Stay calm: T-shirts net $2,500 Funds to benefit emergency services charities By RASHAH McCHESNEY Peninsula Clarion

Brad Nelson knows social media and as the Funny River Horse Trail wildfire spread, his name became synonymous with frequent, rapid updates spreading on Facebook. During the two-week period when the fire was most active near communities on the central Kenai Peninsula, the Borough Health and Safety Officer’s reputation became the impetus for a series of T-shirts emblazoned with the phrase “Keep Calm and Wait for an Update from Brad Nelson.” Proceeds from the sale of those T-shirts were presented on Monday to

‘I was surprised by the first-day volume. That first day, the phone would not stop ringing. We have two lines and people were still leaving messages.’ — Daniell Stynsberg Central Emergency Services. The Kenai-based commercial radio station, KSRM, designed the shirt, which was sold for charity through GAMAS Designs in Soldotna. The limited run of the T-shirt is over and former GAMAS manager Daniell Stynsberg presented Brad Nelson and Dan

Deaths mar holiday

In the news Woman mauled by brown bear





ANCHORAGE (AP) — A jogger who came upon two bear cubs on a trail south of Anchorage said she was attacked by the mother bear Monday. Alaska State Troopers say Susanne Knudsen, 59, of Indian was taken to an Anchorage hospital for treatment of injuries that were not considered life threatening. Knudsen told troopers she was jogging on a trail in Chugach State Park when two brown bear cubs came out of the brush in front of her. She said she was hit from behind by the sow. She used her cellphone to call for help Monday morning and a group of all-terrain vehicle riders happened upon her soon after. Troopers said a group of riders, in the parking lot when the trooper arrived, lent the responding trooper an ATV and the riders helped bring Knudsen down the trail. Jessy Coltrane, Anchorage area wildlife biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, said vegetation along the trail is about 5 feet tall, and it appeared Knudsen had surprised the bears. She said there are typically a lot of bears in that area, where two years ago, there was also a mauling on the trail. Coltrane said troopers were wrong in identifying the trail as the Penguin Ridge Trail. She said Monday’s attack occurred on Bird Creek Trail.

Building for the future

Construction begins on new Habitat for Humanity home By KELLY SULLIVAN Peninsula Clarion

Sawdust sprayed into the 66-degree air around Bill Radtke and Nathon Stonecipher as they sliced into a thick strip of wood. After the whirring table saw blade was turned off, the two men paused in their work for a water break. In a pair of dark reflective sunglasses, Stonecipher sipped from a water bottle on the property of his soon-to-be home. Behind him a rectangular cement foundation jutted up from the ground. On Saturday, framing work began on this year’s Central Peninsula Habitat for Humanity home on Second Avenue in

‘It would not have been possible for us for a long time if this hadn’t happened.’ — Crystal Stonecipher

Stonecipher will move into the home with his wife, Crystal Stonecipher, and her three children, Rebecca Trickel, Charles Trickel and Destin Trickel. “I love everything about it,” Stonecipher said. “Pouring the concrete has been my favorite part of construction so far. It finalizes that it’s actually happening.”

New family, new home The Stoneciphers married last January Kenai. By Thanksgiving the foundation after dating for five months. The couple Stonecipher was overlooking will evolve decided early on in their relationship they into a three-bedroom house, said Bill wanted to start saving up for a house. The couple was selected to receive this Radtke, board member for the Central Peninsula Habitat for Humanity. See HOME, page A-8

Two separate accidental deaths on the Kenai Peninsula put a damper on the Fourth of July weekend. A Wasilla woman died in an all-terrain vehicle accident Friday in Anchor Point. On Saturday, a Houston man was found dead at the bottom of a 100foot cliff in Seward after Alaska State Troopers attempted to contact him earlier in the evening for failure to yield while on a mini four-wheeler. Shelby Caven, 23, was driving the ATV with a passenger, 22-year-old Jaclyne Schachle of Wasilla, along Whiskey Gulch beach Friday at about 6:20 p.m. when the accident was reported to troopers. Caven, who was camping nearby, attempted to cross the mouth of Stariski Creek when she struck the south side of the creek bottom, which caused the ATV to flip forward and tip over. The impact caused Caven to hit the handlebars with her chest, while Schachle was sitting behind her, trooper spokesperson Megan Peters said. Caven initially stood up following the crash but then collapsed into the water. Schachle suffered minor injuries from the accident. Fellow ATV riders See MAR, page A-8

Senate Democrats: Obamacare? What’s that? By CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan has her Republican opponent right where she wants him geographically — and, therefore, politically. Thom Tillis is stuck at the state capitol trying to resolve a budget quarrel as speaker of the North Carolina House. It’s

a spot that helps Hagan emphasize Tillis’ role leading a Republican-controlled state government that Democrats contend has gone overboard with conservative zeal by restricting access to abortion and the voting booth while cutting corporate taxes and slashing spending on schools. If Tillis is worried by Hagan’s portrayal, he doesn’t show it. Drinking coffee this past week

from a hand-grenade-shaped mug in his no-frills legislative office, he’s got his own message in his campaign to take Hagan’s Senate seat. “Obamacare,” he said, “continues to be a big problem.” Similar themes are playing out in other crucial Senate races, as voters have four months to decide which party will control the chamber in the final two years of Barack Obama’s presiC




dency. For Republicans, it’s all about tying Democrats to Obama — especially to a health care law that remains unpopular with many Americans. And for Democrats, the election is about just about anything else, especially if they can steer attention away from Washington and federal matters. It’s a political strategy that sometimes gives the campaigns an inside-out feel, with veteran

senators running as if they were first-timers without a Washington resume to defend or tout. Democrat Mark Pryor has represented Arkansas in the Senate for two terms, yet one of his TV ads begins with a man saying, “I remember when Pryor was attorney general.” A woman adds that he pursued “scam artists that were ripping off seniors.” See VOTE, page A-8

NEW YORK — Wouldn’t you love to escape this busy world and just spend some time alone with your thoughts? Maybe not, says a study of volunteers who actually tried it. Some even started giving themselves electric shocks as the minutes ticked by. “I think many of them were trying to shock themselves out of boredom,” said psychologist Timothy Wilson of the University of Virginia. “It’s just a sign of how difficult (being alone with one’s thoughts) can be for people.... This isn’t something that most people find really enjoyable.” At least, that’s the case for people not trained in techniques

like meditation, Wilson and coauthors say in a paper released Thursday by the journal Science. In a series of experiments, college students left their cellphones and other distractions behind and spent six to 15 minutes alone in a sparsely furnished room on campus. They were told to entertain themselves just with their thoughts, or imagine doing one of three pleasant activities like hiking. The experience was not exactly heaven. On a 9-point scale of enjoyment, their average rating was about in the middle. And about half the participants gave it a rating at the half-way mark or below. In nonscientific terms, the overall verdict was: Eh.

Doing it at home proved no more enjoyable. When the researchers had 61 people from the community try it at home, about half admitted to cheating by doing things like checking their cell phones, writing or doodling. Their overall results were about the same as with the students. The most startling experiment involved the electric shock. Students first shocked themselves in the ankle and rated how unpleasant that was. They were asked to imagine being given $5 and to specify how much they would pay to avoid another shock, or to receive one. Then they were told that if they wanted to, they could shock themselves again during their time alone, which ran 15 minutes. Of the 55 participants, 42 said they would pay to avoid feeling the shock again. But once they were left alone, even some of these volunteers chose to shock themselves anyway; 12 of 18 men and six of 24 women. Wilson was surprised by the overall results. When the experimenters began the study, “it seemed that it shouldn’t be that hard for people to use (their brains) to entertain themselves,” he said. “All of us have pleasant memories we can call upon, we can construct stories and fantasies.”

Maybe the problem is that while pleasant thoughts pop up naturally while we’re doing something like driving or exercising, it’s hard to activate them on demand, he said. “I think it’s an issue of mental control. The mind is built to engage in the world and when you give it nothing to engage it, it’s hard to keep one train of thought going for very long.” In any case, the result is probably not a consequence of modern-day life, Wilson said, because even in medieval and ancient Roman times, there were complaints that people don’t take enough time to contemplate. Jonathan Schooler, a psychologist at of the University of California, Santa Barbara, who didn’t participate in the work, said he found the results “surprising and in some ways a disappointing statement about human nature.” Most people have interesting things to think about “so I don’t understand why they find themselves such bad company,” Schooler said. “This is innovative new research, which means it’s the beginning of our understanding of this phenomenon, and not the end,” Schooler said.

Sportsman Channel renews Palin’s ‘Amazing America’ NEW YORK (AP) — Sarah Palin is getting another term on television. The Sportsman Channel said Monday that Palin’s series, “Amazing America,” is being renewed for a second season that will start early next year. On the series, the former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska ex-governor profiles outdoor enthusiasts and craftsmen. The show aired Thursday nights and finished its first season May 29. The small network could not say exactly how many people watched Palin. But the Sportsman Channel is now available in more homes than when “Amazing America” started and network executives said they believe the high-profile show helped persuade more carriers to offer it. The channel is available in some 36 million homes, or nearly a third of the nation’s homes with television.

Police: Man suspected in racial incident at parade JUNEAU (AP) — A man arrested on suspicion of threatening and yelling racial slurs at a woman is also a suspect in a racial incident that occurred during the Alaska Native gathering known as Celebration, Juneau police said. Alexander Logan Libbrecht, 32, was being held on $25,000 bail on charges of fourth-degree assault after the arrest last week, police Lt. Kris Sell said. Libbrecht used racial slurs while telling the black woman that he was going to bash in her head while he was in a rage, Sell said. Sell said the behavior is similar to an incident that marred a parade at last month’s Celebration event. Police said a man yelled slurs at a Native man and at the crowd and shoved people as he ran off. Libbrecht was considered a suspect but had not been charged in that case, Sell said. Court records did not list an attorney for Libbrecht, who is also wanted in Hawaii after people were threatened, KTOO reported. Last month, the Secret Service asked Juneau police for help in contacting Libbrecht regarding threats against the president and in voicemails to an attorney in New Jersey, who represented Libbrecht in a prior case, Sell said. Police have no indication that Libbrecht has ever gotten close to President Barack Obama, she said. The charges in Hawaii stem from an incident in which someone threw rocks at people on a beach. Court records show Libbrecht was released on bail following the arrest last October, and the prosecutor obtained a protective order against him.

What Others Say

Is Baghdad the next Saigon? If Baghdad is indeed becoming Saigon

— a city overrun by opposition and violence after the departure of the U.S. military — Peter Arnett would know. He intimately knows both places. Working for The Associated Press, Arnett won the Pulitzer Prize in 1966 for his reporting from Vietnam. In spring 1975, Arnett witnessed the calamity that ensued when U.S. personnel abandoned Saigon just as North Vietnamese forces were overtaking the city. In the 1990s, Arnett became a household name to a new generation of Americans following his blow-by-blow coverage of the first Gulf War on CNN. Arnett, now retired as a foreign correspondent, wrote in Monday’s Washington Post that a Saigonlike future “may be the fate that awaits Baghdad if the march of ISIS continues. The Sunni insurgency has already captured much of Iraq’s north (much as the Vietcong had) and is steadily pushing southward. If it reaches the city, what I saw unfold in Saigon nearly 40 years ago is probably a good proxy for what to expect.” The picture Arnett paints is one dripping in pessimism, and understandably so. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, is a jihadist militant group that’s systematically taking control of wide swaths of those nations. Bloodshed is ubiquitous, the death toll rising. President Obama has sent military advisers and a few hundred troops to Baghdad to protect U.S. interests, including the embassy and its personnel. Whatever unsteady peace brought through America’s years-long involvement in that Middle Eastern nation is rapidly dissolving. Arnett admits that “crucial differences separate Vietnam and Iraq,” most notably the existence of three groups — the Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds — who, as Arnett so bluntly puts it, “no longer wish to live within the antiquated borders devised by European diplomats 100 years ago.” Vietnam doesn’t suffer from that internal struggle of religion and violence. A smattering of U.S. troops can’t glue together what’s coming apart in Baghdad. Arnett’s prediction of Iraq’s future may be more proof of the Iraq War’s undeniable folly. — Anniston (Alabama) Star, June 30

Classic Doonesbury, 1976 








Constitution ‘central to our way of life’

The cab driver taking me to the Washington Nationals baseball game on July 4 is from Bangladesh. I ask him how he got here. He said his father “won the immigration lottery” some years back, was admitted under U.S. immigration law and eventually became a citizen, as did his son. He is proud to be an American and said after he dropped me off he was going to a traditional Fourth of July party to celebrate America’s independence. Those are the kinds of immigrants America should welcome. My driver — I will call him “Yusef” (not his real name) says he works hard, supports his family and is outraged by those who break the law to cross the border and immediately begin getting free stuff that he, now a taxpayer, must subsidize. At a July 4 White House naturalization ceremony for more than two dozen foreign-born service members, President Obama said welcoming people to America is “central to our way of life.” No, what is central to our way of life is the Constitution, which protects our freedoms. Historically, we have conditionally granted under the law a safe haven for those “yearning to breathe free.” There is no constitutional right for anyone to come to America, or become a citizen. The Department of Homeland Security website publishes a list of restrictions and prohibitions on aliens wishing to en-

Letters to the Editor Reader not happy with current legislature I am a life-long Alaskan resident, veteran and registered voter. During the last two sessions of the legislature, I have to say that I am not pleased by some of the bills that were passed, but I don’t have the space to list them all. The one I disliked most is SB 21! The state is going to give bigger tax breaks to the Big Three, but I don’t see the good in it for Alaskans who own the oil. What did the oil companies have to promise for these huge tax cuts? Nothing; absolutely nothing! The state gets less revenue so the oil companies can get richer with no strings attached. That’s wrong. And to add insult to injury, Senator Micciche, an employee of ConocoPhillips, voted in favor of SB 21, which will benefit his employer greatly; however, the Senator does not believe his vote presented a conflict of interest! What a crock! Fortunately, we have a chance to undo this bad bill by voting YES on Prop 1 on August 19. A few other bad bills that ultimately failed include HB 77, which would have given too much power to DNR to make decisions on land and water use permits and severely limit public comment. It was nothing more than a power grab, and we said no, loudly, so the bill died in committee … for now. The attempt to change the Alaska Constitution to use public funds for private or religious schools didn’t go to the Senate floor for a vote, and rightly so. Public funds are for public education; end of story. I don’t like where the majority in the legislature is trying to take our state so I am going to vote for Eric Treider for Senator. Over the last several months, I have gotten to know Eric, who is running against Peter Micciche, and I believe he is a decent and honest guy. Eric works in the oil service industry, but he will quit his job and work only for his constituents if he is C




ter the United States. Among those barred are people with “a communicable disease of public health significance.” From various media reports it appears some of those flooding our southern border have, Cal Thomas or are suspected of having, such diseases. Among those who are to be denied entry are children who have not been vaccinated for certain types of diseases, including mumps, measles, rubella, polio, tetanus and diphtheria toxoids, pertussis, influenza type B and hepatitis B, and any other vaccinations for preventable diseases recommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices. Does anyone believe the unaccompanied minors pouring over the border — 52,000 so far and 240,000 other migrants since April, according to The New York Times — have brought with them proof of vaccinations? Who will follow up to make sure each alien child is vaccinated, much less “sponsored”? Probably no one, because no one will ensure they will ever show up in court, as required for their cases to be properly adjudicated. Disease is only one of many categories

that make an alien ineligible for admittance to the U.S. The others are available on the DHS website (http://www.uscis. gov/iframe/ilink/docview/slb/html/slb/ act.html). The clauses I mentioned are under ACT 212. After reading them, you might wonder why they are not enforced by the president, who took an oath to uphold them? The one promise President Obama is keeping is to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” He is transforming the country by flooding it with illegal immigrants that will result in creation of a new permanent underclass beholden to government and thus the party of government, the Democrats. Numerous opinion polls show the public disapproves of this transformation and a majority no longer favors this president. The easiest solution to “immigration reform” is to first secure the border and then deal with the illegal aliens already here. Polls show the public favors this approach by large majorities. Meanwhile the president makes speeches and seeks to add to his party’s political base, rather than solve the problem. My cab driver, not the president, is modeling an approach to immigration most Americans support. Readers may email Cal Thomas at

Nation & World Around the World Pope begs forgiveness of sex abuse victims, vows bishops will be held accountable VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis begged forgiveness Monday in his first meeting with Catholics sexually abused by members of the clergy and went further than any of his predecessors by vowing to hold bishops accountable for their handling of pedophile priests. Abuse victims and their advocates have long demanded that higher-ups be made to answer for the decades-long cover-ups of rape and molestation of youngsters in a scandal that has rocked the church and dismayed its worldwide flock of 1.2 billion. The pope celebrated a private Mass with six victims — two each from Ireland, Britain and Germany — at his Vatican residence, and spent the rest of the morning listening to their accounts, one on one. “Before God and his people, I express my sorrow for the sins and grave crimes of clerical sexual abuse committed against you. And I humbly ask forgiveness,” Francis said. “I beg your forgiveness, too, for the sins of omission on the part of church leaders who did not respond adequately to reports of abuse made by family members, as well as by abuse victims themselves,” the pope said. “This led to even greater suffering on the part of those who were abused, and it endangered other minors who were at risk.”

3 Ukraine bridges blown up to block key roads into rebel-held city of Donetsk





DONETSK, Ukraine — After Ukrainian forces’ seizure of a key rebel stronghold in the east, the major cities of Donetsk and Luhansk could be the next focus of major fighting. Three bridges on roads leading to Donetsk were blown up Monday — possibly to hinder military movements, though the rebels claim it was the work of pro-Kiev saboteurs. As nerves fray over the prospect of fighting in the sprawling cities, Russia urges Europe to put pressure on the government to end the fighting, but takes no overt action. Rebels in Ukraine and nationalists at home have called for the Kremlin to send in troops to protect the pro-Russia insurgents, but President Vladimir Putin, wary of more sanctions being imposed by the West, has resisted. Separatist fighters driven out of the city of Slovyansk and other eastern towns by the Ukrainian army over the weekend are regrouping in Donetsk, a major industrial city of 1 million where pro-Russia rebels have declared independence as the Donetsk People’s Republic. Pavel Gubarev, the region’s self-described governor, had promised “real partisan war around the whole perimeter of Donetsk” before thousands of supporters at a rally Sunday. Ukrainian authorities meanwhile say their strategy is to blockade Donetsk and the rebel-held city of Luhansk, the two largest cities in the separatist east, in order to cut off rebel supply lines. Civilians would be allowed to leave and seek aid elsewhere, national security council spokesman Andrei Lysenko said Monday, according to the ITAR-Tass news agency. Battles between Ukrainian forces and the separatists have left over 400 people dead and thousands homeless since the uprising began in April. Ukraine’s government ended a shaky, unilateral 10-day cease-fire last week, and has since stepped up its fight against the rebels.

Washington state issues first recreational marijuana shop licenses to 24 stores SEATTLE — Washington state issued its first retail marijuana licenses Monday with a middle-of-the-night email alerting bleary-eyed pot-shop proprietors that they’ll finally be able to open for business. “We’re pretty stoked,” said John Evich, an investor in Bellingham’s Top Shelf Cannabis, in a 2:30 a.m. Pacific time interview with The Associated Press. “We haven’t had any sleep in a long time, but we’re excited for the next step.” Randy Simmons, the state Liquor Control Board’s project manager for legal marijuana, said Sunday night that the first two dozen stores were being notified so early to give them an extra few hours to get cannabis on their shelves before they are allowed to open their doors at 8 a.m. Tuesday. The store openings are expected to be accompanied by high prices, shortages and celebration. The state licensed 14 stores in western Washington and 10 in eastern Washington. Spokane has three stores. Vancouver, Tacoma and Bellingham each have two. Seattle and the other cities on the list have one each.

GM engineer: Effort to fix ignition switches touched off GM recall problems DETROIT — General Motors’ deadly ignition switch flaws emerged from an effort to improve its cars. As the company began developing new small cars in the late 1990s, it listened to customers who complained about “cheap-feeling” switches that required too much effort to turn. GM set about making switches that would work more smoothly and give drivers the impression that they were better designed, a GM switch engineer testified in a lawsuit deposition in the spring of 2013. The switches, though, were too loose, touching off events that led to at least 13 deaths, more than 50 crashes and a raft of legal trouble for the Detroit automaker. Former U.S. Attorney Anton Valukas, hired by GM in March to investigate the switch problems, told a congressional subcommittee last month that GM wanted each small-car ignition to “feel like it was a European sports car or something.” After years of lagging behind the Japanese, GM was eager to make better, more competitive small cars. But as it turned out, the new switches in models such as the Chevrolet Cobalt and Saturn Ion can unexpectedly slip from “run” to “accessory,” causing engines to stall. That shuts off the power steering, making cars harder to control, and disables air bags in crashes.

Immigration surge sends families into land bristling with cameras, guns and guard towers

MISSION, Texas — The influx of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has grown so large that it now requires its own transportation system: government buses that spend each night idling on a Texas roadside, awaiting the latest arrivals. The buses, joined by a fleet of Border Patrol vans, illustrate the immense and grindingly routine task facing Border Patrol agents in the 5-mile slice of deep South Texas that has become the epicenter of the recent surge in illegal immigration. An Associated Press reporter recently spent several days in this arid terrain, revealing a daily tide of migration that sends impoverished families into a harsh landscape bristling with cameras, lookout towers and heavily armed patrols.

JERUSALEM — Militants in the Gaza Strip unleashed dozens of rockets on southern Israel late Monday, setting off air raid sirens and forcing hundreds of thousands of Israelis to stay indoors as the military rushed more forces to the border and warned that even heavier fighting looked likely. The latest violence came as Israel pressed forward with its investigation of six Jewish youths suspected of abducting and killing a Palestinian teenager, and Israeli leaders sought to calm an emotional debate over whether the country’s politically charged atmosphere led to the gruesome crime. An Israeli official said three of the youths had confessed to the attack. Tensions have been high since three Israeli teenagers kidnapped June 12 in the West Bank were later found dead, followed by last week’s slaying of the Palestinian youth in what many suspect was a revenge attack. Throughout the unrest, Gaza militants have launched more than 200 rockets and mortars into Israel, including close to 100 on Monday alone. Israel has responded with dozens of airstrikes, but has not been able to halt the attacks. Eight Palestinian militants were killed in fighting Monday, the highest death toll yet. Dozens of rockets were fired Monday, including 40 launched in a single hour after nightfall, setting off air raid sirens up to 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Gaza, the military said. Twelve rockets were intercepted by rocket-defense batteries, it added, while the others landed in open areas. It was the deepest penetration of rocket strikes in the current round of fighting and raised the likelihood of an even tougher Israeli response. Maj. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, a senior military official, gave a special interview in Arabic to

Israel military bulldozers are lined up near the Israeli and Gaza border Monday. The Islamic militant group Hamas that rules Gaza vowed revenge on Israel for the death of several of its members killed in an airstrike early Monday morning.

Al-Jazeera, warning that Hamas would bear the consequences for the escalation. Among the dead were six Hamas militants who Israel said were killed in an accidental blast in a tunnel packed with explosives. Hamas, the Islamic militant group that controls Gaza, vowed revenge, saying “the enemy will pay a tremendous price.” Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israel Defense Forces spokesman, said the army was moving two infantry forces to the Gaza border and had received authorization to mobilize up to 1,500 reservists. The deaths of the Hamas militants had made a “substantial influence” on the situation, he said. “There is a potential of deterioration due to their death. Therefore the IDF has to continue to reinforce capabilities in the south, with the potential that things could escalate further,” he said. Israeli security officials said Israel was leaning against a massive operation and would likely increase the pressure gradually with stronger and more numerous retaliatory attacks. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss internal military deliberations with reporters. Israeli Cabinet ministers voted in favor of more intense airstrikes, Channel 2 TV said. In Washington, State Department spokeswoman Jen

Most kids at border won’t stay in US By CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The White House said Monday that most unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border are unlikely to qualify for humanitarian relief that would prevent them from being sent back to their home countries. The pointed warning came as the White House finalized a spending request to Congress detailing the additional resources President Barack Obama wants in order to hire more immigration judges and open additional detention facilities to deal with the border crisis. White House officials said they planned to send the more than $2 billion request to lawmakers on Tuesday. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said that while the administration will allow the immigration review process to take place, officials so far don’t expect many of the children arriving at the border to be able to stay in the U.S. “It’s unlikely that most of these kids will qualify for humanitarian relief,” Earnest said. “It means they will not have a legal basis for remaining in this country and will be returned.” Still, it’s unclear how quickly that process will unfold. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson acknowledged Sunday that such proceedings might be long delayed, and he said that coping with floods of unaccompanied minors crossing the border is a legal and humanitarian dilemma for the United States. “Our border is not open to illegal migration, and we are taking a number of steps to address it, including turning people around faster,” Johnson told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” At the same time, he said, the administration is “looking at ways to create additional options for dealing with the children in particular, consistent with our laws and our values.”

Repeatedly pressed to say whether thousands of Central American children will be deported promptly, Johnson said, “We need to find more efficient, effective ways to turn this tide around generally, and we’ve already begun to do that.” Most are from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, where spikes in violence and poverty are prompting parents to send their children on difficult and dangerous journeys north. Their numbers have overwhelmed federal agencies. When 140 would-be immigrants — mostly mothers with children — were flown to southern California to ease an overcrowded Texas facility, angry residents of Murrieta, California, greeted the bus as it pulled into town, complaining that they were being saddled with more than their share. “This is a failure of diplomacy. It is a failure of leadership from the administration,” said Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who sought the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. Rep. Henry Cuellar, DTexas, said the administration “is one step behind” a major dilemma that was foreseeable. The number of children coming from Central America without adults has been rising dramatically for several years. A George W. Bush-era law to address human trafficking prevents the government from returning these children to their home countries without taking them into custody and eventually through a deportation hearing. Minors from Mexico and Canada, by contrast, can be sent back across the border more easily. The administration says it wants more flexibility under the law. Johnson said the administration has dramatically sped up the processing of adults who enter the country illegally, and it is opening more detention facilities. C




Psaki said the U.S. condemns the rocket fire. “We also support Israel’s right to defend itself against these attacks,” she said. During the day, lines of Israeli tanks and buses were gathered near the border area as soldiers milled about. Late Monday, with roads in southern Israel all but empty, a flatbed truck carrying an armored vehicle made its way toward the border area. Israel has launched two broad military operations in Gaza in the past five years, most recently in 2012, when eight days of heavy fighting ended in an Egyptian-mediated truce. The increased rocket fire followed the killing of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, a 16-year-old Palestinian boy from east Jerusalem who was abducted and burned to death last week. Israeli officials Sunday announced the arrests of six Jewish youths in the killings — ruling out earlier theories that criminal activity or personal reasons might have been a factor. They said the suspects, including some minors, were from the Jerusalem area. Abu Khdeir’s death triggered several days of violent protests in Arab areas of Jerusalem and northern Israel as Palestinians accused Israeli extremists of killing the boy to avenge the earlier deaths of the Israeli teens. Israel’s Shin Bet agency,

which handles top security cases, imposed a gag order, blocking key details, including the identities and backgrounds of the youths, as well as most of the evidence from being made public. An Israeli official said three of the youths had confessed to the crime and even re-enacted it for authorities. The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to the gag order. The official said the suspects included two brothers, and that one of the suspects is the son of a rabbi. Three minor suspects were allowed to meet with lawyers Monday, while the primary suspects were not. Naftali Werzberger, a lawyer for one of the suspects, said he didn’t even know what his client looked like, adding that the young man was prohibited from receiving details that he is being represented by a lawyer. “The families are in shock,” Werzberger added. “No one among the suspects has a violent past or tendency and they can’t explain how we got to this point where their children were arrested as suspects for acts that are very, very serious.” Despite the gag order, some additional details have begun to emerge. Israel’s Channel 10 TV said the suspects were the son and five grandsons of a prominent rabbi in Jerusalem, without further identifying him. It said two suspects used the rabbi’s car for the kidnapping without his knowledge. It added that a Jerusalem district court presented its suspicions Monday against the suspects, including “belonging to a terror organization.” It did not elaborate, and Israeli officials did not confirm the details in the report. The news that the suspects were Jewish set off nationwide soul-searching over how Israelis could possibly carry out such a gruesome crime. A preliminary autopsy found that Abu Khdeir was still alive when he was set on fire.

A-6 Peninsula Clarion, Tuesday, July 8, 2014






Cleveland hopes for James’ homecoming ready forgiven James. Cleveland, without a major sports championship to celebrate in almost 50 years, is praying for a reunion. On Sunday, Cavs fans flocked to social media to feverishly track one of Gilbert’s private jets as it flew to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where the plane’s occupants dodged reporters and TV cameras with some deception. It’s not known if Gilbert was on the jet — or if the trip was even NBA-related — but that didn’t douse the freeagency firestorm. As James’ decision nears, there’s a renewed hope the prodigal son will come home. But in the backdrop looms the JamesGilbert relationship. James is giving serious thought to returning to Cleveland, to going home and making amends with the city for the one misstep in an otherwise impeccable NBA career. Tuesday is the fouryear anniversary of announcing he was

TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND — There was no eye contact, nothing to indicate any reconciliation. The breakup of LeBron James and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert was beyond bitter. But now, as James considers a return to the team he abandoned four years ago with an entire region breathlessly awaiting a homecoming it couldn’t imagine in its wildest dreams, it appears there has been some healing between the NBA superstar and his former boss. Once aligned as basketball partners, James and Gilbert could barely stand the sight of each other during Miami’s games in Cleveland the past four years. It was an intense standoff, awkward and seemingly irreparable. Time may have fixed their fractured relationship. Most of the rest of the city has al-

“taking my talents to South Beach,” and the city is once again on hold. James is set to meet with Heat president Pat Riley, who was able to lure the four-time league MVP to Miami in 2010 but could be running out of time to convince him to stay. Two people familiar with the situation said James will meet with Riley “in the next two or three days.” The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither the team nor James announced their plans publicly. On Monday, the Heat announced they intend to sign free agents Danny Granger and Josh McRoberts when the league’s moratorium ends later this week. Riley must hope those moves, and maybe another couple, are enough to keep James. The time and place of their critical meeting remains unknown. James holds all the cards. It’s his choice.

It was the same four years ago, when James ended his seven-year run in Cleveland by linking with All-Stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. The “Big 3” went on to win two titles and appear in four straight NBA finals, getting crushed by San Antonio this year. The trio could be splitting up. Wade and Bosh have been waiting to see what James will do, and it’s possible he’s going to go it alone. On July 8, 2010, “The Decision” played out in a national TV spectacle and was a blow to the collective psyche of Cleveland. Fans here couldn’t understand why James, Akron born and bred, would intentionally embarrass the people who say they loved him most. In those early hours afterward, some Cleveland fans burned his No. 23 jersey in streets near where his larger-than-life figure towered on a building billboard. It was an ugly scene. Gilbert added fuel to the inferno.

Cleveland’s dynamic owner, never afraid to offer his opinion, wrote a letter to Cleveland fans, condemning James for a “shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own.” Gilbert called James “our former hero” and the “self-declared former King.” Gilbert also guaranteed the Cavs would win a title before James, a boast he later swallowed when James won his first title in his second year in Miami while his old team went 40-108 in two seasons without him. Gilbert further ripped James by telling the AP in a phone call that he believed the two-time MVP quit during the playoffs against Boston. “It’s not about him leaving,” Gilbert said. “It’s the disrespect. It’s time for people to hold these athletes accountable for their actions. Is this the way you raise your children? I’ve been holding this all in for a long time.”

Oilers lose in slugfest Staff report

The Peninsula Oilers opened a road trip with an 11-9 loss to the Mat-Su Miners on Monday. The Oilers now travel to Fairbanks, where they play the Goldpanners five times in four days, starting with a 7 p.m. game today. Peninsula is 7-8 in the Alaska Baseball League, 2 1-2 games behind the Anchorage Bucs in the American League. Monday’s contest featured plenty of offense on both sides, with both squads finishing with 12 hits. The Oilers used five pitchers, while Mat-Su used six. For the Oilers, Josh Rose had a pair of home runs, finishing 2 for 3 with three runs and three RBIs. Mylz Jones was 3 for 4, while Alex Rubanowitz was 2 for 3 with three runs and two RBIs, and Nick Thurman was 2 for 5. But despite all the offense, the game may have been decided by defense. In the second, Miners center fielder Cameron Frost made a highlight catch on AJ Hernandez, robbing him of a likely two-run, inside-the-park homer. The Oilers also lost a couple of runs in the first, when a line drive turned into a dead ball when it hit the umpire. All that came back to haunt the Oilers in the eighth inning, when Mat-Su broke an 8-8 tie with three runs. Naturally, Frost had the big hit in the inning, a two-RBI double to right center. The Oilers rallied with one in the ninth, but could get no more. The Miners jumped out to a 7-1 lead after the third inning, getting to Tyler Gibson for seven runs and eight hits in two innings. The Oilers’ lone run in the first three innings was a home run by Rose. Peninsula started the comeback with four runs in the fifth inning. Drake Zarate started the fifth inning with a walk, then Rose followed with a two-run home run. Ethan McGill then had

Spectators cheer as the pack passes during the third stage of the Tour de France cycling race over 96.3 miles with start in Cambridge and finish in London, England, Monday.

Tour wraps its English debut Germany’s Kittel picks up another sprinting victory in Buckingham Palace finish JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press

LONDON — At this point, the top Tour de France sprint star might be called Sir Marcel. Marcel Kittel, the German with a French first name, led a bunch sprint to win Monday’s Stage 3 with a finish on the doorstep of Queen Elizabeth’s Buckingham Palace. Two days earlier, he courted royal attention as Prince William and Kate saw him win Stage 1 in Yorkshire in another sprint. The stage wrapped up the English debut to this 101st Tour edition, a rousing success among cycling-crazed British fans. Riders hopped on planes and bid “au revoir” to the UK before flying across

the English Channel onto the race’s home turf. Rain in the City of London doused riders at the end of the 155-kilometer (96-mile) ride from the university town of Cambridge to a dramatic finish past landmarks Big Ben and Westminster. Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali retained the overall leader’s yellow jersey with a 2-second lead over the most likely contenders to win the three-week race in Paris on July 27. Kittel, led out perfectly by Giant-Shimano teammates, made it look easy as he sped down a final wide approach on The Mall with Buckingham Palace behind him. Peter Sagan of Slovakia was second and Australia’s Mark Renshaw was third.

“I’m really, really happy I could win in front of Buckingham Palace,” said Kittel, who won four Tour stages last year. “It was one of the greatest finishes I’ve ever seen in front of this great scenery.” FIRST PARIS, NOW LONDON The hulking German made it a tale of two cities. He added London glory to his record after also winning on the Champs-Elysees in Paris, in the Tour finale last year. His job in the sprints got a lot easier after Britain’s Mark Cavendish pulled out of the race after injuring his shoulder in a crash in Saturday’s Stage 1. “It’s one big opponent that is not in the race anymore,” Kittel said. “Of course, that changes things for me, but

also for the team.” Kittel is no threat for the yellow jersey. Like many sprinters, he struggles on climbs and fell nearly 20 minutes behind Nibali in the overall standings in an upand-down ride on Sunday through the hills and dales of Yorkshire. Nibali’s biggest challengers for the prized leader’s shirt remain title-holder Chris Froome of Britain and Spain’s Alberto Contador, who finished with the same time as the Italian and Kittel in an 84-rider bunch. On Monday, the pack cruised nervously and let two breakaway riders go free on Monday. The duo was caught with about four miles left.

Orioles score 6 runs in 11th to topple Nationals By The Associated Press

Shields (9-4) spent the first seven seasons of his career with the Rays before being dealt to the Royals in December 2012 as part of a seven-player trade in which Kansas City sent 2013 AL rookie of the year Wil Myers and another top young prospect, Jake Odorizzi (4-8), to Tampa Bay.

The Angels extended their home winning streak to 11 games, one shy of the franchise record set in 1967 — their second season in Anaheim. They are 16 games over .500 for the first time since ending the 2012 season at 89-73, and remain 3 1/2 games behind AL West-

Yedlin back with Sounders TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer

TUKWILA, Wash. — DeAndre Yedlin confidently raced up and down the field for the United States against one of the top teams in the world, showing off skills that were recognized in Seattle and Major League Soccer but not so well known internationally. And as he watched Yedlin’s performance against Belgium with pride, Seattle coach Sigi Schmid couldn’t help but feel that playing so well in the World Cup could bring an end to Yedlin’s time with the Sounders sooner rather than later. “When you look at it, he’s a guy that’s about to turn 21 and how many 21-year-old right backs have three World Cup games under their belt?” Schmid said. “That’s a very exclusive market. It’s something that we are proud of.” Yedlin rejoined the Sound-

ers on Monday with a much higher profile than he had when the U.S. gathered for World Cup training camp nearly two months ago in Northern California and there was no certainty he would be on the plane to Brazil. Yedlin is expected to be available for both of Seattle’s matches this week against rival Portland — in the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday and then in MLS play Sunday. He returned to a flurry of attention after the U.S. was eliminated by Belgium in the round of 16 and amid reports that a deal is already in place for Yedlin to make the move to Europe. Yedlin did not comment directly on reports coming from Italy about a pending deal that would see the 20-year-old defender move to AS Roma in 2015 after completing this season with Seattle. Yedlin said playing in Europe has always

been a goal, but he quickly highlighted the improved talent of the MLS. Seattle general manager Adrian Hanauer issued a statement saying if a deal with a foreign team is finalized the team will announce it. “I’m kind of letting my representatives handle that right now,” Yedlin said. “They’ll obviously get back to me on that information but for right now I’m just focused on Seattle.” Schmid sounded almost resigned that eventually Yedlin will leave Seattle and get his shot at playing in one of the top leagues in the world. “At the end of the day you want to do what is best for the players and help the players continue to grow and advance,” Schmid said. “We’re a club that wants to win and wants to succeed and I also think success is also predicated on when you do what is best for the players, you’re going to have success.”

Deal gets nearer for concussion claims MARYCLAIRE DALE Associated Press

A federal judge on Monday granted preliminary approval to a landmark deal that would compensate thousands of former NFL players for concussion-related claims. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Anita Brody in Philadelphia came about two weeks after the NFL

agreed to remove a $675 million cap on damages. Brody had previously questioned whether that would be enough money to pay all claims. “A class action settlement that offers prompt relief is superior to the likely alternative — years of expensive, difficult, and uncertain litigation, with no assurance of recovery, while retired players’ physical and

mental conditions continue to deteriorate,” Brody wrote. More than 4,500 former players have filed suit, some accusing the league of fraud for its handling of concussions. The settlement is designed to last at least 65 years and give $1 million or more to retirees who develop Lou Gehrig’s disease and other profound neurological problems. C

year’s Central Peninsula Habitat for Humanity house immediately after the wedding, Crystal Stonecipher said. “It would not have been possible for us for a long time if this hadn’t happened,” she said. The family of five is currently living in a two-bedroom trailer, with a leaky roof and knob-less front door, Crystal Stonecipher said. This winter their pipes froze and the home had no running water for a period of time, she said. Radtke said the first qualification to receive a Habitat for Humanity home is that the family is found to be living in unsafe or poor conditions. The Stoneciphers’ situation was also considered “overcrowding,” he said. The kids will be able to play outside at their new home, Crystal Stonecipher said. They will be able to have friends over. Their future neighbors, also recipients of Habitat for Humanity homes, came to watch the ground breaking, Crystal Stonecipher said. “It opens up everything for us,” Nathon Stonecipher said.

Not a handout

Saturday was the first day friends and volunteers were allowed to start helping, said Jeannie Fanning, an Envoy at the Salvation Army, and friend of Crystal and Nathon. She came wielding peanut butter cookies. Fanning said she doesn’t have much hands-on experience with construction, but she could at least act as a “pack mule.” Fanning said Central Kenai Peninsula Habitat for Humanity is an organization that is actually meeting the needs of its residents, she said.

Moving forward The Central Peninsula Habitat for Humanity has the most houses per capita world wide, Radtke said. However, many Kenai residents still need a new home, Radtke said. This year 19 applications were filed for a house that only one family will receive, he said. Finding funding and volunteers are two major challenges for every project, he said. Houses can only be built when there is enough money, and how fast a home is built depends on how many volunteer hours are put in, he said. This year, amidst the business relocation on the Soldotna “Y,” Peggy Mullen, owner of River City Books, let Habitat for Humanity take whatever salvageable materials they could use for this year’s home once the stores were moved out. Radtke said Habitat for Humanity was able to pull thousands of dollars worth of supplies for the Stoneciphers’ home. “It is that kind of generosity that makes the Kenai Habitat for Humanity so successful,” Radtke said.

A qualifying family must also have a steady income, and be able to pay off the cost of the house, Radtke said. Financially the payment process is a nointerest loan, he said. “If a home costs $100,000 the family will pay $100,000,” Radtke said. “It’s a hand up, not a hand out.” Once selected, “500 sweat equity hours” must be provided, which the hands of the family Kelly Sullivan can be or volunteers can accomplish, reached at kelly.sullivan@penNathon Stonecipher said.

didn’t get a chance to talk to him. “Unfortunately he was not found alive,” Peters said. “It’s a horrible end to a holiday celebration for families to deal with a fatality.” Kenai Police Chief Gus Sandahl said his department made three DUI arrests over the Fourth of July weekend. Two of the arrests involved drivers who left the scene of an accident on Auk Street after 1 a.m. Friday. Samuel Mesa, 21, of Kenai and Benjamin Haakenson, 29, of Soldotna were arrested seven minutes apart, Sandahl said. Mesa was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident and for violating conditions of release. Haakenson was arrested for a DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. Both men were taken to Wildwood Pretrial Facility. Sandahl said Kenai police also received three separate reports of lost kids during the Fourth of July Festival at the Green Strip Park, but all three children were found. With the holiday festivals in Girdwood, Seward and Kenai, Peters said troopers know from experience how many people are out on the roadways and campgrounds and plan for making contacts with people and provide safety reminders. Add alcohol to the mix and situations could be dangerous, Peters said. With increased enforcement during the Independence Day weekend, Peters said the trooper’s presence was noticeable. Statistics on how many DUI arrests made over the weekend are not yet available, she said. “We know there is a lot of activity with all those people coming and going and unfortunately when groups collide bad things can happen,” she said. “We want people to have fun, but it is more important they are safe.”

picked up Caven and drove her to the Sterling Highway and Anchor Point paramedics transported her to South Peninsula Hospital in Homer. From there, Caven was flown to Providence Medical Hospital in Anchorage, according to the report. Caven died from her injuries at about 3:30 a.m. Saturday. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this case, according to the trooper report. Peters said toxicology reports take 6 to 8 weeks to come back. “We know people are out having a good time and it’s OK that they are drinking but we encourage people to not operate a vehicle,” Peters said. “We want people to have a good time but have a plan and stay safe.” While the accident in Seward on Saturday also involved an ATV, it did not contribute to the man’s death, Peters said. Patrick Wallace, 29, was found at the bottom of a cliff 90 minutes after troopers had attempted to pull him over while he was riding a mini fourwheeler, for a traffic violation near the intersection of Vinewood Lane and Bruno Road near Seward. Peters said Wallace abandoned the four-wheeler, later found by troopers. Troopers were not actively pursuing him until campers in the Stoney Creek RV Park called dispatch to report they saw the suspect matching Wallace’s description walking down a hill near the park. Units attempted to locate Wallace in the area for 30 minutes when he was discovered at the bottom of a cliff around midnight, according to the trooper dispatch. The State Medical Examiner requested the body be sent to Anchorage for an autopsy. Reach Dan Balmer at danPeters said troopers don’t iel.balmer@peninsulaclarion. know why he fled because they com.

Around Alaska Delta Junction man dies in Richardson Highway motorcycle crash ANCHORAGE — Alaska State Troopers are investigating a July 4 motorcycle crash on the Richardson Highway that killed a 56-year-old Delta Junction man. Troopers say a passing motorist found the body of Rex Chapman Friday afternoon. Troopers say the motorist spotted the motorcycle off the highway and checked the area. Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says no immediate conclusions have been reached about what led to the unwitnessed crash. KTUU says it could take as long as two months to get toxicology data to determine whether alcohol or drugs were involved.

Body found near Bethel identified BETHEL — Authorities have identified a body recently found near Bethel as Preston Rory Michaels. KYUK reports Bethel police were notified of the identity by the state medical examiner’s office. The body was found late last month on a beach on an island near a fish camp across from the southwest Alaska town, which is located at the mouth of the Kuskokwim River. Michaels had been missing since December. His disappearance spurred a search on the Kuskokwim River where he was living in a cabin. A cause of death has not yet been determined. According to authorities, there were no signs of foul play.

Knitted artwork decorating Sitka signposts vandalized SITKA — Vandals have destroyed knitted decorations that were put on Sitka public signposts by a local woman in a personal beautification project. Fran Hartman discovered that at least six of the 16 signpost decorations she put up on Lincoln Street in recent weeks were in tatters, the Daily Sitka Sentinel reported. “It breaks my heart,” Hartman said. “I spent hundreds of hours, and my own money, and I was just starting to get businesses to back me, and now they’re just gone.” The vandalism occurred overnight last Wednesday. Hartman made the discovery the following day. One of her projects was to add knitted eyeballs to fishshaped bicycle racks. “I wanted to brighten everyone’s day,” she said.

. . . Vote Continued from page A-1

Pryor was state attorney general more than a decade ago, and for just four years, compared to his nearly dozen in the Senate. His harkening back to that time points to his desire to make the election a choice between a famous name in Arkansas state politics and first-term Rep. Tom Cotton, a Republican whom many view as less personable and engaging than Pryor. The GOP strategy, in return, is straightforward. One TV ad has a young girl spelling Pryor’s name as O-B-A-M-A. Traditionally emphasized by first-time campaigners, personal biographies are central to several other Democrats’ re-election campaigns. Alaska Sen. Mark Begich has aired a TV ad with footage of him as a boy of about 10, when his father, Rep. Nick Begich, died in a plane crash. “Mark is clearly his father’s son,” says the narrator, Begich’s wife, Deborah Bonito. And after 18 years in the Senate, Democrat Mary Landrieu is arguably the most accomplished member of her famous Louisiana political family. Still, she has aired an ad in which her father — former New Orleans Mayor Moon Landrieu — says affectionately: “When you have nine children, you’re bound to have one who’s hard-headed.” Some Democrats might say the same about the GOP’s strategy of bashing “Obamacare” now that the Affordable Care Act is 4 years old. Not Tillis, who says Obama and Hagan exaggerated the extent to which people could keep their doctors and insurance plans. He calls it “the greatest example of a promise not kept.” He’s getting help with the message from Crossroads GPS, the political group run in part by Republican strategist Karl Rove, which is spending more than $3.5 million on television ads in North Carolina this summer. The group’s latest ad attacking Hagan asks whether voters know she “cast the deciding vote for Obamacare.” “The idea that this will be anything less than a referendum on Obamacare is wishful thinking,” said Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C. The amount spent on the Hagan-Tillis race — about $17 million and climbing — is among the nation’s highest. It comes in a state that few can rival for political change in recent years, as Republicans ended a century of frustration by winning control of both legislative chambers and the governor’s office in 2012. C




What came next is a “conservative revolution” that Tillis said he’s proud of leading. Hagan and her fellow Democrats argue the Republicans went too far in a state so closely divided politically that Obama carried it in 2008 and lost it four years later. They believe a bump in teacher pay that Tillis promises lawmakers will enact this summer won’t erase North Carolin-

Hartman said she has received positive reviews from local residents about her project. She also hoped it would leave a memorable impression on tourists. Some of her knitted contributions came from fellow knitters that she’s met around the world. Hartman had planned to add more of the knitted decorations, but said soon after the vandalism that she’s having second thoughts. Early in Hartman’s “yarn-bombing” project, someone stole a stop-sign wrapping that featured three crocheted skulls framed in red. Yarn-bombing is a form of street art that has been done in cities across the country in recent years, with knitters crafting cozies for everything from vehicles to trees. Last summer, more than 1,800 knitters covered Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Bridge in 3,000 feet of colorful yarn.

Boy pulled from creek waters dies of injuries ANCHORAGE — A 5-year-old boy pulled last week from Glacier Creek near Girdwood has died. KTUU-TV reports the child died Sunday morning. The boy disappeared Friday as his mother helped another child into a car seat. The mother called emergency dispatchers and a search was launched by Girdwood emergency responders. The boy was spotted from the air in the water on mudflats at the creek’s runoff. He was flown to Providence Hospital in critical condition.

Woman charged in crash that caused Fairbanks outage FAIRBANKS — A 46-year-old woman has been charged with driving under the influence in the weekend crash that knocked out power to downtown Fairbanks. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Tina L. Bolt is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident and driving with a revoked license. Fairbanks police say Bolt on Saturday night tried driving a sport utility vehicle east on Second Avenue and hit multiple signs and parked cars, including one in which a man and woman were sitting. Police say the man confronted Bolt and told her to stay but she fled. Police say Bolt sideswiped another car, crashed through barricades in a construction area and smashed into a power pole. The pole fell on the SUV and power was interrupted for about a half hour. — The Associated Press

ians’ memories of the deep cuts to education that Republicans passed last year. That approach, said Rep. David Price, D-N.C., is Hagan’s best chance to focus November voters’ attention on something other than Obama. Her strategy “is exactly what she should do,” Price said, because Tillis “has got that hung right around his neck.” Hagan, meanwhile, points

to achievements close to home. They include her push to provide medical care to military families exposed to tainted water for decades at Camp Lejeune, the giant Marine Corps base in eastern North Carolina. “Kay Hagan,” said veteran North Carolina GOP strategist Paul Shumaker, “is hoping the sins of Raleigh are much bigger than the sins of Washington.”

Peninsula Clarion, Tuesday, July 8, 2014

Scrapbooks full of memories will be cherished by friends alized I had gifted them with “time capsules” of their lives. Only one friend was offended that I had returned her items. She said she was “appalled” that I didn’t cherish them myself. The joy expressed by the others superseded the angry friend. “Unsure,” return those items to the senders! — LINDA IN INDIANA DEAR ABBY: I did the same thing with photos. But Abigail Van Buren instead of returning them to the person(s) who gave them to me, I gave them to the children who were pictured in the photos. Others I saved and presented to the nowgrown child’s spouse as a wedding gift. So far they have been well-received. Most people are surprised to learn that I actually kept all these photos of them or their children for so long and appreciated the effort I put into the scrapbooks. — MEMORY KEEPER DEAR ABBY: I am not a crafter and I’m not very sentimental. I don’t enjoy what I consider clutter. As I’ve grown older, I have done my best to pare down and eliminate things I no longer have use for. I have

embraced technology. If “Unsure” were my friend, I would appreciate it more if she scanned anything she wanted to give back to me. Either way, I would probably view the scrapbook or e-book, and then deep-six it after the viewing. It crossed my mind that perhaps “Unsure” is cleaning out, and this is her way of getting rid of her “clutter.” — MAUREEN IN FLORIDA DEAR ABBY: Yes! Bundle and return the cards and letters with a note about what the correspondence has meant to you over the years. As a young adult, I lived all over the world and frequently wrote my friends and family about my life and what I was experiencing. Over the last few years I have received bundles from my mother, my sister and a friend — all letters they had hung onto for 20 to 30 years. What a surprise and a joy. Reading these old cards and letters gave me a window into a world that no longer exists, and reminded me of who I was then and what my life was like. Yes, please give back the correspondence. — MARIANNE IN CALIFORNIA Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars





work out very well. Tonight: Be responsive to a loved one. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH Your focus is helping you clear out as much as you can, be it work, errands or any other type of responsibility. Be careful, though, when spending, as you could go way overboard. Stay mellow and even. Make time for a late-day meeting. Tonight: Nap, then decide. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHHYou could face challenges and solve them today. You might want to apply this skill where it counts. You have a natural sense of how to handle difficult people and decisions. Use that skill. Touch base with a loved one late today. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHH You might not be up for much, but as responsible as you are, you will maintain your obligations. A child or loved one could surprise you with his or her reactions. Know that you need to understand what is happening with this person. Use your intuition. Tonight: Be as naughty as you like. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You might want to get on the phone and schedule an important meeting or get-together. You could hear much more than you want, but you are able to process the whole matter anyway. Trust a friend who has a suggestion. A partner weighs in. Tonight: Make it early. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Check out a financial matter. You might like what you hear and nearly feel it is too good to be true. Whether you think so or not, you can wait and not commit yet. Know which way to go with a loved one. Understand your liabilities. Tonight:

By Leigh Rubin


Follow a hunch. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHYou know that if you stay tuned in to your ability to detach, you will see a situation far differently. Someone might try to trigger you in order to get what he or she wants. Don’t allow this person’s manipulation to work, unless you want the same end result. Tonight: All smiles. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHH As off as you might feel in the a.m., is as good as you will feel later today. Pace yourself accordingly, knowing when you need to pick up the pace. A partner has happily filled in where he or she could. You might be picking up a lot of information on a different level. Tonight: Do your thing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Use the daylight hours to the max, when you feel on top of your life and the world. Enlist a couple of friends in a pet cause or interest. The power of numbers speaks. Zero in on what you want to do as opposed to what you think you should. Tonight: Play it low-key. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHYou might want to reconsider a personal matter that involves someone you look up to. You need to determine if you are coming from a biased point of view as well. Others kick back and watch your reactions. Act knowing that you are a role model of sorts. Tonight: Join friends spontaneously. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHYou seem to be able to come to terms with a lot that others cannot. Think in terms of gains and growth. Know what you are aiming for. Your ingenuity will serve as your vehicle to that goal. Trust your hunches, but also trust your intuition. Tonight: Out.

Getting medical records Dear Readers: Do you know what your rights are when it comes to medical records? The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule gives you the right to not only see but get copies of most of your medical records. Providers do have the right to charge a fee for copies of your medical records. I have found that some do and some don’t. Ask your health-care professional if he or she does. Consider if you want only the past year (and it’s just a few pages) or you want ALL of your records (it’s a lot). Medical staff can charge you for time spent copying your records and the materials used to do it, if they want to. State laws vary on this issue, but it’s important for you to know your rights. — Heloise P.S.: To keep up, ask for a copy of ALL of your lab tests, etc., right then, and start your own health file. It’s easy to do. Wet shoes Dear Heloise: Help! I got stuck outside in a rainstorm, and even though the leather on my dress shoes is protected, the insides were soaked. What should I do next time this happens? — Jonathan L., via email Boy, this does seem to happen, and it’s not fun! Next time, just grab some newspapers, open them up and kind of crunch them into a loose ball, then stuff them into the shoes. It helps the shoes keep their shape, and it absorbs the moisture (you may need to replace the papers a couple of times). Do NOT put the shoes near direct heat or sunlight. Also, sprinkle a little baking soda in them to help absorb moisture and some stinky odor as well. — Heloise

DEAR ABBY: May I comment about the question from “Unsure in the West”, who wanted to create scrapbooks out of all the cards and letters she received over the years? My generation (30s) is all about social media. “Unsure” mentioned that all the items she wanted to include were pre-Facebook. I am a bit oldfashioned (or maybe stubborn) so I don’t do Facebook or Twitter, and I don’t understand the importance of a “hashtag.” I have no idea how to Skype, nor do I pay my bills online. I think the scrapbook idea is wonderful. There is something special about having tangible items to go along with important milestones and memories. Even if the gifts themselves don’t strike a chord with her friends, surely the consideration and time she puts into the scrapbooks will make her loved ones realize how important they are to her. I say, proceed with confidence. Your friends are lucky to have you. — L.K. IN THE MIDWEST DEAR L.K.: Like you, readers overwhelmingly support “Unsure” in her efforts to create scrapbooks of memories for her friends. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I have also saved cards, letters, wedding photos and pictures of newborns, etc., for several decades. A few years ago, I simply returned them to the people who had sent them. Nearly all of the recipients squealed with delight as they thanked me, having re-

Pet Tails Loch Ness monster it isn’t: 6-foot crocodile spotted in Greece ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece has its own lake monster — and it’s no Nessie. The Fire Brigade and authorities on the resort island of Crete say a 6-foot crocodile was spotted last week in a manmade lake near the seaside town of Rethymno. Crocodiles are not native to Greece. Regional official Vangelis Mamangakis said Monday it was unclear how long it has

been there. He told private Antenna TV that parts of the lake have been fenced off and efforts will be made Thursday to remove it. He said the crocodile was probably a pet that grew too big for its owner, who “thought it would be a good idea to dump it in the lake.” Residents are blaming the crocodile for missing lambs and ducks, and souvenir shops are now selling inflatable crocodiles.
