New rural health panel has urban feel Q Group’s lack of members from areas in need of health care improvements criticized. BY MARY CLARKIN The Hutchinson News

The Brownback administration’s new Rural Health Working Group appears to have an urban tilt. The new panel will address the delivery of health services to rural Kansas. The 2015 closing of Mercy Hospital in Independence provided impetus for a statewide study. Of the nine-member panel, two live in Johnson County; two live in Douglas County; and two live in Sedgwick County. The chairman is Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer, a surgeon owning a plastic surgery practice in Overland Park. “That’s something we noticed right away,” said Cindy Samuelson, vice president of public relations and fundraising with the Kansas Hospital Association.

Huelskamp challenger raises $524,731


Q Roger Marshall still has less than half the funds of the Rep.’s campaign. BY JUSTIN WINGERTER The Topeka Capital-Journal

The campaign for congressional candidate Roger Marshall raised a half-million dollars in 2015, funds that will allow the political novice to compete against the fundraising machine of U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp over the next seven months. Marshall’s campaign filed its quarterly report with the Federal Election Commission on Friday, showing the campaign has raised $524,731 since Marshall launched his bid in May. “Our early success, not only in fundraising, but with key endorsements like the Kansas Livestock Association and the Kansas Contractors Association, has been a humbling process and we are just getting started,” Marshall, a Republican, said in a statement. Still, the Great Bend obstetrician’s $341,344 on hand is less than half of what Huelskamp’s campaign

Rescue workers inspect damaged cars at the entrance of the Splendid Hotel in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso on Saturday.

Burkina Faso hotel seizure ends; 28 are killed OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso – The Al-Qaida fighters who stormed a popular hangout in Burkina Faso’s capital at dinnertime came with a mission to kill as many people as possible, firing at people as they moved to a nearby hotel and setting the cafe ablaze, survivors and officials said Saturday. When the gunfire stopped after a more than 12-hour siege, at least 28 people had been slain in an unprecedented attack on this West African country long spared the jihadist violence experienced by its neighbors. An audio tape later released by the al-Qaida group claiming responsibility for the carnage was entitled: “A Message Signed with Blood and Body Parts.” Amoung the victims from 18 different countries were the wife and 5-year-old daughter of the Italian man who owns the Cappuccino Cafe, where at least 10 people died in a hail of gunfire and smoke after the attackers set the building ablaze before moving on to the Splendid Hotel nearby.

claims to have at its disposal. Mark Kelly, the Republican congressman’s campaign spokesman, Marshall said it had $774,000 on hand at the end of December. “After reviewing Roger Marshall’s report, it is clear the rich hospital CEO is desperate,” Kelly said. Marshall loaned his campaign $70,000 between October and December of 2015. Since his campaign began, Marshall has loaned it $149,000, according to FEC records. Huelskamp, Marshall and student retention specialist Alan LaPolice will face off in a Republican primary Aug. 2. The race, which has grown contentious in recent weeks, will likely determine who represents the overwhelmingly conservative 1st congressional district. LaPolice, who lost to Huelskamp in 2014, has continued his strategy of raising very little money and decrying the role fundraising plays in modern elections. He raised $375 last

quarter and had $10,408 on hand at the end of 2015, according to FEC records. “In seven months, I’ll either huelskaMp be called a genius or a fool,” LaPolice said. “Either way, I’ll never be called a sellout and I’ll proudly tell my children I fought for what I believed in, I fought for the soul of my country.” “Until someone has the guts to say no to the money, money will tear this nation apart,” he added. Of the $111,612 raised by Marshall last quarter, $21,500 of it came from political action committees. Huelskamp’s campaign has been critical of one PAC donation in particular. “Not only is Marshall trying to buy this seat by giving his campaign a massive $160,000, but now he is asking for and taking money from a Washington organization that is pro-abortion and pro-Obamacare expansion in Kansas – a group with which he has close ties,” Kelly said.

On Dec. 21, Marshall received a $2,500 donation from the American Congress of OB-GYNs PAC, which doled out more than a million dollars in 2014 to 137 candidates, a majority of whom were Democrats. The American Congress of OB-GYNs supports a woman’s right to an abortion, according to its website, and has urged states to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare. Marshall donated $1,000 to the group on Oct. 30, 2015, according to FEC records. Brent Robertson, Marshall’s campaign spokesman, defended the candidate’s anti-abortion bona fides. “Dr. Marshall is staunchly pro-life and lives it out every day, having delivered over 5,000 babies throughout our state. To even suggest Dr. Marshall is anything else is pure fable,” Robertson said. “An attack with this level of absurdity proves once again that Tim Huelskamp is a career politician desperate to stay in Washington drawing his $174,000 salary and elite congressional subsidy for Obamacare,” he added.

Taiwan elects its first female president TAIPEI, Taiwan – Taiwan elected Tsai Ing-wen as its first female president Saturday, handing her pro-independence party its first majority in the national legislature and rejecting the China-friendly party that has led the self-governing island for eight years. The result should be deeply unsettling to China, which may respond by further reducing Taipei’s already limited ability to win diplomatic allies and participate in international organizations. In a statement issued after Tsai’s win, the Chinese Cabinet’s body for handling Taiwan affairs reaffirmed its opposition to Taiwan independence, but said it would work to maintain peace and stability between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.


PASADENA, Texas – Officials say an explosion at a Houston-area chemical plant has left one worker dead and three hurt. Pasadena police say the tank accident happened Saturday afternoon at the PeroxyChem Bayport Plant. A statement from Philadelphia-based PeroxyChem says the workers were doing a routine function when the contractor’s equipment exploded. A contractor died at the scene. Two PeroxyChem employees and another contractor were taken to a hospital. Police say one worker has a broken arm, while the other two were being treated for exposure. Pasadena police spokesman Vance Mitchell says the tank spill involved about 1,000 gallons of an oil-based cleaning solution. The company didn’t immediately identify the chemical or release names of the victims.

Bill would allow wrongly jailed people compensation

Reno museum seeks school items Q New exhibit planned to feature various artifacts from all across county. BY THE NEWS STAFF

Q Measure inspired by Bledsoe murder case similar to other states. BY JUSTIN WINGERTER The Topeka Capital-Journal

A bill introduced this week in the Kansas Legislature would allow individuals wrongfully convicted of crimes to receive compensation for their time in prison. Rep. Ramon Gonzalez Gonzalez, R-Perry, presented draft legislation to the House Committee on Corrections and Juvenile Justice on Thursday. Bledsoe The bill will now be processed by the Legislative Research Department before a possible hearing before either the Corrections Committee or House Judiciary Committee. “The purpose of the draft legislation was to just get the conversation going,” Gonzalez said. “Thirty other states already have something like this.” In addition to those 30 states, the District of Columbia and federal government provide for compensation. Gonzalez, who is a police chief in Perry, also works as a special prosecutor for the Jefferson County Sheriff ’s Office. In that latter role, Gonzalez has spent the past several months reopening an investigation into the 1999

murder of Camille Arfmann in Oskaloosa. After spending 16 years behind bars for the murder of Arfmann, Floyd Bledsoe had his convictions vacated by a Jefferson County judge on Dec. 8, 2015. Gonzalez testified at the hearing that he had been unable to find any evidence linking Bledsoe to the crime. “I got a lot of calls on it,” Gonzalez said of the Bledsoe case. “I wasn’t aware Kansas didn’t have a statute on compensation.” Gonzalez’s legislation doesn’t yet have a bill number and hearings on the legislation haven’t been scheduled. Corrections Committee Chairman Rep. John Rubin, R-Shawnee, plans to hold hearings on the matter if the bill remains in his committee. “We need to talk about this issue, RuBin not just in the Bledsoe case but more generally,” Rubin said. Rubin, a former judge, also sits on the House Judiciary Committee. He said the compensation bill would be appropriate in either. Though he anticipates the bill will receive a committee hearing, Rubin is unsure whether it can be passed during what is anticipated to be a short 2016 session. Tricia Bushnell, executive director of the Midwest Innocence Project, anticipates her group will have a chance to discuss the Gonzalez bill during committee hearings. “We look forward to that opportunity,” she said.

“Until then, what we can say is what we all know: what is not acceptable is to do nothing.” During an interview last month, Bledsoe said he and his attorneys were weighing their options on legal action seeking compensation. Gonzalez’s bill may be one of several pieces of legislation inspired by the Bledsoe case. The national Innocence Project, based in New York, is advocating for legislation requiring police to record interrogations in their entirety. Many of the interrogations Bledsoe underwent weren’t recorded. “That said, we do believe in the need for robust compensation laws and re-entry services for exonerees, as too often and in too many states these laws are woefully inadequate,” said Nick Moroni, an Innocence Project spokesman. Several details in the Gonzalez legislation still need to be hammered out by whichever committee considers it. For example, Gonzalez said his bill doesn’t define “exoneree” or set limits on the amount of money they may receive. “We can’t make it a blank dollar amount, we must be specific,” Gonzalez said. “Hopefully we’ll get something going.” Under a 2004 law, the federal government compensated exonerees $50,000 for each year spent in prison, plus up to $50,000 for each year spent on death row. Those amounts are currently $63,000 after being adjusted for inflation. Texas has a more generous law, awarding exonerees $80,000 per year spent in prison. Those who were wrongfully convicted also receive lifetime annuity payments worth an average of $40,000 to $50,000.

Do ‘write’ by putting a tail on this tale BY KATHY HANKS The Hutchinson News

An orange-yellow sunrise made Betsy McKane feel hopeful on New Year’s Day 1886. Maybe after several weeks of being shut inside the dark sod house her six children could play outdoors. They were always tripping over each other in this makeshift home, she thought. Built into the side of a bluff on the western Kansas prairie, it was really one big room, but they had hung blankets to separate the boys and girls from Betsy and her husband, Sheamus. The McKanes left their home in Limerick, Ireland, to seek fortune in America. It had always been Sheamus’ dream to have his own farm. Thanks to the Homestead Act, they were staking a claim on 160 acres of free land in Ford County. The closest town was Bloom, about 10 miles east. It hadn’t been easy. But they were beginning the second of five years it would take to prove up the claim. Life in Ireland hadn’t been much easier. But at least here they were working toward a dream that would be all theirs. Sometimes it even seemed like the land of plenty out on the prairie with all the jackrabbits, wild ducks and geese for food. But Betsy worried the cupboard was getting bare. “It’s going to be a beautiful day,” Sheamus said as he came through the door of the sod house with a bucket of milk from their one cow. “The sky is clear and bright. It’s a good time to head to Bloom for some supplies.” Young Neil and James got excited. “Can we come with you, Father?” Neil asked his dad. “Please, take them,” said Betsy. It would make her life easier with only four little ones under foot. They would be home before dark, Sheamus promised. Betsy, with two toddlers in her arms and and a youngster at each side, stood in the doorway waving until the spring wagon was out of view. The weather was really quite comfortable, thought Betsy, a few hours later, as she pushed the wheelbarrow

or a Coke, then we’d turn it down – telling them we wanted it in a glass.” Then they would return home south of the tracks, where reality hit. “Imagine South Town as a bowl with white residences located all around its perimeter and blacks smack dab down in the middle where it flooded faithfully every year,” Green said. Heavy rains would cause nearby Blood Creek and Shop Creek to spill over, flooding South Hoisington. Hudson figured Hoisington or Barton County could have done something to fix the problem – but they never did.

• From Page A1 incorporated, had dirt roads lined with their own businesses and residents, including a barbecue stand, beer joints, a brothel and a Baptist church. Everyone went to the public high school in Hoisington, but much of the other activity was segregated. Blacks couldn’t try on dresses at the clothing store. They had their own section at the movie theater. They couldn’t hang around and have ice cream at the soda fountain. They had to get it to go. They couldn’t ride the bus to school – instead it drove right by as they walked into Hoisington each morning. Dorla Deane Hudson recalls the memories from her home in Salina. One side of her family had settled in Nicodemus – an exoduster community created after the Civil War. Her parents eventually married and moved to South Hoisington – living at first in a boxcar while her father worked as a chef at a local hotel. There were good memories – the friendships, the sense of community. There were bad ones, too – from shootings to flooding. It was what it was, Hudson said. Moving north of the tracks wasn’t an option. “Everyone of color lived in South Hoisington,” said Hudson, who was born in 1934, adding, “Everyone was poor. We were all poor.” Railroad town You can stay on the surface of South Town, or you can try to dig deeper. Reada Green wanted to remain on the surface. During an interview at the Lawrence Public Library, she was adamant a story about South Hoisington should not focus on her. It’s about the community, she said. Green was part of that community – born in a house along U.S. 281 in the summer of 1941. Her father, Percy Richards, had followed the railroad from Mississippi to South Hoisington. He was like many who came from the south, migrating to the Midwest in the 1920s and 1930s. These southern black workers were hired by the Missouri Pacific Railroad to work. Kansas was a safer haven compared to the south at the time, where Ku Klux Klan members were targeting blacks. “We were Mississippi field hands working for the railroad,” Green said of her heritage. Others who settled here were part of the exodusters who came to Kansas after the Civil War. The Hoisington area offered jobs as the city was considered a major freight and passenger division – complete with roundhouse. “Like many communities around the state, a group of businessman got together and promoted it and convinced the railroad to put the roundhouse there. The roundhouse there pulled people in from all over because they were good jobs,” said Tracy Aris, a historic preservation planning consultant from Chicago whose mother, Beverly Komarek, directs the Barton County Historical Museum.

One of just a few homes still standing in South Hoisington. The railroad tracks divided Hoisington from segregated Hoisington. After most people left, the state cleaned up South Hoisington, as it became an illegal dump site. Council, conducted an oral history project to preserve South Hoisington’s history. According to the KHC, South Hoisington was primarily established in 1911 when the Missouri Pacific constructed division shops there. South Hoisington became a melting pot of residents, including African-Americans and Hispanics, as well as a few whites. “As white South Hoisington became primarily black, it also became known as South Town,” Green said. Hudson said her father eventually took a job at a car dealership, but her grandfather worked for the railroad. They lived, at first, in a couple boxcars provided by the railroad – eight of them all together: grandfather, parents and five children. There was no electricity. Heat came from the stove. When the railroad took out the boxcars, the family moved to a two-bedroom house. Her brothers and grandfather slept in the living room. “Then my dad built mamma a brand new house in South Hoisington,” Hudson said of the home. “It was quite the deal, it was quite the deal to have a brand new house.” House of ill repute Whether it was called South Hoisington or South Town, it had a reputation. In the dry, conservative state of Kansas, the town was known for its drinking, its gambling and its prostitution. “You didn’t hear about anything good for South Hoisington,” said Hudson of the stories that ran in the newspapers, including The News. “A charge of assault with intent to kill has been preferred against John Clark, 25, a South Hoisington Negro, for the alleged shooting of George Reed, 35, a Negro employee in the Missouri Pacific shops here,” according to a June 11, 1943, story in The News. It also said the incident occured after an argument over a $1 bill during a dice game. Reed was walking away from the Keystone Cafe in South Hoisington when Clark opened the door and shot Reed in the back.” The Great Bend Tribune also reported fighting, shootings and prostitution. The accounts were compiled in the Barton County museum’s oral history project. “Mrs. Lillie Belle Henderson of South Hoisington yesterday pleaded guilty to a vagrancy charge and was sentenced to ... six months in the state industrial farm

for women at Lansing,” the newspaper reported on May 27, 1952. “The complaint against the woman accused her of ‘engaging in an unlawful calling.’ Authorities said that the charge was fully explained in court, and Mrs. Henderson, in effect, admitted prostitution when she pleaded guilty. “Mrs. Henderson’s arrest followed an investigation in which sheriff ’s officers found four Great Bend high school students at her place. One of the boys was only 14. ... Two were 15 and one was 16.” Problems continued to be printed through the 1970s and into the 1980s. The history book noted a story in the October 1973 Great Bend Tribune that told of Kansas Attorney General Vern Miller, along with the Kansas Bureau of Investigation director and other officials raiding the area, including South Hoisington’s Big House, where dice, marked cards, liquor, beer, money and weapons were confiscated. The Big House was a twostory, white house centrally located in the little community – specifically, according to Green, a cathouse ran by African-Americans – including some of her relatives. “But the only thing was, it wasn’t for black people, it was for white people. Black people weren’t allowed in the Big House. The Big House was about making money,” Green said, adding the place was “off limits,” to most blacks simply because they could not afford any of the things being sold or wagered there. “Children were definitely not allowed in the Big House, and we were just as curious about what went on there as many other non-participants were,” Green said. She was an adult before she got a peek inside the Big House. She recalled a liquor store filled with exotic liquors in a portion of the living room, which was for the clientele. The “black den of sin,” survived in what she described as a “a white-dominated conservative Christian county,” because the blacks would pay off their fines with cash and continue their activity until it was time for fines again, Green said. Police raids were a common occurrence all over South Town. Nowhere else to go The social boundaries were well defined. Hudson’s younger sister, Carol Miller, Salina, recalled the black section of the movie theater and not being able to try on dresses or hats

at the Montgomery Ward store. At the soda fountain, African-Americans didn’t receive the same service as the white clientele. “They wouldn’t serve you in a glass – they would put it in a paper cup,” she said, adding she and her friends weren’t allowed to stay and eat, either. Sometimes they tested the waters, Miller said. “We’d go in and ask for a banana split

“So it would flood in South Hoisington, and we would have to move out,” she said. Residents would go “uptown” to the Hoisington city auditorium and stay until the waters receded, she said. Then, folks would go home and begin cleaning up the mess – the water damage, the mud, along with eradicating the snakes and spiders. But why didn’t people move? They couldn’t, said historian Aris. Social reasons and economics dictated where they lived during this era, she said.

Town • From Page A4 Faith and family Yet, there was another side to South Town. In the community of 200 people, The First Baptist Church was its heart for many years, Green said. The church’s cornerstone had 1929 as the date it was erected. “Our little community had a church with a choir and youth groups; Masons and Eastern Star members, picnics, hayrack rides, baseball games and holiday celebrations,” Green said. There weren’t any church pews, so people sat on little wooden folding chairs and kept themselves cool by waving wicker fans compliments of the Hoisington funeral home. Church socials, dinners and school activities created a close-knit community, said Carol Miller. Miller recalls her sister – Hudson – bringing home a used bicycle for her from the man she worked for in Hoisington. Their father polished it up, and Miller rode it everywhere. There are plenty of other good memories, she said. “I learned a lot,” she said. “I saw a lot. I had a good childhood. We had plenty of food and plenty of clothes. I have good memories growing up and being family.” Green said she was sent to live in Mississippi when she was 9. Her mother, Lottie Johnson, wanted her to have more opportunities. There were no dance or piano lessons or extra-curricular activities offered in South Town. She returned three years

South Hoisington may be only a memory, but the Barton County Historical Museum has been working to preserve South Town’s story. The museum received a $1,500 Kansas Humanities Council grant to complete an oral history project about South Town. “South Hoisington: Stories from the Other Side of the Tracks” was completed in 2014. The goal of the oral history project was to find former residents and have them tell their memories of the predominantly African-American

later and remained in the community until she married when she was 17. “It wasn’t ideal and it wasn’t bad – it was just a place,” Green said. “It was the only place we knew,” she said. Little left Over the years, with each graduating class, South Hoisington’s youth moved away. Eventually, according to the oral history report, another big flood in the 1980s caused most of the rest of the community to leave, as well. Reada Green Soon, the now largely empty town became a haven for illegal dumping. In 2003, the Bureau of Waste Management received an anonymous tip and found one of the state’s biggest dump sites. Work began in 2006 to clean up the area, which was now overgrown with grass and trees. In all, 3,268 tons of waste material were removed at a cost of $400,000, according to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. That included razing the residences, the Big House and

community. A number of Barton County historians worked on the project – transcribing the first-hand accounts of those who lived there. “It was so notorious,” said Tracy Aris- a historian who worked on the project of the town once known for its rowdiness. “When you say South Hoisington, people snicker.” But this project was more than just about the brawls, shootings and gambling, she added. It is about everyday life in a close-knit community. It’s about family, faith and dreams.

the remains of the church. These days, there is no one really living in South Hoisington. And those in Hoisington don’t often bring up the sister community. Growing up north of the tracks in the late 1930s and 1940s, Janet Boese recalled South Hoisington as off limits. While there was no segregation in the high school, she remembers hearing there was a time when the African-Americans were not allowed in Hoisington after sundown. That makes her feel bad. “We have to learn to get along together,” Boese said. Hudson graduated from high school, then moved to Salina to attend Brown Mackie College. She married, had children and worked in Salina. Miller said she was the only African-American girl to graduate in her Hoisington High School class of 1956. She eventually moved to Salina, too. She doesn’t make it back to South Town often, but recalls the last time she stopped by – maybe about five years ago – and walked through the local cemetery. Her childhood here taught her lessons she still embraces as an adult. “I learned how people should be respected no matter what color you are,” said Miller, adding, in life, you have to “stand firm in beliefs – not back down. And I didn’t and I still don’t.”

MORE STORIES FROM SOUTH HOISINGTON 1911 The new Division Shops for the Missouri Pacific Railroad were constructed, replacing the previous shops and roundhouse. Sept. 13, 1939 “The negro night spot ‘We-Go-In’ located in South Hoisington has been closed and padlocked by the county officers. A man was shot there in a brawl Monday.” The Hutchinson News May 10, 1944 “A charge of first degree murder has been filed against A.D. Stinnis, 40-yearold South Hoisington negro, in connection with the fatal shooting of Percy Richards, 39, also a South Hoisington negro, during a dispute of the Richards home early Sunday morning.” Feb. 18, 1952 “Mrs. E.J. (Lulubelle) Henderson, about 33, was taken to the Lutheran hospital at Hoisington, and William T. Kelley, 43, to the city jail at Hoisington following a shooting that occurred shortly after midnight Sunday morning at her home in South Hoisington.”

Jan. 17, 1953 “One man, George Reed, South Hoisington, began serving a 99-day sentence in the county jail and his female accomplice, Adele “Little Bit” Riley, has been bound over to district court in the aftermath of the latest flare-up in South Hoisington. A third person involved, W.B. Metcalf, Great Bend, is confined to Lutheran Hospital at Hoisington suffering wounds to the leg, arm and back as a result of the “razoring,” he received in the melee. The fracas occurred at midnight Friday in front of the Willie Watson’s bar-b-que stand east of the highway in South Hoisington. Reports were that Reed and Metcalf were engaged in a fight when Miss Ruby attacked the white man and slashed him about the body.” Great Bend Tribune. July 28, 1958 South Hoisington residents began the tedious work of digging out from the flood that hit the area Sunday morning from Blood and Shop Creeks. Families evacuated from the lowland

Oct. 4, 1976 Emory Witt Sr., Great Bend, was charged with aggravated battery for shooting Levi Steiner, 54, South Hoisington, in the hip outside the T.C. Williams residence in South Hoisington.

“The Baptist church was basically the glue of South Town,” said Karen Nueforth, the Barton musuem’s curator. “Everything evolved around stuff at the church.” South Hoisington is about family, Nueforth said, adding she has a great deal of admiration for South Hoisington’s women. “Despite legal troubles involving bootlegging and other things, they came up here in difficult circumstances from the South. They put a life together. ... They raised their families, supported their families

and got their kids educations. Most of their kids graduated from high school – went to college.” In all, there were nine former residents interviewed, Nueforth said. Through the grant, they were able to write down the South Hoisington story before it disappeared, Aris said. “They were pleased that someone was talking about South Hoisington in a positive manner – capturing the whole story and not just the ‘hee-hee’ pieces,” Aris said.

“this working group should have frontline stakeholders involved, including a rural hospital administrator and a rural physician at the same table as top policy makers. “We can and should find a Kansas solution that will improve rural healthcare access and outcomes,” he said. Brownback said: “KanCare is working” and “ObamaCare is failing.” Brownback opposes the expansion of Medicaid for low-income people, voicing concern about the state’s financial exposure. He said ObamaCare’s increased costs and Medicare reimbursement cuts have hurt rural hospitals. “I thought it was a gimmick when he said it,” said Rep. Jim Ward, D-Wichita, about Brownback’s new Rural Health Working Group. “Now I know the members, I’m sure,” said Ward, ranking minority member of the House Health and Human Services Committee. Heavy on legislators The day after the State of the State, the governor’s office issued a press release announcing those selected to the Rural Health Working Group: Sen. Mary Pilcher-Cook, R-Shawnee, chairman of the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee Rep. Daniel Hawkins, R-Wichita, chairman, House Health and Human Services Committee Sen.

All the legislators are Republicans, as well as Bruffett and Mosier. Stalcup and Cook are registered Republicans, too, according to 2015 voter registration rolls. Ward considered the legislators “incredibly radically conservative, with the exception of Jim Kelly.” Kelly, a banker who also led the Independence hospital board, has said he favors some strategy – either the limited Medicaid expansion adopted in other states with Republican governors or some other aid – to help small hospitals. The News was unable to reach Kelly Friday. “There are a lot of people he could have included,” Ward said. “How about getting somebody from the Independence hospital? I don’t think this is a serious attempt at addressing the issues,” he said.

about the panel’s lone hospital administrator selection, Samuelson said, the association has worked with Stalcup for years. She has a lot of experience as a critical-access hospital administrator, Samuelson said. Besides Stalcup, Cook is the other member of the new panel who does not have ties to the administration. For the last 14 years, Cook has provided medical care at various locations. Mostly, she said, she has done that work through Docs Who Care, Olathe. Sometimes, she said, they provide emergency room coverage on weekends for a hospital or clinic. They can be there anywhere from a day to a week. During 2015, she said, she worked in emergency rooms in Russell, Larned, Greensburg, Clay Center and Pratt. In previous years, she has worked in Phillipsburg, Stafford, Kingman, Eureka, Medicine Lodge, Plainville, Lindsborg, Manhattan, and Garnett. Cook has seen the financial challenges at hospitals. She said it’s too early to say what the goal will be for the new group. “We may bring our own ideas,” she said. She said a state senator recommended her as an appointee to the Rural Health Working Group, because he

knew of her work in rural hospitals. She declined to identify the senator. Year ahead The governor’s office defended the membership of the Rural Health Working Group. Eileen Hawley, press secretary and director of communications, said in a statement: “A vast majority of the members of the working group are from rural Kansas, including Lt. Gov. Colyer, who is a fifth-generation Kansan from Hays. Both of the health care professionals (Stalcup and Cook) work in rural areas of Kansas.” Cook “has tremendous insight into the challenges facing a diverse group of rural health care delivery systems,” Hawley said, and the group “will be seeking input from additional rural health care providers and medical professionals.” Colyer is “is pleased with the health care professionals and policymakers on this working group, who have dedicated a year of their lives to finding a Kansas solution,” Hawley said. The KHA is concerned by the Rural Health Working Group’s deadline. It does not have to submit its recommendation until early 2017.

Teacher hired with child porn investigation pending THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GARDEN CITY – A man charged with child sex crimes was hired as a Wichita teacher last fall after a background check failed to uncover that he resigned from a southwest Kansas community college job amid a child pornography investigation. Steven Thompson, 62, of Wichita, was charged this month with three counts of sexual exploitation of a child in Finney County, where he previously was a tenured computer science instructor at Garden City Community College. Garden City Police Capt. Randy Ralston said school officials reported in September 2013 that child pornography was found on Thompson’s work computer. Later, pornography also was found on another computer and external hard drives, Ralston said. Thompson is free on bond. His attorney, Lucille Douglass, didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press seeking

comment. Wichita schools spokeswoman Susan Arensman told KWCH-TV that nothing showed up on the background check because Thompson hadn’t been charged when he was hired in August 2015. Thompson was working as a math teacher at Northeast Magnet High School when he was placed on paid administrative leave, said Arensman, who didn’t immediately return an email from the AP seeking comment. Ralston said police haven’t been notified of any problems with Thompson in Wichita. The Kansas Department of Elementary and Secondary Education said Thompson applied for a license in September 2015, which is valid through the end of June. Denise Kahler, a department spokeswoman, said applicants must submit fingerprints when applying for a license. But she added that nothing would show up without criminal charges. The issue raised alarms among some parents.

“If they knew about this two years ago, why didn’t that keep him from being employed as a teacher?” Latishia Darnell, mother of two students, told KWCH-TV. She added: “It seems like there was a gap in some processes there.” Thompson resigned voluntarily from Garden City Community College in February 2014, said Randy Grisell, the school’s attorney. He said he couldn’t elaborate, noting that it was “a confidential personnel action.” Grisell said that if asked, the institution would have told a prospective employer only Thompson’s date of employment, pay level, job description and duties and wage history. Grisell said that if the college provides additional information it opens itself up to potential liability. Finney County Attorney Susan Richmeier said she did not know Thompson was teaching in Wichita until the day the charges were filed. She said it can take “a long period of time” to comb through all the information

in electronic devices in computer forensic cases. She said she couldn’t comment further about the specifics of Thompson’s case, noting the ongoing investigation.

“We hope that the new group will have a sense of urgency. We feel like the issues of today might need a little faster attention,” KHA’s Samuelson said. More than 36 percent of all Kansans live in rural areas and depend on the hospital serving their community, she pointed out. “Our hope is once they get around the table, they can move that timetable up a little bit,” she said. The KHA thinks expanding Medicaid will help rural providers, but there are a number of

other challenges facing rural health care, she said. Ward sees the deadline as part of the gimmick. State legislators who opposed Medicaid expansion will be running for re-election this fall. If they are questioned about their vote and the financial impact on their hospital, they can refer to the in-progress study by the Rural Health Working Group and say they are waiting the results in 2017. “I think Kansans have seen through this,” Ward said.

Site of Salem tragedy found Q Documents and 21st-century technology confirm the location of executions in witch trials.



SALEM, Mass. – A team of researchers using historical documents and 21st-century archaeological techniques has confirmed the site where 19 innocent people were hanged during the Salem witch trials more than three centuries ago. The site, known as Proctor’s Ledge, is a small city-owned plot of woods nestled between two residential streets and behind a Walgreens pharmacy, said Salem State University history professor Emerson “Tad” Baker, a member of the seven-person team, which announced its Emerson findings this week. “Tad” Baker, Historian Salem State Sidney University history Perley had professor pinpointed Proctor’s Ledge nearly a century ago as the site of the hangings by using historical documents, but his findings were lost to time, and myth, misconceptions and conspiracy theories had taken their place, Baker said. The current research, known as the Gallows Hill Project, was about correcting the misinformation many people have about one of the most tragic episodes in American history. “We are not discovering anything, and we don’t want to take credit for

“We need to have that exact spot marked so it can never be lost again.”

Salem State University history professor Emerson Baker stands Jan. 11 in area that he and a team of researchers said is the exact site where 19 innocent people were hanged during the 1692 witch trials in Salem, Mass. that,” he said. “This is all about the healing, not about the discovery.” Twenty people suspected of witchcraft were killed in Salem in 1692 during a frenzy stoked by superstition, fear of disease and strangers, and petty jealousies. Nineteen were hanged, and one man was crushed to death by rocks. “The witch trials cast a long dark shadow on Salem history,” Baker said. The top of nearby Gallows Hill had long been thought of as the site of the hangings, but there was no evidence to support that, Baker said. Proctor’s Ledge is at the base of Gallows Hill. To determine the spot, the team looked at eyewitness accounts of the hangings, then used modern-day aerial photography and ground penetrating radar not available a century ago. The team made other interesting discoveries. They determined there probably never was a gallows at the site. More than likely, the

executioners tossed a rope over a large tree. Baker also stressed that there is no evidence that any of the victims were buried at Proctor’s Ledge – it’s too rocky. “I think knowing the exact location where the executions took place is important because we want to get history right,” Mayor Kim Driscoll said. “It’s also an opportunity to come together and recognize the injustice and tragedy.” The city plans to place a marker at the site but also wants to respect the rights of the people who live in the area, the mayor said. The city doesn’t want visitors tramping through private backyards looking for the spot, she said. Instead, she encourages visitors to go to the memorial and museum downtown. Baker said a memorial at the site is important. “We need to have that exact spot marked so it can never be lost again,” he said.

INNOCENTS WHO WERE CONDEMNED, EXECUTED DURING THE TRIALS The Salem witch trials were a series of prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts from February 1692 to May 1693. The trials resulted in the executions of 20, most of them women – all but one by hanging. The episode is one of the United States’ most notorious cases of mass hysteria.

VATICAN CITY – Pope Francis lays out his case for emphasizing the merciful face of the Catholic Church in his first book as pontiff, saying God never tires of forgiving and actually prefers the sinners who repent over self-righteous moralizers who don’t. “The Name of God Is Mercy,” a 100-page conversation with Italian journalist Andrea Tornielli, has been published in 86 countries to help kick-start Francis’ Holy Year of Mercy. In the book, Francis condemns what he Francis calls the “scholars of law” – the doctrinaire-minded rigorists who throughout the history of the church have challenged Jesus’ message of unconditional love and mercy for even the most wretched of sinners. He says often these self-righteous Christians are hypocrites themselves, using the law to hide their own “deep wounds.” “These are men who live attached to the letter of the law but who neglect love; men who only know how to close doors and draw boundaries,” Francis is quoted as saying. Francis has rankled many conservatives with his frequent dismissals of theological and legalistic arguments stressing doctrine over his more pastoral message of welcome and mercy for society’s most marginal. marriage and divorce. “We must avoid the attitude of someone who judges and condemns from the lofty heights of his own certainty, looking for the splinter in his brother’s eye while remaining unaware of the beam in his own,” Francis says. “Let us always

A reproduction of the front page of Pope Francis’s book “The name of God is Mercy” is seen in this Jan. 7 photo taken in Rome, Italy. remember that God rejoices more when one sinner returns to the fold than when 99 righteous people have no need of repentance.” Francis has made clear from the start of his pontificate that his would be a papacy focused on mercy, and he called a jubilee year to emphasize it. Throughout the book, Francis refers repeatedly to his own ministry to prostitutes and prisoners in Argentina, showing how his own personal encounters have shaped his view about the faith and formed the bedrock of his papacy. As a confessor, Francis is quoted as saying, “I have always tried to find a crack, just a tiny opening so that I can pry open that door and grant forgiveness and mercy.” But Francis’ opening isn’t a free-for-all: He says of course prisons can’t throw their doors open and let violent criminals out onto the streets. And he distinguishes between ordinary and even repeat sinners and those who are corrupt, saying corruption is a condition, a state of life and often a hypocritical one incompatible with Christianity. “The corrupt man often doesn’t realize his own condition, much as a person with bad breath doesn’t know they have it,” he says.

Long-ago choice leads to fulfilled dreams Q Man’s decision to turn away from anger, embrace work leads to 100 years of life well lived. BY ROY WENZL Tribune News Service

WICHITA – On a cold night in Virginia during World War II, a U.S. Army private named John Monk tried to travel back to his company after taking a seven-day leave. He tried to ride a bus to get there. Bus drivers in the Jim Crow South back then made black people like him ride in the back – even if they were soldiers. And they’d pull a curtain down on those back seats so white people would not be offended by looking at black people. Monk didn’t mind. It was cold outside; the bus would be warm. But on this night, while Monk stood shivering, the first bus that rolled up filled immediately with white soldiers and other people – every seat. It happened again with the next bus. And the next. The Wichita Eagle reports there were bathrooms nearby, and restaurants. But they were whites-only. He watched buses roll away for hours. John Monk could have gone into a rage. But because of what he did instead, he will smoke one cigar next week in his home on North Minneapolis. He will take two drinks of whiskey. And he will celebrate his 100th birthday as a man whose wishes all came true. What he decided at the bus depot changed everything.

John Monk poses for a photo Dec. 29 with his granddaughter Kay Monk-Morgan in Wichita. Monk turned 100 on Jan. 9 and he served in the Army in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. him backward. “My mamma asked how I was. “I told her I would never talk to that son of a bitch again. “And I never did.” On the bus platform on that cold night in Virginia in 1942, even with the anger boiling, Monk had a thought. Just a little thought. It may have saved him. “I cannot hate white people.” He’d known good ones. And in the heat of that rage he felt now, he saw that hate scared him. Hate won’t destroy white people, he thought. “But it could destroy me.” So he made a choice, decisive, sudden and silent. He said to himself: “If I can find a damned bus back to my company, I’m gonna become the best damned soldier in the United States Army. “And that is what I did.”

‘You fight over scraps’ On the farm where he grew up, Monk’s dad made him pick cotton and loaned him out to white cotton farmers. He stayed overnight at those farms, but not in the houses with the white people. In Louisiana in the 1920s and ’30s, the whites made him sleep in barns, in chicken coops, or on the ground, including when it rained. “And if you got wet, you got wet,” Monk said. “The animals lived better. I worked with mules sometimes. And for days all I had to talk to was that mule.” That was Jim Crow time.

to march, to fight, to fire the M1 infantry rifle and the 105-millimeter howitzer. He did everything now as though he meant it. Black soldiers asked why he worked so hard. “ ‘Hey, my family lives in this country,’ “ he told them. “ ‘I figure I’m saving my country, saving myself, saving my family.’ ” World War II ended. Monk stayed in the Army. He was a black man with a job. He began saving money, pennies and quarters at a time. They sent him to the Korean War. He never fought. He served in quartermaster supply units. He served in a bath unit that gave hot showers and clean clothes to exhausted soldiers who had just staggered out of the foxholes up front. But by the time his third war came around, Vietnam, the Army was mostly integrated, and he was a master sergeant. And as anyone in the Army knows, the master sergeants run everything. He retired in 1962 with a pension and $11,000 saved. He owned a house he had bought in Wichita five years before; he chose Wichita because he’d visited a brother here. He made the down payment in cash. Family life In Wichita he married his first wife, Grace, who died, and his second wife, Wilma – a white woman. Wilma’s first husband left her after their neighborhood changed – the customers at their dry cleaners were now mostly black. The man did not like black people, so he left, and Wilma ran the business: Terrie’s Cleaners, on the corner of 17th and Poplar. One day, when Monk realized she needed help, he just walked in and started helping her. He later married her and helped her run the dry cleaners for years. That’s where his grandchildren Orlando and Kaye Monk, brother and sister, learned to work. And that is where Kaye and Orlando came to believe that their grandfather was a superhero. He made them work, and drilled them again and again about the importance of work, saving money, taking care of family. He made them save the first quarters they ever earned. One day, when Kaye had saved $5 in quarters, he gave her $5 more. “That’s interest,” he told her. “Now save that, too.” He had saved and earned so much in the Army and in subsequent jobs that he drove a Cadillac and bought a 40-acre farm near Severy. He would load up Kaye and Orlando and take them the hour and a half east to the farm, where he would cook breakfast at 6 a.m. and put them to work; digging,

gardening, fishing and cleaning up. The effect the trips had on the brains of his grandchildren was dramatic, Kaye said. Her later career in education would teach her that what Monk did with those trips was calculated. The master sergeant knew how to train. He yanked those kids out of their little worlds and thrust them into dirt and work and nature. They saw the world was bigger than Wichita – that there were small towns and farms and crops and natural beauty and fish and things they could make with their hands. And there was Monk, telling stories, making them work and laugh. A shot at a dream In 1989, Kaye was living poor, in spite of Monk’s constant efforts to help his children and grandchildren out of poverty. But Kaye was doing so well at North High School that people were urging her to apply for a $32,000 Gore scholarship at Wichita State University. It seemed impossible to Kaye. Out of reach. Four hundred applicants. She had good grades. But then she found out she would have to make multiple trips to the WSU campus over multiple weekends to take part in competitions. The scholarship people needed to winnow down the 400 applicants Her mother did not have a car. To people in poverty this can seem insurmountable. Her Mom asked a lot of people for rides. No one could help. Kaye almost gave up. Then Monk found out what was up. He got mad. “Why did you not call me?” She told him the competitions were on weekends. He always worked on his farm on weekends. She had not wanted to bother him. That steamed him. “I will take you. And you will go.” She argued. “Don’t argue. You will go.” He drove her to the campus on multiple weekends. Kaye won the scholarship. Other challenges Orlando at the age of 17 fathered a child with a girl he liked. He felt shock and fear. What should he do? Many other young men he knew, in this position, not wanting to be tied down, would run away. Monk looked him in the eye. “You screwed up,” the old man said. “But you will not run. You will be a stand-up guy. “You will support your child, which is yours as much as hers. You will work. You will provide. Do you understand?” That was nearly 25 years ago. Orlando is now the general manager of Mike Steven Volkswagen and can rattle off facts about how

big the business is: Mike Steven is the number one Volkswagen dealership in Wichita, Orlando says. And in the state of Kansas, he says. One of the top 100 in the nation, he says. At age 41, Orlando says he is the only minority general manager of a big car dealership in Wichita. Every day at work with customers, Orlando says, he hears the voice of Master Sgt. John Monk in his head, telling him to treat people right. Orlando is the father of five children. And he is married to the same girl he took a liking to nearly 25 years before. Kaye earned an undergraduate degree and then a master’s degree in public administration at WSU and now is director of the TRIO Upward Bound Math Science Center based there. She has helped hundreds of high schoolers in Kansas aspire to and prepare for college. At his house on North Minneapolis, Monk tells funny stories until he gets to the one about the bus ride. He tells that one, then leans over and sobs, a 99-year-old man shaking and groaning with sobs. Beside him is an ash tray holding the butt end of the one Dutch Masters cigar he had smoked earlier that day. He sits up now and apologizes for crying. On many days, he sits with Eugene Anderson, the former state representative who has been like a son to him for decades. Anderson is sitting with him now. He smokes cigars with him, calls him “Master Sgt. Monk.” On his 100th birthday, Monk says, besides the cigar and whiskey, “there might be ribs.” “And beans!” Monk says. He grins at Anderson, who grins and shakes his head. His wives are long gone. All his friends of his age – gone. “And I’m scared about turning 100.” But Anderson looks in on him every day. His daughter, Shirley, Orlando and Kaye’s mom, takes care of him. And there are four grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. At his home, Kaye sits on the arm of Monk’s chair beside him. When she had walked into his house a few minutes before, she called out, “Hi, Sexy.” And then she had watched, ashen-faced, as he broke down in sobs again, telling how his father slapped him 79 years ago. He brightens up again now. “So here’s how to get to 100,” he says. “One cigar. “Two Crown Royals. Just two. “Live by the Golden Rule.” “Take care of your family. Always.” “I did all that. “And all my wishes came true.”

Author, 98, offers follows up best-seller with a memoir on ‘things that matter’ BY ANN LEVIN Associated Press

“Alive, Alive Oh! And Other Things That Matter” by Diana Athill Diana Athill, 98, still has a few things to teach us about growing old with dignity and humor and grace. Her latest memoir, “Alive, Alive Oh!” follows the unlikely literary celebrity she achieved at age 90 with the publication of the prize-winning best-seller “Somewhere

REVIEW Towards the End.” In this collection of astute and sparkling essays, Athill tries to identify “the things that matter” after living to almost 100. It’s not her love affairs, though she had plenty. “About halfway through my 70s I stopped thinking of myself as a sexual being,” she writes. “It was like coming out onto a high plateau, into clear, fresh air, far above the

antlike bustle.” What remains are “memories, thoughts and reflections”: of her grandparents’ garden, where an apple tree provides “the nearest I ever came to a mystical experience.” Of women’s changing fashions – even for a girl born in 1917, “pinkness and sparkle” were everything. And of her reluctant decision to move into a retirement home, an essay that includes a hilarious account of a day spent

planting rosebushes with a few other nonagenarian residents, one of them blind. “One good thing about being physically incapable of doing almost anything is that if you manage to do even a little something, you feel great,” she observes. One of the most powerful essays recounts a pregnancy in her 40s, a brush with death that left her profoundly grateful to be alive. Another chapter, titled “Lessons,” offers up

a few: “Avoid romanticism and abhor possessiveness,” she says. In her case, that meant no children, and affairs with married men. But she has few, if any, evident regrets. Rather, the life she describes is one of abundance – although not material – where every sorrow is offset by sweetness of all kinds – friends, food, fashion, art, literature, travel and rambles in nature.

Siblings need to help out more with Mom’s care Annie’s Mailbox

Dear Annie: When my father passed away, I moved in with my mother to help with her bills. Five years later, I’ve paid off her mortgage and continue to live with her and pay her utilities. I now have the opportunity to purchase my own home. At age 33, I feel I need my own space. The predicament is, Mom cares for my ailing sister and her son every day. It means Mom doesn’t have time to get a job to support herself. I’ve told her that I can afford to continue paying her utilities, but she refuses. She said if I move out, it’s like I am “throwing her away like trash.” My siblings weren’t treated this way when they moved out and

All of them pressure you to keep things as they are because it is in their best interests. But it’s not in yours. Since your mother no longer needs your financial support beyond what you have already offered, please ignore their entreaties to stay. Don’t argue with your family. Simply promise Mom that you will see her often, and assure your siblings that Mom will not be neglected. Calmly repeat those words as often as you need to. In time, they will get used to your

Wikipedia gets another source of cash for its birthday BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE AP Technology Writer

SAN FRANCISCO – Wikipedia is getting another source of cash for its 15th birthday, expanding beyond fundraising drives that have already poured $250 million into the Internet’s leading encyclopedia. The Wales additional money will come from a new endowment created for Wikipedia, whose website started Jan. 15, 2001, and is now overseen by the nonprofit Wikimedia Foundation in San Francisco. The Wikimedia Endowment will start with less than $1 million donated by the estate of Jim Pacha, a software engineer who died in 2014, and then build toward a goal of accumulating $100 million by 2026. Wikipedia won’t begin drawing money from the endowment after it’s fully funded. Wikipedia still plans to ask its users to donate money to keep advertising off its website. The additional income from the endowment will help insulate Wikipedia from economic turmoil and other potential threats

Wikipedia’s logo is seen here in this courtesy photo. to its survival, said Lisa Gruwell, chief advancement officer for the Wikimedia Foundation. “We have a great fundraising model right now, but things on the Internet change so it’s not something we can count on forever,” Gruwell said. “Wikipedia is a pretty rare thing, and the endowment is there to ensure this cultural treasure will never go away.” Since starting out as an experimental patchwork of information, Wikipedia has turned into indispensable tool for hundreds of millions of people looking to quickly answer questions covering everything from schlock to science. Satisfying all that curiosity has become increasingly expensive as Wikimedia has spent more on the computers, software and other technology that keeps Wikipedia running. The foundation’s staff has also

swelled from just a handful of people in its early days to about 300 employees today. Wikipedia, though, gets all its material for free from about 80,000 volunteer editors around the world. The site’s index now spans 36 million entries in 280 languages. Wikipedia’s growth has spurred criticism that its parent foundation has become bloated and doesn’t need to raise so much money. Wikimedia generated revenue of $76 million while its operating expenses totaled about $53 million in its last fiscal year ending June 30. The $23 million surplus contributed to the foundation’s cushion of about $65 million in cash and short-term investments – enough to cover its projected operating expenses for all of the current fiscal year. Wikipedia still posted notices at the top of its website throughout December



asking its U.S. users to donate money in a campaign that raised another $30 million. That money will go toward Wikipedia’s future expenses, Gruwell said. Wikimedia is “very good at begging for money, but the bottom line is they could go another 10 years without raising another dime,” said Eric Barbour, a former Wikipedia editor. Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales says the recurring fundraising campaigns and future money from the endowment are needed to run one of the Internet’s busiest websites and realize its ambition to become even more comprehensive as more people get online. Wikipedia attracts the seventh most traffic in the world, according to the rankings of tracking service Alexa. All the other websites more popular than Wikimedia are run by profit-driven companies, including Google, Facebook and, that employ thousands of employees. “We stay very mission-driven,” Wales said. “One of the things that we are focused on is the idea of having an encyclopedia available for every person in the world in their own language. As you go in that direction, these (requests for money) are some of things you need to do to build that long-term dream.”

NORTH EAST SOUTH WEST 1♦ Pass 1♠ 2♣ 2♠ Pass 4♠ All pass

Opening lead: King of ♣ The Venice Cup, representing supremacy in women’s bridge, was contested late last year in India. The champion was France, in a close match against the USA. Benedicte Cronier is a long-time star of the French women’s team. She was South, in today’s deal. Cronier ducked the opening club lead, but won the club continuation with the ace perforce. She led a heart to dummy’s king, followed by the

king of spades. West won with her ace and reverted to clubs, ruffed by South. Cronier led a spade to dummy’s queen, cashed the queen of hearts, then led a spade to her jack, drawing trumps. Cronier cashed the ace of hearts, discarding a diamond from dummy, and the key moment had arrived — what to do in diamonds? West was known to have started with six clubs, one spade, and at least three hearts. Cronier decided to play West for a doubleton diamond honor. She led a low diamond to dummy’s king as West ducked, then led a low diamond from both hands to crash the now singleton ace from West. Well done. Note that Cronier could have played her queen on the second diamond without loss. West would have been end-played and forced to yield a ruff-sluff. Indeed, West should probably have seen this coming and played her ace of diamonds on the first round of the suit, then exited with her remaining diamond. That would have defeated the contract had partner held the diamond queen.

Sessions to look at farmers’ markets Q Workshops covering a host of topics aim to aid vendors, managers. BY THE NEWS STAFF

MANHATTAN –The Kansas Department of Agriculture (KDA), K-State Research and Extension and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment will host four regional workshops in 2016 to assist farmers’ market vendors and managers. Kansas farmers’ markets not only provide a fresh food source, but also stimulate the local economy. In 2015, 56 farmers’ markets were registered with KDA’s Central Registration of Farmers’ Markets. “While selling food directly to consumers through farmers’ markets provides growers a chance to tell their farm’s story, there are also legal, safety and financial parameters that farmers need to understand before choosing this marketing tool,” said Londa Nwadike, consumer food safety specialist with K-State Research and Extension and the University of Missouri. Workshop topics will vary slightly by location. Highlighted topics include: Planning your production planting for market season; Food safety requirements and updates; Vendor panels on marketing and other best practices; Value-added food product safety; Accepting non-cash payments (EBT, SFMNP). KDA’s Division of Weights and Measures will also offer free scale certification at the workshops for attendees. Dates and locations are as follows: Jan. 29 – KSU Agriculture Research Center, 1232 240th Ave., Hays. Feb. 6 – KSU Sedgwick County Extension Office, 7001 W. 21st Street N., Wichita. Feb. 20 – KSU Research and Extension Southeast Center, 25092 Ness Rd., Parsons. March 11 – KSU Olathe, 22201 W. Innovation Dr., Olathe. Early-bird registration is $20 and closes 10 days prior to the event. Participants can also register after the early-bird registration or on site for $25. Registration includes lunch. Registration forms can be found at FromtheLandofKansas. com/FMConference or at the local extension offices.

These budgeting tips can help you spend sanely THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU

If you’re like many Americans, you may have resolved to get a handle on your finances this year. Take heart because there is plenty of reason for optimism: You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. There are some triedand-true methods that have worked for many, and they can for you as well. The Better Business Bureau has the following advice for anyone attempting to rein in household budgets during the new year: Do this first It’s vital to get an accurate picture of your current situation. Many are in denial about their spending, waiting until a crisis arises to deal with it. By that point, it can be much too late for effective action. Being proactive makes the most sense. Because our perceptions regarding our spending habits can be off base, a key step in getting things under control is keeping an exact

record of our spending. There are phone apps, computer software programs and even old-fashioned notebooks available to help you do this. Seeing where you are actually spending your money rather than relying on your memory of it, can be an eye-opening and even jolting experience. Categorize Break down your spending into separate categories. The two common main divisions are “necessities” and “luxuries.” “Necessities” include housing, utilities, food and

transportation. Household furnishings, operations like lawn care and housekeeping supplies also fall within this category. A subcategory of “necessities” would be “debt reduction.” This involves credit-card balances, student loans, car payments and any other amounts owed to debtors. “Luxuries” include entertainment, dining out and travel expenses. As the name implies, this category is for anything that isn’t vital. Set up a budget Once you have all of the above information readily available, over a short course of time you will begin to see your spending patterns. You can start identifying fluctuations that require your attention. Questions will arise about why some costs rise, others decrease and which remain stable. These numbers provide the vital information needed as you set up a budget and predict future spending.

Free online tools are available to help you with this part of your process. Just be cautious about sharing personal information with anyone online who may not be trustworthy. Goals Paying down debt and saving for the future are common goals for those working on their budgets. There are two predominant methods for paying down debt. You may either decide to make your goal paying off the smallest balances first (giving you a quicker sense of accomplishment) or you may want to work methodically toward paying off the debt with the biggest interest rate. The latter may take longer but have greater financial advantages for you. What’s important is that you set the goal and stick to it. Online bill pay is a great tool to help you. You don’t have to write checks, buy stamps and mail the payment. Scheduling automatic

A lot of people like to paint ceramics.” Generally, Matthews said, a group will rent the studio for a session, with all supplies provided. For the wine and paint sessions, participants bring their own wine. If it’s arranged as a private party, people under 18 can attend a wine and paint session if they do not drink, although ones sponsored by Matthews are limited to those ages 21 and older. “I’ve always done crafts and projects, and I love it,” said Matthews, 30, explaining how she took over the business. “I had a mutual friend of the previous owner who knew I have a feel for creativity, but also am more stable business-wise. The previous owner was very artistic, but not into getting the word out about the business.” Prior to opening the studio, Matthews, a graduate of Nickerson High School who studied architectural drafting in college, worked for a granite company in Florida. She returned here to raise her children and she worked in daycare. “I’m good at working with kids,” she said. “It’s fun for families to

Wilkinson said the league had decided to implement the same terms that were reached by the NHL even without a settlement in place. “We’re at a bit of a loss of why we can’t come to a resolution,” Wilkinson said then. Scheindlin ruled in 2013 that baseball could not use its antitrust exemption to defend against the lawsuit. The lawsuits had claimed

that the leagues’ clubs and some television broadcast entities collude to eliminate competition in the airing of games on the Internet and on television. Baseball had defended a system of issuing television contracts developed decades ago that was designed to protect each baseball team’s region from competitors. More recently, baseball has multiplied options for fans so that they can get games on various electronic devices. “Make no mistake, this mission is not altruistic,” baseball’s lawyers said in court papers written last month. “Baseball faces fierce competition, including from other sports offerings and an increasing slate of non-sports entertainment and leisure

options.” Last month, plaintiffs’ lawyer Edward Diver wrote in court papers that baseball had created a monopoly that cheats fans because out-ofmarket games can only be obtained through the league at prices the league chooses. He said the current system resulted after MLB agreed in the early 1980s to divide the country into geographic territories so only one or a few teams could distribute game in any area. “Here again, the very purpose of the agreement is to create this monopoly power: to insulate teams from competition and increase their ability to market their product without any fear of being outcompeted by other baseball teams,” Diver wrote.

Freight Farms has sold 54 Leafy Green Machines, with ones already in operation on Google’s campus in Mountain View, California; Stony Brook University on Long Island; and Four Burgers, a restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

College to serve as testing center for insurance entity McPHERSON – Central Christian College of Kansas announced that The Institutes of Malvern, Pa., the leading professional development source for the U.S. insurance industry, has approved the college to serve as an official onsite testing center for The Institutes as of Jan. 1. This follows the launching of the first Risk Management Insurance major at Central Christian College, the first of its kind in the state of Kansas. This fall, six new students declared risk management as their intended major, commencing the first class of students. Furthermore, 22 students are enrolled in the introductory insurance course, which will be offered this coming spring at Central Christian College. This program began as a response to local, state and national demand for qualified insurance professionals. Farmers Alliance Companies

contacted Dr. David Ferrell, Business Department chair, several years ago about the possibility of offering courses on campus to fulfill an employment gap due to large numbers of Farmers Alliance employees scheduled to retire over the next five to 10 years. This eventually led to a full major in risk management and insurance patterned after leading universities in the country. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the need for 290,000 positions nationally in all areas of insurance by 2022. Farmers Alliance provides the professionals to teach the insurance courses. The first three insurance courses, along with an ethics component, leads to a professional designation, the Associate of General Insurance (AINS), recognized throughout the insurance industry. The successful completion of the appropriate onsite exams qualifies the student to receive the designation and gives the recipient an advantage in the insurance employment market. These same courses are offered to the public. Courses are taught by seasoned professionals from Farmers Alliance. The next course is AINS 21, Introduction to Risk Management and Insurance, starting Monday, Feb. 1, at 7:30 a.m., meeting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through early May. This course, combined with AINS 22 (Personal Insurance) and AINS 23 (Commercial Insurance) will lead to the AINS. If you are interested in creating a career in the insurance industry or you desire more details on available courses, contact Ferrell at (620) 241-0723, ext. 348, or email him at david.ferrell@

State of the Disunion Obama didn’t make a more united America; we the people now tasked


resident Barack Obama gave a good self-assessment of his presidency during his final State of the Union speech. He owned up to the biggest failure of his eight years – failing to unite a deeply divided nation, calling it a lasting disappointment. “It’s one of the few regrets of my presidency, that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better,” Obama said, adding that “a president with the gifts of Lincoln or Roosevelt might have better bridged the divide.” He is right. His presidency was a failure in this respect. It might not have been so except that he campaigned in 2008 on “hope and change,” and it was his theme that we “are not red states and blue states but the United States” that resonated with an electorate yearning for change. Maybe he set the bar too high, or maybe we the citizenry had too high of expectations. But eight years later, the reality is that the divide is wider and deeper. He either didn’t have the skills to unite the country or it was an impossible task. That said, America is hardly the nation on the brink of complete collapse that so many

Republican candidates portray it to be – using their debate Thursday to sling most of the arrows at a man who isn’t running for office and will retire at the end of the year. Obama inherited a nation in its worst financial condition since the Great Depression and oversaw an economic recovery with more job growth than the Bush I and Bush II presidencies combined. It didn’t get turned around overnight, and it hasn’t been especially robust, but this country’s economy was in shambles in 2008 and is stable today. Obama also inherited two wars, and while he’s reduced the level of U.S. engagement, U.S. military presence remains in the Middle East, and Islamic terrorism is no less a threat today. The state of the Union is better today than it was eight years ago, but indeed Obama was no Lincoln or Roosevelt. He had the oratory skills of Kennedy but maybe set himself up to be a disappointment because he promised so much. And most of all, he didn’t prove to be a uniter. He instead was a divider. We as Americans never should stop dreaming of being a better nation, but we can’t expect any ordinary man to unite us. We’ve got to start doing that ourselves.

Tattooed troopers Opinions likely will vary on the issue, so survey is good


ansas has a shortage of Kansas Highway Patrol troopers that is well-known. The patrol is currently understaffed by about 80 troopers for its 500 positions. Many counties don’t have a trooper, and several efforts are underway to address that. One seeks additional money from fees to provide better pay for troopers. The patrol itself is contemplating another, which is more colorful. Currently, those applying for positions as troopers are immediately disqualified if they have visible tattoos. That prohibition has been in place since 2008, and it’s unknown how many would-be troopers have been turned away because of it. It’s also unknown how many people have chosen not to apply because of the tattoo ban. It’s good that the patrol is at least thinking about doing away with the no-tattoo rule. It’s even better that the public is being asked its opinion on the matter. Residents can do that by going online to take a short survey (http:// It’s available through Jan. 29. The demographic question on age might be the most interesting one, as older people could be against the tattooed troopers, while the younger crowd, which is much more accustomed to tattoos, likely doesn’t have a problem with it. Another question is whether or not the person taking the survey has a tattoo. Of course, the survey also includes questions pertaining to the law enforcement angle. For example, respondents are asked if they agree or disagree with such statements as “The Kansas Highway Patrol should only allow tattoos that are covered by the uniform” and “Tattoos distract from a law enforcement officer’s professionalism.” Another question regards the appropriateness of tattoos that troopers can have in various categories. Those include nudity, profanity, religious images and a wedding band. The patrol hasn’t said if it will amend its rule based on the survey. But at least opinions are being sought. Thanks for asking.

New Year’s resolutions The beginning of a new year provides the opportunity to look back and resolve to improve. Improvement means kicking bad habits for some, losing weight, or some other positive life change. Here in Kansas, the New Year of renewal is punctuated by a new legislative session, which gaveled open earlier this week. What New Year’s resolutions have Kansas political figures chosen? I have some ideas: The Kansas Legislature: Stop Procrastinating. The House should have learned from last year’s exercise in hubris that they must address their issues early. Waiting until late in the session to produce a budget and panicking into overtime gave the legislature a black eye from which it has not recovered. In an election year, legislators simply cannot afford more bad publicity. The Legislature should vow not to waste daylight in 2016. The Kansas Department of the Budget Consensus Revenue Estimating Group: Adopting a New Forecasting Model. The “Glide Path to Zero” tax plan has been brutal on the Kansas budget, but the optics of revenues are worthy of attention as well. The Consensus Revenue Estimating Group (CREG) has over-estimated state revenues for almost every month of the last two years. News reports of below-expected revenues have dogged the Brownback Administration and have called the CREG’s ability to forecast into doubt. It’s hard enough to budget

Insight Kansas

Chapman Rackaway under declining revenues but when income fails to make expectation it’s even harder. The Kansas Democratic Party: Decisiveness. The Democrats in Kansas have a decision to make. Go all-in on trying to pick off state legislators in 2016 or continue working on their organization in preparation for an all-out assault on the Governor’s mansion for 2018. But the time to decide is now. After snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in 2014, Democrats in the state have had some time to lick wounds and reflect on their missed opportunities. Making a wise decision to focus their attention on not making the same mistakes of 2014 would make a Democratic candidate for governor much more viable in 2018, when Governor Sam Brownback is barred from seeking office again. Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer: Get to Know Me. Lieutenant governors are often as visible as Wonder Woman’s plane, and Colyer has only been an exception when his contributions to the Brownback re-election effort came under scrutiny. But Colyer has recently raised his profile, largely testing



the waters for a 2018 gubernatorial run. Colyer’s tenure has been undistinguished, but in a multi-way Republican primary his connections to the state GOP machinery could be a significant advantage. Colyer’s biggest issue, besides the campaign contributions, is low name recognition versus other viable Republican possibilities like Attorney General Derek Schmidt and Secretary and State Kris Kobach. So if Colyer is serious about a run in 2018, he needs to start sharing his story with Kansas. Moderate Kansas Republicans: Aggression. Since being decimated in 2012, moderate Republicans have kept a low profile, which some interpreted as their demise. However, five moderate Republicans have already filed against incumbents for the August primaries, suggesting that the center-right might be in play for a return to the Legislature in 2016. To do so, though, they will need a strong candidate base, and even stronger campaign infrastructure. Without an aggressive campaign, moderates will not have the success they are striving for in 2016. Kansas is facing great challenges, and looking back on the travails of the last five years give political figures a good opportunity to figure out how to make 2016 a better year. For all our sakes, best of luck to them all. Chapman Rackaway is a professor of political science at Fort Hays State University.

Nikki Haley living in Fantasyland

Hillary Clinton: Slip slidin’ away

Nikki Haley’s 44th birthday is this week. You would think her a little old for fairytales. But a bizarre, little-reported remark the South Carolina governor made last week suggests that Haley lives in Fantasyland, at least insofar as American history is concerned. The comment in question came the day after her Tuesday night speech in response to President Obama’s State of the Union address, in which she cuffed Donald Trump for his strident anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant bigotry. Haley told reporters, “When you’ve got immigrants who are coming here legally, we’ve never in the history of this country passed any laws or done anything based on race or religion.” Some observers found that an astonishing thing for her to say as chief executive of the first state to secede from the Union in defense of slavery, a state that embraced segregation until forced to change by the federal government. Others observed that any fair reading of Haley’s quote makes it pretty clear she was speaking only in the context of legal immigration. They’re right. The problem is, even if you concede that point, Haley is still grotesquely wrong. She thinks no immigration laws have been passed “based on race or religion”? What about: The Naturalization Act of 1790, which extended citizenship to “any alien, being a free white person...”? Or the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, whose title and intent are self-explanatory? Or the Immigration Act of 1917, which banned immigrants from East Asia and the Pacific? Or Ozawa v. U.S., the 1922 Supreme Court decision which declared that Japanese immigrants could not be naturalized? So yes, however you slice it, Haley is wrong and Haley is ignorant. But one wonders if Haley is to blame. Americans, the historian Ray Arsenault once said, live by “mythic conceptions of what they think happened” in the past. And as school systems, under pressure from conservative school boards, retreat from teaching that which embarrasses the nation’s self-image, as textbooks are scrubbed of painfully inconvenient truths, as standards requiring the teaching of only “positive aspects” of American history are imposed, we find those mythic conceptions encroaching reality to a troubling degree. Suddenly, slaves become immigrants and settlers. The Civil War has nothing to do with slavery. Martin Luther King becomes a tea party member. And America has never passed laws “based on race and religion.” Yes, Haley’s ignorance might be willful. There’s surely a lot of that going around. But it might also be that she’s simply part of that generation which has been taught fairytales under the guise of history. Such teaching will leave you comfortably indoctrinated in a kind of civic mythology – and wholly unprepared to interpret or contextualize what’s happening before your eyes. To wit: What makes Donald Trump’s proposed restrictions on Muslims troubling is not that they represent the coming of something new, but the return of something old, a shameful strain in the American psyche that we have seen too many times before. It is not a deviation from America, but the very stuff of America, an ugly scapegoating that has too often besmirched our character. This is something all of us should know, but do not. As a state official, perhaps a candidate for vice president, perhaps eventually a president of the United States, Nikki Haley might someday change history. It would be good if she understood it first. Email Leonard Pitts at

“Slip slidin’ away Slip slidin’ away You know the nearer your destination The more you’re slip slidin’ away.” – Paul Simon

The state of the presidency: spent WASHINGTON – President Obama’s Tuesday night address to Congress was less about the state of the union than the state of the presidency. And the state of this presidency is spent. The signs of intellectual exhaustion were everywhere. Consider just three. After taking credit for success in Syria, raising American stature abroad and prevailing against the Islamic State – one claim more surreal than the next – Obama was forced to repair to his most wellworn talking point: “If you doubt America’s commitment – or mine – to see that justice is done, just ask Osama bin Laden.” Really? Five years later, that’s all you’ve got? Indeed, it is. What else can Obama say? Talk about Crimea? Cite Yemen, Libya, Iraq, the South China Sea, the return of the Taliban? “Surveys show our standing around the world is higher than when I was elected to this office,” Obama boasted. Surveys, mind you. As if superpower influence is a Miss Universe contest. As if the world doesn’t see our allies adrift, our enemies on the march and our sailors kneeling, hands behind their heads, in front of armed Iranians, then forced to apologize on camera. (And our secretary of state expressing appreciation to Iran after their subsequent release.) On the domestic side, Obama’s agenda was fairly short, in keeping with his lame-duck status. It was still startling when he worked up a passion for a great “new moonshot”: curing cancer. Is there a more hackneyed national-greatness cliche than the idea that if we can walk on the moon ... ? Or a more hackneyed facsimile of vision than being “the nation that cures cancer”? Do Obama’s

Charles Krauthammer speechwriters not know that it was Richard Nixon who first declared a war on cancer – in 1971? But to see just how bare is the cupboard of ideas of the nation’s most vaunted liberal visionary, we had to wait for the stunning anachronism that was the speech finale. It was designed for inspiration and uplift. And for some liberal observers, it actually worked. They were thrilled by the soaring tones as Obama called for, yes, a new politics – a post-partisan spirit of mutual understanding, rational discourse and respect for one’s opponents. Why, it was hope and change all over again. You’d have thought we were back in 2008 with Obama’s moving, stirring promise of a new and higher politics that had young people swooning in the aisles and a TV anchor thrilling up the leg – and gave Obama the White House. Or even further back to 2004, when Obama electrified the nation with his Democratic convention speech: “There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.” Tuesday night, Obama did an undisguised, almost phrase-forphrase reprise of that old promise. Earnestly, he urged us to “see ourselves not, first and foremost, as black or white, or Asian or Latino, not as gay or straight, immigrant or native born, not as Democrats or Republicans, but as Americans first.” On cue, various commentators

were moved by this sermon summoning our better angels. Good grief. I can understand falling for this 12 years ago. But now? A cheap self-quotation, a rhetorical mulligan, from a man who had two presidential terms to act on that transformative vision and instead gave us the most divisive, partisan, tendentious presidency since Nixon. Rational discourse and respect for one’s opponents? This is a man who campaigned up and down the country throughout 2011 and 2012 saying that he cares about posterity, Republicans only about power. The man who accused opponents of his Iran treaty of “making common cause” with Iranians “chanting death to America.” The man who, after Paul Ryan proposed a courageous, controversial entitlement reform, gave a presidential address – with Ryan, invited by the White House, seated in the first row – calling his ideas un-American. In a final touch of irony, Obama included in his wistful rediscovery of a more elevated politics an expression of reverence for, of all things, how “our founders distributed power between ... branches of government.” This after years of repeatedly usurping Congress’ legislative power with unilateral executive orders and regulations on everything from criminal justice to climate change to immigration (already halted by the courts). There is wisdom to the 22nd Amendment. After two terms, presidents are spent. Nothing shows it like a State of the Union valedictory repeating the hollow promises of the yesteryear candidate – as if the intervening presidency had never occurred. Charles Krauthammer’s email address is letters@charleskrauthammer. com.

It’s happening again. The “inevitability” of Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy may not be so inevitable after all. Unlike eight years ago when Barack Obama beat her for the Democratic nomination and ultimately won the office Hillary and her supporters believed she was entitled to, this time her main opponent is not just Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist, it is Hillary Clinton herself. Serious investigations into Richard Nixon’s Watergate crimes did not begin until after his landslide win in 1972. With Clinton, damaging investigations are occurring in the middle of her campaign. Catherine Herridge, chief intelligence correspondent for the Fox News Channel, reports: “The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state has expanded to look at whether the possible ‘intersection’ of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources not authorized to speak on the record told Fox News. This track is in addition to the focus on classified material found on Clinton’s personal server.” As notes, “Hillary Clinton’s support among Democrats nationally has taken a serious tumble, falling eight points to 43 percent, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. Support for her chief rival, Bernie Sanders, rose six points to 39 percent. As a result, Clinton’s lead over Sanders, which had been 18 points, is now just four points.” According to a new poll, Clinton and Sanders are in tight races in both Iowa and New Hampshire. With less than three weeks before the Iowa caucuses, such numbers are not good news for any candidate, especially Clinton, whose veracity and job record in the various offices and positions she has held are anything but stellar. Very quickly, she has gone from big mo, to slow mo, to no mo. Americans wisely don’t fully trust politicians of either party, but Hillary Clinton suffers more than most. Last August, a Quinnipiac University poll found that only 34 percent of those surveyed believed Clinton is “honest and trustworthy.” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the poll, reports, said that Clinton is experiencing a “continuing slide” with how she is “perceived by voters who continue to say she is not honest and trustworthy.” Democrats are likely worried not just about whether Clinton can win the nomination – odds still favor that – but whether she will be further damaged by the FBI probes and whether that damage could possibly lead to an indictment, as some Republicans hope. Donald Trump has added to Clinton’s woes by bringing up her husband’s past behavior toward women at a time when she has positioned herself as the women’s champion. Voices are being heard among the political classes about the possibility of replacing Clinton on the ticket with Vice President Joe Biden should that become necessary. Such a move could severely impair the Democrat’s ability to win the female vote. In a highly unpredictable political year, the scenario would take unpredictability to a new level. I saw a bumper sticker recently that proclaimed the driver was “Ready for Hillary.” With the candidate’s disapproval numbers rising and her approval numbers slip slidin’ away, it doesn’t appear that too many other voters are, in fact, ready.

Chiefs’ magical run haulted by Brady, Patriots, time management BY DENNIS WASZAK JR. AP Sports Writer


OXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Kansas City Chiefs’ comeback attempt came up short – and took way too long. Trailing the New England Patriots by two touchdowns, Alex Smith and the offense burned more than 5 minutes off the clock to score, a mismanaged try that left the Chiefs with a 27-20 loss on Saturday that ended their 11-game winning streak. “It’s a fine line of getting into the best play and just keep going at the line of scrimmage,” Smith said. “It would’ve been nice to get a score before the two-minute warning. It would’ve helped tremendously with three timeouts. It probably hurt us there.” The Chiefs (12-6) were at the Patriots 20-yard line with 3 minutes left when Smith completed a 19-yard pass to Albert Wilson. Andy Reid called for a run, and Charcandrick West lost a yard. Then came the two-minute warning. “We wanted to get a play off right there. We had 20 seconds,” Reid said. “It was 2:20 on the clock. We wanted to make sure that we got our best personnel in for that play and we didn’t get that done.” A false start penalty on left tackle

Jason Avant caught a 4-yard pass to put the ball at the 3, and a defensive pass interference penalty on Logan Ryan put the Chiefs back at the 1. After an incomplete pass, West ran it in for a touchdown – but there was only 1:13 left in the game.

“We went hurry-up offense,” Reid said. “You normally do that when you’re down by two scores. Time was of the essence. We got down to the 1-yard line and ended up going backward.” A desperation onside kick by the Chiefs was recovered by Rob

A home win and signs that Nickerson cares BY KELTON BROOKS The Hutchinson News

On a chilly night in Nickerson Tuesday, coach Brittany Hines was trying to assess the warmth of the home crowd as if reality of the Panther Blue had eluded her. It was an odd sense of unfamiliarity as she soaked in the appreciative ovation as the fans trickled in to view the first home game in two weeks. “It’s nice to be able to get back on our home floor finally,” Hines said before Tuesday’s game against

Gronkowski, and Kansas City never got another chance. “It gives us a great example of where we need to be,” Reid said. The Chiefs were trying to get to the AFC championship game for the first time since the 1993 season, but there were simply too many mistakes – the type Kansas City rarely made during its franchise-record streak. And, the Patriots capitalized. “There were probably a lot of opportunities that we left out on the field,” safety Eric Berry said. In Kansas City’s first five trips into New England territory, the Chiefs managed just two field goals by Cairo Santos. There was also the 19-yard punt return by Frankie Hammond Jr. that gave the Chiefs the ball at the Patriots 36. They lost a yard and were forced to punt on the three-and-out. “You’ve got to be able to take advantage of that when it comes,” Smith said. “You don’t know when you’re going to get opportunities like that with that kind of field position, right on the fringe of field-goal range. I mean, if you get any yards there, you’ve probably got points and we weren’t able to do anything.” Smith finished 29 of 50 for 246 yards with a touchdown, but clearly missed

Hutchinson High sophomore Kasey Hazell shoots the ball during the WATC Basketball Challenge against Wichita North on Saturday at Wichita State University’s Charles Koch Arena.

Hutch • From Page D1 even Tomac conceded that she perhaps should have done something different. “That was probably a shot I shouldn’t have taken,” Tomac said. “I’m glad it went in, or I would have been in some trouble.” The Salthawks were in trouble up to that point. They led by as many as 12 points in the third quarter and 10 points in the fourth quarter. But like on Friday in a two-point loss to Salina South, the Salthawks failed to put the game away when they had a comfortable lead. When Marissa Evans had a steal and layup with 2:50 left in the game, Wichita North was down just 40-38. North even had two chances to tie or go ahead. “We’ve just got to learn how finish games,” Stiggins said. “We haven’t been in this position often. We need to work in practice on time and score situations. We built a 12-point lead, but then we started getting lackadaisical with the ball.”

Hutchinson at least shot the ball with confidence most of the game. Eight different Salthawks scored, and they got two 3-pointers from Brooke Ackley, and one each from Connor Atkinson and Kaylee Buckaloo. “After we woke up in the first half, we hit some shots and got a good cushion,” Ackley said. “That was good because they came back on us in the fourth quarter. If we hadn’t made those shots, we would have been in trouble.” Kind of like Tomac had she missed that clutch shot. Chaliese Scales started the play with a two-on-one fastbreak. Scales drove to the free-throw line and saw Tomac wide open on the baseline. North’s Alex Condit was defending, and she opted to stay with Scales. Tomac looked at the basket and didn’t hesitate dropping in the biggest shot of the game.

TURNING POINT: Tied 6-6 early in the second quarter, Hutchinson went on an 8-0 run, and Connor Atkinson’s 12-foot jumper gave the Salthawks a lead they never

relinquished. PLAYERS OF THE GAME: The Hutchinson bench was the difference. Micah Tomac, Abbey Hefley, Jordan Middleton, Madyson Regier and Kaylee Buckaloo combined to score 12 points and grab 12 rebounds. Compare that to North’s bench, which combined for one point and six rebounds.

Simons sparks HCC men in road win at Colby BY KYLE MCCASKEY The Hutchinson News

COLBY – When a team needs to stop a three-game losing streak, the seldom used guard deep on the bench may not be the first place to look to try to scavenger up energy, but for Hutchinson Community College men’s basketball, it was the right place to look. Sophomore Ty Simons might never stick out on the stat sheet – he had one point and four rebounds in six minutes of game action. But Simons was in the thick of it as the No. 10 Blue Dragons (17-3, 6-3 in the Jayhawk) pulled away for a walloping 96-69 victory over Colby (12-7, 5-4) on Saturday. “We know he works hard in practice,” said Hutchinson freshman guard Samajae Haynes-Jones. “It reflects in game situations, and he gave us big minutes out there.” Hutchinson found itself in foul trouble early at the guard position. James Conley, in his first start of the season, picked up two fouls 56 seconds into the game. Sophomore Akbar Hoffman later was mired in fouls, too. Simons played sparingly in 11 previous games, but he was had his team’s trust. “I had confidence Ty could step in and take that spot,” said Hutchinson coach Steve Eck. “I had no hesitation to put him in.” Hutchinson held a 21-14 lead when arguably Colby’s

THE QUICK HIT NO. 10 HUTCHINSON CC MEN 96, COLBY CC 69 KEY STAT: Colby’s Hassan Attia, the Trojans’ best post presence, only played 8 minutes, 27 seconds of the first half due to foul trouble. TURNING POINT: Colby used a 6-0 run to pull within 16 with 11:48 to go in the game. With Hutchinson’s recent struggles, it could have been worrisome, but the Blue Dragons came out of a timeout with a 6-0

run of their own in less than a minute to pull their lead back to 22. PLAYER OF THE GAME: Hutchinson’s Samajae Haynes-Jones came out firing early, knocking down three 3-pointers as the Blue Dragons built a 19-9 lead. Haynes-Jones finished with 23 points on 7-of11 shooting and added three steals. HE SAID IT: “Just take pride in defense and

rebounding ... When I’m called on, I’m going to play with energy and do what I do.” – Hutchinson reserve guard Ty Simons. UP NEXT: The Blue Dragons (17-3, 6-3 in the Jayhawk) face Seward County (15-4, 5-3) at the Sports Arena on Wednesday. Colby (12-7, 5-4) is on the road at conference leader Barton (14-5, 6-2).

“It feels so good to get a win. For real. I hate losing, and everyone else in that locker room hates losing.” HCC’s Ty Simons two best players, Brian Starr and Hassan Attia, picked up their second fouls within 10 seconds of each other with 8:39 left in the first half. It then became a battle of who had the deeper bench. It was Hutchinson, with Simons as the spark. “Ty gets rebounds in practice. He gets rebounds in games when he shouldn’t,” Eck said. With Attia and Starr playing only sporadically down the stretch of the first half, Hutchinson turned the momentum their way. The Blue Dragons extended their lead to 20 by halftime. “I guess it’s more frustration that we didn’t come

out and act like we wanted to play basketball in the first 20 minutes of the first half,” said Colby coach Rusty Grafel. “We played maybe three minutes of basketball the whole game.” Simons was vital to Hutchinson’s surge to end the first half. He twice slithered around taller defenders to chase down offensive rebounds. He played strong defense. Perhaps most importantly, he just gave the Blue Dragons a burst of energy and tenacity, the kind that a team needs when it is trying block out the frustrations that come with a losing streak.

COLBY – Hutchinson Community College freshman Lakin Preisner nearly made it the entire game without a turnover, but with nine seconds left, an errant pass toward teammate Inja Butina was intercepted by Colby. The No. 8 Blue Dragons were infected with the turnover bug, and almost no one was immune. “We did a very poor job of taking care of the basketball,” said Hutchinson coach John Ontjes. “We made very poor decisions everywhere on the floor, from our guards to our high post play.” Hutchinson (18-1, 8-1 in the Jayhawk) won comfortably anyway against a Colby (4-16, 0-9) squad not equipped to take advantage of the Blue Dragons’ carelessness. Hutchinson picked up an 85-54 road win, but did so in spite of 22 turnovers. That tied for the Blue Dragons’ season high in giveaways. “I think it was a onetime thing,” Preisner said. “I really don’t know, but I hope it was a one-time thing.” Hutchinson freshman guard Shayla DeGarmo was the only player to avoid a turnover for Hutchinson while playing nearly 20 minutes. Preisner’s late lapse in judgement was her lone turnover in 35 minutes of game time. They were the exceptions, not the norm. The rest of their teammates each had at least two. Kirea Rogers turned the ball over five times in 14 minutes. Kyla Williams and Inja Butina both committed four turnovers, though Butina minimized damage with seven assists. “It is a four-hour drive, but no excuses,” DeGarmo said. For their part, the Blue Dragons put the game away early. After Colby’s Amber Perryman sank a 3-pointer to cut the Trojans’ deficit to 8-5,

Hutchinson steamrolled Colby with 16 straight points. That was polished off by eight consecutive points from Hutchinson’s Taylor Stahly, including two 3-pointers. Stahly finished with a game-high 22 points, including 6-for-11 from long range. The final margin overshadowed Hutchinson’s mistakes. “Frustrated, yes,” Preisner said. “I know everyone has those couple turnovers, but I feel like some of them weren’t seeing the defense.” The Blue Dragons committed eight turnovers in the first nine minutes of the game. They quickly coughed up four more in the first 3 1/2 minutes of the third quarter. “To say that there was a great effort by our ballclub in the middle of January, when we want to play our best basketball – it was not,” Ontjes said. Colby, for its part, deserved some credit. Active hands poked away 14 steals. It was not enough for the Trojans, a team that averages 50 points per game. But if Hutchinson is similarly sloppy against No. 22 Seward County on Wednesday – a team that hangs 77 points per game – Hutchinson will have a hard time separating. “That was not one of our better games, I think. Personally, I think we overlooked them,” Preisner said. “We were not good passers. That’s not going to get us a win against Seward.” NO. 8 HUTCHINSON CC 85, COLBY CC 54 Hutchinson CC (18-1, 8-1) Preisner 4-8 4-4 14, Butina 3-5 4-4 11, Terry 2-4 0-0 5, Madden 6-8 1-1 13, Stahly 7-12 2-2 22, DeGarmo 1-7 0-0 2, Williams 6-7 2-2 14, Rogers 1-4 2-2 4.

THE QUICK HIT HCC WOMEN 85, COLBY 54 KEY STAT: The Blue Dragons doubled up Colby on the glass, out rebounding the Trojans 48-23. TURNING POINT: After a 3-pointer cut Hutchinson’s lead to 8-5, the Blue Dragons ran off the next 16 points for a 19-point edge. PLAYER OF THE GAME: Hutchinson’s Lakin Preisner was her team’s best all-around player this game, filling her plate with 14 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks. She only committed one turnover. SHE SAID IT: “I think some people, yes. Some people sleep on the bus. They get drowsy. They’re still on the bus, as coach would put it.” – Hutchinson’s Lakin Preisner on if the drive to Colby affects players. UP NEXT: Hutchinson (18-1, 8-1 in the Jayhawk) is back home for a showdown of ranked teams against No. 22 Seward County (14-4, 6-2) on Wednesday. Colby (4-16, 0-9) has an 11-game losing streak as it travels to Barton (10-9, 2-6).

Maclin was limited to two catches for 23 yards. “I appreciate him for going out there and trying to go,” Smith said of Maclin. “No one expected it. It was pretty gutty.” Maclin said he pushed his ankle as far as he could, considering the season was on the line. “I tried to play, and I did,” he said. “And then it came to a point where the pain kind of took over and it was time for me to come out of the game.” Travis Kelce led the Chiefs with six catches for just 23 yards, while Wilson had five receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown. Chris Conley also had five catches as Smith connected with 10 receivers.

Chiefs mum on Pederson reports to Eagles BY DENNIS WASZAK JR. AP Sports Writer

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Kansas City Chiefs will miss Doug Pederson – if he’s leaving. The team was mum on reports the offensive Pederson coordinator is in line to replace Chip Kelly as coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. The Chiefs’ season ended Saturday with a 2720 loss to the New England Patriots. “We’ll see how things roll here in the next couple of days,” said Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who coached the Eagles for 14 years before being fired after the 2012 season and coming to Kansas City in 2013.

The 47-year-old Pederson has been regarded as an up-and-coming head coach candidate, and The Associated Press reported Thursday he had accepted an offer to become Philadelphia’s coach, according to a person with knowledge of the decision. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Eagles had not officially announced the hiring, needing to wait for the conclusion of the Chiefs’ season. Pederson has been Reid’s offensive coordinator with the Chiefs after previously serving under him for four seasons in Philadelphia, first as offensive quality control coordinator and then quarterbacks coach. “I know he interviewed for the job and you hear all the reports and this and that, obviously all unofficial,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. “If that’s

the case, I’m happy for him. He’s the real deal, a really, really good coach. He’s going to be a great head coach, if that’s the case. Just has that quality about him, that coolness, he can relate to players. I think he will be great at it.” Pederson played quarterback for 12 seasons in the NFL, mostly as a backup – a role in which he performed for seven years behind Brett Favre in Green Bay. “He’s the man,” Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce said. “We love him just as much as any coach on here. We know how important he is and how valuable he is. Obviously, I wish him the best of luck over there in Philly, and I know he’ll be a great coach. I think he’s ready for anything that anybody throws at him. That guy works harder than anybody I’ve ever seen.”

“I appreciate him for going out there and trying to go. No one expected it. It was pretty gutty.” Alex Smith on Jeremy Maclin playing including touchdowns from 8 and 16 yards. Julian Edelman returned from a broken foot to catch 10 passes for 100 yards for New England. After trading punts twice, the Patriots started on their 2 when punt returner Danny Amendola was flagged for a helmet-first hit to coverage man Jamell Fleming. The drive was in danger of stalling at the Kansas City

35 when Chiefs linebacker Dezman Moses hit Brady late and was called for roughing the passer. Four plays later, unable to find an open receiver, Brady sprinted – sort of – for the corner of the end zone. The Chiefs managed to keep him out, but only for one more play. On the next snap, Brady leaned forward and reached into the end zone to make it 14-3.

Patriots defensive lineman Chandler Jones forced Knile Davis’ fumble on the Chiefs’ first possession of the second half, then Brady added another touchdown pass to Gronkowski to make it 21-6. “I never felt we were out of it,” Reid said. “That’s not how I felt in this game. That’s why I look forward to the next opportunity that we have like this.”

Nickerson was in its infant stages of learning how to win, learning how to play for each other and, quite frankly, learning how to buy into the teachings of a first-year coach who could disguise herself as player if she threw on a jersey. But Hines made it happen. She made it happen on the road and it was only a matter of time before it happened at home. The first-year coach went into Tuesday night’s game with confidence as she does any other game, but she felt Halstead was an intriguing matchup for Nickerson. She couldn’t have known her team was going to fall behind by 12 points. No way assistant coach Sean Bueford knew the girls were going to drain bucket after bucket to storm back. Heck, assistant coach Kim Patterson had a look of disbelief before erupting as sophomore Sophie Mader connected on a shot after she was fouled to send the game to overtime.

Bragg, Diallo provide spark off bench BY DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer

LAWRENCE – Kansas coach Bill Self has long insisted that five-star recruits Carlton Bragg and Cheick Diallo might be the best players on his team – five years down the line. They might have been the best on Saturday. Bragg had 10 points and four rebounds, Diallo had nine points and nine boards, and their spark off the bench helped the top-ranked Jayhawks to an otherwise sluggish 70-63 victory over TCU. “Coach is always telling them to be ready when their number is called,” Kansas guard Devonte Graham said. “And in practice, you can see them getting better and better each week, and they’re going to be huge for us down the stretch.” Wayne Selden Jr. had 11 points and Graham and Perry Ellis added 10 points apiece for Kansas (15-2, 4-1 Big 12), which bounced back nicely from its loss at West Virginia earlier in the week. It was the 33rd consecutive win at Allen Fieldhouse for Kansas, matching the fourth-best streak in school history. It was also the Jayhawks’ seven straight win over the Horned Frogs. “I was happy with Carlton, I thought he did some things in the first half,” Self said, “and I thought Cheick was a presence for the most part.” Michael Williams had 13 points and Brandon Parrish and Chauncey Collins scored 11 apiece for TCU (9-8, 1-4), which remained close for a while thanks to a


70 63

flurry of early 3-pointers. The Jayhawks eventually took the perimeter away, and their size and depth in the post made it nearly impossible for TCU to score. Diallo finished with five blocks in just 21 minutes. “They’re long. They’re really long,” Williams said. “So sometimes they’re not doing what they need to be doing offensively, and they struggle, but that length is really tough defensively.” On the flip side, “I think my wife could score on us in the post,” TCU coach Trent Johnson said. Malique Trent missed the Horned Frogs’ second straight game because of a violation of team rules. The transfer from New Mexico Junior College was tied for the team lead at 11.7 points per game. His loss has been sorely felt for a team short on depth. The Horned Frogs were able to hang around with the Jayhawks for the first half, but their weary legs got the best of them late. In fact, TCU built a 19-15 lead fueled almost entirely by 3-pointers before Kansas answered with a 16-2 run. But even after the Jayhawks took a 31-21 lead with about 4 minutes left before the break, the Horned Frogs were able to keep the game within striking distance. It was still a 10-point game midway through the second half when the Jayhawks peeled off six quick points, first on a dunk by Ellis and then

And while TCU never truly went away, Kansas had enough depth and athleticism to prevent one more comeback. Not to mention give Self another opportunity to tinker. The Jayhawks’ coach is still experimenting with lineups, trying to find the best five guys – and the top guys off the bench – approaching the midpoint of the season. Bragg and Diallo made their case for more minutes, while Jamari Traylor and Landen Lucas seemed to backpedal a bit. Bragg soared past his career-best of nine points while providing some

energy on the defensive end and the glass, while Diallo provided a jolt with a series of crowd-thrilling rejections. “They look the part. They play the part. And they’re playing with the right guy,” Johnson said. “They’re going to be good players. Great players, probably. I hope they leave after this year.” False alarms Fire alarms sounded in Allen Fieldhouse with just over a minute left in the game. True to form at Kansas, the 16,300 seats were never empty – despite a bleating horn and flashing lights. The officials decided to play through it and finish

up the game. Tip-ins TCU: Chris Washburn started for the third time after missing the early portion of the season with a broken finger. He finished with eight points. ... TCU was 7 of 17 from beyond the arc. Kansas: Ellis had nine rebounds. ... Kansas was 5 of 20 from beyond the arc. ... The Jayhawks had just 10 turnovers after piling up 22 in their loss to the Mountaineers. Up next TCU plays Texas Tech on Monday night. Kansas visits Oklahoma State on Tuesday night.

Niang, Morris lead Iowa State past Wildcats BY TATE STEINLAGE Associated Press

MANHATTAN – Iowa State’s Georges Niang and Monte Morris both felt the ball hadn’t bounced their way in consecutive Big 12 losses. They didn’t leave anything to chance on Saturday. Morris scored 15 of his 19 points in the second half, Niang continued his form at Bramlage Coliseum with 15 points, and No. 17 Iowa State kept Kansas State at arm’s length in a 76-63 victory. “We stayed together,” Morris said. “When they made runs, we always huddled up and kept our composure. I think when we are like this, I do not think anybody can beat us. When we focus, I feel like we play well and respond well to adversity.” The win snapped a two-game skid for the Cyclones (13-4, 2-3 Big 12) after dropping nail- biters to Texas and No. 22 Baylor, and prevented Iowa State’s first 1-4 league start since 2010-11. Niang entered Saturday’s game averaging 14.7 points in seven games against the Wildcats at Bramlage Coliseum. Abdel Nader added 14 points and Matt Thomas had 11 for Iowa State, which shot 50.9 percent from the field – meeting its season

KSU 63 NO. 17 ISU 76 average of 50.2. Three players finished with at least six rebounds. First-year Iowa State coach Steve Prohm used a timeout with 9:35 play to spark a 7-0 run after Kansas State cut a double-digit lead to 50-45 on a basket by Justin Edwards. “We had to get a stop,” Wildcats coach Bruce Weber said. “But they made their plays.” Edwards scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds for Kansas State (11-6, 1-4). Three times late, Kansas State pushed back but couldn’t get any closer than 66-59 with 3:12 remaining on a 3-pointer by Kamau Stokes. The Wildcats cooled off after hitting 10 3-pointers against Texas Tech on Tuesday, completing just 4 of 21 attempts from beyond the arc. “I think we let our lack of offensive execution and shot-making affect our defense,” Weber said. “That meant we didn’t have any energy, but you have to let the defense create the energy.” The first half had the makings of a blowout. A 7-minute scoring drought for Kansas State allowed the visitors to take a

The Wildcats were 1 of 15 from the field during the spell and turned the ball over four times. At one point, Kansas State scored three points on 19 possessions. Morris scored with 5:09 remaining in the half to make it 26-9. D.J. Johnson responded for the Wildcats with a tough layup inside that started a 14-6 run to cut the deficit to 32-23 by halftime. “I have learned a lot in my short time in this league, and we just have to continue to get better each day,” Prohm said. “But to come here and win like this in double figures, it shows

that we are not going to let people push us out and say that Iowa State is done this year.” Quotable Barry Brown had averaged 17.3 points per game in Big 12 play for Kansas State, including 15 points against Texas Tech on Tuesday, but the freshman guard was held to four on 1-of-10 shooting Saturday. “Coach (Chester) Frazier asked him, ‘You’ve been in the gym every day during break. You have a big game against Texas Tech, were you in the gym on Wednesday?’ I think the answer is pretty obvious. If

you want to be a good player, you have to be in the gym.” Tip-ins Iowa State: Backup guard Hallice Cooke did not make the trip due to a suspension that is a non-legal issue. . The Cyclones snapped a three-game losing streak in Manhattan, Kansas. Kansas State: Wildcats starting bigs Dean Wade and Stephen Hurt combined for just eight points on 4-of-15 shooting. Up next Iowa State: hosts No. 2 Oklahoma on Monday. Kansas State: is at No. 22 Baylor on Wednesday.

Former Colts coach, broadcaster Ted Marchibroda dies at age 84 BY MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer

INDIANAPOLIS – Former NFL coach Ted Marchibroda charmed players with his soft-spoken personality and his innovative concepts. Fans appreciated his down-to-earth descriptions and his ability to win games. On Saturday, the NFL lost one of its great innovators. After confirming the death with his family, the Indianapolis Colts announced that Marchibroda died at age 84. He coached the Colts twice – for five years in Baltimore and four years in Indianapolis – and is the only man to have coached both Baltimore franchises, the Colts and Ravens. He was probably one of the few who could have been accepted by both communities after the Colts’ move from Baltimore, too. “Ted was as humble as they come, and he represented the Colts and

Marchibroda has died at age 84. our community with class both off the field and on,” Indianapolis owner Jim Irsay said in a statement. “He was beloved by many, and will be sorely missed.” Marchibroda was a masterful coach. He accepted the Baltimore Colts’ job in 1975 and

immediately led them to three consecutive AFC East titles. He lost that job after the 1979 season, but his career was still taking off. Marchibroda bounced around the NFL for nearly a decade as an assistant with the Chicago Bears, the Detroit Lions and

Philadelphia Eagles. In 1987, he was hired by Marv Levy in Buffalo, which is where Marchibroda introduced the groundbreaking K-Gun offense. The Bills used that version of the no-huddle offense to win four straight AFC championships – and the principles are still used in today’s more modern offenses. In 1992, the Colts, now in Indy, gave Marchibroda a second chance and he again had instant success. The Colts went 9-7 in his first season, after going 1-15 in 1991, and in 1995, Marchibroda nearly pulled off a seemingly impossible run through the playoffs by leading the Colts to wins at San Diego and Kansas City before losing at Pittsburgh after Jim Harbaugh’s Hail Mary pass fell incomplete on the game’s final play. Marchibroda went 71-58 in nine seasons with the Colts and 2-4 in the playoffs. He was the first head coach

inducted into Indy’s Ring of Honor. “Ted Marchibroda, a Life-Changer, a Winner & a Champion all the way. Forever Proud to be ur QB,” Harbaugh posted on his Twitter feed. In 1996, Marchibroda returned to Baltimore, this time to lead the Ravens, becoming their first head coach. There, he was not as successful, going 14-31-1 in three seasons, but he was just as appreciated by those in the locker room and around the organization. “Ted is a founding father of the Ravens. He was a tremendous competitor and a tough man with a gentle soul,” general manager Ozzie Newsome was quoted as saying on the team’s Twitter feed. He returned to Indianapolis in 1999 and spent the next seven seasons working the Colts’ radio broadcasts, where he became a fan favorite.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Royals and pitcher Ian Kennedy agreed to a $70 million, five-year deal Saturday that includes an opt-out after the first two years, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract will not be completed until the 31-year-old right-hander passes a physical. That could happen this week. Kennedy went 9-15 with a 4.28 ERA for the San Diego Padres last season. He is four years Kennedy removed from a 21-win season with the Arizona Diamondbacks and has also pitched for the New York Yankees during his nine-year career. The Royals sought another starter to replace Johnny Cueto, who signed a $130 million, six-year deal with the Giants after helping Kansas City win its first World Series since 1985. Kennedy turned down the Padres’ qualifying offer – a guaranteed $15.8 million salary for next season. That means San Diego will receive a draft pick from Kansas City as compensation. The Royals hope Kennedy can return to form under pitching coach Dave Eiland, who has worked wonders with Edinson Volquez, Yordano Ventura and others over the years. Kennedy and Eiland are familiar with each other after their years in the Yankees system. Kennedy should also benefit from pitching in spacious Kauffman Stadium. While his strikeout rate was among the best in the game last season, he also allowed 31 homers in just 168 1-3 innings. Kennedy figures to slide into the middle of the rotation behind Volquez and Ventura and ahead of Kris Medlen and Chris Young. The Royals also have Danny Duffy and Dillon Gee, among several others, who stand to compete for the fifth spot throughout spring training. Heralded prospect Kyle Zimmer could also be in the mix later in the season. Long considered frugal, the Royals have spent lavishly the past couple of years, a signal that the small-market club views the next two years as a prime opportunity to win another championship. Already this offseason, the Royals brought back All-Star outfielder Alex Gordon on a $72 million, four-year contract. They signed former closer Joakim Soria to a $25 million, three-year deal, avoided the next two years of arbitration with All-Star outfielder Lorenzo Cain by agreeing to a two-year, $17.5 million deal and brought back Young on an $11.5 million, two-year deal. Throw in an $8 million option on All-Star closer Wade Davis and a $5.25 million option on All-Star shortstop Alcides Escobar, along with significant raises for their arbitration-eligible players, and the Kansas City payroll could reach a franchise-record $140 million next season. “We’re going to continue to work our roster, massage it in ways that are going to help us win,” general manager Dayton Moore said recently. “If you look at the evolution of the 2015 roster, we made adjustments along the way, and I’m confident we’re going to be able to do that.”

New trap helps fight against feral hogs An inverse bucket list BY MICHAEL PEARCE Tribune News Service

HOISINGTON – Kansas’ war on feral swine is being fought largely on a 40-mile front along the Oklahoma state line. But Curran Salter is winning battles from his Hoisington home about four hours away, often in the middle of the night with the simple push of a button. That’s all it takes to drop a new style of trap that’s greatly improved his efficiency. A pile of corn was placed near a trail camera by Salter. If a herd of feral pigs starts using the bait site, he’ll put a remote-controlled drop trap at the sight. “The main thing is that this lets us decide when we want to drop the trap,” Salter said about a 22-foot across drop trap. “When they’re here, we get a video so we know exactly what is under the trap. We’ll know if it’s just one animal, or maybe a deer or a raccoon, or the entire (herd of pigs). The whole process of getting these traps set up, and the pigs in them, is so much faster, too.” America’s wild pigs are descendants of domestic pigs gone wild. Feral pigs are found in more than 40 states, from Florida to California, and three Canadian provinces. Their range has more than doubled in the past 30 years. Some estimates put the U.S. population at more than 6 million. That’s a jump of 2 million from five years ago. Feral sows often have two litters per year, each

with six to 10 piglets, The Wichita Eagle reported. Kansas is one of the few states to keep the feral swine population at bay. Salter, a U.S. Department of Agriculture wildlife biologist, said Kansas has been fighting feral pigs since 2006, when a population appeared on Fort Riley. It’s thought most Kansas populations were pigs that had been trapped farther south, then released in Kansas by hunters wanting to create a local population. That practice is now illegal. Over the past decade, Salter and other biologists have killed 6,000 feral pigs within about 20 Kansas counties, or in bordering parts of neighboring states. Localized populations have been eradicated. Salter estimates the Kansas population is fewer than 1,000 animals. One of Kansas’ two main pig problem areas is in Bourbon County, where several landowners want a huntable population and forbid federal eradication. The other area is between Montgomery and Cowley counties, along the Oklahoma line, where the pigs are expanding northward from Oklahoma, a state with an estimated population of more than 600,000 wild pigs. Trapping has been a vital tool for controlling Kansas’ populations since 2006. Never has it been more efficient. Initial traps involved using piles of corn for bait. When trail cameras showed a sizable herd in the area, biologists began

a slow process of getting the pigs acclimated to a trap of welded wire panels attached to posts in the ground, gradually building it around the corn, adding a new piece every several days. “It used to take three or four weeks, or even months for the pigs to accept things, and get used to an enclosure on the ground,” said Salter. “We had to go in every few days and get things gradually constructed, keep baiting it.” Early traps relied on trip wires to lower a gate at one end of the trap. A gluttonous single pig might trip the trap before others were within. Worse, would be if a non-target animal dropped the gate before a herd of swine arrived. “If they walk up, and see that animal, a deer or a raccoon trapped, you about have to start over,” said Salter. “Pigs are too smart to come back to that trap.” A few years ago, biologists started using similar traps that had a door that could be dropped remotely, thanks to a camera that sent images to biologists via cell phone signal. His best single night catch in one trap was 42 pigs. Now, with a similar trigger system, paired with the new style of drop trap that sits 44 inches above the ground, the waiting game can be greatly reduced. Last week, he made the rounds checking trail cameras and bait piles south of Cedar Vale. His last stop was where a drop trap sat in a sprawling field of harvested milo. The trap stuck

out like a battleship on a sea of flattened stalks. “That’s one of the benefits to these is that we can set them about anywhere and they don’t seem to notice them,” Salter said. “I think it’s because when they walk up they can see completely underneath these things so they feel secure. Sometimes you can catch the entire (herd) the night after you set it up. These save us so much time.” Speaking of time, this is the time of year Salter and the two other USDA wildlife biologists in Kansas are working their longest hours. With the end of deer seasons they have access to most properties for baiting and trapping. (Salter said almost all landowners asked have allowed his crews to eradicate feral pigs on their lands.) They also have an annual program of shooting feral pigs from a helicopter, which usually makes up about 60 percent of the annual kill in Kansas. Some days, crews have killed more than 100 feral pigs and totally eradicated isolated populations. Carcasses are disposed of as per the landowner’s request. Even with such weapons, and a well-funded feral swine control program within the current farm bill, Salter sees no end to the fight to keep Kansas as wild pig-free as possible. “We can keep them beat back, but they’re always going to keep coming,” he said. “We’re in this for the long haul.”

“We can keep them beat back, but they’re always going to keep coming. We’re in this for the long haul.” Curran Salter, U.S. Department of Agriculture wildlife biologist

Yellowstone bison slaughters to continue for now BY MATTHEW BROWN Associated Press

BILLINGS, Mont. – Large numbers of migrating Yellowstone National Park bison are likely to face slaughter for at least the next couple of winters as officials weigh changes to a 15-year-old agreement that drives the practice, the park’s superintendent said. Most of the bison removed from America’s first national park are captured and sent to slaughter over concerns they may transmit the disease brucellosis to Montana

livestock. Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk said he’s hopeful the slaughters eventually will be phased out and replaced by hunting. However, that’s not feasible in the short term with a near-record population of about 4,900 park bison, Wenk told The Associated Press. The park has agreed to reduce bison numbers as a way to minimize conflicts with landowners in Montana. It plans to cull 600 to 900 of the animals this winter using a combination of hunting and

shipments to slaughter. “Under current population numbers, we will have to capture and ship bison to slaughter,” Wenk said. “That’s just the world we’re living in today. It might not be the world we’re living in three years from now.” No bison-to-cattle transmissions of brucellosis have been recorded in the wild, which Wenk said was one gauge of success for a 2000 bison management agreement between federal agencies and Montana officials. Brucellosis was introduced into Yellowstone’s

bison herds by domestic livestock brought into the region by early settlers. An overhaul of the 2000 agreement that began last year is expected to be completed by late 2017. Yellowstone’s bison herds numbered just a few dozen animals in the early 1900s. They recovered dramatically over the past century, and today the park has some of the only genetically pure bison left in the world. Yet that conservation success in recent years has become overshadowed by the slaughters used to control bison numbers.

Exploring Kansas Outdoors

Steve Gilliland At church one Sunday, one of the greeters whose daughter is getting married soon was telling me about the recent excursion to buy his suit for the wedding. When asked why he was not wearing a tux for the occasion, he replied “I think it’s on my bucket list that I will never wear a tuxedo for anything.” That got me to thinking; there are numerous things that I too will never do, so why not come up with “an inverse bucket list” of things in the outdoors that I simply never want to do. Bear in mind, the items on this list reflect only my opinion, are listed in no particular order and are possibly subject to change given the circumstances. I will never milk a skunk! Pure skunk essence is in high demand by trapping lure manufacturers and is also used as a carrier in perfume to hold the scent and help it last longer. Lots of trappers extract the essence from skunks they catch by inserting a small hypodermic needle into the scent glands and carefully sucking out the essence, then depositing it into some sort of sealed glass container. I thoroughly admire trappers who do this as they are going the extra mile to harvest and use all parts of those amazing critters, but I’ll probably never do it myself. I will probably never skin a skunk that I catch either. I will never keep a carp for table fare. Big, strong and built like aquatic tanks with scales, carp are possibly second only to wipers as the hardest fighting fish found in Kansas waters, and avid carp fisherman would probably argue with that. I found the International Carp Fishing Association, the American Carp Fishing Association and various other state organizations, all dedicated to the sport of catchand-release carp tournament fishing. The guys and gals of these clubs are as infatuated with carp fishing as any bass or walleye tournament fishermen. Once again, I thoroughly respect these folks for their appreciation for a creature that’s often known as a trash fish and has over the years been the brunt of more jokes and ridicule than President Obama. However, given the number of other fine-eating fish found in Kansas, I’ll probably never keep one. I will never eat possum or grubs. I have tasted numerous kinds of wild game meat, including

bear, beaver, raccoon and bobcat, and most taste amazingly good, though bear and raccoon are slightly greasy. I guess possum is also edible and in fact is considered classy cuisine in some parts of the country. In response to the suggestion of eating possum, I once heard someone say “No I will never eat possum; I’ve seen too many of them crawl out of a rotting carcass of some sort.” My sentiments exactly; possums are four legged vultures and to me eating one would be no different than eating a vulture. So no, I will never eat possum! ... Likewise with grubs; I watch the survival shows and see the guys fishing big fat grubs out of trees and rotten logs, hear them tell how tasty and crunchy they are roasted over an open fire, and listen to them rave about all the protein and nutrients they provide a hungry person. Sorry, but I think I’d rather chew off my left foot! If God had wanted me to eat grubs He would have created me as a stork or a skunk. I will never spend another winter night in a tiny camping trailer. When I was just a kid, probably in my early 20s, I accepted an older co-worker’s invitation to go deer hunting with him in Pennsylvania. We were staying in his tiny camping trailer in some deserted state park or something, and early the first morning we stepped out into 10 or so inches of fresh snow and absolutely miserable freezing temperatures. We walked up and down hills and through pine trees all day long and were absolutely beat by day’s end as I remember. We decided to go to a little tavern out in the middle of nowhere to get a hot evening meal, and my friend had a beer or two with his meal. On the counter, as in many old country taverns back then, was a glass gallon jar of pickled hard boiled eggs, and my friend started eating those eggs along with his beer and dinner. Back then I had no idea what a potent combination beer and pickled boiled eggs could be. That night I would rather have slept out in the snow than in that tiny trailer with him. These are just a few of the things on my “inverse bucket list” and I hope they gave you a chuckle or two. But as I think about it, who knows, in our world today maybe it’s just as important for us to know what we will not do as it is to know what we will. Steve Gilliland can be contacted by email at

I’m confused, Thrifty! The newspaper ad said that my favorite treats were on sale for $2.99. But when I got up to the checkout counter, it cost $3.19! How can that be? Is it some kind of a trick?

Wow! Sales tax takes a bite out of my snacks before I do!

No, it’s not a mistake, Fritter. You forgot about SALES TAX. Sales tax is added to the price of many things you buy in stores, so you have to always keep that in mind when figuring out if you can afford to buy something!

Many things you buy at a store are taxed. That means you pay a little more than the price tag shows to pay the sales tax. Cities, states and the federal government use tax dollars to pay for a variety of services and government functions. Unscramble the letters to discover some of the things taxpayer dollars buy.

Are you an eagle-eyed reader? Read the story below and circle the ten errors you find. Then rewrite the story correctly.

Taxing Solution Approximately 300 years ago, Russian ruler peter the Great made sweping changes designed to modurnize and transform Russia and make it a more powerfull country. This was to bee an expensive task and the solution he found was to taxe the Russian people. He found some unnusual items too tax. Among the goods he taxed were hats, boots chimneys, stamps, basements and beehives. He taxed things like mustashes and beards. He even taxed birth, marriage and burial.

Talk with a parent about sales tax. Ask them how they estimate the cost of something when they’re deciding to make a purchase. Ask them what other kinds of taxes they pay.

Everyone who earns money by ____________ pays a percentage of his or her earnings to the government in what is called an income tax. Most of this tax is taken out of a person’s ______________ a little at a time throughout the ________. But, once a year, people have to list both the money they have ___________ and their expenses to see if they paid the right __________ of taxes. Income taxes for 2015 are due by April 15, 2016. If, when preparing your taxes, you find out you have not _______ enough taxes, you need to pay the government what you ______ for the previous year. If you discover that you have paid too ________ in taxes, the government will send you a refund.

First unscramble the words that describe the services which are supported by sales tax. Next look through the newspaper for five or more examples of things sales tax helps provide your community. Standards Link: Research: Use the newspaper to locate information.

... saving some of your money for the future. How many ways can you make a dollar with these coins? Complete the chart to show the number of coins you will need for each group.

2 3 4 5 6

Is their sales tax in your community? Select five items in today’s paper that you would like to buy. Find out the price and then multiply the price by the sales tax percentage. What is the total price to buy these items? Standards Link: Math: Compute sums.


This week’s word:




The noun refund means a sum of money given back or repaid.


ANSWER: So it doesn’t slip through your fingers.



The store gave me a refund when I returned the sweater that didn’t fit. Try to use the word refund in a sentence today when talking with your friends and family members.

How could you turn one dollar into ten dollars or more?
