Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, Libertarian candidate Mark Fish and Republican candidate Dan Sullivan answered a series of questions during a forum hosted by the Kenai and Soldotna Chambers of Commerce Tuesday in Kenai.

Senate candidates share views By RASHAH McCHESNEY Peninsula Clarion

In as much as could be shared in oneminute increments, the three candidates for Alaska’s open U.S. Senate seat expounded issues in Cook Inlet, the state and nationwide during a Tuesday forum in Kenai. The format of the discussion did not allow for debate or much back-and-forth between candidates, as they answered questions on a variety of topics ranging from bluff erosion and fishing to the federal role in oil and gas development, and safeguarding against Ebola. The candidates are in the final stretch of campaigning and Alaskans will head to the ballot box in two weeks to decide who will represent them for the next six years. During the hour-long discussion, Republican Dan Sullivan repeatedly tried to tie incumbent Mark Begich, D-Alaska, to

the policies of President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Obamacare, opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to development and the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. “This is, again, where Mark Begich and I, we just have differences of opinion,” Sullivan said in response to a question on the effectiveness of Obamacare and its effect on Alaskans. “He was the deciding vote on Obamacare, I was the attorney general who sued to stop it. It’s clearly an important issue for Alaskans. But, the promises that were made by the President, by Mark, by Nancy Pelosi, that you could keep your health care, that costs would go down, you could keep your doctor if you wanted, none of that is happening.” Begich ignored many of the jabs, but dismissed the allegation that he was the deciding vote on Obamacare, saying that

Senate candidates on Cook Inlet issues: Kenai Bluff Erosion Project has been the City of Kenai’s No. 1 priority for over 25 years. For the last two years, the project has been stalled. What can be done, or what will you do ... to move this important project forward? Mark Fish: “Well, one thing that needs to be done, that needs to be done in all of our regulatory agencies, is a change of culture. You know ... the government has a tendency to build castles instead of drawbridges. They feel that they’re under assault, they need more money to do anything and, consequently, what happens is a slow-down in virtually everything that they do.”

ANCHORAGE (AP) — Three leaders of the Alaska National Guard were removed from their positions in the wake of investigations of sexual abuse and other allegations of misconduct within the agency. Brig. Gen. Catherine Jorgensen was removed as chief of staff, Gov. Sean Parnell’s office announced in a release late Monday. Brig. Gen. Donald Wenke was replaced as commander of the 176th Wing, and Col. Edith Grunwald is no longer director of human resources. Attempts by The Associated Press to get comment from Jorgensen, Wenke and Grunwald on Tuesday weren’t immediately successful. Also on Monday, the Anchorage School District banned military recruiters from campuses after recent media reports alleged recruiters from the Alaska Army National Guard made inappropriate advances toward high school students. Jorgensen and Grunwald had been fired from their jobs earlier this month then reinstated at the direction of Parnell, who said his office and the National Guard Bureau hadn’t been consulted. Brigadier Gen. Mike Bridges, acting commander of the Guard, wouldn’t say why he previously fired Jorgensen and Grunwald. On the Alaska Public Radio program “Talk of Alaska” Tuesday, Parnell said he followed up with then-Adjutant General Thomas Katkus and Guard leadership on every allegation that came his way and said he was assured about the path they See GUARD, page A-13

School board considers new lobbying approach By KELLY SULLIVAN Peninsula Clarion

The Kenai Peninsula Borough Board of Education members on Tuesday considered options to lobby for education funding. Sen. Peter Micciche, R-Soldotna, asked the school board to identify targeted or specialized programs that address gaps

in education statewide. Legislators may be more swayed if they see results coming from what they are spending money on, he said. When it comes to foundational funding, there are schools in the Alaska education system, certain locations or demographics, that aren’t meeting the mark, Micciche said.

Education is funded for the state as whole, not by individual districts, Micciche said. Lobbying for funding is achieved in a group, he said. “The legislature is frustrated because they are funding more and not getting results,” Micciche said. “Educators are frustrated because they are not getting the leadership from the state that they need.”

Icy conditions may have caused at least two vehicle rollover accidents Tuesday on the Sterling Highway. A sport utility vehicle rollover near Mile 66 has traffic down to one lane. Alaska State Troopers were on-scene directing traffic for at least two hours. Mile 66 is near the Kelly and Petersen lakes turnoff on the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. The vehicle blocked the southbound lane and a tow truck had to be sent to remove it. The one-vehicle accident did not appear to result in any life-threatening injuries, said Trooper Spokesperson Beth Ipsen. She said another rollover

The discussion between Micciche and the board came just before the board’s second meeting for developing the fiscal year 2016 budget. The school district needs a basic amount of money to function every year, said school board member Sunni Hilts. The fight in Juneau is every year is about the basics.

Fishermen receive aid for 2012 season By MOLLY DISCHNER Morris News Service-Alaska/

Traffic on the Sterling Highway narrowed to one lane Tuesday after a rollover accident near the south end of the Skilak Loop, blocked the southbound lane of the road.

Micciche said by comparison, the Kenai Peninsula school district generates academically sound students, but the same progress is not consistent statewide. “You can’t think district by district in this state,” Hilts said. “We should see what we do well and offer those methods to other districts.”

More than 1,000 Alaska fishermen will share in $7.5 million worth of payments to mitigate the 2012 fisheries disaster in Cook Inlet and on the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers. Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission Executive Director Randy Fisher said the checks were mailed Oct. 17. In Cook Inlet, 454 checks were mailed — 481 eligible fishermen received applica-

tions for the payments. Another 330 checks were sent to Kuskokwim fishermen, out of 471 initially expected to be eligible, and 564 out of 599 eligible Yukon fishermen received payments. Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich both praised the payments. “This initial assistance targets those most directly affected, the commercial fishermen whose fisheries were closed in the Yukon, Kuskokwim and Cook Inlet to allow the chinook to get to the spawning grounds,” See AID, page A-13

Asian carp DNA found in Green Bay’s Fox River GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Asian carp DNA has been found in the Fox River in downtown Green Bay but the source of the invasive fish’s genetic material is unclear, Wisconsin wildlife officials said Tuesday. A single positive sample for silver carp was identified from 200 samples taken this summer in the Fox, a tributary of Lake Michigan, the state Department of Natural Resources said. The discovery by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was in the heart of the city and was part of a survey that started at the mouth of the river and ended about five miles upstream, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

What Others Say

Judge’s ruling correct on marriage, but governor has right to appeal On Sunday, Oct. 12, U.S. District

Court Judge Timothy Burgess issued a decision overturning Alaska’s constitutional ban on samesex marriage, finding that it violates the rights of U.S. citizens to equal protection under the law. Within the hour, Gov. Sean Parnell declared the state will fight the issue in the courts, despite a raft of rulings overturning bans similar to Alaska’s in the courts above Judge Burgess to whom the state will appeal. So who’s right? Is Judge Burgess right to declare the ban a violation of the U.S. constitution and therefore void, or is Gov. Parnell in the right in saying he plans to defend the Alaska constitution? The answer, despite the disconnect in their views of the issue, is both. Judge Burgess is right to rule that restricting the ability of same-sex couples to marry contravenes the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The right to marry, though some believe otherwise, is indeed a right and not a privilege, and should not be restricted based on beliefs not enshrined in law. Furthermore, the assertion that granting that right to marry to same-sex couples in any way harms or degrades others is without merit. Some have said that by continuing the state’s suit over the issue after rulings by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals striking down similar bans in Idaho and Nevada — and the U.S. Supreme Court’s declining cases seeking to overturn that court’s ruling on the issue — Gov. Parnell is needlessly wasting the state’s time and money. But the governor is within his rights and duties to defend a citizenpassed initiative amending the state constitution. His mandate is to uphold state laws, and it’s his prerogative to continue supporting those laws until the federal courts have ruled specifically on Alaska’s laws, not those of other states. The governor should not, however, hold out much hope of success in continuing the legal case. As stated, the federal courts from Judge Burgess upward have made clear — in some cases very recently — how they view the issue, and that viewpoint is not likely to change given the legal arguments made in Alaska’s case. The state’s constitutional ban went into effect in 1998, the first of its kind in the nation. In the 16 years since, there has been a sea change in views on the issue. In a move that would have been political suicide a generation ago, both of Alaska’s U.S. senators — a Republican and a Democrat — have gone on record in the past two years supporting same-sex marriage. As of earlier this month, samesex marriage is legal in a majority of states. This is an issue on which the tide has definitively turned and will not turn back. At the same time, the clarity now emerging on the issue by way of the courts will not quell the difficulty that many of our friends, neighbors and family members have in reconciling the issue with their own beliefs. Coming to a place where we all see eye to eye on the marriage issue is likely to take years and, more likely, decades. But compassion for others is at the heart of nearly all belief systems, and America is underlain by the bedrock principle that all people are created equal and should be treated as such. The rulings defending that principle with regard to same-sex marriage are correct, and we have faith that our state and our nation ultimately will be stronger for them. — Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Oct. 15

Letters to the Editor Critical Habitat Areas need protection Critical Habitat Areas — the name says it all. In response to requests from many local citizen groups, the Alaska legislature created a number of critical habitat areas. The purpose of creating these 32 areas was to preserve critical habitat for the preservation of fish and wildlife so that present and future generations would have the best hope of sustaining our diverse populations. Most Alaskans associate wide open spaces and abundant fish and wildlife as an integral part of who we are and what being an Alaskan means. Governor Parnell through Administrative Order 266 has ordered the Department of Fish and Game to roll back protections of these areas so that development can be streamlined. Most specifically he wants to avoid public input in the permitting process. This is insane. Every Alaskan know what happens when powerful special interests are given carte blanche to exploit Alaskan lands. A very few get much more wealthy, some get temporary jobs and the rest of us are left living with devastated land that we all can remember being much more productive. Please sign the petition at akhabitat.com and join the effort to prevent degradation of our Critical Habitat areas. What part of that name does our governor not understand? Edward A Schmitt Chairman, Kenai Area Fisherman’s Coalition Co-director, Alaska Wildlife Alliance

Fish board shenanigans point to need for new leadership Well, we get more shenanigans from the board of fish. These political appointees have not deliberated in Soldotna since 1999. What is neutral about that? A rogue board with a re-allocation agenda for Cook Inlet is the best Governor Parnell can do. This is the second time he was spurned by his board. Can you say leadership? Bill Walker supports biological management for the maximum sustained yield and said that when he is elected governor the fish board will deliberate here on the Kenai Peninsula. I am supporting Bill Walker for governor, for change, for a future, for real. Vote Walker-Mallot on election day. John McCombs Ninilchik

two choices. For or against. How I feel about gay marriage has nothing to do with what I think government should be doing. But Americans refuse to ask honest questions about most social/moral issues. Abortion, Capital Punishment and Gay marriage. For or against are the only choices. No honest questions. My fellow Christian friends believe that I must support marriage as defined by government. One man and one woman. After all, it is a moral issue, isn’t it? What will government decide is the next moral issue, gluttony? No more super-sized meals. How about government taking my assault weapon? After all some believe gun control is a moral issue. My religious belief is just that, my belief. I do not want to impose my moral standard on others. So how about an honest question, Clarion: Why is government in the marriage business? Thoreau said it best: “Government is best which governs not at all.” That brings up another honest question that falls on deaf ears and blind eyes. What is the purpose of government? It certainly not about moral issues based on their past performance. Ray Southwell Nikiski

More detail needed on challenger’s agenda Why doesn’t the challenger for Senator Begich’s seat tell us what he can do rather than tell us his view of the incumbent? The country needs people who can work together not more divisive comments that tear us apart. I am particularly incensed by many cardboard mailers from candidate Sullivan who tells us that Senator Begich has voted with the President 97 percent or 95 percent or 93 percent of the time. Maybe he hasn’t checked the U.S. Constitution but it clearly states that Congress votes and the President doesn’t vote on legislation. Sammy Crawford Kenai

Court decision alters marriage contracts The institution of marriage is a relationship with a public interest. It is a three party contract authorized by the state. State licensing is only one aspect of public involvement in and regulation of, the obligations of this basic societal relationship. In 1999 the state of Alaska granted me a license to marry. All contracts have parties, an offer, an acceptance and consideration. As a party to the contract in 1999, the state of Alaska represented to me that the contractual obligations I was undertaking were binding between one man and one woman. That has been true under natural law and has been the enacted and enforced law of these United States of America at least since Reynolds v. U.S 98 U.S. 145 (1878) and Mormon Church v. U. S. 136 U.S. 1 (1890). The state of Alaska has reconfirmed these contractual conditions by a majority vote of its citizens in a 1998 Constitutional amendment at Article 1, Section 25, As I now understand it, a court (somewhere) has altered the nature of marriage contracts in Alaska. Unilaterally, the court is altering the terms of the contract entered into among myself, my husband and the state of Alaska in 1999. These unagreed to changes conflict with even the most elemental provisions of contract law. My question is: Do I sue in State or Federal Court for the breach of the terms of my marriage contract?

IS fighters seize weapons cache meant for Kurds By DIAA HADID Associated Press BEIRUT — Islamic State group fighters seized at least one cache of weapons airdropped by U.S.-led coalition forces that were meant to supply Kurdish militiamen battling the extremist group in a border town, activists said Tuesday. The cache of weapons included hand grenades, ammunition and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, according to a video uploaded by a media group loyal to the Islamic State group. The video appeared authentic and corresponded to The Associated Press’ reporting of the event. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which bases its information on a network of activists on the ground, said the militants had seized at least one cache. The caches were airdropped early on Monday to Kurds in the embattled Syrian town of Kobani that lies near the Turkish border.

The militant group has been trying to seize the town for over a month now, causing the exodus of some 200,000 people from the area into Turkey. While Kurds are battling on the ground, a U.S.led coalition is also targeting the militants from the air. On Tuesday, IS loyalists on social media posted sarcastic thank you notes to the United States, including one image that said “Team USA.” But the lost weapons drop was more an embarrassment than a great strategic loss. The Islamic State militants already possess millions of dollars-worth of U.S. weaponry that they captured from fleeing Iraqi soldiers when the group seized swaths of Iraq in a sudden sweep in June. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said the U.S. had seen the video but couldn’t confirm its accuracy and was seeking more information. On Tuesday, the U.S. Central Command said U.S. military forces conducted four airstrikes

near Kobani that destroyed IS fighting positions, an IS building and a large IS unit. Also Tuesday, Syrian government airstrikes hit a rebel-held town along the country’s southern border with Jordan, killing at least eight people. Activists with the Local Coordination Committees and the Observatory said the number of those killed was likely to rise as there are more victims under the rubble. The LCC said Syrian government planes dropped crude explosives-laden canisters on the town of Nasib on the Syria-Jordan border. The airstrikes are part of battles between Syrian government forces and Islamic rebel groups for control of the area.

$8M for 88 victims of abuse by Franciscan friar, athletic trainer BY JOE MANDAK Associated Press

PITTSBURGH — Eightyeight former students who were sexually molested by a Franciscan friar who worked as an athletic trainer at a Catholic high school have settled their legal claims for $8 million, according to two attorneys who represent more than half the victims. Altoona attorney Richard Serbin represents 13 former students at Bishop McCort High School in Johnstown, and Boston attorney Mitchell Garabedian represents 33. The students said they were abused by Brother Stephen Baker, who worked at the school, 60 miles east of Pittsburgh, from 1992 to 2001. Baker, 62, committed suicide at his monastery in Newry by stabbing himself in the heart

in January 2013. That occurred nine days after the Youngstown, Ohio, diocese disclosed abuse settlements with 11 former students who said they were abused by him at John F. Kennedy High School in Warren, Ohio, from 1986 to 1990. News of those settlements prompted many of the Bishop McCort victims to come forward. Serbin has been pursuing clergy abuse claims for nearly 30 years but said, “What’s unique here is the sheer number of students that were abused.” “I’ve filed claims against child predators who have had multiple victims, but this certainly was a predator that was prolific, and the position he was given as an athletic trainer allowed him to have such easy access to young people,” Serbin said.

‘Once again, you’re dealing with dioceses and religious orders that appear to be doing the right thing but are only reacting to getting caught.’ ­— Mitchell Garabedian, Boston attorney Garabedian said the victims settled for amounts between $60,000 and slightly more than $120,000 each, depending on the duration of abuse, its impact on their lives and other factors, including whether their claims would have been barred by the statute of limitations. “The settlements will help the victims gain a degree of closure and assist them in trying to heal from these terrible acts of sexual abuse,” Garabedian said.

A spokesman for Bishop McCort did not immediately return calls and emails seeking comment Tuesday. The school was owned and operated by the diocese, based 85 miles east of Pittsburgh, when the abuse occurred, but it is now run by an independent board. The school’s principal, who served when Baker was on the staff, resigned in June 2013 as the abuse allegations surfaced. Altoona Bishop Mark Bar-

tchak said in a statement: “The diocese hopes that this outcome will allow the victims to seek counseling and find the healing and comfort they deserve. We continue to pray for them and all victims of sexual abuse.” Diocesan spokesman Tony DeGol announced in August that the sale of the bishop’s home was pending and that money from the nearly $1 million asking price might be used to care for sexual-misconduct victims. Bartchak, who was not targeted in the abuse claims, has moved into the rectory at Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Altoona. “Once again, you’re dealing with dioceses and religious orders that appear to be doing the right thing but are only reacting to getting caught,” Garabedian said.

The settlement also named a former Altoona bishop who headed the diocese when the abuse occurred; Baker’s order, the Franciscan Friars of the Third Order Regular, based in Loretto; and the related Province of the Immaculate Conception. The Youngstown, Ohio, diocese also participated in the settlement. Franciscan officials didn’t immediately return calls for comment. A spokesman said the Youngstown, Ohio, diocese planned to release a statement. The settlement is believed to cover nearly all the former Bishop McCort students, nearly all males, who have alleged abuse. Garabedian said another former student had just come forward and separate legal action will be taken on his behalf.

Jewish group shifts view on Nazi Social Security benefit payments BY RICHARD LARDNER and RANDY HERSCHAFT Associated Press

WASHINGTON — An influent ial Jewish advocacy group said Tuesday it no longer supports allowing suspected Nazi war criminals to receive Social Security benefits. World Jewish Congress

President Ronald Lauder said in a statement to The Associated Press that U.S. law should be changed to stop the payments. Lauder’s statement followed an AP investigation that found dozens of Nazi suspects collected millions of dollars in benefits after being expelled from the United States.

Since 1979, at least 38 of 66 suspects kept their Social Security benefits. Of the 66 suspects, at least four are alive, living in Europe on U.S. Social Security. The AP also reported that the payments gave the U.S. Justice Department leverage to persuade Nazi suspects to sign voluntary departure agreements.

The payments flowed through a legal loophole that the World Jewish Congress lobbied to keep open during the 1990s. The thinking at the time was that Nazi suspects would agree to depart the U.S. voluntarily if they knew their Social Security benefits would continue. The expectation, Lauder said, was that sus-

pects would be held accountable for their alleged crimes in the countries they returned to. Yet only 10 suspects were ever prosecuted after being expelled. The Justice Department denied using Social Security benefits as a tool for removing Nazi suspects. The time has come to end

the payments. Lauder said. “There cannot and there should not be such a thing as legal closure when it comes to genocide, and we support the U.S. authorities in their efforts to track down all suspected Nazi war criminals, no matter what their age is today, and to bring them to justice,” Lauder said.

Egypt sets hearing for Al-Jazeera staff By MERRIT KENNEDY

CAIRO — A Cairo court has set an appeals hearing for three Al-Jazeera English journalists convicted of terrorism-related charges last June amid widespread international condemnation. Adel Fahmy, the brother of Mohammed Fahmy, acting Cairo bureau chief for Al-Jazeera English, said the scheduled court date is Jan. 1, 2015. He said the date is further away than the family had hoped for but the mere fact that it has been scheduled is a relief. Lawyer Negad Borai, who is representing Mohammed Fahmy, said he expects the Court of Cassation to take one

or two sessions to either send the case back to criminal court or uphold the original verdict. The three journalists — Egyptian-Canadian Fahmy, Australian correspondent Peter Greste and Egyptian producer Baher Mohammed — were convicted last June on charges linked to aiding the Muslim Brotherhood, which the government has declared a terrorist organization following last summer’s ouster of then-President Mohammed Morsi. Mohammed faces 10 years in prison while his two colleagues received seven-year sentences each. The journalists have repeatedly said that they are being punished for just doing their jobs. President Abdel Fattah el-

Sissi told a group of local journalists Tuesday that he is unable to issue a presidential pardon to the imprisoned journalists until after a final verdict. Fahmy’s brother Adel said that the family has been hoping for a presidential pardon. In an apparent reference to the Al-Jazeera case, el-Sissi said he thinks the ideal way to deal with transgressions by foreign journalists would be to deport them, according to a presidential spokesman. The verdict ignited a firestorm of international condemnation and raised concerns about the state of freedom of expression in Egypt. Amnesty International called the trial a “farcical spectacle” and a “ferocious attack on media freedom.”

Schools scoured in search for ambush suspect By MICHAEL RUBINKAM Associated Press

SWIFTWATER, Pa. — With two possible sightings in four days, a man charged in the deadly ambush of a state police barracks appears to have moved out of the deep woods and into a more heavily trafficked area of the Pocono Mountains. The sightings led to another round of school closures and a feeling among some residents that law enforcement is spinning its wheels more than five weeks into the massive manhunt. Officials in the Pocono Mountain School District canceled classes shortly after 5 a.m. Tuesday, reversing course after saying the night before that schools would stay open. Wendy Frable, a district spokeswoman, said officials changed their minds because law enforcement wasn’t searching on campus Monday night but had an extensive search presence there Tuesday morning. “Our parents and staff are understandably concerned when they hear reports of possible sightings anywhere near schools,” Superintendent Elizabeth Robison said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. Authorities are looking for Eric Frein, 31, who’s charged with

opening fire outside the Blooming Grove state police barracks on Sept. 12, killing a trooper and seriously wounding another. The suspect has been described as a self-taught survivalist and expert marksman who hates law enforcement. Police had spend weeks searching for Frein in the woods around his parents’ home in Canadensis, but shifted their primary search area about 5 miles to the southwest after a woman out for a walk Friday night reported seeing a rifle-toting man with a mud-covered face near Pocono Mountain East High School. Police said they believe the man was Frein. On Monday afternoon, an officer with Pocono Mountain Regional Police spotted a man dressed in green in the woods near the Swiftwater post office, less than a half-mile from the school. That prompted an intense police search as students were heading home for the day — a potentially volatile situation that had some parents fuming. With classes canceled Tuesday, state police and the FBI searched the school district’s Swiftwater campus, clearing and securing the high, junior high and elementary schools. “Having law enforcement take

the time to go through our schools to make sure they are secure is very reassuring to me and should also be reassuring to the parents of our students,” Robison said. With Frein still on the loose, though, some residents aren’t sure police are up to the task. Hubert Harvey, 70, said he’s surprised Frein hasn’t been caught by now and believes authorities are “just wasting money and time” by sending legions of officers into the woods day after day. “They’re going about it the wrong way,” he said. “What they need is a couple of good guys who can track and a couple dogs and they will find him.” James Fish, 72, of Swiftwater, is skeptical that Frein had even been spotted in the area. “Obviously he’s a skilled survivor,” he said. “He’s going to walk out so some lady can see him? That’s ridiculous.” Nevertheless, Fish said his wife was worried and upset. He reminded her that Frein is believed to be targeting law enforcement and “average citizens aren’t too much at risk.” The manhunt is now concentrated along the heavily trafficked Route 611 corridor in the heart of the Poconos. Major attractions and businesses in the vicin-

ity include Mount Airy Casino Resort and pharmaceutical company Sanofi Pasteur, where Frein worked briefly. On Tuesday, police with dogs were seen searching a clothing collection bin across the street

from a popular restaurant. Up the road, 15-year-old Kat Nordstrom and her friend Sam Ryan, 16, were at Dunkin’ Donuts at a time when they’d normally be in class. Frein was the talk of the high

school Monday, with some students joking about the situation “because they think nothing is going to happen,” Nordstrom said. But one of her teachers told her that “they shouldn’t have let you come,” she said.

FBI: 3 Denver girls may have tried to join jihadis By SADIE GURMAN Associated Press

DENVER — The FBI in Denver says it is investigating the possibility that three girls from the Denver area were trying to travel to Syria to join Islamic State extremists. An FBI spokeswoman says agents helped bring the girls back to Denver after FBI agents stopped them in Germany. Spokeswoman Su-

zie Payne says they are safe and reunited with their families. She didn’t give the identity of the girls or any other details. The announcement comes one month after 19-year-old Shannon Conley of Denver pleaded guilty to charges that she conspired to help militants in Syria. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Denver declined to comment on the latest cases.

North Korea frees US man; 2 still detained

Around the World Manufacturers see spike in demand for personal protective gear in light of US Ebola fears BALTIMORE — Manufacturers and distributors of impermeable gowns and full-body suits meant to protect medical workers from Ebola are scrambling to keep up with a surge of new orders from U.S. hospitals, with at least one doubling its staff and still facing a weekslong backlog. Many hospitals say they already have the proper equipment in place but are ordering more supplies to prepare for a possible new case of Ebola. This gear is made of material that does not absorb fluids and is crucial to preventing the spread of the virus, which has infected thousands across West Africa, many of whom caught the disease while caring for those infected. Ebola is transmitted through direct contact, through cuts or mucous membranes, with bodily fluids such as blood, vomit and feces, and proper protective equipment helps prevent doctors and nurses from accidentally getting any fluids in their eyes, nose or mouth. Hospitals are paying close attention to the type of protective gear they stock after two nurses contracted Ebola earlier this month while caring for a Liberian man dying of the disease at a Dallas hospital. The nurses were exposed to the disease during what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has called a “breach in protocol” at the hospital. But some medical professionals criticized the CDC for distributing guidelines that do not require medical staff caring for infected patients to don full-body suits or wear multiple layers of gloves. The CDC announced new guidelines Monday night calling in part for health workers caring for Ebola patients to wear face shields, hoods, boot covers and other garb that leave no part of the body exposed. Last week the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas ordered 30 cases of impermeable isolation gowns, with 50 gowns per case to add to their existing 10case cache. The Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London, Connecticut recently placed a new order for onepiece full-coverage suits, even though the hospital already has plenty on hand.

WASHINGTON — North Korea’s reclusive government abruptly freed an American man Tuesday, nearly six months after he was arrested on charges of leaving a Bible in a nightclub, but Pyongyang refused to hand over two other U.S. citizens who are still being held. There was no immediate explanation for the release of Jeffrey Fowle, who was quickly whisked to the U.S. territory of Guam before heading back to his wife and three children in Miamisburg, Ohio. Relations between Washington and Pyongyang, never warm, are at a particularly low point, and the U.S. has sought unsuccessfully for months to send a high-level representative to North Korea to negotiate acquittals for all three men. Fowle’s wife, Tatyana, “screamed when I told her,” said family attorney Timothy Tepe, who received a call from the State Department with word of the release. Tepe said Fowle himself called his wife soon afterward. “She is ecstatic, excited, use whatever word you want,” Tepe said. State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said Fowle was seen by doctors and appeared to be in good medi-

‘She is ecstatic, excited, use whatever word you want.’ — Timothy Tepe, Flowle family attorney cal health. She declined to give more details about his release except to thank the government of Sweden, which has an embassy in Pyongyang, for its “tireless efforts.” Harf would not say whether any American officials had intervened directly with the North Koreans. “We’ll let the North Koreans speak for themselves about why did they decide to do this,” Harf said. “But we are pleased that he was able to leave, and urge the immediate release of the other two.” Fowle was flown out of North Korea on a U.S. military jet which was spotted at Pyongyang’s international airport Tuesday by two Associated Press journalists. There was no immediate comment from the government of North Korean leader Kim Jung Un. The United States has no diplomatic relations with North Korea and strongly warns American citizens against traveling to the country. Fowle, 56, arrived there on April 29 and was arrested in May for leaving a Bible at the

WASHINGTON — Two weeks before Election Day, most of the nation’s likely voters now expect the Republican Party to take control of the U.S. Senate, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. And by a growing margin, they say that’s the outcome they’d like to see. But the survey suggests many will cringe when they cast those ballots. Most likely voters have a negative impression of the Republican Party, and 7 in 10 are dissatisfied by its leaders in Congress. The Democrats win few accolades themselves. Impressions of the party among likely voters have grown more negative in the past month. In fact, Democrats are more trusted than the GOP on just two of nine top issues, the poll showed. The economy remains the top issue for likely voters — 91 percent call it “extremely” or “very” important. And the GOP has increased its advantage as the party more trusted to handle the issue to a margin of 39 percent to 31 percent. With control of the Senate at stake, both parties say they are relying on robust voter-turnout operations — and monster campaign spending — to lift their candidates in the final days. But the poll suggests any appeals they’ve made so far haven’t done much to boost turnout among those already registered. —­The Associated Press

nightclub. Christian evangelism is considered a crime in North Korea. He was awaiting trial — the only one of the three Americans held by Pyongyang who had not been convicted of charges. The two others — Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller — were each sentenced to years in North Korean prisons after court trials that lasted no more than 90 minutes. The three Americans entered North Korea separately. In interviews last month with the AP, all three said they believed the only solution to their situation was for a U.S. representative to come and make a direct appeal. Pyongyang had refused that as recently as last month. The timing of the release was especially curious, given an editorial published Tuesday by North Korea’s state run-Rodong Sinmun newspaper, which described relations with the U.S. at “the lowest ebb” since a 1994 diplomatic agreement between the two nations. Tuesday marked the 20th anniversary of that protocol, which froze

Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program in return for the provision of nuclear power reactors and the eventual normalization of ties with the United States. The protocol has since unraveled. Subsequent aid-for-disarmament negotiations on the North’s nuclear program, involving the U.S., North Korea, South Korea, Japan, China and Russia have been stalled since 2008. The newspaper editorial Tuesday spoke of a “hostile policy” of the U.S. and said Washington should not oppose North Korea’s nuclear deterrence. Analysts say North Korea has previously used detained Americans as leverage in its standoff with the U.S., a contention that Pyongyang denies. Washington, too, has floated the possibility of a diplomatic opening in ties between the two countries should North Korea free the detainees. Miller, 24, was convicted just six weeks ago of entering North Korea illegally to commit espionage and sentenced to six years of hard labor. North Korea’s Supreme Court said he tore up his tourist visa at Pyongyang’s airport upon arrival on April 10 and admitted to the “wild ambition” of experiencing prison life so that he could secretly investigate North Korea’s human rights situation.

Pistorius given 5-year prison sentence Double amputee Olympic runner finally hears result for killing girlfriend after months-long trial CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA Associated Press

PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) — Oscar Pistorius was taken away in a police van with barred windows Tuesday to start serving a five-year prison sentence for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Delivering her sentence, Judge Thokozile Masipa cited the “gross negligence” the double-amputee Olympic runner showed when he shot Steenkamp multiple times through a toilet cubicle door in his home. Pistorius, who cried and retched during his murder trial, was unemotional as he stood to hear his sentence. His prison term begins immediately and he was led by police down a flight of stairs to holding cells before leaving the courthouse in the armored vehicle. The world-famous runner later arrived at the nearby Kgosi Mampuru II prison in the South African capital,

a facility that has had problems with violence and overcrowding and where during the years of apartheid death row inmates were executed before capital punishment was outlawed with the advent of democracy. Despite the prison’s reported problems, authorities have said Pistorius would be held away from the general prison population because of his disability and high profile — possibly in a hospital wing or a high-security section. Pistorius could be released after 10 months to serve the remainder under house arrest, according to legal experts. Masipa last month convicted Pistorius of culpable homicide, or negligent killing, but acquitted him of murder after he testified he mistook Steenkamp for a nighttime intruder. Steenkamp’s parents were in court to hear the sentence and the dead model’s mother, June, said justice had been done. A close friend of Steenkamp, Gina Myers, said: “I really don’t think

any of us will heal anytime soon ... there will always be questions.” Pistorius’ uncle, Arnold Pistorius, appealed to reporters to give the family privacy after what he called “20 months of relentless public trial.” He criticized prosecutors for pursuing a premeditated murder charge against Pistorius, and said “they decided to inflict as much collateral damage as they could.” He said Pistorius’ family accepted the sentence. “Oscar will embrace this opportunity to pay back to society,” Arnold Pistorius said. Judge Masipa earlier described the sentencing as a balancing act between retribution and clemency. “I am of the view that a non-custodial sentence would send a wrong message to the community,” Masipa said, taking just over an hour to summarize parts of the case and explain why she reached her decision. “On the other hand, a long sentence would not

be appropriate either as it would lack the element of mercy.” Masipa asked Pistorius to stand as she delivered the sentence, and he faced her with his hands clasped in front of him. Pistorius was then led away, stopping briefly to grip the hands of his uncle and other family members as he headed to prison. Prosecutors said they are considering whether to appeal the sentence, where Pistorius, 27, could serve less than a year in jail for killing his 29-year-old girlfriend. They have 14 days to apply for permission to appeal. Nathi Mncube, the prosecution spokesman, said his office was disappointed in the culpable homicide conviction and had not yet decided whether to appeal. He said that there was an “appetite” to appeal but prosecutors would review their options. “We are satisfied with the fact that he will be serving some time in prison,” Mncube said.

Masipa had a wide range of options available to her because South Africa does not have a minimum sentence for culpable homicide, which is comparable to manslaughter. Pistorius, a onceinspiring athlete, known as the Blade Runner because he competed on carbon-fiber blades, was the first amputee to run at the Olympics in 2012. He had faced up to 15 years in jail. He also could have received a completely suspended sentence or house arrest. The sentence raised questions over if Pistorius, a multiple Paralympic champion, would ever return to the career that made him famous. The International Paralympic Committee said he would not be eligible to run during his five-year sentence, ruling him out of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Paralympics. Pistorius must serve one-sixth of his sentence in prison — 10 months — before he is eligible to be moved to house arrest, said Marius du Toit, a legal analyst and criminal defense lawyer.

Giants silence Royals in World Series opener San Fran ends Kansas City’s perfect postseason BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants put a sudden stop to the Kansas City Royals’ perfect postseason roll. Bumgarner pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning, Hunter Pence homered early and the Giants showed off their October poise, shutting down the Royals 7-1 Tuesday night in the World Series opener. “Our team is concentrating on what we’re doing, not what the Royals are doing,” Bumgarner said. From the get-go, the Giants simply did everything right to win their seventh straight World Series game. There’s a reason Bumgarner and this bunch in black and orange are trying for their third title in five years. “I can’t say I’m surprised by these guys,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. The Royals, meanwhile, looked nothing like the fresh team that had become baseball’s darlings by starting the playoffs with eight wins in a row — back on the field after a five-day layoff, their pitching, hitting and fielding all deserted them. The fates seemed to change from the very first batter, in AP Photo/The Sacramento Bee, Jose Luis Villegas fact.

Trio of late goals give Bruins win BOSTON (AP) — Seth Griffith, Gregory Campbell and David Krejci scored in the third period, leading the Boston Bruins to a 5-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. Brad Marchand and Torey Krug each had a power-play goal for Boston, which has at least four goals in each of their last three games after totaling just seven goals in their first five. Griffith’s tying score was his first career NHL goal. After twice squandering one-goal leads and overcoming a late deficit themselves, the Bruins took the lead for good when Campbell tipped a pass from Daniel Paille through the legs of goaltender Antti Niemi with 9:18 left. Patrice Bergeron drew a double-minor penalty with 4:09 remaining, but the Bruins were able to hold off the Sharks and Krejci added an empty-netter with 24.5 seconds to go. Logan Couture had two goals and Joe Thornton scored against his former team as San Jose finished its East Coast road trip at 2-2-1. Niemi made 28 saves.

Tuukka Rask made 30 saves for Boston. BLACKHAWKS 4, FLYERS 0 CHICAGO (AP) — Antti Raanta made 32 saves for Chicago in his first start of the season, and Patrick Kane scored two powerplay goals. Brandon Saad, Bryan Bickell and Kane scored in a flurry late in the first period. Raanta was sharp while stepping in for Corey Crawford, who is day to day with an upper-body injury. It was Raanta’s second career shutout. Among Raanta’s best saves were two point-blank stops on Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux and one on Matt Read late in the second period.

then backed off as the ball fell for a single. It would’ve taken a near miracle to catch it, but that’s the kind of play the Royals had been making on a routine basis. Moments later, Pence’s tworun homer highlighted a threerun burst in the first inning against James Shields. Nicknamed “Big Game James,” he once again failed to live up to that billing and left in the fourth when the Giants made it 5-0. “It just wasn’t my night tonight,” Shields said. By then, Royals fans who had waited since 1985 for the Series to return to town had gone silent. Or, worse, they were booing while small “Let’s go, Giants!” chants echoed through Kauffman Stadium. Just like that, what many figured would be a tight matchup had turned into a mismatch. And it was a good omen for the Giants — the Game 1 winner has won 15 of the last 17 World Series. The Royals will try to get even in Game 2 on Wednesday night when rookie Yordano Ventura starts against veteran Jake Peavy. “We didn’t expect to come in here and sweep the San Francisco Giants,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. “We knew that this was a series that was going to go deep. We know how tough they are.” Bumgarner added to his sparkling World Series resume,

improving to 3-0 and extending his scoreless streak to 21 innings before Salvador Perez homered with two outs in the seventh. “I would tell you I wasn’t thinking about it, but you know,” Bumgarner said. “There’s no way around it. You know. There’s so much talk about it. Obviously, a World Series game is not something you tend to forget.” The 25-year-old called MadBum by his teammates was in trouble only once. Down 3-0 in the third, the Royals loaded the bases with a two-out walk and cleanup man Eric Hosmer stepped to the plate, but grounded out on the first pitch. Bumgarner went on to stretch his road postseason scoreless streak to a record 32 2-3 innings as the Giants cruised. He pitched three-hit ball for seven innings, struck out five and walked one. “He’s special. He’s got that flair for the spectacular,” Pence said. “He never makes it bigger than it is. He just gets out there and competes.” Michael Morse, getting to play as the designated hitter in the AL park, had an RBI single that finished Shields, and reliever Danny Duffy walked Blanco with the bases loaded. Rookie Joe Panik hit an RBI triple that bounced past usually reliable right fielder Nori Aoki in the seventh and scored on a single by October force Pablo Sandoval.

A hearing on Ray Rice’s appeal of his indefinite suspension will be held Nov. 5 and 6, two people familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The people spoke with The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because details of the hearing have not been made public.

Rice was suspended indefinitely Sept. 8 for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy after a video of Rice hitting his then-fiancee in an elevator was released publicly. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell originally had suspended Rice for two games. Once the video became public, the Baltimore Ravens cut the star running back, and the league banned him indefinitely.

The league considered the video to be new evidence, giving Goodell the authority to further suspend Rice. The players’ union is appealing Rice’s suspension, saying Rice should not be punished twice. A neutral arbiter is expected to decide whether Goodell should testify. The arbiter had not yet made that decision as of Tuesday afternoon, the sources

Champions League teams score 40 goals NESHA STARCEVIC AP Sports Writer

The Champions League returned on Tuesday with a 40goal bonanza. Bayern Munich beat Roma 7-1 for its biggest victory on the road, and Luiz Adriano scored five times to lead Shakhtar Donetsk to a 7-0 victory at BATE Borisov. On a record-busting night, Chelsea posted a 6-0 win over Maribor, but Manchester City remained without a victory in three matches after wasting a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at CSKA Moscow. Schalke also squandered a two-goal lead before scoring a controversial penalty in stoppage time to edge 10-man Sporting 4-3, and Paris SaintGermain edged APOEL 1-0 in Cyprus. Neymar and Lionel Messi scored in Barcelona’s 3-1 win over Ajax. Messi’s 69th career goal in Europe’s top-tier competition moved him within two of Raul Gonzalez’s record. Adriano’s five-goal performance in Belarus —with two

goals from the penalty spot — equaled Messi’s five against Bayer Leverkusen in 2012. Adriano is the first player to manage four goals in the first half, doing so in a record span of 17 minutes. With a late penalty, he also matched Messi’s mark. Shakhtar, which has been forced from its home in Donetsk because of fighting between Ukrainian government troops and pro-Russian rebels, matched the biggest away victory in the history of the Champions League. Olympique Marseille also won 7-0 at MSK Zilina in 2010. The biggest Champions League victory came in 2007, when Liverpool routed Besiktas 8-0. With eight more matches to be played Wednesday, the record of 63 goals for a match day, set on the opening day of the 2000-01 season, could be broken. Five-time champion Bayern, which won the title in 2013, established itself as one of the favorites this season with an

overwhelming performance in Rome, with Arjen Robben scoring twice. “This is a fluke,” Bayern coach Josep Guardiola said. “It’s not normal to win 7-1.” But Bayern is starting to look like the Barcelona squad that Guardiola coached to two Champions League titles. The Spaniard took over Bayern last season and watched his club lose 5-0 on aggregate to Real Madrid in the semifinals. “Last season we had the legs but not the mindset,” Guardiola said. “We needed to decide things a split-second quicker and now we’re doing that.” Messi started an outstanding performance at Camp Nou by setting up Neymar in the seventh minute. Messi then scored in the 24th. “I am pleased with our game, in the first half we were by far the better side. We created a lot of chances and could have scored two more goals,” Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. “We could have pressed more in the second half. You have to finish out the match.”

Eden Hazard scored twice and Didier Drogba had his first goal since returning to Chelsea in the victory over Maribor. Drogba’s two-month search for a goal ended in the first half shortly after replacing Loic Remy, who injured his groin while netting Chelsea’s opener in the 13th minute. But Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho must now cope with Drogba as his only fit striker for Sunday’s Premier League match at Manchester United, with Remy joining Diego Costa on the sidelines. “We don’t cry on injuries, it is our philosophy,” Mourinho said. “One injury means an opportunity for somebody else.” Chelsea remains two points ahead of Schalke, which clinched its victory over Sporting Lisbon in stoppage time when Eric Choupo-Moting converted a penalty. Adrien Silva, who had brought Sporting back from a two-goal deficit, was penalized for a hand ball — although television replays clearly showed the ball had bounced off his chest.

Sports Briefs Newman not penalized for postrace deal CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — NASCAR decided Tuesday not to penalize Ryan Newman after his car failed inspection following the race at Talladega. The Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet was found to be too low in the rear on both sides of the car after Sunday’s race. NASCAR brought it back to North Carolina for a further inspection and concluded that damage during the race was to blame. “I was happy with the fact NASCAR took the time to take the car back to the tech center and analyze everything,” Newman said during an appearance at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “In the end, they saw that the damage from being hit from behind was enough to knock the back of the car enough down to take it out of its (clearance) window.” Newman said his car was damaged on the final restart of the race when he was hit by Matt Kenseth as the drivers furiously charged for position. Had NASCAR decided to penalize Newman, he likely would have been docked 15 points in the standings. Newman had already moved on to the third round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship and had a 27-point lead over the first driver eliminated at Talladega.

Durant anxious to heal from broken foot OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Thunder forward Kevin Durant says he has been antsy since finding out he will miss the early part of the season with a broken bone in his right foot. The reigning MVP spoke to the media Tuesday for the first time since the injury. He had surgery on Oct. 16 and will be re-evaluated in about five weeks. He rolled into the media session on a scooter with the lower half of his right leg in a cast. Durant says he’s never had surgery, so he doesn’t know how he will respond to it, but he won’t rush his return.

Soldotna man arrested for domestic assault . . . Guard By DAN BALMER Peninsula Clarion

A Soldotna man is in jail after Alaska State Troopers allege he assaulted his wife repeatedly over the course of several days last week and took her phone away so she couldn’t call for help. Last Thursday, troopers responded to the report of an assault at a residence off the Kenai Spur Highway. A woman with serious injuries to her face and hip told police her husband, Charles Brady, 47, pushed her down a hallway on Oct. 10 and assaulted her again last Wednesday after she already received medical treatment for a broken hip, according to the police affidavit.

When troopers arrived Thursday, Brady had left the area but was picked up by Soldotna Police a couple hours later. The report states Brady appeared intoxicated and provided a Breathalyzer test of .166. Brady told police he didn’t hurt his wife and loved her. Central Emergency Services took the woman to Central Peninsula Hospital for treatment for a fractured hip, fractured orbital socket and swollen cheek. After her first hospital visit the day after the initial assault, the woman started to use a walker to get around the house.

had taken in investigating. Parnell said his chief of staff went to the FBI when he heard about specific conduct in 2010, and the federal agency found no basis for criminal charges. The governor said his review had the same end result as an inquiry requested by U.S. Sen. Mark Begich that determined complaints appeared to have been followed properly. Begich, a Democrat seeking re-election, has taken issue with that characterization, saying investigations that he and Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski requested were limited in their scope and effectiveness because only probes conducted at the request of the state can compel Guard members to be interviewed. Parnell requested in February that the National Guard Bureau investigate after he said he received examples of how the command structure was failing Guard members. The bureau’s Office of Complex Investigations compiled a scathing report released in September that led to Katkus’ resignation and a shake-up

within the Guard. Parnell, now in a tough reelection fight, said his motivation was in restoring confidence within the Guard. If it was about the election, he wouldn’t have necessarily released the report when he did, he said. The situation certainly “has damaged re-election campaign efforts, there’s no question about that,” he said. Parnell, who critics say didn’t act fast enough on the problems within the guard, has appointed a selection team to review the credentials of 27 applicants — including Bridges — to be the new adjutant general. The panel will send names of finalists to Parnell, who will conduct final interviews. Parnell’s election opponent, independent candidate Bill Walker, told KTVA that the governor’s lack of leadership is evident in the Guard situation. Walker said Parnell should have hired an independent investigator as soon as allegations were brought forward years ago. Media organizations have been denied records from Parnell’s office showing how he handled the situation. Alaska Public Media and the Alaska Dispatch News have sued Parnell to obtain the records.

it was a tactic used on Senate candidates nationwide. Still, he said, he supports the law. “When I ran for office, the number that was out there was 34 percent of Alaskans who tried to get an individual policy were denied,” he said. “Today, no one gets denied. Is it a perfect bill? No. Is there work to be done? Absolutely. But, it will not be repealed. People who think it will get repealed are dreaming. The law is in place, what are we going to do to fix it?” Begich criticized Gov. Sean Parnell’s policies several times and on Obamacare, he said Parnell’s refusal to accept expanded Medicaid funding was hurting the state. “That’s an opportunity for us, for 40,000 Alaskans to be covered,” he said. Libertarian candidate Mark Fish said he was running to represent Alaskans whose voices were not being heard, and that trend has continued on the campaign trail, he said. “I want to talk about free and fair elections and getting into the debates,” Fish said during his closing remarks. “I don’t know if the folks know it, but every televised debate, I’ve been shut out of ... it’s an injustice to all you folks and you should be outraged about it.” Each candidate was asked why they had decided to run under the party platform’s they’d chosen.

believed in the free will of the individual. “An individual has a right to their life, their will and their property and the government’s job is to ensure those rights,” he said. “We got two other parties represented (here) that do share some of those values, but what they’re doing is they’re not acting on some of those values.” Sullivan had a similar response. “I’m running as a Republican because I believe in policies of less government and more freedom,” he said. Begich said being an Alaskan Democrat was very different than being a Democrat in other parts of the country. “I’m pro-guns, pro-oil and gas development, I have libertarian streaks when it comes to the Patriot Act, which I don’t support,” he said. “I supported a piece of legislation that Rand Paul is doing on auditing the feds, but also I support public education ... I believe we have an obligation as a community to make sure people have opportunities to rise above and give them opportunities for the future.” On Alaska’s fisheries, Sullivan said Begich had been part of the problem with inaction on fisheries issues that could negatively affect Alaskans, including a moratorium, set to expire soon, on an EPA regulation on discharge permits for commercial vessels. Without the moratorium, commercial and charter fishing vessels could be required to get permits for discharges under the Clean Water Act. Begich said the moratorium

would be extended for at least a year and possibly three. “The vessel discharge bill is a priority ... but I want a permanent fix for this. I will get this done, as we have every single year to keep the EPA off the backs of our fishermen, our shippers, our freight carriers, all of them because it’s an outrageous regulation.” Sullivan said the issue needed action. “I would start moving on things, I wouldn’t just be talking about things,” he said. “This EPA moratorium, you know Senator Begich and others have been talking about this for years. Well, two months out, our small fishermen are going to get nailed with this new EPA regulation ... these are the kinds of things we need action (on). Not bills, not talk, action to take care of our communities.” Fish said, if elected, he would focus on defending the borders of the fisheries. “I’m not sure where the fish are going, but I know in the middle of the Bering Sea, there’s not a lot of enforcement. With foreign entities coming in, I’m concerned about the piracy of Alaska’s resources by ... other nations.” Sullivan and Begich did agree on a few things, one being a vote against Ballot Proposition 2, which would legalize recreational marijuana use in the state. Fish said he supported the proposition, primarily because it was already a multi-million dollar industry in the state. But Begich and Sullivan said they could not support an initia-

tive that could lead to their children being enticed into experimenting with the drug. “I also think other states that have now passed this, such as Washington and Colorado, they’re now admitting this is some kind of experiment. They don’t know how this is going to turn out,” Sullivan said. “I don’t want to experiment on our kids.” On ISIS and Ebola, each candidate said the federal government did not seem to have a comprehensive strategy for handling the threats. Begich said he didn’t agree with President Obama’s idea to fund the rebels, while Fish said the situation in the Middle East was becoming untenable due to the action of several previous presidential administrations. “It has gotten so ridiculous now that they’re bombing our own equipment while dropping humanitarian supplies to the people we’re fighting,” he said. “This is nuts, let’s stop it.” Sullivan said he considered the threats to be a sign of America’s weakened standing in the world. “In my view weakness is provocative and that’s why there are so many crises in the world,” he said. “Whether it’s Russia, whether it’s ISIS, whether it’s Ebola, whether it’s the border, to me, we need to have that kind of engaged leadership ... I’ll be ready from day one to help address what is really a dangerous world out there.”

said board member Penny Vadla. Educators spend a shorter amount of time teaching in rural areas, she said. Students need stability to learn. A factor in their exodus is administrative frustrations stemming from lack of funding and support within the community, Atwater said. Micciche asked the school board if there was a way to fund education that evenly affects the rural populations. No one from the board had a quick answer. “To squeeze funds out of

legislators, I have to give them a program that has results,” Micciche said. “This is not, ‘What Peter said,’ this is what I am hearing in Juneau.” While offering competitive salaries may keep teachers and administrators in one place, a high paid educator does not make a strong student, Micciche said. It’s about funding the right programs, he said. There needs to be a connection between funds and results, Micciche said. “The state should not have this struggle every year in Ju-

neau for determining what is the adequate level of funding,” Micciche said. With the promise of large, economy boosting projects that will be creating jobs in Alaska in the next few years, the students going through the state’s education system need to be competitive enough to ensure they will be the ones filling those positions, Micciche said.

Dan Sullivan: “I think this is an issue that is symbolic of the broadest issues that I’m seeing on the campaign, which is federal overreach and federal delay in federal agencies that are not partners with us. ... I think that we need to roll back regulations. I think that we need to have control over federal agencies and I think that as a U.S. Senator, I’m certainly going to be focused on that.” Mark Begich: “The corps of engineers, as you know the local community has been dealing with this for quite some time, the corps of engineers... they believed that there was a technical reason why they could not take that money and make that project happen. Mayor (Pat) Porter came to my office not long ago, I made sure she had a meeting with the corps of engineers to change that. There’s some movement now by the corps of engineers to make sure that money can be used to start dealing with this bluff erosion and change that.”

each dime went, but I can tell you there’s a lot of research going on both at the state and federal level, to understand ... the status of our fisheries. But, sitting there and saying we’re not spending the money right, I think is an incorrect and general statement.” Mark Fish: “Money is always a problem. It’s always going to be a problem for government and accountability is always going to be a problem. You need people on it all the time. What’s not being taken into account here is ... are we basing our take on historical resources that have been depleted through increasing predation? I don’t know, I think that’s something that (should be studied).” Currently there is an antisetnet initiative moving forward in the state of Alaska. Do you feel the initiative process should have a role in resource management and allocation? Mark Fish: “Initiative is not a good way to solve the complex issues. What we need to do is elect honest people into government, that look out to the common interest of all Alaskans in this battle. You do that with an initiative and it’s a knee-jerk reaction that never turns out good. So, no, not for resource management, it should never be used.” Mark Begich: “I know there’s been back-and-forth with the courts on this and I understand now that it’s going to be on the 2016 ballot. I’m not sure (if) utilizing initiatives for resource management is the best way, but it’s allowed and the courts have allowed them to move that forward. Fisheries policy is very complex. An initiative process puts all kinds of things on the ballot and you have to deal with them and the legislative process after they pass, because usually those initiatives are not very clear.” Dan Sullivan: “My view is similar, in that the best way to manage for abundance, which we all want ... is to do it through sound science and working together.”

A tremendous amount of federal dollars have gone into research, particularly for salmon. On the Kenai Peninsula, king salmon returns continue to dwindle. Where has all the money gone and where is the accountability of these funds? Dan Sullivan: “I don’t know exactly where the money has gone, in terms of federal money. I’m certainly going to be somebody who is focused on wasteful spending, but what we need to do as a state and federal government is work on the science of what’s going on with their fisheries. We have to work on managing for abundance but this issue is both a state and federal issue.” Mark Begich: “There are a couple of pieces to the equation. I would not just limit it to salmon, we have other issues, as we know on the Peninsula, here in this region with halibut — Rashah McChesney and what’s going on with bycatch, and the impact it’s havFind more at www.peninsuing on our charter fisheries also.

Grannie Annie

North Nikiski Alaska The past 10 years ob and I have had a hard time hearing each other for the past ten years and as the years go by it gets more interesting and funny. The topper about two years ago when we were traveling to Kenai in the fall of the year. I said to him - “Sure is pretty out” He whipped his head around and retorted with a surprised look on his face- “Why do you want to go there?” When I told him what I said - we both had a great laugh all the way to Kenai. Another memorable time, we were visiting Susan and Porter when they lived in Fairbanks. One morning, Bob and Porters dad, Bobby was setting on the couch in the front room. Eva was fixing coffee for Bobby. In her kind sweet voice she said “ Bobby, do you want sugar in your coffee?” With a startled look on his face he turned to Bob and said. “Spaghetti sauce! Why would I want spaghetti sauce in my coffee?” Good memories of two dear people. Our dad McClure was forever the tease and he used words to try and confuse you with his requests. Daughter Gail remembers when dad (grandpa) was setting at the breakfast table teasing mom (grandma) ordered “2 lookin’ at ya - 2 slabs and a slice with redeye gravy and a cuppa’ java. Translation - 2 eggs sunny side up, 2 pieces of toast, a slice of ham with red pan gravy and a cup of coffee. Mom with a look of disgust, would not ask him to clear up his request. He would smirk and wait to see what she put on his plate. He had many variations such as “2 hen fruit, a squeal, two bombs and a scoop of glue.” Translation. 2 eggs, sausage, 2 biscuits with gravy. Mom usually got it right. If she did not he ate it anyway! Oatmeal was oats or horse fodder, He called my dumplings, cannon balls - rightly so! Fun memories. When grandson Grey was about 5 yrs old, Bob was building him a long awaited tree house. Grey was right behind Bob at all times with his own nail apron full of nails, a small square and a hammer with a short handle that Bob sawed off for the little carpenter. Sometimes in the way and almost all the time saying “Why Bob?” “How come Bob?” Bob had climbed the little hill for the thousandth time from where he positioned the tree house one side with a tree holding it. Grey was right at his heels. He was forever wanting to please Bob and trying to guess what Bob’s every move was. Bob stopped to “ponder” a very cool word around our place, Grey looked at Bob in total sincerity and said, “I was reading your mind Bob - but I lost it”! We use pondering and losing our minds a lot these days!

ersatile pork tenderloin may be grilled, roasted, sautéed or braised for a meal that is just as welcome at the weeknight supper table, as it is for special occasion dinners. Because of pork’s mild flavor, it is particularly suited to a variety of preparations, particularly those that include herbs and spices, marinades and various sauces. Taking this into account, the Roasted Herb-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with MarmaladeMustard Sauce recipe here embraces all of those enhancements, first with a wet rub marinade, consisting of olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, sage and allspice, then by a basting sauce comprised of orange marmalade, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce and fresh grated ginger. After treatment such as this, you’ll want to pair the pork with a less assertive side dish, like roasted butternut squash. Prized for its fine-textured flesh, sweet, nutty taste and bold orange color, butternut squash is the most popular of all the winter squashes. Although butternut squash is available all year long, it is actually in

season right now, making this the optimal time for buying it. So, besides eating roasted butternut squash as is, look for ways to use it, both savory and sweet – in things from soups and stuffing’s, to cakes, pies, muffins and more.

Good together, especially in autumn, herb-rubbed pork tenderloin and roasted butternut squash.

Fully roasted and free of its skin, butternut squash may be eaten as is, or mashed for use in a wide range of both savory and sweet dishes. (The skin of fully roasted butternut squash should peel away easily.) And, don’t throw away the squash seeds – they can be roasted and eaten as a snack.

Simple Baked Butternut Squash

Marinated in an herb-infused wet rub, roasted pork tenderloin is deliciously moist and flavorful.

Roasted Herb-Rubbed PorkTenderloin with Marmalade-Mustard Sauce 4 cloves garlic, minced ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme, or 2 teaspoons dried 2 tablespoons minced fresh sage, or 2 teaspoons dried 1 teaspoon ground allspice 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 (1½- 2-pound) pork tenderloin ¾ cup orange marmalade 1 3 / cup Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger Salt and pepper, to taste For the herb rub: in a small mixing bowl, combine garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, sage and allspice with olive oil, stirring well to blend. Rub and pat mixture all over tenderloin. Wrap tenderloin tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours, or overnight. For the marmalade-mustard sauce: combine marmalade, mustard, Worcestershire and ginger in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, adding salt and pepper, to taste. Remove wrap from

tenderloin and place meat on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven, basting frequently with the marmalade mixture, until pork reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees, or to desired doneness (see note below)*. Remove from oven, brushing with accumulated pan juices, then allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Makes 4 servings. *Kitchen Ade Note: The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has determined that it is safe to cook cuts of pork to 145 degrees with a three minute rest time, which raises the internal temperature to 160 degrees, the temperature at which pathogens are destroyed. Do not skip the rest time, as this is the time it takes for the pork to reach its final temperature after it has been removed from the grill, oven or other heat source. As a guide, a 2-pound pork tenderloin, roasted at 350 degrees, will reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees in 20 to 27 minutes, according to the National Pork Board, www. porkbeinspired.com.

Go For the Food: Bryant’s barbecue in Kansas City BY BETH J. HARPAZ AP Travel Editor

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — I learned an important lesson from a food blogger in Kansas City: Talking about barbecue in these parts may involve “fightin’ words.” Case in point: When I mentioned on Facebook that I was heading to Kansas City, one friend sent me to Arthur Bryant’s barbecue restaurant, quoting Calvin Trillin’s famous line that Bryant’s was possibly “the single best restaurant in the world.” But another friend declared Bryant’s sauce “gross.” Meanwhile, the blogger, Mary Bloch, along with a local AP Photo/Beth J. Harpaz) acquaintance, confirmed that This Sept. 22, photo shows a plate of food at Arthur Bryant’s, Bryant’s has earned its kudos the legendary barbecue restaurant in Kansas City, Mo. across the decades and remains

one of the best barbecue places in town. But both felt that its top-dog status has been eclipsed by others, including Oklahoma Joe’s, Fiorella’s Jack Stack, Danny Edwards and Gates. But what do I know about barbecue? I’m a tourist from New York, where fightin’ words are reserved for bagels, and barbecue is often disappointing. I was with my sister on our first-ever visit to Kansas City — which included classic tourist stops like the Nelson-Atkins Museum and Blue Room jazz club — so we opted for the oldschool legend and headed to Bryant’s. To further prove my ignorance about the Kansas City barbecue scene, I even called ahead for reservations. I have great respect for the person C

who answered and didn’t hang up laughing. Instead he paused and said, politely, “We accept walk-ins.” They sure do. As we drove nearer, I wondered if we were lost. There wasn’t much nearby and the brick building it’s in looks like a forgotten warehouse. We stepped inside and realized why they don’t take reservations: It’s one room, cafeteria-style, with a line and counter in the back where you order, and a few tables scattered in front. But I like holes in the wall as much as I like icons. And Bryant’s is “both the icon and the hole in the wall,” said Bloch, who writes the AroundtheBlockKC.com food blog and the Kansas City Star Restaurant Guide.

Either way, it was obvious that other diners were loving their food, chowing down and licking their chops over plates piled high with meat. We might not have ordered the turkey sandwich, but a tableful of construction workers raved about it. We also ordered a pound of mixed meat — ham, brisket and ribs — plus coleslaw, potato salad and beans. Call us ignorant New Yorkers, but we absolutely loved it — except for the stack of white bread on the side, which we ignored. It was also way too much food, so we saved the leftovers for a nextday picnic. It was even yummy cold. Bloch later told me that Bryant’s is the undisputed “grandSee FOOD, page B-2

This July 29 photo shows Arthur Bryant’s, the legendary barbecue restaurant in Kansas City, Mo., on the day President Barack Obama visited. Bryant’s is a must-stop for politicians, having hosted everyone from Harry Truman to Jimmy Carter to Sarah Palin and John McCain. Bryant’s is considered the grandfather of barbecue in Kansas City and has been at its current location since 1958, with roots going back to the city’s first barbecue stand in the early 20th century.

father of all barbecue places in Kansas City.” Its founders, Arthur and Charlie Bryant, were African-American brothers who worked for Henry Perry, the man who opened what’s considered Kansas City’s first barbecue stand in 1908. The Bryant brothers eventually took over the business, which moved in 1958 to its current location. Calvin Trillin, the humorist

and food writer who was born in Kansas City in 1935, said Bryant’s was also one of the city’s few integrated restaurants when he was growing up. And it’s a must-stop for politicians, having hosted everyone from Harry Truman to Sarah Palin to Barack Obama. Bryant’s has also long been a favorite among baseball fans. Municipal Stadium, which was home to a Negro Leagues team and later several Major League Baseball teams, was just a few blocks away. Municipal closed in 1972, but the Negro Leagues

Baseball Museum is close to Bryant’s, as is the American Jazz Museum and the famous intersection of 18th and Vine, for decades the center of a thriving African-American neighborhood. Bloch says Bryant’s still “gets a line out the door” before every game at Kauffman Stadium, which replaced Municipal, even though it’s a 10-minute drive from Bryant’s on Interstate 70. With the Kansas City Royals in the World Series this year, business at Bryant’s is likely to be robust.

2nd defendant pleads guilty in California tainted beef case SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A second defendant has pleaded guilty in a case alleging that a Northern California slaughterhouse at the center of a massive recall processed and distributed tainted beef. Eugene Corda, an employee of Petaluma-based Rancho Feeding Corp., entered the

plea to one count of aiding and abetting in the distribution of adulterated, misbranded and uninspected meat earlier this month. A co-owner of the slaughterhouse, Robert Singleton, also pleaded guilty to the same charge in August. The two other defendants, co-owner Jesse

Amaral Jr. and Felix Cabrera, are still facing charges. They have pleaded not guilty. Federal prosecutors say the owners schemed with employees to slaughter about 79 cows with skin cancer of the eye. The plant’s operations were halted in February after a series of beef recalls.

Peninsula Clarion, Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Wrong number leads woman to think she’s met Mr. Right Don’t do this just once — give yourself enough time to get beyond the endorphin rush. He may turn out to be Prince Charming, but a woman can never be too careful, and you need to proceed with your eyes wide open. If this becomes a successful relationship, it will be a wonderful “how did you meet?” story.

Abigail Van Buren

DEAR ABBY: My parents just informed me that they have not been practical about their finances. I suspected it based on the ratio of their salaries to their purchases, but it was confirmed during a conversation in which they said they have saved nothing for retirement. More disappointing, they both had advantages that would have set them financially for life had they been smart with their money. On the other hand, I save religiously, and I’m on my way to building the retirement I want for me and my wife. I feel bad for my parents, but I can’t help worrying that everything I am working for is being threatened by their poor choices and unwillingness to

change how they deal with money. When I expressed concern that I would have to support them financially at some point because of this, I was made to feel selfish because of all the sacrifices they made for me over the years. Who is wrong here? — “BAD SON” IN BALTIMORE DEAR SON: Your parents are, for having blown the money they should have been saving and for trying to guilt you into supporting them. (By the way, they’re not alone. MANY Americans in their 50s and 60s have only now awakened to the fact that they won’t have enough — or any — money to supplement their Social Security.) The sacrifices parents make are supposed to be done out of love, not to indenture their children. If there is still time for them to sock away some savings for when they will no longer be working, I suggest they start now. (Suze Orman says that whether you’re in your 30s, 40s or 50s, it’s never too late to start saving for your financial future.) As a GOOD son, ask if they would like your help in investing it. 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. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

HHHH You might want to make a change to your schedule without making a big deal out of it. The person who dropped this surprise on you was looking for a reaction. If you don’t want this behavior to repeat, be calm and direct. Tonight: Flirt up a storm. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You could be exhausted by what is happening around you. You might question what choices you have. Make a point to detach in order to gain a more encompassing perspective at this moment. A family matter will cause a lot of chatter and calls! Tonight: Head home. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHYou keep conversations moving with little effort. Make time to schedule a checkup with the doctor or dentist. Your nerves seem to be more frayed than usual. Dealing with someone at a distance will force you to detach. Tonight: Where you are, everyone has a good time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Tap into your creativity, but don’t take a risk right now; otherwise, it could backfire. Someone — and it might be you — could be overreacting about a financial matter. You might not like what the possibilities are. Try to see the big picture. Tonight: Happy to be alone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You might say too much if you are not careful. You generally weigh your words with care, but a touchy or difficult situation could be taking its toll on you. Friends seem to surround you, and they’ll want to help you perk up. If you can, let it happen. Tonight: All smiles. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

HHHYou could experience low-level fatigue. You might keep replaying a certain situation over and over again in your mind. A must appearance will work out far better than you would have thought possible. Those around you are likely to be impressed. Tonight: Do a vanishing act. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Rethink an agreement involving finances. You could be unusually exhausted by a loved one who is an energizer in your life and full of surprises. Screen calls from friends, as they likely are about social matters. Try to squeeze in some R and R. Tonight: Be nice. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH You could be a major force in a power play without even realizing it. A conversation with a respected associated or someone who wants to be respected could be more informative than you might have imagined. Listen well. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You will be seeking answers. You might be willing to reach out to just about anyone in order to see if they can help. Don’t hesitate to call someone you consider to be an expert. You’ll resolve an issue and come up with a great solution. Tonight: Go for something unusual. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Reach out to a loved one you can count on. At first, it might appear as if your goals are significantly different. Honor your differences, and you could see where there is a similarity. You both might be motivated by the same issue but have different responses. Tonight: Togetherness.

The art of slow cooking Dear Readers: Isn’t it nice to come home at the end of a long day to the fabulous smells of a great meal? You can, and all it takes is a slow cooker and a little planning. Here are a few hints so you can have a tasty and safeto-eat meal: * Don’t place frozen meats in the slow cooker. All meats should be thoroughly thawed before being placed in the slow cooker. * Do make sure you add enough liquid so the meat cooks evenly. * Don’t peek! It is so tempting to lift that lid and take a look, but don’t! Every time you lift the lid, it may add 20 more minutes to the cooking time. * Do make note of the recipes that turn out super, as well as the ones that don’t. — Heloise º Smashing garlic Dear Heloise: I enjoy watching cooking shows, and I always see professional cooks smashing garlic cloves with the side of a big knife. Way too scary for me! I won’t even try it, because I know I will cut my hand! So I came up with the hint to smash garlic under a metal spatula. It’s a safer technique for me. — Diane T. in Pennsylvania Freezing bread Dear Heloise: When buying bread, muffins, etc., I take the slices out of the sleeve and put cut-up pieces of waxed paper between them. I place them back into the sleeve and then into the freezer. Voilå— no more slices stuck together. This makes it easy to use slices as needed, once they are defrosted. — Joan W. in Florida

SUDOKU

By Tom Wilson

By Dave Green

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

A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Virgo if born before 7:12 a.m. (PDT). Afterward, the Moon will be in Libra. HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Oct. 22, 2014: This year you will run into your share of challenges, and you often could feel as if you are in the midst of a power play. Some of you might have very controlling people in your life. The only way to bypass their behavior is not to play their game. If you are single, take your time getting to know someone before considering making a commitment. Be aware that someone special might turn up. If you are attached, the two of you often separate for short periods. The freedom you give each other will intensify the times you are together. LIBRA can be very gracious. 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 might want to reconsider various options that might seem like they are being shoved down your throat. Claim your power, and make choices that work for you. You could be creating a lot of aggravation around you. Don’t worry — it will pass. Tonight: Hang with a dear friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH Pace yourself, and get as much done as possible. You could feel as if you are trying too hard to get on top of a situation. You might need a break more than you realize. Sometimes it’s OK to take an afternoon off from the daily grind. Tonight: Do something just for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

DEAR ABBY: I met a guy over the phone when he called my number by mistake. After a brief conversation, not particularly polite on my part, the call ended. Forty-five minutes later he called me back, saying he couldn’t stop thinking about me. I thought, “Who is this goofball?” Over time, my phone has been “pinging” with messages from him. He has sent his life story, photos and address. He even gave me his Social Security number and told me to run a check on him to see for myself that he’s legitimate. We have been talking for eight months and are making plans to meet. He lives in another state, but he has a sister in mine. Should I meet him in his hometown or let him come to me? I don’t believe this is a game-playing situation. I am 55 years young; he’s 64. We converse on FaceTime daily and at night we have Bible studies together via the Internet. He makes me happy. What is your opinion, and what should I do? — SWEPT AWAY IN GEORGIA DEAR SWEPT AWAY: Your romance seems almost like a Hallmark Channel love story — two strangers who connect because of a wrong number. However, have him visit you first, meet your family, friends and minister. THEN visit him in his hometown and meet HIS friends, children (if he has any), minister, etc.

On September 12, 2014 History was made on the Kenai Peninsula! “Our first fun run with color took place on the Kenai Park Strip. It was a nontimed non-sanctioned fun run and started off with a big bang thanks to the Color Run Canon created by Scott Hamann and the trigger was pulled by our 2014 campaign chairman James Hornaday,” said Lisa Roberts, executive director of the Kenai Peninsula United Way. Along with the cannon, Hamann also designed a special color thrower that shot 4 different “fun” colors used in the race at the “Start”. Giving a very colorful start for those participating in the first Color Run. (All colors were made with corn starch and environmentally safe.) Even though the weather was cold, windy and wet the color canons kept their powder dry, “Scott told me you better get down or it’ll blow your head off, so I got down,” said Judge Hornaday, “but it was a nice homecoming for me to come back to Kenai. I went by our old house and saw a number of old friends here at the race, things seem to be going fine here in Kenai. I’ve support-

Great day for CPH Drive-through flu shots On a blustery, dreary Thursday afternoon hundreds of cars lined up along Fireweed Street next to Central Peninsula Hospital (CPH) for a free flu shot and chapstick compliments of CPH. “We vaccinated 495 people over the age of 18 between 3:00 and 5:30pm with the last car in line coming through right at 5:30,” reported CPH infection preventionist Dana McDonald. Seven UAA nursing students were on hand to help out and keep the drive-through moving quickly, “It’s a great way for them to get some practice in and most importantly we’re vaccinating our community and keeping it healthy. Getting a flu shot is super important according to CDC it’s the number one way to preDonna Peterson of Nikiski cues up for her flu shot at CPH last vent the spread of influenza,” Nursing students get practical experience at CPH Drive-through flu clinic. week. said McDonald. One lady in the passenger seat was watching the driver get his shot and when she felt the student nurse placing a bandage on her arm said, “Really, you gave it to me already? I didn’t feel a thing!” According to McDonald anyone who missed the DriveThrough flu shot clinic should check with their primary care provider or other locations where flu shots are available and be sure to be vaccinated. Anyone over the age of 65 and others with pulmonary disease such as asthma or heart disease, smokers or other high risk individuals are also recommended to get a pneumococcal or pneumonia vaccine that helps prevent pneumonia. “The pneumonia vaccine was not included at the drive-through flu clinic but is recommended for CPH infection preventionist Dana McDonald hands out chap- Cars move quickly at CPH drive-through flu shot clinic. those over age 65 and others in sticks to folks in line for their free flu shot. at risk groups.”

Redoubt Elementary principal proclaims National Mrs. Hale Day

Even though the post office, banks and all state office buildings were open October 1st, nevertheless for parents, students and alumni of Redoubt Elementary School was not only “Walk to School Day” but the first ever National Sharon Hale Day as proclaimed by Redoubt’s principal and (national supreme potentate) John Pothast, “I was planning on thanking Sharon for a multitude of reasons, she is the most full time, part time person anyone has ever had and whether it’s our fundraiser or Walk to School Day or the hundreds of other things she is certainly deserving of a National Day of recognition by unanimous consent of everyone who has every attended or had a child attend Redoubt while Sharon has been here,” potentate Pothast told the Dispatch in an interview. “It was absolutely a surprise for me and the terrible thing about it was that I wasn’t here

to hear the proclamation on the morning announcements because I was walking back to the church to get my car after walking to school,” laughed Hale. “Thank you is really all I can think to say so Thank you!” For 13 some years Hale has coordinated the local participation in the international Walk to School Day which comes a week following the local day. “This is Alaska, the cold and darkness gets here earlier so we do our walk earlier,” said Hale. According to Hale the event is important not only because it gets the kids outside and wide awake to start school with some exercise but with the help of Jane Fellman of the CPH Safekids program helps kids learn how to keep safe and wear reflective clothing and reflector buttons when walking to school. One difference in the walk to school route this year is the newly completed roundabouts

that removed the 4-way stop at the intersection of Redoubt and Binkley Street. “Kids and drivers have to learn new safety procedures at that intersection. In general we always want drivers to watch out for kids and I’m glad we’ve had them open soon enough so drivers and walkers can have some time to practice before the snow and ice come. Walkers and bikers should not be in the roundabout but go past to the pedestrian walkway prior to or after the roundabout, however drivers should always watch for walkers and bikers who may be in the wrong place or forget where they should be when the snow arrives. The key is to not just look but to move your head and actively look before entering the roundabout and be sure to slow down. We tell our kids to make eye contact with the driver whether walking or on bike before proPrincipal John Pothast proclaims Walk to School Day as National Mrs. Hale Day. ceeding,” said Pothast.

Shake Out! Don’t Freak Out! Alaskan Earthquake drill On 10/16 at 10:16am a major earthquake did not happen in Alaska, but the Great Alaskan Shake Out did and because of the annual training lives may be saved and injuries prevented when the next major quake does strike Alaska. The theme of this year’s drill was “Shake out, don’t freak!” reported Pegge Erkeneff, KPBSD communications specialist. Schools in the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District participated in the Great Alaska ShakeOut where all students practice the “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” drill. KPBSD students and staff joined more than 66,000

Alaskans who registered to participate. Dave Jones, assistant superintendent of instructional support, said, “We need to be prepared for incidents we hope never happen, but if they do, we can minimize the danger to our students, staff, and community.” Earthquake preparation and the proper “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” technique is valuable safety education for our students and employees. We will also practice a radio check-in to the district office from each of our schools following this earthquake drill. At Redoubt Elementary the drill was deemed a success by

Principal John Pothast, “The kids and the teachers take this drill seriously just like they do fire drills. We live in Alaska where earthquakes are probably more frequent than fires so kids need to learn what we do when we have the next earthquake. The staff also works on what we would do in an actual quake when it’s not just a training drill, we have procedures in place and we practice a lot as far as what do we do in any real emergency. A fire or intruder is usually site specific, but in an earthquake an entire area is affected which means first responders are spread thin in such an aftermath. We know

that kids and parents will be scared so we do a lot of training outside of the drill as to what we do in the aftermath of an emergency so we can be as self-sufficient as possible,” he explained. See DRILL, page A-5
