ith more than three decades of experience in the arts, Randal  West is looking forward to his next challenge — operating the C.L. Hoover Opera House.
As the interim exec-utive director of the facility, the upcoming weeks are going to be busy for West as he  juggles meetings with organizations and
city ofcials.
“I want to know how people feel about the building,” he said. “There’s a lot of people excited about what can happen here.”The search for the next leader of the Opera House began after Mary Louise Stahl announced her retirement effective Dec. 31, 2013. Through his background in marketing and administration, he’s looking forward to picking up the mantle of a facility which plays a major role in the city’s cultural land-scape.“It’s going to be a big challenge and it’s going to take a lot of people getting on board to make this happen,” he said. “I don’t under-estimate the challenge that’s here. There’s a lot of coordinating to do for making sure everyone’s voices are heard.”West’s first day at the Opera House was Monday. “It’s been a whole week of meeting people who have a interest in the Opera House,” West said about crafting a vision. “I don’t believe that an executive director should come in and dictate a vision to a building or a company.” Currently, he’s examining where the Opera House does well and improving other func-tions. “I’m in the process of looking at what’s not being done in Junction City and what we can do,” he said. “Is there something that we can add to the Opera House that would be an addi-tion culturally, that’s not being done by some-one else?”After the vacant position was offered, West  jumped on the opportunity and began two weeks later. Most recently, he served as the Executive/Artistic Director of Way Off Broad, Iowa’s only professional musical theatre com-pany. “My energy is full speed ahead to get every-thing going here,” he said.Although West recently began his duties at the Opera House, he is not officially settled in. West recently made a trip to Iowa to pack up more stuff. “It’s a been a whirlwind,” he said about moving to the Flint Hills.West’s wife is Margaret and together, they have three sons, Gareth, William, and Joshua. Margaret also sings professionally. “I dragged her into musical theatre scream-ing and yelling,” he said. “She’s going to come here and teach voice.”Gareth is attending Junction City High School. William wants to be a creative direc-tor for video games.Although many residents are excited about his background and his move to the Opera

MANHATTAN — As the Penta-gon prepares to publicly push for a new round of base realignment and closure as early as 2017, Kan-sas Governor’s Military Council Executive Director John Arm-brust is warning the Fort Riley area not to be “scared by the num-bers you’ll see.”During a presentation at the Flint Hills Regional Council’s meeting in Manhattan, Armbrust said the Army is looking at the impacts of if it were to draw below its current end-strength of 490,000 soldiers.The Army, Armbrust said, like-ly could float base realignment and closure (BRAC) num-bers that, to some, may seem high.But at this point, Fort Riley and the communi-ties relying on it as an eco-nomic driver shouldn’t worry too much, he said.“They aren’t going to close Fort Riley,” Arm-brust said. “I feel very comfortable about that, if we keep doing the right thing.”The Army likely will look at what would happen if it dropped its end-strength to 450,000 or as low as 420,000 soldiers. At Fort Riley, Armbrust said, the poten-tial impacts examined could range from zero soldiers to clo-sure.“It will be closer to the zero part than it will be the 16,000,” he said.If approved, an impact may still be felt, Armbrust added.“They believe that the socio-economic impacts will be greater than they were the first time around,” he said.The last round of BRAC occurred in 2005, when the Big

Status hearings for three peo-ple facing possible charges in connection to the kidnapping and murder of a Junction City woman last week have been continued to March 27.Marryssa M. Middleton, Drexel A. Woody and Larry L. Anderson each appeared Thursday in Geary County District Court for status hearings.Woody and Anderson both received new attorneys to repre-sent them in their cases after District Judge Charles Zimmer-man allowed their originally-ap-pointed attorney, Robert Shively, to withdraw. Shively had been appointed to represent all three, but now will be representing only Middleton.Allen Angst now will represent Woody, while Linda Barnes was appointed to represent Ander-son.All three defendants could face charges connected to the murder and kidnapping of 24-year-old Amanda Clemons, who had been reported missing Feb. 10.Clemons reportedly was last seen leaving room 112 of the Bud-get Host Hotel, 820 S. Washington St., the night of Feb. 7. Police were told she was observed “being placed in a silver color vehicle” occupied by two black males and two black females, according to a police press release issued last week.Middleton, 22, of Colorado and Woody, 23, of Fort Riley were arrested after authorities investi-gating Clemons’s disappearance found a body in rural Geary County the night of Feb. 12.Police stated the body matched the description of Clemons.An autopsy conducted Feb. 15 in Kansas City, Kan., confirmed the body discovered by authori-ties was Clemons. The death was ruled a homicide. The cause of death was determined to be “sharp force injury,” a Tuesday

A group of rainforest animals caused quite a stir at Ware Elementary School. Melissa Fugit, of Wildlife Wonders, made a presentation Friday to the stu-dents. The purpose is to help educate audiences about life in the rainforest. “It shows the kids what things are like outside their world,” Fugit said. Some of the animals showcased during the event included the Madagascar hissing cockroach, a tarantula and the blue-and-gold Macaw. Along with animal presentations, Wildlife Wonders also showcases products from rainforests around the world. According to their website, officials said “We promote awareness and enthusiasm for wildlife conservation education, both at the grass roots community level and on a national scale.”
“Is there something that we can add to the Opera House that would be an addition culturally, that’s not being done by someone else?”

“It takes a village to succeed in agriculture today.”While initially, many question the exact meaning of that com-ment, Tony English summarized his 10-point presentation that way in discussing what will affect the agriculture industry in 2014 and beyond.“It is an increasingly com-plex environment, and the rate of change is accelerating, so we must build a team of experts,” he said at the 580 WIBW Farm Profit Confer-ence in Lyndon. Thus, “it takes a village” to achieve success as agricul-ture goes beyond the home barnyard to the “U.S. econo-my and the world today,” according to English, who is closely tied to all facets affecting agriculture through his Manhat-tan-based association serving 41 eastern Kansas counties.“No. 10: Janet Yellen,” was the lead-off powerpoint screen shown by English, who pointed out Yellen is the first female chairperson of the Federal Reserve, taking office early this month.Yellen is considered by many to be a “dove,” more concerned with unemployment than with inflation and as such to be less likely to advocate Federal Reserve interest rate hikes.However, some predict Yellen could act more as a “hawk,” if eco-nomic circumstances dictate. She would then favor increased inter-est rates in order to keep inflation in check. Yellen would become less con-cerned with economic growth than with recessionary pressure brought to bear by high inflation rates.“The actions of Janet Yellen can impact agriculture, and oversight is essential,” English said. “We don’t want the Federal Reserve independent of Congress.” “Taper Tantrum” was the No. 9 item listed by English, explaining that the Federal Reserve has continued its tapering process, slowing month-ly purchases of treasur-ies and mortgage-backed securities another $10 billion to a total of $65 billion per month.“Tapering is happening and will continue,” English said. “There is an addiction to free money. “The market reacts more calmly when it is not surprised,” he said. “Congress is in therapy,” Eng-lish said. “Democracy is the worst form of government, with the exception of everything else we have tried.“Congress has been dysfunc-tional,” he said. “The Beltway (Washington, D.C., leadership) is still bad, but improving.”There are geopolitical risks. “In today’s environment with instantaneous communication and information, those with political agendas often look for a ‘big splash,’” English said.“Supply and demand ultimately drive markets, but markets can remain illogical far longer than any of us can remain liquid,” English said, add-ing there “contin-ues to be numerous ‘hot spots’ in the economy.” Again reflecting that today’s agri-culture is in a glob-al economy, Eng-lish said that currencies plummet-ing in Argentina and Turkey have had a contagion effect upon the emerging markets.“Turkey is a significant player, too, that is in trouble,” he said. “Poor economics leads to political strife.” “We want and need healthy trad-ing partners with consumers who can afford our products,” he said.“Rain gauges are obsolete,” he said. “Technology and ‘big data’ are changing the way we do things,” English said. “The world is flat,” so we can know what is happen-ing, weather, crops, economies, politics, anywhere with the flip of a computer button.“We are on the cusp of another ‘tipping point,’” he said. “Who knows, we might really have ‘green cows’ before we know it, or can even believe it.”English also talked about the strength of the U.S. dollar.“The U.S. dollar is the best horse in the glue factory,” he said. “Our Federal Reserve will tighten soon-er and more aggressively than most developed economies.”However, “in isolation, higher rates equal a stronger dollar which equal lower commodity pric-es,” English said.“Liquidity-driv-en inflation is the wild card,” he said. “A burgeon middleclass in devel-oping nations will demand a high-er quality diet, especially protein,” English said. “Others will tie their diets to stances on social issues,” he said.“There are incredible opportu-nities for niche players,” he said.No. 2 on English’s list affecting 2014 agriculture was, “Trade poli-cy is a big deal.” “This is the biggest news story you don’t hear anything about,” he said. “The European and Asia-Pa-cific trade deals have the potential to change direction of agriculture in the United States.”In summary, “It takes a village to succeed in this increasingly complex environment where the rate of change is accelerating.“You must build a team of agri-culture experts to stay informed and remain engaged,” English said.

Evidence discovery is ongoing in a case against a Kansas City man accused of murdering and robbing a Junction City man last year.A status hearing held Tuesday in Geary County District Court was con-tinued to April 22 after Jeffrey Wicks, the attorney for Anthony Nichols, told District Judge Charles Zimmerman he recently received additional discovery.Nichols, 33, has been confined in Geary County since Sept. 11 for the alleged murder of Anthony Nixon, 37, of Junction City. Nixon was discovered early Sept. 7 by a Geary County Sher-iff’s Department deputy at the intersec-tion of 10th and Webster streets in Junction City.The deputy was responding to a report of a shot having been fired in the area. After arriving on scene, Junction City Fire Department and EMS person-nel declared Nixon dead of a gunshot wound. Police were told an altercation had occurred earlier in the morning, though officers weren’t called to respond. Nichols faces charges of first degree murder, aggravated robbery and pos-session of a firearm by a convicted felon.Nichols also faces charges in a sepa-rate case in Riley County.Riley County police arrested Nichols Sept. 13 for his alleged role in the mur-der of 68-year-old John Burroughs of Manhattan.Riley County police found Burroughs dead in his Manhattan home on Sept. 8 after conducting a welfare check.Police also arrested Manhattan resi-dents Christina Love, 49, and her son, James McKenith, 33, on Sept. 11 for their alleged roles in Burroughs’s death. Both Love and McKenith plead-ed not guilty to aiding and abetting first degree murder Jan. 27 in Riley County District Court.Prosecutors allege the two helped Nichols kill Burroughs at his Manhat-tan home last September, the same night Geary County prosecutors state Nixon was killed. Jury trials have been scheduled for McKenith and Love. McKenith’s trial is scheduled for May 5, while Love’s is scheduled for June 2.

Junction City Commissioners signed an agreement Tuesday that would establish the Flint Hills Regional Transit Adminis-tration, a body that could allow ATA Bus to tap into more federal funds. The Flint Hills Regional Council has taken the lead on forming the administration so it can become the fiscal agent, par-tially resolving the council’s cur-rent funding woes.The agreement would be between six members — Geary, Pottawatomie and Riley coun-ties; Junction City, Manhattan and Kansas State University. ATA Bus provides services in those areas and Fort Riley.Each member would appoint one representative to sit on a governing board. Fort Riley would have a nonvoting repre-sentative. ATA Bus already is eligible for federal rural transit funds. The urban transit funds now are available because of the establishment of the Manhattan Urban Area, which includes Junction City and Geary County. Kansas State University would cover the 20 percent local match required with urban transit funds.“This requires no financial commitment by the city,” assis-tant city manager Cheryl Beatty said.The second source of funds could help the service meet the increased demand and allow the region more options in deter-mining how to spend funds. ATA bus currently serves about 250,000 users per year.The agreement to form the administration will be submitted to the Kansas Attorney Gener-al’s office once signed by all pari-ties.
 Junction City signs agreement bringing Milford into planning fold
After months of meetings and discussions, Milford now will be the third party involved in an interlocal agreement for plan-ning, zoning and code enforce-ment. Tuesday, the Junction City Commission signed an updated agreement that includes Milford with Junction City and Geary County, the agreement’s original parties. Commissioner Mick McCallis-ter said bringing Milford into the agreement will further help the planning and zoning department  — a joint city and county depart-ment — utilize efficiencies.“That’s going to make things easier for our code enforcement,” he said.Milford now will need to appoint a member to the Metro-politan Planning Commission.
Commissioners approve training agreement
City officials hope an agree-ment signed Tuesday by the Junction City Commission will help it benefit from cooperative training opportunities with neighboring communities.Commissioners approved an agreement that, once signed by each party, would allow Junc-tion City, Geary County, Man-hattan, Riley County and Fort Riley to work together to provide mutual training.“Mainly it would be for police and fire cross-training, is the hope,” Beatty said. “They already do some of that.” The agreement would be for five years, but would allow any party to withdraw at any time.The parties could provide “training opportunities on a ‘space available basis’” but wouldn’t be required to do so, a memo from city attorney Katie Logan to city commissioners stated.

Norman and Gaylynn Childs celebrated 50 years of marriage last year, and both are recently retired.But neither is planning to stay home to enjoy it. The couple has accepted a mission call to serve in the Rochester New York Mission as Visitor Center Missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.As such, they will jointly host visitors to any of sev-eral LDS Church historical locations in New York, including the boyhood home of the church’s first president and latter-day prophet, Joseph Smith, the Hill Cumorah, where the young prophet was tem-porarily entrusted with the metal plates’ source of the present day Book of Mormon, and more. Beginning March 10, 2014, the couple will receive two weeks of orientation and training in the Provo, Utah Missionary Training Center prior to their 18 months of service in west-ern New York.Both are well known in the Junction City area. After a 22-year career as an officer in the Army, which included multiple tours in Vietnam where he earned a Silver and two Bronze Stars for gallantry, Norm retired in Junction City in 1982. Immediately he assumed the position of Director for the Geary County Conven-tion and Visitors Bureau, which he filled from 1982 to March of 1990. For the next two years he repeated this labor in Pueb-lo, Colo.After returning to Junc-tion City, he took the admin-istrator position of the Geary County Campus, Cloud County Community College and served in that position until the end of 2000. During his tenure with CCCC, he facilitated the planning and construction of the present campus on Caroline Avenue.Shortly after the fami-ly settled in Junction City, Gaylynn joined the staff at the Geary County Historical Society Muse-um. A year later she became the museum director and was employed with the society for more than 28 years, retiring as the GCHS Executive Director in March 2013. During her tenure with the historical society, Gaylynn became well-known in the area for week-ly articles and columns she wrote for the Junction City Daily Union. To mark Junction City’s Sesquicentennial in 2008, a book was published con-taining a comprehensive selection of these historical articles.The couple has taken time for family too. The have a present pos-terity of two sons, nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, all liv-ing in the Junction City area.
