scandal detailed

ATLANTA (AP) — Former Atlanta schools Superintendent Beverly Hall knew about cheating allegations on standardized tests but either ignored them or tried to hide them, according to a state investigation. An 800-page report released Tuesday to The Associated Press by Gov. Nathan Deal’s office through an open records request shows several educators reported cheating in their schools. But the report says Hall, who won the national Superintendent of the Year award in 2009, and other administrators ignored those reports and sometimes retaliated against the whistleblowers. The yearlong investigation shows educators at nearly four dozen Atlanta elementary and middle schools cheated on standardized tests by helping students or changing the answers once exams were handed in. The investigators also found a “culture of fear, intimidation and retaliation” in the school district over the cheating allegations, which led to educators lying Register/Alilson Tin about the cheating or destroying Roger Carlin, left, picks up his $50 gift card to Walmart from,

lower than the growth in each of the past two years, and the smallest increase since 2009 when sales were up just 0.3 percent. The projections are an important indicator for retailers that depend on the last two months of the year for up to 40 percent of their annual sales. But the estimates also offer valuable insight for economists who closely watch consumer spending, which accounts for up to 70 percent of economic activity.

The holiday shopping season is one gauge of not only the shopping habits, but also the mindset of the average American during what has turned out to be a slow and uneven economic recovery. Right now, people are feeling better about rising home prices and a rebounding stock market, but job growth is still weak and prices for everything from food to gas are higher. At the same time, there’s uncertainty about who the next president will be and some Americans worry that

the U.S. debt crisis could lead to another recession. “In all the years, this is the most challenging year doing a forecast,” said Matthew Shay, president and CEO of the National Retail Federation, based in Washington, D.C. “There are so many uncertainties.” No one’s feeling those uncertainties more than U.S. shoppers. Darlene Johnson of Silver Spring, Md., says her outlook has improved in the last few months. The value of her 401(k) retirement plan has risen.

Judge postpones enaction of new Pennsylvania voter I.D. law HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A judge postponed Pennsylvania’s controversial voter identification requirement today, ordering the state not to enforce it in this year’s presidential election but allowing it to go into full effect next year. The decision by Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson on the law requiring each voter to show a valid photo ID could be appealed to the state Supreme Court. However, Simpson based his decision on guidelines given to

him days ago by the high court justices, and it could easily be the final word on the law just five weeks before the Nov. 6 election. One lawyer for the plaintiffs said it appeared to be a “win.” His ruling came after listening to two days of testimony about the state’s eleventh-hour efforts to make it easier to get a valid photo ID. He also heard about long lines and ill-informed clerks at driver’s license centers and identification requirements that made it hard for some registered voters

to get a state-issued photo ID. The 6-month-old law — now among the nation’s toughest — has sparked a divisive debate over voting rights and become a high-profile political issue in the contest between President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and Republican nominee Mitt Romney, for Pennsylvania’s prized 20 electoral votes. Pennsylvania, traditionally considered one of the most valuable presidential swing states, is showing a persistent lead for President Barack

Jay Tredway, 26, Iola, told police Sunday morning somebody damaged the driver’s side window and cut the left rear tire of his 2001 Dodge pickup while it was parked in the 1600 block of East Carpenter Street.

The cause of a fire that destroyed a vacant house remains under investigation, Iola Deputy Fire Chief Tim Thyer said this morning. The fire, reported shortly before 3:30 a.m. Monday, was spotted at 411 S. Fourth St., but not before much of the house was fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters extinguished the blaze before it could spread elsewhere, but not before the house was considered a total loss.

Biblesta committee makes final preparations By TERRY BROYLES Humboldt Correspondent

HUMBOLDT—If there was a designated “crunch week” in terms of planning the 55th annual Biblesta Parade celebration, this would be it. “This week we’ll finish up about a thousand details,” committee chairwoman Shirley Fisher said. Tonight will conclude the committee’s regular schedule and by Saturday the results of months of planning will become a reality. Members will meet Friday evening to ask that the day’s activities will be blessed, that lives will be touched by the music and the message of each float, and for safety throughout the day and evening. The short prayer service is open to everyone in the community and will begin at 6:30 in the city square. On Saturday, a full day of entertainment has been arranged with all ages in mind. A free meal of beans cooked in kettles will be served and the evening will conclude with “Biblesta After Dark,” a rally geared toward teenagers and young adults. Thirteen floats, four walking entries and four

marching bands have registered for the parade that will travel east on Bridge Street, south on Eighth Street, east on Sycamore Street and back north on Ninth Street to the city square. “The parade route was changed this year to turn on Sycamore instead of Pine Street,” Carollyn Barnett, committee member, said. “There is quite an incline off Pine to get onto Ninth that some of the float entries were having trouble negotiating. The turn on Sycamore should be easier for them.” The day’s festivities will begin at 8 a.m. with a 3k/5k walk/run starting in front of City Hall. The community choir will sing on the square at 10:30, followed by the Fisher Family and The Missourians. The Biblesta Parade, with floats in chronological order depicting stories from the Bible, begins at 1:30 p.m. The Cruz Drumline will follow the parade. Next to perform is The Arnolds at 3:30. Awards for the parade entries will be announced at 4:15 and free ham and beans will be served at 5. While visitors enjoy the

Bank celebrates 25 years By TERRY BROYLES Humboldt Correspondent

HUMBOLDT — Community National Bank and Trust will celebrate its 25th anniversary Friday at the bank’s Humboldt branch, marking the milestone with an ice cream and cake social from 4 to 6 p.m. “It’s a small way to thank people in the Humboldt area for making the bank successful,” bank president, Ken Gilpin said. “We invite customers and friends of the bank to come by enjoy some cake and ice cream and see our newly remodeled building.” CNB opened its doors in Humboldt, at 116 N. Eighth

St. Dec. 19, 1994. It is completing a significant remodeling project, which includes upgrading the interior of the bank. A new drive-up ATM will be installed within the next 30 days. “This change should make it much more convenient for our customers,” Steve Hoag, vice president and banking center manager, said. The local banking center employs five and comprises about $25 million of the bank’s total assets. Officers and staff are Gilpin, Hoag, Jennifer VanLeeuwen, Laura Ball, Misti Love and Bridget Rausch.

Community National Bank was first chartered in Chanute in 1987 and was organized by a shareholder group led by Chairman of the Board Phil Eastep, President and chief executive officer Dan Mildfelt and Mike Mitchell. The bank has grown to more than $800 million in assets and serves 21 communities with 24 facilities and 31 ATMs in southeast and south central Kansas. “It has been exciting to be associated with a banking organization that focuses on serving communities like Humboldt,” Gilpin said.

Opinion

She’s the real deal She’s soft-spoken, diminutive, and has the willpower of a warrior. It’s also a miracle she’s alive. Aung San Suu Kyi is now Myanmar’s poster child. In a dramatic turnabout, she has gone from political prisoner to political leader. For more than 15 years she was imprisoned for speaking out against the dictatorial government, actions protected under our First Amendment. In 2010, she was released. In April, she was elected to the Myanmar National Assembly where she now continues her fight for democratic reform. Today she is on a tour of the

United States, in part to belatedly accept the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest award Congress gives for valor. Suu Kyi’s release also has opened the floodgates of U.S. humanitarian aid to her impoverished country, which the United States still calls Burma. Sanctions are being eased, Burmese leaders are being recognized, trade relations are improving. Suu Kyi is proof democracy remains the beacon of hope for many around the world who suffer injustice sometimes by just the fickle hand of fate. In short, she’s a real-life heroine. — Susan Lynn

Letter to the editor Dear editor,

Prior to early August, I had never even heard of Iola. Then I learned about the Buster Keaton Celebration. Being a fan of Keaton and Charlie Chaplin and other silent film legends, I decided to make the six-hour drive from St. Louis to see what could possibly be happening in Iola. Now, after three days and nights there, I have become a booster for your wonderful town. The people I met there were

friendly and interesting, went out of their way to make me feel welcome, showed me what a special place their home is. I spent part of a sunny afternoon walking around town, visiting some of the shops, looking at the long list of names on the war memorial in the park on Madison, admiring the old cinema (I hope someone steps up to save it). I enjoyed excellent meals at your restaurants, a comfortable stay at Best Western, and a special dinner and presentation at

the Allen County Country Club. Some of the names I remember of people who helped make my stay so enjoyable are Susan Raines, Bruce Symes, Frank Scheide, Clyde Toland, Amy Specht and John Tibbetts. And there were many more. Your town has a lot to be proud of. It was on display this past weekend. I’ll be back next year for some more Buster and Iola. Cordially, Gerry Mandel St. Louis, Mo.

community, from NATO and from the devil himself if necessary to protect them.” — Haitham Manna, a Paris-based veteran Syrian dissi-

dent in comments after Syria’s foreign minister accused the U.S. and its allies of promoting “terrorism” and blaming everyone from neighbors and extremists to the media for escalating the war — except the Syrian government.

Health care workers should know better than anyone that it is important to get vaccinated against the flu virus to protect their own health and prevent the possibility of infecting patients. There were some encouraging signs in an analysis issued Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that doctors and nurses are beginning to get the message. But other health care workers — a broad group that includes clinical personnel like nurse practitioners and physician assistants and various nonprofessional aides and assistants — show remarkable indifference to performing what ought to be considered their civic duty. The C.D.C. survey found that 67 percent of all health care workers were vaccinated during the 2011-12 flu season, up slightly from 64 percent the season before. Looking back over the past three seasons, the C.D.C. found that the percentage of physicians getting flu vaccine rose from 81

Vaccinations of health care personnel should be required, either by state laws or by employers. to 86 percent; the percentage of nurses jumped from 69 to 80 percent. Those rates don’t meet the national goal of 90 percent, but they are headed in the right direction. Vaccination rates for other health care personnel remained roughly similar for all three years, in the low-60 percent range. Most disturbing, excluding doctors and nurses, only about half of the workers in long-term care facilities, which treat patients at high risk of complications if they get the flu, got vaccinated last season. When respondents were asked why they were not vaccinated, the most common reasons were a belief that they did not need it, concern about whether the vaccine was effective

and worries about side effects. Vaccinations of health care personnel should be required, either by state laws or by employers. The survey found that 95 percent of workers in hospitals that required vaccinations got them, compared with only 68 percent of those in hospitals without such a rule. Even without making it mandatory, employers can make a difference by promoting vaccination through educational campaigns, by providing incentives and making vaccine easily available at no cost. Some 75 percent of workers whose institutions promoted vaccination got the flu vaccine. Employers need to press more of their workers to do so. — The New York Times

Obesity burdens states with more costs, illnesses Missouri’s weight problem is the public’s business. Ditto for Kansas. Dealing with it head-on could save billions of dollars for taxpayers in both states. A report released last week showed the two states creeping perilously close to the top 10 in the nation’s obesity rankings. Researchers projected Kansas would be tied with Louisiana as the seventh most obese state by 2030, with Missouri right behind in ninth place. Right now, Missouri is the 12th most obese state, and Kansas is tied with Ohio for 13th. The report, by Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, projects that two-thirds of adults in both Kansas and Missouri will be obese by 2030 unless people make substantial changes in food and lifestyle patterns. That is a frightening forecast. Obesity is a cause of diabetes, heart disease, strokes, depression, multiple types of cancer and other afflictions. It also is already a leading factor in staggering state Medicaid costs borne by tax-

payers, and those will accelerate unless something is done. The obesity question made for a rare moment of agreement Friday between Democrat Claire McCaskill and Republican Todd Akin, who are running for the U.S. Senate seat from Missouri now held by McCaskill. Both said government had no business telling Americans what and how to eat. Of course no one wants Uncle Sam roving the supermarket aisles, shooing shoppers away from the potato chips and toward the broccoli. But public officials make a big mistake by ignoring the obesity problem, or trying to pack it into a “big brother” box. The financial and physical health of states and their populations depends on getting obesity under control. As last week’s report pointed out, Missouri could save $5 billion between now and 2030 by reducing its overall body mass index by 5 percent and preventing 180,000 cases of diabetes. Kansas could prevent 77,000 cases of diabetes and save $2.4 billion in health care costs. One leader who gets it is Kan-

Two-thirds of adults in both Kansas and Missouri will be obese by 2030 unless people make substantial changes in food and lifestyle patterns. sas Gov. Sam Brownback. A few weeks ago he called together more than 200 state officials, health workers and members of the Governor’s Council on Fitness for a day-long summit on obesity. By the end of the session, Brownback had assigned the secretary of the state’s Department of Health and Environment to assess how to get healthier foods and more opportunities for activity into all state cafeterias and residential facilities. Brownback also pledged to pull together a friendly competition to encourage “walking teams” around the state. Participants came up with a host of other ideas for the public sector to influence food and lifestyle choices in a positive way. A sample: — Encourage more physical activity in child care centers, perhaps through licensing incen-

tives. — Promote wellness programs in workplaces. — Work with retailers to encourage healthier food in underserved areas. These aren’t huge, intrusive steps, but efforts elsewhere to get people moving and eating more fruits and vegetables have shown

positive results. Kansas leaders should be commended for addressing the problem. Missouri should take a lead from its neighbor. Though scattered anti-obesity efforts exist in the state, some of them coordinated by the Missouri Council for Activity & Nutrition, there has been no high-profile, concerted campaign to tackle this public health problem. Missouri cannot afford to be in denial. Top leaders should get out in front of a campaign for healthier lifestyles. — The Kansas City Star

Slight advantages to patch-burning The KSU Bressner Range Unit consists of two adjacent half sections of native grass near Yates Center, donated by the Willie J. Bressner estate in 1988. The past seven years the research project has been focused on “patch-burn” versus “full-burn” management practices each spring and resulting cattle performance and plant composition changes. Of the eight individual pastures, four were patchburned and four were fullburned each April. The patch-burn treatments are implemented on a third of the area each year with the burn cycle being repeated starting at year four. Stockers grazed from late April to Aug. 15 each year. Stocking rates were 2.7 acres per head utilizing

Delta George Extension Agent for Agriculture 550-pound calves. Cattle had free access to all areas within each pasture. Cattle performance results: Since there was no year by treatment interaction the data was analyzed across all years. The greatest cattle gains were achieved in 2009 and 2010 with the lowest in 2007 and 2012. There were no significant differences in average daily gain between the full-burn and patch-burn treatments or the season-long gains. Cattle grazing on the patch-

burn gained 2.44 pound/ head/day over the study while the cattle on the fullburn pastures gained 2.42 pounds/head/day; season long gains were 118 and 116 pounds/acre respectively. Forage composition results: In the full-burn areas the five major native grass species (big bluestem, little bluestem, indiangrass, switchgrass, and sideoats grama) were relatively stable making up between 58-76 percent of the botanical composition during the study. Annual grasses (crabgrass, yellow bristlegrass, and common witchgrass) were generally less than 10 percent of the composition in the full-burn pastures. After two patch-burn cycles, the botanical composition shifts were similar under both types of treatment.

One major change was the forbs tended to increase under patch-burning compared to the full-burn. Sericea lespedeza increased under both treatment types. The increase in annual grasses the year of the patch-burning was the most dramatic change. However these species declined in the two years following the patch-burn. Big bluestem, sideoats grama, and forbs remained relatively consistent during the patch-burn cycle; little bluestem and indiangrass recovered following the first burn while switchgrass composition has trended downward. This information was adapted from the Bressner Field Day proceedings; full articles and research findings are available from the Southwind Extension District, Fort Scott office.

Food safety makes tailgates winners There’s nothing like a tailgate party ahead of a big game to bring people together for good food and fun, and a few simple tips can help keep the event safe. Karen Blakeslee, KState Research and Extension food scientist, offers some reminders on how to keep food safe while tailgating, picnicking and during other outdoor events. Blakeslee cites cross contamination as a frequent error at picnics, potlucks and tailgating during the fall sports season. Cross contamination occurs when bacteria from one food is transferred to another. Transporting food can increase the risk of a food safety mistake. But those mistakes are preventable. To ensure that juices from meat or poultry do not seep onto other foods: • Use protective plastic bags available at the grocery store. • Place meat and poultry items on the lower basket of the cart so juices will not drip onto fresh fruits, vegetables and other items in the cart. • Separate and store foods by category once home. When holding or thawing frozen meat or poultry in the refrigerator, place it in a shallow baking pan or tray with a lip to catch juices and avoid cross contamination. Errors also can occur when plates, platters, knives and other serving utensils are used for both raw and cooked foods without washing before and after each use, said Blakeslee, who advises cooks to dedicate utensils to each food item and keep raw foods separate from cooked foods. If grilling meats and poultry on the same grill with fruits and vegetables, she also advises using separate areas for each.   Washing the rind before cutting into a melon with a clean knife will reduce the risk of transferring potentially harmful bacteria that may have been present in the soil on which the melon grew. Other tips for healthful tailgating and picnics include: • Plan a menu to match the size of the group to minimize leftovers that could spoil during the game. • If sharing the respon-

Anne Ludlum Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences sibilities for the food, ask those traveling the shortest distances to bring the perishable foods; invite others to bring non-perishable items. • Use one insulated cooler for raw foods such as beef patties, brats or chicken, and a separate insulated cooler for perishable cooked foods, such as cooked meats, pasta or potato salad. • Dedicate a third cooler for beverages that can be opened more frequently without jeopardizing the safety of other foods. Each time a cooler is opened, the temperature inside the cooler rises. • Place plenty of ice and an appliance thermometer in each cooler; food should remain at 40 degrees or below. • Transport food in the air-conditioned passenger compartment, and shade it with a blanket. Shade coolers, picnic basket and other foods on site. • Pack a food thermometer, and check internal cooked temperatures; poultry, 165 degrees; ground meats, 160 degrees; and beef, pork, lamb and veal steaks, roasts and chops, 145 degrees. • Pack water, moist towelettes, soap, hand sanitizer, paper or other towels. • Wait to get food out until shortly before cooking and serving; shade foods from direct sunlight,  and return leftovers to coolers within one hour or less if the temperature is 90 degrees or above, and two hours or less if the temperature is lower.  • If sharing cooking responsibilities for a large group, keep recipes separate, rather than blending them, to simplify identifying an errant food if foodborne illness becomes an issue. Following these practices will help ensure outdoor eating memories are pleasant ones. For questions on topics related to health and wellness, contact Ann Ludlum at 620-223-3720, aludlum@ ksu.edu, or your local Southwind District Extension office.

More drought aid available for farmers A United States Department of Agriculture program will provide cost-share assistance for livestock producers affected by the ongoing drought. The program will fund up to 75 percent of the cost for temporary measures to provide water for livestock — hauling in water in tanks or piping in water from an alternate source if the primary source is inadequate or hauling water, for example — or 50 percent if the measure is considered per-

manent, such as constructing and deepening wells. “This will be very important for area livestock producers who had to take measures to provide water to their livestock herds,� said Doug Peine, chief executive officer of Allen and Anderson counties for the Farm Service Agency, which is administering the program. Producers may file an application from Oct. 15 through Nov. 15 at the local FSA office.

Allen County is among those designated as “Drought Extreme� by the U.S. Drought Monitor, which makes such designations if the total precipitation over the last four months is 40 percent or more below normal rainfall amounts.

“I want to make sure we bring good, quality programs,� Jacobson said. “The challenge remains constant. How can we make processes better for students?� Jon Marshall, vice president for academic affairs at the college, said he has enjoyed working with Jacobson since she took her position with student affairs. Jacobson has already begun working with the financial aid program at the college to help make its processes more efficient. Marshal said approximately 80 percent of ACC students rely on some sort of financial aid. Marshall said Jacobson’s past experiences will help bring fresh outlooks for the administration at the college. “It is exciting to have Cynthia because of the variety and perspective that she brings,� Marshall said. “It only adds to the college and makes it a richer place.� Marshall said he expects to see significant impact from Jacobson’s contributions within one or two years.

He said her impact is evident because she already has engaged “gently but directly� into processes with the college. “Cynthia has a world of experience and it’s already starting to pay off,� said John Masterson, president of ACC. Masterson said processes in the college are important — specifically when considering reporting information on current students. There can be heavy consequences if the information is handled incorrectly, Masterson said, adding Jacobson has a good understanding of the process. Outside of work, Jacobson said she has enjoyed becoming familiar with Iola. She said while a small community is a familiar environment, there still is a significant transition to her new location. The people of Iola have made this an easy one, she said. Jacobson said she has been busy since she started her job in early August, but there has been time to tend to some of her favorite hobbies, which include reading, shopping for antiques and walking her dog, Apollo.

from Election Day, a majority of residents may have already voted in such battlegrounds as Florida, Colorado, Nevada and North Carolina. That is why Wednesday’s first debate will be so important: It will very likely shape the narrative of the race for days afterward and set expectations for the two sides heading into an Oct. 11 matchup of the vice presidential candidates and the two Romney-Obama sessions that follow. Obama arrived in southern Nevada on Sunday for several days of pre-debate cramming at Lake Las Vegas, a resort community in the suburb of Henderson. Romney, who has been practicing for months, was closeted with aides in Boston for another round of rehearsals. As the challenger trailing in polls, Romney could gain the most from the debates, depending, of course, on his performance. Just by stepping on stage at the University of Denver, Romney could enhance his stature. As

Obama strategists — anticipating the post-debate analyses — are eager to point out, a challenger often gets a boost, at least in the first face-to-face meeting, just by standing alongside the incumbent and holding his own. (Contrary to efforts by both sides to lower the bar, both men are skilled in the cutand-thrust of campaign debates.) Republicans, frustrated with Romney’s campaign, said he needed to do more than recite familiar talking points and parry Obama’s scripted zingers. They urged him to seize the opportunity — with tens of millions watching — to make a clearer, more forceful case for himself to voters who don’t seem especially eager, despite high

Given Romney’s debate performances during the primary season, when the Republican candidates met nearly two dozen times, Wadhams said he was confident the GOP nominee could rise to the occasion. He had better, Wadhams added: “If he doesn’t, I don’t know what he can do to change the dynamic of this race.� Despite Obama’s current edge in the polls, however, neither side is ready to declare the race over.

ACC men finish third at Oklahoma State By JOCELYN SHEETS jocelyn@iolaregister.com

STILLWATER, Okla. — Running in the oldest cross country meet in the nation, Allen Community College’s Red Devil teams had mixed results Saturday in the Oklahoma State Cowboy Jamboree. Allen’s men finished third overall in a 20-team field comprised of two-year college teams along with NCAA Division 1 and 2 and NAIA four-year teams. The Red Devil men, ranked No. 2 in NJCAA, lost to No. 3 ranked Iowa Central and NAIA No. 4 ranked Southwestern, which won the meet. Allen’s women had a tough time in the Oklahoma State meet. Allen head coach Vince DeGrado said the Red Devil women struggled for the first time this season, finishing eighth out of 26 teams. “In years past that might be great for Allen but with my expectations and where we’re ranked, we can’t afford to have bad races,” DeGrado said of the fourthranked Red Devil women. DeGrado said the course conditions weren’t the greatest because of the excessive woodchips used by Oklahama State. “But everybody has to run in those conditions,” he said. “I’m a little disappointed we (the ACC men) lost to a team ranked below us but Iowa Central’s tradition means it will always be tough. We did beat fellow Region VI favorite Colby Community College by more than 30 points.” See ACC | B2

Senior Tyler Clubine, left, and junior Adam Kauth were named the MVPs of last Friday’s Iola High 34-6 win at Central Heights as this week’s Cops for Jocks. On hand for the weekly honors presented by the Iola Police Department are, left to right, Mike Aronson, Steve Womack and IPD Chief Jared Warner. Cops for Jocks is a program between the IPD and the IHS Mustang football team to recognize outstanding play in each of the Iola football games.

Iola High’s varsity volleyball team prepared for senior night this Thursday. But the Register was informed Monday evening the home volleyball matches with Labette County and Coffeyville will not be in Iola. The matches, which are Southeast Kansas League events for Labette County and Coffeyville, are at Coffeyville. On the original schedule, it was slated for Iola, which is no longer an SEK member. So on Thursday, the Fillies travel to Coffeyville for non-league matches against host Coffeyville and Labette County. Iola’s varsity does not have any home matches left on its schedule. IHS athletic director Martin Bambick said they were looking at options for a senior night for the Fillies volleyball team. All IHS seniors involved in fall athletics and their parents are recognized before the final home football game each season.

Iola Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior varsity football team scored early and late in its home game Monday night. But sandwiched in between, visiting Central Heights Highâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vikings found the end zone three times. The Mustangs came up short, 20-13, in their next to last football game. The junior varsity is 3-3 on the season. Iolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior varsity hosts Wellsville next Monday. A game scheduled with Chanute on Oct. 15 has been cancelled. A high snap sailed over the Central Heights punterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head. The punter picked the football up in the end zone but was tackled at the five-yard line. The Mustangs took advantage with a three-yard touchdown run by Keanen Badders. The extra-point kick was blocked. Central Heights tied the game at 6-6 and led 12-6 at halftime. The Vikings had a touchdown and two-point conversion to go up 18-6 in the third quarter. Shane Walden scored on a six-yard run in the fourth quarter for Iola. Mason Key kicked the extra point. According to IHS head coach Doug Kerr, there was some technical problems and no individual statistics were available.

Royals lose, Tigers clinch title KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Miguel Cabrera had four hits, including a homer during a five-run sixth inning, and the Detroit Tigers held off the Kansas City Royals 6-3 Monday night to clinch the AL Central title. Gerald Laird added a bases-loaded double, Rick Porcello (10-12) pitched shutout ball into the sixth inning and Jhonny Peralta went deep off Bruce Chen (11-14) to help Detroit reach the postseason in consecutive years for the first time since 1934-35. After hanging over the dugout railing the entire ninth inning, the Tigers streamed onto the field and behind the pitchersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mound to celebrate their accomplishment the moment Jose Valverde got Alcides Escobar to ground out to shortstop with a runner on second for his 35th save in 40 chances. The Tigers (87-73) will have the worst record among AL division champions, which means theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll open the playoffs Saturday at home against the division winner with the second-best mark. Not that when and where matters much to Jim Ley-

landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bunch. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just glad to be back in the playoffs. After winning the division by 15 games last season, and signing Prince Fielder in the offseason, the Tigers entered spring training with lofty expectations. But they got off to a surprisingly slow start and languished below .500 in early July. Detroit was still well behind Chicago early last month. The White Sox faltered, though, and the Tigers took advantage. Now, with Cabrera making a run at baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Triple Crown since 1967 and Justin Verlander in contention for a second straight Cy Young Award, Detroit is arguably the hottest team in the majors. Right-hander Anibal Sanchez has been terrific down the stretch, Fielder and Austin Jackson are having big years at the plate, and the shoddy fielding that could have forced the Tigers to sit home in October has improved to the point that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pressing on into the postseason. The improved fielding was never more evident than in the fifth inning

Monday night, when the Royals had loaded the bases. Escobar hit a hard grounder just to the side of second base, and Omar Infante made a nice glove-flip to Peralta covering the bag to end the inning. The play allowed the Tigers to cling to a 1-0 lead, provided by Peraltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homer in the fifth inning, until they could tack on five more runs in the sixth. Cabrera broke a tie with the Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Josh Hamilton for the major league lead in homers with his 44th, a solo shot to right, and two fielding mistakes by David Lough in center led to another run. Lairdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bases-loaded double knocked Chen from the game, and effectively knocked the White Sox out of the playoffs, though they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do much to help themselves down the stretch. Chicago beat the Indians

11-0 Monday night for just its third win in 13 games. Meanwhile, the Tigers have won seven of their last eight as they surged to the division crown, including five straight against the Royals, who have dropped eight of their last nine. Porcello kept the Royals off the scoreboard until the sixth, when Alex Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homer to right field finally gave Kansas City some life. Leyland wasted no time lifting his right-hander, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done enough to end a string of six straight losses and pick up his first victory in nine starts. Cabrera had singles in the fourth, seventh and ninth in addition to his homer in the sixth, pushing his AL-leading average to .329, ahead of the Angelsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mike Trout and the Twinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Joe Mauer. Cabrera also moved his astonishing RBI total to 137, by far the best in the majors.

‘Has-beens coming off the bone pile’

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Dennis McKinney is getting used to his Kansas House district, campaigning for an open seat and telling prospective voters that he worries Washington-style politics, “where nobody listens to each other,” have come to the Statehouse. But the Greensburg Democrat is hardly a political novice. He served 16 years in the House and became its minority leader before a two-year stint as state treasurer. McKinney also is among a dozen former lawmakers who are trying to return to the Legislature in the Nov. 6 general election. “Has-beens coming off the bone pile — that’s your h e a d l i n e, ” McKinney joked during an interview. Later, he said, “If you have a good record, people think your experi- McKinney ence is valuable.” But the comeback-seekers may have a tough time. Republicans statewide expect to capitalize on voter dissatisfaction in GOPleaning Kansas with Democratic President Barack Obama and the health care law Obama championed. Half of the former legislators running again are Democrats who lost their state House seats two years ago, when conservative Gov. Sam Brownback swept

John Hanna An AP news analysis into office, Republicans won all statewide and congressional races on the ballot for the first time since 1964 and the GOP expanded its already-healthy legislative majorities. And McKinney’s 117th House district is much different than the one he last represented because of political redistricting this year. His home is in the southern end of the district, while his Republican opponent, John Ewy, Jetmore, lives 50 miles to the northwest, closer to the district’s center. Ewy hasn’t run for the Legislature previously, but his wife is seeking her fourth-term on the Hodgeman County Commission, and both are lifelong area residents. Ewy is a communications professor at Dodge City Community College, and he estimates that he’s taught 4,000 students in a career that’s spanned nearly four decades. He calculates that he’s knocked on 5,000 doors and handed out as many palm cards. “I knew that his name would be on the ballot,” Ewy said. “I have a lot of respect for him, but I know a lot of people trust in me.” MEANWHILE, in other races, former Democratic state Reps. Tom Hawk, Manhattan, and Steve Lukert, Sabetha, who lost their seats two years ago, are running for the state Senate, as is former Democratic Rep.

Mark Treaster, Pretty Prairie, unseated in 2008. Former Democratic state Reps. Julie Menghini, Pittsburg, Shirley Palmer, Fort Scott, Dale Swenson, Wichita and Milack Talia, Shawnee, are seeking to return to the House after losing their seats two years ago. Another House hopeful, Tom Sawyer, Wichita, also a former minority leader, ran for governor unsuccessfully in 1998, was chairman of the Kansas Democratic Party and served on the state Parole Board. Also running for the House again is former Rep. Dan Thimesch, Cheney, who was previously a conservative Democrat but is now running as an independent. McKinney has been out of elective politics only two years, losing the 2010 state treasurer’s race after being appointed to fill a vacancy created when Republican Lynn Jenkins won a seat in Congress. He cites a legislative impasse this year over redistricting as one reason to run, saying it showed how, at the Statehouse, “there seems to be no cooperation.” The stalemate kept legislators from approving any political redistricting plans this year and led to a federal lawsuit that had three judges setting new boundaries only days before the candidate filing deadline. McKinney said he’s also driven by his concerns that massive income tax cuts signed into law this year by Brownback will create budget problems, force cuts in education funding and lead to higher local property taxes. “Democrats on the national level have probably

If you have a good record, people think your experience is valuable. — Former Kansas House member and 2012 hopeful Dennis McKinney, D-Greensburg

Former lawmakers make another run at office

swung too far left, which makes things a little difficult for me,” he conceded. Ewy also sees property taxes as a concern but said he has faith the tax cuts signed into law will stimulate the economy as intended. A self-identified conservative Republican, he cites his oldest son, an Air Force lieutenant colonel serving in Afghanistan, as inspiration, adding, “His Dad ought to have the guts to run.” “Anything worth anything is a battle,” he said. Kansas Democratic Party Chairwoman Joan Wagnon said she and other party officials intentionally recruited former legislators to run again. “They know what they’re getting into,” she said. “Our best shot at reclaiming a lot of the seats that we lost is having seasoned campaigners who know the issues and know what the stakes are.” Clay Barker, the state Republican Party’s executive director, doesn’t fault Wagnon and fellow Democrats for the strategy. The timing of the federal judges’ decision on redistricting left both major parties scrambling to lock in candidates. “You don’t have to train them up,” Barker said of the ex-lawmakers. “If you had more time, you could recruit more fresh blood.”

Report: Midwest economy sees minimal growth OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Little or no economic growth is likely this year in most of the nine Midwest and Plains states covered by a survey of business leaders, but the booming oil business will continue to drive growth in North Dakota and Oklahoma, according to the report released Monday. The region’s overall economic index improved to a weak 50.4 in September from August’s 49.7. Any score above 50 suggests economic growth in the months ahead, while a score below 50 suggests a decline. North Dakota’s state economic index hit 61.6 in September, and Oklahoma’s registered 56.6 thanks to the oil boom. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss, who oversees the survey, said concerns about U.S. fiscal policy, the elections, inflation and Europe’s economic turmoil slowed the economy. “Supply managers, much like the entire business sector, remain very pessimistic regarding future economic conditions,” Goss said. The survey covers Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma and South Dakota. The region’s employment index remained negative, slipping to 46.1 in September from August’s 49.5. Goss said that’s the lowest jobs index since the recession

ended in 2009. “I expect the regional economy to lose both manufacturing and nonmanufacturing jobs, albeit at a slow pace, in the final quarter of 2012,” Goss said. Job gains in North Dakota, Oklahoma and Iowa will be offset by job losses in the other six states, he predicted. While strength in the energy industry is fueling growth in North Dakota and Oklahoma, Iowa is growing mostly because of strong manufacturing performance. The prices-paid index increased to 66 in September from August’s 65.2, suggesting inflation ahead. “The combination of drought conditions and the Federal Reserve’s easy or cheap money policies are driving the wholesale level higher,” Goss said. The confidence index, which measures how optimistic business leaders are about the next six months, registered 44.7 in September. That was slightly better than August’s 44.3. The inventory index grew to 49.2 in September from August’s 47.3. That suggests that the decline of inventory levels in the region is slowing. “Given the importance of exports to past regional growth, the downturn in new export orders is another factor that will contribute to a final quarter that is lackluster,” Goss said.

the room, she told me, ‘Elizabeth, what this man has done to you is ter rible. There are Elizabeth Smart no words to describe how wicked

and evil he is. He has stolen nine months of your life that you can never get back,’” Smart said. “‘The best punishment you can ever give him is to be happy, follow your dreams and do what you want.’” Smart was keynote speaker Friday at a law enforcement conference on human traf-

ficking in Wichita. Smart was 14 in 2002 when she was kidnapped at knifepoint from her Utah bedroom, raped and held for nine months. Smart was found in March 2003 after motorists spotted her walking with her captor on a suburban Salt Lake City street. Brian David Mitchell is

serving two life terms on charges of kidnapping and unlawful transportation of a minor across state lines for sex. Wanda Barzee, Mitchell’s estranged wife, is serving a 15-year prison sentence. Smart said she’s made a conscious decision to be happy and live her dreams, as a

way to avoid letting Mitchell control her anymore. “That doesn’t mean I haven’t had my ups and downs. ... We all have those days, we all have those trials, we all have those experiences,” she said. “They don’t need to define who we are. It’s what we choose to do with our lives.”

Missing infant mystery persists KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A year after 10-monthold Lisa Irwin was reported missing from her Kansas City home, police say they still want a “one-on-one” discussion with Deborah Bradley, the baby’s mother, but Bradley’s lawyer says she’s been accessible to police all along. Bradley and Jeremy Irwin reported their daughter missing from their home early on Oct. 4, 2011. Police and the FBI conducted extensive searches, but no one has been charged. A $100,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information that brings the child home, and a vigil is planned for Wednesday evening at the family’s home. The parents have said they believe someone kidnapped the baby from her crib while the father was working a late shift. The mother admitted she had been drinking with a nextdoor neighbor that night, but says she put the child in her crib early in the evening and had nothing to do with the baby’s disappearance. Kansas City police released a statement Friday recapping certain aspects of the investigation, saying they’ve worked 1,667 tips, including 500 baby sightings from around the world, The Kansas City Star reported. Police said investigators also have double-checked about 100 leads and shared their information with national experts. They said any leads provided by the family and their lawyers haven’t helped the investigation. “While communication with the family has been ongoing, police have not had the opportunity to sit down one-on-one to speak with Lisa’s mother, Deborah Bradley,” the police statement said. “As the only adult in the home at the time of the baby’s disappearance, po-

Thursday will mark the one-year anniversary of Lisa Irwin’s disappearance her home in Kansas City, Mo. A $100,000 reward remains available in the case. lice continue to have questions to which only she can provide answers.” Bradley initially gave police an hours-long interview in the days immediately following Lisa’s disappearance, but later said she felt police had become accusatory and that she didn’t want to talk to them. Her attorneys also criticized police, accusing detectives of being abusive and focusing too much on Bradley. The parents’ lawyer, Joe Picerno, told The Star that Bradley has been available to the police and has answered their questions. “The last time we sat

down, I didn’t say a word and they got to videotape it,” he said Friday. “They got to ask everything they wanted, so we are a little suspicious, as we have been all along, about why they want to isolate her.” Robert Lowery, a senior executive with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, said parents’ cooperation is vital to missing children investigations and he’d advise Irwin and Bradley “to reconsider” sitting down with police. “The final concern is finding the child and returning her home,” Lowery said.

State sues over Clutter files By ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The state is suing the family of a deceased Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent who worked on the 1959 murder case that became the subject of Truman Capote’s novel “In Cold Blood,” arguing that his relatives don’t own the case files. The lawsuit, made public Monday, asks the court to decide legal ownership of Harold Nye’s case files in the murders of prominent farmer and community leader Herbert Clutter, his wife and two children in Holcomb. The items appeared on an online auction site earlier this year. Nye’s son said Monday that the dispute centers on his father’s personal journals and copies of case documents, and noted that he has already returned crime scene photographs. The lawsuit contends that crime scene and au-

topsy photos, and other criminal investigation case materials are KBI property. “It is important for these materials to be returned to the State of Kansas for the protection of the integrity of the records and out of respect for the Clutter family,” Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a news release Monday. Schmidt has asked the court to order their return and prohibit their sale, publication or distribution. Shawnee County District Judge Larry Hendricks last week temporarily blocked their sale until the ownership issue is determined. Clutter and his wife, Bonnie Mae Fox, along with their children, 15-year-old Kenyon and 16-year-old Nancy, were brutally killed at their rural farmhouse. And the hunt for their killers — parolees Dick Hickock and Perry Smith — mesmerized the nation, drawing journalists from

across the U.S. to the small western Kansas town. When Capote’s book hit the shelves, it forever linked the small town with the crime. His book also inspired a movie of the same name. The lawsuit names as defendants the dead agent’s adult children, Ronald Nye and Terry Hurley; his widow, Joyce Nye; and auctioneer Gary McAvoy and his company Vintage Memorabilia, a Seattle-based auction company specializing in film and literature relics. Ronald Nye, of Oklahoma City, told The Associated Press on Monday that he returned the crime scene photographs, which he felt were the major concern of the victims’ family, to the state after he was contacted by a Clutter attorney after the auction was initially announced. He noted that many of the same crime scene photos are posted on the Garden City police department’s website.

Option for replacing an older engine

Hi, Tom and Ray: I have a 1993 Cadillac Coupe DeVille with a 4.9-liter V-8 engine. It has 123,000 miles on it, and I want to keep it forever. My car dealer tells me the engine cannot be rebuilt, nor can a new engine be purchased (a crate, short or long block). So, is the dealer on drugs, or what? What can I do when this engine dies? Am I stuck with going to the junkyard for a replacement engine? — Ron TOM: I don’t think so, Ron. RAY: There ARE a handful of engines that can’t be rebuilt. Rebuilding an engine involves “boring out” the cylinders.

perhaps the cylinder walls are too close together now to be drilled again. TOM: And then there are some engines that are so old that the manufacturer doesn’t make new ones anymore. That may be the case with your car. RAY: But you almost always can buy a “remanufactured” engine, which is pretty much good as new. All the parts that can be refurbished and restored get reused, and the stuff that’s worn out gets replaced with new parts. It’s not done by the manufacturer, so it’s technically not a new replacement engine. But for a used car, it’s just as good. TOM: We use a company

So your mechanic can have it sent to his shop, and then he’d install it. RAY: They’re not cheap. But you’re practically getting a brand-new engine. So expect to spend a good four grand on the engine and another thousand bucks on labor when the time comes. TOM: But if you’re nutty enough to want to keep a ‘93 Coupe DeVille forever, I’m confident you’re nutty enough to drop $5,000 on an engine for it. Good luck, Ron.

the state money.” Instead, he said, it is meant to ensure a “conflict-free system” for determining which Medicaid-funded services a person needs to avoid a move to a nursing home. After Jan. 1, the AAAs also will be responsible for helping Medicaid beneficiaries figure out which of the KanCare managed care companies might best meet

TOPEKA — Officials at the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services today signed a contract with the Southwest Kansas Area Agency on Aging, putting the organization in charge of determining which Medicaid-funded services are needed to keep the state’s low-income frail elderly, physically disabled or brain-injured out of nursing homes. Southwest Kansas AAA Executive Director Dave Deist said the agency intends to subcontract for the same services with the other 10 AAAs throughout the state. Geist is president of the Kansas Area Agencies on Aging Association. The one-year contract requires the state to pay the AAAs $3.9 million, starting on Jan. 1, a date that coincides with the scheduled start of KanCare, Gov. Sam Brownback’s plan for letting managed care companies run virtually all of the state’s Medicaid programs. The launch of KanCare remains contingent upon federal approvals. The contract with Southwest Kansas AAA includes two optional, one-year extensions. KDADS Secretary Shawn Sullivan said the contract was “not intended to save

their needs. Though the AAAs will determine the services an individual needs, the managed care companies’ case managers will decide how many hours of services will be provided, Geist said. The managed care contractor could then subcontract with a local service provider. The state’s AAAs his-

torically have done needs assessments for the frail elderly. They will continue in that role but also will be doing assessments of the physically disabled or brain damaged. Needs assessments for people who are developmentally disabled will continue to be done by the state’s 27 local Community Developmental Disability Organizations.
