Area residents with a calling for social work have an opportunity awaiting them with Spirit of the Plains CASA in Garden City, an organization that advocates for abused and neglected children traveling through the Kansas court and foster care systems. Becky Clark, executive director of the local CASA branch servicing children in Kansas’ 25th Judicial District, is calling on people with big hearts to get involved as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). Clark has helmed the operation since Aug. 14. Under her leadership, the organization has redirected its focus on volunteer

violation of state law. A majority on the state Board of Education gave a vote of confidence to Dale Dennis, who has worked for the Kansas State Department of Education for half a century. The 9-1 decision to keep Dennis in place after nearly two hours of closed-door meetings was applauded by as many as 100 public school administrators who packed into the state board’s office across the street from the Statehouse.

Clark said. “Many times, without our services, the children’s voice would not be presented to a judge.” During a Rotary Club luncheon on Wednesday, at which Clark was the guest speaker, Finney County Magistrate Judge Christopher Sanders said CASA volunteers act as his eyes and ears when making decisions in child-in-need-of-care cases. Clark said Sanders called on volunteers to write their court reports “as though a child’s life depends on it, because it could.” There are 23 CASA programs serving 71 counties in Kansas. The first CASA program in Kansas started in 1981 in Wichita. In 1986, the Kansas Supreme Court created program standards and guidelines for every CASA program to follow in order to meet certification. See CASA, A5

A licensed social worker with 20 years of experience in public education, Clark is no stranger to the game and is positioned to receive her master’s degree in social work in May from the University of Kansas. She hopes to use that added expertise to strengthen CASA in southwest Kansas for the sake of children caught up in a fraught Kansas foster care system in which 74 children were reported missing in October. CASA reports that there are about 6,900 children in the custody of the Kansas Department of Children and Families amid a shortage of foster homes and high staff turnover. As an answer to that, CASA tasks itself with finding people willing to help. “We are the voice for the children in the court system who are abused and neglected,”

House endorses harsher DUI sentencing By Tim Carpenter The Topeka Capital-Journal
TOPEKA — Olathe school instructor Caitlin Vogel’s death in a traffic accident caused by a two-time drunken driving offender inspired the House on Friday to endorse legislation elevating the sentence for habitual violators convicted of involuntary manslaughter or aggravated battery in DUI crashes. The reforms contained in House Bill 2439 were christened “Caitlin’s Law” to recognize tragedy of the Stilwell woman’s death in the 2016 wreck in Johnson County. The measure was advanced to final action Monday. Rep. Russ Jennings, a Lakin Republican and chairman of the House Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee, said the driver of the vehicle that struck Vogel knew he was impaired when deciding to slip behind the wheel of a borrowed SUV not fitted with a alcohol breath-testing device.
Rep. Russ Jennings, R-Lakin, chairman of the House Corrections and Juvenile Justice Committee carried a bill on the ﬂoor of the house Friday morning that the house later endorsed. The legislation would elevate the sentence for habitual violators convicted of involuntary manslaughter or aggravated battery in DUI crashes. [THAD ALLTON/THE CAPITAL-JOURNAL]
“When interviewed by law enforcement officers in this case, he told them, ‘Yes, I’ve been drinking. I just wanted to go out and drive around for a while.’ He did,” Jennings said. Jennings said testimony by Vogel’s parents in favor of legislation enhancing the criminal penalties was drenched in heartache and desire to shield other families from trauma. “It would be fair to say it was the most emotional
committee hearing I’ve experienced in the Legislature,” Jennings said. The bill amends state law in the handling of involuntary manslaughter and aggravated battery cases tied to deaths or serious injuries resulting from crashes triggered by someone found guilty of driving under the influence. Provisions of the bill would apply if the motorist responsible for a crash had been previously convicted
of a DUI and was driving despite a suspended or revoked license or having been declared a habitual violator. Under the bill, the minimum sentence for aggravated battery related to a DUI accident would escalate from the current 38 months to a new benchmark of 47 months. In addition, the minimum penalty for involuntary manslaughter under these circumstances would go up from 62 months to 89 months. “I know what kind of carnage is out there,” said Rep. Virgil Weigel, a Topeka Democrat and former law enforcement officer. “This is a very good bill.” Vogel died after James McAllister, of Overland Park, ran a stop sign and broadsided her vehicle. McAllister, who had been convicted twice previously on DUI charges, was sentenced to 108 months in prison after pleading guilty in 2017 to involuntary manslaughter. The House also vote 70-45 to advance to final
action a bill extending the hours businesses can sell liquor by the drink in Kansas. The contents of House Bill 2482 would enable public venues, clubs and drinking establishments to sell alcoholic beverages from 6 a.m. until 2 a.m. the following day. Existing state law sets the time frame for serving drinks to customers from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. the next day. Missouri and Nebraska open the doors at 6 a.m. for sales of liquor by the drink. Rep. Sean Tarwater, R-Stilwell, said the expansion would serve businesses interested in attracting third-shift customers or individuals gathering to watch international sporting events. State law allows catering companies to begin offering alcoholic beverages at 6 a.m., said Rep. Brandon Whipple, D-Wichita. “Stand with allowing businesses a little more regulatory freedom,” said Rep. Kristey Williams, R-Augusta.

Senators weigh bill strengthening human trafficking protections By Brianna Childers
TOPEKA — As part of its efforts to combat human trafficking, the Kansas attorney general’s office is pushing for a bill that would extend protections to minors who have fallen victim. Senate bill 281 would amend the Protection from Stalking and Sexual Assault Act to include relief for those who have been trafficked by allowing a county or district attorney, the attorney general or a child’s guardian to obtain a protection order for a minor who was trafficked, preventing them from being contacted or harassed by someone involved in their trafficking. Assistant Attorney General Pat Colloton, chairman of the Human Trafficking Advisory Board, said the bill would provide relief to children who had been trafficked. Colloton spoke in favor of the bill at its committee hearing Tuesday. She said children may struggle to escape trafficking because they lack family support

and their parents don’t have enough money. “The ability to extricate is very difficult. This person is worth a lot of money to the trafficker,” Colloton said. “The trafficker is unlikely to just allow the child to go.” Colloton said a child could be worth up to
$1,000 a night. Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office has made combatting human trafficking one of its priorities, and served more than 420 trafficking victims last year. Any violation of a protection order would give law enforcement officials the opportunity to arrest
an alleged trafficker and charge them for violation of the order. Greg Smith, a liaison for the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department, said his office supports the bill because child victims are viewed as valuable by traffickers and therefore likely to reenter trafficking. The
protection order available under the bill would prevent that by helping stop an alleged trafficker from contacting a child victim. Sen. Rick Wilborn, R-McPherson, said the bill is only one step in fixing the human trafficking problem, and it’s not a “cure-all.”

With limited funding from existing sources, the FCEDC can’t always offer competitive incentives required to lure businesses and industries to town as a way to create jobs needed to further stimulate the local economy. Current financial support for the FCEDC comes from Finney County ($150,000), Garden City ($130,000), Holcomb ($25,000) and Garden City Community College ($15,000). Knowing that level of funding cannot sustain an aggressive, ongoing plan to fuel investment in business growth — especially when competing with other communities — the FCEDC has discussed the possibility of making another run at a sales-tax initiative. The idea would be to devote a .15-cent sales tax now collected in Finney County and dedicated to HorseThief Reservoir — tentatively slated to sunset in 2021 — to economic development. Local voters already rejected similar attempts to pour more tax dollars into the FCEDC, and many would be wary once again. Selling the latest plan will require a clear picture of the return on investment. And not only in a pledge to deliver more goodpaying jobs, but also in specifics on how those jobs would drive quality-of-life and other community improvements. While we’ve seen notable progress in primary-job growth of more than 3,700 jobs from 2009 to 2016, according to the FCEDC, there’s still a pressing need for more workers earning higher wages and the economic gains they provide. And even with recent and notable successes — the milk powder plant, transload facility and housing, health care and retail development, for example — the community cannot rest on its laurels when it comes to growth opportunities. It’s also worth noting that a cloud of doubt hovers over the retail sector. The demise of big-box stores nationwide due to consumers shopping online — the recent closure of Sears in Garden City was an example — will continue. No community can afford to shortchange economic development strategies if it hopes to remain strong and viable, which is why the FCEDC’s latest idea warrants a closer look and consideration.

Ready or not, campaign season is here
omeone once said that the only two things guaranteed in life are death and taxes. I’d like to add one: words that are short on truth. In campaigns, candidates often say a lot of words and they’re taken at face value. But they need to be scrutinized, evaluated and the truth shared with the voters. Unfortunately, that is easier said than done. The hard-working press often try, but especially today the working reporters are too few and far between and often simply do not have the time to do the research. And then there is fake news and social media complicating things further. But, since the campaign season has officially begun, below are some messages that deserve some scrutiny from Kansans during this critical election year. What got me started down this path were a couple of communications that stood out as examples where pushback is needed to add some truth. The first is what I’m hearing from some outspoken far-right conservative Republican legislators. They were certainly no help in correcting the disastrous Brownback tax experiment in the 2017 Legislative session. Now they are attacking Gov. Sam Brownback
as if they had never gone along with his plan. Rep. J.R. Claeys, a Salina conservative, was quoted in The Topeka CapitalJournal calling the budget “shortsighted.” He accused Brownback of throwing all his allies under the bus. They want us to forget how they voted and simply buy the rhetoric that re-elects the incumbent. If you think for a moment these ultraconservatives criticizing Brownback have had a total conversion, please return to reality. Americans for Prosperity and the Koch Brothers do not change stripes. They just double-down. The second example comes from the message that Independent Greg Orman recently put out to jumpstart his effort to be the next governor of Kansas. Let me say first, I admire and like Greg. He is a fine man who made a valiant effort to unseat U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts in 2014. But this is 2018, and at best, all he can do is help elect Kris Kobach or soon-to-be Gov. Jeff Colyer. This would simply extend the Brownback misery for up to eight more years. Orman’s a spoiler, but what really gets me is the message he is putting out that both Kansas and Washington, D.C., are essentially political cesspools that only an independent can fix. I understand that has some fit with D.C., but to include Kansas with no effort to be fair or tell the whole story, I take serious exception. Democratic and moderate Republican legislators, backed by four former
governors of Kansas, made huge positive changes in the 2017 legislative session. As a word of advice, Greg, this only reinforces those who believe your real goal is a U.S. Senate seat, not serving as governor. Those invested in Kansas politics know that both our history and our recent success proved Kansas isn’t Washington, and bipartisanship can — and does — exist. Words used do matter, and the truth can make a real difference. I close with a personal experience to end on a softer note. When I was Speaker of the House and home for a weekend, I attended a Chamber legislative lunch. The death penalty was a frequent topic, and although I opposed it, I said little if anything. The Sunday Salina Journal really got my attention. Page 2 headline was “Carlin says the death penalty will only pass over his dead body.” With a tape of the lunchtime session, I was in the Journal office the next morning to share the record of what took place. In the Tuesday edition, I made the headlines again. “Carlin claims he did not say the death penalty would only pass over his dead body.” Clearly it was my personal lesson on not fighting with someone who buys printer’s ink by the barrel. John Carlin, a Democrat who served two terms as governor of Kansas, now is a visiting professor/executive in residence at Kansas State University in the Staley School of Leadership Studies.

O’Malley a good choice for the moderates
f you are a moderate or traditional Republican pining for the days of Govs. Bob Bennett, Mike Hayden and Bill Graves, then Ed O’Malley is your candidate. If the field does not narrow quickly, Kris Kobach will win the GOP primary in a walk, leaving only the Democratic nominee and wild card Greg Orman standing between our lawsuit-losing, anti-immigration firebrand and the Kansas governorship. Kobach ally Donald Trump won Kansas by 20 points, so his defeat by even the best Democrat is far from certain. Meanwhile, Orman is
depending on an infusion of independent votes that nearly all political scientists find highly implausible. In truth, Orman may cost the Democrats precious votes. This may leave Kobach the last man standing. Kobach’s economic and educational policies would largely mirror Brownback’s. On paper, the strongest alternative to Kobach is Governorany-day-now Jeff Colyer, who has proven quite effective at fundraising. However, Colyer will have trouble disassociating himself from the unpopular Brownback administration in which he served, and from policies he has consistently supported. Nor is Colyer much of a public speaker. Pundits may be reminded of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the political scion, mainstream darling and fundraising powerhouse. The conventional wisdom predicted Bush would be the 2016 Republican presidential
nominee. Yet Bush was unprepared for this age of reality-TV politics and backlash against “the establishment.” In the primaries, Bush did not even make the first cut. Colyer may face a similar fate. Furthermore, Colyer has not distinguished himself during the on-again, off-again, will-he-or-won’the saga of Brownback’s new job, stepping aside quietly while the outgoing governor gave the State of the State Address this month. This is not the kind of aggressive, no-sissies leadership that Republicans expect. Other Republicans have trouble differentiating themselves. Insurance Commissioner Ken Selzer is running on his qualifications as a CPA — outstanding for his current job, but too technical for a governor. Former state representative Mark Hutton promises to bring together the GOP factions, but that is a tall order given the vehement
opposition of moderates to Brownback’s legacy. Hutton also lacks statewide name recognition or much political experience. Former state senator Jim Barnett is a possibility, but he would have to overcome the legacy of a decisive defeat by Kathleen Sebelius in 2006. Barnett has often identified as a moderate, but he has a history of vacillation on the moderate-conservative question. Can he project the “here I am, take it or leave it” persona that Republicans demand in the Trump era? Finally, libertarian businessman Wink Hartman is a dark horse with no prior service in public office. Only O’Malley stands as unequivocally and unabashedly moderate. As a legislator, he helped negotiate a school finance formula that was fully funded for several years. O’Malley has proven a constant, vocal critic of the Brownback-Colyer-Kobach
legacy, and unlike several others, he has no ties to Brownback. O’Malley’s base includes the vote- and contribution-rich Johnson County, which he once represented in the statehouse, and Wichita, where he now leads the Kansas Leadership Center, making quiet, behind-the-scenes contacts around the state. O’Malley seems able to seek input from across the political spectrum without trying too hard to be all things to all people. The GOP field needs to narrow sharply, and soon, or it is Kobach’s to lose. One candidate stands to inherit the Graves, Hayden and Bennett mantle as a true and consistent moderate. The GOP field should narrow to a Kobach-O’Malley race, and it should do so posthaste. Michael Smith is a professor of political science at Emporia State University.

A department official estimated that the project is about halfway done, meaning Garden City residents could be able to enjoy Domino’s pizza in about a month. A representative from the Domino’s franchise was not available for comment on Friday. At the same time, another popular pizza chain is positioning itself for entry into Garden City. Pie Five Pizza Co. is setting itself up to expand its Kansas footprint into Garden City. The craft pizza shop has filed a construction permit request for an empty building located at 1110 Fleming St., next to the Mitchell Theatres Sequoyah 8 movie theater. The property has been a pizza place previously, as it was home to the old Ken’s Pizza in the 1970s and ‘80s. It also has housed a Mexican fast food restaurant. But it might soon be serving up artisan pizzas to Garden City residents. According to an NDS representative, the construction permit request is still pending approval as the City of Garden City waits for Pie Five to submit a list of construction contractors. The location would be Kansas’ 10th Pie Five location. Pie Five already has set up shop in Lawrence, Leawood, Lenexa, Manhattan, Mission, Olathe, Overland Park and Topeka. The franchise claims to make dough fresh every morning, chop vegetables by hand and mix marinara sauce with freshly picked tomatoes. The chain also offers wings and a craft beer selection.

The Board of Education unanimously recommended a new transparency process be developed to remove doubts about financial work at the Department of Education. “We’re looking forward to putting this behind us,” said Board of Education Chairman Jim Porter, of Fredonia. Senate Majority Leader Jim Denning, R-Overland Park, said the Board of Education ignored a legislative audit proving $9.7 million annually was being appropriated in violation of state law. He said the Board of Education refused to embrace a wider forensic audit to determine if other financial problems existed and closed ranks with a cherished employee. “They didn’t address the audit. Are they that arrogant?” Denning said. “This is about the skirting of the legislative process. It’s my understanding they have no checks and balances over there.” Sen. Laura Kelly, a Topeka Democrat running for governor, said the Board of Education acted appropriately. “Dale Dennis is the definition of a true public servant,” Kelly

CASA volunteers are also held to a standard. Every volunteer is required to pass local, state and national background checks. While most CASA volunteers already have full-time jobs, anyone can become a CASA volunteer and no pre-existing special education credentials are required. Clark explained that each volunteer is assigned a case with a child. Volunteers meet with their kids, compile court reports filed a few weeks before hearings and include information that attorneys and judges may not otherwise know, including details about their education, placement, health concerns, hobbies, and any problems that may have been identified along the way. Volunteers are required to meet with their kids at least once a month, but Clark says
DAVOS, Switzerland (TNS) — President Donald Trump gave his salesman’s pitch for America on Friday before an international crowd of corporate and political titans, and took credit for its economic success, even as he was shadowed by fresh clouds from home about his heightened jeopardy in the Russia investigation and opposition to his immigration plan. Contrary to predictions that Trump might use his keynote address to the World Economic Forum in Davos to bash multilateral trade deals and international alliances, as he did during his campaign, he appeared to soften the edges of his “America First” policy in his speech to the elites who gather in this glitzy Alpine resort each winter to champion free trade and global cooperation. “America is open for business and we are competitive once again,” Trump told several hundred attendees, reading his speech from a teleprompter. “Now is the perfect time to bring your business, your jobs and your investments to the United States.” Given the complaints here about Trump’s aggressive trade policies and worries that America is withdrawing from its global leadership role, Trump received general credit for showing up and hobnobbing with fellow world leaders and moguls at an event that has not seen a U.S. president since Bill Clinton in 2000. Some in the crowd booed and hissed when Trump, during a question-and-answer session that followed his speech, said it
“wasn’t until I became a politician that I realize how nasty, how mean, how vicious, and how fake the press can be.” While Trump’s antimedia remarks are familiar to Americans, they struck a dissonant note on the international stage since U.S. presidents historically have been global clarions for a free press. Although the evidence was scant, Trump dropped at least one hint he might be moderating other views. Earlier this week, Canadian Prime Minster Justin Trudeau announced here that his country would join 10 others that have agreed to move forward on the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact without the United States. Trump withdrew from the proposed accord shortly after taking office, calling it a “horrible deal.” In his comments here, Trump cracked the door slightly to reentering the TPP in some way, saying he was open to negotiating trade deals with the 11 countries “either individually, or perhaps as a group.” That sparked a buzz of comment here and on social media. Trump vowed to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement during the campaign, but his administration is seeking to renegotiate it with Mexico and Canada. In contrast, the White House has shown no sign it is reconsidering its decision on TPP. And while global challenges like climate change and poverty dominate the agenda here, the CEOs and other top executives Trump met in his 36-hour visit publicly applauded the corporate tax cuts he signed into law last month. All that put Trump in a good

mood. “I’ve been a cheerleader for our country,” Trump said in his speech, which largely echoed familiar White House talking points. “And everybody representing a company or a country has to be a cheerleader, or no matter what you do, it’s just not going to work.” Trump said he will put America first just as other leaders should put their countries first, a line he used in a harder-edged address he delivered at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam in November. Trump accused “some countries” of exploiting the international trading system at the expense of others. He said he supports free trade, but it “needs to be fair and it needs to be reciprocal.”
“The United States will no longer turn a blind eye to unfair economic practices, including massive intellectual property theft, industrial subsidies and pervasive state-led economic planning,” he said, probably a reference to China. At his raucous political rallies back home, that sentiment often generates loud cheers. The crowd at Davos stayed silent, saving polite applause for the end of his remarks. As he often does, Trump claimed credit for the booming U.S. economy, citing growth numbers and the removal of business regulations. That message was partly diluted by news Friday that U.S. growth slowed slightly in the fourth quarter to 2.6 percent, which was short of Trump’s projections.
said. “We need more dedicated advocates like Dale who put our kids first.” Senate President Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, and House Speaker Ron Ryckman, R-Olathe, joined with Denning and other GOP legislators to urge the Board of Education to suspend Dennis with pay pending a forensic audit to determine whether other financial irregularities existed in allocation of billions of dollars annually by the state to public schools. Four former Kansas governors — Republicans Mike Hayden and Bill Graves, Democrats Kathleen Sebelius and John Carlin — sent a pre-emptive letter to the 10-member Board of Education expressing unqualified support for Dennis. The dispute involving Dennis revolves around distribution of $9.7 million in special transportation aid to more than two-dozen districts serving dense population areas. GOP legislative leaders estimated the total amount of unauthorized expenditures during the past few decades could surpass $400 million. Sen. Molly Baumgardner, the Senate Education Committee chairwoman, said the paid suspension of Dennis should have been viewed as a standard procedure before accountants conducted a thorough audit of
school funding. It’s important to restore faith in financial integrity of the appropriations process, she said. “My hope is that, you know, this isn’t the worst misappropriation of funds in the state,” said Baumgardner, a Louisburg Republican. “What we are trying to do is find out what the breadth, the scope is. How deep? How long? We’re trying to get to the bottom of it.” A backdrop to this scuffle is the Kansas Supreme Court’s decision in October 2017 that state aid to K-12 public schools approved by the Legislature and Gov. Sam Brownback was unconstitutionally insufficient. The 2018 Legislature was ordered to alter the finance formula and infuse the system with enough money to achieve compliance with the Kansas Constitution. Brownback, while sharply critical of the court’s action, asked the Legislature in January to increase annual appropriations to public schools by $600 million within five years. The transportation funding allocations, confirmed in a legislative audit completed in December, have apparently existed since the 1980s. Legislative auditors recommended the special appropriation be written into Kansas law by lawmakers. Bills to accomplish that statutory
adjustment have been introduced in the Senate and House. Dennis, 80, said the Department of Education took steps necessary to forward the extra transportation aid to districts at the verbal direction of a state legislator without passage of a specific law. Dennis said the practice had subsequently been discussed in House and Senate hearings over the years. In response to the legislative audit limited to transportation funding, Republican lawmakers spoke with Attorney General Derek Schmidt about potential of a criminal investigation and asked the Board of Education to
suspend Dennis. Public school superintendents drove hundreds of miles to Topeka to deliver an extraordinary expression of support for the deputy commissioner. “I’m not surprised at all,” said Ulysses Superintendent Dave Younger. “There’s just as many at home who’d like to have been here.” “I just believe in Mr. Dennis and the leadership he’s provided for kids in the state,” said Steve Karlin, superintendent of Garden City schools. “I haven’t worked with a better educator in my life.” Cynthia Lane, superintendent of schools in Kansas City, Kan., said Dennis was recognized as the state’s strongest advocate of public education. She said there was no attempt to hide existence of the supplemental transportation, which this year earmarked $559,000 to her district. The most substantial recipients of extra aid are Wichita, $2.9 million; Shawnee Mission, $1.1 million; Maize, $865,000; Olathe, $860,000; and Blue Valley, $597,000. Colby Superintendent Katina Brenn said Dennis was a man of “integrity, character” who didn’t deserve to be the target of a political smear campaign. “You can call him in the middle of the night if you have a question,” she said.
volunteers often do much more. Whether it’s a trip to the zoo, the movies or a restaurant, Clark says it’s important for volunteers to spend time with their kids and build a relationship. “Our biggest thing is to build a relationship with that kid because we are the one consistent thing in their life all the way through the court system,” Clark said. “Social workers might change, case managers might change, but their CASA volunteer will stay the same. That’s one thing we ask is if somebody starts a case that they go all the way through and finish it.” CASA is currently serving 49 children in the 25th Judicial District, which includes Greeley, Wichita, Scott, Hamilton, Kearny and Finney counties. Last year, the agency served 75 children. “We are in desperate need of volunteers,” Clark said, adding that volunteer work with CASA is a “big commitment” that requires 30 hours of training specific to the program. However,
the training protocol has changed over time, and prospective volunteers can complete part of the process online. Once everything is complete, the Office of Judicial Administration determines who is eligible to work with the children. Clark says CASA currently has 14 volunteers, having just trained a class of eight that graduated in January. But even with those 14, “We definitely don’t have enough to cover our vast area,” she said. “So we are in desperate need of anyone who has a heart for making a difference with a kid.” The next training cohort will be held in the spring. Work is unpaid, and Clark described the job as “one of the hardest” volunteers will ever have. Still, she said, it’s also “one of the most rewarding,” she said. After all, CASA reports that their children spend less time in the foster care system on a national level, which puts them at less risk to fall through the cracks. They’re reported to find
permanent families more quickly and move on to adoption more quickly if their original families are unable to reintegrate. And if anything happens to the kids — if CASA volunteers suddenly can’t account for them — the program begins tracking them right away. Between Clark and CASA’s volunteer manager, the southwest Kansas branch only has two full-time staff members charged with applying for grants, managing up to 30 volunteers and safeguarding as many kids in need as possible. But despite the hard work involved, Clark says they’ll do what it takes to keep volunteers invested. “We’re not just about recruiting volunteers,” Clark said. “We’re really into the business right now of retention, so we want to make sure our volunteers have a good experience and we offer them all the support they need to do the best job that they can on behalf of their kids.” CASA isn’t without difficulties. A lack of volunteers is also
coupled with a gradual decrease in funding, Clark said. The organization is funded through grants and private donations. It’s also the recipient of several community trusts. With five months leading the organization, Clark says she doesn’t understand why funding is going away, but it’s been dwindling over the last three years. But even with less funding, Clark is powering through, and she’s calling on others with a big heart to help. “If anybody has a heart for giving back to the community and really, really making a difference with some of our most vulnerable citizens, this would be a great volunteer opportunity for them, and we would just encourage them and welcome them with open arms to contact us,” Clark said. Those interested in volunteering can contact CASA at (620) 271-6197. Contact Mark Minton at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Scott City duo splits semi results Jurgens reaches finals, Hayes dropped By Brett Marshall Sports editor
Jarret Jurgens and Wyatt Hayes are no strangers to highlevel competition. That’s one reason why they enjoy their half-hour trip to Garden City every late January for the Rocky Welton Invitational wrestling tournament. The two Scott City veterans — Jurgens now a senior and Hayes a junior — had hugely successful 2017 performances at the Welton. Jurgens captured the gold
medal in the 152-pound division while Hayes earned a third-place bronze medal at 160 pounds. The pair of Beaver wrestlers have each moved up a weight class this year, and they were back in business on Friday at the opening day of the 60th Welton Invitational at The Garden. Jurgens (21-1) set himself for a potential repeat by sweeping through four matches, all by falls, including a semifinal triumph over Chase Ramirez of Valley Center at the 4:58 mark of the third period. Hayes, meanwhile, had his hands full with the state’s No. 1-ranked 170-pounder in Troy Fisher of Goddard, who was
dominant in a 13-6 decision. Earlier, Jurgens had dispatched Matthew Boyer of Ulysses (2:32), Korbin Brown of Fountain-Ft. Carson, Colo. (0:35) and in the quarters over Elijah Blanco of Scottsbluff, Neb. (3:31). “It’s one of my favorite tournaments, and one that I really focus in on,” Jurgens, the No. 1 seed, said after earning a spot in the Saturday afternoon title match where he will face Franklin Cruz of Pomona, Colo., the No. 2 seed. “I may have faced him last year, and if so, it should a good, tough match.” See SCOTT, A8
It’s pretty much a given that in a 16-man field, the deeper a wrestler goes into the championship side of the bracket, the tougher the matches become. That could not have been more true for Garden City High School’s only two grapplers to reach Friday afternoon’s semifinals in the 60th Rocky Welton Invitational. The Buffs, whose lineup has been depleted by injuries, found themselves in eighth place after the opening day at The Garden with 68.5 points. Pueblo East, Colo., has a 15.5 point lead (168.5 to 153.0) over Kearney, Neb., while Goddard, Newton and Valley Center were in front of the Buffs for the Kansas
contingent. For sophomore Silas Pineda and freshman Trey Medina, the deep runs to the semifinals resulted in tough setbacks at 113 and 145 pounds, respectively. Pineda (22-11) dropped his bout in an 8-1 decision to No. 1 seed Isaiah Gamez of La Junta, Colo. Earlier, Pineda had marched through the bracket, including a win by fall (0:58) over Nathan St. Bernard of Bear Creek, Colo., a 6-4 decision over Goddard’s Lucas Glover and then a quarterfinal triumph, 1-0, over No. 3-seeded Justin Williams of Blue Valley Southwest. Medina (27-13) advanced to his semifinal showdown with an early injury default win and a dramatic 4-2 tiebreak victory over Johnney Perez of Lakin. See BUFFS, A8

GCHS’ Dingle named head coach at Heights Longtime Buffs’ defensive coordinator headed to Wichita By Brett Marshall Sports editor
Before Tuesday, Dominick Dingle had never interviewed for a head football coaching position. But that changed when he traveled to Wichita as a candidate for the Wichita Heights position at one of the state’s storied programs. Dingle, who has been on the football staff at Garden City High School for the past 10 years, will be in a much different place come next fall. On Friday, Dingle realized
his dream when he was named the new Falcons coach by former Heights coach and now athletic director
Rick Wheeler. “There really hasn’t been anything that I felt I was having to have as far as coaching goes,” Dingle said Friday. “But it’s been a goal of mine for a long time. I’ve been a loyal coach and I’ve gotten so much from the community in Garden City. It will be really difficult to say goodbye to the Buffaloes.” Dingle, a 2002 graduate of Leavenworth High School, played defensive back in 2002
and 2003 for Garden City Community College under head coach Bob Larson and position coach Tim Schaffner, now head coach at Butler Community College. Upon his graduation from GCCC, Dingle transferred to Appalachian State in North Carolina, where he starred for a pair of NCAA 1-AA FCS championship teams. “He came with a lot of recommendations from people I know and trust, coaches I’ve known for many years, part of my network,” Wheeler said. Dingle said he chose to apply for the Heights position because of the program’s reputation and for the ability to work for somebody like Wheeler, who guided Heights to a couple of state
championships. “They’ve got a great administration, they’ve got good assistant coaches and they sold their vision to me,” Dingle said of his Tuesday trip to Wichita for the interview. “Rick Wheeler is a terrific coach and person, so I’m looking forward to working for him.” Dingle, 33, said that while growing up as an Army brat, Garden City had come to feel like home, having been with the Buffaloes longer than any other position. “The people were very welcoming, and they were awesome throughout the entire process,” Dingle said. “It just felt like home.” Dingle has primarily served on
the defensive side of the ball for head coach Brian Hill, specializing in the secondary. “Coach Hill has been terrific to me,” Dingle said. “He’s given me a lot of responsibility for the defense so I feel blessed to have that experience.” Dingle also played for Hill when Hill was on the staff at GCCC. “That was one of the toughest calls and talks I’ve had,” Dingle said of his visit with his now former boss. “I made calls to a couple of other people who have been influential in my life and in my career.” His departure comes with a sense of pride for Hill.

Holcomb girls shut down SW Heights By Kevin Thompson Staff writer
Fresh off a third-place finish last weekend at the Hillsboro tournament, the Holcomb girls looked to end their seven-game road trip with another win and a winning record. They got it, a 37-29 at Southwestern Heights, moving to 7-6 for the season — and happy to make a return to their home court Tuesday. After a slow start (2-2 in the first four minutes), the Longhorns ended the first period with an 11-2 run, including a pair of 3s in that stretch. There was a little less scoring in the second, but Holcomb led 20-8 at intermission, forcing the Mustangs into 12 turnovers
on 16 possessions in the second (17 in the half). Holcomb got up by as much as 19 points in the final period (37-18 midway into the period), and they watched the Mustangs chip that down to 37-26 with just under two minutes to play. Heights resorted to hacka-’Horn in the final minute to put Holcomb at the line. Eboni Sapien missed the front end of her bonus, and Heights followed with a 3-pointer. Courtney Wren missed her front end, and Heights got another shot at the end, but it fell short and the Longhorns had the win, despite not converting a field goal in the final 4:30. Sapien led a balanced Holcomb scoring attack with 10 points, and Madi Ruda and
Wren both added nine. Holcomb also had just 12 turnovers, while Heights finished with 26. The ‘Horns scored 16 of their 37 points following Mustang turnovers. Heights scored just six points following a turnover. Coach Nathan Novack was happy to close out the road run with the win. “It was physical,” he said of this game. “They made things difficult for us. They weren’t backing down on anything. They pressured the ball, our first pass. Defensively, that’s something we need.” Holcomb earned the win, though the ‘Horns didn’t shoot particularly well, he added. “We had a comfortable lead the majority of the game, and
still shoot that bad (15 of 50) against an aggressive defense — I feel pretty pleased with how the girls ended up,” Novack said, referencing his team’s ability to turn the Mustangs over. “That was a huge key, too. We really made it difficult for them. We put them in bad situations on the sideline, even just trying to get the ball in sometimes. We sped them up and they were trying to throw passes off the dribble. When you do that, you’re more than likely not accurate.” Brittney Jennings led Heights with 11 points and 10 rebounds. The Mustangs fall to 5-6. Holcomb (7-6) hosts Hugoton Tuesday and travels to Ulysses Friday for a pair of GWAC games.

Jurgens said it’s always a confidence boost when he wrestles in the Welton, so it’s something to build on for the upcoming regional and state tournaments. “You get to see where your game is and the things you need to work on to get better,” Jurgens said. “You definitely get to see what it’s like in a big tournament, and it’s just a good experience.” It was Hayes' second straight year to come up one match short of the title bout, but he took it in stride considering Fisher is now 27-0 and the No. 1-ranked wrestler in Kansas for all classes. “There’s a reason he’s ranked No. 1,” Hayes said following the match. “We’d wrestled a lot when we were younger,

but I hadn’t seen him since I was like 10 or 12 years old. I’ve definitely got some things to improve — getting better angles and working on my shots to where they’re not just straight on. I’ve got to be more creative with them.” Fully aware that the Nos. 1, 4 and 6 seeds in his weight are all top-rated, Hayes said he’d have to be better Saturday if he wants to take a repeat third place. “You've got to be on your A-game here, and can’t make many mistakes,” Hayes said. “When you come here, you have to kind of set a new standard. Third is pretty good here, where first is what you look for at just a regular tournament. No matter who you’re wrestling, it’s gonna be tough.” Hayes had earlier won all three bouts by falls, including one over rival Tanner Johnson of Holcomb, when he earned the pin at the 3:32 mark of the second period.

Medina, who has steadily improved all season, couldn’t get the key points against senior Dallas Boone of Valley Center, falling by a 6-2 decision. The two, who are part of a strong underclassmen group for the Buffs, just couldn’t muster enough in the semis to reach Saturday’s championship matches. “My first matches went really well, but that last match I think I was just exhausted,” Pineda said. “He’s just got a lot more strength than I have right now. I’ve got to learn to do a better job of managing my weight and to be more healthy.” Pineda said that Gamez was exceptionally tough on his feet. “His shots were hard to defend,” Pineda said. “I think I got to worrying more about my weight than just going out and winning. The whole tournament is tough. There’s no cakewalk.” Medina, the younger brother of the late Braxston Medina, who was tragically shot and killed in September 2011, reached the semis with a stunning 6-5 decision over No. 2-seeded Sam

the end of eight teams being paired for head-to-head competition, where they competed in a best 2-of-3 format in Baker play (5 bowlers, 2 frames each, but not rolled consecutively). After losing the first game against Northwest (151-201), which had beaten top seeded Campus in the semis, the Buffs responded with a 170147 win to set up the final game to determine the tournament champion. And again, the Buffs were dominant, winning 210-173. “It was quite an interesting series because one game, we had 6 strikes but no spares… and we lost the game,” Nichols said. “But after that, I thought the girls bowled

Earlier, he had to go to a tiebreak in the win over Lakin’s Perez. “That kid (Boone) is really good with his technique,” Medina said after his tough loss. “I’ve just got to work a little harder, clean some things up and just work on certain things.” Medina said he was happy with the way the day’s overall matches had gone, now with an eye on a potential third-place finish. “You just learn to never stop in the match,” Medina said of one of his takeways from the matches. “If you’re down, you just don’t quit. I want to make my family proud. Even now, after losing, I like where I am. This is such a great tournament and I just want to finish as high as possible.” In his first Welton, Medina said it had been fun to go up against a talented field. “I’ve got to see a lot of great wrestlers and just trying to learn as much as I can,” he said. “As a freshman, this has been really good for me.” The tournament resumes Saturday with consolation round matches at 8:30 a.m. Championship, third-place and fifth-place matches are slated to start at approximately 4:30 p.m.
exceptionally well.” In one stretch of that final 210, the Larson team put together four consecutive strikes, and then junior Ryleigh Whitehurst finished it off with three straight strikes in the 10th frame. In the semifinals of match play, the Buffs won the first game against Wichita East (150-148), lost the second (173-178) before winning the deciding third game (192-178). The quarterfinal match-up against Junction City saw the Buffs falter 133-169 before rallying to win 185-146 and then 180-160. Three matches, three third and deciding games, and three wins for the Buffs. Tough as could be.

The Buffs earned a No. 3 seed for the match play by a combination of a threegame series where the top five scores counted, and then each team bowled 12 games of the Baker format. In the three-game series, Karly Larson (209-163-167) and Alexis Leon (211-136192) shared top honors for the team at 539. Whitehurst was right behind at 538 (195-208-135) with Faith Whited close at 532 (212-173-147). Rounding out the team scores were Emily Giger (173173-137—483) and Angelina Leeper (141-175-175—471). “The balance was really good, and we didn’t have anybody in the top 10 series,” Nichols said. “I think it’s the depth and balance that really showed up today.” Following that the Buffs were in that 12-game Baker marathon.
They rolled games of 135167-197-236 in the first set, 202-158-159-143 in the second set and then 150-171178-171 in the third set. Nichols, who keeps a frame by frame tally on his bowlers in the Baker format to see how they’re faring, said that during the 12-game set, Whitehurst at one point rolled eight consecutive strikes once, six another time and then had two sets of four consecutive strikes. The GPIT turns to the boys side for Saturday’s competition. First ball will be thrown at 8:45 a.m. And the format is the same for the boys as it is for the girls. “Not much late stuff tonight,” Nichols said of the early bedtime. “The boys are tired, too, from cheering on the girls. It will be the same tomorrow.”

“Dom has been a tremendous asset to our program, to the school and to the community,” Hill said. “He’s a terrific coach and he’s just a great fit for Heights. I’m so happy for him. He was, and is, ready for this move.” Dingle currently is an assistant track coach, working with GCHS sprinters. He also is a physical education teacher and the strength and conditioning coordinator for grades 7 through 12 in USD 457.

Report puts Michigan State athletics under fire By Chris Solari Detroit Free Press
EAST LANSING, Mich. (TNS) — Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis announced his retirement Friday, the same day an explosive ESPN story detailing a number of allegations of sexual assault and violent attacks on women occurred with Spartan football and basketball players. Hollis had been athletic director since he took over for Ron Mason on Jan. 1, 2008. He began his athletics career as a student manager for Jud Heathcote and is a 1985 MSU alum. Hollis’ resignation also comes days after Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics doctor who also was employed by Michigan State, was sentenced to 40 to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing more than 150 girls and young women, including some MSU athletes. “Michigan State University is a great institution and its greatest strengths are the people that call themselves Spartans. Many if not all of those Spartans are hurting, especially the courageous survivors of Larry Nassar’s abuse,” Hollis said Friday. “My heart breaks, my heart breaks thinking about the incomprehensible pain all of them and their families have experienced. Along with many I was brought to tears as I listen to statements. There simply aren’t the right words to express our sympathy.
“Our campus and beyond has been attacked by evil, an individual who broke trust and so much more. As a campus community, we must do everything we can to ensure that this never happens again and make sure that any sexual assault never occurs.” ESPN released an in-depth investigative story about two hours after Hollis’ announcement, and scrutinized the way both football coach Mark Dantonio and basketball coach Tom Izzo handled allegations of sexual assault against their players. ESPN’s report details incidents involving MSU’s football program involving 16 players since Dantonio took over in 2007. Four Spartan football players — Josh King, Donnie Corley and Demetric Vance in a January 2017 incident, and Auston Robertson in an April 2017 incident — were dismissed last year and are facing criminal sexual conduct charges. The ESPN report overlapped a Free Press investigation that began in 2017, which uncovered four more allegations of sexual assault against MSU football players, bringing the total to six cases under Dantonio. Each of the four incidents were investigated by authorities, but no charges were filed. The Free Press investigation found 11 players were accused in the six cases on Dantonio’s watch since 2007.
The four sexual assault allegations run countercurrent to what Dantonio said in June when he discussed the two sexual assault cases opened against four of his players. “We’ve been here 11 years. It’s not happened previously,” Dantonio said. “This has been a little bit of a learning experience. As you all know, when you look across the country right now, there are issues. There are issues that need to be explored, and people need to continue to be educated. You do the very best that you can do in that endeavor.” Attempts to contact Dantonio on Friday were not immediately successful. Hollis in June said the athletic department rarely deals with sexual assault cases. “To the best of my recollection,” he said, “there is just a few where there has been allegations.” Asked then if his department has a policy to immediately suspend any athlete being investigated for sexual assault, Hollis said: “I think there’s a wide variety of issues that you could look at where a suspension would be in play.” “Generally, when a university becomes aware of a situation that involves a legal remedy, what you want to do is allow those student-athletes have full energy to resolve that,” Hollis said. “At the same time, you
Kansas’ Newman regains confidence Sophomore guard coming off back-toback 20-point games
Kansas guard Malik Newman shoots a three over Baylor guard King McClure during the ﬁrst half of Saturday night’s game at Allen Fieldhouse.
By Matthew Galloway email@example.com
LAWRENCE — Are Kansas basketball fans finally seeing the real Malik Newman? The sophomore guard isn’t ready to say that yet himself, but he did make one declaration Thursday. “I can say it’s a better Malik Newman than you guys have been seeing,” Newman said. “I mean, it was about getting my confidence back and just going out, playing and trying to make winning plays.” True form or not, Newman has of late shown the skillset that made him a five-star recruit and Rivals’ eighthranked player nationally in the Class of 2015. It’s a roll the Jackson, Miss., native will look to continue when the No. 5-ranked Jayhawks (16-4) host Texas A&M (13-7) at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse. It at times seemed doubtful Newman would ever reach his ceiling at KU. He laid an egg in KU’s third conference contest, a victory at TCU in which Newman scored just one point on 0-for-2 shooting and committed four fouls in 15 minutes. That rock-bottom effort followed two earlier instances where true freshman Marcus Garrett supplanted Newman in the starting lineup — Nov. 10 against Tennessee State and Dec. 29 at Texas. After a rocky freshman campaign with Mississippi State before his transfer to Lawrence, one could imagine frustration setting in for the former McDonald’s All-American. Newman, though, tried to keep his slump in perspective. “It’s basketball,” Newman said. “It’s going to be a lot of ups and downs. There’s times where you’re going to be all the way up and times where you’re going to struggle, so I just try not to get down on myself. I knew that it was fixable. “It wasn’t like it was the end of the world or anything like that. I just wanted to come out and just bring my game each and every night.” That process began in the Jayhawks’ first game after the win against the Horned Frogs, a five-point home victory over Iowa State in which Newman scored a career-high 27 points. While the volume it took to get there irked the guard — he went 10 for 21 from the floor and 5 for 13 from 3-point range — it was good enough to earn Newman the Big 12 newcomer of the week award. Newman has become a bit of a closer since that contest.
[CHRIS NEAL/ THE CAPITALJOURNAL]
His pair of free-throw makes with 15 seconds left broke a tie and gave the Jayhawks a home victory over Kansas State in their next contest. He’s also coming off of back-to-back 20-point efforts against Baylor and at Oklahoma, scoring 12 of the Jayhawks’ final 14 points in the comeback victory over the Bears to finish with 24 points on 7-for-11 shooting. Finding his confidence, Newman said, was a process that began with a look in the mirror. “It just took time,” he said. “I do think a lot of good was done in practice, just getting extra reps in, doing things I knew I was capable of doing and seeing myself doing it and realizing, ‘Man, this is what I should be doing, what I’m supposed to be doing,’ and just carrying it over to the game.” Coach Bill Self and Newman’s teammates took a mostly hands-off approach in letting the guard fight through the funk himself, another key in helping him rediscover his aggressiveness. Self has long said Newman is the best player on the team at finding his own shot, and that’s shown of late in the latter’s ability to finish at the rim. “I think that was one of the most important things when I was going through my little phase,” said Newman, who is averaging 11.8 points on 44.9 percent shooting this season. “They didn’t really pressure me to hurry up and find myself or anything like that. They worked with me each and every day and it was just being patient. They kept confidence in me.” One area the former top recruit has almost always contributed this season has been rebounding, a bit of a surprise from the 6-foot-3 Newman.

more than doing his part to augment arguably the team’s biggest weakness through 20 games. “Not being able to go to the offensive rebound, just being able to defensive rebound, I kind of have surprised myself,” Newman said. “With guys like Udoka (Azubuike), athletic guys like Lagerald (Vick) and Svi (Mykhailiuk), and then you’ve got people like me and Devonte’ (Graham), the smallest people on the court, going in and getting rebounds. It did kind of surprise me how good I’ve rebounded this year.” Unfortunately for the Jayhawks, Newman’s ascent has coincided with another player’s tailspin. Vick has been held to a single-digit point total in six of the team’s last seven contests, the lone outlier a 10-point effort against K-State. He’s averaging 6.6 points on 36.5 percent shooting and 4.1 rebounds over that stretch. Working off his own experience, Newman is optimistic about Vick’s immediate future. “Lagerald’s a great player. I think it would be the same thing for him,” Newman said. “If he is going through it I think he’d be able to change it soon. Maybe it’s just that one day in practice or one half maybe with Lagerald. “Right now he is kind of struggling, but I’m pretty sure he’ll be able to turn it around soon.”
want to ensure that you continue on with the medical and educational opportunities they have to be successful and healthy.” ESPN also detailed two incidents that allegedly involved former MSU point guard Travis Walton that were made during his time as a student assistant coach for Izzo during the 200910 season, in which the Spartans went to the Final Four. Walton reportedly punched a woman in the face at a bar in one incident. Walton, along with two members of the basketball team, also were alleged to have sexually assaulted a different woman off campus, according to ESPN. The network said no police charges were filed in that case, but reported the woman went to Hollis with the allegations that she was raped. According to records obtained by the Free Press, Keith Appling and Adreian Payne were accused of sexually assaulting a woman during the fall of their freshman year in 2010. Dunnings declined to press charges in the matter, citing insufficient evidence. In 2015, the Office for Civil Rights determined MSU’s handling of some Title IX cases had created a “hostile environment” on campus for individuals who complained about relationship violence or sexual misconduct. The federal oversight agency also found that there was confusion among MSU’s athletic department staff about who
should report sexual assault claims to the university’s investigation office. In the two most recent cases, law firm Jones Day investigated and found Dantonio followed the policy and procedures for employees to report suspected sexual assaults to the university’s Office of Institutional Equity. The OIE handles Title IX investigations into cases involving relationship violence and sexual assault allegations. Izzo has been MSU’s head basketball coach since 1995 and has been on the Spartans coaching staff since 1983, when Hollis was a student manager for Heathcote. MSU is currently under investigation by the NCAA for how it handled the Nassar allegations, and Hollis said in a statement Wednesday that MSU would “cooperate with any investigation.” “Since my first day on the job as athletic director, my focus has always been on the student-athlete,” Hollis said Wednesday. “They are at the core of our athletic department mission statement,” Hollis said. “Our first priority has always been and will always be their health and safety. In regards to the letter we received from the NCAA last night, the athletic compliance and university general counsel offices are preparing a comprehensive response.”
No peeking: Wildcats vow not to look ahead to KU clash Wildcats hope to bolter nonconference resume with win vs. Georgia By Tim Bise firstname.lastname@example.org
Barry Brown, one of the Big 12’s straightest shooters in recent weeks, wasn’t about to be disingenuous. Sure, Brown admitted, it is tempting for him and the Kansas State Wildcats to peek ahead to Monday’s Big 12 showdown against rival Kansas — a game that suddenly has league title implications. But Brown also understands K-State (15-5, 5-3 Big 12) has more immediate — and, at least for now, important — concerns with a dangerous Georgia team set to visit Manhattan’s Bramlage Coliseum at 1 p.m. Saturday as part of the Big 12/ SEC Showdown. “It’s pretty tough (not to look ahead),” Brown said, “but like Dean (Wade) said, you’ve got to be in the present. You’ve got to worry about what’s now and then what’s next. One game at a time. “I’ve been trying to stress that to our guys, just to worry about Georgia because it’s still a big win.” That message also is being conveyed by coach Bruce Weber and his staff. A win against the Bulldogs (12-7, 3-5 SEC) would strengthen the Wildcats’ nonconference resume and apply at least a little makeup to the unsightly blemish that resulted from K-State’s 61-54 loss to Tulsa in early December. “I’ve emphasized since we got on the bus after Baylor, ‘This is the most important game of the year,’ ” Weber said. “It really is. To protect home court, solidify your nonconference, get a good win against a pretty good RPI team that potentially is an NCAA team — it’s the most important game. “That’s got to be the main focus.” Under former K-State assistant Mark Fox, Georgia has lost four of five, including an 80-77 double-overtime setback to Arkansas on Tuesday. Still, the Bulldogs should have K-State’s attention after splitting a recent home-and-home series that saw Georgia win at Bramlage in 2014 and the Wildcats return the favor Dec. 21, 2015, in Athens on a game-winner from Wade. Georgia also features 6-foot-8 forward Yante Maten, the SEC’s Preseason Player of the Year. Maten tops the SEC in scoring at 19.9 points per game and ranks second in rebounding at 9.4. Guards William Jackson and Juwan Parker back Maten with

averages of 9.7 and 8.2 points, and the Bulldogs enter with a No. 58 RPI, four spots lower than K-State. “Georgia’s good,” Wade said. “I think it’d be a big win for us if we can get it. “I’m pretty excited. They have a couple pretty good players and I’m excited to see how we do against them.” K-State has a couple pretty good players in its own right — namely Brown and Wade. The Wildcats have won three straight and four of five, thanks largely to the elevated play of that junior duo since point guard Kamau Stokes suffered a foot injury on Jan. 6. Brown and Wade are second and third in scoring in the Big 12 since the beginning of conference play, with Brown scoring at a 22.8-point clip and Wade close behind at 20.3. They also rank among league leaders in field goal percentage (Wade fourth at .606, Brown 10th at .518) and 3-point percentage (Wade second at .536, Brown 11th at .405). Brown also is one of the league’s top defenders, ranking second in steals (2.5 per game). “Barry Brown and Dean Wade are first-team all-conference guys right now, if the balloting were today,” Baylor coach Scott Drew said Monday night after watching the pair combine for 58 points in a 90-83 win against his Bears. But remember, Saturday isn’t about the Big 12. And it certainly isn’t about Kansas. All that will have to wait until Monday. This is K-State vs. Georgia. It’s the Big 12 vs. the SEC. It’s the here and now — nothing more, nothing less. Wade said K-State’s coaches constantly implore the Wildcats “to be where your feet are at,” a reminder to stay in the present and not look too far ahead or behind. Brown insisted that is exactly what he and his teammates intend to do. “Maybe it is a good break away from the Big 12 for some of our guys to play someone different, someone new we haven’t seen,” Brown said. “Maybe it will relieve some of our guys. “We’ll still come out with that same fire, but maybe it’s good break from the 12.”

Coming off a tournament win in Hillsboro last week, the Holcomb Longhorns wanted to continue their hot play. They traveled to Southwestern Heights, their seventh straight road game, and the result was the same, a 66-32 win over the Mustangs. It was Holcomb’s 16th win in 17 games against Heights, with its only loss occurring in 2010. Holcomb started hot, taking a 21-6 lead after the first quarter on nineof-17 shooting, with Kobe Dickson scoring six of his eight points in the period on offensive putbacks. Heights started the second quarter with four 3-point plays to close the gap to 27-18, but the ‘Horns responded with a 9-2 run to close out the half, leading 38-20. By halftime, Holcomb was 17 of 34 from the floor, while the Mustangs were just 8 of 23. A 12-7 third period (Parker Jantz hit a buzzer three) gave the ‘Horns a 50-27 lead. Holcomb got the 30-point running clock at the 3:30 mark in the final period, when Dickson put back Carter Blackburn’s miss for a 59-29 lead, and the Longhorns closed out the game with a 7-0 run for the win. Dickson led the ‘Horns with 21 points, including a 3-pointer on his final shot. He also had 15 rebounds. Trey Gilbert finished with 18 points, all from inside the line. Holcomb shot 30 of 56 from the floor (five of 16 behind the arc), but only one of seven from the freethrow line. They also outrebounded Heights 41-14, including 15-1 on the offensive end. Coach Chad Novack was happy with the win, and the way his team competed following the win at the tough Hillsboro tournament last week. “I thought we played pretty well for the most

We came out with a lot of energy, we passed the ball extremely well, rebounded the ball on the offensive side, and we held them to six points.” Second period, not as good, he noted, when the Mustangs went on their short run. “Same thing that’s happened at times this year, when we relaxed a little bit and had some

unforced turnovers,” Novack said. “We didn’t play bad, but overall, our kids played extremely well and extremely hard.” This was a good game to play following the mid-season tournament, he said. “We’ve talked about how this could be a trap game,” he said. “And these guys didn’t let that happen tonight.” Shooting just five of 16 from outside was
disappointing, Novack noted, but his team found other means of scoring. “When you’re not shooting the ball well, you have to make an extra pass to get a better shot, number one,” he said. “And number two, rebound. Our kids did.” Heights (5-6), which entered the game averaging 63 points a game, highlighted Holcomb’s defensive effort, which limited the Mustangs to just 13 of 38 from the floor and 1 of 4 from the free throw line. Leading scorer Raul Alvarado, averaging 17 points a game, had just six on a pair of three-pointers. Efren Mercado had nine points to pace the Mustangs. Holcomb (12-1) will host Hugoton Tuesday and travel to Ulysses Friday to continue conference play.

The scoring as a team was up. The balance on the offensive side of the court was improved. Turnovers were down. Still, the Garden City High School girls basketball team couldn’t convert that improvement into a victory Friday, falling 54-46 to Andover Central in the consolation bracket of the 42nd Newton Invitational. The Buffs trailed by just one, 40-39, heading to the fourth quarter against the No. 7-ranked team in Kansas Class 4A-I. But they could manage just seven points over the final eight minutes while Central finished with 14 points to secure the eightpoint triumph. “Overall, we were just better,” GCHS coach
Matt Pfeifer said. “We were more consistent in everything we did. The effort was better and we rebounded the ball better.” The loss drops the Buffs to 4-8 overall, and they will play in the 1 p.m. Saturday game for seventh place against Western Athletic Conference rival Dodge City, which lost to Wichita-Kapaun Mt. Carmel in the other consolation bracket game. After trailing 15-12 at the end of the first quarter, the Buffs outscored the Jaguars 16-10 in the second to go up 28-25 at intermission. Included in that second period surge, the Buffs went on a 10-0 run, produced by solid defense that transitioned into better shots on the offensive end. “The defensive intensity was so much better,” Pfeifer said. “Everything

hen redheaded Scott Thompson, aka Carrot Top, told his friends he wanted to get into the comedy business, they laughed at him. He thought that was a really good sign! Now, after major success for a couple of decades, he says that when he gets older and turns gray, heâ€™ll change his name to Cotton Top. He never thought of dying his hair green, we guess, even though thatâ€™s the color of actual carrot tops. And they are, like the orange (and now multicolored) roots, packed with serious nutrition. â€œSuperfood.â€? That word gets tossed around a lot, but researchers have found that carrots are packed with powerful phytochemicals that are antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and anticancer (for example, research has found that they may help fight the recurrence of breast cancer). Interestingly, the powerful punch of disease-fighting chemicals is greatest in white carrots, followed by orange, purple and yellow. Well, at least orange is second. Carrots also deliver beta (and alpha) carotene, essential for forming vitamin A in your body. That vitamin promotes eye, skin, mucous membrane and immune system health. As for carrot greens; they add great flavor when sprinkled into chicken broth or salsas. And according to the UKâ€™s Carrot Museum (we kid you not!), these greens contain six times more vitamin C than the root, and lots of potassium and calcium. We recommend organic carrot tops. Juiced, grilled, sliced into a salad or a soup, various colored carrots can help you top off your dayâ€™s nutrition; the greens are an added bonus.

Love of a woman puts smile back on son’s face Patrick Murphy
couple years ago my son, Alek, called and said he was dating a girl from Iowa who loves Pizza King. I told him I had never been more proud of him. He’s topped that. He asked that girl from Iowa, who loves Pizza King, to marry him, and she said yes.
There’s no date set yet, but Alek and Anna are making plans for sometime in 2019. We celebrated last week — at Pizza King, of course — with her family, and if dinner was any indication, the good times are just beginning. As a parent you want certain things for your children — health, happiness and success in whatever they do. Alek has checked those boxes. When he was growing up, I loved watching Alek play baseball. It wasn’t because he was good, it was because
he was happiest on the ball diamond. He never smiled as much as when he was on a baseball field. That was where he found joy. People probably thought I loved watching him play just because he was good, but I enjoyed watching him because I knew he was happy. There was a sense of confidence, a feeling of security and comfort for him when he walked onto a baseball field. Little did he know that those feelings were fleeting. An arm injury took baseball away from
him. I’ll never forget the conversation we had the night he called me from college and said he couldn’t do it anymore. His arm had betrayed him and took his smile with it. He wasn’t the same kid for a while. Everything he had worked for was gone; his plans changed; all the hours he put into the sport seemed to be for nothing. At the same time, Alek was winding his way through college, trying to find the right career. He tried a few majors, but nothing seemed to fit. He finally settled
on one, which led him in another direction. It’s funny how we think our lives are going a certain way and they end up in another completely different direction. That’s where Anna comes in, and that’s when his smile returned. He was finally able to put baseball behind him and move on with his life, and that life now includes the girl from Iowa who loves Pizza King. Just one look at those two together and you know they belong. The planning is already under way. There is a date to
be set, a dress will be chosen, the wedding party will be organized, the place for the nuptials, reception and the list goes on. There will be lots of suggestions, and they will get a lot of advice along the way. The fun is just beginning for my boy and his girl from Iowa, who loves Pizza King.

HINTS FROM HELOISE
Replacing a beloved pet
The lingering scent of mothballs
Annie Lane DEAR ANNIE: Our
beloved family dog, Dasher, passed away last year. Dasher was a husky. She was the sweetest and best dog I ever could imagine. When I contacted the breeder I bought her from, he said that he is no longer breeding. My friend suggested I look at adopting a dog from the local shelter or a rescue group. I really want a husky, and our shelter didn’t have any but suggested I reach out to local husky rescue groups. Well, I did, and I found a great one. After I filled out the application, a volunteer called me within 24
hours. She thanked me for considering adoption and gave me some very sad statistics about how many dogs get euthanized because of overpopulation. She then said my house will be a tricky place to find the right dog for. Most huskies have a strong prey drive and are not great with cats, small dogs or small children. I was taken aback because Dasher was so great with all of the above. When I told her this, she said my best bet would be to get a puppy and socialize the dog around kids and cats as much as possible. She said that her rescue group rarely gets pups in and that it could take a long time. I want to adopt, but I also don’t want to put the lives of my cat and kids in danger. Do you have any advice as to what I should do? — Adopt or Shop? DEAR AOS: Whenever
possible, adopt; don’t shop. I understand loving a particular breed and wanting a puppy of that breed. You have three options: 1) Wait until the husky rescue gets a puppy in. 2) Go on Petfinder and search for husky puppies. You may have to travel a bit to find a puppy, or it may not be a purebred husky, but chances are great that you can find a husky puppy. 3) If you do decide to buy a puppy, at least be sure you know where you’re buying from. Kristina Lotz wrote a wonderful article for iHeartDogs titled “10 Signs That A Puppy Is From a Puppy Mill,” and I would recommend reading it before buying from a pet shop or breeder. Send your questions for Annie Lane to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Heloise DEAR HELOISE: I bought
a beautiful chest at an auction. It has the smell of mothballs, though, which I can’t remove. Needless to say, everything I store in it smells like mothballs. Is there anything I can do about this problem? — C.D., Monroe, La. C.D., YOU CAN bank on this tried-and-true Heloise helper: Mix equal parts rubbing alcohol and vinegar or lemon juice. Moisten a cloth with this mixture and
wipe out the inside of the chest. Important: Leave the lid open until the chest dries, and for a couple of days after that. Another hint to try is putting a big bowl of baking soda inside the chest, along with some crumpled newspaper. Keep the chest closed for one week. These hints should help lessen the smell of mothballs in your newto-you chest! Thanks for writing in! — Heloise CLEAN LITTER BOX DEAR HELOISE: My cat, Mr. Kitty, likes his litter box immaculate. Most cats are very clean! I’ve found that a thin layer of baking soda under his cat litter keeps the
box fresh-smelling. I still clean it out every day, of course, and scrub it once a week, but the baking soda helps a lot! — Carrie W. in Pittsburgh CARRIE, BAKING SODA
is a workhorse in the home — I’m sure Mr. Kitty would agree! It’s cheap, safe and readily available. REFRIGERATOR REDUX DEAR HELOISE: To check the efficiency of your fridge, close the door on a dollar bill. If you can pull the bill out, your seal is loose, and it’s time to replace it. — Rodney the Refrigerator Man in Illinois

Breaking down barriers
Unique PE class pairs students with special needs peers By Jim Paulsen Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

adapted sports and hands out water for the boysâ€™ basketball team. The addition of the unified PE class has been a vital part of Matthew becoming just a typical student, say his parents, Kevin and Nicole St. John. â€œKids with special needs are very aware of their surroundings. They want to be included. They want to be just like everyone else,â€? Kevin St. John said. Said Nicole: â€œHis activities were always adapted athletics, but it wasnâ€™t until this unified PE class that some of the general ed kids have come to his games to cheer him on.â€? Added Kevin: â€œNow, he canâ€™t go from one classroom to another without 12 people saying hi to him.â€? That enthusiastic response of the general student body has made the unified PE class an unexpected success. Senior Markus Braun is a member of the Wayzata boysâ€™ cross-country team that won the Class 2A team championship last fall. Braun has a great uncle with cerebral palsy and knows the importance of giving to people with special needs, which is why he took unified PE. He never expected how much he would get in return. â€œI wanted to give back, but Iâ€™m getting a lot back, too,â€? he said. â€œYou learn so much. You hear people in the halls say things about them and you think, â€˜Why not be friends with them?â€™ They have social skills. They talk about the same things we all talk about.â€? Maggie Allen is a junior with special needs at Wayzata, and her mom, Penny, credits the class for giving her daughter a chance to experience the everyday lifestyle of a high school student. â€œItâ€™s teaching my daughter independence that I never thought sheâ€™d have,â€? Allen said. â€œShe wants to be like her friends in the class. Sheâ€™ll get a text and say, â€˜Hey, Mom, so-and-soâ€™s picking me up and weâ€™re going to a movie.â€™ Iâ€™m like â€˜You are? Oh, OK.â€™ As a parent, this is not something I thought my child would ever see. It is amazing.â€? Word of the class has spread quickly. Only Wayzata and Proctor, near Duluth, offered unified
Wedding Registry For The Two Of You
PE in 2016-17, but that number is expected to grow to by nearly 50 across Minnesota next year. Edina is one school that added unified PE this year. Mellanie Pusateri is a co-instructor, alongside Tracy Bergo, and is effusive about what the class accomplishes. â€œItâ€™s been much better received than I expected,â€? she said. â€œThe response from the student population has been amazing. It breaks down barriers. Iâ€™ve seen (special needs and general education) kids in the hall exchanging phone numbers. That never would have happened before.â€? With student demand exceeding available class sessions, Schrader and a few others formed Club US (Unified Students). The club organizes social get-togethers, including a snow-tubing excursion that is in the works. As of now, it has nearly 160 students, 130 of them from the general student body. On Jan. 12 members put on choreographed dance routine at halftime of the girlsâ€™ basketball game. Students performed to â€œAll In This Togetherâ€? from the movie â€œHigh School Musicalâ€? and received a standing ovation. A plan is in place to provide fan buses to a couple of adapted floor hockey games. â€œI donâ€™t know if weâ€™ve ever had a fan bus go to an adapted sport,â€? Doyle said. â€œThatâ€™s been the most rewarding thing for me: how happy the parents of the special needs kids are that their sons and daughters are finally getting included in things like dances and going to football games and all of these daily things most kids take for granted.â€? Schrader committed last week to play basketball at the U.S. Naval Academy. Her team is currently undefeated and ranked No. 2 in Class 4A. But itâ€™s the unified PE class and Club US that is her passion. â€œI donâ€™t think anyone will care 20 years from now how many points I scored against Hopkins,â€? Schrader said. â€œThis is the coolest thing I will leave at this school. Iâ€™m excited to see, when I come back, where this is and how itâ€™s grown.

FREE GIFT WRAPPING
MINNEAPOLISÂ â€” Filtering into a final-period physical education class at Wayzata High School in Plymouth, Minn., students put on heart-rate monitors, then mingle quietly until class begins and each finds a partner. The dayâ€™s focus is tennis â€” temporary nets are strung up across the gym floorÂ â€” but first things first. Partners play catch, then deliver the ball on one bounce. Simple, progressive steps follow. Most of the class period is over before physical education instructor Mike Doyle breaks out modified rackets, and they barely get used. To the participants and their families, the seemingly uneventful hourÂ â€” with no sweat involvedÂ â€” marked another rewarding afternoon in what has become one of the schoolâ€™s most sought-after classes. Itâ€™s called unified physical education, and it pairs students with special needs with those of the general population. By all accounts, itâ€™s been wildly successful. Demand for the class has created a waiting list and an after-school club. As many as 50 other high schools in Minnesota have either started or are in the process of starting a similar class. â€œI was part of the first group to take the class last year and after I took it, I was like, â€˜This is so cool,â€™ â€œ said junior Mimi Schrader, a starting point guard for the Wayzata girlsâ€™ basketball team. Doyle came up with the idea when he was teaching basketball to a group of students with special needs. â€œI remember thinking, â€˜Why not get the basketball players to teach basketball?â€™â€? Doyle recalled. â€œI went to a physical education teachers convention and Special Olympics did a presentation on unifying athletes with kids with special needs. It was the same thing I wanted to do.â€? After he put in long hours developing a curriculum, the class was added to the Wayzata course catalog last year. â€œThe fear was creating a class that no one wanted to take,â€? Doyle said. He neednâ€™t have worried. As the year went on, the class grew in popularity, primarily with students from the schoolâ€™s general population. Now, it is in such high demand that it fills up quickly. Originally intended to have 15 general education students per 10 special education students, the class exceeds that by a few kids each session. â€œIt was a surprise, yes, and it was definitely fun to see,â€? Doyle said. â€œItâ€™s bridging the gap between the special education and the general student populations campuswide.â€? While the class itself is the focus, its influence is obvious. Kids with special needs are sprinkled in with the general education students, mainstreamed in ways they never had been before. â€œYou can tell a lot about a school by looking at its lunchroom,â€? Schrader said. â€œBefore the class, youâ€™d see the special needs kids sitting off at their own table, empty chairs around them. Now, theyâ€™re all over the place, chatting with their new friends. And thatâ€™s just one small part of it.â€? Matthew St. John is a senior who has always been one of the more socially outgoing special needs students. He plays

Black And Light One of the many perks of writing a column is being given the opportunity to share what’s new and exciting in the home and lifestyle world. The digital age has sped up changes in all facets of our lives. It’s not just computers and phones. How furnishings are designed and built, the wildly imaginative execution of patterns on fabrics and paper, these have all been touched by the techno age. The universal need to conserve natural resources has pushed the limits of what we accept as practical household products that are also beautiful, fresh and affordable. That’s a big jump, and there is always something new and impressive just around the corner. The lighting industry is one of my favorites to watch. The emergence of power-saving and thus dollar-saving LEDs has challenged the hydro hungry standard wattage light bulbs, and new lighting designs emerged. The first LEDs were a bit harsh, a bright white that didn’t suit many interior needs. Warm whites and colors are now available, as well as LEDs that fit older fixtures. Some LEDs are dimmable, which is a major bonus for controlling the mood in any space. Choices have never been so versatile. Although the price of LEDs is higher than the standard light bulbs, they last for years, so cost is not an issue. Be sure to buy good quality, or you will be disappointed at their performance. Black and white are always an impressive mix. And so is black and light. I discovered this contemporary dining vignette at uplightgroup.com. It has bold, youthful energy. The matte black Pilke pendant lights show off a unique geometric design that is soft and inviting. The award-winning wooden structure from Finland is assembled using interconnected birch plywood parts. The light source is E26LED, a warm white LED globe bulb that twinkles through the slats. Another striking example of black and light is the Fahrenheit pendant by Troy Lighting. A series of nested and tiered cones form an unusual cylindrical shape. The outer cone, finished in textured black satin, frames the inner cones that have hand-applied gold leaf, so that light is reflected in a warm golden hue. It’s available in a one- or three-light LED pendant If you are thinking of introducing the defining presence of matte black to your decor, why not change up a few of your existing lampshades with a dramatic black style? Visit your favorite lighting store or check out what’s new online. At lampsplus.com you’ll find a dizzying array of choices. Their black faux suede shade lined in leopard print introduces exotic themes. Black fabric pleated, trimmed with beads, sparkling with sequins, and shapes large and small range from sophisticated to frilly. A black metal lamp, pendant or chandelier will become a statement piece in your room. As with any new design direction or dramatic change in color, it is always best to experiment. Take your time; drape some black fabric over a lamp to get the feel (don’t leave it too long or you could start a fire). Then go on a search for a pendant light, sconce or bedside light that captures your interest. An unusual shape or style will steal your heart.
