Quarry supporter not ready to give up quite yet
After two commission groups refused to allow the re-opening of a local rock quarry, supporter Tom Weigand is not giving up. The CEO of the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce, recently submitted a letter to the Geary County Commission, requesting another meeting to allow more expert testimony and review. Thats where we are, Weigand said while in his office Monday. Im not trying to abuse them (the commissioners), Im just trying to re-address the issue. On Dec. 9, the County Commission upheld the Metropolitan Planning Commissions decision to deny a request for a conditional use permit to reopen a quarry on the property near Munson Road, between Rucker Road and K-244 Highway. Many nearby residents opposed Jim Didas and his request to use the site to mine rock. Didas, the owner of Range and Civil Construction (RACC), also wanted to use the Please see One, 8A

Soldiers have many talents

The 1st Infantry Division Band captivated the crowd of more than 400 spectators Dec. 14 at the C.L. Hoover Opera House. The holiday concert was full of holiday classics and included some traditional music of Hanukkah. Santa Claus made an early appearance to give out a few festive treats to the children in attendance. The musical ensemble was not only made of soldiers, but also members of the Junction City Community Band to help add to the holiday spirit.

MANHATTAN Write down three simple things: A positive daily routine, someone reliable and a group that provides a connection in the area. Now, crumple up that list and throw it away. Thats what Blair Benz, team member, Fort Riley Parent to Parent, Military Child Education Coalition, had attendees do at a Military Relations Committee luncheon Dec. 4 in Manhattan to illustrate what military families go through when they move. When families get word of relocation, they may as well be going to Mars, Benz joked, because they will have to start from scratch to get acclimated somewhere new. No matter where a family is within a relocation or deployment cycle newly arrived at a duty station, settled in and exploring the area, facing deployment or

1ST Infantry Division Public Affairs

MANHATTAN Children in the Home Economics program at Fort Rileys School Age Center visited residents in a Manhattan nursing home Dec. 6 to give them homemade presents. The children made more than 100 items for the residents, including knitted hats and scarves, as well as pillows. Being at the nursing home made us all feel really good because we got to give our projects away, said Kylie Sparks, 8. The children almost unanimously agreed that being able to give their gifts to the elderly was the best part of the whole process. It was really cool,

Sparks said. Many of the children said they also enjoyed the opportunity to entertain the residents with a fun puppet show. The group used sock puppets to perform the song Mahna-Mahna from The Muppets. The nursing home (residents) really enjoyed the children. It was so warming and brightening to be able to experience them interacting with each other, said Claudia Cline, program assistant, SAC, Child, Youth and School Services, Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation. Cline said the children even won over a self-proclaimed grumpy old man by giving him a hat. Several of the elderly even gave the children a kiss, Cline said.

redeployment Parent to Parent offers workshops to help the military community thrive. And, all of the Parent to Parent workshops are free. As the guest speakers at the December lunch, team members Benz, Stormy Jones and Jennifer Dixon discussed their backgrounds and the variety of programs they offer. All Parent to Parent personnel have ties to the military. Between the Fort Riley team, they have gone through 32 moves, have raised 11 children and have spent about half a century in military families, so they know first-hand what parents go through and what life is like for a military family, Jones said. Either we have served or are married to those who serve, she said. When we go talk to parents, we can empathize with them. More than just empathizing, they also provide tips on how to thrive in the military

environment through workshops on resilience, deployment, reintegration and more. Benz walked attendees through a typical transition cycle of denial, resistance, exploration and commitment. Everyone goes through these cycles when faced with change, Benz said. But for military families who face change more frequently than most, resilience is crucial. We want to shorten that resistance and denial phase, Benz said. We talk about how you build resilience. Benz said she loves hearing parents get excited about something new theyve learned at a workshop, whether they pick up tips to try at home or get affirmation on a technique theyve been using. In addition to workshops on resilience, Parent to Parent also focuses on educational workshops. With the average military

child changing schools seven to nine times, Parent to Parent offers valuable information not only for children and students, but also for parents to navigate the confusing waters of switching schools and help their children thrive and prepare for the future, Jones said. According to its Facebook page, Parent to Parents goal is to empower parents to be their childs strongest advocate on educational and social issues. To do so, their workshops cover a variety of topics, like science, cooking, bullying, Internet safety, learning styles and more. We all have different learning styles, Dixon said. It is important for us, as parents, to know that. The workshops are highly engaging, Dixon said, as she described a simple science experiment of putting a can of soda and a can of diet soda in water to see which would float the diet soda because its not weighed down by extra sugar.

Special to the Daily Union

The Flint Hills are the perfect big back yard to develop life skills and build champion cowboys and cowgirls while doing it. God knew I needed a big back yard, and I was fortunate to be born into a ranch family to learn and live the great life it offers, recognized Heather (Huntington) Fuesz (pronounced fees) of Eureka. Having just settled down Saturday evening after a busy day with their youngest son at a Heartland Youth Rodeo in Kingman, Heather emphasized, Now, my husband Cory and I continue to be so blessed to live our lives on the ranch and offer our sons the same opportunity. While conversation initiated about 10-year-old son Cash and his vast rodeo achievements, there is much more ranch heritage essential to be briefed in revealing how the Flint Hills are truly a way of life for the family. Cash is a cowboy in the arena and on the ranch. He started riding at age two, helps gather and work pasture cattle and drags calves to the fire at branding time. What many of his friends do just on weekends, Cash does every day. The ranch is our home, Heather qualified. Our older son, Clinton Laflin grew up this lifestyle, too, and now is completing a masters degree in international agriculture business at Oklahoma State in order to tell this important story of his Flint Hills upbring-

ing, its ranching and agriculture tradition and fulfill his lifes goal to become a strong voice for production agriculture, Mom credited. Raised on the Greenwood County family ranch developed by her dad and mom, Clint and Irlene Huntington, Heather acknowledged, Dad had to take over his familys ranch operation at an early age, and was unable to compete in rodeos. But, he always had a fondness for rodeo, and rodeo champion Ladd Lewis was his best man at their wedding. So, Dad and Mom have always been very supportive of me in rodeo and horse activities, as they are of my husband and our sons. Thats one of their biggest gifts to me, Heather emphasized. Active in diverse 4-H and community activities, which her parents served as leaders, Heather was a champion in many horse and rodeo events throughout the Midwest while growing up and collected multiple rodeo queen titles, including serving as Miss Rodeo Kansas. Graduating from Kansas State University in journalism and mass communications, Heather served as director of development at Pratt Community College, before meeting Cory Fuesz at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas 14 years ago. I grew up a cowgirl on horseback in the Flint Hills, and Cory was a dirt bike rider and football star in Colorado. But, he has a strong connection

with animals, started calf roping before graduating from Colorado State, and got his Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association card. It was lucky for me that he became a cowboy, Heather mused. After marrying 13 years ago, the couple moved to Greenwood County, and they are involved in ranching operations on their own and with her parents. Cory actually always had an interest in the cattle business and even created a small feedlot operation while he was in high school. Now, we run the fall cows, Dad has the spring cows, and together we lease summer grass for grazing cat-

tle, Heather explained. Corys parents, Gary and Vicki Fuesz, farm at Haxtun, Colorado, and operate the feedlot that Cory started. Back to Cash, a fourth grader. Hes had a great year on the rodeo circuit, credited Mom, in truly an understatement. During August, Cash collected his fourth trophy saddle in his yet very young career, as the all-around cowboy in the seven-to-nineyear-old division of the Kansas Junior Rodeo Association, while participating in ten regular season rodeos throughout central Kansas. Additionally, Cash won the boys goat tying and bar-

rel racing, was second in both calf riding and pole bending and seventh in breakaway roping, collecting a number of buckles and working- cowboy prizes. In the rodeo segment of the Sunflower Games at Topeka, during July, Cash also collected the all-around age division title after receiving medals for first in goat tying and barrel racing and third in calf riding. Rodeo is a family sport. We are fortunate to count many of the rodeo families among our best friends. Were having the time of our lives watchingCash fulfill his dreams, Heather admitted.

Lawrence of Arabia star OToole dead at 81


Associated Press
LONDON Known on the one hand for his starring role in Lawrence of Arabia, leading tribesmen in daring attacks across the desert wastes, and on the other for his headlong charges into drunken debauchery, Peter OToole was one of the most magnetic, charismatic and fun figures in British acting. OToole, who died Saturday at age 81 at the private Wellington Hospital in London after a long bout of illness, was nominated a record eight times for an Academy Award without taking home a single statue. He was fearsomely handsome, with burning blue eyes and a penchant for hard living which long outlived his decision to give up alcohol. Broadcaster Michael Parkinson told Sky News television it was hard to be too sad about his passing. Peter didnt leave much of life unlived, did he? he said. A reformed but unrepentant hell-raiser, OToole long suffered from ill health. Always thin, he had grown wraithlike in later years, his famously handsome face eroded by years of outrageous drinking. But nothing diminished his flamboyant manner and candor. If you cant do something willingly and joyfully, then dont do it, he once said. If you give up drinking, dont go moaning about it; go back on the bottle. Do. As. Thou. Wilt.

OToole began his acting career as one of the most exciting young talents on the British stage. His 1955 Hamlet, at the Bristol Old Vic, was critically acclaimed. International stardom came in David Leans epic Lawrence of Arabia. With only a few minor movie roles behind him, OToole was unknown to most moviegoers when they first saw him as T.E. Lawrence, the mythic British World War I soldier and scholar who led an Arab rebellion against the Turks. His sensitive portrayal of

Lawrences complex character garnered OToole his first Oscar nomination, and the spectacularly photographed desert epic remains his best known role. OToole was tall, fair and strikingly handsome, and the image of his bright blue eyes peering out of an Arab headdress in Leans film was unforgettable. Playwright Noel Coward once said that if OToole had been any prettier, they would have had to call the movie Florence of Arabia. Prime Minister David Cameron said Sunday the

movie was his favorite film, calling OTooles performance stunning. Actor Will Ferrell also remembered Lawrence of Arabia. My father took me to see a re-release of Lawrence of Arabia on the big screen and I couldnt get over how amazing that movie

looked for the time it was shot and how charismatic he was on screen, Ferrell said Sunday at the New York premiere of Anchorman 2. You hear a name like Peter OToole, you hear these names and you go, uh, yeah, OK, they were movie stars, then you watch them on film

and you go, they really were movie stars. In 1964s Becket, OToole played King Henry II to Richard Burtons Thomas Becket, and won another Oscar nomination. Burton shared OTooles fondness for drinking, and their off-set carousing made headlines.

Another view Kill switch could curb

smartphone thefts
The following editorial appeared in the Chicago Tribune on Thursday, Dec. 12

very time you pull out your smartphone in public, youre making yourself a target. The mobile gadgets are easy to spot, easy to steal and fetch hundreds of dollars quickly on the black market. Protect Your Bubble, a company that sells insurance for personal electronics, says 113 smartphones are stolen every minute in the U.S. In New York, those thefts account for 14 percent of all crime. Cops have a name for it Apple picking but the iPhone maker is actually out front in the effort to curb gadget snatching. An activation-lock feature on Apples iOS 7 allows the owner to wipe data from a stolen phone, which cant be reactivated without the owners password. Other manufacturers have been slow to add antitheft features to their phones, though, despite urging from police. Now, a coalition of law enforcement officials, including Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan, is pushing an initiative called Secure Our Smartphones. The group has been pressuring cellphone makers to provide a remote antitheft feature called a kill switch. If a phone is lost or stolen, the owner simply reports it to the carrier and the phone is rendered inoperable. If the phone doesnt work, theres not much reason to steal it. So why hasnt the industry embraced the technology? The coalition has some troubling theories. Phonemakers have a disincentive: If your phone is stolen, you will probably buy another one, and fast. The carriers who service those phones have reason to resist, too. They make a lot of money selling insurance against loss or theft. San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, who co-chairs the SOS, was working with Samsung, which wants to install a kill switch on its phones. But Samsung needs permission from the carriers, and Gascon says theyre balking. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sent letters to the carriers asking them to explain, and followed up with a news release: If carriers are colluding to prevent theft-deterrent features from being preinstalled on devices as means to sell more insurance products, they are doing so at the expense of public safety and putting their customers in danger. Yes, danger. While many phones are lifted from their owners purses or snatched from their hands, many others are taken through force. In Chicago, a 68-year-old woman died after being shoved down the stairs at the CTAs Fullerton Brown Line station by a 17-year-old who fled with an iPhone he stole on a train. The youth, who was accused in two similar robberies before being charged with first-degree murder, has been sentenced to 32 years in prison. The Federal Trade Commission says one out of three robberies nationwide involves the theft of a mobile phone. The wireless industrys preferred solution is a database assembled in cooperation with the Federal Communications Commission, law enforcement and governments. If someone tries to reactivate a phone that has been reported stolen, the carrier can block it. But police say that effort hasnt made a dent in the problem, partly because so many stolen phones end up overseas. And sophisticated thieves can change the phones unique identifiers easily. Schneiderman says his group will use every tool in our toolbox to pressure the industry to adopt the kill switch. Hes made noises about possible deceptive trade practices, and yes, manufacturers claims about their phones security features appear exaggerated in the face of a thriving black market. But shaming the industry could be an effective tool, too. The demand for stolen smartphones is a threat not just to your privacy and your pocketbook. Its a threat to your safety.

A unique look at primary races

Commentary skamp got a couple extras. See what happens in primary elections? The more candidates, the fewer votes you need to win. In 2010 Huelskamp did get more than a third of the primary vote, not a bad showing, but nearly two-thirds of the votes went to other candidates. And last year, he ran for election to a second term ... and there was no Republican primary opposition ... and no registered Democrat ran against him, so he virtually skated into a second term. Were figuring checking the Huelskamp box was probably quicker than writing-in, say, Beyonce Doesnt get much better than that if you are a freshman congressman ... running or with no opposition you could just walk into for a second term. So, last week, former State Rep. Kent Roth, of Ellinwood, a Democrat when he served in the Legislature but a registered Republican and U.S. Sen. Bob Dole, R-Kan., supporter for the last 21 years, decided to get into the GOP primary against Huelskamp. Now is when it gets interesting If Roth can stay the only GOP challenger, the winner of the primary will need 51 percent of the GOP votes. And that at least partly (sure, there are other factors) turns the race into a Yes or No vote on Huelskamp since the congressman hasnt been tested at the ballot box since his 2010 primary win. What if the two-thirds of Republicans, or many of them, who didnt vote for Huelskamp in 2010 vote for Roth? Roth wins the primary ... and likely the general election ... See the key here: Roth is hoping to be the only other candidate on the primary ballot, and if you were Huelskamp, youd probably be hoping for more candidates, all he can get on the ballot. Its safer that way. If you live in the First District let us know if you get a box of bumper stickers with your name on them from Huelskamp for Christmas

or three-quarters of Kansas, heres an interesting little look at the just-under way campaign for the congressional seat in the Big First District. For a quarter of Kansans living in the First District, well, watch what happens where you live. The deal: Two-term U.S. Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., was elected in 2010 after surviving a six-candidate Republican primary election. He was a state senator before that, pretty well-known in his own district and in surrounding legislative districts. His congressional primary election back in 2010 saw him get 34 percent of the vote and he was virtually elected, having an R beside his name in the Republican-heavy (by percentage, were not talking weight) First District. Huelskamp campaigned hard, and got 34,819 votes in that primary election. The other 65,164 votes were split unevenly among the five other candidates on the GOP ballot out west. He didnt get the majority of the primary vote that would have been 49,992 but he won the plurality and got the nomination. Key here: The more Republican candidates on the primary election ballot, the fewer votes you need to win. Calculator ready? Theoretically, Huelskamp could have won the primary with as few as 16,665 votes, had every candidate gotten one-sixth of the vote and Huel-

About this page

former colleague of mine once had the blessing to speak to a high school assembly on Career Day. Just before he was to begin his talk there was a disruption in the audience, followed by a stern talking-to delivered by a hard-nosed vice principal. When he took the microphone, he began, I havent been to a high school since I graduated 20 years ago, and, from what just happened, I can see why I havent missed it at all! I envied him for the quick-thinking which led to that zinger and that he was able to give it. That was probably the best advice they got all day: that soon, the bureaucratic madness and close control that is high school will be over and not be repeated unless, of course, you end up in either prison or a nursing home or both. Ive known some people who truly feel high school years were the best times of their lives. I pity them. If you havent learned anything about life since high school not talking about book-learning then youre still the same pathetic bully or mean girl you were back then. Everybodys life has ups and downs but high schools the worst for most people. Im still Facebook friends with some from back then and go to reunions sometimes, but I have no illusions its all reliving good times. My best one-onone conversation at a reunion was with

a classmate who spent four years in prison for operating a meth lab. He got his parole after he had several religious right preachers speak for him at the hearing. I didnt know him when he was in the drug trade. I remember him playing the trumpet in the band and once he had a feud with our janitor Maurice Tex Hayes so he spelled out Tex on a cafeteria table with lima beans. I chided him for his association with those crazy preachers. He was surprised I knew I have sources, plus it was in the newspaper. He said I did what I had to do to get out. He seemed to have turned his life around. I wished him well. Today, high schools a lot better than it was in the 1960s, but its still the oppressive nightmare it is for many. Part of its because the social structure and the sports culture doesnt want to stop bullying, just keep it under wraps. The rest is just our introduction to adult lifes indignities I dont know if Jean-Paul Sartre, the philosopher who first said hell is other people conceived of that in high school but I know he could have. Richer and more populous school districts often create magnet schools where those who will strike for careers in arts, healthcare, law enforcement, and so on can go. Thats great but I wish it was easier to get into those schools. But for most of us high school will be our last time in our lives mingling with so many people so different from us.

Thats no small factor. Some of my best friends went to Texas A&M back when it was mostly all guys especially in the science and engineering fields, and theyve had troubles with women ever since. Im not a big fan of small town life its kind of like being able to be a high school snob for the rest of your life for those who are. In the Fort Riley area our diversity and rotating military and civilian workers on post is our strength. But our schools are among the best in Kansas, barring of course, those rich schools in the Kansas City suburbs. In rural Kansas, the high school is central to the community. This is one reason folks are skeptical of the plans by Governor Brownback and his allies to defund public education and shift its resources to religious schools and those that dont serve the disabled and diverse. Homeschooling is a great option for child actors and kids of celebrities and so forth, but not so much for those whose parents paranoid ideations lead them to fear the public schools diversity. Now a lot of grown homeschooled people are speaking up about how it serves to cover child abuse and neglect and the teaching methods promoted by religious extremists gives them no preparation for dealing with the real world. At least we got that in my high school.

Proposed Oneok split could mean 3-year rate freeze
lion plus $200,000 for administrative costs to charities that help low-income people weatherize their homes. WICHITA A plan by Oklahoma gas company, Oneok Inc., to spin off its utility operations would mean a base rates freeze until 2017 and small rebates for customers of Kansas Gas Service. Those provisions are part of a settlement between Oneok, the staff of the Kansas Corporation Commission and the Citizens Utility Ratepayer Board, The Wichita Eagle reported. The settlement means there will be no opposition to the company split when the plan goes before the KCC. The settlement contains provisions to ensure the split will be in the best interest of customers and the company, said David Springe, chief consumer counsel for CURB, the state agency that represents residential and small business customers. What we tried to do was get customers some tangible benefits today, because you cant lock down costs in the future, Springe said. Under the proposal, Oneok would be broken into two companies. A new company, One Gas, would take over Oneoks natural gas distribution systems in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas. The remainder of Oneok would keep the company name and operate its businesses in gathering, transport and processing natural gas and related liquid products. One Gas would have more than 2 million customers and would become the nations third-largest publicly traded natural gas utility company, according to testimony filed by KCC accounting chief Justin Grady. Kansas Gas Service has 630,000 customers. The settlement requires that One Gas wont seek any increase in basic rates for gas delivery that would take effect before Jan. 1, 2017. Customers would receive rebates totaling about $3.4 million a year for three years. Each customer will get a $5.34 bill credit paid in April in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The proposal also calls for One Gas to contribute $1 mil-

Quake reported in south-central Kansas

CALDWELL A magnitude 3.8 earthquake hit south-central Kansas on Monday, rattling windows and doors, but causing no reported damage or injuries. The U.S. Geological Survey initially reported the earthquake that hit about 9 a.m. to be a magnitude 4.2 but later revised it to magnitude 3.8. The epicenter of the earthquake was about 11 miles northwest of Caldwell, a town of about 1,000 residents near the Oklahoma border. The earthquake had a depth of 3.1 miles, the USGS said. Weve got reports of it being felt at intensity level three, which means rattling windows, possibly some books falling off shelves, that sort of thing, said Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the USGS National Earthquake Center in Golden, Colo. It had been unusual for earthquakes to be reported in Kansas until this year, Caruso said. Since 2010, there have been 15 earthquakes within a 100 mile radius of Caldwell, which includes into Oklahoma, he said. All but one of those earthquakes occurred in 2013, he said. A recent study by the U.S. Geological Survey said that from 1975 to 2008, there were only a handful of earthquakes at magnitude-3.0 or greater each year in Oklahoma. But the average grew to around 40 annual earthquakes from 2009 to 2013. Scientists are not certain whats causing the increased seismic activity, but one theory says it coul be related to wastewater from oil and gas drilling thats often discarded by injecting it deep into underground wells. South-central Kansas also has seen increased oil drilling the last couple of years.

The Sumner County Sheriffs Office said there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. Lincoln Crampton, who has a woodworking business outside Caldwell, said he initially thought Mondays quake was a truck running off a nearby road. He said it lasted about six seconds. I didnt know what was going on. We usually dont get those. ... My mind doesnt go to that, Crampton said. The house shook for a while. There were some pretty good rattles in the house.

Students movie project gets star treatment

WICHITA A class of Wichita fourth-graders has gotten the red-carpet treatment. The Wichita Eagle reports the Colvin Elementary School students pulled up Saturday morning at the Palace Theater in limousines to watch the movie they wrote, edited, produced and filmed. Teacher Brianna Falvey says the extra attention was a huge motivational tool for them. For the project, the mostly native Spanish speaking students were split into groups. They selected a genre and wrote their scripts. The groups chose to work on a newscast, horror, science fiction and action segments and a music video. Falvey says the district has been encouraging teachers to come up with creative ways to incorporate literacy into activities. Several businesses chipped in money to make the event possible, including the theater and limo company.

brief fire. More than 5,000 people were without power Sunday in Harper, Kingman and Sumner counties. KWCH-TV reports officials with Wheatland Electric said about 4 a.m. Monday that all power had been restored. A spokesman for Wheatland Electric says the line belongs to Westar Energy but supplies power to the company for the three counties. The outage started about 1 p.m. Sunday when a crossarm on a transmission line near Clearwater failed, causing a conductor to fall.

about neighbors who flout those rules. Seiwert says it may be time for tougher enforcement and higher penalties, similar to efforts decades ago to make drunken driving a more serious crime. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Rep. Sharon Schwartz urges caution, saying not everyone who over pumps does it intentionally. Jackie McClaskey, acting secretary of the state Department of Agriculture, says the department is looking into new penalties for water conservation violations.

13 reports of counterfeit money in Hutchinson

HUTCHINSON Hutchinson police are investigating more 13 cases of people using counterfeit money in the city since Dec. 5. The Hutchinson News reports seven of the cases were reported during the weekend. Most of the reports have come from fast-food restaurants. But one woman reported a man on Saturday bought her 2001 Chevrolet S-10 using counterfeit money. Additional details of that case were not immediately available. Hutchinson police says businesses and individuals should inspect cash before accepting it, particularly residents who are estate sales or selling items through social media.

Brownback to seek increase in all-day kindergarten

TOPEKA Gov. Sam Brownback is preparing to propose the state pick up the additional cost of providing all-day kindergarten in Kansas public schools. The Republican governor says in an interview Monday that his plan would be to increase state support over five years at a cost of $16 million a year. Currently the state pays for half-day kindergarten but allows districts to have all-day classes using other funding sources, including funds appropriated for atrisk students. Brownback says he has had talks with school districts and state education officials about the proposal, which he says has broad support. The State Board of Education has made all-day kindergarten one of its budget requests for the past several years.

House that funding for a new bioscience lab is secure under a new budget agreement. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Huelskamp is questioning comments last week by fellow Republican Lynn Jenkins about why she voted for the bipartisan measure. Huelskamp says the bill does nothing to secure money for construction of the $1.25 billion National Bio- and Agro-Defense Facility in Manhattan. Huelskamp voted against the budget deal. Jenkins issued a statement when the bill passed the House suggesting the money was moving forward in the process. A Jenkins spokeswoman told The Capital-Journal the statement was meant to convey that any funding for NBAF would be at stake if the budget deal stalled.

Cabinet turnover high as Brownback enters year three

TOPEKA Gov. Sam Brownback has seen almost half of his 11 permanent Cabinet secretary appointments turn over in the first three years of his tenure. The percentage outpaces that of predecessors Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat, and Bill Graves, a Republican, The Topeka CapitalJournal reports. But Brownback spokeswoman Sara Belfry said the turnover isnt unusual compared to past governors, including Democrat Joan Finney. It is not unexpected that talented people who served in this administration had other opportunities become available and they decided to pursue other opportunities, Belfry said. Among the Cabinet leaders to depart are Rob Siedlecki, who was tapped to lead the Kansas Department for Social and Rehabilitation Services.

Husband likes to watch porn, wife hates it

Dear Annie: My husband likes to watch porn. I dont care to watch it myself, but if my husband asks me to join him in his viewing, I will. Recently, I found out that my husband was watching porn on his phone at work. When I confronted him, he claimed it was just an advertising pop-up. But I knew he was not being truthful. I checked his phone and found that these were actual websites that you have to log on to in order to view the contents. I dont like him to watch porn at all, but Id rather we watch together than know hes accessing live webcam shows and chat rooms. I consider this to be cheating. I have told him how it makes me feel and have asked him to stop. But he says hes going to continue because he enjoys it and sees nothing wrong with it. Now he erases the data from his phone so I wont see it. After 28 years together, he is now deceiving me, and I am terribly hurt. He doesnt seem to care how I feel or that he is damaging the trust between us. What did I do wrong for him to treat me this way? I have asked him to see a marriage counselor or a sex therapist with me, but hes not interested. I love him, but I dont think I can live with this kind of life. Do you think watching and chatting with a real naked woman online is cheating? What about watching porn behind your wifes back? Is this normal behavior in a marriage? Angel in Anaheim Dear Angel: A marriage is not healthy when one partner doesnt care about the feelings of the other. Unlike old-fashioned pornography, the Internet provides real women, in real time, performing virtual sex acts. This not only creates unrealistic expectations of ones actual partner, but it can become addictive. Your husband may not be having an affair, but he is both sexually and emotionally connected to other women, which could be considered cheating. Since your husband refuses to go for counseling, please go on your own and sort it out. Dear Annie: My husband, Tom, passed away nearly three years ago. He had a lot of friends, most of whom I havent seen since Toms funeral. Our daughter has since

Thank heavens! No one can understand the frustration and struggle I have had with this all of my life. I have tried so hard to go to sleep at a normal hour and wake up early, but cannot. I miss out on a lot, but I cant help it. I feel fine when I am able to live according to my natural schedule, working night jobs and hanging out with other night people. Night Owl Dear Night Owl: Many readers were surprised and delighted to discover that their late-night sleep schedule could be identified. Heres another viewpoint: Dear Annie: I am typically up until 2 a.m. and sleep until 10. I get my eight hours each night. I do whatever my day calls for during my waking hours with no problem. Why should this be called a disorder? My order is fine. Who determines what is normal? Different is not synonymous with abnormal. Massachusetts

ARIES (March 21April 19). Traffic, weather, the passage of time all things you cant change, but oh, how you would if you could today. A happy friend will help you enjoy the many things over which you do have control. TAURUS (April 20May 20). Theres a test and/or major passage coming up, and the outcome will depend on how prepared you are. Spend time on it today, and plan on spending more time in the days to come. Make a daily habit out of it. GEMINI (May 21June 21). Even the most graceful relationships are messy. To love another is to make a mess of something, be it feelings, thoughts, schedules or property. Something is bound to get broken and thats just part of it. CANCER (June 22July 22). Its like youre in a periodpiece romance in which your attractive co-star is acting stoic and distant because he or she is in love with you. A handwritten note will drive the drama home. LEO (July 23Aug. 22). You are able to put your own needs and wishes aside in order to understand what others want and need out of a situation. This allows you to project the image you feel will most influence others. Use your powers for good! VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22). If theres one thing to be learned today, its to have more patience waiting in lines. Impatient, tight, mad faces are ugly, and they make everyone elses experience ugly, too. The superior mind smiles while waiting. LIBRA (Sept. 23Oct. 23). Its one of those rare times when its actually positive to dwell on the past. Youll learn something. Theres a bit you missed, and when you look back, it will click into place for you. This changes how you think of yourself. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You dont resent other peoples success, though it does get on your nerves from time to time, especially if said other people wont shut up about it. Ignore the boasters. It will drive them crazy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You are able to present the truth in a way that others want to hear not necessarily a lie, but also not the complete story. Be careful. Someone may be using the same trick on you. Can you detect it? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). Perhaps it would be better for everyone if people would do things in accordance with your timeline, but they wont. Nagging wont help matters. Your attractive attitude is the best tool you have for influencing others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You dont require your loved ones to be or believe as you do. Being whole on your own, you can disagree with someone and still hold that persons hand. PISCES (Feb. 19March 20). Just because something is working doesnt mean you should leave it alone. Youll see an example of a superior product, system or relationship and be inspired to take your own scene up a level.

Daring greatly
Local students talk about positives of program


and evaluating choices. By Teaching them techniques like that, it helps them out, Loudin said. Essay writer Evelynn Samuel tried to persuade others to use that model and not to use drugs, to have a better life. I like mostly everything about DARE because I get to learn a lot of stuff, Evelynn said. Like Alexus and Evelynn, Max Jaynes essay also was about the importance of having the program in every school. It teaches you not to take any drugs or alcohol and how that will save your life, Max said. Max learned about coping with bullying and pressure, which was his favorite lesson. I was saying dont give into pressure, if theyre pressuring you to use drugs, Max said.
FORT RILEY As Alexus Ferguson stood next to Sgt. Stephen Loudin, she overcame stage fright as she faced her classmates and read her essay about DARE and the future. It was something her fifth-grade peers needed to hear. Alexus was one of the top essay writers who spoke during the Drug Abuse Resistance Education graduation at Ware Elementary. It was one of several being held throughout Unified School District 475, during the month of December.

The purpose of the program is to provide children with information and skills for a drug-andviolence free life. We learned that smoking can give you lung disease, smelly breath and yellow teeth, Alexus said after the graduation. Drugs can make your lifetime shorter and bullying shouldnt be happening. The students also learned that ignoring bullies is the same as doing nothing or just as bad. DARE also teaches students to avoid negative influences and focus on strengths and potential. Principal Deb Gustafson said she has one more semester to spend with fifth grade students at

Ware Elementary School. After those students leave the Fort Riley school, theyre going to join the world of Middle School. As an elementary student, Gustafson said its easy to make good choices. Once you get to middle school next year, that will change, Gustafson told her students. She encouraged the students to surround themselves with people who have their best interest at heart. If they cared about you, they would not want you to do things that negatively impact you, Gustafson said. Loudin, School Resource Officer and DARE instructor, conducted the 10-week program. The letters in DARE were also used as a model for dealing with problems

with honey chipotle vinaigrette began the meal followed by filet of beef in cognac cream sauce, dauphinoise potatoes and aspargus. For dessert, lemon spring cake with caramel drizzle or a chocolate mousse pyramid with raspberry swirl. Jaye Otte, member of the Glitz Committee, created evergreen wreath centerpieces with gold and silver accents which surrounded a pillar candle. They were then auctioned off which added $3,300 towards the total. Other members of the committee: Jennifer Craft, Sue Frieze, Jody Jenkins, Patti Schoenrock, Liz Sites, Marilyn Smith, Michele Stimatze, Vanessa Vande Riet, Rick Mata, Laura Cain, Jill he said. But the community will have to wait a while longer to hear more specific examples of how Smith plans to guide the community into the future. At some point in time Ill be able to have that conversation with the City Commission in terms of my observations through a state of the city address or something like that, Smith said. McCallister said Smiths conservative approach in
Junction City needs to figure out its municipal court facilities problem. Tonight, the City Commission is expected to discuss whether to renovate the old municipal courthouse at 225 W. Seventh St. for $1.3 million or remodel the current temporary location at 701 N. Jefferson St. for just under $1.1 million. Court hearings and services have been held at the city-owned building on North Jefferson Street the old home of the Junction City Area Chamber of Commerce since August because of severe water damage and mold issues at the West Seventh Street building. A relocation to North Jefferson Street would be cheaper and provide more ade-

quate storage space, which was an obstacle for staff when municipal court was located in the other building. City staff recommends the commission approve funding to remodel the North Jefferson St. building. The $1.1 million was budgeted for in the 2014 capital improvement fund.

Junction City already has set aside $500,000 for scheduled street maintenance in 2014, but about $600,000 could be added if the commission feels so inclined. For tonights meeting, city staff has recommended commissioners approve the use of the additional funds, which are in the special highway fund, for street maintenance. Those funds were made available in May after the ness manager for the C.L. Hoover Opera House. That move was somewhat forced when current executive director Mary Louise Stahl said she would be resigning when her contract expires in January. Smith said hes looking forward to moving forward with the Opera House and other projects that have started during his time here. Some of that time for a short period was drawn away from the city when Smith welcomed the birth of his grandchild. Now back in full swing, Smiths still getting to know not only how the city works, but also who are some of the communitys major players. I think were two months roads, making a lot of dust, he said. Didas said he would remediate the dust on the roads, which would make it better. In his letter, Weigand stated the commission was under a great deal of emotional pressure from the residents and said a bad decision was made to turn down Didas and his request. Bottom line, the decision in my opinion was arbitrary and capricious, based on hearsay and emotion, which is never a good way to make a decision, Weigand wrote. The letter also contains information about his own personal experience of dealing with a quarry and other studies. Weigand said the noises from the trucks can be changed or muffled, so it wont be irritating. During the first hearing, there was a misstatement about trucks leaving and going every six minutes. Weigand said there will be a few loads a day on seasonal basis or when contractors needed rock.

Major street repairs expected for 2014

city refinanced various debt obligation bonds. At the time, the commission stated the money possibly could be spent to repair streets. The city public works and engineering departments is looking to use the funding to perform concrete patch repairs and asphalt milling and overlay work in 2014. Those repairs are more costly but also will provide a more durable surface than the microsurfacing work performed on many streets in 2013.

Junction City again is hoping for a Kansas Department of Transportation grant that would help fund a 10-feet wide bicycle and pedestrian pathway along K-18 to from Wildcat Lane to in here now and I think Ive got a good lay of the land, he said. Yet theres still others that Im still coming into contact with. As for future leadership, Aska said hell be looking for Smith to provide more insight at City Commission meetings down the road. Probably here in sixth months Id start expecting to see some solid stuff coming from him in terms of recommendations, he said. Commissioner Mick McCallister also is comfortable with how Smith has performed to this point. So far, Im pleased with his attitude and his interaction with the staff, McCallister said. As the weather gets better, I expect On Monday, Planning and Zoning Director David Yearout, presented the idea of having an official resolution to deny a request for rezoning. We dont know if we have to do that, Commissioner Ben Bennett said during a weekly press conference. Its done and its decided that were not going to revisit that at this time. Bennett said the resolution idea currently is being reviewed by County Attorney Steven Opat. Its just a matter of keeping everything legal as we can and transparent as we can, Bennett said. Although a decision already has been made, it may be reviewed in the future, if a lawsuit is filed and the case goes to district court. In regard to Weigands request, Yearout said the applicant had ample time to present everything, since a public hearing was delayed several times. Its not like the public hearing was rushed through, Yearout said.

KDOT grant could help fund K-18 pathway

Rucker Road. The city has hoped to piggyback on KDOTs US-77 improvement projects, which includes work on the K-18 interchange and the Spring Valley Road intersection. Tonight, the City Commission is expected to decide whether to sign off on another attempt to receive the grant. The city application for the grant in 2012 and 2013 was unsuccessful. If awarded, the city would be required to pay 20 percent of path construction costs and all design costs for the path. If KDOT approves the grant for funding, then the city would pay about $138,000 in design costs in 2014. The citys total share would be about $658,000. The project would be completed in segments by 2017. him to embrace the community a little more by getting out in the community more often. You know, pressing the flesh and talking eye-to-eye with community members. I think thats what he wants to do. Early on, some of Smiths focus has been devoted to issues currently faced by city departments, Aska said. Were going to be looking for him to shape those things up better and provide a stronger guide,

(There are) several things I think hes just starting to look at and formulate some opinions and thoughts that hell be sharing with the commission. Smith generally has been a spectator during recent City Commission meetings. Most of the issues addressed at those meetings developed before he was hired. However, Smith was one of the minds behind the citys search for a new executive director and a busi-

Although it may have economic benefits, residents have voiced concern about blasting damaging water wells, noise, dust control and road safety. Weigand said theres been studies made about blasting and results have shown that water has been damaged, but not excessively. Theres been some places where its been discolored for a day, two or three, but not destroyed, Weigand said. He also noted that blasting goes up, not down. You dont necessarily fracture below, you fracture above, Weigand said. Traffic, safety and dust has been another concern. Weve got cars, trucks and school busses on those

In brief
The Columbus Crew have traded goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum to Sporting Kansas City for a second-round draft pick in 2016 and also acquired goalkeeper Steve Clark from Seattle Sounders FC for a fourth-round pick in the 2015 draft. The deals added to a busy past month in which the club has completely transformed its roster. Clark has played the past four seasons with Honefoss BK, currently in Norways Tippeligaen, the countrys top division. The Oakland University graduate and Michigan native had a record of 30-32-32 with a 1.34 goals-against average and 26 shutouts.

Dodge City slips past Lady Jays 50-46

DODGE CITY After seeing an 8-point third-quarter lead evaporate against Dodge City, the Junction City Girls basketball team desperately needed something anything to break its way. The Blue Jays found its fortuitous bounce when Dodge citys Brianna Bradshaw missed both her free throws with the game tied 46-46 and less than a minute remaining. But instead of crashing down toward the hoop to collect the rebound, the Junction City players allowed Bradshaw to slip past them. She grabbed the AK IA rebound and put it F AIN back up to give her team a 2-point lead. Junction City couldnt respond, falling 50-46 Saturday afternoon. We had a girl that missed an assignment, Junction City coach Nate Parks said. Our boxing out right now is we need to make sure the person on the outside is boxing out the shooter and she forgot at a crucial time for us. The collapse came after Junction City dug itself out of an early deficit. The Blue Jays fell behind 11-2 early in the contest before mounting a comeback. Sophomore AKia Fain and senior Kori Kamm refused to let Junction fall out of contention, scoring six and five points respectively in the first quarter. When halftime rolled around, the score was knotted 25-25. Parks said his team began taking better care of the ball and made smarter passes as they overtook Dodge City for the lead in the third quarter. Please see Blue


Peyton Manning says hes not sure hes deserving of the 2013 Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year honor but is glad to be in such elite company that includes the likes of former Tennessee womens basketball coach Pat Summitt. The Broncos quarterback was recognized at a banquet at Sports Authority Field on Monday night. Manning has led Denver to an 11-3 record this season, his second with the Broncos after missing the 2011 season with Indianapolis because of neck troubles that affected his right triceps. He has thrown 47 touchdown passes, three shy of Tom Bradys NFL season record, with two games remaining. Manning is the fourth NFL quarterback to take the honor in the past nine years, following Brady in 2005, Brett Favre in 2007 and Drew Brees in 2010. LeBron James was the winner last year.

Chiefs headed to playoffs, still have West hopes


AP Sports Writer
KANSAS CITY In the span of a year, the Kansas City Chiefs went from being a franchise in disarray to one with the best record in the AFC and a shot at winning their division with two regular-season games left. Its hard to believe even for those in the midst of it. You cant really explain it by words, said linebacker Derrick Johnson. Its a feeling that not everybody has, and to go through what we went through last year and to be in this situation to do some big things making the playoffs before the season is over, its great. The Chiefs punched their ticket to the postseason with a 56-31 victory at Oakland on Sunday, one

that pushed their franchise-best turnaround to nine games. Kansas City (11-3) also moved into a tie with Denver atop the AFC West, though the Broncos hold the tiebreaker by virtue of a season sweep. Still, if the Broncos stumble in one of their two remaining games at lowly Houston and Oakland and the Chiefs beat Indianapolis and San Diego, it would be Kansas City thats home for the playoffs. The way this season has gone, even the most remote possibility is still possible. This team is wired maybe a little different, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Monday. I think theyre going to finish out strong no matter what the outcome is. I feel as a coach you tell them to go get them, theyll go get them. I kind of feel theyre

wired that way. That wasnt the way they were wired before Reids arrival. While the Chiefs have churned through their roster, about half of which is new this season, most of the key players remain from that 2-14 team. Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry and Dwayne Bowe were all part of the most forgettable season in franchise history, one that resulted in the firing of coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli and an overhaul of the entire front office. Shortly after Reid was hired, John Dorsey was brought in as the GM, and team owner Clark Hunt vowed to take a more hands-on role with the organization. The results have been nothing short of spectacular: The Chiefs are heading to the playoffs for just the second time since 2006, Arrowhead Stadium is packed and theres a buzz throughout the city. That just shows you how hard work pays off, Charles said, and every guy in that locker room has worked their tail off. ... Thats what I told those guys, Hard work pays off. The performance by the Chiefs on Sunday may have been the most impressive yet. While the defense gave up big chunks of yardage,

Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, left, shakes hands with Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford (12) Sunday in Oakland, Calif.
it also picked off five passes and forced seven turnovers. Berry had two of those picks and returned one of them for a touchdown, the 11th time that Kansas City has gotten a TD from defense or special teams this season. The only teams with more? The Cardinals (12) in 2010 and Seahawks (13) in 1998. Alex Smith was 17 of 20 for 287 yards and five touchdowns without an interception, making him just the second Chiefs quarterback with a perfect quarterback rating. Trent Green did it on Sept. 29, 2002. Then there is Charles, who made a mockery of the Raiders defense. He touched the ball 16 times but still piled up five touchdowns. He had 195 yards receiving, the fifth-most by a running back in NFL history, and his TD total was tied for the fourth-most in league history. As you know, thats a tough position to play, Reid said, and this time of year, you see running backs, their production goes down a bit, and hes been able to maintain a high level. The Chiefs put up all that offense despite missing starting left tackle Branden Albert, tight end Anthony Fasano and slot receiver Dexter McCluster due to injuries. All three of them, along with pass rusher Justin Houston, could be back for Sundays game against the Colts. Reid said he wouldnt hold anybody out who is ready to play, even though the Chiefs are already in the playoffs. After all, theres still a division title to chase. If the guys can play, theyre going to play, he said. The rest of our season is as important to us as the beginning of our season. Were not backing off on anything there.

important it is to get in the gym and shoot, Weber said. Hes really trying to learn how to move without the ball, read screens, hes really starting to make some good passes in practice. Hes just got to be a little more patient. I think he gets going and he thinks he can score every time. While the freshman adjusted naturally on offense, recently his biggest strides have come on the defensive end of the court. Hes turned his attention to becoming an all-around basketball player. Coming back from Puerto Rico and watching film, I wasnt impressed with my defense, Foster said. Its the little things when the ball is away from me Ive got to be in my stance and then the on-ball defense so my whole focus is turning on defense too. With a little more than six minutes remaining in the game, Spradling rose up and sank a three. The bucket made Kansas States score double that of the visitors, 62-31. Spradling finished the game with a season-high 14 points. More importantly, the Wildcats primary ball handler and his teammates are beginning to find a rhythm as the chemistry is growing. The first couple of games I felt like Id give it up and would just stand around and wouldnt get it back, Spradling said. Now Im starting to learn it and my teammates are also starting to learn me and where Im comfortable and get it back to me. The Wildcats showed poise on offense, working the shot clock and moving the ball around Troys zone. Kansas State had 24 assists on 28 baskets. Our zone offense, we had been so far out (and) you cant feed it if youre so far out there, theres no angle, Weber said. We really talked about flattening the zone out, swinging it, now getting it inside (and) move the defense. We went high-post to lowpost a couple of times (and) got some lay-ups. Kansas State has neutral-site games against Gonzaga in Wichita and Tulane in New York before finishing its non-conference slate at home on New Years Eve against George Washington. Weber compared the final stretch before conference play as his teams final exams before a new semester starts. The last time they played in Wichita against West Virginia they talked about how great the crowd was, he said. So itd be nice to have a great crowd there and use it as an energizer and see if we can pick up a win against a top-rated team.

Kansas State guard Omari Lawrence saves the ball from going out of bounds against Troy Sunday.
Rains scored four points apiece. Junction City (1-2) will try to return to its winning ways when it hosts Hays tonight. It should be something where if the effort is there and we dont have the mental breakdowns we should be able to be successful, Parks said. Its something that were going to work on, not making those mistakes and making sure we get a win at home. The high school is encouraging fans to show their support and celebrate the holiday season by wearing tacky or ugly Christmas sweaters.

Fain scored 11 points before fouling out near the end of the game. Kamm scored 18 points to lead the Blue Jays for the second consecutive night. We try to make it an emphasis that were getting the ball inside to (Kamm), Parks said. And as far as right now, the two teams that we played against were fairly small inside so we tried to take advantage of that. But the Blue Jays couldnt hold

onto the four-point advantage it held entering the fourth 42-38. Junction Citys offense dried up as the team scored just four points all from the charity stripe in the final period. I think it was more of the stress, Parks said. They were scrambling to try and get back into the game and we let the pressure get to us. We need to make sure we are securing and finishing the game. Those are the things the girls need to understand is that time and score a little better. Senior Shadaja Gamble added six points in the game and sophomore guards Abryana Dixon and Kealee


Royals announce deal for Infante

Associated Press
Johnson and Miguel Tejada combined to hit just .243 with four home runs, none of them doing enough to win the job on a full-time basis for next season. Bonifacio was the most likely option, but hell instead slide into a utility role thanks to his ability to play around the infield along with the outfield. Infante will primarily play second base, though he also has the ability to play several infield positions and the outfield. Infante, who turns 32 on Dec. 26, played exclusively at second base for Detroit last season. He hit .318 with 10 homers and 51 RBIs in 118 games. He received substantial interest from the New York Yankees, who were seeking a replacement for Robinson Cano. But the Yankees were hesitant to give Infante more than three years, and the Royals gave him an extra year while tacking on the club option to lure him to Kansas City. The Royals are certainly familiar with Infante from having watched him play for their AL Central rival Detroit. He came up with the Tigers in 2002, and then was traded to the Cubs and

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Kansas City Royals filled the most glaring hole in their roster Monday night when they finalized a $30.25 million, four-year deal with Omar Infante to become their primary second baseman. The agreement, which includes a club option for 2018, was reached last Friday. Infante will be introduced during a news conference Tuesday at Kauffman Stadium. The notoriously frugal Royals have been aggressive this offseason after posting their best record in more than two decades at 86-76. They already have signed left-hander Jason Vargas to a $32 million, four-year contract and traded reliever Will Smith to the Milwaukee Brewers for outfielder Norichika Aoki. Vargas and Aoki filled two major needs, but Infante may plug the most vexing one. The Royals churned through six players last season Emilio Bonifacio, Jamey Carroll, Chris Getz, Johnny Giavotella, Elliot

Ellis, Embiid lead No. 13 KU past New Mexico


Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Joel Embiid had just picked up his second foul, and like so many other games this season, he knew he was going to be spending the rest of the first half sitting on the Kansas bench. The 7-foot freshman vowed to make up for it in the second half. Embiid scored 16 of his career-high 18 points over the final 20 minutes, leading the No. 13 Jayhawks to an 80-63 victory over New Mexico on Saturday night that ended a two-game skid. I was frustrated, even though I didnt think the second one was a foul, said Embiid, a native of Cameroon whos only been playing basketball for a few years. Yeah, I wanted it bad, and they wanted to throw me the ball and let me score, and thats what I needed to do.

Perry Ellis scored 21 points and Andrew Wiggins, despite dealing with foul trouble all night, added 11 for the Jayhawks (7-3), who led 39-38 at halftime before using two big runs to put it away. It was the Jayhawks ninth straight win at the Sprint Center, including their run to last years Big 12 tournament title. After dropping games at Colorado and Florida, the win also kept Kansas from losing three straight non-conference games for the first time since the 1982-83 season. We knew we had to hit them first, said the Jayhawks Wayne Selden, who finished with 10 points. That was our main goal, be the first one on the floor and be the most aggressive. Cameron Bairstow and Kendall Williams had 24 points apiece for New Mexico (7-2), but that was about it for the Lobos. Alex Kirk,

who came into the game averaging 18.6 points, was held to just five on 2-for-8 shooting before fouling out with 2:53 remaining in the game. New Mexico was just 2 of 14 from beyond the arc. We played really well in the first half, but I thought Kansas played really good. I thought that was the best offensive game Kansas has played all year, New Mexico coach Craig Neal said. We got into some foul trouble and did some things we werent used to doing, and we have to improve on that. The Jayhawks likewise struggled with foul trouble in the first half, depriving coach Bill Self of Ellis, Embiid and Jamari Traylor for long periods of time. That allowed the 6-foot-9 Bairstow to go to work inside, scoring on an array of putbacks and spin moves. The senior from Bris-

bane, Australia, had 16 points at the break. We wanted to put them in a position to really feel pressure, Bairstow said. The Lobos got within one at halftime on a buzzerbeating basket by Arthur Edwards, but Kansas quickly seized control with a 16-4 run to start the second half. Embiid had nine points and Ellis the other seven during the spurt, but it was really fueled by the Jayhawks defense, which finally slowed down Bairstow and Williams on the other end. The Lobos chipped away at their 55-42 deficit, most of the surge coming from the foul line. By the time Williams converted a four-point play, New Mexico had managed to scrap and claw to 63-58 with 8:03 left, and briefly silence a crowd heavily in favor of Kansas.

Hutchinson said. Those lessons translate to every match Hutchinson finds himself in. Wilson won his division after finishing second the weekend before in Gardner-Edgerton. Last week was a little new to him, being in the finals with the lights and everything, Laster said. But this time he was ready. In fact he went out and pinned his final guy, which was a wrestler from No.1 ranked Garden City. Hutchinson is one of a number of underclassmen who have stepped up early in the season for the Blue Jays, who currently are wrestling without three of their returning state qualifiers from last season. Of the six Blue Jays to medal, five are underclassmen. The youngsters helped Junction City finish fourth overall on the weekend in a tournament that featured the No. 1 ranked team from 6A, 4A and 1-3A. Laster said hes real impressed with the way his younger guys have stepped up. Im hoping they realize this is a team sport and that were not built off of just one guy or two guys and that other guys have to step it up, Laster said. And thats what were seeing right now, some of the young guys getting a chance to wrestle and step up. Freshman Gary Joint won the 106-pound division. Wrestling is ingrained in Joints blood. His uncle is three-time state champion. He just wrestled fundamentally sound, Laster said. And he had the mental toughness that he wanted to go into the tournament and

us. Facing a stiff 3-2 zone, Junction City was able to break the Red Demons defense with deft shooting. Early in the game, senior Danny Thornton drained a trey to extend the lead to 7-3. Seniors Jonathan Wilds and Jake Adkins as well as junior Josh Bryan also knocked down threes to stretch the Dodge City defense. Thornton led the team with 13 points and Wilds added 11 of his own in the contest. Despite some success, Battle still believes his team has a lot of room for offensive improvement, especially against strong zones. Danny (Thornton)s three, the first time they ran the 3-2, was pretty big, he said. And thats really the key, you can draw up whatever you want but in the end youve got to hit shots. We didnt hit a lot of shots today but we hit timely shots. But no matter what happens with the offense, Battle wants his team to keep its eyes on playing stout defense. For two-day road trip, Junction Citys opponents averaged just 24 points per game. An old, wise referee once said offense comes and goes but defense doesnt take a night off, Battle said. When youre not shooting the basketball well, you can still find ways to stay in the game and compete. And thats really what were doing. Junction City returns home tonight to host Hays. Its the Blue Jays only home game before winter break. Hays will bring a tall lineup which really will challenge Battles teams defense. Theyve got three kids who can shoot the basketball and theyre about 10-deep, he said. Theyre a good team, theres a reason theyre No. 4, No. 5 in 5A. They went to the state tournament last year and that type of success is infectious. Despite the success, Battle isnt looking too much into third quarter trends or (Saturday) we were 1-0, Battles said. I dont know what a winning streak feels like. Im very proud of the way our guys played today. They bounced back from a night where they really had to work hard on defense and they responded defensively very well again.

Junction Citys Aryus Jones wrestles in the Clay Center tournament Saturday.
win it. Sophomore Gabe Padilla finshed third in the 120-pound division. He had his opponent on his back before he was reversed onto his back, ultimately losing the pool match by two points. The loss prevented him from reaching the finals, but Padilla recovered to win his match in the medal round. Laster called the event very unusual. Sophomore Lake Deam finished fourth in the 113-pound division. Freshman Aryus Jones, who was wrestling in his first high school tournament, also finished fourth. Aryus, hes another ninth grader that I knew would have some success coming up here, Laster said. But that was his first outing and I knew with that being his first outing he was lacking some mat experience. But Im looking for some great things from him as we go down the road.

Ethan Padway The Daily Union

Junior Jake Bazan finished his pool play with a 4-1 record and found himself in a three-way tie for first. He lost out on tiebreakers, which prevented him from a shot at a medal. However, he took it in stride and won his final match to finish fifth. Wilson said hes seen a lot of improvement from his teammates in just the one week removed from their last tournament. This weekend, Junction City heads to Emporia, a tournament which will feature more 6A schools. Laster likes what hes seen so far after tossing his young wrestlers into the fire early in the season. Im hoping it builds confidence, he said. Because thats what I tell theses guys, these arent the wins that count, the wins that count are the ones at regionals and state. Im just hoping they can learn from this success and be able to build off it.
