TAPS moves 17 billionth barrel





JUNEAU (AP) — The trans-Alaska pipeline has moved its 17 billionth barrel of oil. The operator of the 37-year-old pipeline, Alyeska Pipeline Service Co., announced the milestone Monday. It has been nearly five years since the 16 billionth barrel flowed down the line, in October 2009. The 800-mile pipeline is the economic lifeblood of the state, which relies heavily on oil revenues to run. The pipeline runs from the prodigious North Slope to Valdez, from where tankers are shipped. Alyeska says the pipeline has generated about $180 billion in state revenue. Oil flowing through the line has been on a downward trend since reaching a peak of 2.1 million barrels a day in the late 1980s.

The consortium planning the big North Slope gas pipeline and liquefied natural gas export project has taken another big step. An application was filed Friday for the U.S. Department of Energy export permit for the project. North Slope producers, TransCanada Corp. and the state of Alaska asked for permission to export up to 20 million metric tons yearly of liquefied natural gas, or LNG, from Alaska, the group announced in a press release. Larry Persily, federal Alaska gas coordinator in the U.S. Department of the Interior, has reviewed the 212-page filing and said the consortium has purchased about half the property it needs for a large LNG plant at Nikiski, or about 200 acres. The filing application is for permission for exports over a period of 30 years to countries that have existing free trade agreements with the U.S., as well as to non-free trade agreement countries, according to the announcement, which was released Monday. “This is a significant milestone for the Alaska LNG project and demonstrates continued progress toward developing Alaska’s resources,” said Steve Butt, senior project manager. “Filing of an export application is a critical step in commercializing North Slope natural gas.” Butt said in an interview earlier that the project specifications of exporting 15 million to 18 million tons per year haven’t

Some residents wary of road work North Kenai project to bring road up to borough standards By KAYLEE OSOWSKI Peninsula Clarion

This construction season, Rhines, Fishermans and Capryl roads in North Kenai made it to the top of the Kenai Peninsula Borough’s list for road improvements. However, property owners on Rhines Road are concerned about the current construction

and its potential impacts. Rhines Road resident George Kucinic said the project doesn’t make sense to anyone in the neighborhood. “I don’t think it will do anything better for us,” he said. “I think it will make it more miserable for us.” Henry Knackstedt, borough road services area engineer, met with about one dozen

Rhines Road residents in the sunshine Thursday to discuss the project, which will bring the road up to borough standards. That includes widening the road, shallow ditching on both sides and raising the road 1 foot. The project has been on the borough’s to-do list prior to 2011, he said. He said all the construction is being done within the bor-

Busy weekend sees JBER soldier attacked by bear increase in accidents By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion

With the increase of motorists on land and water across the central Kenai Peninsula this weekend, first responders saw a steady rise in accidents. From Friday to Sunday, Alaska State Troopers responded to 11 motor vehicle accidents across the Kenai Peninsula, said trooper spokesperson Megan Peters. Central Emergency Services aided in five accidents with two people transported to Central Peninsula Hospital, said Health and Safety Officer Brad Nelson. Kenai Police Chief Gus Sandahl said his officers were dispatched to four accidents, including one on the

water and another involving an all-terrain vehicle. Another boat collision in front of The Pillars Boat Launch was referred to the Alaska State Parks, he said. None of the accidents resulted in any life-threatening injuries, Nelson said. On Sunday CES and Soldotna Police responded to a twocar collision at the Kalifornsky Beach Road and Sterling Highway intersection at about 1:30 p.m. Nelson said one person was transported to the hospital. Later in the day, another twovehicle accident at Mile 91.5 of the Sterling Highway involved a red sedan and van. One person was transported to the hospital, Nelson said. See BUSY, page A-7

By RACHEL D’ORO Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — An Alaska Army National Guard soldier was wearing a combat helmet and other protective gear when he was attacked by a bear while participating in a training exercise at a military base, officials said Monday. Sgt. Lucas Wendeborn of Valdez is being treated for puncture wounds and lacerations after the mauling Sunday at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson. The female brown bear was defending her two young cubs, base officials said. Wendeborn’s injuries are not life-threatening, National Guard spokeswoman Maj. Candis Olmstead said. WenC


deborn, 26, was not armed and had no ammunition. But he was well-shielded by the helmet, load-bearing equipment and a reflective safety vest with ammunition patches. “The gear that was over him, it probably had some impact on protecting him some,” Olmstead said. Wendeborn was participating in a navigation exercise that involves giving soldiers compasses and maps and timing them as they make their way alone to hidden locations on a course. In thick woods, Wendeborn moved around a tree and mere yards away the bear popped out of the brush. The two made eye contact. “It appeared that he and the

bear startled each other,” Olmstead said. The soldier immediately thought of a bear-safety briefing he had earlier that day and dropped to the ground. The bear attacked, picking him up by the hip and throwing him. The bear swatted and bit at him a few times before leaving him alone after about 30 seconds. The soldier waited between 15 and 30 seconds and then blew a safety whistle, alerting medics on the course, Olmstead said. The medics began to stabilize Wendeborn, who sustained puncture wounds in areas including under his left shoulder blade and right rib cage, as well as lacerations to See BEAR, page A-7

Clarion Question Results The Clarion question for last week was:

Should the City of Kenai regulate electronic cigarettes in restaurants and healthcare facilities the same as smoking tobacco? The following selected comments were submitted by our readers:

Results are not scientific

“I don’t think going backwards with a smoking ban to allow e-cigs is prudent. Waiting for research doesn’t mean that during that entire time, people aren’t ingesting toxins. Yes, there are harmful things rolling across the road, and in the foods we eat, but smoking is a good thing to remove from environments. Splitting hairs on e-cigarettes is just trying to get smokers a socially accepted alternative “Someone made the comment that e-cigs send out a which isn’t actually a healthy alternative in any case. The bad image so they should be banned. So do certain tat- cigarette industry as a whole, over time, has been untruthtoos or bumper stickers, or hair color … shall we ban them ful about health risks so why would this be any different? too?” Forget studies, smoking ban is smoking ban.” “If everything that released toxins into the air is to be banned from public usage then let’s ban autos as they release toxins into the air to a greater degree. E-cigs do not pollute. Ban gum chewing also — nasty habit, and all that used gum discarded on the ground to be stepped on.”

Globe stays on hot streak in June By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science Writer

WASHINGTON — The globe is on a hot streak, setting a heat record in June. That’s after the world broke a record in May. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced Monday that last month’s average global temperature was 61.2 degrees, which is 1.3 degrees higher than the 20th century average. It beat 2010’s old record by one-twentieth of

a degree. While one-twentieth of a degree doesn’t sound like much, in temperature records it’s like winning a horse race by several lengths, said NOAA climate monitoring chief Derek Arndt. And that’s only part of it. The world’s oceans not only broke a monthly heat record at 62.7 degrees, but it was the hottest the oceans have been on record no matter what the month, Arndt said. “We are living in the ste-

roid era of the climate system,” Arndt said. Arndt said both the June and May records were driven by unusually hot oceans, especially the Pacific and Indian oceans. Heat records in June broke on every continent but Antarctica, especially in New Zealand, northern South America, Greenland, central Africa and southern Asia. The United States had only its 33rd hottest June. All 12 of the world’s monthly heat records have been set after 1997, more than half in the last decade. All the global cold monthly records were set before 1917. And with a likely El Nino this year — the warming of the tropical Pacific which influenc-

es the world’s weather and increases global temperatures — it is starting to look like another extra warm year, said University of Arizona climate scientist Jonathan Overpeck. The first six months of the year are the third warmest first six months on record, coming behind 2010 and 1998, according to NOAA. Global temperature records go back to 1880 and this is the 352nd hotter than average month in a row. “This is what global warming looks like,” Overpeck said in an email. “Not record hot everywhere all the time, but certainly a reflection that the odds of record hot are going up everywhere around the planet.”

Numerous cars vandalized in Anchorage ANCHORAGE (AP) — Numerous vehicles have been vandalized and burglarized at a south Anchorage apartment complex. KTUU reports 12 cars were spray-painted over the weekend at the complex, located near Dowling Road’s intersection with the New Seward Highway. Cars also had seats slashed and windshield wipers stolen. The string of burglary and vandalism has been occurring for almost three weeks to cars parked at the complex. Police spokeswoman Anita Shell says that in any vandalism situation, it’s important for people not to touch any evidence left behind so fingerprints can be processed.

Obituaries Tommie Maurine Blackwell Sikora Tommie Maurine Blackwell Sikora, 88, passed away Saturday, July 19, 2014 in Keller, Texas. She was born October 19, 1926 in Wingate, Texas to George Washington Blackwell and Mary Elizabeth Owens. She married Roy E. Brown Jr. September 1, 1947 in San Angelo, Texas and had four children. After her husband’s death in 1984, she later married Robert W. Sikora in Kenai. Her son Mark D. Brown also preceded her in death. Tommie is survived by children, Gloria A. Talley and husband Gene of Southlake, Texas, Bobbie K. Farnsworth and husband Mark of Nikiski, and Patricia E. Lighter of Anaheim, California; grandchildren, Gina Talley of Austin, Texas, Georgette Poole and husband Michael of North Richland Hills, Texas, Gillian Talley of Dallas and Michael Farnsworth and wife Jolene of Anchorage; and great-grandchild, Lila Poole. After growing up among a large farming family in rural Wingate and living for many years in San Angelo, she and her husband with their school age children embarked on an adventure to the land of the Midnight Sun in the late 1960s where she continued her legal secretary work and raised her youngest children. Tommie is the youngest and the last of her siblings, having lost her last sister less than a month ago. Coming from such a close family of sisters and brothers, eleven in all, family reunions were always lively, fun and well-attended events. In her retirement years, she enjoyed time with her grandchildren and travels throughout much of the world on tours and cruises with her second husband. They enjoyed the seasons by following the sun with homes in Alaska, Arizona and Hawaii. Following his death, she returned back home to Texas in the late 1990s. A Baptist by faith, she raised her children in a gentle and loving way. Never meeting a stranger, she enjoyed cooking and entertaining others, always fun and generous to her family and friends. Her family extends their heartfelt appreciation to all of the Keller Oaks Nursing Home and Freedom Hospice staff for their care and compassion. Visitation will be at Johnson’s Funeral Home in San Angelo, Texas from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, July 23 and 11 a.m. to noon Thursday, July 24. Graveside services will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursday at the Fairmount Cemetery in San Angelo.

USCG: 2 medevacs in Southeast Juneau Empire staff report

JUNEAU — U.S. Coast Guard crews in Sitka and Ketchikan performed two medevacs from two separate vessels in Southeast Alaska Sunday, according to a news release from the USCG Monday. Coast Guard Station Ketchikan 47-foot Motor Life Boat crewmembers medevaced an injured mariner from a fishing vessel near Kendrick Bay and an Air Station Sitka Mh-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew medevaced an ailing passenger from a cruise ship near Zarembo Is-

land, the release stated. According to the report, the first case began when Coast Guard Sector Juneau watchstanders received a report that a 21-year-old female aboard the fishing vessel Haida Chief suffered a head injury when a line parted. The crew administered first aid and requested medical assistance. In addition, the command center watchstanders directed the launch of a 47-foot Motor Life Boat from Station Ketchikan to rendezvous with the fishing vessel near Kendrick Bay,

on the south end of Prince of Wales Island. The life boat crew arrived on scene, brought the injured crewmember aboard and transported her safely back to emergency medical personnel in Ketchikan. The second case began when Coast Guard 17th District command center watchstanders received a medevac request from the crew of the cruise ship Carnival Solstice. The ship’s crew reported that a 71-year-old male passenger was suffering from stroke-like symptoms, the

release stated. Command center watchstanders directed the launch of an Air Station Sitka MH60 Jayhawk helicopter crew. The helicopter crew arrived on scene, safely hoisted the ailing passenger and transported him to emergency medical personnel in Juneau. Weather during the fishing vessel medevac was reported as 1-foot seas and 7 mph winds. Weather during the cruise ship medevac was reported as 3-foot seas and 10 mph winds.

NASA facility renamed for Armstrong By MALCOLM RITTER AP Science Writer

NASA honored one of its most famous astronauts Monday by renaming a historic building at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It now bears the name of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon when the Apollo 11 mission landed there 45 years ago. Armstrong, who died in 2012, was remembered at a ceremony as not only an astronaut, but also as an aerospace engineer, a test pilot and university professor. Michael Collins, who orbited the moon as Armstrong took his historic steps on July 20, 1969, said he had a “powerful combination of curiosity and intelligence” along with an

intuitive grasp of the complexities of flight machinery. “Neil probably liked hangars better than office buildings, but he was certainly good in either venue,” Collins said. NASA renamed the Operations and Checkout building, also known as the O&C, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been the last stop for astronauts before their flights since 1965. It was also used to test and process Apollo spacecraft. Currently, it’s where the Orion spacecraft is being assembled to send astronauts to an asteroid and later to Mars. The renaming ceremony included remarks by Apollo 11 crew member Buzz Aldrin and backup mission commander Jim Lovell. Armstrong’s sons Rick and Mark also spoke.

What Others Say

Crackdown on synthetic drugs will help combat substance abuse The “War on Drugs” has come in for

a fair amount of derision in the years since President Nixon first brought up the phrase back in 1971. Opponents of a strong government law enforcement effort against drug abuse say the “war” has been a costly flop. But government clearly has a role in reducing drug abuse, as demonstrated by the ever-evolving ways in which illegal drugs are concocted and marketed. As drug-makers evolve, so too must the law. That is why the bill signed this week by Gov. Sean Parnell is a necessary additional weapon in the war that will, in all likelihood, never end. The new law, introduced in the Legislature as Senate Bill 173 by Sen. Kevin Meyer, R-Anchorage, takes aim primarily at the packaging of synthetic drugs. What are these synthetic drugs? Synthetic marijuana, for example, is often called “spice” and is sold in retail stores as herbal incense or potpourri and often labeled as “Not for human consumption” — though, of course, the person buying the product fully intends to smoke it to get high. Spice is made from dried and shredded plant material to which mindaltering chemicals are added, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. It is sold under such labels as K2, fake weed, Yucatan Fire, Skunk and Moon Rocks, the agency says. Spice is popular among young people, which is more reason for concern. “Of the illicit drugs most used by high-school seniors, they are second only to marijuana. They are more popular among boys than girls — in 2012, nearly twice as many male 12th graders reported past-year use of synthetic marijuana as females in the same age group,” the agency says. “Easy access and the misperception that spice products are ‘natural’ and therefore harmless have likely contributed to their popularity.” There’s also synthetic cocaine, known as “bath salts.” This dangerous drug consists of the man-made chemicals methylenedioxypyrovalerone, mephedrone and methylone. The synthetics are here in Alaska — and in Fairbanks, according to authorities. The new law has a lengthy description of what constitutes an illicit synthetic drug. Among the tell-tale signs, according to the law: a label that is false or misleading; a label that suggests the user will achieve “euphoria, a hallucination, mood enhancement, relaxation, stimulation or another effect on the body”; a label that does not specify the identity of the substances contained in the product and does not list the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer or distributor. It’s unfortunate, of course, that the law is needed at all. But, based on reports of the effectiveness of similar laws elsewhere, we can expect a positive outcome in Alaska. — Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, July 18

No more aid to the PA

The anti-Semitic “tradition” of blaming Jews for the world’s problems mostly took a temporary back seat in light of the indiscriminate rocket attacks on Israel by the terrorist group Hamas. Major newspaper editorials condemned Hamas, but their condemnation was hedged by calls for “restraint” on “both sides” and “proportionality” in Israel’s response to the attacks. There is little or no mention of Hamas’ directive to ignore Israel’s warning to leave homes in areas where the rockets have been placed among civilians. The Hamas strategy is to parade the bodies of the dead before TV cameras to demonstrate Israel’s “cruelty” and uncaring attitude toward innocent lives. Still, there was room for the predictable screeds against Israel. The New York Times gave space on its op-ed page to Nathan Thrall, a senior analyst at the International Crisis Group covering Gaza, Israel, Jordan and the West Bank. Thrall writes, “Israel and much of the international community placed a prohibitive set of obstacles in the way of the Palestinian ‘national consensus’ government that was formed in early June.” The Times of Israel reported on a proPalestinian demonstration in Berlin — yes, Berlin — during which crowds reportedly chanted “Jew, Jew, cowardly pig, come on out and fight.” They might as well have chanted “Sieg heil.” Hamas is a designated terrorist organization that is religiously and politically committed to the eradication of Israel. That it formed a coalition with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its supposedly “moderate” leader, Mahmoud Abbas, doesn’t

make Hamas more moderate; it underscores the true ideology of the PA. The Guardian newspaper printed a column by associate editor Seumas Milne, the gist of which was, “The idea that Israel Cal Thomas is defending itself from unprovoked attacks from outside its borders is an absurdity.” Occupied people, like the Palestinians of Gaza, says Thrall, “...have the right to resist, by force if they choose.” Yes, Gaza is occupied, but by Hamas, not Israel, which withdrew in 2005 and created a vacuum Hamas predictably filled. Writing in The Jerusalem Post, Caroline Glick notes the objectives of Hamas, which has vowed never to make peace with Israel: “In the midst of Operation Protective Edge, Hamas released a music video in Hebrew calling for the Palestinians to bomb Israel and kill all Israelis. ‘Raze it (Israel) to the ground, exterminate the cockroaches’ nest, and banish all the Zionists,’ the lyrics read.” While the United States has limited options in the region, it does have one that could help undermine Hamas and free Gaza from its real occupiers. The U.S. should eliminate financial aid to the Palestinian Authority, which has been provided in the false hope that “moderation” would prevail over terrorism. According to the Congressional Research Service, “Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip

in the mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed approximately $5 billion in bilateral assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the largest per capita recipients of international foreign aid.” What have we gotten for it? A bill sponsored by Sen. Rand Paul (RKY) would prohibit any direct U.S. assistance, loan guarantee, or debt relief to the PA so long as it is affiliated with Hamas. The bill is currently tied up in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. It should be voted out and debated by the full Senate. Last year Edwin Black, writing in The Times of Israel, reported that “Each year, American aid and financial programs fungibly fund terrorist salaries paid by the Palestinian Authority. This astonishing financial dynamic is known to most Israeli leaders and Western journalists in Israel. ... But it is still a shock to most in Congress, who are unaware that U.S. money going to the Palestinian Authority is regularly diverted to a program that systematically rewards terrorists with generous salaries.” Now that the Palestinian Authority has formally aligned with Hamas and its murderous objectives, which in reality are little different from theirs, despite its outward claim that Israel has a right to exist (how tolerant of them), ending U.S. aid might get their attention. There is no moral equivalency between Israel and those who wish to destroy the Jewish state. None. Stopping aid to terrorists would be the best policy option. Readers may email Cal Thomas at

States see record-low primary turnouts By PHILIP ELLIOTT Associated Press

AP News Extra

WASHINGTON — More than half the states to hold primary elections so far have seen record-low turnouts, according to a nonpartisan survey of voter rolls released Monday. That perhaps is a sign of widespread apathy within both political parties ahead of November’s midterm elections. Of the almost 123 million voters who were eligible to cast ballots in primaries, only 18 million have done so, and states with same-day voter registration actually saw their turnout rates drop, according to the Center for the Study of the American Electorate. Despite heavy campaign spending that is poised to make history, 15 of the 25 states that have held statewide primary elections each reported a record low percentage of voters who cast ballots.

The low turnout comes amid high stakes. Republicans are driving for the sixseat gain required to control the Senate. Nonetheless, Democrats saw a 29 percent decline from 2010’s primaries, the 11th consecutive midterm elections to see a drop in participation. Republicans posted a 15 percent decline in participation from 2010. But their rate was closer to historical norms after tea party enthusiasm in 2010 led to a turnout spike. The two parties’ combined participation rate this year — 14.8 percent — is less than half of the most recent high of 32 percent, posted in 1966. In all, the numbers suggest the campaigns, party committees and independent super PACs are spending potentially record

A major contributing factor is congressional redistricting that followed the 2010 census, the report suggests. Lawmakers drew district lines to favor one party, thus leaving the minority party unmotivated to show up at the polls to pick a nominee that was all-but-certain to lose in November. “Organized interests representing the views of only 3 to 4 percent of the electorate can win those primaries and propel one of their own to office,” the report’s author Curtis Gans wrote. “The result can be seen in how the tea party has become a dominant player in Republican congressional and state legislative politics. But the danger exists for both parties.”

Nation & World

Rebels release train with bodies

Around the World Obama bans discrimination agains workers and contractors who are gay and transgender WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Monday ordered employment protection for gay and transgender employees who work for the federal government or for companies holding federal contracts, telling advocates he embraced the “irrefutable rightness of your cause.” “America’s federal contracts should not subsidize discrimination against the American people,” Obama declared at a White House signing ceremony. Obama said it was unacceptable that being gay is still a firing offense in many places in the United States, and he called on Congress to extend the ban to all employers. But legislation that would extend the ban has become embroiled in a dispute over whether religious groups should get exemptions. The president had long resisted pressure to pursue an executive anti-discrimination order covering federal contractors in the hope that Congress would take more sweeping action. The Senate passed legislation last year with some Republican support, but it has not been considered by the GOP-controlled House. Now, said Obama, “It’s time to address this injustice for every American.” Mia Macy of Portland, Oregon, watched Obama’s announcement in tears as an invited guest in the East Room. The military veteran and former Phoenix police detective applied to be a ballistics expert with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms as a male but was rejected after she changed her name and began identifying as a woman. She filed a successful complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and settled a discrimination lawsuit against the government last year.

Red meat isn’t very green: Study finds beef pollutes more than pork, poultry, dairy, eggs






WASHINGTON — Raising beef for the American dinner table does far more damage to the environment than producing pork, poultry, eggs or dairy, a new study says. Compared with the other animal proteins, beef produces five times more heat-trapping gases per calorie, puts out six times as much water-polluting nitrogen, takes 11 times more water for irrigation and uses 28 times the land, according to the study, published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Cows are not efficient at converting feed to protein for human consumption, said lead author Gidon Eshel, an environmental physics professor at Bard College in New York. Eshel used U.S. government figures to calculate air and water emissions and how much water and land were used in the lifetime production of beef, pork, poultry, dairy and eggs. While other studies have looked at the issue, this is one of the most comprehensive pieces of research quantifying and comparing the U.S. environmental costs of different meats and other animal protein. The beef industry called the study “a gross oversimplification of the complex systems that make up the beef value chain.”

Man who died in NYC chokehold case was a ‘gentle giant,’ friends say NEW YORK — Eric Garner was a familiar figure on the streets near Staten Island’s ferry docks: to his friends, a congenial giant with a generous gesture or a calming word; to police, a persistent face of the small-time crime of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes. Garner’s last run-in with police spiraled into a confrontation in which an officer applied an apparent chokehold, leaving the married father of six dead and police tactics under scrutiny. And it left some who knew him wondering why such conduct was used against a man they describe as a neighborhood peacemaker. “That’s the ironic part about it. He’s the most gentle of everybody over there,” friend Irvine Johnson said. Public anguish over Garner’s death kept building Monday, as a small group of demonstrators gathered outside City Hall to demand the police commissioner’s resignation. Medical examiners were working to pinpoint the cause of Garner’s death, prosecutors and police internal affairs detectives were investigating officers’ conduct in the encounter, and the Fire Department was probing paramedics’ and emergency medication technicians’ actions. Garner, 43, whose friends called him “Big E” and “Teddy Bear,” had a son starting college, five other children and two grandchildren, and a quarter-century-long relationship with his wife, Esaw. He’d had had a couple of temporary jobs with the city Parks Department in recent years, most recently helping with horticulture crews and maintenance in 2013.

Mexican ‘coyotes’: New wave of migration puts light on decades-old smuggling TECUN UMAN, Guatemala — The man-in-the-know nursed a late-morning beer at a bar near the Suchiate River that separates Guatemala from Mexico, and answered a question about his human smuggling business with a question: “Do you think a coyote is going to say he’s a coyote?” Dressed as a migrant in shorts and sandals but speaking like an entrepreneur, he then described shipments of tens of thousands of dollars in human cargo from the slums of Honduras and highlands of Guatemala to cities across the United States. “It’s business,” he said, agreeing to speak to a reporter only if guaranteed anonymity. “Sometimes, business is very good.” Judging by the dramatic increase in the number of minors apprehended in the United States in recent months, it seems the human smuggling business from Central America is booming. The vast majority of migrants who enter the U.S. illegally do so with the help of a network of smugglers known as “coyotes,” so named for the scavengers that prowl the border. It is a high-risk, often high-yield business estimated to generate $6.6 billion a year for smugglers along Latin America’s routes to the U.S., according to a 2010 United Nations report. The migrants pay anywhere from $4,000 to $10,000 each for the illegal journey across thousands of miles in the care of smuggling networks that in turn pay off government officials, gangs operating on trains and drug cartels controlling the routes north. — The Associated Press


HRABOVE, Ukraine — Bowing to international pressure Monday, pro-Moscow separatists released a train packed with bodies and agreed to hand over the black boxes from the downed Malaysia Airlines plane, four days after it plunged into rebelheld eastern Ukraine. With body parts decaying in sweltering heat and signs that evidence at the crash site was mishandled, anger in Western capitals has mounted at the rebels and their allies in Moscow. Their reluctant cooperation will soothe mourning families and help investigators, but may do little to reconcile the EastWest powers struggling over Ukraine’s future. Russia’s Defense Ministry said it saw no evidence a missile was fired and denied involvement in the downing of Flight 17 — and suggested the Ukrainian military was at fault. President Vladimir Putin spoke out but showed no sign of abandoning the separatists as fighting flared anew near the site of the crash. President Barack Obama accused the rebels of tampering with evidence and insulting victims’ families, warning of new sanctions. Europeans will consider their own sanctions Tuesday. The bodies of the 298 victims, most from the Netherlands, have become a part of the conflict in Ukraine because they could hold evidence of what brought the plane down on July 17 as it was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Grief turned to anger as families begged to get the bodies of their loved ones back, while the separatists held on to the remains. “Bodies are just lying there for three days in the hot sun. There are people who have this on their conscience,” said

Dana, the German shepherd, holds its own leash as a proRussian rebel holds a weapon while members of the OSCE mission to Ukraine and Holland’s National Forensic Investigations team inspect a refrigerated train loaded with the bodies of passengers, in Torez, eastern Ukraine, 9 miles from the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, Monday.

Silene Fredriksz-Hoogzand, whose son, Bryce, and his girlfriend Daisy Oehlers died on their way to a vacation in Bali, in an interview with The Associated Press in the Netherlands. “When I am in my bed at night, I see my son lying on the ground. ... They have to come home, not only those two. Everybody has to come home.” International forensics experts finally gained access to the crash site Monday — an emotional experience for the head of the Dutch National Forensic Investigations Team, Peter Van Vliet. Seeing the wreckage gave him goosebumps, he said. The team stumbled across remains that had not yet been removed and inspected the perished passengers’ luggage. In Torez, a rebel-held town 15 kilometers (9 miles) from the crash site, inspectors bowed heads and clasped hands before climbing aboard refrigerated train cars holding the collected bodies. Armed rebels surrounded them, while commuters boarded other trains nearby. The smell of decay was overwhelming. Workers wore

Gov. Rick Perry sending National Guard troops to the Texas-Mexico border By CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN and WILL WEISSERT Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — Gov. Rick Perry is deploying up to 1,000 National Guard troops to the Texas-Mexico border over the next month to combat what he said Monday were criminals exploiting a surge of children pouring into the U.S. illegally. Perry, a vocal critic of the White House’s response to the border crisis who is himself mulling a second presidential run, said the state has a responsibility to act after “lip service and empty promises” from Washington. “I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor,” the governor said. The deployment of National Guard troops, which may act in a law enforcement capacity under state authority, will cost Texas an estimated $12 million per month. They will simply be “referring and deterring” immigrants and not detaining people, Texas Adjutant General John Nichols said. But he added that the National Guard could take people into custody if need be. “We think they’ll come to us and say, ‘Please take us to a Border Patrol station,” Nichols said. Messages seeking comment were left with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Perry bristled at suggestions from some Democratic state lawmakers and business groups that his move means Texas is militarizing is southern border. Still, Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio said he didn’t know if troops would be coming to his part of the border and questioned what good they would do if they did. “Those people are trained for warfare, not for law enforcement,” said Lucio, whose county includes Brownsville. “I

think the money would be better spent if they would give it to the local law enforcement that is close to the border.” More than 3,000 Border Patrol agents currently work in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, but Perry had repeatedly asked Obama to send the National Guard to the border amid an influx of immigrants. Since October, more than 57,000 unaccompanied children and teenagers have entered the U.S. illegally — more than double compared to the same period a year earlier. Most have been from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, where rampant gang violence and intense poverty have driven tens of thousands of people outside their borders. Obama administration officials have said that the flood has slowed in recent weeks, with Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley finding fewer than 500 children last week compared to as many as 2,000 a week last month. Perry, though, said that, for years, the federal government failed to secure the border and suggested that criminal gangs could be exploiting the recent surge to make things worse. He said more than 200,000 criminals in the country illegally had been booked into Texas jails since 2008, many for drug-related offenses but also for homicides and sexual assaults. As governor, Perry can deploy National Guard troops, but that means Texas has to pay for it. An order by Obama would have meant Washington paid. Still, Perry and other top Texas conservatives said they expect the federal government to eventually reimburse the state. “Texans are willing to put the boots on the ground, but we expect Washington to foot the bill,” said Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican who is favored to replace Perry in November.

masks, while passersby twisted their faces in horror at the odor. Temperatures hit 84 degrees F (29 degrees C), and a train engineer told the AP that a power outage had hit the refrigeration system temporarily overnight. The rebels in Torez did not appear too conciliatory as the tense day wore on. They repeatedly tried to block reporters from access to the visiting experts, growing more aggressive throughout. Late Monday, trucks arrived at the Torez station with plastic bags apparently filled with body parts, as well as piles of luggage — suitcases, backpacks, a purse with a Louis Vuitton label. Ukrainian authorities said the total number of bodies recovered was 282. Dutch investigators demanded the separatists transfer the bodies immediately, and the rebels complied after several hours. With a long whistle and puff of smoke, the train bearing the bodies pulled slowly out of the station. Rebels holding automatic rifles walked alongside as it chugged away, a cluster of chil-

dren on bicycles looking on. It was headed through troubled territory, its destination not 100 percent clear. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the train was heading for the rebel-held city of Donetsk, 50 kilometers (30 miles) west of the crash site, and then on to Kharkiv, site of a crisis center controlled by the Ukrainian government. He said Ukrainian authorities have agreed to let the bodies be transferred from there to the Netherlands for identification, but gave no time frame. Malaysia’s prime minister said the rebels agreed to hand over both black boxes from Flight 17 to Malaysian investigators in Ukraine later Monday. A team of international observers at the sprawling crash site described strange behavior by workers. “When we were leaving, we observed workers there hacking into the fuselage with gaspowered equipment,” OSCE spokesman Michael Bociurkiw told reporters in Donetsk. He said there was no security perimeter Monday at one of the bigger debris fields, and monitors saw that one of the largest pieces of the plane “had somewhat been split or moved apart.” In Washington, Obama asked, “What exactly are they trying to hide?” “This is an insult to those who have lost loved ones. This is the kind of behavior that has no place in the community of nations,” he said. On Sunday, the U.S. said there was “powerful” evidence that the rebels had shot down the plane with a Russian surface-to-air missile, including video of a rocket launcher, one surface-to-air missile missing, being driven away from the likely launch site; imagery showing the firing; phone calls claiming credit for the missile strike and phone recordings said to reveal a cover-up at the crash site.

Israeli mood turns dark with mounting casualties By ARON HELLER and DAN PERRY Associated Press

JERUSALEM — For almost two weeks, Israel practically bristled with confidence and pride: The Iron Dome air defense system was dependably zapping incoming Hamas rockets from the skies, the military was successfully repelling infiltration attempts on the ground and from the sea, and the conflict with Hamas was causing almost no casualties in Israel. That has changed in what seems like a flash, after at least 25 soldiers were killed and scores injured — a predictable yet still stunning outcome of the fateful decision, announced late Thursday, to send troops and tanks by land into Hamasruled Gaza. In a country where military service is mandatory for most citizens, and military losses are considered every bit as tragic as civilian ones, the reaction to the setbacks was electric. Newspapers and broadcasts have been dominated by images and tales of the fallen — mostly young faces barely out of high school — and interviews with parents concerned for offspring so clearly now imperiled. Angst over the highest military toll since the 2006 Lebanon

war now mixes with a cocktail of emotions: on one hand, a strong current of determination to press on with efforts to end the rocket fire from Gaza; on the other, the sinking feeling that a quagmire is at hand. “It’s ugly and it’s no walk in the park,” said Alon Geller, a 42-year-old legal intern from central Israel. “But we have to finish the operation. If we stop now before reaching our goals, the soldiers will have died in vain.” But the Haaretz newspaper warned against mission creep and the “wholesale killing” of Palestinian civilians. “The soft Gaza sand ... could turn into quicksand,” it said in its editorial Monday. “There can be no victory here. ... Israel must limit its time in the Strip.” There was always near-consensus among Israelis for the airstrikes aimed at ending the rocket fire, which they considered unreasonable and outrageous. The Palestinian fatalities caused by the airstrikes — over 500 in two weeks, many of them civilians — are generally blamed here on Hamas, for locating launchers in civilian areas and for proving to be cynical and nihilistic, to Israeli eyes, at every turn. But a ground invasion of Gaza is another story, and the

Israelis take cover as a siren sounds during a rocket attack fired by Palestinian militants from Gaza, in Tel Aviv, Israel, Monday. Over the weekend, the first major ground battle in two weeks of Israel-Hamas fighting exacted a steep price, killing scores of Palestinians and more than a dozen Israeli soldiers. In Israel, a country where military service is mandatory for most citizens, military losses are considered every bit as tragic as civilian ones

government had clearly hesitated to take the risk. Houseto-house fighting, tanks exposed in fields, the danger of a soldier being kidnapped, to be traded for thousands after years in captivity: It is an untidy and dispiriting affair. The government felt it necessary to take such a risky step because despite all the damage being inflicted on Gaza by the airstrikes, the Hamas rocket fire simply did not stop. Israeli of-

ficials also felt world opinion would understand after Hamas rejected a cease-fire proposal that Israel had accepted. Complicating the situation from Israel’s perspective, Hamas does not seem to be coming under significant pressure from the people of Gaza despite the devastation they are enduring. While Gaza is no democracy and Hamas rules by force, this seems to reflect genuine support for Hamas’ aim of breaking the

blockade imposed by Israel and Egypt on the strip. Emboldened, Hamas ratcheted up attempts to carry out deadly attacks against Israeli border communities through tunnels dug underneath the fence separating Israel from Gaza. For Israelis, that raised a terrifying specter of families in placid farming areas on the edge of the Negev desert waking up to find swarms of Islamic militants in their midst. “This brought it home that they are out to kill us and we have to stop them,” said Yehuda Ben-Meir, a political analyst at the Institute for National Security Studies. “No one can say he (Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu) was trigger-happy. It convinced the Israeli public that the decision taken by Netanyahu came from a sense of ‘we have no other choice.’” Despite the absence of panic Monday, it is clear that if soldiers continue to be killed at this rate, the flexibility enjoyed by Netanyahu to date will likely be replaced by a growing sense of urgency to stop the casualties. Many Israeli leftists will demand an end to the operation. Hard-liners will demand more radical action, up to and including a takeover of Gaza. That will add to the already mounting pressure from an outside

world horrified by the carnage on the Palestinian side. The prime minister is probably mindful that the popularity tipping point for his predecessor, Ehud Olmert, came when the public concluded too many soldiers were being killed and that the military was not fully prepared during the 2006 war. Some — in the government and on the street — are already calling for a total invasion aimed at ousting Hamas, even if this leaves Israel again occupying a hostile and impoverished population of 1.8 million, as it did for nearly four uncomfortable decades until its pullout from Gaza in 2005. For the moment the ground operation is mostly limited to areas relatively near the Israeli border, where Israel is shutting down tunnels and hunting for rocket launchers; a takeover of Gaza City would probably be much more costly still. “I hate war. I’m pained by every death,” said Haviv Shabtai, a 61-year-old Jerusalem bus driver who has served in several wars, has a son currently called up, and had opposed a ground invasion because of the risk. Shabtai said he took the losses personally and was even physically overwhelmed at the news. “After recovering from that shock,” he said, “I say go all the way.”

John Hopkins pays $190M in pelvis exam pix settlement By JULIET LINDERMAN Associated Press

BALTIMORE — A “rogue” gynecologist who used tiny cameras to secretly record videos and photos of his patients has forced one of the world’s top medical centers to pay $190 million to 8,000 women and girls. Dr. Nikita Levy was fired after 25 years with the Johns Hopkins Health System in Baltimore in February 2013 after a female co-worker spotted the pen-like camera he wore around his neck and alerted authorities. Levy committed suicide days later, as a federal investigation led to roughly 1,200 videos and 140 images stored on computers in his home. “All of these women were brutalized by this,” said their lead attorney, Jonathan Schochor. “Some of these women needed counseling, they were sleepless, they were dysfunctional in the workplace, they

were dysfunctional at home, they were dysfunctional with their mates. This breach of trust, this betrayal — this is how they felt.” The preliminary settlement approved by a judge Monday is one of the largest on record in the U.S. involving sexual misconduct by a physician. It all but closes a case that never produced criminal charges but seriously threatened Hopkins’ reputation. Lawyers said thousands of women were traumatized, even though their faces were not visible in the images and it could not be established with certainty which patients were recorded or how many. Schochor said it would be impossible and only cause more distress to “sit around a table and try to identify sexual organs without pictures of faces.” Plaintiffs’ attorney Howard Janet said 62 girls were among the victims, and that Levy violated hospital protocol by send-

ing chaperones out of the exam room. Hopkins said insurance will cover the settlement, which “properly balances the concerns of thousands of plaintiffs with obligations the Health System has to provide ongoing and superior care to the community.” “It is our hope that this settlement_and findings by law enforcement that images were not shared_helps those affected achieve a measure of closure,” the hospital statement said, adding that “one individual does not define Johns Hopkins.” Myra James, 67, had been going to him for annual exams for 20 years. Since his misconduct became public, she hasn’t been to a gynecologist once. “I can’t bring myself to go back,” James said. “You’re lying there, exposed. It’s violating and it’s horrible, and my trust is gone. Period.” The AP normally does not identify possible victims of sex

crimes, but James agreed to the use of her name. Levy, 54, graduated from the Weill Cornell Medical College in Manhattan, and completed his internship and residency at Kings County Hospital Center. He began working at Hopkins in 1988, and was working at Hopkins East Baltimore Medical Center at the end. He saw roughly 12,600 patients during his years at Hopkins. About 8,000 joined the class-action, alleging the hospital should have known what he was up to. “There was no inkling of it. Hopkins was unaware,” said Hopkins’ attorney, Donald DeVries, who said Levy went “rogue.” Once alerted, hospital authorities quickly notified Baltimore police and escorted Levy off campus. Police and federal investigators said they found no evidence he shared the material with others. Schochor said all

the images will be destroyed by court order. Some women told of being inappropriately touched and verbally abused by Levy, according to Schochor. Some said they were regularly summoned to Levy’s office for unnecessary pelvic exams. “Did he take pictures of me? There’s no way of knowing,” said another former patient whose two children were delivered by Levy. “I felt violated, because I don’t know if for sure if he had pictures of me, or who has seen them.” His suicide — by wrapping his head in a plastic bag with a hose connected to a helium tank — frustrated everyone who wanted to know his motives and see him face justice. The settlement involves eight law firms and is subject to final approval by Judge Sylvester B. Cox after a “fairness hearing” where the women can speak. Each plaintiff was interviewed

by a forensic psychologist and a post-traumatic stress specialist to determine how much trauma she suffered and how much money she will receive. Hopkins sent out letters to Levy’s entire patient list last year, apologizing to the women and urging them to seek care with other Hopkins specialists. But hundreds were so traumatized that they “dropped out of the medical system,” and some even stopped sending their children to doctors, Schochor said. James said her dealings with Levy were always unsettling. She said she found it strange that he conducted examinations without a nurse present. “He was cold, and I was kind of scared of him. His bedside manner — he didn’t have any,” she said. “But all my doctors were at Hopkins. I’ve had two surgeries there, my primary doctor is there. I was used to going there for everything.”

Missing New Hampshire teen, Abigail Hernandez, home after 9 months CONWAY, N.H. (AP) — A 15-year-old New Hampshire girl who disappeared while on her way home from school nine months ago is safely home with her family, the state attorney general said Monday. Abigail Hernandez was reunited with her family on Sunday evening, Attorney General Joseph Foster said. Foster said the family has asked for privacy. He said Abigail’s mother, Zenya Hernandez, told authorities “today

we are the happiest people on earth.” Police said Abigail was last seen Oct. 9 after leaving Kennett High School in Conway. Police said she walked her normal route toward her house and sent several texts between 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. But she never made it home. Police did reveal several months ago that she had written home to her mother. When the letter surfaced, FBI Special Agent In Charge Kieran Ram-

sey said there was the possibility that Abigail had run away but that someone could still be coercing her into staying away from home. “The long and short of it is, quite honestly, we are just happy that she’s home safe and sound right now,” Ramsey said Monday. He declined to discuss specifics of the investigation. In a brief statement, Foster said the criminal investigation in Abigail’s disappearance will continue. Jane Young, chief of

the attorney general’s criminal bureau, said the case required the kind of full-scale investigation that was launched. “We said all along, this was a child who was missing and we marshalled all our resources and we can gratefully say that she was able to be reunited with her family,” Young said. After Abigail disappeared, police initially said she made it home, but later said she hadn’t. Police also at first said she made a call about 6:30 p.m. that

day but later said that, too, was wrong. After she vanished, police consistently said they have no evidence to suggest anything suspicious and were treating her disappearance as a missingperson’s case. The disappearance rattled the town of 2,300 residents in Mount Washington Valley, who were reminded of the still-unsolved killing of another young girl from rural New Hampshire three years ago: 11-year-old

Celina Cass disappeared from her West Stewartstown home in July 2011, and her body was recovered a week later in the Connecticut River. In Conway, rescuers fanned out for days over the heavily forested terrain that surrounds the townhouse where Hernandez lives with her mother. Police also searched by air, stopped traffic and handed out missing posters and used boats on the Saco River and Pudding Pond.

Brothers Eli and Zack Porter saw the boat upside down and quickly came to the rescue and pulled a father and son from the frigid river. While on a commercial fishing excursion, Zack Porter said a deckhand noticed a boat upside down about 50 yards away, not far from Kenai Landing. He drove his skiff up against the boat and pulled two men out of the water. A woman was rescued from the water by another boater. As soon as the father made it onto the deck, he pointed down to his boat and said his dog was trapped underneath. Despite wearing a life jacket, the dog could not be saved in time. Zack Porter said the tide and all the boaters on the river made for a fast current and big wakes. Porter, who lives in Homer, said it was the first time in 12 years on the Kenai River during dipnet season. “It was dangerous out there,” he said. “The current was running fast with so many boats on the water. We were happy to help them out. They were nice people.” Porter said the father, who he guessed was about 70 years old, and his son were probably in the water for several minutes. The father was cold and sapped of energy, but thankful. Porter said he couldn’t flip the boat over to rescue the dog. Kenai Battalion Chief Tony Prior said boaters should take the proper precautions before heading out on the water and call 911 if they do see an accident. If anyone is in need of a rescue, he said boaters should put their motor in neutral and try to approach the bow downriver at an upriver angle. “The boat operator should concentrate on not causing another accident and shouldn’t be fixated on rescuing with so many boats not paying attention,” he said. “Once people are rescued don’t put yourself at further risk trying to flip a boat back over.” Prior said boaters should check weather conditions before they go on the water and always wear a life jacket. The six people that went into the river all were wearing life jackets. “Always pay attention to what the other boats are doing,” he said. “Life preservers buy you time in the event of a rescue.”

Nelson said it is typical this time of year to see a spike in accidents for a variety of reasons. “What we find every year, whether people are camping and fishing all day, by Sunday they are exhausted,” he said. “We have had people fall asleep and run off the road, or show impatience trying to pass. Alcohol has been a factor as well. It seems to rear its ugly head on busy weekends.” To kick off the weekend, a three-vehicle accident occurred Friday at about 4:30 p.m. in a highway work zone near Mile 79.5 of the Sterling Highway. Gene Davis, 44 of Anchorage was driving a tractor-trailer when he came upon a line of cars stopped for a flagger. According to a trooper dispatch, Davis attempted to avoid the collision but his rear tire struck a Honda motorcycle, driven by Daniel Riggs, 53, from Texas. The motorcycle pushed forward into a Dodge pickup driven by James Sumner, 72, of Indian. Trooper spokesperson Beth Ipsen said road crews were painting lines where the highway breaks into four lanes. Sumner was hauling a boat and had about a dozen vehicles in front of him. Davis reported he didn’t see brake lights and didn’t realize the cars were stopped. The trailer hit Riggs and pushed his bike into the inflatable boat in front, Ipsen said. Riggs suffered minor injuries and was wearing a helmet, while the other two drivers were wearing seatbelts. Davis was issued a citation. “Everything was drivable, miraculously,” Ipsen said. Ipsen said the trooper who responded on scene said there was a lot of traffic in the area and he was concerned with people not paying attention to troopers stopped on the side of the road during a traffic stop. A collision between two boaters sent three people into the Kenai River Saturday — the second boating accident to occur at the mouth of the river in a three-day span. Kenai Police Lt. David Ross said all three people were rescued from the water, brought to shore at the Warren Ames Bridge and transported to CPH for non-life threatening injuries.

his back, chest and left shoulder. He was transported to the base hospital. The area surrounding the attack will be closed for one week, base spokesman Jim Hart said. It was the second mauling at the base in two months. Jessica Gamboa was badly mauled May 18 as she jogged on a trail and encountered a bear and her two cubs. Gamboa, the wife of a soldier stationed at the base, has said she didn’t scream or fight during the attack, and the bear left her bleeding in an embankment. She sustained cuts to her neck, arms and legs, a torn ear and neck fractures. She was rushed to a hospital by a soldier who was driving by when he saw her walking down the road holding both hands to her bleeding neck.

There’s no way of telling if the same bear was involved in Sunday’s attack, said Jessy Coltrane, a wildlife biologist with Alaska Department of Fish and Game, which also responded to the latest encounter. Coltrane said genetic material from the bear in the May attack was not available. There are no plans to look for the bear in Sunday’s attack, said Coltrane, who noted that a search of the area failed to immediately find it. There are no immediate public safety concerns, she said. Besides, the attack occurred in the middle of the woods in thick brush without a pattern of recreational use. And it was a defensive attack by a sow with two cubs. “It was basically a bear being a bear,” Coltrane said.

changed but that the consortium is asking for permission to ship 20 million tons per year to leave a margin for growth. The project would process 3 to 3.5 billion cubic feet of gas produced on the North Slope and would convert 2.2 billion to 2.5 billion cubic feet per day into LNG. The difference between the gas produced and the gas converted to LNG is the amount used for fuel and for supply of gas to Alaska communities, which is estimated at about 400 million to 450 million cubic feet per day for maximum winter demand, which is the amount the project designers must use for planning, Butt said. The filing follows the signing of a Joint Venture Agreement among the parties on July 2 to fund $500 million for prefront-end engineering and design for the project. The overall project is now expected to cost $45 billion to $65 billion. The pre-FEED study, which is expected to be completed in late 2015 or early 2016, would provide an updated cost estimate, Butt said in an interview. If the results of the “pre-FEED” are favorable the parties would proceed in 2016 to the full Front-End Engineering and Design, which could cost between $1 billion and $2 billion. Final investment decisions

on construction could come in 2019, which would have the project in operation in 2024 if it proceeds, he said. An economic study by NERA Economic Consulting was submitted in support of the application citing “unequivocally positive” economic impacts in Alaska and the United States. Benefits to the nation must be quantified if the government is to allow the exports. The project is anticipated to create up to 15,000 jobs in Alaska during construction and would require about 1,000 for operations, according to the announcement made Monday. The proposed project facilities include a liquefaction plant and terminal in the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula; an 800-mile, 42-inch pipeline up to eight compression stations and at least five take off points for in-state gas delivery and a large gas treatment plant on the North Slope. Butt said the consortium has purchased property at the Nikiski site for the LNG plant. “We’ve purchased quite a bit of what we need but we would like to have more,” he said in a July 17 interview. “We’ve said we would like to have 400 to 500 acres for the plant but we would really like more because we will need ‘laydown’ (storage) space for materials and equipment and also an area for fabrication,” he said. About 3,500 to 5,000 construction workers might be

Around Alaska Former President George W. Bush donates to Sullivan campaign JUNEAU — Contributors to Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Dan Sullivan’s campaign include a former president and first lady. Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, each contributed $1,250 to Sullivan in April. The donations show up on his latest financial disclosure, which spans from April through June. Sullivan served as an assistant secretary of state in the Bush White House. He is vying for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat held by Democrat Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election. The other prominent Republican candidates are Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller. The quarterly filing deadline was last Tuesday. Both Sullivan and Begich have released their full disclosure reports. Treadwell and Miller have yet to release any details about the past fundraising quarter. The primary is Aug. 19.

needed depending on how the plant is designed, Butt said, and “several hundred” for operations once the LNG plant is built and operating. The operations workforce will depend on how decisions are made to configure the plant, he said. The North Slope gas treatment plant would be another mega-plant built as a part of the pipeline and LNG project. The treatment plant might require as many as four summer “sealifts” to move modules and other equipment by sea to the slope, Butt said. Some of the modules will be very large, up to 8,000 tons. Modules shipped to the slope in prior sealifts have usually ranged in the 3,000 tons to 5,000 tons in weight. Although the large modules would be built outside Alaska and shipped by barge to the slope, a great number of smaller module units will also be needed and many of those would be built at Alaska fabrication sites, he said. Meanwhile, this summer about 250 people are employed in field work to gather data along the planned pipeline right-of-way with most of the effort focused on the southern half of the proposed line from Livengood near Fairbanks to Cook Inlet, Butt said. The work includes archeological and cultural surveys. “People are literally walking the right-of-way,” Butt said. Eighty percent of the hired for the summer field program are Alaskan, he said.


The major pipeline river crossings at the Yukon and Susitna rivers are still technical challenges. However, depending on which of three planned southern routes is chosen the Susitna crossing might be avoided so that the pipeline remains on the river’s east side. That would require a Cook Inlet crossing further north, however. The inlet crossing itself does not pose a major construction problem because there are already many pipelines in the inlet and a great deal of knowledge within the industry. However, endangered beluga whales in the inlet are a concern and construction would have to be timed do as to have a least impact, he said. The state of Alaska is participating in the project through the state-owned Alaska Gasline Development Corp. The project agreement is structured so that the three major gas producers, BP, ExxonMobil, ConocoPhillips as well as TransCanada, a pipeline company, would own the large North Slope gas treatment plant and the gas pipeline. However, the state has an option to purchase 40 percent of TransCanada’s share, although that option must be exercised in 2016. The state will meanwhile own 25 percent of the LNG plant at Nikiski through the AGDC, with the three producers owning the other 75 percent. TransCanada will have no share of the LNG plant.

the days leading to Sunday’s scheduled regatta. Gretchen Gordon, assistant general manager at KUAC, which sponsored the event, said organizers went over their options, including possibly changing the route or pushing the regatta back. But she said a suitable alternative route could not be found and they were skeptical they’d be able to run the event in the next few weeks given how rainy the summer has been. Water levels on the Chena River peaked between Thursday and Friday before beginning to fall, the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported. A forecast earlier in the week had estimated the river would fall between 5 feet and 6 feet by Sunday. It was 5.7 feet by noon on Sunday. In the end, the event was moved off the water, and into a parking lot, where entries were judged.

Search underway for Brevig Mission man ANCHORAGE — Alaska State Troopers say searchers have found the clothing of a Brevig Mission man who has been missing for nearly one week, but no other sign of him has turned up. KTUU says 21-year-old Clarence Ray Olanna was last seen by his family last Tuesday. Troopers say Olanna’s clothing was found the following day on the shore near the western Alaska village. The search for Olanna has involved boats, four-wheelers and an Alaska Army National Guard helicopter. Gusty winds prevented boaters from searching the waters on Saturday, and people on all-terrain vehicles searched from the village to Lost River. The search continued on Sunday.

Limo’s 17 occupants uninjured in Anchorage drive-by shooting ANCHORAGE — Anchorage police say there’s been no reports of injuries after more than 30 rounds were fired at a limousine bus containing 17 people. Police say 10 rounds hit the limo during the early Sunday morning shooting in Midtown Anchorage. All but one of the limo’s occupants fled the scene when the bus stopped. The remaining witness told officers the limo’s occupants had spent about two hours earlier in the evening at Al’s Alaskan Inn. The witness wasn’t aware of any altercations at the nightclub and said she didn’t know why anyone would shoot at them. Everyone inside ducked down when the shooting started. Police collected more than 30 shell casings from four different guns from the shooting scene near 47th Avenue and Arctic Boulevard.

High water moves regatta into parking lot FAIRBANK — High water forced the cancellation of the Red Green Regatta in Fairbanks over the weekend, with the fun moved off the water and into a parking lot. Participants, who build floats from recycled materials and a required minimum of one roll of duct tape, had been warned last week to plan for less clearance under bridges than in the past and to consider adjustments for tall boats. The main concern was with the low hang of the Veterans Memorial Bridge, which only allowed for several feet of clearance in C

Glacier Pilots rally late to topple Oilers Staff report

The Peninsula Oilers dropped a 9-4 decision to the Anchorage Glacier Pilots on Monday at Coral Seymour Memorial Park in Kenai. The loss is the sixth straight overall for the Oilers, as well as the fourth straight in the Alaska Baseball League. Peninsula is now 9-18 in the ABL and 1821-2 overall. The Glacier Pilots move to 15-15 in the league and sit four games behind the Mat-Su Miners in the National League. The Pilots and Oilers finish the series with a 5 p.m. doubleheader today at Seymour Park. Monday, the Oilers came back from an early deficit to tie the game at 4 after eight innings, but the Pilots jumped on

Oilers reliever Cody Richey in the ninth inning for five runs (four earned) on four hits. Richey got one out in the ninth before Scott Torrey came in to record the final two outs. Both teams had nine hits in the game, but the Oilers made four errors and walked nine, while the Pilots were errorless and walked five. The Pilots jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Justin Protacio started the game with a walk, then Chester Pak reached on an error to put runners on first and third. Kevin Viers then tripled to score Protacio and Pak, then Trevor Podratz scored Viers on a sacrifice fly. After that, Oilers starter Dallas DeVrieze settled in and

Peninsula began to battle back into the game. DeVrieze would go eight innings and give up four runs (two earned) with seven walks and four strikeouts. He threw 143 pitches. In the bottom of the fourth, Jake Sandlin started the inning with a single. With one away, Ethan McGill and Alex Rubanowitz singled to score Sandlin. Nick Thurman then singled to load the bases, but the Oilers could score no more runs. In the bottom of the fifth, Mylz Jones made it 3-2 with a monstrous home run to left field. In the top of the eighth, the Pilots got to DeVrieze for one more unearned run. Viers and

Podratz both reached on errors before Clayton Taylor singled to score Viers. But the Oilers battled back with two runs to tie the game at 4 in the bottom of the eighth. Jeff Paschke had the big blow in the inning, doubling to score Rubanowitz and Thurman. But the Pilots put away the Oilers when Cody Richey came on in relief of DeVrieze to start the ninth. Anchorage sent 11 batters to the plate in the inning, racking up five of their nine hits. Protacio, Viers and Riley Adams had two hits for the Pilots, with Viers piling up three runs and three RBIs. For the Oilers, Paschke had three hits, including two doubles, while Thurman added a pair of hits.

Big 12 commish issues warning STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

DALLAS — Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby had a dire warning Monday for anyone who likes intercollegiate athletics the way they are now. “You’re going to hate it going forward,” Bowlsby said. “There’s a lot of change coming.” During his opening address at Big 12 football media days, Bowlsby talked about growing financial constraints athletic programs face going forward and the “strange environment” that exists with class-action lawsuits against the NCAA and its member schools. Bowlsby said he’s doesn’t think there is a real understanding of how much lawsuits — which he numbered as seven and “growing all the time” — could radically alter things. “I think all of that in the end

will cause programs to be eliminated. I think you’ll see men’s Olympic sports go away as a result of the new funding challenges that are coming down the pike,” he said. “I think there may be tension among and between sports on campus and institutions that have different resources.” While acknowledging the outcomes are unknown, the former Stanford athletic director expressed concern about fewer opportunities for some athletes to go college in the future. “I fear that we will get past the change and then we’ll realize that all the gymnastics programs went away, or that we have agents on campus all the time negotiating playing time for student athletes,” he said. “There’s all kind of Armageddon scenarios you could come up with. ... You wouldn’t have to be a very good fiction writer See WARN, Page A-9

Boston Red Sox’s David Ortiz hits his second two-run home run of the game during the fifth inning of a baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto on Monday.

Sterling has $500 Ortiz homers twice, passes Yaz million in loans By The Associated Press

TORONTO — One day after promising he was “about to get hotter than Jamaica in the middle of August,” David Ortiz hit two towering home runs. They were the 452nd and 453rd of his career, moving Ortiz past Boston great Carl Yastrzemski into 36th place on the all-time list, and the Red Sox won their fifth straight game Monday night, routing the Toronto Blue Jays 14-1. “He’s always hit well in this ballpark and tonight was another example,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said of Ortiz, whose 35 career homers at Rogers Centre are second only to Alex Rodriguez’s 36. Ortiz matched Yastrzemski with a two-run blast to center off left-hander Brad Mills in the fourth, then broke the short-lived tie with another two-run shot off Mills in the fifth, his 21st and 22nd hom-

ers of the season. The slugger had little to say about his milestone homers, pushing past reporters by saying “Put it down like this: I’m on my way to Jamaica.” It was the third multihomer game of the season for Ortiz and the 44th of his career. Ortiz’s first homer ended his 0-for-18 skid against Toronto and an 0-for-11 slump overall. He went 1 for 13 in Boston’s weekend sweep of Kansas City. “He’s a Hall of Famer in my eyes,” said Mike Napoli, who followed Ortiz’s second shot with his 12th homer, the fourth time this season Boston has gone back-to-back. Stephen Drew added a three-run homer as the Red Sox connected a season-high four times and won for the eighth time in nine games. “We’re getting a good offensive approach over the last 10 games or so,” Farrell said. Dustin Pedroia was the

only Boston starter without a hit as the Red Sox set season highs in runs and hits (18). Pedroia went 0 for 4 before being replaced and is hitless in 13 at-bats. John Lackey (11-6) allowed one run and two hits in seven innings to win his second straight start. Felix Doubront worked the eighth and Craig Breslow finished. “It was a fun night,” Lackey said. “It’s kind of fun to have these every now and then.” The Red Sox took the lead with two runs in the second and added four in the third, chasing Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison. Boston blew it open with two more in the fourth and six in the fifth against Mills. “The best thing about it is it’s over with,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. Hutchison (6-9) matched a career-high with six earned runs, the second straight outing he allowed that many, and

gave up a career-high nine hits in 2 2-3 innings, his shortest non-injury start. Hutchison, who lost for the first time in three outings against Boston, fell to 2-5 with a 7.71 ERA in eight home starts. “He had tough time getting anything going with his breaking ball, spiked a lot of them,” Gibbons said. Boston’s Brock Holt made the defensive play of the game, leaping into the right field wall to retire Dan Johnson for the first out of the fifth. “This is a guy who’s been an infielder his entire life and what he’s done in the outfield has been pretty remarkable,” Farrell said of Holt, who came up from his highlight play with a huge smile. “That was a pretty fun catch for me,” Holt said.

CFO says if Clippers are not sold, real estate must be sold LINDA DEUTSCH AP Special Correspondent

LOS ANGELES — The chief financial officer of Donald Sterling’s properties said Monday that the billionaire may be forced to sell a large portion of his real estate empire to cover $500 million in loans if he persists in refusing to sell the Los Angeles Clippers for $2 billion. Darren Schield, who oversees the finances of The Sterling Family Trust, testified Monday that three banks are ready to recall their loans to Sterling because of his decision to dissolve the trust. His move was designed to rescind his signed agreement for the sale of the Clippers, a team he bought for $12 million.

Schield said if Sterling has to dump $500 million worth of apartment buildings he could destabilize the Los Angeles real estate market. Sterling attorney Maxwell Blecher suggested that Sterling could take the company public in order to raise funds. But Shelly Sterling’s lawyer, Pierce O’Donnell asked if it would be easy to go public “with Donald Sterling’s reputation.” Schield responded: “There’s huge reputation issues. I don’t know if anyone would want to go into partnership with him.” The NBA banned Donald Sterling for life for making racist statements after the release of recorded conversations. Sterling has denied he is a racist See DEBT, Page A-9

Nibali confidently answers questions about doping JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press

CARCASSONNE, France — Barring a disaster for him on French roads from now until Sunday, the man who looks set to win the Tour de France says he understands that cycling is still paying for its longtime doping plague. Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali knows that more than many. Both of cycling’s other “Grand Tours” that he has already won were marred by doping cases. Last year’s Giro d’Italia was tarnished by three positive tests while in the 2010 Vuelta Nibali’s runner-up, Ezequiel Mosquera, later tested positive for a masking agent that can hide blood-booster EPO — long cycling’s designer drug. But on the rest day Monday before the pack heads to the Pyrenees, the serene, talented and methodical 29-yearold Italian was focusing on the race,

saying he wants to make sure he avoids a “crisis” like the crashes that forced out rivals 2013 Tour champ Chris Froome and two-time winner Alberto Contador. In post-stage news conferences, he has confidently fielded and answered questions about doping. “Unfortunately, those questions arise because we’re paying (for) the past years. I try to answer in the most correct way, like I already did at the Giro last year,” Nibali said after Sunday’s Stage 15. “I’m here to give the best answers I can, and clarify everything about myself.” “I’ve always been a flag-bearer of anti-doping.” As the race embarks Tuesday on three days in the Pyrenees mountains, Nibali leads Alejandro Valverde — a 34-year-old Spaniard who once served a two-year ban after being implicated in a blood-doping ring — by 4 minutes, 37

seconds. Romain Bardet is third, 4:50 back, and fellow Frenchman Thibaut Pinot is fourth: 5:06 behind. American Tejay van Garderen is fifth, 5:49 back. A few components go into the calculation to understand those gaps, after more than 66 hours of total racing since the Tour’s start in Yorkshire, England on July 5. They include Nibali’s nearly indomitable performance in the mountains, which often prove crucial to separating the strong contenders for the Tour title from the rest of the pack; his relative strength in the time trial, which looms on the next-to-last race day; and the luxury that Nibali has: To focus on the few riders who could threaten him. If any one of them tries a breakaway in the coming days, expect Nibali and his strong Astana team to lay chase. He’ll be keeping close watch in Tuesday’s 237.5-kilometer (147.5-mile) Stage 16 from Carcassonne to Bagneres-deC




Luchon in the Pyrenees. It’s the longest stage this year and features the punishing Port de Bales climb. In this race, Nibali has shown maturity — by cannily winning Stage 2 — and exceptional bike control, such as over the cobblestones in Stage 5. In that stage, Froome crashed out due to injury and Nibali nibbled more than 2 minutes on Contador, forcing the Spaniard to start contemplating how to attack. Five stages later, he too crashed out. “Over the years, I’ve really learned a lot from all the big races: That every second counts,” Nibali said. “You can never know.” Those who know Nibali well says he combines innate cycling skill, a wellhoned physique and a tough training regimen. “We still need to win the Tour but we’re in a good position,” said Paolo Slongo, Nibali’s longtime trainer, at the

team’s hotel Monday. “There’s a lot of work behind winning a Grand Tour ... there are no strange recipes.” Nibali, a native of Messina, Sicily, called Slongo “the person who knows me best.” The trainer said something was trigggered in Nibali’s mind after he was unhappy with his performance in the time-trial at the Tour de Romandie in Switzerland about three months ago. “Vincenzo was dropped at the Romandie on the climb(s) by Froome,” Slongo said of the Swiss race. “Being Sicilian — Sicilians are full of pride ... he said, ‘OK, now I’ve got to really prepare perfectly, because I wasn’t competitive here and that’s not OK’.” Nibali took 5 days off to rest, then followed that up with eight to 10 weeks of physical preparation and two weeks of altitude training in Teide — a mountain in the Canary Islands favored by many pro cyclists.

Rodriguez headed to Real Madrid MADRID — World Cup scoring leader James Rodriguez of Colombia is said to be leaving Monaco for Real Madrid. The 23-year-old striker scored six goals in Brazil, including a spectacular volley against Uruguay in the second round. The Spanish sports newspaper As said Monday that Monaco has agreed to terms with Madrid. The paper adds that the president of the Spanish club, Florentino Perez, has delayed his flight to Los Angeles, where the team is to have preseason training. The sports newspaper Marca, traditionally close to Madrid executives, says Rodriguez is to be presented to fans Tuesday. Madrid already has signed Germany midfielder Toni Kroos for next season.

Williams heads to Bobcats CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Marvin Williams feels like he’s coming home. Nine years after leading the North Carolina men’s basketball team to a national championship, Williams returns to the Tar Heel state as a member of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets. “North Carolina has always been like a second home to me,” Williams said Monday at an introductory news conference after signing a two-year, $14 million deal. Williams returns with a chance to make an immediate impact as a starter, just as he did as a freshman helping the Tar Heels defeat Illinois 75-70 in the 2005 national title game. Hornets coach Steve Clifford views the 6-foot-9 Williams as a combo forward, but said his best position is at power forward.

Dareus to enter substance abuse program PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus agreed to enter an NFL substance abuse program in a bid to have felony drug charges in Alabama dismissed, his attorney said on Monday. Rod Giddens wrote in an email to The Associated Press that Dareus was allowed to enter the program during a hearing at Calhoun County Court in Alabama earlier in the day. Dareus attended the hearing while being excused from training camp in suburban Rochester, New York. Buffalo’s WKBW-TV first reported the agreement. Dareus, who is from Alabama and played for the Crimson Tide, was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after being stopped by a state trooper on May 5. The charges will be dismissed and potentially expunged should the 2011 first-round draft pick successfully complete the program. Giddens referred to Dareus as “a humble, gentle giant of a young man, who needs some mentors.” This marks the first positive step during what’s been a troubled — Staff and wire reports offseason for Dareus.

Schield testified in the probate trial that if Sterling’s loans go into default and he needs to refinance, banks would be reluctant to give him that much money at the low rate he has now. “I know the bank looks at this as a higher credit risk with all this going on,” he said. “The rate would go up considerably.” Sterling, the volatile owner of the team, agreed to the sale but then dissolved the family trust in an effort to stop it. Schield, testifying at the trial that will decide the future of a $2 billion deal to sell the Clippers to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, said he warned Sterling not to revoke the trust last month.

ORIOLES 4, ANGELS 2 ANAHEIM, Calif. — Adam Jones hit a pair of two-run homers, including a tiebreaking shot in the sixth inning, and the Orioles beat the Angels. Bud Norris (8-6) won for the fifth time in his last six starts, allowing two runs — one earned — and eight hits over 6 2-3 innings with eight strikeouts and two walks. The Orioles increased their AL East lead to four games over the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays. Norris was recalled from Double-A Bowie, where he was optioned on July 10 in order to keep him on his regular routine during the All-Star break. The Orioles did the same thing with Tuesday’s scheduled starter, Miguel Gonzalez, who was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on July 11.

“I told him a revocation of the trust would be a breach of the loan covenants and would result in defaults,” Schield said. He said he also discussed it with Sterling’s lawyer, Bobby Samini. “I told him this revocation would open up a Pandora’s box and trigger defaults,” Schield said. “Does the company have $500 million to pay off the loans?” asked O’Donnell. “We do not,” Schield answered. Asked what the recourse would be, he said, “We would have to start selling real estate. If we have to sell $500 million in apartment buildings, it would have an impact on the Los Angeles real estate market. “ Donald Sterling’s lawyers who had said they planned to call six witnesses Monday produced none of them and court was recessed early.

The water sources used by the City of Kenai contain arsenic. Arsenic is a naturally occurring mineral in the ground that may dissolve and contaminate water supplies. It is a common contaminant found in groundwater wells located throughout the Kenai Peninsula. In 2006, the federal Environmental Protection Agency lowered the maximum contamination level (MCL) for arsenic in drinking water from 50 parts per billion (ppb) to 10 ppb. Our routine arsenic test results vary depending on what wells we are using, but have historically ranged from ND (non-detectable) to 31.10 ppb. What do these arsenic test results mean? Our arsenic levels do not represent an immediate public health risk. This is not an emergency. If it had been, you would have been notified within 24 hours. However, some people who drink water containing arsenic in excess of the MCL over years could experience skin damage or problems with their circulatory system, and may have increased risk of getting cancer. What should you do? If you have specific health concerns, please consult your doctor. If you have a severely compromised immune system, have an infant, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at an increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking our water. What are we doing about it? We are currently working with the State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and will be collecting arsenic samples on a quarterly basis from any source that exceeds the arsenic MCL of 10 ppb. At the beginning of 2014 we were using water solely from well 2 which provides water that is below the arsenic MCL. Upon the completion of our newest well in April 2014 we began using well 2 and the new well 2B. Both of the wells are within regulatory limits for arsenic. Due to higher demand during summer months, and much lower than expected production from 2B, the two wells are not able to keep up with demand, and it was necessary to supplement our water production with wells 1 and 3. Both of those wells provide water that is in exceedance of the arsenic MCL. Wells 1 and 3 will be monitored for arsenic on a quarterly basis and compliance will be calculated on a running annual average at each sampling point. If we continue to exceed the MCL, we will work with the State to further address the issue. If our system was piped in such a way that we could mix the water from all four wells in a tank before delivering it to our customers, the arsenic test results from the mixed water would most probably fall below the MCL. However because the mixing occurs only in the water mains, and some of the wells test higher than the MCL, we must issue this notice. During the times of highest demand we produce only approximately 20% of our water from wells 1 and 3. During times of lower demand, we produce typically 0% and up to 20% of our water from these wells. This public health advisory is required by the State and provided to you by the City of Kenai to help ensure that your health is protected. For more information regarding this notice please contact Sean Wedemeyer, Public Works Director, with the City of Kenai at 907-283-8240. Notice Issuance Date: July 14, 2014.

Peninsula Clarion, Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Younger couples weigh in on how they handle money goes for his paycheck. — LEARNED MY LESSON IN FLORIDA DEAR ABBY: I’m a man in my mid-30s; my wife is in her mid-20s. Many of our friends keep their finances separate, and the reason usually involves hearing their parents argue over money. What I find interesting is that the wife usually came up with Abigail Van Buren the idea. I believe the separation of incomes starts with young women embracing messages of empowerment they heard growing up and applying them not only to the workplace, but home, as well — plus a healthy dose of entitlement that seems common to their generation. — JUST SAYING, IN WISCONSIN DEAR ABBY: Male reader here. Gone are the days of the stay-at-home wife who takes care of the house and raises the children. I’m as guilty of those preconceptions as anyone. I thought marriage meant being totally devoted to your spouse and you discussed everything.

I now believe both parties in a relationship have financial responsibilities to the other. In my first marriage, the majority of financial responsibilities fell on me. The financial obligations in my second marriage are different. We have a separate maintenance agreement. I pay only part of our living expenses. I can spend whatever I want, when I want, on whatever I want. This has prevented many disagreements. I think the way to handle finances in a relationship is a rock-solid legal agreement and a lot of premarital counseling. Then there are no surprises. — J.G. IN TEXAS DEAR ABBY: I’m 32, recently married. I earn more than my husband, and I’m better at managing money. We plan to set up a joint account for household expenses, joint vacations, etc., and maintain individual accounts for whatever money is left. That way, we have a certain amount of independence and freedom. We don’t consider our relationship to be disposable. But when you grow up like we did and don’t marry until your 30s, you live a considerable amount of your life independently. We are happy with this arrangement. — MODERN MARRIAGE IN MICHIGAN

Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars





GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You will be heard, whether you are debating the pros and cons of an emotional situation or making plans for the weekend. Your sense of direction could be thrown off-kilter, but not for long. Schedule a meeting or make time for a discussion. Tonight: Hang out with friends. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Take a back seat for the moment. You will want to take action, but only after you feel as though you have a complete understanding of what is going on. You also might not have as firm a grasp on a money matter as you think you do. Tonight: Keep it relaxing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Listen to news with a touch of cynicism, and you will be just fine. Go with the flow, and everything will fall right into place. A long-distance call could change your pace and your thoughts. Take another look at what is going on now. Tonight: Where your friends are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Others might not intend to drop the ball, but that is what happens. You could feel out of sorts when dealing with a new love interest. Logic will not work here. A partnership will be instrumental in making this situation work. Tonight: Say “thank you” over dinner. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Reach out for more information. Someone you count on could present an alternative perspective. Do not make any snap judgments — just listen. Something unexpected could throw you off. Tonight: No matter what you do, make sure there is great music around you.

By Leigh Rubin


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Deal with someone directly. You might not be as comfortable with this person as you would like. Tension is likely to build when a project takes an unexpected turn. You might not know what to do. Just step back and observe for now. Tonight: Visit with a favorite person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Defer to others, as you might have an exciting detour in your plans. Use caution with money, especially if someone tries to manipulate you into his or her type of thinking. A loved one could be delightful yet distracting. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Pace yourself, as you could have more to do than you originally might have anticipated. A domestic matter is likely to cause some upset. Don’t worry — you will handle it well. Use care when dealing with a grumpy friend. Tonight: Run errands first. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHYour playfulness will emerge. Your easygoing attitude could be distressing to someone who is determined to have a situation work a certain way. Laughter will surround an interaction involving a grumpy person. Tonight: Add more spice to a relationship. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You could be happier than you thought possible when you walk away from a controlling friend. Try to open up more, as you might be keeping a lot to yourself. Use good sense with a money matter. A return call could take too long for your taste. Tonight: At home.

An update on closed captioning Dear Heloise: In a recent column, a reader mentioned a closed-captioning feature, and you commented, “Some TVs do not have this feature.” I want all of your readers to know that closed captioning is required by law on all TVs over 13 inches, and on all digital cable boxes. It may not be as easy to set up as simply pressing the mute button, but it may come in handy for some people. Refer to the instruction manuals. You can leave the sound up while captions are going. — Karen D. in Nebraska Karen, thanks for the update. Please say “Hi” to my friends at your paper, the Omaha World-Herald. All analog TVs 13 inches or larger are required by the government (since 1993) to have closed captioning. All digital television receivers also are required (since 2002) to have it. But for those with older TVs (as many of us have!), maybe it’s time for a new one! — Heloise Did carrots cause a spark? Dear Heloise: I was cooking carrots in the microwave the other day and noticed some sparks. I know not to place metal in the microwave (including gold-trimmed dishes), but carrots?! Please explain. — Cynthia D., via email Yes, it could have been the carrots! Those sparks are from “arcing.” Arcing usually happens when microwaves react with something metal. But according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, arcing also can occur when you cook hot dogs and carrots. How? Hot dogs contain additives and salts that can be unevenly mixed, and carrots can still have minerals on them from the dirt they were grown in. The microwaves react to these things by arcing. If arcing happens, turn off the microwave ASAP! This will prevent damage to it, and maybe prevent a fire! If it is caused by food, finish cooking that food on the stove. And if it is caused by metal on a dish (which you know NOT to use), use a microwave-safe one. — Heloise

A baby born today has a Sun in Cancer if born before 5:41 p.m. (PDT). Afterward, the Sun will be in Leo. The Moon is in Gemini all day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, July 22, 2014:This year you take a bold step forward to go after what you want. Your focus on your goals will be instrumental to your success and happiness in the coming months. Your immediate circle of friends expands. If you are single, you could meet someone through a new friend. In any case, friendship could be involved with a new love affair. If you are attached, the two of you have quite a good time together. Often you act like newlyweds. Taking plenty of time alone together as a couple will prove to be beneficial. GEMINI is a loyal friend. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Initial confusion is likely to subside once you look at an issue as a control game or a power play. You will know exactly what to do and why you need to proceed in this direction. A friend or loved one’s mental or physical fatigue might be irritating. Tonight: Love the moment. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You might be evaluating the importance of continuing as you have been. A problem involving your family could arise. A purchase might be necessary, and it could force you to wait on a matter you have been pursuing. Tonight: Take a hard look at your budget.

DEAR READERS: On April 11, I printed a letter from “Wondering in Washington,” a man asking why young men in general today have the attitude that “any money I earn is mine” in a marriage or live-in situation. He said when he married, he and his wife considered what they earned to be “theirs” — not his or hers. When I asked my “younger readers” to chime in, I was inundated. Some excerpts: DEAR ABBY: My husband was 26 and I was 24 when we got married. To me, how young couples handle money says a lot about their attitude toward marriage. My mother always said, “If you can’t trust a man with your money, why would you trust him with your heart?” I kept that in mind when I was dating, so when my boyfriend and I married, we didn’t have serious underlying issues like addiction, compulsive spending, etc. — MOM OF 2 IN SEATTLE DEAR ABBY: My first husband controlled all the money, my pay and his. He bought what HE wanted, but didn’t always pay the mortgage or utilities. In my second marriage, my money is my money and his money is his. If I earn 60 percent of the income, I pay 60 percent of the shared bills. Whatever is left is up to my own discretion to spend, and the same

Pet Tails 10 basset hound pups rescued in Missouri by Humane Society ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Humane Society of Missouri says its Animal Cruelty Task Force has rescued 10 critically ill basset hound puppies from a Missouri breeding facility. The dogs were taken Friday from a facility in Douglas County. Authorities say all 10

dogs are very thin. Some have pneumonia, parasites, ear and eye infections. Three other puppies in the litter died before the Humane Society’s involvement. The Humane Society says it is pushing for prosecution of the operator of the facility.
