(Continued from Page 1) foreign accent, said after sentencing that he decided to leave his native country because he was ordered to give steroids to the 13- and 14-year- olds he was coaching. Encev said he spoke out against the government's policies on the use of steroids, muscle building drugs, and eventually had to leave his coaching position because of the controversy. "I give all my life for my country and they just throw me out because I tell the truth,"Encev said. Bitter, he said he took advantage of the opportunity to defect while traveling as a sponsor with a team in Italy. "They don't care about you," he said of the government. "They use you. They squeeze you and then throw you away." He said he came to the United States from Italy and was granted political asylum. The Immigration and Naturalization Service told The Journal that Encev is a permanent resident of this country but did not give further information because of privacy regulations. Encev said he tried to get into coaching, but found the American athletic system to be different so he trained to become an automobile mechanic. He said he operated a foreign automobile repair shop in Palm Springs, Calif., specializing in the repair of expensive foreign cars. He said he lost the business when he traveled to Kuwait and Switzerland and, upon his return, decided to go to Florida, the home of a relative who also defected from Bulgaria. It was that cross-country journey from California to Florida in a van that brought Encev to Kansas. "I never expected it to be this cold," he said in an interview Friday in a court services office. He said it was too cold to sleep in his van and he became worried he would not be able to get to Florida on the $275 he had left. He said he stopped in Salina to do his laundry and noticed the locks on the coin-operated washing machines were the same type used on the burglary alarms of the expensive cars he had repaired as a mechanic. Encev said he used his tools to break into the machines. A witness to the crime called police and Encev was apprehended soon after- Black said he attempted to verify his client's story. He learned there had been a car repair shop at Palm Springs bearing the name Encev gave. Black said his client knew the phone number and address of that business and also was familiar with the parts and prices of parts for Black's BMW. An application for diversion for Encev, which would delay prosecution of the case and result in eventual dismissal if no other laws are violated, was denied by the prosecution because police found tools in his van that could be used as burglary tools. However, police checks with the National Crime Information Computer and the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed there were no outstanding warrants for Encev's arrest. "I have never been in jail before," Encev said. "I have been in Russia and know how police works over there." Encev said he learned inmates here have rights. Law enforcement officers treated him courteously and called him "sir," Encev said. He described the judge as understanding. Although he wishes he had not stopped in Salina, Encev said of his problem here: "It is not Salina's fault, it is my fault." Correction KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The father of Sgt. Mark Brady expressed overwhelming relief Friday at the news that his son decided at the last minute not to get on a plane that later crashed, killing 248 fellow soldiers. "We can't believe our own good fortune, but our hearts go out to all of those other folks," said Frank Brady, who with Mark's stepmother, Donna, endured four hours of waiting Thursday before their 21-year-old son called from Egypt to say that he had never bqarded the jet that crashed in Newfoundland. "I had become desperate and Donna was so distraught," Frank Brady said. "Donna picked up the telephone, and it was a long distance call from an Egyptian operator who asked if this was Missouri. I heard her scream and I picked up the other phone and it was Mark. Oh, my God." "All of Mark's friends were killed," his father said. "Mark is just crushed because of the loss of all of his friends." Mark Brady and another man volunteered to wait behind when there wasn't enough room for all who wanted to go, his father said. "Apparently some other folks needed to get home, it was either an emergency or they had families. Mark and the other man stayed behind," and planning to fly home later, the elder Brady said. At 6:30 a.m. Thursday, the couple was jolted awake by the news from Gander on a clock radio. "We woke up to hear that the plane had gone down," he said. "We knew that Mark was supposed to be on that plane.... It was terrible." Then the family learned from a Fort Campbell official that Mark might have been bumped from the flight, but there was no way to confirm it. "That made it worse," his father said. /Sunflower (Continued from Page 1) nounced with the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation purchasing at discount a majority of Sunflower's debt, thus replacing the federal Rural Electrification Administration as primary secured lender. Sunflower said a rate increase is needed to give the utility a workable cash flow for the next five years. Armstrong said a $4.26 million increase appears necessary to meet those requirements and keep Sunflower out of bankruptcy court. He said the additional money could stabilize power rates in western Kansas for the next five years, but only with careful management by Sunflower. In its application, Sunflower officials said they didn't expect to need another rate increase for five years, at which time they probably would return to the KCC for an additional $12 million. Armstrong also expressed doubts about the utility's request to pass on to ratepayers anticipated higher interest costs through an automatic monthly interest cost adjustment. Fifty percent of Sunflower's costs are interest-related. The cost of the utility's borrowed money could rise from the present 9.125 percent to 10 percent, an increase of more than $3 million a year, KCC spokesman Gary Haden said. "We think (granting such a request) would set a bad precedent," he said of Sunflower's interest cost adjustment proposal. "All the other utilities will want to do the same thing, plus it doesn't provide any incentive for Sunflower to cut other costs." He said the KCC staff questions the ability of Sunflower management to save the utility, even with the recommended rate increase. "There's no doubt Sunflower is in bad financial shape and staff recognizes there are some real perils," Haden said. One issue not addressed in Friday's testimony was power usage in western Kansas. As Sunflower rates have climbed to among the more expensive in the nation, more and more customers — many of them farm irrigators caught in an economic depression in agriculture—have cut back on usage. In their pre-filed testimony, Sunflower officials said the utility has reached a period of stability in power demand. Others question the statement, however. The City of Goodland, for example, has asked the KCC to approve a "wheeling contract," which would allow the town to abandon the Sunflower system and purchase power from suppliers in Nebraska. The power would be moved across Sunflower lines. "At this point we would break even, but as Sunflower continued to raise its rates, the better off we would be," Goodland City Manager Keith Jantz said. "There's no pie-in- the-sky about this. We're trying to protect ourselves from future rate increases. Haden said the usage issue probably will be examined when Sunflower files a permanent rate case, probably after the first of the year. The utility has asked the KCC to make a decision on the emergency increase by Dec. 31. Barbara Jessup, chairman of the Southwest Consumers Group, said "drastic steps" need to be taken "before Sunflower bankrupts western Kansas." She said the situation has been rigged so the KCC is the fall guy, the agency responsible for a Sunflower bankruptcy if it doesn't grant a rate increase. "We need to relieve the political pressure on the commission," she said. "A year ago Sunflower was going bankrupt and here we are a year later and Sunflower is still going bankrupt. Sunflower has been going bankrupt since 1981." Jessup's Moscow-based organization and another consumer group in northwest Kansas have threatened legal action if the KCC grants the Sunflower rate request. "What else can we do?" Jessup said. "We can't get rid of the boards. We can't get rid of the management. What can we do to make Sunflower accountable? At some point we're going to have to hold the money back." A technical hearing on Sunflower's request is set next Thursday before the KCC. The commission also has scheduled a public hearing at 7 p.m. Thursday in tjie Scott City Elementary School gymnasium for Sunflower consumers.
