Sunday afternoon sometime early in December,� Vespers member Jim Gilpin said. The group is under the direction of Terry Meadows, music instructor at Humboldt USD 258. Anyone is welcome to join the choir as well.

Leave the leaves at home, thank you. Carolyn McLean, who owns the land on which the Elm Creek Community Garden is situated, said Iolans should not bring fallen leaves to the garden’s compost pile as autumn arrives. She noted some already

have begun bringing leaves, lawn clippings and other debris to the compost pile. She said city crews will take leaves to the garden as part of a previous agreement between the garden’s board of directors and the city from foliage collected during Cleanup Week.

Engineering for roads and utilities is being done and their construction will account for first dirt turned, an event that will occur soon. “We really don’t have a good idea what total cost of the project will be,� Criss said, but promised “no bond issue will be sought and no tax increase will be required.� The district has accumulated some money in its capital outlay fund, and, Criss noted, it will take advantage of lease-purchase agreements. “It makes sense to use lease-purchase now,� he said, explaining that rates are bargain-basement at about 3 percent. With lease-purchase, whatever is purchased is amortized over several years. Criss also observed in the four years he has been superintendent, the district’s overall property tax levy has actually decreased a smidgen, going from 63.97 mills in 2009-10 to 63.124 mills this year. “The complex will be built with ‘valued engineering,’� Criss said, “as nice as possible but with us cutting all the corners we can and building as inexpensively as possible. “We want it to be a functional model that’s the crown jewel of the area for an all-inclusive sports complex.� Nothing that will be done will tinker with the district’s primary goal, Criss stressed.

“Our main goal is to provide the best possible educational experience for our students and that’s never going to change,� he said. “We also will continue to maintain and pay a highly qualified staff. We have the highest salaries of any district in Allen County and we want to build on that. “Our students and our staff always have been and always will be our priorities.�

Donald Krueger

Donald C. Krueger, 66, Emporia, died Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2012, at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City.  Cremation is planned.  Mass of Christian Burial will be at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Olpe.  Interment will take place at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery with military honors.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Don C. Krueger Good Samaritan Scholarship Fund or the H. Dale Buck Fund.  Contributions may be sent in care of RobertsBlue-Barnett Funeral Home.  You may leave the family online condolences at robertsblue. com.

H Complex goal, they, too, dreamed of a sports complex that included a track and football field, as well as fields for baseball and softball, sports that HHS studentathletes have excelled in during recent seasons. “Board members realized that our facilities for football and baseball at Walter Johnson Field were deteriorating,� Criss said, noting temporary fencing has to be erected each baseball season. Softball is played at Sweatt Park, at the southeast corner of town about a mile from Walter Johnson. “We don’t have lockers there (Walter Johnson),� he said. Restrooms are on the primitive side and the concession stand is barely adequate. “We decided building at one location would be much better,� he said. “We have parents with a son playing baseball and a daughter softball, often at the same time, which means they have to run back and forth between the two fields.� JOE AND JANE Works were the catalyst that pushed board members to action. They gave the district 51.95 acres that adjoins the east city limit

between Georgia and Florida roads, which are extensions of city streets Central and Pine. The Workses own B&W Trailer Hitches and are known for their community activism. In addition to being able to have all facilities for outdoor sports at one site, Criss said about half the donated land would be held in abeyance and someday might be the site for a new school. “That’s a long way off, though,� he added. “Our schools are in good shape today, but 15 years or so from now we may want to look at building a new school.� An issue that has surfaced with the proposed complex is what will be-

originated and offered condolences, saying Syria regretted the loss of life. He also urged Turkey and other countries to stop armed rebels from entering Syria. Tensions have been high along the Syrian-Turkish border for months, as rebels battling to topple the Assad government have seized a series of border crossings, including, most recently, Akcakale. Turkish news media reported that there has been fighting in the border area for the past three weeks, but it was not clear whether there was combat on Wednesday. On Friday, after mortars damaged 20 properties and injured three civilians in Akcakale, Turkey formally com-

plained to Syria, and the country’s foreign minister, Ahmet Davitoglu, publicly warned that Turkey would respond if there were another incident. Erdogan’s announcement of the retaliatory strike came six hours after three mortar rounds landed in Akcakale. “This abhorrent attack was responded to by our armed forces in the border region immediately,� Erdogan said in a statement. “Syrian positions, detected by radar, were fired upon with artillery.� Erdogan’s statement said Turkey’s response was in line with the military’s rules of engagement, a set of standing orders on the time and circumstances for using lethal weapons, revised after the June shoot-down.

How to maximize kidney transplants Every year, too many kidneys recovered from deceased donors don’t end up in transplant patients. They end up in medical waste incinerators. Last year, 4,720 people died while waiting for kidney transplants. Meanwhile, 2,644 kidneys were discarded. Some of these kidneys had problems that rendered them unfit for transplant. But many could not be transplanted because the system for allocating them is inefficient and outdated. Right now the waiting list for a kidney transplant stands at 93,702 people. The system isn’t saving — or improving — as many lives as it could. A committee that oversees kidney transplants in the United States recently proposed a series of smart changes to better parcel out 14,700 kidneys recovered from deceased donors. Under this plan, the top 20 percent of kidneys — the kidneys expected to last longest — would be directed to those candidates expected to live the longest after a transplant. That typically means younger patients. That proposal is a significant departure from the current system, which generally can be summed up as: Get in line and wait your turn. Depending on what part of the country you live

Right now the waiting list for a kidney transplant stands at 93,702 people. The system isn’t saving — or improving — as many lives as it could. in and other variables, you could wait two years or 10. The committee’s chairman, Dr. John Friedewald, a transplant nephrologist at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, tells us the new plan — called “longevity matching” — will help doctors “get more out of what we have.” The proposed changes would yield an estimated 8,380 more years of life from one year of transplants. Think about that: 8,380 years. This new proposal is similar to but not as aggressive as a 2007 plan that would have doled out kidneys more often to those who could live longest after transplant. But that proposal ran afoul of the federal government, which warned last year that it would violate age discrimination laws. Yes, this plan still tips the scale in favor of some younger patients. But it will still be possible for some in their 40s and 50s to make the cut and get the best organs, Friedewald says. Even those who don’t

make that cut will still be eligible for a transplant. Bottom line: The system won’t drive as many older organs to younger recipients, who may outlive them and wind up on the list again. A similar concept is already part of the system to determine who receives a transplanted lung, heart or liver. We understand why some people are nervous about these changes. In a fairer world, there would be enough kidneys to go around. But there aren’t. This is about maximizing the years that a kidney will work inside someone’s body, not rendering a judgment about how any recipient uses that time. Officials have spent the last nine years seeking to make the system more efficient. Let’s not wait another nine. The board that oversees transplants in the U.S. can — and should — make these changes next summer. Thousands of people are on kidney transplant waiting lists. Every day, every week, that officials delay, people die waiting.

US should tread lightly, but skeptically, on Iran By ROGER Z. GEORGE Los Angeles Times

As the U.S. contemplates whether to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, intelligence community leaders should be asking themselves a question: What if we’re wrong? That question wasn’t asked — or at least wasn’t answered — in the run-up to the 2003 Iraq war, with devastating consequences. Before giving up on containment or deterrence polices and undertaking a “preventive war” against a nation that has not attacked the United States, we should be as certain as possible of the evidence. Iran today presents an even murkier intelligence picture than Iraq did in 2003. We have not had a diplomatic presence there since 1979 and have had to rely on intelligence collected through technology, international inspectors and foreign intelligence relationships. In the absence of solid intelligence, the intelligence community has had to fall back on its own assumptions or mind-sets regarding Iran’s nuclear program and make educated guesses about how its government would probably operate its programs. Our assessments of Iran’s military capabilities have had to rely in part on our understanding of how American weapon developers conduct tests and develop weapons. Such analytic assumptions have and can again lead to incorrect conclusions.

... (T)he intelligence community should never be called on to make the case for intervention, as was the situation in 2003, when so-called white papers on Iraq’s WMD program were fashioned by the intelligence community to support Bush administration policies. So what can be done to avert another military strike based on devastatingly wrong intelligence estimates? How can we avoid terrible mistakes, followed by commission investigations and finger-pointing? First, we must set extremely high standards for evidence. Intelligence professionals must challenge themselves to look at their forecasts skeptically, asking whether underlying assumptions about Iranian behavior and technical talent are well founded. Policymakers should encourage this kind of critical thinking and be attentive to signs of faulty logic or flawed intelligence. Second, the U.S. must not overrely on information gathered and supplied by foreign governments. Such intelligence can be useful, but it is often provided as much to influence action by American policymakers as to provide unbiased and accurate information. Much of the foreign intelligence used to analyze Iraq’s supposed development of weapons of mass

destruction, for example, was self-serving, biased or flat-out fabricated. The U.S. is almost certainly the target for influence operations designed to shape American perceptions of the Iranian nuclear program. We should be especially wary of reporting that fits what we are expecting to see and challenge that reporting vigorously. Third, U.S. intelligence personnel should be kept at arm’s length from policy discussions, particularly those involving military options. Being too close to the decisions made by the Bush administration more than likely contributed to then-CIA Director George Tenet’s assertion that the U.S. had “slam-dunk” evidence that Saddam Hussein was actively developing weapons of mass destruction. Senior intelligence officials are not immune from wanting to be team players, and if a policy team is looking for information to support a desired action, this can skew an intelligence agency’s views

on the information it has gathered. James R. Clapper, the U.S. director of national intelligence, would be well advised to run all intelligence about Iran’s nuclear weapons program through a rigorous “red-teaming” exercise, involving outside experts who have no ax to grind or connections to the current administration or its policies. Fourth, the intelligence community should never be called on to make the case for intervention, as was the situation in 2003, when so-called white papers on Iraq’s WMD program were fashioned by the intelligence community to support Bush administration policies. Such reports are not rigorous intelligence assessments but rather advocacy pieces devoid of the important qualifiers that coordinated intelligence reports should carry. Finally, the intelligence community should immediately, if it has not already done so, prepare candid assessments of the effect military strikes against Iran’s nuclear facilities could have on both Iranian politics and regional stability. In 2003, such assessments proved to be prescient, but they were completed only after the decision had been made to invade Iraq. Consequently, they had virtually no impact on decisionmakers, who had convinced themselves that Iraqis would greet us as liberators and quickly restore

... (T)he decision to attack another Islamic state would carry consequences far beyond reducing Iran’s military potential .... the functioning of their society and economy. Needless to say, the decision to attack another Islamic state would carry consequences far beyond reducing Iran’s military potential, and the intelligence community needs to analyze those consequences concurrently with its analysis of intelligence regarding Iran’s nuclear intentions. These steps will not guarantee that intelligence used to reach the important decisions regarding Iran will be perfect. Clearly, it will not be. However, the intelligence community should not repeat mistakes it made in 2002 and 2003, nor allow itself to become the scapegoat for decisions that properly reside with the nation’s political and military leadership. ——— About the writer Roger Z. George, a former national intelligence officer, teaches at the National War College in Washington. He wrote this for the Los Angeles Times.

H Debate Continued from A1

For his part, Obama tried to bury his opponent in the very thing that Romney is said to crave: “data.” Repeatedly referring to arguments offered by his leading surrogate, former President Bill Clinton, Obama tried to rebut Romney’s claim that he could balance the budget while cutting tax rates across the board and increasing military spending by $2 billion.

“Math, common sense and our history shows us that’s not a recipe for job growth,” Obama said. But Obama sometimes appeared to struggle to offer fluid descriptions of his own policies — including on health care. His campaign appeared to acknowledge that it hadn’t been his best night. “Mitt Romney, yes, he absolutely wins the preparation, and he wins the style points,” deputy Obama cam-

paign manager Stephanie Cutter said on CNN. “But that’s not what’s been dogging his campaign. What’s been dogging his campaign are the policies that he doubled down on tonight.” Cutter said that “we feel pretty good about the president’s performance here tonight. Again, he wasn’t speaking to the people in this room. He wasn’t speaking to the pundit class. He was speaking to the people at home.”

Romney’s campaign policy director Lanhee Chen described Obama as “flatfooted” and said the president gave answers that “were kind of meandering at times. ... I wasn’t sure what the points were.” By contrast, he said, Romney delivered his responses “clearly, crisply and concisely.” Obama repeatedly avoided opportunities to take personal shots at his rival, even when offered clear openings. The president had one

Mustangs gun for league crown at Wellsville By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

Iola High’s Mustangs are looking for some hardware Friday. If Iola can knock off host Wellsville High, it effectively will clinch a Pioneer League championship in the Mustangs’ first year in the new league. “We’ve talked about it a lot this week in practice,” Mustang head coach Doug Kerr said, noting Iola hasn’t won a league title in football since topping the Southeast Kansas League standings in 1988. “We want that hardware,” he said. “We want that trophy. We want to put that patch on our letter jackets.” In order to accomplish this, the Mustangs must contend with an up-and-coming Wellsville squad that lost a large number of seniors last year to graduation, then struggled early this season as newcomers eventually adapted to varsity play. “But they’ve found their sea legs, so to speak, and they’ve played a lot better as the season has gone along,” Kerr said. “They’ve definitely picked a good time to play good football.” The Eagles stand at 2-3 overall, having won two straight after

K-State favors balanced approach MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — In a league of high-powered offenses that love to air it out, Kansas State is a misfit. The No. 7 Wildcats would prefer, in the words of Kansas coach Charlie Weis, to “ram it down your throat every single play.” But an improved passing game has allowed the Wildcats to be more balanced, and that’s made them even more difficult to stop than last season. They’ve already thrown for 758 yards through four games, an increase of nearly 50 percent over last year, and quarterback Collin Klein is completing about 70 percent of his throws. So far, he’s connected on 15 plays of at least See K-STATE | Page B2

Pregame outlook dropping their first three contests of the season. They stand at 2-1 in Pioneer League. The Mustangs are 4-1 overall and 3-0 in league action. The key to victory is stopping Wellsville’s running attack, Kerr said. “They like to control the clock with their running game,” Kerr said. “With limited possessions, we’ve got to be efficient when we’re on offense.” The Mustangs must prevent the big play — much like they’ve done in their 4-1 start — and eliminate penalties and turnovers on offense, Kerr said. A “bend, but don’t break” approach has served Iola well so far, Kerr said. Maintaining a balanced offensive attack won’t hurt, either. The Mustangs opened the season relying on the run, then turned to the pass in recent weeks as opposing defenses crowded the line of scrimmage. “I think we’ve surprised our

last couple opponents with our passing game,” Kerr said. “Mason Coons (senior quarterback) has done a good job of spreading the ball around to our receivers.”   AFTER FRIDAY, Iola can focus its full attention on Class 4A District 6 play, which will determine which schools qualify for postseason playoffs.

districts. Coincidentally, it may have been Iola’s lone defeat earlier this year at the hands of another former SEK foe, a 40-20 loss to Coffeyville, that has attributed to the team’s otherwise spotless record. Morale improved after the young Mustang team battled toe-to-toe with the state-ranked Golden Tornado, Kerr said. “That

score was rather deceptive,” he noted. “The key will be to see if we’ve improved from that,” Kerr said, “or if it just happened to be a game where everything fell right for us — and they still won. “But that’s still a long ways off,” Kerr continued. “We’ve got a tough opponent in Wellsville we have to deal with.”

Birthday basher leads way for ACC By RICHARD LUKEN richard@iolaregister.com

Hayley Martens was in the mood to celebrate Wednesday night — for good reason. The Allen Community College sophomore, whose birthday is today, gave herself an early present by delivering game-winning kills in all three sets in a volleyball sweep of visiting Fort Scott Community College. The Red Devils downed Fort Scott 25-14, 26-24, 25-20 in the ACC gymnasium. “We’re a whole different team when we come together,” Martens said. “We picked a great time to have the team understand that when we play together, we can do it.” The match’s pivotal moment — if there can be one in a threegame sweep — came in the waning moments of the second set. Allen forged ahead 23-20 before Fort Scott rattled off four straight points, pushing the Greyhounds to the brink of a set win. Head coach Brenda Peters called a time out to remind Allen that despite the one-point deficit, the Devils were still in control of the match. The Red Devils rallied for the next point to tie the score at 24-24 with a Goodman kill. A Greyhound error on a service return put ACC up 25-24. Martens hammered home the kill for the game-winner, putting the Red Devils up 2-0. Allen maintained the momentum in the final set, never trailing by more than two points and eventualy pulling away late. Peters noted Fort Scott was never able to string more than three consecutive points in the contest. Martens registered 11 kills and an ace to lead Allen on offense and 17 digs on the defensive side. Sierra Morgison was just behind with 10 kills, an ace and 14 digs. Jacqui Ortiz and Adriee Munoz registered 22 and 15 set assists, respectively. Ortiz also had 15 digs. Tayler Shook had 16 digs. Randi Billings notched two

win.” The win also puts Peters on the cusp of a personal milestone; it was the 99th of her career. The Red Devils, 11-11, have a week off before hosting Coffeyville Community College next Wednesday. “The break comes at a good time,” Peters said. “The girls have some confidence. We can take some time and build on this, which is what we’ll need because we have a lot of key conference games ahead of us.”

Reluctant star Cabrera locks up Triple Crown By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Only a precious few people will ever know exactly how it looked when Miguel Cabrera, one of baseball’s reluctant superstars, finally celebrated history 45 years in the making. Cabrera had slipped away to the visiting clubhouse at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday night, where he waited out the final moments in his bid for the

Triple Crown. Once everything transpired, all the other possibilities played out, he could finally revel in the feat. “It was like, everybody said to me it was Miguel Cabrera unbelievable,” said Cabrera, who was joined in the clubhouse by Prince Fielder, Justin Verlander and a few other

teammates. “They were excited to see this, enjoy this, be a part of something big, and winning, I feel better.” Yes, the AL Central champs managed to beat the Kansas City Royals 1-0, but the outcome of the game was secondary to the true drama that unfolded on the field. Cabrera became just the 15th player to win baseball’s Triple Crown, joining an elite list that includes Mickey Mantle, Ted

Williams and Lou Gehrig. Cabrera topped the American League with a .330 batting average, 44 homers and 139 RBIs, becoming the first Triple Crown winner in the major leagues since Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. “It’s an unbelievable feeling,” he said. “I can’t describe the feeling right now.” Cabrera’s achievement wasn’t assured until the Yankees pinchSee CABRERA | Page B2

Kansas City hopes to put skids on turnover trouble KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Of all the things the Chiefs should be focusing on this time of year, with the season four weeks old and the Baltimore Ravens coming to town on Sunday, something as elementary as protecting the football shouldn’t be topping the list. That’s something to work on

in training camp, when running backs are told to carry the ball “high and tight,” and quarterbacks are told to throw it away if they’re under pressure. Fundamentals, right? Lessons that should have been learned long ago. Clearly, that hasn’t been the case in Kansas City.

Yankees, A’s take home division titles By BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer

A dropped fly ball by Josh Hamilton, a home run from Ryan Zimmerman and pitch by pitch, the baseball playoff picture became completely clear on the final day of the regular season. “Now the real season starts,” New York Yankees star Derek Jeter said Wednesday night. The playoffs begin Friday with a pair of winnertake-all wild-card matchups. The defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals visit Chipper Jones and the Atlanta Braves in the NL, then Baltimore plays at Texas in the new, expanded format. On Saturday, the newly crowned AL West champion Oakland Athletics will face Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander and the Tigers in Detroit to open the bestof-five division series. That night, Johnny Cueto starts for Cincinnati against Matt Cain and host San Francisco in Game 1 of the NL division series. The low-budget A’s clinched their unlikely title, trumping Texas 12-5 by taking advantage of Hamilton’s error. Trailing by 13 games a week before the All-Star break, the A’s

The Chiefs lead the NFL with 15 turnovers, their eight fumbles lost are double the next-worst team in the AFC, and their minus-13 differential is a big reason that they’ve been blown out in three of the four games they’ve played, and needed a late rally to win the other. The most sobering display may

20 years, more than double this point last season. “You have to spend so much time trying to stop (Klein) as a runner, it obviously exposes you in the pass game,” said Weis, whose job it will be on Saturday to find an answer when the Jayhawks visit the Wildcats for the first time in his tenure at Kansas. “Sometimes they get some really easy money because you have to come up and stop him,” Weis said. “If you can’t stop him, you don’t have much of a chance to win the game.” As long as Bill Snyder is at the helm, Kansas State isn’t likely to abandon its steady, clock-eating approach in favor of a fullon shootout mentality, the kind that resulted in West Virginia’s 70-63 basketballlike final score last Saturday over Baylor. Still, it looks like the Wildcats’ goal of a more balanced offense is being realized. Klein is integral to the system, but credit is also due the group of offensive linemen who have protected the Heisman Trophy hopeful well despite injury problems. The Wildcats have been without right guard Boston Stiverson and left guard Nick Puetz most of the season. As a result, the lone returning starter is center B.J. Finney. Senior Cornelius Lucas, redshirt freshman Cody Whitehair, junior college transfer Tavon

so we’re going to concentrate on the importance of the football and hanging onto it,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said Wednesday. Sounds like it’s time for a refresher course, Ball Security 101. “One thing we do is work on it more,” Crennel said, “so all week we’re going to put more emphasis on hanging onto the football.”

hit for Curtis Granderson in their 14-2 rout of the Boston Red Sox. Granderson had homered twice to reach 43 for the year, tied with the Rangers’ Josh Hamilton and one shy of Cabrera. Cabrera went 0 for 2 against the Royals before leaving in the fourth inning to a standing ovation. He finished the regular season hitting four points higher than Angels rookie Mike Trout, his toughest competition for AL MVP. Cabrera was the runaway leader in RBIs. “I am glad that he accomplished this while leading his team to the American League Central title,” Yastrzemski said in a statement, pointing out that his Red Sox reached the World Series when he won one of baseball’s most coveted titles. The Tigers will have that chance when they open the postseason Saturday against Oakland. “It was hard the last two days because everybody talked about it. I just had to focus, I had to go out there and do the job,” Cabrera said. “The hardest part was to go out there and focus and win games. I said, ‘If we win the division, everything would take care of itself.’” The crowd at Kauffman Stadium gave Cabrera a standing ovation before he flied out in the first inning. He struck out in the fourth but remained in the game, allowing manager Jim Leyland to remove him with two outs to another standing ovation from thousands

overcame a four-run deficit Wednesday to relegate the Rangers to a wild-card spot. “It shows how important Game 162 is,” Oakland designated hitter Jonny Gomes said. “I don’t think it took 162 games to check the character of this ballclub.” The Yankees claimed the AL East a few hours later. They began celebrating in the dugout during the seventh inning when the scoreboard showed second-place Baltimore had lost 4-1 to Tampa Bay, thanks to three home runs by Evan Longoria. Jeter, a five-time World Series champion, and the Yankees put an emphatic end on their finish, routing rival Boston 14-2. A year after a thrilling, last-day scramble for playoff spots, all 10 slots had already been filled going into the afternoon. Soon enough, the pairings were set, too. The Yankees hold homefield advantage throughout the AL playoffs, and will open Sunday at either Baltimore or Texas. Zimmerman and the Washington Nationals got sized for hats with postseason patches, then beat Philadelphia 5-1 to earn home-field advantage all the way through November, if necessary.

have been last Sunday, when Kansas City turned it over six times — five in the first half — against San Diego. Matt Cassel tossed three interceptions and Jamaal Charles fumbled twice, allowing the Chargers to race out to a 27-6 halftime lead en route to a 37-20 win. “We cannot turn the ball over,

Rooks and junior Keenan Taylor have been counted on to pick up the slack. “They work together so well,” Snyder said. “Pass protection, so much of it is communication prior to and after the snap of the football, being able to adjust to a variety of different things that can take place.” Besides providing competent pass protection, the offensive line’s discipline is a major reason why Kansas State has been assessed just eight penalties for 66 yards over four games. The Wildcats are far and away

the best in the Big 12 at avoiding yellow flags — the next team in line is Kansas, which has racked up 18 penalties for 129 yards. Another boon has been Klein’s chemistry with his pass catchers. While the senior quarterback has worked extensively on his delivery since the summer, his most important reason for newfound success could be his relationships with those on the other end of his passes: wide receivers Tramaine Thompson, Tyler Lockett, Curry Sexton and Chris Harper.

Races postponed HUMBOLDT — A weekend of racing, featuring the USRA Mo-Kan Nationals at Humboldt Speedway has been postponed, due to fore-

casts for rainy, cold weather Friday and Saturday. The replacement date has not been confirmed, track owners said.

of appreciative fans. Cabrera high-fived his teammates as he entered the Detroit dugout, and then walked back to the top step and waved his helmet, just as if he was celebrating at home. “I would say without question he’s enjoyed it. How could you not enjoy what he’s done if you’re a baseball player?” Leyland said. “I doubt very much, knowing him, that he necessarily enjoys all the extra attention, and all the extra conversations he’s had to have. It’s kind of out of his realm in personality, to be honest with you.” Cabrera’s pursuit of history occurred largely in the dark, though, overshadowed by thrilling playoff races, the sheer enormity of the NFL — even the presidential election. An event that in other years might dominate headlines has been mostly cast aside. “The entire baseball world should be here right now,” said Verlander, the reigning AL MVP, who may soon watch that award get handed off to his teammate. Perhaps part of the void has to do with Cabrera’s very nature. He’s not the boisterous sort, never one to crave attention. He would rather hang out with a couple of buddies than stand in

“I couldn’t be happier.” Mary Hughes is well-known in the Parsons area for her volunteer work – and her pies. Her pastries have brought hundreds of dollars at charity auctions. So when osteoarthritis in her shoulder and knee threatened to slow her down, she chose replacement surgery with orthopedic surgeon Dr. Brad Meister at Labette Health. “The shoulder went well, so I got the knee done,” she said.“It was wonderful after it was all over,” she said. “I have no pain.” Going through Joint Camp helped prepare Mary for her surgeries and what to expect every step of the way. She was impressed with the number of people from all over southeast Kansas who were there for treatment. From surgery through follow-up exercises, the staff became like family, she said. “I had a hard time breaking away,” she laughs. “They had to kick me out!” Having orthopedic surgery at Labette Health was a good experience, she said. “They did a great job of taking care of me.” “I liked not having to go to the city to have it done,” she said. “We have nationally known orthopedic surgeons and they do a good job, so why go any place else?” “I couldn’t be happier.”

Kansas jobs expected to increase ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kansas will see employment growth of 1.8 percent next year, regardless of who wins the White House, as business picks up after the uncertainty of the November elections, economic researchers at Wichita State University said Wednesday. The universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center for Economic Development and Business Research reported it expected roughly 24,175 new jobs to be created in Kansas next year. Most of those new jobs are anticipated to be in professional and business services, education and health services, and leisure and hospitality. The research groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Jeremy Hill, said in a phone interview that although consumer demand is weak, retail sales across the state have gone up. Income has been growing above the inflation rate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Businesses are ready.

They are well capitalized, or can get capital, because loans are cheap. They are waiting, but they are sitting on their hands because of uncertainties. And as soon as we can get through these clouds in Kansas, they are going to start moving forward,â&#x20AC;? Hill said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are not likely to jump out, but they are definitely going to tip toe, or they are slowly going to walk out into the economy next year, based on the outcome of the elections.â&#x20AC;? That business growth is expected to happen regardless of whether President Barack Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney is elected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They may not like it, or they may love the new environment, but they will still move forward either way. ... The reality is here and they are going to move forward with the new reality,â&#x20AC;? Hill said. The forecast does not factor in automatic federal

government spending cuts, which would require an across-the-board cut of 9 percent to most Pentagon programs and 8 percent in many domestic programs. Hill said the defense cuts would â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantly affectâ&#x20AC;? the aviation-dependent economy in Wichita. The automatic cuts were mandated by the failure of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s congressional deficit â&#x20AC;&#x153;supercommitteeâ&#x20AC;? to strike a budget deal. The process of automatic cuts is called sequestration, and the administration has no flexibility in how to distribute the cuts, other than to exempt military personnel and war-fighting accounts. Some aircraft manufacturing in Wichita involves critical components and is not likely to be as affected by defense cuts as some other aircraft business. The light aerial attack fleet is one such critical defense component. Another is the tanker refueling planes, parts of which are built

by Spirit AeroSystems in Wichita. Some defense suppliers have already prepared for slowing growth in military demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So a lot of the companies have already done some downgrades of employment over the last couple of years preparing for some of this,â&#x20AC;? he said. The report projects the largest expanding sector of the economy next year in Kansas will be professional and business services, up 5.7 percent for a gain of 8,980 jobs. That would be followed education and health services with an increase of 2.8 percent for a net gain of 5,330 jobs. Leisure and hospital trailed with a 2.7 percent increase for the addition of 3,195 jobs. Manufacturing jobs next year are forecast to increase by 1.8 percent for 2,955 jobs. Government at all levels in Kansas is expected to shed 1,555 jobs. The information industry is expected to lose 230 jobs.

New class of drugs controls ulcerative colitis Dear Dr. Donohue: I’ve suffered from ulcerative colitis since I was 16. I am now 21. My mother passed away two years before my diagnosis from complications of the same disease. No medicines helped her. I’ve taken a laundry list of medications. They work for about three weeks and then stop working. I can have up to 20 bowel movements a day, occasionally with blood in them. My doctor says the only other medicine that has a chance of working is Remicade. I researched it, and found that most people get relief that lasts only six months to a year, and it has side effects such as cancer and death. I have stopped all medicines for a year and a half, with slight improvement. My stools are still loose, but have dropped down to seven to 10 times a day. Can you give me info on new medicines or new methods to combat this disease? — P. Answer: With ulcerative colitis, the colon is studded with ulcers (sores). Diar-

Dr. Paul Donohue To Your Good Health rhea, abdominal pain and weight loss are the manifestation of this illness. Often, it runs in families. The initial medicines for ulcerative colitis are sulfasalazine, Pentasa and Asacol. If they don’t calm the inflamed colon, prednisone is turned to. Cyclosporine is given intravenously when the illness is unresponsive. Remicade (infliximab) is a newer medicine that soothes the colon by neutralizing a body-made substance called TNF (tumor necrosis factor), a material that promotes inflammation and ulcer formation. It’s also used for Crohn’s disease (another inflammation of the digestive tract) and for illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis. Many of

these patients, including those with ulcerative colitis, have enjoyed a long remission from their illness. Another newer medicine for ulcerative colitis is Humira (adalimumab). It has shown promise for control, should Remicade not work. Remicade does have serious side effects. Deaths are truly infrequent, infinitely less than automobile deaths. Lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph nodes, has appeared in some users, but the incidence is small. Have you discussed with your doctor the possibility of colon removal? I know a busy doctor who greatly suffered from ulcerative colitis and had to cut back on his work. He had his colon removed. Now he’s practicing at the same feverish pace at which he practiced as a new doctor. Dear Dr. Donohue: I contracted restless leg syndrome. It affects me mainly at night. I take one and a half tablets of pramipexole to allow me to get to sleep. The side effects, however — tiredness, for one — last well into the next day. Will RLS be with me for the rest of my life? I am 87. – P.D. Answer: Restless leg syndrome is a jitteriness

and often painfulness that arises in the legs when a person sits or, more often, when the person lies down in bed. The sensations drive a person to get up and move about for relief. Have you tried any nonmedicine treatments, like a warm bath before bedtime along with massage of the legs? You might be able to cut back on the dose of your medicine. People have told me that their restless legs have become normal in time. Others have told me differently — their restless legs have stayed with them unless they used medicines on a constant basis. The course of this disorder is unpredictable. Dear Dr. Donohue: Please say something about the treatment for hydroceles. Will wearing a jock-strap supporter help? — G.G. Answer: A hydrocele is a collection of fluid in a sac within the scrotum. Permanent correction involves surgically removing the sac. A jock strap won’t be helpful. If the fluid collection is small and not bothering you, it can be left alone. You should, however, show it to your doctor.

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.

Facebook tops 1B NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Facebook has topped 1 billion users, but the past few months have not been easy. CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that the company is going through a bit of a rough patch following its rocky initial public offering. Zuckerberg updated his Facebook status today to announce that the social networking site has more than 1 billion active users each month. He thanked users and said that he is committed to making Facebook better. The Menlo Park, Calif.based company has had a difficult time of late. There

were trading glitches the day it went public in May and concerns since then about its revenue potential. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also facing lawsuits from disgruntled shareholders. Zuckerberg said in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;? show interview today that â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a tough cycle now and that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help morale, but people are focused on what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re building.â&#x20AC;? Last month Zuckerberg gave his first interview since Facebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shaky IPO and since that time heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working hard to boost confidence among investors and the public.
