In the news Plaintiff won’t appeal ballot lawsuit ruling





ANCHORAGE (AP) — The plaintiff in a lawsuit challenging the merged campaigns of two Alaska gubernatorial candidates will not appeal a judge’s ruling that an emergency order allowing the ticket was valid, he said Monday. Plaintiff Steve Strait said, however, that state lawmakers should enact a permanent regulation to address a legal “train wreck” — the label used by Superior Court Judge John Suddock in describing a gap in Alaska election statutes. Suddock sided with the state on Friday. The Sept. 2 emergency order was issued by Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, who was named in the lawsuit along with elections director Gail Fenumiai. The order paved the way for Democratic gubernatorial nominee Byron Mallott to join campaigns with independent gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker and run as Walker’s lieutenant governor after their lieutenant governor candidates withdrew from their races. The state maintained that Alaska statutes are silent on how to fill vacancies left by the withdrawal of a no-party candidate. The state argued that invalidating the order would derail the November election and disenfranchise voters, saying more than 2,400 overseas ballots have already been mailed out. Strait, an Alaska Republican Party district chair who filed the lawsuit Sept. 17, said he decided not to appeal for two reasons. One is the sheer expense of taking the case to the next level. The other is that Oct. 9 would be the earliest the high court could schedule oral arguments. That was too close to the Nov. 4 election, Strait said.

JUNEAU — Republican Gov. Sean Parnell clashed with his major rival, independent Bill Walker, on state spending and a gas-line project during a debate in Juneau on Monday. Parnell also sniped at Walker teaming up with Byron Mallott, who abandoned his Democratic bid for governor to be Walker’s running mate in order to create a ticket deemed to be more competitive with Parnell. Parnell said voters were disenfranchised by the partnership, which followed the August primary and resulted in the candidates’ initial running mates stepping aside. A judge has upheld the pairing. Walker, who lost the GOP primary to Parnell in 2010, said he wants a nonpartisan administration and to have a true team effort, with Mallott as a senior adviser. Parnell, whose running mate is Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan, said there can’t be co-governors. “The issue is not trying to be co-equal and make everybody happy,” Parnell said. The bipartisan coalition that governed the Senate for the first 3½ years of Parnell’s tenure “spent their way past their differences,” he said. The lieutenant governor can play an influential role, but the constitution says the buck stops with the governor, Parnell said. See DEBATE, page A-2

Candidates vie for Kenai council seats Holly Spann

Stories by DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion

Mike Boyle At the end of his third term on the Kenai City Council, Mike Boyle still has a vision for responsible development of Kenai. Boyle, a 25-year Kenai resident, is one of four candidates running for two vacant council seats in the Oct. 7 election. He said he has made it a priority to keep the interests of the citizens in mind, despite spending a majority of his time on the council as a minority voter. When the 2013 Kenai Comprehensive Plan failed in a referendum by a 5 to 2 ratio, Boyle was one of the two council members who voted against the plan before it went to the ballot. In 2009 when the city council battled for months over rezoning 14 parcels on the Kenai Spur Highway, Boyle was in the minority against the rezone. The proposition to repeal the council’s decision passed. “It has been a struggle my whole time (on city council) turning both sides of the highway out of town commercial,” he said. “We heard from a real strong group of people that want neighborhoods to be a sacred place. They don’t want encroachment of commercial developments in their neighborhoods.” He said he was against the comprehensive plan because it favored developmental sprawl, instead of the development of a city center. The plan was flawed and ignored the voice of the people, he said. “The amazing thing to me was 42 See BOYLE, page A-6

. . . Debate Continued from page A-1

Some of the loudest applause lines during the chamber of commerce event came on issues related to southeast Alaska, such as Parnell pledging support for a road out of Juneau and Walker saying the seat of government is here and people need to stop with the talk about moving the capital. But issues of state spending and the gas line — an issue on which Walker campaigned heavily during his unsuccessful challenge to Parnell during the 2010 GOP gubernatorial primary — dominated the debate, which took place in a nightclub, complete with a bar in the back and neon lights. Walker said the state, which has been leaning on savings to help balance the budget amid slumping oil production, is in a financial crisis. But Parnell said Walker has offered no solid plans for addressing the deficit. Parnell blamed the Senate bipartisan coalition for driving up spending, prompting hundreds of millions of dollars in vetoes. Parnell said he has worked to limit spending. Walker said he would put everything on the table and ask the departments for ways the state could work more efficiently. He said the “get-well card” the state had in the past — a progressive surcharge on oil production that helped the state benefit from price spikes — is gone because of last year’s passage of a new tax plan that was championed by Parnell. He said the state, which relies heavily on oil revenues to fund governmental operations, needs a fiscal plan. Both Walker and Parnell said they will not make changes to the new tax plan, which survived a voter-led referendum last month. Parnell said he would work to hold companies accountable for making billions of dollars in planned investments. Walker said he would make sure the public has information about how the tax plan is working. Parnell took issue with Walker saying in an interview with The Associated Press that the structure for a major liquefied natural gas project is fatally flawed C

because the state doesn’t have a seat at the negotiating table. Parnell said the state is a partner and that he had “everybody from Les Gara on the left to John Coghill on the right” voting for his plan on the gas line. He also said he believed Walker would kill the project “with his uncertainty and his indecision about which way to go with that.” Under the plan, the state’s interest in the pipeline and gastreatment plan would be owned by TransCanada, with the state having the option to buy some of that back. The state’s interests in liquefaction facilities would be held by the Alaska Gasline Development Corp. Other partners are BP, Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips.

Peninsula Clarion, Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Obituary Steven Allen Battershall Steven Allen Battershall was born to Eileen and Fred in Tucson, Arizona on February 16, 1955. He graduated from Tucson High School in 1973 and lived and travelled in the West until moving to Alaska in 1982. Steve settled on the Kenai Peninsula after living and working at the pulp mill in Ketchikan. He also lived in Nome for some time in the early 2000s. On August 17, 2014 he was called home by God. He was 59. He was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, David and Daniel. Steve was a genuine personality without pretense and always had good intentions from the heart. He had a gentle spirit and was an old soul. He loved dog mushing, hot water and coming home to Alaska. He will be missed by those who knew and loved him, especially Deborah Wilimas, his life partner of 33 years, and Florence Kershaw of Arizona, the woman who raised Steve and his 2 brothers.

. . . Navarre Continued from page A-1

since the Navarre family moved to Kenai in 1957. His father George Navarre served as Kenai Peninsula Borough mayor from 1966-1972 and was later Kenai city manager. Tim Navarre was first elected to public office in 1993 as an assemblyman for Kenai Peninsula Borough where he served nine years. He also was the chief of staff for borough mayor John Williams for three years. Most recently Navarre is currently in his second term on the Kenai Peninsula Borough School Board, which meets in the building named after his father. Navarre said he is running for re-election on city council because he would like to see the bluff erosion project come to completion. “It has been 20 years and finally we are at a stage where we can see progress,” he said. Navarre first took steps to address bluff erosion issues as a member of the borough assembly in the 1990s. He traveled to Washington, D.C., to talk with then U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens and got the process started to receive state and federal funding for Environmental Impact Studies. Earlier this year, Navarre

but thinks the council could use more female representation. “It can’t hurt to have a fresher, younger generation getting involved,” she said. In addition to being a mother and serving on a committee, Spann works full time at Carquest in Kenai. She has volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club, participated in breast cancer awareness events and is a committee member with Boy Scouts of America. Spann moved to Alaska in 1989 from Longview, Washington. She is married to David Spann and has two boys, Jessiah James, 11, and Cameron Tuttle, 8, and two girls, Arihanna Tuttle, 6, and Lillian Tuttle, 3. When she is not working she said she loves to take her kids to Municipal Park and play on the beach. One thing that could use improvement in Kenai is upgrades to the city parks, she said. The city’s plan to develop new playgrounds in Municipal Park with an Enchanted Forest theme next year has her excited, she said. “Having a family I really want to see our city grow and increase family activities,” she said. “Education is an important priority (for her kids) to give them an opportunity to grow.” With the potential growth expected with talk of the new LNG Alaska Gas Pipeline Project in Nikiski, Spann said the city of Kenai has a chance to capitalize on the economic developments more jobs and people could bring. Spann said in the future she


traveled to the nation’s capital with Kenai City Manager Rick Koch and met with Congressional delegates and representatives from the Army Corps of Engineers to petition for federal funding for the final feasibility study. In May, the city received three grants from the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development totaling $4 million for the bluff stabilization project. Navarre said thanks to the foresight from borough and city administration, the city is closer than ever to stabilizing the Kenai River bluff. “We have seen the bluff eroding in 20 years, which has impacted roads and has already captured one city street where water and sewer need to be relocated,” Navarre said. “Everybody working hard all these years should be thanked. It would be a shame for them to not be rewarded for all their hard work.” Before Navarre first ran for city council, he served one year on the Kenai Planning and Zoning Commission. Navarre is the planning and zoning commission council liaison. He said it is vital for the city to be proactive in planning and work with its neighbors to the north and south to prepare for the boom expected to hit the area. After the Comprehensive Plan referendum failed last

October, Navarre said the community had expressed concerns about protecting neighborhoods from commercial development. The commission would need to get back to work and update the plan to meet the citizen’s needs, he said. At the same time the city wants to improve areas and put in paved streets, water and sewer, he said. The city will continue to develop a planning document to find the best area for a business district based on how land is currently used with zoning codes, he said. “We need a document so the city and staff know what we are working toward,” Navarre said. “A lot of things come back to council and need to be voted on. Whether we vote up or down and make modifications that’s how change happens and the community will be involved the whole way.” Another priority for Kenai residents is expanding services for senior citizens, the fastest growing segment of the population, Navarre said. The city has taken steps provide more walking areas by constructing sidewalks in Old Town and adding benches, donated by community sponsors, to allow more user-friendly areas for people young and old to stop and enjoy the scenery, he said. “Our community values its

seniors and they give back to the community a number of different ways,” he said. Navarre said veterans make up a large portion of the Kenai population and he felt it was important for the city to take a stand and show support for the veteran’s memorial in Leif Hansen Memorial Park, despite the threat of a lawsuit to the city for cross symbol on the memorial. “Somebody will always be offended by something,” he said. “To me it is more about the community and what it stands for and it gets misinterpreted if you try to draw a line with a price. You have to stand up for veterans. There is no gray area in my mind.” Navarre said a good council is made up of a good mixture of people in the community so everyone has a voice. He said he brings knowledge of the where the city has been and the people that have made it what it is today. “It’s been a pleasure to serve my community in a number of different ways,” he said. “I will continue to be a positive part of the community and build on strengths. I don’t waste time on negatives, but will work to move the city forward.”

would like to see a small business district with more retail and restaurants that would encourage people to shop locally. She has a goal to open a small business that sells vintage antique items. One trait that makes a good council member is someone who is involved in many aspects of the city and talks to people in the community, she said. “I feel strongly that council members should take time to attend other meetings to get an idea of what’s going on,” Spann said. “I attend as many meetings as I can. It helps give me a huge understanding of what’s going on in different departments and committees.” While campaigning for city council, Spann said she has met a lot of interesting citizens who are passionate about what issues matter to them.

The biggest issue currently facing the city is the bluff erosion project, which has been a hot topic since before she arrived in Kenai. She said she has done some research and talked to people and believes the city is moving in the right direction. Spann said she believes the city has done a good job managing the personal-use fishery the last few years and the council has made a concerted effort to listen to the citizen’s complaints on certain issues. She said adjustments will still need to be made with user fees and beach access but is confident the city is taking the necessary steps. On the issue of the veteran’s memorial in Leif Hansen Park, Spann said she is passionate about the memorial staying as it is. She said she is glad the city has taken the stance to support

the veterans. She said it would be a bigger issue if the memorial were removed. “I 100 percent support there being a cross on the memorial,” she said. “A cross represents different things to everyone. I love that the city is sticking to their guns.” While she understands hard decisions are part of being an elected official she said it’s important to gather as much information possible to make the best-informed decision. “You can’t make everyone happy,” she said. “Until I face those decisions it’s hard to answer. Running for city council is not about me. It’s about the residents. It’s not what I think, but what everyone else thinks.”

What Others Say

Opponent needed No, no, no; it can’t be.

The Ketchikan High School football team’s final home game — the one during which seniors were scheduled to be honored — is canceled. Sitka, which was scheduled to be here Oct. 4, doesn’t have enough healthy players. But, there must be a team somewhere in the state — or Outside — that would like to visit Ketchikan in the fall and play one of the most promising teams in Alaska. This weekend’s loss to Juneau-Douglas notwithstanding, Kayhi’s team has had one of its best seasons since its meager beginnings. It has a 5-2 record for the season. It’s been exciting for the team and their coaches, the school and the community. Unlike past seasons when the high school football program struggled to get its feet under it, it appears this school year that it has. It should be able to complete its home season in the same manner as other sports this year. That still might happen. Kodiak’s varsity team is still a slim possibility. Perhaps another team will get the notion to come on down for some First City football. If the stars simply will align — the football stars. — Ketchikan Daily News, Sept. 29

Quotable “Right now, we’ve got a campaign plan that has a strong chance for success in Iraq. Syria is a more challenging situation.” — President Barack Obama in an interview aired on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” “I hope the public will keep calm. Don’t be misled by the rumors. Police will strive to maintain social order, including ensuring smooth traffic and ensuring the public safety.” — Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, reassuring pro-democracy protesters that the Chinese army will not intervene.

Correction One of the borough mayor questionnaire responses from Mike Navarre was printed incorrectly in Monday’s Clarion. Navarre’s answer to question 2 regarding items requiring immediate attention should have read: “The gas line and LNG project will require immediate attention because the planning, tax changes, legislation, etc. will be taking place over the course of the next couple years, but starting immediately. I also think healthcare requires immediate attention because it has so much impact on government, individuals, businesses and families. It is something that we have to continue working on.” The Clarion regrets the error.

Letters to the Editor Begich working for Alaskans I’d like to invite you to vote for Mark Begich in the next election. Mark has always listened to and included Alaskans. Although massive amounts of outside money are currently being poured into his opponent’s campaign, Mark doesn’t need all that money to let you know what a superb senator he has been for the past 6 years. His experience and integrity speaks for itself. Mark looks out for the best interests of veterans, he’s stood up for Alaskan’s rights to privacy, he has capitalized on Alaska’s role as America’s energy storehouse, he emphasizes fiscal discipline, and he works across party lines. Nov. 4th is the day we vote to send Mark back to work for us. Thank you! Kate Veh Soldotna

Sign stealing doesn’t reflect well on community I have a piece of property on the Sterling Highway in Soldotna. I am so disappointed in the people of Soldotna who can’t seem to let people display political signs on their own property. I have put up 4 different poC




litical signs supporting my candidates and my choices on different political initiatives and all of them have been removed from the property within 24 hours. Isn’t it amazing that my freedom of speech is trumped by their freedom of speech? It really saddens me that there are people in Soldotna who are so afraid of different opinions that they find it impossible to tolerate a political sign on private property that they don’t agree with. This is vandalism of the most juvenile sort. It’s really a bad reflection on Soldotna. Mindee Morning Kenai

Contributions toward hunger, recovery will go a long way National Recovery Month and Hunger Action Month are celebrated during the month of September. Several events are put together throughout the Kenai Peninsula during this time to help draw awareness of these two important issues. One such event was the film “The Anonymous People” shown Sunday, September 14th at the Orca Theater. More attendees than expected for a Sunday morning watched the movie. The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank partnered with Serenity House to help publicize the event. The Food Bank would like to thank the Serenity House, attendees, and those who donated cash and nonperishable food items.

We received 295 pounds of non-perishable food items. One meal equals 1 1/2 pounds which will provide 196 meals for our hungry neighbors plus $80 dollars from anonymous donors. Thank you to all that helped make this event a success during Hunger Action Month and National Recovery Month. Linda Swarner, executive director Kenai Peninsula Food Bank

Islamic State closes in on Kurdish area

Around the World White House intruder gets much farther into mansion than previously described WASHINGTON — The intruder who climbed a fence made it farther inside the White House than the Secret Service has publicly acknowledged, the Washington Post and New York Times newspapers reported Monday. The disclosures came on the eve of a congressional oversight hearing with the director of the embattled agency assigned to protect the president’s life. Citing unnamed sources — three people familiar with the incident and a congressional aide — the newspapers said Omar J. Gonzalez ran past the guard at the front door and into the East Room, which is about halfway across the first floor of the building. Gonzalez was eventually “tackled” by a counter-assault agent, according to the Post, which was first to report the news. In the hours after the fence-jumper incident, Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press that the suspect had been apprehended just inside the North Portico doors of the White House. The Secret Service also said that night that the suspect had been unarmed — an assertion that was revealed to be false the next day when officials acknowledged Gonzalez had a knife with him when he was apprehended. Getting so far would have required Gonzalez to dash through the main entrance hall, turn a corner, then run through the center hallway half-way across the first floor of the building, which spans 168 feet in total, according to the White House Historical Association.

For some young women, experiencing a recession can mean forgoing children for life NEW YORK — When the economy tanks, women have fewer babies. But what happens in the following years, when conditions improve? A massive new study suggests that for some U.S. women, living through a recession can mean they will never have children. In fact, the authors project that among women who were in their early 20s in 2008 — early in the so-called “Great Recession” — about 151,000 will forgo having any children as a result, at least by age 40. Overall, the lingering impact of that recession may ultimately mean some 427,000 fewer children being born over the course of a couple decades, the authors say. On a societal level these effects are small. The projected number of childless women is a tiny fraction of the 9 million women in that age group, 20-24. The drop-off in births isn’t much for a nation that produces around 4 million babies a year.

Hong Kong police defend use of tear gas, but soften tactics against pro-democracy protests






HONG KONG — Hong Kong’s embattled police defended their use of tear gas but softened their tactics Monday after forceful attempts to quell pro-democracy protests drew tens of thousands more people into the streets in an unprecedented show of civil disobedience. “The students are protecting the right to vote, for Hong Kong’s future. We are not scared, we are not frightened, we just fight for it,” said Carol Chan, a 55-year-old civil service worker who said she took two days off to join the protests after becoming angered over police use of tear gas Sunday. Instead of candlelight, a few hundred people staged a brief “mobile light” vigil Monday night, waving their glowing cell phones as the protests stretched into their fourth day. Crowds chanted calls for the city’s unpopular leader, Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, to resign, and sang anthems calling for freedom. “The students are protecting the right to vote, for Hong Kong’s future. We are not scared, we are not frightened, we just fight for it,” said Carol Chan, a 55-year-old civil service worker who took two days off to join the protests after becoming angered over police use of tear gas Sunday. Students and activists have been camped out since late Friday, demanding that Beijing grant genuine democratic reforms to the former British colony.

Schools develop ‘newcomer’ programs, English help for teens crossing US border FRANKFORD, Del. — American schools are scrambling to provide services to the large number of children and teenagers who crossed the border alone in recent months. Unaccompanied minors who made up the summer spike at the border have moved to communities of all sizes, in nearly every state, Federal data indicates, to live with a relative and await immigration decisions. The Supreme Court has ruled that schools have an obligation to educate all students regardless of their immigration status, so schools have become a safe haven for many of the tens of thousands of these young people mostly from central America living in limbo. Delaware’s rural Sussex County has long attracted immigrants, partly because of work in chicken factories, and soybean and corn fields. The district’s population is more than one-quarter Hispanic, and for years has offered an early learning program for non-English speakers. Still, officials were caught off guard by about 70 new students mostly from Guatemala — part of the wave crossing the border — enrolling last year, mostly at Sussex Central High School. The Indian River School District over the summer break quickly put together special classes for those needing extra English help. On a recent school day, a group of these mostly Spanishspeaking teenage boys with styled spiky hair and high-top sneakers enthusiastically pecked away on hand-held tablets at the G.W. Carver Education Center, pausing to alert the teacher when stumped.


ANTAKYA, Turkey — Militants of the Islamic State group were closing in Monday on a Kurdish area of Syria on the border with Turkey — an advance unhindered so far by U.S.-led coalition airstrikes, including one that struck a grain silo, killing two civilians, according to activists. Islamic State fighters pounded the city of Kobani with mortars and artillery shells, advancing within three miles (five kilometers) of the Kurdish frontier city, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Nawaf Khalil, a Kurdish official. The Islamic extremists intensified their shelling of the border region following U.S.led strikes Saturday. The aerial assault appeared to have done little to thwart the militants, Kurdish officials and activists said, adding that of anything, the extremists seemed more determined to seize the area, which would deepen their control over territory stretching from the Turkish border, across Syria and to the western edge of Baghdad. “Instead of pushing them back, now every time they hear the planes, they shell more,” Ahmad Sheikho, an activist operating along the Syria-Turkey border, said of the Islamic State fighters. He estimated he heard a rocket explosion every 15 minutes or so. Three mortar shells landed in a field in nearby Turkey, the Turkish military said in a statement. After the strike, Turkey’s

military moved tanks away from the army post in the area, positioning them on a hill overlooking the border. The push by Islamic State fighters caused thousands more Kurds to flee the Kobani area on Monday, adding to some 150,000 refugees who have fled to Turkey since mid-September, one of the largest influxes of Syrian refugees since the war began 3½ years ago. The Kurds were particularly fearful that the militants would repeat the mass killings of men and seizures of women that occurred in Iraq in August, after Islamic State fighters seized villages dominated by Iraqis of the Yazidi minority. Men were leaving their families in Turkey and then heading back to Kobani to fight, Sheikho said. Washington and its Arab allies opened the air assault against the extremist group on Sept. 23, striking military facilities, training camps, heavy

weapons and oil installations. The campaign expands upon the airstrikes the United States has been conducting against the militants in Iraq since early August. The airstrikes are meant to ultimately destroy the group, which has declared a self-styled caliphate, or Islamic state, ruled by its harsh interpretation of Islamic law in areas under its control. Its brutal tactics, which include mass killings and beheadings, have galvanized the international community to take on the militants. On Monday, the U.S.-led coalition carried out eight airstrikes targeting towns and villages in northern and eastern Syria controlled by the militants. One strike hit a grain silo in the northern town of Manbij, setting it ablaze and killing two civilians working there, according to the Observatory’s director, Rami Abdurrahman. “There was no ISIS inside,”

Abdurrahman said, using an alternative name for the Islamic State group. The airstrikes, he said, “destroyed the food that was stored there.” The U.S. Central Command said the silo was used by the militants “as a logistics hub and vehicle staging facility.” Pentagon spokesman Col. Steve Warren said the U.S was investigating reports that civilians were killed in the strike, but had found nothing so far to corroborate the allegation. He acknowledged, however, that because of limitations of Pentagon intelligence in Syria, the U.S. could not be certain that every casualty of the coalition airstrikes was a combatant. Another strike overnight hit the entrance of Syria’s largest gas plant in the eastern Deir el-Zour province, but did not damage the facility itself, the Observatory said. U.S. Central Command said the strikes in Deir al-Zour hit two military vehicles. More raids Monday morning struck the town of Tel Abyad on the Syria-Turkey border, according to a resident on the Turkish side of the frontier. Mehmet Ozer, who witnessed the airstrikes from the Turkish side of the border, told the Associated Press the raids hit an abandoned military base and an empty school, sending smoke and dust into the air. He said militants evacuated the base about three months ago. “They (the coalition) must not have fresh intelligence,” Ozer said. U.S. Central Command said the strikes targeted a compound and an airfield used by the Islamic State group.

Obama hosting India’s Modi for White House visit By JOSH LEDERMAN, and DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Once shunned by the United States, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is riding a wave of enthusiasm and popular support Monday to the White House, where he is kicking off a two-day visit with President Barack Obama. The two leaders are working to put a brave face on the relationship despite widespread concerns that U.S.Indian ties have frayed in recent years. Modi’s visit starts with a private dinner with Obama on Monday evening, the day after thousands of Indian-Americans flocked to New York’s Madison Square Garden for a rare chance to see the new leaders of the world’s largest democracy. The dazzling Bollywoodstyle dancers and dozens of U.S. lawmakers taking part in the event highlighted the rock star welcome that Modi is enjoying on his first official visit to the U.S. since being elected in May. It wasn’t always so. When Modi requested a visa to visit the United States nearly a decade ago, Washington said no. That rejection came three years after religious riots killed more

than 1,000 Muslims in the state of Gujarat, where Modi was the top elected official. Another potential wrinkle in Modi’s visit: A human rights group is offering $10,000 to anyone who can serve Modi with a summons issued by a federal court in New York to respond to a lawsuit the group filed accusing him of serious abuses. The lawsuit is on behalf of two unnamed survivors of the violence. Modi has denied involvement in the violence and India’s Supreme Court has said there was no case to bring against him. As a head of state, Modi has immunity from lawsuits in U.S. courts. And White House officials said they doubted the issue would cloud the visit. “Whether it’s security and counterterrorism or strengthening the economy or a host of other regional issues, there is a broad framework where India and the U.S. work closely together to advance our shared interests,” said White House spokesman Josh Earnest. The two leaders will first break the ice over dinner Monday as they seek to reinvigorate soured relations between their countries. Obama’s courtship of Modi continues Tuesday with an Oval Office meeting, marking a rare second day of

New Afghan president sworn in, paving way for US security pact KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghanistan swore in Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai as its second elected president on Monday, embarking on a new era with a national unity government poised to confront a resilient Taliban insurgency by signing an agreement with the United States that would guarantee a continuing American military presence. As Hamid Karzai left the political stage, the new president was locked into an uneasy partnership with his defeated rival, Abdullah Abdullah, who became the country’s first chief executive. With a hug for the cameras, both sides appeared determined to reach across factions and avoid a descent into an abyss similar to what has happened in Iraq, where the government’s failure to mend lingering sectarian divisions following a full U.S. withdrawal helped give rise to the brutal Islamic State group. —The Associated Press C




attention from Obama. During their talks, Obama and Modi will focus on economic growth and cooperation on security, clean energy, climate change and other issues, the White House said. They will also address regional concerns, including Afghanistan, where the U.S. is wrapping up its 13year military involvement, and Syria and Iraq, where the U.S. is ramping up its military engagement as Obama builds an international coalition to target Islamic State militants operating in the both countries. Obama visited India in 2010 and held up the U.S.-India relationship as the “defining partnership” of the 21st century. But the relationship has been lukewarm at best. While military cooperation and U.S. defense sales have grown, the economic relationship has been rockier, with Washington frustrated by India’s failure to open its economy to more foreign investment and address complaints over intellectual property violations. A landmark civil nuclear agreement exists between the two countries, but Indian liability legislation has kept U.S. companies from capitalizing on the deal. Further fraying relations was the arrest and strip search last year in New York

of an Indian diplomat on visa fraud charges. A major aspect of this week’s visit is the chance for Obama and Modi to begin building rapport, administration officials said. Obama was among the first Western leaders to telephone Modi with congratulations after his Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party swept into power after May’s landslide vote. The visit also is a victory lap of sorts for Modi, a former tea seller. “He’s gone in just a matter of a few months from persona non grata to person of honor to be received warmly in the Oval Office,” said Milan Vaishnav, who studies South Asia at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington think tank. Earlier Tuesday, Modi also attended a State Department lunch with Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry. Biden was also to join the president and Modi for dinner in the evening in the Blue Room. But there is one small issue: Modi is fasting to honor the Hindu goddess Durga and is consuming only water or lemon-flavored water. The White House says his dietary needs will be accommodated.

wouldn’t support his ordinance for free boat launch for city residents because someone could sue the city. Boyle served two years in the U.S. Army around the end of the Vietnam War, but he didn’t fight overseas. He said he has the utmost respect for veterans and believed everyone can benefit from service whether it be military or Peace Corps. With population growth expected to take place on the Kenai Peninsula due to increased oil and gas activity, Boyle said the planning that takes place in the present would affect the future. Instead of placing developments in random spots, he said he would like to see a plan that centers on a small business downtown core and a convention center. When the city council and planning and zoning commission held work sessions on the comprehensive plan, Boyle said the phrase, “If you don’t like something, we can always go back and fix it,” was repeated throughout the process. He disagrees with that kind of thinking. “That’s wrong because a comprehensive plan is a look into the future to see where we want to be and then go in that direction,” he said. “Then to say I don’t like that and we can change it, then you don’t have a plan worth the piece of paper it’s printed on. I don’t believe in coming back and fixing things as you go.” Boyle said if re-elected he would continue to support issues facing the highest growing population in Kenai — seniors. He said he has consistently voted against raising rent rates at Vintage Point and supports covered parking at the senior living facility. Boyle said he has enjoyed his time on the council and would continue to represent all citizens equally. “A good council member is one that is willing to listen and be willing to change your mind,” he said. “Vision is good but it has to be shared or it’s no good.”

“Kenai has always been drive from here to there but I think a trail to connect parks can be implemented in phases,” he said. With the increased activity in the oil and gas industry in the Cook Inlet, the potential for a natural gas pipeline in Kenai’s backyard is an exciting prospect, he said. In his time on the planning and zoning commission he has helped the city zone and prepare lots for industrial development on Marathon Road and revised lease lots at Kenai Municipal Airport to attract new business. “A lot of what government does is to encourage things to happen and work with the city to spur development,” Knackstedt said. “The problem is getting people to come in and make those investments… Sometimes we need to invite them.” He said he already sees satellite oil service businesses moving into the fringes of town, which he sees as an appropriate area for development. If the city can continue to plan ahead with its infrastructure, it will encourage private development to move in, which will in turn, allow the city to maintain or lower its mill rate. Knackstedt said he is fiscally conservative and believes the city should continue to keep government small. He said he

didn’t have a problem with the city raising the mill rate from 3.85 to 4.35 because it was reasonable and necessary with the increased costs in health care. “Nobody wants to pay more for things but we have to be able to fund things,” he said. “The city is in great fiscal condition and the airport is self-sustaining and doesn’t cost the city.” One area in which he believes the city council could do a better job is using the city manager and city attorney more when crafting legislation. The time spent tweaking ordinances during council meetings could be better spent if the administration was used to its fullest extent, he said. The various committees that work in an advisory capacity to the city council should also be allowed time to weigh in on certain bills that would apply to their area, he said. When the council passed the free boat launch ordinance on Sept. 3, the harbor commission wasn’t consulted prior to the vote. Kenai City Manager Rick Koch produced a memo prior to the meeting that free boat launching at the city dock outside of dipnet season could cost the city $6,000. Knackstedt said he found it frustrating that the commission wasn’t consulted and felt they were disenfranchised. He

didn’t see the need for the bill to be rushed. “I want to be the guy that if something I was putting through I would go to the commission and try to be the leader and gain their support,” he said. “Someone has to carry the flag. Five brains are better than one. I don’t care how smart someone thinks they may be. Sometimes the most unlikely things are the best solutions.” Knackstedt was involved in creating the comprehensive plan that was voted down by voters after the council passed last October. He said while some people have expressed an interest in seeing Old Town return to be the city core, he said that is not realistic. He said until the bluff gets stabilized, not a lot of development at Millennium Square could take place. Over the next 30 years he sees Old Town transforming into a historical district that is still open to some development. He said the revitalization has already taken place with the beautiful Dena’ina Wellness Center. “Over time that area could be revitalized and attract visitors as a destination everyone will want to visit when coming to Kenai,” he said.

Communication skills are taught so students know how to work with the rest of a care team such as doctors, nurses and fire fighters, and how to be empathetic to their patients, Perry said. Students end their degree with a 480-hour ride along internship, Perry said. Many favorite sites are with partner programs in Georgia, Texas, Oregon or New York, he said. “It is a three-prong process,” Kendrick said. “It is pretty radical.”

ily. The reason the program is so successful is the instructors, administration and the paramedics coming out of this department are quality, Perry said. They know they are in entering a career in public service. KPC opens the lab to other emergency service programs such as the Nikiski and Kenai fire departments, and Central Emergency Services, Perry said. The EMS program maintains strong local partnerships, and is able to take his students to hospitals where they are able to gain real-life experience in the field. “We have so much and it is such a blessing to have it,” Perry said. “The community needs to see that this program is really special.”

Stewart says he never considered retiring JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — Tony Stewart said Monday he never considered retiring from racing following the death of Kevin Ward Jr. The three-time NASCAR champion talked with reporters Monday at his first news conference since a grand jury decided last week not to charge him in Ward’s death. The 20-year-old driver was struck and killed by Stewart’s car during a sprint car race in upstate New York on Aug. 9. “This is what I’ve done all my life. This is what I’ve done for 36 years, and I wouldn’t change anything about it,” he said. “I love what I do. I love driving race cars, but I think it might change right now as far as how much of it and what I do, but there was never a thought in my head about stopping.

That would take the life out of me.” Stewart took 29 questions over 36 minutes at Stewart-Haas Racing, but did not discuss what he remembers about the incident that killed Ward. He has been advised by legal counsel not to discuss it because he still could face a civil lawsuit from Ward’s family. He admitted he’s not been properly engaged with the four-car race team he co-owns. He missed three races following Ward’s death as he secluded himself at his Indiana home, but has been back since the Aug. 31 race at Atlanta. The 43-year-old Stewart didn’t earn a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, but teammates Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch both made the 16-driver field. Busch was eliminated Sunday at Dover. Stewart, who barely watched the three races he missed, said he has not

been the leader he’d like to be for his team. “I’ve let my team down from that standpoint. I’ve been a little bit of a cheerleader, but that’s about all I’ve been able to contribute here the last seven weeks,” he said. “It’s been hard for me to function day-to-day. There hasn’t been anything normal about my life the last seven weeks, so it’s been very hard to try to do anything to be productive to help those guys.” Stewart has also been absent from the sprint car teams he owns via Tony Stewart Racing, and from the three race tracks he owns. He has watched his drivers compete online and watched several nights of racing at Eldora Speedway on his computer, but has not been a part of any of his businesses. He was appreciative of the support he’s received from sponsors,

particularly Mobil 1, Bass Pro Shops and Rush Truck Centers, but acknowledged it’s been difficult on the companies. Stewart also missed the final 15 races of the 2013 season with a broken leg suffered in a sprint car crash last August. “It’s obviously a tough circumstance for anybody to be a part of it, for a corporation to be part of it as well, but they’ve been very supportive through this whole process,” he said. “I can’t speak to what the future will be for them. They’ve been supportive to this point and that’s something I’ve been very grateful for.” Stewart has been receiving professional help to cope with Ward’s death. Asked Monday if he could go back and change anything about the last seven weeks, Stewart said he would not have gone to Canandaigua Motorsports Park for what turned into a

Twins axe manager

Chiefs blow out Patriots DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer





KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It made sense that Andy Reid spoke in baseball metaphors after Kansas City whipped the New England Patriots on Monday night, with the Royals poised to end a long playoff drought just across the parking lot from Arrowhead Stadium. He may have stretched things a bit when it came to Jamaal Charles, though. “It’s a heck of a thing to bring 25 off the bench as a relief pitcher,” Reid said. “That’s a pretty good player. To add him back to the mix is something.” Relief pitcher? How about staff ace. Charles returned from an ankle injury to score three touchdowns, Tom Brady was picked off twice by the opportunistic Chiefs, and Kansas City routed New England 41-14 to hand Bill Belichick one of his worst losses as coach of the Patriots. Charles, who missed last week’s win in Miami with a sprained ankle, ran for 92 yards and a score. The Pro Bowl running back also caught two short touchdown passes from Alex Smith, who had 248 yards passing and three touchdowns in a sharp performance before a raucous crowd. “Coach said he was going to look for me, and see how it feels during the game,” Charles said, “and I guess I started feeling like myself. He didn’t want to take me out.” The Chiefs (2-2) ended a four-game skid at Arrowhead Stadium dating to last season by making things miserable on Brady, who had one of his two picks returned for a touchdown. Brady also was strip-sacked and finished 14 of 23 for 159 yards and a touchdown. “It was just a bad performance by everybody,” Brady said. “We need to make sure we never have this feeling again. We’ve got to figure out what we have to do better.”

tragic sprint car race. “I’d have stayed at Watkins Glen that night,” he said. “You know, I do this stuff and I go run those cars to have a good time and that’s all I wanted to do that night. I wanted to go have fun. It wasn’t a big paying race for sprint car standards. I just wanted to go run my sprint car for a night. I do it to have fun, and it didn’t end up being fun that night.” Stewart told The Associated Press last week that he had lost his desire to race sprint cars and he repeated that Monday. “When I got hurt, it was as soon as I got healed, and as soon as things got settled in with the Cup car I was set that I was wanting to get in one,” he said, “but right now, I wouldn’t even be able to give you a small idea of if and when I’ll ever get back in a car.”

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — He was the third base coach who gave Kirby Puckett a high-five to punctuate his winning homer in Game 6 of the 1991 World Series. He was the trusting candidate who took Minnesota’s managing job when many thought the Twins were about to be contracted in 2002. He was the affable everyman who presided over the team’s turn-of-the-century renaissance and turned the AL doormat into a six-time division champion. Ron Gardenhire was just about everything in the 27 years he spent in the Twins organization. But even he couldn’t survive the worst four-year stretch in franchise history. The Twins fired Gardenhire on Monday, saying it was time for a new voice after his 13-year tenure concluded with 383 losses over the last four seasons. “The reason for this change, I think it’s safe to say, the last couple years we have not won enough games,” Twins general manager Terry Ryan said. “That’s what it comes down to. It’s nothing more, nothing less than that.” The move was made with one season left on Gardenhire’s contract, ending the secondlongest active tenure in the major leagues behind Mike Scioscia of the Angels. Gardenhire played an integral role in the franchise’s turnaround, guiding the Twins to the playoffs six times in nine seasons from 2002-10. But Gardenhire’s teams only got out of the first round once, and his postseason record was 6-21 with the last win coming in 2004. The Twins have long been the model of stability in not only baseball but major professional sports, with only two managers over the last 28 years and two general managers over the last 20 seasons. But all the losing of late became too much to overcome. Over the last four years, the Twins went 78-148 from Aug. 1 on for an abysmal .345 winning percentage. “I’m gone, I’m outta here because we didn’t win,” Gardenhire said. “That’s what it gets down to in baseball. That’s what it should get down to. You have to win on the field and these last four years have been tough for all of us.”

Bridgewater’s sprained ankle is not serious By The Associated Press

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The sprained left ankle for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is not considered serious, and the Minnesota Vikings are optimistic the rookie will play against Green Bay despite only three days to rest for Thursday night’s game. Coach Mike Zimmer said Bridgewater was feeling “a lot better” the day after the injury. He had an MRI test that showed no major damage. “Hopeful,” was Zimmer’s answer Monday when asked if he believes Bridgewater will be able to face the rival Packers. Bridgewater was not present for the portion of practice that was open to reporters. Bridgewater passed for 317 yards and a key 2-point conversion and rushed for 27 yards and a touchdown in his first NFL start, a 41-28 victory over Atlanta that could hardly have been better for the firstround draft pick from Louisville until his left foot rolled underneath him during a short run early in the fourth quarter. Raiders fire Allen ALAMEDA, Calif. — The Oakland Raiders fired coach Dennis Allen on Monday night four games into his third season. The decision was announced soon after the Raiders (0-4) returned from London, where they lost their 10th straight

game dating to last season, 34-14 to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The firing was first reported by Fox Sports. Allen was the first head coach hired by Oakland after the death of longtime owner Al Davis. His 8-28 record is the worst for the franchise since before Davis arrived in 1963. His contract was set to run through next season. An announcement on the interim coach will come Tuesday, with offensive line coach Tony Sparano and offensive coordinator Greg Olson the most likely options. Allen is the third coach fired during the season by Oakland since Davis arrived. Mike Shanahan was fired after four games in 1989 and Lane Kiffin was let go four games into the 2008 season. The Raiders have had 11 straight seasons without a winning record or a playoff berth. Oakland will now have its eighth coach since 2003. Allen and general manager Reggie McKenzie were hired after the team finished 8-8 under coach Hue Jackson in 2011, falling one game short of a playoff bid. Belcher’s brain has signs of CTE KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An autopsy performed one year after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot his 22-year-old girlfriend and killed himself found signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the degenerative brain C




disease found in athletes and others with a history of repetitive brain injuries. Belcher, 25, killed Kasandra Perkins on Dec. 1, 2012, in the couple’s home while his mother was caring for his baby daughter in a nearby room. He then sped from the residence to the Chiefs training facility, where he shot himself in the head in front of then-general manager Scott Pioli and then-coach Romeo Crennel. Belcher’s mother, Cheryl Shepherd, filed a lawsuit in December in Jackson County Circuit Court in Kansas City alleging her son was subjected to “repetitive head trauma,” and that the Chiefs failed to provide adequate medical care before he killed his girlfriend and then committed suicide. That lawsuit and similar actions by more than 30 plaintiffs — many of them former Chiefs players — has been moved to federal court and subsequently set aside while a $765 million settlement between the league and various lawsuits is going through the approval process. Manuel out as Bills QB ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — EJ Manuel is out as the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback, and veteran Kyle Orton is in. Coach Doug Marrone’s patience ran out following two straight losses that exposed 2013 first-round draft pick Manuel’s lack of development. Mar-

rone benched Manuel on Monday, one day after he completed less than half his passes and threw two interceptions in a loss to Houston. Orton will start Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. The Bills signed Orton on Aug. 30 to back up Manuel. Harbaugh says he has control of players SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Jim Harbaugh has no time for Deion Sanders, Trent Dilfer or others who question whether the fourth-year coach has lost his locker room or the faith of his players. In an NFL Network show Sunday, Sanders said of 49ers players: “They want him out. They’re not on the same page.” “Personally I think that’s a bunch of crap,” Harbaugh responded Monday. “People say what they say.” Analyst Dilfer offered Monday on ESPN Radio that, “I do think it’s become almost toxic.” Harbaugh dismissed that, too, by saying, “I haven’t seen Trent or Deion around much.” “When you’re talking about unnamed sources, if somebody’s got a good story to tell, they ought to put their name to it,” Harbaugh said. “If I had a good story to tell, I’d want to put my name to it, so I don’t put a lot of credibility into the unnamed source.”

Astros hire Hinch as GM HOUSTON — A.J. Hinch was hired as the manager of the Astros on Monday, and general manager Jeff Luhnow is confident he’ll be the man to return Houston to success. “I think A.J. is going to be the manager that’s going to be here when we win the World Series,” Luhnow said. Hinch takes over for Bo Porter, who was fired on Sept. 1 in his second year and replaced on an interim baseis by Tom Lawless. The Astros finished 70-92 and fourth in the AL West. Houston has been in a long rebuilding process and hasn’t finished above .500 since going 86-75 in 2008. Hinch takes over a team that made a 19-game improvement over last year to end a streak of three straight 100-loss seasons and one that features AL batting champion Jose Altuve. “The goal is to win championships,” Hinch said. “It’s easy to say but a lot of work. We need to build on the success that this organization has seen.”

Hoke addresses handling of QB ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Monday he has never kept a player with a suspected concussion in a game, trying to address questions over his handling of quarterback Shane Morris last weekend as the Wolverines continue to struggle. Hoke also said there would be a statement from the team’s medical department, but by late Monday, the school still had not sent anything. With Michigan down 30-7 to Minnesota early in the fourth quarter, Morris took a crunching hit from Theiren Cockran, who was called for roughing the passer. Morris briefly looked as if he was having trouble standing, but the sophomore remained in for the next play and threw an incompletion before coming out of the game. Devin Gardner replaced him, but later on that drive, his helmet came off at the end of a play. While Gardner sat out for a play as required, Morris went back in and handed the ball off to a running back. Asked Monday if Morris has been diagnosed with a concussion, Hoke said: “Everything that I know of, no.” Hoke indicated there was some confusion among the officials over whether Michigan could take a timeout to allow Gardner to stay in. “By that time, I know Shane’s on the field, taking one more snap, handing the ball off, Devin gets his helmet back on,” Hoke said. “That’s how that sequence went. What I can tell you is we would never, ever put a guy on the field when there’s a possibility with head trauma, and we won’t do that.” Hoke is facing plenty of scrutiny thanks to Michigan’s 2-3 start, and the incident involving Morris has become a major issue. Hoke said he hasn’t spoken with athletic director Dave Brandon recently about his handling of Morris or his job performance in general.

Yankees expect A-Rod to play 3rd NEW YORK — The Yankees expect Alex Rodriguez to play third base next season but want the suspended star to prove during spring training he deserves to have his position back after a oneyear absence. Rodriguez hasn’t played an injury-free season since 2007, turns 40 on July 27 and missed all of this year while serving his penalty for violating baseball’s drug agreement and labor contract. He’ll have to show his body is up to the rigors of a major league schedule. “We’ve got to see where he’s physically at, and if he can play the field, how many days he can play the field and how many days he needs to DH,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said at a news conference Monday. “I don’t think really any of us know about him until we actually get him into games in spring training.”

A-12 Peninsula Clarion, Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Aging caregiver must find respite time for herself for her to be as effective a caregiver as she obviously wants to be, she’s going to have to take better care of herself because the track she’s on right now could cost her her own health or even her life, and that’s no exaggeration. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 29-year-old single man who is hard of hearing. I have a steady Abigail Van Buren job and plans for a good future, but I’m having trouble in the dating world. I would love to have a special someone in my life, but I’m shy. I have a hard time talking with the girls who live in my area. I can hear people pretty well unless they mumble or talk quietly, or face away from me when they speak. I have asked people to repeat what they say (I try not to do it often) if I missed something. They get frustrated and so do I, and then they say, “Never mind!” I try so hard to hear people. But it seems the harder I try, the less it seems worth it to find a relationship. Any tips on dealing with impatient and non-understanding people?

— FRUSTRATED IN WISCONSIN DEAR FRUSTRATED: As people age, many of them encounter the problem you are trying to cope with now at your young age. Hearing loss is difficult because it is often subtle and can be extremely isolating for the person who has it. My first tip would be to avoid noisy places for meeting women, if you can. My second would be to be upfront about your hearing loss right off the bat. If a woman finds you attractive, she will find ways to accommodate the problem. And if she doesn’t, then she wasn’t the right candidate for a relationship in the first place.

Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Sagittarius. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2014: This year you will be more verbal than you have been in a while. You will attract people who might be very different from your present circle of friends. You will evolve and be even more accepting of other lifestyles than you have in the past. You will gain professionally and personally. If you are single, you discover that your type has changed. You might want to date for a while before making any commitments. What you are drawn to now might not be what you want later. If you are attached, your sweetie might be taken aback by your transformation. Involve him or her more in your life, and he or she will open up more as a result. SAGITTARIUS takes even more risks than you do! The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You could be dealing with a lot of flak from yesterday, as many people seem to have experienced a lot of intensity. You might want to detach in order to gain a more complete perspective. Try to keep decision-making to a minimum. Tonight: Whatever feels right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You will need to go over some of yesterday’s communication. Your intentions might be excellent, but others’ ability to internalize messages seems to be lacking. Expect to approach the issue in question one more time. Tonight: Ask and you shall receive. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)


HHHH Go along with others as much as you can. Trying to blaze a new path could be close to impossible today. You even might believe that you succeeded only to find out otherwise. Open up to new possibilities, but do not act yet. Tonight: Don’t make any waves. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Emphasize getting the job done, rather than getting distracted. If you feel as if there is no possible way that you can clear out what you need to, say so and revise your schedule. As a result, your clarity, as well as your honesty, will be appreciated. Tonight: Nap, then decide. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHYou appear to have workable ideas, whereas others’ seem to fall flat. If you are looking for a brainstorming situation, try another day. You might decide to go off on your own and do what you want for a change. Try not to be too serious! Tonight: Ride the wave of reason. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Tension seems to surround your personal life. You could have a problem making a decision, but ultimately you will find the right solution. Do not push yourself so hard, as you will only make yourself more frustrated. Tonight: Reach out to a friend at a distance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You might consider having a talk, but make sure the other party is ready to have this same conversation. Otherwise, you will have to postpone this chat for another time. Return calls and catch up on emails. Play it relaxed and easy. Tonight: Hang out with a friend. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

By Leigh Rubin


HHH Choose to take a back seat and not get involved in any turmoil. If you don’t, your attention simply will feed the chaos. Answer emails and do some research, but play it low-key. Observe what is going on behind the scenes. Tonight: Take a hard look at your budget. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You could be, and probably are, on top of your game. Listen to news more openly, and be more forthright. You might not have any regrets about a situation, but others might. Don’t try to change their opinions; instead, just respect them. Tonight: Be spontaneous. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Observe more. You will learn a lot about those around you in a situation that you feel could boil over at any given moment. Your opinion could change with a new perspective. Continue this process until you know what to do. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. You are going to need it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHYour objectives are clear, and you will gain the support you need today. Relax, and move a personal matter to another day. If your schedule was free, what would you do? Go off and make plans accordingly. Tonight: Make sure you are where you want to be. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHHYou could feel out of sorts and strange about some demands that are being made. The problem will be that you might have to say “no.” Though you’ll think your message is heard today, you could discover otherwise soon enough! Tonight: A force to be dealt with.

‘Open,’ says the thief! Dear Heloise: Our house was broken into while we were away because I left my GARAGE-DOOR OPENER in the car parked in our driveway. The intruders entered the house because we commonly leave the door between the house and the garage unlocked. Boy, we learned our lesson! We now do not leave garage-door openers in either car, and we keep that garage door locked. Please warn your readers so this does not happen to them! — Taylor R. in Oklahoma How awful and scary! Most people do leave the opener in the auto and generally don’t have a problem. Remember to lock the vehicle doors, since a lot have the “opener” built in. It’s probably well worth the peace of mind to lock the entry door from the garage. — Heloise Water storage Dear Heloise: In a previous column, you mentioned that water should be stored away from sun or heat sources in a cool, dry place in proper foodgrade water containers. You also stated not to store water in the garage, which is where I store my emergency water. Why did you say to avoid the garage and storing near gasoline and other chemicals? Is there a concern that the fumes would contaminate the water? — Ann W. in California Yes, there is, and you figured it out! If the PLASTIC containers are kept near gas and other chemicals, the chemicals may leach into the water, causing contamination, not to mention funnytasting water, which means don’t drink it! A dark closet in the house where the temperature is constant is the right spot! — Heloise

DEAR ABBY: How can I convince my aging, sick sister-in-law that her feeble husband’s care is too much for her at this point? She can barely care for herself, yet she must help him eat, get out of chairs — everything short of chew his food for him. I have tried telling her she deserves respite care of some kind, to no avail. Have you any ideas how I can convince her she is literally killing herself and deserves some assistance? Their three daughters are no help at all to them. They turn a blind eye from their parents’ situation. — RELATIVE WHO CARES IN OHIO DEAR RELATIVE: I can think of a few things you might do to help. The first would be to talk to the daughters and explain your concerns for their mother’s health — because if she doesn’t get some respite care, SHE could die before their father does. Be sure to point out that if that happens, their father’s care would become THEIR responsibility. When they realize the effect it would have on their own lives, it might motivate them to do something. The second would be to do some research and see what options are available for part-time caregivers or senior day care centers where her husband would be safe and looked after while your sister-inlaw has a few precious hours to herself. The man’s doctor could guide you. Then have a frank talk with her and explain that

Groups replacing fence in Wyoming to aid wildlife CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Work has started to replace 45 miles of fence in west-central Wyoming to make it easier for pronghorn antelope and mule deer to move between summer and winter ranges. The Bureau of Land Management and numerous wildlife groups are helping with the $500,000 project in an area called the Mesa, a swath of land near Pinedale that is home to one of the largest natural gas fields in the nation, the Casper Star-Tribune reported Thursday. The 90-mile-long fence is on BLM land and marks the boundary between land the agency operates and land leased by 13 ranches. Nic Rogers, project coordinator for Wyoming Wildlife — The Foundation, said the existing fences were built a century ago, vary in height and create obstacles for wildlife. He said he saw six dead pronghorn and five dead mule deer along a 45-mile stretch of fence in August. Most caught





a leg or antler in the fence and died of starvation. “The deer herd is already declining and you have does dying in the fence,” he said. “You can extrapolate that out to how many fawns won’t be produced next year.” He said replacing the fence can help prevent such deaths. The fence needs to be no taller than 42 inches to allow the antelope to clear them and need to have a smooth wire 18 inches above the ground to accommodate pronghorns, which like to crawl under them, Rogers said. The Wyoming Wildlife and Natural Resource Trust, Pinedale Anticline Project Office, Mule Deer Foundation, Patagonia and private donors are helping pay for the work. About $100,000 still needs to be raised. The Green River Valley Land Trust replaced 30 miles of fencing in 2012, Rogers said. The 45-mile project is expected to be completed sometime next year.
