LOLO COMPLEX FIRE

Plum Creek hopes to salvage timber Company owns 7,000 out of 11,000 acres burned By ROB CHANEY of the Missoulian

Most of the forest burned in the Lolo Creek Complex fire belonged to Plum Creek Timber Co., which hopes to recover what it can of the blackened trees this fall. “Of the almost 11,000 acres involved, we have just over 7,000 acres within the boundary of that fire,” Plum Creek Northwest regional vice president Tom Ray said. “We will be down there next week to take a look and see what’s See TIMBER, Page A4

Voters to decide on new $10.5M school Ballots to be mailed out Sept. 12 By ALICE MILLER of the Missoulian

LOLO – Counseling is relegated to an old supply closet. A science room has two electrical outlets and no running water. Hallways don’t have lockers or fire suppression systems. Those are just some of the things that would be addressed if voters approve a $10.5 million bond measure to build a new K-4 building on Farm Lane for Lolo Schools.

Bo Reichenbach, a Navy SEAL from Billings, watches with family members Saturday as six members of Frog-X, the United States Navy Parachute Team, drop into Washington-Grizzly Stadium as part of a fundraising effort for Reichenbach, who was injured by an IED in Afghanistan in July 2012.

From 3,000 feet above Washington-Grizzly Stadium, they could hear a roar. And when six U.S. Navy SEALs touched down on the turf near the 50-yard line inside the stadium Saturday night, Bo Reichenbach was there waiting with some 26,292 other fans to show them what Grizzly football was all about. Missoulians and the Grizzlies put on a good show. “They thought it was KURT WILSON/Missoulian awesome,” Reichenbach said of The parachute team members perform a tandem maneuver on the SEALs’ experience after their way into the stadium. they parachuted into the

Congress skeptical of attack Obama’s bid to strike Syria faces resistance from both sides of aisle By MICHAEL DOYLE McClatchy Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration pressed Congress Sunday for an expansive green light to attack Syria, but faced Capitol Hill skepticism from both right and left. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday appeared on five television networks to make the case for military action against the Syrian government for what he said was the use of sarin gas on civilians. “We have learned through samples that were provided to the United States and that have now been tested from first responders in east Damascus (that) hair samples and blood samples have tested positive for signatures of sarin,” Kerry said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “So this case is building and this case will build.” While he worked to convince Congress that the intelligence is accurate about the use of chemical weapons, Congress expressed more skepticism about the wisdom of a potential airstrike as well as the language of the war powers authorization being sought by the White House. A round of briefings and press sessions Sunday led only to congressional promises to rewrite President Barack Obama’s proposal and a reiteration of concerns. “What I’m troubled by is after the strike, the Assad regime is still there,” said Rep. Scott Rigell, R- Va. “Let’s say we

Devin Nunes, RCalif., a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. “President Obama has gone from leading from behind, to not leading at all, to now hiding behind Congress.” Dangerously for Obama, Republican Sens.

Syria dismisses Obama as confused, moves troops By ALBERT AJI and KARIN LAUB Associated Press

DAMASCUS, Syria – Syria on Sunday derided President Barack Obama’s decision to hold off on punitive military strikes, but also took precautions by reportedly moving some troops and military equipment to civilian areas. The Obama administration countered that its case for military action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad is getting stronger, saying it now has evidence that the toxic gas allegedly used in strikes on rebelheld areas was the nerve agent sarin. The administration predicted Sunday it will obtain congressional backing for limited strikes. After days of edging closer to military action against Syria, Obama suddenly announced Saturday he would first seek approval from Congress, which gets back from summer break

Sept. 9. Assad, in turn, tried to project confidence in his escalating showdown with the U.S., saying in comments carried by state media Sunday that Syria is “capable of confronting any external aggression.” From the sidelines, others exhorted the U.S. either to get involved or stay out of the brutal twoand-a-half-year-old conflict that has claimed more than 100,000 lives and displaced millions of people. The Arab League at an emergency meeting in Cairo Sunday called on the United Nations and the international community to take “deterrent” measures under international law to stop the Syrian regime’s crimes, but could not agree on whether to back U.S. military action. Arab foreign ministers at the meeting in their closing statement held the Assad regime responsible for the “heinous” chemical

attack, saying the perpetrators should be tried before an international court “like other war criminals.” At the Vatican, Pope Francis said he would stage a worldwide prayer vigil for Syria on Sept. 7 and called on all sides to lay down their arms. “My heart is deeply wounded by what is happening in Syria and anguished by the dramatic developments” on the horizon, Francis told crowds in St. Peter’s Square, forgoing the usual religious theme of his weekly address. The main Syrian political opposition, which operates largely from exile, warned that Obama would give dictators in Iran, North Korea and elsewhere a free pass to commit atrocities if he does not punish Assad. In the Syrian capital Damascus, some said the reprieve from Washington was only prolonging their torment.

A 29-year-old city resident said he reinforced his window with tape in anticipation of an imminent attack. “I know people who prepared sleeping pills to give to their kids the night of the attack so they can sleep and not be scared,” said the man, who only gave his first name, Nasib, for fear of reprisals. Nearly two weeks after the alleged chemical weapons attacks on areas east and west of Damascus, many unanswered questions remain. Neither the U.S. nor the Syrian regime, which blames rebels for the attacks, has publicly presented proof. Syria’s deputy foreign minister, Faysal Mikdad, claimed Sunday that Obama stepped back from his threat to attack because he lacks evidence of Syrian government involvement in the Aug. 21 attacks. “The hesitation and the

disappointment is so obvious in the words of President Obama yesterday,” Mikdad told reporters in Damascus. “The confusion was clear as well.” In a sharply worded front-page article, the state-run newspaper AlThawra, expressing official thinking, said Obama’s turn-about on military action was “the start of the historic American retreat.” Yet despite the official hubris, there were signs the regime was taking precautions. The main Westernbacked opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, said the army moved troops as well as rocket launchers, artillery and other heavy weapons inside residential neighborhoods in cities nationwide. The coalition said Assad ordered detainees to be moved to military targets for use as human shields against U.S. strikes.

THIS DAY IN HISTORY Today is Monday, Sept. 2, the 245th day of 2013. There are 120 days left in the year. This is Labor Day. Today’s Highlight in History: On September 2, 1945, Japan formally surrendered in ceremonies aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay, ending World War II. On this date: In 1666, the Great Fire of London broke out. In 1789, the United States Treasury Department was established. In 1864, during the Civil War, Union Gen. William T. Sherman’s forces occupied Atlanta. In 1901, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt offered the advice, “Speak softly and carry a big stick” in a speech at the Minnesota State Fair. In 1935, a Labor Day hurricane slammed into the Florida Keys, claiming more than 400 lives. In 1945, Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnam an independent republic. (Ho died on this date in 1969.) In 1963, Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace prevented the integration of Tuskegee High School by encircling the building with state troopers. “The CBS Evening News” with Walter Cronkite was lengthened from 15 to 30 minutes, becoming network television’s first half-hour nightly newscast. In 1972, Dave Wottle of the United States won the men’s 800-meter race at the Munich Summer Olympics. In 1986, a judge in Los Angeles sentenced Cathy Evelyn Smith to three years in prison for involuntary manslaughter for her role in the 1982 drug overdose death of comedian John Belushi. (Smith served 18 months.) In 1993, the United States and Russia formally ended decades of competition in space by agreeing to a joint venture to build a space station. In 1998, a Swissair MD11 jetliner crashed off Nova Scotia, killing all 229 people aboard. Ten years ago: A federal appeals court in San Francisco threw out more than 100 death sentences in Arizona, Montana and Idaho because the inmates had been sent to death row by judges instead of juries.

salvageable. The company had periodically been harvesting on those lands over the past decade, and we had future harvest planned there. That’s going to change.” Plum Creek owns land on both sides of Highway 12 where the fire burned, although its largest holdings are on the north side of the corridor. That remains the most active section of the fire, where steep terrain around Woodman Creek west of Lolo has hindered firefighters’ efforts. The fire also burned 1,947 acres of U.S. Forest Service land and about 2,000 acres of other private property. Ray said Plum Creek personnel worked with the incident command team during the fire’s early days, providing

maps and local knowledge of the landscape and road network. Plum Creek also pays an annual firefighting fee assessment of about 25 cents an acre to the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation that works like insurance on all its approximately 900,000 acres of property in the state. Montana State Forester Bob Harrington said the fee system is similar to programs used in most Rocky Mountain states to support firefighting efforts on private land. The money pays for equipment and training in years when fire activity doesn’t predominate the expenses. Plum Creek also lost about 1,700 acres of timberland in the West Mullan fire near Superior in July. That area will also be assessed for possible salvage logging. “We’ll also look at

what we can do for reforestation,” Ray said. “In some places, we may have natural reseeding coming back. Other places, we’ll look at what we can we do to restore those lands. Aerial reseeding is still a viable option in large fire areas. We have a seed bank of excess seed on hand, if we have large events we need to reforest.” Lolo Creek Complex information officer Dave Schmitt said fire ecologists are getting started on rehabilitation plans for the burn areas and places damaged by fire lines and retardant drops. Property owners along Highway 12 have already started cleaning up burned properties and damaged pastures. Salvage activity could take mature trees for lumber, medium-density fiberboard, or paper pulp. Logs burned too badly may be used as hog fuel at sawmill boilers.

because of the excitement, Reichenbach said. “If people at the stadium had the opportunity (to text donations) like we wanted them to, we would have had at least about $20,000 to $25,000 on the spot,” he said. The Phoenix Patriot Foundation is continuing to accept donations for Reichenbach at phoenixpatriotfoundation .org. People can click the red “donate” button on the site’s homepage to make a donation through PayPal. They should include a note that the money is for Reichenbach, McDermott said. Dozens of businesses, individuals and organizations, including the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation, The Fisher House (Hero Miles), Bitterroot Ford, Outback Steak House, Home Depot and Triple W Equipment, helped make the weekend possible, Hayes said. Reichenbach called the experience “pretty awesome.” Reichenbach will rest for several days in Billings before he heads back to Walter Reed, where he’ll start to practice “running on my running legs.” “That’s the next step,” he said. As he continues to recover, Reichenbach will begin helping nonprofits and charities around the country raise money and awareness about veterans issues. In early September, he’ll be a part of the Never Quit Challenge, a multiday charity jet ski ride on the Atlantic Ocean from Marathon, Fla., to New York City, where they’ll arrive on Sept. 11. The challenge will benefit the Phoenix Patriot Foundation, the Boot Campaign and The Station Foundation.

SEE YOU AT THE GRILL It’s

When it’s finally time for Reichenbach to come home for good, he and Don are planning on beginning work on custom-made home. “I’m a home builder in Billings. What Bo and I decided from Day One,” Don said, “is that he and I would figure out how we can build his own home.”

Wildfire becomes fourth-largest in California history

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) – The wildfire burning in and around Yosemite National Park has become the fourth-largest conflagration in modern

California history, fire officials said Sunday as clouds and higher humidity helped crews further contain the biggest blaze in the United States this year.

San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose combined – on Saturday, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Daniel Berlant said.

The 2-week-old Rim Fire moved up a spot on the state’s list of large wildfires dating back to 1932 when it grew to 348 square miles – an area larger than the cities of

state to reuse greenhouse gasses to increase production, the nation’s largest modern-day American Indian encampment and the home of the “world’s best milkshakes.” Bullock started outside Broadus, lauding the opening of the state’s first oil field to increase production by injecting carbon dioxide into the ground. He said the $350 million project indicated there can be common ground between environmentalists who want to reduce emissions and the industry leaders with whom they’ve often been at odds. Standing before massive buildings holding mammoth pumps and other equipment, Bullock proclaimed the technology as an example of the “need to bring people together to solve our biggest challenges.” From there he took a trip to town, stopping at the Sweet Shoppe in the Copper Moon gift and antique store for a coffee-

A new campus would address space needs of a growing student population in aging buildings, Superintendent Michael Magone said. People can see the building for themselves during an input session in the sixth-grade science room at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12, which is also the day ballots will be mailed to the more than 2,700 active voters in the school district. If voters approve the measure, the new building would alleviate crunched space and aging building and safety concerns at the current Lolo Schools campus on the side of U.S. Highway 93 in Lolo, Magone said. Construction could begin on the new building next spring, and target completion would be fall 2015. Repayment of the bonds would be scheduled over 20 years and cost the owners of homes assessed at $100,000 an additional $125 a year on their taxes, or about $250 for homes assessed at $200,000, Magone said. School leaders have been mulling possible solutions for years in the face of rising student enrollment and an additional 100 students projected over the next decade, Magone said. “Now we’re at the point that we’re pretty much

Sen. Bruce Tutvedt called Bullock “a breath of fresh air.” The Kalispell Republican said Bullock “is much more approachable” than Schweitzer “and seems to be willing to listen.” Tutvedt said he didn’t agree with all of the vetoes, but “the governor has reached out and said he wants to discuss some of them and come back next session.” He said he expects they will “find some positive results” next time around. Veteran Democratic state Sen. Dave Wanzenried declined to make a direct comparison but said Bullock has impressed him as a thoughtful listener, willing to consider a range of Bullock immediately viewpoints. The Missoula Democrat faced a Republican-led who has seen many Legislature used to administrations, also is Schweitzer’s heavy hand, looking ahead, saying he but lawmakers from both hopes “we are going to find sides initially applauded out more about” Bullock’s him for staying in the background as they crafted objectives on health care and education “and more legislation. At the end, about his agenda for the they weren’t nearly so next three-and-a-half enthused after Bullock years of his term in office.” vetoed more than 70 bills For his part, Bullock has and criticized them for noted that both sides were overspending. able to reach some Still, Republican state

noteworthy agreements during the lawmaking session, including deals on freezing college tuition, cutting business equipment taxes, overhauling state pensions and increasing school funding. Since taking office, Bullock has unveiled initiatives to dramatically increase the number of Montanans with college or technical degrees, invest in schools and early childhood education and a plan aimed at making Montana an easier place to do business. In each case, Bullock is characteristically enlisting panels and experts to flesh out the ultimate solution. “I like the idea of being able to say in addition to signing bills, you are actually the CEO of 12,000 public servants. And they have great ideas, and we can work together to implement those ideas to make everyone proud of those services we provide,” Bullock said. “So that is what I probably like most about (the job).” Bullock, who was raised a few blocks from the Capitol and used to deliver the newspaper to the

rotting foundation. As enrollment rises, modular buildings will have to be purchased to make room for extra students. The committee and the school board agreed that throwing money at aging buildings didn’t make sense in the long term and that a new building on 20 acres purchased by the school in the 1970s was a more viable option, he said. The new building would include extra classroom space, a gymnasium, library and athletic fields and grounds. Features, such as wider hallways and garage doors that open between rooms, allow for more innovative learning environments and for expanded programming, Magone said. Moving kindergartners and first- through fourthgraders would open up more space for the fifth- through eighth-graders in existing buildings and allow for more programs, such as performing arts, he said. Additional space would mean more opportunities for community members to use gym and library spaces, he added. Ultimately, the goal is to add on to the new building for grades 5-8 as well. However, that project would cost too much if combined with the K-4 building, Magone said. Building K-4 first allows time to see how technology will change 5-8 education

settings, he said, adding that technology is changing the higher grade levels faster than at the K-4 level. For more on the bond measure, go to lolo.k12.mt.us or call 273-0451. Ballots must be returned by Oct. 1. A drop box will be in the lower gym at Lolo Schools on that day.

flavored milkshake, which he diplomatically agreed “could be the world’s best” – as the owners proclaim. Finally, he hopped a short flight to the Crow Indian Reservation for the annual Crow Fair, where he met with tribal leaders near a camp of more than 1,000 tepees in the southwest part of the state and deferentially addressed the large crowd after a previous speaker complained bitterly about state policies. The careful approach has helped the former attorney general transition into power after winning election with less than 50 percent of the vote last year, a 49-47 victory over his Republican opponent.

packed into every custodial closet and free space for students and staff,” he said. The possible new building is somewhere in the middle of top and low end, he said. “It’s what I like to call the Ford Taurus,” he said. If approved by voters, the new building would mean that the original 1905 building would largely be used for storage, he said. As it stands now, the old building hasn’t had any major upgrades since work in the 1950s and ’60s, he said. “It’s just been patched ever since,” he said. “It’s worn out. It’s just worn out,” he added. The current building also poses safety issues, including its hillside location directly abutting a busy highway. Students must also exit buildings to get to offices, the cafeteria, library and, in some cases, the bathroom. “From a whole intruder standpoint, that’s a big issue,” Magone said. A 30-member community committee has been looking into possible solutions for those concerns since last fall, Magone said. A remodeling effort wouldn’t address the building’s location on the side of Highway 93, nor would it cost-effectively address the need for electrical rewiring, lack of ventilation system or the

governor’s mansion, said he is still not accustomed to the high profile nature of the office. And he is careful with the limelight. “I think that I could always more constructively or better use the bully pulpit. But the bully pulpit is just one thing we can use to affect policy,” Bullock said. “So I want to use it justly, too.” On that recent trip to the eastern Montana oil fields, he ran into the House Republican who led efforts to craft a budget that could get Democratic votes. Rep. Duane Ankney of Colstrip approached Bullock after the ribbon cutting that featured very large ceremonial scissors. “Next time, you can use those big scissors on my bills,” Ankney said. But Bullock made it clear he would prefer avoid such confrontation, saying “maybe next time we can make them so I don’t have to.”

Winds push crews off fire near Pintler Lake By JENNA CEDERBERG of the Missoulian

Unexpected winds on Sunday afternoon forced crews off the Beaver Creek fire burning northwest of Pintler Lake. The lightning caused fire grew to 75 acres after winds pushed it into the Beaver Creek drainage inside the Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest. Spot fires were popping up

almost a half-mile ahead of the fire after winds picked up, said Arlee Staley, public information officer for the Beaver Creek fire. “We’ve pulled the resources off the fire for safety reasons,” Staley said. However, three helicopters were working to fight the fire Sunday evening. The fire is is burning in steep terrain full of beetle-killed trees. Crews that were flown in earlier

this weekend remain in the incident area. Two crews from Canada have arrived but have not yet been flown to the area, Staley said. “It was hot and dry again today. The wind was not supposed to be quite as bad as it turned out to be,” Staley said. The Beaverhead Deerlodge National Forest trails No. 2037 and No. 3368 are closed due to the Beaver Creek fire.

The Continental Divide National Scenic Trail remains open, as does the Pintler Lake campground, Staley said. “Tuesday there may be some moisture,” she said. “We’re hoping for some moisture, but we don’t know how much or what.” The Nez Perce fire burning nearby in the Salmon-Challis National Forest in Idaho grew slightly Sunday to 65 acres.

The fire is burning in grass and timber and is near Nez Perce Creek. The Nez Perce fire has caused the closure of portions of several trails, including a section the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, beginning at Big Hole Pass to the junction of Highway 43.

Alternative: Motorboats allowed in late summer Proposed FWP plan would have no-wake from September to July By ROB CHANEY of the Missoulian

hen Prudential dropped its plans to build an office building off Russell Street, Drake Lemm bought the property and went to work constructing a 58-unit apartment building. Lemm toured the ongoing project on Friday, pointing out the amenities he plans for each unit – walk-in closets, fullsized vanities and decks out the back door. “The population of Missoula still increases 1.5 percent a year,” said Lemm. “The population is increasing, and the number of people who can qualify for single-family homes has dropped significantly.” Since June, the city has approved more than $25 million in building permits, with $12

Located at 1721 Russell, the project will add 35 one-bedroom units, 15 studios and eight two-bedroom apartments to the city’s housing stock. Just a few blocks north on Russell, the Farran Group is developing its own $19.5 million housing project, adding 224 apartment units to the market, along with eventual retail stores.

A plan to slow boating speeds on Lake Alva has a new alternative to consider, after public comment showed strong division over the original proposal. “What we learned in the first public comment session was Lake Alva is a special place to a lot of people,” Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks fisheries manager Pat Saffel said on Friday. “We’re trying to find a solution that works for everyone.” In June, FWP officials proposed a no-wake speed limit on Lake Alva. Currently, its only restriction is that motorboats towing skiers or tubers must travel in a counter-clockwise direction to avoid collisions. Elsewhere in the area, Salmon Lake, Placid Lake, Seeley Lake, Lindbergh Lake and Holland Lake all allow unlimited motorboat use. Nowake rules allow motors, but place a severe limit on the speed. “In the first run, we had close to a couple hundred comments, largely by folks that have a stake in Lake Alva,” Saffel said. “The majority were in favor of a no-wake regulation. Still, a lot of people were opposed to it and wanted things the way they are.” The new alternative would impose a no-wake rule from September through July, but allow motorboats between August and Labor Day. A public comment period on that option begins this Thursday and closes Sept. 20. Of the four popular lakes in the Clearwater River drainage northeast of Missoula, only Alva has no private property on its shores. It has two U.S. Forest Service campgrounds on its east side, and no roads on its west side. One Forest Service See LAKE ALVA, Page B2

Determined to see the crash for himself, Gnerer hit the throttle and aimed his bike toward the smoke. He lost track of time. His adrenaline was pumping. Gnerer wasn’t the first on scene. T.J. Cunningham, the owner of the ranch where the plane crashed, was already putting out a fire spreading from the wreckage. There was little left of the plane – only a deep depression in the ground, two smoldering engines, what Gnerer thought was a chunk of the tail, and thousands of pieces of debris. Gnerer was surveying the wreckage when volunteer firefighters and a police officer arrived. The officer yelled at him: “Get the hell out of there right now.” Gnerer approached the officer and asked if anyone had escaped from the plane. The officer told him that they believed the four crew members had ejected before the crash and parachuted somewhere nearby. Their location was unknown. Gnerer offered to help find the crew and raced north on his bike. He

weaved between twisted pieces of metal and startled cattle. After three miles of riding he found cockpit seats and what looked like a hatch. Gnerer traced a quarter-mile radius around the seats; squinting, searching. He saw no one. He came across Cunningham and his wife in a pickup and a group of emergency services workers in another. The group was making plans to search in different directions when a sheriff’s deputy called out. Standing on a small hill, peering into the distance, he said he thought he could see a fallen parachute. Gnerer, best able to handle the rugged terrain on his bike, headed forth again.

While his company considered moving to another location before the remodel, it opted against it. Hart cited the area’s traffic volume and the district’s promising future, including a hopeful renovation of the Holiday Village shopping center across the street. “The pace of business drove our decision more than anything,” Hart said. “We outgrew our space quickly.

| BRIEFS | WEST YELLOWSTONE Smokejumper injured parachuting to fire

BUTTE Hewlett-Packard CEO to attend obs summit

WEST YELLOWSTONE (AP) – A smokejumper remained hospitalized Sunday after sustaining a hip injury parachuting into rugged backcountry on the Montana-Idaho border to battle the Two Top Fire. Fire spokeswoman Marianne Baumberger says the elite smokejumper was injured during the initial attack Friday on the fire that’s burning on the Continental Divide. She says the smokejumper had to be flown out by helicopter and was in stable condition Sunday. She says about 100 firefighters are on the ground battling the fire that’s about six miles from Yellowstone National Park. She says several helicopters and singleengine air tankers are also assigned to the 130-acre blaze that started Friday. She says the fire isn’t threatening any homes and U.S. Highway 20 that leads to the park is open.

BUTTE (AP) – HewlettPackard CEO Meg Whitman will take part in the Montana Economic Development Summit hosted by U.S. Sen. Max Baucus. Whitman will be one of the keynote speakers at the event set for Sept. 16-17 in Butte. Whitman is ranked No. 15 on Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women list. She’s known for turning eBay into an online auction giant. Baucus says those taking part in the summit are eager to tap Whitman’s knowledge to learn how to bring more jobs to Montana. Also taking part in the summit are Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, ConocoPhillips Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ryan Lance, Oracle President and Chief Financial Officer Safra Catz and Boeing Chief Executive Officer Jim McNerney.

BOZEMAN

Offers made for historic Story Mansion BOZEMAN (AP) – Four offers have been made on a 103-year-old mansion the city hopes to preserve, officials in Bozeman say. The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that offers for Story Mansion are from the Bozeman Art Museum, Story Mansion Inn Group, Montana Center for Civics Engagement and Tree of Life Ministries. Officials say the offers range from $400,000 to $2.6 million. “The Bozeman Art Museum’s vision is to become the brightest beacon of arts and arts education, known throughout the American West,” states a letter from the group to the city. “We feel there is no better building to house a community asset like our art institution than the historical and beloved Story Mansion.” Museum officials proposed buying the mansion for $400,000, or having the city gift the mansion to the museum. The Bozeman City Commission in April approved a plan to

terminate a contract with a group that was in default and put the mansion on the open market. The city bought the property 10 years ago for $1.3 million, amid fears it would be torn down, and started operating it as a community center and park. The city completed some renovation work, but more remains. Tree of Life Ministries, run by Matt and Lisa Weaver, offered $2.6 million for the mansion built in 1910 by the family of T. Byron Story. “The nonprofit entity ‘Tree of Life Ministries’ proposes a purchase price of fair market value,” the Weavers wrote. “Our intent is to recognize the original investment made by the people of the city of Bozeman in the 2003 purchase of $1.3 million. In addition, the taxpayers of Bozeman have made restoration investments to the T.B. Story Mansion of approximately $1.3 million, (by estimate). We anticipate, therefore, a purchase price of approximately

$2.6 million.” Montana Center for Civics Engagement is a group of eight residents who want to create the center in the mansion. “We see the need for a center dedicated to catalyzing the efforts of multiple groups working in different parts of the human/natural landscape,” the group’s proposal states. “The center, for instance, might aid the city of Bozeman in supporting a group of citizens to assist in the focus on its current essential water conservation initiative, as does One Montana, currently active in addressing water conservation with rural Montanans.” The group is offering $400,000 that would be paid by the Montana History Foundation, keeping the mansion in public ownership. The Story Mansion Inn group is offering $900,000. The group wants to renovate the property and turn it into an inn.

Fight for a decent living is never ending By AL EKBLAD

I

n July, almost 250 workers from eight states gathered in Butte to attend a labor school. They came to learn, and to teach, how to lift the voices of working people and rebuild the middle class. They walked in the footsteps of workers more than 100 years ago who migrated to Butte to work in the mines with the hope of a better life. Those miners ended up fighting the Copper Kings (mine owners) for the basic right to human dignity. Today’s workers – young, old, native, immigrant, blue-collar and professional – gathered to stand on the shoulders of their predecessors and continue the fight for a decent living. In the early 1900s, workers fought for fairness by holding public protests and work stoppages. The union contract was the solution to this strife through the creation of a written commitment that workers and owners would talk – and listen – to one another across the

negotiating table and come to good faith solutions. We are re-living history. The American working class has returned to its roots. The summer of 2013 saw the largest working class protests in U.S. history. In the absence of effective “rules of engagement” that ensure workers have the freedom to be heard, work stoppages have again become the only leverage workers have to achieve justice. All over the U.S., including in Missoula, workers from McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC and Taco Bell are protesting low wages. Car wash workers along both coasts walked off the job over low wages too. Walmart workers walked off en masse in 100 U.S. cities with 30,000 community supporters alongside. Workers have also been locked out of their jobs by employers making huge profits that want to pay less. In North Dakota and Minnesota, 1,300 of our neighbors were locked out at American Crystal Sugar for over a year. Longshoremen on the West Coast – the people who

LABOR DAY PICNIC The Missoula Area Central Labor Council will hold its annual Labor Day Picnic – with free food, drink and live union music – at the Bonner Park Bandshell from 1-5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 2. For more information call 214-6591 or email maclc.po@gmail.com.

load cargo ships – have been locked out since February by foreign corporations. The “Corporate Kings” have replaced the Copper Kings. Their names are different, but they’re driven by the same greed. Their appetite for wealth has no boundaries and they abide by no rules. They simply buy the political and judicial systems to assure the laws that once protected workers are weak or unenforceable. They use their wealth to make laws that expand their power, like the ruling in

2010 that declared “corporations are people” which allows corporate money to pour into public elections, and the overturn of Montana’s Corrupt Corporate Practices Act of 1912. This law was passed by voters in response to the attempt by one of the Copper Kings to literally purchase the votes needed to be a senator. With no limits and unlimited resources, corporate kings get politicians elected that pledge to do their bidding. All of the good laws we have, are really only as strong as the next “bat crap crazy” legislature or the next run-away Congress. Workers must remain vigilant. This year, the AFL-CIO is opening up membership to all workers and community groups. If we are going to change the world, we need to have a big army and a lot of ideas. It is a historic new path for organized labor and I’m very excited about it. No worker will ever have to go without help again just because they don’t have a union contract

on the job. You see, we believe your family should have a decent chance. If you believe that too, unions have been your ally for generations and we will continue to be for many more. Just like the old mining families of Butte who ended up renting space in boarding houses instead of buying homes and sent their kids to work instead of school, many workers today are facing the same choices. Eventually the injustices become too great, workers gather together, form unions, and start the work of balancing the scales of wealth and power. We all deserve respect, a reasonable standard of living, a quality education, job safety, and the right to retire rather than work until our dying breath. Together, bound in solidarity for a common cause, we can make the dream of a better life a reality.

Al Ekblad is executive secretary of the Montana State AFL-CIO.

Before the recession, it averaged 3.5 percent. n Businesses are managing payrolls differently.

predicts that by 2015, some industries will see only a 10 percent difference between wages in the United States and in China. Long periods of wage stagnation, even as many in corporate America are recording record profits, are a recipe for trouble. A number of economists are suggesting ways to address America’s slumping wages. Among other things, former

Labor Secretary Robert Reich suggests eliminating payroll taxes on the first $15,000 in income and requiring companies to spend more of their earnings on upgrading workers’ skills. Perhaps more than anything, perspectives must change. Wage increases must be seen as investments. Well-paid consumers make the purchases needed to keep the U.S. economy humming.

Like Yogi said, war with Syria is ‘déjà vu all over again’

L

ate last week the British Parliament rejected the push by the United Kingdom’s war-mongering prime minister to once again militarily intervene in the Middle East. To many, it came as a surprise since the United Kingdom has been a primary partner of the U.S. in the disastrous military excursions into Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and a host of other sovereign nations under the phony rubric of George Bush’s GEORGE OCHENSKI “War on Terror.” President Barack Obama now finds himself faced with the prospect of unilateral military action against Syria, which begs the question: What will our Congress do to fulfill its function of checks and balances when the Executive decides to bomb other nations? The situation, as Yogi Berra once quipped, “is like déjà vu all over again.” Remember when

Bush, Cheney, and their cohort of congressional and media supporters assured the American people that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction that would be unleashed on the world if the U.S. didn’t invade the country? Remember the phony satellite pictures of what we were told were “mobile germ labs”? Or how about the “Nigerian yellow cake” our politicians said were intended to produce nuclear weapons or “dirty bombs” in New York’s subways? It all turned out to be total lies to justify going to war. That rush to more than a decade-long disaster of senseless slaughter is eerily reflected in Barack Obama’s current stance on Syria. Back then the United Nations, having done its own investigations, rejected the notion that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Today, the United Nations is once again trying to hold back America’s snarling dogs of war as U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon begs for more time both to analyze information on the suspected use of chemical weapons and to seek diplomatic

solutions. But once again, the U.S., which uses the U.N. when it’s convenient and ignores it when it’s not, is rushing to bomb another sovereign nation. Already Obama has directed warships with cruise missiles into position off Syria’s coast, ready to unleash Hell at a moment’s notice. And once again, should they do so, we will be told collateral damage, aka slaughter of helpless civilians, will be unfortunate but unavoidable. Thankfully, some in Congress are aware of the fact that the American people are more than war weary – we are tired of paying billions a day for the sole purpose of waging war around the globe. We are sickened at the results. And we are drained by being thrust into the role of overseer of global conflict. Moreover, this war, like the ones in Iraq and Afghanistan, has no foreseeable end, no “victory” to be won, no sense of who is or isn’t on what side, or how they will or won’t affect our future. Indeed, the so-called Syrian

Rebel Army is increasingly composed of fighters with links to al-Qaida, allegiances to harsh Islamist social and religious protocol, and antithetical to whatever interests the U.S. claims to have in the region. Just last week an American photographer was released by the same rebels after having been robbed, imprisoned and tortured by groups who asked him “do you remember Guantanamo” after beating him senseless. And these are the guys Obama thinks we need to help with military intervention. The silence from Montana’s congressional delegation is deafening. These are people elected because they promised they would “lead.” Democrat Sen. Max Baucus is one of the Senate’s most senior members and the powerful chair of the Finance Committee. But far from voicing an opinion on Syrian intervention – or even asking Montanans what they think – Baucus is mute once again, apparently content to stand idly by as yet another runaway president starts yet another unjustified war. Or how about Democrat Sen.

Jon Tester? Many will recall that Tester campaigned against the wars of George W. Bush in his first run for the Senate. Now in his second term, Tester seems to have lost the courage to stand up for peace and diplomacy instead of senseless slaughter. Silence, however, is not leadership. And then there’s Republican Rep. Steve Daines, Montana’s lone member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Many of Daines’ fellow Republicans are voicing concerns over striking Syria. But so far Daines, like his Democrat counterparts, remains tongue-tied on the sidelines. Now’s the time for Montanans to tell our congressional delegation “no war with Syria.” They say “if the people lead, the politicians will follow.” We can only hope that if “we, the people,” lead the path to peace and sanity our politicians will follow.

Keep food on the table, protect SNAP in Farm Bill By LORIANNE BURHOP

T

hough the economy is slowly improving, we have a long road ahead of us as our nation works to rebuild. The unemployment rate has fallen considerably from its peak in 2009, yet this improvement does not reflect the number of Americans struggling with underemployment. While mid-wage occupations constituted 60 percent of recession losses, they account for only 22 percent of recovery growth. By contrast, low-wage occupations represented 21 percent of recession job losses, but have made up 58 percent of recovery growth. In addition, the official unemployment rate does not include the large number of people who want a job – and in many cases would likely have found one in a stronger labor market – but with jobs so hard to find have not looked enough

recently to count as officially unemployed. There is no question that jobs are the best solution to hunger. However, until jobs and opportunity are restored, one thing we can all agree on is that we need to ensure low-income families can put food on the table when they fall on hard times. The Farm Bill provides an opportunity to do just that. The Farm Bill includes funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program , our nation’s largest public nutrition program. Congress is currently working to reauthorize the Farm Bill, which also includes numerous farm and agricultural policies. The House recently passed a “farm only” version of the bill that did not include the nutrition title (the portion of the bill that includes SNAP). They are expected to take up a

“nutrition only” bill following the August recess. Proposals for this nutrition bill are extremely concerning. The House bill is expected to contain up to $40 billion in cuts to SNAP, a level of cuts that would be devastating to low income families across Montana. The Senate’s version of the Farm Bill included $4 billion in cuts to SNAP, a level that would result in 1.6 billion lost meals over 10 years. If the Senate Farm Bill were enacted, about 400,000 needy households would see their benefits go down by an average $90 per month. The House Farm Bill would decrease benefits by about $90 per month for 850,000 households and cause 2 million individuals to lose SNAP entirely. Even if Congress makes no changes to SNAP, benefits will decline for all participants on Nov. 1 when the

ARRA benefit boost expires, falling by about $25/month for a family of three. A recent report by the Institute of Medicine found that even current benefit levels are inadequate to maintain a healthy diet. Further cuts will only worsen health and hunger for millions of Americans. Cutting SNAP benefits will delay our economic recovery and lead to long-term costs far greater than any immediate savings. SNAP has proven to be an effective economic stimulus creating approximately $9 in local economic activity for every $5 worth of benefits. In addition, SNAP supports seniors, children and working families. Nearly 60 percent of SNAP households with a non-disabled, nonelderly member are employed and nearly 90 percent of these households were employed during the previous or following year. Until we address the issue of underemployment and the

rising costs of health care, housing and other necessities, families will continue to depend on SNAP to get the nutrition they need to stay healthy. Investing in hunger relief is a cost-effective use of taxpayer dollars and an investment in our nation’s future. Hunger increases health care costs, lowers worker productivity, harms children’s development and diminishes their educational performance – these are costs that we cannot afford. Please ask Representative Steve Daines, R-Mont., to support the thousands of Montana families struggling with hunger during upcoming Farm Bill negotiations by voting against harmful cuts to SNAP.

Lorianne Burhop is the public policy manager at the Montana Food Bank Network (www.mfbn.org).

Letters MISSOULA POST OFFICE There is only one John Swanson John Swanson is a guy who rises at 4:30 a.m. so he can walk his dog and bring in newspapers for a number of his elderly neighbors. He is a guy who is first to arrive and last to leave whenever work is involved. Birthdays, graduations, potlucks, etc. John’s entire life has been one of giving, serving, helping and doing and this has carried over into his many years of service at the Post Office in Missoula. All of us who have known him for any length of time will give witness to his overthe-top work ethic, and kindness to his customers. He has gone to visit with many of them on his days off over the years, and has even fixed numerous broken mailboxes as well for his elderly and disabled customers, on his days off. Unbelievable, unheard of: John Swanson. Unfortunately, hundreds of such people who have been the recipients of John’s unparalleled efforts, will come to grips with the fact that their next delivery person will be “no John Swanson.” Thanks, John.

U.S. SOCIETY Different sets of rules How is it that our society feeds off of special interest groups within the collective? We are currently some 310 million strong, although that seems a nebulous figure. What is it about our social structure that prompts us to create different rules for minority clots of individuals who cannot seem to keep up with the herd? I don’t believe that was the original premise when we declared independence from outside control. I believe lady justice wears the blindfold to best represent an idea of treating everyone reasonably equal. Oh, maybe that’s it, we redefined “reasonable.” As in “Animal Farm:” Some animals are more equal than others, therefore the need for a priority status – a different set of rules for these minuscule clots of humanity; they are special. Why is it that the rest of society is now required to slow down or stop when others can’t, or won’t, keep up or catch up (or even pass the herd). Isn’t that an imposed handicap on the herd? Punishment for individual abilities that set us apart, allowing us to move forward as a collective, seems ludicrous to me. Historically, that has never worked out so well in any society – so why are we reproving a known theorem? Why do we persist on continually proving that those who can’t, don’t; those who won’t, don’t? Maybe it’s time for those who do, to move on, unfettered by those who can’t, won’t or don’t. Maybe it’s time to put the blindfold back on lady justice and reinvent the concept of reasonable equality. It does still exist; it’s just been buried, along with the dead skunk, under that 6 feet of bull evacuation I spoke of sometime back. Reality is that the truth, once learned, cannot be unlearned. Listen to some reason for a change. Michael Gale, Ronan

Thanks to the generosity of Gateway Community Credit Union, the Missoulian, Student Assistance Foundation, ALPS Corporation, Beach Transportation, and dozens of local businesses and organizations, individual donors and volunteers, we were able to “supply our students.” This year’s Supply our Students school-supply drive was a great success. Last week, nine local nonprofits funded by United Way of Missoula County serving kids in need distributed 490 backpacks filled with school supplies. The backpacks included everything from crayons to scientific calculators and flash drives, helping to ensure that elementary, middle and high-school students start school ready to learn. Without the right tools, our most vulnerable students would struggle to keep up, and some would even give up. Once again, Missoula has demonstrated its extraordinary commitment to young people. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who supplied our students. Susan Hay Patrick, Chief executive officer, United Way of Missoula County, Missoula

week ago. For a nonprofit organization, this can be devastating and include: decreased feeling of workplace safety, loss of confidential data, replacing stolen or damaged equipment, decreased programming activities during the cleanup and more. These are in addition to the organization having to work twice as hard to raise funds to compensate for insurance deductibles, staff work hours and replace stolen funds and equipment. The break-in happened just prior to our annual Hospice Honors event. This event is just one of two annual events and helps to raise the funding necessary to carry out quarterly granting programs. HCF chose not to cancel the event as it raises funds which are imperative to the hospice and palliative care providers to whom HCF grants money each quarter. Hospice Honors will take place as scheduled on Sept. 6 at the MCT Center for the Performing Arts beginning at 6 p.m. with a VIP pre-party. HCF is aware that there are many generous community members in Missoula and HCF asks that anyone who can, help us celebrate the work that our local providers do on a daily basis and attend this event. If interested, visit www.hcfmissoula.com or call (406) 541-2255 to learn more about Hospice Honors. VIP tickets are $60 each and general admission tickets are only $30 each. If you cannot attend, please consider making a donation to HCF to help us carry out our events and ongoing programs. HCF is dedicated to continuing to achieve its mission of funding compassionate care activities, increasing awareness of hospice options and working to establish a hospice house in Missoula.

Moralez committed suicide in February 2010, shortly before her 17th birthday. The sentence imposed Monday by Baugh, and statement he made at the hearing, have drawn international attention and criticism. Baugh said at the hearing that the victim, Cherice Moralez, was older than her chronological age and had some control of the sexual relationship with her teacher. A protest rally Thursday drew about 400 people to downtown Billings, where participants asked for Baugh’s resignation.

Ray Brown of Helena speaks inside the Strawberry Butte Lookout near Montana City in August. Brown spent the summer of 2011 manning the lookout. KRISTIN INBODY/Great Falls Tribune

Though there are fewer fire lookouts in Montana, volunteers gladly continue serving important role By ERIN MADISON Great Falls Tribune

H

ELENA – Ray Brown knows each of the 80 steps that wind in a corkscrew up the 60-foot tower of the Strawberry Butte Lookout. In 2011, he manned the tower full time. “This was my home,” Brown said. “I love it up here.” While working as the fire lookout at Strawberry Butte, Brown lived in the 20-foot-by-12foot one-room cabin that sits at the base of the lookout tower. The cabin contains a bunk bed, a few shelves, a fridge and a twoburner stove. Everything runs on propane. “This is literally living, dining and sleeping,” Brown said. Brown’s commute every morning involved climbing the 80 steps that lead up the tower to the 8-foot-by-8-foot lookout at the top. The lookout, on all four sides, is covered in windows, divided into small square panes. Inside, a vintage fire finder takes up most of the small space. Although it dates back to the early 1940s, the fire finder is still used to pinpoint the location of a blaze. “This is the heart of a lookout,” Brown said. “It’s a really exact way to find fires.” The fire finder is round, about 14 inches in diameter. The 360 degrees of a compass are marked around its circular base with a map sitting on top. Cross hairs made of horse hair and a slit to look through stick up from the device. Surrounding the fire finder, which sits on a post in the center of the lookout, is enough space to move around. A folding chair and step stool lean against a wall. Beyond that, there is room for little else. With Brown’s arms outstretched, he can nearly touch two walls of the lookout. Despite the cramped space, Brown would spend anywhere from eight to 12 hours a day in the lookout, sometimes less or more depending on fire conditions, scanning the hillsides for smoke. The top of Strawberry Butte sits at 6,100 feet above sea level and See LOOKOUTS, Page C2

Flathead man invents safety latch to keep football helmets secured By RYAN MURRAY Daily Inter Lake

The response has been overwhelming. I haven’t had one school say they didn’t want this.

ALISPELL – Jim Wegener was changing a light bulb in his exwife’s house in Seattle when the light came on – literally and figuratively. By fitting the two-pronged bulb above his head, he noticed that it latched in and couldn’t be rattled loose. His jaw dropped and the idea for a new invention raced through his head. Two years later, he has developed a safety latch for football helmets, preventing them from popping off during play. The new device got its first testing in August. “The big problem in football today is concussions and brain injuries,” he said. “There isn’t a hospital in the country that isn’t concerned about it. Kalispell Regional Medical Center is certainly one of them.” A registered nurse at Rocky Mountain Heart and Lung in Kalispell, Wegener, 68, spent 20 years earlier in his medical career at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he saw a number of a severe injuries from football.

PATRICK COTE/Daily Inter Lake

Jim Wegener poses with his new design for football helmet chinstraps at his home near Creston on Aug. 6. Wegener has developed a safety latch for football helmets, preventing them from popping off during play. The new device got its first testing in August. Wegener also is an ardent football fan, and he’s seen helmets pop off players time and time again. He knew his idea

was long overdue. The Wegener Latch is a shockingly simple idea, and Wegener has a patent

pending on it. It works by sliding a button into a large opening, then down along a narrower trench where it can’t be yanked out like the button snaps on football helmets used today. The tension from the player’s chinstrap keeps it locked, and it can’t be removed unless the player pulls down on his face mask and then maneuvers the button out. Essentially, it’s like a door chain. “The patent attorney I talked to said this was the ripe apple at the bottom of the tree no one had picked,” Wegener said. “The patent, prototype and first 1,000 latches pretty much cost me my See HELMETS, Page C2

life savings.” But Wegener is all in. The latches are made from finely honed airplane aluminum and manufactured by a company in Polson. “It won’t break. You simply cannot break it,” he said. “The guys in Polson are super into it, they have designed the website and all that.” The website, helmetsafetylatch.com, has videos explaining how the invention works, testimonials from players and coaches, and pictures of helmets from schools that have embraced Wegener’s invention. Schools nationwide are lining up for the new device, which began field testing earlier this month. The first school Wegener

visited – his alma mater Kansas State University – ordered 25 to test on the field. So did Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. And Tulsa. And Texas, Colorado, Nebraska, Montana and Montana State.

While the reaction from schools has been massive, Wegener isn’t rolling in that sweet football money just yet. These are just testers. If the schools like the helmet safety latch, they will pay in a few months, $25 a pop. His patent could be used not only for football, but His eight-day trip also for hockey, lacrosse, through Big 12 country motorcycle and even landed him most schools in military helmets. He’s the region. He even made especially excited to see inroads to the Southeastern how a prototype boat cover Conference. Ole Miss, works out.

established last year, states that a player whose helmet comes off in play must sit out at least one play. “The players are becoming very lax about putting their helmets on properly,” Wegener said. “I think you are going to see the NCAA tighten up even more on this rule in the next year.” The reactions to this potentially game-changing invention have been solid, Wegener said. He is particularly proud of a story when he was traveling to the University of Wyoming. He and his wife Patti, who handles the logistics of the business, called up the equipment manager for the Wyoming Cowboys. Mike “Mad Dog” Aanonsen told Wegener he’d wait for a little while. When the inventor got there and gave his

presentation, Aanonsen – a gruff veteran – was floored. “He said ‘Oh, my God, I’m so glad I waited for you,’ ” Wegener said. “He ordered 50 on the spot.” Should some of these larger schools decide to invest in the helmet safety latch, it could mean very good business for him. How good? Using the University of Wyoming as an example, Wegener said the Cowboys have 140 players that come out to practice at the start of the year. Each player has two game helmets and a practice helmet. All would benefit from the latch, he said. That’s just one Football Bowl Subdivision school of the more than 120 in the country. Not to mention Football Championship Subdivision, D-II or D-III. It isn’t just a college issue, either. High school

does,” Brown said. Everything got very quiet and then there was a huge crash. Brown read four or five books a week at Silver King. He continues to read, draw, study maps and re-finish cross-cut saws at the Strawberry Butte Lookout. “You have to figure out a way to stay busy because otherwise you’d go crazy,” he said. Brown also took two of his dogs with him to Strawberry, which was a big help in keeping him from going crazy. Brown does get lonely at times being a fire lookout, but it’s also hard to adjust to civilization and seeing people every day after a summer of solitude. “It takes a special person to do it,” Brown said. “You have to be really comfortable with yourself and you have to be comfortable being alone and not lonely.” Brown says the best job in the world is being a smoke jumper, which he spent two years doing. Working as a fire lookout is the second best job. There’s a certain mystique that goes along with position. People tend to conjure up images of Edward Abbey sitting in a lookout tower writing “Desert Solitaire” or “Black Sun.” “You get to live a romantic life,” Brown said.

football players number more than one million. Glacier and Flathead High Schools already have some test latches on their helmets. So does Cut Bank Middle School. Wegener has plans for a cheaper plastic model for Pee Wee and Pop Warner football. In the whirlwind of the last few weeks, it would be easy to be overwhelmed by what appears to be a company on the cusp of something big. Wegener is still grounded. “The patent isn’t through yet,” he said. “We have to wait on the government to accept it. That could take a year or 10 years. They might not even accept it and I’ll have to reapply.” While he waits, he can bask in the glowing praise of coaches calling from across the country asking for their helmets on his website.

Natural diversity is amazing, giving us millions of plants and animal species on this planet. They live in every type of niche in every ecosystem on land, in the sea and in the air. Here are some of the largest living animals today. Use this actual size one-foot ruler to calculate how large these creatures are compared to you — the large number shown with the animal gives its average size and the number of rulers needed to measure it!

t wasn’t exactly a well-kept secret Montana was going to be rock-solid on defense this season. Any cub reporter could have figured that out way back in April.

Sloane Stephens returns a shot to Serena Williams during the fourth round of the U.S. Open tennis tournament Sunday in New York. Williams won the match 6-4, 6-1.

Serena too much for Stephens By HOWARD FENDRICH Associated Press

Points leader Jimmie Johnson, Clint Bowyer and Matt Kenseth had already claimed playoff berths before Atlanta. That means the final five will be determined at Richmond. Busch earned his 16th win of the year in NASCAR’s top three series. He has nine victories in Nationwide and three in trucks.

NEW YORK – For eight intense, entertaining games, Sloane Stephens stayed right with Serena Williams. For a 40-minute stretch in the fourth round of the U.S. Open, the top two American women put on quite a show. Both hit serves topping 115 mph. Both whipped groundstrokes to the corners. Both covered a lot of ground, extending points with leg-churning defense. Both showed the occasional sign of nerves, reflecting what a big deal this was, in part because the 15th-seeded Stephens already was one of only three players to beat No. 1 Williams this season. Until, that is, the score was 4all in the first set Sunday. That’s when Williams took over. The 20-year-old Stephens’ time at the top of tennis may come. For now, the 31-year-old Williams is still as good as it gets. Taking eight of the last nine games, defending champion Williams returned to the quarterfinals at Flushing

The last-place Osprey fell to 12-18 in the second half, 28-40 overall. The Voyagers took a 6-3 lead into the final frame before the Osprey staged a last-ditch rally. Stryker Trahan led off the inning with his ninth homer of the season to cut the gap to 6-4. Joe Munoz then doubled and eventually moved to third on a wild pitch by Great Falls reliever James Hudelson. Chuck Taylor scored Munoz with a two-out single to get Missoula within 6-5. Hudelson, though, recorded his second save by getting Jamie Westbrook to fly out to center to end the game.

SCOREBOARD

| BRIEFS | NATIONAL Pagenaud wins crashfilled GP of Baltimore BALTIMORE (AP) – Simon Pagenaud emerged as the winner of a collision-marred Grand Prix of Baltimore on Sunday, charging to the lead after a series of mishaps involving several other contenders – including one involving rivals Scott Dixon and Will Power. It was the second career win for Pagenaud, both this year. The 29-year-old Frenchman became the third driver to win in three years on the bumpy, challenging street course that runs through the middle of the city. Josef Newgarden was second, the best finish of his career, and Sebastien Bourdais took third. Last week at Sonoma, Dixon led until he received a drive-through penalty with 15 laps to go for hitting a tire in the left hand of Power’s tire holder. Dixon won the race. In this one, Power swerved right in a crowd in front of Dixon during a restart on the 53rd lap. Power clipped the wall, and Dixon lost control and smacked into the wall, ending his day. Power made it to the pit, but he was given a penalty for interference and finished 18th, one spot ahead of Dixon.

Bills QB EJ Manuel returns to practice ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) – Buffalo Bills quarterback EJ Manuel returned to practice Sunday after missing two weeks because of a left knee injury. Manuel participated in warm-ups and individual drills during the portion of practice open to the media. He moved well and did not appear to show any effects from the injury. He was wearing a small brace on his left knee underneath his black spandex. Manuel had been out since being hurt Aug. 16 in Buffalo’s second preseason game. He had what the team referred to as a “minor procedure” on the knee on Aug. 18. The Bills have remained hopeful that the firstround pick would return in time to start the team’s season opener against New England.

Oh backs baseball, softball for Olympics TOKYO (AP) – Japanese home run king Sadaharu Oh is going to bat for baseball and softball’s bid to get back in the Olympics. Baseball gained full medal status at the 1992 Barcelona Games and softball followed four years later in Atlanta. But both were dropped from the 2012 program in a 2005 vote by the IOC. The two sports have merged into a single confederation as they compete against wrestling and squash for a single spot on the 2020 Olympic program. The IOC will decide which sport gets back in next Sunday in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a day after choosing the host for the 2020 Olympics. Tokyo is bidding against Madrid and Istanbul. “If Tokyo wins the honor to host the Olympic Games in 2020, I believe baseball and softball competitions will deliver the peak of Olympic sport,” Oh said in a statement issued by the World Baseball Softball Confederation. The biggest obstacle to the bid is its failure to guarantee the presence of Major League Baseball players. MLB commissioner Bud Selig has said the season won’t be stopped to free players for the Olympics.

SPORTS MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP

| SUNDAY’S BOX SCORES | n American League

BEN MARGOT/Associated Press

Tampa Bay’s Wil Myers, left, tries to avoid the tag of Oakland catcher Stephen Vogt in the seventh inning of their game on Sunday in Oakland, Calif. Myers, called out on the play, was attempting to score on a single by Desmond Jennings.

A’s gain ground on Texas Associated Press

OAKLAND, Calif. – The Oakland Athletics hope they are poised for another spectacular September like the one that propelled them to an improbable AL West title over the Texas Rangers on the final day last season. The Rangers arrive Monday for an important three-game series, clinging to a one-game division lead over Oakland with six meetings left. Coco Crisp and Stephen Vogt homered, A.J. Griffin struck out seven in seven innings, and Oakland completed a threegame sweep of fellow playoff contender Tampa Bay with a 5-1 victory Sunday. “This is what we look forward to, a chance to control our own destiny and get where we want to be, and that’s to win the division,” third baseman Josh Donaldson said. The A’s are on a nice little roll again. Oakland pulled off a pair of one-run wins before Sunday’s result against the Rays, who are right behind Oakland in the AL wild-card race. “The games were a little more electric, definitely, playing against a good team, a scrappy team like Tampa and being in the situation we’re in alongside of them,” Crisp said. “They do bring the energy and playing against a team like that the atmosphere it has been a little bit more intense.” After Crisp led off the bottom of the first with a home run, James Loney tied it with his own longball in the top of the second. Griffin (12-9) settled in after that to win his second straight outing following a four-start winless stretch in which he was 0-2. Griffin allowed one run on five hits and walked one. He yielded his majors-leading 33rd home run, most since current pitching coach Curt Young gave up 38 in 1987. The defense behind him made some crucial stops. Wil Myers was thrown out at the plate to end the seventh trying for the tying run on a single by Desmond Jennings.

ELSEWHERE IN THE AL TWINS 4, RANGERS 2: At Arlington, Texas, Kevin Correia pitched seven strong innings and the Twins clinched their first series victory at Texas in four years, beating the AL West-leading Rangers. Correia (9-10) allowed one run and scattered five hits. The right-hander struck out two and got 14 outs on the ground, including a pair of double plays. ORIOLES 7, YANKEES 3: At New York, J.J. Hardy and Adam Jones hit three-run homers in the seventh inning as the Orioles suddenly broke loose, jolting the Yankees to avert a sweep in a matchup of wild-card contenders. Shut out on three singles Saturday, the Orioles were blanked by Andy Pettitte for six innings before their seven-run rally against the 41-year-old lefty and a faltering bullpen. Michael Morse lined a leadoff single against Pettitte to begin the comeback from a 3-0 deficit. Acquired from Seattle on Friday, he got two hits in his Baltimore debut. INDIANS 4, TIGERS 0: At Detroit, Mike Aviles hit a grand slam in the ninth inning that lifted Cleveland to a win over the Tigers. The AL Central leaders had won seven straight against secondplace Cleveland. Joe Smith (6-2) got the win after giving up one hit and a walk in the eighth, keeping the Tigers scoreless after Danny Salazar’s strong start. Joaquin Benoit (4-1) gave up Aviles’ slam after intentionally walking Jason Kubel to load the bases. ROYALS 5, BLUE JAYS 0: At Toronto, James

Shields pitched seven innings of three-hit ball to win his fourth straight decision, Eric Hosmer drove in two runs and the Royals beat the Blue Jays to avoid a three-game sweep. The Royals won for the sixth time in eight games. They are 5½ games behind Tampa Bay in the AL wild-card race. Former Blue Jays infielder Emilio Bonifacio, a former Missoula Osprey, had two hits, scored twice and stole two bases for the Royals. RED SOX 7, WHITE SOX 6: At Boston, David Ortiz continued to rebound from a miserable stretch with two hits and three RBIs, leading the Red Sox to a win over the White Sox that completed a threegame sweep. Stephen Drew added a solo homer for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who won for the seventh time in eight games. ASTROS 2, MARINERS 0: At Houston, rookie Brett Oberholtzer pitched a four-hitter and Jason Castro hit an RBI double in the eighth inning, lifting the Astros to a win over Seattle. The 24-year-old Oberholtzer (4-1) struck out five and walked one. He did not allow an extra-base hit in his sixth career start and ninth appearance to lower his ERA to 2.79.

NATIONAL LEAGUE CARDINALS 7, PIRATES 2: At Pittsburgh, Matt Holliday and David Freese drove in two runs apiece and St. Louis beat Pittsburgh Pirates to move back into a tie for the NL Central lead. Matt Carpenter, Allen Craig, Yadier Molina and Shane Robinson added two hits each for St. Louis, which jumped on Pittsburgh rookie Kris Johnson (0-2) early to snap a three-game skid. DODGERS 2, PADRES 1: At Los Angeles, Zack Greinke allowed one run over seven innings, Yasiel Puig homered in the sixth and Los Angeles beat San Diego to complete a three-game sweep. The NL West leaders earned their 10th sweep of the season and first against San Diego. They extended their roll from August, when the Dodgers went 23-6 for their most wins in a month since moving to Los Angeles in 1958. ROCKIES 7, REDS 4: At Denver, Todd Helton doubled for his 2,500th career hit, Michael Cuddyer homered among his four hits and Colorado overcame the loss of starting pitcher Tyler Chatwood to beat Cincinnati. Helton became the 96th player in major league history to reach 2,500 hits. Cuddyer went 4 for 4 with three RBIs. Shin-Soo Choo homered and had three hits for the Reds. Chris Heisey was 4 for 4. GIANTS 8, DIAMONDBACKS 2: At Phoenix, Yusmeiro Petit struck out a career-high 10, Hector Sanchez drove in three runs and San Francisco beat Arizona to take two of three from the Diamondbacks. Hunter Pence homered, doubled and singled, driving in two runs and scoring three times as the Giants improved to 10-5 against Arizona this season. MARLINS 7, BRAVES 0: At Atlanta, Nathan Eovaldi combined with Steve Cishek on an eight-hit shutout, Jeff Mathis homered and drove in three runs, and Miami beat Atlanta to stop a six-game losing streak. Ed Lucas had a two-run single and Mathis added a two-run double in the Marlins’ fiverun third inning. CUBS 7, PHILLIES 1: At Chicago, Jake Arrieta allowed three hits while pitching into the seventh inning and Welington Castillo drove in two runs to lead Chicago over Philadelphia. Acquired from Baltimore on July 2, Arrieta (2-1) worked around three walks in 6 2-3 innings. Three relievers combined for 2 1-3 shutout innings to give the Cubs their first consecutive home wins since a stretch of three straight July 6-9. NATIONALS 6, METS 5: At Washington, Jayson Werth’s two-out RBI double in the eighth inning capped a late rally and Washington avoided a series sweep with a win over New York. The Nationals trailed 5-2 entering the seventh, but scored once in that inning on Wilson Ramos’ runscoring single and added three in the eighth. The victory moved Washington within 6½ games of Cincinnati for the final National League wild card berth. The Reds lost at Colorado 7-4 on Sunday.

INTERLEAGUE ANGELS 5, BREWERS 3: At Milwaukee, J.B. Shuck hit a three-run double in the seventh inning to rally the Los Angeles Angels past Milwaukee for a three-game sweep. Mike Trout tripled and doubled among his three hits to help the Angels finish an 8-1 road trip. They have won eight in a row against the Brewers in Milwaukee, dating to 1997.

Colorado State from the Mountain West, Minnesota from the Big Continued Ten and Kansas from the ESPN.com reported the Big 12. NDSU does it with seven FCS teams that have power football. The Bison won on the road have made rallied to beat K-State 2421 in Manhattan and it a total of $2,375,000, didn’t look fluky. ranging from $225,000 to “After watching the $450,000 each. game tape, it’s not like North Dakota State Kansas State was playing made $350,000, and terrible,” Bohl said. “I just Eastern Washington think we beat them.” $450,000. Eastern Washington, Bohl’s Bison in recent years have knocked off which became the third

FCS team to beat a ranked FBS team, was just as good in its own way. The Eagles spread the field with dualthreat quarterback Vernon Adams. Oregon State, from the Pac-12, just couldn’t stop EWU in a 49-46 victory. As with NDSU, EWU was just better than its FBS opponent. “We certainly were on that day,” Baldwin said. “Maybe only a play or two better.” There has been much

discussion among the leaders of the top conferences in FBS about strengthening schedules. They want more appealing TV matchups and want an extra emphasis on strength of schedule to determine who plays in the coming College Football Playoff. The Big Ten has proposed eliminating games against FCS teams altogether. Bohl is part of the board of trustees for the American Football

Coaches Association, headed by Texas’ Mack Brown with representatives from all levels of college football. He said the 20 member board has voted unanimously to keep playing cross-divisional games. “Football needs to be more inclusive instead of exclusive,’ said Bohl, a former Nebraska player and assistant coach. “Saturday was an example of that.”

the U.S. Open last September and Wimbledon this July – along with two runner-up finishes. “The expectations are higher, but there’s not as much pressure to win,” the third-seeded Murray said. “I feel much more comfortable coming into these events than this time last year.” In the fourth round, he’ll play 65th-ranked Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan, who eliminated No. 20 Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-4, 2-6, 3-6, 61. Other matchups set Sunday are 2001 U.S. Open champion Lleyton Hewitt against No. 21 Mikhail Youzhny, and No. 5 Tomas Berdych against No. 9 Stanislas Wawrinka. “It was a bit hot, a bit humid, but otherwise, tennis was good,” Berdych said after his 6-0, 6-3, 6-2 victory over No. 31 Julien Benneteau. “I managed to stay focused from the first point ’til the last. Didn’t do any ups and downs.” The same almost could have been said by Williams, whose match against Stephens was eagerly anticipated from the moment the draw came out 1.5 weeks ago. At the outset, anyway, it lived up to the hype. Williams was the oldest

player to reach the fourth round; Stephens the youngest. Williams owns 16 Grand Slam titles, including four at the U.S. Open, and 54 trophies total. Despite being the only current member of the top 20 in the WTA rankings without an appearance in a tournament final, Stephens has earned the label of “Next Big Thing,” in large part by being one of three women to get to the round of 16 at all four Grand Slam tournaments in 2013 (Williams, of course, is another). Stephens’ highlight to date was a semifinal run at the Australian Open in January, when she stunned Williams in the quarterfinals. Only adding to Sunday’s story line, Stephens has said some unflattering things about Williams. As they sat in their sideline chairs after warming up under a ceiling of gray clouds at Arthur Ashe Stadium, spectators began choosing sides. One yelled, “Come on, Serena!” Another, “Go, Sloane!” Williams opened Game 1 with a 96 mph ace and closed it with a 112 mph service winner. In between, Stephens managed to return a 118 mph serve. In

Game 2, Stephens cranked a forehand winner down the line that drew gasps from the stands, and moments later, won a 24-stroke exchange thanks to fantastic retrieving. Game 4 alone lasted 18 points over 11 minutes, and featured a 119 mph service winner by Stephens, who also delivered a cross-court backhand winner to cap a 10-shot point. When that game ended, it wasn’t yet time to change ends, but both women wandered over to the sideline to towel off. Soon, Williams nosed ahead, breaking to 4-2 with a cross-court forehand return winner off a 101 mph serve, the clenching a fist and shouting, “Come on!” But she handed a break right back in the next game by double-faulting on each of the last two points. “I have to stop that,” Williams said. After she held to 5-4, everything changed, and Stephens was mostly her own undoing. One point from making it 5-all, she rushed an easy forehand, pushing it long, and slumped her head and shoulders. Then she sailed another forehand long. And, finally, she sent a forehand wide.

Chase

defending Cup champion Brad Keselowski. Winless for the year and on the Chase bubble, he took over the lead and looked as if he had a shot at a much-needed victory. But his engine dropped a couple of cylinders and began dropping back, finally sputtering to a stop 18 laps from the finish. He finished 35th and will go to Richmond knowing he likely needs a victory to even have a shot at taking a second straight title. He slipped to 15th in the standings, 28 points behind 10th-place Kurt Busch. “There’s just some

things you can’t control,” Keselowski said. “I guess we’ll look at the positive. We were leading the race when it broke. We were doing all the right things. We just didn’t put all the pieces together.” Truex made it through the grueling race, which lasted some four hours, even though his cast was in the tatters at the end. “It hurts like hell when you’re steering the car,” he said. After a pre-determined yellow flag came out on Lap 25 so NASCAR officials could check tire wear, Gordon had trouble getting up to speed on the

restart. That set off a chainreaction series of collisions behind the No. 24 car, which resulted in Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kahne smashing his radiator and smoking badly. Another Hendricks car, driven by Johnson, also sustained damage, as did Mark Martin and Jeff Burton. Kahne limped straight to the garage for repairs and finished 36th, while the other battered cars spent extended time on pit road. But Kahne locked up at least a wild card because he has two victories on the year.

Garcia widens his lead Associated Press

NORTON, Mass. – Sergio Garcia started with the lead in the Deutsche Bank Championship and shot 65. And he needed just about every birdie. On a TPC Boston softened by so much rain that the third round Sunday had to be started over, Garcia kept his nose in front and gave himself a two-shot cushion with a birdie on the final hole as darkness settled over New England. Nothing is close to being settled at this FedEx Cup playoff event. Garcia was at 19under 194 and had a twoshot lead over Henrik Stenson, perhaps the hottest player in golf with two runner-up finishes and two third-place finishes in his last five events. The Swede went birdie-for-birdie with Garcia for much of the overcast day until a three-putt bogey on the 17th caused him to settle for a 66. Graham DeLaet of Canada all but locked up a spot on the Presidents Cup team with a 62 that left him three shots behind with Steve Stricker, who had a 63 and took a big step toward making the U.S. team for the matches next month at Muirfield Village. PGA champion Jason Dufner had a share of the lead until cooling off on the back nine. He had a 66 and was tied for fifth at 15-under 198 with Robert Castro (68).

Rocco Mediate wins Champions Tour event At Calgary, Alberta, Rocco Mediate ran away with the inaugural Shaw Charity Classic on Sunday for his second victory in 17 starts in his first Champions Tour season. The 50-year-old Mediate, the Allianz Championship winner in February in his first Champions Tour start, closed with a 7-under 64 at tree-lined Canyon Meadows for a sevenstroke victory. Tom Byrum had a 64 to finish second. Duffy Waldorf and Kirk Triplett tied for third at 14 under.

Pettersen wins Safeway Classic At Portland, Ore., Suzann Pettersen won the Safeway Classic for the second time in three years Sunday, taking advantage of playing partner Yani Tseng’s final-round collapse at Columbia Edgewater. Three strokes behind leader Tseng entering the round, the third-ranked Pettersen closed with a 5under 67 for a two-stroke victory over secondranked Stacy Lewis. Pettersen finished at 20-under 268 for her 12th LPGA Tour victory. The 32-year-old Norwegian also won the LPGA Lotte in Hawaii in April and won a Ladies European Tour event in March in China. She won the 2011 tournament at Pumpkin Ridge.

UM soccer team falls to Cal State Fullerton Missoulian

FULLERTON, Calif. – For the second time in three days, two unanswered goals in the second half proved to be too much for the Montana Grizzly soccer team to overcome. Cal State Fullerton scored goals in the 65th and 71st minutes Sunday to defeat Montana 2-0 at

Titan Stadium. On Friday, Loyola Marymount scored in the 75th and 84th minutes to erase Montana’s 1-0 lead and hand the Grizzlies a 21 loss. Montana (0-2-2) will return home looking for its first win of the season Thursday when the Grizzlies host Houston Baptist at South Campus Stadium.

On Sunday, Montana faced a team that won the Big West Conference title a year ago and was picked to repeat in 2013. The Titans (2-1-1) played like a conference champion, if not a solid NCAA tournament team. Cal State Fullerton put 25 shots on Montana, 10 of which were on goal, and took 10 corner kicks. “They are very, very

good. That’s probably the best team we’ve played since last year when we faced Texas Tech,” said UM coach Mark Plakorus. Montana 0 0 – 0 Fullerton 0 2 – 2 CSF – Erica Mazeau (Janali West), 64:57 CSF – Rebecca Wilson (Christina Burkenroad, West), 70:09 Shots on goal – UM 4, CSF 25. Corner kicks – UM 1, CSF 10. Saves – UM 8 (Kendra McMillen), CSF 2 (Jennifer Stuart). Total fouls – UM 3, CSF 6. Yellow cards – UM 1, CSF 0. Red cards – none.

Louisville thumps Ohio LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Teddy Bridgewater threw five touchdown passes and Michael Dyer had a 46-yard touchdown run as No. 9 Louisville defeated Ohio 49-7 on Sunday. Coming off an 11-2 finish and a Sugar Bowl upset of Florida, Bridgewater and the

Cardinals (1-0) dominated. Bridgewater kicked off his Heisman Trophy campaign by going 23 of 28 for 355 yards. Damian Copeland and Kai De La Cruz each caught two touchdowns and DeVante Parker and Robert Clark each had one.

PLUGGED IN

Longtime friend comes up short in personal hygiene Dear Abby: I have had a friend since grade school, “Dennis,” and have maintained a friendship with him throughout our lifetime. Dennis never married and lived with his parents until both died about JEANNE 10 years PHILLIPS ago. He now lives alone. Dennis does not seem to want to take care of himself hygienically, and since we work together it is becoming a serious problem. Some of the other guys don’t want to

be around him. He doesn’t bathe often enough or appear to brush his teeth daily. I have tried repeatedly over the years to talk to him about his apparent lack of cleanliness, and now that he is almost 60, it is becoming unbearable. People are starting to avoid him. Dennis is a good person and will do anything for anyone, but this lackadaisical attitude is something we can’t overlook. How can I get it across to him? He just doesn’t listen or take me seriously. – In Need of Fresh Air

affecting his relationship with his co-workers, the person to address the issue is his supervisor or boss. While Dennis may ignore or dismiss your attempts to help him, when he hears from his employers that he has to clean up his act, he may pay more attention.

Dear Abby: For the past year I have been an old friend’s lover. I’m a widow; he is married. I don’t want him to leave his wife because she has been through a lot with him, including alcohol addiction. For the past few months he has given me excuses for not seeing me. We had gotten together on a weekly basis until Dear in Need: Because recently. I have all the emails and Dennis’ poor hygiene is

texts we have sent each other, along with pictures and a journal I have kept throughout the relationship. Should I send them to his wife? They have had a long marriage, and he has cheated on her repeatedly for the last 25 years. I’m not ashamed or embarrassed about our affair. I just need to know if I should let his wife know what he has been doing. Yes, there is jealousy and revenge involved, and no, I haven’t talked to him about what I suspect because I’m not sure how to broach the subject. – The Other Woman in the Southwest Dear Other Woman: I know you are hurting right

now, but I see no reason to punish the wife for it. I’m sure after all these years there is nothing you could show-and-tell the woman that she isn’t already aware of – except that you, a friend, betrayed her. Leave her alone. If you want confirmation of your suspicions, take it up with your lover.

not comfortable in, or should I wear pants and give up all hope of making friends? – Hung Up in Houston Dear Hung Up: Start by wearing skirts for the first week or so and let the girls get to know you. See if what your sister said is true. After that, make up your own mind.

Dear Abby: I’m entering high school. The one I’m transferring to is K-12, and my younger sister already goes there. She warned me that all the girls wear skirts and wearing pants is, basically, social suicide. The problem is, I don’t like skirts. I never have. Should I go with the flow and wear something I’m

| ASTROLOGY | A baby born today has a Sun in Virgo and a Moon in Leo all day. Happy birthday for Monday, Sept. 2, 2013: This year you have more drive and energy than usual. You have what it takes to hit a home run! Sometimes you are a bit reticent to share your thoughts and feelings because of the JACQUELINE responses you have received BIGAR in the past. Take some risks. If you are single, make a point to get to know someone well before even thinking about committing. If you are attached, both of you need to devote more one-on-one time to the relationship. Leo can be demanding. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5 dynamic, 4 positive, 3 average, 2 so-so, 1 difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You’ll seem nearly unstoppable, but you might have a difficult moment when an associate challenges you. Don’t take it personally – just respond appropriately. You could be tired of this person, but getting irritated won’t help. Take a deep breath. Tonight: Go with the unexpected. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Know when to pull back and say when enough is enough. You might be dealing with a difficult person, and you’ll need to get the situation under control. Once you stop trying, you could gain an insight as to what is going on. Tonight: At a lastminute Labor Day happening. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHHH You have many opinions and ideas. Someone might let you know that he or she has had more than his or her fill of information; not everyone is interested in the same topics you are. Unexpected news from a friend could put you on a new path. Tonight: Hang out with pals. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH The need to express yourself is crucial to your wellbeing. A child or new friend might come off as being rather testy. Look the other way, and understand that this has more to do with the other party than with you. Tonight: Buy a coveted item that you have been wanting. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Listen to news more openly, and don’t get bogged down in a family member’s tale of woe. This person has been a downer lately. The unexpected draws positive results because of your optimism. You have a unique quality that is contagious. Tonight: The world is your oyster. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Assume a low profile, and you could have the good fortune of avoiding a difficult situation. You might have been feeling a little down as of late, but know that it is only a passing mood. You will want to withdraw and handle a personal matter. Tonight: Togetherness works. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH A meeting will allow you to see the pros and cons of a situation. You are responsible for your own choices, but the right

one will land you a home run. Follow your instincts, and you’ll know where to head in a particular circumstance. Tonight: Where the crowds are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH You might not be aware of how stern you seem to others. You have a tendency to take responsibilities very seriously, and you don’t smile a lot when handling important matters. If you could schmooze a little more, the results would be better. Tonight: Watch some fireworks. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21) HHH You might want to rethink a personal situation. How you handle someone at a distance could define your relationship much more clearly. A child or loved one might surprise you with his or her actions. Be spontaneous, and do not judge. Tonight: Laugh the night away. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH One-on-one

interactions will be highlighted. Everyone needs to feel important. Through this type of contact, you’ll ensure that other people feel valued. You might discover that a roommate or family member surprises you with his or her actions. Tonight: At home. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Someone might be too assertive for your taste. Listen to what is being suggested, and try to ignore this person’s attitude. If it seems like a good idea, go along with it. If not, say “no.” Getting caught up in the details won’t serve you well. Tonight: Go along with a friend’s request. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You might be recuperating from a Labor Day party. A surprising development could shake you up, especially if it involves your finances. Even if you feel lucky, you still should avoid going beyond what your budget can handle. Tonight: Take some much-needed “you” time.
