CELEBRATING STONE FACE

Blaze destroys Iola home By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

A traffic stop in the early morning hours Thursday may have saved Richard Andres’ life. Andres and wife Marilyn lost their home and most of their belongings when their home at 1102 East St. burned. There were no injuries — thanks in large part because the Andreses’ nephew, Iola police officer Brandon Andres, was on duty. Officer Andres was conducting a traffic stop at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday, not far from Richard and Marilyn’s home. “He could see the smoke,” Marilyn Andres recalled. Marilyn was at work at Crossroads Motel. Richard was asleep in the couple’s bedroom. “Richard is a very sound sleeper and they couldn’t get him to answer the door when they knocked,” Marilyn said. So Brandon kicked in the door, raced inside and began yelling for his uncle to respond. “Richard has smoked probably 50 years of his life, and he coughs a lot,” Marilyn recalled. “But this See FIRE | Page A7

Schools take focus at “See, Hear Iola!”

Keaton films often debunk stereotypes By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

By ALLISON TINN allison@iolaregister.com

School was the focal point at the fifth “See, Hear Iola!” program Friday. Stacey Fager, Iola High School’s principal, was the guest speaker. Fager spoke about changes the high school has recently made. Because students tend to get hungry before their designated lunch, a 10-minute passing period at 9:27 a.m. was created where students could grab a quick breakfast to tied them over until lunch. “This was a leap of faith for our teachers and administrators,” Fager said. “Ten minutes is plenty of time for students to eat and converse, but it’s also just enough time to get into some trouble.” See PROGRAM | Page A3

Support group walks to end Alzheimer’s By ALLISON TINN allison@iolaregister.com

A cure for Alzheimer’s has yet to be found — but the Iola Alzheimer’s Support Group will be walking until one is found. The group will be holding its fifth annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s Oct. 13. The event will begin with registration at 9 a.m. at the courthouse on the square. At 9:30 a.m. will be a live auction where quilts, antlers, lamps and a meat bundle will be up for bids, according to May LaCrone founder of the Iola Alzheimer’s Support Group. At 10 a.m. will be an inspirational Promise Garden Motion See Alzheimer’s | Page A4

Dr. Vergil Noble, first presenter for the 20th annual Buster Keaton Celebration Friday morning, visits with Susan Raines, executive director of the Bowlus Fine Arts Center.

Buster born into theatrical world By BOB JOHNSON bob@iolaregister.com

Buster Keaton’s skills as an entertainer were influenced by family. His parents, Joe and Myra Keaton, were vaudevillians; his father-in-law, Frank Cutler, was a writer of one-act plays and verse, and his wife’s uncle, Burt Cutler, was a musician and composer of more than casual note. Dr. Vergil E. Noble, adjunct

professor of anthropology at the University of Nebraska, led off the 20th annual Buster Keaton Celebration, “The Timeless Comedy of Buster Keaton,” Friday morning at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. Noble traced the roots of Buster’s mother, Myra, noting the Cutlers arrived in New England in the early 1600s, including her direct ancestors at the Bay Colony 14 years after See ROOTS | Page A3

Stereotypes based in Appalachia were the topic of a presentation given Friday during the 20th annual Buster Keaton Celebration at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center. Lisa Stein Haven, an assistant professor of English at Ohio University Zanesville, gave the presentation titled “Keaton, Kith and Kin: A Revision of the Appalachian Feud Stereotype in Buster Keaton’s ‘Our Hospitality.’” Topics of discussion were based on the “hillbilly” stereotype of Appalachia and how these stereotypes were portrayed in early cinema. Haven said while growing up in Kentucky, she became interested in the family feuds of the mountains. During her presentation, Haven said many films in early cinema built up stereotypes regarding mountain families, those of which Keaton showed interest during his career. Haven showed clips from Keaton’s “Moonshine,” a 1918 comedy about a police hunt for moonshiners. Haven also presented a short, animated film titled “The Martins and the Coys” produced by Disney. After the films, Haven pointed out many stereotypes regarding Appalachians, some of which included

Lisa Stein Haven

laziness, alcoholism, anger and violence. Haven said Keaton’s film, “Our Hospitality,” helped to break some of the stereotypes of its current day. She explained the film promoted education, upper-class citizens, industrialization and resolution without violence. “The film showed that feuds can be settled without violence,” See FILM | Page A4

Bit of luck helped bring along celebration’s success By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

A discussion about the origins of Iola’s Buster Keaton Celebration proved one thing above all else: you can’t fit 10 years of memories into a paltry 50 minutes. A founders’ panel discussion, featuring five original Keaton committee organizers, highlighted Friday afternoon’s workshops as part of the 20th annual Keaton celebration. Their aim was to speak about the celebration’s genesis and add general comments about the first 10 years. The discussion was so enSee PANEL | Page A7

Treece residents say goodbye TREECE, Kan. (AP) — Former residents of a southeast Kansas mining town have said their final farewell, marking the end to a buyout that began in 2009 after the town was deemed to be unsafe because of decades of residual lead and zinc waste. In the last two years, residents have left Treece after receiving buyouts from the Environmental Protection Agency. The town has been removed from the state map after being disincorporated by the Legislature earlier this year. “I just want to congratulate everyone that had a deal in this buyout, that it went as smoothly as it did and as expediently as it did,” said Bill Blunk, the last mayor of Treece. Millions of tons of lead and zinc mining waste surround the Treece townsite, and sinkholes and uncapped mineshafts are filled with contaminated water. Treece and nearby Picher, Okla., produced much of the lead that was used for bullets for WWI and WWII. Pam Pruitt, Treece’s

last city clerk, was near tears as she discussed the loss of the town. “We were so close-knit, and that was the hardest thing in this process,” Pruitt said. “It was like not only the people were moving but it felt like your memories were going with them. That sounds crazy, but it did.” The final cost of the Treece buyout is expected to be about $3.6 million, said Bob Jurgens, chief of assessment and restoration for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Jurgens, the project manager, said the government bought out 66 families’ homes and relocated 12 renters. The government also acquired 31 vacant lots, 14 vacant houses, four city properties, two businesses and a church. Most of the town’s homes and buildings are gone. The town water tower was sold for scrap metal and even the asphalt on the streets was scraped up to be used in roads elsewhere. When the EPA cleanup

Douglas Thompson

Douglas LaVerne Thompson, 52, Iola, Kansas, passed away Thursday, Sept. 27, 2012, at Freeman Hospital in Joplin, Mo. Douglas was born Sept. 10, 1960, in Fort Scott, the son of Glenn LaVerne and Bernita June (Stine) Thompson. He grew up in Bronson until the family moved to Iola where he graduated from high Douglas school in 1977.

Students were told that if the passing period was abused then it would be taken away next year. The students have shown a good response to the extra time, and they have not had any problems, he said. In addition to getting a longer passing period, students are allowed to Stacey Fager use their cell phones during lunch and passing periods. This, too, was a leap of faith, Fager said. The idea behind the cell phone leniency was to take away from student distractions during

sent Myra to live with relatives in Nebraska. The attraction was too great. On May 31, 1894, Buster’s parents were married, with Myra described as “Joe’s water cress, his little buttercup.” A little more than a year later — Oct. 4, 1895 — Buster was born in Piqua, while the Keatons were there as part of a touring vaudeville troupe.

Rock Bluff, Neb., then a jumping off point for the West. By the early 1870s Frank was listed in a Michigan county directory as a “traveling minstrel.” Later, the Cutler Comedy Company was made up of Frank and wife Elizabeth and their children, Burt and Myra, then little more than a toddler. Keaton wrote years later that “my own mother (Myra) was born into show business.” His father, Joe, met Myra when they performed with Capt. Billy Bryant’s vaudeville company; she joining at age 16. When Keaton regarded Myra as more than a fellow entertainer, her father Frank

Students who attend Saturday school, for disciplinary reasons, now stay after school on Friday and stay until 6 p.m. “It is used for disciplinary reasons, but it also gives students a chance to get work done and students have responded well to this change,” Fager said. REALTOR John Broker had positive news to share — the real estate market is steadily increasing. Since the beginning of the year there have been 59 closings as opposed to 43 closings in 2011 by the end of September. The amount of days houses are on the market are substantially lower than last year. Sheila Lampe, director of the Iola Area Chamber of Commerce, spoke briefly about the happenings around Iola. The 20th Buster Keaton Celebration began Friday and “there are more people in Iola this weekend, so if you get a chance to visit with them, please do,” she said. Allen Countian Gary Hawk will be inducted into the Historical Society, Oct. 13 and tickets for the dinner preceding the induction meeting are running out. The tickets are $15 apiece. “If anyone deserves this, it is Gary,” she said. Superintendent Brian Pekarek informed the audience about the recent trip USD 257 members were able to take to Topeka earlier this month. They met Gov. Sam Brownback, watched the U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s speech and members of the Age to Age pre-school program presented to the Kansas State Board of Education about the work and progress they have been making.

H Film would visit her in the nursing home almost every day of her eight-plus years there. He only missed 10 days during her stay due to illness or their grandchild’s wedding, LaCrone said. “He was just a special person,” LaCrone said. “He was tall so he would help the people in the nursing home reach things they would usually have to go get a ladder for.” Bill would insist on going to the nursing home first thing in the morning, at 10 a.m. and stay until 4 p.m. Eventually his children had to ask him to go from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and he obliged. “There was never a more devoted man than Bill,” LaCrone said. Bill supported not only Ann but the Alzheimer’s Support Group as well as Iola’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

Haven said she has become involved with the Buster Keaton celebration due to her academic work with silent film comedy. However, she explained she has become attached to the celebration and the people of Iola. This year’s celebration is Haven’s fifth year to present.

LACRONE began the Alzheimer’s Support Group 13 years ago. She has been doing the walk for eight. Each month she and a group of supporters would go to Pittsburg for support group meetings. Each year they would take the same trip for a walk. “On the way home I told our group ‘you know, if we come up here why don’t we do it in Iola’,” LaCrone said.

Quality care & rehabilitation “When I first came to Windsor Place, my left arm and leg weren’t working quite right. The therapy department helped me overcome the nerve damage that was causing me so many problems. They made me work really hard, but it all paid off. I saw a huge improvement during the course of my stay. I’m glad to be home and I am looking forward to getting back into my shop where I do woodworking, repairs and electronics.” – Gene Chambers The road to recovery has been a long one for Gene Chambers. Last summer, he was suffering from an irregular heartbeat. On June 26, he had quadruple bypass surgery in Wichita. After a 6-day stay in the hospital, Gene wasn’t yet ready to go home. He needed ‘round the clock care and a good dose of therapy to make a full recovery. Those were things Gene’s wife, Naomi, just couldn’t provide at home. That’s when Gene came to Windsor Place.

For about two months, Gene worked hard here at Windsor Place. He visited our therapy department nearly everyday where our team of physical, occupational and speech therapists helped him regain the strength and skills he had lost during his illness. If you need help recovering from surgery or lengthy illness, we invite you to come to Windsor Place. Please call (620) 365-3183, extension 20.

Opinion

A message to Rep. Jenkins of banking and insurance regulations is not to slow commerce, but to keep the playing field even. It is all but universally recognized that unregulated big banks and big insurance companies played a key role in the credit crunch that sent the world economy into recession in 2007-08. It should be agreed by that same majority that those industries should be made to play by safer rules from now on. That’s not rocket science. Cats learn by touching hot stoves. We should be at least as smart. And that, fellow citizens in the Second District, should be the message we send to Rep. Jenkins. Of course, if the advice doesn’t come in a SuperPac package it may never be unwrapped. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

A phony issue A day before the first presidential debate, Mitt Romney assailed President Obama over the sharp cuts in defense spending that will occur unless Congress reneges from its agreement to slash spending across the board if a more rational budget compromise wasn’t reached — and it wasn’t. Rep. Paul Ryan, now Romney’s vice presidential partner, voted for the deal. Today, however, Romney sees the prospect just an inch short of treason. Color the rhetoric campaign

red. Never you fear, Congress will fund the defense industry. Boeing included. What Congress shows no signs of doing is making the budget cuts and revenue increases it will take to put the nation back on the track toward deficit reduction. (Yes, taxes must rise; yes, all spending — military, too — must be reduced. Isn’t that as plain as the nose on your face?) Mention that to the next Washington type who asks for your vote in November. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

2012 escapes record book This year’s chance to be a record-setter evaporated with this week’s rainfall. Rain that fell during the 24hour period through 7 a.m. Friday — .05 of an inch — put 2012’s total at 22.32 inches, just above the alltime record for moisture futility. In 1936, Iola received 22.31 inches, a record that only a curmudgeon would covet. Farmers have been beleaguered by dry and hot weather since early spring, to the point corn crops that easily could have made well over 100 bushels an acre came in at a fraction. Farmers considered themselves fortunate if they got within shouting distance of 50 bushels. The double whammy is that corn is fetching a high price. It’s about $7 a bushel today and has pushed $8 at times. Soybeans are getting mixed reviews; September rain may have made more of a difference than anticipated. Beans these days are genetically engineered to withstand drought conditions that would have turned them to barren vines a few years ago. Many observers figured rain in September would be too late to help, but some farmers have

At Week’s End Bob Johnson mentioned that the rain has had remarkably good effects, together with warm growing weather. It’s doubtful we’ll have anything approaching a bumper harvest — 20 bushels would be great — but at today’s $15 a bushel, proceeds will add up quickly and put a little icing on the cake that failed to rise. When rain was as scarce as proverbial hen’s teeth in 1936 — think Dust Bowl days — the year had other weather features that set it apart. Summer was hot and winter was cold. Days with 100 degrees or more were common that year — the heat topped out at 114 on July 28 — and in winter the mercury plummeted to below zero several times. The hottest of hots remains 1954, though. The mercury that summer hit 100 or better 54 times, including 27 days in July and an all-time record of 116 on July 13.

Graciousness carries the day Iola City Council members began a much-needed healing process Wednesday night in their vote to reinstate former City Administrator Judy Brigham for 17 days. The vote — and Brigham’s generosity — also saved the city beaucoup bucks. In a similar case, Basehor city officials settled for $200,000 with its former city administrator who claimed he was wrongfully dismissed. Basehor city officials likely surmised the $200,000 would be a bargain compared to a jury’s decision had it gone to trial. Brigham is being gracious by saying all she wants is what she is due after 32 years as a city employee — her full retirement benefits. In August 2011, 17 days before she was due to retire, Brigham was fired. The action negated Brigham’s right to a bonus she would have received in the form of unused sick leave and a higher pension from the Kansas Public Employees System. The decision to give Brigham

Susan Lynn Register editor

her due is one more piece of a puzzle coming into place that is setting Iola on a better course. WHILE ON THE ROAD Thursday morning I was listening to a radio program about U.S. soldiers and their high rate of suicide. Today, one out of four soldiers commits suicide during or after their tours of duty. One way the armed forces are dealing with the epidemic is to develop a buddy system among soldiers that continues long after their tours. The approach is proving successful, U.S. officials say. Spc. Roger Halford spoke of how the program has affected his dealings with his training partner.

“We are a team. If he’s doing well, I’m doing well,” Halford said. The success of that kind of attitude can apply to most any situation — families, churches, places of work, and communities. If we’ve “got each other’s back,” and put the greater good of whatever the organization is, first, then success has a better chance. The Iola City Council and Brigham started the ball rolling. Let’s all take it from there. RANDOM NOTES: I’m on the road a fair amount for various commitments and, having a small bladder, make use of the ladies room in service stations. Kudos to the updated facilities at Beto Junction, intersection of U.S. 75 and Interstate 35; at the Quick Trip in El Dorado, and Sandra’s Short Stop at the Y-intersection south of Garnett. Also the new Love’s service station at the south end of Ottawa now makes me forgo the possible 2-cent savings at the filling station in downtown Garnett, precisely because its restroom is clean.

Bank of America settles for $2.43 billion By MARCY GORDON AP Business Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bank of America says it has agreed to pay $2.43 billion to settle a classaction lawsuit related to its acquisition of Merrill Lynch at the height of the financial crisis. In the lawsuit, shareholders alleged that Bank of America and some of its officers made false or misleading statements about both companies’ financial health. The lawsuit was filed on behalf of investors who bought or held Bank of America stock when the company announced its plans to buy Merrill Lynch in a $20 billion deal as the banking industry and federal regulators struggled to contain fallout from the financial crisis in the fall of 2008. Bank of America’s deal to buy Merrill Lynch was forged on the same September 2008 weekend that Lehman Brothers collapsed. The transaction came into question later after Bank of America disclosed that Merrill would post $27.6 billion in losses that year. That added significantly to Bank of America’s financial woes, and the company subsequently asked for a $20 billion bailout from the government to help offset those losses, on top of the $25 billion it had already received. It has since repaid all $45 billion. In announcing the settlement proposal on Friday, Bank of America denied the shareholders’ allegations and said that it agreed to the settlement to get rid of the uncertainties, burden and costs related to the lawsuit. “As we work to put these longstanding issues behind us, our primary focus is on the future and serving our customers and clients,” Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan said in a state-

was general reference to losses, but never “ wasThere the magnitude of those losses disclosed. This would be akin to telling someone to watch out for a pothole, when they were about to fall into the Grand Canyon.

— Mike DeWine, Ohio attorney general

ment. The investors who filed the suit said the amount of the settlement is the largest ever resolving such a claim. “We are very pleased that the settlement will recoup a substantial portion of the losses incurred by (Bank of America) shareholders,” Brian Guthrie, executive director of the Teacher Retirement System of Texas, said in a statement. “The magnitude of the recovery reinforces the important role that pension funds play when they serve as lead plaintiffs in securities actions.” Two of Ohio’s public pension funds also were among the plaintiffs in the case. Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine told reporters at a news conference in Columbus that Bank of America didn’t tell investors all the details about the huge losses that were occurring in Merrill’s fourth quarter. “There was general reference to losses, but never was the magnitude of those losses disclosed,” DeWine said. “This would be akin to telling someone to watch out for a pothole, when they were about to fall into the Grand Canyon.” The settlement still needs court approval and will be reviewed by Judge Kevin Castel of U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Most Allen Countians will be surprised to learn that Rep. Lynn Jenkins, our Second District representative, has an opponent in the election, or, moreover, that there is an issue between them. Surprise. The Rev. Tobias Schlingensiepen (say shling-ehn-SEE’pehn) of Topeka has been nominated for the job by the Democrats. The issue of the day is the $610,000 Rep. Jenkins has collected in campaign contributions from banking and insurance interests, coupled with the fact that she has voted against legislation to place more regulations on those industries. Rep. Jenkins says she opposes regulations that “limit those institutions’ ability to make loans and help the economy.” Well, who doesn’t? The point

As part of the settlement, the bank has also agreed to adopt several corporate governance policies until Jan. 1, 2015. These policies include those related to majority voting in board member elections, annual disclosure of noncompliance with stock ownership guidelines, policies for a board committee regarding future acquisitions, the independence of the board’s compensation committee and its compensation consultants and conducting an annual “say-on-pay” vote by shareholders. Bank of America, based in Charlotte, N.C., has been dogged by litigation as the consequences of the financial crisis continue to swirl around it. Most of the legal headaches stem from Bank of America’s acquisitions of Merrill and of Countrywide Financial, the brash company known for making high-risk mortgages. The Securities and Exchange Commission won a $150 million settlement from Bank of America in 2009 to resolve charges that it misled shareholders when it acquired Merrill. The SEC had accused Bank of America of failing to disclose to shareholders before they voted on the Merrill deal that it had authorized Merrill to pay as much as $5.8 billion in bonuses to its employees in 2008 even though the investment firm lost $27.6 billion that year.

H Panel grossing and wide-ranging, however, they managed only to cover the first three, from 1993 to 1995. The audience didn’t mind a bit. Panelists Clyde Toland, whose idea in 1991 led to the inaugural Keaton celebration two years later, was joined on stage by former Bowlus Fine Arts Center Executive Director Mary Martin; Fred Krebs, a humanities scholar at Johnson County Community College; John Tibbetts, an associate professor at the University of Kansas and an author, educator, broadcaster, artist and pianist; Amy Specht, Piqua resident who helped spearhead fundraisers to erect a monument to Keaton in her

hometown; and moderator Frank Scheide, a communications professor at the University of Arkansas. Krebs, who joked that his greatest claim to fame may be that he was a former classmate at KU with Toland, said the earliest years were a product of synchronicity — committee members working in league to develop a quality event for the community to enjoy — and serendipity. The serendipitous part played a role, Krebs and Toland explained, after Toland told his cousin, a federal judge living in Los Angeles, about how well the inaugural celebration had been. His cousin was friends with actor Ken Mars, perhaps best known for his

roles in Mel Brooks films “The Producers” and “Young Frankenstein.” Mars, Krebs noted, was friends with fellow actor James Karen, who happened to be a good friend of Buster Keaton and his wife, Eleanor. All three attended the second year, which led to Karen’s and Eleanor Keaton’s return appearance in 1995, coinciding with Buster Keaton’s 100th birthday. The celebration became one in which organizers had no longer had to seek out film scholars and other special guests. “They began calling us,” Toland said. Tibbetts’ contributions included painting each of the publicity photos of Keaton for the annual celebra-

tions. “After all these years, I still haven’t gotten it right,” Tibbetts joked. Martin also recalled the introduction of the Mont Alto Orchestra, the fivepiece ensemble out of Boulder, Colo. Their audition stemmed from them simply showing up at Martin’s office with instruments and cases in hand. “I wasn’t sure what to think,” Martin said. They offered to perform for a Keaton film that night. Martin agreed, and they delighted the audience. “The reaction from the audience was electric,” Tibbetts said. The orchestra has since become a regular attraction.

Martin praised the work of the countless volunteers who help ensure each year’s celebration goes off without a hitch. “There’s no way we could have done this without their help,” Martin said. A similar founders panel will be a part of this afternoon’s Keaton events at the Bowlus. The festivities resume today with presentations

by Keaton historian David Macleod at 9:40 a.m., Karen at 10:40, a group discussion of Keaton family members at 2 p.m. and historians and film preservationists Kevin Brownlow and David Shepard at 3 o’clock. Keaton’s classic silent film “The General” highlights tonight’s screenings at 7 o’clock in the Bowlus auditorium. THE

CELEBRATION

again is funded from generous donations by the Kansas Humanities Council, Sleeper and Clopton family trusts, the Iola Convention and Tourism Committee and with help from private donations. That financial assistance means all activities today and tonight are offered free of charge.

Blessed Are The Merciful

In today’s world, we don’t seem to hear much about being merciful to others, but mercy is a gift from God. Mercy is a combination of the qualities of love, compassion, kindness and forgiveness. We may say that certain people are loving, kind and gentle, but we may never think of them as merciful. The Bible tells us that God is merciful! We were spiritually dead in our sins, but God loved us so much that He made us alive with Christ, and God’s wonderful kindness is what saves us (Ephesians 2:4–5). In the book of Matthew, the unforgiving servant was shown mercy by the king because the king felt sorry for him. However, the servant then refused to show mercy to a fellow servant. When the king heard of this, he told the servant that he should have shown mercy to the fellow servant as the king had to him. The king then punished the servant and sent him to jail. I guess at times, we all may be like the servant and neglect to show mercy to others, even though we know the King of Heaven has been merciful to us.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

The timing couldn’t have been better, Iola Fire Chief Donald Leapheart said. “If they hadn’t gotten him out of that bedroom when they did, he probably wouldn’t have made it out alive,” Leapheart said. Iola firefighters were on the scene in a flash, but not before the house’s laundry room was filled with flames. “You could see flames coming from the window,” said Ron Jenkins of the Iola Fire Department. The fire was largely contained in the laundry room, bedroom and kitchen, but smoke and water damage throughout the home was extensive. The Andreses had no insurance. Firefighters were on the scene for nearly four hours, not returning to the fire station until 6 a.m. Thursday. The official cause has not been determined, although firefighters noted the fire appeared to begin near a clothes dryer in the laundry room. The American Red Cross is assisting the couple, who are staying at Crossroads Motel in Iola until permanent housing is secured. To donate, call Donna

THE BLAZE marked the second consecutive night firefighters were kept busy. They responded in the fire department’s rural truck to a burning structure owned by Chuck Schaffer at 1251 1000 St. The structure was fully engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night. It was called in when a passing motorist saw the glow from the fire from U.S. 54 west of Iola, about a mile away. No cause has been announced, although thunderstorms accompanied by frequent lightning had swept through the area that night. Firefighters were on the scene until about 4 a.m. Wednesday.

Mustangs power past Vikings By JOCELYN SHEETS jocelyn@iolaregister.com

RICHMOND — Taking what the defense gave them all night, Iola High’s Mustangs utilized the passing game to claim their third Pioneer League in as many games Friday. The Mustangs built a 27-0 halftime lead over host Central Heights High’s Vikings. They spoiled the Viking homecoming with a resounding 34-6 victory. Mason Coons connected on six of his first seven passes for the Mustangs. Adam Kauth not only caught pass from Coons, but he also took one away from Central Heights High’s Zach MacAfee. Kauth snared five passes from Coons for 74 yards. He rushed for a touchdown from 10 yards to put the Mustangs on the scoreboard first, and he caught a nine-yard touchdown strike from Coons. Those two scores came in the first quarter. Kauth intercepted MacAfee and raced 43 yards to paydirt with 19 seconds left in the first half. Coons used five different players as he went 13 of 16 for 148 yards passing. Levi Ashmore caught three passes for 36 yards. Ashmore had a catch late for six yards from backup quarterback Tyler McIntosh. “It was a great team win for us,” said Doug Kerr, Mustang head coach. “We executed the passing game and showed our growth as a football program. We’re not one dimensional and when teams game plan to stop what you do best we have to have another plan that is just as good.” Kerr said the Mustangs had two weeks to build up the passing game. He said the receivers caught the ball and had a lot of yards after catch. “Mason threw the ball well and we had good blocking downfield to spring us for some big yards. I’m proud of the kids.”

The Mustangs improved to 4-1 on the season. They are 3-0 in Pioneer League and go back on the road next Friday to Wellsville. The teams exchanged punts to open the game but Iola won the field position battle. On their second drive of the game, the Mustangs began at the Central Heights’ 43-yard line. A 15-yard pass to Ashmore put the Mustangs on the go then Coons found Kauth for nine yards. Kauth took the handoff next and scored on a 10-yard run. Isaias Macias kicked the extra point to put Iola up 7-0. Iola’s defense forced another three-and-out by the Vikings. A 15-yard penalty for a late hit on Central Heights helped the Mustang cause on the next scoring drive. The Mustangs used runs by John Whitworth, who was Iola’s leading rusher of the night with 30 yards on four carries, and Jacob Rhoads. That set up a nineyard touchdown pass from Coons to Kauth at the 3:11 mark of the first quarter. The extra-point kick was wide but the Mustangs led 13-0. A 15-yard penalty against Iola for a late hit on the kickoff put the Vikings at the Iola 42-yard line. Behind the running of Drew Beckwith, who had 89 yards on 27 carries in the game, the Vikings moved down the field. A couple of penalties set them back. Central Heights was one dimensional. MacAfee’s only completions of the night were to the wrong team. Rhodes picked off a Viking pass and returned it to the Iola 29-yard line. Using the passing game, Iola moved down the field. The big play of the drive was a 51-yard pass play from Coons to Kauth. Coons capped the drive with a sixyard touchdown run. With the extra point, Iola led 20-0. See MUSTANGS |B 2

Eight area runners District 8-man play begins earn varsity medals The at Central Heights Pressbox

Week 5 of Kansas high school football is done. For some football teams Friday night’s game was “just” a league game or regular season game. But for four area high school teams Friday, the games carried a higher priority. Kansas Eight-Man Football Divisions I and II began district play Friday night. The top two teams from each district move into postseason play. Marmaton Valley High’s Wildcats and Yates Center High’s Wildcats opened Eight-Man I, District 2 play. Marmaton Valley was at Marais Des Cygnes Valley High in Melvern while Yates Center hosted Pleasanton. Uniontown and St. Paul are also in the district. Marmaton Valley went into Friday night’s action at 4-0. St. Paul was 3-0. Pleasanton and Marais Des Cygnes Valley sat at 2-2 while Uniontown was 1-2 and Yates Center 0-4. Crest High’s Lancers faced the tough task of hosting Waverly High’s Bulldogs in Eight-Man II, District 3 play. The Lancers were 2-2 and Waverly put its 4-0 mark on the line. Southern Coffey County High’s Titans entertained Elk Valley High’s Lions. One of the teams notched its first win of the season as the Titans were 0-4 and Elk Valley was 0-3. Chetopa (2-2) had been scheduled to play Altoona-Midway but Altoona-Midway dropped its varsity schedule before the season began. Iola High’s Mustangs and Humboldt High’s Cubs will begin district play on Oct. 12. The Mustangs are in Kansas Class 4A, District 6 with Chanute, Fort Scott and Anderson County. The Cubs are in Kansas Class 3A, District 6 with Burlington, Eureka and Fredonia.

ON THURSDAY, the new school enrollment classifications were released by Kansas State High School Activities Association. Enrollment numbers are based on all four grades in high school as of Sept. 20 and determine classifications for all activities except football. Iola remains entrenched in Class 4A. For the 64 schools in 4A, enrollment numbers range from 729 to 258. Iola has 361. The other three 4A schools in the Pioneer League are Osawatomie at 353, Anderson County at Garnett with 321 and Prairie View at LaCygne with 295. Also in the Pioneer League, Wellsville with 217 students and Central Heights at Richmond with 200 students are in Class 3A. Humboldt High is among the Kansas Class 3A schools. Enrollment for 3A ranges from 256 to 159 for 64 schools. Yates Center High is in the Kansas Class 2A ranks with a 134 enrollment and Uniontown High

Jocelyn Sheets is in 2A at 136. Enrollment ranges from 158 to 101 for Class 2A’s 63 schools. Marmaton Valley High dropped from Class 2A to Class 1A this year. Marmaton Valley has 98 students and will be in 1A, Division I for basketball. Southern Coffey County High at Le Roy with 68 students and Crest High with 64 students are in Class 1A. The enrollment range is 101 to 15 students for 1A. ON THE ACC front, Allen Community College’s cross country teams remained No. 2 — the men — and No. 3 — the women — in the NJCAA rankings. Today, the Red Devil teams are competing in Oklahoma State University’s Cowboy Jamboree meet in Stillwater, Okla. Seven other ranked teams, three in the men’s race and four in the women’s race, face off in tough competition. ACC head coach Vince DeGrado said the Red Devil men’s team looks pretty sharp right now. The women’s team is banged up a bit. NFL REPLACEMENT officials are off the clock. With the settlement of the labor dispute between the NFL and the regular officials’ union, the worst-kept secret in Iola can be shared. Yes, I knew that an Iola native — Mike Wilmoth — was working the NFL games as one of the replacement officials. I spoke to Wilmoth just before the second preseason game and he said he couldn’t talk about the experience. Wilmoth told me the NFL requested they not talk to media. I even called him again last week when several articles with replacement officials’ names came out nationally. He still couldn’t talk. Wilmoth, who teaches at Wellington High School, said he would once the situation was resolved in the NFL. The secret wasn’t one in Wellington, either. But now that things have settled, he can talk. We’ll find a time we can sit down and Wilmoth can share his experience. “I’m having a blast,” he told me earlier.

RICHMOND — Abigail Taylor seems to be settling into her first year of high school cross country competition. The Iola High freshman finished in the top five again Thursday at Central Heights High Invitational cross country meet. Taylor earned the third-place medal, running the girls’ varsity 4K race in 17 minutes, 11 seconds. Yates Center High’s Emily Baker, also running cross country for the first time, finished fifth in 17:24. “Emily ran fantastic. We had talked about a goal of a top 10 finish and during the race she just kept moving up from about 14th,” said Kevin Barnes, Yates Center coach. “She was 10th, then got five more places in the last mile.” Marmaton Valley High’s Ashtynn Louk ran 25th in the varsity girls’ race in 19:09. Iola’s Shannon Vogel placed 40th in 21:07. Iola High head coach Marvin Smith withheld some runners from the varsity boys’ race for various reasons. The Mustangs did not run full force at Central Heights mainly because Iola competed in last Saturday’s Rim Rock Classic in Lawrence. Jeremy Spears, who ran at Rim Rock but dropped out of the race because of an injury, came back with a strong race Thursday. Spears ran third in the 5K most of the race, then moved to second with about 200 meters left “but got caught at the tape.” Spears finished third in 17:50 to lead the Mustangs to fifth as a team. Spring Hill won the team title with 59 points and Iola scored 101. Yates Center was sixth with 109 points and Humboldt finished eighth with 203 points. Marmaton Valley High’s

Chance Stevenson captured the 10th-place medal in 18:35. Yates Center’s Ceaton Cooper and Drake Busteed finished 12th and 13th, respectively, in 18:41 and 18:42. Humboldt High’s Nick Keazer crossed the line in a personal-best 18:46.5. for 15th. Brett Holloway, Yates Center, claimed the 18thplace medal in 19:07. For the Mustangs, Blaine Klubek placed 23rd in 19:26 with Zach St. Clair in 30th at 19:58. Bryan Mueller and Travis Hermstein was 45th and 46th, respectively, both at 20:41.

Humboldt’s Rayden Goltry was 60th in 22:03 followed by Byrce Isaac 66th in 23:20, Layne Gonzalez 67th at 23:33 and Jud Hawley 68th at 24:04. All were personal best times for the Humboldt runners, a recurring theme for the Cubs and Lady Cubs. “I did not make a mistake with all the personal-best times. This was a relatively flat course with just one steep hill so that contributed to the fast times,” said Eric Carlson, Humboldt coach. “We have had a couple of good, hard weeks of practice where we got quality runs and the kids are starting to believe in themselves.” HUMBOLDT’S Ethan Bartlett and Tanner Orth went 1-2 in the boys’ junior varsity 5K race. Bartlett won in 19:44.7 and Orth was second in 19:47.4. Placing third was Iola’s Jacob Cooper in 19:53. Tyler Holloway took the final medal of the race in 10th at 20:34. See MEDALS | B 3

Not much happened until late in the second quarter. Central Heights went to the air again. This time Kauth picked off MacAfee’s pass and raced 43 yards for the touchdown. Macias kicked the extra point for a 27-0 lead with 19 seconds on the clock. “We showed tonight that teams have to chose — do you want to stop our run or stop our passing,” Kerr said. “Were we great tonight? No, but we were good. “The most thing I’m proud about is we finished the second half. We didn’t allow them back in the game and that rolls into defensively, we played a great game. I think the kids understood the concept we wanted.” Kerr said Central Heights got its yardage on the ground — 174 yards on 44 carries. But the Mustang defense bent and didn’t break. It was a scoreless third quarter. Iola took over the football with just over two minutes left in the period and scored two plays into the fourth quarter. Coons found Jacob Harrison in the corner of the end zone on a 15-yard pass play. It was 34-0 at the 11:14 mark of the fourth quarter. The Mustang defense forced yet another three and out for the Vikings. But McIntosh muffed the Viking punt and Dakota Snow

Beckwith scored from two yards out with 4:30 left in the game. “They had to work for all those yards. Our defense gives up yards but you’re going to earn points and they earned those six,” Kerr said. Kerr used his reserves following the Viking score. The Mustangs held onto the football for the final 4:30 taking a knee near the Viking 10-yard line to run out the final seconds. Kerr pointed that Iola’s special teams play was the best it had been all season. Coons punted for the Mustangs — three for 111 yards total which is a 37-yard average. Tyler Clubine stepped in as center. “We didn’t have one bad snap tonight. Isaias did a good job kicking the ball for us,” Kerr said. Defensively, Bryce Misenhelter racked of eight unassisted tackles for the Mustangs. Whitworth had four solos and seven assisted. Stephen McDonald recorded four solo stops and five assisted tackles. Eric Heffern had four solos and one assisted tackle. Rhoads had two solo tackles and seven assisted tackles.

Iola High’s Eric Heffern (23) stops Central Heights High’s Drew Beckwith (2) for no gain in Friday’s game at Richmond. The visiting Mustangs rolled to a 34-6 win over the CHHS Vikings in Pioneer League play.

Wildcats win Cubs survive TVL tussle MELVERN — Marmaton Valley High kept its record spotless in hostile environs Friday evening. The Wildcat offense was clicking in high gear in a 66-42 win over their hosts from Marais Des Cygnes Valley High. The victory lifts the Wildcats’ record to 5-0 on the season. Just as importantly, the win comes in the opening round of Kansas Eight Man I, District 2 play. The top two teams in districts will advance to the postseason. The key to the victory, according to Wildcat head coach, was in the team’s line play on both sides of the ball. “Our offensive and defensive lines did a heck of a job,” Houk said. And despite giving up 42 points, Houk pointed to a series of critical defensive plays to seal the win. Twice Marais Des Cygnes Valley had the ball at the Marmaton Valley oneyard-line, only to come away empty on failed fourth-down plays.

And Jared Kale took over at the other end of the field. His safety in the third quarter was part of a 24-point outburst that erased a 36-22 deficit, Houk said. The Wildcats blasted their way to 395 rushing yards on the evening, including Cole Becker’s 39 carries for 252 yards. Ryan Smith added 112 yards on 17 carries. Smith also completed two of four passes for 59 yards, one to Lucas Hamlin for 25 yards and a 34-yard touchdown pass to Michael Genn. Becker added 10 tackles and Carlos Gonzales had seven stops. Kale had two sacks. Daylen Houk scored on a 25-yard touchdown run to open the proceedings. Becker added touchdown runs of 12 and 20 yards. Smith added fourth-quarter touchdown runs covering one and seven yards. Marmaton Valley returns home Friday to host Uniontown in the Wildcats’ annual homecoming contest.

CHERRYVALE — While Humboldt High’s vaunted passing attack sputtered a bit defense, the Cubs’ defense was there to pick up the slack. Not only did Humboldt keep host Cherryvale High out of any sort of scoring position in the second half of a five-point game, the Cub defense was responsible for the game’s deciding points. Humboldt’s Jacob Carpenter recovered a Charger fumble in the end zone for a touchdown, erasing a 16-14 deficit. The Cubs were able to nurse their 21-16 win down the stretch with a key drive to retain possession the last three minutes of the game. The victory lifts Humboldt to 4-1 on the season. They play fellow 4-1 Tri-Valley League foe Caney Valley next Friday. “Our defense really made the difference,” Humboldt assistant coach Mike Miller said. “They gashed us with a couple of long runs in the first half, but we were

The Wildcat A-team beat host Thayer 17-25, 25-16, 15-11 and downed AltoonaMidway 25-23, 19-25, 15-9. Trinitee Gutierrez was 33 of 33 serving for 23 points for the two matches. Kyla Drake was 24 of 26 for 15 points. “It seems our girls like to extend our matches to three sets,” said Brenda Mills, MVJH head coach. “We finally overcame our inabil-

ity to win a third set and pulled out two good wins” Marmaton Valley’s Bteam won the one set it played against Thayer 2514. It defeated Altoona-Midway 15-8, 15-10. Megan Ensminger, Clara Boyd and Lana Myers were perfect from the service line. Ensminger had nine points served. Boyd and Myers each served for six points. “This team continues to control each set and finish strong,” said Scott Brady, MVJH assistant coach.

And while we shot ourselves in the foot on offense a few times, the kids made some huge plays down the stretch on offense.” One week after throwing for 388 yards, Humboldt quarterback Nathan Whitcomb completed 6 of 22 passes for 95 yards against Cherryvale. “He under-threw a couple, and the ones on target, we dropped,” Miller said. Whitcomb and Jacob Carpenter shared highrushing honors for Humboldt with 41 yards apiece. Tanner McNutt pulled in three receptions for 39 yards. Noah Thornbrugh’s only catch also covered 39 yards. Carpenter gave Humboldt a 7-0 lead less than a minute into the game on a four-yard touchdown run. Cherryvale scored 16 unanswered points to pen the second quarter before Whitcomb pulled Humboldt to within two, 16-14, with a 29-yard touchdown

run with 3:14 left in the second quarter. Carpenter’s key fumble recovery with 2:19 left in the half capped the scoring. It was Humboldt’s only recovery of eight Cherryvale fumbles on the night. “They had some troubles snapping the ball,” Miller said. Tyler Gean added 14 tackles for the Cubs.

“We played pretty well in the first half but we just didn’t have the intensity in the second half,” said Marty Taylor, IMS head football coach. “Nate really ran hard in the game. He had a couple of mistakes but overall he did a good job. Colton Toney played well on the defensive line.” Evans rushed for 161 yards on 19 carries. Ben Cooper completed five of 12 passes for 80 yards and was intercepted once. Chase Regehr made four catches for 30 yards. Garrett Wade made one catch for 50 yards. Seth Sanford rushed seven times for 18 yards. Ethan Scheibmeir had six carries for 11 yards. Iola travels to Burlington Monday.

Evan Sigg’s pass was right on target. Isaac Vink looked back, made the catch in stride and raced into the end zone. Iola Middle School’s seventh-grade Ponies opened their home game Thursday with a 51-yard scoring pass play. Cale Barnhart plowed over the goal line for the two-point conversion.

Vink rushed for 39 yards on five carries. Sigg picked up 33 yards

on 11 carries and was three of 12 passing for 74 yards. He had two interceptions. Ethan Holloway caught two passes for 23 yards. Vink had the one catch for 51. Iola travels to Burlington Monday.

Crest High’s Lancers lost a close, high-scoring game to the Waverly High Bulldogs Friday night. The game was a shootout from the start, leading to a final score of 70-36. The loss was not due to a lack of offense. Crest racked up 469 yards. The Lancers had success passing and running the ball, as did the Bulldogs. Waverly took the lead late in the first half, 28-24, before scoring 18 consecutive points in the third and fourth quarters to turn a 4640 lead into a 64-40 cushion. Kyle Hammond led Crest with 185 yards on 25 carries. He also completed 16 of 22 passes for 195 yards. Dylan Sedlak rushed for 71 yards on 10 carries, and added 84 yards on four receptions. Brock Ellis racked up 75 yards on eight catches. Scoring came easily to both teams during the game, with only two turnovers and no punts. Hammond totaled six touchdowns in all — two passing and four rushing. Jordan Morton followed with two more touchdowns for the Lancers to go with 46 yards receiving and eight

However, head coach Brent Smith noted it was

not enough to stop Waverly from scoring 32 points in the second half. He said the Lancers competed on a high level throughout the game, but

were lacking on the defensive side. “We can score anytime we want to,” Smith said. “We just need to play some defense.”

The Lancers’ record dropped to 2-3 overall, with a 0-1 record in district play. Crest goes on the road to Chetopa in Eight-Man II, District 3 play next Friday.

The Titans took to the ground for the majority of the game, accumulating a total of 293 yards rushing for the first half — which turned out to be the only half played. The game ended after the second quarter due to the state mercy rule for eight man football. Touchdowns were evenly distributed among SCC’s players, with Walker Harred, Chism Newkirk, Charlie Patterson, Michael Hill, Colton Toy, Tuner Anderson and Luke Kraft all making it to the end zone. Those touchdowns, along with defensive tackles in

the end zone, led to the Titans scoring 42 points in the first quarter alone. Josiah Witteman defensively led the team with three tackles, two assisted tackles and one quarterback sack. Elk Valley managed to score at the end of the first quarter with a 60-yard kickoff return from Nick Monjure. Korey Lankton, head coach for the Titans, said the team had a good opportunity to put most of their players in for a significant amount of time. The goal for this week’s game was to make improvements for SCC’s tough upcoming schedule, Lankton said. “All 18 of our kids were suited-up and got considerable playing time,” Lankton said, “Getting all of the

kids some good reps was important and I think they each got some value out of it.” The Titans improved their record to 1-4 in the season. Southern Coffey County’s first win of the season came in Eight-Man II, District 3 opener. Next Friday, the Titans go to Chetopa

The Marmaton Valley High School Family Career and Community Leaders of America chapter hosted Family Day Monday with a free spaghetti dinner. FCCLA members watched young children for their parents so they could attend a nearby Parent Teacher Organization meeting as well. The goal for the evening was to stress the importance of families gathering regularly for meals.

Hope Chapel Assembly of God will host community gospel singing at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the church, along U.S. 54 between Moran and Bronson. Anyone who sings is invited. (Gospel music only). Performers must call (620) 939-4828. The event is open to the public.

Rockwell models reunite ARLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Twenty or so people who posed in the 1940s for their neighbor Norman Rockwell in the small Vermont town of Arlington are reuniting today to share their memories of the great American artist who once lived in their midst. Rockwell captured scenes of everyday life in his illustrations for covers of the Saturday Evening Post, for the Boy Scouts and its Boys’ Life, art now considered the very definition of Americana. He would pay his neighbors $5 a pop to sit for him. “The Saturday Evening Post came out weekly, and we couldn’t wait to see what was on the cover,” said Mary Hall, who posed for Rockwell four times. “You

DAILY CRYPTOQUOTES - Here’s how to work it:

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

JIMMIE JOHNSON VS. DENNY HAMLIN

Feuds were hard to come by in New Hampshire, where all the caution flags were for debris or â&#x20AC;&#x153;competition,â&#x20AC;? but the principals established themselves as Chase favorites, Hamlin by winning and Johnson by finishing second again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I noticed his (Hamlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) rear end moving,â&#x20AC;? Johnson quipped, referring to similar complaints about the handling characteristics of his Chevy that may have led to a NASCAR rules change. It was all in fun. NASCAR This Weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Monte Dutton gives his take: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point was that Hamlin had an overwhelming advantage this time. Even at this early point in the Chase, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still the opportunity for a bit of goodnatured gamesmanship.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a surprising year for Kevin Harvick, who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won this season. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the Chase and just 31 points off Jimmie Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace, but still the Childress driver is hoping to find some consistency with eight races left in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.

 The Chase is taking shape. Half the field â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jimmie Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Hamlin, Tony Stewart, Kasey Kahne and Clint Bowyer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is separated by 15 points. The other half is more than 25 points off Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace.  Kahne is quiet by nature, and so are his finishes of third and fifth in the two Chase races to date. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right in the championship picture, though.  Hamlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 22nd career victory was also owner Joe Gibbsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 100th.  Joe Gibbs Racing has won seven times this year: five by Hamlin and one each by Kyle Busch and Joey Logano, neither of whom made the Chase.  Once upon a time, money was a major issue in NASCAR, whose officials play it down nowadays. For the record, the leader in points, Johnson, is also the leader in money, with $6,575,261 deposited in the Hendrick Motorsports coffers so far as a result of his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts.  By the way, Matt Kenseth ranks second in money won with $5,976,759. Why? Winning the Daytona 500 is worth a lot.  Dale Earnhardt Jr. was fortunate to salvage a 13th out of New Hampshire. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been some time since he had such an obviously off week.

 Dale Earnhardt Jr. and race winner Denny Hamlin both benefited from well-timed caution flags for debris in New Hampshire. Yellow flags kept Earnhardt from being lapped and enabled Hamlin to pit under a yellow flag, thus preserving his considerable advantage in New Hampshire.

Sprint Cup Series

NASCAR This Week

LOUDON, N.H. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The good news is that Kevin Harvick managed to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup for the sixth time in the last seven seasons. The bad news is that, so far, Harvick hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t managed to win a race. He finished 11th in the second installment of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race-offs and is already 31 points off Jimmie Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace. Richard Childress Racing, where Harvick competes alongside Jeff Burton and Paul Menard, is winless, though the organization has prospered in the Nationwide and Camping World Truck series. RCR last went winless at the Cup level in 2009. The team has been stuck on 100 Sprint Cup victories all year. Harvick won four times in 2011. Twice Harvick has finished second this season, the most recent runner-up showing occurring at Dover International Speedway, the next stop on the Cup schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think for us we need to make our cars better,â&#x20AC;? Harvick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to get faster.â&#x20AC;? Duh.

FOOD

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been fortunate to be in the position that we are in, pointswise. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to kind of balance that with trying to get better and also trying to protect what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got.â&#x20AC;? Harvick, 36, has a knack for consistency. In the past three weeks, the Bakersfield, Calif., native has finished 10th, 12th and 11th. In fact, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finished in a range of 10th to 16th in eight of the past nine races. The exception was a fifth at Atlanta on Labor Day weekend. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the kind of consistency Harvick has in mind. The RCR operation finds itself playing catch-up in the Chase, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good place to be. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there is really one specific thing that you can put your finger on to say this is what we are doing,â&#x20AC;? Harvick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of things that need to get better. Everybody is working on them. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t capitalize on the situations that we were in to win races at the beginning of the year. Performance hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been exactly where we needed to be. Everybody is working hard to try to get it to that point. Hopefully, we can do that.â&#x20AC;? At this late point, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard feat to accomplish.

Dear NASCAR This Week, Could you tell me how the announcers say that after they clean up the track for the yellow flag, there will be three laps to go? A green-white-checkered? This is only two laps, not three laps. Thank you. Bob Ward Princeton, Ind. Apparently because they messed up.

Turnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Race To Win The third race of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second season was run at the famed, and famously dangerous, mile dirt track in Langhorne, Pa., on April 16, 1950. Curtis Turner drove an Oldsmobile to victory, finishing a lap ahead of Lloyd Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lincoln and six ahead of Jimmy Florianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ford. Another two of the sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early legends, Tim Flock and Lee Petty, finished on the same lap. Unfortunately, they were 11 off Turnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blistering pace.

Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mustache didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really last long

 Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot: Jimmie Johnson is first in the points standings by one. Meanwhile, he finished second for the second time in as many Chase races. ... Denny Hamlin won for the fifth time, leading 193 of the final 206 laps in New Hampshire.  Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not: Ford drivers had a nightmarish day, with Matt Kenseth unable to finish any higher than 14th and Roush Fenway teammate Greg Biffle settling for 18th. The Blue Oval drivers are both more than 30 points out of the Chase lead.

Enjoy the racing season...
