Illegal labeling found on supplements GARANCE BURKE Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dozens of weight loss and immune system supplements on the market are illegally labeled and lack the recommended scientific evidence to back up their purported health claims, government investigators warn in a new review of the $20 billion supplement industry. The report, being released Wednesday by the Department of Health and Human Services’ inspector general, found that 20 percent of the 127 weight loss and immune-boosting supplements investigators purchased online and in retail stores across the country carried labels that made illegal claims to cure or treat disease. Some products went so

far as to state that the supplements could cure or prevent diabetes or cancer, or that they could help people with HIV or AIDS, which is strictly prohibited under federal law. Consumers may not just be wasting their money on pills or tablets, but they could be endangering their health if they take a supplement in place of a drug thinking it will have the same effect, the report concluded. “Consumers rely on a supplement’s claims to determine whether the product will provide a desired effect, such as weight loss or immune support,” the report said. “Supplements that make disease claims could mislead consumers into using them as replacements for prescription drugs or other treatments for medical conditions,

with potentially dangerous results.” The market for dietary supplements — which can include anything from Vitamin C tablets to capsules of Echinacea — is a huge one with hundreds of products. The inspector general’s investigation focused on one segment that officials said is booming. Federal regulations do not require the Food & Drug Administration to review supplement companies’ scientific evidence for most of their products’ purported health benefits before they hit the market. The Office of Inspector General found that in numerous cases, when companies did submit evidence to back up their health claims, it fell far short of government recommendations. One company submitted

a 30-year-old handwritten college term paper to substantiate its claim, while others included news releases, advertisements and links to Wikipedia or an online dictionary, according to the report. Overall, the review raises questions about whether the system is allowing companies to mislead consumers, investigators said, and recommended that FDA ramp up its oversight. In response, the food safety agency said it would consider asking Congress for more oversight powers to review supplement companies’ evidence proving their products’ purported health benefits. FDA agreed that the agency should expand surveillance of the market to detect spurious claims that supplements can cure or treat specific diseases.

Man arrested in city meeting SAVONBURG — Robert C. Coble, 50, was arrested by Allen County officers when he disrupted a meeting of the City Council here Monday evening. Coble was arrested for suspicion of interfering with public business and disorderly conduct. When summoned, officers were told that Coble yelled, used profanities and refused to leave the meeting, which apparently stemmed from a city order for him to clean up his property. Coble left the meeting when he was told deputies were on their way. He was arrested at his residence.

KU looks to hire faculty LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas is looking for 64 new faculty members. Provost Jeff Vitter said Tuesday it’s the first large hiring effort at the university since the early to mid2000s. The Lawrence JournalWorld reports the university plans to hire 30 new faculty members in the School of Engineering, 22 other various positions and 12 positions called “Foundation Professor.” Those 12 jobs will be for high-profile, established faculty members from other institutions. Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said the current hiring effort would return the university’s faculty to the size it was in the previous decade before hiring slowed down. And she says it would help the university improve its research stature.

Exercise aids cancer recovery By James Fell Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — If you’re being treated for breast cancer, chances are you feel like something stuck to the bottom of a shoe. “Going through cancer treatment, people become unwell; they lose muscle mass, cardiovascular fitness and their activity levels go down,” says Margie McNeely, an assistant professor in the department of physical therapy and the department of oncology at the University of Alberta. “Exercise won’t prevent the losses,” McNeely says, but it can lessen their magnitude. “Those who exercise often have less of a loss of function.” But physical activity is a hard prescription to follow. “Afterwards I just wanted to go to sleep, and that’s not who I am,” said Sara Pomish, a 52-year-old advertising strategic planner in Farmington Hills, Mich., who had surgery for breast cancer last fall. “I was just exhausted.” “It’s the kind of fatigue like a bad flu,” says Dr. Patricia Ganz, director of cancer prevention and control at the University of California at Los Angeles. For most people, the fatigue recedes on its own in the

year after treatment, but 25 percent to 30 percent of survivors will have persistent exhaustion. For those people, Ganz says, research shows exercise improves the condition. In 2007, a study in the British Medical Journal looked at 203 women recovering from breast cancer, split into two groups: one got usual care; the other got the usual care with 12 weeks of supervised exercise. The latter group not only had improved physical functioning and shoulder mobility, but it also saw a “significant effect” in terms of psychological benefits, which were largely retained at the six-month follow-up. Women who have undergone treatments for breast cancer are often concerned about when it’s safe to start exercising. Pomish opted for a lumpectomy because she didn’t want a major surgery to derail her fitness regimen. Coupled with radiation and a five-year prescription for the cancertreatment drug tamoxifen, she was feeling wiped out. Pomish’s surgeon had her hold off on exercising for three weeks postsurgery, then she was encouraged to do as much as possible within reason. “Exercise was absolutely critical in combating fatigue and loss of strength

and endurance,” Pomish said. “It’s also a wonderful antidepressant.” For 35-year-old office manager Jennifer McCrea from Calgary, Alberta, it was breast cancer that turned her into a runner. McCrea has “a strong and devastating family history of breast and ovarian cancer,” and has two very young children. “Exercise has been instrumental in my recovery. My doctors highly recommended that I stay active to thrive as a breast cancer survivor. “At the start of my recovery, I could barely move my arms from my armpits, let alone lift my children or a jug of milk,” recounts McCrea, who is also on the five-year plan for tamoxifen, which causes her fatigue. But two months after surgery, she ran her first 5K. The next spring she ran a half-marathon, and she’s still running. “I will not let this cancer take one more day from me again,” she said. McNeely strongly supports exercise as part of recovery, but also promotes caution. “If there are arm or shoulder problems, those need to be addressed before doing any type of upperbody exercises. There is no reason why they can’t start walking though,” she said. Anything more vigorous needs doctor approval.

Border patrol agent killed in Arizona JACQUES BILLEAUD Associated Pres s PAUL DAVENPORT Associated Press

NACO, Ariz. (AP) — Investigators were scouring a rugged area near the U.S.Mexico line looking for evidence in the fatal shooting of a Border Patrol agent. Nicholas Ivie and a colleague were on patrol in the desert near Naco, about 100 miles from Tucson, when gunfire broke out shortly before 2 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Border Patrol. Ivie, 30, was killed. The other agent, whose name hasn’t been released, was hospitalized after being shot in the ankle and buttocks. At a news conference Tuesday afternoon in Naco, an FBI official said the agency was still processing the crime scene and that it might take several days to complete. The FBI and the Cochise County Sheriff ’s Office, which was also investigating, declined to say whether investigators have recovered guns or bullet casings. No arrests have been made, but authorities suspected that more than one person fired at the agents. Agents and deputies were searching the area on ATVs, horseback and on foot with up to four helicopters overhead in the southern foothills of the Mule Mountains that’s considered a known smuggling area. “It’s been a long day for us but it’s been longer for no one more than a wife whose husband is not coming home. It’s been longer for two children whose father is not coming home, and that is what is going to strengthen our resolve” to find those responsible and enforce the law, said Jeffrey Self, commander of Customs and Border Protection’s Arizona joint field command. Ivie lived in Sierra Vista with his wife and their two young daughters. President Barack Obama called Ivie’s family Tuesday to offer condolences and to express his gratitude for Ivie’s “selfless service to his nation,” a White House statement said.

Obama made it clear that the administration “was doing everything it could to locate those responsible.” The last Border Patrol agent fatally shot on duty was Brian Terry, who died in a shootout with bandits near the border in December 2010. The Border Patrol station in Naco, where the two agents shot Tuesday were stationed, was recently named after Terry. Terry’s shooting was later linked to the government’s “Fast and Furious” gun-smuggling operation, which allowed people suspected of illegally buying guns for others to walk away from gun shops with weapons, rather than be arrested. Authorities intended to track the guns into Mexico. Two rifles found at the scene of Terry’s shooting were bought by a member of the gun-smuggling ring being investigated. “There’s no way to know at this point how the agent was killed, but because of Operation Fast and Furious, we’ll wonder for years if the guns used in any killing along the border were part of an ill-advised gunwalking strategy,” Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said in a statement. Authorities set up a checkpoint on a dirt road about seven miles southeast of Bisbee. Border Patrol agents at the checkpoint declined to comment and barred reporters from going further. The area near the shooting is scattered with houses, trailers and ranchettes. Mesquite trees and creosote bushes dot the landscape, with a mountain range nearby to the west. The agents who were shot were on patrol with a third agent, who was not harmed, said George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council, a union representing about 17,000 border patrol agents. Twenty-six Border Patrol agents have died in the line of duty since 2002. Bisbee-area residents expressed a mix of concern and frustration about the shooting, along with recognition that the border can be a dangerous place.

Gas price discrepancy noted Steven Winn of rural Moran confirmed Tuesday afternoon that prices for fuel are lower to either the east or north of this area. In a call to the Register, Winn said in a recent trip to Nevada, Mo., fuel prices

were $3.59 per gallon. In the communities of Garnett and Ottawa, fuel is $3.68 and $3.69 per gallon. Fuel in Iola and its surrounding area sells for $3.79 a gallon. “I also know these enterprises buy their fuel from

the same refineries as local establishments,” he said, naming Coffeyville and El Dorado refineries. The difference in price makes more of an impact on Winn than perhaps others. Winn makes his living mowing lawns.

Chief of Staff seeks dialogue on nation’s veterans Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke to 800 or more soldiers and the civilian audience at a Landon Lecture at Kansas State University Monday. Gen. Dempsey directed his speech to the soldiers who filled the upper seats and were scattered throughout the rest of McCain Auditorium and included the ROTC of the university as well as large contingents from Fort Riley and Fort Leavenworth. While the nominal subject was the relationship between the nation and its veterans, Dempsey dwelt at length on the qualities that combat soldiers possess and the war environment to which they must adapt. A soldier must have courage, he said, and illustrated by telling of a man whose job it was to drop from Blackhawk helicopters suspended by a thin steel cable to rescue people in trouble on the ground. The soldier he had interviewed had picked up 12 soldiers, one by one, who were pinned down by the enemy on a cliff. He and they were under fire throughout the mission. His cable was hit twice by machine gun bullets and still held him. Four of the rescued soldiers died in his arms from wounds. That, Gen. Dempsey said, showed courage. He continued telling his military audience — and the rest of us — the qualities of character men and women in the military must possess, illustrating each attribute with another specific example drawn from men and women he knew or had knowledge of and went from there to say each generation of Americans defines its veterans. It is up to today’s Americans

to define the veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as they return to civilian life, he said. “We should have a national dialogue on how best to accomplish this,” he said. He said soldiers sometimes find that returning to the United States and civilian life can be more difficult than war, itself. In combat, he pointed out, the mission is clear. Back home, that one clear mission is traded for the need to make decisions without number. The soldier, he said, lives at “Mach 4” speed and can find it difficult to slow down and adjust to a much less ordered life. The nation, he said, needs to work with the veterans as they come back from combat experience. “This isn’t something the nation should do for veterans,” he emphasized, “it should be done for the nation.” Touching other topics, Gen. Dempsey said the level of violence around the world had dropped significantly. The chances of war between major nations has never been lower in our lifetimes, he said. But the chances of violent acts by individual groups of terrorists occurring have increased exponentially, he added. Today’s military, he said, is organized in massive units, which can oppose the forces of a major nation, but can be devolved into smaller units to fight terrorism, or be aggregated quickly to fight another major war should that be necessary. He also remarked the military, along with the rest of the federal government, will adjust to tighter budgets made inevitable by the deficit and massive national debt. — Emerson Lynn, jr.

“That’s not a ‘We’re trying to shake down a couple people for a traffic violation sort of operation.’ That’s a ‘We are specifically trying to kill the people in this vehicle’. This is not a ‘Whoops, we got the wrong people.’” — Senior U.S. offi-

Foreigners fascinated by US race By NICHOLAS WOOD

OXFORD, England — In recent months I’ve taken groups of internationally curious people to crisis spots as far flung as North Korea, Bosnia and Greece. The aim of these trips is to give people direct access to some of the hottest spots on the globe today. At the end of this month, we’ll fly to Ohio. Ohio may seem like the odd one out on any list of crisis spots. However, most tour participants come from outside the United States and the Buckeye State is an obvious choice for outsiders who want a front-row seat on the American presidential election. After all, it is the bellwether state that has backed the presidential winner every election since 1964. In the last week running up to the vote we will meet with farmers, church groups, unions and autoworkers across Ohio, trying to understand their concerns and motivations. The state’s complex demography — Rust Belt and rural, white and black, labor and business — provides far better insight into what’s motivating American voters than Washington ever could. We foreigners care about your elections for the obvious reason that you have a large say in how the world is run. Indeed, some of us would gladly cast a vote in America, if we could. A recent poll suggested most Europeans would pick Obama. It is certainly true to say, I think, that there is a natural bias in favor of the incumbent. We see him flying around the world looking presidential and we do not have to consider the finer details of “Obamacare” or high unemployment. In much the same way, Americans admired Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair long

We foreigners care about your elections for the obvious reason that you have a large say in how the world is run. Indeed, some of us would gladly cast a vote in America, if we could. after their sell-by date in Britain. Ohio’s appeal goes well beyond the question of which candidate will win the White House. For me the bigger question in U.S. politics at the moment is to try and understand the enormous partisan divide that has emerged in American politics. It is a shocking spectacle to see the hostility of politicians toward one another in Congress, the lack of cooperation on legislation that has brought the world’s superpower close to default on its enormous debt. And that observation comes from a country that is home to prime minister’s question time in the House of Commons, which can be more raucous than any congressional debate. It is as though America is tearing itself apart ideologically, oblivious to the world outside.  Ohio, it seems, has surprises up its sleeve and may challenge my notion of the great partisan divide. Trailing by as much as 10 points in the Ohio polls, Mitt Romney is being accused of throwing away an election that, with the aid of an abysmal economy, should be his. It seems Obama’s lead is so significant that some Ohio commentators suggest that the problem is not entirely due to Romney’s character or handling of the election. They point to a more worrying trend for the GOP.  Commentators such as Jack Torry at the Columbus Dispatch

suggest the Republicans’ political strategy of appealing to their tea party electoral base is alienating voters. This was borne out in Ohio last November when voters emphatically rejected newly elected Republican Gov. John Kasich’s proposals to restrict collective bargaining rights for Ohio’s government workers. “Could it be that the Republicans have become too conservative for the majority of Americans?” Torry wrote recently.  Various columnists have suggested that Americans of a classical conservative bent would prefer a party that promotes harmony among the states, businesses and individuals, but also limits government’s role as much as possible. Dare I say it? Maybe they would prefer a more European brand of conservatism. As an outsider that seems more appealing and familiar to me than the fractious drive of tea party-propelled politics.  But I don’t know if that’s true for American voters and neither do any of the others on our tour of Ohio. Perhaps America is not as divided as we outsiders perceive. We want to find out for ourselves. And, as October comes to end, we will — in a proud and diverse Mideast state that already has produced seven presidents and could well decide who the 45th one will be.

and would have to do so before they paid any local, state or federal taxes. The pattern of reductions in state commitment to higher education shows no sign of reversing and has prompted universities to shift the financial burden onto students. That combined with the largely stagnant economy only further drives the debt burden. In recent days, those involved in jobs creation have tried to make the argument that spending on higher education facilitates economic growth. To whatever extent that is true — and we’re not taking issue with it — the shift away from state responsibility is substantially a political reality, and is unlikely to be reversed any time soon. The logical recourse for those facing increasing debt, including student debt, is eventually to pull back from spending. Indeed, Americans have cut back on several other types of borrowing such as credit card use, with average household indebtedness falling from $105,297 in 2007 to $100,720 in 2010.

That does not appear to be happening with education-related debt, however, presumably because individuals and families have concluded that higher education possesses a value transcending price. The average outstanding college debt increased from $23,349 in 2007 to $26,682 in 2010. But insensitivity to education costs cannot be presumed. Data released just Thursday by the Kansas Board of Regents raises the question of whether the state’s system may have already reached its point of sensitivity. The Regents reported that enrollment was down 152 students at the public universities. Fortunately for Manhattan, K-State was an exception to the trend, reporting the largest increase among the state institutions, up 515 students. But contrast the movement at the seven universities with a 13.4 percent increase at the state’s technical schools and it becomes fair to ask whether some families are re-evaluating the usefulness of a four-year college degree if getting that degree forces them into debt.

Views from other Kansas editors The Hutchinson News

(Mike O’Neal and the Kansas Chamber of Commerce)

The Kansas Chamber of Commerce seems like a good fit for House Speaker Mike O’Neal’s post-Legislature life. His first order of business as president and CEO should be to change the name of the organization. O’Neal, you see, won’t be running a state version of your local chamber of commerce. That’s not what the Kansas “chamber” is at all anymore. It is a political activist group, and it isn’t one that speaks for all of business. O’Neal is retiring from 28 years in the Kansas House, the last four as speaker. That is an outstanding span of service, one that could only be amassed by someone who loves state government. And O’Neal is an admitted policy wonk, so he will be well-suited for a move from Hutchinson to Topeka year-round, where he will be able to stay involved in legislative work. Based on the state chamber’s agenda in recent years, O’Neal will have a visible presence at the Statehouse. The organization has

emerged as something much different than an umbrella group or state association for local chambers of commerce. In fact, the state chamber has lost much support from local chambers of commerce in the past two years because of its narrow policy positions. And the state chamber does not enjoy broad membership of the business community like local chambers do. Tax reduction has been the obsession of the state chamber, which has been a strong ally for Gov. Sam Brownback in this crusade. While lower taxes are good for business, so is state investment in education and transportation. The chamber’s abandonment of those priorities is what got it crosswise with local chambers. And with the help of six-figure financial support from Koch Industries of Wichita, for one, the state chamber’s political action committee has become a highprofile player in state elections — not just to elect Republicans to the Legislature but in this past primary election cycle to promote

conservative Republicans over moderates. Calling itself the Kansas “chamber of commerce” is highly misleading. The organization should change its name to reflect its real mission and activities. The Manhattan Mercury

(Price sensitivity and higher education)

A Pew Research Center study has found that 19 percent of U.S. households are now carrying student debt, roughly twice as many as were doing so a little more than two decades ago when the parents of today’s students were in school. Just since 2007, the number of families with higher education-related debt has climbed by 15 percent. The drivers of this debt phenomenon are both diverse and obvious. For starters, a year at a typical state university such as K-State costs more than $4,000 counting just tuition and fees. The median household income in Riley County in 2010 was around $39,000, meaning that about half of all local families who want to avoid college debt would essentially have to tithe to that college,

Halloween is four weeks from today, but it’s none too soon for parents to start thinking about how to keep their children safe when they go about neighborhoods trick-ortreating. With a couple of clicks of a mouse, parents can find where registered sex offenders, habitual violators and those who have been convicted of drug

crimes live in Allen County, said Sheriff Tom Williams. “Just look on our website (www.allencosheriff. org) and click on the ‘offender watch’ box,” Williams said. Names and addresses of offenders pop up. The sheriff noted other common-sense things parents, grandparents or other adults who look after children might do to ensure a fun and safe Hal-

loween holiday. Going about in daylight hours is better, and if a child is out at dusk or when night falls, a good practice is to wear a lightcolored costume, have on some reflective material and to carry a flashlight. Commercially wrapped candy treats are preferred and when something homemade is given, recipients’ parents or guardians should be leery enough to inspect the offering.

Popcorn balls, apples and homemade candies easily can be tampered with. Williams encouraged children to be careful when crossing streets and not to dart from a car when adults accompanying them stop in front of a friend’s or relative’s home. “We don’t want to take the fun out of Halloween,” Williams said, “and it doesn’t take any longer to give full consideration to safety.”

front of a panel of judges, including high school jazz band members. The auditions were highly competitive, the students said, with scores of hopefuls left on the sidelines. “It was a good experience,” Kloepfer said. “The students felt pressure for the first time as musicians” — an experience much like what they’ll face at various band competitions throughout middle school and high school. Wednesday’s session featured work on the tune “Please Don’t Climb the Iguana,” by Dean Sorenson. Kloepfer worked with the students collectively — and frequently on an

individual basis — as they repeated a number of riffs from the song until they developed a powerfully harmonic tune. The solos are the fun part, opined Aaron Terhune (saxophone) because of the ability to improvise. While his regular band practices are beneficial, “jazz band is even better,” added fellow saxophonist Braden Plumlee. “It’s a lot of fun.” Kloepfer said the students have shown steady improvement since practices began shortly after the start of the school year. The improvements are noticeable, even on a daily basis. One such instance stands out, from the introduction of “Please Don’t Climb The Iguana.”

H Biblesta Continued from A1

Action Team has refurbished the floor and ceiling of the pavilion, making the area more accessible for “Biblesta After Dark” — a program meant to cater to teens and young adults. Fisher said she expects festival attendance to exceed past years, with 13 floats participating in the parade. “The last few years have been huge, probably 3,000 to 5,000 people,” Fisher said. “This year, the square will be packed from all sides.” Carollyn Burnett, a sixthyear committee member, said cooperation from the city of Humboldt and generous donations from local organizations and businesses have been key to the success of Biblesta in the past. The festival is run for free by local churches and depends heavily on volunteer support. “Local businesses and people donate to support Biblesta,” Burnett said. “We try to be good stewards of the money we are given.” She said entertainment for this year will range from contemporary Christian bands and church choirs to school marching bands and a magician. Fisher said Humboldt sees visitors from across several counties for the first Saturday of October, as well as people from neighboring states. The town benefits from the increased traffic, bringing revenue to local shops and restaurants. “Anytime you honor God, you honor the place,” Fisher said. “Humboldt is truly blessed.” According to Burnett, Biblesta is the only Biblethemed parade in the United States. However, Burnett

Anytime you honor God, you honor the place. Humboldt is truly blessed. — Shirley Fisher, head of the Biblesta committee

“It’s really a team atmosphere,” Johnson said. “Anytime you spread the gospel, it brings the community together.” Fisher said volunteers have been working on floats through September. The volunteers will begin to assemble their floats at 10 a.m. Saturday, the parade begins at 1:30 p.m. The Biblesta festival was started in 1958 by Dr. Arthur Carlson with the goal to provide a family-friendly celebration that would include the entire community.

— Band director Matt Kloepfer

As the students belted out the intro, Kloepfer stopped the session frequently until the students found the proper technique for the more complicated chords. “There’s quite a bit of improvement just from when you started today,” Kloepfer told the students. Kloepfer plans to bring in visiting instructors periodically to work with the students. “There are a lot of clinicians excited about getting

His family farm has nature trails and buffers to enhance wildlife. This is the first year the course has been offered and Wilson said two things that surprised him were “the knowledge some of the kids exhibit prior to the course and their excitement.” Normally a hunter safety course is a 20-hour program. Wilson says spreading the course out over a nine-week period gives the instructors a chance to break down the chapters and spend more time teaching the students the importance of safety.

said while churches are the major influence for the parade and programs, many other aspects of the community are involved as well. The Rotary Club, school bands, local businesses and the city of Humboldt are all involved in the logistics of running the event. She said the city provides security during the events, as well as assistance with traffic control for the parade. Joe Johnson, assistant parade manager, said the committee of eight has been working since early January.

Salmon linked to salmonella THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Smoked salmon tainted with salmonella bacteria has sickened hundreds of people in the Netherlands, sparking major recalls there and in the U.S., Dutch authorities said. U.S. health authorities say they also are investigating possible effects from the salmon. The bacteria is named after Daniel E. Salmon, an American veterinary surgeon. The Netherlands’ National Institute for Public Health and the Environment said the salmon has been traced to the Dutch company Foppen, which sells fish to many major Dutch supermarkets and to stores around the world, including the United States. The institute said in a statement that around 200 people — and likely more — in the Netherlands and more than 100 people in the United States have been sickened by a strain of the bacteria called Salmonella Thompson. Harald Wychgel, a spokesman for the Dutch public health institute, said the institute got its information on Americans becoming ill from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, a representative for the CDC said the agency was investigating and had not confirmed any illnesses. Although other health agencies have access to its database of salmonella cases, the CDC said the Dutch agency is not among them. The CDC has a specific procedure for confirming an outbreak is from a specific

cause, including interviews with those who become ill. Costco Wholesale Corp., which sold the salmon in the U.S., said it had no reports of illness. Foppen also estimated the number of infections was higher. Company spokesman Bart de Vries said that since

the company set up a public information phone line two days ago, some 1,400 people had called and around 350 of the callers “reported symptoms consistent with a salmonella infection.� Those infected by the salmonella bacteria can suffer symptoms including fever, vomiting and diarrhea.

De Vries said that in the United States the company sells only to wholesaler Costco and that Costco would deal with any U.S. recall. It was not clear how much contaminated fish had been sold in America; a Costco representative did not immediately have that information either.

Fillies come up short in league By JOCELYN SHEETS

Register/Jocelyn Sheets

Iola High’s Addie Haar, left, and Kyra Moore (11) are at the net for the Fillies in a home match earlier this season. Haar gets the tip over the net. The Fillies fell in Pioneer League play on Tuesday against host Wellsville and Osawatomie.

WELLSVILLE — Iola High’s Fillies have yet to solve play in Pioneer League volleyball matches. After splitting their only home league contests on Sept. 18, the Fillies have been on the road and lost four straight. On Tuesday, the Fillies were at Wellsville and came up empty. They lost to Osawatomie 25-16, 2511 then dropped a 25-14, 25-13 decision to Wellsville. Iola is 1-5 in Pioneer play and 4-19 overall. The Fillies travel to Coffeyville Thursday for nonleague matches with Coffeyville and Labette County. The Fillies conclude Pioneer League action next Tuesday back at Wellsville. They will face Central Heights and Wellsville. Iola’s lone win in league play was over Central Heights. The Fillies don’t play at home again this season. Against Osawatomie, Emery Driskel and Kyra Moore each had two kills for the Fillies. Addie Haar had one kill and one block at the net while Breanna Stout

and Emma Piazza each had one kill. Piazza was credited with two set assists and Moore had one assist. Hannah Endicott led the team with four digs. In the Wellsville match, Driskel and Haar each recorded two kills and one solo block. Moore and Piazza had three set assists apiece. Katie Thompson had a solo block. Endicott had four digs while Moore and Stout had two digs each. Emma Sigg had a dig. Iola’s junior varsity lost 25-17, 25-17 to Osawatomie and 25-17, 2521 to Wellsville. Halie Cleaver had 18 digs for the two matches. Shelby Smith had four kills and five blocks. Paige Miller and Torrie Lewis each delivered five kills. Karlie Lower had 11 set assists and four service aces. Cassie Delich put up 15 set assists, had one block and one service ace. Katie Shields served four aces. Allie Cleaver had two ace serves and one kill. The Register did not have a report on the freshman matches at Osawatomie by today’s deadline.

Royals rally past AL Central champion Tigers KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jeremy Guthrie put together another excellent start that might well land him a lucrative contract to remain in Kansas City. Alcides Escobar had another stellar night at shortstop. Meaningless game? Not for these Royals. Guthrie won his fifth straight decision to finish off his season, and Escobar homered and drove in two runs — and also made a couple of nifty plays on defense — in a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers, who had clinched the AL Central title the previous night. Miguel Cabrera had two hits and drove in two runs for Detroit before he was lifted in the fifth inning by manager Jim Leyland. With one game remaining, Cabrera leads the American League in batting (.331), home runs (44) and RBIs (139), putting him on the brink of the Triple Crown. The feat hasn’t been accomplished since Boston’s Carl Yastr-

zemski in 1967. Leyland said he’s not sure whether he’ll put Cabrera into his lineup for the regular-season finale, but he also said the slugging third baseman will play if he wants. “I’ve not made the decision, but I will. I’m going to think about it tonight. I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do,” Leyland said. “If he wants to play, then he’ll play.” Cabrera seemed noncommittal when pressed on the topic. “You know, he writes the lineup and I do what he wants,” Cabrera said. “I play ball. He’s the manager, he’s the boss. So whatever he wants to do, we’re going to do. I play for the manager.” Jeff Francoeur homered for Kansas City on Tuesday night, and Salvador Perez had the goahead RBI in the fifth inning. Meanwhile, Guthrie (5-3) lasted six innings to improve to 5-0 with six no-decisions in his final 11 starts, the Royals winning 10 of

them. “That’s what you see from veteran pitchers. They don’t get flustered,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “They continue to pitch to their game plan. They know not to let the game speed up on you. You execute your pitches and never give in to the hitter.” Guthrie has indicated that he’d like to remain in Kansas City after this season, but the two sides would have to work out a new deal. “Obviously, the people that will do the negotiations will handle it,” Guthrie said. “Taking care of See ROYALS | B2

Wildcats, Eagles clash on gridiron By JOCELYN SHEETS

Marmaton Valley High’s Wildcats are undefeated through five games of the nine-game regular season. They opened Kansas E i g h t Man Division I, District 2 play with a largemargin win last week. The Wildcats host longtime Three Rivers League archrival Uniontown High’s Eagles this week. It has been awhile since these two schools have met on the football field. Marmaton Valley has been playing eight-man football for quite a few years. Uniontown is in its first-ever season as an eight-man football team. So on Friday — it’s homecoming for the Wildcats — riding on the outcome are several things. It is a Three Rivers League contest and an Eight-Man I, District 2 contest. Marmaton Valley is 5-0 overall, 2-0 in TRL play and 1-0 in district. Uniontown is 1-3, 0-3 in league and 0-1 in district. The Wildcats are ranked among the top 10 teams in the Kansas Eight-Man I division by Topeka

Capital-Journal and Wichita Eagle. K-Preps has Marmaton Valley at No. 5 but there are eight 5-0 teams in the state in the

week. The battle for one of the two district playoff spots will be on the line against Chetopa. In all area high school football districts, the top teams

division. St. Paul is in the same district as Marmaton Valley and Uniontown along with winless Yates Center. St. Paul is 4-0 overall and 3-0 in TRL play plus 1-0 in district action. Marmaton Valley plays at St. Paul on Oct. 25 to conclude the regular season. Crest High’s Lancers had a tough one last Friday going up against fourth-ranked Waverly (5-0) in an Eight-Man II, District 3 opener. The Lancers are 2-3 overall and should be able to even their district mark this week at Elk Valley (0-4). Southern Coffey County High’s Titans notched their first win of the season last week and it came in Eight-Man, District 3 play. The Titans go to Chetopa (3-2) Friday in district action. The Lancers will be home next

advance into Kansas postseason play. For the area eightman and 11-man teams, postseason begins Oct. 30. IOLA HIGH’S Mustangs and Humboldt High’s Cubs have to worry about Friday’s respective league games before district play begins for the two area 11-man football teams. The Mustangs travel to Wellsville Friday. With a win over the Eagles, the Mustangs can clinch a share of the Pioneer League championship. Going into the game the Mustangs are undefeated in three league contest with two remaining. Wellsville and Prairie View are both 2-1 in league. Iola defeated Prairie View two weeks ago. Anderson County plays Iola in the final week of regular season. It

will be a Pioneer League game and a Kansas Class 4A, District 6

contest. Also in Class 4A, District 6 are Fort Scott (5-0) and Chanute (23) out of the Southeast Kansas League. Humboldt goes to Caney Friday for a Tri-Valley League showdown with Caney Valley High’s Bullpups. Caney Valley and Neodesha are both 3-0 in league play while the Cubs are 1-1. Three of the Cubs’ TVL games will be Kansas Class 3A, District 6 games to conclude the season. Humboldt, Caney Valley and Neodesha are all 4-1 overall. The Cubs have Burlington (2-3), Eureka (0-5) and Fredonia (0-5) in their district.

your family comes first, and then you want the right situation as a player. We’ll figure out the best situation for both. There are great teammates here and it’s a great city. Any pitcher would be happy here.� Doug Fister (10-10) certainly wasn’t happy, though. He allowed three runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings for Detroit, scuffling along in his final tune-up before the playoffs. “I pitched to contact and I got the contact, just not the contact I wanted,� Fister said. “I have some things to work out in the bullpen in the next few days.� The Tigers will open the postseason on Saturday at home. “I’m not worried about him,� Leyland said. “He’s fine.� Max Scherzer is another issue. The right-hander twisted his right ankle in the on-field victory celebration the previous night, knocking him out of his scheduled start Wednesday. Scherzer, who is 16-7 with a 3.82 ERA, was supposed to pitch five innings to test his sore right shoulder. Luis Marte will start in Scherzer’s place, and Leyland will rely on a hodgepodge of relief pitchers to get through the game, the outcome of which is ultimately meaningless.

While Cabrera insisted on playing Tuesday night, Leyland gave the night off to several other regulars. Quintin Berry started in center field, Don Kelly in left field, Ramon Santiago at second base and Danny Worth at shortstop. Several substitutions were made in the later innings. The cobbled-together lineup played a part in the outcome, too. Escobar homered in the first inning for Kansas City, but the Tigers still led 2-1 on the strength of Cabrera’s timely single when the fifth inning rolled around. Irving Falu, Jarrod Dyson and Escobar strung together consecutive singles off Fister to tie the game. Alex Gordon popped out to shortstop, and Perez hit a hard grounder toward second base that should have resulted in an inning-ending double play. Santiago fielded the ball and the Tigers got the first out, but Worth couldn’t get the relay over to first base cleanly, which allowed Dyson to score the go-ahead run. Francoeur added a homer in the eighth, and the Kansas City bullpen shut out the Tigers the final three innings. Greg Holland handled the ninth for his 16h save. “It was actually a good game,� Leyland said. “It was kind of fun.�

Report: Assessment results skewed By HEATHER HOLLINGSWORTH Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas education officials blamed a calculation error Monday for overreporting the amount the achievement gap between poor and more affluent students and minority and nonminority students grew on this year’s state tests. The Kansas Department of Education said in a news release that the issue was with how the state dealt with three districts that don’t give their eighthgrade and high school students the standard state exam. The McPherson, Kansas City, Kan., and Clifton-Clyde districts use the ACT college entrance exam and another test designed for younger students called ACT EXPLORE after receiving a waiver from the federal No Child Left Behind education law. That waiver is different from a statewide waiver Kansas

received over the summer. Scores on the alternative exams were converted so they could be used when calculating statewide results. The problem is older students from the three districts were counted twice, throwing off the statewide scores. That was particularly problematic because Kansas City, Kan., which has a large number of poor and minority students, saw its scores drop dramatically with the new, more difficult test. State data show the district went from having 72.4 percent of its 11thgraders at or above standard in reading in 2011 to just 17.9 percent in 2012. “KCK represents a significant portion of several of the subgroups — African-Americans, Hispanics, probably special education,” said Tom Foster, Kansas State Department of Education director for career standards and assessment services. “There are a lot of students in KCK. It’s

a big district. So when they used ACT assessments, their scores took a dip and that made the state averages do the same.” District spokesman David Smith said a drop in test scores was anticipated because the ACT test is more rigorous than the state exam. “Districts across the state had kids who were proficient on the state exam and had to take remedial courses in colleges,” he said of the reason for the change. Still, when the miscalculated statewide scores were released last month, the drops they showed generated concerns that cuts to the state education budget is hurting students’ performance. The state has updated statewide information to reflect results only for students who took stateadministered assessments. The eighth-grade and high school results from the three districts with waivers

were calculated separately and apart from the statewide results. The new numbers show the gap between students receiving government subsidized meals and those who aren’t grew less. Overall scores didn’t drop as much either. Originally, for instance, the reading performance gap between black and white students was reported to have grown by 7.5 percentage points. Recalculated, it actually grew by 3.1 percentage points. The state remains concerned, though. A task force formed in the wake of the initial score release to look at the achievement gap will remain in effect, and its members are expected to make recommendations to the Kansas Board of Education in the spring. The state board also will consider in October whether to combine the scores of students taking the ACT tests with those taking the state exam.

Ed spending task force loaded with CPAs TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Democratic leaders on Tuesday questioned Gov. Sam Brownback’s appointments to a task force charged with finding efficiencies in Kansas schools, noting he didn’t name a single teacher or administrator to the panel. The Republican governor named task force members last week, saying he was concerned that schools aren’t spending enough money on classroom instruction. Several accountants, a State Board of Education member and the governor’s budget director were appointed to the panel. Democrats said Tuesday at a Statehouse news conference that it would have been proper to include at least one teacher or administrator to get input from people who work inside schools. “All you have to do is look at the members who have been appointed to this task force to question its real purpose,” said House Minority Leader Paul Davis, of Lawrence. “It seems to me that if you want to study

“ All you have to do is look at the members who

have been appointed to this task force to question its real purpose. It seems to me that if you want to study education, you should probably consult with educators. — Rep. Paul Davis, D-Lawrence

education, you should probably consult with educators.” Sherriene Jones-Sontag, a spokeswoman for Brownback, told the Lawrence Journal-World the governor wanted a task force with expertise in finance and spending. Brownback’s administration maintains that school districts aren’t spending 65 percent of state aid on classroom instruction as required by law. Democrats counter that the requirement is a goal, not a law. Not true, said Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, of Topeka, citing figures provided to Democrats that indicate districts were hitting the 65 percent target.

Democrats continue to argue that public schools will face the brunt of cuts in state spending as Kansas implements a package of income tax cuts starting in January. Projections from the Legislative Research Department suggest that the state will take in some $2.5 billion less in taxes over the next several years. Brownback’s budget director Steve Anderson asked state agencies, including public schools and higher education, to prepare budget requests that showed how they would cut 10 percent from current budgets if necessary next year. The governor said last week when he announced the task force that it would

seek efficiencies by “identifying best practices for cutting administration cost, reducing overhead and providing a greater percentage of state resources to support education.” “Providing a quality education to the children of Kansas is one of the core functions of state government and will remain a top funding priority for my administration,” Brownback said. Hensley said public schools account for 62 percent of the 2013 state budget, while the 32 Kansas Board of Regents schools make up another 12 percent. He said reductions in state revenues caused by the tax cuts could mean an estimated reduction of $170.3 million for public schools and $33 million for higher education in the next budget year, if the 10 percent cuts are applied proportionately to all areas of government. “Unless Republicans plan on raising taxes, Legislative Research has presented a very likely scenario,” Hensley said.

KU law school enrollment up 19 percent LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The University of Kansas School of Law recorded a 19 percent increase in applications for 2012, despite a decline in law school applications elsewhere in the country. The school announced Monday that it received 973 applications in 2012, a rebound after applications dropped to 819 in 2011 from 1,120 a year earlier, The Lawrence Journal-World reported. Nationwide, law school applications fell by

13.7 percent in 2012, the Law School Admission Council said. Kansas’ popularity can be attributed in part to the fact it is a public school, Kansas Law Dean Stephen Mazza said. “I think they’re starting to make the realization that it just makes more sense to go to a high-quality public school as opposed to paying twice as much to go to a private school, or sometimes three times as much,” Mazza said.

Teen pleads guilty in church burglaries

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A Hutchinson teenager has pleaded guilty to a spate of burglaries and thefts around the city, including several break-ins at churches. The Hutchinson News reports 16-year-old Joshua Hickey pleaded guilty Tuesday to 38 charges, including 19 felonies. He’ll be sentenced Nov. 16. Hickey was certified for

Kansas was one of only 11 of 198 law schools accredited by the American Bar Association that had a double-digit percentage increase in applications, the council told the university. The council, which administers the Law School Admission Test, would not confirm that figure or release specific application numbers to the newspaper. The number of students from out of state increased substantially in 2012 — perhaps boosted by an open

trial as an adult after he and three older co-defendants were arrested Aug. 6. Hickey was charged with breaking into several Hutchinson churches and from April 1 to July 23, stealing and cash. He was also accused of burglarizing or stealing from stores and Hutchinson High School.

The school is going to launch a campaign, called “Change the Conversation,” to encourage yet more law school applications. It will show potential applicants that a law degree can also lead to alternative careers in government, corporations and nonprofit groups, Mazza said.

The Kansas attorney general’s new chief spokesman is a former state Board of Regents official who also previously served as a top aide to former Gov. Bill Graves. Don Brown joined Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office this week. He replaces Jeff Wagaman, who was promoted to lead the office’s new Division of Crime Victims Compensation. Brown was Graves’ chief spokesman from November 1999 to February 2002.

Wave of attacks kills 31 in Syria By ALBERT AJI and ZEINA KARAM Associated Press

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Three suicide bombers detonated their explosivespacked cars near an officers’ club in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo today, killing at least 31 people and causing massive destruction that trapped scores under the rubble, Syrian state media and activists said. The blasts went off at a main square in a government-controlled district of the city, while a fourth explosion detonated a few hundred yards away near the Chamber of Commerce, they said. Aleppo, Syria’s commercial hub and largest city, has seen intensified fighting between regime forces and rebels trying to oust President Bashar Assad, especially after the fighters launched a new offensive last week. But it has not been the target of frequent suicide attacks, and today’s stunning wave of explosions caused panic and fear among residents. State-run news agency SANA said the bombings targeted Saadallah al-Jabri square, describing them as the work of “terrorists,” and said at least 31 people were killed and dozens of others were wounded. Authorities refer to rebels fighting to topple Assad as terrorists and armed gangs. A state-run channel, Ikhbariya, showed footage of massive damage around the square, which also houses a famous hotel. One building appeared leveled to the ground. The facade of another was heavily damaged. The TV showed footage

of several bodies, including one being pulled from the rubble of a collapsed building. “It was like a series of earthquakes,” said a shaken resident who declined to be identified for fear of reprisals. “It was terrifying, terrifying.” He said the officers’ club and the hotel were almost completely destroyed. His account could not be immediately verified, although the TV footage showed at least one building reduced to rubble. A Syrian government official said the number of deaths would likely increase because many of the wounded were in critical condition. Speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity in line with government regulations, he said soldiers killed two more would-be suicide bombers at the scene, before they could detonate their explosives. Aleppo-based activist Mohammad Saeed said the explosions went off minutes apart at one of the city’s main squares. He said the blasts appear to have been caused by car bombs and were followed by clashes and heavy gunfire. “The area is heavily fortified by security and the presence of shabiha,” he said, referring to pro-regime gunmen. “It makes you wonder how car bombs could reach there,” he added. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on a network of activists on the ground, reported dozens of casualties from the blasts, most of them members of regime forces.

Report: US car targeted in shooting By E. EDUARDO CASTILLO Associated Press

MEXICO CITY (AP) — A senior U.S. official says there is strong circumstantial evidence that Mexican federal police who fired on a U.S. Embassy vehicle, wounding two CIA officers, were working for organized crime in a targeted assassination attempt. Meanwhile, a Mexican official with knowledge of the case confirmed on Tuesday that prosecutors are investigating whether the Beltran Leyva Cartel was behind the Aug. 24 ambush. The Mexican official said that is among several lines of investigation into the shooting of an armored SUV that was clearly marked with diplomatic license plates on a rural road near Cuernavaca south of Mexico City. Federal police, at times battered by allegations of infiltration and corruption by drug cartels, have said the shooting was a case of mistaken identity as officers were looking into the kidnapping of

“ That’s not a ‘We’re trying to shake down a

couple people for a traffic violation sort of operation.’ That’s a ‘We are specifically trying to kill the people in this vehicle.’ This is not a ‘Whoops, we got the wrong people.’ — Senior U.S. official investigating car shooting at American Embassy in Mexico

a government employee in that area. “That’s not a ‘We’re trying to shake down a couple people for a traffic violation sort of operation.’ That’s a ‘We are specifically trying to kill the people in this vehicle’,” a U.S. official familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press. “This is not a ‘Whoops, we got the wrong people.’ “ Photos of the gray Toyota SUV, a model known to be used by Drug Enforcement Administration agents and other U.S. Embassy employees working in Mexico, showed it riddled with heavy gunfire. The U.S. Embassy called the attack an “ambush.”


When asked by the AP if the Mexican federal police officers involved in the shooting were tied to organized crime, the U.S. official said, “The circumstantial evidence is pretty damn strong.” Both the U.S. and Mexican officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the diplomatic issue. Federal police on Tuesday maintained the position that their agents fired on the vehicle by mistake, thinking it belonged to a band of kidnappers they were pursuing, according to a spokesman who was not authorized to speak on the record.

Strike paralyzes Belgian commuters BRUSSELS (AP) — A 24hour strike by Belgian rail workers today paralyzed train traffic throughout Belgium and the international high-speed service to London and Paris. The strike, which started late Tuesday, reached its peak during this morning’s rush hour when tens of thousands of commut-

ers had to take to trafficchoked highways to get into the capital or work. Many workers had taken precautions and even though long traffic jams were reported early today, they were not as bad as initially feared. Both Thalys and Eurostar canceled services to the Belgian capital.

“In Brussels, the strike is a success, around 80-90 percent of the people are on strike,” said Philippe Peers of the socialist CGSP trade union. “Many of the stewards as well are on strike, so I can tell that there will be not a single train in Brussels.” Rail service was expected to resume late today.

Blood sugar higher in morning Dear Dr. Donohue: I have type 2 diabetes and check my blood sugar every morning before breakfast. It’s usually in the 125 mg/dl (6.9 mmol/L) to 150 (8.3) range. When I have my blood sugar checked at the lab, they tell me to fast before taking the test. My A1C is in the 6.2 to 6.5 range. My doctors are happy with these numbers.

a common-sense answer? – P.V. Answer: It’s not easy explaining why blood sugar rises when you have nothing to eat during sleep. I don’t mean to offend you, but do you take a late-evening snack? It can take four hours for some food to exit the stomach. The carbohydrates taken from the snack might not raise blood sugar until four hours after you’ve eaten it.

If you take the immediate release, the medicine might be long gone before you waken the next day. The same goes for glyburide. It lasts from 12 to 24 hours. But if you are a person in whom it lasts on the shorter side of that span, it, too, may have been metabolized long before you wake in the morning.

and evenings, and some weekends when the child’s father does not have him. If I voice any complaint, I am cast as the jealous malcontent. I like the child but do not want the encumbrance at this stage of my life. I raised my own children. I adore my wife’s three other children and enjoy our grandchildren who are raised by their own parent(s). Am I wrong to want more from a relationship with my wife? What do you suggest? — L.

not wrong to want more of your wife’s company. Calling a neglected 5-year-old an “encumbrance” packs a good deal less charm, though, even accounting for kids as hard work. I’m not unsympathetic; you understandably thought you were past all this, plus you got a multiyear taste of life sans dependents, only to watch that life slip away. But as any adult knows, plans aren’t destiny — and high expectations often just amplify our eventual disappointment. My apologies if this resembles “the typical . . . ‘accept,’ ” but you have two very good reasons to adjust your expectations to ac-

count for this little boy. The first is that you can’t make your wife change any behavior she doesn’t want to change. The second, the big one, is that your justifications notwithstanding — your stage in life, your antipathy for the stepdaughter, her duty to raise her own offspring — the child’s needs trump yours. You just don’t push aside kids because you’re owed a cruise, and you don’t judge a child for his mother’s failings. He’s innocent. To be fair, your wife’s “jealous malcontent” rejoinder doesn’t help. It’s not pretty to see two adults act like children, especially as a real child counts on you both.

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.

Bluffton, S.C., veterinarian Ben Parker works Monday to remove a large hook that was embedded into a 4-foot-long female alligator. Joe Maffo, owner of Critter Management, brought the gator to Bluffton’s Coastal Veterinary Clinic after his staff biologist, Matt Kraycar, saw the hook while removing the alligator from a residential pool in Wexford, a gated development on Hilton Head Island.

Man pleads in murder plot KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A northeastern Kansas man faces up to 10 years in prison after admitting he tried to hire someone to kill his wife. Lee Smith, 38, Basehor, entered the plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Mo., where the plot was hatched earlier this year. Smith admitted contacting a Kansas City man on May 9 and offering him $1,500 to kill his wife when she arrived at her work-

place in Overland Park. The man instead reported the offer to police. r
