For the past three years, Indigo has taken care of Bob Lucas – serving as his eyes, keeping him safe. Now it’s Lucas’ turn to care for the big yellow Labrador retriever. Six months ago, Lucas and his wife, Georgia, of Hutchinson, began noticing the guide dog was limping slightly. They had hoped it was something that would go away. Instead, in recent weeks it has gotten worse. Indigo’s veterinarian has recommended surgery for a damaged ACL around the knee of the back left leg.

Justices deny Reno DA’s motion in Vonachen case BY THE NEWS STAFF

The Kansas Supreme Court on Monday denied Reno County District Attorney Keith Schroeder’s request for a temporary stay or injunction that would bar plans for a new mental evaluation for Samuel Vonachen. Vonachen is the Hutchinson teen convicted in August in the deaths of

his mother and sister as a result of a fire at the family home. He is awaiting sentencing. Schroeder lodged legal action before the Supreme Court against Reno County District Judge Trish Rose and public defender Sarah McKinnon in September. He contends Vonachen should be held in Reno County Correctional Facility – not

Kan. collected $45M less than expected in Sept. BY JONATHAN SHORMAN The Topeka Capital-Journal

TOPEKA – Kansas collected nearly $45 million less in taxes in September than expected, providing a major blow to state finances and scrambling the budget. State government now faces a shortfall greater than $60 million, just three months – or one quarter – into the fiscal year. Barring a dramatic turnaround, lawmakers and Gov. Sam Brownback will confront a bleak financial situation when the Legislature returns in January. Senate President Susan Wagle, R-Wichita, argued Brownback is required by law to make cuts himself because state finances are in the red. The governor’s office said the administration is not planning to make allotments. The figures are sure to provide ammunition to campaigns ahead of the November general election just weeks away. Democrats and moderate Republicans have made the budget and taxes a prominent issue. Month after month, with only a few exceptions, the revenue reports have disappointed. Sometimes the shortfall is small – $10.5 million in August. In other months, the numbers are staggering: May fell $76 million below expectations. On Tuesday, a working group assembled by Brownback to examine why estimates are so frequently off will present its findings and recommendations. Individual income tax collections were off by about $14 million, or 6 percent. The Kansas Department of Revenue cited weaker than expected quarterly payments related to capital gains and the stock market in explaining the figures. Corporate income taxes came in short by $17 million, or 21 percent. Retail sales tax collections fell short by $9 million, or about 5 percent. The approximately $45 million monthly shortfall represents a miss of about 8 percent. So far during the fiscal year, which began in July, Kansas has collected $69 million less in taxes than projected. “The significant contributors to less-than-expected September receipts were individual estimated payments related to capital gains and the stock market; a continued regional trend of low corporate tax receipts and sales tax receipts,” Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan said in a statement. “Withholding tax receipts, which are an

indicator of jobs and income, continues to perform above the previous year.” Even before the September figures, Kansas faced a budget shortfall. The state began the fiscal year in July with an anticipated positive ending balance of only $5 million that was quickly wiped away by poor July and August tax collections. Though the state now faces a $60 million budget hole at least, continued monthly revenue shortfalls could realistically push the figure past $100 million. A twice-yearly revenue forecast will also be released in November, and that projection could send the figure even higher. “Sam Brownback’s continued refusal to truthfully acknowledge and address the failures of his economic policies not only threatens the future of our state, but insults our intelligence,” Senate Minority Leader Anthony Hensley, D-Topeka, said in a statement. “Kansas voters have the power to put an end to the ongoing Brownback budget crisis when they cast their ballots in November.” State budget director Shawn Sullivan asked agencies in August to provide budget scenarios featuring a 5 percent cut. Last week, he said Brownback’s budget proposal in January wouldn’t include across-the-board cuts, but acknowledged the current budget will have to be adjusted. Wagle, citing a state law, said Brownback needs to make cuts to eliminate the budget shortfall. Hensley has also previously said Brownback should act before the legislative session. “I served in the Kansas Senate when Kathleen Sebelius was governor and Mark Parkinson was governor and both of them cut across the board when we had a shortfall,” Wagle said. “Clearly, our statutes require that when there is a shortfall in revenues and when the budget is in the red, the governor is supposed to allot.”

the Reno County Youth Services Detention Facility – pending sentencing. The Supreme Court denied Schroeder’s bid to block the mental examination. Schroeder had claimed the pre-sentence mental examination/evaluation report before sentencing was “needless.” Rose had ordered that Vonachen continue to be

housed at the Reno County juvenile detention center, rather than being moved to the county jail, pending sentencing. Then, during a hearing on a subsequent state motion to have him moved to the jail, Rose ordered that Vonachen be sent to Larned State Hospital for a mental evaluation before he is sentenced in the case. Last week, Schroeder

said in a filing with the Supreme Court, he had learned from a staff member at Reno County Youth Services Detention Facility that Vonachen said he had met with his attorney and learned he would not be transferred to Larned State Hospital for evaluation, but rather an evaluation would be completed while he remains in the juvenile facility

in Hutchinson. Schroeder said he had received no motions, orders or notices pertaining to that development. He also asserted to the high court that the law requires a defendant convicted of a felony to be committed to a state security hospital or other suitable local mental health facility for the examination or evaluation.

US bees added to endangered species list A yellow-faced bee is shown in Hawaii. Federal authorities added seven yellow-faced bee species, Hawaii’s only native bees, for protection under the Endangered Species Act on Friday, a first for any bees in the United States.

BY AMY B. WANG The Washington Post

The bees are dying. For the first time in the United States, bees have been placed on the endangered species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Friday determined that seven species of yellow-faced bees, all native to Hawaii, should be protected under the Endangered Species Act. All seven species belong to the Hylaeus genus of bees. Together, the waspish looking bees are more commonly known as “yellow-faced” or “masked” for their yellow-to-white facial markings. These species are responsible for pollinating some of Hawaii’s indigenous plant species, many of which are threatened themselves. Karl Magnacca, a Hawaiibased entomologist, told The Associated Press that efforts to have the bees federally protected took nearly a decade. “It’s good to see it finally come to fruition,” he told the AP, adding that yell0wfaced bees tend to favor the more dominant trees and shrubs in Hawaii, which helps “maintain the structure of the whole forest.” Magnacca did much of the initial research on the bees in support of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, a nonprofit that aims to protect pollinators and other invertebrates. (The group says it takes its name from the Xerces Blue butterfly, “the first butterfly known to go extinct in North America as a result of human activities.”) For years, the Oregonbased group had pushed for yellow-faced bees to be recognized and protected. In 2009, the Xerces Society first submitted petitions to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the group celebrated news of the federal agency’s ruling on Friday – even as representatives noted there could have been more done to protect the insects. The endangered species designation “is excellent news for these bees, but there is much work that

needs to be done to ensure that Hawaii’s bees thrive,” Xerces Society spokesman Matthew Shepherd wrote in a statement on the group’s website. “[Yellow-faced bees] are often found in small patches of habitat hemmed in by agricultural land or developments. Unfortunately, the [Fish and Wildlife Service] has not designated any ‘critical habitat,’ areas of land of particular importance for the endangered bees.” According to the federal agency, yellow-faced bees have been threatened by non-native bees and other invasive animal species, as well as by human development. Though there is no evidence yet, researchers noted, too, that yellow-faced bees could be compromised by diseases transmitted by non-native insects. “The small number of remaining [yellow-faced bee] populations limits this species’ ability to adapt to environmental changes,” the agency wrote in its Sept. 30 final ruling. “The effects of climate change are likely to further exacerbate these threats.” Magnacca told the AP there are a lot more rare insects that deserve protection. “It may not

honeybees, since their work in pollinating crops makes them economically valuable to humans. However, in a research paper published in the journal Nature Communications last summer, scientists argued that wild bees may deserve just as much attention, even if fewer wild species are responsible for crop pollination. “There’s more than just economic reasons to protect nature and the species in it,” Taylor Ricketts, a co-author of the paper and director of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at the University of Vermont, told The Post last June. Wild bees are important to the larger ecosystem, likely integral to maintaining the habitat for other species that indirectly affect humans, Ricketts said. The designation of these seven bees as endangered species is a start, conservationists say. In the same ruling, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also designated the band-rumped storm petrel, the orangeblack Hawaiian damselfly and the anchialine pool shrimp as endangered species. The designations take effect Oct. 31.

necessarily be appropriate to list them as endangered, but we have this huge diversity that we need to work on and protect here in Hawaii,” he said. “There’s a huge amount of work that needs to be done.” The designation is considered a victory for conservationists and echoes a broader effort, made in recent years, to recognize the contributions and importance of bees. That effort may be paying off: Last May, the White House released its National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honeybees and Other Pollinators in a bid to protect pollinators around the country. “I have to say that it is mighty darn lovely having the White House acknowledge the indigenous, unpaid and invisible workforce that somehow has managed to sustain all terrestrial life without health-care subsidies, or a single COLA, for that past 250 million years,” Sam Droege, a U.S. Geological Survey wildlife biologist and one of the country’s foremost experts on native bee identification, told The Washington Post last May.

Lawmakers fear KanCare backlog will grow again BY JONATHAN SHORMAN Topeka Capital-Journal

Lawmakers fear a backlog of KanCare applications the state has spent months reducing will once again balloon. The bipartisan worry belies assurances by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, which oversees the state’s privatized Medicaid program. Members of the Legislature’s KanCare Oversight Committee express concern the agency isn’t prepared. KDHE is on track to clear the backlog in October, according to a state audit released last month, after it told federal officials in June the number of unprocessed applications was far greater than previously disclosed. Internal auditing documents suggest the backlog undercounting may have continued undiscovered if not for inquiries from the federal government. Interview notes by auditing staff, obtained by The Topeka Capital-Journal through a records request, show one of the state’s KanCare contractors told auditors that questions from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services led to the discovery of the low-ball figures. As the agency seeks to clear the last of the backlog, it faces questions over whether it can prevent the problem from reemerging. “I’m just worried that we’re going to be back in the same trouble come January and that really bothers me,” said Rep. Dan Hawkins, a Wichita Republican who chairs the KanCare Oversight Committee. The KanCare backlog first developed in 2015, spurred by problems with a new electronic eligibility system called KEES. By spring, KDHE indicated it was reducing the number of unprocessed applications.

Kansas Highway Patrol. The accident occurred about 10:44 a.m. Monday. The driver of the car, Frank T. Haas, 55, of Hutchinson, wasn’t injured, the report said. Haas was driving north on Ridge Road approaching U.S. 50, while the Freightliner was traveling west on U.S.

Interfaith Housing celebrates 25 years of service BY ASHLEY BOOKER The Hutchinson News

A group of around 250 people helped celebrate Interfaith Housing Services’ 25 years of service to not only individuals, but entire communities across Kansas. While it was a celebration of the nonprofit organization and those it’s influenced, speakers made sure to recognize the people who made it possible: the donors, volunteers, staff, and current and founding board members. Without them, and a mission guided through standing strong to Christian principles, it was noted that the organization wouldn’t have made such a long-term impact on the lives of others. Former Interfaith Housing Services President John Scott was the keynote speaker and said he’d been overwhelmed with recent proclamations and awards in his name, and countless cards and phone calls thanking him for his service. “It’s overwhelming,” he said, his voice wavering. “It’s very humbling for me. After 25 years all of this is happening, and 25 years ago all I wanted was just a job, but God had other plans. Instead of a job, He gave me a mission.” Scott said he felt he shouldn’t be recognized for all that Interfaith has done.

Attendees enjoy a meal provided at the Interfaith Housing Services 25th Anniversary Celebration on Monday. “I’ve just been lucky,” he said. “I’ve been in a place where people have come together for a common vision, for a common cause, and done great things together.” While many things were shared about the organization’s past, Mike Smith, board chair and co-interim CEO, closed the gathering with a few words about the future. “Thank you again for remembering us and our work in the community,” he said to the crowd. “Together we will continue to make a difference by improving all of our lives

by improving the lives of the people we serve.” In looking towards it future, Smith announced the expansion of what they call Santa Fe Two in Dodge City, which will continue low-income housing in Ford County. He said Interfaith will also continue to collaborate with the city of Hutchinson, Hutchinson Community Foundation and United Way of Reno County to improve and refurbish the SW Bricktown neighborhood. He also announced that Interfaith recently accepted a donation of

the former St. Elizabeth Hospital. While the details aren’t yet finalized, Smith noted that in the long run, people in the room may have the opportunity to live in the room they were born. Scott said in 1991 no one could have imagined what IHS would become in 25 years, or the kind of impact it would have on not only this community, but the state as a whole. For that, he said he was grateful. “May God richly bless IHS and each one of you,” he said in closing.

Annie Lane other, e.g., yin and yang, night and day, peanut butter and jelly. But your pairing sounds more like Pop Rocks and soda – explosive and causing much bellyaching. My question for you is: Why the rush into dating? I suggest you put that on old until your divorce is finalized. Once you’ve turned the last page in that painful chapter of your life, you can attempt to start fresh. You are used to being in a relationship and may compulsively be seeking a woman to fill that role. Don’t be in such a rush to partner up that you settle for someone and find yourself wanting to excuse away major issues. Dear Annie: I’m a 14-year-old boy from New Jersey. I just started high school and am involved in clubs and on the junior varsity football team. I’m

not a straight-A student, but I make pretty good grades, mostly B’s and some A’s. My parents got divorced when I was really little; I barely remember it. Both of them have since remarried. I live with my mom and stepdad most of the time (spending some weekends with my dad). I have an elder brother, who is 17, and a little brother, who is 4. My elder brother has had all sorts of problems since he was about 12 or 13. He has anger issues and shows our parents no respect, even cursing them out sometimes. He has slacked off in school and done things like faking signatures on failing tests he was supposed to take home to show our mom. I know there have been plenty of other incidents that my family has tried to keep secret from me to protect me. Last year, they sent him to a program on a ranch for three months. It was kind of like a school/camp/ rehab for troubled teens. He was responsible for taking care of animals there, and it seemed to help him a lot. But less than a month after he got back, he started going

back to his old bad ways again. My parents are always so busy dealing with my brother’s issues that I feel as if th ey barely even notice me. I sometimes feel as if I’m being punished for being the good kid. What can I do to make them take more notice of me? – Middle Child Dear Middle: It’s not easy being golden. You’re a great blessing in your parents’ lives, and there’s no doubt in my mind that they know it, but they’re focusing their attention on the ongoing crises with your elder brother. Tell them how you feel. It might not exactly be fair that you have to remind them you need attention, too, but it’s fortunate for your family to have someone as mature and patient as you on the team.

Name brand or generic, bleach is bleach Dear Heloise: Is there any difference in strength of name-brand bleach and a generic brand? And does the strength lessen over time? – Joyce C., via email Dear Joyce: Bleach is bleach. It can be confusing, because today it’s more common to buy concentrated bleach. Concentrated bleach used to be 5.25 to 6 percent sodium hypochlorite solution, but now it is 8.25 percent. When reading the bottle, it really doesn’t make a difference whether it’s name brand or generic, because you should buy based on the percentage for your household needs, with the higher percentage better for sanitizing and disinfecting. You will need to familiarize yourself with how to dilute the bleach, depending on what you are cleaning, with adjustments being made for strength. Once opened, bleach will last several months without losing much strength. It

Hints from Heloise

Heloise does lose strength over time, but it still will be powerful enough to use. How fast it loses strength depends on where it is stored, temperature, etc., but it should be fine up to five months after opening. – Heloise Dear Heloise: I read a hint where a person put cardboard on the bottom of her fabric grocery bags. My mother and I use old car license plates. We put duct tape around the plate so it does not cut through the fabric. It’s a great way to recycle car plates. Friends who do not use fabric bags are happy to give us theirs. They are sturdy, washable and last forever. – Adele H., Plymouth, Ind.

Dear Adele: This certainly would work; however, some states require you to return the plates so they cannot be used by another person. A lot of people keep these plates as a collector’s item, though, so just don’t lose them! – Heloise Dear Heloise: I like to use erasable pens when entering notes in my pocket calendar, when making shopping lists and especially when doing crossword puzzles. Since I am prone to mistakes, the eraser on the pen gets loaded with smeary ink and makes a mess of my work. I have found that a quickand-easy way to clean up the eraser is to lightly brush it with an emery board. The old ink is easily “filed” off, and the eraser looks and works like new. – Jane A., Beavercreek, Ohio Dear Heloise: When putting your water or any drink bottle in the car in the cup holder, in order for the condensation to not make a puddle, I utilize a small,



tight sock. Just put your bottle in any sock, and lo and behold, you get no condensation anywhere. This way, too, you don’t have to throw away any old or tight socks. – Judy N., Lake Worth, Fla.

Prince probe focuses on doctors, black market BY MICHAEL TARM AND AMY FORLITI Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS – More than five months after Prince’s fatal drug overdose, investigators have narrowed their focus to two main questions: whether doctors illegally prescribed opioids meant for the pop star and whether the fentanyl that killed him came from a black-market source, a law enforcement official said. Those lines of inquiry raise the prospect that a doctor or doctors could be charged with writing unlawful prescriptions and that a separate suspect or set of suspects with ties to narcotics trafficking could be charged with supplying the fatal dose. Prince was 57 when he was found April 21 in an elevator at his suburban Minneapolis studio and estate. Authorities have revealed little publicly about their investigation, saying only that the probe is ongoing. The law enforcement official who described the investigation has knowledge of the inquiry but spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to comment on the record. The person declined to provide any

additional details. Investigations of fatal overdoses can be lengthy and complex, especially when drug traffickers or other underworld figures are involved. Ryan Pacyga, a Minneapolis criminal defense attorney who is not connected to the Prince case, said law enforcement is not going to rush unless there is a risk to the public or immediate danger to others. In typical drug cases, investigators will subpoena documents including computer files, emails and financial records. When looking at where the fentanyl came from, they will “follow the money” and look at orders, shipments and the bank accounts or credit cards that made payments, Pacyga said. Prince had a reputation for clean living, and some friends said they never saw any sign of drug use. The death of one of the most influential musicians of the modern era has drawn public attention to a startling increase in fentanyl overdoses. Most of the deaths are linked not to prescriptions but to illicitly made fentanyl pills or fentanyl that has been mixed with and sold as heroin, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

POOR BIDDING REWARDED Both vulnerable, South deals. NORTH ♠A532 ♥J8 ♦984 ♣AK96 WEST ♠8 ♥ A 10 6 3 ♦J765 ♣8532

South had a chance. The opening lead went to the 10 and queen. As the cards lie, the jack of clubs is falling and South has four club tricks, but declarer didn’t know that. He ran off all of his trumps, leaving this position with one trump remaining:

EAST ♠96 ♥K942 ♦ Q 10 3 2 ♣ J 10 7 SOUTH ♠ K Q J 10 7 4 ♥Q75 ♦ AK ♣Q4

The bidding: SOUTH WEST NORTH EAST 1♠ Pass 3NT* Pass 4NT Pass 5♥ Pass 6♠ All pass *12-14 points, four-card spade support

Opening lead: Five of ♣ It’s a good idea to never bid Blackwood with a side suit that has two fast losers, and this deal is an example of why. South should have contented himself with a fourdiamond cue bid and then passed four spades when his partner couldn’t cue bid four hearts. The defense could have taken the first two heart tricks, but it was reasonable for West to lead a club and

NORTH ♠ Void ♥J ♦984 ♣AK9 WEST ♠ Void ♥ A 10 ♦J7 ♣?xx

EAST ♠ Void ♥K9 ♦ Q 10 3 ♣?x SOUTH ♠7 ♥Q75 ♦ AK ♣4

On the last trump, West shed a diamond, dummy a heart, and East the nine of hearts. Had East discarded the king of hearts, instead, this column might have had a different hero. South exited with a low heart to East’s king and East exited with a diamond. South won and cashed his other diamond, and West could not defend the position. West had to keep the ace of hearts so he discarded a low club. It no longer mattered who held the jack of clubs. South had four club tricks and his slam.

We can’t ignore trade issue in presidential race T

his presidential election is creating one of the fiercest political battles against American trade in recent history, and that’s bad news for Kansas farmers. The recent presidential debate should have brought a collective chill across Kansas. Donald Trump lambasted the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, as “the single worst trade agreement ever approved in this country.” This came the same week that wheat traders from Mexico visited Great Bend to see the sources of the 2.4 million metric tons of wheat that country imported from the U.S. last year. Mexico is second only to Japan in American wheat exports. Kansas also has played host to visitors from Cuba, who want to lift embargoes and open agricultural trade. Both Trump and Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton said they would fight the TransPacific Partnership, or TPP, a trade agreement favored by Kansas farmers. The TPP would help farmers sell beef and grain to Pacific Rim countries, lowering tariffs and cutting down on unethical global labor practices. Clinton appeared to do an about-face on the TPP, which she strongly supported as Secretary of State. The agreement looked headed for passage by Congress and signed by President Obama before the end of his term. But the recent anti-trade rhetoric has looked to undo years of work – to the detriment of Kansas agriculture. Trump seeks to undo decades of Republican support for free trade. Clinton seems to surrender years of support in order to win over supporters of Bernie Sanders, who also spouted

anti-trade positions. Clinton offered a caveat at last week’s debate. “We are 5 percent of the world’s population; we have to trade with the other 95 percent,” she said. “And we need to have smart, fair trade deals.” Trump made no such concession. Meanwhile, Trump’s signature platform is the costly wall on our borders to block Mexico – that country buying all of that wheat. Trump also vowed to push for an economic policy that gives the richest people big tax breaks, which he promises will give them incentive to create jobs. We’ve seen how well that experiment works in Kansas. It doesn’t. Polls show Trump with a hefty lead among Kansans – ahead of Clinton by double digits in some counts. With only six electoral votes, Kansas isn’t likely to sway an election one way or another. Since this state hasn’t gone with a Democrat since Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Kansas is already being called by many observers as a victory for Trump. It shouldn’t be a given. Kansas voters need to think hard about who they are supporting for president and listen closely to the issues in the coming month before Election Day, including global trade. The decision shouldn’t be about being Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative. Both candidates have shown disregard for what those parties have stood for in the past. Here in farm country, we should be asking which candidate is best for Kansas and its agricultural economy. Don’t let party labels cause us to vote against our own best interests.

‘Fool me once … ’ Those following the presidential race may have noticed a reprise of the all-too-familiar old refrain calling for the nation to venture down economist Arthur Laffer’s road to prosperity yet again. It seems the path to the economic salvation of America being touted is eerily familiar to the “roadmap” Kansas has been following. All that is needed, it goes, are tax cuts sufficient enough to spur business growth and, like magic, a much-needed boost to the economy will follow. Six years into just such a radical curtailment of income tax revenues, our state is facing the possibility of a financial meltdown. The projected “shot of adrenalin” that it was hoped would stimulate the economy failed to materialize, and the consequences of this experiment in “trickle-down economics” are becoming painfully clear. Lest there be any confusion as to a shared vision, in his quest to take up residency in the Oval Office, candidate Donald Trump has called on both our Gov. Sam Brownback and Secretary of State Kris Kobach to join his team of advisers. There is no doubting the importance of the outcome in the presidential election to the nation. There is also little doubt as to who will prevail in winning the majority of votes for the office in the Sunflower State. Taking into consideration past

Kathie Moore Email: klm news45@ results, the flood of polling data and the consensus of pundits, the final outcome of that contest will be determined by a smattering of toss-up states. So it would appear the die is cast: No surprises, no doubts. Then an old cautionary proverb came to mind. As with most bits of folk wisdom passed down for generations, the origin is unclear, but the sentiment is forthright and rings as true today as it has through the years. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” So is there just that faint possibility that, having seen the light, the voters of Kansas might shock the nation, sending the urgent warning, “Turn back! There’s danger ahead”? OK, that’s probably not going to happen. But to anyone tempted to sit out this election, I suggest you look back to the primary election in August. Voters who were determined to have a say, to bring about change, had a huge unanticipated impact. Challenged incumbents on both the state and federal level were summarily given notice that their services

would no longer be required. As reflected in many opinion polls, the public has become disheartened and hungry for change. The tens of thousands of votes needed to move Kansas from the red to the blue column in the presidential contest are a long shot indeed, but on the state and local level a mere handful have been known to bring about surprising results. There is much at stake for the future of Kansas. Finding the way back to stability will present a challenge for those we charge with making critical choices. Recent decisions in the ongoing battle over Kansas’ onerous voter registration laws have cleared the way for thousands of Kansans previously denied the right to freely participate in the process. Those who have not yet registered have until Oct. 18 to complete their registration. Requests for advance voting by mail can be made starting Oct. 19, with on-site advance voting scheduled to begin Oct. 20. The official Election Day will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Questions should be directed to the county clerk in the new annex at the southeast corner of First and Adams. Wouldn’t it be foolish to miss this opportunity to make a difference?

Pick Schlickau again for Reno

Schlickau in November. SANDRA COLEMAN Haven

We love the enthusiasm of youth but know the value of experience. James Schlickau has both. If you have had the opportunity to visit with him one-on-one about fiscal issues, you will know the deep, quiet confidence he inspires. Although he has actively promoted economic growth policies, he always demonstrates sensitivity to the taxpayer burden. In dealing with zoning ordinances, James was highly receptive to the people directly affected, protecting the agricultural community from impractical urban encroachment. He uses discretion in working with administrators and is down-to-earth and sensible when working with the public. Decisive, ethical and highly organized, James provides valuable efficiency and continuity to the board. He ran no negative ads against his opponent, a testament to his professionalism. Re-elect Commissioner James

Vote for Terrell on Nov. 8 I’m writing in support of Patsy Terrell for the state legislature. Patsy will work for strong public schools for our children, advocate for a tax policy that is fair and responsible for all, fight for transparency in state government, invest in our infrastructure including a renewed commitment to our roads and highways, and allow our judges to interpret the law without prejudice. The people of Reno County and the state spoke loudly with their vote last August for candidates who will part ways with the governor’s agenda. Electing Patsy to the legislature will put a wonderful exclamation point on the movement for a Kansas that works for all of us, not just a few. Please support the anti-Brownback candidate on Nov. 8 and vote for Patsy Terrell. STEVE SNOOK Hutchinson







VP debate should include issues of faith In every election cycle since Jimmy Carter introduced “born again” into the political lexicon, a politician’s faith has been an object of curiosity and contention. At an appearance in Iowa in January, Hillary Clinton responded to a question about her faith, saying she is a Christian and a Methodist and that to her “the most important commandment is to love the Lord with all your might and to love your neighbor as yourself.” She is correct, but the challenge comes in how that commandment and Scripture are applied in the political arena. The same Scripture in which Hillary Clinton says she believes also teaches that marriage is between a man and a woman and that human life begins at conception. Hillary Clinton is pro-choice and favors same-sex marriage and the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funds being used for abortion. This brings us to tonight’s debate between the two candidates for vice president. Gov. Mike Pence, R-Ind., is a pro-life evangelical Christian who believes in traditional marriage. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., is a Roman Catholic who takes the opposite view. Most evangelicals believe “All Scripture is Godbreathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness ...” (2 Timothy 3:16). Many Roman Catholics accept the authority of Scripture, but also place tradition

Cal Thomas Email: tcaedi tors@tribpub. com and the teachings of the pope on par with it. Why does this matter? If candidates for high office claim inspiration, even instruction, from an Authority higher than themselves, they should be asked about it. If they deviate from their faith’s teachings, they should be required to explain. Tim Kaine often refers to his Catholic faith and to what he calls “a turning point in my life,” which came in 1980 while on a “mission trip” to Honduras. Left out of his narrative is the liberation theology taught by radical Catholic priests in the region at the time, a theology which closely tracked with Marxists committed to the violent overthrow of Latin American governments. We have been down this road before with Catholic politicians, including Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the late Gov. Mario Cuomo, all of whom have taken political positions diametrically opposed to Catholic teaching. About his departure from Catholic instruction and statements from the current and previous popes, especially on social issues, Kaine has said: “I think it’s going to change. … Who am I to challenge God for the beautiful diversity of the human family? I think we’re supposed to celebrate it, not challenge it.” That attitude

might legitimize a multitude of sins. Writing about church teachings on same-sex marriage, Maureen Ferguson of The Catholic Association says, “If Sen. Kaine wants to go beyond politics to opine on the theology of the Catholic Church, he should at least consult Pope Francis’ most recent exhortation, Amoris Laetitia, in which Francis states, ‘There are absolutely no grounds for considering homosexual unions to be in any way similar or even remotely analogous to God’s plan for marriage and family.’ ” The same can be said of consistent Catholic teaching about human life. In another statement from the Catholic Association, Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie writes: “Senator Kaine’s attempt to cloak his political pandering as theological speculation exposes the Clinton campaign’s profoundly anti-Catholic ideological agenda. Hillary Clinton has previously stated that pro-life people of faith will simply have to change their religious views. … Now her running mate suggests the Church needs to do the same on the issue of marriage and family …” These issues of faith and public policy should be raised during the one vice presidential debate tonight.

To use the service, customers order online at Shoppers can enter orders via computers or smartphones with internet access. At the website, the customer creates a shopping list, selects a pickup time and then places the order. Online shoppers can choose from any of the 40,000 items available instore, including fresh meat and produce. Specially trained Dillons ClickList employees fill the order and store it in temperature-appropriate zones until the customer picks it up in a designated parking space on the east side of the store. While the website is now live for Hutchinson, order pickups will not begin until Thursday. The company remodeled storage space within the store to house the services, including designated refrigerators and freezers, and technology to support the program, said Sheila Lowrie, Kroger community and public relations manager. Lowrie declined to say how much Kroger invested in bringing the service to Hutchinson. “We also hired dedicated ClickList associates who received extensive training, not only on the tech side, but how to shop for the freshest produce,” Lowrie said. “Customers told us, when someone else is shopping for their groceries, they were most concerned about produce and dairy freshness. That is why the extra training. What we’ve heard from customers is our ClickList associates pick better produce than they typically would buy when shopping.” “One example that comes to mind is that most people don’t know how to select a ripe pineapple,” she said. “With the training we give our associates, they have that knowledge. If you’re buying an avocado, depending on whether you’re slicing it or making guacamole, they can select the right one.” When placing an order, the customer must select a one-hour window on the designated date for pickup – for example, 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday. Then, on the day of pickup, they should

Biles and McCarville will visit Central Christian instead of Trinity. Other members of the high court and local judges are fanning out to speak to students at some other schools in Reno County today.

The justices are not speaking on the USD 308 campus. At Trinity, Principal Joe Hammersmith said he set up the visit but realized afterward that Biles was up for retention this year. He notified the court Friday of the decision to opt out of a judicial visit, according to a spokeswoman for the court. “The decision that was made was a local decision,” said Amy Pavlacka, director of communications for the Catholic Diocese of Wichita.

ClickList is now being offered to customers at the Dillons Marketplace store. The area where people go to pick up the groceries is on the northeast side of the grocery store, near the pharmacy drivethrough.

MORE INFORMATION A few other things for customers to know: Coupons electronically linked to a customer’s loyalty card will automatically redeem to reduce the cost of the order. Paper coupons will be deducted at time of pickup. Online prices reflect the price in-store on the day an order is placed. Some prices may change between placement of the order and pick up. The receipt will show the price charged. Customers should bring any concern about a specific price to the associate’s attention. Pharmacy prescriptions are not included in the program. When you place your order online, you can indicate whether you would like to allow substitutions, in case an item ordered is out of stock. For items not available, store associates will offer a substitution to the customer, which the customer may accept or decline. If the out-of-stock item is available in a larger quantity, the order will be upgraded to the larger item, or, if the same brand and item is available in a different package (for example, boxed sugar instead of bagged sugar), that item will be substituted. If the brand is not available, the same type of item from a different brand may be substituted. O




arrive at the store any time during that window. Customers arriving at the store for pickup should then call a number posted at several designed ClickList parking spaces outside the store to notify store staff they are waiting. “If someone doesn’t have a cellphone they can make arrangements inside the store, though our teams are observant and usually aware when a customer pulls into the lane,” Lowrie said. After the customer pays for the groceries while remaining in their car – payment must be either by debit or credit card; Dillons does not accept government assistance, cash or checks

for ClickList – the worker will load up the groceries in the car. There is a $4.95 service charge on every ClickList order, although, as an introductory offer, Dillons will waive the service charge on each customer’s first three orders. If not picked up at the scheduled time, store employees will give the customer a reminder call, Lowrie said. If pickup cannot then be rescheduled rather promptly, the store will restock the groceries in the store and the customer will have to redo the order. The store will not charge a restocking fee on the cancelled order, Lowrie said. There is no limit on the


Those planning to watch the Kansas Supreme Court in action Tuesday night at Hutchinson Community College’s Stringer Fine Arts Center, 600 E. 11th Ave., are advised to arrive early and leave big bags and electronics at home. There will be security screening at Stringer. The court will start its session at 6:30 p.m., but the audience is advised to arrive before 6 p.m. Court staff gave these tips for those planning to witness the first-ever Supreme Court proceedings in Hutchinson. To get through security screening as quickly as possible: Do not bring large bags, large purses, backpacks, computer cases or briefcases. Do not bring knives, pepper spray, firearms or weapons. Do not bring electronic devices like laptop computers, handheld games, personal digital assistants or tablets. If you have to carry a cellphone, it must be turned off or its ringer silenced, and it must be stored out of sight. Do not bring food or drink. Court and college staff will not be responsible for property left outside the auditorium. Also, showing up early is the best way to guarantee a seat in Stringer’s B.J. Warner Recital Hall, which has seating for 422 people. When the Supreme Court had an evening session in Hays, nearly 700 people attended. After the session concludes, the justices will greet the public in an informal reception at Stringer.

size of an order, large or small, though the same service charge will attach. Orders placed before midnight are available for pickup the next day, again, at a time chosen by the customer. “One thing that’s really handy is you can start an order and then continue to add to it,” Lowrie said. A customer can fill the order, log out, and then return later in the day to change it, or even the next day if the order is not scheduled for pickup until the following day. Curbside pickup is available seven days a week, between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. “We’re hearing from our customers they love it for the time saving and convenience,” Lowrie said. “We’re seeing customers who are not only busy parents juggling schedules for kids, but we’re seeing more seniors use it, so they don’t have to walk through the store.” “Maybe it’s someone shopping for an elderly mother on a weekly basis,” she said. “They can order online, pick up the groceries and spend more time with the elderly parents versus spending that time shopping. More business owners are using it, to buy supplies for breakrooms or potluck. They can shop online and send an employee to pick the order up, rather than pay them to shop.” Besides Hutchinson, the service is now available at Dillons Marketplace stores in Wichita, Andover and Derby, as well as in Topeka, Lawrence and at Baker’s in Omaha, Nebraska. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat. Nuss and Luckert were appointed by former Gov. Bill Graves, a Republican. Stegall, the most recent appointee, was named to the court by Gov. Sam Brownback. Kansans for Life wants all but Stegall ousted before the high court considers dismemberment abortion legislation. Also, all four justices under fire this year voted to overturn the death sentences for convicted murderers Reginald and Jonathan Carr, based on procedural factors. The U.S. Supreme Court subsequently ruled the Kansas Supreme Court was wrong in its ruling. The two members of the Kansas Supreme Court who are not on the ballot this fall – Lee Johnson and Eric Rosen – are Sebelius appointees who survived a vote-no campaign in 2014. The margin was close. Johnson and Rosen each received less than 53 percent of the vote.

N. Carolina governor declares emergency ahead of hurricane THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has declared a state of emergency for 66 counties in the central and eastern parts of the state because Hurricane Matthew is on a course that would take it along the East Coast. McCrory told a news conference on Monday that the declaration will immediately help farmers clear their fields of crops already affected by heavy rain over

the last two weeks. Matthew is one of the most powerful Atlantic hurricanes in recent history and briefly reached the top classification, Category 5, becoming the strongest hurricane in the region since Felix in 2007. The hurricane center said the storm appeared to be on track to pass east of Florida through the Bahamas, but it was too soon to predict with certainty whether it would threaten any spot on the U.S. East Coast.

Service dog Indigo sits with his owner, Bob Lucas, on the front porch of their Hutchinson home on Monday. Indigo is in need of surgery to repair cranial cruciate ligament disease in his left hind knee. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with the cost of the surgery.


• From Page A1 The local vet referred Indigo to Kansas State University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. They specialize in caring for dogs, like Indigo, trained through the Kansas Specialty Dog Service. They are estimating the surgery, plus travel expenses and a four-day stay in Manhattan, will cost $5,000. Lucas relies on disability payments and doesn’t have the money for the surgery. A friend has set up an account at www. Lucas, who is legally blind, has grown to trust Indigo to guide him where he needs to go.The two bonded immediately and Indigo has given the outgoing man the freedom he lost because of debilitating macular degeneration. Over the years, there have been daily walks in Carey Park. Lucas and his wife, Georgia, still marvel about the time Indigo saved him from a flooded path. Or the time when a bicyclist was coming upon them just as Lucas began to walk in front of it. Indigo jerked loose and stood in front of Lucas to stop him from moving.

“I never saw him like that before,” Lucas said. The two have become inseparable. “I go to the bathroom and he comes right in,” Lucas said. Now Indigo needs help and Lucas is appreciative of the people who have already donated $510 through GoFundMe. They plan to use that money to set up an appointment at the vet school and have an initial visit. They will have to wait until they have the rest of the money to have the surgery. Indigo will be in Manhattan for four days and Lucas doesn’t want to leave his side. There will be a six- to eight-week

recovery period back in Hutchinson. “Yesterday he was limping real bad,” Lucas said, as his faithful companion sat by his feet with eyes that appeared filled with pain. For now, Lucas tries to ease the pain by offering the dog anti-inflammatory pills and avoiding long walks.

After 2 Series trips, KC has early offseason

CAN THE CUBS DO IT? Joe Maddon’s crew romped to 103 wins, and now the North Side of Chicago is set up for either the biggest party of all time or the most brutal disappointment ever. Nothing in between for

Royals spent the first day pondering how a season so full of promise fell so short



Wrigleyville, really. The pressure won’t rattle Jon Lester and John Lackey – they’ve pitched in these spots. Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and the young hitters must handle hopes and expectations that have been building since the Cubs’ last World Series championship in 1908.


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – For two decades, finishing at .500 would have given the Royals reason to celebrate. Two trips to the World Series changes perspective. The Royals spent the first day after the regular season Monday ruing how a season full of promise went awry. There were devastating injuries, key acquisitions failed to live up to big contracts and an offense predicated on manufacturing runs was too often rendered out-of-order. “We expected to perform much better




and it just didn’t happen,” general manager Dayton Moore said. “It’s sad that it ended the way it did. We obviously wish we were still playing. But we’ve got work to do, as every offseason demands, and we’ll go to work starting tomorrow in Arizona.” Not all is lost. Not by a long shot. The Royals return most of their core from last year’s championship team next year, and are primed for one more run at the postseason. Their window to reach another World Series could close afterward as stars such as Eric Hosmer, Lorenzo Cain and Danny Duffy reach free agency in 2018. “That’s something we discuss constantly,” Moore said. “We won’t be able to sign them all, as you know. That’s a tough question and


Late-season grind poses a volleyball test for team BY KELTON BROOKS The Hutchinson News

Someone connect a heart monitor to the Hutchinson Community College volleyball team. With 10 matches in 11 days against at least five nationally ranked teams and needing to win out in the Jayhawk Conference NOTES to be crowned conference champions, the Blue Dragons’ hearts will either ache or swell with joy. “Everyone we face now becomes critical,” said Hutchinson coach Patrick Hall. “We have to win out in the conference. Our fate is in our hands. I know it’s cliche to say, but we have to take it one match at a time.” “We have to take every team seriously. We can’t just look forward to playing nationally ranked teams. We need to come back to conference games and be just as focused.” The Blue Dragons own the tiebreak against Seward County and have another match against Colby in the last game of the season. The Blue Dragons outlasted Colby in a 3-2 match win to start the season. Hutchinson is currently on a twomatch win streak after dropping its previous four to stiff competition. Despite a 3-0 loss to Indian Hills, the Blue Dragons stayed with the highly ranked team all match long, losing 25-21, 25-19 and 25-18. Playing top-level competition has been beneficial for Hutchinson. The young team has played against bigger teams, allowing it to prepare for a different style of play than it would within the Jayhawk. But Hall believes the team has much more work to do, stating, “The learning process can be very complex.” “Sometimes that application falters, and that has an effect on a young team, and that manifests itself as bad chemistry when, in actuality, players are not performing to their capability,” Hall said. “When you have a lot of youth, they don’t know how to handle ups and downs like an experienced team

Chiefs head into week off reeking from 43-14 drubbing from Pittsburgh Steelers BY DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – In the aftermath of a lopsided loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, in primetime no less, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith acknowledged that “you own this right now, you wear it and it stinks.” The Chiefs will smell for quite a while. Their embarrassing 43-14 loss on Sunday night left them 2-2 through their first four games, and with more questions than answers heading into a week off. Their offense was inept, Don Wright/Associated Press their defense was fileted by Ben Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Cameron Roethlisberger and Co., and even Heyward (97) sacks Kansas City Chiefs their usually solid special teams quarterback Alex Smith (11) Sunday in Pittsburgh. were a stumbling mess.

“You own this right now, you wear it, and it stinks.” Alex Smith, Chiefs quarterback “You’d love to go into it on a better note,” Smith said of the bye, “but who knows? Whether we like it or not, it’s here. We have to use it. Get healthy, regroup and bounce back from this.” Here are the grimy details from the Chiefs’ worst loss under Andy Reid: They lost two turnovers, both of which turned into touchdowns. One was coughed up by suddenly fumble-prone Spencer Ware and the other was an interception on a screen pass flawed from the start. Smith was sacked four times

by a Steelers defense that had just one through the first three games. Dustin Colquitt shanked a punt that gave the Steelers great field position, and Tyreek Hill’s punt return touchdown was wiped out by an illegal blocking penalty by Demetrius Harris. One week after picking off six passes and forcing eight turnovers against the Jets, the Chiefs didn’t force a single turnover against the Steelers. Roethlisberger was 22 of 27 for 300 yards and five scores, and Le’Veon Bell ran for 144 yards in his return from a three-game

It does not put a damper on the season, and it does not set us into panic mode. Do we need to figure it out? Yes we need to figure it out.” The onus on that falls on Reid’s shoulders. Long recognized as an offensive mastermind, Reid has stumbled through most of the first four weeks. The Chiefs needed a frantic comeback to beat the Chargers

Ryder Cup win begs question: Does US still need task force? BY TIM DAHLBERG

European. Three of those wins came when he was teamed with McIlroy, giving Europe a solid foundation heading into the next Ryder Cup and possibly for years after. “I’ve got a partner beside me for the next 20 years,” McIlroy said with a smile, putting his arms on Pieters’ shoulders. “I’m not letting anyone else have him.”

AP Sports Writer

CHASKA, Minn. – Memo to the 11-member U.S. task force organized to break Europe’s near-chokehold on the Ryder Cup: You did well. Now take the next couple years off. The most lopsided win for the American team since 1981 in the bag, there doesn’t seem much need to change the formula that carried the U.S. to a 17-11 win Sunday at Hazeltine National Golf Club. Probably not much need to change the captain, either, after Davis Love III came up a winner in his second time at the helm. But Phil Mickelson is both a tinkerer and a thinker, and he doesn’t figure to leave well enough alone. He’s Mickelson also the most influential member of the task force, and may tweak a few things for the 2018 Ryder Cup in Paris. “For us to go to Europe and try to win the Cup is a whole different feat,” Mickelson said. “That’s going to require a whole different level of play, of solidarity, of fortitude and we are going to have to build on this in two years if we want to try to retain the Cup.” Europe’s dominance dating to 1985 remains impressive: they still claim six of the last eight and eight of the last 11 Ryder Cup wins. Worse yet for the

star Clayton Kershaw is all set to pitch Game 1 at Washington. He’s certainly got the pedigree: Cy Young Awards, ERA titles, 20-win seasons and an MVP. What he doesn’t have is a winning record in the playoffs – 2-6. And in his last six starts in the postseason over the past three years, he’s 1-5 with a 5.45 ERA, plus a high walk and home run rate. Remember, Hall of Famers Randy Johnson, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine had losing career marks in the postseason. But Kershaw could use a couple of wins to round out an otherwise glittering resume.

Here are the story lines that will dominate the offseason, which came far too early for fans in Kansas City.

U.S. captain Davis Love III is surrounded by his players as they pose for a picture during the closing ceremony of the Ryder Cup golf tournament Sunday at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minn. Americans, they haven’t won on foreign soil since capturing the Cup in 1993 at The Belfry in England. And that has Lefty thinking a bit. “The thing about this is that we need to build on this,” Mickelson said. “Otherwise it’s all for naught.” Some other takeaways from the U.S. win: Next U.S. star? When the task force does get back to work, its No. 1 priority should be to find more guys like Patrick Reed. Dubbed “Captain

dream season in his final year – huge numbers, an MVP candidate, a worstto-first turnaround by the Red Sox. His likeness has been cut into the grass at Fenway Park, his legacy is etched into history. What the retiring 40-year-old DH really wants is one more ring – he’s won three with Boston and owns a career .455 batting average and .576 on-base percentage in the World Series. He begins these playoffs against former manager Terry Francona and Cleveland.


WILL MADBUM STAND TALL? When last seen in the postseason, Madison Bumgarner posted a Giant save to win Game 7 in Kansas City. The 6-foot-5 lefty will try to save San Francisco’s season on Wednesday night in the NL wild-card

a sprained hand. More than anything else, the Royals simply need to get to full strength by spring. Starting rotation The Royals struggled all season to find a fifth starter, finally getting left-hander Jason Vargas back from Tommy John surgery in the waning weeks of the regular season. He should be ready to go for spring, but there are still holes in the rotation. Edinson Volquez has a mutual option for next season, though it is hardly a foregone conclusion either side will exercise it. Volquez may want to shoot for a multiyear deal while the Royals may be reticent to pay him $10 million after he went 10-11 with a 5.37 ERA. Duffy, Vargas, Yordano Even more damning about the performance? It came a week after the Eagles, led by former Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson, blitzed past Pittsburgh in a 34-3 rout. “This one we didn’t sustain. We just weren’t able to sustain drives,” Reid said Monday. “We had a couple opportunities in the red zone we didn’t take advantage of. I have to look in the mirror on

America” by his teammates, the 26-year-old Texan went 3-1-1 in the event, capping his performance by staring down McIlroy, Europe’s top player, in the critical opening singles match that delivered some thrilling shots from both players on the front nine. Reed’s gutsy showing in all five matches was exceeded only by his bravado. After Tiger Woods, serving as a vice captain, told Reed he’d likely be held out for one of those sessions, Reed replied, “You’re not sitting me for any matches.” Convinced, Woods

game, on the road vs. the Mets. In 2014, he pitched a shutout at Pittsburgh to win the wild-card game. If he gets to the World Series, watch out – no one can match his 4-0 mark with one save and an 0.25 ERA.

pushed captain Love to use Reed – who went 3-0-1 as a rookie two years ago – and partner Jordan Spieth in Saturday’s final slot. They responded with a third win over the tough European pair of Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose.


WHAT ABOUT THE TRADE-OFFS? In late July 2015, the Royals acquired Johnny Cueto and Ben Zobrist, and the pair helped them win the crown. A lot of big names moved to contenders this year in midseason – Carlos Beltran and Jonathan Lucroy to Texas, Matt Moore (Giants), Aroldis Chapman (Cubs),

Ventura and Ian Kennedy still should give the Royals three solid starters. But they could be in the market again for that fifth arm. “We’re living above our means,” Moore admitted, when asked about taking on another big contract. “This payroll was put together to go deep into the postseason, and I’m accountable for that. It’s not going to look very good on the spreadsheet and that’s not going to look very good when the bill comes due.”

Not your average spectators One way to gauge how much the U.S. win meant: Few people were more emotional about it than Woods and Bubba Watson – and neither hit a shot. Instead, they put their egos and games on hold and served the team as vice captains

Next European star? Thomas Pieters took his first Ryder Cup swings with a stocking cap on his head on Friday morning. It didn’t take him long to get really comfortable. Pieters went 4-1-0 at Hazeltine, the best debut performance ever for a

Andrew Miller (Indians), Mark Melancon (Nationals) and Jay Bruce (Mets). We’ll soon see which trade-deadline guys deliver.


WHO’S HURTIN’? Stephen Strasburg, Carlos Carrasco and Jacob deGrom are among the injured aces as the playoffs begin. Wilson Ramos, Neil Walker and Michael Brantley are out, too. A few others have been banged up, with Daniel Murphy, Eduardo Nunez and Danny Salazar among them. It’s easy to wonder what a team would’ve done with a full roster; this late in the year, as managers often say, it’s not worth worrying about.

playoffs, but they happen – the Blue Jays, as we got to see, don’t take no guff. ANYONE GET SKIPPED? Quite a collection of managers in these playoffs. Some have won the World Series (Bruce Bochy, Francona, John Farrell), others have gotten close (Dusty Baker, Terry Collins). Some have been in the playoffs before (Buck Showalter, Joe Maddon, John Gibbons, Jeff Banister), while Dave Roberts (Dodgers) made it in his first year.


Mark Trumbo


WHO’S NEW? Orioles slugger Mark Trumbo led the majors with 47 home runs and powered into his first postseason. Red Sox outfielders Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. also get to play for the first time on the big stage. Productive newcomers Trea Turner, Nomar Mazara and T.J. Rivera will join them this week.

Fan behavior A record crowd of more than 50,000 packed Hazeltine for all three days of the event, including some fans who shouted vulgar and obscene things at some of the Europeans. One was removed from the course after an exchange with McIlroy. But the players and captain Darren Clarke commended the U.S. team for helping police the crowds and said “99.99 percent” of the fans were exceptional all weekend. McIlroy was asked if the American team should expect similar treatment from European fans in 2018, when the Ryder Cup will be on the line in Paris. “We wouldn’t encourage any sort of retaliation,” McIlroy said. “That’s not who we are. That’s not what we do. There won’t be. And we’ll be making that clear.”



GOT A BEEF? A bat flip by Jose Bautista last October sparked a wild scene in Toronto, and lingering ill will led to him getting punched this season by Texas’ Rougned Odor. Just imagine if they meet again this month. Brawls are rare in the

with injuries, he had a 1.87 ERA with 27 saves. Escobar is a bit trickier. The Royals could pay a $500,000 buyout and give the job to upcoming prospect Raul Mondesi Jr., using the savings to address other issues. “I’m working hard and just waiting for my time,” Mondesi said. “Offseason, I’m going to work. Next year, come focused and concentrate and do my job.”

STARTER OR RELIEVER? Many of the most-scrutinized decisions this month will involve how managers handle their pitching staffs. Use a starter like Cole Hamels on short rest, or maybe in emergency relief ? Push a closer like Kenley Jansen for four outs, or five or six? Four-man rotation or three? With a lot of teams trying to advance farther than they’ve been in years – the Cubs, Indians, Texas and Washington – get ready to ramp up the second-guessing.

and he was one of the only power bats in the lineup. Along with bringing him back, the Royals will be looking for another impact bat in the outfield from a relatively week free-agent class.

Speaking of money The Royals will have to decide whether to exercise a $10 million option on All-Star closer Wade Davis and a $6.5 million option on light-hitting shortstop Alcides Escobar. Davis is a relative easy one. Despite dealing

Those other issues One of the priorities will likely be retaining designated hitter Kendrys Morales, who will be looking for a multiyear deal after hitting .263 with 30 homers and 93 RBIs. The reason he was invaluable was that Kansas City struggled to score runs,

Window closing Hosmer, Cain, Duffy and several others are under club control through next season, but that doesn’t mean Moore will wait for them to hit free agency. There is a good chance he begins the difficult negotiations on long-term deals to retain what they view as their core. “I’m really proud of these players. They’re my kind of guys,” said manager Ned Yost, who will also be back next season. “They play hard and they never quit. That makes it fun.”

that one.” Perhaps the only bright spot against Pittsburgh was the return of Jamaal Charles, who tore the ACL in his right knee in Week 5 last season. But the four-time Pro Bowl running back only carried twice and perhaps was pressed into service earlier than desired because of an injury to Charcandrick West. Charles came out of the

game healthy, but it’s unclear what his workload will be like going forward. “We’ll see. We’ll just play it by ear,” Reid said. “See how he’s feeling and the production and all of those things. We’ve got 12 games here to figure that out.” Reid said the Chiefs would spend Monday digesting the loss, then cut his players loose for the remainder of the bye week.

The NFL has rules about how much they can be in the building during a week off. Still, that doesn’t mean the loss won’t linger with them. “We’re 2-2, so it’s not the end of the world, right? Even though it feels that way,” Reid said. “We have a week off to step back and analyze and try to fix some of the issues.”

“Being a part of the team – didn’t actually hit a golf shot, but to go out there and be with these guys, we are truly a team,” Woods said. “And we have that mindset coming here with our captain and we did it, we accomplished it and we won it together.” “This is the greatest thing I’ve done in golf,” said Watson, who owns two Masters green jackets. “This team was amazing. They took me in their arms and let me be a part of it.” Woods generally kept a low profile, but convinced Love to put Reed and Spieth back on the course for a fourth consecutive match late Saturday. Reed made the decision look smart with seven birdies and an eagle on his own ball to seal the third win over the RoseHenrik duo. Watson used his experience to help golfers like Brandt Snedeker stay sharp in big moments. “He’s the reason why I got my point today,” Snedeker said. “He was in my ear all day.”

ECU discussing band members’ silence THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

GREENVILLE, N.C. – East Carolina athletic director Jeff Compher says his department is working with the university and the school of music after several band members kneeled in protest while others performed the national anthem before last week’s game against Central Florida. Compher said in a statement Monday that there have been “ongoing conversations” between the music and athletic departments

and the university and says he’s “confident that there will be a positive resolution” in the future. Fans booed the protestors after the anthem was completed, and Chancellor Cecil Staton quickly issued a statement affirming the band members’ right to express themselves. Coach Scottie Montgomery, who was in the locker room with his team during the anthem, says he was made aware of the situation and trusts the university to handle it properly.

Injuries show need for backup QBs BY JOHN RABY

AP Sports Writer

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Injuries to starting quarterbacks are creeping up in the Big 12, highlighting the need for backups to be prepared for significant playing time. Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday that the status of FBS total offense leader Patrick Mahomes is day-to-day. Mahomes left last week’s game against Kansas after going down hard on his right (throwing) shoulder and he didn’t return. If Mahomes isn’t ready, junior Nic Shimonek would get his first career start Saturday for Texas Tech (3-1, 1-0 Big 12) at Kansas State (2-2, 0-1). Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield tweaked his right ankle when he was sacked by TCU’s Josh Carraway and fumbled in the second quarter Saturday. Mayfield’s ankle was heavily taped at halftime and he returned to the field. Coach Bob Stoops said Mayfield is “a little bit sore but he’ll be ready to go” when the 20th-ranked Sooners (2-2, 1-0) play Texas (2-2, 0-1) in their annual rivalry game Saturday in Dallas. The injuries are a wakeup call not only for the need to having reserves ready, but for opposing teams to prepare to face them. Just in case, Oklahoma has freshman Austin Kendall, who threw two touchdown passes against Louisiana-Monroe earlier this season. And Shimonek completed 15 of 21 passes with four TDs in the 55-19 win Saturday over Kansas State. He also got extensive work in Texas Tech’s season opener against Stephen

Christopher Jackson/Associated Press

F. Austin. “I was excited to see him get his opportunity,” Kingsbury said. “It was fun for me to get to see him do it out under the lights and I thought he handled himself very well.” Kingsbury said Shimonek “just showed up” at Texas Tech two summers ago as a walk-on transfer from Iowa. He had to work his way up the depth chart, playing behind Mahomes and Davis Webb in 2015. “We could tell he could throw pretty well, we didn’t know what we had on our hands,” Kingsbury said. “What jumped out to me was his work ethic. He made himself the player that he is. I’ve got to give him all the credit.” Kansas State coach Bill Snyder was impressed by Shimonek’s accuracy and confidence. “It didn’t look to me like there was any drop off ” from Mahomes, Snyder said. “Obviously Texas Tech is doing it the right way because that youngster came in and played so very well.”

Teams like Texas, Iowa State and Kansas use their backup quarterbacks regularly. For other teams that don’t, “you’ve got to keep them sharp, give them reps, continue to remind them that they’re one play away,” said West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen. West Virginia got a scare in its season opener when Skyler Howard hurt his ribs against Missouri and sat out a few series. Two backups had turnovers during brief stints, and Holgorsen said that was an eye opener for them. “Our backup quarterbacks weren’t ready to go in there,” Holgorsen said. Since that game, “I thought they’ve been more engaged and practiced better to the point to where if that happens again, they’re going to be more ready to play.” Other news from the Big 12 coaches’ teleconference: –No. 13 Baylor (5-0, 2-0) hasn’t allowed a point in the fourth quarter all season, and interim coach Jim Grobe attributes that in part to conditioning and becoming familiar with

the opponents’ offense. But after a nail-biting 45-42 win over Iowa State, Grobe said his team needs to correct its mistakes during a bye week, particularly on defense. “We’ve got to get back to being a better fundamental football team,” Grobe said. –TCU coach Gary Patterson said he doesn’t believe the winner of the Big 12 race will come out unscathed in league play. Baylor, No. 22 West Virginia, Texas Tech and Oklahoma are the remaining teams that haven’t lost in Big 12 games. “There’s a chance, because where everybody has to go to, that the winner of this league may have two losses. It could be one,” Patterson said. “For me there’s a lot of parity in it.” –After Texas got three extra points blocked at Oklahoma State, one of which was returned for two points, Longhorns coach Charlie Strong promised that the problem will be fixed. “We didn’t do a good job of reacting to it,” he said.

Iowa State walk-on leads nation in punt returns BY LUKE MEREDITH AP Sports Writer

AMES, Iowa – Trever Ryen was sitting in a dorm room at Northern Iowa watching Iowa State playing Texas when he got the itch to play football again. Ryen had given up the game for a track scholarship with the Panthers. But when Ryen saw the Cyclones battle the Longhorns under the lights on national television, he realized he was letting his dream of playing at Iowa State pass him by. “In my head I was like, ‘Man. It’d be so sweet playing at Jack Trice (Stadium) at night,’” Ryen said. “After watching that game I was like, ‘You know what? Screw it. I’m going to go try to live the dream.’” The Cyclones (1-4, 0-2 Big 12) are thrilled he did. Ryen, a junior wide receiver, enters this weekend’s game at

Oklahoma State (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) as the nation’s leader in punt return average. He is averaging 22.3 yards on seven returns. Four of them have gone at least 25 yards, with a long of 55. Not bad for a kid who received hardly any attention from Division I schools in high school. Ryen grew up in tiny Ida Grove, Iowa, as a track star, winning the 100 and 200 meter races at the state meet as a senior. Despite also scoring 19 touchdowns that year, Ryen’s only football offers were from FCS and Division II schools. Like many kids looking for a way to help pay for college, Ryen accepted a track scholarship. But Ryen left Northern Iowa after just one season to pursue a football career at Iowa State – despite the fact that there was no promise he’d ever see the field. Iowa State was happy to

take a chance on Ryen as a walk-on, redshirting him in 2014. The following season, Ryen flashed his speed with an eye-opening performance in the spring game. Ryen was arguably the best player on the field that day. “He’s had that (walk-on) mindset ever since,” running back Mike Warren said. “He’s going to come to work every day and bring his best to the table.” By the fall of 2015, Ryen had so impressed the coaching staff that they gave him a scholarship after just two games. Ryen didn’t put up monster numbers last year, catching 18 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown and rushing for 71 yards. But Ryen was one of just eight players nationally who scored on a run, a pass and a punt return. This season, new coach Matt Campbell and the

Cyclones have expanded Ryen’s role. He has helped spark a team that has scored 86 points in its last two games. Ryen was a force against Baylor last week, catching five passes for a team-high 75 yards as Iowa State nearly pulled off the upset. “He works really hard. He wants to get better. I don’t know if he has plans to play at the next level or not, but he works like he wants to,” quarterback Joel Lanning said. The work ethic and a fearlessness on the field – similar to what Ryen showed in chasing his Division I dream – have made him one of the nation’s top return men. “You can’t be scared when you’re back there,” Ryen said. “I have no fear of catching a punt. I always think of the outcome like, ‘If I can a big return here, it can change the game.’”

Bass Pro to acquire rival Cabela’s for $4.5B BY JOSH FUNK AP Business Writer

OMAHA, Neb. – Outdoor gear giant Bass Pro is snapping up rival Cabela’s in a $4.5 billion deal announced Monday. Bass Pro is paying Cabela’s shareholders $65.50 cash per share, a 19 percent premium to Friday’s closing price. The companies valued the deal at $5.5 billion, which includes debt. The deal combines two companies known for their giant destination superstores. It also creates uncertainty about jobs in Cabela’s home state of Nebraska. The combined companies plan to keep some operations in Sidney and Lincoln, Nebraska, but it’s not immediately clear how many jobs might be lost. Cabela’s employs about 2,000 people in the western Nebraska town of Sidney, which has about 7,000 residents. State Sen. Ken Schilz, who represents the area, said the deal is concerning because of the duplication between the two companies’ headquarters that will be eliminated. “We’ll just have to wait and see what Bass Pro does. I’m sure most folks in Sidney are pretty nervous this morning,” Schilz said. Activist investment firm Elliott Management began pushing for significant changes at Cabela’s last fall. Elliott owns 7.4 percent of Cabela’s shares and holds options to buy

A large crowd of people line up as they wait for the grand opening of Bass Pro Shops Outpost on April 15, 2015, in Atlantic City, N.J.

“The story of each of these companies could only have happened in America, made possible by our uniquely American free enterprise system.” Johnny Morris, Bass Pro founder and CEO another 3.8 percent. A sale of the Cabela’s has been a distinct possibility ever since the company announced a review of its strategic options last December, but many in Sidney weren’t ready to believe it could happen. “We’re just trying to absorb it right now,” said Denise Wilkinson, president of the Cheyenne County Chamber of Commerce. “We just never knew what would happen.” Bass Pro founder and CEO Johnny Morris said he hopes to continue growing the Cabela’s brand alongside his privately-held Springfield, Missouri, based chain. “The story of each of

these companies could only have happened in America, made possible by our uniquely American free enterprise system,” Morris said. “We have enormous admiration for Cabela’s, its founders and outfitters, and its loyal base of customers.” Capital One will take over running Cabela’s credit card unit as part of the deal, which is backed by $1.8 billion in financing from Goldman Sachs and another $600 million from private equity fund Pamplona Capital. Cabela’s was founded in 1961 when Dick Cabela started selling fishing flies through the mail from his kitchen table with his wife,

Mary, and brother, Jim. It now has 85 retail stores primarily in the western U.S. and Canada. Bass Pro got its start in 1971 when Morris began selling high-quality fishing tackle in his dad’s liquor store in Springfield, Missouri. Morris developed a following in the Ozarks region – its lakes and rich streams a haven for anglers – created the Bass Pro Shop Catalog in 1974 and opened the first of his now 99 stores in Springfield seven years later. Bass Pro’s stores are mostly in the eastern United States and Canada. Morris also introduced the Bass Tracker fishing boat in 1978 that was designed specifically for fishermen. That led to the creation of the White River Marine Group. Nebraska politicians are encouraging Bass Pro to maintain significant operations in the state after the deal closes sometime in the first half of next year. “I know from personal experience that when you hire Nebraskans you get individuals who are well-educated, have a great work-ethic, and will make your company succeed,” said Gov. Pete Ricketts, the former TD Ameritrade executive. U.S. Rep. Adrian Smith said Cabela’s has long been “a cornerstone of western Nebraska’s economy.” Cabela’s shares climbed $8.19, or 14.9 percent, to $63.12 in afternoon trading Monday.

Stocks fall with drops in real estate, utilities BY BERNARD CONDON AP Business Writer

NEW YORK – Stocks fell in light trading Monday as investors dumped former darlings of the market, real estate companies and utilities. Indexes slumped from the start of trading and remained down throughout the day as investors continue to speculate about when the Federal Reserve is likely to raise interest rates as the economy strengthens. A report earlier in the day showed U.S. manufacturing picking up. Investors hungry for income-producing assets have been buying utilities and real estate companies for their steady dividends. But those stocks become less attractive if interest rates and bond yields climb. On Monday, stocks of real estate companies lost 1.8

percent. Utilities shed 1.4 percent. In an election year when both candidates for U.S. president are talking tough about trade, renewed fears over Britain’s exit from the European Union may have also added to the jitters, said Rob Haworth, senior investment strategist at U.S. Bank Wealth Management. British Prime Minister Theresa May said that the formal process by which Britain leaves the European Union, dubbed “Brexit,” will start by March. That sent the British pound down sharply. May signaled that she would prioritize controls on immigration over access to the European single market. “There was a hope in the market that Brexit didn’t mean Brexit,” said Haworth. But now, “we have a timetable.”

Hutchinson Community College’s Otis Williams outruns Kansas Wesleyan’s Alfred Villalobos for a touchdown in the first quarter Monday at Gowans Stadium.

HCC • From Page B1 The first two times Hutchinson touched the ball, the Blue Dragons scored: first a breakaway punt return by Adrian Cross and then a 40-yard run by Otis Williams on the first offensive play for Hutchinson. Simply, Hutchinson was special Monday night. The Blue Dragons racked up three special teams touchdowns. Cross added his second of the game in 65-yard fashion to start the second quarter and V’onte Williams-McRoy crashed the party with a 53-yard punt return of his own. Cross’ second return broke a school record for the most returns for a touchdown in a game. “It felt good,” Cross said. “Coach’s been telling me all week you’re going to get one in the end zone, so I had to take one there. I was working on my vision. I looked back to the other side, saw a free lane, and it was off to the races.” The Blue Dragons led 45-0 after Cross’ second return. Sophomore Morgan Wheeler received the first carry of his career in the second quarter. Wheeler broke a 14-yard run on his second carry that caused the Blue Dragon sideline to erupt. Wheeler spun off a tackle and bounced off another before he was tripped up. “I was nervous, honestly, but it was fun,” Wheeler said after the game. “It was great. Everyone has been waiting on that run since we put it in, in the second week. I hit the spin and thought I was going to go for it, but I was brought down. I was pumped. Everyone was excited.”

HCC’s Adrian Cross returns a punt for a touchdown against Kansas Wesleyan in the first quarter.

“Coach’s been telling me all week you’re going to get one in the end zone, so I had to take one there.” Adrian Cross Wheeler finished the game with two carries for 18 yards. Sam Corona led the Blue Dragons on the ground with 15 carries for 115 yards and two touchdowns.

THE QUICK HIT KEY STAT: Luke Niemeyer’s 46-yard field goal in the first quarter was the second longest made field goal in school history (47). TURNING POINT: The pregame warm-up. The size differential between the two teams was mind-boggling. The Blue Dragon defensive line lived in the KWU backfield.

Notes • From Page B1 would. We’re still working through that, but it’s improving every week. All the players are definitely confident in their game, which is critical, so we need to keep building on that.” Hutchinson returns home Wednesday for a conference match against Pratt. The Blue Dragons will enter the Missouri State West Plains tournament beginning Friday. Soccer close to clinching The Blue Dragons are on the brink of clinching the Jayhawk West championship, but Garden City is making things as difficult as possible. Hutchinson is 5-0 (15 points) in conference play, with three games remaining. Garden City is right behind at 4-1 (12 points). Hutchinson plays Wednesday at winless Pratt, while Garden City welcomes third-place Barton (3-2) on Wednesday. A Hutch win and Barton win clinches at least a

share of the conference title. Should Garden City win, however, the wait for Hutch to clinch could take a while. Hutchinson’s ensuing three games are non-conference games – two against Hesston and one against Northwest Kansas Tech. The Blue Dragons play Pratt at home on Oct. 18 and play at Garden City on Oct. 21. In Region 6 West play, Hesston is tied with Hutchinson for first with 18 points each. – Brad Hallier Autumn golf The Blue Dragons golf team finished sixth overall after wrapping up its second fall tournament on Sept. 27 at the Missouri Southern Fall Invitational at Shangri-La Country Club. Sophomore Wil Arnold shot a 2-under-par 70 in the third round and finished tied for 13th. Jack Lanham tied for 26th, shooting 8-over 224. Matt Percy and Doug Rios-Ceballos tied for 29th, both shooting 10-over 226. Cole Gritton shot 1-over 73 in the final round, which was second-best

PLAYERS OF THE GAME: How about special teams? Adrian Cross and V’onte Williams-McRoy combined for three punt returns for touchdowns. HE SAID IT: “It’s good to get clicking and I feel like we gained some confidence these two weeks. We knew what these teams were that we just beat, but at the same time, I think it’s timely for our team and where we are right now.” – Hutchinson coach Rion Rhoades, on HCC’s offense the past tow games NEXT: The Dragons (4-2, 1-2) will have a much-needed break after playing two games in three days.

Blue Dragons football back on track After getting off the schneid against Iowa Central, the victory against Kansas Wesleyan JV was a given. The Blue Dragons’ 38 points against Iowa Central had been their highest scoring output of the season. The last time Hutchinson had scored 30-plus was in the first game of the season against Coffeyville (34). Hutchinson rushed for a season-high 417 yards, with Otis Williams and Tre Griffin rushing for over 120 yards (189, 126, respectively). Hutchinson did the same Monday evening, dismantling Kansas Wesleyan in a 64-0 shutout. Hutchinson scored 38 points in the first quarter.
