JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Beginning Monday and lasting through Aug. 25, the Alaska State Archives Research Room will be closed and research services limited to an emergency-only basis. That is to allow for staff to transfer and process 13,000 boxes from two other facilities to the new state library, archives and museum vault. The state department of education, in a release, said that staff will fulfill emergency requests for student transcripts and address urgent reference questions on a caseby-case basis.

Ten communities on the Kenai Peninsula have CERT members. Right: Community Emergency Response Team trainees transport mock earthquake victims to a staging area.
The classrooms and hallways of Soldotna High School were dark, lit only by the occasional emergency light and the jagged, shaky beams emitting from Community Emergency Response Team trainee headlamps as teams moved quickly through the building, searching classrooms for victims of a simulated earthquake. The building was largely silent, save for the occasional anguished scream of a volunteer victim as they simulated shaken mothers whose children had been killed — many with broken bones, head injuries and other afflictions designed to test the triage knowledge of 12 team members who worked through the disaster drill as the capstone of the community emergency response, or CERT, program. In the scenario, a 7.2 magnitude
earthquake struck about 45 miles from Soldotna and emergency services personnel were responding to hundreds of damage and injury reports on the Central Peninsula area; CERT members have been called to help and the Soldotna CERT team was assigned to the high school where about 250 people were gathered when the earthquake hit. The CERT team was assigned to search the building for injured and trapped people. The task required significant logistical planning. The group broke into three groups and canvassed the school — marking each door with a series of signals indicating that the room had been searched and how many, if any, victims were inside. The students missed a few things. In one room, Billie Sylvester screamed so loudly her son Joseph Sylvester couldn’t continue to play dead with a straight face and the team See DRILL, page A-7
Kodiak High works with NASA on temblor project PETER J MLADINEO Kodiak Daily Mirror
KODIAK, Alaska — A global initiative led by NASA to develop ways to better predict earthquakes will soon get legs in Kodiak. And some of its data crunchers will be Kodiak High School students. “We will have some NASA interns coming here this fall,” Kodiak Island Borough School District Stewart McDonald told the Kodiak Daily Mirror. “They’re going to be installing the earthquake sensors that talk to the satellites. They will be installed right here we’ll have students working on these proj-
ects directly with the scientific community.” The Global Earthquake Forecasting System is a new international network under development by several partners in research, industry and education, including NASA’s Ames Research Center, San Jose State University, Italy’s Polytechnic di Milani, Switzerland’s International Centre for Earth Simulation, India’s Variable Energy Cyclotron Center, Turkey’s Middle East Technical University, Quebec’s Ministry of Natural Resources, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Silicon Valley’s GeoCosmo Science Center, New Jersey’s Trillium Learning and several
Alaskan school districts — including Kodiak. Ron Fortunato, director of Trillium Education, which is heading up the educational outreach for the project as part of his American Bridge program, explained how the system works. Every time there is an earthquake, tectonic plates underground crush against each other. Some of those tectonic zones occur just south of Kodiak Island. “When they push hard on each other, they actually create stresses that change the chemistry of some of the particles down there and create charged ions that form currents
‘When these sensors get set up the students will be looking at the real-time data that’s coming out of the earth.’ — Ron Fortunato Director, Trillium Education of electricity and different compounds,” Fortunato said. The chemicals rise to the earth’s surface and, scientists postulate, observing the chemical reactions may significantly improve the predictive abilities of scientists. Fortunato maintains that earthquake predictions could now be stretched to days before a quake
instead of the current seconds. Kodiak is the very first school district to participate in the program. The first two sensors in the country will be in Kodiak, with the data read by Kodiak High students. “When these sensors get set See KODIAK, page A-7
Juneau e-cigarette users face new but familiar rule KATIE MORITZ Morris News Service-Alaska Juneau Empire
JUNEAU, Alaska — Juneau resident Todd Mace picked up electronic cigarette use about a year ago as a healthier option while he tried to kick a decadelong cigarette habit. Being able to take a couple puffs of his ecigarette inside the bars kept him out of the lineup of smokers outside downtown bars — and away from temptation, he said. But now Mace, along with Juneau’s other e-cigarette smokers, must follow the same rules imposed on tobacco smokers —
no smoking in bars, restaurants, bus stop shelters, city buildings and other public places. The ordinance amending the city’s pre-existing secondhand smoke control code to include e-cigarettes was adopted at a June 30 Assembly meeting. It puts into writing what some city institutions — including the Juneau School District and the Zach Gordon Youth Center — had already decided to do: put restrictions on a relatively new product that hasn’t been addressed through legislation. Robert Barr, director of the downtown library, was integral in getting something on e-cigarettes in the Juneau books. He
said that since e-cigarettes became popular, he has had about six instances in which library patrons either asked if they could use an e-cigarette inside or just took one out and started puffing. With e-cigarettes left out of the city’s secondhand smoke control code, library staff couldn’t legally say no, Barr said, and they couldn’t do anything when other patrons complained about the vapor. “We couldn’t really address those complaints people were having,” he said. “I asked the city attorney if that was something that fell under the city secondhand smoking code.” C

One day before a “supermoon,” Virgin America flight VX415 from New York (JFK) to Los Angeles (LAX) crosses the waxing gibbous moon on its final approach to Los Angeles Airport as viewed Friday from Whittier, California.
Heads up! Supermoon is here Look! Up in the sky! It’s supermoon! Because our celestial neighbor is relatively close to Earth, these full moons appeared to be unusually large over the weekend. That distance varies because the moon follows an elliptical orbit. When it’s close and full, it appears bigger and brighter than normal, although the difference can be hard to detect. The full moon Saturday may have seemed huge, but it was just an illusion caused by its position in the sky. Two other supermoons will come later this summer on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9. In the meantime, check out a slideshow of supermoons from around the world online at www.peninsulaclarion.com and send your own pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org

BLM to remove fewer mustangs across West By MARTIN GRIFFITH Associated Press
Photo by Rashah McChesney/Peninsula Clarion
Nets in the water Several hundred people lined the north and south beaches of the Kenai River during a personal use dipnet fishing period Sunday in Kenai. Despite the slow catch rates, the city docks and campgrounds were swamped during the first weekend of the Kenai River dipnet season.
RENO, Nev. — The U.S. Bureau of Land Management says it will remove fewer wild horses and burros from the range across the West this summer because of budget constraints and overflowing holding pens. Under its roundup schedule announced this week, the bureau plans to gather 2,400 of the animals through the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. All but 215 of them will be horses. Plans call for removal of 1,535 horses in Wyoming, 285 in Nevada, 200 in Utah, 75 in Oregon, 50 in California and 35 in Idaho. The bureau also plans to gather 140 burros in Arizona, 50 in California and 25 in Oregon. The announcement comes at a time when the bureau has been under increasing pressure from Western ranchers to step up removal of horses they say
threaten livestock and wildlife on drought-ravaged rangelands. The bureau estimates 40,600 of the animals — the vast majority of them horses — roam free on public rangelands in 10 Western states. The population exceeds by some 14,000 the number the agency has determined can exist in balance with other rangeland resources and uses. Bureau officials said aggravating the situation is severe drought that has resulted in reduced forage for the animals. The agency also faces limits on the number of horses and burros it can remove because holding facilities are at capacity. Some 49,000 of the animals are being held in governmentfunded short- and long-term facilities. Removal of fewer mustangs from the range “will exacerbate the difficult challenges we face in nearly every aspect of the wild horse program right now,” BLM officials said in a statement.
Workers struggle in Hamptons, playground for rich By FRANK ELTMAN Associated Press
SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. — This is a town where people are so rich that a $2 million home can be a handyman’s special. A town where the thrift shop is stocked with donations of designer dresses and handbags. But Southampton, with its privet hedges, pristine beaches and some estates costing tens of millions, also is where 40 percent of children get free or reduced school lunches, where a food pantry serves up to 400 clients a month and where some doctors
and nurses share homes owned by the local hospital because they can’t afford to buy or rent. Studies show the wealth gap separating the rich from everyone else is widening, and few places in the country illustrate that as starkly as Long Island’s Hamptons — America’s summer playground for the haves and have-mores, where even middleclass workers struggle with the high cost of living. “We have a tremendous amount of millionaires who live 3 miles from the food pantry, and they have no idea that there’s a need in this community,” said Mary Ann

Tupper, who retired last month after 21 years as the executive director of Human Resources of the Hamptons, a charity that assists 6,000 people annually through its food pantry and other services for the working poor. “In the summer they’re working and everything is pretty good, but come the winter, all the nannies, the gardeners, the pool people, all those people are out of work, and then there’s no money,” Tupper said. “The income disparity is tremendous.” Kerry Lewendoski, who succeeded Tupper, adds: “The people aren’t just coming here to work in the summer. They live here; they have established homes and kids enrolled in the schools. Southampton is their home, and they still have trouble getting by.” Located on southeastern Long Island 80 miles from New York City, Southampton is one of several towns and villages stretching east along 40 miles of the Atlantic Ocean that collectively are known as the Hamptons. Census figures showed a 2010 population of 57,000 and a median income of $78,815.
But statistics in the Hamptons are an elusive notion, since many of the summertime denizens with their multimillion-dollar incomes identify themselves as residents of New York City or elsewhere. In the first quarter of 2014, the average selling price for a home in Southampton town was $1,845,431, though some oceanfront estates go for over $100 million. Celebrities spotted hanging out in the Hamptons include Christie Brinkley, Rachael Ray, Kelly Ripa and Howard Stern, among other members of high society in New York and elsewhere. Many of those who work in the Hamptons — painters, landscapers teachers, even journalists — live west of the region in suburban Long Island and commute as many as three hours roundtrip daily. From early spring to late autumn, the one primary road in and out of the Hamptons is jammed most mornings with pickup trucks and vans filled with tradespeople headed east. “There’s tons of work out here
because this is where the money is,” David Hahn said while trimming 16-foot hedges on a 10-acre Southampton estate where he has worked for two decades. His 30mile commute sometimes takes up to three hours round-trip. Kimberly Piazza is a secretary in her husband’s sod business and lives in the North Sea community in Southampton town, several miles north of the oceanfront estates. Coming out of the local general store, she said local milk prices are as high as $5.99 a gallon and eggs sell for up to $4 a dozen — nearly double what those staples cost elsewhere on Long Island. Gasoline prices are 50 cents to a dollar more a gallon at most stations in the Hamptons. “The image is that we’re all pretty much rich, hoity-toity, well-to-do people,” she said. “And while you do have some of those people, a majority of us are still working class.” At Southampton Hospital — the region’s primary medical facility that has 25,000 emergency room visits annually — administrators wrestled for years with staffing shortages because qualified applicants could not afford the cost of living. The hospital has since purchased three houses nearby and
allows 17 nurses to live there as part of their compensation package, said spokeswoman Marsha Kenny. A similar program exists for resident doctors, with a goal to keep some working full-time at the hospital when they complete their training. Last month, over neighbors objection, the town board unanimously approved a plan to build a 28-unit apartment complex, in part to provide affordable housing for people who work in the area. “We have teachers and critical care workers that are commuting an hour and a half each way to work,” said town supervisor Anna Throne-Holst. “What makes anyone think they’re going to make that commute? And if they do, are we really getting the best of the best?” R. Couri Hay, a Manhattan public relations executive and contributing editor at Hamptons Magazine, said many of the wealthy who summer in the Hamptons are concerned about the year-round workers and participate in many philanthropic events to help local charities. “All the fancy people paying $1,000 a ticket for a charity fundraiser, they’re spending this money to show support for the community,” Hay said.

What Others Say
Weeding out the invasives Orange hawkweed is so disruptive
to native plant species, that farmers and gardeners in Europe and beyond have given it fanciful names such as “King Devil,” ‘“Devil’s Paintbrush” and “Grim the Collier.” It can be spotted blooming these days in and around the Egan Drive median, sending up its orange and burnt red blooms in wide patches. Then there’s the oxeye daisy, which has seeds that can remain viable in the soil for up to 20 years. They can even sprout after passing through the digestive tract of an animal. The white petals and yellow center of the daisy is a common sight — one so frequent many may believe the bright flower was anything but a transplant. But, according to experts, it’s downright dangerous due to its ability to eradicate other native species. Right now, some of you may be thinking, “So, why should I care?” If left unchecked, invasive species in Alaska, a place relatively new to such attacks, can have devastating results on our economies and ecosystems, effectively undoing the framework that supports our unique environment. According to a joint study by the USDA Forest Service, the Department of Fish and Wildlife and the University of Alaska Cooperative Extension Service, “the growing tourism industry in Alaska, as well as oil and gas development, international trade and a burgeoning human population all contribute to an increase in invasive plant introduction and spread. Native wildflowers, forested ecosystems, riparian systems, and wildlife are all threatened by invasions of exotic species entering the state.” The problem is, these are only two examples of invasive weeds that plague Southeast Alaska. The pair fall in line with a long list of 42 other plants that have hitchhiked to our great state or acted as stowaways on everything from tourists and cargo, to vehicles and seed packets, to name just a few. During a study in Europe on the transportation of invasive plants, one car was tested to have hundreds of differing types of seeds on its exterior. Many of the invasive species prevalent in Southeast can be found in communities such as Juneau, Wrangell, Prince of Wales Island and other areas that act as transportation hubs. The good news is Alaska has it easy compared to the rest of the country. We have a unique opportunity up here — we can get ahead of the problem and stop it with effective planning. Now is as good a time as any to get started. This time of year, plants are large enough to be identified, but many aren’t mature enough to produce seeds just yet. Furthermore, Gov. Sean Parnell declared June 22-28 as Alaska Invasive Weeds Awareness Week and subsequently state, federal, local, private and nonprofit organizations, as well as the public, are working together to increase public awareness, promote invasive weed prevention and management and help keep our communities and environment free of invasive weeds. A number of events are planned all over Alaska — but Juneau and much of Southeast was left out. Instead, it’s up to local residents to take a few minutes to get out those gloves and spades, and dig up any invasives that may have found a home nearby. Respect private land, of course, and make sure to do your homework — it’s important to understand how a particular plant reproduces so you know just how to prevent it from spreading. The nasty and purvasive Bohemian Knotweed, for instance, has roots that spread by underground rhizomes and bares leaves that are so thick and dense that little light permeates to the undergrowth. Vast stands of these plants can be found all around Juneau; look around Twin Lakes next time you’re there for tall, bamboo-like stands of plants with broad leaves. When it comes to eradicating plants like these, it’s important to get all the rooty bits. For other weeds, it’s important to dig them up before they go to seed. Invasive species are no joke, but Alaska is in a unique position as it faces a problem that is absolutely surmountable. — Juneau Empire, July 2
Addressing the border crisis
Tens of thousands of Central American children, some accompanied by adults but most traveling alone, have surged across the U.S.-Mexican border in recent months. The flood has swamped the border security infrastructure as well as the youth housing facilities maintained by the Department of Health and Human Services. Under federal law, HHS must take charge of unaccompanied and undocumented minors 72 hours after they are detained by immigration agents. Washington can, and should, try to stop illegal immigration at the border, but it would be wiser ... to stabilize the communities from which immigrants are running. Now the Obama administration is asking Congress — which can’t agree on what day it is, let alone enact a law — to spend an additional $2 billion to improve the government’s ability to handle the growing problem. The president also wants Congress to change the 2008 federal law that automatically routes minors to immigration court; instead, he wants to let border agents quickly deport those children who can’t make a prima facie case for why they should be let in, a move designed to both lessen the burden on the system and serve as a deterrent to those still hoping to enter. This humanitarian crisis, which is how President Obama has described it, is both divisive and frustrating, and finding long-term solutions will require a broad and nuanced understanding of the problem. As the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has argued, this is a regional crisis that demands regional solutions. The United States should be involved in those solutions because it is more than just a wealthy country that attracts illegal immigrants; it bears some responsibility of its own for the violence and instability in Central America. According to a recent report by the independent, nonprofit International Crisis Group, rivalries between drug traffickers and an absence of governmental control along the Guatemala-Honduras border have made the area among the most violent in the world. Where are the drugs heading? Primarily to the U.S.,
Letters to the Editor Let voters decide bed tax Over the past weeks the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly has heard testimony about Ordinance 2014-25, to put before the voters, the option for a 4 percent transient accommodations tax. I urge them to pass this and let us have that vote. Seward, a Home Rule City with certain powers, instituted a 4 percent bed tax 14 years ago. It has had no negative impact, either within, or outside the city. They took action to help promote business, and keep the community viable and retain jobs. Revenues and accommodations within the city limits of Seward increased 218 percent over these years. The income goes half to the city coffers, and half to promote tourism. Go to Anchorage, and you will pay a 12 percent bed tax, applied daily. Anchorage does have a lot more to offer besides
where most of the demand for marijuana and cocaine comes from. Similarly, the most powerful street gangs in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras are transnational and have their roots in U.S. cities, including Los Angeles. And while drugs are being smuggled north, guns are being smuggled south. More than a quarter-million guns are slipped across the U.S.-Mexico border each year, according to a 2013 study by the University of San Diego’s Trans-Border Institute. Why does this matter? Because those who have spent time interviewing the unaccompanied minors showing up at the U.S. border report that the vast majority of them say they are fleeing violence and instability in their home countries — primarily Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. The children have described the conscriptions of boys by gangs, and retaliation against the families of those who refuse, including, in some cases, rape. Ironically, U.S. deportations of foreignborn criminals help feed the gangs that are prompting the flow of minors north. It’s important to distinguish between why someone flees a city and his or her decision on where to go. Once fear of gangs and violence seals the decision to run, the vast majority are choosing the U.S. as a destination, often hoping to reunite with family members who are already there. Many also are lured by misinformation spread by coyotes and traffickers suggesting that children, and mothers with children, can get permisos — permits — to stay. Some misinterpret the June 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which offers temporary status to some children who arrived before 2007, thinking that they too will be allowed to stay. Insufficient space in detention centers and youth housing facilities has led immigration authorities to release some young detainees into the custody of relatives or other sponsors, with an appearance ticket for a later court hearing. Significantly, it’s not just children fleeing the instability. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services reported last week that there has been a sevenfold increase since 2009 in undocumented migrants of all ages
a water slide as suggested by one recent speaker. No, they have no sales tax, but their property taxes are four times that of the Kenai Peninsula. Open the June issue of Alaska Magazine: Pages 70 to 74 are special advertising for the Mat-Su Borough, that funds their tourism a great deal more than the Kenai Peninsula. The Kenai Peninsula does not have special advertising pages in the magazine. Yes, KPTMC advertises, but they are very limited with funding. The transient accommodations tax would enable them to do so much more. By supporting and encouraging local business, it enhances the bottom line for all of us. And that includes all of us who pay property taxes. As is pointed out in the letter from the Ordinance sponsor, Bill Smith, this tax will also ease the property tax burden as state revenues decline. The public needs the opportunity to speak to it, via the ballot box. I see this as a huge win-win. The City of Homer stands to gain $400,000 per

seeking entry because they face a “credible fear” of being the victim of violence if returned to their home countries, most of them from Mexico and Central America. So violence as a catalyst for migration has been a long-unfolding problem. The Obama administration is right to seek humane ways of dealing with the influx, including adding immigration judges, lawyers and others crucial to a speedier deportation process. Sending people back more quickly would also help blunt the rumors of permisos for children. But in addition, the government needs to consider the connections between the American drug users who create the demand that feeds the violent drug cartels, the multinational street gangs and the free flow of illicit weapons across the border. What can be done? Reducing drug demand and the southward flow of guns would help, as would an increase in U.S. assistance designed to stimulate economic development in Central America, and thus job prospects. The U.S. could expand its work with gang-intervention programs in the Central American barrios. Homeland Security recently moved 60 additional investigators to its anti-smuggling efforts along the Texas border, efforts that should continue and, if needed, increase to break up the human trafficking networks. Everard Meade, director of the Trans-Border Institute, suggests treating the violence surrounding the drug traffickers and street gangs “like the regional armed conflict that it actually is” rather than as a U.S. immigration problem. Washington can, and should, try to stop illegal immigration at the border, but it would be wiser and more humane to find ways to stabilize the communities from which immigrants are running. Any solutions must come with the full involvement and engagement of the governments of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico, a challenge given the endemic corruption in those governments. But the U.S. is in the best position to bring the players together and forge the strategic, regional approach to ending this humanitarian crisis. –L.A. Times, Los Angeles, CA. July 6
year. That will be likewise for other cities in the borough. In spite of the recent action by the Homer Chamber of Commerce, I sincerely hope the Homer City Council will support putting this issue before the voters, as the City and Chamber of Soldotna has done. In a recent article in the Anchorage Daily News, Craig Medred noted the number of nonresident fishing licenses purchased last year that demonstrates the huge interest for recreational fishing in Alaska. Recreational Fishing is an economic engine on the Kenai, but we have so much more to offer, our trails, our parks, our beautiful peninsula that needs to see more national and international advertising. That can only happen with adequate funding. Please encourage the Assembly to pass ordinance 2014-25, and let us the voters make this so important decision. Milli Martin Homer

Obama seeks governors’ support on immigrant kids By ALICIA A. CALDWELL Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell met privately with dozens of governors Sunday as the Obama administration tried to get support from the leaders of states that will host thousands of the Central American children who have crossed the Mexican border on their own since Oct. 1. Governors of both parties expressed concerns about the cost to states, including providing public education for the children, according to those who attended the meeting. Burwell left the meeting through a side door without talking to reporters. “Our citizens already feel burdened by all kinds of challenges.
They don’t want to see another burden come into their state,” said Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat. “However we deal with the humanitarian aspects of this, we’ve got to do it in the most cost-effective way possible.” Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad were among the most vocal Republican critics. They seized on the administration’s plans to place the children with friends or family members without checking on their immigration status. Under current law, immigrant children from countries that don’t border the United States and who cross into this country by themselves are turned over to HHS within 72 hours. From there, they often are reunited with parents or placed with other relatives al-
ready living in the country, while they wait for an immigration court to decide their future. The court process can take years. Neither Burwell’s agency nor immigration officials check the immigration status of relatives who take custody of the immigrant children. Since Oct. 1 more than 57,000 children have crossed the border alone. Most are from Honduras, El Salvador or Guatemala. “We want to make sure they’re placed in a safe and supportive home or placement, but also, it should be somebody that is legal and somebody that will be responsible to see that they show up for the hearing,” Branstad said. According to data from the Justice Department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review, about a quarter of immigrants
facing deportations hearings don’t show up as ordered. The no-show rate for the juvenile immigration court docket is about 46 percent. Amid the debate of what is causing the ongoing crush of child immigrants and how the government can stem the flow, two key lawmakers said President Barack Obama can take administrative action to relieve much of the crisis without waiting for what is likely to be a contentious and lengthy Congressional battle. At issue is a provision in a 2008 human trafficking law that puts the fate of these immigrants in the hands of immigration judges. The Obama administration has expressed some interest in asking Congress to change the law to give the administration
more leeway in dealing with the crisis. But Rep. Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday that wholesale changes by Congress may not be necessary and that Obama has the authority to return the children to their native countries. Obama “has tools in his toolbox” to deal with humanitarian issues and deter more children from coming to the U.S., Rogers said. “We can safely get them home,” Rogers said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He said, “And that’s where the president needs to start. So he needs to re-engage, get folks who are doing administrative work on the border. They need to make sure they send a very clear signal.”
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the author of the provision in the human trafficking law, said a change in regulations, not the law, could speed the children’s return. The law already allows HHS and the Homeland Security Department to write regulations to deal with “exceptional circumstances” that would allow officials to return the children more quickly to their home countries, Feinstein said Thursday at a hearing on a $3.7 billion emergency budget request from the White House to deal with the growing crisis on the border. Some of the money would go to help fund about 40 additional immigration judge teams. Federal immigration courts have a backlog of more than 375,000 cases.
Mayor: Cop killer said he was ‘going to be famous’ By JILL COLVIN Associated Press
JERSEY CITY, N.J. — A gunman who killed a rookie officer responding to a report of an armed robbery at a drugstore early Sunday never tried to rob the store and instead lay in wait for police, telling a witness to watch the news because he was “going to be famous,” authorities said. Lawrence Campbell shot Officer Melvin Santiago in the head shortly after he and his partner arrived at the 24-hour Walgreens at around 4 a.m., Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop said. Other officers returned fire at Campbell, killing him. Campbell, 27, of Jersey City, was one of three suspects wanted by police for a prior homicide, Fulop said. Fulop said Campbell was carrying a knife when he walked
into Walgreens and asked for directions to the greeting card aisle. He assaulted an armed security guard at the store and snatched his gun, Fulop said. According to Fulop, Campbell approached a witness and apologized for his conduct, then said to watch the news later because he was “going to be famous,” then waited for officers to arrive and shot Santiago with what police believe was the guard’s weapon. “Today was a horrible day for Jersey City,” Fulop said. Dozens of officers stood single file at the entrance of the hospital and saluted as Santiago’s flag-draped body was carried into an ambulance. A handful of younger officers consoled one another as they walked away. Santiago, 23, graduated from the police academy in December. Fulop was there when Santiago’s body arrived at the hospital.
As Santiago’s mother identified the body, Fulop said, she “just keep repeating the badge number and saying that it’s not possible.” Santiago is the first Jersey City officer killed in the line of duty since Detective Marc DiNardo died in July 2009 during a raid on an apartment while searching for suspects in a robbery. “It is a tragic situation when any officer is killed in the line of duty,” Fulop said. “Melvin was an officer who represented everything one would want to see in a police officer. I know the entire city’s thoughts and prayers are with the Santiago family during this difficult time and we mourn together.” Jean Belviso, who has been delivering newspapers for 10 years, was driving through the Walgreens parking lot when she said saw a man wearing burgundy sweatpants and a base-
ball cap walk out of the store. A police cruiser pulled up in front of Walgreens, and the suspect began shooting, the 61-year-old Belviso said. “We thought he was running, coming toward us,” said Belviso, who was riding along with a friend. “He kept on shooting.” Bullets flew through the cruiser’s windshield, 13 in all. The suspect was shot multiple times, and officers slapped handcuffs on him, Belviso said. Campbell’s body remained on the ground next to the bulletriddled cruiser for more than five hours after the shooting before it was placed in a coroner’s van and taken away. Markeisha Marshall, a spokeswoman for Walgreens, said the company was “deeply regretful” over the officer’s death and extended its sympathies to his family and friends. The store has round-the-clock
Small SC town rallies for fired gay police chief By JEFFREY COLLINS Associated Press
LATTA, S.C. — When openly gay police chief Crystal Moore was fired by a mayor who condemned her lifestyle as “questionable,” she feared her two decade career in law enforcement in this town was over. Then, this conservative, small town rebelled. The people of Latta, who voted overwhelmingly for a state amendment banning gay marriage eight years ago, turned against the mayor, stripped him of his powers and the town council rehired Moore. They said her dedication to the town mattered more than her sexual orientation. Residents remembered Moore’s civic spirit from as far back as 1989, when Hurricane Hugo tore through Latta. She was a high school student working part time as a police dispatcher, and helped cut downed tree limbs to clean up the debris. This February, when an ice storm crippled the town and left it without power for days, Moore piled her
officers in her SUV and checked on as many people as she could. “That’s Crystal. All she does is help people. I don’t get why he fired her. Maybe it’s the ignorant people who talk the loudest. She was the same great Crystal yesterday as she is today, and she’ll be the same person tomorrow,” said lifelong Latta resident Dottie Walters. Mayor Earl Bullard vehemently denied that he fired Moore because she was gay. Instead, he said she was dismissed for “sheer insubordination” during the three months he was her boss. Moore said she hadn’t received a single reprimand during her career until Bullard presented her with seven the day she was fired in April. Word of her termination spread fast in this tobacco hub of about 1,400 people, just off Interstate 95. About two dozen people gathered at her office in support on the day she was let go. The support for Moore grew when Town Councilman Jarett Taylor started secretly recording his conversations with the mayor, which is legal in South Carolina.
Taylor said he learned not to trust the mayor because he would tell him something, and later deny he ever said it. In a conversation released to reporters after Moore was fired, the mayor said: “I’d much rather have somebody who drank and drank too much taking care of my child than I had somebody whose lifestyle is questionable around children, because that ain’t the damn way it’s supposed to be.” Bullard, who has avoided reporters for much of the past three months, told The Associated Press that was him on the tape. He offered no apologies. “I don’t like the homosexual ways portrayed in front of children,” Bullard told AP by telephone Thursday. “You can’t explain to a 5-year-old why another child has two mommies or two daddies.” Since the story made headlines, Bullard said he had received a stack of hate mail that was “probably an inch-and-ahalf thick.” Within days of Moore’s termination, the town council passed a
vote of confidence in her. They also set up an election that would strip the mayor of his power and give them more authority, including the ability to hire the police chief. Moore, who played softball at Latta High School, walked up and down the streets for days before the vote, explaining her side of the story and calling for change. Last month, 69 percent of 475 voters approved of taking the mayor’s power away. Now essentially a figurehead, it’s not clear what he is going to do next. He ran unopposed in 2013 and still has three years left on his term. When Moore returned to work June 30, people honked their car horns and gave her thumbs up as she drove around in her police SUV, according to television reports. When an AP reporter rode around with her recently, nearly everyone waved as she drove by. “Crystal is a good chief and she loves this town,” said Taylor, the councilman. “It made me proud of my town to see everybody come out for her the way they did.”
armed security, Marshall noted. Police are also searching for another man who they believe was involved in the previous homicide with Campbell, Fulop said. They have been aggressively seeking Daniel Wilson for the last three days, Fulop said. The Jersey City Police Benevolent Association said in a statement that their hearts were heavy over Santiago’s death. “Patrolman Santiago knew the risks associated with this job, yet he put himself in front of danger in order to keep Jersey City safe,” the association said. “Words cannot adequately express our feelings about this senseless tragedy.” The officer’s stepfather, Alex McBride, said Santiago was “very proud” to be a police officer, following in the footsteps of his uncle. McBride said he had been in Santiago’s life for 14 years, noting that his stepson
had wanted to be a police officer since playing the “Call of Duty” video game. “Melvin was the best kid,” he said, choking up as he sat hunched over on a plastic crate in an alley outside the family’s apartment. “I watched him graduate from high school. He joined every sport, everything. He never did no harm to nobody. And he was full of life.” Gary Nahrwold, 24, recalled his friend Santiago first saying a decade ago that he wanted to become a police officer. Nahrwold also hopes to join the force and said he won’t be discouraged by Santiago’s slaying. “It just gives me more purpose to do it,” he said. “I’m not going to be deterred by some senseless crimes.” Associated Press writers Julio Cortez in Jersey City and Ashley Thomas in Philadelphia contributed to this report.

Thousands of Palestinians flee northern Gaza Strip By KARIN LAUB Associated Press
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Thousands of Palestinian residents of the northern Gaza Strip fled their homes on Sunday and sought safety in U.N. shelters, heeding warnings from the Israeli military about impending plans to bomb the area in the sixth day of an offensive against Hamas that has killed more than 160 people. The fighting showed no signs of slowing, despite international calls for a cease-fire and growing concerns about the mounting civilian death toll in Gaza. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and voiced U.S. “readiness” to help restore calm, while Egypt, a key mediator between Israel and Hamas, continued to work behind the scenes. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for an immediate cease-fire in a statement issued late Sunday by his spokesman’s office. Ban “strongly believes that it is in the interest of both sides that steps toward dangerous escalation be replaced with immediate measures to end the fighting, thus preventing further casualties and greater risks to regional peace and security,” it said. Ban condemned Hamas’ indiscriminate firing of rockets against Israeli civilian targets as “a violation of international law,” it said. He abhorred “the image of Israeli families hovering in shelters in fear of their children’s safety” and demanded “an immediate cessation of these indecent attacks.” At the same time, the U.N. chief is “deeply worried about the impact on Palestinian families of Israeli military action. Too many Palestinian civilians have been killed, and any Israeli ground offensive will undoubtedly increase the death toll and exacerbate civilian suffering in the Gaza Strip,” it said. Ban noted that despite the U.N. Security Council’s demand for a cease-fire, “the situation in and around the Gaza Strip appears to be worsening,” it said. Amid the diplomacy, Israel said it was pushing forward with preparations for a possible ground invasion of Gaza. Thousands of troops have massed along the border in recent days. “We don’t know when the operation will end,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday. “It might take a long time.” He said the military was prepared “for all possibilities.” Israel launched the offensive last Tuesday in what it said was a response to heavy rocket fire out of Hamas-controlled Gaza. The military says it has launched more than 1,300 airstrikes, while Palestinian militants have launched more than 800 rockets at Israel. The Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza says 166 people have been killed, including dozens of civilians. There have been no Israeli fatalities, though several people have been wounded, including a teenage boy who was seriously injured by rocket shrapnel Sunday. Early Sunday, the Israeli air force dropped leaflets around the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahia ordering people to evacuate their homes. Israel says much of the rocket fire has come from the area, and overnight Sunday, the military carried out a brief ground operation on what it said was a rocket-launching site that could not be struck from the air. Four Israeli soldiers were lightly wounded before returning to Israel. The U.N. refugee agency for Palestinians, UNRWA, said some 17,000 Palestinians had headed to special shelters set up in 20 United Nations schools in Gaza. “The fact that in a span of almost a few hours, 10,000 people sought refuge in these 15 schools is an indication to the difficult situation on the ground,” said Sami Mshasha, a UNRWA spokesman. Some raced by in pickup trucks, waving white flags. “Once we received the message, we felt scared to stay in our homes. We want to leave,” said

Palestinians give greetings in front of the damaged house of a cousin of Gaza police chief Taysir al-Batsh after it was hit by an Israeli missile strike in Gaza City, Sunday. The strike that hit the home and damaged a nearby mosque as evening prayers ended Saturday, killed at least 18 people, wounded 50 and left some people believed to be trapped under the rubble, said Palestinian Health Ministry official Ashraf al-Kidra.
one resident, Mohammed Abu Halemah. Shortly before nightfall, Israel carried out a series of airstrikes in the northern Gaza town of Beit Lahia. Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV station reported four airstrikes in a 10-minute span, and a large plume of black smoke could be seen over the area from the Israeli border. There were no immediate reports of casualties. Hamas, an Islamic militant group sworn to Israel’s destruction, has remained defiant, and it continued to fire rockets into Israel throughout the day. It urged people in northern Gaza to stay in their homes and has so far rejected proposals for a cease-fire as unsatisfactory. “They want us to put down our arms and leave the resistance,” said Moussa Abu Marzouk, a top Hamas official, on his Facebook page. “They started the battle, and we will stay on our land and fight to protect our future.” Despite Israeli claims that it has inflicted heavy damage on the group, Hamas says it is largely unscathed, and Palestinian medics say most of the dead have been civilians. The outbreak of violence follows the kidnappings and kill-
ings of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, the kidnapping and killing of a Palestinian teenager in an apparent revenge attack, and wide-ranging Israeli moves against Hamas militants and infrastructure in the West Bank. Hamas has demanded that hundreds of recently arrested activists be freed as part of a cease-fire. Many of the airstrikes have been on the homes of wanted Hamas militants, putting their families at risk. In an attack on Saturday, the target of one such airstrike, Gaza’s police chief, survived, while 18 members of his extended family were killed. Israel accuses Hamas of using Gaza’s civilians as human shields, putting people in the densely populated territory in danger. “The leadership of Hamas and the other organizations has chosen — at a time when they are using the population of Gaza as human shields — to hide underground, to flee abroad and to deliberately put civilians in the line of fire,” Netanyahu said. Despite Israel’s claims, the international community, including many of Israel’s allies, have begun to express concerns about the growing civilian death toll.
The Israeli military said that one of the rockets fired by Gaza militants Sunday night “hit an electricity infrastructure in Israel that supplied electricity to the Gaza Strip, causing a power outage to some 70,000 Gaza civilians.” In Vienna, Kerry spoke Sunday with Netanyahu and highlighted U.S. concerns about the “escalating tensions,” the State Department said. Kerry “described his engagement with leaders in the region to help to stop the rocket fire so calm can be restored and civilian casualties prevented, and underscored the United States’ readiness to facilitate a cessation of hostilities,” the State Department said. Egypt, meanwhile, said President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi spoke to the U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon. El-Sissi’s spokesman quoted Ban as praising Egyptian efforts to halt the fighting and affirming that “Egypt is the most capable party to effectively participate in reaching a calm between the two sides.” Netanyahu’s office declined comment on diplomatic efforts. Other countries were also involved. Germany’s foreign minister said he would head to the region on Monday, while French President Francois Hollande tried to rally Arab and Muslim leaders to push for a cease-fire. Hollande held telephone talks over the weekend with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki. Marzouki spokesman Adnane Mancer said the French and Tunisian presidents agreed that Marzouki would try to talk to Hamas leaders and urge a ceasefire, while Hollande would try to do the same with other parties. A French presidential official said Hollande was talking to Israeli, Palestinian and other Arab officials. On Sunday, Palestinians with foreign passports began leaving
Gaza through the Erez border crossing. Israel, which cooperated in the evacuation, said 800 Palestinians living in Gaza have passports from countries including Australia, Britain and the U.S. Rawan Mohanna, a 21-yearold chemistry major at the University of Texas, said she had arrived in Gaza with her family a month ago because her older sister was getting married to a Gazan. Mohanna, who lives in Dallas, said her family is now returning to the U.S. with mixed feelings because her newlywed sister and other relatives were staying behind. “It’s bittersweet that we get to leave but they are still there and
they can’t get out,” she said. On Sunday night, Israel’s military said rockets were fired at Israel from both Syria and Lebanon in separate incidents. There were no injuries or damage, but Israel fears militant groups along its northern frontier may try to open a second front. The rocket attacks were the second such barrage on Israel from its northern neighbors in recent days. The Israeli military said it retaliated by shooting toward the source of fire. In Egypt, security officials said they had foiled a new attempt to fire rockets at Israel by militants in the northern Sinai Peninsula which borders Israel.
Around the World Russian Foreign Ministry: 1 killed, 2 injured by Ukrainian shell near border MOSCOW — Russia’s foreign ministry said Sunday that a Ukrainian shell hit a Russian border town, killing one person and seriously injuring two others. Ukraine denied firing a shell into Russian territory. President Vladimir Putin expressed “grave concern” over the incident, Russian news agencies quoted his spokesman as saying. A statement from Russia’s foreign ministry labeled the event a “provocation,” and warned of the possibility of “irreversible consequences, the responsibility for which lies on the Ukrainian side.” Russia said the shell hit the courtyard of a residential building in the Russian town of Donetsk — near the Ukrainian city of the same name that has become a rebel stronghold — early on Sunday. Ukraine’s restless east has been mired in a pro-Russian separatist insurgency against the Kiev government. Ukrainian officials denied that any Ukrainian shells had fallen on Russian territory. Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, was quoted by Interfax Ukraine as saying that Ukrainian forces “do not fire on the territory of a neighboring country. They do not fire on residential areas.” He placed blame for the attack on the rebels themselves. Russia has made repeated claims that settlements along its porous border with Ukraine — which the West and Kiev say is a key supply route for the rebels — have been hit by Ukrainian fire, but no deaths have been previously reported. – The Associated Press C

responding missed a sign by the door indicating that the room was on fire. “I’ve never done anything like this before,” Sylvester said. “I think it’s great, it’s too bad they don’t have more volunteers.” Another team forgot to mark their doors correctly, resulting in the rooms needing to be searched again. “Thirty hours isn’t nearly enough time to learn everything you need,” said Kenai Peninsula Borough Office of Emergency Management Program Coordinator Dan Nelson. Still, Nelson said the students did well despite the short time they’d had to learn emergency response skills. The dozen trainees were joined by current CERT trained members who volunteered to help with the day’s event — they stayed largely hands-off however, forcing the trainees to work through the scenario without external help. Victims scattered throughout the building had a variety of injuries, several needed to be transported by groups of trainee, often in blankets or wheeled on carts and office chairs. The building was hot and
many of the CERT trainees and volunteers were sweating profusely during the drill. Lizz Giver, of Soldotna, stopped to grab water bottles for her team members as they stopped to figure out how to move the four victims they found in classrooms on the second floor of the building. Giver gathered blankets and the group moved upstairs to gather the blankets. “My friend told me about (the training) and it just seemed like a good way to be prepared, both for the community and in your personal life,” Giver said. The petite blonde was the decisive member of her team, often reminding them of their goal, procedures and how the group should handle each situation. Group observer Trisha Davis, a longtime Red Cross volunteer who ran the organization’s emergency shelter during the Funny River Horse Trail wildfire, said she saw merit in Giver’s ability to lead.“She has potential to be a (heck) of a good leader,” Davis said. Davis has been a member of the Red Cross since 2001 and joined CERT when she moved to the Kenai Peninsula. “I believe in taking care of your community,” she said. “It’s hard to get people to volunteer, everyone comes out when there’s a disaster.

. . . E-cigs Continued from page A-1
“It didn’t seem appropriate to be using e-cigarettes in the libraries considering that the health effects seemed to be pretty real. We went forward from there.” He worked with city attorney Amy Mead for about two months until the ordinance was adopted, he said. There are many opinions on the health effects of e-cigarettes, which are filled with a liquid combination of propylene glycol, water, flavoring, nicotine, and other chemicals that is then heated, vaporized and inhaled. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is not yet regulating the contents of e-cigarettes. The administration is currently taking public comment on the issue, however. Barr pointed out that in October of last year, 41 of 50 states’ attorneys general — including Alaska’s — signed a letter to the FDA entreating it to begin regulating e-cigarettes. “They’re marketed as being safe products that can be used in public unlike tobacco,” he said. “That’s unfortunately not true.” Bob Urata, a physician with Valley Medical Care, spoke in favor of the ordinance during the public comment period at the June 30 Assembly meeting, according to meeting minutes. He called e-cigarettes “the new battle” now that lung cancer prevalence in Alaska is dropping. Urata said that although the FDA is still researching it, the aerosol inhaled and exhaled from e-cigarettes is “not benign” even if it isn’t smoke, and contains toxins and carcinogens. If a product includes nicotine and is exhaled, it doesn’t belong in a public building, he said. Mace said he knows that ecigarettes aren’t healthy, but he feels so much better than he did when he was smoking a pack a day. He started using an e-cigarette about a year ago, and, a few months ago, stopped smoking cigarettes entirely. “The last four months I stopped buying them, I stopped bumming them from friends,”
he said. “An alternative to help me quit smoking is why I bought (an e-cigarette).” He said he’s read article after article about the effects of e-cigarette use. It’s hard to say what’s fact and what isn’t, but, regardless, he doesn’t plan to be a lifetime user. “Ultimately, I do want to quit smoking electronic cigarettes as well,” he said. Mace said he’s disappointed he’ll no longer be able to smoke inside at bars. That’s the only public, indoor place he’d ever used it because “there’s a certain etiquette “ to e-cigarette use, he said. “I don’t walk around at Fred Meyer using it,” he said. “I saw a guy in Wells Fargo setting up a new account, ... puffing away. Don’t be disrespectful — don’t be in the movie theater, don’t be in the store.” Mace’s smoking habit started years ago while drinking
nai Peninsula communities. “They’re really energetic to teach,” he said. Zion Alioto, 14, took a break from carrying victims to watch the simulated chaos unfold around him. “I wanted to help the community out if there was a disaster,” he said. “I never really expected to carry people on a blanket. It feels pretty good to go around and save people.” Reach Rashah McChesney at firstname.lastname@example.org “What’s amazing about it is as I work these projects and try and do the educational outreach part, the Kodiak Island Borough there was so far ahead in thinking about how it wanted students to be involved with that kind of research and science and technology,” he added. For McDonald, earthquake detection is part of the science, technology, engineering, and
with friends at bars, and the temptation is still very real, he said. Keeping his distance from other smokers has helped him stay cigarette-free. The appeal of the e-cigarette is “I don’t have to be outside, I don’t have to be around it, the temptation’s not there,” he said. “But what I’m going to do is just go outside and have my electronic cigarette.” Barr said he’s pleased the ordinance passed, and library patrons will be, too. There isn’t enough e-cigarette use in the library to merit putting up signs, he said, but anyone who breaks the new rules will be notified. The ordinance was adopted without much discussion by the Assembly, which voted unanimously in favor. “This was a pretty easy one,” Barr said. “The assembly was interested in adding this in, and did so.”
math curriculum that educators believe is so vital to student real-world preparedness. McDonald reports that Kodiak schools add another component to STEM — the arts — changing the acronym to “STEAM.” He added that this artistic component gels very nicely with the work that students will be doing on the earthquake prediction system.

Twins’ Pierren throws no-hitter vs. East Staff report
Dallas Pierren threw a no-hitter for the American Legion Twins on Sunday in the first game of a doubleheader against East in Anchorage. The Twins won the first game — the league contest — 12-0 in a seveninning game shortened to five innings due to the mercy rule. “He was in the zone today,” Twins head coach Hector Rivera said. “Everything was working for him.” The game was important because the Twins are chasing a spot in the American Legion state tournament. The top three teams in the National
Division make state. The Twins are now tied for third in the National Division with Bartlett, with both having 8-5 records. If the Twins don’t make the top three in the division, they can still get into state by claiming one of the two spots that go to the remaining teams with the best records. The Twins have five league games remaining. “He knew how important this game was with what we are facing the rest of the week,” Rivera said of Pierren. “He showed up and took care of business.” Lance Coz, the longtime general manager for the Twins, said this was
the first no-hitter for the local nine since Mike Smith in the late 1990s. Coz said there have been less than five no-hitters in the squad’s history. Pierren, who needed just 65 pitches to get through five innings, nearly had a perfect game. His only blemish was a two-out walk in the third inning. Pierren struck out seven, and got four outs on ground balls and four outs on fly balls. “His curveball was really nasty and his fastball was on,” Rivera said. “He was dominating with his fastball, and his curveball was getting everybody. He fooled everybody.”
Rivera said it still took a team effort to top East, which went with its top pitcher. The Twins had nine hits, with Josh Darrow going 2 for 3, Tommy Bowe going 2 for 4, and Justin Wisnewski going 2 for 3. The Twins were up 6-0 heading into the fifth inning, but scored six runs in that frame, taking advantage of five walks and a hit by pitch. The Twins lost the second game — the nonleague contest — 9-7 in seven innings. “Everybody got a chance to play,” Rivera said. “I think we saw some
good things, and others that were not that good. “Overall, it was a good day.” Calvin Hills got the start and yielded six runs — three earned — in 2 2-3 innings. JJ Sonnen gave up an earned run in 3 1-3 innings, while Darrow gave up two unearned runs in one inning. At the plate, Darrow was 1 for 3, Justice Miller was 2 for 4, Klayton Justice was 2 for 3, and Cody Quelland was 1 for 3. The Twins host a 12:30 p.m. doubleheader against West on Thursday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai.
Germany beats Argentina to nab World Cup MATTIAS KAREN AP Sports Writer
RIO DE JANEIRO — Mario Goetze produced the piece of individual skill that Lionel Messi couldn’t muster. With two quick, deft touches, Goetze ended Germany’s 24-year wait for another World Cup title with an extratime winner against Argentina on Sunday — denying Messi the one title he needs to forever take his place among the game’s all-time greats.
It was the moment of brilliance that ensured Germany’s 1-0 victory in a tight and tense final. Goetze, who wasn’t born when West Germany beat Argentina in the 1990 final, controlled a cross with his chest in the 113th minute and in one fluid motion volleyed the ball past goalkeeper Sergio Romero and inside the far post from five yards out. It delivered Germany its fourth World Cup title, equal second with Italy on the list of
Bucs nip Oilers in 11th inning By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion
It’s tempting to say the Peninsula Oilers lost 3-1 to the Anchorage Bucs in 11 innings Sunday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai due to bad luck. The deciding hit in the 11th inning was a two-out, bloop double down the left-field line by Tyler Ware that just eluded the glove of Jordan Sanford and scored the two winning runs. But Oilers head coach Kyle Richardson, whose team has now lost eight straight to fall to 7-14 in the Alaska Baseball League, knows better than to blame luck. “We’re struggling to find guys that can score a guy,” Richardson said. “It doesn’t even need to be a hit. It can be a sacrifice fly, a ground ball, anything.” The story of the game for the two squads chasing the redhot Alaska Goldpanners in the American League was missed opportunities. The Bucs were 3 for 14 with runners in scoring position, while the Oilers were 1 for 10. Both squads know they will have to do better to keep pace with the Goldpanners, who swept a doubleheader from the Anchorage Glacier Pilots on Sunday for their ninth-straight victory. The Panners lead the American League at 13-5, while the Bucs are a half game back at 15-8 and the Oilers are 7 1-2 games back. Bucs head coach Tony Cappuccilli wasn’t about to apologize for winning on a blooper. “I’ll take it every day,” he said. “Both of these teams aren’t playing as well as they would like to right now in terms of wins and losses, but both teams fought very hard.” Pitching and defense was there for both teams Sunday. The Oilers let in 10.2 runs per game on their recently completed, six-game road trip, but Richardson said that was an aberration because five of those games were in Fairbanks. “Everybody knows Fairbanks is an offensive yard,” Richardson said. “It’s hard to pitch there. The fences are close, the wind blows out all the time, and the turf is hard and fast. “I’m not worried about the pitching. I’m worried about the offense.” Both teams got solid starts. Bret Marks worked the first 7 1-3 innings for the Bucs, giving up seven hits and a run while walking one and striking out

10. Cappuccilli said Marks is the first starter to work into the eighth for the Bucs this season. “He was awesome,” Cappuccilli said. “That was the best start of the year by Bret. He mixed speeds and threw strikes. When he has struggled in the past, he has had some command issues.” Dallas DeVrieze, who Richardson said has been the team’s best starter this year, pitched the first seven innings for the Oilers, yielding six hits and a run while walking one and striking out six. Both bullpens also performed. Alex Godzak and winner Devon Stewart kept the Oilers scoreless over the final 3 2-3 innings, while Chad Rieser and Nolan Sheridan kept the Bucs off the board late. The bloop hit gave Cody Richey the loss. Both teams also played good defense. The Bucs made one error, turned a game-ending double play and caught Jake Sandlin trying to stretch a double into a triple in the seventh. For the Oilers, Josh Rose threw out Evan Powell when he tried to score on Grant Palmer’s single in the sixth. The Oilers also turned double plays to get out of jams in the fourth and fifth innings, picked a runner off and caught a runner stealing. The one clutch hit in the game by the Oilers came from Mylz Jones. He doubled with one out in the eighth to score Alex Rubanowitz and tie the game at 1. But as was the case all day, the bottom of the order failed to produce and the rally was ended. The top four in the order — Sandlin with three hits, Sanford with two hits, Rubanowitz with a hit and Jones with three hits — did all the damage, while the bottom five were a combined 0 for 22. Richardson said his squad simply needs to perform better during scoring opportunities. See OILERS, page A-9
all-time champions and just behind Brazil’s five. “It’s an unbelievable feeling. I don’t know how to describe it. You just shoot that goal in, you don’t really know what’s happening,” Goetze said. “And then at the end of the match, having a party with the team, the whole country ... it is for us, a dream come true.” At the final whistle, Germany players fell into a pile in a mid-pitch celebration. Messi walked past them with his
hands on his hips — still in the shadow of his compatriot Diego Maradona, who led his country to the 1986 title. The 22-year-old Goetze went on as a substitute for Miroslav Klose near the end of regulation time and his fresh legs made the difference. Andre Schuerrle broke down the left flank, sending his cross into the area, and the Bayern Munich midfielder did the rest with a clinical finish. The goal echoed that of Andres Iniesta four years ago,
when the midfielder scored in similar fashion but from the other side of the area to give Spain a 1-0 extra-time win over the Netherlands. It went entirely to script, according to Germany coach Joachim Loew. “I said to Mario Goetze, ‘OK, show to the world that you’re better than Messi and you can decide the World Cup. You have all the possibilities to do that,’” Loew said. “I had a good feeling with him.” Germany became the first
European team to win a World Cup in the Americas, and the victory ends a string of near misses since winning its last major title at the 1996 European Championship. The team lost the 2002 World Cup final to Brazil, the Euro 2008 final to Spain and was eliminated in the semifinals in both 2006 and 2010. Argentina had not been back in the final since that 1990 loss, and has now been beaten by Germany in the last three World Cups.

Mets notch sweep of Marlins By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Jacob deGrom had a tiebreaking single and again shut down the Marlins with seven impressive innings, David Wright doubled twice and drove in two runs, and the New York Mets completed a three-game sweep of Miami with a 9-1 victory on Sunday. Wright, Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares each had RBI doubles, and Chris Young added a sacrifice fly for New York in its eighth win on a 10-game homestand heading into the All-Star break.

Sports Briefs Martin wins Women’s British Open SOUTHPORT, England — Mo Martin hit the best shot of her life, and it made her a major champion in the Women’s British Open. From the middle of the fairway on the par-5 18th hole at Royal Birkdale on Sunday, Martin ripped a 3-wood that she first thought was too short, and then worried might be too long. It turned out to be close to perfect. The ball hit the middle of the pin and settled 6 feet away for an eagle. An hour later, that turned out to be the winning shot for the 31-year-old American when Inbee Park and Shanshan Feng could not stay under par. Martin is among the shortest hitters in the game, and won with an eagle — her first of the year. It took her six years just to reach the LPGA Tour, and her first victory in her 64th tournament came in a major championship. She closed with an even-par 72 on a day so tough that no one broke par. Martin was the only player to break par for the championship, finishing at 1-under 287 for a one-shot victory over Feng and Suzann Pettersen.
Tonys have reason to celebrate at Tour MULHOUSE, France — On a day local Roman Catholics were celebrating the feast of Saint Anthony, two other Tonys had their own reason to celebrate in the Tour de France. Germany’s Tony Martin took the stage win Sunday, and France’s Tony Gallopin took the yellow jersey during an upand-down Stage 9 in the eastern Vosges mountains. Martin, a three-time world champion known more for timetrial dominance, showed that he could climb too; Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali, who has been wearing the leader’s yellow jersey, didn’t lay a hard enough chase of Gallopin to keep it. French media — delighted to see the country’s first yellow jersey holder since Thomas Voeckler wore it in 2011 — reveled in the fact that Gallopin will lead France’s most beloved race on the Bastille Day holiday Monday. The 29-year-old German, meanwhile, said his stage victory might have been an “omen” for Germany’s World Cup ambitions against Argentina — which it turned out to be. Gallopin, of the Lotto Belisol team, said he’d been plotting a move for the yellow jersey since Stage 5 — when he positioned himself for a challenge because Nibali was unlikely to want to hold it all the way to Paris on July 27, when the race ends.

Keselowski dominates New Hampshire DAN GELSTON AP Sports Writer
LOUDON, N.H. — Brad Keselowski hopped out of his car and grabbed an oversized broom to give a playful sweep of all the confetti already collected around his Ford. He then truly savored his victory, snagging a New England lobster and raising it in triumph. Keselowski survived without a cut, splinter or pinch. He didn’t even fumble his cham-
pionship crustacean. For once, his victory celebration was as perfect as his performance on the track. He completed a flawless weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and won Sunday under a green-white checkered finish. Keselowski followed up Saturday’s Nationwide Series victory with his first Sprint Cup win at New Hampshire, dominating in the No. 2 Ford for his third victory of the season.
The 2012 Sprint Cup champion is now tied with Jimmie Johnson for the series lead in wins. “This was just such a phenomenal weekend and these don’t happen that often,” he said. Keselowski had been in a slump with, of all things, his Victory Lane fun. He needed four stitches to close a wound he received during his Victory Lane celebration in the Sprint Cup race at Kentucky. He tried to open the
bottle of champagne by hitting it against a podium, and the bottle broke and cut his hand. Keselowski dropped the American flag out of his No. 22 Ford on Saturday and it was retrieved by an official to let the frivolity continue. He joked he brought Kevlarreinforced gloves that were touted as cut-proof. Good thing. The New Hampshire winner traditionally receives a live lobster in Victory Lane.
