PRATT – Pratt Well Service Inc., 70 years old and calling itself the oldest family-run well servicing business in the U.S., filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wichita. The oil and gas servicing company will close its service business, laying off most of its employees. The bankruptcy filing listed non-individual assets of $7,475,673, and liabilities of $4,943,794. The estimated number of creditors ranges from 100 to 199. Major creditors include the Internal Revenue Service and the Kansas Department of Revenue, with a combined tax payment due of over $230,000. “After the sale of equipment used in the servicing business, the company will seek reorganization around its oil and gas production assets,” the one-paragraph

NEWS IN A HURRY WORLD Bangladesh commandoes storm restaurant in rescue DHAKA, Bangladesh – Bangladesh forces stormed a restaurant where heavily armed militants held dozens of people hostage for 10 hours this morning, triggering explosions and finding at least five bodies lying in pools of blood. Japan’s government said that 12 people were rescued. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack on the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka’s Gulshan area, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadis activity online. At least 35 people, including about 20 foreigners, were trapped inside the restaurant, said kitchen staffer Sumon Reza, who was among more than 10 people who managed to run to the rooftop and escape when the militants moved in Friday night. Local media reported that an Argentine and two Bangladeshis were rescued from the restaurant, but details about their condition were not immediately available. The attack marks an escalation in the growing drumbeat of militant violence to hit the traditionally moderate Muslimmajority nation in the past three years, but with increasing frequency in recent months. Most attacks have been by machete-wielding men singling out individual activists, foreigners and religious minorities.

AG wishes she hadn’t met with Bill Clinton WASHINGTON – Attorney General Loretta Lynch is expressing regret that she sat down with Bill Clinton while his wife is under federal criminal investigation, a chance encounter she acknowledges “cast a shadow” on the public’s perception of a case bound to influence the presidential campaign. “I certainly wouldn’t do it again,” Lynch said of the meeting. For Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee, the episode raised the risk that voters will see her anew as half of a power couple that makes its own rules. Lynch hastened to add that she intended to follow the recommendations of career prosecutors on whether to file criminal charges at the close of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, indicating that she would accept whatever decision is presented to her. The attorney general’s remarks at a conference in Colorado were aimed at tamping down concerns that the investigation could be politically tainted or that Lynch, an Obama administration appointee, might overrule the findings of agents and prosecutors who have spent months looking into the possible mishandling of classified information on the private email server Clinton used as secretary of state.

Officials in Istanbul bombing eye Chechen extremist ISTANBUL – Attention focused Friday on whether a Chechen extremist known to be a top lieutenant in the Islamic State group was involved in the suicide attacks that killed 44 people at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport. U.S. Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, told CNN that Akhmed Chatayev directed Tuesday night’s attack at one of the world’s busiest airports. The CIA and White House declined to comment on McCaul’s assertion and officials said the investigation of the bombing is still ongoing. McCaul could not be reached for further comment. Turkish officials also were not able to confirm Chatayev’s role. The Sabah newspaper, which is close to the government, said police had launched a manhunt for him.

US says up to 116 civilians killed in counterterror strikes WASHINGTON – Peeling back some of the secrecy of America’s drone strikes on suspected terrorists, the Obama administration on Friday said it has killed up to 116 civilians in counterterror attacks in Pakistan, Yemen and other places where the U.S. is not engaged in active, on-the-ground warfare. The first-ever public assessment is a response to mounting pressure for more information about lethal U.S. operations overseas. Human rights and other groups quickly complained that the administration undercounted civilian casualties and called on the White House to release far more information. The report by National Intelligence Director James Clapper said the U.S. conducted 473 counterterror strikes, between January 2009 and December 2015. He did not mention where the strikes occurred, but the Defense Department and CIA have pursued targets in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya. The data didn’t include strikes in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, which the U.S. considers areas of active hostilities.

LGBT rights groups win as judge blocks Mississippi law JACKSON, Miss. – Supporters of the LGBT rights movement won the latest round against conservatives when a federal judge ruled that a Mississippi “religious objections” law is unconstitutional, just moments before it was to take effect Friday. The decision could influence federal judges considering challenges to other state laws and will be held up by gayrights advocates as another reason for legislatures to back off considering similar bills. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant vowed to appeal.

Gov OKs $33M to plug revenue hole BY TIM CARPENTER The Topeka Capital-Journal

TOPEKA – Gov. Sam Brownback approved a series of emergency budget adjustments in response to a $33.5 million revenue shortfall in the final month of the fiscal year, officials said Friday. The state is prohibited by law from beginning a new fiscal year with a negative balance, requiring Brownback to flex executive power to create a positive number as the 12-month budget year ended Thursday night. The Brownback administration disclosed a decision to pull $23.6 million from the state transportation and corrections departments and a fund dedicated to early-childhood education programs. The executive branch delayed an extra $75 million in state aid to public school districts that was due in June. An unusually large overdue payment of $260 million will be made in July, during the new fiscal year, but school districts will record

the transaction as if paid as scheduled in June. Typically, this accounting trick allows the state to temporarily bolster the bottom line by withholding about $200 million at the end of each fiscal year. A news release from the Kansas Department of Revenue on the June revenue shortage mentioned stop-gap budget corrections but didn’t disclose what the anticipated ending balance was at the start of the new fiscal year. Neither the revenue department secretary, the state budget director nor the governor issued statements detailing budget changes. House Minority Leader Tom Burroughs, a Democrat from Kansas City, Kan., said policies of the Brownback administration had essentially bankrupted the state government. “Month after month, year after year, the Kansas budget has hemorrhaged cash as a direct result of the Brownback experiment,” Burroughs said. “Gov. Brownback has blown through the state’s savings, put our monthly bills on

the credit card, taken out payday loans to make ends meet and is now holding our children’s education hostage.” The state income tax exemption given owners of 330,000 business and the individual income tax rate reductions signed by Brownback in 2012 continue to strip the government of essential funding, said Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka. “It’s further evidence of their mismanagement of the state’s budget,” Hensley said. “The problem won’t go away until they come to grips with reality: It’s the tax cuts that are causing these budget shortfalls.” The latest round of adjustments became necessary because the state’s budget had been built on revenue projections that were too optimistic. Despite lowering official revenue expectations in April, the state didn’t meet monthly targets in May or June. Previously, state budget officials recommended Brownback sweep $16 million from the Kansas Department of

Transportation, $3 million from the Kansas Department of Corrections, and cash originally earmarked for the Children’s Initiatives Fund. The new CIF withdrawal followed two sweeps during the 2016 legislative session of $11 million, triggered by weakness in state tax collections throughout the fiscal year. “Nearly half of the $60 million originally intended for children’s programs in 2016 is instead now paying for the state’s perpetual budget crisis,” said Annie McKay, president and CEO of Kansas Action for Children. Eileen Hawley, spokeswoman for Brownback, said the latest budget revision didn’t make use of a recommendation from Shawn Sullivan, the governor’s budget director, to transfer up to $45 million from a Medicaid fee fund to the state’s general operating budget. Hawley said a report by the National Association of State Budget Officers indicated Kansas and two dozen other states had budget shortfalls during the last fiscal year.

Some schools could see swings in taxes BY JOHN HANNA AP Political Writer

TOPEKA,- A handful of small, rural Kansas school districts face spikes in local property taxes or cuts spending because they’re losing state aid under a new education funding law. But a few other rural districts could see tax levies decrease significantly, and dozens of districts of all sizes will see modest decreases because of additional state aid for the 2016-17 school year. The new law that took effect Friday is meant to ensure educational offerings across the state don’t vary too widely by smoothing out the taxes imposed by local districts. A look at the new law, its origins and its consequences: COURT MANDATE Legislators approved the law during a two-day special session last month in response to a state Supreme Court ruling in May that the school funding system remained unfair to poor districts. The court warned public schools might not reopen after June if changes weren’t made. The justices ruled in a

lawsuit filed in 2010 by the Dodge City, Hutchinson, Wichita and Kansas City, Kansas, school districts. All four will see an increase in aid and expect modest property tax decreases. The court has declared that the Kansas Constitution requires lawmakers to finance a suitable education for every child, whether they live in rich or poor areas. Part of their duty, according to the justices, is making sure that tax rates aren’t far higher in poor areas than in wealthy ones. BIGGEST TAX SPIKES Calculations based on data from the state Department of Education show that five districts in southeast Kansas that have fewer than 900 students face the largest property tax increases. “We don’t want to make cuts that are going to hurt kids,” said Superintendent Kay Lewis of the Humboldt district in Allen County in southeast Kansas, which has fewer than 900 students and faces a 10 percent increase in property taxes. A new oil pipeline is running through the districts, which boosted their property values – making them richer and less worthy of state aid in the eyes of the

education funding system. In Allen County, Marmaton Valley’s total tax levies could rise 30 percent if it tries to make up for all of the aid it will lose. The Jayhawk district in neighboring Linn County salted away funds, deferring some expenses, to avoid a similar swing, board president Laura Umphenour said. “It’s sort of extraordinary circumstances outside of the court case that just happened to coincide,” she said. THE FUNDING FIX Poor districts’ aid increases by $38 million for 2016-17, while redistributing some aid from wealthy districts and diverting funds from other corners of state government to avoid increasing overall state spending amid ongoing budget problems. The amount was less than 1 percent of the more than $4 billion a year Kansas already was spending on aid to its 286 school districts. The fix isn’t focused on giving more dollars to classrooms. “Revenue’s not going to change,” said Bill Lowry, superintendent of the 740-student Hoisington district in Barton County in central Kansas, which could see its tax levies drop

15 percent. “Until you figure out how you’re going to pay for things, it doesn’t really matter what your formulas are.” LOCAL FOCUS Under state law, districts can supplement state dollars by imposing local property taxes for “local option budgets,” but extra spending is capped. To promote fairness for poor districts, the system subsidizes their “LOBs” to hold down local taxes. The new law increases LOB subsidies for 144 districts, according to the State Department of Education, with taxes dropping by an average of about $33 a year on a $130,000 home, which is close to the median value in Kansas. Another 97 districts see subsidies decrease or disappear. They potentially could increase property taxes by an average of $28 a year for a $130,000 home. But districts losing state aid aren’t required to increase property taxes and may not want to increase the burden on residents, choosing instead to tap reserves or cut spending. Forty-five districts will see no change in their aid, according to the department.

Six now dead from crash near Goodland BY THE SALINA JOURNAL

GOODLAND – Six out of 11 people who were riding in a sport utility vehicle that was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer early Wednesday are now deceased, a Kansas Highway Patrol spokesman said Friday. Trooper Tod Hileman said that three additional people are unresponsive in a Denver hospital. Driver Calvin Florez, 42, of Guatemala, was in fair condition Friday at Via Christi Hospital on St. Francis in Wichita. Hileman said he did not know the whereabouts or condition of the one remaining passenger. Hileman said Toyota

Sequoia vehicles, such as the 11 people were riding in, are built to hold seven or eight passengers. “There were more people in the vehicle than there were seat belts,” he said. He said some of the people in the SUV have been identified, and they all seemed to be from several different countries in Central America. Hileman said the wreck remains under investigation by the KHP and is also under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. He said he did not know where the group was coming from or going to or whether they were in the country legally. He said efforts were being

made to contact family members through consulates in various countries. According to a KHP report, the SUV driven by Florez and a semi driven by Yuriy P. Mudrenko, 27, of Antelope, Calif., were both headed east on Interstate Highway 70 about 11 miles east of Goodland at 2:15 a.m. Hileman said there were storms in the area at the time, but he did not know if weather was a factor in the crash. The semi struck the rear of the SUV, causing it to veer into the ditch, where it overturned and landed on its top, according to the KHP report. Five people were initially killed in the crash and a sixth has since died.

Man suing Reno jail over attack BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News

A former Hutchinson man attacked while in the Reno County jail last September has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the jail, the sheriff and the jail supervisor. The suit, filed by Darrell Eugene Beachy, who now resides in the Saline County jail, seeks $500,000, plus fees, for negligence and cruel and unusual punishment. Beachy, 30, was airlifted from the Reno County Correctional Facility to a Wichita hospital the evening of Sept. 27, 2015, for treatment of head injuries. Prosecutors charged brothers William and Antoine Alexander for attacking Beachy in the jail pod they

shared. Beachy was in custody at the time on numerous charges of theft, burglary, forgery and interference with law enforcement, while the Alexander brothers both were there for failing to appear in unrelated felony theft and drug cases. Both men have pleaded guilty in the attack. Antoine Alexander is on probation, while William Alexander is still awaiting sentencing, now set for July 8. “Corrections staff was aware of the Alexanders’ history of solving social conflicts with acts of violence and did nothing to prevent it,” the handwritten filing states. “Capt. McClay (jail supervisor Capt. Shawn McClay) was made aware and chose to ignore the request.” “(Sheriff) Randy

Henderson, Shawn McClay and the Reno County Correctional Facility’s classification standards are inadequate and leaves the risk for physical injury,” Beachy stated in the suit. Injuries from the beating Beachy detailed in the suit include “substantial blood loss, stitches on eyebrow region and blood vessels between eyebrows which will be lifelong scars. Ongoing medical care will be required for a shoulder injury and mental and emotional trauma.” Beachy alleges in the suit that another jail officer advised him after he was released from the hospital that “Antoine and William Alexander should never have been placed together because when they are housed together they have a history of violent

behavior. The Reno County Correctional Facility has an unspoken policy to house family members in separate cells according to (another deputy).” Beachy also claims in the suit that William Alexander later told him he advised officers “of his history and he asked to be housed in another housing unit,” but officials denied the request. Besides monetary damages, Beachy asks in the suit that officials “revise their classification procedure to prevent further injury to fellow inmates.” “They should also fix their rapid response time in dealing with situations of serious nature,” the suit concludes. Sheriff Randy Henderson said he had not seen the suit yet, and he had no comment.

‘Bounty hunters’ must register with state BY THE NEWS STAFF

TOPEKA – Bail enforcement agents, commonly known as “bounty hunters,” are now required to be licensed by the attorney general’s office to operate in Kansas under a law enacted by the Legislature earlier this year, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt advised on Friday. Forms are now available

on the attorney general’s website,, under the “Licensing Programs” tab for individuals to begin registering. The new law, enacted as Senate Substitute for House Bill 2056, defines bail enforcement agents as “a person not performing the duties of a law enforcement officer who tracks down, captures and surrenders to the custody of a court a

fugitive who has violated a surety or bail bond agreement, commonly referred to as a bounty hunter.” Temporary regulations implementing the new law were approved by the State Rules and Regulations Board earlier this week. Permanent regulations have also been proposed, and a public comment period on those regulations is now open.

The regulations and a comment form are also available on the attorney general’s website. The website also contains frequently asked questions about the new law. Violating the new law carries potential criminal and civil penalties. Anyone with questions may call the attorney general’s office at (785) 2964240.

Toxic algae noted in two lakes, two reservoirs BY TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

The state has detected high levels of toxic blue-green algae in Lake Afton and three other bodies of water around Kansas, according to a statement from the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. Blue-green algae generally grows in lakes, ponds and slow-moving streams, especially when the water is warm. The algae often looks

like spilled green paint. The four areas under warning are Lake Afton in Sedgwick County, Central Park Lake in Shawnee County, Marion Reservoir in Marion County (but not Marion County Lake) and Milford Reservoir in Dickson and Geary counties. The health department said it strongly discourages wading, skiing and swimming in waters under blue-green algae warnings.

But it said boating and fishing are safe if people and pets avoid contact with the water. “Kansans should be aware that blooms are unpredictable,” the department said in a statement. “They can develop rapidly and may float around the lake, requiring visitors to exercise their best judgment.” Pets that swim in or drink water with an algal bloom, or that eat dried algae along the shore, may become

seriously ill or die. The state says it’s safe to eat fish caught during blue-green algae outbreaks, as long as the fish are rinsed with clean water and only the fillet portion is consumed. People should wash their hands after handling the fish. To report an algal bloom, call (785) 296-1664. To read more about the blue-green algae warning, visit algae-illness/.

Kan. has couple of quakes; Okla. temblors shift west BY JOHN GREEN The Hutchinson News

U.S. Geological Survey monitors detected two earthquakes over the past week in Kansas, including a magnitude 3.4 quake in northwest Harper County, centered between Spivey and Attica. The most activity, however, remained in Oklahoma, though shifting further west into Woodward County. Five quakes, including a magnitude 3.7, occurred in loose clusters about midway between the towns of Mooreland and Waynoka. Altogether, there were a dozen earthquakes in the


region between June 23 and the morning of June 30. Other counties recording them were Woods, Major, Garfield and Grant counties in Oklahoma. That June 26 afternoon quake in Harper County drew just one “I felt it” response on the USGS website – from a resident in Anthony. The other Kansas temblor was a magnitude 2.6, centered about five miles south of Cheney on the evening of June 26.

BRIEFS Man who was eluding police dies in Newton WICHITA – A man has died from a medical condition in east Newton while avoiding arrest by police. The Newton Police Department says officers stopped a vehicle in an alley around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. A man and a woman fled the scene. The Wichita Eagle reported that one officer stayed with other occupants inside the vehicle while another officer pursued the woman. She was eventually taken into custody. The man went to an acquaintance’s home. A resident called 911 after noticing he was in medical distress, but he died at the residence.

Hutch resident convicted on child sex abuse counts LYONS – A Rice County jury on Thursday convicted a Hutchinson man on seven child sex abuse counts that fall under Jessica’s Law, according to a release for the Kansas Attorney General’s Office. The jury found Jeffrey Dean Crenshaw, 43, guilty on five counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, one count of attempted

aggravated criminal sodomy and one count of criminal sodomy of a person under 14 years of age, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said. The charges fall under Jessica’s Law – each carrying a potential life sentence – because the victim was under 14 years of age. Judge Steven Johnson presided over the trial. A sentencing date has not yet been set. The crimes were committed between February 2010 and February 2012. The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Lyons Police Department. Assistant Attorney General Adam Zentner of Schmidt’s office prosecuted the case.

Teens at center of unequal pay dispute find new jobs KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Two Kansas teens have new jobs after their firing from a pizza restaurant touched off a heated discussion about persistent pay inequality in the American workplace. The Kansas City Star reported that issues arose earlier this month within hours of Jensen Walcott and Jake Reed finding summer jobs at a Pizza Studio

restaurant in Kansas City, Kansas. When Jensen asked why she was going to earn $8 an hour while Reed was set to earn $8.25, a female manager fired both 17-year-olds. The friends from suburban Bonner Springs were told it was against company policy to discuss wages. The California-based pizza chain since has said the manager has been let go and was wrong about the policy. The National Labor Relations Act allows employees to discuss compensation.

79-year-old man killed in lawnmower accident WICHITA – A 79-year-old Kansas man is dead after his riding lawnmower rolled into a creek near his Wichita home and trapped him underneath. The Wichita Eagle reports police responded to the 911 call around 3 p.m. Thursday after the man’s wife found him. Police spokeswoman Nikki Woodrow says he was pronounced dead at the scene. It wasn’t clear how long the man had been trapped. It was the second fatal Wichita lawnmower mishap in as many days. On Wednesday, a 63-year

man who owns a lawn care business was trapped under a mower he was repairing at his home. The motor was still running when he was found. He also was pronounced dead at the scene. – From staff, wire reports

Roomies should set a budget before shopping Dear Annie

Dear Annie: My girlfriend and I have another roommate in a two-bedroom place. I usually go to Costco for the household necessities, such as toilet paper and paper towels, because it’s cheaper. The three of us split the cost evenly to make the math easy. This time around, our roommate decided to go to a fancy-schmancy supermarket and pay exorbitant prices for organic versions of the same household items we previously bought at Costco. He even bought two-ply toilet paper that came from a recycled rainforest or something instead of our usual off-brand single-ply. We had no idea he was going to blow the bank on non-GMO, eco-friendly coffee filters, but when he came home, he gave us the receipt and asked us to split it with him. The total cost was three times what we

Annie Lane usually spend. I feel awkward. He should have told me he was going. I would have suggested Costco. I don’t want to split it three ways, because I don’t think it’s fair. On the other hand, I don’t want to just stick him with the bill. – Frugal Roommate Dear Frugal: You need to take an economy-sized chill pill. If you feel as if you are acting like a jerk about it, then you probably are acting like a jerk. Your roommate was just trying to be helpful. Pay your third of the expenses – with no griping. Then discuss setting a budget for household items. Instead of being forced to go to Costco,

he’s free to shop wherever he wants, as long as he doesn’t exceed the budget. Don’t be such a control freak. And that fancy two-ply toilet paper may make you more comfortable when you sit down to discuss this, so remember, little luxuries can go a long way. Dear Annie: My puppy, a beagle/Labrador mix, is 1 year old and does everything puppies do. She’s adorable. She’s a traffic-stopper. My heart melts when I see her. But she also does her business in the house, chews on everything and has seemingly endless amounts energy. She is still in training and will be in training for another year – at least. One of the things we’re working on is getting her to stop jumping up on people. If she starts to jump, I’m supposed to turn around and ignore her until she

stops. I do this at home, and it works well. But whenever I take her for walks, strangers see what a cutie she is and want to pet her. When they approach her and she jumps, they say that typical phrase I’ve come to hate: “Oh, it’s OK. I don’t mind.” I get so frustrated with these people. I find myself snapping back at them, “But I do!” I am having trouble being patient with every single person who does this, because I feel as though every time it happens, it ruins the progress of my puppy’s training. I don’t know what to say to strangers anymore. – Puppy Parent Dear Puppy: It’s time for you to be the alpha dog. You must assert your dominance over your pup’s interactions with strangers. The people who are doing

this have obviously never had to train a dog before, so they’re probably really confused when you snap at them – ostensibly just for petting your dog. Recognize the warning signs and stop the troublesome behavior before it starts: The next time you see an approaching stranger giving your dog that oh-mygosh-let-me-hug-you look, say, “You can pet her, but she’s in training, so please don’t let her jump. If she does, turn your back on her.” You have to be proactive and take control of the situation early – like any good leader of the pack.

Teach kids how to be safe around dogs Strike at Trump casino stirs fears over its future

Tell children: Hands off a dog you’ve never met before. Don’t reach out to pet or play. Don’t scream in delight, wave your arms or lunge toward the animal. Ask before you pet someone’s dog. Don’t interrupt a dog when it’s eating or sleeping. (Ask the child how they’d feel if someone woke them up!) If you don’t know the dog, don’t stare eye-to-eye. It can be considered aggression. Even when visiting someone’s home where you may know the dog, don’t leave young or active children alone with a dog. It takes only a few seconds of “fun” play, such as pulling on the dog’s tail or ears, to go amiss. – Woof, woof, Heloise P.S.: Most pet dogs are friendly, but do remember, they are still dogs. Dear Readers: Bill and Joy S. in San Antonio sent

Hints from Heloise

Heloise a picture of their black-andwhite cat Molly in front of the fireplace, stretched out on her back: Molly has the life! To see Molly, visit www. and click on “Pet of the Week.” – Heloise Dear Heloise: A friend in our car was soaked in perfume, and the odor remained after a week. I am sensitive to fragrance. Every time I sit in the car, I have to wash my clothes! The worst of it is on the seat belt. What can I do to get rid of the fragrance? – Mary Anna A., Omaha, Neb. Dear Mary Anna: One person’s favorite fragrance can be another’s headache. Fill a spray bottle with half water and half vinegar (white or apple cider). Place a bath or hand towel behind the seat belt and spray away, being sure to soak both sides. Let sit until dry. The vinegar should neutralize the odor,

and the smell should be gone! I love vinegar’s odor-destroying and cleaning ability. For a a collection of hints, order my vinegar pamphlet: Visit to order online, or send a long, self-addressed, stamped (68 cents) envelope, along with $5, to: Heloise/Vinegar, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. Straight vinegar can remove gummy labels from many surfaces. It kills weeds between cracks in the sidewalk or pavers. Earthfriendly, cheap and safe: What could be better? – Heloise Dear Heloise: I use clean pizza boxes for my grandchildren’s artwork and supplies, crayons, etc. I also use them for place mats, napkins, sewing goods and antique lace. They are nice for scarves, ribbons and headbands. Line it with velvet and put costume jewelry in it. The boxes come in many sizes, and they stack beautifully. – Ruth R. in Buena Park, Calif. Dear Ruth: Call your neighborhood pizza place. If you’re a regular customer, most likely they’ll give you a box or two, or sell you a few! – Heloise



Q Business, under new owner, narrowly escaped closing during bankruptcy. BY WAYNE PARRY Associated Press

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – A strike against Atlantic City’s most vulnerable casino on the biggest moneymaking weekend of the year raised fresh questions about the future of the Trump Taj Mahal. Local 54 of the UniteHERE union went on strike Friday against the casino, which was opened in 1990 by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump but now belongs to a different billionaire, Carl Icahn. Icahn’s management team said the union seems “hell-bent on trying to close this property” and pointed out that he has spent $86 million keeping the Taj Mahal

alive through bankruptcy and $150 million more improving the Tropicana, which he also owns. The Taj Mahal, which remains open and was to host a concert by the hair metal band Whitesnake on Friday night, ranks next to last in Atlantic City in terms of the amount of money it wins from gamblers each month. It narrowly escaped closing during its most recent turn through bankruptcy court. The union called the strike after being unable to agree on a contract that restored health care and pension benefits that a bankruptcy judge terminated in October 2014. It reached new contracts Thursday with four of the five casinos it had targeted: Bally’s, Caesars, Harrah’s and the Tropicana. “All we want is a fair contract,” said Pete Battaglini, a bellman at the Taj Mahal. “We just want what everybody else in the city has. We’re not asking for the moon, just the same.” Battaglini said paying for health insurance on his own through the Affordable Care Act has left him in dire financial straits. “I have two daughters in college that I’m paying for, and having to pay for my own health insurance, it’s draining,” he said. “You have to make choices: Do I pay the bills this month, the health insurance premium or the tuition? It has totally changed my life.” He was one of about 1,000 members who began walking off the job at 6 a.m., joining fellow union members in protest on the Boardwalk.

The Chapter 11 filing gives us the opportunity to maximize payments to creditors and reorganize the company after down-sizing,” said President Kenny Gates, son of the company’s founders, in the release. Pratt Well Service will move as quickly as possible to sell its service business assets, under the protection of the court, the statement said. The company did not say how many employees would be laid off. Pratt Well Service’s employment has varied widely, reflecting the boom-and-bust cycles of the industry. It had about 55 employees during the 1950s and early 1960s, but that number sank to 12 in the late 1960s, according to the company’s online history. In 1986, Pratt Well Service had 88 employees, and a few years ago, approximately 65 employees, according to its history.

Kansas delays June payment to schools THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TOPEKA – Kansas will be paying schools a week late after withholding the final payment of fiscal year 2016 to keep its budget out of the red. The Wichita Eagle reports school districts will receive a total of nearly $260 million in state aid July 7 and mark it as a June 30 payment.

including some Kansas counties, other creditors include businesses in the region that sell pump and well field supplies, chemicals, truck parts and fuel. Husband and wife Carl R. and Alma J. Gates started the company out of their home in Pratt on March 11, 1946, according to the company’s history. After Kenny Gates was discharged from the Army in 1970, he returned to work for Pratt Well Service. In the mid-1970s, the company signed a contract with Northern Natural Gas, Lyons, to work on underground storage wells, the history said, and that was a turning point. Pratt Well Service prided itself on how it controlled its debt and survived the 1980s oil bust. It also considered its employees as crucial to the company’s story, and offered pay and employee benefits greater than that found at competitors. “Having long-term, loyal and experienced people is what has set Pratt Well Service Inc. apart from other well servicing companies,” the company history stated.

• From Page A1 the largest hit, with collections plunging by more than 75 percent for both sources. Kansas collected $50 million less in fiscal year 2016 in oil severance than in fiscal year 2015. On the flip side, after the Legislature increased cigarette taxes, tobacco tax collections shot up by 56 percent, or nearly $50 million. Kansas took in $141 million more in sales tax than the previous year, an increase of 6.6 percent. For the entire fiscal year, several revenue sources – such as the sales tax and tobacco tax – were essentially in line with estimates, with a few large exceptions. Corporate income taxes were 9 percent below estimates for the year. Individual income taxes were down 3 percent for the year. Oil severance fell nearly 18 percent below expectations. For June alone, revenue sources fell mostly below

expectations, resulting in collections coming in $33.5 million below estimate. Among the largest misses were corporate income taxes, which were off by 25 percent, and gas severance taxes, which were 60 percent below projections. The June revenue report followed a $76 million shortfall in May. The June figures continue a nearly uninterrupted pattern over the past year of below-estimated revenue figures. Gov. Sam Brownback’s administration is in the midst of a review of a revenue estimating process after the almost-unbroken streak of misses during the last year. The review eventually will put forward recommendations to improve accuracy. The review appears primarily focused on the estimating process itself, rather than the state’s tax policy, which the governor’s critics say contributes to the repeated over-estimating of expected revenue. The state’s tax policy has harmed the ability to fund the state’s budget, they contend. “Several policies eroded

the well-being of Kansas children since 2011, but none more so than the passage of irresponsible and unsustainable tax policy in 2012,” said Annie McKay, president of Kansas Action for Children. “The saga behind the governor’s trademark initiative has been well-documented. Perhaps the most unfortunate consequence of the fiscal mess it created, however, is the false assumption that Kansas must now choose between its most important investments.” The Legislature went through a wrenching debate over taxes in 2015, arguing over whether to repeal

tax breaks on businesses. Owners of limited-liability companies currently may collect income from their LLC tax-free, and that policy remains in place although lawmakers hiked sales and tobacco taxes. Brownback recently opened the door to re-examining tax policy, however. “Let’s take a good look at it,” the governor told 580 WIBW radio in early June while speaking about business taxes.

Topic needs careful look When researching the return of Christ, I found a copy of a book by William Miller, “Evidence from Scripture and History of the Second Coming of Christ, About the Year 1843; Exhibited in a Course of Lectures.” This book, can be found at www. html. In the introduction, Miller explains his reason for publication. “In presenting these Lectures to the public, the writer is only complying with the solicitations of some of his friends, who have requested that his views on the Prophecies of Daniel and John might be made public. The reader is therefore requested to give the subject a careful and candid perusal, and compare every part with the standard of Divine Truth; for if the explanation the writer has given to the scriptures under consideration should prove correct, the reader will readily perceive that it concerns us all, and becomes doubly important to us, because we live on the eve of one of the most important events ever revealed to man by the wisdom of God – the judgment of the great day.” Miller ends the introduction with this advice to his readers: “And now, my dear readers, I beg of you to lay aside prejudice; examine this subject candidly and carefully for yourselves. Your belief or unbelief will not affect the truth. If it is so, whatever you may think or do will not alter the revealed purposes of God...” The book is a series of lectures giving details of Miller’s search of the Scriptures for evidence of the return of Christ. His prediction was, “some time between March 21, 1843, and March 21, 1844, the Lord would come.” He later extended the date to Oct. 22, 1844. The return of Christ appeared not to occur as he predicted, and his followers were greatly disappointed. Baha’is believe that Miller had the correct date. The Baha’i Faith began with the declaration of a young man, on May 23, 1844, who claimed to be the Promised One. He took the title the Bab, meaning the Gate. He started the Babi religion in Persia, now called Iran. He had a short ministry of six years, as he was executed by a firing squad on July 9, 1850. His teachings aroused the wrath of the Moslem clergy. Many of his followers were martyred. Central to his teachings was his claim to prepare the way for one who was greater. In 1863, Baha’u’llah announced that he was the one foretold by the Bab. Baha’u’llah claims to be the Promised One expected by all major religions. He claims to be the return of Christ. In the years since the declaration of Baha’u’llah, the Baha’i Faith has grown to be the second most widely spread religion in the world – an astounding accomplishment with few parallels in religious history. I have referred to the Christian teachings about the return of Christ because I have been surprised and perplexed by the lack of curiosity of Christians. When Christ came, he was rejected and crucified by the established religion at the time. I believe, as William Miller has said, “we live on the eve of one of the most important events ever revealed to man by the wisdom of God – the judgment of the great day.” And “Your belief or unbelief will not affect the truth.” Phil Wood is a Baha’i.

They stoop to con Buddhist leaders turn to social media to warn unwary that panhandlers are disguised as monks



EW YORK – Buddhist leaders are sounding the alarm to tourists: Beware the “fake

monks.” Men in orange robes claiming to be Buddhist monks are approaching visitors to some of the city’s most popular attractions, handing them shiny medallions and offering greetings of peace. They then hit them up for donations to help them build a temple in Thailand, and are persistent if their demands are refused. “The problem seems to be increasing,” said the Rev. TK Nakagaki, president of the Buddhist Council of New York, a group that represents nearly

two dozen Buddhist temples. “They are very aggressive and hostile if you don’t give them money.” His group has taken to the streets and its Nakagaki Facebook page to warn people that the men appear to have no affiliation to any Buddhist temple. “Please be aware,” read one Facebook post: “This is a scam.” Along the popular High Line elevated park, one of the robed men handed a couple a shiny, gold-colored medallion and a plastic beaded bracelet. He then showed them photos of a planned temple and barked, “Ten dollars! Twenty dollars!” When they wouldn’t give up cash, he snatched the

trinkets back. Other brightly robed men have been spotted pulling the same routine, albeit more successfully, in Times Square, not far from where costumed characters such as Elmo, Minnie Mouse and the Naked Cowboy take pictures with tourists for tips. Some of the monks were later seen handing wads of cash to another man waiting nearby. The Associated Press tried to ask more than a half-dozen of the men about their background and the temple they said the donations were being used to support. Each claimed to be a Buddhist monk collecting money for a temple in Thailand, but none could give its name or say where exactly it is located. All the men

ALQOSH, Iraq – Clutching his rifle intently, the Iraqi recruit maneuvered between piles of bricks and cement obstacles. The sound of shooting pierced the air and he jumped behind a wall, lifted his rifle and imitated the staccato sound of gunfire. It was only a training exercise – the man is among the few dozen Assyrian Christian militiamen conducting military drills in a training camp at the foot of the mountains overlooking the Nineveh plains of northern Iraq. The militia, known as the Nineveh Plain Protection Units, or NPU, is one of three Christian armed groups hoping

for American support after the U.S. House of Representatives called for direct assistance to be delivered to local security forces in the north of Iraq. American assistance “will give equality to all the ethnic groups here,” said Col. Jawat Habib Abboush, the deputy

commander of the group. “This is our country, we had a civilization here for a thousand years and we are still citizens of this country,” he added. “We cannot be marginalized.” Assyrian Christians, many

refused to give their names and ran off when pressed for answers. The men first started appearing at the High Line, a New York City public park that’s maintained by a private nonprofit group, about three years ago, said Robert Hammond, executive director of Friends of the High Line. But it “became excessive” in the past year, he said, with up to a dozen of the men accosting tourists at once and sometimes grabbing them to demand cash. Panhandling on city streets isn’t illegal in New York, as long as the person isn’t acting aggressively. But the city’s parks department has a rule that says it is unlawful to solicit money without a permit from the parks

Israel bans non-Muslims from holy site Q Two clashes at location spur closing until the end of Muslim holy month. BY ARON HELLER Associated Press

JERUSALEM – Israeli police this week banned non-Muslims from a contentious Jerusalem holy site until the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan following two days of clashes with Palestinians at the site. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said rocks and other objects were hurled toward police forces and Jewish worshippers in a nearby plaza. A 73-year-old woman was lightly wounded and police arrested 16 suspects in the disturbances, which have been going on for three days, Rosenfeld said. As a result, police decided to close access to Jewish worshippers and other visitors for the remainder of the week to prevent tensions with Muslim worshippers. Since Sunday, Palestinians had holed up in the Al-Aqsa Mosque atop the mount and attacked officers with fireworks and other objects stockpiled inside. The mosque is part of a compound sacred to both Muslims and Jews. Muslims refer to it as the Noble Sanctuary, where they believe the Prophet Muhammad embarked on a night journey to heaven, while Jews refer to it the Temple Mount. The two biblical Jewish temples stood on the site. Violence had erupted at the site in mid-September before spreading elsewhere. Since then, Palestinians have carried out dozens of attacks, including stabbings, shootings and car ramming

Secretary General Ban Ki-moon during a joint press conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday. assaults, killing 32 Israelis and two visiting Americans. About 200 Palestinians have been killed during that time, most identified by Israel as attackers. The unrest has led to renewed calls for peace talks, which last broke down more than two years ago. Also Tuesday, visiting U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that while he understood Israel’s security concerns, any measures it took would not “solve the underlying causes of the cycles of violence” that have plagued the region. “I encourage you to take the courageous steps necessary to prevent a onestate reality of perpetual conflict that is incompatible with realizing the national aspirations of Israeli and Palestinian people,” Ban said, speaking in Jerusalem

alongside Netanyahu. Netanyahu asked Ban to use his final six months in office to rectify what he called the United Nations’ unfair treatment of Israel. He singled out the U.N. Human Rights Council, which he said always condemns Israel, the “country that does more to promote and protect human rights and liberal values than any other in the blood-soaked Middle East.” “Our progressive democracy has faced more country-specific resolutions, more country-specific condemnation at the U.N. Human Rights Council than all the other countries combined,” Netanyahu said. “And I believe that this is a profound betrayal of the United Nations’ noble mandate.” Peace negotiations with the Palestinians have been largely at a standstill since Netanyahu took office in

2009, with the last round of U.S.-brokered talks collapsing two years ago. Later in the day, Ban met with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank, where he called on Palestinian leaders “to act effectively, particularly against incitement.” Ban also urged the Palestinians to end the rift between Abbas’ Fatah movement in the West Bank and the Islamic militant group Hamas in the Gaza Strip. He said stability in Gaza requires Israel to lift the blockade it imposed on the enclave in 2007, when Hamas seized control. Abbas said “our hands will always be extended for peace on the basis of the two-state solution with the 1967 border, but the problem is the continuation of the occupation and settlements.” Abbas thanked Ban

signs were posted there with photos of them, warning visitors not to give money to panhandlers. “Hopefully it (the signs) will serve as a deterrent. The Buddhist Council will also continue our efforts to educate the public to beware of fake monk panhandlers,” read another Facebook post. Similarly robed men have been spotted in San Francisco and other cities asking tourists to sign their “peace petition” before demanding cash. In China, authorities said the problem of “fake” monks begging in the streets prompted them to create an online registry of all actual Buddhist and Taoist sites. In Times Square, the

warnings came too late for tourist Rob Cardillo of Pennsylvania. He gave a robed man $10 to help out

with his temple, without ever asking anything about the temple or what the money would be used for.

training another Christian group, known as Dwekh Nawsha. The House of Representatives’ draft 2017 U.S. defense bill specifies that direct assistance may be provided to “local security forces, including ethnic and religious minority groups, with a national security mission.” The bill still needs to be approved by the Senate and signed by the president, and its vague wording gives Washington considerable discretion over whom to support and how. But groups such as the NPU hope it means that financial aid and direct military support could be forthcoming. The 300-or-so fighters of the NPU have purchased some of their weapons themselves, and received around 100 rifles from the Iraqi army. Their salaries have been paid by the Iraqi government since spring. Yet the Christians are divided among themselves. There are at least two more Christian armed groups operating in the area, where they vie for influence. One rival group, the Nineveh Plains Forces, is based in the town of Telskof, where half-collapsed buildings and bomb craters remain from vicious fighting against Islamic State militants in May. The NPF have also received training from American private military trainers. But unlike the Iraqi-supported NPU, the NPF’s support comes from the peshmerga, the armed forces of the northern semi-autonomous Kurdish region in Iraq.

They have received arms and other equipment from them, although because the cash-strapped peshmerga are struggling to equip themselves properly, the NPF receive “only leftovers,” NPF commander Safaa Khamro said. The NPF and the NPU are prone to squabbling: Each speaks highly of its own battlefield successes and accuses the other of running away from fighting, harboring secret agendas or just being propaganda outfits. They even occupy separate positions on the front line. The Kurdish regional government and the central government in Baghdad are vying for influence over Ninevah province, and are hardening the divisions between the Christian groups. The NPF describes itself as part of the Kurdish region’s defense system. The NPU sees itself as an official Iraqi security force; most of the leaders are former Iraqi army officers and many of the men have Iraqi flags on their uniform. Hajar Ismail, a spokesman at the Ministry of Peshmerga, said the policy of the Iraqi Kurdish regional government was to encourage Assyrian Christians who want to fight to join the peshmerga, not to form their own armed groups. Nevertheless, northern Iraq is awash with various militia forces, representing the many ethnic and sectarian groups of the area, including Kurds, Arabs, Assyrians and Yazidis. Currently the U.S. and other Western countries are providing direct military

assistance to the Iraqi security forces and the Kurdish peshmerga, but not to other groups. The Christian militias hope that the U.S. bill could change this. They readily admit that their relatively small numbers and shortage of equipment mean they do not play a major role in the anti-IS campaign. U.S. financial support might allow them to the Christians to play a bigger role, but it’s unlikely to heal the rifts between them.

for visiting the family of Mahmoud Badran, 15, who was killed earlier this month by Israeli troops in what the military said appeared to be an accidental shooting. With little hope for a resumption of talks, a group of retired Israeli security chiefs on Tuesday presented a plan for breaking the deadlock. The group, Commanders for Israel’s Security, is proposing a series of Israeli steps that it says would enhance security and improve conditions for restarting talks toward a final negotiated peace deal. “The basis of the plan is to change the dynamic on the ground and to change the political atmosphere,” said retired Maj. Gen. Danny Rothschild, a former West Bank commander. The group includes more than 200 retired generals and former senior officials from the Mossad and Shin Bet security agencies and national police force. Their opinions carry great weight in security-obsessed Israel. Their “Security First” plan calls for Israel to complete construction of its West Bank separation barrier and relinquish claims to all land outside the structure – or more than 90 percent of the territory. It also recommends freezing some settlement construction and taking steps to improve the Palestinian economy, including in Arab areas of east Jerusalem. The Palestinians seek all of the West Bank and east Jerusalem – areas captured by Israel in 1967 – as parts of a future state. The group acknowledges that the steps it’s proposing fall short of Palestinian demands.

The unbelievable Mr. Becker

A Cuban doctor who moves history WASHINGTON – When awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by George W. Bush in 2007, Dr. Oscar Biscet had a scheduling conflict, being in a Cuban prison. At the White House ceremony, Bush called Michael him a Gerson “danEmail: michael gerous man ... gerson@wash in the same way that Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi were dangerous.” It was not until three years later in a dark cell that another prisoner told him what the citation read that day had said. Recently, unexpectedly, Biscet was allowed by the Cuban regime to travel to the Bush Institute in Dallas and finally receive the award from Bush’s hands. Biscet explains this as part of the regime’s effort to create “the impression of change.” That impression was dimmed a bit by the humiliating searches he was subjected to at the airport on his departure. Knowing the police would rummage through his suitcase, Biscet left a surprise: a Cuban flag covering his belongings. It is the kind of in-yourface defiance displayed by many dissidents. Biscet is offended to the core that the country he loves is occupied by squalid autocrats who have run it into the ground. Political heroism is often expressed by the simple inability to stomach the next indignity. For this attitude, Biscet has spent 12 of his 54 years in Cuban jails. His first offense was exposing deception at the heart of Cuban health care. In the early 1990s, Biscet (an internist and medical teacher) began documenting “the mix between politics and medicine” that kept child mortality rates in Cuba so low. The government pressured hospitals and doctors to pressure women with problem pregnancies to abort, in order to post better statistics. “If they know a baby may have congenital malformations,” Biscet told me, “they are killed before birth, unless parents show very strong objections.” He explains: “It is all about appearances.” The largest question since President Obama’s opening to the Cuban government: Are we seeing changes that are more than appearances? There is little doubt the regime is increasingly isolated, with its ally Venezuela

Politics is sometimes called “the art of the possible.” As the year 2016 goes forward, however, politics continues to defy that saying. Object lesson No. 1 is the 114th House race in western Reno County. Here we find the most unlikely of Republican candidates, Herchel Crainer, who is challenging State Rep. Jack Thimesch. Pulling his voting history from the election clerk’s office, you see Crainer has voted in all recent Democrat primaries and is in fact a lifelong Democrat until his “conversion” in the spring of 2016. An Obama-era Democrat in Republican clothing: Who is going to buy that? I wish more GOP voters had been with me at the April 25 meeting sponsored by the progressive liberals of the Mod Squad. This meeting was notable in that the main speaker was one Pedro Irigonegaray, a Topeka lawyer on the left wing of the Kansas legal community – a man so far left, in fact, that he bragged to the audience that he was the lawyer for Planned Parenthood and the infamous Wichita abortionist George Tiller. Mr. Irigonegaray spent much time that day with Crainer and publicly gushed his approval of “how great” Crainer was and how he wanted him in Topeka. So as a “Republican,” in a district and party that is overwhelmingly pro-life, you are endorsed by the most pro-abortion lawyer in Kansas? That is politically unbelievable. Unbelievably dumb. Yet another political candidate was present at the event on April 25 – none other than State Rep. Steven Becker, R-Buhler. Becker’s feelings for Irigonegaray were even stronger than Crainer’s. Becker told those assembled that Irigonegaray is a “rock star” and a lawyer he admires and looks up to. Good Lord! Do Republican

in socialism-induced chaos and a more hostile government coming in Brazil. The Castro government seems interested in freeing up economic space for small and medium-sized businesses (though not for doctors and lawyers). But jobs in tourism are rewarded to regime favorites and cronies, including former military. There is no indication that the regime is opening social or political space. To the contrary, the Communist Party is overcompensating in its revolutionary zeal, including an old-fashioned diatribe by Fidel Castro against Obama and American imperialism. Americans naturally view these events through the lens of their own interests. Obama’s March visit to Cuba was viewed by many as a diplomatic breakthrough. Dissidents see things differently. “For us,” Biscet’s wife, Elsa, says, “the faces of the Castros on posters are like the faces of Hitler and Stalin. To see the president of a democratic government embrace these people was discouraging.” People born into free societies have a difficult time imagining the experience of totalitarianism. In Cuba, the party ultimately controls every job. Biscet once took work at a steel factory. When his political history was discovered, he was fired. At the beginning of the regime, there were mass confiscations and killings. Then large-scale incarceration and forced exile for many Cuban patriots. Now, says Elsa, there are also “policemen in the mind.” Everyone feels watched. “That fear is what now controls the population,” says Oscar Biscet. “And it is a justified fear.” Obama often talks about dictators and terrorists being on “the wrong side of history.” This can be a source of confidence, or a form of abdication. When progress is seen as the result of a ticking clock or impersonal forces, it acts as a release from responsibility. History is generally moved in the right direction by individuals willing to sacrifice their lives and liberty for the liberty of others. Standing up for “dangerous” men and women is not a distraction from diplomacy. It is one of the great comparative advantages of American foreign policy. We benefit from the advance of the democratic values that gave our nation birth – a birth attended by men very much like Dr. Oscar Biscet. Michael Gerson is a columnist for The Washington Post Writers Group.

Paul Waggoner Email: wagg onerpm@ voters admire a person who gladly gives of his time representing the ACLU, Mikey Weinstein’s secularist Military Religious Freedom Foundation, Planned Parenthood and abortionist George Tiller? Certainly not! But the Republican incumbent in the 104th District does. I spent time talking with numerous pro-life leaders in Wichita this spring, asking their opinions of Becker. It was always the same: Eyes roll, they look away, they shake their heads. The political leaders on the front lines of the pro-life movement in Kansas have zero trust in Becker or his sincerity. One group literally called him a “mediocre representative.” This low appraisal of Becker’s legislative performance I must concur with, particularly after listening to him closely at multiple forums and venues this spring. At the Feb. 13 forum, he was against the property tax lid on local governments (which passed both houses) but favors the Obamacare expansion of Medicaid in Kansas (which failed to even get a vote). Becker is, in person, vague and elusive in discussing budget matters and the taxes he wants to raise on Kansans, but he is eloquent in explaining his position favoring lawyers dominating judicial selection committees. Then, with all the other issues voters really care about, his personal “crusade” is against the death penalty for murderers (like the Carr brothers), of all things. (Hutchinson News 11/11/15) Even more appalling are Becker’s

adamant attacks on bills protecting religious freedom. At the March 18 forum, Becker went on and on about how he is “strongly against” SB 175, which passed both houses and was designed to protect campus religious groups. This intensity here is part of Becker’s backstory as a local proponent for gay “rights” and gay marriage. His affection for Equality Kansas lobbyist Tom Witt is wellknown in Topeka. And once Becker knew he would be challenged by conservative Lowell Peachey, his first political fundraiser was at the home of Jon Powell, local leader of the gay-rights cause. How sad. When you are “representing” the people of a House seat in Kansas where 79 percent of the people voted in favor of traditional marriage in 2005 (89 percent in Becker’s own Buhler precinct) and where a Jon Powell-sponsored petition for special legal status for homosexuality was rejected 2-1 by many north-side Hutchinson precincts in 2012, why is Becker so uncompromising? You would think he would modify his opinions in light of the fact that his constituents have already spoken twice on these issues. But no, in fact, Becker doubles down on his liberal social agenda. This is unbelievably ignorant politically. But it is also unbelievably telling. Becker is an ideologue on the death penalty, on lawyers and judicial selection, on attacking religious liberty, and in favoring gay “rights.” He certainly does not represent his district well, nor does he care to. GOP voters will have the last laugh Aug. 2 as they decide his political fate – a fate, I believe, of more bunkhouse time than Statehouse time for the unbelievable Mr. Becker. Paul Waggoner is a Hutchinson resident and business owner.


U.S. must change its ‘Wild West’ mentality There is an old saying, “Money is the root of all evil,” and that is more apparent every day. We don’t pick our candidates anymore. The rich and influential people like the Koch brothers and the Waltons pick them – or should I say “buy” them? When the National Rifle Association started, it was to teach safety and regulations to young hunters, but it has evolved into an organization that promotes all kinds of blow-up practices with military weapons and equipment that should be only in the hands of the police and the military.

The gun craze can be laid at the feet of the NRA, but the overabundance of weapons is the greed of the manufacturers and the dealers who sell these weapons (and the importers, too). The more they sell, the more money they make, and they are very good at making money. They don’t care about the tragic results of their endeavors. I cringe at the Second Amendment charge. The amendment states only that “a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” That was necessary when our country was new, but we now have modern police departments that are able to handle

anything, and an army of the best in the world, and we no longer need a militia. I’m not against guns for hunting or for sport or even for anyone who needs security for any reason, but no one outside the police and the military needs a weapon like the Uzi or machine-gun-type armaments. We are the only nation with a “Wild West” mentality, and we need to change our ideas of what security really is. As I write this, I am watching the takeover of the House to force our representatives to represent us, the people, and vote to change our ideas of what is important, the gun lobbyists or us – the American people and our rights.

He has been faced with hundreds, if not thousands, of decisions to make during his impeccable career. Berger’s opponent, on the other hand, has taken his orders from Gov.

Ann Marie Bartlett Jennings grows asparagus, strawberries, grapevines, raspberry shrubs, carrots, snow peas, zucchinis, radishes, sweet corn, cantaloupe and even watermelon on her 10-acre property behind her home, seen June 22, in the southwest corner of Dighton.

Dream • From Page A1 spring and summer, they, too, will be harvested for the community. The Jenningses are planting the seeds of their dreams for their 10 acres of land on the southwest corner of town. The couple met in Denver, where both were starting careers, following college. Once they married, they began thinking about children, Ann Marie said the conversation began centering on whether Denver was the place they wanted to raise kids. They agreed it wasn’t. James grew up in St. Louis, and both were leaning toward the smalltown life she experienced being raised in Dighton. Plus, if she had a family she wanted to be closer to her dad, Gary Bartlett, and extended relatives. Fortunately for Ann Marie, a job as district manager of the local Conservation District opened up and she was hired. James was hired at the local bank but has since gone to work for the Garden City Co-op in the Dighton Division of crop production. Now their children, Cooper, 4, and Harper, 22 months, spend hours outdoors with their parents learning to work in the garden, but mainly playing alongside their parents as they work. “We like being outside and doing this together,” said Ann Marie. “We’re both workaholics.” Along with the gardening and harvesting, and their full-time day jobs, James operates a lawn-mowing service in the evenings. Ann Marie jokes that at 5 a.m. she’s working in her garden like a farmer. Late at night, after the children are asleep, they both are working in the unlit garden with lights strapped on their heads. This year is a learning venture. Many of the seeds were started early in a low tunnel. Then James quickly built a fence to protect their crops from the rabbits. Plus, he built a wall with pallets to help protect tomatoes from the sometimes harsh Kansas wind. Drip irrigation has been placed throughout the large garden. A weed barrier covers about half the ground. Plus there is an intensive tomato trellis system using hedge posts and wire. “There will be a lot of tomato pruning throughout the season,” Ann Marie said.

KRLD-AM in Dallas-Fort Worth reports the governing council of the Fort Worth suburb of White Settlement voted 3-0 to let Browser stay at the library two weeks after voting 2-1 to give the tabby 30 days to check out. Mayor Ron White had said the move against Browser was a response to officials’ denial of permission to an employee to bring a puppy to work at City Hall. But he says he was overwhelmed with more than 1,000 messages on social media, all in support of keeping Browser on the job. The vote was taken without hearing from Browser’s supporters who jammed the council chamber.

has come in handy for Ann Marie, who uses both old-fashioned signage as well as social media to get the word out about their farm-fresh produce. Plus, she designed a whimsical farm market stand built in an old trailer bed complete with a roof. She then had the local shop class build it for her. Now in the height of growing season she rushes home from the office on her lunch break and picks and cleans vegetables to have them fresh for the stand each night. She keeps everything refrigerated until the market opens from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. It is located in front of their house at 303 S. Fifth. Every vegetable is identified and prices are listed on small chalkboards. Then she goes about her busy schedule and leaves the stand on the honor system, complete with a cash box. On Saturday mornings they hook the trailer to a vehicle and drive to Dighton’s farmers market in the city park. Perfect timing The Jenningses’ decision to grow a huge garden this spring was fortuitous, said Skip Mancini, host of the

local public radio garden show “Growing on the High Plains.” “This is a good year for it with all the rain,” Mancini said. Most years, she said, it’s harder to grow produce or flowers because of the typical dry weather. It can be particularly challenging for those living in the country without a well. “People will appreciate their produce,” Mancini said. The southwest Kansas gardening guru said the abundant rain has affected her Haskell County garden in a positive way. “It has been an incredible spring and a most unusual one. Everything is greener and there are big leaves and a lot of foliage on squash and cucumber vines. There are big bushy plants this year,” Mancini said. “Nothing can take the place of rain coming from the sky.” Meanwhile, this first year the Jenningses are trying everything, from herbs to okra and pumpkins. She’ll see what succeeds in their part of Kansas, as well as what is popular with consumers through the growing season. They are already planning for the next growing season and have received some federal funding for a high tunnel, a plastic-covered structure that is used to grow crops in late winter and early spring. “I have always liked having fresh food,” Ann Marie said. Now as a mother she appreciates that her children are eating the freshest of vegetables. Plus, there is the added bonus of spending time outdoors together watching the garden grow.

Royals can’t complete comeback BY ROB MAADDI AP Sports Writer

PHILADELPHIA – Odubel Herrera put the finishing touches on his All-Star bid. Herrera hit a leadoff homer and drove in two runs, Jeremy Hellickson threw six sharp innings and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Kansas City Royals 4-3 Friday night for their fourth straight win. Herrera is batting .306 with nine homers and an .835 OPS. He’s a strong candidate to represent the Phillies at the Midsummer Classic in San Diego. “If that happens, great,” Herrera said through an interpreter. “If it doesn’t, I just want to help my team win.” Asked if he feels he

Kendrys Morales hit a two-run homer off David Hernandez in the eighth before the right-hander settled down to retire the next three batters. Jeanmar Gomez finished for his 22nd save in 24 tries. “He’s swinging the bat really well right now,” Royals manager Ned Yost said of Morales, who is 13 for his last 20. “He gave us an opportunity to try to tie the game.” Back home after sweeping the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Phillies snapped a seven-game home losing streak.

Plenty of breathing room

Former top basketball recruit Malik Newman is transferring to Kansas, coach Bill Self announced Friday morning. Newman chose KU over Oregon, Western Kentucky and North Carolina State. The 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Jackson, Miss., played last season for Mississippi State. He was ranked as the No. 8 player in the class of 2015 and originally considered KU before choosing the Bulldogs. Newman, who will have to sit out a year because of transfer rules, averaged 11.3 points per game and made 38 percent of his three-pointers at Mississippi State. He also declared himself eligible for the NBA Draft after the season before withdrawing a few weeks later. “We recruited Malik extremely hard out of high school,” Self said. “When he entered the draft and decided to pull his name out

Serena survives at Wimbledon, racket does not; Djokovic down BY HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer

LONDON – Dismayed at dropping the first set after being a single point from taking it, Serena Williams sat in her Centre Court sideline chair and cracked her racket against the turf once, twice, three times, four. Then she casually flung the racket, hurling it so far behind her that it landed in the lap of a TV cameraman filming her second-round match against 65th-ranked American Christina McHale. Williams recovered to force a third set, only to fall behind yet again Friday,

perilously close to what would have been the sixtime champion’s earliest exit in 17 Wimbledon appearances. But as she herself declared afterward: “Mentally, no one can break me.” Eventually, the top-ranked Williams did indeed come through, edging McHale 6-7 (7), 6-2, 6-4 for a thrill-a-minute victory at a tournament so rain drenched this week that matches will be scheduled on the middle Sunday for only the fourth time in 139 years. The dramatics of Williams’ match, which concluded with the main stadium’s retractable roof

closed, were equaled by those of her older sister Venus: She had to wait out three rain delays, including one of more than an hour that arrived, of all times, right as she held a match point. But Venus, owner of five titles at the All England Club, persevered, too, barely getting past 29th-seeded Daria Kasatkina 7-5, 4-6, 10-8 to become one of only two women already into the fourth round. “You see a winner go by you, and a lob go in, and you’re like, ‘My god, what’s next?’” said Venus, who at 36 is the oldest woman

All-Stars Andre Drummond and DeMar DeRozan are staying put, as are Hassan Whiteside and Nicolas Batum. Many more players are on the move – and some are getting paid like they never could have imagined. Chandler Parsons, Evan Turner and Timofey Mozgov were among the players cashing in Friday during the first day of free agency – and really, of a new era – in the NBA. With revenues rising and the salary cap soaring right along with it, good players were being paid like AllStars, while All-Stars were getting contracts that used to go only to superstars. And the players at the top of the class haven’t even started agreeing to deals yet. Kevin Durant and Al Horford probably can’t wait to see what they get after watching what lesser players on the market have already received. For example: Parsons – four years, $94 million from Memphis. Turner – four years, $70 million from Portland. Mozgov – four years, $64 million from the Lakers. Their timing was even better than their play, as they became free agents at the ideal moment. With the NBA’s national TV contracts

AP Source: Kevin Durant meets with Warriors BY CLIFF BRUNT AP Sports Writer

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Golden State Warriors want to lure Kevin Durant and put even more offensive firepower on the floor. Durant, the top prize in this year’s free-agent class, met with the Warriors on Friday in The Hamptons. A person close to the situation said Warriors owner Joe Lacob, general manager Bob Myers, coach Steve Kerr and All-Stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were

present. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter. Media reports say Durant, a four-time scoring champion and 2014 MVP with the Oklahoma City Thunder, is scheduled to meet with the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers in the coming days. It makes sense for the Warriors to try to add Durant – he averaged 30 points per game against

them in this year’s Western Conference finals and torched them for a career-high 54 points in 2014. Durant could make a record-setting franchise even better. Golden State set the league record with 73 wins and led the league in scoring. The Warriors fell just short of a repeat NBA title, however, losing to Cleveland in seven games. Adding Durant certainly would improve their chances of getting back to the top next year while dealing a blow to the Thunder,

one of their top rivals in the West. Oklahoma City had a 3-1 lead on the Warriors in the conference finals this season before losing the next three games. Durant has had to carry much of the scoring load for the Thunder over the years, but having Curry and Thompson next to him would open up space to operate that he hasn’t had during his tenure in Oklahoma City. Durant led the Thunder to the NBA Finals in 2012, and to the Western Conference finals in four of the past six years – and he’s only 27. He

recovered from a broken bone in his right foot that cost him much of last season to post one of the best years of his career this season– 28.2 points, 8.2 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. Durant met with Thunder general manager Sam Presti on Thursday, the eve of free agency. If he stays put, Oklahoma City appears to have the tools to make a move in the West. He’d still have dynamic point guard Russell Westbrook by his side, and Steven Adams and Enes Kanter are emerging

young stars. The Thunder made a draft night trade and sent forward Serge Ibaka to Orlando for guard Victor Oladipo, forward Ersan Ilyasova and draft pick Domantas Sabonis, improving the team’s depth and shoring up a question mark at shooting guard. Durant can maximize his earning potential by signing a deal with the Thunder that allows him to become a free agent again next year, then signing a longer deal when the salary cap takes another jump.

NBA disqualifies, Newman • dismisses Mayo for drug violation From Page B1

BY BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK- O.J. Mayo was dismissed and disqualified from the NBA on Friday for violating the terms of the league’s anti-drug program, the first player to receive that punishment in a decade. The league said the No. 3 overall pick in the 2008 draft out of USC is eligible to apply for reinstatement in two years. Mayo, 28, spent the past three seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks. He averaged 7.8 points in 41 games last season, including 24 starts. According to rules of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program, information regarding the testing or treatment of a player can’t be disclosed by the league, his team or the union. However, there are only a few violations that would lead to Mayo’s punishment. A player can be dismissed or disqualified from the NBA for testing positive for a drug of abuse, or if he is convicted of or pleads guilty to the use,

possession or distribution of a drug of abuse. The list of drugs of abuse includes amphetamines, cocaine, LSD and opiates such as heroin, codeine and morphine. A third positive test for a performance-enhancing drug also leads to a player being dismissed and disqualified, as does being convicted of or pleading guilty to a crime involving the use, possession or distribution of one. The last player to receive the penalty was Chris “Birdman” Andersen in January 2006, when he was playing for the New Orleans Hornets. He was reinstated in March 2008, won a championship with Miami in 2013 and spent last season with the Heat and Memphis Grizzlies. Mayo was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves but his rights were dealt to Memphis in exchange for Kevin Love’s. Mayo played four seasons for the Grizzlies and one for the Dallas Mavericks before joining the Bucks. He has averaged 13.8 points in 547 career games.

and transfer, we convinced him to come to campus. We feel very fortunate that we were able to influence him and his family that this is the best place for him to try to realize his goals both on and off the basketball court.” The commitment helps Self potentially protect against a major roster turnover in 2017-18. After this season, Frank Mason and Landen Lucas will graduate, and Josh Jackson, Svi Mykhailiuk, Carlton Bragg and Devonte’ Graham all potentially could leave early to go pro. The only danger could be if Newman trains with KU and decides to declare for the draft again after this season, which technically could still be a possibility.

Lightfoot and Liberty transfer Evan Maxwell. “In our opinion, Malik was a top-five player coming out of high school,” Self said. “He’s a combo guard that has good size,

can really shoot the ball and stretch it. There are things he needs to get better at, but the year off will allow him to address things that the NBA people wanted to see more

of out of him. “Even though it didn’t happen the first time for us, we were excited to know we are getting a fabulous talent – just a year later than what we originally planned.”

Thunder add Wichitan Adrian Griffin to staff THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Thunder have added Adrian Griffin, an assistant coach, and also promoted Vin Bhavnani and Royal Ivey as assistant Griffin coaches. The team made the announcement on Friday. Griffin joins Donovan’s staff after spending last season as an assistant coach

with the Orlando Magic. In 2014, he worked with the USA team that captured gold at the FIBA World Cup. Bhavnani spent the past six seasons as Oklahoma City’s manager of advanced scouting/player development. Ivey was promoted after serving as a player development assistant with the Thunder last season. Mark Daigneault, who joined the Thunder staff earlier this year, will return to his role as head coach of the D-League affiliate Oklahoma City Blue and lead the Thunder in the Orlando Summer League.

Memphis Grizzlies, Conley agree on $153 million deal THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A person with direct knowledge of the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Mike Conley is staying with the Memphis Grizzlies after agreeing to a five-year, $153 million deal. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal cannot be finalized until at least July 7, when the NBA’s offseason moratorium on

player movement ends. The person said the agreement is in principle and the two sides were hammering out the final details. Keeping Conley was Memphis’ clear top priority, evidenced by the lengths that the team went to – not just financially, but in terms of effort. The Grizzlies released an elaborate video with teammates like Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph boasting of Conley’s meaning to the team.

NBA • From Page B1 worth more than $2.6 billion beginning with next season, the salary cap that’s tied to revenues will soar well beyond its previous record to between $90-95 million. Some players didn’t have to wait long to claim their share of it. Drummond’s five-year maximum contract to stay in Detroit will be worth $130 million, just a share more than the $128 million Bradley Beal got to remain in Washington. DeRozan will do a little better in Toronto and Charlotte kept Batum for about $120 million. But the Hornets lost a couple of key players from their 48-win team, as Jeremy Lin got a threeyear, $36 million contract from Brooklyn, and the Pacers lured Al Jefferson to Indiana with a three-year, $30 million contract. None of the contracts can be signed until July 7, after next season’s salary cap is set and the moratorium is lifted.

Former players pay respects to Buddy Ryan BY GARY B. GRAVES AP Sports Writer

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. – Buddy Ryan was remembered not just as a defensive master who won two Super Bowls and spawned a legacy carried on by players and twin sons now coaching in the NFL. He also motivated players with a gruff but caring approach that helped them succeed on the field and in life. Ryan had his players’ backs no matter how tough and demanding he seemed, a loyalty noted and reciprocated by many of his pupils who traveled far to pay their respects Friday. “The thing I loved about Buddy is that everybody got the same treatment,” Hall of Fame linebacker Mike Singletary said during a 20-minute eulogy at St. Lawrence Catholic Church that ended with an emotional pause. “There’s not enough time to go into so many other things that he taught me as a player, as a husband, as a father. But what he did for me I am eternally. ... in debt.” Gratitude was the common theme as former players from several teams Ryan coached said their formal goodbyes to the defensive mastermind, who died Tuesday at 85. Notably present were several members of the 1985 Chicago Bears, who won the Super Bowl thanks to the

After Peter Bourjos struck out looking, Cody Asche walked. Perez then picked Asche off first, but the Phillies challenged and the call was overturned. Maikel Franco followed with an RBI single. Asche ripped an RBI double to right in the fifth to put the Phillies ahead 3-1. Herrera’s RBI single in the sixth made it 4-1. Herrera gave the Phillies a 1-0 lead on his ninth homer and first leading off. Alcides Escobar hit a double and scored on Cheslor Cuthbert’s single to tie it at 1 in the second.

Also present were the members of the Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals, two NFL teams Ryan led as a head coach. Ryan was also a defensive line and linebackers coach for the 1968 champion

New York Jets. “It was great to see Eagles players along with a lot of Bears, and not just on that ‘85 team,” said Gary Fencik, a defensive back on that Bears team and a pall bearer. “There were just so many (guys) that played for Buddy.” Ryan’s family – including Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan and twin brother Rob, an assistant – and many

friends hugged, smiled and took selfies as they no doubt reminisced about the man and success he built. Judging from the Hall of Famers and Pro Bowlers present, it was more like an NFL reunion. And that speaks volumes about Ryan’s legacy. Besides Ditka, Fencik and Singletary, the Bears contingent included Hall of Fame defensive linemen Richard

Bolt’s injured hamstring puts Rio in doubt BY TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Usain Bolt’s Olympic quest is in doubt, after the sprint superstar left his country’s national championships with a hamstring injury shortly before he was going to run the 100-meter final. And that was just one part of a bizarre night at National Stadium. Bolt’s longtime rival Yohan Blake won the 100 title and formally qualified for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics – but only after a false-start disqualification call against him was overturned after review. But even after Blake regrouped and prevailed, all the buzz was about Bolt and his status going forward especially since the national

meet serves as the Jamaican Olympic trials. He’s not out of the Rio Games, but his status hinges now on how he does at a meet in London in three weeks. Bolt said he was diagnosed with a Grade 1 hamstring tear – the most mild sort – and that the discomfort began presenting itself in his quarterfinal race on Thursday night. “I have submitted a medical exemption to be excused from the 100m final and the remainder of the National Championships,” Bolt said in a statement released through Jamaican officials. “I will seek treatment immediately and hope to show fitness at the London Anniversary Games on July 22 to earn selection for the Olympic Games in Rio.”

felt about Ryan’s devotion, and added, “when you look around this room and see all these men, that is the result of a coach that is loyal.” Ryan was buried in a private ceremony at Lawrenceburg Cemetery. Before the procession pulled away, players mingled with both Rex and Rob Ryan, with discussions of football overheard. Ryan raised horses on a farm here and Singletary suggested that he might train some up in heaven. On the other hand, McMichael speculated that his former coach wouldn’t be far from his first love. “I don’t know who the defensive coordinator is on God’s football team up there,” McMichael said, “but he just lost his job.”

Collegiate League Baseball, scored all their runs in Thursday’s doubleheader sweep of the Kansas Cannons in their final at-bats, keeping the home fans on edge. They relaxed this time. The Monarchs didn’t mess around, as six straight reached base with two outs in the second inning. “It’s always comforting to go up 5-0 early on,” said left fielder Aaron Mack, who had two singles and two RBIs. “We settled in and relaxed. That’s when we play our best baseball and have fun.” Monarchs pitcher Ben Wusterbarth didn’t need more than those five runs. He carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning, where he allowed one unearned run and two singles. The Hutchinson Community College pitcher struck out five and walked just one. “I was throwing my fastball, and I was working off my slider,” Wusterbarth said. “I threw some changeups, and (catcher) Cole (Donaldson) did a great job back there like like he always does. He called a good game.” Wusterbarth’s outing was needed as the Monarchs have a four more games through Independence Day.

Female baseball players to start for men’s independent team BY KURT VOIGT AP Sports Writer

Kelsie Whitmore only ever wanted to play baseball, so why pass up just about any opportunity to continue doing so at this point? That was the thinking behind the 17-year-old Californian’s decision to be one of two women to try their hand at the professional version of the national pastime. Both Whitmore and Team USA baseball teammate Stacy Piagno, 25, signed with the independent Sonoma Stompers of the

Pacific Association earlier this week. They were making their debuts on Friday night, with Whitmore in left field and Piagno on the mound. “We hope this sends a message to the rest of the baseball world that there is room for women and girls in this game, from Little League to the Major Leagues,” Stompers general manager Theo Fightmaster said. Neither Whitmore nor Piagno are strangers to baseball, with each having played with Team USA previously – including at last

summer’s Pan American Games, where they won silver medals. It was that connection to the “game I’ve always loved” that helped land Whitmore a spot with the independent team just a few short months after graduating from Temecula Valley (California) High School. Whitmore, who played baseball exclusively throughout her high school career, had taken part with an organization called Baseball For All when she was young. And it was a member of that group, which aims to provide

opportunities for girls to participate in baseball, who first contacted Whitmore to see if she was interested in joining the professional ranks. After a few scouting trips to watch Whitmore, the Stompers – who last season fielded the sport’s first active openly gay player, Sean Conroy – agreed the fit and timing were right. “Any opportunity like this, of course I wanted to do it,” Whitmore said. Whitmore first played for Team USA as a 16-year-old after having been a part of the team’s development

program for three years. That while she was still in high school, and after having politely declined chances to play varsity softball instead because of her love for baseball. “My relationship with baseball is different than anything else,” Whitmore said. “It’s like my best friend. I hate it some days, but the next day I just love it and am enjoying it. It’s competition all the time, and there’s so much to learn.” Whitmore will make the switch to softball later this year, having accepted a scholarship to play at

Cal State Fullerton. She was offered by the school after having never played the sport, with her only experience coming during a weekend camp following her junior year of high school. She’ll keep playing baseball as well, beginning Friday night – though she’ll do so without pay to ensure her NCAA eligibility isn’t jeopardized. “So far, I’ve tried to earn respect with everyone individually, but they’ve been great,” Whitmore said. “I’m lucky to have a good group of guys to play ball with.”

Of the way things went for her Friday, including the interruption at match point while she led 5-4 in the third and Kasatkina served at 3040, Venus said: “It was like a Hollywood script.” Serena’s mood soured when she had a set point in the first and appeared to have converted it, until McHale – who’s never been past the third round at a major – successfully challenged the call that her shot landed out. From there, McHale played aggressively, and when she grabbed that set, 21-time Grand Slam champion Serena took out her frustration on her racket. “I was just really, really, really angry. I had a lot of chances,” said Serena, who acknowledged she faces a fine for her display and joked that she needed to reach her racket-smashing quota for the season. “She got really lucky on some shots.” Despite all that went on in the siblings’ matches – they overlapped, so their mother, Oracene Price, hustled from No. 1 Court, where she saw Venus win, across the way to catch the end of Serena’s victory – the most shocking development Friday was what was going on in Novak Djokovic’s third-rounder against 28th-seeded Sam Querrey of the U.S. before it was suspended because of showers in the evening.

Given the way things were going for the No. 1-seeded Djokovic, he had to be thrilled that the match was halted, giving him a night to rest and regroup. Only one man managed to move his way into the fourth round: Roger Federer. He got

to play in the main stadium, with the roof overhead, and easily beat Britain’s Daniel Evans 6-4, 6-2, 6-2. Four other third-round men’s matches were suspended in progress. Worst of all, from a scheduling standpoint, one second-round men’s match is still not finished, with No. 24 Alexander Zverev locked

in a fifth set against Mikhail Youzhny. And three second-round women’s matches are also pending. That is why officials decided to scrap the traditional rest day on the first Sunday, something that was done only in 1991, 1997 and 2004. “I might take a day off tomorrow, just because I

can,” the 34-year-old Federer said with a smile. “Yeah, I can. I’m sorry, I can. I have to take them when I can. I’m an old guy.” Among the other winners Friday was 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro, who has had three operations on his left wrist since he last participated at Wimbledon in 2014. He

eliminated fourth-seeded Stan Wawrinka, a two-time major champion, 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (2), 6-3 to reach the third round. “My hands (are) shaking,” del Potro said after being regaled with a lengthy ovation at Centre Court. “It’s a great sensation for me, because I’m playing tennis again – and I feel alive.”

Phelps wins latest showdown with Lochte at US swim trials BY PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer

OMAHA, Neb. – Michael Phelps won his latest showdown with Ryan Lochte, capturing the 200-meter individual medley at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials Friday night. Phelps led a scintillating race from start to finish, but Lochte was with him stroke for stroke. Their arms were in almost perfect sync as they came to the wall, before Phelps pulled slightly ahead to touch in 1 minute, 55.91 seconds. Lochte was next at 1:56.22 and had no complaints about his consolation prize: an individual race at the Rio Olympics. The 11-time medalist injured his groin on the very first day of the meet, struggled in his next few races and was down to his final chance to get a swim of his own at the Summer Games. Now, that’s out of the way, which means Phelps and Lochte will carry their longtime rivalry to one more event in South America. Phelps is a three-time defending gold medalist in the 200 IM and the most decorated athlete in Olympic history with 18 golds and 22 medals overall. He’s now locked up two individual events for Rio,

Lochte finished in second place. having already qualified in the 200 butterfly. After shaking hands with Lochte as they hung together on the rope separating their sideby-side lanes, Phelps hustled off to the warmup pool to get ready for his second race of the night: the semifinals of the 100 fly. Meanwhile, another defending Olympic champion

went down at the trials. Tyler Clary finished third in the 200 backstroke behind California Aquatics teammates Ryan Murphy and Jacob Pebley, who will represent the U.S. team in Rio. Murphy grabbed the lead on the second lap and pulled away to win easily in 1:53.95 seconds. He completed a sweep of the backstroke

events, having also won the 100. Pebley held on for the second spot, touching in 1:54.77 to earn his first trip to the Olympics. Clary was next at 1:55.33, ending his hopes of defending the gold medal he won in London. Murphy seemed happier for his teammate, turning

toward Pebley and screaming when he saw a “2’’ beside his name. Pebley held a hand over his face, and then defiantly splashed the water in triumph. Clary hung alone on a rope in the third lane, unable to take his eyes off the scoreboard. Finally, he climbed over to congratulate the two swimmers who ended his

Olympics hopes. “That’s it,” Clary said. “I couldn’t be happier to be sending Team USA off with two backstrokers that I have a lot of respect for, and I know they are going to represent Team USA well in Rio.” Murphy wasn’t the only one pulling off a sweep. Lilly King followed up her victory in the 100 breaststroke by winning the 200 in 2:24.08 seconds. The 19-year-old from Indiana was followed by Molly Hannis, a 24-year-old who swims for Tennessee Aquatics. She took the second spot for Rio at 2:24.39, yet another swimmer who will be an Olympic rookie. It wasn’t totally a night for the upstarts. Anthony Ervin and Nathan Adrian were the top two qualifiers in the semifinals of the 50 freestyle. The 35-year-old Ervin led the way in 21.55, while Adrian was second quickest in 21.60. Both men are already on the team, with Ervin still seeking an individual event to go with his relay duty and Adrian set to defend his 100 free title from the London Games. Cullen Jones, silver medalist four years ago, was third quickest in 21.93 at age 32. Jimmy Feigen was fourth in 22.02 going into Saturday’s final.

Indians win 14th straight, beat Jays in 19 innings BY IAN HARRISON Associated Press

TORONTO – Carlos Santana homered in the 19th inning off infielder Darwin Barney and the Cleveland Indians set a franchise record by winning their 14th straight game, 2-1 over the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday. Cleveland won 13 straight in 1942 and again in 1951. It’s the longest winning streak since Atlanta won 14 straight in 2013. It’s the longest by an AL team since Oakland won 20 in a row in 2002. Santana doubled and scored in the third as the surging Indians survived a marathon game and disappointed a sellout crowd that came for a Canada Day matinee that lasted 6 hours and 13 minutes, featured 19 pitchers and saw 34 left on base. The 19 innings matched the longest game in Blue Jays history. Toronto played 19 against Detroit in August 2014. Having used seven of their eight relievers, the Indians turned to Saturday’s scheduled starter, Trevor Bauer, in the 15th. Bauer (7-2) worked five innings for the win. Only closer Cody Allen, who had worked the previous three games, did not pitch for Cleveland. After seven Blue Jays relievers combined to pitch 10 1-3 scoreless innings, Toronto turned to infielder Ryan Goins in the 18th. Jose Ramirez and Lonnie Chisenhall began the inning with singles, but Ramirez was caught in a rundown on Michael Martinez’s fielder’s choice grounder. After intentionally walking Tyler Naquin, Goins got out of the bases-loaded jam by getting Chris Gimenez to ground

Barney, who started the game at second base, replaced Goins in the 19th. The infielders became the ninth and 10th position players to pitch for Toronto. Santana greeted Barney (0-1) with a drive to right-center, his 17th. The Blue Jays loaded the bases with two outs in the 14th but Joba Chamberlain got reigning AL MVP Josh Donaldson to ground out. Donaldson nearly tied

it in the 19th but his drive to right was caught on the warning track. Toronto’s only run came in the sixth when Justin Smoak homered off Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin. It was the eighth of the season for Smoak and the 100th of his career. The Blue Jays lost major league RBI leader Edwin Encarnacion when he was ejected for arguing after being called out on strikes to end the first inning.

Manager John Gibbons was also ejected. All three Blue Jays batters were called out on strikes in the first, with Encarnacion livid after being rung up on a 3-2 pitch that looked outside. Encarnacion made contact with home plate umpire Vic Carapazza’s left shoulder after being ejected. Gibbons rushed out to break up the argument and was also tossed. Catcher Russell Martin

was ejected by Carapazza after striking out to end the 13th. A fuming Martin had to be restrained by bench coach DeMarlo Hale and third base coach Luis Rivera as he screamed at Carapazza. Cleveland’s Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to 13 games with an RBI single off Marcus Stroman in the third. Trainer’s room Blue Jays: OF Jose

NHL teams making splashes in opening hour of free agency BY LARRY LAGE AP Hockey Writer

Milan Lucic and Kyle Okposo, two of the NHL’s top free agents, took full advantage of two of the league’s worst teams eager to pair a veteran with a young star. The 28-year-old wingers each got $42 million, seven-year contracts Friday even though neither is a proven or prolific scorer. Okposo, coming off a 22goal year with the New York Islanders, moved upstate to join the Buffalo Sabres, who haven’t made the playoffs since 2011 or finished higher than seventh in their division in three years. Lucic, who scored just 20 times last season with the Los Angeles Kings, is following the money to play for the lowly Edmonton Oilers. “It’s about time this team starts heading in the right direction,” he said of the Oilers, who want to surround Connor McDavid with experienced talent. NHL teams didn’t waste time making a flurry of deals on the first shift of free agency. None involved a superstar player, not after Steven Stamkos decided to stay in Tampa Bay with an eight-year, $68 million contract agreed to earlier this week. Two days later, Tampa Bay may have made the best series of moves overall in a bid to stay near the top in the Eastern Conference. The Stanley Cup contender signed standout defenseman Victor Hedman to a $63 million, eight-year extension and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy to a $10.5 million, three-year extension. “It’s been a good week for us,” Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman said. It has been a bad decade for the Oilers, who haven’t made the playoffs since they lost Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals to the Carolina Hurricanes and had the fewest points in the Western Conference last season for the second time in three years. Lucic said two people, Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli and the 19-year-old McDavid, were the reason he joined a

been on the market. After spending his entire, 10-season career in St. Louis, David Backes (five years, $30 million) bolted to play for the Bruins. The Montreal Canadiens signed forward Alexander Radulov (one year, $5.75 million) to play in the NHL for the first time since he was with the Nashville Predators during the 2011-12 season. The Calgary Flames signed forward Troy Brouwer (four years, $18 million) hoping he can bring some success he helped St. Louis and Chicago have in the postseason. The San Jose Sharks added forward Mikkel Boedker (four years, $16 million) and defenseman David Schlemko (four years, $8.4 million) to bolster their chances of getting back to the Stanley Cup Finals. The Florida Panthers, stockpiling goaltenders, signed James Reimer (five years, $17 million) with Roberto Luongo and Reto Berra on the roster. The Toronto Maple Leafs, who probably dreamed of bringing Stamkos back home, had to settle for signing winger Matt Martin (four years, $10 million) to perhaps play on their fourth line. The Philadelphia Flyers signed forward Dale Weise (four years, $9.4 million) to address one of the team’s needs. The Minnesota Wild signed center Eric Staal (three years, $10.5 million) four years after making a splash by giving Zach Parise and Ryan Suter 13-year, $98 million contracts.

Coastal Carolina’s title brings some closure after 2010 disappointment

franchise that most highly touted free agents have ignored in recent summers. “The McDavid factor changes it all,” Lucic said. Lucic was also lured to Edmonton in part because of his relationship with Chiarelli, who was his general manager when he played for the Boston Bruins. Chiarelli said 12 teams tried to sign Lucic, indicating one of them was the Kings, the only franchise that could’ve offered him an eight-year deal under the NHL’s collective bargaining agreement. “He was offered a longer term,” Chiarelli said. “He was offered more money.” Like Lucic, Okposo will get a chance to play with one of the league’s most promising players, 19-year-old center Jack Eichel. “He knows Jack’s a great, young player,” Sabres general manager Tim Murray said. Here’s a look at some of the other notable moves on the opening day of NHL free agency: The New York Islanders signed forwards Andrew Ladd (seven years, $38.5 million) and Jason Chimera (two years, $4.5 million) after losing Okposo and Nielsen. The Vancouver Canucks signed winger Loui Eriksson (six years, $36 million) coming off his 30-goal, 33-assist season in Boston. The Detroit Red Wings signed center Frans Nielsen (six years, $31.5 million) to address a need with the departure of Pavel Datsyuk and re-signed center Darren Helm (five years, $19.25 million) before he could have

BY ERIC OLSON AP Sports Writer

OMAHA, Neb. – Until this week, Gary Gilmore didn’t know if he would ever have as good a Coastal Carolina team as he did in 2010. That 55-win club was the No. 4 national seed for the NCAA Tournament but lost a pair of one-run games to South Carolina in super regionals. For six years, Gilmore was dogged by memories of watching the Gamecocks celebrate on his home field before they went on to win the first of two straight national championships. “Losing in 2010 was the hardest gut-wrenching loss of my life,” he said. On Thursday, Gilmore was holding the championship trophy. He and his Chanticleers won their school’s first national title in any sport, validation for a baseball program that ranks eighth in wins since 2000 but until this year couldn’t break through to make the College World Series. Their 4-3 victory over Arizona in the deciding Game 3 of the finals was their 41st in 50 games and gave them a nation-leading 54 wins against 18 losses. Though Gilmore liked this team coming into the season, he didn’t necessarily see a national championship coming. “I didn’t think we were where we were in just sheer

talent in 2010,” Gilmore said, “but I thought we were probably the second most talented team I had coached at Coastal Carolina at that point in time.” The 2010 team had five players who were drafted in the first 10 rounds, five others who were drafted and a free agent who made it to the major leagues. This year, only shortstop Michael Paez and third baseman Zach Remillard were taken in the first 10 rounds, and four others were selected between the 27th and 34th rounds. “Our motto has been ‘selfless and relentless’ for the last two years. It’s on the carpet in our locker room,” pitcher Alex Cunningham said. “Coach Gilmore, he’s literally the epitome of that. He embodies it in everything he does.” This year’s team ran away with the Big South Conference title but had to make some narrow escapes to reach Omaha. The Chanticleers were down to their last strike in the regional final at North Carolina State before finishing a ninth-inning comeback to advance. Second baseman Seth Lancaster, who delivered the winning hit in the regional final, was lost for the season in the super regional at LSU because of a torn knee ligament. The Chanticleers swept the Tigers in one of the toughest venues in the country on

Paez’s walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth. Then it was on to Omaha, where Coastal had to win four elimination games en route to the winner-take-all final Thursday. The Chanticleers led the nation in home runs but had just two in eight games at TD Ameritrade Park. They found other ways to win, taking advantage of the spacious outfield to hit 14 doubles, moving runners along with the bunt and getting the timely hit. They leaned heavily on a pitching staff whose competitiveness trumped its lack of elite talent and depth. CWS Most Outstanding Player Andrew Beck, who led the nation with 15 wins, pitched two complete games in bracket play and started Game 3 of the finals. Mike Morrison stepped out of his closer’s role to make his first start of the season in Game 2 of the finals and struck out 10 in 6 2/3 innings, both career highs. Zack Hopeck was a hard-luck loser in a finals opener in which the Chanticleers couldn’t solve JC Cloney, who pitched a complete-game shutout. “This group just somehow found a way to do something that two or three of the other teams that were in the same position weren’t able to do,” Gilmore said. “They made a pitch. They made a play. We got a hit. We did something that enabled us to do it.”

OMAHA, Neb. – Figures from a survey of supply managers in nine Midwest and Plains states have dropped slightly but still suggest economic growth ahead, according to a report issued Friday. The Mid-American Business Conditions index hit 50.1 in June, compared with 52.1 in May, the report said. The index generally

has been on the rise since dropping to a 12-month low of 39.6 in December. “The region’s manufacturing sector is expanding, but at a slow pace as gains for nondurable-goods producers more than offset continuing losses for regional durable-goods manufacturers,” said Creighton University economist Ernie Goss, who oversees the survey. Most survey participants

completed the survey before voters in Great Britain opted to leave the European Union. In 2015 the Midwest and Plains region exported almost $2 billion in goods to Great Britain and imported about $1.9 billion. A subsequent British recession or weak British currency would not have a significant impact on the nine states’ economy, but the region would benefit

from the strengthening of the dollar against a broad range of currencies, Goss said. The survey results are compiled into a collection of indexes ranging from zero to 100. Survey organizers say any score above 50 suggests economic growth. A score below that suggests decline. The survey covers Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri,

PUEBLO OF SANTA ANA, N.M. – A New Mexico pueblo that has become the latest U.S. tribe to buy back a swath of Native American ancestral land intends to keep the high desert tract in its natural state and petition the federal government to officially place it under the pueblo’s jurisdiction, tribal leaders said Friday. The Pueblo of Santa Ana’s purchase of the Alamo Ranch near the edge of the Albuquerque metro area was announced this week, with the ranch’s longtime owners – the family of former New Mexico Gov. Bruce King – saying they were confident the tribe would be good stewards of the area that was in their family for generations. The ranch went on the market in February for

Pueblo of Santa Ana Gov. Myron Armijo discusses his tribe’s decision to purchase a 100-square-mile ranch near the edge of the Albuquerque metro area Friday, on the Santa Ana Pueblo Indian Reservation in New Mexico. $33 million. Neither party has disclosed the final sale amount. “In traditional Santa Ana culture, land, water, life, traditions, family and

cultural identity are the foundation of what makes us go,” said Santa Ana Pueblo Gov. Myron Armijo. “We will – and I put this in bold – we will keep this land in its natural state.” The purchase comes as more tribes buy land with cultural or historical significance for Native Americans, and the U.S. government places hundreds of thousands of acres of those lands into trust for the tribes. With the purchase complete, Santa Ana Pueblo plans to next make a case to federal officials to begin the often yearslong, multistep process of taking its reacquired swath of land into trust. If successful, the move would ensure the land would always remain under tribal ownership because only a congressional vote can allow for land held in trust for a tribe by the U.S. government to be

taken or sold. In the past seven years, more than 415,000 acres have been taken into trust for tribes under the Obama administration. Top Interior Department officials say they aim to raise that figure to 500,000 acres, or 781 square miles, before the end of the president’s term in January. “This effort is part of President Obama’s commitment to work with tribal leaders to restore tribal homelands,” Larry Roberts, an acting assistant secretary for the Interior Department who oversees the Bureau of Indian Affairs, said in a statement Thursday. Armijo said he has not yet met with the Bureau of Indian Affairs to discuss a land-into-trust application. His ancestors migrated across the 100-square-mile expanse of land situated at the borders of two other nearby pueblos’

The regional employment gauge fell last month to 46.1 from May’s tepid 51.4. “While the region’s manufacturing sector has lost jobs over the last several months, the overall regional economy continues to add jobs but at a pace of roughly half that of this time last year,” Goss said.

reservations and 10 miles west of Armijo’s reservation. The ranch is nearly equal in size to the Santa Ana Pueblo’s present-day reservation, which is home to a village dating back centuries and several tribal enterprises, including a luxury resort and a casino along one of the state’s busiest highways. There are no plans for any economic development on what has long been considered one of New Mexico’s legacy ranches, Armijo said. Instead, the pueblo plans to maintain the tract’s vast open spaces, use parts of it for ceremonies, and develop a wildlife management plan. “We hold close ties to this area,” said Glenn Tenorio, a war chief for the pueblo who also works in its water resources department. “We are going to hold and keep the land as pristine as it is.”


Flour recall expanded after E. coli outbreak THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MINNEAPOLIS – General Mills is expanding its recall of certain types of flour in response to an ongoing outbreak of illnesses related to a strain of E. coli bacteria. The Minneapolis-based company on June 1 voluntarily recalled 10 million pounds of its Gold Medal, Signature Kitchens and Wondra flour that federal health officials say was the likely source of dozens of illnesses in 20 states. The flour is largely produced at the company’s Kansas City, Missouri, plant. The company’s announcement Friday expands the recall to include flour made earlier in the fall that might still be in consumers’ pantries. The company said in a statement that the expanded recall was due to a newly reported illness that appears to come from consuming raw dough or batter linked to the flour produced last fall.
