ver 10 inches of snow Tuesday and Wednesday crippled Junction City and the surrounding area, breaking several snow-fall records and setting up the city to break even more. The 10.5 inches of snow Tuesday into Wednesday morning was the highest single snowfall event in recent history, according to County Extension Agent Chuck Otte, of the Geary County Extension Office. February 2014 has also become the third-snowiest month in recent history, leaving the area four inches shy of the all-time record, set in December 2009. Breaking that record is a possibility as well. The National Weather Service reports a winter storm could move through the Geary County area Mon-day and Tuesday, bringing another chance of accumulation. Possible accumu-lation amounts are not yet known. The recent storm caused many organi-zations and businesses to close early Tues-day and remain closed Wednesday. Fort Riley operated at minimal manning both days, and only essential per-sonnel were required to report to Geary Com-munity Hos-pital. Meanwhile, Unified School Dis-trict 475 cancelled class Tuesday and Wednesday, not only citing snow-fall but cold tem-peratures as well. USD 475 announced Wednesday after-noon it would be operating on a two-hour delay today. Junction City also closed all offices Tuesday afternoon, but resumed nor-mal operations Wednesday. The City Commission meeting scheduled for Tuesday evening was rescheduled for 7 p.m. tonight. Residents spent much of Tuesday night and Wednesday morning bundling up and digging out their driveways, and city crews spent the days trying to help those residents. The Junction City Fire Department responded to 11 EMS calls and two fire calls Tuesday. One fire call was a false alarm, but the second, in the 1300 block of

Fair or not, State Rep. Allan Rothlisberg has become the poster boy for a small-but-growing group who says they’re fed up with politicians speaking as though they were doctors.The group, Pissed Off Women over 50 and Pissed Off Friends of Women over 50, began as a Facebook event and more recently became a Facebook page for like-minded people to follow.One of the group’s leaders, Jan Stowe, told The Daily Union Rothlisberg’s remarks about obstetrics and gynecology services made Jan. 14 during a House Stand-ing Commerce, Labor and Econom-ic Development meeting got the ball rolling.A photo of Rothlisberg (R-Grand-view Plaza) quickly made the rounds on social media following the meet-ing. The picture contains the pur-ported quote, “If I was a woman over 50, I wouldn’t need gynecologi-cal services.”Though The Daily Union has been in contact with several people who claim to have credible sources who attend-ed the meeting, none of those sources have stepped forward to verify the quote’s authenticity.But what Stowe saw online was enough to make her angry.“When I saw that quote, it just really, really pissed me off,” said Stowe, a retired OB/GYN from Michigan. Rothlisberg has said the direct quote that angered Stowe and her group’s 1,600 Face-book followers was fabricated.He said he’s attempting to have the audio clarified by either Legislative Administra-tive Services or the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.“I want to have that cleared up so it’s very clear,” Rothlisberg said Wednesday. “I would love to see that happen. That way, nobody would have to go through the BS that I’m going through.”The Daily Union also has submit-ted an open records request for audio or a transcript, but has received no official response.Stowe said focusing on the accu-racy of the quote isn’t important.“Whether or not he said it is irrelevant, at this point,” she said.The point, Stowe added, is that Rothlisberg has given a group of people across the country — and from other countries — a reason to unite for a cause. Stowe said the group aims to speak out against politicians without medical training making decisions about women’s health.“He’s kind of like the poster boy of this movement,” she said of why the group’s focused on Rothlisberg thus far.Rothlisberg became the “poster boy,” Stowe said, following a phone conversation she said they had Jan. 17.

Crime in Junction City continues to decrease, with 2013 being no exception.Junction City Police Chief Tim Brown this week said 915 part-one crimes were committed last year, the lowest total of any year available on record.Available statistics date back to 1989.In that year, more than 3,000 part-one crimes were reported.The number of crimes reported in 2013 is down from 2012, too. “Overall, for the year, we had a 10 percent reduc-tion in crime (compared to 2012),” Brown said.Part-one crimes are reported by local juris-dictions to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Federal Bureau of Investigation.The category is further divided into two subcate-gories — violent and prop-erty.Murder, rape, aggravat-ed battery and aggravated assault are violent crimes.Burglary, theft and motor vehicle theft are property crimes.Brown credited the reduction in crime to the public’s increased aware-

MANHATTAN — A Kansas State University survey of recent graduates has found an increase in the percentage of new graduates with jobs -- more than half of them in Kansas -- as well as rising sala-ries and a broad range of career choices.Survey results show that 93 per-cent of graduates who earned bachelor’s degrees in 2012-2013 are employed or pursuing further edu-cation and advanced degrees — a percentage increase from last year. The university’s latest class of graduates also had the highest employment percentage of the last five years at 72 percent.“Results for our most recent class reflect the steady success of K-State graduates in obtaining employment or continuing their education with a K-State degree,” said Kerri Day Keller, director of the university’s career and employ-ment services. “It’s exciting to see them taking their first steps toward their career aspirations.”As reported by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, the national average starting salary for 2013 college graduates is almost 3 percent high-er than last year. The university’s survey shows that more than half of all majors saw their salary offers increase over the previous year.“Employer interest in this year’s class appears strong as well,” Keller said. “We have kicked off the new semester with three sold-out career fairs and are hosting about 350 employers on-campus within a 30-day time period this spring.”According to the survey results, the top corporate employers of bachelor’s degree graduates are Cerner, GTM Sportswear, Koch Industries, Cargill and Burns & McDonnell; the top public and nonprofit sector employers are Saint Francis Community Servic-es, the U.S. Army and the U.S. Air Force. Top unified school district employers are Geary County, Man-hattan-Ogden and Blue Valley. The survey also showed that 62 percent of employed bachelor’s degree graduates accepted jobs in Kansas, while Missouri, Texas and Colora-do are the top out-of-state loca-tions.“Students know that by choos-ing Kansas State University they will get an unparalleled under-graduate experience,” said Pat Bosco, vice president for student life and dean of students. “What’s more, they can see from their peers that the undergraduate experience will pay off when they enter the workforce or continue on to gradu-ate and professional schools.”Conducted by the university’s career and employment services, the survey polled Kansas State University graduates who received bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees during 2012-2013 and had response rates of 86, 87 and 88 per-cent respectively.The breakdown of salaries, a list of employers who have hired the university’s graduates and more can be found on the career and employment services website, http://www.k-state.edu/ces/stu-dents/employmentinformation.html.
Survey finds more jobs and advanced degrees for recent grads
MANHATTAN — A team of researchers from the anatomy and physiology department in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University has  just closed the book on an important chapter on stem cell research.The team, headed by associate professor Masaaki Tamura, contributed “Umbilical Cord Matrix Stem Cells for Cytotherapy of Breast Cancer” for the book “Stem Cell Therapeu-tics for Cancer,” which was published in December 2013.“Stem Cell Therapeutics for Cancer” was edited by Khalid Shah, an associate professor at the Harvard Medical School.The book covers the application of stem cells in various cancers, with an emphasis on the aspects of these strategies that are critical to the success of future stem cell-based ther-apies for human cancer.“This is very exciting,” Tamura said. “A number of researchers have shown a potential for the use of umbilical cord matrix stem cells for therapy in nerve injuries, renal failure and several organ-type cancers. Recent studies suggest there may be potentially good therapeutic cells for human breast cancer treatment.”As stated in the book chapter, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women in the United States.Approximately 1 out of 8 women develops breast can-cer in her lifetime, and this cancer-dependent mortality is the second leading cause of cancer-dependent death in women.Kansas State University’s Deryl Troyer, a professor of anatomy and physiology, and a group of graduate students, staff and postdoc-toral fellows -- Naomi Ohta, Atsushi Kawabata, Deepthi Uppalapati and Susumu Ishiguro -- helped compose the chapter on breast can-cer.The chapter examines immune evasion mecha-nisms and tropism of umbilical cord matrix stem cells to pathological lesions as well as the impact of therapies for primary breast cancer and breast cancer lung metastasis.“Although cytotherapy with umbilical cord matrix stem cells seems to be a very promising and practi-cal therapy for human can-cer, inflammatory diseases and degenerative disorders, the potential for human use has not been rigorously studied,” Tamura said. “Our research will further clarify the therapeutic potential and contribute significantly to the research in humanstem cell-based targeted cancer therapy.”

A visually stunning blend of traditional and contemporary Chinese dance comes to K-state at 7:30 p.m., on Friday, Feb. 28. Elegant, sensual and captivating, the Lily Cai Chinese Dance Company melds ancient Chinese forms with modern dance in an artistic and inven-tive marriage of styles. “Dynasties and Beyond” embarks on a dazzling journey of contrasts; from ancient Chinese dynasties to remote regional cultures, and from the elegance of court dances to the dynamic brilliance of contemporary ribbon dancing. With vivid chore-ography and style, Lily Cai reveals the strength, beauty and complexity of the Chinese woman from the distant past to today. “In the first six spellbinding minutes, Lily Cai served notice to her audience that they were in for an evening that would be not only exotic but brilliantly theatrical… a terrific show.” — Sacramento Bee

MANHATTAN — A $2.5 million national grant will be used by Kan-sas State University and four other educational institutions in Kansas to help students find success in science, technology, engineering and math -- or STEM -- careers, regardless of their race, ethnicity or economic sta-tus.The university is the lead institu-tion for the five-year grant award from the prestigious Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation, or LSAMP, program of the National Science Foundation. This program is aimed at increasing the quality and quantity of students successfully completing STEM baccalaureate degree programs, as well as increas-ing the number of students qualified, prepared and accepted into graduate study programs. It is named in honor of Louis Stokes, a longtime African-American congressman from Ohio.Kansas State University is part-nering with Dodge City Community College, Garden City Community College and Seward County Commu-nity College/Area Technical School, all in southwest Kansas, and with Donnelly College, a minority-serving private institution in Kansas City, Kan., to establish the KS-LSAMP program, Pathways to STEM. The schools were selected because they serve the rapidly growing Hispanic/Latino population of the state and have strong existing ties to Kansas State University.An initial meeting to introduce the program and its alliance members will be at 10 a.m. Friday, March 14, in the Town Hall Room at the Leader-ship Studies Building at Kansas State University, Manhattan.The schools will use Pathways to STEM to build upon and expand recruitment and retention strategies of underrepresented students — including African-Americans, Native Americans/American Indians and Hispanic/Latino students — and their ultimate transfer to Kansas State University.“One of the exciting aspects of this project is that it will develop an inno-vative pathway that reflects the unique institutional characteristics and student demographics of each partner institution. The pathway will lead to an increase in the number of diverse students who receive STEM degrees, which will in turn address regional and state workforce needs,” said April Mason, principal investi-gator of the project and Kansas State University provost and senior vice president.The project will include special-ized activities at critical junctures in the pathway, Mason said, such as high school to college; two-year to four-year institutions; and the criti-cal freshman-to-sophomore transi-tion at four-year institutions.

With a smile, Joseph Richard sat by his fifth-grade son, Jerohn, as they dove into the world of math together. In the future, Jerohn will probably have a similar education experience with students across the United States. It’s the reason his father attended Lincoln Elemen-tary’s Common Core Night with him. “I think it was cool learning math and doing stuff with the Com-mon Core,” Jerohn Richard said. “I had a good time.”The purpose of the recent event was to help introduce parents to the Kansas Col-lege and Career Ready Standards, which are based on the Common Core Stan-dards. The Kansas College and Career Ready Standards were developed to bring together a single set of edu-cational standards in Eng-lish, language arts, math and science. Joseph Richard said edu-cational programs across the country are not equal and that’s another reason he favors the program. He believes everything should be equal across the board.“I don’t think it’s fair to say we’re going to have a set of standards across the country when the resourc-es in one city or county are not equal,” Joseph Richard said. During the event, Rita Powell watched her son Sean work with teacher Chelsea Faulkner as she showed him multiplication strategies. “They’re building on what they learn from each grade,” Rita Powell said. “They can change schools and they’ll be on the same standard if they move to a different school district.”Faulkner, a third grade educator, noticed a differ-ence since Common Core was recently implemented. “They’re more willing to explain what they’re doing, as they’re actually under-standing what they’re doing, instead of just giv-ing an answer,” Faulkner said. Although many parents are in favor of it, the sys-tem has sparked some con-troversy. Some people opposed believe it takes away educational rights from states and places it the federal government’s hand. But many educators pre-fer the method over multi-ple choice testing. Lincoln’s academic coach Marilyn Reynoldson shares a simi-lar opinion. “It’s going to create thinkers that perform the kind of things that are needed later in life,” Reyn-oldson said.

Jody Hittle, a registered nurse at Geary Community Hospital (GCH), recently passed the certification exam known as CNOR (certified nurse operating room). Hittle is the nurse manager of the Geary Community Hospital Surgery Center. “I am very proud of her accom-plishments,” said Dawn Engel, RN, interim chief nursing officer. “Jody demonstrates her dedication to qual-ity and excellence in the surgery department. Obtaining her certifica-tion confirms her competence and capabilities.” As the only accredited credential pro-gram for perioperative registered nurses, CNOR certification is the gold standard. Earning the CNOR credential is a mark of distinction and a highly sought-after personal as well as professional accom-plishment. The CNOR credentialing program is for perioperative nurses interested in enhanc-ing as well as validating their spe-cialized knowledge and skills. Speciality nursing certification is an objective measure of knowl-edge, which validates that a nurse is qualified to provide specialized nursing care. More than 34,250 perioperative nurses currently hold the CNOR credential. Candidates have three hours and 45 minutes to complete the CNOR exam, which has 200 multiple-choice questions. These questions assess a nurses’ profi-ciency in nine comprehensive periopera-tive nursing subjects.

Sheridan Elementary School was one of 42 schools recently recog-nized as part of the sev-enth annual Governor’s Achievement Awards, which honors the top per-forming schools in the state. “The Governor’s Achievements Award is a significant recognition for Kansas schools,” said Kan-sas Education Commis-sioner Dr. Diane DeBacker. “The accomplishment rec-ognizes a school’s high expectations and the abil-ity of the school staff to assist students in achiev-ing to those expecta-tions.” The school must have been among the top five percent of schools in both reading and mathematics on the state assessments at its respective level and met one additional mea-sure. For elementary schools and middle/junior high schools that addi-tional measure is atten-dance and for high schools, the measure is the gradu-ation rate.
