US memo justifying drone killings released LARRY NEUMEISTER Associated Press
NEW YORK — The secret U.S. government memo outlining the justification for the use of drones to kill American terror suspects abroad was released by court order Monday, yielding the most detailed, inside look yet at the legal underpinnings of the Obama administration’s program of “targeted killings.” The 41-page memo — whose contents had previously been summarized and released piecemeal — was heavily redacted for national
security reasons, with several entire pages and other passages whited out. But it argues among other things that a targeted killing of a U.S. citizen is permissible under a 2001 law passed by Congress soon after 9/11. That law empowered the president to use force against organizations that planned and committed the attacks. “The release of the memo will allow the public to better assess the lawfulness of the government’s targeted killing policy and the implications of that policy,” said Jameel
Jaffer, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney who argued for release of the memo. “Despite the release of this memo, the public still knows scandalously little about who the government is killing and why.” He said the memo contains the first formal acknowledgment by the government that the CIA is involved in the program. The July 2010 memo was written by a Justice Department official who is now a federal appeals court judge. It was released after a yearlong legal battle by The New York Times and See DRONE, page A-5

Soldotna woman found dead at campground M K
STERLING, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers are investigating the death of a Soldotna woman at a Kenai Peninsula campground. Troopers say the body of 30-year-old Lindsay Woodward was found in a vehicle parked at the Lower Skilak Lake Campground. Troopers say they were called just after 6 a.m. Saturday and asked to check on Woodward. The call prompted a search by officers. Just before noon, a camper at the campground spotted Woodward in a vehicle parked on the side of the road into the campground. An autopsy was ordered. Troopers say no foul play is suspected.

Soldotna man dead in Bristol Bay By DAN BALMER and RASHAH MCCHESNEY Peninsula Clarion
When longtime bartender, chef, fisherman and bookworm Chuck Voss’ skiff overturned in the Ugashik River on Sunday, killing the 36-year-old man and leaving another missing in the Bristol Bay region, the loss rippled through communities from Florida to Soldotna. It was the Oregon native’s first year fishing commercially again — a longtime love — after a few-year hiatus he took
Pursuit ends at Whittier tunnel New Clarion
By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion
A Soldotna man is in jail after he led Alaska State Troopers on a chase on the Seward Highway before coming to an end at the Whittier Tunnel Sunday. Tylor Arndt, 22, was arrested on charges of failing to stop at the direction of a peace officer in the first-degree, making a false report, reckless driving, driving while license revoked, failure to report an accident,
driving in violation of a limited license, and two counts of Assault in the third-degree. He was taken to Anchorage Jail and is being held on $21,000 bond. The chase began after troopers stopped Arndt in a blue Ford Focus near Mile 73 of the Seward Highway for an equipment violation at about 2:20 p.m. The driver provided a false name then fled northbound at a high rate of speed in excess of 110 mph, according to a troopers dispatch.
Arndt turned onto the Portage Highway and continued to the Whittier Tunnel. Troopers contacted the Alaska Department of Transportation to have them close the northbound gate to the tunnel, but Arndt made it through before it closed, trooper spokesperson Tim Despain said. In the process, troopers had to wait for the gate to open again before they continued the pursuit, he said. While inside the mile-long C

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The search for a missing French adventurer was suspended along the eastern coast of Katmai National Park and Preserve after aerial searches didn’t reveal any signs of his whereabouts, authorities said. The search for Francois Guenot was called off late Saturday, a day after park rangers found his kayak containing his identification, food, maps and personal journals, said Katmai National Park Chief Ranger Neal Labrie. The kayak was discovered on a beach along Shelikof Strait about 200 miles southwest of Anchorage. “We’ve picked up nothing more,” Labrie told The Associated Press on Monday. “And the last journal entry he had amongst his goods was dated June 15.” Guenot was last heard from on May 26 near Kamishak Bay. The National Park Service had planes modify flight patterns to search for Guenot. “Had there been anybody or anything to see along those coastal areas, we probably would have seen them,” Labrie said. The U.S. Coast Guard also
conducted aerial searches Saturday and had a boat positioned along the shore. If he decided to abandon the kayak and walk, the search area could be endless, since his possible route wasn’t known, Labrie said. “There’s really no reason why he would have left all his personal belongings, especially his ID behind,” Labrie said. “He seems extremely unpredictable.” When he was 32, Guenot told Yukon News, a newspaper in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada, in January 2012 that he was a ski instructor from Maiche, France, who dreamed of adventure in North America, across the wilds of Canada and Alaska. “I don’t want to stay like a dog on a leash in France,” he told the newspaper. Guenot arrived in Canada in the summer of 2011 to begin his trek across the continent, which included several misadventures, including falling into a river in the winter. He eventually made his way to Fairbanks, where he found a bike at the dump and rode it to Homer. Guenot then went to Seldovia, where he found two

kayaks and made them into one seaworthy vessel. He began showing up in villages along the shore of Lake Iliamna in southwest Alaska last fall. Guenot befriended Kokhanok resident Gary Nielsen and lived on his property in a tent. When it was too cold in the winter to sleep outside, Nielsen said Guenot slept in the steam bath. Guenot, whom Nielsen said became known as “the crazy Frenchman,” ultimately wanted to reach the Kamchatka
Peninsula in Russia. He set off in May, telling Nielsen that he was going to Perryville, which was hundreds of miles away. Nielsen said Guenot had trouble comprehending the great distances involved in traveling Alaska. Another friend, Jim Tilley of Intricate Bay, spent time with Guenot last fall. He said everyone liked Guenot, but there were worries. “He was just aloof to the dangers of Alaska,” Tilley said.
Swollen creek not enough to halt food FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — A little thing like a flooded creek was not enough to keep an Alaska restaurant owner from delivering Thai ribs and fried rice to stranded customers over the weekend. Anuson “Knott” Poolsawat, owner of Knott’s Take Out in North Pole, forded the swollen waters of Clear Creek to reach two customers stuck along the Richardson Highway. Mike Laiti and Brandon Borgens were completing a multi-day drive Saturday night up the Alaska Highway when they called in
their order to the restaurant, which was near closing. As they approached Clear Creek, they learned a sinkhole had developed from heavy rain near the creek. The state Department of Transportation closed the bridge. Laiti called Poolsawat to cancel their order at the restaurant more than 25 miles away in North Pole. “I called him and said, ‘Hey man, I can’t make it,’ and he said, ‘Not a problem, I’ll come cross the waters,’” Laiti said. “He called me and said, ‘Should I bring a boat?’”

SEATTLE — A 70-year-old hiker who died of hypothermia in rugged terrain in Mount Rainier National Park over the weekend was experienced, prepared and knew the mountain well after having written dozens of stories about treks through the area. She did not have other injuries and her death was an accident, the Pierce County medical examiner’s office said Monday. While not certain about the circumstances around her death, those who knew Karen Sykes said they believe her death was something that could happen to anyone no matter how experienced. “The mountains are big. There’s a lot going on. She was extremely experienced but experience has nothing to do with any of it,” said Kim Brown, who has hiked with Sykes. “She was very careful, very
cautious,” Brown said of Sykes, who was prominent in the Northwest hiking community for her trail reviews and photographs and her book on hiking western Washington. “It’s just something that happens out in the mountains. Everybody who goes in the mountains knows this can happen. It doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t go out, you need to be aware of it.” Sykes was reported missing late Wednesday when she failed to meet up with her boyfriend as planned during a day hike in the east side of the mountain. Park officials suspended three-day search efforts on Saturday when they discovered Sykes. Kindra Ramos, with the nonprofit Washington Trails Association, said she won’t guess what happened to Sykes but said hiking comes with some inherent risks. “As they go outdoors, the best thing you could do is to have your 10 essentials, be comfort-

able with your surroundings, and go as far as you’re comfortable,” Ramos said. She recommended proper trip planning and preparation, including reading trip reports and knowing weather conditions. “Karen knew these things and I’m sure did them. She really had her bases covered, and unfortunately accidents happen sometimes,” Ramos said. She added that Sykes would want people to know that there are some risks but “she wouldn’t want to scare people from hiking.” Mary Kay Nelson, executive director of Visit Rainier, an organization that promotes tourism at the mountain, said Sykes was researching a story that she likely would have submitted to the website. She said Sykes had written about more than 100 hikes in the Rainier area, and “was always eager to find new places to go, hidden hikes that weren’t
well-traveled.” Nelson said her disappearance was particularly shocking because she was so experienced. “It tells us that no matter how prepared we are, accidents happens and things can happen. We need to take outdoor recreation seriously. There’s a certain amount of risk every day we get up, whatever we do,” she said. Since 2000, 18 hikers have died in Mount Rainier National Park, including from falls, drowning and heart attacks, according to park statistics. Annette Shirey, 52, who lives in Tucson, Arizona, said her mother had a personal connection to the mountain and wanted to share that love with others. “The mountains were always a place that gave her strength and was always uplifting for her,” she said. “It helped restore her spirit and her strength.”

What Others Say
Students need better example for fiscal responsibility It’s general knowledge that standards
The difference between GOP, Dems
It is a line I have used to open speeches on the lecture circuit for years and it never fails to get a laugh: “I’m happy to be here tonight from Washington, D.C., where the only politicians with convictions are in prison.” That’s only partially true. Democrats have convictions. They know what to do with power when they get it and how to isolate, even punish, any member of their party who dares to take a different position on an issue. Republicans seem to constantly react to the policies of Democrats or slam each other instead of making a case for the superiority of their ideas. It doesn’t help Republicans that they lack the Democrats’ uniformity. President Obama’s approval ratings continue to plummet while polls showing that voters think the country is on the “wrong track” seem to be on the rise. Republicans should focus less on scandals and policy failures and begin promoting a positive, inspirational and motivational message that reminds Americans of who we are, where we came from and what we can be again. Rather than settle for a Democratic nanny state, Republicans should feature in their speeches, political ads and conversations the virtues of liberty and the benefits and personal satisfaction that come from the power within each of us to make decisions that can improve any life far better than government. Telling America’s story might inspire a younger generation to reach back and consider the values that sustained this nation in the face of numerous challenges. Good
for policymaking in Congress have sunk to abysmal lows. The executive branch of government isn’t doing much to set a better example. The most recent case in point was President Barack Obama’s plan for helping college students struggling to repay their debt. Obama used his presumed executive authority to expand an existing program that eases the repayment burden for college student loans. That’s not such a shocking idea — the program Obama expanded was signed into law by President George W. Bush. And students definitely could use some help in repaying loans in an economy that has yet to raise wage levels. What is disconcerting is the sloppy way the administration implemented the change. “We don’t actually know the costs yet,” said Education Secretary Arne Duncan. “We’ll figure that out on the back end.” Is that any way to run the government? The amount of outstanding student loans soared past the trillion-dollar mark several years ago, an amount greater than either credit card debt or auto loan debt. In Nebraska, the average student owes $26,473 at graduation, according to the Project on Student Debt. The default rate for college loans is higher than for credit cards or other types of debt, despite the fact that not even declaring bankruptcy will erase a student loan. Currently, almost 15 percent of college students default on their loans within three years of entering repayment. The Pay as You Earn program expanded by Obama could help an additional 5 million students by requiring them to pay no more than 10 percent of their monthly income to student loans. After 20 years, the remainder of the loan would be forgiven. The program could help a student with $55,000 in debt reduce the payment from $541 a month under a traditional 10-year schedule to $146, assuming an income of $35,000 a year, under the Pay as You Earn plan, according to “The Student Loan Ranger” blog. It’s no secret that salary levels in some fields are so low that it would take half a lifetime or more to repay a college loan. Good advice for any college student taking out a loan is thinking ahead to how they can repay it. That’s the adult, responsible way to make these decisions. Now we just need to get federal officials to take that advice, as the national debt climbs past $17.5 trillion. — Lincoln (Nebraska) Journal Star, WASHINGTON (AP) — Louisiana June 15 Gov. Bobby Jindal on Saturday night ac-
history is worth repeating. Cynics might say it is too late, that government has grown too big and there are far too many dependent on it to turn the country around and embrace liberty and Cal Thomas personal responsibility. What the country needs is the political equivalent of a Rev. Billy Graham to rally the nation. A spiritual revival would be even better, but that’s for a Higher Authority to direct. Americans should never have to “settle,” even in the midst of a failed presidency, as this one is by any objective standard. Americans have always believed we can do things better than other nations and we have proved it in the past. I call it inspiration-motivation-perspiration, rather than the envy-entitlement-greed culture in which we are now immersed. “We can do better,” said John F. Kennedy during the 1960 presidential campaign. Indeed we can. Indeed we must. As I write in my book “What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America,” we didn’t just crawl out of a cave; we don’t have to discover fire or invent the wheel. We have a history of problems that were solved, challenges met and innovation encouraged and rewarded. Why do we continue to conduct political discourse that sounds like stale sitcom dialog and lob the same rehearsed and focus-grouped sound
bites at each other to no effect? Why not try something old that worked? Given their party’s deplorable state of disunion and the country’s fixation on self, a Republican “revivalist” will have to sell his or her platform based on self-interest, featuring men and women who have overcome by making right choices, if we can still define “right” in a country that increasingly considers all choices equal. Republicans should promise that if voters allow them to regain control of all three branches of government, an outside auditor will be named to go through the federal government, recommending to Congress which agencies can be reduced in size or even eliminated. Congress would require itself to accept the auditor’s findings, as with the Defense Base Realignment and Closing Commission, which has been charged with increasing the Defense Department’s efficiency by the realignment and closure of unnecessary U.S. military installations. This will be a challenge for Republicans. We’ll soon know if they can meet it and, more importantly, whether voters will respond to such a message. The time may be right for someone with real convictions and the courage to state them, regardless of what polls say. Meanwhile, God save us from popular opinion and from politicians whose only convictions come in a courtroom. Readers may email Cal Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jindal: Rebellion brewing against Washington
Classic Doonesbury, 1975
By GARRY TRUDEAU
cused President Barack Obama and other Democrats of waging wars against religious liberty and education and said that a rebellion is brewing in the U.S. with people ready for “a hostile takeover” of the nation’s capital. Jindal spoke at the annual conference hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, a group led by longtime Christian activist Ralph Reed. Organizers said more than 1,000 evangelical leaders attended the three-day gathering. Republican officials across the political spectrum concede that evangelical voters continue to play a critical role in GOP politics. “I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States,” Jindal said, “where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren.” The governor said there was a “silent war” on religious liberty being fought in

Around the World Egypt court sentences 3 Al-Jazeera journalists to 7 years each for terrorism CAIRO — An Egyptian court on Monday convicted three Al-Jazeera journalists and sentenced them to seven years in prison on terrorism-related charges after a trial dismissed by rights groups as a politically motivated sham. The verdict brought a landslide of international condemnation and calls for the newly elected president to intervene. The ruling stunned the defendants and their families, many of whom had hoped their loved ones would be released because of international pressure on the case. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who a day earlier had discussed the case in a meeting with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, denounced the verdict as “chilling and draconian.” The unprecedented trial of journalists on terror charges was tied up in the government’s fierce crackdown on Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood since the ouster last year of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi by el-Sissi, then the army chief. Further fueling accusations that the trial was politically motivated is the Egyptian government’s deep enmity with the Gulf nation Qatar, which was a close ally of Morsi and which owns the Al-Jazeera network. Prosecutors had accused the three — Australian Peter Greste, Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy and Egyptian Baher Mohammed — of promoting or belonging to the Brotherhood and of falsifying their coverage of protests by Morsi’s supporters to hurt Egypt’s security and make it appear the country is sliding into civil war. The government has branded the Brotherhood a terrorist organization. The journalists, who were detained in December, say they are being prosecuted simply for doing their job and are pawns in the political rivalry. During the 5-month trial, prosecutors presented no evidence backing the charges, at times citing random video footage found with the defendants that even the judge dismissed as irrelevant. They depicted typical activity like editing as a sign of falsification.
Syria hands over last of declared chemical weapons stockpile NICOSIA, Cyprus — Syria finished handing over to Western powers Monday the 1,300 tons of chemical weapons it acknowledged possessing, completing a deal reached last fall under threat of U.S. airstrikes. The most dangerous material will be transferred to an American ship, which will move into international waters and use specialized equipment to destroy the chemicals over the next two months. Other material will be disposed of at toxic waste sites in various countries. Questions persist over whether Syrian President Bashar Assad is hiding undeclared poison gases or attacking rebels with chlorine — a toxic industrial gas that is not specifically classified as a chemical weapon. But politicians and activists hailed Monday’s milestone as a victory for international diplomacy, and, at the least, a clear reduction in the amount of chemicals available for use in Syria’s bloody civil war.
Racial politics churn GOP Senate primary in Miss. as Cochran seeks black support M K
JACKSON, Miss. — Race is roiling the Republican Senate runoff in Mississippi, a state with a long history of racially divided politics where the GOP is mostly white and the Democratic Party is mostly black. National tea party groups say they are working to “ensure a free and fair election” by sending several dozen observers to precincts to watch who votes during Tuesday’s GOP contest, concerned about six-term Sen. Thad Cochran’s efforts to persuade Mississippi Democrats to cast ballots. Challenger Chris McDaniel and the tea party portray cross-party voting as dangerous and even illegal, though state law allows it. “Thad Cochran and his establishment handlers are out trolling, begging for Democrats to cross over and vote in the Republican runoff,” Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund chairwoman Jenny Beth Martin said in announcing that her group and two others have hired an attorney to watch Tuesday’s primary. While Cochran rarely mentions race, he readily acknowledges he’s seeking support from black and white voters.
Supreme Court rebukes EPA, but leaves intact program to deal with carbon emissions WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court largely left intact Monday the Obama administration’s only existing program to limit power plant and factory emissions of the gases blamed for global warming. But a divided court also rebuked environmental regulators for taking too much authority into their own hands without congressional approval. The justices said in a 5-4 vote along ideological lines that the Environmental Protection Agency cannot apply a permitting provision of the Clean Air Act to new and expanded power plants, refineries and factories solely because they emit greenhouse gases. The decision underscores the limits of using the Clean Air Act to deal with greenhouse gases and the administration’s inability to get climate change legislation through Congress. “The Supreme Court put EPA on a leash but not in a noose,” said Michael Gerrard, director of Columbia University’s Center for Climate Change Law. “It reaffirmed that EPA can regulate greenhouse gases, but it can only go so far in reinterpreting the statute,” Gerrard said.”

report. The other two men, Earnest Pierce, 47, of Nine Mile Falls, WA And Brandon Park, 24, of West Richland, WA were able to climb on top of the overturned skiff until a nearby fishing boat rescued them, according to the troopers report. None of the men were wearing flotation devices, DeVuyst said. The night before he died, Voss called friends in Soldotna to tell them that he missed them, loved them and couldn’t wait to come home. “I’m just so thankful … that I got to talk to him the night before he passed,” Cara Steadman wrote in an email. “He called every night with a count down of how many days he had left.” Voss was part of a tight-knit group of bartenders who had worked at three Soldotna bars, the Maverick Saloon, Alaska Roadhouse Bar and Grill and Good Time Charlies. Several regulars at the three bars described him as a gentle giant. They remembered him as kind, and as a good cook. Andrea Norris, a friend from Cocoa Beach, Florida spends her summers in Alaska and said she has several fond memories of Voss as a bartender at the Maverick. “He always looked out for me, being a girl in a bar, always was nice and polite and protective,” she said. “We actually made our own marriage certificate on a dollar bill, signed our names and hung it up in there.” Norris’ kids, knew Voss as “uncle.” “He was ‘Uncle Chuck to a lot of kids,” she said. “He was a

in an abortive attack against the U.S. and was planning other attacks from his base in Yemen, the memo said. It said the authority to use lethal force abroad may apply in certain circumstances to a U.S. citizen who is part of the forces of an enemy organization. The memo said the Defense Department operation was being carried out against someone who was within the core of individuals against whom Congress had authorized the use of “necessary and appropriate” force. David E. McCraw, vice president and assistant general counsel for the Times, called the memo “a critical addition to the public debate over targeted killings and should fuel a richer discussion of the legal and se-
curity issues that are at the heart of that debate.” The memo was written by David Barron, who at the time was acting chief of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. He was recently confirmed as a judge in the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston. U.S. officials considered alAwlaki to be an inspirational leader of al-Qaida, and they have linked him to the planning and execution of several attacks targeting American and Western interests, including a 2009 attempt on Christmas Day to blow up a Detroit-bound airliner. Pardiss Kebriaei, a senior attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights, said the
memo’s contents showed that the targeted killing program was built on “gross distortions of law.” Kebriaei, who worked with the ACLU on two lawsuits challenging al-Awlaki’s killing, estimated that more than 4,000 people may have been killed by drone strikes since 2009. The lawyer said that although the U.S., England and Israel are the only countries that have used drones to kill, other countries soon will have such aircraft of their own. “The United States loosening and redefining international rules governing the use of force and war is ultimately not going to make anyone any safer,” the lawyer said.
big kid himself.” Steadman, whose sons Trenton Steadman and Ryker Wilson were some of the many who called Voss “Uncle,” said the loss would be felt deeply by her family. “Trenton has been taking it really hard,” Cara Steadman wrote in an email. “(Voss took) Trenton on his first grouse hunt when he was 7 and was given the name ‘Ice Road Chuckers.’” As friends spoke about his life, several common themes emerged — the first that Voss’s deep belly laugh was infectious. “A lot of people called him ‘Chuckles,’” Norris said. “It did not matter how bad your day was going, he would cheer you up doing something silly.” The second, that Voss was an avid fisherman and while he moved from Kasilof, to Sterling, to Soldotna — a river was always nearby. “He took me fishing last summer, it was great day,” said Danielle Shedd, of Soldotna. “We didn’t catch anything, but we still had a blast. It was a lot of fun to feel like that.” Norris recalled a fishing trip to Skilak Lake and a solitude that made the trip exponentially better. “He was such a boisterous guy, there was a softer side of Chuck that maybe not everybody always got to see,” she said. “It was nice to have some of those quieter moments.” Third, that Voss had a softer, intellectual side that didn’t always show through. “He was kind of a bookworm. He’d probably hate that I tell people that but he was really smart. He was always reading some kind of book,” Shedd said. “People that didn’t know him closely, I don’t think realized that the rough exterior that
he had —that kind of roughneck kind of thing — was just a shell.” Several said he would listen to their troubles and do his best to help. Shedd said she had a family trauma not long after she met Voss — she a housekeeper and he a chef at the Alaska Legends Lodge at Funny River. “Chuck was there and he knew something was wrong and … you know I felt comfortable enough with him to let him in and tell him what was happening. He was there for me even when we barely knew each other and I knew, from that time on, that we’d be friends forever.” Alaska Roadhouse owner Brent Elkington said a celebration of life would be held at the roadhouse, but a date decided upon. Elkington said he hired Voss as a bartender and caterer. “He was a great cook. We’d just call him kind of the pig roaster here,” Elkington said. “He was very good with appetizers.” Voss was responsible for roasting a whole pig during an annual event at the roadhouse — a responsibility he took seriously. “Chuck was always there
to help out and do most of it,” Elkington said. “It was usually his way. Once he started something he liked to have it done his way.” Elkington said Voss was a perfectionist about food; he was the chef at Shedd’s wedding. Norris said she wasn’t surprised that so many in the community felt the loss of Voss’ abrupt death. “Working in a bar in a small town, he knew a lot of people and whether or not they had an interaction with him on a personal level outside of the bar or not, everybody knew who he was and just loved and adored him,” she said. “He was always quick to help people. I don’t think he knew how to say no.” Voss was, by all accounts, a warm man. “We made jokes about him being our heater.” Shedd said. “Sometimes if we were all standing outside smoking a cigarette, we would all stand outside and hug him and he would keep us warm… I’m going to miss him.”
said. “(Arndt) ... then took off on foot.” Arndt ran toward the end of the tunnel and hid behind a portable restroom in a pullout area before troopers arrested him, he said. According to Alaska court records, Arndt had an outstanding felony arrests warrant for a probation violation and a previous eluding charge from May 28. He was also driving with a revoked license. Arndt was arraigned in Anchorage District Court on Monday.
Obama encourages family-friendly work policies amid election year focused on women voters WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama said Monday that the United States should join the rest of the industrialized world and offer paid leave for mothers of newborns. “Many women can’t even get a paid day off to give birth — now that’s a pretty low bar,” Obama said at the White House Summit on Working Families. “That, we should be able to take care of.” The president is talking about paid maternity in the midst of a midterm election campaign focused on women voters, raising questions about how he would fund such a system. “If France can figure this out, we can figure this out,” Obama said. While some companies offer paid family leave to attract workers, the 1993 Family Medical Leave Act only requires that employers provide unpaid leave for medical and family reasons. Obama praised California, Rhode Island and New Jersey for creating a state benefit. But he has not endorsed legislation that would create a similar national system funded by a payroll tax, and he pledged in his 2008 presidential campaign not to raise taxes on families making under $250,000 a year. — The Associated Press C

Oilers take ABL opener Staff report
The Peninsula Oilers opened up Alaska Baseball League play Monday with a 5-2 victory over the host Anchorage Bucs. The victory extends the Oilers’ unbeaten string to 10 games and improves the squad’s overall record to 10-1-2, but most importantly it gets the Oilers on the board with a 1-0 record in the ABL. The Bucs are 5-2 in the ABL. The Oilers had five errors on the day, but the defense came through when it mattered. Mylz Jones had a couple of dazzling plays at shortstop, and the Oilers turned three double plays. The biggest double play came in the ninth inning. The Bucs quickly loaded the bases with no outs against closer Jeff Paschke when Tyler Ware reached on an error, Grant Palmer doubled and Mark Sanchez walked. Paschke got Garrett Copeland to fly out to short left field. Cade Reiten then grounded to third baseman AJ Hernandez.
Hernandez threw to catcher Nick Thurman to get the out at home, then Thurman whipped it to Ethan McGill at first to end the threat and the game. The Oilers did most of their damage in the second inning against starter and loser Kyle Davis. Hernandez led the inning off with a single, then McGill walked. Alex Rubanowitz singled to load the bases. Josh Rose knocked in Hernandez with a single, then Thurman hit a sacrifice fly to score McGill. Jones then came through with a two-out double to score Rubanowitz and Rose. Oilers starter and winner Dallas DeVrieze did his part to make sure the early rally would hold up. He pitched six innings and gave up seven hits and two runs, just one earned. He walked two and struck out five. The Oilers got an insurance run in the eight inning when Rubanowitz scored on a passed ball. That would be enough for
the bullpen. Chad Rieser, Nolan Sheridan and Paschke threw scoreless innings, with Paschke picking up the save. Jones and Rubanowitz each led the seven-hit Oilers’ attack with two hits, while Andy Crowley, Mark Krueger and Dylan Butler had two hits for the Bucs’ nine-hit attack. The Oilers face the Bucs at 7 p.m. today, then have a 6 p.m. doubleheader against the Bucs Wednesday before a 7 p.m. tilt against the Bucs on Thursday.

Report details handling of Sandusky case HARRISBURG, Pa. — A report released Monday detailing the handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case faults police and prosecutors for long delays in bringing charges but found no evidence that politics affected the investigation into the former Penn State assistant football coach. The report, commissioned by Attorney General Kathleen Kane and written by former federal prosecutor Geoff Moulton, blamed a three-year lapse in filing charges on communication problems, an expungement of a 1998 complaint about Sandusky and a failure to take certain investigative steps early on. “The facts show an inexcusable lack of urgency in charging and stopping a serial sexual predator,” said Kane, a Democrat who had vowed to conduct a review of the investigation while running for office. “The report documents that more investigative work took place in just one month in 2011 than in all of either 2009 or 2010.” Then-Attorney General Tom Corbett, a Republican, was in the midst of his successful 2010 gubernatorial campaign during the Sandusky investigation. Moulton said his review “revealed no direct evidence that electoral politics influenced any important decision made in the Sandusky investigation.” As a candidate in 2012, Kane said Corbett may have had a political motive to slow down the investigation, an assertion Corbett denied. Sandusky’s arrest led to the firing of longtime Penn State coach Joe Paterno while Corbett was serving as a university trustee. “This investigation was never about politics,” Corbett said in a statement Monday. “It was always about the people victimized by this man.” — Staff and wire reports

Brazil’s Neymar celebrates after scoring his side’s second goal during the Group A World Cup soccer match between Cameroon and Brazil at the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia, Brazil, Monday.
Neymar delivers for hosts RAF CASERT AP Sports Writer
RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazil relied on its star Neymar for two early goals to beat Cameroon 4-1 Monday and reach the World Cup’s knockout stage for a South American showdown against Chile, a 2-0 loser to the Netherlands. Winning Group B with its third straight victory made sure that the Dutch avoided the host so early in the tournament. Instead, the Netherlands will face Mexico, which beat Croatia 3-1 to advance alongside Brazil from Group A. Spain beat Australia 3-0 in an inconsequential game between already eliminated teams, a victory providing a little balm
on the disappointing defense of its title. With free-flowing games and buckets full of goals the rule in this outstanding tournament, it took until the final minutes of the Group A games for Brazil to make sure it advanced as group leader on goal difference over Mexico. “We are progressing match after match and that’s important,” Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said. Both finished with seven points, with Croatia eliminated with three points, while Cameroon finished with three losses. Brazil finished first because it had a better goal differential than Mexico, plus 5 to plus 3. The Netherlands was the first perfect team to advance, finish-
ing ahead of Chile in Group B. Spain had three points with Monday’s win, and Australia had three losses. Beyond the statistics, it again was Neymar who fully lived up to expectations of the 200 million football fans in Brazil with flair and lethal finishing, making the difference with first-half strikes against an African opponent that fought hard for one half before succumbing. Neymar used an array of spin moves and delicate touches to get by players, delighting the crowd in Brasilia — including Britain’s Prince Harry. “I have the responsibility,” said Neymar, and at 22, he is living up to it every single time he takes to the pitch. It seems half the Brazil jerseys from the
beaches of Copacabana to gaucho towns in the interior carry his name, and with good reason. Neymar has four goals from three games to lead the top scorer’s standings, edging a group of five players with three goals. Much like the opener, Neymar carried the weight for his team, scoring the first with a subtle inside-foot flick while adding a second with a darting run before wrong-footing the Cameroon goalie with a rightfoot drive. The oft-criticized Fred may have kept himself in the starting lineup with a header just after halftime. Substitute Fernandinho closed out the scoring for Brazil.
Brown Bears name new assistant By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion
The Kenai River Brown Bears have announced Rory Dynan will fill the final assistant coaching position. Dynan fills an opening created when Steve Murphy left to pursue other opportunities early in the offseason. The 32-year-old Dynan joins head coach Geoff Beauparlant and assistant Scott Johnson on the staff. “He brings a stability to the program and a maturity,” Beauparlant said. “He has good phone demeanor and he knows his hockey. “He’s got a lot of good, new, fresh ideas and we’re excited to implement some into the program.” Dynan was picked from over C
40 applicants. Dynan has junior, college and pro experience. He played three seasons in the America West Hockey League, which has since merged with the North American Hockey League. He also played four seasons in the Division III Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, including three with Gustavus Adolphus College. Finally, Beauparlant said he played some pro hockey in Europe. He has spent the last three seasons coaching high school hockey in Minnesota. “He wants to be a career coach,” Beauparlant said. “That’s an important piece. A lot of guys say they want to be coaches but aren’t willing to sacrifice the financial side or even take a step back in their roles.”
Beauparlant said Dynan, who hasn’t been to Alaska before, has experience in skill development, strength and conditioning, academics, and billeting. “He had all the pieces we were looking for,” Beauparlant said. Bears notes: With main camp set for July 24 to 27 in Minnesota, the Bears are looking at having more roster spots to fill than originally expected. Austin Chavez recently joined Sebastian Fuchs and Kris Oldham as players from last season to advance to the United States Hockey League, the best junior league in the United States. Chavez has made the Sioux City (Iowa) Musketeers. Also, draft pick and former Wasilla player Colton Fletcher has
made the Lincoln (Nebraska) Stars. Zack Zulkanycz and Nathan Colwell are on the training camp roster for the Dubuque (Iowa) Fighting Saints, while Frankie Spellman and Zach Quinn are trying to catch on with the Bloomington (Illinois) Thunder. “It speaks volumes to the work they’ve put in as players,” Beauparlant said. “We want to be good partners in the community, move guys on to the USHL or college, and be competitive. “We’ve achieved all three.” … The Stanley Ford Brown Bear Classic will be July 20 at Kenai Golf Course. Registration is available at the course, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hasek receives Hall nod LARRY LAGE AP Hockey Writer
Dominik Hasek, Mike Modano, Peter Forsberg and Rob Blake started playing hockey in four different countries as kids. They will enter the Hockey Hall of Fame together. “This tells me that our game is growing, our game is growing worldwide,” John Davidson, chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee, said Monday. “When we have a class like this coming into the hall, I think that says a lot about our game and how worldwide it is.” The four players will be inducted Nov. 17 in Toronto along with former referee Bill McCreary and the late Pat Burns, who will be enshrined posthumously as a coach in the builder category. Hasek, who was known as “the Dominator,” won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender six times, tying Bill Durnan’s total and trailing Jacques Plante’s record by one. He won two Hart Trophies as league MVP in 1997 and 1998 with the Buffalo Sabres, becoming the first to win the award from his position since Plante did it in 1962. Hasek also helped the Czech Republic win gold at the 1998 Olympics — the first with NHL players — several years after he almost left the world’s top league. “I was thinking about going back to Europe because I was in the minors, playing for the Indianapolis Ice,” Hasek recalled, referring to the Chicago Blackhawks’ affiliate. “But I got a chance to play in 1992 and it was the best thing that could happen for me because in Buffalo, I got a chance to play.” The Sabres traded him to Detroit nearly a decade later and he helped the Detroit Red Wings hoist the Stanley Cup in 2002. Hasek becomes the seventh player from that team to be elected to the Hall of Fame as a player and it was led by Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman. Hasek was a backup in 2008 when Detroit won another championship. Modano ended his career with his home-state Red Wings after leaving Michigan to play in Canada at the age of 15. He finished with records for American-born players — 561 goals and 1,374 points — and helped the Dallas Stars win the Cup in 1999 against the Hasek-led Sabres.

Murray starts strong HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer
LONDON — It had been, famously, more than 75 years since a British man arrived at Wimbledon as the defending champion. So Andy Murray took a moment — and, really, only a moment — to take in the sights and sounds Monday at Centre Court as nearly 15,000 spectators, including Shaquille O’Neal up in the Royal Box, rose to greet him with a raucous standing ovation. Murray’s parents and grandparents were present. So, of course, was his much-discussed recent choice as coach, Amelie Mauresmo. The other player, 105th-ranked David Goffin of Belgium, was little more than a bystander for all of the proceedings, which wrapped up a little more than two hours after they began with a 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 victory for Murray. “I was pretty nervous and stuff before the match. Then when you’re walking to the court — I have a lot of memories obviously from last year. To come to the court and get that reception, it was very nice,” said Murray, who last year became the first man from Britain since Fred Perry in 1936 to win the nation’s prestigious tennis tournament. That title for Perry was his third in a row at the All England Club, but he did not try for another one in 1937. Murray heeded advice from Mauresmo, the 2006 women’s champion at Wimbledon, who told him to soak in everything while walking out to play because, as he put it, “You never know if you’ll get the chance to do it again.” C

Bored and lonely teen should find hobby to fill her time You say you have friends. If you listen to them talk, you may find that they, too, sometimes feel alone even if they have siblings. Many teenagers have told me this. Because you’re bored when you’re not with your friends or participating in sports, consider finding a hobby that will fill your time when your parents are working, or do some volunteering if Abigail Van Buren they agree. You might also consider adopting a pet from a shelter to keep you company. Of course, pets require feeding, training, affection and exercise, but in return they offer unconditional love and companionship. If it would be all right with your parents, it might be a solution for you.

best intentions. Read between the lines, even if you think you know this person well. Tonight: Act as if the world is your oyster. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You have a lot to consider.At this moment in time, you might be keeping your opinions to yourself. You know what you need to do. The question is whether you will follow through. Be careful about people you meet today and in the next few weeks. Tonight: Opt for a quiet day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Handle a hassle before it becomes a major problem. Someone involved could be very controlling and difficult. It is important to know what you want from this situation. A meeting could resolve the problem. Tonight: A lot of last-minute invitations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You might want to address a problem much differently. You’ll have certain demands that must be met, like having a discussion with a close friend. You are extremely creative, and you’ll come up with an amazing solution. Others still might not like your idea. Tonight: Up late. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH A situation on the personal front could hold you back from achieving a certain goal. Investigate the alternatives involved with this matter and see if a quicker solution can be implemented. You must detach in order to find the right answer. Tonight: Watch a movie. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Your ability to read between the lines will be more important than

you recognize. You might discover that what a friend leaves out could be more important than what he or she says. One-on-one relating allows the quickest progress. Tonight: Speak with a friend directly. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might want to listen to a well-meaning friend. This person is not overcritical, and he or she looks at you with understanding. A discussion about a loved one will be well received, so schedule a time to have a discussion with that loved one. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Sometimes people pull away from you when you become too controlling or difficult. You might wonder what the best way to handle a situation like this is. It wouldn’t be a bad idea for you to take a step back and observe more. Tonight: Put in extra effort with whatever you do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You have a great sense of adventure, and it will come out when dealing with a loved one. Once the fun begins, it could be close to impossible to stop. You might need to let go of a comment that hurt your feelings, as it was not intentional. Tonight: Be both naughty and nice. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH A situation involving your personal life will make you smile. You could be delighting in the whimsical nature of a child or loved one. A friend might seem to need more control than in the recent past. Avoid getting sucked into any power plays. Tonight: Happiest at home.
A surprise addition to a dream trip Dear Heloise: When checking into a hotel on a dream vacation to Hawaii, I was told that there was a $35 daily resort fee (to go along with the $20-a-day valet fee). When I asked what this fee included, I was told it was for the pool and spa, which I had no intention of using. As I am a rewards member of the hotel, the fee was waived for me, but I wonder how many people get stuck paying this fee without ever using the amenities? — Diana T., via email These fees are considered mandatory at the hotels that charge them, whether or not you use the amenities. You were lucky that the fee was waived, but for the most part, they must be paid, which adds a significant cost to the nightly room fee. Make sure to read the fine print or call the resort BEFORE booking so you are not surprised! — Heloise Spacing helper Dear Heloise: The other weekend, my husband and I were laying new flagstone pavers in our yard. I started getting frustrated with the spacing between the pavers, which caused my husband to go to the garage for a break. I then heard him shout “Aha!” and he came out carrying a bag of his old golf tees. He proceeded to use the tees as spacers! — Lorraine W. in New Mexico Envelopes ready Dear Heloise: If you pay bills through the mail and have misplaced the self-addressed return envelope the company sends, try this hint next time: Lightly moisten the adhesive tip of the envelope flap and fold it over the bill, sticking it to the back. When you are ready to pay the bill, the envelope can be quickly found, and it saves you the cost of another envelope, time to address it and sometimes a stamp. — Chris S. in Florida

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, June 24, 2014: This year you keep many of your thoughts and ideas to yourself. Sometimes testing them out on a dear friend draws positive results, so keep that in mind. If you are single, be careful and get to know each potential sweetie well; you might be attracting emotionally unavailable people.

DEAR ABBY: My 19-year-old sister died two years ago from an overdose. I’m 13. We were very close when we were little, but during the four years before she passed away, my parents didn’t want us around each other for fear of her rubbing off on me, and she wasn’t home half the time anyway. A year earlier she went to rehab, and I remember talking with her about how she was clean for good and then ... It’s just so lonely! All my friends have sisters and brothers and I don’t, and I’m bored all the time. My parents work a lot, so I’m home alone at least three times a week, and although I’ve got friends and sports, I’m just really alone. It’s awkward going out to dinner or going on vacation because my parents just want to sit and relax, and I want to go out and do things, but it’s embarrassing going everywhere with your parents. I miss having her around. — ALONE IN OHIO DEAR ALONE: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your sister. You are still grieving, which is why you say you feel alone. However, if you think about it, because of her addiction, she has been out of your life for longer than two years. It may be that what you’re really mourning is the relationship you MIGHT have had.

TBILISI, Georgia — Animals in the zoo in Georgia’s capital are not allowed to be lonely, even if it means they end up with rather unusual companions. A female rhinoceros called Manuela has made friends with donkeys, after failing to hit it off with either zebras or goats, while a lion cub neglected by his mother has bonded with a puppy.
Tbilisi Zoo spokeswoman Mzia Sharashidze said Manuela got depressed after the death of her mate and became aggressive toward her caretakers. They tried putting zebras in her enclosure, but they only returned the aggression. Then they tried goats, which ran away. But the donkeys had an instant calming effect. Nearby, lion cub Shamba lives happily with a puppy. Sharashidze said they “are watching how long the friendship will last.”
Goodbye, old friend
Betty Dean of Sterling shared this photo of Patches, a 10- to 12-year-old dog the Deans adopted from Alaska’s Extended Life Animal Sanctuary in Nikiski. Betty writes, “She was in ill health but we had unconditional love. She never complained. Vet-wise, we did all that we could, but a couple of weeks ago her back legs and internal organs gave out. We had to call the traveling vet. Now the cat, who wasn’t allowed to sleep with her, sleeps with her ashes. ... Older pets need love too. You will get love in return.”
