In the news Searchers find missing hunter





ANCHORAGE (AP) — A hunter missing in Cook Inlet for two days has been found. KTUU reports 41-year-old George Green was picked up by a Coast Guard helicopter Monday morning. The agency says he is in good condition. He was found about 1.5 miles inland east of the Little Susitna River. Green left the Anchorage at noon Saturday in a 10-foot fiberglass skiff. He had planned to boat to Port MacKenzie and return Saturday night. The Coast Guard, Anchorage firefighters and Alaska State Troopers searched for Green on Sunday without success.

Local municipal candidates finalized By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion

to present to all of the agencies along with the estimated cost of the 4-mile project, which he received Friday. Ostrander did not have a dollar amount readily available for the Clarion Monday, but he said the cost is within the funds available. The plan proposes two typical 14-foot top road sections — one for the upland areas and one for the wetland areas. The upland areas would use geotextile as a sub-base for the gravel.

The filing period for local government seats closed Friday and the Kenai Peninsula Borough and cities of Kenai and Soldotna have finalized its list of candidates.

Parker is the North American representative for the company and returned from maintenance and flight training on the UAV in France about a month ago. Parker plans to integrate the UAV with collision avoidance radar developed at the University of Denver of which he has the exclusive patent rights.

OK for North Road plan sought Borough asks for exclusion from Federal Highway Administration By KAYLEE OSOWSKI Peninsula Clarion

The Kenai Peninsula Borough is taking steps to extend the North Road past its end at the Captain Cook State Recreation Area. The borough administration is pursuing a scaled-down version of the original North Road Extension Project plan, which was to build out the road to Point Possession, about 26 miles. Officials are now chasing a

categorical exclusion for the proposed downsized 4-mile extension from the road’s current terminus. A categorical exclusion from the Federal Highway Administration would allow the project to move forward without a costly environmental impact statement. While Chief of Staff Paul Ostrander updated Nikiski residents last week at the Nikiski Community Council meeting, saying the borough has received verbal non-objections to the

project from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the Kenai Watershed Forum and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge, it is in the process of seeking letters from the agencies. If the agencies supply letters of non-objection to the borough, the Department of Transportation would then request the categorical exclusion from the Federal Highway Administration. A concept plan for the proposed project has also been drafted, which Ostrander plans

According to the release, the four men, all from out of state, set out from the Kasilof launch when a current caught their boat broadside and overturned it almost immediately, and dumped the men into the river. All four men were wearing life jackets.

Responders rescued four men from the Kasilof River after their boat overturned Monday morning. Central Emergency Services responded at 7 a.m. to the Kasilof Bridge and the Sterling Highway to find the four men trapped at the pillar of the bridge in the middle of the river. Two of the men were sitting on the icebreaker under the bridge while the other two were stuck on the side of the overturned boat, according to a CES press release.

Murkowski says she’ll work to elect GOP senator By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press

ANCHORAGE — Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Monday questioned how Alaskans have benefited from having a Democratic senator the past few years. Murkowski told reporters she would work hard after Tuesday’s primary to help ensure Republicans win the seat held by Democrat Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election. Begich defeated longtime Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens for the seat in 2008. In a speech to the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce Monday, Murkowski said things such as limited development opportunities in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska and federal plans that ignore the potential for drilling on the coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge are like sanctions on Alaska. The state has had a mixed delegation for six years, she told reporters. “Tell me how having a Democrat in the Senate, working with a Democrat administration, has benefited the state of Alaska,” Murkowski added later. “I’ve yet to see it.” Begich spokesman Max Croes said Alaskans benefit “from having a voice in every discussion in Washington that knows Alaska, defends the Second Amendment and protects

the rights of Alaska women.” By email, he said Begich helped secure permits that Shell needed for Arctic drilling; pushed the administration for permits at Greens Creek, Red Dog and other mines; successfully fought against mail rate increases on rural Alaska; and has been part of the ongoing effort to bring two squadrons of F-35 fighter planes to Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks. On a number of Alaska issues, the delegation, which also includes Republican Rep. Don Young, has worked together. The issue of cooperation has been a prickly point in this campaign, with Begich referencing his work with Murkowski in campaign ads, and Murkowski saying he should run on his own record. Young told Kodiak radio station KMXT he thought Begich has done a “good job.” “I think some of his votes were wrong. But again I’ve known him since he was 10 years old and watched his growth. Everybody has to make up his own decision how they’d vote and not vote.” At the state Republican convention in May, Young said his desire to get a Republican elected to replace Begich wasn’t personal. He said it was about ensuring that Harry Reid no longer was majority leader. Murkowski blamed Reid for much of the gridlock in the Senate and said the current Re-





publican leader, Mitch McConnell, has assured GOP members he would allow for a return to a more normal course of business if he ran the Senate, including allowing for amendments on bills and letting the committee process play out. “I think it’s critically important that we reform the Senate, and you can best reform the Senate by change in leadership,” Murkowski said. If Republicans take over, Murkowski said Alaska also would benefit from having her serve as chair of the Senate energy committee, a post for which she would be in line. While she has not publicly said who she is voting for in Tuesday’s primary, Murkowski said she had two good friends running, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and former state attorney general Dan Sullivan. She did not mention tea party favorite Joe Miller, who she beat with a general-election write-in campaign after he defeated her in the 2010 Senate primary. During her write-in,

Murkowski said the focus should not be on party labels but on what’s best for Alaska. She said she remained committed to bipartisan cooperation in Washington.

What Others Say

Secondhand shops have chance to be local heroes Operators of Juneau’s secondhand

stores have the opportunity to be heroes, even if they’re the reluctant kind. The 7-2 passage of an ordinance by Assembly members this week will require shops that re-sell electronics, jewelry and gold valued at more than $50 to hold those items for at least 30 days. The reasoning is that if stolen goods are sold to secondhand shops, the wait will allow crime victims time to retrieve their valuables. With the exception of Juneau Gold Buyer owner Dylan Hammons, the businesses that will be most impacted aren’t in favor of changing the rules. Holding merchandise for a month will hurt business, they say. These individuals are looking at the situation from the wrong angle. What’s bad for business is when a community knows a local shop is used to fence stolen goods but the owner does nothing to prevent it. When any store puts the almighty dollar ahead of what’s right, the perception that spreads from one resident to the next is that the business, its owners and employees shouldn’t be trusted. In short, it’s bad for a shop’s image and its community relations. On the other hand, if these businesses can reunite community members with their precious — and sometimes irreplaceable — belongings, imagine the kind of goodwill and community endorsement an act like that will lead to. It’s the kind of PR you can’t buy with an advertisement. Instead of being viewed as the villains who bought someone’s stolen property and resold it for a profit, Juneau’s secondhand stores now have the chance to play the role of hero. — Juneau Empire, Aug. 15

Robin Williams: Comedy and tragedy

Robin Williams made me cry. Like his mentor, the late Jonathan Winters, Williams, who committed suicide Monday, made me laugh so intensely tears would come to my eyes. Williams’ death made headlines and led TV newscasts. His comedic genius diverted us from stories about terrorism and other sadness in the world. That’s what comedy does. It makes us forget our troubles — national, international and personal — and for a moment, embrace happiness. Williams, who seemed full of joy on the outside, was apparently tormented on the inside. He suffered from clinical depression. An estimated 19 million Americans suffer from depression, according to the Mayo Clinic website. He may have tried to conquer it in the ‘70s and ‘80s by selfmedicating with cocaine, but the drug, while creating an intense high, is often followed quickly by “intense depression,” according to the Foundation for a Drug-Free World. Many people misunderstand clinical depression. They think because someone has wealth and fame, or circumstances better than others, they should be happy, or at least content. Robin Williams wasn’t normal. While he made others laugh — and in his serious roles, such as that of Sean Maguire in “Good Will Hunting,” for which he won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, con-

veyed profound and timeless virtues — he was deeply troubled. Ironically, his part in this film was that of a psychologist. President Obama referred to Williams’ numerous and diverse film roles: “Robin Cal Thomas Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie, a nanny ... and everything in between. But he was one of a kind.” Indeed. Rolling Stone magazine reported; “Last month, Williams checked himself into a rehab facility to ‘fine-tune and focus on his continued commitment, of which he remains extremely proud,’ his rep said at the time.” I asked Dave Berg, the former co-producer of “The Tonight Show,” for his greatest memory of Williams, who appeared on the show many times with Jay Leno. He sent this email: “I once brought my two young children to “The Tonight Show” to meet Robin. They had watched the video of “Hook” many times, and were mesmerized by his performance as Peter Pan in the 1991 film. When Robin came out of his dressing room, and saw my 3-year-old son David and my 7-year-old daughter Melissa, he immediately crouched down, so he

could be eye level with them. David asked Robin how he was able to fly in the film. Without missing a beat, Robin answered: ‘A little magic and very tight pants.’ Both the kids and the adults laughed, but for different reasons because Robin was playing to both audiences. That’s true comedic genius.” Psychiatrist Keith Ablow, appearing on Fox News, said “95 percent” of people with clinical depression are treatable. Whether Robin Williams was among the 5 percent who aren’t, or there were other factors, we may never know. In one of his most profound roles, that of poetry teacher John Keating in the 1989 film “Dead Poets Society,” Williams told his students: “We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.” It’s sad to see someone who could make so many people laugh suffer from depression. Worse, his death and the loss of his talent add to the general gloominess that hangs over much of the world. Readers may email Cal Thomas at

Compromise: Congress can still make deals By ANDREW TAYLOR Associated Press

AP News Analysis

WASHINGTON — Washington may be a sea of dysfunction, but the current Congress is offering a few reminders about how a bill becomes a law: compromise. That’s been in short supply as lawmakers have tried to tackle a surge of Central American youths entering the U.S. from Mexico and find a long-term fix to funding the nation’s highways. And more compromise will be needed next month to keep the government open past September, renew expired tax breaks, reauthorize the Export-Import Bank and extend the government’s terrorism insurance program. After that, the coming retirement of veteran dealmakers like Reps. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., and Dave Camp, R-Mich., may only make compromise tougher. However, when it came to improving veterans’ health care, overhauling job training programs, authorizing water projects and “unlocking” cellphones for use in other networks, Congress managed to get the job done. The recent wave of lawmaking fell into two broad categories: bills Congress had to do to avoid embarrassment and less controversial measures lawmakers decided they wanted. The must-do bills included $16 billion to improve veterans’ access to health care and a short-term $11 billion measure to prevent federal funding for highway projects and transit systems from drying up this month. Voting against either effort could have cost lawmakers in November’s elections. The veterans bill came together when Democrats agreed to lower the price tag and Republicans accepted adding the additional cost to the national debt. On the highway bill, Senate Democrats bowed to House Republicans on financing it through anticipated revenues the government might or might not reap a decade from now. C




program. He seems likely to lose to the Senate this fall when Congress renews the government program that backstops insurance companies in the event of a major terrorist attack. And he faces an uphill battle against Democrats and establishment Republicans to kill the Export-Import Bank, which helps finance exports by U.S. companies such as Boeing and General Electric. “We do have more ideological people taking these ranking member and chair positions,” said Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota, former House Agriculture Committee chairman and now its top Democrat. With the departure of Miller, Harkin, Waxman and Camp, and Reps. Eric Cantor, R-Va., and John Dingell, D-Mich., Congress is losing some of its most accomplished deal-cutters. As a result of rapid turnover, the concentration of lawmaking power has moved to leadership offices instead of committees. The increasing polarization on Capitol Hill also contributes to fewer lawmakers knowing how the game is played. “It involves a lot of patience, perseverance. Things always don’t happen right away,” Waxman said. “The key is that you need compromise. And unfortunately, there are a lot of new Republicans — tea party, right-wing Republicans — who think that compromise is a dirty word and talking to the Democrats is like complicity with the enemy.” Waxman’s fingerprints are all over the Affordable Care Act, major Medicaid expansions, food labeling, the Clean Air Act and the advent of generic drugs. “Except for the Affordable Care Act, every bill that I authored that became law had some Republican support,” Waxman said. “I always worked with them to try to find a way to make it bipartisan.”

Those weren’t the only deals in Congress over the last couple of months. Legislation on job training programs advanced after House Republicans dropped their most ideological demands and worked closely with Democratic veterans like Rep. George Miller of California and Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa. Both came to Congress in the mid-1970s and are retiring at year’s end. A water resources measure, sealed in May and signed by President Barack Obama in June, was the product of the traditionally bipartisan Senate Environment and Public Works and House Transportation and Infrastructure committees. The bill gave individual lawmakers political wins for projects such as dredging the Port of Savannah in Georgia, even if it wasn’t on the political radar nationally. Still, several important bills face trouble as some committee chairmen pursue ideology over pragmatism. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, a Texas Republican who heads the House Financial Services Committee, won a tight 30-27 vote in his committee for a bill that would change home financing by eliminating mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It is unlikely to advance further this year. Hensarling, a favorite of the right and former head of the conservative Republican Study Committee, has appeared uninterested in cutting deals with Democrats. That puts his panel at odds with the counterpart Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee and its tradition of handling bills in bipartisan fashion. On some issues, Hesnarling probably won’t get his way. His leadership was undermined this year when coastal state lawmakers succeeded in Andrew Taylor has reported on Conweakening recent changes to the government’s much-criticized flood insurance gress since 1990.

Nation & World


Ukraine: Dozens killed in shelling of convoy By NATALIYA VASILYEVA Associated Press

KIEV, Ukraine — Ukraine accused pro-Russia separatists of killing dozens of civilians in an attack early Monday on a convoy fleeing a besieged rebel-held city. The rebels denied any attack took place, while the U.S. confirmed the shelling of the convoy but said it did not know who was responsible. The refugees were attacked with Grad rockets and other weapons imported from Russia as their convoy traveled on the main road leading from Russia to the rebel-held city of Luhansk, Col. Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraine’s National Security Council, told reporters. “Many people were killed, among them women and children,” Lysenko said of the attack, which occurred between the towns of Khryashchuvate and Novosvitlivka. “We are not able to count the death toll at this point.” When asked about a rough estimate of deaths, he said

‘If someone was killed, it wasn’t us but the Ukrainian military.’ — Andrei Purgin, Donetsk rebel deputy “dozens.” Oleksiy Dmytrashkivsky, a spokesman for the Ukrainian government’s military operation in the east, later told The Associated Press that 15 bodies had been recovered from the smoldering vehicles and servicemen were collecting the body parts of at least 10 more people. Donetsk rebel chief Alexander Zakharchenko insisted that no such attack had taken place. His deputy, Andrei Purgin, said he had no information about an attack and insisted it was not by his forces. “If someone was killed, it wasn’t us but the Ukrainian military,” Purgin told the AP. The road where Ukraine said Monday’s attack took place has been the scene of heavy fighting in recent days as Ukrainian

forces try to seal off supply routes into Luhansk from Russia. It’s also the same road that would likely be the route taken by a controversial Russian aid convoy if Ukraine allows it into the country. The war zone in eastern Ukraine is effectively off limits for journalists and lacks power in many places, limiting citizens from easily providing their own reports. All this makes independent verification impossible. The United States condemned the attack, but said it was unable to confirm who was responsible. “We strongly condemn the shelling and rocketing of a convoy that was bearing internally displaced persons in Luhansk and express our condolences to the families of the victims,”

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters in Washington. “All sides must take every precaution to protect innocent lives. We are unable to confirm reports of who was responsible for the shelling and rocketing.” Fighting between government troops and pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine has forced nearly 344,000 people to flee their homes, according to the United Nations, a number that has only grown as the humanitarian situation in rebelheld cities deteriorates. Running water and electricity have either been cut off completely in cities like Luhansk or are getting more limited by the day. The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said more than 22,000 people fled the main rebel-held city of Donetsk last week compared to 6,200 the week before. And city officials have released even higher numbers: Donetsk has seen at least 300,000 of its pre-war population of 1 million leave their homes, while

Luhansk has only 250,000 of its 420,000 people fled, local authorities say. Residents of Luhansk have had no running water, electrical power or phone connections for 16 days, and basic food is in short supply, leading to long lines outside shops as fighting continues in and around the city. In Donetsk, the largest city in rebel hands, several houses were hit by artillery fire over the weekend in the Budyonovsky district, which stands next to a rebel encampment. One house was still smoldering when an AP reporter visited Monday. The rocket hit the yard and set fire to a tree, which in turn set several nearby buildings ablaze. The fire destroyed the cramped, one-story home of Nina Saltanova, 79, and her paralyzed 56-year-old daughter. Asked if she wanted to leave the city, she despaired. “I have nowhere to go. My daughter is disabled,” Saltanova said as she tried to salvage scraps of clothing from the charred debris. “She can’t walk. Because of

her I can’t go anywhere.” Tensions have been high over the past week as Russia said it plans to send a massive aid convoy to help those in rebel-held eastern Ukraine. The more than 200 trucks, now parked in a Russian field by the border, have been viewed with suspicion by Ukraine and the West, especially since Ukrainian forces have been winning back significant territory from the rebels in the last few weeks. Ukraine suggests the aid convoy could be used by Russia to send help to the separatists — or to delay the government’s advances with a timely cease-fire. The International Committee of the Red Cross, which is expected to take responsibility for the Russian convoy when it enters Ukraine, said Monday that it was still waiting for security guarantees from all sides. Russia’s foreign minister, meanwhile, said in Berlin that he expects the Russian aid mission to enter Ukraine in the near future.

Obama: Iraq has regained control of Mosul dam By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer





WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama hailed the recapture of Mosul dam Monday as a “major step forward” as a barrage of U.S. airstrikes helped Kurdish and Iraqi forces score the biggest victory of its counteroffensive against the Islamic State militants. Obama also urged the badly fractured and largely dysfunctional Iraqi government to move quickly to forge a united front and give hope to Sunni tribes who’ve been marginalized. Obama noted last week’s

decision by Nouri al-Maliki to step down as Iraq’s prime minister, a move that raised hopes a new government could roll back Iraq’s powerful Sunni insurgency and prevent the country from splitting apart. “They’ve got to get this done because the wolf’s at the door,” the president said. Speaking from the White House briefing room, Obama said he was pleased the United States had given Iraqi security forces and the Kurdish militia an important boost in Mosul. But he stressed the importance of political progress and said it is imperative that Iraq become a

viable partner for the U.S. The U.S. will continue to assist Iraqi security forces with a limited military campaign designed to protect American personnel and facilities and to alleviate humanitarian crises created by Islamic State militants, he said. He added that it is not for the U.S. to be a surrogate air force for Baghdad and it is up to Iraqis to create a sustainable peace. “We’ve got a national security interest in making sure our people are protected and in making sure that a savage group that seems willing to slaughter

people for no rhyme or reason other than they have not kowtowed -- that a group like that is contained because ultimately it can pose a threat to us,” Obama told reporters. The Islamic extremists captured the Mosul dam on Aug. 7. Obama said if the dam on the Tigris River had been breached it could have had catastrophic consequences and endangered American Embassy personnel in Baghdad. The president gave no indication of how long the U.S. military will remain engaged in Iraq. Washington is urgently providing arms and assistance





to Iraqi security forces as well as Kurdish fighters as they seek to reverse Islamic State gains, he said. Obama has said he will not send U.S. ground forces to fight in Iraq. U.S. Central Command said American fighters, bombers and drone aircraft conducted 15 strikes Monday around the dam, hitting Islamic State fighting positions as well as an antiaircraft artillery gun and other weaponry of the group that has captured wide swaths northern and western Iraq this summer. The White House notified Congress by letter Sunday that U.S. warplanes were engaged

in strikes aimed at helping Iraq regain control of the dam. The letter said “failure of the Mosul dam could threaten the lives of large numbers of civilians, threaten U.S. personnel and facilities — including the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad — and prevent the Iraqi government from providing crucial services to the Iraqi populace.” A Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, said Monday the U.S. had no indication of the dam’s imminent failure but is determined to prevent that possibility, which would pose a humanitarian disaster for people along the Tigris river.

Pope OKs protecting Iraq minorities

Around the World Amid 2016 speculation, Hillary Clinton attending steak fry in Iowa next month

By NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press

DES MOINES, Iowa — Hillary Rodham Clinton will headline a high-profile fundraiser next month in the nation’s first presidential caucus state of Iowa, creating a big campaign splash as Democrats scramble to hold a key Senate seat in November and the former secretary of state considers a campaign of her own in 2016. Former President Bill Clinton and Mrs. Clinton will attend retiring Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry in Indianola on Sept. 14, Iowa Democrats said Monday. It will be the former first lady’s first appearance in Iowa since 2008 when she finished a disappointing third in the state’s presidential caucuses. Clinton has urged Democrats to mobilize for November’s midterm elections and party officials said she would likely appear at other events around the country to help the party’s major fundraising committees. And Harkin’s steak fry, an event that draws thousands of grassroots activists each year, and future presidential campaign staff and volunteers, could be among the biggest, potentially serving as the unofficial start of Clinton’s second presidential bid. Early polls show her as the leading candidate to succeed President Barack Obama, her onetime rival. Clinton is “looking forward to campaigning for her Democratic friends and colleagues and to helping the effort to move America forward,” her spokesman Nick Merrill said, adding that she’d “help raise money for important races in Iowa.”

ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE — Pope Francis on Monday said efforts to stop Islamic militants from attacking religious minorities in Iraq are legitimate but said the international community — and not just one country — should decide how to intervene. Francis was asked if he approved of the unilateral U.S. airstrikes on militants of the Islamic State group, who have captured swaths of northern and western Iraq and northeastern Syria and have forced minority Christians and others to either convert to Islam or flee their homes. “In these cases, where there is an unjust aggression, I can only say that it is licit to stop the unjust aggressor,” Francis said. “I underscore the verb ‘stop.’ I’m not saying ‘bomb’ or ‘make war,’ just ‘stop.’ And the means that can be used to stop them must be evaluated.” Francis also said he and his advisers were considering whether he might go to northern Iraq himself to show solidarity with persecuted Christians. But he said he was holding off for now on a decision. The pope’s comments were significant because the Vatican has vehemently opposed any military intervention in recent years. Pope Paul VI famously uttered the words “War never again, never again war” at the United Nations in 1965 as the Vietnam War raged, a refrain that has been repeated by ev-

No arrest warrant coming after Perry indictment; he continues 2016 voter courtship AUSTIN, Texas — A judge isn’t issuing an arrest warrant for Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a court official said Monday, and the Republican is planning to continue galloping around the country gearing up for a possible 2016 presidential run — despite being indicted on two felony counts of abuse of power back home. Perry on Friday became the first Texas governor since 1917 to be indicted, and is facing charges that carry a maximum sentence of 109 years in prison for carrying out a threat to veto funding for the state’s public integrity unit last summer. Perry has emphatically denied all wrongdoing. His attorneys scheduled a Monday afternoon news conference in Austin to discuss their next moves. Linda Estrada, a Travis County grand jury clerk, said that the judge overseeing the case, Bert Richardson, decided against issuing an arrest warrant. Instead, Perry will receive a summons which has not been issued yet. He eventually will have to be booked and fingerprinted.

Former Vt. Sen. James Jeffords, whose move from GOP in 2001 tipped Senate power, dies MONTPELIER, Vt. — Former Vermont U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, who in 2001 tipped control of the Senate when he quit the Republican Party to become an independent, died Monday. He was 80. Jeffords died in Washington, said Diane Derby, a former aide to Jeffords. He had been in declining health, she said. Jeffords had announced in 2005 that he would not seek a fourth term, citing his and his wife’s health problems. “I have had an enormously satisfying career, one that I would not have traded for any other,” Jeffords said when he retired. “In no other job do you have both the freedom and obligation to solve problems and help people on a daily basis.” In a statement, President Barack Obama said Jeffords devoted his life to public service.

Private militias complicate law-enforcement situation on Texas border MISSION, Texas — On a recent moonlit night, Border Patrol agents began rounding up eight immigrants hiding in and around a canal near the Rio Grande. A state trooper soon arrived to help. Then out of the darkness emerged seven more armed men in fatigues. Agents assumed the camouflaged crew that joined in pulling the immigrants from the canal’s milky green waters was a tactical unit from the Texas Department of Public Safety. Only later did they learn that the men belonged to the Texas Militia, a group that dresses like a SWAT team and carries weapons but has no law-enforcement training or authority of any kind. The situation ended peacefully with the immigrants getting arrested and the Border Patrol advising the militia members “to properly and promptly” identify themselves anytime they encounter law-enforcement officers. But the episode was unsettling enough for the Border Patrol to circulate an “issue paper” warning other agents. The presence of armed militia members working on their own in a region known for human smuggling, drug smuggling and illegal immigration has added one more variable to an already complex and tense situation. Although the Aug. 6 incident in Mission resulted in no harm, it’s not hard to imagine deadlier outcomes throughout the Rio Grande Valley, a wide area patrolled by more than 3,000 border agents, as well as hundreds of state troopers, game wardens, deputies and local police officers. Gov. Rick Perry is also sending as many as 1,000 National Guard troops.

‘In these cases, where there is an unjust aggression, I can only say that it is licit to stop the unjust aggressor. I underscore the verb ‘stop.’ I’m not saying ‘bomb’ or ‘make war,’ just ‘stop.’ And the means that can be used to stop them must be evaluated.’ — Pope Francis ery pope since. St. John Paul II actively tried to head off the Iraq war on the grounds that a “preventive” war couldn’t be justified. He repeatedly called for negotiations to resolve the crisis over Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait a decade prior. Francis himself staged a global prayer and fast for peace when the U.S. was threatening airstrikes on Syria last year. But in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks — in the Vatican’s mind an “unjust aggression” — John Paul defended the “legitimate fight against terrorism,” and the right of nations to defend themselves against terrorist attacks. He did though call for restraint and the Vatican subsequently focused its position on emphasizing the need to eradicate the root causes of terrorism: poverty and oppression. Recently, the Vatican has been increasingly showing support for military intervention in Iraq, given that Christians are being directly targeted because of their faith and that Christian communities, which have existed for 2,000 years, have been emptied as a result of the extremists’ onslaught.

The U.S. began launching airstrikes against IS fighters on Aug. 8, allowing Kurdish forces to fend off an advance on their regional capital of Irbil and to help tens of thousands of religious minorities escape. When the Vatican’s ambassador to Iraq, Monsignor Giorgio Lingua, was asked about the U.S. airstrikes, he told Vatican Radio that it was unfortunate that the situation had gotten to this point “but it’s good when you’re able to at the very least remove weapons from these people who have no scruples.” The Vatican’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, went further, saying “Maybe military action is necessary at this moment.” Church teaching allows for “just wars,” when military force can be morally justified under certain circumstances. The four main criteria, all of which must be met, include that the damage inflicted by the aggressor must be “lasting, grave and certain,” that all other means haven’t worked, that there must be real prospects for success and that the intervention must not produce results that are worse

than the original evil. Finally, church teaching holds that the responsibility for determining if the four conditions have been met rests with the judgment of “those who have responsibility for the common good.” Francis was thus essentially applying church teaching on the “just war” doctrine to the Iraq situation. But, he said, in history, such “excuses” to stop an unjust aggression have been used by world powers to justify a “war of conquest” in which an entire people have been taken over. “One nation alone cannot judge how you stop this, how you stop an unjust aggressor,” he said, apparently referring to the United States. “After World War II, the idea of the United Nations came about: It’s there that you must discuss ‘Is there an unjust aggression?

Egypt: No deal yet on Gaza cease-fire, more talks By MOHAMMED DARAGHMEH Associated Press

CAIRO — Egypt late Monday announced a 24-hour extension in talks between Israel and the Hamas militant group aimed at salvaging a long-term arrangement that would allow reconstruction of the Gaza Strip following a monthlong war that killed more than 2,000 people. The announcement came just minutes before a temporary truce was set to expire at midnight, averting a resumption of the fighting that has caused devastating damage across Gaza and disrupted life throughout southern Israel. “Palestinians and Israelis agreed on extending the ceasefire by 24 hours to continue current negotiations,” the Egyptian government said in a statement. Palestinian and Israeli officials confirmed they had accepted Egypt’s request for an extension. A Palestinian negotiator said the sides had exchanged draft proposals for a long-term truce that were to be addressed during the 24-hour extension in talks. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media. Since last week, Egypt has been hosting indirect talks between Israel and Hamas aimed at ending the war. Gaza Health Ministry official Ashraf al-Kidra said

National Guard called into Ferguson, Missouri FERGUSON, Mo. — Missouri’s governor is lifting a neighborhood curfew but calling in the National Guard to help restore order in a St. Louis suburb where a police officer’s fatal shooting of an unarmed 18-year-old has sparked heated protests. Gov. Jay Nixon called up the troops early Monday following an overnight clash between police and what he called “a violent criminal element intent upon terrorizing the community.” The unrest follows the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The neighborhood had been under a midnight-to-5 a.m. curfew since Saturday, but Nixon lifted the curfew Monday. He says the National Guard will be under the direction of the Highway Patrol, which he put in charge of overseeing protests.

CBS analyst Phil Simms and NBC’s Dungy tell AP they will try not to use ‘Redskins’ on TV NEW YORK — Two influential NFL voices — including CBS lead analyst Phil Simms, who will handle Washington’s Week 4 game — said Monday they likely won’t use the term “Redskins” when discussing the franchise. “My very first thought is it will be Washington the whole game,” Simms told The Associated Press Monday. Simms will work the Thursday night package the network acquired this season and will have Giants-Redskins on Sept. 25. He isn’t taking sides in the debate over whether Washington’s nickname is offensive or racist. But he says he is sensitive to the complaints about the name, and his instincts now are to not use Redskins in his announcing. — The Associated Press C




Monday the death toll from the fighting had jumped to over 2,000 Palestinians, the majority of them civilians, while U.N. officials, who often take more time to verify figures, put the number at 1,976. Thousands of homes were destroyed, and tens of thousands of people remain huddled in U.N. shelters. Israel lost 67 people, all but three of them soldiers. Egyptian mediators shuttled between the sides Monday, but gaps appeared to remain wide. Hamas is demanding an end to a seven-year Israeli-Egyptian blockade of Gaza that has devastated the local economy. Israel wants guarantees that Hamas, which fired thousands of rockets into Israel during the fighting, will be disarmed. In an apparent attempt to pressure Hamas, Egypt said early Monday it would co-host an international fundraising conference for Gaza, but only if a deal is reached. Israel, meanwhile, said in recent months it had arrested nearly 100 Hamas operatives in the West Bank in an alleged plot to topple Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The Gaza blockade, imposed after Hamas seized control of Gaza in 2007, remains the main stumbling block. It has greatly limited the movement of Palestinians in and out of the territory of 1.8 million people, restricted the flow of goods into Gaza and

blocked virtually all exports. Israel says the blockade is needed to prevent arms smuggling, but critics say the measures have amounted to collective punishment. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu already said this week he would not allow Hamas to win a diplomatic victory at the negotiating table. An Egyptian compromise proposal has called for an easing of the blockade to allow more movement of goods and people in and out of Gaza. Although it would not disarm

Hamas, it would give Abbas, whose forces were routed by Hamas in the 2007 takeover, a foothold back in Gaza and put him in charge of border crossings and internationally backed reconstruction efforts. Larger issues, including Israel’s calls for disarmament and Hamas demands to reopen Gaza’s sea and airports, would be left for later talks. An official in Abbas’ office said the Palestinian leader was supposed to arrive in Qatar, the base for top Hamas leaders, on Tuesday and stay until Friday.

pass,” he said. Any construction on the road is at least a year out, Ostrander said. However, because the borough has never gone through the process to get a categorical exclusion, putting a timeline on the project is difficult. At the meeting, some area property owners expressed interest in a parking lot at the end of the road, a concept that was not included in the plan. However, Ostrander said it is something the borough will pursue in the project. “How that’s going to work, I don’t know,” he said. “A parking lot within the existing right-

of-way wouldn’t be sufficient for what they need it for so … the identification of what land that would be built on is something that needs to be done.” Also at the meeting, residents expressed concern about the possible closure of Jacob’s Ladder Drive, which provides beach access. Ostrander said if possible, the administration would like to maintain beach access in that area via Jacob’s Ladder or another route. In 1996 the borough received $6 million in federal dollars earmarked for the North Road Extension project, of which about $5 million remain following a

mid-2000s environmental assessment. The assessment determined an EIS was necessary, which would cost more than what remained for the project. “That’s the reason that the original scope of work wasn’t feasible because they determined that an environmental impact statement is necessary for the entire 26 miles of road,” he said. “That environmental impact statement would have eaten up all of the federal earmark that we have.” Kaylee Osowski can be reached at kaylee.osowski@

Fermented fish investigated after death LOWER KALSKAG, — An autopsy has been ordered for a man from a Kuskokwim River village who complained of health problems after eating fermented fish. Alaska State Troopers say 59-year-old Allen Nook of Lower Kalskag was found dead Friday in his home. Nook had reported eating fermented fish two days earlier. He told others in the village he felt sick and was seeing double. A community member checked on Nook early Friday afternoon and found him unresponsive. Village medical personnel responded and he was pronounced dead 20 minutes later. Troopers say no foul play is suspected. Lower Kalskag is a community of 300 about 89 miles northeast of Bethel and 350 miles west of Anchorage.

Man accused of setting off ‘seal bombs’ JUNEAU — A Ketchikan man has pleaded not guilty to allegations he detonated bombs used for scaring seals from fishing nets inside a tunnel in that southeast community last month. Joseph Duane Brown was indicted on a felony charge of receipt and possession of explosive materials by a prohibited person, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. The 39-year-old is a convicted felon, prohibited from possessing explosive materials. While he was indicted by an Anchorage grand jury in July, the indictment was not unsealed until Brown’s arrest last Wednesday. Brown entered his plea Friday in U.S. District Court in Juneau. He was appointed a public defender, and trial was scheduled for October, the Juneau Empire reported. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Schmidt said no one was injured in the July 4 incident, though a taxi was driving through a tunnel at the time the bombs went off. He said there also was no damage to the 274-foot tunnel. Schmidt said “seal bombs” are legal to own with the proper license and are roughly the size of a firecracker. He said Brown, who originally is from Juneau, used a type of binary exploding rifle target commonly used in shooting practice to set off the bombs. He said aluminum shavings have to be mixed in to set the explosive off. Agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Anchorage aided in the investigation. Brown’s record includes six convictions out of Ketchikan for offenses including second-degree burglary and seconddegree theft, according to the indictment.

Anchorage considers new strategy for port ANCHORAGE — More than 50 people tied to the embattled effort to overhaul Anchorage’s port will begin on Monday to consider another strategy, likely including a reduction in the scope of construction. The city predicts it will abandon the dock being built to the north and focus on rehabilitating the current 53-year-old structure, port engineer Todd Cowles told the Alaska Dispatch News. Officials expect the weeklong planning session in Anchorage to lead to the selection of three possible design plans. Engineering firm CH2M Hill, which now manages the project, will present a top design by November, according to Lindsey Whitt, a spokeswoman for Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan. The project that began in 2003 initially called for more expansion. “It was a different plan,” Cowles said. “It was a much larger program than what we anticipate having to design for with the funding available.” Construction stalled in 2009 when inspections showed that some steel sheets for the dock had bent, jammed and separated, threatening the structure’s integrity. The U.S. Maritime Administration, or MARAD, commissioned a $2.2 million yearlong study. The agency initially was in charge of the project. The study by CH2M Hill said the problems were not just about construction, but went through to the project’s design. A federal audit said MARAD had failed to do its job, did not establish itself as the lead agency or verify the project’s costs. Cost estimates increased from $211 million to $1 billion between 2003 and 2011, according to the audit. The city has spent about $300 million in federal, state and municipal funds on the project so far as well as millions on maintenance for the existing port, said Cowles, the engineer. Two lawsuits initiated by Sullivan have been filed to recoup money spent on the expansion. A cost estimate to complete port construction isn’t known, Cowles said. The city once had nearly $440 million set aside for the project, and about $130 million of that is left, according to a March letter from Sullivan to state legislators.

Astronaut Aldrin endorses Treadwell in Senate race ANCHORAGE — Space pioneer Buzz Aldrin has endorsed Mead Treadwell in Alaska’s Republican U.S. Senate primary. While Aldrin is not from Alaska, he said he has known Treadwell for nearly 30 years. In a statement, he praised Treadwell’s work as chairman of the Aerospace States Association and efforts to help make Alaska a testing ground for drones. Aldrin also helped raise money for a project, in memory of Treadwell’s late wife, that helped to bring thousands of students to the Alaska Sea Life Center in Seward. In 1969, Aldrin was one of the first men to walk on the moon. Treadwell faces two high-profile candidates for the GOP nomination in Tuesday’s primary: presumptive front-runner Dan Sullivan and tea party favorite Joe Miller, who also has trotted out celebrity endorsements, including Sarah Palin. — The Associated Press C

Nationals roll to 7th straight victory By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Adam LaRoche hit a game-winning solo home run with two outs in the 11th inning to help the Washington Nationals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 Monday night for their seventh straight win. It was the third walk-off win in as many days for NL-East leading Washington. LaRoche sent a 3-1 pitch from Will Harris (0-3) off the wall in the back of the Nationals bullpen and was mobbed by his teammates at home plate. Winning pitcher Craig Stammen (3-4) pitched out of a bases-loaded, no outs jam in the top of the inning. Arizona tied it 4-4 when David Peralta led off the ninth with a solo homer off Tyler Clippard. Washington trailed 3-2 when Denard Span doubled with one-out in the eighth against Brad Ziegler and Anthony Rendon followed with a triple to tie it.

The early outburst was enough for Ervin Santana, who allowed three solo homers among nine hits in 5 1-3 innings. Santana (13-6) improved to 8-1 over his past 10 starts. Pittsburgh has lost six in a row. Starling Marte went deep twice, and Neil Walker added a homer that became the first to reach the Allegheny River beyond right field at PNC Park this season.


NEW YORK — Kyle Hendricks and two relievers held New York to four or fewer hits for the fifth straight game, Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez hit long homers, and the Cubs rallied for a victory over the Mets. Hendricks (5-1) gave up just three hits in seven innings, allowing only Lucas Duda’s home run in the fourth. The rookie right-hander won his fourth straight start — yielding four earned runs over 29 1-3 innings. Neil Ramirez struck out two in a perfect eighth and Hector Rondon allowed a leadoff double but finished the four-hitter for his 18th save.

It was the fifth win in six games for the Angels, who moved a half-game ahead of idle Oakland. David Ortiz reached base four times with a double, single and two walks for the Red Sox, who have lost three of four after winning four straight. Angels starter C.J. Wilson (10-8) labored through 5 1-3 innings, giving up one run and five hits with five walks and five strikeouts. Kevin Jepsen worked the ninth for his first save since Sept. 16, 2012. He struck out Ortiz with two on and none out before allowing a run. Brandon Workman (1-7) lost his sixth straight start, giving up two runs and six hits in seven innings.

PHILLIES 4, MARINERS 1 PHILADELPHIA — Jerome Williams took a three-hitter into the eighth inning, Andres Blanco hit his first homer in three years, and the Phillies beat the Mariners in an interleague game. Making his second start since joining the Phillies, Williams (1-0) allowed one run and three hits in seven-plus innings. Mariners rookie lefty Roenis Elias (910) gave up one run and three hits in four innings. He constantly pitched out of jams because he walked six and hit one batter

Jay Bruce homered, doubled and knocked in four runs for the Reds, giving him nine RBIs in four games. Brandon Phillips returned from left thumb surgery wearing a brace and was 0 for 4 with a walk. Logan Ondrusek (3-3) entered with one out in the 10th and gave up consecutive singles to Matt Holliday, Matt Adams and Peralta. Ondrusek (strained right shoulder) was activated from the disabled list earlier in the day. Peralta’s RBI single in the first was just his second in 32 at-bats against the Reds this season. He also doubled and scored the tying run on A.J. Pierzynski’s hit off Jumbo Diaz in the eighth.

Aim high, train high Homer’s altitude work pays off at Nikiski Class Races By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion





The cross-country course at Nikiski High School is tough, but the Homer girls have seen tougher. It showed Monday at the Nikiski Class Races. The Mariners girls, coming off a high-altitude running camp in Oregon at the end of July, nabbed the team title in the freshman and sophomore, and the junior and senior races. Homer’s Megan Pitzman won the freshman and sophomore girls race, and three of the next five finishers wore Homer gear. In the junior and senior girls race, Kenai’s Allie Ostrander and then Soldotna’s Olivia Hutchings were first to the line, but Homer claimed three of the next five spots. The major boys spoils were split between Kodiak and Kenai. Keith Osowski won the freshman and sophomore boys race to lead the Bears to the team title, while Jonah Theisen claimed the junior and senior race to lead the Kardinals to top team honors. Pitzman said seven members of Homer’s girls team and one member of the boys team attended the Oregon camp, which featured running at elevations as high as 9,000 feet. At the end of five days of training, the Mariners did an uphill, five-kilometer race starting at about 7,000 feet and going up another 800 to 1,000. “Once you do that, nothing else seems as challenging,” Pitzman said.

Marathon junior race, said the punishing race halfway up and down the Seward mountain is harder than even the uphill 5K. So even though the constant uphills and downhills at Nikiski make up the toughest course prep runners will see this season, Pitzman was in her element as she breezed to the win in 22 minutes, 6 seconds. Kodiak’s Melissa DeGuzman was second at 22:37. Pitzman said the reason the Mariners have gone to such heights in their training is simple — six-time defending Class 1-2-3A girls state champion Grace Christian. “We’re shooting for first place at state as a team,” she said. Osowski also said the Bears have designs on a first Class 4A boys state title since 2008. That’s why he put in his training this summer, and it showed Monday when he won a race for the first time, running 18:14 to top teammate and runner-up Jack Hannah by 54 seconds. “We’re shooting for first place but it is going to be a challenge,” he said. “West Valley and West are going to be tough.” The Nikiski Class Races are just 10 practices into the season. Runners need 10 practices to compete, so many are not eligible for the event and run instead in the community race. The numbers of juniors and seniors entered was so small that the junior and senior boys and girls race was combined into one. Kenai Central senior Allie Ostrander left more than just a few jaws on Seward’s Fourth Avenue this summer when she

won the coed Mt. Marathon Junior Race — the first time the race has been won by a girl. Monday, she was fourth overall on the rugged Nikiski course. Jonah Theisen won at 17:10, Kodiak’s Levi Fried was next at 17:25, Kenai’s Jordan Theisen was third at 17:30 and Ostrander was right behind at 17:31. Kodiak’s Levi Thomet, the two-time defending Class 4A champ, was in the community race. There are no official times for the race, but Thomet came in at about 16:13. “I was trying so hard to catch him,” Ostrander said of Jordan Theisen. “I was really close and I think he knew it. He picked up the pace a little.” Ostrander ran about 20 yards behind the lead pack of three for most of the race. She said she could never close the gap because every time she made progress on an uphill, the long legs of the boys would stretch out the lead on the downhill. But Ostrander was still happy with her race after improving her time from last year by about a minute. Ostrander was in the community race this year. “I was really happy I got to run with the boys because it’s a tough course and it was hot out,” she said. “It was nice to have their backs as a target.” After improving so much at Nikiski, the odds increase that Ostrander could break into the 16s this Saturday at the Tsalteshi Invite, where she ran 17:15 last year. “To get in the 16s is my season goal,” she said. “It would be a dream come true.” Jonah Theisen said he made See RUN, page B-2

Manziel’s gesture just 1 of many Browns’ lowlights By The Associated Press

LANDOVER, Md. — Johnny Manziel raised his middle finger toward the Washington Redskins bench as he returned to the huddle late in the third quarter. It was one of the few times a Cleveland Browns quarterback actually found his intended target. Manziel’s latest hand gesture was one of many lowlights for the Browns in a 24-23 Monday night loss that did little to make coach Mike Pettine’s decision any easier when it comes to selecting a Week 1 starter. If the choice is based solely on numbers, there’s not much either Manziel or Brian Hoyer did to show he deserves the job. If it’s based on composure, the hotshot rookie’s obscene gesture lost him some ground to the nondescript sixthyear veteran. “It does not sit well,” Pettine said. “It’s disappointing, because what we talk about is being poised and being focused. ... That’s a big part of all football players, especially the quarterback.” Manziel called the moment a “lapse of judgment.” Teammate Joe Haden said

opposition fans and players were giving “Johnny Football” plenty of unprintable verbal grief for the second straight week. Manziel was openly mocked by Brian Orakpo when the Redskins linebacker raised both hands and performed the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner’s “money” gesture after a sack by Ryan Kerrigan in the first quarter. “I get words exchanged throughout the entirety of the game, every game, week after week, and I should’ve been smarter,” Manziel said. “It was a ‘Monday Night Football’ game and cameras were probably solid on me, and I just need to be smarter about that. ... It’s there, and it’s present every game, and I just need to let it slide off my back and go to the next play.” Meanwhile, Pettine needs to pick a quarterback. The performances were so unspectacular that the coach suggested he might audible from his previously stated plan of announcing his regularseason starter on Tuesday. “All the options are still on the table,” Pettine said. Hoyer started Monday night and C




completed 2 of 6 passes for 16 yards. His self-assessment: “It probably couldn’t have been any worse. It’s disappointing. It was embarrassing.” Manziel, the No. 22 overall pick in the draft, was 7 for 16 for 65 yards and a touchdown. Of his series early in the game, he said: “I really tried to force everything and not let it fly like I should have. I need to get better at that and throw the dang ball.” Those stats, as mediocre as they are, were padded by series against the Redskins’ backups. In the first quarter — when Washington’s starters were in the game — Manziel was 2 for 7 for 29 yards, while Hoyer was 0 for 2. “They both missed some throws,” Pettine said. If there’s any hint as to which way Pettine is leaning, it’s worth noting that Hoyer started for the second consecutive game and played mostly with the first-team offense, while Manziel was sent out with the backups to play in the second half. Manziel took advantage by leading a 16-play, 68-yard drive capped by an 8-yard pass to Dion Lewis for

Cleveland’s first touchdown. The sloppy game included 21 penalties and five turnovers. The Browns were particularly susceptible to the NFL’s new emphasis on hindering receivers: Cleveland’s defense was whistled five times for holding or illegal contact in the first quarter alone, including twice on one play. Dockett tears ACL GLENDALE, Ariz. — Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett, one of the most durable players in the NFL over the past decade, tore the ACL in his right knee during practice Monday and will undergo season-ending surgery. The team said the extent of the injury was revealed in an MRI. The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Dockett has missed only two games in 10 NFL seasons. He has started 156 of the 158 games in which he appeared. Dockett was hurt in an 11-on-11 drill. He limped away but had to be helped onto a cart. Dockett lay on his back as he was carted off the field.

his winning move on a downhill about a mile from the finish. He did not expect the move to be decisive, but it was enough to get the best of his brother, at least for now. “I guess he was kind of sick last week and I was fresh,” Jonah said. He said running with Ostrander also gave him motivation. “It probably made me run faster because I didn’t want to lose to her,” he said. Nikiski Class Races

CrosswordBy Eugene Sheffer

Young man with heart scar has options for covering it up DEAR ABBY: I am a registered nurse. That scar can be faded by using pure cocoa butter (in stick form, not lotion). It can be purchased at the pharmacy. I would also like to let him know that in this part of the country, survivors are known as members of the “Zipper Club.” When I see patients with this scar, I know they have had open heart surgery. Abigail Van Buren It alerts me to a whole realm of information before anything is said and directs how care is given in case of emergency. Please let “Self-Conscious” know his scar is not an eyesore, but a GIFT OF LIFE. — PROUD R.N. IN WEST VIRGINIA DEAR ABBY: “Self-Conscious” might benefit from getting a tattoo. A recent TV program aired a segment showing women with mastectomies receiving amazing designs to cover or beautify their scars. With a good tattoo artist, these pieces can be life-altering and the artwork stunning. — JANET IN ANNAPOLIS, MD.

DEAR ABBY: I broke my ankle a few years ago. A wonderful surgeon and a fantastic physical therapist got me walking again, but I was left with several large, raised scars. I put wheat germ oil (full of vitamin E) on them in the morning and evening, and they are barely visible now. — ONLINE READER IN ISRAEL DEAR ABBY: For many years I dated a young man with a similar scar, and it was something I found endearing. To me, it was no different than freckles or a birthmark. It was part of what made him unique. We all have our stories and history. His scar is an opening to share his. — ROSE IN NORTHAMPTON, MASS. DEAR ABBY: I have a young friend who had open-heart surgery when she was a high school senior. On the night of her prom, she wore a strapless dress with her “red badge of courage” on full display. — SANDRA IN ROCHESTER, N.H. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

A baby born today has a Sun in Leo and a Moon in Gemini. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Aug. 19, 2014: This year you are goal-focused. Part of accomplishing what you want will require you to intensify your networking. The more people you meet, the better off you’ll be. Your domestic life can be extremely demanding and somewhat burdensome. You will clear up any problems by next year. If you are single, you will have many suitors. Decide what kind of relationship you want, and then you will be able to make a sound decision. If you are attached, many difficulties you have had together most likely will be happily resolved. Make it OK to have differences of opinion, and learn to respect them. GEMINI always wants you to meet more of his or her friends. 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 Your efforts count.Even if you don’t reach your goal, a partner will be supportive of your efforts. Later in the day, you will see the right path. Tap into your endless creativity in order to find the right solution or approach. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You might be more possessive than you realize, and someone will let you know in no uncertain terms. You could push others away if you are not careful, as some people cannot tolerate that type of neediness. Tonight: Make it your treat. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Keep your long-term objec-


tives in mind. The unexpected is likely to occur in a meeting or with a friend. At first, you might be startled, but in time your sense of humor will take over. Try not to laugh in front of others, though. Tonight: Wish upon a star. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Reveal less than you know right now, and maintain a low profile. You might be more judgmental than you realize. If you express your views, it is likely that someone could shut down. Tonight: Play until you are tired, then get some extra R and R. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Listen to a friend’s news more carefully. You have the ability to get past a problem once you detach. When you are no longer triggered, you’ll come up with a workable solution. A meeting could be instrumental in this process. Tonight: Find your friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You often feel as though you need to answer to others. As a result, you could be allowing yourself to be taken advantage of. You will have to learn how to say “no” more often. Know that this could take some time, as patterns could be difficult to break. Tonight: In the limelight. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. Maintain some discipline, especially with your finances. News will head your way that offers more insight. Use this vision to find a solution. You might want to open up to a new acquaintance. Tonight: Follow the music. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Move forward in a discussion.

By Leigh Rubin


Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars Listen to others’ opinions before deciding which way to go. Unexpected developments could take you in a new direction, where you might need to become more selfdisciplined. Tonight: Pay attention to an older person. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Defer to someone else, so that he or she can show off his or her skills. You might be taken aback by this person’s self-expression. Make several calls to someone in the know for a second opinion. You might be slightly more negative than you realize. Tonight: Go with the program. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You might feel overwhelmed by everything you need to do. Show off your delegating skills in order to accomplish as much as possible. Be open to a partner’s suggestions, as they could work. Weigh the pros and cons of each one before you decide. Tonight: Make it cozy and warm. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH Your creativity is likely to emerge. As long as you tap in to your imagination, you will appear to have the magic touch. Take charge of a matter when dealing with authority figures. Keep conversations moving. Tonight: Go for what you want. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Settle in, and decide what your priorities are before you act. Otherwise, you could experience a big backfire. Look to someone at a distance who seems to understand you; this person always seems to give good advice. Curb wild risk-taking. Tonight: Invite a friend over.

Security is in the chips Dear Readers: Have you received a new credit card lately? Does it have a CHIP in it? These newer credit cards have a microchip as well as a magnetic strip. And they are more secure than the ones with just the magnetic strip. The good news is that the microchip is very, very hard to counterfeit. Some even have a personal identification number (PIN) to punch in when using the card. This makes it extremely difficult for criminals to copy it! So take a look at your credit cards to see if there is a silver holograph on the front or the back. Yep, it has a chip! If you are uncertain, call the financial institution that issued the card and ask if the card has a microchip! — Heloise Rubber end Dear Heloise: When a pair of rubber gloves from the kitchen gets a hole or wears out, I don’t throw out the entire glove. Instead, I cut off the fingertips. They can be used on the ends of brooms, mops or anything you place against a wall. I’ve even put them on the ends of pot handles for an extra grip (just make sure it is not a handle that gets hot). — Lily D. in Utah Kitchen helper Dear Heloise: I have found that a pair of long tongs with silicone tips works very well to reach items from the top shelf in the kitchen cabinet. — Angie P., via email Send a money-saving or timesaving hint to Heloise, P.O. Box 795000, San Antonio, TX 78279-5000, or you can fax it to 1-210-HELOISE or email it to Heloise(at) I can’t answer your letter personally but will use the best hints received in my column.

DEAR ABBY: You printed a letter from “SelfConscious in Georgia” (May 15), a young man who is insecure about the scar from his heart surgery. I have had three surgeries for congenital defects, my first at 2 years old. Because many women’s fashions expose the upper chest, I applied anti-scar products, which greatly reduced the size and color of my scars. Swimwear lines have sun-blocking swim shirts that are quick-drying and comfortable. At the beach, “SelfConscious” could wear a beach-themed T-shirt and say he is reducing his sun exposure, which is a good idea these days. As to anyone protesting his not going shirtless, true friends accept your choices, no matter the circumstances. They won’t call you out for not following the herd. And another thing: The young man might benefit from a cardiac support group to lessen his feelings of isolation or inadequacy. He suffered trauma that led to and created that scar. Now he deserves to be happy on his own terms. — WAS THERE ONCE AND I’M STILL HERE DEAR STILL HERE: Thank you for your comments. Readers were quick to offer messages of support to “Self-Conscious”:

Charity trains shelter pups as K-9 officers By DANA DIFILIPPO Philadelphia Daily News

PHILADELPHIA — When Jason Walters first met Winchester, the German shepherd was a 120-pound ball of energy so big and high-strung that his overwhelmed owners had given him up to a shelter. He was exactly what Walters, a SEPTA police officer, wanted. “High-strung, for us, is a positive,” said Walters, who helped transform Winchester into a working police dog (now a svelte 95 pounds from rigorous training). “Training these dogs is like playtime for them their work is hide-and-seek.” Their partnership has proven so successful that Walters has created a charity, the Throw Away Dogs Project, that aims to train unwanted shelter dogs to be working police dogs. Besides saving dogs possibly doomed to die, the charity will help police departments: Dogs professionally trained as police K-9s from puppyhood can cost $8,000 or more, according to the National Police Dog Foundation. The Throw Away Dogs Project, which already donated





one rescued dog to the Maryland State Police, gives dogs to departments for free. Walters said he and cofounder Carol Skaziak came up with the idea last December. Skaziak does public-relations work for Philadelphia Pet Hotel and Villas, where Walters boards Winchester and his family dog, Trigger, during vacations. “At least once a month, dogs were being left at the hotel,” Skaziak said. Skaziak was so outraged that she featured rescued dogs in a 2014 calendar, with Winchester as the cover dog. Proceeds paid for a year’s worth of dog food for New Leash on Life USA, a charity that rescues abandoned dogs. Skaziak is now recruiting dogs for a 2015 calendar. Skaziak and Walters partnered to create the Throw Away Dogs Project because they wanted to move beyond fundraising to saving lives, Walters said. And the bosses appreciate that the effort could save money, too. “We’re always looking for ways to streamline the cost of our operations,” SEPTA Police Chief Thomas Nestel said.
