We started slow against St. Paul but once we stopped trying to force things we settled down and played much better,” said Jeff

True, Lady Titan head coach. “We looked good at times against Marmaton Valley but struggled with our passing accuracy.” Sarah Webb led the Lady Titan net attack with 19 kills and six blocks for the night. Breanna Isch put down eight kills and made six blocks. Amanda Sherwood was credited with 16 set assists and Martyna Hegwald had 11

CHANUTE — Iola Middle School’s girls came up winless in volleyball action here Tuesday against host Royster Middle School’s Rocket teams. The IMS eighth-grade Ponies lost 25-14, 25-21 in A-team play. Toni Macha served five aces and had three kills for the Ponies. Alexis Heslop served three aces while Della Lohman had two ace serves. Riley Murry and Jadyn Sigg each had an ace serve. Sydney Wade was credited with three set assists. Taylor Stout and Brook Storrer each had one assist. Wade and Heslop each had one kill. “I told the girls it was OK to be mad about losing but they should not be at all disappointed in how they played,” said Terri Carlin, IMS eighth-grade coach. “The girls were all over the floor getting to the ball. They were setting it up and hitting the ball almost every time.” Carlin said the A-team just had a few runs of bad passes that hurt it. In B-team play, the IMS eighthgrade lost 25-23, 25-2. Rylee Knavel had two kills, Storrer had three ace serves and Sigg had two ace serves and a kill. Stout had an assist and an ace. Iola’s seventh-grade A-team lost in three sets. Royster won 259, 21-25, 15-6. “The girls fought hard to win this match. We just came up short,” said Stacy Sprague, IMS seventh-grade coach. Madison Carlin served at an 83 percent clip for Iola. Emma Weseloh served at 86 percent and Karly McGuffin was at 67 percent. Colbi Riley was 7 for 7 at the service line. The seventh-grade B-team dropped a 25-3, 25-6 decision. Sophia Whitney and Krista Wilson each were 1-for-1 serving for the Ponies.

Continued from B1 The atmosphere at Target Field brought back memories of the Metrodome, and not only because of all the empty seats for a September game featuring two teams out of contention. With two outs and two runners on in the second inning, Cain hit a towering fly to left field. Josh Willingham lost it in the sky, holding out his hands as the ball fell 15 feet behind him and both runners scored. Outfielders losing flyballs was a common occurrence under the white Teflon roof of the Metrodome, but hasn’t been a problem under the lights at Target Field. “It was just the time of day. It’s frustrat-

ing when you can’t see the ball,” Willingham said. “You can’t catch it if you can’t see it. Can’t see it, it’s pretty helpless.” The miscue didn’t help Scott Diamond (11-7) get back on track. The left-hander allowed four runs and 10 hits over six innings and has just one victory in his last six starts. The first two Twins batters reached in the first, fourth and fifth innings, but they couldn’t break through against Smith. Perez threw out basestealers to help erase the threats in the first and fifth, and Smith got Ryan Doumit to ground into a double play and struck out Trevor Plouffe to end the fourth.

The Twins had 16 stolen bases in their last 11 games, but were no match for Perez’s strong arm and quick release. Jamey Carroll and Darin Mastroianni fell victim to Perez on Tuesday. “It kept the momentum on our side,” manager Ned Yost said about Perez, who has caught 11 of the last 21 runners trying to steal on him. Cain got hit in the head by reliever Luis Perdomo in the eighth. The ball appeared to hit Cain in the back of his helmet as he ducked, but Cain sat up quickly and remained in the game after sitting in the batter’s box and getting checked out by trainers.

“The guys definitely let me know I was a home run away from the cycle,” Cain said. “I was looking for a pitch to drive and ended up getting hit in the head. I went down for a second, but I’ll be fine. Bounced back up and I’ll be ready to go tomorrow.” Cain also said the back of his head was a little sore and he had a light headache. The Royals scored five runs in the eighth and ninth, capped by Hosmer’s 14th home run. Alcides Escobar added two hits and two RBIs. Luke Hochevar (7-13, 5.35) pitches for Kansas City tonight. The former No. 1 overall draft pick needs four strikeouts to match his career high of 128 set last season.

Iola soccer team wins CHANUTE — Iola’s 14-and-under soccer team defeated host Chanute 5-0 last weekend. Five different players scored for Iola. Nolan Jones, Collin Beddell, Braden Plumlee, Zane Beasley and Peter Venter had a goal apiece. Beasley, Braden Plumlee and Parker Smith each had an assist on goals. Zack Kress had three saves in goal. Bret Plumlee and Smith also played in goal.

Governor defends tax cuts Fort Riley honors 9/11 victims “ No answer is perfect. Unquestionably, there

is going to be some difficulty with this. But I think we’ve picked the right change for us to be able to move forward as a state. — Gov. Brownback



Governor Brownback’s tax experiment will bankrupt our state, creating a $2.4 billion shortfall. — Joan Wagnon, Kansas Democratic Party


The tax law will cut individual income tax rates for this year and includes a drop in the top rate from 6.45 percent to 4.9 percent. It exempts the owners of 191,000 partnerships, sole proprietorships and other businesses from income taxes. The cuts are worth $231 million during the current fiscal year, with the figure growing to $803 million for the next fiscal year and eventually rising to $934 million after six years. Brownback acknowledged the cuts will reduce state revenues in the first 18 months. But he projected the reductions will improve the economy in the long run. The governor said he and legislators would adjust to any revenue declines by protecting core functions of public education, Medicaid and prisons. “No answer is perfect,� the governor said. “Unquestionably, there is going to be some difficulty with this. But I think we’ve picked the right change for us to be able to move forward as a state.� Democrats contend the tax cuts will hurt middle and lower income residents by shifting more of the tax

burden to them. “Remember these facts when listening to Governor Brownback try and sell his regressive and unproven tax plan: Governor Brownback’s tax experiment will bankrupt our state, creating a $2.4 billion shortfall that will threaten our public schools and raise middle-class Kansans’ property taxes,� said Joan Wagnon, chairwoman of the Kansas Democratic Party. She said the tax changes give special breaks to wealthier residents and special interests by eliminating $70 million in tax credits used by the middle and lower income residents, such as those for families and senior citizens to offset the food sales tax, child and dependent care and adoption expenses.

FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) — The names of 16 soldiers are now part of a monument near Fort Riley’s Cavalry Parade Field after a ceremony Tuesday to mark the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. The event was held by the 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley. The names joined those of 188 soldiers on the Global War on Terrorism Monument near the U.S. Cavalry Museum at the northeast Kansas Army post. All of the names are of service members who either deployed to combat from Fort Riley or who mobilized through the installation before going to war. The annual event pays tribute to the nearly 3,000 people who were killed in the attacks on New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, as well as the thousands of soldiers who have been killed or wounded in

“ Those attacks were designed to break us

as a nation. Those attacks were designed to change the American way of life. Eleven years later, we’re still standing strong. — Brig. Gen. Don MacWillie senior commander at Fort Riley and 1st Infantry Division


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Gov. Sam Brownback said Monday that it will be challenging to implement new income tax cuts, but he’s c o n f id e n t his administration will make the ad- Gov. Brownback justments and the state economy will grow. The Republican governor spoke to several hundred students, faculty and community residents at the University of Kansas as part of the business school’s lecture series. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Brownback presented charts and graphs outlining the economics of the tax cut and the goal for growth in Kansas. “Stimulate that job-creating market, that wealthcreation system, and the ability for us to create jobs and attract more people,� he said. “That’s the environment we’re trying to create — a pro-growth environment to create jobs and opportunities.� The governor worked with the 2012 Legislature to cut individual income tax rates and eliminate income taxes for owners of nearly 200,000 companies in Kansas. The administration estimates the cuts will generate $2 billion in disposable income, create 23,000 jobs and bring 35,000 people to the state in the coming years.

Iraq and Afghanistan. Brig. Gen. Don MacWillie, senior commander of Fort Riley and the 1st Infantry Division, said the attacks united the United States around a cause, rather than fear. “Those attacks were designed to break us as a nation. Those attacks were designed to change the American way of life. Eleven years later, we’re still standing strong,� MacWillie said. “They did not and will not condemn us to fear.� Fort Riley is home of the 1st Infantry Division and

its more than 18,000 soldiers. There are more than 4,100 soldiers currently deployed, including the division headquarters, which is in command of an area of eastern Afghanistan. MacWillie said that in the 11 years since the attacks, much had changed, including the deaths of Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, as well as the end of the war in Iraq. The ceremony included military music, a moment of silence and the laying of a wreath at the base of the monument.

Former bank VP sentenced

Infant hospitalized WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Police in Wichita say an 8-month-old girl whose mother claimed she had fallen off a bed was really under the influence of methamphetamine. KSNW-TV reports the baby was upgraded to stable condition Tuesday at St. Francis Regional Medical Center. The 34-year-old mother has been arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and possession of drugs and paraphernalia. Police say the mother

called paramedics Monday saying her daughter was unresponsive after falling out of bed. The baby was taken in critical condition to the hospital, where doctors found meth in her system. The baby has been placed in protective custody. A 50-year-old man living at the same extendedstay motel as the mother and child has also been arrested. It wasn’t clear Tuesday how the baby inhaled or ingested meth.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A former bank vice president from Topeka has been sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for bank fraud. Jennifer HughesBoyles also was ordered to pay $712,144 in restitution. Jennifer HughesBoyles pleaded guilty to one count of bank fraud, which occurred in 2011 while she was vice president of Heritage Bank in Topeka.

Temperance union continues its fight against alcohol HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — Much has changed in the 100 years since The Women’s Christian Temperance Union first set up a booth at the Kansas State Fair, but the organization continues to preach its message that people should never use alcohol, tobacco or drugs. Prohibition was in place

in Kansas in 1913 when the state held its first official state fair and one of its vendors was the temperance union. Today, the fair offers a beer garden, and vendors can sell wine by the glass or bottle. But the temperance union’s message has not changed, The Hutchinson News reported (http://bit. ly/TIU4s1).


“Don’t drink alcohol,� said 90-year-old Glenna Dellenbach, the group’s oldest active member. The Women’s Christian Temperance Union, which organized in 1874, led the drive to prohibit the use of alcohol across the country to “protect the home.� It later added tobacco and drugs to its list of dangerous sub-

stances. “Men were going to work and earning money, then spending it all on alcohol,� said Patricia Jackson, of Meade, who has been a member of the organization for eight years. Kansas had statewide prohibition from 1881 to 1948, longer than any other state. The state prohibited

on-premises liquor sales until 1987, and 19 of its 105 counties are “dry,� meaning on-premises liquor sales are prohibited, but the sale of 3.2 percent beer is permitted. Another 65 counties are partially dry, allowing liquor by the drink at establishments with 30 percent food sales. Dellenbach said she thinks the organization

has helped keep Kansas more conservative on alcohol laws than most others states. Currently, the union has 125 members in Kansas but Dellenbach said there is renewed interest in the group’s message. She and others in Meade County restarted a union group in March after a liquor store moved in.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal civil jury trials in the United States probably would grind to a halt if Congress fails to reach a budget deal and $600 billion in automatic spending cuts kick in next year, a leading federal judge said Tuesday. The federal judiciary’s share of the cuts would be more than $500 million if Congress does not reach a budget deal by year’s end to prevent some $1.2 trillion in spending cuts and tax increases from kicking in next year, Chief Judge David Sentelle of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia said. Economists fear that spending cuts and tax increases of that magnitude would produce a shock that could send the economy off what they’ve called a “fiscal cliff.” “Civil jury trials would probably have to be suspended due to a lack of funding,” Sentelle said, following a meeting at the Su-

preme Court of the Judicial Conference, the judiciary’s policy-making arm led by Chief Justice John Roberts. The reason civil jury trials would be suspended is for lack of money to pay jurors, but civil trials before judges without juries probably could continue. The probation system and payment for defense lawyers also could be thrown into disarray, Sentelle said. Already over-burdened “border courts will be hurt the worst,” he said. The judiciary is developing contingency plans to deal with severe budget cutbacks, he said. Those might include closing some entrances to courthouses to save money on security personnel. In a modest cost-cutting move expected to save $1 million a year in rent, the conference also announced that six court facilities in the South will close over the next few years and that more courthouses probably would meet the same fate.

Congress courts vets’ support WASHINGTON (AP) — Both parties are using a brief pre-election session of Congress to make campaign appeals to returning veterans. Senate Democrats are pushing President Barack Obama’s proposed $1 billion Veterans Jobs Corps to relieve high unemployment among servicemen and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. House Republicans are pushing a bill making it a crime to benefit from lying about military services or awards. Lawmakers in both parties agreed this week to come up with more money to help the Veterans Administration reduce a disability claims backlog. Obama proposed a job corps for veterans last February that would put place them in jobs restoring public lands and beefing up local police and fire departments. It cleared a preliminary test vote Tuesday,

as was expected, but aides said progress could easily unravel as lawmakers negotiate what amendments and how many of them will be allowed. Although the legislation is not expected to become law this session, it gives lawmakers a chance to display their support for the nation’s 21 million-plus veterans before Congress adjourns for the campaign season. The unemployment rate for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan has been trending lower in recent months, but hit a bump last month. Joblessness among them was nearly 11 percent in August compared with an 8.1 percent jobless rate nationwide. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida said the problem is likely to grow as troops are withdrawn from Afghanistan. “For the troops, when they come home, the fight is not over. There’s an-

other fight when they get back home to America,” said Nelson, the bill’s lead sponsor who is in a tough re-election contest. “We need to give them as many opportunities as possible to succeed when they get back home here in America.” Nelson said Tuesday he still expects the GOP to try to block the bill. The White House released a statement Tuesday declaring its support for the measure. “Many of these veterans returning home have been unable to find suitable employment commensurate with their training and experience from over ten years of war,” said a statement from the White House Office of Management and Budget. “Furthermore, America’s public lands face enormous unmet infrastructure and facility maintenance needs, and this country’s veterans have the skills to meet these demands.”

Wildfires continue to plague West WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — A haze of thick smoke formed Tuesday over vast swaths of the West as wildfires forced more residents to flee their homes in several states. Fire officials reported seven homes were destroyed and hundreds of people were evacuated near Casper, Wyo., where a wildfire has burned across almost 24 square miles. In western Montana, fire crews said there was no containment in sight for a blaze that has prompted an evacuation order for 400 houses west of Hamilton. With winds dying down, fire crews in eastern Washington were hopeful they could gain ground on dozens of fires sparked by weekend lightning storms, but more evacuation orders were issued Tuesday as a wildfire continued to move in the hills west of Wenatchee, a fruit capital on the banks of the Columbia River. Residents of nearly 120 homes were evacuated due to the fire burning about 140 miles east of Seattle. About 160 firefighters from across the state gathered to help fight the blaze. Resident Shannon Grosdi-

dier and her four daughters delivered oatmeal cookies to several stationed at the end of her street Monday night. “The wind has died down, which is good,” she said. “But I’ve got the photo albums in the car and our overnight bags packed.” Only a shed has been lost near Wenatchee, and no injuries have been reported at what appeared to be the most-threatening of numerous wildfires in the state that were sparked by lightning Saturday. In Montana, Sawtooth Fire spokesman Gregg DeNitto with the U.S. Forest Service said there was no word on when residents there might be allowed to return. The fire exploded over the past two days from just over 1 square mile to more than 6, although no houses were reported lost. “Most of the structures are still a half-mile to a mile from the fire’s edge,” DeNitto said. Firefighters got help from the weather in Wyoming, where cooler temperatures and calmer winds bought time to put more people and equipment into action around two large fires. As many as 750 homes were threatened by the

large wildfire near Casper. Some 400 people were evacuated from 150 homes. Firefighters on Tuesday planned to deploy more than a dozen aircraft against the blaze, including two air tankers and seven helicopters. Blazes have scorched more than 8.1 million acres across the West so far this year, up from the 10-year average of 6.1 million acres, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. In Utah, nearly 100 property owners filed a lawsuit Tuesday in state district court blaming a utility for one of the state’s largest wildfires this year. The lawsuit against Rocky Mountain Power alleges arcing between power transmission lines sparked the 75-square-mile Wood Hollow Fire, which destroyed 52 cabins or houses in central Utah and left one man dead in June. “Like” us on Facebook

Bipolar disorder quite treatable Dear Dr. Donohue: My grandson, who is 26 years old, has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He evidently has had this for some time, which would explain his mood swings and erratic behavior. He is now getting medication and therapy, which are helpful. Please tell us something about this disease and what the future outlook is for him. — R.F. Answer: People with bipolar disorder do display mood swings, from the pole of depression to the pole of exhilaration. Bipolar disorder used to be called “manic-depressive disorder.” When people with this disorder are in the exhilarated state, they have inexhaustible energy and a diminished need for sleep. They appear to be able to go on and on forever. They are talkative and feel invincible. Impulsivity, along with a tendency to make quick decisions that ultimately prove unwise, is also part of the spectrum. The other pole, the depressive pole, is the exact opposite. In this phase, people are down in the dumps and have no energy. They can barely drag themselves

Dr. Paul Donohue To Your Good Health to work, and sometimes they cannot even do that because they feel so empty and so drained. They sleep much of the time, or they cannot get to sleep or waken in the early morning hours and stay awake. Thoughts of suicide intrude into their consciousness. All this most likely is due to an imbalance of brain chemicals, chemicals with names like dopamine and serotonin. Bipolar disorder is quite common. It affects 2 percent or more of the American population. Two percent of a population greater than 300 million amounts to a huge number of people laid low by this illness. Bipolar is quite treatable. The outlook for your grandson is good. He is in therapy and on mood-stabilizing medicines. By sticking to both, his moods should not be constantly swinging be-

tween the two poles. He has good prospects for enjoying a long, healthy, happy and productive life. Dear Dr. Donohue: I need information about Ewing’s sarcoma. My 13-year-old niece has it. Doctors did a lot of testing on her. I need to know more about it. — W.E. Answer: Ewing’s sarcoma is a family of tumors that spring up from bones and soft tissues. They are most often seen in young people between the ages of 10 and 20. Arm bones, pelvic bones, ribs and spine are the places where this tumor usually arises, but the leg bones, especially the femur, are the No. 1 site for it. Signs and symptoms depend on where the tumor arises and how large it is. Pain, swelling and tenderness, along with weight loss and fever, are typical signs. In the past 30 years, changes in the way Ewing’s is treated have greatly increased the chances of a good outcome. A team of doctors takes care of Ewing’s patients, and the team includes a surgeon, an oncologist (a cancer

Wednesday, September 12, 2012


specialist) and a radiation oncologist (a doctor whose specialty is treatment with radiation). When the tumor is discovered early, a favorable result can be expected in 75 percent of cases. Dear Dr. Donohue: I am 83 and have macular degeneration. Will I endanger my eyesight by taking Viagra, Cialis or Levitra? My wife thinks this is too dangerous. — E.B. Answer: These medicines for erectile dysfunction are not taboo for men with macular degeneration. Men who take medicines containing nitrates ought not to use them. A few users have noticed transiently blurred vision or have experienced a short-lived blue haze after use. Neither is permanent. NAION, nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy, is a partial or complete vision loss, most often in one eye, that has been suggested as a possible but very rare side effect of these medicines. A cause-and-effect relation has not been established. Your doctor will explain all of this when he or she writes a prescription for one of these drugs.

Explaining an unwed mother to a child Dear Carolyn: We have a wonderful 26-year-old cousin who just announced she is pregnant. My wife and I are very happy and have expressed our joy and support in multiple ways. The father is 40. They have been dating for about six months but have not announced whether they are going to get married. She will definitely be a great mom. The dad may be great, too — our family does not know him well yet. Our challenge is how we handle this with our 10-year-old daughter. We have been and will continue to be fully supportive of our cousin; however, we also would like to impress upon our daughter that we hope that a man and a woman fall in love and then decide to get married, and, through their continued love for each other, they may have a baby. How can we communicate our values to our daughter in a manner that in no way adversely impacts her views of her cousin? — Father Is Perplexed Answer: You’re less perplexed than you think. In choosing to support your cousin despite a belief that a love-marriage-baby formula makes sense, you have already made the exact calculation that you want to convey to your daughter. So, you just need to figure out why you’re express-


Some people raise oops babies beautifully, while plenty who 1. fall in love, 2. mar-

ing joy and supporting your cousin, instead of scolding, fretting over or shunning her. Judging from your comments, you’re not saying, “X behavior is bad . . . unless someone close to us does it, in which case it’s okay.” That’s a good philosophy not to have, because not only does it lack integrity, but it also wouldn’t pass a clever 10-year-old’s eye-roll test. I suspect your belief instead is that doing right by children is ultimately more important than following a societally sanctioned path to starting a family — and since you trust your cousin to be a good parent, you feel genuine joy at her news. If that’s your belief, then you have this to support it:

ry, then 3. have children in perfect sequence make perfectly awful parents.

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.

Topeka Zoo earns accreditation

Register/ Allison Tinn

Library offers assistance By ALLISON TINN

Who says getting older means losing the ability to read a book, browse the Internet or scan the newspaper? Where there’s a will there’s a way. Tuesday, the Iola Public Library held a stop-and-go workshop for those interested in learning how to use devices designed to assist the visually and hearing impaired. Beckye Parker, special needs and talking book consultant with the Southeast Kansas Library Systems, was there to bring some of the latest technology to the older generation in the area. “If you can’t hold or read a book then talking books is the next step,� Parker said. Talking books is an audio tool that not only read books out loud but whose tone and speed of reading can be altered so a person can better hear and understand the book. Another device gaining popularity is the Monomouse, a device that looks

like a computer mouse but when placed over a newspaper, book or magazine it magnifies the words and projects images onto a television screen. “A lot of the older generation doesn’t want to use a computer so they get this because it shows up on the television,� Parker said. For people who want to get on the Internet or computer there is a device, iZoom, that will magnify the screen up to 56 times larger, Parker said. The iZoom can change the color of the background for the visually impaired and has an automated device that can read websites and tell a person what they are changing on the screen. Nooks, iZooms and a Monomouse can be checked out “like a person would check out a book for two weeks,� Lesa Cole, public services librarian said. “If we don’t have it here, we can call the Southeast Kansas Library System and get it for them to try out before they purchase the devices.�

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The once-troubled Topeka Zoo has earned its national accreditation for the next five years. City manager Jim Colson told the city council Tuesday that the zoo was accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. The city in 2009 asked the commission to investigate the zoo after several animal deaths and the zoo’s failure to comply with federal rules. The

commission considered revoking the zoo’s accreditation in 2010 but delayed the decision. Inspectors examined the zoo’s operations again in January 2011, leading to the decision to restore the zoo’s full accreditation. The Topeka CapitalJournal reports AZA accreditation will allow the zoo to loan and borrow animals from other accredited zoos, and to participate in breeding programs with them.

LaHarpe VFW Auxiliary meets LAHARPE — The Ladies Auxiliary of LaHarpe Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 6324 met Monday at the post home. Nine members and two guests attended. Barbara Sherwood gave a report on the auxiliary’s coupon project. Members have cut and sorted about 60,000 coupons. They were taken to the National Guard armory in Iola and Fort Riley for military servicemen to use overseas. Other fundraisers discussed were a battle of the bands and a chicken noodle dinner. Pat Spencer plans to take items to the Veterans Affairs hospital in Topeka Oct. 19. Voter registration plans were discussed, as was a planned flag disposal ceremony with the assistance of local Boy Scouts. Guests Joy Atterbury and Diane Crawley went through the auxiliary’s financial audit.

The auxiliary’s next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 8 at the VFW post home.
