Hijacking theory gives hope to relatives

Stein said this tour is the second installment of a project she completed in the summer of 2012,

(MCT) — The theory that Malaysia Air Flight 370 was hijacked has encouraged relatives of passengers who are holding out hope that the missing plane landed somewhere. “My gut feeling is that it landed. I still feel his spirit. I don’t feel he is dead,” said Sarah Bajc, a 48-year-old American teacher living in Beijing whose partner, Philip Wood, a 50-year-old IBM executive, was a passenger on the flight. A former technology executive, Bajc has been one of the most proactive of the family members, setting up Facebook and Twitter accounts encouraging people to keep looking for the plane.

We are crossing 11 countries and as well as deep and remote oceans,” said Malaysia’s acting transportation minister, Hishamuddin Hussein, said Sunday at a news conference in Kuala Lumpur. The flight departed Kuala Lumpur for Beijing at 12:20 a.m. March 8 and disappeared from civilian radar within 50 minutes. However, Inmarsat satellites picked up tracking information suggesting it remained in flight until at least 8:11 a.m. Aviation geeks using airport data from X-Plane, a flight simulator website, have identified more than 600 runways within range of the nearly 3,000 miles that the plane could have traveled from Kuala Lumpur. The flight carried 227 passengers, 159 of them Chinese citizens. On Chinese websites, many people voiced hope

Poetry Tour to promote literacy and creativity comes to Creston July 15 ■

By SARAH BROWN

CNA staff reporter sbrown@crestonnews.com

A

little bit of creative inspiration is making its way to Creston on July 15. On July 1, Maya Stein and Amy Tingle, of Nutley, N.J., will begin a 30 day journey — riding a tandem bicycle from Boulder, Colo., to Beloit, Wis., — through America’s heartland writing free poems and building Little Free Libraries. The endeavor, which the pair call “Type Rider II: The Tandem Poetry Tour” is described as a pair of poets riding a tandem bicycle 1,400 miles to promote poetry, community, a love of reading and the spirit of collaboration. “Part of the meaning and message of this trip is collaboration and how cooperation can create amazing things you can’t do by yourself,” Stein said. Through Kickstarter, the pair have raised almost $4,000 beyond their original goal of $26,000 for this year’s tour. Along the route, Stein and Tingle will build more than 27 Little Free Libraries. The duo have partnered with Little Free Library, an organization with a similar mission to promote literacy, community and creativity through building

free book exchanges worldwide. Creston’s Little Free Library will be decorated by Creston:Arts volunteers. The location of the small structure has not yet been determined, but will serve as a gathering place where anyone is welcome to “take a book, return a book.”

Celebration Creston:Arts will welcome Stein and Tingle by hosting an open mic night and poetry slam, where members of the community are encouraged to read, recite, sing, rap or scream poetry or songs. At the event, Stein and Tingle will be creating personalized poetry on their typewriters for the

people they meet. Attendees will be asked to submit one word from which Stein and Tingle will base two separate and original poems. Stein said they will be giving the poems away. Also, copies, photographs from the road and interviews with local poets and writers and profiles of some community members will be included in a final book about the project.

Inspiration

Iowans support marijuana for medicinal purposes (MCT) — Iowans overwhelmingly support allowing doctors to prescribe marijuana for medical use, according to poll results released this morning. By an 87 to 17 percent majority — with the support of 68 percent or more of every party, gender and age groups, Iowans support legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes, Quinnipiac University Poll found. That level of support is comparable to other states, according to Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “Iowans overwhelmingly think marijuana should be legal for medical purposes, but most voters oppose legalizing personal recre-

ational use,” Brown said. On the other hand, “Opposition to personal marijuana is higher in Iowa than in any state we’ve surveyed so far on this subject.” Despite that level of support, efforts in the Iowa Legislature to legalize medicinal marijuana have failed to gain broad support this year. Both Republican and Democratic legislative leaders say there is more interest and discussion about medicinal marijuana, but more education and research is needed before the issue can be considered further. Among those leery of medicinal marijuana is Gov. Terry Branstad,

a Republican seeking a sixth term. Although he sympathizes with families who say medicinal marijuana would offer them relief from a variety of conditions, Branstad said officials must keep in mind the “unintended consequences” that could lead to abusing the system. “I think we have to be careful about drafting our laws just for a few people that have a particular problem or ailment,” Branstad said. By a 55 to 41 percent margin, Quinnipiac found Iowans oppose allowing marijuana for personal use. Democrats support personal marijuana use 54 to 44 percent and

voters 18 to 29 years old support it 62 to 35 percent. Quinnipiac found all other groups are opposed to legalizing recreational use, with men opposed 51 to 45 percent and women opposed 59 to 37 percent. That may be because 49 percent of Iowans say marijuana is equally as dangerous as alcohol, while 16 percent say it is more dangerous and 31 percent say it is less dangerous, Quinnipiac found. Voters are evenly divided 46 to 46 percent on whether marijuana use leads to other drugs. Men say no 50 to 42 percent while women believe 51 to 42 percent it does lead to other drugs. Only 36 percent of Iowa voters,

including 42 percent of voters 18 to 29 years old, say they ever have tried marijuana. The poll also found: • 83 percent of voters would be somewhat uncomfortable or very uncomfortable riding in a car driven by someone who has smoked marijuana • If personal marijuana use were legal in Iowa, 57 percent of voters say it would not bother them if a neighbor grew marijuana in their home • Colorado’s legalization of recreational marijuana has been bad Please see SURVEY, Page 2

for the state’s national image, Iowa voters say 54 to 28 percent The poll of 1,411 registered voters, which has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percent, was conducted March 5-10 by live interviewers calling landlines and cellphones. Marijuana is classified as a Scheduled 1 controlled substance both in Iowa and at the federal level. Although 20 states and Washington, D.C., have established medical marijuana programs the subject re-

mains contentious in states such as Iowa where lawmakers fear an improperly established program could lead to lax enforcement and rampant recreational use. Earlier this month the Iowa Board of Pharmacy denied a petition seeking to change a rule regarding the practice in Iowa, saying it did not have the authority to establish a state medical marijuana program. —————— ©2014 The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) Distributed by MCT Information Services

where she towed a typewriter behind her bicycle from North Hampton, Mass., to Milwaukee, Wis., over a 40 day period. During her first tour, Stein wrote a new writing prompt on her typewriter each day, asking passersby to add a line to the poem. The idea was originally inspired by her father, who placed a typewriter in the common hallway, which linked up all of her family member’s bedrooms. “The hallway was a landing spot at the top of the stairs,” Stein wrote on her blog. “A shared space that served as a kind of pause between our gatherings as a family and the solitude of where we each slept.” Stein said, each night she would read what someone else had written and add her own words. “That story and the stories that followed fed my

imagination, drew me more deeply into my own creativity, and created an inextricable bond between those of us who wrote it together,” she said.

that the plane and its passengers might be found unharmed. “It is the first time it is good news that a plane was hijacked,” wrote one microblogger on the popular Sina Weibo site. “There’s still hope for my daughter and her husband to be alive,” the parents of one young woman told the Beijing News. The problem with the hijacking theory is that no group has come forward to take credit for the airplane’s disappearance or to make demands. “That makes it very difficult for us to verify if it is a hijacking or a terrorist act,” Hishamuddin said. Malaysian officials said they are not yet classifying the incident as hijacking and are considering a suicide mission by one of

the passengers or crew. The pilot and co-pilot are high on the list of potential suspects, because of the expertise required to divert the plane. At Sunday’s news conference, Malaysian officials said police had searched the home of 53-year-old pilot Zaharie Adman Shah and removed a flight simulator he kept at home. The co-pilot, Farq Ab Hamid, 27, is also under investigation, as are potentially all of the passengers. Whoever commandeered Malaysia Air 370 took extraordinary evasive measures. That person switched off the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) and transponder soon after takeover and made a sharp westward turn during a 10-minute leg of the flight between Malaysian and Vietnamese

(MCT) — With it doubtful the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade ruling will be overturned any time soon, opponents of abortion have been attacking it piecemeal, passing legislation to make it more difficult to obtain the procedure. The tactic was vividly on display last week as judges took up the issue in Arkansas and North Dakota. The results, echoing legal battles in other states, were mixed. In Arkansas a federal judge called a key portion of an antiabortion law unconstitutional. However, the judge upheld other parts of the law. As a result, observers of the debate say, abortion opponents will continue to support state-by-state legislation to chip away at Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. “They’re trying to do what they can’t do outright,” said Bettina Brownstein, a cooperating attorney with the ACLU of Arkansas. “They can’t outright get a ban. They can’t, as a matter of fact, say when viability (of a fetus) occurs. They’re chipping around the edges here.” On Friday, U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright ruled that viability — or the fetus’ ability to survive outside the womb — was the determining factor in abortion law and that Arkansas’ law banning nearly all abortions after 12 weeks was unconstitutional. Viability is usually expected around 22 to 24 weeks, Wright noted. “The Supreme Court has ... stressed that it is not the proper function of the

Legislature or the courts to place viability at a specific point in the gestation period,” Wright wrote. She said the law “impermissibly infringes a woman’s 14th Amendment right to elect to terminate a pregnancy before viability.” But the law’s supporters found a silver lining in the ruling. Wright left intact a portion mandating that doctors perform an ultrasound and notify the pregnant woman if her fetus has a heartbeat at 12 weeks. Abortion opponents secured another victory this month in Texas, where two abortion clinics closed down, saying they were unable to comply with a new state law. The law restricts the type of drugs that can be used to induce an abortion, adds a requirement that physicians who perform the procedure have hospital admitting privileges within 30 miles of their clinic, and blocks abortions after five months of pregnancy. “Women deserve the higher safety standards for both clinics and doctors mandated by (the law), and we applaud the closures of clinics which cannot or will not comply,” Kyleen Wright, president of Texans for Life Coalition, wrote in an e-mail to the Los Angeles Times. The law is being challenged in federal court but remains in effect pending a decision. Supporters of abortion rights, meanwhile, scored a victory in North Dakota on Friday, the same day as the Arkansas ruling. At issue was a new state law requiring that

physicians performing abortions have hospital privileges. North Dakota officials and the Red River Women’s Clinic in Fargo announced that doctors at the clinic would maintain such privileges. Again, the result is mixed. Although the Fargo clinic will continue to operate, the restriction essentially eliminates the possibility of having an abortion clinic in rural areas of the state, critics argue. In Arizona meanwhile, abortion providers are suing to block a law that limits the use of medications that can be used to induce the procedure. Similar laws have been struck down in Oklahoma and North Dakota but upheld in Ohio

and Texas. According to the Guttmacher Institute, a research organization that supports reproductive health services and abortion rights, 22 states enacted 70 abortion restrictions in 2013. That makes it the second biggest year for abortion restrictions after 2011, when a wave of tea party conservatives gained influence and more than 80 restrictions were passed. Conversely, five states increased access to abortions, sex education and emergency contraception last year. ——— ©2014 Los Angeles Times Distributed by MCT Information Services

About this Book

The couple last spoke on Friday evening March 7, as Wood was getting ready to leave for the Kuala Lumpur airport for the red-eye flight back to Beijing. She had sent a car to pick him up at Beijing International Airport at 7.30 a.m. Shortly before 8 a.m., the driver telephoned her to say that the flight hadn’t arrived and that there was no information on the arrival board indicating a delay. “Have you deplaned yet?” she texted him. When she didn’t hear back, she telephoned his Malaysian cellphone and his Beijing cellphone. The former went directly to voice mail and the latter gave a message saying the user had the power off. ———— (c)2014 Los Angeles Times Distributed by MCT Information Services

airspace, where there is little primary radar coverage. As the flight zigzagged off course, it also rose to 45,000 feet, well above the approved altitude for a Boeing 777, possibly to ensure that passengers could not use their cellphones or to incapacitate them by causing a shortage of oxygen, experts say. “I am making the assumption at this point that the hostages are going to be leveraged,” said Bajc, who said she also believes Wood would be a particularly valuable hostage because he is the only U.S. citizen, other than two toddlers, among the passengers. “This was clearly an orchestrated effort to take the plane. Why would anybody go to hide themselves if they were going to crash the plane into the water or commit suicide?” Bajc said.

Drivers need to turn it on! Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, about drivers not using their turn signals: “My Sound Off is to remind motorists that turn-indicator usage is not an option — it saves lives and prevents crashes. Freeway travel is stressful at its best, and displaying five clicks of the turn indicator before changing lanes (not just one or two blinks) alerts fellow motorists to what’s about to happen. — Theresa S. in Alabama” A major pet peeve of many, many folks, myself included! It’s the LAW in most states. Not only are you being rude, you also might get a ticket. There are so many vehicle accidents, some fatal, where the driver did not signal the intended turn. And folks, do me a personal favor and be aware of motorcycles! We are on the road, too. — Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Here are other uses for a photo album: • Use to hold recipe clippings. • Keep sports or other trading cards in one. • Keep empty seed packets in one as a reminder of what was planted. • Use to hold extra ID or reward cards.

Hints from Heloise • Save special greeting cards in it. — Heloise MUD STAINS Dear Heloise: My husband comes in covered in mud sometimes after working outside. Do you have any tips for getting mud stains out of his clothes? — A Reader, via email I do! Let the stain dry, and then try to brush off as much of the dry mud as you can. Treat the stain with either a prewash spray, or take a little liquid laundry detergent and rub it from the back of the material to “push” the mud through. Then run it through the wash as normal. Check it before placing in the dryer to make sure the stain is completely removed. If not, repeat the steps. Have another laundry problem that you need help solving? I have put together a pamphlet of hints to remove stains. To order, send $5 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (70 cents) envelope

Rub them with liquid detergent and launder in the hottest water that’s safe for the fabric using an enzyme detergent. — Heloise WHY ASK FIRST? Dear Heloise: Regarding the column on unsolicited help for seniors or disabled persons: A person who is struggling may already be exerting more-than-normal effort. If more unexpected effort is suddenly added, the person’s balance is unprepared for the added force and cannot adjust fast enough to avert a possibly serious overcompensation. That is why we should always ask. — George L., via email PRE-MEASURE COOK- BEETLE BAILEY® by Greg & Mort Walker ING Dear Heloise: When cooking, I pre-measure as many ingredients as I can. I have only a couple of measuring cups and one set of measuring spoons, so once measured, I place the ingredients in cupcake liners (if it is a small quantity) until ready to use. It helps having everything already measured and handy. — A Reader in San Antonio (c)2014 by King Features Syndicate Inc. BLONDIE® by Dean Young

Iowa State professor develops smartphone security software AMES (MCT) — As technology becomes more and more advanced, so do the hacking methods that could threaten the software in computers, phones and even cars and airplanes. The U.S. Department of Defense has recently invested in more protection of their Android smartphones, and the department has turned to an Ames company for help. EnSoft Corp., an Amesbased company developing tools to better handle software, has been helping the department since 2012 and recently completed the first phase of their project. Suraj Kothari, Iowa State professor in electrical and computer engineering and founder of EnSoft Corp., compared his team’s product, which takes a closer look at the software behind smartphone applications, to the work surgeons do with an MRI machine. “You need an MRI machine if you have something complex so similarly, what EnSoft is doing is kind of building an MRI

for software that enables you to look inside the software to see its internals,” he said. EnSoft, which started in the Iowa State Research Park in 2002, has provided ts products to North America, Asia and Europe, and has worked with companies ranging from major automobile manufacturers to John Deere, Caterpillar and Boeing. The group originally started working with control systems in cars and airplanes, but started using its technology to look at security problems in 2012. Kothari said the Department of Defense project started with three developers and has since expanded to two postdoctoral workers, one full-time research scientist, three graduate students and three to four undergraduate students. Since Kothari first started working in the field decades ago, he said he has seen security breaches become more complex with the growing technology in “hidden computers.” “There are computers we can see, but there are many

others like cellphones have a computer, your car has a computer, printers have a computer,” he said. “Now the attacks the Department of Defense is worried about is these hidden computers, embedded systems, are going to be hacked and the consequences will be catastrophic.” While Kothari said no major catastrophe has happened yet, he said there are possibilities like hacking into a nuclear reactor or hacking into a car with Internet access and electronic controls. Kothari noted a new F-35 airplane, which is run on 24 million lines of code, as one object that his company’s product could help. With “such a complex code in that plane,” Kothari said his product can analyze large pieces of code like

As more and more large objects become more dependent on software, Kothari said the idea of smart devices becoming “the way of life” has its pros and cons. “That’s very important for our modern life but at the same time, we are building software the way Egyptians built the pyramids. We’re building this huge software, but now we need techniques,” he said. “In order to protect the Internet, they need to create this technology to model and analyze software.” —————— ©2014 the Ames Tribune, Iowa Distributed by MCT Information Services

The Numbers Game

3

Teams from last year’s Final Four (Wichita St., Michigan, Louisville) in the Midwest region.

National Digest

Hawk matchup IOWA CITY — For the first time in eight seasons, the Iowa Hawkeyes are dancing. But they will do so in an unorthodox manner. Iowa will play in the First Four against Tennessee on March 19 at UD Arena in Dayton, Ohio. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. Central, following a game between Cal-Poly and Texas Southern happening beforehand and the game between the Hawkeyes and Volunteers will be televised nationally on TruTV. This marks the Hawkeyes’ first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since earning a No. 3 seed in 2006, when it suffered a heartbreaking 64-63 first round loss to 14th-seeded Northwestern State. This also marks the first time Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery will coach in the tourney since 200910, his final season at Siena before taking over the Hawkeyes. McCaffery also said to reporters Sunday that he intends to travel with the team to Dayton on Monday, with the intent of heading back to Iowa City Wednesday morning for his son Patrick’s operation to remove a thyroid tumor and then returning to Dayton in time for the game.

Husker opener LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska and Baylor, two formed Big 12 rivals, will meet in the second round of the NCAA tournament in the West Regional in San Antonio on Friday. The 11th-seeded Cornhuskers, who left the Big 12 after the 2010-11 season, make their first appearance in the tournament since 1998 and first as a member of the Big Ten. The sixth-seeded Bears have made two appearances in the last four years with the most recent coming in 2012, when they were bounced by Kentucky in the South Regional final. Nebraska was ousted in the Big Ten quarterfinals 71-67 by Ohio State on Friday while Baylor was defeated by Iowa State 74-65 in the Big 12 final Saturday. Cory Jefferson, who had scored 54 points in a threegame span for the Bears, came out flat against Iowa State, contributing just five points. Meanwhile, it was the Cornhuskers’ defense that folded in the loss to Ohio State as LaQuinton Ross dropped 26 points and the Ohio State bench poured in 21.

Coach from Creston inducted into Hall of Fame Blazek guided Trojans for 29 seasons By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer • lpeterson@crestonnews.com

DES MOINES — A successful high school basketball coach from Creston who spent the bulk of his career at Hawkeye 10 Conference rival Atlantic was inducted into the Iowa High School Athletic Association Basketball Hall of Fame Saturday night. Steve Blazek, 1970 graduate of Creston High School, and Bob Haak of Spencer were coaches inducted into the Hall of Fame during halftime of the Class 4A championship game. Players inducted were Lloyd Thornburg of Pleasantville, Mark West of Southeast Polk, Jeff Donaldson of Sioux City North, Robbie Sieverding of Bellevue Marquette and Jeff Horner of Mason City, who was coaching West Des Moines Valley in the 4A title game against Iowa City West. Iowa City West won that game, earning a Class 4A three-peat in the process, 5745.

DES MOINES — After going 8-of-14 on 3-pointers in building a 42-22 halftime lead, Harlan hit a cold spell and had 12 second-half turnovers in a 65-61 Class 3A consolation loss to Waverly-Shell Rock Saturday afternoon. Waverly-Shell Rock (23-4)

No 3 seed OMAHA — Creighton embraced another benefit of its move to the Big East on Sunday when the Bluejays landed their highest seed for the NCAA basketball tournament.

CU figured its loss in Saturday’s conference tournament championship game would leave them with no better than a No. 4 seed, which still would have been two spots better than the previous best seed it received in 2006.

 When pairings and seedings were announced late Sunday afternoon, Creighton found itself a No. 3 seed.

He also averaged 5.0 rebounds per game while finishing second on the team with 67 assists to go with 29 steals. Taylor was the leading scorer in Class 1A among sophomores, scoring 19.3 points per game. He finished second in rebounding for the Maroons, averaging 6.7 boards per game. Taylor led Taylor Diagonal in assists (91), steals (83) and blocked shots (42). Earning second team honors were Murray seniors Sam Rockhold and Pat Kilmer and Diagonal junior Blake Butler. Rockhold averaged 8.5 points per game with a team-high 9.0 rebounds

Harlan built a lead as large as 24 points in a red-hot first half, making eight 3-pointers by six different shooters and shooting 57 percent from the field.

Dick Bennett was so nervous about his son’s season at Virginia that he wouldn’t watch the games. He waited for Tony’s call afterwards to get updates. Today, Dick couldn’t be prouder. Tony Bennett cut down nets on Sunday after the Cavaliers defeated Duke for the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament championship, Virginia’s first title since Ralph Sampson’s career ended in 1983. It’s been a remarkable

run for Bennett, who took two of his three Washington State teams to the NCAA Tournament before arriving in Charlottesville, and now it continues with the expectation of the favorite in the East Region. Virginia is smoking, having won 16 of 17, but this new territory for the Cavs, who look to reach a Final Four for the first time since 1984. The dangerous teams may be further down the bracket. Third-seeded Iowa State defeated three NCAA teams on its way to winning the Big 12 Tournament. The Cy-

clones have one of the nation’s top offenses. Fourth-seeded Michigan State is healthy and cruised to the Big Ten Tournament title with a 14-point victory over Michigan on Sunday. “It gives us a little barometer of where we are and where we can be,” Spartans coach Tom Izzo said. No. 2 seed Villanova has had a few extra days to stew over its Big East quarterfinal loss to Seton Hall. The Wildcats are bidding to return to Please see EAST, page 10A

BLAZEK: Continued from page 8A

29 seasons he guided the Trojans to a 364-219 record competing in the Hawkeye 10 Conference, running his career mark to 541-271 and tying him for 20th on the alltime win list. His Atlantic team finished third in the 2002 State Basketball Tournament in Class 3A. During his career, Blazek coached 10 conference championships and had 10 substate appearances. He was selected twice to coach in the Iowa Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Game. After Saturday’s induction ceremony, Blazek said one of his primary coaching influences was his high school coach in Creston for three years. “I would say Bill Baldwin was a big influence on me in coaching basketball,” Blazek said. “He was pretty deliberate offensively. He made sure he had the kids shooting the basketball that he wanted shooting the basketball. He had a lot of discipline.” Another Creston connection came about in Atlantic. Rollin Dyer, a teacher and coach in Creston until Blazek’s eighth-grade year, was the athletic director in Atlantic when Blazek was hired in 1984. “I’m sure it was probably my advantage knowing Mr. Dyer,” Blazek said. “He had a son, Bob, who was my age in school when they were in Creston.” The point guard on Blazek’s

third-place team in 2002, Alan Jenkins, is now the Trojans’ head coach as Blazek’s successor. “I really pushed for that,” Blazek said. “He had some offers in Omaha. He’s a hard worker and will do a great job with it.” Steve and his wife, Tammy, have raised daughters Amanda and Cortney and now live in Lee’s Summit, Mo.

Record-setter Horner’s storied prep career at Mason City, playing for his father, Bob Horner, ended in 2002, when he was named Iowa’s Mr. Basketball. His senior total of 741 points is the best ever in Class 4A and his career total of 2,194 is also a 4A best. At the University of Iowa, Horner was a two-time AllBig Ten selection and was honorable mention AllAmerican in 2006. The other coach inducted Saturday was longtime Spencer coach Bob Haak. Other player inductions were Lloyd Thornburg, Pleasantville; Mark West, Southeast Polk; Jeff Donaldson, Sioux City North; Robbie Sieverding, Marquette Catholic (Bellevue).

Academic honor Nodaway Valley senior Caleb Mueller was among 28 players from all classes honored on the Academic AllState Team by the Iowa Basketball Coaches Association Friday night. Other academic all-staters included Cole Neary of Kuemper Catholic and Tyrel Peters of Griswold. in the second half, Stensland finished with 20. Velky had 19 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in a solid overall game. The Harlan senior class, which finished second and fourth at state in its final two seasons, includes Lansman, Cave, Ferry, Juhl and Nate Gettys.

Crimeans back secession in referendum; Ukraine told to pull out troops by Friday More than 95 percent of voters favored joining Russia ■

KIEV, Ukraine (MCT) — Even before residents of Crimea went to the polls Sunday, Ukrainians and Russians knew the result of the vote would be to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. So, when results showed that more than 95 percent percent of the voters favored joining Russia, it didn’t really turn any heads. What did, however, was news footage showing ranks of Russian tanks lining the road near Kerch in eastern Crimea, apparently preparing to move, while other footage showed Ukrainian tanks moving to defend the border with Russia in the Donetsk district, on the eastern edge of the country. The prospect of a strengthened Russian force moving north from Crimea into other parts of Ukraine, or Ukrainian tanks engaging potential Russian invaders in the east, raised tensions after weeks when the Russian takeover of Crimea was largely without bloodshed. The interim Ukrainian government pledged to spend an additional $7 billion on its underfunded military. On Monday, Crimea’s rump government is expected to ask that Russia annex the territory. The Russian Defense Ministry said that Ukrainian soldiers still in Crimea had until Friday to leave the territory or face military action by Russian forces. Crimean officials said 80 percent of eligible voters turned out for the referendum, which offered only two options: secede from Ukraine and join Russia or revert to the 1992 constitution that gave Crimea vast autonomy. There was no option to maintain the status quo. With 50 percent of the ballots counted, union with Russia was favored by 95.5 percent, with 3.5 percent choosing more autonomy. One percent of the ballots were ruled invalid. In a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Barack Obama reiterated that the referendum result “would never be recognized by the United States and the inter-

national community,” according to a White House statement. But the statement didn’t indicate any change of heart from Putin despite Obama’s renewed warning that the U.S. is “prepared to impose additional costs on Russia for its actions.” “President Obama reiterated that a diplomatic resolution cannot be achieved while Russian military forces Obama continue their incursions into Ukrainian territory and that the large-scale Russian military exercises on Ukraine’s borders only exacerbate the tension,” the statement said. The White House issued a straightforward statement: “We reject the ‘referendum’ that took place today in the Crimean region of Ukraine. No decisions should be made about the future of Ukraine without the Ukrainian government. Moreover, this vote was not necessary. The Ukrainian government has made clear its willingness to discuss increased autonomy for Crimea.” The European Union and European Council heads issued a joint statement, noting there would be consequences, and those would be discussed Monday in Brussels. “The referendum is illegal and illegitimate and its outcome will not be recognized,” the statement said. “We reiterate the strong condemnation of the unprovoked violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and call on Russia to withdraw its armed forces.” Russian and Crimean of-

ficials gave every indication that they intend to proceed quickly with formalizing the Russian annexation. Crimean Prime Minister Serhiy Aksyonov called the decision historic and said he would seek Russian agreement on Monday, with the Russian Parliament expected to take up the matter on Wednesday. Crimean Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Ilmirovich Temirgaliev said the region would replace the Ukrainian currency, the hryvnia, with Russian rubles in April. The Friday deadline for Ukrainian troops to leave Crimea came in an announcement from the Russian Ministry of Defense, which said it had agreed to “a truce” to allow the Ukrainian forces a work week to get back to the Ukrainian mainland. Russian troops without insignia have been occupying Crimea for two weeks and have surrounded several military bases still occupied by Ukrainians. Ukrainian soldiers said last week that their Russian counterparts had told them that after the referendum, their presence would be considered illegal and that they would be given the choices of disarming and returning to Ukraine, taking Russian citizenship or preparing to defend themselves. Ukrainian Defense Minister Ihor Tenyukh, in an interview with Ukrainian Interfax news service, said Ukrainian troops would not leave Crimea. He said Ukrainian combat readiness remains at its highest level, and that in past few days 40,000 Ukrainians have signed up for National Guard duty. While Russian troops have controlled Crimea since the end of February, experts and military officials

note that once Crimea is broken away from Ukraine, it will lose access to water and fuel, which flow to it from the Ukrainian mainland, and that the area will not have a land connection to Europe except through what is likely to be a hostile Ukraine. Crimea’s isolation has led military experts to conclude that Russia may move to annex other Ukrainian regions needed to provide a land corridor connecting Crimea to Russia. Stephen Long, an international security expert at the University of Richmond, said that he doubts international outcry over an expanded Russian land grab would deter Putin. “Putin is willing to endure any level of international condemnation in the pursuit of his interests in the Russian near abroad,” Long said. “What is stunning about this story is that he appears to believe that he can change the narrative through sheer force of will.” “What is not clear,” Long added, “is whether Mr. Putin believes that he is actually changing public perception, or whether he simply cares so little about it that he sees no reason to offer a more convincing argument for his actions.” —————— ©2014 McClatchy Washington Bureau Visit the McClatchy Washington Bureau at www.mcclatchydc.com Distributed by MCT Information Services
