Earthquake shakes all of Kansas The Oklahoma quake was a state record By Travis Mounts

For many people awake Saturday morning – and for lots of people who weren’t until it hit – the latest earthquake to shake the area was the most memorable. A quake near Pawnee, Okla., that measured 5.6 on the Richter scale struck at

7:02 a.m. Saturday and shook south central Kansas for more than a minute. The earthquake was the largest in Oklahoma history. Saturday’s earthquake had a rolling feeling in this area but caused significant damage in north central Oklahoma. Images on social media, in newspapers and on television showed bricks that had fallen off century-old buildings and cracks in homes and businesses. Several images showed items

strewn across the floor of the White’s Foodliner in Pawnee. White’s operated a store in Goddard for many years and still has locations in several Kansas towns, the closest being in Kingman. At least three homes and three businesses in the Pawnee area were reported to have suffered damage. One man suffered minor injuries when part of a fireplace fell on him. Social media exploded in the moments

Joe Cowell sings to students as they arrive for school. Cowell, pastor of First Assembly of God and president of the Cheney Area Chamber of Commerce, greeted students with a selection of popular songs, such as “U Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer and “Roar” by Katy Perry. Some students danced and sang along; others kept their distance. The serenade helped kick off Pride Week at Cheney Elementary. Students also found positive messages written on a board outside the school building. Students wrote their own messages on Wednesday. An assembly is planned for Friday afternoon.

A Goddard man died last week after a Sedgwick County Sheriff ’s deputy shot him in self-defense. Caleb Douglas, 18, was pulled over just after 1 a.m. Thursday on Tyler Road in west Wichita for a traffic violation. Douglas apparently had crossed the center line on several occasions.

Lake Afton Public Observatory reopened Labor Day weekend Lake Afton Public Observatory reopened Labor Day weekend, returning from a year’s hiatus caused by Wichita State’s withdrawal of its longtime support. Eager crowds gazed at stars and planets that cast their lights millions or billions of miles from Earth. The Kansas Astronomical Observers (KAO) led the effort to reopen the observatory as a volunteer-run facility, and leaders of the KAO showed new and returning attractions to members of the media last week. KAO chairman Fred Gassert said that a volunteer model will allow the reorganized observatory to be financially sustainable. “We have no paid salaries, so when you see us out here, we’re doing this on our own,” said Gassert. “The salary base that WSU had was their big expense.” Observatory director Harold Henderson said KAO

Goddard teacher chosen as Art Educator of the Year By Shana Gregory

As a child, Goddard High School art teacher Melanie Huffman didn’t want to be outside playing with the other kids. She wanted to be indoors, dancing, singing and making art. No wonder she grew up to become an art teacher then. Huffman was recently named Secondary Art Educator of the Year by the Kansas Art Education Association. “It’s a really nice feeling when you’re honored,” she said. “It’s a nice thing for people to notice that you’re doing something for your students.” Huffman believes art in the schools can be just as important as math, science engineering. “Art uses a whole different part of the brain,” she said. “It’s absolutely essential to develop it, or you could end up rather narrow-minded. Even if you’re not creative, if you at least have an appreciation for art, and culture, and the fine arts.” Huffman, who has been an art teacher for 29 years, and at Goddard for the past 20, says she tries to be an artist in her off time. “Every person that goes into art is at least artistic,” she said. She’s currently designing her daughter’s bridesmaid dresses, and she also finds old things and makes them beautiful again, repurposing things she finds at garage sales and the Goodwill store.

Melanie Huffman, far left, was named Secondary Art Educator of the Year by the Kansas Art Education Association, a group whose membership is comprised of Huffman’s fellow art teachers. Huffman has been teaching for 29 years and has taught art at Goddard High School for the past 20 years.

“I remake things, reinvent them,” she said. “Part of my personality is to make something old new and fresh again.” She said she does a lot of projects for her old students, like buying an old basket and painting a design on the side in the colors of the nursery for a baby shower, or with the team colors for a wedding gift for a couple. She also makes scrapbook she starts for a couple getting married, using the wedding invitation in the design on the front. She painted this summer, though she said it

was just something silly for school to decorate her classroom with. In that classroom, she teaches everyone from basic drawing for students taking their first art class to Advanced Placement students, who she calls her “kids,” and who leave the school with 26 finished projects in a portfolio to take to college. “I’ll teach them drawing and how to draw realistically,” she said. “We do as many different projects as we can. Of all the thousands of kids I’ve taught, I think I can teach anybody to draw. Art is just learning how

to see things,” she continued. “For the most part, people stop developing artistically by the sixth grade, unless they’re interested or have instruction.” Huffman’s classroom is all about practice, practice, practice, and she says she’s never understood why people expect to be able to draw artistically “We don’t expect anybody else to do that. We don’t expect the football team to go to State without practice. We don’t expect the band to go to a conference without practice. But we expect people to go out and draw without practice.” Right now, she said her

first-year students are doing a self-portrait with a twist, inspired by an MC Escher drawing. Technology plays a part in her art projects bringing apps into the classroom. “It’s kind of a cool thing,” she said. “You can take a selfie and apply an app to it and then draw it. It’s so much easier than it used to be. There are all these funky things. Sometimes technology is wonderful and sometimes it’s not so wonderful, but it can help get ideas. So I guess they’ve had a little help, but it’s really cool. Sometimes I’m like, ‘Show me how you did that.’”

Ultimately, Huffman believes art benefits students more than they can sometimes imagine. “If you only take science, technology, engineering, you’ve got all these left-brained people walking around. But I’ve had so many valedictorians in my AP class, literally gifted in math and technology, but also having this creative need. And they are just stifled without the opportunity to explore it. They just feel lost. And art can complete them.” Huffman will be presented her award Oct. 7 in Rock Springs, Kan.

The water is safe for humans, but pets are still banned from the lake. Fishing requirements remain the same – if you keep and clean fish from the lake, use the filet only and throw everything else away. The lake will be tested every two weeks.

The new church building for Assembly At Goddard is being constructed behind the existing structure. Assembly At Goddard is located on the west edge of Goddard, on the north side of U.S. 54.

Assembly at Goddard builds new church By Shana Gregory

GODDARD – Two years ago, they started planning. And in a few short months, the Assembly At Goddard church will have a new building to worship in every Sunday. The 11,000 square foot building is located directly behind the current church, so right off, those driving by might notice the difference in size. “The old building could fit inside the sanctuary of this building,” said Todd Mounte, parishioner and foreman for Danny Satterfield Drywall Corporation, who’s constructing the new building. “We pretty much outgrew that little building and the two an-

nexes with it.” In fact, they outgrew it so much that, even though there were plenty of chairs, they filled quickly, and Sunday services were usually standing room only. The building, which will be done in September, will then take three weeks to get the sound system installed, and the grand opening will be in late October. The new church has some distinct improvements over the current one, which consists only of a sanctuary and one room for the nursery. The new building includes a large sanctuary and six small rooms. It

has a children’s wing with a nursery room, a separate room for toddlers and another for youth. Crews are also constructing a kitchen in the new church, with a large room for tables and Saturday morning breakfasts. “We’ll have enough room for everybody and we’ll all be comfortable,” Mounte said. The new structure will have a custom lighting system that can go from one extreme to the next. “During services, the lights can be dim or can be switched to bright white,” Mounte said. The sanctuary, with a 27foot exposed beam ceiling, will only be at around 70

percent capacity. “It won’t completely fill up,” Mounte, who’s friends with Brian Folden, the pastor of the church, said. “But Pastor B sometimes talks about a second phase that may be built. He always says if he starts planning now, it’ll be two years before it happens.” The current church will be kept for a while, and then Mounte said the plan is to tear it down. “It’s just a simple, straightforward building,” Mounte said. “It’s nothing fancy by any means, but it is modern for sure. I’m excited to go to church with my family and come out here every Sunday.”

Crews are busy working on the interior of the new church building for Assembly At Goddard. The new facility should be ready in a couple months.

day’s earthquake was 10 percent larger than the 2011 temblor. Based on aftershocks, the earthquake happened along a fault that was previously unknown to scientists but is now active. It intersects with another fault line running through Pawnee that was known. The reach of the earthquake was huge. Reports said the quake was felt south to Dallas and Little Rock, north to Des Moines and Omaha, and west to Denver. The shaking in south central Kansas was especially pronounced because of the relative proximity to the epicenter. Pawnee is located between Ponca City and Stillwater. Several government agencies in this area planned to check bridges and other structures this week for possible damage. It’s not yet known if the earthquake was caused by the injection into the ground of wastewater from oil drilling operations, although scientists said there were similarities to earlier quakes thought to have been linked. Regulators in Oklahoma on Saturday shut down 37 wastewater disposal wells tied to the oil and gas produc-

tion industry. The Oklahoma Geological Survey has said the increase in quakes in the Sooner State – known as the “Oklahoma Earthquake Swarm” – is likely tied to injection wells, where a brine of water and chemicals is shot into the ground under high pressure. The brine is a byproduct of oil and gas production. In a few short years, Oklahoma went from an average of two earthquakes per year that measured 3.0 or higher, to more than 900 earthquakes in 2015. Kansas has seen an increase as well, primarily in Harper and Sumner counties, although the increase in earthquakes and their strength has been much less than in Oklahoma. South central Kansas residents often feel the effects of earthquakes that strike north central Oklahoma. On Aug. 19, a 3.5 earthquake hit about 3-1/2 miles southwest of Cheney, and a couple of aftershocks also were felt. From Aug. 21 through Labor Day, seven other earthquakes have been recorded in Kansas. Three were around Anthony, two near Caldwell and one each near Derby and Ellis. All ranged from 2.1 to 2.9.

that “Caleb’s own actions ended his life too soon.” They did not blame the officer for his handling of the situation. According to reports and to the family’s statement, Douglas struggled with personal issues that apparently included drugs. He attended school at Eisenhower High School and, after spending time at Boys Town in Nebraska, graduated from Goddard Academy. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation is helping with the investigation. Douglas’ funeral was held on Wednesday. Following is the statement issued by the Doug-

las family: “The family of 18-yearold Caleb Douglas mourns the loss of their son, brother and grandson. Caleb, son of local Accident Recovery Team attorney Norman Douglas, was killed Thursday, Sept. 1, after pointing a hand gun at a Sedgwick County deputy during an encounter, causing the deputy to fire his own weapon in self-defense. “Norman, his wife Jennifer and their remaining children remember Caleb as a caring, loving soul, but acknowledge that his troubles were a concern. They are devastated that Caleb’s own actions ended his life too soon. “The family is cooperating with the Sedgwick County Sheriff ’s Department, and they have the utmost confidence in the men and women in-

vestigating the case. The Douglas family expects to see the situation resolved quickly and properly. In the meantime, the family asks that the media and

public respect their privacy as they grieve. “The family appreciates your concern, prayers and condolences during this difficult time.”

Cotton to play for Independence By Shana Gregory

CLEARWATER Clearwater High School senior Trent Cotton has been playing baseball since he could pick up a bat and toss the ball around. “It’s a challenging sport,” he said. “Not a sport a lot of people can play. It’s not like football, where you can get mad and still have success by going and hitting somebody. With baseball if you get mad, you’ve got to forget about what just happened and move on to the next play. You’ve got to have some control of emotion. You’ve got to have some smarts.” Recently, he signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Independence Community College. Cotton, an outfielder, made the decision to play ball at a college-level at the beginning of high school, and had been talking to the school since the end of February. “They had signed quite a few guys I knew, and those guys were pretty good, so I felt like Independence would be a pretty good ball team to go play for,” Cotton said. “They did pretty good this year with all the signings they had. I think there’s 53 guys on our team, and you can only have 35 or so.” In addition to playing for Clearwa-

ter, Cotton played with the Wichita Stars this summer. The highlight of his baseball career was during a game against Mulvane this year. “It was a one run game and I dove for a ball and was completely airborn and completely stretched out, and I ended up catching it,” Cotton said. “I’d say that was one of the biggest

moments for me, one of the best plays I’ve ever made.” He is undecided in his course of study but will major in liberal arts. He’s been thinking about careers in law enforcement, landscaping or becoming a baseball coach. “If it wasn’t for my mom and dad, my goals might not have been achieved,” he said.

CHENEY – A public meeting last week gave local residents a look at how parkland at the south end of Cheney may develop over the next five to 20 years. The meeting was sponsored by the Cheney Recreation Commission and the city of Cheney. Roughly three dozen people attended the meeting. Cheney Recreation director Brent Peintner told the crowd that the creation of the master plan was guided by previous public meetings and an online survey. “We’ve had a lot of input,” he said. “We hope to show that we listened to the community.” Peintner and other local officials stressed that the master plan is not a finalized plan, but rather a guide that is subject to change over time. For most of the plan, funding has not been secured. Officials said the park will likely be built as a serious of individual projects. The park is a joint effort between Cheney Recreation, the city and the Cheney School District. The first phase of the park is the new baseball and softball fields that opened earlier this year. The fields were built as part of the most recent school bond project. A concession stand will be built by the school district as well. Land to the north of the ball fields is owned by the recreation commission. The master plan calls for two multi-use fields that could be used for soccer, football and youth baseball and softball, as well as up to three multi-purpose courts that would be primarily used for tennis and basketball. Land to the west of the ball fields is owned by the city. The master plan includes a pond, a large playground, a community building and several shelter areas. The master plan also includes two more ball fields, one for adult play and one for youth play. The new ball fields would be on city-owned land but, functionally speaking, would be part of a four-field complex with the school district’s two fields. The city and recreation commission are in the process of securing a $50,000 grant that would help start construction of the adult ball field. As part of the grant application, the city and recreation commission have committed to adding $15,000 each, and another $20,000 of in-kind donations would be required. Most of that would come through volunteer labor. A separate $50,000 grant has been secured that will pay for a play structure in a secondary playground. That will be located just to the southwest of the parking area. City administrator Randall Oliver said the organizations are looking to expand the existing parking lot. The initial construction included only part of the area designated for parking in the master plan, and that area has proven to be too small already. Groundwork to the north could begin in the near future, along with drainage work. But it could be a decade or more before other parts of the park, such as the community building, become active projects. A slideshow of images from the master plan are available on the city’s website,

An architect’s renderings gave members of the public an idea of what a new park on the south edge of Cheney might look like in 10 to 20 years.

He has enjoyed living in Clearwater all these years. “I like the friendliness of it,” Walker said. “It just seems like when there’s a big catastrophe or something like that everyone just pulls together, and with the fall fest coming up, everybody’s pulling together to do that, and it seems they work well together. Walker, who worked as a cable splicer for Southwestern Bell/ATT and then SKT for a total of 41 years, is a devoted Boy Scouts of American leader, leading 20 scouts to an Eagle ranking, and that’s something he’s proud of. He got involved with the Scouts more than 30 years ago. “I think it’s a good thing where boys can learn leadership,” Walker said. “They also learn how to work together and have some outdoor experiences, like summer camps and other different activities.” He got involved with the Boy Scouts of America 32 years as a scout leader when his sons became involved with scouting. “One of my sons didn’t think he’d have the time to make it to Eagle Scout. He was almost there,” Walker said. “He told my wife recently he’d wished he’d gone on.” Becoming an Eagle Scout is the highest rank a boy can attain, requiring 27 badges and picking a project focusing on leadership in the community. Walker’s best memory is leading scouts on two trips to Philmont Scout Ranch, a 12-day hike

members have been encouraged by the interest from potential community sponsors as well as from individuals. “There’s been widebased public support for our efforts, and we can capitalize on that,” he said. “We’re going to be doing more... to let people know we are here, when we’re open, what we’re going to look at, and to please come by and visit.” Volunteers dusted off the observatory’s big 16-inch telescope and conducted a detailed check of its optics and motorized arm before the reopening. “The original drive system is pretty much intact, but it does not interface with more modern computers,” said Henderson. “The telescope can automatically go to distant stars, but not to objects in our solar system. Eventually

through t h e mountains of Cimarron, N.M., co-sponsoring troops from Clearwater. He currently serves as the Charter Organization Representative for Clearwater Troop 898. His wife Penny’s support allowed Walker to be such an active member in scouting. “Without that, it would have been very hard,” he said. “I’m very lucky.” Walker also works with the Boy Scouts once a month at the Clearwater Recycling Center. At Clearwater United Methodist church, he wears many hats, helping out behind the scenes with setting up, cleaning the kitchen, serving coffee and cookies, killing weeds and mowing fences. Walker said he is proud to be chosen as grand marshal, and he’s excitedly looking forward to the Fall

Fe s t i val. “It gets the community out, forces community involvement,” Walker said. “It forces us to be part of a community.” He enjoys it so much he’s not able to pick his best memory. “I can’t pick one over the other,” he said. “They’re all good. The community involvement is outstanding, and really well attended, even though we always seem to have it on state fair weekend or the Winfield festival. It’s either one or the other and it’s still a good crowd.” He enjoys parades, like the one coming up where he’ll be riding in a convertible beside all the other floats. “Do I enjoy parades?” he asked. “Oh yeah. Every kid likes a parade.” The Clearwater Fall Festival runs Sept. 15 to Sept. 18.

we’d like to upgrade things to the more modern control system, and the price tag for that will be around $5,000.” Henderson likes to call the observatory’s dome “Observing Room 1,” suggesting that there are many other potential vantages for stargazing, on the observatory grounds at Lake Afton and elsewhere. “It’s a portable science now; it’s not tied to a brick and mortar building as much as people think. The dome is here, the big telescope is here, but we have other telescopes I can pack in the car and take 200 miles away,” he said. KAO volunteers plan to bring portable telescopes and programs to schools in The Times-Sentinel area and in Wichita. The moon can sometimes be viewed during daytime hours, and the sun can also be viewed, with proper filtering equipment. “If you can’t bring the students to the observatory, then the observatory needs to come to the students,” said Henderson. In addition to telescopes,

the KAO has created new exhibits and attractions for people who visit Lake Afton. The indoor exhibit room now includes frequently-updated information on astronomical discoveries, such as the recent discovery of an Earth-like planet orbiting Proxima B, the second-nearest star to Earth after our own sun. Virtual-reality goggles and Android tablets provide access to interactive astronomy programs, and new, flat-screen monitors display astrophotography images and information on the objects currently being viewed. “Eventually, when we have the funds, we’ll have a camera so that we can show exactly what the telescope is looking at,” said Gassert. “If someone wants to know about a solar eclipse, I can pull up information on a screen and do a custom presentation.” The Lake Afton Public Observatory is open from 8 to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Indians take down Crusaders By Shana Gregory and Travis Mounts

The Clearwater Indians football team started the season with a strong performance, beating the Wellington Crusaders 4113 at Sellers Park in Wellington. Coach Dirk Ankerholz said he was happy with the way the whole team played, but was very impressed by runningbacks Ethan Ellis and Colin Ellis. Ethan Ellis ran for 212 yards and Collin Ellis added 150 yards. “They both had a really great game,” Ankerholz said. Clearwater took over the game in the third quarter. Wellington began the quarter with a touchdown drive that cut the Indians’ lead to just a point, 14-13. The Indians answered with a pair of third quar-

ter scores that gave them a 27-13 lead and control of the contest. The first score came on a seven-play drive covering 78 yards. Collin Ellis capped the drive with a 7-yard rush and a touchdown, his second of three touchdowns in the game. After the Indians’ defense forced Wellington to punt, Clearwater scored on the next play when Ethan Willis broke free for a 59-yard touchdown run. The Indians added two more scores in the fourth quarter, one each by Collin Ellis and Ethan Ellis, to seal the victory. In the first quarter, Clearwater took a 6-0 lead on a touchdown run by Cody Layton. The Indians attempted a 2-point conversion but did not score. In the second quarter, a Clearwater fumble

gave Wellington a scoring chance. The Crusaders took advantage with a 23yard touchdown run and led 7-6. The Indians responded

with an eight-play, 58-yard scoring drive. Collin Ellis’ 4-yard run gave Clearwater a 14-7 lead, which was the score at halftime. “It was a great feeling,”

Ankerholz said. “It always is during the first game. We came out prepared.” Ankerholz said that before this Friday’s game, the Indians plan to work on

cleaning up mistakes made in the first showdown. “That first game shows you a lot,” he said. Clearwater plays at Augusta this Friday.

Penalties, turnovers and a win for the Owls Pauly rushes for 287 yards By Travis Mounts

There’s an old phrase among coaches: “I’d rather win ugly than lose pretty.” Make no mistake – Garden Plain’s 33-27 win over Hesston was an ugly performance by both teams. But it was a win nonetheless. The teams combined for 33 penalties, including 22 by the Owls, who were penalized for 145 yards. The Swathers were hit for 110 yards in penalties. A second-quarter drive encapsulated the entire game. Leading 14-7, the Owls drove 71 yards on 15 plays, scoring on a 5yard run by quarterback Nate Pauly. The Owls were called for three falsestart penalties. Yellow flags rained down on the Swathers, too, who were whistled for a personal foul that gave Garden Plain a first down and for an encroachment penalty. The Owls also converted a trio of fourth-down plays. In a second-half drive, Garden Plain committed penalties on three straight plays; a hold was followed by two false starts. There were six turnovers in the game, four by Hesston. And Garden Plain seemed to force those turnovers at key times.

“I was pleased with the effort. Obviously, we made a lot of first-game mistakes that we need to correct, but the effort that was there. All the mistakes are correctable. We had a lot of guys in new positions,” said second-year head coach Ken Dusenbury. The Owls started the game with an 80-yard touchdown drive capped by a 23-yard run by Pauly,

who rushed for 287 yards and four scores. Three plays into Hesston’s first drive, Cody Hendryx recovered a Swathers’ fumble. The Owls needed just four plays to cover 76 yards and Pauly rushed for an 11-yard touchdown and a 14-0 lead. In the second quarter, Hesston took advantage of a Garden Plain interception, scoring on a 29yard passing touchdown

on the drive’s first play to make it 14-7. That’s when Garden Plain staged its 71-yard, penalty-filled drive for a 21-7 lead. Hesston answered with a 10-play, 80-yard scoring drive, and the Owls led 21-14 at halftime. Garden Plain grabbed momentum at the start of the second half. Hesston had an impressive drive going, but Pauly intercept-

ed Hesston quarterback Zach Esau in the end zone. The Owls then went 80 yards on four plays, most of that yardage coming on

Marty Landwehr’s 61-yard touchdown that gave Garden Plain a 27-14 lead. See OWLS, Page 4B

Goddard wins in 2 OTs Staff report

The Goddard Lions opened their season Friday night with a double overtime game against the Olathe Northwest Ravens, winning 27-26. “They all played their tails off,” Goddard coach Scott Vang said. “A few little things were off, but they kept fighting and did a win.” Forty-eight minutes wasn’t enough for the two teams. The game went back and forth, and when the horn sounded at the end of the fourth quarter, the teams were tied 14-14. The Ravens had the ball first. They scored on a 9-yard pass and attempted a two-point converstion. The attempt failed, and Northwest led 20-14. Goddard answered as quarterback Blake Sullivan ran in for the tying score. The Lions had a

chance to win on the extra point kick, but Zack True’s attempt was not good, and the teams were tied 20-20. The Lions went right back on offense, getting the ball first in the second overtime. Again the Lions scored on a Sullivan touchdown run, this time from 2 yards out. Gentry Cole came in and made the extra point kick; the Lions led 27-20. Northwest found the end zone on its try, scoring on a 2-yard run. The Ravens opted to try another 2-point conversion, but the attempt failed, and the Lions walked off the field victorious. Northwest had the game’s only score in the first half, a touchdown on a 14-yard pass that gave the Ravens a 6-0 halftime lead. Goddard took a 7-6 lead in the third quarter when Sullivan con-

nected with Bryant Mocaby on a 10-yard pass. The Lions went up 14-6 in the fourth on a 2-yard Sullivan run, but Northwest answered with a touchdown of its own and tied the game 14-14 when it made a 2-point conversion. Goddard missed a possible game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter. Vang said there is plenty to work on despite the positive outcome of this game. “We need to work on consistency,” Vang said. “We need to make better reads, better blocks, play a little better defense – just a lot of those first-game things you always do, but with the first game comes a lot of improvement. You can better identify things maybe you couldn’t see in

3A champ Garden Plain opens with pair of wins By Michael Buhler

The Garden Plain Owls began the 2016 volleyball season like they ended the previous one – with a pair of opening-night wins. The Owls opened the season last Thursday with a triangular at Bluestem High School, downing Sedgwick 25-17, 25-22 and host Bluestem 25-11, 2518. “The win against Sedgwick was a really good win for us because Sedgwick is always a good team,” Garden Plain coach Gina Clark said. “They’re very well coached. You know if you get a win against them

to open the season, you’ve done something right.” In the opener against Sedgwick, Michelle Youngers led the way for Garden Plain with 10 kills, while Piper Bourne added five and the duo of Ryann Flax and Taylor Joplin had four apiece. Bourne added 14 digs and a pair of aces, while Flax added 10 digs. Nikole Puetz added 14 assists, while Kara Heimerman had nine. Flax and Youngers had seven kills each against Bluestem, while Joplin had a pair of aces. Bourne had seven digs, while Puetz added 12 assists and

Heimerman had six assists. “Bluestem’s better than they have been in the past,” Clark said. “Everybody got in during that match. I felt good about that.” The Owls take on Medicine Lodge and St. John on Thursday, then head to Haven on Saturday for a round-robin tournament. “Kingman is there as well as Cheney,” Clark said. “Cheney returns a lot of its starters from last year. We know that’s going to be a good grudge match. There’s nobody in that tournament that you can overlook.”

Clearwater splits in season-opening tri By Michael Buhler

The Clearwater Indians opened the volleyball season with a mixed set of results last Tuesday, defeating Collegiate Prep 25-23, 25-20 and dropping a tight battle with Augusta 25-20, 25-27, 18-25 at Collegiate. “For the first night out, I was pleased with the effort I saw in both matches,” Clearwater coach Trista Bailey said. “For a fairly young group, I thought we played solid defense all night.” Alli Klausmeyer and Kylee Harman had eight kills each against Collegiate, while Grace Pracht had 23 assists. Lindsey Wolf had 12 digs, while Lacey Wolf had eight, and the duo of Kylee Harman

and Olivia Helmers each had seven. Harman had eight kills against Augusta, while Klausmeyer and Lindsey Wolf had six each and Pracht again had 23 assists. Lindsey Wolf led the way with 19 digs and Lacey Wolf added 17. “Against Collegiate, we were able to finish big rallies and relied heavily on our senior setter, Grace Pracht, to get the ball where it needed to be in our offense,” Bailey said. “In the Augusta match, we had several opportunities to finish in the second set, but couldn’t come up with the back-to-back points that we needed. We were up 20-14 and 23-16 in the

second set and got stuck in a rotation that Augusta picked apart.” Clearwater hosted Andale and Collegiate earlier this week and will compete at the Valley Center tournament on Saturday. Andover, Garden City, Campus, Rose Hill, Salina Central, Bishop Carroll, Wichita North and Wichita West will join Clearwater and host Valley Center at the tournament. “The first night out is always eye-opening for the players and as a coach,” Bailey said. “We identified some strengths in our defense but also learned that all of our hitters have to take an active role in our offense in order for us to be successful.”

Tennis roundup

Three sisters meet in doubles match By Sam Jack

Kelly Truong, a freshman at Eisenhower High School, joins her older sisters, junior Amy and senior MyLinh, on the Tigers tennis team this year. At the first meet in which all three competed, Sept. 1’s McPherson Invitational, the sisters found themselves facing off across a net. The doubles team of MyLinh and Kelly Truong went down to Riley Wedel and Amy Truong in the tournament’s third-place match, 8-6. EHS senior singles player Maddie Watson also found herself in a third-place match, after losing a lopsided semifinal to Ashley Sherrow of Derby. She rallied to take third, beating Rachel Ivers of McPherson 8-6.

After an 8-0 first-round win, Taylor Daugherty lost in the second round to eventual singles champion Ellea Ediger of McPherson. She ended up in sixth place after a win in the consolation bracket. As a team, the Tigers finished second in Wellington, only five points behind McPherson. “Everybody came out firing and won their first one, which in a bracketed tournament, you’ve got to win your first to really compete,” said coach Brad Zubke. “They all came out and did what they needed to do.” At a quad in Wellington Aug. 30, the Tigers claimed first in two of the four events, but were still edged out by Wellington for the overall team

victory. Maddi Watson won the No. 1 singles, beating Wellington’s Abby Lowe 8-1, Conway Springs’ Erica Ebenkamp 8-5, and Buhler’s Lucy Mann 8-2. The #No. 2 doubles team of Riley Wedel and Amy Truong also finished first, beating teams from Wellington, Conway Springs and Buhler by scores of 8-6, 8-6 and 8-4. Alex Taylor, playing No. 2 singles, and the No. 1 doubles team of MyLinh Truong and Bailey Beauchamp, failed to win any matches. The Goddard Lions competed at the Maize tournament Sept. 1 to start their season, scoring 11 team points to take fifth. See TENNIS, Page 4B

Lions sweep league foes By Michael Buhler

The Goddard Lions earned a pair of hard-fought victories on the volleyball court in their only action last week. The Lions took a pair of three-set wins against Derby and Maize South at home last Tuesday. Goddard rallied past Derby 23-25, 2516, 25-21 and also came from behind to defeat Maize South 21-25, 25-21, 25-21. “One of the things that I think sticks out for us is our middles are getting a lot kills,” Goddard coach Jessica Keys said. “Our passing is really good and it has allowed our middles to get a lot of kills.” The win against Derby avenges a loss to the Panthers that Goddard suffered the previous weekend in the Ark Valley-Chisholm Trail League preseason

tournament at Hutchinson. With the two wins, the Lions entered this week with a record of 5-3. “I think it really shows how much effort that they’ve put in to get to this point,” Keys said. Grace Hall and Sydney Morrow have been leading the Lions in kills, while Montana Soderberg has made her presence felt at libero. “Montana Soderberg is digging up everybody’s stuff, whether they’re hitting hard or hitting soft,” Keys said. “She’s pulling some big numbers for digs in each game.” Goddard hosted a triangular with Eisenhower and Valley Center earlier this week. The Lions are slated to head to Arkansas City on Saturday for a tournament.

Local high school golf teams tee off new season By Travis Mounts

Eisenhower opened the local girls golf season on Aug. 29 at the Derby tournament. The Tigers shot 210 to place fifth in the 10-team field. Maize and Andover shared the title, with each team shooting 193. Hutchinson (207) and Winfield (208) were next. Eisenhower finished five strokes in front of Derby. Kensey Arlt was the Tigers’ top finisher. She shot 48 and finished in a twoway tie for 10th, and she took 11th on the scorecard playoff. “Kensey shot our best score, but didn’t feel well and had a couple tough holes,” said Eisenhower head coach Cliff Hartzog. With only five varsity play-

ers, it’s more of a challenge to get four good scores for team results. “We’re constantly looking for that fourth score. We played about average. We definitely have to find a fourth score if we want to compete for medals. And everybody can do their part to help lower score,” he said. “Considering everything, we were where I thought we’d be.” Brooke Pogue shot 51 to tie for 14th. Jade Wedel shot 52, good for a fourway tie at 16th. Hannah Prince shot 59 and tied for 34th. Andale-Garden Plain and Cheney both played at Nickerson’s tournament on Aug. 30. Andale-Garden Plain and Trinity

Academy both shot 169 to lead the field, but Andale-Garden Plain was second, losing the tiebreaker with Trinity. Cheney shot 201 to place fourth. Andale-Garden Plain’s Morgan Brasser shot 37 and tied for second place. Jaci Anderson tied for eighth with a score of 47. Tori Ward tied for 13th with a 49. Garden Plain’s Isabelle Fontes shot 51 to tie for 19th. Jacqueline Strunk was 24th a 55, and Hope Seiwert shot 58 and took 29th. “Morgan played really well. Jaci and Tori had a high numbers on a couple holes which hurt them,” Andale-Garden Plain head coach Irv Schueller said. Cheney was led by Macy

Wallace, who was part of the tie for eighth place with her 47. Amy Akler shot 48 and was tied for 11th. Kylie Young’s 49 put her in a tie for 13th. “We need to be more consistent. We had a couple holes here and there where the scores were a little too high. That will come as they play more and more,” said Cheney head coach Randy Leroux. Wallace’s score was the lowest nine-hole score of her high school career. “Macy did well. To do that in the first tournament of her senior year is encouraging,” Leroux said. Andover Central’s tournament at Sierra Hills was Tuesday. Cheney, Goddard and Eisenhower compet-

ed there. Andale-Garden Plain split its squad; the Andale girls went to Sierra Hills, while the Garden Plain girls competed at Medicine Lodge. Sierra Hills is an executive course, with 14 par-3 holes and four par-4 holes. There are no par-5 holes on the course, and par is 58 rather than the normal 72. Results were not available at press time. The tournament was the season’s first for Goddard. Goddard and Eisenhower will compete at Mariah Hills in Dodge City on Thursday. Andale-Garden Plain will compete at Pratt on Monday. Eisenhower will host its annual tournament next week Thursday at Tex

Consolver Golf Course in west Wichita. Goddard and Cheney will compete there. That is Cheney’s next competition. That same day, Andale-Garden Plain will compete at Prairie Trails Golf Course in El Dorado.

Correction GARDEN PLAIN – Last week’s Times-Sentinel incorrectly stated that Jacqueline Strunk was the first female golfer from Garden Plain to earn a State medal. Emily Rausch placed 14th at the 2010 3-2-1A State tournament. The top 20 individuals medal each year.

Eisenhower sweeps tri By Michael Buhler

The Eisenhower Tigers continued their hot start to the volleyball season in their only action last week, sweeping a triangular against Cheney and Arkansas City here last Tuesday. The Tigers held off Cheney 25-21, 26-24 and rolled past Ark City 25-21, 25-3. “I’m incredibly proud of the team for those wins, as our libero and one of our opposites were out sick,” Eisenhower coach Bethany Trimble said. “The girls had to adjust to gameday lineup changes, so to finish with two wins speaks to their ability to work together as a team. That has been one of my biggest

concerns early on – we struggled with communication last weekend at our Hutch preseason tournament and emphasized that in practice last Monday.” Jordan Evans had eight kills and a pair of aces against Cheney, while Ryleigh Jackson added three kills, three blocks and eight digs. Brooke Smith had three blocks and three kills, while Morgan Bryand had three kills and five digs. Lainey Kastens added 16 assists and Bailee Hickle finished with eight digs. Against Ark City, Trinity Pfaff had seven kills, while Jackson added five kills, five aces and four blocks. Evans had five kills and six digs, while Smith had three

kills and three blocks, and Bryand added three kills and a pair of blocks. Kastens finished with 22 assists. “Lainey Kastens did a great job running our offense,” Trimble said. “She distributed the ball well, which keeps blockers guessing. All of our passers did a nice job of adapting to new serve-receive rotations and picking up the serves that Alyssa Arnold, our libero would normally take.” Eisenhower (7-1) traveled across town earlier this week to take on Valley Center and Goddard. The Tigers head to Maize on Tuesday to take on Maize South and Andover Central.

Cheney volleyball starts strong By Michael Buhler

The Cheney Cardinals started the volleyball season against a group of mostly larger schools – and the Cardinals did well, winning three of their four matches to open the season last week. The Cardinals opened with a triangular in Arkansas City last Tuesday, downing the host 25-9, 2522 and dropping a close decision to Eisenhower, losing 21-25, 24-26. Both schools are Class 5A schools, and Eisen-

hower played at the State tournament last fall. “I thought we played okay for our first matches of the year,” Cheney coach Sara Walkup said. “I believe we have a much higher ceiling than what we showed last Tuesday, but it was a start for what we hope are great things to come this season.” Maddy Freund led Cheney in kills at Ark City, while Kristen Wewe led the Cardinals in digs. “Seniors Haley Albers and Maddy Freund led the

team like the veterans they are with smart plays and lots of productive play and point scoring,” Walkup said. Two nights later, the Cardinals swept a triangular at Nickerson, downing the host 25-22, 25-21 and defeating The Independent School of Wichita 25-12, 25-27, 254. Cheney (3-1) played at Smoky Valley earlier this week and will compete at a round-robin tournament at Haven on Saturday.

Davis wins big at Clearwater Invitational By Sam Jack

Clearwater High School freshman Aimee Davis began her high school cross country career with a victory at her home invitational. Davis easily bested the rest of the field in the girls open 5K. Her time of 19:04.55 was nearly two-and-a-half minutes faster than that of her nearest competitor, Andale’s Jayden Nilles. “She put in a great summer of running and was ready to race fast the first meet,” said coach Michael Bredehoft. “She runs with the varsity boys in practice. We look forward to seeing her run on the State meet course at Wamego on Saturday.” Other notable performers at Clearwater included Cheney’s Mollie Reno, who finished 2nd in the freshman/sophomore 2-mile run, and Kale Ramos, who finished 2nd in the junior/ senior 2-mile run for Goddard. Dylan Helten of Cheney and Kora Taylor of Goddard each finished third in their respective races at Clearwater. Eisenhower High School competed at the Bishop Carroll Invitational, held at Lake Afton on Saturday. Veronica Embrey had the best individual result for the Tigers, finishing 15th in a time of 21:51. Ben Roberts’ 18:26 finish led the boys team. Goddard and Clearwater next compete at Wellington, Sept. 10 starting at 9:30 a.m. Eisenhower and Cheney will race at Hesston Thursday, Sept. 8, starting at 3:30 p.m. The Garden Plain-Andale team competes at Wamego Sept. 10, and a couple Clearwater athletes will also be in Wamego to preview the State course.

Early hole too deep for Cardinals Owls By Travis Mounts

The Cheney football team fell behind 15-0 in the first quarter in Friday’s season-opening game at Trinity Academy and spent the rest of the night trying to catch up before losing 36-21. The Knights took an early lead with touchdown passes of 18 and 29 yards, and took a 22-7 lead into the locker at halftime. A pair of unanswered touchdowns in the second half gave Trinity a 36-14 fourth quarter lead. “The first quarter, they came out in a defensive front we weren’t prepared for. And their quarterback is one of the best athletes we’ve seen in a long time. It took a while to adjust to his speed and his accuracy. He took over the game for

a while,” said head coach Cory Brack. Twice the Cardinals were able to pull to within eight points. After Trinity’s opening salvo, Micah Grover connected with Trent Scheer for a 24-yard touchdown pass that pulled Cheney to within 15-7. The Cardinals opened the second half with a 17-yard touchdown pass from Grover to Hunter Adolph, finishing a 64-yard drive to pull to within 8 points at 22-14. But Trinity’s next two scores put the game away. Cheney’s second drive of the half started with a penalty followed by a blown play. “We shot ourselves in the foot too many times. We could have had a better outcome than we did,”

Brack said. Cheney added a late touchdown on a 2-yard run by Grover. Cheney’s offense struggled early. The Cardinals started the game with two punts and a turnover on downs. Communication was the focus as the team reviewed game film Monday. “We wanted to show communication is the key for us. It’s basic, fundamental football. At times, we played really well, and at times really bad. We need more consistency,” Brack said. Trinity gained 367 total yards, throwing for 210 yards and outgaining Cheney on the ground 157-88. Grover went 19-for-28 for 210 yards. Scheer caught six passes

for 68 yards, and Adolph grabbed six passes for 46 yards. Austin Ray was Cheney’s top runner with 48 yards. The Cardinals will be at home for their next two games, starting with Belle Plaine on Friday night. The Dragons have struggled lately, going 0-9 the past three seasons. They lost 48-8 to Conway Springs last week. Belle Plaine’s last victory was 19-14 over Douglass on Oct. 19, 2012. Brack said the Cardinals need to be careful, however. He said the Dragons are well-coached and have some good athletes. Their biggest challenge is depth. “If we don’t come out focused, we could be the guys that give them their first win,”

Continued from Page 1B

But the Owls fumbled the ball away on their next possession. The Swathers drove 53 yards for a touchdown that trimmed the Owls’ lead to 27-21 late in the third quarter. The Owls returned the favor in the fourth quarter. An interception by Hendryx – the third pick by Garden Plain’s defense – gave the ball back to the Owls. They needed just one play as Pauly scampered 68 yards for a score, limping the last 10 yards due to leg cramps. That gave the Owls a 3321 lead with 2:51 to play. They needed that cushion. Hesston put together a 73-yard scoring drive in just 1:06, cutting Garden Plain’s lead to 33-27. The Swathers’ onside kick failed, however, and the Owls ran out the clock. Pauly was impressive in his debut as quarterback. He ran for 287 yards on 30 rushes, averaging nearly 10 yards a carry. He was 4-for-6 passing for 48 yards and one interception. He also made an interception on defense. “You can’t say enough about a performance like that. He’s a special athlete. The guys play really, really hard for him, very unselfish. It shows in how they block and the fakes,” said Dusenbury. “Nate’s the first one to acknowledge those guys. And a player like Nate makes everybody better. You don’t have to hold your blocks long. He turns bad breaks into

6A champ Derby rolls past Ike By Shana Gregory

Last year, the Tigers were one game away from going to 5A State at the end of the season. They found out on Friday night how far they have to go in their current season, starting with playing against the reigning Class 6A champion Derby Panthers. Eisenhower lost to the Panthers 55-20, but coach Marc Marinelli said the team doesn’t shy away from playing any team, and takes losses as chances

practice.” The Lions’ schedule doesn’t get any easier. They play the reigning

to improve. “Teams can complain all they want about having to play a bigger school, but we knew if we played a great team, our mistakes would be shown and we could then correct them for when the season matters, and that is the playoffs,” Marinelli said. “No matter what happens on Friday night, I’m always proud of my team.” Derby scored three times in the first quarter to take a 20-0 lead. The Tigers put together

class 6A champion, Derby, on Friday. “We don’t fear anybody,” Vang said. “I feel like our kids can go compete with anybody. We are not an untalented team. We are pretty talented.” Kickoff is at 7 p.m. in Derby.

a 77-yard drive in the second quarter that cut the deficit to 20-7. That drive showed “what the team is capable of when we trust each other and play together,” Marinelli said. The Tigers added a couple more scores in the second half, but by that time, the Panthers had the game in hand. “We played with solid effort, but you can’t make the mistakes we made and expect to beat a team like Derby,” Marinelli said.

“We would have nine out of 11 doing the right things, but then two not, and it wasn’t the same two at anytime.” Going into this Friday’s game against Maize, Marinelli said the team will work on fixing mental mistakes, with some of the “coaching staff taking the blame for not having our kids prepared to play,” he said. The Tigers will host Maize on Friday at the Goddard District Stadium. The Eagles beat Newton 49-27 last week.

In No. 1 singles, junior Sydney LeFevre took third, a good finish in a very competitive field. “Sydney was pretty excited, since that was the first time she medaled at a meet,” said Goddard coach Bryce McClung.

her first year on varsity, so it was kind of a warmup to get introduced to varsity games,” said McClung. “They’d never played together before, so I put them together to see how it worked. In their last match, they were down 1-6, and they rallied back to make it 6-8. They fought really, really hard.” Goddard’s No. 1 doubles team, Morgan Jilka and Dori Freund, was eliminated after two straight losses.

good ones.” Landwehr gained 115 yards on 17 carries. Hendryx led the defense with two interceptions. “Marty doesn’t come off the field. He was a tired, tired kid. He played his heart out trying to chase down that quarterback. And Cody Hendryx did a great job coming up with big plays. He made good plays on both interceptions, especially the last one as they were driving for the go ahead score,” Dusenbury said. Nick Dooley caught a pair of passes for 18 yards and ran for 3 yards before being sideline with a leg injury. Drew Wilson had 22 receiving yards. Dusenbury noted that offensive lineman and linebacker Dylan Gordon also had a good game on both sides of the ball. The teams combined for 904 offensive yards, with the Owls having a 461-443 edge. The Owls were all about the run, with 413 rushing yards and 48 in the air. The Swathers were a bit more balanced, throwing for 287 and rushing for 156. The Owls are in the middle of a three-game homestand to open the season. On Friday, they will host Trinity Academy, which beat Cheney 36-21 last week. “They have a couple of Division I-type players on their team. Those kinds of athletes will give you a heck of a hard time. And they’re surrounded by a well-coached, fast offense. They throw the ball very effectively. That could put us in a jam,” Dusenbury said.

Did you ‘labor’ on Labor Day? For me, the answer to the question, “Did you labor on Labor Day?” is usually “yes.” Please don’t feel sorry for me. I don’t mind putting in a little work on a holiday that is set aside to honor the efforts put in by my staff members. If you review the history of the celebration of Labor Day, you’ll find that someone like me, the business owner, is effectively the bad guy in this story. I don’t see myself as a bad boss at all, and in fact I’ve made many changes over the years in our employment practices here at Times-Sentinel Newspapers that have been geared toward making this a better place to work and earn a decent living. That wasn’t always the

From the Editor’s Files By Paul Rhodes Editor and Publisher

case for average workers as you look back 120 years ago to the official recognition of Labor Day by the federal government. In fact, the fight to create such a day of recognition came with a hefty price. Labor Day, the celebration of workers and their achievements, originated during one of American

labor history’s most dismal chapters. In the late 1800s, at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, the average American worked 12-hour days and seven-day weeks in order to eke out a basic living. Despite restrictions in some states, young children toiled in mills, factories and mines across the country, earning a fraction of their adult counterparts’ wages. People of all ages, particularly the very poor and recent immigrants, often faced extremely unsafe working conditions, with insufficient access to fresh air, sanitary facilities and breaks. As manufacturing increasingly supplanted agriculture as the main source of American employment, labor unions, which had first appeared in the late

18th century, grew more prominent and vocal. They began organizing strikes and rallies to protest poor conditions and compel employers to renegotiate hours and pay. Many of these events turned violent during this period, including the infamous Haymarket Riot of 1886, in which several Chicago policemen and workers were killed. Others gave rise to longstanding traditions: On Sept. 5, 1882, 10,000 workers took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square in New York City, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history. The idea of a “workingmen’s holiday,” celebrated on the first Monday in September, caught on in other industrial centers

across the country, and many states passed legislation recognizing this holiday. However, Congress would not legalize the holiday until 12 years later. Today, Labor Day is still celebrated in cities and towns across the United States with parades, picnics, barbecues, fireworks displays and other public gatherings, although those are few and far between here in our part of the Midwest. Because of its geographical prominence in the labor movement, it doesn’t surprise me that Labor Day is a big deal in Chicago, where my daughter Katie lives and works. On Monday, she was headed to a big Labor Day picnic hosted by her employer, and I thought that was pretty cool. She called

me up to get my recipe for a casserole that she always loved and wanted to share at her picnic. Since I was at the office, working in the peaceful quiet created by a holiday honoring my workers, it was perfect timing for me. I was happy to share a recipe that Katie knew only exists in my head, and I wished her well at her picnic. A couple of staff members wandered in for just a few minutes Monday, of their own volition, just so they would be a little more comfortably prepared for the big day ahead Tuesday. I wished them well on the rest of their day off, and went back to my work. Which wasn’t such a bad way for a boss to spend Labor Day.

that in Girl Scouts they were able to do things they could not have done elsewhere. The Girl Scout Research Institute (GSRI) found the variety of activities offered through Girl Scouts – from planning and leading projects to participating in community service and outdoor expeditions – allows girls to gain skills and confidence that also help them do well in school. Adult volunteers also benefit from the opportunities in Girl Scouts. About 88 percent of Girl Scout volunteers say volunteering helps them stay active, while 95 percent of volunteers say they make girls’ lives better at Girl Scouts, according to GSRI data. Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland is seeking volunteers over the age of 18 who want to make a difference in the lives of local girls. Volunteers and girls can join by going to, emailing, or calling 888-686-MINT (6468).

As students return to school, Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland is inviting all K-12 girls to join the fun and register for Girl Scouts, which gives girls a supportive space to take chances, try new things and learn to succeed through failure. New Girl Scout troops are forming now across the state, and when girls sign up for Girl Scouts on, they can browse the new online troop catalog that shows Girl Scout troops in their area and the troops’ meeting times. Feeling empowered to take action can be difficult for girls, but experiencing the benefits of girl-led programming like Girl Scouts leads to significant growth in girls’ leadership skills. According to the Girl Scout Research Institute, Girl Scouts have more leadership experiences than other girls and boys. Of girls, 84 percent say they learned or did new things in Girl Scouts, and 80 percent reported

Why are Kansas wheat futures and cash prices so far apart? This year’s abundant hard red winter wheat crop, slow export demand and ample supplies of low-priced feed grains available to compete with wheat for livestock feeding have combined to pull Kansas wheat prices lower this summer. Anticipated large harvests of corn, grain sorghum, soybeans and other crops this fall are likely to further clog the state’s grain storage and handling systems, according to Kansas State University associate professor Dan O’Brien. One apparent result of the tight grain storage situation is that the Chicago Mercantile Exchange July Kansas hard red winter wheat futures contract did not converge with the actual cash price being paid for wheat at designated delivery elevator locations in central Kansas and Kansas City, Mo., as it normally would. The disconnect between futures and cash prices could have implications for crop insurance programs, O’Brien said. For example, on July 1, at the beginning of the delivery period for Chicago Mercantile Exchange July 2016 Kansas hard red winter wheat futures, the contract closed at $3.94 a

bushel, down from $4.61 on May 2 – the price of May 2016 wheat futures at the beginning of its delivery period. Also on July 1, cash prices for wheat truck bids in Kansas City were $3.66 per bushel. On Aug. 8, cash basis levels had fallen further to $0.58 per bushel under September 2016 CME Kansas HRW wheat futures. Basis levels had fallen $0.80-$0.85 per bushel under designated delivery locations in Salina/Abilene, Hutchinson, and Wichita. “The current wide wheat basis situation in Kansas seems to be the result of large inventories of wheat in combination with other grains accumulating in Kansas grain elevators across the state in general, and at designated delivery elevators in particular,” said O’Brien, an agricultural economist with K-State Research and Extension. Basis is the difference between a local cash price for a commodity and the price of a specific futures contract of the same commodity and any given point in time. “These large inventories have resulted in greater demand for grain storage,

and raised the true value of physical grain storage space above the rates of storage written into the CME Kansas hard red winter wheat contract for delivered wheat. As a result, a positive ‘wedge’ has formed between the true value or ‘price’ of physical grain storage space and the futures contract storage rate on delivered hard red winter wheat.” Because of this, long futures position holders who have been delivered upon by short position holders have an incentive to continue to pay storage and “store” the warehouse receipts they have been forced to take rather than to “load out” or actually sell the wheat in the cash market, he said. This incentive to hold and store the delivered wheat rather than move it into the cash market is a major contributing factor in the widening of wheat basis levels during delivery periods for CME Kansas HRW wheat at delivery locations in Kansas and at Kansas City, Missouri. The impact on wheat basis levels at these key locations filter out to other grain elevators across the state. One solution to the formation of such pos-

itive “wedges” between the value of physical storage space and lower futures contractual storage rates on delivered wheat, O’Brien said, would be to raise the contractual storage rates to a level as high as the value of physical storage space is likely to ever be in the foreseeable future. Such action by the CME on the Kansas HRW wheat futures contract would help to solve the problem of non-convergence between cash wheat prices and wheat futures in Kansas wheat markets that occurs at designated grain elevator delivery locations, and that affects grain elevators across the state “If these periods of non-convergence for CME Kansas HRW wheat were eliminated, it would benefit Kansas farmers in terms of more effective and efficient crop revenue insurance programs and wheat marketing strategies,” he said. “It would also help Kansas farmers and agribusinesses make more accurate and profitable decisions in regards to crop enterprise selection, as in making profit maximizing decisions in regards to use of farm assets.”
