Young entrepreneurs helping Junction City grow A
Entrepreneurial movement
The Schoenrocks aren’t the only entrepreneurs who identified a need in Junction City and now call the community home. When Daniel Bhakta, 35, wanted to expand the Ike’s Place Bar and Grill brand outside Abilene, he selected Junction City. “We felt that there was a need for a newer place with a little more decent atmosphere, you know, more family-oriented, TV, sports — just a place that we could see ourselves hanging out, as well,” he said in an interview this week. “That’s what I thought the void was in town.” Daniel was able to find a building close to the Express Inn and Suites, which he also owns. The neighboring building, 416 Golden Belt Blvd., now is the second Ike’s Place location. Kendall and his brother own the restaurant building, formerly Señor Tequila’s, but Daniel has made the space his by adding TVs and the right types of seating for both the hangout and sit-down restaurant atmospheres. Ike’s Place opened

in late January. So far, so good, Daniel said. “I think we’re 90 percent positive on the feedback, so I think that’s a pretty good standard to hold up,” he said. “I think we’re selling most just on the consistency of the food. I think our service is probably still in the works and getting the kinks (worked out) on that, but that’s where we get our feedback.” Before deciding to remain in the area and expand Ike’s Place to Junction City, Daniel, his wife and their 15-month-old daughter had the option of moving to other cities. Dallas and Kansas City were considered, he said. “Ultimately, we decided, you See Young, 10A

New Fort Riley Elementary project to be addressed
The Geary County Board of Education is preparing to take the next step toward building a new elementary school on Fort Riley. Unified School District 475 officials will make a recommendation for Hutton Construction to receive the Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP) for the construction of a new Fort Riley Elementary School in the amount of $18.41 mil-

Morris Dozier was the first AfricanAmerican man elected to the Geary County Commission.


hrough the campaign slogan of “My only special interest is you,” Morris Dozier made history in Geary County. After becoming fed up with discrimination policies, Dozier wanted to make changes in Geary County. That decision in the early 1970s resulted becoming the first black individual to sit on the Geary County Commission. “I was happy to be recognized,” Dozier said. In the early 1960s, Dozier said there was significant segregation in the housing marketing. “Even the realtors could get away with discriminating against black and mixed families,” Dozier said. “For a long time, they could do what they wanted to do.” The area he represented in a western portion of the city was predominately black and consisted of interracial couples. But in general, Dozier said there was a lack of representation for minorities in local government. It was a topic discussed amongst members of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Dozier decided to attend more political-based meetings. In 1972, he became chairman of the Geary County Democratic Convention. During that same year, he became a delegate for the District and State Democratic Convention. “Somebody had that get into that Democratic structure Please see History, 10A

lion. The discussion and decision is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday at the Freshman Success Academy, 300 W. Ninth St. The recommendation was postponed in early February after board members requested a breakdown of the project. Through a program from the Department of Defense, the district received a grant totaling more than $16 million. The district will provide a match of $4.024 million, bringing the total to

$20.12 million. From that amount, $18.41 million is for the construction cost and $900,000 is for architect and engineering fees. The remaining $810,000 is for furnishings. The 75,000 square-foot school will be constructed on Rifle Range Road and may hold up to 500 students. Some of the features include a centrally-located library media center, areas for collaboration, and a gym with Federal Emergency Management Agency standards.

During its July meeting, the board approved Hutton Construction to be retained as the Construction Manager at Risk for the project. Superintendent Ronald Walker said the GMP process and the Construction Manager at Risk program allows the district to maximize construction efficiencies and saves money. “It also guarantees us that a project is going to come in on time and that it’s going to be either at or

With bright signs and cheers of encouragement, Lincoln Elementary School showed support for the Junction City High School wrestling team. While leaving town for the 6A state tournament, the student-athletes greeted the children with high fives on Eisenhower Drive. The Thursday event was organized by teacher Stephanie Bogenhagen. She’s the mother of three wrestlers and her husband, Chris, is a president of the local Junction City Wrestling Club. For more on the Junction City High School wrestling team’s performance in the state tournament, see Sports, section B.

The Unified School District 475 internet service was down for the latter part of this week after officials believe the system was attacked. “The first outage affected most of the state,” USD 475 Superintendent Ron Walker said. “The attackers sent out a code that caused one or more computers to repeatedly send millions of pieces of data to clog our network.” Because of the attack, WalkR ONALD er said the system experienced W ALKEr an “overload of data.” All financial, employee and student data was not breached, he said, due to the district’s firewall securing the data. There was never any fear of data being compromised. The shutdown affected access to any USD 475 web-based system, including websites, Skyward family and student access, as well as email. As of Friday evening, the website was still down. There was no word on when full service will be restored.

Spring Valley Elementary teacher Tim Stuck reacts to having his head shaved Thursday during an assembly at the elementary school. Four teachers — Paden Town, Kenny Upham, Brian Forster and Stuck — fell victim to the hair clippers after students raised nearly $3,000 for Pennies for Patients, with the money going to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Spring Valley’s goal was to raise $1,500, with the promise a staff member would shave their head if students reached that goal.

Hospital has new chief nursing officer

Honoring Dr. Seuss at Ware Elementary
Dawn Engel is excited about stepping into her new role as Chief Nursing Officer of Geary Community Hospital. She has spent 27 years at the hospital, mostly as the unit manager of the obstetrics department and later as assistant chief nursing officer. “To be one of the primary leaders, especially in the nursing department, is a overwhelming feeling,” she said. “It’s been my life for so long. It’s an amazing opportunity.” She succeeds Lynn Addair, who retired a few months ago. Engel filled the position on an interim basis. “Everyone has been very supportive during my interim experience and I hope to continue to work with all departments to make GCH the choice for health care,” she said. One of her goals is to focus on patient satisfaction and enhance the experience at the hospital. “Luckily, I have a lot of knowledgeable and motivated team managers who help to meet our goals of high standards in patient safety and satisfaction,” Engel said. “We’re all well-aligned and on the same page.” Some of the other goals are to involve staff members if changes in processes are needed and increase manager certification in the nursing speciality areas. “We’re headed in the right direction and I want to keep going that way,” she said. Prior to GCH, Engel received a diploma from the Newman Division of Nursing at Emporia State University. She later bridged over to a Bachelor of Science in nursing from Fort Hays State University. Next, Engel received her Masters of Business Administration from Jones International University. With parents originally from Michigan, Engel was born at GCH and graduated from White City High School. “This has been my home from the time I was born,” Engel said. “I’m very proud that I’m from the Junction City area.” She is married to Larry Engel. Together they have three sons and a daughter.

Winter-weary Americans plead: ‘Get me out of here’


Associated Press
CHICAGO (AP) — Shannon Frauenholtz has had it with winter. Barely able to stomach the television news with its images of snowbound cars, she heads to the tanning salon, closes her eyes and imagines she’s back in Mexico, where she’s already vacationed once this winter. She’s toyed with the idea of joining her mother in Hawaii or just driving to an indoor water park, figuring that while the palm trees might be plastic and the “beach” smells of chlorine, at least it’s warm. “I don’t need a vacation. I don’t need the relaxation,” said Frauenholtz, of New Ulm, Minn. “I just need the heat.” All over the Midwest and the East Coast, travel agents are being inundated with a simple request: Get me out of here. And travelers fortunate enough to have escaped are begging hotels to let them stay a little longer. Because they know how miserable people are, warmweather destinations in California, Arizona and Florida have stepped up their enticements. Trains and billboards in Chicago have been plastered with ads showing beaches and pool scenes. In Philadelphia, one promoter put fiberglass mannequins dressed in flip flops, tank tops and shorts atop taxis with their arms outstretched — a whimsical inducement to “fly” south. Reminding Americans that there are places where nose hairs don’t freeze is an annual tradition. But those in the business of luring visitors to warmer climates say it’s rarely been easier than this season, when “polar vortex” has entered the everyday vocabulary and “Chi-beria” has become popular enough to emblazon on T-shirts. “This year we wanted to have a little more fun with it,” said Susannah Costello, of Visit Florida, the state’s official marketing organization, which came up with the mannequin idea. The ads showing children and bikini-clad women making snow angels in warm beach sand are more plentiful than in years past, acknowledged Erin Duggan, of Visit Sarasota County. “We did that because we knew winter was shaping up to be brutal,” she said. Not that people needed much reminding of the harsh conditions. “The winter is so bad, there is a certain amount of desperation,” said Alex Kutin, an Indianapolis travel agent. “They come and say, ‘I’ve got to get somewhere warm. Where do you recommend?”’ Another assault of bad weather was expected over the weekend, with forecasts for at least 6 inches of snow through Monday in a 1,500-mile stretch from Kansas to the East Coast. Parts of the Northeast could see a foot or more. Kevin Tuttle, of Verona, Wis., was so intent on finding warmth that he decided against Florida out of fear that the polar vortex might reach down and find them there. Instead, he and his wife will take their 4-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter to Manzanillo, Mexico, a resort on the Pacific ocean. “That’s near the equator, right? It’s got to be pretty warm,” Tuttle said, adding that “a lot of sand castles are in my future.” Just how many more people are trying to get out of the ice box is unclear. Airlines do not release any route-specific data. And although the government tracks some of it, figures will not be released for six months. But other travel statistics suggest there has been a jump. The travel site found that the number

of hotel bookings in warm-weather spots made by customers from Illinois, New York, Massachusetts and the Washington, D.C., area rose 7 percent in January compared with last year. Visit Florida says hotel bookings in the state rose 3 percent in the four weeks ending Feb. 15 compared with the same period last year. And the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association reports that RV parks from Florida to Arizona report are packed, with one Arizona park expecting a 6 percent increase in revenue over last year. Travelers are also staying longer once they arrive. Micah Hilgendorf said the thought of heading back to ice-covered Chicago, where he owns a couple of bars, prompted him to tack on three days in Florida before and

after a cruise out of Miami. He also flew to Palm Springs, Calif., for four days. “All of that is last-minute because of the weather,” Hilgendorf said. Dave Knieriemen, a retired engineer from Fremont, Ohio, is doing the same thing. “We’ve reserved a room for another night in case our flight gets canceled because of the weather,” he said this week from Arizona as he watched the Cleveland Indians play a spring training game. “And it’s so horrible (in Ohio) we might stay a bit longer, anyway.” Travel agents say the numbers of travelers would be even higher if all those who wanted to get away could find a seat on jets that are already full. “It’s far easier to find people a resort to stay in or a cruise ship than to find them a flight,” said Gail Weinholzer, of AAA in Minnesota. The inability to find a flight, afford a trip or get time off from work has sent a surge of customers to businesses at home that can offer even a short escape from the cold, such as tanning salons. “We’re getting a lot of people coming in here to warm up,” said Kirstin Leffew, the manager of Bronze Bay Tanning in Pendleton, Ind. “They want the beds that have been used the most, the ones that are nice and hot.” Indoor water parks say they are busier than usual, too. Joe Eck, general manager of the Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells, said business is up 10 to 15 percent because of the bitter cold. Among those who decided to go to the Wilderness — which has real palm trees, the resort will remind you — were Jennifer Drost and her family. “Our kids are young enough where they still enjoy playing outside, but they haven’t been able to because it was so darn cold,” said Drost, who lives with her husband and three children in Fond du Lac, Wis. “All of us were getting on each other’s nerves, (and) we just needed to get out of the house.”

Another view An opportunity to right-size the U.S. military


The following editorial appeared in Newsday on Wednesday, Feb. 26

n crafting a military budget for a nation not at war for the first time in 13 years, the challenge is to transform U.S. forces to meet changing security demands while slashing spending. There is pain and risk in the plan that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel previewed this week to meet those twin imperatives. But the transformation has to happen, and the $496-billion military budget for 2015 that the administration will send to Congress next week — down from $520 billion in 2014, not counting $92 billion for the war in Afghanistan — is a reasonable blueprint. It would reduce troop strength in every military branch, active and reserve, while increasing only special forces. For instance the Army would be cut from 520,000 active-duty troops to about 440,000, the smallest number in decades. Overhead would be slashed through cuts in headquarters budgets and civilian personnel. An entire class of Air Force fighter jets would be eliminated. And active-duty military personnel would get a pay raise of only 1 percent. The downsizing is appropriate, but it isn’t risk free. Hagel said it would create some gaps in training and diminish the U.S. military’s capability to execute extended or simultaneous ground operations. But the public has no stomach for long, grinding ground wars like those in Iraq and Afghanistan. The threat from nations with big armies has been surpassed by terrorism, which is better met with small, mobile special forces. And deep troop cuts would enable the military to hit spending targets in the Budget Control Act of 2011 while sustaining readiness and technological superiority, a necessary balance. But Congress has to get real. Hagel warned that a return to the deep, across-the-board cuts slated for 2016 under sequestration would compromise national security. That’s debatable, but Congress can’t keep demanding savings while rejecting attempts to actually cut spending. It can’t continue pumping up military pay and benefits that have risen 40 percent more than growth in the private sector since 2001 — and more than the Department of Defense requested. Congress can’t keep rejecting benefit cuts, such as the small reduction in cost-of-living increases for some military retirees it passed and then repealed this year. It can’t continue favoring weapons systems based on where they’re built rather than whether they’re needed, or rejecting the department’s request to close domestic bases, as it has for two years. This is an opportunity to create the military the nation needs. Congress must seize the moment.

Acting like a founder M
ost of us can remember feeling that someone had done us a great injustice. On those occasions, we want nothing more than to exact revenge. I remember being unfairly treated as a lowly ROTC cadet by one of the sergeants who resented the fact that my brother had been promoted to captain and company commander over him. I was ambitious and worked extremely hard, resulting in my promotion in record time to the rank of colonel and city executive officer. This individual was now firmly under my command, and I could have wreaked havoc in his life. Instead, I chose to give him extra responsibilities. Responding to the challenge, he proved himself to be quite capable, earning further promotions. Because I resisted the urge to retaliate, we both won. This same principle applies in politics. Unfortunately, in the past, we have been a reactionary country, resulting in political shifts back and forth from left to right without a lot of forward progress. After attaining power, both sides act in ways that are less than honorable, but they justify their actions by citing similar transgressions performed by the other side. This immature behavior is vividly exhibited by President Obama in his shameless use of executive orders to try to force the eventual success of Obamacare. Administration supporters defend his strategy by pointing out that previous presidents have issued even more executive orders than Obama. It’s like saying that punching someone 40 times is more harmful than shooting him four times. However, it’s not the quantity of executive orders that matters, but their impact. There are always people who attempt to pick apart an analogy, but most readers will see the point. In the current controversy, a massive politically

motivated government program was forced on half of the population with their opinions completely disregarded. No legislation of this magnitude ever had been passed in the history of the United States by one party with unanimous opposition by the other party. Each executive order to sustain Obamacare is like pouring salt in a wound. Furthermore, the concept of seeking common ground is further damaged. When the political pendulum swings again, which I predict will begin this November, it is imperative for the sake of our progeny that those in power act like “the adults in the room” and govern in a lawful and constitutional manner. This means refraining from the use of excessive government interference in choosing winners and losers. It also means an evenhanded enforcement of all of our laws rather than repeating the Obama administration’s practice of selective law enforcement. Adult governance is founded upon objectivity, not ideology. The American people have suffered through decades of power-drunk politicians, many of whom practiced deceitful manipulation. This has caused tens of millions of Americans to abandon in disgust their duty to be informed and responsible voters, which only makes the situation worse. I have encountered a large number of elderly people who have told me that they have given up on the United States and are simply waiting to die. This is the reason that more eligible voters opted not to vote in the last presidential election than actually voted for either candidate. Many of these people are members of “the greatest generation.” They fought tangible and visible forces that threatened our freedom. The forces facing us now are less tangible, but are nevertheless at least as lethal to our way of life. Despite all the naysayers on both

sides, I am convinced by the people I encounter on the speaking circuit that common sense, honesty and fairness can return to the corridors of power in America. We can govern in a manner that not only re-engages millions, but also provides liberty and justice for all. As it was in the days of the Founding Fathers before the American Revolution, now it is necessary for ordinary Americans to engage their neighbors, friends and colleagues in serious discussions about what kind of nation they want to pass on to their children and grandchildren. It is important that everyone knows who represents them both at the state level and at the national level. The party affiliation of those representatives is not nearly as important as their voting record. Every American, regardless of their political affiliation, must distinguish those who represent the free-enterprise system based on personal responsibility and equal treatment from those who are willing to give away our personal freedom in order to enhance the size and scope of the government. The power to reverse the deterioration of our nation is within the hands of “we the people.” We must realize that our countrymen are not our enemies, and we must understand that we cannot rely on those in the media and in politics to tell us the truth. We need to go beyond them and rely on ourselves to craft a truly free America that works for all of us. This means we must become informed voters and use our votes effectively to choose the kind of leadership that represents the will of the people.

Letter to the Editor KDOT has money to burn

GOP would bar poor from health care D
uring a Republican primary debate in the last presidential election cycle, there was a dispiriting moment in which tea party audience members cheered at the idea that a comatose uninsured American — unable to afford health insurance — would be left to die. That infamous outburst, among others, has prompted GOP bigwigs to try to cut back on primary season debates, hoping to limit appearances that might expose the party’s baser impulses. But that mean-spirited and contemptuous attitude toward the sick is alive and well in the Grand Old Party, as its maniacal (and futile) resistance to Obamacare has made clear. Now, one Republican politician is pushing that callousness to new lows: He wants to bar the uninsured from hospital emergency rooms. Last week, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal criticized a decades-old federal law that requires all hospitals that receive Medicare funds and have emergency facilities — and that’s most — to treat any patient who walks in needing care, regardless of his ability to pay. “It came as a result of bad facts,” Deal said, according to The Atlanta JournalConstitution. “And we have a saying that bad facts make bad law.” Deal says that many people use emergency rooms unnecessarily, and those patients inflate health care costs. He is factually correct. But there are other facts that undercut his arguments and reveal his hypocrisy. First off, Deal is among those redstate Republicans who have vociferously opposed the Affordable Care Act, which makes health insurance available to hundreds of thousands of people who couldn’t otherwise afford it. If


To the Editor:

Commentary more people had health insurance policies that paid for doctors’ visits, fewer would use emergency rooms for routine complaints. Second, Deal, like many Republican governors, has refused the Medicaid expansion made possible by Obamacare, even though the federal government would pick up 100 percent of the cost for the first three years and 90 percent until the year 2022. That expansion is the best chance many Georgians without means have for getting health insurance. So, to sum up, Deal hates Obamacare and refuses its Medicaid expansion, which would keep the working poor out of emergency rooms. In addition, he wants to deny them access to emergency rooms unless they can pay. Really, governor? Don’t you insist that your values are “pro-life”? It’s no wonder that GOP strategists shuddered when audience members responded so cruelly during the CNN/ Tea Party Express debate in September 2011. It portrays the party as pitiless — a reputation unlikely to attract a majority of voters. Quiet as it’s kept, most Americans support keeping Obamacare, despite the relentless pounding it has taken from Republicans. (And despite a website rollout that was infuriatingly incompetent.) A new poll by the Kaiser

othing gets me more stirred up then seeing obvious examples of governmental waste and then hearing people on the left say we need to pay more in taxes to support government. This was most evident during a recent run down I-70 through the area when I noticed some brand new overhead signs marking several of the exits in this area. Not a problem, right? Well it becomes a problem when you consider that these signs, which I’m certain are very expensive, are erected about 100 yards away from the large existing signs mounted on the side of the road. Exactly how many signs and arrows does even the dullest driver need to find an exit anyway? In spite of the hemming and hawing from Kansas Democrats about how KDOT is being short-changed in the state budget, it seems to me that they have some serious money to burn if they can afford this most obvious example of duplicative waste.

About this page

Family Foundation found that 56 percent of Americans favor keeping it in place, while just 31 percent want to repeal it. (Twelve percent want to replace it with a GOP plan.) That’s likely because most voters, no matter their reservations about Obamacare, know that the Republican Party has no good solution for the millions of Americans who work every day but still don’t earn enough money to buy a health care plan. Americans have struggled with the nation’s dysfunctional health care “system,” and they know it’s overdue for an overhaul. Meanwhile, as the mid-term elections draw closer, the GOP struggles to come up with a plan that pretends to overhaul the health care system. Looking to avoid being painted as mere obstructions, House Republican honchos are working to draw their caucus together behind a bill that would replace Obamacare with a workable alternative. But the most sincere plan so far — one offered by Sens. Richard Burr, R-N.C., Tom Coburn, R-Okla. and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah — would probably offer policies too skimpy to do any good once a policy-holder gets sick. Besides, even that replacement idea seems unlikely to draw broad support among the far-right tea partiers, who believe that allowing the uninsured poor to die is the appropriate government response to the health care crisis. That’s a hulking bit of hypocrisy for a party that advertises itself as “prolife.” Deal’s latest proposal is one more reminder of how little that label means.

AROUND KANSAS K-State gets Kansas prosecutor launches US Senate bid $60M gift, largest in its history

AP Political Writer


AP Sports Writer
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas State University received a $60 million gift Friday from the family of longtime benefactor Jack Vanier, the largest private donation in school history, to be used for a range of academic programs and the latest round of athletic development. The Vanier family has donated millions over the years for academics, upgrades at Bill Snyder Family Stadium and to endow the football head coaching position. “We continue to have lots of conversations with families and donors and supporters of Kansas State about making investments, and this gift came out of those conversations,” Kansas State President Kirk Schulz said in an interview with The Associated Press. “The Vanier family has been supporting Kansas State University for at least 50 years, through a couple generations,” Schulz said. “This constitutes their largest gift.” Schulz said that Vanier family, which has significant cattle and ranching interests across Kansas, was proud to make the gift but wanted to remain “in the background.” “Kansas State has always been a very important part of our lives,” the family said in a statement issued by the school. “Our hope is this will inspire others to make their investments in this great university.” The gift earmarks $20 million for the third phase of the school’s master plan for athletics, which includes a new academic learning center, strength and conditioning spaces, football offices for the coaching staff and fan amenities in the north seating bowl of the stadium. That part of the stadium already features the Vanier Football Complex, which houses the locker rooms and other team meeting spaces. The timeline and budget for the third phase of construction has not been announced. The school last fall unveiled the second

phase, a $90 million renovation to the west side of the stadium that included a new training table and improved luxury seating. “From the moment we arrived in 1989, members of the Vanier family have been faithful friends to the football program,” said Snyder, who has led the football program to two Big 12 titles. “We are deeply grateful for this wonderful commitment.” The remaining $40 million from the Vanier family’s gift will be spent on students, faculty and academic interests at the Manhattan and Salina campuses. They include: — Student scholarships and fellowships in the College of Technology and Aviation at the school’s Salina campus, the College of Business Administration and the Biosecurity Research Institute; — Support for students across both campuses, including presidential scholarships and a gift for the K-State Proud Student Opportunity Awards; — Faculty professorships and fellowships in the College of Human Ecology and the Biosecurity Research Institute, as well as professorships that may be awarded in any college; — Excellence funds for the Biosecurity Research Institute and at the Salina campus, which allows university leaders to respond to urgent needs and emerging opportunities; — Support for the K-State Welcome Center in the old Memorial Stadium in Manhattan, which will provide a central location for new student services, admissions, financial assistance, housing and dining services, and career and employment services. “The impact of this gift will be wide-ranging,” said Fred Cholick, president and CEO of the KSU Foundation. “The generosity and thoughtful planning that went into this gift will make a difference across the academy for students and faculty.”

TOPEKA — A northeast Kansas prosecutor on Friday opened his campaign for the U.S. Senate by criticizing three-term Republican incumbent Pat Roberts as out of touch and “carrying the banner of the far right.” Shawnee County District Attorney Chad Taylor became the first Democratic candidate in the race by filing papers with the Kansas secretary of state’s office and paying a $1,760 fee. During a kickoff news conference, he described Roberts as a “D.C. insider” who’s been in Washington too long to help solve national problems. Taylor, 40, was first elected district attorney in the county that includes Topeka in 2008, and he was re-elected without opposition in 2012. Roberts, 77, started his career in politics as a congressional aide starting in the late 1960s; he served in the U.S. House for 16 years before winning his Senate seat in 1996. He’s seeking re-election this year, but he faces a GOP primary challenge from Dr. Milton Wolf, a 42-year-old Leawood radiologist with tea party backing. “The answers do not lie

in continuing to do the same thing over and over, nor in electing the same person over and over and expecting a different outcome,” Taylor said. Roberts’ executive campaign manager, Leroy Towns, said Taylor will face questions from voters in Republican-leaning Kansas about why they should bolster the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate. “The contrast in this race is going to be clear,” Towns said. He said as a Democrat, Taylor must defend President Barack Obama and the federal health care overhaul. “He’ll run with the party, and he’ll defend it,” he said of Taylor. Republicans used Obama as a political foil in sweeping all statewide and congressional races in 2010 and 2012, and the president received 38 percent of the vote in Kansas when winning re-election two years ago. No Democrat has won a U.S. Senate race in the state since 1932. Roberts portrays himself as a tested conservative and has endorsements from key anti-abortion and gun rights groups. He’s repeatedly called on U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, a former two-

term Kansas governor, to resign over the troubled rollout of the federal government’s online health insurance marketplace, though Roberts voted to confirm her appointment in 2009. Wolf issued a statement Friday saying Kansas voters want “a consistent conservative.” He said during a campaign rally Thursday in Topeka that Roberts had an “election-year conversion” to conservatism and mocked the incumbent as being “on Cruz control,” a reference to tea party icon and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Topeka man sentenced to 2 life terms
TOPEKA — A Shawnee County judge has sentenced a 40-year-old Topeka man to two consecutive life sen-

tences for two murders more than a decade apart. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Shawnee County District Court Judge David Debenham on Friday sentenced Monroe Eugene Lockhart III to two consecutive life sentences for the murder of Corey Brown in 2012 and Damon Anderson in 2000. Lockhart pleaded guilty Jan. 16 to premeditated first-degree murder in the Jan. 3, 2012, slaying of Brown, and the Valentine’s Day 2000 death of Anderson. Both victims were from Topeka. Lockhart has to serve 50 years — 25 years on each of the life sentences — before he’s eligible for parole. The life terms also are consecutive to a nearly 10-year sentence tied to a violent Topeka home invasion.

Husband worried about wife’s internet habits
Dear Annie: My wife and I have been happily married for eight years. This is a third marriage for both of us. A few months back, my wife found that I had been visiting Internet porn sites. She became very upset and said this was the same as having sex outside of marriage. This is something I’m not proud of and resolved not to do it again. Well, a few days back, in a moment of weakness, I typed in “nude beach.” She says this is the same as a porn site. I feel it isn’t, because it is a public beach. Seeing how much pain I caused my wife, I won’t go to that site again. However, I would like your opinion. Is this the same as adultery? — No Cheater Dear No Cheater: Deliberately searching out “nude beach” is a way to look for naked bodies without using the word “porn,” but the effect is similar. And while looking at naked bodies is not the same as adultery, it is still a betrayal if it hurts your wife and you have broken your promise to stop. And if you are interacting in real time with real women online, we would consider that a form of cheating. You seem to have a problem with pornography. If you cannot stay away from it, consider that you may have an addiction that requires treatment. Dear Annie: My husband is a control freak in a way that I do not understand. For example, he takes me shopping to purchase expensive jewelry that I do not want but that he insists I get. Recently, my dad moved close by. I told my husband I was going to visit Dad, and he became angry, stating that we don’t have the money to visit relatives. He said he would cancel the gas credit cards if I went. How should a sane person deal with this idiocy? — Confused in Connecticut Dear Confused: If this is recent behavior, please ask your husband to get a complete physical from his doctor. Sometimes there is a physical or neurological reason for a bizarre change in behavior. Otherwise, consider that your husband may be trying to isolate you, the mark of a potential abuser, and using the jewelry to assuage your concerns. The National Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline. org) at 1-800-799-7233 can help you sort it out. Dear Annie: I take issue with your response to “Tired of Rude Family in Carolina,”

whose inconsiderate sister and niece refuse to inform the hostess when they are bringing an additional guest (usually the niece’s boyfriend) to dinner. The uninvited boyfriend is probably unaware of these family dynamics. Why not seat him where the inconsiderate sister would have been, next to the niece, and put the sister on the piano bench with a paper plate? After a few times of putting the sister in the hot seat, she just might get it. — JM in Tennessee Dear J.M.: We think if the boyfriend is always being shoved into an extra chair, he is well aware of the difficulty his presence causes. However, you are absolutely right that the sister should take the hit. Read on: Dear Annie: If this sister brings an uninvited guest to dinner every time, it shouldn’t be a surprise. Just set an extra setting as a matter of course. For many people, there is a long held tradition of setting a place for Jesus. If someone extra shows up, they are welcomed, and that is the seat they are given. Dear Annie: I would set up a card table and put place settings of paper plates, plastic utensils and two chairs. When the “late sis” arrived, I would drape a towel over my arm and escort them to their “reserved table.” I’d put a candle in the middle, just for a little class. — Florida

Wizard of Id

ARIES (March 21 — April 19) You are likely to treat anyone and everyone as though they were your sweet beloved favorite. This is a charismatic tone to be sure, and you’ll attract followers along your way. TAURUS (April 20 — May 20) It may feel that much is riding on one particular relationship, and this is not a good position to be in for anyone involved. The pressure is palpable. Try to diversify if you can. GEMINI (May 21 — June 21) You’ll succeed if your results are consistent. In order to get consistent results, you will have to create systems that ensure them. Get help. Start with a proven method. CANCER (June 22 — July 22) What you’re doing is important and worthy of qualified help. Even if you think they will handle it appropriately, don’t pass an aspect of a project on to someone if that person doesn’t have a proven track record. LEO (July 23 — Aug. 22) Maybe you’re not in the mood for storytelling, but you will have to let people know a little more about you if you want them to relate to you properly and appropriately. VIRGO (Aug. 23 — Sept. 22) You find it easy to carry on a conversation now, and your social prospects continue to open up. New friends will be air signs, meaning Gemini, Libra or Aquarius. LIBRA (Sept. 23 — Oct. 23) Pressure comes in unpredictable spurts. There’s an easy way to handle your stress level, though. Practice the first three things you’ll do when the pressure is on, and you’ll always be ready. SCORPIO (Oct. 24 — Nov. 21) You have a strong need for variety, and so tasks that are too structured will not appeal to you. It will be better for you to say “no” fast than to say “maybe” and waffle. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 — Dec. 21) Perfection is not an acceptable standard to set for yourself. You will rise much more quickly to the level you wish to achieve if you strive for consistent improvement instead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 — Jan. 19) People want you to do well, and they are rooting for you to succeed. When you believe at a deep level that this is true, you will perform to the very best of your ability. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 — Feb. 18) No one is born harshly self-critical. It’s a learned response to the world, and if you can learn it, then you can unlearn it. Do what you can to sweeten the tone you use when you talk to yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19 — March 20) It’s no wonder your popularity keeps growing. You have a captivating way of expressing yourself even if the information you’re sharing is as simple as the weather. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Mar. 1) You deserve pleasure as much as anyone else, so give yourself permission to live the life you’d be happy to see your loved ones living. In March, you’ll dust off your hands and declare, “Mission accomplished!” A lively stretch for your personal life begins in April. Something you wish for a loved one will happen in May. Libra and Scorpio people adore you.

know what, we like this area, we’ve been here for a while, we’ve built some friendships,” Daniel said. “So we decided to stay out here. So then the next choice was where out here do we want to stay. The choices were either Abilene, Salina and Junction, and the fit for us in Junction made more sense.” But while sometimes entrepreneurs, such as Kendall, Meghan and Daniel, are able to choose where they set up shop, they often find themselves presented with an opportunity to seize. That’s what happened to Rico Steele, 34, owner of Rico Steele’s Martial Arts Academy, located at 121 E. Sixth St. — a building owned by Kendall’s father, Gery Schoenrock. “Junction City kind of picked me,” Rico said in an interview. Rico actually took over the business for a man who was running the gym while

it was still located on Grant Avenue. “Long story short,” Rico said, the previous owner was behind on rent, liability and business operations in general were falling to the wayside. The man offered to sell the business to Rico. Rico talked to his family at the time, telling them taking over the business would mean investing and staying in Junction City. His son was a major reason why Rico stayed in Junction City in the first place. “He’s 12 years old,” Rico said. “So, about the only reason I even stayed in Kansas — I got out of the military and I stayed here — was because he was here.” After speaking to family, the gym was soon Rico’s. The business wasn’t exactly what he’d been promised. “He told me it would come with 60 students,” Rico said. “It came with 10 paying students and 50 people that were free. I was like, ‘This is not going to work.’” So, Rico set out to establish a martial arts academy like Junction City had never

before seen. “I kind of looked at the demographic of Junction City,” he said. “I tried to research other martial arts schools that had been here and nobody had ever been here doing what I’m doing.” Rico Steele’s Martial Arts Academy now teaches Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai kickboxing and a special skills program for children. All three programs have taken off. “The way Muay Thai is going, the way Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is going, everybody’s looking for that these days,” Rico said. “But nope, that (wasn’t) here in Junction City,” he said. Not until now, that is. Rico’s success has allowed his academy to expand to its new location, which is in a much more prominent location. Last year, the Kansas Department of Commerce named the academy the Kansas Minority-Owned Business of the Year. Read more online at www.

and (begin to work),” he said. “That’s the only way we’re going to get out of this rut.” Later, he ran as the Democratic candidate for the second district. While running, there were doubters about his ability to win the seat. After the election, one individual came into his business and told Dozier he was sorry about him not winning, although he was victorious the previous night. “Number one, I didn’t lose,” Dozier said with a laugh about the awkward moment. “Number two, you couldn’t vote for me because you don’t live in my district.” During his time on the board, he was elected chairman several terms and would serve the county for 12 consecutive years. “I never faced a challenge that was racial,” Dozier said about his time on the board. “It was mainly because I stayed active.” He was very active in making sure youths were using their time constructively in the office, instead of labor work such as cutting grass. “They were not learning anything,” Dozier said. “If we’re going to do something, let’s make it constructive.” Prior to begin his role as county commissioner in 1972, Dozier served in the military for 20 years. He was inducted into the United States Army in 1942. A year later, he graduated from the Army/Air

Corps Adjutant General Basic Administration Course at Atlanta University (now Clark Atlanta University). He completed the Military Personnel Officer Course at Fort Benjamin in Harrison, Ind., in 1961. In 1964, he moved to the area and completed courses at K-State and owned an insurance agency on Grant Avenue. He also was a part-time contract instructor for computerization management. For close to 60 years, the Americus, Ga. native was married to Mary Lois, before she passed away. Together they had two children, Morris Dozier Jr. and Yolanda. Inside his home, he took a trip down memory lane and discussed the road to becoming county commissioner. “We’ve come a long way in some things and other things we’ve haven’t moved very well,” Dozier said. Dozier briefly mentioned some of the other people who followed in his footsteps in leadership positions. “I was really thrilled when Larry Hicks came back to the community and ran,” Dozier said. Hicks, the current county commission chair, noted Dozier has been a mentor, and appreciated his decision to become a trailblazer. “Mr. Dozier is someone I have a lot of respect and admiration for,” he said. “Not only did he served his country as an officer for his nation, but he also served Geary County. Those days were challenging for most African-Americans trying to take office.”

below budget,” Walker said. “I think it’s one of the better programs that we see out there.” Walker said the district likes to produce projects on time and under budget. “I just have to have projects on time and they have to be within the budget,” Walker said. Walker said the district has used the process for about five years for projects totaling more than $140 million. “They’ve all been on time and they have been right at or under budget,” Walker said. If approved, the building could open by August 2015. “That’s been the goal and that’s when we want to have it open,” Walker said. Walker reported the closing of Custer Hill Elementary School topic was removed from the agenda. The board recently held a Feb. 24 work session and discussed the matter with district leaders. “That wasn’t enough time to complete a good analysis,” Walker said. “So we decided to withdraw it from the agenda for right now and do our due diligence by meeting with families.” The district recently held meetings with community members and staff members, but Walker wants to reach out to more individuals. “We want to make sure we touch everybody that we can,” Walker said. “That way we can come back with a really good assessment and make a decision that way,” Walker said. Reasons for closing Custer Hill Elementary School involve the facilities condition and usability. “Right now we’re looking at basic finances for the most part and how maintaining that school would impact our finances versus closing it,” Walker said. “We’ll provide the board with our best recommendation and they’ll make their best decision.”

Blue Jays can’t complete rally against Shawnee Heights, falling 55-49
After a disastrous first quarter where the Junction City boys basketball team only scored three points, the team knew something needed to change. And it did. Midway through the second quarter, the Blue Jays showed just how dangerous they can be. Junction City unleashed a barrage of 3-point shots, capped off by a buzzer-beater by senior Jake Adkins from three steps outside the arc. The ball connected with the backboard before careening down through the net. Junction City still faced a 23-14 deficit at the half, but it gave the team enough momentum. However, in the end, the Blue Jays did not have enough in the tank, losing 55-49. “I don’t think they were big, they were just motivational shots,” senior Jonathan Wilds said of the team sinking shots from downtown. “They were big but the main thing is motivational. You hit the shot, you’re eager now to defend better. You’re also eager to put the ball in the bucket and now you have confidence in yourself and in your teammates.” Wilds drilled a pair of shots from deep in the fourth period as Junction City desperately clawed its way back into the game. Junior Tanner Lueker then sank a shot and followed it up with a steal. He was fouled hard on his way up for the layup, but made both free throws, bringing Junction City within one possession, 51-49 in the final minutes. Then, Shawnee Heights desperately heaved the ball down court to try and break the press. Wilds leapt up to pick it out of the air, but came up just short and was whistled for the foul. Shawnee Heights’ Tevin Downing converted both free throws and the Blue Jays couldn’t come within one possession again. “Personally, I think I didn’t do anything,” Wilds said. “I felt the ball and then I felt a piece of his hair so I guess the refs saw it differently.

The Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with running back Jackie Battle. The Titans announced the deal Friday. Terms weren’t disclosed. Battle rushed for 142 yards and one touchdown on 36 carries for the Titans in 2013. He also made 10 special-teams tackles. Battle was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 11. The 30-year-old Battle entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent from Houston in 2007. He played with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2007-11 and was with the San Diego Chargers in 2012. He has rushed for 1,168 yards and eight touchdowns in 80 career NFL games.

NCAA Basketball

Iowa State addressed its lack of experience at point guard with senior transfer DeAndre Kane. It turned out that the kid coach Fred Hoiberg recruited for the job was ready for it all along. Freshman Monte Morris has become indispensable for the 15th-ranked Cyclones (22-5, 10-5 Big 12), largely because he’s better at protecting the basketball than anyone in the country. Morris has 101 assists against just 17 turnovers this season. He’s on pace to shatter the NCAA’s assist-to-turnover ratio record of 3.96-to-1 set by Tyler Newbold of Utah State in 2009. Iowa State, which has won seven of eight since making Morris a starter, faces Kansas State (19-9, 9-6) on Saturday.

Derek Wolfe says he’s finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. In an interview outside his home with Denver television stations KCNC and KMGH this week, the Broncos’ defensive lineman said he’s back up to 280 pounds, having regained 20 of the 30 pounds he lost last season, and will resume training next week. Wolfe was sidelined for 10 days in August after his arms and legs went numb following a hit in a preseason game at Seattle on Aug. 17. He was cleared in time for the opener against Baltimore. Then, on a bus ride to the airport for a flight to Kansas City on Nov. 29, Wolfe suffered a seizure and was taken to University Hospital in Denver.

No. 6 Duke beats Virginia Tech 66-48

Associated Press
DURHAM, N.C. — Duke can finally take a breather. Rodney Hood scored 21 points to help the sixth-ranked Blue Devils beat Virginia Tech 66-48 on Tuesday night, a game that followed a demanding stretch that included games against their fiercest rival and the nation’s topranked team in a span of about 48 hours. Duke (23-6, 12-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) completed a stretch of five games in 11 days by beating the last-place Hokies (9-18, 2-13). “We need to get away a little bit,” coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “We need to review our stuff instead of always planning for someone else’s stuff.” The Blue Devils fought to the final second to hold off Maryland on Feb. 15, then traveled to Georgia Tech before losing the weather-delayed rivalry game at North Carolina. Two nights later, they held off then-No. 1 Syracuse at home, then returned once more to Cameron Indoor Stadium to beat Virginia Tech in what Krzyzewski called “a grueling stretch.” “It’s kind of like — I don’t know if you do this — getting that last bit out,” Krzyzewski said. “Even though you’ve got two full containers, you’re going to get that last little bit. Today was kind of, let’s get it out there.” Duke doesn’t play again until next Wednesday’s trip to Wake Forest, followed by the regular-season finale against UNC at Cameron Indoor Stadium on March 8. The Blue Devils have won 32 straight home games, the longest streak in the nation. “Probably everybody in the back of their minds was looking forward to (the break),” sophomore Rasheed Sulaimon said, “but at the same time we knew we had to take care of business.” Hood said the coaches didn’t let the players ease into this one, jumping on them about a sluggish pregame shootaround. The Blue Devils responded by running out to a 24-4 lead midway through the first half, though they struggled to land a game-finishing blow. “We started to warm up and we came back in and they got us pretty good because we didn’t look like we were ready to go out there and fight,” Hood said. “I mean, we’ve got to be prepared for that. The ACC tournament, you can play three or four games in three or four days so there’s no excuse for us. I think it’s taxing on us, but we’ve got to be ready and get rejuvenated for next week.” The win, along with Clemson’s loss at Wake Forest, helped secure some extra rest for the Blue Devils. They are assured a top-four seed in Greensboro and the doubleround bye that comes with it. Sulaimon scored 15 points for the Blue Devils, who shot 39 percent and went 10 for 33 from 3-point range — well below their ACC-leading 40.7 percent from behind the arc. Freshman Trevor Thompson matched his season-high with 15 points for Virginia Tech, which has won once since the start of the calendar year. The injury-depleted Hokies have failed to reach 60 points in 10 of those 14 games.

Backes and his wife, Kelly, rescued the dogs from the streets of the Olympic city with members of the Canadian team’s entourage. Now in quarantine in St. Louis, the dogs will eventually be given to good homes. Backes said he and his wife did not originally intend to bring any animals back. They were hoping to create awareness about shelters that have been set up in Sochi to help hundreds of stray dogs that received international media attention.

Shields has perfect inning; Royals top Texas 11-1
Associated Press
SURPRISE, Ariz. — James Shields threw a perfect inning and Mike Moustakas drove in three runs as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Texas Rangers 11-1 on Friday. Shields, who can become a free agent after this season, needed only 10 pitches to get three quick groundouts. “For me, it’s the ups and downs, it’s what you’ve got to get used to as a starter,” Shields said. “You heat up and cool down, heat up and cool down. We don’t practice that.” “The pitches don’t really matter as much. I went to the bullpen and threw an extra 20 pitches to get my pitch count up. It’s all about pacing yourself,” he said. Shields said in his next outing he would probably throw 45 pitches and three innings. Moustakas, who batted only .233 with 42 RBIs last year, hit a two-run double in the second inning off Alexi Ogando and a RBI single off Jose Contreras in the third. “It’s just spring and we’re working on some stuff to iron some things out,” Moustakas said. “The results are second right now in spring training, although it’s always good to have them. It’s a little bit of a confidence boost. The work is translating right now from out early in the mornings to the games.” The Royals got 16 hits. Billy Butler went 3 for 3 and Alex Gordon and Norichika Aoki each singled and doubled. Aoki also walked and reached on shortstop Elvis Andrus’ throwing error. “That’s who Aoki is,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “He’s a real consistent performer.” The Rangers managed just six singles off seven Kansas City pitchers. STARTING TIME Rangers: Ogando, who was on the disabled list three times last season, gave up


two runs on four hits in two innings. He threw 19 strikes in 34 pitches, striking out one and walking none. “I got behind the count to a lot of the hitters,” Ogando said through a translator. “That’s something I’ll take into the next outing. I’m happy with this being the first outing. I’m healthy and that’s what is most important.” Royals: Left-hander Jason Vargas, a free agent signed to a four-year $32 million contract in November, will make his first start Saturday against San Diego. TRAINER’S ROOM Rangers: Right-hander Nick Tepesch, who had been set back with back tightness, reported no issues after throwing batting practice. He is scheduled to pitch two innings Monday. ... Second baseman Jurickson Profar, who has shoulder tendinitis, continues to progress in his throwing program. Royals: Reliever Louis Coleman is being held out of early exhibition games after bruising a finger in fielding practice. He is throwing bullpens, but the club is being cautious. KIDDING AROUND Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar left to be with wife Francys, who is expecting the couple’s first child on Saturday. Rookie Christian Colon, the fourth overall pick in the 2010 draft, replaced Escobar at shortstop and contributed a two-run single. TOUGH OUTING The 42-year-old Contreras, a non-roster invitee to camp, gave up four runs on six hits in the third inning. Contreras missed most of the 2011-12 seasons after a pair of elbow surgeries, and pitched five innings last year for Pittsburgh. The Rangers have had just three players 42 or older appear in a regular-season game — Nolan Ryan, Charlie Hough and Omar Vizquel.

Rejuvenated Smart ends Oklahoma St skid

Associated Press
STILLWATER, Okla. — Marcus Smart has calmed down, perhaps in time to save Oklahoma State’s season. The dynamic point guard has been dominant since returning from a threegame suspension for shoving a fan at Texas Tech. In wins over the Red Raiders and TCU, he displayed a new sense of calm while averaging 16.5 points, 8.5 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 5.5 steals. The Cowboys (18-10, 6-9 Big 12) have bounced back from a seven-game losing streak and can strengthen their once-fading NCAA tournament hopes with a win Saturday at home against No. 5 Kansas. At times before his suspension, Smart pressed to score while he was in a slump, and his misses led to frustration that boiled over and cost his team. He has learned that his demeanor affects his teammates. “The more fun and relaxed I can be, the more fun and relaxed this team’s going to be,” he said. Coach Travis Ford said the Cowboys are playing their best team ball in a long time, and Smart’s new approach and renewed focus are the main reasons. “I think the last two games, he’s played the way that’s made him one of the best players in America, and that’s as far as if you look across the stat sheet, there’s a lot of big numbers,” Ford said. “When he’s doing that, obviously, that makes him great and it makes our team a lot better.” The Jayhawks (22-6, 13-2) already have clinched a share of the Big 12 title and can claim it outright on Saturday. Their success makes Saturday’s game an ideal test for the Cowboys to see if they truly are back on track. The Cowboys have the Jayhawks’ attention. Last season, they ended Kansas’ 33-game home win streak, and Smart celebrated by doing a backflip. This season, in Lawrence, Kansas led by 17 at halftime, then

held on to win 80-78 in a game that featured pushing, shoving and numerous technical fouls. “I think the motivation is it’s Oklahoma State, and we’ve kind of developed a pretty good rivalry with them,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “The last three games have been really close, last-possession-type games.” Kansas features Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins, freshmen who could be top picks in this year’s NBA draft. Wiggins averages 16.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. Embiid averages 11.1 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.6 blocks. Embiid, a 7-foot, 250pound center from Cameroon, had 13 points, 11 rebounds and eight blocks in the first meeting. “He made some nice blocks, and he’s got great timing,” Ford said of Embiid’s play in the first meeting. “You know he’s in there. You know he’s in there.” Oklahoma State counters with Smart, a preseason All-American who averages 17.4 points and 5.6 rebounds. Markel Brown averages 16.8 points and 5.5 rebounds and Le’Bryan Nash averages 14.4 points and 5.8 rebounds. Oklahoma State has moved guard Phil Forte into the starting lineup, and the sophomore has flourished since Smart’s return. In the past two games, he’s averaged 21.5 points and made half of his 18 3-point shots. In the first game against Kansas, Forte came off the bench and scored 21 points. “One reason why they’re playing better is because he’s played well, and he plays better whenever Marcus is in the game with him,” Self said. “I do think that he’s (Forte) tough to guard. He stretches the defense and really allows driving opportunities for some of the other guys because you can’t leave him.” Now that the Cowboys have put their distractions behind them and have returned to their winning ways, they feel the vibe has returned to the way it was when they won 15 of their first 17 games. “You can tell that everybody’s enjoying themselves a little bit better now,” Smart said. “Everybody’s lightened up. We’re not putting as much stress on each other. We’re just going out there and having fun.”

wrong foot so I couldn’t get enough lift to get the ball.” Junction City’s early offensive woes stemmed from trying to keep up with the Thunderbirds’ frantic pace instead of working the open shot. The team wasn’t utilizing its chances with the precision coach Pat Battle wanted. “That’s another team like Topeka West that’s normally in the high 60s, 70s, so I think we did a great job defensively,” he said. “The biggest issue we had offensively was the pace got to us too early and we took too quick of shots. Our shot selection wasn’t very good from the get-go, but as we settled in, I thought we did a much better job and the pace was better in the second, third and fourth quarter.” Wilds led the Blue Jays with 13 points and Lueker netted 11. Senior Semaj Johnson added eight points of his own. Junction City (6-14) opens up substate play on Thursday. Battle believes his team will be able to compete with anyone as long as its stout defense comes ready to play. “We’ve played our best basketball (this past week),” he said. “If you go to the second half of Topeka High, we started to figure out things and then Topeka West was a complete game and then tonight was a complete defensive game. We made some mistakes offensively early and a few defensive mistakes too.”

lee fouled out, that was the dagger.” Rains totaled 10 points before committing her fifth foul. Sophomore Darja Russell scored eight in the contest. Shawnee Heights converted its opportunities from the free-throw line to stretch the lead out as the game clock wound down. “We got a little lazy on defense,” Parks said. “And they started making us pay by getting to the free-throw line and we weren’t knocking down shots when we needed to in order to make sure we closed the game.” Junction City wraps up the regular season with a 5-15 record. Despite the loss, Parks thinks his team is starting to play its best basketball of the season. The Blue Jays won two of their last three games. Junction City opens substate play at Washburn Rural on Wednesday. “I think we’re ready,” Kamm said. “We play Washburn at substate and it will definitely be a good matchup. It’s a challenge, but it will be one we can win if we put all our effort toward it.”

LIFE Week in review
A group of rainforest animals caused quite a stir at Ware Elementary School. Melissa Fugit, of Wildlife Wonders, made a presentation Feb. 21 to the students. The purpose is to help educate audiences about life in the rainforest. “It shows the kids what things are like outside their world,” Fugit said. Some of the animals showcased during the event included the Madagascar hissing cockroach, a tarantula and the blue-and-gold Macaw. Along with animal presentations, Wildlife Wonders also showcases products from rainforests around the world. According to their website, officials said “We promote awareness and enthusiasm for wildlife conservation education, both at the grass roots community level and on a national scale.”

Quivira cabin reminder of early 20th century T
he museum recently received a very nice pen and ink drawing of the Quivira cabin in memory of Harold Rohrer, a lifelong Geary County resident, by his son Hugh Rohrer M.D. On the back of the drawing is an article from the Daily Journal of Oct. 12, 1936, which gives the history of the cabin. Many old-time residents of Geary County remember the cabin was located in Logan’s Grove just outside Junction City. This area was believed to be a Native American camping ground. It became a popular stopping place for travelers to rest and learn a little history about the area. According to the Daily Journal article, the sign “Quivira” was mounted over the door by the landowner, Robert Henderson, and archaeologist J.V. Brower. They believed the grove was the northern boundary of the land occupied by the Quivira tribe. The log cabin was most likely built by a trapper or hunter wintering in this area. An article from the June 3, 1920 Union newspaper claims it is the first cabin built in this area. In 1853, a Mr. Shivvers discovered it while out hunting. Acquiring “squatter’s

Museum Musings rights” to the cabin, he sold it two years later to Captain Henderson. After being discharged from the Army, Henderson and his bride made it home until they later built a home in town. At different times the cabin has served the area “as a fort, a church, a schoolhouse, a political meeting place, a mortuary and a residence.” The grove is named after General John A. Logan, who was a close personal friend of Henderson’s. Many local residents remember a granite monument erected on the property in 1902 to honor the Quivira Historical Society. This monument was later moved to Coronado Park. J.V. Brower was the president of the society. His discoveries of artifacts at the site led him to claim that Francisco Vasquex de Coronado reached the junction of

the Smokey and Republican rivers and actually camped at the site of Logan’s Grove. Burial sites believed to be Native American were also found by the two of the Henderson boys on a hilltop near the site. In 1935 the property was bought by the Earl C. Gormley Post 45 of the American Legion for the purpose of preserving the historic landmark. The site was for many years used as a picnic place and a general get-together place for social events. This pen and ink drawing is a wonderful addition to our collection, especially since the cabin is no longer standing after being demolished by the 1951 flood. As we researched it further, we learned it has even more intrinsic value, because it was done by a Kansas artist by the name of Margaret Whittmore. Margaret was born in Topeka on Sept. 7, 1897. She graduated from Washburn University in 1919, and later studied graphic arts at the Art Institute of Chicago and Taos Art Colony in New Mexico. Margaret was very talented and went on to have careers as a writer, graphic artist, illustrator, and block printer. At one time she worked as an artist in the Works

Progress Administration museum extension program. One of her projects was to create a series of prints depicting Kansas landmarks. Her diverse skills led to work in a variety of different jobs. At one time she worked as a drafter for the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. Her love of Kansas led her to publish a series of sketches of early Kansas landmarks in Sunday issues of the 1936 Topeka Daily Capital. She would publish accompanying histories of the landmarks.

Later she would publish the book, “Historic Kansas: A Centenary Sketchbook.” She must have had a love of books because she worked for libraries in Clay Center, Wichita, and Topeka. She also worked for the University of Kansas and the Kansas Historical Society. In 1952 she moved from Topeka to Kissimmee, Fla. She passed away in Sarasota, Fla. on Nov. 24, 1983.

The Quivira cabin was a local landmark in Geary County until the 1950s.

A cold hard winter means fewer insects, right? T
here is a long-held belief that a good hard winter is essential to killing overwintering insects, thereby reducing the number of insects that will be present to bother us the following spring and summer. While the theory sounds good, and to a limited extent is true, in reality it just doesn’t hold up. Sorry! How insects survive, so they are around from one year to the next, is complex and fascinating. Some do overwinter as adults. This would include species like box elder bugs, lady beetles and mosquitoes, to name a few. Other insects overwinter as a pupae or a cocoon such as many butterflies and moths, and many beetle species. Others, like the wheel bug and grasshoppers, overwinter as eggs. Amazingly, some species can only overwinter in warmer climates to the south. They repopulate by moving back in as winged adults once the weather warms in the spring or even summer. Monarch butterflies are a classic example. They migrate south in the fall, overwintering in remote mountain areas of Mexico, and fly back north in the spring, some as far north as Canada. Several species of dragonflies also migrate south. Several aphid species don’t migrate, but those that are this far north freeze out over winter and have to fly or be blown back in from southern areas. How quick these species repopulate in the spring depends on how far south the cold weather killed them back the previous winter. Species that overwinter as eggs are usually very winter hardy.


The Daily Union. Saturday, March 1, 2014

Field & Garden The eggs exist in tough shells, often in egg clusters. Grasshopper eggs are laid in the ground and if the ground is undisturbed, they can freeze over winter and still hatch out just fine. We know that fall tillage, that breaks up these egg cases and exposes them to weather and predators, can be effective in reducing their population. Praying mantids lay very tough and resilient egg cases on tree bark, sides of buildings, or almost anywhere they can. If left alone, these will survive just fine

to hatch in spring. An early warm spell can trigger these eggs to start to hatch earlier than normal thereby making the eggs or young insects very vulnerable to a late cold snap. Likewise, insects that overwinter as a cocoon or pupae are also very tough. They have excellent internal antifreeze and seem to come through our winters in excellent shape. Insects that are designed to overwinter in our climates aren’t really negatively affected by a long cold winter. They go dormant, they stay dormant, they come out of dormancy or emerge from the pupae, and are ready to go. Where these insects can run into trouble is when we have a variable winter. Regular warmups, which have been few this winter, cause the insects to start to come out of hibernation. This

uses up body food reserves. When it cools back down, they go back into hibernation. Then it warms up again and they start to come out of hibernation, using up even more food reserves. If this warming and cooling continues through several cycles, the insects can use up all their food reserves and ultimately die before it warms up for good in the spring. It doesn’t appear this is going to happen this year! A cold winter is a good thing in several ways. It does insure insects that shouldn’t overwinter here, don’t. But unfortunately, a long cold winter doesn’t usually reduce insect populations as much as we wish it would.

How to enhance relationships to make them work for everyone I
remember when my in-laws came upon their 50th anniversary, they fervently declined the request from their children to host a celebration of the event. Being modest and humble rural folk, they didn’t want to draw any attention to themselves or create a burden to their children by hosting a reception. I made a special trip to their home to talk to them about it. My own parents, happily married for 30 years until dad’s death at the age of 52, did not have the opportunity to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Throughout their marriage, I knew my mom and dad faced every challenge as best friends, and I knew this was a key part of the success for my in-laws as well. They had reached that 50-year benchmark and I wanted to encourage them to share their success with not only those who cared about them, but those who looked up to them in our community. “The three great essentials to achieve anything worthwhile are hard work, stickto-itiveness, and common sense.” This quote by Thomas Edison sheds light on the important ingredients for successful relationships. Any meaningful relationship in our life is the result of hard work. We have to be willing to persevere through a variety of challenges and use our common sense in being intentional about maintaining the strength and quality of those relationships. They don’t just happen. In her publication, “PeopleTALK: Enhancing Your Relationships,” Dr. Charlotte Shoup Olsen, Extension Specialist with K-State Research and Extension, offers insights on what it takes to sustain a long-term relationship (be it friendship, marriage, or both.) She writes:

Living Resourcefully “People often think that being married for a long time, or having a life-long friend, means little effort and work goes into that relationship. Whether you realize it or not, meaningful relationships require continual attention. ‘Strong friendships’ are important in our lives, and they are especially important in marriages and intimate relationships. However, keeping a friendship going in a marriage — or with another family member — can sometimes be more difficult and take more time and attention than with a friend. Here are some suggestions: Share everyday happenings with each other. When you talk to a friend in person, on the phone, or through an e-mail message, you may share and listen to each other about the small details of what’s happening in your individual lives and how you are feeling about it. The same thing needs to happen in a marriage and with other family members who are close to you. Couples who have lived together for many years may think they know everything there is to know about the other person. However, we are constantly growing and changing, and our reactions to what is happening around us change, too. Unless that is continually shared, a

spouse may have no idea a change in the other partner has occurred. Young couples who have an active and growing family can run into the same problem, thinking they don’t have time to share and spend time with their partner. That can be dangerous to a marriage, as they may find themselves growing apart and not turning to each other when challenges arise. Having a deep friendship helps us turn toward — rather than away from — a special person during both good and bad times. That is important for long and enduring relationships. Listen attentively. Sometimes, people have to consciously practice how to communicate with another person with whom they want to build or maintain a good relationship. Listening is often more difficult than talking. What are some ways to truly listen to another person who is speaking? Focus on that person by: a) Maintaining eye contact in a manner that is culturally appropriate for you; b) Leaning forward; c) Making non-verbal gestures like nodding your head; d) Giving simple and positive responses; e) Not interrupting even when you disagree or have something to share; f) Showing positive expressions, such as reaching out and gently touching the other person on the arm in a non-invasive, comfortable and supportive way. The second part of listening is making sure you understand the message correctly. Simply say to the other person, “Now, let me tell you what I heard you saying, … Am I correct?” If not, the speaker can repeat the message with different words until the listener has correctly understood the message and the feelings attached to the message. This is not easy to do if you

disagree with the messages you heard. It takes patience and determination to hold your opinion until you reverse roles and have the opportunity to be heard. Show fondness and admiration. It is sometimes much easier to criticize and find fault, rather than recognize positive qualities about the special people in your life, especially family members. John Gottman, from the University of Washington, has studied couples for many years to find out what makes marriages work or end in divorce. He found that expressing fondness, encouragement, and admiration toward each other — often in small and unexpected ways — goes a long way in maintaining strong marital relationships. To use this idea with other important people in your life, it may be as simple as thanking your adult daughter for stopping by to see you or giving her an unexpected hug. Gottman says good relationships are maintained when there are five positive interactions for every one negative interaction, a 5:1 ratio.” Developing and maintaining a long-lasting relationship indeed takes hard work, perseverance, and common sense. Having those types of relationships in our lives makes each day worthwhile and adds to our quality of life. For more tips on enhancing relationships, contact me at the Geary County Extension office at (785) 238-4161 or access the full publication by Dr. Shoup Olson under the Home and Family tab on our website, Until next time, keep living resourcefully!

New York City teen helps scientists study her own rare disease

AP Medical Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) — First the teenager survived a rare cancer. Then she wanted to study it, spurring a study that helped scientists find a weird gene flaw that might play a role in how the tumor strikes. Age 18 is pretty young to be listed as an author of a study in the prestigious journal Science. But the industrious high school student’s efforts are bringing new attention to this mysterious disease. “It’s crazy that I’ve been able to do this,” said Elana Simon of New York City, describing her idea to study the extremely rare form of liver cancer that mostly hits adolescents and young adults. Making that idea work required a lot of help from real scientists: Her father, who runs a cellular biophysics lab at the Rockefeller University; her surgeon at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and gene specialists at the New York Genome Center. A second survivor of this cancer, who the journal said didn’t want to be identified, also co-authored the study. Together, the team reported Thursday that they uncovered an oddity: A break in genetic material that left the “head” of one gene fused to the “body” of another. That results in an abnormal protein that forms inside the tumors but not in normal liver tissue, suggesting it might

fuel cancer growth, the researchers wrote. They’ve found the evidence in all 15 of the tumors tested so far. It’s a small study, and more research is needed to see what this gene flaw really does, cautioned Dr. Sanford Simon, the teen’s father and the study’s senior author. But the teen-spurred project has grown into work to get more patients involved in scientific research. Scientists at the

National Institutes of effective treatment, and her Health are advising the tumor was caught in time Simons on how to set up a that it worked.

Only about 200 people a year worldwide are diagnosed, according to the Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation, which helped fund the new study. There was no registry that kept tissue samples after surgery. But Simon’s pediatric cancer surgeon, Sloan-Kettering’s Dr. Michael LaQuaglia, agreed

to help, and Simon spread the word to patient groups. Finally, samples trickled in, and Sanford Simon said his daughter was back on the computer helping to analyze what was different in the tumor cells. At the collaborating New York Genome Center, which genetically mapped the samples, co-author Nicolas Robine said a program called FusionCatcher ultimately zeroed in on the weird mutation.

Library has its sights set on annual summer reading program
Librarian’s report Per the operating policy, the borrowing privileges of new patrons are limited for the first 30 days to a maximum total checkout of two items. In addition, they are also limited to in-house use of titles borrowed from other libraries via interlibrary loan. Setting up cards now will help ensure borrowers have full privileges and few limitations when the summer programs begin. Now is also a good time for patrons who have lost track of their current cards to apply for a replacement. These are issued for a fee of $1, along with any outstanding charges that may be attached to the card for lost or late items. Once all payments have been made, the replacement card will be issued with full borrowing privileges. Patrons who have outstanding charges attached to their cards as well as to those belonging to their dependents are also encouraged to drop by to talk about establishing a payment plan to clear them. The library offers the option of dividing payments into three monthly installments and a plan that begins in March could see its last payment take place in May and just in time to restore full privileges by the launch of Summer Reading. In addition to borrowing privileges, up-to-date payment records will also ensure patrons can take advantage of the public computing services available at the library. This includes the eight workstations designated for children and the 12 located in the adult reference area. Each offers Internet and other web-based services and office products. Patrons who want to point, click, page and bookmark their way through the summer are encouraged to call the library today to make sure their way is clear to do so. Though the days are becoming longer, they will still pass quickly and the countdown is on for the sunny season and the annual reading programs at the library.

1. “Super Shred” by Ian K. Smith (St. Martin’s Press) 2. “Killing Jesus” by Bill O’Reilly, Martin Dugard (Henry Holt) 3. “Duty” by Robert M. Gates (Knopf) 4. “David and Goliath” by Malcolm Gladwell (Little, Brown) 5. “Things That Matter” by Charles Krauthammer (Crown Forum) 6. “Grain Brain” by David Perlmutter (Little, Brown) 7. “The Body Book” by Cameron Diaz (Harper Wave) 8. “The Virgin Diet Cookbook” by J.J. Virgin (Grand Central Publishing) 9. “The Daniel Plan” by Rick Warren (Zondervan) 10. “The Daniel Plan Cookbook” by Rick Warren (Zondervan) 11. “George Washington’s Secret Six” by Brian Kilmeade (Sentinel) 12. “The Sixth Extinction” by Elizabeth Kolbert (Henry Holt)


hile snow is still on the minds of many, the library has a bad case of summer fever. The staff at the Dorothy Bramlage Public Library is busy making preparations for the 2014 summer reading programs, and now would be a great time for patrons to do the same. This includes checking their records to make sure that they are clear and ready for borrowing when the summer programs begin. Summer Reading is a reading-incentive program where prizes, programs and more are offered to patrons of all ages to recognize the books, audiobooks and ebooks they enjoy during the course of the program. For students of all ages, this is an excellent way to preserve the skills they have built during the school year and to ensure they are up to speed and ready to learn when the new semester begins. When a book has been checked out and read, it will be recorded on the summer reading chart each participant will have. This includes those charts maintained by pen and paper as well as those recorded online. When a goal has been reached, the chart will be annotated and prizes will be awarded. To prepare for this, those who do not yet have a library card or who are not sure whether their old card is still active are welcome to call the library at (785) 238-4311 and speak to the circulation staff. They will be happy to check the database to see if a record exists and to note if it is clear and ready to use. For patrons who do not have a current active card, now is the perfect time to establish that service.

Israel donates Anne Frank books to Tokyo libraries
By the Associated Press
TOKYO (AP) — The Israeli Embassy has donated 300 Anne Frank-related books to Tokyo public libraries to replace those that have been vandalized. Representatives from the embassy and Japan’s Jewish community handed over the books Thursday to the mayor of Tokyo’s Suginami ward. More than 300 books related to Anne Frank, including copies of “The Diary of a Young Girl,” have been found damaged in Tokyo libraries, according to the latest tally. Suginami was particularly hard hit, with 121 books vandalized. The donated books will be divided among Tokyo libraries. The mayor of Suginami, Ryo Tanaka, expressed hope earlier this week that the incident could be turned into a lesson for Japanese who are not aware of the Holocaust.

Mormon church refutes planet theory Married man to

ting my own planet,” he bellows, and later, “I believe that God lives on a planet called Kolob.” People commonly latch on to the most outrageous or unique aspects of religions, such as Amish people using horse and buggy, and that’s how the perception of Mormons inheriting their own planets became widespread, Givens said. The series of postings, as well as the church’s opening of its archive, shows a natural progression for a religion that is younger than other major worldwide faiths, Givens said. The church was founded in 1830 and took more than a century to hit 1 million members. Today, there are 15 million Mormons worldwide. “Many of these things can be unsettling to members who have grown up with a typically manicured narrative, but it’s a necessary part of the maturation for the church membership,” Givens said. The intent of the articles is to give Mormons and non-Mormons definitive places to go to study or learn about doctrinal issues. That could happen eventually but church leaders need to make people aware of them, said Armand Mauss, a retired professor of sociology and religious studies at Washington State University. And he said the article won’t put an end to misconceptions held by some about Mormons. “For devout members of other Christian denominations, especially those of the Evangelical variety, this statement will confirm their existing claims of outrageous Mormon heresies where doctrines of deity are concerned,” Mauss said. B Y JIM SALTER


SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Mormon Church is pushing back against the notion that members of the faith are taught they’ll get their own planet in the afterlife, a misconception popularized in pop culture most recently by the Broadway show “The Book of Mormon.” A newly-posted article affirms the faith’s belief that humans can become like God in eternity, but says the “cartoonish image of people receiving their own planets” is not how members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints envision it. “While few Latter-day Saints would identify with caricatures of having their own planet, most would agree that the awe inspired by creation hints at our creative potential in the eternities,” the article says. The expectation of exaltation is more figurative and ambiguous than boiling it down to living on one planet, it says. “Church members imagine exaltation less through images of what they will get and more through the relationships they have now and how those relationships might be purified and elevated,” the article says. The 3,500-word article is part of a series of recent online pieces posted on the church website that explain, expand or clarify on some of the more sensitive gospel topics. Past articles have addressed the faith’s past ban on black men in the lay clergy and the early history of polygamy. The series of postings have been applauded by

In this Jan. 29, 2013, file photo, the angel Moroni statue, silhouetted against a cloud-covered sky, sits atop the Salt Lake Temple in Temple Square in Salt Lake City. A newly-posted article, part of a series of recent online articles posted on the website of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, affirms the faith’s belief that humans can become like God in eternity, but explains that the “cartoonish image of people receiving their own planets” is not how the religion envisions it.
religious scholars who say the church is finally acknowledging some of the most controversial or sensitive parts of its history and doctrine that it once sidestepped. “The church has become fully aware that scholarship and history is a double edge sword,” said Terryl Givens, professor of literature and religion and the James Bostwick Chair of English at the University of Richmond. “They can work in the church’s favor, but they can also be unsettling.” The new article, entitled “Becoming Like God,” doesn’t mention Kolob, referred to in the Book of Abraham as a planet or star closest to the throne of God. Kolob is mentioned in a Mormon hymn, but interpretations that it is the planet where God lives, or the place where church members will go when they die, read a great deal into an obscure verse in Mormon scripture, said Matthew Bowman, assistant professor of religion at Hampden-Sydney College. “I’m not surprised it’s not mentioned,” Bowman said. “Even most Mormons aren’t sure what exactly to make of the reference,” he said. Kolob is believed to be the inspiration for the name of the planet, “Kobol,” in the science fiction TV series “Battlestar Galactica,” which was created by a Mormon. Kolob is also mentioned in the Broadway show “The Book of Mormon” when a fictional Mormon missionary sings about all the things he believes as a church member. “I believe that God has a plan for all of us. I believe that plan involved me get-

ST. LOUIS (AP) — When Deacon Wissam Akiki is ordained as a Maronite Catholic priest Thursday night in St. Louis, he’s expected to have hundreds of supporters there for him, including his wife and daughter. For the first time in nearly a century, the Maronite Catholic Church in the United States is ordaining a married priest in a ceremony at the ornate St. Raymond’s Maronite Cathedral near downtown St. Louis. Akiki was in retreat before Thursday’s ceremony and unavailable for an interview. Eastern Catholic churches in the Middle East and Europe ordain married men. However, the Vatican banned the practice in America in the 1920s after Latinrite bishops complained it was confusing for parishioners. But Pope John Paul II called for greater acceptance of Eastern Catholic traditions. And over the years, popes have made exceptions on a case-by-case basis for married men to become Eastern Catholic priests in America. “Almost half of our priests in Lebanon are married, so it’s not an unusual event in the life of the Maronite Church, though in the United States it is,” Deacon Louis Peters, chancellor at St. Raymond’s, said Thursday. Pope Francis gave permission for Akiki to be ordained. Maronites are among more than a dozen Eastern Catholic church groups in the United States. Eastern Catholics accept the authority of the pope, but have many of their own rituals and liturgy. Peters said the pope’s action does not lift the ban on married priests in the U.S. It is simply an exception. Whether the decision would open the door for more married priests wasn’t clear. Experts cautioned against reading too much into it. “This is certainly not an automatic indication that the mandate of celibacy within Roman rite will be overturned,” said Randy Rosenberg, a theological studies professor at Saint Louis University. Akiki, 41, completed seminary studies at Holy Spirit University in Lebanon, Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Seminary in Washington, D.C., and the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis. He has been a deacon at St. Raymond’s since 2009 and worked as the assistant to the bishop. He and his wife, Manal Kassab, have one daughter, Perla, 8. Peters said that in the most recent Maronite Patriarchal Synod, the church reaffirmed its position in support of allowing married priests, a tradition that, worldwide, dates back centuries.

Death of Kentucky snake handler doesn’t shake believers

Associated Press
Three days after pastor Jamie Coots died from a rattlesnake bite at church, mourners leaving the funeral went to the church to handle snakes. Coots, who appeared on the National Geographic Channel’s “Snake Salvation,” pastored the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name church founded by his grandfather in Middlesboro, Ky.

The third-generation snake handler was bitten during a service on Feb. 15 and died later at his home after refusing medical help. Now his adult son, Cody Coots, is taking over the family church where snakes are frequently part of services. “People think they will stop handling snakes because someone got bit, but it’s just the opposite,” said Ralph Hood, a professor of psychology at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, who has been studying snake

handlers for decades. “It reaffirms their faith.” The practice of snake handling in the United States was first documented in the mountains of East Tennessee in the early 20th Century, according to Paul Williamson, a professor of psychology at Henderson State University who, along with Hood, co-wrote a book about snake handlers called, “Them That Believe.” In the 1940s and 1950s, many states made snake-handling illegal (it’s currently illegal in Kentucky), but

the practiced has continued, and often law enforcement simply looks the other way. The basis for the practice is a passage in the Gospel of Mark. In the King James Version of the Bible, Mark 16:17-18 reads: “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall

recover.” Snake handling gained momentum when George Hensley, a Pentecostal minister working in various Southern states in the early 1900s, recounted an experience where, while on a mountain, a serpent slithered beside him. Hensley purported to be able to handle the snake with impunity, and when he came down the mountain he proclaimed the truth of following all five of the signs in Mark. Hensley himself later died from a snake bite.

The Daily Union. Saturday, March 1, 2014
ing excellence and were no longer artistically valuable. Kind listeners declared the music was still lovely, but I trusted my judgment and resigned rather than disappoint myself every week. I wanted the congregation to have something better, something of higher artistic value. Who decides between high art and low art? Sometimes it is the artist. Sometimes it is the marketplace, although the price of art is probably the least accurate measure. Sometimes it is simply time and distance that decides whose works are of value. Time and distance will tell whether a work continues to relate to audiences in the future. I recently read a list by an interesting art site called artscenetoday. com. They took a poll among their followers to name the top artists of the 20th century. Over 1.4 million respondents voted Pablo Picasso as the best artist of the past century. He got 21,587 votes. Jackson Pollack narrowly skated past Andy Warhol, winning seventh place by only four votes over Warhol’s 17,047. Georgia O’Keeffe took 40th place. Last place, 200, went to Hiroshi Sugimoto, in case you are wondering. Clearly those readers were ready to judge and evaluate art. How does one do that? One way is by your personal response. I would rather have a picture by Marlene Dumas (104) than one by Mondrian (10). I would rather read Updike than Steinbeck. And I would rather listen to David Bowie than Willie Nelson, but plenty of others would give their last buck to go see Willie, and they are not wrong. So we definitely do make artistic judgments daily. And those judgments do have influence on the marketplace. We put our money where our heart is. Taking English courses at Kansas State University, I asked why we never got to study the modern authors; everything on the canon of higher literature was old and mostly written by what we called “dead white men.” I pestered professors to include the more current authors but with little success. Finally I decided no one wanted to take a chance on teaching works by authors who had not yet stood the test of time. They went with the “safe” list. So a reputation for producing high art is also driven by longevity. If your work can just survive long enough, it becomes valuable. Influence is another important way to measure artistic value, how many future artists were influenced by a certain artist. At the American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Awards in 1981 Baryshnikov was asked to give remarks on what professional dancers think about the work of Fred Astaire. He said “It’s no secret. We hate him. He gives us complexes, because he’s too perfect.” Someone like Baryshnikov felt inadequate! One of our proposed projects on this year’s Arts Calendar is a car show. A purist might say the Arts Council has no business getting involved in a car show — that’s not art — but if you ask the owners of the cars, you’ll hear the same vocabulary that art conservators use. Preserving original materials, restoring to pristine condition, no modifications to the original concept. Just what a curator does to neglected art pieces, so does the serious classic car owner. Industrial arts have more impact on our daily lives than the “higher” art forms have. We see art working in the design of our cell phones, the traffic patterns of our airports, and the graphics that make us want to buy or sleep on or eat the products shown so colorfully in film and magazine ads. Would you call these industrial arts low art? I think their impact on our lives and choices is surprisingly strong. Just drive by the car wash on the first sunny day in February and you can hardly count the people who are restoring their little “sculpture” on wheels to its former beauty. Art is everywhere. Before you go, the C.L. Hoover Opera House, our landlord, is housing an exhibit by a fine batik artist from Milford, Ortrud Hauptli. She is setting up her striking and colorful framed works even as you read this. Please stop in the Opera House during the month of March and enjoy a stroll around the Walker Lobby where Ortrud and husband Gary have hung many of her works. You will see landscapes, lake country scenes, farm and forest and flowers. If the artist is around, she will tell you how the multilayer batik work is made. Fine art in a fine setting.


Junction City Arts Council

Sally Jardine is the President of the Junction City Arts Council.

he guests have all gone home, the dishes are washed, and the leftovers are wrapped and taken away. I took a last bite of the Chocolate Walnut Torte and virtuously pushed the rest away. Oh, my aching feet are complaining. Our 40th anniversary party was fun, with a great meal provided by Applemint Caterers of Abilene, and lovely entertainment by Michael Brown and the JC Singers. Founding mother of the Arts Council Jolana Montgomery-Matney described how this Junction City Arts Council idea was born in the center aisle of the Episcopal Church when she and the late Charles Neale chatted after service about wanting to have art opportunities in their town, and slowly they devised a purpose and plan that chugged along, amazingly, for 40 years. With help from the early members, Lee Howe Brede, Pat Suckey, and many more, thoughtful and engaging events were staged for the community’s enjoyment. One we all remember is the famous Art in the Park. If you missed this, you missed something special. I don’t know how many years Art in the Park took place, but it was always memorable. There were artists’ booths with items for sale and art under construction. There was music, both stationery and strolling, instrumental and vocal. There were food vendors and tables where children were invited to play with paint, chalk or sand art. There was lots to look at and lots to buy. As a young mother and mostly housebound, I loved the chance to see Inga Bow’s fanciful ceramics and paintings by the wonderful Barbara Bulloch, and carvings and textiles by so many fine artists. I couldn’t afford anything much, but the chance to look was so valuable. And even more valuable was the chance to show my young son how beautiful things are made. Kids love art because it is surprising and colorful and darn good fun. And the best part of art is nobody can tell you our personal attempt at making something artful is bad. Dividing art into good art and bad art is a dangerous and argumentative endeavor, only to be undertaken by the stouthearted. Recently, I resigned from a post as church musician, one I had occupied for eight or nine years, because I felt my weekly efforts were los-

Williams, Scott perform Oscar-nominated music

AP Entertainment Writer
LOS ANGELES (AP) — John Williams and Jill Scott were among the artists who brought this year’s Oscarnominated music to life at an inaugural concert organized by the motion picture academy. Williams conducted an 80-piece orchestra performing his score from “The Book Thief,” while Scott put her own spin on the Pharrell ditty “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2” at Thursday’s first-ever Oscar Concert at UCLA’s Royce Hall. The show featured each of this year’s nominated composers leading an orchestra of professional studio musicians, as well as performances of each original song vying for the Academy Award. “What’s fantastic about an evening like this is we can understand completely that these movies we see wouldn’t be what they are and couldn’t be made without the service of a great orchestra,” said Williams, who with 49 nods is the second most nominated person behind Walt Disney in Oscar history. The concert, hosted by rapper-actor Common and featuring an appearance by Oscar-winning songwriter Richard Sherman, kicked off with six-time nominee Alexandre Desplat leading a suite from “Philomena.” Other composers who took the stage included 12-time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman with “Saving Mr. Banks”; as well as first-time nominees William Butler and Owen Pallett of Arcade Fire with “Her”; and “Gravity” composer Steven Price, who delegated conducting duties to collaborator Joseph Trapanese.
