Funk: You’re all part of the Army family
B Y A LIX KUNkLE
One of the messages Maj. Gen. Paul Funk, commanding general of the 1st Infantry Division, wants members of Junction City and Geary County to understand is they’re all part of the Army family. At Thursday’s Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee breakfast, Funk illustrated that family concept with a moment from a recent event honoring five Fort Riley soldiers who were killed in a Black Hawk helicopter crash in December. During a private ceremony, where families of the fallen soldiers were presented with Purple Hearts, Funk asked the families where they planned to go. One spouse had already decided where she’d call home next. “She turned to me and said, ‘you know, I’m going to stay here,’” Funk
said. “She said, ‘I’m going to stay community, they didn’t let that haphere, because my Army family gets pen.” me.’ For their efforts, Funk presented “You’re part of that,” he said. “You Geary County Sheriff Tony Wolf, are part of that Army family.” Undersheriff Brad Clark and Capt.

B Y C HaSE JORDaN
For an entire year, members of the Geary County Children’s Choir raised money with hopes of traveling to Colorado Springs. But their summertime journey to the Centennial State may be in jeopardy. According to Geary County Children’s Choir Greg Gooden, Glen Irwin, the former business manager for the organization, allegedly embezzled $10,000. After a recent investigation by the Junction City Police Department, Irwin was charged with felony theft. A criminal complaint was filed Thursday with the Geary County District Court. The complaint alleges Irwin, between Jan. 1, 2012, and June 8, 2013, was involved in the theft of undeposited money from the owner, the Geary County Children’s Choir. “It’s a shock to the kids because they spent a lot of hours fundraising,” Director Greg Gooden said. “It’s sad someone

GOP activists defend Christie at national meeting
WASHINGTON — Chris Christie may have been nearly 200 miles away, but his struggles in New Jersey buzzed through the hallways of a Washington hotel this week as hundreds of Republican officials gathered to debate the GOP’s future. Party activists from Mississippi to Massachusetts defended Christie’s leadership, insisting this is no time to write his political obituary. But they also said it’s far too soon to grant him presidential front-runner status. Christie’s popularity has fallen in recent weeks amid revelations that senior members of his administration helped create massive traffic jams last fall, apparently to exact political retribution against a Democratic New Jersey mayor. Additional allegations of political bullying have emerged as federal prosecutors and Democratic legislators probe the matter. Four people close to Christie have been fired or have resigned. A roadblock for a possible presidential run? More like a speed bump, one activist said Friday. It could even help Christie among party conservatives by turning him into a martyr, said another. But he still faces resistance among some of those conservatives. A senior Christie adviser at the Republican National Committee meeting suggested the high-profile governor has already overcome the worst of his challenges, although federal prosecutors have subpoenaed his recent campaign and Democrats are pressing an abuse-of-power investigation. “Absolutely,” adviser Bill Palatucci said when asked if Christie is through the toughest stretch. “It’s a Democratic state — the Legislature is controlled by the Democrats — so I think they will attempt to drag it out as long as they can. That being said, the governor is very determined to continue his job as governor and do the things that he talked about in his inauguration speech.” The Republicans who gathered for the meeting, which wound up Friday, largely agreed that Christie has time to recover politically before the next presidential election, should he decide to run. “We’ve got lots of people who can run and I think Christie is one of them,” lated auditor independence rules by providing prohibited non-audit services like bookkeeping to the companies involved. The companies weren’t named. In addition, the SEC said some KPMG employees owned stock in companies that were KPMG audit clients. KPMG neither admitted nor denied the allegations. The company is paying about $6.5 million in restitution and interest, and a $1.77 million penalty. KPMG also agreed to hire an independent consultant to monitor its compliance with rules. In a statement, the company said “KPMG has implemented internal changes that are designed to ensure its ability to comply with restrictions on providing non-audit services.” The SEC has brought a number of cases involving auditor independence against big accounting firms in recent years. Some firms have been sanctioned multiple times. The issue came to the fore in the Enron scandal that broke in late 2002 and in several accounting scandals involving big corporations that followed it. Investigators raised questions about close ties between Enron and Arthur Andersen LLP, which did both auditing and consulting work for the nowdefunct energy trading company. Andersen was convicted in June 2002 of obstruction of justice for destroying Enron audit documents. The conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court in 2005 because of flawed jury instructions, but the once-venerable Andersen had already dissolved. The services prohibited by the auditor independence rules include bookkeeping, financial systems design, human resources and legal services. In 2005, KPMG LLP of Canada agreed to pay about $73,000 in a settlement with the SEC over bookkeeping work it did for former Canadian audit client Southwestern Water Exploration Co. The SEC censured KPMG in January 2002 for allegedly violating the independence rules by investing $25 million in a mutual fund at the same time it was auditing the fund’s books. KPMG wasn’t fined in that case and neither admitted nor denied the allegations but agreed to take measures to prevent future violations.
Both sides in Syrian talks to meet in ‘same room’
GENEVA — Bending to intense international pressure, Syria’s government and the Western-backed opposition agreed Friday to face each other for the first time since the start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad. After three days of hostile rhetoric and five hours spent assiduously avoiding contact within the United Nations, the two sides will meet “in the same room,” said the U.N. mediator trying to forge an end to the civil war that has left 130,000 people dead since 2011. Mediator Lakhdar Brahimi met separately with Assad’s delegation and representatives with the Syrian National Coalition, who arrived at the U.N. European headquarters five hours apart to ensure their paths would not cross. “We never expected it to be easy and I’m sure it’s not going to be, but I think the two parties understand what’s at stake,” Brahimi said. “Their country is in very, very bad shape.” Brahimi, a famously patient mediator, is credited with efforts to stabilize Iraq and Afghanistan after the U.S. ousted their governments. But he faces a formidable task to build peace in Syria, which has been flooded with al-Qaida-inspired militants. The conflict has become a proxy war between regional powers Iran and Saudi Arabia. Syria’s government has made military gains and has capitalized on the influx of foreign militants, while the coalition nearly collapsed as it wavered on whether to attend the talks at all. After Brahimi spoke, a member of the group said it still wasn’t clear what would happen Saturday.
Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus speaks at the Republican National Committee winter meeting in Friday in Washington. Seeking to shorten the Republican presidential selection process, the GOP moves to hold its national convention in late June or early July in 2016, roughly two months sooner than usual. Iowa and New Hampshire would retain their coveted spots atop the presidential primary calendar.
said Henry Barbour, a Republican national committeeman from Mississippi. “The last month hasn’t been very good, but we’re a long ways off from when people are going to be making those sorts of decisions.” Massachusetts committeeman Ron Kaufman, a senior adviser to 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, described Christie’s challenges as “maybe a speed bump” being “overblown” by the media. “The bottom line is that Chris Christie is still, if not the biggest, one of the biggest draws in our party. He’s still one of the most popular Republican governors,” Kaufman said. Even some of the more conservative Republican activists — including those who have had concerns about Christie — downplayed the political impact of the New Jersey investigations. But that doesn’t mean he is suddenly popular with the GOP’s most passionate voters, who still bristle at the memory of his embrace of President Barack Obama in the days after Superstorm Sandy. Some social conservatives also are upset that Christie didn’t work harder to block same-sex marriage in New Jersey and that he recently signed legislation giving in-state tuition rates to New Jersey immigrants in the country illegally. “If he’s innocent, and I think he is, I think it’s a big to-do about nothing,” Republican national committeeman Steve Scheffler, of Iowa, said of the New Jersey investigations. “I think he’s got some serious challenges in trying to convince the base that he’s going to be a solid conservative and not somebody who’s going to play too much ball with the Democrats.” Others predicted that Christie’s problems could actually help him with skeptical conservatives should he become portrayed as a victim of an overly aggressive mainstream media. “The consensus feeling is that he’s been unfairly attacked,” former Michigan GOP Chair Saul Anuzis said. “He could very easily become a martyr.” But Christie also faces pressing legal issues. His re-election campaign and the state Republican Party have less than two weeks to comply with subpoenas from federal prosecutors. His campaign has retained a Washington law firm. The subpoenas from the U.S. attorney’s office are evidence of an escalating criminal investigation into allegations that Christie’s aides created traffic jams in a town with a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his re-election campaign. Earlier in the month, the U.S. attorney for New Jersey said his office was reviewing the matter “to determine whether a federal law was implicated.” A state legislative committee also has issued subpoenas for correspondence from 20 Christie associates and organizations, due by Feb. 3. Christie, meanwhile, is showing no signs that his troubles back home will affect plans to broaden his national network as chairman of the Republican Governors Association. The group announced this week that Christie will raise money in Illinois, Texas, Massachusetts, Georgia, Connecticut and Utah in the coming months. The release of a vague travel schedule followed a call from recent Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli that Christie resign from the post. Palatucci, said it’s “wildly premature” to speculate on how the scandal will affect Christie’s political future. He also dismissed the significance of polls suggesting the governor’s popularity has fallen dramatically. “Polls bounce around,” he said. “You take them for what they are — which is a snapshot in time.”

From the Editor’s desk The danger of jumping to conclusions
onday and Tuesday were interesting days in the newsroom. It all started with a phone call from a woman who told us about a Facebook post showing a statement made by our State Rep. Allan Rothlisberg “going viral.” She asked if we were going to do anything about it and was very upset about what Rothlisberg said in a committee meeting earlier this month. My first response to her was, “of course we will look into it and find out what was going on,” knowing full well we would be talking to Rothlisberg and via other means confirming the accuracy of the quote being spread around like wildfire. But immediately, my second thought revolved around thinking how upset this woman was about a Facebook L ISA post made by someone she didn’t even S EISER know and immediately believing it. That cynical nature took over as I suggested to her I often question items posted on social media when not from known or reliable sources. The next day, I received an email from another person asking if we knew about this. I told the person we were in the process of checking to verify its accuracy and doing a story. That didn’t stop this same person from sending a letter to the editor within minutes before giving us a chance or finding out whether it was true Rothlisberg had said it. The quote being attributed to Rothlisberg stated, “If I was a woman over 50, I wouldn’t need gynecological services.” After multiple phone calls, it was apparent, there was something going on here and I’m still not sure what it is. Rothlisberg was very clear he didn’t say that. There also were people who wouldn’t talk to us or tell us the origin of the quote. Those who were spreading the quote via social media admitted they weren’t at the meeting in which it was said. In an effort to find out if Rothlisberg said this, we have made an open records request to obtain the audio of the committee meeting in which this was supposedly said, but have yet to receive anything. This story may get more interesting. Rothlisberg is talking about filing ethics violations against the state leader responsible for spreading what Rothlisberg still is contending he didn’t say in any way. The only way to truly know is to hear the recording to find out exactly what was said. Until then, I am not comfortable believing what either side says. We all sometimes fall into the trap of believing what we hear, are told or read, especially when it is such an emotional topic. This situation could be proof there is danger in that type of mentality.
Despite cold, global warming is fact B
r-r-r-r! It’s a good thing I remembered where I stored all my old ski gear, including the thermal underwear that I hadn’t worn in years. I’ve needed it during a season in which even the Deep South has seen an epidemic of frozen pipes, single-digit temperatures and school cancellations without snow. School kids were allowed to stay home for a day or two because, according to administrators, the weather was too doggone cold. The deep freeze might have forced most of us into a shoulder-hunching slouch, but it prompted an Easter Parade-like promenade by a crew of familiar climate change skeptics, who trotted out their usual arguments — See, we told you so. They’re making it all up. The planet isn’t getting warmer. Because the Northeast corridor has suffered through severe winters of late, the backlash has become a ritual. But it’s nothing more than posturing, akin to positing today that the Earth is flat and the sun revolves around it. Climate change is real — a serious threat to the economy, to the food supply, to the ecosystem. “This time of year, people will take a cold spell and try to say, ‘We told you climate change is not real,’” said Dr. Marshall Shepherd, president of the American Meteorological Society and head of the Atmospheric Sciences Program at the University of Georgia. But, he added, “We’ll still have winter in the year 2080, when the climate is likely to be much warmer.” Shepherd, a former NASA climate scientist, likes to explain the cold spurts to laymen with the following
Commentary analogy: “Weather is your mood, but climate is your personality. Just because you’re in a bad mood today doesn’t mean that’s your entire personality.” On the fact of a warming planet, the scientific consensus is clear: It is. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, 2013 ties with 2003 as the fourth-warmest year for the planet since records started being kept in 1880. Indeed, 2013 was the 37th consecutive year that global temperatures have been above average. And nine of the 10 warmest years on record have occurred in this century. The consequences could be catastrophic. While scientists disagree about some of them, there is broad agreement about drought, heat waves and rising sea levels. Currently, a “mega-drought” — 13 years long and counting — is afflicting the western United States, disrupting agriculture, destroying forest habitat and sparking fights over water supply. While climate scientists are reluctant to blame any one drought on climate change, they predict that droughts will become more commonplace. Then there was Hurricane Sandy, which was so damaging because of extensive flooding along the coasts of New York and New Jersey — the result
of sea levels that are higher than they used to be. One of Shepherd’s doctoral students will soon publish a paper showing an increase in extreme weather events, tied to climate change, in and around Atlanta, he said. Even if conservative politicians refuse to concede the evidence for climate change, insurance companies have already done so. Last year, Peter Hoeppe, who heads Geo Risks Research at a huge reinsurance firm called Munich Re, told The New York Times: “Numerous studies assume a rise in summer drought periods in North America in the future and an increasing probability of severe cyclones relatively far north along the U.S. East Coast in the long term. The rise in sea level caused by climate change will further increase the risk of storm surge.” The vast majority of Americans accept the evidence -- 67 percent, according to the Pew Research Center — but that masks a deeper divide within the Republican Party. Only 23 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents believe that global warming is caused by human activity, while 19 percent say the warming is due to natural patterns. Another 20 percent say they want more evidence, while 25 percent say they don’t believe the planet is warming at all — a belief that is especially popular among tea partiers. Their certainty is cold comfort.

Action show truth — Part 1
B Y TOM M OXLEY
State Representative Quote of the Week — “Dad expected me to clean barns and fork you know what. Little did he know that he was preparing me for my life in politics.” Senator Mike Johanns
y take — In the world of politics, I encourage you to pay less attention to what people say, and more attention to what they do. Their actions will show you the truth. As I have relayed to you in the past, our money or budget is the greatest reflection of the values we hold dear. We put our money where we see the most value. In our state government budgets we prioritize and place a dollar value on what we believe the populace needs. Examples are — education, mental health, roads, public safety, care of our frail elderly, economic development efforts, etc. In the last two years we have seen a monumental shift in the direction of who pays into our state coffers. In summary, medium and low-income folks are paying an increasing share of the tax burden, property owners are paying even more, while the highest income pay less and in many cases, now pay nothing. I believe most Kansans, including true
conservatives like me believe in fair and equitable taxation. In addition, we do not believe our state should be deficit spending or adopting the “borrow and spend” policies of D.C. I refuse to support reckless, non-transparent spending and sweeping changes in economic policy that roils the bond and credit markets. Nonsensical actions that make borrowing money more expensive and that harm our economy should stop. It would seem that the push to lower income taxes for some has overwhelmed our good sense to produce a balanced and sound budget and not borrow money nor shift the tax burden to property tax. Have some of our Kansas leaders forgotten their pledge to fiscal responsibility? I will continue to work towards a truly conservative and sound fiscal policy that reflects our Kansas values. Governor Sam Brownback delivered his State of the State message to legislators Wednesday night in Topeka and on Thursday (Jan. 16) his budget was released. Here are the key points: Kansas is spending more money than it is taking in. For FY 2015, taxes, interest, and agency earnings are expected to total $6.038 billion, but the Governor’s budget spends $6.2047 billion, a difference of $166.7 million to the negative.
The Governor’s budget
The slight of hand not reflected in the above spending is $200 million more in spending that is coming directly out of the Kansas Deptartment of Transportation funds for school transportation and other immediate needs (see transportation in Part 2). Receipts are down because of the income tax cuts, with even deeper cuts coming in future years. However, in testimony to legislative committees last Thursday, Interim Budget Director Jon Hummell said, “You can do both” meaning cut taxes and increase spending. How? The Governor uses $530.5 million expected to be leftover from the FY 2014 budget. So, even if spending remains flat, the budget is unsustainable in the future unless revenues increase dramatically. To date, there is no strong evidence that will occur. The ending balance for FY 2014
(which ends June 30) is $530.5 million, or 8.8 percent. The ending balance for FY 2015 in the proposed budget is $247.6 million, or 4.0 percent. At this rate of spending, Kansas will be broke in two years. And, that is without a Kansas Supreme Court ruling that could order hundreds of millions more in state funding for K-12 education.

TOPEKA — A fifth group of Kansas teachers has decertified from the state’s main teachers union in what a rival organization described as a statewide trend. Teachers in the tiny Spearville Unified School District near Dodge City voted Wednesday to leave the Kansas National Education Association, meaning the teachers will no longer negotiate their annual contracts through a union local, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. Spearville employs about 30 teachers, according to the Kansas State Department of Education website. The five districts that have decertified in the past year — Deerfield, Caldwell, Vermillion and Rolla — have about 145 teachers combined. A spokesman for the Association of American Educators, the KNEA’s non-union rival, said the latest defections are part of a trend across Kansas and indicate many teachers are frustrated with the political activities of the KNEA or its parent organization, the National Education Association. “A lot of these local educators aren’t finding value with the state and national unions,” said Alix Freez, a spokeswoman for AAE in Alexandria, Va., describing the defections as “clearly a statewide trend.” AAE and its Kansas branch, KANAAE, compete with KNEA for members. KANAAE informs teachers on how to certify form KNEA and offers services such as insur-

ance teachers might otherwise get through KNEA, but it doesn’t bargain teacher contracts. KNEA calls AAE and its state branch front groups for anti-union interests whose goal is to undermine collective bargaining. While AAE says it isn’t opposed to bargaining rights, it considers collective bargaining an “outdated” model and chooses not to engage in it. KNEA says it has about 25,000 members, and KANAAE says it has about 1,300. KNEA spokesman Marcus Baltzell said KANAEE uses “smoke and mirrors” tactics and seems to be pushing for decertifications. “They take your money for an insurance policy,” Baltzell said. “That’s not what we are.” KNEA and AAE also accuse each other of being partisan, but both say they aren’t. areas in the current budget year — the state pension system, public schools and the state’s share of Medicaid health care programs for the poor, elderly and disabled. Budget projections show the state eating into its cash reserves that were built over recent years. The declines are related to ongoing government expenses and cuts in the state income tax rates enacted in 2012 that reduced the amount of revenue Kansas collects. rejected arguments that Maestas should have been confined to a state mental hospital rather than sentenced to prison.
Kansan pleads no contest to felony murder
ERIE — A second defendant has pleaded no contest in last year’s arson death of a southeast Kansas woman. The Chanute Tribune reports Brian Shields entered the plea to felony murder Thursday in Neosho County District Court. Co-defendant Michelle Voorhees pleaded no contest Jan. 15 to seconddegree murder and agreed to testify against Shields. Both were accused in the smoke inhalation death of 36-year-old Cristy Wiles. Wiles’ remains were found last Feb. 6 in the rubble of a Chanute home. Prosecutors said the defendants went to the house to retrieve property stolen from Voorhees. County Attorney Linus Thuston said the two ran out of the house after Shields placed a pipe bomb on a mattress and lit the fuse. The device did not explode, but set fire to the house.
High court upholds Hugoton homicide verdict
TOPEKA — The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld the first-degree murder conviction of a southwest Kansas man in the August 2009 stabbing death of his mother. In a unanimous decision Friday, the court rejected arguments that Michael Maestas Jr., of Hugoton, received an unfair trial because of the prosecutor’s comments in closing arguments in Stevens County District Court. The high court concluded the prosecutor did mischaracterize testimony from Maestas’ sister but said the incorrect statement was not intentional. Justice Dan Biles also wrote that the evidence against Maestas was overwhelming. Maestas was arrested after calling 911 to report he had stabbed his mother, Lorenza, in their Hugoton home. The Supreme Court also
Brownback: Kansas economy can sustain budget goals

ern Kansas county jail question whether the staff reacted quickly enough when she began foaming at the mouth and collapsed. Brenda Sewell, 58, died Wednesday after becoming ill at the Sherman County jail in Goodland, two days after she and her sister were arrested for speeding and a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper found a small amount of marijuana in their car, The Kansas City Star reported. Sherman County and Goodland officials said they would not comment on the death until the investigation is complete. Sewell carried medication for several medical problems, including hepatitis C, thyroid problems and fibromyalgia, said her younger brother, Rick Ray, of Kansas City. Ray said his sister bought a small amount of marijuana in Colorado to ease the pain and nausea from her illnesses. “She had some health problems but nothing that was life-threatening; it was under control,” he said. The sister who was with her, Joy Biggs, told her family that jailers would not give Sewell her medications because she did not carry the pills in the original bottles and jailers couldn’t identify the medicines, Ray said. Sewell hadn’t been feeling well since Monday and was sent to a hospital on Tuesday. She was returned to the jail Wednesday, where she began foaming at the mouth. Biggs told her family she began cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and the
family doesn’t believe jailers responded as promptly as they could, Ray said. Sewell was rushed to the hospital in Goodland, where she was pronounced dead. The investigation by Goodland police likely won’t be finished for several days, Goodland Police Chief Cliff Couch said.
Man facing life in prison for molesting girl
TOPEKA — A 43-year-old Kansas man could spend the rest of his life in federal prison after being sentenced under “Jessica’s Law” for molesting a 4-yearold girl. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Alvin Houston III was convicted Dec. 12 of one count of aggravated criminal sodomy. He was sentenced last week to life in prison without parole for 40 years. Houston was arrested after his victim told her grandmother what was happening. The grandmother spoke with an elementary school teacher who contacted the Coffey County Sheriff’s Office on behalf of the family. Coffey County Attorney Douglas Witteman says Houston gave investigators a detailed confession when he was interviewed. The former Ottawa-area resident previously was convicted of trying to rape someone under 14 in Franklin County in 2000.

Ike’s Place ribbon cutting ceremony
Obama to focus on ‘opportunity,’ less on ‘inequality’
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Income inequality is out, “ladders of opportunity” is in. Eager to dispel claims that President Barack Obama is engaging in “class warfare” as he heads into his State of the Union address next week, the White House is deemphasizing phrases focusing on economic disparity and turning instead to messages about creating paths of opportunity for the poor and middle class. The adjustment reflects an awareness that Obama’s earlier language put him at risk of being perceived as divisive and exposed him to criticism that his rhetoric was exploiting the gap between haves and have-nots. On Dec. 4 Obama delivered a sweeping economic address where he declared that “increasing inequality is most pronounced in our country, and it challenges the very essence of who we are as a people.” He used the word “inequality” 26 times in his speech that day. A month later the word has all but disappeared at the White House. In his most recent remarks about his economic agenda, the president made no mention of chasms between rich and poor. Rather, he stressed policies that help move low income people into the middle class. The modification in language does not represent a shift from Obama’s underlying economic message, which White House officials note has been a consistent and prominent theme of his political life. One senior White House official said the December speech and its attention to economic inequality was designed to highlight one symptom associated with shrinking opportunities for the middle class. But the official, who asked for anonymity to discuss the strategy behind the economic message, said the president’s overarching message has been his desire to reverse that trend and expand opportunities. “What you want to do is focus on the aspirational side of this, lifting people up, not on just complaining about a lack of fairness or inequality,” said Paul Begala, a former top adviser to President Bill Clinton who consults with White House officials. “Watch the State of the Union, I’d be surprised if he uses phrases like inequality, which suggests a leveling down. If you talk about the middle class, it suggests a lifting up.”
The Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for Ike’s Place Bar and Grill Tuesday.

Husband is having an affair with brother’s wife
Dear Annie: A year ago, I found out that my husband had been cheating on me at his brother’s house. He was having an affair with “Charlie’s” wife’s sister. My husband cheated more than 30 years ago with a friend of Charlie’s, and we divorced over it. We got back together two years later. I have forgiven my husband for his most recent affair, and we renewed our wedding vows six months ago, but I cannot forgive his brother. Over the years, Charlie has tried his best to split us up. I no longer allow my husband to visit Charlie unless I am with him. Dealing with this relationship causes me severe headaches, and I’ve lost 50 pounds. My doctor says the stress is killing me. I know Charlie will continue trying to break up my marriage. What should I do to stop this nightmare? — Brokenhearted in Indiana Dear Brokenhearted: Charlie may have encouraged the cheating, but your husband had to cooperate. This is now your husband’s responsibility. He needs to tell his brother to knock it off, that he isn’t interested in having an affair, and that if Charlie tries to break up his marriage, the relationship is over. Charlie has to understand that there are consequences to interfering in your lives, but his brother is the one who must make it stick. Dear Annie: We have a friend who asks for help almost every day with repairs, assistance with his computer, a ride (he never offers to pay for gas) and on and on. This man is 75 years old, doesn’t do much, lives alone and probably needs the companionship. My husband is a kind man and would never say no. Please advise people to have some consideration for their neighbors and do things for themselves so they don’t intrude. My husband and I enjoy our time together, and too often, this “friend” stops by needing something. — No Private Time Dear Private: The man is 75 and lives alone. Perhaps he is not capable of doing for himself those things he asks of you. And he seems lonely. We know that stopping by too often is a nuisance, but we’re going to ask you to think about this differently. Welcome him as an act of kindness, instead of resenting the time he takes from you. Introduce him to others in your neighborhood so they, too, can keep him company. Set a few boundaries: It’s
Dennis the Menace
OK to tell him you are busy when he drops in unexpectedly, and to ask him to fill the tank once in a while, provided he can afford it. Schedule one day a week for him, letting him know you are available only on that day. If you and your husband stick to that schedule, he will eventually adapt, and you will feel less resentful. Dear Annie: I had to write after reading the letter from “Joining the Letting Go Club,” whose adult children have cut them out of their lives. I worked in a long-term care facility for 10 years. I’ve seen adult children drive up to the door, unload the parent and take off — forever. I saw an adult son berate his mother until she signed a power of attorney. He then pillaged all of her assets and refused to spend any money on her care or provide documentation so she could qualify for Medicaid. One Christmas, a son and daughter-in-law came for their annual visit and brought gifts, but took them home because Mom was asleep. They said she wouldn’t know the difference. Usually the parental rejection involves money. Sometimes, the kids know they are not in the will, or the parents refused to appoint one of them power of attorney. Sometimes, the parents have gifted their children so much that they have nothing left. Your advice to this couple was solid. Enjoy each other and fill it with people who expect nothing in return except friendship. — Know in New York

More mistakes will be made in the name of obedience than in the name of rebellion. CANCER (June 22—July 22). Suddenly, it’s as though you are plopped into someone else’s movie. A quick look around and you’ll decide that your role is obvious. Whether it’s the bad guy, best friend or love interest, you’ll play it well. LEO (July 23—Aug. 22). Between friends, an issue has been nearly hashed out to death. No progress will be made on this. No one wins. Let go first, and the other person will follow suit. Sweet relief! VIRGO (Aug. 23—Sept. 22). It’s a good thing you are a forgiving person because people will give you plenty to forgive today. There will also be the choice to reprimand, teach or fight. Forgiveness is the easiest route. LIBRA (Sept. 23—Oct. 23). Lately life has been something of a cross—country desert highway — the same scenery mile after mile and it feels as though you’re going nowhere until suddenly, today, you arrive at an interesting destination. SCORPIO (Oct. 24—Nov. 21). Play it cool. Hold information back. Have better cards in your hands than the ones that you show. Keep treasures in storage. This you’ll do either because you are confident, or because you want to cultivate confidence. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22—Dec. 21). You will need your “true or false” filter on for much of the afternoon as bluff—ridden conversations will be like a game to see who has the best powers of detection. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22—Jan. 19). Giving yourself excellent advice is one thing. Taking your own advice is in the advanced realm of human behavior. So when you do this today, be sure to reward yourself in some way. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20—Feb. 18). It takes energy to decide, and today, you’d rather use your energy elsewhere. Wait until you feel moved to act, and you won’t have to decide a single thing. PISCES (Feb. 19—March 20). You could try to sort out the logistics of a problem, but likely everything will boil down to the basic nature of the people you have cast in the various roles of this work. Change your lineup and you’ll get better results.

Bombings rock Egyptian Tough shoot for capital, killing six people Paltrow’s sci-fi ‘Young Ones’
By The Associated Press
CAIRO — A truck bomb struck the main security headquarters in Cairo on Friday, one of a string of bombings targeting police within a 10-hour period, killing six people. The most significant attack yet in the Egyptian capital fueled a furious backlash against the Muslim Brotherhood amid rising fears of a militant insurgency. The mayhem on the eve of the third anniversary of Egypt’s once-hopeful revolution pointed to the dangerous slide Egypt has taken since last summer’s military ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi: A mounting confrontation between the military-backed government and Islamist opponents amid the escalating violence. In the hours after the blast, angry residents — some chanting for the “execution” of Brotherhood members — joined police in clashes with the group’s supporters holding their daily street protests against the government. Smoke rose over Cairo from fires, and fighting around the country left 14 more people dead. Saturday, the anniversary of the start of the 18-day uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak, raised the potential for new violence, as both military supporters and the Islamists vowed to take to the streets with rival rallies. After Friday’s blasts, interim President Adli Mansour vowed to “uproot terrorism,” just as the government crushed a militant insurgency in the 1990s. The state “will not show them pity or mercy,” he said. “We ... will not hesitate to take the necessary measures.” That could spell an escalation in the crackdown that the government has waged against Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood since his July 3 ouster. Thousands of Islamists have already been arrested and hundreds killed, with authorities accusing the group of being behind militant violence. The Brotherhood, which allied with some radical groups while in power, denies the claim, saying the government is using it to justify its drive to eliminate it as a rival. The crackdown has expanded to silence other forms of dissent, with arrests of secular activists critical of the military, security forces and the new administration. For activists, that has raised deep concerns over a return of a police state despite the government’s promises of democracy. But among a broad swath of the public, those concerns are eclipsed by fear of the wave of militant bombings and shootings since the coup, which have largely targeted police but increasingly hit in public areas taking civilian casualties.

PARK CITY, Utah — Jake Paltrow’s “Young Ones” was shot in South Africa over 35 days amid scorpions, snakes and an average daily temperature of 110 degrees. Still, the crew was determined to make a film that star Kodi Smit-McPhee calls “truthful, but with a twist.” A hybrid of Western and sci-fi genres, Paltrow’s second film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, is a murderous tale of revenge set in the future when water is scarce and many have fled a fruitless land in search of a better life. Those who’ve stayed behind scrape by, while easily turning on each other. Michael Shannon plays Ernest Holm, a tough yet warmhearted deliverer of supplies living with his children, Mary and Jerome, played by Elle Fanning and Smit-McPhee. Nicholas Hoult, as Fanning’s beau, Flem Lever, also stars. “The landscape really puts you in the right mindset and really tells the story,” said Shannon in an interview at Sundance.
The tough environment took its toll on the production, Paltrow says. “There were a few hydration cases and accidents,” he said. “One of our production guys flipped a car. We were up on the sides of mountains.” Luckily, Paltrow added, the driver was fine. “He walked away.” “Jake was very conscientious and was always wishing everyone to be careful,” said Shannon. Paltrow’s first feature film, a comedy called “The Good Night,” premiered at Sundance in 2007 and starred Paltrow’s big sister, Gwyneth Paltrow. This time around, he says work on his second effort was especially difficult — and not just because of its challenging location. Although Paltrow comes from a Hollywood family — his father is late producer-director Bruce Paltrow and his mother is actress Blythe Danner — the director says his lineage hasn’t made filmmaking any easier. In fact, his name only helped his career earlyon, “when I got jobs as a production assistant,” he said. “But making your own films is a lot about trial and error.” Neither Pollock nor a representative from Planned Parenthood Advocates attended the meeting. On Planned Parenthood Advocates’ Facebook page, the organization stated it was confident in the validity of the quote. The organization stated it was informed by a lobbyist who observed the hearing. Though Pollock’s quotation of Rothlisberg was indirect, Planned Parenthood Advocates’ and the photo shared by Hensley contain varying direct quotes. A comment from Planned Parenthood Advocates’ made Jan. 20 under its original Facebook post stated: “Though there may be slight differences in the wording of Rep. Rothlisberg’s quotation between our account and a (photo) that has recently become popular, we are fully confident that Rep. Rothlisberg made the comment in question, and are happy we can help remind him that politicians ought not try to practice medicine.” through this.” Outside of fundraising, each child already paid $250 for the trip. GCCC was granted an extension with a double payment due in May. The next payment to the tour company is due in February. Gooden thanks the community for their financial support, but said the need is greater now. “We’re hoping that the community will help us out,” Gooden said. If the Colorado trip is not possible, Gooden said the choir is still going to make a smaller travel plan. “We’re going to go on and make the best we can out of this situation,” Gooden said. “I’ve got a good group of kids that’s going to give an awesome performance at KMEA and hopefully in Colorado,” Gooden said.

holders paying for OB/GYN insurance,” Rothlisberg said in a statement submitted earlier Friday to The Daily Union. “The picture circulating around social media with a supposed ‘quote’ is a deliberately fictitious political ploy further perpetrated by the Senate Minority Leader, who himself was not in the committee hearing. “This deceit is unfitting of a state leader and a childish distraction from the work that the people of Kansas elected us to do.” However, in a phone interview Friday, Hensley told The Daily Union he stands by the post he shared on his Facebook page. Hensley said his office has five different sources, including a committee member, who were in attendance and relayed what Rothlisberg said. “I’m on very solid ground when I make that kind of post on Facebook,”

award. Glessner passed away earlier this month following a battle with illness. His son Colin now operates the business. “It was really a great honor to accept (the award) on behalf of my father,” Colin said Thursday after the meeting. He added accepting the award brought tears to his eyes. Jim and Michele Brethour received the Grassland Conservation Award for their work to protect and maintain the Kansas tallgrass prairie and the county’s agricultural heritage. The Brethours received the award for restoring a pasture near their home, south of Junction City. They enrolled the pasture property in the United States Department of Agriculture’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program to assist in removing unwanted cedar trees and brush. Today, Jim and others are able to run cattle on the property. Jim is no stranger to a Geary County Conservation District award. His grandfa-

ther won the Bankers Award in 1955. “We still have some of that land he won it with, so it makes it kind of special,” Jim said. Bob and Gloria Cox of Manhattan also rehabilitated pasture land, but on top of that succeeded in creating a thriving wildlife habitat. After purchasing 100 acres on Clarks Creek Road in Geary County in 2009, Bob, Gloria and others transformed the property in only two years. Bob said he had a vision. With the help of Gloria and others, his vision came to fruition. “When I retired from the Army, I was pretty sure I wanted to buy land in the country,” he said. “I was the Green Acres guy. I really had no idea what I was doing. “The whole thing’s been a lot of hard work, but it’s been more fun that it has been work.”
Hensley said. Hensley added he’s not surprised Rothlisberg claims he didn’t say what others say he did because “it was a pretty bad thing to say. “It shows his insensitivity to women’s reproductive rights,” Hensley said. Hensley said he couldn’t immediately reveal his sources. Rothlisberg questioned the validity of those sources. “To me, if you actually have the source, you’ll name it,” he said. “If you have integrity, name the sources.” Rothlisberg said he’d be willing to take a lie detector test administered by the KBI to show he didn’t say what others believe he said. Others who last week took to social media to share what they’ve been told Rothlisberg said included Haley Pollock, communications director for Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis, and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Kansas and Mid-Missouri. performances, those trips also provide educational opportunities. “We call ourselves the musical ambassadors of Junction City,” Gooden said. “When we go to different places like Colorado Springs, we’re representing the community.” The choir consists of 60 members and performs regularly in various sites in the community. Despite the financial setback and shock, the children are still rehearsing. The children are scheduled to perform at a gathering for Kansas Music Educators Association (KMEA) in February. “I’m not sure that they really understand everything that’s going on,” Gooden said. “They’re hanging in there and I told them we’re going to stay positive and work

about his prior access to the funds. The total cost of the trip is $35,000. They were unable to make the first January payment of more than $8,000 due to the theft. “Prior to Christmas vacation, we noticed there was money missing and I questioned him through emails and texts,” Gooden said. “He finally agreed to meet with us and he lied to us.” Those lies involved Irwin needing the money for liver cancer, according to Gooden. Choir leaders asked for proof of his medical condition, but no official documents were provided. “We found out he wasn’t sick,” Gooden said. “We decided it was time to go forth and turn him in.” Gooden was told the money would be replaced by Jan. 13, with more to add on top of it. But that never happened. “We may get some of that back with restitution, but

that may be a long process,” he said. Now, the choir is scrambling trying to replace those funds for the performance tour. Some of the scheduled stops include Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods and Cave of the Winds. “We’re not cancelling the trip right now,” he said. “We’re hoping that we can do this. But $8,000 is a big hole right now.” Every two years, the choir plans a major tour after the school year ends. In June 2012, the ensemble travelled to Branson, Mo. Along with

VALLEY CENTER — Twice the Junction City boys’ basketball team fought back from a deficit when it seemed Topeka Seaman had put the game away. But the Blue Jays needed a third. Senior Danny Thornton’s three from the corner as time drained from the clock with Junction City down 65-62 in overtime missed. Senior Semaj Johnson grabbed the rebound but the Blue Jays couldn’t get another shot up before the buzzer, losing in the consolation semifinal of the Valley Center tournament Friday.

the first quarter, including one at the buzzer from nearly half-court at the buzzer on his way to 16 points. He finished the game with 16 points before fouling out with a minute left in regulation. The Jays also received an unexpected offensive burst from senior Ja’Male Morrow in the first half.

Columbus defender Michael Parkhurst has been added to the U.S. roster for a Feb. 1 exhibition against South Korea at Carson, Calif., but Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley was not included in the 22-man group. Parkhurst was acquired by the Crew on Jan. 13, the same day Toronto obtained Bradley from Roma. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Friday he had dropped five players who had been with the team during a training camp in California and Sao Paulo: Colorado defenders Chris Klute and Shane O’Neill; Kansas City defenders Chance Myers and Seth Sinovic; and Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall. The U.S. team started training Jan. 6 at Carson, Calif., and shifted to Brazil for a week-anda-half at Sao Paulo FC, the facility the Americans will use as their base during the World Cup.

The chirps pervaded the Shenk Gymnasium at Junction City High School. It seemed every trip up and down the court came to an abrupt halt at the harsh sound of a whistle. The fans, visibly angered, began to show their displeasure with cutting remarks sent toward the trio of men officiating the game between the Junction City girls’ basketball team and Highland Park Friday night. At the end of the day, the visiting Scots converted more of their chances from the free throw line, handing the Blue Jays a 50-44 loss.
Iowa State guard Bubu Palo remains eligible to play for the Cyclones after the Iowa Supreme Court ruled in his favor Friday. The state’s highest court denied a request by the Iowa Board of Regents for an immediate stay of a judge’s ruling last week that allowed Palo to return to the team. Palo was suspended in 2012 after being charged with second-degree sexual assault. The charge was dropped a year ago, and the university’s Office of Judicial Affairs cleared Palo to return to the team. But Palo was found to have violated Iowa State’s student code of conduct by president Steven Leath and kicked off the team on Aug. 30. Palo is listed on the roster for Saturday’s home game against Kansas State.

Junction City knocked down just 20-40 shots from the charity stripe in the contest. “We were nervous, it was a mental thing,” sophomore Abryana Dixon said. “We practice every day, free throws and then we get out here and we let people get in our head.” The whistles started early and never wavered. The officials stuck to their chops, maintaining their position on calling it tight. Both teams found themselves in the double bonus in the first quarter. “This is the crew that we had at Lawrence, and if you look at the stats at Lawrence, I think they steal the show a little bit more than the players who are out there,” a very concise Junction City coach Nate Parks said following the game. Junction City senior Kori Kamm carried her team to an early 10-7 lead by scoring six points in the first. But after that she struggled to finish. Kamm then became the first player knocked out of the game due to fouls when she was called for a charge trying to drive to the hoop with 2:49 remaining and her team down 38-34. The next trip down the floor, freshman Darja Russell met the same fate, also on a charge. Please see Girls, 2B
Phil Mickelson withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open on Friday night because of muscle pain in his back.

Mickelson said after the round that he feared getting into bad habits by altering his swing to keep his back from hurting. This is hometown tournament and he said he wanted to keep playing. His management company released a statement late Friday evening that Mickelson had decided to withdraw. Mickelson said he would talk to doctors to figure out the best course of action.

Kansas star Joel Embiid on way to NBA?
B Y D AVE S KRETTA
LAWRENCE — Joel Embiid bends slightly to get through the doorway, and then bends even deeper to peer into the refrigerator. He pushes aside chilled bottles of Coca-Cola and Fanta and then, upon getting to the very back of the cooler, lets his massive shoulders slump one last time. There’s no pink lemonade. Again. This is the guy who’s suddenly the biggest thing in college basketball? The 7-footer who’s gone from raw, unheralded prospect to phenom? The guy who has started to overshadow fellow freshman Andrew Wiggins while leading No. 8 Kansas to the top of the Big 12? Yep, this is the guy NBA scouts believe could be the No. 1 pick in the June draft, worrying not about his future millions but his inability to land a bottle of Minute Made. “Out again?” Embiid asks one of the members of the Kansas communications staff. “You keep drinking it all!” she replies with a smile. The friendly ribbing is part of Embi-

id’s earnest naivety. It’s almost as if the best player on one of the nation’s hottest teams doesn’t realize just how good he’s become. He runs like a gazelle and his footwork honed on the soccer fields of his native Cameroon would probably astonish Fred Astaire. His touch is smooth as velvet and his work ethic so unfailing that some think he could be the next Hakeem Olajuwon. “Joel has a chance to be an NBA allstar,” Jayhawks coach Bill Self said. “There’s a lot of great players you recruit, and they have great careers for you. But do you look at them and say, ‘He can be one of the best 24 players in the world?’ He can be in that class.” The happy-go-lucky freshman only averages 11 points and eight rebounds, but everyone knows numbers can be misleading. Just ask Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford, who watched Embiid go for 16 points and nine boards in a high-profile showdown at Allen Fieldhouse last weekend. “Goodness, he’s so talented,” Ford said afterward, shaking his head. “He’s so good.” Embiid’s backstory is just as good, Please see Embiid, 3B

much better job of going inside and got many more things going in the paint.” Trailing 50-45 in the fourth, it was a Wilds three, followed by a steal and fast-break layup that tied the game. Junior Tanner Lueker made a layup to put Junction City on top, 52-51 before each team failed to convert all of their free-throw opportunities in the final minute, entering overtime tied 53-53. Lueker pushed the Blue Jays comebacks, scoring 10 points in the final period and overtime as Junction City desperately tried to keep the game alive. “He’s scored well this weekend,” Battle said. “That might not be the best thing in the final couple of minutes when your point guard is scoring it means other’s aren’t scoring. Tanner’s playing very hard and doing a lot of good things for us.” Junction City fell behind by six to start the extra period but sophomore Josh Bryan and Thornton each knocked down a trey to tie the game at 62. But after Seaman’s Reid Mogart missed the back end of his free throws, the Vikings grabbed the offensive rebound and Reid Fehr drained a basket with 10 seconds left to take a 65-62 lead. “(Rebounds) are something we’ve got to work on, something we’ve got to get better (at),” Battle said. “They went very hard to the glass and

“(Kamm’s) one of our key players and if she’s not smart enough to stay out of foul trouble, that hurts us,” Parks said. Junior Cassidy Meadows, sophomore Kealee Rains and freshman Allison McKenzie also fouled out of the game. There were 69 total fouls called in the game between the two teams. “I think there were some fouls that shouldn’t have been called,” McKenzie said. “But you just have to roll with what they call, you can’t change the refs.” After not scoring in the first quarter, Rains began to heat up in the second. But after halftime, she made her presence felt. With the game tied 22-22, Rains hit a 3-point shot on back-to-back trips down the floor on her way to a team-best 19

points. However, in the final quarter, Highland Park, led by Sha’Von Ray, made 15 free throws to take the lead and then hold off Junction City. “We tried to change our style of how we play defense and offense,” Parks said. “We did it for a while, some girls kind of forgot what we were doing and decided to do something else. And that’s when the game changed, when we started taking jumpers when we should’ve been driving to the basket and getting fouls.” Junction City (3-7, 1-6) travels to Lawrence Free State for the Firebird Midseason Classic Thursday.

Still, Embiid was so raw that he was still playing junior varsity two years ago, or stuck on the bench behind Kentucky recruit Dakari Johnson. But Mbah a Moute knew Embiid would make strides if he could just get on the court, so he started looking for other places to play. Together, they stumbled upon The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla., and unknowingly answered a prayer. “One day, I literally got down on my knees and prayed God would send me a 7-foot center,” said Justin Harden, the school’s coach and athletic director. “And he sent me Joel.” Harden is joking, of course. But the truth is he accepted Embiid sight-unseen. “They kind of felt like he was underappreciated,” Harden said. “But when he came in, you could tell the way he moved, the way he shot, his coordination — you could tell he was special.” Special in the kind of way that can’t be taught. “I played soccer,” Harden said, “and he has just phenomenal footwork, flipping the ball back and forth, up in the air, between
For a moment, the Junction City boys’ basketball team was flying. As he does so often, senior Danny Thornton drilled a 3-point shot. This one fell in the first moments of the Blue Jays’ first game of the Valley Center January Jam tournament. But Olathe Northwest didn’t back down from the challenge and promptly struck back. The Ravens delivered a knockout punch with a 13-0 run that spanned the end of the second and beginning of the third quarter. Junction City (4-5, 2-3) never recovered, losing 48-34. “I wish we had better focus, I wish we played better,” Junction City coach Pat Battle said on on the radio after the loss. “It’s not that we didn’t play hard, but we didn’t play well, we struggled to score. We still held them, and they had a lot of possessions, we still held them to 48 points so we’re still defending but the bottom line is we have to be more focused and we have to maximize our possessions.”
Jays lose to Olathe Northwest
In the first quarter, the Blue Jays stood tall, responding to each blow delivered by the Ravens. Trailing 4-3, senior Jonathan Wilds stole the ball and outraced every Raven down the court for the layup to put Junction City on top. Later in the quarter, Thornton hit another three to tie the score 8-8. Then, junior guard Tanner Lueker hit a two to put Junction City ahead 10-8. That was the last time the Blue Jays had the lead. Junction City couldn’t handle the size of Olathe Northwest, particularly Morgan Funk, who torched them for 15 points, 10 of which came in the second half. But it wasn’t the Blue Jays’ defense that ultimately cost them the chance to advance to the winners’ bracket. It was an inability to convert offensive opportunities. Battle said his team didn’t get enough second chances to be effective. The Jays let the bigger players on Olathe Northwest outhustle them to rebounds. “We did too much standing around and watching today,” he said. “A guy goes up and shoots and there’s nobody around to rebound the basketball. We’ve got to be able to rebound, we’ve got to do a much better job as a team, and that’s bigs, that’s guards of rebounding the basketball, especially on the offensive end.” Lueker and Thornton each scored 13 points to lead the Blue Jays. Wilds and senior Semaj Johnson were the only other players from Junction City to score, with four points apiece.

the kind of stuff Disney spins into feature films. He didn’t pick up a basketball until a few years ago, when a friend informed him that very few 7-footers succeed in soccer. A couple months later, Embiid was lured to a basketball camp in the capital of Yaounde run by Timberwolves forward Luc Mbah a Moute, one of just two players from Cameroon to have played in the NBA. Embiid didn’t think he was good enough to compete at the camp, and even now admits “I didn’t do too good.” Mbah a Moute, however, saw unpolished potential. “He was doing stuff that guys been playing basketball for years do,” Mbah a Moute told The Associated Press. “Some stuff that guys his size have trouble with, he was doing it with ease, like running in transition, catching the ball, spinning and finishing.” Mbah a Moute knew Embiid only needed a chance. He persuaded Embiid’s parents to let him move 6,000 miles to Florida, and
his legs. And then we’d play dodge ball and the kid would throw the ball and I’d have to tell him, “Joel, relax! You’re going to kill somebody!” Several schools started to recruit Embiid, and he ultimately chose Kansas over Texas and Florida. At the time, Self thought he had the potential to be the No. 1 pick in the draft in a few years, but that timetable has advanced more rapidly than anybody could have imagined. Now, after coming off the bench early in the season, Embiid has become perhaps the most valuable player on a team loaded with pro prospects. “Amazing talent,” offered one NBA scout,
who spoke on condition of anonymity because league rules prevent him from speaking about players still in college. “I think he’s the No. 1 prospect because of his steady improvement and being a freaky 7-foot athlete.” That’s assuming Embiid puts his name in the draft. Lounging in the bleachers at Allen Fieldhouse this week, sweat dripping from a recently ended practice, Embiid told the AP that he’s still not sure whether he’s ready for the NBA. “When I see those guys,” he said with a shake of his head, “man, they’re really big.”

Kansas Day celebrates the states birthday
ansas Day is right around the corner, Jan. 29, and the museum is gearing up for the big day. The museum participates all over the school district by bring our traveling trunks to classrooms to share state and local history with the children. Do you wonder why we celebrate Kansas Day? It is to celebrate our unique history and to wish Kansas a happy birthday. Kansas became the 34th state on Jan. 29, 1861. Kansas Day was started in 1877 by Alexander Copley, a teacher in Paola who wanted to make Kansas history come alive for his students. He challenged the students to find as much information about the state as they could. The students spent two weeks reading through books and asking questions of family, friends and the community. On Jan. 29 he gave the students the opportunity to show what they had learned. The only downside to the day was that the school room was too small to accommodate everyone who wished to hear the presentations. Two years later Copley became the superintendent of schools in Wichita, and the popularity of the day quickly spread. In 1882 the first North-
Museum Musings western Teachers Association was held in Beloit. At the meeting it was decided that a small pamphlet should be published to give educators information about the state that could be used to celebrate the day. Two thousand copies of the pamphlet, called Kansas Day, were printed by Del Valentine, of the Clay Center Dispatch. Every teacher in the state received one and it was briefly used as a textbook in the state normal school in Emporia. So how much Kansas trivia do you know? Don’t worry, we have some to share with you. Here are some fun facts to jump-start your learning about this great state: Part of Kansas was included in the Louisiana Purchase. President Thomas Jefferson bought the land from the French with no idea of what was there. He sent the Lewis and Clark expedition to explore the new territory. During their expedition, they passed through the eastern edge of Kansas. Kansas takes its name
from a tribe of Native American Indians, the Kansas, whose name means “People of the South Wind.” They are also referred to as the Kaw. There were many other tribes living in the territory that would become Kansas; the Osage, the Pawnee, and the Quivira all had permanent villages. Many tribes had hunting grounds in the western plains such as the Comanche, Kiowa, Arapahoe, Southern Cheyenne, Cuartelejo Apache and the Kiowa Apache. These tribes are known as the plains Indians. They are more nomadic and followed the buffalo herds. The Spanish introduced horses to the plains. Horses changed the way the plains Indians traveled and hunted. Leavenworth is the oldest city in Kansas. The First Territorial Capital was built at Pawnee near Fort Riley by the first territorial governor, Andrew Reeder, who was pro slavery. At the first and only legislative session to take place at Pawnee laws with severe consequences were passed for anyone caught helping to free slaves. Many called these “Bogus Laws” because many of the proslavery supporters who voted were border jumpers and did not
have the right to vote. Reeder was soon in trouble with all the political factions. Even his supporters wanted him hanged because he had made illegal sales of lots in the city of Pawnee, which was in fact property owned by Fort Riley. The city of Codell may have the worst luck when it comes to tornadoes. They were struck on May 20 of 1916, 1917 and 1918. Dodge City is the windiest city in the state. Kansas was the first state to have an AfricanAmerican infantry regiment. The First Regiment Kansas Colored Infantry was formed in August 1862. Despite nationwide resistance to the group being acknowledged as a part of the military, they quickly saw action, a portion of the regiment engaged in battle with a rebel force at Butler, Missouri during the fall of 1862. In 1958 Frank and Dan Carney opened the first Pizza Hut in Wichita. By 1972 there were a thousand restaurants throughout the United States. The Pizza Hut in Manhattan’s Aggieville is the longest operating Pizza Hut in its original location. In 1973 the chain went international when the first United Kingdom Pizza
Hut was opened in Islington, London. In the late 1950s Omar Knedlik owned a Dairy Queen in Coffeyville. Not having a soda fountain he would keep the soda in the freezer sometimes until it froze. His customers loved this frozen soda drink. You can now buy it at almost any gas station. It is called an ICEE. Walter Chrysler, who started the car manufacturer Chrysler Corporation, was born in Wamego and grew up in Ellis. Jess Willard was born in
Pottawatomie County and became the world champion boxer when he defeated Jack Johnson in 1915. Mort Walker, known as the creator of the comic strip “Beetle Bailey,” was born in Kansas. There is so much more to learn about our state. Stop by the museum around Kansas Day and share with us your favorite Kansas facts. We love learning more about our favorite state.

“The thing about my dad that was interesting is that he was a very, very smart guy. He was very schooled. He was a Dartmouth grad. He was a business grad. He was a businessman. There was also this side of him -he was theatrical. He loved entertaining. And at the heart of his soul, he was a baseball player.” Russell said he hopes the “Bastards” documentary helps his own children learn about his past because he briefly played minor league baseball. He also remembered tougher times with his father. “He was a dangerous guy. I don’t know if I said this in the documentary, but I pulled him out of not a few bars — a lot of bars. He was a strange man that way,” he said. “And I mean that in a good way. He was always fun to be around, always entertaining. And you never knew where the night was going to go with my dad.” Russell has several film projects in the works, including the next “Fast & Furious” and the Alaskaset “Race to Save Nome.” And there’s one other priority. “What I’m most interested in right now is opening up the wine saloon at the 1880 Union Hotel in Los Alamos, California. I make really high-end pinot and chardonnay. I love wine,” Russell said, smiling broadly.
Sundance fest a family affair for Russell
PARK CITY, Utah — Kurt Russell made the Sundance film festival a family affair. The 62-year-old actor split his time between various relatives at Robert Redford’s celebration of independent cinema, attending premieres for three films. His 34-year-old daughter Kate Hudson co-stars in Zach Braff’s “Wish I Was Here.” Son Wyatt Russell, 27, appears in the crime thriller “Cold in July.” And more members of the Russell clan pop up in “The Battered Bastards of Baseball,” a documentary about Russell’s father, Bing, directed by his nephews Maclain and Chapman Way. (Russell’s longtime partner Goldie Hawn was also in town briefly, but she left to deliver a speech about meditation at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.) “It’s time to prepare the next generation, get them ready to take over. I feel positive about my family members that way. They’re on the move,” Russell said in an interview alongside his nephews. Russell’s father was a long-time character actor — he played Deputy Clem Foster on “Bonanza” — who in 1973 decided to start an independent minor league baseball team in Portland. Bing Russell died in 2003. “He was a dichotomy,” Russell said of his father.

Space artifacts make way to new home
By The Associated Press
CHANTILLY Va. — Thousands of the nation’s historic air and space artifacts — including a Navy dive bomber from World War II and spacesuits from the Apollo era — are slowly being moved from a cramped site in Maryland to a state-of-the-art Smithsonian conservation hangar in northern Virginia. Faced with an ongoing shortage of suitable space to preserve its massive collection, the Smithsonian Institution’s new air and space warehouse is a bright spot for the museum complex. The National Air and Space Museum opened its Udvar-Hazy Center annex in Virginia 10 years ago with a design to store thousands of artifacts on display. Now over the past year, the site has also opened a massive $79 million restoration hangar and conservation lab with additional storage space for artifacts. Conservators will offer the public the first behindthe-scenes look at the facility during a free open house Saturday. Visitors can meet with curators and archivists and learn how aircraft and fragile pieces are cared for. Last year, the Smithsonian’s inspector general testified in Congress that the continued use of substandard facilities elsewhere posed a risk to important art and science collections. One site in Maryland was built in the 1950s and 1960s as a temporary holding site that became permanent. Chief Conservator Malcolm Collum said Thursday that the museum now has a conservation lab to meet the highest standards of any aerospace museum. “This is a huge leap forward,” he said. “The space we’re in now is approximately 10 times larger just in volume. But we’ve also increased our analytical capability immensely.” Apollo-era spacesuits, which are now 40 and 50 years old, are fragile, brittle and deteriorating, so conservators have been studying how to slow the decay. A special room in the new facility was designed as a cool, dark place to store the historic spacesuits. Other areas house artifacts from the past 110 years of flight, from wool and leather uniforms to artifacts from World War II. Conservators also are studying how to preserve aluminum artifacts from the latter half of the 20th century. So far, 8,000 artifacts have been relocated from the Smithsonian’s outdated Garber facility in suburban Maryland to the new site near Dulles International Airport in Virginia. They’re being moved one by one around the nation’s capital.
How some young stars have fared after arrests
By The Associated Press
Justin Bieber’s arrest Thursday on suspicion of driving under the influence and other offenses adds his name, and mug shot, to the gallery of stars who enjoyed early success and eventually ended up in handcuffs. Bieber’s fate remains unclear. While his arrest probably won’t lead to his deportation to Canada or a lengthy jail term, it is the latest incident in a string of bad behavior that has the pop singer under investigation for felony vandalism and facing a lawsuit over a confrontation with a paparazzo. Atlanta-based attorney Daniel Meachum, who has represented Michael Vick and Wesley Snipes, said that young stars face extraordinary scrutiny of their actions and their response to early trouble will resonate for years. “Wisdom only comes through 3x5.5 8/13/02 4:41 PM Page 1 experience,” Meachum said. “And, (Bieber) does not have that yet. What you hope is the people around him that have the wisdom can impart that wisdom on him
3x5.5 8/13/02 4:41 PM Page 1
and to him in such a way that it keeps him from making some of the mistakes that he could make in the future.” Here’s how some young stars have fared after their arrests: A star of Disney films whose acting received early praise and attention, Lohan’s 2007 two arrests for DUI and drug possession still haunts the actress today. While the 27-year-old has put those cases behind her, she remains on probation for a necklace theft case and lying to police about her role in a crash in Santa Monica, Calif. After several stints in jail and rehab, a judge ordered the “Mean Girls” star to remain in treatment until her probation ends later this year. A return to acting glory remains elusive, despite several high-profile — and critically drubbed — roles. The R&B’s 2009 arrest hours before the Grammy Awards for the brutal beating of then-girlfriend Rihanna shattered Brown’s squeaky-clean image.
The singer’s career rebounded and he went on to win a Grammy Award, but has stumbled in recent months with allegations that he lied about performing his community service, didn’t exchange the proper information after a fender-bender and hit a man outside a Washington, D.C., hotel. Brown now faces a tight deadline to complete 1,000 hours of community labor and court cases on both coasts before he can put the legal consequences of his attack behind him. A young star of the 1970s TV series “One Day at a Time,” Phillips was arrested in 1977 for public drunkenness and cocaine possession. She was fired from the show and struggled with addiction for years. In 2008 she pleaded guilty to felony drug possession after an airport screener found her with a small amount of drugs. The case was eventually dismissed after she successfully completed a drug diversion program. Phillips occasionally appears
in small TV roles and wrote a memoir that revealed she had a decade-long sexual relationship with her father, pop star John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas. Furlong’s role in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” made him a star at age 14, but he’s struggled in recent years with addiction and several domestic violencerelated cases. He avoided jail time when he was sentenced in July to three months in rehab and counseling. His career in major Hollywood productions has been dormant for years. O’Neal made Hollywood history when she became the youngest person at age 10 to win an acting Oscar for her role in “Paper Moon.” The actress detailed her long struggles with addiction in a 2004 memoir, but was arrested four years later on suspicion of cocaine possession. She said she was stopped before relapsing and credited the arrest with saving
her life and keeping her sober. A star of Nickelodeon’s “All That,” executives gave Bynes her own variety show when she was still a teenager. The child star avoided trouble until she was arrested for grazing a sheriff’s patrol car in 2012. Since then, she has been repeatedly arrested for driving without a license. The actress spent part of last year involuntarily committed after she lit a fire in the driveway of a home in her hometown of Thousand Oaks, Calif. Her parents revealed that Bynes had been suffering from mental illness in recent months and was experiencing extreme paranoia. An attorney for the actress said recently that she is studying for a career in fashion design after being released from a treatment facility. A teen heartthrob who starred in films such as “The Lost Boys” and “Lucas,” Haim endured a difficult and drug-addled transition to adulthood.

orothy Bramlage Public Library invites you to share your talent and creativity with readers throughout our community by entering the 2014 Summer Reading Bookmark Contest. This annual event allows artists (and wantto-be artists) of all ages and ability levels to have their bookmark creations professionally judged and printed for distribution around the community. Participants are invited to create a bookmark reflecting the 2014 Summer Reading themes according to their grade or age category. Students in kindergarten through high school will focus on the “Fizz, Boom, Read!” theme, while adults will work with “Literary Elements.” These themes encourage readers and librarians to investigate how science-related concepts are present in their life. How does one use these themes to create their bookmark? With the help of the library’s summer reading materials, there are several concepts and ideas that can be addressed based on programs the library will host this summer. The science-based themes can take many evolutions, including: • Asking “why?” • The science all around us • Ordinary wonders of everyday science • Experimentation • Fun with science • How science and art go hand-in-hand • Answering questions • The need to explore • Scientists • Creativity

New Harry Potter ride, shops for Universal Orlando
By The Associated Press
The new Harry Potter area opening at Universal Orlando Resort this summer, called Diagon Alley, will offer fans a new thrill ride themed on Gringotts bank from the Harry Potter book series, along with more than a half-dozen eateries and shops selling souvenirs like wands. But the location of Diagon Alley will also require tickets for both of Universal Orlando’s theme parks if guests want to see both the new and original Harry Potter attractions. Diagon Alley will open at the Universal Studios park. The original Wizarding World of Harry Potter area, which opened in 2010, is located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure park. The two areas will be connected by a train called Hogwarts Express, but if fans want to see both, a two-park ticket will be required. Currently, single-day admission for both parks is $136.32, including tax, for anyone ages 10 and older. “It’s a one-of-a-kind twopark experience that will completely immerse you in the story,” said Mark Woodbury, president of Universal Creative. Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure are both part of the Universal Orlando Resort theme park, but guests can choose to buy tickets for one without the other if they don’t want to visit both. Woodbury unveiled the new details of Diagon Alley in a media webcast Thursday. The new ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, described as Diagon Alley’s “marquee” attraction, will be an indoor ride through Gringotts bank vaults. A park spokesman said other kinds of experiences to be offered in Diagon Alley will be announced at a later date. Universal executives described the rich level of detail at Diagon Alley as “theatrical reality,” with shops selling souvenirs drawn from the Harry Potter books such as supplies for Quidditch, a game played on broomsticks.

In Utah, fight breaks out at Greek Orthodox church
By The Associated Press
SALT LAKE CITY — A fight erupted at a Greek Orthodox church near Salt Lake City on Sunday after longstanding financial tensions boiled over toward the end of a service, police say. Members of Prophet Elias Greek Orthodox Church in Holladay pushed and shoved each other during a Sunday service after a former leader announced he would still show up for work even though he was let go in December, some churchgoers said. Another leader cried out in opposition and began fighting with another member, according to those in favor of reinstating the Rev. Michael Kouremetis. The group, Protect Our Clergy, is raising money to bring him back onboard. Police were called to the church, but no one was injured or arrested. Tensions have mounted at the church since parish leaders floated plans in July to cut pay for three priests by 40 percent. The Greek Orthodox authority in Denver, which oversees the Holladay parish, ordered that the priests receive their full salaries. Prophet Elias members later voted to cut one post and pay the others in full but were evenly split on the issue. After the disturbance Sunday, parish officials in an email to members called the fight an assault and asked parishioners not to throw fists in church, the Salt Lake Tribune reported. Police are investigating whether the incident was an assault. Parishioners took the pushing and shoving into the narthex, a room adjacent to the larger service space. An opposing group that is raising money to bring back Kouremetis said the call to police Sunday was an overreaction. Council president Dimitrios Tsagaris told the newspaper that church leaders have asked police to attend the next service just in case, but that he doesn’t expect any more scuffles. “Everybody is going to come to church,” he said. “It’s not a big deal. There were just some hot tempers and that’s about it.” Stavros Papagermanos, a spokesman for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, said Friday that he had not heard about the
fight in Utah and that it’s usually up to regional authorities, like the one in Denver, to call the shots on hiring and firing leaders.

near Junction City. They have four children, David (Misty), Susan (Tobey Watt), Michael (Johanna) and Daniel (Kerry) and nine grand-
children, Anthony, Jackson, Mia, Claire, Matty, Hudson, Ava, Molly and Wallace. They are celebrating with a family dinner.
C.L. HOOVER OPERA HOUSE 2013 WINTER & SPRING EVENTS
JANUARY IS NATIONAL VOLUNTEER BLOOD DONOR MONTH.
The holidays have added to the already low blood reserves. There is a serious shortage of blood across the United States, so the American Red Cross needs all the blood donors it can get. When was the last time you gave? An individual can donate every 56 days. When you and I are in need of blood, we expect it to be there. When you or I are in an accident or have surgery or have become anemic due to an illness, we may need blood. Very few of us who are eligible to give blood actually do so. Giving blood is truly giving the gift of life.
GENERAL GUIDELINES ABOUT BLOOD DONATION You must be healthy and be at least 17 years old. You must weigh at least 110 pounds. “Healthy” means that you feel well and can perform normal activities. Just because you have a chronic condition such as diabetes or high blood pressure does not mean you are un-eligible to donate. “Healthy” in light of a chronic condition means that you are being treated and the condition is under control. Other aspects of each potential donor’s health history are discussed as part of the donation process before any blood is collected. Each donor receives a brief examination during which temperature, pulse, blood pressure and blood count (hemoglobin or hematocrit) are measured.

Ag lease deadline looming
gricultural leases for crop or pasture land are recognized by the state as legally binding contracts, even if the agreement is an oral agreement or what we commonly call an oral lease. Years ago, Kansas lawmakers also realized that oral leases could be vague and ambiguous so they adopted statutes designed to protect landlords and tenants who chose to enter into oral agricultural leases Perhaps the most important part of the Kansas ag lease law has to do with how a lease is terminated. An oral lease, by law, is only valid for one year at a time. However, it will automatically renew annually until such time as proper notice of termination is given. The terms may be tweaked from year to year, but the tenant

Field & Garden has the right to farm or pasture that land until such time as the landlord gives proper notification. The statutes are extremely specific about how notification of termination will be given. Notice of termination of an ag lease must be given in writing at least 30 days prior to March 1 with the termination date of the lease set as March 1 except on those acres planted to a fall seeded crop, most notably wheat. The lease on those acres terminates the day after the last day of harvest of those acres, or Aug. 1, whichever occurs first.
Any notice to terminate that does not meet all three of these requirements is not legal and the tenant has the right to continue farming the land or renting the pasture, as the statutes do treat crop land and pasture land the same. This year 30 days prior to March 1 is Jan. 30. I encourage landlords and tenants to be taking the time now to finalize what, if any, changes they want on their ag lease agreements. That way, if the landlord and tenant can’t come to agreement, the landlord has time to give proper notification. If no changes are agreed upon prior to Jan. 30, then the lease will continue under the same terms as last year. Naturally, if landlord and tenant agree on changes, these can be enacted at any time, but they
would not be enforceable if a disagreement arose between the two parties and it went to court. These stipulations only have to do with oral leases. If you have a written lease, you can have start and end dates any time you want them. If you have a written lease, but it doesn’t have start and end dates, then by statute it is enforceable under the same terms as oral leases, that being March 1 to March 1. If you rent pasture land under an oral lease, then the tenant has control of that pasture for all 12 months. If you want to only allow them access to the pasture for the grazing season, then you need to have a written lease that specifies when the livestock go in and when they must be out. One of the things that many landlords don’t realize is that a
land lease actually conveys total control of the rented acres to the tenant. That includes the right to plant what they want, use the resources as they see fit, even deciding who to let hunt on that land. The statutes give very specific conditions under which the landlord can enter the property. Most tenants don’t push this issue and they have very amenable agreements that don’t take advantage of the landlord. But there have been surprises, especially where it comes to firewood harvest and hunting rights. Be sure to stop by the Extension Office and ask for the Kansas Ag Lease Law bulletin for more information.

The dollar diet
e are still in January and it’s not too late to make a New Year’s Resolution. Weight loss or exercising are near the top of the list for common resolutions made by Americans, but I thought I would suggest moving past the standard food diet resolution to a “dollar diet” resolution instead. If you think about it, the approaches to succeeding with either of the two types of “diets” follow similar steps. 1) Determine what you want. That is, what are your goals? 2) Journal your current habits; 3) Identify where you need to make changes; 4) Chart your progress; and 5) Celebrate your successes! No one needs reminded of how hard it can be to build up savings, let alone pay the weekly and monthly bills — most of us live that challenge every day. However, just as it is important to take “baby steps” at the beginning of a weight loss diet, there are “baby steps” you can take at the beginning of your “dollar diet.” 1) Determine what you want to achieve. In other words, set your goals. What do you want for your family and/or yourself ? Making sure the basic needs of the family are being met is critical. Everyone has to pay bills, buy or make clothes, and maintain health. If you are not taking care of yourself, that will impact your ability to earn the wages needed to achieve financial goals. Most goals beyond meeting these basic needs are unique to each family. For my family, taking a vacation is a fairly high priority. We make sure we save a little each month to make sure we have the financial resources to meet this goal. Other goals might include having money to pay for summer camps, sporting activities, purchasing a different vehicle, or increasing the balance in savings accounts. 2) Journal your current habits. Keeping a detailed journal is important so you know where your money is being spent. The key here is to make sure you can account for every penny spent for at least a month. It is easy to lose sight of the many ways our money seems to slip out of our hands. Expenses from grabbing a bottle of water from the vending machine or running your car through the car wash can add up over the course of a month. For example, if you spend $1.50 each day getting a drink at the local drive-thru, you will have spent $45.00 by the end of the month Keeping track of everything you spend money on will help you identify some of the hidden challenges for your “dollar diet.” 3) Identify where you need to make changes. Using the
drive-thru example above, you may decide that you will carry a bottle of water in your car and limit your drivethru stops to twice a week. That would save you $33. For our family vacation, we vary the length and location of our trip based on the amount of money we have available for this goal. You could compare this to the concept of portion control used in weight-loss diets. You may determine that your family needs to eat more meals prepared at home instead of carry-out meals from a restaurant. You are controlling the portion of your income being spent on this convenience. 4) Chart your progress. When you are on a weightloss program, you typically keep a record of how much weight and/or body fat you have lost in a given period of time. Your success is more visible over a longer period of time, but it is important to keep track more frequently. This motivates you to continue your hard work. The same holds true for being on a dollar diet. Even if you get paid biweekly, or monthly, keep track of the progress you are making each week to help motivate your forward progress. Charting your progress will also help you be proactive in making adjustments to your spending plan as they are needed. Setbacks are common in weight loss diets and they are common in dollar diets. Keep your eye on the goal and you can get things back on track. 5) Celebrate your success. Achieving your goal is one way you can celebrate your success, but there are other ways you can celebrate. If you have exceeded your savings goal, you could use part of the extra money you have saved to have a family fun day (miniature golf, bowling, hiking at the lake, or other fun activities that your family rarely takes the time for). If you get your car paid off early, you could use some of the money designated for the original final payment to get the car detailed and waxed. The keys to being successful in anything you set out to achieve is to make a plan, follow the plan, and adjust as needed. Sometimes the hardest part of the process is simply getting started. The first month of a new year is a great time to set new goals and create habits that will improve your everyday life. Put yourself on a “dollar diet” and let your money work for you in 2014. If you need more information on planning and using a household budget, call me at the Geary County Extension office (785) 238-4161. I would be happy to help you work through the process and provide you with some resource material that would make it easier to get started. Until next time, keep living resourcefully.
