That was just one of the lessons learned during the afternoon session of the Flint Hills annual Leaders Retreat. Many, like Weigand, all drove for at least an hour some close to two to listen to fellow leaders and experts talk about the subject of regionalism and collaboration as it pertains to benefitting and improving the communities within the Flint Hills. About 250 area stakehold-

Pencek denied parole for ninth time

Victim and community objections played a factor

Rocking and Reading

Did you know that you can watch videos on Videos range from local to national.

A man convicted in Geary County of kidnapping, raping and murdering a young woman in 1974 was denied parole last month by the Kansas Prisoner Review Board. The board denied parole for Frank Pencek Jr., 66, because of the seriousness and violent nature of his crimes, Kansas Department of Corrections Communications Director Jeremy Barclay told The Daily Union Thursday. Barclay said victim and community objections also played a factor in the boards decision. Almost 40 years ago, Pencek was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus five to 20 years for kidnapping, raping and murdering 20-year-old Elizabeth Bush of Junction City on May 14, 1974. Bush, a Kansas State University student, had been working at a Milford Lake park when she was reported missing. Two days later, Bush was found dead. She had been stabbed 27 times. Pencek was a soldier stationed at Fort Riley at the time of the killing. A public hearing session Please see Denied, 10A

Health Department looking for grant money

Through a potential grant, the Geary County Health Department is hoping to join forces with local medical facilities to strengthen the local health care system and services provided. The department is taking the lead by requesting an $85,000 grant so they can link up with Fort Rileys Irwin Army Community Hospital and Konza Prairie Community Health Center. Department Administrator Pat Hunter recently discussed the grant with board of health members. Keep your fingers crossed that its funded so we can be able to start work-

Special to the Daily Union

Jim and Michele Brethour are the recipients of the 2013 Grassland Conservation award for Geary County and will be recognized during the Geary County Conservation Districts annual meeting Thursday. The award is given to those who strive to protect and maintain the Kansas tallgrass prairie and agricultural heritage, and is sponsored by the Geary County Conservation District. The legacy of conservation in the Brethour family goes back as least as far as Jims grandfather, Dr. George Brethour of Dwight. George purchased land near Dwight in the 1930s that included grassland as well as some cropped ground. The cropland (nearly 40 acres of it) was seeded back to native grass, and a pond was built through the Works Progress Administration. The WPA was one of the New Deal programs that provided work for unemployed Americans during the Great Depression years. George was recognized for his conservation efforts in 1955 with a Geary County Bankers Award. Recently, Jim enrolled the Dwight property in the USDA Grassland Reserve Program (GRP). The GRP is a voluntary conservation program that emphasizes support for working grazing operations, enhancement of plant and animal biodiversity, and protection of grassland under threat of conversion to other uses. I enrolled the land because I want to see it kept as prairie for the

future, Jim said. Jim has continued with the conservation traditions of the family on his home property south of Junction City. In 2002, Jim and Michele purchased a pasture adjoining their property Jim described as a mess. You couldnt see from one end to the other because of all the cedar trees, he said. There wasnt even enough grass to carry a fire. The property was enrolled in the USDA Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), which provided assistance to cut the cedar trees and purchase chemicals to control other types of brush. Many hours were spent cutting trees with a chain saw and spraying brush on a four-wheeler. Today, they are able to burn the pasture regularly. Jim believes fire is one of the keys to protecting the prairie from being overtaken by trees and brush. The prettiest kind of cedar tree is one on fire, Jim said. Jim runs some stocker cattle on his ground, and he has renters who run cattle on the rest of his land. They are good people, he said, emphasizing the importance of having renters who share his beliefs on taking care of the land. Jim and Michele live south of Junction City. Jim spent 32 years on Fort Riley before retiring. He now spends his time keeping up with spraying brush and thistles, helping neighbors during harvest, and enjoys fishing and hunting in his spare time.

Sen was hospitalized in Kolkata more than three weeks ago for treatment of a respiratory infection and died following cardiac arrest, said her daughter, Moon Moon Sen, who is also an actress.

Obama tightens reins on surveillance programs


AP White House Correspondent

WASHINGTON Tightening the reins on the nations sweeping surveillance operations, President Barack Obama on Friday ordered new limits on the way intelligence officials access phone records from hundreds of millions of Americans and moved toward eventually stripping the massive data collection from the governments hands. But Obamas highly anticipated intelligence recommendations left many key details unresolved, most notably who might take over as keeper of the vast trove of U.S. phone records. Final decisions on that and other major questions were left to the Justice Department and to intelligence agencies that oppose changing surveillance operations, and to a Congress that is divided about the future of the programs. If fully implemented, Obamas proposals would mark the most significant changes to the surveillance laws that were passed in reaction to the Sept. 11, 2011, terror attacks. While Obama has said he has welcomed the recent spying debate, its unlikely to have happened without the national and international backlash following a wave of leaks from former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden. For now, the phone records will continue to reside with the government. But the NSA will need to get approval from the secretive Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Court each time it wants to access the data, a more cumbersome process than currently required. Exceptions will be made in the event of a national security emergency, officials said. Responding to outrage overseas, Obama pledged on Friday to curb spying on friendly allied leaders and to extend some privacy protections to foreign citizens. The proposals appeared to ease some anger in Germany, which had been particularly incensed by revelations that the NSA had monitored the communications of Chancellor Angela Merkel. Despite the firestorm at home and abroad, Obama robustly defended the intelligence communitys role in keeping the nation safe. But he said the U.S. had a special obligation to ensure that its muscular spying apparatus was not trampling on civil liberties. The reforms Im proposing today should give the American people greater confidence that their rights are being protected, even as our intelligence and law enforcement agencies maintain the tools they need to keep us safe, he said during a speech at the Justice Department. Privacy advocates, who have pushed for ending the phone record collections altogether, criticized the presidents restrictions as insufficient. The intelligence community appeared publicly content with his plans. On Capitol Hill, the

Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., sit together on Friday before President Barack Obama spoke about National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance at the Justice Department in Washington.
response was decidedly mixed. A rare cross-section of lawmakers from both parties, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called for greater reforms. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, blamed the president for failing in the past to properly explain the importance of certain intelligence gathering practices. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who head their chambers intelligence committees, called on the president to send them specific legislation with his proposed changes. Obamas announcement capped a six-month White House review triggered by Snowdens flood of disclosures about the scope of U.S. spying. But by ordering further review of key issues, Obama ensured that his speech would hardly be the final word in the resurgent debate over balancing privacy and security. The most glaring omission in Obamas announcement was any recommendation on where Americans phone records should be kept if they are no longer housed by the government. A presidential review board recommended moving the data to the phone providers or a third party, but both options present obstacles. The phone companies strongly oppose the expense and potential liability of holding the data, and no credible third party option has emerged. Administration officials also raised the possibility of replacing the bulk phone collection program with new surveillance methods that would negate the need to store the data long-term. Obama ordered the Justice Department and intelligence community to report back to him with options within 60 days. If they propose housing the data with the phone companies or a third party, congressional legislation would almost certainly be needed, raising questions about how quickly lawmakers could reach an agreement, if at all. I think the odds are long that we can get it done in a timely way, said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., though he was largely supportive of the presidents proposals. Under Obamas plan, the government will no longer be able to gain access to phone records beyond two hops from the person they are targeting. That means the government cant examine records for someone who called someone who called someone who called the suspect. Privacy advocates said they were troubled that Obamas proposals did not go further. He seems to endorse amending bulk data collection but not ending it, said Anthony Romero, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union. The president cast the changes as a pre-emptive attempt to curb possible government abuse as new technologies give intelligence agencies the ability to round up more information more quickly. But he said there was nothing in the White House review that indicated that our intelligence community has sought to violate the law or is cavalier about the civil liberties of their fellow citizens. Obama mentioned Snowden and his disclosures in negative but measured language. The sensational way in which these disclosures have come out has often shed more heat than light, while revealing methods to our adversaries that could impact our operations in ways that we may not fully understand for years to come, he said. Anger with the U.S. after Snowdens revelations has been particularly strong abroad, especially when it was revealed that the Americans were monitoring the communications of friendly foreign leaders such as Merkel and Brazils President Dilma Rousseff. Obama said new guidelines will cut back on such monitoring, except when there is a compelling national security interest. The leaders of our close friends and allies deserve to know that if I want to learn what they think about an issue, I will pick up the phone and call them rather than turning to surveillance, said Obama, who also called on the Justice Department to look for ways to extend privacy protections to foreign citizens. The presidents assurances were welcomed by officials in Europe, though they cautioned that details of the plans still needed to be analyzed.

Yes, 20-somethings need health insurance

The following editorial appeared in the Kansas City Star on Thursday, Jan. 16:

hile overall enrollment in the insurance marketplaces designed under the Affordable Care Act was vigorous in December, more young and healthy consumers are needed to make the complex math of the health reform law add up. About 2.2 million Americans have now enrolled in health coverage through the new insurance exchanges. Thats a welcome number, considering the badly bungled rollout of, the online federal marketplace. The website is working much more smoothly now for enrollees, although a couple of the state-based sites still have issues. But more than half of the enrollees so far are in the 45- to-64-year-old age bracket. That group racks up higher medical costs than the 18- to 34-year-old demographic, which accounts for only about a fourth of the enrollment so far. Insurers say they need to have younger consumers in the pool to hold down the costs of policies. The shortage so far of the young healthies, as they are called, isnt necessarily a cause for panic. It makes sense that older people who depend on medical care would be the first to sign up. But more youthful consumers are needed before this years open enrollment period ends March 31. Foes of Obamacare have targeted young people with unhelpful messages, urging them not to sign up for insurance and pay a fine instead. Talk about bad advice. Many young consumers will find they are eligible for subsidies, enabling them to buy insurance at surprisingly low rates. Those who choose to opt out will be subject to a tax penalty, and theyll receive nothing for it. What they will receive is the full bill for any routine or emergency medical expense they may accrue. And a one-time trip to the emergency room for a sprained ankle, say can run into thousands of dollars. Considerable confusion continues to swirl around the health care law. Health and community groups should step up efforts to educate people, especially young consumers, about the exchanges.

People are more likely to kill when they have a gun

Commentary got angry because Oulson, who was sitting in front of him, was using his cellphone during previews before the film Lone Survivor started. Reeves, after asking him several times to stop, went into the lobby to complain to a theater employee about Oulson who was apparently communicating with his childs baby sitter. When Reeves returned, the two again exchanged words, and Oulson reportedly showered Reeves with popcorn. Reeves drew a .380-caliber handgun and shot Oulson in the chest. Oulsons wife was wounded because she reached for her husband as the shot was fired, the Tribune said. You know how the gun lobby always insists that the antidote to gun violence is to allow more properly trained citizens to carry guns everywhere inside nightclubs and schools and churches? Well, Reeves could hardly be better trained in the use of firearms. Hes a retired Tampa police captain and a former security officer for Busch Gardens. Reeves had a permit to carry a concealed weapon. (The chain that owns the movie house, Cobb Theaters, says its policy bans weapons.) Few gun owners would know more about gun safety. But that hardly helped Reeves control his temper. Human beings have a limitless capacity for irrational acts, bizarre confrontations, moments of utter craziness and that includes those of us who are usually mature, sane and rational beings. If we allow firearms everywhere, we simply increase the odds that one of those crazy moments will result in bloodshed. The Violence Policy Center (VPC) notes that 554 other people have been killed since May 2007 by people licensed to carry concealed weapons in incidents that did not involve self-defense. The examples we have collected in our Concealed Carry Killers database show that with alarming regularity, individuals licensed to carry concealed weapons instigate fatal shootings that have nothing to do with self-defense, said VPC Legislative Director Kristen Rand in a statement on the centers website. The facts notwithstanding, the National Rifle Association and its allies across the country are busy pressing friendly legislators to expand the wild frontier and permit firearms in ever more venues. The Georgia General Assembly, for one, is considering a measure to allow guns on the states college campuses. Thats a recipe for more stupid confrontations like the one that has landed a retired police officer behind bars, charged with homicide, and a husband and father dead.

ven though there is steadily accumulating evidence of the futility of criticizing the gun culture, certain episodes prod me to go there. One of those occurred last week, when an unarmed man was shot dead after assaulting a fellow movie patron with, ah, popcorn. This particular incident wasnt one of those that dominate newscasts, that summon President Obama to a press conference, that propel some members of Congress to insist on tighter gun control laws. It didnt pack the awful, gut-wrenching punch of the Newtown, Conn., massacre, in which 20 young children and six adults were gunned down by a psychopath. The power of this recent episode lies in its more mundane nature: Person with gun gets angry, loses control and shoots an unarmed person. Its a more common occurrence than gun advocates care to admit. And it contradicts several of the gun lobbys central arguments because it demonstrates that the proximity of firearms can change circumstances. It undermines that dumb and overused cliche, Guns dont kill people. People kill people. That may be true, but people are much more apt to kill when they have a gun. As it happens, this shooting occurred in Florida, where an ill-considered Stand Your Ground law has prompted many a trigger-happy bully to pull a gun and shoot a stranger (or, sometimes, an acquaintance). Curtis Reeves, 71, has been charged with seconddegree homicide in the death of Chad Oulson, 43, on Jan. 13, according to the Tampa Tribune. The newspaper reported that Reeves

Allowing American creativity to flourish


Special to The Daily Union

hen government grows too large, dependency replaces achievement. When I was in high school in Detroit, I had a job as a biology laboratory assistant. I spent a substantial amount of time in the greenhouse preparing botany experiments. I had acquired some seeds of an interesting plant and was anxious to use them to produce my own crop of these plants. I planted the seeds in a special container and kept enriching the soil and providing plenty of moisture and sunlight to enhance and accelerate the growth. I was very disappointed with the results and eventually abandoned the project, leaving the seeds in some soil behind the greenhouse to fend for themselves. To my surprise, one day when I was behind the greenhouse, I discovered that the seeds not only had germinated, but had produced a substantial crop without my help. I realize that no analogy is perfect and that many people will try to discredit this one, but in this case, I believe the seed is similar to America when it was a fledgling group of colonies. Many people came to America from other countries because they saw an opportunity to lead the life of their choice without a lot of interference from an overarching governing structure. Although there has been constant tension between those desiring a strong cen-

tral government that maintains control and order and those desiring maximum personal freedom as long as the rights of others are preserved, our country managed to thrive for many decades with an unprecedented level of autonomy for its citizens. People largely were left to their own devices and could experience great financial success or profound failure without the government playing a major role, other than ensuring the rights of the citizens to pursue their dreams. Government plays a vital role in the smooth functioning of a successful society. In our country, it was intended that the central government would provide such services as policing, military protection, roads, sanitation, public safety and similar things. In recent years, well-meaning government officials from both parties have determined that citizens need to be more closely managed because they are not capable of acting responsibly or planning for the future. Unfortunately, many of our citizens have grown accustomed to having others regulate their lives and now take little responsibility for their own well-being and that of their families. In the meantime, the government continues to grow at a rapid pace in order to meet the needs and expectations of the growing dependent class of citizens. This scenario is well known to historians, who realize that bureaucracy begets more bureaucracy. It is incredibly rare if not unheard of for bureaucratic agencies to conclude

that they have grown too big and need to be reduced. Its not that people who work in the government are bad people; rather, there is a natural tendency for government to grow. Our Founders feared this, and they included measures that we are now ignoring to restrain the growth and power of the central government. Just as I was meddling with the natural growth of those seeds, constant interference in Americans business by government stifles economic growth, creativity and entrepreneurship. The early settlers of this country had very limited government support, and yet prosperous towns sprang up all over the country. In many cases, entrepreneurs became very wealthy, and that wealth begat wealth and opportunities for others. Both free enterprise and government want to grow. The free-enterprise system creates wealth and grows the economy, but it is hindered when it is constantly manipulated by government interference and, I dare say, predation. Government growth saps the lifeblood of an expanding economy: money. It is like a spider sucking dry a fly caught in its web, getting ever bigger and requiring more victims to sustain its growth. If, instead of regulating and taxing to death the engine of growth, our government suddenly decided to leave it alone and allow it to be nourished by free-market forces, like the seed, it would explode with vibrant growth, jobs would return quickly,

and to the pleasant surprise of the government, its own coffers would fill because the tax base would be broadened. As an added bonus, the obligations of the government would lessen because there would be fewer citizens on the dole. This would make it possible to reduce and eventually eliminate the national debt. If our government could learn to create a nourishing environment for entrepreneurial endeavors rather than gorging itself on the fruits of their labor, a win-win situation would ensue. We have strayed far from the idea of independent life and personal responsibility for our populace. Many of our young people cannot even conceive of a world in which personal freedom reigns supreme. This does not mean we should not try to recapture the spirit of freedom and courage that characterized our rapid ascent to the pinnacle of world power. We the people must control the government before it attains the size and power that will preclude that possibility. It is time we begin discussing with friends, associates and neighbors our vision for our nation and how to realize it. This is not a Democratic or Republican issue. It is an issue of freedom in America for everyone and our progeny.

Chance to reconcile is lost forever

The Daily Union. Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014


Dennis the Menace


Dear Annie: My brother, William, recently passed away in his sleep. His passing came as a shock to everyone. He wasnt ill or showing any indication that something was wrong. We suspect it was a heart attack. However, the real tragedy of his passing is that William and his two children had been estranged for more than 19 years. When I called his son and daughter to inform them of their fathers passing, I could tell that they certainly felt the loss, and they also understood that any opportunity for reconciliation was now lost forever. All the years of anger and resentment suddenly appeared senseless. I do not know the reasons for the estrangement, but I can place blame on William, as well as his children, because all of them were adamant that they were right about the way they felt. I had discussions with my brother, but he was never ready to open up communication with his kids. I also met with my niece in the hope of persuading her to phone her father and try to talk things out. She didnt. And her brother declined to talk to me about it. Whatever wounds they had incurred had not healed, and there was no change of heart. With their fathers passing, they will now have to cope with their inaction for the rest of their lives. Please pass my letter along to your readers. Life is too short to harbor ill feelings and resentment, especially with loved ones. God gave us the blessing of children. Parents and children should not toss this blessing aside for what turns out to be in hindsight some perceived slight or miscommunication. Mourning My Brother Dear Mourning: Our sincere condolences for the loss of your brother. We hope your letter serves as a heartbreaking warning. People often think they have limitless time to fix relationships, but you never know what will happen. If someone is important to you, work it out. Talk it through. Get an unbiased third party to mediate if necessary, but dont let it fester until its too late. Dear Annie: I am a heating and cooling professional. In the past month, I have gone into many homes to repair their furnaces. Several times, the only problem I found was faulty batteries in their digital thermostats. Please inform your readers that spending five dollars and replacing their thermo-

Annies mailbox
stat batteries could save them an $80-$100 service call from their heating contractor. They should change these batteries every year. Perhaps next fall, when they are thinking about Thanksgiving or buying holiday gifts, they could pick up some extra batteries as a gift to themselves. Staying Warm in South Dakota Dear South Dakota: Thanks for the welcome information. We admit that replacing thermostat batteries did not occur to us, but we will pay more attention in the future, and we hope our readers will, as well. Dear Annie: Finally at Peace said she learned to appreciate those grandchildren who keep in touch and stop mourning the ones who dont. I, too, spent an inordinate amount of time grieving the loss of my nieces and nephew after my parents and my husband passed away. Over time, I decided to help with my churchs Sunday school and recently went to work for an after-school program. Im no longer grieving, and guess what? The last time I spoke to my nephew, it was a very positive experience. I agree with Finally that there are ways to involve yourself with children. They dont even need to be related to you. I meet and enjoy the company of many young people. And actually having a job allows me to earn extra money, as well. Also Finally at Peace

ARIES (March 21April 19). Maybe you dont have to lose to gain. Maybe youve been carrying around a void long enough and theres plenty of room for a wonderful treat to drop into your life. Go with that theory, and your attitude will attract it. TAURUS (April 20May 20). You cant help your feelings or your reaction to people. But you can control your exposure to them. Arranging for more good feelings has to do with being around the people who make you feel good. GEMINI (May 21June 21). Choosing the right medium for your message will be important. Should you text or call? Should you show up in person or create a mystery post on a website? Let your stellar sense of style dictate. CANCER (June 22July 22). Theres an old saying: Pay the piper. In your case, the piper may not have been invited to play in the first place, which will make paying him a bit challenging on a psychological level. LEO (July 23Aug. 22). Unconditional love seems like it should be everyones birthright, and yet it is a rare commodity. Can you give it? If you do, you wont ever be able to unlove the recipient of this gift. VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22). Stating what you want lets others know something about who you are. Thats why you sometimes prefer to keep your wants quiet. Youll be in a private mood, and youre still not sure whom you can trust. LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 23). Being creative gives you a lift unlike anything else now. Youll touch on the higher places of your psyche and stretch into the outer reaches of your physical capabilities, too. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Who wouldnt want to be smarter, stronger and richer? The drive to do so may feel urgent today, but it will lessen as the weekend progresses. Dont be fooled: Happiness is embracing who you are now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Your mind is like a pond. Do something to keep the water agitated, or the algae and mosquitoes will take over. Challenging activities and people will freshen your outlook. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Does this scene look a lot like yesterdays? Thats a plus. This is the new normal: the ordinary circumstances that will provide your best opportunity for doing extraordinary things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). True, you are similar to other members of the human race, and yet you are also quite unlike any being whos ever been created. Therefore, it would be wrong to compare yourself to the others. Dont do it. PISCES (Feb. 19March 20). Its better to be patient than to waste time and mental resources on speculation. This is a case where the best answer is: Wait and see. If you can accept that, you are wise indeed.

Herington woman arrested for Annual event allows opportunity possession of methamphetamine


to observe eagles, birds of prey


HERINGTON Dickinson County and Herington law enforcement agencies arrested a woman on Dec. 20 after locating 211 grams of methamphetamine inside her home. Officers arrested 25-year-old Kendra Dee Gable of Herington after finding the drugs and paraphernalia items consistent with the sale and use of methamphetamine inside her home, located at 119 N. Eighth St. The arrest was announced Thursday in
With their massive hooked bills and long broad wings, large birds of prey are often seen soaring the skies around Milford Lake. But today, anyone can get a detailed look at these creatures from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during Eagle Day at Milford Lake. The annual event, held at the Milford Nature Center, 3415 Hatchery Drive, allows visitors to learn more about animals such as the American Bald Eagle, owls and hawks. It gives a lot of people who dont normally have an opportunity to see wildlife, a chance to get up close and learn a lot about these really important animals, said Jennifer Mai, a naturalist for the Milford Nature Center. Theyre hard to find and sometimes dangerous. The event also gives people the opportunity to learn about the centers attractions and the state park. All of the animals that we have at the nature center are animals that are native

to Kansas, Mai said. Along with live animal programs inside the buildings, a guided bus tour will be available to view birds at the lake. Well have a scope set up so we can see them more easily, Mai said. The event hosted by the nonprofit organization is free for the public. We hope to see a lot of new faces, Mai said. The program also includes a tent with activities and crafts for children. For refreshments, Milford Friends is providing free popcorn and hot chocolate.

a press release from the Dickinson County Sheriffs Department. Gable was living with children inside the home when a search warrant was executed, the release stated. Gable was booked in the Dickinson County Jail for possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, possession of methamphetamine, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to obtain a Kansas drug tax stamp and two counts of aggravated endangerment of a child. The United States Attorneys Office has been consulted for possible federal prosecution in the case.

Handgun permits reach record

TOPEKA The number of Kansans who applied for concealed carry handgun permits last year exceeded the previous one-year record by 50 percent, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced. More than 24,000 Kansans applied for concealed carry handgun permits in 2013. Record numbers of Kansans are exercising their Second Amendment rights and taking advantage of the Kansas concealed carry law, Schmidt said. The 24,181 applications received by the Attorney Generals Concealed Carry Licensing Unit during the 2013 calendar year was more than had been received in any previous calendar year since the program began in 2006.

on Fort Riley and individual strengths of each community, such as education in Manhattan, land and housing in Wamego and workforce in Junction City. Some even mentioned an improved cooperation and communication among the communities, K-State research, transportation and the airport. Among the areas needing improvement according to the attendees included infrastructure, better trust between communities, a need to identify land uses, not waiting for something to happen before taking action and understanding

where the competition is, which is not between the communities. That one received a smattering of applause. Earlier in the afternoon, the retreat started with a quick discussion of the goals of the Flint Hills Regional Council and the impact Fort Riley has on the entire area. With a focus on why here, why now, topics included economic development, the power of regionalism and Fort Riley, community preparedness and the practice of regionalism. Regionalism is about doing together what we cant do alone, Flint Hills Regional Council Director Bill Clark told the group early in his presentation. Funds will be used for a coordinator to schedule meetings with officials. The position will be housed at the health department. Board member Larry Hicks was glad to see focus being placed on the needs of the rural community. This is something thats been needed for a long time, Hicks said about the

The people we serve dont look at governmental lines the way we do. This is all about taking care of those people we serve. The informational afternoon sessions focused on the goals and purpose of the Flint Hills Regional Council, Fort Rileys impact on the area and how to improve economic development. Clark focused on the fact the Regional Council can leverage elected officials, help share ideas, create larger planning efforts and views and allow others to assist. Our No. 1 priority is to build trust, he said. Your neighbors to the left and right and in front and behind, if we can each have each others interest in possible formation. Other communities are applying for the grant, but Hunter said the association with the military makes their application unique. Even if we dont get the grant, well be able to do some groundwork while we look for something else, Hunter said.

mind, thats what we are after. One of the key components discussed included the impact of Fort Riley on all of the Flint Hills region. Col. Frank Muth, the deputy commanding general of Fort Riley, talked about what he called the power of regionalism tied to the Army and more specifically, Fort Riley. Muth said there are two key factors for soldiers when considering a duty station housing and schools. Other factors, especially for single soldiers, appears to involve being part of a historic division in the Army, educational opportunities and the hunting and fishing. With 17,000 soldiers and a

total of 55,000 people involved with Fort Riley in some way, the economic impact is huge at $1.7 billion. That includes $1.2 billion in payroll, $252 million in supplies and contracts and $153 million in construction. Later in the afternoon, Dunbar focused on economic development. Her key takeaway was planning and ensuring those businesses that desire to locate to a community have land information available to them. She also said it is key the area diversifies where its money is coming from. You dont have a lot of exports, she said. We have some great things, K-State and manufacturing, but we need to diversify.

That base needs to grow and gather more people and keep them here. One piece that may help that is the National Bio and Agro-Defense facility, which officially will be located in Manhattan. That is a game changer for you, Dunbar said. They want to be here and they are big. Others are going to want to be next to them. We need to start thinking about what that means. Are we ready for that? This gathering came just days after Junction City area stakeholders gathered at a local retreat at the C.L. Hoover Opera House. That event was meant to focus on Junction City and its relations within the Flint Hills.

The grant is just an infrastructure grant, Hunter said. Its not for us to provide any services. Its just for us to sit and develop ideas and see what will best serve us.

Jays cant keep up with Manhattan, falling 63-43


Buck, Mariners finalize $1 million, one-year deal

Catcher John Buck and the Mariners have finalized a $1 million, one-year contract, giving Seattle another veteran option behind the plate. The agreement was struck earlier this week and announced Thursday. He can earn $3 million in performance bonuses, with half based on games started and half on plate appearances. The 33-year-old hit .215 with 15 homers and 60 RBIs in 101 games last year for the New York Mets, who traded him to Pittsburgh on Aug. 27. He batted .292 with two RBIs in nine games for the Pirates. Buck hit 63 homers over the last four seasons, fifth-most among catchers. Before joining the Mets, he played for Miami, Toronto and Kansas City. With the Mariners, hell be in the mix with Jesus Sucre and Humberto Quintero to back up Mike Zunino. Seattle designated outfielder Carlos Peguero for assignment to clear a spot on its 40-man roster.
The Junction City girls basketball team found Manhattans pace of play to be remarkably similar to the high-octane fashion first-year coach Nate Parks is trying to implement. But Friday, Manhattan simply ran it better. In a game filled with turnovers, the visiting Indians (7-1, 4-0) took full advantage of Junction Citys (2-4, 1-3) mistakes and the locals couldnt reciprocate in a 63-43 loss. Thats what were really trying to play and thats what we want our style to be, Parks said. We had some people that were not very confident in this game and didnt play as well as they can and that led to our turnovers. Junction City kept up with Manhattan for most of the game, but the Indians kept at it, slowly building the lead for the first three quarters of the game until they

held a 47-36 advantage entering the final period. But then the 11-point deficit felt too daunting for the Blue Jays. I think our lack of intensity and effort in the third quarter is what hurt us, Parks said. We had a lot of girls thinking it was out of reach. Junction City senior Kori Kamm fought off an illness all evening as she desperately tried to keep her team in the game. Kamm led the Blue Jays with 10 points in the game, but Manhattan caught on and held her scoreless in the fourth quarter. (Kamm) toughed it out for us, Parks said. They started figuring out we were trying to get the ball to her so we had a lot of times where they were collapsing, so I think thats what happened in the fourth quarter. The normally-automatic outside shooting of sophomore Kealee Rains fell off in the game. Please see Girls, 3B

Regents approve $17.5 million KU basketball dorms

The Kansas Board of Regents has approved a proposal to build a $17.5 million apartment complex that will house basketball players at the University of Kansas. The proposed apartments will house up to 66 university students, with nearly half being mens and womens basketball players. It is scheduled to open just south of Allen Fieldhouse for the 2016-17 school year. Kansas officials say the Fieldhouse Apartments will be financed by private donations and bonds, which will be paid off through rent from the apartments. The state Legislature will have to authorize the bonds. Each apartment will have a full kitchen, living and dining rooms, with lounges on each floor, two team meeting rooms, tutoring space and a multipurpose room. Construction is not scheduled to start for another year.

Hosmer, Hochevar, Bonifacio get deals with KC

Junction City senior Jonathan Wilds sat on the wooden benches of the mostly-cleared out Jays nest in the Shenk Gymnasium at Junction City High School Friday. Changed from his uniform into jeans and a hoodie raised over his hair, he wasnt the JC 32 watching remaining people MHS 35 who stood chatting in small groups on the gym floor. Instead, he replayed his final shot of the game against Manhattan. With Junction City trailing 33-32 and the clock rapidly running out, junior guard Tanner Lueker passed the ball to Wilds on the wing in front of the Blue Jays bench. He dribbled around the arc, trying to find some separation from the Manhattan defender who stuck to him like a bead of sweat. With the final buzzer nearing, Wilds rose up and tried to square his chest to the hoop but his body kept drifting through the air. He launched the ball toward the hoop and missed with 1.6 seconds left. Junction City quickly fouled on the inbounds pass, but Manhattan (6-2, 3-1) sank both free throws, handing the Blue Jays (4-4, 2-2) a 35-32 loss. Really, I cant believe I airballed it, Wilds said. I shouldnt have taken the shot, I shouldve taken it straight to the rack but I wont let it take me down. Trailing by one with 20 seconds left, Junction City coach Pat Battle drew up a play to try and get the ball down low to senior Semaj Johnson for what was supposed to be an easy two.

Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Royals agreed to one-year deals Friday with first baseman Eric Hosmer, right-hander Luke Hochevar and utilityman Emilio Bonifacio to avoid going to arbitration. Hosmer, who made just $528,250 last season, received the biggest bump to $3.6 million with a $50,000 bonus if he makes his first All-Star team. Hochevar will make $5.21 million while being eligible for up to $400,000 in incentives, and Bonificio will make $3.5 million. The Royals agreed with lefthanded reliever Tim Collins on a one-year deal worth $1,362,500 on Thursday. That leaves only All-Star closer Greg Holland, fellow relief pitcher Aaron Crow and outfielder Justin Maxwell as their unsigned arbitration-eligible players. The deadline for teams and players to exchange contract figures was Friday. Arbitration hearings begin in February. Hosmer, who endured an awful sophomore slump in 2012, is coming off a bounce-back year in which he hit .320 with 17 homers and 79 RBIs while playing in 159 games. He also won his first Gold Glove while helping Kansas City to an 86-76 finish, its best since the 1989 season. The Royals control Hosmer for three more seasons through arbitration, but most people believe they will try to sign him to a longterm deal before he reaches free agency. General manager Dayton Moore has routinely declined to comment on the status of such negotiations. Hochevar, who made $4.56 million, is due to become a free agent Please see Royals, 3B

Junction Citys Semaj Johnson (24) blocks the shot of Manhattans Alex Stitt Friday in Junction City High schools Shenk Gym.
But like most of the night, offensive miscommunication quickly threw the plan to the wind. We had the wrong guy set the screen, which left us scrambling for something there at the end, Battle said. And it wasnt the best look, but our player did what he had to do. So Wilds, who hit a last-second shot to defeat Topeka High on the same hoop three nights earlier, took it upon himself to make something out of the chaos.

Tulsa offensive coordinator will not be retained

Tulsa football coach Bill Blankenship says offensive coordinator Greg Peterson will not return next season. Blankenship praised Peterson on Thursday, but said he thinks it is best that a change be made. Peterson spent three seasons as offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach at Tulsa after serving as offensive coordinator at Northern Colorado. Peterson has also coached at Colorado State, Washington State, Kansas State and Nebraska Wesleyan. No timetable was set for naming Petersons replacement.

ABILENE The streak was in serious jeopardy. For 23 consecutive dual meets, stretching all the way back to 2011, the Junction City wrestling team left the mat victorious. However, Thursday night in Abilene, the Blue Jays fell into an early 27-0 hole. No matter how much the deficit grew, Junction City never counted itself out.

Jake Bazan put the Blue Jays on the board with a win in his 138pound match. Bazan battled even with Abilenes Blake Anguiano in the first period before finally taking a lead in the second. But a win wouldnt be enough Junction City needed the six points from a pin and needed them fast.

Smart vs Wiggins as Oklahoma St. visits Kansas


Associated Press
LAWRENCE Its been a few months since Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins and Oklahoma State star Marcus Smart stood on the floor of the Sprint Center and posed for some fairly awkward photographs. It was during the Big 12s annual media day in Kansas City, shortly before the start of the season. The two favorites for player of the year were paired up for some promotional pictures just a few minutes after Smart said Wiggins had yet to deserve his considerable hype. A lot of people are saying hes the best player now in college basketball, Smart said then. All Im saying is how can you be the best player in something you havent even played yet? Well, both have had chances to show everyone what they can do. Theyll get a chance to show each other when Smart leads the ninth-ranked Cowboys into Allen Fieldhouse to face Wiggins and No. 15 Kansas on Saturday in the first of two regular-season showdowns. A lot of people took their own opinions to that statement I made, Smart said this week. Im not really here to talk about that. This team has a lot on their minds, a lot on their plate to get ready for Saturday against a great team and a great coach and a great crowd. Smart and Wiggins have both burnished their credentials this season. Smart is averaging 17.9 points, and 22 points and nearly 11 rebounds over his last three games. He had 39 points in a win over Memphis earlier this season, and is the biggest

reason Oklahoma State (15-2, 3-1 Big 12) has been among the nations most consistent teams. The thing that amazes me about him is he impacts an entire program from a personality standpoint, said Kansas coach Bill Self, who watched Smart have two of his best games against the Jayhawks last season. Hes been great in that regard. Wiggins, meanwhile, is averaging 15.8 points and more the six boards a game. And the nations No. 1 overall recruit a year ago has excelled in the most high-profile games, his scoring average spiking to nearly 20 points when the Jayhawks (12-4, 3-0) have faced another ranked team. Extremely talented, said Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford. One of the best finishers in all of basketball when it comes to fast break. And I said all of basketball. Im including now, the next level, anybody. Theres probably not 10 other players even in the NBA that can finish on the break like he can finish. Hes special. Leave the platitudes to the coaches, though. Smart has had his say on

Make it a Great day, Make it GreatLife

Kansas guard Andrew Wiggins shoots against Kansas State in Lawrence, Jan. 11.

Orlin Wagner The Associated Press

Wiggins and Wiggins certainly heard him. Its just someones opinion. It doesnt mean anything, Wiggins said of those comments back at media day. When someone says something, and I dont really care for the person, they dont influence me or nothing like that. It doesnt matter what he says. Even though they dont really play the same position Smart is a prototypical guard, Wiggins a lanky forward theres still a good chance theyll match up defensively on Saturday. That should offer college hoops fans quite the treat. They struggled at the beginning of the season, but theyre coming on. Theyre a young team, but theyre a good team, Smart said. Were going to have to bring our A game. The Cowboys certainly brought it last season. Smart scored 25 points and teammate Markel Brown rained down 3-pointers in an 85-80 victory that not only ended the Jayhawks nationleading 18-game win streak but also their 33-game winning streak at the Phog. And when the buzzer sounded, and silence filled the old gym, the precocious Smart celebrated by doing a cartwheel and a backflip on the field house floor. I watched it on tape, Self said with a grin, and I thought, What beautiful form! I thought he tucked just at the right time and got full extension. It was very impressive. You can bet Self made sure the rest of his team watched it on film, too. I just know after they won, there was a big celebration their team had, Wiggins said this week. We all know its very important. Its a big game.

Junction Citys Millie Ybarra wrestles against Abilenes Tanner McGivney in the 106pound match at Abilene on Thursday.

period of his 160-pound match. But he couldnt drop them down as time expired and his opponent lived to fight another round. The result didnt change. Millsap quickly gained control in the second period and 3:15 into the match, forced his foes shoulders to the floor for the pin. He stayed in pretty good position, Millsap said. That was my main goal of the match, to pin him. I wasnt really looking to put a bunch of points on the board, my goal was to go out there and put him on his back. Then Jeryl Denton, returning to the mat for the first time this season after recovering from an serious injury, shook off any rust early. He aggressively grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first period. Once again, the Blue Jay wrestler knew a simple win wouldnt be enough and he labored relentlessly to earn a pin, making the score 32-23. Denton said it was all about the team. You get one pin down in a match and you just start rolling and the mentality is like Im ready to do this, Im ready to get out there, he said. Really, youve just got to get the ball rolling and it took a while to do that but when we did, it was

done. Micah Felton wasted no time in his 182-pound match, pulling the Blue Jays within reach, 32-29. Felton was thrilled to help keep the streak alive. I got in there, got arm control, got that chicken wing and kept running and running and running it toward his head till I got him on the shoulders, he said. Devonte Wilson, winner of his division in the previous two tournaments, then put Junction City on top for good in the 195-pound match. After Abilene forfeited in the 220pound division, freshman Kayne Hutchinson stepped up and earned a pin in the 285-pound match. The most impressive part was Millsap, Denton, Felton, Wilson and Hutchinson were each wrestling above their normal weight. Freshman Kamari Smith stepped into the lineup as a 12th-hour substitution in the 152-pound division. He scored the first of seven consecutive wins to close out the meet. Junction City competes in the Basehor-Linwood tournament Friday and Saturday. I got the jitters out and Im ready for the weekend and for my weight, Denton said. I was unranked, they took me off the rankings and everybody thinks Im not wrestling so, Im going to go out there and show them whats up. This is Jeryl Denton, Im here to wrestle.

through and he had a great game against Hays. I think hes really a second half player, fourth quarter, we can count on him to make big shots and keep us in the game. He hit two big 3-point shots to open the fourth quarter, bringing Junction City back from a sevenpoint deficit to trail 28-25 early in the final period. Neither team could sink a bucket to start the game; instead the two teams were locked in a furious defensive struggle that wouldnt relent for the entire 32 minutes of the contest. Thornton finally broke through at the midpoint of the first quarter. He drilled a trey to give Junction City a 3-0 lead and went on to score all eight of the Blue Jays first quarter points before finishing with a team-high 13. It was a great environment, Thornton said. It was my senior year, last chance to play Manhattan in my own backyard so I just came out and was focused, got my mind right and then played my game. My teammates found me open shots and I knocked them down. Junction Citys defense buckled down in the second quarter, limiting Manhattan to just three points as the Blue Jays entered the half with a 17-14 lead. But then the locals offense sputtered to a halt coming out of halftime and Manhattans Alex Stitt nailed two big three-point shots, one barely beating the buzzer at the end of the quarter to give Manhattan a 26-19 lead, the largest separation either team created all game. Junction City tips off the Valley Center tournament Thursday at 3:15 p.m. against Olathe Northwest. Its not for a lack of trying, we just struggled to score, Battle said, We had a lot of good looks, we had shots rim in and out and thats going to happen in a big game. Weve just got to do a better job executing on the offensive end to win these things.

She scored eight points, but only converted once from beyond the arc. Sophomore AKia Fain scored seven points and freshman Darja Russell dropped nine on the Indians. Sophomore Abryana Dixon saw a significant increase in her time on the court due to injury and foul trouble.

Continued from Page 1B

She stepped up, playing up top in the Blue Jays full-court press and creating havoc in Manhattans backcourt. But Junction City couldnt convert its opportunities. The team travels to Emporia on Tuesday. Weve just got to get better as a program overall, Parks said. We dont have the skilled players to knock down the shots when we need to so thats going to take some time and some confidence.

after this season. The first overall pick in the 2006 draft, Hochevar struggled as a starter but flourished in the bullpen last season, going 5-2 with a 1.92 ERA in 58 games. Bonifacio, who made $2.6 million last season, arrived in a midseason trade from Toronto. While he hit just .243 for the year, Bonifacio hit .285 with th e Royals, and his ability to play second, third and shortstop along with the outfield made him a valuable utility player. Bonifacio was in line to become the starting second baseman until the Royals signed veteran Omar Infante to $30.25 million, fouryear contract in December. I like our team, Moore said in a recent interview. I feel very good about the way we finished the second half last season, and the chemistry in the clubhouse is good. The Royals have been aggres-

sive this offseason, signing lefthander Jason Vargas to a $32 million, four-year deal to make up for the likely loss of right-hander Ervin Santana in free agency, and trading reliever Will Smith to the Brewers for outfielder Norichika Aoki. Those moves, along with raises given to arbitration-eligible players, will likely push the Royals payroll past $90 million for the first time. Thats led to speculation that Moore would seek to cut payroll through a trade designatred hitter Billy Butler, who is owed $8.5 million, has been bandied about in what Moore downplayed as hot stove rhetoric. Were not under any directive to cut, Moore said, but at the same time you want to put together a team where players can be utilized well. My main focus is put the best team we can on the field, work to gel the current pool of players in a way that creates synergy and togetherness and a winning team, and we certainly have financial people who remind me of where we are.

Doctors brought X-rays to JC in the early 1900s


Museum Musings Submitted Photo

he doctors of Geary County have been well documented in the past, particularly ODonnell, Smiley, and of course, Brinkley, but what was surprising to me as I read more on the topic was the large number and range of doctors who practiced in such a condensed area. Perhaps it was an antiquated idea I had in my head from watching too many westerns as a child, but it was so easy to imagine the one, or maybe two, kindly doctors that traveled around the whole of the city to administer relief. But this was not the case for Junction City and its surrounding areas. In fact, at the turn of the 20th century, Junction City boasted over a dozen doctors at least two who were well respected female doctors a handful of dentists, and surgeons who specialized in anesthesia, eye care, and in 1897 the art of the x-ray. Dr. D. J. Moyer, the towns oldest physician, took special care to keep informed on all the latest medical advances, like the x-ray. He was known for taking frequent trips back east, and even traveling to Europe, in order to make sure his patients had the most modern care possible. Which is why it probably shouldnt have been a surprise when, in November of 1897, The Daily Union reported that Dr. Moyer had purchased an X-ray machine. At the time, the X-ray was the most modern of inventions. The practice had only

Shown is an early x-ray machine circa 1890-1900

been discovered in 1895 by a German university professor, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen. It was an easy procedure to recreate with the current technology of the time and the X-ray spread quickly among scientists and doctors. But in 1897, the X-ray was still a foreign idea to the Geary County community. The Junction City X-ray was only the third in the entire state and there was widespread skepticism over

the science behind the device. After all, how could a machine see through solid flesh to your bones? So, in order to assure the community that the X-ray did indeed do what it promised, Drs. Moyer and Yates offered free trials at their clinic. The Daily Union took part in the free trials and printed this assurance for their readers: If anyone has doubts as to being able to see through his hand, a trial will clear up

any such doubts. Two inches of cotton-batting or an inch of board cut no figure. The bones of the hand show up plainly just the same. It is so clearly shown that one can see the joints of the fingers and hand so plainly that the hand very much resembles a skeleton. One can see the shoulder joint move just about as plainly. So, despite any hesitancy the community may have

initially had for the X-ray, by December of the same year, people were traveling into Junction City in order to have their bones set using the X-ray. The Daily Union reported one event when Mrs. D.B. Jenkins of White City brought her daughter Gracie to have her broken arm set. Little Gracie Jenkins was able to return home with her arm set straight and the Union declared The machines work was most gratifying and satisfactory.

race-worthy Corvette, a sumptuous Mercedes C-Class and other glitzy new models caught the eye at this years North American International Auto Show, but larger trends in the auto industry were also on display. Fords aluminum-clad F-150 shows us that automakers are figuring out how to improve fuel economy and still give Americans the big vehicles they want. Porsches 911 Targa and pocket rockets from Volkswagen and Subaru demonstrate that buyers still love performance cars, no matter what their budget. And new mainstream cars like the Honda Fit and Chrysler 200 will have to work hard to compete in a market thats not growing as fast as it once did. Here are five things we learned at the auto shows media days this week. Infiniti, Kia, Volkswagen, Nissan, Audi, Mini, Volvo, Honda. These and other automakers showed concepts, which are experimental cars that test design ideas and new technology. Toyotas FT-1, a sinewy sport car, reflects the companys desire to shed its stodgy reputation and build cars that make your heart pound. The clean, white Volvo XC coupe, made of highstrength steel, shows that Scandinavian safety can be sexy. Volkswagens BlueMotion concept a souped up Passat shows technical prowess, deactivating cylinders from its fourcylinder engine to get an estimated 42 mpg on the highway. Some concepts are just trial balloons. Hondas space age FCEV barely looks drivable; its just testing the design limits for Hondas new fuel cell cars. Others, like Kias radical GT4 Stinger sports car which would take the Korean carmaker in a whole new direction may be headed to showrooms. The mere fact that the show is packed with concepts is a good sign. During the recession, budgets for these dream cars dried up. Automakers are clearly comfortable spending more, said Jessica Caldwell, a senior analyst with Its become a buyers market. And the industry knows it. Automakers and analysts expect total U.S. sales between 16 million and 16.5 million this year. Thats a return to prerecession levels and a natural place for sales to be, based on population and other factors. But theres a catch: The easy sales have already been made. Jim Lentz, Toyotas North American CEO, says the big sales gains at least 1 million a year for four straight years were driven by pent-up demand from people who held on to their cars through the recession and needed new ones. But that demand is drying up; many are forecasting industry sales gains of 500,000 or less this year. I call it a levelling off, Lentz said. Were going to rely more on the fundamentals of a strengthening economy that will grow the market. That could be a boon for car buyers. Automakers could offer better lease deals and other incentives get their share of sales. But that can quickly spiral into an expensive game for carmakers. Theyre eating their young if theyre not careful, said Larry Dominique, president of ALG, an automotive data company.

The Kia GT4 Stinger concept debuts during media previews Monday during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.


Glimpse of the future

Let make a deal

At past shows, nobody talked much about what the cars were made of. The widespread use of aluminum in the body of Fords new F-150 pickup truck changed that. Alloy is now a buzz word. The F-150 whose body is made of 5000 and 600 series aluminum alloys had everyone talking about materials. Toyota pointed out the aluminum hood of the hybrid Prius. Honda said it uses magnesium for steering beams. The electric BMW i3 is made of carbon fiber. Volvo promises highstrength boron steel. In the future, expect even more discussion about materials, their properties, their cost and their benefits or drawbacks. The carbon fiber used on the hood of the Corvette Stingray, for example, is half the weight of aluminum, says chief engineer Tadge Juechter. But carbon fiber also has drawbacks. Its pricey and takes longer to form into parts hardly ideal for highproduction models. And steel still has its place. Beneath the aluminum, the F-150s frame is made of high-strength steel. Its about choosing the right material for the right purpose, said Art St. Cyr, vice president of product planning for American

Everyones an engineer

Using new materials does more than just shed weight. It also debunks the widely held theory that cars and trucks will have to get smaller, or use batteries or other alternative power, in order to meet strict federal gas mileage requirements. The expectation used to be that youd have to get the green version, the eco model, Dominique said. But now everyones baking it in normally. Thats good news for the industry. Vehicles have quietly been getting bigger for the past few years, to the point that compacts are as big as older midsize cars. The Audi A4, for example, has gained 6 inches in the last decade, and its little sibling, the A3, has stretched to take its place. The A3 sedan is nearly the same size as the A4 was in 2004. At the same time, U.S. consumers are also choosing bigger vehicles, at least while gas prices are steady. Car sales grew at less than half the pace of SUVs and crossovers last year, according to Autodata Corp. Fords gamble on aluminum suggests those trends could continue despite the governments mandate that fleets meet a 54.5 mpg average by 2025. Those fuel economy mandates once appeared to signal the death of sporty cars. But of the 50-plus new models being introduced in Detroit, more than a dozen are performance cars. Americans now have more discretionary income and a growing appetite for fast, maneuverable cars. Chevrolet unveiled two race-worthy versions of the Corvette, each with a stag-

gering 625 horsepower V8, while Volkswagen pulled the cover off the 290-horsepower Golf R compact. Subaru unveiled a highspeed version of the already powerful WRX small car. Lexus showed its 450-horsepower RC F. Kia omitted the radio from its 315-horsepower GT4 Stinger because it thinks drivers will prefer the sound of the engine. The industry isnt just showing off. Sports cars take a lot of research and development time and money, but the payoff to automakers comes when technology finds its way into mainstream cars, said Stifel auto analyst Jamie Albertine. Chrysler has a sporty version of its new 200 midsize car, a segment known for more pedestrian rides. And BMW added M sport versions to its 3-Series sedan and 4-Series coupe. The icing on the cake: The cars have smaller but better engines than the snarling V8 gas guzzlers of the past. Consumers have pounded the table on it, Alber-

tine said. They dont want to sacrifice the get-up-andgo. Most people wont test the cars limits, but they do merge onto highways and accelerate to avoid trouble, Albertine said. You dont want to put your foot to the floor and wait 10 seconds. Theres an element of safety to it.

In DCs Justice League, an unlikely leader

By The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA Lex Luthor is sporting a new title on his business card: Hero. And, the way things are going in the wake of the Crime Syndicates mayhem on earth, the erstwhile corporate titan and super herowary skeptic may find himself leading the Justice League, too. That would be much to the chagrin of some of its members, notably Superman whose visage is not among those featured on the cover of Justice League No. 30 due out April 23 and illustrated by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado. Is he going to lead the Justice League? It depends on whom you ask on the team. Certainly, he thinks he should, said series writer Geoff Johns, who said the Justice League will have to rebuild its reputation and its dynamic among members Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Captain Marvel, Cyborg and former Flash rogue Captain Cold. Hero and leader are new sobriquets for Luthor, a man better known for his wariness about costumed crime-fighters and superpowered champions. Johns, who is DC Entertainments chief creative officer, said this week that development will make for intriguing and unsettling events as the super group finds its place anew in a world wracked by the alternatedimension Crime Syndicate from Earth-3 and the mayhem they wrought in the vast Forever Evil event that started in September and is heading toward its final conclusion this spring. The Justice League is going to go through a lot of changes, obviously, in the wake of Forever Evil, he explained this week. A lot of the blame can be put on their shoulders for what has happened: They were infiltrated and they fought each other and that led to the unleashing of the Crime Syndicate and the evil that took over the world. But amid the takeover, and the field day for the villains that went with it, Luthor seized the opportunity to become leader of the socalled Injustice League and a rallying point to reclaim the world from the Crime Syndicates Ultraman, Owlman, Superwoman, Johnny Quick and Atomica, Deathstorm and Power Ring. Johns said readers will see the post-Forever Evil world with the lines being a little bit blurry between good and bad and seeing what kind of heroes it will take to not just protect the world, but defend the world. While its not going to be a Luthor 3x5.5 8/13/02 4:41 PM Page 1 Legion, the teams dynamic is going to be tested with his presence and, Johns said, so, too, will he find himself facing different pressures commensurate with his new position.

Idaho rep tackles faith healing after child deaths

By The Associated Press
BOISE, Idaho After several recent child deaths, an Idaho lawmaker wants to follow Oregons lead and require parents to seek medical help for kids suffering from potentially fatal conditions even if their religion frowns on it. Since 2009, numerous children of members of the Followers of Christ in Marsing, Idaho, have died of treatable causes, according to their autopsy reports. Many children are buried at a cemetery overlooking the Snake River that is favored by the church. The church, with locations in Idaho, California and Oregon, relies on faith healing, not medicine, to help sick members. Democratic Rep. John Gannon of Boise says Idahos existing faith-healing exemptions for injury-to-a-child crimes should be updated. He has support from Linda Martin, an Oregon woman who left the church in Idaho decades ago and has returned this week to champion the changes. These children need a chance to grow up, Martin told The Associated Press Thursday. According to an autopsy from June 2012, 15-year-old Arrian Jade Granden died after suffering from food poisoning. After three days of vomiting, her esophagus ruptured. Preston John Bowers, who was 22 months old, died in March 2011 of pneumonia, according to his autopsy report. He had been suffering from a fever for days. That same month, 14-yearold Rockwell Alexander Sevy died after a two-week illness. As time went on, he began having more shortness of breath and the rattle in his chest got worse, wrote Canyon County Coroner Vicki Degeus-Morris, concluding pneumonia. Pamela Jade Eells, 16, died in November 2011, again of pneumonia, according to the Payette County coroner. None of their parents returned phone calls or could be reached for comment. In Idaho, someone found guilty of felony injury to a child causing conditions likely to produce great bodily harm or death or permitting a child to be injured can get a decade behind bars. But the law has this exemption: Treatment by prayer or spiritual means alone shall not for that reason alone be construed to have violated the duty of care to such child. Gannons proposal would lift that exemption whenever a childs medical condition may cause death or permanent disability. Medical treatment for physical harm to a child should supersede every other consideration, Gannon said. In 2011, Oregon legislators trimmed a faith-healing exemption, expanding a 1999 law that eliminated the defense from some charges, including manslaughter. That change came as Followers of Christ members there were prosecuted and convicted following child deaths. In Idaho, Gannon wants to introduce his bill in the Legislature, but theres already resistance. Rep. Christy Perry, R-Nampa, said he fears the bill tramples on religious freedoms and parental rights. This is about religious beliefs, the belief God is in charge of whether they live, and God is in charge of whether they die, said Perry, whose district is not far from the Followers Idaho church. This is about where they go for eternity. But Rep. Rich Wills, R-Glenns Ferry and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee where Gannons bill could be introduced, said he is willing to consider updating faith-healing exemptions. Im concerned any parent would put their religious beliefs ahead of child welfare, Will said. It just stuns me. On Thursday, Ada County Coroner Erwin Sonnenberg recalled autopsies of numerous Followers children. In some instances, routine intervention antibiotics here, an appendectomy there could have saved them, he said. He has also been to Followers homes and seen them cry over lost children. These are great people, Sonnenberg said. They love their children. While he favors limits on the faith-healing shield to prevent abuse, Sonnenberg said he isnt convinced somebody with beliefs so powerful they spurn medical care for their children would take heed. At times, you sit back and wonder, Is my faith that strong? he said. I understand the faith side of it. But it seems like at least let your kids grow up, when it comes down to it, and decide for themselves.

GOP senator again pushing religious freedom bill

By The Associated Press
PHOENIX A Senate committee has given initial approval to a bill allowing people to claim their religious beliefs led them to refuse service to gays or other groups. The bill pushed by Republican Sen. Steve Yarbrough also broadened a bill that was a vetoed last year to include corporations and other entities. Civil rights groups are opposed to the bill, saying it will allow discriminatory actions by businesses. Yarbrough says his push was prompted by a New Mexico case where the state Supreme Court allowed a gay couple to sue a photographer who refused to record their wedding. Yarbrough cut a provision in last years bill that allowed lawsuits by religious groups over potential violations of their rights.

Living in the country seminars
Field & Garden room at the 4-H Building. While Id encourage you to spend the entire morning at these informative sessions, you are welcome to show up for just one or two if those are the ones that catch your interest. Lets preview the presentations that are scheduled for next Saturday. The first session at 9 a.m. in the east room is Keeping horses on a few acres. One of the common reasons that I find for people wanting to live in the country is so that they can have horses. Horses arent as easy keepers as some folks lead you to believe and they can turn small grassy paddocks into dirt lots really quick. K-State Research and Extension Dickinson County Ag and Natural Resources Agent Laura Marks will be presenting a great program on how to manage your horse(s) to maximize your enjoyment, the horses health, and causing the least amount of negative impact to the land. Laura has a lot of experience working with horses and you will find her presentation helpful and interesting. From 10 a.m. to noon we will have a super session on beginning beekeeping. Everyone has heard a lot about the problems honeybees have been facing across the country, and many gardeners and homeowners have developed a recent interest in keeping a hive or two of bees. Being a former beekeeper I can tell you that it is a fun and fascinating hobby, but can entail a fair amount of work. Sharon Dobesh-Beckman, beekeeper and K-State faculty member, will have an awesome hands-on session so you can see much of the beekeeping equipment that it takes and have a lot of one-on-one time with Sharon. Meanwhile, in the dining room, we have three great sessions planned. Starting at 9 a.m. Jason Hartman with the Kansas Forest Service will be presenting a session on fireproofing the rural residence. Weve all seen some of the catastrophes with wildfire in the western US, and we are not without our risks here. Jason will explain things you can do to minimize the wildfire risk to your residence. At 10 a.m., Lisa Davies with the Geary County Health Department will discuss how to manage your private water well. While rural water districts are more common than they once were, there are still a lot of folks who depend on their own water well. Lisa will discuss how to keep it safe and functioning properly. At 11 a.m. we will have a program on radon in Kansas homes. January is Kansas Radon Action Month and Brian Hanson, Radon Program Coordinator for K-State will discuss how this naturallyoccurring gas can cause problems in our homes. Geary County is in an area known to have elevated levels and everyone should check their home regularly. I hope to see a lot of you at the Country Living Expo next Saturday. If you have any questions give me a call at the Extension Office, (785) 238-4161, or email me at cotte@ksu. edu.

ou can tell that I am a farm girl. I know the weather forecast for the next week and plan my days accordingly. So it should come as no surprise that on Monday, I already knew the weekend forecast is fantastic. With that in mind, I plan to load up the kids on Saturday for Eagle Days at the Milford Nature Center and make a point to take a long, brisk walk in the afternoons. The weather is perfect for it and my body is telling me I need to get back into a walking routine balanced with healthier food choices. Not quite a New Years resolution, but rather a post-holiday reality. You may be thinking about walking, too. Walk Kansas season is right around the corner March 16 through May 10. In its 13th year, Walk Kansas is once more being sponsored by K-State Research and Extension. How does the program work and how can you get involved? Co-workers, family members, friends and neighbors form teams of six people who will track minutes of physical activity and food choices during the eight week challenge. Led by a team captain, each team identifies a goal, or challenge, it wants to reach. Each team member keeps track of and reports their weekly walking amounts, as well as their fruits and vegetables consumption. They report these to their team captain so that a running total can be maintained for the team.

Walk Kansas season

Living Resourcefully Prizes and recognition are given to teams on a weekly basis as well as for the eight-week program, as a whole. It isnt too early to start thinking about who you would like to have on your team. Team packets will be available starting on Jan. 27 and can be picked up at the Geary County Extension office at 119 E. ninth Street, or you can print off the materials at www. All team registrations and individual participation forms need to be submitted to the extension office on or before Feb. 25. The cost is $7 per person for the eight week program. Take the first step toward a healthier lifestyle by joining us for Walk Kansas 2014.

through the Dietary Guidelines for Americans provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Look at any additional changes you might want to make before you get started with the Walk Kansas program. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend eating and physical activity patterns that promote overall health. While the guidelines are based on the most current research, these recommendations also reflect food preferences, cultural traditions, and customs of the many and diverse groups living in the United States. Here are the highlights. Enjoy your food, but eat less. Most Americans eat more calories (energy) than they use through daily activities and movement. Start by being aware of what, and how much, you are eating and begin to replace foods higher in calories with nutrient-dense foods and beverages. Nutrient-dense foods offer a high amount of nutrient content to the calories they contain. Think of nutrient-dense foods as being opposite of empty-calorie foods. Skim milk, for example, is a nutrient-dense beverage rich in calcium and eight ounces contains 90 calories. Soda is an empty calorie beverage 105 calories in eight ounces and no nutrients. Avoid oversized portions. Research shows that we eat and drink more when given larger portions. Start to downsize serv-

ings by eating off a smaller plate, and stick with regular size meals when eating out. Say no to offers to supersize your meal. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. Go for variety and color when choosing these foods. Divide the other half of your plate between a protein and grain source. Switch to fat-free or lowfat milk and milk products. If this is a challenge for you, make the switch gradually. Compare sodium in foods such as soup, bread, and frozen meals choose

foods with lower numbers. Most Americans are consuming too much sodium and the guidelines get specific on numbers. The average American has a daily sodium intake of 3,400 mg. The recommendation is 1,500 mg for most people, and not more than 2,300 mg. Drink water instead of sugary drinks. A major source of added sugars in the diets of Americans is soda, energy drinks, and sports drinks up to 36 percent of added sugar. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services jointly create each edition of the dietary guidelines. They are revised and

published every five years. For more information, visit: Now that you have the information, you can make a plan. Start now by taking steps toward a healthier lifestyle. Check with your doctor, learn what you need to adjust, and walk with us in Walk Kansas 2014.

No one, including myself, should dive into a new physical activity plan without having a checkup from their doctor and doing a little reading to help them get started in a way that is both healthy and researchbased. Make sure you have the doctor visit checked off of your pre-Walk Kansas checklist. Here are some reminders about healthy living

Next steps for a healthier you

Live, laugh and love in 2014 A

new year with new opportunities. Make this one of the best years of your life. Forget about all the broken New Years resolutions you have made to yourself and live, laugh, and love in 2014. Live with being thankful for every moment that you are gifted to be alive. We all need to know that we are making a difference in every persons life that we come in contact with on a daily basis. Teach your children how important it is to live taking advantage of opportunities to grow, learn and fulfill their hopes and dreams, and their ultimate destiny. Start a simple routine this year of talking or reading to your children about what they like, what they love, and what is important to them. You dont have to always buy things for your child. Time is something that you cant buy. Once the early childhood moments are gone they can never be replaced.

Brown Bag This year, turn off your smartphone and television, and look away from the computer. Put down the video games and spend time with your family. Life is too short. You can be here today and gone tomorrow. Love the people that mean so much to you. Let them know how much they mean to you, not by just buying them things, but telling them I love you. You see, it is in our nature to want to be loved. Therefore every once in a while we all want to know that we matter to someone. This is especially important to our children because our family values are passed from generation to generation. Most of all laugh.

Know that every day is not going to be a bed of roses. You have the power to decide how what is happening in your life, around the world, and on your job is going to affect your day, week, month, and even your year. As parents, we have the power to determine how our behavior or how we react to a situation affects our children. My father used to tell me it takes more wrinkles to frown than to smile. Live, laugh and love in 2014.
