In the news New totem poles set to be raised in Juneau C
JUNEAU (AP) — Sealaska Heritage Institute is among sponsors of an upcoming ceremony to raise two totem poles carved for a building in the Indian village of Juneau. The totems are replacing original poles that had deteriorated and become safety issues. The pole raising ceremony is scheduled to take place at 11:30 a.m. Monday at the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall in Juneau. The carvers are brothers Joe and T.J. Young, who began the work last year. They also created a replacement house screen — a painted, decorated panel that sits between the totem poles. Sealaska Heritage officials say the screen has been installed. Sealaska Heritage Institute is the nonprofit cultural and educational arm of Juneau-based Sealaska Corp., a regional Native corporation that donated the yellow cedar logs that the poles were carved on.

Soldotna seeks funding for complex expansion By KELLY SULLIVAN Peninsula Clarion
ing in Connecticut, Begich did not bow to pressure, even from within his own party, to support tighter background checks for buyers and a ban on assault weapons. That legislation ultimately failed. Begich said there should be a focus on improving mental health care rather than new gun control measures. “That certainly didn’t go unnoticed by gun owners all across the country,” Arulanandam said. Begich and Sullivan have both touted their support for the Second Amendment during the campaign. A new Sullivan ad features Elaina Spraker, who is
The City of Soldotna is drafting plans for its 2016 fiscal year legislative priorities, which will be finalized early this fall. If the city council passes the priorities resolution at its next regular meeting, Oct. 15, the Soldotna Regional Sports Complex Expansion will be the city’s top priority. The project would include a renovation of the existing facility and the total cost, originally estimated at $17 million, is now closer to $10.4 million, City Manager Mark Dixson said. Soldotna will only be requesting funding for $5.9 million of the project cost from the state, according to the priorities draft City Engineer Kyle Kornelis presented at a public work session Wednesday. “We’re ahead of the game, and trying to be proactive,” said Kornelis. “The city is eagerly seeking state funding to make it a reality.” Council member Linda Murphy said the governor doesn’t normally put money in for municipalities’ capital projects, but if there is a resolution that includes “big ticket” items, such

NRA won’t endorse Senate race By BECKY BOHRER Associated Press
JUNEAU — The National Rifle Association has decided to not endorse in Alaska’s U.S. Senate race, with a spokesman saying Wednesday that Democratic Sen. Mark Begich’s support of two Supreme Court nominees opposed by the group cost him that endorsement. The announcement came after the group’s political arm reported in recent filings with the Federal Election Commission that it made ad buys in several prominent U.S. Senate races across the country, including Colorado and North Carolina.
In Alaska, the NRA gave Begich an A-minus rating and his Republican challenger Dan Sullivan an A-q. The Begich “q’’ means the grade is qualified because Sullivan has no voting record, NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said. Grades in those cases are based, in part, on answers provided in questionnaires. Sullivan, a former state attorney general and Natural Resources commissioner, is making his first run for public office.
Arulanandam said Begich would have gotten a higher grade and the NRA’s endorsement if he had not Sullivan voted for President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominees, Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. Both were opposed by the NRA. On gun votes, Begich has stood with NRA members 100 percent of the time, Arulanandam said. He noted, for example, that after a deadly school shoot-
Report finds fewer government jobs in Juneau JUNEAU (AP) — Government jobs in Juneau are decreasing while private sector jobs are on the rise, though the largest growth area tends to be in lower-paying positions, according to a new report. The Juneau Economic Development Council’s 2014 Economic Indicators and Outlook found the leisure and hospitality field, which includes tourism,
restaurants and hotels, to be one of the city’s growth areas. The cutoff between a lowpaying and moderate-paying job, adjusted for Alaska’s cost of living, is $13.50 an hour. Local and tribal government jobs fell by 6 percent during the last decade in contrast with Juneau’s 6-percent increase in population. Federal civilian jobs are among the best-paying
in the capital city, but there are fewer of those positions. State jobs were down a bit during the past decade, while Anchorage and Fairbanks have seen in increase in state jobs, the Juneau Empire reported. Government remains the biggest employer in Juneau. The city has seen a relatively low unemployment rate and a large number of non-resident
workers. Researcher Eva Bornstein sees opportunities either in hiring local residents for jobs that often might go to nonresidents or in attracting seasonal workers to become a permanent part of Juneau’s workforce. One challenge with that, though, is housing. Juneau has a chronically low vacancy rate, and the new housing units built over the past decade have barely kept up
with the growth in population. “We are treading water,” the council’s executive director, Brian Holst, told Juneau Assembly members this week. The cost of living and health care are higher than the national average. Heating costs are also higher than the national average, but other Alaska communities — particularly in rural areas — are hit much harder.
Study finds lack of marine LNG infrastructure, regs By ELWOOD BREHMER Morris News Service-Alaska/ Alaska Journal of Commerce
A U.S. Maritime Administration study released this month found that the country is ill prepared for large vessels converting from traditional heavy diesel fuel to liquefied natural gas. Improvements in training and regulatory oversight must be made if there is a sea change to LNG as the maritime industry tries to meet new environmental requirements. The four-part, 156-page report states that there are gaps in standardized regulations for bunkering, or fueling, LNGpowered vessels as well as for emergency preparedness and
response requirements, vapor gas management, and inspection requirements. Domestic standards for technical design are also lacking, according to the report. “Among the list of gaps, one of the most important to ensure the widespread adoption of LNG-fueled ships is clear and risk-informed requirements for non-self-propelled bunker barges,” the authors wrote. The report concluded that ship-to-ship refueling is the preferred option for the quantities of LNG needed to supply large vessels. Regulatory vacuums largely exist regarding the transfer of LNG from shoreside facilities or non-navigable waters to navigable U.S. waterways and
performing LNG fueling operations while on a navigable waterway, too. The regulatory improvements would help shape the arrangement of the fueling infrastructure in the U.S., of which there is little, the study suggests. Northern Europe is one region of the world where LNG is a common large vessel fuel. During a speech at a recent industry conference, Federal Maritime Commissioner William Doyle said the cost and environmental benefits of LNG as fuel cannot be ignored, particularly because the country is flush with natural gas as a result of the shale energy boom. “Based on the current forecasts, natural gas delivered for See LNG, page A-12 C

The company plans to convert its sister ships the Midnight Sun and the M/V North Star to LNG in 2016 and 2017, but a new report finds that lack of infrastructure and regulations could hamper widespread use in the shipping industry.

Feds agree to wolf-decision deadline PETERSBURG (AP) — The federal government has agreed to decide in late 2015 whether a rare species of southeast Alaska wolves warrants protections as a species. The federal government filed a settlement agreement Monday, saying it will complete a 12-month finding on the Alexander Archipelago wolf by the end of next year, KFSK reported. “At that time we will announce whether or not we believe that it is warranted to list Alexander Archipelago wolf as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act,” said Andrea Medeiros, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman. The filing stems from a lawsuit filed by the Center for Biological Diversity and two other conservation groups earlier this year to force a decision by the Fish and Wildlife Service on whether the rare wolf should

Plaintiffs have said the government is long overdue on a listing decision. The groups filed a petition in 2011 to list the wolf as endangered. “When a petition is filed, there’s supposed to be a preliminary 90-day finding, 90 days after the petition is filed,” said Larry Edwards with Greenpeace, one of the plaintiffs. “And the final decision is supposed to come one year after
Juneau man accused of using fake money JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A Juneau man faces a forgery charge after police say he used fake bills to buy soda at a hotel and pay a phone bill. Michael James Healey, 32, was indicted by grand jury on Friday. An arraignment was planned Wednesday afternoon in Juneau Superior Court for the felony charge. His attorney, Mark Osterman, declined comment when reached by The Associated Press Wednesday morning. At least five Juneau businesses reported receiving forged bills in the last month, the Juneau Empire reported. “We believe that they’re connected based on the serial numbers on the bills,” police Lt. Kris Sell said. “If you use the same original and keep copying it, they’re going to be linked. And these all have the same serial numbers.” Police said they were led to C

that.” The Alexander Archipelago wolves are a subspecies of gray wolves that live in old-growth forest of southeast Alaska. The conservation groups want greater protection for the
wolves in the Tongass National Forest. They say the wolf numbers are shrinking, and the animals are vulnerable to hunting and trapping, as well as the loss of habitat from logging. The U.S. Forest Service is planning additional timber sales on islands inhabited by the wolves. The groups want the Fish and Wildlife Service to make a decision before more habitat is lost. The wolves den in the root systems of large trees and hunt Sitka black-tailed deer, which depend on high-quality, old forests. The wolves are genetically distinct from other wolves in the Tongass.

Residents use various means to put out tundra fire ANCHORAGE (AP) — Residents in a village north of the Arctic Circle used about every means possible to stop a tundra fire. KTUU reports a backhoe, a four-wheeler and even wet sheets were used to stop the fire from reaching the village cemetery in Noatak on Saturday. Fire department member Eileen Foster said the fire started about a quarter mile north of the cemetery, and grew to a half-mile wide and two-miles long. Wind pushed it to about a mile and a half from the village. The backhoe was used to stop the fire’s advance, and then residents spent about four hours putting it out. There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire isn’t known. Noatak is an Inupiat community of about 600, located 55 miles north of Kotzebue.

Xerox billing rollout has hurt Alaska patients, doctors Gov. Sean Parnell announced Monday
The climate march to nowhere
Anti-climate-change marchers took to the streets of Manhattan, N.Y., in the hundreds of thousands over the weekend to demand international action to fight global warming. The throng would have better advised to parade in downtown Beijing, assuming the Politburo wouldn’t have called out the infantry. China is the locus of the alleged crime against the planet that is carbon emissions, yet the marchers staged their event in the United States, where prior to last year emissions had been declining (thanks, in part, to the natural-gas revolution, which oddly didn’t get much love from the climate marchers). China is responsible for 27 percent of carbon emissions, more than any other country, and uses as much coal as the rest of the world. Since 1990, it has matched the U.S. in cumulative carbon emissions. China is representative of a developing world that is taking the global lead on emissions, at nearly 60 percent of the total. There are many things we should be attempting to persuade China to stop doing: Arbitrarily ruling over its own people. Imprisoning and torturing dissidents. Occupying Tibet. Making aggressive territorial claims in its region. Compared with all of these, availing itself of the wonders of the industrial economy is welcome. And if we can’t stop China from doing these other things — self-evidently violations of human rights or international norms — how are we going to
that the state has filed a claim against Xerox for its mishandling of Medicaid billing in the past year. The governor’s move is the right one, though it could have been made sooner. Over the course of the year that Xerox has been in charge of processing the billing for Medicaid claims across the state, patients and doctors have experienced months-long delays that have burdened medical providers and even caused some to close up shop. Alaska isn’t alone in experiencing issues with Xerox as a provider for Medicaid billing services. A dozen states and the District of Columbia have contracted with the corporation to process payments for the need-based government health care plan, though some have had problems or reversed that decision. Montana claimed Xerox was in breach of their contract earlier this year before reaching resolution with the company, while Texas has not only canceled their contract but is suing. In fairness, Medicaid is a vast and complex system, and the billing process wasn’t without its hiccups even before Xerox took over. But according to the accounts of the state and health care providers, those problems have worsened considerably since the company’s contract started. “Despite repeated promises by Xerox to fix the problem, we still have hundreds of dedicated providers not getting timely or accurate payments,” Gov. Parnell said in a release detailing the state’s decision to file a claim against the company. “Xerox has had more than enough time, and the issues have yet to be resolved.” “More than enough time” is a good way to describe the situation. Doctors and patients alike have been frustrated with both Xerox’s tardiness in processing payments and the state’s slow march toward action against the company. After months of complaints, the state announced it was seeking mediation with Xerox in July. The state announced it would make a claim with the Office of Administrative Hearings when that process didn’t prove fruitful. For its part, Xerox has characterized the problems as having decreased significantly as the company works kinks out of its system, and they point to the fact that the company and the state made a joint agreement to roll out the system when they did. But the state is right — the problems with billing have Letters to the Editor been too widespread and too long-lasting to consider Xerox to be fulfilling its end of the bargain. Alaska’s Lawsuit disrupts patients and doctors deserve better, as soon as possible. election process — Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Steve Strait’s lawsuit against the state Sept. 24 of Alaska’s approval of the Walker-Mallott
Classic Doonesbury, 1978
By GARRY TRUDEAU
no-party gubernatorial ticket will backfire on the Alaska Republican Party. Strait and Frank McQueary, a financial supporter of the lawsuit, are among the chairman-appointees to the ARP executive committee. Party regulars whisper the appointees are the character assassination-litigation hit squad. These facts don’t matter. Proceeding with an orderly, lawful election is what matters. Alaska’s Division of Elections has posted the sample general election ballot for all Alaska districts on its official website. Screenshots have been posted on Facebook. Vets are voting today, as official ballots were already mailed to U.S. military members. An orderly election is underway. To disrupt this election would be breaking the law. The Republican Party is represented on the ballot with the Parnell-Sullivan ticket. So what’s the problem? Political parties are in a bad habit of alienating, embarrassing, or infuriating Alaskans with their “neverfight-fair” politics. Most folks will recognize actions like Strait’s as despicable with purpose to destroy a legitimate and orderly election process. Despicable revisited: In 2012, we held our state ARP convention in Anchorage, attended to important policy decisions and elected new state officers. New leaders were legitimately elected by hundreds of Alaskans who paid hefty registration fees, travel and hotel costs. The outgoing ARP administration didn’t agree with the election outcome. Immediately after the convention the ARP executive committee began plotting to “nullify” a legitimate C
keep it from continuing to ramp up its economic growth, as any rational society would? The answer is that we almost certainly aren’t. Anti-globalwarming activism consists of symbolic Rich Lowry protests against a highly complex planetary phenomenon we understand poorly and don’t control. The unpredicted pause in the rise in global temperature since the late 1990s is so embarrassing to climate activists, who are filled with a fiery certitude about the “science,” that it goes unmentioned (the climate marchers could have chanted, “Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Where’d climate change go?”). In their fevered urgency, they give off the sense that they are desperate to save the planet before it might become evident that it doesn’t need saving. Our direct influence on global warming is highly limited, even if you assume the science is completely settled. As a country, we could end our emissions entirely, and it would barely cause a blip in the cumulative carbon buildup in the atmosphere. There are causes to which the climate marchers could devote themselves that would have an immediate positive effect on human welfare: from promoting clean water in the Third World to agitating for cures to all manner of diseases. None of
election. Were Strait and party leaders concerned then about disenfranchisement of Alaskans, their fellow Republicans? No. Instead they relentlessly attacked the elected officers, ousted them, and replaced them with “acceptable” individuals. Is Strait genuinely concerned today about disenfranchised Alaska Democrats with the Walker-Mallott no-party ticket? No. His litigation is disingenuous. It’s really about keeping power for the acceptable people. When corruption or disregard of the election process or election results are identified, Alaskans have a responsibility to stop it. When I served as state party chairman in 2013, I sent termination letters to 100 percent of the “chairman-appointed” executive committee. I gave it my best shot. I am deeply grieved by the way my GOP is behaving these days. I remain hopeful that more Alaskans will stand up against lies and political shenanigans. Fight back with a united voice, by voting on Nov. 4. I also expect the Alaska Court System to act swiftly to dismiss Strait’s disruptive lawsuit. Alaskans demand an orderly election process. Debbie Brown Kasilof
Looking for solutions All I hear from Dan Sullivan in his campaign for the Senate seat are a bunch of washed up talking points about repealing the Affordable Care Act. I’ve yet to hear him offer any real solutions that would actually work for Alaska. I’d also like to point out that Alaska’s rising insurance rates are not because of the law itself, as Sullivan falsely claims, but because Governor Parnell chose not to build our own exchange system (as the law was designed for) and not to expand Medicaid. We are now paying the price for those decisions, while states that did opt
this, though, is as alluring as anti-industrial apocalypticism. As writer Oren Cass has noted, today’s climate activists resemble the unilateral nuclear-disarmament movement of the 1980s, which also cloaked “plainly ineffectual policies in the language of moral necessity.” We could have eliminated all of our nuclear weapons — as we were urged to do by protesters who insisted it was necessary to saving the planet — and it wouldn’t have moved the Soviets to do the same; in fact, it would have delighted them. The same dynamic is at work today. The U.N. is holding a warm-up confab for the push for a new international treaty in New York this week. It is blighted only by the fact that the world’s top emitters aren’t participating. They surely understand that the anti-global-warming movement threatens what the developing world is doing to enrich itself. The climate march in Manhattan drew representatives from around the world. But it is doubtful that many or any of them live on $1 a day. These are the desperately poor people from developing countries whose welfare stands to gain immensely from industrial development. They know what it means to fight for survival — in a real sense, not in an airy metaphor about the planet — and if the marchers were to have their way, they would never know anything else. Rich Lowry can be reached via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
for a state exchange system and to expand Medicaid are seeing reduced or stable insurance costs. These are failing efforts Dan Sullivan supports. Alaskans benefit when we put our heads together and find solutions. If anyone can make health care reform work, it’s us. We need to stop focusing on the problems and look for solutions, just like with Medicare in the sixties. I, for one, saw the need for a new law when my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer. Being self-employed, we had a catastrophic insurance. It was supposed to cover major illness but had a high deductible. Shortly after he began treatment, the insurance was gone. If my husband hadn’t been a Korean War Vet, I would have been left with a monstrous debt. The new healthcare law would have helped me. I’m not saying there aren’t problems with it, but I join Mark Begich with his proactive “let’s improve what doesn’t work” approach. Don’t dismantle it. In this election, I’m voting for Mark Begich, Forrest Dunbar, and the Walker/ Mallot merger because they are actually offering solutions that will move this state forward. Gail Duncan Soldotna

Kenai woman opens vintage boutique Before even walking into the store customers are met with a variety of vintage items placed outside the door. Once inside, trinkets, dishware, jewelry and other items hang from the ceiling and are perched on antique furniture, boxes and luggage. Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe on Attla Way in Kenai opened in July, and shop owner Jeanie Carter said her shop is almost therapeutic, bringing back happy childhood memories through carefully curated items. “I’ve had people come in and find one platter and they will say, ‘That was my mom’s dishes. I want that,’” Carter said. Currently Carter has a trunk in the shop that has that “homestead” smell, which reminds people of earlier times. “It’s a smell that brings memories that triggers happy memories of people’s pasts,” she said. The shop started with items from Carter’s own home. “I had so many things that … I felt like were good quality, and I didn’t just want to garage sale them because I knew that they were worth more than a garage sale price,” she said. She leased a space, gave it a paint job and priced her pieces to sell. Now she buys items from women’s kitchen tables and customers’ boxes they bring to the shop. She considers each item she buys to make sure it is something her customers would be interested in purchasing. Her customers also give suggestions of items to bring into the shop. Some of her best selling pieces are silver spoons, doorknobs, suitcases and boxes. She also carries some clothes and jewelry, which, she said, draws in teen girls. During tourist season, she stocked more Alaska pieces. “So it’s a good variety store,” she said. “Even the little kids come in and they will

US hits Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq By RYAN LUCAS Associated Press
BEIRUT — U.S. fighter jets and bombers expanded their aerial campaign against Islamic State targets Wednesday, striking the militants in both Syria and Iraq even as the extremists pressed their offensive in Kurdish areas within sight of the Turkish border, where fleeing refugees told of civilians beheaded and towns torched. President Barack Obama, speaking at the United Nations, vowed an extended assault and called on the world to join in. “The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force, so the United States of America will work with a broad coalition to dismantle this network of death,” he told the U.N. General Assembly in a 38-minute speech. “Today, I ask the world to join in this effort.” In Syria, hard-line rebels aligned with a faction fighting to oust President Bashar Assad, but considered too radical by the U.S., packed up their heavy weapons and evacuated their bases over fears the Obama administration would target all fighters deemed a potential threat to the United States. Wednesday’s strikes marked the second day of a broadened U.S. military operation against the Islamic State group, after a barrage of more than 200
strikes on some two dozen targets in Syria a day earlier. That campaign, which the White House has warned could last years, builds upon the air raids the U.S. has already been conducting for more than a month against the extremists in Iraq. The ultimate aim of the Obama administration and its Arab partners is to destroy the Islamic State group, which through brute force has carved out a proto-state in the heart of the Middle East, effectively erasing the border between Iraq and Syria. Along the way, the extremist faction has massacred captured soldiers, terrorized religious minorities and beheaded two American journalists and a British aid worker. On Wednesday, Algerian extremists aligned with the Islamic State group declared in a video that they had beheaded a fourth hostage — a Frenchman seized in Algeria on Sunday — in retaliation for France joining the aerial assault against the militants in Iraq. French President Francois Hollande said France would not be deterred by the act of “barbarity.” “This particular group ... they don’t strike only those who don’t think like they do. They also strike Muslims. ... They rape, they kill,” a visibly upset Hollande told the U.N. General Assembly. “It is for this reason that the fight the international community needs to wage versus ter-
‘The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force, so the United States of America will work with a broad coalition to dismantle this network of death. Today, I ask the world to join in this effort.’ — President Barack Obama rorism knows no borders.” Meanwhile, U.S. allies lined up in support of the aerial campaign. The Dutch government announced it would send six F-16 fighter jets along with 250 pilots and support staff to strike at Islamic State targets in Iraq, while British Prime Minister David Cameron’s office said Parliament had been recalled to debate Britain’s response to a request to support the airstrikes. U.S. and coalition forces hit a dozen targets in Syria that included small-scale oil refineries that have been providing millions of dollars a day in income to the Islamic State, the U.S. Central Command said. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates took part, along with U.S. aircraft. Earlier, U.S. strikes damaged Islamic State vehicles in Syria near the Iraqi border town of Qaim, the U.S. Central Command said. It also reported hitting two Islamic State armed
vehicles west of Baghdad, as well as two militant fighting positions in northern Iraq. In a separate statement, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said the strikes in eastern Syria hit a staging area used by the militants to move equipment across the border into Iraq. Despite the start of the coalition campaign, Islamic State fighters continued their advance against Syrian Kurdish militiamen around the town of Ayn Arab, known to Kurds as Kobani, near the Turkish border, where refugees fleeing into Turkey reported the beheading of captives and the torching of homes. A Kurdish militiaman fighting to protect the city said Islamic State militants were less than half a mile (one kilometer) from the outskirts Wednesday. Weary refugees arriving in Turkey described atrocities at the hands of the Islamic State militants. Osman Nawaf, 59, said he saw about 50 bodies
hanging headless in the village of Boras when he passed it on his three-day walk from a village on the outskirts of Kobani. The fighting near Kobani could be seen from hilltops in Turkey. Kurds from Turkey and Syria cheered on the Kurdish fighters from one hilltop, while the fighters signaled back with mortar fire. Halil Aslan, a 48 year-old local villager in Turkey, recounted seeing Islamic State tanks roll into a village on the Syrian side. “They shelled the place with tanks and mortars,” he said. “We could hear them falling on those hills.” A video posted online showed what appeared to be Islamic State fighters toting assault rifles and fanning out across a dusty field in the Kobani area. A later clip showed a field cannon firing a shell toward a town located across a rolling expanse of brown fields, followed by a puff of smoke in the distance. The video appeared genuine and corresponded to other AP reporting of the events. In the opening salvo of the air campaign inside Syria on Tuesday, the U.S. also hit alQaida’s Syria branch, known as the Nusra Front. American officials said the strikes targeted the so-called Khorasan Group, a cell within the Nusra Front made up of hardened jihadis they said pose a direct and imminent threat to the United
States. On Wednesday, the Nusra Front said it was evacuating its compounds near civilian areas in Idlib and Aleppo provinces in northern Syria, according to the Aleppo Media Center activist group. The decision followed a U.S. airstrike on a Nusra Front base in the village of Kfar Derian that killed around a dozen fighters and 10 civilians, activists said. Another Syrian rebel group, Ahrar al-Sham, was also clearing out of its bases, according to the Observatory. It said the group issued a statement calling for fighters to limit the use of wireless communication devices to emergencies, to move heavy weapons and conceal them, and to warn civilians to stay away from the group’s camps. Ahrar al-Sham has been among the most effective forces fighting to oust Assad in Syria’s civil war, and has also been on the front lines of a 9-month battle against the Islamic State group. But the U.S. has long looked askance at Ahrar al-Sham, considering it too radical and too cozy with the Nusra Front. An activist in Idlib who goes by the name of Mohammed confirmed the Ahrar al-Sham evacuations. He did not know of any strikes against the group, but said the fighters thought they would be targeted by the U.S.-led coalition because of their ultraconservative Islamic beliefs.
Red Cross team attacked while burying Ebola dead By BOUBACAR DIALLO and SARAH DiLORENZO Associated Press
CONAKRY, Guinea — A Red Cross team was attacked while collecting bodies believed to be infected with Ebola in southeastern Guinea, the latest in a string of assaults that are hindering efforts to control West Africa’s current outbreak. One Red Cross worker is recovering after being wounded in in the neck in Tuesday’s attack in Forecariah, according to Benoit Carpentier, a spokesman for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Family members of the dead initially set upon the six volunteers and vandalized their cars, said Mariam Barry, a resident. Eventually a crowd went to the regional health office, where they threw rocks at the building. The attack is the most recent in a series that have plagued teams working to bury bodies safely, provide information about Ebola and disinfect public places. The most shocking was the abduction and killing last week in Guinea of eight people, health workers educating people about Ebola and the journalists
accompanying them. Ebola is believed to have infected more than 5,800 people in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal. The unprecedented size and sweep of the outbreak have led governments to impose severe measures to control it, like a recent nationwide lockdown in Sierra Leone to look for the sick and spread information. On Wednesday, Sierra Leone said 30 more cases uncovered during the shutdown tested positive for Ebola, raising the total number discovered over the three days to 160. Resistance to efforts to control the disease — from outright denials that Ebola exists to fears that the very people sent to combat it are in fact carriers — has frustrated efforts to end or slow the disease’s spread in all three of the most affected countries, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, say officials. In April, Doctors Without Borders briefly pulled out its team from the Guinean town of Macenta after their clinic was stoned. In Liberia, the homes of some of the infected have been attacked. Last week, Red Cross workers were threatened in Sierra Leone, Carpentier, the Red

The disease is so new to this part of the world and so terrifyingly lethal that many people fear all outsiders associated with Ebola, even if they are coming to help, said Meredith Stakem, a health and nutrition adviser for Catholic Relief Services. In addition, many people in these communities may not be familiar with even basic biological concepts of disease transmission, and Ebola is contradicting what they do know. “There’s not a lot of diseases that can be transmitted by corpses,” she said. “It’s hard for people to comprehend that the dead body is actually a threat.” Ebola is spread by bodily fluids including sweat and corpses are particularly infectious.

Student walk-outs in Jefferson County continued for the third straight day as students from Chatfield High School and Dakota Ridge High School protest Thursday, in Littleton, Colo.

Student education protest grows LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) — In the largest of a series of ongoing student protests, about 700 young people gathered in suburban Denver to rally in opposition to a new set of high school history standards proposed by a conservative-led school board.

is deeply personal and rooted in tradition, especially in many parts of West Africa where the washing of bodies is common. It is often the teams trying to prevent those practices that have been targeted, said Carpentier. Much of the resistance is in remote, insular areas. “It has gotten better,” he said. “The problem is it has to be 100 percent” or the virus will persist. The conventional methods used to control Ebola — isolating sick people and tracing all their contacts — are buckling under the sheer size of the outbreak. On Wednesday, the World Health Organization offered hope that there may soon be another way to control the disease, saying there may be sufficient quantities of a vaccine by

Obama to expand ocean preserve
Around the World UN chief calls on world leaders to find ‘seeds of hope’ in world seeming to fall apart UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations chief called for world leaders Wednesday to join an international campaign to ease the plight of nearly unprecedented numbers of refugees, the displaced and victims of violence in a world wracked by wars and the swift-spreading and deadly Ebola epidemic. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said leaders must find and nurture “seeds of hope” in the turmoil and despair of a world that may seem like it’s falling apart with people crying out for protection from greed and inequality. “Not since the end of the Second World War have there been so many refugees, displace people and asylum seekers. Never before has the United Nations been asked to reach so many people with emergency food assistance and other lifesaving supplies,” Ban said in his state of the world address at the opening of the U.N. General Assembly’s annual ministerial meeting. Several leaders including Jordan’s King Abdullah and Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressed the challenges — financial and social — of hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria. Abdullah, whose country is sheltering nearly 1.4 million Syrians, said the refugee crisis “demands a global solution.”
“Imminent attack plotting” may not mean an attack is all that imminent WASHINGTON — Smart people in the administration have spent the last two days telling the American people that U.S. strikes against the Khorasan Group were necessary to disrupt “imminent attack plotting” against U.S. and Western interests. They warned that members of the shadowy Khorasan Group, an al-Qaida offshoot, were “nearing the execution phase” of an attack in the U.S. or Europe. They spoke of “active plotting that posed an imminent threat.” People may have come away with the impression that the terror group was on the brink of pulling off something awful. Perhaps not.
Domestic violence in the US: Statistics still alarming despite big decline 20 years ago
For weeks, amid allegations involving several NFL players, domestic violence has been the focus of intense national attention. Does the turmoil reflect a worsening epidemic of domestic violence, or has the U.S. in fact made great strides to curtail it? The answer is complicated. On one hand, domestic violence committed by intimate partners — current or former spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends — has declined by more than 60 percent since the mid-1990s, according to Justice Department figures. Yet the dramatic decrease from 1995 through 2004 has largely stalled, with the numbers stabilizing at a level that appalls people in the prevention field. The latest federal figures for “serious” intimate partner violence — sexual assault or aggravated physical assault — showed 360,820 such incidents in 2013, or roughly 1,000 per day. Meanwhile, many organizations that serve the victims are struggling to meet rising demand, particularly in the past few weeks since a graphic video surfaced of suspended Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice knocking his future wife unconscious in a casino elevator. Shelters are turning away victims for lack of beds and staff; the National Domestic Violence Hotline could handle barely half of the 8,500 calls that came during the eight days after the Rice video appeared. “Statistically, are we improving?” asked the hotline’s president, Katie Ray-Jones. “From a service standpoint, it doesn’t feel like it.”

UNITED NATIONS — President Barack Obama is carving out a wide swath the Pacific Ocean for an expanded marine preserve, putting the waters off-limits to drilling and most fishing in a bid to protect fragile underwater life. The revamped expanded Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument will cover 490,000 square miles — an area roughly three times the size of California — and will become the largest marine preserve in the world. Millions of seabirds, sea turtles and marine mammals live in the biorich expanse included by the new monument, which will also add new protections for more than 130 “seamounts” — underwater mountains where rare or undiscovered species are frequently found. The move to broaden the George W. Bush-era preserve comes as Obama seeks to show concrete presidential action to protect the environment, de-

At the United Nations this week, Obama announced new U.S. commitments to help other nations deal with the effects of climate change, as world leaders seek to galvanize support for a major global climate treaty to be finalized next year in Paris.
Obama will sign a memorandum expanding the ocean preserve on Thursday, said White House officials, who requested anonymity to discuss the plan ahead of Obama’s official announcement. The memorandum bans commercial fishing, deepsea mining and other extraction of underwater resources, by recreational fishing will con-

Turkish leader says world not doing enough By ZEINA KARAM Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS — The president of Turkey on Wednesday accused the international community of doing too little to stem the flow of foreign fighters to Syria and slammed the U.N. Security Council’s inaction on some of the world’s most pressing issues. In two separate speeches in New York, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey was playing a leading role in fighting terrorism but was not being aided by the rest of the world. “We can stop this flow of foreign terrorist fighters only if our friends and partners awaiting our cooperation show, themselves, a sort of cooperation as well,” Erdogan said. “This is not a fight to be carried out solely by Turkey,” he added. He spoke at a Security Council meeting where members unanimously approved a resolution requiring countries to prevent the recruitment and transport of foreign fighters preparing to join terrorist groups. It was an unusual Security
Council meeting chaired by President Barack Obama and attended largely by heads of state for the 15 member states. U.S. intelligence officials estimate some 12,000 foreigners have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the Islamic State group, which has many as 31,000 fighters. Turkey, a key backer of the rebels seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad, has been criticized for allowing thousands of fighters to cross into Syria across its borders. Erdogan said the threat of foreign terrorist fighters starts “the moment these individuals depart from the source countries” and that countries concerned have not cooperated in a timely fashion. Still, he said, recent information sharing by source countries helped Turkey in its effort to stem the flow. About 3,600 individuals have been included on the “no entry list” and nearly 1,000 foreigners have been deported by the Turkish government, Erdogan said. He said Turkey sacrificed greatly, taking in more than a
3 defendants surrender to police to face charges in beating of gay couple PHILADELPHIA — A week after online sleuths used social media to identify suspects in the beating of a gay couple, three suburban Philadelphia defendants surrendered to police Wednesday and were charged in what one defense lawyer called merely a “fist fight that got out of hand.” Police said 24-year-old Philip Williams of Warminster; 24-year-old Kathryn Knott of Southampton, the daughter of a suburban police chief; and 26-year-old Kevin Harrigan of Warrington turned themselves in Wednesday morning. They were charged with criminal conspiracy and two counts each of aggravated and simple assault, and reckless endangerment. The victims told police a group hurled gay slurs and beat them when the two parties passed on a Philadelphia street Sept. 11. One man suffered serious facial injuries, including an orbital fracture, and had his jaw wired. Williams’ attorney, Fortunato Perri Jr., said the suspects were celebrating a friend’s birthday at a city restaurant prior to the encounter. He said the case did not involve anyone’s sexual orientation, but was instead a “mutual confrontation” in which his client “was not the aggressor.” “In no way, shape or form was this incident related to anyone’s sexual orientation,” Perri said outside the police station where his client surrendered Wednesday. “This was a mutual confrontation that started because two individuals got into an argument out in the street.”
Algerian extremists linked to Islamic State group behead French hostage ALGIERS, Algeria — An Algerian splinter group from alQaida has beheaded a French hostage over France’s airstrikes on the Islamic State group, in a sign of the possible widening of the crisis in Iraq and Syria to the rest of the region. The killing of Herve Gourdel, a mountaineer who was kidnapped while hiking in Algeria, was a “cowardly assassination,” a visibly upset French President Francois Hollande said Wednesday, but he vowed to continue the military operation. “Herve Gourdel is dead because he is the representative of a people — ours — that defends human dignity against barbarity,” Hollande said on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York. “France will never cede to terrorism because it is our duty, and, more than that, because it is our honor.” On Friday, France joined the U.S. in conducting airstrikes on the Islamic State group in Iraq. Two days later, the Islamic State group called on Muslims to attack foreign targets, and the response in Algeria raised the specter of attacks on Westerners elsewhere. Gourdel, a 55-year-old mountaineering guide from Nice, was seized Sunday night while hiking in the Djura Djura mountains of northern Algeria. His Algerian companions were released. — The Associated Press C
million Syrian refugees in addition to more than 140,000 Syrian Kurdish refugees last week alone. “Despite our sacrifices and our expectations of solidarity, we have not received the kind of support we’ve been looking for from the international community,” he said. Erdogan has said he would offer military help but has been vague about exactly how he intends to answer the American call to join Washington and a number of Arab states as they continue attacks on the Islamic State group that has taken over wide swaths of Syria and Iraq in a brutal assault and a bid to establish what the radical group calls a Islamic Caliphate. Earlier in the day, in his speech to the U.N. General Assembly, Erdogan said the U.N. has repeatedly failed to act, citing the Syrian civil war which has killed more than 200,000 people and this summer’s Gaza War in which more than 2,000 people died. He also criticized the U.N. for what he termed the legitimization of Egyptian Presi-
dent Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi who spoke from the same podium shortly before. He said the democratically elected President of Egypt, Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, was overthrown by a coup, and the U.N. chose to legitimize the person who conducted this coup — a reference to El-Sissi. “We should respect the choice of the people in the ballot box. If we want to support coups...then why does the United Nations exist?” he said. Turkey had forged a close alliance with Morsi and strongly criticized the military coup in Egypt which ousted his government. He has described el-Sissi as a “tyrant,” prompting Egypt’s Foreign Ministry to summon the Turkish charge d’affaires. Erdogan said the U.N. as a world body should be more “brave” in addressing world problems. “The world is bigger than the five,” he said of the five permanent Security Council members, accusing them of rendering the U.N. ineffective.

Stewart avoids charges in Ward case NASCAR legend clear of any wrongdoing in Aug. 9 incident, family of deceased still pressing JENNA FRYER Associated Press
CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (AP) — After more than six weeks in limbo, NASCAR star Tony Stewart finally got the news he had been hoping for. A grand jury that heard testimony from more than two dozen witnesses, including accident reconstruction experts and drivers, and looked at photographs and video decided against bringing criminal charges against Stewart for the death of 20-year-old sprint car driver Kevin Ward Jr. during an Aug. 9 race. That doesn’t mean it’s over. A few hours after Ontario County District Attorney Michael Tantillo announced the grand jury’s decision in this upstate New York hamlet, the Ward family indicated in a statement read over the telephone by sister Kayla Herring that they will seek civil damages in the young driver’s death. “Our son got out of his car during caution when the race was suspended. All the other vehicles were reducing speed and not accelerating except for
Stewart, who intentionally tried to intimidate Kevin by accelerating and sliding his car toward him, causing the tragedy,” the family said Wednesday. “The focus should be on the actions of Mr. Stewart. This matter is not at rest and we will pursue all remedies in fairness to Kevin.” The family might have a difficult task: Tantillo disclosed that Ward was under the influence of marijuana the night he died and said two different videos were enhanced, frames were isolated and viewed at at least three different speeds and finally overlaid with grids and data. Both showed Stewart had done nothing wrong. “The videos did not demonstrate any aberrational driving by Tony Stewart until the point of impact with Kevin Ward, at which point his vehicle veered to the right up the track as a result of the collision. Prior to that, his course was pretty straight,” said Tantillo. He added that toxicology evidence from Ward’s autopsy “indicates that at the time of operation he was under the influence of marijuana. The levels determined were enough to
impair judgment.” Stewart’s reaction was not one of celebration, and his statement had the same twinge of sadness that he’s carried since he returned to NASCAR three weeks ago following three weeks of seclusion after Ward’s death. The 43-year-old NASCAR superstar acknowledged the investigation was “long and emotionally difficult” but noted it allowed time for all the facts to be presented. “This has been the toughest and most emotional experience of my life, and it will stay with me forever. I’m very grateful for all the support I’ve received and continue to receive,” he said. “While much of the attention has been on me, it’s important to remember a young man lost his life. Kevin Ward Jr.’s family and friends will always be in my thoughts and prayers.” David Weinstein, a former state and federal prosecutor in Miami who is not involved in the case, said the toxicology evidence will make it difficult for the Wards to win a lawsuit against Stewart. He said the Ward statement showed the family was “clearly upset
and at a vulnerable point.” “Hopefully, someone will explain to them that Kevin will be dragged through the mud during a civil trial,” he said. “After the results of the toxicology report and the findings of the grand jury, the deep pockets will not be willing to settle this lawsuit so quickly.” The decision came nearly seven weeks after Stewart’s car struck and killed Ward, sending shock waves through the top racing series in the United States. The brash and popular NASCAR driver known as “Smoke” skipped three races as he grieved, and returned to racing in late August. One of the biggest stars in the garage, Stewart has 48 career Cup wins in 542 starts but is winless this year and did not make the championship Chase field. Sheriff Philip Povero spent weeks investigating, several times saying he did not have evidence to suggest Stewart meant to harm the other driver. Authorities said the first car to pass Ward had to swerve to miss hitting him. The front of Stewart’s car ap-
peared to clear Ward, but Ward was struck by the right rear tire and hurtled through the air. He died of blunt force trauma. The sheriff asked in the days after Ward’s death for spectators to turn over photos and videos of the crash as investigators worked to reconstruct the accident. Among the things being looked at were the dim lighting, how muddy it was and whether Ward’s dark firesuit played a role in his death, given the conditions. Tantillo also said two videos — one from a fan, the other from the tiny track in Canandaigua — had been examined and enhanced. The grand jurors “were not considering whether anybody else was at fault,” Tantillo said. “However, I am sure from their deliberations and discussions that the fact that Kevin Ward was observed running basically down two thirds of the track, into a hot track, into the middle of other cars that were racing, played a big, big factor in their decision,” he said. “Realistically, I think judgment is probably the most important factor in this case.”
Palmer netters nip Kenai in 5 Moose push Kardinals to tiebreaking set, win in extra points By JEFF HELMINIAK Peninsula Clarion
The host Kenai Central volleyball team got a lot of little victories Wednesday, but it was Palmer that came away with a big win. The Moose came back from a 20-14 deficit in Game 4 to force a Game 5, then saved two match points in Game 5 for a 17-25, 25-10, 16-25, 25-23, 1816 victory. Palmer moves to 2-0 in the Northern Lights Conference and 2-1 overall, while the Kards drop to 0-3 in the league and 2-3 overall. Kenai coach Tracie Beck said the match showed how far her squad has come, but also the specific ways her team needs to improve. “In my time here, we’ve never taken a game off of Palmer and Palmer has never had to take a timeout for strategy purposes,” said Beck, in her third year as varsity coach. “Both those things happened tonight.” Beck also liked the way her team kept fighting back in the back-and-forth affair. “We’ve never kept fighting back like that,” she said. “When the other team comes back at us like that, we usually stay down.” Palmer coach Steve Reynolds said his squad also got a lot out of the contest. “As a coach, I love playing five-game matches,” Reynolds said. “I’m competitive and I like to win them, but they are very valuable even if you lose.” Abby Beck, who had 17 digs, 15 assists, seven kills and three aces, served out four straight points early in Game 1 for a 5-1 lead. Palmer never recovered. “I have some issues with the first game,” Reynolds said. “We played like a team that had been on the bus all day.” But Mariah McNamara, who had a monster night with 19 kills, got the Moose going in Game 2 by serving out the first eight points to spark the victory.
“She’s our leader,” Reynolds said of McNamara, who is in her third year of varsity play. “She leads with her game and she’s our emotional leader.” But the Kards fought right back in Game 3, with Sierra Hall, who had five kills, serving to a 5-0 lead. Palmer cut the gap to 12-11, but three service points from Alexis Baker pushed Kenai to an 18-13 lead and eventual victory. In the fourth game, the Kards were primed for a victory when Alli Steinbeck put down a kill for a 20-14 lead, but Reynolds called timeout and the Moose began to come back, closing with eight of the final nine points of the game. “We tend to be fighters, traditionally, like that,” Reynolds said. “We don’t tend to just crumple up. We’ll get beat, but we’ll get beat fair and square.” In Game 5, neither team led by more than three points. Kenai had match point at 14-13, but a hitting error tied the game up. The Kards also had match point at 15-14, but put the serve out. Kenai saved one match point, but McNamara ended the match with a stuff block. “We had them in Game 4 and we had them in Game 5, we just didn’t finish,” Beck said. “They were swinging to win and we were putting the ball back in play. That’s not good enough at this level.” Beck said the experience can serve as a springboard to better things. “There’s still room to grow,” Beck said. “Games like this show how close we are. “We look forward to practice and working on finishing games like this.” Kiana Harding had eight kills for Kenai, while Amber Walters had 16 assists and Jamie Bagley had 26 digs. For Palmer, Carly Venzke had 25 digs, Allie McPheters had 16 assists and Holly Corbin had a pair of aces. Kenai hosts Colony today at 5:30 p.m., while Palmer travels to play Soldotna at 6 p.m.
Bledsoe back to Suns BOB BAUM AP Sports Writer
PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns and point guard Eric Bledsoe have reached agreement on a five-year, $70 million contract, capping a long, sometimes-tense negotiation to keep him in the desert. The deal Wednesday is considerably more than the four-year, $48
million the Suns initially offered but well below the five-year, $80 million-plus maximum contract Bledsoe’s agent, Rich Paul, sought for the restricted free agent. The sides didn’t budge in the negotiations until talks finally progressed in the last few days. “All summer, I knew that I really would be most comfortable coming back to Phoenix because of the great fans.”

Jones accused of paying for silence NOMAAN MERCHANT Associated Press
DALLAS (AP) — An Oklahoma woman says in a lawsuit that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones paid her for at least four years to prevent her from reporting an alleged sexual assault. Jana Weckerly’s attorney, Thomas Bowers, filed an updated lawsuit Monday that accuses Jones of forcibly touching Weckerly’s genitals and kissing her on the lips without her consent more than 5 years ago, then bullying her into not reporting the alleged attack. The lawsuit seeks more than $1 million in damages. Jones has denied Weckerly’s allegations and the Cowboys on Wednesday referred to an earlier statement from Jones attorney Levi McCathern calling
the claims “completely false.” “This is nothing more than an attempt to embarrass and extort Jerry Jones,” McCathern said in the statement made immediately after the lawsuit was initially filed Sept. 8. Bowers did not return a phone message Wednesday afternoon. Both sides have cited a gag order issued in the case since the suit was first filed as reason for declining additional comment. The updated version of the lawsuit filed this week, parts of which were blacked out when publicly released per a judge’s order, claims Jones and the Cowboys sent money to Weckerly’s bank account from 2009 until at least July 2013. The lawsuit says her bank records can prove the payments occurred, though no records are included in her court filing. C
She also accused Jones, the Cowboys and a longtime lawyer for Jones of taking her cell phone’s memory card, which contained photos that were then leaked and posted on the Internet. A hearing on Friday is expected to address whether the lawsuit was filed too late due to a 5-year statute of limitations. Weckerly’s updated lawsuit accuses Jones of working to keep her from reporting the assault until after the statute of limitations expired. A Dallas police spokesman on Wednesday said he could not confirm whether an assault was reported to police, citing the department’s policies on keeping any such reports confidential if they are filed. The lawsuit does not say where the alleged assault occurred or on what date.
Cassel out for year EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings quarterback Matt Cassel will miss the season with broken bones in his left foot, and right guard Brandon Fusco will also be out for the rest of the year because of a pectoral muscle injury. The Vikings placed Cassel and Fusco on injured reserve Wednesday. Both players were hurt Sunday at New Orleans. “You work so hard in the offseason to give yourself an opportunity to go out there and play, and then to have it happen this early in the season, especially with the belief that I have in this team, the thoughts of going on and having a lot of success this year, and for it to happen this early is super devastating to me,” Cassel said.

cCutchen homered for Pittsburgh’s only runs, and the Pirates missed a chance to move up in the NL Central race, falling to Atlanta. The Pirates, who clinched a playoff spot on Tuesday night, stayed 1½ games behind divisionleading St. Louis. Pittsburgh lost for only the fourth time in its last 19 games. Pirates catcher Russell Martin left in the fifth inning with tightness in his left hamstring.
TIGERS 6, WHITE SOX 1 DETROIT (AP) — Justin Verlander pitched eight impressive innings and the Detroit Tigers clinched a postseason spot, rallying after benches cleared in the sixth inning to beat the White Sox. The Tigers lead the AL Central by two games over Kansas City. Detroit was assured of at least a wild-card spot when Seattle lost.
INDIANS 6, ROYALS 4 CLEVELAND (AP) — Yan Gomes hit a three-run homer, Michael Brantley got three more hits and the Cleveland Indians stayed in the AL wild-card chase for at least one more day by beating Kansas City. A loss would have eliminated the Indians, but after blowing a 3-0 lead, they rallied and moved within 3½ games of Kansas City and Oakland in the wild-card standings. There are four days left in the regular season.
BLUE JAYS 1, MARINERS 0 TORONTO (AP) — Mark Buehrle pitched eight shutout innings to reach 200 innings for the 14th consecutive season, Ryan Goins drove in the only run and the Toronto Blue Jays pushed Seattle closer to playoff elimination. Buehrle (13-10) allowed three hits, walked one and struck out 10, one shy of his season high. He left to his second standing ovation of the night after Chris Taylor’s leadoff single in the ninth. He finished the season with 202 innings.
ANGELS 5, ATHLETICS 4 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Howie Kendrick doubled and drove in three runs, and the AL West champion Los Angeles Angels held off the playoff-hopeful Oakland Athletics.
The A’s and Kansas City are tied for the AL wild-card spot. Angels star Mike Trout left the game before the top of the fifth with a stomach illness.

BREWERS 5, REDS 0 CINCINNATI (AP) — Kyle Lohse pitched a two-hitter and drove in a run as the Milwaukee Brewers forestalled elimination from the playoffs with a win over Cincinnati. Lohse (13-9) gave up a pair of singles by Jack Hannahan in his second shutout of the season.
PHILLIES 2, MARLINS 1 MIAMI (AP) — Kyle Kendrick pitched seven innings, had three hits and drove in a run, Jonathan Papelbon closed in his first appearance since being suspended and the Philadelphia Phillies beat Miami. Papelbon, who completed a seven-game suspension Sunday, earned his 38th save in 42 chances with a scoreless ninth. Major League Baseball penalized Papelbon because he made a lewd gesture and then bumped an umpire after blowing a save against the Marlins on Sept. 14.
RED SOX 11, RAYS 3 BOSTON (AP) — Anthony Ranaudo pitched seven strong innings, and Garin Cecchini hit his first major league home run to help the fifth-place Boston Red Sox beat the fourth-place Tampa Bay. Ranaudo (4-3) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk, striking out two to snap a three-game losing streak. The victory was the 69th of the season for the defending AL East and World Series champions, who need one more win to beat their total from 2012 — their only season under Bobby Valentine.
RANGERS 5, ASTROS 1 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Lisalverto Bonilla became the first pitcher in Rangers history to win his first three career starts with a victory over the Astros. Bonilla (3-0), promoted Sept. 2 from Triple-A Round Rock, allowed four hits and struck out seven in six scoreless innings.
PADRES 4, ROCKIES 3 SAN DIEGO (AP) — Joe Wieland earned his first big league win, and Tommy Medica hit a three-run home run and a replayaided double to lead the Padres to a victory against Colorado in their home finale.

NFL Week 4: Quick turnaround for teams BARRY WILNER AP Pro Football Writer
Nothing is worse than being hit by a slew of injuries in a Sunday game. Except, of course, having to then play on Thursday. Just ask the Washington Redskins. Washington listed nearly a dozen players on its injury report heading into the primetime NFC East matchup with the Giants. Still, Washington, tied for No. 23 in the AP Pro32 with Cleveland, is a 3 1-2 point favorite over the No. 25 Giants. On defense alone, cornerback DeAngelo Hall went out for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in the loss to Philadelphia. While nickel cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) could be back after missing the first three games, safety Duke Ihenacho broke his left foot and is done for the year. End Jason Hatcher has a hamstring injury, and linebacker Brian Orakpo will wear a large cast to protect a torn ligament in his left middle finger. The offense, of course, is without quarterback Robert Griffin III (dislocated ankle), although Kirk Cousins has stepped in and performed well. Top running back Alfred Morris missed a portion of the Eagles game with a knee issue, but returned and seems OK. Tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) missed the Philly game, and guard Shawn Lauvao probably will sit out Thursday night, too. And now, a short week. “Now it’s a matter of getting plays installed Monday morning and getting players out there and practicing them,” coach Jay Gruden said. “We’re going through the same process, we just have got to do it a lot faster. You have got to watch film a little bit faster, you have got to go through the plays a little bit faster, you have got to write
down the plays faster. Yeah, it’s tough. I’m a little jittery right now. I’ve had 17 cups of coffee.” The caffeine will keep Gruden alert, but the injuries will keep the Redskins from winning. UPSET SPECIAL: GIANTS, 30-27 No. 26 Miami (minus 4 1-2) vs. No. 30 Oakland at London At least Raiders collected thousands of frequent flyer miles to get beaten in Foxborough, and now at Wembley. BEST BET, DOLPHINS 20-10 No. 17 Green Bay (minus 1) at No. 8 Chicago Packers on brink of becoming irrelevant. Desperation pays off. PACKERS, 24-21 No. 16 New Orleans (minus 3) at No. 19 Dallas

Giants-Redskins ready for action WASHINGTON (AP) — The New York Giants and Washington Redskins dragged their sore bodies out of bed this week knowing that the next game would be only four days after the previous one. Both teams also know that their respective 1-2 starts won’t cut it if the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles are going to keep coming from behind to win every game. So never mind the fact that no one seems to like the idea of playing a Thursday night game, or that Redskins coach Jay Gruden joked that he was “jittery” this week because of the “17 cups of coffee” he had consumed just to accommodate the cramped preparation schedule. Neither team can afford to
coast through this one and fall two games off the pace. “You fall too far behind the 8-ball this early in the season, it’s going to be tough sledding,” Gruden said, “and we’re already behind the 8-ball at 1-2.” New York defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka said the first thing coach Tom Coughlin said upon walking into the meeting room this week was: “In the division, in the division, in the division.” The Giants, who started 0-2 before beating the Houston Texans on Sunday, are playing their first NFC East game of the season. “We didn’t start the season the way we wanted to,” said New York’s Eli Manning, who has struggled to find a comfort zone with first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo’s playbook.

as the sports complex overhaul, then he may designate funds specifically for the proposal. Usually the legislative priorities are approved in late October or the beginning of November, Dixson said. Prioritizing early may give the projects a better chance at receiving funding on the state level. Dixson said with the plan to use the complex as a shelter or center of command for natural disasters such as the Funny River Horse Trail wildfire, the governor may consider allocating funding for the project. Murphy said she had concerns on whether or not the expanded facility would be able to make enough additional revenue to make up for increased maintenance, staffing and utility costs. Parks and Recreation Director Andrew Carmichael said it is unlikely the investment would be directly returned. “The only thing worse than a rink is a pool,” Carmichael said.

identified as a firearms instructor and expresses frustration with Begich. “How do you vote for Barack Obama’s anti-gun judges and still say you support the Second Amendment?” she asks. The ad ends with a picture of Sullivan helping one of his daughters as she takes aim with a rifle. “Dan Sullivan is proud to have the support of gun owners and NRA members from across Alaska who are fed up with Mark Begich’s votes for President Obama’s anti-gun judicial nominees,” Sullivan spokesman Mike Anderson said in an emailed statement. Begich countered that gun ownership in Alaska “means hunting to put food on the table, self-defense and recreation.
‘We’re ahead of the game, and trying to be proactive. The city is eagerly seeking state funding to make it a reality.’ — Soldotna City Engineer Kyle Kornelis Dixson said he views the complex as a public service, much like the Joyce K. Carver Soldotna Public Library. The city makes virtually no money off of the service, but its function is invaluable in the community, he said. The ten projects that made it onto the priorities draft Kornelis presented at a public work session Wednesday were taken directly from Soldotna’s Five Year Capital Plan FY20152019, he said. The council will review the plan and vote on the resolution at its Oct. 15 meeting. Kelly Sullivan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the strongest differences between my opponent and me are our records, and my rating from the NRA reflects that.” In weighing judicial nominees, Begich said he always considers a broad set of issues, including Alaskans’ right to privacy from government wiretapping and the need to protect the rights of Alaska’s women. At the time of Sotomayor’s confirmation in 2009, Begich said he made clear Alaskans’ strongly held views on the right to bear arms and said he was convinced she would not be an activist judge. In 2010, Begich made similar comments about Kagan. The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund has endorsed Republican U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner over Democratic Sen. Mark Udall in Colorado, and Republican Thom Tillis over Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan in North Carolina.

production of LNG in the U.S. is now more than 50 percent less expensive on an energyequivalent basis than marine residual fuel and marine distillate fuel,” Doyle said. “It is projected that this relative price advantage will continue, and even increase, through 2035. This has opened up an opportunity for significant annual fuel cost savings when converting marine vessels that use petroleum fuel to natural gas operation.” The findings come as large vessel operators attempt to comply with tougher near-shore emissions regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency known as the Emission Control Area, or ECA. Enacted by the U.S. and Canada in 2012 within the structure of the International Maritime Organization pollution prevention treaty known as Marpol, the ECA currently requires ships operating within 200 miles of the U.S. and Canadian coasts to burn fuels containing less than 1 percent sulfur. On Jan. 1, 2015, the requirement tightens to allow only more expensive fuels with less than 0.1 percent sulfur content. Cruise companies and marine transporters alike have said the fuel restrictions will significantly increase their operating costs, burdens they will have to pass on to their customers. Some vessel operators have agreed to add sulfur “scrubbers” to their ships as a way to
filter emissions and continue burning standard fuels. Totem Ocean Trailer Express Inc., or TOTE, one of two companies that offer regular freight service to the Port of Anchorage, is switching the M/V Midnight Sun and North Star to run on LNG. The 840foot Orca Class freight ships each make one round trip per week between Anchorage and Tacoma, Wash. TOTE originally planned on converting the vessels’ engines to LNG but has ultimately decided to replace them, according to company spokeswoman Tyler Edgar. The Midnight Sun’s engine swap will be done by March 2016, with the North Star following about a year later, Edgar wrote. An agreement with the EPA extended TOTE’s fuel switch deadline to September 2016 because it is making such a drastic, long-term change. Improving the marine LNG infrastructure and developing crew and first responder training are also needed to promote use of the cleaner-burning fuel, according to the report. The infrastructure portion deals mainly with the ways a vessel can be fueled with LNG — truckto-ship, shore-to-ship and shipto-ship. Maritime Commissioner Doyle said shore-to-ship and truck-to-ship are the primary means of refueling in Norway, one of the countries further along in a transition to LNGpowered vessels than the U.S. Truck-to-ship fueling is an acceptable option for small vessels — a standard LNG tanker
Around Alaska Ex-TV reporter speaks at pot hearing ANCHORAGE — A former Anchorage television reporter who quit her job with four-letter send-off got attention again at a public hearing about Alaska’s pot legalization measure. Charlo Greene took the microphone at the Tuesday meeting and aimed criticism at the opposition group, called Big Marijuana Big Mistake. KTUU reports she used an expletive and accused one member of lying to Alaskans. Greene abruptly quit during a live segment Sunday on KTVA. She announced she owned a marijuana business, and
trailer can hold between 10,000 and 13,000 gallons of fuel — and as an interim or start-up solution to test the market before more investments are made, but is not a feasible large-scale option, the report states. While an average tug needing about 25,000 gallons of fuel would mean 2 trucks, a large container vessel capable of carrying 2 million gallons of fuel would require more than LNG trucks to fill it, the report concludes. It notes that trucked LNG is potentially a more dangerous option, as it would add tanker trucks to congested roads in port cities. Additionally, LNG truck drivers might not be dedicated to the refueling process full-time and thus may not be fully aware of risks and regulations associated with the operation. Permanent shoreside facilities have opposite qualities. “Although the (shore-toship) option has great flexibility in the design for transfer rate and volume, it is the least flexible with respect to geography,” the study authors wrote. “It must be sited at a fixed location, relatively close to the dock or jetty. Heat loss from long sections of pipeline and costs of cryogenic-service pipelines necessitate this proximity constraint.” If a ship is required to moor at a dedicated dock to refuel without cargo transfer taking place, the time benefits of shipto-shore fueling would likely evaporate, it states. TOTE’s Edgar wrote that the company is working on
a “phased approach” with its LNG vendors. Eventually, TOTE expects to fuel from shore tanks, but an interim solution has not been determined while that infrastructure is developed in Northern Washington, she wrote. Depending on sea conditions, the Midnight Sun and North Star are projected to use about 400,000 gallons of LNG per round trip. The study also pushes for the adoption of best practices and acceptable risk guidelines for fueling. Establishing safety zones during LNG transfer and effective training regimens for truck drivers will be critical to minimizing risks associated with the highly-flammable fuel, according to the study. An attempt to quantify the risk of actual fueling operations found the truck-to-ship method to be the safest once the LNG is on-site. If a one-in-10,000 chance of fatality for someone continuously involved in LNG fueling is deemed acceptable, a safety zone for truck-to-ship would be 46 meters for other individuals. With shore-to-ship that zone increases to 57 meters, and to 70 meters with shipto-ship operations. The truck-to-ship method is considered the safest while fueling because it involves the smallest amount of fuel. For the other methods, tank rupture is not considered a realistic concern in shore-to-ship. Taking advantage of the mobility of the operations and conducting them away from port facilities could increase ship-to-ship bystander safety.

udience members attending the Murder Mystery Dinner Theater, will find themselves amidst a séance, complete with disembodied voices, ghosts and a fortune teller to stir the pot. Frontier Community Services and the Kenai Senior Connection Inc. are hosting the play titled “Murder by Magic,” for their annual fundraiser. The audience-participation Murder Mystery by Eileen Moushey, will not only require onlookers to assist the character of Simone The Psychic contact the dead, but it will be up to them to find out who murdered one of those very spirits. Audience participation will be heavily emphasized, said director and hostess of “Murder by Magic,” Ann Shirnberg. After some thought, she said the performance will resemble a giant, real life version of the Clue board game. Between meals, the audience will be fact-finding, and whoever guesses the mur-
derer first will receive prizes, Shirnberg said. The answer will be revealed in the final act after dessert, she said. “It is a lot of fun,” Shirnberg said. “The play is comedic, and actors have a great time with it.” It is a tradition for the Senior Center to host the dinner theater, Shirnberg said. Frontier became involved five years ago, and it has been just as successful ever since, she said. Due to the content, the play is intended for adults and not suited for young audiences, Shirnberg said. Sometimes parents will bring their older teenagers. Regardless, Shirnberg said, “the play usually sells out.” Each ticket is $40, Shirnberg expects more than 100 people will make it through the doors of the senior center to take part in the interactive performance. The local actors and actresses in this year’s play have been preparing since Sept. 2, Shirnberg said. The cast includes Terri ZopfSchoessler, Yvette Tappana, Tim Tucker, Natalie Tucker, Ian McEwen and Donna Shirnberg who will play the siblings,
daughter, lovers and friends who make up the rest of the characters involved in the mysterious séance, she said. Many of the actors are well known in the community, have acted in previous dinner plays, and some have backgrounds with the Kenai Performers and Triumvirate Theatre, Shirberg said. It is a quick turnaround, Shirberg said. Actors are given the script at the beginning of the month and rehearse three times a week until public performances begin. On the dinner menu is a fruit, cheese and cracker platter appetizer, the entree is chicken Wellington, a zucchini, red pepper and mushroom medley, rosemary baby potatoes, dinner roll and for dessert is strawberry crepes. Doors at the Kenai Senior Center will open at 6 p.m., dinner will be at 7 p.m. and the show will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at Charlotte’s Restaurant in Kenai and River City Books in Soldotna.

You know all about Santa Bookworm Sez Sorry to say, but know all about Santa. Yeah, you learned the truth about the Jolly Old Elf years ago, but you let your younger sibs believe. Same with the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy: get past grade school and you’re a little old for that stuff. So if, in the new book “Skink – No Surrender” by Carl Hiaasen, fourteen-yearold Richard Sloan said he met a one-eyed, bearded, beak-wearing man-bear on a Florida beach, who’d believe him? Malley was almost never late. It’s true that she was a rebel and gave her parents plenty of grief, but late? No, Richard Sloan knew his cousin Mal hated tardiness, which is why he was surprised when she didn’t show up on their nightly turtle nest hunt.
Figuring that Malley was grounded (again), Richard decided to scout for egglaying loggerheads anyhow. He was sitting next to a turtle nest when he saw a drinking straw poking out of the ground – right before the sand exploded and a gigantic man burst from the beach, scaring the daylights out of Richard. The guy was well over six feet tall, with different colored eyes pointing in different directions. He was wearing an ancient army jacket, camo pants, and vulture beaks tied in his long, scraggly beard. When he said his name was Clint Tyree, Richard couldn’t wait to Google it. It turned out that Clint Tyree, college football star and Vietnam vet, had somehow gotten elected to the Florida governor’s office years ago. Halfway through his term, he disappeared. Rumors said he lived

“A Walk Among the Tombstones” — on the trail of two psychos “A Walk Among the Tombstones” Universal Pictures 1 hour 54 minutes The big movie this week was the YA scifi thriller “The Maze Runner,” but after two weeks of young adult misfires and several more scattered throughout the year (I’m looking at you “Divergent”), I just couldn’t do it. I read the series of books the film is based on and, frankly, wasn’t all that impressed. Naturally, since I decided to skip it, “The Maze Runner” is the number one movie in the country and getting relatively good reviews. The one I chose, on the other hand, “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” drew half the audience as did the tale of the maze-running teens, but it was solid, and it’s nice to see a movie made for grownups once in a while. Liam Neeson is Matthew Scudder, an unlicensed private detective working the

On the wagon now, the private eye solves mysteries and attends AA meetings with equal fervor. When a midlevel drug trafficker named Kenny Kristo contacts him for help finding his wife’s killer, Scudder initially declines, knowing this kind of work only leads to more trouble. But a down at the heels gumshoe can only stay out of the gutter for

Calle 13 are lead nominees for Latin Grammys By MESFIN FEKADU AP Music Writer
NEW YORK — Calle 13 is heading for Latin Grammy gold: The Puerto Rican band is the top competitor for this year’s awards. Eduardo Cabra of the group is nominated for 10 awards, including producer of the year, while the band is up for nine. The Recording Academy announced Wednesday that producer and songwriter Andres Castro has eight nominations and mastering engineer Tom Coyne has seven. Calle 13 have been Latin Grammy favorites since the band
broke on the scene with their 2005 self-titled debut. “Multiviral,” the band’s fifth album and first to be released on their own label, will compete for album of the year; “Respira El Momento” and “Ojos Color Sol” are up for song and record of the year. Those top three categories have 10 nominees each. Enrique Iglesias’ “Bailando,” a hit on Top 40 radio, is nominated for song and record of the year. Iglesias will compete for a total of five awards — as will the song’s co-star Descemer Bueno — when the show airs live Nov. 20 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Carlos Vives, who was the big winner last year with three Latin Grammys, is nominated for six awards, including album of the year. Others competing for the latter award include Marc Anthony, Ruben Blades, Camila, Paco de Lucia, Jorge Drexler, Fonseca, Jarabe De Palo and the trio of Lila Downs, Nina Pastori and Soledad. Carlos Santana’s “Corazon” was left out of the top category, but will compete for best contemporary pop vocal album. Calle 13’s other nominations include best urban music album, performance and song. The 15th annual Latin Grammys will air on Telemundo. AP Photo/Dolores Ochoa, File

Rare Warhol paintings headed to NYC auction By ULA ILNYTZKY Associated Press
NEW YORK — Elvis Presley. Marlon Brando. Andy Warhol. The A-list trifecta of music, film and art is going on the auction block at Christie’s in November. “Triple Elvis (Ferus Type)” and “Four Marlons” rate among Warhol’s most famous portraits. The monumental paintings, each nearly 7 feet high, have never appeared at auction before and could bring a combined total of $130 million when they go up for bid on Nov. 12. Christie’s said they are being sold separately, and estimates
for each were not yet available. The Elvis, executed in ink and silver paint in 1963, depicts the rock ‘n’ roll heartthrob as a cowboy, armed and shooting from the hip. The Brando silkscreen, created three years later, shows the Hollywood actor on a motorcycle and black leather jacket, an image that’s repeated four times. Both are being sold by German casino company WestSpiel, which acquired them in the late 1970s for one of its casinos. “Given the current strength of the market, especially for works by Andy Warhol, it is now the right moment to part from these works,” WestSpiel director Lothar Dunkel said in
a statement. Warhol produced a series of 22 images of Elvis. His “Double Elvis (Ferus Type)” sold for $37 million at Sotheby’s in 2012. The appetite for Warhol works appears unstoppable. Last fall, his “Silver Car Crash (Double Disaster)” sold at Sotheby’s for $105.4 million, an auction record for the artist. Brett Gorvy, Christie’s international head of post-war and contemporary art, said Warhol loved repetition and used it “both as a way of creating a narrative ... and a way of really commenting on society.” The repetition in “Triple El-
vis,” also had a cinematic feel, said Gorvy, adding, “You have that sense of cinematic motion of ultimately the gun shooting while it’s a static image.” Gorvy called the Brando extremely rare, with only one other four-times Brando in the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen. A “Double Marlon” sold at Christie’s for $32.5 million in 2008. “What’s fantastic about this is it’s painted on raw linen. So where the silver Elvis is painted on a sprayed surface, here the silk screen is literally impregnated into the raw linen,” said Gorvy. “It’s the only time that Warhol really tried this.”
This undated photo shows Andy Warhol’s “Four Marlons, “ which is going on the auction block at Christie’s this November.

fact, but after reading this book you’ll wish that Skink did. I mean, what can you say about an old guy who eats road kill, barely bathes, is moral and kind, but hates trouble? “Weirdly addictive.” That’s what you can say because author Carl Hiaasen’s main man – here in a teen novel for the first time – is someone you can’t resist. Indeed, the title character in “Skink – No Surrender” is outrageously, appealingly wild and the story is rompish with a surprisingly keen element of suspense, which will keep readers laughing and turning pages. Adult fans of Skink will run to find this book, but it’s mostly meant for readers age 14 and up. Still, you know you want it because “Skink – No Surrender” will make you say ho-ho-ho.
lived in the wilderness as a hermit called Skink; one post said Skink was dead, but Richard knew that wasn’t true. He’d met Clint “Skink” Tyree. And Skink knew where Malley was. She’d lied to her parents when she said she was leaving early for boarding school, and had instead run away with a man with a strange alias. But now there was trouble, few clues to her whereabouts, and a lot of places to hide in Florida’s Gulf Coast.

written noir-ish thriller, and you could do a lot worse on a Friday night at the movies. I was a little disappointed, however, that some of the deeper themes never really hit home. The AA, aspect, for one, feels kind of tacked on. As I understand it, in the novels, this element of Scudder’s life is integral, but here it felt a little forced. Also, the film’s timeframe is completely wasted. Setting the film in 1999 offers a great chance to ramp up the fear factor in the film by playing it against the mounting panic that some were experiencing leading up to Y2K. Instead, it becomes merely window dressing, playing out
in billboards and newspaper articles in the background. The Y2K phobia does provide our killers with a chance for a creepy line, which becomes the tagline for the film, but it’s never explored to any depth, making the 1999 setting a little pointless. Those issues aside, however, “A Walk Among the Tombstones” was definitely a walk worth taking. Grade: B “A Walk Among the Tombstones” is rated R for language, nudity, gruesome violence, and disturbing scenes which suggest torture.

HHHHYour imagination could go to extremes as you attempt to infuse a situation with a little more fun and creativity. Understand what is happening with a child or loved one. This person really thrives with your attention, support and caring. Tonight: Pretend that it’s the weekend. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Staying close to home might not be as pleasant as you would like. It is likely that someone you need to respond to will demand your feedback, if not your presence. Curb a tendency to go overboard with spending. Tonight: Happiest at home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Your personality will come out in a presentation or when having a discussion with a loved one. You will be more open to unexpected solutions than to traditional ones. Make sure to return all calls. Tonight: You can be found wherever the action is. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Sometimes you underestimate how much you have to offer. You could feel as if no one is listening to you. Just because you do not receive the rousing response you desire, it does not mean that you were not heard. Have patience, please. Tonight: Your treat. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Avoid being scattered at all costs. You might need to place limits on a situation that could irk you or cause you a problem. Your friends will be a major distraction, but one that you will appreciate. Say “yes” to the moment. Tonight: Just don’t be alone! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
By Leigh Rubin
HHHH You could be inordinately tired, as all the happenings around you could drain you far more than you realize. Try not to overreact. In fact, pull back if you suspect you are withered! Go for a walk, and handle important matters later. Tonight: Make tonight just for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You might want to use some of your high energy to help a child or loved one who could be off-kilter. You seem to find solutions where others cannot. Be direct in how you deal with a loved one. Spontaneity is the only path. Tonight: Out and about. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Be aware of your limits when dealing with a boss, friend or older relative. You could be taken aback by this person’s requests. Someone close, perhaps a family member, will chime right in and make a situation better than it has been. Tonight: Could go till the wee hours. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH Take an overview, and understand where others are coming from. Otherwise, what you see happening will make little to no sense. You might just decide to cut off a conversation with a difficult person. Tonight: Have a leisurely visit with a loved one. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You will get a better sense of where someone else is coming from. You could discover that a loved one simply might be reacting to you. Laughter will energize both of you and allow more fun. Count your change carefully. Tonight: Go with someone else’s choice.
Jeans leave dentist with the blues Dear Heloise: Please warn your readers — especially those with teenage girls — that certain brands of jeans can cause expensive damage. My friend’s daughter wore a pair to the dentist, sat on his yellow dental chair, and the blue dye was not colorfast and ruined a chair. She received a bill to repair the chair and for his lost wages while it was being repaired. My suggestion: When you first purchase jeans, wet a piece of white cloth and place it on the jeans. If the color transfers, return them to the store. When my friend told us about the dental mishap, another lady with us said she heard of someone damaging a quilt by sitting on it with black leather pants. — Kitty in Sugar Land, Texas Oh my! That’s pretty shocking, and a little crazy! The dentist’s insurance should have paid to get the chair repaired. A bill for lost wages is a stretch, depending how long the chair was out of commission, but maybe he had only one. Yes, most jeans (blue, black, etc.) will transfer (and lose) color over time. New ones are the worst for rubbing off on other materials. Test by rubbing the material with a white cloth or paper towel. You will see blue dye. — Heloise Sewing warning Dear Heloise: Years ago, my daughter stepped on a sewing needle that had gotten lost in the carpet pile. It broke off in her heel. Now when I finish any hand sewing, I knot the ends of the remaining thread together, making it more visible, before replacing the needle in the pincushion. — Anne P. in Ohio

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to 9 in the empty squares so that each row, each column and each 3x3 box contains the same number only once.

A baby born today has a Sun and Moon in Libra. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Sept. 25, 2014: This year you move into a period where your social life is highlighted. You will network professionally and expand your personal circle as well. You know what you want, and you have the ability to achieve it.

DEAR ABBY: I always thought that “Lana,” my wife of 14 years, and I had the perfect marriage. When I discovered she was having an affair, it hit me like a train wreck. After many weeks of trying to discover who she really is, I found out she has had several affairs throughout our marriage. I still love my wife and feel I could forgive her and regain my trust in her. The problem is, she says she is trying to recover from her actions, so she can no longer hear about my problems or respond to any of my questions. Lana is now saying I need to see someone to discuss our issues with. We are already seeing a marriage counselor, but I suspect he is too connected to us as a couple. What do you think? — LOST IN LIMBO DEAR IN LIMBO: I think the marriage counselor should have made clear to you and your wife that in order for trust to be rebuilt it takes LOTS of dialogue and listening on the part of both spouses. And painful as it may be for Lana, she owes you the answers to your questions. That said, I think she is correct in suggesting you talk to someone individually. With the help of a licensed psychotherapist — someone who is there JUST FOR YOU — you may be able to rationally
