In the news Elections Division reprinting pamphlet to include Walker C




ANCHORAGE (AP) — The Division of Elections has reprinted voter information pamphlets to include independent gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker. Division Director Gail Fenumiai said candidates are sent letters informing them of the pamphlet, which includes information provided by the candidates on their families, interests and reasons for running. But she says Walker wasn’t sent the letter. She said it was a “mishap by staff,” noting that Walker declared his intention to run last year and slipped through the cracks. She said it was too late to include Walker in the version of the pamphlet that voters began receiving Monday. She said the division has printed a supplemental pamphlet for the gubernatorial and lieutenant governor candidates that voters should receive this week. Walker has been included in the online version of the pamphlets.

makes the body produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening infections. Despite the continued efforts of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, no cure has been found. According to statistics from the foundation, one in every 30 people in the U.S. carries the defective cystic fibrosis gene. Life expectancy for people with the disease is an average of 37 years. Both Deaton’s parents carried the gene. Rey said Deaton takes a powerful intravenous antibiotic three times a day. “She has 47 percent lung function and can’t run the length of a parking lot,” Rey said of her daughter. “She works with a personal trainer to

A horrific crime brought Miriam Aarons and Mao Tosi together. On Oct. 23, the pair of community organizers will share a message of collaboration as co-keynote speakers at the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention in Anchorage. “I never thought in a million years I would ever be an AFN co-keynote speaker,” said Aarons, 32. The 37-year-old Tosi is of Samoan descent. A former professional football player for the Arizona Cardinals, Tosi grew up in Anchorage and said being asked to headline the state’s premier Native gathering is an honor he is proud of and thankful for. Both prefer to talk more about their message and less about their uniqueness among AFN keynotes — Aarons for her age and Tosi for his background. “I am Alaskan. I maybe came a different route but the acceptance is there; maybe not because of who I am but for the work I’ve done,” Tosi said. He ran a spirited but ultimately unsuccessful campaign for the East Anchorage Assembly seat earlier this year. When Aarons heard news of a May 2013 double murder and sexual assault in Anchorage’s Mountain View neighborhood she immediately wondered what she could do for the family, the community. A mutual acquaintance of the two encouraged her to reach out to

Peninsula shoots for the cure Events raises awareness, funds for patients with cystic fibrosis By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion

Thirty participants armed with shotguns and another 30 spectators gathered at the Snowshoe Gun Club in Kenai with one goal in mind: help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. On Saturday the Snowshoe Gun Club hosted the first Kenai Peninsula Shoot for the Cure fundraiser, a shooting clay sporting event that raises awareness and funds for patients with cystic fibrosis. Shoot for the Cure founder Karen Rey, of Anchorage, knows all too well the struggle families and patients with cystic fibrosis endure. Rey’s daughter Mattie Deaton, 22, was first diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 2. At

Man arrested after Tribal housing grants awarded Nikiski assault By RASHAH McCHESNEY Peninsula Clarion

A man with a history of domestic violence charges and assault convictions has again been arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in her home on Cabin Lake Road in Nikiski. Alaska State Troopers arrested Eli Wilson Darien, 52, after they responded to a welfare check on Sunday and found that a woman had been assaulted on Saturday. In addition to the assault charge, Darien is also accused of stealing $220 from the wom-

an’s purse and a bottle of whiskey before leaving the area, according to a trooper report. Troopers found Darien on Sunday in a home off of Sunflower Street in Nikiski and reportedly found a flask of whiskey, a small amount of marijuana and a baggie of methamphetamine. Darien is currently on probation for prior controlled substance violations. Ultimately, Troopers arrested him and charged him with assault in the fourth degree, a class A misdemeanor that is punishable by up to one year See ARREST, page A-6

Scientists probe mass frog deaths By PATRICK WHITTLE Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine — A Maine biologist documented the die-off of some 200,000 tadpoles in a pond in his backyard, igniting new interest among scientists in ranavirus, a disease that can cause swift mass deaths of amphibians. Bowdoin College professor Nathaniel Wheelwright recently published a paper about the die-off in the academic journal Herpetological Review, concluding the deaths in June of last year likely were due to ranavirus. It represents the largest documented mass natural death event of amphibians recorded in academic literature, he said. “It was traumatic, and it was unexpected, and it was shocking,” Wheelwright said of finding the pond full of thousands of tadpole corpses. “I had two thoughts — one, how sad to lose so many animals overnight, and two, what is the biology behind this strange event.”

have been collected to determine if the disease is increasing in Maine or elsewhere. It’s possible scientists are getting better at identifying it, he said. “It’s certainly well documented,” he said. “We know where it’s occurred. It’s real. And it’s very damaging that it does happen.” Ranavirus has existed in North America for at least 100 years, but it didn’t come to the forefront of scientific research until about 15 years ago, said David Green, a veterinary pathologist with the U.S. Geological Survey based in Madison, Wisconsin. It has also been the subject of study in the mid-Atlantic states, where it has wiped out entire ecosystems of young amphibians. Many more mass die-offs of amphibians from ranavirus likely go unreported, Green said. Some have suggested that warmer temperatures have stressed amphibians to the point where they are more susceptible to ranavirus. Green said

additional stressors probably aren’t necessary, as the disease is virulent enough to kill off amphibians without them. The big question is about the impact of ranavirus on species’ populations declines, he said. “We don’t know how this is perhaps impacting populations biologically,” Green said. Wheelwright said he didn’t see any young frogs this summer at his pond, suggesting the possibility of a “second summer where they got nailed.” Aram Calhoun, a biologist with the University of Maine who was studied ranavirus, said long-term data about ranavirus die-offs are needed to determine if the deaths in Wheelwright’s pond are alarming. But amphibians are already imperiled by long-standing problems such as habitat loss, she added. “What I don’t think is we should be extrapolating what happened in his pool to all pools in New England and say that’s a trend, because we really don’t know that,” she said.

Wheelwright’s work is emerging as scientists around the country are trying to learn more about ranavirus, which poses a threat to already struggling species of frogs, toads and salamanders. Amphibians are the most imperiled class of vertebrates in the world, with about a third of them considered threatened. Scientists have documented the disease in more than 20 states, and some believe it is everywhere in the continental United States. The disease causes amphibians, especially larvae, to swell and hemorrhage. Whether cases of ranavirus are becoming more prevalent or if diagnosis is merely on the rise is a subject of current scientific inquiry, said Phillip de Maynadier, a biologist with the Maine Inland Fisheries & Wildlife Department. De Maynadier said there have been a “flurry” of ranavirus die-offs in Acadia National Park over the last 15 years. However, he added that not enough data

School bets video game scholarship can attract talent By JASON KEYSER Associated Press





CHICAGO — As a teenager, holed up in his bedroom, illuminated by the glow of his laptop, Youngbin Chung became addicted to video games. Tenhours-a-day addicted. His grades tanked. His parents fretted. A few years later, the 20-year-old from the San Francisco area leads a team of headset-wearing players into virtual battle in a darkened room at a small private university in Chicago. He’s studying computer networking there on a nearly $15,000 a year athletic scholarship — for playing League of Legends, the video game that once jeopardized his high school diploma. “I never thought in my life I’m going to get a scholarship playing a game,” said Chung, one of 35 students attending Robert Morris University on the school’s first-in-the-nation video game scholarship. Once regarded as anti-social slackers or nerds in a basement, gamers have become megastars in what are now called esports. In professional leagues, they compete for millions of dollars in prizes and pull in six-figure incomes for vanquishing their enemies in what have become huge spectator events packing tens of thousands into sports stadiums around the world. Games have evolved from the days of Pac-Man and Donkey Kong into something much more complex. They demand hyper mental acuity and involve multiple players communicating with each other in teams, plotting strategy, predicting opponents’ moves and reacting in milliseconds. Robert Morris, a not-forprofit university with about 3,000 students, believes those are not so different from the skills one uses on a football

field or a basketball court and that spending money to recruit these students, too, will enrich campus life and add to its ranks of high-achieving graduates. “It’s coming; it’s coming big time,” Associate Athletic Director Kurt Melcher said of the esports trend and what he’s sure is its looming recognition by a bigger chunk of the collegiate sports world. Hundreds of other colleges and universities have esports clubs, but Robert Morris is the first to recognize it as a varsity sport under its athletic department. The scholarships, which cover up to half off tuition and half off room and board (worth a total of $19,000 in a typical three-quarter academic year) are for a single game, League of Legends, in which teams of five on five use keyboards and mouses to control mythical fighters battling it out in a science fiction-like setting. The first practices started last month in a $100,000 classroom outfitted with an expansive video screen, computers and an array of eye-dazzling gaming paraphernalia. The space is dimly lit and window blinds are drawn to keep glare off monitors. In the darkness, dozens of students wearing microphone headsets flit fingers and thumbs over the controls with blistering intensity and concentration. Death comes in a multitude of forms and is often sudden. Accordingly, the hum of game chatter is punctuated by the occasional whooping cry of victory or anguished sigh of defeat. The Robert Morris Eagles will play teams in two leagues that include the likes of Harvard and MIT with hopes of making it to the League of Legends North American Collegiate Championship, where the members of the first-place team take home $30,000 each in scholarships.

What Others Say

Governor’s denial of request thwarts right to know Problems with harassment, sexual as-

sault, fraud and other issues within the Alaska National Guard are serious business. The scathing report from the National Guard Bureau, the removal of Adjutant Gen. Thomas Katkus and Deputy Commissioner McHugh Pierre and additional promised shakeups in Guard leadership illustrate the gravity of the issues facing one of the state’s prominent institutions. So it’s difficult to understand Gov. Parnell’s reticence in making public documents that would enhance the public’s understanding of what took place to warrant these actions and help ensure such missteps aren’t made in the future. In May, the Alaska Public Radio Network made a Freedom of Information Act request for emails between the governor’s office, Gen. Katkus and Mr. Pierre related to the reports of problems in the Guard. The guidelines for FOIA requests state that agencies have 10 days to respond, with an additional 10 if more time is required to fulfill them. With the APRN request, the governor’s office took 86 days before notifying the network it was rejecting their petition for information entirely. It’s not as though the request slipped through the cracks. During the course of those three months, APRN said it made more than two dozen phone calls to the governor’s office seeking a response, many of which were unreturned. When APRN finally received the rejection on Sept. 26, the governor’s policy director Randy Ruaro said the communications, some of which came from Guard chaplains blowing the whistle on chain-of-command abuses, fell under the privilege between clergy members and their parishioners. Furthermore, Mr. Ruaro cited potential harm if victims’ identities became known. Concern for the disclosure of victims’ identities is well-intentioned, but misguided for two reasons: first, some of the victims of abuses in the Guard have already voluntarily come forward to tell their stories to the media. Second, even if identities of victims were not already known, broadcast and print media in Alaska do not disclose the names of victims of sexual assault or abuse. State officials are well aware of that practice. With regard to Mr. Ruaro’s rationale that communications with clergy are privileged, that argument would hold water if the communications in question were between Guard members and their chaplains. But the request was for emails between the governor’s office, Gen. Katkus and Mr. Pierre. The chaplains were a third party, and the disclosures they made to state officials would already obviate whatever privilege could be asserted over communications made between those officials after the fact. The seriousness of the misconduct within the Guard and the tardiness with which the state has addressed it make it all the more important that in responding to the issues, the state is as forthright and transparent as possible. The people deserve a full picture of where mistakes were made in the chain of command, and the information requested by APRN is necessary to that goal. The governor’s office was wrong to block access to it, and the denial doesn’t inspire confidence in the administration’s willingness to fully address the issues. — Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Oct. 3

Classic Doonesbury, 1978 








Americans can handle the truth

The Ebola virus is not a threat, but ISIS is. That’s what some of our leaders tell us. Should we believe them? Do they have a track record for truth-telling that would lend them credibility? ISIS hasn’t (yet) invaded America, but Ebola has. We are bombing ISIS in Syria, but treating Ebola here as an interloper that can be controlled. There is nothing to worry about. No need to panic. Pay no attention to the disease behind the curtain. Experts are in charge and we must always trust our experts. Do you? I sure don’t. Sometimes it seems the priority of our elected officials and experts is selfprotection rather than the protection of the public, which they are supposed to serve. We only know what they tell us. We presume they have access to accurate information, but we only get their version of the truth. Government officials testify before congressional committees and either deny responsibility for their own incompetence and malfeasance, blame others, hide behind the all-purpose “mistakes were made,” or take the Fifth. A few accept “responsibility,” but only in rare cases does anyone lose their job, unless their transgressions are so glaring they can’t be ignored, like Julia Pierson, former director of the Secret Service. If politicians and bureaucrats protected us the way they protect themselves, there would be no need to fear Ebola, ISIS or anything else. In the case of Ebola, our leaders want us to remain unconcerned. They have it under

Letters to the Editor Inspiring to see youth stand up for their rights The good news is that teachers and students are standing up and speaking out in favor of educational policies that educate students more fully than the limited anti-education policies proposed by three members of the school board in Colorado. (Jack Healy, the New York Times, September 23, 2014) According to the report, hundreds of students from 11 high schools in the Jefferson County School District in Colorado’s second largest district participated in the protest against limiting their educational opportunities. Young people who stand up for a right make me proud and hopeful for our future. Thank you young people for exercising your right to free speech and to playing a role in defining your education and our’s also. We need you to express your selves. You are key to our future. Thank you to the teachers and parents for encouraging and bringing your young people to this point. Your parenting and teaching tell me you are absolutely doing some things right. I applaud you. Seventy five years ago we had some very unhealthy practices. Children were to be quiet, stay in their seat, do their work, do not complain because children were meant to be seen not heard. The result of these practices seems to be our very unhealthy and largely uninvolved silent majority and at least one grouchy senior citizen. Our latest primary election resulted in 31 percent voter participation. Hugh R. Hays Soldotna

Tsalteshi Trails celebrates an exciting year What a year for the Tsalteshi Trails Association! Despite an uncharacteristically mild winter and a forest fire-filled spring, C




control, they say. And yet infected people keep popping up. Not to worry, they say. We can trust West African nations to examine those leaving their countries, even though it appears we can’t. Thomas Eric Cal Thomas Duncan managed to get out of Liberia and travel to the U.S. with relative ease. The dumbest analysis so far came recently on CNN. Appearing on “Anderson Cooper 360,” Ebola “expert” (there’s that word again) David Quammen argued against quarantines and banning flights from West Africa where thousands have died from Ebola and thousands more are infected. Here’s Quammen: “You can’t isolate neighborhoods, you can’t isolate nations. It doesn’t work ... how dare we turn our backs on Liberia given the fact that this is a country that was founded in the 1820s, 1830s because of American slavery. We have a responsibility to stay connected to them and help them see this through.” We are “staying connected.” The Obama administration may send 4,000 troops to Liberia and American health workers are on the ground there. Public health should not be held hostage to any other consideration. The practice of quarantine — separating the sick from the healthy — goes back as far as the year 549

we’ve had the largest community involvement in Tsalteshi history this year. With a variety of communitywide ski, run and bike races, our trails have seen over 9,000 kilometers of community racing. This doesn’t even include school or private events and uses, but despite those exclusions, it is enough to ski, bike and run from Tsalteshi Trails all the way to Guatemala! This year has also seen a great deal of firsts. Not only have we been able to enjoy 25 kilometers of trail, thanks in no small part to the development, maintenance and grooming of Bill Holt, we have included a dedicated single-track trail for our cycling enthusiasts. This purely volunteer effort was spearheaded by Nic and Natalie Larson, with an army of volunteers and muchappreciated help from Beemun’s Bike and Ski Loft. Adding purpose-built trails meant lease agreement changes with the Kenai Peninsula Borough, for which Land Management Officer Marcus Mueller provided quick and comprehensive information. We had over 50 people participate in our first shoes-optional run, the Caveman 5k, with help from The Fitness Place. We had our first film festival, with help from Kenai River Brewing Co. and Alaska Downhill Brigade. We raised money for the American Cancer Society by hosting the Relay for Life 5k. We added color to the mix by partnering with United Way with the Color Us United 5k, and we became involved with the central peninsula mainstay Rotary Unity Run with the Soldotna and Kenai River Rotary clubs. A new water tower project is being skillfully handled by the city of Soldotna, and planners have been exceedingly accommodating to our hope to keep our Fox trail skiable and awesome. We partnered with Cook Inletkeeper for our first ever 10mile beach race, the Mouth to Mouth Wild Ride and Run, which saw tremendous turnout for a great cause. The third year of the increasingly popular Salmon Run Series had its largest participation ever, with every race seeing over 100 people finish, thanks to the efforts of the amazing Allie

A.D. when, in the midst of an outbreak of bubonic plague, the Byzantine emperor Justinian enacted a law meant to isolate sick people from regions infested with plague. I’m sure leaders back then told the public not to worry, that they had everything under control. Did people trust their leaders then any more than we trust our leaders today? I doubt it. Failure to tell the truth about a whole range of things has contributed to public distrust, even cynicism, about government. Take for instance the latest unemployment figures spun by the Obama administration. We are told a 5.9 percent unemployment rate and the addition of 248,000 nonfarm payroll jobs last month proves the economic recovery continues. Left out of most news coverage is a labor force participation rate of 62.7 percent, the lowest it has been since the 1970s and down from 66.1 percent in January 2004, according to Labor Department figures. Former ABC News anchor Ted Koppel once said: “Our society finds truth too strong a medicine to digest undiluted. In its purest form, truth is not a polite tap on the shoulder. It is a howling reproach.” Our leaders underestimate the ability and desire of the public to respond to the truth with sober minds. We can handle the truth, if our government will only tell it to us. Readers may email Cal Thomas at

Ostrander and the Kenai Watershed Forum. One race was the largest communitywide running event in Tsalteshi history — 165 finishers! Our nine-race Cycle Series also saw our largest-ever participation. These races culminated in PsychoCross 2014, made possible by generous donations from Beemun’s Bike and Ski Loft, with door prizes from the T200 Sled Dog Race and Advanced Physical Therapy. The Fountain of Youth Pursuit race, this year a 5k, proved to be a very popular option and a fun way to challenge racers against each other, regardless of age or gender. And the Tri-the-Kenai Triathlon at Tsalteshi, now in its fifth year, also saw largest-ever participation, despite being delayed by smoke from the spring wildfire. Many of these events couldn’t have been possible without the aforementioned individuals and entities. And none of this would be possible without participation from our community. Thank you for becoming Tsalteshi members, participating in events, volunteering, donating and assisting in keeping the Tsalteshi Trails Association thriving. And the fun doesn’t stop here! Spook Night is coming up Oct. 26, hopefully with snow and a full season of skiing close behind. We’ll see you on the trails! Tsalteshi Trails Association Board of Directors

Nation & World Around the World Islamic State group presses assault on Syrian town near Turkish border MURSITPINAR, Turkey — Islamic State fighters backed by tanks and artillery pushed into an embattled Syrian town on the border with Turkey on Monday, touching off heavy street battles with the town’s Kurdish defenders. Hours after the militants raised two of their Islamic State group’s black flags on the outskirts of Kobani, the militants punctured the Kurdish front lines and advanced into the town itself, the Local Coordination Committees activist collective and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. “They’re fighting inside the city. Hundreds of civilians have left,” said Observatory director Rami Abdurrahman. “The Islamic State controls three neighborhoods on the eastern side of Kobani. They are trying to enter the town from the southwest as well.” The center of the town was still in Kurdish hands, Abdurrahman said. Kurdish officials could not be immediately reached for comment. Since it began its offensive in mid-September, the Islamic State group has barrelled through one Kurdish village after another as it closed in on its main target — the town of Kobani, also known as Ayn Arab. The assault has forced some 160,000 Syrians to flee and put a strain on Kurdish forces, who have struggled to hold off the extremists even with the aid of limited U.S.-led airstrikes.

NBC cameraman suffering from Ebola arrives at specialized Nebraska facility OMAHA, Neb. — An American video journalist who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia stepped off a jet Monday under his own power on his way to a Nebraska hospital where he will be treated for the disease in a specialized containment unit. At the bottom of the jet’s steps, Ashoka Mukpo was loaded onto a stretcher for the ambulance ride to the Nebraska Medical Center. Mukpo, 33, was working as a freelance cameraman for NBC News when he became ill last week. He is the fifth American with Ebola to return to the U.S. for treatment during the latest outbreak, which the World Health Organization estimates has killed more than 3,400 people. Mukpo’s parents said they tried to talk him out of going to Liberia last month, but he told them he wanted to report on the severity of the epidemic. “I told him I thought he was crazy,” said his father, Dr. Mitchell Levy.

Chicago teen arrested, accused of trying to travel to Syria to join Islamic State group C




CHICAGO — A 19-year-old American left a letter expressing disgust with Western society for his parents before trying to board a plane in Chicago, the first step in his plan to sneak into Syria to join the Islamic State group, according to a federal criminal complaint released Monday. Mohammed Hamzah Khan, a U.S. citizen who lived with his parents in the Chicago suburb of Bolingbrook, was arrested Saturday while trying to board a plane to Turkey, which borders Syria, at O’Hare International Airport. He is charged with attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist group. Before heading to the airport, Khan allegedly left a threepage, handwritten letter in his bedroom for his parents, explaining why he chose to join the Islamic State. The letter, according to the complaint, read: “We are all witness that the western societies are getting more immoral day by day.” Investigators say Khan also wrote that he was upset that his U.S. taxes were going to kill his “Muslim brothers and sisters,” an apparent reference to a bombing campaign against Islamic State militants by the U.S and other nations. The letter was signed, “Your loving son.” Khan appeared in a federal court Monday in orange jail clothes, calmly telling a federal magistrate that he understood the allegations. Later, as marshals led him away in handcuffs, the slight, bearded young man turned to smile at his parents at the back of the room.

GM uses Facebook, calls to reach 1.2M car owners who haven’t gotten deadly switch fixed DETROIT — Eight months after General Motors began recalling more than 2 million cars because of a deadly ignition-switch defect, less than half the owners have gotten their vehicles fixed. At first, the problem was a shortage of parts. But now the problem is people. Despite the heavy publicity surrounding the scandal, many drivers evidently haven’t heard of the recall or haven’t grasped how serious the defect is because it hasn’t given them any trouble. As a result, GM has been forced to go beyond the usual ominous-sounding recall letters. It has sent out Facebook messages and made phone calls to owners of the cars, mainly Chevrolet Cobalts and Saturn Ions. CEO Mary Barra has even sent a personal letter urging people to get the switches replaced.

Military surplus program gives weapons to a coroner and livestock theft investigator BATON ROUGE, La. — Doug Wortham used a Defense Department giveaway program for law enforcement to stock his office with an assault rifle, a handgun and a Humvee — even though the people in his custody are in no condition to put up a fight. They’re dead. Wortham is the Sharp County, Arkansas, coroner. He says the Humvee helps him navigate the rugged terrain of the Ozarks foothills, but he struggled to explain why he needs the surplus military weapons he acquired more than two years ago. “I just wanted to protect myself,” he said. His office isn’t the only government agency with limited policing powers and a questionable need for high-powered weaponry to take advantage of the program. While most of the surplus weapons go to municipal police departments and county sheriffs, an Associated Press review shows that a diverse array of other state and local agencies also have been scooping up guns and other tactical equipment no longer needed by the military. — The Associated Press


Mexico mass grave shines light State officials worked to determine if missing students are among 28 bodies By JOSE ANTONIO RIVERA Associated Press

IGUALA, Mexico — Revelations of mayhem, murder and mass graves shed light Monday on another deeply troubled region of Mexico, the southern state of Guerrero, where officials say city police in league with drug traffickers are suspected of carrying out an attack on students that left at least six dead and 43 missing. As state officials worked to determine whether some of the missing students are among 28 bodies found in a clandestine grave, President Enrique Pena Nieto called the deaths “outrageous, painful and unacceptable.” Pena Nieto said he dispatched federal security forces to “find out what happened and apply the full extent of the law to those responsible.” His statement came amid rising international concern over two possible cases of mass killings involving Mexican authorities. In addition to the Iguala incident, in which 22 city police have been detained, an army unit is now under investigation and three soldiers are charged with murder in a June 30 confrontation that killed 22 suspected gang members in neighboring Mexico state. The army originally reported that the 22 died in a gun battle after soldiers on patrol came under fire. But a witness told The Associated Press that 21 of them were killed after they surrendered. Guerrero State Prosecutor Inaky Blanco said the bodies in the mass grave are badly damaged and genetic testing could

Relatives of missing students talk behind a makeshift altar as they wait for news inside the Isidro Burgos rural teachers college in Ayotzinapa, Mexico, Sunday. Mexican forensic experts recovered 28 charred bodies from a clandestine grave on the outskirts of this city where police engaged in a deadly clash with student protesters a week ago but said the corpses were too badly damaged for immediate identification. He could not say whether any of the dead could be some of the 43 college students reported missing after the confrontation with police.

take two weeks to two months to identify them. Blanco said a person detained in the case had told investigators that 17 students were taken to the site outside Iguala, about 120 miles (200 kilometers) south of Mexico City, and killed there. He said so far there was no known motive for the attack on the students. Investigators said video showed police taking away an undetermined number of students, who had gone from a rural teachers college in Ayotzinapa to the city to solicit donations. But speculation abounded among parents and local residents as a banner appeared, signed in the name of the local drug gang Guerreros Unidos. It demanded that the 22 officers

detained be released within 24 hours, and warned of consequences otherwise. “The war has started,” the banner added. Former anti-drug prosecutor Samuel Gonzalez said it was possible that traffickers suspected the youths had been sent by a rival drug gang. Manuel Martinez, spokesman for the students’ families, denied they had any links to organized crime. But the Ayotzinapa school has long been an ally of community police in the nearby town of Tixtla, and Martinez said that, along with the teachers union and the students, it had formed a broad front to expel cartel extortionists from the area last year. Authorities have presented

charges against 29 people in the case. Three suspects are fugitives, including Iguala’s police chief. Parts of Guerrero are controlled by vigilante-style community police forces, some believed to have ties to leftist guerrilla movements. Drug traffickers sometimes form their own pseudo-vigilante groups, and the state is torn by ancestral land conflicts, illegal logging and mining interests that create a powder keg for potential conflict. The mass grave comprised six unmarked pits on a hillside about a mile (2 kilometers) from the nearest road. The bodies had been put on top of branches and tree trunks, which were doused with a flammable substance and set on fire. The grave covering and the burning appeared fresh, according to an official close to the case who was not authorized to speak to the press. But there were layers of bodies separated by tarps, the official added, indicating that some might have been there for some time. The mother of 17-year-old Luis Angel Abarca Carrillo said he had enrolled in the Ayotzinapa school to get ahead in life and not be a poor farmer like his brothers. “But now look what they did to him,” said Margarita Carrillo, 60. “He hasn’t reappeared.” Mexico’s National Human Rights Commission has opened its own probe of possible “serious human rights abuses” by Iguala police, and Amnesty International called on federal authorities Monday to carry out “full and thorough investigations.”

Nurse in Madrid diagnosed with Ebola By JORGE SAINZ Associated Press

MADRID — In the first known transmission of the current outbreak of Ebola outside West Africa, a Spanish nurse who treated a missionary for the disease at a Madrid hospital has tested positive for the virus, Spain’s health minister said Monday. The female nurse was part of the medical team that treated a 69-year-old Spanish priest who died in a hospital last month after being flown back from Sierra Leone, where he was posted, Health Minister Ana Mato said. The nurse is believed to have contracted the virus from that priest. The World Health Organization confirmed there has not been a previous transmission outside West Africa in the cur-

rent outbreak. WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib told The Associated Press that so far there have only been confirmed cases in West Africa and the United States, and no known transmission outside West Africa. The organization is awaiting official notification of the case from Spanish authorities. The woman went to the Alcorcon hospital in the Madrid suburbs with a fever on Sunday and was placed in isolation. Mato said the infection was confirmed by two tests. The woman’s only symptom was a fever and she was on vacation when she fell sick, Antonio Alemany, Madrid director of primary health care, told a news conference. Alemany said authorities are drawing up a list of people the nurse had contact with, though he did not say how many people that might be, or

where she went on holiday. She is married but does not have children. Nobody apart from the woman is in quarantine, but her husband and the paramedics who admitted her on Sunday are being monitored. Officials did not say how or where. The nurse helped treat two Spanish missionaries who died after being flown back to Madrid with the deadly virus, officials said. She cared for Manuel Garcia Viejo, who died Sept. 25. In August, she also helped treat 75-year-old Spanish priest Miguel Pajares, who was flown back to Spain from Liberia, but died after being treated with the experimental Ebola medicine ZMapp. The woman will be transferred for treatment to Madrid’s Carlos III hospital.

The virus that causes Ebola spreads only through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person who is showing symptoms. Spanish authorities said they were investigating how the nurse became infected at a hospital with modern health care facilities and special equipment for handling cases of deadly viruses. More than 370 health workers in West Africa have become infected in this outbreak, and more than half of those have died. Doctors and nurses there have worked under difficult conditions, treating patients in overflowing wards, sometimes without proper protection. But even under ideal conditions, experts warn that caring for Ebola patients always involves a risk. WHO estimates the latest Ebola outbreak has killed more than 3,400 people.

Court clears the way for gay marriage expansion By MARK SHERMAN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court unexpectedly cleared the way Monday for a dramatic expansion of gay marriage in the United States and may have signaled that it’s only a matter of time before samesex couples can marry in all 50 states. Rejecting appeals from five states seeking to preserve their bans, the Supreme Court effectively made such marriages legal in 30 states, up from 19 and the District of Columbia, taking in every region of the country. Challenges are pending in the other 20 states. Almost immediately, exuberant couples began receiving marriage licenses previously denied to them. “This is the dream day,” said Sharon Baldwin, a plaintiff in a challenge to Oklahoma’s ban, as she and her partner got their license in the Tulsa County Clerk’s Office. Directly affected by Monday’s orders were Wisconsin, Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah and Virginia. Officials in those states had appealed lower court rulings in an effort to preserve their bans. Couples in six other states — Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina,

West Virginia and Wyoming — should be able to get married in short order since those states would be bound by the same appellate rulings that have been on hold. While county clerks in a number of states quickly began issuing licenses to gay and lesbian couples, in some other states affected by the court’s action officials did not sound



ready to give up the fight. However, their legal options are limited. Monday’s terse orders from the court were contained among more than 1,500 rejected appeals that had piled up over the summer. The outcome was not what either side expected or wanted. Both gay marriage supporters and opponents had asked the court to resolve

whether the Constitution grants same-sex couples the right to marry nationwide. The justices did not explain why they decided to leave that question unanswered for now. They may be waiting for a federal appeals court to break ranks with other appellate panels and uphold state laws defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

felt like it clay shooting could be a fun way to offer a unique event that people can come together for,” Rey said. The first fundraiser took place in 2006 at the Birchwood Recreation and Shooting Park in Anchorage and raised $90,000, she said. Last May the event grew to nearly 200 participants in the shooting tournament at the same location along with a banquet and silent auction. In eight years, Shoot for the Cure has raised more than $1 million, she said. Rey said donations to the foundation go toward grants and programs like an equestrian therapy program and scholarships to help kids receive tutoring while in the hospital. Rey has also worked with U.S. Congressmen Don Young, RAlaska, who has lobbied for funding clinical trials for a drug, Arikace, which can help treat patients. Since 2007, the foundation has awarded $300,000 in research to Providence Alaska

Medical Center in Anchorage. “We always look for new ways to provide for local patients,” she said. “We want to help lift the burden of families.” Rey wanted to expand the fundraiser to the Kenai Peninsula, said Steve Meyer, vice president of the Snowshoe Gun Club. A five-stand clay shooting mobile station was brought down from the Birchwood Shooting Park, which gave local shooters who are used to skeet and trap shooting more variety, he said. The entry fee for teams was $1,500 or $300 for each person in teams of five. Kenai corporate sponsorship included Kenai Spine, which donated $5,000 and $3,000 donated by Central Peninsula Hospital. Teams competed in all-shot rounds of 75 clays. The Alaska Shooting Stars Youth Team with coaches Stu Goldstein and Bobby Cox won the overall event. Meyer said the event was

well attended and was for a worthy cause that the club board embraced. He said the club would like to continue the annual fundraiser, but might change the event to be held in the spring so more people can attend. “With it being in the fall, a lot of gun club members are hunters and some people who would like to participate might be out of the loop,” Meyer said. “We look forward to promoting the event. We are all about supporting the community.” Rey said she estimated the event raised nearly $20,000. “This is my destiny to continue to raise awareness and fight for a cure,” Rey said. “I would like to get the word out to support patients in Alaska and find out what families need.” Fore more information, visit the website

Rey said she was motivated by a story of a young Alaskan man who needed a lung transplant and was set to travel out of state for surgery but died while waiting for the logistics of his travel to be figured out. Nationwide cystic fibrosis affects 30,000 people. It is more difficult for Alaskans to receive treatment due to the remote distance and lack of resources, Rey said.

Alaska Guard firing decisions reversed ANCHORAGE (AP) — The acting commander of the Alaska National Guard fired two high-ranking officers last week but reversed the decision a day later at the direction of Gov. Sean Parnell. Brigadier Gen. Mike Bridges on Thursday asked for the resignations of Brigadier Gen. Catherine Jorgensen and Col. Edie Grunwald but rescinded the action Friday. Both had applied to be adjutant general, the top position in the Alaska National Guard.

Bridges has also applied to be the permanent commander. Parnell directed Bridges to rehire the officers after learning that they had applied for the job. Parnell’s spokeswoman, Sharon Leighow, said Parnell did not want an appearance of impropriety, the Alaska Dispatch News. Bridges, who would not say why he fired Jorgenson and Grunwald, took responsibility for the reversal. “I initiated some leadership changes without consult-

ing with the governor’s office, which I rescinded within 24 hours,” Bridges said Sunday. “My fault.” The firing and rehiring is the latest development for the troubled Alaska National Guard. After allegations of sexual assault within the agency, a federal report released Sept. 4 found evidence of fraud and ethical misconduct. Parnell asked for the resignation of Maj. Gen. Thomas Katkus, the adjutant general, and McHugh Pierre, his top

civilian aide and the deputy commissioner of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. Parnell on Thursday said three more guard officials would be fired but that personnel laws prohibited naming them. That same day, Bridges asked for the resignation of Jorgensen, chief of staff for the Army National Guard, and Grunwald, a senior adviser on manpower and personnel matters. He had not told Parnell, Leighow said.

Darien has an extensive criminal history including several domestic violence charges on at least three different woman,

including multiple allegations of violent attacks on a woman listed as a longtime domestic partner, according to court documents. In at least one of those cases, Darien was convicted of reckless endangerment when he hit and choked the woman until she lost consciousness, according to court records. At the time, he was sentenced to three years of probation and served 20 days in jail.

It is not clear if the current domestic violence charge was committed against one of the women Darien has previously been charged with assaulting. Wilson also has several arrests for probation and drug violations and driving without a valid license. After he was arrested Sunday Darien was taken to the Wildwood Pre-Trial facility in Kenai.

companies to do the same in her speech, which she hopes can be kept rather informal. AFN President Julie Kitka wrote in a statement that the group is continually looking to include new voices within its community. “There are many shining lights and people of courage who make a difference in Alaska,” Kitka wrote. “Some quietly take actions every day. Some take actions working across various communities and sectors and are so inspiring, AFN wants to share their work at our convention. The two individuals who were selected as keynoters for 2014 are such individuals.” Tosi said another message the two hope to emphasize is one to push culturally diverse Alaskans to come together over common issues and address both positive goals and serious challenges. It’s a message his nonprofit, AK PRIDE, spreads to Alaska’s youth. AK PRIDE works to help young people identify their passions and strengths and pursue them as far as they are willing take them by connecting kids with others who have experience in their chosen path, whatever it may be, Tosi said. Such encouragement in athletics helped him reach the NFL and taught him lessons that have translated to other aspects of life, notably the importance of teamwork. Giving kids an avenue to chase their dreams and reiterating to them that they should be proud of their subsequent accomplishments is how AK PRIDE tries to break the cycles of substance abuse and domestic and sexual violence that plague parts of the state. “A lot of the work I’ve been a part of has not been because of myself alone, but partnering with others, working together, uniting together and how important that message is to unite — take action. If Miriam can do it you can as well; if I can do it you can too,” Tosi said. “Taking pride in our community is what I’ve always represented and continuing to share that message is what I’m going to do. I’m really excited to work with Miriam again and to get this message across that we’re here to rise as one.”

Tosi. After a simple Facebook message the Stop the Violence car wash and block party was arranged just two days later. More than 1,500 people showed up for the event to draw attention to Alaska nonprofit organizations that offer assistance to victims of violent crimes, Aarons said. The pair and their volunteers raised nearly $25,000 that went to the family members of the victims of the terrible tragedy that occurred just days prior. Tosi, who manages the Northway Mall where the rally was held, remembers being particularly proud of the people of Anchorage for their turnout and support. “It was many Alaskans that came together. I shook every person’s hand that was waiting in line and the line was probably 20 to 30 cars long, and everyone in line did not mind waiting because they knew what they were there for. It was amazing, truly amazing,” he said. “It was one of those healing moments.” Their work that day exemplified the “Rise as One” theme of this year’s AFN Convention. Aarons admits to already having some jitters at the thought of standing before the AFN crowd, particularly because she feels a “pretty big responsibility,” she said. However, she hopes that with Tosi’s help a can-do message comes through. “Really, one of my underlying messages is that I’m just a regular person,” Aarons said. “Before I teamed up with Mao I was just a lady pregnant with twins and I happened to have a little bit of faith in my idea and I teamed up with the right person and that was really the key to making something happen.” A Bering Straits Native Corp. shareholder and the company’s communications director, Aarons said her employer’s flexibility and support are imperative to some of the volunteer work she does. “I’m thankful I work for a company that encourages its employees to get out in the community and do things,” she Elwood Brehmer can be said. reached at elwood.brehmer@ She plans to encourage other

Nats, Harper stay alive against Giants JANIE McCAULEY AP Baseball Writer

SAN FRANCISCO — Eye black and uniform still on, Bryce Harper emerged from a different kind of fog than typically seen in San Francisco. This was the celebratory stuff from a Nationals victory party, and he had earned it, all right. Harper screamed out in delight as he crossed the plate with Washington ahead at last. After all those extra innings and a subdued cross-country flight, the Nationals had broken through — with some help from Madison Bumgarner’s big blunder. Doug Fister pitched seven shutout innings and the Nationals capitalized on Bumgarner’s one off-target throw, stav-

ing off elimination in the NL Division Series with a 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Monday. “Being able to get that momentum swing to us a little bit is definitely huge,” said Harper, who also made a difficult running catch in the gap. Fister dazzled again in San Francisco, helping the Nationals cut their deficit to 2-1 in the best-of-five series. They ended the Giants’ 10-game postseason winning streak that started with Game 5 of the 2012 NL Championship Series against St. Louis. Washington scored two runs on Bumgarner’s throwing error in the seventh inning to end the ace’s 22-inning scoreless streak. Harper punctuated the victory with a solo homer in the ninth. Drew Storen allowed the first two

batters to reach in the bottom of the ninth but shook off his postseason struggles, allowing a run in closing it out as Washington forced a Game 4 on Tuesday night. Now, the 96-win Nationals will send left-hander Gio Gonzalez up against San Francisco right-hander Ryan Vogelsong, hoping to pull out the fog machine they used after wins all season one more time. “We just needed one break,” Storen said. “It’s been a tough couple innings here to start and we got our break. It’s just a matter of building on it, and we live to see another day.” On a day Bumgarner had been nearly untouchable, his own miscue prevented a three-game sweep. Bumgarner fielded Wilson Ramos’ two-strike sacrifice bunt between the

mound and the first-base line and fired to third rather than going for the sure out at first. “We probably should have taken the out of first. I made a mistake telling him to throw to third,” catcher Buster Posey said. “It happens.” Bumgarner’s throw sailed wide of Pablo Sandoval’s outstretched glove and bounced all the way to the tarp along the left-field wall before rolling over the bullpen mounds where two relievers were warming up. Sandoval nearly did the splits trying to make the play and stayed down in pain as the two runs scored. Trainers checked on the third baseman and he remained in the game. “That was an important play right now. In my mind I was like, ‘I have to do it, have to do it,’ Ramos said. “For

me, that changed the whole game. Bumgarner threw a really good game. Those little things happen in games. If we do the little things, we’ll have an opportunity to win this series.” Asdrubal Cabrera followed with an RBI single. He spent the final eight innings watching the Giants’ 2-1, 18-inning victory Saturday night after his ejection for arguing a called third strike. Fister outpitched Bumgarner at AT&T Park for the second time in four months, leaving behind the memory of his October outing here in Game 2 of the 2012 World Series. Fister took a line drive to the right side of his head that day — while also opposing Bumgarner — but stayed in the game and carried a shutout into the seventh before Detroit lost 2-0 and was swept.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson escapes the grasp of Redskins strong safety Bashaud Breeland during the first half of an NFL football game in Landover, Maryland, Monday.

Wilson runs over Washington Seahawks improve to 11-1 in prime time under Carroll JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer

LANDOVER, Md. — How’s this for a frustrating hat trick: Percy Harvin had three touchdowns called back because of penalties. “Well, the first one I was cool with,” he said. “I was like, ‘OK.’ Then when the second one happened, I was like, ‘Wow.’ And then when the third one happened I just flipped my hands down. I couldn’t believe it.” Were it not for the self-inflicted wounds, the Seattle Seahawks might have had a cakewalk against the Washington Redskins. As it was, they settled

for a 27-17 win in a Monday night game flush with “neutral zone infractions,” holds, false starts and even a 15-yarder that was called because someone, according to the referee, “hit a player on the ground unnecessarily.” “It could’ve been a very big night for us,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “We came out flying, but we were just a little bit out of whack.” One player who definitely wasn’t out of whack was Russell Wilson, who rushed for a career-high 122 yards and a touchdown and completed 18 of 24 passes for 201 yards with two scores as the Seahawks (31) maintained their dominance

in games played under the lights. Seattle is an NFL-best 21-8 on Monday nights, including nine wins in a row. The team is also 11-1 in prime time under Carroll. Wilson dazzled throughout, whether it was a designed run or a scramble out of the pocket. He had rushes of 16, 29, 13 and 22 in the first two drives. He headed for the pylon on a clinical zone-read run for a 9-yard score in the second quarter, giving Seattle a 17-0 lead, and pulled off two incredible runfor-his-life scrambles in the second half after the Redskins threatened to make a game of it. “It was like he wasn’t Su-

perman in the second half,” Redskins safety Ryan Clark said. “He was, like, Clark Kent, half-Superman. He still did his thing.” But how bad was the Seahawks’ penalty bug? It wasn’t until a 4-yard run by Alfred Morris with three minutes left in the first half that the Redskins’ total yards (47) passed Seattle’s penalty yards (45) for good. “I just think it’s ‘Monday Night Football.’ You know, the fans are watching and everybody wants to see a good game, so they’re going to try to make it as close as possible,” Seattle safety Earl Thomas said. “It’s a business.”

ST. LOUIS — John Lackey was just as advertised for the St. Louis Cardinals. Their postseason power surge has been a big surprise. Kolten Wong hit a two-run homer to snap a seventh-inning tie, Matt Carpenter went deep for the third straight game and Lackey pitched St. Louis past the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 Monday night to give the Cardinals a 2-1 lead in their bestof-five NL Division Series. “Well, we just kind of knew what we were going to get,” St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. “He wants the ball. He proves it by how he goes out and throws.” Facing elimination in St. Louis for the second consecutive postseason, the Dodgers will turn to ace Clayton Kershaw on short rest Tuesday night in Game 4. Shelby Miller makes his first playoff start for the Cardinals, one win from a fourth straight trip to the NL Championship Series. The Cardinals finished off Los Angeles in a six-game NLCS last fall, knocking out Kershaw in the fifth inning of a 9-0 blowout in the final game. Two runners reached against Trevor Rosenthal in the ninth before he earned his second save of the series — with an assist from the grounds crew on a rainy night. Rosenthal said he was unable to find his footing, missing badly on consecutive pitches to Juan Uribe, before the grounds crew applied a drying agent and raked the mound. The right-hander then threw a pair of practice pitches and regained his stride, retiring the next two

batters on flies to right for his sixth career postseason save. Hanley Ramirez had three of the Dodgers’ seven hits, including an RBI double in the sixth. Lackey, acquired from Boston at the trade deadline, gave up five hits in seven innings with eight strikeouts. The veteran right-hander improved to 7-5 in postseason play, including three wins for the Red Sox last year — one against St. Louis in the World Series. “I think there’s definitely different energy, different adrenaline level. And that can take you to special places when you use it the right way,” Lackey said. “The atmosphere tonight was great. Fans were unbelievable. You feel that. You feed off that. If you channel it the right way, it can definitely help you out.” Asked what made the 35-year-old Lackey so tough, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly mentioned plate umpire Dale Scott. “I thought Dale was very generous,” Mattingly said. “We had a lot of guys complaining about the strike zone. We felt like he was really generous, and that puts you in a bind. “You can’t go too far with it, but really generous.” St. Louis hit 105 homers in the regular season, the secondlowest total in the majors, ahead of only Kansas City. But the Cardinals have shown plenty of power in the playoffs, scoring 10 of their 15 runs on six homers in three games. Carpenter connected in the third and then Wong, the rookie second baseman who was picked off to end a World Series loss against Boston last year, hit a two-run shot off loser Scott Elbert to put the Cardinals ahead 3-1.

Lions release Henery after 3-miss performance By The Associated Press

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — The Detroit Lions are looking for kicking help once again. The Lions released kicker Alex Henery on Monday, a day after Henery missed three field-goal attempts during Detroit’s 17-14 home loss to the Buffalo Bills. One of the misses was a 50-yard try in the final minute that would have given the Lions the lead. Henery also missed from 44 and 47 yards and went 1 for 5 during his twoweek stint. “That’s this business,” wide receiver Golden Tate said. “Either you handle your business or they’ll find someone who will. It’s tough we’ve had to experience that the last few weeks and it’s tough that that’s held us back a little bit, but at the end of the day I don’t think you can ever blame the game on any one (person).” Detroit (3-2) also released rookie kicker Nate Freese after Week 3. Freese made just 3 of 7 attempts and was 0 of 4 from 40 yards or longer. The Lions will reportedly hold tryouts Tuesday as they look for yet another kicker to fill the void entering Sunday’s game at Minnesota (2-3). “We’ve got to find a performer,” coach

Jim Caldwell said. “We’ve got to get a guy who’s consistent under pressure and able to put points on the board. “In this league there are going to be close games. Guys in that position are going to decide a number of games and we’ve got to make certain we get the right guy for us.”

Both sides agreed last month on the new policy, which took effect Monday.

Sports Briefs Harris faces sexual assault allegation GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida freshman Treon Harris went from potentially becoming the starting quarterback to being suspended indefinitely in a matter of hours Monday. Harris was banned from all team activities by the football program while authorities investigate sexual assault allegations made against him. The school said Harris has been accused of sexually assaulting a female student around 3 a.m. Sunday — hours after he helped Florida rally to beat Tennessee 10-9 in Knoxville — at an on-campus residence hall. The University Police Department is investigating the alleged assault and working with the Gainesville Police Department to assist with collection and analysis of forensic evidence. A GPD forensics crime unit truck was parked outside the residence hall Monday afternoon. “We have no tolerance for sexual assault on our campus,” university President Bernie Machen said in a statement. “The university is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for every member of the UF community. “We must strive to protect all of our students from sexual harassment and assault, and do everything in our power to promote a safe learning environment.” Harris, a 5-foot-11, 190-pound Miami native, has not been arrested. His attorney, Huntley Johnson, said he doesn’t expect his client to be, either.

A-12 Peninsula Clarion, Tuesday, October 7, 2014


Mom gets great pleasure from a well-made bed DEAR ABBY: Two of my granddaughters have posted pictures on Instagram that show them facing away from the camera with their bottoms covered and their tops nude. They said this is part of the “Topless Tour.” They said it’s no big deal because it only shows their back and “everyone does it.” I feel it is inappropriate to post something like this on social media. Will Abigail Van Buren you please share your opinion? — GRANDMA IN UTAH DEAR GRANDMA: I think it’s unwise, but the times they are a-changin’ and along with them, the current fads. The Topless Tour — photos of topless women shot from the rear in a scenic location and posted on social media — is just another one of them. Calm down and thank your higher power that this fad is tame. At one point, people were lowering their pants and “mooning” passing trains and cars.

DEAR ABBY: What kind of advice do you have for a guy who is falling in love with a co-worker? We are nurses in a fast-paced intensive care unit. We greatly depend on each other to provide patient care and emotional support. There are so many reasons I want to tell her how I feel, but the fear of messing things up with her scares me. — R.N. WITH A SECRET DEAR R.N.: Not knowing what the policy at your hospital is regarding workplace romances, you’d be wise to start slowly. I assume you see her outside the ICU. A way to start would be to ask her to join you for lunch, coffee, or a drink and “quick dinner” after work. If she says yes, it means she could be interested in you, too. If not — perhaps because she’s already involved with someone — you won’t be embarrassed. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Pisces if born before 6:06 a.m. (PDT). Afterward, the Moon will be in Aries. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014: This year you appear to be heading down the path to victory. Please note that there could be a twist or two along the way. Your endurance and fortitude count. You speak your mind easily. Emphasize details, and you will land well. If you are single, you will meet someone very special through another person; it will be a natural connection. If you are attached, the two of you often agree to disagree. Respect each other’s opinions and discuss new ways of approaching certain topics. ARIES often pushes you too far. 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) HHHHH Your creativity can turn on and off, much like a faucet. At times you’ll surprise yourself with sudden flashes of inspiration, but there are moments when nothing will come to mind. Ride with the ups and downs. Tonight: Live it up. Others depend on your vivaciousness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Mull over an issue until you feel that you have found the right answer. You might go through this process several times as insights occur, and it could force you to reexamine your original premise. You could be overly eager without realizing it. Tonight: Indulge a little. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH Zero in on what you feel is absolutely necessary. A meeting


or get-together might define your plans and your day much more than you realize. Your instincts could play out in an odd way. Trust your judgment. Tonight: Make the most of the moment. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHH Pressure builds, and you might be tempted to give someone a very clear “no” response. Know that you will have to see what is happening with an older individual first. Your sensitivity to this person is an asset yet a detriment at the same time. Tonight: Out till the wee hours. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Your imagination tends to wander. While you might be amused with your meanderings, someone who wants to have a serious talk won’t be amused. You could gain a lot of insight if you slow down and be present with this person. Tonight: Follow the music. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Conversations will work better on a one-on-one level than in a meeting with others. A partner could surprise you with his or her perspective. Extreme variations in your feelings could hit you from out of the blue. Don’t push to have your way. Tonight: With a favorite person. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You can see how dominant others might be. Be smart, and let events, discussions and plans unravel without any interference. You’ll want to detach from all power plays for now. What you witness as a result could amaze you. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Remain disciplined, as you

Hints from Heloise

Jacqueline Bigar’s Stars have a lot to accomplish. Fatigue could be a problem if you choose not to delegate some of your responsibilities. A lot is coming down the path that you will have to handle. You might need to spend more than you want right now. Tonight: Slow down. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You seem feistier than you have been in a while. You will try to verbalize what you feel, yet somehow the wrong words could come out. The unexpected will play a role in your decisions. You might not be ready to have a discussion just yet. Tonight: Be spontaneous. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You’ll have a strong desire to stay close to home. You might not want to have a serious conversation until you make a decision. A partner or close loved one is far more optimistic than you are. You also could be angrier than you realize. Tonight: Invite a friend to drop by. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHYou could be overwhelmed by what is happening around you. A friend could be pushing you way too hard. Your communication will be direct, but this person just might not hear you. He or she will hear the words but not get the message. Tonight: Favorite person, favorite spot. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HH Tighten the reins on your spending. Ultimately, you’ll want to have the funds when you really need them. Choose to be discreet with someone you must answer to. The unexpected could occur, for better or worse. Tonight: Treat a pal to some munchies.

I didn’t order this! Dear Heloise: What do I do about magazines that started coming to my house that I didn’t order? I’ve tried calling the phone number in the magazines, and they tell me they didn’t send the magazine. They informed me that companies are sending magazines and then send a bill. I don’t know who to get in touch with. Can you give me any information on this new rip-off? — Jan in Iowa Welcome to a new scam! Here’s the information to take care of this pronto! Sometimes when ordering something online, you may get a magazine you didn’t order. They might say it is a “thank you” gift for two to three months, then if you don’t cancel, it’s a subscription, which you are supposed to pay for! Not fair, folks. You may have to wait to receive a “bill” (which is NOT a legitimate bill, since you did not order a product) from that company. This may be a different business from the magazine, which really adds to the confusion. There should be a phone number or website listed on the bogus bill. Use that to contact the company and inform it that you did not order the subscription, and tell them to cancel the subscription ASAP. Check your credit-card bills carefully, as some of these sneaky scammers will automatically charge your credit card if you don’t cancel the subscription. — Heloise Adjustable space Dear Heloise: My hint involves an adjustable shower rod. I use it in a pickup truck or SUV to keep things from sliding around. — Marty M., Perryton, Texas

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have four great kids. They are well-behaved, respectful and full of fun. Hubby and I are having a disagreement concerning them, however. I am an admitted “bed snob.” I make every bed in the house every day, just the way I want them done. It makes me crazy when my husband insists that the kids do it themselves. Our kids have homework, daily chores they alternate (cleaning the kitchen after dinner, doing laundry, etc.), as well as what we call “Chore Day Sunday,” which is a family affair when everyone has a list of larger chores to complete. The kids know how to make their beds because I have taught them, and I feel that insisting they make their beds daily, too, is silly. I ENJOY doing this small thing. Am I crazy or is he overreacting? — HOMEMAKER IN GEORGIA DEAR HOMEMAKER: You’re not crazy. I’d be curious to know why your husband feels so strongly about this, particularly since the kids know how to make their beds and you have made clear that you do it because you enjoy it. Having their beds made for them won’t scar your offspring for life, so ask “Hubby” to indulge you by letting it go and not creating a problem where one doesn’t exist.

Pet Tails

Peninsula Clarion, Tuesday, October 7, 2014


Pets receive blessing from St. Louis church ST. LOUIS (AP) — A vulture, along with more traditional pets such as dogs and cats, attended a service at a downtown St. Louis church that blesses animals as part of an annual tradition. On Sunday, churchgoers and their pets listened to a sermon at the Christ Cathedral Church about the life of St. Francis of Assisi, a 12th century friar whom many Christian churches pay tribute to each October. He’s known for renouncing his wealth and for his special relationship with animals and the environment. “It’s one of my favorite evenings of the year because it’s pure joy,” said the Rev. Michael Kinman, dean of Christ Church Cathedral. Pets “teach us how to love,” he said. After the sermon, pet owners lined up in a church aisle and brought their animals to receive blessings and red bandannas. Attorney Bruce Hopson and technology executive Jim





Goodwin told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch they brought their 6-year-old dog Ava for a blessing. Religion is important in their family, which Ava is a part of, they said. Jean Caton’s two 8-yearold cats, Pansy Amber and Lily Freckles, snuggled in a pet stroller. They “are a blessing to me,” she said. “People who love pets are a special kind of people.” Adele Moore, founder of TreeHouse Wildlife Center, brought Einstein, a vulture with a bright pink nose and a white beak. Her nonprofit organization, dedicated to the preservation of wildlife, received donations that were collected at the service. Contributions also went to animal rescue organizations Animal House and Stray Rescue of St. Louis. Moore said the blessing of the animals was just a simple “acknowledgement of God’s creatures.”
