FARM BILL AGRICULTURE SAFETY NET Insurance expansion proposed By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

Few have kept as keen an eye on agriculture through their lives as Darrell Monfort. His interest has been whetted by growing up on the family farm, two miles northwest of Iola, and tending to untold numbers of farm animals since earning a degree in veterinary medicine from Kansas State University in 1976. As Allen County Farm Bureau’s policy chairman, he has watched closely as congressmen have wrestled to fashion a new farm bill. Monfort, 59, has some thoughts about what would be good for farmers and all in the nation. Times have changed, he said, to the point that price support is a dinosaur. Financial advantage for those who raise enough to feed the nation’s 320 million and many others around the world is likely to be more of a safety net to deal with disastrous conditions, such as the drought that has gripped the mid section of the country this year.

lifesaver the last two years. Some farmers wouldn’t be in business today if it weren’t for crop insurance.” Dreher agrees that expansion to things other than core farm crops — corn, soybeans and wheat locally — “would be great.”

Darrell Monfort

That’s found in crop insurance, around for years and subsidized by the federal government. Monfort expects a new version to be more comprehensive. If he were to have a say, cattlemen and those who grow fruits and vegetables also would be targeted. Stanley Dreher, who has been on both sides of the issue as a farmer and state representative, albeit a farm bill is federal legislation, agrees. “We need to expand crop insurance,” he said. “It has been a

“WE HAVE unprecedented prices today,” Monfort said. Corn prices in the $8-a-bushel range and soybeans selling for twice that much or more, have precluded the need for price support, he opined, although “if you don’t have a crop the price doesn’t mean anything.” That is where insurance enters the mix, along with disaster relief measures. Monfort thinks all-encompassing aspects of federal participation in the nation’s single largest industry is particularly important because of what shakes out at harvest — for any commodity — and when it’s time to send livestock to See INSURANCE | Page A7

Smokers KanQuit By ALLISON TINN allison@iolaregister.com

Most people are aware that smoking causes major health risks. What some don’t always realize is once a person is hooked on nicotine it can be one of the most difficult accomplishments to kick the habit. There are many avenues smokers may take to try to quit smoking; one is to join the Kansas Tobacco Quitline (KanQuit). The program is free and gives people one-on-one email, live chat or phone sessions with a certified cessation counselor. Monday at 11:30 a.m., Matthew

What’s in the farm bill? • price supports and/or crop insurance for commodity crops • conservation programs that affect land, water and soil use • agricultural exports and food aid, including humanitarian assistance to other nations • food assistance programs for poor Americans • direct and guaranteed loans to farmers and ranchers • forestry programs managed by the U.S. Forest Service • programs promoting renewable fuels such as ethanol • crop insurance and disaster assistance

ROYALTY

Schrock, cessation coordinator for Kansas Department of Health and Environment, will be in the basement of the Allen County Hospital to present information about how KanQuit can help smokers who want to quit. This will be the third year a representative has come to Allen County. Damaris Kunkler, Thrive Allen County program director, said the presentation is open to the public, and the hope is to have representatives from health care offices around the county come to the meeting so doctors may refer patients to the KanQuit program.

Meltdown challenges men By ALLISON TINN allison@iolaregister.com

Calling all men. Monday at 6 p.m. Thrive Allen County will have its “all terrain ego challenge” at Gene and Theresa Weatherbie’s property, also where the annual hay maze is each year. As part of the Allen County Meltdown program, an eightweek countywide program designed to focus on healthy living, Thrive is offering a fun interac-

tive way for men to join the program. Women are invited as well. “The course will be 18 stations. We created activities from the natural elements,” Thrive’s Damaris Kunkler said. Some of the activities will be lumberjack curls, stand-up pushups, milk jug race, hedge apple hail mary passes and log stacks. Men don’t need to worry about missing the Monday night football games because it begins at See MELT | Page A5

Allen County Hospital recognized Allen County Hospital was recognized this week for its accountability with health care practices and how it cares for pneumonia sufferers. The Joint Commission, the nation’s leading accreditor of health care organizations, announced Wednesday ACH was “one of the nation’s top performing hospitals on key quality measures.” Specifically, ACH was cited for “using evidence-based clinical processes ... shown to improve care for pneumonia,” according to a press release from HCA Health Midwest Systems, which manages the hospital. Additionally, ACH was one of 620 hospitals across the country to earn the distinction of “Top Performer on Key Quality Measures,” which looks at informa-

tion on health care practices. Less than 20 percent of the accredited hospitals reporting data to the Joint Commission earned the distinction. The study ensures proper health care measures are being taken, particularly in terms of accountability. Cris Rivera credited physicians and health care professionals on staff at ACH. “The cohesive team at Allen County Hospital collaborates to deliver not only excellent and compassionate patient care, but also the best possible outcomes and support for patients during their treatment,” Rivera said. “When we raise the bar and provide the proper guidance and tools, hospitals have responded with excellent results,” said Mark R. Chassin, Joint Commission president. “This capacity for continual improveVol. 114, No. 230

ment points toward a future in which quality and safety defects are dramatically reduced and high reliability is sought and achieved with regularity. Such day-to-day progress will slowly but surely transform today’s health care system into one that achieves unprecedented performance outcomes for the benefit of the patients.” HCA Midwest had five hospitals in the Kansas City area recognized by the Joint Commission, including ACH. All will be included in the Joint Commission’s “Improving America’s Hospitals” annual report, as well as the commission’s Quality Check website, qualitycheck.org. “Excellent health care is what all patients expect and deserve,” HCA Midwest Health System President Mel Legarde said.

20th Keaton festival looks back By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

For the past 19 years, locals have celebrated pretty much all that’s known about silent comic genius and Piqua native Buster Keaton, as well as other film and stage stars from his era. Starting Friday, the 20th annual Keaton celebration will take a special look, again at Keaton’s life in popular culture, as well as those who have helped organize the annual festival. “The Timeless Comedy of Buster Keaton” will fill the Bowlus Fine Arts Center with a series of workshops, group discussions — and of course Keaton movies to cap both nights of the two-day celebration. A number of special guests who have appeared in years past will return to Iola for the 20th annual festival, including James Karen, long-time Keaton friend

Doves get Labor chief says governor fired her home safely By JOHN HANNA Associated Press

Tuesday morning a flock of 10 doves took flight from Iola’s Highland Cemetery to Topeka — they made it safely. The doves were released as part of Lena Conger’s funeral ceremony. Son Ken Slife and his daughter Barbie Weber took a trip to Topeka where they collected the doves from Bob Everson. Everson trained the doves to fly up to 600 miles. The trip from Iola to Topeka took the doves three hour. When Weber and her father took the cages back to Everson they were happy to see that the birds made it home safely. It was reported in Tuesday’s Register that Ken Slife was the brother of the recently deceased, Lena Conger, and that Barbie Weber was the niece. Slife is in fact the son of Conger and Weber a granddaughter.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback abruptly replaced his labor secretary Thursday, a week after his administration touted her efforts to streamline her department and had her touring the state with other high-ranking officials to promote his economic policies. Former Secretary Karen Brownlee said the Republican governor removed her from the top job at the Department of Labor and she suggested they disagreed over how well the agency was running. She has touted her efforts to cut administrative costs and staff — saying they haven’t hurt servic-

es — but Democrats and union organizations have seen her as anti-labor. Brownback’s office announced Brownlee’s departure in a short statement without giving a reason and said Rep. Lana Gordon of Topeka would serve as interim secretary. The statement did not thank Brownlee for her service or highlight accomplishments, something common when even controversial appointees leave voluntarily. Brownlee told The Associated Press her departure wasn’t voluntary and that she didn’t sign a resignation letter. She said Caleb Stegall, the governor’s chief counsel, told her she was expected to

step down. “I think the governor and I measure performance in different ways,” Brownlee said. “It’s hard to understand.” Brownback spokeswoman Sherriene JonesSontag declined to discuss the reasons for Brownlee’s departure, adding, “It’s a personnel matter.” The Department of Labor’s most visible jobs are determining when out-of-work Kansans are eligible for unemployment benefits, distributing those benefits to them and ensuring that they are actively seeking new jobs. The agency also releases monthly reports on unemployment and the state’s labor market, and settles disputes between

injured workers and employers over medical care and other benefits. Brownback and Brownlee are both conservative Republicans, and she had served in his administration since he became governor in January 2011. Even last week, the administration issued a statement praising Brownlee’s management of her department and quoting her as saying that agencies could improve

services without more money. The statement highlighted a seven-city tour with Brownback’s secretaries of revenue and commerce, in part to counter criticism of massive income tax cuts enacted this year. Brownback and other supporters believe the cuts will stimulate the economy, but critics believe they’ll produce big budget shortfalls.

Incoming eastbound traffic to Iola on U.S. 54 was limited to one lane for more than an hour Friday morning after the end of a trailer tandem tipped over while it was being pulled by a highway transport. The driver told authorities he was turning onto U.S. 54 from the U.S. 169 off ramp when the load apparently shifted in the trailer, causing it to tip. The driver, whose name was not released, was not injured.

Opinion

Under-educated men and women are dying earlier American men and women who dropped out before graduating from high school are losing years of life expectancy, researchers have discovered. They don’t know why. Those with a college degree or more are living longer. The population as a whole keeps gaining a year or two of life. But the under-educated are dying earlier. The sharpest drop was found in white women. They seemed to have lost five years of life between 1990 and 2008 — a relatively short period and a shocking step backward in life expectancy. The research into causes has yet to be done, so public health experts are guessing. Women without a high school diploma tend to smoke more. They are more likely to be overweight. Because their group tends to be poorer than the general population, they are less likely to have health insurance. Comparative genetic studies have not been made. A deeper look into the studies shows that the comparison between white women without a high school diploma and those with a college degree or more is even more dramatic: 73.5 years of life in comparison to 83.9 years. White men who dropped out have a life expectancy of 67.5 years in comparison to 80.4 years for a man with a college degree or better. In comparisons with other nations, U.S. women fell to 41st place in the United Nations rankings, down from 14th place in 1985. Among developed countries, American women sank from the middle of the pack in 1970 to last place

in 2010, according to the Human Mortality Database. Studies at Harvard, the University of Colorado, the American Cancer Society, the MacArthur Foundation and other institutions produced similar facts. IT IS EASY to see why the U.S. suffers in comparison with other developed countries in life expectancy. The United States is the only rich country in the world without a universal health care system. Poor men and women without health insurance in the U.S. are also without adequate health care. But there is more to these tragic numbers than that. Perhaps the greatest failure of our political and social structure is that it has produced a large underclass. There are far too many Americans without adequate housing; without an education; without decent clothing or a healthy diet; without a full time job; without prospects for a good life. When sociologists and public health experts complete their studies and learn why the under-educated are losing years of life, they will doubtless discover that part of the answer is because they have lived in America’s gutters, so to speak, and had to struggle to keep body and soul together. The effort to merely exist takes a fearful toll on these forgotten Americans who are largely invisible to most of us. This is one of the ways that the United States of America is exceptional. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

District keeps eye on goals as plans take shape The famous motivational author, Dr. Steven Covey, often preached that “everyone should begin with the end in mind.” His quote relates well our message to the public regarding our strategic planning for our one-, five- and 10year goals for USD 257. During the most recent school board meeting, we unveiled a number of short- and long-term goals to the public. Although much more planning is needed before plans are put in place, the vision statements give students, staff, parents and community members a look at USD 257’s direction. The vision plans consist of themes regarding concepts for maximizing our facilities, personnel, curriculum, instructional capabilities, early childhood education programs, alternative education plans and professional development opportunities for the next 10 years. Although the plan is only in its first draft, the district has been proactive in identifying positive aspects of USD 257 and areas where we can improve. We also evaluated how others such as the Kansas State Department of Education, Kansas Association of School Boards, community members and the state government see our district. We also want to learn of programs the district wishes to pursue. Our Sept. 10 meeting was at the old LaHarpe Elementary School building, where board members revisited the issues that led to its closure in May 2009. We discussed how we might learn from the experience and move forward as a district. We also created an online survey and notified parents regarding ways that we could improve communication through our web-

Brian Pekarek USD 257 Superintendent of Schools site, Facebook, emails and phone calls to all parents. Survey results will be updated frequently to the school board. In October the focus shifts to developing specific action plans for accountability and priorities within each theme. The district’s staff appreciation committee will be proactive to improve communication, morale and relations with staff, students, parents and the community. Finally, the USD 257 facilities planning committee continues to look at options for the possibility of building new school buildings. Although strategic planning takes time to develop and build consensus, it is worthy of our energy. Not only does this allow us to “begin with the end in mind,” but it reminds us that developing our students is worth the effort. Doctor Covey would be extremely pleased.

Getting away to get it all together We talked business during the 11-hour drive to Colorado. Me, newspaper. Brian, medicine. While he drove, I knitted. By Hays, I had to rip out eight inches. Not a good start. One of my goals this week was to quit taking an anti-depressant I began a year after my mother’s death three years ago. Slow response? Despite several attempts, my heart outpaced rationality. I’ve hated the dependency. For only the second time in my life I’ve come out to our firetrap of a cabin, alone. (Brian doesn’t count.) The first time was 34 years ago for a honeymoon. Other than that, the cabin has served as a family meeting place. Yes, it’s been selfish. One of the big disadvantages of our mountain retreat is it now receives Internet and phone services. I can’t imagine where a satellite receiver is positioned. A star? So Monday morning Brian participated in a two-hour phone conference. The rest of the week his phone was on mute and he’s never looked at it again. I caught myself reading headlines on my phone until one delicious afternoon we went into the Estes Park Public Library so Brian, yes, could email a report,

Susan Lynn

while I sat in a big comfy chair reading the New York Times. For the better part of an hour I read section after section of the voluminous paper, catching up, of all things, on the new fashions for spring. Which brings me to my legs. In early June I had a melanoma removed from the back of my right calf, resulting in a two-inch circle of skin being carved out. All summer I wore long pants hiding the hideous thing, mad at myself for thinking I was somehow immune to skin cancer. Today, the scar is a bright pink circle with a line going across the center. Kind of like a do not enter sign. To make me feel good, Brian said it looks like a peace sign tattoo gone awry. Our first day hiking, two young women zipped past us, running the steep trail. I envied their perfect legs, strong with nary a freckle. What got me out of my frump

was reading Nora Ephron’s “I Feel Bad About My Neck.” Ephron was in her mid-60s when she wrote the light-hearted book about the ravages of aging. Turtlenecks and hair dye are the most effective ways to camouflage advancing years. Otherwise, get over yourself. I still dab concealer on my peace sign. I’m way too old for a tattoo. THE BULK of our week we’ve never strayed more than a few rooms apart. We’ve walked or ran every day. We’ve each read two books. Oohed and awed over the golden aspen. Marveled at waking up to a snow-covered front range only to see it erased by an afternoon rain. Laughed at the high-pitch wailing of the elk down in the meadow. Perhaps it is because of this vacation, coupled with time gone by, that I think I’ll be able to handle the full brunt of life without the medication. I think it was by Wednesday that I’d stopped thinking of the newspaper as a job, but rather as an opportunity. With each passing day, I’d find myself wanting to share these thoughts with you. So I’ve come full circle. For the drive home today I’ll get my knitting out. The test will be if it results in a recognizable shape.

First squirrel was mighty tasty Coal Creek reprise: Last week we took a mind’s eye trip to where as a youngster I fished, explored and drank from a spring, trickling from a layer of shale, which no doubt violated by several octaves today’s standards of hygiene. When I was 9, Dad agreed I was old enough to have a 410 shotgun and go along to hunt squirrels. Early one morning we drove to Coal Creek and Dad stationed me a few feet from a mulberry tree, with a gnarly mass laden with fruit of varying ripeness. Stay still and don’t make any sound, he instructed. Eager to become a successful hunter, I obeyed explicitly. Before long I noticed in the corner of my eye small limbs and leaves rustling in a nearby tree. A squirrel, eager for nourishment, was bound for the mulberry tree. My little heart started pounding, beads of perspiration broke out on my brow — I don’t know if it was from heat and humidity or

At Week’s End

excitement — and soon the squirrel was munching on mulberries, with controlled urgency. Be patient, Dad had said. When you decide to fire, move the brand spanking new H&R single shot slowly to your shoulder. I did as told, and with the squirrel in my sights I squeezed the trigger. Nothing happened. The squirrel kept eating and I was momentarily puzzled by why the gun didn’t fire. Then, it came to me. I hadn’t pulled back the hammer. I went through another series of preparation, this time with hammer engaged, and enough No. 6 pellets struck the squirrel

to send it to that big nut grove in the sky. At home I learned how to clean a squirrel, cutting under its tail and making slits along each side. I put one foot on the tail, gave it a jerk by its hind legs and quickly removed most of its skin. The rest was academic, including discarding all of its innards, except the liver. Squirrel livers, as well as those we took from muskrats in the winter, were excellent bait for channel cat. Mom finished the fine cleaning and that night the squirrel took center stage on our kitchen table, where we ate three sit-down meals a day. She fried the squirrel, including my favorite then, its brains, and made gravy from tatters in the big iron skillet. Biscuits were obligatory, along with mashed potatoes and some green vegetable, probably peas. It’s been more than 60 years since that first-squirrel event, but it remains clearly etched in my mind.

they are in town and will be right to my house within minutes. I know because they picked me up when I fell and broke by ankle and were right by my side in a matter of minutes. We also need to keep a full-time fire department. Iola is a large enough town that we can NOT have just a volunteer one. When the Iola Fire Department firemen was the only ones in

town who drove the ambulances we did not have to have several buildings to keep all the vehicles, etc. that the county now has. I am sure that all that upkeep is quite expensive. Thank you for letting me say what I think. Everyone has a right to their thoughts, too. Lavon R. Johnson, Iola, Kan.

Letter to the editor To the editor:

Each time I see the Allen County commissioners want to remove the Iola ambulances from the Iola Fire Department it gets me very upset. I am a widow of a fireman who spent 18 years of his life as a fireman and EMT, which they were called then. I do NOT think that someone from Humboldt or another

town should be trying to take it away from the Iola Fire Department. You have your own ambulance right in Humboldt. I know the county has its in Iola, too. However, they make runs to Wichita, Topeka, and wherever a patient needs to go to a larger hospital. The Iola Fire Department does NOT take its ambulances out of town. I feel much safer knowing

Farm bill stalled in Congress a political hot potato rado and Illinois. Farm policy has traditionally been one of the more bipartisan issues on Capitol Hill. It still is, to an extent — the Senate in June passed a five-year farm bill with almost two-thirds of the chamber supporting it. A separate version passed the House Agriculture Committee in July with Republican and Democratic support. Calling it a farm bill is something of a misnomer. Food stamps make up roughly 80 percent of the costs in both versions. The House would cut them 2 percent, angering many Democrats who don’t want them cut at all and Republicans who say they should be cut more. The Senate version would cut them by one-half of 1 percent. Since 2008, the food stamp program has more than doubled in cost, to $80 billion a year, driven by high, sustained unemployment, rising food prices and expanded eligibility under President Barack Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus law. Food stamps now help feed roughly 46 million Americans, or 1 in 7.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Farm-state members of Congress have campaigned for decades on the back of farm bills delivering election-season subsidies and other goodies to rural voters. Not this year. The bill is stalled, primarily because House GOP leaders don’t want a noisy fight over food stamps this close to the election. That poses a particular problem for some Republicans in tight races for the Senate or the House who will go home empty-handed when Congress adjourns this week. Democrats are gloating. Democratic challengers are using the farm bill as an example of how they say the Republican-run House is ineffective. Current farm law, which extends subsidy payments to farmers and pays for food stamps, is scheduled to expire Sept. 30, with no new law in place for the first time in recent memory. Failure to get a farm bill is affecting a Senate race in Montana and House races in Iowa, South Dakota, Colo-

It is unclear how angry rural voters will be about the lack of a farm bill. The farm economy has been strong in recent years, and expiration won’t mean an immediate loss of benefits for most farmers. But farmstate members argue that the certainty of federal policy is necessary for farmers making their annual business plans this fall and approaching bankers for loans. Punting the bill may also mean less money overall. While both chambers’ versions of the bill would save tens of billions of dollars from current spending, the agriculture committees may be asked to save even more as budgets tighten further next year. “They are concerned there will be fewer resources if we do it next year, so they worry it will hurt their crop insurance,” Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said of farmers in his state, where he and Rep. Tom Latham both face serious challenges from Democrats. King and Berg — along with Republican House colleagues Denny Rehberg of

Montana, Kristi Noem of South Dakota and others — have made repeated appeals to Speaker John Boehner of Ohio and other GOP leaders to bring the Agriculture Committee’s bill to the floor before Congress adjourns this week. “The farm bill is far too important for too many Montanans to let electionyear politics get in the way of doing the right thing,” said Rehberg, who is in a competitive Senate race. Noem, who is defending her House seat against Democrat Matt Varilek, said party leaders are hesitant to bring up a vote on a bill that they think might fail. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, RKan., said the legislation has turned into “a food stamp bill” that has bogged down because of both the presidential and congressional campaigns. “There’s not 218 votes to pass it,” Huelskamp told reporters. “It’s going to be very tough to do that, even in a lame-duck session.” Some House Democrats also are scrambling for cover. Rep. Bruce Braley, DIowa, who faces a challenge

This year, when drought burned meadows the same as everything else, the U.S. Department of Agriculture released CRP grassland for haying, but Monfort’s grass didn’t become eligible until heat and dry weather had taken a toll. “I think we need a better release program” for CRP acres to combat drought conditions, he said. Farm bills — they became a component of national policy more than 60 years ago — include provisions for food aid through humanitarian assistance to other nations, as well as food assistant programs for poor Americans, and help ensure children attending public schools have nourishing meals. “About 80 percent of the (expiring) farm bill dealt with the needy (through food stamps in the U.S.) and schools,” Monfort said. Although he has a heart for the unfortunate and the young, Monfort thinks “we also have to take a look at the

costs, but we do need to get the commodities out there.” Support for ethanol production gets mixed reviews in the countryside. Those who raise corn are eager for more lucrative markets, but whatever role ethanol has played in driving up the price of corn is disadvantage for those who feed livestock — with some reservations. Distiller’s grain, the byproduct of ethanol, has become a staple in feeding cattle. “The high price of corn, coupled with lower quality from drought and heat, has closed some ethanol plants,” Monfort noted.

“ They are concerned there will be fewer re-

sources if we do it next year, so they worry it will hurt their crop insurance. — Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa

from 2010 opponent Ben Lange, last week introduced a discharge petition to place the bill on the floor calendar over House leaders’ objections. Though Berg, Noem, Rehberg and a handful of other Republicans signed it, a majority of the House is needed — unlikely when Republicans hold 240 seats to Democrats’ 190 and after conservative groups came out against the bill as too expensive. “I am frustrated that it’s not progressing,” Berg said of the bill. “The unfortunate thing is that I am seeing it become political, which it really hasn’t been for the last year and a half.” Heidi Heitkamp is up with radio ads in North Dakota criticizing Berg for “toeing the party line” on farm programs and endorsing some

agriculture cuts. In the ad, targeted at farmers who listen to the radio while out in the fields, she reminds voters that agriculture is a $6 billion industry in the state. Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, who is facing the challenge from Rehberg and is himself a farmer, calls the House’s failure to take up the farm bill “total craziness.” The House in July passed a bill that would help livestock producers who are losing money because of a widespread drought, but the Senate has declined to take that up, with Senate Agriculture Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow saying that similar benefits are included in the larger bill. Republicans Rehberg and Berg have countered Democratic attacks by saying the Senate should consider that legislation.

H Insurance including breeding stock, have passed through area livestock auctions ahead of recent showers, which did little more than green grass and raise spirits. Many stockwater ponds remain low or are dry. When winter weather turns harsh, a fear is cattle will bog themselves down in muddy margins of ponds while trying to reach water and die. An aside that worries Monfort is with cattle numbers so low, “it will take a while — probably years — to rebuild the national herd.”

market depends on forces a farmer can’t control. Pure and simple, farmers are at the mercy of the weather. “Cattlemen got hammered two ways this year,” Monfort observed. “Grain prices were forced up by the drought,” which increased finishing costs in feedlots, “and the drought dried up pasture grass and ponds and cut into hay production.” Fewer cattle are on hoof today than in years and the numbers are likely to diminish even more if the dry spell continues into fall and winter, an outcome that weather experts say is likely. That encourages need for some sort of insurance plan for livestock. “A lot of farmers aren’t going to haul water all winter,” Monfort predicted, and will opt to sell off herds rather than battle the elements and high-priced forage. A large number of cattle,

CONSERVATION practices are a component of the farm bill and are dear to Monfort. Much of his acreage has been turned to wetlands or put in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Farmers are paid to keep land out of production if it is highly erodible — CRP’s function — or is set aside to the advantage of wildlife.

The flashpoint is Sept. 30, when the current farm bill ends.

“If we don’t have a new one, we’ll go to back to 1949 and while I don’t know for sure what that would mean, I don’t think it would be too pertinent to today,” Monfort said. The importance of a stable agricultural economy isn’t lost on the Allen Counties of the nation, he said. “Not taking anything away from Gates or any of our oth-

er industries, agriculture is the biggest industry we have here,” Monfort stated. “The dollars coming from agriculture far exceeds anything else. It’s important to Iola and Allen County. “We have three implement dealers in Iola, more than a lot of cities several times our size,” he continued. “They cover many counties and people come here” to visit the dealerships and “then spend money on food and fuel and shop in our stores. “There are 23 million jobs in the U.S.” directly attributable to agriculture, with return to farmers less of a percentage of many casual observers might think. “The last figure I saw was that 16 cents from each dollar of food sales goes to the American farmer,” who is more efficient than any others in the world, he said. “We have the lowest percentage at 12 to 14 percent of disposable income going for food, much less than anywhere else in the world.”

Mustangs upend Buffalos in Pioneer play By JOCELYN SHEETS jocelyn@iolaregister.com

Once Iola High’s Mustangs cleared away the homecoming cobwebs, they produced a strong second half Friday night. The Mustangs posted a 27-16 victory over the visiting Prairie View High Buffalos in a Pioneer League clash. Iola improved to 2-0 in Pioneer action while Prairie View dropped to 2-1 in league play. Trailing 8-7 at halftime on homecoming night, the Mustang seniors had the floor in the locker room. “We let them take it at halftime. It’s their homecoming. Their senior year,” said Doug Kerr, Mustang head coach. “The players responded and we had a great team win.” Mason Coons, senior quarterback, finished off two Iola drives with touchdown runs in the second half. Eric Heffern, senior linebacker, had one of three quarterback sacks. “We just had to realize it was homecoming and everything was on the line for us seniors,” Coons said of the halftime talk. “We had to start playing as a team. No one’s head was in the game in the first half. “The second half was one of the best team halves we’ve had all season.” The Mustangs took the opening drive of the second half on a 69-yard march. It was 12 plays, finished off by a 13-yard run to the end zone by Coons. The extrapoint kick was blocked but Iola led 13-8. Prairie View was powered by sophomore running back Blake Barnes. Barnes accounted for 128 of the Buffalos’ 142 yards of total offense. Barnes had back-to-back runs that pushed his team down the field on the ensuing possession. On a fourth-and-goal play at the Iola two-yard line, quarterback Shey Spears pushed over the goal line for the Buffalos. He flipped a two-point pass to a teammate, put-

almost 4 minutes, 30 seconds. Iola had 12 plays on the march of 76 yards. Coons found senior Jacob Harrison for a 17-yard pass play on the final snap of the third quarter. A 15-yard face mask penalty against the Buffalos moved the Mustangs further down the field. John Whitworth, Coons and

Kaden Macha had runs to keep the ball moving closer to the Prairie View goal line. Coons made a six-yard run to paydirt with 9:06 left in the game. Isaias Macias kicked the extra point. “We had a sloppy first. The emotions of homecoming got to us and we didn’t play very well,”

Kerr said. “The second half we came out with a lot more intensity. I was proud of the seniors for taking over. “A great effort all the way around — offensively and defensively in the second half. They got loose once in the second half but we shut the down. They’re a good football team and our kids responded well.” Iola had 347 yards of total offense in a balanced attack — 175 rushing and 172 passing. See MUSTANGS | B 2

Cubs power past Indians By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

HUMBOLDT — Humboldt High knew Oswego’s defensive front was going to prove a tough foe to conquer Friday night. So the Cubs went to the air — a lot. Behind Nathan Whitcomb’s 388 passing yards and five touchdowns — “If that’s not a school record, it’s close,” an assistant coach said — Humboldt flew away with a 50-6 win over Oswego. The victory lifts the Cubs to 3-1 on the season. “Tonight marked the first time we put together four good quarters of football together, offensively and defensively,” assistant coach Mike Miller said. The passing game relied on a teamwork approach, Miller explained. The offensive line put up a See CUBS |B2

Fillies lose non-league matches By JOCELYN SHEETS jocelyn@iolaregister.com

PITTSBURG — Pink was the color of the night but things were not in the pink for Iola High’s Fillies on the volleyball court. The Fillies faced two familiar foes but in non-league action Thursday at Pittsburg High School.

Independence. Pittsburg decked the Fillies 25-7, 25-7 then beat the Lady Bulldogs 25-13, 25-15. “We had a rough day,” said Emily Sigg, IHS head coach. “Even with two losses, I’m still proud of the girls because I think we learned what we do well and what we need improvement on. “As long as we are learning and getting better every week, we will have no choice but to become a better team.” Against Independence, the Fillies got five kills from Emery Driskel and four kills from Katie Thompson. Addie Haar and Hannah Endicott each delivered three kills. Breanna Stout made one

kill. Haar had two solo blocks at the net and Kyra Moore had a solo block. Moore was credited with 10 set assists and Emma Piazza had seven assists. Thompson served three aces and Driskel had an ace serve. Emma Sigg and Driskel each had seven digs. Piazza and Moore had four digs apiece and Endicott had three digs. In the Pittsburg match, Driskel and Stout each had two kills. Endicott and Moore had one kill apiece. Driskel made one solo block at the net. See FILLIES | B3

The Mustang defense came up big with a takeaway on Prairie View’s next possession. With senior noseguard Stephen McDonald in his face, Spears threw the football and Jacob Rhoads won the battle for the pass for the Mustangs. Rhoads’ interception set up another long drive by the Mustangs. Iola moved the football on the ground and through the air but got stopped short of another touchdown. A penalty moved the Mustangs from a secondand-one at the three-yard line. It came down to a fourth-and-two and Whitworth was held to no gain. Prairie View took over possession of the football. But on the first snap, McDonald and Bryce Misenhelter stormed into the Buffalo backfield and forced a fumble. Barnes fumbled, picked the ball up and fumbled the ball again. The second time the football rolled into the end zone. Macha recovered the football for a Mustang touchdown with 2:25 remaining in the ballgame. Macias kicked the extra point for a 27-16 lead. Barnes returned the short ensuing kick to the Iola 32 yard line. A personal-foul penalty against the Mustangs moved it further down the field. Prairie View was called for holding on the next play

Senior kicker Hayden Boring got into the act midway through the third with a booming, 44-yard field goal. Whitcomb capped the scoring on the defensive side of the ball, returning an Indian interception 55 yards for a score. The Cubs registered 415 yards through the air, while limiting Oswego to 99. The Indians’ only touchdown came on the game’s opening kickoff. “After the kickoff we thought, ‘Here we go again,’” Miller said. Instead, Humboldt quickly caught fire on offense and clamped down on defense. “The guys really did a good job of flying to the ball,” Miller said.

Wildcat Kent Houk sent his starters to the bench after Marmaton Valley ran back the opening kickoff 60 yards for a touchdown.

Whitworth finished with 63 yards on 15 carries. Rhoads had 54 yards on 12 rushes for Iola. Adam Kauth caught five passes for 54 yards and rushed for 15 yards. Harrison, a senior, had three catches for 72 yards. Coons rushed for 52 yards and was 13 of 23 passing for 172 yards. “Offensively, we threw the ball the best we’ve thrown all year long. Mason did a great job finding receivers and Jacob Harrison did a phenomenal job catching the ball,” Kerr said. “A great team win. We had to work for every yard we got. They were taking away the jet plays so we had to beat them in between the tackles. We challenged the offensive line.” Kerr said the offensive line — seniors Eli Grover and Aaron Barclay, juniors Quinton Morrison and Derrick Weir, sophomore Alex Bauer — and McDonald at fullback did a great job blocking. Leading the charge defensively, Rhoads racked up six solo tackles, two assisted tackles and an interception. McDonald came up with five solo stops and three assisted tackles. Whitworth had four solo tackles and three assisted. Heffern, Misenhelter and Maxwell each had a quarterback sack. Macha had two fumble recoveries.

Austin Deer had scoring rus covering 50 and 43 yards, part of a 10-carry, 133-yard performance. Michael Beggs added 24 yards on three carries, including touchdown runs of two and 13 yards. Keagon Boyd provided a 12-yard touchdown run. West Elk struggled mightily. The Patriots wound up with a negative eight yards of total offense. The Wildcats did not attempt a pass, nor did they punt. West Elk punted six times.

Deer led Marmaton Valley with six tackles. Lane Hamm, a junior, had five stops. “It was good to give our varsity players some rest for districts next week,” Houk said. Marmaton Valley travels to Marais Des Cygnes Valley next Friday to open Kansas Eight Man I, District 2 play.

They returned to the courts and battled to an 8-4 win over Labette County’s Carr and Page. Reno and Sinclair earned their medals with a default win (8-0) against Columbus. Iola’s No. 1 singles player for the day was Katana Smith. Megan Smith played in the No 2 singles spot for the Fillies. Both went 0-4 at the meet. “I was a little disappointed in some of the matches because I believe our singles players could’ve pulled out a couple of wins,” Bycroft said. “The girls just didn’t have that last bit to finish it off.” In No. 1 singles play, Katana Smith lost 8-1 to both Fort Scott’s Courtney Crain

and Pittsburg’s Katy Short. She dropped an 8-3 decision to Paige Smith of Labette County and lost 8-2 to Ashley Simpson of Columbus. Megan Smith was beaten 8-2 by Kristian Hightower of Fort Scott in her opening No. 2 singles match. She lost 8-0 to Brittany Wilde of Pittsburg, then lost 8-1 to Labette County’s Sami Brown and 8-0 to Columbus’ Alyssa Goodwin. Bycroft said she saw some double faults and the habit of returning the ball right back to the net player during the doubles matches. “Just some things to work on,” Bycroft said. “I’d like to add that just about every time we play

somewhere there is always someone — parents, players or coaches — who comment to me and the girls how nice of a team we are. “I’m very proud of my team’s sportsmanship and good attitudes. They represent themselves and Iola well.” Iola’s next varsity competition is Tuesday at Coffeyville. The meet was moved from next Thursday to Tuesday. It will be the final regular season matches of the season. The Kansas Class 4A regional tournament is Oct. 5-6. Iola’s junior varsity tennis players wrap up their season at Chanute on Monday.

ACC women win, men lose By JOCELYN SHEETS jocelyn@iolaregister.com

They came close last week. Allen Community College’s women finally got off the snide Wednesday afternoon. Allen’s women claimed their first win of the 2012 soccer season. It came at home against Kansas City, Kan., Community College. The Red Devils won 2-1. Danielle Wilber and Amanda Larson each netted a goal for Allen. Keelie Arbuckle was in goal for the Red Devils again and made seven saves. The ACC men dropped a 2-0 decision to Kansas City. Jordan Drake was credited with eight saves as the Red Devils’ goalkeeper. Allen’s women (1-4-1, 1-6-1) have a tough task today. The Red Devils host NJCAA Division I topranked Hutchinson (7-0) at 3 o’clock. The Red Devil men (1-31, 3-3-1) and women travel to Concordia Monday to take on Cloud County Community College in a doubleheader.

BRAD KESELOWSKI VS JIMMIE JOHNSON

Oh, it’s just a mild one, but it could heat up if both drivers remain at the top of the Chase standings. Keselowski pulled up into the racing groove a bit soon for Johnson’s taste after his final pit stop in the Geico 400. Johnson shrugged it off later, saying Keselowski would have won the race anyway, but his excitable crew chief, Chad Knaus, demanded that NASCAR “look at the video” during the race. NASCAR This Week’s Monte Dutton gives his take: “Keselowski’s taming of the dominant Johnson surprised everyone. Imagine Chad Knaus, of all people, yelling ‘No fair!’ No worries for the Johnson fans. They’ll be back.”

 It seemed as if Kasey Kahne spent the whole race in third place.  The key to the Chase is intermediate tracks like Chicagoland, but the next two are at one-milers, one flat (New Hampshire) and the other banked (Dover).  Then comes the Great Unknown. Yes … Talladega.  It’s still a bit too early to dwell on, but, no, Roger Penske has never won a NASCAR Cup championship. Brad Keselowski gave him a Nationwide championship two years ago.  The difference in the points was the difference in the race. Keselowski led a lap (obviously). Johnson led the most laps. Keselowski got the three bonus points for winning. He leads Johnson by three. As Bill Clinton might say, it’s arithmetic.

TU

 Brad Keselowski had the incredible skill to beat Jimmie Johnson at his best … and the incredible sense not to rub it in. One race does not a Chase make, nor one victory a champion.  It’s important to remember that, while the field is grouped together to begin the Chase, it’s back to standard points racing once it starts. The entire field began the Geico 400 separated by 12 points. After one race, the span is now 47, which means that Jeff Gordon, in particular, has some work to do.

The Kez Takes Over

Keselowski wrestles momentum from Johnson at Joliet

By Monte Dutton

NASCAR This Week

JOLIET, Ill. — Brad Keselowski doesn’t miss a trick. Chicagoland Speedway is wholly nestled in the Central time zone. For 90 percent of Sunday’s Geico 400, it only looked like Jimmie Johnson was in a different one. Then, all of a sudden, Keselowski’s Dodge was. He didn’t just take the lead. He pulled away. By the time the checkered flag cut the turbulent air of trackside, Keselowski’s edge was over three seconds. To borrow from the words of the late Jim Croce, Keselowski pulled the mask off the old Lone Ranger, but what was most impressive was that he knew better than to tug on Superman’s cape, which would’ve been about as effective as spitting into the wind. Johnson has won five championships. He’s the favorite for a sixth. He might lose to a faster driver in a faster

car, but he’s not going to succumb to gamesmanship. Keselowski knew better than to talk smack afterward. Keselowski was appropriately respectful, which, like almost every other move he makes, was smart. It was way too early. One race does not a Chase make, nor one victory a champion. “It’s not for me to speak about a mental edge,” he said. “That’s for you guys to speculate. If you want to ask him about that, that’s fine, but it’s not for me to speculate. When you’re winning races and running up front like we did today, it means a lot to everybody. It means a lot for your own team, and it means a lot to others sometimes. I know that watching the ‘48’ (Johnson) win quite often, that does have an effect over time, a psychological advantage — but it’s not for me to speak.” Johnson’s going to bounce back with a vengeance. He always does. Keselowski might win this championship, but it doesn’t behoove him to get the beast all riled up.

Dear NASCAR This Week, Lynne Bupp, from Roxbury, Kan., wrote that she was upset about a few things. Well, I think I must look at the sport a little differently. I have been a fan since age 5, over 20 years. Maybe I look at things in a tainted way? First, being that she only attends Nationwide Races to watch the Cup boys, and they should be allowed to race for the title. Hmm, I don’t go to one single race just to see who wins the yearly championship, nor would I like to watch a finale, where my driver runs 19th, but locks up the title. I would be happy, but it’s not the same. It doesn’t matter if, during the race you go to, Tony Stewart isn’t eligible to get points for the title. I’d just like the driver to win and don’t care where he stacks up against drivers in a lower level. Also, the competition of the young guns, and underdogs, going against these Cup-affiliated teams and stars, is pretty nice. I think they enjoy it, and it highlights the series. ... I love how Nationwide is set up and find the races very entertaining. Next, she calls the Chase boring. Really? Wow! I’ve been watching for years, and I know, we’d never have another Atlanta 1992, or anything close, without the Chase. The first one in ’04 was amazing. Longtime fans may not like the Chase, but should agree it’s anything but boring. Matt Kenseth’s 2003 consistency run was the definition of boring. Win the title by finishing seventh every week. The Chase is great. It needs tweaks here and there but it’s still very young, and NASCAR isn’t scared to tweak it. It’s much better than anything we’ve had up until the ‘04 season. Finally, many people say HMS and Jimmie (Johnson) cheat. I won’t go one way or the other on this, but these guys are the best of the best for a reason. Their job is to win. And yeah, the Chase caters to Jimmie. But I bet Dale (Earnhardt) Jr. would be ecstatic to make the Chase, even if it was 10 races at Watkins Glen. Point being, they all have one goal, they get there. It’s every team’s job to win and in doing so, you must beat the best, at their best. And even if Jimmie wins his sixth, and this person stops watching, 1,000 more fans will start watching. So it doesn’t really matter. I love NASCAR, always have, and probably always will. And while, from time to time, they may make a fan unhappy, they will amaze several more in the process, and keep getting better. Kenny Ireland Grantsboro, N.C. As is often said, opposing viewpoints are invited.

JOLIET, Ill. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. doesn’t want to get ahead of himself. After all, one race does not a Chase, or a champion, make. It’s another take on the familiar “one race at a time” mindset. “We’ve been running (well) all year,” Earnhardt said. “We’ve just been going week to week. You go to each race track and work on your car in practice,  Who’s not: The run the race, try to use your head, finish as best you Chase takes NASCAR can. back to a points competition, and one “You can’t think too far ahead of yourself.

I don’t think you out of gas at the end. really alter the course, per se. You got to show up every week and run against everybody. You’ve got to try to finish and try to win the race.” The hidden key — What with two drivers — Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex Jr. — in the Chase, and two victories with Bowyer, this is the long-awaited season of Michael Waltrip’s arrival as an owner, but that’s not entirely the story. Waltrip has a partner, Rob Kauffman, whom he credits with a crucial role. “I’m half the ownership,” Waltrip said. “Luckily, Rob Kauffman is here, too. … In 2007, when we started the team, I made it all the way to March till I figured out I was broke. I met Rob in April. He bought half the team in October. State • Iola • (620) 365-5795

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.

Iola City Council members will be asked Monday to recognize the Local Firefighters Union 64 and establish a collective bargaining agreement. The union discussion will be at the request of Councilman Steve French, who brought up the collective bargaining proposal at

sentative. Currently each firefighter works under his own arrangement with the city. Also on the agenda are discussions on what to do with undeveloped property near Cedarbrook Golf Course — a private developer has requested options

to buy the land through 2013 — as well as the city’s drought policy, purchasing policy revisions, and ongoing ambulance talks with the county. The 6 p.m. meeting will be in the New Community Building at Riverside Park and is open to the public.
