U.S. Sen. Jon Tester looks at the ruins of a house Wednesday that was destroyed by the West Fork II fire as it roared through Lolo Creek Canyon on Monday. Tester and Gov. Steve Bullock, escorted by Missoula County Sheriff Carl Ibsen, toured the fire damage along U.S. Highway 12.

Wildfire named nation’s top priority Tester, Bullock tour blackened canyon By ROB CHANEY of the Missoulian

LOLO – The Lolo Creek Complex fire was named the nation’s No. 1 firefighting priority on Wednesday, as a type 1 incident command team took over and two of Montana’s top elected officials came to call. After two days of chaotic growth, the fire was one wild-weather day away from the homes along Sleeman Gulch. From there, the next stop might be the western edge of Lolo itself. See PRIORITY, Page A10

Crews try to stay step ahead By ROB CHANEY of the Missoulian

LOLO – Firefighters took their stand along Sleeman Gulch on Wednesday and dared the Lolo Creek Complex to cross the line. Two evenings of explosive growth had moved the fire’s eastern front within sight of the information kiosk at the intersection of U.S. Highways 93 and 12. Wednesday didn’t deliver the same winds as Monday and Tuesday, when the fire grew from 80 to 8,598 acres. But it didn’t leave the firefighters with much room to spare.

Fire close to home for county commissioner By KIM BRIGGEMAN of the Missoulian

Highway 12 to unload 400 feet of new hose in preparation for the next onslaught of the Lolo Creek Complex fire. Landquist raises sheep, chickens, a couple of dogs and a goose next to the creek on the south side of the highway. The small ranch is just east of the most recent evacuation area up Sleeman Creek Road, which joins the highway less than two miles west of Lolo.

LOLO – For a woman who doesn’t wear a hat, Michele Landquist is sporting a few this week. She spoke Wednesday afternoon as a Missoula County commissioner to representatives of a multitude of agencies in a fire camp tent outside the Lolo Community Center, at a briefing that included Gov. Steve Bullock and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester. Then she drove to her home a mile or so up U.S.

Mubarak will be released as Egypt roils By NANCY A. YOUSSEF and JONATHAN S. LANDAY McClatchy Foreign Staff

CAIRO – During the latter half of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s three-decade rule, those who suggested rising up against him often would be reminded of an Egyptian phrase, “The one you know is better than the one you don’t know,” referring to Mubarak’s potential replacement. As a judge ruled Wednesday that the imprisoned former leader – whose increasingly unpopular presidency amid economic and social decline spurred the 2011 uprising that led to his fall – could be released as soon as Thursday, the familiar adage once again permeated the nation’s consciousness. Meanwhile, the militarybacked government continued its crackdown Wednesday on the Muslim Brotherhood. It arrested senior allies to the recently ousted president and Mubarak’s successor, Mohammed Morsi, in an apparent ongoing effort to decapitate the group’s leadership and hamper its ability to organize new protests. Egyptians successfully deposed Mubarak through mass protests just two years ago. But the period since has taught them that a leader whose practices and abuses are familiar is better than the one whose aren’t, many said. But even as the Egyptian prime minister’s office issued a statement that Mubarak would be put under house arrest, the rage against the former dictator that once stirred hundreds of thousands in mass protests has been replaced with exhaustion over the upheavals since his fall. The images of the former leader detained in a court cage, lying in a hospital bed, in the months after his removal from office once led many to believe a new Egypt had emerged. But on Wednesday, there was little talk of taking to the streets or appealing to the courts for his continued detention. “Hos-ni! Hos-ni!” a group of street venders in the Zamalek section of Cairo yelled after learning that the courts no longer had reason to hold the former president. Mubarak is expected to stand trial on charges of corruption and brutality. The former president was sentenced to life in prison last year for failing to prevent the killing of more than 700 demonstrators during the 18-day uprising in 2011, but that case now is under appeal. “I am disappointed, but people will not go back to the streets like before,” said Mohammed, a taxi driver who declined to give his full name so he could speak candidly. “They are tired of the Brotherhood.” Since Aug. 14, at least 1,100 people have been killed in clashes with government security forces.

Chemical weapons attack alleged By MITCHELL PROTHERO and HANNAH ALLAM McClatchy Foreign Staff

BEIRUT – Syrian government forces unleashed artillery attacks and air raids in eastern Damascus on Wednesday in a campaign that followed unverified reports of mass deaths in a chemical weapons attack. Those allegations of gassing civilians – opposition activists claim that 1,100 to more than 1,600 people are dead – dwarfed all previous such accounts in the increasingly bloody civil war. The Syrian Network for Human Rights reported that 647 Syrians were killed Wednesday, and it attributed nearly 590 of those deaths to chemical weapons. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, considered the most authoritative group tracking casualties in the conflict, estimated at least 136 dead from an air assault but didn’t address whether chemical weapons appeared to be involved. Wednesday’s offensive appeared designed to wipe out recent rebel gains outside the capital, but it was overshadowed by fresh claims from rebel activists that the forces of President Bashar Assad deployed chemical weapons even as international inspectors arrived in his country. Few reliable details filtered out of the country – more than two years into a civil war – to confirm or refute reports of a chemical attack. Information about any munitions and whether they included nerve or chemical agents couldn’t

a major event,” Thielmann said, “but it’s difficult to sort out what allegations are credible and reliable.” The activists who made the claims conceded that they hadn’t yet had time to smuggle blood and tissue samples out of Syria – they’ve done so before – to confirm the use of nerve gas. That left experts with only inconclusive videos to analyze. One forensic HUSSEIN MALLA/Associated Press Syrian women who live in Beirut, light candles during a expert questioned vigil in front of the United Nations headquarters in Beirut, whether panicked victims assumed they’d been hit against the alleged chemical weapons attack on the by nerve agents and then suburbs of Damascus on Wednesday. misused medicine. “There seem to be be confirmed without weapons attack since the increasing amounts of independent observers in 1980s. footage of very realisticthe area that allegedly was Even without appearing injuries attacked. confirmation, the reports commensurate with a Instead, scores of of chemical weapons use amateur videos posted put the U.S. government in chemical attack, but (that is) still leaving lots of online showed dozens – an increasingly awkward questions,” said Stephen women, children and men position over what role it Johnson, a visiting fellow identified as civilians – ultimately will play in a either dead or in deep seemingly intractable civil at Cranfield University’s Forensics Institute in respiratory distress and war in a volatile region.

U.S. general: No American military intervention WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration is opposed to even limited U.S. military intervention in Syria because it believes rebels fighting the Assad regime wouldn’t support American interests if they were to seize power right now, according to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Effectively ruling out U.S. cruise missile attacks and other options that wouldn’t require U.S. troops on the ground, Gen. Martin Dempsey said in a letter to a congressman that the military is clearly capable of taking out Syrian President Bashar Assad’s air force and shifting the balance of the Arab country’s 2 1/2-year war back toward the armed opposition. But he said such an approach would plunge the United States deep

into another war in the Arab world and offer no strategy for peace in a nation plagued by ethnic rivalries. “Syria today is not about choosing between two sides but rather about choosing one among many sides,” Dempsey said in the letter Aug. 19 to Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y. “It is my belief that the side we choose must be ready to promote their interests and ours when the balance shifts in their favor. Today, they are not.” Dempsey’s pessimistic assessment will hardly please members of the fractured Syrian opposition leadership and some members of the administration who have championed greater support to help the rebellion end Assad’s four-decade family dynasty. Despite almost incessant

bickering and internal disputes, some opposition groups have worked with the United States and other European and Arab supporters to try to form a cohesive, inclusive movement dedicated to a democratic and multiethnic state. But those fighting the Assad government range wildly in political beliefs and not all are interested in Western support. As the conflict has gone on, killing more than 100,000 people and ripping apart the delicate sectarian fabric of Syrian society, alQaida-linked rebels and other extremist groups have been responsible for some of the same types of massacres and ethnic attacks that the Assad regime has committed.

Activist for science over superstition gunned down in India NEW DELHI (AP) – The killing of an Indian crusader against superstition and religious charlatans prompted hundreds of protesters to shut down a city near Mumbai on Wednesday as a group of Indian scientists decried an “atmosphere of intolerance and anti-science attitude” that could undermine development. Police were hunting for two unidentified men suspected of firing four shots at Narendra Dabholkar as he was taking a morning walk Tuesday in Pune. A

witness reported seeing the assailants flee on a motorcycle. Police released a sketch of one suspect and said the two were believed to be in their 20s. Dabholkar Dabholkar, a 67year-old doctorturned-activist, had been receiving death threats for years since he began traveling by public buses to hundreds of villages around Maharashtra state to

lecture against superstitions, religious extremism, black magic and animal or human sacrifice, according to his friend and fellow activist, Deepak Girme. “He wanted to expose the people who cheat the poor in the name of gods, who promise false cures for cancer or do black magic to perform so-called miracles,” Girme said. “He would say he was a medical doctor but that superstition was a bigger disease causing a lot of harm, especially to the poor and the gullible.”

Crime novelist storyteller dies at 87 Los Angeles Times

Elmore Leonard, whose character- and dialoguedriven urban tales of con men, hustlers and killers such as “Glitz,” “Get Shorty” and “Out of Sight” earned him a reputation Leonard as one of America’s greatest crime novelists and one of Hollywood’s favorite storytellers, died this week. He was 87. Leonard, a longtime resident of the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Village, Mich., died Tuesday at his home of complications from a stroke, according to a statement from his publisher, HarperCollins. With his lean, hard prose infused with unflinching realism, mordant humor, moral ambivalence and what one critic called “a seemingly inexhaustible cast of sleazeballs, scam artists and out-and-out psychopaths,” Leonard turned out dozens of bestselling crime novels that transcended their genre. Frequently set in Detroit or South Florida, they showcased Leonard’s flair for writing pitch-perfect dialogue. “Chili Palmer’s a talker,” Nick said. “That’s what he does, he talks. You should’ve hit him in the mouth.” -From “Be Cool.” Leonard’s first western novel, “The Bounty

Hunters,” was published in 1953. After the market for westerns dried up in the 1960s, Leonard switched to writing contemporary crime novels, the literary genre that made him a worldwide critical favorite and earned him fans ranging from Nobel laureate Saul Bellow to President George W. Bush to director Quentin Tarantino. Beginning with “The Big Bounce” in 1969, Leonard turned out a string of crime novels, including “Mr. Majestyk” and “Stick.” His 1983 novel “La Brava” earned him an Edgar Allan Poe Award from the Mystery Writers of America. But it wasn’t until “Glitz,” his 1985 novel about a psychopathic excon who wants revenge on the Miami Beach cop who put him behind bars, that Leonard cracked the prestigious New York Times bestseller list. On why his novels sold so well, Leonard said: “I leave out the parts that people skip.” And his primary rule was, “If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.”

Ahead Continued

“The fire grew 2 1/2 miles in four to six hours on Tuesday,” operations section chief Mark Goeller said Wednesday. “We don’t have 2 1/2 miles to Sleeman Gulch. We have less than that. We can anticipate that it could burn into Sleeman today.” So the fire planners have set a trigger point where if the flame front gets close enough to Sleeman Gulch, ground crews will start burning out grass, brush and trees along the road to deprive the main fire of fuel and momentum as it approaches. They have also started digging fire lines on the ridges east of Sleeman Gulch Road. Beyond that, the homes of the western edge of Lolo stand next in danger. “We’ve also concentrated our retardant drops along that eastern edge, keeping it cool,” Goeller said. “It will help us buy some time and slow the spread to the east.” The potential threat to Lolo prompted Missoula County sheriff’s deputies and city police officers to go door-to-door distributing preevacuation notices to hundreds of homes west of Highway 93, from the West View neighborhood above Highway 12 all the way north to Deadman Gulch Road south of Missoula. “We’re just asking people to be prepared to move,” Sheriff’s Capt. Brad Giffin said. “So when we give the warning to go, you can grab your stuff and get out.”

Mark Goeller, operations section chief on the Lolo Creek Complex, explains strategy Wednesday for fighting the fire, marked on the map in red, as it nears the town of Lolo, on the map near Goeller’s hand. More urgent evacuation notices had already gone to residents from Mill Creek to Sleeman Gulch. Task forces of city and rural firefighters and their trucks were standing by all along the highway corridor, to defend homes and buildings. “Our resources have been short from the beginning and we’ve seen some extremely radical fire behavior,” Missoula Rural Fire Chief Bill Colwell said. “The face we’re this far through without any serious injuries is really a blessing.” Fire departments as far as Whitefish and the southern Bitterroot sent engine teams to bolster the structure protection force. They’ve tied in with a

complex web of state, federal, military and volunteer efforts to fight the fire. That includes a pair of Montana National Guard Black Hawk helicopters that become available on Thursday and Monday for staggered 15-day deployments. The choppers will handle initial attack on future fires in the Lolo area to keep them from expanding the Lolo Creek Complex, according to Maj. Tim Crowe. At least six other small fires are staffed in the Missoula Ranger District. By Wednesday afternoon, three heavy air tankers, four single-engine air tankers and numerous

helicopters were working overhead. A large contingent of bulldozers, skidgines and other heavy equipment was reconnecting the area’s extensive logging road network as fire lines and access routes. Fire spokesman Tom Kempton said the portion of the fire south of Highway 12 had its own strategy. “On the southwest area, they’re bringing hand and dozer lines to anchor on the retardant drops,” Kempton said. “ The fire is not moving through the retardant much, especially on the far end of Elk Meadows Road.”

Weather Service has a fire weather watch for thunderstorms moving across the Lolo area on Thursday night through Friday afternoon. Those fronts could bring scattered lightning and gusty winds. “It’s similar to the Jocko Lakes fire of 2007, where you have a large fire moving directly toward a community,” said Tony Liane of the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation. “It’s a scary thought, but I’ve got a lot of faith in this team. They’ve been around the block.”

Even so, crews spent much of Wednesday burning out dry fuels along the highway to forestall any spot blazes from jumping the road. Kempton said the goal was to keep the two lobes of the fire as separate as possible. “In 15 years on the Lolo National Forest, I’ve seen a lot of fire,” Lolo Forest Supervisor Debbie Austin said. “The cooperation has been incredible on this one. We do a lot of scenario training, and this would be a perfect ‘this would never really happen’ exercise.” That cooperation may be tested in the next few days. The National

Emergency director: Lives most important in evacuation By JENNA CEDERBERG of the Missoulian

LOLO – Law enforcement officers passed out protection warnings throughout Lolo on Wednesday, alerting residents to the possibility of evacuations due to the Lolo Creek Complex wildfire burning west of the small town. Lolo has not been evacuated, but the warnings noted a “current or projected threat from hazards associated with the approaching fires.” This is a time for preparedness, the notice said. Chris Lounsbury, director of the Missoula

County Office of Emergency Management, said residents in affected areas should keep several things in mind when planning for possible evacuation. The most important thing, he said, is that lives are more important than property. In the case of a quick evacuation, the focus will always be on getting people out safely, he said. For residents in a warning area, it’s a good time to start gathering important and irreplaceable documents and belongings, so they can be quickly retrieved if evacuation is necessary. Lounsbury recommended putting these kinds of items in a secure

Lounsbury said. Access to supplies hasn’t been limited because of the Lolo Creek Complex, but it’s not a bad idea to put together emergency supply kits. When making kits, food and water should be the first priority. “People don’t realize when they don’t have water how much water you go through,” Lounsbury said. The bottom line, he said, is that emergency preparedness can help ease the confusion and aftereffects of a disaster. “Should the worst happen, the better prepared they’ll be to recover from the event,” he said.

Montana National Guard joins in fight against Lolo Creek wildfires By MARTIN KIDSTON of the Missoulian

Two heavy-lift helicopters and 18 security teams from the Montana National Guard will join state and federal crews on the Lolo Creek Complex fires starting Thursday. Gov. Steve Bullock ordered two UH-60 Black Hawks to help provide initial attack from the air, while 18 security teams will support civil authorities at established checkpoints. “The Montana National

Guard is trained and ready to immediately respond to emergencies such as these,” Bullock said in a Wednesday release. “We can rely on them to support Montanans who need their help.” Bullock and Montana Adjutant Gen. Matthew Quinn met with state and federal officials Monday night in Missoula before touring the fire by air. The blaze has since doubled in size and destroyed at least five homes across 8,600 acres.

At Monday’s emergency briefing, heads of the Lolo National Forest and Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation stressed their need for additional resources on the fire. “We have more fire on the landscape than we have resources,” Montana State Forester Bob Harrington told the governor. “We have more fire than we can handle right now, and this fire will likely be with us for several weeks.”

Bullock issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency in 31 Montana counties. The move laid the groundwork to tap the Montana Guard for resources, including helicopters and personnel. Maj. Tim Crowe, public information officer for the Montana Guard, said the Black Hawks and checkpoint crews will be stationed at the DNRC state land office in Missoula and will serve under the direction of the

state agency. Roughly 110 state soldiers will be assigned to the mission, including those from the 1-189th Aviation Battalion in Helena and members of the 1889th Reserve Support Group based in Butte. “The Montana National Guard will begin the deployment process immediately and the soldiers will be placed on state active duty for up to 15 days,” Crowe said. “Plans for a rotation of

replacement forces will be made, should the mission extend beyond 15 days.” Crowe said the Guard’s aviation modules are trained in bucket work and ready to go. Checkpoint teams on the ground will assist civil authorities in providing security. “They’re going to man the existing checkpoints that are currently manned by civil authorities,” Crowe said. “It allows for their resources to go out and do other missions.”

U.S. Highway 12 from Lolo to Idaho border closed indefinitely By BETSY COHEN of the Missoulian

Over the past few days, wildfires have closed two of Montana’s most scenic highways, causing inconvenient reroutes for travelers and putting a damper on commerce into and out of the state. Because of the 8,600acre Lolo Creek Complex wildfire, U.S. Highway 12 is closed indefinitely from Lolo Hot Springs in Montana to the Idaho border. U.S. Highway 212 over Beartooth Pass is also closed four miles south of Red Lodge because of a fire, and northbound traffic has been stopped at Wyoming Highway 296, said Brandi

Hamilton, a spokesperson for the Montana Department of Transportation. “Whenever we have road closures, it is a huge impact,” Hamilton said. “Our goal is to move goods and services and people as safely as possible, but things change quickly during wildfire season.” Highway 12 is a particularly challenging closure. Not only is the corridor home to hundreds of residences and ranches, but it is also a vital transportation route for Montana and Idaho commerce and travel, with about 1,000 vehicles traveling over Lolo Pass each day.

It’s difficult to manage and to communicate a consistent message to the public.” Transportation officials are on the ground at the fires, meeting with incident commanders and keeping abreast of the changes and the possibilities for roads to reopen, Hamilton said. “We are in the real heart of wildfire season,” she said.

Outside of the wilderness boundary, mechanized equipment is being used along some roads to create a wider control line, should it be needed. The smaller Nez Peak fire, part of the Gold Pan Complex, is being hit

by helicopters. The Gold Pan Complex is currently staffed by 274 personnel, including 17 engines, four helicopters, two crews, four bulldozers and four water tenders. “We haven’t had reports of anything new today,” fire information officer Dellora Gauger said Wednesday. “We’re starting to see a lot of smoke, and we’re picking up winds here in camp. They’re not steady or high, but they always come up

about this time of day when the inversion lifts and the wind picks up and the fire reacts to all that.” Fire managers planned to conduct an infrared flight to gauge the fire’s progress on Wednesday night, she said. Temperatures are expected to remain well into the 90s in the valleys for the next few days, and no moisture is forecast. Crews all but finished mop-up operations on the Stoner Creek fire that

burned 105 acres west of Flathead Lake near Lakeside. “By the end of the day we’re anticipating it will be 100 percent contained,” said Wade Muehlhof, Flathead National Forest spokesman. A roughly 20-person crew will remain on the scene Thursday to monitor and patrol the area. The cause of the Stoner Creek fire remains under investigation.

She said her sheep there ran from the danger. “They’re not stupid, and wool really doesn’t burn,” she reasoned. “And they’re low to the ground. They say in a fire to stop, drop and roll.

When one couple pondered evacuation Tuesday night, she texted to invite them to use a vacant home on her property. “They waited until 11:30 and took me up on the offer,” she said. “I told them: You know some of the same neighbors as I do, but you got here first. There are two other bedrooms and two

bathrooms, so if you want to open it up to somebody else you feel like you’ll get along with, just go ahead and do so.” Back at the tent Wednesday afternoon, the county commissioner told Tester, Bullock, Lolo National Forest Supervisor Debbie Austin and local and state leaders that Missoula County stood behind the firefighting efforts. “We have been working incredibly hard and well together,” she said, echoing a theme at the hourlong briefing. She said she wasn’t surprised by the shift to downslope winds that drove the fires on a dangerous run the night before. “Traditionally our morning wind goes up and in the afternoon it comes down,” Landquist said. “These winds are nothing new to me. It’s like this here.” She was the first to bring up the issue of electricity, its importance to the firefighting efforts, and Missoula Electric Co-op’s efforts to restore it.

“I’m cautiously optimistic we can keep the power on so people who are still trying to keep their place watered down, like myself, will be able to do so,” Landquist said.

Confession reaction during 12-step program meeting riles readers Dear Abby: I’m writing about the letter you printed from “Somewhere in the South” (May 26) who heard someone confess to a crime he had committed at age 12 during one of his JEANNE Narcotics PHILLIPS Anonymous (NA) meetings. The person asked if he should go to the police. You advised him to talk about it to the “group leader.” Abby, in a 12-step program, there is no formal leader who has a

responsibility to report anything to the authorities. There are usually discussion groups led by someone chosen for the night. I am not condoning what the person did at that young age. It was a horrible act. But 12-step programs are based on ANONYMITY. Reporting what is heard at meetings is completely against what 12-step meetings are all about. It was unfair of you to place responsibility on someone who is there for his OWN addiction to tell on another group member. – Anonymous in the USA Dear Anonymous: I received a ton of criticism for my response to that

letter. Readers like you wrote to point out that I was misinformed about how these programs work; others berated me for not insisting the writer notify the police immediately. I was – and still am – of two minds on the question. While it would be satisfying to see “justice done,” I could not bring myself to recommend going against the principle upon which these 12-step programs that have helped thousands of people is based. Another principle of these programs is that people who have hurt others must make amends for what they have done.

A10 – Missoulian, Thursday, August 22, 2013



Look at the forklifts. Gone. – Sen. John Tester, while pointing to charred hulks of machinery in what had once been a tool shed during a tour of the Lolo Complex fire with Gov. Steve Bullock on Wednesday


“The good news is we actually are the top priority in the nation for resources,” incident commander Greg Poncin said during a briefing with Gov. Steve Bullock and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester at the Lolo command post. “So that bodes pretty well. The bad news is, the well is still pretty dry.” The governor and senator came to thank the firefighters and offer what resources their respective offices could provide. In Bullock’s case, a contingent of 90 state National Guard troops, including two Black Hawk helicopter teams, will be in place on Thursday. Tester asked for input on how federal logistics were working out. Then both men joined Missoula County Sheriff Carl Ibsen to see firsthand what the Lolo Creek Complex had already done on its 8,598-acre rampage. A 12-mile drive west on U.S. Highway 12 started in a bucolic rural landscape that soon switched to moonscape. The first roadside smokes could be seen on the hillsides north of Fort Fizzle, just four miles from Lolo. From there to Woodman Elementary School, much of the roadside was deliberately blackened by fire crews who had burned out grass and brush before embers from higher up the mountain could torch the creek bottom. Some spot fires did make it down the slopes on Tuesday night, forcing closure of Highway 12 just as Montana Department of Transportation officials hoped to start an escort car convoy to restore traffic to the Idaho border. “We had fire burning under wood decks, and under people’s eaves yesterday,” fire operations section chief Mark Goeller said Wednesday

Fire smolders on the edge of U.S. Highway 12 Wednesday afternoon at one of several areas where the flames burned to the edge of the pavement. afternoon. On the drive up the highway, several houses had blackened lawns and trees, but appeared otherwise undamaged. “A lot of that was good luck and good use of defensible space,” Ibsen said during the tour. “And there were fire trucks around lots and lots of houses last night.” At Mill Creek Road, eight miles west of Lolo, Ibsen said the forest was “a spectacular show of Roman candles” as trees torched along the hillside. Just beyond, Woodman School’s white belfry gleamed in the sun against a still-burning slope of timber. Fire crews had set burnouts along much of that area to keep the runaway fire from getting the upper hand. Next to the school, a herd of 150 cattle that had been evacuated from one pasture south of the highway to another on the north side grazed peacefully as trees burned just a few hundred yards away. A line of sprinklers kept their grass green and defended. Elk Meadows Road marked the spot where

ground crews made a desperate stand to check Monday’s firestorm. They successfully burned out much of the foliage on the road’s western side just as

the fire was at the height of its destruction. For the next three miles, devastation scarred both sides of the highway. “Look at the

capriciousness of the fire,” Ibsen said as he headed up the driveway of a ravaged home. “The little guesthouse and garage didn’t get it.” But the main house had nothing left standing but a stone chimney and a brick deck. “Look at the forklifts,” Tester said, pointing to the charred hulks of machinery in what had once been a tool shed. “Gone.” Nails and bolts littered the walkways around houses where every scrap of burnable material was vaporized. A nearby satellite dish looked untouched. “And all you have left is the barn,” Bullock observed. Ash was still falling on the scene as several trees on the hillsides flickered with stubborn flame. Sheriff’s deputies confirmed five homes on four properties burned to the ground in the fire, along with numerous outbuildings, vehicles and other possessions. In one case, a home with a wood shingle roof, outbuilding full of firewood and several other structures stood in the middle of its green lawn while the property 50 feet to the west was surrounded by trees and burned to the foundation. “This is a perfect example of what a little green grass and cutting the limbs up on the trees can do,” Ibsen said, pointing to the two homesites. “Green grass, no green grass.” In the blackened roadsides, Missoula Rural Electric Co-op and Blackfoot Telecommunications Group repair crews were reconnecting burned cables and replacing

power poles. The electricity lines had been burned through since Monday, depriving not only the Lolo Creek area but also the Powell Ranger District compound across the border in Idaho. Around Camp Creek Road and Bear Creek Road, the hillsides looked sterilized. Yet the creek bottoms still had green vegetation, and numerous homes survived the fire’s hottest thrust. Yellowshirted firefighters roamed from driveway to driveway, clearing tottering trees and mopping up smoldering hot spots. “God love ’em, but I don’t know what makes anyone want to be a firefighter,” Ibsen said. “Especially a wildland firefighter. It’s just nonstop.”

two miles downwind from the fire that evening while briefing the governor. “When humidities are in the teens, spotting is a very real problem,” Finney said. “In our forests here, most of the embers tend to be small twigs, round and glowing. They don’t last for long, but they may go several miles in extreme conditions.” Finney brings up the energy release component – an index based on the energy potential of fuels as related to dryness. Known as the ERC, it isn’t as high this year as last, Finney notes, and many fires haven’t experienced the run or intensity made by the Lolo fires this week. But the recipe for fire hasn’t changed since the dawn of man – fuel, oxygen and heat. Yet the science behind the study of fires has jumped lightyears ahead, thanks to new technology and the work of the Rocky Mountain Research Station. “It’s the same old ingredients – there’s nothing new here,” Finney said. “The thing we have to realize is that fires are inevitable. They’re impossible to completely exclude from the landscape. “By trying to do that and doing it so successfully, what we’ve done is saved up the fires for the worst conditions. When you get rid of all the fires under moderate conditions, all you have left are the extreme ones.”

Baucus, official put focus on Libby By VINCE DEVLIN of the Missoulian

LIBBY – Marilyn Tavenner has a picture of Lester Skramstad on her desk in Washington, D.C., even though she’s never met him – not in this life, anyway – and never will. She came as close as she could Wednesday morning. Tavenner, barely four months into her tenure as the nation’s top administrator for an $820 billion federal agency, the Centers for Medicare and

Head of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services gets firsthand look at asbestos problems Medicaid Services, stood at Skramstad’s grave in the Libby Cemetery on a beautiful August morning with U.S. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont. Skramstad is one of an estimated 3,000 victims of asbestos-related illnesses stemming from a vermiculite mine once operated in Libby by W.R. Grace & Co. – and one of more than 400 who have died because of it.

“Max wanted her to meet his friend Les,” said Gayla Benefield, one of Libby’s many asbestos victims, who organized the cemetery portion of Tavenner’s visit. Benefield’s father, Perley Vatland, worked in the mine for 19 years, was diagnosed in 1971 and died in 1974. Like Skramstad, who died in 2007, Vertland unknowingly dragged the deadly dust home from work with him – as did

many of the miners – and infected his family. Baucus met Skramstad over huckleberry pie and coffee in Benefield’s home in 2000, where about 20 local people “described the awful legacy of W.R. Grace,” according to Baucus’ office. The senator calls his meeting Skramstad a pivotal moment in his decision to champion the cause of Libby victims in the years since.

It was Baucus who gave Tavenner the picture of Skramstad in May, Baucus who grilled Tavenner about Medicare holding up other victims’ settlement payments during her confirmation hearings that same month, and Baucus who engineered her first-ever trip to Montana. “The first time I met Senator See LIBBY, Page B5

advantage of a poorly managed mineral lease program. The fault lies with the federal Bureau of Land Management, the primary coal-leasing agency in Montana and Wyoming, he said. A BLM spokeswoman in Billings said the agency is “committed to obtaining fair market value for federal coal resources” in the Powder River Basin in Montana and Wyoming.

The former president of the Missoula Horsemen’s Council, who stands charged with felony forgery and deceptive practices, said Wednesday that the accusations stem from the group’s infighting and disorganization – not from any misuse of county funds. Barbara Howell said that during an irrigation expansion project, she submitted a “pile of receipts” to Missoula County for reimbursement, and included in the receipts were two estimates of work and equipment provided by Mountain Supply and Ag Sales in the amount of $980.90 and $1,830.15. The council rents the Missoula Equestrian Park – which is county property. In the lease agreement, the county agreed to reimburse the council for two-thirds of all approved irrigation expansion projects. According to the affidavit outlining the charges against Howell, the checks allegedly sent to the businesses for irrigation equipment and work were forgeries, not true payments. “No such checks had ever been paid by the Horsemen’s Council to the named suppliers and no such debts for irrigation had ever been incurred,” the affidavit stated.

Experts: Government underpricing Montana coal By MIKE DENNISON Missoulian State Bureau

HELENA – A lawsuit against the Boy Scouts of America by five women who were sexually abused by a Kalispell Scout leader in the 1970s will move forward after a judge rejected arguments by the organization that time had run out on their claims. The attorney for the women, who are now in their 50s, said District Judge James Reynolds’ ruling means the case is now likely to go trial unless a settlement is negotiated. “Trial would be the best course in terms of getting the full story made public. A problem like child sexual abuse within a trusted institution can only be solved when it is fully understood, and can only be fully understood when the facts are all made public,” attorney Gilion Dumas said in an email to the Associated Press Tuesday. However, the court will likely require both sides to go through mediation or a settlement conference, she said. “If a negotiated settlement would help any of these women heal, then we must do what is best for them,” Dumas said.

Gordon Rubard, executive director of the Boy Scouts’ Montana Council, did not immediately return a call for comment Wednesday. He has previously said the safety and health of Boy Scouts members are the organization’s top priorities.

the ages of 11 and 15. The Explorer Scouts program was a Boy Scouts program developed for girls. Leininger was convicted in 1976 of abusing the five girls and a sixth who is not involved in the lawsuit. He was convicted again in 1982 of another charge of sexual intercourse without consent, and died in prison in 2002 at age 80. The women say in their lawsuit they only discovered in 2010 and 2011 the connection between their abuse as children and the physical, mental and emotional damage it has caused them to this day. The Boy Scouts failed to

The council has since reimbursed the county for the full amount.


The county reimbursed the council for $3,330.81, or two-thirds of the $4,996.22 in expenses that Howell submitted. “The whole thing was a bookkeeping mistake, and there was an audit done by a CPA,” Howell said. Howell explained that the volunteer organization was between bookkeepers – some of whom were inexperienced with QuickBooks – and she didn’t have enough time as a volunteer to adequately oversee the books. She acknowledges that in the submission to the county, it showed that two invoices had been paid that hadn’t actually been paid – one was for a donated pipe and another was an invoice for equipment that hadn’t been purchased yet. The affidavit contended that Howell submitted copies of two fictitious QuickBooks checks to Ag Sales and Mountain Supplies for reimbursement by the county – but Howell adamantly denies manufacturing the checks. She said she wasn’t sure when the entries into

protect them from predatory scoutmasters such as Leininger, the lawsuit says. The Boy Scouts argued the lawsuit is barred by the statute of limitations, which says an action must be brought within three years of the abuse. Reynolds wrote in his Aug. 15 order that Montana law also allows victims of childhood abuse to file a claim within three years after a person discovered an injury was caused by the abuse. The law is meant to allow an abuse victim to “connect the dots” between the abuse and later physical and generated, these pseudochecks had been submitted for reimbursement to the county.” Jeff Patterson ran against Schuler and was elected as the new council president. “What I have seen is copies of the checks that were never negotiated with the bank or vendor,” Patterson said. “There has never been any proof that she wrote the checks.” When Patterson took over in January, he walked into a snake pit of organizational infighting – described as a “catfight” by the council’s current vice president, Jim O’Reilly. Patterson said he was inundated with complaints of alleged crimes committed by Howell, but he’s slow to accuse Howell of criminal behavior or any misdoings. “I was a little surprised that charges were filed, but again I don’t know all the facts that investigating officers know,” Patterson said. Patterson has worked as private investigator for 30 years and is familiar with the judicial system. “I would absolutely not support that Barbi Howell is guilty of two felonies,”

psychological problems, Reynolds wrote. Also, the Boy Scouts did not disclose to what degree they were aware of the presence of predators in their ranks until 2010, Reynolds wrote. Documents on Leininger were among 14,500 pages of secret “perversion files” the Boy Scouts collected on Scout leaders who were suspected of sexual abuse. The files were shown to an Oregon jury in 2010 and released to the public last year under court order. The women filed their lawsuit in 2011. The file on Leininger was created after his Patterson said. He said that people within the organization are upset with each other and “are lashing out.” He said this kind of bickering is unproductive and as president of the council he is not taking any action against Howell, who was originally removed from the board and then reinstated, until due process determines her guilt or innocence. “I am not about to put anyone in the stocks or guillotine as the result of accusations by people who have long-standing contempt for each other,” he said.

There is good news and it comes in the form of a ‘fizzy’ drink called OPC Factor™, which quickly revitalizes your entire body and mind. Healthy Blood Sugar The ‘miracle’ is a powerful blend of all natural super antioxidants called oligomeric proanthocyanadins, or OPCs, including grape seed, green tea, pine bark, and red wine extracts, along with lemon bioflavonoids, resveratrol, and 30 naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

New York heart surgeon, Dr. Fred Vagnini.

Renowned New York heart surgeon, Dr. Fred Vagnini, confirms that “antioxidant therapy may support

healthy blood sugar levels.” “OPC Factor™ has helped balance my glucose levels. I sleep better and have more energy and good circulation,” says Charles Leavitt of Louisiana. “Excess sugar in your blood causes oxidation and inflammation which is a contributing factor to thick, sticky blood. Additionally, cellular damage could lead to kidney, nerve, heart, and blood vessel damage. OPC Factor™ greatly supports blood circulation which promotes healthy blood flow, crucial for those with blood sugar problems,” states Dr. Vagnini. No More Horse Pills to Swallow “Some pills and tablets have absorption rates as low as 2 to 20%,” says Dr. Vagnini. “OPC Factor’s™ formula is powered by a revolutionary, high-speed Isotonic ‘liquid’ delivery system. It mimics the body’s pH; having the same pH levels as blood and tears, the nutrients readily absorb at an amazing rate of 97%!” Results in Minutes! Actual blood scans taken twenty minutes apart

show how OPC Factor™ provides immediate support for healthy circulation. Clinical Study Proves It! “I can feel it when I drink it. It gives me a lot of energy,” says Ken Murdock. A National Institute of Health funded “Double Blind” clinical study published on July 2, 2008, supports customer claims about energy. And that may translate to better sleep, moods, and overall balance. Studies have found that free radicals produce oxidation that disrupts insulin sensitivity. OPCs (oligomeric proanthocyanadins) work 20-50 times faster than traditional antioxidants against oxidation. OPCs enhance insulin’s ability to support healthy blood sugar.

“The brain is over 90% fat, making it a perfect place for nasty free radicals to hide. They hitch a ride in your bloodstream and are transported into your brain where they create havoc. The free radicals affect your brain health by oxidizing fatty tissue,” adds Dr. Vagnini. The result of these OPCs penetrating the blood brain barrier and quenching the free radicals is quite astounding.

| OBITUARIES | Roy Vern Owings MISSOULA – Roy Vern Owings, 86, of Missoula, monumental husband, father, grandfather, greatgrandfather and great-greatgrandfather, went to be with his Redeemer on Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, with his loving family at his side. He was born June 21, 1927, at Wallum to Roy and Thelma Luella Owings. Roy attended schools at Wallum, Hedgesville and the log school at the mouth of Swimming Woman Canyon in the Snowy Owings Mountains. He received his education not only from the schools he attended, but from the people he deeply respected or disliked, the mountains he loved, the horses he owned, the trails he rode, the neighbors he had, the ranchers who hired and watched after him, the cars he drove, the oceans he sailed, the war he fought, the lands he saw, the timber he cut, the machinery he ran, and the machinery he could and couldn’t fix. In 1944, at age 17, he talked his mother into signing the authorization for him to join the U.S. Navy. He served as a machinist and was operating a landing craft preparing for the invasion of Japan at the end of World War II. He spoke remorsefully of messing up his mother’s trip to see him in San Diego when he “got in a fight with a bunch of guys, put in the brig and ‘shanghaied’ to China.” He finished his Navy career participating in the postwar atomic bomb tests (Operation Crossroads) at Bikini Atoll in the South Pacific and was honorably discharged in 1947. His next great adventure was beginning 65 years of marriage to Frances (Farra) in Harlowton. They made their first home in Franklin, where he dug a new hole for the outhouse to cover the first month’s rent. Roy used to fire up the gas-powered washing machine before he went to work at the flour mill in Harlowton. If it stayed running, the laundry would be done when he came home; if not, they would fire it up and try again. Their two children, Thelma Louise and Roy “Skip,” were born during this time. In 1952, Roy took his family to the Bitterroot Valley with his in-laws and went to work for Dick Rossignol Logging, where he spent the next 13 years working out of Lolo, Ovando and Plains. The year 1965 brought them to Missoula, where Roy

was a heavy equipment mechanic, eventually going to work as a field mechanic for Westmont Tractor Co. In the spring of 1969, he went to Lolo and told Dick Rossignol he wanted to “go loggin’.” Dick asked his wife Norma if they could handle the deal. She said yes, they wrote out a few papers on the kitchen table, shook hands and Roy Owings was “loggin’.” He was in the logging industry out of Missoula, East Glacier and Kalispell with his son and son-in-law Al Ray until 1978. Roy and Skip purchased Holms Equipment Co. in Missoula. Al Ray remained in the logging business until 2009. Roy loved to hunt, fish and camp. Special times to him were trips to the Snowy Mountains with anyone who would go along, but especially his grandsons. It was always a real plus if he could take his horse Rick O’Shay Bay. Anyone who knew Roy would soon learn of his devotion to God. He attended and served faithfully at the Blackfoot Valley Assembly of God in Ovando, Plains Assembly of God, Kalispell Christian Center and Missoula’s Christian Life Center, occasionally teaching Sunday school and serving on the various deacon boards over the years. Roy is survived by Frances, his devoted wife of 65 years; daughter, Thelma and her husband Al Ray of Kalispell; son, Roy “Skip” and his wife Judy of Missoula; grandchildren, Rita (Tyler) Fryberger of Ritzville, Wash., Allen (Marj) Ray of Kalispell, Vicki (Jay) Thompson of Lincoln, Wade (Richee) Ray of Great Falls, Roy “Chet” (Brianne) Owings of Seattle and Glenn (Liz) Owings of Bondurant, Wyo.; 12 greatgrand children; and two greatgreat-grandchildren. Also surviving him are three sisters, Hazel (Carl) Hinderager of Great Falls, Thelma (Kent) Hane of Fort Shaw and Darlene (Gary) Kunkel Davies of Spokane; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his father, Roy in 1935; mother, Thelma Luella Owings Kunkel; stepfather, Tobias Kunkel; three sisters, Emerald Miller, Polly Riggs Berry and Anna “Pug” DeBuff; two stepbrothers, Ross and Lloyd Kunkel; and sister, Edna Totdahl. Private graveside services will be held Friday, Aug. 23, at the Western Montana State Veterans Cemetery. A celebration of Roy’s life will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, at the Christian Life Center, 3801 S. Russell St. Memorials in Roy’s name can be made to Christian Life Center, 3801 S. Russell St., Missoula, MT 59801. Arrangements are under the care of Garden City Funeral Home.

We’re all PRIME Act will save us money in this D together T

he world is a ghetto. That is, yes, the title of an old song by War. It is also the reality presented by “Elysium,” the new film by director Neill Blomkamp. It posits a ruined Earth in the year 2154, overcome by overcrowding, disease and environmental and economic collapse. Los Angeles is a dusty brown shantytown where people live on top of one another like some favela in Rio. Then the camera takes you up to the orbiting habitat to which the wealthy have decamped, Elysium. It’s Latin for paradise, and that’s what this is, LEONARD assuming your idea of PITTS JR. paradise is a McMansion with a manicured lawn the size of a city park where you live a life of vaguely sterile luxury. Blomkamp has given us a tale perfect for these political times. It is an allegory of income disparity, a cautionary saga of what happens when more and more resources are concentrated in fewer and fewer hands. One of those resources is adequate health care. On Earth, if you get sick, you fill out a form and try not to die in the waiting room before the doctor gets around to you. On Elysium, they have this device that can instantly cure anything from lymphoma to radiation poisoning. Our hero, Max, afflicted with the latter and given just days to live, resolves to somehow make his way up there so that he can be healed. The movie’s political implications have not escaped the conservative punditocracy. Rush Limbaugh pronounced it “anti-capitalist, prosocialism.” But some in the liberal punditocracy have also been displeased. Alyssa Rosenberg of ThinkProgress scored the movie for failing to “speak truth to power” in its silence on the causes of the inequities it depicts. There are elements of truth in both arguments. But the movie actually seems determined to make another point altogether, albeit one that probably flies under the radar because of its very simplicity: We’re all in this thing together. So the space station is not just a space station. It is the science-fiction equivalent of the gated community. Or of America as viewed from some Mexican hovel. And Max is not just a guy with a gun who storms the space station. He is the man standing outside the gate, the poor woman fording the Rio Grande. We have been conditioned by years of conservative dogma to view such people with scorn, as too stupid, too lazy or too lacking in foresight to rise above their circumstances – “takers” to use some Fox “News” terminology. Crippled by an “entitlement mentality” to use some more. By the inverse of that logic we, because we live north of the border, within the gate or on the space station, were obviously far-sighted, energetic and smart enough to steer the proper course. What narcissistic balderdash. Yes, initiative, intelligence and planning are all elements of success. But luck is, too, whether defined as getting a good break someone else did not get or escaping a bad one someone else could not avoid. Point being, the membrane that divides have from have not is thinner and more permeable than those lords of self-satisfaction who go on Fox preaching the gospel of “up by my bootstraps” would have you believe. Our shared humanity demands a compassion, an ability to give a damn about those have nots, not often evident in such lectures. Martin Luther King said it thusly: “All life is interrelated.” Meaning, what affects some of us will eventually affect us all. We must evolve humane and effective means of managing that inevitable reality. The fantasy of escaping it behind an impermeable barrier is just that, fantasy. Because the people caught on the outside will always do what Max does, what you or I would do in the same situation: try to find a way in. The question is not whether they will get in. It’s how we will treat them when they do.

espite these late-summer days of congressional inaction, a bipartisan measure – concerning Medicare and Medicaid, no less – is gaining traction in Congress. The Preventing and Reducing Improper Medicare Expenditures Act of 2013, or PRIME Act, has been picking up an increasing number of supporters in both the House and Senate since identical bills were introduced on June 10. This summer hasn’t been known for congressional achievement. Congress is in recess for nearly the entire month of August. Nevertheless, H.R. 2305 now has 32 cosponsors in the House (23 Republican and nine Democratic) and S.1123 has cosponsors in the Senate (13 Republican and 10 Democratic). Among them are Montana’s Sen. Jon Tester. He signed on as a cosponsor July 15, making him the only congressional representative from Montana to do so – so far. The PRIME Act is aimed at cutting down on waste, fraud and abuse of Medicare and Medicaid. It changes nothing about the Medicare and Medicaid benefits system, but it does promise to save untold amounts of taxpayer money by making it harder to misuse funds – either intentionally or unintentionally. Both government health insurance programs have long been a favorite target for con artists and thieves. One popular

ver wonder why government programs are so rife with waste, fraud and abuse? Consider what’s been happening with the Affordable Care Act. The administration recently announced that it was reducing by 33 percent – from 30 hours down to 20 – the required training for the law’s navigators, individuals paid to help Americans enroll in the health care act’s new entitlements. The administration has thrown numerous other requirements overboard in its drive to get the law’s exchanges up and running by Oct. 1. Unfortunately, many of the requirements being jettisoned were designed to ensure taxpayer dollars are spent properly. As a result, the law is shaping up as a fraudster’s paradise – a potential “Wild West” where individual citizens and taxpayers as a whole can easily get scammed. Take the administration’s decision to put Americans on the “honor system” when it comes to qualifying for exchange subsidies next year. That decision will have two significant effects. The law says that only individuals who lack access to “affordable” coverage through their employers should qualify

for the subsidies. But in reality, the administration will have to take applicant’s claims at face value, because they won’t be able verify their accuracy. As the Associated Press noted, “a scofflaw could lie, and there’s no easy way to check” – a great recipe for fraud. Second, the administration will conduct limited checks of applicants’ income, giving individuals a strong incentive to under-report their earnings on their application, to receive the maximum possible insurance subsidy. Individuals can lowball their income numbers on the application, and receive thousands – even tens of thousands – of dollars in taxpayerfunded insurance subsidies. While those who receive subsidies improperly will have to pay some of the subsidies back, in many cases individuals can receive much more in improper subsidies than Obamacare ever requires them to repay. You might think that the federal government itself, or its contractors creating the exchanges, would have the tools to protect taxpayer dollars from being abused through these loopholes. But the contractor that just won a multiyear contract valued at up to $1 billion to verify exchange applicants’ claims was just placed under investigation in Britain for over-billing the British government to the tune of tens of millions of pounds. Only under Obamacare can a

for fraud company under investigation for fraud in Britain serve as the contractor designed to protect American taxpayers from fraudulent claims by subsidy applicants. More than three years ago, Nancy Pelosi famously claimed that we had to pass the law to find out what’s in it. Over the past several months, we have seen a series of announcements and policies that show why it could be a fraudster’s dream – and a nightmare for the American taxpayers who will pay the bill for con artists’ scams. It’s one more reason why Congress should refuse to spend a single dime implementing this unworkable law.

HOMELAND SECURITY Land grab is scary news Re: Homeland Security 100-mile takeover. Over the past three years, you have printed some helpful and important information about the Department of Homeland Security’s takeover of the 100 miles around the U.S. border, with specific details of what else this would involve. I will refer you to the articles and dates published. I am sure you can look it up in the newspaper files. Wednesday, Sept.28, 2011, guest column, “Rehberg’s security bill is scary stuff.” June 21, 2012: “Protesters ‘fence in’ Rehberg office,” by Rob Chaney. June 20, 2012: “Don’t sacrifice natural heritage for national security,” Arlo Skari and John Ladd. June 20, 2012: “House votes to ease rules near border: Measure would bypass environmental laws to expedite national security,” by Tristan Scott. July 18, 2012: Guest column, C.Burt Caldwell, “HR15O5 a vague, dangerous bill.” Dec. 24, 2012: “Ranchers split over U.S. Border Security,” Olan-Elliot Spagat, AP. Feb. 15: “Tester named to new committees, subcommittees” (subcommittee on government efficiency and effectiveness). Another Rehberg act I disagree with: Sept. 14, 2011, “Rehberg bill requires request for designation; Measure would remove power (to designate national monuments in Montana) from presidents,” by Chaney. I find this scary news indeed and reminds me we need to keep informed and mindful of what our elected officials are doing. I disagree and disapprove of doing any of this takeover it reminds me of preWorld War II when German Nazi and Soviet land takeovers happened. I hope the Missoulian will continue to share information on this topic with its readers. M.M. Plouzek, Missoula

WILDFIRES Officials not so very helpful I am writing regarding the article by Martin Kidston, “Crews brace for wind” (Aug. 16). The text states that stage 1 fire restrictions are in effect, which includes open flames, etc., being prohibited. Last weekend I stood in my driveway around 10 p.m. and watched as my neighbor blew off bottle rockets into the dry brush for more than 20 minutes. We live in the interface where it is tinder dry. In fact, the week prior, evacuations were taking place not more than two miles away as the crow flies. The reason I am writing is that we called tribal fire and explained what was going on. Tribal fire seemed to think that this situation was humorous, and laughed in our faces on the phone. I quote them in their response: “I hope your place does not burn down sir ... have a nice night ...” The local fire marshall was no better. His response was a sarcastic, “What do you want me to do, write them a citation?” I am tired of the light in which these people are presented in your newspaper. My respect goes to the men and women actually on the lines saving lives and property, although I do not agree with any firefighter losing his or her life to save a structure. I take responsibility for doing everything I can to have a fighting chance if a fire moves through. What makes me angry is the paper pushing bureaucrats in charge of fire management. They are far from the upright individuals you quote in your paper. Rude, uncaring, irresponsible and heartless would be a better description. Scott Fitzgerald, St. Ignatius

that served 99,000 patients last year, almost half of whom did not have health insurance. The Libby center served 6,000 patients in 2012 according to Baucus’ office, or more than 30 percent of Lincoln County’s total population. But for many people in this county, of course, health care revolves around asbestos-related disease. Lester Skramstad, Benefield said, spent only two years working in the mine in the 1950s. In the years after Skramstad was diagnosed, his wife and four of his five children were, too. Brent Skramstad is buried behind his father’s grave in the Libby Cemetery. He died of asbestos-related disease in 2009, at the age of 51. When she helped put up white crosses in the cemetery in 2005 to mark the graves of all the people who died because of the vermiculite, Benefield said 265 were needed. “Now it’d take more than 400,” she said. “My parents’ generation have all died, now we have ones in their 20s coming through and being diagnosed. That’s my grandchildren’s generation – that’s four generations.” Libby CARD Clinic officials report approximately 40 new cases of asbestos-related disease per month. That’s why Baucus said he keeps Skramstad’s picture in his office, and gives the same picture to high-ranking federal officials such as Tavenner. “It reminds me of Libby,” he said, “and it reminds me why we have these jobs.”

Medicare and Medicaid Services has the authority to change that.


Baucus, (Libby) was one of the first things we discussed,” Tavenner said. Montana’s senior senator, who will not seek a seventh term in 2014, has hauled everyone from White House Cabinet secretaries to the head of the Environmental Protection Agency to Libby so they could see firsthand what happened to this town. “The U.S. government is so big that things get lost in the shuffle, things get high-centered,” Baucus, chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance, said later at lunch at the Libby Café. “You have to focus on it relentlessly. Libby is a small part of our state, a small part of our country, but it’s a big, big need. “You have to keep your eye on the ball, keep bugging people about health care, about getting people screened, about getting this cleaned up. These people deserve justice.” Libby asbestos victims receive health care coverage under Medicare due to a provision Baucus wrote in the Affordable Care Act. One of Baucus’ goals with Tavenner’s visit is to convince her to expand additional Medicare benefits to victims who have moved out of the area. The pilot program pays for expenses Medicare normally denies, but only victims living in Lincoln and Flathead counties currently qualify. Libby asbestos victims who no longer live in either county can’t receive the special home care services, special medical equipment, help with travel to get care, special counseling, nutritional supplements and prescription drugs not covered by Medicare drug plans. The Centers for

Tavenner indicated the change would come, and within months, not years. “Certainly before the end of the year,” she said. “I have a feeling the chairman will make sure I do.” After hearing from Benefield and other asbestos victims and survivors of victims at the cemetery, Tavenner visited the Center for Asbestos Related Disease Clinic in Libby. “I’ve heard from the families, now I want to hear the clinical side,” said Tavenner, a nurse by training. “I want to get their feedback. Are they getting what they need?” Baucus was pleased that a backlog in CMS cases that had held up settlement payments from W.R. Grace for victims has largely vanished in the four months since Tavenner took over. Medicare had to collect its qualifying expenses from the settlements before victims could be paid. “What’s tragic is some folks died before they got their payments,” Baucus said, “but the backlog is almost down to zero.” In addition to learning about asbestos-related issues, Tavenner used her day in Libby to visit the Lincoln County Community Health Center and find out how implementation of the Affordable Care Act – better known as “Obamacare” – is working for a rural clinic. “It’s important for folks in Washington to get out from behind their desks and see what’s working, and what isn’t, on the ground in places like rural Montana,” said Baucus, a primary architect of the legislation. Montana has 17 community health centers

Forests push to list cabins in the Bob on National Register By MARTIN KIDSTON of the Missoulian

SCAPEGOAT WILDERNESS – When the Falls Point fire closed in on the North Fork Cabin last summer, fire crews wrapped the station in silver foil and surrounded it with a sprinkler system. The blaze changed directions and the rustic log building survived another summer. It’s now eight decades old – not bad for a remote cabin built in fire country on the Lolo National Forest. Placed on a bench near the North Fork of the Blackfoot River prior to 1931, the cabin is one of dozens scattered across the Bob Marshal Marshall Wilderness Complex – a swath of 1.5 million acres spanning Montana’s Northern Rockies. The complex encompasses four national forests, including the Lolo, Lewis and Clark, Helena and the Flathead, the latter racing to list its network of 18 cabins and ranger stations on the National Register of Historic Places in time for the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Wilderness Act. “You’ve got to do the history first and document what’s out there now compared to what was there originally – what’s intact and the integrity of location,” said Flathead National Forest archaeologist Timothy Light. “You’ve got to put

Fires nature’s way of saying we’re not in charge I GREG TOLLEFSON

have been one of those who was beginning to think the Missoula Valley was going to escape the summer without experiencing much of the acrid smoke of fires that so many others have experienced the past couple of months. We have come to expect that smoke comes with summer in western Montana, but here in Missoula, we haven’t had those familiar unpleasant days when the smoke is impossible to ignore. I was disabused of that notion about 3 a.m. Tuesday.

That’s when I awoke to the drone of the fan in my bedroom window with the distinct sour taste of ash in my mouth. Smoke from the Lolo Creek fires had settled into the valley, and the fan was no longer simply blowing cool air into the room. It was filling my house with the residue of the fire, and I could feel the microscopic grit on my skin. I stumbled out of bed, turned off the fan, then stood at the kitchen sink for a time drinking glasses of cold water to wash the foul taste

from my mouth. After that, I couldn’t get back to sleep. And until the smoke retreated a bit around dawn, my whole house reeked of a cold campfire. The fire was all over the news Monday evening, and the roiling plume of smoke had loomed ominously to the southwest as day faded away. But to the north, there was still blue sky. Of course, I should have known it would change during the night, and I wasn’t really surprised to wake to a

different world. By dawn, blue sky was still visible to the north, although a bit hazy. To the south, a wall of grim darkness hung over that end of the valley obliterating the usual views of Lolo Peak and the mountains beyond. On the city streets, we went about our business all day, keeping an eye on the sickly, sometimes mustardylooking cloud licking at the southern edges of town. As evening See FIRES, Page C3

Flathead derby will be test of whitefish bite L

ast week, I wrote that some whitefish were being caught on Flathead Lake. Dick Zimmer of Zimmer Tackle in Pablo, Jim Vashro of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks MARK Region 1, WARD and Chancy Jeshke from Snappy Sport Senter in Kalispell all said anglers had been catching whitefish in various spots on the lake. This weekend should

give us an opportunity to see year is for real. That’s because the annual Whitefish Jigfest and Mack Attack will take place on Flathead Lake on Saturday and Sunday. The fishing derby is put on by Gene Fincher and is based out of the Vista Linda Cactus Cantina in Somers on the north end of the lake. The top five whitefish will take home cash. In the lake trout category, prizes will be awarded for the largest lake trout by weight over 36 inches as well as the five largest lake trout 28 inches and under by weight. You can even win cash by catching the

largest northern pike minnow. The fishing contest will run from 8 a.m. 2 p.m. both days with a fish fry after the awards ceremony Sunday afternoon. Tickets to enter are $25 and can be purchased at Zimmer Tackle, Snappy Sport Senter and Sportsman Ski Haus in Kalispell, as well as the Vista Linda or by calling Fincher at (406) 2616445. In other fishing news. a couple of anglers from Kalispell took the Montana Walleye Circuit Angler of the Year award. “The cream always rises to the top,” tournament

co-director Dale Gilbert said in describing the performance of Jason Mundel and Bob Hickey. Hickey and Mundel won Angler of the Year and Team of the Year again for the Montana Walleye Circuit. Angler of the Year honors are given to the team that has the top cumulative score after fishing all of the walleye tournaments in the circuit, which took place at Canyon Ferry Reservoir, Fresno Reservoir, Tiber Dam and the the west end of Fort Peck Reservoir out of Forchette Bay. If you want to fly fish, then try the local rivers in the morning. This time of

year it’s a little less crowded and the fishing can still be good. The Rock Creek Fisherman’s Merc had this to say about fishing on Rock Creek: “The few people that have been up here have been doing pretty well, still mostly with caddis and mayflies. Mornings seem to be the best now, so get out as soon as you can and throw big nymphs until you start to see the small dries flying. A size 16 PMD with a CDC cripple behind it has been a particularly lethal combination at dawn and for the next couple hours afterward. The nymphing

is still consistent all day, with small pheasant tails, San Juans and doublebead prince nymphs getting the most action. Black woolly buggers have also been catching on as of late, so there’s an option for you streamer fans out there.” If you like to fly fish from a float tube, you might try your luck on Georgetown Lake.

Man goes lake to lake by SUP By BRETT FRENCH Billings Gazette

BILLINGS – When you visit the outdoors, the trip is all about adaptation – making changes to fit into a different environment. The way outdoor folks adapt, though, is endlessly varied. Take Sean Jansen, for example. He decided that for his 25th birthday he wanted to use his oceangrade stand-up paddleboard to row the six miles from Lewis Lake to Shoshone Lake in Yellowstone National Park for an overnight fishing trip. “It was a trial run for me,” he said from Bozeman, where he’s temporarily relocated. Shoshone Lake is the second largest lake in Yellowstone and measures

200 feet deep. It is an 8,000-acre tributary of the Snake River that sits at about 7,800 feet. At such a high altitude, it’s often late in spring before the lake’s winter ice cover recedes, so the water remains cold into the summer. The nearly 7-mile long body of water is also unique because at the southwest end of the lake is a geyser basin that also contains mud pots and hot springs. The route from Lewis Lake to Shoshone Lake is a popular one for canoers and kayakers, a short jaunt that requires an upstream paddle on a channel between the two. Motorized boats are not allowed on the channel or in Shoshone Lake. Although Jansen’s nearly 12-foot-long, 5-inch thick SUP was made for the

Hyalite Lake, located south of town, five or six times a week for exercise. SUPs are not made for overnight tours, so Jansen had to adapt. He stowed his camping and camera gear in two dry bags and carried his fishing gear in a backpack. “I packed real light,” he Courtesy photo said, estimating his total Sean Jansen loaded up his stand-up paddleboard for an gear weight at about 50 overnight solo trip from Lewis Lake to Shoshone Lake in pounds.

Jansen has been paddling for about four years and has been surfing since he was a child growing up in San Clemente, Calif., so balancing on a board is second nature. “There was no stress other than I was out there on my own in bear country,” he said. “That was my first time by myself. Usually when I go into the backcountry, I try to get as many people to go as possible for protection.” Besides carrying him and his gear to Shoshone Lake, the SUP also came in handy to fish the water after he arrived. “Fishing was excellent,” he said. “I caught a few on dry flies, but mostly I caught them on streamers.”

Expert offers dos and don’ts of using bear spray By BRETT FRENCH Billings Gazette

BILLINGS – The two times that Chuck Bartlebaugh has been charged by bears, he put his thumb down on his bear spray trigger and held it tightly for 45 seconds. “It didn’t come up until I had to change my underwear,” he joked. Humor aside, Bartlebaugh, of the education group, said there’s been a lot of misinformation on television programs, in advertisements and even in literature used by government field workers

on how to properly react to bears in the wild and how to effectively use bear spray as a deterrent to an attack. “I’m really concerned about the direction we’re taking with bear spray,” he said recently at Cabela’s in Billings, where he gave demonstrations and handed out literature. Here are some points Bartlebaugh wants to emphasize: n There is only one type of spray effective on bears: bear sprays that are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. Personal defense sprays aren’t made for bears.

n Some bear spray manufacturers and television programs have suggested spraying in oneto two-second bursts as a warning when a bear is more than 50 feet away and not acting aggressively. Bartlebaugh disagrees. “Bear spray is designed to work on bears attacking or charging,” he said. Spraying unaggressive bears does nothing to halt attacks, he added. n Bears should not be treated like domestic animals, toyed with, teased or fed by hand. All such actions, glorified in some television shows, can lead

to bears becoming conditioned to human foods or attacking people for food rewards. Here’s what Bartlebaugh says backcountry hikers and hunters need to know about bear spray. n They need to have the canisters handy and practice drawing and releasing the trigger lock so they don’t fumble around during an actual charge. “You need to think through this scenario so you know how to respond,” Bartlebaugh said. n The spray should be directed downward and painted left to right to

create a cloud that the bear runs through, preferably at a distance of about 30 feet so the spray has time to affect the bear’s lungs, throat and eyes. Depress the trigger for about 7 seconds. “If it’s a full charge you need to have that spray out there,” Bartlebaugh said. People sometimes don’t hold the canisters tightly enough and end up spraying too high. “That explains why some people claim it doesn’t work,” he said. While spraying, yell “No!” to indicate you’re not to be messed with. If attacked, lie still on your stomach and cover your

neck with your hands. One problem with bear spray is it doesn’t work well in the wind, which can move or disperse the cloud. Agencies and experts agree that avoidance is the best tactic. Hike in groups, make noise, avoid any signs of fresh animal kills, hang or store food away from bears when camping, and do not approach bears in the wild. “Right now in Glacier Park people are watching a grizzly bear near a trail with nothing happening,” Bartlebaugh said. “There’s no need to spray them, and there’s no need to be alarmed.”

approached, the glow of the fire became visible. Friend Louie and I first saw distant flames as we walked across the Higgins Avenue Bridge. The sun was an angry orange ball as it slipped from view. With darkness, the flames became more visible on the distant ridges, and I was among many who took a drive to the top of Mansion Heights to get a better view. Down below, the lights of Missoula twinkled through a thin haze. But off to the southwest, bright flames pierced the darkness, stretching along the mountain spine in a long line, like an advancing army. As swirling smoke obscured some of the flames, others brightened. People watched in silence. It was hard to turn away

and go home. I went to bed Tuesday night without turning on my window fan. I tossed and turned for a while, thinking about the awesome natural forces at play just over the mountains to the south. And I remembered that it was on Aug. 20, 1910, that dozens of wildfires that had been smoldering for weeks across the mountains of Montana and Idaho were whipped into fiery frenzy by great winds, and in a matter of hours grew into a firestorm that blackened a vast swath of the landscape. Vestiges of that fire are still plainly visible in the high country along the Montana-Idaho border, more than 100 years later. Then and now, when these great natural forces are fully unleashed, be they fire, rain, wind, flood or drought, they continue to remind us that we humans and our efforts to

The North Fork station is located nine miles southwest of the Carmichael guard station. The strategic placement – approximately one day’s travel apart – is a defining feature of these historic, intermittent stations. – Sydney Bacon, archaeologist with Lolo National Forest said Sydney Bacon, an archaeologist with the Lolo National Forest. “The strategic placement – approximately one day’s travel apart – is a defining feature of these historic, intermittent stations.” The National Register nomination for the Bob Marshal Wilderness Complex identifies 14 historic structures scattered across the wilderness. Six fire lookouts were built at the height of the lookout era, but just one remains, along with most of the early cabins. The Carmichael Sheep Co. built its namesake cabin in the 1920s. The

Forest Service acquired the structure when the company abandoned it, just as it did the nearby North Fork Cabin – the agency snapped that up as a land grant from the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1923. While the Forest Service believes the North Fork station was primarily associated with fire protection, the cabin – like so many others – was likely used for winter game counts in the 1920s and ’30s as well. In the late 1920s, Light said, most of the historic cabins were incorporated into the “Continental Unit” – a radio network of

control and direct these forces will always be insignificant. It is as if nature is telling us once again, “You are not in charge here, folks.” However, when one considers the miserable legacy of the human race’s stewardship of the natural world, there is some solace in knowing that, at least there is for me. When I turned off the lights, I thought about the firefighters still at work up there in the incredible heat and smoke on the mountain, doing whatever they can to protect life, limb and property for the rest of us. I was thankful they were there, and thankful to be snug and safe in my own home and not among the many who have had to leave their homes in Lolo Creek to find safety elsewhere. As I write these words on Wednesday morning, the sky over my house seems blue enough. The cool air smells of smoke

today, but it’s not overwhelming. And to the southwest, from my vantage point, the fire appears to have calmed down some overnight. I am aware that this may be nothing more than a “sucker hole,” teasing me into thinking the worst is over in Lolo Creek. Heat and wind in the afternoon could stir things up dramatically. By the time you read this, there will most certainly be more to the story. As for me, well, I am imagining myself camped out on a mountain lake where it is high and cool and smoke-free. If you have any suggestions, let me know.

On the Flathead at least, roughly 45 miles of ground return phone line remains in use, Light said. The last of its kind, it connects the Black Cabin with the Salmon Forks, Big Prairie, Basin and Danaher cabins. “In the early years, the cabins were built to help the Forest Service manage the backcountry,” Light said. “After the 1910 burn, we started focusing on fire suppression and the cabins became more important.” Light said the Flathead is nominating up to 18 different stations on three separate drainages, including South Fork of the Flathead, the Spotted Bear River and the Challenge Creek areas. “Most were built

Tips for Safe Classified Advertising

The Missoulian wants to protect all our customers. Please remember these few tips when buying or selling through Missoulian Classifieds •Deal locally with people you meet in person. •Never wire or send funds. •Fake cashier checks &sr money orders are common-the bank will hold you responsible. •Never give out financial information. •Avoid deals involving shipping or escrow services.

Area Phone Prefixes 961............................Corvallis 821................................Darby 273....................Florence/Lolo 363,375....................Hamilton 777......................Stevensville 642................................Victor *Due to number portability, some numbers may have been transferred to a new location.

•Warm weather can be fatal for dogs left in cars. When it's 85 degrees outside, the inside of a car can reach 102 degrees in 10 minutes, even with the windows cracked open! •If you see a distressed dog in a hot car, call Missoula Animal Control, the police, or 911. Go into the nearest business and ask the manager to make an announcement. •If your dog is overcome by heat, soak the dog with water and seek vet care. Thank you from Missoula Animal Control.

In 2012, Montana State Parks acquired 24 acres of land, the Visitor Center and Museum, with no state funds being used, as additions to Travelers' Rest State Park. The water supply for the Visitor Center is currently a well shared with the former landowners and does not meet the requirements for a public water supply.

An estimated cost for this project is $25,000, to be paid for from Parks Division major maintenance funding.


Brand New!

Montana State Parks ( is seeking public comment on a draft Environmental Assessment proposal to connect the Travelers' Rest State Park Visitor Center, that includes a museum and office space, to the Lolo Water District. Travelers' Rest State Park is located in Lolo, Montana.

This project would provide a 2" diameter water line from the Lolo Water District main line located at US Highway 12, approximately 1/3 mile in length, to connect to the Visitor Center. Installing the water line will require excavation of a trench 6' deep along the current park entry road to the visitor center - approximately 1800 feet in length. The excavated area will be re-graded and re-seeded when complete.

O’s road woes continue Hilliard’s season ends early Missoulian


Missoula's Yorman Garcia hits a double in the top of the second inning to drive in one run during Wednesday's game against the Grand Junction Rockies in Grand Junction, Colo.

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – There’s no worse place for the Missoula Osprey to be as they struggle to remain relevant in a playoff race than out on the road. The worst team in the Pioneer League away from home, the Osprey dropped the opener of a nine-game road trip Wednesday against Grand Junction, 8-4. Missoula’s road record fell another rung to 8-18 overall this season. The Osprey (23-36, 7-14 in second half) have yet to win a game away from the confines of OgrenAllegiance Park in Missoula during the second half. They need to start winning now – regardless of locale – if there’s any hope of playing beyond the first week of September. With a Great Falls Voyager win Wednesday,

Missoula is 11 games back, way down in the dungeon of the North Division. Missoula is 0-7 while playing in the Rockies 8, visitors’ dugout Osprey 4 since the league’s season flipped to its Thursday Missoula second half — all (Jameson 2-0) while splitting at at Grand Junction home 7-7. That (Balog 0-2) included a 3-of-4 Suplizio Field 7:05 p.m. series win against Radio: ESPN these very same Montana Rockies just last (97.5 FM) week.

Jets place ex-Flathead, Grizzly star on season-ending IR with broken shoulder Associated Press

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – New York Jets fullback Lex Hilliard was placed on seasonending injured reserve Wednesday, a day after seriously injuring his shoulder at practice. The team didn’t announce the nature or severity of the injury, but a person familiar with the situation told the Associated Press that Hilliard has a broken shoulder blade that requires surgery. Hilliard is expected to have surgery to repair the shoulder next week. Hilliard went down in a heap after a running play Tuesday, writhing in pain as trainers rushed over to him. He stayed down for several minutes, kicking his legs as he was being checked on. Hilliard was eventually able to walk off the field with the help of trainers – appearing to favor his right shoulder – before being carted to the locker room. Pro Football Talk first reported Wednesday morning that Hilliard would need season-ending surgery. See EARLY, Page D4

WELL-DRILLED WIDEOUTS boost their chemistry with Griz QB Jordan Johnson By BILL SPELTZ of the Missoulian


arly summer school set a tone for Montana’s 2013 passing attack. Not the kind with books, desks and teachers. These were voluntary player-run practices three times a week in June and July that helped Griz quarterback Jordan Johnson establish chemistry with a stable of promising receivers. “I think it helped a lot because now our new offense with new terminology is like second nature,” said senior wideout Cam Warren, who had several sparkling 15-yard catches in a crowd during Wednesday morning’s practice. Johnson says the extra work put in by Montana’s quarterbacks and almost all of their potential pass-catchers was unique. “We’d come out and try to simulate one of these (August) practices to the best of our ability,” he said. “It really helped because the offense does have a lot of

The biggest thing with receivers at this level is they not only have to be able to run and catch but they have to be very intelligent because there’s a lot of movement, a lot of different alignments, a lot of different personnel groups. What they’ve done that’s really good and (receivers) Coach (Torrey) Myers has done a great job with is he’s got those guys focused into knowing what they’re doing, knowing where to line up and then go.

volume to it. We were kind of able to hit the ground running when fall camp started.” Montana graduated its top two receivers of 2012 in wideout Sam Gratton and tight end Greg Hardy. The Griz return battle-tested sophomore speedster Ellis Henderson, who has dazzled on deep routes in practice and is expected to start along with steady Warren and speedy sophomore Taylor Walcott. After a season in which the wide receivers largely under-achieved with Trent McKinney and Shay SmithwickHann at quarterback, Henderson is looking forward to 2013. That’s not to say McKinney and Smithwick-Hann are incapable. It’s just that Johnson is exceptional. “The moment I met Jordy I just feel like we’ve connected,” Henderson said. “I hang

Still some work ahead for Woods in FedEx Cup By DOUG FERGUSON Associated Press

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – This might be the best way to measure Tiger Woods’ season: Sam Snead is getting more The Barclays attention than Golf Channel, Jack Nicklaus. 1 p.m. Woods said again on Wednesday at The Barclays that this already has been a great season, and it’s difficult to

argue. His five wins – including two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship – are three more than anyone else on the PGA Tour. He is leading all the right indicators, such as the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, the money list ($2.6 million more than anyone else) and the No. 1 seed going into the FedEx Cup playoffs that start Thursday. The standard for Woods, however, always has been the

majors, and he was shut out for the fifth straight year. “His lack of winning a major is the only thing talked about, which I think is sad,” Bill Haas said. “I think it’s ignorant. But that’s what we are basing his year on. He may even say, ‘Oh, I’m disappointed because I didn’t win a major.’ But he’s not winning the smaller events. He’s winning the WGCs and Bay Hill. And yes, it makes what he’s doing that much more

impressive, absolutely.” Woods is stuck on 14 majors, leaving him four short of the Nicklaus standard. The five wins this year, after three wins in 2012, has put him at 79 career wins, moving him closer to Snead’s record 82 wins on the PGA Tour. “I tell you what, I never thought I would ever get there this quick,” Woods said. “It’s been an amazing run to get here.

Ex-Montana kicker Dan Carpenter watches from the sideline during the second half of the Miami Dolphins’ preseason game Aug. 9 in Jacksonville, Fla. Carpenter, who was cut by the Dolphins last week, signed with Arizona on Wednesday.

Carpenter to compete with Feely again Ex-Griz signs with Cardinals, puts pressure on kicker he once beat out in Miami By BOB BAUM Associated Press

GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Arizona Cardinals have signed Dan Carpenter to compete with Jay Feely as the team’s kicker. Carpenter was released by the Miami Dolphins a week ago. He signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted rookie in 2008 and, coincidentally, took Feely’s job away from him there that season. At 37, Feely is 10 years older than Carpenter. “As you get older, you have to prove that you still have it and that you can still do the job and do a great job at it,” Feely said before Wednesday’s practice. “That’s what I’ve been trying to do every day.” In Miami, Carpenter lost out to Caleb Sturgis, a fifth-round draft pick in the NFL Draft last spring. Carpenter made 22 of 27 field goals last season. Feely made 25 of 28. For their careers, Carpenter has made 81.9 See CARPENTER, Page D4

| BRIEFS | NATIONAL Sharapova withdraws from U.S. Open NEW YORK (AP) – A person who works at the U.S. Tennis Association says 2006 champion Maria Sharapova is withdrawing from the U.S. Open because of a right shoulder injury. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday on condition of anonymity because Sharapova’s withdrawal had not yet been announced. Sharapova has played only one match on tour since her second-round loss at Wimbledon in June. Sharapova was seeded third at the U.S. Open. The draw for the year’s last Grand Slam tournament is Thursday. Play begins Monday.

Texans’ Smith suspended by NFL NEW YORK (AP) – Houston Texans defensive end Antonio Smith was suspended by the NFL on Wednesday for the season opener and the last two preseason games for hitting Miami guard Richie Incognito with the Dolphins player’s helmet. Smith ripped the helmet off Incognito’s head, then hit Incognito on the shoulder with it in last Saturday night’s preseason game. The two also went at it in last season’s opener, when Smith kicked Incognito, drawing an $11,000 fine. Smith later said Incognito deliberately tried to twist his ankle while holding his legs in the 2012 game. Incognito was not fined for that play. Smith must sit out Houston’s visit to San Diego to begin the season Sept. 9. He also will lose about $400,000 in salary for his seventh rules violation since 2011. The Texans said league rules forbid Smith from speaking with the media while he is suspended, but general manager Rick Smith said the player will appeal the punishment. Also on Wednesday, running back Arian Foster was removed from the physically unable to perform list and practiced with the Texans for the first time since May. Foster strained his right calf in an offseason practice in late May and struggled with a sore back after recovering from that injury. Foster rushed for 1,424 yards and 15 touchdowns last year for his third straight 1,200-yard season.

Paul new president of NBA players union LAS VEGAS (AP) – Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul was elected president of the NBA players’ association Wednesday, replacing Derek Fisher. The vote by NBA player representatives came six months after the union fired Billy Hunter as executive director, a position that remains vacant. Hunter countered with a wrongfultermination lawsuit in May, accusing Fisher of conspiring with NBA officials during the 2011 lockout. Paul was a vice president on the executive committee for the past four years. In meetings at the Venetian Hotel, Roger Mason Jr. was elected first vice president. He replaced Jerry Stackhouse, who resigned from the office and is expected to take a position within the union.

QUICKLY n Director general David Howman of the World AntiDoping Agency says Jamaican officials must respond to allegations that their drug-testing procedures are deficient. Writing this week in Sports Illustrated, the former executive director of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission said Jamaica’s antidoping commission had numerous “troubling” problems during her tenure. Renee Anne Shirley says just one out-ofcompetition test was done between February 2012 and the start of the London Olympics five months later.

Ichiro Suzuki bows to the crowd after connecting for his 4,000th career hit in Japan and the major leagues, a single in the first inning of the New York Yankees’ game against Toronto on Wednesday in New York.

Suzuki gets 4,000th hit, Soriano homers in Yanks’ win Associated Press

NEW YORK – Ichiro Suzuki was overwhelmed by the outpouring of appreciation he received from the Yankees after he got his 4,000th hit between the major leagues and Japan in the first inning. The celebration after Alfonso Soriano’s tiebreaking homer in the eighth was pretty nice, too. Soriano connected off R.A. Dickey with two outs in the eighth inning Wednesday night, lifting New York to a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jays for Toronto’s 12th straight loss at Yankee Stadium. “It’s unbelievable, 4,000 hits,” Soriano said of Suzuki’s milestone. “To get 4,000 hits, you have to be a great hitter.” The 39-year-old Suzuki hit a liner off Dickey (9-12) that bounced just beyond diving third baseman Brett Lawrie for the milestone hit. Pete Rose with 4,256 hits and Ty Cobb with 4,191 are the only two players that have reached the number solely in the major leagues. Suzuki broke a tie with Lou Gehrig when he got his 2,722nd major league hit in his 13th season. The speedy outfielder amassed 1,278 hits in nine seasons with Orix of Japan’s Pacific League. Suzuki’s teammates streamed out of the dugout and surrounded him at first base, Curtis Granderson giving him the first hug. A grinning Suzuki then faced the cheering fans and bowed, tipping his helmet. He bowed several more times, the last one toward the Blue Jays dugout. “When my teammates came out to first base it was very special, and to see the fans. I wasn’t expecting so much joy and happiness from them and that’s what made it very special tonight.” When he went to his position in right field for the second inning, Suzuki tipped his cap to fans who greeted him with a standing ovation. “You never want to be the guy that gives up the milestone,” Dickey said. “That being said, what an incredible achievement. The manner that he’s done it is equally impressive. Just the longevity, the endurance, the durability. Having played with him in Seattle, it was a real treat to play with him and it couldn’t have happened to a more professional hitter.”

ELSEWHERE IN THE AL TIGERS 7, TWINS 1: At Detroit, Torii Hunter hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the seventh inning and scored from second base on a passed ball to help Detroit beat Minnesota. Drew Smyly (5-0) struck out two in a perfect inning in relief of Anibal Sanchez. Jose Veras entered with two outs in the eighth inning and closed the game for his first save with the Tigers. RANGERS 5, ASTROS 4: At Arlington, Texas, Elvis Andrus hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth to give Texas its major league-leading 40th comeback win of the season with a victory over Houston. During a wild eighth inning, Rangers reliever Tanner Scheppers gave up three hits, one walk, hit two batters and threw two wild pitches to surrender the lead. But closer Joe Nathan (4-2) shut down the Astros in the ninth to get the win. Craig Gentry homered and scored three times for Texas.

ORIOLES 4, RAYS 2: At Baltimore, Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 46th home run, Adam Jones also homered, and Baltimore beat Tampa Bay to avoid a three-game sweep. Davis connected against Jeremy Hellickson (10-7) leading off the fifth inningWei-Yin Chen (7-6) gave up two runs and six hits in seven innings. MARINERS 5, ATHLETICS 3: At Oakland, Calif., Brendan Ryan hit a two-run double in the sixth and added an RBI single in the eighth to help Seattle past Oakland. Michael Morse and Brad Miller homered for the Mariners, who overcame an uneven start by Hisashi Iwakuma to beat the A’s for the fourth time in the past five games. INDIANS 3, ANGELS 1: At Anaheim, Calif., Justin Masterson pitched effectively into the seventh inning, Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer and Cleveland completed a three-game sweep of Los Angeles. The Indians, who came in 5 1/2 games behind Detroit in the AL Central and 3 1/2 behind Oakland in the race for the second wild card spot, surpassed last season’s win total with 35 games to spare. Masterson (14-9) allowed a run and five hits over 6 2-3 innings, tied a season high with five walks and struck out seven. WHITE SOX 5, ROYALS 2: At Kansas City, Dayan Viciedo hit his second career grand slam to highlight a five-run inning and Andre Rienzo picked up his first career win as Chicago beat punchless Kansas City. Rienzo (1-0) allowed only a sacrifice fly to Mike Moustakas while cruising through six innings to win for the first time in five starts.

NATIONAL LEAGUE BRAVES 4, METS 1, 10 INNINGS: At New York, Chris Johnson hit a three-run homer in the 10th inning and Atlanta beat the New York Mets after Braves outfielder Jason Heyward sustained a broken jaw when he was hit by a pitch. Atlanta got an RBI single from Freddie Freeman. Craig Kimbrel reached 40 saves for the third straight season. CARDINALS 8, BREWERS 6: At Milwaukee, Carlos Beltran and Allen Craig hit towering home runs in St. Louis’ six-run second inning, and the Cardinals held off Milwaukee. Matt Holliday also homered and Shane Robinson had three hits for the Cardinals, who are one game behind Pittsburgh in the NL Central race. PADRES 2, PIRATES 1: At San Diego, Ian Kennedy pitched seven strong innings, combining with two relievers on a four-hitter, and Yonder Alonso drove in two runs as San Diego avoided a threegame sweep. Kennedy (5-9) won for the second time in four starts since being obtained from Arizona on July 31. PHILLIES 4, ROCKIES 3: At Philadelphia, Michael Young hit the winning single with one out in the ninth inning after Carlos Ruiz tied the game with a double, pushing Philadelphia past Colorado. Wilin Rosario homered for Colorado. Chase Utley went deep for the Phillies. DODGERS 4, MARLINS 1: At Miami, Zack Greinke allowed one run in eight innings to win his fourth start in a row Wednesday, and the Los Angeles Dodgers took advantage of sloppy defense by Miami for the second consecutive night. Greinke (12-3) allowed six hits, walked none and lowered his ERA to 2.91. The Marlins’ lone run came on a firstinning homer by Giancarlo Stanton. REDS 10, DIAMONDBACKS 7: At Cincinnati, Shin-Soo Choo went 4 for 5 with a homer and three RBIs to spark Cincinnati’s offensive outburst in a win over Arizona. The Reds opened a six-game lead over Arizona in the race for the National League’s second wild-card spot. NATIONALS 11, CUBS 6: At Chicago, Jayson Werth and Scott Hairston hit three-run homers to lead Washington past the Chicago Cubs. Werth’s three-run homer in the third inning gave the Nationals a 6-1 lead.

INTERLEAGUE RED SOX 12, GIANTS 1: At San Francisco, Stephen Drew and Will Middlebrooks each hit a home run and Jonny Gomes and Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in two runs apiece as Boston beat San Francisco.

Southwick also has plenty of weapons around him. The receiving corps is rich, starting with surehanded veterans like Matt Miller, who has 128 catches the last two seasons, and Kirby Moore. But there are also deepthreat targets like Aaron Burks and Geraldo Boldwijn to stretch the field, along with shifty slot receiver Shane Williams-Rhodes, a sophomore whose role should expand even more this season. The Broncos are also deep in the backfield. Sophomore Jay Ajayi, a load at 220 pounds, is the presumed starter. Ajayi rushed for 548 yards, four touchdowns and averaged 6.7 yards per carry as a backup last year. But offensive coordinator Robert Prince is also expected to get sophomore Jack Fields more involved this year as well as junior college transfer Derrick Thomas, who rushed for 1,622 yards in two seasons. Five things to know about the Broncos this season, along with a prediction: Defense: The front line features only two starters from last year’s top 10 unit – tackle Ricky Tjong-A-Tjoe and end DeMarcus Lawrence, who led the team with 9.5 sacks last year and was voted first-team

all-conference. Those competing for playing time on the line are either new or saw limited action a season ago. The secondary features two new faces at cornerback. On the road: The Broncos know they will be tested away from Bronco Stadium this season. The season opens Aug. 31 with a rematch against Washington at the Huskies’ remodeled stadium. The Broncos also travel to BYU, Fresno State, predicted to win the MWC’s West Division, and San Diego State, which upset the Broncos 21-19 last year. The kicking game: A thorn in the side for several seasons, coaches believe those days are in the past. Junior Dan Goodale is competing for the job with sophomore Tyler Rausa. It’s too early to declare the starter, but Petersen says it may come down to who has the hot leg. Both were consistently hitting from 40 yards during the Sunday night scrimmage. No huddle: The Broncos ran no-huddle, up-tempo on every possession during the fall scrimmage. The offense is no stranger to no-huddle, but the Broncos used it less last year than previous seasons. Expect more with Southwick’s experience. But Petersen also says it’s good experience for the defense and a schedule loaded with teams that are using it more often. Expectations: This season is no different than past years in Boise, where it’s BCS or bust. It’s been four years since the Broncos played in the Fiesta Bowl, despite making threats to get back each of the last three years. If they can beat the Huskies in the opener and BYU on Nov. 25, talk could resume about Boise State making a case for a spot in the high-profile bowl games. Predicted finish: First place, Mountain Division.

Hilliard played in 12 games for the Jets last season after beginning the year with the Patriots. He missed New York’s first two preseason games this summer with a rib injury, and his roster spot appeared in jeopardy. Tommy Bohanon, the team’s seventh-round pick from Wake Forest, is having a good camp and appears poised to

play. That’s a nice thing to have.” Key to the Grizzlies’ depth at wide receiver is their ability to stay healthy in the preseason. There have been minor injuries that have prevented players from perfect practice attendance, but for the most part the group has been fortunate. One experienced wideout who will not be ready for Appalachian State a week from Saturday is junior Mitch Saylor. Delaney says he’s ahead of schedule coming off surgery but probably won’t be available until at least mid-September. “They took and grafted some ligaments and tendons out of that (calf) part of the (right) leg for the ankle and the foot,” Delaney noted. “The calf is kind of bothering him but it’s still the surgery part of it. He’s getting better every day.” Saylor will be a significant addition with his 6-foot-5 frame. Until he’s ready, the rest of Montana’s wide receivers appear more than capable of picking up the slack. “We’re getting there,”

Henderson said. “There’s just the little nuances now. Like Coach is telling us on certain routes to be off the ball. It’s the little things that make a big difference. “We’re getting more smooth every day. By the time we play Appalachian State we’ll be ready.” QUICK KICKS: Other wide receivers who may make their mark early are senior Kevin Berland, redshirt freshman Ryan Burke and true freshman Marq Rogers ... Joining Warren on the list of pass-catchers making noise in Wednesday morning’s practice were Henderson, who snared a deep pass from Johnson, and Pierson, who made a nice grab across the middle ...

The smoke at Washington-Grizzly Stadium Wednesday was as bad as it’s been this month. Delaney called it “moderate” compared to what he’s seen in six years. He recalled a past occasion when he couldn’t see the “M” from the stadium.

win the job. Hilliard, a native of Kalispell, resigned with the Jets this offseason, agreeing to a one-year deal worth $780,000. He was a sixth-round pick of Miami out of Montana in 2008, and spent his first four seasons with the Dolphins. Hilliard was in training camp with Minnesota last summer, but was among the team’s final cuts. He signed with New England a few days later and played in two games for the Patriots.

percent of his field goal tries (127 of 155), Feely 82.6 percent (299 of 362). “Healthy competition only makes us better,” coach Bruce Arians said of Carpenter’s signing. “We’ve been consistent that whenever there’s the potential to make our

football team better we’re going to explore that opportunity.” Asked about losing the job to Carpenter five years ago, Feely said “There was a lot more to it than my percentages and my performances on the field.” Then he reeled off a list of what he said were his statistics since he joined the Cardinals. “I think I’m third in the

NFL in makes over 47 yards the last four years, fifth in percentage, fifth in percentage under 47 yards,” Feely said. “So I’m happy with how I performed over the last few years of my career and happy with my training camp so far.” Since 2007, Feely has made 8 of 9 field goals of 50 yards or longer. Carpenter is 10 of 20 from 50 or farther.

In Saturday’s 12-7 victory over Dallas, Feely made field goals of 25, 53, 40 and 22 yards but missed one from 30. “The miss was dumb,” he said. “It wasn’t a technical thing. I should have taken a delay of game and not rushed it.” In addition to signing the kicker, the Cardinals released wide receivers Robert Gill and Robby Toma.

of the teams’ three-game set. The O’s scored once in the first inning on a passed ball and again in the second on a Yorman Garcia double. Missoula plated another pair in the fourth in response to two Rockies’ runs, both on Chuck Taylor’s third triple of the season. But from there it was all Grand Junction, which is trying to kick its own nagging skid and improved to 2-7 at home in the second half. The Rockies scored five times in the fifth, an inning highlighted by Ryan McMahon’s home run. The rollicking rally helped chase Osprey starter Anderson Placido (0-1) after he pitched to five batters in the inning without recording an out. The Rockies knocked him for 10 hits and seven runs, though the Missoula lefty did strike out six batters. Grand Junction starter Devin Burke only lasted into the fifth inning as well, striking out eight and allowing four runs. Reliever Scott Firth (2-2) earned the winning decision by tossing 2 1-3 scoreless innings thereafter. Osprey left fielder Justin Williams had another two hits Wednesday. The freshly turned 18-year-old – his birthday was Tuesday – has recorded a hit in all seven games with Missoula since earning the promotion from the Arizona League earlier this month. He’s hit multiple times in six of those seven games and boasts a smallsample batting average of
