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

New Opera House director wants to create identity
ith more than three decades of experience in the arts, Randal West is looking forward to his next challenge — operating the C.L. Hoover Opera House. As the interim executive director of the facility, the upcoming weeks are going to be busy for West as he juggles meetings with organizations and city officials.

“I want to know how people feel about the building,” he said. “There’s a lot of people excited about what can happen here.” The search for the next leader of the Opera House began after Mary Louise Stahl announced her retirement effective Dec. 31, 2013. Through his background in marketing and administration, he’s looking forward to picking up the mantle of a facility which plays a major role in the city’s cultural landscape. “It’s going to be a big challenge and it’s going to take a lot of people getting on board to make this happen,” he said. “I don’t underestimate the challenge that’s here. There’s a lot of coordinating to do for making sure everyone’s voices are heard.” West’s first day at the Opera House was Monday. “It’s been a whole week of meeting people who have a interest in the Opera House,” West said about crafting a vision. “I don’t believe that an executive director should come in and dictate a vision to a building or a company.” Currently, he’s examining where the Opera House does well and improving other functions. “I’m in the process of looking at what’s not being done in Junction City and what we can do,” he said. “Is there something that we can add to the Opera House that would be an addition culturally, that’s not being done by someone else?”

Interim Executive Director Randal West has big plans for the C.L. Hoover Opera House in the near future.
After the vacant position was offered, West jumped on the opportunity and began two weeks later. Most recently, he served as the Executive/Artistic Director of Way Off Broad, Iowa’s only professional musical theatre company. “My energy is full speed ahead to get everything going here,” he said. Although West recently began his duties at the Opera House, he is not officially settled in. West recently made a trip to Iowa to pack up more stuff. “It’s a been a whirlwind,” he said about moving to the Flint Hills. West’s wife is Margaret and together, they have three sons, Gareth, William, and Joshua. Margaret also sings professionally. “I dragged her into musical theatre screaming and yelling,” he said. “She’s going to come here and teach voice.” Gareth is attending Junction City High School. William wants to be a creative director for video games. Although many residents are excited about his background and his move to the Opera Please see Identity, 10A

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

Junction City Commissioners signed an agreement Tuesday that would establish the Flint Hills Regional Transit Administration, a body that could allow ATA Bus to tap into more federal funds. The Flint Hills Regional Council has taken the lead on forming the administration so it can become the fiscal agent, partially resolving the council’s current funding woes. The agreement would be between six members — Geary, Pottawatomie and Riley counties; Junction City, Manhattan and Kansas State University. ATA Bus provides services in those areas and Fort Riley. Each member would appoint one representative to sit on a governing board. Fort Riley would have a nonvoting representative. ATA Bus already is eligible for federal rural transit funds. The urban transit funds now are available because of the establishment of the Manhattan Urban Area, which includes Junction City and Geary County. Kansas State University would cover the 20 percent local match required with urban transit

funds. “This requires no financial commitment by the city,” assistant city manager Cheryl Beatty said. The second source of funds could help the service meet the increased demand and allow the region more options in determining how to spend funds. ATA bus currently serves about 250,000 users per year. The agreement to form the administration will be submitted to the Kansas Attorney General’s office once signed by all parities.

City officials hope an agreement signed Tuesday by the Junction City Commission will help it benefit from cooperative training opportunities with neighboring communities. Commissioners approved an agreement that, once signed by each party, would allow Junction City, Geary County, Manhattan, Riley County and Fort Riley to work together to provide mutual training. “Mainly it would be for police and fire cross-training, is the hope,” Beatty said. “They already do some of that.” The agreement would be for five years, but would allow any party to withdraw at any time. The parties could provide “training opportunities on a ‘space available basis’” but wouldn’t be required to do so, a memo from city attorney Katie Logan to city commissioners stated.

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

NEW YORK (AP) — NBC News says veteran reporter Garrick Utley (UHT’-lee) has died of cancer. He was 74. Utley began at NBC News in 1963, where for three decades he handled a wide variety of assignments. Early on, he reported from Vietnam on the escalating conflict. In later years, he moderated “Meet the Press.” He once speculated that he may have been the only person at NBC News who handled every type of programming as host or anchor.

House’s top Democrat calling for shorter legislative session
TOPEKA (AP) — Republican leaders should slash 20 days from Kansas lawmakers’ annual session because the GOP-dominated Legislature isn’t doing anything to create jobs or improve schools, the House’s top Democrat said Friday. House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat who’s challenging Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s re-election this year, said the shorter session would at least save taxpayers money. Republican leaders dismissed Davis’ comments as political and said they’re working on a raft of bills that aren’t getting much attention but will boost the economy. Davis fired his verbal broadside at GOP leaders and Brownback after more than a week of relatively negative national attention for Kansas. It culminated in “The Daily Show” comedian Jon Stewart’s scathing mockery Thursday night as he described states as the “meth labs of democracy.” Kansas garnered some attention over a “religious freedom” proposal from GOP conservatives aimed at protecting people, groups and businesses refusing for religious reasons to supply goods, services and accommodations to gay couples. But much of the mockery centered on a Democratic lawmaker’s failed bill to rewrite a law on corporal punishment so that it would explicitly allow parents and others to spank their children hard enough to leave “redness or bruising.” Davis derided this year’s annual session as a “circus,” and said Republican leaders have shown little interest in legislation to create jobs, rein in local property taxes and boost education funding. He said if GOP leaders followed his proposal to cut the session to 70 days from the traditional 90 days, taxpayers would save $1.3 million. “I think this session has just completely lost any sense of focus on the issues that people in Kansas really want us to be dealing with,” Davis told reporters. “It’s brought P AUL embar rassment D AVIS upon the Legislature and the state.” Davis blamed Brownback for much of what’s happened during this year’s session. Davis said governors set the tone for lawmakers and, with fellow GOP conservatives in control of each chamber, Brownback has more influence than past governors. Brownback’s office did not immediately respond to Davis’ comments, but the governor has said massive personal income tax cuts he’s championed in recent years are leading a low-tax, smallbusiness “American renaissance.” Senate President Susan Wagle, a Wichita Republican, said Davis “absolutely” is grandstanding. House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Stilwell Republican, had a news conference with the chairman of the chamber’s commerce committee, Rep. Marvin Kleeb, an Overland Park Republican, to highlight low-profile, pro-business legislation. They included measures to allow business associations to offer health plans for their members, rewrite unemployment tax and workers’ compensation laws and overhaul the state agency that settles tax disputes. “The public sent us here to do a job, and that job’s not done yet,” Merrick said. Later, he added, “We’re trying to steer the thing back to focus on the economic and the business atmosphere of this state.” promise designed to see that agencies can cover their costs without records requests becoming “a revenue source for anybody.” The new version limits charges for copying and staff time, though agencies still could charge up to $60 an hour if attorneys are involved in vetting requests. The Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee approved the new version on a voice vote Thursday, sending the measure to the full Senate for debate. But the bill faces opposition from the League of Kansas Municipalities, which argues that decisions about what cities can charge should be left to local officials and based on local costs. The Kansas Open Records Act allows government agencies to set reasonable fees, including for the time it takes staff to review and retrieve records. The law isn’t more specific, except that for the state’s executive branch agencies, a copying charge of 25 cents per page is deemed reasonable. It’s not unusual for government agencies to charge hundreds of dollars to fulfill records requests if they’re not narrow or they involve searching through emails. Typically, payment is required up front, before the records are released. “The goal is to put some reasonable fees in place so an agency’s costs are covered and information can’t be kept from citizens because it costs too much,” LaTurner said after Thursday’s meeting. “Simple requests should be free.” LaTurner introduced his bill last year as soon as he took office, but it did not receive a hearing until this year. The cities’ league objected to banning charges for staff time, and Nicole Proulx Aiken, an attorney, said the new proposal is an improvement. But, Aiken said, the law should not be “one size fits all.” She said it should leave discretion with cities in line with the spirit of a provision of the state constitution granting them “home rule” authority, because costs vary from place to place. “We certainly recognize that records need to be open,” she said. Under the latest version of the bill, records requests that can be provided with less than an hour of staff time or with less than 25 pages are to be provided with no charge. Otherwise, the measure allows for copying charges of up to 25 cents a page. The bill also sets charges of $18 for clerical staff’s time, $38 an hour for computer services’ staff time and $60 an hour for attorneys, who sometimes are called upon to review records to ensure that information that can or is required to be kept confidential is not released. The Department of Administration already has set the same rates for the state’s executive branch agencies.


Senate panel wants to limit open-records fees
TOPEKA (AP) — A proposal to limit the fees state and local government agencies in Kansas can charge people who seek public records has cleared a legislative committee, but its sponsor has backed off a proposal to prohibit charges for staff time in retrieving documents. Freshman Sen. Jake LaTurner, a Pittsburg Republican, said the latest version of his bill is a com-

Kerry delivers a timely lesson on carbon
The following editorial appeared in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Tuesday, Feb. 18: ecretary of State John Kerry, during a visit Sunday to Jakarta, Indonesia, addressed the increasingly pressing issue of climate change. He was speaking to Indonesians, but he could have just as easily, given the relevance and importance of his remarks, been speaking to Americans. China and the United States accounted for 40 percent of the greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere that last year made the level of carbon dioxide the highest in recorded history. Indonesia, surprisingly, is third among the world’s carbon pollution producers. Its emissions come from deforestation and agriculture rather than from burning oil and coal. Kerry walked his audience through the familiar sequence of events. Temperatures increase, glaciers and other ice formations melt, sea levels rise and, if the phenomenon continues uninterrupted, by the end of this century half of Jakarta will be under water. He did not spare the guns on the skeptics of climate change either. The science of climate change, he said, is “absolutely certain” and is accepted by 97 percent of scientists. Taking dead aim at Americans who oppose action on climate change, he said the rest of the world’s population should not be diverted from dealing with the problem by a tiny minority of “shoddy scientists” and extreme ideologues. He pledged President Barack Obama’s attention to the matter and said he had taken his just-completed visit to China as an opportunity to engage its leaders on the issue. He said that governments should stop giving incentives to the coal and oil industries and take advantage of the economic opportunities offered by a rapidly expanding global energy market and by renewable energy technology. Kerry, who has been concentrating most of his energy on Middle East negotiations _ between the Israelis and Palestinians, over Iran’s nuclear program and economic sanctions, and regarding the Syrian conflict _ addressed in Jakarta what he considers to be an equally urgent global issue. He ranked climate change alongside epidemics, poverty, terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction as a global priority requiring attention and action. “It’s everyone’s responsibility,” he said, and “lack of political resolve” is the problem. History and future generations will not forgive lack of action by today’s leaders.



‘Stand your ground’ laws encourage vigilantes
Commentary turn a non-violent dispute into a death sentence. Florida’s “stand your ground” law is merely the worst — the most easily abused — of those laws. Last month, in a Tampa suburb, a retired police captain shot an unarmed man dead in an argument over texting in a movie theater. The retiree claims he felt threatened. Years ago, Florida’s law, like most, required a person who feared for his life to “retreat” if it were possible to do so. If you could leave, you were not in mortal danger, according to the law. That changed when a diminutive firearms fanatic named Marion Hammer ascended to the presidency of the National Rifle Association in the mid-1990s. She was a chief architect of “stand your ground” and a forceful lobbyist for its 2005 passage, insisting that law-abiding citizens needed it to protect themselves from thugs. I interviewed Hammer during her NRA presidency, and her tales were instructive. Though her oft-told lore includes a story about fending off a gang about to attack her in the 1980s, she told me that she had pulled her weapon three times to protect herself from would-be assailants. That sounded like a person seeking out unsafe settings, looking for danger, wanting to be a vigilante. And that’s exactly the sort of personality who ought to be reined in by the law -- not encouraged. The attention-seeking George Zimmerman, who killed an unarmed Trayvon Martin, is just that kind. He stalked Martin through his gated community even after a police dispatcher advised him to stop following. It’s not at all clear what motivated Michael Dunn, but he seemed awfully self-satisfied after firing on a carload of young men. After he shot 10 rounds into the SUV, hitting Davis three times, he returned to his hotel room and had pizza. Dunn’s social views, by the way, are shot through with bigotry, as a letter he wrote from jail revealed: “This jail is full of blacks and they all act like thugs,” he wrote. “This may sound a bit radical but if more people would arm themselves and kill these ... idiots when they’re threatening you, eventually they may take the hint and change their behavior. ... The more time I am exposed to these people, the more prejudiced against them I become.” “Stand your ground” laws simply encourage the Michael Dunns of the world to act on their worst impulses.

t’s been a harsh February, and I’m not talking about the weather. As the annual celebration of the accomplishments of black Americans, replete with references to President Obama, was winding down, the month presented a stark reminder of the casual bigotry that still haunts the lives of black citizens. The verdict in the Florida shooting of Jordan Davis was an unwelcome specter over Black History Month. While Michael Dunn, who killed Davis in a dispute over loud music, will probably serve decades in prison for the attempted murders of Davis’ friends, he has so far escaped punishment for the death of an unarmed adolescent. The jury deadlocked on a single count of firstdegree murder. A juror told ABC’s “Nightline” that race never entered the deliberations, but it’s obvious that pernicious stereotypes about young black men hung over the proceedings. And those prejudices allowed Dunn to escape justice for Davis’ death. (Just try to imagine the opposite scenario: A black teenager claims an unarmed white man made him fear for his life, kills him and gets away with it.) There are no laws or policies that can eradicate stereotypes, no simple cures for implicit bias. But Florida can repeal its awful “stand your ground” law, which has allowed that bigotry free rein. So can the several other states that have passed expanded “self-defense” laws that let trigger-happy gun-toters open fire on the unarmed. The streets are made less safe when paranoid gun-owners are able to

From the editor’s desk
Quite a bit of money

Libertarianism has hope, thanks to students


To the editor:

o figure. City management has announced the infrastructure at the city’s water treatment and two sewage treatment facilities are absolute train wrecks. It seems all of them are operating on a wing and a prayer. That this is a surprise to some of our city officials is a bit of a stretch. After all, we have replaced at least one failed pump and repaired one well, been told of malfunctioning water meters and that the system has leaks several times over the past couple of years. This is a prime example of why government should focus on essential services and stay out of anything the private sector can do. In a pinch, we could do without many city services. However, doing without water is impossible and is probably the most essential service a city can provide to its citizens. How is it an opera house can take priority over water service maintenance (not to mention several other non-essential operations)? The current running estimate of $64 million to fix these problems is staggering when one considers the government-imposed debt burden we are already carrying. Even more salt in the wound is the cost of a study on how to fund the project through adjusting service rates (read how much higher) and how long to stretch the payoff. As usual, no mention is made about how interest on the loan will increase the cost. Options available to the average citizen regarding his/her personal budget have been crushed by slipshod decision making processes and a significant disregard for frugality by the city’s management team for an extended period. Combine this neglect with dramatic increased costs in all areas to include food, utilities, and medical care, probable increased taxation at the county and school district plus the fact that wages are failing to keep up with these costs, and the taxpayer finds him/herself up against the wall. A former city commissioner once said that the city needed to be careful or the citizens would be taxed out of the city (or words to that effect). How many of our citizens are getting close to that benchmark?


Special to the Daily Union

n Saturday, some 1,500 students from all over the world gathered to discuss freedom at the Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C. Economist Donald Boudreaux showed the students a department store catalog from 1958 to underscore how the free market, while contributing to income inequality, also dramatically improved the lives of the poor: “The typical American worker back then had to work 30 hours to buy this vacuum cleaner. Today, a worker has to work only six hours to buy a much better vacuum cleaner. And that’s true for clothing, food, all sorts of things.” That’s how free markets work: quietly, gradually improving things. That doesn’t always appeal to impatient young people -- or to radical old people who fancy themselves social engineers who should shape the world. Such social engineering is revered on campuses. A student from Quebec complained that economists about whom his fellow students learn are “Keynesians, who believe that breaking windows is good for the economy, or neoclassicals, who believe in unrealistic assumptions like perfect competition and perfect information.” If there were a part of America for which the American students at this conference felt a special pride, it was the Constitution. “The Constitution of the United States is a promise about how government power will be used,” Timothy

Sandefur, author of “The Conscience of the Constitution,” told them. “A promise was left to us by a generation who lived under tyrannical government and decided they needed a framework that would preserve the blessings of liberty.” These students appreciated that inheritance, although they said the Constitution is rarely discussed at their schools. They surprised me by knowing the correct answer to my question: How often is the word “democracy” used in the Constitution? Answer: never. The founders understood that democracy may bring mob rule -- tyranny of a majority. So the Constitution focuses on restricting government -to secure individual liberty. If anything, these students were stauncher in their defense of liberty than the Founders. Kelly Kidwell, a sophomore from Tulane University, said, “Regardless of what its intent was, we still have the (big) government that we have now -- so the Constitution has either provided for that government, or failed to prevent it.” That’s an argument that libertarian economist Murray Rothbard used to make. He took the pessimistic view that the Constitution’s “limited government” was an experiment that had already failed, since 200 years later, government was barely limited at all. He concluded that libertarians should be not just constitutionalists but anarchists -- get rid of government completely. That idea sounds extreme to me, and to some libertarians at the conference -- not to mention the few pro-big-government speakers, like movie director Oliver Stone.

But I’m happy that students ask those sorts of questions rather than wondering which regulations to pass, what to tax and whom to censor for “insensitive” speech. Even in an audience filled with libertarians, there were unsettled issues and divisive questions. Some students and speakers sounded a lot like the campus leftists who complain about “privilege.” Others sounded conservative and sought guidance from their religion. I think this diversity is a good sign for the future of libertarian ideas. There are many ways for free people to live and to accomplish their goals -- and as these students learned, the most important thing is not to assume that government has the answer to the questions. Students for Liberty’s website says: “ ... this is the most libertarian generation. The millennial generation is more social, organized and receptive to liberty, but also the most punished by the economic misconduct of older generations.” Old politicians and old voters may never change their minds. But libertarianism grows fastest among the young, and so groups like Students for Liberty give me hope. Those young people sure know more about liberty that I did when I was their age.

Junction City AROUND THE NATION police believe Obama to award Medal of Honor to 24 Army veterans most wanted suspect in town
Junction City police believe a man on their most wanted list has returned to the area. Police Chief Tim Brown said the department is asking the public’s help in locating 36-year-old Brian Lee Wallace. “We just got some information that Mr. Wallace may be back in the Junction City area and that he may be homeless,” Brown said. “We’re hoping the public may be able to shed some light on his whereabouts.” Wallace is wanted by Geary County District Court for felony possesB RIAN sion of drug paraphernaW ALLACE lia, two counts of felony possession of depressants, felony obstructing the legal process and two counts of probation violation. He is wanted by Junction City Municipal Court for failure to appear. Wallace’s total bond is $28,500. The department’s most wanted page on Junction City’s website describes Wallace as 5-foot-7, 160 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. Anyone with information about Wallace’s possible location is asked to call the JCPD at (785) 762-5912 or Crime Stoppers at (785) 762-TIPS (8477).

WASHINGTON (AP) — Seeking to correct potential acts of bias spanning three wars, President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor to 24 Army veterans following a congressionally mandated review to ensure that eligible recipients were not bypassed due to prejudice. The unusual mass ceremony, scheduled for March 18, will honor veterans, most of Hispanic or Jewish heritage, who had already been recognized with the Distinguished Service Cross, the nation’s second highest military award. Only three of the recipients are living. The Army conducted the review under a directive from Congress in the 2002 National Defense Authorization Act. The law required that the record of each Jewish American and Hispanic American veteran who received a Service Cross during or after World War II be reviewed for possible upgrade to the Medal of Honor. The Pentagon said the Army reviewed the cases of the 6,505 recipients of the Distinguished Service Cross from World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars and found an eligible pool of 600 soldiers who may have been Jewish or Hispanic. The Army also worked with the National Museum of Amer-

ican Jewish Military History, the Jewish War Veterans of the USA and the American GI Forum, the largest HispanicAmerican veterans group, to pinpoint potential medal recipients. Of the 24, eight fought in the Vietnam War, nine in the Korean War and seven in World War II. The three living recipients are all veterans of the Vietnam War: — Spec. 4 Santiago J. Erevia of San Antonio, for courage during a search and clear mission near Tam Ky, South Vietnam, on May 21, 1969. — Staff Sgt. Melvin Morris of Cocoa, Fla., for courageous actions during combat operations in the vicinity of Chi Lang, South Vietnam, on Sept 17, 1969. — Sgt. 1st Class Jose Rodela of San Antonio for courage during combat operations in Phuoc Long province in South Vietnam on Sept. 1, 1969.

The private insurance alternative is popular with seniors, and the insurance industry is fighting back in an election year. The administration says costs per person in the private plans will grow more slowly in 2015. Analyst Matthew Eyles of Avalere Health estimates a reduction of 1.9 percent. The plans serve nearly 16 million people, about 30 percent of Medicare beneficiaries. The administration says insurers don’t need to be paid as much to turn a profit, because the growth of health care spending has slowed dramatically. But insurers say they’ll be forced to pass on higher costs to seniors, and some plans may drop out.

Cuts may be in store for Medicare Advantage plans
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration says cuts to Medicare Advantage plans are on the table for next year.

Foul-mouthed Pa. chief ’voluntarily retired’
GILBERTON, Pa. (AP) — A small-town Pennsylvania police chief who gained notoriety for his profanity-laced Internet tirades about the Second Amendment and liberals has left the department — and could star in his own reality TV show. Gilberton officials reached a

settlement agreement with Mark Kessler on Thursday that pays him $30,000 and considers him as “separated from his employment and voluntarily retired,” according to the document, released to The Associated Press through an open-records request Friday. “The matter’s been amicably resolved,” said borough attorney John Dean. “Gilberton’s moving on, as is Chief Kessler.” Borough officials suspended Kessler last year, then began the process of firing him, after he posted videos of himself shooting borough-owned automatic weapons and cursing liberals and others. The videos garnered hundreds of thousands of views online. Kessler has acknowledged they’re inflammatory, but said he posted them to draw attention to the erosion of Second Amendment and other constitutional rights. Kessler’s settlement prohibits him from attending Gilberton municipal meetings or having any contact with the mayor or borough council members. Kessler had previously used his Internet radio show to make vulgar sexual references to borough council members, calling one a drunk and threatening violence against another.

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for six years. He divorced his wife of 53 years because he fell in love with me and wanted the rest of his life to be happy. They had not shared a bedroom since the last of their kids was born. “Ted” has always put his children before me. They dislike me because of “what I did to their mother.” Well, their father did it, not me. I pushed him away for more than a year before realizing how terrible his marriage was. (One of his kids told me.) Ted repeatedly has lied to me about his children. He takes trips to visit them without me and doesn’t tell me he’s leaving until the day before he flies off. He makes all the arrangements behind my back. He once left me for a month and said he wanted a divorce because they told him he should get one. Ted and I have talked about this, and he swears he will change, but he never does. Lately, his children have called me terrible names, and he never says a word in my defense. I have never done or said anything against these grown children. I have never been a part of his family, and I guess I never will. At 78, you’d think he would appreciate having a loving wife and understand that his life is with me now. I don’t expect him to stop seeing his kids, but he needs to put our marriage first. We tried marriage counseling twice, and each time he quit, saying the counselor was biased against him. Is there any hope? — Tired of Being Number Eight Dear Tired: We don’t know what can be salvaged. If you backed off and told Ted he should see his kids on his own and you’ll stay out of their lives entirely, would he, in return, tell you of his plans and insist that his children treat you with respect? If the two of you can handle that, you may be able to stay together and enjoy the times that don’t involve the kids. But there are no guarantees. Sorry. Dear Annie: I am a psychologist, and my husband is a psychiatrist. You give excellent advice, but there is one area where you could be more helpful. When people seek low-cost mental health services, you often print a list of places where they might find help. Unfortunately, that list might not be useful in smaller, more rural areas. While we have several col-

leges, none have graduate departments that offer counseling. The YMCA and YWCA closed with the recession, and local churches offer pastoral counseling only to their own congregants. The main low-cost mental health services offered in our community are through the county. This includes individual and family counseling, psychiatry and crisis intervention. We also have a 24-hour phone hotline to access emergency services. They can also direct people to an outpatient clinic at the local hospital. In addition, Mental Health America (formerly the Mental Health Association) offers referrals, classes and support groups. If people are seeking lowcost help, please recommend that they contact their local county government. — Karen J. Goodman, Ph.D., Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Dear Dr. Goodman: Consider it done. We appreciate the information and will definitely add county services to the list. Dear Annie: I think most families have at least one negative relative who puts a damper on holidays. My late mother-in-law hated the whole season and did her best to depress the rest of us. I’ll skip the details of what happened over the years. She told me once that the reason she didn’t like Christmas was that she had never gotten what she wanted. I asked her what she wanted. She replied, “I don’t know.” — CT

Wizard of Id


ARIES (March 21 — April 19). Instead of trying to overcome your weaknesses, feed your strengths. Eventually, the weaknesses will be so overshadowed that they’ll become a non-issue. TAURUS (April 20 — May 20). There’s a very interesting dynamic coming into your life. Don’t chase it too hard. Think of events and people as fireworks. You have to let go to appreciate them; otherwise, you’ll get hurt. GEMINI (May 21 — June 21). If you can tell the size of a person by the size of the things that bother him or her, you’ll prove your spiritual largesse today. You’ll only concern yourself with the truly important stuff. CANCER (June 22 — July 22). The challenges of the day will require you to make a decision in a flash. Can you judge a book by its cover? Arguably, the aesthetics of the author will somehow be reflected there. LEO (July 23 — Aug. 22). Statistics can never predict the outcome for any one individual. You’ll defy the odds -- a reason to celebrate, even if you happen to be celebrating by yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22). You’ll be faced with a dilemma, and the answer is the same as it always is: love. Bottom line: What is the most loving choice you could make? That’s the right choice. LIBRA (Sept. 23 — Oct. 23). You’re in the mood for a fearless, freewheeling adventure. Who will be your partner in this rebellion? The obvious choice will be the best one this time. SCORPIO (Oct. 24 — Nov. 21). Maybe you can’t help but wonder what others are thinking, but you can turn this to your advantage by imagining that everyone is cheering you on to great heights. Now that’s an empowering thought. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 — Dec. 21). You’ll recognize the truth of relationships: The people who like you don’t need you to do much else besides just be yourself. The people who use you require much more. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19). Happiness is common sense. It’s bringing your own car to the party. It’s never lending more than you can afford to lose and accepting that everyone has their own sense of timing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18). If you can solve, help with or contribute to the resolution of a problem, then it’s a worthwhile problem to call your own. Avoid any problem that doesn’t fall into this category and you’ll have a most fulfilling day. PISCES (Feb. 19 — March 20). You’ll be offered compliments and gifts. Take the compliments with a simple “thank you,” but think twice before you accept gifts. Is there a reason why it’s not a good idea?

House, his current living situation has stirred controversy. West currently resides in Manhattan and not in Junction City or Geary County. West said he searched in Junction City, but a home in Manhattan was the quickest option to meet the needs of his family. He said the local market was also his first search. He indicated his son’s enrollment at JCHS is proof of his commitment to the community and plans to switch to Junction City in the future. “You’re going to see me in Junction City all the time,” West said about his new adventure. “It’s a Junction City icon and I’m going to be a Junction City guy running it.” After earning a bachelor’s and

Sondheim has received more Academy Awards and Tony Awards than any other composer. Some of his work included “West Side Story,” “Gypsy” and “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” Through a Sondheim recommendation, West moved to the San Francisco area and continued to direct, choreograph and conduct for theatres in Northern California. He earned multiple awards regionally for directing, choreography and musical production. While working in Los Angeles in the field of television, West received 13 Telly Awards, seven Vision Awards, eight Aegis awards, and two Videographer Awards. West and his family wanted a slower change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the Los Angeles area. Later, West became the vice president and creative director of Hawthorne Direct, Inc., a full-service, brand response advertising agency based out of Fairfield, Iowa. “It was a really great place to raise our kids,” West said about living in Iowa. After success in the advertising business, West returned to musical theatre. In 2007, he became the first Executive and Artistic Director for the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center, home of the Stephen Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts. In that role, he was responsible for the 524-seat theatre. Before the building opened its doors, West led fundraising efforts for the construction and received permission to use Sondheim’s name for a theatre training program. The facility was the first to do so. “We were the first sanctioned Sondheim theatre in the world,” he said. Theaters in London and New York followed suit. His last stop before Junction City was Way Off Broadway.

California Athletic Director Sandy Barbour says it was “beyond inappropriate” for Arkansas coach Bret Bielema to reference the death of Golden Bears player Ted Agu while defending his position on the NCAA rule proposal to slow uptempo offenses. Bielema brought up Agu while speaking to reporters Thursday night and in an interview Friday with Bielema supports the proposal to require offenses to wait until 10 seconds runs off the 40-second clock before snapping the ball. He says not allowing defenses time to substitute can put players in danger, especially those with the genetic condition sickle cell trait. Agu, 21, died during a conditioning workout Feb. 7. No cause of death has been released. Barbour tweeted Friday: “Bret Bielema’s comments about our Ted Agu are misinformed, ill-advised and beyond insensitive.”

When the Junction City swim team dives into the water at the Hummer Sports Park this weekend for the state swim meet, more than the place in 6A is on the line. The Blue Jays’ 4x50 meter relay team, consisting of Brett Magee, Jason Carter, Blake Nimmo and Gavin Carey, has its sights set on a different achievement — the school record. Set in 1996 with the time of 1:35.08, the record has spent the last 18 years on the wall outside of the Shenk Gym.

Members of the Junction City swim team (from left) Jason Carter, Blake Nimo, Keaton Pettite, Brett Magee, Coach Beth Schlesener, Austin Magee, Evan Hallum and (lying down) Joey Marks pose for a picture on Thursday after their final practice before the state meet.
The 2014 team’s personal record sits just 3.7 seconds behind. But they believe it is within reach. “We’re going to have to be really focused,” Magee said. We’re going to have to get out there and swim our hardest and make sure we keep our stroke clean.” Magee swam in the state meet last year, but many of his teammates were just alternates last season, only being able to take in the events from the deck and not the water. Nimmo said watching last season motivated him to make it as a starter this year. “It was exciting going (there) and it was really energetic walking in,” he said. “But knowing I wasn’t swimming put a damper on that. Knowing that I’m swimming this year, it’s a lot more nerve racking.” Nimmo, just a sophomore, will be swimming with seniors in the meet.

But he said he hopes to bring what he learned this season to the team when he tries to return next season. “For everybody (the record would) mean a lot,” he said. “For the seniors, they can be phenomenal if we got it, just knowing it Please see Swimming, 3B


Late surge doesn’t save Blue Jays from a 56-43 loss to Topeka High

A Missouri man is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of a Kansas City Chiefs fan in an Arrowhead Stadium parking lot. Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced the charge Friday against 23-year-old Joshua T. Bradley of Independence. He was arrested early Friday and is being held on $75,000 bond. Smithville resident Kyle Van Winkle died after being confronted by a group of fans Dec. 1 when he was found in the wrong vehicle in the parking lot. Police say the Jeep looked like one that Van Winkle rode in to the game. Peters Baker said Friday that Bradley hit Van Winkle more than once during the confrontation. An autopsy found that Van Winkle died from a blow to the head.

TOPEKA — Junction City forward Semaj Johnson was on a tear in the fourth quarter against Topeka High. The senior, who scored nine points in the final quarter, and all of his team-high 11 in the second half, was too much to handle for the Trojans. When he hit a free throw to pull his team within 10, 48-38, it looked like the Blue Jays were going to wrest control away from the home team. But then, Topeka drilled a 3-point shot from way out, forced a steal and made the easy layup for a five-point rush and Junction City never could quite gain enough momentum to finish the comeback, falling 56-43 Friday night. Junction City coach Pat Battle said on his postgame radio appearance he wished Semaj had scored with such ease in the first half. “We got the ball inside (in the first half),” he said. “But we only got one shot and that’s just not enough against Topeka High in their own building.” Junction City fell behind

Canada beats US 1-0 in Olympic semis

Associated Press
SOCHI, Russia — For the rematch, Canada skipped the overtime and shelved the theatrics. One slick goal and 60 minutes of stifling defensive hockey kept the Canadians firmly on top of the U.S. and moved them to the brink of gold again. Jamie Benn scored in the second period, Carey Price made 31 saves, and Canada beat the United States 1-0 Friday night in the semifinals of the Olympic men’s hockey tournament. Canada advanced to the gold-medal match Sunday against Sweden, which beat Finland 2-1 in the earlier semifinal at Bolshoy Ice Dome. With an unbeaten run through Sochi, the Canadians are a win away from their third gold medal in four Olympics, and they’re guaranteed their first medals outside North America in 20 years. This win had none of the flair of Sidney Crosby’s overtime goal to beat the U.S. four years ago, and the Canadians didn’t care. “We didn’t score a lot of goals, but we didn’t have to,” Canada forward Jonathan Toews said. “The next game will follow that work ethic. We can check, we can work our tails off, and we can make things real tough for the other team.” After its first loss in Sochi, the U.S. will face Finland for bronze on Saturday. The defending Olympic champions left little doubt about their North American hockey dominance in a rematch of the finale of the Vancouver Games. Although the Canadians had no signature moments and never pulled away, they also never appeared seri-

ously threatened. From faceoff to final buzzer, Canada was in control. “We just wanted to stick to our systems,” Canada defenseman Duncan Keith said. “They’ve got a lot of speed, especially on their top two lines. I thought we did a good job of staying on top of them and taking that speed away.” The Canadians haven’t even trailed in the Sochi Olympics, and they coolly maintained border supremacy on the U.S. by defending their blue line with authority. Their stifling defense has allowed just three goals in five games, and they clamped down on the highscoring American offense for every minute of a slightly anti-climactic evening. “We didn’t really create much offense,” U.S. forward Patrick Kane said. “On the chances we did have, their

goalie made some good saves. It’s a little disappointing. ... I think everyone expected a tight-checking game, but to say we would have gotten shut out, I don’t think anyone would have thought that.” Jonathan Quick stopped 36 shots for the Americans, who had trailed for just 7:19 in Sochi before Benn’s goal put them in a hole they never escaped. Canada went ahead early in the second period during a shift by Benn and Anaheim Ducks teammates Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. Defenseman Jay Bouwmeester threaded a pass into the slot, and Benn deflected it past Quick, whose aggression sometimes makes him vulnerable to such shots. Canada beat the Americans for the fourth time in five Olympic meetings since the NHL players joined the party in 1998. The showdown might have been the

last Olympic meeting of these nations’ best players for a long while if the NHL keeps players out of the 2018 Pyeongchang Games, forcing the rivalry to move to a World Cup or world championship. Benn, the Dallas Stars captain, didn’t get an invitation to Canada’s summer Olympic orientation camp and was one of the last players added to the roster. But he’s had a great tournament and his goal was all the offense needed by Price, the Montreal goalie who easily handled the Americans’ few good chances, including their clunky power plays. Crosby still has no goals through five games in Sochi, but the Canadian captain had his best overall game, even if linemate Chris Kunitz failed to convert a handful of stellar chances created by his center. The Americans were hoping for redemption from their gut-wrenching defeat four years ago. The U.S. rallied from a late two-goal deficit on Zach Parise’s tying goal with 24 seconds left in regulation, only to lose on Crosby’s score. Instead, the Americans got another reminder of Canada’s clout. They still haven’t won Olympic gold since the Miracle on Ice in a drought that will be at 38 years by the next Olympics, no matter who’s wearing the U.S. uniform there.

Shockers last unbeaten team

Associated Press
KANSAS CITY — The last of the unbeaten, Wichita State has just three games remaining before it enters the Missouri Valley tournament — three games left in its regular-season pursuit of perfection. The question worth pondering: Would it behoove the Shockers to lose one? They’re trying to become the first team since Saint Joseph’s in 2004 to enter their conference tournament unbeaten, and the first team to make the NCAA tournament without a loss since UNLV in 1991. Neither of those teams went on to win the national championship. That hasn’t happened since Indiana finished off a perfect season in 1976, of course — a sign of just how difficult it is to deal with the mounting pressure of flawlessness. And that’s why some coaches harbor this most unnatural of feelings: They would just as soon lose a game that ultimately doesn’t matter so that they can learn from their mistakes, hit refresh on the season and enter the win-or-go-home sweepstakes with one less distraction. Yes, coaches programmed to win at nearly any cost might actually relish a loss. “I think it’s hard for teams to be great unless they go through some crap,” said Kansas coach Bill Self, whose Jayhawks started 20-0 when they won the 2008 national championship. Kansas lost to Oklahoma State five games before the Big 12 tournament, which it ultimately won with ease. That gave the Jayhawks plenty of momentum — without the attention of a long winning streak — to ultimately knock off Memphis in the national title game. If he was in Wichita State’s situation, Self said, “I’d coach to win every game as hard as possible, but I would really enjoy any adversity that’s thrown my way while trying to do it.”

would keep the little family aspect going that we’re all there together.” The 4x100 meter relay team of Brett Magee, Austin Magee, Evan Hallum and Carter also qualified for the state meet. They sit 13 seconds behind the school record, but still believe it is attainable because the atmosphere and competition level helps lower times. The 4x100 relay wasn’t sure it was actually going to make it until the very end. “When coach came in saying that we had done it, I was still trying to figure out why everyone was so happy,” Hallum said. “And then they told me and I was extremely excited because I didn’t think it would be possible.” Hallum said his excitement was enhanced because he only recently moved up from an alternate to a starter on the relay. While the time gap between the 4x100 team’s current PR and the school record may seem vast, the swimmers are confident in their ability as a unit to execute. The atmosphere of the state meet also helps cultivate better times. “Everyone’s motivated there because you know all the starters are among the best in the state,” Austin Magee said. “So everyone is motivated to compete against each other to see who is the best.” But most importantly, the team plans on having fun this weekend. “It would be a big deal because it would mean we’re entrenched in school history,” Austin Magee said. “The fact that we’re going to be there on the plaque and then someday some other kids will try and beat us, that would be a big deal.”

Morrow also finished with six points in the contest. Sophomore Raye Wilson, who’s seen his playing time increase due to tenacious defense, added five points of his own. Junction City managed to outscore Topeka High 29-23 in the second half. “(It’s) a very small victory indeed, a minute victory,” Battle said. “Before you win a game, you have to win a half. I think that was something to build on. And there’s a lot of fight left in this dog. For anyone who’s thinking there isn’t, they’ve got another thing coming.” Junction City falls to 5-13 on the season. The Blue Jays travel to Topeka West on Tuesday. “They are senior dominated, playing better and better each game,” Battle said of the Chargers. “Each time we see them on film, they look better. They’re playing with more confidence, they’ve got some shooters and a six-foot, sixinch tall kid who’s capable of doing some things inside.”

to knock down 2410 pins to finish in third place overall Friday at the Junction City Bowl. “I was shooting for a little higher than that, quite a bit higher than that,” Junction City coach Brad Adams said after the tournament. “But then, all the boys teams shot low today. If we would’ve shot average today, the way everyone else shot, we would’ve won this easy but nobody shot average today, everyone shot low.” Jayson Quicksall finished two spots behind Wriston with a score of 617. He had a low first game before bouncing back strong to finish out his series. “I feel like I have a strong mental game, I don’t get frustrated easy,” Quicksall said. “My first game was a 160, which is horrible for high school. Then I knocked it out with a

265. A lot of this game is your ability to come back. If you get upset when you bowl bad the first game, the next two are going to be bad too.” Two other Blue Jay bowlers, Ian Yeazell and Kris Quidachay, also meddled by placing in the top 20. Yeazell finished 13th with a score of 569 and Quidachay f inished 14th with 566 pins. “That’s probably one of Will’s best showings this year with a 625,” Adams said. “Hopefully that is, since we’re getting toward the end of the season here, hopefully that’s going to progress into something even bigger come next Friday.” Adams has higher expectations for his team next week at the regional meet. He expects them to come out and compete for the title next week. “We talked about it early in the week about what we thought we had to average to win this and we weren’t very close to that today,” Adams said.

“But we were in third and we were out of first by 50-some pins. If we were to hit what 0.00 0.00 we wanted to hit, we 0.00 would’ve taken this. 0.00 But that’s going to be our goal next week -1,739.41 when we go to region0.00 als and if we hit our 0.00 -2,013.73 goal there, we can still -273.98 win regionals.” The Junction City 0.00 girls bowling team 0.00 took seventh place at 0.00 the meet with the score 0.00 of 2079. 3,456.11 Three Blue Jays, 0.00 Kaylee Stutz (11th), 1,478.09 Ryan Coffman (13th) 0.00 and Samantha Goudey 0.00 (14th) meddled by fin1,295.87 ishing in the top-20. 0.00 Shawnee Heights 1,120.43 208.87 won the girls side by 1,818.58 knocking down 2181 1,976.13 total pins.

“We need to play with a sense of urgency,” Junction City coach Nate Parks said on his postgame radio appearance. “We scored more points in the fourth quarter than we did the entire game. We need to start learning how to play like we did in the fourth quarter the whole game.” Freshman Darja Russell opened the fourth with a bucket. Then, a few plays later, she struck again to make it 40-18. Then, sophomore Kealee Rains started to heat up. After being held scoreless in the first three quarters, Rains made Topeka High pay from the rim and behind the arc. Rains led Junction City with 10

points, all coming in the final quarter. Junction City opened by falling behind 10-3 after the first quarter. Junior Cassidy Meadows put her team on the board with a field goal and Russell converted a free throw, but the Jays couldn’t find the scoreboard the rest of the period. The Blue Jays couldn’t close the gap in the second, falling behind 20-8 at intermission. “One of the things they did is they played a pretty solid and aggressive zone that we couldn’t figure out,” Parks said. “Our girls were playing a little tentative and then at times we were forcing some shots up but when we’re not knocking them down and they’re making them, it makes it hard to stay in the game.” Senior Kori Kamm was hounded the entire game whenever she gained possession of the ball. Topeka High

used double and sometimes triple teams to negate her from the game. She was limited to just two points. “If you’re a senior and you’ve been doing it time and time again to where everybody knows you’re going to be able to go inside and get some baskets, they’re definitely going to be dropping on her,” Parks said. Russell scored six points in the game. Meadows and sophomore A’Kia Fain each scored five in the contest. Junction City (3-14) heads back to Topeka on Tuesday for a game against Topeka West. The Blue Jays have three games next week before substate begins. ““I think, for the girls, they like (playing three games in one week),” Parks said. “They’d rather play a game than actually practice. Hopefully we can get three wins and go into substate strong.”

No. 8 KU nearing another Big 12 title

Associated Press
LAWRENCE — This was supposed to be the season that the Jayhawks were finally challenged for conference supremacy. Oklahoma State returned a bevy of stars, including All-American Marcus Smart, and teams such as Baylor and Iowa State thought they had the makings of a championship contender. Instead, Kansas has proven once more that the road to a title runs through Lawrence. The Cowboys are struggling just to make the NCAA tournament during a miserable season that hit a low when Smart was suspended for entering the stands at Texas Tech. Baylor and Iowa State have both gone through plenty of lows with their highs, while teams such as Oklahoma and Kansas State have proven they can beat just about anybody — including the Jayhawks. Kansas State pulled that trick last week. The problem for the rest of the league is that except for Texas, nobody else has been able to replicate it. That means the Jayhawks (20-6) are 11-2 in the standings, while the Longhorns (20-6) are at 9-4. Iowa State, Oklahoma and Kansas State are stuck in a logjam at 8-5. “The big thing is we can’t talk about anything past Saturday,” Kansas coach Bill Self said, “because if it doesn’t happen Saturday, it’s a onegame lead as opposed to a three-game lead.” Kansas has been in tight races before, of course.

Kansas’ Bill Self coaches from the bench against Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas, Tuesday.
Not all of those conference championships have been won in a walk. Last season, the Jayhawks actually tied with Kansas State for the regularseason crown, only to beat the Wildcats in the league tournament. The four titles before that were won outright, but the Jayhawks were forced to share the championship with Texas in 2006 and ’08. The last time Kansas didn’t win at least a share was 2004, when Oklahoma State won it. To put that feat into perspective, the Division I record is held by John Wooden’s UCLA teams that won 13 straight conference championships. Gonzaga had its streak of 11 consecutive West Coast Conference championships stopped in 2012, only to win it

Stephen Spillman • The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal/AP again last season. “To me it’s not even about the league race Saturday,” Self said, “it’s about playing Texas and playing a team that’s already handled us once, and it’s one of the residual effects is that it’s big for the league race, but also it’s just an opportunity for us to try to play better against a team that smacked us around pretty good.” The Longhorns beat the Jayhawks 81-69 on Feb. 1 in a game that was never really close. The lead was 15 points by halftime and remained that way most of the game. “It’s just about us. In a big game, we just weren’t ready to play and we lost,” Kansas center Joel Embiid said, “but we’ll be ready on Saturday.”

Memories from Troop 117 still ring strong in scouts’ lives
Note: This is a reprint of an article published years ago on Junction City’s Boy Scout Troop 117, the first African-American scout troop in Kansas. This article was written by Susan Franzen. Today’s article was originally published in The Daily Union on Feb. 20, 2000. B Y S UsAN L lOYD F RANZEN About a month ago, James F. Warren sent me a picture dated February 1938, showing Boy Scout Troop 117. While lettering at the bottom of the photograph listed the names and stated the troop was sponsored by “Luke Steed” American Legion Post 159, Warren said this was the post in Junction City made up mostly of Buffalo Soldiers. The legion commander and past commander were among those pictured, but the representation from the Ninth Cavalry Regiment included a white officer, Major Limbocker, and the director of the Ninth Cavalry Band, WO Clarke. The scout committee was a joint effort by men from Junction City and Fort Riley. Warren said he believes the story of the only black Boy Scout troop in Kansas is something that should be part of the lore of the Buffalo Soldiers. The retired sergeants who lived in Junction City, as well as those on active duty at Fort Riley, were inspiring fathers and citizens. The dignity of these men encouraged the youths to show personal honor and compassion as well as worldly achievement. The scout troop was the most concrete example of their concern for the younger generation. Because Warren has kept in touch with many members of Troop 117, he was able to give me names and phone numbers of several, including assistant Scoutmaster William “Potsy” Hurd Jr. While serving as assistant Scoutmaster, Hurd joined the rifle and pistol team at Fort Riley. He was one of three men representing Fort Riley in the national marksmanship competition for military personnel. In the qualifying championship at Fort Riley, he placed third, behind two white soldiers from the Second Cavalry. But in the national contest, he placed first overall, winning the Fort Bliss Trophy. The traveling trophy he brought with him back to Fort Riley bore the names, regiments and posts of all previous winners. The engraving clearly showed Hurd was not only the first winner from Fort Riley, he was also the first from any black unit. It is not hard to imagine how proud the Boy Scouts were to have such a leader. Capt. Hurd, who was Pvt. Hurd in 1938 and only a few years older Instead, he served with a black company in the invasion of Germany in 1945 and took ROTC when he went to college on the G.I. Bill. After he was commissioned, he spent five years on active duty, including service with an artillery unit in Korea, and served 27 years in the reserves. Norris Gregory Jr. stressed a different aspect of scouting. It taught him to be trusting and trustworthy. It gave him experience with democracy. By being treated with respect he learned to treat others with respect, gained self-confidence, learned public speaking and developed leadership qualities. He made use of these skills and attitude as a teacher in Topeka and San Bernardino, Calif. He was elected to the San Bernardino City Council and served from 1968 to 1975. John Murphy, whose father retired from the military in 1938 and moved his family to California, was the most surprised to receive a call about the Boy Scout troop. He had been the troop’s bugler. “I didn’t play the bugle, I played the slide trombone.” Most likely he was drafted as bugler. Reveille wouldn’t sound quite right on a slide trombone. Murphy’s recollections about music bring out another aspect of life in the 1930s at Fort Riley. There were two jazz bands in the Ninth Cavalry, as well as the military band that marched. Since the married band members lived in the small area known as Rileyville, the children were surrounded by musicians. One was an especially close friend of the Murphys, which inspired John’s parents to seek a musical education for their sons. While John played trombone, his brother Joe played saxophone. “Poor as we were, our parents paid for instruments and music lessons for a couple of years.” John Murphy was the scout who remembered riding horses. He also told about rounding up the stray dogs at Fort Riley to hunt jackrabbits through the hills. They had no guns, so the youth ran down the rabbits. In an economy where a chicken on Sunday was the major meat for the week, the young hunters were proud of putting meat on the table. When asked what he learned in scouting, Murphy replied, “I learned to be prepared and to help people.” According to Warren, John Murphy has expressed his concern for others throughout his life. Warren recalls Murphy made a special stop at Fort Riley to put flowers on his mother’s grave because he’d promised her he would. Character made up of many acts few people know.

Members of Boy Scout Troop 117 are shown in 1938. The troop was sponsored by the “Luke Steed” American Legion Post 159, according to the photograph.
than the scouts he led, was known to be from a proud Ninth Cavalry family. Both his father and uncle served as officers during World War I. The uncle, Robert Porter Hurd, fought with such courage that he was awarded the Croix de Guere by the French government. In those days, there was no lack of combat veterans from World War I and the Spanish-American War among the retired Ninth Cavalrymen in Junction City. Warren heard many of their stories on front porches, at the barber shop and especially at the ROTC camp where he and his friends shined shoes. Retired soldiers were their supervisors. “The stories were usually humorous and sometimes exaggerated. There were a couple of sergeants who usually exaggerated, and there were some good old barbershop arguments about who did what.” For Warren, who lived in Junction City with his mother and grandparents, the retired sergeants were role models as well as storytellers. Sgt. Scott, Sgt. Lallis and Sgt. Barbour were three he recalled with special fondness. Leo Scott was the same age as Jim Warren, so he spent a lot of time with the Scott family. The Lallis brothers, Jack, Phil and Alonzo, were all outstanding athletes. Growing up, Warren was particularly impressed with Phil Lallis, who lettered in three sports for four years in high school — a total of 12 letters. Warren admired Sgt. Barbour because he raised several sons by himself after his wife died and “they all turned out great.” The extended family aspect of the black community of the 1930s is something many recall with nostalgia. Warren’s memory is, “all the elders in Junction City were surrogate parents. Any of them would call my parents if they saw us doing wrong.” The sergeants also took the young boys fishing with them in Clarke’s Creek or Three Mile Creek. By joining the scout troop, Warren also got to know the sergeants who were still on active duty, for several of them were on the scout committee. One of these was Norris Gregory Sr., the committee chairman. Norris Gregory Jr. believed uniting the boys from Junction City and those from Fort Riley was one of the most valuable things the scout troop accomplished. While Fort Riley children went to school in Junction City from kindergarten through high school in those days, the activities of the Boy Scout troop provided an opportunity for building friendships and teamwork. The camaraderie served them well in high school and college sports, and lasted throughout life for many. One aspect of the troop treasured in many recollections was its diversity. Not only did it bring together Junction City and Fort Riley youth, it taught boys ages 11 to 16 to work together. They were also proud of the multiracial aspect of the group. Warren was quite sure that Clarence Saunders and the Murphy brothers were Filipino in spite of their names. In fact, their fathers were African-American, but they looked like their Filipina mothers. He believed Scoutmaster Don Mosley was Native American, through he could not tell which tribe. Both Hurd and Warren proclaimed proudly that Sgt. Scott was “full-blood Cherokee,” with a strong resemblance to Cherokee Chief Loco. Perhaps one of the most ironic aspects of the troop, which was made up of poor black youth in a segregated society, was that the military sponsorship gave the scouts opportunities few other troops enjoyed. This fact alone made them feel special. Few, if any, of the families had access to cars, so the scout committee made arrangements for an Army truck to come to each scout’s house to pick him up and drive him to the meeting at Fort Riley. They enjoyed cocoa and donuts for refreshments. When the troop met in the West Riding Hall, the scouts were allowed to ride the horses around the track. The regiment provided food, transportation and tents so they could attend camps and jamborees. They were exposed to a group of men who cared for them and had high expectations for them. “Get an education and keep up your grades,” was a phrase they often heard from scoutmasters. It must have made an impression, because six members of the troop graduated from college and most of the others were successful in whatever line of work they chose. Most, if not all, served in World War II because they graduated from high school while the war was going on. All of the former scouts I reached said they believed their experience in Troop 117 had been a vital influence in their lives, but each had a different impression of what it did for him. Jim Warren thought it was scouting itself that was important. It gave him a permanent appreciation of the outdoors, cooking over a campfire, pitching tents, blazing a trail, finding your way back, flag signals, Morse code, woodcarving, outdoor games and sports that developed cooperation. His favorite activities were night hikes. For him, the teamwork developed on the football field enabled him to effectively organize civil rights activities in Junction City High School and years later, in civil rights with the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, Equal Economic Opportunities Commission and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance. Richard Wells, the youngest member of the troop, said he thought he learned “soldiering” from the scouts. They pitched their tents in rows and submitted to military discipline and drill. They developed athletic ability and leadership. He admired his soldier leaders so much he wanted to join the Ninth Cavalry.

what isn’t said that is the problem. In this particular case, the grass seed being advertised sounded like the perfect thing. Deep green, rapid growth and very cold hardy. The ads often show lots of pretty slick photos of a very nice-looking lawn. The ad never tells you what kind of grass seed this was, other than the name it was being sold under. I’m just really glad the individual called me. In this case, the grass seed was actually a blend of annual ryegrass, perennial ryegrass, red fescue and bluegrass. Of those four types of grasses, the only one that MIGHT be acceptable for our area was the bluegrass, if it was the right cultivar. There are many bluegrass cultivars that are not well-suited for our area. This particular grass


had a phone call from a local resident this week asking about a particular plant, in this case, grass seed. The first thing I asked the individual was whether they had seen an advertisement in the Sunday edition of a newspaper. The response was yes, and that causes the warning flags to go up and the sirens to go off in my head! Before I go any further, let me just say that most of the companies that advertise like this are legitimate companies. If you order grass seed or plants from these companies, you will likely get what you ordered. But it may be overpriced, or the size of the plants you get may very well not be what you are expecting. The bigger problem is the hype from the advertisement raises your hopes way too high. Quite often it isn’t what is said in the ads, but

Beware of the slick and colorful seed advertisements
Field & Garden blend will germinate quickly and be a very dark green color, as long as it is cool and wet. But give us a summer like 2012 again, and most of a lawn planted to this stuff would be dead. The varieties are very winter hardy, but they aren’t very heat or drought hardy! Another ad that I recently saw was for a flowering scented shade tree. It was touted to grow very quickly, and made it sound like it would be a full-size tree in one growing season. Two of these trees were only $15, plus shipping and handling, of course. As you read past the hype and got to the bottom line, it was a paulownia, a tree native to China. It’s a coarse tree, it’s a messy tree and it can become a weed. It can grow fast, but the wood is somewhat brittle. Flower buds are easily killed by the kind of temperatures we’ve seen this winter, so it often never flowers here. If you were to order these, you most often would receive a bare root tree a foot or two tall. It is not a tree I would ever recommend being planted. These advertisements are put together by people who are very skilled at selling. They know in February and March, after a long snowy winter, anything that looks springy is going to grab your attention. Then you throw in some cleverly-worded text that, while not an outright lie, may be

distorting the truth or not telling the whole story. Just like that, you’re hooked and you’re picking up the phone to order! The first step is to be cautious. The slicker it looks and the better it sounds, the more cautious you want to be. You are better off to drive to a nursery and buy something within 100 miles of home than you are to order something out of some distant state. I always like the 72-hour rule. Set the advertisement aside for 72 hours and then before you order, call me up and talk to me. More than likely I will advise you to throw the ad away and not buy it because of the old phrase that “it sounds too good to be true,” is usually pretty accurate!

Home-cooked meals promote healthy living
alancing work and family is not an easy task. I am constantly looking for ways to make my efforts of parenting and professional life work together. With three young boys and a husband, I find meal preparation is one area I spend a considerable amount of time planning for. I am guessing that, as our boys get older, this will become even more important. They are already showing signs of “adolescent appetites.” I look for menu ideas that are fast (or use a cooking method that saves time), nutritious, and tasty. I keep my most popular and convenient recipes readily at hand. Since I love to cook and experiment with food, meal preparation may come easier to me than to others. For those who feel less comfortable designing menus that are nutritious and tasty, there are a lot of resources you can use to help you get started. One of the resources available through K-State Research and Extension is a publication called Month of Menus: Healthy Meals for Healthy Living. As the name implies, Month of Menus gives you daily menu ideas for each meal for an entire month. The menus are designed for healthy living and include dishes containing only moderate levels of fat and sodium. It includes both practical and uncomplicated recipes that will satisfy the appetites of those with a diverse palate. This resource also provides an overview of food safety, definitions to common cooking terms, and a list for making emergency substitutions. It will provide you with a great start to planning out meals far enough in advance to help you balance the demands of feeding your family with the time restrictions that go with being a working parent. You can access this resource at: http://www. Month_of_Menus.pdf. In addition to planning ahead, another way I cut down my time while providing a healthier and nutrient-packed meal is by using my slow cooker. Londa Nwadike, K-State Research and Extension Food Safety Specialist recently shared some helpful information about using slow cookers as part of your meal planning and preparation efforts. “Slow cookers are a great way to prepare a delicious hot meal on a more flexible preparation schedule, which works well for many people, including families with young children such as mine.” She provided 10 tips to keep in mind while using slow cookers. 1. Keep perishable foods refrigerated until preparation time. 2. Make sure hands, utensils and work surfaces are clean. 3. Thaw meat completely before adding it to the slow cooker. It’s okay to cook large cuts of meat and poultry, as long as it is thawed. Check the slow cooker instruction book for suggested maximum sizes of meat and poultry to cook in the cooker. 4. Preheat the cooker (be sure it is plugged in and turned on). 5. Fill the cooker 1/2 to 2/3 full. Liquid should

Living Resourcefully almost cover any meat or poultry that is used. Start with hot liquids if possible. 6. If possible, turn the cooker on the highest setting for the first hour of cooking time and then to low if desired. Don’t use the “keep warm” setting for cooking — only for keeping food warm. 7. Keep the lid in place as much as possible while cooking to keep the heat and steam trapped in the cooker. 8. Before eating, use a food thermometer to ensure the products have reached a safe temperature. 9. Put leftovers in the refrigerator in a shallow container. They will cool faster than if you put the crock itself in the refrigerator. 10. Don’t use a slow cooker to reheat leftovers.

More information about slow cooker use is available in the U.S. Department of Agriculture fact sheet: Slow Cookers and Food Safety. Another thing I take into consideration when I am planning a weekday evening meal for my family is the school’s lunch menu. Each month, I go on the school’s website to download and print their month of lunch menus. I want to make sure I am not repeating the same meal at home they are eating at school. More often than not, I find something I was considering for the evening meal is similar, if not the same, as something the kids will be eating that day at school. Varying the protein, grains, fruits, vegetables and dairy products the family consumes each day promotes better eating habits. Keep the meals simple. The easier it is to make the meal, the less stress you are putting on your body after a full day at work. Think about what the meal will look like on the plate and make sure you have at least half of your plate full of fruits and vegetables. Vary the color com-

bination of the food served to make the meal more appealing. Recruit your family to help. This promotes communication in the family and teaches the kids about meal preparation as part of an everyday routine. Planning for our meals in advance helps reduce the number of times we choose to eat out for our meals. Eating at home has proven to have multiple benefits for the health of an individual and the family as a whole. By preparing and eating meals at home, you can usually save money, cater to the taste preferences of your family, help you consume healthier food and portion sizes, and allow for more family time together. For more information about meal planning and healthy menu options, feel free to contact me at the Geary County Extension office at (785) 238-4161. Until next time, keep living resourcefully.

Morton, Goetz to wed First Lady highlights ‘drink
more water’ show in NYC


Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama helped a museum spread some health advice Thursday: Drink up — water, that is. Kicking off a series of appearances to celebrate the fourth anniversary of her anti-childhood-obesity initiative, the first lady and fitness advocate visited Manhattan’s New Museum to see a street-art-inspired exhibit that aims to make its prohydration message eye-catching. Mrs. Obama signed a massive paint-bynumbers artwork created for the show and gave her thoughts, and hugs, to eighthgraders who helped paint it and created a poster of their own. “You guys are going to make a huge, huge impact on the health of our nation,” she said, noting that plans call for taking the show to museums and galleries in Washington and other cities around the country. “The fact that you guys can be involved in something this huge and exhibit this kind of creativity all over the country is like a once-in-a-lifetime thing, so you should feel very excited,” she said, “because I certainly am.” Mrs. Obama has made children’s wellness a focus of her work as first lady, launching her “Let’s Move” effort in February 2010 with the goal of helping children reach adulthood at a healthy weight.

Michael and Cleion Morton of Wamego have announced the engagement of their daughter, Katelin (Kate) Morton to Brett Goetz of Hutchinson. Goetz is the son of Alan Goetz and Laura Raasch. Morton graduated from Kansas State University in 2012 with a degree in human ecology and a minor in agribusiness. She is currently employed at Community First National Bank in Manhattan. Morton is currently pursuing admittance to dental hygeine school. She is the granddaughter of Don and Florence Whitebread of Junction City, and Lynne and Sonny Morton of Wamego. Goetz graduated from K-State in 2009 with a Bachelor’s of Science in business. In 2013, he completed his LPN at Hutchinson Community College. He will complete his degree as a registered nurse in May of 2014. He is currently employed as an LPN at Wesley Towers Retirement Community. The wedding will be held June 14 at the University Christian Church in Manhattan.

She plans to highlight progress and announce new health and wellness initiatives in the coming week, with events planned in Miami; in Bowie, Md.; and at the White House. She also was set to appear Thursday during comedian Jimmy Fallon’s inaugural week as the new “Tonight Show” host, and she scheduled interviews with “Extra,” “The Rachael Ray Show,” NBC’s “Today,” and “Despierta America,” a weekday morning program on Univision, the Spanishlanguage television network. Meanwhile, the first lady has released a brief video asking people to post photos and video on social media platforms to “show me how you move.” She strolled through the New Museum exhibit with Rose Cameron, a mother who started an offbeat bottled-water brand called WAT-AAH! to appeal to children. The company is collaborating on the exhibit, which features work by 14 artists. Trey Speegle looked on as Mrs. Obama penned her name on his 6-by-16-foot canvas, printed with part of a vintage paintby-number seascape and emblazoned with the words “drink up.” Speegle created a painting in honor of President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign and said he felt “like it’s come full circle” after meeting Mrs. Obama. More than a dozen students from Little Red School House & Elisabeth Irwin High School, a private school in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, had filled in part of the number-coded canvas.

Michael Urie to take ‘Buyer & Cellar’ on tour

AP Drama Writer
NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Urie is finally getting out of the cellar — and hitting the road. The former “Ugly Betty” star will kick off a mini North American tour with Jonathan Tolins’ utterly charming and often wacky one-man show “Buyer & Cellar.” The tour has stops lined up in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Los

Angeles and Toronto. But New Yorkers have no fear: The show isn’t closing its offBroadway doors. Urie, whose run ends March 16, will be replaced starting March 18 by Broadway veteran Christopher J. Hanke at the play’s home at the Barrow Street Theatre. “I know the show will be in very good hands,” Urie said during a joint interview Wednesday, turning to his fellow actor. “I’ll

show you the ropes. I’ll show you where you can keep your lunch. I’ll show you how to clock in.” “I’m excited,” said Hanke, whose Broadway credits include “Rent” and “Cry-Baby,” and who originated the role of Bud Frump in the Daniel Radcliffe-led revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” He also had a recurring role on “Big Love.” Urie recently starred in the cel-

ebrated off-Broadway revivals of “Angels in America” and “The Cherry Orchard” and also “How to Succeed in Business,” appropriately taking over the role of Bud Frump from Hanke. Now Hanke is replacing him. Both men will be playing the struggling actor Alex Moore, who lands a job as a clerk in an underground mall of quaint shops. The weird part is that the mall is part of Barbra Streisand’s

estate and only she goes down there to shop. Moore, employed to dust and watch over Streisand’s endless amounts of expensive stuff, has a fraught tango with the fictional Babs, eventually teasing out questions about celebrity, materialism and fame. “It will be a hard transition to not be doing it every day,” said Urie, who will have done more than 360 performances.

Utah church shooter receives 4 years to life in prison
By the Associated Press
OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A Utah man who entered a Father’s Day Mass handin-hand with his wife then shot her dad in the head seconds later was sentenced Thursday to four years to life in prison for attempted murder. James Evans, who survived the shooting at an Ogden church, spoke at the hearing Thursday, and asked the judge to send Charles Richard Jennings Jr. to prison for as long as the law allows. Judge W. Brent West told Jennings what he did was horrendous, The Salt Lake Tribune reported (http:// “You shook the foundation of our entire community,” West said. “I’m left with the impression that you are a danger.” Jennings, 36, took a plea deal in November, pleading guilty and mentally ill to charges of attempted murder and aggravated burglary. He also acknowledged a firearms violation. About 300 people were standing up for communion during Father’s Day Mass last June when Jennings entered St. James the Just Catholic Church holding his wife Cheryl’s hand. Seconds later, police say, Jennings fired a single shot at the back of Evans’ head. The gunshot pierced the silence, sending people diving for cover beneath pews. The point-blank shot could have killed the 66-year-old Evans, doctors said. His wife, Tara Evans, who was standing next to him, said her husband turned his head at the last moment. The bullet went through an ear and out a cheek, missing his brain. Tara Evans also spoke during the hearing, asking the judge to deliver the maximum sentence. She told the judge that their daughter said Jennings was upset that day because she planned to come look at vacation photos after Mass. She said her son-in-law aimed the gun at her after shooting her husband, but parishioners rushed toward him. “Jim and I were to be killed execution-style,” she said, the Tribune reported. “He needs to be locked up and throw away the key,” she said. Jennings’ attorney, Michael Bouwhuis, said Jennings’ mental instability led to the shooting. Bouwhuis said he was having a psychotic episode on the day of the shooting. “He was mad and the voices influenced him to shoot the victim,” said Bouwhuis, the Tribune reported. Jennings was ruled competent to stand trial last year. Jennings also received sentences of six years to life for each burglary count and one year in jail for the firearms charge, the Tribune reported. Court records show Jennings has a criminal record going back to 1996. Over the years, Jennings has pleaded no contest to felony charges of receiving a stolen vehicle and criminal trespassing. Jennings also has pleaded guilty to theft charges and a felony charge of attempting to tamper with a witness or juror.

Cardiac Arrest vs. Heart Attack



any people mistakenly assume cardiac arrest and heart attack are the same thing. However, sudden cardiac arrest is not a heart attack. In fact, there are distinguishable differences between the two that are best explained by detailing what is actually happening when someone is suffering from either one.

What happens during a heart attack?

During a heart attack, blockage occurs in one or more of the heart’s arteries. That blockage subsequently prevents the heart from receiving enough oxygenrich blood. Research indicates that many people with symptoms of a heart attack actually delay seeking treatment for more than two hours. In a 2010 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers found the average delay in arriving at the hospital after the start of a heart attack was roughly two and a half hours. Eleven percent of the more than 100,000 cases examined in the study waited more than 12 hours from the start of symptoms before seeking treatment. Those symptoms can include chest discomfort, shortness of breath and discomfort in other areas of the body that do no improve after five minutes.

What happens during cardiac arrest?

It’s never too early for adults to start taking steps, including daily exercise, to prevent heart attack and cardiac arrest.

We do 'em!

When a person is experiencing cardiac arrest, their heart’s electrical system is malfunctioning and suddenly becomes irregular. The heart begins to beat very fast while the ventricles may flutter or quiver. Blood is not being delivered to the body during cardiac arrest, and a genuine fear is that blood flow to the brain will be reduced so drastically that a person may lose consciousness. Unlike a heart attack, cardiac arrest requires immediate treatment. It’s best to seek treatment promptly for both a heart attack and cardiac arrest, but those experiencing cardiac arrest are at much greater risk of death if treatment is not sought immediately. Men and women, young and old, should also keep in mind that heart attack can sometimes lead into cardiac arrest, highlighting the importance of seeking treatment as soon as any symptoms of heart attack begin to appear.

How are heart attack and cardiac arrest prevented?

The goal is to keep blood flowing through the body as smoothly as possible. This means avoiding blood clots and the build-up of plaque in the arteries. That might sound simple enough, but plaque build-up and the process of coronary artery disease has been shown to begin as far back as childhood, when diets are not typically tailored to avoid heart disease.
