Soldier keeps longtime tradition of raising flag at Franklin Elementary Veterans Day

Young may serve 24 years


n a breezy morning, Franklin Elementary School students circled around Lt. David Blanken as he stood near the flag pole, across the street from where his grandfather once lived. For many years, Ralph Pray raised the American flag for the school in honor of Veterans Day. Pray served as a U.S. Air Force Crew Chief for many years and in the Korean War through the U.S. Marines. Last year, Pray passed away in November while Blanken was deployed. On Friday, Blanken made sure to continue the tradition. As the U.S. and Kansas flags went up the pole, the

children tilted their heads back and looked up into the sky. With Old Glory flapping in the wind, Blanken raised his right hand and led the Pledge of Allegiance. It seemed like the right thing to do, Blanken said about the ceremony his grandfather started so long ago. Blanken, a member of the 2nd Battalion, 32nd Field Artillery Regiment, said the holiday helps build a connection with the past and those who served. A small percentage of America actually serves and its good to see that connection, Blanken said. That way we can fight for each other and defend the Constitution of the Please see Special, 10A

City leaders on board casino concept

The Junction City Commission appears prepared to take an official position on the prospect of trying to bring a casino to the city or county. At its meeting earlier this week, Junction City Mayor Cecil Aska said he believed a resolution in support of a casino approved early last year should be redrafted. If we are in support of

that, (we should) take a position and get that known out there that we still support that resolution, Aska said. Im probably hearing 2-1 or 3-1 in favor. But my main support of it would be the economic impact it could have on this community. Talk of bringing a casino to the area isnt a new concept. Conversations within the community and in Topeka were held several years ago.

Theres even been a bill drafted, although it never has reached beyond the Kansas House Federal and State Affairs Committee. More recently, state representative Allan Rothlisberg (R-Grandview Plaza) has made pushing for a casino one of his missions. A bill he is sponsoring would allow for a fifth Kansas casino to be built in Geary County. Rothlisberg has said he expects the affairs commit-

tee, of which hes a member, to address the bill at a hearing in February. Meanwhile, Rothlisberg has been attempting to raise awareness among local governing bodies and business leaders. It appears Rothlisbergs rallying is working in some circles. On Tuesday, the Junction City-Geary County Economic Development Commission advisory committee announced its support

of bringing a casino to the area. That body cited the hundreds of jobs a casino could create and the revenue sharing the city and Geary County could receive. Private citizens are beginning to show interest, too. Theres some real good folks in town who are pursuing that, Commissioner Mick McCallister said. Even one of the landowners has asked me how does Please see City, 10A

While speaking and pacing across the Junction City Middle School stage, Jim Sands captured the attention of sixth graders with far different backgrounds and cultures. But there was a time in the Junction City Commissioners life when students were not allowed to be in the same school, let alone sit next to each other, because of the color of their skin. Sands visited the school Wednesday to share his personal experiences with segregation and racism, while growing up in Maryland. History is so important, Sands said to the

The students were amused and awed as Sands told tales of carrying buckets of water for everyday use at his home. Today, Sands said water from a faucet makes receiving that commodity easier. Another story included his childhood friend who happened to be white. Sands discussed how they rode their bikes together for miles. Eddie was just a wonderful guy, he said.

Set in the Mississippi Delta, the story is about a black family struggling to live during the Great Depression. Lindsay Murphy, language arts teacher, said students such as Katie Locke are learning from the book and enjoyed the visit. I thought it was a great learning experience and it taught the sixth grade more about segregation and it made us understand the book that were reading, Katie said.

Kerry mounts diplomatic push on Iran nuclear talks

Associated Press
GENEVA With a boost from Russia and China, Secretary of State John Kerry mounted a major diplomatic push Friday to reach an interim nuclear deal with Iran, despite fierce opposition from Israel and uncertainty in Congress. Kerry and his counterparts from Britain, France and Germany had arrived in Geneva with the talks at a critical stage following a full day of negotiations Thursday and said some obstacles remained in the way of any agreement offering sanctions reductions for nuclear concessions. Word that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and a Chinese deputy foreign minister also were headed to the talks provided fresh hope for at least an interim deal, perhaps on Saturday. But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted any agreement in the making was a bad deal that he said gave Iran a pass by offering to lift sanctions for cosmetic concessions that Netanyahu said left intact Tehrans nuclear weaponsmaking ability. Asked about Netanyahus criticism, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said any critique of the deal is premature because an agreement has not been reached. The White House later said President Barack Obama called Netanyahu to update him on the ongoing talks and said Obama affirmed hes still committed to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The White House said Obama and Netanyahu will stay in close contact. Kerry tempered reports of progress, warning of important gaps that must be overcome in the elusive deal that would offer limited sanctions relief if Iran starts capping programs that could make atomic arms. Lavrov also was joining the talks, Russias RIA Novosti news agency reported. His deputy, Sergei Ryabov, tions that have crippled Irans economy. In exchange, they demand initial curbs on Irans nuclear program, including a cap on enrichment to a level that can be turned quickly to weapons use. Iran, which denies any interest in such weapons, currently runs more than 10,000 centrifuges that have created tons of fuel-grade material that can be further enriched to arm nuclear warheads. It also has nearly 440 pounds (200 kilograms) of higher-enriched uranium in a form that can be turned into weapons much more quickly. Experts say 550 pounds (250 kilograms) of 20 percent-enriched uranium are needed to produce a single warhead. The six have discussed ending a freeze on up to $50 billion (37 billion euros) in overseas accounts and lifting restrictions on petrochemicals, gold and other precious metals. But their proposal would maintain core sanctions on Irans oil exports and financial sector, as an incentive for Iran to work toward a comprehensive and permanent nuclear accord. A semiofficial Iranian news agency quoted a member of Irans negotiating team as saying that Iran has asked for the lifting of oil and banking sanctions. We have announced to the Western side that the issue of oil and banking sanctions has to be taken into consideration in the first step, Majid Takht-e Ravanchi was quoted as telling a Mehr reporter in Geneva. Asked if there will be a deal, he said: We cant judge at this point whether we will reach a deal or not. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday an initial agreement would address Irans most advanced nuclear activities; increase transparency so Iran will not be able to use the cover of talks to advance its program; and create time and space as we negotiate a comprehensive agreement. Tehran could be pressing for more significant relief from the sanctions as part of any first-step deal. Comments from Lavrov suggested an even more basic disagreement Irans insistence that the six recognize what it calls its right to enrich uranium. Washington and its Western allies say such a right does not exist, despite Tehrans claim that it is enshrined in the nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Lavrov, in comments to reporters in Moscow, said Russia believes a deal should recognize Irans right to enrich, adding once that happens, it will be possible to start moving forward. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius spoke of progress, but told reporters nothing is hard and fast yet.

The diplomat spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to provide such information. We are reaching a very critical important point, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said in comments broadcast on Iranian PressTV. The negotiations have reached its critical, very sensitive situation, and it needs decisions at higher levels, he said, a reference to the arrival of the foreign ministers. Any agreement would be a breakthrough after nearly a decade of mostly inconclusive talks, but would only be the start of a long process to reduce Irans potential ability to produce nuclear arms, with no guarantee of ultimate success. Kerry arrived from Tel Aviv after meeting Netanyahu and trying to defuse concerns. Israel is strongly critical of any deal that even slightly lifts sanctions unless Iran is totally stripped of technology that can make nuclear arms. The talks primarily focus on the size and output of Irans enrichment program, which can create both reactor fuel and weapons-grade material suitable for a nuclear bomb. Iran insists it is pursuing only nuclear energy, medical treatments and research, but the U.S. and its allies fear that Iran could turn this material into the fissile core of nuclear warheads. Kerry said there were some very important issues on the table that are unresolved. There is not an agreement at this point in time, he told reporters. He was meeting later Friday with his European counterparts before joint talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, and Catherine Ashton, the European Unions top diplomat who is convening the talks. In earlier comments to Israeli television, Kerry suggested Washington was looking for an Iranian commitment to stop any expansion of nuclear activities that could be used to make weapons, as a first step. We are asking them to step up and provide a complete freeze over where they are today, Kerry said Thursday. Six powers the negotiators also include Russia and China are considering a gradual rollback of sanc-

From the editors desk Honoring a decorated Veteran

iving just steps from an Army post and in a city in which many former military personnel call home, Veterans Day means a little more here in Junction City. It is on these days we remember and think about the sacrifices made by so many in the past. Throughout this edition of The Daily Union, there are photos of Veterans Day tributes at the local schools held yesterday and a ceremony is set for Monday at the C.L. Hoover Opera House. Veterans Day is in honor of all those, living and dead, who served with the United States armed forces. It honors all those who have served in times of peace as well as during war. Veterans Day originally was called Armistice Day, because it commemorated the end of World War I on Nov. 11, 1918, when the fighting stopped at 11 a.m., the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. In 1919, on the first anniversary of the World War I truce, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation which honored the heroism of those who died. At the time, businesses stopped for two minutes, starting at 11 a.m. and it became customary to observe two minutes of silence. Many states made Armistice Day a holiday in the 1920s and 1930s, but in 1938, Congress declared it a federal holiday. In 1954, the name of the holiday changed from Armistice Day to VetL ISA erans Day to honor those who had S EISER served in World War II and the Korean War. So, as we lose our veterans, especially those from WWII, I want to send out a special tribute to a man I heard about for the first time yesterday. His younger sister called me and asked if we would be doing anything about Walter D. Ehlers for Veterans Day. I was embarrassed to say I didnt know anything about the Junction City native. But his sister was quick to understand and point out some of the achievements of this great man, who served our country on D-Day and earned a Medal of Honor for his service. Late during our 15-minute conversation, I decided to look him up online. I still had his sister on the phone and she kept telling me all these great things about her older brother. His story sounds so amazing. His was a staff sergeant and squad leader which was part of the D-Day invasions second wave. According to Wikipedia, on June 9, he led his units attack against German forces and singlehandedly defeated several enemy machinegun nests. The next day, his platoon came under heavy fire and he covered their withdrawal, carried a wounded rifleman to safety, and continued to lead despite his own wounds. For his actions, he was awarded the Medal of Honor six months later, on Dec. 19, 1944. His experiences are documented in the Pritzker Military Library in written word and through video and there is so much to read and talk about this man that I cant do his story justice. The 92-year-old currently resides at the VA hospital in Long Beach, Calif., and this is my special tribute to him and all the veterans across this city, county and nation. All it takes is a moment to think of veterans such as Walter, and show them respect. After all, they gave so much so other Americans didnt and dont have to. For all their efforts, veterans deserve to be honored and always remembered for their commitment and patriotism. To those of you who served, thank you.

The kids are amazing

Commentary Why are you bothering me? This is interfering with my texting. Someone will pick up my clothes. And if they dont, so what? American children are being done a great disservice by adult society. For reasons only Dr. Phil understands, many parents have decided to attach their own self-image to their children. So if the kid is amazing, that means the father or mother is amazing, as well. Thats whats going on. The huge downside is that it takes a lot of work and perseverance to become amazing, and most human beings never reach that status. But children are generally not told that. They are rarely confronted with the fact that life is tough and that to succeed you have be honest, industrious and disciplined. The discipline part kicks in when you hang up your clothing. The disturbing thing about childhood these days is that some parents and grandparents excuse a lot of questionable behavior because they want their kids to approve of them. It all goes back to amazing again. If your extra-special kid doesnt like you at the moment, maybe you arent topnotch. Americans whose parents were raised during the Great Depression or World War II understand how drastically things have changed on the home front. My father did not care a whit whether I liked him, and it would have been unthinkable for him to pick up my stuff. There were rules in the house, and they were enforced. So today, as an adult, I still pick up my stuff and recycle and keep a neat house. That is routine and not at all amazing. But Im not sure that tradition will survive the next generation.

or many American children, the floor has become their closet. This drives me crazy. I walk into a room where an urchin resides, and there are clothes scattered everywhere. Believe me, I know the passive-aggressive tactics that kids use to torture their parents, but something else is going on here. More than a few times, Ive heard parents describe their offspring as amazing. If you look up that word, you will see this meaning: To cause great wonder or astonishment. Thats what amazing means. So occasionally, I will ask the parent of an amazing child to tell me exactly why that word applies to their tyke. What is the great wonder associated with him or her? He just is comes the usual reply, along with a look that could kill a cactus. Many children fully realize their parents see them as astonishing creatures and incorporate that into their daily presentations. That is, they throw their stuff on the floor because if you are truly amazing you can pretty much do what you want. Right? When I confront the urchins about strewn clothing, I sometimes get a blank look. So I read their minds. And the brain waves come back this way:

Time for Obama to take his lumps P

resident Obama deserves forbearance on the bungled rollout of his health care initiative. After all, Republicans have dedicated themselves to sabotaging the law withholding funds required for a smooth inauguration, harassing the experts hired to explain the law to consumers, and even threatening the National Football League when Obama asked teams to advertise it to their audiences. Still, Obama deserves all the blame for the deception that may be the biggest threat to his signature legislative achievement and his legacy. He must have known better when he told Americans repeatedly over the past five years that they could keep their insurance policies if they were happy with them. As countless policyholders have learned over the past few weeks, thats simply not true. Early on, the president was careful in his descriptions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Speaking to a joint session of Congress in 2009, he said, If you are among the hundreds of millions of Americans who already have health insurance through your job, or Medicare, or Medicaid, or the VA, nothing in this plan will require you or your employer to change the coverage or the doctor you have. The veracity squad at Politifact rated that statement true. But as Obamacare, as it is now widely known, picked up a dedicated and vociferous group of critics, the president grew careless. In countless speeches in the last three to four years, he dropped the nuances: If you like the (health insurance) plan you have, you can keep it. Just as more Americans were beginning to pay attention to a mandate that

Commentary will go into effect in 2014, that flawed description became Obamas mantra. Now, as insurers send out cancellation notices, many consumers feel betrayed. And that includes some of Obamas most loyal supporters. Writer Peter Richmond, who has purchased his health insurance through a small group affiliated with a local Chamber of Commerce in upstate New York, was stunned to learn recently that his insurer was dropping the group. (Obama) spoke so vehemently about our being able to keep our coverage. ... I feel betrayed for the first time by (this) president. ... I resent it a great deal, he said. At a recent congressional hearing, Sen. Barbara Mikulski, a liberal Democrat from Maryland, weighed in, contending that the cancellation notices were creating a crisis of confidence about Obamacare. Shes right. On balance, the cancellation notices are affecting a relatively small group of Americans those who dont get insurance from their employers but who purchase it in the individual market. They represent about 5 percent of the population. There are no exact figures on the number receiving cancellation notices, but experts have given estimates ranging from seven to 12 million people.

About this page

To be fair, many of them will be better off. Obamacare has virtually abolished their old bare bones policies, some of which didnt even pay for hospital stays. With subsidies, many consumers will be able to buy far superior health insurance policies for less money. Kaiser Family Foundation health care expert Larry Levitt told CBS News that the winners will outnumber the losers. Still, there are many customers who are experiencing genuine rate shock. They will be stuck paying a higher premium for health insurance policies they may not have wanted. Thats bad enough, but its made worse by the fact that Obama misled them. At the moment, Obamacare is a morass of confusion: dysfunctional websites, lies spread by its critics and even deceptive practices by some insurance companies. Thats all the more reason that Americans need to be able to trust their president to tell them the truth about his health care overhaul even if some of that truth is unpleasant. Obama needs to stand up and admit that he misled consumers about keeping their health care plans. He needs to take his lumps and promise to give the public straightforward and truthful answers. If he keeps prevaricating, he will be doing as much damage to Obamacare as its harshest critics.

Flu season begins quietly in Kansas

TOPEKA The flu season has started in Kansas, but there are no early indications that it could be worse than in previous years, a state health official said Thursday. The seasons first flu cases were reported last week in Sedgwick County, but no widespread outbreaks have been reported so far, said Charlie Hunt, state epidemiologist for the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. The flu season generally runs from about late October through March, but Hunt noted that the hard part about it is that flu is unpredictable. The season generally peaks in February or March, although the 2009 season which saw a pandemic outbreak of the H1N1 strain peaked in October. Hunt recommends that all residents older than 6 months get the flu vaccine, but also take routine precautions such as frequent hand-washing, shielding coughs and staying home from work or school if feeling sick. He noted that colder weather isnt a major factor in how bad a flu season may be. Cold, dry air may allow the virus to stay aloft more, but I wouldnt focus on that, he said. Influenza or pneumonia was a factor in the deaths of last flu season of 1,444 residents in Kansas, up from more than 1,300 the

season before, according to KDHE statistics. Influenza and pneumonia was the eighth leading cause of death in Kansas in 2012. Hunt said increased surveillance across Kansas in recent years has helped health officials track the spread of flu viruses and any changes in the trends. He said the information reported by about 40 sites statewide can help alert providers if the virus is starting to emerge in their region and to expect patients to start seeking treatment. alcohol level was twice the legal limit, meaning she couldnt give consent to a sexual act.

Shawnee Court says KCC violated meetings law

TOPEKA A Shawnee County District Court has fined the Kansas Corporation Commission for violating the Kansas open meetings law. Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor said Friday the court fined the KCC $500, which is the maximum allowed. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the court also ordered the KCC to stop using notational voting, which is when staff meet individually with the three KCC members to secure their opinions before writing a public order. Taylor says the decision ends the litigation he pursued against the KCC after receiving a complaint from the Citizen Utility Rate Payer Board. Taylor says during the litigation, the KCC acknowledged a technical violation of KOMA when two commissioners met during a notational voting process while considering a rate request for a Saline County water district.

Kansas high court upholds murder conviction

TOPEKA The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld the capital murder conviction and life sentence of a Montgomery County man. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports the court rejected Christopher M. Lowrances argument that he had not attempted to rape the victim, which is one of the standards necessary to establish capital murder. Lowrance was convicted in the 2007 death of Rachel Dennis. Lowrance said he did not remember killing or trying to rape her. The high court said in its decision released Friday that although there was no evidence of sexual trauma, testimony showed Lowrance drove an intoxicated Dennis to a place he used for sexual encounters. The victim was found partially unclothed, and her blood

that a Kansas man is entitled to a trial over his claims that the juvenile detention center in Sedgwick County violated his rights by using a restraining chair as punishment. The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday mostly upheld the decision by a federal judge rejecting the request by the Sedgwick County Board of Commissioners and its employees to dismiss the lawsuit. The court said the defendants didnt have qualified immunity. Brandon Blackman sued in 2005 over the treatment he had gotten as an 11-year-old at the Kansas facility while awaiting trial on criminal charges that were later dismissed. The court says officials made liberal use of the restraining chair they had gotten a few weeks before the boy arrived at facility.

Grads of Dodge City helicopter program in demand

DODGE CITY Graduates of a Dodge City Community College program

that trains helicopter pilots arent having any trouble finding high-paying jobs and the demand is expected to continue, a college official said. The school also operates outreach campuses in Salina, Arizona and Utah, with students taking the academic part of the program in Dodge City and the flight training through Universal Helicopters, based in Arizona, The Wichita Eagle reported. The community college is planning to expand its operation in Provo, Utah, and will soon begin a program in Camarillo, Calif. All of our graduates are employed, said Anthony Lyons, the colleges vice president of community and industry relations. And thats the way we intend to keep it. Students can earn seven pilot ratings during the programs first two years. Then, Universal Helicopters hires the graduates as part-time flight instructors while they complete their

bachelor degrees at Kansas State University-Salina or Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Arizona. The demand for commercial helicopter pilots will continue to grow as current pilots retire or no longer have medical certificates that allow them to fly, Lyons said. As flight instructors, the students accumulate the 1,000 hours of flight time needed to be hired as commercial helicopter pilots. Graduates are finding jobs with oil rigs, medical evacuation operations or with other companies, Lyons said. With a college degree, helicopter training and a recommendation from the school, were able to get all our graduates hired out at 1,000 hours, said Gordon Jiroux, president of Universal Helicopters. Currently, about 120 students are enrolled in the programs, including 12 in Dodge City campus. About 150 or 160 students are expected to enroll in the spring semester.

Pucci opening boutiques in global fashion capitals

Associated Press
PARIS The storied Florentine house of Emilio Pucci, which made colorful, kaleidoscopic prints world-famous and once counted Marilyn Monroe as a top client, is embarking on a new chapter. The house has started an ambitious expansion campaign. Its opened up boutiques across the worlds fashion capitals, including New Yorks Madison Avenue, Romes Piazza di Spagna, and now on Paris prestigious Avenue Montaigne. Designer Peter Dundas is meanwhile trying to match the momentum by moving the house in a younger direction. But will Pucci, founded by the Italian aristocrat in 1947, succeed in shaking off that love-it-or-hate-it retro print thats garish for some, vibrant for others? I think that having the strong heritage, yes, its sometimes a challenge when you want to move forward, admitted Dundas in an interview. But I consider myself lucky. Theres an advantage having this DNA an opportunity to expand on it, he added. The print is still an important part of the collection, but it includes solids and neutrals now, he added. The tall, energetic 44-year-old is certainly not one to dwell on to the past. Dundas has made a name for himself since taking over the design helm in 2007 and is known for his red carpet showstoppers and celebrity circles, dressing stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez. Puccis glitzy new direction is not everyones cup of tea especially in Paris, widely considered a more demure fashion capital than Milan. (Like other Italian houses, the Florence-based Puccis womenswear designs are first shown during Milans fashion week.) The new collections are too bling. I am French. I like the vintage dresses and the timeless Pucci style, said Laetitia Benita, 30, outside Paris Pucci store. Chanels caustic couturier Karl Lagerfeld was more harsh: I think tattoos are horrible. Its like living in a Pucci dress fulltime. Lagerfelds Chanel boutique stares out almost intimidatingly from across the other side of Avenue Montaigne. But with the new Paris boutique, Pucci, a house thats particularly popular in Russia, the Middle East and Brazil, will soon find its place on Paris snooty fashion radar. The two-level store balances modernity and the houses rich history. The family headquarters, the 600-year-old Palazzo Pucci in Florence, is evoked in the boutique decor with intricate bronze gilding and with colors on the wall taken from the Renaissance frescos. Elsewhere the Pucci archives are referenced, with the geometric flooring taken from a print called Tower and in a bittersweet touch the signature Emilio appearing as an inlay in the style as it appears on the houses print dresses and soft foulard fabrics. Emilio Pucci died in 1992. His daughter, Laudomia Pucci, took over design in 1992 and remains as image director and vice-president. She spoke fondly of her fathers legacy, and what she sees as a false perception that the house seemed almost fossilized in the past. Certainly my fathers career was very strong from the early 50s to the late 70s, and he definitely defined a moment in fashion. We are still defined by that hot pot print, she said. Many people who are not so much in the industry sometimes say Pucci is only defined by color and print! Oh but there is so much more. Weve just done a collection in black and white, she said, pausing. But at least they know who we are, and thats something we can build on. She also spoke openly about the houses close relationship with Monroe. When (Emilio Pucci) first introduced the silk jersey, he took the thread and the American buyers said Mr. Pucci, an American lady will never be caught dead in this fabric. And actually Marilyn Monroe was in Los Angeles, walked in a store and bought a dress, walked out after taking off her bra and bumped into Mr. Miller and the rest of the story is pretty obvious, she said, referring to Monroes third husband, playwright Arthur Miller. They say that she was buried in Pucci, she added. In recent years she has tried to get a piece of the Monroe history back, by buying back pieces from the blond bombshells wardrobe. I have her knickers in my archives, she said.

Husband had affair with employee

Dear Annie: My husband works for a large mental health agency and five years ago had a two-year affair with a fellow employee. I found their illicit emails three years ago. Even though my husband and I are still together, I am broken and cannot heal. I pray and I strive and nothing works. It is the most painful and devastating experience of my life, and I wonder whether it has ruined me. I was a happy, cheerful woman before this, and everyone who knew me marveled at my good humor and vivacity. Not anymore. Please tell people to get divorced before having an affair. Otherwise, commit to your marriage and make it work. Infidelity is excruciating, and if you care at all for your partner, please, please have compassion and dont cheat. Broken in Omaha Dear Broken: Not being able to trust your partner is one of the most damaging elements of an affair and can impede attempts to reconcile. Your husband must be consistently transparent in all of his dealings, without complaint, for as long as it takes. This is a difficult process, and a trained professional can help guide you. Please ask your doctor or clergyperson to refer you to a marriage counselor, or contact the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy at aamft. org. While it would be best if your husband went with you, go alone if he refuses. Dear Annie: I am a welleducated retired business executive with upper middle-class resources. My wife passed away two years ago after 62 years of marriage. I met a remarkable woman who has many of the same endearing qualities as my late wife. Beatrice is twice widowed. Both of her husbands were quite wealthy, leaving her with substantial resources, a magnificent home, a large portfolio of income properties and several second homes around the world. Beatrice and I have fallen in love and are considering marriage. My concern is, with my more modest resources and income, I cannot offer her a single thing she doesnt already have, nor can I lavish on her the kind of things her previous husbands provided. Can this inequality of

resources stand the test of time? Or am I going to find myself feeling grossly inadequate and not measuring up to her expectations? How do I handle this? Uncertain in Love Dear Uncertain: How you feel is up to you. Money matters should be discussed before marriage, especially if you believe Beatrices expectations are not realistic. We assume she knows her income is greater than yours. It doesnt seem to bother her. Perhaps she would rather give than receive. If it would make you feel better to put a prenup in place to protect her assets, by all means, see an attorney. But please stop focusing on the disparity in income and concentrate on those factors that make you compatible and loving toward each other. Otherwise, you risk ruining what you have by worrying about what you dont. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Offended Wife, whose husband was receiving pornographic pictures from his father. I had a similar situation when I started to receive inappropriate emails from my boss with pictures of partially or totally naked women, often as part of a supposedly funny joke. I ignored them. Six months later, he retired, and within a year, he was diagnosed with Alzheimers. Maybe Offendeds husband should look at his fathers other behavior to see whether this could be whats going on and, if so, get Dad to a doctor. Been There

ARIES (March 21April 19). If push came to shove, your friends would help you out, but you make choices that ensure they probably never will have to. The most auspicious move is to play it safe. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You dont need to be with another person to feel rooted today. Youre solid naturally. You can connect with living things that are not people. You can even connect with rocks. GEMINI (May 21June 21). Its said that with age comes wisdom, but with age also come other complicated dynamics that can play in favor of or against wisdom. So dont automatically take the advice of your elders just because theyre older. CANCER (June 22July 22). One way to show your love for a person is to give that person a nickname. With the cosmic forces inspiring your imagination in quirky ways, youll think of the best contenders. LEO (July 23Aug. 22). You feel as whimsical as a child now, and when you act on some of those whims, the results can be extremely attractive. People need a little spontaneity in their lives now. VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22). Counting costs matters to you on some days, but today you just want to make sure that what you do has enormous value to someone. If that someone is you, all the better. LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 23). Organize a group discussion, or take part in one thats already going on. Youll learn more from a roundtable type of discussion than you will from speaking one on one with someone. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). It seems that a large group is marching forward, and you must get in step or be left behind. This is illusory. There are no large groups of people, only individuals. And with individuals, everything is negotiable. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Its unclear whether you will be able to get what you want. Youre also not so sure that you can force yourself to want what you have instead. Stay openminded. Tomorrow brings a change. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You dont have to actually be brave to execute brave action. In fact, most brave people are actually just people who have a habit of mustering courage and following through. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Its better to be a learner than to be learned. Learned people only know about what already has happened. Learners are constantly pushing into the future, their curiosity leading the way.

The awkward in-between phase can be quite beautiful if you relax into it.

Few options for Obama to fix cancellations problem
Associated Press
WASHINGTON President Barack Obama says hell do everything he can to help people coping with health insurance cancellations, but legally and practically his options appear limited. That means the latest political problem engulfing Obamas health care overhaul may not be resolved quickly, cleanly or completely. White House deputy spokesman Josh Earnest said Friday that the president has asked his team to look at administrative fixes to help people whose plans are being canceled as a result of new federal coverage rules. Obama, in an NBC interview Thursday, said I am sorry to people who are losing coverage and had relied on his assurances that if they liked their plan, they could keep it. The focus appears to be on easing the impact for a specific group: people whose policies have been canceled and who dont qualify for tax credits to offset higher premiums. The administration has not settled on a particular fix and its possible the final decision would apply to a broader group. Still, a president cant just pick up the phone and order the Treasury to cut checks for people suffering from insurance premium sticker shock. Spending would have to be authorized by law. Another obstacle: Most of the discontinued policies appear to have been issued after the law was enacted, according to insurers and independent experts.

against Young. Prosecutors agreed to dismiss with prejudice charges in the other five cases, according to the plea agreement, meaning Young cannot be retried for those charges. In court Wednesday, Brown said those charges will be dismissed at a Jan. 13 sentencing hearing. The agreement states Young will serve the sentence in the Kansas Department of Corrections. The document states Young also cannot oppose a lifetime post-release supervision term. A judge will have the final say on the agreement and Youngs sentence. Young has been confined in the Geary County Detention Center on a $1 million bond since his arrest on Aug. 13, 2012.

he get into the conversation with the city with regards to a location, which is right off I-70, just south of I-70 and East Chestnut (Street). Rothlisbergs bill simply would allow a casino to be built. Its not a guarantee one would be built, which Aska addressed. It may be a long shot, having this happen, Aska said. I think the stars kind of have to align and certain things need to take place for this to happen.

McCallister acknowledged the casino has opponents who have spoken up about a potential increase in crime and gambling addiction problems. I understand not everybodys a proponent of the casino, McCallister said. I ask you to have an open mind and (consider) where that can go. Other Kansas cities with casinos, such as Dodge City and Mulvane, could serve as an example for how Junction City could benefit, McCallister said. The key to getting this city back on its feet is to continue growth, he said, referring to the jobs a casino would create. Its not the only thing we need to do. Its not the panacea, its

not the silver bullet. But its the step in the right direction. Commissioner Mike Ryan said the commission needs to be vocal about its feelings toward a casino. If were going to support it, a resolution would be the smart thing to do, he said. If we go forward with it and were all going to support it, we need to have that out in the open, also. Commissioners asked city staff to prepare another resolution in support of a casino that will be discussed at its Nov. 19 meeting. Aska also directed city manager Gerald Smith to stay in touch with the EDC about the casino effort. important for the students to understand why it should be cherished and honored. Were raising the awareness level to have a better understanding of why we are celebrating it, she said about the holiday established to honor veterans and victims of all wars.

Charges filed against Young range in severity from indecent solicitation of a child to aggravated criminal sodomy. The alleged incidents occurred at Faith Tabernacle or the Apostolic Academy in Junction City. Each of the victims was younger than 16 years. Some were younger than 14 at the time of the incidents. Jordan Young is the son of former Faith Tabernacle head pastor Edwin Young. Documents state police were told Edwin Young resigned Aug. 2 for reasons other than any personal knowledge he had regarding Jordans actions. Other court documents show Jordan Young also stopped working at Faith Tabernacle on Aug. 2.

KSHSAA football district system is flawed

Football players across the state last night put pads on their shoulders and pulled jerseys snug on top. Then they snapped the straps on their helmets before heading out onto the field for the playoffs. Despite finishing with a 2-1 record in district play and a E THAN 6-3 overall record, P ADWAY the Junction City team did not participate in this ritual. For the second consecutive year, Junction City walked off the field in its final game victorious over rival Manhattan, only to see the Indians make the playoffs instead of them. This is a flaw in KSHSAAs football playoff system. Teams are grouped into a district before the season starts, allowing for some districts to be comprised entirely of strong teams and others filled with weaker ones. The district system also renders the first six weeks of the season irrelevant. Those six contests might as well be preseason, as the games have no bearing on the postseason. Why should geographic pairings set before the season (years before in some cases) influence which teams advance? With only 32 teams in class 6A, the field is already limited. This is part of the problem with the current everybody gets a trophy mentality of trying to have as many state champions as possible. But with the current difference Please see District, 3B

The Junction City Middle School girls 7th grade basketball teams traveled to Eisenhower to open up the season. In the A game, Eisenhower jumped out to a lead in the first quarter, but Junction City held them to just seven points in the second half. Still, Eisenhower won 26-8. Sarah Hallum led Junction City in scoring. The B team had a first quarter lead but could not maintain it down the stretch, losing 20-12. Adrianna Mullins led Junction City in scoring. St. Xavier middle school teams traveled to Herrington to kick off its season. The boys lost 30-14 and the girls fell 24-11.

Jayhawks coach Bill Self said that he anticipates Greene will play when No. 5 Kansas opens its regular season against Louisiana-Monroe on Friday night at Allen Fieldhouse. Greene is part of one of the most heralded recruiting classes in Selfs time in Lawrence. The 6-foot-7 guard was a four-star recruit out of Tifton, Ga., and has earned Selfs praise following his first two exhibition games for his rangy play and shooting touch.

Culture change key to Chiefs start


Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Andy Reid is tired of all the clichid questions about fresh starts. He insists that he wasnt burned out or in need of a break after 14 seasons leading the Philadelphia Eagles. Then again, maybe it wasnt Reid who needed to start all over. Maybe it was the Kansas City Chiefs. They had just endured one of the most miserable years in NFL history, one that was not only a complete failure on the field but a depressing disaster away from it. From the murder-suicide involving linebacker Jovan Belcher to the two measly wins, to the dismissal of general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel, there was very little positive that came of last year. In fact, just about the only positive may have been this: The Chiefs were able to hire Reid, who had just been fired by the Eagles, to orchestrate a much-needed cul-

KANSAS CITY, Kan. Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. Seth Sinovic hadnt found the net since last years Eastern Conference semifinals. But the Argentinian center forward and the hard-working hometown left back both came up big on Wednesday night, with clutch goals that lifted Sporting Kansas City into the East finals with a 3-1 overtime victory over the New England Revolution. Sinovic scored in the 79th minute to force the extra period, nine minutes after Dmitry Imbongos goal forced a 1-all tie in Wednesdays match and gave the Revolution a 3-2 aggregate lead in the two-match series.

tute delivered the series-winner off a cross from Benny Feilhaber. I think this game shows the character that our team has, said Sinovic, whose only previous career goal came last year in Sportings East semifinal loss to Houston. We were down two goals in New England and needed a goal to make things a little more realistic coming home, and then they tied it tonight and we needed another goal. So hopefully we can bring that to the next round. Bieler, who entered in the 84th minute, led Sporting with 10 goals in the regular season. But the designated players minutes had fallen off in recent months, and he last scored on a penalty kick on Sept. 7 against Columbus. He and I had a talk here last week, manager Peter Vermes said.

New Texas AD says no changes for changes sake


Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas New Texas athletic director Steve Patterson said Thursday he doesnt intend to make change just for the sake of making change at the nations wealthiest athletic department and he didnt discuss specific Longhorns sports during his job interview. I dont see it as a situation where we need a dramatic turnaround, Patterson said at his introductory news conference on campus. I dont anticipate monstrous changes to the department. Patterson doesnt yet have a contract and wont until at least next week when the universitys board of regents is expected to approve him as the replacement for DeLoss Dodds, who built Texas into one of the most powerful athletic departments in the country over the last 32 years. This is a premier program, it has been for decades, Patterson said. We want to compete for championships, day in and day out. Patterson inherits a department that has struggled to win at the level fans expect of a program so rich with resources. Mack Browns football team has fallen back into the pack in the Big 12 after playing for the 2009 national championship. Mens basketball had its first losing season since 1997-1998. And baseball, a perennial power, missed the Big 12 tournament last season. Brown, basketball coach Rick Barnes and baseball coach Augie Garrido all have been at Texas more than 15 years and their recent struggles have led to speculation their jobs are on the line. Patterson noted Texas

has very successful coaches. When asked what he sees as his biggest challenge, Patterson said he wants to take some time to evaluate the culture, the people that are here, the way the organization is heading .. I dont see this as an organization that is over the ditch. Patterson met with department staff Thursday morning and planned to meet with coaches in the afternoon. Patterson, 55, was hired away from Arizona State, where he had led the Sun Devils athletic department for less than two years. Prior to that, he had executive roles with the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA and the Houston Texans in the NFL. He also earned his undergraduate and law degrees from Texas. Its nice to be home, Patterson said. (Texas) is a great brand. Its a great lifechanging place. Patterson will find Texas a challenge in ways beyond the wins and losses. Although respected, the schools rivals have sometimes felt Texas carried too much weight in conference decisions. How Patterson maintains relationships with the Big 12 and its members will be watched closely. Former womens track coach Bev Kearney, who was forced to resign after revelations of a romantic relationship with one of her former athletes, has filed state federal discrimination complaints and has threatened to sue the university. Pattersons boss, school President Bill Powers, is in the middle of his own fight with some regents who want to replace him. Three regents, including Steve Hicks, one of the members of the advisory committee that interviewed Patterson, were involved in efforts last

January to gauge Alabama coach Nick Sabans potential interest in coming to Texas. Texas fans also will be eager to know if the Longhorns will resume the regular-season rivalry with Texas A&M, which broke up in 2011 when the Aggies left the Big 12 for the SEC. And Patterson will also have to study where to build a new basketball arena amid plans for a new medical school. And it wont be long before it will be time to negotiate a new contract for the annual rivalry football against Oklahoma in Dallas. That game is scheduled to be played at the Cotton Bowl through 2020 and the schools will again have to decide whether to keep it there or break tradition by either moving to another neutral field or making it a homeand-home series.

No. 15 Oklahoma State trying not to look past Kansas

Associated Press
STILLWATER, Okla. Nearly every aspect of No. 15 Oklahoma States game seemed to jell during an impressive 52-34 win over No. 25 Texas Tech last week. The next challenge for the Cowboys (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) is to maintain that intensity Saturday when lowly Kansas (2-6, 0-5) visits Stillwater. Theyll need to avoid looking past the Jayhawks, with the Big 12 teams of Texas, No. 5 Baylor and No. 12 Oklahoma next on their schedule. Along with a high-scoring offense, the Cowboys defense is ranked among the Big 12s best in nearly every category. But they cant get complacent. In order for us to reach our goal, which is to have a chance to win a conference championship, we certainly have to win this week, OSU coach Mike Gundy said. Im hoping that the maturity we have in our room, thats shown up in the last month, will help us. Meanwhile, Kansas is trying to salvage what could still be a promising season. This team will be remembered by what happens in the next four games, Kansas coach Charlie Weis said. Were 2-6 right now. If we end up 2-10, its not going to be very good, is it? 3-9? A little bit better. 4-8? OK, that shows signs. 5-7? OK, things are getting better. 6-6? They start building a statue. But that really is the perspective. Here are five things to look for when Oklahoma State goes for its 22nd straight win at home against an unranked opponent: 1. EX-JAYHAWK: Cowboys senior cornerback Tyler Patmon faces his former team. After starting 32 games the last three years for Kansas, Patmon graduated and opted to enroll at OSU for one final year of eligibility. Hes been a really big-impact player, Gundy said. We brought him in here to add some depth to our secondary, and hes essentially a starter. 2. THIRD-QUARTER BLUES: The Jayhawks have been outscored 69-31 in the third quarter this season, with several opponents breaking open close games en route to big wins. That happened against Texas last week, Oklahoma and TCU. When the fans or when everyone else wants to harp on the negative, Weis said, what you have to do is show them a whole bunch of good plays and say, Now thats you. 3. SPECIAL DELIVERY: Oklahoma State senior Josh Stewart returned a punt 46 yards last week, setting up a key Cowboy touchdown in the third quarter. Stewart has already returned two punts for touchdowns and had another called back because of a penalty. Our punt return unit has got so much confidence, said Stewart, who leads the nation with 364 punt return yards. We know it can change the game at any moment. And while having four teams from each district qualify would increase the chances of a playoff rematch, imagine the excitement of teams gearing up for a second opportunity against a school. Some might argue this will be too much travel. However, those detractors should realize that with next seasons new district alignment, all the other teams in Junction Citys district will be from Wichita. This four district solution seems like the best option, as it should theoretically increase the level of competitiveness in the playoffs. That is, until people begin to realize 6A and 5A really should be combined. But of course none of these changes will ever pass, leaving schools left to make the best of a less-than-ideal situation. At the end of the day, Junction City had a chance to make the playoffs and failed to knot up the score against Topeka High. The Blue Jays didnt come through, and must sit back, watching the rest of the playoffs wondering what couldve been. At least Junction City possesses the Silver Trophy for one more year.

Kansas coach Charlie Weis talks with receiver Rodriguez Coleman after he was injured during the second half against Texas, Saturday in Austin, Texas.
4. PIERSON PLAYS?: The Jayhawks top receiver Tony Pierson should return this week after missing three games with a concussion. He dressed last week but didnt play because he hadnt practiced yet. Pierson, who still leads the team with 21 receptions and 327 yards, practiced this week. Im hoping hes full-go this week, Weis said. 5. JUST GO FOR IT: Twice against Texas Tech, the Cowboys faced fourth down situations from inside the 3-yard line. Instead of taking the easy field goal points, they went for it and scored touchdowns.

Eric Gay The Associated Press

Continued from Page 1B
between the largest (Wichita East, 2,258) and smallest (Overland Park-Blue Valley West, 1,357) schools in 6A being more than 900 students, it might be hard to convince many people the 6A and 5A schools should merge. And with teams not playing an even number of games against class opponents, some would argue it wouldnt be fair to take overall records. Especially when some schools travel across state borders for games, making it harder to judge the strength of schedule. What about combining districts to create four made up of eight teams each? This would give each team seven district games, and allow cross-class rivalries to remain with the two open games on the schedule. And seven district games allows more of the regular season to impact the playoffs. With so many games in common, teams would have a better feeling for opponents.

AP source: Dolphins Martin to meet with NFL investigator


Associated Press
DAVIE, Fla. Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin will meet late next week in Los Angeles with the NFLs special investigator to discuss allegations in the teams harassment scandal, a person familiar with the situation said Friday. The person confirmed the upcoming meeting to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league and team havent announced the details of the investigation. Meeting with Martin will be Ted Wells, a senior partner in a New York law firm with experience in sports cases. Wells was appointed Wednesday by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to investigate possible misconduct in the Dolphins workplace and prepare a report that will be made public. Dolphins guard Richie Incognito was suspended in the wake of allegations by Martin, who is with his family in California to undergo counseling for emotional issues. Wells is investigating whether Incognito harassed or bullied Martin, and whether their teammates and the organization mishandled the matter. Incognito also arrived in Los Angeles on Friday on a flight from Miami, WPLGTV in Miami reported. His agent, David Dunn, is based in Southern California. There were no plans for Incognito to

Reid, Ryan rocking in AFC


Associated Press
Andy Reid cant lose. Chip Kelly cant win at home. Tom Coughlin turned out to be the New York coach on the hot seat while Rex Ryans job seems more secure. There are veteran coaches enjoying a resurgent year and others on a downward slope. Rookie coaches are having varying degrees of success in their first year in the NFL. Gus Bradley is winless in Jacksonville, but Marc Trestman has Chicago in a three-way for first place in the NFC North. The biggest story involving coaches has been their health following scary incidents last weekend. Houstons Gary Kubiak had a mini-stroke on the field and Denvers John Fox needed heart surgery after feeling dizzy on the golf course. Heres a Pick 6 of buzzworthy coaches halfway through the NFL season: ANDY REID: Bounced out of Philadelphia after the Eagles went 4-12 last season, Reid is 9-0 in Kansas City. Its a remarkable turnaround for the Chiefs, who were 2-14 in 2012. Big Red had a winning resume when he arrived in Kansas City, having led the Eagles to nine playoff appearances, six division titles, five NFC championship games and one Super Bowl in 14 seasons. But this has to be his best coaching job yet. Reid inherited a decent roster that returned four Pro Bowl players on a defense thats been dominant. He acquired quarterback Alex Smith to a run an offense thats been steady. Reid lost favor with fans in Philly because he didnt win the Big One. Now, hes got a chance to do it sooner than anyone expected in Kansas City. CHIP KELLY: Lured away from Oregon to replace Reid in Philadelphia, Kelly invigorated the organization, players and fans with new ideas, a new approach and new philosophy. His innovative, up-tempo offense got off to a fast start before injuries to quarterbacks Michael Vick and Nick Foles slowed the Eagles (4-5) down. Foles, however, rebounded from an awful performance with a record-tying seven touchdown passes last week and the Eagles are only one game back in a weak NFC East. Its certainly a bonus for a team that was supposed to be rebuilding. Kelly, though, has come under intense scrutiny for questionable playcalling and strange decisions. Hes clearly learning on the job against opponents far tougher than

any he faced in the Pac-12 Conference. TOM COUGHLIN: Despite leading the New York Giants to two Super Bowl titles in the previous six seasons, Coughlin was seemingly in trouble after an 0-6 start. Coughlin made sure to keep the team together through its struggles, and hes highly regarded enough that hes probably not going anywhere. Eli Manning, a turnover machine in the six losses, hasnt thrown a pick in the last two games, helping the Giants win two in a row. Coming off a bye, theyre somehow still alive in a division in which only Dallas (5-4) has a winning record. REX RYAN: The new Rex Ryan may be a better coach than the old brash, boastful guy who led the New York Jets to consecutive AFC championship games in his first two seasons. Ryan toned down his bravado, and the focus has shifted to his football team instead of his latest outrageous comment. With rookie Geno Smith under center, the Jets are 5-4 and in position to make a playoff push. The offense has been inconsistent with the up-and-down Smith leading the way and injuries limiting the receiving corps. But Ryans defense has been outstanding despite losing its best player, traded-away cornerback Darrelle Revis. GREG SCHIANO: Since a 6-3 start with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as a rookie coach last year, Schiano has lost 13 of 14. The Bucs have a shot at going 0-16, but theyre not even the worst team in Florida. The Jaguars also are 0-8 and losing uglier games. Schiano botched quarterback Josh Freemans benching, and eventually released the former first-round pick. Many wonder if hes another college coach out of his element in the pros. There are questions about whether hes lost the locker room, and fans have been calling for his ouster. BILL BELICHICK: Leading these New England Patriots to an AFC East title might be Belichicks top coaching accomplishment. Thats saying a lot for a three-time Super Bowl champion who once guided the Patriots to a 16-0 record. Sure, Belichick still has Tom Brady. But thats about it. Bradys receivers probably wouldnt start for any other team, and he just got Rob Gronkowski back. The defense has been decimated by injuries to key players. Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo are gone for the season, and top cornerback Aqib Talib has been sidelined nearly a month. Yet, the Patriots are 7-2 and heading toward a 10th division title in 11 years.

meet with Martin, two people familiar with the situation told the AP on condition of anonymity because the NFL investigation is ongoing. Incognito has long been regarded as among the NFLs dirtiest players, and has had brushes with the law. A police report that surfaced Thursday said a female volunteer at a Dolphins charity golf tournament in May 2012 complained that Incognito harassed her. According to the report filed in the Miami suburb of Aventura, the woman said Incognito touched her inappropriately with his golf club, leaned close to her as if dancing and then emptied bottled water in her face. Incognito was not charged. The Dolphins declined to comment Friday. The Dolphins (4-4) will play for the first time since the scandal broke Monday night at Tampa Bay (0-8). At least 75 reporters and cameramen tracking the case were in the locker room after Thursdays practice, but defensive end Cameron Wake said the scrutiny wont prevent the team from playing well. In the locker room this isnt an issue, Wake said. We talk about football, we talk about making plays, stunts, tackling, catching the ball, whatever it may be. To me its kind of silly. Im in here trying to talk about football, and everybody wants to talk about something else. The team had Friday off.

Transfers again expected to have a big impact on season


Associated Press
Even casual college basketball fans know about this years crop of fantastic freshmen. Top-ranked Kentucky has a starting five and more, led by potential lottery picks Julius Randle and Wayne Harrison. Aaron Gordon and RondaeHollis Jefferson are expected to play big roles at No. 6 Arizona, Jabari Parker could be a star at No. 4 Duke and Andrew Wiggins at No. 5 Kansas could be the best of the bunch playing alongside fellow freshman Wayne Seldon. Those guys could be great, but at this point, the season hasnt even started, so their impact is all still based upon potential. There are a group of newcomers who do have a proven track record: Transfers. College basketball has been filled with good players transferring to new teams and this season will be no different. And while they may not have the profile of some of these stars-in-waiting freshmen, but some of them could have a bigger impact than some of their younger counterparts. Here are a few to keep an eye on for the 2013-14 season: T.J. MCCONNELL, GUARD, ARIZONA: The Wildcats made it to the Sweet 16 last season without a true point guard. Mark Lyons was a good player, but more of a shooting guard filling in at the point. McConnell gives them that point guard. The heady, gritty junior

He created a healthy environment, Smith explained. There are a lot of situations you have to go through to build relationships, but hes created a healthy environment to come in and focus on football every single day. Hes done a great job of doing that. Indeed, what was once a volatile working environment has become serene. What was once a toxic place to practice and play has become energized and enthusiastic. What was once a 2-14 team is 9-0 heading into its week off. The team has been through so much the last couple years, linebacker Justin Houston said, so we can withstand a lot of things. The reclamation of the Chiefs may have begun with a culture change, but it took some savvy moves by Dorsey and some brilliant coaching by Reid to make it work. Along with acquiring Smith, the Chiefs selected right tackle Eric Fisher with the first pick in the draft. They bolstered their defensive backfield by signing Sean Smith and Dunta Robinson, and plugged other holes with guys such as defensive end Mike DeVito not flashy, just effective. But the real genius behind Dorseys work has been seen in guys such as cornerback Marcus Cooper, who was two picks away from Mr. Irrelevant. He was waived by the 49ers and snatched up by the Chiefs, and hes developed into one of the best feel-good stories in all of football this season. Tight end Sean McGrath was similarly picked off the scrap heap. Thats all John, Reid said. Hes done a good job of finding talent wherever he can. Once the talent was on hand, Reid began molding it into shape. The Chiefs offense evolved into

one that relies heavily on the short passing game, and is predicated on Smith playing mistake-free. The defense is no longer the read-andreact favored by Crennel but a blitzing, exotic and downright nasty group led by coordinator Bob Sutton. Whats been spit out is a team that has joined the 1977 Falcons as the only ones in NFL history to allow 17 points or fewer in each of their first nine games. Theyre a team thats matched the 2003 Chiefs for the best start in franchise history. Theyre a team that for a while was on pace to shatter the NFL record for sacks in a season. Confidence is constantly building, safety Kendrick Lewis said. Theres perhaps no better example of how confident the Chiefs have become than the fourth quarter, when theyre outscoring opponents 70-17. In fact, theyve given teams 20 possessions with a chance to tie or take the lead in the fourth quarter and yielded just three points. Thats how you close out wins in the NFL. There are detractors that say the Chiefs have played a soft schedule, and that an offense that only managed three field goals in a win over Buffalo will be their downfall. They argue that the Chiefs are the worst 9-0 team in NFL history, and that the crazy numbers theyre putting up the 23 takeaways, the plus-15 turnover differential are all a mirage. But the Chiefs know that their finishing stretch includes two highprofile showdowns against the Broncos, along with games against the Chargers, Colts and Redskins. There will be plenty of chances to prove that theyre for real. Weve been through a lot, on and off the field last year, and this year is a big testament to our character and what we stand for, linebacker Derrick Johnson said. And all that stuff weve been through in the past is helping us now, keeping us humble.

sat at last season after transferring from Duquesne and already has chemistry with Arizonas returning players after practicing with the team last season. Hes a pass-first point guard who shoots well and may be the best perimeter defender this side of Ohio States Aaron Craft. MIKE MOSER, FORWARD, OREGON: The rugged forward was one of the best big men in the West as a sophomore, averaging 14 points and 10.5 rebounds with UNLV in 201112. He was plagued by injuries last season and will be allowed to play immediately for the Ducks after completing his undergraduate degree at UNLV. Moser should help Oregon offset the loss of Arsalan Kazemi and give the Ducks some frontcourt help on a team that has superb guards. RODNEY HOOD, GUARD, DUKE: The Blue Devils already have a deep roster and one of the best incoming freshmen in Parker. Even on a team like that, Hood should have a big impact. The 6-8 swingman sat out last season after transferring from Mississippi State and gives the Blue Devils a multidimensional player who can play the point, shooting guard and both forward spots. He averaged 10.8 points and 4.8 rebounds at Mississippi State in 2011-12. TARIK BLACK, FORWARD, KANSAS: Another instance of the rich getting richer. Black graduated from Memphis, so will be eligible to play right away, and gives

coach Bill Self some added beef and leadership to go with a deep roster that includes Wiggins. Black was mostly a backup at Memphis, starting five of 32 games last season, shooting nearly 59 percent while averaging 8.1 points and 4.8 rebounds. Black never quite lived up to his blue-chip status coming out of high school, but could be a good addition to an already talented team. JOSH DAVIS, FORWARD, SAN DIEGO STATE: Davis has yet to play a game for the Aztecs, but is already drawing comparisons to former SDSU star Kawhi Leonard. That may be a stretch this early in the process Leonard is in the NBA, playing for the San Antonio Spurs now but theres little doubt Davis will be a big contributor. The 6-8 senior was a dominating force inside for Tulane last season, averaging 17.6 points and 10.7 rebounds, which was eighth nationally. EVAN GORDON, GUARD, INDIANA: Gordon played one season for Arizona State after transferring from Liberty and never completely meshed with the Sun Devils. He averaged 10.1 points per game, but often scored in bunches or hardly at all. As a graduate, he will be eligible to play for the Hoosiers right away and give them a veteran presence on young team. Gordon, the younger brother of NBA player Eric Gordon, can score he scored 29 points against Sacramento State and 28 against USC last season and could fill in at point guard for Indiana.

Kansas forward Tarik Black, then with Memphis, jumps for a dunk during practice on March 15, 2012 in Columbus, Ohio. Black graduated from Memphis, so he will be eligible to play right away, and gives University of Kansas coach Bill Self some added beef and leadership to go with a deep roster.

Snyder, who would get his 175th victory with a win over the Red Raiders, remembers his first meeting with Kingsbury. It was in Manhattan, Kan., in 2000 when Kingsbury was the starting quarterback under former Red Raiders coach Mike Leach. Kansas State (4-4, 2-3) won 28-23. He seemed like a pleasant young guy, bright as a quarterback, Snyder said. I thought he was a good leader, so if somebody said at the time he would get into coaching, that wouldnt have surprised me. The young coach who treats his players more like peers while Snyder is more of a grandfatherly figure to his players said the No. 25 Red Raiders (7-2, 4-2) will need to be on their toes in every facet of the game. All three phases are going to be wellcoached, and theyre not going to give you anything, Kingsbury said. Its going to be one of those games where you have to make the play and take it, because there wont be any cheap ones. Here are five things to watch when Kansas State plays Texas Tech: TURNOVER TORRENT: The Red Raiders are tied for sixth worst in the nation with 22 turnovers in nine games, 14 interceptions and eight fumbles. Kansas State is not far behind with nine

interceptions and nine fumbles in eight games to tie for ninth worst. MUSICAL QBs: The Wildcats have two QBs and they use them both. Jake Waters is the better thrower, while Daniel Sams is the better rusher. Its taken some time but the duo have found a rhythm. Now, the key is scoring whenever we get to the red zone, Sams said. We cannot walk away with field goals. RED RAIDERS DEFENSE: The Red Raiders defense will likely be without four starters DL Dartwan Bush, LB Terrance Bullitt, and safeties J.J. Gaines and Tre Porter. Three of the four are senior, multi-year starters. Our young guys have to step up, Kingsbury said. When theyre put in position to make plays, they have to make plays. So there are no excuses. The past two games Texas Tech has given up 288 and 277 yards rushing in its only losses and will face two of the Big 12s top 10 rushers in Sams (74.5 yards per game) and senior RB John Hubert (68.6 ypg). REBOUNDING FROM LOSSES: Kingsbury isnt worried about his teams morale after back-to-back losses. He says his Red Raiders have yet to show their potential. Ive said all along, we havent played our best game, and I think thats what keeps this group excited. When we do put it together, we can be pretty good. BOWLING WILDCATS? Wildcats WR Tyler Lockett says teammates are tired of losing games and of things not going Kansas States way. They need a win Saturday and another, either at TCU, at OU or at home against Kansas to be bowl eligible. I think that everyone is starting the see that the storm is finally passing and that we see everything that we are capable of doing, he said.

Soap box derby made famous Dayton, came to JC

emember the excitement of building your first soap box derby

You wanted everything to be just right. You picked a color that would stand out in the crowd so that your friends and family would be able to pick out your car. Dad would double check your car the night before the big race to make sure it was safe. This was a good thing because you knew that you were going to fly down that slope faster than everyone else. Soap box derby racing was first organized by a Dayton, Ohio newsman named Myron Scott who was motivated by a group of boys racing their homemade cars in the summer of 1933. If you have never seen a soap box derby car they are completely unpowered; no motor or petals. They are often a narrow wooden frame with a shape similar to a kayak. There is a small area for the driver to sit and steer the car. Weights in the front of the car help them gain speed as they race downhill. Watching the childrens enjoyment in the races inspired Scott to acquire a copyright and search for a corporate sponsor so that children from all over the USA could compete in a race. Chevrolet was so impressed with the idea that they agreed to sponsor the first All American Soap Box Derby at Daytona in 1934. The following year it moved to Akron, Ohio because it was a more desirable location with many hills. Chevrolet sponsored the

Museum Musings Soap Box Derbys until 1972 when the Akron Area Chamber of Commerce took over the program. In 1974 the Akron Chamber gave all rights to the program to the Akron Jaycees who established the International Soap Box Derby Inc., which continues to run it. The Derby quickly gained international media attention in 1935 when an out of control car struck Graham McNamee, a popular radio announcer of the time. Derby Downs, a permanent track was built in Akron, Ohio in 1936 with the help of the Works Progress Administration. Soap Box Derbys have been held there every year except for a four year hiatus during World War II. The popularity of the sport quickly spread and all across the country Soap Box Derbys were held with the winners moving on to the nationals at Derby Downs in Akron. It was popular here in Junction City also. On July 4, 1963 The Union estimated that 1,000 people lined East Sixth Street between Grandview Plaza and Junction City as boys raced homemade cars down a specially built 1,000 foot course to qualify for the National Soap Box Derby. The winner was 14 year old Dana Wolf. Dana was awarded a $500

scholarship, a trophy, and the right to compete nationally on Aug. 3 in Akron, Ohio. His trip was sponsored by the Junction City Optimist club. They purchased the car for $19.50, the amount Dana had spent to build the car. They also paid for its transportation to and from Akron. Dana traveled to Akron with his family, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Wolf, and his sister, Connie. Arriving in Akron the family was given a police escort, complete with sirens to Derby headquarters. Dana and the other 238 contestants stayed in Derbytown U.S.A. while in Akron. The contestants came from 45 states and six countries. Entertainment was varied and included swimming, horseback riding, baseball and other games. On Friday evening the boys dinned with celebrities Arthur Godfrey, radio talk show host; Paul Anka, singer; John Russell, star of the television show Law Man; Paul Lynde, comedian; and Rock Hudson, movie star. Saturday was Derby Day; it began with a big parade featuring all the racers in their race day uniforms, celebrities, and 61 bands. The races began later that day. Dana was defeated by a .03 of a second in the second round. His competitor was John Gaylor of Columbus, Ga. who was later beaten in the finals by Harold Conrad of Duluth, Minn. Junction City is proud to have been represented by

14 year old Dana Wolf won the Soap Box Derby in Junction City on July 4, 1963. He went on to compete in the National Soap Box Derby in Akron, Ohio.

AP Technology Writer
NEW YORK Shares of Twitter went on sale to the public for the first time Thursday, instantly leaping more than 70 percent above their offering price in a dazzling debut that exceeded even Wall Streets lofty hopes. By the closing bell, the social network that reinvented global communication in 140-character bursts was valued at $31 billion nearly as much as Yahoo Inc., an Internet icon from another era, and just below Kraft Foods, the grocery conglomerate founded more than a century ago. The stocks sizzling performance seemed to affirm the bright prospects for Internet companies, especially those focused on mobile users. And it could invite more entrepreneurs to consider IPOs, which lost their luster after Facebooks first appearance on the Nasdaq was marred by glitches. In Silicon Valley, the IPO produced another crop of millionaires and billionaires, some of whom are sure to fund a new generation of startups. Twitter, which has never turned a profit in the seven years since it was founded, worked hard to temper expectations ahead of the IPO, but all that was swiftly forgotten when the market opened. Still, most analysts dont expect the company to be profitable until 2015. Investors will be watching closely to see whether Twitter was worth the premium price. Thursdays stock surge was really not as important as you might think, said Kevin Landis, a portfolio manager with Firsthand Funds, which owns shares in Twitter. What really matters is where the stock is going to be in six months, 12 months. The most anticipated initial public offering of the year was carefully orchestrated to avoid the dysfunction that surrounded Facebooks IPO. Trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol TWTR, shares opened at $45.10, 73 percent above their initial offering price. In the first few hours, the stock jumped as high as $50.09. Most of those gains held throughout the day, with Twitter closing at $44.90, despite a broader market decline. The narrow price range indicated that people felt it was pretty fairly priced, said JJ Kinahan, chief strategist at TD Ameritrade. The price spike clearly shows that demand exceeds

the supply of shares, said Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter. Earlier in the day, Twitter gave a few users rather than executives the opportunity to ring the NYSEs opening bell. The users included actor Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation; Vivienne Harr, a 9-year-old girl who ran a lemonade stand for a year to raise money to end child slavery; and Cheryl Fiandaca of the Boston Police Department. Twitter raised $1.8 billion Wednesday night when it sold 70 million shares to select investors for $26 each. But the huge first-day pop left some analysts wondering whether the company could have raised more. Had Twitter priced the stock at $30, for instance, the company would have taken away $2.1 billion. At $35, it would have reaped nearly $2.5 billion. Thats a lot for a company thats never made a profit and had revenue of just $317 million last year. If the price stays this high, or goes even higher, shareholders will no doubt be happy. But the money that they might make from any stock sale doesnt go to the company. Named after the sound of a chirping bird, Twitters origins date back to 2005, when creators Noah Glass and Evan Williams were trying to get people to sign up for Odeo, a podcasting service they created. Odeo didnt make it. By early 2006, Glass and fellow Odeo programmer Jack Dorsey began work on

Inc. puts Twitters fundamental value at about half of the IPO price, said analyst Ken Doctor. That figure is based on factors such as revenue and revenue growth. Thats not unusual, Doctor said. Especially for tech companies. You are betting on a big future. As a newly public company, one of Twitters biggest challenges will be to generate more revenue outside the U.S. More than three-quarters of Twitters 232 million users are outside the U.S. But only 26 percent of Twitters revenue comes from abroad. The company has said that it plans to hire more sales representatives in countries such as Australia, Brazil and Ireland. Twitter shares entered a declining market. Wall Street had its worst day since August as traders worried that the Federal Reserve could cut back on its economic stimulus. Investors grew concerned about a surprisingly strong report on U.S. economic growth in the third quarter, which led many to believe the Fed could start pulling back as soon as next month, earlier than many anticipated. After 33 record-high closes this year, an increasing number of investors believe the stock market has become frothy and is ready for a pullback.

Good food, good music and good fun have been the order of that day along with the opportunity to win a beautiful gift basket and to present and cheer the winners of the librarys annual bookmark contest. The Geary County Landmark Keepsakes also continue to be popular items for those who like to wear their community pride on their sleeves or at least make it part of their dcor. Four of the five original keepsakes are still available including the opera house, the George Smith Library building, the Buffalo Soldier Memorial, and the first high school which currently serves as the historical society museum.

Insurer to pay Three Cups charity

Associated Press
HELENA, Mont. An insurance company will pay $1.2 million to a charity co-founded by Three Cups of Tea author Greg Mortenson in a settlement over the legal costs of a lawsuit and an investigation into Mortenson and the Central Asia Institute, attorneys involved in the settlement said. The settlement, if approved, will mark an end to more than two years of legal troubles for Mortenson after 60 Minutes and author Jon Krakauer published reports that alleged Mortenson fabricated parts of his best-selling books and mismanaged the Central Asia Institute. After those reports, then-Montana Attorney General Steve Bullock launched an investigation into the charity. A settlement required Mortenson to repay $1 million and made fundamental changes to the institutes structure. Four readers then filed a lawsuit that claimed Mortenson, co-author David Oliver Relin, publisher Penguin and the Central Asia Institute were involved in a fraud conspiracy by Mortenson lying in his best-selling Three Cups of Tea to boost sales and donations to the charity. Three Cups of Tea and the sequel, Stones Into Schools, recount how Mortenson started building schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Three Cups of Tea has sold about 4 million copies since being published in 2006. A district judge threw out the lawsuit, and the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the ruling. Along the way, Mortenson and the Central Asia Institute racked up approximately $1.8 million in legal fees defending themselves in the investigation and the lawsuit.

faces an uphill battle to get the law passed. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harpers conservative government opposes the initiative and has warned it could launch a legal challenge against it if it does pass. We will strongly defend the fundamental Canadian freedom and association against any effort to encroach upon those fundamental constitutional rights, said Jason Kenney, Canadas minister for multiculturalism. Quebecs opposition Liberals have criticized the plan, except for the provision banning people from covering their faces while providing or receiving state services. Liberal Leader Philippe Couillard called the law a direct attack on the rights and freedoms of all citizens that threatens to fracture Quebec society. The Coalition party, which holds the swing vote in the legislature, said its open to discussions with the PQ. Polls suggest Quebec, a primarily French-speaking province with a population of 8.1 million, is deeply divided on the issue. Support is higher outside metropolitan Montreal. Protests both for and against the proposal have

Quebec proposes ban on wearing religious symbols


MONTREAL The Quebec government moved forward Thursday with a proposed law that would ban public employees from wearing overt religious symbols, setting the stage for a showdown over the place of religion in the province. Quebec Premier Pauline Marois said the law aims to preserve the provinces fundamental values, including the equality of men and women and the separation of church and state. Her separatist Parti Quebecois on Thursday introduced its Charter of Values in the provinces legislature. Today, were taking steps to build a diverse Quebec that will endure for a long time, she said at a news conference in Quebec City. The law would forbid government employees from wearing Muslim headscarves, Jewish kippas, Sikh turbans and largerthan-average crucifixes. It would also prohibit citizens from covering their faces while receiving public services, such as applying for drivers licenses, for the purpose of identification. The Parti Quebecois does not have a majority in the provincial legislature and

been staged since it was first announced in September. Thousands of Muslims, Sikhs and Jews have marched through Montreals streets to denounce what they call an affront on religious freedom. Many have said they would lose their jobs rather than comply with the law. The law would apply to those who work in public institutions such as daycares, schools and hospitals.

Bishop presses House on immigration

Associated Press
WASHINGTON The president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is pressuring the House to act on immigration legislation before the end of the year, calling the issue a matter of great moral urgency that cannot wait. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, said in a letter to Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, on Thursday that he was troubled by reports that immigration reform is delayed in the House since lawmakers have a responsibility to resolve the issue. Writing on behalf of the 450-plus U.S. cardinals and bishops, Dolan said they respectfully request that the House address the immigration issue as soon as possible. The Senate passed a bill in June that would provide a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally and tighten border security, but the measure has stalled in the House where Boehner and GOP leaders have argued for a piecemeal approach. As a moral matter ... our nation cannot continue to receive the benefits of the work and contributions of undocumented immigrants without extending to them the protection of the law, Dolan wrote. Keeping these human beings as a permanent underclass of workers who are unable to assert their rights or enjoy the fruits of their labor is a stain on the soul of the nation. Dolan reiterated the bishops stand that immigration legislation includes a path to citizenship, reaffirms family reunification, deals with future flows of migrant workers and restores basic due process protections to immigrants. He wrote Boehner, a Catholic, that immigration is a challenge that has confounded our nation for years, with little action from our federally elected officials. It is a matter of great moral urgency that cannot wait any longer for action. The House has just a few legislative days left in the year, and prospects for any legislation are murky.

The All-American holiday celebration
Field & Garden got here it usually meant harvest was over and we were getting ready for winter. If you think about the traditional foods that we eat though, they mainly have strong American roots. If we start with the turkey, it certainly has American roots there. The domestic turkey that most of us eat today is selected from the Wild Turkey of the Americas and is native to the US and Mexico. Early explorers (pre Pilgrim explorers) took the turkey back to Europe where it quickly became popular. As any turkey hunter can tell you, there is a big difference in the carcass/meat between wild turkeys and the domestic turkey that we purchase in the grocery store to roast or fry. As for me, I like them both. Corn is often fixed in many different ways for Thanksgiving. It may be ground and used to make corn bread. It may be fixed as a whole kernel product like creamed corn. Regardless, corn is yet another product of the Americas. Corn, or maize, was a wild grass that became domesticated in the valleys of Mexico several thousand years ago. Once it was domesticated it quickly spread across much of the Americas and even Caribbean islands so it was wide spread once the Pilgrims landed in the early 17th century. Corn meal, used for corn bread is made from what we would call field corn. The corn we cook as whole kernel is sweet corn which has a much higher sugar content than field corn. Sweet potatoes, sometimes called yams, are also a new world plant. Different varieties were grown in the Caribbean islands and up the east coast of the US. African slaves that arrived in the Caribbeans found the sweet potato and used it very similarly to an African root crop and started referring to it as yams. But they are different plants. Most of the sweet potatoes we eat and grow today are the Peurto Rican type displacing the New Jersey types. So we have to finish up with pumpkins and squash. Ill cover them together because basically they are all pretty much the same. If the squash is round and orange we call it a pumpkin, if its any other color or shape, we call it a squash. But they are all in the genus Cucurbita and fit into one of four species. Squash of all kinds were readily used by the pre-Colombian residents and the new American residents quickly took to them as well. Interestingly, there is nothing round or orange that goes into commercial pumpkin pie filling. It is generally a mix of two thirds large buff colored field pumpkins and one third butternut squash. Ironically, while I love squash, Im not a big pumpkin pie fan. So there you are. Thanksgiving is coming along quickly. Enjoy your family and friends, enjoy your feast and remember that most of those traditional foods are All-American. Gosh, I forgot cranberries.

e Americans love our holidays. Around the world people celebrate numerous religious holidays like Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah and others. I always find it interesting to look at the holidays that a country celebrates. Like many other countries, we have a lot of holidays that were born here and celebrated primarily only here. Theres the 4th of July, Presidents Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day and numerous other American holidays. But the one that has the deepest roots, even deeper than the 4th of July, is Thanksgiving. Ive always loved Thanksgiving. I dont know if its because its the time of the year, or the history it shares with the Pilgrims. Maybe its the food, plain and simple or maybe its because of being raised on a farm and once Thanksgiving

Plan to enjoy Thanksgiving T

hanksgiving is less than three weeks away. What can you do that will help you relax and enjoy the day? Begin by sketching out the menu. The main course serves as the anchor for the meal. From there, you can identify what side dishes would look and taste good next to the main course. Delegate the side dishes out to those who will be joining you that day. Not only will this help with the time management part of preparing the meal, but will reduce the financial strain placed on your food budget for the holiday. Creating a budget is another helpful part of planning ahead.

Plan ahead

Living Resourcefully Consider how much additional food expense your family budget can absorb and remain committed to working within that budget. Watch the sale ads and look for the best prices. Serving the traditional Thanksgiving meal can be accomplished on a tight budget if you take the time to shop around. Using your menu and the sale ads to work from, make a list. Take stock of what you

already have on hand and mark anything off the list that you dont need to buy. This will help you avoid overstocking and the impulse purchases that are commonly made when shopping without a list. Before you shop, clean out your refrigerator. Make sure you have room to properly store the perishables when you return from shopping. You want to have ample room in your refrigerator on the day of the meal to handle the leftovers properly. Place the frozen turkey on a cookie sheet in the refrigerator for 24 hours for every five pounds of bird.

Prepare safely

You can speed the process up by placing the turkey in the sink and cover it completely with cold water. This method will take about 30 minutes per pound. You cannot thaw on the kitchen counter because this provides ideal conditions for bacteria growth. The turkey will thaw from the outside in and that will allow the surface of the turkey to fall within the danger zone the ideal temperatures for bacteria growth (40 degrees to 140 degrees Fahrenheit). You cannot be certain that cooking the turkey will destroy all the bacteria and some bacteria can withstand heat. If you are preparing a pre-stuffed turkey, you DO NOT want to use either of the meth-

ods mentioned above, but cook it directly from the frozen state. This will prevent the growth of bacteria in the stuffing in the turkey. To ensure the turkey is done, use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. From the time your hot foods are removed from the heat source, you have two hours to serve and then store them safely. Make sure you place the leftovers in shallow containers to make sure they cool below 40 degrees Fahrenheit quickly. Never store leftovers in a crockpot because it takes too long for the food to reach the safe tempera-

Put away afterwards

ture. You can store the leftovers safely in the refrigerator for up to four days or in the freezer for one month. Label the leftovers with the date and contents. Dont let the holiday and the shopping sneak up on you. Take some time in the next two weeks planning for the special celebration so that everyone, including YOU, can enjoy the day with family and friends. For more information on safe food handling practices or creating a food budget, call the Geary County extension office (785) 2384161.
