The love of teaching
Logan Parks spends time reading with her teacher, Jennifer Malcolm.

line of happy and excited first graders followed Jennifer Malcolm through the halls of Lincoln Elementary School before entering their room.
As children ate snacks and engaged in activities inside the classroom, a few of them gathered around Malcolm as she conducted a math activity using blocks. Next, she assisted students with reading. “I really like teaching first grade,” Malcolm said. “I’ve contemplated other grade levels, but there’s something about the 6- or 7-year-old children and how they grow throughout the year.” Her work in education has resulted in an elementary nomination for Kansas Teacher of the Year. For Malcolm, it’s an honor and humbling experience. “In this district, there are so many quality educators,” Malcolm said. “Any one of us in the buildings would be an excellent candidate for this award.” A committee of past nominees selected Malcolm as the elementary candidate to represent Unified School District 475. She will represent the district in September when the 2015 Kansas Teacher of the Year will be announced. The program is sponsored by the Kansas State Department of Education and recognizes teachers in elementary and secondary schools throughout the state. Malcolm is now in her 12th year of teaching first graders. Prior to her time at Lincoln Elementary,

Court remodeling process takes next step

Junction City officials have the green light to move forward with architectural and engineering services for a municipal court facilities project. The City Commission Thursday approved entering into contract negotiations with Bruce McMillan AIA Architects to perform those services for the renovation of the city-owned building at 701 N. Jefferson St. The firm will complete its services at a cost not to exceed $100,430 — or 10.5 percent of the estimated $1.1 million total project cost. However, the commission discussed how staff recommendations to lean toward renovating the North Jefferson Street facility versus remodeling the old court building M ICK on Seventh Street M C C ALLISTER could have been more open. “I know a lot of work goes on behind the scenes, but a lot of folks don’t understand that a lot of work goes on behind the scenes,” Commissioner Mick McCallister said. The commission in December approved the option to renovate the North Jefferson Street building. Please see Court, 10A

she spent 10 years at Westwood Elementary School. Malcolm feels she’s making a difference in the lives of students. “It’s really cool to help them grow,” Malcolm said about helping to mold students. “They start the year off with a blank slate and at the end of the year, they’re so much more fluent at reading, math and with their conversation abilities.” One issue she’s passionate about is helping children in poverty overcome educational obstacles.

Waters True Value to start expansion project

After years of customers walking into Waters True Value in Junction City, the store is giving back to the community by expanding to offer more services. Company president Jim Waters confirmed Thursday the store is undergoing an expansion that will add 37 percent more space to the building, located at 129 E. Sixth St.

“We’d been going through our stores and kind of decided that to offer everything we’d like to (in Junction City), we needed to expand,” Waters said. The addition will include areas for more indoor rental items, better lumber displays and more merchandise. The entire store will go through a remodeling phase, during which it will receive new fixtures, shelving and updated lighting. Waters said the makeover will give the store “a little bit of a fresher look.”

Dollar General considering relocation
Dollar General may move one of its Junction City stores into a new, larger building, although no decisions have been made. Store public relations representative Jaclyn Dees said corporate officials are in the “due diligence” phase of determining whether to proceed with a relocation. Dees said the phase is scheduled to last until July. She added it could be a while before a final decision is made.
Not too many businesses have been in Junction City as long as Waters True Value. The relationship began in 1905 when G.E. Waters purchased Gretners Hardware. In 1917, Waters Hardware moved to the corner of Eighth and Washington. Almost 60 years later, in 1974, the store underwent a major addition and remodeling. The store moved to its current location in 1991 and expanded to include a full lumber yard in 2002. Waters,

a Junction City native now living in Salina, remembers working for his father at the previous Junction City location. When Waters had his eyes set on a new toy, his father would put him to work at the store, putting together bicycles and barbecue grills for 25 cents a piece. “I’d say, ‘Dad, I really want a new toy,’” Waters recalled. “He’d say, ‘No problem. We’ve got stuff down at the store that needs doing. If you want it, go work for it.’” The Waters True Value

brand now has expanded to seven stores in Kansas. Waters said he’s proud to be part of the Junction City community and to see the company’s store in town continue to grow. “I still consider us very much a local company,” he said. “Our roots are still in Junction City.” The expansion and remodeling likely will be finished in early fall. “That’s pretty fluid at this point,” Waters said. A grand opening will be held when the project is completed.

Toys offer children new way to express problems

Inside a room that will make any child wide-eyed, Junction City native Stephanie Holloway systematically arranged toys on shelves stocked with action heroes, princesses and cartoon characters. The miniature figures are accompanied with replicas of beer cans and drug paraphernalia. To the average adult, those items may seem inappropriate, but in the world of Play Therapy, it’s required to help children through a rough period. “This is a really great place and a lot of healing comes out of here,” Holloway said. As a Certified Story Play Practitioner and Facilitator, Holloway is working to bring awareness to the therapy method during National Play Therapy Week by the Association for Play Therapy. Through play therapy, emotionally-disturbed children are encouraged to act out

“Having the children use these miniatures takes them one step away from the problem.”

fantasies and express feelings through play, aided by a therapist’s interpretations. “We believe that children do not have the language to describe their problems,” Holloway said. “We believe that the toys are their method of communication.” Using a sand tray and other methods, the children tell a story through their play. Besides human-like figurines, some children may use a large, dangerous animal to represent an unruly or abusive parent. “Having the children use these miniatures takes them one step away from the Please see Toys, 10A

Health and wellness apps for the iPhone
Living Resourcefully nutrition, they recommend MyFitnessPal. This app will track your food intake and physical activity. It has over three million foods in its extensive database. You can add additional foods not currently in the system and save them for future use. The app has been rated highly among 9,000 readers surveyed by Consumer Reports. Ease of use was a contributing factor to its popularity. Keeping a daily food log is a research-proven advantage in losing weight. Another app, Cooking Matters, can assist you in finding healthy, easy and affordable recipes. Within the app, you can identify your favorite recipes and connect with other health-conscious users via social network links. Using an app like this one can help plan meals in advance so both your time and money are well-spent at the grocery store. Planning your meals for a week at a time will limit the number of times you need to make a stop for groceries. Seasonal & Simple is an app created by University of Missouri Extension service that provides a guide to finding, selecting, storing, and preparing fresh fruits and vegetables found in Missouri. With our growing season being similar to Missouri’s, this application would be of benefit to Kansans as well. When you buy fruits and vegetables in season, you can reduce food costs while promoting a healthier diet through fresh produce. If you are trying to watch blood glucose levels, Glucose Buddy may be an app for you. You can enter glucose numbers, carbohydrate consumption, insulin dosages/ medications, hemoglobin A1C, and activities on this app. Just as with their previously-recommended apps, the Missouri Extension specialists found Glucose Buddy easy to use and found it especially good for those who do not have advanced blood glucose meters. Keeping track of blood glucose levels is essential for managing diabetes and this tool is helpful for recording daily glucose levels. Are you trying a new workout program for 2014? You might want to look at Simple Workout Log. The application is just what the name indicates — a simple way to track your workouts. It is both easy to use and intuitive allowing you to enter strength training exercises, cardiovascular activity, and your weight. What is your level of physical activity? The weekly amount of activity recommended for most adults is at least two hours and 30 minutes (150 minutes) of moderate activity or one hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes) of vigorous aerobic physical activity weekly. Moderate activity means you are able to talk with minimal effort (but would not be able to sing) during the activity. During vigorous activity, you would not be able to speak more than a few words without pausing for a breath. The last app recommended is Conscious. This app is designed to make you aware of your daily activities and to help you become more mindful. Too many times, our days seem to require us to be put on “auto-pilot” and before you know it, the day becomes a blur. This app helps users become more fully present in their daily living. If you want to explore other nutrition and health apps, here are some tips on what to look for to make sure you’re making good selections. 1) Identify the source of the application. Find out if the app has a website and, if so, read the “about” section to learn more about the organization or person who created the app. Make sure they have credentials and experience to support the information and tools on the app. 2) Make sure the app meets your needs. Are the tools included in the application broad enough for the purpose you are using it? 3) Is the app user-friendly and intuitive? You are more likely to use tools that have easy access and designed for the way you think or operate. These tools are supposed to make your life easier, healthier, and less stressful. 4) Look at the reviews. What do nutrition, health, and wellness professionals say about the app? The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics hosts a website that provides reviews of top-rated apps. You can view the site at: http://www.eatright.org/ appreviews Make sure you are an informed consumer when it comes to selecting nutrition, health and wellness apps. Good health and wellness practices are key to having a long and fulfilling life. For more information about nutrition and wellness, feel free to contact me at Geary County K-State Research and Extension: (785) 238-4161. Until next time, keep living resourcefully.

ast month, I presented a health and wellness workshop at a staff inservice for a local organization. As we talked about creating a wellness plan to improve overall health, wellness, and dietary habits, one of the participants asked about using mobile applications. Apple recently shared their iTunes store has a total of more than 350,000 applications available for download (for purchase or free). This doesn’t account for the additional applications available through Android, Windows, and Blackberry. The dramatic increase in application availability is also reflected in the area of health and wellness apps. The iTunes app store alone has nearly 20,000 health care and wellness apps. Sorting through the massive amount of options can be daunting. The challenge comes in finding apps based on sound health and wellness practices. University of Missouri Extension recently published a list of apps reviewed by their Nutrition and Health Education Extension Specialists. Although there are many apps that could be added to the list, these trained and experienced professionals shared six as their recommended apps to get you started. In the area of food and

City lifts traffic snow emergency
Junction City has lifted the traffic snow emergency issued earlier this week, but is still advising motorists to refrain from parking on city streets, if possible, to allow Junction City Public Works crews to continue clearing roads that have yet to be cleared. Public Works crews indicated Friday that all streets in the city, expect for a few dead-end streets and culde-sacs, were plowed.

looking into armed robbery

MANHATTAN — Riley County police are investigating an armed robbery Wednesday night at Ray’s Apple Market on Manhattan’s east side. Officers responded to the grocery store, located at 222 N. Sixth St., at about 9:05 p.m. for a report of an armed robbery and aggravated assault, a Thursday press release from the Riley County Police Department stated. Police were called shortly after the incident occurred. Upon arrival, officers were told two subjects, one brandishing a handgun, had entered the grocery store and obtained cash. After a brief period inside the store, the suspects were able to flee the area, police stated. Police didn’t release how much cash was taken from the store. Nobody was injured during the incident. No further information was released by press time. Police first confirmed what had happened on Twitter at 10 p.m. Wednesday. Police stated several officers still were on scene and others were in the surrounding area. The RCPD asks anyone with information about this crime to contact the department at (785) 537-2112. Anonymous tips can be submitted to the Manhattan-Riley County Crime Stoppers by calling (785) 539-7777 or by installing the “TipSubmit Mobile” app on Android or iPhone devices.

For as much snow as Junction City received earlier this week, snow removal crews did a good job, officials said Thursday during a City Commission meeting. The city received 10.5 inches Tuesday night through Wednesday — a single snow event record. But Junction City Public Works Department crews were ready. Commissioner Mike Ryan told Municipal Services Director Greg McCaffery he appreciated the effort put in by Public Works employees. “I was surprised that some of the side streets were even hit (Wednesday) night,” Ryan said. “For as much snow as we had, you guys are doing a good job.” McCaffery explained the city’s first priorities were major thoroughfares and streets connecting those high-traffic roads. He said it takes time to reach residential streets. “People need to realize we have 150 miles of streets,” McCaffery said. “About 35 miles of those are arterials and collectors. The rest are residentials.” As of late Friday morning, all Junction City streets had been plowed, except for a few dead-end roads and cul-de-sacs, McCaffery said. The focus since, he said, has shifted to hitting those remaining areas and improving traction at more heavily-traveled intersections. The continuing snow-clearing efforts haven’t come without complaints from residents, City Commissioners said Thursday.

JCPD to continue nighttime seat belt enforcement through February
Officers with the Junction City Police Department will conduct nighttime seat belt enforcement at the intersection of Sixth and Washington streets through the month of February. Additional officers will be on the streets throughout the month, according to JCPD Capt. Dan Breci. Field sobriety tests will also be administered to those drivers who are suspected of driving while intoxicated. In January, 44 drivers or passengers were cited for not wearing their seatbelt, no proof of insurance, no driver’s license or expired vehicle registration, according to the JCPD.

“There are some concerns and I’ve passed those on,” Mayor Cecil Aska said. “Hopefully there’ll be some kind of dialogue.” Citizens’ complaints relayed by commissioners and city staff included some streets not having been plowed as of Thursday. Other complaints were aimed at how streets had been plowed. “One of the irritating things, as I can understand, is when you shovel your driveway, then the city comes by and pushes it right back in,” Aska said. “That’s one of the hazards. And if we had a bigger crew, which would mean also raising your taxes, we would have the ability then to clean those spots back out.” Overall, Aska was pleased with how snow removal crews responded. “I think the city did a good job, considering the equipment that we have and the amount of snow — that was quite a bit of snow,” he said. Junction City has seven trucks for snow removal, six of which are in operation. McCaffery said crews were working hard to get the streets cleared. “We’ve got anywhere from five to six trucks that are running basically 24 hours around the clock,” he said. “We’ve got individuals that come in, working 12 hours on, 12 hours off.” City Manager Gerald Smith said he was pleased with how the Public Works Department used its resources in response to the storm. “What we do here is based on the resources we have available,” Smith said. “I thought we did a pretty good job to keep the main arterials open.” However, there’s room for improve-

Brown: Public cooperated during snow storm
Junction City residents responded well to an early snow emergency declaration and stayed safe during this week’s winter weather, police chief Tim Brown said Thursday. Brown told Junction City Commissioners a snow emergency declaration was issued midnight Monday, earlier than any declaration in a number of years. The department brought in additional officers Tuesday to advise people still parked on snow routes they needed to move their cars off the streets. “Overall, I was surprised we only ended up towing 18 cars over that two-day period,” Brown said. Police also issued a number of citations for cars parked on snow emergency routes. Officers responded to “very few” accidents over the course of the storm, Brown said.
ment, he said. “I understand and I sympathize with residents who live on cul-desacs and essentially are at the bottom of the rung when it comes to getting those areas,” Smith said. “As the city begins to have additional resources, we might be able to ratchet up the ability to be able to get to those.” On top of the amount of resources available, the city’s snow removal program is young, having only been in operation for two years, Smith reminded commissioners. Previously, Veolia Water had handled those and other public works operations for the city. “Our guys are learning this program and I think they’re doing a pretty good job,” Smith said.

The Junction City Fire Department is making progress in updating its aging fleet. City Commissioners Thursday approved the purchase of a new pumper apparatus from Rosenbauer LLC for $480,816. To speed up the delivery process, Junction City Fire Chief Kevin Royse told commissioners the department agreed to purchase a demo truck from Rosenbauer. “We could possibly have this as early as May this year,” Royse said. As part of the deal between the manufacturer and the city, Rosenbauer will build the truck, take to a national conference to show, then deliver it to the fire department. “This speeds things up by at least a minimum of six months,” Royse said, adding the deal also saved the department money on the purchase price. The purchase will be

funded by a lease-purchase program and with funds in the city’s fire equipment reserve. The pumper apparatus is the second of three purchases the city plans to make from Rosenbauer. Last year, the commission approved purchasing a new aerial apparatus from Rosenbauer through a federal grant. “The third and final step will occur later this summer when we will spec out an engine with Rosenbauer again,” Royse said. Royse explained purchasing all three engines from the same manufacturer has two main benefits. “Every apparatus will be the same in its pumping capabilities,” he said.

“Each apparatus will be the same in its driver configuration. Our maintenance costs and our training (needs), we’re looking to decrease tremendously.”

Facing a situation similar to the fire department’s, Junction City Public Works will be purchasing a used sanitation truck to replace an older truck that would require $30,000 in maintenance. Municipal Services Director Greg McCaffery told commissioners the need to buy a truck was known, but a year earlier than planned. “We’re in a sort of unusual situation here

Public Works to purchase used sanitation truck

because of the unit going down sooner than we thought,” he said. T he commission approved the department’s request to purchase the used truck without a formal bid process at a cost not to exceed $104,050. Money for the purchase is available in the city’s sanitation fund. McCaffery said the bid process waiver was requested because used sanitation trucks are hard to find. “These units move,” he said. “The used units that have any life in them, they move relatively quickly.” Public Works has been

renting a unit at $5,000 per month. The city likely will lease-purchase a new unit later this year to start the process of replacing its fleet over the next few years. New sanitation trucks cost about $170,000, McCaffery said. Assistant Manager Cheryl Beatty said sanitation costs may rise 50 cents per household next year to help fund the purchases. Public Works plans to operate the used unit for a while before it would be replaced. “Our intent is to run that unit four if not five years,” McCaffery said.

Plissner, veteran CBS political sage, dies
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Marty Plissner, the longtime political director of CBS News, died Thursday of lung cancer. He was 87. Plissner is credited with coining the phrase “too close to call” a half-century ago, heard often ever since during tight vote counts. He was known for his extensive political knowledge and his range of political contacts, establishing himself by one appraisal as the gold standard for several generations of political journalists. He was a pioneer of exit polls and was known to say that members of Congress who had pushed to limit them would nonetheless contact him on primary days seeking information on what they revealed. Born in Brooklyn in 1926, Plissner attended Yale and served in the Navy during World War II. After graduation and stints at ABC and NBC, he joined CBS News in 1964. He participated in covering the 1964 presidential race as well as the next eight. He retired in 1997 as senior political director. Plissner’s coinage of “too close to call” was noted in 1996 by New York Times language columnist William Safire.


Reports: NSA gets under 30 percent of phone data
WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency collects less than 30 percent of calling data from Americans despite the agency’s massive daily efforts to sweep up the bulk of U.S. phone records, two U.S. newspapers reported Friday. Citing anonymous officials and sources, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal both said the NSA’s phone data collection has had a steep drop-off since 2006. According to the newspapers, the government has been unable to keep pace since then with a national surge in cellphone usage and dwindling landline use by American consumers. The Post said the NSA takes in less than 30 percent of all call data; the Journal said it is about or less than 20 percent. In either case, the figures are far below the amount of phone data collected in 2006, when the government extracted nearly all of U.S. calling records, both newspapers reported. NSA officials intend to press for court authorization to broaden their coverage of cellphone providers to return the government to near-total coverage of Americans’ calling data, the newspapers said. The lowered estimates for the sweep of government surveillance would be significant because federal judges, members of government task forces and media accounts based on documents provided by NSA leaker Edward Snowden have all described the NSA’s bulk metadata collection as sweeping in millions of records from American phone users. Lowered estimates could be cited by officials to alleviate privacy and civil liberties fears, but they could also raise questions about the government’s rationale for the program — that the NSA’s use of all Americans’ phone records are critical in preventing potential terrorist plots. National security officials have said that the collection of bulk data is essential to national security because it provides a massive pool of callin records and other metadata that NSA analysts can quickly search to pinpoint calling patterns showing evidence of potential terror threats. Congressional critics cies. And the court ruling now scales back the NSA’s use of a “three-hop” system in its searches — allowing the agency to scan the records of those in phone contact with a terror suspect and a second wave of people in touch with the first group, but no longer allowing searches of a third wave of phone contacts. Chief Justice John Roberts on Friday named two new judges to the secret court. Roberts said that U.S. District Judges James E. Boasberg and Richard C. Tallman joined the court on Jan. 27. Boasberg was appointed by Obama, Tallman by President Bill Clinton. Their appointment will likely do little to dampen criticism that the majority of FISA judges picked by Roberts are Republicans. job market. They ramp up production when they think the economy is going to strengthen. — The job market entered 2014 in better shape than previously believed. The Labor Department announced revisions Friday that added 369,000 jobs to U.S. payrolls last year. That means employers added 2.3 million jobs last year, or 194,000 a month, the most since 2005. the video, in which the top U.S. diplomat for Europe, Victoria Nuland, disparages the European Union. Loskutov, an aide to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that his decision to repost the video had no connection to his work for the Russian government. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday that Loskutov’s post pointed to Moscow’s possible involvement. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the video was “a new low in Russian tradecraft,” indirectly suggesting that Russia was responsible for bugging the call. Loskutov posted a link on Twitter which he said proved that another anonymous user had posted the video on Wednesday, the day before he did. “I think you’re better off asking the titushki (about the origins of the video),” he said, using the word that Ukrainian protesters have used to describe violent, government-paid thugs who are meant to delegitimize the protest movement. The AP verified that the post cited by Loskutov was made on Wednesday, but the sender could not be identified. Rogozin, Loskutov’s boss, was unavailable for comment but posted an indirect but vociferous response to American accusations online on Friday. “While the westerners weave little intrigues and get into scandals, Russia is helping the regions of Ukraine restore lost connections with our industries,” he wrote on the blogging platform Twitlonger on Friday morning ahead of a meeting with Ukrainian industrialists. “Maybe then there will be fewer unemployed and embittered people to organize riots in their own cities with foreign money,” Rogozin said. In the video, voices resembling those of Nuland and the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine discuss international efforts to resolve Ukraine’s ongoing political crisis.


White House giving Boehner room on immigration
WASHINGTON — The White House is hoping Republican resistance to overhauling immigration is temporary and tactical. That’s why President Barack Obama continues resisting pressure from allies to take matters into his own hands and ease his administration’s deportation record. For Obama, it’s a highwire act. If he acts alone to slow deportations, he probably dooms any chance of comprehensive legislation. If he shows too much patience, the opportunity to fix immigration laws as he wants could slip away. White House officials say they believe House Speaker John Boehner ultimately wants immigration legislation. But they are giving Boehner space to tamp down the conservative outcry over immigration principles that he brought forward last week. And Obama doesn’t want to appear as if he is telling Boehner how to lead the Republican House.

have pressed efforts to end the bulk phone data sweeps, and two panels of experts have urged President Barack Obama to end the program because they see little counter-terrorism advantages and say the program intrudes on personal liberties. Obama has committed to ending government storage of phone records but still wants the NSA to have full access to the data. National security officials did not immediately comment on the new reports. Civil liberties groups said they were not reassured by the reports, saying the government still intends to gather phone records from all American users. “To accept their legal reasoning is to accept that they will eventually collect everything, even if they’re not doing so already,” said Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union. Verizon and AT&T said last December that they would provide figures this year on data requested by the government in law enforcement and intelligence investigations. But the Journal reported last year that several major cellphone entities including Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile were not part of the NSA’s bulk metadata collection. It is not clear why cellphone providers would not be covered by the NSA legal authority. Intelligence officials are already moving to alter the structure of the phone surveillance program to conform to changes Obama ordered last month. On Friday, Office of the Director of National Intelligence, or DNI, posted a government website appeal to private companies to develop ways for the government to continue its phone record searches without storing a massive inventory of phone data. The posting, on FedBizOpps.gov, said the DNI is “investigating whether existing commercially available capabilities can provide for a new approach to the government’s telephony metadata collection program.” The Associated Press reported last month that the DNI is already funding five research teams across the country in an effort to develop an encrypted search technique that could be used by the NSA to securely scan phone databanks held elsewhere. In a related development, the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in Washington on Thursday authorized two major changes in the phone collection program that Obama committed to in January. The court agreed to require judicial approval for each internal NSA search of telephone data for terrorist connections and it will narrow the numbers of American phone users whose records can be scanned during each search, the DNI reported. In the first instance, the NSA now must provide judges with “reasonable, articulable suspicion” for each search of phone data for terrorist connections. That hurdle can be lifted during national emergen-

Why a weak jobs report isn’t as bad as it looks
WASHINGTON — The January jobs figures were a downer: Employers added just 113,000 jobs last month, far fewer than economists had expected. Job cuts by retailers and government agencies lowered overall hiring. But the Labor Department report contained enough good news to sustain hopes that 2014 may be a solid year for the U.S. economy. Consider: — Unemployment didn’t just fall to a five-year low of 6.6 percent; it fell for the right reasons. Nearly 500,000 Americans poured into the job market last month, and 616,000 more people said they had jobs. Previous drops in the unemployment rate had occurred partly because many Americans gave up looking for work and therefore were no longer counted as unemployed. — Factories, mines and construction firms hired at a healthy pace. These so-called goodsproducing industries added 76,000 jobs in January, the most since January 2006. Hiring by goods producers is typically seen as a harbinger of an improved

Another View Athletes should be the real stars of the Winter Olympics


The following editorial appeared in the Kansas City Star on Thursday, Feb. 6

f you’re weary of all the buildup to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia — the barechested president Vladimir Putin, athletes’ oddlooking uniforms, computer hacking, potential terrorist attacks, blatant discrimination against gay people and, now breaking, journalists unhappy with their Third World hotel rooms — here’s much more positive news. The first competition in the Games started Thursday in Sochi, and the Opening Ceremony will be Friday. After all the recent controversies, this is, we can hope, when much of the narrative tilts positively toward what the athletes are accomplishing. Thanks to live television, plus t ap e - d e l aye d broadcasts in time, We have some Olympic prime Americans news on our website. could witness some amazing Check it out. perfor mances until the Olympics end on Feb. 23. Don’t worry if the names of the U.S. athletes aren’t familiar; they seldom are for many winter sports. But the events still ought to attract large audiences. The figure skating competition will be elegant, the downhill skiing fast and furious, the bobsledding medalists decided by the hundredths of a second, the snowboarding ridiculously perilous and the cross country skiing an endurance test for the ages. More than likely, we’ll still hear about Russian corruption, cost overruns at the Olympic venues and various protests during the next few weeks. These stories also deserve attention. But as so often happens at the Olympics — and often out of nowhere — athletes will put their own stamp on the Games with some brilliant performances on the ice or snow. Thousands of talented women and men will be competing fiercely to win gold, silver and bronze medals in Sochi, many after training a lifetime to get there. This is their time to shine.


It makes no sense to criminalize people for getting stoned
Commentary est damage in black America, decimating whole neighborhoods as young black men are locked up for non-violent crimes, then released with records that will restrict their employment opportunities for the rest of their lives. At a time when policymakers are struggling to close a yawning income gap — to find ways to support equal opportunity for all — it makes no sense to criminalize a group of people for getting stoned. Not only does a drug record stigmatize them for life, but a prison sentence also forces them into close quarters with hardened criminals, making it more likely that they will graduate to violent crimes themselves. And here’s the thing that’s especially galling: Whites don’t pay nearly the same price. (If they did, marijuana would have been legalized decades ago.) Although studies show that whites and blacks smoke pot at about the same rate, blacks are 3.7 times more likely to be arrested, according to a 2013 report by the American Civil Liberties Union. “The war on marijuana has disproportionately been a war on people of color,” Ezekiel Edwards, director of the ACLU Criminal Law Reform Project, said last year. Even with all the evidence of the harm from the War on Drugs, though, many middle-aged and older Americans are still reluctant to support legalization of marijuana. That’s less true of the young. According to Pew, 65 percent of millennials — born since 1980 and now between 18 and 32 — favor legalization, up from just 36 percent in 2008. Those less enthusiastic about legalizing pot point to risks, including a likely increase in rates of cannabis addiction. In addition, they note, legalization of marijuana would probably lead to increased calls for the decriminalization of much more harmful drugs, such as heroin. There is no doubt that most narcotics are more dangerous than pot and may need to be treated differently. The recent death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman is a stark reminder of that. But we can distinguish between cannabis and heroin just as we distinguish between Tylenol and Oxycontin. Unfortunately, the federal government stubbornly clings to an outdated view, insisting that its law enforcement authorities will continue to view marijuana sales and possession as a crime. That’s dumb, and President Obama ought to know better. He has long admitted his youthful pot use, and he recently acknowledged in a New Yorker interview that it is no more dangerous than alcohol. That doesn’t mean he wants his two daughters to smoke pot, any more than I want mine to. But I certainly don’t think any of them should go to jail if they do.

y the time my 5-year-old daughter leaves for college, it’s quite likely that marijuana use will be broadly decriminalized. Alaska has become the most recent state to move toward legalization, placing an initiative on the ballot for an August vote. If it passes, Alaska would join Washington and Colorado, which have already made recreational use legal for adults. The trend will probably continue, since 52 percent of Americans support legalization, according to the Pew Research Center. That’s good news — and not because I want my daughter to indulge. Quite the opposite. Having grown up in the years of cannabis prohibition, I know all about the dangers of the weed. Even though I don’t accept the exaggerations of such propaganda as “Reefer Madness,” a 1930s-era film that portrayed pot-smoking as the road to destruction, I know that marijuana overuse is dangerous. That’s especially true for adolescents, whose brains are stunted by frequent pot-smoking, research shows. Overindulgence in alcohol is dangerous, too. Yet the nation learned through wretched experience that Prohibition was worse. It bred a gaggle of violent criminals who trailed death and devastation in their wake. Their crimes were generated by the law itself: Making alcohol illegal did not stop its use; it merely fostered a huge and profitable black market. The futile War on Drugs has done the same thing, promoting violent crime throughout the Americas and fueling the growth in prison populations. According to the FBI, about half of the annual drug arrests in the United States are for marijuana. The so-called war has done its great-

Solution to income inequality opportunity, not entitlement


Special to The Daily Union

here has been much discussion about income inequality recently. President Obama seems to think we can make significant progress in eliminating poverty by raising the minimum wage, as his State of the Union address highlighted. Many hope that through a simple declaration, the poor can be elevated to a higher social status. Such people fail to realize that pay is associated with value — otherwise, we could just pay everybody $1 million a year and let everybody be rich. In a capitalistic society, those individuals who produce the wherewithal to obtain income tend to be paid quite handsomely, while individuals who don’t generate significant income are paid accordingly. As in any situation that involves human beings, there will be some abuses, but generally speaking, this kind of system works by incentivizing individuals to do the things necessary to enhance their value in the marketplace. Many in the current administration and their sycophants in the news media are trying to persuade Americans that there is significant improvement in the general economy. But record numbers of people are enrolling in the food-stamp program and receiving various government subsidies. Common sense dictates that if the economy were improving, there would be an accompanying decline in the number of people depending on government supplements.

As a child, I was eyewitness to people who preferred a sedentary, nonproductive life as long as they could collect public assistance. Others, including my mother, from the exact same environment, worked incessantly to try to improve their own lives and those of their children. My mother worked as a domestic in the homes of wealthy people who were generous to her because she was dependable, honest and hardworking. They also learned about my brother and me, because my mother would share our stellar report cards with them once we had conquered our academic doldrums. As a result, these successful people would send us significant monetary incentives to keep up the good work. One of them even loaned me his luxury convertible for a special occasion. I was never resentful of the wealthy; I was inspired by their achievements and wanted to achieve at the highest possible levels so I could realize my potential and enjoy a pleasant lifestyle. Luxury and a comfortable lifestyle are no longer goals of mine; they are byproducts of making myself valuable to society. I recognized after many difficulties in early childhood that the person who has the most to do with what happens to me in life is me. Other people and the environment could not thwart me unless I permitted it. Only my attitude and acceptance of the victim mentality could get in the way. As an adult, the best thing I can do for young people is to give them hope and opportunity. We all need to realize that by showing them kindness and sharing with them, we can have a significant, positive impact on their lives.

We must, however, go beyond rhetoric and put concrete plans into action to allow people to ascend from the lower socioeconomic levels to the apex of our society based on their hard work and creativity. We should be thinking about creative ways to fund schools in order to even out the distribution of resources between wealthy and impoverished neighborhoods. Corporations and businesses need to concentrate on mutually beneficial apprenticeships and internships for potential workers in their cities. Courses in basic finance and work ethics should be offered in places where such knowledge would not be redundant. These are constructive things that can be done by “we the people.” This does not mean the government doesn’t have an important role to play in promoting economic health. The following Jeffersonian quotation is an excellent definition of good government: “A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.” In other words, protect people and get out of the way. Let’s use innovation to create opportunity, instead of using government to suppress it. Once we have a vibrant economy, entitlement reform will be a much easier discussion.

Kansas House panel delays vote on gun measure
TOPEKA — Kansas legislators want to ensure that carrying firearms while drunk or under the influence of drugs is illegal, so a committee has delayed a planned vote on a gunrights bill partly to give members more time to hash out the language of such a ban. The House Federal and State Committee had planned to vote Friday on the measure, which strips cities and counties of any power to regulate guns. But members instead spent more than an hour reviewing changes suggested by the bill’s leading sponsor, Rep. Jim Howell, a Derby Republican, and postponed the vote until Wednesday. Howell’s changes included a new, broad declaration that it’s a misdemeanor to carry firearms under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs. Federal law bans illegal drug users from owning guns, and a Kansas law authorizing people with state permits to carry concealed weapons forbids the permit-holders to do so under the influence. However, it’s not clear that Kansas law has a broader prohibition. “If someone is out hunting, for example, and they’re drunk, that would be a violation,” Howell told the committee, describing how the law would change. “I believe someone who’s under the influence of drugs or alcohol shouldn’t be operating a firearm. This is a very good principle.” But committee members quickly became tangled up in the details. For example, Rep. Erin Davis, an Olathe Republican, said the language should be expanded to cover impairment by legal prescriptions that, when taken as directed, can make people “a little bit loopy.” And Patricia Stoneking, president of the Kansas State Rifle Association, sought assurances that the language wouldn’t hinder self-defense rights if, for example, someone who’s average of 288 days from the date of hearing. However, statistics from the Legislative Research Department suggested that civil cases heard in the past year took an average of 402.6 days — more than 13 months — to be completed. McAnany defended the figures, saying the Supreme Court typically receives more complex cases that require more consideration. “I don’t fault them from taking more time,” he said, adding that what is decided often has great public interest and every word could “come back and bite them.” He also questioned whether the law would infringe on the court’s constitutional authority to oversee court administration. Senate Vice President Jeff King says six states have similar laws on time limits and can withhold pay from judges who are tardy in their rulings. King said those states all have similar provisions in their constitutions that give the judicial branch authority to administer court operations. “I think today’s testimony makes it clear, the Kansas Court of Appeals is doing its work in a timely manner,” said King, an Independence Republican and attorney. “We need to do everything we can to encourage swift justice from the Kansas Supreme Court.” Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce said the measure would give the court guidance on cases without rushing any issue to quick judgment. “Every case is different and we’ve given them discretion in the bill,” said Bruce, a Hutchinson Republican and attorney.


Fire at Sterling College gym cancels game
STERLING — A fire possibly sparked by a blowtorch used to melt ice forced the evacuation of up to 400 people from a central Kansas college gym just minutes before a men’s basketball game was due to start, a school spokesman said. Sterling’s Gleason Center filled with smoke and flames licked up the walls of the gym forcing the postponement of the scheduled game between Sterling and Tabor colleges Thursday evening, the Hutchinson News reported. No one was hurt. “When we were trying to thaw some pipes earlier today, we had some water leaking,” said Sterling sports information director Hans Nickel. “We think we caught the building on fire, but we’re going to wait and see after the investigation because we really aren’t 100 percent sure what happened. We were using a blowtorch to try to help thaw the ice. It probably caught something on the inside on fire and it kind of festered.” The game initially was delayed for 30 minutes and all spectators were asked to leave while the maintenance staff looked for the source of the smoke. The Sterling Fire Department was called after the flames appeared on the west wall. Firefighters removed tin, plywood and particle board inside the gym to extinguish the smoldering fire, Sterling Fire Chief Richard Jones said.

District courts would have 120 days to rule on motions and nonjury trials; the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals would have 180 days after oral arguments to issue rulings. McAnany said the 14-member Court of Appeals had its own internal system of the “60-day list” of those cases that were awaiting a ruling 60 days from their court hearing. Last year, the Court of Appeals disposed of 1,221 cases in an average of 51 days. “It seems to be fairly productive because of the numbers that you see,” he said. By comparison, the Kansas Supreme Court disposed of 133 cases in an

Mean grandma is in failing health

The Daily Union. Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014

Dennis the Menace


Dear Annie: I am a livein caregiver for my grandmother, who is in failing health. She has five children (including my father) who do absolutely nothing for her because they say Grandma is a mean, nasty person, which she is. Grandma feeds off of negativity and gossip. Nothing is ever good enough, and she blames everyone else for her own failings. I go out of my way to do things to make Grandma’s life easier, and it is either never good enough or she just doesn’t care. It has brought me to tears. I have threatened to move out numerous times, but then Grandma walks on eggshells until the dust settles, and everything goes back to the way it was. I am at the end of my rope. But I also have a conscience and am afraid that if I move out, her children will rip her out of her home and slam her into an assisted living center, and that would be the end because no one else would step up to take care of her. — Frustrated Charles Dear Charles: You are a caring grandson, but please don’t let Grandma blackmail you into a situation that is no longer tenable. Does Grandma have money to pay a caregiver? Would your aunts and uncles be willing to help foot the bill in order to have Grandma cared for without their direct involvement? Look into the cost of hiring someone to live in the home, which Grandma may prefer. But also check out senior housing, including assisted living options. Many of them are excellent places that offer activities and friendships. You can visit often. Grandma undoubtedly will complain about the change, but she will get used to it and may even come to like it. You deserve to have a life, too. Dear Annie: Could you please inform your female readers that we are tired of seeing their behinds because they refuse to buck a fashion trend that has been forced on them? I am talking about hideous low-cut jeans. Unless you are model thin, it’s hard to look good in these jeans. And if something hangs over, they’re not for you, period. Do women have no sense anymore? It is disgusting to see someone’s behind hanging out of their pants. Young women have been misled to think that jeans

Annie’s mailbox
that sit at the natural waist and don’t show your assets are “mom jeans,” which is supposed to make them sound undesirable. But listen up: It’s a marketing ploy to sell more jeans. Women need to wake up and take a good, hard look at themselves. — Sick of Seeing It in Indy Dear Sick: The desperate need to look young and hip afflicts a great many women, regardless of size and age. (Men, too.) The reason marketing works is because people believe the hype. If you are convinced you look terrific with your rear end hanging out, you will continue to wear jeans that achieve that. But we agree they are not flattering. Of course, we still can’t figure out why young men think it looks cool to have to hold up their pants with one hand because otherwise they would fall to their ankles. To each his own. Dear Annie: Two years ago, we took our 10-year-old grandson, a voracious reader, to visit the National Archives in Washington, D.C. As we proudly looked intently at the Declaration of Independence and the Emancipation Proclamation, my grandson looked up at me and asked, “What does it say?” Why would the people of this country think it is worth millions of dollars to protect documents that our children cannot read? Surely our schools can find a way to teach children to read historic documents that were carefully written in beautiful cursive writing. And then we, the grandparents, can go back to writing birthday notes to our grandchildren. — Grandpa in South Dakota

ARIES (March 21—April 19). If you could take care of all of your own needs, you wouldn’t have any reason to be angry at all. But you also wouldn’t have a reason to connect with others, and that’s why you’ll be happy for what you lack. TAURUS (April 20—May 20). Of course the bull can be stubborn, but this isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, you’ll be celebrated for that particular brand of stubbornness called “tenacity.” Your refusal to give up will lead to a victory. GEMINI (May 21—June 21). All things being equal, why not surround yourself with people who believe in you and like being witness to your work instead of with people who are critical and jealous? CANCER (June 22—July 22). Everyone has triggers to anger, but mature people resist acting on them automatically. Each time you take a moment, breathe and choose your reaction wisely, you retrain your brain and raise your emotional intelligence. LEO (July 23—Aug. 22). It seems like you’re making constant adjustments in order to stay on the right path, but don’t think your situation is any worse than anyone else’s. Good lives are filled with correction. VIRGO (Aug. 23—Sept. 22). To have positive illusions of who a loved one is and will become is to be in love. Today you’ll take every opportunity you see to support your loved one’s attempts to grow and develop. LIBRA (Sept. 23—Oct. 23). You won’t be sure whether you’ve landed in a good place or a bad place today, but if you are lucky enough to be there with one of your favorite people, it’s heavenly either way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24—Nov. 21). What one person considers to be a tense situation might be status quo for another person. Today will be about testing and expanding the limits for you and your team. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22—Dec. 21). You need and enjoy relationships, but at the end of the day, you are your own person: autonomous. You don’t have to make a big deal about this now. They’ll find out sooner or later that you make your own decisions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22—Jan. 19). The time you spend with family is precious even when it’s not all that fun, smooth, comfortable or even civil. There’s something necessary in family connections, and that’s where you’ll focus tonight. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20—Feb. 18). Today’s decision—making boils down to your feelings about each choice. You can logically assess the pros and cons all you want, but in the end, you’ll still make the choice that feels the best. PISCES (Feb. 19—March 20). You’re not nitpicking or critical. You’re just calling it as you see it. You have to notice when an action is taking you in the wrong direction in order to course correct.

Kansans invited to take action against hunger
MANHATTAN — Leaders and activists in the fight against hunger will convene in downtown Wichita in February to generate strategies and action plans for ways that college campuses can combat hunger. The 2014 Hunger Dialogue is Feb. 25-26 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. The event brings together individuals from across Kansas to build awareness, advocacy and action about hunger by sharing of research, best practices and model programs. Participants will learn strategies to combat hunger both locally and globally. Keynote speakers are Robert Egger, founder and president of L.A. Kitchen, and Cindy Jones-Nyland, the executive vice president of marketing and resource management at Heifer Project International. L.A. Kitchen recovers fresh food like fruits and vegetables from hospitality businesses and farms and uses them to fuel a culinary arts job training program for men and women coming out of foster care, or older men and women returning from incarceration. Heifer Project International links communities and helps brings sustainable agriculture and commerce to areas with a long history of poverty. The animals provide communities with both food and reliable income, as agricultural products such as milk, eggs and honey can be traded or sold at market.

plane to Sochi foiled
Airlines flight from Kharkiv, Ukraine, with 110 passengers aboard signaled there was a hijacking attempt, according to NTV television. It escorted the plane safely to its original destination at Sabiha Gokcen airport in Istanbul. Officials credited the pilot and crew for convincing the 45-year-old-man, who claimed he had a bomb, that they were following his wishes. “Through a very successful implementation by our pilot and crew, the plane was landed in Istanbul instead of Sochi,” Istanbul governor Huseyin Avni Mutlu told reporters at the airport. “He thought it was going to Sochi but after a while he realized that (the plane) was in Istanbul.” He said the suspected hijacker was arrested after

By The Associated Press
ANKARA, Turkey — A Ukrainian man tried to hijack a Turkey-bound flight to Sochi, Russia, as the Winter Olympics were kicking off Friday, but the pilot tricked him and landed in Istanbul instead, where he was stealthily detained after a four-hour stand-off on a plane full of passengers, an official said. The hijacking drama came as the Winter Olympics opened in the Russian resort city, with thousands of athletes from around the world pouring into the tightly secured stadium amid warnings the games could be a terrorism target. A Turkish F-16 fighter was scrambled as soon as the pilot on the Pegasus

a stand-off during which a negotiator convinced him to first allow women and children to be evacuated and later agreed to let all other passengers off the plane as well. “Our security units sneaked through various entrances during the evacuation of the passengers and with a quick and effective intervention the hijacker was subdued,” Mutlu said. No bomb was found, he said. The man’s motive was unclear, but Mutlu said he had “requests concerning his own country” and wanted to relay a “message concerning sporting activities in Sochi.” Mutlu said there was no immediate indication that the man was a member of any terror organization and Mutlu did not give his name.

Students prepare for the first session of the Junction City High School Forensics Tournament Friday at Junction City High School. Students from districts across the region participated in a variety of structured debates, including Congress and Lincoln-Douglass debates. The Junction City High School Forensics Tournament continues today at JCHS.

“It really does affect how they feel throughout the day and the amount of knowledge they accept and internalize,” Malcolm said. She briefly discussed students as products of their environments. “If their environment is not stimulating or providing the background knowledge that they need, how can we help catch them up in school so they can perform with their peers in school,” she said. If she would pursue her doctorate degree, Malcolm said her dissertation would focus on children and poverty. “Universities aren’t covering that very well with their classes,” Malcolm said. “Teachers need to be experienced to meet the needs of those students because it’s different. It’s a problem in the United States.” She’s also involved with other training programs and grants in conjunction with Kansas State University. The Lincoln Elementary educator said she would love to produce children’s books in the future. “I love to write children’s books here with my class,”

she said. “They’re a great audience.” Her husband, Zac, is a vocal music director and coaches basketball for Clay Center High School. Together they have two children. Some of her hobbies include sewing, cooking and dance choreography. “Right now, my main hobby is being a mom, which is a lot of fun,” she said with a laugh and a smile. Malcolm comes from a family of educators and grew up in Manhattan. As a youth, she was involved with 4-H in Riley County and other activities. After graduating from high school, Malcolm received her bachelor’s degree in education from Emporia State and her master’s in curriculum from K-State. In college, she contemplated a career in dance or cosmetology. “I decided that my heart really was in teaching,” she said. Principal Kathi Teeter said Malcolm is a great leader. “She works very hard to make sure that our first graders are achieving at the highest levels,” Teeter said. “She a very upbeat and positive person in our building.”

Court services had been held in that building since August, when mold and water damage problems were discovered in the Seventh Street facility. Questions had been raised as to whether the city had explored all of its options, including removing the mold and repairing the roof of the Seventh Street building. Another option would have been to construct a new facility. “Building brand new would have been quite costly,” Assistant City Manager Cheryl Beatty said to commissioners. As for comparing the benefits of remodeling the Jefferson Street location or fixing up the Seventh Street building, Beatty said staff explored “all efficiencies.” Preliminary estimates suggest remodeling the Jefferson Street building is the cheapest option. Beatty added the building would be designed as a “multi-use” facility and noted its useful location across the street from the city offices. “It is an advantage to the citizens as well as the city

problem,” she said. To promote the week, she wrote a guest blog for a St. Louis-based therapist. Next week, she’s also doing inservice training at Lincoln Elementary School. At the end of the month, she’s scheduled to conduct a session at Sheridan Elementary. On a weekly basis, close to 30 children visit her office for sessions. Holloway meets with parents to have conversations about the needs and struggles of their children. The majority of her referrals come from Unified School District 475 and other agencies on post. “The collaborations with the school district and Fort Riley are essential in helping children in our community,” Holloway said. “We

staff,” she said. McCallister said he would rather have seen more transparency throughout the decision-making process, but agreed it was the best decision. “This will be a good use of a building that maybe has no use, other than selling it for pennies to a dollar — and I don’t think that’s a good idea,” he said. Commissioner Jim Sands said it would be beneficial for the city to see the project progress. He said nothing but the parking lot was worth saving at the Seventh Street location, which was in a state of disrepair. “I feel bad that we treated our judge and our citizens who come to municipal court that way,” Sands said.

deal with almost all kinds of social and emotional issues.” Those issues may include problems at school, disorders, death, depression, divorce and military deployments. Recently, she’s noticed an increase in anxiety disorders. “In some ways, I think it’s related to the Internet,” Holloway said. “Kids are losing that valuable connection of communicating with people, without some kind of social media or electronic device.” There’s a lot of play therapists who allow computers or tablets for children, but it’s not allowed in her office. “I feel that kids get enough of that outside the office and I see that in the waiting room,” she said. “There’s enough toys that were specifically chosen to help kids.” Holloway said it’s interesting to see children who say, “I don’t know what to do.”

“They really don’t know how to play,” Holloway said. “They want an iPad or they want to bring their DS in here. It helps them avoid the issue at hand by losing themselves in their electronic devices.” Play therapy is often used in the mental health profession. Currently, there are only 51 registered play therapists in Kansas. For about five years, Holloway worked as a school social worker, before beginning her own practice, Play Therapy for Children. “It’s definitely a passion,” Holloway said. “There’s never a day where I wake up and don’t want to come to work.” But there are days and times when her work can become heartbreaking. “I always want to come back and do more,” she said, “It never feels like work to me. I think that I have the best job in the world.”

But there are always plays and situations where we’re one basket away from being able to pop it open on them.” Junction City had the ball with the game tied 46-46 and a little over a minute remaining.

JCMS vs. Fort Riley
Junction City Middle School’s 7th grade boys basketball hosted Fort Riley Thursday. The JCMS ‘A’ team won 41-19 to improve to 8-0 on the season. Javonetez Brime, A.J. Divkerson, Baylor Wilkinson and Kody Westerhaus led the team with 11, 10, eight and seven points, respectively. James Hall scored 19 points to lead the ‘B’ team to a 34-15 victory. The 7th grade teams travel to Anthony Middle School in Manhattan next Tuesday.

TOPEKA — There wouldn’t be overtime. Either a miracle shot would lift Junction City past Hayden or the last second heave would fall by the wayside, dashing the JC 46 Blue Jays’ Hayden 48 hopes. Down 48-46 with 3.9 seconds left, Junction City senior Danny Thornton inbounded the ball to a player who has experienced being both the hero and the goat this season, senior Jonathan Wilds. He darted down the court, trying desperately to close as much

to the rim. The Hayden defense collapsed down on him but the junior was able to kick the ball out to an open Wilds for a shot. But it didn’t fall. “People need to remember that this isn’t played nor is it coached by robots,” Battle said. “And kids and coaches make mistakes and it’s one of those situations, it’s a lot of pressure.” Hayden converted on a shot down low to set up Junction City’s last second attempt. The Blue Jays offense struggled at the outset before Wilds caught fire. He scored seven of his 10 points in the first quarter as the teams left the first period level, 11-11. Please see Boys, 3B

Rained out

Rains’ 19 points can’t spark the Blue Jays in 78-44 loss to Hayden
Parks said. “It wasn’t for lack of preparation.” The teams finished the quarter playing level basketball, but the hole enabled Hayden to lead with a comfortable 10-point lead, 18-8. Bell, sophomore Grace Craft and senior Bre Waterman each scored four points in the game. Freshman Darja Russell scored six points in the contest. Rains made a string of shots in the third, with Russell and sophomore A’Kia Fain, who is fighting through an injury, finding the net as Junction City tried to stay within reach of Hayden. But Junction City could never dig itself out of the initial hole. “One of the things I talked to them at half is that we need to really stop digging these holes for ourselves,” Parks said. “A lot of these are people doing things that are not very smart on the floor and we just need to get a little more competitive.” Junction City falls to 3-10 on the season.

Kansas Speedway extends Toyota partnership
Kansas Speedway has announced an extension of a multi-year partnership with Toyota that will keep the automaker’s line of vehicles as its official pace car. Toyota became the pace car of the two Sprint Cup races at Kansas Speedway in 2012. The deal was announced on the same day Toyota revealed an 11-year agreement for various naming rights at revamped Daytona International Speedway.

He was a career .297 hitter who finished with 215 homers and 909 RBIs, even though he dealt with persistent back trouble that caused him to miss long stretches of time. It wasn’t immediately clear what Sweeney’s duties will be, though general manager Dayton Moore said in a statement that he will work closely with the baseball operations department. Sweeney said Friday that he hopes to help Kansas City return to the playoffs, something he was unable to accomplish as a player.

TOPEKA — With her team in a hole, Junction City sophomore Kealee Rains didn’t change her attitude. Undeterred by early misses, she kept taking her open looks, heating up in the second and third quarter. Rains torched Hayden for 19 points. Ultimately, her heroics weren’t enough and Junction City lost 78-44. “To be quite frank, she’s one that isn’t afraid to take shots,” Junction City coach Nate Parks said. “That’s one of the things we’ve been trying to work on, getting the girls confidence to shoot in games and that’s what we work on in practice and it’s not transferring into the games as much as it should but we need to keep plugging away at it and getting people confident.” At the start of the game, Hayden blitzed the Blue Jays with a vicious full-court press. It forced Junction City to turn the ball over on its first five possessions of the game, giving the Wildcats a 9-0 lead before sophomore Jamia Bell put Junction City on the board. “The injuries that we have on the team, we have some people doing some things that they’re not as experienced at,”

Kansas State looks to end Texas’s hot streak

MANHATTAN — Kansas State basketball coach Bruce Weber isn’t quite sure how to define team chemistry. When he was holding a coaching clinic in Turkey a few years ago, the two interpreters of the event approached him after he used the word while speaking. They asked Weber if he meant to give players drugs. He fervently displaced that notion. But there is no word in the Turkish language for team chemistry. Weber thinks that story is a great example of how difficult it is to describe despite it being such an important aspect of the game. “It’s something that’s there but you don’t know it until it’s not there and when it’s not there, a team can be dysfunctional,” he said at media availability Thursday. No one on Kansas State (15-7, 5-4 in the Big 12 conference) is denying that the opponent, No. 15 Texas (18-4, 7-2) is playing with great chemistry right now. Please see K-State, 2B

SOCHI, Russia — A Russia in search of global vindication kicked off the Sochi Olympics looking more like a Russia that likes to party, with a pulse-raising opening ceremony about fun and sports instead of terrorism, gay rights and coddling despots.

As always, Greece — the birthplace of Olympic competition — came first in the parade of nations. Five new teams, all from warm weather climates, joined the Winter Olympians for the first time. Togo’s flagbearer looked dumbstruck with wonder, but those veterans from the Cayman Islands had the style to arrive in shorts! The smallest teams often earned the biggest cheers from the crowd of 40,000, with an enthusiastic three-person Venezuelan team winning roars of approval as flagbearer and alpine skier Antonio Pardo danced and jumped along to the electronic music. Only neighboring Ukraine, scene of a tense and ongoing standoff between a pro-Russian president and Western-leaning protesters, could compete with those cheers. That is, until the Russians arrived. Walking in last to a thundering bass line that struggled to overcome the ovations from the hometown crowd, the Russians reveled in all the attention. Their feeling could perhaps best be summed up by Russian singers Tatu, whose hit “Not Gonna Get Us” accompanied them to their seats. Russians place huge significance in the Olympics, carefully watching the medal count — their dismal 15-medal performance in Vancouver four years ago is on the minds of many. These games are particularly important, as many Russians are still insecure about their place in the world after the end of the Cold War and the years since that have seen dominance of the United States and China. International politics were never far beneath the surface. One member of the VIP crowd carrying the Olympic flag was Anastasia Popova, a young televison reporter with the state-owned Rossiya TV channel, best known

more to worry about than geopolitics as they plunge into the biggest challenges of their lives on the mountain slopes of the Caucasus and in the wet-paint-fresh arenas on the shores of the Black Sea. But watch out for those Russians on their home turf. A raucous group of Russian athletes had a message for their nearly 3,000 rivals in Sochi, marching through Fisht Stadium singing that they’re “not gonna get us!” Superlatives abounded and the mood soared as Tchaikovsky met pseudo-lesbian pop duo Tatu and their hit, “Not Gonna Get Us.” Russian TV presenter Yana Churikova shouted: “Welcome to the center of the universe!” Yet no amount of cheering could drown out the real world. Fears of terrorism, which have dogged these games since the Putin won them amid controversy seven years ago, were stoked during the ceremony itself. A passenger aboard a flight bound for Istanbul said there was a bomb on board and tried to divert the plane to Sochi. Authorities said the plane landed safely in Turkey, and the suspected hijacker — who did not have a bomb — was subdued. The show opened with an embarrassing hiccup, as one of five snowflakes failed to unfurl as planned into the Olympic rings, forcing organizers to jettison a fireworks display and disrupting one of the most symbolic moments in an opening ceremony. That allowed for an old Soviet tradition of whitewashing problems to resurface, as state-run broadcaster Rossiya 1 substituted a shot during from a rehearsal with the rings unfolding successfully into their live broadcast. Also missing from the show:

Putin’s repression of dissent, and inconsistent security measures at the Olympics, which will take place just a few hundred miles (kilometers) away from the sites of a long-running insurgency and routine militant violence. And the poorly paid migrant workers who helped build up the Sochi site from scratch, the disregard for local residents, the environmental abuse during construction, the pressure on activists, and the huge amounts of Sochi construction money that disappeared to corruption. Some world leaders purposely stayed away, but U.N. SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon and dozens of others were in Sochi for the ceremony. He didn’t mention the very real anger over a Russian law banning gay “propaganda” aimed at minors that is being used to discriminate against gay people. But IOC President Thomas Bach won cheers for addressing it Friday, telling the crowd it’s possible to hold Olympics “with tolerance and without any form of discrimination for whatever reason.” For all the criticism, there was no shortage of pride at the ceremony in what Russia has achieved with these games, after building up an Olympic Park out of swampland. The head of the Sochi organizing committee, Dmitry Chernyshenko, captured the mood of many Russians present when he said, “We’re now at the heart of that dream that became reality.” “The games in Sochi are our chance to show the whole world the best of what Russia is proud of,” he said. “Our hospitality, our achievements, our Russia!” The ceremony presented the Putin’s version of today’s Russia: a country with a rich and complex history emerging confidently from a rocky two decades and now capable of putting on a major international sports event. Putin himself was front and center, declaring the games open from his box high above the stadium floor. Earlier, he looked down as the real stars of the games — those athletes, dressed in winter wear of so many national colors to ward off the evening chill and a light dusting of man-made snow — walked onto a satellite image of the earth projected on the floor, the map shifting so the athletes appeared to emerge from their own country.

for her reporting on Syria’s civil war. Putin and Russian state media have stood strongly behind Syrian President Bashar Assad, and Popova’s coverage laid the blame for the war squarely on Syrian rebels. But back to that Russian pride. As Churikova rallied the crowd to scream “louder than ever,” she told the fans in their cool blue seats their keepsakes from the night would last 1,000 years. When explaining the show would be hosted in English, French and Russian, she joked that it didn’t matter, because in Sochi, everyone “speaks every language in the world.” Viewers of the Olympic ceremony romped through the wonders of Russian cultural and scientific achievements — from Malevich’s avant-garde paintings to Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” from Mendeleev’s periodic table of elements to the string of Soviet “firsts” in space. Capping it all off, Russian hockey great Vladislav Tretiak and three-time gold medalist Irina Rodnina joined hands to light the Olympic cauldron. He’s often called the greatest goaltender of all time by those who saw him play, she won 10 world pairs figure skating titles in a row. That was how it ended. At the top, the show — and the games — easily avoided talking about prickly issues even when the women in Tatu took the stage. The duo, who put on a lesbian act that is largely seen as an attention-getting gimmick, merely held hands during their performance on this night, stopping short of the groping and kissing of their past performances. This time? Their lead-in act was the Red Army Choir MVD singing Daft Punk’s Grammy-winning “Get Lucky.”

The Longhorns, winners of seven straight, are playing their best basketball as they get ready to come to Bramlage Coliseum for a game at 12:30 p.m. today. The last time these two teams met, on Jan. 21 in Austin, the Wildcats were the ranked team on the hot streak, having won 12 of 13 games. Since the meeting, Texas has skyrocketed up the conference standings and national rankings. “They’re a totally different team,” senior Shane Southwell said. “Against us, it was the start of them really getting confident, even though they were doing well before us, but it seemed like after that game they really became confident.”

For most of the previous meeting, junior forward Thomas Gipson had his way with Texas, scoring a career-high 24 points. “He got (Texas forward Cameron) Ridley moving and then he went into the post,” Weber said. “So he just didn’t sit there. I told him if it’s going to be a bear fight, even if he’s big, that dude’s bigger and you can’t just get tangled up in the middle, he’s got to keep him moving. “And then (Ridley) got tangled up in the post and our guys got it to (Gipson) at the right time.” But the final play of the game spoiled Gipson’s day. With the score tied 64-64 and less than two seconds remaining on the clock, he was charged with covering Longhorn forward Jonathan Holmes. Holmes moved to the baseline to set a screen before the ball was in play, then popped outside the arc

where he was wide open to receive the inbounds pass. Gipson was a step late and Holmes drained the 3-point shot for a win. “To be honest I kind of fell asleep and it was pretty much my fault,” Gipson said of the play. “Coach asked me what happened and I just had to tell him I fell asleep and I take the blame for that loss.” After Texas, K-State has a quick turnaround before No. 8 Kansas comes to town. Southwell emphasized how every game is important as the Wildcats fight for a place in the NCAA tournament. “Before the year would you have said this was a hard stretch?” he said. “Every game is tough. It doesn’t matter. I don’t know who we play Monday, I just know we have a game Saturday against a team we lost to. We’re focused for

that.” NOTES: Three members of the Kansas State basketball family, current coach Bruce Weber, assistant coach Chris Lowrey, and the Wildcats’ all-time winningest Jack Hartman, were named to the Southern Illinois University AllCentury team. Hartman coached Southern Illinois from 1963-70, compiling a record of 142-64 (.689) and the 1967 NIT championship. Weber posted a 103-54 (.656) record in five seasons, including two Missouri Valley Championships and two NCAA tournament appearances. Lowrey, who also attended the school, coached the Salukis from 2005-12, guiding them to a 145-116 (.556) record, two MVC titles, one MVC tournament title and three NCAA tournament appearances including 2007 when the team advanced to the Sweet 16.

‘Moose’ aims for bounce-back season


Continued from Page 1B
Trailing in the third quarter 29-26, Lueker went on a run of his own. He was fouled heading to the rim. After sinking his first shot, he missed his second from the charity stripe. Not deterred, Lueker chased after his rebound and put it in to tie the game 29-29. On Hayden’s next trip down, he stole the ball and raced down the court for the layup to put Junction City in the lead. Lueker led Junction City with 14 points in the game. “We’re getting there,” Battle said. “We’re doing a lot of things and we’ve just got to stick with it because you just want to give yourself a chance and eventually we’re going to be on the right side of one of these twopoint losses.” Later in the third quarter, Thornton hit a 3-point shot to put Junction City back in the lead 39-36. He finished with seven points. Senior Semaj Johnson and junior Jordan Lawrence scored six points each in the effort. In the fourth, Junction City held a 43-41 lead. But a Hayden player was fouled while making a trey. He sank the freebie to give his team a two-point cushion, 45-43. “(It) totally flipped the game,” Battle said. “We wanted to cover the guy because he’s such a good shooter in the corner and got a little over aggressive and he hit a shot.” Junction City falls to 4-9 on the season. The Blue Jays travel to Emporia tonight to make up a game that was snowed out Tuesday. “You’ve just got to keep fighting,” Battle said. “And we’re one of those teams where, I’m sure we’d like to roll it out on some team by 20 but we’re a grind it out kind of team, bucket by bucket, it’s just who we are as an identity. I’m banking on us to win the one when it counts.”

Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mike Moustakas walked through the empty ballroom with such a confident swagger that it was hard to believe the Royals third baseman was coming off one of the toughest seasons of his career. Or that he was carrying the weight of a franchise on his shoulders. Once considered a cornerstone of Kansas City’s future, Moustakas struggled so mightily last season that he was nearly sent to the minors. His playing time decreased and he became a liability at the plate, even as the Royals contended in September for the first time in a decade. Now, with most of their key pieces back and a few significant acquisitions, the Royals are eager to take the next step by making the postseason for the first time since 1985. And if they have any hope of dethroning Detroit in the AL Central, or even challenging for a wild-card berth, Moustakas knows that he’s going to have to be more productive than a year ago. “That’s why I worked so hard this offseason,” he said. First, Moustakas spent a couple months playing winter ball in Venezuela. Then, he returned to the U.S. and resumed working with Royals hitting coach Pedro Grifol in Arizona. Along the way, he also managed to drop about 10 pounds, becoming

faster, stronger and more flexible. Oh, and he also managed to get married. Suffice to say, it wasn’t a very restful offseason. But Moustakas is confident all the work will pay off with a big bounce-back year, which is why he walked through a ballroom during the club’s annual FanFest with a pronounced bounce to his step. “I worked on all sorts of things, my swing, pitch selection, different situations,” Moustakas said. “All sorts of things we could work on out there, as opposed to going into spring training to start from ground zero. I was able to get a jump on everything.” That’s exactly what the Royals were hoping he would do. “Look, we’ve got to count on all of our young guys getting better,” general manager Dayton Moore said. “We have to count on Moose, and we expect Moose to have a much better year.” Moustakas made the decision to play winter ball late last season, when the former firstround pick was lugging along a .233 average. He knew that there were things he could do to restore the club’s confidence in him — and his faith in himself — and that the best way to do both was to keep playing competitive games for as long as possible. He wound up joining the Cardenales de Lara, which happened to be managed by Grifol, allowing Moustakas a chance to work closely with his hitting coach even while in Venezuela.

In-h appli ome an repai ce r

The fields were a little rough. The bounces were often wacky. The crowds were passionate, if a bit small. The food, well, Moustakas jokes that it’s one of the reasons he lost all that weight. But the progress he made was unmistakable. “I took about 300 swings every day before the game,” he said. “We tried to adjust a few things, but nothing too crazy, still the same swing, still try to drive the ball and do some damage. I was able to put solid contact on most every swing I took.” That was a welcomed improvement over last season, when he got into a nasty habit of trying to pull everything to right field. The result was usually weakly hit balls scooped up by the second baseman that reached first long before Moustakas did. “The first three or four games in Venezuela, I didn’t do so well,” Moustakas said. “I didn’t trust the process. I didn’t trust what we were doing, and I went back to my old ways. But then I was like, ‘You know what? I’m here. Let’s just do it.’ And it almost clicked.” First baseman Eric Hosmer, one of his closest friends, said the changes have been obvious. “I saw him about a month ago in California and he’s in great shape,” Hosmer said. “He’s really done everything he could this offseason to put him in a position to succeed.” The Royals are counting on that to put them in a position to succeed, too.

The life of Junction City slave Jack Turner
Museum Musings said he was going home by way of Bald Knob. “We rode all night and he kept whoopin’ like an owl. Finally a man came up in answer to his signal, and I was put up behind him on his horse. Next morning we got to Springfield, Mo. His wife asked me why the Fleetwoods wanted to get rid of me, but I told her I didn’t know. “Turner was then taken to St. Louis where he stayed about a day and a night. From there he and his captor went by steamboat to Memphis, Tenn. From Memphis he was taken to Okolona, Chickasaw County, Miss. “At Okolona I landed in Mr. Whittaker’s hands. “We went to the Mississippi bottoms. We put up a crop and in the fall we went up to the hills again. There we went to Mobile Ala. and Mrs. Hodges (Mr. Whittaker’s daughter) put me in a hotel to cook. I stayed there about six months and then she put me in a livery stable for about six months.” After returning to Okolona Turner was the coachman and house boy. He drove the barouche for the next four years. “The whole crowd of us was taken to the salt works in Alabama for about a year. The war was pressin’ so they made the salt workers build breastworks. After about three weeks we went back to the salt works. Then the whole bunch (about 20 of us) returned to Okolona. We put in two crops. Then Mrs. Hodge’s father died, and her husband took charge of us. “In the spring of 1866 he came out on the porch one day and told us we were free. “After the war was over Mrs. Hodges and I were in Memphis for two years, then she went back to Okolona. Like a gump, I went over to Arkansas. She told me not to, but I went anyway. I went over with a man named Williamson to kill hogs. “I came back but went again to help in the apple orchard. I was plowing around the trees in the orchard when I struck one twice with a single-tree of the plow. “He warned me to be more careful, but I told him I couldn’t help doing it unless someone held the single-tree for me. It happened again, and slamming the plow down, I hurried to the ferryboat landing just as the boat was leaving. Williamson rode up and motioned for the boat to come back, but it kept going. “In Memphis again, Turner worked for a lumber company until he wrote to Mrs. Hodges now left a widow with her two children, Sallie and John. Mrs. Hodges immediately sent him $5 and his fare to Okolona. “She’d sent for me everywhere I went, Turner said. She’d send for me to come home even if I was just a runaway.” In 1868, Colonel Streeter of Junction City married the young widow. She brought her family and servants with her when she moved to Junction City. Jack came with them. In 1871 Jack married his wife Martha, who had come to Kansas with her parents as part of the “Exodusters” immigration following the Civil War. He states “I raised 10 children to manhood and womanhood. They’re all married now and I was married 58 years and eight months.” Martha Turner’s obituary shows that she passed in January of 1929. Turner worked as a freight driver for Streeter for many years. He would transport government supplies across the plains. He made his last trip in 1870. He also worked as the foreman of the Streeter farm between Junction City and Fort Riley. Turner remembers many interesting tales from his life in early Junction City. “Straw rides were popular at that time and groups of people would ride in straw wagons to country dances. Turner would often ride a mule and drive the other three mules hitched to the wagon. One day someone else who was driving the barouche went under a black jack limb growing over the road, and the top of the cab was knocked off.” Turner remembers, “That man never drove again. “In the times before paved highways, cord way rails were used as bridges over the swamps between Junction City and Fort Riley. Jack would drive over these rails day or night, and Mrs. Streeter always said she was never nervous when he was driving.” Turner recounts about his life as a slave but states that “he had never lived in the heart of the plantation section, so never had to endure the hardships of some slaves. “Mrs. Hodges treated us nice. Her servants were treated just as nice as other people. They always had Sunday clothes for church and he father never allowed anyone to look bad at slaves.” “Mrs. Streeter often told Turner that she could depend upon him to do what was right. He drove the family to Fort Riley to attend the wedding of Colonel Forsythe’s daughter. Then the footman got drunk. Jack stayed sober, because he knew he had to drive home.” Turner remembers a riding horse owned by Mr. Streeter. “That horse could step over the steps of the stile just like a person.” Turner recounts that he, “drove the buggy and carriage teams from the time I needed a box to stand on to harness the horses. He also acted as a butler in the Streeter house.” Turner looks upon his life in Junction City with the Streeter family as “the happiest day of his life, and often recalls to chance listeners the hospitality of this bit of old south transplanted to the western plains.” Jack Turner passed away Sept. 12, 1937 at the age of 93.

ebruary is Black History month and as I was looking through our files for ideas, I ran across an interesting article that Marilyn Heldstab, former director of the Geary County Historical Society, published many years ago. It is the story of a former slave and Junction City pioneer, Jack Turner. It is such an interesting account that I thought we should tell it again. Mr. Turner’s story first appeared in the Junction City Union on Feb. 27, 1934. Mr. Jack Turner tells the story of his life and how he came to Junction City. “I was born in the Ozark Mountain is 1844. This area was slave territory and I was to be under Fleetwood’s care until I was 21, when I was to be freed and receive an inheritance.” “I was kidnapped when I was 12 years old, I remember exactly what happened. I had covered corn all day long, and in the evening they told me if I would cross the creek I could ride home.” “It was nearly a mile from home, so I waded across and a Mr. Adams took me up behind him on his horse. He started out in the wrong direction, but when I told him he was going the wrong way, he

JC Arts Council provides 2014 update
Special to the Daily Union
Art is the spark of surprise that gives joy to the day. It is a particular shade of blue where you only expected gray, or a golden note coming out of a trumpet when you are walking down the steps to the subway. Art is someone trying to bring beauty under control.” Forty years ago, some enterprising Junction Citians tried to do just that: get control of the arts in our area and present them to their town for the enjoyment of all. The Junction City Arts Council was a brave, new enterprise and its mission was bringing art and artists into public view. After lots of groundwork, the articles of incorporation were signed by Charles Neale, Jolana Montgomery-Matney and Lee Howe on Feb. 14, 1974. Forty years later, we find our town bursting with art and artists. If you walked the Dec. 13, 2013 Art Walk, you saw many fine local artists, including Freal Frazier and his amazing bowls and containers made from a variety of Kansas-grown woods. Ninety-year-old Flora Milani Alsop came here from Italy after World War II and painted both her native and her adoptive landscapes. Craig Greene presented his rich-hued multimedia pieces, and Ortrud Hauptli showed her gorgeous colorful batik works. Several other artists participated with paintings, photography, jewelry designs, and wooden figures. The children’s choir sang, the high school orchestra played, and this year we even had a dollmaker exhibiting. Our job, as the Arts Council, is to provide events for the public and the artists to intersect. Today’s Arts Council Board is a hard-working group, continuing the work of the “founding parents” because 40 years of care and concern shall not be wasted. We receive no public funds – let me repeat, no public funds — from taxes, only the support that we can find in our community and from our loyal membership. We have no employees, just happy volunteers who host art classes for preschool kids, Kindergarten through fifth grade kids, and adults. We host birthday parties, tipsy easel art parties, and artist shows. We sponsor Brown Bag concerts for grade school musicians in the spring and Art Walks in the fall. This year our plans include a car show, a talent show, and an art explosion, and several murder mystery dinners. We are far from finished. As the new president of the group, I am searching out ways to link art experiences with the people of our town. If art is the spark of surprise, then each of our city roundabouts holds a surprise for the motorist. The South Washington roundabout has a fine obelisk donated by the Waters family, and depicting the sacrifice of soldiers. At the east end of Chestnut Street we see a fullsize Native American in bronze raising aloft a buffalo skull. This great piece was donated by the Walker family and every time I drive by, I muse that perhaps a man actually stood in that spot centuries ago and lifted up an animal skull in gratitude for a successful hunt. Public art is a passion of mine since moving here from Chicago many years ago. In big cities you can turn a corner and often see a statue, a fountain, a bit of mosaic work or stained glass, which someone once called “stained light.” Most often these pieces of beauty are unsigned and uncredited but they provide a smile or a lifted eyebrow or an inspiration to the hurried passerby. We at the Arts Council want Junction City to have more of those smiles and lifted eyebrows and inspiring moments. And we will work hard toward that goal. Please partner with us by attending this year’s events. For our first event of the year, the Junction City Arts Council invites you to the 40th anniversary Sweetheart Dinner Feb. 14 at the C.L. Hoover Opera House, located at the corner of Seventh and Jefferson streets. A cocktail reception begins at 5:30 p.m., and dinner begins at 6 p.m. Our chef will be Vangie Henry, former owner of the Kirby House. For tickets, contact the Opera House Box Office at (785) 238-3906.

President Barack Obama laughs during an interview with host Jay Leno on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Oct. 12, 2012, in Burbank, Calif.

Associated Press

After 22 years, Leno bids farewell to ‘Tonight’
By The Associated Press
BURBANK, Calif. — Jay Leno said farewell to “The Tonight Show” once before, but that turned out to be just a rehearsal. On Thursday, Leno is stepping down for the second and presumably last time, making way for successor Jimmy Fallon in New York. When Leno gave up the venerable show to short-lived host Conan O’Brien in 2009, he did a prime-time NBC comedy series before reclaiming “Tonight” in 2010. This time, Leno’s out the door. “When we left in ‘09 we were going to the 10 o’clock show, so there wasn’t the same sort of finality to it,” said “Tonight” executive producer Debbie Vickers as the program counted down toward its last taping in its longtime studio in Burbank, Calif. On Thursday afternoon, the setting outside the studio in Burbank’s so-called Media District was more fitting of a funeral than a bon voyage party. As rain drizzled off and on, cars carrying Leno’s final audience members filed past the studio gates. The fenced off area where Tonight Show audiences usually line up remained empty throughout the day. Next to the soundstage where “The Tonight Show” is taped, a giant white tent had been erected, presumably the setting for Leno’s send-off party. Outside the tent were rows of white flowers, as well as a few of Leno’s vintage cars. “It’s going to be difficult to not come in and do a show every day for our audience who has been so great to Jay,” lamented Vickers, the executive producer. “And also hard for this group of people (the staff) who have all been together for 22 years,” said Vickers, who worked on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight” before taking the top job with Leno. Leno, 63, said he plans to continue playing comedy clubs, indulging his passion for cars and doing such TV work as comes his way — other than hosting on late-night. “It’s been a wonderful job. This is the right time to leave,” he said last week, and make way for the next generation. Fallon, 39, starts his “Tonight” Feb. 17, with NBC hoping he rides the promotional wave of its Winter Olympics coverage the next two weeks. Billy Crystal was set to help close out Leno’s run, the second-longest for a “Tonight” host next to Carson’s 30 years. The actor-comedian was Leno’s first guest in 1992, and Leno told him he wanted him to be his final one. Garth Brooks will appear as well, along with surprises being kept under wraps. The 2009 farewell ended with Leno filling the stage with the many children born to the longtime staffers of “Tonight,” an indication of the pride Leno takes in being a loyal boss. How can he top that? “In the last segment, Jay will say goodbye to our viewers,” Vickers said. “He has some closing thoughts he’s putting together.” During his 2009 finale, Leno showed some of his favorite comedy bits and made cracks about favorite subjects, including former presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and NBC, the network that shuffled him around. James Taylor, the only featured celebrity, performed “Sweet Baby James.” Leno’s late-night competitors aren’t stepping aside for his final bow. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel, who was harshly critical of Leno when O’Brian lost “Tonight,” has the A-list cast of the new film “The Monuments Men,” including George Clooney, Matt Damon and Bill Murray. On CBS, David Letterman’s “Late Show” will continue its musical tributes to the upcoming 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ appearance on CBS’ “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Sean Lennon, son of the late John Lennon, will perform a Beatles tune with The Flaming Lips.

NBC didn’t make me wait until its television broadcast in the evening. By then, I might have learned of results from Facebook or the multitude of websites offering non-video coverage. The day’s coverage actually began at 1 a.m. EST. with qualification rounds in men’s slopestyle. It’s a form of snowboarding in which skiers display technical skills and creativity as they maneuver down a slope peppered with jumps and rails they must slide across. I know that because NBC had a short video explain-

ing the sport. Of course, I didn’t actually get up at 1 a.m. to watch the Olympics. That would be crazy. Instead, my alarm went off at 4 a.m. Less crazy. I didn’t make it out of bed until closer to 5 a.m., though, when qualification rounds for women’s slopestyle began. It’s unfortunate that NBC doesn’t allow me to watch from the beginning. I have to catch the live stream in progress, the way television worked before digital video recorders came along.

ebruary is the month for lovers, whether those with a twinkle in their eye and a song in their heart or those who just love their libraries. Readers can celebrate both Valentine’s Day and Library Lovers Month by borrowing or buying a romance title and reading it with a passion. According to the Romance Writers of America (RWA), romance fiction is smart, fresh and diverse. Whether you enjoy contemporary dialogue, historical settings, mystery, thrillers or any number of other themes, there’s a romance novel waiting for you. To qualify as a member of the romance genre, titles must contain two basic elements, a central love story and an emotionally-satisfying and optimistic ending. They may have any tone or style, be set in any place or time, and have varying levels of sensuality. These settings and distinctions of plot create specific subgenres within romance fiction such as Contemporary, Historical, Inspirational, Paranormal, and Romantic Suspense.

A look at a real man portrayed in ‘Monuments Men’
By The Associated Press
DALLAS — As part of an Allied mission tasked with saving works of art during World War II, a homesick James Rorimer told his wife in a December 1944 letter from liberated Paris that he was working hard but worried about how much he was achieving. “But I’m here to save works of art and that is what really matters,” he wrote. Rorimer, then 39 and a curator at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, went on to carry out his mission successfully, helping to discover where works of art looted by the Nazis were tucked away across Europe. He was a leading figure in a group of 350 men and women from Allied countries attached to the U.S. Army’s Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Section. In the new movie “The Monuments Men,” Matt Damon portrays a character inspired by the reallife Rorimer, who died in 1966 at age 60. “He was fighting for the art,” said daughter Anne Rorimer. His contributions included helping discover works of art looted from German museums that were stored in Germany’s Heilbronn mines and helping to establish the Munich Collecting Point where works were received, processed and then restituted after the war. The Monuments Men included architects, artists, curators and museum directors. The Harvard-educated Rorimer went on to become director of the Metropolitan Museum after the war. Robert Edsel, the Dallas-based author who wrote the book the movie is based on, said Rorimer was “always a whirlwind of activity.” One of Rorimer’s major feats was gaining the trust of Rose Valland, the French art expert who had been allowed to stay behind at Paris’ Jeu de Paume after the Nazis made it the base for their looting operation. Valland, who unbeknownst to the Nazis spoke German, managed to keep track of where the works — most stolen from Jewish families in France — were being sent. But Valland, who inspired the character played by Cate Blanchett, was not going to easily give up her information. Living in Nazi-occupied Paris had made her wary, even of her fellow countrymen, and she wanted to know that she was giving the information to someone who would help return the works to their rightful owners. “Valland’s watching everything that Rorimer’s doing,” said Edsel. “What evolves between the two of them is this dance ... She’s testing him. She’s trying to find out where his loyalties lie.” Rorimer was first introduced to Valland in fall 1944. Over the months, he earned her trust and by March 1945, when Rorimer was headed with the Army into southern Germany, she told him that Neuschwanstein Castle in the Bavarian Alps was the Nazi hideaway for about 21,000 items stolen from mostly Jewish collectors in France. “If you got to know him, you realized that he’s got to be appreciated. Saving culture was ingrained upon him and he was successful,” said Harry Ettlinger, who as a 19-year-old U.S. soldier volunteered his services to Rorimer after learning the Monuments Men needed someone who spoke German. Ettlinger, one of only a handful of Monuments Men who are still alive, had fled Nazi Germany with his family the day after his bar mitzvah in 1938 and returned to Europe in 1945 with the U.S. Army. He inspired a character played by Dimitri Leonidas. Ettlinger said he quickly realized that Rorimer was a man who got things done, a “wheeler and dealer,” as Ettlinger put it. Ettlinger recalled a time when Gen. George S. Patton’s men had their sights on moving into the building the Monuments Men planned to use for their Munich Collecting Point — a building that happened to be the former Nazi headquarters. Rorimer, Ettlinger said, quickly put a stop to that. Anne Rorimer grew up in the postwar years and says most of her memories of her father are tied to his work at the Met. “I heard more about all the day-today workings of the Metropolitan Museum.” Her father died when she was in college, but she became an art historian and eventually learned more about his work as a Monuments Man.

‘Soup lady’ brings community together at meal
Sheboygan Press Media
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Having grown up in a family of 10 siblings, Ceil DePrey had plenty of opportunities to practice cooking. “It was exciting to cook for them because no matter what you made, someone would eat it,” DePrey said. “You also learn what people like and what they don’t like.” In more recent years, the 78-year-old Sheboygan resident also garnered a couple of nicknames that pay homage to her talents as a chef, including “Soupy” or “The Soup Lady.” About four years ago, her name even became part of the title of an event relating to food that’s open to the entire Sheboygan community and beyond. About four times a year, on the fifth Saturday of the month, First Congregational Church, UCC welcomes the public to a free breakfast, called Ceil’s Meal, which features many of DePrey’s own recipes. Some 100 people attended a recent Saturday meal. The Rev. Julia Hollister, pastor at First Congregational Church, said the meals are important for a variety of reasons. “Having healthy, nutritious food that is homecooked is so important,” Hollister told Sheboygan Press Media. “And then also having people sit down at the table across from someone they don’t know and then starting up a conversation, and the sense of fellowship that comes out of this. And the church members really love having an opportunity to serve.” The idea for the meals came about about four years ago during a weekly Wednesday morning Bible study/discussion time that DePrey still attends at the church. During that particular session, DePrey said the group was reading about the Apostle Paul and the early Christian church. DePrey said she shared her observation that while many places offer a free meal to those in need, the Bible passages demonstrated a different model. “I said, ‘The poor are always being fed by the rich,’ or whatever we think, but I saw that’s not what was going on in the first Christian communities,” DePrey said. “All the people came together and ate as one. So I said, this is my idea of how a community meal should go.” When someone in the group suggested that they call the meals, “Ceil’s Meal,” DePrey initially protested. “I said, ‘Please don’t put my name on it,’ DePrey said. “And they said, ‘We all like that. It sounds poetic.’” Initially DePrey served as the organizer for the meals, but took a step back from the role in 2011 when she had a double mastectomy. Since then, she’s served as a cook or a helper on the day of the meal itself, along with several other volunteers from the church. The meals normally are predominantly funded by the church, and a free will donation is collected at each one. For this most recent meal, however, DePrey said she purchased the necessary groceries herself, despite living on a fixed income in low income housing. DePrey said she’s observed all types of people attend the meals over the years — from doctors and lawyers to homeless or low-income families. “People did come from all over Sheboygan and outside of Sheboygan,” DePrey said. “Some are rich and some are poor and some are in between.” It’s encouraging to see people from all walks of life attend because that’s what the meals are all about, DePrey said. “People, and especially in the early church, they came because everybody is one,” DePrey said. “Sheboygan is becoming more and more diverse. ...We have to listen to other people in order to understand what the world is like.”

Ultra-Orthodox Jews protest pending Israeli draft
By The Associated Press
to register for service. While it awaits parliamentary approval, this week’s court ruling — followed by Finance Minister Yair Lapid’s freezing of the funds — marked the first concrete sanction against draft dodgers and sparked angry reactions from ultraOrthodox leaders who claim the military will expose their youth to secularism and undermine their devout lifestyle. The opposition spilled into the streets Thursday in the form of about a halfdozen simultaneous demonstrations that snarled traffic for several hours. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said some 400 activists tried to block the entrance to Jerusalem, while demonstrators hurled stones at police and set a patrol car on fire in the southern city of Ashdod. Elsewhere, about 2,000 protesters blocked a major highway in central Israel. Police on horses beat back demonstrators with clubs and used stun grenades to clear the roads. Two policemen were wounded and 35 protesters were arrested, Rosenfeld said. The issue of army service is at the core of a cultural war over the place of ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israeli society. The ultra-Orthodox, who make up about 8 percent of Israel’s 8 million citizens, largely have been allowed to skip compulsory military service to pursue their religious studies. Older men often avoid the workforce and collect welfare stipends while continuing to study full time. The ultra-Orthodox insist their young men serve the nation through prayer and study, thus preserving Jewish learning and heritage, and maintaining a pious way of life that has kept the Jewish people alive through centuries of persecution. Leaders of the community, which in Hebrew is known as “Haredim,” or those who fear God, say their followers would rather sit in jail than join the military. They charge their ancient brand of Judaism is under siege and warn of an uprising if parliament approves the draft plan. Yair Sheleg, an expert on the Israeli religious sector at the nonpartisan Israel Democracy Institute, said Thursday’s outburst reflected a genuine rage over the proposed plan but also a show of strength to try to limit its impact. “They understand that things can’t go on the way they have and they will have to make some concessions to the state, but they are hoping to limit the damage,” he said. “For the first time, they are starting to really be affected.” Not all the ultra-Orthodox are vehemently opposed to enlistment and inclusion in Israeli society. Due to its high birthrate and the relatively low participation in the workforce, the ultra-Orthodox community suffers from high unemployment and poverty. Voices have begun to emerge criticizing the ultraOrthodox education system, which teaches students about Judaism but very little math, English or science. More than a quarter of all Israeli first-graders are ultra-Orthodox and government statistics project that if these trends continue, the ultra-Orthodox could make up 15 percent of the country’s population by 2025. The tide has already begun to turn. In 2011, for instance, 55 percent of ultra-Orthodox women and 45 percent of the men held jobs, up from 48 percent and 33 percent respectively nine years earlier, according to Israel’s central bank and its central bureau of statistics. The numbers, while still far below the national average of around 80 percent, show the community is far from the homogenous mass viewed by outsiders.

JERUSALEM — Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jews blocked highways across Israel Thursday to protest attempts to draft them into the army, clashing with club-wielding police who aimed water cannons and fired stun grenades at large crowds of black-garbed men. The violent protests came just days after a Supreme Court ruling ordered funding halted to ultra-Orthodox seminaries whose students dodge the draft and laid bare one of the deepest rifts in Israeli society, highlighting the fundamental disagreements between its secular majority and a devout minority over the character of the Jewish state. Ultra-Orthodox Jews have for years been exempt from military service, which is compulsory for other Jewish Israelis. The arrangement has caused widespread resentment and featured prominently in last year’s election, after which the ultraOrthodox parties lost ground and found themselves outside the governing coalition. The new government immediately began pushing a bill that will alter the existing system to gradually reduce the number of exemptions and require all

Why snow is good
Field & Garden uary or any month of the year. We often talk about a foot of snow equaling an inch of rain, but that is an average. It may only take eight inches of a really wet snow for that inch of moisture, or it may take twenty inches of a real dry snow. The snow this week started out fairly normal but as the event progressed, the snow became dryer. That 10 inches of snow resulted in just under three-fourths of an inch of rain. But here’s the neat part

here’s been a lot of cussing and gnashing of teeth in recent days because of that cool white stuff everywhere right now, known as snow. I will be the first to admit snow is a nuisance. Sure, if I didn’t have to go to work or go to the store or get outside to do anything, it probably wouldn’t be quite so troublesome. But there is work to go to, groceries to buy, meetings to attend, and so there we have the conflict! But if we can get by the inconvenience of it all, snow provides us many very valuable benefits we all too often overlook. Most obvious is the moisture. Okay, many of us would rather have an inch of rain in March than a foot of snow in February or Jan-

about snow moisture. Barring extremely heavy snows, rapid melt and frozen ground, more of the precipitation goes into the soil. Snow melts relatively slowly compared to a typical thunderstorm dropping the same amount of rain in an hour or two. Snow melt will often take days or weeks. The moisture soaks in very slowly. It may make the soil very muddy, even supersaturated, but that’s okay because it soaks on down and doesn’t run off. At one time there was a commonly-held belief that wheat did so well after a snowy winter because of all the nutrients the snow contained. At one time it was believed that a good snow fall held 20 or 30 pounds of nitrogen per acre. Well, it is

true there are plant nutrients in snowfall, but in reality it’s ounces per acre, not pounds. The good growth of wheat following a snowy winter was in part due to the slow release moisture but also because of the great insulation snow provides. The other night, when the temperature dropped below zero, the soil, under all that snow, was comfortably right around freezing at the critical 2-inch soil depth. Even just two or three inches of snow creates a great amount of insulation: insulation from cold temperatures and insulation from the drying and desiccating winds that we saw recently. Here’s the other great misunderstood part of snow’s insulating effect. Not only does it insulate against

unseasonably cold temperatures, but it also insulates or buffers from rapid warm ups. We are challenged in growing fruit crops locally because of the extreme weather variability. All too often fruit trees bud out too soon, and then those flower buds get frozen. To keep this from happening we need to reverse our thinking. Stop planting those trees on the south side of the house, where we think they are out of the cold wind, but in reality in the place that’s going to warm up first. We need to plant on the north side of the house, where the snow melts last in the spring. The snow keeps the ground cold, and the cold ground slows down the process of trees breaking dor-

mancy. The bud development will be delayed and the trees will be less likely to get their flower buds frosted off. Yes, it was very inconvenient to have all that snow mess up our travel. But it’s bringing us so many good things. And if we can just get past the inconvenience, and even the benefits, we can stop and enjoy the incredible beauty that snow brings to our landscape. Incredible beauty and very transient beauty. A beautiful natural sculpture that we better enjoy now, because in a day or two, it’ll be gone.

Notable GCH highlights in 2013
Special to the Daily Union
A little over a year ago we introduced Dr. Joe Stratton to the Junction City and Geary County communities. He was chosen by the Geary Community Hospital Board of Trustees to assume the top spot at the hospital, which was vacated by Chief Executive Officer David Bradley, who retired after 17 years in August 2012. Stratton is a great collaborator and a believer in the value of teamwork. If he were asked who to credit for all the upgrades and improvements, he would, of course, give credit to his administrative team: Alice Jensen, chief operations officer; Darren Rumford, chief financial officer; and Teto Henderson, director of human resources. He would also include the seven trustees and all the department managers and employees who participated in this year’s activities. But, great accomplishments follow great leadership, and that’s where Stratton succeeds. So what has been accomplished since Stratton took over? Most notably, Stratton’s team put together a comprehensive and collaborative strategic plan within the first 90 days, which incorporates five pillars, each with multiple goals, timelines and persons responsible. The five pillars are titled Patients and Families, Quality Workforce, Quality Care, Business Development and Financial. In the interest of brevity, two of the more interesting goals are highlighted here. patient is finished entering them on an electronic tablet and is able to respond back to the patient and/or investigate complaints before the patient leaves the hospital. So far, it’s working well.

Quality refocusing and retooling
Stratton also has a new focus on quality, and not just the clinical side that patients expect. He’s also interested in the safety of the building, access to the hospital from the parking lots and if the food is good, for example. “We are focusing and retooling toward proactive, system-wide, deliberate quality,” Stratton said. “We’re getting everyone to understand what our definition of quality is so that they do the right thing at the right time — every time. He used painting a house as an example. Everyone comes to the project with a different color and a different technique in mind. He wants everyone to approach quality in a uniform manner so that the outcomes are positive and predictable.

“A Century of Caring”
The hospital celebrated 100 years in business this year with the theme, “A Century of Caring.” Dr. W.A. Carr founded the original city hospital on Sept. 9, 1913. Receptions and events, articles through local and regional media, a parade float, a display from the Geary County Historical Museum and a time capsule highlighted the fivemonth celebration.

Patient satisfaction
One project Stratton tackled immediately was improving patient satisfaction across the hospital, but especially in the emergency department (ER). The ER is a place where patients are unhappy and don’t feel well in the first place, so having satisfied patients is extremely difficult in any hospital ER. However, with the help of a new physician staffing company called EmCare, the ER staff now does realtime bedside surveying before the patient leaves. The Qualitik Electronic Realtime Survey gives the patient and/or family an opportunity to comment on the care they received, the treatment by the doctors and nurses, and the wait time. “In our first round of Qualitik surveys, we had 95 percent positive results,” said Stephanie Stremming, RN, nurse manager of the emergency department. Stremming receives the surveys as soon as the

Physician changes
On the physician front, we honored Dr. Ronald Mace, who retired from family medicine at GCH after 38 years of service. Dr. Mace’s replacement was Dr. Rafael Velasquez who studied with Dr. Mace in the University of Kansas Family Practice Residency Program-Junction City Rural Track and worked on Fort Riley before joining us. Physician Assistant Dennis Sewell joined Dr. Velasquez’s practice and is building his own practice. Dr. Mary Otoo, a general surgeon out of the State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y., joined Dr. Charles Bollman and Dr. Fouad Hachem in the Flint Hills Surgical Clinic at GCH.
