first_imgCommentary by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Five Cueball thoughts for Nov. 16, 2014… 3. The football team…Nothing quite stresses me more with this website than when a high school football debate develops (unless its girls basketball). I automatically go into hiding, knowing some of my closest friends are looking to shoot me.As always, Sumner Newscow does not allow for personal attacks on individuals, especially those who are high school athletes (see comment policy here). However, the gray area I wrestle with is whether a high school “team” should be scrutinized. After all these are kids.The players shouldn’t. The program should. Here’s why….The Wellington High School football program is an interesting dynamic. The Crusaders are the town team. A tremendous amount of local resources are poured into the program each fall: from the long hours of the coaching staff, to investments by the business community, to the number of local media covering the team – which is unmatched in the state of Kansas.The football team is also representing the community to the state of Kansas at large. The program’s importance can’t be understated.It is therefore the right of our citizens to have a say with how the football team is operated and projected. And, yes, at its heart winning and losing means everything.As this site’s manager I must weigh what is good relevant debate and what is derogatory nonsense. There is a fine line especially with emotions running deep on various sides of the issue.The reality is nothing brings the community together, quite like a good football season. Wellington has passion, an intense interest, and a tradition that few other high school towns have in Kansas.Sometimes it is good to talk about it.Nevertheless, I implore you to please be civil when wading in on the message board below: whether it’s the football team, the city hall, the hospital or any local issue that comes our way. A good argument is best served with good manners and true knowledge on the subject. 5. Shout out of the week… I’m going to give it to all who were involved with the Wellington Veteran’s Day program. It was sensational. The Wellington High School band was as good as I ever heard it. I loved the choir music. The speakers were fabulous.If you didn’t leave Tuesday’s program with goose bumps and a renewed sense of pride and spirit, you may need to check your pulse. You may be dead.Cueball extra…Quinn’s thoughts…Hi! It’s that time again when I douse you with my horrific stupidity so lets go!Quinn McCueAlso I now have a structure for my thoughts! The first two are gonna be the events that happened during the past week. 2. Today it finally snowed and I got really over excited. Here’s the story. I woke up looking fabulous as usual. Then I look outside and there was snow. So I run downstairs and jump outside into the snow with just my pajamas on. I regret it horribly. 5.Contest Thought! Suessical Cast Members not eligible for entry! What was the name of the Black bottom eagle in the Suessical that took place last weekend? Send in your answer at mccueq.sumnernewscow@gmail.com. First one to answer correctly wins a Sumner Newscow T-shirt! 1. Long lost e-mail…This week when cleaning out e-mails for the first time in years, I stumbled across an e-mail written on January 25, 2013, by my CPA neighbor Lonnie Cooper. I ws hoping to do a story on the local reaction to the latest Sam Brownback tax cuts. The story, like many I plan, didn’t get written.But reading this e-mail this week made me realize how valid the fears of two years ago has come to fruition.I’ll share this January, 2013 e-mail now: “Tracy,The potential loss of the property tax deduction for state income tax purposes is just the beginning of the adjustments the state will need to make to keep from going broke in the next year or two.  This self-inflicted budget crisis is a bet by Governor Brownback that drastically lower income taxes on Kansas business will either grow the economy enough to make up for the cuts, and/or that the crisis itself will force budget cuts that would not otherwise be made.As for your question, I’ll use the numbers from your 11/26/12 column on county property taxes (see story here).  In that column, you stated that due to Sumner County’s drop in its mill levy, the taxes on a hypothetical $100,000 home would drop from $179 from $2,042 to $1,863.Assuming that the taxpayer itemized his deductions on his federal return, the Kansas income tax savings on the $1,863 deduction under the 2013 Kansas rate (4.9%) would be $91.  So that would be the out of pocket cost to losing the property tax deduction.However, the top Kansas rate dropped from 6.45% in 2012 to 4.9% in 2013, so there would have also been a Kansas tax savings from the tax cut, probably more than the loss from not allowing the property tax deduction.  For taxpayers with non-wage business income,  the Kansas rate on that income is 0% for 2013, so there will be a huge tax decrease for those taxpayers.To put it another way, by eliminating the tax on 191,000 Kansas businesses (the governor’s number), the money has to come from somewhere.  So, the State will probably keep the sales tax rate up, cut state funding for schools and other entities and eliminate the property tax and other deductions.  The big winners are those with farm, business, rental or even oil royalty owners who now pay $0 Kansas income tax on that income, while wage earners, pensioners and investors do not enjoy the same benefit on their income.  The cuts to the schools and other governments will probably force them to raise property taxes or cut services.  So whether you benefit from the governor’s plan depends on your circumstances.It will be interesting to see how it all works out.”Well, we are about to embark on 2015, and this Kansas City Star article features financial experts projecting a $1 billion shortfall in 2015 and 2016 for the state of Kansas http://www.kansascity.com/news/government-politics/article3729756.html.Mr. Cooper’s prognostication appears to be ringing true. 1. I got a new fan for my room about a month ago and Friday I finally built it. Apparently I get a remote with it and I was more exited then I should’ve been. I can already tell my productivity levels are gonna drop 99.999% just messing with that fan. 2. The Election in a nutshell …Political analysts have all kinds of theories on why people continue to vote in incumbents despite a government that doesn’t seem to be working.I can sum it up pretty quickly with the clip below.This is from the great 1970s movie Animal House. Just substitute the incumbent politician giving it to the average voter… 6. Extra thought! If I made you tube videos would you watch it?Follow us on Twitter. 4. This is where I choose one question to answer from you guy about me! To have your question have a chance to be answered just leave it in the comments with the prefix “Q/A” and I will randomly choose one to answer! 3. This is where you get to pick  a topic that you want me to write about! Just leave a comment of want you want written with the prefix “topic:”. I will pick one every week. My e-mail is below! 4. Saint Bishop Wellington…I was looking at the high school football playoff scores from this weekend… Bishop Miege won big, Bishop Carroll was victorious again, Topeka Hayden was back in the final four, etc., etc., etc.Anyone who doesn’t think the private institutions have an advantage over the public schools when it comes to athletics, is not dealing in reality.So I have a solution for Wellington. We should rename our school “Saint Bishop Wellington,” or “Wellington Private Institution for Learning (Wellington Private for short). Then we should offer free scholarships to all the other surrounding towns best athletes and/or hire their parents to do something in Wellington – like be the assistant sixth grade basketball coach – or file things.Wellington would be back to winning state championships in no time!

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — By a 4-0 vote, the Wellington City Council approved five resolutions from paving to sewer to water that effectively moves the “Short Second Addition” development project on the fast track to reality.The Short Land Company of Oxford are developing a 22-lot housing subdivision, directly south of the Wal-mart Super Center which include housing duplexes and single residential homes. Included in the resolutions is the contractor’s agreement between the Short family and the City of Wellington- which is listed as the “developer” of the project.The projected cost of the project is $584,000 with the developer assuming $489,000. The City will pick up the other $86,000 that includes $55,000 for water and $30,000 for electrical upgrades.The city will install streets, drainage systems, sanitary sewer laterals an waters lines with prepaid special assessments.According to the developer’s agreement approved, the following stipulations will need to be met:•Improvements to William Drive, the north/south road on the east edge of Wal-Mart parking lot leading to the development will be paid by the developer.•The developer will pay 100 percent of the design cost and the cost of construction of East 12th St. – a new road running through the proposed addition.•The cost of sewer mains, manholes, lift stations and sewer lines shall be charged 100 percent against the improvement district.•The cost of water lines will be 50 percent paid through the city of Wellington and the 50 percent through the developer.•The city shall pay 100 percent the cost of extending electric service.•The drainage improvements to be charged at 100 percent to the developer.•Sidewalks in the development will be 100 percent charged to the developer.City financial advisor John Haas said this is an agreement that shows little risk to the city.“I’m not sure I have ever been related to a project where financing is not supplied by the city,” Haas said.Normally, a developer will pay back the city through special assessments to property owners over a certain length of time. This deal stipulates that these costs to the developer will have “pre-paid assessments.” However, according to the agreement, if the Shorts fail to provide these pre-paid assessments then the city will levy the taxes periodically over a 15-year time period.Wellington council member John Tracy expressed concern that the city has entered into agreements with developers in the past, only to lead to perilous results for the governing body in the future – i.e. Settler’s Creek in east Wellington.Tracy said he is satisfied with this agreement.“As long as the city is not getting stuck with hundreds of thousands of dollars, I am fine with it,” Tracy said.•••••Kelly Green and John Brand did not attend the meeting. Green was returning from a trip in Mexico while Brand was in Texas because of a business trip.•••••Little interest in boardsInterest in serving on the Combined Trade Board, Library Board and Park Board have been tepid to almost non existent.The governing board sent out a public service announcement concerning open positions for three advisory boards which will end on April 30, 2015. The council is looking to fill four year terms for one position on the combined trade board, two positions on the park board and two positions on the library board.In the PSA announcement, the deadline for these applications were Dec. 31. However, Wellington City Clerk Shane Shields said so far the city has only received one application for the park board, and none for either the combined trade board or the two library boards.“If there are insufficient applications, then the ordinance reads that the city council can solicit people to serve on those boards until the last day of February,” Shields said. “People can also apply until then.”Follow us on Twitter.

first_img“If you look at the results — I start with the competition always — our competition right now on the intermediate tracks and the superspeedways, I believe, is the best racing we’ve ever seen. I’ll start with myself as a fan. I love watching and am super excited when we get to the intermediate tracks and superspeedways, the type of racing we are going to see.”MORE: Updates, highlights from Homestead playoff racePhelps also shared that the quality of competition has had a positive effect on the viewership.”The results from the competition side are working from a consumption standpoint,” he said. “If you look at the fans, what the fans are doing, how they’re responding to it, if you look apples to apples, our ratings are up 4 percent this year.  All of sports is down 9 percent; we’re plus 4 percent.”Importantly, our share is plus 9, so there are fewer people watching television in all sports, obviously, but fewer people watching television overall. So when they were watching, not only did they watch more NASCAR, from a ratings standpoint, but when they were tuned in, they were watching more NASCAR.  We were taking share from someone else, which is important. That’s television.”Phelps also extolled the unprecedented level of communication and cooperation across the stock car racing industry.”I’ve been teased a little bit about using the word ‘collaboration’ too much,” Phelps said. “I don’t think you can use that word too much, frankly. It’s building. The collaboration of this industry is better than it’s ever been. Really excited about where that is.”That doesn’t mean, however, that there isn’t room for improvement in the product. Phelps acknowledged that NASCAR will work during the offseason to enhance the quality of racing on tracks of one mile and shorter.That’s particularly important, given that ISM Raceway in Phoenix is set to host next year’s Championship 4 race.”Do I think we need to work with our industry, Goodyear, our race teams, our OEM (original equipment manufacturer) partners to improve what we’re seeing on the short tracks?” Phelps asked. “I do. We’re going to do that in the offseason, for sure.”As his first full season at NASCAR’s helm concludes, Phelps indicated there has been strong interest from other car makers in joining Ford, Chevrolet and Toyota as competing brands in the sport.”We had some folks out in Phoenix (last week) that were interested in coming into the sport,” Phelps said. “It’s important for us. We are working hard to try to determine kind of the timing of that, what that looks like, and what that partnership would look like moving forward bringing someone in.”The world is a lot different than it was. We’re trying to make it as easy as possible to have an OEM come in, plug in, and start to compete on the racetrack.”Phelps also said that some form of electrification would be part of NASCAR’s engine architecture in the future and that the ability to attract new OEMs to the sport would be dependent on running engines that maintained relevance to those in production cars. “This engine is going to sound significantly the same as whatever the current engine is,” Phelps said. “We’re not going to have a bunch of electric cars going around. That’s not what this is about. It’s about having a relevant engine to our OE partners, both the existing Ford, Chevy and Toyota, as well as whoever the new OEs that we’re looking at.”With Monster Energy currently in its final year as sponsor of NASCAR’s premier series, Phelps said NASCAR anticipates announcements with respect to its new sponsorship model when the industry celebrates the new Cup champion in Nashville in early December.Reid Spencer writes for the NASCAR Wire Service. HOMESTEAD, Fla. — The racing on intermediate tracks has never been better; ratings are up, bucking a trend among other major sports; and collaboration between stakeholders is at an all-time high.That was the assessment of Steve Phelps, who took questions from the media on Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway before the Ford EcoBoost 400, the race that would decide the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion.last_img read more


first_imgAnthony Joshua wanted to show the “sweet science” of boxing as he put together a controlled performance to outpoint Andy Ruiz Jr and become a two-time world champion.The British heavyweight regained the WBA (Super), WBO and IBF titles that were sensationally snatched from his grasp by the same opponent earlier this year, winning their rematch by unanimous decision on Saturday. Ruiz dropped his rival four times to force a seventh-round stoppage in New York back in June, yet never threatened to pull off a repeat result at the Diriyah Arena in Saudi Arabia.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearInstead, Joshua controlled proceedings throughout, boxing behind his jab as he, for the most part, stayed safely out of range. Two of the judges at ringside scored the contest 118-110 in the challenger’s favor, with the other official’s card recording a 119-109 verdict.In his postfight interview, Joshua revealed he fought in such a manner out of respect for Ruiz — and also aimed a shot at those who had suggested he should retire after losing his perfect professional record six months ago.TWO TIME pic.twitter.com/CutWIGDfD8— Anthony Joshua (@anthonyfjoshua) December 7, 2019″A man like me makes no excuses, this is about boxing, I’m used to knocking guys out. I got caught last time, no excuses, I gave him the credit,” the 30-year-old told Sky Sports Box Office.”I respect Andy and his trainer [Manny Robles] so much, I wanted to show the sweet science of this lovely sport. Stay hungry, stay humble — I’m humble in defeat and will stay humble in victory.”It is all about preparation. One day, when I release a book, I will talk through my career. Careers are all about experience; there is no losing and no winning, it is about creating memories in this great game we all love. “I took my ‘L’ and bounced back. Everyone can do it — life is a roller coaster. What do you want me to do? Give up? I hear certain people saying I should retire. Come on, man. Please, respect us, this is what we love to do.”Promoter Eddie Hearn was delighted to see Joshua prove his critics wrong after the “humiliation” he suffered in his American debut. “That is beautiful. They wrote him off — they said he was all hype,” Hearn said. “He had to come back from humiliation in Madison Square Garden. He is a two-time heavyweight champion of the world, give him the respect [because] he is a great individual.”last_img read more


first_imgWe had a snow game last week, but it ultimately didn’t have a huge effect on the passing or kicking games in that contest. Looking ahead to the Week 16 weather forecast, we shouldn’t have to worry about snow, but there is some wind, rain, and cold that could have a slight affect on start ’em, sit ’em calls for the fantasy football championship round. Before we break down the Week 16 forecast, here’s a reminder that if you have any questions about sports weather or how weather could impact play (and, potentially, your fantasy, DFS, and gambling decisions), don’t hesitate to reach out on Twitter @KevinRothWx or check our hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders.
