Junction City police have confirmed the iden-tity of a body found last week in rural Geary County as that of Amanda Clemons, who was reported missing late Feb. 7. According to a statement issued by Junction City Police Chief Tim Brown, an autopsy con-ducted Saturday determined the cause of death as sharp-force injury. Police are ruling her death a homicide. Clemons was reported missing Feb. 10, after she was last seen leaving room 112 of the Budget Host Hotel, 820 S. Washington St. in Junction City on Feb. 7. Police received information stat-ing Clemons was observed “being placed” in a silver vehicle occupied by two males and two females. Last week, Junction City detectives and Fed-eral Bureau of Investigation agents developed information leading them to execute a search warrant on Fort Riley involving the investiga-tion. Afterward, detectives and agents conducted interviews, which then directed law enforcement

Junction City will need creative options to fund the millions of dol-lars in needed repairs and upgrades at its water treatment plant and two wastewater treatment plants.Following a lengthy discussion, the City Commission Tuesday voted 3-2 to select Raftelis Finan-cial Consultants to perform a water and sewer rate analysis and devel-op a financial business plan that would include those creative options at a cost not to exceed $45,220.City Manager Gerald Smith told commissioners it was important to select the most qualified firm, which city staff believed was Rafte-lis.“There is no room for error here,” he said. “You want to know you’re getting the best business plan on the front end.”Raftelis will develop a plan for how the city can pay for projects at its water and wastewater facilities ones that could reach about $60 million.The commission was briefed on the conditions of the water and wastewater plants Monday by city staff and HDR Engineering. HDR made recommendations for a three-phase construction process. Top priority proj-ects could begin as soon as early 2015, while other sug-gested projects would be completed in the following years.The city would pay for the proj-ects over an even longer period.How much the final bills actually could amount to isn’t clear, Munici-pal Services Director Greg McCaf-fery said Tuesday.“There’s significant contingency in (HDR’s estimates),” he said. “We’ve not gone out for competitive bids.”Still, the final amount will be a hefty sum for a city with $150 million of debt always looming. But that’s why Raftelis, the “most qualified firm,” was recommended, even though it was the most expensive of three firms to submit proposals, McCaffery said.The city used a “qualification

Although they weren’t asleep, Jefferson Elementary students received a visit from the Tooth Fairy Wednesday for National Children’s Month. The Tooth Fairy was assisted by Drs. Danielle Royer and Chad Olinger. Both are captains at Fort Riley. Madyson Treece is pictured with Olinger. “We’re just trying to raise awareness about good oral hygiene and dental health,” Olinger said. The dentists taught the children about the proper brushing of teeth, flossing and healthy eating habits. Royer said they wanted to make dental health fun for the children. “We want them to know that the dentist can be a fun thing,” Royer said. “They don’t have to be afraid of the dentist.”

Unified School District 475 has selected Ret. Col. Bill Clark as the district’s new Director of Business Opera-tions, pending the Board of Education’s approval. Clark brings 30 years of active duty service and expe-rience with the Army to the school district, culminating his military service as the Garrison Commander of Fort Riley. Upon retirement from the Army, Clark has been serving as the Execu-tive Director of the Flint Hills Regional Council. Clark has ties to USD 475. During his tenure as the Garrison Commander for Fort Riley, the district com-pleted the develop-ment of Seitz Elemen-tary, acquired funding and began construc-tion on the new Fort Riley Middle School, and applied for funding for an additional new elementary school on the installation. “I am truly looking for-ward to becoming part of USD 475,” Clark said in a release. “Our school district has a tremendous reputation and does an excellent job of educating our youth and pre-paring them to become tomorrow’s leaders. I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of such an impor-tant and dynamic organiza-tion; I am both excited and anxious to begin.” “We are pleased to be reunited with Clark,” said USD 475 Superintendent Ron Walker. “Our paths have crossed many times. Clark knows USD 475 very well. All of his children graduated from JCHS. Further, we worked closely together dur-ing his tenure as Garrison Commander. Clark brings experience, expertise and wisdom to the Directors posi-tion. We are very pleased to continue our partnership and look forward to many fantastic days of productivi-ty.”

GRANDVIEW PLAZA — Due to the crunch of envi-ronmental regulations, Grandview Plaza officials will most likely have to add to their lagoon system.Currently, the city is not meeting state regulations for its lagoon system due to factors such as biochem-ical oxygen demand (BOD) and population. BOD is the amount of dissolved oxy-gen that must be present in water in order for micro-organisms to decompose the organic matter in water, used as a measure of the degree of pollution. Engineer Stuart Porter of Schwab Eaton made a presentation to the council about the problem.To help combat it, Eaton suggested the city add 8.8 acres to its existing lagoon system, which is made up 15.3 acres. “It’s not that the city isn’t doing a good job,” Porter said. “The reality is that with finite-sized lagoons, there comes a point when something has to be done.” During Tuesday’s meet-ing, city council members gave Porter the approval to conduct a preliminary engineering report on the matter.The report could cost between $5,000 and $7,000. After completion, the report will be sent to state officials.The Environ-mental Protection Agency (EPA) is looking at lagoon system in Kansas because they natu-rally do not do a good job of ammo-nia treatment.Porter said the water being dis-charged out of their lagoons is not meeting the mini-mal state standards because they’ve reached the limit. “It’s definitely over capacity, given the fact that the lagoons have a significant amount of sludge buildup in them,” he said. Porter said the sludge decreases the amount of detention available in the lagoon. According to his calculations, the sludge is at 20 percent. Grandview Plaza offi-cials will work on remov-ing sludge from the system in the near future. Porter advised them to pursue a lagoon project to avoid conflict with the EPA and the Kansas Depart-ment of Health and Environ-ment.“It just creates a lot of turmoil that’s really not necessary,” Por-ter said.A major reason for the issue is the Geary Estates apartment com-plex. The lagoon facility is operat-ing at 92 percent of treatment capacity, which does not leave growth for wet weather events or city growth.“Your population is pret-ty much maxed out for the size of the lagoons that you

MANHATTAN — Six university teams from the region will get the chance to compete for a grand prize of $2,000 in the Phil-lips 66-Enactus Business Ethics Case Competition, Feb. 20-22, hosted by Kan-sas State University and sponsored by the Phillips 66 Excellence in Business Ethics Initiative.Teams competing are from the University of Kansas, Iowa State Uni-versity, Texas A&M Uni-versity, Truman State Uni-versity, University of Northern Colorado and University of Oklahoma.Enactus is a nonprofit, global organization that uses entrepreneurial action to create and imple-ment community outreach projects around the world. Enactus teams get to decide how many projects and what type of projects they do. Enactus is open to all majors.At the competition, the four-member student teams will have 36 hours to analyze a problem, plan a solution and present a professional PowerPoint for the judges.Teams will be judged on three different compo-nents: the application of the ethical principles, business consideration and presentation skills.The competition allows students to demonstrate their understanding of ethical leadership when faced with realistic busi-ness ethics dilemma. Stu-dents also will get the chance to improve their presentation skills and network.In addition, the compe-tition lets students apply knowledge acquired through their college courses; network with other students, schools and business advocates; and explore future career strategies.The winning team will receive $2,000; second place earns $1,500; third place, $1,000; and fourth, fifth and sixth places, $500.The competition will take place at the Holiday Inn Manhattan at the Campus, 1641 Anderson Ave., which is across the street from the university campus.For questions about the case competition contact Bryanna Wishcop, Kansas State University Enactus president, at bryannw@k-state.edu, or Donita Whitney-Bammer-lin, Enactus adviser and instructor of manage-ment, at (785) 532-9020 or donitab@k-state.edu.

MANHATTAN — Kansas State University is now offering bakery science and management, feed science and management and grain handling operations as stand-alone minors through distance education.The stand-alone minors are not only available to cur-rent K-State undergraduate and postbaccalaureate stu-dents, but also to graduates of other accredited four-year universities who need educational instruction in grain science disciplines.“We have been approached by industry companies, associations and trade groups about making these minors available to non-K-State graduates so that hires without a grain-based background may learn basic information to help them better understand the indus-try in which they are working while also allowing employees to get college credit for a minor,” said Hus-eyin Dogan, instructor of grain science at Kansas State University.Helping individuals earn these stand-alone minors will help increase the number of educated professionals in the grain science industry, Dogan said.

MANHATTAN — A Kan-sas State University epidemi-ologist is helping cats, pet owners and soldiers stay healthy by studying feline tularemia and the factors that influence its prevalence.Ram Raghavan, assistant professor of diagnostic medi-cine and pathobiology, and collaborative researchers have found that a certain combination of climate, physical environment and socio-ecologic conditions are behind tularemia infections among cats in the region. More than 50 percent of all tularemia cases in the U.S. occur in Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas, Raghavan said.Francisella tularensis, a bacterium that causes tula-remia, commonly circulates among ticks, rabbits and rodents in the wild, but also frequently infects domestic cats. Tularemia is a zoonotic disease that can spread to humans through ticks or insect bites, eating under-cooked rabbit meat, close contact with infected ani-mals or even through air-borne means. If left untreat-ed, it can cause death in humans and animals, Ragha-van said. While it is not known exactly how many human tularemia cases are caused by exposure to infect-ed cats, it is possible for cats to transmit the disease to owners through bites and scratches.Cats also can be reliable sentinels for recognizing dis-ease activity in the environ-ment. If cats hunt outdoors or come into contact with an infected rabbit or animal, they can bring tularemia back to their owners.Raghavan’s research so far has found that tularemia is more likely to appear:
• In newly urbanized
areas.
• In residential locations
surrounded by grassland.
• In high-humidity envi
-ronments. Raghavan found that locations where tulare-mia was confirmed had high-humidity conditions about eight weeks before the dis-ease appeared.For the research, Ragha-van is partnering with the university’s geography department and the Public Health Department of Fort Riley Medical Activity. Raghavan maps tularemia cases confirmed by the Kan-sas State Veterinary Diag-nostic Laboratory and then collaborates with John Har-rington Jr. and Doug Goodin  — both professors of geogra-phy — to compile geospatial data for tularemia locations. By bringing in layers of data the researchers are deter-mining how different influ-ential factors -- such as cli-mate, land cover, landscape and pet owners’ economic conditions -- can lead to feline tularemia.“Taking a multidisci-plinary and computational approach helps us quickly understand the disease and make new discoveries,” Raghavan said. “We use diag-nostic information collected over time at the Kansas State Veterinary Diagnostic Labo-ratory and a wealth of extremely useful informa-tion from NASA and other agencies.We can then put all these data in a framework where it is useful for public health and animal health.”While tularemia is more common in young children and men, people also can get the disease when mowing lawns in a contaminated area, Raghavan said. Both human and feline tularemia cases peak through late spring and summer — when the weather is warmer, more ticks are present and more people are outside.

Health Department officials want residents to kick the tobacco habit. “We talk about tobacco and some people just see it as a choice,” Administrator Patricia Hunter said. “No, it’s not a choice, it’s very addictive.” During a Wednesday meeting for the Junction City-Geary Coun-ty Joint Board of Health, Hunter discussed deterring tobacco use. One way to accomplish that is through the Chronic Disease Risk Reduction (CDRR) program. Its purpose is to provide the depart-ment with multiple opportunities to provide outreach and health communication in the community. Although the department is work-ing to educate the public about the health risks of obesity, Hunter said they also want to focus on tobacco. According to the Center for Dis-ease Control and Prevention, smoking risks include cancer, stroke, heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which causes airflow blockage and breathing-related problems. “Considering now that we have more evidence on the impact of tobacco, we feel strongly from a public health standpoint that we need to focus heavily on the tobac-co prevention component,” Hunter said. The department is currently working to obtain CDRR grant money to raise awareness. The possible amount is unknown. “We’re going to focus more on students and, if possible, combine it with some existing youth pro-grams,” Hunter said. “When they see commercials, we want them to dissect it so they don’t get influ-enced by the glamour aspect and to understand that their health is a lifetime thing that they need to take care of.” One idea mentioned during the program included “Tar Wars,” a tobacco-free education program for elementary students through the DARE program. According to annual reports, the Community Health Assessment Group Evaluation (CHANGE) tool was established in 2012 to improve health. Some of the ongoing activi-ties included working with Geary County schools and the promotion of Kansas Quitline, a counseling service.
Department improving policy for treating minors
Board members discussed the current policy for treating minors. One of the main issues with that policy is pregnancy.Hunter would like to reinforce that pregnant girls should have parental involvement while receiving services at the depart-ment.“The medical community could see them, but on our side it was perceived that we can do the same thing,” Hunter said. “As new employees come in, some-times that education diminishes. Now we need to put it in a policy format.” Hunter said they’ll continue to work with the minors on life-changing issues such as preg-nancy.“We go through the process with them and tell them that their parents must know at some point,” Hunter said. “It’s better to be early so we can provide good prenatal care, so the out-come is a healthy baby.”

Heritage Park could soon be home to another memorial honoring mili-tary veterans.The Junction City Com-mission accepted the planned memorial as a gift from the Flint Hills Rotary Club Tuesday night. The club is working to raise about $30,000 to fund the construction and installa-tion of the memorial. Club member Steve Pringle told commission-ers veterans in the com-munity wanted to see a memorial that encom-passed more of those who served.“They would really like to see a small memorial for the veterans that actu-ally sacrificed for our free-dom,” he said.Other area veterans and motorcycle organizations are helping the club raise the needed funds. The project will be privately funded with no cost to the city.Once funds have been raised, the memorial will be mounted on a concrete base measuring about seven feet wide and five feet tall. It will be placed north of the current Kan-sas Vietnam Memorial along the Washington Street side of the park.The planned memorial depicts engraved seals in remembrance of all Pris-oners of War-Missing in Action, Killed in Action and Wounded in Action veterans. The memorial’s rear would be engraved with two poems honoring veterans and brother-hood.Pringle said the memo-rial would be a welcomed addition to the park’s cur-rent memorials.“Through the year, that area they use for wed-dings, re-enlistments,” he said. “The veterans use that area a lot.”The Flint Hills Rotary Club, Pringle said, has taken care of the area of the park near the Vietnam memorial since 1998. The organization has been working on the new memo-rial project for six months.Pringle, who said he’s had people already asking about making donations, believes the memorial could be installed later this year.“I see it done this fall,” he said.Any leftover donations the club receives will be used for continuing main-tenance in that area of the park.Vice Mayor Pat Landes told Pringle he appreci-ates the club keeping that area beautiful.“Your group does a great job of maintaining that area,” Landes said.For information on how to donate to the new memorial, call (785) 761-5740 or visit the JC Memo-rial Facebook page.

It’s here at
Geary!
Cardiac Rehab
Recovering from a heart attack and the heart surgery, angioplasty or stents that follows can be quite overwhelming. There is so much to deal with as you adjust to your new life and make changes to your life-long habits. A part of those changes and recovery is your participation in a cardiac rehabilitation (cardiac rehab) program. Patients generally complete Phase I of cardiac rehab while still a patient in the hospital that did their surgery or procedure. Once released from the hospital you will then enroll in a Phase II course as offered by the Rago Cardiopul-monary department at Geary Community Hospital.The Phase II rehabilitation course is a 12-week program done on an outpatient basis in Junction City. There is no need to go out of town to continue your rehabilitation.  You would participate in a one-hour cardiac rehab session three times per week. During these sessions the caring staff provides education and counseling services; they demonstrate and have you participate inexercises; and provide nutritional guidance, drug consultation and equipment instruction, all with the goal of restoring you to your fullest physical potential, reduce cardiac symptoms, and reduce the risk of future heart problems, including heart attacks. If you have heart disease and your physician prescribes cardiac rehab, call GCH’s Rago Cardiopulmonary department at 785-210-3393. Close to home, it’s here at Geary Community Hospital.
